I have not seen a response to your inquiry.
If you are focused on a link or button, press insert+control+tab to rename
an element.



I hope this does what you want it to.

Hello everyone:

The other day, I accessed a web site, which on the whole, was very
accessible.

Unfortunately, there were 2 problems. the first, was the link, which took
you to the shopping basket page. This link had no text lable, to tell a user
of a screen reader the purpose of the link. The link is a standard HTML
coded link.

the second is a standard HTML button, which also does not have a text label.
This button is for removing an item from the shopping basket.

My question is, is there a way within JAWS, where you can attach labels to
specific links and buttons on an individual web site?

The link and button on this web site are not graphics

Thanks in anticipation.

Hello Mike:
 
I used the suggestion you provided from Carlos, on the web site to which I referred.
 
I created a text label for the link which opens the shopping basket page, and I also created a label for the button, which deletes an item from the shopping basket. Both these now speak the 2 elements.
 
However, there is a button on the home page which activates the search function. JAWS allowed me to create a label for the button. However, when I entered text for an item in the Search edit field, and tabbed to the Search button to activate the search, the text label I created for the button, was not spoken by JAWS. The button to start the search, appears to be an HTML defined button. so, it is a mystery, why JAWS will not speak the label I created for it.

Hi Dave,
 
Here are 2 sets of steps:
 
From: Carlos
Place focus on the link or button to which you want to assign a label, press Insert+F2, and select
"Custom Label" from the list.
This has been in JAWS going back at least several versions.  These are different features for doing similar things.  The "Prompt Creator" and "Graphics
Labeler" are used for labeling controls and graphics in applications.  The "Custom Label" option is used for labeling HTML elements like buttons and links
on webpages.
Carlos
 
From: Mauricio Molina
When on the Internet, once you locate a button without a label, press JAWS / Insert Key, Control, + Tab.  You will then be asked to type in a label.

There are several ways, but so you can see what other settings are available here's 1 way of getting to the Default Apps.

1. Press, Windows key + I, then tab 1 time to your categories.

2. Navigate with right arrow key to, Apps, and press enter.

3. Tab 1 time into your list of categories and down arrow to Default apps and press enter.  Now you can tab through your default app options.

In all cases, whatever you have chosen as the default e-mail app will open for a mailto: link, which is precisely what the Reply to Sender link in Groups.io messages are, with the address of the mailto: being that of the individual who wrote the message to the group.

I just changed my default e-mail to Outlook, and used the “reply” link at the bottom of this message to reply to the sender, who, in this case was you.

 

Even though Jaws initially said that the original sender’s e-mail address was unavailable, your address came up in my “to” field.

 

So, it looks like the reply to sender link now works, at least on this list.

 

I’m sending this note to the entire list, though, to let everyone know of my progress.

I think this suggestion might have appeared on the JFW Users list, but someone told me of another way to get the sender’s e-mail address.

 

When in an open message, press alt 1 twice.  This takes the information in the From field, including the sender’s e-mail address,  and copies it onto the clip board.

 

Then, when in your e-mail reply, you can paste the sender’s address  into the “to” field, and go from there.

 

It’s kind of round-about, but it does work.

 

Also, I do not have Edge set as my default internet browser.  Currently, it is Firefox, but I am leaning more and more to switching over to Google Chrome.

 

I wonder what you use as your main internet browser?

Hi, Tom. Neither of the two ways you mentioned for retrieving the sender's email address is always effective. What I do is to start Outlook, (this is what I use), open the message in question, and press ALT plus F, followed by the letters i, then V. After doing this, you can TAB over to where it mentions headers. The sender's email address is there, but you must arrow up and down through the information, or in some cases, tab through the information. You will know the correct line, because it will say the word "from" at the beginning of the line. The word from will not have the quotes around it. After the word from will be the person's email account name in quotes, followed by their email address enclosed in less than and greater than brackets.

 

The other problem you are having is that you don't have Outlook set to use your default Internet browser, so your links are opening up in Edge. Since I'm not using Office 365, I cannot tell you exactly where to go within Outlook to set it to use your default browser.

 

The other thing I may suggest is to make sure that Edge is not currently your default Internet Browser.

Hello, everyone.

 

I am on a number of groups.io e-mail lists, and I used to be able to retrieve the original sender’s e-mail address from a message, if I wanted to respond just to that individual.

 

I used to be able to do this in two ways:

 

1.  I could do an insert shift R, but that no longer works.  I now consistently get a message that says “cannot retrieve  sender’s address”.

 

Or

 

2.  On most groups.io e-mail lists, there is a link for “reply to sender”.  However, when I access this link, I get put into some sort of a Microsoft Edge mail app that I cannot figure out how to navigate.

 

I’m using Windows 10 with Office 365 Outlook e-mail here, with the latest build of Jaws 2020.

 

Thanks for any help.

Thanks for suggestions. A couple more thoughts. I heard from Zoom accessibility, and I agree with their assessment (so far) that this is not a screen reader issue, nor is it a dialogue box initiated by Zoom. It is a system-generated message that would probably arise with any video/audio conferencing application. Also, I actually don't hear any feedback - the message about the feedback just pops up. I did some texting last night, and found that I could reproduce the problem when I talked loudly.

Thanks for suggestions. A couple more thoughts. I heard from Zoom accessibility, and I agree with their assessment (so far) that this is not a screen reader issue, nor is it a dialogue box initiated by Zoom. It is a system-generated message that would probably arise with any video/audio conferencing application. Also, I actually don't hear any feedback - the message about the feedback just pops up. I did some texting last night, and found that I could reproduce the problem when I talked loudly.

moderated Intro and a question

Hi. I'm coming back to jaws after a long time away. I enjoy reading,
but can't figure out if, or how to read my kindle books using jaws. Is
this possible and how would I do that? I am trying the kindle cloud
reader at read.amazon.com, and can start reading books, but cannot
navigate them. I'm using jaws 20 with windows 10 and chrome as my
browser. Thanks for any help, I'm glad I found this list.,.

tom, I only see title reading detection that can be cycled.
Here's what I get when I search for title after pressing insert+v:

No, when you go to quick settings, under that title reading. You can choose between column title, row title, both, or none. The space bar will cycle between them.

this works, and BTW the exact verbage is title reading detection, but there might be a situation where I apply the command for rows when I should have used the command for columns.
is there a keystroke that neutralizes the one I mistakenly applied, leaving the other one active? or do I just have to delete the JSI file that Ann mentioned and start again?

If you have defined the title reading for row and or columns, and do not want them to read anymore. All you have to do is open the file. Hit insert V for the quick settings. Type in title, and arrow down until you hear title reading, and space until it says none.

I hope this helps,
Thom

Using these keystrokes creates a .jsi file, which you will need to delete in order to remove the command.

Go to the JAWS screen.
Utilities
explore utilities folder.
Explore my settings.
Personalized settings.
the excel.jsi file will be there.
Wipe it out.

If that doesn't work, holler and I will look harder.At 06:09 PM 4/17/2020, you wrote:
I've used Alt+Control+JAWSKey+R which defines the selected columns as those containing row titles for the current region.
I've also used Alt+Control+JAWSKey+C which defines the selected rows as those containing column titles for the current region.

what do I have to do if I do not need or want the effect anymore?

And while it is a splendid workaround, it's also entirely unnecessary if you set your default e-mail program to the one of your choosing, not leave it at whatever it happens to be set to now.
