Hello,
The link that I want the shortcut key to go to is on the webpage itself and
not something I can go to externally.
The big thing is I want to be able to hot key to find if I got it right or
wrong. For everything the page looks the same.
If you get the problem wrong it will say

Sorry! You are wrong

(Link) try again
or

(link) try next one


When you get the problem right you have:

Yeah! That's right

(link) try next one


The page sometimes has a donate button at the top, but most of the time not.
What's ctrl K do? Also does hotspot clicker allow short cut keys?
What would be ideal is if I could set up a sound trigger to play when I get
it right or wrong so I can know what hot key to press. I like to retry my
missed problems.
Thank you,

Brandon Keith Biggs

There's something called "Hot Spot Clicker" that may solve all these issues.
Try Googling it. It's designed by Jim Snowbarger and used extensively by
blind users of audio production software to give them access.

We have just "upgraded" to a new version of a Web application. This
"upgrade" is definitely an accessibility step backwards in that there are
some things (they aren't really links, buttons, graphics, forms, or anything
else that JAWS recognizes) that are important, but almost entirely
inaccessible.
The virtual cursor just skips over them; however, with the mouse search or
JAWS search command, I can get the mouse to "find" the key text. Then, I
can "left click" with the mouse simulation key.
Now, I think the next step will be to create this shortcut key you are
talking about. It seems like the same problem.
I wish JAWS had a macro facility, but I'm almost positive that all of the
keystrokes you are describing (and that I am describing) can be simulated
with a script. Furthermore, I know one can associate a script with a
keystroke -- say control plus windows plus M.
I've done this before, but it has been a long time. Nevertheless, I am
going to try and report my success/failure in the hopes I'll learn (or
remember) something and that at least one other person may benefit too.
From what I recall, the most difficult part of the script was to pass
through ordinary text, e.g., the text in the mouse search string.
Some on this list are proficient script writers, and they may tell me I'm on
a fool's errand. If so, I'll still learn something. So, comment is
invited.

Hello,
Is there a way to create a hot key through Jaws that will activate a link on

webpage so much that it's becoming a major waste of time to hit 2 or 3
buttons when with a hot key I could just hit one.
I use:

all the time and in particular, the link to find if you got the problem
right takes lots of time to find after you've clicked the submit button with

JAWS and Adobe digital editions

Londa Peterson <lpeterson@...>
 

Hi All,



My local public library provides access to ebooks using Overdrive. I know
the audio will work, but what about the Adobe digital editions books. I've
read a couple of articles that say that JAWS will work with them, but what
do you other users' think? Is their a special version of the software that
I need? Thanks.

Re: Creating Shortcut Keys with Jaws?

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

That works; however, the Web application is designed such that there are about 10 to 15 links/buttons/graphics of interest. So, even when bookmarked, there are still several presses of "k" to get to the right control.
The bookmarks are also, for me at least, a little unpredictable.
I'm definitely going to check out the Hotspot Clicker. Window Bridge used to have that function built in, and I backdoor rigged to get Window-Eyes to do the same thing, but GW Micro didn't support it and actively discouraged it.

This message will likely stirr up a lot of hate mail but I felt obligated to
thank you for your mature and technically useful response. If all messages
were as positive and helpful as your description of NVDA the list would be
much less cluttered. I'm not supporting the complaining and bitching that
happens on this list but frequently, one inappropriate post often generates
a plethora of like-minded rants.

Subject: RE: Karen -- Your Alternative Solution

I'm not Karen, but I am someone who uses NVDA as my primary screen reader,
with JFW held in reserve for those situations where NVDA won't work, or at
least I haven't figured out how to make it work. I'm not going to take the
apparent position of Karen, as I use both and couldn't really advise a
serious or business user to kick the shark habit. In fact, this
conversation stuck out at me and I don't know the history, but for what it's
worth, here are my experiences.

NVDA is a fabulous everyday screen reader. It's agile, lightweight and more
responsive in most environments than JFW in my experience. When it works,
it works quite nicely, and it works most of the time. Its command structure
is much simpler than JFW or WE which both makes it easier to learn, and
indicates some of its limitations.

I love the object navigation mode that works, as I understand it, rather
like VoiceOver on the mac, in that you can interact with system and
application objects both as objects and with the text in each object. This
allows me for instance to move focus very easily to the html-like elements
in the Carbonite user interface, which I haven't been able to get to in JFW,
then set focus there and interact with the controls smoothly. This mode
gives access in some situations where JFW can't find a hook to interact
with.

NVDA's portable mode is even easier to use than JFW's since there is no
video intercept to install. It's rather trivial to put it on a thumb drive
and have instant access to any computer you plug it into. This promise is
almost, but not quite realized by JFW. I can see this being a major feature
in a computing center environment.

Alas, not all is love and kisses in the NVDA world if you are used to JFW.
There are some things missing. There is no skimming or summarizing feature.
There is no way to set up row and column headers in Excel to read
automatically. There is to my knowledge almost no access to Microsoft
Access, and I believe PowerPoint access is much better in JFW.
Spell-checking is frustratingly hard in NVDA, in fact you don't really get
access to the dialog in any useful way. Outlook works well enough, except
the suggestions for addresses don't read automatically and calendar access
is a lot more primitive.

I miss being able to advance during a say all by hitting a key to move to
the next say-all element. This is a small thing, but makes pages like
Facebook less useful. I also miss JFW's ability to filter out repeated
content on successive web pages.

In short, while JFW has its quirks and in fact as I said for everyday use I
use NVDA, which among other things I find easier for programming with, I
would not recommend flying solo with it in a business environment. I
certainly can't do everything I need to do yet. I say yet, because it looks
like there is a growing body of plug-ins for NVDA (which function something
like JFW scripts) which are starting to add functionality that didn't exist
before. It may be that the user community will yet provide missing
functionality and make it an even more robust competitor. FS and GW Micro
should be careful as it is already capable of moving many users away from
the upgrades. I haven't bought my 13 upgrade at this point. I fancy I will
eventually, but for now a combination of financial circumstances and a
workable alternative have made this less urgent.

And hey, memory is cheap and hard drive goes forever, so have both if you
don't mind the cognitive task switching that goes on when you change
readers.

Re: Accessible Peachtree Accounting is Ready Now

Dave...
 

Gary,

Yes, last year (or was it two years ago) I did talk to them for over a half
hour to describe the problems I was having with that version. The next year,
it was decidedly better, but we're still not there -- as you attest. And
yes, I also get stuck in that "bookmark" section all the time. It really
grabs the focus.

Still I wish I could browse through the forms, as well as using the wizards.

Dave,
Yes, I like having all of my tax data on my own system and don't want to be
dependent on the Net while I'm doing my taxes. I sometimes got stuck in an
area near the top of the screen while in TaxAct, but I learned that Escape
would get me out of the area and back where I needed to be.

As I said, TaxAct is much better than it was when it was dependent on
scripts. Did you give the TaxAct any feedback on the accessibility problems
you encountered with their software?

Gary,

So you're paying the small amount to download the Tax Acts and install on
your computer, and not the version that runs on the web?

That's what I do, and yes, it's sort of accessible with JAWS, but takes a
lot of extra routing home and tabbing to keep focus during the Q&A wizard,
and again in the forms mode, it's really bad.

I think you misunderstood which version I used. I used the downloaded
version of TaxAct that I installed on my computer. I have been using
TaxAct
for around 12 years. Although access is not perfect, it is much better
than
it has ever been. I must admit that my tax situation is not as

as yours, for which I am grateful.

Gary,

I use the installed version that I purchase each year, rather than the
on-line version. That's likely why.

Dave,
I used the downloaded version of TaxAct this year, and I don't recall
having
any particular problems with it. It pretty much acted like a series of
web
pages. Maybe I just ignored those focus issues, since a lot of the web
is
just as bad these days.

Of course, some of my happiness with the program may be due to the fact
that
I no longer need to modify the old scripts each year. They once used all
of
those customized controls and graphics that were tied to messages in the
script files, and I had to change these messages to match the year I was
working on. Using TaxAct is a picnic now compared to what it used to be.

Nice! Now if someone could only write scripts for Tax Acts I'd be a very
happy taxpayer. And it wouldn't take much, because it works a bit out of
the
box, but needs to have better focus on the screens and forms. Hint,
hint.

Re: Creating Shortcut Keys with Jaws?

you will need to use the move function to move the mouse to a location on the screen provided that the location to click on doesn't change from one access of the page to another.


Legend has it that on Monday 4/23/2012 01:37 AM, Marquette, Ed said:

We have just "upgraded" to a new version of a Web application. This "upgrade" is definitely an accessibility step backwards in that there are some things (they aren't really links, buttons, graphics, forms, or anything else that JAWS recognizes) that are important, but almost entirely inaccessible.
The virtual cursor just skips over them; however, with the mouse search or JAWS search command, I can get the mouse to "find" the key text. Then, I can "left click" with the mouse simulation key.
Now, I think the next step will be to create this shortcut key you are talking about. It seems like the same problem.
I wish JAWS had a macro facility, but I'm almost positive that all of the keystrokes you are describing (and that I am describing) can be simulated with a script. Furthermore, I know one can associate a script with a keystroke -- say control plus windows plus M.
I've done this before, but it has been a long time. Nevertheless, I am going to try and report my success/failure in the hopes I'll learn (or remember) something and that at least one other person may benefit too.
From what I recall, the most difficult part of the script was to pass through ordinary text, e.g., the text in the mouse search string.
Some on this list are proficient script writers, and they may tell me I'm on a fool's errand. If so, I'll still learn something. So, comment is invited.

Subject: RE: Karen -- Your Alternative Solution

I'm not Karen, but I am someone who uses NVDA as my primary screen reader,
with JFW held in reserve for those situations where NVDA won't work, or at
least I haven't figured out how to make it work. I'm not going to take the
apparent position of Karen, as I use both and couldn't really advise a
serious or business user to kick the shark habit. In fact, this
conversation stuck out at me and I don't know the history, but for what it's
worth, here are my experiences.

NVDA is a fabulous everyday screen reader. It's agile, lightweight and more
responsive in most environments than JFW in my experience. When it works,
it works quite nicely, and it works most of the time. Its command structure
is much simpler than JFW or WE which both makes it easier to learn, and
indicates some of its limitations.

I love the object navigation mode that works, as I understand it, rather
like VoiceOver on the mac, in that you can interact with system and
application objects both as objects and with the text in each object. This
allows me for instance to move focus very easily to the html-like elements
in the Carbonite user interface, which I haven't been able to get to in JFW,
then set focus there and interact with the controls smoothly. This mode
gives access in some situations where JFW can't find a hook to interact
with.

NVDA's portable mode is even easier to use than JFW's since there is no
video intercept to install. It's rather trivial to put it on a thumb drive
and have instant access to any computer you plug it into. This promise is
almost, but not quite realized by JFW. I can see this being a major feature
in a computing center environment.

Alas, not all is love and kisses in the NVDA world if you are used to JFW.
There are some things missing. There is no skimming or summarizing feature.
There is no way to set up row and column headers in Excel to read
automatically. There is to my knowledge almost no access to Microsoft
Access, and I believe PowerPoint access is much better in JFW.
Spell-checking is frustratingly hard in NVDA, in fact you don't really get
access to the dialog in any useful way. Outlook works well enough, except
the suggestions for addresses don't read automatically and calendar access
is a lot more primitive.

I miss being able to advance during a say all by hitting a key to move to
the next say-all element. This is a small thing, but makes pages like
Facebook less useful. I also miss JFW's ability to filter out repeated
content on successive web pages.

In short, while JFW has its quirks and in fact as I said for everyday use I
use NVDA, which among other things I find easier for programming with, I
would not recommend flying solo with it in a business environment. I
certainly can't do everything I need to do yet. I say yet, because it looks
like there is a growing body of plug-ins for NVDA (which function something
like JFW scripts) which are starting to add functionality that didn't exist
before. It may be that the user community will yet provide missing
functionality and make it an even more robust competitor. FS and GW Micro
should be careful as it is already capable of moving many users away from
the upgrades. I haven't bought my 13 upgrade at this point. I fancy I will
eventually, but for now a combination of financial circumstances and a
workable alternative have made this less urgent.

And hey, memory is cheap and hard drive goes forever, so have both if you
don't mind the cognitive task switching that goes on when you change
readers.

Re: Accessible Peachtree Accounting is Ready Now

Gary King
 

Dave,
Yes, I like having all of my tax data on my own system and don't want to be dependent on the Net while I'm doing my taxes. I sometimes got stuck in an area near the top of the screen while in TaxAct, but I learned that Escape would get me out of the area and back where I needed to be.

As I said, TaxAct is much better than it was when it was dependent on scripts. Did you give the TaxAct any feedback on the accessibility problems you encountered with their software?

Gary,

So you're paying the small amount to download the Tax Acts and install on
your computer, and not the version that runs on the web?

That's what I do, and yes, it's sort of accessible with JAWS, but takes a
lot of extra routing home and tabbing to keep focus during the Q&A wizard,
and again in the forms mode, it's really bad.

I think you misunderstood which version I used. I used the downloaded

Gary,

I use the installed version that I purchase each year, rather than the
on-line version. That's likely why.

Dave,
I used the downloaded version of TaxAct this year, and I don't recall
having
any particular problems with it. It pretty much acted like a series of
web
pages. Maybe I just ignored those focus issues, since a lot of the web is
just as bad these days.

Of course, some of my happiness with the program may be due to the fact
that
I no longer need to modify the old scripts each year. They once used all
of
those customized controls and graphics that were tied to messages in the
script files, and I had to change these messages to match the year I was
working on. Using TaxAct is a picnic now compared to what it used to be.

Nice! Now if someone could only write scripts for Tax Acts I'd be a very
happy taxpayer. And it wouldn't take much, because it works a bit out of
the
box, but needs to have better focus on the screens and forms. Hint, hint.

Re: Accessible Peachtree Accounting is Ready Now

Gary,

So you're paying the small amount to download the Tax Acts and install on
your computer, and not the version that runs on the web?

That's what I do, and yes, it's sort of accessible with JAWS, but takes a
lot of extra routing home and tabbing to keep focus during the Q&A wizard,
and again in the forms mode, it's really bad.

Dave,
I think you misunderstood which version I used. I used the downloaded
version of TaxAct that I installed on my computer. I have been using TaxAct
for around 12 years. Although access is not perfect, it is much better than
it has ever been. I must admit that my tax situation is not as complicated
as yours, for which I am grateful.
