I will be nosy here. Why can't you use nemeth code? It is not as
hard to learn as the braille code. If you have issues with feeling
the braille that is one thing but if you are afraid you can't learn
nemeth code, it is so much better than any computer program, or makes
it much easier to do math.

Do you have a math tutor? What level of math, high school algebra 1,
algebra 2 or college algebra?

I am a teacher of students who are visually impaired so I want to make
the best recommendation possible. You can email me off list so people
who aren't interested don't get all of this mail.

The web site he was talking about is
http://www.viewplus.com/products/software/math/
and looks quite interesting.

Here are a few facts about the graphing calculator:
"Audio Graphing Calculator (AGC)
Get the Audio Graphing Calculator
The AGC provides the functionality of handheld scientific calculators
commonly used in the classroom. Operating on a flexible Windows platform and
augmented with audio and tactile feedback, the AGC provides an alternative
for people who cannot effectively use a handheld calculator, or those
seeking a more interactive interface.

The AGC is accessible to anyone who can use a computer, regardless of
ability, allowing the user to concentrate on math, not on learning the tools
to access it.

Universal- use features include:
•Describing of graph shape through audio tones and cues •Speaking menus
•Scalable visual display •Keyboard navigation •Tactile output options

New Features for AGC include:
•Advanced matrix functions
•More powerful expression evaluator
•Ability to locate polar coordinates
•Display multiple graphs and find intersections •Faster computation time
•More statistical functions"

Hope this helps.

Bob

Hello,

Try the following web site. On the site there is a program called Audio
Graphic Calculator (AGC). Also a demo of AGC.

Viewplus.com

If you are in need of a talking calculator the Orion TI 36 by Texas
Instruments would be the one to purchase. Or you can use the scientific
calculator on your computer.

Hope this is of help to you.

I remember that thing. I remember that some of my elementary classmates and I found a way to make it say "overflow". We thought it was so funny! I got my own, and it got me through jr high and high school and even the one math class I had to take in college. It wasn't quite up to some of the stuff in college though. Keeping this somewhat on topic if that's possible, it's probably the first electronic voice I ever used. Good preparation for JAWS use.

Re: excel

Charles Coe
 

Hello,

To find a list of excel functions just google it.

In the edit field type: list of excel functions


Also when in excel under the formulas tab there is a function library which
will give you a list of functions.

Hit Alt H and then arrow over to the formulas tab.
Then down arrow to function library.

Try this as a troubleshooting trick. In another cell, type a direct

data in B2 then type into this other cell =B2 and hit enter. Now go back to
that cell, and if the value is there, it's something else. However, if the
value in that cell is =B2 then hold down your control key and hit the grave
key to the left of the one, because you've gotten yourself into formula view
mode. This should switch you back.
Another possible problem is the type of data the cell expects. Hold down the
control key and press 1. This should get you into the cell format window.
Make sure you're on the cell type page and select Number and the number of
decimal places you want. (Probably 0) You can hit enter in any part of this
screen to return to your worksheet.

I have started using Google Drive in the last week. I have used it to
create a form that requires responses. Some of the Google hot keys are
pretty good. Others not so much. For my purposes, I managed to get it to
work. It did take me some time, and I've been using JAWS for 18 years. I

download the Google Drive to my hard drive. IE 11 may not be your best bet

Re: excel

Make sure all the numerals in the columns are in fact in number format. If
50 has somehow been entered but is put in as text, it will not be counted in
a formula. Not sure if the COUNTIF function will accept text versions of

As mentioned by others, the countif command is yourfriend in this. The
format is =COUNTIF(first cell in the range:last cell in the range, value you
want to count)
The value can be a number, text in quotes, or the contents of another cell.
Note that if you try to count in adjacent columns you can count them all in
one operation by setting the value after the colon to the last cell in the
second column. (or third, forth, etc.)

Is there a tutorial or something that goes over all of the various formulas
for Excel? I need to refresh my memory on this stuff. I'm working on using
a tracking system, and wanted to use a spreadsheet to do most of it for me.

The web site he was talking about is

and looks quite interesting.

Here are a few facts about the graphing calculator:
"Audio Graphing Calculator (AGC)
Get the Audio Graphing Calculator
The AGC provides the functionality of handheld scientific calculators commonly used in the classroom. Operating on a flexible Windows platform and augmented with audio and tactile feedback, the AGC provides an alternative for people who cannot effectively use a handheld calculator, or those seeking a more interactive interface.

The AGC is accessible to anyone who can use a computer, regardless of ability, allowing the user to concentrate on math, not on learning the tools to access it.

Universal- use features include:
•Describing of graph shape through audio tones and cues •Speaking menus •Scalable visual display •Keyboard navigation •Tactile output options

New Features for AGC include:
•Advanced matrix functions
•More powerful expression evaluator
•Ability to locate polar coordinates
•Display multiple graphs and find intersections •Faster computation time •More statistical functions"

Hope this helps.

Try the following web site. On the site there is a program called Audio Graphic Calculator (AGC). Also a demo of AGC.

If you are in need of a talking calculator the Orion TI 36 by Texas

Re: Acronis

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

After posting this, I decided to try playing around with JAWS' OCR feature,
which I had never tried before. And although all the Freedom Scientific
documentation seems to imply this feature is for PDF documents, nonetheless
I was able to use it to read the Acronis controls. So I have a solution at
this point. But any other info from people who have used JAWS with Acronis
would be appreciated anyway. Thanks.

Acronis

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Has anyone had any luck using Acronis with JAWS? I have Acronis True Image
Home 2013, and can't seem to get JAWS 15 to read anything other than the
title bar.

I did a web search and found some discussion in the jaws-UK mailing list
that seemed to indicate that Acronis was usable with the help of the JAWS
cursor, but so far I've been unable to get the JAWS cursor to read anything
from the Acronis window.

I'm just about ready to install Window Eyes or NVDA and see if I have
better luck with that. I might also try contacting Freedom Scientific tech
support and see if they can help.

Thanks for any info.

Re: how to enter Forms mode with Jaws15?

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Hi Marion -- Maybe this link will help. It's the Freedom Scientific page
for using forms:
http://www.freedomscientific.com/training/surfs-up/Forms.htm
It's easy to find with Google if you ever need it again.

My strategy is usually to hit the F of shift+F key until I get to the form
control I want, then hit enter to go into forms mode. Tab away from the
control or turn on the virtual PC cursor to leave forms mode.

The main problems I've ran into are Google web pages, like GMail or Google
Calendar. They use forms, but they don't always behave well with JAWS.
Sometimes I have to hit enter twice, or tab away then shift+tab back to the
control and hit enter again. Sometimes I have to route the jaws cursor to
the virtual PC cursor and do the left-mouse-click keystroke, then hit
Enter. In other words, it's not an exact science. Ha ha.

Good luck.

Marion,

The method hasn't changed since JAWS 14. From which version were you upgrading?

If forms mode seems different, check your forms mode settings in the JAWS quick settings menu, JAWS key+v. I just checked. If you type "forms" into the search field that appears when you open quick settings, you can arrow down through several results and make appropriate changes.
