Re: accessibility to GoToWebinar

Ann Parsons
 

Morning all,

Heather, what browser are you using? What version of Jaws?

I just tried this site with Jaws16 and Win7. I used Google Chrome as the browser. I could read the main page very well. I didn't log in, but I was able to see all links. Now, I didn't try it in Win10 with the latest version of Jaws. When did you start getting the blank screens? Was it before or after you logged in. Somebody needs to test this more thoroughly. I suspect that it probably *does* work with Jaws but it needs some tweaking. Works with System Access. I'd try Google Chrome I didn't try NVDA, but that might be an option as well. Caveat, I repeat, I didn't log in, so all I saw was the main page. If you're trying to access this thing with MSIE, you probably won't get the best results as MSIE is legacy software. I like Chrome. I don't care for Edge, and although I can use FF, I prefer Google Chrome because it works with most things.

It should work with Jaws, if it truly doesn't, once you log in, then they need to fix it.

One thing I have noticed over the years is that it is always a good idea to have more than one screen reader and more than one browser on your system. There are differences in browsers and in screen readers, and one short-changes oneself if one sticks to just one screen reader or one browser. Does the site work with a braille display?

This appears to refer to go To meeting, something I have never seen abbreviated.  I am not at all sure there is a generally recognized short form for this application or app.

Hi all,

I'm not clear about what you're asking here.  Do you mean this
Accessibility To Go, or Zoom?  Zoom is most assuredly accessible.  I've
never heard of this Accessibility To Go.

Re: feeds on my windows 10pc

heather albright
 

I went to Microsoft site and it keeps telling me to click on the task bar and turn off the news feed. But, I do not get this option. Is there a non nonvisual way to turn this off besides clicking off the taskbar? I did a search for feeds and it does not come up. I went threw all my notifications, it was not there.    But there is always a feed giving me the weather and Microsoft news in my tab sequence. Thanks Heather

Re: accessibility to GoToWebinar

Thomas N. Chan
 

I have not been using gotomeeting for a few months. Most of it, its rather useable with jaws.
Due to the my mobility, I use on my mobile device on the go
But thats as a guest, not a host.
I don't have any webina at this stage with gotomeeting, so i can't really test if the accessibility is still useable with current version of jaws or nvda.
but then again, i have been using it for a few years long before zoom came in, its rather ok.

Re: read aloud speed

Gene
 

In imersive reader, if you look down, you will see a voice options button.  Activate it with the space bar.  Have reading already in progress so you can hear the speed change as you move the slider.  Go into forms mode or turn browse mode off, whatever terms match your screen-reader, you are doing the same thing.
You are on a slider.  Use the left and right arrow keys.  When you are finished, leave the window with escape.

Re: Mesh device

Thomas N. Chan
 

Wireless Mesh  is more efficient in send and receiving connection as its b-directional.  the backbone of the network of a wireless mesh are either using another frequency or higher frequency so the transmission  is not interfere or interrupt  by 2.4GHZ example. they are generally at 5.0GHZ. some of them can be connected using wireless backbone aka backhaul.

wireless extended are basically another network talking to the existing network. they can't utilise  the full potential of 5.0ghz, so they can only transmit  on 2.4ghz. they will talk one direction, before receiving another. no doubt its happening in tiny mini second but they are generally less efficient.

if you are going to change or upgrade your existing wireless network or router, if your money permit and i will highly recommend go for wireless mesh. you can upgrade  your or add node as you can afford. 
example, if you get google wifi and google nest wifi, they generally can talk to one another  despite being years apart.
Asus as well have AIMesh. you can get older model and talk to newer model. of course, you can't change older model speed to newer one.

Thomas N. Chan

It will usually have a separate network that you can connect too. Also, it reduces your speed because it is extending your network rather than using multiple  nodes.

I’d never use a network extender if given the choice.

no matter what browser or what screen reader I'm having major trouble with drop-down menus

joanne
 

I don't know if there's a new menu style no matter what browser I use, but the lists and combo boxes on all the browsers seem to be a nightmare to get around. As I tab through most websites I'm constantly met with collapsed/expanded, and even to try to work with combo boxes it seems like the items in the list box aren't all showing. You may see item one but it doesn't read the whole list so you can decide which item you want to click in combo boxes. I'm still using windows 7 and am surprised that most sites look unfamiliar like some things will be when I learn 10. I see menus say collapsed or expanded and when I expand I still seem to have to make an expand/collapse choice on many tabs of the sites. For instance, I used to be able to straightforward transfer between accounts using combo boxes. But I tried so many times on all 3 browsers I have, and it didn't seem to stay where I wanted it to on the combo boxes and I didn't know what to expand or collapse so I could simply get a more traditional-type view of the site and its combo boxes. I just don't know how to work with these drop-downs anymore and hope someone can give helpful hints. In a previous message I mentioned my problem with folders not showing items off-line, so I wonder if there's some kind of huge minimize-maximize problem as I surf the web as well.
 
Thanks so much.

When  using drop box, I usually do windows r and type in drop box and open it this way. When I go to quit drop box, I used to select it from the system tray  and left clicking it and went to quit. I cant find this with the knew drop box. I tried to do it this way using both NVDA and jaws.

I know there is most likely an easier method to quit the program. I tried ending task and it does not want to end. I even tried to do it from the main folder and it only closes drop box but, it is still running in the system tray. I would keep it on but, I belong to some groups and they are always adding and taking files out of the shared folder. So it is constantly making noise.
