Re: grammatical issues

 

I have to "side with" Cindy in this specific situation.

While I find some of Karim's messages a bit difficult to decipher I also recognize that we have English as a Second Language (ESL) at play here.  Most speakers (and/or writers) of English when it's their second language probably do much better than I would in their first language, no matter what that first language might be.

The above being said, it is legitimate to point out to Karim that tacking the same request, multiple times, on to threads where it has no pertinence is just poor manners.  It's not difficult to create a new thread for a given request.  It's also incumbent on a person asking for information anywhere to look through the responses that have already been posted.  The question regarding where one can download JAWS 17 from has been answered multiple times now, on a couple of the unrelated threads where it's been asked, but the same question from the same questioner keeps coming up.  You can lead a horse to water . . .

HiBill & Douglas,
Hopefully this article will possibly help with your queries.
*Hacking Firefox: The secrets of about:config*
**
*Ever since its debut, Firefox has garnered a reputation for being an
enormously customizable program, both through its add-on architecture
and its internal
settings. In fact, many of Firefox's settings aren't exposed through
the
Tools > Options menu; the only way to change them is to edit them
manually. In
this article, we'll explore some of the most useful Firefox settings
that you can change on your own and that aren't normally available
through the program's
graphical interface. *
*The closest analogy to how Firefox manages its internal settings is
the
Windows Registry. Each setting, or preference, is given a name and
stored as a string
(text), integer (number) or Boolean (true/false) value. However,
Firefox
doesn't keep its settings in the registry, but in a file called
prefs.js. You
can edit prefs.js directly, but it's often easier to change the
settings
through the browser window.*
*Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter, and you'll see
all the settings currently enumerated in prefs.js, listed in
alphabetical order. To
narrow down the hundreds of configuration preferences to just the few
you need, type a search term into the Filter: bar. (Click the Show All
button or
just clear the Filter: bar to get the full list back again.)*
*The about:config page.
clear.gif
The about:config page. (
Click for larger view.)*
*To edit a preference, double-click on the name and you'll be prompted
for the new value. If you double-click on an entry that has a Boolean
value, it'll
just switch from true to false or vice versa; double-click again to
revert to the original setting. Not all changes take effect
immediately,
so if you
want to be absolutely certain a given change is in effect, be sure to
close and reopen Firefox after making a change.*
*Editing a preference.
clear.gif
Editing a preference. (
Click for larger view.)*
*Note that not every setting in about:config exists by default. Some of
them have to be created manually. If you want to add a new preference,
right-click
somewhere on the page and select New, then select the type of item to
create (String, Integer or Boolean) and supply the name and value.*
*Before you begin *
*clear.gif*
*Here are a few caveats to keep in mind as you explore and tweak: *
*Not everyone will get the same benefits by enabling these tweaks. This
is especially true for changing the network settings. If you habitually
visit sites
that don't allow a large number of connections per client, for
instance,
you won't see much benefit from raising the number of connections per
server.*
*Some hacks may have a limited shelf life. With each successive release
of Firefox, the need for tweaking any of the performance-related config
settings
(like the network settings) may dwindle as Firefox becomes more
self-tuning based on feedback from real-world usage scenarios. In
short,
what works now
may not always work in the future -- and that might not be a bad
thing.*
*clear.gif*
*Hacking Firefox*
*The secrets of about:config*
*clear.gif
list of 6 items
• Before you begin
• Speed up page display
• Have tabbed browsing your way
• Make the user interface behave
• Hack network connections
• Stop memory hogging
list end
clear.gif *
*Keep a log of everything you change, or make backups. If you tweak
something now and notice bizarre activity in a week, you'll want to be
able to track
back to what was altered and undo it. Firefox does show which
about:config changes have been set manually, but this isn't always the
most accurate way
to find out what you changed. *
*To make a backup of your preferences in Firefox, just make a copy of
the file prefs.js, which is kept in your Firefox profile folder. If you
mess something
up, you can always copy this file back in. (Be sure to shut down
Firefox
before making a copy of prefs.js or moving a copy back into the profile
folder!)*
*In Windows XP, the profile folder is*
*\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application
Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile ID>.default\*
*In Windows Vista, this folder is*
*\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile
ID>.default\*
*Note that Application Data and AppData are hidden folders by default,
so they may not show up unless you force Explorer to show hidden
objects. (Open the
Control Panel, double-click Folder Options, select the View tab, select
"Show hidden files and folders" and click OK.)*
*In Mac OS X, the profile folder is*
*<username>/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile
ID>.default/*
*and in Linux it's*
*~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile ID>.default/*
*but on those platforms it's usually quicker simply to search for
prefs.js.*
*Alternatively, you can use the handy
Firefox Extension Backup Extension
(FEBE). It backs up not only the prefs.js file but just about every
other thing in Firefox -- extensions, themes, cookies, form history and
so on.*

i'm afraid if i refresh firefox i may lose the add-ons that allow me to
hear my favorite stations and other audio sites; this is the last thing
i want to do at this time of year, as i might miss my holiday stuff.
would i have to install each add-on one by one, including webvisum,
flash, vlc and other embedded players, etc.? or would they all install
automatically upon refreshing the browser?

Re: grammatical issues

Cindy Ray <cindyray@...>
 

I think that what I am saying is off topic, but I think this is rude and intolerant behavior on the part of American English speaking people. First off, English is clearly a second language for Karim, who may well be a male. It is possible that this person is struggling to learn the language. I can't see the treatment of this person being helpful in any way. We can all figure out what Karim wants if carefully reading the messages. If we can't, then let someone else do it.
Respectfully,

may i ask what language or dialect karim uses, or if she knows the correct spellings of english words? perhaps she could get a dictionary of english words, or take a course in grammar and spelling. her messages would be easier to understand if she learns the correct spelling of words, or someone could interpret for her. thanks.

i'm afraid if i refresh firefox i may lose the add-ons that allow

would i have to install each add-on one by one, including

they all install automatically upon refreshing the browser?

grammatical issues

douglas richard dexheimer
 

may i ask what language or dialect karim uses, or if she knows the correct spellings of english words? perhaps she could get a dictionary of english words, or take a course in grammar and spelling. her messages would be easier to understand if she learns the correct spelling of words, or someone could interpret for her. thanks.

there a way to downgrade firefox to the version before the current 43.0,

to become unworkable, what browser is most accessible with nvda or jaws?
i can't seem to add new bookmarks in chrome, and the screen keeps

HiBill & Douglas,
Hopefully this article will possibly help with your queries.
*Hacking Firefox: The secrets of about:config*
**
*Ever since its debut, Firefox has garnered a reputation for being an
enormously customizable program, both through its add-on architecture
and its internal
settings. In fact, many of Firefox's settings aren't exposed through
the
Tools > Options menu; the only way to change them is to edit them
manually. In
this article, we'll explore some of the most useful Firefox settings
that you can change on your own and that aren't normally available
through the program's
graphical interface. *
*The closest analogy to how Firefox manages its internal settings is
the
Windows Registry. Each setting, or preference, is given a name and
stored as a string
(text), integer (number) or Boolean (true/false) value. However,
Firefox
doesn't keep its settings in the registry, but in a file called
prefs.js. You
can edit prefs.js directly, but it's often easier to change the
settings
through the browser window.*
*Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter, and you'll see
all the settings currently enumerated in prefs.js, listed in
alphabetical order. To
narrow down the hundreds of configuration preferences to just the few
you need, type a search term into the Filter: bar. (Click the Show All
button or
just clear the Filter: bar to get the full list back again.)*
*The about:config page.
clear.gif
The about:config page. (
Click for larger view.)*
*To edit a preference, double-click on the name and you'll be prompted
for the new value. If you double-click on an entry that has a Boolean
value, it'll
just switch from true to false or vice versa; double-click again to
revert to the original setting. Not all changes take effect
immediately,
so if you
want to be absolutely certain a given change is in effect, be sure to
close and reopen Firefox after making a change.*
*Editing a preference.

you won't see much benefit from raising the number of connections per

*Some hacks may have a limited shelf life. With each successive release

there a way to downgrade firefox to the version before the current 43.0,

i can't seem to add new bookmarks in chrome, and the screen keeps

ie tends to freeze or become unresponsive, and some audio sites that

HiBill & Douglas,
Hopefully this article will possibly help with your queries.
*Hacking Firefox: The secrets of about:config*
**
*Ever since its debut, Firefox has garnered a reputation for being an
enormously customizable program, both through its add-on architecture
and its internal
settings. In fact, many of Firefox's settings aren't exposed through
the
Tools > Options menu; the only way to change them is to edit them
manually. In
this article, we'll explore some of the most useful Firefox settings
that you can change on your own and that aren't normally available
through the program's
graphical interface. *
*The closest analogy to how Firefox manages its internal settings is
the
Windows Registry. Each setting, or preference, is given a name and
stored as a string
(text), integer (number) or Boolean (true/false) value. However,
Firefox
doesn't keep its settings in the registry, but in a file called
prefs.js. You
can edit prefs.js directly, but it's often easier to change the
settings
through the browser window.*
*Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter, and you'll see
all the settings currently enumerated in prefs.js, listed in
alphabetical order. To
narrow down the hundreds of configuration preferences to just the few
you need, type a search term into the Filter: bar. (Click the Show All
button or
just clear the Filter: bar to get the full list back again.)*
*The about:config page.
clear.gif
The about:config page. (
Click for larger view.)*
*To edit a preference, double-click on the name and you'll be prompted
for the new value. If you double-click on an entry that has a Boolean
value, it'll
just switch from true to false or vice versa; double-click again to
revert to the original setting. Not all changes take effect
immediately,
so if you
want to be absolutely certain a given change is in effect, be sure to
close and reopen Firefox after making a change.*
*Editing a preference.
clear.gif
Editing a preference. (
Click for larger view.)*
*Note that not every setting in about:config exists by default. Some of
them have to be created manually. If you want to add a new preference,
right-click
somewhere on the page and select New, then select the type of item to
create (String, Integer or Boolean) and supply the name and value.*
*Before you begin *
*clear.gif*
*Here are a few caveats to keep in mind as you explore and tweak: *
*Not everyone will get the same benefits by enabling these tweaks. This
is especially true for changing the network settings. If you habitually
visit sites
that don't allow a large number of connections per client, for
instance,
you won't see much benefit from raising the number of connections per
server.*
*Some hacks may have a limited shelf life. With each successive release
of Firefox, the need for tweaking any of the performance-related config
settings
(like the network settings) may dwindle as Firefox becomes more
self-tuning based on feedback from real-world usage scenarios. In
short,
what works now
may not always work in the future -- and that might not be a bad
thing.*
*clear.gif*
*Hacking Firefox*
*The secrets of about:config*
*clear.gif
list of 6 items
• Before you begin
• Speed up page display
• Have tabbed browsing your way
• Make the user interface behave
• Hack network connections
• Stop memory hogging
list end
clear.gif *
*Keep a log of everything you change, or make backups. If you tweak
something now and notice bizarre activity in a week, you'll want to be
able to track
back to what was altered and undo it. Firefox does show which
about:config changes have been set manually, but this isn't always the
most accurate way
to find out what you changed. *
*To make a backup of your preferences in Firefox, just make a copy of
the file prefs.js, which is kept in your Firefox profile folder. If you
mess something
up, you can always copy this file back in. (Be sure to shut down
Firefox
before making a copy of prefs.js or moving a copy back into the profile
folder!)*
*In Windows XP, the profile folder is*
*\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application
Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile ID>.default\*
*In Windows Vista, this folder is*
*\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile
ID>.default\*
*Note that Application Data and AppData are hidden folders by default,
so they may not show up unless you force Explorer to show hidden
objects. (Open the
Control Panel, double-click Folder Options, select the View tab, select
"Show hidden files and folders" and click OK.)*
*In Mac OS X, the profile folder is*
*<username>/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile
ID>.default/*
*and in Linux it's*
*~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile ID>.default/*
*but on those platforms it's usually quicker simply to search for
prefs.js.*
*Alternatively, you can use the handy
Firefox Extension Backup Extension
(FEBE). It backs up not only the prefs.js file but just about every
other thing in Firefox -- extensions, themes, cookies, form history and
so on.*

i'm afraid if i refresh firefox i may lose the add-ons that allow me to
hear my favorite stations and other audio sites; this is the last thing
i want to do at this time of year, as i might miss my holiday stuff.
would i have to install each add-on one by one, including webvisum,
flash, vlc and other embedded players, etc.? or would they all install
automatically upon refreshing the browser?

Re: With latest JAWS 16, is computer freezing still using alt tab with Adobe?

Russell Solowoniuk
 

Hi,

When I first updated to Jaws 17 at work the issue of my computer locking up when alt tabbing from a PDF was still there, however, in the past week or two, the problem seems to have been fixed. I’m not quite sure how or why it’s not happening any longer, but I’m sure glad.  Not sure if a Jaws update or an Adobe update fixed the issue. I just noticed that all of a sudden the problem went away.

HTH!

Thank you. 


Links for latest JAWS Release

 

Karim Sidi has tagged an unrelated request for this information on to several earlier threads, which is more than a bit annoying.

Links for any of the latest versions of any Freedom Scientific product can be found in the Downloads section of the Freedom Scientific website.  For JAWS specifically that is the JAWS Download page.

This will not do you much good unless your current license allows you to upgrade to a given release of JAWS.  I have some clients on JAWS 15 and that's where their upgrade limit on their original license ended.  Others have upgrade privileges through JAWS 18, which doesn't even exist yet.

You can, of course, download the later versions in demo form, but that doesn't help you at all when the demo period runs out, unless you're certain you can uninstall the demo and reinstall the version that you are legally licensed to use.

Re: can sumwane get jaws 17 link up dat for me?

douglas richard dexheimer
 

did you reply to my message about plugins by mistake? you could have just generated a new message if this is a different topic. my current jaws license only made me eligible for jaws 13 or earlier. also could you try to check your spelling when writing, to avoid confusion? thanks.

HiBill & Douglas,
Hopefully this article will possibly help with your queries.
*Hacking Firefox: The secrets of about:config*
**
*Ever since its debut, Firefox has garnered a reputation for being an
enormously customizable program, both through its add-on architecture
and its internal
settings. In fact, many of Firefox's settings aren't exposed through the
Tools > Options menu; the only way to change them is to edit them
manually. In
this article, we'll explore some of the most useful Firefox settings
that you can change on your own and that aren't normally available
through the program's
graphical interface. *
*The closest analogy to how Firefox manages its internal settings is the
Windows Registry. Each setting, or preference, is given a name and
stored as a string
(text), integer (number) or Boolean (true/false) value. However, Firefox
doesn't keep its settings in the registry, but in a file called
prefs.js. You
can edit prefs.js directly, but it's often easier to change the settings
through the browser window.*
*Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter, and you'll see
all the settings currently enumerated in prefs.js, listed in
alphabetical order. To
narrow down the hundreds of configuration preferences to just the few
you need, type a search term into the Filter: bar. (Click the Show All
button or
just clear the Filter: bar to get the full list back again.)*
*The about:config page.
clear.gif
The about:config page. (
Click for larger view.)*
*To edit a preference, double-click on the name and you'll be prompted
for the new value. If you double-click on an entry that has a Boolean
value, it'll
just switch from true to false or vice versa; double-click again to
revert to the original setting. Not all changes take effect immediately,
so if you
want to be absolutely certain a given change is in effect, be sure to
close and reopen Firefox after making a change.*
*Editing a preference.
clear.gif
Editing a preference. (
Click for larger view.)*
*Note that not every setting in about:config exists by default. Some of
them have to be created manually. If you want to add a new preference,
right-click
somewhere on the page and select New, then select the type of item to
create (String, Integer or Boolean) and supply the name and value.*
*Before you begin *
*clear.gif*
*Here are a few caveats to keep in mind as you explore and tweak: *
*Not everyone will get the same benefits by enabling these tweaks. This
is especially true for changing the network settings. If you habitually
visit sites
that don't allow a large number of connections per client, for instance,
you won't see much benefit from raising the number of connections per
server.*
*Some hacks may have a limited shelf life. With each successive release
of Firefox, the need for tweaking any of the performance-related config
settings
(like the network settings) may dwindle as Firefox becomes more
self-tuning based on feedback from real-world usage scenarios. In short,
what works now
may not always work in the future -- and that might not be a bad thing.*
*clear.gif*
*Hacking Firefox*
*The secrets of about:config*
*clear.gif
list of 6 items
• Before you begin
• Speed up page display
• Have tabbed browsing your way
• Make the user interface behave
• Hack network connections
• Stop memory hogging
list end
clear.gif *
*Keep a log of everything you change, or make backups. If you tweak
something now and notice bizarre activity in a week, you'll want to be
able to track
back to what was altered and undo it. Firefox does show which
about:config changes have been set manually, but this isn't always the
most accurate way
to find out what you changed. *
*To make a backup of your preferences in Firefox, just make a copy of
the file prefs.js, which is kept in your Firefox profile folder. If you
mess something
up, you can always copy this file back in. (Be sure to shut down Firefox
before making a copy of prefs.js or moving a copy back into the profile
folder!)*
*In Windows XP, the profile folder is*
*\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application
Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile ID>.default\*
*In Windows Vista, this folder is*
*\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile
ID>.default\*
*Note that Application Data and AppData are hidden folders by default,
so they may not show up unless you force Explorer to show hidden
objects. (Open the
Control Panel, double-click Folder Options, select the View tab, select
"Show hidden files and folders" and click OK.)*
*In Mac OS X, the profile folder is*
*<username>/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile
ID>.default/*
*and in Linux it's*
*~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile ID>.default/*
*but on those platforms it's usually quicker simply to search for
prefs.js.*
*Alternatively, you can use the handy
Firefox Extension Backup Extension
(FEBE). It backs up not only the prefs.js file but just about every
other thing in Firefox -- extensions, themes, cookies, form history and
so on.*

i'm afraid if i refresh firefox i may lose the add-ons that allow me to
hear my favorite stations and other audio sites; this is the last thing
i want to do at this time of year, as i might miss my holiday stuff.
would i have to install each add-on one by one, including webvisum,
flash, vlc and other embedded players, etc.? or would they all install
automatically upon refreshing the browser?

*Hacking Firefox: The secrets of about:config*
**
*Ever since its debut, Firefox has garnered a reputation for being an
enormously customizable program, both through its add-on architecture
and its internal
settings. In fact, many of Firefox's settings aren't exposed through the
Tools > Options menu; the only way to change them is to edit them
manually. In
this article, we'll explore some of the most useful Firefox settings
that you can change on your own and that aren't normally available
through the program's
graphical interface. *
*The closest analogy to how Firefox manages its internal settings is the
Windows Registry. Each setting, or preference, is given a name and
stored as a string
(text), integer (number) or Boolean (true/false) value. However, Firefox
doesn't keep its settings in the registry, but in a file called
prefs.js. You
can edit prefs.js directly, but it's often easier to change the settings
through the browser window.*
*Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter, and you'll see
all the settings currently enumerated in prefs.js, listed in
alphabetical order. To
narrow down the hundreds of configuration preferences to just the few
you need, type a search term into the Filter: bar. (Click the Show All
button or
just clear the Filter: bar to get the full list back again.)*
*The about:config page.

The about:config page. (
Click for larger view.)*
*To edit a preference, double-click on the name and you'll be prompted
for the new value. If you double-click on an entry that has a Boolean
value, it'll
just switch from true to false or vice versa; double-click again to
revert to the original setting. Not all changes take effect immediately,
so if you
want to be absolutely certain a given change is in effect, be sure to
close and reopen Firefox after making a change.*
*Editing a preference.

Click for larger view.)*
*Note that not every setting in about:config exists by default. Some of
them have to be created manually. If you want to add a new preference,
right-click
somewhere on the page and select New, then select the type of item to
create (String, Integer or Boolean) and supply the name and value.*
*Before you begin *
*clear.gif*
*Here are a few caveats to keep in mind as you explore and tweak: *
*Not everyone will get the same benefits by enabling these tweaks. This
is especially true for changing the network settings. If you habitually
visit sites
that don't allow a large number of connections per client, for instance,
you won't see much benefit from raising the number of connections per
server.*
*Some hacks may have a limited shelf life. With each successive release
of Firefox, the need for tweaking any of the performance-related config
settings
(like the network settings) may dwindle as Firefox becomes more
self-tuning based on feedback from real-world usage scenarios. In short,
what works now
may not always work in the future -- and that might not be a bad thing.*

*Keep a log of everything you change, or make backups. If you tweak
something now and notice bizarre activity in a week, you'll want to be
able to track
back to what was altered and undo it. Firefox does show which
about:config changes have been set manually, but this isn't always the
most accurate way
to find out what you changed. *
*To make a backup of your preferences in Firefox, just make a copy of
the file prefs.js, which is kept in your Firefox profile folder. If you
mess something
up, you can always copy this file back in. (Be sure to shut down Firefox
before making a copy of prefs.js or moving a copy back into the profile
folder!)*
*In Windows XP, the profile folder is*
*\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application
Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile ID>.default\*
*In Windows Vista, this folder is*
*\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile

*Note that Application Data and AppData are hidden folders by default,
so they may not show up unless you force Explorer to show hidden
objects. (Open the
Control Panel, double-click Folder Options, select the View tab, select
"Show hidden files and folders" and click OK.)*
*In Mac OS X, the profile folder is*
*<username>/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile
ID>.default/*
*and in Linux it's*
*~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile ID>.default/*
*but on those platforms it's usually quicker simply to search for
prefs.js.*
*Alternatively, you can use the handy

other thing in Firefox -- extensions, themes, cookies, form history and
so on.*

i'm afraid if i refresh firefox i may lose the add-ons that allow me to

would i have to install each add-on one by one, including webvisum,

Re: problems with firefox plugins and sites using flash

douglas richard dexheimer
 

i tried refreshing firefox and changing some about:config settings; but while most of the sites using flash were resolved, i can't seem to fix this particular one:
http://www.rezonline.org/
no matter what i change in the config settings, including disable protected mode, this message about adobe flash crashing persists, and no audio is heard. what config changes do i need to make this site work again? also the webvisum plugin got disabled after refreshing firefox and changing the xpinstall "required" settings from true to false. is there a way to downgrade firefox to the version before the current 43.0, so things work normally like before december 16th? if firefox is soon to become unworkable, what browser is most accessible with nvda or jaws? i can't seem to add new bookmarks in chrome, and the screen keeps jumping to an empty window and nvda keeps saying "unknown, unknown..." ie tends to freeze or become unresponsive, and some audio sites that stream in chrome or ff don't stream in ie. thanks for your help.

HiBill & Douglas,
Hopefully this article will possibly help with your queries.
*Hacking Firefox: The secrets of about:config*
**
*Ever since its debut, Firefox has garnered a reputation for being an
enormously customizable program, both through its add-on architecture
and its internal
settings. In fact, many of Firefox's settings aren't exposed through the
Tools > Options menu; the only way to change them is to edit them
manually. In
this article, we'll explore some of the most useful Firefox settings
that you can change on your own and that aren't normally available
through the program's
graphical interface. *
*The closest analogy to how Firefox manages its internal settings is the
Windows Registry. Each setting, or preference, is given a name and
stored as a string
(text), integer (number) or Boolean (true/false) value. However, Firefox
doesn't keep its settings in the registry, but in a file called
prefs.js. You
can edit prefs.js directly, but it's often easier to change the settings
through the browser window.*
*Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter, and you'll see
all the settings currently enumerated in prefs.js, listed in
alphabetical order. To
narrow down the hundreds of configuration preferences to just the few
you need, type a search term into the Filter: bar. (Click the Show All
button or
just clear the Filter: bar to get the full list back again.)*
*The about:config page.
clear.gif
The about:config page. (
Click for larger view.)*
*To edit a preference, double-click on the name and you'll be prompted
for the new value. If you double-click on an entry that has a Boolean
value, it'll
just switch from true to false or vice versa; double-click again to
revert to the original setting. Not all changes take effect immediately,
so if you
want to be absolutely certain a given change is in effect, be sure to
close and reopen Firefox after making a change.*
*Editing a preference.
clear.gif
Editing a preference. (
Click for larger view.)*
*Note that not every setting in about:config exists by default. Some of
them have to be created manually. If you want to add a new preference,
right-click
somewhere on the page and select New, then select the type of item to
create (String, Integer or Boolean) and supply the name and value.*
*Before you begin *
*clear.gif*
*Here are a few caveats to keep in mind as you explore and tweak: *
*Not everyone will get the same benefits by enabling these tweaks. This
is especially true for changing the network settings. If you habitually
visit sites
that don't allow a large number of connections per client, for instance,
you won't see much benefit from raising the number of connections per
server.*
*Some hacks may have a limited shelf life. With each successive release
of Firefox, the need for tweaking any of the performance-related config
settings
(like the network settings) may dwindle as Firefox becomes more
self-tuning based on feedback from real-world usage scenarios. In short,
what works now
may not always work in the future -- and that might not be a bad thing.*
*clear.gif*
*Hacking Firefox*
*The secrets of about:config*
*clear.gif
list of 6 items
• Before you begin
• Speed up page display
• Have tabbed browsing your way
• Make the user interface behave
• Hack network connections
• Stop memory hogging
list end
clear.gif *
*Keep a log of everything you change, or make backups. If you tweak
something now and notice bizarre activity in a week, you'll want to be
able to track
back to what was altered and undo it. Firefox does show which
about:config changes have been set manually, but this isn't always the
most accurate way
to find out what you changed. *
*To make a backup of your preferences in Firefox, just make a copy of
the file prefs.js, which is kept in your Firefox profile folder. If you
mess something
up, you can always copy this file back in. (Be sure to shut down Firefox
before making a copy of prefs.js or moving a copy back into the profile
folder!)*
*In Windows XP, the profile folder is*
*\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application
Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile ID>.default\*
*In Windows Vista, this folder is*
*\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile
ID>.default\*
*Note that Application Data and AppData are hidden folders by default,
so they may not show up unless you force Explorer to show hidden
objects. (Open the
Control Panel, double-click Folder Options, select the View tab, select
"Show hidden files and folders" and click OK.)*
*In Mac OS X, the profile folder is*
*<username>/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile
ID>.default/*
*and in Linux it's*
*~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile ID>.default/*
*but on those platforms it's usually quicker simply to search for prefs.js.*
*Alternatively, you can use the handy
Firefox Extension Backup Extension
(FEBE). It backs up not only the prefs.js file but just about every
other thing in Firefox -- extensions, themes, cookies, form history and
so on.*

*Take care.

i'm afraid if i refresh firefox i may lose the add-ons that allow me to
hear my favorite stations and other audio sites; this is the last thing
i want to do at this time of year, as i might miss my holiday stuff.
would i have to install each add-on one by one, including webvisum,
flash, vlc and other embedded players, etc.? or would they all install
automatically upon refreshing the browser?

With latest JAWS 16, is computer freezing still using alt tab with Adobe?

Tusing <ptusing@...>
 

Hi,

Are computer freezes  still happening

With latest JAWS 16 and 17 with Adobe using alt + tab?

 

Thank you.

Glad I could help.  Things changed a bit with the introduction of Windows 8, that's for sure!

Re: CONFUSED! Adobe Reader XI seems to do OCR automatically?

 

I'll jump in here hoping that what I add will make some sense since the participants so far clearly have a good grasp of the last two releases of Adobe Reader and the OCR capabilities of JAWS.

Since many of the PDF files that my clients use are of fairly substantial page count, and they need to be referenced again and again, having to do OCR processing more than once can really slow their lives down.  I do not know of any version of Adobe Reader (the free versions) that has any built in OCR capability.  This is why I have introduced them to PDF-XChange Viewer (this link is the direct download link for the ZIP file used to install that software).  While it does not consistently "play well" with JAWS in all respects, it is simple to use the built in OCR scanning function to take a PDF that was originally scanned as an image file, create a text layer from the images, and save it back to the original PDF file as a unit.  Then you can open it as many times as you like in the future without needing to go through any OCR process again.  Since I know that JAWS is written to "play well" with specific programs I encourage them to use Adobe Reader to actually do their reading of the PDF files that they do OCR processing on and save with PDF-XChange Viewer.

What follows are the step-by-step instructions that I give to my clients who need to have the capability to do permanent OCR on PDFs they'll be referring to repeatedly with PDF-XChange Viewer:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PDF-XChange Viewer

Used when you receive a PDF that was originally scanned without Optical Character Recognition.  For reading stick to Adobe Reader.

1.     Open PDF-XChange Viewer from your start menu or desktop, wherever you chose to create the shortcut(s).

2.     ALT+F, O  Open a file, you’ll need to know where it is and navigate there in the Open Dialog, which is very much like Windows Explorer.

3.     CTRL+SHIFT+C  Perform optical character recognition on the file.  This will be quick for small files, 20 pages or less, but will take some time for very large files, hundreds of pages.  Listen for the process to complete.

4.     ALT+F, S  Save the file over itself with the OCR text now included.  If you wish to save the file under a different name and keep the original use ALT+F, A Save As to do this instead.

You don't have to uninstall XI to install DC. It's like upgrading any other software from older to newer versions. The upgrade is fairly seemless. I'm surprised JAWS hasn't been screaming at you to do the upgrade; it yells at me about five minutes after I turn my computer on.

One caution: With Adobe Reader XI, if you open a large document, JAWS will tell you that the document is being processed. With DC, if the document is large, you just hear "blank" when you up or down arrow. It doesn't tell you the document is doing anything, so you might be tempted to give up with DC. Wait it out though, or try pressing Control A (select all) as this sometimes helps. I just find that JAWS does not announce that the document is processing with DC the way it did with XI.

Hello,

I have two computers, with Adobe Reader DC on one and XI on the other. The first computer has Windows 10 Home, upgraded from Windows 7 and the second has Windows 10 Pro with a fresh install.
I tried a test on the two using the same 4 PDF image files. These files were not scanned by my scanner.

First test using Adobe Reader XI
after getting the "alert, empty document", I instructed JAWS to start the OCR, with the 'd' document option. Nothing happened.  I repeated this test. a few times.

I can get OCR conversion to work using the "w" window option. This came up with the JAWS cursor.

If I open my scanned PDF file, the OCR is performed automatically even when the scanner is disconnected.


Second test using Adobe Reader DC
On my DC computer, each of these PDF image files gave me the "alert, empty document" message. JAWS will convert the entire document to text.


Conclusion
XI does not seem to allow JAWS 17 to do an OCR conversion on an entire PDF image document. This is using Windows 10 Pro and JAWS 17.

Why the XI does the OCR conversion automatically on my scanned image, I will have to investigate further. Maybe the scanner has its own OCR.

The DC does allow JAWS to do the OCR on the entire document.

Maybe I will have to uninstall the XI and install the DC version of Adobe Reader.

Think of DC as more like Adobe Reader XII (12) if they hadn't changed the name, with the newer version integrating features from Adobe's document cloud.

So perhaps JAWS versions newer than 15 are helping you convert those scans. With JAWS 15 and Windows 7, neither DC or XI will do this for me automatically.

What is the difference between adobe XI and DC?

Is there a difference between Adobe Reader and Acrobat Reader?

Maybe there is more than one Adobe Reader, and I don’t know which is which.


Any clarification will be appreciated. Thanks.

how to start jaws without speech

Hello All,

Based upon some private e-mail I've received recently it appears
that some of my responses on prior threads are "hard to follow" because they
don't contain all the quoted material that would normally be contained were
one interacting with the group through e-mail.

I've been using the web interface for the JAWS for Windows Support
List via the groups.io site, here, and not via e-mail. When you reply via
the online forum it does not automatically quote the message you're
responding to nor any prior responses to it.

While I intend to continue to use the web interface for my own
convenience, I'm wondering if I should include a short quotation of the
question or response to a question I'm responding to at the top of my posts
to make it easier to follow exactly who and what I'm responding to?

I'd like to make these offerings as coherent as possible and as
easy-to-follow as possible, so any suggestions will be welcome.

I would like assistance with reading .brf files with jaws, but maybe
more people would know the answer to this question.

At work I use jaws with a focus 40: a regular focus, not the focus
blue. sometimes Jaws freezes when I am taking calls as a customer
service rep. And when this happens and I have to restart, the customer
hears Jaws say "jaws for windows is ready" and anything else it says
until I turn off speech and go to braille alone.

How do I set Jaws to not speak when I turn it on via the alt control j
shortcut? By default I want Jaws to run without speech. How do I do
that? It was fairly simple in the early versions like Jaws five, six,
etc. Now I use jaws 14 and windows 7 at work.

Much appreciated,

Ryan Coverdell


Re: CONFUSED! Adobe Reader XI seems to do OCR automatically?

Gudrun Brunot
 

Hi Brian: No, you are not mistaken: JAWS does not store OCR-generated text with Adobe XI after you close the file, the recognition has to be done again the next time you open the file. Imagine that when there's a job you've got to estimate to see if you can do the translation, and it's 250 pages... I didn't think OCR-generated text layers were stored in Adobe DC either. Am I wrong?

I had an experience with Exchange Viewer recently: I'm probably neglecting to do something important, so I'm thankful for any pointer. I was trying to open a w9 form that had items to fill in. I had a reader present, because I didn't know the keystroke to locate the OCR button. After the OCR had done its thing, there wasn't any text that I could read, neither before nor after OCR was completed. In Adobe DC, I could read the text fields, but not fill in the info. I filled out the form by turning off JAWS and tabbing to the fields with my reader telling me where I'd landed. I could read with Adobe DC after the form was filled in, but not with Exchange Viewer. What am I missing?

Peter,

I can confirm what Brad Martin has said in all regards. I have several clients using JAWS 15 with Adobe Reader XI and it does not do any OCR conversion automatically. In fact, I recently posted a thread about an alternative to Adobe Reader, Tracker Software's PDF-XChange Viewer, that does have built-in OCR that I have clients use when they want their OCR to be stored permanently with the PDF in question.

I was under the impression that JAWS OCR did not store the text layer that it creates for a given PDF for future use and that you have to redo the JAWS OCR any time you open that file again. Am I mistaken?

Just to add to what's been offered, there is also the add-on, Download Status Bar 12.3.0.1 by Szalgiris, that's apparently available for pretty much every major variant on Firefox out there.  To call it feature rich is an understatement, as it appears to let you configure virtually any and every aspect of downloading, including choosing a sound of your choice for notification when the download completes.  I doubt that anyone will use most of its features, but the one you are looking for is included among them.
