Determining Number of Remaining Keys

Dan Kerstetter <dhk55@...>
 

Hello all.



Is it possible to determine how many installations of JAWS I have remaining
without calling sales or tech support?



Thanks in advance.



Dan

Hi There.
Go to the Jaws 15 Icon on desktop, or where it located for you. Press enter, find options and click on it, and in there is the voice settings you are looking for.

Re: Chromevox and Kindles vs JAWS and iPads

John ESherrer
 

If your daughter can use an I phone, or it might be available for the I pad,
a Kindle reader that will read each book. When you go to town load the app,
get the disability version or the one with the largest file size. I hope
this helps.

Subject: Chromevox and Kindles vs JAWS and iPads

I could use some advice and feedback for the latest in screen reading
solutions. Our situation is that our daughter, 6th grade, no light
perception, a highly proficient Braille reader and Braillenote Apex user,
fairly handy with JAWS and iDevices may well end up in a situation at school
where all students are being issued Chromebooks and Kindles. This sends off
warning signals for me, but I'm not sure what to do about it...

The key focus of these devices seems to be centered around products and
services by Discovery Learning. I have a high level of appreciation for what
everyone from Discovery through the school system is trying to offer kids by
using these services. My daughter is a super bright student. I have no doubt
she can make use of some of these materials despite her lack of vision, but
what is the best approach for her?

My questions center on how best to access these materials. That's what I
hope I can learn from others here-

How well does Chromevox (the built-in screenreader on Chromebooks, as I
understand it) work at this point?

Have others here tried Chromevox with Discovery Education materials?

How about JAWS work with Discovery Learning? Any idea if she could access
the same materials with a laptop and JAWS effectively?

As to the Kindle, I understand there are accessibility issues on them, but
there is also some iPod app for Kindle. Any ideas about access, especially
to Discovery Learning materials through that app?

Apologies for the partially off-tropic post, but it is somewhat
JAWS-related, and we are really in a bind here time-wise. We have a meeting
to discuss some of this with her school in three days. I'd like any
information I can come up with on this matter (I have an inquiries in
already with Discovery & Google, but so far I've had no response.)

I'd REALLY like to be able to point the school in the right direction for a
working solution or clear knowledge of things that WON'T work as well... If
they need to get her a laptop, JAWS, and an iPad, they may well do it, but I
suspect what may happen in this meeting is that we learn they have NO IDEA
what will or won't work, or what steps to take next.. This needs not to drag
out by the week and month for her.

Feel free to contact me off-list if responses seem too far off the JAWS
portion of the question.

Many thanks to all!

global adjustment

I need to locate the global adjustment link in jaws. I remember in other
versions this setting being very accessable when a user went to jawd, but I
can't locate it in jaws 15. Thanks, Judith

Go to JAWS, then click on options. Tab through your choices. You would really benefit from taking the time to go through the various settings in this area.

Re: REmote Access

Soronel Haetir
 

The remote access option is an entirely client side issue, if you have
it the server side does not need a license at all. (You still need a
license on the server system if you also want to be able to use it
locally, but that is a different matter).

I have used different versions of Jaws on the client computer than the
server computer. I think the only requirement is the server machine
should be running the newer version.

I hope this helps.

Hello,

For the last couple months or so, when viewing an auction on eBay with less than 24 hours remaining, there is a countdown clock running on the web page and JAWS is announcing the time every second as the clock updates. Is there any way to stop this time announcement?

Re: Chrome ox and Kindles vs JAWS and iPads

Londa Peterson
 

Against my better judgment, I'm going to chime in here. First off, I have
been using Android and Talkback for a couple of years now, and I don't find
it any more difficult than IOS. I would not say that it is totally
inaccessible by any means. Where Google does fall down, however, is the lack
of really good Braille support. It is better than it used to be but still
has a long way to go. In my humble opinion, JAWS offers the best access to
Braille out of all the products I've used with the exception of the
specialized note takers. However, if you don't find a work-around, the
Chrome book may indeed be useable at least with speech. I'd recommend at
least giving it a try.

Thanks to all who have replied. Marianne, would you happen to have a link to
that particular letter from the OSEP? That sounds very specific and clear,
and might prove handy in an upcoming IEP later this week.

This situation is rather unusual, in that the school is actually anxious and
willing to help, but they have dug a bit of a hole by not having checked
about full accessibility, while actually moving towards this solution to
attempt to ACCOMMODATE more students, and they have just made this switch.
All we want is a workable solution. Letter of the law is a fine thing, but
we just want a reasonable solution, for now.

On the JAWS & Chromebook issue, I may not have been clear. I'm hoping to
learn how Discover Learning reacts with JAWS on a PC as opposed to Chromevox
on a Chromebook. I know that some web content just won't work with anything,
so it may be a source issue more than the choice of chromebook vs JAWS

I suspect they will happily grant us access to the system to test this all
out, but I'd LOVE to hear what others might have experienced with that
system, because I seriously doubt we can get the needed access to explore
this before the meeting takes place, and again, this is about solving
problems for my child right now before anything else of a broader nature.

Thanks!

I think your school is legally obligated to make an accessible

I think I can point you in the direction of someone who might
point out certain potentially applicable legal compulsions.

I know the i-devices work pretty well with the kindle app that you can
install. It might be worth looking into an i-pad with the kindle app and a
Braille display. It this is a good work around it might be possible to
convince the district to go with i-pads for all the students as it would
make it easier if everyone is working from the same platform.

Re: JFW pausing/freezing with IE 11?

Yeah, see, I used that hotkey because I didn't want all the extra stuff

JFW pausing/freezing with IE 11?

James Homuth
 

I upgraded to IE 11 this morning, largely because I got tired of being
nagged about this or that version of this or that browser being unsupported.
Some of the pages I haunt regularly have a ton of links attached to them.
I'm noticing, with this version of IE at least, especially if I use the
insert/end hotkey to read me the window title, JAWS will hang for a minute
before letting me go along with my day. This doesn't happen at all in IE 8.
I'm also noticing, possibly related to that problem, that JAWS can't
necessarily actually read the top of the IE window when I use that hotkey.
This happens with both JAWS 13 and 14. Has anyone else noticed issues like
this and found a workaround? That'd be awesome if so.

Wh3en in the podcast list highlight the podcast you want all episodes from
and hit the application key. Arrow down till you see get all podcasts and
hit it. This will download all available podcasts for that show.

Subject: Itunes 11 and Jaws 15 issue

When I'm downloading podcasts in Itunes 11, and I'm at the top of the
podcast page, control-F brings up a Jaws search. A few lines down, it brings
up a store search. I keep losing focus on the page, ending up far from where
I was, and control-f doesn't do a Jaws search so I can find my place again.
Any other way to do a Jaws search besides Control-F? I could put a place
marker somewhere, I suppose, but since I never know where I am going to lose
my place, I'm not sure where to put one. Also, I cannot seem to find a
button or link that would allow me to download all episodes of a podcast
once subscribed. Is it in a setting I don't know about, or is there no such
option or button?
Besides these two very annoying issues, Jaws 15 and Itunes 11 seem to play
nicely with each other.

For all online searches, I use JAWS key+control+f. I don't know if it will give you a more stable experience in this instance, but it's worth a try.

Re: Chromevox and Kindles vs JAWS and iPads

I am a teacher of students who are visually impaired. The Office of
Special Education (OSEP) has issued a letter that no school district
is to provide materials in an electronic format that is not accessible
to all students. It does not matter whether there is a student in the
school who needs accessibility or not. Unfortunately, the school
districts are not getting the message. You certainly have a way to
fight this decision. Even if the school provides an alternative to
your daughter, she will not receive all of the information her sighted
peers receive. You can accept a work around or you can fight the
district on this issue. Many of us adults are used to making things
work but that is not always a good solution.

I've tried to use Chromevox on the PC with Google Docs and Google
Chrome. It stinks!
There is, nevertheless, some hope.
I have a Nexus Android device (came free with our Google Fiber
subscription). It has a built-in screen reader called talk back.
It is awkward, clunky, and hard to use, but it can be managed.
I would be surprised if a Google device isn't built on the android
operating system. So, Talkback should work.
Even if not, there is a company from Spain called Code Factory.
It used to make a screen reader (and a very good one) for Windows
phones (back when Microsoft thought it had to impose Windows on
mobile devices). When Microsoft dumped that operating system,
Code Factory turned to making Android devices talk. I've heard
demonstrations of the product (though not lately), and it is very
good; however, I don't know how long it can exist when Google
offers Talkback for free, even though Talkback is an inferior
product.
I think your school is legally obligated to make an accessible
option available to your daughter. If the school system refuses,
I think I can point you in the direction of someone who might
point out certain potentially applicable legal compulsions.

I could use some advice and feedback for the latest in screen
reading solutions. Our situation is that our daughter, 6th grade,
no light perception, a highly proficient Braille reader and
Braillenote Apex user, fairly handy with JAWS and iDevices may
well end up in a situation at school where all students are being
issued Chromebooks and Kindles. This sends off warning signals for
me, but I'm not sure what to do about it...

The key focus of these devices seems to be centered around
products and services by Discovery Learning. I have a high level
of appreciation for what everyone from Discovery through the
school system is trying to offer kids by using these services. My
daughter is a super bright student. I have no doubt she can make
use of some of these materials despite her lack of vision, but
what is the best approach for her?

My questions center on how best to access these materials. That's
what I hope I can learn from others here-

How well does Chromevox (the built-in screenreader on Chromebooks,
as I understand it) work at this point?

Have others here tried Chromevox with Discovery Education
materials?

How about JAWS work with Discovery Learning? Any idea if she could
access the same materials with a laptop and JAWS effectively?

As to the Kindle, I understand there are accessibility issues on
them, but there is also some iPod app for Kindle. Any ideas about
access, especially to Discovery Learning materials through that
app?

Apologies for the partially off-tropic post, but it is somewhat
JAWS-related, and we are really in a bind here time-wise. We have
a meeting to discuss some of this with her school in three days.
I'd like any information I can come up with on this matter (I have
an inquiries in already with Discovery & Google, but so far I've
had no response.)

I'd REALLY like to be able to point the school in the right
direction for a working solution or clear knowledge of things that
WON'T work as well... If they need to get her a laptop, JAWS, and
an iPad, they may well do it, but I suspect what may happen in
this meeting is that we learn they have NO IDEA what will or won't
work, or what steps to take next.. This needs not to drag out by
the week and month for her.

Feel free to contact me off-list if responses seem too far off the
JAWS portion of the question.

Many thanks to all!
