Using the latest Win 10 version 1809 and Jaws 2019, when arrowing by character or using the insert plus arrows to move word by word in WLM Jaws is very sluggish to respond. It does not seem to affect Word so I am just wondering if anyone else is seeing this behavior. I guess it might be the editor used in WLM. It is the same with Jaws 2018 and with either a vocalizer voice or Eloquence.

Re: Getting Adobe Acrobat to Work

If you want to set adobe to open all pdf files go to default apps, tab
across until you find 'choose default apps by file type', in here you can
set the app you want to open according to the file type. It's a long list
but if you tab through the file types until you find '.PDF' you can then set
adobe as your default program for all pdfs.

Good morning,

You will need to change how Windows opens up PDF files. This is the way to
do that.

1 - Bring focus to any PDF file and hit your application key or shift F10
2 - Arrow up to properties and hit enter.
3 - Shift tab once to change and hit enter
4 - Tab once to the list of applications and change it to acrobat and then
tab to Ok and then tab to ok and then you are done.

I posted this several weeks ago.

Adobe did something that Broke JAWS, as Vispero tech support said, but it’s easily fixed.

Open Adobe, either from the icon on your desktop, or from the start menu.

Press control-k.

Press s till you hear

Security enhanced.

There is a checkbox that says,

Enable protected mode at startup.  It’s checked.  Press the spacebar to uncheck it.

If you get a warning message, that’s okay.  You need to change this to make it work.

Tab to OK.

Tab to OK again.

Now it works as it should.

Hi All,

I am using JAWS 2018, windows 10 and the free version of adobe reader.

After downing a document, JAWS will say the percentage of the down load and then it just say blank, it won’t read the document.

I know that there is text because my nephew was helping me and he could read everything that was on  the page.

We tried using I E and googol chrome and we got the same results.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Subject: [jaws-users] Getting Adobe Acrobat to Work


Using JAWS 2019 with Windows 10, I cannot get Adobe Acrobat to work
with IE.?? When I access a PDF document in IE, I get a page with an
open parent document button, but when I click on it, nothing
happens.?? On the Preferences mdialog, the enable protected mode check
box is unchecked.??
What other settings do I need to change to get Acrobat to work with IE???
Thanks.

So what is the steps to do this?

Thanks Patti

 

Sounds like you need to go to the view settings for that list and define the view so that the recipient is listed.

Hey Gang,

How can I change that to their name?

Thanks Patti

Hi Ron,
 
First of all for a point of reference, I do not runn WLM but, I do run Outlook Express and in, Tools / Options / Signatures is where I find the setting that controls this type of behavior.  The settings are below, and I'm only posting this because it might be close with WLM.
 
checked Add signatures to all outgoing messages check box
not checked Don’t add signatures to Replies and Forwards check box
 
Hope this gives you a push in the right direction.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

If I write a letter from me my tag line automatically goes out with the letter like it should.
But if I fw or ctrl r a letter, I have to type it out by hand.
I’d deeply appreciate some thoughts on why if I write a letter to anyone the tag line goes out, but if I fw or ctrl r to sender I need to write it out by hand?
Many thanks.

Using the latest Win 10 version 1809 and Jaws 2019, when arrowing by character or using the insert plus arrows to move word by word in WLM Jaws is very sluggish to respond. It does not seem to affect Word so I am just wondering if anyone else is seeing this behavior. I guess it might be the editor used in WLM. It is the same with Jaws 2018 and with either a vocalizer voice or Eloquence.

Hi,
I can’t reproduce this sluggishness here at all. Is it also present when windows live window is maximized?

Hi Ron,
That should be in settings under the send tab.
Also, I think this other thing has been mentioned here in reference to Outlook, and I noticed in WLM as well, and that is having to turn off virtual keys when replying to a message.
Is there a fix to this?
Latest Jaws and Windows 7 and this is in WLM.

ZFP from KOXK

Miriam Vieni
 

A few years ago when our favorite weather website wasn't working, someone
gave me the link for this one and it's in my favorites with a placemark for
northern Suffolk County. So I can get the weather forecast for several days.
However, I don't know how to find the current conditions for my area, the
ZFP from KOKX: That's what internet explorer says when I get there from My
Favorites.temperature, current weather conditions, etc. Can someone tell me
how to do this in explicit steps?

Re: is there any way to control the volume of the you tube video player?

JM Casey
 

Hey jim.

 

Yes, of course there’s a  volume control. You should be able to see it by finding the control in the little frame where the player controls are located. It’s a slider. If you turn the virtual cursor off with insert-z, you should be able to manipulate it using your up and down arrow keys.

Hi all,

I am running windows ten and jaws 2019.

I notice that sometimes the volume on the you tube video player can be quite loud. I want to lower the volume on that player without lowering the volume level on my computer. Is this ;possible? If so how do I do it.

Thanks for your help in advance. Jim

Re: Setting Home Page In Firefox 67

Hi.

 

Not counterintuitive – are you sure Adobe Reader itself isn’t opening? Of course I can’t be sure but I don’t think iE is reading your pdf files at all.

As I mentioned previously, I followed another list member's instructions, and was able to get PDF documents to read in IE using Adobe Acrobat.?? On the IE Tools menu, I selected Manage Add-ons -Tool Bars & Extensions.?? I scrolled to?? all Add-ons?? in the combo box and hit space to display allAdd-ons?? and scrolled to Adobe PDF Reader. Using the context menu, I selected disable?? to disable this add-on which was enabled by default.?? I know this sounds counterintuitive, but apparently, the Adobe PDF add-on must be disabled in order for IE to read PDF documents.??

Well, now that I solved the problem of getting Adobe Acrobat to work
with IE, I discovered that my new Windows 10 computer from Computers for
the Blind came with Firefox 67 already installed.?? I want to make
Google.com my home page, but I cannot find any option on the
Tools-Options menu to accomplish this.?? Previous versions of Firefox had
an option on the General tab of the options menu to set the home page,
but Firefox 67 seems to have a completely different interface and I
cannot find any way to set the home page.?? Any help would be
appreciated.?? Thanks.

Re: Reading a PDF with adobe

I posted this several weeks ago.

Adobe did something that Broke JAWS, as Vispero tech support said, but it’s easily fixed.

Open Adobe, either from the icon on your desktop, or from the start menu.

Press control-k.

Press s till you hear

Security enhanced.

There is a checkbox that says,

Enable protected mode at startup.  It’s checked.  Press the spacebar to uncheck it.

If you get a warning message, that’s okay.  You need to change this to make it work.

Tab to OK.

Tab to OK again.

Now it works as it should.

Hi All,

I am using JAWS 2018, windows 10 and the free version of adobe reader.

After downing a document, JAWS will say the percentage of the down load and then it just say blank, it won’t read the document.

I know that there is text because my nephew was helping me and he could read everything that was on  the page.

We tried using I E and googol chrome and we got the same results.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Thanks in advance and have a nice weekend.
