Tim: There are several ways in which to get stuck while you set up an Echo Dot. the best way, I have found, is to call Amazon’s disability line: (888) 283-1678. That got me through no problem, Nd I’ve set up two with their assistance.

Hello Listers,

 

I just received an early Christmas present from a dear friend, an Echo Dot.  I know this is a bit off-topic for this list, but I am hoping someone has instructions so I can set it up?  Also, any set of commands I can perform after setup.  Thanks!

moderated Problem with Outlook 2016 calendar

kevin meyers
 

 

Hello, I use the most recent versions of windows10 and Jaws2020. I’m using outlook 2016. For about a week somelthing happen to my calendar. I use to be able to tab from one appointment to the next. Now when I tab jaws says day view and a bunch of other text. Sometimes it will read the appointment at the end of the line. Some appointments on the calendar start with the text related to the appointment. I talked with Microsoft Accessibility and got no where. Any thoughts of what might be creating the problem? I should say I did a easy repair and that didn’t help. Now what? Kevin

I'm not familiar with Google Docs. But maybe try ctrl-s inside the PDF itself to save it locally. You could also try context menu options on a relevant link, there should be a save link option in your browser.

Subject: Downloading a pdf with JAWS Google chrome drive pdf viewer

Hello,
I am trying to download a pdf that opens in drive pdf viewer with Google classroom JAWS2020 but there is no download button to be found.
I tried pressing alt with f to see if I can get a file menu and also to disable the virtual cursor in order to tab around and see if I can locate a download button but again I cannot find it.
I know that Google has made changes to drive and the layout has gotten a bit more complicated so I am wondering if anyone has steps to locate this button?
I pressed enter on the actions button and details and I was able to see that viewers do have permission to download the file.
I know that the pdf can be opened in Google docs but I would prefer to be able to download the pdf since there is mathematical content I need to email out and I want it displayed correctly.
Thank you in advance for any responses.

For what it is worth, Jaws 2020 August release for me is mostly useless in those windows. 

However, I just tried it with the Jaws 2021 beta and everything reads fine.

With Jaws 2020 if you use the Touch cursor things read, but how to activate something is a mystery to me.

I usually turn off Jaws and launch Narrator when I am in Windows settings since it reads fine.

Hello All
I have had to replace my C-drive and therefore had to reinstall Jaws. I think I used to be able to read Windows 10 info such as the Action Center and there was a edit box displayed when you went to settings using the Windows-key + I command with Jaws 2020. But I can only read them with Jaws cursor now and the left and right mouse click do not always work.

 

Is everybody else reading these pages OK?
If so, does anybody know what Jaws setting I need to change to allow reading of these pages again?

 

TIA
Phil

I have both of these Keyboards also And like Seagirt I thinkThe G 613 needs heavier springs under the buttons... The logitech K 780 is a great keyboard and it is my everyday keyboard. Until I got the G 613 I've never had a keyboard with two windows keys and application key so I don't miss them.

I do not have a preference. The one I have at present, is a standard keyboard. It only has one Windows key. While it has an Applications key, it does not work with my HP Pavillion DV6 laptop, so I always need to use SHIFT+F10, to open the Applications menue. The set of keys between the main keyboard and the number pad, only has 5 keys, With the DELETE key being the size of the INSERT and DELETE keys, very inconvenient, especially if you need to use the insert key.

First off do you want a mechanical or standard keyboard? I have both.The mechanical one I have is  a little light on the touch. I'd like it to be stiffer my standard Logitech keyboard isNice but Nice bud I would use The mechanical one more if the keys were a little stiffer.

 G skill mechanical keyboards are nice just make sure you get the stiffer keys. And of course logitech K-series are excellent. Both brands of keyboards have ones that do both Bluetooth and wireless with a little dongle.
