Re: Turning on DVS on a video link

Richard Turner
 


Not being in Canada, I'm not sure, but do they have a customer service line you could call, or at least write?
On your iPod Touch, check under accessibility settings, and in the media section, make sure Audio description is on.
That could do it for you but you still may need their link to enable the service.
HTH,
Richard

Navigating tables in Chrome

John Doering
 

Hello:

Any ideas on how to better navigate items in tables on Chrome web sites.

Currently, arrowing up or down moves through each item in a row until the end of a row then goes to the next row.  If the table is large, this can take a good bit of time.

Tried using the control + windows key + j command to jump to the row and column coordinates, but does not seem to work in these tables.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

I use the mobile Facebook site. I think you’ll have better luck at m.facebook.com. It’s a clean interface without the clutter.

Hello list-members,

Much of the time, I access Facebook with my iPhone. However, I would also like to use this program with my PC, or rather become more proficient. I have identified a number of the keyboard commands specific to JAWS and Facebook, but cannot find the keystroke that allows me to post a message to a specific group.

For anyone here who uses Facebook with JAWS and a PC or laptop, I would appreciate contacting you of-list to go through some of the commands and to identify through discussion some commands that I may not be aware of. On a related note, reviewing the Navigation process would be helpful, drawing on your experience.

I would appreciate any and all assistance.

Blessings to all, Justin

On button in Wikipedia articles

Can anyone tell me what the “on” button is in wikipedia articles? If unchecked, it just says on button. Once it is pressed, it says On button, checked. I can’t see anything change whichever way this button is set.

Re: JAWS Not reading full line with up and down arrows

JAWS used to do this if the page wasn’t maximized. Also, if another window was opened, covering the page you are reading.

cannot access evernote using jaws2019

Jessica D <jldail13@...>
 

Hi,

 

I want to export all my notes out of evernote, so I can delete my account.

Well, that’s not working.

 

I just tried to login with google, and had to have sighted assistance, because jaws won’t read it very well.

On top of that, it failed.

 

What can I do?

 

I can’t use the website, because tit doesn’t have an export option.

Any suggestions on how to solve this would be very helpfu.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

 


Re: JAWS Not reading full line with up and down arrows

Richard Turner
 

1. Have you made sure the screen is maximized?
2. Is some other window open, like an update process or something?
3. If this is on the same computer, how long have you tried to have two versions of word coexisting? That is generally a very bad idea from what I have been told by I.T professionals.

Re: Searching for accessible registry cleaners

 

Due to a recent "link breaking" error in the previously posted link, I'm reposting the link to the article itself:  Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools

Re: Searching for accessible registry cleaners

 

This will be my only post on this matter, and it's to say, don't bother.

Registry cleaners are virtually useless at best and can cause a lot of system instability at worst.  Microsoft does not recommend their use nor does any "tech geek" group I'm aware of.  Most, in fact, specifically warn against their use.  I shall quote something frequently posted on Bleeping Computer by one of our Global Moderators who's also a security guru:

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons.

Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools

Be sure to read Microsoft's support policy for the use of registry cleaning utilities in that topic...Microsoft does not support the use of registry cleaners.

Re: now i have a problem with copying new password from webmail to notepad?

JM Casey
 

Why do you want to copy the password?
Passwords are designed, normally, so that you can't see them as you type them. I believe that normally you can't just select the text of a password and paste it somewhere else and expect it to just show up. That'd be a pretty huge security risk.

Don't tell me you've forgotten what it actually is?
