HI List,

 

I was doing a search to find alexa for my pc and the page said it was available in u s, u k, Germany etc.,  but it di not say Canada.

Is this correct?

Does  alexa run on win 7 through 10 and mac?

Thanks for your help.

Sometimes I grow weary just wading through those search results,  and I have started using

www.startpage.com  instead of google.

Thanks,

Monte

Yo Bro,
 
Try the following:
1. While in Word press, Insert + V, to open Jaws quick settings.
 
2. Down arrow to, Editing Options, if it says closed press the right arrow to open.
 
3. Continue down arrowing 6 or so times to, New Lines and Paragraphs Indication, if this says, On, press the spacebar to turn it off. 
 
4.  Tab to, Okay, press enter to save and close.

 
Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!

Re: Thunderbird list?

Gerald Levy
 

Unfortunately, the owner/moderator of the Thunderbird list is a guy named Marcio who seems to have vanished into the ether.  He has not posted on the Thunderbird or any other lists for months, so there is no way for a new member to the TB list to get his first message approved.  To my knowledge, nobody else has taken over running this list.  It is possible thatMarcio is experiencing personal or technical issues that prevent him from moderating the TB list.

Also, I think it is better to use Firefox Portable.  If there are any problems such as corruption of the program or you lose your profile, you don't have to waste any time trouble shooting or repairing the program.  Simply copy the portable version to another location as a backup.  Delete and copy the program to the backup location as things change so it will be current.  if you ad some book marks, update the backup.  After a new version is installed to update the program, copy it to the backup location. then, if anything goes wrong with the program you use, delete the folder and copy the portable backup folder to the location of the program you use and you will have to do nothing else.  the portable version does everything the installed version does and I think Firefox should actually get rid of their installed version and make the portable version available as the program.  I see no advantage and clear disadvantages in using the installed program.  
 
also, if you get a new computer, you can simply copy the portable version to the new computer.  No copying cookies to the installed version on a new machine, no loss of history, which means no loss of visited links, you will have everything you have on the old machine, except that I'm not sure if every add-on and plugin is copied, but they may all be..

I don't know why you are having the problem with Chrome.  You may want to use Internet Explorer to download and Chrome for everything else.
 
As time passes, you may want or need to use Firefox for downloading and Chrome for everything else.  Over time, you will slowly be able to use Internet Explorer on fewer and fewer sites.  It is an archaic browser and as sites change technologically, slowly, increasing numbers won't work.
 
You will have little to learn to use Firefox.

I'm not sure.  Where do you see such wide fluctuations as five minutes and two days.  The only place I see something like that is when uploading, not downloading, to Dropbox.  What happens when you use other browsers?  Perhaps the download is timing out because of a network problem.  it may be so slow for so long that it simply stops as a timeout.  You may be able to verify that by checking the download history, which I'll discuss later if necessary.  But first, what happens with other browsers?

I am not sure what you mean by the accessibility changed.  there were problems such as slow performance when the new quantum versions of Firefox started to be released perhaps a year ago.  but that has been greatly improved now.  I don't know if there are any problems or inconveniences now. but the program was accessible continually.  Try the current version if you want to see what you think of it.  It is a very bad idea to run old versions of browsers.

I don't know why you are having the problem with Chrome.  You may want to use Internet Explorer to download and Chrome for everything else.
 
As time passes, you may want or need to use Firefox for downloading and Chrome for everything else.  Over time, you will slowly be able to use Internet Explorer on fewer and fewer sites.  It is an archaic browser and as sites change technologically, slowly, increasing numbers won't work.
 
You will have little to learn to use Firefox.

It sounds like your internet connection is fluctuating.

Do you know how to download with Internet Explorer?  It makes it much more difficult to test the problem if you limit yourself to only one browser.

I'm not sure.  Where do you see such wide fluctuations as five minutes and two days.  The only place I see something like that is when uploading, not downloading, to Dropbox.  What happens when you use other browsers?  Perhaps the download is timing out because of a network problem.  it may be so slow for so long that it simply stops as a timeout.  You may be able to verify that by checking the download history, which I'll discuss later if necessary.  But first, what happens with other browsers?

But what actually happens or doesn't happen?  When downloading doesn't work, is there an error message?  Does any sort of dialog open?

Re: accessible tor version?

Mich Verrier
 

Hi I am not shure about this web browser how ever I thought that the tor web browser was the browser that you were able to use if you wanted to access the dark web? I thought or was under the impression that that was not accessible using jaws or other adaptive tech. from Mich.

Hi David,

I believe there is a way using the configuration editor. I thought I
had an e-mail saved that describes how to do it. I can't find it. Maybe
someone else will have the information.

Hello Gene,

I'd say your assessment is right on. I believe I'm seeing the disable
accessibility in play. I've tried two screen readers and neither can
see the menus. Is there another way I can get at this setting perhaps
a commandline option to temporarily give me accessibility support then
while in that session turning the setting permanently correct? Or
another way?

Thanks.
Dave.

I don't know if the browser will work properly when this change is made, but
it is based on the Firefox browser and that browser has a setting to disable
accessibility. I thought this setting was off and that the current version
of Tor is accessible. I remember reading that awhile ago. If that isn't
the case and accessibility is disabled, you may need sighted help to change
the setting so your screen-reader can receive information from the browser.

You can try changing this setting and see if the browser works well. I
don't know how the Tor developers may have changed the browser compared to
firefox and if it will work well after this change. I am assuming that at
present, you get no information from the browser. I don't even think you
can see the menus. Let me know if things are different from what I
describe. If they are, that may indicate another problem, and others may be
able to address it with more information.

As I recall, the accessibility setting is somewhere in options.

Subject: [TechTalk] accessible tor version?


Hello,

I'm using jfw 2019 and NVDA 2019 as screen readers. I'm needing to use
tor. It does not look like the current version nor the previous one
which I have as 7.5.4 is accessible anymore. Is there an accessible
version or a fix?

Thanks.
Dave.
