Udo Egner-Walter
 

Hi all,

I did my best to describe the process of making this site accessible with domain-specific scripting. You can find all files hiere: 

https://e.pcloud.link/publink/show?code=VZ1w3kZ8OCf4IgIaubyeg3lYhdqDQe2o5Bk

The folder contains these files. 

ReadMe.txt: 
A quick installation guide if you want to use the scripts only. 

www.moodyradio.org.jkm
The key map file with the hot keys. I used: 
Alt+I, Infos for domain-specific scripting
Shift+Alt+RightArrow, louder volume
Shift+Alt+S, Player Pause
Shift+Alt+P, Player Play
Shift+Alt+LeftArrow, less volume

www.moodyradio.org.jsb
The binary script file for JAWS 2021. If this won't run, you can compile the source code again as described in ReadMe.txt. 

www.moodyradio.org.jss
The script source file I used. 

www.moodyradio.org.txt
Instructions how to make domain-specific scripts with www.moodyradio.org as example. 

Use the scripts and instructions at your own risk. 

Please let me know if something is missing or wrong. 

Happy scripting 
Udo

This part should be true for any laptop user.  But what happens afterward is directly dependent on the actual touchpad hardware you have and what part of its driver has a direct interface with Windows.

In the case of my HP laptop, when you do that search, the only option that shows up in Windows 10 Touchpad Settings (which is in the Devices dialog) is for touch sensitivity.  And if you choose Precision Touchpad Settings from that search it opens precisely the same Touchpad dialog.  The only way to get to the "under the hood" touchpad settings on this machine is either using the Additional Settings link in that particular pane or using another method to invoke the Synaptics detailed mouse settings dialog.

And my checkbox for Disable internal pointing device when an external USB pointing device is attached is part of the Device Settings tab in the detailed mouse settings dialog.

Given the number of different models of both computers and mousepad hardware out there, dealing with these settings is very much dependent on the exact hardware.

I’m on an HP laptop right now. I pressed Windows key, typed “touchpad” (all one word) in the search and it came right up.  The first setting I landed on allows me to turn on and off the touchpad with a toggle. The second setting allows  you to chose whether the touchpad stays on when a mouse is plugged in.

And to be more specific about disabling it in control panel, you can just tap the windows key, and type in device manager, and bring that up, and you may need to right arrow into something to find the touch pad to disable it.

Either HIT compliant devices or maybe another section.

Enter on it when you find it and it puts you in its properties, and on the first page you should find something that is checked called

enable this device

and you can uncheck that, and tab to close or okay.

Hi all,

Is there a shortcut key to disable the mouse on an HP laptop? My particular laptop is HP ProBook 640 G4.

On Toshiba laptops I used To press the Fn key + f9 to toggle the mouse on and off. My HP Pro doesn’t seem to have this function and the HP help desk in Australia hasn’t been of much use either. They advised me to double press quickly at the bottom left every time I turn the laptop on but that seems to be hit and miss.

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and regards

I don't know why JAWS can't remember the labels but personally I think perhaps it's better to make a domain-specific script working only on this particular side. Can you share a web links so I can have a closer look if this is possible?

Might I ask what your mousepad software happens to be.

On mine, which uses Synaptics, there is an option in the Device Settings tab of Mouse Properties, under Tapping, where you can check a checkbox that will make a double tap at the upper left corner of the mousepad enable/disable it.  The section is called TouchPad Disable Zone Settings and the actual checkbox is Double Tap to Enable or Disable TouchPad.

What I'd recommend if you can't do it via a keyboard shortcut or specific corner double tap is to cut yourself a piece of thick-ish paper (file folder or the back of a note pad tends to work well) of the correct size to cover the mousepad area and tape it such that you can flip it open when you need the mousepad and flip it over the mousepad to cover it when you only want access to the left or right click buttons.  I've used that method for years on devices that give no other option, and it works beautifully.

Do you mean the touch pad?
I think someone wrote in that on one brand, they used FN + Escape to turn it off.
Otherwise, you can go to control panel and disable it there too.

Subject: A question for HP laptop users

Hi all,

 

Is there a shortcut key to disable the mouse on an HP laptop? My particular laptop is HP ProBook 640 G4.

 

On Toshiba laptops I used To press the Fn key + f9 to toggle the mouse on and off. My HP Pro doesn’t seem to have this function and the HP help desk in Australia hasn’t been of much use either. They advised me to double press quickly at the bottom left every time I turn the laptop on but that seems to be hit and miss.

 

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks and regards

Zel

Hi Marty, 

 

the site you mentioned could be made accessible with scripts by using domain-specific scripting. It's not difficult to do and if you or one of the other list members wants to know, I can describe how to do this so you or the others can use this approach on other sites too. But if you want to use the scripts only let me know and I will provide a link to the scripts.

 

All the best

Hi Marty, 

 

I don't know why JAWS can't remember the labels but personally I think perhaps it's better to make a domain-specific script working only on this particular side. Can you share a web links so I can have a closer look if this is possible?

I have tried to label buttons on a web media player for a radio station listen live using the Insert + F2 and arrowing down to Custom Label.  I am using JAWS 21 latest build and Windows 7 and Google Chrome.  The buttons work and read correctly until I close the page.  When I come back the next day, the buttons are back to just saying Button when I navigate to them.  Why don’t my labels stick?

moderated Re: Using bluetooth headphones for Zoom meetings and Jaws sending me to Coventry

CJ &AA MAY
 

Forgive me for this may have been discussed recently. But I have bught some buetooth headphones to use with Zoom meetings. With some help, the headphones now work with the Zoom meeting but not until I turn them off do I get any feedback from Jaws, so I am unable to take part in poles or interact with Zoom, unless I switch the headphones off.
Is there a way that I can use the headphones but still hear Jaws?

I’d be interested in the domain specific scripting instructions.
