Thanks, Brian! Honestly, my university has been struggling with this – they seem to be stumped. Go figure.

In response to a recent set of questions about accessible, fillable forms in MS-Word I did a major rewrite of my tutorial about same, using Word 2016 for the screenshots, keyboard shortcuts, etc., to bring it entirely up to date (as nothing has changed from 2016 through Office 365 in this respect). I thought it might be of interest to some of the readers of the JAWS group.  I tried to make the tutorial on creating them accessible as well.  Screenshots have alt-text and I've tried to include all of the keyboard shortcuts for actually creating the legacy form content controls and adding the help text to them so that a screen reader announces what you've landed on and, if you hit F1, give additional details when that's necessary (or just repeat what you have focus on at the moment if you walked away or otherwise got distracted and need to refresh your memory).  The target audience is really sighted individuals, most of whom have never even attempted to make a fillable form, and if they have, they've almost certainly not bothered to add the help text to the various form fields, and that's the part that actually makes these things accessible.

I don't use insert on a web page.
Try just control + F and F3 to repeat it.
I only include the insert key in eMail messages.

Unfortunately not, and that's mostly because I don't have any real, high-powered PDF Editor at my disposal.

The concepts have got to be parallel, but the actual commands involved would vary depending on the specific PDF editing software used to create the fillable PDF.

And the last time I played with it, even though MS-Word can save as PDF, it cannot save its own fillable forms as a PDF equivalent.

moderated jaws smart navigation

Earlier I reported that when arrowing up and down on a web page Jaws would make a sound when falling on a link. Turns out that this is caused by having smart navigation enabled. It beeps when there is a line that both has some text and a link on the same line. Turning off smart navigation solves this issue.

I find that I have to arrow through a lot of extraneous verbiage before finding posts from others or the edit box where I can enter text. If I try to go to the edit box directly by using the "E" key, it often puts an 'E' in the edit box as if I was already in forms mode. Does anyone know how to get around this?

Hi,

 

I assume you are using the cable that was provided with your Focus 40 Blu by Freedom Scientific.

 

Are you able to see the Focus display in the list of drives on your computer?

 

I assume you read the instructions on how to connect and update your Focus.

 

If you are not able to see the Focus display as a drive, and you are using the USB cable supplied by Freedom Scientific when you got your display, I don’t see why it is not working. I would certainly contact support at Freedom Scientific and talk with them.

Subject: update for focus 40 braille display

 

I am having a little trouble updating my braille display. My USB will charge my display but even if I reset the display to USB, which I believebelievei have to do in order to do the installation, it does not recognize the display. I can use it in blue tooth though as I am now. I sure would like to update it though. Any suggestions?

Marlo,

If you try installing a Focus Blue firmware update for an older disp(the 4th Generation), for example, it might not work. Freedom Scientific says not to, so which display are you using? That is, the generation of display(5th or 4th). Also, I never have to quit my Norton Antivirus before installation. You might want to talk the problem out with FSLayy

I now have to press CTRL shand o to get into the favorites. iAftergetting to the one I'd like and pressing enter, I then have to hit f! to get into the actual site. Hope this helps. ift

Hi all,


the subject pretty much says it all.


I had a ton of favourites saved in a folder that had been previously imported from Firefox. Out of a habit, I saved every link in that particular folder, since it contained most of my everyday links.

I am so frustrated now!

Edge gave me its usual "Hello, welcome, and let's start to make your life better" screen where I was presented with various customisation options, and I closed out of that dialogue since I had previously gone through the entire process.

Also from my first launch of Edge on after the update, all the instructions were in English.


Now, I don't want to hear anything about backups, incremental this, and possible future strategies.

I just want to know if there's a way of retrieving my favourites that Microsoft nuked in the update process??

A file, folder, registry entry, whatever, where my old favourites might be stored?


I tried contacting MS through their disability helpline using Be My Eyes to no avail, since something is either wrong with the app or on their end.

Calling in directly isn't really possible unless I want to spend a ton of money on an international call.


Any thoughts?


Regards,

Nermin
