in the drop box preferences you have to tell it to use the windows file explorer or else the files and folders in the main dropbox desktop folder will not talk.
this may apply to your own shortcuts you created in your own folders. i don't know.

Hi again – different problem from feedback loop issue. I have shortcuts on my desktop to several folders. I find it is the quickest way to get to regularly visited folders. They haqppen to be DropBox folders, but I don’t think that should matter. The problem is that when I open the folder from the desktop, Jaws says nothing. I would expect the focus to land on the first item in the item list and Jaws would say “unselected” followed by the name of the item. But it doesn’t say anything. I have to arrow down or say line to figure out where I am. This just started happening on this new laptop I’m using, Lenovo Think pad P53 running Windows 10 and Jaws 2020. I think it also happened with Jaws 2019. Thoughts? Thanks.

Hi Justin,

Rember that playlists as well as your entire music library are just links to actual files on your hard drive.

So, the library or playlist can be recreated.

However, after saying that, in your User folder, in the Music folder, there should be an iTunes folder. In there you may find the playlist you are interested in.

 

Is it a playlist, or your entire library that is no longer there?

How many files were in the playlist your lost?

Hello Group,

 

To clarify my post from earlier today,I am looking to recover a fairly extensive playlist that is no longer in my Itunes library, stored on my Windows Pc.

What I want to do is to access a library from some months ago before the playlist was deleted, though how it got deleted is an Itunes mystery, or fault of the program.

Again, if there is anyone who can assist in this recovery, I would appreciate your help.

 

Best, Justin

I live in Nebraska, and the latest news is that there is an outbreak of covid-19 at a local packing house, so my wife decided to start ordering on-line from Walmart.
She said that when she created her account, all of the items she usually gets there were on the page of options.
So apparently Walmart keeps track of everything you purchase with your debit card, and when you go to order on-line, it should be easy to find the items you typically purchase.

moderated Re: question about audio feedback loop when using Zoom

Amy Bower
 

Thanks for suggestions. A couple more thoughts. I heard from Zoom accessibility, and I agree with their assessment (so far) that this is not a screen reader issue, nor is it a dialogue box initiated by Zoom. It is a system-generated message that would probably arise with any video/audio conferencing application. Also, I actually don't hear any feedback - the message about the feedback just pops up. I did some texting last night, and found that I could reproduce the problem when I talked loudly. I have a loud voice anyway (especially when I get animated about a subject), which may be why I'm getting this message and other users are not getting it that much. I've been messing around with the microphone and speaker settings on my Lenovo a little bit, mostly without knowing what I'm doing, with no definitive positive result. My work around for now is to use my Bos Sport headphones, but use the laptop mic (and not the built-in mic on the Bos headphones). This can all be configured in the Zoom audio settings. Can't do this though when doing a family group Zoom, where multiple family members are all using my laptop. Maybe I could achieve the same success if I attached some external speakers to the laptop and set them at some distance away.  If you see references to this feedback issue, don't hesitate to send them my way! Thanks.

Subject: Using Microsoft Teams with JAWS

Dear List Friends,

Is Microsoft Teams accessible with JAWS or do we need to install
additional JAWS scrips to make it accessible? If we need to install
additional JAWS scrips, kindly inform me where I can get these scrips.
Also, request you to kindly point me to a source for keystrokes to be
used
with Microsoft Teams. I am using the latest version of JAWS 2020 on a
Windows 10 machine.
Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

Hi,

I'm not David but perhaps he meant to write

teams-access+subscribe@groups.io

I tried it first before posting and it worked.

Take good care.

Hi. I regularly use both Teams as well as Slack for work. Both are
accessible but, of the two, Teams is most definitely way ahead of Slack when
it comes to screen reader support. Teams does have its quirks and does need
some improvement but it's overall quite usable.

If you're interested I run two lists, one for users of Teams and another for
users of Slack. At the moment they are very low traffic.

Feel free to subscribe to both or one of them as your needs dictate and as
your time allows. I would respectfully ask that any questions related to
these programs not be sent to me privately as I may not have the time to
respond in a timely manner and I am not an expert in all aspects of these
programs.

Here are the email addresses for subscribing.

   1.  Zoom is a web conference  application for meetings.  The company is
Zoom.
   2.  Teams is a Microsoft application for collaboration.  I know it's
used within organizations for meetings and also general collaboration for
ongoing projects.   I suspect it's Microsoft's version of Zoom, with
additional features, but I'm not fully sure.
   3.  Google offers Hangouts, which allows for video meetings.   I just
started using this and it seems more like a way to have a conversation with
multiple people. I don't think of it as a tool businesses would use to
present a slideshow, but I'm still new.  Maybe the Meet.Google.com thing you
are talking about is more for that.  Hangouts and the link you shared are
both associated with Google, not Microsoft or Zoom.   When I go to the link
you sent, it appears that Google Meet is Google's version of Zoom.  I
haven't seen any talk on this list about this particular Google product, but
others definitely talk about Google docs, Chrome, Hangouts and such, so I'm
optimistic that Google Meet would be accessible.  If you run into trouble
with it and if you have a smart phone, get the Be My Eyes app and, from
within that app, you can get a direct link to someone in Google
Accessibility for help getting oriented to the new tool.
We all empathize.  This is a crazy learning curve we are all on to adjust

I did not install any Jaws script yet but if there are some, I'd also like
to know.

Hope this helps. Have a nice day. Chris D

Subject: Using Microsoft Teams with JAWS

Dear List Friends,

Is Microsoft Teams accessible with JAWS or do we need to install
additional JAWS scrips to make it accessible? If we need to install
additional JAWS scrips, kindly inform me where I can get these scrips.

Also, request you to kindly point me to a source for keystrokes to be used
with Microsoft Teams. I am using the latest version of JAWS 2020 on a
Windows 10 machine.

Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

Regards

Hi. I regularly use both Teams as well as Slack for work. Both are accessible but, of the two, Teams is most definitely way ahead of Slack when it comes to screen reader support. Teams does have its quirks and does need some improvement but it's overall quite usable.

If you're interested I run two lists, one for users of Teams and another for users of Slack. At the moment they are very low traffic.

Feel free to subscribe to both or one of them as your needs dictate and as your time allows. I would respectfully ask that any questions related to these programs not be sent to me privately as I may not have the time to respond in a timely manner and I am not an expert in all aspects of these programs.

Here are the email addresses for subscribing.


For users of Slack:

blind-slackers+subscribe@groups.io


For Users of Teams

teams-access+groups.io

From what I understand, Teams is Microsoft's replacement for Skype for Business.

My company also uses Slack heavily. I am managing with it, but am still not very proficient with certain aspects of it.

1. Zoom is a web conference application for meetings. The company is Zoom.
2. Teams is a Microsoft application for collaboration. I know it’s used within organizations for meetings and also general collaboration for ongoing projects. I suspect it’s Microsoft’s version of Zoom, with additional features, but I’m not fully sure.
3. Google offers Hangouts, which allows for video meetings. I just started using this and it seems more like a way to have a conversation with multiple people. I don’t think of it as a tool businesses would use to present a slideshow, but I’m still new. Maybe the Meet.Google.com thing you are talking about is more for that. Hangouts and the link you shared are both associated with Google, not Microsoft or Zoom. When I go to the link you sent, it appears that Google Meet is Google’s version of Zoom. I haven’t seen any talk on this list about this particular Google product, but others definitely talk about Google docs, Chrome, Hangouts and such, so I’m optimistic that Google Meet would be accessible. If you run into trouble with it and if you have a smart phone, get the Be My Eyes app and, from within that app, you can get a direct link to someone in Google Accessibility for help getting oriented to the new tool.

We all empathize. This is a crazy learning curve we are all on to adjust to working remotely.

Teams is Microsoft’s collaboration program.

Good morning all,

I’m feeling overwhelmed by all the on-line things that are now being used. My employer is using Meet.google.com for meetings and collaboration. I know this is different from Zoom, but is it also different fromTeams? Are there others on the list using Google Meets? Is Hangouts the same as any of these? Please clarify and give me some good places to learn how to use Google Meets.

Many thanks.

Marilyn

Hi Sameer,

I’m hardly using Teams for three weeks now on a laptop running Windows 10 with jaws 2020 latest update because this is my employer’s recommended tool for remote working.

This app is globally accessible except for defining a “contact group” in the “Chat” tab, “Contacts” subtab.

In order to learn how to use it, I started from this web page:
