Hello list:

One of the e-mails in my (WLM) in box is proving difficult to delete. When
I press the "d" key, a bell sounds followed by the message: "An unknown
error has occurred". This has happened before, and can't remember the
procedure to delete this particular message. Other "unwanted" messages can
be deleted in the usual manner.

Sincerely,

Yes, and you can similarly create a shortcut if you are already in a folder.

The same steps apply, make sure no file or subfolder is selected, if one is selected press Control + Spacebar to deselect it, then bring up the application menu, select “New” or use “w” and the rest is the same as on the desktop.

Thanks, Sieghard.  I was using I E for years because it was easy to paste a shortcut to radio stations and the like that I like to listen too. Then put them into folders.  Now, with your suggestion I can use different browsers.  Some stations when using the listen live link, do not support I E anymore.  Thus I’ve had to use Edge for that sight. My biggest complaint for using Fire fox or Chrome is the inability to be able to paste short cuts to my favorite websites or ones that I want to remember. With your help, I can just effortlessly create a shortcut to the preferred website or link, no muss no fuss.

A way to quickly create a desktop shortcut is nice, but it’s also not difficult to create one manually.

Just go to the address bar, copy the URL, minimize to the desktop and make sure nothing has focus, then press the application key or Shift + F10, arrow to “New” or press “w”, expand with the right arrow and arrow down to “Shortcut” or press “s”.

Now paste in your URL, press enter, type the name you want the shortcut to have and press enter and you are done.

If you use Chrome you can go to the menu, More Tools and select “Create Shortcut”.

Sieghard

What's New:

The following is a list of improvements made between Public Beta 2 and

What's New:

The following is a list of improvements made between Public Beta 2 and
Public Beta 3. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are
included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.

Updated BraillePen Display Driver

Added an updated driver from Harpo in Poland to support their New BraillePen

14 Braille device in addition to the previously supported BraillePen 12T.
Now, all models are supported by this driver.

Other Changes
list of 5 items
• The new "Virtual Cursor On/Off based on Browser Tabs" option in Settings
Center is now turned on by default.
• JAWS now announces the currently selected menu in Google Docs when you
activate a menu or use LEFT and RIGHT ARROW to move between menus.
• JAWS now indicates list items markers in Google Docs. For example, if your

document contains a numbered list, you should hear "1, 2, 3," and so on as
you navigate the list.
• Resolved a customer reported issue where JAWS stopped responding when
moving over a link in a Word document and a Braille display was connected.
• In Adobe Reader, when moving between pages in a document , addressed a
customer reported issue where JAWS was skipping the first line of the new
page.

moderated Accessibility of AWS Console

Ekstrand, Pamela A. -ND
 

Hi,

Does anyone have experience with managing databases via Amazon Web Services? My company is moving some of their databases into the cloud to be managed using AWS, and I am wondering about the accessibility of this environment with JAWS. I know there is a console that is used, but I also understande that there is a command line interface, which may be more useable.

If anyone has any experience with this, I would appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks,
Pam

There used to be a Firefox plugin called “Deskcut” that worked really
nicely.  However, it seems it is no longer available.  If someone knows
where to get it, please reply!  With Deskcut, a context menu choice was
added to the applications key (shift+F10) “save link” that put a
shortcut onto your desktop.  It worked like the IE “send shortcut to
desktop” command.  I have not found a similar Firefox substitute.  If
anyone knows of a good substitute, please reply!

Thank you very much Brian. I would have expected a somewhat friendlier
way for us blind people, as I have found with chrome, but not with
Firefox so far.

The "Method One" documented here,
https://www.intowindows.com/how-to-create-website-shortcut-on-desktop-in-windows-10/,

will work to create a desktop shortcut that will open under your default
web browser in Windows 10.

If Firefox is not your default web browser, and you want to use it as an
exception case, things get slightly more complicated.  For the moment I
will presume it is your default.

Hi all,
I resend this request, because I discovered the subject line had not been changed as I used a reply option earlier in the morning. With my apologies I pose the question again. Could someone please advise step by step as to how I can create desktop shortcuts of pages using latest Firefox, latest version of win10 and latest jaws? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
With sincere apologies again,
Takis

once when I had a problem with a dictionary file, a tech said that it
could have become corrupted even if the limit of 2000 hasn't been reached.

The memory is 2000 entries, but I only have 1100. Besides, that doesn't
explain why JAWS has no problem adding entries to a dictionary
containing the same entries, but using a different filename.
