Have you checked which version of Edge you have? Seems like everybody else wh o has tried this given the bank address you provided has no problem finding the submit button.
In any case, have you tried to simply press enter after entering your password, don't exit forms mode, just put in your user Id, tab and put in your password and then press enter.
In many cases this will submit the information although not in all.

  2. Calc:  Spreadsheet
  3. Impress:  Presentations (think PowerPoint)
  4. Base:  Database Manager (think MS-Access)

moderated Re: Asking a edge with jaws question.

 

The first thing I heard Jaws saying when I opened the link for the bank was this:

Alert!
Press Alt+1 for screen-reader mode. Stop this message with Alt+0.

I recently came across another website where I got this message which, by the way, repeats every few seconds. There is also a link for an accessibility statement which is very detailed and comprehensive.

As for the Submit button I can also confirm it's there for me using Edge, I can tab to it or hear/navigate to it using tab or the button quick nav key. Interestingly enough, when you activate this so-called accessible mode, the Login link which is a link on the regular website becomes a button you can find with the button quick nav key, but in this mode pressing enter or spacebar on it did nothing, e.g. I did not get any user name or password field and I even tried clicking on it with the left mouse button with no effect. After going out of screenreader mode with Alt + 0 login became a link again and pressing enter on it made the user Id and password fields show ut. Below is Jaws speech history:I could

LOGIN ID Edit
test
Type in text.
PASSWORD password edit 
••••••••
Type in text.
Submit Button

Link Forgot Password? Link Enroll Now

When I press Alt + 1, Jaws says the following:
Screen-reader mode is on, alt+0 to cancel

Accessibility Help & Statement - that is a link where you can read their accessibility information and an email is given for questions.

Two things.

I’m pasting the link to the help documentation online so you can read through its offerings.

 

Also, it is very sluggish with both Jaws and NVDA.  There is a dealy after each character when you arrow over it or when you type.

If I had to depend on this for all my Office type needs, I think this would get frustrating.

 

Are there scripts or settings that can be changed to help this?

Here is the help link:

Hi. OpenOffice and LibreOffice are very similar and they may appear identical on the surface, especially for users of screen readers. However, OpenOffice has a very slow development cycle. LibreOffice receives many more updates and feature additions and should offer even better compatibility with more complex Office files. Therefore, I highly recommend LibreOffice over OpenOffice.

Hi, Ann,

This was such a great question. I know someone who needs a different wordprocessor until they can get MS Word again.

Someone suggested Google Docs. A month or two ago, I would not have recommended it. However, this was because I never had any luck with it. I was wondering, what if someone is not always near a WI-FI connection, will Google Docs still work, or would another program work better? I'm just curious.

moderated LibreOffice question

Richard Turner
 

At David’s recommendation, I install LibreOffice as an alternative when I might need a different program than the Microsoft Office.

 

Jaws seems rather sluggish after opening a word document.

I checked the Jaws scripts and got this:

IBM Lotus Symphony settings are used in the soffice.bin application.
The configuration name is Symphony.
The current Speech and Sounds Scheme is Classic.

 

Are there any scripts specifically for LibreOffice?

My 2 cents would be to call the Microsoft Accessibility desk.  After all it’s a Microsoft product and who knows they may know of some weird settings or something that will make it work.  Because after all on Windows 803 after trying all sorts of things to fix my issues that popped up when I upgraded I called them and the tier 3 folks solved the issue and it was the strangest thing.  They had me lock my screen in landscape mode and that corrected the issues of my keyboard echoing repeating incorrect things when it was turned on.

 

Anyways, just a thought. Good luck and report back as to what the fix is

 

Thanks and have a good day everyone

Hi. Have two issues using hyper v with narrator.

When creating a vm, and then installing windows server 2019. Have not tried it with 2016. Narrator does not turn on, just hear caps lock on and off. And nvda does not turn on either. Also tried the audio end point builder and audio srv inside a vm, in windows server. Does not come on. Wish there was a way for narrator to detect if the client talk back to the server. Did try vm ware player, able to use the windows 10 talking installer. Did read the install screens for windows server 2019 essentials. But when it rebooted, no speech, and just the vm ware window. So no good. And virtual box kept chrashing when I tried to use it. So hyper v is built into windows 10 pro which I have. So for the most part it is accessible with jaws, nvda. So, any one got any scripts, work arounds, or how they get around it. Having to wait for sighted people to remote in to my machine, and then having to do this. Would like to set it up without sighted help. Microsoft has a gap in this space. Did give feedback on the user voice and also feeback hub if Microsoft reads my feedback. Unless you can direct me where I could contact the narrator accessibility team and also the windows server accessibility. Frustrated. Got 3 weeks to do two last practical assignments. And stressing out. Then every oen goes on vacation for a few weeks. Got till January  9 to complete my current course.

If any one has had issues, being totally blind, how did they get speech, under hyper v virtual machine. Don’t have access to a dedicated server. Remote connection manager, worked some times and connected, then would not do that. So just used the hyper v connection I had. And then when getting out of one of my vms, if I do a shutdown, does not go back to the host, totally chrashes my speech. If I disconnect, still get speech which is weird.

Any ideas.

In view of the problem someone  experienced, as an experiment  I  went onto another machine without Jarte.

I too found the enable screenreader copied to clipboard instruction did not work.

However the following did.

  1. Install Jarte
  2. Close Jaws and start NVDA
  3. Start Jarte, Jarte will announce screen reader mode.
  4. Close NVDA and start Jaws. Restart Jarte and it sticks in screenreader mode for Jaws  also now.
  5. .Now finally  with Jarte in focus use Jaws F2 and find settings centre for Jarte and create the profile. Type edit in the search box and then tab down to uncheck enhanced edit mode.
  6. The only other thing I  think is to install the office Add in pack to improve Jarte compliance with Office Documents.

 

This all seems to work nicely to get a free Jaws accessible Word Processor for now.

Hi. If you're referring to the Office Compatibility Pack you can read more about it and download it from this link. The Jarte documentation indicates that this pack was automatically installed for users of Office 2007 or later. However, Microsoft must have at some point decided that this addon was no longer needed as I have Office 365 installed and I was not able to open a file in Jarte containing a .docx extension.

In view of the problem someone  experienced, as an experiment  I  went onto another machine without Jarte.

I too found the enable screenreader copied to clipboard instruction did not work.

However the following did.

  1. Install Jarte
  2. Close Jaws and start NVDA
  3. Start Jarte, Jarte will announce screen reader mode.
  4. Close NVDA and start Jaws. Restart Jarte and it sticks in screenreader mode for Jaws  also now.

Thank you, David.

I have one more question for you. How do I install it from downloads?

This is the one I use which seems to work with Jarte though I have not checked it is the latest.

I have never used Google Docs precisely because of this problem but apparently checking on Google last week there are instructions for using Google docs offline. As far as I can see though this is certainly not the default and ironically you need to be online to make this setting change. So I imagine that if, for example, your Wi-Fi suddenly goes down you may indeed be locked out of all your documents.

Someone  who actually uses Google Docs may be able to comment definitely  on this though.

Hi, Ann,

This was such a great question. I know someone who needs a different wordprocessor until they can get MS Word again.

Someone suggested Google Docs. A month or two ago, I would not have recommended it. However, this was because I never had any luck with it. I was wondering, what if someone is not always near a WI-FI connection, will Google Docs still work, or would another program work better? I'm just curious.

 

Sincerely,

Jasmine

                Hi everyone,

 

With all the latest talk about Jarte, and how it may be going away eventually due to lack of development, I was wondering what other free word processors work well with Jaws? How about Open Office or Libre Office?

 

Any other suggestions?

Heya folks,

 

Can anyone help me with the best way to get round Tapin radio’s prefernces screen with Jaws? It just reads constantly many options at once and has been like this for ages.

 

Any help will be appreciated.

 

Cheers,
