Robin,

You won't really be accessing two different Dropbox accounts. What should happen is that whoever is in charge of administering the folder being shared should invite you to share it too. It should then appear on your computer as a subfolder of your main Dropbox folder as well as a folder under your Dropbox app.

Good luck.

Hi,

This question is for those who use multiple DropBox accounts.  I currently successfully use my personal Dropbox account on my Windows 10 computer with JAWS 2019 to move files between my laptop and iPhone.  I typically do this using Windows File Explorer, just as if drop box is any folder or drive on my laptop.  I’m now going to need to access another drop box account that someone has set up to share files for some committee work.   What should I expect that is different?  Can I access the files the same way I do now or will I have to use the Dropbox website?  Any other tips are appreciated, as I’m a bit nervous about being competent in the eyes of the other sighted committee members and of not messing up their files.

 

Thanks.

moderated Publisher and jaws2020?

Hi,

 

I just found out about Microsoft publisher, and would like to use it for a few tasks.

 

I opened it, and found a template for business cards, that I liked, so wrote my info on the template.

 

When I tried to read it, to ensure that everything was correct, jaws just said, “blank” rather than reading what I wrote.

 

Does anyone know if publisher can be used with jaws2020?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

moderated Re: reclassing list views in jaws?

Cohn, Jonathan
 

Hello,
That will all depend on the application. The JAWS reclassification tool will change a "window' object understanding from JAWS. Most Windows development environments these days do not represent every interface as a "sub-window" of the Top most window, but would instead use a object to represent that contro. In these cases, it has been my experience that window class tool does not have any effect. One can of course script JAWS to do just about anything, it is just a matter of determining if it is worthwhile to do this. If your application shows the list items as children of a single object or window and if that object is visible to either MSAA or UIA interfaces, then you can fairly easily do coding that can be expected to work even after the application has the next upgrade. If however you are looking at things by the location on the screen, then the slightest change to the program will probably break all your scripts. For example Anti-Virus systems are notoriously hard to script for because they don't want malicious software reconfiguring them and allowing their code to remain active.
In any case, give it a try. Changing classes is fairly easy and can also be easily backed out.

Hello Jonas:

Even though the installation manager installed the driver for the wireless dongle and allowed me to select my network and enter the network access key, when I eventually got to the desktop, in addition to not being able to install JAWS 2020, I could not download any windows updates, and that was after running the network troubleshooting program.

Hello everyone:

Yesterday, I installed Windows 10, version 19.09.

During the Windows 10 installation, I followed the prompts for Windows to
connect to the Asus Wireless Dongle.

When I completed the installation of Windows 10, I ran the installation file
for JAWS 2020. Not long after the installation process started, I received
the message that JAWS could not download a particular file from its server.
I was then informed that the installation process will be terminated.

Luckily, I had the installation for NVDA, which does not need to go on line
to download files from its server, in order to complete the installlation.

I tested the internet connection, by going to several web sites and logged
onto those sites with no problems. However, wenever I run I runn the JAWS
2020 installation file, I keep getting the same message.

Last year, someone on the list, posted the URL where one could download the
full installation file for JAWS.

If that person or someone on the list, has the URL, will they please let me
have it!

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Hello Bill:

Thank you for the link.

I downloaded the JAWS 2020, file size 854 MB.

Once I install JAWS 2020, I will be able to access the installation software on the CD, which came with the wireless dongle.

I have not found a way as yet, using either Narrator or NVDA, in order to be able to access the icon so I can install the software for the Asus wireless dongle.

Using JAWS, I have to use the JAWS cursor, to go to the top of the screen, make sure the JAWS cursor is on the first letter of the installation icon, then press the JAWS left mouse key, to activate the wireless dongle software. Once the software is loaded, the program is completely accessible.

Thank you again for the link.

Not that I have anything against offline installers, as I download these and use them not infrequently, but one has to realize that servers for the installers that do "on demand" downloading do go offline occasionally.  Sometimes it's for scheduled maintenance and sometimes it's not.  But, generally, if you try again later things will work just fine after those servers are online again.

Hi Jessica,

I can’t check this out because I recently had shoulder surgery and I’m not able to use the computer easily. But what you need to do is be in Outlook 365, go into the jaws settings and go to braille and set braille to structured mode. I think that should solve the problem. If you don’t know the exact stepS maybe someone else can chime in to help you get there.

Good luck!
