Hello, everyone.

In a recent post, I believe Adrian said the following:

"Many listers have reported flaws in JAWS 12,
possibly because it is more directed to Windows 7 than XP. ... I still use XP Pro,
and the warnings on this list have convinced me to stay with JAWS 11,
even
though my SMA entitles me to JAWS 12."

The timing for this comment couldn't have been better in my case.

Although this is likely to change soon as my University switches us all completely over to Windows 7, my desktop at work is still an XP machine, and still has Jaws 11. The back-up PC I have at home is an XP machine, and that too has Jaws 11.

So, is the collective wisdom of the group to keep things as they are now on the XP machines, rather than installing Jaws 12 which seems to be geared more to Windows 7?

If this is true, you guys have just saved me some head-aches with my remaining XP computers, and I thank you sincerely for that.

I'll save my headaches for installing Jaws 12 on the new Windows 7 laptop the University will give me this week. (smile)

Tom in Michigan

The best accessible FTP-server with JAWS

Anders Boholdt-Petersen
 

Hi everyone,

I looking after a FTP-server I can install on my Windows-computer where I can create users, set privileges to shared directorys et cetera.

After that I will give my computer a static IP-address, so I can forward the port in my router.

What is the best accessible FTP-server with JAWS (using JAWS 11 and 12)?

I have both Windows XP Service Pack 3 (HOME), and Windows 7 64-bit (also HOME-version).

Very thanks for the answer.

Regards,
Anders

Re: Identifying colors in word

Kimber Gardner
 

Thanks Ed. Excellent instructions.

And thanks to everyone who offered help and suggestions. I was able to
independently edit/revise my document and have learned a few things
along the way.

Kimberly

On 10/4/11, Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@kutakrock.com> wrote:
Kimberly:
Too bad the revisions were not made with track changes. Here is how to
search for color. Then, I'll describe how to create a Word hotkey.

To search for a color:
1. Press control plus f
2. tab over until you hear "more" and press space bar
3. tab over until you hear format
4. Arrow down until you hear font and then press ENTER to open the dialog
box
5. tab over until you find yourself in the familiar color choice box. Pick
your color and tab to OKK
6. Once this is set, you can jump quickly using the repeat find command,
shift plus F4
Remember to clear this out before doing other searches. If you later want
to find "Mississippi," it won't find it unless it is also in the identified
color. So, that's why clearing out the color is so important when you are
finished.

Now, to create a Word hot key. I know this is available in Word 2007 and
Word 2010, but I don't know how to get in to the right place since I've only
tinkered with Word 2010 on my wife's computer. Once you get in, however, I
understand the process is identical.
1. From tools, go to "Customize" -- one menu choice up from "options"
2. Press control tab until you hear "commands"
3. Tab once. You will be in a list of command categories, e.g., File,
Edit, and so on. If you aren't sure exactly where the command is, arrow
down to "all," I recommend this. Don't worry, the list won't be all that
long and besides, you don't pick your command yet. You still have to pick
keyboard (See below).
4. Here is the tricky part, this step seems a little redundant because you
still have to tab over to keyboard. Do that and press ENTER.
5. Now, you have the same list of command categories. Again, if you are
unsure, you can arrow down and pick ALL. I always do that.
6. Tab over for a list of commands. For example, try "next revision or
comment." To get there quickly, hit "N" until you hear that command
8. tab across until you get to the place where you can enter the new key.
In my case, for "Next revision or Window," I pressed alt plus shift plus r.
9. You can go back and change or create other commands. Some are defined
by Microsoft already. For instance alt plus F7 is next misspelling.
10. When finished, tab across to "close"
11. You will have to tab to close a second time, and you are done.
I use automatic cross-references, and inserting a cross-reference is a pain
using menus. For me alt plus shift plus X inserts the cross-reference with
one keystroke.
This sounds more complicated than it is.
Good luck!

Hi Ed,

I'm probably going to have to use the find in word to search for
colors as the document is rather large, but at least it sounds doable.

What are the steps for defining a hot key under keyboard? I've never done
that.

Thanks for all the help.

Be sure the changes are not in track changes. They will appear in

colors too, and sighted folks may not know the difference.
You can jump to changes in track changes multiple ways.
With JAWS, press Insert plus z to turn on those quick keys or whatever
they
are called. Then, simply press r to jump to the next revision.
In the reviewing task bar, you can tab to "next," but that's lots of
tabbing
and quite slow
Finally, you can do what I did. Inside Word options and keyboard, you can
create your own shortcut keys. In my case, I set Shift plus alt plus r to
jump to the "next" revision.
Finally, if the document has track changes, you will want to turn them on
with insert plus v.
Hope this helps.

1. Press alt+insert+s to bring up the scheme selection dialog.

With JAWS, press Insert plus z to turn on those quick keys or whatever they
are called. Then, simply press r to jump to the next revision.
In the reviewing task bar, you can tab to "next," but that's lots of tabbing
and quite slow
Finally, you can do what I did. Inside Word options and keyboard, you can
create your own shortcut keys. In my case, I set Shift plus alt plus r to
jump to the "next" revision.
Finally, if the document has track changes, you will want to turn them on
with insert plus v.
Hope this helps.

Thanks so much Tom and Dave. That works great.

Now, is there a way to jump from one piece of colored text to the
next? I don't see a navigation quick key for it, but I'm wondering if
it would be possible to perhaps do it with a macro or a script?

Thanks,

Hi Kimberly,
You probably want to turn on a proofreading scheme that will let you

those. One lets you hear attributes and color; the other will simply
identify color changes as they occur.

1. Press alt+insert+s to bring up the scheme selection dialog.
2. Make a mental note of which scheme is currently active; it's probably
"classic". This is important in case you want to come back to it later.
3. Arrow up or down to the scheme that sounds right for you, then press
enter.
4. Go to the top of your document and do a say-all. You should hear JAWS

Re: Identifying colors in word

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Kimberly:
Searching for color changes is possible in word. Not sure which version of Word you are in, but if you get deep into the find dialog box, you will find the option. As I recall, you need to search by specific color. So, you will look for all the yellow and then all the red and so on. That's not all that satisfying.
Be sure the changes are not in track changes. They will appear in different colors too, and sighted folks may not know the difference.
You can jump to changes in track changes multiple ways.
With JAWS, press Insert plus z to turn on those quick keys or whatever they are called. Then, simply press r to jump to the next revision.
In the reviewing task bar, you can tab to "next," but that's lots of tabbing and quite slow

Re: [Bulk] Identifying colors in word

There are free webinars on the FS site under speech and sound schemes that
instruct on how to use the features that will identify colors, fonts, etc;
You can download them in audio and html format.
Also the insert alt and s will be of use as well There are 22 selections in
this group and you will have to select which one will work for your needs.

Re: [Bulk] Identifying colors in word

Dave...
 

Kimberly,

At the risk of Tom again coming up with a better solution, I think you can
search by attributes in MS-Word. I've not had much success with it myself,
so some poking around the find dialog will be needed on your part.

There may also be a training document on the Freedom Scientific site on
this. I vaguely recall getting exposure to the idea in a past webinar on
Word 2003.

Hi,
Yeah, I'd forgottten about that one and had to look it up, then test it out on a document that I had lying around for that purpose. I guess I did okay with that one considering that I've been up for just under an hour and the caffeine ain't quite kicked in yet. <grin> I'll have to pass this little gem on to my students some time today. That way it'll be sure to stick in my brain.

Thank you all so much. The language pack should include about 9 other

So far in process and done are:

Also, September two zero, 2011, is spoken "September 20th", despite there being no 'th'. And when I wrote two zero in numbers with a space between to illustrate this point, JAWS spoke it as 'second zero'. that's why I spelled the numbers out.

Hi Ann. I agree with your first point. I also find this very frustrating and annoying. I really do wish jaws wouldn't read the screen or part of the screen that was just left. It is confusing. And yes I think jaws is lying too.

I just installed jaws 13. Hope it isn't lying too.

I have not found any control in jaws that has an effect on the behavior. In older screen readers. For instance, ASAP, you could adjust the text out delay. I thought that would work in jaws but it doesn't seem to help.

Your second point about dates, I've seen that happen to but I'm not sure which formats cause that to happen. Could you give some examples. Please?

Bob

Subject: JAWS saying the thing that is not


Maybe I'm just getting cranky---a definite possibility--but I find myself saying more and more often to my students, "JAWS is lying to you."

1. When opening a new document or application, JAWS often rereads the previous screen before reading the screen it just opened. To a newby, this is way confusing.

2. When reading dates, JAWS speaks a 'th' or 'st' or 'rd' after the date, even though it isn't there. It is important to me to know what I wrote, not what JAWS thinks I want to hear.

3. When working with an outline in Word 2010, JAWS often but not consistently reports the line I just pressed enter on, and not the new line with the outline number. So when I'm planning a party--my favorite outline--it says "2. send invitations' and not '3', which is where the cursor is.

I don't think I'm imagining this. Is anyone else having these kinds of issues???

thanks.

Ann

Re: JAWS 13 Withholding Information

I noticed this too. Today was the first time I really tried to select
anything. It does seem to work with .rtf files ok, but it definitely
doesn't work with .docx files.

Greetings: JAWS 13 here using XP Home and Word 7 is not announcing when
text is selected.
Is anyone else experiencing this form of lying?
Thanks, Mitch

adobie SVG Viewer

Robbie Miller
 

Hello All:

I'm on a web site that gives me a download link for adobie svg viewer.
The page says I need it to view a "interactive" map.
Will Jaws 12 work with the adobie svg viewer?

Thanks.

Robbie
