Van Lant, Robin
 

My company does something very similar for many of it’s courses.  I’ve had a conversation with the training team to note that the slides need to be made accessible and they have done some improvements in labelling buttons for the  buttons that advance the slides and some of the interactive elements.  There are still challenges with some o the things I’m supposed to complete on a slide. 

 

Now, to help you potentially, since you have an immediate need.  You can try to use control end to work you way from the end of the slide backwards to see if any elements might be a button to advance the slide.  Also try using Insert F5 or Insert f7 and even Insert Z to turn on Quick keys to see if that makes anything more visible

 

I had one required class that was ridiculously inaccessible. I ended up having an administrative assistant sit at my desk and drive the mouse to click on the buttons.  While you probably don’t hae that option, maybe you could do a web-conference with someone who could click the buttons for you or tell you where to move your pointer to. 

 

If the above ideas don’t work, I’d advise you try AIRA or Be My Eyes, if you have a smart phone to do this. I did this for one course where I couldn’t’ find the button to advance the slide.  This may still not work well, since the button could move on each slide, but it could work.  Be My Eyes is free.  AIRA offers 5 mins per day for free and also has a agreement with Freedom Scientifi, so that might get you some free time.  If you need additional time, you might request reimbursement as an accommodation from your company, since the online class is not accessible a this time.

 

You need to let them know that the course designers need to better label the element’s on the PowerPoint.  I empathise with you. Our online learning system is awkward and it takes me longer to get things done as I bumble around. 

 

If I think of anything else, I’ll let you know.

Hi All,

 

I am using JAWS 2020, and my new university employer is requiring that I complete training modules in a couple of different areas. The on line modules were created by the e-learning branch of our institution, and they seem to use narrated power points a lot. I am sure it is possible that I am missing something, but I have tried to access these multiple times and can’t get beyond the introductory slide. The screen just seems to be blank. I used Chrome since tis is what they recommended, but I have tried others using other browsers.

 

Is there a way to move through these, or am I out of luck?

 

Thanks,

 

Cynthia

But, the jaws software download page is timing out.
They are clearly either doing maintenance on it, or it is down.
The rest of their pages seem to work fine.

Do you have an example that can be viewed without needing to be logged in to something?  Having a working (or non-working) example is the only way I can do any digging around.

Are you able to download the presentations and run them in native PowerPoint?

I have found over the years that the web-based readers are sometimes problematic.  I try to avoid using browser-based readers for MS-Office documents (regardless of the Office program) whenever possible.

All,
Thank you for the suggestions.  It was being quarantined.  It was being recognized as a PUA.  I marked it as safe and the installation was successful.

Hi Jim,
 
How about if you tell Defender to ignore the installer?  Also, do you have your system set to install apps from outside the MS Store?  Steps for both are below:
 
From: Brian Vogel
This question gets asked every once in a while, so having a dedicated topic in the archive seems prudent.  Credit to Joseph Lee for the step-by-step instructions,
which I have modified ever so slightly.
Adding & Removing Scan Exclusions in Windows Defender Security Center
 
The following steps were created using the Windows 10 Version 1803 version of Windows Defender Security Center:
 
list of 6 items
1. Open Windows Defender Security Center.
2. Navigate to Virus & threat protection pane then activate the Virus & threat protection settings link then activate the Add or remove exclusions link.
 
3. Select Add an exclusion.
4. Select File or Folder depending on what you wish to exclude.  Options for Process or a File type are also presented, but these are used relatively rarely.
 
5. Navigate to the file and/or folder where Defender is being told to skip scanning and press Enter.
6. When User Account Control appears, respond Yes to continue.
list end
 
If you wish to remove something from the exclusions list, follow steps 1 thru 3, but then select an item in the exclusions list, then click “Remove” and
respond Yes when UAC appears.
 
 
End of file app store steps are below.
 
 
To change your app download and installation options  to something other than the Microsoft Store do the following:
 
1. Windows + I, for settings and tab 1 time to, System.
 
2. Right arrow to, Apps,  press enter, and tab 1 time into the list of categories.
 
3. The first item in the list is, Apps and Features, press enter on this, and tab 1 time to the app install options combobox. 
 
4. Press, Alt + down arrow, to open the combobox.
There are four options:
1. only from the Microsoft Store.
 
2. Anywhere, but warn me if it's not from the Microsoft store.
 
3. anywhere but let me know if there is a comparable app in the Microsoft store.
 
 4. Anywhere.
 
5. Arrow up / down to the option you want and press enter.  Press, Alt + F4, to close and just to make sure your settings change takes effect, reboot your
computer.
 
 

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.

All,
The other day Mike wrote the list about a program called Stascom and I liked some of the features.  I downloaded the installer but I can’t complete the installation.  The best I can tell is Windows Defender is blocking and putting the executable in quarantine.  I am running Windows 10 version 2004 and it is fully patched as of 10/7/2020 and JAWS 2020 (the August version).  The software installs but on the first run I get a message that the process was blocked and my only option is “OK”.  If I navigate to the directory and run the program I get the same message and the executable disappears.
Any help is appreciated.  I am very new to Win 10.
Thanks,
Jim
