moderated Set keyboard echo

Bill White
 

What is the JAWS keystroke for changing keyboard echo on the fly? I thought it was INSERT plus W, but when I invoke that keystroke, it takes me to Windows commands.

 

Thank you.

If you want that message not to display, press the windows key and type the word "autoplay". There are choices concerning what you want the computer to do when it sees various types of external devices--SD card, flash drive, and so on. When you find the choice you want, you have to press enter on it or the computer won't remember. then tab to the next device and choose again.
the next time you plug in an external device, windows/autoplay will do whatever you set it to do.

What I want is to hit the download link and have the item go directly to my Downloads folder without any other interaction. At the moment, unless I go through the f6 option and select download, all I get is a temporary file in my downloads folder.

Files are automatically placed in whatever folder you have set as your downloads folder in your browser. F6 just takes you to the downloads payne where you can 8view* your files – f6 doesn’t actually do anything, per se, just places your focus on the downloads area.

Are you looking to either see what folder your downloads are going to in-browser? Do you want to change it? Do you want a prompt, or no prompt?

All this is stuff you configure in settings of your browser of choice. Of course there are default settings – I cannot remember what those are as I am always fiddling with stuff. Right now Chrome just downloads when I activate a download link or button; no prompt or anything. I think I have Firefox set to be a bit more “prompty”. Often though what I’ll do in either is open the context menu for a link, press k, and enter in a filename from  there when the usual ‘save as” dialogue box pops up.  You can enter a full path there too, so there’s never any doubt or question as to where your files are going.

No offense, but I don't think very many people are using IE any more. Whether you have to go to the downloads bar with F6 or, as in IE, press Alt + N seems to be somewhat the same to me except it's a different key stroke.

In any case, you can always go into Google Chrome or Edge settings, go to the "Downloads" category and tell the browser not to ask where to save a file, once you do it will simply download to the location you specified, by default that should be the Downloads folder. Below is a copy of what this looks like:

 

Downloads

Location

C:\Users\Your Profile\Downloads

Change button

Ask me what to do with each download

Always ask me if I want to save a file or open it without saving, checked

 

I have this checked because I often want to save files I download to different folders, but as I said, if you uncheck it you should no longer have to do anything, whatever file will simply download to the Downloads folder.

 

 

Best regards,

I’m being a bit slow here, Brenda, so forgive me.

I belong to a Rock Choir and our parts are shared via their website. So, I find the audio file I need to download, hit the download link and at that point I have no choice but to hit f6 and keep tabbing until I am offered the option of save or open. By default the download goes to my download folder where I can find it and then save it to wherever I choose.

Hello,

 

I am not sure this will answer your question or meet your needs but this is what I do.  I rarely use F6 to go to the download page.  I simply use windows E for file explorer and then do first letter navigation to get to the download page.  Then I open the file that was downloaded and either read it or save it.  While I am sure there are many ways to work efficiently with the download bar (F6) I find this method effective for me and not frustrating.  I must admit that I found Internet Explorer easier to use because it gave you an audio cue to hit alt N and then you could simply tab to open or save and then arrow down to complete your necessary actions.

Hope this helps some and thanks to everyone on this list for all of the tips and instructions which are constantly being listed.  I learn something new every day.

Depending on your computer model, you should be able to use function key plus escape to toggle your function keys back to their primary functions. Then jaws key plus F 12 should start working again without having to do acrobats trying to press jobs key plus F 12+ function. LOL.

Thank you much for these instructions;

However,

I noticed something,

When creating the built-in table 1,

It only goes three headings deep;

My document has some headings that are 4 or 5 levels deep;

3-5(a)(1)(A)

For example.

 

How do I get the table of contents to recognize headings deeper than level 3?

 

Please advise as you like.

Hello, I’m sorry for not getting back to you so soon guys

Well, inserting a table content is quite easy indeed. After you have added all the headings you want,

Go to the first page of the document, you can insert a page break if you have already written something onto that page. I always

Do it just to be sure that my table of contents  always will be on the first page when I push control plus home. Anyway, when you’re in the first page of the document, press alt to focus the cursor on the upper ribbons, then arrow right or left to references, and press space bar to open this tab. By default, you will be on the option called table of contents, so press space bar again and using down arrow choose automatic table, then hit enter, and your table  should be inserted.

Leo,

Is that done with the Word feature for creating a Table of Contents?  I havent’ used that in decades, but could look at it.

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!

Just wanted to report back that I’m loving this quick way of adding headings to Word documents.  I took the time to create my own way I want the fonts to appear or each of them and now I’m finding using for this in other documents.  Such a great way to quickly jump around in larger documents.

Press CTRL alt and whatever number you want. For example, 1 for heading 1 text and 2 for heading 2 text. You can press the above hotkey either before or after typing your text. Just know that after you type text you want in heading xxx, you have to of course select it before pressing above hotkey.

Hi,

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.

After I determined my download folder, I navigated to it with File Explorer, and while it was selected, but not opened, I right click or use shift+f10 and select create shortcut.
Then copy that shortcut to my desktop and I can jump to that folder any old time.

All this is stuff you configure in settings of your browser of choice. Of course there are default settings – I cannot remember what those are as I am always fiddling with stuff. Right now Chrome just downloads when I activate a download link or button; no prompt or anything. I think I have Firefox set to be a bit more “prompty”.

What browser are you using?

If it is IE, hold the alt key with n and tab to open or save.

Then repeat above steps.

The only change is, open folder.

Tab to open folder and press enter

The file should be in your downloads.

Job done.

I’m being a bit slow here, Brenda, so forgive me.

I belong to a Rock Choir and our parts are shared via their website. So, I find the audio file I need to download, hit the download link and at that point I have no choice but to hit f6 and keep tabbing until I am offered the option of save or open. By default the download goes to my download folder where I can find it and then save it to wherever I choose.

I am unsure how this would work using your method.

Hello,

 

I am not sure this will answer your question or meet your needs but this is what I do.  I rarely use F6 to go to the download page.  I simply use windows E for file explorer and then do first letter navigation to get to the download page.  Then I open the file that was downloaded and either read it or save it.  While I am sure there are many ways to work efficiently with the download bar (F6) I find this method effective for me and not frustrating.  I must admit that I found Internet Explorer easier to use because it gave you an audio cue to hit alt N and then you could simply tab to open or save and then arrow down to complete your necessary actions.

Hope this helps some and thanks to everyone on this list for all of the tips and instructions which are constantly being listed.  I learn something new every day.
