Hi,

I just tried the alt, f and then B command in chrome and it works for me, pressing the alt and F together brings up the context menu then pressing B selects the bookmarks option. Thanks Mario, this is a handy key combination to know.

It doesn't do anything in Chrome, the Alt key alone brings up the menu, there is no "File" menu and for me Alt+f In Chrome does nothing.
As far as I am concerned there simply are no quick and easy shortcuts in Chrome to select a certain bookmark.

JAWS and Canvas

Betsy Binney
 

Hi All,

 

I have a question about JAWS and the educational web based program Canvas.  I have searched and searched the Internet and am having trouble finding a list of keyboard shortcuts that work with JAWS.  I found a list but they don’t work with JAWS even using the Bypass key.  If anyone knows where I can find a list of the JAWS commands, and would share it, I would be very grateful.

 

Cheers,

Betsy

It seems to be becoming "the thing" to nest imported bookmarks in a given browser in a folder that indicates where they were imported from.  I agree that this is annoying and not something I want.

And Chrome's Bookmark Manager function is not as "multi-select and move en-masse" friendly as that in Firefox or others.  I just tried the Chrome Bookmarks manager and it's become what seems to be 100% drag and drop driven.

I almost never use bookmarks, per se, as if I start entering a URL or a distinct part of it, and it's bookmarked or I've visited it before, it virtually always shows up in one of the first several items returned by the URL search.  I point and click on the one I want but I teach my clients to type something they believe will be "kinda distinctive," arrow down then back up once (so you catch the first item returned, otherwise it seems all screen readers miss is) then if that's not it down arrow a few times to see if what you're looking for is in the returned search results.  It's typically before result 5 if it's something you use with relative frequency.

Re: Navigating Favorites With Chrome

 

Well, this is a fascinating development, first letter navigation works in the Chrome Bookmarks list whether you have a screen reader active or not, and it works just like when a screen reader is active (without narration, of course).   

If I hit Enter once sitting on a Bookmark I want to open it opens in the tab I'm currently in.  So if you know you want a page to open in a tab of its own open that tab with CTRL+T first, then follow that by ALT + Down Arrow, B then start with first letter nav.

Re: Navigating Favorites With Chrome

 

Alt+Down Arrow drops open the full Chrome menu.  If you immediately follow that by B it will open up the Bookmarks submenu which you can then Down Arrow (and/or up arrow once you're after entry number one) to go through them.  

I have not tried first letter navigation in that submenu and don't have the time at the moment (nor do I have JAWS handy right now).

Re: Navigating Favorites With Chrome

Cristóbal
 

This is one of the main reasons that's holding me back from adopting Chrome as my main browser or using it more often than now.
In Firefox, it's a super quick and easy alt plus B to the bookmarks menu and first letter navigation to whatever folder or bookmark I want.
Having a Firefox account also makes it super easy to keep everything synchronized across machines. I tried importing my Firefox bookmarks into Chrome and while they were uploaded, they're now buried in the imported bookmarks subfolder of the subfolder of the Chrome menu bar. I mean come on? How practical is that?
I know there's the view all bookmarks command in Chrome, but again, that's not really a practical solution. Sometimes, simplicity is best.
A while back, I inquired of a way to keep bookmarks synchronized across browsers, but didn't really get an answer.
The ideal set up would be to have bookmarks available across both Chrome and Firefox and maintain synchronicity, but alas. I believe there's an add-on called EverSync that does this, but as with many things, how's the accessibility and user experience. Also, I tink Everysinc is a paid service.
I've got so many subscriptions to this and that service that it begins to add up. I don't know if I want to shell out another $30 or $40 a year for this convenience.
So anyway, if there's in fact a quick and easy way to access Chrome bookmarks or if there's an add-on that does this, I'm all ears.

Re: Making JAWS load faster

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi Bill,
 
I said the steps might be different because when opening msconfig in Windows 10 and going to the start-up tab, you are told to open the Task Manager, and there it's much different than in Windows 7 where all the files to turn on or off are right there in a list in the start-up tab of Win7.  I don't recall if you turn everything off that shows in the msconfig / Start-up tab / task manager, then turn the items on in the order you want them, if they will be put in that order in the task manager of Win10.  I believe that Task Manager in Win 10 has a different ordering system than in msconfig / Start-up of Win7.

Hi Bill,

 

Although Windows 10 is a little different these steps will give you a good idea on what to do in Win 10.

 

Note: The steps below were performed running Windows 7 & JAWS versions 15 thru 18.  These steps won't work with Windows 8 or 10, & why they won't is below
my steps.
For those of you that have Jaws set to start at the Windows log-in screen, but it doesn't, this might work for you.  I looked in, msconfig, & found that
JAWS Freedom Scientific wasn't at the top of the list on the Start-up Page / Tab, so this is what I did.
1. Press, Windows key + R, to open the run dialog.
2. Type, *msconfig*, without the stars, & press enter.
3. Press, control + tab, until you get to the, Start-up Page / Tab.
4. I arrowed down the list, & unchecked any items above, JAWS Freedom Scientific, on the Start-up Page / Tab.
Note: Only uncheck the items / programs above JAWS Freedom Scientific, & nothing else.  Pay close attention to what you uncheck because you are going to
recheck these items / programs shortly.
5. Tab to the, Okay, button, press the spacebar, & tab 1 time to, Restart, & press enter to restart your computer.
6. Once your computer is booted up repeat steps 1 thru 3, & you will notice that JAWS Freedom Scientific is now at the top of the list.
7. Now, arrow down the list of items / programs on the Start-up Page / Tab, check the items / programs that you unchecked previously, & repeat step #5.
Now Jaws should start on the Windows log-in screen when your computer starts.  I did the above steps on 4 different computers, both desktop & lattop, &I'm
not going to say it works everytime, but it sure works most of the time, which I can say is a damn site better than before I followed the above steps.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Re: subject appearing first when...

 

You can definitely rearrange column order in Outlook 2016 (and earlier).   It can be done by drag and drop (and I'm just mentioning that in case anyone would want to ask an assistant to do the reshuffling since it happens so seldom).

Via Screen Reader I'd do ALT+V (View Tab), AC (Add Columns ribbon option), ALT+O (Go straight to the Show these columns in this order control).  Find the Subject column and select it, then activate the "Move Up" button once.  It should now be shown and announced ahead of the sender's identity.

Re: jaws and chrome

The most recent issue that's come up is that the new version of Chrome automatically signs you into your google account. Some people don't even realise they are signed in. Probably not a big deal to a lot of people, but it does make me, personally, feel wary, especially as my Android phone is also linked to my Google account and already bothering me somewhat with its insistence on knowing where I am and what I am doing. *grins*

I think it's difficult to get around Google and if you use Firefox or Edge and still use google.com for searching there isn't probably a lot of difference. I guess you would have to use Firefox and DuckDuckGo or strictly stick with Edge and Bing if you want to cut out Google as much as possible.

There are other reasons not to use Chrome, such as Google's questionable data slurping practices, but speed is definitely not, or should not be anyway, one of them.

Steve,
Well said, and I could not agree more. Anyone at this point that is having these type of problems with chrome I feel should consult someone who can take a look at their system, configuration, etc. Possibly a call to Microsoft accessibility services were consult with someone else’s something clearly passed in the corrupt with the system. Chrome at this point is the most popular browser by far and most people that I talk to on lists are having an excellent results with jaws

You are kidding. IE is slow, freezes and outmoded. That's with JAWS 2018.
Chrome is a whole load better.

All the best

My chrome stopped working, altogether. Using Jws 18 and 19 beta with
same results. I was told by one who knows, that the old Internet
Explorer actually works best with Jaws. Very reliable source. Turns out that I.E.
actually works very well and I'm using it for now.

Hey guys,

I write this in a jaws context because I am not sure how else to
address the issue.

I am using win10 jaws2018 and chrome;

Some pages I go too, don't allow me to use alt to open the menus,

And further, those same pages don't allow me to do a ctrl+d to add to
favorites?

It doesn't seem to matter if the window is maximized or not;



Is this a jaws issue?

Or is it strictly a chrome issue?



Can someone please advise?



Mike m.
