Re: Colors with JAWS 16 using Track Changes in Word 2010

Kimber Gardner
 

I haven't seen this problem yet, but it could be a big one since I
work with editors and proofers quite often. If you would report back
with your findings I would be grateful. I'm still using jaws 15 for
the most part, but was just about to make the switch to16. However if
colors and track changes is broken I will stay with version 15.

Thanks,
Kimber

Subject: Colors with JAWS 16 using Track Changes in Word 2010

We use track changes in our practice, and it is sometimes important to
distinguish colors in track changes. The standard defaults, in MS Word
2010, are RED and strikethrough for deleted text and Blue and double
underlining for added text. For psychological reasons, clients don't like
to send documents with lots of red. So, I have changed my track change
colors, as per the "review" ribbon. Unfortunately, I have learned that,
despite the colors set on my computer, the recipient's computer will
change them, particularly if "track changes" are shown "by author."

That caused me to explore. I sent a document from my Windows 7 (JAWS 15)
computer to my Windows 8.1 JAWS 16) computer.

Deletions on the Windows 7 (JAWS 15) computer indicated the proper colors
for deletes and additions.

On my Windows 8.1 (JAWS 16) computer, the colors were either "Black on
White" or "black on black."

I got the same read-out from JAWS, whether I used JAWS Key plus 5 or JAWS
Key plus f to check the colors.

Is JAWS 16 simply defective when it comes to detecting track change
colors?

Re: EBOOKS AND JAWS?

What about bookshare.org? If you provide them with proof of your
disability you can have a $50.00 subscription per year and you can
download up to 100 books in a Braille ready formatt or through various
other outputs. Right now that's the only way I get e-books and they
have most major title. Personally I like to call bookshare.org a kind
of net flix for the blind because of their accessability to so many
choices instantly. And you don't have to pay for each download.

With PDF again it is up to the publisher but at least there it is the

You do have to enable expressive and direct separately in the

can't use both at the same time though, you are stuck having a profile
use either direct or expressive voices.

Re: ICloud?

Rex Leslie Howard, Jr.
 

I am going to be discussing Jaws specifically in just a short
paragraph so everybody just hold your horses.
I am a new iPhone user myself. Just got one Thursday and have only had
it activated for the past 24 hours or so. Jaws is accessible with
www.icloud.com if you use Mozilla Firefox as the browser. Internet
Explorer is not an adequate browser according to Apple's standards of
access.
Although you will be able to navigate almost seamlessly around the
ICloud services as long as you're using Mazilla and read all the
information. You will not be able to do some tasks because they
require you to access the servers with
you will not be able to do a whole lot because this site was designed
specifically IOS devices. This is what they were designed for. If you
don't use an Apple product, don't get an account with ICloud. It will
turn out to be a huge waste of time. If you do have an IProduct, be
sure and get the ICloud account. You'll need it. One thing to keep in
mind here is that these websites are build almost solely on the touch
screen technology. Sometimes you'll have to activate the "touch
cursor" and use it as if you were actually on a touch screened
computer.
Other times you will have to use the invisible cursor and you will
also need to frequently use the Jaws cursors. A little rule of thumb
these days is, try that touch cursor out when you appear to be having
accessability issues with a site. Also, remember to have both Internet
Explorer and Mozilla installed. For example, Rhapsody used to be a
very very accessible site with easy web access. Now the site is an
absolutely abominable resource. I've pleaded with them in an attemzpt
to get them to put up their classic website. They say they want
feedback and suggestions but ... well, can't prove that by me yet.
Anyway, Feel free to ask me any JAWS and Apple problems and if I can
help I will.

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
commands will work in her behalf.

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
newer versions of Windows. But I've done it with the burner software of
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
its express sub-program with little trouble. I can copy something from
explorer in a standard file tree and paste it into a window in the
program and then burn a CD with minimal effort.
I know of no blind accessible devices that will burn CD to CD without a

Subject: a blind musician requesting help from other blind brothers
and sisters 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.

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.
James

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

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.

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

My answer has been a laptop ... I get the songs I want from the
Internet, put them in a folder on the laptop, plug the laptop into my
sound system, split JAWS off to my headset/earpiece, select the song I
want from the folder with winamp, windows media player, whatever and sing
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.

Mario
 

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?
my exploded address: mrb620 at hotmail dot com

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.
