Re: sending a screen shot

Hey guys. OK so i found where it stores the screen shots. However
something very strange. When i am arrowing up and down through the
list, it doesn't say the file name. It's under user, my profile, and
under videos. I know there are screen shots in there but jaws isn't
reading the names of the files. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jed

Are you running Windows 10? If so then just press Windows
Key+Printscreen, go to your pictures folder > screenshots to look for
the file.
If you are still on Windows 7 tyhen taking a screenshot is a bit more
complicated, you have to press Printscreen, if I remember correctly this
will take the screenshot, but you then have to open Paint and paste it
in there, then save it as a file.
If you have OneDrive you can also configure OneDrive to take
screenshots, but as long as you are on Windows 10 there is really no
need for that.

Looking for a Jaws accessible appointment reminder app/service

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

I was wondering if there are any business owners out there or folks who deal with subcontractors and have to manage appointments and confirmations.

I’ve got a business where I broker out work and need to confirm appointments and so on.

So far, with Outlook (Office 365 for business) and Google Voice, I’ve been managing it with emails and texts, but I’d like to get something a little more automated and reduce the manual workload. Right now, it’s juggle emails, check and cross check who’s confirmed, follow up with a vendor who hasn’t confirmed, etc.

I’m also in the process of taking on a contract for a much larger workload and would really like to have something in place before things become unmanageable. I am a heavy Outlook user and yes, I know there are meeting and reminder functions in Outlook, but my Outlook calendar notes have information such as contract numbers other vendor info and stuff in general I’d prefer not to share with my sub vendors for their assigned appointments as there’s no reason for them to see that sort of data and my notes.

In any event, does anyone know of anything out there that is Jaws friendly and as a plus integrates with the Office eco system? Outlook, etc.?

I’m sure some of you have had experience with this sort of thing. Where you may get an email or text reminding you of an upcoming engagement with the option to click confirm/decline or if texting, reply 1 for yes or 2 for no and so on.

As an idea, I’ll likely be working with upwards of 300 appointments a month throughout the state of California. So anything that can automate this task is something I’m very interested in.

Below is one such option I was checking out. I don’t mind paying as long as it accomplishes what I need and cuts down on my having to chase down confirmations. https://www.goreminders.com/pricing

Again, any input or observations and experience would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Cristóbal

Yep, and both take it to the clipboard, so as was previously mentioned you have to open the image processing program of your choosing, paste, then save.

Under Windows 10, as of Version 1803, you can take both a full screen screen shot with WinKey+PrtSc, and the resulting screen shot will be saved in Pictures\Screenshots, and a windowed screen shot with WinKey+Alt+PrtSc, which on the vast majority of machines I've done it on still gets saved in Videos\Captures and the actual capture itself is a bit slower.

It could be used, but I don't usually see much difference between this, and "Infer reading order from document." I think that "Read document from left to right" is usually the default of "Infer reading order from document".

The document is pretty straight forward, but, Adobe freezes in the

However, NVDA doesn’t like it either.

Acrobat is always kind of sluggish.

If it’s not a scanned image document and is straightforward in general
(iE, an etext or something), you can use qRead. It’s a nice little
programme that very quickly opens pdf and epub files. I like it because
it’s very fast. However it doesn’t have many of the features Adobe has.
It’s generally meant for books or similar context with straightforward,

Subject: May need alternative to Adobe Acrobat Reader

I found out about it when reviewing the options before a document is
processed. It has “infer reading order from document”, Read document
from left to right, top to bottom” and “Read from raw print stream”.

Usually, I look at the options in programs, and experiment to see which
give the result that is closest to what I want.

Hi:

That’s great!  I changed that option and JFW loaded it right up, faster
than before.

How did you find out about that option?

Thanks!

It will get stuck, unless you switch to “Read raw print stream”.

Thanks, I’ll give that a look.

The document is pretty straight forward, but, Adobe freezes in the
middle of processing—maybe that’s actually JFW freezing.  Maybe Adobe is
just fine with it.

However, NVDA doesn’t like it either.

Just in case anyone wants to look at it, it’s an eBook on using FreeDOS.

Acrobat is always kind of sluggish.

If it’s not a scanned image document and is straightforward in general
(iE, an etext or something), you can use qRead. It’s a nice little
programme that very quickly opens pdf and epub files. I like it because
it’s very fast. However it doesn’t have many of the features Adobe has.
It’s generally meant for books or similar context with straightforward,
linear text.

Hi listers:

Recently, I have been needing to access some PDF’s.  For some reason,
whenever I try to use Acrobat Reader DC, the program seems to be very
sluggish, sometimes, even unresponsive.  Is this becoming a problem?  If
so, is there another solution that will work better with JFW?

Thanks!


Re: JAWS not speaking on Win 10 start-up screen

 

I have turned off showing the lock screen in GPEdit (this requires Windows 10 Professional) on my laptop and on 4 PC's at my business and all of them now boot directly to the screen where I am prompted to enter my password, i.e. when Jaws starts speaking I am already in the password field or, in the case of my laptop, in the field to enter my PIN.
You mentioned you also did this so I am not sure why it doesn't work. You also mentioned doing something to the registry so maybe it interferes?
If you have Windows 10 Professional, follow these steps:
1. Press the Windows key and type GPEdit followed by enter to bring up the group policy editor.
2. Type "A" to go to Administrative Templates or arrow down to it and expand it with the right arrow
3. Arrow down once to Control Panel and again press right arrow to expand it
4. Arrow down once to Personalization and press tab to get into the list of options.
5. Arrow down 3 times to "Do Not display the lock screen", it will most likely say "Not Configured".
6. Press enter and tab twice past "previous Setting" and "Next Setting" to the "Not Configured" radio button, arrow to "Enable" and then press tab 4 times until you get to the "OK" button and activate it.
7. Close the Group Policy Editor with Alt+F4, reboot your computer and see if it worked.

Regards,
Sieghard

Hi Ed,

JAWS will never speak on that screen.

By the way, it's not just escape, any key will take you to the login screen.

I disabled it ages ago, but can't remember how I did it.

All the best

Subject: JAWS not speaking on Win 10 start-up screen

Hi all,

I'm running the JAWS 2019 beta on an HP Spectre laptop using the April
update of Windows 10.

When my PC starts up, a screen comes up showing different wallpapers. To get
to the username and password field, I have to press escape.

JAWS won't speak on that wallpaper screen regardless of how long I leave it
there, but does when I press escape and the log on screen shows. I have JAWS
set to speak at the log on screen.

Does anyone know how to get JAWS to speak on that first start-up screen, or
even better, turn off that screen? I had thought that this screen was the
lock screen, and followed instructions online to create a registry key in
the hopes of disabling it. I also went into personalisation settings and
turned off the lock screen at log on, but still no joy.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

Thanks,

Ed

Thanks Bill.  I'll give that a try.

I do not understand why a CTRL + F (a straight browser find) would be able to locate that button when a JAWS Find (INS + CTRL + F) does not.  I generally encourage my clients to go with a JAWS Find first as it's been my general experience that it will find objects with label text (whether visible or not) as well as straight webpage text.  

I'm not doubting what you say, but I could swear we did a JAWS Find on just the word "Settings" this afternoon and kept getting the "not found" dialog.  Why?  That makes no sense if a straight browser find can find something.

Thanks Steve, I'll have another rootle around or failing that, get Microsoft Accessibility to turn it off.

It's interesting that JAWS won't speak on that screen, NVDA does.

Cheers,

Ed

It would, but I don’t like doing that, in case that text comes up in something you’re reading.  It would be completely ignored.

Hi Cristóbal & Steve,

 

What if you put the phrase,

 

List box Connectivity to your server. Connected

 

Into the Jaws dictionary Add / Actual word field and put a space into the Replacement word field.  This would mute Jaws of saying that text.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi Cristóbal,

 

One thought is maybe your screen echo has changed.  While in Outlook press, Jaws key + S, to tobble through settings.  They are Highlighted, All, & None.  It sounds like it might be set on, All, so switch it to, Highlighted, and see if that helps.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Subject: Annoying Jaws announcement every time I switch Outlook folders

 

Hello list,

I’ve been having this issue for a while now. I can’t recall when it started, but regardless, it happens every single time  I switch folders in Outlook 2016. Be it a main inbox or subfolder, etc.

I get the below message every time I switch folders.

List box Connectivity to your server. Connected

I don’t need to be informed that I’m connected all the time. Any ideas on how to stop this?

I’ve got 6 email accounts configured with a mixture of imap and exchange. This will occur regardless if I switch to an imap folder.

Anyway, I’m on Jaws 2018 and recently started to play with the JFW 2019 beta. This exact same behavior is occurring in the beta so I know at this point it’s not just my JFW 2018 version. I’m sure it has to do with a setting I’m not aware of or have perhaps by accident enabled.

Thanks,

Cristóbal
