Hi,

I used to do a lot of .NET development but now it's mostly C++.

Hi,

I've found VS 2017 to be great in accessibility, mostly because it implements UIA rather than whatever Microsoft was using when VS 2005 was around.

 

I'd argue that 2017 is the most accessible version yet. I use it at work every day and it works really well with both JAWS and NVDA.

 

Why does updating Windows "break" things for you? I'd get that sorted out if I were you; people really shouldn't be using VS 2005 nowadays. Technology is so different from what it used to be and I strongly recommend staying current, especially with development tools. Things like the VC++ runtimes are updated with each new version of Visual Studio as well, and many of these updates patch security holes that you really don't want floating around.

Hi,

Ok, if cost is prohibitive for you, I would suggest switching to NVDA, installing Windows 10 and using VS 2017. Both NVDA and JAWS work really well with VS 2017 (though NVDA's performance is slower compared to JAWS' performance in this program.)


If you're in the US, you can get on the JAWS Home Annual program; alternatively, you can get JAWS Home at no cost to you if you're a university student and your university has a site-wide license for JAWS.


Try to find a way to upgrade to Windows 10 and install the latest VS (which is free by the way) before deciding definitely that you MUST stick to VS 2005.


Getting VS 2005 will be difficult since it has been dropped by Microsoft. Unless you have an MSDN account, you'll have to get a copy from someone who still has a copy of it and hope that they haven't injected malicious code into the program, and that they give you a registration key if it's not VS Express.

JAWS 2018 at the clients will still run and find a license when your server is upgraded to 2019. If the clients want JAWS 2019 they have to install 2019. It'll not happen automatically.

The latest versions are pretty accessible, I know about 2017 community
edition and anything later than that should work reasonably well with
Jaws, although not perfectly. It may update some libraries, but just
create a restore point before installing and you should be fine.

Not a terrible thing, but annoying. Since I don’t know how it got this way, I can’t figure out how to put it back the way I’m used to it. Can someone please help me?

 

FYI, I’m using JAWS 2018 and Windows 10.

 

Thanks for any help.

Hi again Sieghard,

 

I was also going to jump back on the list and ask how to rename a folder that I mistakenly named wrong—but the steps you gave me helps me find that answer, too. Thank you so much.

Cheerfully,

 

Shirley Tracy

Hi shirley,

 

Open any file explorer window and make sure nothing is selected, it shouldn’t be when  you first open a folder unless you move the cursor. If a folder or file is selected you can press Control + Spacebar to unselect it.

Now press Shift + F10, arrow to Sort by, expand the sub menu with the right arrow and then arrow down and make sure “ascending” is selected, simply press enter once you get to it and that should fix it.

Hi listers,

 

In my great wisdom, I managed to invert the listed files. Not sure how I did it, but those beginning with the letter Z are on top and the files beginning with the letter A are at the bottom. Not a terrible thing, but annoying. Since I don’t know how it got this way, I can’t figure out how to put it back the way I’m used to it. Can someone please help me?
