shouldn't have any trouble using that system at all.


Legend has it that on Tuesday 11/7/2017 01:25 PM, David & his pack of dogs said:
----------------------------------------
I was given a HP lap top by a charitable group sponsored by the government. It has 6 Gigs of ram and a 250 G hard drive. Is that enough to run JAWS 2018 as well as other related products? The agent knew I was blind. Perhaps the agent being sighted was not aware of the size of hard drive needed. After all, he didn't know Window Eyes had been discontinued. I don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth however, fear the hard drive is not big enough to handle accessibility products. It was suggested I just send the lap top back.

Outlook 2016 Address Field Issue

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

 

This morning, I just discovered a major problem with Outlook 2016 when originating an e-mail.

 

When I start a new e-mail with control N, I can no longer type a contact address into the “to” field.  When I do this, I get kicked out of my new e-mail, and get placed back into my inbox.

 

Interestingly, I can go to my contacts list, and copy and paste the e-mail address into the to field with no problem.  I can also reply to e-mails with no problem.

 

Once again, the issue occurs when originating an e-mail and trying to access someone in my contacts list.

 

I am using Jaws 18, Outlook 2016 with Office 365, and Windows 7 here.

 

Has anyone recently experienced this issue, and if so, have you found a fix?

 

I am eligible to upgrade to Jaws 2018, and will do so when I get the chance.

 

However, in the meantime, I’d like to be able to quickly originate e-mails in the usual way if at all possible.

 

Dr.  Tom Behler from Michigan

Does anyone know of anyone writing some scrip's to make quicken more blind friendly with jaws?
Because currently the fields are blank and you have to memorize everything.
So, it would be nice if we could get JAWS 2018 to work with quicken so that one could keep up with one's checking account.

Hola!

I am using JAWS 2018 on a Win10 (Latest update) machine.

For some reason when I now use alt + tab to circle through my open
windows I am only cycling through 2 windows, though, I know that I
have more open at the time.

I know this by looking at the Running Applications List Box via
numpad/enter + F10.

How can I get back to normal alt + tab cycling?

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:

 

http://www.audiobookministries.org

 

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.

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

Rick,

Using Firefox, it is clearly possible to get to the download link after selecting a book.  Note that the book download link is above the submit button rather than after it.

However, when you follow that download link you get to the “check out” page where it clearly states:

 

You must be logged in to checkout.

 

You have to sign up as a patron in order to download anything.

The How to become a patron file makes that pretty clear.

 

I hope that helps,

Richard

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!
