Re: Is Edge usable as a browser with JAWS?

One thing I like about edge is that it tells you when page is complete and loading. I also like how the notification is so clear.

It’ll say something like press alt+N,  for this notification. It says: XYZ XYZ XYZ.

I like this a lot.

I use Chrome too, for the most part. I’ve tried edge and it does seem to work with both JAWS and NVDA. There are some oddities with JAWS, for example the speech announces entering and exiting various elementswhen navigation keys are used.

 

However, my experience with Edge is not at all extensive. I don’t yet need it for professional purposes (I work on accessibility research and standards activities, for which Chrome and Firefox are enough). I also use Chrome and safari on the Mac regularly, so it isn’t as though I’m lacking options in the browser department.

 

Edge is well worth watching. Microsoft developers have been improving its accessibility support in impressive ways, including ARIA and HTML standards.

Re: getting rid of adverts when on a website

 

The uBlock Origin extension (and add-on, if you're using Firefox) and uBlock Origin Extra extension (Chrome only) are great.

I haven't used a web browser without an ad blocker of some sort for a very long time now, and I used AdBlock Plus for years and still think it's very good, too.

Re: JAWS Scripts - Are they interpreted or compiled?

Yes, the punctuation script is contained in the default.jss file.

Rather than completely remove Jaws 2019 as you advise, what about if I

Subject: Re: JAWS Scripts - Are they interpreted or compiled?

Those instructions are incorrect. You should never modify default.jss
or default.jsb files. There are other ways that Freedom Scientific has
designed for you to create or modify JAWS behavior.

What you need to do is this:

Part A: Check your default.jss and default.jsb file
1. Open Script Manager and press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default file.
2. See if your punctuation script is in the file. If it is, keep
following these instructions. If not, skip to Part B.
3. You need to get a clean copy of these files. The way I would
recommend is to completely remove JAWS 2019 from your system. Then
install JAWS 2019 again, but do not migrate any settings because then
you will be back where you started.
4. Check before using JAWS that this folder is completely empty:
C:\Users\[YourUserDirectory]\AppData\Roaming\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\2019\Settings\enu.

Part B: Adding your punctuation script
1. Open Script Manager.
2. Press CTRL+O to open the Open dialog.
3. Navigate to this location: C:\ProgramData\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\2019\Scripts.
4. Open the file MyExtensions.jss.
5. Write your script at the bottom of this file, and press CTRL+S to compile
it.

I haven't heard of this particular script.

Just to verify, is this a third-party script for which you were
provided with the .jsb file? If so, please make sure you can locate
the file in the following location:
C:\Users\[YourUserDirectory]\AppData\Roaming\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\2019\Settings\enu If you have the .jss and/or .jsh
file, you should probably show it to someone who knows how to read it
to verify that it's not calling on a particular script or function or

Under 2018, the script could be run from anywhere on the system but
since
changing to 2019, the only place the script works is when it is run from
the
desktop. If I am in a folder on another drive say, hitting shift

If I still wish to change the punctuation level then it is a trip back

Darn. I was too lazy to check and catch that homonym.
Anyway... to sort of stay on topic, I’m pretty agnostic about the subscription model or whether one's better than the other. I am a subscriber to a couple of Office small business plans Mainly for the exchange accounts and while I'm entitled to the standard desktop installs, I've been in the habit of getting my Office licenses via eBay, but just the key and not the DVD. You can grab these for anywhere from $5 to $12. I've posted about this in the past.
It's completely on the up and up due to an EU regulation having to do with some sort of antitrust/antitrade stipulation (Those darn government rules. Tyranny I tell you!). Too boring and technical to really get into, but the quick and dirty is that companies make a business out of buying busted or retired systems in bulk to extract among other things, scrap, parts and the extraction of the associated keys. I think OS licenses are a bit more of a gray area and to be on the safe side, you're probably best off just buying a Windows OS key through the MS store if you don't want the feds kicking down your door or find that you got stuck with a bogus key, but office licenses? Fair game.
I just recently grabbed my wife an Office 2016 Professional license a couple of weeks ago for $9 from a seller in the UK to put on her new Dell laptop.
Standard caveats if you go this rout and all that. Check the seller's ratings and if it's one dude with 2 feedbacks or if it's some random guy trying to sell his one license, you may be better off passing and looking somewhere else. There are enough out there that keys are not hard to find through sellers who've got thousands of reviews. Paying $10 rather than $80 is really sticking it to the man...
That or you could sell your digital soul and subjugate yourself to the MS overlords with a sub. Choices choices.

Interesting interpretation regarding the "surf" by which I assume you meant a "serf".
I fail to see the connection between a subscriber which is what you are when you subscribe to Office 365 and a serf which, by definition is an "agricultural laborer bound under the feudal system to work on his lord's estate."
Just because you don't want to pay a subscription for Office 365 which also includes 1 Tb of OneDrive storage, cost for that on Dropbox alone is as much or more than the Office 365 subscription) doesn't mean others find it reduces them to serfdom.

If you want MS Office cheap on a DVD, go to eBay. A single PC license of the professional version that includes Access is $84 and a two PC version is $104. The license lasts forever, unlike the $70 a year for Office 365. That’s $140 for just two years and $210 for three years.
If you get Office 365, Microsoft has effectively turned you into a surf.

Another con for Office 365 is the possibility of being removed from the service and having all your files deleted without notice. Section I of the MS services agreement tells users “Don’t do anything illegal.” This would mean that if you told a friend you smoked a joint of marijuana, you violated the services agreement and can have your account suspended. This is because while the substance is legal in some states, it is still illegal on the federal level. Even if someone were using marijuana to cure themselves of cancer, Microsoft doesn’t care. The person was committing an illegal act and therefore has violated the services agreement and deserves to be banned for life. Another doozy is in section vii of the services agreement.
Microsoft tells users to “Don’t engage in activity that is harmful to
you, the Services, or others.” Microsoft gives obvious examples of
nasty and destructive behavior like transmitting viruses, stalking, and posting terrorist content. Another example listed refers to “communicating hate speech, or advocating violence against others.”
The second provision would be extremely troubling if you are a gun owner and possess firearms for personal defense. Advocating for gun rights, stand your ground laws, and laws that eliminate any duty to retreat from an attacker could be considered by some as advocating violence as the person would be using lethal force in defense of his life. Using violence in self-defense is perfectly legal, but it is still advocating violence, according to some on the left. The technology industry has removed many thousands of people from Web-based services, such as Google, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube over issues of hate speech, which the companies never define or explicitly describe. Recently, large numbers of Google Docs users found themselves locked out of their account because an automated system determined they had used the software to create unspecified material that the company considered hate speech. Those blocked include academic scientists and business owners who insisted nothing of a controversial or political nature was stored on Google’s system. The company later acknowledged that a staff programmer made a change to an algorithm that created many hate speech false positives. If you were to buy an Office 2016 DVD, your access to Access, Word and other Office programs will never be denied for grounds of simply having a political opinion, or someone’s arbitrary determination of hate speech or engaging in illegal activity of a law you knew nothing about.

Hello,

I'm using Windows10 and Jaws 2018. I was looking to switch to Office
365. I need to start using Access. I'm looking for the most cost
effective way to get Access. I either go to Office 365 and pay the $70
per year for the personal version. Or purchase a stand alone Access
2016 for $129. What are the pros and cons of using office 365?

Cheers,

JAWS 2018 Behaving Sluggishly in Outlook 16 on a Windows 10 machine

Rahul Bajaj
 

Hi all,

The sluggishness is in the shape of there being a lag between when the
letters are typed and when they actually appear in the body of the
email. Editing emails is also proving to be a much slower process. Any
thoughts?

Best,
Rahul

Just to clarify what you mean below, in fact "Access 2016" *does* come with Office 2016. Recently, I purchased on eBay for $65 an authentic DVD of MS Office 2016+ Professional (2 PC Install). It has Access 2016.

Thanks for the suggestions. Actually I jus want to get Access 2016. That doesn't come with Office 2016. I will look on Ebay and other places to see if I can find a cheaper price than $129.

Yep, all good points that people should generally be aware of.

I got my copy of Office 2016 for $40.
Oh, and in case all that oneDrive storage is an incentive for you -- be aware too that the service has had a number of reported unexpected outages.

If you want MS Office cheap on a DVD, go to eBay. A single PC license of the professional version that includes Access is $84 and a two PC version is $104. The license lasts forever, unlike the $70 a year for Office 365. That’s $140 for just two years and $210 for three years.
If you get Office 365, Microsoft has effectively turned you into a surf.

Another con for Office 365 is the possibility of being removed from the service and having all your files deleted without notice. Section I of the MS services agreement tells users “Don’t do anything illegal.” This would mean that if you told a friend you smoked a joint of marijuana, you violated the services agreement and can have your account suspended. This is because while the substance is legal in some states, it is still illegal on the federal level. Even if someone were using marijuana to cure themselves of cancer, Microsoft doesn’t care. The person was committing an illegal act and therefore has violated the services agreement and deserves to be banned for life. Another doozy is in section vii of the services agreement.
Microsoft tells users to “Don’t engage in activity that is harmful to
you, the Services, or others.” Microsoft gives obvious examples of
nasty and destructive behavior like transmitting viruses, stalking, and posting terrorist content. Another example listed refers to “communicating hate speech, or advocating violence against others.”
The second provision would be extremely troubling if you are a gun owner and possess firearms for personal defense. Advocating for gun rights, stand your ground laws, and laws that eliminate any duty to retreat from an attacker could be considered by some as advocating violence as the person would be using lethal force in defense of his life. Using violence in self-defense is perfectly legal, but it is still advocating violence, according to some on the left. The technology industry has removed many thousands of people from Web-based services, such as Google, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube over issues of hate speech, which the companies never define or explicitly describe. Recently, large numbers of Google Docs users found themselves locked out of their account because an automated system determined they had used the software to create unspecified material that the company considered hate speech. Those blocked include academic scientists and business owners who insisted nothing of a controversial or political nature was stored on Google’s system. The company later acknowledged that a staff programmer made a change to an algorithm that created many hate speech false positives. If you were to buy an Office 2016 DVD, your access to Access, Word and other Office programs will never be denied for grounds of simply having a political opinion, or someone’s arbitrary determination of hate speech or engaging in illegal activity of a law you knew nothing about.

Re: pros and cons of Office 365

Darn. I was too lazy to check and catch that homonym.
Anyway... to sort of stay on topic, I’m pretty agnostic about the subscription model or whether one's better than the other. I am a subscriber to a couple of Office small business plans Mainly for the exchange accounts and while I'm entitled to the standard desktop installs, I've been in the habit of getting my Office licenses via eBay, but just the key and not the DVD. You can grab these for anywhere from $5 to $12. I've posted about this in the past.
It's completely on the up and up due to an EU regulation having to do with some sort of antitrust/antitrade stipulation (Those darn government rules. Tyranny I tell you!). Too boring and technical to really get into, but the quick and dirty is that companies make a business out of buying busted or retired systems in bulk to extract among other things, scrap, parts and the extraction of the associated keys. I think OS licenses are a bit more of a gray area and to be on the safe side, you're probably best off just buying a Windows OS key through the MS store if you don't want the feds kicking down your door or find that you got stuck with a bogus key, but office licenses? Fair game.
I just recently grabbed my wife an Office 2016 Professional license a couple of weeks ago for $9 from a seller in the UK to put on her new Dell laptop.
Standard caveats if you go this rout and all that. Check the seller's ratings and if it's one dude with 2 feedbacks or if it's some random guy trying to sell his one license, you may be better off passing and looking somewhere else. There are enough out there that keys are not hard to find through sellers who've got thousands of reviews. Paying $10 rather than $80 is really sticking it to the man...
That or you could sell your digital soul and subjugate yourself to the MS overlords with a sub. Choices choices.

Interesting interpretation regarding the "surf" by which I assume you meant a "serf".
I fail to see the connection between a subscriber which is what you are when you subscribe to Office 365 and a serf which, by definition is an "agricultural laborer bound under the feudal system to work on his lord's estate."
Just because you don't want to pay a subscription for Office 365 which also includes 1 Tb of OneDrive storage, cost for that on Dropbox alone is as much or more than the Office 365 subscription) doesn't mean others find it reduces them to serfdom.

Re: Is Edge usable as a browser with JAWS?

Hi, Keith. I use Edge for some things like Internet radio streaming, but it has some nasty querks, like displaying pages in tabular form, even when the page doesn’t display as a table in other browsers.

Hi,

 

I’m new to Windows 10, and currently using Google Chrome as my default browser, which is working well.

 

I haven’t heard mention recently about usability of Edge browser with JAWS, so I’m guessing it’s still is not a viable option, but wanted to check by inquiring here.

 

Curious to learn of it’s current status.

 

Thanks in advance, Keith
