Information Balloons


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Sorry if “information balloon” is not the proper term, but I’m referring to messages that pop up on the screen, that are displayed long enough for JAWS to read them, and that then disappear.  Usually, there is a “click here for more information” line.  In the present case, this information balloon is displayed by a Web application in Internet Explorer.  I would like to freeze the message and actually click on the “For more information” button or whatever the control is.  Of course, it vanishes before I have time.

I swear I’ve searched through JAWS Help in every way I can think of.  I must have the wrong title or name for the thing I’ve tried to describe above.

Thanks for any help you can render!

Marquette,

Are you searching for alt-n to jump to the informationbar?
This is an internet explorer hotkey and not a jaws hotkey.
With ctrl-f6 you can always set focus back to the webpage.

Regards, Marten

Hello there;
I think your speaking of "balloon messages",
In windows 10,
Start-menu button,
In the edit box type ease of access,
Most likely ease will be good enough,
Now enter on,
Ease of access control panel,

Now use the tab key and look for,
Get recommendations to make your computer easier to use link, press enter,

there's a few options/screens,
just tab next, press enter,
continue until done button,
now tab you will see,
How long should Windows notification dialog boxes stay open?
Make your choice with arrow keys,
Tab okay press enter.

I’m not too sure about this, but worth a try. As soon as you hear the pop up message do a left mouse click. This should move you into the message.

Ed,

          It sounds like you're describing what are called toasts (don't ask me why, but that's what these "slide in" messages from Windows 10 that are generally logged in the Action Center afterward are called).  You get this quick alert tone, the thing slides in from the bottom right side of the screen, then pretty quickly disappears.  I often can't get to them in time and I can see them slide in.

          The good thing is that these do get logged in the Action Center and you can go through the list of toasts that have popped up recently that way.

just to add 2 cents, I heard that you shouldn't exceed 30 seconds
because having a longer time will keep the message open longer and thus
might obscure/interfere with reading other program windows that are open.
I recommend 15 seconds which should give you enough time to left click
as soon as the balloon is heard.

The earlier explanation for handling balloons, is correct.

The "toasts" are notifications.

In Settings, search for "toast". You will get:
  Choose how long notifications are shown

My default is 5 seconds.

To get JAWS to announce the notification, use the hotkey: WINDOWS Logo key + v

I sometimes hear only the word: "notification".

When ejecting a USB pen drive, I hear the notification tune and the hot key will announce that it is save to remove it.

Can someone give an example of when a balloon appears?

I am trying to figure out what this thing is and nothing is jumping out at me.  I know toasts and dialog boxes, but I simply cannot seem to pull up any instance where I've gotten what I'd think of as a balloon though it's obvious that any Windows 10 user would encounter them just based on the exchange here.

The concept predates windows 10, actually. windows 7, at least, called them help baloons. Things like letting  you know there were Windows updates available, or that your antivirus was turned off.

James,

           Thanks.  If anyone can give me an example where I can force one under Windows 10 I'd appreciate it.  I could be wrong, but it seems to me that the messages I've gotten regarding antivirus issues and Windows Updates being available under Windows 10 have been via toasts.  That's why I'm not making any direct connection here.

Hi Guys,

I usually place these notification in the system tray and access them from the system tray with insert+F11.

To get them there you:

Hit start, type settings, hit enter, tab to system, hit enter, arrow down to notifications, hit enter, tab to turn system icons on or off, check your choices
