Bill:

 

Can you tell me how to get to the settings center in Firefox?

 

I’m having a brain lapse here.

 

Wonder if this happened because of a Firefox update?

How to stop JAWS from saying "clickable" on websites

 

 

Hi, Tom. Open Firefox.

In

"Settings Center"

under the

"Web / HTML / PDFs"

category, there is a subcategory labeled

"Miscellaneous"

Under

"Miscellaneous"

there is a setting labeled

"Indicate Element Attribute"

Unchecking this setting will stop Jaws from saying

"Clickable"

Hello, everyone.

 

I just received a faculty Emeriti news letter from my University.  The letter is accessed via a link that was included in an e-mail.

 

I can open the news letter with no problem, but when I start reading it, Jaws says clickable at the end of every line.

 

Obviously, this makes for an anoying reading experience.

 

I have received news letters from this organization before, and have not had this problem.

 

Is there something I can do to turn this “clickable” announcement off, or could it be something in the way the news letter was sent and formatted?

 

I’m using Jaws 17, Windows 7, and Firefox as my main internet browser.

 

Thanks for any advice!

jaws 18 release?

Yes, Open Firefox, Then open Settings Center in JAWS. If you open Settings Center without opening Firefox, the Firefox JAWS configuration file will not be loaded.

Bill,

         I presume that "Open Firefox" step should either be "Open Firefox then open JAWS settings" or just "Open JAWS settings."   The things described after "Open Firefox" are not a part of the Firefox options and Firefox does not have a settings center.

         This threw me for a loop for a few moments when I was reading it.

It might be less drastic, but not headache free.

I had similar issues and ended up doing a clean install of
Windows 10 which helped a lot. It's a big job as it means
reinstalling all your programs and potentially some drivers
so not to be taken lightly. Having said that although
Internet Explorer 11 is working better it still freezes and
crashes from time to time. One day I'll get around to
installing another browser.
That's certainly a less drastic step than reinstalling
Windows 10 (smiles).

Hi,
I'm first off having trouble learning Windows 10, made worse
by the recent upgrade that changed several things I was
doing, but my computer and JAWS often seems very slow in
responding. In particular, I'm having trouble getting JAWS
to stay talking or in some cases with IE 11 to be able to
use the JAWS cursor at all.

I know this is a little vague, well, maybe a lot, but I'm
not sure what specific question to ask because I don't
really know what's causing these issues. Does anyone have
any suggestions as to how I can get JAWS to work more
consistently and get rid of some of the stuff running in the
background? And what should I get rid of?

I've only recently upgraded to it so any help would be
appreciated.

Re: Windows 10, JAWS 17 and sluggishness

 

Hi,
Which OS did you upgrade from, and have you tried JAWS repair to see if it
fixes some issues?
I have forwarded this question to a Windows 10 mailing list in hopes that
someone here and there can help you.
Cheers,
Joseph

Office 2013, selecting cells etc. in tables?

Ann Byrne
 

In Word 2010 when in a table there is a command in the applications menu to select, allowing the choice of cells, row, column, entire table. In Word 20103 I can get to the selection choices with alt+j, l, k but not with the applications menu. Is 'select' hiding in the menu under something else, or do I have to use the ribbon?

thanks much,

Ann
