Re: Unicode Characters

Soronel Haetir
 

There is a way to add Unicode characters to what jaws can speak when
you move character by character. It is also possible to add dictionary
entries for words containing such characters that you synthesizer
doesn't normally handle. However it is not really possible to provide
an automatic pronunciation guide for such characters so that words
containing them "just work".

Re: Headset needed for call center work

Hi,

I work in a call centre myself, I use just a phone head set that only has
one ear piece and then just use a standard set of ear phones/buds and
listen to jaws in the other ear through those

Hi Luis,

I don't have any personal experience with the headsets information below
but, the last 1 might be your best bet.

This headset allows you to listen to both your computer and the telephone at
the same time.

Name, Dual Head Sets by Plantronics.
Model or part number SMH1783-11. Price $350.00 to $400.00.

Name of distributor, Phone supplements
Phone, 1-800-742-1800


I've used Plantronics for years. The newer models unplug part way down the
cord so you can switch out the end you need. I have an eighth inch plug on 1
side and a phone plug on the other. I believe the model line you are needing
is the Supra. Don't let someone talk you into a stereo set, it won't work.

Here is the contact info for a company called Headsets Direct. That's where
I got my last set from.

Keep in mind everyone doesn't understand what we need with a different cord
for each ear. I know the best person you will talk to there is Ed, in tech
support. Everyone is friendly, and I've never spoken with anyone that didn't
speak English clearly...

Hello Jim, I agree with others on this list that Plantronics equipment is
the way to go. For some reason buying from vendors is cheaper than buying
from Plantronics direct. SKC Communication Products Inc.

800 882 7779

SMH1783-11 headset special, price around $240.00I think

Also get the optional AC adapter 26503-01

If they ask who told you, Art from Pittsburgh.

Good luck.

Hello Mark,

Here is what you are looking for, I used these for many years earning a
living.
They are called "Dual Headsets".
One ear goes to your telephone, which has a small special box in-between
your telephone and the headphone jack, which allows you to control tone,
volume, mute and such, while the other ear goes directly to your computer
where you can hear your JAWS.

In every company I worked for, Humana Health Plans, The Miami-Herald
Newspaper, American Bankers, this is the Brand name of the Head Sets their
Customer Service Intake people used, the only difference being I used a
"Dual Channel" set, while the sighted folks used one channel sets.

The headset has a boom mike, it looks about like a coffee stirrer which you
speak into.

They are made of the highest quality material, very durable, yet very
comfortable, adjustable, they will send you parts, like the ear foam
cushions that get old after a year or so, immediately with a single
telephone call to their parts department.

Well, they are the top of the line.
And the price expresses that also.

Re: Using Express Scribe with JAWS

Gary King
 

I suspect the separate volume adjustment would work better under Windows 7 and probably 8. In another message, you mentioned that you are using Windows XP. Separate volume adjustment is not usually possible with XP unless the program supports some special type of Direct Sound output such as in Winamp.

Re: Using Express Scribe with JAWS

I've already assigned hotkeys to the volume controls, but when I raise and
lower the volume, the JAWS volume goes up or down as well. I suppose if I
have to I'll type without being able to hear what I'm typing. It will be an
interesting experiment, considering I took dictation for 25 years and got
used to hearing each word as I typed it.

Express Scribe works well with Jaws, and you can adjust the volume
separately by using the hot keys. Go into Settings, and I think under
Playback, you can enable hot keys. Then you can assign the functions in the
combo list to various function keys in place of the defaults. E.g., I have
volume up as F4, and volume down as F5.

If you still have trouble, I'll try and write out specific instructions.

That's not the half of it. Express Scribe is the software this particular

If they would hire me, I need to buy Start Stop power play which is another

I do transcription work too and used to run into that problem. I don't know

I currently don't have a way to adjust the volume levels of the dictation
software player independently of the volume of JAWS on the system. I do
have a separate equalizer with ear buds that are "noise reducing" and the
sound quality is a little better, but it's painful when the volume level of
the dictation is so low that the only way to hear what's being said is to
turn up the volume on the system, which makes JAWS yell at me. I transcribe
with the typing echo off, but have to adjust the volume to proofread my
work. Different players have different controls. Hopefully, someone with
more expertise can help us both out.

Re: Jaws and windows 8

Russell Solowoniuk
 

Hi,

I used Windows 7 and work, and had Windows 7 on my laptop. In December I upgraded my laptop to Windows 8, and, while it's quite different, I find it very accessible. The more I use Windows 8 the more I like it. It seems to run even snappier on my laptop than Windows 7 did, and Windows 7 ran quite well. My laptop is around 7 years old, so, I was sort of hesitant to install Windows 8 on it, but am very pleased with the performance. As you mentioned, your dad will need Jaws 14 to run Windows 8.

I wish your dad the best of luck! It's so awesome that he's willing to learn new skills!

bought a HP with windows 8 and had the"type to learn" program downloaded. He
has spent the past 6 months learning the keyboard and has done well...Now he
want's to get started and purchase JAWS. but he is finding out by talking
to other JAWS users that Windows 8 is not very compatible with JAWS soooo
he is not sure what to do at this point. IS JAWS 14 going to work with
Windows 8...especially for someone that is computer illiterate? Keep in
mind he has no idea how Windows 7 is different from windows 8 to begin with.
Should he get a laptop that already works well with windows 7 thats seems to
get better reviews with JAWS users ? All he keeps hearing isWindows 8 and
JAWS 14 have so many problems. He is really motivated to move forward with
this and I hate to see him lose his interest when he has come so far with
learning the keyboard. Any suggestions or comments would be veryhelpful.

Re: Opinions on resale price of JAWS

Angel
 

That is a most interesting question. Considering all Jaws does, and considering its compatibility with all the various languages it supports. Also., as most businesses and universities use Jaws as their screen reader of choice, should employment be gotten from such, there would be much less to learn. As familiarity with the most likely screen reader used by the place of employment would already be in place. I find it by far to be the best choice for the money, and is well worth the investment.

Use the left mouse button key (numpad *) and click on any of the
non-functional text in the window and then switch back to PC cursor
mode.

Bill,

I've seen this before and the problem turned out to be that the tag
window was not gaining focus, if I used the jaws cursor I was able to
find it and set focus to it and proceed from there.

Does this happen only when you try to open a PDF attachment? In that
case,

the solution for me is to save the file to my system and start over,
usually by performing OCR on it.

Subject: Adobe Reader XI with JAWS

Hello. I am using Adobe Reader XI with JAWS. I am having an unusual
problem. The first time I open a document, It tells me the standard
message about reading an untagged document, and that my screen reader
will

be unable to interact with this application.


After closing the document, I am unable to open it again. The only
message

I get if I click on the document is:
Alert, Document being Processed.

However, If I start Adobe Reader, and use Control plus O to open the
file,

it will open again with the standard message about the untagged
document
being prepared and so forth.

Does anyone know why the document will not open after the first time by
clicking on the file?

Thank you.

Opinions on resale price of JAWS

Dave Mitchell
 

Greetings: The current price for the basic JAWS product is $895.
Excluding the $75 transfer fee for a copy of JAWS with valid SMA in force, what would be the fair market price on the resale market in your opinion?
Thanks and just curious, Mitch
