Hello Jim,

Press insert G for the graphics labeler dialog. There should be a webinar dealing with this on the FS site. I think it might be in Surf’s Up.

Cheers Kevin.

Subject: renaming a link on a webpage

 

Heya folks,

 

How do I rename a link on a webpage using Jaws17? As this site alot of the links are just graphical and are numbered 01, 02, 03 etc so I’d like to rename them with Jaws so I know what they do in future.

 

Cheers,

 

Jim

No, sorry.  You press Windows key plus I then tab to system, if you have the new w10 update.  If you don't have it yet, as soon as you press Windows key plus I, you land on system.  You enter on system, down arrow to about, then enter on that, to hear the version you have; but listen closely as a lot of information is thrown at you at once.

so after a phone call to jaws I was told the reason jaws wasn't working with I tunes was that  my version 12 was just to old, and I would have to by a newer version.
so well I thought before i spend  a whopping 3 hundred and 75 pounds I  would down load the latest demo of jaws and make sure, so I did this. and well it as made no difference I tunes will still not talk to me.
so any way I am now out of ideas so as any one got any thing they can suggest ? and is any one else having problems  with i tunes?  or is it working ok for the rest of you ? and if so what version of jaws are you using with it ?
oh I  would like to add here although I haven't sorted my jaws and I tunes problem out yet the person I spoke to from jaws was very helpful.

Re: Can I use narrator voice with JAWS?

Soronel Haetir
 

Yes, you can. Narrator simply uses whatever SAPI5 voice is set as the
system default. And jaws can use SAPI5 voices as well, it's one of the
choices of 'voice profile' in the voice adjustment dialog.

However the SAPI5 voices installed on the typical system are generally
of far lower quality than the optional voices (real speak solo direct,
vocalizer direct, vocalizer expressive) you can install with jaws.

Hi listers,



I accidently started narrator on my Windows 10 V1607 laptop and liked the

OK.  Now I'm nervous.  If I press the keys you mention, I get the message of having even an earlier build than you. However, if I press start menu, tab to system and enter, down arrow to about and enter, I get the version of 1607.

What to do?

I went to System in the control panel, could not find About, but pressing the Windows Key, and then insert, control, V, did announce a version. 10.0.185…, so I take it I am not up-dated to the anniversary version?

Cheers Kevin.

You can go to system then to about, and it will tell you the version of w10, which should be 1607 if it has updated.

if the MCT is less than 17000 KB, you've got the older version.
download the new one:

Hi listers I had the windows media creation tool on my computer from a
previous repare/install so found it and ran it I selected upgrade this
PC now and in roughly 2 hours was back up and running. the first thing
I did was test the edge browser and jaws still couldn’t read it. the
blind bargains post said that edge version 14 should be in the
anniversary update of windows. it doesn’t appear to have done the
anniversary update. edge still can’t read with jaws. tried something
very basic the mobile version of facebook. is the anniversary update
not up as yet or is there something else I should have done. the
computer said I installed windows 10 home. is the update there yet and
if not will I get some kind of notification in the notification center?

Ken, Edge isn't supported yet. Blind Barbains was talking about Edge and not its accessibility with screen readers. I'm not even sure Cortana uses Internet Explorer as the default browser with Jaws as was stated earlier this week.
