Reading and editing Mails in Outlook Office 365

Hello Everyone,

 

How can I read and edit my mails in Outlook Office 365. Switching the virtual cursor on and off is not doing the trick barrier-free for me satisfactorily. I would greatly appreciate any help.

 

Best regards,

Re: Tutorial for Google Chrome?

David, this was so very very useful.

Where can we get hold of your others?

I’d be happy to purchase some of them.

Also, are any of the google chrome add-ons particularly accessible with Jaws?

Thanks so very much again. I feel much less intimidated with Google now and have the confidence to start working with it.

Hi!

I wrote a text tutorial for using the Google Chrome browser.

I will paste a drop box link right below, that will allow you to download the text tutorial right to your computer.

It is just a plain text file, and I take you through all that a screen reader will say as you do each step.

It will help a lot.

Re: Migrating to Firefox from Internet Explorer

 

That’s how everybody is different, I use Chrome 99% of the time and if it had sounds for everything I clicked on or navigated and I could turn them off that is the first thing I would do, it would drive me nuts.

I have been looking to migrate over for a little while now and now you can’t get navigational sounds. Agreed that it is taking a step backwards. I was getting ready to switch to Firefox for teaching purposes as IE is going to quickly get more and more inaccessible. Navigational sounds are not a deal breaker but they are nice to have.

No, there is no other add-ons for Firefox Quantum that plays these additional sounds, nor is this feature built in.  Besides Navigational Sounds, other add-ons like Webvisum and Plain Old Favorites also do not work with FirefoxQuantum, which, as far as I’m concerned, represents a major step backwards in terms of accessibility with JAWS.  And Firefox Quantum only works with JAWS 2018 and not with earlier versions.  The last version of Firefox that still works with Navigational Sounds and the other add-ons is Firefox 52 ESR.

Hi, Joe. Navigational Sounds is no longer available through the AddOn Manager of Firefox. This is because Navigational Sounds no longer works with Firefox Quantum (version 60 and up).

 

Instead,

1.  open Firefox.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus A to open the AddOn Manager.

3. Tab to the list of available categories within the AddOn Manager.

4. The category you want to open is Extensions. When you find it, press ENTER.

5. TAB to the search box and enter

 

download sound.

 

6. The AddOn you want to install is:

 

Download Sound1.4By

BPS

Plays a sound or utters a text using speech synthesis when a download is completed.This simple extension plays a sound or utters a text using speech synthesis

when a download is completed.

 

This is a deceptive description, because, as installed, it just plays a simple ding sound, once the AddOn is installed.

 

This is the best way to get a download sound for Firefox downloads.

Re: Acronis True Image backup software

Jason White
 

Can you use System Image (included in Windows) to create the backup, then use a Windows installation drive with Microsoft Narrator to restore it?

I would expect System Image to be accessible with JAWS. There's also a command line version, apparently, called wbadmin. The restoration process may be possible with a Windows installer and Microsoft Narrator.

On 8/13/18, 13:27, "Gerald Levy" <main@jfw.groups.io on behalf of bwaylimited@...> wrote:


The bottom line is that only a few image backup programs are accessible with
JAWS, and even then, only the procedure for creating a backup image on an
external hard drive is accessible. The procedure for restoring the backup
image thusly created, , however, is totally inaccessible because there is no
speech during the restoration procedure, which usually involves creating a
rescue CD whose interface is inaccessible with any screen reader. Image for
Windows is supposedly the most accessible image backup program, and somebody
on another list devised instructions for creating a talking PE rescue disk
to use with it, but he died last year, and nobody else has been able to
figure out how to get this talking PE disk to work on a consistent basis.
To my knowledge, there is really no way to restore a backup image from True
Image or any other backup image program without sighted help unless you are
a very advanced techie.

Hi John,
No, it doesn't appear to be any more accessible than when you tried it.
I've sent a note to their customer service recommending that they check with
Microsoft on how to meet the accessibility standards and the "VFO Group" to
see about hiring them to script it.

I hope that accomplishes something, but I do not plan to hold my breath.

Re: Correcting the way my synthesizer says something

 

Just in case the original strings could contain a space or spaces between the 'v' or 'V' and the digit sequence, e.g.:

                          v 5      or  V 2.10.7

use the following for the regular expression:   (v|V)\s*([0-9]+[\.0-9]*)
and the same replacement as I gave before.

Re: found 2 versions of Jaws installed on pc

Bill White
 

Hi again, David. Did you ever wonder why, when you install most programs,
the new installation writes over the old version, but not with JAWS?

As Mike said, there are often times where an older version of JAWS works
better with a certain application than the newest version. Therefore, I keep
two versions of JAWS on my computers. I can usually tell by the time I have
had JAWS for a year if the applications I use with it work well. Until I
familiarize myself with the behavior of the newest version of JAWS, I don't
throw out the old one.

Re: Correcting the way my synthesizer says something

 

Robin,

         This is an instance where the use of regular expression for pattern matching in the voice dictionary comes in very handy, and I think JAWS supports this, but I don't have it handy at the moment.  I know NVDA does, and I could swear that I needed to do a regular expression match in the past for one of my graduate student clients who was reading technical documents where "unusual sequences" were butchered by JAWS, but I could be confusing this with NVDA, too.  What follows applies as far as a regular expression match regardless of where you might be trying to use one.

         If you wanted to capture the lowercase  or uppercase letter 'v' followed immediately by some digit followed by any other digits or dots, until you hit a space, the regular expression would be:

                     (v|V)([0-9]+[\.0-9]*)

and to get that to read as "version" followed by the sequence of digits you'd use the following in the replacement field:

                      version \2

This would cause v5, or V3.7.21.7 to be matched, and in the case of the first be read as version five and the second version 3.7.21.7

A discussion of regular expression syntax is way beyond what can be done in a forums post, and if you're of a "programmer's mind" there are myriad online references to both learn about the syntax, what it means, how to use it, and to test it out.   I just used the sites regex101.com to test out the regular expression as I put it together and regexr.com for a syntax reference.  I'm rusty, so it took me a while to figure out how to capture any sequence of digits or digits interspersed with periods/dots and have that sequence viewed as a single unit.

Hi David,
 
Like Bill I keep multiple versions of Jaws on all our computers.  With both our Windows 7 & 10 computers I keep Jaws 16 thru J2018 installed.  You never know when you will run into something where an older or newer version will give you better results.

Correcting the way my synthesizer says something

Van Lant, Robin
 

Hello,

I understand how to change a basic pronunciation of a word.  What I cannot figure out is where it is making an assumption of an abbreviation.  Here is the example today.  At work, I have a set of Excel files where, each time the file is updated, we add a “v” then a number (without spaces) before the Excel file extension to represent version 1, version 2, and so on.  When arrowing through the Explorer window to find the file I want, JAWS is reading the “v5” as “volt 5”.  I can understand this if I were writing “9v” as in a battery type, but am surprised that it is getting converted when in the other order.  It’s not work my time to add a dictionary entry for each possible combination of “v” and a number, so I’m just curious how others deal with these little oddities, or do you just get used to the quirks.   I am using Vocalizer Nathan.
