alt text

Rick Mladek
 

Hi all,

I am sorry if I've missed any recent talk regarding alt text but I am needing to add some alt text to a photo within a 2010 Word document. Using Word 2010, can anyone explain the short-cuts using Jaws latest version and Windows 10? Reading information on the web, it says to right click on the image and I've tried this. It says to then click on the format picture, I cannot find the format picture button. It then says to add the alt text. Is there any way to get this done more easy?

Thank you for putting up with me,

Rick

The only way to correct this is to not update, or to put your choice of hotkey back into the shortcut for JAWS.

JAWS 2019.1903.47 Update Download Link + What's New

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
Okay, another build update, JAWS 2019.1903.47, has been released.  The download link and what's new are below.
 
32 & 64 Bit:
 
 

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1903.47 (March 2019)
This update to the March 2019 release resolves a reported issue where JAWS could restart automatically when switching focus away from Chrome. This occurred
in Chrome builds earlier than build 74.
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1903.9 (March 2019)
 
The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the January 2019 update and the March 2019 update.
 
Picture Smart for Describing Images with JAWS and Fusion
 
Picture Smart allows you to choose a photo and submit it to be analyzed. A description of the image is then displayed in the JAWS Results Viewer window.
Descriptions might include details such as the number of people in the photo, recognizable landmarks, landscape details such as "outdoors with a blue sky
and green grass," if there are vehicles such as automobiles or trains, and more. If there is text in the picture, it will OCR the text and provide that
as well.
 
To use Picture Smart, press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by P. Once the Picture Smart layer is active, the following keystrokes are available:
 
list of 5 items
• A - Open the Picture Smart dialog box where you can acquire an image from a flatbed scanner or the Freedom Scientific PEARL camera.
• F - Describes the currently selected image in File Explorer. Supported images include BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIF, or PNG.
• C - Describes an image associated with the current control. For instance, a graphic on a web page or in an email message.
• B - Describes the contents of the Windows Clipboard if it contains an image.
• QUESTION MARK - Displays help for the Picture Smart layer.
list end
 
JAWS now also creates a new PictureSmart folder which is located in your user documents folder under My Pictures. If a single image is saved to this folder,
JAWS will automatically submit it for analyzing and display the resulting description.
 
To use Picture Smart, the "submit annonymous usage data" option must be enabled in Settings Center. This sends encrypted information to Freedom Scientific.
The images from Picture Smart are then submitted to the various services (such as Microsoft and Google) which analyze the images and returns the descriptions
back to us. These descriptions are then displayed in the Results Viewer. If you attempt to use Picture Smart and this setting is off, a message displays
prompting you to turn it on.
 
Note: Picture Smart is currently only available while in the English Language UI of JAWS and Fusion as the services that perform the image analysis do
not currently support international languages for descriptions of images. For users of localized versions of JAWS running in versions of Windows other
than English, you must switch the JAWS UI language to English to try out this feature. We plan to make Picture Smart available in more languages in the
future as these services continue to expand to include additional languages.
 
Improvements With Selecting and Copying Content in Chrome
 
After working closely with developers at Google, we are pleased to announce that starting with Chrome version 74.0.3717, an update scheduled for release
by April 2019, selecting and copying text using the keyboard will now include the HTML markup as we have done in Internet Explorer for years. The functionality
is included for all users of JAWS and Fusion 2019, providing the ability to copy live links, lists of items, and even tables from the Chrome browser and
pasting them into Email messages or Documents without losing the formatting.
 
Virtual Cursor Support in PowerPoint Presentations
 
When you press F5 to start a slide show in PowerPoint, you can now use the Virtual Cursor to navigate slide content just like a web page. This enables
you to do the following:
 
list of 6 items
• Navigate the slide show and read all content, including text, labeled graphics, and other objects.
• Use TAB or SHIFT+TAB to move to links and activate them with ENTER or SPACEBAR.
• Use Navigation Quick Keys to move to various object types such as headings.
• Use the JAWS table reading keystrokes (ALT+CTRL+ARROW keys) to navigate in tables.
• Obtain lists of objects including links, headings, tables, graphics from a running slide-show and be able to activate or move to the desired item in
the list.
• Use the INSERT+F or INSERT+5 (on the number row) commands to check the format and color info of text on a slide.
list end
 
Filter Consecutive Duplicate Links Now Off in Chrome and Firefox
 
Frequently, web page authors will create a graphical link and a text link that appears to look the same. Visually, sighted users think of this as one link,
but it is really two different links that point to the same location on the web. For screen reader users, you end up having to read the link twice with
no real benefit. For years, to help stream line the reading experience, JAWS has offered a feature in Settings Center called "Filter Consecutive Duplicate
Links," which is enabled by default. As a result, when reading web pages with the Virtual Cursor and you encounter consecutive links that point to the
same location, one graphical and one text, only the text link is announced.
 
Beginning wit the March 2019 update, this setting is now off by default in Chrome and Firefox due to visual tracking issues when using TAB or SHIFT+TAB
on a page. The visual PC focus that moves as you TAB can get out of sync with the virtual focus that is following, especially in Chrome and Firefox. This
could cause confusion for anyone looking at the screen or using JAWS in conjunction with screen magnification software like Fusion. For users of Chrome
or Firefox who are willing to accept the possible confusion because of the visual aspect described above, you can always open Settings Center (INSERT+6
on the number row), search for "Duplicate", and  reenable this feature. This setting is still on by default in Internet Explorer.
 
Other Changes
list of 12 items
• In Speech On Demand (INSERT+SPACEBAR, S), all sounds played by JAWS are now muted. This includes the sound you hear when pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR to
enter Layered Keys mode as well as the sound heard when completing an address in Outlook.
• The options for configuring spelling and grammar error detection have been expanded and are now available in Settings Center. You can find these settings
under the new Proofing group in Text Processing.
• JAWS spelling error detection now works when editing slides in PowerPoint.
• Resolved a reported issue with Braille where the display was blank when first starting a PowerPoint slide show.
• Resolved a reported issue where Track Changes was not working correctly with JAWS in the retail version of Word 2016.
• In Word, addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not announcing the word count in a document when pressing the Word keyboard shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+G.
• Addressed a reported issue where JAWS would close unexpectedly when sscanning a document with Adobe DC Pro.
• It is no longer necessary to restart JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion when installing or removing voices through the Add/Remove Voices utility. Voices are immediately
available when installed and no longer displayed when removed.
• A description of the layered keystroke to copy the speech history to the clipboard (INSERT+SPACEBAR, CTRL+H) has been added to the layered help (INSERT+SPACEBAR,
QUESTION MARK).
• Addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not saying "Not Selected" when using CTRL+SPACEBAR to unselect an item.
• JAWS now reads subtitle information for items in Windows Settings (WINDOWS Key+I). This information is automatically spoken for the Beginner verbosity
level and is off by default for the Intermediate and Advanced verbosity levels.
• The "Use Accessibility Driver for Screen Capture" option in Settings Center is now unavailable when running as Fusion.
list end

 
Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.

Impossible. I have tried the latest version of Chrome with JAWS 16 and
it constantly crashes every time I try to access search results using
Google. According to the moderator of the other JAWS list, Chrome will
not work with any version of JAWS below JAWS 18. So if anyone else on
this list has been able to use the latest version of Chrome successfully
with JAWS 17 or earlier, please let us know.

Hi Orlando,

Personally, I bring up the bookmarks in Chrome by holding Alt and then
pressing F, then release both keys and press B. I find that the
quickest method for me, plus it feels most like IE’s old favourites
bookmarks which I like. But when you are in this bookmark menu you can
right click a bookmark , select cut then go to the folder you want it in
and paste there. I find this helpful if I’ve just added a quick bookmark
without assigning it a folder since its at the bottom of my bookmarks
list and I can just then cut and paste it into the folder I want it if I
decide to keep the bookmark and want to file/organise it away in some
folder in my bookmarks list.

Orlando,

When you create a bookmark with CTRL+D, the second item in the dialog is
"Folder" where you can choose the folder in which you wish to place it
from among your existing folders or create a new one.

In Bookmarks Manager you can either use emulated drag and drop
or, after bringing up the context menu for an existing bookmark, copying
its URL, deleting it where it is, navigating to where you want it. then
shift+TAB back to the Organize Bookmarks Menu button and create it anew
using the URL you copied.

Every web browser gives you the ability to create bookmarks
where you want them in a folder hierarchy and move them around at will.

when you reinstall Firefox, I believe you can disconnect from the
Internet, and set 52 to never install updates. reason being, if Firefox
has online access to the Internet while 52 is being reinstalled, 52 will
automatically be updated to the latest version after the installation
has completed. by disconnecting, 52 has no chance to automatically
update before setting it's setting to never update. but be aware that
you are significantly thwarting Firefox's security while using it.

Internet, and set 52 to never install updates. reason being, if Firefox
has online access to the Internet while 52 is being reinstalled, 52 will
automatically be updated to the latest version after the installation
has completed. by disconnecting, 52 has no chance to automatically
update before setting it's setting to never update. but be aware that
you are significantly thwarting Firefox's security while using it.

Hi Orlando,

Personally, I bring up the bookmarks in Chrome  by holding Alt and then
pressing F, then release  both keys and press B.  I find that the
quickest method for me, plus it feels most like IE’s  old favourites
bookmarks which I like. But when you are in this bookmark menu you can
right click a bookmark , select cut then go to the folder you want it in
and paste there. I find this helpful if I’ve just added a quick bookmark
without assigning it a folder since its at the bottom of my bookmarks
list and I can just then cut and paste it into the folder I want it if I
decide to keep the bookmark and want to file/organise it away in  some
folder in my bookmarks list.

Orlando,

When you create a bookmark with CTRL+D, the second item in the dialog is
"Folder" where you can choose the folder in which you wish to place it
from among your existing folders or create a new one.

           In Bookmarks Manager you can either use emulated drag and drop
or, after bringing up the context menu for an existing bookmark, copying
its URL, deleting it where it is, navigating to where you want it. then
shift+TAB back to the Organize Bookmarks Menu button and create it anew
using the URL you copied.

           Every web browser gives you the ability to create bookmarks
where you want them in a folder hierarchy and move them around at will.

If that's happening then something else is wrong with your Windows installation.   The default browser should not ever change unless you change it (and under Windows 10, at least up through version 1809, it wouldn't even change if you used the "set this as the default browser" choice when installing a new web browser - you had to do it under Default apps - though that decision "takes" in earlier Windows).

Andrew,

Well, if your executable for installing Firefox is a file on your hard
drive, then try installing while you have your connection to the internet
turned off. Then launch Firefox, and wander around the options until you
find the checkbox to update automatically. Then when you're satisfied,
reconnect to the internet.

Impossible.  I have tried the latest version of Chrome with JAWS 16 and it constantly crashes every time I try to access search results using Google.  According to the moderator of the other JAWS list, Chrome will not work with any version of JAWS below JAWS 18. So if anyone else on this list has been able to use the latest version of Chrome successfully with JAWS 17 or earlier, please let us know.

I don't think so.  Chrome does not work with JAWS 13.  It only works
with JAWS 18 or higher.
