f6 or shift f6 never worked for me in any browser.

what I do is to press alt+d to gain focus on the address bar, and then shift+f6 to pop back into the website/webpage. now I can navigate by character, word, line, heading, etc.

Hi Klaus,

F6.

You may want to experiment whether shift+f6 is quicker if you find that it takes several presses of f6 to return you to the virtual buffer.

Cheers,

Ed

Hello,

when I tab around in a webpage with the edge browser and I get to an address form edge shows me address sugestions which is ok.

Problem is that I have not found a key combination to return to the webpage content.

A couple of days ago on a hunch I changed original HTML to simple HTML. It seemed to have fixed the issue for now. However, I will save your suggestion just in case the problem returns. Thanks for your assistance.

None.  Windows-g is supposed to toggle the setting but I can’t possibly be fat fingering that combination as often as it happens.  I bought a 3 year warranty on this keyboard and it is about time to use it.

Hi Tony:

 

I use the screen sharing in teams a lot. 

 

Ms Teams has a command to pop up the sharing toolbar its

Control + shift + e

 

Then you need to arrow to left or right.  I believe the share my screen is 2 arrows to the right and hit enter.

 

This shares your screen.  So the person at the other end can see it.  Although they don’t have any control.  So to give them control they need to request it and you need to give it to them. 

 

It also takes a few key strokes to do that.

I’m all about efficiency so I’ve been thinking of asking Brian to add commands to do these tasks.  It would save a pile of  key board commands that one needs to do currently.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Have a good day.

Just starting with Teams.  I’m doing fairly well with the free scripts and have listened to the Hartgen audio description. 

 

One thing I have run up against, and did not hear on the audio, is settings in Teams.  Sharing my computer audio is easy but sharing my screen is a graphic that I can’t find and don’t always have sighted help available. 

 

I assume there are probably other hidden controls as well.  Does Hartgen’s scripts provide access to these controls?

 

Thanks

IMPORTANT!! - External Content - Please use caution.

Hi:

 

I’ve been using ms Teams for almost 2 years now.  Initially just used the scripts included with Jaws, then tried out the free scripts from Doug Lee, and a month ago purchased the Teams course as well as the scripts from Brian Hartgen.

 

The first thing I would like to point out about Brian’s scripts  is that he has put a lot of emphasis on being efficient.  There are lots of commands in his scripts that make a user extremely efficient when working with Teams.

 

e.g.

 

  1. A key stroke to tell you the status of the mike when on a teams call.
  2. A key stroke to list all the participants in the meeting
  3. A key board command to jump to and display the conversations in a meeting.
  4. A keyboard command that will bring the ms teams into focus from any other location.  Extremely useful.
  5. Ability to assign sounds to notifications etc.

Although I’ve been using ms teams for almost 2 years, I’ve experienced some difficulties in areas like working with team feeds as compared to the chats

So I’ve found his ms teams course extremely helpful. 

 

Note: I’ve attended webinars from both Microsoft Accessibility desk, and Vispero.  These webinars were good to get you going, but to really use the full capability of ms teams Brian’s course is great.

 

So if you are concerned with being as efficient when working with ms Teams as your sighted colleagues then Brian’s course and scripts are worth the cost.  As well Brian fully supports his work, he has an email group for questions and one can always ask for new features to be included in the scripts and if they make sense he adds them.

 

Anyways, I’m very happy with both the course and the scripts.

 

If you have any other specific questions please feel free to write me at any time.

 

Have a nice day.

Hi:

 

I’ve been using ms Teams for almost 2 years now.  Initially just used the scripts included with Jaws, then tried out the free scripts from Doug Lee, and a month ago purchased the Teams course as well as the scripts from Brian Hartgen.

 

The first thing I would like to point out about Brian’s scripts  is that he has put a lot of emphasis on being efficient.  There are lots of commands in his scripts that make a user extremely efficient when working with Teams.

 

e.g.

 

  1. A key stroke to tell you the status of the mike when on a teams call.
  2. A key stroke to list all the participants in the meeting
  3. A key board command to jump to and display the conversations in a meeting.
  4. A keyboard command that will bring the ms teams into focus from any other location.  Extremely useful.
  5. Ability to assign sounds to notifications etc.

Although I’ve been using ms teams for almost 2 years, I’ve experienced some difficulties in areas like working with team feeds as compared to the chats

So I’ve found his ms teams course extremely helpful. 

 

Note: I’ve attended webinars from both Microsoft Accessibility desk, and Vispero.  These webinars were good to get you going, but to really use the full capability of ms teams Brian’s course is great.

 

So if you are concerned with being as efficient when working with ms Teams as your sighted colleagues then Brian’s course and scripts are worth the cost.  As well Brian fully supports his work, he has an email group for questions and one can always ask for new features to be included in the scripts and if they make sense he adds them.

 

Anyways, I’m very happy with both the course and the scripts.

 

If you have any other specific questions please feel free to write me at any time.

 

Have a nice day.

It is orders of magnitude in difference.

Even if it were just pen and paper, though, were someone to show up who wanted to note take, but didn't bring pen and paper, that would make a lot of interviewers look askance.  That's really basic preparedness if you're someone who takes notes.  And basic preparedness is a huge part of any job.

I would never expect an employer to offer a laptop as an interview tool.

If you go to an interview, and you expect to take notes; you should take your note taking tools with you.

A sighted person would not show up and expect them to provide a pen and paper.

If the job interview involves some kind of testing, then that should be accessible unless the interviewer doesn't know you have a disability.

Hi,


When you went to job interviews, did you bring your own laptop with JAWS, or did the employer provide JAWS as an interview accommodation? I currently only have a desktop, but am willing to obtain a laptop. I am assuming that I cannot expect any interview accommodations, and that I should be prepared. Any thoughts?

Sorry about my previous message.  My keyboard randomly goes into gamer mode and things get wacky.

 

Thanks for the responses.  I called Brian this morning and liked the answers I received.  I have ordered the course and scripts and am excited about learning to use them.

 

I am doing some volunteer work helping to improve site accessibility.  The person I have been working with has been patient while I try to learn Teams but I am not sure everyone will be as understanding.  This should help me not to waste so much of their time and hopefully make a better impression for our community.

Hi Tony:

 

I use the screen sharing in teams a lot. 

 

Ms Teams has a command to pop up the sharing toolbar its

Control + shift + e

 

Then you need to arrow to left or right.  I believe the share my screen is 2 arrows to the right and hit enter.

 

This shares your screen.  So the person at the other end can see it.  Although they don’t have any control.  So to give them control they need to request it and you need to give it to them. 

 

It also takes a few key strokes to do that.

I’m all about efficiency so I’ve been thinking of asking Brian to add commands to do these tasks.  It would save a pile of  key board commands that one needs to do currently.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Have a good day.

Just starting with Teams.  I’m doing fairly well with the free scripts and have listened to the Hartgen audio description. 

 

One thing I have run up against, and did not hear on the audio, is settings in Teams.  Sharing my computer audio is easy but sharing my screen is a graphic that I can’t find and don’t always have sighted help available. 

 

I assume there are probably other hidden controls as well.  Does Hartgen’s scripts provide access to these controls?

It does a really nice job of it.  At least I find it a lot easier to use ms teams with Brian’s scripts as compared to the ones either from Vispero or the dlee site.

 

Of course you use the   teams build in commands like control 2 to jump to the chat area, or control 3 to jump to the teams area, etc.

 

But then with Brian’s scripts the power and efficiency then really shows up.  I don’t find myself having to tab back and forth to do things.  Brian provides a Jaws command when in the control 3 area to quickly popp back and forth between listing the feeds  and the postings. This is an area I struggled with for the past 2 years. Might be because I was mostly working with the chat area.

And the team feed area is not used as much.

 

The other things I really aappreciate about the scripts is that there are commands for checking the status of the mike, or video when in meetings.  Which is great because if you aren’t sure is my mike off or on, you can just check it, where as before you had to give the  command to mute or unmute your mike to check.  So say you wanted to ake sure it was off.  In the past you would hit  control + shift + m and that would change the status from mute to unmute.  So if it changed to unmute and you wanted it muted, well you would have to issue the command again to turn it off.

 

A pain in the neck because all you wanted to do was check it.  As well when one mutes and unmutes their Mike I’m pretty sure that everyone in the meeting sees that. 

 

The course is also pretty good.  I found I learnt a lot of things from it that were not covered in the Vispero or Microsoft webinars on using Teams from and accessibility point of view.

 

Also don’t know if I mentioned it before, but Brian has build in a keyboard command that goes out and checks to see if there is an update to his scripts.

 

Oh yes, just used another excellent command in the scripts this morning.  That is:

Say in your calendar you have accepted a meeting that has a link to a teams session.  Well prior to Brian’s script you would have to tab several times to find the link to join the meeting.  Well the scripts have a key command that you issue which finds and starts the meeting.  A great saver of time and pain.

 

There also is an email list for questions and suggestions for additional commands. 

 

Hope this helps.  If you get the scripts I would be interested in hearing your experience with them and Teams.

 

p.s. I guess I should also apologize for being so excited by these scripts.  But then I’m a person who hates not being as efficient as my sighted colleagues when using an application.  I just hate having to tab back and forth so much which was what I was doing in the pre Hartgen script days.

 

Have a good day.

I’ve been using ms Teams for almost 2 years now.  Initially just used the scripts included with Jaws, then tried out the free scripts from Doug Lee, and a month ago purchased the Teams course as well as the scripts from Brian Hartgen.

 

The first thing I would like to point out about Brian’s scripts  is that he has put a lot of emphasis on being efficient.  There are lots of commands in his scripts that make a user extremely efficient when working with Teams.

 

e.g.

 

  1. A key stroke to tell you the status of the mike when on a teams call.
  2. A key stroke to list all the participants in the meeting
  3. A key board command to jump to and display the conversations in a meeting.
  4. A keyboard command that will bring the ms teams into focus from any other location.  Extremely useful.
  5. Ability to assign sounds to notifications etc.

Although I’ve been using ms teams for almost 2 years, I’ve experienced some difficulties in areas like working with team feeds as compared to the chats

So I’ve found his ms teams course extremely helpful. 

 

Note: I’ve attended webinars from both Microsoft Accessibility desk, and Vispero.  These webinars were good to get you going, but to really use the full capability of ms teams Brian’s course is great.

 

So if you are concerned with being as efficient when working with ms Teams as your sighted colleagues then Brian’s course and scripts are worth the cost.  As well Brian fully supports his work, he has an email group for questions and one can always ask for new features to be included in the scripts and if they make sense he adds them.

 

Anyways, I’m very happy with both the course and the scripts.

 

If you have any other specific questions please feel free to write me at any time.

 

Have a nice day.

What does the Brian Hartgen  scripts offer that JFW does not already include in the out of the box scripts? I’m looking for impressions from those who have used both.

 

Thanks,

Jason

Hi you can find old scripts at:

https://www.dlee.org

 

I believe these scripts are free but they are not up-to-date.

 

You can buy scripts from Brian Hartgen as he has done a webinar and has scripts that you can buy from his website at:

http://www.hartgen.org

 

Payment can be made through Paypal

It does a really nice job of it.  At least I find it a lot easier to use ms teams with Brian’s scripts as compared to the ones either from Vispero or the dlee site.

 

Of course you use the   teams build in commands like control 2 to jump to the chat area, or control 3 to jump to the teams area, etc.

 

But then with Brian’s scripts the power and efficiency then really shows up.  I don’t find myself having to tab back and forth to do things.  Brian provides a Jaws command when in the control 3 area to quickly popp back and forth between listing the feeds  and the postings. This is an area I struggled with for the past 2 years. Might be because I was mostly working with the chat area.

And the team feed area is not used as much.

 

The other things I really aappreciate about the scripts is that there are commands for checking the status of the mike, or video when in meetings.  Which is great because if you aren’t sure is my mike off or on, you can just check it, where as before you had to give the  command to mute or unmute your mike to check.  So say you wanted to ake sure it was off.  In the past you would hit  control + shift + m and that would change the status from mute to unmute.  So if it changed to unmute and you wanted it muted, well you would have to issue the command again to turn it off.

 

A pain in the neck because all you wanted to do was check it.  As well when one mutes and unmutes their Mike I’m pretty sure that everyone in the meeting sees that. 

 

The course is also pretty good.  I found I learnt a lot of things from it that were not covered in the Vispero or Microsoft webinars on using Teams from and accessibility point of view.

 

Also don’t know if I mentioned it before, but Brian has build in a keyboard command that goes out and checks to see if there is an update to his scripts.

 

Oh yes, just used another excellent command in the scripts this morning.  That is:

Say in your calendar you have accepted a meeting that has a link to a teams session.  Well prior to Brian’s script you would have to tab several times to find the link to join the meeting.  Well the scripts have a key command that you issue which finds and starts the meeting.  A great saver of time and pain.

 

There also is an email list for questions and suggestions for additional commands. 

 

Hope this helps.  If you get the scripts I would be interested in hearing your experience with them and Teams.

 

p.s. I guess I should also apologize for being so excited by these scripts.  But then I’m a person who hates not being as efficient as my sighted colleagues when using an application.  I just hate having to tab back and forth so much which was what I was doing in the pre Hartgen script days.

 

Have a good day.

Excellent feedback, just the kind of info I’m looking for about his scripts. How does it handle the teams and channels tab?

 

 

Thanks,
