IN the somewhat distant past I gather, there were third party scripts for iTunes and Jaws.

BlindTunes and jTunes, but they seem to be no more.  At least,   the links referenced from the Freedom Scientific page about them are not valid.

 

So, trying NVDA or Narrator is the best next option when dealing with the craziness of itunes.

Also it seems that NVDA navigates more smoothly in iTunes if compared with JAWS. I tried backing up my iPhone using JAWS on iTunes and it is not as smooth tabbing around the menu compared to if using NVDA.

Hi Jason,

 

I tried to send you a message directly, but for some reason it came back as undeliverable. I am pasting it below, sorry to the group for the more personal nature of this message, Jason please feel free to reply directly using sieghard@...

 

Hello Jason,

 

I don't really have your answer other than saying Teams must have a dial pad button somewhere which would be similar to Skype and other such apps which would then allow you to enter numbers during a call.

Anyways, I am a bit curious as to your statement regarding making and receiving calls. You say it's not difficult and I assume you use the computer and a headset to do so?

I am currently looking at possibly a different phone service for my small retail store and I know of one person here, a building contractor who did the renovation on my new store last year, who is also using Teams.

Right now I use a hosted cloud system which is done through a local guy here and it uses VoIP desk phones and on my iPhone I use an app called 3CX for it. I would be interested to know how, for example, it works if you are working on the computer, say you are in Outlook or maybe online and then a call comes in, do you simply answer using a button on the headset or is there a keyboard shortcut, does a window pop up with the call or does it all stay in the background?

 

 

Take care,

Sieghard

Shankar.C <shankar.c@...>
 

Suggestion:

Instead turning off the autofill on the chrome, just start typing the value on the field. When the focus in the field, the filled text will be still selected. This is the default behaviour of the autofill function.

But, if you still want to turn off the autofill, follow the below steps.

  1. Open the settings on the chrome.
  2. Click on search and type the turm autofill.
  3. Wait for the results to be loaded.
  4. By pressing tab key now, you can see few of the links like, passwords, payment methods, and addresses and more.
  5. For instance, if you want to turnoff the address to be filled, just turn off the button which says “ Save and fill addresses Toggle button”

Hope it helps.

The field already has text in it. I can move up and down and the value changes. The value is not even what I want. I can type over it. I just wonder why this suddenly started and is there a way to turn it off in Google Chrome?

soner
 

Rahul, this is  possible, assuming that you already have the contact info in your gmail address book, write part of the mail address, then tab to "subject field", and then tab back to "to" field, and navigate  by up and down arrows, you will see your contact added.
indeed FS should streamline it better, because possibly Gmail suggests names in basic view but JFW does not probably recognise it well.

He seems to think the world will end if he can't run Windows 11. You are of course entirely correct, installing Windows 11 by some sort of hack is probably the worst thing you can do and there is absolutely no reason for it. I still hear of things like File Explorer being fairly sluggish with all screenreaders in Windows 11 and while I am also curious about Windows 11, I am in no particular hurry and have a feeling that once I do maybe install it on the one computer I currently own which says it can run it I will be underwhelmed and find that on a day-to-day bases it will make little difference.

Why would you want to install an unsupported operating system?  My understanding is that if you do, you may not get security updates.  I'd install the latest version of windows 10 and be content, even if you really want 11, you probably don't want it for the first six months, unless you like  using your computer for a door stop instead of a computer.  Leave the first little while to those with spare computers.

Richard, you are correct! Sorry guys, when I went to PBS video every single one I tried to look at said you had to be a member of passport. I’m wondering if the reason I was able to watch Muhammad Ali several weeks ago without getting that message was since it was being broadcast that very weak and hadn’t yet gone onto the list or something? Not sure but sorry I gave misinformation.

Well, all I know is I tried to watch the Ken Burns Baseball and it said I had to have a Passport account…

 

I believe the only way you get a passport account is by being a subscriber to PBS. 

I refuse to give them any money in my area because they still do not provide audio description on many things I know have audio description.

This Fall  they have improved, but not yet enough.

Richard, I watched the Mohammed Ali series he did  through the app with no PBS Passport subscription.

Wonder if what you say applies to only certain series?

They are there, but you have to have the PBS Passport which you get by donating on a regular basis.

And, I would hope they would include audio description.

Hi.



A firm has sent me a Google Docs spreadsheet. I'm told I need to click on the "Targets" tab. My sighted wife can find it, and the information I need is there, but I can't get to it with JAWS.



FYI, I'm using the Google browser. I have accessibility settings set to screenreader and braille on (although I don't use braille). I've also toggled the Excel commands on. I know the commands for moving from sheet to sheet, but they aren't doing anything.



Again, I can't even locate the "Targets" tab, never mind click on it.



Any ideas?
