Hi Edward,

You are correct, I hadn't checked this in some time. But I am also 99.9% certain that this was not always the case and it is quite possible that Microsoft's competitive Office 365 option may have caused Dropbox to increase their plan from 1 to 2 Tb and of course storage continues to decrease in cost as well. Anyways, thanks for pointing this out, if somebody did need more than 1 Tb then Dropbox Plus or Dropbox Professional which apparently offers 3 Tb would be a good option.

Hi Sieghard,

You get 2TB on Dropbox's first tier payment plan not 1 as with OneDrive and Office 365.

Cheers,

Ed

You do and it is of course not free. I believe it is something like $100 a year.
You can get Office 365 for less than that for personal use and in addition to giving you a license for the full Office suite the subscription also includes 1 Tb of OneDrive storage which is what you get with Dropbox if you pay.
OneDrive works much like Dropbox and since I have the Office 365 subscription I certainly don't see any need to pay Dropbox as well. I still have my free account with I think 11 or 12Gb of storage, but only use it from time to time.

Thanks for your reply and instructions George.

 

I have tried all of the steps on numerous occasions but still cannot get Jaws to read the row position in a table while using the latest version released only a few days ago.

 

However, if I change to the final copy of Jaws 19 then the row number is spoken as normal.  It appears to me that something has been broken in the latest 2020 version.

 

Cheers

In a web page

Go to system settings with jaws key plus 6 on the number row

Tabe once and you hear users

Arrow once and you hear Web / HTML / PDFs

Arrow right once and you hear the same as above with open on the end

Arrow down to you hear tables and right arrow

Arrow down to you hear \\Tables\Web / HTML / PDFs \Table Presentation Information and then then press space bar and it changes to for all tables

Now quit the system settings and it will ask you if you wish to save the changes and choose yes and that should do it

Hi,

 

Prior to installing the latest Jaws 64 bit update a few days ago, Jaws would read the row position in a web based table as  I arrowed    up the column but since the update, Jaws no longer gives this information.

 

Can someone inform me which settings need to be changed so once more Jaws can give this info?

 

Thanks

Hello fellow listerrs,

 

I am going to college in January of next year and I am wondering if anyone has any experience with algebra using JAWS. Any tricks and tips will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thx,

Hi,

You can as someone mentioned upgrade to the drop box paid account, which if you use a lot of storage is really worthwhile as I think they give 2TB of storage space. If you just want to increase your drop box limit a little, another way to do this is using your drop box referral link. For everyone that uses your referral link to sign up you get an additional 500mb of extra storage (up to I think a maximum of 16gb of extra storage). It's also possible to purchase extra storage through services which get referrals for you, so you can get that extra 16gb of storage space for a one off payment of about $15 or so, although that’s not directly with drop box. Personally I've tried drop box, one drive and google drive, and although all work ok with jaws, I've always found drop box the easiest to use , especially since I have various folders I share with multiple other users and for project collaboration, plus I find the IOS app really nice and easy to access too. Too.

Three Reasons to Use Google’s Webmail Option with JAWS
by
Elizabeth Whitaker

 

Gmail is a widely-used email service that is used at home,
work, and school. While it can be accessed through a desktop email application
such as Microsoft Outlook, its webmail option provides more versatility.

 

Google’s webmail option provides Gmail users a flexible
alternative for accessing email from computers and mobile devices. A web
browser and Internet connection are all you need to begin sending and receiving
messages.

 

When you access Gmail through this form of internet-based
email, messages are stored on a web server, rather than on your computer or
device. This frees up disk space and memory for other important files. Here are
three reasons to consider choosing Google’s webmail option when accessing Gmail
with JAWS.

 

Access Your Email from Anywhere

 

When using Google’s webmail option, you can access messages
from anywhere on any computer or mobile device. This is especially convenient
if you travel frequently or need to access email between appointments. Because
your email is all on the cloud, you can also search for and respond to messages
quickly and efficiently without accessing a dedicated computer or software.

 

No Additional Software Is Required

 

Webmail doesn’t require the installation of dedicated
software. Simply open your web browser, go to Gmail, and your messages will be
displayed.

 

Access Your Email Using Familiar JAWS and Web Page Navigation Commands

 

Since Google’s webmail is displayed in your web browser, you
can use JAWS Quick Nav keys and other navigation keystrokes when working with
messages. These familiar commands make learning easier.

Three Reasons to Use Google’s Webmail Option with JAWS
by
Elizabeth Whitaker

 

Gmail is a widely-used email service that is used at home,
work, and school. While it can be accessed through a desktop email application
such as Microsoft Outlook, its webmail option provides more versatility.

 

Google’s webmail option provides Gmail users a flexible
alternative for accessing email from computers and mobile devices. A web
browser and Internet connection are all you need to begin sending and receiving
messages.

 

When you access Gmail through this form of internet-based
email, messages are stored on a web server, rather than on your computer or
device. This frees up disk space and memory for other important files. Here are
three reasons to consider choosing Google’s webmail option when accessing Gmail
with JAWS.

 

Access Your Email from Anywhere

 

When using Google’s webmail option, you can access messages
from anywhere on any computer or mobile device. This is especially convenient
if you travel frequently or need to access email between appointments. Because
your email is all on the cloud, you can also search for and respond to messages
quickly and efficiently without accessing a dedicated computer or software.

 

No Additional Software Is Required

 

Webmail doesn’t require the installation of dedicated
software. Simply open your web browser, go to Gmail, and your messages will be
displayed.

 

Access Your Email Using Familiar JAWS and Web Page Navigation Commands

 

Since Google’s webmail is displayed in your web browser, you
can use JAWS Quick Nav keys and other navigation keystrokes when working with
messages. These familiar commands make learning easier.

instructional tutorial,

your inbox, and much more.

Hi,
Once you press the windows key plus a your focus will be on the manage notifications button. If you press tab once, that would take you to the list of notifications should you have any where you can arrow up and down to navigate the list.

I think Windows update made a change
When I press Windows key plus A for the action center, I see manage notifications button, tablet mode not checked and collapsed quick action. However,
I can't get to the actions with enter or space bar or tab or arrows. What has changed and what do I need to activate the action center? If I rout JAWS
cursor to PC cursor, then I see location, network, blue tooth, etc. I have discovered that if I press tab plus right arrow I can then see my options on the action center. Is this normal? As usual, I apologize for not being clearer.

moderated Drop Box

Hi Net Bat,

I’m glad you got your Drop box fixed.

 

Pastor Gil

moderated dropbox 86 is working now.

netbat66
 

finally, with some posters and some fiddling i got dropbox 86 to work the way it use to.
windows 7 64bit.
one problem was the dropbox web site language changed from english to danish two days ago.
i got this back in the language settings in the desktoop preference, language.
but it was already set to use english i thought.
i found out the first choice was to use the system language, instead of the us english choice.
once i did this the dropbox web site went back to english. the second choice didn't work.
***
second if you change in preferences show folders to the file explorer the dropbox desktop list of files will become accessible the way it worked in the older versions.

thanks for the help i got.

Try switching to the newly named Jaws Scan with the minus key on the keypad.
Or, try it with Narrator instead.

moderated Re: saving documents in Word

CJ &AA MAY
 

I am using Jaws 18 with Windows 10 and Office 365.

Until relatively recently, when closing a document in MS Word with alt f4 or control f4, if I’d made changes, I would be asked if I wanted to save the changes before closing. But now it just closes and saves.

Today this was a real nuisance as I’d slightly customised my Christmas letter for an individual, but I hadn’t intended this to change the original letter which still needs to go out to some people. When I closed it though, it didn’t ask if I wanted to save the changes – it just did so!

How in future can I prevent this from happening?
