Re: Navigating in PowerPoint

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

Ms. Berkeley,
You can also, while in PowerPoint, hit F5. This is the slideshow tab, and press space to cycle through the slides. If you accidentally hit escape well in the slideshow, press shift plus F5 to get back to the slideshow and your current slide. Hope this also helps.
Thank you for asking,
Ashleigh Piccinino

Re: What backup software can we use with jaws?

Steve Matzura
 

Richard,


Firstly, note the word "image" in the name of the software. It's not meant for backing up individual files or folders.


Secondly, there are no  screenreader-specific instructions. They all just work. The only exception, if it is indeed an exception, is the final options screen, where the letter X is placed in front of checked options, and that X is outside the list view, so the JAWS Cursor is required to detect their presence. I've been on to Terabyte for ages to change this, but either my emails fall on deaf ears, or they've not ever gotten to the right person within their organization, or some other thing of which I cannot think or imagine. These things should be real checkboxes.

Steve,
Perhaps I need more directions on the Terrabyte package. I tried the trial version, but it seems not as clear to me how you select just the folders you want backed up.
Do you have any instructions for Jaws users?
I am fine with spending $50, but I'm not convinced yet. I do know I do not want to just use the Windows backup though.

Well, with windows 10 latest addition, you can use the old windows 7 backup
tool that is built in to windows 10 under the control pannel and then find
it there.
You will create a system image, and store it on a backup drive, and then you
will have to boot from usb to restore the system image from the windows 10
installer screen using narrator, remember the installer now talks.  You
would click on repair my computer and you can restore the backup from there,
it backs up all jaws and other licenses you have when it does a sector by
sector backup.

Hi list members, does anyone know of backup software that we can use with jaws?



Re: What backup software can we use with jaws?

Isaac <bigikemusic@...>
 

Well, with windows 10 latest addition, you can use the old windows 7 backup tool that is built in to windows 10 under the control pannel and then find it there.
You will create a system image, and store it on a backup drive, and then you will have to boot from usb to restore the system image from the windows 10 installer screen using narrator, remember the installer now talks. You would click on repair my computer and you can restore the backup from there, it backs up all jaws and other licenses you have when it does a sector by sector backup.

Acronis backup software, NOT ACCESSIBLE

Richard Turner
 

I tried the trial version and not only is it not accessible, but it launched at boot up with something called Acronis Protection that ate most of my processing capasity.
I had to get help from my sighted wife to even uninstall that piece of junk.
I wrote Acronis an Email which was probably not at all polite, but it let them know how bad it is.
They had replied to my initial inquiry, with the fact that they have not tested it for accessibility, but that I could test it with the trial version, so I figure they got what they asked for.
Since I had brought up the topic on the list, I thought I should let folks know.
I'll stick to hand copying the files and folders I want backed up.

Re: chrome switch from I.E.

Dave...
 

Auto Forms mode is based on JAWS. When Chrome is up and running, then open
the JAWS settings center and set Auto Forms mode to on.

Hello JD:

Guess I was confused about who sent which information, so thanks to you as
well.

Think that I'll try the key press sequence of: alt+ Cntrl+ "H"for chrome
as this sequence avoids having
to use my spacebar.

Now I just need instructions on how to ensure that when I bring up chrome
via the shortcut it will place me in "auto forms mode" allowing input of
text.

Thanks again,



David S. Pearson to

Good Morning,

To create a keyboard shortcut do the following

1 - Go to the desktop and bring focus to the Chrome icon
2 - Hit your application key or shift F10 and arrow up to properties
and hit enter
3 - Tab to the shortcut key and choose the shortcut you want to
use.
4 - If you want to change what type of window opens ie normal,
maximized or minimized you would tab once more to make the appropriate
change
5 - Shift tab to Apply and hit enter
6 - Shift tab to ok and you should be good to go
Hope this helps.

Joe

Hello Sieghard:

Think that I understand, or "light dawns on marble head" as my father used
to say.

Next question please: What is the exact procedure for creating the
shortcut? Will probably want to start with the alt + Cntrl sequence, but
don't think that I'll use letter "c" as I'm using a one hand(can't use left
one) keyboard, and typing that
letter requires use of the spacebar which I'd like to avoid if possible.

Most sincerely,

If you have a Chrome shortcut on your desktop you can go into the shortcut
properties and assign whatever shortcut you want, e.g. Alt+Control+C or
Alt+Control+G etc. There might be a time when you want to fall back on
Alt+Control+IE so
I wold leave your IE shortcut alone and make a new one for Chrome.
Auto forms mode is a Jaws setting and has nothing to do with the shortcut
key you use to open your browser unless you are talking about something else
and I am completely misunderstanding your question.

Best regards,

Hello list:

Thinking about switching from I.E. to "chrome as default browser.

Currently, I use a "hot", or shortcut key sequence consisting of alt+
Cntrl+"I to open I.E in "auto forms mode". How do I ensure that this
Cntrl+key
sequence results exactly the same when I make switch to "Chrome browser?

Re: winamp or other programs I hope I can explain this right

Mario
 

I think it is a compatibility issue of winamp running under windows 10
because Winamp does not gain focus when pressing enter on an audio file
if switching to use NVDA or Narrator.

It used to be possible for WinAmp to come to the foreground in past versions
of Windows. I don't know if it's an incompatibility between WinAmp and
current versions of Windows, or if it's a problem with WinAmp and JAWS
versions, but the current situation is this, you must use ALT plus SHIFT
plus TAB to bring WinAmp into the foreground. It doesn't come to the
foreground by itself, the way it used to.

Re: Correcting the way my synthesizer says something

 

Robin,

             This just in directly from VFO.  Give it a try:
--------------------------------

Thank you for contacting VFO ® Technical Support. First of all, if you create a dictionary entry of the letter “v” or “V” followed by white space, the JAWS® program will assume that every entry and the space after the letter. So occurrences like “v3” will be ignored. However, if you put a space before the letter in the “Actual Word” field, then JAWS will interpret the letter “v” or “V” as the beginning of the term.

 

Next, you should use the “*” (asterisk) symbol immediately after the letter to stand for any numeric combinations that would follow. Once this is done JAWS will read the items correctly. The following example illustrates this feature.

 

Your actual word would be “ v*”, with the replacement word as “version” (without the quotes). JAWS would then read:

 

“ V3” will be read as “Version “3

“ V4” will be read as “Version 4”

 

If you have any additional questions regarding this or any other issue, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Go to control center and choose default programs, enter, then to music player and choose Winamp as default player.
