Dean:

Thank you for responding.

Aira is not an option and I am not sure what you mean by

 

the JAWS option to help you with inaccessible JAWS feature

 

If you could explain further, it would be  appreciated.

 

Thanks,

If you have your own business, use the Aira business option to get help from an agent. If you use JAWS, use the JAWS option to help you with inaccessible JAWS feature. Or, use a quick five minute Aira call to find the highlighted items.

Subject: Identifying highlighted text on a web site

 

Hello:

I received a  Email with a link to a policy from one of my suppliers.

When I entered  on the link, it opened in Chrome, which is my default browser.

Within this document, there are price lists and the Email states that the items that are either new or changed are highlighted in yellow.

I need to identify these items so I can compare them to our selling price.

I tried going through each line of the item lists and using JAWS key plus 5, but all said black on black.

Unfortunately I cannot provide the web site to you because the information is confidential.

Any ideas on how I may be able to identify these highlighted items?

Any assistance would be appreciated and thanks in advance.

Try using the color attribute sound scheme. To get there press jaws key alt and s, like sam.

Arrow to color, or just press c. This should let you read the text, and when the color changes, it will tell you.

 

I hope this helps.

There is a way to search attributes for a particular background color, and if and when I find it again, I will let you know.

you need two audio devices to accomplish this.
does the headset connect via USB or does it plug into 1/8" audio ports?
if by USB, you can have JAWS speak thru the default device in Windows,
which is usually the speakers, and use the headset for something else.
if the headset plugs into 1/8" audio ports, what you want to do isn't
possible.

What application are you talking about and do you
use Windows 10 or are still on Windows 7.
In Windows 10 you can select sound devices by application in Settings > System > Sounds, tab to "Advanced sound options, App volume and device preferences", activate the link and then tab until you hear "Input list box, system sounds". Here you can arrow down and you should be able to find your application.
Of course in quite a few applications such as Skype you can simply select which sound device you want to use in the app.

moderated Re: There has been no update to reported issues regarding pronunciation dictionary not saving new entries

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

Hi all. Ever since 2020 beta 1, I have been unable to add new entries to Default.jdf, although I can add new entries to another dictionary with the default entries copied into it. Vispero tech support claims that they cannot duplicate this problem. But there's nothing so special about both my machines' configurations that would preclude saving dictionary entries, especially since entries can be saved to another file. The problem is that if I want those entries to apply globally, I must use Default.jdf. Is this happening to anyone else?

I can’t find a hotkey or procedure to go to a next page in a google sheed with jaws 19 and last firefox.

 

I found a overview of the available hotkeys on the follwowing page:

And in the accessibility item is also no action for this available I think.

 

Any hint is very welcome

I don't know whether it is still necessary to turn off Protected View, but it may be. I would suggest just being aware of it, and either deactivate it for individual documents, if this is still needed, or turn it off entirely within the preferences.

Hi everyone



I look after an IP-scanner where I can scan my home network and find IP-addresses on the connected clients, see more details, for example the MAC-addresses etc.



I have tried the program with the name " Advanced IP Scanner" from https://www.advanced-ip-scanner.com/, but the program has problems with the accessibility for screen readers. JAWS cannot see all information.



I using both Windows 8.1 and the latest build of Windows 10 64-bit, and also the latest version of JAWS for Windows 2019.



Have some person here on this mailing list experiences with other programs there can do what I describe above?



Thanks in advance for your answer, and have a nice day.
