moderated strange issue with jaws 2020.

Jim Rawls
 

Hi all,

If I am arrowing down a list looking for something, I can't arrow up to the top of the list. I can arrow down to the bottom of the list, but can't go back up again. I have to close the list of files and start again. Is there a way to fix this? Jim

Hi,

 

It is pretty much the same procedure. You will find a folder that will be created in your Pontes Media Download folder under the title of whatever you are downloading.

Hi all,

 

I have been successfully using Pontes for downloading individual You tubes for quite some time. However, I have never been able to figure out how to do it for play lists. Not sure what I am doing wrong. What are the steps for downloading a playlist?

 

Thanks,

David

I used to be able to do individual videos, but that even hasn't worked for a while now.
Could you post your steps? I must be doing something wrong.
I did a playlist a couple years ago, but couldn't repeat whatever I did and since individual videos were not working, I have not even tried to figure out the playlist method.
Its a great program when it works.

Just as a follow-up, we received more documents related to our refinance today, and these were very accessible with Docusign. We had none of the problems we had with the first documents. So I have no idea why, but I am glad.

Yes, I did turn that on. I really can't figure out why it wasn't working for us this time since it had worked well when we used it a few years back to sell a house. I can't imagine the issue would be something specific to the document but...

I recently purchased a commercial building for my retail store and at the same time sold the one I am currently in. My realter used DocuSign and I probably had to sign a dozen things over a period of a few month and it was prettty easy. Make sure you select to use the screenreaer mode, at some point there is a link to turn this on.

Hi All,

Has anyone tried using Docusign recently with JAWS, or NVDA for that matter? We had used it about 3 years ago when selling a house and found it quite accessible. However, today when we tried to use it again, it was unuseable. For example, if you hit the letter B to navigate to the next button to sign, and then hit enter or spacebar, no signature was applied. Focus was thrown either to somewhere else in the document or completely into a different open window. We found similar results with NVDA.

Has anyone had success using Docusign lately, and if so, with which screen reader and browser? We were using Chrome.

I finally ended up trying it on my iPhone, and did have better luck there.

Thanks,
Pam

Hi David,

 

Thanks for that. I downloaded the desktop version of itunes. I downloaded it from the apple website, but then I had to update it.

Once I did, it recognized my iphone 7 and everything was good.

 

Thanks to you all for the info.

 

Cheers,

It is true that there is a learning curve to using iTunes.

 It  is impossible to  cover in one email all the multiple aspects  so I will assume you want in the first place just to see your music library and be able to navigate the various parts of iTunes.   I think  is that for a smooth screen reading experience you need to have column browser set as your view.

Unfortunately   Apple have in their wisdom made switching to column browser obscurely difficult.

Basically if you tab round i’tunes you will find a sidebar view table under which you can set the view for iTunes. I think the default is album, there will be another called artist, but the view setting you need is for songs.

Once you  have songs set as your  view  you will find that there  are extra options available in the view menu.

Now you can enable column browser and also specify which columns you want to show. Personally I do not bother with Genre.

Now your library will be arrange in easy columns of artist, albums and songs. As you cursor down artists the albums available  will be shown, and once an  album is highlighted  the songs available will be shown. You can tab and shift tab to each column providing actually a very good music playing experience.

In fact for iTunes you are probably better off with NVDA in the actual music library as NVDA supports fast forward and rewind whilst Jaws still, the last time I checked, still announces not in a table.

This might get you started. Once in column view you can press control F to bring up the Find menu. This is a convenient shortcut to navigate to the part of iTunes area  which allows  access as tabbing simply  from the search area  will allow you to open up for example the Apple Music Sore.

 Remember that that if you do not want to use Apple Music you have also to disable Show Apple Music Features in preferences. You need to , the last time I checked, to do this to enable the buying of individual songs and albums.

Hi,

 

I have just installed itunes on my windows 10 laptop.

I am still running jaws 2018, although i do have the 40 minute version of jaws2020 latest version installed.

I have been deciding whether to go with android or apple from an accessibility point of view.

It looks like apple is wining!!!

Anyway to get back to my original point:

I installed itunes, but it is very hard to find out exactly what is going on. There just seems to be a lot of controls (buttons lists etc), but they don’t take you anywhere or tell you what has been activated.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Kind regards,

Rick,

            It's not much different through all the versions of Outlook.  I suspect something is wrong with yours.  But I stand by my last advice.  You have the option to go to Microsoft, at no cost, and have them look at the situation.  I'd suggest you do that.

Maybe I’d better go into more detail as to what I am trying to do.  I thought that I had indicated on my Outlook calendar the time of a social that happens every Friday in this home.  I am trying to find out if I did and if so, when.  I remember that in Outlook 2007 it used to be real easy.  You’d get into the View Menu and then hit the Enter key on the Change View link.  Then you would just arrow down to where it said “List,” and hit the enter key.  Then all your appointments would appear as a list view rather than as a calendar view.  If you wanted to go back to a calendar view again you would just get into the View Menu and hit the enter key where it said “Change view,” then arrowed  from the List View to the Calendar view and then hit the Enter key and there you would be right back in your calendar view again.

Rick,

           I no longer have Outlook 2010, but I don't think this has changed in a very long while.  In Outlook 2016, when you're looking at Calendar, the following shortcuts can be used to change the presentation of the calendar:

Ctrl+Alt+1  Day View

 

Ctrl+Alt+2  Work Week View

 

Ctrl+Alt+3   Week View

 

Ctrl+Alt+4  Month View

 

Ctrl+Alt+5  Schedule View

It may be Schedule view that you're looking for, or maybe not.  But it's worth a quick try, anyway.

Day View (Ctrl+Alt+1) shows a single day as a list of appointments.

OK.  Then once Calendar is open, try ALT+V,CV  (View Ribbon, Change view).  In Outlook 2016 the Calendar, Preview, List, and Active choices can then be reached via right arrowing (Calendar being the default).

But even if it's done otherwise, it's likely to be after ALT+V,CV, you'll have to noodle around to find it if right arrowing doesn't work under 2010.

one thing to check is to look in the preference menu and change it to use the windows file manager for its view. then reload dropbox if needed. then it will look the way it did last year. then you should see the shared folder and paste your files there.

So what I would recommend you do when you move a file from your documents,
or anywhere else in your computer to your drop box, is that do ctrl-X to cut
the file from your documents. Then paste it into the folder in drop box.
Then you don't have duplicates and have to remember whether or not you put
it in your drop box.

Dear Listers:

 

I am using Outlook 2010, Windows 2010 and the latest version of JAWS.

 

When I am in  the calendar and just want to view a list of appointments, how do I find the List view?  I know you have to start by getting into the View menu and then hitting the Enter key on the “Change View,” option, but after that I am lost.
