Provided you are not in the address edit box, ALT will throw focus on to the Chrome Menu button.  NVDA announces "Chrome Menu button" the moment you have focus on that button.  I don't have JAWS handy, but in work I've done with clients I could swear it does the same thing, at least in any of the more recent versions.

I'm now curious if JAWS is not announcing this and, if so, what version or versions aren't doing so?

Hi Dave,
 
To close Dropbox, press enter on the Dropbox icon in the system tray.  If you hear, Edit, press enter again, arrow up 1 time to, Exit, and press enter.  This will close Dropbox.

Hi,

You don't do it that way, first you need to change the location in Dropbox

Hello everyone:

I would like to move the dropbox folder from drive C to Drive f on my

However, when I open the Task Tray and highlight the Dropbox icon and press
ENTER, to open the Dropbox item, then press the SPACEBAR, to open the "GEAR"

move the Dropbox folder to the new location.

I am running Windows 7 Professional and I am using JFW 2018.

Any suggestions will be very helpful.

Hi again, Michael. If talking with you by telephone is too inconvenient, alternatively, try the following:

 

Try deleting normal.dot. This is a template. The templates are located in the following folder

 

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

 

where

 

<username>

 

is your individual username (example)

 

C:\Users\michael\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

 

Then, once you have deleted normal.dot, try opening MS Word again. The first time you open MS Word, after deleting the normal template, MS Word will create a fresh new copy of the Normal.dot template with its default settings.

 

Good luck. If you have difficulty, I will privately send you my telephone number.

I’m guessing you could take it and all your bookmarks to any computer.  But Chrome does that anyway, even if it isn’t portable.

Hi Liz!

The best browser to use with JAWS, for me, has been a browser called:

Waterfox.

It was developed in 2012, and it is a spin off of Firefox, but it works tons better.

It can use all of the classic Firefox plugins, and it is so very fast.

JAWS never messes up in Waterfox. It is kept up to date, and it is very secure. A new update just came out.

Water fox has an interface that is almost like the old Firefox.

It has a spell check built in and everything.

It has a reading mode where you can get the clutter off the page, and read the article.

The reading mode is built in.

You just press:

Alt+CTRL+R to put a web site into reading mode.

With JAWS, I would say that Waterfox is my favorite browser.

You can just do a Google search for Waterfox.

What I like as well, is the ability to download a portable version of Waterfox.

I love running a portable version, that I keep on the computer, because you do not have to install it on the computer. Also, if you keep the portable version on the computer, you can create a short cut on the desktop just like you can with installed programs.

I hope this helps.

Take care, Liz.

Re: I am having a problem exiting Dropbox

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi Dave,
 
Dropbox has made moving the default location of the Dropbox folder a total pain in the ass!  You need to get into the Dropbox preferences, then go to the Sync tab and you'll find the, Move the Dropbox folder, dialogues there.  Before you can move the folder you need to have Dropbox turned off / not running.
 
Here's some steps to get to the Dropbox Preferences from the System Tray using Windows 7 & 10 Pro, with latest Jaws 2019, & providing you have Dropbox showing in the system tray:
1. Open the system tray with, Insert + F11.
2 Navigate to the, Dropbox folder, and press enter.
3. If you hear, Edit, press enter again, and now up arrow to, Preferences, and press enter.
4. Control + Tab, to the Sync tab, now tab quickly a few times to, Apply, now right after you hear, Apply, tab to get your, Move, dialogue / options.
Take Care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

The Dropbox folder cannot be moved in the way you suggest. I have tried your

According to information I have read on the web, the dropbox folder can only

Yes, there is a plugin for Firefox to give a sound after download completion. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus A for AddOns manager. Then TAB to the search field and type in download sound, and press ENTER.

 

Once you find download sound, TAB to the link which says add to firefox. It will come up and tell you that you need to give permission. To give permission, press ALT plus A.

 

To save a password when it asks you, press ALT plus S. If it asks you if you want to save the password, and you don’t want to save it, press ALT plus D. You must do this quickly, or you will lose your chance to save the password on that login.

Subject: Two Firefox Questions - Sounds Upon Download Completion and Activating Message

 

Hi!

 

I am using JAWS 2019 and Firefox, all the latest builds, under Windows 7.  In Firefox, how do you make it play a sound upon download completion?  Is there a plug-in for this or some setting within Firefox itself?  Also, sometimes Firefox speaks a message telling me  that some sort of action is required; like “Do you want to save the password for this website?”  How do you get to the message’s buttons (e.g., yes, no, etc.) to address the message?

 

Thanks,

Richard
