Hello All,

 

This is new to me as of the latest JAWS 2019.  It happens only in Word.  Any idea how to turn this off?

Hi,

Tell your friend to open Outlook and press CTRL+N to start a new message, and CTRL+R to reply to a message.

Office 365 is a subscription service, you can pay monthly or for the entire year which is cheaper. Among some other benefits like 1 Tb of OneDrive storage and getting 60 Skype minutes each month the Office 365 subscription also includes a license to download the full Office suite and install it on  up to 5 computers. This of course includes Outlook as well as Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc. But you only get to use the full set of Office apps and features as long as you pay your subscription.

You probably didn’t get a response back before because your question is pretty hard to understand.

Even now the only question I can glean from this is:

“Is there outlook or office 365 email ?”

Yes. Outlook is the e-mail client in Microsoft office.

 

If you want your friend to be helped by the list, I think you’ll need to be a bit more specific, or maybe even get her on here to ask the question herself.

Does she have outlook? I guess that’d be a good place to start. Is she trying to set up e-mail with an iSP? Gmail? Something else?

Um....well, it'd be great for text-based games, but not so great if you need
to rely on audio output, obviously.
Even for text-based scenarios, I'm not sure it'd be the best solution for
real-time versus turn-based play.

moderated Re: best web browser to use with JAWS?

Both Firefox and Chrome should together cover most needs. I find that Firefox has a problem loading pages with a lot of content (even a lot of text) and chrome occasionally hangs or “gets stuck”, but both browsers are pretty good. I’m a little disturbed by Google’s attitude toward privacy and ad-blockers, so even though their browser is fast, I tend to use Firefox more often. There are definitely sites that function better using Chrome though, so you should have both. There in’t a limit to the number of browsers you can have on your computer; I just wish some of the many third party ones (seriously, take a look online sometime, there are literally dozens of web browsers out there) worked a little better with screen-readers. Sadly, work mostly seems to only be done on the major competitors.

I vote for Chrome. When the new Edge comes out, I suspect it will take over, and I’m not sure how much difference between the two a user will notice. I don’t recommend the current Edge, it’s being phased out anyway, and I’ll let others praise Firefox.

Hi.
There was a reason I decided not to try Brave, but I now can't recall what
it was. Since Vivaldi, as great as it sounds and looks, isn't really as
usable as I'd like, I may try this again.
The JAWS keystrokes probably don't work because there's been no specific
scripts written for the Brave browser. I find that some functionality is
lost in waterfox, too, though it generally works pretty well.

I have been using Brave and I really like it. I'm finding it faster than
Firefox and less complicated to configure than Chrome. But, as always, your
mileage may vary. So far I've found a focus problem on my grocery store's
site (Hy-Vee) and I haven't figured out how to read tables, as the Jaws
keystrokes aren't working.

Hi Sharron,

 

I actually found bookmarks the hardest transition when I first moved from IE to chrome, but now use chrome all the time and almost never use IE any more. One tip I can give regarding bookmarks which I found really helpful with Chrome is there is a key combination to quickly access bookmarks in a list similar to how IE displays them. If you press and hold ALT and then press F (it should say context menu at this stage), then release alt and f, press b (it should say something like bookmarks sub menu), simply press right cursor key and you’re in the list of bookmarks. I realised As I wrote that it actually sounds more complicated than it actually is , but I do find this key stroke a really quick and easy way of accessing bookmarks in chrome. Hope that helps.

Hi James,

I agree with many of the others. I really like Chrome. It's easy to use, is really fast, and, once you get used to the way the settings menu is set up, it's easy to navigate as you can navigate the settings by heading.

Hope this helps,

As far as stability, with JAWS is the best with Chrome. Edge still has some issues which make it a less than ideal browser and Firefox has a refresh problem. I find that nowadays NVDA is a lot better on the web than JAWS, so perhaps consider using different screen readers.

Well, ie and firefox both have menu bars with things divided off into categories, chrome has a menu button where everything is thrown together and you just have to keep arrowing down until you find what you want.  Bookmarks in firefox are fairly simple, as long as you put the bookmark in the right place when you save it.  Bookmarks are hard enough to get to in chromium-based browsers that I generally don't mess with them; if I found a thing once I'll either find it again or use it enough to remember the address.
