Re: How do I enable cookies in firefox?

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 


Hi Kimber,
 
I can't give you exact steps, but while in Firefox if you press, Alt + T, to open tools, press the letter, O, for options, & navigate to the, Privacy, page / tab, this is where you can make the cookies settings changes.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Subject: How do I enable cookies in firefox?

Hi all,

I just started using Firefox and I'm struggling a little bit. For
example, when I try to access my gmail accounts I get a message that I
need to enable cookies in firefox, but I can't figure out how to do
that. Also, I'd be glad for any general tips or helpful resources that
will make my transition smoother.

Thanks,
Kim

Thunderbird 52.1.1 and JAWS 15

Brad Martin
 

I'm an avid Thunderbird user. Tonight, I got an update to Thunderbird. This has happened before. But today, it broke!


Now I can't select messages in the message list. All I can do is hit the Control key with the End key, which reads the last item in the list. I'm having a really hard time navigating the message list. Arrowing up and down says nothing, and I'm not sure if the highlight is changing or not. Thunderbird reads as if the message list is empty, but when I press enter, the message that's highlighted opens up. I've restarted both the program, and when that didn't work, my computer. Has anyone else had this problem?

I've Messed Up my Outlook Calendar

Rick Miller
 

Dear Listers:

 

I am using Windows 10 and JAWS 18.

 

I have done something that has messed up my Outlook calendar.  My calendar appears to be closed, and just arrowing to the right or hitting the Enter key will not open it.  And even when it is open, not all of my appointments appear on the given date.  What can I do to fix all this?

Re: Jaws updates

David & his pack of dogs
 

It can be a logistical nightmare, I know. But, I've seen those who have more money than they know what to do with and would drop $100 or more on dinner but, can't find the money for something like this. Or, spend money on junk food and say they have no money. I take no stand. However, my sibling falls into the latter category. The most offensive thing was when we offered to get toiletries for her at Costco because we were going there for our monthly shopping and toiletries are cheaper there. Naturally she would reimburse us. Her comment? "Why should I buy it, I can get ... to give it to me."

It's not that simple. How is the five dollars a month going to FVO, off a charge card, automatic withdrawal from a bank account (what bank account in some cases?

There are too many logistics for that to work. It makes mathematical sense to put aside five dollars a month toward sending in the SMA, but for people on marginal incomes, there are too many other things that absorb that money, yes, even Star Bucks on occasion, maybe.

Not sure how that works and if you can even buy single upgrades.
Given that if you have Jaws Home maintaining an SMA costs you all of $5 a month I don't know why you wouldn't simply buy the SMA every two years. It's I think $120 every two years and you get two major versions, so it's $60 per version. Jaws unlike NVDA is not a nonprofit organisation and as a business owner myself I definitely don't begrudge them this relatively minor amount of money. I know some people who don't work and are on some sort of assistance feel this is a heartship, but $5 a month I don't think can be considered a heartship as most of us spend this and more on al sorts of incidental items whether it's a fancy coffee, a beer once a week or cigarettes, in fact somebody who smokes usually wastes a lot more than $5 a month.

Re: Downloading files from a web site with JAWS

Thanks to Carol and Bill.  I now understand that you have to tab to get to the link so you can find the save as option.

Yes, Carol, I have been a Window-Eyes user since the beginning of time and Vocal-Eyes before that and DOS software that probably few have heard of before that.

I should have figured that out because the same thing happens in the Outlook Calendar.  You have to tab to the appointment in order to edit or delete or open it.

 

Thanks again,

Re: Jaws updates

All one has to do is to, if no other option is available, is to put in a separate account, the amount. If necessary, one can have, attached to that account, a debit card. With which to pay for the smas. Or, one can not spend the entire amount allocated for Supplemental Security payments. We haven't any difficulty paying for our other financial obligations. Why should this financial obligation, though possibly self imposed, be different?

The only thing, I don't think you can pay $5 a month, I think you have to pay $120.00 in one whack, which is very hard for some people, who might find it easier to pay $5 a month. However, logistically, $5 a month would cost FVO more than $120 every two years - cost in terms of logistics, processing, cost of processing, recording, etc.

Re: Jaws updates

bob jutzi <jutzi1@...>
 

I'm experiencing a similar issue.  I have a Samsung 850 Evo SSD.  Neither Jaws or Window-eys can read the strange UI of Samsung's proprietary software, Samsung Magician in order to enable the fast-boot feature called Rapid; however, this is workable with NVDA.  It does take a lot of mousing around with a physical mouse, as well as adapting to NVDA's speaking of the different functions; example, rather than Rapid, it will speak DRapid and you need to locate and click a button labeled DRapid.  I spent almost half an hour trying this with Jaws but simply not possible.  But then, no screen reader is 100% perfect in all situations.  It's all about the needs of the user.

There are some things Window Eyes will read but Jaws won’t. I am thinking of a YouTube converter.  Window Eyes would read the different formats you could convert the movie or music too, JAWS doesn’t read those formats out.  Neither does NVDA. So, JAWS is my main screen reader but, wen it doesn’t read out something, I close it and open up Window Eyes.  I also have NVDA on my computer as well as a third choice.  A JAWS user set up, the Ctr,alt as a shortcut. I want JAWS, I just hit ctr,altJ.

Thanks.  I was migrated to Jaws from Window-eyes so I may end up selling my Jaws and sticking with NVDA anyway as that's what I'veen using for around 2 years.  Both my wife and I are unemployed so if I don't need to throw money at screen access, so much the better for me.

Re: Jaws updates

David & his pack of dogs
 

There are some things Window Eyes will read but Jaws won’t. I am thinking of a YouTube converter.  Window Eyes would read the different formats you could convert the movie or music too, JAWS doesn’t read those formats out.  Neither does NVDA. So, JAWS is my main screen reader but, wen it doesn’t read out something, I close it and open up Window Eyes.  I also have NVDA on my computer as well as a third choice.  A JAWS user set up, the Ctr,alt as a shortcut. I want JAWS, I just hit ctr,altJ.

Thanks.  I was migrated to Jaws from Window-eyes so I may end up selling my Jaws and sticking with NVDA anyway as that's what I'veen using for around 2 years.  Both my wife and I are unemployed so if I don't need to throw money at screen access, so much the better for me.

Given that if you have Jaws Home maintaining an SMA costs you all of $5 a month I don't know why you wouldn't simply buy the SMA every two years. It's I think $120 every two years and you get two major versions, so it's $60 per version. Jaws unlike NVDA is not a nonprofit organisation and as a business owner myself I definitely don't begrudge them this relatively minor amount of money. I know some people who don't work and are on some sort of assistance feel this is a heartship, but $5 a month I don't think can be considered a heartship as most of us spend this and more on al sorts of incidental items whether it's a fancy coffee, a beer once a week or cigarettes, in fact somebody who smokes usually wastes a lot more than $5 a month.

Re: Need help with using jaws on microsoft online package

Let me know if it works leaving the question mark in.

Hi Pam,

I wasn’t able to find the Settings link either, but, by following the below manual steps, it temporarily puts you in the light version. From there you just need to look for an “Options” link, click on that, go to Outlook versions, enter on that, and then check “Change to light version” or something similar. You must then arrow up to the save button and enter on it, log out and then the next time you log in, you should be in the light view. Make sure you delete everything after the question mark (?) in the URL, but not the question mark itself before you enter layout=light. Good luck.

Manual method:
After signing in by whatever method (probably outlook.yourinstitution.com<http://outlook.yourinstitution.com><http://outlook.yourinstitution.com>), look at the address bar, it will probably start with something like the following: https://outlook.office365.com/owa/?blahblahblah
Just go and delete the blahblahblah part, and put in layout=light, so the new address would be https://outlook.office365.com/owa/?layout=light

Can someone please tell me how to find the settings gear that is referenced in these links?

I went back to using Internet Explorer 8 because the mail interface changed so drastically and became too inefficient. It still works fine there, but I would like to go to IE 11.

I am trying to change to the light interface using Firefox or Chrome in order to test that, but I am not finding the settings.

Thanks for any help.

Pam

Hi,

Yes, I can second the advice to switch to the Light version of Outlook web

and thankfully a friend had told me earlier about the Outlook Light version.
It works great.

Good luck.

Hello, I have found that by far, the most helpful and important option
to change is in Options, outlook version, and to use the lite mode.
Then, you are not presented with Tree Views which are highly difficult
to navigate, but a more typical interface, very similar to Gmail's
Basic HTML version, all check boxes and links are very clearly
labeled, and Outlook on the web in lite mode is very useable.
Thanks.

Re: Downloading files from a web site with JAWS

Bill White
 

Yes, this is not a JAWS keystroke. This is either a Firefox or an Internet Explorer keystroke. The trick is that you must Tab to, not arrow to the link. Once you do this, you will either find in the context menu:

Firefox

Save link as

Internet Explorer

Save Target As.

In the past, when I wanted to download a file from a web site I could use the application key, or shift+f10 to bring up the context menu and select save as and I would be able to save the file that link pointed to.

 

When I bring up the context menu with JAWS, I am not finding such an option.  Does JAWS have a way to do this?

Smoking is an addiction and when you addicted to something nothing will get in the way of that, including Jaws. Smile. Having made that flippant remark, you are right, $5 per month is not much. Just give up one day of Starbucks coffee.
