Could just pick up a older Iphone and use it like a Ipod. Doesn't have to have cell phone service on it.

Would an iPad be easy to carry with me to the gym?

All I can recommend would be an iPhone or iPad, which would also let you subscribe to Apple Music if you wish.

 

iTunes for PC can also access Apple Music, so you can use it with JAWS as well as on an Apple iOS device.

Subject: Ipod Shuffle Alternatives?

 

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I know this might not be the forum for this question, but does anybody out there know of any lightweight, blind-accessible alternatives to the Ipod Shuffle? I currently have an Ipod Shuffle First Generation which I purchased in 2008, and just recently, the battery dies after only 1 hour! Unfortunately, Apple makes it so the battery can't be replaced easily. Also, from what I understand, Ipods in general are going out-of-print. This is such a shame, as the Ipod Shuffle is the most accessible one for me, as there isn't a touchscreen. If I need to get something new, I want something that can be compatible with ITunes Music, especially .m4a files, something that can store lots of music, and most important of all, something that has an easy way to replace the battery! And, I hope there's something out there that can plug into my Apple Adapter that came with the Ipod Shuffle I have.

I also get the “Main Menu”, but it only shows up when I reboot or turn the computer on after it was off, once I close it it’s gone.

Things like OneNote, Settings etc. you might want to check your Startup folder to see if any shortcuts/programs are being launched.

You might try typing background in the search bar, then choose which background apps run under system settings, press enter and turn off the ones you don't want.

How well does Jaws 2018 work with the latest Kindle for PC

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

Was curious to know if anyone’s been using the most recent version of Kindle for PC and Jaws 2018? I know there have been supposed improvements on both sides in regards to accessibility, but poking around online, it doesn’t really say how extensive. If things like highlighting or making notes, that sort of thing can also be done with Jaws. I’ve heard that NVDA also is supposed to work well with Kindle for PC, but NVDA is more my backup choice for doing things. I’d rather stick with Jaws if possible. How about braille display support?

I like FSReader and QRead well enough, but the most you can really do with either program is bookmark. That and if you’ve got multiple devices you’ve soon got a patchwork of books and bookmarks on different machines.

The idea of being able to make notations and highlight passages and have synchronization across platforms and devices is appealing to me. Thus my interest.

 

Thanks,

Cristobal


Re: Outlook2016 often "forgets" Ctrl=-y "goto folder" command

Not here, it works for me every time.

But check your title bar before you do it with JAWS+T and make sure Outlook hasn't lost focus.

Outlook 2016 sometimes “forgets” the Ctrl-y “goto folder” command. I have to use the Alt-q Edit field and literally spell it out for the suddenly dim-witted program.
Does this happen to anyone else?

Thanks.

OfffUsage At Low Prices Or Free

Owais Patel <owaisipatel@...>
 

Hello everyone. I have downraded Jindows 10 onto my Mac. I want to use it as effeciently as possible. My current budget does not permit me to buy any versions of Office. I know about the $10 offer to pay for usage per month. I heard that you can get office applications from the store in Windows. Does the free usage make a difference for using Office applications if I sign in with my Hotmail Account? Thanks.

Sincerely,
Owais

If your Firefox has updated to version 57 or above it will be mostly useless with Jaws for the time being.

Hello, all:

I'm using Windows 7 and JAWS 18. Haven't taken the plunge to Windows 10 yet.

Recently, and I think since the last JAWS 18 update snuck into my system, I've been having difficulty using web sites. I keep getting stuck and can't read through web pages I used to manage just fine. What happened?

Here's my latest challenge: I once signed up with "Instacart" and had no problem. Now, here's what I see on one of the pages: https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.instacart.com%2Fstore%2F%23store-wrapper&data=02%7C01%7C%7C90cba38602c0406ec54308d54d9a8616%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636500248419403268&sdata=iSmJj5h6E6ctzQNdmhLK9sR2Zn8%2FQgBF2Y6o9uW68fQ%3D&reserved=0 Tool tip That's all I can read.
I can't read any tool tip message, and I can't move further forward or back. I'm trapped. To me, it appears as though the rest is blank.

I expected to have some trouble with Instacart, but this is happening on other web sites. Any ideas would be greatly welcomed.

Appreciatively,

Shirley

Re: Installing Jaws Onto Additional Devices

After you install Jaws and the system reboots Jaws will ask if you want to authorize it or run it in demo mode. Just select you want to authorize it manually via the internet and at some point you get to where you type or paste in your authorization key.
