Re: The best accessible RSS-reader to Google Chrome with JAWS 2019

Cristóbal
 

The Old reader is web based and thus can be accessed from any machine or browser. www.theoldreader.com

You don’t have to worry about losing all your RSS feeds being lost if your machine dies or if somehow the browser gets corrupted or anything like that. For me, The Old Reader has proven to be the best solution and is quite accessible. To each their own, but I’d be reluctant to recommend IE since the browser itself is getting stale and is at the end of its development lifecycle. I doubt it would be a prudent choice to further tie oneself  to anything IE related at this point. Also, I did at one time use the IE built in RSS feature and while it was accessible enough, from what I recall, it wasn’t anything special.

The Old Reader has free and paid options.

Hi Again, and thanks for the answer.

One of my friends have problems on his computer, where Internet Explorer not will startup at the time I write you. Therefore I looking after another RSS-reader.

What is the best accessible RSS-reader that I install on Windows itself with JAWS 2019?

question about web apps?

Jessica D
 

Hi,

 

I’m sorry if this is off topic for this list, but I don’t know of any list I’m on, where I could ask this.

 

I found an app for podcasts, called Pocketcasts, which works quite nicely with jaws2019.

 

My question is, can you download stuff from a web app?

 

Can I download episodes, like I can with the ios app?

Any info on this topic would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Steve, in Windows 7, thumbnails and the preview pane have been disabled
already but he still gets the problem 5 or 6 times out of 10 times using

Hi,

For Windows 7 especially, go into Explorer and disable thumbnails and
the preview pane.  You will find not only will it reduce these problems,
but accessing files is much speedier.

"Not Responding" errors are, by their very nature, mysterious.   If a
shutdown/restart cycle clears them, and is not needed on a very frequent
basis, that is my suggested fix.  I get "not responding" not
infrequently, particularly with web browsers, but sometimes with task
manager and file explorer (Windows Explorer in 7 and earlier).

If it's really, really frequent, then something's likely amiss with
Windows itself and repairs to Windows should be done in an attempt to
fix it.

Re: outlook 2016 and JAWS 2019, seems to be a new bug

Hi Sieghard!

 

Your below is interesting.  However, for me when I follow these steps I end up hearing a series of "try" commands.  What are those?  I do not hear the option button about new features.  I wonder if my hearing these "try" commands means that I have the new features option turned-on?  Perhaps an alt+u would toggle them off?  What do you think?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hi Steve,

 

Have you checked if the "Coming Soon" feature in Outlook is turned off?

When you are in your Inbox press the Alt key to bring up the ribbon menu, you should be on "Home", now left arrow twice, here is Jaws History:

 

I press the Alt key and here this:

Upper Ribbon, Ribbon, Home Tab, Alt followed by H I press the left arrow once and here this:

Leaving menus, File Tab Button, Alt followed by F I press the left arrow a second time and here this:

Ribbon Tabs Tab expanded, Turn on features coming soon Button, Alt followed by U

 

As you can see Alt followed by U is the shortcut, but that will just toggle it and not tell you if it's on or off.

If it says " Turn on features coming soon" then it is off and your problem is a different one.

But if you hear Turn off features coming soon Button checked" then it is on and you can turn this off by pressing the spacebar.

Note that whether you turn it on or off Jaws will focus on an "OK" button and the message which it seems you can only read with the touch cursor is simply this:

 

You must restart this application for the changes to take effect.

OK

 

So go ahead and press OK, then close Outlook completely, wait a few seconds and reopen it, now try to see if you can read those fields with the shortcut keys.

I suggest this should be turned off, if it is on you may get upcoming features which could cause issues like this before Vispero and/or Microsoft has time to make any necessary changes.

I certainly also don't have any issues with Alt + 1, Alt + 2 and so on reading the From, To, CC etc. Fields.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Re: best version of outlook

 

I don’t know about group conversations, but in my view you will probably get the best results with the subscription version of Outlook which you get if you subscribe to Office 365. Jaws 2019 now separates the scripts for this version of Office which includes Outlook from the so-called retail version which would be the one where you buy Office for a one-time purchase price. The scripts for the subscription version will get the most attention and get  updated the most going forward.

Keep in mind that it’s a big step from Outlook 2010 to the subscription version, not all of it is good, but as far as I am concerned Office/Outlook 2010 is not something you can use forever so you might as well get used to the new Office. One thing for me which was a big deal and which started with Outlook 2013 was the fact that I can set up my Outlook.com account without first having to download this old Hotmail Connector or whatever it was called. Starting with Outlook 2013 there is native support for Exchange Active Sync so all you have to do if you use an Outlook.com account is to enter your email address and password and it just configures itself, all your emails, contacts and so on sync to the cloud and if you use Outlook on another computer or set up your account in the Mail app on an iPhone it all works seamlessly.

Re: outlook 2016 and JAWS 2019, seems to be a new bug

 

Alt + U does toggle it as I said, but if you want to check if it's on or not in the first place pressing the Alt key and arrowing left twice will give you that info. I actually think it might be on by default so it's something everybody who uses Office 365 should check since having this on to me is not worth it.

And, if you have Fast Startup enabled, you must do a Restart, not a Shutdown followed by power up cycle, to get the computer to reload Windows 10 from disc from scratch rather than using the system hibernation file employed by Fast Startup.

If you don't, then either a Restart or a Shutdown followed by power up will give you a fresh loading of Windows 10 off of disc.

Re: Jaws and adobe, adding signature

 

There needs to be a clear distinction made here between an electronic signature, which is essentially embedding a scanned copy of someone's signature into a PDF at a specific location, and a digital signature, which has no "looks like a person's real signature" component at all but is generally legally binding.

I've just gone through trying to add both with Adobe Reader DC and have to report that I can find no way to do either with a screen reader.  Adobe has made a massive step back in accessibility with Reader DC.   I must admit, though, that I did not try NVDA's object navigation to try to get to the controls, and that at least has the potential to work, but may not, either.

If you are actually the signatory and want an electronic signature, then I'd strongly suggest that you set up the template you use to create the review in the first place such that your electronic signature is already in it.  If you have control over the electronic copy of the template, as well as the documents generated from it, this is a workable solution.

Re: major windows 10 problem with jaws, file explorer not responding

Tom Lange
 

Hi,
While it may be true that something in Windows is corrupted and in need of some serious repair, File Explorer may be getting bogged down and hanging up especially during occasions when you are attempting to navigate a folder listing very quickly using first-letter navigation.  This used to happen to me on older Windows 7 machines. I’d be in a large list of hundreds of files, and if I moved too quickly using the arrows or first-letter navigation, Windows Explorer would crash and go unresponsive. The solution? Turn off all thumbnails, ditch the preview pane and anything to do with preview handling. Not only did Windows Explorer perform much better with no hangs, I didn’t have to deal with those pesky thumbs.db files which were a pain in the butt whenever I’d try to delete unwanted folders. I’d be willing to bet that doing something similar to what I just described may help in File Explorer in Windows 10, too. Just a hunch. Hope it helps.

Tom

Re: major windows 10 problem with jaws, file explorer not responding

 

For doing a repair install of Windows 10, follow whichever of the three following instruction sets you prefer.  But, definitely download a fresh copy of both the Media Creation Tool and create a fresh copy of the Windows 10 install media using it.

You should never, and I mean never, use an old copy when it comes to Windows 10.

If, by chance, you want to entirely wipe the slate and start completely afresh with Windows 10, then follow these instructions for:

Hello,

I have stopped receiving email from the list and got an email indicating that my emails were bouncing. I responded to that maessage and got a screen that said that my account was "unbounced". I still have not received any emails from the group in the last 3 or 4 days. My email is correct and I am appropriately receiving email from other sources. Is there something else I should do or resubscribe from scratch? Thanks, Marla

Compatibility might not be guaranteed but it has long been a major
concern at MS. Think of how 16-bit programs worked up until the switch
to 64-bit windows, and even then they supported a transition for
awhile with XP mode. And 16-bit programs are far less prevalent than
IE.

Even now IE is an optional feature that has to be enabled by the user
but the MSHTML renderer is not, and it is the renderer where most of
the security issues reside.

For those in the situation your parents are in it would behoove them to seek

that IE will eventually be expunged from Windows 10.

Of course, provided one is not connecting to cyberspace, you could use a
Windows XP machine as "command central" for a non-internet-connected LAN for
all cameras in a situation like this.  I wouldn't simply because I know that
eventually I'm going to be forced to change, and probably due to
catastrophic failure of the computer.  I'd rather have control over
necessary change to the maximum extent that I can.

Take your windows cd, or download one from Microsoft. Then insert the
cd, while still in windows and reinstall windows keeping all your
personal files. This resets a lot of stuff which may have gotten
corrupted. I have had to do this a few times.

Subject: major windows 10 problem with jaws, file explorer not responding

"Not Responding" errors are, by their very nature, mysterious.   If a
shutdown/restart cycle clears them, and is not needed on a very frequent
basis, that is my suggested fix.  I get "not responding" not
infrequently, particularly with web browsers, but sometimes with task
manager and file explorer (Windows Explorer in 7 and earlier).

If it's really, really frequent, then something's likely amiss with
Windows itself and repairs to Windows should be done in an attempt to
fix it.
