locked Win10 Forum is now WinAccess forum (permission granted from owner, respond privately please)

 

Hello all,

The following message received owner’s permission (please talk to me privately if you have questions or comments):
In 2015, a forum was set up to discuss then newly released Windows 10 with various screen readers, including JAWS. The Win10 Forum for Screen Reader Users, commonly called the Win10 forum, served as a venue for discussing Windows development and releases with screen readers, Windows Insider Program through a dedicated subgroup, and to serve as a specialized support forum for using screen readers with Windows 10 ecosystem devices and apps such as Windows 10 mobile (no longer supported), universal apps, and other topics.

Then on June 24, 2021, Microsoft announced Windows 11, promising user interface tweaks and improved security. Since the first Widows 11 Insider Preview was released the following week, screen reader users have been testing Windows 11, including reporting feedback to Microsoft. This also translated to Win10 Forum accepting Windows 11 topics, which led to a discussion about renaming the forum, culminating in a poll last week that asked which name the forum should be called from now on.

Based on poll results, Win10 Forum for Screen Reader Users was renamed to Windows Access with Screen Readers, or WinAccess for short. Just like Win10 forum era, WinAccess forum serves as a venue for users and developers of diverse screen readers to discuss modern Windows ecosystem and apps from screen reading technology perspective, now expanded to cover Windows 11 and future releases. The dedicated subgroup for Windows Insiders is also present, and Widows 10/11 cumulative update announcements will be a regular feature of the newly renamed forum.

Forum address: https://winaccess.groups.io/g/winaccess

Subscription address: winaccess+subscribe@winaccess.groups.io

Note: if you are already a member of the former Win10 Forum, you don’t have to subscribe again – membership continues as all that was done was renaming the forum itself with membership and messages intact.

Again if you have any questions or comments about WinAccess forum, please talk to me privately (not here). Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

When I hit F2 to edit a formula or cell in Excel, everything slows down. It takes a second to read a character when pressing left or right arrow. This is making editing in Excel extremely frustrating. I am using the latest version of JAWS and office 365 downloaded to my computer.

Does anyone have any suggestion on an Excel setting or JAWS setting I should change?

Hi, again, Dave. I just checked, and what I get is as follows, In step 10, I have an OK button. If I press that, I tab again, and in step 11, as you said, there is an Apply button. If I press that, I can TAB, and there is another OK button. If I press that, I have no need to close Settings Center with ALT plus F4. So, in actuality I left out a step after step 11 and there could be a step 12. I don't like using ALT plus F4 to close windows in recent years, as it sometimes leads to behaviors other than what I expect, such as windows not closing, or even the closing of more than one window. I suspect that you are correct, though, in saying that after step 10, you can press ALT plus F4 and close the window. What I do, Dave is, when I am outlining a procedure, I am actually performing the operation on a second computer, while I am writing down the steps on the first computer. I don't know how I missed the Apply button, but I did. Thanks for the heads up.

Hi, Albert and Richard. JAWS does not substitute the words block quote for the html code by mistake. This is an indication that a block quote is being read. A block quote is a section of text that is being quoted, and is indented about three spaces both on the left and on the right side of the text. If you want this turned off, you can do the following,

 

1. Open Outlook.

2. Press JAWS key plus the number six on the numbers row, to open JAWS Settings Center.

3. Arrow down to Web/Html/Pdf's closed, and press Right Arrow to open.

4. Arrow down to Reading, closed, and press Right Arrow to open.

5. Arrow down, and check which verbocity level is set for your configuration of Outlook. It will say either High, Medium, or Low.

6. Once you have found which verbocity level applies to your configuration of Outlook, proceed to step 7.

7. Arrow down to Configure Web Verbocity Levels, closed, and press Right Arrow to open.

8. Find the verbocity level that you need to change. It will be the one (High, Medium, or Low) from above, and press the SPACE BAR to open the configuration menu.

9. Find Block Quotation (it should be at or near the top of the list), and if it is checked, uncheck it.

10. TAB to the OK button, and press SPACE.

11. TAB to the second OK button and press SPACE.

 

Now that the Block Quote indication is turned off, you will not hear the words Block Quote when traversing a block quote. Note, however, that this is an indication of how text is formatted, and if you wish to know if you are on a block quote when this indicator is turned off, you will need to look at the beginning of a line and check if there are more spaces than usual to know if you are reading a block quote.

To me, that is on the sender of the email.  If it is a true Blockquote, they should say something in their message about the source, or whatever.

When I ran into this yesterday, someone just forwarded an email and it came as a blockquote but it was completely obvious this was a forward because the email had the FW: and the person wrote no personal comments so the full heading of the original email was there, so the extraneous verbiage about it being a blockquote was pointless.

 

But I understand your point and it is a very good one.

Thanks Bill,

What confused me about this setting is that the word “blockquote” appears in the text instead of just speaking that this is a blockquote, so if you copy the body of the email, you get the words blockquote and Blockquote end, and frankly, since I know what a blockquote is, and don’t really care to hear it announced, turning it off is an excellent tip, thank you for that.

Perhaps in a Word document, I might care about formatting like that, but not in an email.  But that is my personal preference and I’m stuck with it. 😊

I order a fair bit from Amazon since I live in a very small town where I often can't find the same selection as you get in the big city and I have a personal Amazon account with a prime membership as well as an Amazon business account with Amazon Business Prime and except in a few cases where the item comes from a seller outside of Canada and it is not veryt expensive 5% GST and 7% PST (I live in British Columbia) are always applied to every purchase.

Well, I had no idea sales tax was applied to the SMA in the United States.  In Canada if you can prove you have a vision problem, registered with the CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) you are tax exempt from the purchase of the SMA.  As for Amazon, although not related, I have a prime membership which pretty much makes paying taxes on purchases a non issue.  No taxes are paid or shipping for that matter unless I don’t listen to the prompt of shipping costs.  There are times where the shipping cost is more then the actual item.

Mario,

The application of sales tax is a function of where you reside and your
state’s laws regarding whether sales tax applies to computer software
and its various forms. If your state applies sales tax to software and
Freedom Scientific has a physical presence in your state, Freedom
Scientific is obligated to collect sales tax and remit it to the state.
The sales tax should be calculated on the discounted price of the
software or SMA.

Like other tax laws, application of sales tax is an ever changing
situation. So, just because it did not apply in the past, doesn’t mean
it won’t in the future.

Thanks Bill,

What confused me about this setting is that the word “blockquote” appears in the text instead of just speaking that this is a blockquote, so if you copy the body of the email, you get the words blockquote and Blockquote end, and frankly, since I know what a blockquote is, and don’t really care to hear it announced, turning it off is an excellent tip, thank you for that.

Perhaps in a Word document, I might care about formatting like that, but not in an email.  But that is my personal preference and I’m stuck with it. 😊

 

Thanks,

Hi, Albert and Richard. JAWS does not substitute the words block quote for the html code by mistake. This is an indication that a block quote is being read. A block quote is a section of text that is being quoted, and is indented about three spaces both on the left and on the right side of the text. If you want this turned off, you can do the following,

 

1. Open Outlook.

2. Press JAWS key plus the number six on the numbers row, to open JAWS Settings Center.

3. Arrow down to Web/Html/Pdf's closed, and press Right Arrow to open.

4. Arrow down to Reading, closed, and press Right Arrow to open.

5. Arrow down, and check which verbocity level is set for your configuration of Outlook. It will say either High, Medium, or Low.

6. Once you have found which verbocity level applies to your configuration of Outlook, proceed to step 7.

7. Arrow down to Configure Web Verbocity Levels, closed, and press Right Arrow to open.

8. Find the verbocity level that you need to change. It will be the one (High, Medium, or Low) from above, and press the SPACE BAR to open the configuration menu.

9. Find Block Quotation (it should be at or near the top of the list), and if it is checked, uncheck it.

10. TAB to the OK button, and press SPACE.

11. TAB to the second OK button and press SPACE.

 

Now that the Block Quote indication is turned off, you will not hear the words Block Quote when traversing a block quote. Note, however, that this is an indication of how text is formatted, and if you wish to know if you are on a block quote when this indicator is turned off, you will need to look at the beginning of a line and check if there are more spaces than usual to know if you are reading a block quote.

First, make sure the window is Maximized. 

Jaws substitutes the html code for a blockquote, with the words for some very confusing reason.

Are you reading line by line, or with Say All?

I have the same setup and have not experienced the cut off words.

Also, make sure there isn't another program open with a dialog that could be overlapping somehow.

Those are my best guesses.

Hi, again, Dave. I just checked, and what I get is as follows, In step 10, I have an OK button. If I press that, I tab again, and in step 11, as you said, there is an Apply button. If I press that, I can TAB, and there is another OK button. If I press that, I have no need to close Settings Center with ALT plus F4. So, in actuality I left out a step after step 11 and there could be a step 12. I don't like using ALT plus F4 to close windows in recent years, as it sometimes leads to behaviors other than what I expect, such as windows not closing, or even the closing of more than one window. I suspect that you are correct, though, in saying that after step 10, you can press ALT plus F4 and close the window. What I do, Dave is, when I am outlining a procedure, I am actually performing the operation on a second computer, while I am writing down the steps on the first computer. I don't know how I missed the Apply button, but I did. Thanks for the heads up.

Hi, Dave. In steps 10 and 11, for me, in step 10, if I tab, I get an OK button, not an Apply button. In step 11, if I tab to the OK button, and press Space or Enter, it automatically closes Settings Center, so there is no need to use ALT plus F4.

I am not sure what you are ordering because as I said, apart from the odd item which comes from a seller in the States GST and PST always apply to anything I order unless it is, for some reason, tax exempt like maybe some food staples and so on.

And your message definitely very much sounded like you were saying a prime membership would get you items tax-free, you wrote:

 

I have a prime membership which pretty much makes paying taxes on purchases a non issue.  No taxes are paid or shipping for that matter

 

The shipping part of course is clear and is outlined exactly on the Amazon Canada page where all the benefits are explained, but there is nothing which indicates that a prime membership " makes paying taxes on purchases a non issue":

Sieghard , I was not implying or meaning to imply that a Amazon prime membership allowed you not to pay taxes.  Jus, I rarely have had to pay provincial or HST on any products I’ve purchased from Amazon. When ones purchases exceed $100 frequently, 12% taxes is $12 in taxes. That adds up.

Hi David,

 

I'm sorry, but what gives you the idea that an Amazon Prime membership means Amazon doesn't have to charge you taxes? I order a fair bit from Amazon since I live in a very small town where I often can't find the same selection as you get in the big city and I have a personal Amazon account with a prime membership as well as an Amazon business account with Amazon Business Prime and except in a few cases where the item comes from a seller outside of Canada and it is not veryt expensive 5% GST and 7% PST (I live in British Columbia) are always applied to every purchase.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Well, I had no idea sales tax was applied to the SMA in the United States.  In Canada if you can prove you have a vision problem, registered with the CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) you are tax exempt from the purchase of the SMA.  As for Amazon, although not related, I have a prime membership which pretty much makes paying taxes on purchases a non issue.  No taxes are paid or shipping for that matter unless I don’t listen to the prompt of shipping costs.  There are times where the shipping cost is more then the actual item.

I believe they are physically located in Florida. However, this does not matter. My zipcode is in Sacramento therefore I pay sales tax there. Amazon is out of Seattle I think but again I have to pay sales tax according to my zipcode. The state of Oregon has no sales tax so no taxes on purchased items unless they have a law for Internet purchased products.  

 

Every country has an identity, history, custom, and culture. It’s a unique landscape in determining how its people Live, work, and play.

maybe I'm not getting it, but the issue for me is FS doesn't have a
physical presence in New York, so why am I being charged sales tax?

Mario,

The application of sales tax is a function of where you reside and your
state’s laws regarding whether sales tax applies to computer software
and its various forms. If your state applies sales tax to software and
Freedom Scientific has a physical presence in your state, Freedom
Scientific is obligated to collect sales tax and remit it to the state.
The sales tax should be calculated on the discounted price of the
software or SMA.

Like other tax laws, application of sales tax is an ever changing
situation. So, just because it did not apply in the past, doesn’t mean
it won’t in the future.

Did you order online? I had to call in and they are refunding me the
over charge.

HTH.

not sure if I should complain, but before purchasing mine and applying

the 20% discount, there was sales tax added which now reduces the value

of the discount to about 12%. in previous years when I upgraded the SMA,

I never had to pay a sales tax. what should I do, let it slide or

contact Erik?

Hi Loy,

I updated my SMA to 2023 & 2024 over the weekend and today I got a

message to update my authorization when J2021 started.  I got this

authorization update message for each computer, so you'll probably

getting the same message pretty soon.

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

After purchasing a SMA, how do I get it to show  the new amount of

upgrades I have.
