Re: OK what's this pop up I just got and ain't accessible?

Mario
 

why do you press d when trying the ocr feature? isn't it used when
performing the ocr on a "empty" PDF?

I would imagine w would be more appropriate since it's for the active
window.

you can also try, but I think you've already did, pressing insert+b.

I thought this new JAWS OCR could read something like this?



Any idea of what this “UNC Server” is?

Hi All,

My doctoral program is apparently planning to survey students using Microsoft forms. Does anyone have experience with this to know how well it works with JAWS?

Thanks,

It can recognize text on screens which are otherwise inaccessible and if there are elements like a Next button or a link you can click it with the Jaws cursor. I have had installation screens of software which were just blank to Jaws and when I ran Convenient OCR on them I was able to do what needed to be done.
Also, if you open a PDF file which is an image you can OCR the entire document with a single layered keystroke without ever bringing up Openbook. I also own Openbook, but ever since Convenient OCR can do entire PDF documents I haven't used it once and I don't even have it installed any more. If I need to scan a paper document I either use my iPhone with KNFB Reader or I just scan it on my Fujitsu Scansnap at my business which is a sheet scanner and it can scan a stack of 10 double sided pages in less than 30 seconds, then I just select the Save to File option which saves the scan as a PDF, I open the PDF and press Jaws Key + Space followed by O and D which is the keystroke to do OCR on the entire PDF document. The result gets put in the virtual viewer, if I need to keep it I can just to a Select All, then copy and paste it into Notepad, Word or wherever.
I think Convenient OCR is the biggest feature in Jaws since quick nav keys for the internet.

Regards,
Sieghard

It can be downloaded and installed from the same page as the jaws installer.

Note that I recently tried installing OpenBook and after doing so jaws convenient OCR ceased functioning (I even tried re-installing both jaws and the convenient OCR package without success). It required uninstalling OpenBook for jaws convenient OCR to work again. I keep meaning to try un-installing jaws, installing OpenBook and then re-installing jaws and see if that fixes the problem but I have not got around to doing so.

Your options for notation software are as follows:
Sibelius Access is a set of Jaws scripts you can use to work with notated
music in Sibelius. Though work is being done to update them, for right now
you'd need to run version 5.02 of Sibelius to use them. Do a search on the
web for Sibelius Access and you should find both the scripts and also the
mailing list that will help you navigate through getting things set up.
Lime Aloud is another option, and will give you more capability in creating
Braille music. Talk to the folks at Dancing Dots about this option.
There's no current option I know of for Finale, Encore, Score, or
Steinberg's new notation program. (the name escapes me at the moment for the
last one)
Pro Tools is inaccessible with Jaws -- you'll need a Mac and Voiceover to do
anything with it for now. The same goes for Logic, as it's also a Mac only
option. (There is no current version of Logic for Windows or any other
non-Apple operating system) Reaper is the popular option right now for blind
audio users, though Samplitude is also accessible with the addition of
scripts and hot keys. Sonar is also an option, but you'll need an older
version, as development of Cake Talking hasn't kept up with the versions.
Also note that Audacity is fully blind accessible too.

Direct Download Links & What's New For Latest JAWS 18.0.2118 Release

Mike B. <mwb5781@...>
 

Ho, Ho, Ho, Here Y'all Go,
 
Below are the direct download links & what's new for the latest JAWS 18.0.2118 update.
 
32 Bit:
 
 
64 Bit:
 
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the initial JAWS 18 release and the December 2016 update.
JAWS
list of 11 items
• The keystroke to announce the comment at the cursor location in a Word document as well as all of the JAWS Tandem keystrokes can now be found using the
JAWS Commands Search feature (INSERT+SPACEBAR, J).
• You can now press a braille display cursor router button on a file in Windows Explorer to rename the file.
• Addressed an issue with JAWS not reading as expected after using the mouse to minimize or close the Virtual Viewer.
• Resolved an issue where some controls in the Windows Update dialog box were not being correctly identified as links when using Touch or Mouse Echo.
• When changing the setting for the User Pan Mode option in Settings Center, resolved a reported issue where the corresponding option in Quick Settings
was not getting changed.
• Addressed a customer reported issue with braille flash messages using the "err" type not working when the flash message verbosity was set to Advanced.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was unexpectedly restarting under some circumstances when using the Auto Graphics Labeler.
• Addressed reported issues with some Research It lookup sources not working as expected in both the Spanish and German versions of JAWS.
• A customer using the Spanish version of JAWS reported several English messages and keystroke conflicts. These have been resolved.
• In response to customer feedback, if a French keyboard has been added in Windows Regional Settings and LEFT ALT+LEFT SHIFT is pressed to switch the keyboard
language, JAWS now announces when the keyboard language changes to French.
• This update includes the latest braille display drivers from Humanware for the Brailliant BI and BrailleNote Touch.
list end
 
JAWS Touch Support
list of 4 items
• The three-finger flick down and three-finger flick up gestures now cycle between the panes in various applications including the Windows Mail app, Microsoft
Word, and JAWS Settings Center. This is similar to pressing F6 or SHIFT+F6 on the keyboard.
• When you move to a slider control using touch, you can now flick up or down with one finger to adjust the value of the slider.
• You can now review the contents of a command prompt window using touch gestures.
• As you explore the screen with the touch keyboard active, JAWS now plays a sound to indicate when you are on a keyboard button.
list end
 
Vocalizer Expressive 2.2
list of 5 items
• Resolved an issue where the Set Language as Primary button was not available as expected in the Voice Adjustment dialog box when configuring voice profiles
for certain languages.
• When creating a new voice profile, addressed an issue with certain languages where no voices were being listed in the Person combo box.
• Resolved issues with the Speak Sample button not working as expected when creating a new voice profile.
• Resolved a reported issue where there were no pauses in speech when the punctuation level was set to none.
• Addressed an issue where it was not possible to switch to the English South Africa voice using the Select a Language dialog box (WINDOWS Key+CTRL+L).
list end
 
Adobe Acrobat
list of 2 items
• While navigating in PDF documents, resolved an issue where focus was unexpectedly moving to a different location in the document.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not reading graphics correctly in Acrobat Reader DC.
list end
 
Microsoft Excel
list of 2 items
• In the Excel 2016 spell checker, addressed a reported issue where JAWS was saying "no selected item" while navigating the list of suggestions.
• Updated the documentation for the Move to Worksheet keystroke (CTRL+SHIFT+S) to make it easier to locate using the JAWS Commands Search.
list end
 
Microsoft Outlook
list of 4 items
• Resolved a customer reported issue where messages were automatically being read even when the Messages Automatically Read option in Quick Settings was
turned off.
• Resolved an issue with JAWS not correctly speaking the state of check boxes when creating custom search folders.
• Improved JAWS performance when using the Outlook 2016 search (CTRL+E).
• When using the CTRL+ALT+1 through 4 keystrokes to change the Calendar view in Outlook 2016, addressed an issue where JAWS was sometimes not indicating
the view gaining focus.
list end
 
Microsoft Word
list of 4 items
• Added a new Quick Settings option, Include Blank Paragraphs For Paragraph Navigation, to specify whether or not blank paragraphs are included when using
CTRL+UP ARROW and CTRL+DOWN ARROW. When enabled, navigation in the Word document with CTRL+UP ARROW and CTRL+DOWN ARROW will include blank lines as well
as paragraphs with text. This setting is off by default which means that blank lines are skipped.
• Resolved a customer reported issue with Spanish JAWS where pressing CTRL+SHIFT+COMMA or CTRL+SHIFT+PERIOD in a Spanish version of Office to decrease
or increase the font point size was not working as expected.
• JAWS now provides better access to form fields in unprotected documents in Word 2016.
• JAWS now indicates when split buttons in Office ribbons are unavailable.
list end
 
Skype
list of 1 items
• JAWS now announces Sign in and Sign out notifications as well as other miscellaneous alerts that were not previously being announced reliably.
list end
 
Web Browsers
list of 14 items
• JAWS now includes the contents of ARIA live regions in Braille Structured Mode. A good example to see this is Google Sheets, Google's web-based spreadsheet
program. Before this change, JAWS could speak cell coordinates or contents, but this information was not displayed in braille. Now, JAWS shows in braille
not only cell coordinates such as a1, a2 etc., but can also display the entire cell contents, or what is currently being typed into a cell.
• Added support for the ARIA 1.1 features aria-posinset and aria-setsize on menu items in Firefox and on tab controls in Internet Explorer.
• In Firefox, added support for the aria-errormessage, aria-rowindex, and aria-colindex ARIA 1.1 properties, as well as role="none" and the new "figure"
role.
• Added JAWS support for the ARIA 1.1 error message relation in Internet Explorer.
• Addressed a reported issue with navigating to and activating tab controls on web pages in Firefox.
• Resolved a customer reported issue where lists inside of a Navigation region on certain web pages were not being displayed correctly in Firefox.
• Addressed an issue with the "new tab page" message being announced at inappropriate times. This message should now only be heard when a browser tab opens
or closes.
• In Internet Explorer, addressed an issue where JAWS was not reading labels for clickable elements.
• Resolved reported issues encountered by some users when completing the JAWS Certification Exam.
• Resolved issues with JAWS reporting the incorrect state of check boxes when the Display Settings (DPI) was set higher than 100 percent which is often
the case on touch screen laptops and tablets.
• When selecting text in a multiline edit field in Google Chrome, resolved an issue where the selected text was not being indicated in braille.
• Addressed issues with form fields that use the aria-labelledby attribute not being seen by JAWS in Internet Explorer the same as they are in Firefox.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS was not correctly announcing links that contain the aria-describedby attribute in Internet Explorer.
• In Internet Explorer, resolved reported issues where check boxes and links were not working as expected inside of a div element using an ARIA role of
"grid". In addition, pressing INSERT+CTRL+B for a list of buttons on the page now works as expected inside an ARIA grid.
list end
Merry downloading & installing!
Take care.

Carliss, I presume you're talking about The KNFB Reader from K-NFB
Reading Technologies.

The iOs version of KNFB Reader does officially support the following
models of iPad:

iPad Pro 12.9" / 9.7"
iPad Air / Air 2
iPad mini 4 / 3

I recently purchased a refurbished iPad 3, and I find that the app
does work with that device; but in the limited time I have
experimented with it, I find it works more slowly and less efficiently
than I did with either my past iPhone 4S or my current iPhone 6. I
will keep trying to refine my knowledge of this.

I understand that an Android version of the KNFB Reader has been
created, too. I have no idea whatsoever about the availability of or
the effectiveness of the KNFB Reader as it applies to any mobile
phones or tablets except for those produced by Apple.

Carliss, keep in mind that the list you are writing to is dedicated to
JAWS, which is intended for the PC and which is produced by a company
that has no connection whatsoever to K-NFB Reading Technologies. So
for further help along these lines, I suggest you either write to
support@knfbreader.com or call 877-547-1500. Also, feel free to

Re: How do I install the OCR component in JAWS 16?

After installing OB and then trying jaws convenient OCR I kept getting
a message that the jaws OCR package was not installed (which is why I
tried installing it from the FS website and also doing a jaws repair
then re-install).

It took uninstalling OB and re-installing jaws before convenient OCR
worked once more.

It can be downloaded and installed from the same page as the jaws
installer.

Note that I recently tried installing OpenBook and after doing so jaws
convenient OCR ceased functioning (I even tried re-installing both jaws and

the convenient OCR package without success). It required uninstalling
OpenBook for jaws convenient OCR to work again. I keep meaning to try
un-installing jaws, installing OpenBook and then re-installing jaws and see

if that fixes the problem but I have not got around to doing so.

Hi All,
I recently did a typical install of JAWS 16 on my HP laptop. When I
try to use the JAWS OCR, JAWS says the component is not installed.
Please advise on how I install the OCR.

Sincerely,
Timothy Ford

Hi,
If one had Open Book, what would be the order of installation of the JAWS
OCR?
Separate question.
If one has a great earlier version but very stable version of JAWS 16,
Can one download and use the installer for JAWS OCr?

Re: How do I install the OCR component in JAWS 16?

 

It can recognize text on screens which are otherwise inaccessible and if there are elements like a Next button or a link you can click it with the Jaws cursor. I have had installation screens of software which were just blank to Jaws and when I ran Convenient OCR on them I was able to do what needed to be done.
Also, if you open a PDF file which is an image you can OCR the entire document with a single layered keystroke without ever bringing up Openbook. I also own Openbook, but ever since Convenient OCR can do entire PDF documents I haven't used it once and I don't even have it installed any more. If I need to scan a paper document I either use my iPhone with KNFB Reader or I just scan it on my Fujitsu Scansnap at my business which is a sheet scanner and it can scan a stack of 10 double sided pages in less than 30 seconds, then I just select the Save to File option which saves the scan as a PDF, I open the PDF and press Jaws Key + Space followed by O and D which is the keystroke to do OCR on the entire PDF document. The result gets put in the virtual viewer, if I need to keep it I can just to a Select All, then copy and paste it into Notepad, Word or wherever.
I think Convenient OCR is the biggest feature in Jaws since quick nav keys for the internet.

Sieghard
