Yes, there was one place it didn't talk, but when I took a picture with Voice Dream Scanner, it was just a screen saying don't turn off your computer.

-
That has nothing to do with the behavior of the Reset function (Settings, Update & Security, Recovery Pane, Reset this PC section, Get Started button).  It's a part of Windows 10, whether that's what came with the computer or not.

Depending on which version of Windows 10 you're running there can be certain differences below the level that the user deals with, but that's not relevant to it being accessible with Narrator once Reset is far enough along (which isn't far) to allow Narrator to be invoked.

Re: Reading Kindle Books using Jaws

Thanks, I finally got it working.  When I downloaded the Kindle for PC file it did not install properly.  I uninstalled and reinstalled it twice and now it is working as expected.  The Kindle app is accessible and I am able to read my books from my computer.

 

Thanks for all your help.

You will enjoy a much more accessible reading experience if you

download the Kindle for PC program, which works very well with Jaws.

There is no cost for the program.

The web experience is quite dismal, but Kindle for PC works well.

Hi,

 

I’m using jaws 2020, with outlook 365, and wish to change my default calendar, without affecting my default email account.

 

I’d also like to eliminate the, “this computer only” option in the calendar.

 

Can anyone help?

Re: Accessible EPUB reader for Windows 10

Joe
 

I want to thank you for the help. I found  Q Read to have a very accessible interface when using Jaws 2020. I wanted to share another app that I found on the Windows 10 store called Thorium Reader. Like Q Read the controls are labeled and key navigation works. The installation from the Store app was accessible and trouble free.

Reading Kindle Books using Jaws

Hi Group,

 

Does anyone have any hands on experience reading Amazon Kindle books using Jaws on a PC.  I am accessing read.amazon.com using Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Firefox  with no success.   I find that Kindle is slow and often unresponsive.    

 

Any hot keys or keystrokes to help me navigate pages and chapters would be much appreciated.  The only keystrokes I found was pressing the letter U to jump to the next link and the letter N to do something else.  Neither of these keystrokes actually help me navigate to the next page or next chapter.  I would be find if it would allow me to read continuously, but I cannot seem to be able to do that either.

 

I have contacted Freedom Scientific and all they said was that Jaws was supposed to be accessible with a screen reader, but could not offer any specific. The standard keystrokes to navigate webpages or documents do not work with Kindle.

 

I spoke to Amazon support and they had no idea how to navigate Kindle using a screen reader.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

List Rules - Wed, 07/01/2020 #cal-notice

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

List Rules

When:
Wednesday, 1 July 2020
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
