I am sure that this was related to the “tell me about upcoming updates message”, which I have now switched off and Jaws is working properly again.

After I think an update has occurred, I always make sure the folder pane is set to normal, and the reading pane is set to off in Outlook.

 

I’m told that the “to do” bar should also be turned off, but haven’t figured out how to do that yet.

Hi,

  After a Windows update or if using Office 365, update some Outlook features can be turned back on and give JAWS some problems.  I have many Outlook features such as “reading pane” turned off.  On occasion after an update this gets restored and I must turn off. 

Just an idea on what might have occurred.

Subject: Problem With Jaws Sluggishness With Outlook E-mail

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I am not sure if this is related to the recent Windows update I just experienced, but I am now finding that Jaws is rather sluggish when arrowing through an e-mail ffolder listview in Outlook.

 

It used to be that when arrowing through the list, I got an instant response from Jaws as I arrowed up or down through the list view.

 

Now, there appears to be a ½ to 1 second delay when working through the list view.

 

I also notice the sluggishness when tabbing through the fields in an individual message.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts as to what might have changed, and how I can correct the issue?

 

I’m using Outlook 2016, Windows 10 version 1809, and the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

Thanks as always.

This morning, when I experienced the issue, I was running my computer on the laptop battery.

 

At the time, the battery was about half charged.

 

As soon as I plugged the computer back into the power supply, things returned to normal.

 

I wouldn’t think running the computer on the battery would make a difference, but, in this instance, it seems to be the case.

Jaws with turbotax and quicken

I am ready to do my 2018 taxes and want to use the cd of Turbotax 2018 Home and Business.  Is it workable with Jaws 2019?  I’d like to know this before buying the program.  Also I have heard that quicken and quick books have not been accessible with Jaws in the past...is this still true?   Finally can anyone on the list tell about a simple program that works with Jaws to sort expenses for tax time.  I used to use Home Management software, but that company no longer offers product.  I could sort expenses into categories like
1.  real estate taxes
2.  electric
3.  Professional expenses
 
etc.  Thanks for any help!

Yes, if you change the word "uploaded" to inserted.  You can add alt text not only to images, but to all sorts of objects, and not only on web pages, but in MS-Word documents, PDF documents, and the list goes on and on.

The exact method for getting it there varies based on the program being used to create the content, but there tends to be similarity in that alt text is always a property of the thing being annotated, and that generally means you're going to find alt text somewhere in a properties dialog.

Re: Adding alt tags to images?

Richard Turner
 

Ann,

If you are interested in the html code for adding alternate text to a graphic image, here is one example without specifying height and width.  If you needed to do that you would add that in before the greater than sign at the end.  Be sure and read the punctuation.

 

<img src="eagle2.jpg" alt="an eagle in flight>

 

If you were adding height and width before the greater than sign you would do something like width=”100” height=”100”

Or whatever would match the image.

Of course, Wordpress probably puts all that in for you, but I don’t use it.

 

HTH,

Richard

I guess I should have said alt text instead of alt tags, if that makes a difference.

And, am I guessing right that the ability to add all tags or text to any images is totally dependent on where and how it is being uploaded?

Hi,

The Alt tags I am talking about are what is seen by any decent modern screen reader when browsing images ont he web. I have an image to upload, and I'd like to add an alt tag to it since it only currently has a Jaws label, wich is nice for my local Jaws and computer use, but probably won't help anyone else much on the web.

So, would Word be the easiest way for me to add an Alt tag to this image that all oculd read before uploading it? Or would some other tool be better?

Thanks for any advice,

            If you're referring to something after the fact then it becomes significantly more complicated and murkier.

Hi,

I guess I should have said alt text instead of alt tags, if that makes a difference.

And, am I guessing right that the ability to add all tags or text to any images is totally dependent on where and how it is being uploaded?

Thanks,

Hi,

The Alt tags I am talking about are what is seen by any decent modern screen reader when browsing images ont he web. I have an image to upload, and I'd like to add an alt tag to it since it only currently has a Jaws label, wich is nice for my local Jaws and computer use, but probably won't help anyone else much on the web.

So, would Word be the easiest way for me to add an Alt tag to this image that all oculd read before uploading it? Or would some other tool be better?

Thanks for any advice,
~Ann

            Are you asking about adding Alt Text for an image using Microsoft Word?  If so, it's a cinch, as it is under most HTML editors, too.

            If you're referring to something after the fact then it becomes significantly more complicated and murkier.

Re: Accessibility of Microsoft Forms

Okay, I thought you were referring to the forms that they ask you to fill out after a disability help desk session. Sorry about that.

Hello,

Microsoft Forms is a web app that I think is part of an office 365 subscription. I’m not sure if there is a downloadable desktop version or not. I’m not sure whether or not you can utilize Microsoft Forms if you don’t have an office 365 subscription, but perhaps just have a Microsoft account. In any case, you can create surveys, quizzes, etc. I’m guessing it is similar in purpose to Google forms.

Thank you,

Heather

I am not certain of what is being referred to either   Word forms can be made 100% accessible.

Hello,

I’m wondering if anyone has used Microsoft Forms with JAWS. Is it accessible with JAWS? I think I am mostly wondering about your experience filling out Microsoft Forms created by others. I have never used Microsoft Forms myself. I had never heard of Microsoft Forms before last week.

Thank you for any information you can share,

Heather

Re: Creating Accessible Controls

 

The exact technique depends on whether the control is a legacy control or an ActiveX control.   I strongly favor legacy controls because they're easier to deal with (at least they are to me) but not all controls are available as legacy controls, e.g., buttons.

I also generally create forms that are heavily text box and checkbox centric, and the accessibility is in the status bar help text, which is what the screen reader reads when it lands on the field.  I also copy same over to the Help Key text, too, so in case someone gets distracted or needs to hear it again they can just hit F1.

Creating Accessible Controls

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I've discovered there's a way to create controls like buttons, sliders, and radio buttons using Microsoft Word. However, I'm not sure how I would make them accessible to screenreaders like JAWS. They seem to be spoken, for example, as "forms.textbox. 11.50 inches wide by 0.38 inches high. 2.65 inches wide by 0.66 inches high"
