Re: Does JFW Work With Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Premium?

I am using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium with no problems. Works great.
I have been running this for the last two years or so and am now running the
latest version of Jaws 17.

Re: IRC

Good point. Mailing lists will always be accessible, because screen reader vendors will always have the need to either support web browsers and/or mail clients, since the web and email is a critical basic need for the blind to have internet access, especially given that both are needed to maintain employment. The more I think about it, I also see mailing lists as a form of chat, especially when the settings are to receive each email as it comes in. People can reply on their smartphones, which is similar to sending a text back, only it is an email.

Irssi should work well. I've used it under Linux, which is its home
environment.

There's reported to be a new feature coming in a Windows 10 update later
in
the year that will allow installation and use of Ubuntu Linux
executables,
based on an arrangement between Canonical and Microsoft. This should
include
better terminal support and the ability to run Linux terminal programs,

I hope this will be accessible with JAWS.

Re: Footnotes, was Reading headers and footers in word 2010 with JAWS 14

Steve Griffiths
 

Hi Jason,

I've done a bit more playing with this. for the Alt + Shift + C method to work, the document has to be in Draft view (what used to be called Normal view). The more usual view, and that preferred by sighted users because it shows things like margins, headers, footers and graphics, is Print view. Press Alt + Ctrl + N to put a document into Draft view, and Alt + Ctrl + P to put it into Print view.

If you are in Print view, when you've finished editing a footnote, you have to arrow up until you're in the document again, and then you can use the JAWS shortcut Insert + Shift + F to get a list of footnotes; press Enter on the one you want and you'll move to that part of the document. On my PC, when my cursor moves from the footnote pane to the document, JAWS 17 says "space run at column one". I have no idea what that means!

I tried Alt+Shift+c while in a footnote pane (Word 2013), but it didn't appear to have any effect. I did use the JAWS pass-through key and was prompted for the key to be passed through.

Thank you, Steve.

Microsoft's documentation says "Remove the document window split" -
not an obvious command for this purpose.

For MS-Word 2016, they also document Alt+Shift+< and Alt+Shift+> to
move to previous/next footnote, respectively.

Re: web site weirdness

 

Mark,

           I took a look at this webpage under Chrome and using NVDA, and it's not just you but it's also not a JAWS or Firefox problem, either.

           There are no links or headings on this page, nor any navigation landmarks.  The center of the page is a large "hotspot" that invokes a routine named movebanner.  If you click on the left side of the banner it takes you to their imaging products website, http://plustek.com/usa/, and if you click on the right side it takes you to their security products website, http://plusteksecurity.com/.   That page is completely inaccessible from any technique I know of, including mouse gliding over the page which gives you nothing.  What's even worse is that while the imaging products website defaults to USA (for me, anyway) it presents a pop-up window to allow you to select a different country, which you have to do before you have access to the actual website content, and I waited and waited for any indication that this pop-up was there and that you needed to interact with it and I gave up listening.

           The existence of the checkbox is to make the completely inaccessible page your default landing page for Plustek, I guess for people who might constantly be wanting to go to either their imaging site or their security products site.  If one or the other is where you'd want to go all the time there'd be no reason to land on this page, ever.  For someone who's using a screen reader there's absolutely no reason you'd ever want to land on this page, period.

Re: Just installed Jaws 17. Do I need to download Vocalizer voices again?

Георги Ламбов <obichamlegiona@...>
 

No, in my opinion the vocalizer voices: expressive or direct which I'm using are the same for jaws10 and later. But if you are changing the jaws version being installed on your computer, you need to reinstall the voices and configer them again: the profiles for example if you make them.

Re: Getting JAWS error message of "Unknown script called for links" with the new JAWS version and Internet Explorer Version 11

Tim Ford
 

Thank you for the suggestion.  Ironically, I installed this most recent update by using the update feature in JAWS.  I have had several aborted installation updates with the JAWS feature, and my usual practice is to download and install the full update software.  I had forgotten about that until you mentioned it below.  I will now follow what from now on will be my standard practice.

Tim,

            I will simply offer the solution that FS always offers me when these sorts of issues crop up:  Download the latest JAWS from their website, uninstall what's on your machine, and reinstall with the downloaded software.  If possible, shut the machine down completely after the uninstall and prior to the reinstall.

            This actually works as often as not, but at least if you've done this already you can say, from the outset, "I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with the software on the website and it's made no difference."

            You are quite unlikely to get any traction with FS tech support until/unless you try this first - at least if my experiences are any indication.
