moderated weird and very annoying Outlook issue

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
Not sure if this is a Jaws or Outlook issue; so I thought I'd try posting hear
first. This has happened to me before; but I don't remember what I did to fix it
and since I'm using Windows 11 now I might have to do something different.
Anyway, when I press shift f6 to get to the list of folders that doesn't work
and in order to go through my list of messages (when I don't want to delete one)
I have to keep alt tabbing back and forth because I can't arrow through my list
of messages. I tried shutting down and re-starting my laptop but that didn't
solve the problem; and I haven't changed any settings or anything. Using latest
versions of Jaws, Office 365 and Windows 11. Really hope someone can help me as
this is very annoying.

Steve,

No, the audio of the screen reader (or audio in general, for that matter) is not reproduced on the remote side.  The only reason I can hear the screen reader, if they have one active, is because I have a phone call going at the same time and usually the phone is sitting with the user and "within receiver-shot" of the computer.  On those rare occasions where I actually want to hear what the screen reader is saying if I can't I will ask the person being assisted to place their phone close to the computer's speakers so it can pick up the screen reader output clearly.

Bill, that won't work.

What you want in a website is the actual name and path to the file, not the
file itself.

Example, if you were uploading Bill.doc, you would put
"c:\users\username\documents\bill.doc" in the file path box. Copying the
file itself from the clipboard won't give you the format.

Follow what I wrote in my previous post and you should be OK.

All the best

Hi, Madison. The first place you went wrong is trying to type in the name of
the file. Instead of doing that, find the file on the stick, copy the file,
not its contents, (in other words, don't open the file), to the clipboard.
Then on the resume page, when it asks you for the filename, paste in what
you copied to the clipboard, then go to the upload button, and press ENTER.
This will give Windows the full path and filename, which is what it needs.

It's a word document and it's saved on my USB stick. Any idea what I might

Hi Madison,

Firstly, find your file that you want to upload in File Explorer.

Next, press Shift and the Applications key on your computer, then arrow down
to Copy As Path and press enter.

Now the full file name, including path is copied to your clipboard.

Go back to the website, and in the edit box, paste the full name of the file
that you just copied from the clipboard and hit the Open button.

Now the field will be populated and you can hit Upload or however it is
termed on that site. Some sites, it's enough just to press the Open button.

All the best

Steve

Hi Brian,

 

As a blind technician, do you get the audio of the screen reader locally, if the host machine has it open?

 

In other words, if they leave their screen reader open, does the audio come to you locally?

 

Thanks for any help.

 

All the best

I use Quick Assist to take remote control of client computers all the time.  I have done so on several machines running a screen reader on the client end.

When I have remote sessions I always do them with myself and the other party having a phone call going on at the same time, so if they keep their screen reader on they can hear what they'd normally hear were they doing what I'm actually doing.  Some just dump the screen reader while I'm tweaking whatever because they just don't want to have the screen reader babbling the whole time.

I have no idea whatsoever how one would use Quick Assist with a screen reader on the assistant's end, because I've never tried that.

It's rock solid reliable, unlike Windows Remote Assistance, which was inclined to flaky behavior on many occasions.  The person doing the assisting must have a Microsoft account as the whole session is engineered using Microsoft's servers.  The person being assisted need not have a Microsoft account.

moderated Re: Accessibility of Microsoft Publisher

 

Microsoft Publisher is, for all practical intents and purposes, inaccessible for a screen reader user.  Much of this is the direct result of publisher being WYSIWYG software where the visual elements of the layout are not easily (or at all) presentable programmatically.

If there is someone who's blind who has found a way to use Publisher effectively, there are a lot of people who would love to know how that is accomplished.  I don't know of any and every time this question has come up the short answer to, "Is Publisher accessible?," is, "No."

Hello Madison:

The file is on a flash drive and not native to your computer's hard drive.
Thus, with File Explorer, you want to focus on the file that lives on the
flash drive, open the Context menu by pressing the Applications key, find
and activate Copy as Path. Next, in the open dialog, do a paste to insert
the complete file location, not only its name.

Cordially,

Curtis Chong

When the checkbox is checked for an item this means if you have any scripts installed they are enabled.
 
I have items in this list that aren't installed any more, and for the items that aren't checked you can check / enable them one by one to see if that application performs better or worse with it enabled.
 
Other than running Jaws in default mode or removing script files from the ENU folder this is a good way of disabling scripts to check applications that are giving you problems and you need to know if it's a script problem or a Jaws problem.

Interesting that you should mention Jamal as the error now pops up when I
open his Edsharp text editor program.
The only thing new on this desktop today -- the error reared its ugly head
this afternoon -- is an installation of Hartgen Consulting's Leasey
scripts.

That brings up a question.  Is there a way to temporarily stop a script
package from running so I can test whether might explain anything.
As apparently this isn't a part of JFW2022, unless it causes some major

Thanks a million!

As luck and God would have it, I, of course, found Edsharp in the list of
applications.  Figuring there was nothing to lose, I unchecked Edsharp,
saved the change, exited JFW and then restarted JFW.
Went into Edsharp, and, bingo, no mention of the homer error msg.
So, in a totally unexpected way, problem resolved.

I am a daily user of Edsharp (and have been for longer than I can
remember) and find it a great way to save all sorts of things.

I have used it, once you log into it, the tech controls your computer,
although sometimes you can tell what they are doing.

I use Quick Assist to take remote control of client computers all the time.  I have done so on several machines running a screen reader on the client end.

When I have remote sessions I always do them with myself and the other party having a phone call going on at the same time, so if they keep their screen reader on they can hear what they'd normally hear were they doing what I'm actually doing.  Some just dump the screen reader while I'm tweaking whatever because they just don't want to have the screen reader babbling the whole time.

I have no idea whatsoever how one would use Quick Assist with a screen reader on the assistant's end, because I've never tried that.

It's rock solid reliable, unlike Windows Remote Assistance, which was inclined to flaky behavior on many occasions.  The person doing the assisting must have a Microsoft account as the whole session is engineered using Microsoft's servers.  The person being assisted need not have a Microsoft account.

Thanks a million!

As luck and God would have it, I, of course, found Edsharp in the list of
applications. Figuring there was nothing to lose, I unchecked Edsharp,
saved the change, exited JFW and then restarted JFW.
Went into Edsharp, and, bingo, no mention of the homer error msg.
So, in a totally unexpected way, problem resolved.

I am a daily user of Edsharp (and have been for longer than I can
remember) and find it a great way to save all sorts of things.

Hi Mike,

You might be able to turn off scripts in Manage Application settings, try
the following.

To access the Manage application Settings...feature:
1. Open the Jaws context menu. Insert + J if running Jaws from the system
tray.

2. Press enter on Options, up arrow to Manage applications settings..., and
press enter.

Manage Applications settings... Explained:

This list box shows all applications that have been modified through the
Settings Center or with a script.
If a check box is checked, JAWS uses the customized settings. If you no
longer want JAWS to use a program's defined settings, clear the check box
next
to the program's name.

If you make any changes tab to, Okay, and press enter. Also take notice of
the other options while tabbing to the Okay button.
Other options are Enable All, Disable All and Remove Selected. You can also
tab past the Okay to the Cancel button.


Stay safe and take care. Mike.

Interesting that you should mention Jamal as the error now pops up when I
open his Edsharp text editor program.
The only thing new on this desktop today -- the error reared its ugly head
this afternoon -- is an installation of Hartgen Consulting's Leasey
scripts.

That brings up a question. Is there a way to temporarily stop a script
package from running so I can test whether might explain anything.
As apparently this isn't a part of JFW2022, unless it causes some major
issue, it's probably something that can be ignored.

Mario, thanks for the enlightenment. And to others for responding.

Hi, Mike. There is no "Homer.JSB" script file in my JAWS installation.
This
is either for an application you have installed, or it is a script which
an
application you have installed is expecting to find, and is not finding.

Suddenly, JAWS2022 is giving me this error msg.

Does it mean anything; or should it just be ignored.
I am wondering if this is a compatibility issue or a corrupted script. If
the latter, how do I repair it?

here's the error msg:

Script Load Error r

Error: The file C:\ProgramData\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\2022\Scripts\enu\Homer.JSB could not be
opened

Oh yes, I recall seeing it mentioned on some webinar from who knows where. It’s like a built-in TeamViewer or JAWS Tandem option. The reference on the podcast or webinar was to allow someone to come in and do something on your PC for you remotely.  Wish I could recall where I heard about it.
