There is no one who's an IT professional who recommends that any browser's "remember passwords" feature be used.  They do encrypt, but they are nowhere near as secure as a true password manager.  Browsers have constant contact with and exposure to cyberspace, and password managers (or many of them, anyway) do not.  Virtually all modern password managers also include the ability to go straight to the website and auto-type the password you've stored (though this is getting less robust, which to me is a good thing, actually).

Why is it insecure?  It’s encrypted from Chrome’s end, I don’t see it being any less secure than a password manager.

After you’ve entered the password and submitted it, there’s a dialogue to which you have to respond in order to save it. Try Shift+Tab from the top of the page, or Shift+F6 until you get ther.

I have autofill turned on and I pressed the button about passwords, but Google Chrome doesn’t retain my passwords.

That actually works.

I just did the following:

1. I renamed the  OutlookAutocompleteEnterSound and OutlookAutocompleteExitSound by adding (Backup) to the end

2. I picked two of the piano sounds and copied and pasted them, first Control + C and then Control + V, this creates copy with a “- copy” at the end of the file name.

3. I then renamed one of them OutlookAutocompleteEnterSound and the other OutlookAutocompleteExitSound

4. I went into the CC field of this message and typed the first few letters of my name and the new piano sound played, after pressing tab the other one played. I didn’t even restart Jaws for this to take effect.

Hi. The autocomplete sounds that you hear when entering an address in Outlook are generated from JAWS and not from Outlook. I don't believe there is a way to disable them from Quick Settings but they can be disabled or changed by opening the folder which contains the sound files. On my computer containing JAWS 2020 this folder is C:\ProgramData\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2020\Settings\enu\SOUNDS Look for files beginning with the word Outlook and you will see two .wav files, one for the autocomplete enter sound and another for the exit sound. It is likely that deleting these files would prevent these sounds from playing without any consequences but I haven't tried this to determine whether that is the case. Alternatively, you could substitute your own .wav files for these sounds as long as you are careful to rename the files with the exact names of the original .wav files. Personally, I find these two sounds particularly jarring, especially when I'm wearing headphones and I wish that the default sounds were a bit gentler on the ears.

Hi.

The name of the folder which contains the sounds is

C:\ProgramData\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2020\Settings\enu\SOUNDS

Assuming that the folder structure is the same with older versions, which may not always be the case, substitute 2020 with the version of JAWS you are running and see if that works.

If that doesn't work, open the search edit field of your start menu and type the word

utilities

and look for a Utilities app listed under JAWS. Open this and you will be in a folder which, on my computer, is

C:\ProgramData\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2020\Utilities

This folder contains links to other folders containing various types of data, such as Personal Settings, Shared Settings, etc. Poke around in these folders and look for a Sounds folder. Some folders labeled Sounds may be empty but at least one Sounds folder will contain a huge assortment of sounds which is used by JAWS.

Aside from the Sounds folder do be cautious if you start modifying these folders, particularly the folders containing scripts. This is equivalent to the system folders used by Windows. However, modifying sounds should be safe. As Sieghard has done it is wise to make backup copies of any default sounds you wish to modify in the event that you want or need to go back to them.

HI group,

Robin's question about identifying colored cells in Excel got me thinking about my Google Calendar. With the calendar you have the option to color code your tasks, events and reminders as well as each different calendar you have. Would the same examples given by David Goldfield in regards to sounds being played when a specific color is encountered, or announcing said color be applicable to the calendar?

Thanks,

Subject: start page and google chrome

 

Hi folks,

I’ve looked under settings while in google chrome, let me see which version of chrome I’m using.

Ok, it says 80.o.9.3 or something like that.

When I launch chrome it says new tab, and I cannot seem to locate to have it go straight to my home page. Once more I went under settings, went all the way and checked the box where it states open a specific page or set of pages.

I’m still presented with the new tab thing when launching chrome and need to do alt home to get to the home page.

 

Thank you,

moderated Re: How to stop sounds from playing in outlook when typing in the to field

 

That actually works.

I just did the following:

1. I renamed the  OutlookAutocompleteEnterSound and OutlookAutocompleteExitSound by adding (Backup) to the end

2. I picked two of the piano sounds and copied and pasted them, first Control + C and then Control + V, this creates copy with a “- copy” at the end of the file name.

3. I then renamed one of them OutlookAutocompleteEnterSound and the other OutlookAutocompleteExitSound

4. I went into the CC field of this message and typed the first few letters of my name and the new piano sound played, after pressing tab the other one played. I didn’t even restart Jaws for this to take effect.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Hi. The autocomplete sounds that you hear when entering an address in Outlook are generated from JAWS and not from Outlook. I don't believe there is a way to disable them from Quick Settings but they can be disabled or changed by opening the folder which contains the sound files. On my computer containing JAWS 2020 this folder is C:\ProgramData\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2020\Settings\enu\SOUNDS Look for files beginning with the word Outlook and you will see two .wav files, one for the autocomplete enter sound and another for the exit sound. It is likely that deleting these files would prevent these sounds from playing without any consequences but I haven't tried this to determine whether that is the case. Alternatively, you could substitute your own .wav files for these sounds as long as you are careful to rename the files with the exact names of the original .wav files. Personally, I find these two sounds particularly jarring, especially when I'm wearing headphones and I wish that the default sounds were a bit gentler on the ears.

When I’m typing an e-mail, in the to field, jaws will play a sound that indicates recent people you’ve contacted. Is there a way to turn this off, and where do I find it?

 

Thanks.

Great ideas.  Will have to explore and think through them to maybe implement.   I know how to and use color a lot when making corrections and edits for others to see.

I did not know that Jaws could be set to play a sound file when moving into a cell of a specific color.

If so, one could make up your own WAV files saying things like blue cell or red cell.

Robin,

Please bear in mind that I have no personal experience in dealing with color-coded spreadsheets but I believe I can get you started on finding some possible solutions.

First, Excel's Find command, available via the ctrl-F hotkey, contains an Options button within this dialog. When you activate this button you will be in another  dialog. From this dialog, navigate with the tab key and look for the Format button. Once you activate the Format button you will be in a multi-page dialog box. One of these tabs is a Font tab. Within the font page is a color picker, where you can specify a specific color that you're looking for. Once you perform a color search it is likely that activating the Find Next command, which is probably f3, will search for the next cell containing the color you previously searched for. Along with that you could also use the Speech and Sounds Manager, found within Settings Center, to set JAWS to behave in a certain way when you move to a cell containing a specific color. As an example, it should be possible to tell JAWS to play a certain sound when you move into a cell containing red text or you could have JAWS identify that color by speaking its name when it gains focus. You can even tell JAWS to read text in a specific color in a different voice. For red text you could set JAWS to read it with a lower pitch voice, as an example. The instructions in how to do this would be in the JAWS help system and you have many options from which to choose. I wish that JAWS would have keystrokes where you could bring up a list of cells with specific color attributes, such as all cells with red text. I don't believe that this capability exists with the current set of Excel scripts. I think this is something which FS should add and it might be worth writing to suggestions@... to ask them to add this. It could likely be done with scripting.

I hope this helps.

Hi. I've never tried using JAWS to behave in a specific way when dealing with colors in Excel but the feature works in other programs and so I don't see any reason why it would not work in Excel when it detects a specific color when you move to a cell containing text in that color. I don't have enough time to actually try it but I may experiment with it this coming weekend.

Hi Robin,

Right off the bat, Aira is your friend! If that isn't an option and you still are able to use your vision, hold control down and roll the wheel on your mouse, it will enlarge the screen and hopefully you'll be able to see the colored cell. Barring that, pressing numpad 5 twice rapidly should tell you the color of the cell as well.

Don't give up hope, there's a solution out there!

I personally have to run in high contrast since the white of the screens trigger migraines, but I'm a website designer and use color all the time. I use Be My Eyes, Aira, or in a pinch a sighted helper to make sure all the colors I've used mesh. I also have a cheat sheet with many of the most popular, I think there's around two hundred  hex codes with descriptive names attached for ease of access. I know this doesn't quite fit your situation, just sharing ways that color can be accessed still. ~smile

HTH,

Sarah

Using JAWS 2019 with Office 365 and Windows 10.
I seem to be working with more people, including my new manager, who really like color coding in Excel. I totally get it, as I can clearly understand how this visually makes looking at a large spreadsheet file easier, especially on calendar or schedule files. The first project I had for my new manager was to take a color coded calendar she had from last summer and update it for this year, color coding each event based on whether I was able to secure the necessary room reservation. My approach in this case was to hunt for color coded cells, and copy the color into a place off to the side, then clear all the colors and then paste the colors back in to new cells as I made the room reservations. This is just an example.

Hear my question with the lens of someone who is losing more usable vision and adjusting to new leadership in my role. I'm feeling a bit insecure about my abilities and am wondering if there are any tips from others who share spreadsheet files with sighted colleagues on managing colors and/or fancier layouts. I'm intimidated by these large files my new manager is sending. I've typically been the one creating the spreadsheet, so I could lay it out in my own way, but I'm taking on new job duties and inheriting files with lots of data that is just just a simple grid.

I guess I just need to hear of there are any tips or empathy out there.
