Hi,

How do I uninstall scripts?

I installed skype and its scripts from http://dlee.org/skype/electron/skypeelectron.htm but when looking in the CTRL panel, I didn’t find it.

I encountered this same problem several months ago, immediately after DC
installed an update. I tried removing and reinstalling DC, but that did not
fix the problem. I finally removed DC and reinstalled version XI. I
installed all of the available updates and have been using it to access PDF
files with no further problems. I know that some will jump up and down and

Hello Jorge;

you're absolutely right, unfortunately, finding this button to enable is very difficult.

I solve my issue doing the following;

 

 

If anyone is interested in using the Microsoft online tech support;

I have shortened the URL:

go to:

 

https://tinyurl.com/yc3ptybg

 

on this page, you'll need to provide your Microsoft username,

most likely you're email, or phone number,

go to next,

now you need to provide your password,

go next,

 

now you're being connected to a representative.

Note, I was at first a little reluctant, but I decided to surge on.

once you are connected,

you have a little text chat with the tech, outlining your problem.

note, jaws works well with the texting.

most likely, the tech will ask if you want a remote access session,

if you say yes,

a link, and a code are provided.

before you enter on the link, you need to copy the code to clipboard.

the link is something like,

www.123rescue.com

 

once you enter on the link,

the next task is to find the I agree button to the license agreement.

 

when this is done, you then need to put your code in, this will then allow you to install some temporary remote software.

your now finally able to be remotely accessed by the tech.

 

hope this helps someone.

problem filling out passwords in Jaws with google chrome

Davy Cuppens
 

HI Jaws user list.
 
Since a month now I’ve been working as a newbe with jaws2019 at the reception of our town hall.
 
We use a document management system called mycorsa which is not a car (grin). It is a web application that has to be accessed from Google Chrome.
 
I have to check my mails and allow them to the particular services working for the town council. To grant those mails I have to register them in that mycorsa dms system, therefore I go to the menu item “save in Mycorsa” which is implemented in my office2016 Outlook. Then google chrome opens itselves and asks for my username and password. But since this morning this is nolonger possible. Sighted collegues say everything is normal on the screen and now I found out that I had to minimize Mycorsa going back to my folder view on desktop and shift tabbing back.
After doing so, chrome and the mycorsa app acts just normal again prompting me for my user data.
 
Nothing has been altered. Has there maybe been any updates for chrome or the win10 ios making differences in accessibility?
 
I have checked my outlook and mycorsa are always maximised in the screen.
Any other ideas?
Regards
Davy

Why not just suggest that your friend call tech support.  It’s their job to help with issues, and they know the program better than any of us do.  Smile.

There is a JAWS command for reading the entire row in a table, but JAWS says “items view, list box”, in File Explorer.  Having the information all there in front of you makes sense visually, but I should think that having all that read to you as you arrowed down the items in a list would be tedious if not overwhelming.  Hence the decision to treat the information as a list, not a table, with the option to right arrow to the information you might occasionally want.

But perhaps the tech wizards have a different answer for those like your friend who want it all as they arrow down, so call and put the wizards to work.  Smile.

There is a sort of work around.  No, JAWS won’t read across the categories as you arrow down the list of files or folders. But if you’re just interested in hearing any one of the categories--the date, the type or the size—arrow over to the category you want, and then when you arrow down, JAWS will read the name and information in the category you chose with the right arrow key.  Obviously, the left arrow will select too if you change your mind

and want date instead of size for example.  This also works if you’ve searched for files—all your files with JAWS hints for example.  Here you can get the path information as well as the information normally available in File Explorer. 

If you press enter on anything, you have to reset your left/right arrows to where you had them.

I often place mine on date.  This makes it really easy to select the folders and sometimes just files I need to back up since the last time I did it.  I prefer to back up data this way rather than using a program.  JMO.  Smile.

Re: Balancing audio for jaws and youtube

Mike O'Brien
 

Hi

You could turn off JAWS audio ducking to get more balance between JAWS and
other applications. However turning audio ducking on or off can only be
done for all applications . To turn off audio ducking, go to the JAWS
settings center by pressing JAWSkey+6 on the numbers row. Then press
control+shift+d to open the default settings. Then type audio in the search
box which will bring up the setting for audio ducking. Then press space to
turn the setting on or off and tab to the OK button and press enter. Or
another way to turn audio ducking on or off is to press and then release
Jawskey+space and then press d.

I think you are stuck with doing it this way. I have just tried both in Documents and Windows Explorer and going to view and entering on details doesn’t change anything – you still have to arrow across to find the information you want.

Yes I have used the method you describe in many instances but he wants to see them all and says he used to be able to do that with a Jaws setting.

There is a sort of work around.  No, JAWS won’t read across the categories as you arrow down the list of files or folders. But if you’re just interested in hearing any one of the categories--the date, the type or the size—arrow over to the category you want, and then when you arrow down, JAWS will read the name and information in the category you chose with the right arrow key.  Obviously, the left arrow will select too if you change your mind

and want date instead of size for example.  This also works if you’ve searched for files—all your files with JAWS hints for example.  Here you can get the path information as well as the information normally available in File Explorer. 

If you press enter on anything, you have to reset your left/right arrows to where you had them.

I often place mine on date.  This makes it really easy to select the folders and sometimes just files I need to back up since the last time I did it.  I prefer to back up data this way rather than using a program.  JMO.  Smile.
