Occasional JAWS 13

Dave...
 

Ed,

I'd be interested in knowing for what functions you occasionally use JAWS
13?

I might want to adopt that methodology.

Windows 8 may ve interesting. I listened to a Podcast through iBlink Radio
(iPhone App) put out by the NVDA folks.
It looks like Windows 8 will have touch screen gesture type functionality as
well as support for little programs, like Apps on the iPhone, that connect
to the Web but do not require the browser as is typically the case in
Windows today.
If JAWS 14 is fully supporting all that new Windows 8 stuff, the things
broken in JAWS 13 will probably just stay broken.

I guess we will just have to wait. I'm content with JAWS 12, even though I
have (and occasionally have to use) that train wreck called JAWS 13.

Oh, good grief.

I'm working on getting a new computer right now, which will have Windows
7...

Now, they are putting out an 8.

At least, my Jaws is current, for whatever that is worth.

Upgrading JAWS Please be Careful

Paul Bolduc
 

Good afternoon,



I say please be careful because maybe some programs would not be compatible
with the upgrade.



I cannot upgrade beyond JAWS 13 because it would not be compatible with
J-Say and then I don't know what can of worms I might have opened.



This came from the company that installed JAWS, J-Say and a few more
programs. There would have to be several major improvements which at the
present time doesn't seem to be so in my viewpoint I'm not going to gamble.




Everybody have a Great Weekend,

Re: JAWS 14 FSCast

Gerald Levy
 

Sorry, but I don't thtink FS has any plans to add a captcha-solving feature to JAWS 14. Eric Damery has claimed in the past that there are too many legal and logistical issues involved . So for the foreseeable future, Wevisum with Firefox will remain the only viable captcha-solving option. The impression I got from the FSCast is that whatever feature is being added to JAWS 14 involves enhanced web search capability, not captcha deciphering.

Good morning everyone,

I'll be curious to see what kind of new Internet access tool they're
adding to JFW 14 when the October FS Cast is available. Solving captchas has
been something we've waited for screen reader vendors to address for once
and for all. If FS has finally cracked this for us with this new Internet
access tool they will have done something needed for a long time. Recently I
have encountered captchas that are readable with screen readers. It would be
interesting to know how the creators of such captcha applications are able
to render the image characters so they can be read by screen readers yet be
hidden from spam bots. Check out www.withheartandvoice.org particularly
their feedback form where you can see an example of this in action. They're
using a service called www.textcaptcha.com.

If FS has developed an innovated Internet access solution that addresses
this issue and other concerns great. If this thing is nothing more than a
SamNet.com look-alike what a waste of time and resources that could have
been used to fix other JFW problems. Guess we'll need to be sure to check
out the October FS Cast when it becomes available.

Thanks to Dean Martineau's newsletter today, I learn that there is an FSCast
on JAWS 14. I am in the school that wishes FS would fix problems rather than
add new features, but the ones in JAWS 14 look very promising.

FS is making available Vocalizer voices, still being developed by Nuance.
(Neither Eloquence nor RealSpeak has been upgraded in years.) Based on the
FSCast demonstration, they sound more pleasing and appear more responsive to
commands than RealSpeak. There may finally be a viable alternative to
Dectalk Express, which I have clung to through the years.

The demonstration of JAWS 14 and Windows 8 is also encouraging, and FS has
made a change to how JAWS handles Outlook messages that might finally
convince me to upgrade from 2003.

The improvements to Text Analyzer look as though they'll simplify the visual
aspects of editing documents.

Re: Glad to Hear

Dave...
 

JM,

Yes, for those who continue with SMA these annual releases can be evaluated
and tossed. But for others who let the SMA lapse the cost to upgrade is very
high. The luxury of choosing is expensive. Still I agree that whether to
upgrade or not is a choice --- but it is a choice with some penalties either
way.

What version have you decided to stay with?
I'm still with 13.0.924.

And has anyone wondered why the "0" never seems to change? What happened to
that? I started with 3.5. Not 3.0.5. I guess major or significant patches
don't happen anymore.

I do agree with this. But remember, nobody has to upgrade just because an

glorious new feature that I absolutely must have, right now! Want to guess

Case in point.
Reading a track change document with JAWS 13, there is no indication of
what was inserted or what was deleted. A critical issue.
Read the same exact document with JAWS 12 (with the same track change
settings in effect in both Word and JAWS) and everything is announced
perfectly.
I confirmed just today with Freedom Scientific that JAWS 13 broke track
change recognition. It is partly fixed in the most recent build and is
supposed to be completely fixed with the next build.
Don't physicians have to take an oath, the Hippocratic Oath, that, at

I wish programmers took such an oath and were prohibited from releasing
any product with any new feature until it was verified that no damage was

I have a question that I'm hoping someone can help me with:
Currently, when I read through a document, I must manually change
pages when I come to the next page. And, when I do, it puts me at
the
bottom of the next page, rather than at the top. My sighted wife

that the pages appear next to each other in the document, rather than
from
the top to the bottom of the entire document in consecutive order.
How can I get Jaws to

I'm using Windows 7, Microsoft Word in Office 2007, and Jaws
13.

Thank you.

Below is a post from Brian Lee that corrected this problem for me:

You might want to check under the view tab and make sure zoom is set at 100
percent. Use Alt followed by W to move on to the View tab and then use tab
key across the bottom part of the ribbon. Tab one time past the Zoom button
and you should find a button labeled 100%. Press spacebar on that button.
Go back under the view tab and use tab key to the button labeled "one page"
and press spacebar. Check the document after doing those things to see if
it still jumps pages.

Hi all,

I'm writing to find out if anyone has had any experience using jaws with the
following software:

The first piece of software is a crm software called Solve 360 - which is
put out by Norada.com.

The second piece of software is a predictive dialler is - Vicidial which
works in conjunction with the voidt interface Bria.

I have an opportunity for a job, and would like to know if these pieces of
software are accessible.

Thanks in advance for any info anyone can provide.

mine here at the district, an assistive technology specialist for a large
part of the state, recently switched over to the mac and told me to switch
over to the mac because with jaws, all people are doing is paying for bug
fixes.

Now that is nothing to do with anything, I just thought of his comment when
Mr. Dave Carlson said something about bug fixes.

I'm glad to hear that no one has any more problems with JAWS, and that we
are all looking forward to the new set of bugs soon to be released with
version 14. Just can't wait.

Mailing list related downtime

James Homuth
 

Folks,

You may or may not have been attempting to send mail to one of these lists
since Sunday. Apparently, while things were busy blowing up on this end, the
list software decided it would be awesome to take a small vacation. I've
since ended that vacation, and if I didn't break half the server in the
process, you should be getting this mail. Unfortunately, due to the nature
of email you'll need to most likely resend any messages you've sent to the
list. But when you do, they will go through.

James,
Systems Admin

ptusing <ptusing@...>
 

\dear \sir,
\after sending you requests, I paid some one to try to get
my messages started again.

The messages stop every 14 days.

He did his best to try to get my messages started againa nd noted I was listed as a list member.

Isthere some link called
"resume messages"?

I do not mind paying decent money once, but my messagessimplys top every month or twice a month.

\Thanks.

I forgot to mention that Windows 8 is scheduled to be released on October
26, and the release of JAWS 14 is planned for the end of October.

JAWS 14 FSCast

Adrian Spratt
 

Thanks to Dean Martineau's newsletter today, I learn that there is an FSCast
on JAWS 14. I am in the school that wishes FS would fix problems rather than
add new features, but the ones in JAWS 14 look very promising.

FS is making available Vocalizer voices, still being developed by Nuance.
(Neither Eloquence nor RealSpeak has been upgraded in years.) Based on the
FSCast demonstration, they sound more pleasing and appear more responsive to
commands than RealSpeak. There may finally be a viable alternative to
Dectalk Express, which I have clung to through the years.

The demonstration of JAWS 14 and Windows 8 is also encouraging, and FS has
made a change to how JAWS handles Outlook messages that might finally
convince me to upgrade from 2003.

The improvements to Text Analyzer look as though they'll simplify the visual
aspects of editing documents.

Here's the link:
