Hi!

 

I am using JAWS 2019 under Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.  The FS Reader 3 program constantly crashes on me, and is really sluggish.  Is there a more stable Daisy reader I could use?  Or, is there a way to make FS Reader 3 more stable?  BTW, the Daisy books I get from Bookshare are “text only;” although for some strange reason they seem to come through with images.

 

Thanks,

Hi group,

 

I'm using the latest Jaws with Outlook 365. I am making my way through CathyAnne Mertha's immersion textbook but still have a number of problems I'm hoping to get some help with:

 

Problems with Jaws

-inconsistent in reporting message status when arrowing through message list

-Seems to hang randomly, but occurs most after executing reply command

 

What I've tried

-made sure Outlook is maximized

-Updated to latest Jaws

-Close and reopen outlook 365

-Restart PC

-Double checked   Jaws settings

 

Thanks,

Norma

moderated Re: web page to try in Chrome

 

I  do not know what a screen reader normally encounters when they hit an "article as slide show" style article, but that's what the referenced article is.

Also, when I go in to the ZDNet site by activating that link the dialog box that pops up fro me, under Brave (also Chromium based), is asking whether I want to allow ZDNet to show notifications, with Block and Allow as the two options.

Although I can find several ways to move from item to item, then getting to the actual text you want to read is messy when you arrive on any one of them, as focus is still on the control that allows you to move.  This page is ill-designed from a number of aspects and accessibility is but one of them.

I just used chrome and it worked fine accessing the Amazon.ca website.  It did recommend using the screen reader user friendly website, however, it still recognized that it was me signing in and not someone who did not have an account. For the longest time I was using I E because it seemed to be easier creating shortcuts for websites on my desktop then putting them into a folder.  Using Firefox or Google seemed to be to convoluted and the long way around the bush.  Sometimes even that route did not work. I tried switching to chrome again a couple of days ago and so far, all seems to be good. I can access Facebook and Amazon with no problems.  One of the problems I had before was entering my password, Amazon rejected it claiming it was not the correct one even though it was.

And yesterday, I had trouble accessing Amazon using JAWS 2019 with Chrome.  Every time I attempted to access the Amazon home page, Chrome would crash.  I was finally able to access it using Firefox 68.  But whenever I visit the Amazon site, something else seems to have been changed.  They just don't know when to stop tinkering around with the site, which probably explains all the problems that are being reported.

This is not directly related, but yesterday I could not check a necessary radio button on an Amazon order with JAWS.  I could do it with NVdA. This was using Chrome. I didn’t try Firefox to see if that improved things. In short, we need to be able to use at least two screen readers and two browsers these days.

 

You can also use Aira with its JAWS discount. If there is a feature you cannot access using JAWS, an Aira agent can help, even to the extent of remoting into your system with Team Viewer and clicking on necessary controls.

Dear List,

 

I am using JAWS 2018 (professional) and Windows 10. I tried placing an order that was to be delivered to my daughter in San Diego, which I have done in the past. This time, however, I was not given the list of addresses to select from—only mine—and I couldn’t find any way to change the delivery from my house. Has anyone else had this problem? Is JAWS no longer seeing the place where you can select other address? I tried using IE and then Firefox.

I telephoned the Accessibility number but the very nice agent has no idea what’s happening. She can see my list of other addresses and has no idea why I couldn’t choose one.

 

Help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

 

Shirley

Just as an aside, it's also very often about whether you want to allow the site to be able to give you notifications or not.   And given the number of times, on multiple venues, I've had people complaining about "getting notifications I never asked for" (almost always traceable to a quick and thought-free "Yes" activation) it's important to actually read these pop-up dialogs and respond correctly based on what's being asked.

The Allow and Block referred to whether  you allowed this website to use your location. If this pops up in future and you want to make sure what it says you can switch to the touch cursor and read this.

I was also able to read this both in Chrome and Edge Dev.

I was able to bring up the page and read the article.  I am using JAWS 2019.  The one thing that happened is there was a popup asking me if I wanted to allow something.  I lost the something, but was able to find the “allow” button.  With that, the page loaded just fine.

I tried to read this article in Chrome using both JAWS and NVDA, to no avail. None of the article text is visible. Then I tried in Firefox with JAWS and could read it. I’ve made various alterations to Chrome, adding extensions and the like, and I would like to make sure that I have not somehow rendered the browser less useful, though I don’t quite see how I could have done so. I’d like to know if anybody else can read this in Chrome:
