Jaws 11 squishes everything together on screen

Samara Raine <samararaine@...>
 

Is it just me, or does Jaws 11 squish everything together on the screen. For example, on m.facebook.com, there are no blank lines between posts and such. The entire wall (or main page, depending on whether or not you're logged in) is all one huge block of text. Is there a way to edit this? To get jaws to show the blank lines that I know are there? Jaws 10 did it just fine.

Re: What to do about XP machines

Tom Lange
 

Hi,
I'll chime in on this one. I use JAWS 12 build 1170 on my XP Pro box here at home and it's working fine for me. It's very stable. Are there quirks? Oh yeah, definitely, but I can live with them; none of them are showstoppers by any means. I've still got Office 2003 on this one and it works okay with version 12, too. My laptop and the machines that I use in the lab at work are all running Windows 7 with either Office 2007 or Office 2010, and I see odd behaviors that are more serious. For example, In Word, if I switch to the JAWS cursor while in a document, I can't use normal reading commands; the JAWS cursor just doesn't track right. I haven't nailed down why that's happening, but let me tell you, when I'm trying to show a student the differences between how the PC and JAWS cursors are supposed to act, that kind of weird behavior is hard to explain away other than to say that it's just some sort of mysterious JAWS fluke, and that's not cool. Anybody got an answer to that one? Tech support sure didn't. Hmmm.

Hello, everyone.

In a recent post, I believe Adrian said the following:

"Many listers have reported flaws in JAWS 12,
possibly because it is more directed to Windows 7 than XP. ... I
still use XP Pro,
and the warnings on this list have convinced me to stay with JAWS 11,
even
though my SMA entitles me to JAWS 12."

The timing for this comment couldn't have been better in my case.

Although this is likely to change soon as my University switches
us all completely over to Windows 7, my desktop at work is still
an XP machine, and still has Jaws 11. The back-up PC I have at
home is an XP machine, and that too has Jaws 11.

So, is the collective wisdom of the group to keep things as they
are now on the XP machines, rather than installing Jaws 12 which
seems to be geared more to Windows 7?

If this is true, you guys have just saved me some head-aches with
my remaining XP computers, and I thank you sincerely for that.

I'll save my headaches for installing Jaws 12 on the new Windows 7
laptop the University will give me this week. (smile)

Re: Where to get optimal settings for IE 7 and 8 to work withScreen-readers?

Adrian Spratt
 

Do I understand you to be asking how to make JAWS work with IE7? No need to
fix anything. I'm using JAWS both 11 and 12 along with IE8 and XP without
any JAWS tweaking. IE7 worked fine with JAWS 11.

Hello everyone:

I recently had to upgrade my motherboard and bootable hard drive for my
computer.

As a result, the old immages I have stored on an external USB hard drive are
no longer available to me, as they were for my original motherboard and
bootable hard drive.

Having installed Windows XP Pro again and upgraded Internet Explorer to
Version 7, from the default Version 6, which came on the Windows
Installation CD, I need to configure IE 7 to work with the best settings for
a screen-reader.

Can anyone on the list suggest a site, where I can get such settings.

All helpful suggestions will be welcome.

Thanks in anticipation.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

you can use slimftp and its free. it uses a script file like apache2 does and is very easy to setup. i run it myself. you could install the apache2triad and it includes slimftp as well as http, sql, and pyphon.

Tom,

While several people have reported issues, I've not had any and I
am running XP here with Jaws 12 Pro.

Hello, everyone.

In a recent post, I believe Adrian said the following:

"Many listers have reported flaws in JAWS 12,
possibly because it is more directed to Windows 7 than XP. ... I
still use XP Pro,
and the warnings on this list have convinced me to stay with JAWS 11,
even
though my SMA entitles me to JAWS 12."

The timing for this comment couldn't have been better in my case.

Although this is likely to change soon as my University switches
us all completely over to Windows 7, my desktop at work is still
an XP machine, and still has Jaws 11. The back-up PC I have at
home is an XP machine, and that too has Jaws 11.

So, is the collective wisdom of the group to keep things as they
are now on the XP machines, rather than installing Jaws 12 which
seems to be geared more to Windows 7?

If this is true, you guys have just saved me some head-aches with
my remaining XP computers, and I thank you sincerely for that.

I'll save my headaches for installing Jaws 12 on the new Windows 7
laptop the University will give me this week. (smile)

Tom in Michigan

Uninstall JAWS 12 including shared files and user settings. Then reinstall
it again. It fixed it for me. Remember to back up any special scripts you
may have installed before you do this.

The best accessible FTP-server with JAWS

Anders Boholdt-Petersen
 

Hi everyone,

I looking after a FTP-server I can install on my Windows-computer where I can create users, set privileges to shared directorys et cetera.

After that I will give my computer a static IP-address, so I can forward the port in my router.

What is the best accessible FTP-server with JAWS (using JAWS 11 and 12)?

I have both Windows XP Service Pack 3 (HOME), and Windows 7 64-bit (also HOME-version).

Very thanks for the answer.

Regards,
Anders

"Many listers have reported flaws in JAWS 12,
possibly because it is more directed to Windows 7 than XP. ... I
still use XP Pro,
and the warnings on this list have convinced me to stay with JAWS 11,
even
though my SMA entitles me to JAWS 12."

The timing for this comment couldn't have been better in my case.

Although this is likely to change soon as my University switches
us all completely over to Windows 7, my desktop at work is still
an XP machine, and still has Jaws 11. The back-up PC I have at
home is an XP machine, and that too has Jaws 11.

So, is the collective wisdom of the group to keep things as they
are now on the XP machines, rather than installing Jaws 12 which
seems to be geared more to Windows 7?

If this is true, you guys have just saved me some head-aches with
my remaining XP computers, and I thank you sincerely for that.

I'll save my headaches for installing Jaws 12 on the new Windows 7
laptop the University will give me this week. (smile)

Re: What to do about XP machines

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Actually, 11 wasn't so hot with XP either. I won't recount my story
again; I'm sure veterans will remember it.

Re: Identifying colors in word

Kimber Gardner
 

Thanks Ed. Excellent instructions.

And thanks to everyone who offered help and suggestions. I was able to
independently edit/revise my document and have learned a few things
along the way.

Kimberly

Kimberly:
Too bad the revisions were not made with track changes. Here is how to
search for color. Then, I'll describe how to create a Word hotkey.

To search for a color:
1. Press control plus f
2. tab over until you hear "more" and press space bar
3. tab over until you hear format
4. Arrow down until you hear font and then press ENTER to open the dialog
box
5. tab over until you find yourself in the familiar color choice box. Pick
your color and tab to OKK
6. Once this is set, you can jump quickly using the repeat find command,
shift plus F4
Remember to clear this out before doing other searches. If you later want
to find "Mississippi," it won't find it unless it is also in the identified
color. So, that's why clearing out the color is so important when you are
finished.

Now, to create a Word hot key. I know this is available in Word 2007 and
Word 2010, but I don't know how to get in to the right place since I've only
tinkered with Word 2010 on my wife's computer. Once you get in, however, I
understand the process is identical.
1. From tools, go to "Customize" -- one menu choice up from "options"
2. Press control tab until you hear "commands"
3. Tab once. You will be in a list of command categories, e.g., File,
Edit, and so on. If you aren't sure exactly where the command is, arrow
down to "all," I recommend this. Don't worry, the list won't be all that
long and besides, you don't pick your command yet. You still have to pick
keyboard (See below).
4. Here is the tricky part, this step seems a little redundant because you
still have to tab over to keyboard. Do that and press ENTER.
5. Now, you have the same list of command categories. Again, if you are
unsure, you can arrow down and pick ALL. I always do that.
6. Tab over for a list of commands. For example, try "next revision or
comment." To get there quickly, hit "N" until you hear that command
8. tab across until you get to the place where you can enter the new key.
In my case, for "Next revision or Window," I pressed alt plus shift plus r.
9. You can go back and change or create other commands. Some are defined
by Microsoft already. For instance alt plus F7 is next misspelling.
10. When finished, tab across to "close"
11. You will have to tab to close a second time, and you are done.
I use automatic cross-references, and inserting a cross-reference is a pain
using menus. For me alt plus shift plus X inserts the cross-reference with
one keystroke.
This sounds more complicated than it is.
Good luck!

Hi Ed,

I'm probably going to have to use the find in word to search for
colors as the document is rather large, but at least it sounds doable.

What are the steps for defining a hot key under keyboard? I've never done
that.

Thanks for all the help.

Searching for color changes is possible in word. Not sure which version

will look for all the yellow and then all the red and so on. That's not
all
that satisfying.
Be sure the changes are not in track changes. They will appear in
different
colors too, and sighted folks may not know the difference.
You can jump to changes in track changes multiple ways.
With JAWS, press Insert plus z to turn on those quick keys or whatever
they
are called. Then, simply press r to jump to the next revision.
In the reviewing task bar, you can tab to "next," but that's lots of
tabbing
and quite slow
Finally, you can do what I did. Inside Word options and keyboard, you can
create your own shortcut keys. In my case, I set Shift plus alt plus r to
jump to the "next" revision.
Finally, if the document has track changes, you will want to turn them on
with insert plus v.
Hope this helps.

Thanks so much Tom and Dave. That works great.

Now, is there a way to jump from one piece of colored text to the
next? I don't see a navigation quick key for it, but I'm wondering if
it would be possible to perhaps do it with a macro or a script?

Thanks,

1. Press alt+insert+s to bring up the scheme selection dialog.
2. Make a mental note of which scheme is currently active; it's probably
"classic". This is important in case you want to come back to it later.
3. Arrow up or down to the scheme that sounds right for you, then press
enter.
4. Go to the top of your document and do a say-all. You should hear JAWS
identify colors and/or attributes as they change.
5. When you're through, go back into the schemes selections and restore
the
original scheme so that you don't hear that extra info every time you get
into Word.

Hope this helps.

I have a word document in which text has been highlighted using

How to I tell Jaws 12 to identify the different colors of text as I
