Hi all. If this is improper to ask this sorry, but it really is a Jaws issue.

Using Jaws 2019, with Windows 10 and Chrome and/or IE.


If any of you are playing fantasy baseball for this season, please go to your League Team page , and please try to help me find the "Undroppaable List", if possible.

There is supposed to be, with  ESPN trying to help, , a header named Players, and under it, is a list of 6 or 7 items and one of them is "Undroppable".

I, and some other blind fantasy players, sure cannot find it.

My sighted friend said the same thing, that it is Under the Players heading.

If anybody can help, sure would appreciate it. This is not a world shattering thing to find, but very interested in finding such things.

Thanks,

Morey Worthington

Hi Steve,

 

Thanks for the  reply. I have seen that kind of behaviour before with links in chrome, but for these links , even if I move up or down from the link the link name is still not being spoken by Jaws for some reason. I’ve even tried CTRL and f to bring up the search, but even the search function can’t seem to find the link names , it’s like they just aren’t showing for some strange reason in chrome and Firefox.

Hi Paul,

 

Sometimes I find in Chrome, it will say the word Link, then underneath will be the name of the link when you down arrow.  Is it doing that?  Like this:-

 

Link

Favourites

Link

Whatever

 

On separate lines in the browse buffer.

 

You see this too on the Wordpress Dashboard, if you go into any option like Updates, then look for the dashboard link, it is not spoken.

 

I believe this to be a Chrome problem.

 

All the best

Hi  everyone,

 

I’m building a word press site. The theme I’m using seems nice and accessible and is working well with screen readers, but I’ve come across 4 links which aren’t being read out by  jaws in chrome and Firefox and jaws just says link, but yet if I use IE the links are read out fine by Jaws  and will for example say ‘link favorites’. I’ve tried with NVDA too and get the same issue. I’m hoping to reach out to the developer/author of the word press theme and see if they can make any adjustments so Jaws will read  out what these four links actually are  , rather than just saying link, but I wanted  to go back to him with a solution as to how to possibly fix the link, so does anyone know the technical reason links wouldn’t read their names in chrome and Firefox but yet would work fine in internet explorer?

 

Many thanks in advance for any help

How do I force a rescan, , when using Backblaze with Jaws?

Jessica D
 

Hi


I’ve been using Backblaze for the past little while. I really like it, but I needed to email support, because I’m having a problem backing my data up. They told me I need to force a rescan, by holding down the alt key, while clicking the restore options button. How can I do this?

This is true. You can connect from Home to Pro just fine, though. RDP server isn’t available on 10 Home. This is why I was curious if JAWS would work with something like Teamviewer. I haven’t tested it yet, and may need to email VFO about it, but if you’re already using Home it seems almost pointless to upgrade to Pro just for RDP. I mean I’d do it, but only on my equipment. I do tech support for the parents, though, and I wouldn’t make them upgrade to Pro just so I can remote in if I didn’t have to.

Remote Desktop allows you to connect to your computer provided you know your home computer’s IP address.

You probably also have to set up port forwarding in your router to allow the connection and of course you have to make sure Remote Desktop is enabled for the computer you want to connect to.

If you don’t have a fixed IP address which for a home connection is likely you would have to set up something called a “dynamic DNS” which allows you to set up an easy to remember name and if your IP address changes the service will automatically update this so that the name you set up still works, below is a website with more information:

 

https://dyn.com/dns/dyndns-pro-free-trial/

 

Lastly, if you use Jaws you may have to contact Vispero, I think Remote Desktop may not be something which works with a basic Jaws license, if I go to Jaws > About it says the following in addition to the version information etc.:

 

Upgrades Remaining: 2

Remote Access: Enabled

Tandem Direct: Disabled

Re: need steps to create keyboardshortcut forGoogle Chrome

 

I put Google Chrome as the first app on the taskbar and this way I can get to it from anywhere with the shortcut Windows Key + 1.
If I want to go to one of the last few visited websites I can press Windows Key + Alt + 1 to bring up the jump list for Chrome and down arrow through a list of the last sites I visited, you can determine how many items show in the jumplist although I can't remember right now where that setting is.
You can also open another instance of an application by pressing Windows Key + Shift + whatever number of the number row corresponds to the program you want.

there are couple of alternatives availabel but, I wish to recommend the below method.
1. in the start search, type chrome and open the context menu.
2. click on the open file location.
3. see the file type for the chrome.
4. if the file type is shortcut, just copy to the desktop.
if not, open the chrome context menu and click on sent to submenu and click on create shortcut [desktop].
this may help.

press the windows key and start typing chrome.
once you hear google chrome, press the application key or shift+f10,
down arrow to and enter on send to or just press n,
down arrow to and press enter on desktop or press d and enter.
shortcut should be on the desktop.

hope this is what you wanted.

Hi,

Lately NVDA quits on me all the time without a restart, no matter what I do, how much I reinstall/reconfigure/don't install specific add ons. So teamviewer is a nice addition when NVDA remote stops working.

That’s because JAWS Tandem, like NVDA Remote, relies on the screenreader to be up and stable to work. If JAWS or NVDA crashes, good luck. That’s why I was kind of hoping for Teamviewer. I don’t care which screenreader I end up using, honestly. But the ability to restart it when it inevitably falls over without needing to be in front of the machine would be helpful.

Hi,

 

I did use TeamViewer now and then, with JAWS being installed on all machines.

I remember that I had to do quite a bit of key pass-throughs to control some of the remote JAWS’ features.

Your best bet is to install NVDA on both machines, have it start up on the machine you want to control, and install NVDA Remote on both.

Works very well, and it will even come up when doing updates and restarting the remote machine or when your connection is bad now and then.

JAWS Tandem has the disadvantage of not reconnecting or losing connection when JAWS restarts for some reason or other.

Re: remote access

Understood. I’ve made NVDA crash in the weirdest ways before, and doing what I do will probably do it again, so was thinking corner cases. It’s also why I don’t use Tandem—if JAWS goes sideways, I’m pooched until I’m local to the machine.
