Subject: Using Edge with Jaws

Hi all,

I'm looking for some tips on using the Edge browser with Jaws.
Honestly, I don't even know how to verify that I am running the newer more accessible version of Edge or how to check that.

Also, are there certain settings that should be changed to give a better browsing experience?

Any resources or suggestions will be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Kim

moderated Need help for using Jaws 2020 Windows 10 uploading files to my YouTube channel

Sharon Ballantyne
 

Hi All,

I am a totally blind user, using JAWS 2020 latest version, Windows 10 on PC laptop. In this world turned upside down I am needing to take zoom recordings and upload them to my YouTube channel.

 

The upload button is accessed via an icon image of a movie camera for the sighted. My screenreader is skipping over this and I keep needing to get my sighted partner to hit thisbutton so I can upload my files.

 

Is there a keyboard shortcut command to get me there or some way I can bring this in to focus?

 

If there are any people comfortable creating YouTube videos with JAWS, I would love any tips. It is very tedious and I think there must be a more efficient way.

 

Also would love to know how to create a consistent inclusion of a little music lead at the beginning and end! Any and all tips welcome.

Thank-you.

Assuming you are using English, they go in

Can anyone tell me where should zip scripts go in Jaws 2020 on windows 10 64 bit system?

Also am running band in a box and cannot get jaws to recognise it. No jaws hot keys or anything when I press insert f1 am told to go to insert 7?

Kind regards hope you all are doing well during these funny times we live.

It's always a good idea to keep Office 365 up to date for security reasons as well as to receive the latest features - including improvements in accessibility. Microsoft seems to have been consistently devoting more resources to accessibility in recent years.

moderated VLC Revisited

David Griffith
 

I thought I  would just post to say how I had resolved my VLC difficulty.

Some may recall last week that out of the blue VLC suddenly refused to play any media for me.

Altering   settings in VLC, including adjusting volume made no difference.

I therefore uninstalled and reinstalled VLC – still no difference.

I then had to install WinAmp to provide a replacement for the  last week.

Tonight I suddenly remembered that I had not checked the Windows Sound Mixer.

I typed sndvol after pressing the Windows key.

Sure enough when I came to the VLC slider  in the Windows Mixer I found that VLC had been set to 0%.

I changed this to 100%  and VLC suddenly blared back to life.

 

Quite what had happened in Windows to set VLC in the Sound Mixer to 0% is a complete mystery to me. I am the only person using this PC and I have been nowhere near the Windows Sound Mixer since last year.

Some errant electrons have obviously strayed where they should not stray.

Anyway I have VLC back working again and thought I would post this in case someone else encountered this or a similar issue.

David Griffith.

·        Alt + U User taken to participants panel. Tab and Shift + Tab will cycle through them.

·        Alt + Y Raise and lower hand

·        Alt + H Move to Chat window. NVDA doesn't currently read alerts but will in next version.

Hello Justin,

 

I just went through my initial trip to the Zoom platform, and there are some good things to do before the call.

 

Follow the meeting link in the email invitation; if you don’t have that, ask the meeting coordinator to send one.

 

Tab until you get to the meeting link on the web page and press enter.  Since this is before the meeting, you will get an alert to that effect.  Tab to the audio control icon and press enter.  Tab through those buttons to test your headphones and microphone.  Using headphones is a good idea if you want to be able to use JAWS during the conference.  On keyboard commands, the mute button would be one to know; I don’t know off the top of my head.

 

You can then log out and log back in when the meeting is starting, or you can leave the web page up and you will be alerted when the meeting starts.

 

I found the experience quite good.  JAWS said some stuff, alerts on joining or leaving the meeting, whether my mike was muted or not.  The audio was very good, the other 3 participants sounding like they were sitting near each other.  Much nicer than a standard phone call.

 

Sincerely,

Tim Ford

I have made note of a number of keyboard commands to use within the Zoom platform.

I have located a pair of headphones to use during the conference.

Just prior to the event, I will click on the Join Link.

I know there is a hotkey to set up the audio link specific to the headphones.

I would appreciate any tips on how to maximize my participation as this is my maiden voyage specific to Zoom.

If you're going to be using Zoom regularly, it may be worth downloading Jonathan Mosen's e-book on the topic which he has made free during the COVID-19 outbreak.

You can get it from www.mosen.org.

Tab until you get to the meeting link on the web page and press enter.  Since this is before the meeting, you will get an alert to that effect.  Tab to the audio control icon and press enter.  Tab through those buttons to test your headphones and microphone.  Using headphones is a good idea if you want to be able to use JAWS during the conference.  On keyboard commands, the mute button would be one to know; I don’t know off the top of my head.

 

You can then log out and log back in when the meeting is starting, or you can leave the web page up and you will be alerted when the meeting starts.

 

I found the experience quite good.  JAWS said some stuff, alerts on joining or leaving the meeting, whether my mike was muted or not.  The audio was very good, the other 3 participants sounding like they were sitting near each other.  Much nicer than a standard phone call.

 

Sincerely,

Tim Ford

Hello List members,

 

Later today, I am participating in my first Zoom conference event. I have downloadedZoom whose scripts are part of Jaws 2020.

I have made note of a number of keyboard commands to use within the Zoom platform.

I have located a pair of headphones to use during the conference.

Just prior to the event, I will click on the Join Link.

I know there is a hotkey to set up the audio link specific to the headphones.

I would appreciate any tips on how to maximize my participation as this is my maiden voyage specific to Zoom.

 

Peace and best to all, Justin .

How much RAM do you have? I've got 8 gigs and it doesn't seem to be
enough, especially when I've got Jaws, Outlook and OneDrive open at the

The best way I know is in the window that says listen now, tab over to the don't allow button and check it. Then press okay.

Good morning everyone,

While we appreciate knowing when a new issue of FSCast is available receiving those alerts at 2:30 in the morning and having it mess up JAWS isn't something we wish to put up with. If someone could please tell me how to turn off this notification in JAWS it will be very much appreciated. Thanks much and stay safe.

Zel,
Thank you for this bit of information. I am running Windows as a Virtual Machine on my Mac and I have been focused on trying to fix VMware Fusion to solve my JAWS issues. My Mac has 16 GB of RAM, but only 8 GB are allocated to the VM. I may be forced to run Windows in a Bootcamp scenario if I want to utilize my Mac hardware.

moderated Re: Protecting a document

Richard Turner
 

Yes.

I just tried it with the steps from a Microsoft article and it works.

I will give you the steps as well as provide the link.

IN your document, press Alt+f, I, p, e

Alt+f together, then I for info, p for protect, and e for encrypt.

BTW, this also works in Excel.

 

Here are the steps copied for the web site with the link at the end.

Protect a document with a password

Passwords are case-sensitive and can be a maximum of 15 characters long.

If you lose or forget your password, Word won't be able to recover it for you. Be sure to keep the a copy of the password in a safe place or create a strong password that you’ll remember.

1.  Go to File > Info > Protect Document > Encrypt with Password.

2.  Type a password, then type it again to confirm it.

3.  Save the file to make sure the password takes effect.

There is no really good method to do this.  Most can be worked around if the document is still in DOCX format.

It's not perfect, but I find it far more effective to save as PDF and send that out.  There are some who have PDF editors and know how to use them, but far fewer than the number who have MS-Office and know the tricks to get around protection.

If you really insist on sticking with DOCX you can use ALT+L,PE (Layout Ribbon, Restrict Editing), then navigate to the checkbox under Editing Restrictions and check it.  After it's checked, a dropdown box of options becomes accessible, the default is No Changes (Read Only), which is what you want.  Then navigate to the button, "Yes, start enforcing protection," and activate it.  At this point a dialog box comes up allowing you to choose password protection as the way to be able to unset editing restrictions or User Authentication.  Most use Password Protection, which makes you do the usual entering of the password you want in two boxes.  Then hit the OK key and the document can no longer be edited, even by you, unless you go back and turn off editing restrictions.

That's why I said it depends on who you are protecting it from
Quite often, I mark some of my files as read only to protect them from me
accidentally modifying them.

just to point something out, changing the attribute of a document file
to read-only protects the file from being saved as a modified file. so
it doesn't prevent the document from being read. for that, it would have
to be password protected that you and the recipient would need to know.

Hi Ann,
It really depends what type of document it is, .doc, .pdf or .txt etc,
and who you are protecting it from.
Making it a read only file is the simplest, and can be accomplished by
opening the file properties and checking the read only
checkbox on the general tab.
As for the password protection methods, there are various ways of doing this
depending on the software used to create the file or by third-party
software.
I am not well-versed in Microsoft Word, so I can't give any details on how
to password protect a Word Doc, but I am sure someone else can.
Hopefully others on-list can give more options.

HTH,
Rick

What is the best method for making a document unchangeable? Make it
readonly? Password protect it? How do I do either/both methods?
