Jaws windows 10 and office 360

Tariq Ali
 

Hi all
I have been a very competent JAWS user for several years with windows XP and windows seven utilising Microsoft office 2010.

Recently my office has upgraded to Windows 10 and office 360. I seem to be at a loss with a lot of the functionality. I’m not sure whether this is a jaws issue or whether it is my unfamiliarity with Windows 10 and office 360. I am wondering if there are any resources out there that someone could recommend which I could access.  Alternatively if anybody can recommend any training material that would be also good.

Regards
Tariq

its pretty strait forward but take the time to read the user guide. Hope this helps.

Subject: [TechTalk] Remapping keys with a screen reader?

 

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

I haven't used Facebook on the computer in a long time so I have no idea what they have done.  It used to be very easy.  You should be able to go to what's on your mind and enter there and type your post and then tab to where it says post and then enter.  Facebook is doing something different all around.  I don't like what they have done on the app.  Now when I go through my news feed or my notifications and I click on one of my friends, after I comment or like something, there is no back button.  You now have to scrub the screen with 2 fingers to make it go back where you can start looking at other posts.  It's a pain in the neck and I wish they would leave things alone.  Hope this somewhat helps.

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

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.

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

dropbox question

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.

Hi all,


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
automatically load only when I open the game that would have labeled
graphics active and at all other times no graphics are spoken?
