Just so we're clear, do you mean a footnote or a page footer?   I suspect the latter.

It will also matter if you just want to remove a footer, if that's what you're actually removing, from the first page, a single subsequent page, or all pages.

See: http://jscholes.net/project/codex/
For everything having to do with Codex.
I belong to something like 7 different public library systems and at this
point, I'm able to get pretty much everything I want through them. Amazon
partners with libraries, but I always select the ePub downloadable version
now. It more or less eliminates the Kindle conversion step. I can't recall
the last time I had to pick a kindle formatted title to then convert via
Codex.
Seriously people, support your local library.
I still have the older Kindle program installed just in case. It really does
suck accessibility-wise, but for conversion purposes with Codex, you only
want it for the sole ability to download the book in question. The trickiest
part is getting registered as that part isn't Jaws accessible. There's a
walkthrough on that Codex site that explains.

I have the latest version of the Kindle app. However, reading results are
extremely inconsistent with JAWS. Sometimes, nothing on the screen is read.

My good man, are you saying that I could use Codex to convert Kindle content
to plain text, thereby obviating the reader altogether? I would love this
option. Where can I download Codex?

Provided you can provide your e-mail address and its password, the rest of the account setup under Outlook (365 and several generations before it) is entirely automated.

Gmail is definitely in Microsoft's database of providers as far as the setup process being able to find server names and ports on its own.

Hi.

As long as you are running version 1.19 or later of the Kindle app JAWS
should provide the same level of accessibility as what you're
experiencing with NVDA. I actually would not recommend downloading an
earlier version with Amazon's accessibility plug-in. If my memory is

the virtual cursor, which is what you probably want if you're using JAWS
for reading your Kindle content. Did you download the app directly from

As a side note the one exception for when you would want to use an

Kindle content into plain text format which will allow you to read the
content using other programs or even other devices, such as being able
to use Voice Dream Reader on your iPhone to read a Kindle book.

Hi all,
I have been using kindle for pc and have met few issues with the latest jaws
on books I have downloaded. I can read in Braille as well as listen, and
unlike with previous versions, I was recently able to read the book's
footnotes as links in their place. I cannot speak about nvda and I can
really not know what has gone wrong for Orlando, however I would say
that, although not perfect, kindle has become very very usable for me.

I've got an older version of Kindle for PC installed on a couple of

While I'm a QRead user for eBooks, it would be nice to know if the Kindle

Hello, everyone.

 

You may recall that yesterday, I mentioned a problem with Jaws not reading the full headers in an e-mail when going through a list view on my Outlook e-mail folders.

 

I now get only the subject line, the time of the message, and the size.  The date of the message is missing.

 

My folder pane is set to normal, and my reading pane is set to off.

 

Interestingly, if I shut down and re-boot my computer, messages are listed normally for a while, but eventually, the partial listing issue returns.

 

I am convinced that this has something to do with a recent Offidce 365 update, since the problem has only occurred for the past few days.

 

I’d appreciate knowing if anyone else has experienced this issue, and what you have done as a more permanent fix.

 

I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2019 on this Windows 10 PC.  My windows 10 version is version 1809.
