That’s why I always said JAWS is useful but a joke. Freedomscientific needs more competent leadership to address the Job Access part of the software. The updates have been gimmicks. Recently and still up to now, we have been having issues with track changes. This is a big joke in 2019.

But this is Microsoft Office we are talking about!  An Office product which is widely used across employment. How much more core could this be?

David,

I get your frustration, but I also think JAWS developers need to focus on the core products used by a majority of users. I could argue that Microsoft Project and Visio are mainline products that JAWS should support, but I also understand that it would take a lot of development hours to serve a small group of potential users of such visually based software. Far better that JAWS development focus on stability and features of mainline software.   Let those who have the know how and time develop scripts for less commonly used software.  You can’t get everything for free and companies have to choses were to spend development hours to meet the most needs.  Now, maybe Microsoft Narrator development will serve One Note.

As I understand it Jaws “out of the box” has never been able to work properly with One Note. For this reason someone in employment needs to buy 3rd party scripts to make them productive with One Note. This is especially the case  if they are using Jaws without sight.

I agree that it is not defensible for VFO to require their Users to purchase third  party scripts to make such a main stream Microsoft product work effectively for employees. It is a bit like requiring people by scripts to enable access to other parts of the same Office suite like  Word Excel or PowerPoint.

Scripts are a powerful extender to access with Jaws but should not be required for widely used mainstream employment products like Microsoft Office and the increasing used One Note. They should  come with Jaws. Scripts should be reserved / needed for vertical specialist employment software.

Having said that if you are employment now then I think you probably have little choice but to purchase scripts and the associated training to boost your productivity and protect yourself.

One example of the scripts at least are on.

Hi,

When using onenote, jaws won't read the sidebar.

I'm not even sure how to get to the sidebar.

 

Has Freedom scientific given a training on this topic?

If not, they definately should.

Hi, I am struggling to find reputable information that suggests using OneNote 2016 effectively on the job with jaws. What would you recommend? The Microsoft Disability answer desk is telling me to use one note for windows 10. However, there are security challenges in my company, because of how cloud centric that is. The only alternative I have found is to export OneNote 2016 notebooks to word or PDF. What are your thoughts? I am trying to work with my reasonable accommodation focal. Thank you.

Subject: Question about OneNote 2016 on the job as a reasonable accommodation

 

Hi, I am struggling to find reputable information that suggests using OneNote 2016 effectively on the job with jaws. What would you recommend? The Microsoft Disability answer desk is telling me to use one note for windows 10. However, there are security challenges in my company, because of how cloud centric that is. The only alternative I have found is to export OneNote 2016 notebooks to word or PDF. What are your thoughts? I am trying to work with my reasonable accommodation focal. Thank you.

David,

I get your frustration, but I also think JAWS developers need to focus on the core products used by a majority of users. I could argue that Microsoft Project and Visio are mainline products that JAWS should support, but I also understand that it would take a lot of development hours to serve a small group of potential users of such visually based software. Far better that JAWS development focus on stability and features of mainline software.   Let those who have the know how and time develop scripts for less commonly used software.  You can’t get everything for free and companies have to choses were to spend development hours to meet the most needs.  Now, maybe Microsoft Narrator development will serve One Note.

As I understand it Jaws “out of the box” has never been able to work properly with One Note. For this reason someone in employment needs to buy 3rd party scripts to make them productive with One Note. This is especially the case  if they are using Jaws without sight.

I agree that it is not defensible for VFO to require their Users to purchase third  party scripts to make such a main stream Microsoft product work effectively for employees. It is a bit like requiring people by scripts to enable access to other parts of the same Office suite like  Word Excel or PowerPoint.

Scripts are a powerful extender to access with Jaws but should not be required for widely used mainstream employment products like Microsoft Office and the increasing used One Note. They should  come with Jaws. Scripts should be reserved / needed for vertical specialist employment software.

Having said that if you are employment now then I think you probably have little choice but to purchase scripts and the associated training to boost your productivity and protect yourself.

One example of the scripts at least are on.

David,

I get your frustration, but I also think JAWS developers need to focus
on the core products used by a majority of users. I could argue that
Microsoft Project and Visio are mainline products that JAWS should
support, but I also understand that it would take a lot of development
hours to serve a small group of potential users of such visually based
software. Far better that JAWS development focus on stability and
features of mainline software.   Let those who have the know how and
time develop scripts for less commonly used software.  You can’t get
everything for free and companies have to choses were to spend
development hours to meet the most needs.  Now, maybe Microsoft Narrator
development will serve One Note.

As I understand it Jaws “out of the box” has never been able to work
properly with One Note. For this reason someone in employment needs to
buy 3^rd party scripts to make them productive with One Note. This is
especially the case  if they are using Jaws without sight.

I agree that it is not defensible for VFO to require their Users to
purchase third  party scripts to make such a main stream Microsoft
product work effectively for employees. It is a bit like requiring
people by scripts to enable access to other parts of the same Office
suite like  Word Excel or PowerPoint.

Scripts are a powerful extender to access with Jaws but should not be
required for widely used mainstream employment products like Microsoft
Office and the increasing used One Note. They should  come with Jaws.
Scripts should be reserved / needed for vertical specialist employment
software.

Having said that if you are employment now then I think you probably
have little choice but to purchase scripts and the associated training
to boost your productivity and protect yourself.

One example of the scripts at least are on.

Hi,

Hi, I am struggling to find reputable information that

jaws. What would you recommend? The Microsoft Disability

However, there are security challenges in my company,
because of how cloud centric that is. The only alternative I
have found is to export OneNote 2016 notebooks to word or
PDF. What are your thoughts? I am trying to work with my

It costs $15. If you install the scripts, restart JAWS, then launch One Note, there will be a series of prompts for payment.

 

I am not sure if it is worthwhile scince I do not use One Note. I just wanted to help you out.

Windows, mac, Android, IOS, and Alexa.

 

Does anyone know of any app that meets these criteria?

 

Right now, I’m using pocket casts, but its not accessible with jaws.

It doesn’t work very well on the mac either.

I could argue that Microsoft Project and Visio are mainline products that JAWS should support, but I also understand that it would take a lot of development hours to serve a small group of potential users of such visually based software. Far better that JAWS development focus on stability and features of mainline software.   Let those who have the know how and time develop scripts for less commonly used software.  You can’t get everything for free and companies have to choses were to spend development hours to meet the most needs.  Now, maybe Microsoft Narrator development will serve One Note.

As I understand it Jaws “out of the box” has never been able to work properly with One Note. For this reason someone in employment needs to buy 3rd party scripts to make them productive with One Note. This is especially the case  if they are using Jaws without sight.

I agree that it is not defensible for VFO to require their Users to purchase third  party scripts to make such a main stream Microsoft product work effectively for employees. It is a bit like requiring people by scripts to enable access to other parts of the same Office suite like  Word Excel or PowerPoint.

Scripts are a powerful extender to access with Jaws but should not be required for widely used mainstream employment products like Microsoft Office and the increasing used One Note. They should  come with Jaws. Scripts should be reserved / needed for vertical specialist employment software.

Having said that if you are employment now then I think you probably have little choice but to purchase scripts and the associated training to boost your productivity and protect yourself.

One example of the scripts at least are on.

Hi,

When using onenote, jaws won't read the sidebar. 

I'm not even sure how to get to the sidebar. 

 

Has Freedom scientific given a training on this topic? 

If not, they definately should. 

 

Thanks,

Hi, I am struggling to find reputable information that suggests using OneNote 2016 effectively on the job with jaws. What would you recommend? The Microsoft Disability answer desk is telling me to use one note for windows 10. However, there are security challenges in my company, because of how cloud centric that is. The only alternative I have found is to export OneNote 2016 notebooks to word or PDF. What are your thoughts? I am trying to work with my reasonable accommodation focal. Thank you.

                Hi,

I found some scripts online, called OneNote blind, but I wasn’t able to install them on my machine, because a dialog told me I couldn’t.

What happened to cause this?

There were no details, just a close button.

Meesha,

This may be a question for Microsoft Accessibility.  I found the area where you can set up another clock with a different time zone. The window says the user can view this secondary clock by hovering over the main clock.   I’m not savvy enough with JAWS to know if there is a way to maybe route your JAWS cursor to the clock and read the pop-up message.

You probably cannot do it with the JAWS F12 keystroke to check time, but if both clocks appear on your System tray in the bottom right of your screen, then you can try using Windows key B to get to the system tray, then arrowing left or right to hear the clocks.  I usually find focus is at the far left of the icons in the system tray, so it is fastest to arrow left and focus will quickly circle around to the far right of the icons where the standard system clock is.

As a workaround have you tried separate World Clock  applications or Website?

For example

https://greenwichmeantime.com/timepiece/world-clock/

Once you have set  a website like this up to your desired time zone you can set it up as a shortcut on your desktop or even, with a bit of further fiddling and editing of the shortcut, put it on the windows 10 Taskbar. Let me know if you want instructions on this.

In terms of apps rather than websites I think you will need to search for World Clock  apps rather than clock apps as normal clock applications will just provide the standard feedback from the system time.

I have added two clocks however JAWS just provides feedback for one of it so not sure how to access time for the other one.

Thanks,

Meesha
