Re: Is there a keystroke to make openbook talk faster/pitch

Sugar <sugarsyl71@...>
 

Hi Doug, yes, it is in your tool menu in Open book.
go to settings and then to general, the there you will find rate, pitch, etc...
once you have checked or completed your keys, you need to go to the save menu and save them.
I had to learn by playing around, sorry if this doesn't help, but i don't know the strokes by memory.
I do know that is in the tool menu in open book, and under "settings"

Hello Listers,
Is there a keystroke to make openbook to talk faster, and change the pitch?

I have openbook 7.02 and Windows XP.

I hope to hear from you soon.

jaws and graphics card

Kristoffer Gustafsson
 

Hi.
I've got a graphics card question.
I've got an older computer, with an asus motherboard.
Today when I started it for the first time, we discovered that the graphics card is broken, So I've got to buy another one.
My question now is, can I run jaws on a card with 32 mb graphics memory, or how much do I need to have?

Re: security

Steve <k8sp@...>
 

Well, I will disagree slightly with that response. The average person with even a high tech capability doesn't have the wherewithall to test anti-virus programs.

There are independent labs that test these and you can see the results in reputable magazines.

For a free product, Microsoft Security Essentials has tested very high. It rivals most of the commercial anti-virus programs in terms of effectiveness, and it is the top-rated free anti-virus program. Check out the articles in Windows Secrets magazine, which are archived for members, among other places.

The thing I like about MSSE is that it is unobtrusive, doesn't pop up any strange dialogs in front of Jaws that you have to kill like AVG did, and it is completely accessible.

The only way to find out if it's really better is to test it against actual viruses and malicious programmes. Many people use it; it wouldn't hurt you to try out the programme for yourself and see if you like it. Always remember that there are lots of alternatives available, and that's almost always a good thing....

Latest Avast is very screen reader friendly in fact. I use it from the beginning and I'm satisfied with it.
You should switch off the filter for potentialy harmful programs and won't be iritated so offten if you wish it. But I don't recommend it.

WordPerfect X5 script

Marijan Janev
 

Hi Friends,
Because I have to use WP15 on a 32-bit win7 machine, and jaws11 and 12 don't come with any script for that program, I have to add a line in the
ConfigNames.ini
something like
wpwin15=WordPerfect X3
in order to use WP13 scripts under the 15.
But I faced the problem - when I move character by character PC-cursor doesn't read the unicode characters like Cyrilic letters, and speaks only Euro, euro, etc. It happens independantly on the fact if the reveals codes are switched on or off. I'm not a scripter at all and don't know what causes the function SayCharacter in the script not to function properly.
Is there any idea or suggestion how to solve this problem?
It's very important for me, unfortunately.
Thanks in advance for any help.

M.

Re: Putting your response first, was: security

Steve <k8sp@...>
 

Part of the reason for putting your response on top is it is a lot easier to see it with a screen reader than to go to the bottom and work up. But a lot of newsgroups that I'm on with sighted participants, there is a larger group, though not a majority, that put their responses on the bottom.

A bit off topic (though not completely), but the old (read, pre-mass-market-internet) accepted standard seemed to be to put your response after the message to which you were replying, but the current majority preference seems to be the reverse. That said, quoting specific parts of a message to which you intend to respond is a nice habit to get into, though it's hardly necessary for non-technical lists where there's really neither much debate or jargon, like this one.

Ok. I'll try to do so. Most sighted people like it the other way, so I'll adapt depending to which list I am posting.
