Re: Using Jaws Scrictly for MathML and Document reading, (sighted user)

Hi Ben,

 

First RE FS, you might want to try Technical Support at (727) 803-8600. Customer Service is more geared to product sales, checking on order status, and such…

 

Second, RE your question, how about muting speech when you don’t need it (JAWSKey+SPACE, S toggles speech; JAWSKey is either CAPS LOCK or INSERT key) and then just unmuting it with that same command when you need speech to read something to you? Just a thought…

 

Good luck!  

 

Regards,

Maria

Hi George, thanks so much for getting back so quickly, I didn't catch her name, she was almost definitely hispanic, going by her accent.  If this helps, I made two calls to FS- Jaws customer service, I believe the second call was the one I talked to this lady on, it was on Wed August 10th at 5:32 PM, I have it listed on my call display as 9 min. long, (including waiting time etc.), I used a calling card, so I can't see what number I called, but am pretty sure it was her call, as i had just called the main customer service line minutes before at 5:29 - 1-800-444-4443, (and I remember making the second call just after that).

Thanks,

Ben

Hey there!

Does anyone have any resources they can go to where they can get reliable help? I need to make Jaws accessible for dyslexia, and turn off all that stupid contextual chatter, as much as possible.  I just want it to read math equations, at a third year university, (chemistry) level.  I have gotten it to work recently, and then today, again I turned it on, and it won't read anything that but the menus and the context.  Need to know what settings will allow me to read the math, turn off the contextual dialogue, and how to save these settings. 

 

Thanks so much in Advance,

jaws anouncing every line with speech if you read with a braille display

André van Deventer <andredbsa@...>
 

Hi all

 

I have now for the first time used Jaws 17 with a braille display.  In the past, when I read a document with the display, speech was completely silent.  For some reason now whenever I read a line with the braille display, Jaws reads the line in speech also.  I find this quite annoying and am wondering whether this can be turned off so that Jaws is silent during reading.

Re: picking which account to send message from windows mail

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

Even when they are linked, when you send the email, it will ask which account you’d like to use.  Arrow and activate the account you’d like and press enter, then send.

 

At least that is what it did for me.

Mark,

            Unless you have linked your inboxes, the account being actively used at the moment will be the one from which any new message you compose will be sent.

            I've not linked my inboxes simply because I use different accounts for different purposes and always want to know which account I'm using at any moment and know that the messages I compose are definitely going to be sent from that account.  Based on what I can see as far as settings go, I suspect that even if you're using the linked inbox what will happen for replies is that the account associated with that message will be used.  I honestly have no idea what will happen if you hit the "New Mail" button from the linked inbox.  My gut tells me that it will use the account of whatever message happens to have focus at that moment since there doesn't appear to be any "default account" setting that I can find.

Word crashes when saving file

Bonnie Vegiard
 

Hi everyone,

I have had this problem for several weeks, so you may have talked about it a while back and I missed it. If you weeks ago, Microsoft word started crashing when I try to save the file. I can save changes to an already existing file, but when I created a new file it would crash every time as I tried to save it. I went on the Microsoft help pages, and I found a post that said that word is now crashing when saving a file while using jaws. So it is a known issue, but there was no sense of when it would be fixed.

Has anyone come up with a good work around for this problem? I have been using WordPad, but that's not a very good workaround.

I am using windows 10, office 365, and the latest version of jaws. I think this started happening before the latest jaws update came out. I wish I had any idea when it would be fixed.

Thanks, Bonnie


Re: Using Jaws Scrictly for MathML and Document reading, (sighted user)

 

Ben,

         Depending on how long you've had JAWS and whether you could return it you had ought to take a look at NVDA.  It is well suited to reading MathML and there are add-ons, if I'm remembering correctly, dedicated to this.

          JAWS is a marvelous product, but if your goal is having MathML read to you and you don't need a screen reader otherwise this, or if you're the owner of Microsoft Office 2010 or later, perhaps Window-Eyes for Office [which I'm not certain about the MathML support], is a more cost effective option.  There are individuals on the NVDA group that have discussed using it with MathML on multiple occasions and I was looking at it for a client of mine because it has excellent support for that particular function.

Check to see if you are downloading the same song over and over by doing this, instead of a new song each time.

On a call to Microsoft, I was told that when you down arrow between downloads, the last download is picked, but that when you tab from one to another, you select the next one in a list. At least in Windows 7 anyway.

Hi,

Yes once purchased if you tell it no to downloading with their app it’ll prepare you a zip file of your purchases.  This can be accessed both from your after purchase page or from your order history page for that digital order or your music library I believe.  It’s quite user friendly. If you have a shopping cart full of songs and there’s more than one zip file you’ll just have to amend the names of the zip file in the save as dialog box so as not to over write one file over another.  So I just append their amazon download.zip name with a number before the dot zip so as to avoid this.

I hope that helps.

Re: JAWS Command-Line Arguments and Switches

Bill,

Windows User Account Control will still appear and ask you if you want to allow the program to make changes, just hit Yes and then the Freedom Scientific Setup Package Help will appear. If you hit No then you will be sent back to the command line with the error "Access is denied".

After I re-read Steve's original message, I realized that this isn't exactly what he is looking for. The Freedom Scientific Setup Package Help will only provide switches/arguments for use with the JAWS installer. It doesn't provide the switches/arguments for the actual JAWS executable (jfw.exe).

Hi Steve,

Launch the JAWS setup executable from a command line with the /? Switch, and after UAC the Freedom Scientific Setup Package Help should appear, which lists out all of the command line arguments/switches that are available.

I have also pasted this information below. Good luck!

The Freedom Scientific setup package is a tool used to install or uninstall multiple components, including the main product. The following explains the available, optional command-line options. These commands are not case sensitive.

/MoreHelp
Displays additional help information, if available, about the setup package such as a list of setup types. The installation process is not performed.

Example:
c:\package.exe /MoreHelp

/ExtractSettings <Path-to-file>
Outputs the contents of Settings.ini to the output file specified. The installation process is not performed. If the output file already exists, it is overwritten. If there are spaces in the path to the file, the path must be enclosed in quotes.

Example:
c:\package.exe /ExtractSettings "c:\FS setup\OldSettings.ini"

/ReplaceSettings <Path-to-file>
Specifies an initialization file for the setup package engine to use instead of the Settings.ini file stored in the resources. This flag can be used if any of the contents in Settings.ini must be overridden. If there are spaces in the path to the file, the path must be enclosed in quotes.

Example:
c:\package.exe /ReplaceSettings "c:\FS setup\NewSettings.ini"

/ReplaceLanguage <Path-to-file>
Specifies a resource DLL for the setup package engine to use instead of the resource DLL file stored in the bootstrapper. This flag can be used to specify an alternate, external set of resources for the installation. If there are spaces in the path to the file, the path must be enclosed in quotes.

Example:
c:\package.exe /ReplaceLanguage "c:\FS setup\NewResources.dll"

/Log [Path-to-file]
Allows the user to specify the location of the setup package log file.
Logging is enabled even if this command line argument is not specified unless the /NoLog command line argument is used. If this command line argument is not specified the setup package log file will be located in C:\Users\aaron.page\AppData\Local\Temp\\jawssetup\FS_Setup_Package.log.

Example:
c:\package.exe /Log "c:\myFolder\mySetup.log"
The log file is created under c:\myFolder\mySetup.log.

/NoLog
Allows the user to disable the creation of the setup package log file.

/Type <name>
Specifies the setup type to use instead of the default. To view a list of available setup types, use the /MoreHelp command-line option.

Example:
c:\package.exe /type ServerWithSpeech

/Passthru <Installer1 [, Installer2, ..., InstallerN]>@<Command> This argument will append the specified command to the specified installers in a given package.

<Installer1 [, Installer2, ..., InstallerN]> - this portion of the argument specifies the installers which will receive the command. Each of the Installer strings should correspond to a section name in Settings.ini.
<Command> - the command to append to each of the specified installer's command-line. If you wish to passthrough a command that includes the characters /, - or # you must use the following escape sequences:
Sequence String
#0 #
#1 -
#2 /

Please note: All occurences of # in <Command> are interpreted as the beggining of an escape sequence. All instances of # and the character which follows the # will be replaced if a matching string can be found. If no corresponding string can be found then the # and the character following it will be removed
For example, the sequence ## in <Command> would be removed where as #0 would be replaced with #.

Example:
c:\Package.exe /passthru AnInstaller,AnotherInstaller@#2l

Asume that the following is the Settings.ini from the above package.exe.
---Begin Settings.ini---
[default]
PreInstall = AnotherInstaller|AThirdInstaller
MainInstall = AnInstaller

[AnInstaller]
Name = AI
File = msiexec.exe
Arguments = /i AI.msi

[AnotherInstaller]
Name = AnI
File = AnI.exe

[AThirdInstaller]
Name = AtI
File = AtI.exe
---End Settings.ini---

The complete command-line executed for AnInstaller would be:
msiexec.exe /i AI.msi /l

The complete command-line executed for AnotherInstaller would be:
Ani.exe /l

         The first thing I would suggest is clearing browser cache for your browsers either by their internal methods (which you can find by doing a search on the browser name plus the two words clear cache) or using a third party tool such as CCleaner and see if that makes any difference.

          I have seen all kinds of problems pop up because of cache corruption and just as mysteriously disappear after cache is cleared.  This may have nothing to do with your problem but it's stall a good place to start.

If this command line argument is not specified the setup package log file will be located in C:\Users\aaron.page\AppData\Local\Temp\\jawssetup\FS_Setup_Package.log.

Example:
c:\package.exe /Log "c:\myFolder\mySetup.log"
The log file is created under c:\myFolder\mySetup.log.

/NoLog
Allows the user to disable the creation of the setup package log file.

/Type <name>
Specifies the setup type to use instead of the default. To view a list of available setup types, use the /MoreHelp command-line option.

Example:
c:\package.exe /type ServerWithSpeech

/Passthru <Installer1 [, Installer2, ..., InstallerN]>@<Command>
This argument will append the specified command to the specified installers in a given package.

<Installer1 [, Installer2, ..., InstallerN]> - this portion of the argument specifies the installers which will receive the command. Each of the Installer strings should correspond to a section name in Settings.ini.
<Command> - the command to append to each of the specified installer's command-line. If you wish to passthrough a command that includes the characters /, - or # you must use the following escape sequences:
Sequence String
#0 #
#1 -
#2 /

Please note: All occurences of # in <Command> are interpreted as the beggining of an escape sequence. All instances of # and the character which follows the # will be replaced if a matching string can be found. If no corresponding string can be found then the # and the character following it will be removed
For example, the sequence ## in <Command> would be removed where as #0 would be replaced with #.

Example:
c:\Package.exe /passthru AnInstaller,AnotherInstaller@#2l

Asume that the following is the Settings.ini from the above package.exe.
---Begin Settings.ini---
[default]
PreInstall = AnotherInstaller|AThirdInstaller
MainInstall = AnInstaller

[AnInstaller]
Name = AI
File = msiexec.exe
Arguments = /i AI.msi

[AnotherInstaller]
Name = AnI
File = AnI.exe

[AThirdInstaller]
Name = AtI
File = AtI.exe
---End Settings.ini---

The complete command-line executed for AnInstaller would be:
msiexec.exe /i AI.msi /l

The complete command-line executed for AnotherInstaller would be:
Ani.exe /l

Subject: JAWS Command-Line Arguments and Switches

Where would I find a complete list of JAWS startup command-line switches and options? I need to write a quick-and-dirty three-line batch file to stop JAWS, change screen resolution with another program, then start it again. I have discovered that it's best to restart JAWS after changing screen resolution, so I thought I'd just put everything in a batch file and stick it up on the Desktop for easy activation. But I can't find a comprehensive list of JAWS command-line arguments and switches anywhere.

Thanks in advance.

according to the jaws instructions I should hit insert control f2 to hear the formula for the cell I am on.
This only gives me the window class.
I am using excel 2007 and windows 10.
What am I missing?
