I am using firefox or chrome and do not get this at all, it gives me
the option to save the file or open it in my current default reader.
My only problem is that sometimes when I open the document, I don't
get anything, but it usually works.

Hi Jonathan,

 

If I did get into Flexible web it was completely by accident. I’ll check it out and hopefully resolve my issue. I do, however, occasionally have weird Jaws behavior in other apps, so I fear it might go deeper. But I will definitely try Flexible web settings first. If that doesn’t do it, it’s a call to tech support for me.

 

Best,

Norma

JM Casey
 

I don’t know Pocket Podcasts or what it is or how it works, but have you tried using the jaws cursor/left mouse click? That is often  a solution. Sometimes too you could route the jaws cursor, which is the same as the mouse pointer, to a location on screen and then actaully click the mouse.

 

If the programme is one of those new Universal Apps that doesn’t actaully work with the JAWS cursor, the touch cursor might do what you need – I haven’t a lot of experience with that as I tend to avoid those apps. There is a new cursor in JAWS that is supposed to replace JAWS cursor in some apps called the Scan cursor, but as I am not using JAWS 2020, I am not really sure how it works.

A previous answer to the parent document question. It worked!


I assume this is happening in Internet Explorer.
Do the following .
Alt t - Tools
o - Internet Options
Control+tab to Programs
tab to Manage Add-ons
Tab to Filter combo box
Move up to all Add-ons and hit enter to select
Tab to the list of add-ons
The Adobe entry should look like this.
Name Adobe PDF Reader
Publisher Adobe Inc.
Status Disabled
Architecture 32-bit and 64-bit
If it is not disabled you need to make this change.
Open parent document is caused by IE trying to open the document in the
browser. By disabling this add-on it should cause Adobe reader to be opened
externally so you can read the document.

Tim, you can change it in the Window settings App.

You might need to do a search in the Apps search box for “default”, chose Default Files. There are a lot of extensions in the group, but you can tab until you finally  get to PDF. The default will be Edge, press inter then find your choice and press inter.

 

Usually you can highlight a file, press the applications key and look for “open With,” but I didn’t see it on the PDF file I chose.
