How to Use JAWS Scripting to Accommodate Accessibility Barriers in the Workplace by Larry Lewis

April 23 at 1pm ET

Description

This webinar will introduce common accessibility barriers vision-impaired employees face in vocational settings as well as identify challenges faced by employers when providing accommodations to overcome these barriers. Attendees will learn how to offer reasonable accommodations to vision-impaired employees through strategic planning, execution of a targeted assessment, and JAWS for Windows scripting services. The webinar will place special emphasis on independent and efficient task completion that will result in maximum productivity and efficiency when operating in a competitive work environment. Strategies for incorporating digital accessibility know-how across a worksite to raise awareness among the vision-impaired employees’ sighted co-workers will also be addressed.

If you're referring to a single, specific message then I believe Bill White is correct:  it's got something to do with large embedded or attached content.

Norma,

Glad it worked.  I don’t know that it works as consistently as I’d like and the label JAWS reads aloud for that box could be better.  If you cannot get Alt A to work, try tabbing around the dialog a bit, then doing Alt A.  This seems to help.

Hi Robin,

 

I had previously tried Alt A to get into the address field with no luck. But, I tried it just now and it did the trick. I don’t know what the problem was previously, with Office 365 and Jaws it could be any number of things. I am just so glad that you made the Alt A suggestion and it worked.

 

With much appreciation,

Norma

Norma,

I’m in JAWS 2020 with Office 365.   It’s not operating as smoothly as I would like, but I’m able to read it.   It seems like JAWS loses focus a bit and also sometimes read a bit extra.  There is a shortcut key of Alt A to get to the text box where the address can be typed or appears if you hit the label option after selecting the text you  wanted in your label.   I’m not sure that I have a consistent work around and I’m heading into a meeting, but a quick answer is to use Alt A and either Insert tab or Insert up arrow to read the current line.  It seems that if I type my address into the text field in the label dialog, I can hear as I type, but I am not consistently able to reread what I typed without navigating away, using Alt A, then one of the read line options.   I’ll come back to this conversation later and see if I can help anymore later today.

I also forgot to ask, what label template?    I can try to play with this later today or this evening with JAWS and see what happens for me.  It's helpful to know exactly what it is you're trying to accomplish and how you're going about doing it.

Hello,

 

I have some steps you can use regardless of which browser you are using.  This works in Windows 10.  I do not know if it works in earlier versions of Windows.  This works for all sorts of things to send to your desktop like folders, documents, or even a commonly used email address.

 

Go to your desktop.  Press control-space bar to deselect anything on your desktop. 

Press the applications key or shift-10.

Arrow up or down to new and press enter.

Arrow to shortcut and press enter.

You will be in an edit field.  Type or copy/paste your web site URL.

Tab to next button and press enter.

On the next screen give this a name and tab to finish.  Press enter.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Barbara

Hi!

 

I am using Windows 10, JAWS 2019 and Firefox.  Unlike in IE, Firefox seems not to have the “Send Shortcut to Desktop” command.  I use to have an extension called something like “Deskcut” in my Firefox, but apparently it became deprecated and was automatically removed.  So, is there any easy way natively within Firefox, or a good extension for, sending a link to the currently viewed website (i.e., its URL) to the desktop?

Hello everyone:

The other day, I accessed a web site, which on the whole, was very
accessible.

Unfortunately, there were 2 problems. the first, was the link, which took
you to the shopping basket page. This link had no text lable, to tell a user
of a screen reader the purpose of the link. The link is a standard HTML
coded link.

the second is a standard HTML button, which also does not have a text label.
This button is for removing an item from the shopping basket.

My question is, is there a way within JAWS, where you can attach labels to
specific links and buttons on an individual web site?

The link and button on this web site are not graphics

Thanks in anticipation.

Dave Durber

As for where to report a bug I'm sure you can look at amazon and go through their help files and it will tell you where to report it. 

I hadn't had a chance to check it out with another screen reader yet but I actually have experienced this with jaws. If when you alt tab back to Kindle you tab over 1 spot to library and shift tab back into the document your cursor will reappear. Also If you will remember to maximize the kindle window, you have to do it from your library it won't let you do it from inside the book, this doesn't happen.

Reaper is not that much more costly than Goldwave at all.
It's definitely more powerful, versatile and so on.
But it's also much, much more complex piece of software. There is a
considerable learning curve if you haven't used serious DAWs before. At
least I find it so -- your milage may vary.
So again it depends on what you'd like to do. Goldwave is a good little
programme for single track editing and your money would be well spent.
However, if you are looking into doing serious audio work...multitracking,
complex efects chains, adaptability with various sorts of vst
plugins...Reaper may also be worth the investment.
If you're new to multitrack editing, you could certainly start with
Audacity. It is free and unlike goldwave it does have true multitrack
capability.

decided to try a wifi 6 router. I purchased a Netgear Nighthawk. (I
don't recall
the model number.) And set it up with my wife's sighted assistance. All
went well except my Lenovo Flex laptop simply didn't see either the 2.4
or 5 GHz
bands. I called Netgear support and waited for literally hours to talk
to customer (dis)service only to get disconnected without a solution. I
wasn't going
to wait around for several more hours, so I returned the Netgear router
and purchased a TP-Link Archer AX50.

I encountered a few glitches with its setup as well, but I got them all
resolved. First, I had the same problem with the AX50 not being seen by
my Lenovo
laptop, so I had my wife help me set it up using her iPad. We had some
trouble getting our preferred password to work. I think the iPad was
substituting
some special characters which the router didn't like.

Since my laptop was the only device that didn't want to connect to the
network, I figured it was probably a driver issue, so I went looking for
a driver
update. I first checked Windows update, but it said my driver was up to
date. I then went to the Lenovo website, but couldn't find anything that
looked
like a driver update for the wireless adaptor in my Flex laptop.
Finally, I scoured the Intel website and after much hunting around, I
found a driver update
for my wireless network adapter. I installed it and restarted my computer.

At last, all my devices connected to my new wifi 6 router, including my
Lenovo laptop. And so far, (crossing fingers) no crashes! And I was able
to enter
my preferred password from my laptop.

To summarize, my Lenovo laptop needed a driver update in order to work
with a wifi 6 router. The Netgear probably would have worked with the
driver update,
but I'm happy with the TP-Link and it was actually a bit less expensive.
I have noticed that I don't get quite as fast download speeds, but that
could
be due to any number of reasons, such as a busier Internet or even the
driver update. Getting a slightly diminished download speed is way
better than having
to reboot my router several times a day.

I guess time will tell whether I made a good decision in choosing this
router.

Does a triband router support more devices? I've read something about
streams and the speeds a router will provide. What should I be looking for
in a router? Brand recommendations would also be helpful.

Doug lee has GoldWave scripts that I think he updated from someone else.
I find them most helpful to know where you are in a file or to quickly check the duration of a file.

Hm. I didn't think Doug Lee had scripts for goldwave. I'll have to look as that's news to me.
Strictly speaking I feel like scripts aren't that necessary with GW -- but they do add a little more audio feedback for certain things, which could be helpful. There's also an add-on for NVDA, which is also pretty talkative.

IMO, the latest version of Goldwave with the scripts. there are scripts from Doug Lee (dlee.org) or the free ones floating around. I haven't got a clue which are better.

Greetings,
Which of these two audio editing programs would you recommend? I have used both a bit. I am using JAWS 2019 with a new laptop, running Windows 10. Which program is better in terms of being user-friendly, working well with JAWS, the ability to easily adjust levels for mixing voice and music beds, etc.?
Thank you for your advice.
Regards,
Craig

I am sending the router back to Amazon. I had my daughter look at it and she tells me that the power light, which was supposed to light up amber when starting and turn white when ready, was not turning white after 2 minutes as stated in the user's manual. The trouble shooting section stated that this may happen if there was a defective unit, so it is going back.

Hi, this is Marty, the originator of this thread. I purchased a Netgear
Nighthawk router, Model R6400, not the newest, from Amazon. It did not come
with the set up CD, nor did it come with a owners manual, but I was able to
find it on line and downloaded it. After plugging it in, now I can't seem
to log in to it using the log in address on the sticker on the bottom of the
router. I saw something somewhere that said to make sure that something was
set to connect to IP and DNS. Where would I go to check this setting. I am
using Windows 7 and JAWS 2020. I have tried logging on with IE, Firefox and
Chrome, but each time, I get the Page Cannot be found screen. Any
suggestions?
