Cool, as usual  This list could make a dandy document by itself, and I think I’ll create one.

Without using the Character Map program or the Insert Symbol command in Word is to use the "insert unicode character" command, which is done by typing the unicode code then immediately hitting ALT+X (no space, nothing after the code).

The one third symbol is unicode character 2153, so if you type 2153 immediately followed by ALT+X you'll get a on third (in Arial, but not all fonts have that symbol).

The two-thirds symbol is 2154.

Here are the available fraction symbols and their unicode code:

one-seventh 2150

one-ninth 2151

one-tenth 2152

one-third 2153

two-thirds 2154

one-fifth 2155

two-fifths 2156

three-fifths 2157

four-fifths 2158

one-sixth 2159

five-sixths 215A

one-eighth 215B

three-eighths 215C

five-eighths 215D

seven-eighths 215E

fraction numerator one 215F  (which gives you one with the slash as one character, after which you can then type in what you want as a denominator)

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

 

Hi Kevin,

 

If you have an iPhone then Turning off speech with Insert+Spacebar+S in Jaws is like turning off speech with a 3-finger double tap in iOS/Voiceover. It will mute speech, but iOS gestures as well as Jaws behaviour is still as if Jaws or Voiceover were running and it’s equally difficult for sighted users to use the devices this way.

Using Insert+F4 will unload Jaws completely just as a triple click of the home button completely turns off Voiceover and both the computer or the iPhone will be as if no screenreader was installed.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

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

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: 1password with jaws

Kramlinger, Keith G., M.D.
 

Hi Sieghard,

Do you know if RoboForm has a Family option that is accessible and usable. 1Pasword has a family plan wherein each member of a family gets his or her own secure vault, but there is a shard vault for all family members for information which is shared among them.

Thanks, Keith

Hi Bonnie,

I have no experience with OnePassword, but I have been using Roboform for many years and it works quite well. If you subscribe to Roboform Everywhere which I believe is $20 a year or so you can install it on as many devices as you want and your data will be kept on the Roboform servers and sync automatically to your computers. On the iPhone the app is also accessible, but you have to start a sync manually from time to time. Roboform allows you to have password secured log-ins, you can also have Bookmarks which are not password secured and you can have SafeNotes which you can protect with your Master Password or not. I sometimes just have a few notes which are not sensitive information which I don't protect, but it's an easy way to have them available on all my devices.
If I want to log in to a website I just go to my system tray, bring up the Roboform menu and go to Logins, then I find my login (it is first letter sensitive) and press enter on it. For the most part this will go to the website, fill in user name and password and log me in all automatically. For some sites this does not work and in those cases you can put focus in the user name edit field, bring up the application menu with the key for it if you have one or Shift+F10 and select the "Fill" option, this will show you the password Roboform thinks should be used for the website which is usually the correct one and if you press enter it will fill the fields and submit, again on some websites you have to activate the Submit or Login button after it fills the fields. Occasionally when you do this Jaws loses focus and I have to tab away and back to the website and repeat the step withShift+F10, select fill and press enter on the passcard as Roboform calls them.
Overall I quite like Roboform, it has a few quirks, but what doesn't. What is more is that it seems to have been consistently accessible.

Sieghard

I have another question as well. I have been using1password as my password program for a year or so. It is not particularly smooth, but I have been able to make it work. However, a few weeks ago they came out with an upgrade, and since then it has not worked at all. I'm wondering if this is a problem with my Firefox browser needing to be updated, but I have been in touch with support. They noticed that something to do with the Freedom scientific settings may be an issue. Does anyone else use this program, and do you have any suggestions for me to make it work? Are there other password programs that work better? It would be a big pain to shift everything over, but if there something that works better I would like to know.

Re: silencing announcements

 

Mario,

           Sorry to contradict you, but I'm going to.  Between e-mail providers (most of them, anyway) doing server-side scanning and most folks employing antivirus or security suite software that does realtime scanning of e-mail messages upon download it has been years, literally, since I've had a client who got malware of any kind from allowing images to load as part of their e-mail.  I haven't blocked images in so long I cannot remember.

            If your (for any you) browsing and e-mail habits are such that your security software has not found anything to quarantine in as long as you can remember, the probability that you will get infected from embedded images in an e-mail is vanishingly remote.

            It all comes back to my repeated position:  Most infections are the result of direct or one-click removed user action.  If you aren't someone who goes to sketchy sites, your e-mail spam filter works, and you have any adequate antivirus or security suite you simply don't experience infections with any frequency.  An ounce of prevention in good "browsing hygiene" is worth a pound of cure after a disaster because it wasn't employed in the first place.

Bonnie, to check for updates, press alt+h for the help menu, a for the

Subject: Latest version of Firefox with jaws


I am getting different messages that my Firefox browser needs to be updated. I am always concerned about doing this, because I do not know how it will work with jaws if I installed the very latest version. Does anyone have any feedback on this? I have the most updated version of jaws, and I am using windows 10, but right now I am not sure what version of Firefox I am using, just that it has not been updated in a while.

Thanks, Bonni

Re: Word 2013, windows 7: opened document not reading

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Ann, there's a label to the immediate left of the ribbon. If memory serves, it invokes a read-only mode that strips a lot of junk and makes difficult documents a little easier to handle. You might give it a shot.

Subject: Word 2013, windows 7: opened document not reading

Jaws 17.

When my student opens a document in the documents list, JAWS says "Document, message" and does not read the text. The text is on the screen but not accessible. Printview is on. sometimes it says something about preview, but I can't find a preview screen.

additionally when she opens a new document, it's not the usual document 1, but--for example--document 26, then 27, then 28.

How can we fix this????

Thanks,

Ann


Re: silencing announcements

Mario
 

Bob, the messages cannot be suppressed but Its possible to display all
images from any sender, though its not recommended since malware can
(and is) be embedded in images, and spammers will be able to verify your
e-mail address among other information. If you are willing to accept the
privacy implications of displaying remote content for all messages,
Thunderbird allows you to display remote content by default. To set it so:

1. At the top of the Thunderbird window, click the Tools menu (Alt + T)
and select Options, or click the Application menu button
New Fx Menu
and choose Options.
2. Select the Privacy panel.
3. Check the Allow remote content in messages checkbox to have all
remote content loaded by default.

again, I strongly recommend against doing so. if you're not concerned
about this privacy issue and you want to eventually get spam, go ahead.

I have an alert that I don't want to hear every time I open email in
Thunderbird.

Alert!
To protect your privacy, Thunderbird has blocked remote content in this
message.
Options
Alt+O
Close this message


I've looked at all the options but don't find a way to block remote
content without hearing this announcement with Jaws.

Any Jaws tricks for suppressing such announcements?

1password with jaws

Bonnie Vegiard
 

Hi again,
I have another question as well. I have been using1password as my password program for a year or so. It is not particularly smooth, but I have been able to make it work. However, a few weeks ago they came out with an upgrade, and since then it has not worked at all. I'm wondering if this is a problem with my Firefox browser needing to be updated, but I have been in touch with support. They noticed that something to do with the Freedom scientific settings may be an issue. Does anyone else use this program, and do you have any suggestions for me to make it work? Are there other password programs that work better? It would be a big pain to shift everything over, but if there something that works better I would like to know.

Thanks, Bonnie

Re: Custom JAWS Scripting for Interaction Desktop by Interactive Intelligence

Shan Noyes
 

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.

Shan Noyes

Mario and Poppa Bear,

           Thank you very much for the pointer to Jackie.  Although I joined the JAWS Scripting list and made my first post I believe I am being moderated, which is no surprise, since the post has not shown up in my own inbox and I'm set to receive copies of my own posts it must be in the queue for review.  I also can't see the member list since I'm not yet approved.

           There was someone who had already been doing some scripting work with the client's employer's custom internal software, but this got cut short due to several factors.  He did a great job with the few days he had to work on this.  We're checking to see if he's available first since the client and employer are already familiar with him.  He may not be available, so any pointers to any skilled script programmers are definitely appreciated.

Re: How to get a character count in a Word document?

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

That'll give you a word count, not a character count; Better stick with the earlier tip.

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,

Emmanuel
