Re: how do you save items to your desktop?

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, David. Which version of Windows are you running? If you are using Windows 10, here's how to conveniently save shortcuts to apps to the desktop.


Open the Run dialog (Windows+R=run), type in:

shell:AppsFolder

and then press enter to view this folder.

Find an app you wish to create a shortcut for, right-click (applications key, or, shift+f10 and choose Create shortcut from the pop-up menu that appears.

You’ll be prompted that the shortcut cannot be placed here, and Windows will recommend placing it on the desktop instead. Press enter on Yes. A shortcut with the name App-Name Shortcut for example (Mail Shortcut) will appear on the desktop. You can leave this as-is, or rename it (I usually remove the word, Shortcut). And you can of course move the shortcut to any folder as needed.

One note, if you are not using first-letter navigation to find the app in the AppsFolder, you will need to use the left and right arrows, instead of the Up and Down arrows to navigate through the apps. Otherwise, you will miss a lot of apps. This is because the AppsFolder is always in Tiles View, and can only be temporarily changed. The minute you exit the folder, it will return to Tiles View, regardless of how you set it. This is because AppsFolder is a System folder.

Re: Reading and editing Mails in Outlook Office 365

Hi, Mario. No, you didn't offend me. I was looking for a more logical reason to use ALT F, followed by I,E, not just to put down what you said. Now that I understand that you get a warning if using Protected Mode, before you disable protection, it makes more sense. I am always open to learning new things. I was not dismissing your suggestion out of hand. I just didn't know the ultimate reasoning behind your preference.

no, they are there for a reason. if a document has an infection, the
antivirus program will alert you that there is a possible infection
where you can take the appropriate action.
where as, if the mechanisms have been disabled, there's no opportunity
for the user to do anything because he/she thinks it's okay because the
AV didn't alert to anything suspicious.

as for your documents, you wouldn't have to press the alt f i e at all
because they are your documents, I should have specified in my previous

I hope I haven't offended you because I find your replys on how to do

If you press ALT, F, I, E to open a protected document, you have already
temporarily suspended protection of the document. So, if the document has an
infection, it will possibly invade the system after protection has been
suspended. This call doesn't make any sense. If I get documents, I want them
all available for editing. I don't want to have to perform the same
repetitive action on every document, every time I edit that same document. I
use Microsoft Word to make tips files, and sometimes I edit the same

Re: Correcting the way my synthesizer says something

Robin,

         This is an instance where the use of regular expression for pattern matching in the voice dictionary comes in very handy, and I think JAWS supports this, but I don't have it handy at the moment.  I know NVDA does, and I could swear that I needed to do a regular expression match in the past for one of my graduate student clients who was reading technical documents where "unusual sequences" were butchered by JAWS, but I could be confusing this with NVDA, too.  What follows applies as far as a regular expression match regardless of where you might be trying to use one.

         If you wanted to capture the lowercase  or uppercase letter 'v' followed immediately by some digit followed by any other digits or dots, until you hit a space, the regular expression would be:

                     (v|V)([0-9]+[\.0-9]*)

and to get that to read as "version" followed by the sequence of digits you'd use the following in the replacement field:

                      version \2

This would cause v5, or V3.7.21.7 to be matched, and in the case of the first be read as version five and the second version 3.7.21.7

A discussion of regular expression syntax is way beyond what can be done in a forums post, and if you're of a "programmer's mind" there are myriad online references to both learn about the syntax, what it means, how to use it, and to test it out.   I just used the sites regex101.com to test out the regular expression as I put it together and regexr.com for a syntax reference.  I'm rusty, so it took me a while to figure out how to capture any sequence of digits or digits interspersed with periods/dots and have that sequence viewed as a single unit.

No, there is no other add-ons for Firefox Quantum that plays these

Sounds, other add-ons like Webvisum and Plain Old Favorites also do not
work with FirefoxQuantum, which, as far as I’m concerned, represents a

Quantum only works with JAWS 2018 and not with earlier versions. The

Hi, Joe. Navigational Sounds is no longer available through the AddOn
Manager of Firefox. This is because Navigational Sounds no longer works
with Firefox Quantum (version 60 and up).



Instead,

1. open Firefox.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus A to open the AddOn Manager.

3. Tab to the list of available categories within the AddOn Manager.

4. The category you want to open is Extensions. When you find it, press
ENTER.

5. TAB to the search box and enter



download sound.



6. The AddOn you want to install is:



Download Sound1.4By

BPS

Plays a sound or utters a text using speech synthesis when a download is
completed.This simple extension plays a sound or utters a text using
speech synthesis

when a download is completed.



This is a deceptive description, because, as installed, it just plays a
simple ding sound, once the AddOn is installed.



This is the best way to get a download sound for Firefox downloads.

Re: Tutorial for Google Chrome?

Steve Nutt
 

Hi Ann,

One very interesting thing you can do with Chrome that David missed out of
his tutorial completely, is that you can get to all these settings using
URLs, just like opening a web page.

I'll give you two examples.

Firstly, if you want to get to History, you can type: chrome://history in
the address bar.

Second, if you want to go to settings, the same format applies, you can type
chrome://settings

Another tip, to get from the address bar to a web site, after pressing Alt-D
to see what address you have, press F6.

Finally, and best of all, the tutorial doesn't mention that you can search
directly from the address bar. To do this, simply type your search term
into the address bar, then press enter. You will get Google search results.

I hope this helps.

All the best

Steve

Updated Firefox Tutorial

Joe DiNero
 

Are there any updated tutorials for Firefox other than the one on Freedom Scientific? I had listened to that one way back when and just wondered if there was something more current to reflect more recent changes in Firefox.

 

Thanks

Re: Migrating to Firefox from Internet Explorer

Joe DiNero
 

Well the reality is I don’t necessarily want sounds for everything but would love sounds for certain things. I have thought about Chrome as well and I will probably mess around with both over the next couple of months. I am getting ready to transition to teaching my students another browser as Internet Explorer  is in Internet Hospice and a different browser solution will ultimately need to be chosen for everyone.

That’s how everybody is different, I use Chrome 99% of the time and if it had sounds for everything I clicked on or navigated and I could turn them off that is the first thing I would do, it would drive me nuts.

I have been looking to migrate over for a little while now and now you can’t get navigational sounds. Agreed that it is taking a step backwards. I was getting ready to switch to Firefox for teaching purposes as IE is going to quickly get more and more inaccessible. Navigational sounds are not a deal breaker but they are nice to have.

No, there is no other add-ons for Firefox Quantum that plays these additional sounds, nor is this feature built in.  Besides Navigational Sounds, other add-ons like Webvisum and Plain Old Favorites also do not work with FirefoxQuantum, which, as far as I’m concerned, represents a major step backwards in terms of accessibility with JAWS.  And Firefox Quantum only works with JAWS 2018 and not with earlier versions.  The last version of Firefox that still works with Navigational Sounds and the other add-ons is Firefox 52 ESR.

Good Morning Bill,

 

Thank you. So this only gives a sound for downloads? There is no way to add sounds for other navigation such as entering on links etc? Or does Firefox have that built in now?

Hi, Joe. Navigational Sounds is no longer available through the AddOn Manager of Firefox. This is because Navigational Sounds no longer works with Firefox Quantum (version 60 and up).

 

Instead,

1.  open Firefox.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus A to open the AddOn Manager.

3. Tab to the list of available categories within the AddOn Manager.

4. The category you want to open is Extensions. When you find it, press ENTER.

5. TAB to the search box and enter

 

download sound.

 

6. The AddOn you want to install is:

 

Download Sound1.4By

BPS

Plays a sound or utters a text using speech synthesis when a download is completed.This simple extension plays a sound or utters a text using speech synthesis

when a download is completed.

 

This is a deceptive description, because, as installed, it just plays a simple ding sound, once the AddOn is installed.

 

This is the best way to get a download sound for Firefox downloads.

Good Morning Folks,

 

I am about to make the switch to Firefox from Internet Explorer. If I remember correctly from a couple years ago in one of the FS free webinars on the topic there was a navigational sounds add on. Is that add on still available? Also any recommendations for any other helpful add ons or tips for migration?

 

Thanks in advance.

The down arrow or the standard insert-down-arrow works fine for me when reading after, of course, hitting enter to open the message.
When composing or writing a new email, the normal editing commands work fine.

Re: Tutorial for Google Chrome?

David, this was so very very useful.

Where can we get hold of your others?

I’d be happy to purchase some of them.

Also, are any of the google chrome add-ons particularly accessible with Jaws?

Thanks so very much again. I feel much less intimidated with Google now and have the confidence to start working with it.

Sharon

Hi!

I wrote a text tutorial for using the Google Chrome browser.

I will paste a drop box link right below, that will allow you to download the text tutorial right to your computer.

It is just a plain text file, and I take you through all that a screen reader will say as you do each step.

It will help a lot.
