In case what I wrote is unclear, the link that Pontes uses gets there because the user copies the link to the clipboard from the browser.  Pontes automatically places the link from the address bar into its edit field.

There may be implications for other situations.  Usually, the link that appears in Pontes comes from the clipboard because the user copied it there from the browser's address bar.  If that is what you did and the link was defective, that means that it may be that the very common practice of people sending people links to articles by copying links from the address bar and pasting them into a message may not work with Edge.  If they don't, that is important to know and is a serious flaw.

It shouldn't matter, but which version are you running?

Its still working, I used it within the last day or two.  I have never seen the download button not be available, whether it worked or not.  If it didn't work, because an update was needed to get around a change on the Youtube site, the button still was there, downloads just weren't successful.
That implies a reinstallation may be in order.  the program itself may be corrupted.

Good evening everyone.  I haven’t used Pontes in a couple months or so, but
I tried tonight to pull down a Youtube tutorial about the Book Port Plus
with Pontes, and it will not show me the download button.  Does it still
work, or has Youtube done something to render it useless? Thanks in

Re: best MVNO plans?

Enes,

           My first question is:  Must this be on an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator), e.g., Metro, Virgin Mobile, Boost, etc.?

            My second, and it's related to the first, is are you 55 years old or more?

            T-Mobile has an incredible plan for those age 55 and over and since they don't require a contract . . .

best MVNO plans?

enes sarıbaş
 

Hi all,

So I am currently using Metro By Tmobile's 30 dollars per month cheapest plan, which only encludes 2 gb of data, and doesn't support features like call waiting, conference calls etc. However, my research indicates that I could probably save more and get more perks and data on other MVNOs. Does anyone have recommendations for this? Mint mobile sounds apealing with its 3gb plan. For clerification, I do all data intensive activities off celular and on wi fi. All I need celular for is video calls, since my DSL is far too slow to support those, as well as voice calls and checking e-mail, and sending and receiving voice and text messages.

I am using the latest  version of the new MS Edge with JAWS and when I go to a site where the Emersive Reader is available JAWS will announce that Emersive Reader is available, then press F9 and the page is reformatted and if you wish to use read aloud press control shift U and the read aloud voice will read the page  control shift U is a toggle to stop  start the read aloud.

Howdy Fred,

Note:  The Emersive Reader doesn't work in the Stable version, only the Developer versions.
 
From: chris judge
Hi. If you are on a page where the immersive reader is available, press Alt D. this will move you to the address field. Tabbing once from here will land
you on the enter immersive reader button if it is available. Press spacebar to enter immersive reader.

From: chris judge
The f9 key does not work any more. The easiest way to enable the immersive reader is to press altD then tab once to the immersive reader button. Press
spacebar to enable.
Chris
 
From:
Sieghard Weitzel
If you are  using the Stable version it won't work, but the dev version where F9 apparently works, do this:

 


1. After the web page loads press Alt + D, this will take you to the address bar

 

2. Tab once, if the Immersive Reader is available, you will hear, “Enter Immersive Reader”

 

3. Press spacebar or enter to activate the button, the web page is reformatted and you can now read it without almost all of the clutter you normally find. 

 

If you want to exit immersive reader just repeat the above steps, it will say “Exit Immersive Reader” when you get to the button. It’s a very simply 2-step
key combination followed by enter or spacebar to activate.

It certainly does on all the recent dev versions, so if there was a stable or beta version where it accidentally got knocked out it will be coming back.

 

I agree that it's always worth knowing you can throw focus to the address bar with ALT+D, then tab once to the Immersive Reader button, if it's present
for a given page.

The correct statement would’ve been f9 doesn’t work in the stable version.  That will be fixed when the stable gets up to version 81 something.  It most
certainly works in developer builds.

Re: accessible disk imaging software.

Gerald Levy
 


Are there any podcasts that demonstrate how to create this magical talking PE disk, plus a demonstration of how to use it to restore a backup image from an external hard drive without sighted help of any kind? The owner/moderator of the defunct JAWS Users email list, David Ferrin, who has apparently vanished into the ether, created a podcast on his Help page that demonstrated how to use Image for Windows with a series of CD's to restore a backup image, but this was years ago before he shut down the list and help site, and Image for Windows is apparently a much different program now.

Here's the bottom line.  There is no inmaging program that is completely accessible.  Macrium Reflect is accessible only for creating the backup image on an external hard drive.  But sighted assistance is needed to restore this image because there is no speech available during the restoration procedure.  This is true of all imaging programs; the backup procedure may be accessible, but sighted help is almost certainly needed to restore the saved image.
