I have Outlook 2010, and there is an easy work-around to this issue.  Just highlight what you want to spell-check, then the F7 key works just fine and launches spell-check.  To make this easy, when you are at the bottom of your note, highlight what you wrote by using shift + home.  Otherwise, control + a selects everything.

 

I have reported this several times to JAWS, but they have never fixed it.

are you logged into your google account before you go to the page?
some sites use the google captcha and if you are logged in i think it just has a verify button and when you click on it it will by pass the captcha altogether.

Hello,



I’m having trouble with trying to communicate with a business via email from their web site. When it says “I’m not a robot checkbox not checked it will not allow me to check that to let them know I’m not a robot. I’ve tried pressing the space bar and I’ve tried pressing enter to no avail. Is there another way to get that checked to say “I’m not a robot checkbox checked?



Thank you for any help.

Some websites won’t let the checkbox be checked until you enter the text they want. My challenge: even if I use the audible and hear the letters and/or numbers, I can’t always get them typed into the place where they should go.

If you have a smart phone, the Kindle app works fine with either Talkback on Android, or VoiceOver on an iPhone.

Or, search for Accessible Kindle for PC, and install it.

You will need to login with your Amazon account, or create one.

Sighted assistance is helpful for that login screen, as it does not read right with JAWS.

And, seriously, when that occurs loud complaints should be made to the entities in control of those websites.

It is insane to have people forced into using what is well known to be an insecure browser to enter credit card data.  It would not shock me, though I haven't checked, that it could very well be a violation of PCI compliance to allow IE use with credit card information.

Internet Explorer is not secure, period, and it is up to entities handling financially or otherwise sensitive information to get off their duffs and update their sites to use secure and modern browsers.

Hi Martin,
 
As Dean posted, but it was below Alison's message.  Press, Insert + spacebar , then press the letter, Z, to run Jaws with its default settings, this is a toggle, so invoke the keystroke again to go back to your settings.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Don's know if there is an official way to do this, but this will work:
Unload Jaws first.

Go to your profile by pressing win+r and type:
shell:appdata

You will find here a freedomscientific folder.
Open this folder and go to the Jaws folder.
Here you will see foolders for the different jaws versions installed on
this computer. For example:
2019 or 2020.
Rename the folder of the jaws version you use.

Next time you start jaws a fresh profile is created.

Upgrading to JAWS 2020 might just solve your problem. Fixing a problem in an older version of JAWS doesn’t affect the newer version, so that is a possible fix.

When you find the executable file for the program you want to have a shortcut to on the desktop, right click, or press shift+f10, or the application key; then arrow to Send, press the right arrow and then down arrow to desktop and hit enter.  Make sure you don’t choose send with transfer, but the one that just says send.

Nothing is as nosy as the Google Chrome browser, on that we agree.

However, IE cannot be considered secure by modern standards, and no matter how often anyone says, "it's secure," there is no one, including Microsoft, that recommends its ongoing use except when it's the only option.  And at this point (and that's not Microsoft's fault) it should never be "the only option."  Organizations that have sites where it still is need to have objections raised.

Quick check reveals that IE 11 is, as of this writing, still PCI compliant.

But, as writer SteveB_85 noted on answers.microsoft.com topic, Internet Explorer 11 "will not be supported soon"?, ". . . use Internet Explorer to access apps that aren't compatible with Edge or other browsers but the recommendation from Microsoft is now only to use Internet Explorer for compatibility purposes."

And complain loudly when you have had to do so.

I understand your concerns, however IE is still secure and may not even be as nosey as Chrome.  Truth is new is not always better.  While I have switched to Chrome and Edge IE is still faithful in critical needs.

And, seriously, when that occurs loud complaints should be made to the entities in control of those websites.

It is insane to have people forced into using what is well known to be an insecure browser to enter credit card data.  It would not shock me, though I haven't checked, that it could very well be a violation of PCI compliance to allow IE use with credit card information.

Internet Explorer is not secure, period, and it is up to entities handling financially or otherwise sensitive information to get off their duffs and update their sites to use secure and modern browsers.

Same experience here. IE is the default when other browsers fail. Many state agencies still rely on IE for its broad access.

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:

Hi John,

I did it last night and yes you must use IE. I am still using IE11 for my primary browser. From what I have read it is still secure for now.

Give Auggie hu from me.

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,
