Can you explain more?

Goodmorning,

 

I have a Dell laptop running Windows 10 Anniversary edition and JAWS 17. I would like to learn how to read newspaper articles on the wweb more efficiently. If I click on a New York Times Article or any other large news site I end up fighting my way through tons of advertisements and other distractions while trying to read the article. It is the same with my hometown newspaper site. Where should I go to learn how to be more efficient?

 

Thanks for your help, frustrated in Duluth,

Re: Free ftp client for Windows7 and 10 JAWS17

Artur Räpp
 

Hi,

If you don't need encrypted connection or other more advanced features, then you can use Windows explorer (windows 7) or File explorer (windows 10) too.
Open a folder, for example My documents
Press alt+d
Type ftp protocoll prefix ftp:// followed by the ftp server adress (for example ftp://my-ftp.examplesite.org). Press enter.
Sometimes Windows ask directly for username and password, sometimes you need to open file menu to find Login dialog.

If you need more options then Filezilla, as already suggested, is good choice.

Artur

Hello,
I am looking for a free FTP (File Transfer protocol) client that will run on Windows 7 and 10. This client should be accessible with JAWS17 and have a file or windows explorer like interface where the folders are in a list view. I would also like this client to be able to transfer information back and forth from my local machine.
Does anyone have some suggestions? I tried performing a search and I saw a few open source clients but I am not sure how useable these are.
The server has a user name and password if this makes any difference.
Thank you in advance for any responses

I bought John Martin's scripts a couple of years ago and played around with OneNote. The scripts definitely work, but I still found it just not intuitive to use and again abandoned it. I wish between Microsoft and Jaws they would make this application fully accessible and easy to use and I don't understand why I haven't yet found a single cross-platform app that meets these criteria. I want something which allows for easy creation, organisation and classification of notes, it has to give me the ability to search these notes and allow for text, voice, picture and video or at least text, audio and pictures.
I have a specialty retail business and we get a ton of requests for products which people either want us to order or find out more for them and also have to deal with warranties and so on. I want just a simple program which let's me create a note which I can search and assign to a customer's name and which then allows myself and my employees to update with information and, in the case, of a warranty, with pictures of the defective item. It would also be fantastic if I could add reminders to the note and ultimately set its status to inactive.

I was wondering if anyone is aware of scripts or a way to use one note or one note 2016?

I tried the scripts from do it blind but it crashes one note 2016 and does not  work with one note built in windows 10.

I am unsure if the scripts are being developed anymore.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

Re: How can I learn to better use internet with JAWS?

 

Have you tried to use the headings quick keys to see if you can quickly find the beginning of the articles? You can use “h” for headings in general or numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and so on for heading level 1, heading level 2, heading level 3 and so on. Many websites make use of this.

 

Take care,

Re: Actions: Undo Auto Action

It has to do with the "auto correct" settings.  These can be found under Word options.  I think they can be totally disabled.

Subject: Actions: Undo Auto Action

 

Occasionally, in Microsoft Word 2013, I will hear “Action: Undo auto action.”  This is quite annoying.  I’m using JAWS 17, Windows 10 and, of course, Word 2013.

I have not been able to identify precisely what triggers this, though I’m starting it is a “paste special” action, i.e., control + alt + v.

That allows me to paste in any text in pretty much any form I want, including plain text.  It has been a handy feature, and I’m not willing to give it up, but if it is causing that stupid message, I’ll have to consider doing so.

Does anyone have any suggestions about how to avoid the annoying message.

I do not ever remember getting it with JAWS 16 or with Word 2010.

Hello Tom,
When in the folder that you would like to search such as your Outlook inbox, press ctrl+e and type the email you would like to search for.
Next tab to and find the menu that states current mailbox submenu and press the spacebar on this. It should open a menu down arrow through to current folder and press enter. Finally, shift tab to your search query and press enter. Now, tab a few times to find a list of search results. I just tried this in Outlook2013 and it works here.

Hello Tom;
Well, I've tried different ways to do a search in outlook 2016,
The only way I can get any results is,

1, ctrl+shift+f=advance find,

Now type in a subject line,
Or, perhaps a few words within the email,
Now press enter to start the search,
Once search is complete,
Press the f6key to view the results. Also, to read a message simply press
enter,
When you want to get out of the list of searches just press, the escape key.

Hope this helps.

Carolyn & Ed,

Do either one of you happen to have a sighted assistant within shouting distance when you get this message? I ask only because it's sometimes easier to determine what has actually caused it when the context can be seen, as the alerts often are placed near "the offending location" and sometimes have dropdown items you can access (such as the paste options in the case of paste - but I'd expect a screen reader would actually gain focus on this one).

I get exactly where you're coming from. It has taken me ages to adjust (and I still haven't to the extent that actual screen-reader users must) to the amount of auditory input one has to deal with in order to use a computer with a screen reader. It's enough to drive one mad at times, and anything extraneous that you know you can ignore and that you might be able to dispose of entirely is a prime candidate for turning off.
