moderated Re: Using JAWS to create a label for a button on a web site, which has no text label

Marty Hutchings
 

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?

Hi Dave,
 
Here are 2 sets of steps:
 
From: Carlos
Place focus on the link or button to which you want to assign a label, press Insert+F2, and select
"Custom Label" from the list.
This has been in JAWS going back at least several versions.  These are different features for doing similar things.  The "Prompt Creator" and "Graphics
Labeler" are used for labeling controls and graphics in applications.  The "Custom Label" option is used for labeling HTML elements like buttons and links
on webpages.
Carlos
 
From: Mauricio Molina
When on the Internet, once you locate a button without a label, press JAWS / Insert Key, Control, + Tab.  You will then be asked to type in a label.

Hello everyone:

The other day, I accessed a web site, which on the whole, was very
accessible.

Unfortunately, there were 2 problems. the first, was the link, which took
you to the shopping basket page. This link had no text lable, to tell a user
of a screen reader the purpose of the link. The link is a standard HTML
coded link.

the second is a standard HTML button, which also does not have a text label.
This button is for removing an item from the shopping basket.

My question is, is there a way within JAWS, where you can attach labels to
specific links and buttons on an individual web site?

The link and button on this web site are not graphics

Thanks in anticipation.

The only thing I would advise is that, when you download Adobe Reader, unless you explicitly want any of the bundled software, uncheck the following items before downloading,

 

install the free McAfee Security Scan Plus utility to check the status of my PC security. It will not modify existing antivirus program or PC settings.

install McAfee Safe Connect to keep my online activities and personal info private and secure with a single tap.

Install the Acrobat Reader Chrome Extension By checking the above, I agree to the automatic installation of updates for Acrobat Reader Chrome Extension

Listers: After a hard drive change, I need to download an adobe reader. As a jaws user is there some choice of reader that I should be aware of?

 

Maybe all Adobe readers are the same.

Hi Rick,
I don't know Jesus Christ as Savior, but I'll give it a shot.
First, did you go to the address bar and take out the WWW and replace it with mbasic
?
The mbasic page is much easier to use.
You just do alt D and press home, and right arrow past the WWW and back space it out and replace it with mbasic and press enter.
HTH.

Dear Listers:

 

Using JAWS, how do you go about finding your memory page on Facebook?  In the directions it says to go to the main menu on the left side of the page and then select On This Day, but I do not, nor can I figure out, how to do this using JAWS.  Can a good Samaritan out there who knows Jesus Christ as Savior step in and help me?

Another way is to press F12 to save the document. You will get a message that says this is a protected document. Tab once to the button that asks if you want to unprotect the file. Hit the spacebar and you are ready to go.

Open the document, hit alt+f and tab to the left to file. Go down to info go
across to protected view. Open it and that should work.

This is probably not the best way to do it, but if you hit control S to save
it, Word  will say that it is in protected view and saving is disabled. If
you tab over to "enable saving" it will take it out of protected view. I
think there is a direct command to protect and unprotect, but I don't know
what it is.

My guide from when I was helping the trainers at the VA was to curse at Word.
Press alt followed by F followed by I followed by E 

This always reminded me of the song in Camelot "Fie on Virtue".
BTW F stands for file, i for information and e for enable editing.

Take care!

If you only deal with documents (whether Word, Excel, etc.) from sources you know and trust Protected View is just a PITA.  I always turn it off.
