I recently saw that someone was wanting to find HJPad and couldn't do so. In
Windows 7, this is fairly easy, but not so in Windows 8.1. I got curious, so
I started looking around. I finally found it, and here's how I did it.

1. Press the Windows key to get to the start screen if you aren't
already there.

2. Tab once. You will land on a button that says apps.

3. Press the space bar to activate this button.

4. You will then be presented with a very long list of everything that
is on your computer. Type jaws. It will automatically go into the search
box.

5. Start arrowing down. The item you want is called "utilities JAWS
16." I assume if you're using a different version number you would find the
same thing with the number of your JAWS version. I only have 16 on the
particular machine I tested on.

6. Press enter on this item, and you will find all of the things you
used to find in the JAWS program group in all programs on older versions of
Windows.

Hope this helps someone out.

Hi Carolyne ,

I play a lot of audio games on my PC and iPhone , everything from card
games, to golf to more complex games all really fun and totally accessible
using either jaws or my phones screen reader , would definitely recommend
trying a couple of audio games for yourself .

As for the spoonville games, I took a look at their website and they have a
section for blind games which will all either work with jaws or be
self-voicing and use the built in computer voice, also all the blind games
on the site are free too. in fact after taking a look at their website I
realised I have one of their games already .

lists most audio computer games so they should all work with jaws and if

they just use the windows built in voice (which is called sappy instead of
jaws). If you forward me the link I will take a look and let you know if

Question about ripping DVD's to a hard drive.

Michael Mote
 

Hi folks! Thought I would find out if anyone can recommend an accessible
program for ripping DVD's to a hard drive. A friend of mine would like to
burn some of the movies he has purchased to his hard drive. Is there a
program out there that works well with JAWS that can accomplish this? Many
thanks!

Hi Barbara,

I know these questions have been addressed several times, but I can't
seem to locate my notes on how to get rid of messages saying "greater
greater".
Probably the easiest way to get rid of the speaking of the greater-than sign
is to set punctuation to some or none. Go into the JAWS Window and the
Options menu. Go down to the Voices menu and into Voice Adjustment. Tab
around the Voice Adjustment dialog and you'll find the Voice Punctuation
combo box. Set it to whatever you want, then press Enter to close the
dialog.


My other question is, how to bring up the HJ pad in windows 8.1. I
know it is buried somewhere, but do not remember how to locate it.

I just looked on my girlfriend's Toshiba laptop running Windows 8.1 and
couldn't find HJ Pad either. I'm not sure why that is; maybe it's not
supported on Windows 8.1 or just isn't included with JAWS 16. . In either
case, you could use Wordpad and do everything that HJ pad would do and maybe
more. From the Start screen, type wordpad and you'll find it.

Hope that helps.

Tom

Re: Outlook 2010 and JAWS, font color

Adrian Spratt
 

Thank you, Steve and Carolyn, for replying. You both give me clues, but I'm not sure I'm getting the result I need.

Before I go through the steps I took, I've figured out what came out blue in the message I'd meant to be all black. I was working on a message to an organization over the course of several days. The person I addressed was named Bob. My last correction was to capitalize his first name. In the email my recipients got from me, his name was in blue, while everything else was black. I can't figure out why this would be, considering I'd made so many other revisions. On top of that, on the copy in my system, his name shows up as black.

If anyone has ideas about why that occurred, I'd love to know. Until I know the cause I can't figure out how to avoid the problem in the future.

Okay, so based on your suggestions, Carolyn and Steve, I did the following:

In Outlook 2010, I pressed alt-f, then t for "options."

I arrowed down once to "Mail."

I tabbed until I landed on "fonts and stationery" and pressed spacebar.

Here I tabbed to "font." There are two "font" buttons, as you'd indicated, Steve.

However, here is where randomness seem to take over. On my second attempt, I somehow arrowed or tabbed to "black," the color I wanted. I wasn't sure how to confirm it as my selection, but I pressed enter on it. Then I tabbed to Okay. I did the same with the second "font" button, again getting to black only through trial and error. Now, as I'm writing this post, I can't even find black again -just blues and greens.

So, for this part, I have two questions:

Is there a more certain method for reaching the color I want?

Can I be confident I've saved black for all message situations?

Sorry for this long post.

I have seen this too. Most of the time, unfortunately, the audio/video is a flash movie, so I don't think you can actually open it in a separate window with a media playback program on your computer. You may, however, be able to interact with the web player by turning off the virtual cursor and tabbing into the web player. At that point, you may be able to play/pause the audio/video with the spacebar, as well as use the arrow keys to rewind, fast forward, and adjust the volume. Good luck!

I know exactly what Keith is talking about. Many times, I will get on ESPN or many other sites, and the video or audio will begin playing.
It seems to be a player that is a part of the website itself. How do you get this audio or video material to play in Windows Media Player, for example. On ESPN and other sites, it just starts playing, and I cannot control it at all. I can't play, pause, or anything like that.
What do you do about this to either be able to control what you are hearing in that website or to be able to over-ride that and get it to play on your default player on the computer? Thanks a lot. Thanks Keith for bringing this up! I better say this LOL, I am using Windows 8.1, JAWS 16, and I am using an Asus laptop 64 bit lol!

Re: getting audio to play on default player

Michal Nowicki <mnowicki4@...>
 

Hi David,

One thing I would like to add is that when you tab through the web page with
the virtual cursor turned off, JAWS announces links, buttons, and other
standard controls as they gain focus, but it usually doesn't specifically
tell you when you've reached the media player. Instead, you know that you
are inside the web player when you press Tab and you get no feedback.

Thanks a lot, Brad. I never knew you could do that. I will give this a try
and get back with you all. I will also try turning off the virtual PC and
tabbing around to get into the player and see if I can use the space bar or
arrow keys to control things. Take care all.

Re: a couple of easy questions

Michal Nowicki <mnowicki4@...>
 

Bill,

The second paragraph of your last response probably gets at the heart of my
issue. When I did a simple Google search for HJPad last night, an
overwhelming majority of the results linked to web pages identifying the
software as potentially malicious and offering tips on disabling it and
scanning the hard drive for registry errors and infected files. Thank you
for your help.

Michal

I wouldn't give this link too much credence. As a matter of fact, some
antivirus programs actually see JAWS as a virus when it is not. If a program
is not catalogued in an antivirus's definition file, it is often marked as a
suspicious or malicious file.

What may be more troubling is that, depending upon which antivirus program
you use, it could quaranteen any suspicious files, and not allow them to
run. It can actually remove them from their proper folders and put them in
the quaranteened folder. This actually happened to someone on this list.

Hi Michal,



Okay I don't run Windows8 but, give this a try. Try following this file

path:



C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\16.0\HJPAD.EXE



When you get to the HJ Pad executable make a shortcut to your desktop then
you will always have easy access to it.

Take care.

Hi Bill and All,



I can't try the method you suggested because my computer is running
Windows

8.1; consequently, I have the start screen in place of the start menu. I

did, however, search for HJPad from the start screen but got no results.
I

also tried to open it from the "Run" dialog box, but that didn't work

either. It therefore looks like I don't have HJPad installed on my
machine.

Any ideas as to what could have happened? Is it possible that the program

is not compatible with Windows 8. Does it come standard with every
version

of JAWS? Does it matter whether I have a home or professional JAWS 16

license? Although I am not concerned because I have Word, it would still
be

nice to find out what's going on.



Best,



Michal

Hi again Michal. I neglected to say that the exact entry for "run HJPad"
is

under the start menu, under programs or all programs, then under the
submenu

of JAWS XX where XX is the version of JAWS which you are currently
running.

Hi Barbara,
You wrote:
I know these questions have been addressed several times, but I can't
seem to locate my notes on how to get rid of messages saying "greater
greater".
Probably the easiest way to get rid of the speaking of the
greater-than sign is to set punctuation to some or none. Go into the
JAWS Window and the Options menu. Go down to the Voices menu and into
Voice Adjustment. Tab around the Voice Adjustment dialog and you'll
find the Voice Punctuation combo box. Set it to whatever you want,
then press Enter to close the dialog.
My other question is, how to bring up the HJ pad in windows 8.1. I
know it is buried somewhere, but do not remember how to locate it.
I just looked on my girlfriend's Toshiba laptop running Windows 8.1
and couldn't find HJ Pad either. I'm not sure why that is; maybe it's
not supported on Windows 8.1 or just isn't included with JAWS 16. .
In either case, you could use Wordpad and do everything that HJ pad
would do and maybe more. From the Start screen, type wordpad and
you'll find it.
Hope that helps.
Tom

I have been in this situation many times as an undergrad student. Although

underline, bold, or italics to mark the items that a sighted person would

is not, you may need sighted assistance.

Re: Outlook 2010 and JAWS, font color

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

Adrian, go to Font, you'll have something like body; then tab, size; tab again, style; tab once more, then it should say color. Down Arrow to your choice. If you highlight your material first, that should change it or if you have written nothing, then your choice of color should appear as you type. Hit Insert F to check your changes. I hope that helps. I went to Office 10 to try it, since Office 10 does not recognize Outlook Express, and I could not make it work in it, thought I thought I'd changed the size not long ago. Anyway, I hope this will help.

hi guys:

I would like to know if there is a way that I can use the same voice features in wordpad like we have in microsoft word. What I’m asking is, I wish to have the ability to tell me the font and all that stuff when I use insert-f or alt-delete; in wordpad like it does in ms word. For instance, when I hit alt-delete in word it says something like “3 inches from left, 5 inches from top, page 3...” or whatever. If I do this in wordpad, I get “1, 10” or something like that which is relatively meaningless?

I guess what I want is all the same settings that come up in word, I wish them for wordpad?

I hope I haven’t confused anyone but it surely would be helpful to use this.

Please keep in mind, I’m not very technological on this stuff so please be overly descriptive with your directions on what to do.

Assume I am a child on this one, I will do whatever directions say to do.

Thank you very much for reading this; and hope to hear from someone soon.

Sincerely:

Mike M.
