Alison,
How much RAM do you have? I've got 8 gigs and it doesn't seem to be
enough, especially when I've got Jaws, Outlook and OneDrive open at the
same time.

Hi!

Is it possible? Even NVDA has a Toolbar Explorer addon and I guess I would
need something like that in JAWS. Is there a way?

Here are some shortcut hotkeys worth remembering with the Zoom Windows client:

 

·        Alt + A Toggle to mute and unmute

·        Alt + U User taken to participants panel. Tab and Shift + Tab will cycle through them.

·        Alt + Y Raise and lower hand

·        Alt + H Move to Chat window. NVDA doesn't currently read alerts but will in next version.

Hello Justin,

 

I just went through my initial trip to the Zoom platform, and there are some good things to do before the call.

 

Follow the meeting link in the email invitation; if you don’t have that, ask the meeting coordinator to send one.

 

Tab until you get to the meeting link on the web page and press enter.  Since this is before the meeting, you will get an alert to that effect.  Tab to the audio control icon and press enter.  Tab through those buttons to test your headphones and microphone.  Using headphones is a good idea if you want to be able to use JAWS during the conference.  On keyboard commands, the mute button would be one to know; I don’t know off the top of my head.

 

You can then log out and log back in when the meeting is starting, or you can leave the web page up and you will be alerted when the meeting starts.

 

I found the experience quite good.  JAWS said some stuff, alerts on joining or leaving the meeting, whether my mike was muted or not.  The audio was very good, the other 3 participants sounding like they were sitting near each other.  Much nicer than a standard phone call.

 

Sincerely,

Tim Ford

Hello List members,

 

Later today, I am participating in my first Zoom conference event. I have downloadedZoom whose scripts are part of Jaws 2020.

I have made note of a number of keyboard commands to use within the Zoom platform.

I have located a pair of headphones to use during the conference.

Just prior to the event, I will click on the Join Link.

I know there is a hotkey to set up the audio link specific to the headphones.

I would appreciate any tips on how to maximize my participation as this is my maiden voyage specific to Zoom.

 

Peace and best to all, Justin .

Hi Justin,

If you're going to be using Zoom regularly, it may be worth downloading Jonathan Mosen's e-book on the topic which he has made free during the COVID-19 outbreak.

You can get it from www.mosen.org.

Yes.

I just tried it with the steps from a Microsoft article and it works.

I will give you the steps as well as provide the link.

IN your document, press Alt+f, I, p, e

Alt+f together, then I for info, p for protect, and e for encrypt.

BTW, this also works in Excel.

 

Here are the steps copied for the web site with the link at the end.

Protect a document with a password

Passwords are case-sensitive and can be a maximum of 15 characters long.

If you lose or forget your password, Word won't be able to recover it for you. Be sure to keep the a copy of the password in a safe place or create a strong password that you’ll remember.

1.  Go to File > Info > Protect Document > Encrypt with Password.

2.  Type a password, then type it again to confirm it.

3.  Save the file to make sure the password takes effect.

There is no really good method to do this.  Most can be worked around if the document is still in DOCX format.

It's not perfect, but I find it far more effective to save as PDF and send that out.  There are some who have PDF editors and know how to use them, but far fewer than the number who have MS-Office and know the tricks to get around protection.

If you really insist on sticking with DOCX you can use ALT+L,PE (Layout Ribbon, Restrict Editing), then navigate to the checkbox under Editing Restrictions and check it.  After it's checked, a dropdown box of options becomes accessible, the default is No Changes (Read Only), which is what you want.  Then navigate to the button, "Yes, start enforcing protection," and activate it.  At this point a dialog box comes up allowing you to choose password protection as the way to be able to unset editing restrictions or User Authentication.  Most use Password Protection, which makes you do the usual entering of the password you want in two boxes.  Then hit the OK key and the document can no longer be edited, even by you, unless you go back and turn off editing restrictions.

just to point something out, changing the attribute of a document file
to read-only protects the file from being saved as a modified file. so
it doesn't prevent the document from being read. for that, it would have
to be password protected that you and the recipient would need to know.

Hi Ann,
It really depends what type of document it is, .doc, .pdf or .txt etc,
and who you are protecting it from.
Making it a read only file is the simplest, and can be accomplished by
opening the file properties and checking the read only
checkbox on the general tab.
As for the password protection methods, there are various ways of doing this
depending on the software used to create the file or by third-party
software.
I am not well-versed in Microsoft Word, so I can't give any details on how
to password protect a Word Doc, but I am sure someone else can.
Hopefully others on-list can give more options.

readonly? Password protect it? How do I do either/both methods?

for what it is worth, from a note someone made from a different ml who knows:

There needs to be a clear distinction made here between an electronic signature, which is essentially embedding a scanned copy of someone's signature into a PDF at a specific location, and a digital signature, which has no "looks like a person's real signature" component at all but is generally legally binding.

I've just gone through trying to add both with Adobe Reader DC and have to report that I can find no way to do either with a screen reader.  Adobe has made a massive step back in accessibility with Reader DC.   I must admit, though, that I did not try NVDA's object navigation to try to get to the controls, and that at least has the potential to work, but may not, either.

If you are actually the signatory and want an electronic signature, then I'd strongly suggest that you set up the template you use to create the review in the first place such that your electronic signature is already in it.  If you have control over the electronic copy of the template, as well as the documents generated from it, this is a workable solution.

Hello all:

Is there any way that you can put a signature in a PDF Form using Adobe
Reader DC and JAWS?

I am trying to fill out a W9 Tax Form, and it is asking me for a
signature. How do you insert a signature into the PDF Form? Any help
would be appreciated.

Thanks.

just to point something out, changing the attribute of a document file to read-only protects the file from being saved as a modified file. so it doesn't prevent the document from being read. for that, it would have to be password protected that you and the recipient would need to know.

Hi Ann,
It really depends what type of document it is, .doc, .pdf or .txt etc,
and who you are protecting it from.
Making it a read only file is the simplest, and can be accomplished by
opening the file properties and checking the read only
checkbox on the general tab.
As for the password protection methods, there are various ways of doing this
depending on the software used to create the file or by third-party
software.
I am not well-versed in Microsoft Word, so I can't give any details on how
to password protect a Word Doc, but I am sure someone else can.
Hopefully others on-list can give more options.

HTH,
Rick

moderated Turning Off New Podcast Alert

Peter Donahue
 

Good morning everyone,

While we appreciate knowing when a new issue of FSCast is available receiving those alerts at 2:30 in the morning and having it mess up JAWS isn't something we wish to put up with. If someone could please tell me how to turn off this notification in JAWS it will be very much appreciated. Thanks much and stay safe.

How much RAM do you have? I've got 8 gigs and it doesn't seem to be enough, especially when I've got Jaws, Outlook and OneDrive open at the same time.

Hi!

Is it possible? Even NVDA has a Toolbar Explorer addon and I guess I would need something like that in JAWS. Is there a way?

Hi,

I've recently begun using firefox again after quite a while of using

asks if you want firefox to save your password for a particular web

moderated J 2020, magic14 reading newspaper

Stan Holdeman
 

Friends: In my local digital newspaper with both J2020 and Magic 14 running, I can pull my mouse pointer over certain text and that text is read as if in say all. But without magic and with only J 2020 running the same text is not read when I take the mouse pointer to it.

 

What is happening here?

There is no really good method to do this.  Most can be worked around if the document is still in DOCX format.

It's not perfect, but I find it far more effective to save as PDF and send that out.  There are some who have PDF editors and know how to use them, but far fewer than the number who have MS-Office and know the tricks to get around protection.

If you really insist on sticking with DOCX you can use ALT+L,PE (Layout Ribbon, Restrict Editing), then navigate to the checkbox under Editing Restrictions and check it.  After it's checked, a dropdown box of options becomes accessible, the default is No Changes (Read Only), which is what you want.  Then navigate to the button, "Yes, start enforcing protection," and activate it.  At this point a dialog box comes up allowing you to choose password protection as the way to be able to unset editing restrictions or User Authentication.  Most use Password Protection, which makes you do the usual entering of the password you want in two boxes.  Then hit the OK key and the document can no longer be edited, even by you, unless you go back and turn off editing restrictions.

moderated Seeking an accessible wifi analysis tool

Audiobookfan
 

I'm seeking an accessible wifi analysis tool for Windows 10. What I want is a tool that will provide an accessible list of the nearby networks along with the channel they broadcast on and their signal strength. The channel is most important because I think I'm experiencing interference from nearby routers since I live in an apartment complex. I want to be able to find the least busy channel so I can minimize the interference.

I had wanted an iOS app to do this, but in my research, I think Apple blocks apps from accessing the hardware in the phone that will do this. So, I guess I need a Windows tool that I can use with JAWS.

Thanks,
Jeff
