Look in edit/preferences/security enhanced.  Make sure protected mode at startup is unchecked, and might as well uncheck enhanced security just in case.

moderated can't use OneNote web cliipper with jaws & latest version of Edge?

Jessica D <jldail13@...>
 

Hi,

 

I found something on the web, that I wanted to save into OneNote.

I was trying to use jaws2020, with the latest version of edge.

However, I couldn’t activate the button that says, “OneNote web clipper”

What can I do to get this button to activate?

I managed to save my item, using google chrome.

 

I’d prefer to use Edge at all times, if I could.

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

Ann,

            If you're just trying to upload it so that other people can download it, then you literally just activate the New button in the Google Drive window (I'm presuming web interface here) and you'll be given a context menu that includes File Upload.  You'd select that and go through the usual steps with Windows to navigate to and select the file you wish to upload.

            If you're talking about actually creating a Google Doc, then you'd follow the above up to the New button, but go to Google Docs in the context menu and select the Blank Document option from its submenu.  Then copy all of your original Word document, paste it in to the Google Doc, then save it.

            I have scads of actual MS-Word documents on Google Drive, but don't use Google Docs itself to create and edit documents.

Hi Gezim,

 

I had the exact same problem with jaws 2018. It happened after an update to the pdf reader.

I fixed it as bill stated below.

One more thing:

You might want to disable the adobe update service.

This can be done by using the windows key+r

A run dialogue will appear.

Type “services.msc”

Scroll down through the services until you see the adobe update service.

It will show as “running automatic”.

Disable it.

Now, you will have to check manually for updates. If you don’t want them, then you don’t have to worry about your software changing without your knowledge.

However, if you do choose to update adobe again, the service will be set back to “run automatic”

You will need to disable it again as mentioned above.

 

Regards,

 

pat

moderated Re: advanced users: Multiple cursors

JM Casey
 

System focus doesn’t move as freely as mouse pointer, and moving jaws cursor to pc cursor will move your mouse pointer where system focus is, most useful so you can click something with the mouse or mouse simulator keys on the keyboard/number pad.

 

You can basically do what you’ve described. In addition to the JAWS cursor you have the invisible cursor, which as far as I know is really just for reading/doesn’t move the mouse pointer.

I sometimes wonder if all the cursors and system focus in JAWS can be moved to separate spots on the page, as if you had one hand feeling the top of the wall and the other hand feeling a lower part of the wall, each hand gathering information from different places. For example, I noticed you can route the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor. But I don't think I have a firm understanding of that. Can intermediate or advanced JAWS users say something about that?

Hi, Jim. The reason for having check boxes by the files is to show which file or files you have selected. It's just another visual way of highlighting files that are selected.

Tab to the tree view and find the item called "Use check boxes to select items." I pressed the letter U and jumped right to it.

Press spacebar to unselect the tree view item.

Tab to OK and press spacebar.

 

If File Explorer is different than Windows Explorer, maybe File Explorer copied the menu choices, property page and so on from Windows Explorer. Couldn't hurt to try.

Larry, for finding accessible astronomy software, if you're willing, you can go to eyesonsuccess.net, do a search for astronomy, and contact the most likely interviewee who you can ask and get a helpful answer. there are four episodes where you can find the show notes which would have the contact information of the interviewees.

Hi Robin,
There are times you might need to route the Jaws cursor to simulate a mouse click, but the other examples should not require a Jaws cursor.
For dialog boxes, it is easier to virtualized the window and read it with the PC cursor, that command is alt capslock (jaws cursor if not using laptop layout) and W.
And the other thing, you should not need a jaws cursor to read letter by letter in eMails, the PC cursor does all that.
Note, even if you have a desktop keyboard, you will have nothing to lose by using laptop layout and you will gain a lot of extra usage.
Like the use of the caps lock as a modifier.

Mark,

I’m still getting my head around using the JAWS cursor, as it doesn’t work like what I was  used to with Window Eyes.  As far as routing the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor, there are a couple of reasons I have found to need to do this.

  • I might be on a page and need to click something with the mouse.  I’ll hit the key to route the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor. It’s not always perfect in doing this on web pages, but is generally accurate in editable documents. 
  • I’ve also been advised to use this in dialog boxes that aread reading fully or where I need to read the contents line by line or character by character.  If a dialog opens, I may route the JAWS cursor, then hit insert R to restrict the boundaries for where the JAWS cursor can move, then arrow up and down to read the contents of the box with the JAWS cursor.
  • If I want to read an email address in Outlook character by character, I might route the JAWS cursor to it, then use the left and right arrow keys to read letter by letter. 

One tip I’ve appreciated is to change the voice used for JAWS cursor so that you are clear as to which cursor you are using.  I have a male voice for my PC cursor, and a female voice for when I enable the JAWS cursor.
