Usually, when I try to access National Day Calendar I do not enter either http or https when I get to the address bar.  Microsoft Edge is my default browser.  When my Facebook page pops up I hit the Control+L keystroke to get to the address bar.  When it pops up I just enter nationaldaycalendar.com and then hit the Enter Key.

Definitely something screwy about that page.

But it shoudln’t matter if you don’t use https: anymore. As of a few years ago, browsers will autmoatically add the secure html property to any url. It’s just assumed and when you type in http://, which I often do as I enter in addresses manually, the “s” simply gets added and will show up in the address bar as soon as the site is loaded.

Hi, Rick. I encountered the same problems as did you when going to,

 

https://nationaldaycalendar.com

 

The page is extremely unresponsive to any screen reader, including Narrator. I had better luck when I removed the S from the https: link. Try loading the link below without the S, and wait until the page loads, and begins reading the links.

Dear Listers:

 

My favorite website today is https://nationaldaycalendar.com.  Until just a couple of weeks I used to go to this page every morning.  All of a sudden whenever I would go to this page I found myself unable to use it.  The page would load.  When the load was completed JAWS would read how many regions there were on the page and how many headings and then would start reading all of the links and all of the headings.  When I would hit the Control key to silence JAWS and then try to arrow to the link I wanted to activate the only link that would appear was a link called “adchoices.”  I contacted National Day Calendar via Facebook and they told me they were upgrading their site.  But even now after almost two weeks whenever I try to load this webpage JAWS will read off the names of the links, but when I silence it I cannot go to the link I want to.  I have tried using both my default browser, Microsoft Word and Google Chrome.  Sometimes I will just have the “adchoices,” link, and at other times JAWS will just say “home page,” after I silence it after it automatically starts reading all of the links.  I am using Windows 2010 and JAWS 2022.  Can either of you give me some advice as to how I can rectify this problem?  By the way, this only happens with National Day Calendar and not with any other webpage.

Maybe it shouldn't matter, but, for some reason, it does. When I loaded the url without the S, it loaded three times. When I did use the S, it wouldn't load at all. It said that Chrome and Edge were not responding.

moderated Outlook.com email account issue/question

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
About two months ago I created an Outlook.com email account because I was tired
of the email account that I have with our ISP (which is the account that I'm
sending this message from) either blocking messages or marking messages that
aren't junk as junk even though I've marked them as not junk so many times. I
hate worrying about whether or not I'll receive a message, which is why I
decided to create an Outlook.com account. Anyway, now for my issue/question,
with my Outlook.com account sometimes it'd let me send messages and other times
they wouldn't go through and then my account would get locked because they
thought I was doing something bad when I wasn't. The last time this happened I
got a message telling me to sign into my account, but I've been avoiding doing
this for fear that I'm just going to keep having the same issue which I really
don't want to continue to have to deal with. I've called the MS Disability
Answer Desk twice regarding this, and they've been able to unlock my account but
both times they haven't told me why this happens or if there's anything that I
can do to prevent this from happening in the future. So for anyone who has or
has had an Outlook.com account have you ever had this issue? If so, any idea
what I can do to prevent this from happening again? If no one else has had this
issue then what did I do wrong? If anyone else has ideas please share them also.
I really don't want to get rid of my account; and I really want to have all of
my emails going to one address as checking two inboxes is annoying. I hate
accessing mail on the web.
Using latest versions of Jaws, Office 365 and Windows 10. Really hope someone
can help me, any ideas/suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks Madison

Shut down jaws 2022 (if running) by hitting jaws+f4 followed by enter
if needed to confirm

Start jaws 2021 (I use win+r then type j "jaws2021" followed by
hitting the enter key).

Hit jaws+j

Go to options -> basics and hit the enter key

Hit alt+j to trigger the "automatically start jaws button"

Set the dialog controls to match your desired settings then hit the
enter key. (I suggest at least checking the "Start JAWS at the logon
screen" box and "Always" for "Start JAWS after logon for this user")

Hit the enter key

Hit alt+y if you get a UIA confirmation dialog

Hit the enter key and jaws 2021 should now run by default instead of jaws 2022

moderated Re: Bypassing certain keys in a specific application?

James Malone <james.malone93502@...>
 

Just catching up on this thread now.
@Adrian:
Yeah I think I'll definitely throw forward that suggestion for a
passthrough toggle, it'd be a neat idea. With that being said, there's
very few cases where I'd probably use it, but could potentially be an
easy way to get around the issues people sometimes have with Jaws
intercepting keys before the application. I also can't think of too
many cases where most people would need to use that either, but I
personally say that about a lot of Jaws features. 😂
@Nermin:
I was aware of the sleep thing, thanks for the suggestion though. That
would be fine if I didn't need speech from Jaws in this specific case.
@Paul:
I had no idea either of those games had keyboard files for them,
that's neat. I also haven't played either of them since they were
released so that would explain it. ☺
This is exactly the kind of thing I was trying to do, I was trying to
make a new keymap for the application but for whatever reason I
couldn't see it in the keyboard manager (even running it from the
quick settings menu). In years past, I seem to recall being able to
choose from any open applications when choosing new keymap? I of
course could be totally wrong and I'm misunderstanding how keyboard
manager works now. I'm about to go look at that post you linked to,
this could also answer some questions.
@Steve:
Again thanks for the suggestion. I'll totally try that if I can figure
out why I can't seem to be able to create a new keymap for this
specific application. Unless it's something I'm supposed to make in
notepad now?
For anyone curious, the application in question I was trying to work
with is called Visual Boy Advance, which is an emulator for Gameboy
Advance/Colour/Original. I discovered that there are scripts to make
the first 2 generations of Pokemon games accessible. I personally felt
super nostalgic as I'd played them as a kid, so thought I'd go and
revisit them again. I personally ended up modifying the Visual Boy
Advance keymap as well as the Pokemon Access script keys to get around
the issue for the time being and found that I actually enjoyed this
new configuration loads better personally. I still figured I'd keep
this discussion going though as I do have other games I'd want to try
this with. Also it's an issue I keep seeing Jaws users talk about from
time to time and knew people had been getting around it.

On 12/11/21, Steve Nutt <steve@...> wrote:
Yes, I think you can do this with the keyboard manager.

Undefine the keys you don't want to use in a particular application, bit
like settings.

application, or is there a way to enable some sort of pass through mode, if
you will? Basically so I don't have to press insert 3 etc every time. It's a
super niche case I'm making here possibly, the specific use case here is
when playing certain games which require the arrow keys. Most of the time
this question comes up the stock answer people usually give is to just use
NVDA, but I'm more curious if such a thing can be done with JFW

Yep, press JAWS Key and 3, then type in the key. It will be passed to
the application.

All the best

Subject: Bypassing certain keys in a specific application?

Hi there list,
I've started using Jaws again recently after not using it for at least
a good decade, so I'm still catching up to speed here.
Basically though, I'm wanting to bypass certain keys and have that key
passed through to the application. Is this something I am able to
do/how would I be able to do it?
Regards,
James

Ben,

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  I had already started his tutorials and hadn’t gotten to this one yet.  It definitely gave me the solution I was looking to find.

 

All the best to you and the list…

Mark

Hey Mark

 

You can also hold the Windows key and use the number row to open pinned Apps on your Taskbar. For example, the second pinned App on my Taskbar is Microsoft Edge, so I can hold the Windows key and press 2 to launch Edge from anywhere.

 

Check out this great tutorial from Dan Clark:

 

Pin and Arrange Apps on the Taskbar

 

Cheers

 

Ben

Thanks for the reply.  It used to be so easy to simply do the Windows Key plus T and then use first letter navigation.  I guess this Old Dog will need to learn a new trick!

 

Thank you again,

Mark

Hi,

I don’t think so, as this change has to do with changes to the technology used to display Taskbar and other items on screen. Without going into details, I can say that Taskbar and other items are seen as UIA controls instead of Microsoft Active Accessibility (ask me offlist for some technical details as that is beyond the scope of one screen reader).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hello All,

 

In Windows 10 I was able to use first letter navigation on the task bar to open pinned apps.  This does not seem to work in Windows 11.  Any way to change this?

 

As always, thanks in advance…

Mark
