Thanks for this info, Brian.

 

I also have Be My Eyes, through which I can contact Google Disability Support.

 

A few list members have also given me some suggestions which I’m going to try first.

 

Very much appreciate the info.

Hi, Tom. I just tried importing Internet Explorer settings into Google Chrome. I was able to perform this action without any problems. I suggest the following,

 

1. Uninstall Google Chrome.

2. Open the User folder on your Windows OS drive.

3. Go to your UserName, Open the folder, and open AppData.

4. Look at the Local, Local-o and Roaming folders within AppData.

5. Find a folder called Google within one or more of these three folders, and delete it.

6. Reinstall Google Chrome.

7. See if this clears up the problem.

 

Windows fails to clean up folders where data is stored, and because files are left behind, a simple uninstall sometimes fails to correct the problem.

Gerald:

 

These are the steps that worked for me previously.

 

However, now, after I select “import from Internet Explorer” from the combo box containing Microsoft Edge and other options, I get kicked out of the import wizzard and can’t find the “import” button.

 

Once again, the frustrating thing is that this strategy used to work just fine.

 

If someone wants to give it a try on their end, please do so, and let us know how you do.

 

Thank you!

To import IE favorites into Chrome, open Chrome and press alt-F, followed by B to get to the bookmarks menu, then scroll down to the Import Bookmarks and Settings option and press enter to open it.  Then just follow the prompts.  Google will create a submenu under Bookmarks called Imported From IE which will contain a list of all your IE favorites.

Thanks for the revised e-mail address for Google Disability Support.

 

I’m half tempted to e-mail them first to see if they can send me written instructions for importing my IE favorites into Google Chrome.

 

However, I’d be willing to bet that they send me the same instructions I’ve already posted here.

 

I think something has changed in relation to how things work after the source selection is made in the combo box I mentioned previously.

Hello,

 

A few things. First, If you have JAWS set to run from the System tray, Insert J will work to bring up the JAWS menu, but Caps Lock J will not. Caps Lock is not perfectly substitutable as a modifier key 100 percent of the time, and this is one example where it is not. Second, however you get into the JAWS menus, once you are in, just hit A for About and the JAWS version will be revealed. And third, Control Insert V works poorly for telling you the version of Office you are in. It says pretty meaningless stuff about 16 something or other, regardless of what version you are using. Better is to hit Alt F D A and your Office version will be spoken clearly. When I did this, it clearly said Office 365. If you have 2016 or 2019, it would clearly say that too.

moderated Rearranging headers in Thunderbird? Here's how!

Leo
 

How to rearrange  the column headers in Thunderbird?

Working on Thunderbird Version 78.6.0.

 

In order to successfully accomplish this, we have to bare in mind four Jaws commands. I use Jaws commands for Desktop layout, so if you are using a laptop, you can bring up the dialogue  called search for Jaws commands, and type a concise description for each one of them.

 

We require the following commands:

 

Activate touch cursor

Root Jaws cursor to touch cursor

Root touch cursor to Jaws cursor

Lock left button of the mouse

 

This is so much simpler  than it looks. What we are going to do is no rocket science, and it can be described as positioning the touch cursor right on the clickable element that we want to drag and drop, then  we root the Jaws cursor right to this point, and we  use the command to simulate holding down the left button of the mouse. Followingly, we move around using the touch cursor to place  the cursor in the insertion point in which  we want to drop our element, and lastly,  we stop holding down the left button of the mouse.

If you use a desktop as I do, make sure to turn off NumLock during all the drag and drop process.

Step by step instructions:

 

1.     Go to the first message in the list, and activate the touch cursor, Shift plus  NumPadPlus.

2.     Press left Arrow and the first item you will hear will be  “select columns to display,” keep pressing left arrow and you will find the column headers, date, junk status, read, etc. In case, the first item you hear  after pressing left arrow is “list,” press down arrow once, and press right arrow to move around the column headers.

3.     Go to the column header that you wan to drag,  and root the jaws cursor to the touch cursor, Jaws key plus shift plus NumPad minus.

4.     Now hold down the left button of the mouse by pressing jaws key plus  NumPad slash . At this point,  you are simulating holding down the left button of the mouse right on the element you want to drag around.

5.     In order to move around the headers and place the cursor in the point in which you want to drop your element, root the touch cursor to Jaws cursor by pressing  Jaws key plus shift plus NumPadPlus. Now you can Move rightward or leftward using the arrow keys again.

6.     When you find the place in which you want to drop your element, root the Jaws cursor to touch cursor by pressing Jaws key plus shift plus NumPadMinus.

7.     Finally, press Jaws key plus NumPadSlash to drop your element.

 

As a sidenote, you can monitor which cursor is currently active all the way down the line by using the command Alt plus Delete.

 

Ok, it may sound to such a tangled maze of rooting one cursor to another back and forth,  but here you got a couple of general notions about the process!

 

Basically, you use  touch cursor to move around the items, Jaws cursor to place the focus of the cursor both in the initial position and in the final position, and locking or holding the left button of the mouse both to indicate the action to drag and to indicate the action to drop the element.

 

I know this is not technically accurate from a visual perspective, but I’m neither a sighted nor partially sighted guy, and I believe is more relevant to describe actions from a functional perspective for the final user.

When you are at the desktop, you can use the JAWS icon, for the version you are using to open the JAWS Context Window for that version of JAWS .

If you are anywhere else in Windows, such as in a menu or in a Windows applet or, you are in a program, such as File Explorer or Outlook, etc., and you are using the JAWS Desktop Keyboard layout, use the JAWS/INSERT+J keystroke, to open the JAWS Context Window, for the version of JAWS you are using.

Likewise,If you are anywhere else in Windows, such as in a menu or in a Windows applet or, you are in a program, such as File Explorer or Outlook, etc., and you are using the JAWS Laptop Keyboard Layout, use the CTRL+SHIFT+J keystroke, to open the JAWS Context Window for the version of JAWS you are using.

Hi,


I just press Insert+j.

Another thing you can try is this: while on the desktop, press j until you get to your desired JAWS version, then press enter, pretending you want to start JAWS again. Instead of starting JAWS, either the context menu or the main window will come up.


If the context menu comes up, press cursor up twice to get to the "About..." option within the menu, then press enter.

Generally, you can use insert+1 to get into keyboard help mode in JAWS, and Insert+1 again to leave it.

With that in mind, Madison, what happens if you press Insert+1, then press insert+j while in keyboard help mode?

Use speech history to copy what it says by pressing JAWSKey+Space, followed by h. That will open up a speech history window you can navigate through and copy from using control+a, then Control+c to copy its contents.

Also, it would be very helpful if we knew the exact brand and name of the laptop in question.

Maybe you have some weird keyboard functions activated or some sort of multi media key conficuration.


Regards,

Nermin

It’s a Lenovo, but I honestly don’t remember what the model number and make is.

Which, for the sake of complete clarity, is what make and model number? There is definitely some variation in laptop keyboards, and particularly when it comes to models that do not include any number pad.
