Chrome has not abandoned RSS.?? But unlike IE, Chrome does not have the RSS feed reader built in.?? You have to install an extension to read RSS feeds, and it may not be accessible.?? Firefox has never had an accessible RSS feed reader,and is such a screwed up mess that it is best avoided unless you absolutely need it to access a particular web site.??

What's new:

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1907.31 (August 2019)

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the June
2019 update and the August 2019 update.
list of 14 items
. This update fixes an issue encountered by some users where JAWS was not
reading as expected in the Windows 10 Start menu. If you are experiencing
this problem, open JAWS Settings Center, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the
Default File, type "start" into the search edit box, and then toggle the
control called:
"Start menu: Access-Out-of-Process" so that it is checked.
. In response to customer feedback, JAWS sounds such as when INSERT+SPACEBAR
is pressed to enter Layered Keys mode are no longer muted when Speech On
Demand is active.
. Addressed an issue where the Text Analyzer keystrokes were not being found
when using the JAWS Commands Search feature (INSERT+SPACEBAR, J).
. When creating meeting requests using the Outlook calendar, resolved an
issue where new attendee information was not being reliably indicated in
either speech or braille.
. Resolved a reported issue where the keystrokes to read message headers in
Outlook, ALT+1 through 4 on the number row, were not working in Windows 7.
. Resolved an issue where returning to an open Outlook email after exiting a
Word Document would result in your cursor landing at the top of the email
rather than the previous location where you were reading.
. Resolved an issue in Microsoft Office where JAWS was not reporting if an
endnote or footnote had been inserted with speech even though Braille was
correctly identifying the information.
. Addressed an issue in Word 2016 reported by SSA where JAWS would repeat
the last line of the document after completing a Say All (INSERT+DOWN
ARROW).
. Addressed a reported issue where the spelling buzzer to indicate a
misspelled word was still being heard even when the "Detect spelling while
typing"
option in setting Center was disabled.
. In Microsoft Teams, resolved an issue where JAWS was speaking incoming
message and call notifications multiple times.
. When navigating by character in secure password fields in Chrome and
Firefox, resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "star" multiple times for
each character.
. Addressed a reported issue in Chrome where typing in contracted Braille
was not working as expected.
. Resolved a customer reported issue with SQL Server Management Studio where
JAWS was not properly navigating and reading a results Data grid.
. Resolved an issue reported by international Braille users where incorrect
Unicode characters were being entered using computer braille under certain
circumstances.

Subject: Reading searchable pdfs with jaws

Hi all,

I use the latest version of jaws 2019 and version no. 2019.012.20035
of acrobat reader dc. I face 2 issues while using jaws: (a) - in many
pdfs, the content appears like a large wall of text in Acrobat Reader
and cannot be perused in a para-wise form. You can only peruse it line
by line or through say all, both of which are inconvenient. (B): jaws
sometimes loses focus, especially when transitioning from one page to the other.

Have others faced any of these issues and found viable ways to read
pdf documents *as such* in an accessible way. Note: I am cognizant of
solutions like converting them into word, using the OCR feature and
viewing them as html documents. What I would like the answer to,
however, is the narrow question of whether there exists an accessible
way to navigate searchable pdf documents in para-wise form without
adopting these roundabout solutions.

Best,
Rahul

If the pdf is created using a scanned image you wont be able to read it. You can try to OCR it but that is hit or miss at best. This is a known issue with pdf's and nothing can be done about it.

Hi, Marvin.

1. Open Adobe Reader.

2. Press ALT plus K for Preferences.

3. Arrow down to Security (Enhanced, (not just Security)

4. TAB to Enable Protected Mode at startup, and make sure it is unchecked.

5. Answer “Yes” to the prompt which warns you that, Disabling Protected Mode requires you to restart Adobe Reader.

6. TAB to, Enable Enhanced Security, and make sure this is also unchecked.

7. TAB to the OK button, and press it.

8. Restart Adobe Reader.

 

Now you should be able to see the content of PDF files in Adobe Reader.

Hello Group,

 

All of my itunes library is stored on my PC, with many playlists from my library available to access on my I-phone.

My issue is that I have inadvertently unchecked all the songs in my Itunes library. I have tried using control and left mouse button to check a specific song, thinking that this action might place all other songs in a checked status. However, this hasn’t worked.

I assume that using  JAWS, there is a command within Itunes or a process that allows me to check all the songs in my library.

 

I would appreciate any and all assistance.

Thank you Ben for your suggestion, specific to correcting the issue that I presented in my post.

Apple Accessibility did not have a solution to resolve the issue, at least, in reference to the two tech reps that I spoke with.

However, Microsoft disability support did identify a fix. As suggested by Ben, select all songs with Control-A. Then open the applications menu and arrow down to check.

Dear friend, the matter of fact is that I’m an extremely poor visually challenged person looking after my mom, my wife and my two children with very low income.

Ten USD means for me is RS1500 per month which I cannot afford because I’m earning just RS48000 per month which is very low income over here in Pakistan.

I have to pay RS10000 for house rent, RS10000 for my utilities, RS10000 per month for my children education related things.

In this regard please let me know how can I afford such a huge amount for that captcha solver?

I therefore would like to request you to please exempt me from your planne.

I sincerely hope that my request will be considered with humanitarian manner.

Hi Marvin,

 

There is a security setting in Adobe Reader that you need to disable. Go to Adobe preferences by pressing CTRL + K. In the list of preferences, look for "Security, (enhanced)". Tab to where it says "enable enhanced Security" and uncheck it. You can use first letter navigation in this list, so press "S" till you get to "Security (Enhanced). Try that and if it doesn't work, there is also a setting to "Enable protected mode at startup" in the Security (Enhanced) preference. Try unchecking this as well. I can't recall if both settings need to be unchecked , and I am on my Mac at the moment so can't check.

 

Hope this helps

I respectfully disagree with you because I’m using latest version of JAWS, but the workaround was necessary for me.

And just to add to this, in the latest version of Jaws this is no longer necessary, but if you use Jaws 2018 or an earlier version of Jaws 2019 you may have to do this.

Hi, Marvin.

1. Open Adobe Reader.

2. Press ALT plus K for Preferences.

3. Arrow down to Security (Enhanced, (not just Security)

4. TAB to Enable Protected Mode at startup, and make sure it is unchecked.

5. Answer “Yes” to the prompt which warns you that, Disabling Protected Mode requires you to restart Adobe Reader.

6. TAB to, Enable Enhanced Security, and make sure this is also unchecked.

7. TAB to the OK button, and press it.

8. Restart Adobe Reader.

 

Now you should be able to see the content of PDF files in Adobe Reader.

I thought I would try adobe acrobat reader dc, latest version. My adobe acrobat pro English is a few years old, version 5.5., but when I try to load a pdf, and then select that and load, it goes into like a web based or cloud, and jaws just sees it as blank. If I try to do a insert o, d for document, says ocr failed. So not sure why. Why is that, and not reading it that great and do have the google chrome extension. Maybe ray, can help. This is weird.

Anyone had this issue with adobe acrobat reader dc, current free version and got it from the official adobe site.

Marvin.

moderated Re: Regarding captcha solver

 

How often does one really need a captcha solver these days?

I use the internet a lot and often I go month without coming across one or at least one which doesn’t have an accessible option.

And when I do why not use Be My Eyes and get a sighted helper who can read it for you.

Sieghard

Dear friend, the matter of fact is that I’m an extremely poor visually challenged person looking after my mom, my wife and my two children with very low income.

Ten USD means for me is RS1500 per month which I cannot afford because I’m earning just RS48000 per month which is very low income over here in Pakistan.

I have to pay RS10000 for house rent, RS10000 for my utilities, RS10000 per month for my children education related things.

In this regard please let me know how can I afford such a huge amount for that captcha solver?

I therefore would like to request you to please exempt me from your planne.

I sincerely hope that my request will be considered with humanitarian manner.

Hi! 

 

Sending this since many people have emailed me regarding captcha solver, sorry to say, but right now because of an increasing amount of people who exploit it, I have to charge 10 USD dollars/month to sustain the service and get rid of the people who use it for wrong purposes.

 

Sad it had to get to this point, if you're still interested please reply and I'll set up everything, payments go through a reputable provider like PayPal or similar. Email is: oliver.edholm@...

Oliver

Hi Justin, 

 

I don't know if this will work, but you could try control and a. That should perform the select all, and all of your songs should be checked. 

 

Good luck.

Hello Group,

 

All of my itunes library is stored on my PC, with many playlists from my library available to access on my I-phone.

My issue is that I have inadvertently unchecked all the songs in my Itunes library. I have tried using control and left mouse button to check a specific song, thinking that this action might place all other songs in a checked status. However, this hasn’t worked.

I assume that using  JAWS, there is a command within Itunes or a process that allows me to check all the songs in my library.

 

I would appreciate any and all assistance.

 

Best,  Justin

As far as I know, chrome does not do rss.  I think that is part of the reason Firefox stopped as well.  I just use Thunderbird for rss.

To be perfectly honest, the only RSS reader I have ever found to be fully accessible with JAWS is the one built into IE 11.?? I use Chrome as my default browser, but now useIE mostly as an RSS feed reader.
