Hello,

 

Using Windows 10, MS Word 2016 and Jaws 18 …… Pressing alt plus f4 will not allow me to close Outlook and will not allow me to shut down the computer.  Can anybody help?

if it could, it wouldn't matter because clickables can occur more than
once in a line of text. they just aren't found at the end of a line.

it would be nifty if JAWS could distinguish if a "clickable" really does
something as opposed to doing nothing, then JAWS could silence
clickables if they don't do anything while clickables that do something
are announced.

If this information can be turned off, can it be rearranged, instead of
saying clickable first and then the link to the item could that be last
in case you just wanted to pass through it? Thanks Shannon

Jaws seems to love to say "clickable" on every bloody item that could
possibly be clicked on. Is there a way to change that?
I was on a page of search results and could hardly figure out what the

Airtable questions.

Shane clark
 

Hello everyone,

So with a project that a co-worker and I are working on, we've been using airtable to enter in data. I'm actually attempting to learn how to use it myself, but I know it's similar to using Excel. My coworker would like to know, is it possible to condense everything down into a note file and then add that to Airtable? If I understand what she wants to do correctly, she wants to make things a little less cumbersome because airtable has a lot of edit fields to fill in. I hope this question makes sense? As I mentioned above, all of this is new to me, so I'm just trying to help out when and where I can.

Thanks, Shane.

How do I read comments/notes in red?

Jodie Hoger
 

Hi Folks,
My manager insists on making notes or comments in red on information and documents I receive through Outlook. I am using Win 10 and Office 16 with latest JAWS.
Can anyone give me some strategies to work out how to know when the font colour has changed to red so I can work out my Manager's notes/comments?
Thanks,

Kevin, So you just set it to default to checking? I guess that is a choice set up by the bank?

 

All good until you need to find the savings account. Is it not a combo box? Can’t Jaws find it with the C for that control?

 

Then Maybe again it is a Mouse over type that I have little to no experience with and don’t really understand myself.

It would be cool to know how some of the web controls work.

 

Have a great day.

Hello Shannon,

I do not need to find that box in order to complete a transaction now, as it is set to checking, and draws the funds from there automatically. I created another transaction to check, and the confirm page/button did come up but still JAWS did not report a select account option box. I will  get a sighted friend to check for me at the next opportunity.

Cheers Kevin.

Hello Shannon,

I wrote to the help line on the site, first I received an instruction to insure I pressed the confirmation button. Then I replied that it was not coming up and that I was using a screen reader. I was told that the issue was probably particular to my software, and was left to my own devices, so I wrote to the technical help address on the site,  and during our email exchange I offered to come into the branch laptop in  tow. Actually all I really needed was sighted assistance to report the account selection box that JAWS did not.

The best advice I could give after this is to use the insert control and L for list, T for table, B for button etc., And sadly, sighted assistance when you are stuck.

Cheers Kevin.

Jaws and Thunderbird

Don H
 

I am running the latest version of Jaws and Windows 10 and have a strange issue.
If I go to Thunderbird and read my Email messages then close Thunderbird Jaws will read some of the miscellaneous test from a Email when I go into IE, 'Firefox or Google Chrome. For example if a Email I read had the subject line of Need help with Edit boxes after I close Thunderbird and open a browser Jaws moves to the edit box for search and says Need help with edit boxes. So text that is in a buffer for jaws is being spoken when it should not be spoken. Is there a solution to this problem?
Thanks


Re: problems with edit boxes in web application help please!!

Gerry Ellis <gerry.ellis@...>
 

Hi,

 

Try re-classifying the box to ensure that JAWS knows what it is.

 

Go into the edit box, hit JawsKey and the number 7 on the normal row of numbers and choose edit box. See it that will help.

 

 

 

Take care,

 

Gerry Ellis

Hi all!

 

I am having problems with a web interface its for a program called splunk which is a log analysis program.  It has an edit field that one write their queries  into.  This use to work great.  However, in a recent interface upgrade it no longer works well.  What happens is I can find the edit field I can paste in my searches, however, I can not read them back or edit them.  If I go below the edit field I can read the query however, I can not edit it.

Re: On Line Banking Update

 

Right, forgot about this feature since I rarely use it, I mostly just use the quick nav keys for radio buttons, checkboxes, form fields, buttons etc. but I may have to try and use this a bit more as sometimes when there are quite a few of the same element this might come in handy.

Radio buttons or other virtual elements have to be present in an app.  Otherwise, you get the Find command, as stated.  If you hear the phrase “virtual HTML features,” you’re on the right track.  You can scroll down a list of 19 such features, including radio buttons.

Can you explain your Jaws+F3 and R command? Jaws Key+F3 is “find next” and I can’t see any connection to radio buttons. Usually a simple “r” is sufficient to move to a radio button.

Hi Sieghard,

I am now back at the unit with JAWS on it. Smile

I would say on a scale of 1 to 10, I fall at maybe 1.5? Haha

I am slowly trying to get used to the way JAWS does stuff. I have to admit that I still fall back on WE for a lot of things because it is just faster to get things done. I try to use JAWS to do things I know how to do. I find myself having to turn WE back on to get things finished.

 

I do know the C for combo box, H heading, A for radio button (but I am used to that function being R) I don’t understand the Regions? That is now what R is for.

The Touch Curser seems to be pretty cool but, I don’t understand it either.  It doesn’t seem to find the things I know are there either.

I don’t seem to have any luck using the JAWS find command at all. It never finds things I know are on the screen.  I don’t have much luck using the JAWS curser i.e. mouse  to find things I know are there.

There are tons of things about JAWS that I don’t know. I am slowly plugging away at the manual when I find a problem and think “there is a something for this”

Like just now… I had some spelling errors in my message. WE has a handy little thing where you can jump to the next and prior spelling errors. Alt and semicolon for prior and alt  apostrophe for next. I find it very handy I wonder If JAWS has a feature like this?

 

Thanks

Hi Shannon,

 

I don’t want to assume the level of Jaws knowledge you have for navigating websites, but on a scale from 1 to 10 where 10 is super expert, where would you rate your knowledge of the tools and features Jaws offers? By those I mean things like using quick nav keys like c, b,t, l, r and so on as well as features like Jaws Find, setting bookmarks, making sure you correctly activate mouseOver links etc.

I am a Scotia Bank customer in Canada and also use the CIBC website as I have a Visa from them and while of course this issue Kevin describes may very well be impossible for Jaws to deal with, I have certainly helped people with problems which ended up being quite workable form somebody who really knows to get the most out of Jaws

I am also curious whether now that Kevin got an explanation of the problem if he can now get Jaws to do what is necessary without sighted help.

I have numerous times needed sighted help to explain to me what was going on before I could deal with it using Jaws by myself.

Hi All,

This is my first post to this group.

I’m looking for a good backup solution that will work with jaws???  I have tried several of the mainstream programs but they didn’t work well with jaws if at all.

 

Thx -Steve

Hi,

I forgot to answer your first question.  I’m hoping to find a software package I can use.  I can send the backup to the Drop Box folder if I need to.

Thx -Steve

First of all, are  you looking for online backup or software which would back up to a local or network attached hard drive?

Second, what do you want to back up? If it’s mostly just your user files and you want online backup why not use Dropbox or OneDrive?

Hi,

 

Thanks.  I was wanting to create a complete system backup so I could restore my machine completely in the event of a crash or ransom ware attack that wasn’t caught.

I also like using differential backups for quick recovery of files when needed.

 

Thanks again -Steve

Re: On Line Banking Update

 

Hi Ted,

 

Can you explain your Jaws+F3 and R command? Jaws Key+F3 is “find next” and I can’t see any connection to radio buttons. Usually a simple “r” is sufficient to move to a radio button.

Radio buttons are quickly accessible, when available, with JAWS-F3, followed by the letter R.  They get quite a workout over here.

Hi Sieghard,

I am now back at the unit with JAWS on it. Smile

I would say on a scale of 1 to 10, I fall at maybe 1.5? Haha

I am slowly trying to get used to the way JAWS does stuff. I have to admit that I still fall back on WE for a lot of things because it is just faster to get things done. I try to use JAWS to do things I know how to do. I find myself having to turn WE back on to get things finished.

 

I do know the C for combo box, H heading, A for radio button (but I am used to that function being R) I don’t understand the Regions? That is now what R is for.

The Touch Curser seems to be pretty cool but, I don’t understand it either.  It doesn’t seem to find the things I know are there either.

I don’t seem to have any luck using the JAWS find command at all. It never finds things I know are on the screen.  I don’t have much luck using the JAWS curser i.e. mouse  to find things I know are there.

There are tons of things about JAWS that I don’t know. I am slowly plugging away at the manual when I find a problem and think “there is a something for this”

Like just now… I had some spelling errors in my message. WE has a handy little thing where you can jump to the next and prior spelling errors. Alt and semicolon for prior and alt  apostrophe for next. I find it very handy I wonder If JAWS has a feature like this?

 

Thanks

Shannon

Hi Shannon,

 

I don’t want to assume the level of Jaws knowledge you have for navigating websites, but on a scale from 1 to 10 where 10 is super expert, where would you rate your knowledge of the tools and features Jaws offers? By those I mean things like using quick nav keys like c, b,t, l, r and so on as well as features like Jaws Find, setting bookmarks, making sure you correctly activate mouseOver links etc.

I am a Scotia Bank customer in Canada and also use the CIBC website as I have a Visa from them and while of course this issue Kevin describes may very well be impossible for Jaws to deal with, I have certainly helped people with problems which ended up being quite workable form somebody who really knows to get the most out of Jaws

I am also curious whether now that Kevin got an explanation of the problem if he can now get Jaws to do what is necessary without sighted help.

I have numerous times needed sighted help to explain to me what was going on before I could deal with it using Jaws by myself.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Hi Kevin, I've been watching the saga. I'm glad you figured out the problem, but how did you solve it?

I have issues finding controlthings on my banking site as well. Just wondering what the tricks and tips are. Thanks Shannon

Hello All,

Problem solved; when I pressed the “Pay Bills” button a little box came  up asking if it was to come from checking or savings, which JAWS did not recognize.  

Cheers Kevin

Thank Mario,
I'd rather be able to actually make sense of the text and I don't do enough online banking on my computer to matter.

Thanks,
Richard

you can try the following:
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".

however, it's not recommended since there are times when you will miss
out on clickable elements that actually trigger actions, such as on
banking sites.

Jaws seems to love to say "clickable" on every bloody item that could
possibly be clicked on. Is there a way to change that?
I was on a page of search results and could hardly figure out what the
heck it was saying beyond clickable.
