I am running Windows 7 and JAWS 17.  Groove is what used to be Media Player.  What is the command when I am listening to something and want to rewind a little bit.  Like the rewind button on the antiquated tape recorder.

Re: Jaws hotkey.

Michael Mote
 

Provided you set that hotkey up. I believe you have to set up the hot key, and for the record, you can make it any key that you want it to be. For example, if you have more than one version of JAWS on your computer, you may want to assign a number rather than the letter J. Let's say you wanted to start JAWS 17. You can set the hot key for that for Control Plus Alt Plus 7. Hope this helps!

ASIO is a low latency driver, which speeds up your audio response. If you
don't know about it you probably don't need it. VST is a protocol for
plug-ins that can do all sorts of useful things. It's cross-platform and
very versatile, but there are ways around it if you don't have it. There's a
"wrapper" for them that allows you to use them in Direct X settings, so it's
something again that you don't need to think much about unless you already
know you need them.

I can't help you with your second question.
Sound Forge 8 was still fairly accessible, but unless you need the ASIO
drivers and VST support 7 is a better option, as it's more stable and it
doesn't use some of the Microsoft add-ins that make it a pain to install in
Windows 8 or beyond. You can download it from the archive on the site,
though it may be unavailable for a short time as things get transferred over
to the new owner of the program. (Magix bought the entire former Sonic
Foundry set of programs, including Sound Forge, Acid, and Vegas from Sony
recently) You can run Sound Forge without registering it, though you'll lose
some functions, probably the plug-ins and other similar stuff. I haven't
tried to run it without a license, as I went ahead and bought it, (a
purchase I've never regretted) as it is a core program for my audio work and
its inception and pedigree make it one of the more accessible options for
us. There are a vast array of keyboard shortcuts for it without the need for
scripts or hot spotting, and it uses almost all of the standard Windows
navigation. (Not surprising, as the two guys who created it were on the team
that brought multimedia to Windows) Note that the loss of a few of the
standard plug-ins won't be a problem, as there are a wide (some would say
vast) array of direct x plug-ins for free on the web that should fill all of
the holes.

Hi,

I am currently working with the combination of Windows 10, JAWS 17, and the
latest version of GoldWave, for editing audio files. Up to now, GoldWave has
done what I need it to do. However, as I've been expanding and diversifying
where the editing I do gets used, a problem occasionally reoccurs, so, I
have two questions.

First, on my computer, saved changes to the GoldWave fade in and/or fade out
settings always stay as I set them. Occasionally, when the same file is
copied and played on a different device or computer the changes don't
"hold". It's as if I never saved the changes. This only happens with the
fade in and fade out settings. I've tried saving the work in different file
extensions to no affect. this has become a nuisance because of its
unpredictability. Has anyone experienced this effect and resolved it?

Secondly, one of my clients opened the file (with the GoldWave edits) and
resaved it using Sound Forge. Following that process their media player was
able to play the file as I edited it. With that outcome, I think I should
diversify and learn to use a second audio editing program as a backup . Is
the current version of Sony Sound Forge accessible to JAWS? I've heard that
Sound Forge 8.0 was the best in combination with JAWS, but, can that version
still be purchased? Since I'm completely blind, does anyone have a
recommendation for audio editing software that functions well with JAWS?

Greg

Hi Mike,

there have been some improvements, but without knowing in more detail what you were having problems with, I'm unsure whether these will alter your view of the accessibility of the program. There are some areas of the program that unfortunately aren't accessible, but many people still find it to be a useful program.

Hi Greg,

a couple of other audio editors which are reasonable accessible with Jaws are Audacity and Reaper. Audacity is free, and Reaper has a 60 day free trial, and is not too expensive. Reaper has more functionality than Audacity. Here are some links for both of them:

It's the newest tool for navigating "objects" in Windows. The JAWS cursor doesn't work quite the way it used to in previous versions of Windows. The Touch cursor allows you to click or activate things which are on your screen. There are commands in JAWS which can make it easier to do this.

Dear friends,

 

I am using Internet Download Manager-IDM with JAWS 17 and Window 10 environment. I used to use window 7 with IDM. On Window 7, IDM download panel would appear when I run YouTube pages or other video/audio pages. I could access IDM panel very easy with JAWS cursor.

But on Window 10, although sighted people told me that they saw IDM download panel on the screen of YouTube page. But when I moved JAWS cursor to the place that they saw IDM download panel, JAWS said nothing. It’s like there is no panel or JAWS cannot access the panel. My question is how I can access IDM download panel with JAWS.

I have heard about some other tools could perform the task of downloading YouTube video/audio pages. My question is not aimed to find alternative tools but what is going on when JAWS cursor cannot tell me IDM panel.

Thank you very much for any helps and suggestions

App or website suggestions to facilitate in helping the blind find employment?

Hello listers,
I apologize if this may be off-topic, but figured I could ask this here, and get hopefully a good consensus from everyone. I was wondering, if any of you would know of a website or two or an app, that would facilitate blind and visually impaired people in finding employment? I'm currently enrolled with the South Carolina Commission For The Blind, but also trying to reach out two other folks whether it be on Indeed.com, or wherever, in hopes of finding a job. My instructor at the Commission, said that NFB Newsline , maybe a good place to start, so I'm waiting for someone to help with getting me signed up for it. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated, and if you'd like, feel free to email me off list, and maybe you can share with me some of your quests in finding employment, etc. I can be reached at hshaneclark@....

Hello Mark,
I have Office 365, Windows 10, and Jaws 17, latest build; I found trying to
work with Word, using one drive a bother, but fortunately it is only an
option, not mandatory. Upgrading to Office 2016, will involve more to learn,
but that is unavoidable eventually I should think. There is also the annual
