Re: Custom JAWS Scripting for Interaction Desktop by Interactive Intelligence

Hi 
Brian: 

Just wanted to let you know that i saw your post to the jaws script list the other day, so your new message did get through.  Traffic on the list seems to go in starts and stops.  Anyways, the person i would suggest that you should ask about the scripting stuff is doug lee he has a web site at www.dlee.org note he has developed some really cool scripts. He has one for skype for business, as well as another one he wrote many years ago which enables the jaws user to look at the process screen in task manager and navigate it with jaws table commands. 

Anyways, i tried sending a lengthy email to this list with a bunch of scripting info that i've found out while starting to script.  Not sure if you got it.  Cause i had written it on my computer and then tried using a webmail interface to send it.  Even though i was logged in as my account that i am subscribed to this list with, the webmail interface changes the who is sending it and hence it bounced i think.  Anyways, can you let me know if you got it.

Anyways, good luck with the scripting stuff.

Have a good dan.

Hi Tim,
While your document is open (running), tap F6 key until you hear 'status bar' - it comes on after your second tap. Then use your down arrow key and you will hear the page number after which the next is the word count you are looking for.
Cheers,

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!

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.

It worked for me in Outlook 2016 last week. Unfortunately, I had to move back

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?

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?

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?

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.

 

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!

you need to unload JAWS from memory because by putting JAWS to sleep,
JAWS is quiet but still is interfacing with the display.

I haven’t used it much, but I think a quick, safe way is JAWS, Spacebar,
S. this should toggle.



I’m still chuckling about sightlings; sounds like Mork—nannu, nannu!

Re: Custom JAWS Scripting for Interaction Desktop by Interactive Intelligence

Mario
 

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.

Subject: Custom JAWS Scripting for Interaction Desktop by Interactive
Intelligence

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.
