Judy,
Try what someone suggested for Amazon's check box that I could not check.
Position the cursor on the button, and do a pass-key-through
Insert + #3 on the number row
and for the key to pass through, try the space bar.
Let me know if that works.

Subject: [jaws-users] Problems with some of the buttons on the ZipRecruiter site.

Hello Again,

 

I’ve found some buttons that will not activate when pressed.  These are the Add Keyword and Add Location buttons on the improve searches page.  I’ve also noticed that the Apply buttons to jobs don’t appear to activate, yet I have received autoreplies from the company.

 

Is there a work-around for these buttons?  I have contacted Support as well.

 

Thanks very much.

I’ve never had success with Webvism and the add-on is not supported anymore anyway, so I’m not going to suggest that.

To be honest I’ve never successfully solved this problem without sighted assistance, if there is no audio option.

Sometimes even when there is an audio option, it’s too garbled to make much sense of and the result Is long minutes of frustration and tedium.

But it seems like the audio ones are actually getting better, as a rule.

 

There are other solving tools for the visual ones. I believe most of them charge a small fee for use and I have  never tried.

Maybe look for something called Rumola. I believe it’s an add-on for Chrome.

Re: Jaws 2019 beta and pronunciation dictionary

Cristóbal
 

I haven't messed around with the beta yet, but if this is in fact true, it
needs to be reported to VFO. There's no way this can't be anything more than
a bug and an actual feature removal. There are too many of us who are
multi-lingual and even if a second language wasn't a consideration, simply
no longer having the correct pronunciation available for a non-English
language name, place or thing would be all sorts of crazy.

Hi all.
Using the 2019 beta, I have unfortunately discovered that dictionary entries
can no longer be assigned to specific languages, speech engines and voices.
Those combo boxes no longer exist in the dialogue. All dictionary entries
can now only be for all languages and speech engines. This ability to
compile different dictionaries for different languages and speech engines is
one of the things I've always liked best about Jaws. Now, it's gone. I don't
want to add too many English pronunciations of foreign words, as I always
have, lest they be mispronounced in their original languages because of my
phonetic respellings.
Am I crazy, or is this happening to others?

Re: Key label Mute

Rebecca Lineberger
 

Always more than one way to do everything. Smile. In the search box, it made sense to me to type k for keyboard or key labels. If I'd thought of m for manage key labels, it would have cut out some steps.
JAWS is not any more difficult than the Window-Eyes control panel was. W-E users knew it because we were used to it, but when I tutored someone trying to learn the W-E free version for Office, she found Window-Eyes much more complicated than JAWS.
As always, the more we know about the programs we use, the better. Smile.

Hi James,
 
Check out the note below:

1. Open the Settings Center with the keystroke, Insert / Jaws key + 6, on the number row, and press, Control, Shift + D, to open the Settings Center default
all applications.
2. Down arrow to, User, and right arrow to open.
3. Down arrow to, Lower audio volume of programs when Jaws speaks, and press the spacebar to uncheck this box.
4. Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close.
This feature can also be tobbled on & off by using a Layered Keystroke.  Press, Insert / Jaws Key + Spacebar, lut up and press the letter, D, to toggle
Audio Ducking on / off.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi,

 

Fkirst off,  Good to know that jaws now fixed the autofill of contacts.  Second, what ever problems you might be having should be reported using the beta report form as I think that would allow vfo to look into it and get it fixed.  I have not installed the beta yet, but do have itdownloaded and will try to get it installed and tested.  Thanks.

Respected friends

I have managed to download and installed JAWS 2019 first public beta successfully!

As Eric stated it was muted alt+tab, In windows 10 mail app, accessibility has been improved such as, while typing email address, that address JAWS speaks

CC and BCC has become accessible! Also it took little time to install and load!

Other promises were not fulfilled!

I was expecting that signature edit field will become accessible but that didn’t happened!

Note:

This is not accessible with NVDA and narrator either!

It is nice to be important but it is more important to be nice!

Subject: Re: [jaws-users] Previous Captia Inquiry

 

I’ve never had success with Webvism and the add-on is not supported anymore anyway, so I’m not going to suggest that.

To be honest I’ve never successfully solved this problem without sighted assistance, if there is no audio option.

Sometimes even when there is an audio option, it’s too garbled to make much sense of and the result Is long minutes of frustration and tedium.

But it seems like the audio ones are actually getting better, as a rule.

 

There are other solving tools for the visual ones. I believe most of them charge a small fee for use and I have  never tried.

Maybe look for something called Rumola. I believe it’s an add-on for Chrome.

Morning all.

 

I believe that this subject has been approached before, but my sometimers is in high gear today.

 

Can anyone give me some suggestions on how to deal with captias on a website. I am applying for a job, and the registration site has a captia at the beginning of the site. Using JAWS 2018 and Windows 10 on a Dell laptop. Thanks in advance.

I don’t know the reason it never worked for me, but I tried installing it on two separate occasions/systems, successfully got an account (even though in the end I had to ask for invitations from a friend), and only ever got it to give me a “no capsha found” message. Some of its bells and whistles seemed to interfere with normal firefox functionality too. In the end I decided it wasn’t worth the trouble and just killed it. I’m glad it works for you and some others, but for me, it’s a non-starter, and not even worth another glance, since it’s abandonware now, and I’ve moved on to Firefox Quantum, or well, almost anyway (JAWS still won’t play too nice with it….)

I have had no end of success with Webvisum and Firefox.

 

In fact, I haven’t updated my Firefox in so long because I'm reading posts the Webvisum plug-in doesn’t work with newer versions of Firefox, but I don’t really mind much since I solely use it for CAPTCHA solving in any case, but yet.  Out of all the years I’ve been using the add-on, I’ve only failed to solve the CAPTCHA twice, and in each instance, it asked me to resubmit and the CAPTCHA was solved on the second try.

 

So, again, I’ve no idea why people rag on Webvisum so much.  Like I said, I’ve had nothing but success with it.

Hi, Again, Rebecca. See what I mean about too many keystrokes? Could
be a lot more efficient. Thanks for the info, though. Too much noise
with all those keys spoken.--Matt.

I did not mute the function keys but you can arrow through the 84 items and

Hi, Rebecca. I want to do exactly what you did. I'm a Window-Eyes user,
and use JAWS kicking and screaming. I don't like all the keys spoken, and
have not been able to silence them all. How do I do that in the fewest
possible keystrokes? Thanks in advance.--Matthew Chao

Muting the tab key also mutes the shift, control and alt keys.� I
also muted the return or enter key.� Window-Eyes users will
appreciate this configuration since these keys were all muted in
Window-Eyes.

When I switched to JAWS, I left JAWS as it was since I felt it would
give me confirmation in learning the different keyboard commands, but
now that I�ve turned them off, I appreciate the silence.� Smile.

I just pressed alt-f7 to spell-check this message, and JAWS spoke both
keys.� It does not say alt when the key is pressed alone, nor when
alt is pressed with the tab key.

I imagine that if I muted the function keys, then the spell-check
message would just read without any key confirmation.

Just FYI and something to play with.� Smile.

Thanks. I spoke with FS earlier today, and they had no workaround. So ...
Do you know if Rumola works with Ie?

I used Webvisum a couple weeks ago, but I don't think it works with anything above Firefox 52. 
I can never seem to get any relevant response from them on their website, so I suspect once that version of Firefox is gone, we're going to have to use something like Rumola or one of the other Captcha solutions, for those sites that don't provide an alternative; or whose alternative audio is so garbled as to be useless.
 
I suggested to Mr. Damery a few years ago that a captcha-reading capability within Jaws would be nice, but to no avail.
