Re: Equivalent of NVDA "Focus Highlight" Add-On for JAWS?

Hi all: I love the handy Compressed (Zipped) Folder for zipping and extracting, but, recently, after I use my system for a day or so after startup, the association to that program gets messed up, and Express Zip comes up instead and wants me to buy the software. How do I get that association to Compressed (Zipped) Folder back? I can’t locate the actual program file for it—it is said to be a default in Windows. I have Win 7.

"Global" control of folder views is not very much different than it has been for decades now and is accessed through the File Explorer Options Dialog, AKA the Folder Options dialog, by invoking it from within File Explorer after you've set the view as you want it for the top level folder under which you'd like all subfolders to appear the same way.

First tweak your view as you'd like it to be at the top level folder that is to be used as the "master view" and where all subfolders under that folder are to look the same.  Hit ALT+V,Y,O  [View Tab/Ribbon, Options Group, Change folder and search options].  In the Options dialog that appears, in the General tab that opens, you can choose whether File Explorer opens with Quick Access at the top of the folder list or This PC in that position.  For those who like the old "My Computer" layout choose "This PC" from the "Open File Explorer to:" dropdown.  Then, since you've already set up the view that you want used as the "master view" in the folder you're working on, activate the View tab and then the Apply to Folders button.  Then you will be presented with a dialog box asking, "Do you want all folders of this type to match this folder's view settings?," and you will activate the "Yes" button if you want your current view applied or "No" if you realize you need to tweak something else.

Note carefully that the question says "folders of this type" so, if you're working on a regular folder this will apply only to regular folders, not those using the Windows conventions for Photos, Music, Videos, etc.  If you want those to be changed you need to repeat this process in a folder of the type you want to use as the "master view" for that type of folder.

I don't have my Windows 7 laptop at hand, but I've dealt with this particular dialog many times over the decades and it still seems very similar, if not identical.

Re: Help with menus in Win 10

Alan Robbins
 

Folks,

Can't help but chime in here. I know many folks don't like ribbons, myself included. However, that is the direction technology is taking so it behooves all of us to find our own way of dealing with them. Trying things to avoid them only kicks the can down the road. For those using JAWS, FS did come out with the virtual ribbon option which is not perfect but does make them usable.

That's a really useful and comprehensive article.

That being said, what's generally "the big problem" is that no
screen-reader support is available prior to the loading of the operating
system, and all of these things are done during the part of the boot
sequence prior to the operating system loading.

I have yet to encounter an instance where there is speech feedback for
these actions. If anyone knows how to get it then please share.

I guess you could call the ribbon a collection of menus, you just access them a bit differently.

They're actually just a slight reinterpretation of the menu-submenu structure such that the most commonly used features of the most commonly used submenus are visible at all times for "point and click" convenience.

The tabs for each ribbon are exactly analogous to a menu invocation and are all accessed via ALT plus appropriate letter.

The ribbon itself contains the old menu items (as groupings) and submenu items (as individual controls within groupings), but as though the submenu items were always expanded.  If you wish to move from what used to be menu item to menu item, now grouping to grouping, you use CTRL plus Right Arrow or Left Arrow, depending on whether you wish to go forward/right/down (depending on how you wish to think about it) or backward/left/up.  Once you've arrived at the group you wish to use, TAB or SHIFT plus TAB moves you forward or backward through the individual controls for that group and, eventually, out of that group if you keep going.  If you overshoot a simple TAB or SHIFT plus TAB will move you back into the control group you wanted to be in.n

The concept is precisely the same.  Ribbons are just a variant on the theme and the keystrokes to navigate them are slightly different.  Once you drop the idea that the arrow keys are your primary navigation keys and adjust to the correct ones for ribbons they become very easy to use (or at least no harder to use than menus).

One of the things I have always found most difficult when tutoring JAWS is keeping track of where the JAWS cursor is relative to what I can see, and often, can't see because JAWS makes no effort to scroll the screen based upon the location of the JAWS virtual cursor.

It would be really handy for myself or any sighted assistant, or even for those who use JAWS with low vision, to have a visual indicator of what JAWS has focus on that shows in the program or webpage or dialog box, etc., that you're working with.
