Hi all,

 

I find it annoying when on Google Chrome, as a enter some text in the search edit field, it starts predicting what I want to search for. How can I turn that feature off?

For what it is worth.

Using NVDA is much easier.

Control+t is suppose to toggle the text to speech reading.

Spacebar is supposed to start and stop playback.

With Jaws, it appears that you have to use control+t to also start and stop playback.

If you have Kindle on your iPhone, you can use regular VoiceOver gestures to read the book.

Hi Takis,

 

Please excuse my ignorance, but once I get to the book title and its chapters, how can I read the book? Should I read it with JAWS, or are they audiobooks? I simply don’t know how to use it.

Hi Gezim/all,

If installed, then just go to your download link and press it for the book to download. Then find the kindle icon on your desktop or whatever and press it. You should ideally land on your title, which you can press on. Tabbing once, you will get to the table of contents from where you can select the part, chapter you need. Once you get more books, these will appear and I have found that right-arrowing is more handy then down-arrowing if you have many book, as I do have.

                                                            Hope this helps,

If you have a smart phone, the Kindle app works fine with either Talkback on Android, or VoiceOver on an iPhone.

Or, search for Accessible Kindle for PC, and install it.

You will need to login with your Amazon account, or create one.

Sighted assistance is helpful for that login screen, as it does not read right with JAWS.

I think you may have found a bug.
Under Number and Date processing in Jaws settings center, there is a checkbox for Say Dollar.  If checked, it is supposed to do what you want.
But for me, checked or unchecked it says the same thing.
The text after  that checkbox is:
When selected, numbers preceded by a dollar sign are read using the dollars and cents format. For example, $9.95 is read as nine dollars and ninety five cents. To read monetary values less than a dollar, a zero is required to represent dollars. For example, $0.02 is read as two cents.

Re: Zoom and microphone issue

 

Presuming Windows 10, Settings, Privacy, Microphone Pane is where you can toggle global access to the microphone on/off and then if turned on, then further control which apps can or cannot access the microphone.

As to checking Microphone record levels, I find it easiest to go to Settings, Time & Language, Speech pane then activating the Get Started button under the Microphone, set up for speech recognition section.

Can any other apps see your microphone? Skype, maybe or anything?

Hi,

Have you tried the graphics labeler. If it is a graphic.

Hello Milton,

 

Sure, I am glad for any assistance.  The web site is adult in nature, so can you email me at ttford@... and I will give that to you.  I am sensitive to those who may be offended, and thus did not include the site address.

If the button is totally invisible I don’t think anybody can mark it. The only option here is to tell the owner of the site about the problem and hope they are open towards making it accessible again. I am not a Jaws scripter, but it might be possible to achieve this also with a script.

Subject: How to mark a play button that JAWS is not picking up?

 

Hello All,

 

One of my favorite video streaming sites suddenly changed a few months ago.  Before the sudden change, videos would start automatically, then suddenly they would not.  I had Microsoft’s nice accessibility office remote in to my computer.  The guy was able to immediately spot and click the play button, but I could not figure out where the button was, so I know the cause, but not how to solve it.

 

Is there a way for Microsoft’s remote session person to label the button so JAWS will let me work that button?  Or, is this something that can be done only by a sighted person sitting at my computer?  In either case, how would they mark/label the button?

No, not picky, personal preference.  I see why someone would prefer that setting the way you have it.

Thanks Mike,

I Wasn’t too concerned about the dates since by having it set to no translation, if it is written as numbers, I hear it as numbers, if it is written with the Month as a word, I hear it that way.

Set to some, you never know if it is written with words or just numbers.

 

Picky I know, but there you have it.

 

Thanks for all your help,

The number processing selection was going to be my next question.  1 Thing I noticed was your numeric date translation setting, it's set to, no translation.  Have you tried setting this to, some translation?  Dates read much better with the, some translation, setting, at least with Eloquence.

I didn't say anything about a, Say All, setting.  But, now that you mention it my version works correctly using the Say All keystroke.  The difference might be is I'm running Eloquence with Reed as my voice selection.  I don't use any other voices or synthesizers, so I can't comment on how they react.

Ron,
I think you may have found a bug.
Under Number and Date processing in Jaws settings center, there is a checkbox for Say Dollar.  If checked, it is supposed to do what you want.
But for me, checked or unchecked it says the same thing.
The text after  that checkbox is:
When selected, numbers preceded by a dollar sign are read using the dollars and cents format. For example, $9.95 is read as nine dollars and ninety five cents. To read monetary values less than a dollar, a zero is required to represent dollars. For example, $0.02 is read as two cents.

Noticed the following when speaking dollar signs.
For some weird reason it's saying dollar and the figures, instead of saying the figures then the word dollars.
For example, for $2.00 it will say dollar two instead of two dollars.
How can we fix this?
