moderated Google Chrome Extensions

David Kingsbury
 

Hi all,

 

I am trying to familiarize myself with using extensions in Chrome. Frankly, I am surprised at how few useful extensions seem to be out there. Do any of you have extensions that you use regularly that are accessible with JAWS? Please let me know.

 

Thanks,

David

Hi,
Another quick way to get to the Sort submenu is to hit your applications key, and then the letter O. You can then up/down arrow to A to Z, Z to A, etc, and hit enter on the way you want to sort.

Accessing Favourites in Microsoft Edge.

We've recently discovered what we consider to be quite a flaw in the use of Microsoft Edge.

When storing a site as a Favourite, you can no longer access it from the Favourites folder within File Explorer. A lot of people like to do this for several reasons. It is much easier to navigate the list, the Favourites can be searched, renamed, deleted, and you can just pull one of them out and put it on the Desktop if you use it very frequently. If you know how to use File Explorer, you can manage your Favourites.

If you have our Leasey or J-Say products, of course you have good solutions already in the form of LeaseyCuts and J-Say Shortcuts. They are working with Edge.

However, if you have purchased our new training course on the use of Microsoft Edge, you will also get some JAWS scripts which bring back this very useful utility of creating Favourites to web pages. Not only will they allow you to create the Favourites, but you can choose which folder they are saved into. We're thinking ahead here because if Microsoft decided to remove the default Favourites folder at any time, you can still use this feature. We've also given you a keystroke to quickly access your Favourites folder.

We can confidently advertise this feature because we have it working!

Enjoy it when it comes along!

moderated Re: Jaws 2020 lag with Outlook 365

David Goldfield
 

I do notice a delay from the time I press enter to open a message until the time when JAWS begins reading the message. I first thought that this was an Outlook issue but I don't notice this delay as much when performing the same task using NVDA. With the preview pane disabled navigating through messages in the message list is responsive but opening a message is not.

Subject: Jaws 2020 lag with Outlook 365

 

Hi group,

 

As I await a response from Vispero support, I’m wondering if anyone is experiencing the following:

 

I have noticed that the lag while using Outlook 365 with Jaws 2020 is even worse than with Jaws 2019. Arrowing through a message list, Jaws simply stops speaking. I can read the title of the window but that’s it. Then after 3-4 seconds I am able to proceed normally through the list. And it takes about 5 seconds before I can type a reply to a message.

A few months ago I asked about this lag while in a Outlook webinar with the Microsoft accessibility group. They acknowledged the problem but that was about all they said. I can hardly wait to see what Vispero’s take is.

 

Helpful feedback welcome.

Norma

I've used an 80-cell display in a work environment, and I can definitely recommend it. More cells are better (within a reasonable limit, of course).

In theory, pressing alt+1 should take you to the first item in the QAT, alt+2 to the second, etc. My experience is that that only works sometimes.

I have noticed that the lag while using Outlook 365 with Jaws 2020 is even worse than with Jaws 2019. Arrowing through a message list, Jaws simply stops speaking. I can read the title of the window but that’s it. Then after 3-4 seconds I am able to proceed normally through the list. And it takes about 5 seconds before I can type a reply to a message.

A few months ago I asked about this lag while in a Outlook webinar with the Microsoft accessibility group. They acknowledged the problem but that was about all they said. I can hardly wait to see what Vispero’s take is.

Subject: Jaws 2020 lag with Outlook 365

 

Hi group,

 

As I await a response from Vispero support, I’m wondering if anyone is experiencing the following:

 

I have noticed that the lag while using Outlook 365 with Jaws 2020 is even worse than with Jaws 2019. Arrowing through a message list, Jaws simply stops speaking. I can read the title of the window but that’s it. Then after 3-4 seconds I am able to proceed normally through the list. And it takes about 5 seconds before I can type a reply to a message.

A few months ago I asked about this lag while in a Outlook webinar with the Microsoft accessibility group. They acknowledged the problem but that was about all they said. I can hardly wait to see what Vispero’s take is.

 

Helpful feedback welcome.

Norma

Hi again Alan,

 

It worked, but there are a few oddities.

 

If I want it to work in my flashcard app, the top line needs to say “side 1 in A1, and “side 2” in b1.

The remainder of the items also need to take this format.

 

Is there an easy way to do this?

 

I’ll attach the file so you can see how it looks now.

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

You might try saving the web page as a single html file and opening that file in Excel and see what you get.

That is a bit more involved than what could be handled easily via Email.

What is the web page?

I'll see if I can help with this.

Hi,

I know this isn’t directly related to jaws, but I’m using jaws 2020.

 

I’d like an efficient way to learn the commands for the Focus line of braille displays, since those items are covered on the certification exam.

 

I found a page that contains several tables of these commands, and would like to get all this data into a spreadsheet.

 

Does anyone know how to do this?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

Did you try to add Jaws to your startup folder?

If not you may try to create a CMD to start Jaws and add that CMD to your startup!

I’m glad you don’t have a problem on your system, but do realize that every system is a little different and on some systems this is an issue which Freedom Scientific is aware of.
