Re: More activity

yes, i agree.  if it is relative information, great.  but the garbage talk should be left for chat sites and the like.

Why ask for more activity if you left another group because of all the activity.

I much rather have a group where posts are fewer but relevant and where there is not a bunch of unrelated chatter.

I am on the Viphone group, for example, and compared to the traffic on that group years ago it’s positively quiet now which works just fine for me, being on these lists is not my main job and while I also learn stuff I probably answer more questions than I ask. I enjoy that, but if the traffic on a group gets to be too much and people constantly ask simple questions which they could find the answers to very easily if they just took a few minutes to search the archives or Google then it becomes a problem. The exception maybe is when somebody is really completely new to all of this stuff and they just don’t yet have the skills on how to find this information on their own. I don’t even know how often somebody asked something and I provided an answer which maybe I didn’t know in my head, but which took me 2 minutes to find doing a Google search. One example from the Viphone list is when somebody mentions an app which maybe I also never heard about and then people ask “What does this app do” or “Is this a free or paid app”. All it takes is to do a Google search for “App name on the App Store” or “App Name on iTunes” and typically the first search result is a link to the app in question on the app store where you can read the description, release notes from the latest update and whether the app is free or, If not, how much it costs.

Activity on any list is directly dependent on the subscribers, and on good ones there will always be lulls as well as sudden crushes of activity, particularly in the advent of new releases.

This list is far from silent, but nor is it frenetic most of the time.

Another version of David Moore's excellent Chrome Browser Tutorial with headings

Richard Turner
 

Greetings,

Since David gave blanket permission to put his tutorial out there and everywhere, and I don’t like using bookmarks in Word, I did a version with Headings.  Pressing insert+f6 brings up the headings list and you can then arrow down and hit enter on the section you want.

I also did a tiny bit of grammar editing and one or two typos. 

I put it on my web site, and here is the direct link to the word docx file:

Re: The best accessible RSS-reader to Google Chrome with JAWS 2019

Gerald Levy
 


To be perfectly blunt, the most accessible RSS feed reader is still the one built into IE.  Not the one for Chrome or the one for Firefox.  The RSS reder built into Thunderbird is also pretty accessible.  There may be a few third party
RSS feed readers that are JAWS accessible, but I haven't found any that are as accessible or convenient as the one built into IE.

having Jaws read cell contents

Tom <tomcat509@...>
 

Hi,

 

Using: latest W10 nd latest Jaws 2019

 

While in a web site table, how can Jaws be made to read the contents of a cell letter by letter when required?

 

By pressing the arrow keys, Jaws reads the cell contents in full but sometimes it is useful to study the cell contents character by character. How can this be achieved?

 

Thanks

Re: need some help with being able to read a map with jaws

Is there a way you can input the latitude and longitude in the search?
How would you do it?

List Rules - Fri, 03/01/2019 #cal-notice

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

List Rules

When:
Friday, 1 March 2019
12:00am to 1:00am
(GMT-05:00) 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

Hi, Tom. I don't know why your enhanced security tab is saying unavailable. I can get to my enhanced security settings just fine. I am using Windows 10, and I am using JAWS 2019.1901.66, home use edition.

Well, it was an adobe setting. In the security(enhanced) settings,
protected mode needed to be turned off for Jaws to work properly. I
have no idea what turned it back on, and why the reinstallation didn't
put things to rights, but there it is for future reference.

Well, this one has me beat. I'm running the latest version of both

pdf's. They show up blank and jaws ocr won't start. It is working fine
on my laptop. NVDA reads pdf's fine on my desktop, but now jaws won't
do it at all. I've repaired Jaws and that didn't help. Any ideas?
