Re: Help File For ITunes

 

Hi Alan,

 

I didn’t know about this website, I am just trying it out by installing NVDA and Skype. Also, I commented earlier that this wouldn’t take into consideration whether you have a 64 Bit version of Windows when somebody provided a link which directly downloaded iTunes from this site. When I read through what was available I did now see that there is a note explaining that 64 Bit versions of software are downloaded if you use a 64 Bit version of Windows so I take back what I said earlier.

 

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Try installing iTunes with the .exe file from:

I always use this as it just installs the program without any other junk. Regarding the help menu, I just checked it and I can read parts of it but generally most is written for sighted folks which is not that helpful for us.

See if you can get this installed from there and then we can try to get it set up so you can use

I wonder, why don't they have a regular help file, like a .chm for ITunes 12, like they used to have for older versions? Every time I try to access the help section, JAWS won't read what's on the screen.


Re: Help File For ITunes

 

Hi Annabelle,

 

I just tried the Help file in iTunes 12.5.1, I am running Windows 10 and the Jaws 18 Beta and it seems to work fine. I am not at home right now and have a pretty slow internet connection and it took several minutes for the HTML page to load, but once that was done Jaws read the table of contents and while the items there are not announced as links, pressing enter on, for example, “Syncing Overview” does load the text and I was able to read it with Jaws and followother links given.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

I was always under the impression that Ninite.com always installed the version one needed for their particular situation? Is this not true?

Hi David,

It's nice of you to provide this link, but one thing this download doesn't do is to take into account whether the person is running a 32 Bit or 64 Bit version of Windows. If you download from the Apple website the website auto detects your operating system and the appropriate installer will download.

All you have to do is go to www.Apple.com/iTunes/Download and on this page you can use the "b" navigation quick key for finding buttons until you come to the "Download Now" button.
There are also two checkboxes which you can easily find by using the "x" quick navigtation key and a radio button (use the "r" quick nav key) on this page you may want to check out, the checkboxes are:

Send me iTunes updates, news, and special offers.
Keep me up to date with Apple news, software updates, and the latest information on products and services.
Obviously if you want any of these newsletters you will have to make sure that the appropriate checkbox is checked and then provide your email address in the edit field right below the checkbox items (The "e" quick key will find the edit box easily also").

The radio button shows your country and it should auto detect, but I am in Canada and often it says "United States" for me.
Once you activate the "Download Now" button the information bar (should pop up (if you use Internet Explorer) and you then just press Alt+N (F6 should also do the trick) and select "Run" or tab once to go to "Save". I recommend saving it first, then go to your Downloads folder and run it from there. It is a larger download (166 Mb for the 64 Bit version) and I just prefer to save such installers first.
While iTunes has its accessibility issues which currently are significant, the process of downloading and installing it are quite straight forward.

Sieghard

Hello,

I’m trying to download/in stall iTunes on my Windows 7 computer, because I wanted to play some blind-friendly games. I have been told, when I try to look at the games, that they can’t find iTunes; when I go into “programs and features,” I also don’t see iTunes listed. So, where the heck is iTunes going, if anywhere, and if nowhere, how can I get it to download and install on my PC? Thanks!

I would think so, it is just the regular iTunes but without any of the extra things sometimes that get installed with a program as well, i.e. toolbars, etc.

Hi Sandra,
 
I can't tell you why iTunes isn't installing but, once installed it's in your Program Files folder on the root of the C Drive, & it should be in Programs & Features as well.
Take care.

JAWS not speaking repeat find

Ann Byrne
 

Windows 10. Word 2010. JAWS 17 latest.

On one computer, when I press ctrl+f and type text to find, JAWS speaks only the first instance of the text. When I press enter for find next, the cursor moves to the next instance but JAWS does not speak it.

On another computer with the same configuration when I presss ctrl+f and type text to find, JAWS speaks not only the first instance but all subsequent instances of the text. I have tinkered with all the JAWS settings that seem applicable, changed the color scheme to Windows 10, repaired JAWS, run JAWS /default ... nada. Any ideas????

thanks,

Ann

Re: navigating through tables

 

Lauren,

            You may or may not have success with having JAWS announce fields correctly depending on how the MS-Word document (usually in the form of a fill-in form) or the web page is coded.  A truly accessible MS-Word form using form fields should have help text coded for each field, with Status Bar help text being announced when you land in the field to enter data and F1 help text if something might require additional explanation.  Web pages have similar attributes, but I think it's the alt-text that gets read on entry into a given form field.

             If you are able to share the web address of the volunteermatch webpage where you're trying to fill out a form I can see what NVDA has to say as I traverse the fields to see if there are any "dead zones" as far as announcing name/purpose of the field.  The page may simply not be coded correctly to be accessible.

             Also, if you have a URL for a specific Word form that you're having trouble with please post it as well.

navigating through tables

Lauren Snyder
 

Hi:

 

I am running Windows 10th anniversary with Jaws 17, IE11 and Office 2016. When I opened a file in Word where I need to fill out a form, Jaws reads a table and says the row. However, it does not read all the contents of that table. When I went online just now to complete a form on volunteermatch to register for instance, Jaws also does not read everything in a table. How can I get Jaws to read all the elements so I know I am typing in the correct info where it needs to do? T

K you. Bes
