It would appear as if you 2021 zoom commands, such as alt a for muting and unmuting don't work anymore. 

How do I get them to work again?

moderated Having Trouble Turning Fast Startup Off In Windows 10

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

I'm having trouble turning off fast startup on the Dell Lattitude E6540 laptop computer I just updated to Windows 10.

When I type control panel into the Windows search box, accessed by the windows key, I seem to get internet links and get put automatically into the Microsoft Edge browser, rather than actual control panel options.

I'm obviously doing something wrong.

Here are instructions posted a few days ago by Siegard Weitzel.

If Sieghard or someone can give me further guidance, I'd really appreciate the assistance.

Thank you!

Tom Behler

Turn Off Win10 Fast Startup

1. Open Control Panel then select Power Options. This is presuming that you’re using the classic “Small Icons” view in Control Panel. If not, navigate to the “View by” control and select “Small Icons,” then navigate to Power Options.
2. Activate the Choose what the power button does link on the left side of the dialog.
3. In the dialog just opened, activate Change settings that are currently unavailable link.
4. Scroll down to the Shutdown settings section.
5. Remove the check mark from the Turn on Fast Startup (Recommended) checkbox.
6. Select the Save Changes Button.

You need to press and release alt-escape key, unlike alt-tab where you hold down the alt key until you are in the window you want. It works on my regular computer as well, but I use alt-tab on my regular computer.

 

The reason I use alt-escape on my ElBraille is alt-tab will only cycle you between two windows, where alt-escape will move to all windows.

 

Best of luck with your issue.

Hi all,

When I alt+tab it just toggles me back and forth between the same 2 windows. If I want it to rotate through the open windows I have to use alt+shift+tab.  I seem to recall this feature was modified in an earlier version of JFW, but I can’t recall how to change it back.

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Out of curiosity I just signed up for Next Door and while there aren't that many people on there for my small community, there are some and I was able to read their posts, I was also able to start a new message and since I noticed one name of a person I knew I selected him and that worked fine.

I also went into the Help section under My Account and after I searched for "Accessibility" and this produced no results I selected the "Contact Us" option.

I was then presented with a form where I had to select a category, what my request was about, i.e. Feature request/improvement and then I could fill in my email, name, address, a subject and my message.

I was able to access the two combo boxes to select the topic and such without any issues, but I had to use Alt + Down arrow to open them and arrow through the choices since Enter did not work.

I just wrote that I am new and visually impaired using a screenreader and that in a recent discussion on a mailing list many people complained about the accessibility of the Next Door website and I then included maybe half a dozen messages from the thread where people were saying how they found accessibility lacking and that some left the platform.

As I said, so far I find no major issues, but then of course I haven't done much on the site. I would like to preface my next comment by saying I don't mean to insult anybody, but I do sometimes find that people say a site is not accessible when in fact it is and they just don't know how to leverage the functions of their screenreader to their fullest potential. That does not mean improvements shouldn't be made, but Jaws officially says that Alt _+ Down Arrow opens a combo box and while Enter may work on many, if a combo box only responds to Alt + Down Arrow and somebody doesn't know this it does not make said combo box or webpage inaccessible.

To add to this list of how to handle combo boxes, I’ve also found that pressing alt-down arrow without first pressing enter works on some. Then, after arrowing through the choices, instead of pressing enter, I need to press the PC cursor key twice to preserve my selection and escape out of the box. In such cases, enter sends me somewhere else on the page while failing to make my selection.

 

There’s no longer a single solution to these controls.

As I said, you should try Alt + Down arrow which sometimes works better for opening combo boxes. I deal with a few where if I use Enter and then arrow down it selects the item and then closes the combo box and if I want to select an item especially when there are many selections this makes it very tedious, but if I use Alt + Down arrow I can arrow down through all the options until I find the one I want and then I can select it by pressing enter.

 

Also, as I explained in my last email, there are some combo boxes where I can't do anything unless I turn off the virtual cursor, tab until I get to it which means you may have to tab a lot depending where on the page it is and then I can interact with it and turn on the virtual cursor again afterwards.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Am I the only one who has noticed that Next Door has become more and more inaccessible. I used to be able to go to the home page, find a link for posting a message, pick the category etc. Now none of the combo boxes work for the purposes of picking your category so it won’t go through. Going to the help section and filling out a contact form is the same thing; none of the combo boxes work to choose topics. Has anyone had any success with this, posting a message etc? Using win 10 and jaws 19. Judy & Libby

You need to press and release alt-escape key, unlike alt-tab where you hold down the alt key until you are in the window you want. It works on my regular computer as well, but I use alt-tab on my regular computer.

 

The reason I use alt-escape on my ElBraille is alt-tab will only cycle you between two windows, where alt-escape will move to all windows.

 

Best of luck with your issue.

I just tried it.

Yes, hit alt+escape, release, you are in the first window in the alt sequence.  Press alt+escape again and release, second window and so on.

Far more tedious than holding down alt and tapping the tab key; but if that doesn’t work for someone, alt+escape could be a tedious/workable option.

Are you holding down the Alt key when cycling through the windows? It is working for me on my Windows 10 system with JAWS 2022. Hold down alt and press tab repeatedly.

Hi all,

When I alt+tab it just toggles me back and forth between the same 2 windows. If I want it to rotate through the open windows I have to use alt+shift+tab.  I seem to recall this feature was modified in an earlier version of JFW, but I can’t recall how to change it back.

As an alternative, you can use alt-escape.  I use this on my ElBraille, as there is no way to hold down the alt key and tab repeatedly.  Every time you press alt-escape you move to the next window.

As I said, you should try Alt + Down arrow which sometimes works better for opening combo boxes. I deal with a few where if I use Enter and then arrow down it selects the item and then closes the combo box and if I want to select an item especially when there are many selections this makes it very tedious, but if I use Alt + Down arrow I can arrow down through all the options until I find the one I want and then I can select it by pressing enter.

 

Also, as I explained in my last email, there are some combo boxes where I can't do anything unless I turn off the virtual cursor, tab until I get to it which means you may have to tab a lot depending where on the page it is and then I can interact with it and turn on the virtual cursor again afterwards.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Have you tried it with the virtual cursor turned off? I used to have to deal with a combo box on my online banking where I had to select the account I wanted to pay business taxes from and that combo box was doing nothing whether I tried enter or Alt + Down Arrow, but when I turned off the virtual cursor and tabbed to it I could easily select the account I wanted, tab out of it, turn the virtual cursor back on and complete filling out the form.

Should it also work with the virtual cursor? Of course it should, but if it can be done without then it may not be ideal, but it is also not inaccessible, just required a different technique.

Because there is no way to contact them other than doing it online. I searched the web for any phone number and even went to get human.com, and they even said there is no phone number, no direct email, you have to fill out a contact form and pick a subject from a combo box that doesn’t work with jaws. And the fact that a few people on here already said they used to be able to do things on next door, as I also was able in the past, this is my conclusion. Their website now is totally inaccessible, nothing works unless you are just replying to someone else’s message. It’s a mess. If they cared, they would make sure it was accessible. This is an international social media platform…there is no excuse.
