Re: How to shut off JAWS when sightlings want to use your computer?

Hey thanks everyone! I've been pretty busy lately and haven't been able to
stay with my thread here.

So all I have to do when said sightling comes over to mess up my laptop is;
Hit Insert + F4 keys to shut off JAWS. Then when said sightling leaves and I
have to figure out exactly what she screwed up; I just hit Control, Alt J
keys, and I'm back in business again!
Thanks everyone big time for your help!

Thank you all and be safe!

Set a hot key to restart Jaws if you haven't already. Now when you want to
stop jaws hit the Jaws key + F4, then answer yes.

After the other person is finished with the computer simply hit Alt +
Cntrol+ what ever hot key you used and Jaws will restart.

Hi Michael,



First, check whether the Jaws shortcut you should have on your desktop has a
shortcut key or not. In order to do so, select it and press <alt+enter> to
display its properties.



Then, tab twice. You should hear "Shortcut key (hotkey):" and something
more. If this additional information is simply <none>, type a key on your
keyboard, (the letter j for instance). Then, tab away from this item, and
shift+tab back to it. You should now hear "Shortcut key
(hotkey): ctrl+alt+j". "j" could be replaced with the letter you typed.



If it's ok, tab until the Ok button and press <enter>.



In order to check if it works, try pressing it. Jaws cannot be launched
twice but it should inform you about such an attempt, for instance, by
placing you into the Jaws window or opening the Jaws context menu, (depends
on whether you choose to minimize jaws in the taskbar on in the notification
area).



Now, if it works, you can confidently type <jawskey+f4> in order to shut
jaws down. After your sighted friend gives you back your computer, simply
type the hotkey you previously defined and jaws should restart soon.

So what's the fastest and best way to shut JAWS down, and the fastest and

I know way back when, on a different computer, I had someone put on some

It worked for me in Outlook 2016 last week. Unfortunately, I had to move back
and forth with up/down arrow keys a little before JAWS recognized that there
was no automatic number on the final paragraph. The braille output was rather
misleading, but the numbering did in fact stop as it was supposed to do.






Re: google drive and Jaws accessibility?

Poppa Bear <heavens4real@...>
 

You can not upload files from the desktop, there is no need to, you just drop the files into your desktop Google drive folder and the files will show up on your desktop Google drive as well as your online Google drive, this is as long as you have an internet conection to allow the files to upload from your desktop G drive and have not turned off automatic sink. Does that answer your question?

Hello All,

           Well, today's arrival on my new client's job site has already proven to me that, as far as JAWS and the custom applications necessary for the job duties she needs to perform, I'm in way over my head.   Virtually every interaction she has with a computer here is with a custom application for which I know of no existing JAWS scripting.  I am not capable of writing scripts of the complexity that would be needed even if I wished to do so.

           That being said, it would surprise me if there isn't some repository, somewhere, of existing JAWS scripting that's been done for custom applications that might be being used by multiple companies that have purchased them.  One such, Interaction Desktop, is used in lots of call centers under license.

           Does anyone know whether there already exist the extensive JAWS scripts that would be necessary to access this particular application?  If not, is there some person or entity that would be best to ask beyond Freedom Scientific or the actual software maker (who just might know if anyone's ever scripted JAWS on top of it)?

           Thanks in advance for any guidance you can offer.

Re: How to shut off JAWS when sightlings want to use your computer?

Brent Harding
 

I wish there was a better way to suspend Jaws. Supervisor calls end up creating enough wasted time for me because once Jaws gets restarted, it doesn't see the labels in the phone program, and sometimes the other program we use for the call flows scrolls funny so you can get to either yes or no, but not both and so forth, since it is mostly jaws cursor work. I kind of wonder what fun Windows 10 would throw in the mix, if work should choose to upgrade one day?

First, check whether the Jaws shortcut you should have on your desktop has a shortcut key or not. In order to do so, select it and press <alt+enter> to display its properties.

 

Then, tab twice. You should hear “Shortcut key (hotkey):” and something more. If this additional information is simply <none>, type a key on your keyboard, (the letter j for instance). Then, tab away from this item, and shift+tab back to it. You should now hear “Shortcut key (hotkey): ctrl+alt+j”. “j” could be replaced with the letter you typed.

 

If it’s ok, tab until the Ok button and press <enter>.

 

In order to check if it works, try pressing it. Jaws cannot be launched twice but it should inform you about such an attempt, for instance, by placing you into the Jaws window or opening the Jaws context menu, (depends on whether you choose to minimize jaws in the taskbar on in the notification area).

 

Now, if it works, you can confidently type <jawskey+f4> in order to shut jaws down. After your sighted friend gives you back your computer, simply type the hotkey you previously defined and jaws should restart soon.

 

HTH, Have a nice day. ChD

Subject: How to shut off JAWS when sightlings want to use your computer?

 

So every now and then one of my sighted friends comes over and wants to check something out on the internet. But she’s always complaining about my eloquence’s voice program running with JAWS.

So what’s the fastest and best way to shut JAWS down, and the fastest and best way to bring it back up, after she’s done?

 

I know way back when, on a different computer, I had someone put on some  short cut keys to disable JAWS, once disabled you could just hit those short cut keys again, and JAWS would come back up.

 

So how do I go about setting this up again on my current laptop?

Although, it’s kind of funny listening to a sightling freak out; when having to listen to eloquence going a thousand miles an hour while working on your computer!

Re: Custom JAWS Scripting for Interaction Desktop by Interactive Intelligence

if you joined the scripting list, it might help to ask Jackie McBride.
she's one of the long time, polished script writers over there. email
her off list. she even might agree to do the scripting for a nominal
price... depending on the complexity of the job.

Hello All,

Well, today's arrival on my new client's job site has already
proven to me that, as far as JAWS and the custom applications necessary
for the job duties she needs to perform, I'm in way over my head.
Virtually every interaction she has with a computer here is with a
custom application for which I know of no existing JAWS scripting. I am
not capable of writing scripts of the complexity that would be needed
even if I wished to do so.

That being said, it would surprise me if there isn't some
repository, somewhere, of existing JAWS scripting that's been done for
custom applications that might be being used by multiple companies that
have purchased them. One such, Interaction Desktop, is used in lots of
call centers under license.

Does anyone know whether there already exist the extensive
JAWS scripts that would be necessary to access this particular
application? If not, is there some person or entity that would be best
to ask beyond Freedom Scientific or the actual software maker (who just
might know if anyone's ever scripted JAWS on top of it)?

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can offer.

It’s a small world, Bryan!  This is a new flavor of a program that’s been around for a while. Until recently, it was accessible; now it isn’t.  You can’t see what I guess we can call the control line part of the time, which makes picking up calls a challenge.  You probably know the line I’m talking about; you have to be on it in order for our shortcut keys )pick up, disconnect, Etc.) to work.  I can make calls, but I take ‘em far more often than I make ‘em.  Adding insult to injury, you can’t see your user status—available, after call work, tech support, Etc.  This is driving me bonkers.  Without this software, I’m mostly a decoration.  Of course, when it rains it pours; we begin annual open enrollment today, meaning more calls than the law will allow.  As misery loves company, I’m going to copy this; perhaps we can keep in touch off list.

Then the cable is detachable. Mine came attached, and it's so snug I was afraid to damage it by yanking on it.
Thanks for verifying that.

You use the Lightning cable that came with your iPhone to connect it to the PC. Obviously the small end plugs into your iPhone, the other end is a standard USB plug and you can plug it into your PC and, of course, into the wall adapter that also came with your iphone to charge it. The iPhone will also charge when connected to a computer, but it is slower than if you use the wall adapter because a computer does not output as much current.
