Re: Chrome and "save target as"

Adrian Spratt
 

True. But there are times when the download link can create problems. I wish I could give the link I encountered this morning as an example, but it's a password-protected, members-only website. that "save target as" option in the right mouse click menu has saved my bacon many times.

When you download with chrome--that is, press enter on the download
link--Chrome doesn't indicate that a file is downloading. Control-j
will tell you that it is, though.

Re: Chrome and combo boxes

Adrian Spratt
 

Alt-down arrow does nothing as a first key combination in the combo box I just tried. It doesn't work until I first press enter. I handle combo boxes by habit, so I can't be sure of this, but I think I always have to press enter first and then alt-down arrow. I'll be curious how anyone using Chrome handles combo boxes.

Re: Chrome is Useless!

Gerald Levy
 

Which is precisely why Eric Damery discourages JAWS users from installing Chrome. Google, which has shown little commitment to accessibility, still needs to make Chrome more screen-reader friendly, and so for now, IE an Firefox remain better browser options.

Re: Chrome is Useless!

Adrian Spratt
 

Hi, Brad.

I began experimenting with Chrome as a skeptic, but it works so fast that I've kept experimenting and just yesterday made it my default. My system is Win7, 64-bit, and I'm using the latest release of JAWS 16. The last thing I want is to be a crusader on something like this, but let me just comment on two of your points.

I'm not exactly sure what you're saying with your first point. But even if Chrome isn't asking if you want it to be your default, you can make it so by pressing enter on "settings" in the menu, then searching for default on the Google page that comes up.

As for your third point, Firefox is not named when I press insert-q.

I haven't tried to make another browser my default after doing so for Chrome, so I can't comment on your fourth and fifth points.

Still, while claims that Chrome is "fully" accessible are exaggerated, it isn't "useless." It seems to me that all three main browsers present accessibility problems, and it's a question of picking your poison. A lot might depend on how a particular browser works with the websites a screenreader user tends to visit most often. But I'm perplexed Why Firefox and Chrome should be interacting with each other on your system to the detriment of Chrome.

Chrome and combo boxes

Hi. While browsing with Chrome, I'm having difficulty exiting combo boxes while preserving my choices. With IE, and I think also Firefox, I usually (1) press enter, then (2) alt-down arrow, then (3) arrow down to my choice, (4) keep focus there and (5) press alt-up arrow. Step 5 preserves my choice and takes me out of the box.

With Chrome, step 5 doesn't work. Instead, I need to press enter on my choice. However, I'm still in the combo box. Alt-up arrow doesn't take me out, or if it does, I lose my choice. In one case, the wrong choice is shown.

Just now, pressing enter on my choice and then tabbing to the next field took me out of the combo box into the next field. Is this the only way of exiting a combo box in Chrome while preserving your choice? What if there isn't another field? (I haven't been able to test this possibility yet.)

Re: Chrome is Useless!

Hello Brad,
If you're using Windows 7 or later with a start menu, you can type remove, then arrow down to add remove, then arrow down to Google Chrome. Then tab to the right, I think twice, and press enter on remove program. This should remove all vestiges of the program, but just to make certain, I would go to my C drive, and arrow down to Program files (X86). Press enter on this folder, and arrow down to a folder called Google, (if it is still there), then delete this folder. You should be good to go and back where you started before you installed Google Chrome.
All the best,
Dennis

Re: Jaws and the Cloud, was Jfw Digest, Vol 54, Issue 7

Peter Donahue
 

Hello Jim and everyone,

It's possible to have it both ways. JAWS could be directed to store
a user's settings locally for those who prefer that setup or store them in
the cloud for users wanting easy access to them in the event of a computer
crash or if one buys a new computer. During installation if the cloud option
is selected JFW could be directed to retrieve your user settings from the
cloud so they can be reloaded with ease. This doesn't need to be an
either/or proposition.

Having JAWS totally in the cloud would scare the daylights out of me!
However, having JAWS settings in the cloud is no less of a security concern!

In my view, the ONLY thing that makes sense is to have a "fail-safe" way to
access your JAWS settings which is "resident" on your PC/lap top/tablet.
That way, people, who DO NOT want to use the cloud, will not be forced to do
so, and access to these settings would be available even if your PC/lap
top/tablet is not connected to the internet at the time.

I ask you... is the cloud REALLY NECESSARY? My response is clearly NO!

The biggest advantage of having Jaws in the cloud in my opinion would
be that it wouldn't be effecting the operation of your PC. It would
also be much easier to use Jaws on multiple computers as you would
just need to log into the cloud on whatever computer you are using. As
far as security goes, for real hackers as long as a computer is
connected to the internet periodically it doesn't matter weather the
info is on the cloud or the hard drive they can still access it.
Should be interesting what will happen with this, but I am all for the
cloud.

Subject: RE: Jaws and the Cloud, was Re: Jfw Digest, Vol 54, Issue 7

Good evening Peter:

Over the last several years, we have seen a lot of news about some
exceedingly security-conscious organizations, e.g. US Government,
being hacked into. So, I do not believe that anything is "perfectly"
safe; but,
I
do believe that I am better off when I keep personal information very
close to home. In my view, no "cloud" is hacker-proof.

This feature may be seen by many as a good idea; but, I strongly
believe that users should be given the choice of where their JAWS
settings are saved! This kind of stuff is just too important to put
out into an ethernet cloud - public, or private! If I do not have an
internet signal, what will happen? Will I just have to wait until my
signal returns before I can use JAWS again. And, what happens if JAWS
access is needed in an emergency?

In short, there MUST be a "fail-safe" way to access JAWS settings when
desired/required!

To be honest, finding a way to keep the Merge Utility would seem to be
a more "current" problem to resolve, rather than "where" JAWS settings
are stored. It still confounds me that it would be left out in JAWS
17; but, I am only a "user".

For years, I have considered JAWS to be about the best screen reader,
despite its various problems. However, my perception of how Version
17 has been planned, and especially regarding how much it appears that
this version was just not very-well thought out, is causing second
thoughts on my part.

Perhaps, I'm a dinosaur; but, I bet that other JAWS users have the
same concern that I have expressed. Frankly, I want to KEEP my
privacy as long as I can, and I also would prefer that control of my
"necessary" aids be left in MY hands.

It is my hope that FS will keep these concerns in mind when going forward.
For instance, are there any plans to "re-introduce" the Merge Utility
in an upcoming "update" to Version 17? And, despite your confidence
in "cloud storage" of JAWS settings, might there be some thought to
giving users that "fail-safe" of which I wrote?

That's all for now. Thanks for listening.

Good afternoon,

There are public and private clouds. FS would obviously use a
private cloud to address privacy concerns. We use a number of cloud
applications and have not had issues with our privacy being
compromized or our devices being hacked. Being able to have JAWS
reload user settings and configurations from the cloud would be a
welcome feature in a future version.

Hello everyone,

For some having JAWS store your user settings in the cloud is big.
I have made this suggestion to FS for some time and would like to see
it become a reality. Your authorization code would be stored with
your user settings allowing JAWS to retrieve information such as
saved settings whenever you upgrade to a new version or install and
authorize it on another device. Bring it on FS!

Forgive my not understanding this simple thing. I am missing something.
I'm using Chrome to find it. Can IE be used to find it and download it and
have it work with Chrome? Or do client programs need a browser for download
at all?

Any input would be appreciated.

Hi Andre,

Hi David,

This is what I found using Control-L in Chrome. On my machine it works with
a minor twist. After hitting Control-L and typing or pasting a URL into the
edit field you must hit the down arrow key one time for JAWS to speak what
you have entered. Then hitting the enter key at this point takes you where
you want to go.

I'm not sure how it works on other machines but this is how it works on
mine. And works well.

Also thanks for the link for web accessible twitter and the Twitter client
Chicken Nugget you sent. I am checking out both to see which way is best.
Very encouraged and can't wait to see the podcast you come up with for

Hi there,
Are you trying to get to Twitter's web site? If you are, just press ctrl + L
and type www.twitter.com It should go to the Twitter web site just like any
other site. I just tried it and it did. However, the Twitter main web site
is very difficult to use.
You should try this web site:
www.easychirp.com
That is an accessible web site that links into your twitter account, but it
is much easier to navigate and to use than the main Twitter site. Even
better, is to use a client like Chicken Nugget to work with your Twitter

you want to do right in a desk top program instead of being on the web at

Re: Jaws and the Cloud, was Jfw Digest, Vol 54, Issue 7

Drew Hunthausen
 

I haven't read up on the features of the cloud or any details, but one
significant benefit in my opinion is the ability to access your settings
from any computer. When I go somewhere that I can't take my lap top but need
to use a computer having Jaws settings in the cloud would allow me to use
the demo version of jaws and still use my own settings. Also for people
using public computers like at a work place or a school with jaws on them
would be able to have all their own settings. The cloud is really no less
safe than having it stored on the computer if a skilled hacker wants access.

The biggest advantage of having Jaws in the cloud in my opinion would
be that it wouldn't be effecting the operation of your PC. It would
also be much easier to use Jaws on multiple computers as you would
just need to log into the cloud on whatever computer you are using. As
far as security goes, for real hackers as long as a computer is
connected to the internet periodically it doesn't matter weather the
info is on the cloud or the hard drive they can still access it.
Should be interesting what will happen with this, but I am all for the
cloud.

Subject: RE: Jaws and the Cloud, was Re: Jfw Digest, Vol 54, Issue 7

Good evening Peter:

Over the last several years, we have seen a lot of news about some
exceedingly security-conscious organizations, e.g. US Government,
being hacked into. So, I do not believe that anything is "perfectly"
safe; but,
I
do believe that I am better off when I keep personal information very
close to home. In my view, no "cloud" is hacker-proof.

This feature may be seen by many as a good idea; but, I strongly
believe that users should be given the choice of where their JAWS
settings are saved! This kind of stuff is just too important to put
out into an ethernet cloud - public, or private! If I do not have an
internet signal, what will happen? Will I just have to wait until my
signal returns before I can use JAWS again. And, what happens if JAWS
access is needed in an emergency?

In short, there MUST be a "fail-safe" way to access JAWS settings when
desired/required!

To be honest, finding a way to keep the Merge Utility would seem to be
a more "current" problem to resolve, rather than "where" JAWS settings
are stored. It still confounds me that it would be left out in JAWS
17; but, I am only a "user".

For years, I have considered JAWS to be about the best screen reader,
despite its various problems. However, my perception of how Version
17 has been planned, and especially regarding how much it appears that
this version was just not very-well thought out, is causing second
thoughts on my part.

Perhaps, I'm a dinosaur; but, I bet that other JAWS users have the
same concern that I have expressed. Frankly, I want to KEEP my
privacy as long as I can, and I also would prefer that control of my
"necessary" aids be left in MY hands.

It is my hope that FS will keep these concerns in mind when going forward.
For instance, are there any plans to "re-introduce" the Merge Utility
in an upcoming "update" to Version 17? And, despite your confidence
in "cloud storage" of JAWS settings, might there be some thought to
giving users that "fail-safe" of which I wrote?

That's all for now. Thanks for listening.

Good afternoon,

There are public and private clouds. FS would obviously use a
private cloud to address privacy concerns. We use a number of cloud
applications and have not had issues with our privacy being
compromized or our devices being hacked. Being able to have JAWS
reload user settings and configurations from the cloud would be a
welcome feature in a future version.

Hello everyone,

For some having JAWS store your user settings in the cloud is big.
I have made this suggestion to FS for some time and would like to see
it become a reality. Your authorization code would be stored with
your user settings allowing JAWS to retrieve information such as
saved settings whenever you upgrade to a new version or install and
authorize it on another device. Bring it on FS!

The biggest advantage of having Jaws in the cloud in my opinion would be
that it wouldn't be effecting the operation of your PC. It would also be
much easier to use Jaws on multiple computers as you would just need to
log
into the cloud on whatever computer you are using. As far as security
goes,
for real hackers as long as a computer is connected to the internet
periodically it doesn't matter weather the info is on the cloud or the
hard
drive they can still access it. Should be interesting what will happen
with
this, but I am all for the cloud.

Good evening Peter:

Over the last several years, we have seen a lot of news about some
exceedingly security-conscious organizations, e.g. US Government, being
hacked into. So, I do not believe that anything is "perfectly" safe; but,
I
do believe that I am better off when I keep personal information very
close
to home. In my view, no "cloud" is hacker-proof.

This feature may be seen by many as a good idea; but, I strongly believe
that users should be given the choice of where their JAWS settings are
saved! This kind of stuff is just too important to put out into an
ethernet
cloud - public, or private! If I do not have an internet signal, what
will
happen? Will I just have to wait until my signal returns before I can use
JAWS again. And, what happens if JAWS access is needed in an emergency?

In short, there MUST be a "fail-safe" way to access JAWS settings when
desired/required!

To be honest, finding a way to keep the Merge Utility would seem to be a
more "current" problem to resolve, rather than "where" JAWS settings are
stored. It still confounds me that it would be left out in JAWS 17; but,
I
am only a "user".

For years, I have considered JAWS to be about the best screen reader,
despite its various problems. However, my perception of how Version 17
has
been planned, and especially regarding how much it appears that this
version
was just not very-well thought out, is causing second thoughts on my part.

Perhaps, I'm a dinosaur; but, I bet that other JAWS users have the same
concern that I have expressed. Frankly, I want to KEEP my privacy as long
as I can, and I also would prefer that control of my "necessary" aids be
left in MY hands.

It is my hope that FS will keep these concerns in mind when going forward.
For instance, are there any plans to "re-introduce" the Merge Utility in
an
upcoming "update" to Version 17? And, despite your confidence in "cloud
storage" of JAWS settings, might there be some thought to giving users
that
"fail-safe" of which I wrote?

That's all for now. Thanks for listening.

Jim H

Good afternoon,

There are public and private clouds. FS would obviously use a private
cloud to address privacy concerns. We use a number of cloud applications
and
have not had issues with our privacy being compromized or our devices
being
hacked. Being able to have JAWS reload user settings and configurations
from
the cloud would be a welcome feature in a future version.

Hi all,
Having all settings, scripts, and all changes we make to JAWS stored
in
the
cloud excites me a lot. If FS created a service for us to do this, We
would
never lose our settings and our own scripts ever again. I agree. Bring
it on.

Hello everyone,

For some having JAWS store your user settings in the cloud is big.
I have made this suggestion to FS for some time and would like to see
it become a reality. Your authorization code would be stored with your
user settings allowing JAWS to retrieve information such as saved
settings whenever you upgrade to a new version or install and
authorize it on another device. Bring it on FS!

The only possible benefit I could see of allowing jaws to save
settings to the cloud is if they loosen the licensing system so that
it is easier for a single user to use many devices.

For one, I will continue to ignore requests to store "anything" in

online, about myself, and don't want any additional windows into my
life. If FS has this in mind for saving/changing our JAWS settings,
I will strongly protest.
Of
course, before protesting, I will wait to see what happens.

Hi David,

Would you have a link to the Qube website to download Qube? I may not have
been on the right page/site.

Hi Andre,
I really like the Qube. I know you will too. If you have any questions at
all, please ask me. Many of the key commands use Windows + ctrl, + some
letter. Let me know if you can download it. If you press Windows + ctrl + n,
it will bring up all of the key commands, and if you tab, you can change any
key command to one that you like. Take care, and have a great one.

Hi Andre,
You are so welcome. If you want a free twitter client, there are two others
that I would recommend that are just as good as Chicken Nugget. I know that
Chicken Nugget does cost money. Here are two more to check out that are
free. The first client is TW blue. The second one is one I use, and it is
called The Qube. Both of those are free downloads and are very good. I
really like the Qube, because you can use it with all key commands. You do
not have to work with the menus at all. I can send and reply to tweets so
fast using the Qube. Get a hold of me anytime at my personal email or on
Skype. My Skype ID is:
david.moore3507. Take care.

Hi David,

This is what I found using Control-L in Chrome. On my machine it works with
a minor twist. After hitting Control-L and typing or pasting a URL into the
edit field you must hit the down arrow key one time for JAWS to speak what
you have entered. Then hitting the enter key at this point takes you where
you want to go.

I'm not sure how it works on other machines but this is how it works on
mine. And works well.

Also thanks for the link for web accessible twitter and the Twitter client
Chicken Nugget you sent. I am checking out both to see which way is best.
Very encouraged and can't wait to see the podcast you come up with for
Chrome.

Hi there,
Are you trying to get to Twitter's web site? If you are, just press ctrl + L
and type www.twitter.com It should go to the Twitter web site just like any
other site. I just tried it and it did. However, the Twitter main web site
is very difficult to use.
You should try this web site:
www.easychirp.com
That is an accessible web site that links into your twitter account, but it
is much easier to navigate and to use than the main Twitter site. Even
better, is to use a client like Chicken Nugget to work with your Twitter
account, because you can send and receive tweets, reply to tweets, and all
you want to do right in a desk top program instead of being on the web at
all. Take care.

I may be doing something wrong. At the Google home page in Chrome I want to
go to Twitter.com and can't seem to get there. Tried keystrokes common in
IE but didn't work in Chrome.



Does anyone know the keystroke commands to get to Twitter? Thanks
