Hi there:

VMware player will also support the quick install of windows.

Although honestly, once past install I generally use either remote

and forget about the VM console entirely.

Steve,
Well said, and I could not agree more. Anyone at this point that is having these type of problems with chrome I feel should consult someone who can take a look at their system, configuration, etc. Possibly a call to Microsoft accessibility services were consult with someone else’s something clearly passed in the corrupt with the system. Chrome at this point is the most popular browser by far and most people that I talk to on lists are having an excellent results with jaws

Audacity 2.3.0

David Bailes
 

Audacity is a free multi track audio editor, and version 2.3.0 has just been released. One of its new features is punch and roll recording, which enables you to easily correct mistakes immediately after you've made them.
This is a link to the Windows installer:
https://www.fosshub.com/Audacity.html/audacity-win-2.3.0.exe

I've updated my Jaws guide to Audacity to cover this release, and it's available here
http://vip.chowo.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/jaws/Audacity-2.3.0-Guide.html

Note that if you're using the Jaws script for Audacity, some parts of it don't yet work with this latest version of Audacity.

List Rules - Mon, 10/1/18 #cal-notice

main@jfw.groups.io Calendar <noreply@...>
 

List Rules

When:
Monday, 1 October 2018
12:00am to 1:00am
(GMT-04:00) America/New York

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin

You shouldn’t need to do that. There’s also another function in JAWS which might work in your situation.

 

Creating a Prompt

 

To create a prompt:

 

Move to the control for which the prompt is not properly spoken.

Press CTRL+INSERT+TAB.

A dialog box appears to walk you through the creation of the prompt. On the first page, enter the prompt for the control as you want JAWS to speak it,

and then select Next.

On the second page, enter the prompt for the control as you want JAWS to display it in Braille, and then select Next.

On the third page, specify a Tutor message to provide assistance with navigation or the use of this control. If you leave the Tutor message blank, the

default message is used. Select Finish to create your prompt.

How to Make Custom Labels

 

This is appropriate for labeling buttons.

 

1. Put focus on the item you want to label.

2. Press jaws + F2.

3. Arrow to custom label. This will open a window that allows you to assign a label that makes sense.

            I have no idea why JAWS might occasionally say "Outlook Express" if you're actually using Windows Live Mail, particularly one of the later versions, but if you know that's what you're using it's probably some peculiarity about timing and what gets exposed to the screen reader for reading at a split second in time.

            If you're using the Windows 10 Mail App I would hope there's never be mention of Outlook Express or Windows Live Mail in any way, shape, or form.

Usually if I f6 or shift f6, it will switch between the content window and the address bar and download files menus if I downloaded something;

In this case, f6 and shift f6 do nothing;

 

I was going to copy and past the xm page I was on when this happens,

But I can’t even go to alt+d to get to address bar;

And further, those same pages don’t allow me to do a ctrl+d to add to favorites?

It doesn’t seem to matter if the window is maximized or not;

Or is it strictly a chrome issue?
