Re: A Question about chrome settings

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi Rebecca,
 
See if this tutorial helps any:
I will paste, in this email, my new text tutorial I did on Using the Chrome Browser.
It is totally updated.
I tell you each key command I press, and what JAWS says.
You can read this tutorial, and repeat what I do on your computer.
I take you through all of the settings of Chrome, and tell you how to customize it to your liking.

This tutorial will be done with the latest update of Chrome.

I will also use JAWS 18, JAWS 2018, and NVDA 2018.1 for this tutorial, because they all work the same in Chrome.

Finally, I will use Windows 10 Spring 2018 update, 1803. latest public build.

I will assume that you have downloaded and installed Chrome.

There should be a shortcut on your desktop.

 

Section One:

Launching Chrome:

One way to Launch Chrome, is to press the Windows key or CTRL+Escape and type Chrome in the search edit field, and press enter when you hear JAWS say Chrome.

However, since you have already downloaded Chrome, You will have a shortcut icon on your desktop.

So next, find the shortcut for Chrome on your desktop, and press enter to open Chrome.

The short cut will actually say Google Chrome, so press G to find the Google Chrome icon on your desktop.

The first very important step, is to press Windows+up arrow to maximise the window. Chrome often opens with the window not maximize, and you will get undesirable results.

 

Section Two:

Bringing up a web site.

Press CTRL+L or Alt+D

and type the following:

www.freedomscientific.com

The Freedom Scientific web site comes up very quickly.

All navigation commands like: H for heading, E for edit field, C for combo box, and so on all work just the same in Chrome.

 

Section Three:

The Virticle Chrome menu:

I will press Alt+F.

The Chrome menu is open.

This is a very large virticle menu that you just keep pressing up and down arrow through.

I will press insert+up arrow to hear the first option in this menu.

New Tab, CTRL+T.

You can press that command right from the web site you are on.

New Window, CTRL+N

You can press these commands right from your web page, instead of coming here.

New incognito Window.

History sub menu.

I will press right arrow here to see what is in this sub menu!

History, CTRL+H

So, there is a key command for reading your history.

You can read a few sites you were on right here.

I will press left arrow to close this history sub menu.

Downloads, CTRL+J

There is the command for opening your downloads you have downloaded with Chrome.

Next, the important Bookmarks sub menu.

I will press right arrow, to open this.

I hear, bookmark this page, CTRL+D

That command will bookmark the page you are reading.

Next down arrow, says show bookmarks bar, CTRL+Shift+B

That command, will show your bookmarks on your Chrome browser for all to see. I do not want that.

Here is the important one.

manage bookmarks

The command is, CTRL+Shift+O

In here, you can organize your bookmarks into folders, see the bookmarks you have imported from different browsers, and very importantly, you can download, to your computer, an HTML file of all of your bookmarks in Chrome.

On your computer, you can press enter on this file, after it downloads, and a page will show up in Chrome with a list of all bookmarks you have saved in Chrome. This is an awesome way to download all of your bookmarks right to your computer, so you can back them up.

That is all for manage bookmarks.

Next, I hear import bookmarks and settings.

press enter on this, and you can import all bookmarks and settings from IE, and Firefox, right into Google Chrome, and they will be in their corresponding folders.

Now, I hear all of my saved bookmarks as I continue to arrow down.

Very important!

Sometimes, when I open that bookmarks sub menu, I do not land on the choices I mension here, but instead, I start hearing my saved bookmarks. If this happens, I press up arrow a few times, and it gets me to these choices.

Keep in mind, that many of these choices, like bookmark manager, have key commands, so you do not have to come to this bookmarks sub menu at all. You only need to come here most of the time, to arrow through your saved bookmarks, and enter on the desired one.

To save a web site as a bookmark,

Just press CTRL+D and press enter, and your bookmark is saved.

I will now press left arrow, to close the Bookmarks sub menu!

I will continue to down arrow through this virticle Chrome menu that we entered by just pressing alt.

The next few are very self explanatory.

The next one I will mension, is the more tools submenu.

I will press right arrow on this.

I hear Save Page as, and the command, CTRL+S.

Next, Save to desktop.

This allows you to save the favorite of the page right to your desktop. This is how you do this in Chrome, instead of doing this in the file menu in IE.

It is hidden under this more tools submenu.

Clear Browsing data, and there is the key command, CTRL+Shift+Delete key.

Extentions, In here, you can add extentions, delete extentions and so on.

These are the same as add ons, in IE.

I will press left arrow, to close the More Tools sub menu, and we are back to the virticle Chrome menu.

The last two that I will mention, are settings, and the help sub menu.

If you press the left arrow on the help sub menu, you can open the help system, just like in other programs, so that is all I will say about help.

Now, we will press enter on settings, and a web like page will open where the virtual cursor will turn on with JAWS, and NVDA will be in Brows mode.

 

Section Four:

Adjusting Settings and Advanced settings:

Now that this web page is open, I will just down arrow down the page and we will deal with each setting.

Important:

I have already signed into Chrome.

So now, arrow down until you hear sign into Chrome and press enter.

You just enter your email address and password, I think it has to be the same email address and password that you used to set up your Google account.

I am not sure about this.

You do not need to sign into Chrome, if you do, you can sync all of your activity between all devices that you have Chrome on. That is the only advantage of signing in.

I will continue with what I hear after you have signed in.

If you do not sign in, press H until you hear Appearance.

Each group of settings is a heading that you can get to by pressing H. This makes it very easy, because you just press H until you hear the group of settings you want to work with.

Now, because I have signed in, this is what I hear before getting to appearance.

The first thing you hear:

Settings.

That is the very top of the web page.

Down arrow, and you hear:

Main Menu Button.

That will just take you back to the virticle menu we were in.

If you down arrow again, you will just hear blank.

Down arrow, again, and you hear:

Settings again, but now, this is a heading. You can get here just by pressing H at the top of the page.

If you down arrow, you hear:

Search Settings.

This is where you can type in a setting that you want to change.

Down arrow again, and there is the edit field where you type in the setting you want to work with.

Down arrow again, and you hear another heading saying people.

Down arrow again, and I hear David Clickable.

This is because I have already signed into Chrome.

Down arrow again, and I hear my Gmail email address.

Again, this is because I have already signed into Chrome to sync my settings and all of that.

Down arrow again, and I hear:

Edit person.

This is where I could change my name.

Down arrow again, and I hear:

Sign Out.

This is because I have already signed in to Chrome.

Down arrow again, and I hear:

Sync.

Down arrow again, and I hear:

On, Sync everything.

This is a combo box, where you can choose what to sinc; I chose everything in this combo box.

Again, all of this is because I have signed into Chrome already.

Down arrow again, and you hear:

Sync button.

Down arrow again, and you hear:

Manage other people clickable.

Don't worry about the clickables. There is a clickable for many things, but then there is the button you enter on right after that.

Down arrow again, and you hear:

Manage other people button.

This is what you would press enter on to set up another user.

Down arrow again, and you hear:

Import bookmarks and settings Clickable:

Down arrow again, and you actually hear

Import bookmarks and settings button.

Here, you press enter and import all of your bookmarks and settings from other Browsers like IE.

This is another way of doing this, because remember,

We had a choice of manage bookmarks in the book marks sub menu in the virticle menu.

There is more than one place to do things in Chrome.

Now, we have a series of headings, that you can just press H for heading, to get to.

Now, we have gotten to the appearance heading. Down arrow and you hear:

themes, which I did nothing with.

Next, you can open the Chrome web store. You can get hundreds of extensions, and more.

Then, you hear Themes button.

Do nothing with this.

Next, you hear:

Show home clickable.

Just skip that.

There are many buttons that say clickable, and then there is a button that you actually press enter on to work with it.

Just work with the buttons, and skip over these clickables.

Down arrow, and you have an edit box where you can put in your home page you want to get to by pressing Alt+Home.

Next, there is the home button toggle.

Press the spacebar to turn this on or off. If it is on, you can have the home button show at the top of the Chrome Window.

I have it checked.

Next, you get to the button where you can show the bookmarks toolbar at the top of every web site.

You might want to check this, because it might be easier to see all of your bookmarks.

Next, you have the font size choice where you can choose how large the fonts are in Chrome. There is a combo box that is set to medium by default.

Next, you have the Customize Fonts button.

Next, you have page zoom. There is a combo box set to 100 percent by default.

Now, we are at another heading, where you can set your search Engine.

There is a combo box below, and I set it to Google because I like to have my searches open with the Google search engine on the address bar instead of Bing.

Next heading:

Default Browser.

Here, you can choose weather you want Chrome to be your default browser or not.

Just leave this alone if you do not want Chrome to be your default browser.

Next Important heading:

On Start up.

There are a few choices here of what you want to open when you start up Google Chrome.

There are radio buttons.

The first radio button you could check is to have Chrome open in a new blank tab.

The next radio button, is to have Chrome open right where you left off the last time you closed out of Chrome. This could be handy!

The third radio button you can check:

Open a specific page or a set of pages.

Under this, you can type in the URL's of the web sites that you want to open when you start Chrome.

Next, you can add a new page to your start up pages.

Next important group of settings, the advanced settings.

Now, you have to press enter on the advanced settings button before more headings of settings will show.

The Advanced settings are collapsed, so you have to press enter to show more headings of settings.

Now that these advanced settings are open, we get to the next heading of settings.

There is much more we can customize under the advanced settings.

Privacy and security heading:

Down arrow from here, and you hear:

Google Chrome may use web services to improve your browsing experience. You may optionally disable these services. Next, there is a link that says learn more.

Next, you hear:

use a web service to resolve navigation errors.

Press spacebar to toggle this on or off.

Now you have:

Use a prediction service to enable you in searches.

I left this unchecked.

Next, you have a setting to speed up the loading of web pages:

I checked this with spacebar.

The next three settings I just left alone.

I checked the one that says:

Use a web service to help with spelling.

I leave manage certificates alone.

Next, you have content settings, but this is not a new heading.

We are still working with the same heading.

The only thing of interest here, is the clear history button.

This was available in the virtical menu, so don't worry about this.

Now, we get to the next heading of settings.

Passwords and forms:

Under this heading, just make sure that you check to be able to have Chrome save passwords.

Languages Heading:

I did nothing with this.

Downloads heading:

This is where you choose where you want your downloads to be saved on your computer.

Printing heading:

I did nothing with this.

Accessibility heading:

I did nothing with this.

Now, we have the System heading:

Down arrow, and you hear:

Continue running background apps, when Google Chrome is Closed.

I have this unchecked.

Next,

Use hard ware excelloration when Available.

I have this checked.

Next, you hear:

Open proxy settings button.

I left this alone.

Last Heading LOL!

Reset.

Here, you can reset all settings back to their origional.

Lastly, there is a button where you can clean up your computer.

We are done with Settings.

Now, just press CTRL+F4 to get back to the Freedom Scientific Web site.

This settings web page, opens in another tab.

That is it for settings.

Notice, we made a lot of changes under the advanced settings. You cannot see these, unless you press enter to expand these.

Now, press the Alt key again. Up arrow once to get to the end of the menu where we were with the settings.

You see exit, up arrow and you see the help sub menu, right under the settings choice.

I press right arrow on this help sub menu, and you can enter on the help center to get a lot of help using Chrome.

To open a web site, just press CTRL+L or Alt+D and type the URL.

Chrome for me, is so much quicker with web sites that involve streamming TV and Watching movies, and so on.

For me, Chrome opens large news sites very quickly compared to IE.

Lastly, All JAWS and NVDA navigation key commands work in Chrome. For example, you can press F7 to open a list of links with JAWS, and the elements list with NVDA. All of that is the exact same.

This is the end of the tutorial.

Take care.  Go Rams!

Hi Mike,

I sent this off-list to someone else who kindly replied with the same suggestion.

My friend told me she typed in google.com in the add a page, but when she closed chrome and went back into Google, it still came up on the welcome page.

When she arrows down, both the welcome page and google.com are listed.  The latter twice.

I remember seeing an option to remove a page, but I think it was one of those that got there in a way we can’t.

From my playing around with more actions several times, my page has redundancies that I’d love to remove.

 Open a specific page or set of pages (checked)

Google

https://www.google.com/

More actions

https://www.google.com

https://www.google.com/

More actions

https://www.google.com

https://www.google.com/

More actions

Add a new page

Use current pages

Why can’t they just have an edit box and a set page button?

And if you had multiple pages listed is there a remove button that can be tabbed to.

I only have google listed, but if my friend could remove the welcome page, which I assume is the default, then only the google.com would be left.

I’m too tired probably to be explaining this properly…  Smile.

Subject: [jaws-users] A Question about chrome settings

 

I was trying to help a friend set up her chrome.

In the tutorial from a list member, It said:

Next Important heading:

On Start up.

Here is where you put in your URL that you want to show as soon as you start Chrome.

There are three radio buttons to pick from, but I chose to open with a specific page or pages, which is the third radio button.

Under this, you can type in the URL of the web site that you want to open when you start Chrome.

 

We chose the third button but could not figure out how to enter a web address.

Underneath my checkboxes is the address for google, but JAWS does not list that as being in an edit box.

I set Chrome up so long ago that I can’t remember what I did.

We experimented with the options that followed, more actions, add a new page and use current page, I think it said.  She saw no edit box.

When I google, I find the following directions:

• Open Chrome.

• Click the overflow icon that looks like three vertical dots in the upper right corner.

• Click to open the Settings menu.

• Scroll down and click on Advanced Settings.

• Select Open a specific page or set of pages under On Startup.

• Select Set pages.

list end

Obviously as a keyboard user, I can’t get to that overflow icon as they called it with JAWS and this opens a menu of options not available from the settings menu from the alt key menu.

What are we missing?

Thanks.

Rebecca

This annoyance is why I came up with adapting the desktop shortcut to go directly to your homepage.
It's easiest if you go to your home page and do control + L and control + C to copy the link.
Close Chrome and go to the desktop and press alt + enter on the icon Google Chrome.
tab once to the target field, and press the end key
Do a space and paste in your URL
Save the changes and Google will always open to your home page.

Re: A Question about chrome settings

Rebecca Lineberger
 

Thanks.  My computer is fine, thank goodness, going right to Google for the startup page.

My friend seems to be fairly satisfied with the welcome page as her startup page, since she can search from there as well as go to several visited links.  She can also press alt-home to go to google.com.  I think like me, she’s just frustrated that this is not more intuitive—at least to either of us!  LOL.

I don’t remember having trouble getting rid of the welcome page when I set up Chrome several years ago.

Hi Rebecca,

 

You may want to do a reset.  I know this sounds like a total pain in the Gluteus maximus but, it might be the only way to get Chrome back to the defaults so you can start fresh.  If you want try this...

1. Open Settings and navigate by heading to, Reset and Cleanup.

2. Down arrow 1 time to, Restore settings to their original defaults, down arrow 1 more time to Restore settings to their original defaults button.  I've never done this but, pressing enter or spacebar on this will button will probably start the restoration of the default settings.

Below the above is , Clean up computer, and Clean up computer button but, I'm not sure what this will do.

Thanks.

That was what I was quoting from originally.

All he said was:

Next Important heading:

There are three radio buttons to pick from, but I chose to open with a specific page or pages, which is the third radio button.

Mine shows as google.com, but it’s not an edit box.

Under this, there is a link where you can add more pages you want to show when Chrome starts up.”

Maybe I’ll revisit this with her tomorrow for the seventy-eleventh time!  LOL.

I didn’t know there was a remove under more actions, though JAWS does not call it a button.  Mine shows no URL, so perhaps it just pertains to the page you had open before opening the settings menu.  I do not want to try since mine is set correctly.

Hi Rebecca,

 

See if this tutorial helps any:

I will paste, in this email, my new text tutorial I did on Using the Chrome Browser.
It is totally updated.
I tell you each key command I press, and what JAWS says.
You can read this tutorial, and repeat what I do on your computer.
I take you through all of the settings of Chrome, and tell you how to customize it to your liking.

This tutorial will be done with the latest update of Chrome.

I will also use JAWS 18, JAWS 2018, and NVDA 2018.1 for this tutorial, because they all work the same in Chrome.

Finally, I will use Windows 10 Spring 2018 update, 1803. latest public build.

I will assume that you have downloaded and installed Chrome.

There should be a shortcut on your desktop.

 

Section One:

Launching Chrome:

One way to Launch Chrome, is to press the Windows key or CTRL+Escape and type Chrome in the search edit field, and press enter when you hear JAWS say Chrome.

However, since you have already downloaded Chrome, You will have a shortcut icon on your desktop.

So next, find the shortcut for Chrome on your desktop, and press enter to open Chrome.

The short cut will actually say Google Chrome, so press G to find the Google Chrome icon on your desktop.

The first very important step, is to press Windows+up arrow to maximise the window. Chrome often opens with the window not maximize, and you will get undesirable results.

 

Section Two:

Bringing up a web site.

Press CTRL+L or Alt+D

and type the following:

www.freedomscientific.com

The Freedom Scientific web site comes up very quickly.

All navigation commands like: H for heading, E for edit field, C for combo box, and so on all work just the same in Chrome.

 

Section Three:

The Virticle Chrome menu:

I will press Alt+F.

The Chrome menu is open.

This is a very large virticle menu that you just keep pressing up and down arrow through.

I will press insert+up arrow to hear the first option in this menu.

New Tab, CTRL+T.

You can press that command right from the web site you are on.

New Window, CTRL+N

You can press these commands right from your web page, instead of coming here.

New incognito Window.

History sub menu.

I will press right arrow here to see what is in this sub menu!

History, CTRL+H

So, there is a key command for reading your history.

You can read a few sites you were on right here.

I will press left arrow to close this history sub menu.

Downloads, CTRL+J

There is the command for opening your downloads you have downloaded with Chrome.

Next, the important Bookmarks sub menu.

I will press right arrow, to open this.

I hear, bookmark this page, CTRL+D

That command will bookmark the page you are reading.

Next down arrow, says show bookmarks bar, CTRL+Shift+B

That command, will show your bookmarks on your Chrome browser for all to see. I do not want that.

Here is the important one.

manage bookmarks

The command is, CTRL+Shift+O

In here, you can organize your bookmarks into folders, see the bookmarks you have imported from different browsers, and very importantly, you can download, to your computer, an HTML file of all of your bookmarks in Chrome.

On your computer, you can press enter on this file, after it downloads, and a page will show up in Chrome with a list of all bookmarks you have saved in Chrome. This is an awesome way to download all of your bookmarks right to your computer, so you can back them up.

That is all for manage bookmarks.

Next, I hear import bookmarks and settings.

press enter on this, and you can import all bookmarks and settings from IE, and Firefox, right into Google Chrome, and they will be in their corresponding folders.

Now, I hear all of my saved bookmarks as I continue to arrow down.

Very important!

Sometimes, when I open that bookmarks sub menu, I do not land on the choices I mension here, but instead, I start hearing my saved bookmarks. If this happens, I press up arrow a few times, and it gets me to these choices.

Keep in mind, that many of these choices, like bookmark manager, have key commands, so you do not have to come to this bookmarks sub menu at all. You only need to come here most of the time, to arrow through your saved bookmarks, and enter on the desired one.

To save a web site as a bookmark,

Just press CTRL+D and press enter, and your bookmark is saved.

I will now press left arrow, to close the Bookmarks sub menu!

I will continue to down arrow through this virticle Chrome menu that we entered by just pressing alt.

The next few are very self explanatory.

The next one I will mension, is the more tools submenu.

I will press right arrow on this.

I hear Save Page as, and the command, CTRL+S.

Next, Save to desktop.

This allows you to save the favorite of the page right to your desktop. This is how you do this in Chrome, instead of doing this in the file menu in IE.

It is hidden under this more tools submenu.

Clear Browsing data, and there is the key command, CTRL+Shift+Delete key.

Extentions, In here, you can add extentions, delete extentions and so on.

These are the same as add ons, in IE.

I will press left arrow, to close the More Tools sub menu, and we are back to the virticle Chrome menu.

The last two that I will mention, are settings, and the help sub menu.

If you press the left arrow on the help sub menu, you can open the help system, just like in other programs, so that is all I will say about help.

Now, we will press enter on settings, and a web like page will open where the virtual cursor will turn on with JAWS, and NVDA will be in Brows mode.

 

Section Four:

Adjusting Settings and Advanced settings:

Now that this web page is open, I will just down arrow down the page and we will deal with each setting.

Important:

I have already signed into Chrome.

So now, arrow down until you hear sign into Chrome and press enter.

You just enter your email address and password, I think it has to be the same email address and password that you used to set up your Google account.

I am not sure about this.

You do not need to sign into Chrome, if you do, you can sync all of your activity between all devices that you have Chrome on. That is the only advantage of signing in.

I will continue with what I hear after you have signed in.

If you do not sign in, press H until you hear Appearance.

Each group of settings is a heading that you can get to by pressing H. This makes it very easy, because you just press H until you hear the group of settings you want to work with.

Now, because I have signed in, this is what I hear before getting to appearance.

The first thing you hear:

Settings.

That is the very top of the web page.

Down arrow, and you hear:

Main Menu Button.

That will just take you back to the virticle menu we were in.

If you down arrow again, you will just hear blank.

Down arrow, again, and you hear:

Settings again, but now, this is a heading. You can get here just by pressing H at the top of the page.

If you down arrow, you hear:

Search Settings.

This is where you can type in a setting that you want to change.

Down arrow again, and there is the edit field where you type in the setting you want to work with.

Down arrow again, and you hear another heading saying people.

Down arrow again, and I hear David Clickable.

This is because I have already signed into Chrome.

Down arrow again, and I hear my Gmail email address.

Again, this is because I have already signed into Chrome to sync my settings and all of that.

Down arrow again, and I hear:

Edit person.

This is where I could change my name.

Down arrow again, and I hear:

Sign Out.

This is because I have already signed in to Chrome.

Down arrow again, and I hear:

Sync.

Down arrow again, and I hear:

On, Sync everything.

This is a combo box, where you can choose what to sinc; I chose everything in this combo box.

Again, all of this is because I have signed into Chrome already.

Down arrow again, and you hear:

Sync button.

Down arrow again, and you hear:

Manage other people clickable.

Don't worry about the clickables. There is a clickable for many things, but then there is the button you enter on right after that.

Down arrow again, and you hear:

Manage other people button.

This is what you would press enter on to set up another user.

Down arrow again, and you hear:

Import bookmarks and settings Clickable:

Down arrow again, and you actually hear

Import bookmarks and settings button.

Here, you press enter and import all of your bookmarks and settings from other Browsers like IE.

This is another way of doing this, because remember,

We had a choice of manage bookmarks in the book marks sub menu in the virticle menu.

There is more than one place to do things in Chrome.

Now, we have a series of headings, that you can just press H for heading, to get to.

Now, we have gotten to the appearance heading. Down arrow and you hear:

themes, which I did nothing with.

Next, you can open the Chrome web store. You can get hundreds of extensions, and more.

Then, you hear Themes button.

Do nothing with this.

Next, you hear:

Show home clickable.

Just skip that.

There are many buttons that say clickable, and then there is a button that you actually press enter on to work with it.

Just work with the buttons, and skip over these clickables.

Down arrow, and you have an edit box where you can put in your home page you want to get to by pressing Alt+Home.

Next, there is the home button toggle.

Press the spacebar to turn this on or off. If it is on, you can have the home button show at the top of the Chrome Window.

I have it checked.

Next, you get to the button where you can show the bookmarks toolbar at the top of every web site.

You might want to check this, because it might be easier to see all of your bookmarks.

Next, you have the font size choice where you can choose how large the fonts are in Chrome. There is a combo box that is set to medium by default.

Next, you have the Customize Fonts button.

Next, you have page zoom. There is a combo box set to 100 percent by default.

Now, we are at another heading, where you can set your search Engine.

There is a combo box below, and I set it to Google because I like to have my searches open with the Google search engine on the address bar instead of Bing.

Next heading:

Default Browser.

Here, you can choose weather you want Chrome to be your default browser or not.

Just leave this alone if you do not want Chrome to be your default browser.

Next Important heading:

On Start up.

There are a few choices here of what you want to open when you start up Google Chrome.

There are radio buttons.

The first radio button you could check is to have Chrome open in a new blank tab.

The next radio button, is to have Chrome open right where you left off the last time you closed out of Chrome. This could be handy!

The third radio button you can check:

Open a specific page or a set of pages.

Under this, you can type in the URL's of the web sites that you want to open when you start Chrome.

Next, you can add a new page to your start up pages.

Next important group of settings, the advanced settings.

Now, you have to press enter on the advanced settings button before more headings of settings will show.

The Advanced settings are collapsed, so you have to press enter to show more headings of settings.

Now that these advanced settings are open, we get to the next heading of settings.

There is much more we can customize under the advanced settings.

Privacy and security heading:

Down arrow from here, and you hear:

Google Chrome may use web services to improve your browsing experience. You may optionally disable these services. Next, there is a link that says learn more.

Next, you hear:

use a web service to resolve navigation errors.

Press spacebar to toggle this on or off.

Now you have:

Use a prediction service to enable you in searches.

I left this unchecked.

Next, you have a setting to speed up the loading of web pages:

I checked this with spacebar.

The next three settings I just left alone.

I checked the one that says:

Use a web service to help with spelling.

I leave manage certificates alone.

Next, you have content settings, but this is not a new heading.

We are still working with the same heading.

The only thing of interest here, is the clear history button.

This was available in the virtical menu, so don't worry about this.

Now, we get to the next heading of settings.

Passwords and forms:

Under this heading, just make sure that you check to be able to have Chrome save passwords.

Languages Heading:

I did nothing with this.

Downloads heading:

This is where you choose where you want your downloads to be saved on your computer.

Printing heading:

I did nothing with this.

Accessibility heading:

I did nothing with this.

Now, we have the System heading:

Down arrow, and you hear:

Continue running background apps, when Google Chrome is Closed.

I have this unchecked.

Next,

Use hard ware excelloration when Available.

I have this checked.

Next, you hear:

Open proxy settings button.

I left this alone.

Last Heading LOL!

Reset.

Here, you can reset all settings back to their origional.

Lastly, there is a button where you can clean up your computer.

We are done with Settings.

Now, just press CTRL+F4 to get back to the Freedom Scientific Web site.

This settings web page, opens in another tab.

That is it for settings.

Notice, we made a lot of changes under the advanced settings. You cannot see these, unless you press enter to expand these.

Now, press the Alt key again. Up arrow once to get to the end of the menu where we were with the settings.

You see exit, up arrow and you see the help sub menu, right under the settings choice.

I press right arrow on this help sub menu, and you can enter on the help center to get a lot of help using Chrome.

To open a web site, just press CTRL+L or Alt+D and type the URL.

Chrome for me, is so much quicker with web sites that involve streamming TV and Watching movies, and so on.

For me, Chrome opens large news sites very quickly compared to IE.

Lastly, All JAWS and NVDA navigation key commands work in Chrome. For example, you can press F7 to open a list of links with JAWS, and the elements list with NVDA. All of that is the exact same.

This is the end of the tutorial.

Hi Mike,

I sent this off-list to someone else who kindly replied with the same suggestion.

My friend told me she typed in google.com in the add a page, but when she closed chrome and went back into Google, it still came up on the welcome page.

When she arrows down, both the welcome page and google.com are listed.  The latter twice.

I remember seeing an option to remove a page, but I think it was one of those that got there in a way we can’t.

From my playing around with more actions several times, my page has redundancies that I’d love to remove.

Why can’t they just have an edit box and a set page button?

And if you had multiple pages listed is there a remove button that can be tabbed to.

I only have google listed, but if my friend could remove the welcome page, which I assume is the default, then only the google.com would be left.

I’m too tired probably to be explaining this properly…  Smile.

I was trying to help a friend set up her chrome.

In the tutorial from a list member, It said:

Next Important heading:

On Start up.

Here is where you put in your URL that you want to show as soon as you start Chrome.

There are three radio buttons to pick from, but I chose to open with a specific page or pages, which is the third radio button.

Under this, you can type in the URL of the web site that you want to open when you start Chrome.

 

We chose the third button but could not figure out how to enter a web address.

Underneath my checkboxes is the address for google, but JAWS does not list that as being in an edit box.

I set Chrome up so long ago that I can’t remember what I did.

We experimented with the options that followed, more actions, add a new page and use current page, I think it said.  She saw no edit box.

When I google, I find the following directions:

• Open Chrome.

• Click the overflow icon that looks like three vertical dots in the upper right corner.

• Click to open the Settings menu.

• Scroll down and click on Advanced Settings.

• Select Open a specific page or set of pages under On Startup.

• Select Set pages.

list end

Obviously as a keyboard user, I can’t get to that overflow icon as they called it with JAWS and this opens a menu of options not available from the settings menu from the alt key menu.

What are we missing?

Thanks.

This annoyance is why I came up with adapting the desktop shortcut to go directly to your homepage.

It's easiest if you go to your home page and do control + L and control + C to copy the link.

Close Chrome and go to the desktop and press alt + enter on the icon Google Chrome.

tab once to the target field, and press the end key

Do a space and paste in your URL

Save the changes and Google will always open to your home page.

I’m hoping someone can give me step-by-step instructions for how to rip a CD with VLC media player. I’ve tried intuition and Google, but I’m getting nowhere. I know to start with control-r, and I also know to select disc. I know that VLC recognizes the CD I have in that drive. However, I can’t get any results. One time I accidentally recorded two tracks, but even though they were somehow saved as .WAV files and VLC is my default .WAV app, there’s no sound. By contrast, when I just play the CD with VLC, the sound is fine.

 

I’ll mention that I have Windows Media player set to rip CDs, but I close that program when I want VLC to do the job. Could it be interfering anyway?

2: once the cd is inserted and not playing, execute vlc
3: press alt+m and down arrow to convert. . . . and press enter
4: now, press alt plus d and tab to convert. . . and press enter again
5: tab to destination and press enter, you will be prompted for a file name, I would enter something like c:\filename and press enter.
6: tab to save and press enter.
7: now, tab till you hear start press enter and press enter. the process should start. if you are running windows 10, you may be prompted to save the rip to the music folder, there, press alt plus y. hope this helps.

Hi one thing this happened to me also. Yes mine was for start-up and I found that I had one setting off due to updating. It was for all users at start up. Just make sure you are in the Jaws you want it to start at start up and go and make sure that both questions are answered and saved. Hope this helps Louise and princess Kiara

Hi Glenn,
 
Chrome continues to run appsin the background after you Close Chrome but, you can do the following to stop this from happening:
1. Open tsettings in Google Chrome.
 
2. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click Show advanced settings.
 
3. Under System, uncheck the box next to “Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed”. 
 That’s all!
Here are 2 links that explain why Chrome continues to run apps in the background and a more complete explanation on how to shut them down.
 
 
 
 
Take care.  Go Rams!

I removed Chrome, and reinstalled it.
It seemed to remember the settings I had before.
But I have gone through all the settings many times and I can't find anything turned on that would cause these notification pop-ups.
They are like windows pop-up messages that come up and go away, only these are like spam notifications.
The only way I can get them to end is to close Chrome and open task manager and close other instances of Chrome.

Hi one thing this happened to me also. Yes mine was for start-up and I found that I had one setting off due to updating. It was for all users at start up. Just make sure you are in the Jaws you want it to start at start up and go and make sure that both questions are answered and saved. Hope this helps Louise and princess Kiara

Re: File association

Subject: Re: [jaws-users] File association

 

In Windows 7, the file association process was handled essentially with two columns, one of applications, the other of file types. I could, for example, select Window Media Player in the first column, then turning to the second, use first-letter navigation (beginning with a period) to locate a file type I wanted that application to open.

 

In Windows 10, as Mike B explains in a post I’ve copied below, you select a general category, such as email or video, and choose an application to handle that entire genre.

 

But what if I want Windows Media Player to handle some audio file types but VLC some other audio file types? It looks like the only way to do this is to select “Choose default app by file types.” Clicking on this link takes me to an interminable list of file types listed by button so that I must tab three thousand times to get, for example, to .WAV.

 

Is there a more efficient method available to screenreader users?

Hi Glenn,

 

Try the following:

1. Windows key + I, to open Settings, tab 1 time to, System, now right arrow to, Apps, and press enter.

2. Tab 1 time to get into a list of options, down arrow to Default Apps and press enter.

3. Tab 1 time to hear, Email... button, and press enter.  Now tab or shift / tab to find the email client you want to use for the default and press enter.

4. You can now close out and check to make sure your choice sticks.

Take care.  Go Rams!

You should be able to go to control panel and type in default programs and tab to set a default program and find it in the list.

I may be leaving out a final step, I don't know windows 10 very well.

I just tried helping someone do this with setting windows 10 mail program as the default program, and it still defaults to Thunderbird.
