Re: Running Jaws/NVDA and Zoom Text as a high bred system for a client

Dear friend,

The  F S tech support  people do  know MAGIC  keystrokes.

 

Starting with  MAGIC would make learning   JAWS later on    much easier.

 

The 2  programs  work seamlessly together.

 

I find  MAGIC ergonomic since it is so easy to use with less hand effort for gliding the  info across the screen.

You can use the arrow keys to  adjust the contrast in a snap.

 

I set  JAWS to  read fast and the  MAGIC software keeps focus on the spoken word perfectly.

 

Good luck.

Re: Office 365 Accessibility

Tom Behler
 

Ted:

I actually did find a way in which I can acquire Office 2013 through my
university while I'm still employed. But, it costs $80 a year, and the
software is already over 3 years old.

So, by the time I pay the subscription for a few years, I will essentially
have paid for software I don't really own that will be very outdated.

May just have to bite the bullet and buy a stand-alone version of Office
2016 when purchasing my new computer.

Hi Jason and Tom,

Jason,you are exactly correct. I had the Office 365 subscription whereby I
could download Office to my tablet and my wife's computer. Yes, there were
two installs available and it worked as the stand-alone copy did. Another
thing to check is many companies offer a substantial discount on Office
stand-alone for home use. This could include educational institutions,
private employers, state organizations, etc. I wound up picking up the
stand-alone copy of 2016 for a little over $25 which is much preferred to
paying an annual subscription for Office 365. While I couldn't receive a
refund on the remainder of my year's subscription, it was still worth it to
go the stand-alone route.

If your Office365 subscription lets you download and install Microsoft
Office on your desktop machine, then it shouldn't be substantially different
from the stand-alone package.

However, if you're planning to use Office365 Online, which is a Web
interface rather than a desktop application, then it's completely different
and may not be as convenient or accessible. At least some of the Office365
subscription plans let you install Office desktop and mobile applications on

Re: compressing large files

Tony
 

You probably can't send a large file as an e-mail attachment. Most providers have limits between 1 and 10 mb. In any case, zipping a file is always a good idea. Many uncompressed files are posted to SendSpace and seem to download without problems. Only after spending an hour or two listening to the file do you find problems that a quick test of the zip file would detect.

do you know what format the recording is? if it's an mp3, it is a compressed audio file and will not significantly compress any further.
but if it is a wav format, converting it to an mp3 or other format will result in about 1/40th of the size, depending on what what format it's converted to.
if you know or can find out what frequency, bit rate, and if it is a monaurial or stereo recording, it might be possible to shrink it a bit to a suitable size. or, and this is probly not possible, rerecording it at a different frequency, bit rate, and a single channel (mono) might result in a smaller size, but am not sure of the recording quality that will result.
