But if you want to find out what folder that file or program is in, then what do you do?

When I am using chrome and do a download after the download has completed when chrome is in focus do a shift f6 and that puts you on the name of the downloaded file.  So because I work a lot with log analysis programs like splunk and the downloaded files are csv files then all I do is when the filename is in focus hit the space bar and the file is opened up.

 

But again that is with chrome.

 

Have a good day.

Dear Listers:

 

I currently am running the latest version of Windows and am also using the latest version of JAWS.  If you download something without designating a path, how do you go about finding out what folder your download is in?  I know that you search for something by opening up the Search box by pressing the Alt key, but although this finds the file you are looking for it doesn’t tell you what folder that file is in.

Hi Richard,

 

When you first open Team viewer, you will need to tab down to a field that says: “Your ID:” and provide the person that will control your computer the digits in that field.

 

Tab to: “Password: and provide the password that is generated.

 

This only will work if you are using the Team Viewer as a free version. I’m not sure what happens if you purchased a license.

 

Once the person connecting to your computer has entered those pieces of information they should be connected and be able to take over. You should be on the phone if there is something specific that you are looking for help with if the person is not very familiar with your computer setup. You don’t have to unload JAWS and if you need to take control, the helper can let you take over and you don’t need to disconnect.

 

I hope this is helpful information.

 

Milton

I would like to know that as well.

Teamviewer is not very accessible at all, and the Jaws command to identify the version just says “version” with no information.

I couldn’t figure out how to give access to a technician to take control of my computer and could barely deal with the connection.

At least, between Teamviewer and Skype he was able to direct me to the braille driver that was getting in the way.

 

But I would say that whatever the current version of Teamviewer is, it isn’t very accessible.

Hi, Shan. He's not necessarily talking about finding a file he just downloaded, although that can be the case, if, for some reason, the browser isn't saving downloaded files to the Downloads folder. It's trying to find a file on your system that has been moved to another folder, and you can't remember where it has been moved. Even then, the trick is trying to find out which folder has been opened, even if you use the trick in Chrome to which you are referring.

I agree that there is a problem with using Q Read  with jaws if you want to read by paragraph but you should be aware that this problem disappears with an alternative screenreader like Narrator.

If you use control down arrow in Q Read with Narrator running the content reads absolutely predictably and fine, at least it does here.

I have QRead. However, like I said earlier, you cannot go para by para in it. It’s just line by line or say all. And those are not feasible for large docs, in which you need to skim through some things and read the rest with care.

 

Adobe Reader is mostly fine. Except for slight jumping and words being jumbled up sometimes. I am just worried about skating over content or going to the wrong place in the document by mistake. Can you confirm that the jump is generally only of 1 or 2 lines and only when turning pages?

I do know that headings are displayed in bookshare books.
The find command is also very useful.
By tabbing you can find your position in the text, so you can kind of tell of you've skipped quite a bit and get back fairly easily.
I use it for all kinds of books--reference, textbooks, etc.

bring it back where I need to when it jumps, I remain quite worried.
That I might miss some vital info or internalize it wrongly if I fail
to notice the jump. Does anyone else face this? How do you get around
it? Converting every pdf into word is not very viable.. and can muff
up footnotes. Copy pasting it into word makes a 10 page pdf a 30 page
word doc. And makes quick reading very hard. So what can one do?

I have QRead. However, like I said earlier, you cannot go para by para in it. It’s just line by line or say all. And those are not feasible for large docs, in which you need to skim through some things and read the rest with care.

Adobe Reader is mostly fine. Except for slight jumping and words being jumbled up sometimes. I am just worried about skating over content or going to the wrong place in the document by mistake. Can you confirm that the jump is generally only of 1 or 2 lines and only when turning pages?

It doesn't seem to track very well with my braille display, sadly. I usually
use it to open pdf, mobi or epub files, and then convert to good ole' plain
text and just read 'em in notepad.

It will also read pretty large books.
For example, I do read study bibles with it, and they are pretty long.
But it does have its limitations.

It does work and was worth the purchase, but an important caveat is that
it's really meant for very simple documents only. It doesn't really have
many features and in some cases you may still be better off using Adobe. I
think it's mostly designed for e-books, as in, the type of books you would
read for pleasure -- and it works very well for that purpose.

Purchase qread and read pdfs using that. It works way better than Adobe.

Hi. I open PDFs in Adobe Reader. JAWS sometimes jumps around of its own
accord in pdfs, especially when transitioning from one page to another. and
has to be redirected. Even jaws 2020. While I am able to bring it back where
I need to when it jumps, I remain quite worried. That I might miss some
vital info or internalize it wrongly if I fail to notice the jump. Does
anyone else face this? How do you get around it? Converting every pdf into
word is not very viable.. and can muff up footnotes. Copy pasting it into
word makes a 10 page pdf a 30 page word doc. And makes quick reading very
hard. So what can one do?

It should gave the option to opbe  the Twitter website with a authurize button. Once you press that their should be a 4 digit pin.

It's asking me for a pin, but I haven't received one. 
What should I do? 

My options are ok and cancel. 

Will the app notify me of new tweets? 
Thanks,

Hi,

 

I just got Twitter the other day, & downloaded the windows app.

 

It seems accessible, but doesn’t appear to have very good keyboard shortcuts.

 

Can anyone tell me the best way to use Twitter with jaws?

 

It’d be nice if whatever apps are mentioned are free, & offer notifications.

 

Thanks,

Hey All,

A week or so ago I had a question about VmWare and function keys and got a reply from Jim Weiss. I still have a question or two for him but due to technical difficulties I lost his email address.

So Jim if you see this, please reply so that we can take this offline. Or, if anyone on this list has his address, please reply. Thanks.
