Hi Dani,

I have no experience with the ninja grill.
I have a Hamilton Beach indoor grill which is similar to the George Forman indoor grill.

My Ham Beach grill is totally basic. The timer and on off knob is all in one. When you turn it to set the time, it turns on the grill at the same time.
No temp control, but if you turn it on for a few minutes before putting that steak on the grill, you can get it spankin hot.
Like the Forman grill, the beach has grill plates in the bottom and lid of the grill. The grill can be used in the closed or opened flat position.
I took a quick look at amazon and there are more than one model of the Ninja.
There is one that is an air fryer as well as indoor grill.
Which one are you thinking about?

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with a Ninja Foodi Indoor Grill and whether it is accessible or can it easily be adapted with markings to be accessible.

Any thoughts or information on this will be greatly appreciated.

Gaming PCs are a thing of their own.  There is a missing enter on the number pad, there is not a missing plus, it's just not a huge key, like it typically is on more "office task oriented" machines (and where a large NumPad Enter generally exists just beneath that extra large plus key).

You don't seem to get my points, ever.  It's not about you, or what you want to do.  I agree wholeheartedly that any individual should do exactly as they see fit.  What I have a problem with is that you are willing to misrepresent what is common versus what is not.  That is a huge problem secondary to your claims about the keyboard layouts of the vast majority of laptops 15.6" and above.  Your statements do not match objective reality.  You had to dig up a brand most of us have never heard of, and that is a gaming machine, to prove your point.

I doubt you will lose settings. Usually, when you uninstall programs these days, the settings are retainded on the machine so the user can reinstall the program without such loss. If you want to be sure, then of course, save the settings if you wish but I am very doubtful that it is necessary.

Don't remove any shared files if asked.

Save your settings before you uninstall / reinstall so you don't have to configure the program again.
To save a copy of your Openbook settings do the following.
1. Go to the root of your OS drive,
C:\Program Files (x86)\Freedom Scientific\OpenBook\9.0\Users\default\Settings

2. Press the letter " U " for users and press enter.



3. Arrow to the " default " folder and press enter.
4. Now arrow to the settings folder, copy this folder and save it somewhere accessible.

Re: Unable to Launch Open Book

Hey Mike, were you ever able to install the paid version of 0 Patch?  I noticed that whenever a new patch was available, it would slow down my computer until I applied it.  And to apply it, I had to open the 0 Patch console from the "everything is okay" system tray icon  and wait until it finally launched, because when I first open the console, I would be confronted with the "program not responding" dialog, and had to wait a few minutes until the console was finally enabled and the patch automatically applied.  Who needs this aggravation?  But on another note, do you have any idea why I could not download Open Book 9.0 from the FS downloads page?  When I activated the download link, I heard a ding sound in Google Chrome, probably emanating from the Pop-up Sounds extension, but otherwise, I was not presented  with the file download dialog to save it. Is there perhaps a problem with their web site?

Re: Unable to Launch Open Book

Gerald Levy
 


Okay, I fixed the problem and now I am able to successfully launch Open Book again and scan and read documents normally.  But a little background on how I resolved the problem in case anyone else encounters the same issue.  First, I visited the Freedom Scientific Open Book downloads page and tried to download Open Book 9.0.  But for whatever reason, I could not download it using Google Chrome or Firefox.  Maybe there's a problem with their web site.  Next, I considered performing a System Restore.  But it turned out that I had no restore points.  I was mulling over what to do next and considered calling FS customer support for help, but thought things over again.  I remembered that I had just applied a new patch this morning to 0 Patch, the third-party security program that supposedly applies patches to keep Windows 7 protected  because, of course, this obsolete OS  is no longer supported by Microsoft.  I figured that uninstalling 0 Patch, which is mostly inaccessible, anyway, might fix the problem, because perhaps the patch I had applied this morning was somehow preventing Open Book from launching, flagging it as malware or some other malicious threat.  And sure enough, once I uninstalled 0 Patch using Revo Uninstaller, Open Book launched normally and worked as it should, scanning and reading back my mail.  So my advice for anyone who is still using0 Patch on their Windows 7 computer  is to get rid of 0 Patch, because it might cause unanticipated problems or otherwise interfere with certain programs like Open Book. It is almost totally inaccessible, and besides, the information on its interface is mostly incomprehensible gibberish, anyway, and it may not even be protecting your Windows 7 computer in the first place.  Don't even think about installing the paid version of 0 Patch, it they ever get around to making it accessible. Its downside outweighs any perceived benefits it might offer in terms of added Windows 7 protection.  In this case, reinstalling Open Book without uninstalling 0 Patch would probably not have fixed the problem, after all.

Re: Looking for a laptop replacement

enes sarıbaş
 

Why change something that works though? An applications key works perfectly well for anything I would want to do. There is literally no reason to change it. Also, with hypersensetive mousepads these days, you can accidentally hover your finger over a part of the touch pad and cause unintended actions. Not to mention moving your hand away from the keyboard and to the mouse just for a right click when you're working on the keyboard isn't time effective or ergonomic. 

As for laptop examples, look at the eluktronics rp15 vs 17 keyboards, and see a missing plus and enter key on the numb pad.

Enes,

          Find me a single, solitary example of a laptop with a full sized keyboard that does not have a number lock or plus key, then we can talk.  I have, literally, never seen one.  Anything with a built-in number pad that is multi-function, whether laptop or desktop, has a Num Lock key.  I've never seen an absent plus.  There are many desktop keyboards that have no applications key.

          The number of instances where SHIFT+F10 and Applications/Menu key are not equivalent is small.  I've observed that there are instances where they are not, but those instances are certainly not enough to make this any sort of major concern, and in all cases I can get what is needed to come up, or activate, by other means.  And in the case of a laptop, specifically, it is so simple to keep left and right mouse click while masking the mousepad area I do not understand why it's not done all the time.  Having real left and right click is far, far, far more convenient than having an applications key, as right click is its equivalent in every context I've ever tried it.  

           Your messages give the impression that "lack of keys" is a common issue on laptops that have full sized keyboards.  It very simply isn't.  I've had untold numbers of clients who were laptop users and desktop users, with native keyboards, and each group has equal access via a screen reader, occasionally using slightly different means.

Hmm, if you have a braille display, plain old Notepad, which comes with Windows, should do.

But if you want the braille reverse translated so that it can be spoken by your access software, check out Ed Sharp by Jamal Mazrui.

You find a detailed walkthru in the documentation of NVDA addons. Install NVDA remote, then oben NVDA menu with NVDA-n, go to tools and select manage addons. In this windows which lists all of your installed addons go to remote support and tab to the help button and your tutorial is in front of you 😊

microsoft office 365 is it accessible with NVDA?

Mário Navarro
 

Hello all.
can someone please confirm if the version of office 365 home, or the personal version is accessible with NVDA?
if so, what is the percentage rate from 1 to 10?
the main office apps that I will use are: word, and excel.
How does NVDA work with these two apps?
can I invest without accessibility concerns in office 365 home, or personal with NVDA?
I always got used to using the office pack 2016, or 2019.
but now I need other types of services with office 365.
and my concern is whether I will have the same accessibility with office 365.
I know that the structure and layout are different, but what interests me is whether NVDA works normally as well as in the office pack, or there are differences in accessibility.
please can someone give me some tips on this subject?
thank you all.
cheers.

Hi All,

 

Okay, below is the Beta 3 download link for 32 and 64 bit systems, the Beta 3 report form link and what's new in the Beta 3 J2021.2010.47release.


Beta 3 32 and 64 Bit Download Link:

 

 

Beta Report Form Link:

 

 

What's new in Beta 3 for Jaws, ZoomText and Fusion:

 

Enhancements in JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion 2021 Public Beta 3

 

The following is a list of improvements made between Public Beta 2 and Public Beta 3. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.

 

Enhancements in JAWS 2021 and Fusion 2021 Public Beta 3
list of 29 items
• Added the ability for Sharky to tell you a joke, currently only available in the English Version and for JAWS. Coming soon to other languages.
• Removed volume change announcements that some users reported hearing in Public Beta 2 when using certain keyboards and headsets with multimedia controls.
• In response to customer feedback, we have moved the link to open Convenient OCR results directly in Word to the bottom of the results window rather than
the top to make it less distracting.
• For Voice Assistant in the German Version of JAWS and ZoomText, the word "hey" has been added to the wake words Sharky and Zoomy. Therefore, you now
open Voice Assistant by saying "Hey Sharky" or "Hey Zoomy."
• Improved the results returned for Voice Assistant in German, which was based on customer feedback.
• Resolved a problem seen in Notepad where the flashing cursor on a braille display was blinking faster than normal after selecting all text in a short
document. This also made it difficult to read flash messages on the display.
• Updated Voice Assistant so you can now say "settings center" or "quick settings" to access those utilities.
• Resolved a reported issue when using the new Braille Panning feature which helps avoid blank spaces on the display. When moving in HTML or the Virtual
buffer, there were certain edit controls in the Chrome and Edge browsers where text was not being displayed as expected when panning.
• Resolved a reported issue in Outlook where JAWS was not echoing text as expected when typing in the body of a new message with Typing Echo set to Words.
• Removed the announcement of Tutor Messages in Microsoft Office Ribbons as they were very verbose when attempting to navigate.
• When opening a message in Outlook, resolved a reported issue where JAWS would not always start reading from the top if it has previously been opened.
It would often start reading from the previous location where you stopped reading the last time.
• Resolved an issue in MS Mail where JAWS was reporting list start and end info for each item in a list.
• Users can now use Voice Assistant to Toggle certain features of JAWS and Fusion. Screen Shade, Audio Ducking, Speech on Demand, and Virtual PC Cursor
can all be toggled if you say the word toggle, followed by the feature. And in the December Update of 2021, we will make it so you can just say the name
of the feature, and it will toggle the state and avoid the need for the word toggle.
• Resolved issues for the Picture Smart Feature where the "more results" link in the Results Viewer, was not properly getting more results and displaying
them as expected.
• Updated the Help for Voice Assistant by removing and adding some commands for the current update.
• Resolved an issue when selecting all text (CTRL+A) in a large Word document. This action would cause JAWS to hang for several seconds.
• Resolved a reported issue where exporting your Settings, could cause instability as you navigated the dialogs while using this feature in JAWS.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS would not remain in Forms Mode, while trying to compose email messages in OE Classic.
• Resolved several issues related to migrating settings from previous versions of JAWS to JAWS 2021.
• Resolved issues for customers reporting that JAWS did not recognize ScaleRichView controls used in certain editors. This custom window class will be
recognized by default in JAWS and Fusion.
• Resolved an issue reported where braille was not tracking to the Navigation Bar in Outlook 365 or Outlook 2016 when pressing F6.
• Additional User Settings are collected when running the FS Support Tool. This will help Technical Support to gather all the relevant data to help solve
customer issues.
• JAWS would leave Forms Mode and the Virtual Cursor would be on when creating an email in Thunderbird Email. This occurred when navigating with arrow
keys.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading the Auto Complete options in the Chrome Address bar.
• Increased the size of the Speech History Buffer to allow for 500 strings rather than just 50 when you press INSERT+SPACE, H to review the most recent
strings sent to the synthesizer.
• The feature "Keyboard Lock" has been added to JAWS Command Search. To activate it, press INSERT+SPACE, L. This locks the keyboard and only allows informational
keystrokes to be used. To find the keystroke using JAWS Command Search, type the word "lock."
• Resolved reported issues with early public beta versions of 2021 where third-party scripts were not compiling. This was an issue when using WordPerfect
and Quattro Pro.
• Updated braille drivers provided by Papenmeire.
• Resolved reported issue in Power Point 365 in the Notes Area of a slide where JAWS was saying graphic while navigating text in the note.
list end

 

Enhancements in Fusion 2021 Public Beta 3
list of 3 items
• Resolved an issue when composing an email in Outlook where tracking by Fusion in the magnified view would fail. This occurred if you first selected text,
and then started typing to replace it.
• Resolved an issue where the Focus highlight is not tracking in Office Ribbons when JAWS Virtual Ribbon is enabled.
• Resolved an issue where Braille Viewer and Text Viewer were not remaining persistent and restarting after rebooting. They should stay active until the
users shuts them off in the future.
list end

 

Enhancements in ZoomText 2021 Public Beta 3
list of 4 items
• Resolved an issue in Mozilla Firefox 82 where ZoomText Focus Enhancement was failing to track as you read while navigating in Firefox.
• Resolved a Voice Assistant issue when trying to increase or decrease magnification to a Fractional Level. For example, asking Zoomy to set Magnification
to 1.2, resulted in getting 12X. the decimal point was being excluded.
• Resolved an issue where ZoomText speech would not stop when saying a Voice Assistant command. The feature was designed to interrupt speech.
• Resolved an issue in the Outlook Inbox when your Windows Display Setting Zoom Level is higher than 100%, and you navigate the inbox. The view is shifted
to the right as you navigate making it impossible to see the left edge of the window.
list end

Re: Seeking Recommendations For The Most Accessible Online RSS Reader

Hope Williamson
 

Hi David, Either The Old Reader, or Feedbin. I've personally tested
Bazqux, NewsBlur, and Inoreader, and found them not usable at all. The
other 2 are probably fine, but since I don't like the river format, in
other words, I don't like my RSS reader to look like my FB and/or
Twitter feed, I only briefly tested them.

    Unfortunately though The Old Reader and Feedbin both limit feed
items. The Old Reader removes unread items after a year. Not only that
but the premium plan is $6 per month for 1500 feeds. Feedbin will simply
limit the amount of items in a feed. For instance a feed that should
have thousands of items like the Hacker News  firehose feed would have 500.

    Right now I'm using simplerssreader.com. I've used the paid
instance of Miniflux before, https://reader.miniflux.app, but after a
database outage they started archiving unread items after 60 days.

I'm specifically referring to the Web-based versions of these services
and not their iOS versions.
Here's why I'm asking. I actually use a fabulous RSS reader for iOS
called Lire (pronounced Lear. In previous versions of Lire I could
perform a search and in the search results it would offer the
capability to plug in feeds from Google News and Bing News with those
key words. As an example, if I searched for "Apple Accessibility" one
of the search results would be "Apple Accessibility, Google News"
which would be the RSS feed for the Google News feed for all news
articles from Google News containing the key words Apple
Accessibility. Unfortunately, in the newest version of Lire this
feature had to be removed. For me I think that the easiest way to add
these feeds would be to do so on the Web. Since Lire supports the feed
readers I mentioned earlier once I copy and paste the URLs of the
feeds into my list of feeds Lire would then automatically pick those up.
Many thanks.

What's new in Beta 3 for Jaws, ZoomText and Fusion:

 

Enhancements in JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion 2021 Public Beta 3

 

The following is a list of improvements made between Public Beta 2 and Public Beta 3. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.

 

Enhancements in JAWS 2021 and Fusion 2021 Public Beta 3
list of 29 items
• Added the ability for Sharky to tell you a joke, currently only available in the English Version and for JAWS. Coming soon to other languages.
• Removed volume change announcements that some users reported hearing in Public Beta 2 when using certain keyboards and headsets with multimedia controls.
• In response to customer feedback, we have moved the link to open Convenient OCR results directly in Word to the bottom of the results window rather than
the top to make it less distracting.
• For Voice Assistant in the German Version of JAWS and ZoomText, the word "hey" has been added to the wake words Sharky and Zoomy. Therefore, you now
open Voice Assistant by saying "Hey Sharky" or "Hey Zoomy."
• Improved the results returned for Voice Assistant in German, which was based on customer feedback.
• Resolved a problem seen in Notepad where the flashing cursor on a braille display was blinking faster than normal after selecting all text in a short
document. This also made it difficult to read flash messages on the display.
• Updated Voice Assistant so you can now say "settings center" or "quick settings" to access those utilities.
• Resolved a reported issue when using the new Braille Panning feature which helps avoid blank spaces on the display. When moving in HTML or the Virtual
buffer, there were certain edit controls in the Chrome and Edge browsers where text was not being displayed as expected when panning.
• Resolved a reported issue in Outlook where JAWS was not echoing text as expected when typing in the body of a new message with Typing Echo set to Words.
• Removed the announcement of Tutor Messages in Microsoft Office Ribbons as they were very verbose when attempting to navigate.
• When opening a message in Outlook, resolved a reported issue where JAWS would not always start reading from the top if it has previously been opened.
It would often start reading from the previous location where you stopped reading the last time.
• Resolved an issue in MS Mail where JAWS was reporting list start and end info for each item in a list.
• Users can now use Voice Assistant to Toggle certain features of JAWS and Fusion. Screen Shade, Audio Ducking, Speech on Demand, and Virtual PC Cursor
can all be toggled if you say the word toggle, followed by the feature. And in the December Update of 2021, we will make it so you can just say the name
of the feature, and it will toggle the state and avoid the need for the word toggle.
• Resolved issues for the Picture Smart Feature where the "more results" link in the Results Viewer, was not properly getting more results and displaying
them as expected.
• Updated the Help for Voice Assistant by removing and adding some commands for the current update.
• Resolved an issue when selecting all text (CTRL+A) in a large Word document. This action would cause JAWS to hang for several seconds.
• Resolved a reported issue where exporting your Settings, could cause instability as you navigated the dialogs while using this feature in JAWS.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS would not remain in Forms Mode, while trying to compose email messages in OE Classic.
• Resolved several issues related to migrating settings from previous versions of JAWS to JAWS 2021.
• Resolved issues for customers reporting that JAWS did not recognize ScaleRichView controls used in certain editors. This custom window class will be
recognized by default in JAWS and Fusion.
• Resolved an issue reported where braille was not tracking to the Navigation Bar in Outlook 365 or Outlook 2016 when pressing F6.
• Additional User Settings are collected when running the FS Support Tool. This will help Technical Support to gather all the relevant data to help solve
customer issues.
• JAWS would leave Forms Mode and the Virtual Cursor would be on when creating an email in Thunderbird Email. This occurred when navigating with arrow
keys.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading the Auto Complete options in the Chrome Address bar.
• Increased the size of the Speech History Buffer to allow for 500 strings rather than just 50 when you press INSERT+SPACE, H to review the most recent
strings sent to the synthesizer.
• The feature "Keyboard Lock" has been added to JAWS Command Search. To activate it, press INSERT+SPACE, L. This locks the keyboard and only allows informational
keystrokes to be used. To find the keystroke using JAWS Command Search, type the word "lock."
• Resolved reported issues with early public beta versions of 2021 where third-party scripts were not compiling. This was an issue when using WordPerfect
and Quattro Pro.
• Updated braille drivers provided by Papenmeire.
• Resolved reported issue in Power Point 365 in the Notes Area of a slide where JAWS was saying graphic while navigating text in the note.
list end

 

Enhancements in Fusion 2021 Public Beta 3
list of 3 items
• Resolved an issue when composing an email in Outlook where tracking by Fusion in the magnified view would fail. This occurred if you first selected text,
and then started typing to replace it.
• Resolved an issue where the Focus highlight is not tracking in Office Ribbons when JAWS Virtual Ribbon is enabled.
• Resolved an issue where Braille Viewer and Text Viewer were not remaining persistent and restarting after rebooting. They should stay active until the
users shuts them off in the future.
list end

 

Enhancements in ZoomText 2021 Public Beta 3
list of 4 items
• Resolved an issue in Mozilla Firefox 82 where ZoomText Focus Enhancement was failing to track as you read while navigating in Firefox.
• Resolved a Voice Assistant issue when trying to increase or decrease magnification to a Fractional Level. For example, asking Zoomy to set Magnification
to 1.2, resulted in getting 12X. the decimal point was being excluded.
• Resolved an issue where ZoomText speech would not stop when saying a Voice Assistant command. The feature was designed to interrupt speech.
• Resolved an issue in the Outlook Inbox when your Windows Display Setting Zoom Level is higher than 100%, and you navigate the inbox. The view is shifted
to the right as you navigate making it impossible to see the left edge of the window.
list end

Re: Finding the "Unread" messages in Outlook 365?

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

Vicky,

         There is a "Next Unread Message" command, but it is not on the standard ribbon - and I mean the Message Ribbon when you're in a window reading a message.  You can customize the ribbon, add a new group to the ribbon, then place the Next Unread Message control in that group.  It is accessible via keyboard shortcut once it's been placed in a group on the ribbon.

          If you would like me to create a step-by-step instruction set for doing this let me know.  I just did it "quick and dirty" in Outlook 2016 but would have to step through from the outset and record the keyboard shortcuts and things you have to look for during the process.

If you are using the command NVDA key n and the menu doesn't open, you can try opening it from the system tray. Right click the NVDA icon and the menu will open if it can.
