Re: a blind musician requesting help from other blind brothers and sisters who love to sing and play

Hi, You might want to look in to Sound Forge. I use Sonar with the Cake
talking scripts for my home based studio, and have been using it for years
with Jaws. You can go to http://www.cdbaby.com/jamesmalone to listen to
tracks that were recorded through Sonar. There is one other person that I
know of that also records using Sonar, and she knows who I'm referring to.
She's on this list, and is very good.

Subject: Re: a blind musician requesting help from other blind brothers

I've got more questions than answers. I've been singing with a jazz pianist
for 5 years and he isn't tech savy with music. I paid to get some studio
recordings done with him and have a demo CD. A lot of people have home
studios. I found one by doing a google search. The rate wasn't bad and
that included the editing. We did run over on time and that was more money
but not too much. I am looking for someone to add the tracks on the demo CD
to the 2 songs I have on soundcloud that I made with my digital recorder, an
olympus digital recorder with voice guidance. I had a friend who uploaded
them but he is being a pain in the butt right now and I don't even want to
ask him for help. I am finding out that I am "old fashioned" compared to
other singers, preferring to stick to the old jazz standards with just voice
and piano. I hope to work with a guitar player I know soon.I don't have a
newer computer because the one I use is provided through the company I work
for and has administrative settings that wil not allow me to update IE or
media player. I have issues using firefox on soundcloud. So, my only
suggestion is to find a sighted person in the short term but look for other
more tech savvy blind musicians as you are doing. There may be a group on
facebook.

Brian Varner
(search for Brian Varner and Mike Benjamin on soundcloud to hear the tunes I
recorded with the digital recorder)

my heart out.

Subject: a blind musician requesting help from other blind brothers
andsisters who love to sing and play

I have been singing gospel and other popular standards in
churches, rest homes, and other small groups for over twenty years.
In the early days, preparing a customized mix for each small group was
easy. Put the cd in the player, put a tape in, and press record. Or I
would put two tapes in a radio, press record and play, and seemlessly
make my mix.
Now, (at least from my point of view), making a mix isn't easy. I
have discovered a program called Cdex, which, when I run it, converts
me files to mp 3's. But where the problem arises is how I can best get
those mp-3 files onto a cd with the fewest and easiest keyboard
commands. The ripping program is mouse-oriented, and can be done by a
sighted person. But what if you want to copy an mp-3 file onto a cd?
And how can that file then be converted into a formatt that can be
played on a standard cd player? For the sake of this I am coining a
phrase radio-ready. How do I convert an mp-3 audio file down-loaded
from the internet onto a cd, with as few steps as possible,
seemlessly, onto a cd and convert it to a radio-ready formatt using
the key-board, by myself? Similarly, how do you convert songs from cd
to cd, also in as few steps as possible? Are there recording machines
that duplicate from cd to cd, so I can maybe avoid the computer?
Please, please respond to this question. It is very urgent. If you are
a musician who struggle with these issues and can share your stories,
please post to the list. If you are a musician who has answer to share
with your questioning brothers and sisters, please post. I sent out a
message earlier this week about Real Player cloud that generated
absolutely no response, and this issue with my music ministry and
accompaniment tracks is even more important. Thank you ahead of time.

Kindest regards,

Ryan Coverdell



P.S. If this list is not the best place to post your questions
please tell me that as well. Also, if you are a person with answers,
could you provide your phone number and the time you would be
available so I could maybe talk to you about these things? Again,
thank you for your response. I look forward to starting a lively
discussion among list members who have had a variety of experiences.

Re: program to backup outlook express.

Mike, can I have it too? I'm thinking of trying the Outlook Express for 7+. unfortunately never looked into backing up emails, and since directions are included...

btw, in order to install OE, I'd have to remove VIPRE not just disable the protection, right? and what about Eset Smart Security? I would want to install OE on my other computer that has Eset SS.
and when it comes to installing OE, I'd choose "run as administrator" even though I am the admin, right?
could you remind me of how to pay the 10 dollars? if it's thru PayPal, can my friend use his account to pay for me?
After it's paid for, does the guy send you email notifications for updates?

Hi all,

I used to have a program that was speech friendly for backing up outlook

I thought it was called

I've done google searches but can't find it.
If anyone knows where I can get this free program or another free

The problems you are experiencing are common on work computers, especially
those which are linked together via a local or wide area network. I had
similar issues when I studied at the Illinois School for the Visually
Impaired, a residential school for the blind. There JAWS was installed on
a
server, not on individual computers. The problem was so bad that I didn't
even try to open more than two windows at a time because I knew that doing
so would cause JAWS to lock up. Although I reported the issue, no one
addressed it. I feel your frustration, but I'm afraid that there is no

Subject: application file for jaws has stopped working error message in
windows 7 and jaws 14

This is probably the most important message I have sent to the list so
far, and the thing I need the most assistance with since it involves my
work. My issue is this.
A year ago, on my work pc, I experienced an up-grade from JAWS 12 to
JAWS 14, and from Windows xp to windows 7. On any given day it's not
uncommon for me to have at least half-a dozen windows-based applications
up
that I use at different times: a couple of internet explorer windows to
read
work-related documents, an instant message program to converse with my
supervisor and others, and two applications I use to help with customer
info. I use a focus 40 as a Braille display and Jaws pretty much as a
guide for some screens that it''s easier to process through speech rather
than Braille.
My issue is this. Sometimes, when switching between applications or
sometimes when pop-up messages appear, or when certain applications are
taking their time loading, Jaws freezes up. It might just be taking its
time
loading, but when it freezes up it gets very frustrating to wait on and so
I press the alt control plus j command to reload. What follows is Jaws
saying "application file for Jaws has stopped working and needs to close."
There are two options. Check online for a solution and close the program.
I
tab to close the program and press enter. I have to do it several times
before it goes away. If a sighted person tries to use my mouse to assist
me during this time they can't because of the sluggishness of the system.
Have any of you in your work situations encountered this freezing
problem
and how have you dealt with it? I need to find out how to prevent it. It
was not really an issue before I did my upgrade last year, but it is now
all
the time. Any helpful hints would be appreciated. I look forward to hearing
(or I guess in my case it would be reading on my Pac Mate), about your
experiences with Jaws in your work enviornments.

Ryan Coverdell

Re: application file for jaws has stopped working error message in windows 7 and jaws 14

Adrian Spratt
 

Ryan,

I might be reading your useful description too closely, but you omit a step before indicating you press the command to reload JAWS. I suggest you first ensure it has been unloaded by pressing either of the following two commands:

JAWS key+F4, or, better still
JAWS key+Win key+F4.

This last command shuts JAWS down completely.

Then, with JAWS 14, press your alt-control-j reload JAWS shortcut. (Note that you must have created this shortcut because it isn't a JAWS default, even though most of us use this same combination.)

I'm finding JAWS 16 much better at handling the unload/reload process. For one thing, when you press JAWS key+Win key+F4, JAWS returns on its own in a few seconds. (I believe one or more listers has said this doesn't work for them in JAWS 16, but it does for me.)

One more suggestion, which will be obvious. Try to keep open only those windows with which you're working. I don't pretend to understand PC memory and RAM issues, but experience teaches me that a PC can handle only so many applications and windows at once, especially with JAWS running. Your description makes it clear you do need to have several windows open at once, but the fewer the better.

Annabelle's antivirus suggestion is also something to look into. I know the problem occurs at work, so antivirus programming isn't directly in your control, but perhaps you could get your tech support people to look into it.

Hello Brien,
I am new at this, but isn't a capital letter dot 6 and the letter?
Cheers Kevin.

Hi, folks.

Writing in uncontracted braille with the focus 14 blue, how do you make a
capital letter.

Holding down dot 7 and pressing the letter still is making a lower case
letter.

All the best, Brian

Re: application file for jaws has stopped working error message inwindows 7 and jaws 14

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Do you have any viruses on your machine? Maybe you might have an antivirus
software running in the background, I know sometimes that slows my machine
down when stuff like that happens. I especially get that
JAWS-freezing-the-whole-machine scenario when I'm trying to sign in to
Itunes. Usually what I do is press Insert+F4 and then Enter to exit JAWS. I
then wait a few seconds, and I press my hotkey (Alt+Control+Shift+J) to open
JAWS again. Usually that works for me.

Subject: application file for jaws has stopped working error message
inwindows 7 and jaws 14

This is probably the most important message I have sent to the
list so far, and the thing I need the most assistance with since it
involves my work. My issue is this.
A year ago, on my work pc, I experienced an up-grade from JAWS 12
to JAWS 14, and from Windows xp to windows 7. On any given day it's
not uncommon for me to have at least half-a dozen windows-based
applications up that I use at different times: a couple of internet
explorer windows to read work-related documents, an instant message
program to converse with my supervisor and others, and two
applications I use to help with customer info. I use a focus 40 as a
Braille display and Jaws pretty much as a guide for some screens
that it''s easier to process through speech rather than Braille.
My issue is this. Sometimes, when switching between applications
or sometimes when pop-up messages appear, or when certain
applications are taking their time loading, Jaws freezes up. It might
just be taking its time loading, but when it freezes up it gets very
frustrating to wait on and so I press the alt control plus j command
to reload. What follows is Jaws saying "application file for Jaws has
stopped working and needs to close." There are two options. Check
online for a solution and close the program. I tab to close the
program and press enter. I have to do it several times before it goes
away. If a sighted person tries to use my mouse to assist me during
this time they can't because of the sluggishness of the system.
Have any of you in your work situations encountered this freezing
problem and how have you dealt with it? I need to find out how to
prevent it. It was not really an issue before I did my upgrade last
year, but it is now all the time. Any helpful hints would be
appreciated. I look forward to hearing (or I guess in my case it would
be reading on my Pac Mate), about your experiences with Jaws in your
work enviornments.

Kindest regards,

Ryan Coverdell

Re: Firefox problem starting today

Hi Soronel:
On 4/9 I installed the latest JAWS rel.16 and used it successfully.
Today it still works with the Firefox that was active on 4/9.
How do we tell Mozilla about the JAWS issue?

It may have started yesterday (Friday) for me but yes, and it started

things were still fine, this happened sometime beyond that).

this could be the cause. If so, has anyone attempted to update Firefox sync.
Any tips?

Hi Adrian :
Thanks for the alert.
I used Firefox this morning with no problems.
Then I got a notice wanting me to upgrade to the next version.
I'll wait a while before buying that trouble.
What were you doing when FF failed?
Can you do anything without the failure?

Hello.

I'm going to assume that most of us are speaking of installing the client
such as office 2013.

I hope this helps.

Hi everyone



1. You write below that Office 365 and JAWS 16 work exceptionally.



But is it possible to block updates to the desktop client, e.g. when
Microsoft release Office 2016 between your Office 365 subscription?

I ask you since I not using Office 365 at this moment, because I not can be
sure that the upcoming Office 2016 working with JAWS for the first month
after the release.



I will be sure that I still can use Office after the release, until Freedom
Scientific has make an update to JAWS.



2. What working best in connection with Office 365 and JAWS 16, the desktop
client, where you, as far as I know currently use Office 2013, or the Office
365 web app?



Thanks in advance.
