Hi all!

I am a Windows 10 insider, and I love Windows 10 1809 with JAWS 2019!

In the mail app, JAWS 2019 now reads the suggestions as you type an email address into the edit box.

JAWS 2019 is very snappy in the settings app.

You will have to turn off the background apps you do not want to run.

Narrator, is much improved in Edge!

I just used that combination to listen to YouTube videos!

With Narrator, the Twitter app is almost accessible. We are getting close.

The emoji in Windows 10 is very accessible with Narrator!

JAWS2019, reads progress bars in downloads in Chrome much better in Windows 10 1809.

Chrome works much better with JAWS, over all, in Windows 10 1809.

You will just love it!

I couldn't click on the link. Was it turned off? Also, does QuickBooks have
to be purchased? If so, how much does it cost?

Don't store credit card numbers on your computer!! If you do, you will have
to be pci compliant and that is a pain in the neck. Use a processing
service instead, like stripe.com -- for a low volume operation this is quite
nice.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I know this might sound complicated, but I'm wondering, do any of you
JAWS members out there know if there's a software that works with
JAWS, with which I can manage customer accounts? When I start my
company
making products and services that are accessible for people of all
abilities, I want to be able to have an accessible software for managing
customers' information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, order
numbers, and receipts, for when they want to purchase a product or service
from my company. I guess you could say I'm thinking of a software for
management of customers' orders. Are there any good business management
softwares out there that work well with JAWS?

Below is an article about the testing of the national alert system on October 3.

If you get a 'Presidential Alert' on your cellphone Wednesday, it's legit

The Federal Emergency Management Agency will test its emergency alert system for mobile phones, which is expected to reach about 225 million devices.
BY COLLEEN LONGASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON - About 225 million electronic devices across the United States will wail and buzz Wednesday afternoon as the Federal Emergency Management Agency
conducts an emergency alert test.

A tone will sound at 2:18 p.m., similar to that of an Amber Alert or flood watch warning, and the subject of the alert will read: "Presidential Alert"
and text will say: "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed."

It is the first test of the national wireless emergency system by FEMA. The message will be broadcast by cell towers for 30 minutes, so it's possible some
people may get it at a different time. The alerts will sound as long as the device is turned on - even if it's on mute or do not disturb, and it may also
appear on smart watches, officials said.

A second alert on television broadcast and radio will go off at 2:20 p.m. The TV and radio alert has been tested for several years.

The system test is for a high-level presidential alert that would be used only in a nationwide emergency. It is being completed in coordination with the
Federal Communications Commission. FEMA officials said Tuesday they would share test result data on how the testing went with mobile carriers to help ensure
the system works well in a true emergency.

Phones with mobile carriers that participate in the wireless emergency alert system, which sends out information on hazardous weather, or missing children,
will get the alert. FEMA officials estimate it will reach about 75 percent of all mobile phones in the country, including phones on all of the major carriers.

The wireless alert system launched in 2012. While users can opt out of messages on missing children and natural disasters, they can't opt out of the presidential
alerts, which are issued at the direction of the White House and activated by FEMA.

FEMA officials said the administration can only send such an alert for national emergencies or if the public were in peril, rules outlined in a 2006 law,
and they say it can't be used for any sort of personal message from the president.

A group of New Yorkers filed a lawsuit in federal court in New York arguing they should not be compelled to receive the alerts under their right to free
speech.

Re: Navigating Favorites With Chrome

 

I am not using full screen mode, it’s just that for me and apparently at least one other person Alt+F does nothing whereas just pressing the Alt key brings up the menu. I am certainly not going to uninstall Chrome and reinstall it, disable extensions por anything of that sort. I honestly don’t care if Alt or Alt+F brings up the menu.

Any ideas?

I would uninstall the Google Chrome Browser, followed by a system Restart, then reinstall Chrome and see if that fixes it.

I don't doubt that there are occasional webpages that contain scripting that hoses up the normal behavior of Chrome (and, potentially, other browsers) but you seem to be experiencing this far more frequently than anyone else does.  There are sometimes idiosyncratic corruptions in a Chrome installation and an uninstall/reinstall can sometimes fix those.

If you use Chrome with extensions, I would consider starting up with all extensions disabled and see if the behavior persists.  If it doesn't, then use the "disable half" of your extension and restart Chrome to see if the behavior persists.   If it does, then reenable all the ones you had disabled and disable the other half.  When you restart, you should have the behavior disappear.  Then start re-enabling by halves/disabling by halves until you zero in on the extension that's the culprit.

It's the same concept as the Windows clean boot process where you keep doing stepwise elimination by halves to zero in on an issue-causing startup process.

an idea, but you probably thought of this.

first thing to check is the keyboard layout that the screen reader is
set to use. the laptop layout should be set for the laptop, see if that
makes a difference.

second, you can enable keyboard help and press that key to see if it is
identified as a home key. if you're using JAWS or NVDA, the command is
insert+1 above the letters. this is a toggle to enable or disable the
feature.

Hey guys,

OK, got a good 1 here. So i haven't used the actual keyboard on my
laptop on ages. I usually use an external 1, but tonight i am using
the internal keyboard. For some reason, i am on a web page, and i
pressed alt home, or what i thought was alt home, and that usually
goes back to my home page. Not on the actual laptop keyboard, it's
not working. puzzled to say the least. At the end of the function
keys, there are a bunch of other keys, and atleast from my experience,
the 1st 1 of those keys is home. Am i missing something here, any
ideas? It works fine on my external keyboard.

Thanks,
Jed

Hi, Jed. The Home key should say Home if it is pressed, if Access Keys are set to speak. If you're running NVDA, did the Home key speak before? If it is not speaking now, it's not the home key. Usually on a laptop, the Home key is the FN key plus the Left Arrow.

Any ideas?

I would uninstall the Google Chrome Browser, followed by a system Restart, then reinstall Chrome and see if that fixes it.

I don't doubt that there are occasional webpages that contain scripting that hoses up the normal behavior of Chrome (and, potentially, other browsers) but you seem to be experiencing this far more frequently than anyone else does.  There are sometimes idiosyncratic corruptions in a Chrome installation and an uninstall/reinstall can sometimes fix those.

If you use Chrome with extensions, I would consider starting up with all extensions disabled and see if the behavior persists.  If it doesn't, then use the "disable half" of your extension and restart Chrome to see if the behavior persists.   If it does, then reenable all the ones you had disabled and disable the other half.  When you restart, you should have the behavior disappear.  Then start re-enabling by halves/disabling by halves until you zero in on the extension that's the culprit.

It's the same concept as the Windows clean boot process where you keep doing stepwise elimination by halves to zero in on an issue-causing startup process.
