Bill and all:

Stand by for more details on this.

I just called FS, and since I'm authorized for Jaws 16, I'm going to install it on this computer now.

Keith from FS says that my problem is that I'm running Internet Explorer 11, and IE 11 does not work well with Jaws 14--only 15 and 16.

I'll keep everyone posted, and please know that I appreciate all of your support.

No luck there either.

I'm wondering if my problem still relates to the Bing tool bar.

I thought I had it disabled, according to some instructions I had
received, but I think I was wrong because Bing is still mentioned
when I access the internet via Internet Explorer and Firefox.

I may try switching to another home page, just to see if that makes a

Hi,

Once you’re in forms mode try tab away from and then back to the edit
field… sometimes this will work.

Thanks,

Hello, everyone.



I'm still having issues typing characters into the edit box when on
the internet with my home Windows 7 PC.



I can arrow down or tab until I hear the forms mode sound, but when
I type, nothing gets entered into the edit box.



I had someone sighted check, and nothing gets entered onto the
screen when
I
do the typing in forms mode, even though the sound indicates I'm in
forms mode.



I find the issue both in Internet Explorer and in Firefox. And, I
have tried performing searches on several different web sites where
info needs to be entered into the search box.





Is there a Jaws or other setting I should check to troubleshoot the
issue?



For the record, I'm using Jaws 14 on this particular computer.



Thank you!



Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan

I'm really stumped on this one.

Hi, Tom. Have you checked in your Control Panel where you remove programs to see if the Bing Toolbar is listed in your installed programs?

If it is, I would remove it.

No luck there either.

I'm wondering if my problem still relates to the Bing tool bar.

I thought I had it disabled, according to some instructions I had
received, but I think I was wrong because Bing is still mentioned when I
access the internet via Internet Explorer and Firefox.

I may try switching to another home page, just to see if that makes a
difference.

Hi,

Once you’re in forms mode try tab away from and then back to the edit

Hello, everyone.



I'm still having issues typing characters into the edit box when on
the internet with my home Windows 7 PC.



I can arrow down or tab until I hear the forms mode sound, but when I
type, nothing gets entered into the edit box.



I had someone sighted check, and nothing gets entered onto the screen
when
I
do the typing in forms mode, even though the sound indicates I'm in
forms mode.



I find the issue both in Internet Explorer and in Firefox. And, I
have tried performing searches on several different web sites where
info needs to be entered into the search box.





Is there a Jaws or other setting I should check to troubleshoot the
issue?



For the record, I'm using Jaws 14 on this particular computer.



Thank you!

When you get into forms mode, press Control A to select all. Of course,
there isn't a thing to select, but do it anyway. Then press either the
backspace or delete key. Again, you're deleting nothing. Then try to type.

Used to work for me back in the day.

Adrian:

I tried your suggestion, but still no luck.

What is really strange is that when I type something into the text edit
field, it's clear that I'm in forms mode, but I can't doublecheck what I
have typed via the right and left arrow keys.

Visual assistance tells me that nothing appears on the screen.

Okay, yet another suggestion. Bill White may have included this with his F5
idea, but if so, I missed it and that message is now deleted. On several
websites I use regularly, I need to do the following:

Enter the text field in the way you already do, Tom.

Then refresh the screen with JAWS key+escape.

Type the text, then press the PC cursor to exit forms mode.

Try unloading/reloading JAWS. sometimes if it has been running a while it
has a brain cramp. Press insert-windows key-f4, and wait about fifteen
seconds. JAWS will shut itself down, clear its head, and restart.

and maybe it won't help at all, but maybe it will.

Good luck!

Thanks for the great suggestion.

However, I just checked, and Bing does not show up in my task manager.

You are correct: I'm running Jaws 14 with Windows 7 on this 64 bit PC.

I'm going to call F S today to see what they suggest.

Could upgrade to Jaws 16 here if needed since I have that on my work laptop,
although I'm not sure it would fix the issue.

Thanks again for the link.

Hi All,

I took Genni's advice, and called Netflix at 877-742-1480. As I expected, the person answering the general call line had no suggestions. She did however give me the email address for posting questions to their engineer group. The address is:
technicalresearch@...

I also recommend anyone who wishes to use Netflix contact them, either at the phone number below, or the email address above.

In case anyone is interested, below is what I wrote to Netflix. I am not claiming this as anything more than it is, a quick note of frustration, with some ideas for them. Here is what I wrote:


Dear Netflix,


I am blind, and use a Windows 7 laptop. Up until a week or so ago, your web site was extremely hard to navigate, but at least I could start a video. Now, after your web page design changes implemented a few days ago, I cannot even start a video.

I am using the latest update of JAWS version 16; JAWS is the world’s most widely used screen reading software for the blind. I tried accessing your service with IE, Firefox, and Chrome, but could not get a video to start. With IE, I cannot even activate my profile.

I am a reasonably experienced Internet user, and if there is a way to navigate your site with a screen reader, I have not figured it out. I am using the recommended common settings for JAWS, and I have no problems with some other video streaming services.

Back a few weeks ago, Netflix announced the addition of audio description. That is a great move, and I applaud you for that. However, in a very ironic twist, it is not possible for a blind person to select the audio described version, even though one is on the part of your site that contains only audio described programs. Why add that extra step? If one is on the audio description page, the user obviously wants the audio described version, so why not make that the default?

In general, there seems to be a huge gap between your marketing department and the technology group. Netflix marketing is advertising this new and wonderful audio description service, but a blind person simply cannot navigate the site, especially after the rollout of your new web page design.

In closing, I am using a Windows laptop, and I do not have a smart phone. The issues I am asking you to please fix are just for us old-fashioned blind folks using a Windows computer.

I know from experience that screen reader accessibility is a very narrow specialty and skill set, so if you do not have such an expert on staff, you could either hire one or contract with one of the accessibility consultant experts that will help you become and stay accessible.

I am happy to volunteer by helping you test any changes; I have done that in the past for a number of web service companies. Please advise, and much thanks.

Sincerely,
Tim Ford

You will be asked to go online to get a service code to speed things up. Not

I am operating with JAWS 14, Windows 7 and Internet Explorer. Netflix
changed things about 4 months ago that made navigation difficult without a
sighted person to use the mouse. Then, they changed again yesterday and I
cannot navigate their site at all.

It sounds as though your system tray is set to hide some icons. Below are
instructions for how to reveal them in Windows 7. I believe they originated
with David Bailes, and I added notes from my own experience when I went
through the process some years ago.

Open start menu properties with Win key, escape, alt-enter.

In the first dialog, tab to and press the Notification Area Customize
button. I found that the list of options appears when I shit-tabbed once.

The first item there is always turn on all icons. I pressed the spacebar on
it, then tabbed to Okay.

I tried this. After entering Insert F11, I have only 4 choices to arrow to.
They are Get Windows 10, Solve PC Issues, Network 5 Internet Access and

So, will the instructions not work for JAWS 14?

with David Bailes, and I added notes from my own experience when I went
through the process some years ago.

Open start menu properties with Win key, escape, alt-enter.

In the first dialog, tab to and press the Notification Area Customize
button. I found that the list of options appears when I shit-tabbed once.

The first item there is always turn on all icons. I pressed the spacebar on
it, then tabbed to Okay.

Subject: getting Skype off of task bar

Earlier today someone posted instructions for getting Skype off of your task
bar completely.

The first instruction was to access Select A System Tray Icon and arrow down
to Skype.

I tried this. After entering Insert F11, I have only 4 choices to arrow to.
They are Get Windows 10, Solve PC Issues, Network 5 Internet Access and
Speakers.

So, will the instructions not work for JAWS 14?

Hi, Tom. Have you checked in your Control Panel where you remove programs to see if the Bing Toolbar is listed in your installed programs?

If it is, I would remove it.

No luck there either.

I'm wondering if my problem still relates to the Bing tool bar.

I thought I had it disabled, according to some instructions I had received, but I think I was wrong because Bing is still mentioned when I access the internet via Internet Explorer and Firefox.

I may try switching to another home page, just to see if that makes a difference.

Once you’re in forms mode try tab away from and then back to the edit field… sometimes this will work.

Okay, yet another suggestion. Bill White may have included this with his F5 idea, but if so, I missed it and that message is now deleted. On several websites I use regularly, I need to do the following:

Enter the text field in the way you already do, Tom.

Then refresh the screen with JAWS key+escape.

Type the text, then press the PC cursor to exit forms mode.

Try unloading/reloading JAWS. sometimes if it has been running a while it
has a brain cramp. Press insert-windows key-f4, and wait about fifteen
seconds. JAWS will shut itself down, clear its head, and restart.

and maybe it won't help at all, but maybe it will.

Good luck!

Re: Can't Enter Text Into Forms Mode Field

Here's something that used to work for me when I had JAWS 10.

When you get into forms mode, press Control A to select all. Of course, there isn't a thing to select, but do it anyway. Then press either the backspace or delete key. Again, you're deleting nothing. Then try to type.

Used to work for me back in the day.

Re: Installation of today's new JAWS release

Understood. For the last few new releases, I'd found the automatic updater to work fine. Because of today's experience, I posted in the event others might have a similar problem and so would know to have support on hand in case they, too, had problems with the installation. Half a dozen listers posted they haven't! However, some did.

When I rebooted an hour ago, I was notified of a new JAWS release. Against
my better judgment, I went ahead with the installation. As usual, I was
required to reboot on completion. After about five minutes, I decided
something was wrong because the rebooting process got hung. So I shut down
the PC and restarted. It took a while, but eventually the PC came back to
life and JAWS reloaded. Ultimately a good result, but the experience brought
back bad memories of earlier JAWS releases. In the future, I'll make sure to
have sighted assistance nearby when I install a new JAWS release, just in
case. I wonder if this process went more smoothly for others.

Re: Keeping Up With Technology

Ed Marquette <marquette.ed@...>
 

Mitchell is right.
I too always upgrade. Sometimes, as in JAWS 13, I upgrade but
never use it. For instance, with JAWS 13, I used version 12 until
version 14 came out. For my dime, I thought JAWS 13 broke more
than it fixed, and sometimes versions of software will do that.
Still, it is such a hassle skipping versions that it makes sense,
at least for me, always to keep up to date.

"Skipping five or so versions" is not cheaper if, all of a sudden,
a new version comes out containing something you really want or
need. It would be cheaper if FS charged a flat upgrade fee, but
that's not the case; the older the version, the greater the cost
of upgrading to the newest release. That is why I always keep my
license up-to-date, even if a particular release does not contain
any new features I feel I'll need.

Subject: Re: Keeping Up With Technology

I can't really fault Freedom Scientific for this. Designers do
crazier and crazier things with software and websites every day,
and the people at FS aren't psychic. It's been this way since
before I got into computers I'm sure, and that was 1992. You can't
redesign software to fix a problem until the problem exists. So
what happens. A new version of Windows comes out, and then JAWS
has to be rewritten to handle the new stuff. A new version of
Office comes out replacing menus with ribbons, and again, the
software has to be rewritten to deal with the new layout. Netflix
changes their website, and again something has to be tweaked to
handle the new wrinkle. If the site designer would use Alt tags on
their graphics, graphical links wouldn't be an issue.

The other side of that coin is that you have to do your part, and
that means updating to the latest version of JAWS if you want the
latest fixes to the latest problems. I don't generally update to
every new release, because for what I do, I can usually skip five
or so versions.
It's cheaper that way, and I don't feel like I'm missing out. If
you're more on the cutting edge of technology, you may have to
update more frequently.

Which brings me to my final point of the night. People gripe about
the cost of assistive technology, but as rapidly as things change,
programmers are always having to work writing code to accommodate
those new features and problems. And unlike, say, Microsoft
Office, which people use by the millions and millions of copies,
assistive technology has an extremely small market share. People
want the very latest and greatest, and they want the software
authors to work for free.

Is what we have perfect? No. But if you were using JAWS back in
the days of Internet Explorer 3.0, you remember when the only way
to read a news article was with the JAWS cursor (there was no
virtual cursor), and you had to read three or four columns of
articles at one time with all the stories mixed together. We've
come soooooo far since 1997 when I started teaching people how to
use the Internet. When you step back eighteen years, it's really
quite amazing how rapidly our technology catches up with the rest
of the world compared to how long it used to take.

I'm sorry, Andre, but this did not work for me either.

Very strange and very frustrating.

This is a problem that I don't recall having, until relatively recently.

Hey Tom,

Starting at the top of the web page. I sometimes just hit the "e" key and
it takes me directly to an edit field. Then arrow up and down to open the
edit box. Repeat e key for multiple edit fields. Might be a long shot but
might work. Good luck.

Andre

Bill:

I tried this, but no joy.

I still get the higher click, which indicates to me that I'm in forms mode,
but I still can't enter text into a search or edit box.

Have tried this on google, and on several other search sites.

This is the case whether I tab or arrow down to the forms field.

Hi, Tom. I don't know that this would solve your particular issue, but,
sometimes, refreshing the page with the function key 5, F5, will bring up a
search box where you can enter data.

Hello, everyone.



I'm still having issues typing characters into the edit box when on
the internet with my home Windows 7 PC.



I can arrow down or tab until I hear the forms mode sound, but when I
type, nothing gets entered into the edit box.



I had someone sighted check, and nothing gets entered onto the screen
when
I
do the typing in forms mode, even though the sound indicates I'm in
forms mode.



I find the issue both in Internet Explorer and in Firefox. And, I
have tried performing searches on several different web sites where
info needs to be entered into the search box.





Is there a Jaws or other setting I should check to troubleshoot the issue?



For the record, I'm using Jaws 14 on this particular computer.



Thank you!



Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan
