Re: How to activate Chrome's new reader mode?

Hi Dennis,
 
I've installed it and run it with no problems.  This Chrome Canary version and the new Microsoft Edge Chromium look identical as far as I can tell.  I have the Google Chrome Canary on my Windows 7 computer and the MS Edge Chromium on my Widows 10 computer, and both versions work well with Jaws.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

Canary gives you a sneak peak of latest features.  I have ran it with no issues. Note it is not my default browser nor would I make it such.

It is called, just read!
Just press the Alt to open the virticle menu, go to more sub menu, and go to extensions.
You can go to the store on that page, and just type in Just Read, and that extension will come right up.
Just have that install to Chrome, go back to the extensions page, and make sure that is activated in your list of extensions that you have on Chrome!
It does indeed work great with CTRL+Shift+L!
I hope that helps.
Please ask again, if that doesn’t work!

Hi, in chrome Canary there is a reader mode you have to enable it first.   After this is done is there a keyboard short cut to enable it?    The article is below

The desktop version of Google Chrome’s browser is getting a reader mode, which can be used to strip out a page’s unnecessary background clutter to make an article easier to read. ZDNet notes that the feature launched today in Chrome’s experimental Canary release, and it should make its way to more stable versions of the browser in the future.

Reader modes have become a standard browser feature. Safari added its reader mode in 2010, and Firefox and Microsoft’s Edge browser have had one since at least 2015. All three allow you to change the color of the background of the page and adjust the font size to whatever is most comfortable to read.

The new reader mode isn’t entirely new for Chrome. It’s existed for a while in the Android version of the app where it’s called “Simplified view,” and it can be turned on from the browser’s accessibility menu. The desktop version’s reader mode is a renamed port of this accessibility option, as noted in a bug report that was spotted back in February.

If you want to enable the new functionality, then you’ll need to use an up-to-date version of Chrome’s experimental Canary release. Head over to “chrome://flags/#enable-reader-mode” toggle the feature on, and restart your browser. You can then put a page into reader mode by clicking the settings button on the top right of the browser and selecting “Distill page.”

Yes, the very opening of that article says Canary can be unstable, the last thing a JAWS user needs.

 

Curious thing about that phrase. The canary doesn’t signal impending disaster when it starts singing. It’s when it’s stopped singing that miners knew there was a problem because it meant the canary had run out of oxygen. In light of the instability warning, Jim’s caution is just right.

Re: searching for specific email

Adrian Spratt
 

There are some tricks to use with the shift-control-f search:

 

If searching for a term in the subject line, just type in the first field that appears and press enter.

If searching for something in the “To” or “From” fields, just tab and JAWS will make the appropriate announcement.

Here’s the really tricky one. If searching for a term inside an email, after pressing control-shift-f, tab once, down-arrow once, then shift-tab. You land in the correct edit field. Not exactly intuitive.

Each time you’ve typed in your search terms, wait for JAWS to announce “Find now” before pressing F6. Arrow down through the results.

I don't know why you've had that issue, but it definitely is not universal.

I just got done, two days ago, logging into my Paypal account; then sent a
payment to a friend; and logged back out using IE11 on my Windows 10
computer with Jaws.
For most things, I use Jaws 16.0.4468 because that is the last version to
work with Outlook Express.

I occasionally use the newest version of Jaws, but generally don't need to.

I would use it more, but for some reason, when I do, it breaks Jaws16
ability to work with Outlook Express without doing a repair of the older
Jaws installation.

I'm speculating here, but that might be due to the fact that when I updated
this PC to Windows 10, I installed 19 first before installing 16.

I am having a problem where I can be working away, or if I leave the

My volume drops to a level I can hardly hear. The only way to fix this,
is to unload jaws and restart the program.

Changing the volume in Volume control makes no difference.

Any clues? please.

Re: Serious problems with jaws 2019.1904 and win 10?

I don't experience this. I have my computer always running. I suspect it is a pc issue or windows issue not Jaws.

I am having a problem where I can be working away, or if I leave the computer for a while.

My volume drops to a level I can hardly hear. The only way to fix this, is to unload jaws and restart the program.

Changing the volume in Volume control makes no difference.

Any clues? please.


Rob.

Re: Asking an edge question.

It is a separate install. It works great with Jaws 2019

Speaking of edge, has any one used Microsoft Edge preview? If I install it,
does it install over the top of edge that comes with windows 10? I hear
it's very accessible with jaws 2019.

I'm using JAWS 2019 on win 10 and finding that IE 11 is still the best
browser for me. I've had no luck with Edge.

I don't know why you've had that issue, but it definitely is not universal.

I just got done, two days ago, logging into my Paypal account; then sent a
payment to a friend; and logged back out using IE11 on my Windows 10
computer with Jaws.
For most things, I use Jaws 16.0.4468 because that is the last version to
work with Outlook Express.

I occasionally use the newest version of Jaws, but generally don't need to.

I would use it more, but for some reason, when I do, it breaks Jaws16
ability to work with Outlook Express without doing a repair of the older
Jaws installation.

I'm speculating here, but that might be due to the fact that when I updated
this PC to Windows 10, I installed 19 first before installing 16.

Hello to my fellow jaws 2019 users.
I was having a serious problem with logging into my paypal account.
Don't know why IE11 wouldn't allow me to use my e-mail and password to log
in, and before I closed out the old account it also wouldn't allow me to
go to the send item and click on the combo box for person's name, e-mail
address and or phone number.
I was able to go into the combo box and jaws confirmed only while typing
in the address.
But when I would go to tap my left and or right arrow keys to confirm that
I had the e-mail correct, I would hear nothing.
Plus since I couldn't fill out the field, the next button wouldn't allow
me to click on it, I could see the next button but since the field wasn't
filled in, I couldn't click on the next button.
I tried using both ie 11 and Google to access my paypal account.
Now for some surprising good news.
So, I tried Edge for the heck of it.
It went through like a knife through butter.
The only issue I had and had to have a pp operator help me out with it to
confirm my bank since it wasn't in the list and Edge wouldn't allow me to
add my bank to the list.
After the PP operator confirmed my bank for me, I was able to ship my fair
share to my cousin for a up coming event.
So I still don't have edge as my default browser just yet.
But I need to see how blind friendly it might be with my Role Playing game
a little later this afternoon.
So the jury is still out on Edge.
Would anyone have a e-mail for feedback to submit this letter to the MS
disability hot line?
Just something for jaws to also know about my frustration and finally my
success to make both jaws and edge more blind friendly.
Hope this feedback will help out others and I'll keep everyone in the loop
on my progress of using edge with jaws.

I haven't had any of those problems.
Whatever is happening, its not a JAWS problem, if it were we'd all be having it.

Hello,

There are some folks on another mailing list saying that they’ve been
experiencing serious troubles with jaws 2019.1904 and windows 10.Â
They say the problems started after the last couple of windows updates,
particularly the update released on may 3.

Among the problems, they remark jaws not reading clipboard history,
jaws not reading properly  windows 10 settings, and sluggishness of
the screen reader, specially when typing.

Â

As far as I recall, I don’t remember no one here reporting those
problems, but I could be wrong. However, I use jaws 2019.1904, and I
installed those same windows updates but everything went smooth sailing
for me after that.

Â

Does anyone here know something about it?

I must have tried exporting the WLM contacts at least four or five times till I finally got it to work and to tell the truth, I am not totally sure how. The screen where you select the fields is erratic. Just keep trying and you should be able to get it done eventually. And Microsoft disability will not help with WLM because they no longer support it.

Good luck with your switch to Outlook. I tried that and it is so complicated I just said to heck with that and continue to use WLM and am quite happy with it. I am in the process of learning Thunderbird as a backup in case WLM ever really goes away.It does everything so easily and completely I enjoy using it.

Sorry for all these E-mails. I have fnally figured out that I am actually receiving E-mails in Outlook now after I found where they are being placed. I actually sent an E-mail a few minutes ago. Now, I must figure out how to have Outlook put me in the proper inbox when I start the program. I’m still dealing with those pesky contacts.

I am migrating from WLM to Outlook 2016 before getting a new PC. I am using the same settings as in WLM, but it just doesn’t work. I am currently using Windows 7. Sometimes, I hear a tone, but no E-mail is displayed. If I get an error message, JAWS doesn’t read it. All hep is apprciated.
