Microsoft Edge usability

Van Lant, Robin
 

My company has just switched to having Microsoft Edge be our default browser.  IE 11 is still installed, but any link we click opens in Edge and we can no longer save favorite’s in IE.  I have read through the Edge user guide someone on the list shared for settings and keyboard commands in Edge, but still find the reading experience in Edge strange.  For example, today I opened our company directory in Edge and then in IE.  In Edge, pressing X for checkbox would not announce the checkbox nor the employee name next to it and, instead gave some odd info about a table and the column headers.  I could not get to the information I wanted.  When I went back to IE, the navigation with X worked just great to select the employee listing I wanted.  The information JAWS read was quite different.  I would have thought the experience would be the same, but that is not at all what I’m finding.  I have also tried Edge for accessing my department’s SharePoint site and again find the viewing and editing experiences quite different between Edge and IE. 

 

Is anyone using Edge as their preferred browser?  I’m wondering if I should make an accessibility case to our IT department to download Google Chrome or regain more access to IE as my default browser.

OCR software for scanner

Adrian Spratt
 

Hi. My new Windows 10 machine won’t work with the current OCR software I use with my Hovercam scanner. I’m looking for recommendations for highly accurate OCR software for use with documents that also works well with JAWS. Obviously, it must also be Windows 10-compatible.

Some of the first letter navigation keys in Edge don’t work as expected yet. There are a lot of kinks still being worked out. I’d probably make that case if I were you.

Re: OCR software for scanner

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

Admittedly I haven’t taken the plunge and bought it yet, but I’ve heard very good things about Abbyy FineReader. It may not be 100% accessible in all aspects but it is supposed to be mostly so. It’s a mainstream OCR package and seems to be considered one of the best by many users. I think its engine is even used by OpenBook or something (though I could be wrong about this). It costs a little over $200 US for home use as I recall.

Re: Microsoft Edge usability

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

It hasn’t worked with JAWS for that long. Maybe a year or less.

 

It’s a new framework, and Microsoft itself keeps tweaking it with Windows 10 updates. These things take time. I know some people are using it with either JAWS or NVDA and seem quite happy, but for most people, there are always browser alternatives. Sadly this isn’t always the case in a work environment.

Matthew, assuming you use Omni Page, which I used to have, would you e able to give me specific instructions on how to OCR with a scanner? I figured out how to perform OCR on online documents, but I had difficulty using it for printed pages. Thanks.

Yes, the full price for the OpenBook software is $1,000. Also, the sales guy I spoke to said it works only with the Pearl camera, so add $300, especially annoying since I already have a scanner.

Yes, the full price for the OpenBook software is $1,000. Also, the sales guy I spoke to said it works only with the Pearl camera, so add $300, especially annoying since I already have a scanner.

Hi there, I would suggest Open Book, it’s a product by VFO Group. They would have recently updated that software to operate without any issues in Windows 10.

Contact their sales department about that product.

Hi. My new Windows 10 machine won’t work with the current OCR software I use with my Hovercam scanner. I’m looking for recommendations for highly accurate OCR software for use with documents that also works well with JAWS. Obviously, it must also be Windows 10-compatible.

Re: New JAWS 2018 user Excel Question for keystrokes to read column headings and row titles

 

Hi Patti,

 

Thanks so much for these detailed instructions about row and column title reading. I guess things have gotten a lot more complicated from when I was first exposed to JAWS and Excel probably when I was still running Excel 2003 and using ZoomText with my remaining vision. I'm now running Excel 2010 which is what I believe you said you were running and I'm using ZoomText Fusion 2018 and trying to learn the JAWS keystrokes or what I'll call hotkeys. I admit that I probably am not following all your instructions below because having to do 8 or more steps to get column headings or row titles spoken seems a bit much. I'm thinking some of the steps below may only be settings that have to be done only once but I'm not positive of that. Back when I first downloaded a list of JAWS Excel keystrokes for Excel 2003 and the current version of JAWS at the time, you could press alt + 1 and JAWS would speak the current column first cell from the top. This worked great if the column headings were in row 1 as mine usually are.

 

I apologize for my ignorance but I'm new to JAWS and am trying to learn my way. I really want to get proficient with it especially with Excel 2010 so I'll get busy climbing the learning curve.

 

Thanks again for your help and if you have any further suggestions after my comments above, I'd welcome them. I'd even consider defining my own hotkey to do as the alt 1 keystroke mentioned above used to do if such a thing is possible.

Ok this is what I do.

I have windows10, jaws18, and MS 2010, but it might work on MS 2016.

Excel Row and Column Title Reading

 

1, be in the cell roll you want it to be read, like A1

2, Press insert V

3, press the letter T

4, arrow down to title reading

5, arrow down one time to, Define Name Column and Row Titles off

6, press the space bar until you hear current file

7, arrow down two times to title reading detection off

8, press the space bar

A, the first choice is read the column

B, read the row

C, read both

9, after you make your choice then press enter twice

Then it will go back to the work sheet

 

I hope this works for you.

Patti

 

Hi Patty,

 

I want to hear the column headings that are placed in row 1, columns A through whatever, regardless of where my cursor is located in the spreadsheet.

HiAlan,

Do you want to hear the title of a column as you go across the excel sheet, or go down?

Patti

 

Hi List,

 

I'm transitioning from an older version of ZoomText Magnifier/Reader to Fusion 2018 very soon. I'm trying to learn as much as I can about JAWS keyboard shortcuts, or hotkeys, or keystrokes or whatever you might call them. I just read through the 30-page JAWS 2018 keystrokes guide but could not find what I'm looking for. I know at one point in the past, JAWS had a keystroke that would read the Excel column heading of the text located in row 1 of that column regardless of where your cursor was located in the spreadsheet. By the same token, it also had a keystroke that would read the text located in column A that was the row title regardless of the column your cursor was located in. These keystrokes were very helpful since you could quickly understand your position based on row title and column heading name with a quick keystroke.

 

Can someone confirm that I'm not imagining that these keyboard shortcuts used to exist in JAWS? Can anyone tell me how I might resurrect them or accomplish what I'm wanting to do by customizing some keystroke sugstitute?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have OpenBook 9 on a Windows 7 machine and have been using a flatbed scanner for years.

It hasn’t worked with JAWS for that long. Maybe a year or less.

 

It’s a new framework, and Microsoft itself keeps tweaking it with Windows 10 updates. These things take time. I know some people are using it with either JAWS or NVDA and seem quite happy, but for most people, there are always browser alternatives. Sadly this isn’t always the case in a work environment.

Some of the first letter navigation keys in Edge don’t work as expected yet. There are a lot of kinks still being worked out. I’d probably make that case if I were you.

My company has just switched to having Microsoft Edge be our default browser.  IE 11 is still installed, but any link we click opens in Edge and we can no longer save favorite’s in IE.  I have read through the Edge user guide someone on the list shared for settings and keyboard commands in Edge, but still find the reading experience in Edge strange.  For example, today I opened our company directory in Edge and then in IE.  In Edge, pressing X for checkbox would not announce the checkbox nor the employee name next to it and, instead gave some odd info about a table and the column headers.  I could not get to the information I wanted.  When I went back to IE, the navigation with X worked just great to select the employee listing I wanted.  The information JAWS read was quite different.  I would have thought the experience would be the same, but that is not at all what I’m finding.  I have also tried Edge for accessing my department’s SharePoint site and again find the viewing and editing experiences quite different between Edge and IE. 

 

Is anyone using Edge as their preferred browser?  I’m wondering if I should make an accessibility case to our IT department to download Google Chrome or regain more access to IE as my default browser.
