Hi, Marianne. I am also using Eset NOD32 antivirus. If you need a direct link to them to look at cost for just the antivirus versus Smart Security, here it is below.

Are you using the latest version of AVG, which I believe is AVG 2014? The reason I'm asking is that I'm considering AVG as a replacement for MSE, but some users have reported that it is not very JAWS accessible.

Re: euros trademark and other symbols keep appearing in text!

Russell Solowoniuk
 

Hi Marion,

Is it possible that you accidentally changed the keyboard language? There is a keystroke to change keyboard language… it’s either CTRL + Shift or the left Alt + Shift. Try pressing either keystroke and see what happens.

No, this wasn't a notetaker. It was a USB keyboard-- just the keyboard interface for a computer, but it was setup like a Braille keyboard only-- no qwerty functions.

The problem is more complicated than it may seem at first. There is a
problem (prat least a potential limit) referred to as "n-key rollover". When
you exceed the key limit, which varies from one keyboard to the next,
unpredictable things may happen. The computer may no longer see the first
keys pressed, with only the last particular (keyboard specific number of)
keys recognized. I have read the limit can be as low as three. (You don’t
typically chord keys at the EXACT same time, there are tiny differences in
when the contacts are made.)

The result is that only the last 3 (or 4, etc.) keys down will be seen. And
there is a second problem called “ghosting” (nothing to do with ghosting
braille on a Perkins). On some keyboards, extra “ghosted” keystrokes appear
to the computer depending on the physical position of the keys you actually
push— it has to do with the wiring matrix of the keyboard. These are extra
keys you didn’t actually push.

As to why this is an issue? Partly cost, but also lack of planning for
unusual applications of the hardware. It costs more to design keyboards that
can handle more keys at once, and the need is rare for qwerty typists. You
may see a need like ctrl + alt + delete often, but usually no more than
three keys are needed at once. The common exceptions are Braille
(obviously), musical applications (like playing a musical instrument, for
example, without a conventional MIDI trigger instrument available), and
certain types of computer gaming.

So the short answer is, even if you have software to solve your problem,
your hardware setup may or may not accept the physical input from the
keyboard. This will vary from one keyboard to the next, and so forth.
Try-before-you-buy, if possible.

I did see a braille-style USB keyboard a while back— not like a Focus 40 (or
such) with a built-in display. It was just a straight row of keys to use
like on a braille notetaker but without a display. This setup had no n-key
rollover issue, but I’ll be darned if I can find it now with a web search.
If I run across it, I will post.

Good luck!

Re: Itunes question.

Kimber Gardner
 

Justin,

Despite the different look of iTunes, you sync playlists in much the
same way you always did.

First plug your phone into the computer and bring up iTunes.

In the sources treeview move to devices. Tab over to the buttons that
determine which type of content you want to sync and check music. Once
you've done that continue tabbing and listen to the announcements of
the checkboxes and their status. You want to sync only checked songs
and playlists.

Once you've checked that box, continue tabbing until you reach a list
of songs/playlists you can check or uncheck. Move through the list
checking whichever playlists you want to sync then tab to the sync
button and activate it.

I hope this helps.

Re: shortcut keys to launch programs

Tom macha <toml614@...>
 

How do you do shortcut keys with windows eight?


Sent from Windows Mail



From: Nicol
Sent: ‎Friday‎, ‎April‎ ‎11‎, ‎2014 ‎3‎:‎19‎ ‎PM
To: Jfw@...


Hi all
I want to share something with you that I think will help a lot.
I know the basics of creating simple jaws scripts.
And I have thought of a wonderful idea.
IN windows it is possible to tie a shortcut key to a program to launch the
program instantly.
You locate the shortcut either in the programs menu or on the desktop.
Then you either right click and choose properties or press alt enter.
Then you move with tab to the field where you can press a letter.
Then you press the letter without alt and control.
Then you tab to ok and hit space or enter.
To launch the program you press that letter together with the alt and
control keys.
Now here is the idea I want to share.
Lets say you have a lot of programs tied to shortcut keys and you cannot
remember each one's keystroke.
Instead of just pressing any alt control letter combination to get the
program you are looking for and in the process exit unwanted applications,
here is a neat idea.
You will use keyboard help mode to find out which keystroke is tied to which
program's shortcut.
In this example I have tied alt plus control plus o to launch microsoft
word.
So I am going to create a script so that jaws will tell me which program is
tied to alt plus control plus o .
I'm going to cover the basics of creating a script.
In this example I have tied control plus alt plus o to Microsoft word.
In other words, if I press control plus alt plus o, microsoft word will be
launched.
Step1: press insert plus f2.
step2.. press s until you get to script manager and hit enter.
Step3 now you are inside the script manager.
Step 4. for this script its best to use the default file. So press control
plus shift plus d.
Step5 go to the bottom of the file with control plus end.
Step6 press control plus e.
You are in the dialogue box to start creating a script.
Step7 Your cursor Is on the field for the script name. in this case the name
will be the name of the program tied to a specific alt control letter
combination.
In this example I simply type winword as the script name..
You can use anything for a name.
The name is not the actual description of what the jaws script does.
Its basically just a name for the script.
The name cannot contain spaces.
Step8 Press tab once and press space to tick this checkbox.
Step9 Press tab once.
Here is the most important part of the script.
Type a short description.
In this case The description should tell you what program you are launching.
In this example I will type :
This keystroke will Launch microsoft word.
The next field is where you can type a longer description but in this case
a longer description is not necessary.
You only need jaws to tell you which program is launched with the
particular alt control letter combination.
Step10Now press alt plus A.
It's a shortcut that will move you to the place where you will press the
jaws script's keystroke instead of pressing tab until you get to the
place for the jaws script's keystroke.
Now press the keystroke that you have tied to the particular program.
In this example I have tied microsoft word to control alt o.
Now the difference here in the dialogue box to create a new jaws script:
Here you have to press the entire keystroke combination.
You have to hold down alt and control and press the particular letter.
This differs from the dialogue box where you tied a keystroke to a
particular program.
There you only pressed the letter without alt and control.
But here in the dialogue box to create a jaws script, you have to hold down
alt and control and press the letter.
Now press enter.
Enter will activate the ok button.
Now you are in the script file where you actually type the source code of
the script.
In this script you only need one line of code:
TypeCurrentScriptKey ()
This line of code will tell jaws to pass the keystroke on to windows so
that the particular program will be launched.
In this example microsoft word.
Step11 The easiest way to insert the above line of code is to press
control plus I.
This is a dialogue box with all the functions that can be used in jaws
scripts.
Press tab once.
You are in the list box containing all the functions.
You can use first letter navigation here. So just press the t and the y
keys.
The cursor will be on the function that says type current script key.
Press enter and the function will be inserted.
Step12 Press control plus s to compile the script.
When the script is compiled, it is converted into binary code also known as
machine language.
You should hear jaws saying: compile complete.
If you have made a typing mistake jaws will inform you of the type of error.
But in this simple script, you select the type current key function from the
list of functions so the script should compile without errors.
Now press alt f4 to exit the script manager.
Lets say you forgot which program you tied to which keystroke for example
alt plus control plus o.
This is what you do.
Hold down the insert key and press the 1 key above the q key.
You will hear jaws say: keyboard help on.
Any key tied to a jaws script will have a description.
So if I now press control plus alt plus o in this example I will hear the
description that I have added to the script.
In this example I will hear jaws saying:
Control plus alt plus o: this keystroke will launch microsoft word.
If a script have a longer description assigned to it, pressing the
script's keystroke twice quickly within keyboard help mode jaws will read
to you the longer description.
For example, if you press control plus c twice quickly within keyboard help
mode, jaws will read to you the longer description for control c.
In this example, I haven't added a long description to the alt control o
keystroke, so if I press control plus alt plus o twice quickly within
keyboard help mode, I will hear nothing.
If no jaws script is assigned to a keystroke, you will only hear the
keystroke that you have pressed; no description.
Lets say you have tied control plus alt plus x to microsoft excel's
shortcut but you haven't created a jaws script for control plus alt plus
x, if you press alt control x in keyboard help mode, you will not hear any
description, just the keystroke
To go out of keyboard help mode you again hold down the insert key and
press the 1 key above the q key.
You will hear jaws say: keyboard help off.
So, I am sure this will help you.
Each time you tied a keystroke to a program to launch it, remember to go
into script manager right after that and follow the steps above to create a
jaws script so that you can hear which program you tied to which key by
using keyboard help mode.
I have jaws Version 13.0.1006 and I have windows 7.

Doesn't Duxbury allow that?
It's been a long long time since I've used it.

Subject: Braille keyboard question. e

Hello to all list members:



I am a long-time braille reader and a proficient braille writer since grade
school.



As an alternative to the BrailleNote and the other note takers, which I
cannot afford to purchase right now, as a long-time braille writer, is there
a braille keyboard that I can purchase and connect to a laptop, using JAWS
and a braille translation program like Duxbury that I can use as an
alternative to the higher dollar braille note taking devices?

I know that I could buy a portable braille display which I believe has a
built-in keyboard, but again this would no doubt cost a couple of thousand
dollars.



On the other hand, is there a program that can convert specific keys on a
regular keyboard to the configuration of a braille keyboard which I could
connect to a laptop, for note taking?



I would appreciate any and all input.



Best regards,



Justin

I'm not sure about this one. I'm not experienced in downloading pic's to
smart phones. If someone on the list can't give you some kind of answer.
Then I would suggest contacting FS tech service. Here is the FS number if
you don't already have it.

727.803.8600 then press 2 for software tech support. Best of luck.

Just an fyi. The error that

Is from JAWS 13 not fully supporting ie11.

The fix is to upgrade to JAWS 15 or replace ie11 with ie10.
Just an fyi. Hope it helps someone.

Hi, I would like to know if any of you have tips for Outlook 2013 on Windows 8.1. I looked at the keyboard shortcut that is found at Microsofts site, but would like some tips if you would like to share them. Thanks

Re: shortcut keys to launch programs

Nicole Massey <nyyki@...>
 

One thing to do first -- once you've created a shortcut key in Windows,
press it to make sure it's bringing up the right program. Some applications
already have shortcut keys assigned, (like, for example, one of the Nero
programs has Ctrl+Alt+J, which is a popular keyboard shortcut for jaws) so
you want to be sure your computer is bringing up the right thing before you
set up the script.

Subject: shortcut keys to launch programs

Hi all
I want to share something with you that I think will help a lot.
I know the basics of creating simple jaws scripts.
And I have thought of a wonderful idea.
IN windows it is possible to tie a shortcut key to a program to launch
the program instantly.
You locate the shortcut either in the programs menu or on the desktop.
Then you either right click and choose properties or press alt enter.
Then you move with tab to the field where you can press a letter.
Then you press the letter without alt and control.
Then you tab to ok and hit space or enter.
To launch the program you press that letter together with the alt and
control keys.
Now here is the idea I want to share.
Lets say you have a lot of programs tied to shortcut keys and you
cannot remember each one's keystroke.
Instead of just pressing any alt control letter combination to get the
program you are looking for and in the process exit unwanted
applications, here is a neat idea.
You will use keyboard help mode to find out which keystroke is tied to
which program's shortcut.
In this example I have tied alt plus control plus o to launch
microsoft word.
So I am going to create a script so that jaws will tell me which
program is tied to alt plus control plus o .
I'm going to cover the basics of creating a script.
In this example I have tied control plus alt plus o to Microsoft word.
In other words, if I press control plus alt plus o, microsoft word will
be launched.
Step1: press insert plus f2.
step2.. press s until you get to script manager and hit enter.
Step3 now you are inside the script manager.
Step 4. for this script its best to use the default file. So press
control plus shift plus d.
Step5 go to the bottom of the file with control plus end.
Step6 press control plus e.
You are in the dialogue box to start creating a script.
Step7 Your cursor Is on the field for the script name. in this case the
name will be the name of the program tied to a specific alt control
letter combination.
In this example I simply type winword as the script name..
You can use anything for a name.
The name is not the actual description of what the jaws script does.
Its basically just a name for the script.
The name cannot contain spaces.
Step8 Press tab once and press space to tick this checkbox.
Step9 Press tab once.
Here is the most important part of the script.
Type a short description.
In this case The description should tell you what program you are
launching.
In this example I will type :
This keystroke will Launch microsoft word.
The next field is where you can type a longer description but in this
case a longer description is not necessary.
You only need jaws to tell you which program is launched with the
particular alt control letter combination.
Step10Now press alt plus A.
It's a shortcut that will move you to the place where you will press
the jaws script's keystroke instead of pressing tab until you get to
the place for the jaws script's keystroke.
Now press the keystroke that you have tied to the particular program.
In this example I have tied microsoft word to control alt o.
Now the difference here in the dialogue box to create a new jaws
script:
Here you have to press the entire keystroke combination.
You have to hold down alt and control and press the particular letter.
This differs from the dialogue box where you tied a keystroke to a
particular program.
There you only pressed the letter without alt and control.
But here in the dialogue box to create a jaws script, you have to hold
down alt and control and press the letter.
Now press enter.
Enter will activate the ok button.
Now you are in the script file where you actually type the source code
of the script.
In this script you only need one line of code:
TypeCurrentScriptKey ()
This line of code will tell jaws to pass the keystroke on to windows
so that the particular program will be launched.
In this example microsoft word.
Step11 The easiest way to insert the above line of code is to press
control plus I.
This is a dialogue box with all the functions that can be used in jaws
scripts.
Press tab once.
You are in the list box containing all the functions.
You can use first letter navigation here. So just press the t and the y
keys.
The cursor will be on the function that says type current script key.
Press enter and the function will be inserted.
Step12 Press control plus s to compile the script.
When the script is compiled, it is converted into binary code also
known as machine language.
You should hear jaws saying: compile complete.
If you have made a typing mistake jaws will inform you of the type of
error.
But in this simple script, you select the type current key function
from the list of functions so the script should compile without errors.
Now press alt f4 to exit the script manager.
Lets say you forgot which program you tied to which keystroke for
example alt plus control plus o.
This is what you do.
Hold down the insert key and press the 1 key above the q key.
You will hear jaws say: keyboard help on.
Any key tied to a jaws script will have a description.
So if I now press control plus alt plus o in this example I will hear
the description that I have added to the script.
In this example I will hear jaws saying:
Control plus alt plus o: this keystroke will launch microsoft word.
If a script have a longer description assigned to it, pressing the
script's keystroke twice quickly within keyboard help mode jaws will
read to you the longer description.
For example, if you press control plus c twice quickly within keyboard
help mode, jaws will read to you the longer description for control c.
In this example, I haven't added a long description to the alt control
o keystroke, so if I press control plus alt plus o twice quickly within
keyboard help mode, I will hear nothing.
If no jaws script is assigned to a keystroke, you will only hear the
keystroke that you have pressed; no description.
Lets say you have tied control plus alt plus x to microsoft excel's
shortcut but you haven't created a jaws script for control plus alt
plus x, if you press alt control x in keyboard help mode, you will not
hear any description, just the keystroke To go out of keyboard help
mode you again hold down the insert key and press the 1 key above the
q key.
You will hear jaws say: keyboard help off.
So, I am sure this will help you.
Each time you tied a keystroke to a program to launch it, remember to
go into script manager right after that and follow the steps above to
create a jaws script so that you can hear which program you tied to
which key by using keyboard help mode.
I have jaws Version 13.0.1006 and I have windows 7.

Re: Braille keyboard question. e

I just did a google search and did find a program that converts your
standard keyboard so that you can use it like a Braille keyboard. I'm sorry
but can't remember exactely what it's called but you can do a search and it
should come right up.
