Re: learning to do scripting

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

I haven't looked lately, but I think a manual was once part of the JAWS package, and I know one exists.

Just wondering how one learns to do scripting? If you can't see the screen to begin with, how do you know what to code? Scripting interests me, but I don't know how to get started. Are there any resources that teach this from the beginning from a blind point of view?

Re: Microsoft outlook

Lelia

Not sure if you got a more intelligent response than Kevin's.
First, touch the Windows key and type
System sound
You will get an option something like, change system sounds.
Hit enter and tab twice.
Use your tab key to navigate to the tree view, if you have not landed on it
already.
Arrow down until you find new mail notification.
Tab twice to see what sound if any is selected. Any WAV sound will do but
the default is
Windows Notify.wav
If no sound is set you will need to, arrow down until you find a sound you
like or tab twice to browse for a sound and set it.
Don't forget to save your changes after setting the sound you will need to
tab to the apply button and use it.

quick question aboot blindtunes

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

I just purchased the latest blindtunes scripts.

I briefly listened to the 47 minute demo on the site talking aboot how to
use it. During the demo, it said we could select individual tracks by
pressing CTRL down arrow and pressing spacebar. It sucks that one cannot do
that without scripts with the latest itunes.

When I did this, I was told I can only do it during a play list, so I cannot
do this within the library so I can quickly add songs to a play list?

So, I can only do this from within a created play list? I'm going to listen
to it through one more time tomorrow night, as I just purchased the scripts
a few minutes ago, and I was to tired to listen and pay attention to the
demo.

And, I'm aware of the keystroke to get a list, but I like audio demos.. My
brain is different like that as it relates to processing information. Lol



Thoughts are welcomed though. I love you guys on this list.

Good night.

David Ingram
 

Hi list members, I'm wanting to know if anyone is familiar with outlook
2013? The reason why I ask this question is because I want to create
folders for different messages to go to from different lists that I'm on.
I'd like to make sure that the different folders are all the same level as
my in box. I would appreciate any information that you might have
concerning my inquiry.

Re: Trouble accessing menus in latest iTunes

Hi. You don't mention if you arrow up or down once you land on one of the menus-file, edit, accounts, etc. On my system, which is similar to yours, these menus work tonight. I just checked.

Hi,

Running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit with latest J16.

After opening itunes, I go to the menu bar with an alt key. I can navigate to various menu headings with left right cursor, but nothing I do gets me into a list of options within any given menu category.

This worked fine last night.

I've tried closing an reopening iTunes several times. I've closed JAWS and restarted. Nothing seems to help.

Sometimes I get an announcement of Context menu, but nothing reads when this is up.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance, Keith

Hi,

I have a new My Passport 2 TB drive that I've connected via USB to my PC --
Windows 7, 64-bit, running J16 latest build.

The drive is seen in Windows Explorer, and I can get to it fine, listing the
several onboard folders, but I can't seem to do anything with it. All I get
is a statement about a Context menu, but nothing I do generates any
activity, whether using cursor keys, Tab, Control Tab, Applications key.

I'm stumped. I haven't had this problem with other drives of this type I've
used, all of which were just plug-n-play.

Any help appreciated. Keith

Kevin Hourigan <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Hello Lelia,
In Jaws 16, Office 2013, and Windows 7, it is in the context menu, down
arrow to rules, left arrow, down arrow to manage rules and alerts, press
enter, and tab, or control tab around in the following warren, and you
should come across what you are looking for, lol.
Cheers Kevin.

There is a mailing list for JAWS scripting:
http://www.freelists.org/list/jawsscripts

I intend to learn scripting in the near future, as soon as I can clear some
time to work on it. I have made a living as a computer programmer for the
past 30 years, so I don't expect it to be difficult. It will be "just
another programming language". But if you don't have experience as a
programmer, then I imagine you might find it quite a challenge. You would
need to not only learn the JAWS scripting language, but you'd also need to
learn basic programming concepts such as syntax, build errors, iteration,
conditionals, variables, data structures, programming interfaces, software
design principles, project management, etc. These are all things I learned
in high school and college back in the late 1970s and early 1980s, so they
are ingrained in me, but they would present a significant, perhaps
insurmountable, learning curve for someone new to the area and
self-educating more or less in isolation.

Huh. After reading that, I guess I sound like some kind of know it all! Ha
ha. That was not my intent. I was just trying to point out that JAWS
scripting is, in essence, computer programming. And that's something most
people spend years learning how to do well. I just want you to know what
you're getting into.

Subject: RE: windows 10

Drew, it really depends on what you like to do when using your computer.
From all accounts, most of what we as screen reader users do with Windows 7
and 8.1, we should be able to do with Windows 10. The new Windows 10 has a
new web browser called the Edge, which may not deliver the best web
experience in the beginning. You can learn more about that by listening to
the Windows 10 discussion on Fs Cast EP 109. Glen Gordon was a guest on
that show, and he talks in depth about Windows 10. Also, from what he said
on the show, when you first install Windows 10, you won't have JAWS speech.
You will have to use narrator at first, and then once the set up wizzard has
finished, you can run JAWS and it will work, as long as you have the latest
build of JAWS 16. Magic users must be running version 13. I am a little
concerned about how frequently Microsoft plans to update this new version of
Windows. That was also discussed on the FS cast episode I referenced
earlier. I wonder how that will affect JAWS performance or any screen
reader or magnifier performance for that matter. Hope this helps!

Can you find JAWS like with Windows F or on the Start menu? If you can, get into it, then hit Alt and go down to Send Sub menu, then Right Arrow, then Down Arrow to where it says Short cut to Desktop. Hit Enter. I hope it will be that simple for you.

Best to you from,
