I did create a list of installed programs using the JAWS history and the Control Panel/programs.  I noticed on your list that you included Narrator and other Windows features.  Any reason for that?  Those did not come up on my list from Control Panel.

My apologies – I forgot that this was a Windows 10 tip , and also I believe Windows 8.

I don’t believe earlier versions of Windows have the same feature.

From memory in Windows 7  to get similar results you could go to control panel add remove programs and from there you could get a list of programs installed.

Using Jaws virtualise windows command jaws alt and W I think you can then you can copy to the clipboard.

However as I no longer have any Windows 7 machines I cannot test this out for you.

Can you tell me how to get this list in Windows 7?  I tried entering ‘'”shell:AppsFolder command” in the Windows Run Dialog box, but was given an error message saying that that file was not available or something.

I changed the subject line to reflect the new discussion.

As a starting point on this list it would be useful if people could list the programs they know work well on their system with Jaws.

I can offer one tip  to make it easier to establish which app people have on their system. Someone might have a better idea.

If you type or copy and paste the following command into the windows R run dialogue,

shell:AppsFolder command

and press enter

This will open a list view with  all the apps you have on your system.

You can simply arrow down to review then all.

Here you can press enter to run the app or perhaps more usefully use the context key to create a shortcut .

For our purposes here you simply have to cursor down the list of aps, after about 10 apps open the Jaws speech history with insert space , then H and you should see the list  of apps you have arrowed down in a form that you can copy and paste into a notepad file by pressing control a and then control c.

Alt tab back to your apps folder and continue cursoring down for about 10 app, open speech history history again and copy the resulting apps into your notepad file.

Continue until you have a file list of all the apps on your system.

As I say someone else might have a more elegant solution.

In any case edit the Notepad file to delete all the apps you know don’t work with Jaws.

Also you should probably delete any app that you don’t know if they work with Jaws or if you don’t want anybody else to know you have this app on your system.

I’ll try and do this as a starter list and others can then add or criticise the resulting list I have.

Yes David, even I was delighted to find that JAWS works on this as it didn’t work on other apps I tried.

As for having a resource which could provide us with the list of JAWS accessible program, I think it will be immensely useful. Perhaps we can put the programs/Apps names in an excel and share it. May be we can give it versions so if any one wishes to add any list of programs or apps names, they can add these to the existing list and save it to the next version and share it in this group.

Perhaps it would work at least for the interim untill such a resource is available through Vispero.

Thanks

Very glad it worked– I did see this option on the Microsoft Store  but I was not sure you would be able to use it.  I am especially pleased it is accessible with Jaws. Not all apps are though I think the situation is improving.

We need an Apple Vis type website with category lists of programs and Microsoft Store Apps Which are confirmed  to work with Jaws.

There is something  called NVDA Road tested Programs on Accessibility Net which is pretty much guaranteed to provide options for Jaws as well but somethings are accessible with Jaws and not NVDA and vice versa.

There used to be a Programs page on the old Jaws User Mailing list website but this seems defunct now and will not load here.  Tom Lorimore’s White Stick website will not be update given his recent sad death. I don’t know if anybody else knows of a similar resource?

VFO Should really host this  for the community I guess but if anybody has a web page that could be used I would be happy to provide some program suggestions and comments.

Good Idea David, I tried a world clock app on the Microsoft store and it is accessible with JAWS and it groups different time zones although I have to navigate few times to reach it. Good part is that I can add more  than five, not that I need that manyJ

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.

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.

I followed my own advice and reproduce the list of programs on my system that I have used at least once or twice with Jaws  can think is accessible. Some programs I have used more than others. I have used MP3Direct cut hundreds of times but Audacity less so if people want any clarification of the programs I use then the amount of feedback I will be able to give  will vary.

By the way in creating the application folder tip I gave earlier I forgot to remember that you get more joy arrowing rightwards rather than with the down arrow in reading what all your installed apps are.

 

Anyway here we go as a start list.

Here you can press enter to run the app or perhaps more usefully use the context key to create a shortcut .

For our purposes here you simply have to cursor down the list of aps, after about 10 apps open the Jaws speech history with insert space , then H and you should see the list  of apps you have arrowed down in a form that you can copy and paste into a notepad file by pressing control a and then control c.

Alt tab back to your apps folder and continue cursoring down for about 10 app, open speech history history again and copy the resulting apps into your notepad file.

Continue until you have a file list of all the apps on your system.

As I say someone else might have a more elegant solution.

In any case edit the Notepad file to delete all the apps you know don’t work with Jaws.

Also you should probably delete any app that you don’t know if they work with Jaws or if you don’t want anybody else to know you have this app on your system.

I’ll try and do this as a starter list and others can then add or criticise the resulting list I have.

Yes David, even I was delighted to find that JAWS works on this as it didn’t work on other apps I tried.

As for having a resource which could provide us with the list of JAWS accessible program, I think it will be immensely useful. Perhaps we can put the programs/Apps names in an excel and share it. May be we can give it versions so if any one wishes to add any list of programs or apps names, they can add these to the existing list and save it to the next version and share it in this group.

Perhaps it would work at least for the interim untill such a resource is available through Vispero.

Thanks

Very glad it worked– I did see this option on the Microsoft Store  but I was not sure you would be able to use it.  I am especially pleased it is accessible with Jaws. Not all apps are though I think the situation is improving.

We need an Apple Vis type website with category lists of programs and Microsoft Store Apps Which are confirmed  to work with Jaws.

There is something  called NVDA Road tested Programs on Accessibility Net which is pretty much guaranteed to provide options for Jaws as well but somethings are accessible with Jaws and not NVDA and vice versa.

There used to be a Programs page on the old Jaws User Mailing list website but this seems defunct now and will not load here.  Tom Lorimore’s White Stick website will not be update given his recent sad death. I don’t know if anybody else knows of a similar resource?

VFO Should really host this  for the community I guess but if anybody has a web page that could be used I would be happy to provide some program suggestions and comments.

Good Idea David, I tried a world clock app on the Microsoft store and it is accessible with JAWS and it groups different time zones although I have to navigate few times to reach it. Good part is that I can add more  than five, not that I need that manyJ

 

Thanks for the suggestion.

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.

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.

Hi members,

Can I check time for two time zones simultaneously using JAWS?

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.

Hi Jessica,

Which browser are you using?

I find that with IE, sometimes a page seems to not load, and when I do number pad insert + 3 it will say 100%, so often if I do insert + F7 to list links, it will list the links on the page, and then I can escape out of that, and my cursor will be at the bottom of the page, so I do control + home and start over with the page fully available.

I don't know why this sometimes happens, but it does.

Once in a while too, when a page does not seem to open in IE, you can do control + F6 or do a shift tab and you will be in the usable page.

Exploring the World of Podcasts - VisionAware

 

Exploring the World of Podcasts

 

by

Steven Kelley, CRC, CVRT

 

You've heard the term "podcast" before, but do you know what it means? Of course! A little pod being cast about, right? Well, almost.

 

What is a Podcast?

 

A podcast is usually some type of audio presentation that is distributed or broadcast on the Internet. Strictly speaking, it is a serial audio presentation

that you subscribe to with something called a "podcatcher," which is a software application or "

app."

 

Audio presentations are made up of digital files that are sent over the Internet. Once you subscribe to a podcast using the podcatcher, new audio presentations

are then delivered automatically after publication whenever the podcatcher is connected to the Internet.

 

You might think of podcasts as radio programming on-demand. Podcasts may provide news, entertainment, newspaper reading services, training presentations,

lectures, and so much more! Often, the settings on the podcatcher software will allow users to download the audio program file automatically at the time

of publication, or at the time a user wants to listen to it.

 

Often the podcasts may be "streamed," meaning that the file is played over the Internet, as opposed to being first downloaded to the podcatcher and then

played later. You might think of "streaming" as being like an Internet Radio.

 

Downloading audio files from the Internet is not new, and certainly predates the term "podcast." In 2001, Apple released the first iPods, which were small

digital audio players on which users could download audio files from their computer to take with them on the go. The convenience and portability of the

Apple iPod fueled the creation and broadcasting of serial audio productions that could be downloaded and played on the iPod. By 2005 or so, these digital

presentations were being called "podcasts."

 

Audio-on-Demand

 

Podcasts, and the digital audio files from which they are created, are dramatically changing the way information is delivered. For example, if you missed

the Ted Radio Hour, your favorite NPR radio broadcast, you can download the episode's archived file as a podcast or subscribe to the show's podcast "feed.

The feed is just the website address used by a podcatcher or Web browser to find the latest digital audio files as they are broadcast.

 

In this example, the link used to subscribe to the Ted Radio Hour is "feed://www.npr.org/rss/podcast.php?id=510298." This link is meaningless to us, but

a Web browser or podcatcher will recognize this as a RSS feed (Real Simple Syndication). This is the protocol used to make the automatic distribution of

a podcast happen.

 

Podcasts for the Technology Challenged

the National Library Service Digital Talking Book Player

 

The NLS Digital Talking

Book Player and cartridge

 

The technology behind podcasts is very flexible, so it may prove to be a powerful tool for both computer users and technophobes alike.

 

For example, you can download podcasts to the

National Library Service

(NLS) digital cartridge and play them on a Talking Book player. These are free, easy-to-use players distributed at no cost by the NLS.

 

You can read more about the NLS Digital Talking Book Player at

Audio Players and Talking Books

at VisionAware.org.

 

You can also purchase blank cartridges (pictured at left) from a number of specialty sources, including

Perkins Products.

Be sure to order the USB cable along with the cartridge, because this is not a standard USB cable.

Blank digital cartridge

 

A family member or friend who is more comfortable with computers can download these podcasts easily and make them available to someone less comfortable

with computers or with the process of downloading files.

 

The NLS Talking Book player is just one example. You can also do the same with other accessible players, such as the Victor Reader Stream, the iPod Touch,

or Milestone 312. You can read more about these accessible options at

Audio Players and Talking Books

at VisionAware.org.

 

Podcatching Apps

 

If you are already a computer user or own a smartphone or tablet, here are some useful software podcatchers.

 

For the PC

WebbIE

is a suite of applications that is completely accessible and simple to use. It includes an accessible podcatcher in the suite. If you are new to podcasts

or screen readers this is a good place to start, and it's free.

For iOS (iPod, iPad, or iPhone)

list of 2 items

Downcast

is available as an app for both the Apple iOS devices and the Mac. It is $2.99 and $7.99 respectively and completely accessible with the VoiceOver screen

reader.

Overcast

has changed from a pay model to free, is simple to use, and is accessible using VoiceOver.

list end

 

For Android

list of 2 items

DoggCatcher

is $2.99 and accessible with TalkBack screen reader.

Podkicker

is free and fully accessible. It is easy to use and has a powerful search function for finding podcasts.

list end

 

Internet Access

 

Keep in mind that if you are an Internet user, you can always use a Web browser like Safari, Chrome, or Internet Explorer to go to the website of the podcast

you are interested in, and either download the file, or listen to it streaming live. For example, one of my favorite weekly podcasts, Accessible World

Tek Talk is in Podkicker on my Android phone and updates automatically with each new episode.

 

Alternatively, if I'm on my desktop computer, the Tek Talk Archives webpage has a list of all the podcasts to date as MP3 audio files. Clicking on one

of the archived files opens it and begins playing it. It's very simple.

 

Access Technology Podcasts

 

To get started, here are several podcasts related to accessible technology and vision loss with the feed address that you can put into a podcatcher.

 

Seminars at Hadley

 

The

Hadley Institute for the Blind and Visually Impaired

offers regular podcasts on a wide variety of interests related to vision loss. Podcasts include daily living skills, access technology, employment, and

much more. Subscribe to

Start Listening!

 

The wide variety and popularity of podcasts has certainly exploded since the term was first coined following the introduction of Apple's iPod 15 years

ago! Once you start exploring some of the rich diversity of podcasts, most often at no cost, you will realize that podcasts really are seed pods of entertainment,

educational lectures, training, and so much more, cast onto the Internet for your own enjoyment and education!

I followed my own advice and reproduce the list of programs on my system that I have used at least once or twice with Jaws  can think is accessible. Some programs I have used more than others. I have used MP3Direct cut hundreds of times but Audacity less so if people want any clarification of the programs I use then the amount of feedback I will be able to give  will vary.

By the way in creating the application folder tip I gave earlier I forgot to remember that you get more joy arrowing rightwards rather than with the down arrow in reading what all your installed apps are.

 

Anyway here we go as a start list.

 

N.B rather than reproduce all these People could perhaps add programs that they are using to this list and I can try and consolidate it all into a master list.

 

Programs I am personally using with Jaws.

I changed the subject line to reflect the new discussion.

As a starting point on this list it would be useful if people could list the programs they know work well on their system with Jaws.

I can offer one tip  to make it easier to establish which app people have on their system. Someone might have a better idea.

If you type or copy and paste the following command into the windows R run dialogue,

shell:AppsFolder command

and press enter

This will open a list view with  all the apps you have on your system.

You can simply arrow down to review then all.

Here you can press enter to run the app or perhaps more usefully use the context key to create a shortcut .

For our purposes here you simply have to cursor down the list of aps, after about 10 apps open the Jaws speech history with insert space , then H and you should see the list  of apps you have arrowed down in a form that you can copy and paste into a notepad file by pressing control a and then control c.

Alt tab back to your apps folder and continue cursoring down for about 10 app, open speech history history again and copy the resulting apps into your notepad file.

Continue until you have a file list of all the apps on your system.

As I say someone else might have a more elegant solution.

In any case edit the Notepad file to delete all the apps you know don’t work with Jaws.

Also you should probably delete any app that you don’t know if they work with Jaws or if you don’t want anybody else to know you have this app on your system.

I’ll try and do this as a starter list and others can then add or criticise the resulting list I have.

Yes David, even I was delighted to find that JAWS works on this as it didn’t work on other apps I tried.

As for having a resource which could provide us with the list of JAWS accessible program, I think it will be immensely useful. Perhaps we can put the programs/Apps names in an excel and share it. May be we can give it versions so if any one wishes to add any list of programs or apps names, they can add these to the existing list and save it to the next version and share it in this group.

Perhaps it would work at least for the interim untill such a resource is available through Vispero.

Very glad it worked– I did see this option on the Microsoft Store  but I was not sure you would be able to use it.  I am especially pleased it is accessible with Jaws. Not all apps are though I think the situation is improving.

We need an Apple Vis type website with category lists of programs and Microsoft Store Apps Which are confirmed  to work with Jaws.

There is something  called NVDA Road tested Programs on Accessibility Net which is pretty much guaranteed to provide options for Jaws as well but somethings are accessible with Jaws and not NVDA and vice versa.

There used to be a Programs page on the old Jaws User Mailing list website but this seems defunct now and will not load here.  Tom Lorimore’s White Stick website will not be update given his recent sad death. I don’t know if anybody else knows of a similar resource?

VFO Should really host this  for the community I guess but if anybody has a web page that could be used I would be happy to provide some program suggestions and comments.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Yes I did try to go to the clock after pressing Windows B and then navigating to the system clock however it only provides feedback for one clock and not the other one.

Thanks

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.

Hi members,

Can I check time for two time zones simultaneously using JAWS?

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

Very glad it worked– I did see this option on the Microsoft Store  but I was not sure you would be able to use it.  I am especially pleased it is accessible with Jaws. Not all apps are though I think the situation is improving.

We need an Apple Vis type website with category lists of programs and Microsoft Store Apps Which are confirmed  to work with Jaws.

There is something  called NVDA Road tested Programs on Accessibility Net which is pretty much guaranteed to provide options for Jaws as well but somethings are accessible with Jaws and not NVDA and vice versa.

There used to be a Programs page on the old Jaws User Mailing list website but this seems defunct now and will not load here.  Tom Lorimore’s White Stick website will not be update given his recent sad death. I don’t know if anybody else knows of a similar resource?

VFO Should really host this  for the community I guess but if anybody has a web page that could be used I would be happy to provide some program suggestions and comments.

Good Idea David, I tried a world clock app on the Microsoft store and it is accessible with JAWS and it groups different time zones although I have to navigate few times to reach it. Good part is that I can add more  than five, not that I need that manyJ

 

Thanks for the suggestion.

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.
