It used to be that Duxbury would prompt to install the scripts when you load it.

He may need to contact Duxbury support if that isn't happening.

I have the goldwave scripts and can send them as an email attachment when I get home later today.

Since the list won't accept them, I can send them to you directly.

I believe that, when you install Duxbury, it will detect that you are using
JFW and install its own scripts. I don't believe there are any "third party"
ones.

As for Goldwave --
The scripts are out there, but I don't think they are maintained anymore.
With the dissolution of the old jFW programmes archive (which I think was
maintained by the owner(s) of that old mailing list?), I do not know where
you can get them. I may have something here if you want to contact me
privately. The programme is quite usable without scripts -- they just give a
bit of extra voice feedback.

If you go to the quick settings while in chrome, insert V and type in progress, you can silence the progress announcements by hitting space on the setting.

No the same behaviour happens whether you are using Jaws, NVDA or Narrator and it has driven me and others insane after Chrome introduced this earlier in the year.

However thanks to the addon that George found and posted to the list today Chrome and Brave is now blissfully silent whilst it is downloading large files.

Isn’t it more a function of the screenreader which reads out the intermittent downloads status announcements?

I just tried a relatively large download, SQL Express which in it’s largest version is 1.1 Gb, but I have a fiber connection so even that only took 35 or 40 seconds and all I got at the end was that the download was complete.

I personally much prefer Chrome and the download manager it has and this might be a case where you could ask Google Accessibility for help.

Pamela, I am pretty sure I also see you on the Viphone list so if you have an iPhone and if you have the Be My Eyes app installed, you can actually call Google Accessibility and since it is Be My Eyes, this is a video call and you could even have a download ready to start and show them.

Hi,

 

 

Is there any way to get Chrome to stop announcing a download in progress

and its time remaining every minute or so? It's very annoying for a

longer download. I've gone in to Chrome settings,and blocked all

notifications, but this has no effect.

moderated Jaws2020.1912.11.400 December Update _+ What's New

Mike B.
 

Hi All,
 
Here y'all go:
 
 
32 & 64 bit:
 
 
What's new:
Enhancements in JAWS 2020.1912.11 (December 2019)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the initial JAWS 2020 release and the December 2019 update.
list of 16 items
• Added Functionality to Fusion, or when running ZoomText and JAWS together, that was previously only available in MAGic. When performing a Say All ( INSERT+DOWN
ARROW ), JAWS begins reading from the current location of the Virtual Cursor or mouse pointer, whichever was last moved. For instance, if you are moving
around a web page or PDF document using the mouse pointer, you can point the mouse at the location where you want to start reading and press INSERT+DOWN
ARROW  to start the Say All. This works in Chrome, Internet Explorer, the new Microsoft Edge browser, Acrobat Reader DC, as well as the JAWS Results Viewer
and the JAWS and ZoomText help systems. It currently does not work in Firefox as you must first click at the location where you want to begin reading before
starting the Say All.
• Resolved an issue where table columns in some PDF documents were not being read correctly even when properly tagged in Adobe.
• Addressed an issue with tables in PDF documents where JAWS and Fusion were not reading the table summary.
• The JAWS keystrokes for displaying lists of elements on a web page, such as buttons ( INSERT+CTRL+B ), edit fields ( INSERT+CTRL+E ), regions ( INSERT+CTRL+R
), and so on, can now be found using the JAWS Commands Search ( INSERT+SPACEBAR , followed by J ).
• JAWS and Fusion now announces the current page when using CTRL+TAB  to cycle through multiple open tabs in Chrome.
• Added a new Quick Settings ( INSERT+V ) option called "Announce Count of Links, Headings, etc. when page loads," which is on by default. Turning this
setting off causes JAWS and Fusion not to announce the number of these elements when a web page loads.
• When using Navigation Quick Keys in a document in Google Docs ( INSERT+SPACEBAR , followed by Q ), addressed an issue where pressing H  or SHIFT+H  for
the next or prior heading was not speaking the text of the heading you just moved to.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS caused Outlook 365 to unexpectedly close after selecting the Sort item from the application context menu ( SHIFT+F10
 or the APPLICATIONS  key).
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not speaking the names of certain list boxes in Word.
• In retail versions of Word 2013 and 2016, resolved an issue with Comments, Footnotes, and Endnotes detection not indicating the number of items on the
current line as expected even when this option was set to "On plus count" in Quick Settings.
• For those who develop JAWS scripts to help improve accessibility for an application, the Script Manager utility ( INSERT+0  on the number row) has been
updated to offer more modern functionality similar to other popular code editors like Notepad++. This includes syntax highlighting, auto indent as you
type, displaying line numbers, continuous zoom, and more. For additional information including new hot keys, press F1  while focused in the Script Manager
to open its help.
• Both the JAWS and Invisible Scan Cursors now indicate headings and their level as you review text. For example, headings are regularly used in the Weather
application.
• When attempting to access a drive encrypted using the Windows 10 BitLocker utility, resolved a customer reported issue where focus would not remain in
the Password edit field with JAWS and Fusion running, making it difficult to enter the password.
• A user reported problems using the JAWS Dictionary Manager to add new entries for controlling how the active synthesizer pronounces words, phrases, abbreviations,
or symbols. This has been resolved.
• Addressed reported issues with JAWS speech unexpectedly becoming muted after logging into Windows on some systems.
• In addition to English, FSReader is now installed for German, Spanish, French, French Canadian, and Dutch installations of JAWS and Fusion.
list end
 
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!
Arguing with a woman is like reading a software license agreement.  In the end you have to ignore everything, & click I agree.

I have just installed this in Brave and so far it is working a treat.
Once installed you have to tab to the add on extension button in the Brave bar and bring up the context menu and from that check the disable downloads tray option.
I then went and found a big download and it was completely silent.

I spent weeks searching for something like this and wasting my time changing various options in first chrome and then Brave so the fact that this works is very valuable.
Definitely an email to keep for future windows installs.

Is there any way to get Chrome to stop announcing a download in progress

and its time remaining every minute or so? It's very annoying for a

longer download. I've gone in to Chrome settings,and blocked all

notifications, but this has no effect.

 

 

Thanks,

 

~Ann

Hello,
Did you try doing a Google search on your subject line? I found several results about preventing duplicates in a region involving using validation rules.

Sadly, you will have to call Microsoft Accessibility I think and having them connect to your computer so you can show them that their instructions are wrong.

 

I just went through the Microsoft Disability answer desk web site specifically on adding alt text with a screen reader.

Their steps say to get focus on the image, press alt+j then p and tab to the format object item…only there is no format object item.

I had my sighted wife confirm, it isn’t there.  This is with Microsoft 365 Word 2016 and Jaws 2020, Narrator, and NVDA, none of which show that option.

 

Here is the page where I found their steps.  There is a topic specific to adding alt-text on this page:

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/use-a-screen-reader-to-insert-a-picture-or-image-in-word-e03b33b8-e96d-4f52-9a5f-12c5ab7d2580

 

I’m getting ready for work, so I don’t have time to call them myself.

If I have time this afternoon, I will.

Subject: Adding alt text in MSWord2016

 

Hello,

I am trying to add alt text to images in MSWord 2016 using JFW2018 and 2019, but I am not getting the format/alt options. Here are the steps I am following:

1. Select an image
2. Write click using tab+9 or shift+F10
3. This is where I am supposed to get format picture option in which the second tab would be for alt text, but using JFW I am not getting that option for format picture at all.

I have tried to insert alt text on two Windows-running PCs in MSWord2016, one with JFW2018 and the other JFW2019.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated

Thanks

With the demise of the jawsusers site, their scripts are gone as well. Can anybody point me to the latest scripts for Goldwave version 6?

 

Thanks.

You can display it via the Calendar tree view. If it's checked, it will
display alongside any other calendar (use F6 to cycle between open
calendars).

You can also use Shift+F10 from the tree view to access a context menu. If I
remember correctly, this gives you options such as opening the calendar in
another window. However, I haven't looked at this recently, and I may not be
remembering correctly.
