Re: More activity

Don Walls
 

I appreciate the comments about relevant emails. I finally left one list this week, fed up with stupid junk, rants and irrelevant social commentary. I found a lot of helpful information on that list over time but frequency of emails was very high each day and much of it more as though the list were a chat line. I really appreciate that members of this list confine comments to tech support. As a relative duffer on tech (limited to emails, googling and simple editing), it's very helpful for me.

Thanks to all.

Don

I much rather have a group where posts are fewer but relevant and where there is not a bunch of unrelated chatter.

I am on the Viphone group, for example, and compared to the traffic on that group years ago it’s positively quiet now which works just fine for me, being on these lists is not my main job and while I also learn stuff I probably answer more questions than I ask. I enjoy that, but if the traffic on a group gets to be too much and people constantly ask simple questions which they could find the answers to very easily if they just took a few minutes to search the archives or Google then it becomes a problem. The exception maybe is when somebody is really completely new to all of this stuff and they just don’t yet have the skills on how to find this information on their own. I don’t even know how often somebody asked something and I provided an answer which maybe I didn’t know in my head, but which took me 2 minutes to find doing a Google search. One example from the Viphone list is when somebody mentions an app which maybe I also never heard about and then people ask “What does this app do” or “Is this a free or paid app”. All it takes is to do a Google search for “App name on the App Store” or “App Name on iTunes” and typically the first search result is a link to the app in question on the app store where you can read the description, release notes from the latest update and whether the app is free or, If not, how much it costs.

Activity on any list is directly dependent on the subscribers, and on good ones there will always be lulls as well as sudden crushes of activity, particularly in the advent of new releases.

This list is far from silent, but nor is it frenetic most of the time.

Another version of David Moore's excellent Chrome Browser Tutorial with headings

Richard Turner
 

Greetings,

Since David gave blanket permission to put his tutorial out there and everywhere, and I don’t like using bookmarks in Word, I did a version with Headings.  Pressing insert+f6 brings up the headings list and you can then arrow down and hit enter on the section you want.

I also did a tiny bit of grammar editing and one or two typos. 

I put it on my web site, and here is the direct link to the word docx file:

Re: The best accessible RSS-reader to Google Chrome with JAWS 2019

Gerald Levy
 


To be perfectly blunt, the most accessible RSS feed reader is still the one built into IE.  Not the one for Chrome or the one for Firefox.  The RSS reder built into Thunderbird is also pretty accessible.  There may be a few third party
RSS feed readers that are JAWS accessible, but I haven't found any that are as accessible or convenient as the one built into IE.

having Jaws read cell contents

Tom <tomcat509@...>
 

Hi,

 

Using: latest W10 nd latest Jaws 2019

 

While in a web site table, how can Jaws be made to read the contents of a cell letter by letter when required?

 

By pressing the arrow keys, Jaws reads the cell contents in full but sometimes it is useful to study the cell contents character by character. How can this be achieved?

 

Thanks

 

Tom

 


Re: need some help with being able to read a map with jaws

Is there a way you can input the latitude and longitude in the search?
How would you do it?

This is a long shot, but if you plug the latitude and longitude
coordinates into the Google search edit field, Google might return the
actual location in the search results. Obviously, there would be no way
for JAWS to interpret a map.

So i'm working on getting a new position dispatching in public safety.
1 of the parts of the job is, that when a caller calls in and they
can't tell you their location, i'll basicly need to find them on a
map. So, i know that i'll have the lattitude and longitude so that's
a start. I need some input on how to handle something like this with
jaws, if it's even possible. Anyone done such a thing?
