It is a fair point I guess about the deteriorated accessibility of the Windows iCloud app.
I agree that some cautionary comments need to be added.
Because I used it when accessibility was better I want to keep it myself.

I don't think it is completely unusable but it is certainly not as easy as it used to be.
I still use it as once it is set up you can pretty much forget about it and it is invaluable in transferring content to iOS devices via iCloud Drive. In particular using it to send content directly into the Voicedream Reader library is valuable.
How about something like this for clarifying comments.
The accessibility of the iCloud Windows app has regrettably deteriorated in recent versions.
The following may help.
You can tell with Jaws OCR that the first checkbox relates to sync with Outlook for Contacts, Calendars and Tasks. Check here with the space bar if you want iCloud to sync with your copy of Outlook.
On the iCloud Main screen there are also 2 accessible options buttons - if you press enter on these then it becomes clear what the options relate to in each previous check box.
The first set of options relate to synching photo.
Hit the space bar on the preceding checkbox if you want iCloud to manage synching of photos across devices.
The second set of options relate to synching of favourites from Internet Browsers. You will be able to specify which of your installed browsers have their favourites synched across devices in the options dialogue box.
Check the checkbox prior to this option if you want to sync Bookmarks.

Hi,
I only use iCloud Drive, so I don’t worry about the unlabeled buttons.
I don’t care about Photos, Favorites, or Contacts. So just install and once its finished, I believe there will be a close button.

Dear Sarah
Thanks for taking this initiative.
I have been quietly adding programs to the list based on people's suggestions and the list is now quite expanded, especially in the utilities category. I was going to post this expanded list to the list anyway in a few days but you have prompted me to post it earlier.

HI all,

We discussed a resources list last month, I've been working on a site for a client recently and have added this page to their site. It can be found at: https://rogercusson.com/resources/. I'm still updating the list, so as many URL's as I've been able to find as of now are loaded.
I've also removed the categories listing as I didn't find it necessary.
I will be reorganizing the list to have all apps "included with windows"
in the same section, most likely at the bottom of the list as they won't have URL's. I look forward to updating this list as more resources are approved by the group.

If I missed anything, or anyone wants to add to the other lists on the page, please do let me know, I'll gladly update!

Thanks,

Sarah

Hi,

 

For systems in my company, we use a means of authentication called the SecureToken, a physical device where you enter a six-digit code that is subject to change every thirty seconds. In the workplace, what is known to work best with JAWS, since I will not be able to see the code displayed on the SecureToken’s screen?

 

Thank you,

moderated Re: DVS on TV

 

Jaws Key + Z always toggled the virtual cursor on and off as far back as I can remember.

If the CBC uses this as a shortcut then have you tried it after using pass key through? This would be Jaws Key + 3 on the number row, then immediately afterwards without pressing anything else press Jaws Key + Z.

If this doesn’t work give me a better example of where you go and what you used to do and I can take a look.

moderated Re: disabling navigation hotkeys

Cohn, Jonathan
 

Is this the key you were looking for?

Quick Navigation Keys Suspend Or Resume. control +jaws+N 

Temporarily suspend or resume from suspending the use of Navigation Quick Keys. If suspended, the setting automatically resumes when a new application or document loads. They will not automatically resume when you switch tabs in your browser, as some web applications simultaneously use multiple tabs.

Not a very easy keystroke, but you should be able to re-assign it in keyboard manager if it helps. I generally use the jaws-Z keystroke  when working with JIRA. The other possibility, is what Facebook and twitter do to allow application keystrokes to be run. For these applications, they put code in the web page that tells JAWS to not bind j k, l and c. 
For this to work, you would need to work with JRA accessibility. Another radical idea would be to create a custom script for JIRA. If you have ideas, I would be willing to work with you on implmenting.

This is most possible a RSA token. Make sure you get the one with an USB connector, then you can use it in your PC or Laptop together with the software called RSA Control Center. This is an accessible application and you can read the token ddisplayed on the USB secure token. There is even a copy button that lets you copy the code to the clipboard.

In iTunes you can set the view preferences to either album artist or song. The default is album but you need to change this to songs for column view to be possible.

You need to tab to the library sidebar view table and from there use the drop down menu to change it from album to songs.

Now suddenly you will be able to use the menu view option to enable column  browser.

Life will be much easier then. Once column browser is enabled   you can determine which columns you want visible. Personally I do not use the Genre column.

Dear Sarah

Thanks for taking this initiative.

I have been quietly adding programs to the list based on people's

suggestions and the list is now quite expanded, especially in the utilities

category. I was going to post this expanded list to the list anyway  in a

few days but you have prompted me to post it earlier.

As a start I have included some but definitely not all download links in the

Many of the free and trial programs are available from the excellent

Screenreader Accessible Page at

Where this is the case I have included the nimite link for convenience.

Other download links are also included if known at the time of writing.

it will expand more.

HI all,

 

We discussed a resources list last month, I've been working on a site for a

client recently and have added this page to their site. It can be found at:

https://rogercusson.com/resources/. I'm still updating the list, so as many

URL's as I've been able to find as of now are loaded.

I've also removed the categories listing as I didn't find it necessary.

I will be reorganizing the list to have all apps "included with windows"

in the same section, most likely at the bottom of the list as they won't

have URL's. I look forward to updating this list as more resources are

approved by the group.

 

If I missed anything, or anyone wants to add to the other lists on the page,

please do let me know, I'll gladly update!

 

Thanks,

 

Sarah

Does anyone have experience with Oracle Fusion?

Here is my problem:

I am trying to access an analysis in a report.  As part of the procedure there is a read only edit field that needs to be populated with one or more suppliers to activate the OK button to pull up the analysis data for those suppliers.

If you enter on this read only edit field and arrow down it opens a list of suppliers each with a check box to toggle.  This is only a partial list though.  To access more choices, there is a more/search link.  When you enter on that link it opens a pop up with that same partial list without the check boxes to toggle.  There is also a more button to add more choices to the list.  The idea is to select and highlight the choices you wish then to click on an arrow icon on the border of the pop up and the original window.  I am not able to access this arrow icon with JAWS.

Does anyone have a work around to overcome this issue?

Any assistance or ideas are greatly appreciated.’

fenderwal@...
 

Hi, everyone.
 
Tom, thanks for sharing your find. I had desperately wanted to shut off table cell coordinates, because I think screen readers can be too informative at times. A Window-Eyes user for years and years, I was able to use the table header row hot key, Control-Shift-H, to choose whichever option most effectively gave me table information.
 
I changed the subject line in reply because I want to know, does anyone know a JAWS keystroke combination that allows a user to rotor between table header options the way Window-Eyes does?
 
Thank you for your help,
Lou N.

Hi George,

 

I need the row number to be spoken by Jaws when arrowing slowly up the table column. If arrowing up at a normal speed then Jaws skips the row announcement and just reads the cell contents which is the desired result.

 

Currently, using the Jaws 2020 version released in the past week, Jaws does not announce any row number regardless of the arrowing speed. The row announcement was  spoken under the final 2019 version as well as the 2020 version released in late October.  I made the settings in the just released version the same as the settings in the 2019 version but this had no effect. That is, after making sure the settings relating to “default application” and saved with shift control d.

 

After trying numerous settings, I have come to the conclusion that a bug has crept into the latest 2020 Jaws update.

 

I’ll contact F S and make a report early in the new year.

 

Cheers

Tom

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.

moderated disabling navigation hotkeys

William Windels
 

Hello,

I use jira in the cloud on my work and this application has some nice hotkeys.

Most of them conflicts with jaws and I can disable all singel letter navigations in jaws with insert+f2 and then “navigation hotkeys”.

 

However, there are also some hotkays with signs like :

, comma / slash | vertical line \ backslash.

(I wrote the signs as sign and as word)

 

It seems I can’t disable none of them.

e.g. I can’t find the / to go with jaws to next clickable item by pressing insert+3 (pass key trough) and then / but this is a longer way.

Can I also disable this?

Kind regards and thx in advance
