Also, if a link does shift you out of the site you were in, all it takes is a click of the Back button in your browser to go straight back to the page you just left, provided you haven't browsed around to multiple pages in the site you were taken to.  Back only works one page at a time, but if you do it immediately after a site shift you go right back to where you were.

Then look at the link.  If you're in the site xxx.com, and the link itself shows a domain that's anything other than xxx.com, then you will leave the site.  There is no other way to know this, regardless of whether you do it via screen reader checking or the sighted way by looking at the status bar on hover over on a link (since naked links are almost never used anymore - click-through text that tells you what the link is about showing you long ago supplanted naked URLs).

Not exactly.  I have not encountered any real difference with right mouse click versus using the Context Menu/Applications Key or SHIFT+F10.  But, I have encountered problem after problem with emulated left mouse click.

As I noted, on a laptop one shields the mousepad portion that controls mouse movement, or on a desktop one masks the laser on the underside of the mouse itself (or removes the ball, if you have a really ancient mouse), to avoid unintentional mouse movement.  Then, if you have focus (sometimes requiring routing of screen reader to PC, but not always) you can simply left click instead of going through the gyrations with emulated left click, which I often find does not work.

Having been in "the accessibility business" for a very long time now I do not understand why mouse use with a mouse suitably modified to prevent accidents is not encouraged more often.  I understand why one would not ever want to use an unmodified mouse/mouse pad, as movement of the pointer can and often does blow what you're attempting to do out of the water.  But if you make things such that the mouse no longer controls the pointer, it gives you the two, real, hard mouse keys for use when you need them.  The modifications are simple and result in another arrow in the accessibility quiver.  And an arrow one need only use if one so chooses when it makes life easier.

I just want to know if a link is going to take me to an entirely new site. Sometimes I prefer to stay on the same site because I'm already familiar with it.

Mike,
The mouse gives no more options than does the context menu key.
The problem with an actual mouse is that we may move it off the item while moving to it.
Some use the right button on a touch pad, but I typically disable this in control panel or with the function key if possible, so I don't accidentally touch the touch pad.
So for most, the context key is best.
BTW, I don't understand why anyone would prefer the right touch pad button over an applications key, but if your computer has no applications key, it may be better than doing shift + F10.

Amen to that, and for anyone when a laptop is in use.  It is so much more convenient to use a hard right click (or left click), avoiding emulation of any kind, and it's simple to do in laptop settings and even desktop settings if you have an optical mouse and tape over the laser port on the bottom that is responsible for actual mouse movement.  I have all my clients who are laptop users simply cover the mousepad area with a thin piece of cardboard so they can't activate it, but that can also be flipped open on those occasions where a sighted assistant is called in to help since most of them cannot function without a mouse or mouse pad.  When that's been done you still have full use of the left and right click buttons when needed, and within reach of your thumbs.

I have yet to find a screen reader that reliably, in all cases, has its left click emulation in particular work.  I have nothing against SHIFT+F10 or the Applications Key (very commonly called the menu or context menu key) when it's available.  But there are very distinct advantages to actual left and right click on many occasions.

And that's whether you're blind or sighted or somewhere in between.

Hi,
The right mouse click has benefits over the key strokes especially for those who are sighted. It is slightly faster than a key stroke and does not require that your finger leave the mouse for a key stroke. As a blind individual I still find myself using the right click with a keystroke instead of the application key .
Force of habit and what is "used to". I am glad that the application key and F10 keys are a good alternative but I don't know that one is better than another.

Why would they right click on anything?

That is why we have an applications key, or for computers without one, you can do shift + F10.
Every file type and item on the computer gives you options to it that are relative to the object that you right click on, whether it is a picture file, audio file, or web page or eMail link.
Try going to a web link and doing applications or shift + F10 and see what your options are.
You can copy the link, from one of the options, and you can paste that into notepad or a blank message for inspection, and you'll have your answer.
I wonder if folks even use the applications key or shift + F10 sometimes.
It has so many implications that will save users a lot of unneeded steps.

If you're really suspicious about a link then submit it for analysis on virustotal.com.

As to whether it takes you out of a give site or not, there's nothing necessarily suspicious about a link if it does.  It's very common, in many circumstances, to give links that direct one to references not on the same site as the content being read.  Newspaper and periodical articles are rife with such links.

Adrian,

You are entirely correct that the issues I was experiencing had nothing to
do with focus; I was confused about maintaining focus with ribbons, and
thought that that might help me out. The issue is within the calendar
section of the scheduling program which I am using, and it is a strange one.
I switched to the Brave browser and now the program works correctly for the
week of November 8-14, but not for the previous week--as I mentioned, very
strange.

Hi everyone,

I have a website-based question; I am using Windows 10 and Jaws 2020.

I am the primary admin for a Eucharistic adoration ministry in my parish,
and that ministry uses a web-based application called We Adore Him to
control adorer scheduling.  I have successfully used the software since
August 2018 and, after being shut down by COVID-19 since mid-March, we are
preparing to open the chapel again.  As a result, I have been assisting
adorers to choose an hour in the weekly calendar.
All went well until Wednesday, October 21, when the weekly calendar suddenly
would not display when I arrowed to it; it now displays the hour at
midnight, tells me that one slot is available, and when I arrow down in
order to go to a particular hour of the day, I am at the bottom of the
screen.

I am using the Jaws cursor which appears for all websites, and I have
checked to be sure that my screen is maximized and in full-screen mode in
Chrome.  A sighted tech-savvy friend has assisted me via Zoom and
screen-share, and she tells me that the full schedule, showing adorers
signed up for this or that hour--is showing on the screen.  I have contacted
On Fire Media to ask them if they have been testing and that might be the
reason for my issue, but they have not.  They are aware of Jaws and have a
demo copy to use.  I can navigate the screen in My Dashboard if I want to
update the settings in my account, but whenever I choose "Schedule", choose
the particular week, I only see the first entry.

I honestly don't know if this is a Jaws focus issue or something entirely
different.  Can you please remind me of the keystrokes for the rotor which a
user can look at in the case of a focus issue?  Or, alternatively, do you
have other suggestions?

I have tried everything I can think of.

Thank you for any ideas or suggestions,

Greg Daniel

First of all, a Microsoft Disability answer Desk technician's assertions that the latest Windows release doesn't work with JAWS 2019 may be rumor or misinformation, since most of those folks have never actually tested any Windows releases with any screen readers.
Second, I see no real reason why JAWS 2019 must keep getting developed and updated in order to work with new Windows releases, when that version is already two versions behind the impending 2021. This is not a case of Microsoft steaming ahead without consulting the blind; it's a case of the blind not wanting to fork over cash for the most expensive screen reader on the market just to experience accessibility with current Windows releases.

I am using the Jaws cursor which appears for all websites, and I have checked to be sure that my screen is maximized and in full-screen mode in Chrome.  A sighted tech-savvy friend has assisted me via Zoom and screen-share, and she tells me that the full schedule, showing adorers signed up for this or that hour--is showing on the screen.  I have contacted On Fire Media to ask them if they have been testing and that might be the reason for my issue, but they have not.  They are aware of Jaws and have a demo copy to use.  I can navigate the screen in My Dashboard if I want to update the settings in my account, but whenever I choose "Schedule", choose the particular week, I only see the first entry.

 

I honestly don't know if this is a Jaws focus issue or something entirely different.  Can you please remind me of the keystrokes for the rotor which a user can look at in the case of a focus issue?  Or, alternatively, do you have other suggestions?

 

I have tried everything I can think of.

 

Thank you for any ideas or suggestions,
