Just purchased a HP Envy 13z and it works very well. Only issue is no separate number pad. Has the 360 hinge and AMD processor and graphics.

Actuallyk, if you have a recovery disk, you do the restore from
windows and it boots from the recovery disk and does its thing without
intervention.

There are no effects on other applications.
Chrome is a much faster browser, sites will load faster and there are many
more extensions available.
The same Jaws commands work with Chrome, e.g. all the quick nav keys for
finding buttons, form fields, headings etc. and also things like Jaws Key+F7
for a links list etc.
I suggest you go to Settings and sign in with your Google account after you
install Chrome as this will sync any information like what extensions are
installed etc. across devices or if you ever get a new computer.
If you use Favourites a lot you may not like Chrome, its bookmark manager is
in some ways less intuitive to use as Favourites in IE.
You can get Chrome by going to www.google.com/chrome, go to the very top and
use "b" to find the "Download Chrome" button.
Installing Chrome does not mean you can't use IE any more, you can make
either browser your default but use the other if needed. I use Chrome 99% of
the time, but still may fall back on IE or Firefox occasionally. For
example, on my Bank of Montreal Mastercard website Jaws will not read me my
Mastercard transaction details if I use Chrome. This is a table and Jaws
will read me the headings like transaction date, posting date, description
and amount, but then there is nothing else. With IE and Firefox I can use
proper table navigation to read this information.
I think it is a good idea to start to get used to Chrome since IE is no
longer being developed and it is just being maintained for now, a few more
years and it will most likely go away completely.
Firefox also works with the latest Jaws 2018 update and some people prefer
it over Chrome,but Chrome is definitely the big browser out there when it
comes to market share.

Windows 10 Mail and Jaws 2018

Jim Fettgather
 

Hello to the list.
As I am using up and down arrow keys to peruse the list of messages in
Windows 10 Mail, Jaws keeps repeating "Messages Multi Select List
Box".
This definitely detracts from a smooth reading experience, so I am
just asking if anyone has experienced this same behavior?
Perhaps a setting needs to be adjusted?
Thanks for any thoughts.

Bookshare and Jaws headings issue and hot keys

Sharon
 

Is anyone experiencing a strange issue on the Bookshare site?

When you bring up headings with insert f6 while going through the new books collection, it says headings not found. When you do it again, and again, and again, it eventually brings up the list of headings.

I wonder if text is moving around on the screen.

 

Also, I set up hot keys to bring me directly to Bookshare and BARD, but they seem to only work once.

When I try to use them again, nothing happens.

When I go in again and retype the hot key sequence again that is already there, it works again once.

Ideas?

Hello Richard:

If you are running Windows 7 and you have installed JAVA, and you want to check if Java Access Bridge is checked or not, Do the following:

press WINDOWS KEY+U, to open the "Ease of Access Center".

Tap the TAB key, until you get to "Use the computer without a display". JAWS will tell you that it is a link. Press ENTER, to open it.

Press SHIFT+TAB, until you get to "Enable Java Access Bridge, JAWS will tell you the state of the check box that is associated with this item. If Java is installed, by default, the check box is unchecked. Press the SPACE BAR, to check the check box, to activate Java Access Bridge.

Tab to the "Apply" button and tap the SPACE BAR, to activate it.

Press SHIFT+TAB, until you get to the OK button. Press the ENTER key or the SPACE BAR, TO ACTIVATE IT.

Press ALT+F4, to close the "Ease of Access Center".

Accept the update. The JAB is no longer a part of the screenreader. It's built in to Java itself nowadays. If you installed it when you first installed Java and it needs updating, it will do it. I have heard nothing bad about Java since version 7, although I still can't get it to do anything useful on my own systems, but that's probably more a Steve Matzura problem than anything else.

I too get a Java update notification. But, I have been reluctant to
do it because I do not know how it will handle the Java Access
Bridge. Does anyone know if the update will properly update the JAB?
I use Windows 7 Pro
64 bit under JAWS 15.

Thanks,
Richard

Hi David,

When Java is ready to update I find it in the "System Tray." Press
JAWS-key
+ F11 and arrow up and down. Hopefully you will find it there.

Greetings all:

Jaws keeps telling me that a new version of "Java" is ready to be
installed,

and to do this "click here" which I obviously can't see. When this
notification is announced again what is the best method to locate the
"here"

button to commence the download/install?

Sincerely yours,



David S. Pearson


IE vs. "Chrome"

David Pearson
 

Hello all:

Using Dell desktop(Windows7), and current version of Jaws. Browser is currently I.E.

What are the advantages/disadvantages of changing to "Chrome", how would I make the switch, and are there any negative ramifications (concerning other pc programs) to doing so?

Thank you,



David S. Pearson


Re: Do I need Java? Do I have it already?

I don't know if you need Java or not. My bank uses Java to enable its website for paying bills to work. This is actual Java, not Java script. The way to tell if you have Java is to go to your Control Panel in Windows. If you can use first-letter navigation in your control panel, tap the J key and see if Java Control Panel comes up. If it does, you have Java. If not, you don't.

Hello All,

I used to see Java Bridge and such under the ease of access center, but I do not find it. I have not thought of Java for a long time, not since I bought my current Windows 10 machine. I am using JAWS 17. Do I need Java? If I have it, where is it?

Is Caret Browsing useful for JAWS users?

Van Lant, Robin
 

I am learning Microsoft Edge, as that is the default browser for my company now.  I see a function called caret browsing, toggled on and off with F7.  A description on the web says it allows users to navigate with a keyboard, especially when selecting text, but it doesn’t’ work like I would expect.  I cannot tell any difference when it is on or off and I’m using JAWS to arrow up and down the web page.  Is anyone aware of a value to this featuere for screen reader users?  Maybe it’s only useful for sighted people.

Oh, your below is interesting. Well, about your comment "The JAB is no longer a part of the screenreader. It's built in to Java itself nowadays." Is this true for a system running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit and JAWS 15, like mine?

Accept the update. The JAB is no longer a part of the screenreader. It's built in to Java itself nowadays. If you installed it when you first installed Java and it needs updating, it will do it. I have heard nothing bad about Java since version 7, although I still can't get it to do anything useful on my own systems, but that's probably more a Steve Matzura problem than anything else. (smile).

Re: Backup

Excellent question. VSS is Microsoft's own volume-shadowing driver and technology. Here's the Terabyte Unlimited knowledgebase article about point-in-time technology and strategies. https://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=352

          I have pretty much given up on making assertions about accessibility since things change such that something that had been entirely accessible might become less so to just plain "not."  That being said, if you're trying to make full system image backups and/or separate user data backups for a home system I'd definitely give EaseUS To Do Backup Free a whirl just to see whether it's accessible.

          It's what I use not because it's the best (as in most sophisticated and allows the most configuration) backup software out there but because of the ease of use of its interface.  My partner is, how shall I put it, not particularly technically inclined and he can run a routine backup with it because once you set it up it's just a "click and run" affair.

           In doing a quick whirl around the main program page with NVDA just now I can easily land on the Recovery, Backup, and Advanced buttons.  I cannot seem to get over to the main column of setup buttons on the left side, but I'm not great with any of the newer navigation methods like Object Navigation, so these may be accessible via a method I don't normally use or could be entirely inaccessible.  In the event that they are entirely inaccessible, if you have assistance to set up your backup schemes you can definitely run them without any assistance, as that pane allows accessibility to all buttons.
