I get Emails like that from a voip provider, and I wonder if you hit
insert-7 and if you see the link in that list can you activate it? If
not, sounds like a great use for Aira, I could not live without it --
you might have to give up some Starbucks to get it, but its really
wonderful. And if you have a phone, that Starbucks might work on
that. And if you Have Aira, you get a 30 minute call when you in
Starbucks.

Thanks for the reply.

I drink more Refreshers than coffee drinks from Starbucks, thus I get promos trying to get me to buy more Refreshers and they are successful!

I usually find these offers in the “inbox” of the Starbucks app on my iPhone. I couldn’t verify the dragon fruit special was a special offer, it just seemed to have an order here button. But then, I haven’t ordered Starbucks for 18 months.

Richard,

Thanks.  Caught that on re-reading.  But if this thing is a link, it should still be treated like any other link is in HTML, even if it's in an e-mail message.  You're right, though, about the actual locus of that issue, and it's not a webpage.

If the e-mail is forwardable, I'd be curious to have a look at it just to see what "gets seen" by NVDA when I'm reading it either in webmail or Outlook.

Brian,

I think his issue is with the promotional emails for account holders.

 

If that is the case, and if it is on the web site, you would have to have an account to log into to access the promotion.

 

I just logged in, though I don’t have a Gold membership, just a simple login and saw no promotions other than their Summer game ….

Re: Starbucks issue- promotions email

It sounds like this is a Windows issue since people using the app or the emails on iPhones are able to access it.

 

Hopefully Starbucks is aware enough of all the ADA compliance issues with web sites that have been in the news in the last year that they will respond in a timely manner.

 

Good luck,

Hi friends,



I Have a web app with edit boxes.

Just recently, when I move to an edit box it has started to say edit contains text on a certain edit box and it seems to repeat what is in the edit box twice.

It is the latest JAWS but I have also tried it with JAWS 2020 and on two machines.

Using the Edge Chrom browser, seems like it is something odd in the app but does anyone have any ideas?

Hi, Steve. None of the versions require purchase. The light version just doesn't require as much space on disk or in memory. You can download and install the full 64-bit or 32-bit versions without purchase. They are all free.

Sorry I don’t understand.

 

I thought it said that the light or free version doesn’t have screen reader functionality, but the paid for version does.

 

Because a blind person can’t actually see the screen, I would suggest that “making” them pay for accessibility just to use the program is a form of discrimination.

 

I’ll get off my high horse now.

Steve,

The site for Search Everything, https://voidtools.com, has been offered many times.  There is no such thing as a paid version.  Regardless of which edition or bit-depth you wish to download, it is freeware.

The lite version is nothing but the full version stripped of a number of things that many likely never use, and where absolute "lightness of being" is paramount.  Even the full version is incredibly resource light.

Thus, trying to claim this is discrimination, of any sort, is ludicrous.  If you need screen reader support, the full version has it at no cost.  If you don't need screen reader support, and don't want a couple of the features that the full version has, there is a lite version.

left.

I haven't made a single update to my system--not even a Windows update--in
over two weeks. The last Zoom update was maybe a month ago.
It's all very odd indeed.

Has anyone else noticed JAWS isn't announcing when participants enter and

think there were any JAWS or Zoom updates that week--not until yesterday
anyway.

Wow, that last sentence is a bit naughty isn’t it?

 

That is direct discrimination surely?

 

All the best

From the FAQ page, which has a dedicated answer to "what's lite?"  Note well the last sentence.

What is the Lite version of "Everything"?

The Lite version of Everything is the same as the normal multilingual version of Everything, except it has some features removed:

 

 

The Command line interface / ES will not work with the Lite version.

The SDK will not work with the Lite version.

Windows accessibility features and screen readers will not work with the Lite version.
