Re: Pound Sign in Jaws

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

I wondered that about hitting 5 three times too. I think it just gives the character number of the character that the cursor is on.

Remember, life is what you make it,

Hi Adrian,

Yes, I use the, Jaws key + 4, keystroke quite often. I also have notes on
both ansi & ascii characters, & play around with them from time to time,
mainly out of extreme boredom. LOL LOL

I found it interesting that typing, 1,6,3, produced 1 thing & typing,
0,1,6,3, produced another. I should know better because those are 2 totally
different numbers when using ansi / ascii code. What I don't know is, when
you press the NumPad 5 key 3 times on a symbol, if Jaws is giving you ansi
or ascii code numbers.

Take care.
Mike

Like Soronel and you, I find typing ANSI/ASCII equivalents frustrating.
Northstar tells listers what to do when symbols aren't readily available
from other sources. But the JAWS key+4 partial symbols list is a nice
contribution from FS. There you can find, for example, em-dash and en-dash,
ellipses, and numerous accented letters. Oh, and the pounds sterling sign.

Hi Adrian & Northstar,

I'm not saying this to argue the ansi or ascii value of the sterling pounds
number, but when I press the, NumPad 5 key, 3 times quickly on the sterling
pounds symbol, it gives me a unicode number of 163. But yet, if I turn the
numpad on, hold down the Alt key, press 1, 6, 3, turn the numpad off, I get,
ú. doing what Norstar suggests & typing, 1, 5, 6 does give me the, £,
symbol. Whoops, I just tried typing, 0,1,6,3, & did get the, £, symbol.

The easy way using jaws is to use the jaws+4 dialog, the pound symbol
is on that list.

There is a way using the numpad but it's a pain because you have to
know the character number for the symbol you want.

If talking about an NTFS file system each level is limited to 256
characters and the total is limited to 32768, including drive

Re: Editing JAWS Special Keys List VKeyboard.jsm

Soronel Haetir
 

In my vkeyboard.jsm (latest jfw 16) file the tab is consistently used
to separate items in the lists. There are some items that show up
blank because characters are used that the font can't represent, but
those items are still separated by tabs.

Yes, but the script formatting in the description headers is bizarre. There

insert more characters. If I can't figure it out, then I'll need to just
substitute my 6 special characters in place of 6 others already in the list.

And if you are a masochist you can even expand the list.

You have to edit VKeyboard.jsm and then recompile VKeyboard.jss but it
is possible. I forget what symbol I added to an earlier jaws version
but I don't do that any more.

Hi Adrian & Northstar,

I'm not saying this to argue the ansi or ascii value of the sterling
pounds

number, but when I press the, NumPad 5 key, 3 times quickly on the
sterling

pounds symbol, it gives me a unicode number of 163. But yet, if I turn
the

numpad on, hold down the Alt key, press 1, 6, 3, turn the numpad off, I
get,

ú. doing what Norstar suggests & typing, 1, 5, 6 does give me the, £,
symbol. Whoops, I just tried typing, 0,1,6,3, & did get the, £, symbol.
Damn, this ansi / ascii stuff can get confusing! LOL LOL
Take care.

Re: Pound Sign in Jaws

Adrian Spratt
 

ANSI appears to be an updated version of ASCII, a code designed to enable machines to represent characters. It seems the original ASCII is outdated, while ANSI itself has had to be updated periodically.

There's also Unicode, which is the first 128 characters of ASCII/ANSI. When you press the 5 key on the numpad once, JAWS verbalizes the letter, punctuation mark, etc., of the character where you have focus. Press that key twice quickly, and JAWS says the character phonetically. Press it three times quickly, and JAWS gives the character's Unicode value.

Here's Wiki on all three systems:

And if you are a masochist you can even expand the list.

You have to edit VKeyboard.jsm and then recompile VKeyboard.jss but it
is possible. I forget what symbol I added to an earlier jaws version
but I don't do that any more.

Hi Adrian & Northstar,

I'm not saying this to argue the ansi or ascii value of the sterling
pounds

number, but when I press the, NumPad 5 key, 3 times quickly on the
sterling

pounds symbol, it gives me a unicode number of 163. But yet, if I turn
the

numpad on, hold down the Alt key, press 1, 6, 3, turn the numpad off, I
get,

ú. doing what Norstar suggests & typing, 1, 5, 6 does give me the, £,
symbol. Whoops, I just tried typing, 0,1,6,3, & did get the, £, symbol.
Damn, this ansi / ascii stuff can get confusing! LOL LOL

Re: Pound Sign in Jaws

Michael B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Adrian,

Yes, I use the, Jaws key + 4, keystroke quite often. I also have notes on
both ansi & ascii characters, & play around with them from time to time,
mainly out of extreme boredom. LOL LOL

I found it interesting that typing, 1,6,3, produced 1 thing & typing,
0,1,6,3, produced another. I should know better because those are 2 totally
different numbers when using ansi / ascii code. What I don't know is, when
you press the NumPad 5 key 3 times on a symbol, if Jaws is giving you ansi
or ascii code numbers.

Take care.

And just to make this procedure a little faster, you can use first-letter navigation within this list and get to pound with the third press of p.

The easy way using jaws is to use the jaws+4 dialog, the pound symbol
is on that list.

There is a way using the numpad but it's a pain because you have to
know the character number for the symbol you want.
