Mike:

This actually seems a lot easier than finding the safely remove option in
the system tray, so I will give it a try.

Thanks very much!

Tom, I do use the eject option when removing a USB device like a flash drive
or an external hard drive. On my Windows operating system, if you go to the
actual device under your computer folder, and then press your Apps key, you
can scroll down to the eject option. You should be able to remove it that
way, if you don't see the option to remove it in your system tray. If you
press enter on the eject option, you should hear JAWS tell you that it is
safe to remove the device after a few seconds. Hope this helps!

Re: keystroke in outlook 2010 to add sender to contacts?

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Cool, neat trick. Thanks for posting it.

BTW, I just went through the keyboard manager for Outlook 2010 and didn't
see a hotkey for adding sender to contacts, so I don't think there is a way
to do this with a single keystroke in stock JAWS.

Best option so far:
1. Alt+1 twice quickly to move to the "from" field.
2. Open context menu, then select "add sender to outlook contacts".

Paul,

You can go right into the "To" field by holding down the alt key and
pressing
3 (number row above the letters) twice quickly. Each of the other numbers
1
through 6 take you into one or other field (1 for "from," etc.).

Re: Visual studio with jaws

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Those are good clarifications, thanks for posting them.

Regarding a more accessible compiler, one option would be to use the Cygwin
package, which provides gcc, gdb, and make: command-line compilers,
debuggers, and project management. This may or may not meet your programming
needs. It's a more linux-like environment. If you need to use Microsoft
packages as part of your programming, then you should probably stick with
Visual Studio. You can use Microsoft's compilers from the command line:
There is nmake.exe for managing projects, and cl.exe is the compiler, etc.
But I don't recall a command line debugger. So if you need to do debugging,
I think Visual Studio is your only option.

Again, you might get more info by posting to the program-l mailing list. I'm
a newbie when it comes to developing software as a blind person (though I've
been doing it as a low vision person for years). Program-l has lots of blind
programming expertise.

My experience is that jaws works very well with the console. You do need
to
go into jaws cursor mode rather than PC, but other than that reviewing
what
is in the console is easy.

One thing to note about Paul's description of how VS runs console
programs, the hit enter to continue bit is only displayed if the program
is
_not_ run in the debugger. If you just use the debugger but don't have a
breakpoint then the program will run and then exit and the console will go
away.

To deal with that you can either add a breakpoint at the end of main or
call
system("pause") yourself before returning from main.

It sounds as though your system tray is set to hide some icons. Below are instructions for how to reveal them in Windows 7. I believe they originated with David Bailes, and I added notes from my own experience when I went through the process some years ago.

Open start menu properties with Win key, escape, alt-enter.

In the first dialog, tab to and press the Notification Area Customize button. I found that the list of options appears when I shit-tabbed once.

The first item there is always turn on all icons. I pressed the spacebar on it, then tabbed to Okay.

I tried this. After entering Insert F11, I have only 4 choices to arrow to.
They are Get Windows 10, Solve PC Issues, Network 5 Internet Access and

So, will the instructions not work for JAWS 14?

Re: Safely Remove Hardware question

by just yanking the USB flash drive from it's port when the job is done can suffer electrical instabilities over time, eventually shortening it's lifespan. it can also, and probably will, cause premature loss of data and/or corruption.
always use the "safely remove" icon in the notification area/system tray.

I've only used it once, and found it irritating and useless. When I copy or
paste to a USB Thumb drive, I just wait until I'm able to navigate through
the list of files on that drive, and then I know I can pull it out.

If you're using an external disc or hard drive, you might want to make sure
that there are no programs running that are accessing the drive before
disconnecting -- that might be the one and only time I'd consider using the
feature. Use JAWS+F11 to get to the system tray, arrow to "safe to remove"

Re: Visual studio with jaws

Aqil Sajjad <aqilsajjad@...>
 

Hi Paul:

Thanks for the detailed response. I am indeed using the console. But part of the problem is that I don't know if I am not seeing an output because there is an accessibility issue or if there is something wrong with the way I am using the cout command. In recent years, they have changed the way the iostream header is included. Is there some other compiler that is more accessible than visual studio?

It sounds like you are writing a program in C or C++ and I'm guessing it is
what Visual Studio calls a "console application". If that assumption is
correct, then when you run the program, it opens a console window and
displays all text output in that window. When the program exits, the console
window says "press enter to close the window" or something like that. Before
you press enter to close the window, you should be able to read the text in
the same way as you would with any Windows command shell.

In my experience, Windows command shells are kind of difficult to use with
JAWS. If the amount of text output is small (that is, it all fits in the
console window without scrolling), then you might be able to read it by
virtualizing the window (INSERT + ALT + W). This displays ONLY the text
visible in the command shell, so anything that has scrolled off the top will
not show up in the virtual viewer.

If your application is NOT a console application (that is, it's some kind of
GUI application), then I'm not sure where standard output goes. There might
be a compile option to open a command shell, in which case it would be
displayed there, just like a console application. But I really don't know.

If I remember correctly, there are some JAWS scripts that make Visual Studio
easier to use (hotkeys to examine the value of variables under the debugger
and that sort of thing).

You might consider joining the program-l mailing list, which is for blind
software developers. You might get more help in that list. For information

Re: Safely Remove Hardware question

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

The consequences are that when you remove the drive, you may or may not get a "Delayed Write Failure Notice. This means that the computer failed to write everything to the drive which you sent to it. Windows does not always perform tasks immediately. This is the function of Safely Remove Hardware. It tells Windows
"OK, I am going to remove this hardware, so you should finish any remaining tasks which are specified for that drive."

Failing to do this can have a couple of consequences. First, it can corrupt the entire drive, so that none of the files are visible. Only gibberish symbols will show up in the file list.

The second consequence is that any of the files destined for that drive may not be copied, or may be truncated or shortened because the entire file has not been copied.

Subject: Safely Remove Hardware question


Hello, everyone.



I am sure this may seem pretty elementary to some, but I actually
have gotten varying opinions on the need to use the "safely remove hardware"
option for USB devices such as USB thumb drives, and USB external
hard drives.



So, I have two questions:



1. Is it still necessary to invoke the "safely remove hardware"
option
when using any of these USB devices? I have heard that in later
operating systems like Windows 7, this is not as necessary as it used
to be.

And



2. How does one easily get to the "safely remove hardware" option,
if
it would be a good idea for me to use it?

I am using Windows 7 and Jaws 16 here.



Thank you!



Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan

Yes, That is one way of finding items in the System Tray. But if you want the items to come up as a list, the way links do in Internet Explorer or Firefox when you use JawsKey plus F7, then you must press JawsKey plus F11.

If you want to remove a flash drive, find the appropriate drive letter within Computer, press Applications Key, and Up or Down Arrow to Eject Drive, and press Enter.

Re: data graphing ideas?

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

I'll start by saying I don't know of any off-the-shelf graphing solutions
for visually impaired users. So everything that follows is sort of "what if"
hypothetical stuff, just thinking out loud.

Presenting data to blind and visually impaired users seems like a mostly
uninvestigated area, wide open for new research. There is an annual academic
conference called IEEE Vis: http://ieeevis.org/. Historically, their focus
is to present new research in different ways to visualize data. As far as I
know, they have never bitten off the challenge of presenting data in
non-visual ways. But if you have any pull in the academic community, perhaps
you could get some grad students to research ways to display data
non-visually, with the end-goal of getting their research published through
this conference.

Just thinking off the top of my head, I could imagine a bar chart with items
left-to-right (along the x axis) and values along the y axis. We could use
JAWS to read the value for each item, but instead of just reading numbers,
modulate the JAWS speech pitch in accordance with the value: larger values
would be read with a higher pitch, smaller values with a lower pitch. So,
instead of just hearing a bunch of numbers, you'd hear pitch changes with
each number that would allow the user to immediately place the value
relative to other values. The pitch changes would give you a "picture" of
the values relative to each other.

I'm sure that's a pretty naive approach, but as far as I know, no one has
tried it yet. It might be an interesting challenge for the JAWS scripting
language.

Re: Visual studio with jaws

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

It sounds like you are writing a program in C or C++ and I'm guessing it is
what Visual Studio calls a "console application". If that assumption is
correct, then when you run the program, it opens a console window and
displays all text output in that window. When the program exits, the console
window says "press enter to close the window" or something like that. Before
you press enter to close the window, you should be able to read the text in
the same way as you would with any Windows command shell.

In my experience, Windows command shells are kind of difficult to use with
JAWS. If the amount of text output is small (that is, it all fits in the
console window without scrolling), then you might be able to read it by
virtualizing the window (INSERT + ALT + W). This displays ONLY the text
visible in the command shell, so anything that has scrolled off the top will
not show up in the virtual viewer.

If your application is NOT a console application (that is, it's some kind of
GUI application), then I'm not sure where standard output goes. There might
be a compile option to open a command shell, in which case it would be
displayed there, just like a console application. But I really don't know.

If I remember correctly, there are some JAWS scripts that make Visual Studio
easier to use (hotkeys to examine the value of variables under the debugger
and that sort of thing).

You might consider joining the program-l mailing list, which is for blind
software developers. You might get more help in that list. For information
about that list, send email to program-l-request@freelists.org with the
subject "faq" and you should get a reply with info about subscribing, etc.

I hope this helps.
-Paul

I just installed visual studio 2010 and am using it with Jaws. When I run
the
program, I get some lines telling me that the program has successfully
run,
but I don't see the text I designed the program to print on the screen. I
am
not sure if this is an issue of properly accessing the output window with
jaws or if it is an issue with how I am using the cout and iostream
commands. Should the text come out in the same wwindow as the output
that gives the errors and other such stuff about how the program ran? Is
there anyone here who is familiar with the use of visual studio with jaws
and can help?

Re: Accessible way of listening to NFL games?

Daniel McBride
 

Virtual Knight:

Thank you for these links. Your Steelers play Sunday at noon, and I am
looking forward to accessing the game through this link. Below is a
statement from freefootballradio.com.

"If there is a game that you would like to listen to just click on the team.
You will be taken to a list of radio stations that are part of that teams
radio network that have internet broadcast capability. Just click a station
and link up. You may have to try linking to many different stations from
both sides of a match up before you find a station that's streaming. If
there are no stations streaming, thank the conglomerate that is the NFL, you
will have to pay to listen. Sorry."

The Cowboys are broadcast on 105.3 The Fan. The Fan has live streaming,
however, the Listen Live button is disabled for 3 hours prior to kickoff,
during the game and for 3 hours after the game.

However, your post prompted me to call The Fan today. I spoke with the
program director and he advised me that the Cowboys games will be live
stream accessible this year, beginning with the last preseason game. If this
was to trend across the league, perhaps we will have free access to live
broadcasts of all games in the future.

Re: How to Get an "Applications Key" on a Lenovo Laptop?

Soronel Haetir
 

Also, if the keyboard has some key you aren't going to use, you can
employ SharpKeys (https://sharpkeys.codeplex.com/) to remap that other
key.

I have done that with my laptop's print screen key, print screen is
simply something I don't need. It's a little annoying having it in
such a different spot than the normal applications key but I find it
less annoying than shift+f10.
