Hi Mike,

Thanks.  I haven't used Ninite for a long time and just could not remember what it was called.  This may be the best way for me to go.  Take care.

I have always gone to http://chrome.google.com and simply activated the "Download Chrome" button on the machine for which I wish to have the Chrome browser downloaded and installed.  The scripts at the site should detect your OS version and bit-size and download accordingly.  If you've got NoScript or similar turn it off until you've hit the button and the download has begun.

It is possible to get the standalone offline installer, but I've only resorted to that when I had an office full of computers on which I wished to install Chrome and where I did not want to have to download the full installer again and again and again.

Thank you.  I will check out the site.

Uh, that will be tomorrow.  There is no way I am clear-headed enough to get through it tonight, grin.

It's not the information bar, it's part of the web page and you won't get there with the virtual cursor.

Hi,

I have been trying to find a download for Chrome that will work on Win7 and run on a 64-bit PC. Every time I click on the download button, I get a message which says Chrome will no longer support xp and Vista and something about 32 bit. I specifically searched for windows 7 and 64-bit desktop. Where does one go to get a reliable download? My first try was with the Google page that nags every time I go to Google to ask a question. So, this time, I clicked on the yes button to install instead of the no I am not interested button. Thanks for any ideas.

I think I saw that the latest version of jaws 18, just recently released, is compatible with this new version of Firefox. It sounded to me like if you don’t have the latest version of jobs, that version of Firefox will not work.

You might try "Debut" from NCH Software, which is free at www.nchsoftware.com/capture/index.html.  I have only worked with it a little, so I don't know how accessible it is, but it is free and has a good help file to learn how to use it.

Re: Firefox! What the heck is wrong with it?

 

I am with Randy and suggest an uninstall and reinstall.  That or use refresh Firefox, which does essentially the same thing but tosses any add-ons and customizations you've done so that you have Firefox in its "out of the box" state (so to speak, since there's never been a box).

The last time I did an uninstall and reinstall it did not change anything as far as the tweaking I had done as those are kept as part of the user profile, not the core software itself.

You can try a reinstall if this doesnt work download the last known good version install it and disable automatic updates. This is a good idea in general since updates often break accessibility for a time in a lot of programs.
This way you can ask around if update X still works with creen reader Y. :)

Re: Screen recording/capturing.

Hi Natalia,

The meeting client, Zoom, might allow you to do what you want.

I believe you can record screen contents as well as audio from a meeting, and recordings can be stored locally as mp 4 files.

I'm not sufficiently familiar with it to know if you can have a meeting of one though, which I imagine is what you'd want.

Cheers,

Ed

Re: routing the cursor in gmail

open the email with the attachment.
press alt, m, h.
you should find the filename of the attachment.
press right arrow and down arrow to save as, and press enter.
the rest is standard procedure.

you can also take a look as to what other things you can do with an

Subject: routing the cursor in gmail

Group,

Using latest version of JAWS on a Win 10 machine and reading my gmail
messages with the Firefox browser. A challenge I am having is being
able to save attachments within messages. Using Window Eyes I could
go to the attachment and <shift>-F10 and get an option to save link
as. When I try this using JAWS I get options to save the background.
I am guessing I need to route the cursors to where I am at.

I have tried
* <insert>- "+" to activate the virtual cursor and still do not get
the correct choice
* Also tried <insert>- "-" and get an error message.

I think this is the same issue when I try and log into m.facebook.com
and can not activate the login button.

Thanks,

Patrick
