Re: exporting jaws settings

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

The way I do it is, first, I create a folder in "My Documents" and call it
something like "JAWS Settings". Next, I go into the "Explore My Settings"
section of JAWS from the programs menu, then I copy everything from that
folder onto the clipboard. Finally, I go into my new folder "JAWS Settings"
which I've created in "My Documents", and I paste the contents of the
clipboard into that folder. You can name your folder whatever is easy for
you to remember, and save it where you can easily find it.

Re: google translator?

Michal Nowicki <mnowicki4@...>
 

I just tried out Google Translate with JAWS, and I think I figured out how
to use it. The trick to using the site is that there are two sets of
buttons. Moving through the page from top to bottom, the first set is for
the source language, while the second is for the target language; I figured
this out through trial and error. Once you get a hang of this, the rest is
straightforward. In the text box, you can type or copy and paste a string
of text or the URL of a website you want to translate. The option to
translate an entire document also seems to work, though I haven't gone
through all the steps. When you activate the link, you are given the option
to upload a file in the same manner you would if you were attaching a
document to an online form.

Finally, whether you use Google Translate or another program, please keep in
mind that no machine translator is as accurate as a human translator because
machines can't analyze the context in which words are used; consequently,
they often use words incorrectly.

Recently, I haven't had much luck using Google Translate with JAWS and
Internet Explorer; the site used to be much more accessible. You may,
however, be able to use it with Chrome if you install ChromeVox, a screen
reader built specifically for Google Chrome. I heard that ChromeVox works
well with Google Drive and other Google applications, so I recommend trying
it with Translate. Alternatively, there is a Google Translate iOS app,
which is accessible. Good luck!

What luck are people having using google translator? I see an option to
translate an entire document. Does anyone have luck with this? Also, if
the translation sucks, what would you recommend to use, if I were to write
up a lengthy letter and would like to translate it into let's say Spanish?

Thanks.

Re: limit to dictionary

Barbara Corner <bcorner@...>
 

There is a way in Adobe Reader to select text and then have it highlighted
so a sighted person can read what you have highlighted, that is what I'm
trying to do.

Also is there a JAWS keystroke to enable you to read what you have selected?

Thanks!

Re: limit to dictionary

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

2000 seems like a very unlikely limit. It's not a computer number. 2048 would be more believable.

Yet it still baffles me why there would be a limit at all, as JAWS should simply allocate more RAM to hold more entries.
