Fidelity works ok when you get used to it.?? I did have an account with E-trade, but moved it to Fidelity because their features far outweigh e-trade.??

(1 Thessalonians 4:17-18)

George
Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Dr. James Dobson told this true story about a missionary in the jungle. One day the missionary entered his hut, and a gigantic snake, one of those that can swallow a whole pig, was inside. He went out to his truck and got his revolver. He only had one shell. He went in and carefully aimed at the head of that monstrous snake and pulled the trigger. The snake was mortally wounded, but he didn???t die right away. He began to writhe and thrash around, his tail going this way and that! He literally tore up everything in that hut as he was dying. 

Jesus at Calvary put a bullet right in Satan???s head. And what we???re seeing today in our society,  are the death throes of one who has been mortally wounded by the cross of Jesus Christ.   satan knows his time is short and he is doing all he can to take millions to hell.  It's time for Christians to 'wake up' and start sharing the glorious Gospel of Christ!  (1 John 5:11-13)

main@jfw.groups.io Calendar <noreply@...>
 

List Rules

When:
Tuesday, 1 September 2020
12:00am to 1:00am
(GMT-04:00) America/New York

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin

Recently someone else on this list reported crashes with Mozilla

Firefox. At the time I didn't know what to think about the problem but I

am now encountering this and I noticed it after Firefox updated to

version 80. After a short period of time of just navigating through a

Web page Firefox reports that the tab has crashed and presents me with a

button to restore the tab. These crashes are rather frequent. I only

have one extension running which is for Cisco Webex and I have disabled

this extension to see if this makes a difference. I'm not entirely sure

it's just a JAWS issue as I encountered this crash when testing with

NVDA although I so far haven't tried Firefox 80 with NVDA long enough to

determine if the crashing is happening as frequently. Have others

noticed this and is there a workaround for this?

Something else is using what are commonly called ALT codes, and they can be very handy for certain "odd symbols" that you use frequently, though it does require using the number pad as the numeric entry.

See:  https://fsymbols.com/keyboard/windows/alt-codes/list/  (I do not know whether this page is accessible as far as what will be read for the table, as it shows the digit(s) you need to type while ALT is held down, using the number pad, next to the actual symbol it would produce.  There are scads of these and even I don't know how each one of those characters would be announced.

But, for one example, if you are in MS-Word and want to insert the degree symbol, make sure that you're in the position where you want it and that number lock for the number pad is ON before you start the sequence - hold down ALT and while doing so enter 0176 on the number pad.

Also see:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/insert-ascii-or-unicode-character-codes-in-word-e97306f7-00c1-490d-9920-c924ca443f87

I endorse George’s recommendation of Schwab. Some years ago, they did considerable work on accessibility with me and another JAWS user, and they remain responsive.

Another JAWS user is an advocate of Fidelity. As a broker himself, he has some influence over Fidelity’s practices.

You may know that e-Trade is in the process of being purchased by Morgan Stanley. I’m not sure how much priority accessibility will receive during a pending acquisition.

I’ve had accessibility issues with Vanguard in the past, but I haven’t been on that website for a long time.

Well, I bother with firefox because of the facebook container plugin, and I like the way menus work much better than chrome.  Besides that, before the most recent update of Jaws, chrome and chromium-based edge would crash on my local news station kmiz.com website.  FF80 is purring like a kitten here with the latest release of jaws.

 Yes, there is a work around.  It's called Google Chrome.  To be perfectly blunt, I don't understand why anyone still bothers with Firefox.  It is a screwed up mess, constantly crashes, and seems to become less accessible with each successive release.  And most blind-friendly extensions like Webvisum and Navigational Sounds no longer work.  Mozilla betrayed its blind users by promising a new era in accessibility when they hired one of the developers of NVDA four years ago, but this has not materialized.  Whatever happened to this guy?  Is he still with Mozilla?  Or did he get laid off along with 250 other employees?

Using Win10 version 1909, JAWS 2020 for August and Firefox 80.

Recently someone else on this list reported crashes with Mozilla Firefox. At the time I didn't know what to think about the problem but I am now encountering this and I noticed it after Firefox updated to version 80. After a short period of time of just navigating through a Web page Firefox reports that the tab has crashed and presents me with a button to restore the tab. These crashes are rather frequent. I only have one extension running which is for Cisco Webex and I have disabled this extension to see if this makes a difference. I'm not entirely sure it's just a JAWS issue as I encountered this crash when testing with NVDA although I so far haven't tried Firefox 80 with NVDA long enough to determine if the crashing is happening as frequently. Have others noticed this and is there a workaround for this?
