Hi,

I use the Walmart site each month to order many grocery and other items. I'm using the latest Jaws2020 on Windows10 and have had no problems.

one thing that helps me to locate my search results is to use either the L key to find lists of search results or the G key to skip through graphics. Almsot all results will have a corresponding image. It would be nice if the site was layed out to be a bit more screen reader friendly, say by using Heading styles, but it is still very doable with JFW once you get used to it.

I want to explore the possibility of ordering groceries from Walmart.com. I have the latest version of Jaws and a sighted friend says it doesn’t look doable with a screen reader to them. Is anyone using the regular part of Walmart.com or the grocery.walmart.com section with positive results? When I tried to navigate the sight, there did not seem to be  any rhyme or reason to things but I’m told visually it is laid out very clearly. Also, when I tried to search Google for any tips, I got nowhere.

I finally got a delivery from Shipt after spending almost a week trying to find an open delivery window.
one thing I like about shipt is that they give you the choice of either a voice phone call or a text.

I ordered from Wal-mart. The site was wonderfully accessible. I received an acknowledgment of my order, and each time I added to the list I received an email confirming my additions. An hour before the scheduled delivery, Wal-mart canceled the order. The email said for 'operational reasons'.

I have used Shipt twice since then. the site isn't as good as Wal-Mart, but they have delivered.

Hi Brian,

Sorry to be so vague. I once saw that you could use F11 to navigate through Word templates such as resumes, forms and such. I tried navigating through the fields in a resume template with F11 and nothing happened.

Is there something else that I need to do or what mode should I be in to accomplish this?

Thanks.

This is far to vague to be answered.  What is it, precisely, that you're trying to navigate?

Is it in the template itself in when it is in edit mode?  Is it the document created by the template and, if so, what form of editing restriction is in place (e.g., fill in forms only)?

Most sighted people don't, but there are a few who do.  I'm usually leary when someone says something ca't be done, unless I know they are trained in accessibility or are very familiar with JAWs.

You might already be doing this, but F6 moves you between panes, so say you’re in your table of values, like music and things. You can move to another pane, like who the artest and stuff is by pressing F6. If you press it repeatedly, you’re back in the table, and tab also works for this. Yet, with tab, you have to listen to JAWS say things like your volume, iTunes store, and a whole bunch of other checkboxes. CTRL will be your best friend if you wan to go to podcasts, movies, and/or books. Note that audiobooks is the only thing available in the books section, something like CTRL and 5 on the numer row. CTRL 4 gets you to youyr pocasts, 3 with CTRL gets you to TV shows, I think, and for movies, CTRL an 2.

Hi Sieghard,
regarding your local drive being unchecked. That's the default setting. If you check this, then all the folders on your local drive will be indexed, apart from those that are specifically unchecked at lower levels. This is probably not what you want, as this will mean all your system files being indexed, leading to a bigger index. By default, only the users folder is checked.

Control Panel, Indexing Options, Modify Button.  In the Indexed Locations dialog that comes up, in the top section entitled Change selected locations, is a list of locations with a checkbox for each.  If you arrow down through that list on a system that has Outlook installed, one of those should be Microsoft Outlook.  Check it, then navigate to and activate the OK button.  You'll be back at the Indexing Options dialog.

After that I would also recommend rebuilding the index immediately.  You do this by activating the Advanced button then in the Advanced Options dialog navigating to the Rebuild button and activating it.  You will then get a warning dialog that the rebuild can take a long time to complete (which is true) and that your search results will be incomplete until it does with an OK or Cancel option.  You'll OK it.  In my case it took seconds because I had not changed anything to be indexed, but when you add locations it will toss out the entire existing index and rebuild it from scratch.  You need not do this if you don't want to, as it will eventually occur "naturally" but I like to force it so that I know it has completed and I can expect that the new location(s) I've added to the index should now show up when I do a Windows Search.
