There is also a federal government employees list with the national federation of the blind you could check.

The president's name is Romza, or something like that.

 

Thanks,

Hello All,

 

Is anyone who is totally blind currently employed, with the federal government?

If so, could I reach out with some questions related to JAWS and accessibility of the government data bases?

Thanks.

Van Lant, Robin
 

My work laptop is a 15-inch HP elitebook laptop with no numpad.  It works very well. My company had gone away from buying HP, but this machine has been good and has the function keys doing the traditional thing.  I like the keyboard design well.   My personal laptop, bought in late 2016  is a HP Pavilion.  I have not been happy with it.  I bought the 17-inch so that I would have the numpad.  The design feels flimsy, the function keys are media keys and I havent’ found someone who knows how to change that and I’ve had weird issues with the internal speakers almost since I got it.  Again I got this 5 years ago, but I wouldn’t buy one again based on this experience.  I know HP has different model lines, so maybe the Pavilion is one of the cheaper models. I also have an internal DVD drive and the 17-inch model, so I wonder if a smaller unit would have felt more sturdy.   

 

Good luck with your decision.  Never hurts to call HP, if  you can reach a person.

Hi. Looking at a utube, they use the audio speakers from bangos olphisum. And was looking at the hp store. I would like one with a 1 or 2 tb ssd. None at the hp Australia store. Am I out of luck or do I call. They have a sale on at the moment. Any one got a hp. Which size works well with jaws, nvda, windows narrator. And does it come with a number lock key, is the keyboard nice to use, and are the page up, down, end, home keys, easy to navigate. And do I need to then set the function kyeskeys. 3 years on site service. So any one used one.

Any thoughts.

Thanks.

Good morning Kevin:

 

I have been using Acrobat Reader for decades now. So…perhaps I can give you the information you need here.

 

In Acrobat Reader, press ALT+E to open the Edit menu. Up arrow to Accessibility options, and open the submenu. Down Arrow to Accessibility Assistant. Then, select the radio button to set options for screen readers. Move through the dialog. The most important setting is the one which loads large documents entirely instead of only one page. This must be on.

Hi,

I’m using the most recent version of windows10 and Jaws2022. I place my cursor on a PDF file and press enter. There are many times it takes minutes before I get the screen asking how I want to open the file. There are times it never ask the questions. I used the Jaws cursor and there was a message about knowing I was using a screen reader and that I need to do something with accessibility in Adobe Acrobat reader. I couldn’t find anything related to accessibility. Freedom Scientific said there are no settings in Jaws and I need to change some settings in Adobe Acrobat reader. They didn’t have any suggestions.

Any thoughts of where I can find the accessibility option in Adobe Acrobat reader?

Cheers,

Kevin:

 

This begs the question of why Acrobat Reader is taking so long to open on your computer. This delay most definitely should not be happening.

 

Is the PDF you are trying to read extremely large, as in hundreds of pages, or small, as in one or two pages?

 

Thanks.

 

Kindly,

Also, When opening a pdf document, I have found it better to find the file where it appears in your folders, copy it to the clipboard, and open Adobe Acrobat. Then press CONTROL plus O, and paste the document into that open dialog.

When I’m in the accessibility menu it shows that screen reader, magnifying and all are checked. When I go into Jaws cursor it shows that screen reader is checked and the other two options are not.

 

Adobe Acrobat reader is my default. I timed how long it took to open and it was over 2 minutes. This is a tenth generation laptopI5. I wonder if there is something wrong as when I’m MS word and do a spell check, there are times it takes 30-40 seconds before it starts. Sometimes longer. Then it takes 10-20 seconds when tabbing from ignore, ignore all, etc.

 

Whats up?

Here you'll have 3 radio buttons for settings option, screen reading programs, magnifiers and all accessibility options.  Choosee the want you want and press enter.  Now go through the various screens to set your preferred options.

Kevin,

 

To your initial concern, about being asked how you want to open the file:

 

This message suggests Adobe isn’t your default app for PDF files. After you’ve pressed alt-o to open the PDF file, this should work:

Press the applications key.

Arrow up to “Open with” (or press w). Press enter.

Then arrow up or down to Adobe. Press the tab key.

I believe that here you land on the option to use this application for all PDF files. Press spacebar on the checkbox.

After that, probably tab again to the Okay button and press spacebar again.

Subject: problem with Adobe Acrobat reader

 

 

Hi,

I’m using the most recent version of windows10 and Jaws2022. I place my cursor on a PDF file and press enter. There are many times it takes minutes before I get the screen asking how I want to open the file. There are times it never ask the questions. I used the Jaws cursor and there was a message about knowing I was using a screen reader and that I need to do something with accessibility in Adobe Acrobat reader. I couldn’t find anything related to accessibility. Freedom Scientific said there are no settings in Jaws and I need to change some settings in Adobe Acrobat reader. They didn’t have any suggestions.

Any thoughts of where I can find the accessibility option in Adobe Acrobat reader?

Cheers,

Kevin

Hi Kevin,
 
Open the Adobe Reader program and press, Alt + E, to access the edit menu.
 
Up arrow to, Accessibility, and press enter.
 
Now down arrow to, Set-up Assistant, and pres enter.
 
Here you'll have 3 radio buttons for settings option, screen reading programs, magnifiers and all accessibility options.  Choosee the want you want and press enter.  Now go through the various screens to set your preferred options.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

Hi, Kevin.

 

1. Open Adobe Reader.

2. Press ALT plus K for preferences.

3. Arrow down to Accessibility, and do not press ENTER.

4. TAB through the options and set as needed.

 

Also, When opening a pdf document, I have found it better to find the file where it appears in your folders, copy it to the clipboard, and open Adobe Acrobat. Then press CONTROL plus O, and paste the document into that open dialog.
