Moving ads out of the way in Firefox

Steven Johnson <saxmonger@...>
 

Good day everyone.  I’m posting here trying to find a way to move an annoying ad out of the way on one of my favorite auction sites.  When I locate an item that I would like more info about, I hit enter on the item’s link and I am presented with several tabs including an info tab which is the one I would like.  I hit spacebar on that tab, and in the place of the text that I would like to read, a random ad occurs in its place.  Anyone know of a nifty trick to scoot the intrusive ad out of the way and read the info about my auction item?  I use JAWS 2019 with Firefox.  Thanks in advance for any tips.

Windows 10 calculator works as it should with JAWS 2020, NVDA, and narrator, but with JAWS 2021 a totally different interface comes up. I spent about 2 hours with FS support this morning they tandomed in to my computer but they could not fix the problem. This happens with 3 computers in my home. Is there anyone else having this problem?

Hi  Chris,

 

That  pretty well sums it up.

I thought the program was installed because it was in the msconfig startup list.

Gene Asner suggested that the program was not really installed.

So I typed the name in the start search and chose yes when questioned by  install checker.

Then dropbox showed up in the notification area.

I had a similar issue a while back. I finally uninstalled drop box, then reinstalled it, linked up again and all was well.

Hi List,

 

Here is the picture;  I  have win10 20h2, current version of nvda and chrome.

 

I cannot upload anythingto dropbox.

This may have happened around new years; not sure.

Dropbox is set to run at startup and to appear in the notifications area.

It does not show in the notifications area. I find the dropbox folder in the “user folder” on my C drive.

 

It does not show up in File Explorer.

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

 

Monte

probles with face book posting

heather albright
 

Hello, this may sound like a strange question but, how do you get your post to post off face book

? I use the face book mobile site and in the past, you could get directly to where you posted something but, now it changed and it does not matter which browser I use, it no longer goes directly to where I can post.

I did see where it says press inter to post but, it never works.

I tried both jaws 2021 and NVDA. I can get directly to where I can post off my iPhone but, not my computer

. So what am I missing, face book used to be so easy in the past.

I have been posting off my iPhone so I did not see the changes they made to face book off the pc. I think my last post off the pc was in August.

Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks Heather

Remapping keys with a screen reader?

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

So I recently bought a new mechanical keyboard with brown cherry MX switches to replace my blue cherry MX keyboard that had a jammed spacebar. This new keyboard is ok so far, but one thing that I didn’t realize when buying it is that where the applications key usually is (between the right windows key and right control key), there’s an FN key instead. There are also four keys separate and immediately above the numpad with dedicated functions. From left to right, it’s mute, volume down, volume up and calculator.

Not having the applications key where it usually is isn’t a deal breaker necessarily, but I’d like to be able to have an applications key on this full keyboard instead of having to use the shift+F10 command. My impulse is to remap the dedicated calculator key on the top far right of the keyboard since I never ever use the built in windows 10 calculator app and from what I read, it’s not really possible to remap the dedicated FN key, but as I’ve never bothered to look into doing such a thing since I never had to undertake such a task, I have no idea how accessible the process is or if there’s maybe a free app out there that can do this if it’s not possible in Windows 10 alone.

 My main screen reader is Jaws, but I also have NVDA on this machine.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Cristóbal

Hi,
 
I know there are multiple settings for storing DB items, on the cloud alone or on the cloud and on your computer as well. Which setting is for which?
 
On one of my computers I only want the files on the cloud and not stored on my computer. On another computer I want them stored both on my computer in DB and on the cloud.
 
Thanks.

I have a game on my computer that I need to have graphics on for because
I need to hear the labeled graphics. I usually keep graphics turned off
at all other times though so is there a way to have a profile that would

Re: Youtube TV question

Wendy Walker
 

I have had Youtube TV for about a year now. I use it on my iPhone and
on my Toshiba Fire TV. It is very accessible, it just takes getting
used to the layout like any new thing you use. What I found that
helped me a lot was to go on the iPhone app first and you can arrange
the channels in whatever order you like or even hide the channels you
never watch. This same lineup order will then appear in the app when
viewing it on the TV. There are no channel numbers, only the channel
call letters such as TBS or TV Land, etc. At least on my Fire TV, the
listings are in columns and rows so if you arrow left when you are in
the "Live" list you will be in the channel name. You can then arrow
down or up to see all the other channels. When you are on the channel
you want then arrow right and it tells you the name of the show. As
far as audio description, you cannot just turn it on and have it be on
for all shows like Netflix. You have to go into the options for the
show when you are watching it. I have not had luck with very many
channels though that play the audio description. That is really my
only complaint about this service.

Good day folks. My wife and I would like to divorce Xfinity cable. My
in-laws who are sighted have Youtube TV, and it seems to have every channel
that we like. Is there an accessible configuration that I could try that
would allow us to read the channel names as well as the guide on Youtube
TV?
Would an Amazon Fire TV box with the Youtube TV app installed speak the
channel names as well as the guide which tells us what is on? Do you folks
know of a smart TV with voice guidance that would read everything that the
Youtube TV app shows on the screen? We really want Youtube TV, and we need
voice guidance to help us navigate and figure out what is showing. Thanks
in advance for your thoughts.
