Never a truer word has been spoken.  I remember a couple of people offered or did help with something I needed help with.  The one offering help at cost of course, his spelling was so atrocious that I wondered if he cares so little about spelling and grammar, how could he do a good job on what I wanted? Of course, that is just me.  Some don’t care.

Rayn,

           If you were attempting to give an e-mail address for Roger Cusson it did not paste correctly.   All that's available is "seeing_hands@" followed by three dots (literally), or at least that's all I'm seeing on the web interface, which is now supposed to allow me to see full e-mail addresses in message bodies.

           If others can see the whole thing, please let me know by using the "Reply to Sender" link that will be at the bottom of this message.  I'd need to take this up either with the group owner or the site owner as the issue could be in one of several places.

            I would also suggest you think about joining the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users Group:


There are just under 600 members at the moment and we're anticipating "the next wave" of members when Windows 7 hits end of life in January.

I dont know of any. But it is just a matter of getting used to a few changes. most settings are like 7 but some arent. There are also new ones that are intended for phones that dont have any use to us and can be ignored.

Here is a link to everything I have that may help you:

Just so we're clear, do you mean a footnote or a page footer?   I suspect the latter.

It will also matter if you just want to remove a footer, if that's what you're actually removing, from the first page, a single subsequent page, or all pages.

See: http://jscholes.net/project/codex/
For everything having to do with Codex.
I belong to something like 7 different public library systems and at this
point, I'm able to get pretty much everything I want through them. Amazon
partners with libraries, but I always select the ePub downloadable version
now. It more or less eliminates the Kindle conversion step. I can't recall
the last time I had to pick a kindle formatted title to then convert via
Codex.
Seriously people, support your local library.
I still have the older Kindle program installed just in case. It really does
suck accessibility-wise, but for conversion purposes with Codex, you only
want it for the sole ability to download the book in question. The trickiest
part is getting registered as that part isn't Jaws accessible. There's a
walkthrough on that Codex site that explains.

I have the latest version of the Kindle app. However, reading results are
extremely inconsistent with JAWS. Sometimes, nothing on the screen is read.

navigation key commands or continuous reading will advance the text. It's as
though there is no more text on the screen but the current page. At those
times, I've tried page up and down, control+page up and down, control+end,

My good man, are you saying that I could use Codex to convert Kindle content
to plain text, thereby obviating the reader altogether? I would love this
option. Where can I download Codex?

Provided you can provide your e-mail address and its password, the rest of the account setup under Outlook (365 and several generations before it) is entirely automated.

Gmail is definitely in Microsoft's database of providers as far as the setup process being able to find server names and ports on its own.

Hi.

As long as you are running version 1.19 or later of the Kindle app JAWS
should provide the same level of accessibility as what you're
experiencing with NVDA. I actually would not recommend downloading an

content using other programs or even other devices, such as being able

Hi all,
I have been using kindle for pc and have met few issues with the latest jaws
on books I have downloaded. I can read in Braille as well as listen, and
unlike with previous versions, I was recently able to read the book's
footnotes as links in their place. I cannot speak about nvda and I can
really not know what has gone wrong for Orlando, however I would say
that, although not perfect, kindle has become very very usable for me.
Kinde st regards,
Takis

I've got an older version of Kindle for PC installed on a couple of

While I'm a QRead user for eBooks, it would be nice to know if the Kindle
