moderated Help with Amazon order

Shirley Tracy
 

Dear List,

 

I am using JAWS 2018 (professional) and Windows 10. I tried placing an order that was to be delivered to my daughter in San Diego, which I have done in the past. This time, however, I was not given the list of addresses to select from—only mine—and I couldn’t find any way to change the delivery from my house. Has anyone else had this problem? Is JAWS no longer seeing the place where you can select other address? I tried using IE and then Firefox.

I telephoned the Accessibility number but the very nice agent has no idea what’s happening. She can see my list of other addresses and has no idea why I couldn’t choose one.

 

Help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

 

Shirley

That actually depends on the version of Outlook being used.  Google has had a mechanism in place for allowing specific apps/applications to have access to specific parts of your Google Account, e.g. mail, calendar, contacts, for some time now.

I've got "Allow Less Secure Apps" turned on for myself but also have set folks up to have certain email clients be able to access Gmail without that.

Hey, everyone.
 
Hope someone can help me with my inability to reassign the tab and shift tab keys to next link and previous link. To my dismay, I discovered that the l and shift l keys cause focus to move from the search box in the JAWS find dialog to whatever control in the dialog uses l as a shortcut. Now, when trying to define the tab key as link, instead of tab being entered into the shortcut key field, focus moves to the next control. So how was the key originally assigned, and, how do I get it back?
 
Thanks for your help!

moderated Re: Windows Live Mail spell checker

 

Marty,

         Provided you're not using POP access, you might just consider uninstalling and reinstalling WLM 2012, as clearly the behavior you're seeing is not intended just based upon the settings available.

         Should you wish to go that route, I archived the Windows Essentials 2012 installer on my Google Drive.  This was downloaded from Microsoft's site approximately one week before it was pulled at end of official support:   Windows Live Mail (Windows Essentials) 2012 (ZIP format)

Hi,

Not sure if this will work for Windows Live mail, but give it a shot.

Select the text you have typed. Then, run the spell check.

On Outlook, this will only check for grammatical errors for the selected
text.

Locate the number of the footnote you want to delete. JAWS doesn't always read it. Shift-right arrow to select the space following the number and press delete. You have to delete there, not in the footnote text.

To see your list of footnotes go to the review tab on the ribbon to show notes, alt-s, then h.

Good luck!

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.

To add to what Dean has written you can also buy a program from Brian Hartgen called J-say. J-say and J-Dictate are both voice dictation programs that allow you to have an accessible interface with Dragon when using JAWS. The difference is that J-say not only allows for voice dictation but you can also completely control your computer, such as opening programs, navigating menus and documents, etc. J-say is great for someone needing total hands-free control of the computer. J-dictate, from what I understand, is just for dictation. It's ideal for people who can control the computer with their hands but who just may want to use their voice to enter text as opposed to, or in addition to, the keyboard.

I have not used either of these programs and so I can't offer any feedback from personal experience. However, I have used his Leasey program which is, essentially, an addon to the JAWS screen reader which provides additional functionality and features not already in JAWS. If J-say and J-dictate are of equal quality to Leasey then I can only conclude they are nothing short of amazing as that is how I feel about Leasey. His software is totally dependent on JAWS. This means that if you are not running JAWS or if you're using a different screen reader his software won't function.

There are several options for dictation depending on how much money you can spend. I haven't tried dictation that comes with office 365, so if somebody else has, I look forward to hearing the result. It might accomplish what you want.

Outside of that, generally, one needs a dictation application, one that is able to turn voice text into print, and some ability to access that applications interface with the screen reader, mainly for making corrections. Windows comes with a free, built-in, dictation program, Windows speech recognition, and  you can also buy various versions of Dragon. Windows speech recognition is generally regarded as being inferior to Dragon.

In terms of accessing these programs with a screenreader, A program called Dictation Bridge has been written. It gives access to Windows speech recognition and Dragon,  and it is free. The development of its interface with NVDA is more advanced, but it is also said to work with jaws. http://dictationbridge.com/

If you have a version of Dragon, and want to get the best quality screen reader interface, for simple dictation, you can buy J-Dictate from Hartgen Consultancy for work with JAWS.

Hi all,

I have lots of things in Braille that I’d like to put into word docs, pdf,  or even .txt docs.  Does anyone have any software they’d recommend?  I’d read the Braille files into the computer and save them somehow so they’d be accessible for cleaning up and saving in those document formats?

 

Has anyone tried dictating with the software that comes with office 365?  If so, how successful was it?

 

Thanks.

That is odd, in Outlook Express and Outlook, by default it ignores quoted text, that is, the stuff we are replying to.
But if someone goes into the spell settings in these programs, you could inadvertently turn it on, because as you tab through, the first part is what to check, and before  you know it, you are in the part  for what to ignore, and you could change that to the behavior that we typically don't want.

If you are asking if there is a setting to allow spell checker to ignore quoted material, then to my knowledge the answer is "no."

The first thing one should do in a compose window, if the bottom quoted material is not needed to retain context for the reply, is to delete it.  A CTRL+A followed by either the Delete key or backspace accomplishes this.   Then the only thing the spell checker has to check is what you've written.

It is entirely possible I am succumbing to "misty, watercolor memories" here, as I haven't routinely touched WLM in quite a while.

It's still best practice to delete any quoted material that's not relevant to the new material, and in a lot of exchanges that means everything, as active participants know instantly where the reply belongs in a topic thread because they've been reading it all along.
