Judy,

 

You are incorrect. Both the sighted and visually impaired can fill out properly designed PDF forms on the computer. The IRS uses many PDF forms that can be filled in just fine on one's computer.

Jenni:

 

I’m sure there are going to be varying answers here, but here’s mine for starters.

 

I most often read PDF files with Adobe Acrobat DC.

 

In addition, I have had some success converting PDF files into Microsoft Word documents with Microsoft Word under Office 365.  The process gives me an editable Word document.  Of course, the conversion process sometimes messes with the formatting of the original document, so it is not perfect.

 

I’ll read further responses to this question with interest.

I need to restore an image to one of my computers, which I created using Terabyte's Image for Windows.
 
If you are interested, would you like to join me in a Zoom meeting, and I will show you how I can do that, with no visual assistance. In addition, I will show you, how easy it is to create an image of a system drive for one of my systems, using the abovementioned software.

Thanks to all of you for your suggestions regarding accessible backup image software.

 

I am not an advanced assistive technology computer user, so I need to be careful in terms of what I choose to do here.

 

But, these suggestions have given me a lot to consider, and I’m saving them for future reference.

 

I will continue to read additional contributions to this thread with interest, and I hope they help others as well.

The price is now down to under $40.  Since they give you a 30-day free trial, there's absolutely nothing to lose if you want to try it out.  I'd definitely suggest doing a full system image backup, and then restore, on a non-primary machine if you have a second machine around, just to have had the end to end experience.

Jenni,

 

I hate to comment on fonts used by posters especially on a visually impaired list but since this issue was raised the other day in another thread, I'll point it out. The font in your message below appears to be some sort of italicized script font and if anyone is using sight to try and read it, I expect they are going to struggle.

it's set to on, you need to press spacebar to turn it off,

note, you'll need to press ctrl+shift+d=default,

make sure you tab to ok after making the changes.

hope this helps.

Subject: automatic spelling and level announcements/notifications

 

Hi all,

 

I am resending this with the subject line to properly indicate my line/focus...

 

Since I had to go and completely uninstall/re-install jaws and all components, I find the following and ask if you can help this not do this...

as I add a number list, I then hear automatic spelling error. How do I turn off automatic spelling?

As I arrow through the numbered list and out thereof, I hear level 1 when entering the said list and level 0 when I exit this list. How do I turn this feature off to not state levels?

 

Thank you for your help,

 

Rick

What needs to stop the level messages from Jaws reading them?

try the following;

 

1, open word,

 

2, press insert+6 on the numbers row,

 

3, type spelling into the search edit,

 

4, down arrow you will see/hear,

detect spelling while navigating,

it's set to on, you need to press spacebar to turn it off,

note, you'll need to press ctrl+shift+d=default,

make sure you tab to ok after making the changes.

hope this helps.

That is another reason for me not to use the new version of Edge. Unlike so many people today, who like to broadcast their lives, unlike them, I like my privacy, in addition, I also mind my own business.

Works well, except for all the data it collects, they make Google look like a privacy watchdog.

I also don't get where the "screwing up anything they do" comes from, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Hello Ceigart:
 
I do not have any aversion to chromium based browsers, It is just Microsoft's latest thing about screwing up anything they do. Look at what they did to Skype.

And what is the reason for  your aversion to the new chromium based Edge browser or is there some strange reason why you don’t like any chromium based browser be it Google Chrome, Edge, Brave etc.

?

Hello Milton:

 

Why on earth would Patrick use the temporary JAWS authorization, if you had been following his posts on the problems he had with it, you would know, that would be the last thing he would want or, wish to do.

 

Personally, I would not touch Microsoft Edge with a bargepole, no matter what version it is.

Hi,

 

I will assume that you have this version number of the new Microsoft Edge:

Microsoft Edge Version 81.0.416.68

 

You also need to be running the latest version and build:

Version 2020.2004.66

 

This is JAWS 2020. This build came out earlier this week.

 

If you don’t have JAWS 2020 and this latest build you can download a free use of JAWS from the Freedom Scientific website which will be good until the end of June.

Hi All,

 

I have just installed the new chrome edge (stable version).

Can anyone make sense of this so called new brilliant browser?

No matter what i do in settings, it still insists on using the “bing” virus as a search engine. I imported my settings from google chrome, and it ignored them completely.

It wont let me edit a profile.

However, it keeps adding them. Now i have “profile1” and “profile2”.

Has anyone got rid of this “thing” after installing it?

Can someone with a science degree tell me how to use this piece of what seems to be rubbish?

Sorry, i don’t mean to be sarcastic, but i am sick and tired of Microsoft saying that their things are great, only to find, that they just don’t work with jaws.

Pat
