Hello, Jim and all members of this list.  My name is Elise Berkley and I am new to the list.  Jim, or anyone, can you explain what VLC is?  I have never heard of this program, and I like to know everything – laugh, laugh!!  Thanks.

Heya folks,

 

Another little bug bare with VLC and Jaws, is there a way to stop Jaws speaking the next track without totally silencing Jaws in VLC?.  This happens also when VLC is minimized to the taskbar and is kind of annoying especially if one’s making a playlist for a party etc and Jaws keeps announcing the next track.

 

Cheers,

 

Jim

 


Playing BlueRay Format On A PC

If you play movies in the Blue Ray format on your PC, what JAWS friendly program are you using?  I have Power DVD 9 that came with my Windows 7 computer, but I am wondering if there's something better.

Hi Tom,
yes, File explorer is equivalent to Windows Explorer in Windows 7 and earlier. It mostly works the same way, with a few minor differences, and the menus and toolbar replaced by a ribbon.

I agree to a degree with this statement. I have found JAWS 15 to be much more stable over 16 and 17.
This is why I have a laptop with W 7 with 15 on it and one withW 10 with 16 and 17 on it.

Bob, I reiterate what Michael says. Yes, you can. And there is a mailing list devoted solely to accessibility issues with the various SiriusXM players. It is located on Freelists, where this very JFW list used to reside a few years ago. Visit https://www.freelists.org/list/siriusxm-access and follow the instructions to subscribe.

Having said this, I will tell you that mostly I use my iPhone to listen to SiriusXM, since I usually am away from my Windows computer when I do this. But that's simply a lifestyle choice. Many users don't like the SiriusXM iOs app; but the company has improved its accessibility tremendously in the past few months, and I find it much easier than before to locate and navigate to a channel that I like and to do these things quickly.

I have seen both running on an operating system before without any issues.  Every so often I encounter a situation where the two video drivers for JAWS and ZT conflict, but that is rare when it happens.  Good luck!

Hi – I’m wondering if anyone is using Jaws speech with Zoomtext magnification. I did use this combo for years, but then abandoned Zoomtext in favor of Magic when it seemed almost impossible to get Zoomtext and Jaws to work together. This was at least 4-5 years ago that I made the switch. Now I’m having some problems with Magic and other products, like J-Say and Matlab (latter with Magic v. 13, so had to roll back to v. 12). Before I start a trial of Zoomtext, I would like to hear about any experiences out there with this combo. I always preferred the Zoomtext product for magnification.

Thanks, Mike, but this is the situation where you’re on another website, you’ve put an item in the cart and now you’re going through the checkout process. You select PayPal as your payment method, and then you’re taken to a PayPal page. The “classic” option isn’t shown here. My past experiences were that at this point, the log-in page would appear. Now it doesn’t. Instead, I’m getting a page with a log-in line that JAWS does not recognize as a button. I press enter on it anyway, but I’m taken to the credit card info page that I don’t want.

 

This looks like a change at PayPal because I encountered it both times I tried to complete a transaction today, on two different websites. I haven’t used either website before, and I like to use PayPal in such cases because of the payment info shield it provides.

All of a sudden, Paypal isn't working for me at a critical point. It used to be that when going through a website's checkout process, I'd click on Paypal and be taken to a page where I entered my email and password to complete the transaction. Now I can't get to those edit fields. Instead, I am taken to the option where you fill out your credit card info, which is a second Paypal option. The button to the log-in page takes me to the same page as this credit card info page. Sighted assistance confirms that the button to log in does take you to the page I want, but JAWS apparently can't work with it. I've tried with IE11 and Chrome. Win7.

Has anyone else encountered this obstacle and maybe even found a way around it?

I have a follow-up question. Does anyone know how to obtain a manual for VLC; is such a thing available on the Video Lan site? Those buttons and boxes available with the touch cursor are unlabeled. This is no reflection on JAWS, as a sighted family member couldn't see any labels either, so it would help to know what the Sam Hill they are, so the user knows what he is pushing or checking.
