Are you opening these PDF files in IE or Adobe? If in IE, you might switch

Subject: Reading PDF with Jaws

I periodically have problems reading PDFs. I receive message that says it
needs to search IE for a fix. . and then it comes back saying that a
resolution could not be found. I know at one time I had to update the file
associations so that it used Adobe to access PDFs. That still seems to be in
place. Does anyone have this same problem or know of a resolution?

I know when the title bar states the document is empty I have to open it
using the Freedom Import Printer in OPenBook . So, this is a different
problem.

Thanks for any help.

Carolyn, FS did a neat tutorial on the Office ribbon a while back. The
titles at the top really tell it all. Using Office ribbon allows you to
navigate through the various commands, or go straight to them with the
known shortcut keys, whereas turning on Virtual Ribbon disables the
shortcuts you already know. I decided it was easier to learn the Ms way
of doing things.

I think that if someone could sort of break the ribbon code, that it

Subject: RE: keystrokes vs virtual ribbons

Well, I see a lot of advantages using the virtual ribbons, especially
when we are trying to teach someone how to use office with jaws. If we
say to a blind person that is not familiar with MS Excel, press tab
repeatedly until you hear "Calculate Sheet Button It doesn't make any
sense at all, they are not understanding where is it, they are not
understanding why this item is there, just they are understanding that
calculate formula button is something that is there, and that they need
to press tab many times until they hear calculate formula button.
Now, it is very time consuming, and it reduces efficiency .
Of course, we can remember the keystrokes, but how many keystrokes do we
need to remember then?
Isn't it better that we have an idea about where something is, and we
get there with keystrokes, and just with up or down arrow we find what we
need?
It is time consuming, but a lot less than pressing tab many times.
Moreover, if we are reading a manual, the manuals are created for sighted
people, they are going to say, go to clipboard and click on copy format,
the manuals are not going to say press tab 16 times and press enter on
copy format.
I am not saying that virtual ribbons are great, because they are not that
great, but it is important to understand the structure of the ribbons,
and it would be good that we are allow to use keystrokes when we are
using the virtual ribbons, it will improve our efficiency a lot.
And efficiency is something that can give us a job, or not.

Hi Pablo,

If you set your jaws announcements to speak access keys (I think?), then
jaws will tell you the keystrokes as you tab through the ribbons without
turning on virtual ribbons. I have an Excel spreadsheet that lists all
the various ribbon commands and associated shortcuts/keystrokes. Yes, I
am a little type A that way. <g> I'd be glad to share this document with
you if you'd like. I don't use Excel enough to have a similar list, but I
may get around to making one up one of these days.

Re: keystrokes vs virtual ribbons

Londa Peterson
 

In the virtual ribbons, you can use first letter navigationh instead. The
ribbon keystrokes don't work with the virtual ribbons on. If there is more
than one thing that starts with the same letter, just navigate to the item
you want and then press enter. Hope this helps.

Also, when you call a university, ask to be connected with the disabled
students survices (DSS) department. You will probably have better luck this
way even if yu don't reach anyone and have to leave a message. In my
experience, leaving a message or e-mail to a general number does not get a
response because the person that reads or listen to them doesn't have any
idea about disabled student accessibility. Good luck

Pablo.

Each university has a specific department that coordinates all ADA related
issues between faculty, staff and student body. You need to ask for the
contact information of this specific department and engage of them directly.
Certainly, as you have experienced, if you don't take the initiative no one
else will. The lesson to be learned here is not to wait for anyone to call
you back rather, follow up with them based on a time line that you deem
acceptable.

Best of success...

Hi all,

I am looking for a university where I can do online classes for Human
Resources Business administration and management in the US . I have been in
contact by phone with several universities but when I ask them about the
accessibility on their web sites, or accessibility in the books that I need
to buy for each class, then their answers ends. I have been in contact with
17 different universities online, and all of them said that the
accessibility department will call me back, but I have been waiting more
than one year for those calls.

Guys, are you studying in Universities online?

Does anybody know a university, where their online classes are accessible?

And also the books are accessible?

My wife is low vision, and she had a lot of accessibility problems in the
university where she was studying . I am totally blind, and I have no way to
study if I found a platform not accessible, or books not accessible either.

Does anybody here know system better, what I can do if I need to continue my
education after I lost my vision?

What are the accessible resources today?

Thanks for all,

P

Re: keystrokes vs virtual ribbons

Pablo Morales
 

Thanks David, Yes I read before this point about control left or gith arrow,
it is really helpful, I didn't know this keystrokes to navigate by groups.
Would be nice if when press tab inside a group, jaws go back to the first
item in that group instead jump to the other group. Any way, it is very
helpful, thanks David.

Subject: Re: keystrokes vs virtual ribbons

Hi Pablo,
when using the standard windows keystrokes to navigate the ribbon in office
2010 or later, you can use the keystrokes ctrl+left/right arrow to move
between the groups of controls on the active tab - this can greatly reduce
the number of tabs that have to be pressed.

The following guide to file explorer in windows 8.1 has a section on the
ribbon. There are some minor differences between the ribbon in file explorer
and office, but no major ones.

Using the virtual ribbon, there is a way to know what are the keystrokes
associated with each item in the ribbons?

Use the ribbons helps a lot to understand the structure of the ribbons, with
the virtual ribbon off, is time consuming and is very easy to get lost
navigating with the tab key only. But with the virtual ribbons on, the
keystrokes doesn't work, and sometimes I don't know what is worse, if the
virtual ribbons on or off. But if I need to get to a place in the ribbon, I
have no way to learn the keystrokes, only deactivating the virtual ribbons
and pressing tab many many times, and probably getting lost.

So I see both ways very inconvenient.

Is there a way to get the keystrokes and at the same time keeping the logic
structure of the ribbons,?

I am trying to teach people to use MS word, and excel, but the ribbons is
very hard to make them understand the structure of each ribbons, but the
ribbon as unique tool using these programs is not going to be so efficient
in the future either.



So there is a way to get the keystrokes when we are navigating through the
virtual ribbons, and like this once we know where and what is the structure
of the ribbons, just use the keystrokes associated with each item on the
ribbons?

Thanks

Thanks. Interestingly, if I press Alt V, P, N, I cannot press O or R
afterward. It kicks me out of the menu.

The status line in outlook 2010 says 'filter applied, 10%". I don't know
what is being filtered or how to get rid of it. I went into view and
sniffed around, hit all the 'clear all' buttons I could find, and it
still says 'filtered applied, 10%". It says there are
2794 unread messages in the inbox, but I don't know how many are showing.

Any rescue would be appreciated!!!

Re: filters in outlook 2010

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

My status line, now that Microsoft Disability worked on it in Outlook
2013 says something like:

You have 16 messages in your inbox; one unread; connectivity to server;
filter applied 10 percent.

It used to just give that filter message. I hated it. I like to know how
many messages that I have read and unread. I really don't care anything
about filter and how much, as long as my computer works.

Another thing that I had to do in Outlook, and I can't remember how I
did, but when I found it by accident, I went into all my boxes and gave
the command so that if a message is unread, it continues to say unread
even if I have arrowed across it. I can't remember that command, would
have to go on a fishing expedition to do it again.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Also, when you call a university, ask to be connected with the disabled
students survices (DSS) department. You will probably have better luck this
way even if yu don't reach anyone and have to leave a message. In my
experience, leaving a message or e-mail to a general number does not get a
response because the person that reads or listen to them doesn't have any
idea about disabled student accessibility. Good luck

Pablo.

Each university has a specific department that coordinates all ADA related
issues between faculty, staff and student body. You need to ask for the
contact information of this specific department and engage of them directly.
Certainly, as you have experienced, if you don't take the initiative no one
else will. The lesson to be learned here is not to wait for anyone to call
you back rather, follow up with them based on a time line that you deem
acceptable.

Best of success...

Subject: Accessible education university in US

Hi all,

I am looking for a university where I can do online classes for Human
Resources Business administration and management in the US . I have been in
contact by phone with several universities but when I ask them about the
accessibility on their web sites, or accessibility in the books that I need
to buy for each class, then their answers ends. I have been in contact with
17 different universities online, and all of them said that the
accessibility department will call me back, but I have been waiting more
than one year for those calls.

Guys, are you studying in Universities online?

Does anybody know a university, where their online classes are accessible?

And also the books are accessible?

My wife is low vision, and she had a lot of accessibility problems in the
university where she was studying . I am totally blind, and I have no way to
study if I found a platform not accessible, or books not accessible either.

Does anybody here know system better, what I can do if I need to continue my
education after I lost my vision?

What are the accessible resources today?

Thanks for all,

P

Re: Tunein Radio has all NFL and MLB for $7.95 a month with 10 day freetrial.

They must have slipped the NFL stuff in there quietly. I thought all they had was MLB, audio books, and the rest of Tunein was the free stuff we all have for free with the site or app.

Hi All,

Back a few weeks ago, I asked what accessible web sites folks knew of that included NFL and MLB. It was mentioned how expensive and cumbersome the official MLB and NFL sites had become.

I even tried Sirius XM, the online service, but found that the NFL was not available with the online product, only if you had one of their receivers.

Today I went back to Tunein and discovered that with the $7.95 monthly premium package, you get a very clean interface to the live audio for each game. With either the tab key or going through the JAWS key plus F7 list, you just arrow down to the game you want and hit enter.

My apologies if I just did not understand that Tunein had just what I was hoping for. I wanted to pass this along in case others did not know.
