Contact Novatech, a very well-known and reputable company in your country who have built quality machines for several folks I know. If you can't find out how to do so, email me privately and I'll get you some phone numbers. They may not be in your neck of the wood though, so you may have to do this buying by mail, or they may tell you they have an outlet in or near your location.

Hello everyone:

I am looking for either a brand name laptop or one I can build myself or have built for me, which has room for not only the system hard drive but also has an additional hard drive for data.

I want the speed of an SSD drive and an HDD drive for storing my data files.

I have looked on the internet for a laptop with this configuration, with no success.

Any ideas?

Yes, and there is nothing wrong with posting relevant information to two lists, not all members on this Jaws list may be on whatever other list you refer to .

So, you want to share the name of the list, or is that not allowed by the list rules?
All this compartmentalization and secrecy is rather annoying.

Hi,


I'm running latest Windows10 with the latest version of Jaws. How can i act on a notification in Windows10? I know about hitting Windows+a and getting the list of notifications to appear, but then when one says click here, how do I activate that notification? Pressing enter or the Space bar often just takes me to a Clear Al Notification button.


Thanks for any help,

Good afternoon,

no disrespect, you really need to do something about your typing, it's really not readable. or you need to use a spellchecker, which may not even work.

never the less,

to get the BCC field in outlook,

 

1, ctrl+n=new message,

2, alt+p=options,

3, press the letter b=bcc,

so, alt+p/b

Hi, Brian. Clearing only the cache may not clear visited links. You might need to clear the browser history itself, and maybe even the saved web pages to clear visited links.

Marty,

            One of the reasons I use third-party tools rather than a browser's built-in history clearing function is that they consistently give you much better control over exactly what aspects of history get deleted.   I like to clear browser cache on a regular basis, but leave pretty much all else unchanged.

             If this is something you anticipate needing to do I would encourage you to take a look at Bleach Bit.  I used to say CCleaner but it seems that accessibility issues have become substantial.  I haven't yet played with Bleach Bit with a screen reader but the nature of it's UI (which is more in the style of "old Windows") makes me guess that it will probably be less problematic from an accessibility standpoint.

             If there are any Bleach Bit users here who can attest to its accessibility, or problems with same, that would be good to know about.

Hi, Marty. Next time, before deleting the Browser history, just uncheck passwords from the data which will be deleted when you clear your history. Which browser are you using? If I know this, I might be able to tell you which check box to clear, depending upon whether or not I am familiar with that browser. I am not familiar with Chrome’s settings.

If you clear your browser history that generally resets all knowledge of what links have been previously visited or not.

This can be done using a given web browser's built-in clear history option or via a third party tool like CCleaner (Internet History or History for a given browser) or BleachBit (URL History or History for a given browser).

I’m not finding a way to disable the announcement of visited links. In your situation, I might use the list of links, with multiple first-letter navigation available to get to the link you want, or I might set place markers on a few strategic places, or I might use JAWS Find. With that, given that search strings are retained on a per-site basis, you could use Find and arrow quickly to the desired term to get you to the desired page. I think as time goes by, and you don’t visit some of those links often, they will no longer show as visited.

Hello,  Does anyone know if there is a way to clear visited links from a website?  Certain websites that I visit on a regular basis to manage data have all or most of the links announced by JAWS as “Visited Link.”  This is because as I was getting familiar with the links on the site, I had hit Enter on them to explore what they would do.  Now, I know where I want to go and just typing the letter V for visited link to find the one that I need would be much easier if I could start over and not have JAWS announce all links as “Visited Link.”.

Kevin uses the editor Notepad Plus Plus (Notepad++.) that is not the editor that comes with Windows. I don't think Notepad has the capacity to show indentation, but somebody can correct me on that.

I'm working through the JFW Scripting manual and am wondering if it's
possible to have JFW announce tabs within a text document. I'm on Chapter 9
and have to write If-Then statements, and have to indent some of the script

review the manual, and the tabbed lines don't seem to show on my Braille
display.

Any thoughts?

Hi all,

 

The following was prompted by threads on numerous mailing lists regarding Windows 10 toasts/notifications (they are really the same thing). I hope it can serve as a handy reference in answer all sorts of questions you may have about them (a copy of the below FAQ was sent to a Windows 10 list).

 

Q. What are toasts?

 

Another name for notifications. Basically, when an application (regardless of source; see below) presents a notification, Windows 10 will present a message on the right-hand side of the screen that’ll go away after a short while.

 

Q. Which apps or situations can send notifications?

 

Any app capable of sending notifications will ask Windows to present notifications. These include installed apps, web applications and certain websites, and Windows itself.

 

Q. How do I interact with notifications when they appear?

 

Depending on which Windows 10 release you are using (you can check this by opening About Windows/Winver):

 

  • Version 1803 (April 2018 Update) and earlier: press Windows+V.
  • Version 1809 (October 2018 Update) and later: press Windows+Shift+V.

 

Note: Version 1809 and later reserves Windows+V for clipboard history (a separate topic).

 

Q. What if I miss these notifications?

 

All notifications will eventually end up on Action Center (Windows+A).

 

Q. While using Skype in the background, I get a call. How can I answer calls?

 

Incoming calls are notifications. Therefore you can activate these notifications and press Enter to accept or use options to decline the call.

 

Q. I’m using a recent version of Chrome and somehow I get notifications from nowhere. What should I do?

 

Web applications, or more specifically, apps for websites can send notifications through a web browser. Just like any notification, you can activate the notification and deal with it.

 

Although each web browser differs in terms of stopping these notifications, the general steps involve opening the web browser and asking it to stop sending notifications.

 

Q. How come some notifications have additional controls, not just a button to dismiss it?

 

These are called actionable notifications. If an app wants you to take a follow-up action (such as answering a call on Skype), the notification will feature additional controls such as an edit field to send a reply, answering a call, opening a specific app, or taking additional actions.

 

Q. I don’t want to see notifications from certain apps. How can I configure this?

 

To configure this, open Settings (Windows+I)/System/notifications and Actions. Scroll (press Tab) through this screen, and from “get notifications from these senders” section, go through each app and toggle the notifications on or off.

 

Q. What if I want to tell apps I don’t want to see notifications while I’m busy with something?

 

This is done by setting up focus assist (formerly quiet hours). As of Version 1903 (May 2019 Update), focus assist can be used to silence notifications while you are in a full-screen application or playing games, as well as asking Windows to send notifications from a priority list or alarms.

 

At least the above FAQ should cover majority of cases. Please let us know if other scenarios should be added.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,
You might be right. But note that interacting with notifications can be learned across screen reader boundaries.
Based on comments I've got, an FAQ about notifications/toasts will be sent to screen reader mailing lists.
Cheers,
Joseph

I dont follow your logic. Interacting with Windows, programs and notifications is all inclusive of useing a screenreader. If the info is helpfull to all screenreaders doesnt mean it should not be shared with the Jaws list.

Hi,
The list in question (Win10) is a bit more general than this one, and
interacting with notifications transcends screen readers.

So, you want to share the name of the list, or is that not allowed by
the list rules?
All this compartmentalization and secrecy is rather annoying.

Hi,
Because it is very general enough that it doesn't matter which screen
reader is in use.

What do you mean by a "More dedicated list"? Why not here?

Hi,
As a follow-up, if it hasn't been done already, I'll post a note or
two
regarding interacting with notifications on the fly (not here, but on
a more dedicated list).

Hi,
Press Windows+Shift+V to move focus to the given notification and
interact with it.

Hi,


I'm running latest Windows10 with the latest version of Jaws. How
can i
act on a notification in Windows10? I know about hitting Windows+a and
getting the list of notifications to appear, but then when one says
click here, how do I activate that notification? Pressing enter or the
Space bar often just takes me to a Clear Al Notification button.

Thanks for any help,

~Ann
