Re: UEB Braille

Jean Menzies <jemenzies@...>
 

I don't know about earlier versions of Jaws, but using Jaws 15, you can set Jaws to translate in either English braille which is the normal old US braille, or change to UEB. This is under braille settings, advanced, General, Translation.

Dennis, I cannot speak to future features of JAWS and do not work for
Freedom Scientific. I just am a fellow user and member of this list.

But UEB stands for Unified English Braille. It is a new standard in
Braille production that is coming to North America, as per a ruling
made a couple of years ago by the Braille Authority of North America.
The UEB code is meant to accommodate literary, scientific,
mathematical, and computer notation--all in one system. You can read
about specifications for the new code at
http://www.brailleauthority.org/ueb.html, from where you can get a
book called "The ABCs Of UEB" by Constance Risjord. Sounds as if all
of us who are dedicated to using Braille will need to get onboard with
this in the next couple of years, as more and more publications become
transcribed in this format.

Kind regards,

-Kane

Re: windows 8.1, ie 11 and navigating between opened tabs issue update

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

I started adjusting some changes in internet options but along the way lost
track of what I was changing lol, so I decided to just reset IE back to it's
defaults, delete personal settings etc. Now, the keystrokes work, the next
question I need to answer for myself is what did I do in the first place to
cause it not to work, apparently it was one of these options as after it was
resetted, it now works.

I'm using windows 8.1, iee 11 and latest version for all the screen readers

ie 10 but not here for me using ie 11. Thoughts?

UEB stands for Unified English Braille and there will be some changes
to the braille code. Some contractions will no longer be used and
there will be a space between words like of, the, with... I don't
know exactly how JAWS and a braille display work together but I am
sure JAWS will use the new braille code when the time comes. I have a
Braillenote and I have it set to UEB now. I think people are very
worried about this but it really isn't that hard.

Subject: windows 8.1, ie 11 and navigating between opened tabs issue

This topic has come up recently on numerous lists.

It was mentioned in these lists that CTRL 1 through 8 will cycle through the
different tabs you have opened and CTRL 9 will take you to the last focused
tab.

I'm using windows 8.1, iee 11 and latest version for all the screen readers
and none of these work, so does it indeed work in IE 11. I hear it works in
ie 10 but not here for me using ie 11. Thoughts?

I believe updating can always be a challenge. I went from XP to
Windows 7 and am very comfortable using it. I think there will be
some challenges going from JAWS 12 to 15 but after you learn the new
commands you will be very happy. I have chosen to see what comes
after Windows 8 but many others have made the change and are very
happy. When we switch to UEB braille in 2016 you will need to upgrade
your Duxbury and it may not work with older JAWS.

up
to $200.

Re: Webvisum

Hi,

Yes that is the correct key stroke, one way to know if web visum is loaded
and working correctly is that when I use that key stroke jaws reads a
message saying something like either 'capture submitted' or 'no capture
found on this page' just thought that might help you find out if you have
web visum loaded, its working correctly and your presseing the right key
stroke

Hello all,
Could anyone please confirm the instructions for using Jaws and webvisum to
solve a captcha challenge? I have install webvisum, press alt, control, and
6 on the numbers row, but it is not working.
Cheers Kevin.

Re: first letter navigation behaviour with jaws

Aidan <aidan.smarttalk@...>
 

I doubt that key echo is the problem here. Yes I can use the say line
command but that is not really a solution. Maybe under key lables?

I suspect what is described is due to key echo settings, that typing
echo is set to either characters or characters and words. Without
changing that I doubt this behavior is going to change.

Subject: first letter navigation behaviour with jaws

Hi list, does any one no how I can make jaws speak the word in focus
and not both the letter and the object? For example: I want jaws to
behave like other screen readers where if you are on the desktop, and
you press the letter s, then it should say "Skype" instead of "s
Skype"
Is there a setting wich could allow that wich I might of mist?
