needing to run earlier versions of Jaws

Jean Menzies <jemenzies@...>
 

Changed the subject line.

Here is an example of why I won't upgrade and why I need to run an earlier version of Jaws. Jaws 16 will not read hidden text attributes in Word. I must, must, must have that functionality for my work, as I use the Duxbury Word template, which uses hidden text for text markup in Word. Jaws 15 reads this, so I need to stay with Jaws 15 until FS gets around to fixing this. Yes, I have reporrted it, with no resolution. I ultimately will need someone to verify for me that it does work in a future Jaws release before upgrading. With no option to simply load a previous version that works for this feature, I don't want to destroy my work productivity. For those interested, Hidden text can be turned on or off just like paragraph marks. Its under the Tools, Options, Display, where you can check show hidden text.

Don't mean to be "smart"; but, why would you want to use previous versions
of JAWS if you have the latest version running successfully. I'm sure that
there is a really good reason for it! :) :)

What I lose is the ability to use previous versions of JAWS.

Windows 10 won't be free after a year. I believe the 2020 date refers
to the
end up MS support. But for now, as Brad says, who has the time? I'm
waiting
for the first service pack (MS always comes out with one) and FS's first
rounds of fixes, all of which I expect will appear within the year.

What you gain is that, in 2020, when you finally decide to upgrade,
Windows10 won't be free anymore.

Hi,

I've been following all this Windows 10 stuff with great interest, and
I just have a question (with a lot of background first):

So FS says you shouldn't use Edge, you should use Firefox or IE. (I'm
doing that now in Windows 7.) You can't use the built in mail program;
you should use something like Thunderbird or Outlook. (I'm doing that
now in Windows 7.) And you should use Adobe Reader for PDF documents.
(I'm doing that now in Windows 7.) Reviews I've read all seem to
indicate that Cortana is iffy at best.

So why should I upgrade again? I'm not being smart; I'd really like to
know if I'm going to gain anything other than having a new operating
system that I have to use in the same old ways. The only benefit I can
see is that Windows 10 will be supported beyond January of 2020, where
Windows
7 will not. Am I overlooking some wonderful new feature that should
cause me to want to hurry and upgrade? Or does the old saying, "If it
ain't broke, don't fix it," apply here? I'd really honestly like to
know if JAWS users in particular are finding anything beneficial in
the upgrade, or if it's just something fun to do to your functioning
computer to see if it will still function.

P.S. Anybody on this list from Louisiana and thinking Cortana, as in
mall?

disabling Forms Mode

Sandra Streeter
 

Hope no one minds a somewhat-high-maintenance member... I am part-self-taught, part-trained-by-state-agency, part trained-using-audio-tutorials, and certain concepts are still either fuzzy or untried, despite my years of JAWS experience! I am also a highly visual learner, and process things best with a combination of Braille notes and hands-on... BTW, does anyone know if JAWS training materials are available in Braille? I do have the quick-ref booklet, but it’s of limited use. One question I’ve had for years: when materials mention an “element,” what exactly is that? Also, is there a keystroke for skipping to new messages on a website such as ours?

Really appreciate everyone’s feedback—I am the type that needs to know why things work the way they do, before really mastering concepts! Far more insight than I have previously. I will also try the Automatic setting again; didn’t seem to change things, or maybe I just didn’t understand it completely... Also, Kevin, I changed the Forms Mode sound to a long match-strike, due to some mild Asperger’s; it may be that I will have to select the next-least-intrusive sound, if the softness of that sound is making it harder for me to negotiate using Forms Mode. It was a nice idea, but not necessarily the most practical (LOL)! So, there’s no longer a “pop,” which I did experience as jarring; will have to see what other choices I have.

Carolyn, though I’m not familiar with the back story, I will keep Meredith in prayer—I’m a prayin’ woman. Your scenario happened to me just a few weeks ago, when I was trying to email my sister-in-law about a lunch date and ended up sending it to my mom instead—oops! No worries. Thanks!

Re: dual source headsets, where to get?

Brent Harding
 

Wow! The deal with the little cheap single ear earpieces is that the volume level on them is pretty quiet. It might be that the nearest talking ATM has low output when you turn it to high, but the 3 things together sounds like it would be uncomfortable.

Subject: dual source headsets, where to get?

I am wondering how you go about getting a dual source headset to be able to
hear JFW on one side and have a phone call on the other side. Even better,
it would be nice if the microphone sent its output back to the phone. I
tried getting quotes on a sight called Thumbtack, and I spoke with a guy who
answered who does audio engineering on the side. He thinks he could make a
cable where I could plug any headset mic in to do this, as long as it had
the combination jack that combines the headset and mic on it. If one was
going to use a phone that has the same kind of jack as the iPhone, which
uses the 4-band, 3.5mm connector, does such a product exist? The closes
thing I found years ago was a discontinued Plantronics headset, but it only
had the RJ headset plug for the phone side, which may or may not be able to
be adapted. Also, I'd like something less expensive than that. I spoke with
Plantronics the other day, and it appeared that what they may have had has
been discontinued so long ago that it isn't in their system any more. The
guy told me that the only dual source headsets like that have to be manually
switched between phone call and other source, which doesn't work if you
switch to read something and the person on the other end says something you
missed. What are people doing to achieve this these days?

Re: dual source headsets, where to get?

Brent Harding
 

I think I spoke with the same person I got on the line the other day, and she said this thing sounds like something very new to the market she didn't know they had before. As for getting a custom cable or set modified, one guy seemed confident he might be able to do it, while the other kept me on the phone talking about random computer stuff they did in the 80's and other stuff I got too tired late to understand his muffled voice any more. He claimed that the proper headsets, such as earpods, have an analog to digital converter that would need to be accounted for, but I doubt other 4-pin headsets even bother with something like this. I'm definitely not going with the guy who didn't know how the fourth pin works, thinking it would mix with the speaker part of the ear pieces. Circuit boards in a box are probably a too complex way to fix this simple issue.

Subject: dual source headsets, where to get?

I am wondering how you go about getting a dual source headset to be able
to
hear JFW on one side and have a phone call on the other side. Even
better,
it would be nice if the microphone sent its output back to the phone. I
tried getting quotes on a sight called Thumbtack, and I spoke with a guy
who
answered who does audio engineering on the side. He thinks he could make
a
cable where I could plug any headset mic in to do this, as long as it
had
the combination jack that combines the headset and mic on it. If one was
going to use a phone that has the same kind of jack as the iPhone, which
uses the 4-band, 3.5mm connector, does such a product exist? The closes
thing I found years ago was a discontinued Plantronics headset, but it
only
had the RJ headset plug for the phone side, which may or may not be able
to
be adapted. Also, I'd like something less expensive than that. I spoke
with
Plantronics the other day, and it appeared that what they may have had
has
been discontinued so long ago that it isn't in their system any more.
The
guy told me that the only dual source headsets like that have to be
manually
switched between phone call and other source, which doesn't work if you
switch to read something and the person on the other end says something
you
missed. What are people doing to achieve this these days?

Re: dual source headsets, where to get?

Brent Harding
 

It would seem so, whatever plug the removable cord desk phones use in to the 4 pin 3.5mm. I called Headsets.com, and the woman that answered said she would contact their shipping people to see if it exists. It is seeming to be going to be a hard solution to a simple problem. She said that the phone cord to 3.5 adapter can't be done because you have the power and stuff that is typically in a desk handset.

Surely there is a converter somewhere to convert it to the 3.5mm.

Re: dual source headsets, where to get?

Brent Harding
 

I just spoke with them. The lady I got didn't think at first that this one did two sources at all, but I had her look at the features part. She said that they have no 3.5mm connection adapter for the phone side, but she said she would email their shipping people to see if they can get such a thing. So much for Plantronics telling me that no such product existed.

Oh, OK. I wonder if they make a way to have it hook into the 4 band 3.5mm

some phones had the removable cord on the handset part, and you plug a cable
from the amp part into this instead, and the original phone cable in to the
other side, sort of like answering machines did.

Re: dual source headsets, where to get?

Brent Harding
 

He was planning on some kind of cable with the iPhone headset style 3.5mm connection on one side, a regular 3.5mm connector like computers use on the other, and the other end of the cable would plug in to any iPhone compatible headset mic. It's looking about half the price of the nearest solution I found elsewhere, which was the Plantronics SMH-1783-11, which is more for corded phones to go between the handset and phone. I don't think the phone handset connector can be adapted for iPhones though.

Re: dual source headsets, where to get?

Brent Harding
 

Oh, OK. I wonder if they make a way to have it hook into the 4 band 3.5mm jacks on the phone side? I think I get how this is supposed to work where some phones had the removable cord on the handset part, and you plug a cable from the amp part into this instead, and the original phone cable in to the other side, sort of like answering machines did.

The Amplifier is for the phone itself. The Amp plugs into where the handset
would be, and you run the headset that way. I've used it before, and they
work Ok.

I am surprised Plantronics never mentioned that one. Maybe there isn't a way
to have a 3.5mm 4-ring plug for the phone end. I don't care at all about the
play and fastforward buttons. I wonder why one needs an amplifier at all
unless you were hearing impaired.

Subject: dual source headsets, where to get?

I am wondering how you go about getting a dual source headset to be able
to
hear JFW on one side and have a phone call on the other side. Even better,
it would be nice if the microphone sent its output back to the phone. I
tried getting quotes on a sight called Thumbtack, and I spoke with a guy
who
answered who does audio engineering on the side. He thinks he could make a
cable where I could plug any headset mic in to do this, as long as it had
the combination jack that combines the headset and mic on it. If one was
going to use a phone that has the same kind of jack as the iPhone, which
uses the 4-band, 3.5mm connector, does such a product exist? The closes
thing I found years ago was a discontinued Plantronics headset, but it
only
had the RJ headset plug for the phone side, which may or may not be able
to
be adapted. Also, I'd like something less expensive than that. I spoke
with
Plantronics the other day, and it appeared that what they may have had has
been discontinued so long ago that it isn't in their system any more. The
guy told me that the only dual source headsets like that have to be
manually
switched between phone call and other source, which doesn't work if you
switch to read something and the person on the other end says something
you
missed. What are people doing to achieve this these days?

Sharon took Meredith to the Kennedy Kreiger Institute in Baltimore for
evaluation and hoped for treatment. After a thorough study of her history,
as well as examination, they determined that Meredith was not a candidate
for inpatient treatment at their facility.



They did make recommendations with regard to adjustment of some of her
medication and, yet again, more physical therapy to fight damage that has
already had effects on her leg muscles and both sides of her pelvis bone.



It was a letdown after clinging to hope for a couple of months like we did,
but those were a nice couple of months.



Please keep her in your prayers.



Best from,



Carolyn

Re: dual source headsets, where to get?

Mario
 

what I do when the need arises is to use a single earpiece headset (headphone plus a built in mic) connected to the phone and one earbud plugged into the computer. now I'd be interested in the adaptor the engineer comes up with, as I'd like to have a more elegant headpiece in attempt to eliminate all the wires.
