Yes, when I go to Control Pan

I think you mean Insert Space, not V for the first command.

Hi,

 

Do the following using the JAWS Layered Command:

 

Press Insert (JAWS Key) followed by the letter V.

 

Press the letter O.

 

Then, finally press the letter D.

 

Do this while you have the empty document opened in the Acrobat Reader.

 

Be sure that if you are using Windows 10 that you have installed the latest version of Acrobat Reader DC in the 64 bit version. Also, you need to be running the latest version of JAWS for the best possible result.

 

You can also find more OCR Layered commands when you Press Insert followed by the letter V, then the Questions Mark.

 

Another way you could scan the blank document is by running File Explorer and going to the folder where the file is located and highlighting it.

 

Once the file is highlighted, press your application key and arrow down to Convenient OCR with JAWS to Word.

 

You also have Convenient OCR available in that menu as well.

 

Hope all this helps.

Assuming that you are running a recent version of Jaws and are using Adobe Reader to open the PDF file, Jaws will perform an automatic OCR and attempt to read the context of the document to you.

 

I know that Jaws 2021 and 2022 will do the automatic OCR.  I am not certain how far back you need to go when this feature was built into the program.

 

I had this problem in the past and FS had me perform a Jaws repair and the problem was resolved. Jaws recognizes  that the PDF is a scanned image and attempts to perform an OCR to read the context of the image to you.

 

Good luck,

Mario

JAWS should have prompted you to OCR the document. If it did not, something else is going on.

Debby Hill
 

Hi Jeff,

From what I have found, the context menu--the applications key or shift F10--is your friend. I am going to make an assumption that you can get to your favorites. If my assumption is wrong, just let us know. Anyway, once you have focus on the item that you want to move/copy/delete, go to the context menu and arrow down. You will find the various options there. There is no "move" button, so to move an item hit enter on "cut." Then go to the folder in favorites you want to move the item to and again get into the context menu. Arrow down to paste and press enter. Your item should be moved.

I hope this helps.

Take care and stay safe!

Debby

I updated to Windows 11 a long time ago and one thing that I realized is that one of my favorite features is gone. In Windows 10, there is a feature that I really like and that is one has the ability to open a file location where a file is saved from the start menu and in Windows 11, this feature seemed to be found nowhere. 
I want to know How I can accomplish the same task with Windows 11?

The OP did not ask for a downloader. That is a very different thing from a youtube app. The request did not go into detail but it sounded like what they wanted was an equivalent to the google youtube app for smartphones, but for pC instead. As such, there are at least browser extensions -- i keep getting offers to install in chrome. I'm sure if they wanted some programme that attempted to download youtube videos to make local copies 9something which youtube is trying to prevent), they would have specified so.

au contraire!

as mentioned, there is Pontes Media Downloader which doesn't seem to download videos as quickly as it once did, but there also is TCA Media
Downloader:
https://tecnoconocimientoaccesible.blogspot.com/2021/12/tca-mediadownloader-24-mejorado-ahora.html

there are links beyond the end of the description to download a tutorial done in Spanish, there's no English version), the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of the program, and libraries for Linux.

once downloaded and unzipped, and after running it, the first thing to do is shift+tab to and space bar on the Menú Button, down arrow to and spacebar on Opciones.
you will be on the General tab, tab to Seleccione un idioma para la
aplicación: Combo box, and down arrow to Inglés. tab to and spacebar on the Aceptar Button.
you will then be faced with a statement "Se cambio el idioma y la aplicación tiene que reiniciarse (Changed the language and the application has to be restarted.).", in which you will press spacebar on the Aceptar Button again.

some of the following changes you will run in to might still be in Spanish as the developer has not gotten around to translating them into English, but most of it will be in English once you set the language to Inglés.
have fun exploring.

Hmm. Well, there is a youtube extension for chrome and probably an add-on for Firefox as well. Not sure about a standalone app – I don’t think so but someone could correct me if I’m wrong.

Why do you want this? Just curious. Youtube on a chromium-based browser with ad-blocker isntalled is pretty much the ultimate youtube experiecne, though there are a few things that I can only seem to do on my phone app, like answer polls and such, maybe. I guess it depends on how active you want to be with the youtube community.

This is one of those, "search me," things.  I suspect you have tripped over a very recent development in web coding, as new objects are constantly coming into existence, and this is how same is exposed to the screen reader.

I really can't say that there is anything clear about why that is, or what, precisely that means.  This appears to be it, though:  https://www.w3schools.com/bootstrap/bootstrap_carousel.asp

I'm not sitting at a Windows 11 machine at the moment, but most of my "old favorites" are found by activating the last item in the context menu, which is something like "more actions" (that's probably not the exact wording).

I use "Send to" quite a bit, and that's where it is.
