I was on the losing side of a philosophical battle royal about this very thing with regard to NVDA.  They do now have an add-on (script equivalent) that announces password characters as you type.  This violates every single principle of security that exists.

I use a password manager just in case I should forget what I created using The Portmanteau Method of Creating Passwords, for the odd occasion of a very seldom used site where I forget what I used for the website specific element in the portmanteau password.  But, ideally, you should be able to recall a password.  And if typing is problematic, it makes much more sense to use a password manager for storage and copy/paste the password out of it.

Hi,


Using: latest Jaws and W10 64 bit.


Can someone please inform me how to have Jaws say each character as a password is being typed rather than star, star etc.


It would be great if a default setting could be changed so all browsers would function in this way but if each browser's settings had to be changed then so be it.


On my home computer, this will not be a security problem.


Thanks

Re: How to locate a missing file

Bill White
 

Hi, Shirley. Yes, there is a way to check. If, under your Windows Operating System Drive, under Program Files, the Folder, Freedom Scientific, has a folder that says JAWS, then your copy of JAWS is 64-bit. If, on the other hand, your Windows Operating System drive, under Program Files (x86) the Folder, Freedom Scientific, has a folder that says JAWS, then your copy of JAWS is 32-bit. All the programs in the Program Files (x86) folder can operate as 32-bit. Some applications, such as Internet Explorer have a folder in both folders. This means that these apps in particular, have elements of the app that operate under both 32-bit and 64-bit modes. Both the folder Program Files and the folder, Program Files (x86) have a folder called Freedom Scientific, but they don't both have a folder inside the Freedom Scientific folder called JAWS. This is how you will know.

Re: How to locate a missing file

 

By the way, and because the need to check this information does come up, if you want to get a quick snapshot of your system specs, including the bit depth of your computer's CPU:

Open Settings, System, About pane and then have a look at the content in that pane.  The entry for system type is where processor bit depth of your CPU is explicitly stated.  Unless you have a very old machine, the info there will likely be 64-bit operating system, x64 based processor.  If you happen to have very old hardware, it is possible this might read 32-bit operating system, x86-based processor.

Re: How to locate a missing file

 

Shirley,

There is still a lot of software written during the 32-bit era that remains that way but works perfectly fine under 64-bit hardware.  My Office 2016 is the 32-bit version, for instance.

Most vendors who have a 64-bit version will sell you that for 64-bit hardware, but there are occasions where 32-bit software is recommended even if the hardware itself is 64-bit.

The above having been said, if you know you have 64-bit hardware (and these days most of us do) then download one of the 64-bit versions.  Most would just do the 64-bit full installer, but a portable version exists as well.

Have you tried scanning the document using the Jaws key and space-bar then o then d.

 

I find that helps sometimes.

 

Or else try to open the file in Word. Just open Word then open the file from there. It should convert to word.

Subject: Help - I'm at my wit's end. JAWS will not advance to next page in tagged PDF #jaws

 

I have a 150 page PDF which is tagged and passed the accessibility checker and PDF/UA checkers.

However, when I test it in Adobe Reader on JAWS, JAWS reads to the bottom of the page and stops. Hitting the arrow key just repeats the last word on the page like it's reached the end of the document. CTRL + Page Down does advance you to the next page, but takes you to the last line on the next page which is obviously far from an ideal experience for the end user. Insert + Down Arrow (Say All) only reads current page.

I have tried changing the accessibility and reading settings to (a) read the entire document, (b) large documents read current page and changing size of large document to a minimum of 200 pgs (longer than this pdf), and (c) read single page continuous. None of them worked.

The document is due to my client today and would be good to go if not for this weird issue. In 10 years of pdf remediation, I've never encountered this problem before.

Because I have an NDA, I cannot share the file.


Re: Help - I'm at my wit's end. JAWS will not advance to next page in tagged PDF #jaws

Laura R
 

So I figured it out and I'm not sure which worked or whether it was the combination.
Set Adobe preferences to Read the Entire Document (as I had tried before) and Unchecked Enhanced Security.

One thing that may have tricked me is that when set to Read Entire Doc, it takes much longer to load in JAWS but neither JAWS nor Adobe has any indicator that it is indeed loading. So it appears nothing is happening and it didn't work.

Thanks everyone.

The Recents folder wasn't showing so I had to unhide it to access it, but below is another way of getting the shortcut on the desktop.  One more question, where is the setting for saving copies of files to the Recent folder?

 

1. From the desktop make sure nothing is selected and open the context menu with your applications key or Shift + F10.


2. From the Context Menu, navigate to, New, and press enter.


3. Select Shortcut and press enter.

 

4. In the edit field, type or copy / paste the location of the item below,

 

%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\


5. Tab to, Next, and press the spacebar.


6. Name the shortcut Recent Items or a different name if desired.  Recent Items is there by default if you want to leave it this way.


7. Tab to, Finish, and press the spacebar.  You should now have a desktop icon called, Recent Items, or whatever you named it.

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Many ways to skin a cat.

One of the immediate customisations I make to any Windows machine I install is to put  a shortcut to the Recent folder on my Desktop.

The folder path for the Recent Folder  on Windows 10 is.

C:\Users/your user name \Recent

You need to look for your own user name in the Users directory.

Bring up the context  menu on the recent folder and press n for send to and finally from the send to sub menu select Desktop create shortcut.

The Recent folder shortcut will open a folder containing shortcuts to all the documents you have opened/saved so makes finding lost documents easy.

The other thing I do is sort this by date modified so that the most recent documents are at the top of the list which makes finding them easy as well.

To do this open  the Recent folder.

Make sure your screenreader announces not selected. If it says selected control space to make sure it says not selected.

Now press application key or shift F10 to bring up the context menu again and now find sort and tin the sub menu select date modified.

It takes about 2 or 3 minutes to setup   this folder but this simple customisation has helped me countless times over the years finding lost files saved in strange places.

Subject: How to locate a missing file

 

I wrote something in WORD PAD, and when I went to open it again it was not there. I wrote the information in a new WORD PAD file and when I tried to save it, I received the message that I already had that file. So, how do I find it? It’s not in “file explorer.” This has all happened since the latest update of Microsoft.

Thanks for any help.

Re: Web elements being read on one line

Randy Barnett
 

i've noticed this behavior in all chromium browsers. I don't know why it happens it's annoying assume it has something to do with the accessibility set up of the website. For example yes no cancel next etc. buttons or links will often be read out as one continuous element and you have to use the jaws cursor to arrow to each one independently I'm not really sure what to do about it. If this isn't what you're experiencing I'm sorry I misunderstood.

Hi everyone,

 

I have recently started to encounter multiple situations, where I have multiple web elements being read by JAWS on one line, when I am navigating a site. I know this can be an issue in NVDA if you do not uncheck the check box for “Use Screen Layout”, as NVDA will read the inline content on one line. Is there something I can change in JAWS or is this a site issue? I am running the latest Win 10 and this is happening with the most up to date versions of Firefox and Chrome with the most up to date version of JAWS 2021 and 2020.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Joe

Hi, Mike. I don't have Virtual Cursor turned off in Firefox, and I can make options changes just fine.

Hi Judy,

 

If you're new to Firefox, like myself, you need to go into the Settings Center and assign sounds for when edit fields are opened / closed.  Also, I suggested the turning off of the virtual cursor keystroke because it's necessary to turn the virtual cursor off when navigating the menues to make option changes.  You might want to run Firefox with forms mode set to Automatic to get the hang of it and this way you may not miss the edit fields you're looking for.

 

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Hi Ann & Judy,

 

Insert + spacebar, then Z, is not the keystroke you want.  This keystroke is a toggle for running Jaws with its default settings and switching back to your personal settings.

 

The keystroke you want is, Insert + Z, this toggles the virtual cursor off / on.

Try insert+spacebar, then z.  If JAWS has done something weird, this
keystroke will allow you to run it without the weirdness.

good luck.

Re: How to locate a missing file

Mike B.
 


Hi David,
 
The Recents folder wasn't showing so I had to unhide it to access it, but below is another way of getting the shortcut on the desktop.  One more question, where is the setting for saving copies of files to the Recent folder?
 
1. From the desktop make sure nothing is selected and open the context menu with your applications key or Shift + F10.

2. From the Context Menu, navigate to, New, and press enter.

3. Select Shortcut and press enter.
 
4. In the edit field, type or copy / paste the location of the item below,
 
%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\

5. Tab to, Next, and press the spacebar.

6. Name the shortcut Recent Items or a different name if desired.  Recent Items is there by default if you want to leave it this way.

7. Tab to, Finish, and press the spacebar.  You should now have a desktop icon called, Recent Items, or whatever you named it.
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Many ways to skin a cat.

One of the immediate customisations I make to any Windows machine I install is to put  a shortcut to the Recent folder on my Desktop.

The folder path for the Recent Folder  on Windows 10 is.

C:\Users/your user name \Recent

You need to look for your own user name in the Users directory.

Bring up the context  menu on the recent folder and press n for send to and finally from the send to sub menu select Desktop create shortcut.

The Recent folder shortcut will open a folder containing shortcuts to all the documents you have opened/saved so makes finding lost documents easy.

The other thing I do is sort this by date modified so that the most recent documents are at the top of the list which makes finding them easy as well.

To do this open  the Recent folder.

Make sure your screenreader announces not selected. If it says selected control space to make sure it says not selected.

Now press application key or shift F10 to bring up the context menu again and now find sort and tin the sub menu select date modified.

It takes about 2 or 3 minutes to setup   this folder but this simple customisation has helped me countless times over the years finding lost files saved in strange places.
