Hi, Mike. Your two methods to turn off location access usually work. On some machines, though, once you turn off location, you get the same type of message, only this time, the website informs you that the website doesn't have access to your location, because it is blocked. I found, though, that updating JAWS using the link which I gave in a previous message, and updating Google Chrome, fixed the problem.

Hi Judy,

 

Take a look at the following 2 methods.

 

From: Barbara Sheinbein
Well this is very ironic.  I have had the same issue.  I finally got tired of hearing it.  I contacted Google via Be My Eyes.  It took a bit of time, but
we did get it fixed.
 
If you use Brian's method, it will stop the message for all web sites.  This may or may not be what you want especially if you land on a new web site and
want to configure it differently.
 
To get rid of this message for the current web site, do the following.
 
You can get to your site settings by selecting "view site information" located in the address bar right before the site address. To do this press alt-d
to go to the address bar.  Next shift tab once.  Press enter.  Then follow the steps below:
 
Tab down and select site settings
This will take you to site permissions
Tab down to location
We changed your settings from "allow" to "block"
To go back to the previous setting select "allow" (if you change your mind)
 
When done press control-F4 to close the settings window.
 Barbara
 
From: Brian Vogel
If you want to forbid ANY site from asking for (or accessing your location):
1. Open Chrome Settings.
2. Navigate to the Privacy and Security Settings
3. In those settings, navigate to Site Settings and open.
4. In Site Settings, Permissions Section, the first option is Location, navigate to it and open it.
5. The default radio button, Sites can ask for your location, will be selected.  Go to the next associated radio button, Don't allow sites to see your
location, and activate it.
6. Optional, beneath that radio button is the Customized Behaviors section, there are two subsections, Not allowed to see your location and Allowed to
see your location each of which will contain a list of sites you've previously denied or allowed location access for.  You can selectively delete these
if desired.
 
Google isn't what's accessing your location, per se, in the instances under discussion here, but the websites you're browsing.  Google is keeping records
regarding which you wish to allow or disallow that access for.  If you turn off Google's ability to ask permission then, effectively, all websites other
than those you may have already allowed will be disallowed going forward, as you are telling Chrome not to ask you on behalf or sites if they can access
your location - which means they can't, and you won't be asked if they can.
Brian
 

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi, Karen. If you find a link, and use that shortcut, you are probably on a webpage. If you are using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, it is probably going to tell you that the current location is already in a virtual view. To get the actual URL from a link, you usually focus on the link, press the Applications key, arrow down to copy, then read the URL by using WINDOWS Key plus JAWS Key plus X to read what is in the clipboard. This is a good way to find out if a link is trying to take you to a scam website where you don't want to go.

Hi, Karen. If there is a button or other control that you can press by focusing on it, and pressing Space or Enter, pressing INSERT plus SHIFT plus V puts that control in a virtual view. A virtual view is one in which you can look at the control without actually causing it to do what it does when you press Enter or Space on it. It is a way of looking at the controls on the screen without actually clicking on it, the way a sighted person would do by looking at it.

Hi, Judy. If you want to make sure Chrome is updated to the latest update,

 

1. Open Chrome.

2. Press ALT, followed by the letters, F, E, G.

3. This will update Chrome.

 

With the latest JAWS update and doing this update to Chrome may fix your issues with the message, This website has access to your location.

 

I have found that, sometimes, even when you turn off location, then the message is, Your location is blocked for this website. Press SHIFT plus F6 to change this in the address bar.

In JAWS 2022, current build, I'm getting the following error when I press Control plus Shift plus T in Zoom to hear the identity of the currently speaking conference participant:


Unknown function call to ClearLastNotificationAppName


Of course, the function name is first spoken, then spelled.


I am not using any third-party or homebrewed scripts for Zoom--this is straight outa-the-box JAWS. Works fine in 2021, best in 2020, all on current Zoom, 5.10.4.5035.

So, other defaults may get triggered which you will have to adjust.
