Re: How To Re-Read Download File Path

JM Casey
 

Hm.

Firefox should definitely be storing your downloads in the same location every time … that is, the location you specify in your options/settings, which someone else already described how to do.

In my case, it’s the “downloads” sub-foldedr of my user directory.

 

You can open the firefox downloads library with ctrl-j, move to a file, press the applications key to open the context menu, and go to “open containing folder”.

This will open a file explorer window showing the folder itself, from which you can get the path name easily, if you need to. Someone already described how to make sure the path name is in the title. You can also highlight a filename, and press alt-enter to view its properties. Note that this doesn’t work in the standard Firefox downloads library window as that’s not really a part of file explorer

Subject: How To Re-Read Download File Path

 

Hello, everyone.

 

Occasionally, when I download a file from Firefox, I get an alert saying that the file has been stored in a temporary file folder on my computer’s C. Drive.

 

The file path is often quite long, and I sometimes have to download the file several times in order to get enough of an idea of the path to actually find the file.

 

I tried using the Jaws cursor to re-read the file path, but was not successful.

 

Is there a better way to re-read the download file path?

 

I’m sure there’s a way to go into Firefox and tell it where I want all downloaded files to go, but I haven’t figured that procedure out yet.

 

Thanks for any help.

I'll dig into this at some point today.   

I have not tried this with Adobe Reader DC and don't try everything when it comes to programs that have been historically well supported by screen readers and that have been very largely accessible.  I'll try to figure out what the bump in the road happens to be and whether there's a keyboard shortcut or other method around it.

Hello all.  I have followed this thread with interest mainly because I am in desperate need of learning how to set up PDF files with editable fields that are accessible and useable by fellow screen reader users.  I don't want to high jack this thread.  I would like some help on this however.  If someone could email me privately, I would appreciate it very much.

Steve and Adekoya,

           I cannot find any blessed way to activate the Fill & Sign using the keyboard, and even if I activated it with the mouse, the dropdown menu under the Sign option is not accessible either via the keyboard nor, when I mouse over it, does it read anything relevant (Add signature versus Add initials).  Adobe has clearly done a poor job with accessibility in the Reader DC version of Acrobat Reader, which is a shame since they both invented the PDF format and had pretty much been "the gold standard" of accessibility with screen readers.

           Adekoya, what you had been asking about is an electronic signature, and I hate to even call it that.  I do the same thing in Excel spreadsheets and it amounts to inserting a scanned image of your actual signature.  There are some entities that will accept that, but many will not.

           I have found that PDF-XChange Editor has become more accessible than it had been at its release, and it has true digital signature capability, but that is not the same thing as inserting an image of a signature, and it is not supported in the free version of the program.

           I very seldom edit PDFs, and the ones I have to sign, such as my tax forms, generally download as editable for the form fields and allow me to save the filled-out form, including a typed "signature" which is accepted.

           If this is for a PDF form that you will use again and again and again, and can manage the rest of it in your PDF Editor of choice, this is a time where a sighted assistant could insert the electronic scanned signature into a blank copy, then that could be your template each time you need to use it in the future.

            I'm actually downright shocked at how inaccessible Reader DC is for other than strictly reading.

Re: How To Re-Read Download File Path

Hi, Tom. If using JAWS, and Windows 10,

 

1. Open Control Panel.

2. Open File Explorer Options.

3. Use CONTROL plus TAB to navigate to the View tab.

4. Look for an option which says:

 

“Show File path in Title Bar”

 

5. Press SPACE to turn this option on.

6. TAB to Apply, and press ENTER.

7. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

8. When needing a file path, navigate to the file.

9. Press INSERT plus T to read the title. The file path will now be in the title with INSERT plus T.

Unfortunately, making the upgrade available requires the manufacturer's input, and HP wasn't willing to do that on the machine I was fighting with. Sometimes different hardware really is the answer.


I've never had a problem like that before or since, but there it is.

Anyhow, one should think a BIOS upgrade might fix that if the BIOS is the problem.
Maybe there is another reason why Robbie didn't upgrade, I was just curious. Since Jaws 2018 was mentioned the screenreader certainly wouldn't be a problem.

I know what it is you're trying to do, as I do it myself for billing sheets I submit, but I hasten to add that this is not a digital signature.

Digital signing is a thing of its own and requires no image file of any kind.  If the entity accepting the file allows digital signatures you can simply insert one on the file itself using your PDF reader or editor of choice (if it's got the digital signing feature, and most do).

As an experiment, open Settings Centre, press CTRL+SHIFT+D, to load the default settings, TAB to the Tree View, then press the letter M, until you get to Miscellaneous, press RIGHT ARROW, TO OPEN THIS OPTION, PRESS down arrow, UNTIL YOU GET TO Pixels Per Space, the default value is 8, Press F6, to open the edit box, type 99, press F6, to close the edit box, TAB to APPLY and press the SPACE BAR, to accept the new setting, TAB to OK and press ENTER to close Settings Centre
