Now today it seems to want to work, but I guarantee the problem will occur again.


I will try reinstalling to see if that solves the problem.

I use google, apple and outlook servers with TB and this is not an issue for me. The one time Had your issue it was with an very old bacbell.net e-mail that was not being supported any more. So have you tried reinstalling TB It is easy and painless. Also you have to enable less secure apps in Google and use two factor authorization with app specific passwords with apple.

Hey Everybody,

The issue I'm having with Tb is that it keeps giving me an error message that my password was sent unsuccessfully to the server. It seems to do this when I check email on my Iphone and then come back to the computer later to get what I need. Usually I can reboot the computer and it will let me through to receive emails. However as of today, it's not working.

Now my friend has been having this problem for a while and has consulted with her ISP to see if it was something on their end. She has changed her password many times and the problem persists.

For the most part I am very patient when it comes to technology but Tb is working my nerves right now.

Thanks for your suggestions and if you have anymore I would gladly take them under advisement.

That's a very general statement, making it hard to thelp you decide on something different. What's causing Thunderbird to get on your nerves?
In other words, what features do you not like, or find missing, or don't work as expected?

I think all employers are always worried that a minority or disabled employee may file a complaint on such things, so even though you might not ever do such a thing, I think going to the boss and offering a better solution would give them reason to switch.
And your boss should let "go to meeting" know that they switched for reasons of lack of accessibility.
That is the sort of information that will cause software creators to consider accessibility from the start.

Using the app on an iPhone is very accessible. You will be able to see who has join the meeting and if they want to all see you when you talk, you need to have your camera enabled and screen curtin turned off. You might also want to turn Do Not Disturbed Mode On.

I need to join an online meeting for work. It is hosted using GoToMeeting. GoToMeeting’s customer service said they do not have any information on using it with JAWS 2019. There was no information on GoToMeeting’s website either. Have you ever used it? How well does it work?

NVDA uses an add-in that provides the Dectalk voices.
If you can find where the voices come from, perhaps you can get them for
Jaws as well.

Hi David,

 

We have the ADA which states that companies are expected to use accessible IT, however, where I am, it seems that falls through the cracks. I am not sure if that is related to the undue hardship clauses in state and national laws. For my use case, screen sharing is all I would need. My company’s standards are WebEx and Skype for Business. Screen sharing on both of those is accessible enough for me to be able to show when I am logging into a terminal session over SSH with PuTTY, or anything else presented on my computer screen. The question would come down to if the vendor we are working with could change to using Skype for Business or WebEx from GoToMeeting.

I was doing some work with West Ham and they tried to use go To Meeting which was totally inaccessible.

In the end they just switched to using Team Viewer as an accessible form of screen sharing was what we wanted to do.

 

If an application is inaccessible resolving this is not always immediate.

The pressure and censure for inaccessibility should however never fall upon the disabled  user who is a victim of careless code which has been inaccessibly implemented without regard for inclusion.

In the UK at least in working with the Public Sector companies are expected to work to a higher standard than this – is this not still the case where you are?

My take, nothing ventured nothing gained!  You have nothing to lose by asking!  Zoom is competitive if there is pricing and it’s just another tool to share screens and conference!  In fact, greater functionality!  It really should not matter to your supervisor as it is nominal fee!

Walker, Michael E
 

Hi,

 

I need to join an online meeting for work. It is hosted using GoToMeeting. GoToMeeting’s customer service said they do not have any information on using it with JAWS 2019. There was no information on GoToMeeting’s website either. Have you ever used it? How well does it work?

 

Thank you,

Mike

Chris, be sure to avoid Dectalk USB, which purports to sound like Dectalk Express but which, sadly, doesn’t.

I am wondering how one gets this to work on the web, say, you get an assessment or something where you need to drag and drop to rank items or something of that nature?
Thanks.

If you simply want to move files from one folder to another, just open the folder with the files, go to the one you want or select multiple files which are next to each other by holding down shift and using the arrow keys, then press Control + X to cut, go to the other folder and press Control + V to paste.

If you have multiple files and they are not next to each other go to the first one, then hold down the control key and arrow down (best to use list view or details view so all the files are in a vertical list), then whenever you get to a file you want to select press the spacebar without letting go of the control key, then arrow down again to the next file. When done repeat the above, control + x to cut and control + v in the other folder to paste.

Drag and drop works on the Windows 10 taskbar very nicely if you want to change the order the icons there are in, but it does not work in all situations where maybe a sighted person can drag and drop with the mouse, but in most cases other keyboard shortcuts like cut and paste will do just the same.

Hi.

 

Trying to learn how to do a drag and drop with JAWS.  I’ve opened a folder with some files in it.  Pressed Control + Insert + Numpad slash and I get that drag and drop and to move the PC cursor, JAWS cursor or touch pad to the location where I want to drop.  When I move to another folder, and press the same keystrokes I get an error JAWS saying the drag and drop isn’t found and it might be covered by another window then the drag and drop action is canceled.

 

Any ideas what I am doing incorrectly?

 

Thanks

Exactly. The moving files example is one that easily comes to mind, but there are various assessments, surveys, and things which want you to rank a list of items some way, or to categorize them.

Makes some sense. So sounds like doing drag and drop of say a loose file in the documents folder as an example into a subfolder in the same larger folder creates the error I described.

Sieghard. I totally get your comment about using cut and paste. The gentleman I am working with knows about that but seems to be taking a class where they want him to learn about Drag and drop. I know...

Thanks Marten and Sieghard. Appreciate it!

Hi James,

The problem with drag and drop is, that both windows have to be visible on screen and as a jaws user you not always no this.
