waterfox with jaws

netbat66
 

do you need a add on to make it accessible?
i am trying the portible version and few of the jaws options work as is.
with the virtual pc cursor onedit boxes, headings read to end etc. don’t work with jaws as is.
and why are all the help options going to the firefox web page?



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: Jaws and chess

Hi Marilyn,

You have various options for playing chess online, including email, Skype and various chat rooms. You can also play chess against the computer using a variety of free and paid software packages. Fritz is probably the best, though I'm not sure which version works best with JAWS. Winboard was a good free (though basic) alternative, which may still be available.

Assuming you're in the US, it would be worth checking out the US Braille Chess Association website, www.americanblindchess.org, which provides more details on the various online options.

Other countries (such as the UK where I am) have their own Braille Chess Associations which also run email and over-the-board tournaments, which aren't restricted to people from those countries.

Cheers,

Ed

Hello everyone,

I'm not sure where to start my search, so perhaps someone on the list can
tell me. I want to know about playing chess on-line or using the computer,
and wonder how Jaws does with facilitating this? While I play on a regular
board, I can't always find partners, and thought this would be a way round
the problem.

I was also told, though I have not been able to verify this, that there is
an actual board that can be activated using speech software. Are the on-line
games accessible for Jaws users?

Are there chess players on this list? Any information would be greatly
appreciated. If I need to find a different list for my questions, I would
appreciate references to them.

Many thanks.

Well, I tried the portable version of Waterfox, and it is completely unusable on my 32 bit Windows 7 desktop.  But at least it was easy to get rid of.  I just chucked it into the recycle bin.

Hi!

The advantages that I like with a portable version of a program, is that it does not leave residue on your computer that is not part of the program.

For example, browsers leave cookies on your computer, which are tiny apps that make web sites work better. Also, when you install a program, remnants of the program are scattered around in folders that you do not think about.

Installing a program puts it right on your hard drive, and it leaves a footprint on your computer.

With the portable program, all bookmarks, browsing history, search history, and all of that, is saved right in the unzipped portable folder.

You know that everything that browser does, is right in the unzipped folder instead of on your computer somewhere, on the hard drive.

Also, you can put a portable program on a external storage drive, and just press enter on the .exe file on that storage device  to launch the program.

I keep an SD card on my computer, and I put the portable programs on the SD card, and even put shortcuts on the desktop, because I leave the SD card in the computer.

That way, you are not taking up space on your hard drive’s storage at all.

I use this little computer with a 28 Gig SSD drive, so space is a minimum on this little gym.

You can also put the portable program on a USB pin drive, and carry it to where ever you go, and you can launch it on any computer anywhere.

That is the biggest reason why I like portable programs. That is why NVDA is so awesome, because you can put it on a pin drive, and take it where ever you go, and use NVDA on any computer.

That is the power of portable programs.

Have a great one, and please ask any questions.

Re: reset MS word to default

Bill White
 

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.

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.

reset MS word to default

Michael Munn
 

Dear Fellow Jaws users, This is Michael. I don't know what I did but I messed up my word to the point that I can't use them. I need a key command to set it as `default. 
Are there a keyboard command for this issue in Word? All comments are greatly appreciate it.
Thanks 
Best Regards 
Michael Munn

Re: Microsoft edge is dead.

My partner is using Edge as her default browser and yesterday when I was working on her system, there was a notice that came up telling Edge users to switch to Internet Explorer as their default.

I have been very happy with Chrome and never took the time to play with Edge a whole lot. I tinkered a couple of times but was not impressed and saw no reason to leave Chrome as by far it is the most common browser of choice

Incredible! They admit how unpopular Edge is and they say this about IE!

Microsoft is losing my respect, especially after breaking Skype as well.

Re: The best internet browser to use with JAWS.

Well, I know that Waterfox is a 64 bit browser.

However, I don’t know if works on 32 bit computer systems.

The plain old favorites is there. I am not sure about web visum.

I don’t think you can use that with Waterfox!

Have a great one.

Does Waterfox work on 32 bit machines?  And do Webvisum, Plain Old Favorites and Navvigational Sounds work with it?

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.

I am going to be receiving some in depth computer training in preparation for vocational training services. Since Internet Explorer is no longer secure, what is the best browser out there that is JAWS friendly? I have used fire fox in the past, but as of late I have heard mixed views about fire fox.

Waterfox, was about Microsoft ...

Richard Turner
 

Well, I just installed Waterfox and am not finding it the oasis that some seem to have.

 

The first thing that popped up and then went away was something about accessibility only being partially something or other.

The settings seem rather oddly laid out.

 

Since I am finding Firefox to work just fine.

I think I will uninstall Waterfox and stick with Firefox.

 

It is nice there are lots of options and we are not stuck with just one browser.

It could be me, but I also never got on well with Chrome.

So, it is probably me.
