JAWS and regions

Terrilynne
 

Is there any way to stop JAWS from saying "region", empty region, end of
region, complimentary region, etc.? I find the message of not use, time
consuming, and on some web sites, highly annoying.

Update. I lost YouTube sound again, and once again tried Tom and Mario's
method. This time I was able to reach the mute/unmute, play and volume
controls. So to repeat their instructions, open a YouTube page, turn off the
virtual cursor by pressing control-z, then tab, or in this case, shift-tab.
I think I had to shift-tab just twice. This is in IE11 on a Win7, 64-bit
machine.

Thanks to both of you.

then tab a couple of times so that the flash interface has focus and use
up/Down Arrow to raise/lower the volume.

If you have Windows 7 and possibly higher, you can access the YouTube
volume as follows.
Go to system tray and find speaker icon and press enter on volume mixer.
Then tab to volume for YouTube and raise or lower with up or down arrows.

Several people offered suggestions, but nothing worked. Keep in mind that
I could get sound on other websites with IE11, and I could also get sound on
YouTube with Firefox. In my query, I noted that JAWS showed a volume panel
for YouTube that it didn't detect when IE11 was the browser.

I've now confirmed that the solution is to raise the volume on the
YouTube page when using IE11. Since this setting is not accessible, it
required asking someone with sight.

Re: Question about updating jaws

HAMILTON
 

Only if you have a Software Maintainance Agreement (SMA) for at least 1 more
version. When moving from 16 to 17 (or, 9 to 10), you are "upgrading", not
"updating"! I know this from being a long-term SMA purchaser. It's also
much less expensive.

Hope that helps.

Whether you would be able to run a non-demo jaws 17 depends on your
SMA status with jaws 16. You can examine this in the jaws about
window, where it says " "Software Maintenance Agreement upgrades
remaining"

Woo, you're talking about some serious cash. But I'm pretty certain the color Brother MFCs come with Control Center also. Here's the cheapest one I can find:

Subject: Re: MFC recommendations that work with PC and thus I can use Jaws

You didn't say if you needed a printer that does color or not. I have a
Brother MFC-2740DW which comes with Brother's software, called Control
Center 4. It takes just a little getting used to, but I can control nearly
everything about this printer once it's set up properly. It's fantastic. I
haven't specifically tried envelopes on it, but I don't expect I would have
any problems. Pretty much all the controls read with JAWS. I have found that
if I create custom presets for functions, the labels that I assign to them
don't read. But that's the only thing that stands out to me as iffy. This
device has a touchscreen, but I just don't use it. I can copy and scan from
the computer using Control Center 4, and JAWS handles it fine. Note: I chose
the 2740 because it can scan both sides of a document in one pass. If that's
not important to you, the other Brother models in that line all come with
Control Center, including the MFC-L2700DW, and the DCP models if you don't
need Fax capability. I've been pleased.

Several people offered suggestions, but nothing worked. Keep in mind that I could get sound on other websites with IE11, and I could also get sound on YouTube with Firefox. In my query, I noted that JAWS showed a volume panel for YouTube that it didn't detect when IE11 was the browser.

I've now confirmed that the solution is to raise the volume on the YouTube page when using IE11. Since this setting is not accessible, it required asking someone with sight.

Re: MFC recommendations that work with PC and thus I can use Jaws

Sorry! I should have mentioned that, from my previous experience, the
4-in-1 HP laser printers use very similar software, if not identical to the
HP Solutions Center software that comes with their OfficeJet printers.

You didn't say if you needed a printer that does color or not. I have a
Brother MFC-2740DW which comes with Brother's software, called Control
Center 4. It takes just a little getting used to, but I can control
nearly everything about this printer once it's set up properly. It's
fantastic. I haven't specifically tried envelopes on it, but I don't
expect I would have any problems. Pretty much all the controls read with
JAWS. I have found that if I create custom presets for functions, the
labels that I assign to them don't read. But that's the only thing that
stands out to me as iffy. This device has a touchscreen, but I just
don't use it. I can copy and scan from the computer using Control Center
4, and JAWS handles it fine. Note: I chose the 2740 because it can scan
both sides of a document in one pass. If that's not important to you,
the other Brother models in that line all come with Control Center,
including the MFC-L2700DW, and the DCP models if you don't need Fax
capability. I've been pleased.

Re: MFC recommendations that work with PC and thus I can use Jaws

HAMILTON
 

HPOfficeJet printers (all 4 functions) come with the "HP Solution Center"
software. I suspect that it works about as well as Adrian's Brother MFP,
and the JAWS interface seems fine. The one I have was put out before they
had touch screens, and I cannot tell you if the newest "OfficeJets" has this
feature; but, I am fairly sure that you would deal with it the same way.

Others on this list, I am sure, use other colour MFPs that would suit your
needs. Good luck. I look forward to your review on how well whatever you
choose works with JAWS.

Re: How to click on a hyperlink in a Word document

Adrian Spratt
 

Thanks, Russell. I am curious about Ed's post that hyperlinks work for him with your method. He wrote about automatic cross-references. In my case, the links are to online websites. I wonder if the hyperlinks respond differently depending on the method used. Again, insert-F7 "links list) and applications key followed by o made the hyperlinks in my document function, but control-left mouse did not.

Re: How to get location from "File Save" dialog

Steve Griffiths
 

Once you're in the Save As dialogue, you can press Alt-D to move focus to the location area and read it. You should then be able to press Alt-N to move back to the file name area, but that doesn't work for me in Word 2013. What I do is press Alt-T to go to the Save as type control, then Shift-Tab once to the filename area.

Paul:

Not knowing where files get stored is a function of MicroSoft's "desire" to make decisions for you, so that you don't have to "worry yourself" - I suppose! You will, I hope, forgive a little sarcasm regarding MicroSoft's intentions.

Anyway, in order to avoid this dilemna, I make a point to "NOT" use the default "save" settings. I do shift-tab my way back to where I can select the appropriate folder, on the main ROOT - but, not back to the "toolbar desktop split", in which to save files. That way, I know where everything is, or at least, how to find what I want. Unfortunately, we "CANNOT" delete "my documents", and the like. Windows won't allow it! It knows how much you want to depend on such services that they so willingly offer to its customers!

By the way, I do not even like to use Outlook's Calendar. I set up my own calendar, with a Word file for each week of the year. It's amazing how good you can get at predicting what day of the week on which a specific date next year will fall. :) :)

Hope this helps. And again, please forgive me for letting my feelings come out; but, MicroSoft is such a large target!

Subject: How to get location from "File Save" dialog

Hi all.

Is there a quick way to get JAWS to read the location (i.e., library name or filesystem path) while in a "File Save" dialog?

Some apps use the "Documents" library as the default. Other apps have their own location as the default. If you change the location when you save a file, this is "sticky" for some apps, and for other apps it is not sticky.
Even if it is sticky, if it's been a while since I saved a file in the app, I may have forgotten where I last saved the file. So the bottom line is:
Just about any time I save a file, I'd like to quickly find out where the "File Save" dialog is set to save the file, before I click the save button.

It'd be nice if I could just hit JAWSKEY + T, but unfortunately, the current location path is not displayed in the title bar of the "File Save" dialog, so this doesn't work.

The "File Save" dialog typically opens with focus in the file name field.
The only way I know to obtain the location is to SHIFT + TAB about a half dozen times until I get to the confusingly titles "toolbar desktop split button", press spacebar, then hit JAWSKEY + UP ARROW to read the current line. Note that the number of times I have to hit SHIFT + TAB to get to the "toolbar desktop split button" is variable, as the number of controls varies depending on the currently set location. So this method is time consuming and rather a PITA.

Making matters worse, many applications use custom versions of the "File Save" dialog. Each new version of MS Office, for example, has a completely different "File Save" dialog. Other older apps, such as FS OpenBook, have an old Windows 98 style of "File Save". Just as an example. How I get JAWS to read the current location varies depending on the style of "File Save"
dialog the application is using.

This is really a problem that is screaming for a built-in JAWS solution that would be universal across all applications and styles of "File Save"
dialogs.

Any ideas?

As a final note, I train blind and visually impaired people on using the computer with JAWS, and one of the most frequent problems people encounter is that they don't know where they are saving their documents and subsequently are unable to locate them.
-Paul

Re: MFC recommendations that work with PC and thus I can use Jaws

Brad Martin
 

You didn't say if you needed a printer that does color or not. I have a Brother MFC-2740DW which comes with Brother's software, called Control Center 4. It takes just a little getting used to, but I can control nearly everything about this printer once it's set up properly. It's fantastic. I haven't specifically tried envelopes on it, but I don't expect I would have any problems. Pretty much all the controls read with JAWS. I have found that if I create custom presets for functions, the labels that I assign to them don't read. But that's the only thing that stands out to me as iffy. This device has a touchscreen, but I just don't use it. I can copy and scan from the computer using Control Center 4, and JAWS handles it fine. Note: I chose the 2740 because it can scan both sides of a document in one pass. If that's not important to you, the other Brother models in that line all come with Control Center, including the MFC-L2700DW, and the DCP models if you don't need Fax capability. I've been pleased.

Can anyone recommend a laser MFC that would enable me to control everything

Re: How to get location from "File Save" dialog

I did that calendar thing for several years. Our pastor says, "if you want
to know what day something is going to happen, just ask 'Ms. Carolyn.'"
Frankly, I have welcomed this calendar with open arms.

Best from,

Carolyn

Not knowing where files get stored is a function of MicroSoft's "desire" to
make decisions for you, so that you don't have to "worry yourself" - I
suppose! You will, I hope, forgive a little sarcasm regarding MicroSoft's
intentions.

Anyway, in order to avoid this dilemna, I make a point to "NOT" use the
default "save" settings. I do shift-tab my way back to where I can select
the appropriate folder, on the main ROOT - but, not back to the "toolbar
desktop split", in which to save files. That way, I know where everything
is, or at least, how to find what I want. Unfortunately, we "CANNOT" delete
"my documents", and the like. Windows won't allow it! It knows how much
you want to depend on such services that they so willingly offer to its
customers!

By the way, I do not even like to use Outlook's Calendar. I set up my own
calendar, with a Word file for each week of the year. It's amazing how good
you can get at predicting what day of the week on which a specific date next
year will fall. :) :)

Hope this helps. And again, please forgive me for letting my feelings come
out; but, MicroSoft is such a large target!

Subject: How to get location from "File Save" dialog

Hi all.

Is there a quick way to get JAWS to read the location (i.e., library name or
filesystem path) while in a "File Save" dialog?

Some apps use the "Documents" library as the default. Other apps have their
own location as the default. If you change the location when you save a
file, this is "sticky" for some apps, and for other apps it is not sticky.
Even if it is sticky, if it's been a while since I saved a file in the app,
I may have forgotten where I last saved the file. So the bottom line is:
Just about any time I save a file, I'd like to quickly find out where the
"File Save" dialog is set to save the file, before I click the save button.

It'd be nice if I could just hit JAWSKEY + T, but unfortunately, the current
location path is not displayed in the title bar of the "File Save" dialog,
so this doesn't work.

The "File Save" dialog typically opens with focus in the file name field.
The only way I know to obtain the location is to SHIFT + TAB about a half
dozen times until I get to the confusingly titles "toolbar desktop split
button", press spacebar, then hit JAWSKEY + UP ARROW to read the current
line. Note that the number of times I have to hit SHIFT + TAB to get to the
"toolbar desktop split button" is variable, as the number of controls varies
depending on the currently set location. So this method is time consuming
and rather a PITA.

Making matters worse, many applications use custom versions of the "File
Save" dialog. Each new version of MS Office, for example, has a completely
different "File Save" dialog. Other older apps, such as FS OpenBook, have an
old Windows 98 style of "File Save". Just as an example. How I get JAWS to
read the current location varies depending on the style of "File Save"
dialog the application is using.

This is really a problem that is screaming for a built-in JAWS solution that
would be universal across all applications and styles of "File Save"
dialogs.

Any ideas?

As a final note, I train blind and visually impaired people on using the
computer with JAWS, and one of the most frequent problems people encounter
is that they don't know where they are saving their documents and
subsequently are unable to locate them.
-Paul
