Albert, The way I do it is—while in brousing books—I click on the Title of the book. When you open that link, go to “Add to my wish list” and click it. You will receive the message something like ---- “(title of book) successfully added to your wish list.” Then I go back to brousing  or go to Wish List.

Good morning everyone,

Hi everyone!
I have a problem and need to know if its just me or if others are seeing
the same thing.
I have a bunch of photos in my iPhone that I wanted to transfer to my
PC, so I set up the photos app on my iPhone to upload all of its
pictures to my iCloud drive. I then tried to access the iCloud drive
using Edge. I had no trouble logging into my iCloud account and then to
the drive, but then I found that no matter what I did, I simply could
not access the files on the drive so I could download them. I finally
gave up and called Aira to get help from one of their agents and was
able to get all of my photos downloaded without much of a problem,
probably because they didn't have to use a screen reader.
Does anybody else have any problems accessing the files on their iCloud

Hi Stephen,

 

I called Vispero, who confirmed the extension is broken with NVDA and JAWS. The agent helping me said it looks like a Chrome update, or an update to the Wordle extension broke accessibility with multiple screen readers.  She advised trying the following link, while the extension is running.

https://www.possiblepromise.com/wordle

 

After configuring the 3 JAWS settings for this page, everything worked perfectly.  The problem is that the game on that page doesn’t appear to be synced with the NY Times page (e.g. yesterday’s word was already on the NY Times page.

 

The person at Vispero asked if I had contacted the developer of the extension; I hadn’t at that point, but have since posted a review in the Chrome Web Store, and sent an E-mail to the publisher via the Chrome Web Store.  Although there are 836 users of the extension, mine was the only review.  Perhaps others might submit a review and/or send a message to the publisher, in order to bring attention to the problem.

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.

Follow these steps:

 

If using the laptop keyboard layout your modifier key is the Shift Lock. On a desktop keyboard layout, to get to the system tray, use the Jaws/Insert key on the numpad and press F11. Arrow down and see what is in the system tray.

 

Another problem you could be having is a need to run a Disk Cleanup for there could be a lot of stuff that has been accumulating on your hard drive that you don’t need.

 

To runDisk Cleanup go to your Start Menu and type Disk Cleanup and press enter. Go through the checkboxes and wherever you see numbers of files that have accumulated, make sure that the checkbox is check. Tab over to run the disk cleanup and follow the prompts. This will help.

 

After doing that you need to check to see if you are up-to-date with Windows and your Office Suite.

moderated Re: Question on how too add a book too my wish list using my computer.

leonard morris
 

An alternative way  is to install the Bard express app on your computer. After you have configured it you have a number of options to select the title you want and then it is just a matter of checking the book end then tab to add it to the wish list. Once you do that go to your phone and go to get books where you will see the wish list end the book will be there ready for download. For me this method is easier to navigate than the website.

If an apps are pinned to your task bar they will be in an order. You should press windows key plus T to go to the task bar and then use your right arrow to go through them in order. I just looked at my task bar and Word is in the third position. I can launch Word from anywhere by pressing windows key plus 3. You should only pin those items you use most frequently since you can only use numbers 1 through 9. I have Word, Chrome, and Out look pinned to my task bar. Quite often your computer comes with apps already pinned to the task bar. If you don’t want those apps on the task bar you can unpin them. To do this go to your task bar and find the app you want to unpin. Press your application key or shift f10 and arrow down until you find “unpin” and press enter. That will change the number of all the apps that are pinned after it. I gave the example that Word is Windows 3 so if I unpin the app that is in the second position Word will move to that position and I will use windows key 2. I am sure this explanation is confusing so if you want to talk instead of emailing you can send me an email at marianne@....

This is an issue you should take up with Freedom Scientific. I have noticed myself that if an Outlook message is of the complicated web page variety, JAWS will take a few seconds to go through it and then convert the view to a virtual one. However, if something else is going on with your versions, then you need to escalate this so that Freedom Scientific Technical Support can work with you to see why this is happening.

The advantage of pinning apps to the taskbar is that for the sighted
users it makes it very convenient to launch apps that they can see
right in front of them. for the keyboard users or the blind is they
can lanuch apps using keyboard short in addition to the Windows key as
being one of the keys. for example, the first app on the taskbar
usually is MS Edge. You can launch Edge by simplly pressing the
shortcut key combination, Windows key+1 on the number row on top.
Similarly, pressing Windows key+2 would launch file explorer.

Hope this helps.

Thank you,

Bharat.

I have never pinned an app to the task bar. I have shortcuts for most of my
apps on the desktop. Would there be any advantages to pin my apps to the
taskbar?









moderated Question on how too add a book too my wish list using my computer.

Albert Cutolo
 

Good morning everyone, 

 

When I download a book from the Bard web site, using my computer, How do I add that book too my wish list? I know how too do it on the Stream, but I don’t know how too do this  on my computer.

I have also wondered what the advantages of are in pinning apps to the taskbar?

 

At work, they recommend that we do this, but what is the difference in pinning them there and pinning them to your Start menu?

Thanks.

 

Claudia

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 want to pin to the Taskbar,  try 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, and you want to add what's below, but read what's below character by character because you must include the space in what you type in.

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.

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi, Rosie. Just put whatever you have on your desktop on the Task Bar instead, then delete the icons that are on your desktop.

I keep my desktop as clean as possible. It helps my machine load faster. I pin apps to my task bar.

If any of us should begin using the new Notification History and Rules

undesirable, here's how to set everything back to the defaults for
Notification History and Rules. I got this from Eric at FreedomScientific.


*To Remove Notification History And/Or Rules*

1. Open JAWS Menu with INSERT plus J.

2. Arrow down to Utilities sub menu and press ENTER.

3. Arrow down to Explore Utilities Folder and press ENTER.

4. Arrow down to Explore My Settings and press ENTER.

5. Press BACKSPACE to ascend one folder.

6. Find the folder called Notifications, and press ENTER.

7. To remove notification history, remove the following file,

Notifications.json

8. To remove notification rules, remove the following file,

notification.rules.json

I get the repeats for any item set to "None" or "Some" even without changing any settings. (my punctuation level is set to "None" for most programs, a few use a different profile that is set to "All").

Hi Mike,

I want it to speak those characters with punctuation set to none, but
when it speaks them, it does so twice.

Hi Bill,



This is why I explained how the settings in here work. He's getting
double speak for punctuation marks by setting that mark on, None, when
if it were set on, All, it might be different.



These settings work backwards than what you would think. For example;
If you choose " none "
for the dollar sign, Jaws will speak / recognize every dollar sign in
whatever you are reading. On the other hand, if you choose the " all "
radio button, Jaws will not speak / recognize any dollar signs.



Stay safe and take care. Mike.

Hi, Mike. Dennis isn't drawing attention to the fact that the
punctuation is spoken. The bug he is reporting is that the punctuation
symbols are being spoken multiple times.

Hi Dennis,



Jaws Quick Settings and Custommize Settings handles punctuation
symbols differently. Below is an explanation.



This is a note on the difference between changing punctuation settings
in Jaws quick settings, Insert + V, & customize punctuation in the
Settings Center default all applications. They work backwards from one another.



When setting punctuation in Jaws quick settings, this controls the
amount of punctuation JAWS will speak / recognize. The default
setting is most. To hear less punctuation spoken you would select
some or none.



When making changes in the customize punctuation list, this basically
tells Jaws how much of a selected punctuation mark to ignore. If you
do not want Jaws to speak/recognize a particular punctuation mark you
want to choose the " all " selection. You will have 4 radio buttons
to arrow up or down through. They are none, some, most, & all. In
these selections they work backwards than what you would think. For
example; If you choose " none "
for the dollar sign, Jaws will speak / recognize every dollar sign in
whatever you are reading. On the other hand, if you choose the " all "
radio button, Jaws will not speak / recognize any dollar signs.



Summary: In short the Jaws quick settings tells Jaws what punctuation
to recognize / speak, & in the Settings Center default all
applications / Customize Punctuation settings, tells Jaws what
punctuation to ignore / not speak.
Hence, they work backwards from each other.

Hope this helps some of you understand the differences between the 2
punctuation setting options.
Take care.
Mike

Can someone try the following and see if you get the same reaction?



1. Load the Settings Center and select Punctuation, then Customize
Punctuation.
2. 2. You'll be placed in the list of punctuation with the layout of
3. Punctuation character, text name of that character, and the
punctuation mode for that character
4. Arrow down the list until you get to one of the following
characters.
5. Number, dollar, and, percent, at
6. 3. Set the mode for these characters to "none," then tab to and
select Ok.
7. Then tab to and select "Apply."

4. Repeat step#1 and arrow dow the list. Do those characters speak
twice

So instead of

Number, the character itself,

Then number, the text name,

Then none, the mode,

I get the character announced twice, then the text name, then the
mode, such as,

Number number number none

At at at none

Dollar dollar dollar none

Percent percent percent none

And and and none



Anyone else get this?



Thanks,

Dennis T. Brown

Follow these steps:

 

If using the laptop keyboard layout your modifier key is the Shift Lock. On a desktop keyboard layout, to get to the system tray, use the Jaws/Insert key on the numpad and press F11. Arrow down and see what is in the system tray.

 

Another problem you could be having is a need to run a Disk Cleanup for there could be a lot of stuff that has been accumulating on your hard drive that you don’t need.

 

To runDisk Cleanup go to your Start Menu and type Disk Cleanup and press enter. Go through the checkboxes and wherever you see numbers of files that have accumulated, make sure that the checkbox is check. Tab over to run the disk cleanup and follow the prompts. This will help.

 

After doing that you need to check to see if you are up-to-date with Windows and your Office Suite.

One way is to tab to it—you should hear taskbar.

 

Ok, then tell us what applications are in your system tray and what is pinned to the taskbar.

 

You don’t answer my questions people on this list may not be able to help.

Maddison,

 

Can you tell us what programs are being loaded in the System Tray?

 

Also, can you tell us what programs do you have pinned to your Taskbar?

 

It might be that you have unnecessary programs in the System Tray that you don’t need running and too many programs that are pinned to the Taskbar.

Hi all,

I’ve noticed that sometimes when I open a message that Jaws goes silent but yet when I arrow through it the contents still show up on my braille display; any idea what could be causing this and what I could do to resolve this? It happens randomly which makes it weirder and harder to know when it’ll happen. Using latest versions of Jaws, Microsoft 365 and Windows 11.
