Dear list,

I know I’ve asked a couple of questions and a few people have posted links regarding using google apps with jaws. I have been going through some computer training at a computer center for the blind and my trainer is telling me that she can’t get it to work with jaws and that none of her fellow trainers have ben successful either. This seems to be different from what I’m hearing on this list and just wanted to confirm. Thanks so much

Re: google drive

Good afternoon again everyone,

We used Google Drive under Windows 7 and it worked fine. Since my
wife's computer has had to go to the shop more times than we care to
count should we decide to replace it we'll probably be using it under
Windows 10 depending on where we buy the new machine.

Hi, I am running JAWS 16 latest build, and I am on a website where I believe the controls to play the videos are hidden. I cannot use form navigation (F and SHIFT+F) to find where the player is that controls playing, pausing, stopping of the videos, etc. There is also no link to play the video, and when I am on the same page as the video, it does not automatically play. If I set graphics to show all instead of tagged, I still cannot find it. What is the best way to manipulate the controls of a video, when it appears hidden like this to a screen reader?

Pretty much most of them will do and it comes down to personal preference
with respect to how big you want it to be, do you want a laptop that has a
numeric pad etc. I personally like to use Jaws with the numeric pad and
therefore whenever I look for a laptop I usually look at 15.6 inch models as
quite a few of them do have a numeric keypad on the right.
One other consideration is memory, make sure you get a laptop that has at
least 8 Gb of RAM, I usually even get one with 16 Gb or upgrade it to 16 Gb.
I personally like laptops which have an SSD (solid state drive) instead of a
traditional hard drive. If you need lots of storage than that may not be an
option because while SSD prices have come down a lot, beyond around 500 Gb
they are still quite expensive. Also, if you are looking for a relatively
inexpensive laptop then you probably won't find one that has a decent size
SSD.

Re: JAWS 17 and Excel, no speech other than title and menus.

Hi Tim,

 

Hope you figure it out, but just for your information, Microsoft recommends to use the 32 bit version of Office with Windows 10 64 Bit and I would definitely recommend you stick with the 32 bit version unless you have a requirement to load absolutely huge spreadsheets and I mean large as in more than 2 Gb in size which is  extremely unlikely for most users.

In review mode only, JAWS sees lots of stuff, including bits and pieces of cell contents,  enough for me to recognize they are contents of the cells I entered on my old computer.  Visually everything is there I am told, but JAWS does not work.  Very frustrating; prior to testing Excel, I thought I was done and all was well, but not so fast partner!  Microsoft is working on it.  I called their accessibility help folks, who patiently tried a bunch of things, consulted with supervisors, tried a bunch more, including some pretty clever check of JAWS settings, then they gave up and it is now escalated up the chain.  The woman did say this was a “known” issue.  Unfortunately, the escalation review/research is expected to take 2-3 days.  As my own test, I tried unloading the 64 bit version of Office 2010 and installed a 32 bit version, thus matching more closely what I have on the old computer, but no luck, same symptoms.  It must be something in Windows 10, since most everything else has been uninstalled and reinstalled, including JAWS.

Re: best free accessible pc tuners for windows 10

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Probably not what you wanted to hear, but my opinion on any of the so-called tune up applications for PC’s is very low, I think they mostly are garbage and while they claim they do whatever it is they do I wonder what they really do. I used to have a registry cleaner and the interesting part was that when you ran it it came up with whatever number of items it said it needed to clean up, so you told it to go ahead and clean them up. Afterwards if I ran it again it again said it had so many items to clean up so I told I t to do it again and it just kept on going. I feel that if it says it needs to clean up 23 items then once that is done it’s done for a while and it shouldn’t have another 20 items 5 seconds later.

My advice is to make sure your Windows is updated, run disc cleanup from time to time and if you can just don’t install a bunch of junk you later on end up uninstalling again. Windows has been getting better at managing things as well so with Windows 10 I personally feel there is no reason why one should have to run these tune up applications, but as I said, that is just my opinion.

Sieghard

Try this

·         Press windows key + R

·         The run dialog  will open

·         Now type jaws18 /default

·         Don’t press enter yet, you need to shut down jaws. Now press insert f4 and press space

·         You now will have no jaws. Now you press enter to run what you typed on the command prompt

·         Jaws is going to starts as default.

·         If your problem are the jaws settings, this steps should solve your problem

Tim,

 

Did you try checking your Jaws quick settings, Insert / Jaws key + V, to see if there's something that isn't right?

Take care.

In review mode only, JAWS sees lots of stuff, including bits and pieces of cell contents,  enough for me to recognize they are contents of the cells I entered on my old computer.  Visually everything is there I am told, but JAWS does not work.  Very frustrating; prior to testing Excel, I thought I was done and all was well, but not so fast partner!  Microsoft is working on it.  I called their accessibility help folks, who patiently tried a bunch of things, consulted with supervisors, tried a bunch more, including some pretty clever check of JAWS settings, then they gave up and it is now escalated up the chain.  The woman did say this was a “known” issue.  Unfortunately, the escalation review/research is expected to take 2-3 days.  As my own test, I tried unloading the 64 bit version of Office 2010 and installed a 32 bit version, thus matching more closely what I have on the old computer, but no luck, same symptoms.  It must be something in Windows 10, since most everything else has been uninstalled and reinstalled, including JAWS.

Hi Tim,

 

Are you actually physically seeing some of the cells, or is Jaws speaking, but just very little?

Take care.

I have tried a reboot, several times.  I did try the JAWS cursor, and could
see some of the text in the cells, but no luck past that.

The first thing I would do is a reboot.  The next thing would be a lot of
cussing and then look around with the jaws cursor.

HI Ann,

Thanks for responding.  The screen is maximized.  On protected view, I do
not know how to check or change that.  However, the lack of any speech
happens even with the blank document/chart you get when just starting the
program.  Normally, when you arrow around you hear the column and row
numbers, but all is silent on the new computer.  Anybody have any ideas?
