Do you mean turning autoforms mode off in JAWS?

Hi David,

Yes, any edit box in any web page. I apologize for not being able to explain
it properly, but I really find it annoying that whenever I am about to enter
some text, and if I accidentally arrow down, it predicts the text, and I can
read, for example, all what I had searched earlier in Google.

An excellent tutorial on making adjustments to keyboard layouts, Dave.
However, I understood Spencer to be saying that he couldn't find this key
combo in the list.

Spence,

There are some key combinations that I would swear were written for someone
with the dexterity of a spider monkey, but Inster+Ctrl+G is not one of them.

However if you do want to modify this key combination, Insert+F2, then k and

Enter to launch the keyboard manager. Then Ctrl+Shift+D (Sorry about that,
ouch!) and you should point to default. Tab to the next pane and arrow
up/down (no pain, there) and look for the offending keystroke.

Alternative to using the arrow keys, you could Press Ctrl+F (easy one,
that) and then press Insert+Ctrl+G (ouch, again) to search for that key
combination.

Interestingly enough I find that if I'm using a USB keyboard on my laptop
(and therefore using the laptop layout, several of the standard keystrokes
using the Insert on the NumPad are not recognized. I have to use the 6-pack
insert key or the CapsLock version of insert to get the keystroke to be
found.

And if you're into first-letter navigation, as am I, then when you are in
the list of key combinations, just press G to find things related to
graphics. Of course, you're looking for Auto-Label Graphics, so use the
letter "A".

Once you've found the one you want to change, then press Ctrl+H to open the
change dialog, tab to the "assign to" field and press your new key
combination of choice. Then tab to OK, press Enter, and ignore the warning
of overwriting another keystroke -- Since you're confidently not using any
other keystroke that's already defined, correct?

Good luck. Oh, and bear in mind that if you install a new version of JAWS
and overwrite your default.jkm file in your user settings, all this work
will be lost. So keep those custom files copied to a safe location.

Re: jaws and Microsoft reader

Chris Smart <csmart8@...>
 

Well, scripts have not yet been developed for it then.
So, how useable is the program with Jaws? If it is useful but not as simple as you'd like, consider writing some scripts for it.
You can check out the Basics of Scripting manual by going Start Menu, Jaws, Explore Jaws, Explore the Manuals.

Re: Select A Graphic.

Adrian Spratt
 

Spencer,

Your question is about a JAWS feature. I don't have a direct answer, but I'm
curious why you find this particular key combo such a strain, as compared
to, say, insert-alt-w for virtualizing the current window. With my right
hand, I put my little finger on the numbpad's insert key and my thumb on the
control key. My left hand's forefinger goes on the g. If you're using the
laptop keyboard layout, I'd think it's even easier on the hands.

Re: IE8 and IE9 crashing with Jaws 12

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

You're not far wrong. Some performance issues are directly attributable
to the presence of older OS's, bad news for those of us who don't' wish
to change. Sorry, but I liked it better when upgrading was relatively
inexpensive, nondestructive, and, if necessary, reversible.

I couldn't even get JAWS 12 to authorize--a huge strike against it. I
think it was suggested that I remove my present authorization. I
deferred, figuring I might wind up with a system in permanent demo mode.

Hi Crystal.

I can only report that Jaws 12 seems to work fine here. I have 11
around just in case, but at least with the latest version of 12,
things appear to be working well.

That's on a new system running Windows 7 64-bit. Maybe JFW 12
throws a fit if it's on an older machine with Vista or XP? I don't
know.

Chris, also hot here in Ontario Canada. 90 plus humidity that is -
probably not as hot as it is in Texas.

Thanks a bunch, Dave. I just sent it home, but will not bother with it now, for all the reasons yu stated. Too bad, though, as it remains a good idea. In the old days I always included a copy of my screenreader on a rescue or boot disk, so I could get out of whatever jam I was in. Ah, nostalgia!

All,

I'm not going to use this registry file on any computer I own for the
following reasons:

1. It was not stated but is written in the readme file that this is only for
Windows 7.
2. The readme file is so pporly written that I just don't trust the author
if they can't take the time to write coherently (that's prejudice I know,
but that's the way I judge people -- the way they write).
3. Visiting this person's MySpace page causes me great concern over their
outlook on life, in particular a song on the play list with the title:
"Donald Duck - **** you in the ***"

I've deleted this zip file from my computer and would not take a chance
screwing up my registry with it.

You decide on your own if you think it's worth the risk.

Hi,

You might want to consider subscribing to the blind-programming list.

I'm sure there you will receive much better hints than here!

HTH,

Hi Ed, thanks for the reply.

I thought about a script, but there are is a major issue with that solution: JAWS doesn't know where the cursor is and what is the mathematical expression. I am using a lot of processing in the background, and the content of the input is not the expression: it is not possible for JAWS to determine what to say at any point, and I am doing the work instead. This is why I was thinking of disabling the normal read until something happens, and it would help a lot if that something could be on the web page.
Alternatively, what I can do is write a script to do that and affect it to a custom hotkey, asking the user to press that hotkey when needed, but it could be very tedious for him and given what I understood about the script, I would have to modify the core scripts and that is never a good solution.

Have you thought about a script.
Arrow keys could default to normal action, that is, pass the arrow key through, except when certain conditions are satisfied.
So, if left arrow is pressed and character immediately to the right is the square root symbol, you could send a custom message, e.g., "out of square root." Of course, you would turn off speech first and then turn it on again, being sure to pass through the cursor.
Of course, your "if" statement in the script wouldn't be limited to the square root symbol, it would simply say what the particular character was, e.g., character to the right after a left arrow and character to the left after a right arrow.
Then, you would simply need to have the scripts distributed with your application.
The problem is that this is a Web application, and I'm not sure how to trigger your scripts with your application and not have them triggered for other web applications.

Subject: JAWS and advanced use of PC cursor

Dear JAWS users,

Disclamer: this email is very technical :)

I am currently developing a web application allowing the user to write, view and edit complex mathematical expressions. For that purpose, I am currently using a heavily modified input that replaces a lot of the normal web browser functions by my own. My current goal is to make that application accessible by blind users using JAWS.

Through a careful use of ARIA tags, including role=application and aria-live, I am able to have the content read perfectly by JAWS when the formula is already written, and one of my last and most difficult issues concern the moment where the user actually edits the formula.
I am trying to reproduce the PC cursor behavior when the user goes through the formula using the arrow keys: what I would like to do is replace the "normal" read by a custom one for mathematical operators. Typically, when the user is inside a square root symbol and presses left, I would like JAWS to say "out of square root". I managed to almost reproduce this behavior by using aria-live areas, but JAWS always tries to read the input content when the arrows are pressed, currently resulting in something like "blank out of square root".
Do you know if it is currently possible to either ask the user to change a JAWS setting by pressing a shortcut or by setting a specific tag somewhere on the page to prevent JAWS to say the character it fails to read in the input, or even tell JAWS directly what to say to avoid that "blank" word ?
Thanks a lot :)

Guillaume Rieublandou

Re: IE9 and typing web addresses

Hi Gezim,
you asked how to switch off autocomplete mode when typing in the edit field. Which edit field do you mean? Is it any edit box in a web page?
