Which browser is best for filling out info on a website?

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

 

Has anyone been experiencing difficulty trying to enter text in form fields using the latest versions of Firefox, Windows 10 update, and NVDA, such as when a search toolbar comes up when you seem to be in edit mode, and you find that you entered text into the wrong field?  Is there a way to fix this, or should I use a different browser?

 

Thanks for any input,

Typing, notepad, into the Run dialogue and pressing enter will also open Notepad.  If you want to put a Notepad shortcut icon on the desktop try the following.
1. Press, Windows key + R, to open the Run dialogue, type the following, shell:appsfolder, and press enter.  A list of all your programs will be opened.
2. Using 1st letter navigation find Notepad.
3. With Notepad highlighted open your context menu by pressing the applications key or press, Shift + F10, up arrow to, create shortcut, and press enter.
4. You'll get a dialogue stating that a shortcut can't be created here, would you like to put the shortcut on the desktop instead?  Press the spacebar on the, Yes, button andyou'll have a Notepad shortcut on the desktop.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

I recently got a new computer with Windows 10.  I like to creat small documents with Notepad but cannot seem to find it in Windows 10.  I did find something called Sticky Notes but can't figure out how to use it.  I am using JAWS 2020.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Isn't it wonderful?  Thirty years ago, we typed the name of a program to start it under DOS.  Now we Type the name of the program to start it under windows.  Can you say "full circle"?

Do you know how to use the start menu search feature that has been in Windows since Windows 7?  The explanation you were given is correct but if you don't know how to use the start menu search, a full explanation is what is needed.  I don't have Windows 10 and I can't assume that an explanation of how it is used in Windows 7 would be correct.  In broad outline, I would think it would, but someone who uses Windows 10 will, I hope explain it.  It is a very important feature in newer versions of Windows and I may have information to add that, I would think, would apply to the feature in all versions.

Excessive Jabbering In Settings & System

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
Running Win10 P 1909,18363.535 & Jaws.  When I press Windows key + I to go to settings, then navigate to the various categories Jaws reads abunch of stuff about each category, like below.
 Jaws reports:
System,  Display, sound, notifications, power

Devices,  Bluetooth, printers, mouse

Phone,  Link your Android, iPhone

Network & Internet,  Wi-Fi, airplane mode, VPN
I have tips, tricks and suggestions turned off under Settings / Notifications, but Jaws is still jabbering all this verbiage.  Is there something else that needs to be turned off to stop all this excessive jabbering, so Jaws only announces the category?  Thanks much.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

However, I like the Orbit for reading. It's comfortable in the hands
