Yes, having the same in Windows 10 as well – taking the focus away by pressing alt and tab usually does the trick.

 

 

Many Thanks

Subject: [jaws-users] Issue With WINDOWS 10, EXCEL And JAWS

 

Hello,

 

I am using the latest version of JAWS 2019, with Microsoft Office 365 on a WINDOWS 10 Lenovo Yoga 530 Two-In-One Laptop. I believe that the WINDOWS 10 Build is Version 1809.

 

Whilst most of the Office 365 apps work brilliantly with JAWS, I have an issue with EXCEL. When I open an existing workbook, or choose to start with a blank workbook, JAWS announces the cell reference, with any cell contents, when they come up, as expected. If I use the arrow keys, to move to an adjacent cell, that is also read with any relevant content. If I then use the arrow keys again, everything goes silent and I can arrow around the sheet as much as I will, without any feedback from JAWS. This issue happens consistently. If I access the ribbon etc, that is spoken fine, however, when I go back to the sheet itself, nothing is verbalised.

 

I have not changed any JAWS settings, in respect to EXCEL and am bewildered why this issue is present. I use another Lenovo laptop model at work and do not have any issues, albeit I am still using WINDOWS 7 there.

 

I have written to VFO and am still awaiting a response a week later.

 

Has anyone came across this issue and, if so, were you able to fix it, either permanently or by finding a workaround?

 

Many thanks in advance, for your feedback. I am based in Scotland, United Kingdom.

how to get mazilla thunderbird to tell me therer is an attachment in A meesage when looking threw my messages in my inbox

Casey
 

hi I have A message in my inbox that has an attachment.

And when I was using outlook 2016 and Jaws 2019 it would tell me that the message had an  attachment with it.

When I was going threw my inbox.

But now i am going threw using thunderbird and Jaws doesn't tell me that A message has an attachment.

How do I make this tell me that the message or messages have an attachment while I am going threw my messages in my inbox just like?

I have the preview pain turned off and so what else can I set or change to make this work the way I would like it to?

I believe you have to set your default email account to Thunderbird in Windows settings.
Did you also set Firefox as your default browser?

Re: firefox email

Hi. Are you using windows 10? Have you set thunderbird to be your default mail client? If not, here's how.

Go to settings with windows I. Type default apps in to the search field. Arrow down to default apps and press enter. Tab through until you hear the button for default mail client. Press spacebar to activate the button. Tab to Thunderbird and press spacebar to choose thunderbird. Alt f4 to close. Now thunderbird should come up as your default mail client.

Re: Searching my computer in windows-10

Kevin <kleeva5@...>
 

If you're using the search box on the Start menu, you often get better results if you search for a specific category of results.

One way of limiting  a search to a category is by typing the category followed by a colon followed by your search terms. For example, if you are looking

for a document which is either named fred or contains the word fred, you can type doc:fred. You can use the following words to specify the category which

is searched: app, doc, folder, music, photo, setting, video, and web. Where appropriate you can also use the plural form of these words, so for example,

you could search using either app:fred or apps:fred. You can also use document rather than doc, if you really want to type the extra letters.

Re: Searching my computer in windows-10

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi John,
 
Check out what's below and an explanation of the program is below Gerald's message.  Also Jaws accessible.

Try free Everything Search, which I have found to be a great little accessible file finder:

http://download.cnet.com/Everything/3000-2379_4-10890746.html

Gerald
This small software application bypasses Windows search with a lightning quick interface and real-time results for all of the files and folders in your
local hard drive or any subsection of it. The software doesn't do much more than search, but its efficiency, effectiveness, stability, and low system resource
usage make it a keeper utility.
 
The software is split into two main controls: the search box and the results page. When you first run Everything, it will create an index of all the files
and folders on your machine. Unless you have millions of files, the index will be created before you know it. Searching is done in real time, as you type--i.e.
the search term "rad" returns 379 objects, "radio" returns 160, and "radiohead" returns 71, all instantly.
 
The results screen can display seven different fields: Name, Path, Size, Last Write Time, Creation Time, Last Access Time, and Attributes. Sorting by any
field takes a little longer than searching, but only slows down noticeably when you sort more than 1,000 results.
 
Everything also lets users connect to HTTP, FTP, or ETP (Everything Transfer Protocol) servers to allow remote searches, but its functionality is mostly
singular--searching your local PC very quickly with minimal resources, and it accomplishes that well. If you've never struggled with Windows search before,
you might pass Everything by; if your computer is a disorganized mess with files all over the place, Everything might be a wonderful gift.
 
 
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that somebody screwed up.

Re: help with win 10 audable app.

Audiobookfan
 

As you've discovered, the Audible app isn't very accessible, although you might try this first: Go to the Audible website on your computer with your preferred browser and follow the link to your library. The books in your library are arranged in a table, so hitting the letter T will take you to that table. Then, you can navigate through the books in your library by hitting the letter G to jump to the book cover graphic for each book. Click on the download link for the book you want to download and see if it will launch the app and download the book. If so, you don't need to try the next step.

If the above doesn't work, then you need to uninstall the app and go to the Audible website and download the Audible Download Manager. You find this program by choosing the link to download Audible for an older computer. Audible will recognize that your running Windows 10, but there's a link on that page that will take you to a page where you can download the Audible Download Manager. Unless you want to listen to books on your computer, you don't need to download the Audible Manager, only the Audible Download Manager. Once you've installed the Audible Download Manager, you can use the steps above to download books from your library through the Audible website.

Hope this helps.

Re: Another Winamp Question

JM Casey
 

I know I got rid of something to do with portable devices, the CDDB/gracenote plugin (which no longer works at all anyway), and I think something to do with the media library as well (I don’t use it).

I can’t exactly tell you without reinstalling the entire programme because, well, the plugins no longer exist on my system, and while I should have documented this, probably, I did not exactly keep track of what I was about at th e time.

But go to “plugins” and you will see five or so different categories of plugins, and the ones installed for each category in a list view. Each one controls some aspect of winamp’s function. There are input and output (the former mostly decoders and the latter stuff for communicating with your sound hardware/operating system), visualisation, effects, and general purpose. Look around these and you will likely find some stuff you just don’t need or use, and you can get rid of them if you like. I’d leave the input and output ones alone mostly though if that aspect of everything is working correctly.

That is exactly what I meant though. I haven’t seen this prompt/message in years, and I have multiple USB mass storage devices that I plug in and unplug every day. I seem to remember being able to dispense with the message 8before* I got rid of the plugin, but now, yeah, I’m not toally sure. I disposed of two or three plugins because I noticed that Winamp suddenly became slow to load; this was one of them that is easy to sacrifice, since there’s no reason Winamp needs to know or care what kind of storage device you are using.

Hi Jean,

 

No, that’s not what I meant.

 

Winamp has a portable device detection plug-in that recognizes when the computer is connected to a USB device.  The problem is that Winamp doesn’t distinguish between external drives, USB sticks or other devices, and so it brings up the dialog box for every thing that’s plugged into the USB port, though it doesn’t seem to think my printer is a media device.  LOL.

Strange, I do vaguely remember this message but don’t recall having accessibility issues with it. It was annoying though. Winamp does not need a plugin to access a USB drive/stick/whatever as this is comletely operating system-dependent, normally.

So, I uninstalled the plugin quite some time back, I think.

Hi Dennis,

 

I am using 5.66 and I’ve not found a way to turn this feature off and I’ve been using it since forever.  Smiles.

 

I don’t know what the new version is like, so I can’t say if it does the same thing or not.

I’m afraid the dialog box is completely inaccessible with any screen reader.

 

I’ve tried Jaws, NVDA and Narrator but to no effect.

Hi Tom,

 

First I don't use Winamp so my suggestions are only that.  Have you tried pressing, Alt + Y, for yes, or pressing, Alt + N, for no?  Also you could try tabbing to see if you can highlight the Yes and No buttons or try the Touch Cursor to see if you can sneak up on those rascals.


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

Hello, everyone.

 

Within the past few wekes, whenever I try to play an audio file from my external hard drive with Winamp, I get a message that says something like:  “Winamp has detected a an external drive;  do you want Winamp to access  this drive?”.

 

There is a yes/no button, but I can’t get to it.

 

I have tried enter, and the space bar.  I also have tried rooting the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor, but have had no luck.

 

Occasionally, after trying, I can get the message to play, but then I get an error message about reporting the problem to Winamp.

 

And, once I get these messages, the only way I can get rid of them is to completely shut down and re-boot my computer.

 

Has anyone experienced this issue?  If so, how can I respond, or better yet, how can I turn this anoying notification off?

 

I’m using windows 10 version 1809 with the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

Thanks!

Hey Glenn.

 

It is called a plug-in, but it’s not something you install. Winamp comes with a load of plugins that are already running by default. It needs some of these to even function/play sound through your audio hardware. If you go to plugins in the preferences, you can configure, or uninstall, or replace, any of the existent plugins. Without installing anything, you will already see several there in the list. One of those is the one for portable devices.

I did not install any plugins and I get this when I have something plugged into my computer.

I would like to get rid of this annoyance as well, although I'm able to close the message.

It would be nice if there was a checkbox that says

don't prompt for this in the future

like some prompts have.
