Hi Michael!  Citrix and JAWS play very well, if you have it configured correctly.  First of all, you will need to have a remote access license.  This is different than the regular JAWS license, and costs around 200 dollars.  With respect to your issue, in order to make sure that all of the key commands go to the server, you will need to make sure that the virtual desktop is displaying in full screen mode.  You accomplish this by first pulling up the Virtual desktop or the server, and then pressing control, plus Alt, plus Pause on your computer.  Be mindful that many laptop computers do not have a pause button, so you may need to use a regular desktop keyboard for this.  Once you press Control, Plus Alt, plus Pause, a menu will come up with several options.  You’re looking for the full screen option.  Press enter to activate it.  You should only have to do this once.  From then on, the setting will be remembered, or at least it has been for me.  I hope this helps!

Hi,

 

These days, how well do you find JAWS 16 to work with Citrix? A common problem I had in the past was that when I pressed the Windows key to get to the start menu on the server, it brought up the start menu on my PC instead. How did you wind up directing all commands to the server? I would like to hear from multiple individuals who have used Citrix.

 

Thank you,

Mike

Subject: Using JAWS to Download a Book from a Particular Web Site

Dear Listers:

Are any of you familiar with Audio Book Ministries, also known as Tape Ministries for the Blind?  They have an online accessible library from which their books can be downloaded, but doing it using JAWS is very hard.  Their address is:

https://eur01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.audiobookministries.org&data=02%7C01%7Cmrb620%40hotmail.com%7Ca59e47c703734657cc8e08d525cf6dc6%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636456495183202144&sdata=6zir7r8qp5fkXPNOOS8hSYChHqdt6lOeeAWthmAK45A%3D&reserved=0

Right now the employee they have who is knowledgeable about screen readers and about JAWS is on medical leave and they don't know when he will be back again.  So if any of you are familiar with this particular web site and maybe, by chance, might have downloaded a book from it, would you please be so kind as to access it and figure out how it can be done using JAWS?  You don't have to sign in to do this-at least not for the help I am asking for.  Just go to the web page and find the "Online Library Access," link and hit the Enter key.  Then if you just find any book, try to figure out how to get to the page where the book can be downloaded.  When you get to the page that has the book description, you'll see there is no direct link to download the book.  There is a "downloads," link but it will not take you to the "download," page for the book you wish to download.  Instead, it takes you to the page where there are various things that can be downloaded, such as the AudioBook Ministries tax summary and various other things not at all related to the book you wish to download.  When you find a book, just tell me how to use JAWS to get to the book's download page.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Re: Headers in Word, the webinar notes work but can't remove Running Head on subsequent pages without removing all instances

Kevin Hourigan <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Running Header and Page Number

list of 16 items

1. First, press ALT+N to move to the Insert tab of the ribbon.

2. Press H to activate the Header drop down button, and then E to choose Edit Header. Focus goes to the empty header edit area.

3. Press ALT+JH to move to the Header and Footer Tools Design tab of the ribbon, and then press A to check the Different First Page check box. Focus again

returns to the empty header edit area

4. Press ALT+N to move to the Insert tab of the ribbon again.

5. Next, press H for Header, and press DOWN ARROW to select Blank 3 Columns. Focus moves back to the header edit area at the top of the page. This time,

three different fields for text are inserted with the words [Type text] at the left justified, center, and right justified parts of the header edit area.

The cursor is just to the left of the first field.

6. Press RIGHT ARROW. The first field is now selected. You can verify this by pressing the read current control keystroke, INSERT+TAB.

7. Press RIGHT ARROW to move focus out of the field to the space after it. JAWS says, "out of form field."

8. Next, press RIGHT ARROW to move to the beginning of the second [Type text] field, and then select it by pressing RIGHT ARROW again.

9. Press the DEL key to delete this middle text field. The cursor remains in the center of the header, but the field is now gone. JAWS reports, "out of

form field" again.

10. Press RIGHT ARROW twice more to move to and then select the third [Type text] field.

11. Next, press ALT+JH to move to the Header & Footer Tools Design tab of the ribbon, followed by N U to activate the Page Number button in the Header &

Footer group of the lower ribbon. A submenu opens.

12. Press C to choose Current Position, and another submenu opens with focus on the first item, Plain Number 1.

13. Press ENTER to select Plain Number 1. The menus close, and the [Type text] field is now replaced with the number one.

                14. Press HOME to move to the beginning of the header area. This also selects the left aligned [Type text] field.

15. Type the following, with the actual running header in all caps. The running header must be 50 characters or less. It is OK to shorten it and have a

longer title for the paper in the center of the page. Type: Running head: TITLE OF PAPER. In my example, I have the following: Running head: READING COMPREHENSION

USING SYNTHESIZED SPEECH

16. If necessary, select the entire line of the header and check the font and size to make sure it matches the body text you are using.

list end

 

NOTE: As you type text in the left text placeholder, the number on the right side may wrap down to the next line. After you have typed your running head,

press the DEL key to remove any extra spaces and bring the number one back on the same line as the rest of the text. You may need to use the JAWS cursor

to do this, since a Say Line with the PC cursor reads both lines of text in the header.

 

list of 1 items

17. When you are finished, press ESC to get out of edit mode for the header text. Focus returns to the main document area.

list end
