Re: How to append digital signature to a pdf

Adekoya Rasak
 

Thank Brian. However, I have tried to read the document you sent but
it has no keyboard shortcut.
Can you provide this. I have tried to open my Adobe to do this. I was
able to get to the fill and sign but could not proceed from there
because JAWS could not read the next set of page that open afterward.

Please, help.

Thank.

I’ve never had to do this, but a couple of other blind users asked me if I could figure this out, and I never was able to do it. Would be interesting to know…

Hi Brian,

 

Can you get to Fill And Sign using the keyboard?  I haven’t found it yet.

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).

Re: Question re JFW18.0.5038 and Braille Output

Hello Dani:

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

For me, I found this setting made all the difference, in how I viewed the lay out of Windows and the formatting of documents, using my braille display

Re: Subject: outlook over metered connections

Hi John,

I'd turn this question around. Are you on a limited data plan? If not, do as I do, and set the connection to your hotspot to unmetered.

I have 40GB a month and most times don't use it, so I turn unmetered off.

All the best

Re: Windows 10 and Jaws 2019 question

 

The Application key alternative is Shift + F10, but once again, if your function keys don't yet behave as normal function keys it would be FN + Shift + F10.

Re: Windows 10 and Jaws 2019 question

 

I assume that on George's laptop the function keys are not set up to work as function keys and he will probably have to press the FN key along with any normal function key shortcut, e.g. instead of Jaws key + F12 or Jaws Key + F11 he would need to press FN + Jaws Key + F12 or FN + Jaws Key + F11.
The FN key is typically between the Control and Windows Keys on the left side of the spacebar, the Control Key is usually on the very outside and the FN key to the right of that, then Windows Key, Then Alt Key and then Spacebar.
By Jaws Key I mean Numpad + Insert, sorry, I don't ever use the laptop keyboard layout.
George, you should be able to make the function keys behave as normal function keys, you can try to press FN + Escape and see if that does the trick, if not you will need sighted help since this otherwise has to be done in the BIOS which you access with a particular key press as the system boots up and there is no speech available in the BIOS.

Re: Subject: outlook over metered connections

 

Metered connection is a Windows 10 setting, not an Outlook setting, though Outlook recognizes when it's using an internet connection designated as Metered by Windows 10.

Make sure you're connected to your phone as your WiFi connection before proceeding

Settings, Network & Internet, Wi-Fi Pane, Select the connection that you're currently connected to and activate it (it acts as though it's a button).  In the dialog that's now up for that connection, find the Metered Connection section and turn the toggle for Set as metered connection to OFF.

Once you've done this the connection is no longer metered and Outlook will not issue the warning.

See:  https://www.outlook-tips.net/tips/turn-off-the-metered-network-warning-in-outlook/

Re: Creating a google doc in Chrome?

Steve Nutt
 

Yes.

 

But first, let’s make sure that you have screen reader mode enabled in Docs itself.  To do this, press Control+Alt+Z.  If it says Screen Reader Mode Enabled, then you had it switched off.  Obviously, do this when in Docs using Chrome.

 

All the best

Hi!

I am using Jaws 2018 on a Win10 laptop. I am trying to create a Google doc with Chrome. I can get as far as hitting the create new document button, and when I press enter, I get a template dialogue, Jaws says blank so I hit enter, but the document doesn’t come up, or at least Jaws doesn’t indicate that the doc has been created.

Is it possible to do this without a pair of working eyeballs?

Re: Windows 10 and Jaws 2019 question

Hi, G. You need to have a sighted person go into your bios and uncheck Media keys, Hot keys, or Action keys. Your function keys have been assigned to other functions than JAWS by default, and the only way to use them right now is to hold down the FN key as well as the INS key to get the JAWS functions.

Re: Windows 10 and Jaws 2019 question

With some laptops the f keys need the FN key pressed to do their normal action; so try insert-FN-f12.
A sure fired way to get a shortcut on the desktop is to use Windows File explorer; Windows key plus e and navigate to the executable file in the c Program Files folder, and right click on it and select create shortcut and it will offer to put it on the desktop because you cannot create a shortcut there.
I think there is a method with fewer steps that someone will chime in with.
I'd also recommend having more RAM installed.
4 GB is barely enough to run Windows 10.

Re: Windows 10 and Jaws 2019 question

James Homuth
 

Sounds like your laptop may have function keys turned on. If so, hold down the FN key and do insert+f12. There's a setting to disable that, but I'm not sure on that model if you can do it in Windows 10 or if you have to go to the bios. What this is supposed to do is set it up so you can control things like the volume through your function keys. My laptop also has this setting, but I disabled it ages ago.
