Re: Forcing Google Chrome to open PDFs with Adobe

Hi Cher,
 
I'm late to this thread and I'm sorry if I'm repeating something that has already been mentioned.  Try having the PDF files downloaded so you can read them with Adobe instead of Chrome opening them, steps are below.
1. Press, Alt + F, to open the Chrome context menu, and up arrow to, Settings, and press enter.  Or press, Alt + F, then press the letter, S, to open the menu / settings.
2. Tab to, Privacy & Security link, press enter, then tab to Site Settings link, press enter.
3. Now tab 25 times or so to, link PDF Documents, press enter, tab 1 time to, Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome Toggle button, and press your spacebar so that Jaws reports, Pressed Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome Toggle button.
Note:  It's very important that you hear the word, PRESSED, because this means this setting is turned on.
 
 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Cher, 

Also open Adobe and then navigate to Edit > Preferences > from the left column select General ,
Under this you'll find a button that says "Set as Default PDF Handler" and this must be selected.
Select OK at the bottom and you're good to go.

Hi,

 

To open the PDF in Adobe instead of Chrome follow the steps below

 

Press ALT + F to open chrome menu and scroll down to settings.
Tab to "Privacy and security" hit enter.
Tab to "Site Settings" and Enter
Now tab down under Permissions and keep scrolling down until you get PDF documents
Use to space bar to toggle ON "Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome"

 

This will download the PDF files instead of opening it directly in your browser. 

And from the downloads you can open these pdf files with Adobe.

Re: use of Jump to Line feature in web pages

Mike B
 


Hi David,
 
If you want practice using the, Jump to line, feature you can do this on any webpage pretty much.  Let's say you go to, JoeBlow.com, and you're downarrowing or however you navigate just stop on any line, and press the letter, J, and you'll hear Jaws report the following,
 
Jump To Line Jump To Line dialog  Enter Line Number (1 to 126): edit
 
Now press the say line command, Insert + uparrow, or the, down arrow key, to hear what line number you're on.  So let's say that this is a line that has a mouseover thingy on it and you want to come back to it another time during this same session.  You would make note of the line number, then when you wanted to come back to this line you would press the letter, J, and enter the page number and press enter.  Now you could press the letter, J, then again press, Insert + up arrow, or downarrow key to verify you're on the correct line number, then press escape to get out of the line number edit field / dialogue.
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Re: Forcing Google Chrome to open PDFs with Adobe

Hello,

I think that the easiest way to download a PDF to your computer from Chrome or any other browser so you can read it in Acrobat Reader is to simply hit Control S when you are on the browser's PDF viewer. This will open the standard Save As dialog box, from which you can choose the save location on your PC.  Regarding the previous post on changing your default PDF viewer in your PC settings, that works only for PDFs already on your PC, not ones opened on the web.

David

Re: Using iTunes with JAWS

CJ &AA MAY
 

I only use it at a basic level.

When iTunes opens, you are offered four lists through which you can arrow.

 

The first is an alphabetical list of genre choices, starting with all. You can arrow through these choices, so if you are only looking for classical pieces, you would arrow down to that genre and the following two lists would only present music from this genre.

 

You can then tab to the second list, which is an alphabetical list of artists, starting with All.

 

The third list would contain albums/songs by your chosen artist. You may have several albums by your preferred artist, in which case you would arrow down to the preferred album.

 

Lastly, you will now have a list of the songs on that album.

 

If you just tab through these list without making any adjustments, leaving All as the default, then when you reach the final list, what you will have is a complete list of the music you hold in your iTunes folders.

Subject: Re: Forcing Google Chrome to open PDFs with Adobe

 

I’ve had no problem getting Chrome to open PDF files in Adobe. Here’s how I do it in Windows 10:

 

  1. Press the windows key – you should be in the Search dialog box of the Start Menu.
  2. Type “default” (without the quotes) – and Jaws should say ‘default apps’. If it doesn’t, arrow down till you hear it and press enter.
  3. Press tab until you hear ‘Choose default apps by file type’.
  4. Press tab until you reach .Pdf. This can take a while as you have to get through all the other file types until you reach .PDF. I hold down the tab key and let go occasionally to hear what letter of the alphabet I’m at.

Once you get to .PDF, Jaws should tell you what the default program it will open in. On yours it should say ‘Google Chrom. Press space and tab until you hear ‘Adobe Acrobat’.

Then I just press Alt and F4 to close the program.

To check that it’s worked, follow the above instructions up to step four or open a PDF file in Google Chrome.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Cheers

Zel

Hi again, Don and Cher. I was wrong in my last message. I just hadn’t found out how to cause PDF’s to be handled in a way other than to be opened in Google Chrome. I am right in that you cannot cause Google Chrome to open files in Adobe. However if you do the following, you can cause them to be downloaded, instead of opening in the browser.

 

1. Open Google Chrome.

2. Go to Settings.

3. Arrow down to Site Settings and press ENTER.

4. Go to Privacy and Security. TAB until you get to the PDF documents link and press ENTER.

5. Now choose the  Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome button, and press SPACE.

 

Now, if you encounter a PDF file on a web page, you can download it, then view it in Adobe.

Just checked- and I already have .pdfs set to download. There must be something else I’m missing right now. I’ll see if I can pin it down. Thanks everyone for all the good efforts.

Hi,

 

To open the PDF in Adobe instead of Chrome follow the steps below

 

Press ALT + F to open chrome menu and scroll down to settings.
Tab to "Privacy and security" hit enter.
Tab to "Site Settings" and Enter
Now tab down under Permissions and keep scrolling down until you get PDF documents
Use to space bar to toggle ON "Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome"

 

This will download the PDF files instead of opening it directly in your browser. 

And from the downloads you can open these pdf files with Adobe.

Not doing that here- mine was already set for Adobe Reader for .pdf. The file type .pdfxml has no default. What should that be set to?

Re: Microsoft Excel

Van Lant, Robin
 

Be aware that you do not want to have dollar signs in your formula if you are trying to copy them down the Colum. A $ sign in front of a number or letter in a cell reference tells excel to always look at that particular cell, even if the formula is copied to another place.   So, if I have a formula to add the content of column A and column b and place the answer in Column c, my formula might be =A1+B1.  This would corrected adjust to =a2+b2 if you copy and past the formula into C2.
