Re: Subject: Vocalizer Expressive Voices work, but Vocalizer Direct Voices

That is not actually true.

You do have to enable expressive and direct separately in the
synthesizer and braille manager but both will work in jfw16. You
can't use both at the same time though, you are stuck having a profile
use either direct or expressive voices.

Re: EBOOKS AND JAWS?

Soronel Haetir
 

Some do, some don't.

For instance, even when marked as being accessible kindle books
require that jaws or some other recognized screen reader be running in
order for the accessible kindle app to operate in accessible mode
(although since one of the recognized readers is free this isn't much
of a limitation) but even then the app does not actually use the
recognized screen reader for voice output (instead the app has a
couple voices embedded and uses those).

With PDF again it is up to the publisher but at least there it is the
user's screen reader that will be used to read the content.

I can't speak for other e-book formats.

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

Hi Tyler,
Can you give some of us a detailed explanation on how you got windows media
player to burn to CD? I'm particularly needing to know how to copy CD's
using windows media player for a client that has windows 7. However, she's
using Window-eyes instead of Jaws. I'm hoping that the standard windows

For eight years, I have been copying my audio files to the CD drive, which
is then followed by the computer offering to burn the CD with Windows Media
Player, and I've successfully done it many times. The one time I didn't was
my mistake, because of the surprising differences between Windows XP and the

Windows Media Player, because my computer has the needed hardware built in.
I'm glad it had that software!

When burning to a CD I use a program called Nero, which handles this in

I know of no blind accessible devices that will burn CD to CD without a

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

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.

recorded with the digital recorder)

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
easy
fix, as your employer would likely need to make major changes in the
company/organization's computer infrastructure, something that may be
extremely difficult, if not impossible, to accomplish.

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.

Kindest regards,

Ryan Coverdell



P.S. Please keep the comments professional. I realize that many of
you are probably adept at doing google searches and such, but for specific
issues like this I would appreciate personal attention. I cannot call
FREEDOM SCIENTIFIC about this since I work when their hours are.

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

I would try not to be so pessimistic. Schools, places of employment, public agencies, and so on, have an obligation to provide adequate accommodations. That in-house tech support can't make their network fully accessible is, frankly, inexcusable. I'm especially dismayed that the experience you describe refers to a school for the blind. I understand it can be stressful to be assertive about these rights, but it is crucial if visually impaired people are to prove our value, as well as attain independence.

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 easy
fix, as your employer would likely need to make major changes in the
company/organization's computer infrastructure, something that may be
extremely difficult, if not impossible, to accomplish.

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



P.S. Please keep the comments professional. I realize that many of
you are probably adept at doing google searches and such, but for specific
issues like this I would appreciate personal attention. I cannot call
FREEDOM SCIENTIFIC about this since I work when their hours are.

Hi all,

I used to have a program that was speech friendly for backing up outlook
express.
I thought it was called
oebackup.
I've done google searches but can't find it.
If anyone knows where I can get this free program or another free
program since this is for a one off use that would be appreciated.

Re: Extra Sounds in JAWS 16

Hello Ann,
I have the clicking and popping noises on Fire Fox since I installed Webvisum, but nowhere else; using Windows 7 and Jaws 16.
Cheers Kevin.

Subject: Extra Sounds in JAWS 16

I just received a new computer at work and
upgraded to the JAWS 16.0 software. Witht the
new computer and new software, I hear an annoying
clicking/popping sound every time I type a letter
or use the arrow or tab keys/etc…I called Tech
support at Freedom Scientific and they indicated
that the new sound cards/drivers have actually
been a cause and they recommended dumbing down
all of your sound settings. I guess I was hoping
a good old fashioned Mono Tone option was
available, but that is not an option any
more. Have you ever experienced this? Thanks for any insight

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.
