how to set home page on firefocks

Val Paul
 

Can anyone tell me how to set my homepage on Firefocks?

Also, when on a website, how to stop Firefocks from saying every time, "would you like firefocks to save your password"?

Cheers!


Val.

Marvin:

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you.

You can hit the applications key which is usually the key just left of the right control key.  Then arrow down to Junk.  Hit enter and it will give you options including adding the sender to the block senders list.

Latest Skype and JAWS?

Jim Portillo
 

Hello,

I’ve not used Skype for a while, as I’ve been using Zoom more. However, I will now have to use Skype with someone. I’ve upgraded to the latest Desktop version but wonder how well JAWS works with it. Is there a list of the most common JAWS commands that anyone has or knows how to find? I’d appreciate getting such a list.
Thanks.

For some reason I don’t have either the time or the energy to figure out just at the moment, the preview videos played fine in chrome, but the actual videos for the course did not. IE, however, chomps ‘em down like gangbusters. Don’t ask me why, but that’s my limited experience. Have not yet tested with firefox, as Firefox does not like the, ahem, workaround I need to employ to be able to do it from work.

Interestingly interesting. I’ve had reasonable success getting videos to play nice using latest IE and JAWS 18. The player itself takes some, er, creative navigating, but once autoplay’s turned off it’s actually tolerable. What parts of it gave you issues, out of curiosity?

How do you unblock a sender?  Or, check your blocked senders list.  Like with the old Skype, sometimes you have to re-visit your blocked senders list because it is out dated.

Looking for a jaws-friendly mindmap app

Delaunay Christophe
 

Hi all,

 

In order to write down thought during brainstorming, (collaborative or not), I am looking for some jaws-friendly mind mapper.

 

I tried FreePlane, (https://www.freeplane.org/wiki/index.php/Home), but I did not feel lucky enough with it since jaws keeps really poor track of the mind map editing in FreePlane.

 

Does anyone know a good FreePlane equivalent which is more accessible please?

 

Many thanks in advance. Have a nice day. Chris D

Re: Keyboard arrow Echo in JAWS 19

Bill White
 

Hi, Barbara. I believe it is JAWS 2019 you installed. To turn off Phonetic announcements,

1. Press JAWS key plus six on the numbers row, just above the letter Y.
2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load the default JAWS configuration.
3. Type the following letters with no spaces between them:

p h o

4. Arrow down through the search results looking for the words

When pausing after character navigation, speak character phonetically

5. Tap the space bar until you hear the word Never.
6. TAB to the OK button, and press ENTER.

Now, as you arrow through a document and pause, you will no longer hear the phonetic announcements.

Hi Everyone,

I installed JAWS 19 on a Windows 7 computer and a Windows 10 laptop. I have not tested this on the laptop yet, but on the Windows 7 computer, I get an echo using the arrow keys.

Example. I use the right arrow and it lands on the letter b. After a few seconds I hear bravo. This is a minor thing, but I would like to turn that off. Any ideas how?

Thanks in advance for any help.

A follow up: Related to the email address announcement bug in Jaws 2019

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

A follow up to my issue outlined below. After a back and forth with Vispero tech support, it looks like while my issue was identified, a fix is going to have to wait for the next JFW update if that.

See:

Wanted to let you know this was sent to development.  It may be fixed in the next version of JAWS, as they already found a fix for newer versions of Office; we will see if this will apply to your version as well.

My concern and I expressed the same is with the language used. “may” and “we will see”. It’s not like I’m running Office 2003 and I reiterated to them that this issue, be it the autocomplete email address bug nor the calendar appointment subject field bug was not an issue in JFW 2018. I would hope/expect that a fix is forthcoming.

So basically for right now, if anyone else is dealing with the same issue, you have a choice to either live with the autocomplete email address bug or using the fix provided by Vispero and live without Jaws speaking the subject field info in calendar appointments. I find the missing subject field stuff to be more disruptive for my needs so am living with the autocomplete bug for now.

Cristóbal

Hi.

 

You can use JAWS’s new-ish OCR feature to recognise text in photos. It works at least some of the time. The easiest way is to go to the file’s location using File Explorer, activate the context menu with the applications key or shift-f10, and pick the “recognise with JAWS option”. Wait a little bit, and a window should pop up that you can navigate. If the software is able to recognise any text, it will be displayed in that window.
