Subject: Re: Installing Jaws scripts
Hi Udo: Actually I'm installing some old scripts for a music
keyboard editor from 2011. On this particular machine, I'm using windows 7
and jaws 14.
You can find the folder dealing with user scripts this
1. Depending on your JAWS
a) If you start JAWS in system tray then press JAWS+J to open
JAWS context menu
b) If you don't start JAWS in system tray then Press JAWS+J
to bring JAWS window to the front and activate the menu by pressing alt
2. Select "Utilities" and open it
3. Select "Explore Utilities Folder". Now Explorer will open
with some file links.
4. Search for "Explore my settings" file link and activate
it. Another Explorer window will now open containing your settings and user
If your script file is for a particular application you can
copy the scripts file here. If the JSB file is from an older version of JAWS
it's a good idea to open your application, then press JAWS+0 (0 in the number
row above the chars, not the number block on the right side). This will open
Script Manager with your script file. Press Control+S to compile the script
again, a new JSB will be made from JAWS.
If your script file is not for a particular application or
another script file for an application already exists, you can include your file
with a "USE" command. It this is what you need let me know and I can describe
this in detail.
Good luck with your script file

Hi: perhaps it's my age, but it's been a long time, and I
don't remember how to install jaws scripts, the JSB JSD and JSS files. Could
someone walk me through it?

Then, Diane, we definitely come from very, very
different worlds. I can come up with at least 20 questions, off the top
of my head, that exceed this one in offensiveness.
There can be people
who are being offensive, but I have very clearly explained why it is foolish,
yes, foolish to assume that without additional evidence.
And I will
say, again, that all accessibility is a workaround. In the case of
screen readers, it is the substitution of audition for vision. The two
senses are in no way directly equivalent. This will always entail
compromises and while the experience can be substantially the same when it
comes to text-based information, it will never be for many things that cannot
be captured that way.
And the idea that "light dependence no longer
needs to be the only way to access information" has been here, now, for quite
a while. But the fact is, and will always remain, that visual media, and
anything on a computer besides text is just that, is going to be designed
primarily with that in mind. That it should be accessible, to the
maximal extent possible, via other means should be a given in good
design. But do not delude yourself into thinking that even things most
ideally designed for maximal accessibility can, or will, ever be able to give
you "exactly the same information" that the sighted get, because they
And, by the way, my earlier comments regarding tech support was
for tech support dedicated to screen reader users or users of other assistive
technology. Most techs not in that arena have no reason to know about
assistive technology. It is not cost effective to try to train every
generic help desk person in how to use a screen reader, particularly since
most larger companies do have dedicated AT support and smaller companies have
to pick where their money goes. If there is not a substantial blind user
base of a given product, and the maker is a small company down to "mom and
pop," they cannot reasonably be expected to have screen reader literate tech
And that's not because you're less of a person, or less worthy
of respect. It's because you are part of a tiny minority in the general
population and there are limited resources, financial and otherwise. I
really cannot believe that anyone who is blind does not understand this, I
really can't. And if that's offensive to say, so be it, because it is a
fact, and one that is never, ever going to change.
