Hi, Phil. Have you tried JAWS key plus ESCAPE to refresh the screen, not the page? This often resolves these kinds of problems, where you press a link, and the page doesn't seem to change at all.

Subject: Jaws and internet link problem

 

Hello All

 

Having a problem with Jaws as follows:

 

I go to my newspaper server website and log in with no problem.
I initiate the listing of newspaper links and chose a news paper with no problem as well.
The newspaper's listing of sections is read by Jaws and displayed but when a sections link is chosen the listing of articles do not appear. I can still arrow around to the different section link choices but the articles never come up.

 

This happens with Edge, Internet Explorer and Firefox used as browsers.
I am assuming this is a Jaws problem as everything works fine if I switch over to Windoweyes.

 

Has anybody had a similar problem and how did you fix it?

 

TIA

 

Phil

Also try Chrome  or useing the Jaws cursor. also you can try the Jaws 2021 beta and see if it fixes the issue.

I been noticing that this kind of thing is happening more and more. Sometimes useing the tuch cursor: insert and the numpad plus key twice, will show you the info and once you find it you can focus the PC cursor on it. But this is hit or miss at best.

That is what I have suspected.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to have access to his computer as he doesn't have a screen reader and is not really tech savy.  I have put the files in my Dropbox public folder and sent him a link via email.

Did you wait for the files to finish transferring? If there was a lot of them it would take a minute or 3. Clicking on the remove drive before the files finished could result in the transfer being canceled.

The other thing that I was thinking, are these files being copied from dropbox? If so, sometimes there is a dialog box that opens to ask you if you want to copy the files without their properties. If you don’t know this is open it will copy the folders but not the files. Just a suggestion. If you need any help, reply

Are you using the built-in security app so come on those little drives? If I was you I would do a full format on the drive then copy the files. If it’s not the little security app on the drive. I’ve never seen this before and I don’t know what you can do.

That’s very strange.

I wonder if JAWS is reading bits of some non-standard window that’s being overlaid somehow. It sounds like a *part* of something rather than full/legible  words.

Has a sighted person looked at your screen recently and seen anything strange?

Do NVDA or Narrator also read “eb dessi”?

Do you get this more often with virtual cursor than with pc cursor (IE, more often in web time environments)?

How about if you zipped the folders up and sent them as an attachment in an email?

Are you using the built-in security app so come on those little drives? If I was you I would do a full format on the drive then copy the files. If it’s not the little security app on the drive. I’ve never seen this before and I don’t know what you can do.

I copied the files from my documents folder on my computer by selecting the folder in My Documents, copying to the clip board, Alt Tab to the thumb drive and pasting.  Then I closed My Documents and the thumb drive, went to the System Tray and went to Safely Remove Device button, hit it and arrowed down to the drive and hit Enter and waited until it said that it is now safe to remove the drive.

Right, but how did they get onto the thumb drive?

Was it from a dropbox folder on a computer?

The files are from a thumb drive.  Actually, two thumb drives were tried, the second one being brand new.

The other thing that I was thinking, are these files being copied from dropbox? If so, sometimes there is a dialog box that opens to ask you if you want to copy the files without their properties. If you don’t know this is open it will copy the folders but not the files. Just a suggestion. If you need any help, reply

The new drive did have a program for cloud storage on it, but no security program.  I did not get the drive back from my friend.

No it’s a little program that comes on the thumb drive itself most of the bigger thumb drive suppliers supply these little security programs on the drive. I always format the drive completely and get rid of all that stuff before I use it. Has nothing to do with windows. If you get a brand new flash drive put it in your USB port. And open it you’ll see an application and a couple files that come on the hard drive. And sometimes these can cause issues. Substitute thumb drive everywhere says hard drive. :-) I’m using dictation on my phone…

Neither.  In fact, one of the drives used was brand new, because I first thought that the drive was corrupted.

You pulled the drive before the copying was done, or the drive is defective would be my top two guesses.
