Guys,

 

I just got off the line with Cisco

Presale and the price is not that prohibitive. I was told it would be less than $120.00 per user; however, they cater more to business interest.

Yes, they all do have trials. I just got off the line with Accessaphone support and I was told that Accessaphone works better with cisco Unified Call Manager which is about $20,000.00. it's best used in a company server environment because the price is quite prohibitive for individual use. The problem with Accessaphone is for individual is the configuration of the tapi driver. I haven't as yet found a tapi driver that is configurable for proper configuration of the Accessaphone. They suggest I download a tapi driver from a German company.

https://download.estos.de/download?2024__en-

however, I've yet to get it configured. This tapi driver requires assistance from your ISP. It is quite beastly at this time. if you can get a tapi driver to work with Accessaphone please drop me a note

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.

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.

And it has been years since I have encountered a laptop that actually

If you can name a brand or line of full-sized laptops that still

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.

The same goes for email and webservers, you just have to choose your

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

How Do I Customize JAWS 10.0...

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

To work in conjunction with a spectragram? I'm hopefully going to make ADX Trax Pro accessible to screenreaders, and I'm not sure how to configure JAWS to recognize the components of a spectragram. One of the guys at Audionamix, Steve Oliver, told me that the spectragram in ADX Trax Pro consists of many shapes. Here's what he says.
 
 
<blockquote>
Regarding the spectrogram: The spectrogram is a visualization of the actual audio being processed. It is like a graph, where frequency (in Hertz) is the Y axis, and time is the X axis. Because the information is displayed dynamically, based on the sounds within the file, there are no preset shapes like the ones you described.

For example, imagine an audio file of you speaking the sentence "Hi, my name is Annabelle" while a police siren goes by in the background. On the spectrogram, your voice would appear as stacks of wavy lines (representing the fundamental frequency of your voice and the corresponding harmonics above it). Each word would have its own stack of wavy lines that would change depending on the word and how you said it, and the unique characteristics of your voice. Also there would be consonants sounds that might look like patches of noise in the higher frequency range. The siren would look like a long line slowly curving up and down from left to right. If I said the words instead of you, these shapes would change because of the qualities of my voice, and what speed I spoke at.

For these reasons there are almost infinite shapes that could be displayed in the spectrogram. Do you have any ideas how that might work with a screen reader? We'd certainly like to make it possible.

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.

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.

  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?

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

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.

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.

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.

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.

I wonder if you can use the soft phone apps on a trial basis for like a week to ten days prior to purchasing it.  I might be interested in doing that, but I would like to test drive it first.

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: WHAT HAPPENED TO SPOTIFY BLIND

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

John Martyn, who has DoItBlind.com is the developer of Spotifyblind,RhapsodyBlind and BlindTunes as well as scripts for OneNote.

I just went to his website and it is a bit strange since he just has some informational text on there and a link to Blindspot.com who is doing scripts for Quickbooks. It sounds like he is involved in this and I’m not sure if he has dropped all his other proects because there are no links to download or learn about any of the other products he used to have.

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.

Re: putting a shortcut on the desktop

Not all keyboards have an application key.
If you get Pin to Start and More, open "More" and select "Open File Location.
If it is Word you want on the desktop then the place where you end up is already a Word shortcut, you can then just copy it and paste it after you close that Window and press Windows Key+M to minimize to the desktop.
