Re: Making JAWS announce shortcut sequences

Bill White
 

Hi, Brian. It might not have to do with Access keys. It might have to do with the level of verbocity in JAWS. Try it with the following checked:

 

Tutor Messages Announce Menu and Control Help radio button checked

 

This setting is in Basic Settings in JAWS.

Update:  Sadly, tweaking the access keys settings to all didn't change a thing.

I know darned well that at one time when you traversed the ribbon the "end of shortcut" sequence for the control on which you've landed was announced.  I rely on that as far as a student's ability to keep adding to their own "greatest hits" list as they find controls they use all the time.  It doesn't help to know if, for instance, in Microsoft Word that the font is in the Home Ribbon, Font Group, and that you can get to it "the long way" each time rather than knowing that if you hit ALT+H,FF will instantly take you there.  I need that FF to somehow be announced when you land on that control, and NVDA still does it by default.  I know JAWS can, too.

1809 and creating restore point

Onwardbob
 

Don't know what I'm doing wrong but I can't create a restore point. Using
J-2018 and W-1809 I can get in to the create restore point but it shows
recovery off and I can't uncheck this. In configure, disable system
protection is also checked and I can't uncheck it either. Can someone give
me step by step instructions? Thank, this one has me feeling dumb...s

I never realized it before, because I generally go directly to my Gmail to fill in text boxes such as signature. It carries through to Windows Mail and isn’t a problem for me. But I do realize another annoying challenge: Some links will not open in Windows Mail, and I have to go into Gmail to open them. Do any of you have this problem?

 

Also, have any of you had the experience where you open a message in mail and JAWS shows it as a blank page? When I unload JAWS and start it again,. The message is right there. It doesn’t happen every time.

Hi all!

I am a Windows 10 insider, and I love Windows 10 1809 with JAWS 2019!

In the mail app, JAWS 2019 now reads the suggestions as you type an email address into the edit box.

JAWS 2019 is very snappy in the settings app.

You will have to turn off the background apps you do not want to run.

Narrator, is much improved in Edge!

I just used that combination to listen to YouTube videos!

With Narrator, the Twitter app is almost accessible. We are getting close.

The emoji in Windows 10 is very accessible with Narrator!

JAWS2019, reads progress bars in downloads in Chrome much better in Windows 10 1809.

Re: NewW10 update

Hi, Morey. One thing which could have happened is that the updates failed to install. One thing you can do is to go to your "update history" in the Settings app, under Update and Security. Press ENTER on the
View Update History link.

Once it opens, press JAWS key plus ALT plus W, and review the results. This is where you can find out if all the updates which tried to install were successful.

Yes, Quickbooks is not free software and the scripts which you need for it to
be accessible cost several hundred Dollars. No good solution for something
like this will most likely be free.
There is also Quickbooks Online which is a subscription service. It is quite
accessible at this point, apparently even more so on an iOS device and
Quickbooks takes accessibility quite serious and they are working constantly
on making the service work even better. Keep in mind, though, that Quickbooks
is primarily an accounting package and while just as with any good accounting
package you can track customers and suppliers, if you don't know at least some
basics of accounting it maybe difficult to learn it and there will definitely
be a good bit of learning involved and you might want to consider inquiring
about Quickbooks courses.

I know this might sound complicated, but I'm wondering, do any of you JAWS
members out there know if there's a software that works with JAWS, with which
I can manage customer accounts? When I start my company making products and
services that are accessible for people of all abilities, I want to be able to
have an accessible software for managing customers' information, such as
billing addresses, shipping addresses, order numbers, and receipts, for when
they want to purchase a product or service from my company. I guess you could
say I'm thinking of a software for management of customers' orders. Are there
any good business management softwares out there that work well with JAWS?

FEMA is about to send a 'Presidential Alert' to millions of U.S. phones Zack
Whittaker@zackwhittaker / 2 hours ago fema-hero

In a few hours, millions of Americans will get a test emergency

"Presidential Alert" message sent to their phone - a simulation in case

the president ever needs to reach to entire country in a national

emergency.

At 2:18pm ET, the Federal Emergency Management Agency will send a

short alert, saying: "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency

Alert System. No action is needed." A few minutes later, televisions and

radio broadcasts will briefly suspend and a similar message will run.

The test was originally scheduled for mid-September but was delayed

until Wednesday after Hurricane Florence hit the east coast.

This will be the first time the government has conducted a nationwide

test of the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system, according to a FEMA

advisory.

Emergency warnings used to be confined to television and radio

broadcasts, sounding out that familiar terrifying high-pitch tone. But as

consumers moved away from televisions and radio to mobile devices

that are always with us, the government began working on a system to

get emergency alerts in our hands.

Since it was devised in 2006 under the Bush administration, the Wireless

Emergency Alert (WEA) has slowly rolled out across the U.S. to form a

new state-of-the-art emergency alert system. Like the legacy system, the

WEA is designed to alert Americans to bad weather and missing children

at a local level directly to your phone.

But now FEMA wants to test a third alert - the presidential alert - which

will send a message to every switched-on phone with cell service across

the U.S. at the same time.

This won't be a text message sent to your phone, experts say. Instead of

sending text messages that would flood the networks, the alerts are sent

directly over the cellular network.

Although today is a test, any future presidential alert can be sent solely

at the discretion of the president and can be issued for any reason. And,

unlike other alerts, Americans cannot opt-out of receiving a presidential

alert.

Some have expressed concern that the system could be abused for

political reasons. Others worry that the system could be hacked.

Tom Crane, an expert in emergency management at Everbridge, a critical

communications provider, told TechCrunch that the WEA has "extra

safeguards" in place before sending an alert. An authorized user has to

enter a complex password that has two elements - a private key and a

keystore password - which are unique for each alerting authority.

"It's not as easy as 'someone left their computer unattended so i'm going

to send a Wireless Emergency Alert'," he said.

The emergency alert system is far from perfect. Earlier this year, panic

spread on Hawaii after an erroneous alert warned residents of a "ballistic

missile threat inbound." The message said, "this is not a drill." The false

warning was amid the height of tensions between the US and North9:20 AM

Korea, which at the time was regularly test-firing rockets used for its

nuclear missile program.

it was mentioned:

"Although today is a test, any future presidential alert can be sent
solely at the discretion of the president and can be issued for any reason."

In short, no.

Because it has been dubbed a Presidential Alert, some have claimed that
Trump himself will be sending out a personalized message.

However, FEMA said the alert system meant to be used in case of an
emergency, and Wednesday’s Presidential Alert will only feature a brief
text pertaining directly the test.

There is also a law prohibiting Trump or any president from abusing the
system. The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System Modernization Act
of 2015 specifically states that the warning system must only be used to
alert the public of a potential disaster, so if Trump were to use the
presidential alert for anything other than it’s intended use, he would
be breaking the law.

“Except to the extent necessary for testing the public alert and warning
system, the public alert and warning system shall not be used to
transmit a message that does not relate to a natural disaster, act of
terrorism, or other man-made disaster or threat to public safety.” the
act states.

“The message is not coming directly from the President,” a FEMA
spokesman tells TIME. “The message is going to be sent on behalf of the
president. The president or anyone that he designates will be advised by
the staff to activate the warning and then issue it to the public, at
that time the designee would contact FEMA at our operations center and
tell us to activate the warning.”

Re: Accessible Business Management Software

Many moons ago, I recall a similar thread popping up regarding accounting software on an old list, Someone recommended Cash Manager: https://cashmanager.io/us/
Indeed, if I remember correctly a Cash Manager rep even popped up to explain that they take care to insure that their application is accessible. https://cashmanager.io/us/accessibility
I know Quickbooks has the name recognition and majority market share, but it can't hurt to try an alternative. After all, numbers are numbers and everything else to a degree is just noise.
I don't use the product since my wife handles the books, so I can't speak as to how accessible Cash Manager is or if they've maintained their commitment to accessibility, but there you go.
As Sieghard points out though, unless you have a foundation or some sort of knowledge in accounting, it really won't matter what you choose.

Yes, Quickbooks is not free software and the scripts which you need for it to be accessible cost several hundred Dollars. No good solution for something like this will most likely be free.
There is also Quickbooks Online which is a subscription service. It is quite accessible at this point, apparently even more so on an iOS device and Quickbooks takes accessibility quite serious and they are working constantly on making the service work even better. Keep in mind, though, that Quickbooks is primarily an accounting package and while just as with any good accounting package you can track customers and suppliers, if you don't know at least some basics of accounting it maybe difficult to learn it and there will definitely be a good bit of learning involved and you might want to consider inquiring about Quickbooks courses.

Don't store credit card numbers on your computer!! If you do, you will have to be pci compliant and that is a pain in the neck. Use a processing service instead, like stripe.com -- for a low volume operation this is quite nice.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I know this might sound complicated, but I'm wondering, do any of you JAWS members out there know if there's a software that works with JAWS, with which I can manage customer accounts? When I start my company making products and services that are accessible for people of all abilities, I want to be able to have an accessible software for managing customers' information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, order numbers, and receipts, for when they want to purchase a product or service from my company. I guess you could say I'm thinking of a software for management of customers' orders. Are there any good business management softwares out there that work well with JAWS?
