the sound is generated from the screen reader being used. in all cases, the sound is different when using NVDA, JAWS, or Narrator.

Mark, hopefully someone can explain it better, but the sound you are
referring to is to alert you that the caps lock is on.

for example, you start typing normally and press the shift key with a
letter intending to capitalize it, but the keyboard beeps indicating
that you actually are temporarily making the letter that you pressed
simultaneously with the shift key lowercase, indicating that the caps
lock is on. therefore what you have typed up until pressing the shift
key might have been unknowingly capitalized.

I checked, Bill, and yeah, some sounds are listed there. Thank you. But
in the case of the beep where the caps lock is on, then typing shift +
letter, that beep only happens when JAWS is on. Is there also a list of
what these JAWS sounds mean?

Hi, Mark. Most of these sounds are not JAWS-related, but, rather, Windows-related. If you want to know what a particular sound means, go to,

Control Panel>Sound>Sounds tab.

 

Each sound has an event associated with the sound. Once you look at the various events, you can tab to the name of the sound, and past that, there is a test button. When this test button is pressed, the sound associated with the event from which you just tabbed will be played.

Can anyone explain what the various sound indicators mean in JAWS?  For example, when I am typing and have the caps key on without knowing, and then I press shift and a letter, I notice JAWS beeps. I believe there's also some kind of chime sound to mean some kind of error or that it finds nothing. I haven't found any documentation that explains what these sound indicators mean so I'm kind of guessing.

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.

Hi,

 

If for some reason your Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is not opening a PDF file it is because Secure enhanced mode is not Checked.

 

Here is how to get to it:

 

Pull down the Edit Menu;

 

Arrow up to Preference; and press Enter;

 

Arrow down to Security (Enhanced Mode);

 

Tab once and press the spacebar if the checkbox is not check;

 

Tab to OK and try again to Open the file by Closing the Reader and re-Opening the file.

 

Also under Accessibility you should be using the default settings.

the same message in your Sent folder. If you put recipients in your CC or

Hi Curtis,

 

Interesting way for handling favorites.

 

However, pressing enter on the shortcut would always load that particular url into the same default browser.  Is there a way, apart from using the shift F10 "sent to" command, of chooseing which browser into which to load  the url at that time?      

 

i.e.  Sometimes a site may work better using Firefox rather than Edge while another may function better in another browser altogether.

 

Thanks

Greetings everyone:

 

I thought it might be helpful to the group if I passed along a solution for managing website favorites which works across all of the Windows browsers I have worked with over the years: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge.

 

First, I created a folder within My Documents called Favorites. There is nothing magical about the name of the folder. You can call it anything you like. This is where you would store any Favorite that you create.

 

Second, using Edge or any other browser, go to the web page for which you would like to create a favorite or shortcut. Press ALT+D or CTRL+L (it really doesn't matter) to move the focus to the address bar. Since the URL contained in the address bar is already highlighted (selected), press CTRL+C to copy the URL to the Windows Clipboard.

 

With File Explorer, open the Favorites folder you have created. Press CTRL+SPACE a couple of times to ensure that nothing is selected. JAWS should tell you when the line item is not selected.

 

Now, press Shift+F10 to open up a context menu and up arrow to New. Press right arrow to open the submenu and press down arrow to Shortcut. Press Enter.

 

Paste the URL you copied earlier into the edit field and tab once to type a name for the Shortcut. Then, press Enter.

 

That's all there is to it. Any time you want to manage or go to a favorite, use File Explorer first to locate the favorite and then press Enter to activate it.

 

Cordially,

 

Curtis Chong

Greetings everyone:

 

I thought it might be helpful to the group if I passed along a solution for managing website favorites which works across all of the Windows browsers I have worked with over the years: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge.

 

First, I created a folder within My Documents called Favorites. There is nothing magical about the name of the folder. You can call it anything you like. This is where you would store any Favorite that you create.

 

Second, using Edge or any other browser, go to the web page for which you would like to create a favorite or shortcut. Press ALT+D or CTRL+L (it really doesn't matter) to move the focus to the address bar. Since the URL contained in the address bar is already highlighted (selected), press CTRL+C to copy the URL to the Windows Clipboard.

 

With File Explorer, open the Favorites folder you have created. Press CTRL+SPACE a couple of times to ensure that nothing is selected. JAWS should tell you when the line item is not selected.

 

Now, press Shift+F10 to open up a context menu and up arrow to New. Press right arrow to open the submenu and press down arrow to Shortcut. Press Enter.

 

Paste the URL you copied earlier into the edit field and tab once to type a name for the Shortcut. Then, press Enter.

 

That's all there is to it. Any time you want to manage or go to a favorite, use File Explorer first to locate the favorite and then press Enter to activate it.

 

Cordially,

Hello Tom:

 

The advantage is that the approach is browser agnostic, meaning that for each browser, the user does not have to learn a different procedure for managing Favorites.

 

Kindly,

Hi Curtis,

 

The steps you outlined seems quite cumbersome and am wondering what advantages there are over, say, saving the url into the favorites list in each browser.   

 

However, I do like the idea of having all the favorites in a single folder and am wondering if the process could be made much simpler by using a auto hot key macro or similar. I'll have to give this some thought.

 

Cheers

Tom

You can clip the URL to the Clipboard and then use the run command:

 

  • Msedge for Microsoft Edge,
  • Chrome for Google Chrome, and
  • Firefox for Mozilla Firefox.

 

Then press space and paste in the URL. Press Enter.

Hi Curtis,

 

Interesting way for handling favorites.

 

However, pressing enter on the shortcut would always load that particular url into the same default browser.  Is there a way, apart from using the shift F10 "sent to" command, of chooseing which browser into which to load  the url at that time?      

 

i.e.  Sometimes a site may work better using Firefox rather than Edge while another may function better in another browser altogether.

 

Thanks

 

Tom
