I found a keystroke jaws+alt+s where I can change the scheme to read
the colors -- I don't know why it did not work when I tried to do it
from the settings center, but it seems to work fairly well, only
problem is that Jaws goes silent sometimes for 15-20 seconds after I
hit jaws-to-pc hot key -- using Chrome.

Thanks for everyones suggestion, I hope this works.

I'll be surprised if the ReadSelectedText hotkey, JAWSKey+Shift+down arrow
identifies text that has been highlighted by a web developer or document
author. The only keystroke that might work is JAWSKey+5 (on the number row)
to identify color, and I'm not too optimistic about that either.

Try this keystroke:

Hi. OI am using Jaws 2020 latest update and I can't seem to read
hilighted text on web page. What I am trying to read are options with y/n
choices and one of them is hilighted. I tried to use a different sound

Jaws +f gives the font, but its the same, the colors are what is
different, and although the person says isomething was hilighted, that
is what was meant.

Hi again,

 

In that same edit box, you type rowtitle (one word, no spaces) if you only want to hear row titles. Type in columntitle (again, no spaces) if you only want to hear the column titles. If you ever get it messed up, hit Control F3 to bring you into the name manager where you can delete them and start over.

Hello.  I was talking about the program "Image for Windows" by terabyte unlimited, not the program built into windows itself.  In fact, both will allow you to restore a hard disk from an image, but the first has a lot more flexibility.  With the Terabyte Unlimited product you can do incremental and differential backups, as well as easily restore just one file if that is what you need to do, you can even view the contents of your saved image files.


The image program built into windows will allow you to restore a hard disk if and only if the drive is the same size, which makes it rather useless.  Besides that, it is likely going away in a future windows release.

Sameer,

           I also just found that someone mentioned the Podcast Audio Archive at Blind Geek Zone with regard to an audio tutorial on using Thunderbird.  I went there, and it dates from 2007, but I don't think a thing has changed as far as changing column order in ages.  It was mentioned as being discussed in part 1 of 2, but I did not listen and I do not know for certain if JAWS is used as the screen reader.  A search on Thunderbird once you've navigated to that page will find the two podcasts, in parts 1 and 2.

Sameer,

            Do you, by any chance, also use NVDA (since many use more than one screen reader)?  If so, consider installing the Mozilla Apps Enhancement add-on, and look at the documentation for it.  There are keystrokes that make rearranging column order in Thunderbird much easier.  Unless there's something new for JAWS, you still have to do it via emulated drag and drop, which is, to me, a PITA.

Mr. David:

 

Question for you regarding your “title” instructions:

Block quote:

3.      Type title in the edit box and press enter.

Now you will hear column titles (the months) as you left and right arrow through the table, and row titles (the types of bills) as you up and down arrow.

End block quote:

What do I do differently in order to get only the row or the column titles to read,

Instead of both?

Please advise as you like.

Hi,

 

This is much simpler to do using the Define Names command in Excel, rather than JAWS.

1.      Go to the cell that is the intersection of the column and row titles you want read to you when navigating inside the table. For example, if you list bill items you want to pay down column A, and months you will be paying across row 2, start in cell A2.

2.      Pres the applications key, up arrow ttwice to Define Names and press Enter.

3.      Type title in the edit box and press enter.

 

Now you will hear column titles (the months) as you left and right arrow through the table, and row titles (the types of bills) as you up and down arrow.

Dear List Members,


Kindly guide me regarding how to rearrange columns in Mozilla Thunderbird so that the sender's name appears first in the list of columns displayed in Inbox.


I am using JAWS 2020 on a Windows 10 machine with Thunderbird version 68.9.0


Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

David, if you used the Control Panel method to set this, check that it has carried over to Settings, Ease of Access, Display Pane, Show notifications for dropdown.

Also, it's worth checking there just to see if it might somehow gotten reset.

Thanks for this. Mine is set for 5 minutes which really should be long enough even for me so I am not quite sure what is going on.  Possibly I am touching other keys which is dismissing the notification prematurely. I will try really carefully  the next time I hear a notification.

Here are a few notes on how to keep the pop-up notifications on the screen longer:

From: David Bailes
just to add that you can also change the time the notification remains opens in the Settings app, and it's simpler:
1. Press Windows key + U. The settings app opens at the Ease of Access page, with the first category, Display, selected.
2. Tab to the Show notifications for combo box, and select the time that you want.

Hi, David. It is easier if you don't use Settings to get to the notifications length setting.
1. Open Control Panel.
2. Navigate to Ease of Access, and press ENTER.
3. Navigate to the "Make it easier to focus on Tasks link and press ENTER.
4. TAB about ten times to the "How long should Windows Notification Dialog Boxes Stay Open" dialog.
5. Arrow up and down in the combo box to find your desired length.
6. TAB to the OK button, and press ENTER.
7. Now Windows Notifications will stay open longer.

Hi again, David. I found where the Notification Length setting is when using Settings to open Ease of Access.
1. Open Settings.
2. Open Ease of Access.
3. Open Vision.
4. Open Display.
5. TAB nine times to Notifications, and select the length of displaying the notification.

I don’t know why but this Windows keystroke has never worked for me personally. It may be that there is a time limited opportunity to press the command and by the time I have got my fingers in place the notification has gone.

The only keystroke which sometimes works for me is Windows A which takes me to the Action centre where some notifications will live.

However even this is not consistent as sometimes notification windows like the annoying DropBox messages will not be located even with this method. Thankfully DropBox seem to have finally got the  message I don’t want warnings of any kind from them.

Hi Steve,

 

Perhaps you could try this:

 

When you hear the Windows 10 notifications jingle, press the <windows+shift+v> keystroke in order to focus to the notification and then, press <space> or <enter> key to interact with it.

 

Please note that the <windows+shift+v> key combination is not a screen reader-specific keystroke. In other words, it is always available in Windows 10.

 

HTH, have a nice week-end. Chris D
