Then how come members of other lists have reported just the opposite?  They claim that they signed up with Captcha Be Gone for $36 a year only to discover that it does not work, and that its developer does not respond to email inquiries.  How come it works for you but not for anyone else? And how do you contact the developer if you decide to take a chance and sign up but can't get it to work and you want a refund?

Subject: [jaws-users] Virtual View In Outlook Appointment Calendar

 

I’ve played around with both the day and month views in the Outlook Calendar.

I personally think that the month view is more convenient because navigation, to me, is more intuitive.  Left and right arrows move between days

and up and down arrows move between weeks.  Alt-pageup and alt-pagedown keys move between months.

Tab moves to appointments for the current day.

But what is really neat for the month view is that by pressing insert-a, twice, all information for that month is placed in the virtual viewer and you can arrow through it with only the days listed that have events or appointments showing.

For example, here is the month of March in my calendar with names removed:

I have birthdays set as appointments so the reminders will pop up at times that make sense to me.  Smile.

Data for Friday, March 01, 2019-Sunday, March 31, 2019:

 

All Day Events:

 

No Events

 

Appointment:

 

Friday, March 01, 2019 4:00pm-4:00pm: Give Heartgard pill reminder.

Recurring,

Sunday, March 10, 2019 8:00am-8:00am: Birthday reminder.

Recurring,

Friday, March 15, 2019 4:00pm-4:00pm: Give Nexgard pill reminder.

Recurring,

Monday, March 18, 2019 8:00am-8:00am: Birthday reminder.

Recurring,

Monday, March 18, 2019 8:00am-8:00am: Birthday reminder for another friend.

Recurring,

This is just a quick way of getting a summary of the month’s schedule.

yes but web visum hasn't worked in a very long time.  there was that one fix that made it work for awhile and then nothing.  most folks, including myself feel it is dead and buried.  too bad too because it worked very well and i never had any problems with it.

Re: Question about contact card attachments in Outlook

I don’t recall if I’ve done this before, but what I would try is to copy the attachment, then use Control 3 to go to Contacts.  Once there, just hist Control V to paste.

Hello,

I’m running JAWS 2019 with Outlook 2016 in Windows 10.  I have my calendar view set to show one day at a time.  I have been noticing an odd behavior and want to know if others are seeing this.  When I open my calendar with control 2, I like to tab through my events for the day.  I thought that if I kept tabbing, it would go to the first event on the next day.  However, it seems to be skipping to the last scheduled event on the next day.  If I then shit tab, it will read the earlier events  on that day.  If I switch to work week view, tabbing forward works as I would expect.  Since I have some remaining vision, I have preferred the one day view, but I may need to change.  What view do others use and do you see the same behavior in the one day view?

This is fine if you own an IPhone or other  smart phone.  But what about the rest of us for whom smart phones are either too expensive or else difficult to impossible to master because of their touchscreens?  Now that there are no longer any captcha solving programs out there that work consistently, if at all, maybe it's finally time for the software development team at Vispero to give this issue some very serious thought so that perhaps a captcha-solving feature can be added to JAWS.

I think that is one great suggestion.  I know that some users would say it isn't for Sparrow to do this but I feel differently. Because Jaws is all about accessibility for the blind, the wonderful capcha is also accessibility.  rather should i say "solving" capchas is an accessibility issue too.

Re: read captcha

First, good luck getting Mr. Damry to include that as a feature. I
spoke with him personally about that a couple years ago; he said that
wasn't something they were considering to implement as part of Jaws.
I hope they will change their mind, but I'm not holding out hope.

Webvisum is probably dead although I keep an old version of Firefox
around just for that purpose, and it solved a captcha for me back
around Thanksgiving.

There are few options other than CaptchaBeGone, I think Rumola bit the
dust over a year ago. AIRA would work because that solution is nearly
instantaneous, but the prescription cost is likely out of most folks'
league.

Re: read captcha

Douglas C. DeCamp
 

The entire purpose for a Capcha is to ensure that a computer cannot solve the item. If software can solve the Capcha it is ineffective or broken and must be improved. Therefore, by definition, JAWS nor any other software will ever be able to solve a proper Capcha.

We've gone through this before, and I think someone on here gave me a
program to read captchas, but I can't find the e-mail. I've got an
image I need read to me. Just fire off your best methods, and I'll
pay a little money if I have too.

Webvisum is probably dead although I keep an old version of Firefox
around just for that purpose, and it solved a captcha for me back
around Thanksgiving.

There are few options other than CaptchaBeGone, I think Rumola bit the
dust over a year ago. AIRA would work because that solution is nearly
instantaneous, but the prescription cost is likely out of most folks'

The entire purpose for a Capcha is to ensure that a computer cannot solve the item. If software can solve the Capcha it is ineffective or broken and must be improved. Therefore, by definition, JAWS nor any other software will ever be able to solve a proper Capcha.

Re: I am not a robot Check box on web page

Victor, I’m currently using water fox for my default internet browser instead of IE 11 since the tech support for IE 11 will be dropped in 2020.
The web page to go down load water fox is at:
I’m also using WLM for my mail program.
Would it be possible to use the captcha program for those parameters?
Also, is it free since I’m on a limited once a month check?
Very Thankfully Yours:

Hi Justin,

 

You can find out  about RECAPTCHA at the following link:

 

 

It will give you instructions on what it is, how to add sites to it for your own personal store and how you can bypass the process with the various versions.

 

You do have to sign in, so please do so before you proceed with any of the options.

Hi John,

 

If you have a Google account, sign into your Google account on all the browsers you use.

 

Once signed in, there is a Google application that by-passes the I am not a robot checkbox and fills it in for you.

 

You do have to add the sight into allowed sights Google should include, but once you have it set up, you should get by those types of robot detection tools quite quickly.

 

A faster way to get to the Google application is to hit the link found at the bottom of the page once you check the box that you are not a robot.

 

If it gives you that error and does not allow you to fill in the answer, or you are not able to select the audio CAPTCHA, there will be a link for more information as to why you’re getting the error.

 

It has to do with not having an updated something or other.

 

Regardless of the explanation, once you register the site, things will go smoothly from then on.

 

Victor

                List, I am trying to write my Congressman and one of the hurdles to write via E mail is to deal with a check box that “I am not a robot”

So I can fill out the form for an E-mail.

I have tried doing as jaws says, “use the space box to check or uncheck” but nothing happens.

I have also routed jaws to PC cursor which is on the checkbox and did the equivalent of a mouse click.

Any thoughts?

Re: read captcha

Gerald Levy
 

I agree.  I know Eric would probably dismiss these ideas out of hand.  But now that Webvisum is totally defunct, why couldn't the Vispero software team get their hands on it and figure out the proprietary algorithm that made it work and include it in JAWS?  I don't think Webvisum was ever copyrighted or patented, so there would be no infringement.  Or perhaps a captcha-solving solution similar to that used by Rumola and Captcha Be Gone could be incorporated into JAWS, whereby you submitted a screen shot of the captcha image to a sighted operator who could solve it and return the result on the clipboard?  Vispero could enlist its own in-house staff, or else find willing sighted volumteers, perhaps at some non-profit charitable agency. These are by no means perfect solutions, but I think they are worth considering.
