I don’t know why they didn’t map Ctrl+F to JAWS Find as they have done with the browsers, but they have not done so.  Hence, to do a very effective JAWS Find in a PDF document while running Acrobat Reader, use Insert+Ctrl+F, Insert+F3 to Find Next.

Subject: Searching in a PDF file

 

Hello, I’m using windows10  and Jaws2019 most recent version. I’m unable to perform a search in a PDF file. I press control f, type in some text and press enter. The only way I can get out of the search is press escape. Should I do this a different way? I tried to convert the PDF into a word doc and I couldn’t get it to work. I then highlighted the entire PDF, copied and then pasted it into a word doc. This messed it really bad. Any thoughts of what I can do

You can save it as TXT and do control + F in notepad.
Also, did you try insert + control + F?
That might work in a PDF.

moderated JAWS 2020 beta 3 and Twitter

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

Hi all. I'm trying to use Twitter on my Windows 10 desktop running the JAWS 2020 beta. There is a long list of keyboard shortcuts, but invoking them does nothing. Not only that, the key presses are not even spoken, even though I have keyboard character reading turned on. These keyboard shortcuts are not very practical anyway; is there an alternate Twitter site that doesn't use these shortcuts, or can they be made to work better in JAWS?
Many thanks,

Hi Mattias,
 
It's in the J2020 demo and it's explained below.
 
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.

moderated Re: creating a desktop shortcut of a site in Firefox using latest jaws and win10

 

Yes, and you can similarly create a shortcut if you are already in a folder.

The same steps apply, make sure no file or subfolder is selected, if one is selected press Control + Spacebar to deselect it, then bring up the application menu, select “New” or use “w” and the rest is the same as on the desktop.

Thanks, Sieghard.  I was using I E for years because it was easy to paste a shortcut to radio stations and the like that I like to listen too. Then put them into folders.  Now, with your suggestion I can use different browsers.  Some stations when using the listen live link, do not support I E anymore.  Thus I’ve had to use Edge for that sight. My biggest complaint for using Fire fox or Chrome is the inability to be able to paste short cuts to my favorite websites or ones that I want to remember. With your help, I can just effortlessly create a shortcut to the preferred website or link, no muss no fuss.

A way to quickly create a desktop shortcut is nice, but it’s also not difficult to create one manually.

Just go to the address bar, copy the URL, minimize to the desktop and make sure nothing has focus, then press the application key or Shift + F10, arrow to “New” or press “w”, expand with the right arrow and arrow down to “Shortcut” or press “s”.

Now paste in your URL, press enter, type the name you want the shortcut to have and press enter and you are done.

If you use Chrome you can go to the menu, More Tools and select “Create Shortcut”.

Sieghard

There used to be a Firefox plugin called “Deskcut” that worked really nicely.  However, it seems it is no longer available.  If someone knows where to get it, please reply!  With Deskcut, a context menu choice was added to the applications key (shift+F10) “save link” that put a shortcut onto your desktop.  It worked like the IE “send shortcut to desktop” command.  I have not found a similar Firefox substitute.  If anyone knows of a good substitute, please reply!

The "Method One" documented here, https://www.intowindows.com/how-to-create-website-shortcut-on-desktop-in-windows-10/, will work to create a desktop shortcut that will open under your default web browser in Windows 10.

If Firefox is not your default web browser, and you want to use it as an exception case, things get slightly more complicated.  For the moment I will presume it is your default.
