Good, Evening, All this is Alexander Kaiser with a JAWS 2019 question. Has anyone used the Medisoft Billing software Platform with JAWS 2019? How is accessibility with JAWS and Medisoft billing’s platform? I will be using this software for classes in college and I definitely need to know if JAWS 2019 is compatible and, if someone can write jaws scripts for this. Please E-Mail me off list at MISTER.ALEXANDER.SCOTT.KAISER.I.1.0.3.0.1.9.9.0.99@.... Thank you, for your time, and, consideration, and, I hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

Mr. Alexander Scott Kaiser

P,.,S,., Thank you, and, I hope you have a very spectacular day!

Okay, I thought you were referring to the forms that they ask you to fill out after a disability help desk session. Sorry about that.

Hello,

Microsoft Forms is a web app that I think is part of an office 365 subscription. I’m not sure if there is a downloadable desktop version or not. I’m not sure whether or not you can utilize Microsoft Forms if you don’t have an office 365 subscription, but perhaps just have a Microsoft account. In any case, you can create surveys, quizzes, etc. I’m guessing it is similar in purpose to Google forms.

Thank you,

Heather

Re: Adding alt tags to images?

Hi Anne,

 

If your web site is using WordPress, you can easily add Alt Text using the WordPress editor, at the time you upload the image.

 

All the best

Hi,

The Alt tags I am talking about are what is seen by any decent modern screen reader when browsing images ont he web. I have an image to upload, and I'd like to add an alt tag to it since it only currently has a Jaws label, wich is nice for my local Jaws and computer use, but probably won't help anyone else much on the web.

So, would Word be the easiest way for me to add an Alt tag to this image that all oculd read before uploading it? Or would some other tool be better?

Thanks for any advice,
~Ann

            Are you asking about adding Alt Text for an image using Microsoft Word?  If so, it's a cinch, as it is under most HTML editors, too.

            If you're referring to something after the fact then it becomes significantly more complicated and murkier.

Re: Creating Accessible Controls

 

The exact technique depends on whether the control is a legacy control or an ActiveX control.   I strongly favor legacy controls because they're easier to deal with (at least they are to me) but not all controls are available as legacy controls, e.g., buttons.

I also generally create forms that are heavily text box and checkbox centric, and the accessibility is in the status bar help text, which is what the screen reader reads when it lands on the field.  I also copy same over to the Help Key text, too, so in case someone gets distracted or needs to hear it again they can just hit F1.

Creating Accessible Controls

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I've discovered there's a way to create controls like buttons, sliders, and radio buttons using Microsoft Word. However, I'm not sure how I would make them accessible to screenreaders like JAWS. They seem to be spoken, for example, as "forms.textbox. 11.50 inches wide by 0.38 inches high. 2.65 inches wide by 0.66 inches high"

Notice for Windows 10 users: you cannot instlal and run JAWS inside Windows Sandbox in April 2019 Update

 

Hi all,

A companion message has been sent to Win10 Forum for Screen Reader Users so it can be circulated widely and reported to Vispero. If you have further questions or comments, please either reply to me directly or on Win10 forum (not here):

 

Advisory: you cannot install and run JAWS inside Windows Sandbox in Windows 10 Version 1903

 

Background: Windows 10 Version 1903 (April 2019 Update) introduces Windows Sandbox, a container-like virtual environment for running fresh versions of Windows 10. This is meant to isolate programs from harming the outside environment, as well as a test environment for unknown software. For screen reader users, this is a handy environment to test new screen reader releases inside a clean Windows 10 installation without touching what you know and love.

 

In order to use Windows Sandbox:

 

  1. Must be running Windows 10 Pro Version 1903 or higher (Pro, Enterprise, Education, etc.).
  2. Virtualization features must be turned on from firmware (BIOS/UEFI).
  3. Windows Sandbox must be enabled from Programs and Features.

 

Problem: one of the limitations of Windows Sandbox is that it can’t cope with installers that asks for a system reboot. If this happens, the host running Windows Sandbox will report that the remote system has closed the connection and offer to send feedback about it.

 

Current problem: the above problem description applies to JAWS. Because JAWS installer requires a reboot, you cannot install and run JAWS inside a Windows Sandbox guest. In fact, any screen reader that comes with an installer which asks for a reboot cannot run inside Windows Sandbox in version 1903.

 

Next steps: please let Vispero and other affected screen reader vendors know about this issue in hopes of coming up with a solution.

 

Additional note: in the meantime, you can use Narrator and screen readers that does not require a reboot (NVDA included) inside Windows Sandbox. The author has tested Windows Sandbox with Narrator, NVDA, and JAWS.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Yahoo! Fantasy Sports: Any Nonvisual Way To Edit Pre-Draft Player Rankings?

 

Kane,

           I am not an HTML code geek, so that would not help.  I tend to "trial and error" things to get to a solution.  Sometimes being able to see what's happening or not happening using screen reader commands is what clues me in to what the workaround most likely is.

Windows 10 will have no support from Microsoft after January 14 2020 and even you upgrade and/or install Google Chrome your version of JAWS
13 will still not work as expected as there has been a lot of changes to Google Chrome and more changes are coming.

Kane,

            Is this something that can be played with on a demo page without being logged in or joining something?

            I'd be curious to play with it to see what I can determine.   Although I have no interest in sports, I do have an interest in finding accessibility workarounds and stuff like this has to be used on more than the page you mention, but I'd have no idea where to find it otherwise for experimentation.

Re: Big problem please help!!

You have to download the 52 set up file then immediately physically disconnect your computer from the internet by unplugging the cable. The reason for this is that the second you install Firefox 52, it will seek to install the latest upgrade and as you know, it is not compatible with JAWS 13. Before you re-connect the internet cable, run the set-up file and install 52 and run Firefox. Go to settings and turn off Automatically update. Then shut down and re-connect your internet and start your computer. This should fix the problem for you. HTH

just a heads up: after installing 52, immediately disconnect from the
Internet, otherwise Firefox will detect you are at an earlier version
and automatically upgrade to the recent version, and then you'll have to
uninstall and reinstall it, being sure to disconnect before setting 52
to never update.

or as Richard said, consider upgrading JAWS to 2019 which will be
compatible with Firefox 65.

Yahoo! Fantasy Sports: Any Nonvisual Way To Edit Pre-Draft Player Rankings?

Kane Brolin
 

I am frustrated every year at this time, because as I prepare to
indulge my Fantasy Baseball habit, I never can seem to manipulate MLB
player rankings on the Yahoo! platform to change my personal preferred
rank order as the league I am in prepares for an auto-draft.

I have tried JAWS 2018 both with Firefox and with Internet Explorer.
I have not yet attempted this via Chrome or via a connected Mobile
Apple device. I know I somehow must click and drag, but the JAWS
Cursor does not seem to work within the list of default players that
Yahoo! has ranked by default.

I get that this is a specialized recreational interest, so I won't
bother to explain Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball is about to anyone who does
not already relate to MLB. But those on this list who share my
interest or my frustration know who you are.

Thanks in advance for your help.
