Use the Windows search box, enter the title of the CD, and press enter. It should find that folder; arrow down through the list until you get to it. Press the applications key (right click or shift + f10 if you lack an applications key), and press enter on "go to folder", or something similar. That should launch File Explorer. Once that opens, you can use the F6 key to get to the path, and then you will know where Windows has been storing those ripped CDs.

Hi George,
One thing you can do with Jaws is to press insert + number pad 2 while still holding the shift key, or before letting go of the shift key, this will tell you what is currently selected.
You mentioned that you checked to see what was highlighted, but I am not sure if you used the above command to check this.

Hi List-
 
Well I have noticed a problem with Jaws and deleting files.  I had four files on a thumb drive I wanted to get rid of.  I highlighted them and then hit the delete key.  Well, all my files, (not folders) were deleted from the thumb drive.  I was able to recover most of them, but it took a lot of time and work and worry!!!
 
I then tried it on another thumb drive with NVDA....no problem, worked great!
 
Then I went back to Jaws and voila....it happened again, although this time I was ok.  Anyone have this kind of issue?  BTW can anyone recommend a good back up program that works with Jaws.
 
BTW I am using Windows 7 (up to date) and the latest and greatest version of Jaws.  From now on...I think I will delete one file at a time, rather than multiple file delete.
 
BTW I used the following to delete:
shift...down arrow and then delete
and I checked and highlighted ONLY the 4 files to delete...thanks.

George

moderated getting rid of inline objects in word

Hi,

Jaws 2019, windows 10 pro latest and word 2016.

 

I press CTRL shift o, there are 218 inline objects, I thought by selecting all with CTRL a and tapping delete would do the trick, but to no avail.

How can I quickly remove these?

Thank you,

Sincerely,

Are you using the Publix site or arranging for pickup or delivery using InstaCart?  I did a quick search on publix.com and was able to read the search results.  In order to use online shopping of any form, pickup or delivery, you end up using the Instacart site. I didn’t test that, though I understand it is accessible. I’m using JAWS 2019 and Chrome. The usual suggestions are, try with a different browser and a different screen reader and see if you get different results.

Have any of you tried using the new publix website? I can’t read the products, only the buttons. I go down the list and hear “button; button; add to list.” Is it my version of JAWS? Is it something I’m failing to do to read? They claim their new site is accessible, but when I phoned in to ask for help, they put me on hold for a very long time and I can’t believe their tec people will know what to do anyway, so I hung up. Frustrating!

 

Thanks for any feedback on this.

moderated Re: also requesting help/direction for purchaseRE: Need Dean's Help to Purchase Windows Keyboard Power User Guide

Dean Martineau <topdot@...>
 

I’d like to apologize to the list. I did not intend for people’s efforts to purchase Windows Keyboard Power User Guide to generate list traffic. I will not mention the book on the list in the foreseeable future.  However it gives me a chance to talk about an annoyance I’ve been having that I suppose I should report, and which is in no way limited to my page.

 

I see one reason why people could have problems. I have seen this in various places. Using semi-auto forms mode, on a page with a search box or other edit fiend at the top, if I arrow down through that field, when I exit the edit field, I am summarily dropped to the bottom of the page. This does not happen on the same pages when arrowing in and out of the edit field with NVDA. It probably would also not happen if using manual forms mode.

 

The solution, on this and other pages, is not to arrow, even though it seems to me that one ought to be able to do so.  The best thing to do on my page is to press E for edit fields, followed by B for button when you find the one you want.  Pressing tab also avoids the problem.

 

Thanks.

 

Dean

moderated Re: Creating forms

 

One can create perfectly accessible forms with Microsoft Word, but it seems virtually no one knows how to do it.

Here's a very simple one I created several years ago for someone working at a local school.  She needed to be able to fill out what they call "bus notes" that allowed a student to vary from the normal routine.

Every checkbox and form field is announced as you tab through the document that is created by using this form template as its basis.  Having it selected and hitting enter should open Word with "Document 1" having been created, which is an un-filled-out bus note.

Sample Bus Note Form Document Template (dotx)

There are many fillable PDF forms that are accessible, and others that are not because adequate labeling of the various checkboxes, edit boxes, radio buttons has not been done.  I don't have the software to create fillable PDF forms, though.

Hi

 

I am assuming you are referring to the Windows calculator.  If not, disregard my message.

 

Once the calculator is open and you want to enter your numbers, I usually use the numbers above the letters, but I would assume you could use the num pad.  Anyhow the Plus is the plus on the top row.  The minus is the dash on the top row.  Multiply is the * above the 8 and divide is the forward slash at the bottom row.  Delete clears the field.  Enter acts as the equals.  You can perform with multiple numbers like 1 + 3+8 etc.  anytime you want to know what is the field information use the JAWS read current line hot key.

 

This works for both Windows 7 and 10.

 

I have never tried to go in more depth than this, so there could be more.

 

Hope this helps.

Has anyone had any success with accessible form creation software. I was sent a form from the government. They claim that it is accessible to screen readers, but that is not actually factual. It is as accessible as Donald Trumps tax records. If anyone can help in this matter, it would be greatly appreciated.
