tagging friends in facebook posts

Nickus de Vos <bigboy529@...>
 

Hi some of you might know that it's possible to add a friend as a link
in a facebook post. The way it works is to place the @ sign in front
of a persons name e.g. @peeter Smith, almost the same as on twitter
but then it opens a drop down menu to show you the person you
mentioned and you must click on the name in the list. Have any of you
tryed this with jaws, and how do you click the name in the list? I
mostly use m.facebook.com even on my pc because it's most accessible
with jaws but have tryed both sites and can't click the name in the
drop down menu.


Add-on to unclutter websites?

Robbie
 

Hi! does anyone know of an add-on for Firefox that cleans out these
infernal Google ads and all the Facebook and Twitter widgets? It's
exasperating to have to navigate through all that stuff just to read the
second half of an article or even get to the article in the first place.
I'D be grateful for any suggestions.
Thanks, Robbie

and the persistence of the > than sign in the heart of the saved message?

if so you need a "Email stripper" similar to those set up for windows XP by folks.

there are a couple geared to working with the XP grade Email clients to be found on:
www.jfwlite.com/programs

and probably a lot more of them for the later made clients on the web, especially at places like:

Outlook 2007 Calendar and JAWS

Charlie Macdonald <charlie.mac@...>
 

Greetings: I've just started to use Outlook 2007 at work and having some
difficulty getting the calendar view set ... are there any suggested
settings for Outlook to make the calendar more responsive to JAWS .. For
example with view set to "week" I cannot move day to day with the right
arrow although to a sighted person using the right arrow does advance the
calendar but JAWS is stuck on the current day .. I called FS help desk and
the fellow on the desk had the same problem but could not help me.
I'm using the latest version of Jaws 12 and it's a vista operating system
...
Many thanks for any suggestions,
Regards,
Charlie.

Re: Need refresher on how to configure varous voices in Jaws 12withWindows 7

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Having just had my laptop "upgraded" to Windows 7, I'm in the same boat as is Tom.
I think, actually, there are two routes, with variations along the way.
You can create separate voice profiles indeed. Different profiles can employ different synthesizers. I now have a profile for Eloquence and one for Samantha of the Solo RealSpeak voices.
In addition, however, you can create a different voice scheme. I've done this principally by modifying and renaming schemes Freedom Scientific provides by default.
JAWS key plus alt plus S will get into the voice schemes. Here, you can set different voices for different items, including bold and so on.
Under the voice alias setting, you can create your own custom voice, combining one of the named voices with your own pitch and so on.

Depends. If the presentation has an outline or presentor notes, those can be
saved as a text file or rtf from within ppt. I usually find it most
effective to go to File/save as/ and select PDF as the file type. This will
save the text and other stuff out to a pdf file which is readable with jaws
or you can then use a conversion application to convert the pdf to word. I
find it interesting that office doesn't provide for a cleaner conversion of
a ppt to a .doc or .rtf. there is an option to save as word but this keeps
the thing in slide form that is cumbersome with JAWS.
