Re: How To Stop Narrator And Magnifier From Automatically Starting When Booting Up Computer

Sieghard:

 

Since this is my own personal computer, I do not have a pin.

 

At the log-on screen, after the Windows 7 start-up  sound, I just click on my profile name, and, after a few seconds, I get the second startup sound.

 

At this point, Jaws does not consistently launch, either at the log-on screen, or at the beginning screen after I’ve clicked on my profile.

Tom, do you use a Microsoft Id and password to sign in or did you set up a PIN? Have you tried to press enter after giving your computer a bit of time to boot up? On my Windows 10 laptop Jaws also does not usually speak at the logon screen until I press enter, then it asks me for my PIN.

Go into control panel,

 

Again go into ease of access center,

E=ease of access center,

Press enter,

Now tab until you hear;

Make the computer easier to see link, press enter,

Now tab and uncheck the box,

Turn on Magnifier

Now tab ok.

Hope this helps.

David:

 

Your instructions for preventing Narrator from automatically starting when I boot my computer worked.

 

Thanks very much.

 

I'm still seeing the magnifier automatically come up though, and don't know how to eliminate that issue.

 

Also, I have now upgraded to the latest build of Jaws 18, and am finding that my failure to re-start at the login screen issue has re-appeared.

 

I have the box checked to start the computer at the log-on screen, as well as the box checked to always start Jaws for this user.

 

I wonder if the automatic activation of the magnifier is creating the failure of Jaws to consistently  start.

 

Someone on the list recently posted a detailed set of instructions for dealing with the inconsistent Jaws start issue at the logon screen, but I can't seem to find them in my saved files.

 

Any help with this continuing issue would be appreciated.

Try the following;

Go into control panel;

E=ease of access center;

Now tab until you hear;

 

Use the computer without a display link;

Use the computer without a display

When you select these tools, they will automatically start each time you

sign in.

Now uncheck the following boxes;

 

Hear text read aloud

Turn on Narrator

Narrator reads aloud any text on the screen. You will need speakers.

Turn on Audio Description

Hear descriptions of what's happening in videos (when available).

 

Now when you boot the computer narrator should not come up.

Hello, everyone.

 

I am experiencing a very strange problem when booting up my current windows 7 laptop.

 

Whenever I boot up the computer, I often have to go through the process 2 or 3 times in order for Jaws to start speaking.  And, when this happens, I now also automatically get launched into Narrator and something called the magnifier.  The magnifier is set at 200%.

 

I can exit out of the magnifier and out of Narrator, but this is rather inconvenient to say the least.

 

How can I get things back to the point that, when booting up the computer, all that comes up is Jaws.

 

I’m using Jaws 17 here.

We have actual phones, but the accesibility of those phones is somewhat questionable (I'll be able to poke at it more when I go back into the office on Monday). I'm banking on being able to make the desk phone I have do my tellings, but in the event I haven't, I've already got clearance to deploy a softphone - and I'll be one of a few people who've decided they prefer going that route. Still, I'd rather not kill my cell phone's battery dealing with work things, and if I'm gonna need to pay for a client anyway I'd rather it be for a platform I'm already required to be attached to.

If somebody works for an organisation which uses a large scale Voip solution actual phones may no longer exist and employees are expected to place and receive all calls via their PC’s softphone. If this is the case using an iPhone even with an accessible SIP client like Bria or Groundwire is not a solution.

That's a different beast, actually. The only thing I'm interested in is a softphone that does the making of calls and junk, since while I *am* in a queue, it maybe receives one call a day. If they're working for an actual call center, where their entire job consists of being on the phone, they may want to discuss with their employer.

Correct me if I’m wrong here, but most companies require you to use their Soft Phone application.  I currently have folks whom I support in the work place who use a Cicso solutions, called Desktop agent.  I’ve also played around with the Avaya Agent, and have heard that the In-Contact soft phone application works with JAWS.  All of them are not very easy to work with on the surface.  Both Avaya and Cisco do have some hot key functionality that helps out a good bit.

Maybe so, but I run a retail business and not a phone company and I just don’t have time to sit there for hours trying to configure this. The same goes for email and webservers, you just have to choose your wars because if you fight on too many fronts you won’t win anywhere.

I tried Ringcentral once years ago, but at the time my internet was only 6 Mb down and 1  up and it was just not fast enough. Now I have 25 down and 5 up and this coming week I get fibre with 125 down and 10 up so I’ll have plenty f bandwidth to use a Voip phone system if I want. I really liked what Ringcentral has to offer, only thing I don’t like is that the website which, by the way, gives you all the control you could want, is not very accessible at all.

Hi,

 

Wow, this can get pretty expensive. On another note, which services would you recommend if you have any knowledge? What I am after is a hosted solution like Ringcentral. I quite like what Ringcentral offers, but their website was hopeless the last time I tried it, very poor accessibility with Jaws and even their iOS app was not accessible with Voiceover.

I tried to explain to their customer service that a large company like Ringcentral should really improve this and offer good accessibility, but I didn't even get the impression the guy would pass this on up the chain.

I would like something which is comprehensive as in offering a toll free number, either unlimited or significant incoming and outgoing North America wide calling, internet faxing and SMS via their app and of course calling via their app, voice mail, auto attendent, music on hold, extensions and all the usual stuff.

  1. Express talk by NCH cheapest $130.00 business – 250.00? Enterprise. It is a lot cheaper than the others; however, you get what you pay for. It has a lot of bells and whistles but I had a little trouble in configuration.
  2. VTGO-PC-508 by IP Blue$ 750.00. I had some accessibility issues when testing this model.
  3. Accessaphone by Tenacity $1,500.00 the best; however, configuration is my current hang up at this moment for I myself is in the market for an accessible softphone. I was told by tenacity that a underlying cisco system works best with the Accessaphone.

Even the expensive VT-Go that was mentioned which, by the way, seems to have a dedicated “accessibility version” has a trial period, you can download and it’s fully functional, but I think calls are limited to 2 minutes and there is an overall call limit of I think 20 calls.

Wow, this can get pretty expensive. On another note, which services would you recommend if you have any knowledge? What I am after is a hosted solution like Ringcentral. I quite like what Ringcentral offers, but their website was hopeless the last time I tried it, very poor accessibility with Jaws and even their iOS app was not accessible with Voiceover.

I tried to explain to their customer service that a large company like Ringcentral should really improve this and offer good accessibility, but I didn't even get the impression the guy would pass this on up the chain.

I would like something which is comprehensive as in offering a toll free number, either unlimited or significant incoming and outgoing North America wide calling, internet faxing and SMS via their app and of course calling via their app, voice mail, auto attendent, music on hold, extensions and all the usual stuff.

Hi,

There is three that I know of. They work(accessibility) in the order of their price.

  1. Express talk by NCH cheapest $130.00 business – 250.00? Enterprise. It is a lot cheaper than the others; however, you get what you pay for. It has a lot of bells and whistles but I had a little trouble in configuration.
  2. VTGO-PC-508 by IP Blue$ 750.00. I had some accessibility issues when testing this model.
  3. Accessaphone by Tenacity $1,500.00 the best; however, configuration is my current hang up at this moment for I myself is in the market for an accessible softphone. I was told by tenacity that a underlying cisco system works best with the Accessaphone.

Hi folks,

 

My new job uses a VOIP phone that isn't exactly the most accessible. So because of that, I'm in the hunt for a halfway decent softphone. Anyone happen to know of one and wouldn't mind sharing details? Using JAWS 14, but will probably upgrade to 18 when work installs it on my machine.


Re: How To Stop Narrator And Magnifier From Automatically Starting When Booting Up Computer

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Tom, do you use a Microsoft Id and password to sign in or did you set up a PIN? Have you tried to press enter after giving your computer a bit of time to boot up? On my Windows 10 laptop Jaws also does not usually speak at the logon screen until I press enter, then it asks me for my PIN.

David:

 

Your instructions for preventing Narrator from automatically starting when I boot my computer worked.

 

Thanks very much.

 

I'm still seeing the magnifier automatically come up though, and don't know how to eliminate that issue.

 

Also, I have now upgraded to the latest build of Jaws 18, and am finding that my failure to re-start at the login screen issue has re-appeared.

 

I have the box checked to start the computer at the log-on screen, as well as the box checked to always start Jaws for this user.

 

I wonder if the automatic activation of the magnifier is creating the failure of Jaws to consistently  start.

 

Someone on the list recently posted a detailed set of instructions for dealing with the inconsistent Jaws start issue at the logon screen, but I can't seem to find them in my saved files.

 

Any help with this continuing issue would be appreciated.

Use the computer without a display link;

Use the computer without a display

When you select these tools, they will automatically start each time you

Now uncheck the following boxes;

 

Hear text read aloud

Turn on Narrator

Narrator reads aloud any text on the screen. You will need speakers.

Turn on Audio Description

Hear descriptions of what's happening in videos (when available).

 

Now when you boot the computer narrator should not come up.

Subject: How To Stop Narrator And Magnifier From Automatically Starting When Booting Up Computer

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I am experiencing a very strange problem when booting up my current windows 7 laptop.

 

Whenever I boot up the computer, I often have to go through the process 2 or 3 times in order for Jaws to start speaking.  And, when this happens, I now also automatically get launched into Narrator and something called the magnifier.  The magnifier is set at 200%.

 

I can exit out of the magnifier and out of Narrator, but this is rather inconvenient to say the least.

 

How can I get things back to the point that, when booting up the computer, all that comes up is Jaws.

 

I’m using Jaws 17 here.

Maybe so, but I run a retail business and not a phone company and I just don’t have time to sit there for hours trying to configure this. The same goes for email and webservers, you just have to choose your wars because if you fight on too many fronts you won’t win anywhere.

I tried Ringcentral once years ago, but at the time my internet was only 6 Mb down and 1  up and it was just not fast enough. Now I have 25 down and 5 up and this coming week I get fibre with 125 down and 10 up so I’ll have plenty f bandwidth to use a Voip phone system if I want. I really liked what Ringcentral has to offer, only thing I don’t like is that the website which, by the way, gives you all the control you could want, is not very accessible at all.

This company doesn't particularly care, so long as what you bring to the table works for you. Most people just use the deskphone that's right there, but that isn't exactly the most accessiblething in the world either.

Correct me if I’m wrong here, but most companies require you to use their Soft Phone application.  I currently have folks whom I support in the work place who use a Cicso solutions, called Desktop agent.  I’ve also played around with the Avaya Agent, and have heard that the In-Contact soft phone application works with JAWS.  All of them are not very easy to work with on the surface.  Both Avaya and Cisco do have some hot key functionality that helps out a good bit.

Maybe so, but I run a retail business and not a phone company and I just don’t have time to sit there for hours trying to configure this. The same goes for email and webservers, you just have to choose your wars because if you fight on too many fronts you won’t win anywhere.

I tried Ringcentral once years ago, but at the time my internet was only 6 Mb down and 1  up and it was just not fast enough. Now I have 25 down and 5 up and this coming week I get fibre with 125 down and 10 up so I’ll have plenty f bandwidth to use a Voip phone system if I want. I really liked what Ringcentral has to offer, only thing I don’t like is that the website which, by the way, gives you all the control you could want, is not very accessible at all.

No, you'd still need to roll your own features like that. But I find most hosted PBX solutions aren't worth what you pay them. For the same price you can put together a system you can actually controll.

Hi,

 

Wow, this can get pretty expensive. On another note, which services would you recommend if you have any knowledge? What I am after is a hosted solution like Ringcentral. I quite like what Ringcentral offers, but their website was hopeless the last time I tried it, very poor accessibility with Jaws and even their iOS app was not accessible with Voiceover.

I tried to explain to their customer service that a large company like Ringcentral should really improve this and offer good accessibility, but I didn't even get the impression the guy would pass this on up the chain.

I would like something which is comprehensive as in offering a toll free number, either unlimited or significant incoming and outgoing North America wide calling, internet faxing and SMS via their app and of course calling via their app, voice mail, auto attendent, music on hold, extensions and all the usual stuff.

Hi,

There is three that I know of. They work(accessibility) in the order of their price.

  1. Express talk by NCH cheapest $130.00 business – 250.00? Enterprise. It is a lot cheaper than the others; however, you get what you pay for. It has a lot of bells and whistles but I had a little trouble in configuration.
  2. VTGO-PC-508 by IP Blue$ 750.00. I had some accessibility issues when testing this model.
  3. Accessaphone by Tenacity $1,500.00 the best; however, configuration is my current hang up at this moment for I myself is in the market for an accessible softphone. I was told by tenacity that a underlying cisco system works best with the Accessaphone.

Hi folks,

 

My new job uses a VOIP phone that isn't exactly the most accessible. So because of that, I'm in the hunt for a halfway decent softphone. Anyone happen to know of one and wouldn't mind sharing details? Using JAWS 14, but will probably upgrade to 18 when work installs it on my machine.


Re: softphones that work with JAWS?

Let us know how it tests out, when you can.  I have a client who uses the Cisco app, and they have several things they need to do through their desktop agent.  I wonder how much of that would be accessible.  One thing in particular is how many calls are in the cue.

Well, depending on which version of acrobat you have you could
save it as a Word, or copy and paste it into word, but I would do
something different. If you save it into your Google drive you can

save it as Word which can save as PDF.
