Re: Saving Bookmarks to Favorites #jaws #novice

John Covici
 

What I do is go use alt-d infirefox and I think it works in chrome as
well, but control-l does work, control-a, control-c to copy to
clipboard, go to that favorites folder, do alt-h-w-s and create an
internet shortcut. Sounds more complicated that it is, but this keeps
my bookmarks the way I want them.

Hello, I am using JAWS 18 with Windows 7. I often need to switch between Firefox and Chrome to interact with certain websites and when I save a book mark on one browser, I don't have access to it on the other browser. I liked the
Favorites folder that Internet Explorer uses. Is there any way to get sites that are book marked in Firefox or Chrome to appear in the Windows Favorites folder? That way, no matter which browser that I have as my default browser at the
time, I can just go to the Favorites folder to find my saved sites and go to them.

Then, tab over to “open”, and highlight the PDF you want to convert to a Word document.

 

Hit enter on open, and you will get a message saying that the conversion will begin once you give your ok.

 

Once the conversion is done, the file will be an editable Word document, and will have the .docx file extension.

 

Let me know if this makes sense.

Hi David,

 

This might be a good question for Microsoft accessibility. I rarely use Word, but I just opened a blank Word document, typed something and then did what you described, i.e. I pressed F12, I typed a file name, selected “PDF” from the format drop-down and then selected a folder and I was able to save the document as a Pdf without a problem.

I also use Office 365 with Windows 10 and Jaws 2019. As an alternative and as long as you use Windows 10, you could always print the document and select “Microsoft Print to PDF”, this will also create an accessible PDF file.

Re: Turning on DVS on a video link

David & his pack of dogs
 

The comment was based solely on the fact that this topic has been going on for days.  Thus I mused if the problem was with the CBC. No, I did not read your comment in its entirety for the reason mentioned above.  I thought this is covering something that has already been  beaten to death and rehashed, died then resurrected again. I apologize if my opinion of the CBC offended you and others. The expression I used to refer to the CBC was used by someone from the U K not mine. The CBC does have a purpose.

appropriate here. Obviously you don’t know that almost all the programs the CBC offers have described audio. The CBC also has a strong accessibility statement and as all government Canada websites theirs also is very accessible as are their iOS apps such as CBC News, CBC Music etc.

If you had read my replies you would have also read the explanations I provided as to how to turn on described audio for programs on the CBC TV website.

Hello,

I am using JAWS 2019 with Word 365.  When I hit F12 to save a document, and I want to save it as a PDF, when I go to the save as file type combo box, arrow down to PDF, tab to the save button and hit enter, it says the file is being used by another application or user and will not save it. This used to work. Any ideas about what I should do?save it as a PDF


Torrent software accessible with JAWS

I have Utorrent, name is really Greek letter MU torrent. Can't find at
all a tool bar to allow me to search. Someone please recommend a
torrent they use successfully.

Thanks,

Nance

Re: Turning on DVS on a video link

If you are using your iPad, go to settings. Then go to General and Accessibility. Under, “media, “heading, go to where it says audio descriptions. Make sure this is on bye  going into this and making sure prefer  audio descriptions is on. Text beside this should say something like, “when available, Use audio descriptions. “It’s a little hard to get to, but after you get into settings and general, switch your rotor to headings. Then, just go to the heading that says media. Need anymore help? Right back to me personally, or write back to this group.
Thank you for your question and I hope it helped, me giving detailed instructions.

Don,

 

If the virtual cursor is off you don’t have to arrow or tab or anything, just press the letter “d”, press enter for play or pause etc., it works well for me.

Sieghard, thanks for the link to the help article.  I tried JAWS key plus z and got virtual cursor, then JAWS read nothing.  On the CBC Gems page I arrowed around but could not find the DVS or CC icons.

Here is a little help article I found:

 

Activating described video on CBC Gem

 

Should you wish to activate described video on gem.cbc.ca, simply click on the "D))" icon which appears at the bottom of the viewing screen, as shown below:

Please note that the described video will only activate 5 - 10 seconds after clicking on this icon, so it is important that you click on it once (and only once), and wait.

Similarly, should you wish to deactivate described video, you will need to click on the icon once, and wait for 5 - 10 seconds for the change to take effect.

 

Of course this means clicking on an icon, but pressing D without the virtual cursor active will do the same as clicking the icon.

I found that described audio started playing almost instantly and pressing D again turned it off almost instantly, but I do have a very fast fiber connection and I assume they mention the 5 to 10 seconds in cases where people have a slower internet connection.

 

The below CBC Help webpage goes into a bit more detail and lists available keyboard shortcuts for turning described video on/off, also for closed captioning, turning volume up or down or fast forwarding/rewinding:

 

Tips for using the video player

 

I would still recommend you try the free CBC Gem app on your iPod Touch.

 

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Could you send a link of one of the programs?

I usually just go to cbc.ca, then / and the name of whatever program I want.  When I did phone the CBC, I was told there’s a button to press to turn on DVS, but I couldn’t find it.  I only used my IPod Touch once, when away from home, and that’s when the DVS link appeared near the end of the video being played.

Hi Don,

 

Could you provide a bit more information about where exactly you go? Are you on https://gem.cbc.ca
