That feature is on by default, and the dialog should be presented unless you've turned it off.

See the Mozilla support page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/password-manager-remember-delete-edit-logins#w_managing-usernames-and-passwords and head for the section on Disabling the Password Manager, where, of course, you can do the reverse to re-enable it.

Well I just tried them all and I get the  same when ever colors are spoken I am using your email.

 

I get colors defalt and white and the defalt I am going to think is black, and then that would be black on white.

 

So how do we know the color of text when it always says defalt?

Hi George,

 

Since I only played around with reading colors for the 1st time yesterday the only things I can suggest is;

1. Try a different scheme.

2. See if invoking the, Insert + 5, on the number row keystroke will say what the, Default, color is.  Remember when invoking this keystroke the foreground color is reported 1st and the background color is reported 2nd.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I tried your suggestion below and it reads the colors, but one issue…

 

It says defalt color on white.  How do we know what the defalt color is.

 

Do you think that is a bug?

 

I tried a couple of choices with color in the title and get the same result.

 

What do you think?

Hi Mike,

 

Let me first state, I've never tried doing this so you might have to experiment a little.  While in Outlook you can try changing the scheme to see how this works, and to change schemes try the following.

Note:  Take notice of the highlighted scheme when opening the schemes list, so you know which one to revert back to for your default.

1. While in Outlook press, Insert, Alt + S, to open the list of schemes.

2. Navigate up / down through the list and the scheme I would try first is, Colors.  With your chosen scheme highlighted / selected press enter.  Now see if Jaws reads / reports as you want.

Also pressing, Insert + 5, on the number row will report foreground & background colors.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Which setting is for getting JAWS to automatically announce when colors change in an email, as I am reading the email? Say the email says, “Tweak what is in red.” I will not always know when to press insert+f.

Now tab down under Permissions and keep scrolling down until you get

Hi Cher,

 

I'm late to this thread and I'm sorry if I'm repeating something that has already been mentioned.  Try having the PDF files downloaded so you can read them with Adobe instead of Chrome opening them, steps are below.

1. Press, Alt + F, to open the Chrome context menu, and up arrow to, Settings, and press enter.  Or press, Alt + F, then press the letter, S, to open the menu / settings.
2. Tab to, Privacy & Security link, press enter, then tab to Site Settings link, press enter.
3. Now tab 25 times or so to, link PDF Documents, press enter, tab 1 time to, Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome Toggle button, and press your spacebar so that Jaws reports, Pressed Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome Toggle button.
Note:  It's very important that you hear the word, PRESSED, because this means this setting is turned on.

Under this you'll find a button that says "Set as Default PDF Handler" and this must be selected.

I'm not sure what you mean by 'search for pdf'- but if you're talking about
the option to download rather than open, I have that set to download.

Cher,

Have you unchecked the option in chrome to open pdf's?
Go to Chrome menu with alt-f, settings and search for the word: pdf You can
uncheck the option to open pdf.

Regards, marten

Just checked- and I already have .pdfs set to download. There must be
something else I'm missing right now. I'll see if I can pin it down. Thanks
everyone for all the good efforts.

Hi,



To open the PDF in Adobe instead of Chrome follow the steps below



Press ALT + F to open chrome menu and scroll down to settings.
Tab to "Privacy and security" hit enter.
Tab to "Site Settings" and Enter
Now tab down under Permissions and keep scrolling down until you get
PDF documents Use to space bar to toggle ON "Download PDF files instead of
automatically opening them in Chrome"



This will download the PDF files instead of opening it directly in your
browser.

And from the downloads you can open these pdf files with Adobe.

I don’t have an example right now- so will watch out for one.

Hi again, Don & Cher. Did you ever get Adobe to download from Google Chrome so you can click on the file and open it in Adobe Reader?

Not doing that here- mine was already set for Adobe Reader for .pdf. The file type .pdfxml has no default. What should that be set to?

I’ve had no problem getting Chrome to open PDF files in Adobe. Here’s how I do it in Windows 10:

 

  1. Press the windows key – you should be in the Search dialog box of the Start Menu.
  2. Type “default” (without the quotes) – and Jaws should say ‘default apps’. If it doesn’t, arrow down till you hear it and press enter.
  3. Press tab until you hear ‘Choose default apps by file type’.
  4. Press tab until you reach .Pdf. This can take a while as you have to get through all the other file types until you reach .PDF. I hold down the tab key and let go occasionally to hear what letter of the alphabet I’m at.

Once you get to .PDF, Jaws should tell you what the default program it will open in. On yours it should say ‘Google Chrom. Press space and tab until you hear ‘Adobe Acrobat’.

Then I just press Alt and F4 to close the program.

To check that it’s worked, follow the above instructions up to step four or open a PDF file in Google Chrome.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Cheers

Zel

Hi again, Don and Cher. I was wrong in my last message. I just hadn’t found out how to cause PDF’s to be handled in a way other than to be opened in Google Chrome. I am right in that you cannot cause Google Chrome to open files in Adobe. However if you do the following, you can cause them to be downloaded, instead of opening in the browser.

 

1. Open Google Chrome.

2. Go to Settings.

3. Arrow down to Site Settings and press ENTER.

4. Go to Privacy and Security. TAB until you get to the PDF documents link and press ENTER.

5. Now choose the  Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome button, and press SPACE.

 

Now, if you encounter a PDF file on a web page, you can download it, then view it in Adobe.

Where can I find a setting to tell Chrome to open PDFS in Adobe instead of the browser? Thanks very much for your assist 😊

Hi Mike,
 
Let me first state, I've never tried doing this so you might have to experiment a little.  While in Outlook you can try changing the scheme to see how this works, and to change schemes try the following.
Note:  Take notice of the highlighted scheme when opening the schemes list, so you know which one to revert back to for your default.
1. While in Outlook press, Insert, Alt + S, to open the list of schemes.
2. Navigate up / down through the list and the scheme I would try first is, Colors.  With your chosen scheme highlighted / selected press enter.  Now see if Jaws reads / reports as you want.
Also pressing, Insert + 5, on the number row will report foreground & background colors.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi,

 

Which setting is for getting JAWS to automatically announce when colors change in an email, as I am reading the email? Say the email says, “Tweak what is in red.” I will not always know when to press insert+f.

 

Thank you,

Mike
