moderated Problem With Wordle Extension

Katrina Anderson
 

I updated JAWS 22 this morning so have the latest running on my Windows 10 laptop.  I wonder if something in the JAWS update negatively impacted the Wordle Chrome extension, because everything worked perfectly last night, prior to the update, but sadly that is no longer the case.

 

I confirmed the “Make Wordle Accessible” extension is added to Chrome, and that it is enabled.  However, when on the New York Times Wordle page, JAWS doesn’t report that it is active (can’t recall the exact wording of that).  I confirmed the 3 JAWS settings for that page are properly set.  I tried many different things like disabling the extension and then enabling it, removing the extension and adding it again, unloading JAWS and reloading it, restarting the computer, etc.  No success!

 

Any thoughts as to what is happening?  I guess I can call, but thought I’d check here first.

Hi All,
 
Please don't follow my previous steps, I didn't explain them well enough, so use these better explained steps instead.
If you have folder shortcuts on the desktop you don't get the Pin to Taskbar in the context menu option.
 
How you can get around this if you have a folder shortcut that you've created on the desktop and you want to pin it to the Taskbar is to do the following:

1. Highlight the desktop icon and press, Alt + Enter, to open the icon's properties.
 
2. When you open the icon's properties you'll be on the Shortcut page in the, Target field but, first go to the beginning of this line before typing anything by pressing the, Home, key.  Now type what's below.
 
explorer
 
That's the word, explorer , followed by a space
 
Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close the properties.
 
You should now get a, Pin to Taskbar, option in the context menu.
 
Here's a before and after example of how the Target field will read using the Downloads folder desktop shortcut icon as the example:
After opening the properties of the Downloads icon shortcut below is what's in the Target field.
 
C:\Users\Mike\Downloads
 
Now this is how the Target field will read after adding the word, explorer , followed by a space to the beginning of the Target field and pressing enter on the, Okay, button.
 
C:\Windows\explorer.exe C:\Users\Mike\Downloads
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Greetings:

 

I just did the update to JAWS 2022 today and was keen on trying out the Notification History feature (Insert Space, n). Alas, the dialog which I get shows everything except the list view with my notification history. When I did the upgrade, I had App Notifications turned off. App Notifications are now on, and were turned on before I ran a JAWS repair.

 

I have opened up a case with Vispero Tech Support. Here’s hoping we can figure out what is wrong here.

 

I am running Windows 10 21H2.

 

Kindly,

Hi Bill!

I would too. I would think that only the rules file would be exported as they would be something you might want to import into other JAWS installations, where as the history is going to be machine and session specific so there wouldn't be much of a point to importing it anywhere.

I can see how that history might be useful to tech support if the situation warrants a look at it though.

Hi all. I have been working through the process of trying to use the web based version of Outlook with a screen reader. I will say two things. First, it is tough, but secondly, it is doable. You do have to know how to use JAWS in applications mode though. The most challenging part that I seem to have my biggest problems with is the calendar section. I can get lost in that part of the app. I can normally find my way out of it, but it can be hard sometimes.
There are some shortcut keys that do help. I know that some companies are not paying to have the desktop apps installed on local PC's. If you can, certainly try to use the Outlook Desktop app. If it is not possible, there are ways to adjust Outlook on the web, so don't be discouraged. It will just take some adjustments.

In my experience, the web version of Outlook is more than a little cumbersome and definitely less efficient for a JAWS user than simply using Microsoft Outlook running on a computer. It would be a reasonable accommodation to request that your employer provide you with this software on your work system and then configure it to connect to the email servers that the company uses.

There is no practical way to make the web version of Outlook feel and behave the same as the Desktop version of Outlook.

Hi Pam,

I am really sorry for writing back with so much delay.

Although i can't find the option under my account but my wife's outlook has an option regarding adjusting the sort of display she would like to have. Would request you to look under options for adjusting these mail settings.

I really hope, it is of some help for you.

Thank you,

bharat.

In order to access one of my email accounts for work, I need to use
outlook.office.com. I normally use outlook installed on my laptop,
and it works fine, but with the website, I cannot figure out how to
get my emails to display in a list format so I can quickly go down the
list and hit enter on the one I want to read.

Does anyone have any tips for getting my email to display in a more
easily readable format with JAWS?

Pam
