Be careful with the windows cleanup function under disk management. There is now a entry that will delete all your files in the document folder if you check it.

Re: How do I access Jaws settings center?

Edward Green
 

Hi David,

You have a couple of ways to access Settings Center.

You can press JAWS key+f2 to bring up a list of JAWS managers. From here, arrow down to Settings center and press enter.

Alternatively you can press JAWS key+6 to open the Settings Center directly. Note that that's the 6 on the number row of your keyboard, not a function key as per the previous command.

Once in the Settings Center, you have a search box and a tree view. The tree view lets you explore the different settings, though there are rather a lot of them.

If you know roughly what setting you want to change, the search box is a useful way to narrow the tree view so that it only shows relevant results.

When you open the Settings Center, settings pertaining to the relevant Windows application will be loaded ready for modification. If you want your changes to settings to apply across the board, I.E. beyond the application you're currently in, press shift+control+d to load the default settings.

Cheers,

Ed

They don't have a phone number. They do have about 45000000000000 pages of
documentation online, including prices for drive shipments. As I don't have
exact figures handy just at the moment, you might start at their website.

Re: How do I get to a notification balloon that momentarily pops-up?

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi Richard,
 
The keystroke to access a balloon is, Numpad Slash or Left Mouse Click.  You might want to adjust the amount of time the balloon stays on the screen to give you more time to click on it.  To do this try the following:
In Windows 7 it's under "Ease of Access".  Type Ease of Access in to the
search box in the start prompt. In the Ease of Access Center go to, "Make  it
easier to focus on tasks", and hit enter.
Near the end of the options that come up is a combobox with different time settings to adjust the time
that those balloons stay on screen.
I adjusted mine to 1 minute which gives me enough time to find them and
click on them.   
Take care.  Go Rams!

Hi!

 

Sometimes, a notification balloon pops-up telling me about something on my PC.  For a sighted person, they would click on the balloon and would then be taken to the relevant thing.  In JAWS 2019, how can I get to the balloon notification to review it and activate (click on) it?  FYI, I am using Windows 7.

Re: Backblaze?

Marten Post Uiterweer
 

Hi Jessica,

I am using Backblaze. It will backup things in the cloud.
It is accessible.

You can not really tell what files will be backed up. It automaticly
backs up things. Not your windows folder or executable files.

To restore, you have to go to ther website and specify the date and
what files you want or folder.
And they also have an app for your phone.
It is doable.

Regards, Marten

Hello again Mike:
 
I ask this question because I’d like access to  all of the Youtube video keyboard controls(fast forward, rewind,etc.)and informed that this may involve being able to toggle the “virtual pc cursor” on/off.
 
I should also mention that I’m a one-handed(right) typist using a half-kwerty keyboard.
 
It has all the keys of a conventional keyboardbut makes liberal use of the spacebar to shift keys normally used by left hand so they can be typed by the right.
 
For example the /key becomes the letter z by depressing the spacebar, soas a result,  don’t know if capable of performing required key presses  via 2 simultaneous key presses as the spacebar is involved in obtaining the z character.
 
I’m quite “techno-challanged” having come to this stuff later in life than most(1962 birth year) so really don’t know difference between html files versus others.
 
Thank you,

Hopefully this will explain it well enough:
The keystroke for toggling the Virtual PC cursor is, Insert + Z.  To tobble it on / off for all applications is, Insert + Z twice quickly.
 
The Virtual PC Cursor - HTML Environment The virtual PC Cursor mimics the
functions of the PC Cursor, but is activated by default when entering an
HTML document, such as a web page on the Internet.
The virtual PC Cursor speaks the number of elements on the page when it
first opens.
For instance, the number of links, headings, and regions.
You can use the ARROW keys to navigate and read the document, or use
Navigation Quick Keys to move to specific elements, such as paragraphs,
tables, or headings.
JAWS also reads graphics labeled by alt tags in the HTML code.
 
Take care.  Go Rams!

Re: jaws19 and copying tekst

 

The command mentioned brings up Jaws speech history.

If you want to use it for a larger block of text I wanted to add that it makes sense to first clear speech history with Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by Shift + H. Then let Jaws read the text and bring up speech history with Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by H. Now you can copy all or some of the text showing in the virtual viewer.
