Hi all.  I have a friend who is still using i.E.  she would like to use Edge but she says she “can’t get to grips with it.”  She is looking for a tutorial on using edge but I don’t know if such a thing exists.  If it does and somebody has it could you share it and I can send it to her please.  I go into hospital on Wednesday morning so most likely won’t be able to respond, at least not immediately to any responses.  Your help is appreciated though.  Walter.

 


Re: Edit Field With Brave Browser Question Please.

Janet
 

HI Gene,
Ok, I tried both methods, and I get the exact same results. Didn't JAWS always read text as default? I will be very disappointed if there is no solution, as I love using Brave as my browser, but I just can't stand hearing JAWS always reading every key I press though. I wonder why would I now start having this problem with JAWS and the edit field though.

One method is to turn off speech, type, then turn it on again. To turn off
speech, the command is JAWS key space, followed by the letter s. The same
command again turns speech on again.

It sounds to me as though there is no setting that will solve the problem.
My guess is that what is happening is that when you type, the letter is
appearing as a selected or highlighted letter. JAWS is announcing it as it
appears because JAWS reads selected text by default.

As I consider the problem, there may be another way to solve the problem.
JAWS key s switches between three options. The default is highlighted and
it is the one you would usually use. All is another option and none is
another. Use the command to move to none and see what happens when you
type. them move to highlighted after you finish.

Hi All,
Just for a few weeks maybe a month, everytime I type a search in the edit
field using Brave, it keeps typing every letter as well as every word. This
is driving me crazy. I have searched in the Brave settings, I've turned off
audo complete to see if that would make a difference, I've checked JAWS 2021
Echo settings, and he is set to speak nothing as I type, but nothing seems
to make a difference. Can someone please give me some suggestions as to how
I might rectify this issue before I pull out my hair. This current issue is
happening on Win 7 as well as Win 10.

Thank you in advance.

Peace Be With You.

I meant to write then move to highlighted when you are finished. But my guess may not be correct and JAWS reading what is highlighted may not be the cause of the problem.

But if you use Send Space, you need to tell those you are sending files to
who are free users how to use it safely. Unless you know how, hacked
advertising may be shown that may try to install malware. You need to know
how to use the site in such a way that you don't see advertising as a free
user.

Also, if you are sending a long file, free users have greatly restricted
download speeds. It may not matter, the person can just let the download
progress much more slowly than his actual speed, but if it does matter to
someone, there are other free alternatives.

How to move around in the new Edge browser with Jaws.
 
OK, what good is it to give out directions if you don't know how to get around in the new Edge with Jaws?
 
OK, let me take a better try at explaining how to get around the new Edge with Jaws!
 
I start out with some new directions to more easily  get around the new Edge with Jaws, then some reminders on getting around Edge with  Jaws.
 
From your homepage, you can do the following things in Edge .
 
*Press the F6 key to cycle through elements, wich are    also   called panes:
 
When you press f6, you will hear.
 
The tab bar
 
Address and search bar
 
Favorites bar (if available)
 
Webpage content
 
Downloads bar (if available)
 
notifications, if available.
 
* For example I really like the following way of getting around in the new Edge with Jaws.
 
**After Pressing F6 one time, from any page in Edge you will land on The tab bar.
 
From the Tab bar, you can Press eather Right or left arrow keys to look at all your open Tabs.
 
** For example, After Pressing F6 on my computer, I will hear:
 
Tab bar Tool bar, MSN | Outlook, Office, Skype, Bing, Breaking News, and Latest Videos Tab‑ selected,1 of 3.
 
when I Press the right arrow key I hear, Close tab Button.
 
when I Press the right arrow key again  I hear,
windows10AndJaws@groups.io
 Home Tab 2 of 3.
 
‑when I Press the right arrow key again  I hear, Close tab Button.
 
‑when I Press the right arrow key again I hear, NFB-NEWSLINE® Online Publication List Tab 3 of 3.
 
when I Press the right arrow key again  I hear, Close tab Button.
 
when I Press the right arrow key again I hear,New Tab Button.
 
** This is the easiest and fastest way to change from one open Tab to another   Tab,  by just Pressing the Spacebar on any tab as you Right arrow across
the Tab bar Tool bar.
 
** when you go across the Tab bar Tool bar, you can also close any open Tabs by Pressing the Spacebar on the close Tab button.
 
Pressing F6 again from the tab bar tool bar, you will hear Address and search bar Edit.
 
Pressing F6 again a third time will take you back to the original page you were on when you Pressed F6 the first time.
 
** Remember in my case  you can also  Press Control+Tab, to look at your   other two open tabs.
 
I can also  Press ALT+d, and Tab two times to my favorites folder, and I can arrow down through my favorits  folder.
 
** Remember after Pressing  ALT+d, you can also Tab across to other items besides Favorites.
 
I can also Press ALT+f, followed by the letter s, this will open the Edge settings.
 
I can also do an Internet search using either Bing or Google.
 
I can also look at my home page.
 
I can also play around in Edge using Jaws 2020 to learn how to use the Edge browser.
 
I can also go to,Accessibility with the new Microsoft Edge, the Link is below.
 
 
About using Favorites in the new Edge.
 
*My Jaws is set to auto forms mode.
 
How do I  add a folder to Favorites in Edge.
 
Press Control+Shift+O,Press Escape to pop out of forms mode.
 
Press Control+Home, to go to the top of the page.
 
Press B for button two times  ,you will hear
 
Add favorite Button.
 
Add folder Button.
 
Press Enter on Add folder Button.
 
Type the name for your new folder and Press Enter 
 
**tip, I created anew folder called bible in the Favorites bar.
 
Now Press Control+f4 to close this tab.
 
Now I am going to show you how I manage Favorites in Edge!
 
Press ALT+D, and Tab two times, you will hear, Favorites button menu, Press the down arrow key to see your Favorites.
 
As you Press the Down arrow key, you will hear something like this on my computer.
 
Favorites button menu‑
 
menu Manage favorites 1 of 6Ctrl+Shift+O.
 
Remove duplicate favorites 2 of 6.
 
bible sub menu3 of 6.
 
Microsoft account Home4 of 6https:************.com.
 
My Account5 of 6 https:******office.com
 
Other favorites sub menu‑6 of 6.
 
So managing your Favorites will be done right here in the Favorites Bar of the   Edge browser  using Jaws.
 
**For example, saving The new Windows 10 and Jaws group to Favorites in Edge.
 
First of all, go to our group home page in the Edge browser.
 
Press Control+D,to open the name  edit box for your new Favorite.
 
 
I like this name, so now I will Tab one time to choose where I want to save this Favorite site in the Edge browser.
 
On my computer I can  save it in three places.
 
1. I can save it right in the  Favorites Bar area where my accounts are.
 
2. I can save it in the bible folder.
 
3. I can save it in the  other folder. 
 
 Now remember the last saved location is remembered for you when you go to save another site.
 
I will choose the other folder  to save our group home page, I have it come up already as a start tab inEdge.
 
So whhen I tabbed one time from the name edit box,Jaws said Other combo box,I left it on other Favorites.
 
I Tabbed again to a more button.
 
I Tabbed again  to the  done button, I Pressed Enter.
 
My new site was successfully added to Favorites in the Edge browser.
 
Do the same steps  as above to add your favorite sites in Edge.
 
I moved all my bible sites into my bible folder.
 
Any sites that had long names, I saved them again with a shortened name, I deleted the sites with the long names.
 
 Just highlight any site you wish to delete, Press the Applications key, go down to delete and Press enter.
 
So now my Favorites are finally  organized in the new   Edge browser!

Re: transfer a file?

If you just activate that button and you are a free user, you will see advertising. You won't see it if you are a paid user.

You should right click the button if you are a free user and use save target or save link as, or whatever name your browser uses for the function.

The button is coded to appear as a button but it is really a link, which is why you can right click it.

Well considering he can’t get stuff to update he might not be able to do that.

Also, JAWS and outlook tend to work best together.

There are other options though  such as Mail for Windows 10, and Thunderburg (which are both free.)

This might be, but at any rate, Jim needs to start preparing now for the new PC, so when he does get it.  I think if I was Jim, I might think about using maybe another email program, and be done with it, but that depends on Jim.  Thank you for all this great advice!

It depends on which he has.

If he is subscribed to  a Microsoft365 subscription, then yes he’d be able to sign in and grab the office apps.

However, if this is a standalone office version which was provided to him free of cost, then Hellen  Keller services will have to go thru transferring the serial number to the new PC after deactivating the old one.

HI Monte,

This is quite interesting, I’m  saying this because if Jim has been using Outlook, I would think he has an account.  Who ever set up his Outlook account, I’m sure they created the account for him though.  As far as the serial and Product keys or numbers, I thought MS stopped requiring those numbers maybe a couple of years ago.  So this is something we might need to find out.  When I set up my Windows 10, I went to Microsoft’s web site, and I signed in, and sure enough, it quickly downloaded my Office, with all my settings from my other PC in regards to my Imap settings.

Jim, you do not need the disk.

You just need a micro soft account, which you can set up for free.

Then you can go to the micro soft store and download the outlook, or office program.

Hi Jim,

Is this unreliable pc you are referring to, the exact same one you have been working with for some months now? Is this unreliable PC the same one Microsoft couldn’t do anything with it? If this is the case, I wouldn’t buy a hard drive, as you don’t know if the issue is due to the hard drive although, it doesn’t sound like it is.  If you take it to the Geek Squad, chances are they just might perform a reset, and charge you, as you can do a reset yourself, and if you don’t feel comfortable enough to do that yourself, you can call MS, and ask them to set up your pc to perform a reset.  If you are going to get a new PC, and because you’ve dealt with this same issue, you might as well just deal with it until you get your new one.

I've paid for a sendspace Pro account for a wile now.
From what I could tell as a free user though there was a button which made

Jim,

Another thing you might try, if you can now go to the Microsoft.com  site,  see if you can sign in there, and see if you can find your account, and if you can this will give you a better idea so when you do get the new PC how it should work.  In other words, play around with it while you still have the Pc with the Outlook account on your current PC.

Jim,

When you get your new PC, can’t you just log in to the MS site with your Outlook password? The reason why I ask this, MS I’m sure has the copy in which I’m thinking you can after getting your new PC go to the MS web site, and it will ask you to log in, and you should get an option to download your Outlook right on to your new PC.  Maybe you can call MS and ask them if you can sign in to their web site when you get the new PC, so you can download your Outlook.

Hi all, the Hellen Keller foundation is going to give me a new computer in three to four months. Until then, I have this very unreliable one to work with. I can’t update anything. I can’t get jaws to install anything. I have version 2018, but it won’t install anything past that, even though I have been authorized to have later versions.

My win amp play won’t open properly etc. So I have to work with this, and I was just wondering if I head the geek squad install a new hard drive on this computer, it might solve my problems. Any ideas on this please?? Jim

It depends on which he has.

If he is subscribed to  a Microsoft365 subscription, then yes he’d be able to sign in and grab the office apps.

However, if this is a standalone office version which was provided to him free of cost, then Hellen  Keller services will have to go thru transferring the serial number to the new PC after deactivating the old one.

HI Monte,

This is quite interesting, I’m  saying this because if Jim has been using Outlook, I would think he has an account.  Who ever set up his Outlook account, I’m sure they created the account for him though.  As far as the serial and Product keys or numbers, I thought MS stopped requiring those numbers maybe a couple of years ago.  So this is something we might need to find out.  When I set up my Windows 10, I went to Microsoft’s web site, and I signed in, and sure enough, it quickly downloaded my Office, with all my settings from my other PC in regards to my Imap settings.

Jim, you do not need the disk.

You just need a micro soft account, which you can set up for free.

Then you can go to the micro soft store and download the outlook, or office program.

You will need the serial number to activate the software if you reinstall it.

You can find the serial number for outlook on your computer using a program likie the Belarc Advisor.

Janet, I can do that, but I need to figure out a way to keep my outlook program. I don’t have the disk, as the Hellen Keller service put the office program on the computer. From: main@TechTalk.groups.io [mailto:main@TechTalk.groups.io] On Behalf Of Janet

Hi Jim,

Is this unreliable pc you are referring to, the exact same one you have been working with for some months now? Is this unreliable PC the same one Microsoft couldn’t do anything with it? If this is the case, I wouldn’t buy a hard drive, as you don’t know if the issue is due to the hard drive although, it doesn’t sound like it is.  If you take it to the Geek Squad, chances are they just might perform a reset, and charge you, as you can do a reset yourself, and if you don’t feel comfortable enough to do that yourself, you can call MS, and ask them to set up your pc to perform a reset.  If you are going to get a new PC, and because you’ve dealt with this same issue, you might as well just deal with it until you get your new one. 

 

Janet
