JAWS, Google Docs and Google Chrome

Patricia
 

Hi all:

Is anyone using JAWS with Google Docs or Chrome? To this point I have
found them (Google Docs especially), to be painfully inaccessible with
JAWS. From what I've read you either have to disable all of JAWS
features that allow it to work on the internet, or you need to use
Google's own screen reader, which naturally they prefer. Chrome is
usable, but I haven't found it as nice to use as say Internet Explorer
or Firefox, and even Freedom Scientific doesn't seem to list Chrome in
their popular applications nor have I heard any talk about it in any
FSCasts either in demonstrations of other programs or just in general.

Best,

Patricia

Okay folks. Now we're straying away from anything remotely to do with JAWS.
Might want to switch to discussing this one in private.

Dave:

This is a Dell Lattitude D600, not a D620.

And, the buttons are as you describe with one exception:

On the right is the power button, then, moving to the left, is the mute
button, and finally to the left of that is one longer button which feels
like a rocker switch. You press it to the right to increase volume, and to
the left to decrease the volume. It's this control I can't get to work.

Tom,

What you're calling a rocker switch does not exist on a Latitude D620.
That
might be the Infrared detector. The up/down volume and mute buttons are
located as follows:

Start with the power button. Next one to the left is the mute toggle. Then
the next two buttons left of mute are the down/up volume buttons. Further
left of those two round buttons is what I think is the IR detector.

Thanks, Dave.

I'd really like to get the rocker sswitch to work if possible, since it
allows for a very quick volume adjustment when needed.

Still, though, I appreciate your additional suggested work-around.

Tom,

You may also be able to control the volume using Fn + F3 and Fn+F4. I
agree
that the rocker switch/buttons are not the easiest to deal with, but they
should give you the full range min/max.

Hi, all.

Well, it turns out that our friend Dave Carlson was right.

Disabling the touchpad mouse via the bios on my Dell Lattitude D600
laptop
worked.

I want to sincerely thank everyone on the list for tolerating this
thread,
and I want to especially thank James for allowing the thread to proceed
to
its conclusion.

I do have one more dilemma I'm wrestling with, so any suggestions would
be
appreciated.

Specifically, I am unable to control the volume of the laptop speakers
via
the little rocker switch that is right below the monitor and above the
main
keyboard.

I can control the volume by using the control key plus page up or page
down,
but it's a bit clumsy.

If anyone has any suggestions for re-activating the main laptop volume
control, I'd appreciate them.

On the positive side, Jaws installed very easily onto the laptop, and
responds very well to various key commands, so I am making progress.

Thanks again, everyone, and Happy New Year!

Re: Braille Window 80 and JFW

Dave Durber
 

Hello Frank:

I am using a BrailleWindow 40 character braille display with JAWS 14 and I have been using it with all the versions of JAWS since 5.0 with no problems.

The Biostar motherboard I have in my computer, did not come with physical serial or parallel connectors. I had to get an expantion plate, with a serial and parallel port with connectors that connected to headers on the motherboard.

I have not tried connecting the Braille Window display, using a USB to serial connector or, USB to parallel connector. Maybe, someone else has done that and can suggest which brand to use.

HTH

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Re: Touchpad Disable issue solved!

Ann Byrne
 

Try the fn key with a function key. Often the Dell *mute key is fn_f7, volume down is fn-f8, and volume up is fn-f9. Or maybe *mute is fn-f8, down is fn-f9, and up is fn-f10.

Be sure you remember what you did, in case you need to undo it.

Good luck!

Re: Braille Window 80 and JFW

Kimber Gardner
 

You shouldn't have any problem as long as the braille window is in the
list of braille displays. I could be wrong but I think all you need to
do is check it in the list and identify what type of connection
(serial or parallel) you're using.

I had one of these displays and would be glad to help if you have questions.

Re: Touchpad Disable issue solved!

Dave...
 

Tom,

You may also be able to control the volume using Fn + F3 and Fn+F4. I agree
that the rocker switch/buttons are not the easiest to deal with, but they
should give you the full range min/max.

Subject: Touchpad Disable issue solved!


Hi, all.

Well, it turns out that our friend Dave Carlson was right.

Disabling the touchpad mouse via the bios on my Dell Lattitude D600 laptop
worked.

I want to sincerely thank everyone on the list for tolerating this thread,
and I want to especially thank James for allowing the thread to proceed to
its conclusion.

I do have one more dilemma I'm wrestling with, so any suggestions would be
appreciated.

Specifically, I am unable to control the volume of the laptop speakers via
the little rocker switch that is right below the monitor and above the main
keyboard.

I can control the volume by using the control key plus page up or page down,
but it's a bit clumsy.

If anyone has any suggestions for re-activating the main laptop volume
control, I'd appreciate them.

On the positive side, Jaws installed very easily onto the laptop, and
responds very well to various key commands, so I am making progress.

Thanks again, everyone, and Happy New Year!

have you tried getting to the volume control from the system tray? That is the way I usually do it.

Re: Jaws and Itunes Purchase history

Have you activated the sidebar. I think its control S. It should say
something like view sidebar. It should then show up. I am no pro but
recently had to do it myself but I hope that helps.

been able to use the Jaws cursor to click on anything. It's as if the Jaws
cursor is stuck. It just says "blank" whenever I use any of the arrow keys.
I've tried maximizing the window, but still nothing. Can someone tell me
what's wrong and how to fix this. Why are the navigation links for Music,
Movie, TV Shows ETC not showing everytime I go into my purchase history and
hidden purchases?

Tom,

Yes, it was the only way to do it with my Dell Latitude D630.

Thanks, Dave.

My wife is sighted, so I'll get her to help with this.

It seems like it may be the only way to solve the problem.

Tom,

The BIOS is accessed by pressing either F2 or F8 during the initial bootup
when the Windows logo first appears. A sighted person is going to have to
do
this.

Dave:

Can you tell me how to go to the bios with this particular computer?

I have several external mice that sighted people can use if needed, so
turning the touchpad mouse completely off would probably be the best
thing.

Tom,

"Some people have told me that disabling the touchpad mouse may have to
be
done by getting into the computer's bios."

That is absolutely correct for the Dell Latitude D-series. I told you
that
and I wasn't kidding.

You can turn off either the touchpad or the touchstick, but not both via
the
control panel. That was also true of my Dell D-series on XP.

Perhaps you just have a different touchpad driver and cannot do that with
your operating system.

Since you had sighted help, why not have them go to the BIOS and shut off
the mouse entirely?

You can always connect a USB mouse later and that will still work.

Hi, again, folks.

I am sorry to have to bug everyone about this again, but I still have not
been successful with regard to disabling the touchpad mouse on the Dell
Lattitude D600 laptop I just acquired.

I even got sighted assistance to help with the problem.

We can find no way to toggle it on or off in the control panel.

There is no way to toggle it on or off via the FN key and any of the
computer's function buttons.

The system tray didn't seem to give us any clues either.

Some people have told me that disabling the touchpad mouse may have to be
done by getting into the computer's bios.

We tried calling Dell Technical
Support, and were told that they could help us disable the touchpad
mouse,
at a mere cost of $149!

Needless to say, we turned down that offer! (grin)

Does anyone have any more suggestions?

Or, does anyone know of a way to e-mail Dell tech support?

I have looked on the Dell web site, but the means for doing that don't
seem
readily accessible.
