Re: Chrome, extension bar

Adrian Spratt
 

Rebecca, I figured it out, but with a different method. For the record, I can’t find “More tools.”

Here’s what I did:

With Chrome open, press F6 to land on the address bar.

Tab until the extension/add-on I want comes up.

Arrow down through the choices and press enter on my selection.

Later, when moving around with alt-enter, I came across a related page where my selection was detailed.

 

Can you explain how to get to “More tools”?

Adrian, I don’t know if this is what you want, but extensions is listed in the

More tools

Category.

Just press alt and arrow up or down.  Press enter or right arrow on more tools, then arrow down to extensions and press enter.

I’ve not done anything with this, so perhaps others will advise.  Smile.

Re: Backing Up External Hard Drive

JERRY MARTIN
 

Thanks. I know that in some instances, there is an option for backing up data; but I am not certain as to whether this relates only to the hard drive in the device/laptop itself. Thanks again.

Since it’s an external drive, all I’d do is open the drive in file explorer, open the location you want to copy to in another window, go to the external, hit ctrl-a, and then ctrl-c in the other window.

 

This will copy everything. If you’re looking for an automatic/synchronised/scheduled regular backup though, you’d be best finding another method.

Re: Teamviewer and jaws

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

You probably won’t have to do much with the Team Viewer window other than log in. It’s a very simple programme. I don’t really remember details about it but we used to use it at my old work. Mostly I was on the client end, but I think it’d be equally possible to control someone’s system using a screen-reader. One thing though is don’t count on being able to tell what the person on the other end, who will presumably be sighted, is doing with your system, since it’ll probably be moving quite fast. It helps a little (or it did in my case at least) having a braille display if you want to see what is going on.

A

“compatibility test” sounds quick and not complex though.

 

Just be careful – this person will have control of your system.

Re: Teamviewer and jaws

Annette Carr
 

Hi Matthew,

 

Thus far, I have not run into any type of issues with TeamViewer.  I am able to do my part to let the other person into my computer.  Just be aware that the other user will hear JAWS on their computer as well.  If this is a problem for them, you will need to Alt+F4 to shutdown JAWS.

 

If there are any other features in TeamViewer such as conferencing or a chat feature, I have no idea about them.

 

HTH,

Annette

I think that might be some

myself. Right now I am
grasping for straws but my
headset is working and by
pressing Win key plus letter
:C: I was able to bring up
Cortana. My suggestion to you
is to just jump in and
experiment as I am doing.
Maybe someone with some
experience will jump in and
give us a little help to get
started. Good luck and maybe
we will be able to help each
other a little. Having some

If you will go to file, then to options, then to advanced you can tab to, navigation start or something like that.

List Guidelines Reminder

Rick Justice <ricjustice@...>
 

About JAWS-Users-List
English (USA)
Hello and welcome to the JAWS Users list. This list has been created for The
purpose of discussing all aspects of the JAWS for Windows screen reader
Program.

So everything that pertains to JAWS is fair game. Such as asking about what
software packages work well with JAWS or how to make them work even better

with scripts, keyboard short cuts and so forth. Another example could be
requesting information on how to do something in Microsoft Word, which as we
all

know works very well with JAWS, but you need to know how to do a certain
task or want to learn a way to accomplish it more efficiently.
Now this is a very important point in my opinion, asking the list for exact
instructions every time is not a good thing to do for a major reason. It
creates

a dependency situation even if you don't realize it does. The ideal place I
am hoping the list will arrive at some day is that everybody no matter how

new they might happen to be with JAWS or computers will have the confidence
to try things on their own, and yet feel if they get stuck the list will be

there to help put them back on track. Trust me when I say that help is
quicker to arrive for somebody who is well known to ask for it last than
first.

So try it yourself first whatever it is. If you get stuck then let the list
know what you've done to try and resolve your current dilemma. Then I'm sure

help will arrive with in short order. Next a post asking if there is a
software package that does a specific task and works well with JAWS is
perfectly

fine.
The rules of conduct are quite simple and straightforward. Be polite and
Patient with others. There will be absolutely no fighting, and no bashing of
Freedom

Scientific on here at all. If you have a problem with them then take it up
with Freedom Scientific directly.
Please try to keep subject lines relevant and descriptive as possible.
Signatures and tag lines should not be more than a couple of sentences,
three or four at the most. If you wish to include a tag line, don't make
another

message of it. Placing anything else in there simply increases the bandwidth
required to handle the posted message and make it more work for a person who

wishes to follow the given thread back to review previous messages, as they
have to plow down past an overly long signature. Also please place your
message

above your signature line so as not to force people to read it before they
get to your message.
Also any newsletters except those that directly pertain to JAWS should not
be posted to the list prior to receiving moderator approval.
Attachments are removed before any message is sent to the list. This is done
for your protection.
When contacting any of the list moderators privately please be descriptive
in the subject line as to the purpose of the message.
Also, if you have a question for the list that falls within the guidelines,
then post it accordingly. Don't contact the management team with questions

that are more appropriate for the list itself. Your question may or may not
receive an answer for a number of reasons.
Everybody should familiarize themselves with the content contained in the
footer message that accompanies every message posted to the list.
Occasionally there might be some difficulty with your email address and you
may receive an email from the server asking you to reactivate your account.

Please do not simply delete this message. Instead open it and follow the
directions to reactivate your account. If you do not after receiving a
number

of such messages then the server will remove your email address
automatically.
The discussion of anything illegal is absolutely forbidden, along with
flirting or other such inappropriate activities. This is not a high tech
swap shop

or anything of that nature at all. This means that goods and or services
will not be bought or sold using this forum. If you know a given subject is
off

topic then don't post it. Simply placing off topic in the subject line does
not make it all right.
Posting to a single address IE this list is the preferred acceptable
practice as we do not allow cross posting. That is simply posting to more
than one

list or address in the same message. You can post the same message to
multiple list, but not at the same time.
Now to the matter of replying to a posted message:
The proper practice is to simply hit the reply command in your respective
email client, IE control + R is used quite often in many programs.
The SUBJECT: field should be short and to the point without including any
member names.
Please do not reply to a posted question simply to say you don't know the
answer. All that does is create more traffic on an already very busy list
for

no reason at all.
Lastly please no jokes, virus warnings, recipes, safety tips, or pleas to
help dying kids, should ever be forwarded to the list.
Forwarded messages and attachments are not permitted. If you have an article
or message of interest which relates to the
Nature of this list send it to the list owner and if it is appropriate, it
will be posted to the list. Additionally if you want to make an announcement

about another list send it to the list owner for consideration. Do not post
it to the list before obtaining approval.
No auto responders are to be used on this list! Those who use auto
responders for vacations and so forth must make sure that this list is not
included. Any person who sends an auto response message will be removed!
My hope is that this list will always be a place where everybody no matter
what their particular skill level can feel safe to ask any question at all
within

the guidelines that I have set forth. It is my experience that such rules of
conduct are important to keep good people on the list.
