Actually, insert+space bar, then Z, runs JAWS in a default mode of some sort. For a while it was the only way I could get into my bank's site. Once I got in, I did insert+spacebar then z again to get back to JAWS with my preferred settings. I had only change speed and perhaps punctuation, so nothing that should have interfered. However. Running JAWS with default settings worked.

There is sometimes a chrome.jsi file with things JAWS thinks I have changed. When I find it, I delete it because it makes things not work correctly.

Hi Ann & Judy,

Insert + spacebar, then Z, is not the keystroke you want. This keystroke is a toggle for running Jaws with its default settings and switching back to your personal settings.

The keystroke you want is, Insert + Z, this toggles the virtual cursor off / on.

Sometimes NVDA can see things JAWS cannot. I had to use it on the Chase Bank site for a couple of months before JAWS, or Chase, or something made it JAWS accessible again.

There are many variables here, do you use auto forms mode or not? Have you tried to type "e" or "f" to see if there is a form field where y ou can type in the code they sent? If so just type the code and press enter.
You can also try to turn off the virtual cursor and tab through the page to see if you get to the edit field for the code this way.
If all of this doesn't work I'd contact your bank and tell them that you can't access their site with a screenreader and they need to fix it.

Are you sure it is a link and not a form field?

Maybe you can get them to send the code to your phone. Then you get the code from the sms they send youa nd enter into a form field on the page that should appear after the login attempt.

This is how I work it with my bank anyway.

If you are unable to do anything else, then yeah, call the bank.

Sounds like you are doing things right
Have you use, JAWSKey+Z, before invoking

alt+control+m and alt+control+shift+a

What happens after using, Insert+Z, and then invoking the above?
You certainly have the other critical item, screen reader access on, taken care of.

I found a video by Freedom Scientific on accessing comments in google sheets. The two commands the speaker suggested for adding new comments and viewing the comment discussion thread aren't working for me. These are alt+control+m and alt+control+shift+a respectively. When I press these keystrokes, nothing happens. Screen reader support is enabled.

I use JAWS 2021, Chrome 91.0.124.

Hi Stew,

As long as your VPN provider of choice lets you see its relevant settings, then you can key them in manually into Windows.

This is a bit more work but it's no more complicated than setting up an email account manually, and the massive advantage is that you don’t need to care whether your VPN provider’s software is accessible or worry whether they might break it during an update.

Hi Dave,

Theoretically yes, and being able to stream things from other countries is my primary use case.

However, different broadcasters are more or less efficient about cracking down on VPN use. You may find yourself needing to try different in-country servers offered by your provider if one doesn’t work, so it's best to go with a provider with lots of servers in the country whose content you’re interested in accessing.

The BBC have become really annoying though. On mobile platforms at least, they now go off location services, making the VPN ineffective. I haven’t checked what they do on the PC.

Ed

Hi Dave,

Theoretically yes, and being able to stream things from other countries is my primary use case.

However, different broadcasters are more or less efficient about cracking down on VPN use. You may find yourself needing to try different in-country servers offered by your provider if one doesn’t work, so it's best to go with a provider with lots of servers in the country whose content you’re interested in accessing.

The BBC have become really annoying though. On mobile platforms at least, they now go off location services, making the VPN ineffective. I haven’t checked what they do on the PC.

Cheers,

Ed

Does it mean, If I set up a VPN, and I am outside the UK, I can connect to a server in the UK, and stream audio and video, from sights,which restrict broadcasts to people living in the UK?

Hi, Ed. This only configures the VPN native to Windows. It doesn't configure the third-party VPN that is inaccessible. Besides that, the VPN that is native to Windows doesn't unblock streams that are blocked from the user's country of network origin.

Hi Bill,

 

Press Windows key+i to bring up settings.

 

Press enter on Network and Internet from the list.

 

From the next list, press enter on VVPN.

 

Alternatively, just typing “VPN” in the search box that appears when you press the Windows key will probably get you there.

 

Cheers,

Hi Stew,

As long as your VPN provider of choice lets you see its relevant settings, then you can key them in manually into Windows.

This is a bit more work but it's no more complicated than setting up an email account manually, and the massive advantage is that you don’t need to care whether your VPN provider’s software is accessible or worry whether they might break it during an update.

Cheers,

Ed

As an express VPN user I can tell you unfortunately Netflix gets blocked often where I had to restart the movie or content  I’m viewing to continue.

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

Hi, Dave. Yes, some VPN's will allow you to stream sites that are restricted from your actual country of origin, but as far as I know, they have to be a premium VPN such as Express VPN.

moderated Accessing comments and edits in Google docs with JAWS

Rahul Bajaj
 

Hi everyone,

At my current workplace, I am required to collaborate a great deal
with my colleagues using Google docs. I am wondering if anyone has any
suggestions as to how comments and edits can be accessed with JAWS in
an efficient and seamless manner.

I found a video by Freedom Scientific on accessing comments in google
sheets. The two commands the speaker suggested for adding new comments
and viewing the comment discussion thread aren't working for me. These
are alt+control+m and alt+control+shift+a respectively. When I press
these keystrokes, nothing happens. Screen reader support is enabled.

I use JAWS 2021, Chrome 91.0.124.

Warmly,
Rahul
