I have been using Quicken 2003 for years as my check register.  However I recently bought a new computer running latest Windows 10 and latest Jaws 2018.  I tried to install Quicken 2003 from the program disk but cannot get it to accept my personal.qdf file from my old computer.  So I would like to know if there is another fairly simple check register I can install on my new computer.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I was told to create a bug report before the NFB and ACB could go after them.
Been there and done that with no luck there as well.
I know a person I was working with back in 2012 when I was a ADA under cover cop with the ATM program.
I think I’ll ship him a e-mail and ask if he could check into this for us.
Best of luck.

Both my younger brother who purchased Quicken 2018 and I have been calling and calling quicken.

Because for some odd reason since around 2015, the fields are not labeled and it isn’t screen reader friendly.

It’s like you have blank squares and they have no nametags so you don’t know what the fields are or out to fill out anything.

We’ve asked until we’re blue in the face.

If you get anywhere with them?

Please let me know so that I can pass the info off to my younger brother as well please?

I can ship you quickens contact info if you would like?

Rearrangeing my settings

Fred Adams
 

I am using W10 and latest jaws
and during the last windows
update my settings were
changed. When I press windows
key plus "I" my settings
appear vertically instead of
horizontally as they should.
I have searched around but I
can not find any setting that
would correct this. If
someone could give me info on
how to correct this I would
appreciate it very much.

Thanks much,

Re: Word 2016 starts with "quick keys" on in Windows 10

Adrian Spratt
 

Thanks, Ann. FS/VFO's explanation for this setting is that it affects only "say all" reading, but I turned it off anyway and so far "quick keys" is off each time I return to Word. It looks like you've solved it.

Under settings, there used to be an accessibility item. also, you had to turn on Braille in settings, whether or not you had a Braille display. this may not still be the case, but it made a biiiiig difference a couple of years ago.

Hello,
I believe you need to turn off the JAWS virtual cursor to work with the
sheet. You do this by using the command JAWS key plus z. Once you turn
off the cursor you will need to use the tab key to move around to find
the sheet.

Re: JAWS and Chrome stop working together after a while

Hi Adrian.

I don't know what is up with Chrome. I have noticed it seem to "break" on occasion but I still use Firefox a lot more often, so am not sure what causes this to happen, or if my experience is the same as yours.

To get system info, open the run box with windows+r and type "msinfo32"

Subject: [jaws-users] JAWS and Chrome stop working together after a while

On my new Windows 10 machine, JAWS completely stops reading anything in Chrome. Each time I reboot, they work fine together, but not for more than, say, an hour. Not only won't JAWS read content, but it also can't read menus, etc. When this happens, I select the webpage's address, and even though JAWS can't read it, I can paste the copy into IE and open the page there. Since Chrome is now my default, this is a serious limitation.

This machine is solid state. I'm confident I have enough RAM, but I haven't yet figured out where I can get system information and so can't report the exact number. Windows key+pause no longer does the trick, nor does opening properties on the C drive.

Any ideas?

Re: PDF Question

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

It will not surprise me if JAWS supports this somehow, but I don't have that luxury when reading in a PDF reader.

My workaround method is to create a notepad file where I note the PDF page number (as these don't necessarily match the print page equivalent) and three or four words of the end of the last phrase I read.  The next time I can shoot straight to the page and use the phrase for a search and pick up where I left off.  When you're dealing with material that's hundreds of pages long, and very often scanned rather than having been created via a method that gives a perfectly clean PDF, this saves a lot of time.


PDF Question

Mike Rogers
 

I'm reading a pdf book, sent by a friend. Is there a way to bookmark where I left off and can I mark where I left off?

Re: Need check register for Windows 10 computer

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

GNUCash might work.  See:  https://gnucash.org/features.phtml

It's gross overkill in terms of features, and I have not played with it as far as accessibility goes, but it is open source and a check register is one of its major functions.

Others you might want to look at include KMyMoney, Microsoft's own Money Plus Sunset Deluxe
 which is free (though it may not work on Windows 10, you'd have to try it, last release was in 2010), or even possibly hledger (though I'd say that one's least likely).


adding a gmail account to outlook

Kurt Miller
 

Hi all,

I am trying to add another gmail account to my Outlook 2010 an am having trouble. It isn’t trying to go through itself but wanting me to put the server info in manually. Does anyone know this info? I googled it but don’t understand what all the numbers and crap it is telling me. outlook is not using the same phrasing as the googled info so don’t know what info to put where.

Thanks,

Kurt
