I agree, this step will solve most problems copying passages from webpages while using Chrome. However, I have encountered several websites where I can't copy anything while using chrome. The Washington Post comes to mind, as does the Guardian. I can select text, but nothing happens when I press control-c. In the applications menu, "copy" is greyed out. In these cases, I have to open the same page in another browser, usually IE11, and make the copy there.

A fast way to get to the "copy" option in the JAWS quick settings menu is to type "copy" in the edit field when settings opens.

Hi there. If you are in Chrome, you will want to change the following setting. Press Insert plus V to access the Chrome Quick Settings. In the search box, type copy. Use the arrow key to find the option that says copy find the options. If it is set to copy content from screen, hit your spacebar once. The option will change to copy from virtual cursor. Use the tab key to move to the OK button and press enter. See if this resolves your issue. Good luck!

I was able to complete the census questionnaire online using Google Chrome with JAWS 2019 and Windows 7.  In order to access the questionnaire site, you must log in using the 12 character alphanumeric ID code that is printed on the notification you received in the mail.  A few members of another list reported trouble completing the questionnaire online using IE.  If you experience trouble completing the questionnaire online, call 844-330-2020 and explain that you are blind and would like to complete the questionnaire over the phone to avoid a visit from a census taker. Just be prepared for long wait times or disconnects because they are probably seriously shorthanded right now due to the national health crisis.  Everything seems to be in a state of confusion because nobody knows what to expect.  It may be difficult to impossible for the census bureau to obtainan accurate census count under the current circumstances.   Let's all try to stay safe and healthy.

The fix for this problem is to bring up the context menu – go to Junk and select the never block option. This adds the address to your safe senders list and should allow the download of images and prevent the annoying message.

John,

         The following is not aimed at you, but at my frustration with this situation and the IDIOT who wrote that message text that's getting read.

Now Here This:  You do NOT need to use IE to complete the U.S. Census online.  I completed it in Brave and know of folks who've done so in Chrome, Firefox, Edge original, and new Chromium-based edge.

This is a case where some incompetent didn't even think twice about what they were writing.  Microsoft has been strongly recommending that users abandon IE for years now.  To wit:

Why You Should Dump Internet Explorer | Daniel Miessler        (Dec 2019)

The perils of using Internet Explorer as your default browser ...            (March 2019 – straight from the proverbial horse’s mouth)

Microsoft cybersecurity expert: Please, stop using Internet ...  (Feb 2019)

Microsoft security chief: IE is not a browser, so stop using ...     (Feb 2019)

Microsoft wants you to stop using Internet Explorer                    (Feb 2019)

12 reasons not to use Internet Explorer, ever | Computerworld  (June 2011 – Even more valid now)

And if you web search on “Why you should not use Internet Explorer” the list of returned results is long, and virtually unanimous in the expert (and non-expert) opinion that you should not.

Hello:

Has anyone completed the 2020 census on line at my2020census.gov?

At the top, it asks screen reader users to use the latest version of Internet Explorer and JAWS.  I wonder how secure IE is now.

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

One can always use Windows Task Manager as well.   I still have not honed my skills on keeping focus with a screen reader in utilities like Resource Monitor or Task Manager where the display is dynamic and constantly changing as data updates on a second by second basis.  Stuff "jumps a lot" and I haven't perfected keeping up with the jumping nor working across the various columns.

Hi,

Hit windows key and type resource. It should pop right up and then just hit enter.

Hey all,

 

So I installed the latest version of JAWS on this laptop 2 days ago. It’s been running overnight now because I’m using it for work, and I’m noticing something odd. Usually JAWS occupies around 200 MB or so of RAM, tops. At the minute, it’s up around 4 GB of RAM. I mean, I have 16 so that’s not a huge issue, but that seems slightly odd. Anyone else having this problem? This is on Windows 10’s latest build.

Can I call them outside the US? I am willing to do it even now.

BTW, a funny thing has happened. Your message said something along the lines “We can only report it to support”, right after my TTS finished reading it I heard a message from Outlook: “Not available outside the open message”

I agree. Only thing we can do is keep reporting it to support.

I have the same issue with Firefox.
Think this is a known design flaw with jaws, which they have not been able to fix.
Would suggest calling support to see if they can provide any help.

Hi list,

Sometimes when in Chrome, I cannot copy the selection to the clipboard. It happens only with JAWS, and only with Chrome. What shall. I do?
