Re: [Bulk] IE 9 question

Dave...
 

It doesn't say anything, you say? I guess you meant it doesn't say "64 bit".

Aside from the grammar that you acknowledge, I suspect they are both one and
the same. Just press Alt+Enter on each one and you'll see the underlying
command to launch. I suspect each are the same.

If they are, then delete whichever one offends you.

On my Windows 7 home premium machine, somehow, I have 2 launch icons for

One says 64-bit and the other one, it doesn't say nothing.

Is there 2 different ones?
Would it be better for one to use with JAWS?

Sorry if that is too dumb a question.

Re: IE 9 question

Chris Smart <csmart8@...>
 

as far as I know, one is 32-bit, the one that just says "internet explorer" on your system.

Re: IE 9 question

ohio1803@...
 

Well, sorry. I was not precise.
The one shortcut icon, It says Internet Explorer.
And the other one, it further says, Internet Explorer (64-bit).

I imagined at first that I may have gotten the two icons when I upgraded to version nine, which was several months ago.

But actually when you open the program via either startup icon, you are opening version 9 of the application.

Thanks.

Re: [Bulk] labs.google

ohio1803@...
 

I went to this link. And the top of the page, it says Google Labs was being phased out.
I don't really know what the Labs thing was even. But I was curious and went and looked. There was a ton of other things on the page that Google had and I did not check them out.

So if you would not mind, what is or was Google Labs?
I assume it is not pictures of dogs. <g>

How about trying the completely accessible Google Labs without the

headings, etc.:

http://www.googlelabs.com/

I find google's /accessible versions of its search sites often limiting. For
example, on the regular Google search pages, the /accessible version doesn't
list the number of total hits.

do a quick google search for something like google labs going away.

You type in your search, press enter and when the list of results come up
get this custom google search thing. What I mean is when I try to read the

Re: Update for Windows Live Essentials

ohio1803@...
 

I also did the update this morning.
So far I have not seen any issues relating to JAWS.
My About says I now have Windows Live Mail version 2011 (Build 15.4.3538.0513)

The only thing that happened to me was that the update changed the Start Menu where programs were listed. It took me awhile to find Windows Live Mail. But it was there.

My update took about 15 minutes and a Restart was required.

I suppose there must be a web page that lists what all was in the update.
If someone has already taken the time to find it, and would post the link, I thank him or her in advance!

Thanks.

Re: [Bulk] JAWS Key/Insert + F11 and F12 Not speaking

Dave...
 

Make sure that your system tray is enabled. I don't have Win 7 yet, but in
XP you can open properties of the taskbar by using Alt+Enter when on it.

The items in that dialog called "Notification Area" pertain to the system
tray. Also in that dialog you can see if the taskbar is positioned
appropriately.

Again this is XP; perhaps similar in Win 7.

Subject: Method to the FS Madness

Recently, there was a thread on this list discussing use of control plus
JAWS key (insert) plus g.
It seems that the command performs two functions. This seemed to me like
a blatant inconsistency. Well, there is still an inconsistency, but I
accidentally discovered a method to Freedom Scientific's madness.
Within Internet Explorer, and presumably FireFox as well, so-called
quick keys permit one to jump to various elements, both forward and
backward. Those keys are h for header, b for button, r for radio button,
g for graphic, I for item in a list, t for table, and so on. There are a
bunch of them. Add the shift key to any of the foregoing to jump
backwards.
The JAWS help system says that any of these quick keys can be converted
into a command to display a list of the selected element just by using
control plus JAWS key (insert) with the letter.
So, control plus insert plus t will produce a list of tables.
But wait a minute!
Control plus insert plus b is the command for Braille options. Control
plus insert plus g is the graphics labeler. Aren't there bound to be
inconsistencies?
So, I ran a little test.
To my surprise, when I pressed control plus insert plus b, even within
Internet Explorer, I got Braille options.
Now, some of you doubtless think I'm about as dense as a Mahogany desk,
but it didn't occur to me immediately what the problem was. Initially, I
just thought FS was flakey. Well, that may be true, but not because of
pure inconsistency with these commands. After trying control plus insert
plus b, I tried control plus insert plus g. Guess what? The graphics
labeler started up.
Then the dawn of understanding illuminated my darkened mind. I had
automatic forms mode turned on, and my cursor was sitting in an edit
field.
When I moved out of the edit box and the virtual cursor took over,
control plus insert plus g produced, as expected, a list of graphics.
Control plus insert plus b produced a list of buttons.
So, even within Internet Explorer, the keystrokes can produce completely
different results, depending upon whether or not the virtual cursor is
active. If the virtual cursor is on, insert plus control plus a quick
key will produce a list of the elements related to the quick key. If,
however, forms mode is on, whether triggered automatically or manually
invoked, these keystrokes will produce the results one would expect
outside the Internet.
So, when one drills down far enough, there is, indeed, a method to
Freedom Scientific's madness.
Of course, that this whole thing troubled me so much probably gives you
cause to think I'm mad too, but for those who are curious (or as mad as
I am), this sort of makes sense.

Re: Method to the FS Madness

Dave...
 

Ed,

Good detective work, and yes it makes sense how these keystrokes could
change based on the state of virtual cursor. Now the question still remains:

If I was on the web page and in virtual mode and there was a graphic I
wanted to auto-label (sorry for the run-on) -- how would I do it?

I guess I'd have to route JAWS to the virtual cursor first, and then invoke
the auto-graphic label function.

I think the snakes of Freedom Medusa's hair are becoming more entangled, as
FS tries to accommodate every situation to a keystroke. There are an
infinite number of elements one could wish to have controlled by a
keystroke, but a finite number of keystrokes possible with only 8 fingers
and two thumbs. And only a few modifier keys on a standard keyboard.

From my perspective, and from the perspective of still being royally ticked
with FS's debacle with Excel, I would greatly appreciate them not taking
away key combinations in the interest of creating new ones.

FS -- are you reading? Get some hair-straightener and design consistent
code.

Of course, that this whole thing troubled me so much probably gives you cause to think I'm mad too, but for those who are curious (or as mad as I am), this sort of makes sense.

Re: Update for Windows Live Essentials

Gezim Rexha
 

Hello David,

Finally, I made the decision and installed the updates, and it is working fine with JAWS. Actually, I can't see any difference. My current Windows Live Mail version is:
Version 2011 (Build 15.4.3538.0513)

With best wishes,
Gezim

Hello there;

Well, yes the latest version of windows live essentials does work with jaws
12, however, just be aware, the latest version will incorporate the ribbon,
so you'll need to learn how to navigate the menus,
Other then that? It's fine.

Hi all,

My computer is telling me that an update for Windows Live essentials is
available. Before deciding to install it, I wanted to ask if anybody of you
has tried it to make sure that it works with JAWS.

Re: [Bulk] jaws not reading next msg after ctrl-d delete

Londa Peterson <lpeterson@...>
 

I'm running the latest version of JAWS, Office 2007 and Windows XP
Professional on my computer at work. It seems to work fine since I did the
clean reinstall. It's slow at times, but my computer is also 9 years old.
I may be getting a new one soon with the same configuration listed above.
I'll let people know how it is.

These last two releases just don't play well with 2007. I'd love to
hear from anybody off list who runs this version of Office on 11 or
higher with XP. I believe the problems you guys are talking about are
with later OS's, but an FS developer told me the company had little

Michael,

You may benefit by updating to 12.0.1669. However go to
http://www.freedomscientific.com and check the "What's new" and
"Enhancements and Fixes" files to make sure that WLM has been covered in
releases after 12.0.525. I vaguely recall that there have been some
attempts

to make things better for WLM.

However it's at the expense of screwing up Excel 2007, so be wary before
you

update.

Re: [Bulk] [Bulk] jaws not reading next msg after ctrl-d delete

If I had a lot of customized files, I'd copy them first to another folder
somewhere on my hard drive. Then, once I had JAWS reinstalled and Excel was
working, I'd try copying them back. I don't know what to tell you about the
key conflicts, but I see your point on that one.

Re: [Bulk] [Bulk] yet another problem with JAWS

Terra,

Now you've confused me.

If you wanted to be using version 12.0.522, then why did you check for
updates? That would download 12.0.1669 and you're back where you started.

Turn off the automatic update feature in the JAWS Options/Basics dialog and
stay with the version you install (in your case 12.0.522).

And like David earlier I don't understand the role that Flash plays in your
decision to go back to 12.0.522.

anything. I can't see links, it won't read text, nothing. I can do an insert

Tabbing doesn't work either. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've made
