Focus on the item. Press ctrl-insert-numpad / (the simulated left mouse button) to "pick up" the item. Move to the desired location, and perform that keystroke again.

This might not work reliably for you. I don't know this software you mentioned, but you might want to see if there is an alternative way to perform the same action. Have you tried the standard cut and paste? Where do you get the items to drag from anyway? File explorer?

Have a look through the software documentation and see if you can pick up any clues.

Hello,
My name is Hunter, and I am new here. I have a question that I hope you can help me with. I run an internet radio station, and my streaming provider uses centovacast for the server. It has an auto dj feature, but when you want to add songs into a particular playlist, you have to drag it from your media folder, into the playlist. I was wondering if anyone knows an accessible way I can do that. Right now, I am using sighted assistance to do that. I hope you can help. Thanks.

I assume you've tried, and copy and paste doesn't work. Anyway, here's a snippet from the JAWS help file:

Drag and Drop (CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH)
This command is used to drag items from one location and drop them in another. Position the JAWS Cursor on the item you wish to move and press CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH. You can leave the JAWS Cursor active, or you can switch to the PC Cursor. JAWS will keep speaking as you navigate. Once you have positioned the JAWS or PC Cursor in the location to which you would like to move the item, press CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH again, and the item will be moved to the position of the active cursor.

Re: I forgot how to do something

Dean Martineau
 

The showing of format markers is an optional Word feature. Mostly, it is undesirable to show them.

There are two ways to toggle the showing of these format markers. The keystroke ctrl+shift+8 on the number row toggles them all on and off. I think when this gets turned on accidentally, the user may have pressed this keystroke by mistake. Press it again and see if that solves the problem.

The other way is to go into Word options with alt+f, t. You then have a list of possible categories. Display is the first, so tab to change those settings. Each of the individual format indicator has its own check box, so tab through the page and ensure that each is set the way you want it.

Hi, Jim. Here are three different methods for stopping space markers and paragraph markers from being spoken.

Two Alternate Ways To Stop Announcement of Paragraph And Space Markers


1. Press CONTROL SHIFT 8 (on the numbers row.


Second Way:

Press ALT plus H, followed by 8 (on the numbers row)


Third Way To Stop Announcement of Paragraphs And Spaces


press ALT, then F for the file ribbon, then T for options dialog.
Type D or arrow to select the Display category and press TAB until you get to the "Show these formatting marks" on the screen section.
Make sure the following are unchecked (press the spacebar to check or uncheck and continue to TAB to the next setting):

Tab characters check box
Spaces check box
Paragraph marks check box
Show all formatting marks check box

the last one, the Show all formatting marks check box, is important to uncheck.
keep pressing TAB to and SPACEBAR on the OK button.

Dear Listers:

 

I am using the latest update to JAWS 2018 and am also using Windows 10.

 

Ever since I downloaded the latest JAWS update I have not been able to address an envelope using MS Word.  The version of Word I am using is Word 2010.  Whenever I get into Word I first arrow over to the Mailings tab.  When I find it I tab until I hear JAWS say, “Create an Envelope.”  I hit the Enter key.  The forwarding address dialog pops up.  I enter the address.  I tab once, but after the second tab I hear JAWS say, “MSO Generic Container.”  JAWS will crash, and in order to get it to speak again I have to shut down and then boot up my computer all over again.  I tried to address an envelope using an older version of JAWS and had no trouble at all.  No “MSO Generic Container,” dialog at all.  This leads me to wonder if it is a bug in JAWS’s latest update.  I wonder what this dialog even means.  Have any of you seen this dialog in MS Word?  If so, what did you do about it?

List Rules - Sat, 9/1/18 #cal-notice

main@jfw.groups.io Calendar <noreply@...>
 

List Rules

When:
Saturday, 1 September 2018
12:00am to 1:00am
(GMT-04:00) America/New York

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin

I have found very few sites where it would not work.

Another thing you can do is start logging into a website.  When you get to the password field, assuming 1Password is not open already, go to the system tray and arrow down to 1Password. Hit enter.

You should be given the option to generate a password.

It generates it and puts it on the clipboard.

You could then manually create a login record in 1Password and include the new password.

I’ll say a couple of things about using Windows, then I can add more once I’m sure what platform you are using.

 

I go to a new web page where I want to create a login.

I fill in a user name and password.  If I hit the Login button, it should invoke the mini version of 1Password.

If necessary, 1Password will ask you to enter the 1Password password.(Sorry for that strange statement)

It should ask if you want to save this login, and it will suggest a name for it.

You should then get a button that says Save or something similar to that.

 

Another way to invoke the mini 1Password on a website is control-alt-backslash.

 

To open sites I’ve already set up in 1Password, I go to the full program.

You can search for a site or arrow down through them.

Hitting enter on one should start the login process.

For thelife of me, I can’t figure out 1password.

Can somebody give a quick step by step overview?

I am trying to use the Chrome extension.

Once I fill out the username and password, I open the 1password menu from the toolbar, where I get a suggestion. For the sake of this example, I went to Applevis.com

I don’t know how to save this suggestion. When I’m looking at the 1password help, it says login first, then save your login from 1password, but I can’t find a save option there.

What am I doing wrong?

Given the features of 1password, I would like to make it work if possible, but not at the expense of running extra circles. I could just type it up on my iPhone but that defeats the purpose.

I will again recommend Password Safe, which is still 100% accessible, open source, and has both an Android and iOS clone named PasswdSafe.

It can generate passwords, do auto fill in, taking you straight to the website triggered from within Password Safe itself, and you can choose to use cloud storage for your encrypted password safe file if you wish to be able to have one master file that's accessed from multiple devices and always up-to-date on all of them.

And you can't beat free.

Re: accessible password generators

Jerry Berrier <jerry.berrier@...>
 

I don’t recall having a problem getting the secret code when I first set 1Password up, although my memory is rather short.

For what it’s worth, from the Windows program, you can copy the code to the clipboard by going to Accounts, then arrow down to the name of your vault. Once in there, arrow down to where it shows part of your code. If you open that submenu, you can copy the code to the clipboard.

 

My only complaint about 1Passsword initially was that I had trouble finding clear documentation that explained how it works.

The info is in the help section, but it took me a while to understand it.

So far I found 1Password less than accessible when it came to the getting started part. I was able to sign up for a trial of their family plan no problem, but once I had done this and logged in on myt laptop using Chrome I saw on the site that in order to set up the Windows app and other apps or log in on other computers you had to download what they called their emergency kit which contains a secret key you need for this. No matter what I tried I could not do so, then I asked one of my sighted employees and he said when you click on this link a pop-up appears with a download button. Once he clicked it a PDF downloaded in a second which contained the information needed.

I will continue to give 1Password a good try for the next 4 weeks and hope I find it will work better now that it’s set up.

It should ask if you want to save this login, and it will suggest a name for it.

You should then get a button that says Save or something similar to that.

 

Another way to invoke the mini 1Password on a website is control-alt-backslash.

 

To open sites I’ve already set up in 1Password, I go to the full program.

You can search for a site or arrow down through them.

Hitting enter on one should start the login process.

For thelife of me, I can’t figure out 1password.

Can somebody give a quick step by step overview?

I am trying to use the Chrome extension.

Once I fill out the username and password, I open the 1password menu from the toolbar, where I get a suggestion. For the sake of this example, I went to Applevis.com

I don’t know how to save this suggestion. When I’m looking at the 1password help, it says login first, then save your login from 1password, but I can’t find a save option there.

What am I doing wrong?

Given the features of 1password, I would like to make it work if possible, but not at the expense of running extra circles. I could just type it up on my iPhone but that defeats the purpose.

Thank you:

Tom

I will again recommend Password Safe, which is still 100% accessible, open source, and has both an Android and iOS clone named PasswdSafe.

It can generate passwords, do auto fill in, taking you straight to the website triggered from within Password Safe itself, and you can choose to use cloud storage for your encrypted password safe file if you wish to be able to have one master file that's accessed from multiple devices and always up-to-date on all of them.

And you can't beat free.

I just went to a site for the first time in Firefox. It asked for a user name and password. When I hit Log In, 1Password automatically opened and asked for my 1Password login.

I entered that and then tabbed to save new login.

If that’s not happening, it’s possible your browser extension is not working properly.

Thank you Gerry.

My problem is that I do have an account on a site, but no 1password record yet.

Instead of having to type one in from scratch, how can I just go to a site, login and have 1password remember my existing login info?

Thank you!

Tom

I have found very few sites where it would not work.

Another thing you can do is start logging into a website.  When you get to the password field, assuming 1Password is not open already, go to the system tray and arrow down to 1Password. Hit enter.

You should be given the option to generate a password.

It generates it and puts it on the clipboard.

You could then manually create a login record in 1Password and include the new password.

Ideally I'd use iOS and Windows/Chrome.

So far I only tried it on Windows, maybe I did go to sites which didn't work with 1password? I did not get any popup once I pressed login. Let me try with a few more sites.

I use it on my iPhone and also with Firefox and Chrome on Windows.

I’ll say a couple of things about using Windows, then I can add more once I’m sure what platform you are using.

 

I go to a new web page where I want to create a login.

I fill in a user name and password.  If I hit the Login button, it should invoke the mini version of 1Password.

Re: accessible password generators

 

So far I found 1Password less than accessible when it came to the getting started part. I was able to sign up for a trial of their family plan no problem, but once I had done this and logged in on myt laptop using Chrome I saw on the site that in order to set up the Windows app and other apps or log in on other computers you had to download what they called their emergency kit which contains a secret key you need for this. No matter what I tried I could not do so, then I asked one of my sighted employees and he said when you click on this link a pop-up appears with a download button. Once he clicked it a PDF downloaded in a second which contained the information needed.

I will continue to give 1Password a good try for the next 4 weeks and hope I find it will work better now that it’s set up.
