blocking mail

Stan Holdeman
 

Using jaws 16 and Windows Live Mail, how can I find out if I have inadvertently set up list mail to be blocked?

Isn’t there an option some where to block certain senders. Our administrator says I am excessively kicking back list mail.

Hi Keith ,

Not sure about the games in the link I sent yesterday, but there are many
multi player games that one or more people can play on the same computer.
One good website is for Jim Kitchens audio games, it contains games such as
monopoly, game of life and many more that are multi player and also some
really good fun single player games such as golf, driving games and many
more. All games are again free on his site , although all of jim kitchen's
games don't actually require jaws as they are all self-voicing using the
PC's built in voice called SAPPI 5. Below is the link to his games .

I understand these are all single computer games, but are they all single
player games? Are any of them playable by more than 1 player using the same
computer? Thanks, Keith

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 .

Below is the direct link to the blind games part of the spoonville website

Hi,

I play lots of audio computer games, I'm not sure which web site you
mean as I googled it and couldn't find it. Below is a link to a
website that lists most audio computer games so they should all work
with jaws and if not 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 the games work with jaws. If you have
any questions about the audio games website below feel free to ask

Track changes in Word 2007/2013

Russell Solowoniuk
 

Hi everyone,

What is the most efficient way to use track changes in MS Word 2013 or
2007 using Jaws 16? It seems a little tedious to bring up a list of
revisions with shift + Insert + R and then work through all the listed
insertions and deletions one by one, especially in a long document. Is
there a way to accept or reject a change and then jump directly to the
next revision and so on without having to bring up the list again?

Any suggestions for using track changes more efficiently would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks all.

Russell

Re: HJPad

Andre Jarreau <andre.jarreau@...>
 

I think Bill White and a few others had a pretty good point. Tandem in with
Freedom Scientific techs and let them see if HJPad is intact. You might
have to reload or repair JAWS16. But also be aware your virus protection
software may have quarantined HJPad. If this is the case you will have to
dig into your virus protection software and turn a few things on or off so
the virus scan won't see HJPad as a threat and quaranteen it again.

If reinstalling or repairing JAWS16 results in the same problem. Then it
could be the virus protection firewall. Be sure to let the Freedom techs
know what antivirus protection you use. They probably would know if the
antivirus software is the overall problem or not. Hope this helps.

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

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

3. Press the space bar to activate this button.

5. Start arrowing down. The item you want is called "utilities JAWS

Re: HJPad

Chris Jenkins
 

Hello Tom.

HJPad is a simple word processor that was packaged with JAWS for Windows for
training purposes. They could show things such as a spellchecker,
formatting, finding colored text, and quite a few other things that they
could not show in WordPad.

I hope this helps.

Re: Outlook 2010 and JAWS, font color

Adrian Spratt
 

Steve,

Your full explanation helps a lot. I definitely don't want my foreground color to be the same as the background, so I'll probably revert to "automatic," as you suggest. Unfortunately, that was the setting before I started meddling, which means that I haven't solved my puzzling problem about the unintended color change. But at least I have a better understanding of how to work with JAWS in this dialog.

Subject: RE: Outlook 2010 and JAWS, font color

Hi Adrian,

I can't answer the first question; why one correction you make shows a different colour to the recipient than your other corrections.

About choosing the colours, there are two points to make. The first is that the control for colours is non-standard, and selecting a specific colour may be problematic. The second is that I've always believed it was best to choose Automatic rather than a specific colour, because then the font colour depends on the background colour. If a recipient has white as their background, the text will appear black. But if another recipient has black as their background, the text will appear white. If you choose a specific colour, that's what it will be regardless of the background colour.

Below I can try and explain a bit more about the font colour control, but I warn you it may go way beyond your level of interest!

The Font Colour control looks like a combo box, but when I get to it, JAWS says "Font Color (Text 1) Button". Neither Enter nor Alt-DownArrow work on this control, but Space and DownArrow both open the list, and JAWS says "Font dialogue, Font page", but if I arrow further down the list, JAWS doesn't say anything. However, I can press A to select Automatic and close the combo box, and then OK the dialogue.

The combo list has Automatic at the top, and then there is an array made up of six rows and ten columns. This array is headed "theme colours". Under that is a single row of ten columns headed "standard colours", and at the bottom of the list is an item called More colours.

When I DownArrow from Automatic, my focus goes to column six of the first row of the array. If I carry on pressing DownArrow, I go through each of the six rows, still in column six, and then to the single row under Standard colours. On the first row of the Theme Colours, and the row under Standard colours, I can use right and left arrow to move through the row and JAWS reads the colours. On the other five rows on the screen, I hear nothing from JAWS if I arrow left and right through them.

On the first row under theme colours, here are the colours I get if I press LeftArrow repeatedly:
Blue, Accent 1
Dark Blue, Text 2
Tan, Background 2
Black, Text 1
White, Background 1
Orange, Accent 6
Aqua, Accent 5
Purple, Accent 4
Olive Green, Accent 3
Red, Accent 2

And on the standard colours:
Light Green
Yellow
Orange
Red
Dark Red
Purple
Dark Blue
Blue
Light Blue
Green

The More Colours option at the bottom of the list opens a further dialogue on which colours can be chosen with the mouse. I haven't bothered looking at this dialogue.

Subject: RE: Outlook 2010 and JAWS, font color

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.

Re: HJPad

It has a spell check for one thing. It also has a number of training tools
in it that you can use with the basic training in FSReader. I use these with
students on a regular basis and was wondering where they were in 8.1. So, I
went looking for it. Typing HJPad or even just HJ into the search box didn't
work. It's basically a souped up Word pad.

In the Windows search field, which you reach by pressing the Windows key,
type just the two letters hj. On my system, it immediately brings up "Run

For anyone wondering, "HJ" stands for Henter-Joyce, the name of the JAWS
developer before FS bought it.

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

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

3. Press the space bar to activate this button.

5. Start arrowing down. The item you want is called "utilities JAWS

same thing with the number of your JAWS version. I only have 16 on the

6. Press enter on this item, and you will find all of the things you

I would suggest you just buy a set of usb headphones, I have yet to
encounter such a set that requires any drivers that windows does not
already have.

I agree, but suggest making this change in your e-mail dictionary file, rather than across the board. In fact, I've used this approach successfully. Greater than and less than have some legitimate uses, so it might be good to have them spoken overall.

Good afternoon Barbara,

When I had a similar problem, I added an entry to the default dictionary manager.
1. Press JAWS Modifier Key Plus F2.
2. Press the Letter D.
3. Press Control, Shift, D.
Note: If your computer asks you to save a new dictionary file name, pressing escape will also take you into the default file.
4. Press your SpaceBar key on the "add" button.
5. Type the grater than symbol, ">" (typically shift, period)in the actual word field.
6. After tabbing once, then type a space " "into the replacement word field.
7. Tab to the "OK" button and Press SpaceBar.
8. Press Alt, F4 to close the Dictionary Manager, and Alt, Y, (as in yes), to save the changes.
I hope this helps.

Enjoy your weekend,

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.

Speaking of, those folks are supposed to have a hot new edition with a resume function and better Blu-ray handling. I don't remember if I read about it in PCWorld or saw it somewhere else, but a trip to their Website produced only the same version I've seen for a year and a half. Is this new version vaporware, or did I just not look hard enough?

Thanks. I'll try it.

I have Windows 7 Professional. Yes, it is strange. My earlier computer was Windows 7 64 bit, and wmp was on it and worked fine; the keyboard started malfunctioning in a way that couldn't be resolved so it had to go to the place where computers that don't work live. This new computer is a company computer, so maybe they did something. On this new machine, it didn't even have the correct driver of the touchpad, and I couldn't even turn the darn thing off until we figured out what the problem was and downloaded the correct driver for the touchpad.

When VLC cam up, I couldn't get anything to speak to me. I'll try again, though. It sounds promising.

Not sure why you found VLC to be inaccessible. I love it! It plays almost anything. Perhaps this list of shortcut keys for VLC will help you:

Still that's weird that you don't have and can't have Windows Media Player. I have it, although if you have Windows 7 Starter, that could explain a lot.

The other thing I found out today is there is no Windows Media Player on this HP running Windows 7 64-bit. Only Quicktime Mediat Player and VLC Media Player. The VLC Media Player doesn't seem to be screenreader accessible. I tried downloading WMP but was told on the Microsoft site that, for some reason, WMP couldn't be installed on this computer. Hmmmmm. I think I have my work cut out for me.

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: Outlook 2010 and JAWS, font color

Steve Griffiths
 

Hi Adrian,

I can't answer the first question; why one correction you make shows a different colour to the recipient than your other corrections.

About choosing the colours, there are two points to make. The first is that the control for colours is non-standard, and selecting a specific colour may be problematic. The second is that I've always believed it was best to choose Automatic rather than a specific colour, because then the font colour depends on the background colour. If a recipient has white as their background, the text will appear black. But if another recipient has black as their background, the text will appear white. If you choose a specific colour, that's what it will be regardless of the background colour.

Below I can try and explain a bit more about the font colour control, but I warn you it may go way beyond your level of interest!

The Font Colour control looks like a combo box, but when I get to it, JAWS says "Font Color (Text 1) Button". Neither Enter nor Alt-DownArrow work on this control, but Space and DownArrow both open the list, and JAWS says "Font dialogue, Font page", but if I arrow further down the list, JAWS doesn't say anything. However, I can press A to select Automatic and close the combo box, and then OK the dialogue.

The combo list has Automatic at the top, and then there is an array made up of six rows and ten columns. This array is headed "theme colours". Under that is a single row of ten columns headed "standard colours", and at the bottom of the list is an item called More colours.

When I DownArrow from Automatic, my focus goes to column six of the first row of the array. If I carry on pressing DownArrow, I go through each of the six rows, still in column six, and then to the single row under Standard colours. On the first row of the Theme Colours, and the row under Standard colours, I can use right and left arrow to move through the row and JAWS reads the colours. On the other five rows on the screen, I hear nothing from JAWS if I arrow left and right through them.

On the first row under theme colours, here are the colours I get if I press LeftArrow repeatedly:
Blue, Accent 1
Dark Blue, Text 2
Tan, Background 2
Black, Text 1
White, Background 1
Orange, Accent 6
Aqua, Accent 5
Purple, Accent 4
Olive Green, Accent 3
Red, Accent 2

And on the standard colours:
Light Green
Yellow
Orange
Red
Dark Red
Purple
Dark Blue
Blue
Light Blue
Green

The More Colours option at the bottom of the list opens a further dialogue on which colours can be chosen with the mouse. I haven't bothered looking at this dialogue.

Subject: RE: Outlook 2010 and JAWS, font color

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.

Keith,

I suggest you reinstall JAWS. Sounds like something was corrupted or
interrupted.

I followed this path in Windows Explorer and the HJPad.exe was not there.

Keith,

This is not part of Win 7, it is part of JAWS. Here's the location for
JAWS16 on a Win 7 installation:

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

I give up. Where is it in Windows 7? I can't find it. Keith

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.

Re: Question about ripping DVD's to a hard drive.

Paul D. J. Jenkins <pdjj6123@...>
 

Hello Michael,

The one I use is called Slysoft, (I typically write the name as SlySoft),
AnyDVD Ripper. It is part of Any DVD, which can also be purchased with an
HD add-on. If my memory serves me correctly, it is sold in Germany, so
there will be a currency conversion. There is a 30-day trial. Their
website is:
http://www.AnyDVD.com

Good luck!

Paul Jenkins

Subject: Question about ripping DVD's to a hard drive.

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!
