Robin,

Thank you so much for your reply.

Recently, the application got introduced with screen recording feature.

The user interface is bit complicate to understand for the screen reader users.

So many unlabled buttons, checkboxes.

Anyway, let me explore the documentation before writing to them.

Thanks once again for your reply.

My company used to use this for capturing screen shots.  I am unclear if it has new functionality for recording screen activity.  I honestly don’t know how you would use it for screen images, since it usually involved drawing a box around what you want to capture, but maybe someone else has an idea.

Yes, I definitely used the TaxAct desktop software for self-employed persons. I only had a small amount of that type of income, but TaxAct wouldn’t let me use a lesser expensive version of the software since I had that income when I tried a couple of years ago, so I just paid for it up front this year. Did you try the touch cursor to tab around to get where you needed to be, keeping in mind that the prior field info is read first for some reason before the actual info for that field. I used Windows 10 and JAWS 22 but did check and things weren’t any easier with NVDA.

Well, I was unable to even get that far.  I could not tab to any buttons, even.  I was using taxact home and business – I wonder if you were using some other version?  I could barely import last years return and after that, I could hardly read the window, jaws cursor or virtual pc cursor.

Do you perhaps have any suggestions that might help others navigate the TaxAct program, or perhaps yours would be similar to mine? For examples, when I would restart the program after walking away for a while, I needed to use the touch cursor and then tab to the Continue Where I Left Off button or whatever it is where I could then press enter. Also, often when a new question came up, all the information wouldn’t be read, and I found it easiest to use the arrow keys to first arrow up to where the information for that question began and then use the down arrow to read through all the info and then find the appropriate button on which to press enter. A couple of times I had to route the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor and then find the exit button and do a left mouse click to get out of something. And then, too, for completing some of the lines on the form, especially when several lines were completed on one screen, I had to use the touch cursor to tab through the choices to then make each of my selections. And then once done, I would activate that cursor once again and tab through the entire screen to make sure that I had indeed chosen what I meant to choose. When tabbing through the choices, though, JAWS would most often repeat the prior choice before reading the current one, so it took much more time than it should to go through some of the forms.

To be clear, I used the web site to do my taxes. Although there were a few stumbling blocks along the way, There was always a work-around, whether having to use the Jaws or touch cursors, etc.

There is no way I could do a screen by screen explanation but I found it reasonably accessible.

Back when I filed my own taxes, I used the website version of TurboTax. It worked pretty well. Sometimes, I did need the jaws cursor. It was mostly accessible though.

I was able to prepare and submit my return using TaxAct desktop, but it did require using the touch cursor a lot and thus took much longer for me to complete my return this year.

moderated Re: Jaws not reading text as I type in edit fields in Edge

Rick Mladek
 

Hello all,

 

Within MS programs as ExCel, Word and Outlook, I have this problem, mostly with Excell not reading what I put in the cell. With Browsers as Firefox, the current jaws version is troubled with such as the find command and whatever is put into an edit field. With version 2019, these problems do not trouble me. I simply have to switch back/forth when these issues arise. I am using windows 10 and all is up-to-date for those that may need this information.

Hi Brian,

 

I have the same problem with Edge, but I’m using Jaws 19 so maybe that’s why.

 

I get around that by pressing the Jaws key with tab which reads the contents of the edit field.

 

Cheers

Zel

Hi Brian,

 

My guess would be old accounting software, that’s usually what trips businesses up, because it costs a fortune to upgrade them.

 

I now use Quickbooks Online, so I don’t have to install any software, just me and the ol’ browser.

 

All the best


Steve

Not that I don't agree with you, but the original poster has clearly stated, "Unfortunately, this is on a work machine. We have a couple of programs that only work with Jaws 18, so upgrading for now is out of the question."

Sadly, these sorts of situations are all too common.  If individuals or businesses don't have a commitment to keeping up-to-date on everything, being not-up-to-date on one thing often forces other things to have to be kept, too.

There's nothing personal about the original poster in this observation, but what on earth is this business using that will only work with JAWS 18 that won't work with the later versions?  I don't doubt what's been said, but that's a huge red flag right there.  So is the comment that Internet Explorer is still being used.  It will soon be entirely gone from Windows 10 and 11, and if they're not even running Windows 10 then it's not a red flag but a house afire!

Thanks Bill

I think I've decided its a bit inconsistent in the way it behaves. I'll keep playing around with that setting.
