moderated Turning off download announcement in Chrome

ann
 

Hi,


Is there any way to get Chrome to stop announcing a download in progress and its time remaining every minute or so? It's very annoying for a longer download. I've gone in to Chrome settings,and blocked all notifications, but this has no effect.


Thanks,

~Ann

Sadly, you will have to call Microsoft Accessibility I think and having them connect to your computer so you can show them that their instructions are wrong.

 

I just went through the Microsoft Disability answer desk web site specifically on adding alt text with a screen reader.

Their steps say to get focus on the image, press alt+j then p and tab to the format object item…only there is no format object item.

I had my sighted wife confirm, it isn’t there.  This is with Microsoft 365 Word 2016 and Jaws 2020, Narrator, and NVDA, none of which show that option.

 

Here is the page where I found their steps.  There is a topic specific to adding alt-text on this page:

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/use-a-screen-reader-to-insert-a-picture-or-image-in-word-e03b33b8-e96d-4f52-9a5f-12c5ab7d2580

 

I’m getting ready for work, so I don’t have time to call them myself.

If I have time this afternoon, I will.

Subject: Adding alt text in MSWord2016

 

Hello,

I am trying to add alt text to images in MSWord 2016 using JFW2018 and 2019, but I am not getting the format/alt options. Here are the steps I am following:

1. Select an image
2. Write click using tab+9 or shift+F10
3. This is where I am supposed to get format picture option in which the second tab would be for alt text, but using JFW I am not getting that option for format picture at all.

I have tried to insert alt text on two Windows-running PCs in MSWord2016, one with JFW2018 and the other JFW2019.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated

Thanks

remember correctly, this gives you options such as opening the calendar in
another window. However, I haven't looked at this recently, and I may not be

Apparently some of the newest AMD processors currently blow intel out of the water although the new 9th generation I7 is supposed to be also very good.

Hi.

 

I haven’t mudded in many many years, but I definitely found accessible clients. If you used to mud on an older oS, chances are whatever client you used then will still work in Windows 10. I honestly can’t remember the names of any – it’s something I was considering getting back into one of these days though. I would just look around for mud clients and try them out until you find one that you like and that works well, if you don’t already have something in mind from before your switch to Win 10.

Hi,
I have used JAWS on an AMD in the past and did not note any significant response difference. AMD's are not as good when it comes to updating drivers and the process it takes to do the update. Be sure whatever processor you choose that the video (graphics) chip and memory are sufficient. Again, this is my experience and others may differ. When talking with Vespiro tech support has told me that JAWS works fine on either system.
