For that matter, you could run NVDA on both machines and use that, it's free
and has less overhead for the memory than Jaws does.

Glenn / Lenny
 


I use Linux a lot, and the times I have used Windows 10, I have been disappointed at the changes, such as in the start menu, and turning off courtana and then there are the ribbons.
Linux still uses the pull down menus like in good old windows, and as far as the desktop, the only three differences that stand out are 1, getting to the desktop, that is done with alt control D instead of windows M or D.
And 2, the start menu in Linux is alt F1 instead of using just the start menu in old windows, win 10 seems to have mucked this up in some configurations, and 3, the run program windows is alt F2, instead of the windows R in windows.
I think MS has made a lot more drastic changes than all that with windows 10.
Of course the command-line in Linux that is comparable to the command window in Windows operates pretty much the same, but the command names are different, but following the same concept as the command line in Windows, but I think few people any more do much at the command-line anyway.
But in Linux, you still use alt F4, and still alt tab, control C to copy and its associated file commands for pasting and the like are the same as in windows and lots more.
When in programs, you still have the typical old pull down menus like file and view and tools or whatever that are activated with alt whatever.
I know that folks often think learning another operating system would be daunting, but the fact that there is a separate list for windows 10 users is evidence that there are enough differences between 7 and 10 that the 10 users are best served on another list.
And the screenreader in Linux can use the Eloquence voice for a cost of 5 dollars, so you feel much like you are using NVDA in Windows.
But hey, this is a windows list, so I will stop my soap box here, and thanks for the checkbox information for windows 10.

Not really.  Not by a long shot.  But . . .

The easiest way to get rid of the checkbox option globally on any Windows system is:

1. Open Control Panel, File Explorer Options (or Windows Explorer Options on earlier systems - the steps that follow are for Windows 10 and would have analogous ones in earlier versions of Windows).

2. Navigate to the View Tab, and then to the checkbox for Use check boxes to select items.  Uncheck it if it is checked.

3. Activate the OK button to exit.

You're done.

Money Talks is a completely accessible bank account management software
package developed by American Printing House (APH). This software package
offers the user a simple and effective means of recording and maintaining
accurate information for a variety of accounts. The user can import and use
electronic banking information to reconcile accounts, remember the last
workspace used in the program, emboss or print the check register in a
variety of formats, and print many types of bank checks. Can be used with a
screen reader or with its own self-voicing feature.

But in his file window, that is, windows explorer, he has a ribbon, and I couldn't find tools and options on his file window.
I use 7, so I don't know the differences in 10 very well.

If by File Explorer you mean Windows Explorer, here's what to do.
 
Open Windows Explorer.
press Alt-T for Tools, O for options.
In the property page that opens, shift tab to the tab controls and right arrow to the view tab.
Tab to the tree view and find the item called "Use check boxes to select items." I pressed the letter U and jumped right to it.
Press spacebar to unselect the tree view item.
Tab to OK and press spacebar.
 
If File Explorer is different than Windows Explorer, maybe File Explorer copied the menu choices, property page and so on from Windows Explorer. Couldn't hurt to try.

This is interesting, because I use the WR feature on all my meetings without problems.


1. Open the participants list (PL) with Alt+U.

2. Focus on the list of participants.

3. Press Shift+TAB until a list box--I think it's a list box--is located
with names or telephone numbers of those in the waiting room (WR).

4. Press Down Arrow to make sure you are focused on a name or phone
number with whom you wish to communicate via the "Message" button, or
whom you want to admit to the conference via the "Admit" button.

5. TAB to the appropriate button and press ENTER to activate it.


If the person admitted to the conference is the last one in the WR, the
entire list object will disappear. Either way, you're still in the PL pane.

Unless your meetings are vast I don't really know why you need the Waiting room as you are able, with a screenreader to easily identify all the meeting participants so once people are congregated in the meeting you can then review and check the participants list before the meeting starts and identify any potential interloper. This is essentially exactly the same check you would make with a waiting room anyway as far as I can tell. The waiting room formalises admission but if an interloper is there you can then if necessary terminate the meeting if they do not leave.

Hi David/all,
I would like to have easier access to waiting room controls, and Hartgen's scripts have been immensely helpful to me. However, I would wish to describe a situation I am going to face in a few days, where the waiting room is an absolutely crucial part. Due to the current lockdown, we are going to hold distance exams. The easiest thing when you may be having some 100 students, is to hold several sessions of oral exams, which allow little time for students to refer to their books. If I had no waiting room, they would all come in and I could not hold a person by person exam, plus one trusted postgraduate as invigilator and helpful coordinator in case of technical issues. I am going to issue a notice telling them they will be admitted to the waiting room and they should be waiting there, until I admit each one in turn. By the way, everyone seems to suggest disabling the waiting room here on our group. I hold a pro account and within settings find no such option, or rather, I find it permanently checked.
Take care,
Takis

discover that I lose JAWS speech. I am using the latest version of JAWS2020.
Audio from zoom also does not come through.
Has anyone else noticed this? I did install silenzio because I noticed that
sound had been choppy but I have also tried uninstalling it and also
uninstalling and reinstalling Zoom to no avail.
Thank you in advance for any responses.

Hello Kevin,
Thank you for your reply. Prior to changing the audio speaker setting
to same as system in the hopes of being able to regain speech again,
I was actually able to hear the host and all people presenting. Now
that I have done this, all speech is lost once I enter Zoom. I have
tried to change the setting back to just my headphones instead of same
as system but speech still does not return and I still cannot hear
anyone.

Hello,

I have been waiting to respond to this persons question/concern.

I personally have experienced the same problem she describes regarding the use of Zoom and the Aftershokz blutooth headset.

I don't think it is a JAWS problem and think that it is an Aftershokz problem as every other person reporting on this topic are using a different brand blutooth headset and are not experiencing the problem like the Aftershokz.

I will be going to the Aftershokz website to see if I can send them a message and see what they say.

Milton

This is interesting, because I   use the WR feature on all my meetings without problems.


1. Open the participants list (PL) with Alt+U.

2. Focus on the list of participants.

3. Press Shift+TAB until a list box--I think it's a list box--is located with names or telephone numbers of those in the waiting room (WR).

4. Press Down Arrow to make sure you are focused on a name or phone number with whom you wish to communicate via the "Message" button, or whom you want to admit to the conference via the "Admit" button.

5. TAB to the appropriate button and press ENTER to activate it.


If the person admitted to the conference is the last one in the WR, the entire list object will disappear. Either way, you're still in the PL pane.

This does not help I know but it is not and individual issue.
Unless your meetings are vast I don't really know why you need the Waiting room as you are able, with a screenreader to easily identify all the meeting participants so once people are congregated in the meeting you can then review and check the participants list before the meeting starts and identify any potential interloper. This is essentially exactly the same check you would make with a waiting room anyway as far as I can tell. The waiting room formalises admission but if an interloper is there you can then if necessary terminate the meeting if they do not leave.

Unfortunately looking at the Zoom Professional page on Hartgen consultancy the Waiting Room does not appear to be covered.

Hello,
I am having an issue with the waiting room in Zoom where I am not able to find the participant to admit or JAWS announces that the participant list is open but the waiting room participants are not able to be located. I need to keep the waiting room setting enabled as I am using this in a work environment. Would the Zoom professional scripts from Hartgen consultancy resolve these issues?
Thank you in advance for any responses.

For what it is worth, Jonathan Mosen’s book is excellent, but also 3 years old.

 

Perhaps the new book covers some of the newer settings, I don’t know.

 

Maybe one of you Android users needs to write one, or record one.

But why hasn’t anyone done one for Android yet?

 

Interesting.

Hi all,

 

A colleague of mine at the Carroll Center for the Blind has just written a book on using Zoom with screen readers and VoiceOver on the iPhone. It is the first text-based book written on the topic, and I think it is well-written and quite comprehensive. You can order it for $18 at:

I agree fully. Really leaving Android users in the dark, as it were.
