It isn't clear whether this is one site or more where this problem occurs.  If its one site, there may be something odd about how the site is coded to display but if it is a general problem, I'm not sure what's causing it.

Hello!
I don't quite understand why your cursor would be moving around. On a web page, the cursor should move up down, right, and left just like in a word document. Is the virtual PC cursor on? you should be able to hold the shift key down, and down arrow to select the lines you want, and then paste them into a word document. you can always bookmark the Page, by pressing control + d and then pressing enter. then you can go to your bookmarks and read that web page whenever you want. you may want to reinstall Jaws or other screen reader, because your cursor should not be moving around on the website. Take care!

I don't know what is causing the problem but I can tell you how to work around it.  It isn't as efficient as working with the page but use control a, copy all, when on the page.  Then copy the page to the clipboard and paste it into Notepad.  You can now look at the text without the cursor moving problem.
 
If you use find to look for something that places you at or near the beginning of the article, this method will be reasonably efficient.

Re: I may be in hospital

Gene
 

Here is an update. 
 
I was really lucky.  My doctor had an opening today.  I went there and she said I shouldn't go to the ER now.  We are going to work on the problem and she told me about alternatives to hospitalization concerning the problem I didn't know about.  for now, that of course is the much preferable option and if things go well, I won't have to be in hospital.

Re: Getting information from the internet such as recipes

Some recipe  sites are easier than others to copy  material from and to navigate

Try;

www.simply-recipes.com

 

once I type the recipe I want in the search field, I press enter  then I press h for heading till I hear the name of the recipe, and I usually tab and down arrow til I hear ingredients.  And after that procedure.  There seems to be all kinds of photos and other  stuff in between,  like placing an on line groceryorder.

 

But I do find recipes.

 

If some one know of an easier site to navigate, please tell.

Re: how many use both?

Josh Kennedy
 

for those having android issues, I recommend any of the android one phones such as nokia 4.2. or xiaomi mi a2 or mi a2 lite. and commentary is my favorite android screen reader. It's much faster and less laggy than talkback is.

Re: Link for commentary screen reader for Android APK file

Josh Kennedy
 

first turn on commentary, then turn off talkback once commentary is running. in commentary's settings, under tts, set everything to the system voice and check use a single voice. under content presentation settings, in list settings, uncheck the speaking of list ranges and stuff. under action settings and scrolling, set it to swipe left and right to move through icons rather than swipe up and down. 


Re: Link for commentary screen reader for Android APK file

Josh Kennedy
 

no, commentary screen reader is not on the play store. you absolutely 100 percent must get it from the link i provided and install the APK on your android phone using the total commander app on the play store. commentary is made in china, translated to english by volunteers, distributed on the commentary english screen readers telegram group.

I use both, I don't have a daily driver android at the moment, but
that's mainly because of not having the extra to replace my old galaxy
s6. I Love both for different reasons. IOS is boring but there are
some features that make it worth having.

Hi,

I have an android phone for what it does best, and an iPod touch so I can
use the best that iOS offers without spending a fortune. I have the latest
iPod touch 7th gen that came out In May of 2019. So are there others on here
that have both android and iOS to have the best of both worlds so to speak?

Pending Bill in US Congress: regarding reimbursement for blind access tech for workers

Keith S
 

I was given permission by the list owner, Gene, to post this. Hopefully it will get passed and more of us can enter the work force...

Dear Federation Family:

As President Riccobono mentioned in the Presidential Release, the United States House

and Senate are now back in session and there is no better time to rally support for

our legislative priorities. Congress will be in session until the two week break

at the beginning of October. That gives us exactly three weeks to build serious cosponsor

support for our three legislative priorities

.

Since we have three weeks and three pieces of legislation, we’re going to focus on

one issue per week. I will include bill summaries and cosponsor counts for the relevant

bills in each legislative alert email. This week’s top legislative priority is the

Access Technology Affordability Act.

Access Technology Affordability Act (ATAA)

House – H.R. 2086 – Sponsored by Mike Thompson (D-CA-5) – 28 cosponsors

Senate – S. 815 – Sponsored by John Boozman (R-AR) – 14 cosponsors

This legislation removes an employment barrier commonly experienced by blind Americans

who cannot afford the high cost of access technology by creating a refundable tax

credit in the amount of $2,000 to offset the cost of these technologies.

These cosponsor counts are impressive, but we need to keep the pressure up to ensure

that ATAA moves from the committees to the floor and is ultimately passed into law.

Please call your representative and two senators and urge them to cosponsor the Access

Technology Affordability Act if they have not already done so. A complete list of

current cosponsors is included at the end of this email.

When you call or email, you might say something like the following:

"Hello, my name is [your name] and I am a constituent of [your senator/representative].

I live in [city, state]. I am calling to urge [your senator/representative] to cosponsor

[S. 815 for Senate calls/H.R. 2086 for House calls], the Access Technology Affordability

Act. This legislation removes an employment barrier commonly experienced by blind

Americans who cannot afford the high cost of access technology by creating a refundable

tax credit in the amount of $2,000 to offset the cost of these technologies. I urge

[your senator/representative] to cosponsor the bill.

Thanks."

You can contact your member of Congress by calling the Capitol Switchboard and asking

for the office in question. The number is 202-224-3121. If you email your representative

or senators, please copy John Pare at

jpare@...
