Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

I'm using it at home--everything 64-bit. Incidentally, I'm using 7 PRO AT HOME. I don't use Outlook, but all else is working well. It takes a little time to set up the programs to open with the look you want, but it's not all that complicated. For what it's worth, Excel works well.

Is anyone using Office 13 Pro with J16 Home? How different is it from 7 or 10? I don't need any of the spread sheet applications, just Word and Outlook and Windows Explorer.

Oh, I am talking serious dictation not just a line at a time which I currently do on my phone. I'm talking about controlling apps with my voice as well as dictating whole blocks of text such as in the writing of a novel!

Here is an easy for you... Can I use Office 13 Pro with J16 Standard edition?

Deidre,

James has already pointed you in one good JAWS-related direction. There may even be a list for users of those two applications and JAWS.

One more thing to consider. The iPhone (along with other Apple products such as the iPad and the Mac) has a built-in dictation program that many visually impaired users like. To find a list for blind users of the iPhone, try Googling the word idevices.

Hello all
I am embarking on getting up to speed with the best of what is out there for blind computer users. I've been using Jaws for over 25 years and now want to
add dictation software into the picture, so to speak. I live in western
Ma, have been a guide dog user since the late 80's, I have been a masseuse for 25 years, and now have wicked carpal tunnel which I am headed to surgery for, and that is now making me look into setting up my new computer with
dictation software of one sort or another. One thing missing is how to
find out about tech fairs that include demonstrations of assistive technology products from the various developers. I heard that I just missed a fair 20 minutes down the road from me because I have not been tuned into any newsletter or list that informs me of any of that. I was on FS's site and didn't se anything pertaining to upcoming presentations of their products anywhere, other than at the July NFB conference. I suppose announcements of this sort are left to local vendors of Jaws (and others) products to advertise.
If there is anyone on list in western Massachusetts, let's say in the Springfield area, can you point me to a place where such tech fairs would be advertised?
I downloaded the iblink app on my iPhone and am able to listen to a number of good podcasts on various products for the blind. FS has it's podcast listed there. Still it appears as if some of the most popular ones are missing from iblink radio. If anyone can suggest podcasts that are not to be missed in terms of keeping someone up to date with Windows 8 and up, demos of dictation software, new versions of Jaws, I'd appreciate it. I don't know of many assistive technology people in my area but they exist. We used to or maybe still have Adaptive Technologies and New England Low Vision out east of me but there must be people closer in that I could speak to, and who could demo some set ups for me.

Deidre
