Jaws should say what you are on.

You should be able to tab to it or use the left or right arrows, but if you can tab to it, that will be the best way to know you are on the right item.

If it doesn’t say anything, then you are stuck.

How do I ensure that I’m on the item I wish to click?

 

I have to click the “restore options” button in Backblaze.

Position the mouse pointer on the item you wish clicked, hold down the CTRL key and press the JAWS Left Mouse Button.

You may be able to get the same result simply by pressing the application key.

Technically if you need to exactly replicate the keystroke I think you need to invoke the Jaws cursor and route jaws to the pc  cursor – insert plus numpad minus in desktop layout and then hold down the control key and press  numpad slash  once to invoke a   virtual mouse click.

I would try bringing up the context menu with the application key first though as I find this unpredictable in results.

I wonder if this is one of those annoying pull down menus, that after tabbing to it and hitting space bar or enter, a dialog of sorts opens either above or below that spot on the screen.

I've not dealt with that site, but I have run across some where the information showed up above rather than below.

Hi group,

 

I’m using Jaws 2020 and I am trying to activate a button on a web site. Jaws reads the button as “unlabeled zero button collapsed.) I have tried the PC, Jaws and Touch cursor and I am unable to activate it. It comes up in the button list under Jaws, but selecting it from that list just closes the list.

This is on the Constant Contact site, which is password protected. But if anyone has negotiated the site with Jaws or has general suggestions on how to click on this button I would really appreciate it. As an aside, I couldn’t click on it with NVDA or Narrator either, if that helps.

This can be annoying Sometimes

  1. Turning virtual cursor off – jawskey plus Z and then tabbing to the element and pressing space or enter will work.
  2. Switching browsers. Try the same page in Internet Explorer of a Chrome based browser if using Firefox or vice versa.

moderated Problems with the clipboard in jaws 19

Rahul Bajaj
 

Hi, all,

I extensively use the insert+windows+c command to append text to the clipboard. I have two questions about this functionality offered by JAWS:
1. I sometimes find that text which I append to the clipboard actually does not get appended. At first, I thought I was imagining this, but now it has happened enough times that I know the problem is for real. It happened twice today. I appended multiple article titles to the clipboard. But only one showed up when I pasted the clipboard text.
2. Often, the same content gets added to the clipboard several times. So when I paste the content, the same chunk of text gets pasted multiple times. A quick fix has been to use insert+space+c before pasting. This helps me determine what the clipboard precisely contains. Any ideas?

On the Macintosh side, Outlook now has a feature that replies to a message in the same window. I wonder if perhaps the Drafts folder has a preview pane, and if both the preview pane and the editing window are making changes to the draft. There is a location in the view settings to disable Preview 
alt followed by v followed by v will get you into the view options, but I believe some of the more interesting settings for us are under the options button available when you press alt-O after opening up the View settings.

Hi,
Years ago there was a product called a Plustek Opticbook 3600 book edge scanner. It’s claim to fame was a scanner bed which extended all the way to its front edge, thus allowing you to place the book’s binding right on the edge and lay pages completely flat. You get none of the typical “shadowing” associated with lying a book face-down and trying to get the very inside edges of the pages near the binding to scan accurately. It was a great concept.

Unfortunately I don’t think that product is still around.

The one I'm looking for is specially for scanning books, and has only 3 buttons: black/white, color, and "Go."

I would appreciate any information anyone can share. Many thanks.

This looks like the one you were looking for. Spelled slightly differently in that OpticBook is written as one word and has a c rather than a k in the Optic part of the name.
There is another source I found below this one. I have no personal knowledge of either one of these.

This one is another I found searching for the Reading Edge which was the state of the art edge scanner over 30 years ago.
