FYI!

I am a PC tekh for 12 years, and I am Comp-it certified!

 

 

Yes you can use just about any browser!

And if you need to find the default IP address you can use cmd.exe and the

IpConfig or Ipconfig /all switches

I did a serch for the word usb on the page! I just lookt at my router and one on front and one in the back, I think it will support printers and USB hard disk!

In the past I have owned Linksys, netgear, buffalo, and some other ones!

All was very good with Jaws!

I find the most inportent to find one with support for the stuff you are wanting to use!

 

I really like the buffalo router I had was very powerful WiFi, I got signals 4 or 5 apartments down at my friends place!

I think I used it for like 6 or 8 years!

 

I did try one of the Synology routers but it was not very good for Jaws, but the router are very nice and supports very much, it is like it’s own computer!

But are a bit expensive $ 190.00  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N5MPTG1/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B01N5MPTG1&linkCode=as2&tag=blindstuff-20&linkId=4689a9f57bb123997692bedd25c02aec

I didn’t see on the listing you linked to where it has USB.  Can you use a browser to interface with it for setting it up?  I don’t want to have to use an ap on my phone.

Hi.  Routers are accessible through their web interface.  Ask the technician who will help you set up your router to give you your router's web address.  The address might, for example, be 192.168.2.154, something like that.  Then you can access it as you would any web site and set up the router on your own if you need to.  Cheers!

Hi. Which vm software works well. Trying hyper v manager and using jaws remote. Have to do a lot of ocr. So, might just go with either vm ware workstation 30 day trial. And then just purchase it after, or with virtual box, if able to set up audio. So does either set up audio for that.

Any one done this.

Thanks.

And now for now. Will just get my friend to uinstall. Jaws reading a lot of things, and some of the items running into each other, and cannot hear any thing doing.

Any ideas.

Thanks..

No, Jaws drops into application mode automatically if it detects a web application, as far as I know you can’t deliberately enable it.

Not to mention, that it didn't tell me whether I was uploading a resume, a reference, or a cover letter.

 

I used rout jaws to pc to arrow around some, then used rooted pc to jaws to break out of it.

Jessica,

There is no need to apologize as this is a good question as this is something that many users will encounter with no explanation as to why it is happening. I'm going to paste a response to this question that I found from the JFW list from four years ago from Aaron Page, as I do like his explanation. I'll just add that pressing the PC cursor key twice is an easier way to exit application mode than pressing insert-z twice, which is what he learned to do at the time of his response. Here is his message.


Hi Ann,

Application Mode is a mode that JAWS will enter when it begins to interact with a web application. Application Mode is designed to treat the web application as if it were a typical Windows-based program, and not as a web page. The advantage to this is that application-specific keyboard shortcuts will work without the need to use the JAWS pass-through, the disadvantage is that typical JAWS keyboard shortcuts (i.e. "H" for headings, "B" for buttons) will not work as these keystrokes are now being passed through JAWS to the application.

When using web applications that trigger JAWS' Application Mode, it is usually very helpful to learn keyboard shortcuts that are specific to the application in order to effectively navigate and use the application. You should also have some success (if the application is accessible) navigating the web application using tab and the arrow keys.

You can usually tell that you are entering an application as JAWS will announce "Application", and upon pressing Enter you should hear JAWS beep as if it just entered a form. The most frustrating thing about application mode (in my opinion) is the difficulty in getting back out of the application. I usually will press Insert+Z to set the Virtual PC Cursor to off, and then press Insert+Z again to turn the Virtual PC Cursor back on. After turning off and back on the Virtual PC Cursor you should again be able to use normal JAWS keyboard shortcuts. If anyone on-list knows a better way to exit applications mode, I would love to hear it.

You can practice using applications mode on this page: https://www.tinymce.com/. If you press "R" to move through the regions you will encounter the application region, at which point you can press Enter to enter applications mode and begin interacting with the application. This example is an HTML text editor called TinyMCE, which is a commonly used editor that uses an application region and is relatively accessible.

Hope this helps!

Hello everyone:

The other day, I accessed a web site, which on the whole, was very accessible.

Unfortunately, there were 2 problems. the first, was the link, which took you to the shopping basket page. This link had no text lable, to tell a user of a screen reader the purpose of the link. The link is a standard HTML coded link.

the second is a standard HTML button, which also does not have a text label.
This button is for removing an item from the shopping basket.

My question is, is there a way within JAWS, where you can attach labels to specific links and buttons on an individual web site?

The link and button on this web site are not graphics

Thanks in anticipation.

moderated Re: undoing effect in Excel

 

Mario,

           I have never been clear whether this does something within JAWS itself (in which case what follows will probably not apply) or if it works with the Define Names command of Excel itself.

           If it is working with the Define Name command, I believe you can get rid of them by selecting the row/column you originally selected, hitting CTRL+SHIFT+F3, and when the dialog comes up for Create Names from Selection then uncheck the checkbox(es) checked, and hit OK.  I think that will undefine them.  It's worth a try, anyway, as the CTRL+SHIFT+F3 is how you initially define them via Excel itself based on what's the selected range.

Ashleigh, I forgot to tell you, but perhaps you already know, pressing the insert (or JAWS key) plus escape is screen update.

It’s now hit or miss as to whether JAWS will read e-mails as they’re open, bring up the thing where it says “mail start groups navigation” and a whole bunch of stuff, open the message but make it appear blank, or just crash. If I’m not making se4nse here, it doesn’t make sense to me either. However, I’m just wondering if any of you have had this issue? It’s been going on for me for quite some time but can’t really pin it on when my computer was taken into the shop for servicing/updates, and that was before I started my winter semester this year.

Thank you,

Ashleigh Piccinino

P.S. another happening with JAWS and the mail app is that I can’t reach any attachments with tabbing as JAWS just crashes. Everything’s on the latest updates, so …

Ashleigh, I forgot to tell you, but perhaps you already know, pressing the insert (or JAWS key) plus escape is screen update. I’m not sure if this is happening because I need to change something in settings, but I haven’t investigated further. All I know is that I can read my email messages and don’t have that other stuff—but I have to do it every time.

Yes, I have had this problem. Originally, we thought it was because my window was not maximized. But it kept happening. Here’s what I figured out: When you open the message, if it’s acting goofy, like you mentioned, press the JAWS key and Escape. I don’t know why it works, but it does. You might need to give it a couple seconds, but the message will read as it should.

 

HTH.

moderated undoing effect in Excel

I've used Alt+Control+JAWSKey+R which defines the selected columns as those containing row titles for the current region.
I've also used Alt+Control+JAWSKey+C which defines the selected rows as those containing column titles for the current region.

what do I have to do if I do not need or want the effect anymore?

Is this a network drive, as Chris suggested it might be, or is it a USB drive (whether flash or HDD or SSD), or is it a partition on one of the internal drives in your computer?

Windows search only searches indexed locations, and though you can set it to search non-indexed locations, believe me, you don't want to do that.  You need to open Control Panel, Indexing options and check to see what your indexed locations actually are a the moment.  If you wish to edit these to add or delete a drive, that drive has to be connected when you're attempting to do so.  Activate the Modify button, and at the top there is a grouping Change selected location that contains a list of locations with checkboxes next to them (and dropdown arrows to expand in case you only want to index some specific folder or folders in a drive).  Checking the checkbox for the drive you want to have searched will add it to the index.

You can add networked drives to the index, and that's well explained here:  https://www.online-tech-tips.com/windows-10/add-network-folder-to-windows-search-index/
