In office 2007 or later, go to the reference tab on the upper ribbon, then press down arrow. Once you've pressed down arrow, tab over to word count.


Re: Languages

Cristóbal
 

That and uncheck the language detection option in Jaws. It causes more
problems than anything. Not necessarily an issues with Jaws, but rather the
lack of proper tagging.

I believe the best you could do if the page is not tagged properly is to
make up a different voice profile, via jaws + j, v, v and change the
synthesizer language to Spanish and give the profile a new name when you
save it. When it asks if you want to make the new profile the default
answer 'no'.

Then when you find a troublesome page hit jaws + ctrl + s and select the
profile you created above. When you navigate back to untagged English pages
you will need to switch back to your usual profile.

At that point it's a matter of testing, if most of the pages you go to are
properly tagged English, properly tagged Spanish and some untagged Spanish
then you could probably get away with making the new profile your default.
But if as I suspect most English pages are not properly tagged and those
are the majority of the pages you encounter then it would probably be better
to leave your original profile as the default and only switch to the new one
on an as needed basis.

Re: Getting around on the internet

Cal <yesitscal@...>
 

Daniel, thanks for the suggestion. it's one that I hadn't thought of, but I guess you often times forget to consider the obvious.

Jon, I'm using IE8 and, yes, I meant the virtual cursor not going back to where it was on the previous page, but it also happens when I use Firefox as well.

Thank you both for your replies to my question.

Re: Getting around on the internet

Jon Pierson <joncpierson@...>
 

Hi Cal,
You mentioned "The PcCursor is at the top of the page". Is it the PcCursor
or VirtualCursor that is in effect after you alt plus left arrow to go back
a page?
The other thing in question here, you didn't mention which browser you are
using. Quite often I've seen this behavior with Firefox but rarely with IE.

Subject: Getting around on the internet

Hi! I don't know how unusual this question is, but I'm asking it because
JAWS is reacting differently to how it once did and I'm not sure why or if I
can switch things back to how it used to work for me. When I'm browsing
online and click on a link to read the subsequent page it's all well and
good, but when I do an alt + left arrow to go back to the previous page I
end up at the top of the page instead of at the link that I had just clicked
on. For instance, before if I were on the Los Angeles Times home page and
clicked the link for top stories I could read the top stories on the
subsequent page and then do an alt + left arrow to go back to the home page
and it would put me back at the link for top stories, but now the PC cursor
seems to end up at the top of the page and I have to scroll down to get back
to the top stories link. Is there some way I can set JAWS to return to the
last visited link when I do an alt + left arrow? I hope this isn't too
confusing a description. Thanks for your help.

Mike:

The detect languages checkbox is already checked, but I guess if the HTML is
not properly formated to tell the browser and JAWS what language it is
written in, it does no good. I find that Spanish language newspapers, n
general, are properly formatted. Other pages, not so mush.

Hi Daniel,

You can also try the following;
1. Go to the Settings Center / default all applications.
2. Arrow down to Text Processing, press right arrow to open, down arrow to
General, & right arrow to open.
3. Down arrow to, Detect Languages, it's #11 of 17, & check this box.
4. Tab to apply, press the spacebar, tab to okay , press the spacebar to
save your changes & close.

You can also go to Jaws Options / Quick Settings with the keystroke Insert /

Jaws key + V.
2. Go to Reading Options, arrow down to Languages detect change, check this
box, press enter to save your changes & close.

I can't swear that these changes will work as well as creating a new voice
profile but, I had to turn these off because when Jaws would recognize
another language it would start reading in this other language & I never
knew what the hell Jaws was saying.

Hope this helps.
Take care.

Re: Getting around on the internet

I don't know of a JAWS workaround for this problem, but you can just open
another windows when you click on the link. On Internet Explorer just
navigate to the link with INSERT F7 and then hit SHIFT + ENTER. If you are
using another browser, just get help on the hot key for opening a different
window.

can switch things back to how it used to work for me. When I'm browsing
online and click on a link to read the subsequent page it's all well and
good, but when I do an alt + left arrow to go back to the previous page I
end up at the top of the page instead of at the link that I had just clicked
on. For instance, before if I were on the Los Angeles Times home page and
clicked the link for top stories I could read the top stories on the
subsequent page and then do an alt + left arrow to go back to the home page
and it would put me back at the link for top stories, but now the PC cursor
seems to end up at the top of the page and I have to scroll down to get back
to the top stories link. Is there some way I can set JAWS to return to the
last visited link when I do an alt + left arrow? I hope this isn't too
confusing a description. Thanks for your help.

I believe the best you could do if the page is not tagged properly is
to make up a different voice profile, via jaws + j, v, v and change
the synthesizer language to Spanish and give the profile a new name
when you save it. When it asks if you want to make the new profile
the default answer 'no'.

Then when you find a troublesome page hit jaws + ctrl + s and select
the profile you created above. When you navigate back to untagged
English pages you will need to switch back to your usual profile.

At that point it's a matter of testing, if most of the pages you go to
are properly tagged English, properly tagged Spanish and some untagged
Spanish then you could probably get away with making the new profile
your default. But if as I suspect most English pages are not properly
tagged and those are the majority of the pages you encounter then it
would probably be better to leave your original profile as the default
and only switch to the new one on an as needed basis.

I sometimes surf into Spanish language web pages and Eloquence switches to

Re: Team viewer

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Webex and Go-to-Meeting work, but you have to share your screen, not the other way around. That isn't as bad as it sounds, but then I use it to collaborate on contracts, not participate in PowerPoint presentations.
The only way, I know, to "see" a remote screen in a presentation is with a product called Accessible Event from Serotech.
Don't know about Team Viewer, but it works with most of the collaboration tools, rendering what appears on the remote screen into HTML that displays on your screen.
Accessible Event is a paid service, and the person presenting has to set up through Accessible Event.
I wish there were a way to use a tool to plug in from the client side to do what Accessible Event does, render the screen into HTML and then display on the client's screen.

JFW and NAS Drive Software

Peter Donahue
 

Good morning everyone,

By way of a quick introduction I'm Peter Donahue from San Antonio Texas.
I was on one of the old JFW Lists in the late 1990s the one hosted by Nick
Allen of Australia. At FS's urging I was encouraged to join this list as
We're in the market for a Network Attached Storage System and need to get
recommendations from other JFW users concerning the usability of NAS
software with JAWS.

For those unfamilliar with Network Attached Storage these systems allow
an individual or a corporation to "Warehouse" their data in a single place
on their computer network. NAS drives contain one to 30 disks and can store
terrabytes of information. They also have the ability to "Mirror" drives. In
the event a single disk is damaged or becomes unusable your data is still
protected from loss as a "Copy" of the effected disk is created by the
system. This is a form of data redundency and is a good feature to have if
you have lots of important files to store.

Until now we've used external hard drives but feel that it makes more
sense to keep our important information on a single storage that can be
accessed from all of our computers, over the Internet and via a smart phone.
Quite a few NAS systems have most if not all of these capabilities and a
whole lot more. Some include media servers, print servers, Web servers,
along with other capabilities.

Whenever we consider purchassing new enhancements to our information
management infrastructure if it has a software component the old question
must be answered "Will it work with JAWS?" Before we shell out the bucks
we're hoping to answer this question to insure that the NAS system we
purchass will meet our needs and be usable with JAWS. Right now a prime
candidate for purchass is products from Buffalo Technologies:
http://www.buffalotech.com

I've been communicating with one of Buffalo's tech support gurus who is
testing their management software "Linkstation" and "Terastation" for its
usability with JAWS. Unfortunately they performed their testing with Google
Chrome and got the expected results. I told them that Google Chrome is
currently not supported by JAWS and to retest using Internet Explorer or
Firefox. Since it's a holiday weekend here in the states and they'll
probably be swampped with calls from clients whose systems need
resussitation I probably won't hear back from them until later next week.
However I will commend them for taking the time to test their software using
the JFW demo. Are there any Buffalo NAS users on this list? I'd like to hear
about your experiences with their software and JFW.

Since we've been using Western Digital products we considered their "My
Book Live" cloud storage system but heard that the configuration software
was problematic with JAWS. Patriot Memory's Javelin product would meet our
needs but I'm not very impressed with a company who doesn't man its sales
line during business hours so potential customers can reach a human that can
help them instead of having to leave a message on their voicemail system and
wait for a call that may or may not be returned. The one person I know who
uses a Patriot Memory NAS product told me it works well with JFW.

Iomega, HP, and NetGear are other NAS contenders. If folks here can
recommend other NAS products that are JFW-friendly we'd like to hear about
them. Your suggestions and recommendations will be very much appreciated.

Re: Team viewer

Tom Lange
 

Hi,
A couple of years ago, at my previous job, I was asked to use Teamviewer to collaborate with some people on a project. Although I could sign in okay using the client and the credentials that were given to me, JAWS wouldn't read the remote computer's screens at all, and, when I inquired about whether the remote session was done with a thin client using Citrix or something similar, the answer that I got back was a definite yes. So, to make a long story short, there was no way to do what was asked of me because of accessibility issues. Thankfully my boss was very understanding about the whole thing.

I suspect that not a lot has changed since then and that using JAWS 13 wouldn't solve the problem were I to encounter a similar situation.

Tom

Peter,

I believe that is true. You can respond to a request to connect, but then
there is no interaction except to sit and listen to your own computer
changing. You can't "see" the other computer.

Has anyone on this list been able to use team viewer with Jaws 13? My
initial impression is that jaws will read the team viewer program reasonably
well, but Jaws will not read the material on the client's or remotely
accessed computer.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
