One word: ninite.  Download Libreoffice from there and just run the downloader again when you wish to update.

I then tried it with NVDA, and was able to download the newer version and install it from my downloads folder.

After getting 7.1.03 installed with the usual reboot, I checked again for updates with Jaws 2021 running, and had to shut down because I couldn’t kill the process.

I will be writing them some feedback.

I do not use it much, but when I installed it to deal with a particular conversion issue it worked very well.

When you open it, at least for me, you get the following as you tab:

LibreOffice 7.0 checked
Open File Button‑ O
Remote Files Button‑ s
Recent Files button menu‑ R
Templates button menu‑ e
Writer Document Button‑ W
Calc Spreadsheet Button‑ C
Impress Presentation Button‑ I

I only played a little with the calc spread sheet and the writer, but given that it is free, it is well worth checking out.

Hi, I don’t know if you have already done what I’m going to suggest, but after  adding headings to my word documents,

I usually create a table content in the first page, in this way, whenever I open my document, I can jump to a specific topic quicker than you can say Jack Robinson!

I have a long JAWS help file where I keep my notes on using JAWS with various software.  What is the easiest way to add headings so that I can turn on quick keys and navigate this large document with level 1 and level 2 headings?  The style task pane seemed a bit intimidating.  I can go back to my Window Eyes and Word 2010 book from Cathie Ann to see if she covers the topic more thoroughly, but hoping someone can answer for this simple aspect. Using JAWS 2021 and Word 2016.  I really need a better way to find topics in this document, over the way I’ve been doing it.

Check your notification settings.  The new version itself will not cause you to not receive notifications.

It works fine.

Even when I get the notifications, I go to: www.freedomscientific.com/downloads/jaws and get the whole package anyway.

I find sometimes updating while Jaws is running is not a smooth experience, so I also unload Jaws when I run the .exe file.

But, to each his or her own.

Hi,

 

Just a note for this thread, when you are dealing with google, Amazon, or even Apple devices, these companies are considered the Big 3 when it comes to gathering data on User experience(UX). Every time you use their website or devices that are connect to the internet, you’re being tracked. Your UX is stored in monster size data warehouses. In other words, through the use of artificial intelligence(AI), you and your friends that you connect with is cross checked and analyzed for patterns(your habits) and they use this auto filling and what pop up advertisements you receive. The only way to cut down on this data gathering is to remove the stored cookies or do not agree to allow cookies and time to time delete your browser cache.

2. Navigate to the You and Google Pane (which is actually where you should have landed when Settings opens), and once in the Pane itself navigate to Sync & Google Services control, and activate it

3. Navigate to the toggle for, Autocomplete searches and URLs, and toggle it off.

This will not prevent the "previously visited" list from appearing beneath the address bar as you type, but it prevents anything from autocompleting in the address bar itself as you type.

'If you are using Outlook, it has the ability to create rules that would automatically move emails from a particular address into a folder and you can assign a different sound to those messages.
You would want to create a folder first, but this is at a level that would be hard to write out instructions for.
Microsoft accessibility would likely help you with this.
Or maybe someone knows a good online tutorial.

Clarence,

Do you have a smart phone, such as an iPhone?  I highly recommend using AIRA service for these frustrating website issues.  You can get 5 minutes of personal assistance every few hours. They also used to have a promotion for free support to job seekers; I don’t know if that is still going.  Look at the www.aira.io website.  Essentially, you load an app on your phone that allows you to call into a set of trained personal, visual assistants who can use your phone camera to see what is going on and guide you.  You can additionally load a program on your computer that will allow the assistant to access your computer to actually do tasks for you, but this is not necessary.  I’ve used the service on some applications at work that are not fully accessible with JAWS.

When the Blind Mice Mall Movie Vault uses direct download it works great.

If you have to use the free SendSpace download it is a pain.

If you buy a subscription for say 1 month to the high speed download
with Sendspace, it works well.



As for other sites, I know of none that have mp3 files with audio
description like what Blind Mice Mall offers.



Then, you are left with finding movie or TV shows for rent or purchase
that include Audio Description or subscribing to services like Netflix
who provide audio description on all their original content, or Disney
Plus which offers a lot of movies and series with audio description.

The best source for finding out what shows have audio description is
through ACB.

I have a long JAWS help file where I keep my notes on using JAWS with various software.  What is the easiest way to add headings so that I can turn on quick keys and navigate this large document with level 1 and level 2 headings?  The style task pane seemed a bit intimidating.  I can go back to my Window Eyes and Word 2010 book from Cathie Ann to see if she covers the topic more thoroughly, but hoping someone can answer for this simple aspect. Using JAWS 2021 and Word 2016.  I really need a better way to find topics in this document, over the way I’ve been doing it.

Check your notification settings.  The new version itself will not cause you to not receive notifications.

It works fine.

Even when I get the notifications, I go to: www.freedomscientific.com/downloads/jaws and get the whole package anyway.

I find sometimes updating while Jaws is running is not a smooth experience, so I also unload Jaws when I run the .exe file.

But, to each his or her own.

Not sure if anyone has noticed, when in Microsoft Teams and using ctrl+2 to bring up the chat list, you can arrow down and if you want to remove one of the chats, there is a hide option if you arrow down.  It is the one after the mute option.

JAWS seems to read some random things at the beginning when you arrow to the option as below:

moderated Re: Why variations in Jaws versions?

Richard Turner
 

Probably because JAWS Version 2021.2012.57.400 is an incremental update.

That way you can decide if you want to install it or not.

You can read the details on What’s new on the downloads web site.

Jaws comes out with almost monthly updates to add features or fix minor bugs.

It is a nice change from the days when they charged money for each incremental update.
