I don’t currently use ADT as I was using a local service that I no longer contract with. I am currently looking for a much less expensive option. I say all that to say all this. I had a person who sold security systems years ago tell me something that I’m a firm believer in. The most important part of a security system is the sign in the yard & the stickers on the windows. So if they’re being offered. Take them. If not, buy them.

At both homes we also have multiple cameras that upload the video to the ADT Pulse server / website where it stores the video and we can access / see all activity from our iPhones or computers.  I can't see the video but my wife can and we can operate the alarm systems and the thermostat at the one house from the ADT Pulse iPhone app or portal / website.  I haven't figured out how to work the thermostat from my iPhone or computer as of yet, but hopefully that'll become accessible over time.
 
 
Another thing I'll add is that we had a Ring Doorbell installed at the home that we don't live at and this alerts my wife's iPhone whenever someone comes into the yard or enters the gate to come to the front door.  Which also stores video at the Ring Doorbell server / website, but this is a separate protection device from our ADT contract although ADT installed it.

maybe I could take that too, a little harder, but the thing that broke
the bank for me was a touchscreen keypad at side of property for

can't interface with a phone or other technology.

I guess my questions are do you have these issues and if so how do you

accessible web video downloader for chrome

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

There are some videos on the website

www.animekisa.tv

 

 

that I want to download. Is there a accessible video download helper addon I can use for google chrome? I wonder if it will download any faster than the mp4upload server that is add-supported that I am currently downloading videos from? I am just downloading for personal use then stripping the video with pazera audio converter and converting to mp3 files for myself. I tried pontes media downloader but it did not work. I tried funimation but could not switch the language to the English dubbed version. So far animekisa is the most accessible.

Hi Sharon,

 

Just a little tip when sharing Dropbox download links.  If you replace the, 0, at the end of the download link with a, 1, this will make it a direct download instead of someone having to download the file from the Dropbox website.  Here's your link with the, 1, at the end.  Try downloading with both download links to see the difference.

Re: anyone users of ADT?

Robin Frost
 

Hi,
I too like Mike use ADT and I too got them to install the ring doorbell for me.  The safe watch 3000 has a talking keypad and by that I mean it tells whether it’s armed or disarmed in away or stay mode.  The only thing it doesn’t speak are the errors but if you have a pulse system as Mike and I both do which has the ability to control cameras and even light switches it can send the errors right to ADT so if you get a text or email of a trouble issue you can call in and they can tell you what the issue is.  I have no issues if anything goes wrong because my contract includes next business day tech service. It isn’t the cheapest but I’m happy with my level of service with them. Their pulse app is accessible meaning you can use it on an iPhone even if it isn’t the most intuitive app ever.
I hope that helps.
Take good care.
Robin

Well Chris,

The reason we don't have markings on our currency is because unlike you guys up in Canada, we're not an evil, radical socialist country that believes in antiquated ideals such as truth, fairness, giving the little guy an even break and such.

Sorry, couldn't resist!

How long exactly must it take to come up with acceptable tactile markings on

KOSHER and poses threats against which I may not be able to defend myself in

How many more litigations are needed to correct a wrong? And I'm told

Wrong Beta Number

Mike B.
 

Hi All,
 
My apologies, I put the wrong Beta number in the subject line on my first post.  The subject line should read as follows below,

JAWS 2020.1909.73 Beta 2

I'm sorry for the typo.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

JAWS 2020.1909.79 Beta 2 Download Link

Mike B.
 

Hi All,
 
Below is the download link for the J2020.1909.79 Beta 2 release.  I'm posting only what's new for J2020 because there's nothing that I could find for what's new in this specific release only.  Also the direct link to the Beta report form is below the download link.
Download link for 32 & 64 bit system:
 
Beta report form link:
 
 
What's new for J2020:
 
New Features Added in JAWS 2020
 
The following features are new to JAWS 2020.
 
Reduced Double Speaking of Form Control Prompts
 
When navigating and filling out forms on the web, it has become increasingly common for web page authors to include the prompt inside the control in addition
to assigning an accessible Tag for the control. While non-screen reader users only see the written prompt, those using a screen reader are getting both
the Prompt and accessible Tag in Speech as well as Braille if a display is in use. Often times, the web page author has assigned the same text for each,
so it appears the screen reader is double speaking. In JAWS 2020, we have greatly reduced the amount of double speaking of form controls as you navigate
using speech and Braille by comparing the prompt and these tags, and only speaking or brailling them both if they are different.
 
Note: For Public Beta 1, only the double speaking of prompts has been completed. The Braille representation will be corrected for Public Beta 2 in early
October.
 
Zoom Meeting Scripts Added for an Improved Experience
 
Thanks to Hartgen Consulting, basic scripts for Zoom are now included directly in JAWS and Fusion to improve the experience when attending Zoom Meetings.
This platform is used for our quarterly FS Open Line program as well as the free training webinars we hold each month. These scripts offer a more pleasant
experience by giving more control over what you hear, without interrupting the flow as users enter or leave the room or make comments. Press INSERT+H to
view a list of JAWS keystrokes available in Zoom such as turning off alerts, speaking recent chat messages, and more. You can also press INSERT+W to view
a list of Zoom hot keys.
 
Hartgen    Consultancy
 also offers more advanced scripts for Zoom Pro if you are interested.
 
Enhanced JAWS and Invisible Cursor Support for Windows 10 Universal Apps
 
For years, JAWS users have relied on the JAWS cursor (NUM PAD MINUS) and Invisible cursor (NUM PAD MINUS twice quickly) to review and interact with areas
in an application where the PC cursor cannot go. This includes reading textual information which is on-screen but not focusable, and interacting with controls
which are only accessible using a mouse as the mouse pointer will follow the JAWS cursor and NUM PAD SLASH and NUM PAD STAR will perform a left and right
click. However, the Off-Screen Model (OSM) which has traditionally been used to support the JAWS and Invisible cursors is becoming less and less available
as newer technology such as UIA, found especially in Windows universal apps like the calculator or the Windows Store, is now being used exclusively for
accessing screen content. This results in the JAWS and Invisible cursors becoming unusable when attempting to navigate in those windows. All you would
hear in those cases was "blank" as you reviewed the screen. This is because the modern technology currently in use is not able to be captured by the traditional
Off-Screen Model. In those cases, the only solution was using the Touch Cursor, something most users are not as familiar with.
 
JAWS 2020 now detects when focus is in an application where the OSM is not supported and will automatically use the new JAWS Scan cursor in these situations.
You will use all of the same navigation commands as you would with the traditional JAWS cursor or the Invisible cursors.
 
For example, if you open the Calculator or Windows Store in JAWS 2020 and press NUM PAD MINUS, you will now hear JAWS announce "JAWS Scan Cursor" as these
are apps that do not support the OSM. You can then use the ARROW keys like you always have done to move by character, word, line, as well as INSERT+UP
ARROW to read the current line, or PAGE UP, PAGE DOWN, HOME, and END. The mouse pointer will also continue to follow as it always has. The only difference
is that the cursor does not move from top to bottom or left to right. Instead, it moves by element the way the developer laid out the app.
 
While this works in many places, there are still some areas where more work by Freedom Scientific is required. For instance, if you use Office 365, and
try to read your Account version information with the JAWS cursor commands, it is still not possible to navigate and read in these places. That work is
underway and we plan to have an update for this area in the 2020 version soon. Stay tuned.
 
Convenient OCR Updated to Use the Latest OmniPage
 
The recognition engine used by the JAWS Convenient OCR feature has been updated to Kofax OmniPage 20, formerly owned by Nuance. This offers greater accuracy
when recognizing the text from on-screen images as well as text from images captured with a PEARL camera or scanner.
 
For users needing to OCR using Hebrew or Arabic, these languages will be included in later public beta builds or by the final release at the latest. Once
these languages are working, they will be installed with any English or Western European download of JAWS and Fusion.
 
Virtual Cursor Toggle Now Tab Specific in Google Chrome
 
Today, there are many web apps where using the Virtual Cursor is not the best approach. An example of this can be seen if you use Gmail in the Chrome Browser.
In these cases, it makes sense to toggle the Virtual Cursor off by pressing INSERT+Z and then use this application with the PC cursor. Many users also
regularly open multiple tabs (CTRL+T) so they can easily access different sites such as GMail plus one or two other pages by moving between the open tabs
using CTRL+TAB. This can become frustrating as you need to constantly press INSERT+Z to get the right cursor in use as you switch between tabs.
 
Beginning with version 2020, we are introducing an option to help JAWS automatically remember the state of the Virtual Cursor for each tab once you set
it. It will also announce whether the Virtual Cursor is on or off as you move between various tabs. Once you close the browser, or restart JAWS, it will
default back to its default behavior so you will need to set this each day as you use it.
 
For the Public Beta, this feature is not turned on by default. It will be enabled by default In later Beta builds. If you would like to try it out in the
first Beta, do the following:
 
list of 5 items
1. Press INSERT+6 to open Settings Center.
2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default file.
3. Type "Tab" in the search field.
4. Press DOWN ARROW until you locate "Virtual Cursor On/Off based on Browser Tabs."
5. Press the SPACEBAR to enable the option and then select OK.
list end
 
Note: If you choose to enable this feature in public beta 1, you will hear the announcement of the Virtual Cursor state in certain situations as you navigate.
This will be corrected in subsequent builds.
 
Contracted Braille Input Enhancements
 
For ElBraille users as well as those who regularly use a Braille display with their PC, JAWS 2020 offers significant improvements when typing in contracted
Braille. In particular:
 
list of 5 items
• You should now be able to enter and edit text in numbered and bulleted lists in Word, WordPad, Outlook, and Windows Mail.
• Contracted Braille input is now supported in more applications including PowerPoint and TextPad.
• Improved Contracted Braille input in WordPad, especially when editing a numbered or bulleted list created in Word and opened in Wordpad. This includes
properly handling wrapped items which previously showed the number or bullet on subsequent wrapped lines, rather than indenting the text.
• Improved Contracted Braille input in Chrome, Google docs, and other online editors which can create bulleted and numbered lists.
• Typing rapidly using Contracted Braille in Microsoft Office as well as other applications should no longer result in text becoming scrambled.

General Changes in Response to Customer Requests
list of 6 items
• While browsing the internet, JAWS will no longer announce "Clickable" by default as you move to various content.
• You should no longer hear the message "Press JAWS Key+ALT+R to hear descriptive text" as you navigate form controls and certain other elements on the
web.
• By default in Word and Outlook, JAWS will no longer announce "Alt SHIFT F10 to adjust Auto Correction" when you move to something that was auto corrected
previously.
• JAWS and Fusion will no longer gather a count of all the objects, misspellings, grammatical errors, and so on when a document is opened in Word. This
will enable documents to load much faster, including very large documents containing a lot of these items. You can always press INSERT+F1 for an overview
of what the document contains.
• Improved responsiveness when closing Word after saving a document.
• The AutoCorrect Detection option, previously only available in the Quick Settings for Word, can now also be changed in the Quick Settings for Outlook
(INSERT+V).

Re: i-Bill Reader Question

I think there have been tactile markings on the paper money here in Canada
since the last millennium.
Also, the one and two dollar bills have been replaced with easily
recognizable coins even earlier that the tactile currency. Was
introduced.

These coins are referred to as the loonie and toonie.
The currency readers here are supplied by the federal government at no
charge.
And yes, we do pay higher taxes on some things especially two of my
favourite, tobacco and alcohol.

I can't believe you guys still do not have markings on your currency. Here
in Canada we've had them for several years now.

As one who keeps attempting to run a business and must necessarily count out
bills for customer's change fast and quick, I detest the iBill! Tactile
markings should have been on the dollar bill more than ten years ago if my
counting is reasonably accurate. ACB won that landmark case against the
Department of Treasury even though the NFB was averse to the idea, sided
with Miss Government and lost on all fronts.

How long exactly must it take to come up with acceptable tactile markings on
the dollar bill? The $1 bill is exempted from such markings and that's fine
with me. Using the iBill or even any phone app in my situation is NOT
KOSHER and poses threats against which I may not be able to defend myself in
a store front where I am typically working alone.

How many more litigations are needed to correct a wrong? And I'm told
always that TWO WRONGS don't make a right, how about the very first wrong?
If Miss Government can't police herself by making sure that she enforces ADA
impartially, why should private commercial entities be scolded at every turn
for hardly ever thinking about ADA?
