WE to JAWS documentation?

Shannon
 

Hi all,

I got my code and my copy of JAWS is live.

 

I now belong to quite a few mailing lists, and in one of the MANY messages regarding the WE to JAWS conversion it was mentioned that there were some specific documents on the topic or maybe it was a pod cast?

Has anyone else heard this? I sure can’t find it.

If anyone has the link for such things I would appreciate it if you could share it.

Ha Ha I would really love a JAWS to WE translation guide!

So many of the concepts are using different language than I am used to.

I am sure having trouble with the perspective of which curser is giving the feedback. Can I change the voices for all the different cursers? So I can tell who is talking to me?

 

 

Thanks

Shannon


Re: key labels

 

As was already described go to the Settings centre, make sure you load the default file with Shift+Control+D, then type "label", expand the "Key Labels" area with the spacebar. Use first letter navigation to find the key you want or arrow down the list, if you want tab not to speak press the spacebar when you are on the tab key entry to change it from "Speak" to "Mute". That's it.

Your Jaws installation is not messed up, the spacebar is what you use to expand an area in the Settings Centre.

One path to answer your question:

Insert keyboard 6 (settings center)

Tab to the tree and you will hear 'manage key labels dot dot dot'

Hi Don,
 
Try the following:

2. Arrow down to, Keyboard, & press right arrow to open.
3. Arrow down to, Manage Key Labels...., & press the spacebar to open.  Note:  Do not press enter, pressing enter will close the Settings Center.
4. After pressing the spacebar you will be in a list of keys.  Arrow down to the key you want to mute, & Tab 1 time to the, Toggle Mute Button, & press the spacebar to mute.  You'll hear Jaws announce, for example the Tab key, Tab Tab mute.
5. Tab to, Okay, press the spacebar, tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, tab to, Okay, & press enter to save your change & close the Settings Center.
Take care.

Re: decaccess 32

Shai
 

Hi,
As far as I know, this synth is not available for JAWS any longer
despite being a supported synthesizer as part of the JAWS synthesizer
and braille manager. I tried calling FreedomScientific about this a
few years back as this is my favorite synth too and they do not sell
an authorization for it any longer.
The only solution to this I have found is to obtain a DecTalk Express
hardware synth if you can find one. These usually appear from time to
time online.

Re: adding voices

Don H
 

OK so I got the voices to work as you described and I thank you for that. I now have the vocalizer Tom High voice as my default syn. However when I open the Jaws UI with insert j I am switched back to another voice. Any way to get the voice to work everywhere?

Technical Support at Freedom Scientific walked me through the following.
I'm guessing you are talking about the Vocalizer Expressive 2 voices. They actually don't show up anywhere one would expect.
Go to the JAWS menu (JawsKey + J), then activate the "Options."
After that, go to the Voice Adjustment menu.
You will see some software synthesizers, including Eloquence.
You will have a Vocalizer Expressive Voice Installed. You probably already had one installed. So, it looks like nothing happened. Well, that may be true, but it probably is just the counterintuitive way Freedom Scientific set this up. I'm guessing you are looking for Susan, Allison, or one of the other voice persons. They are there; they are just hidden. Arrow down to the Vocalizer Expressive synthesizer. Then press Alt + V. You might have to tab once (I don't remember specifically, but you are not more than two tabs away after you hit Alt + V).
I think you can now arrow up and down to pick your voice, e.g., Susan or Alison. Arrow down to pick the voice you want to use (at least part of the time).
Then, DO THE MOST IMPORTANT THING OF ALL! Tab over, way over, until you come to a "Save As" prompt.
At that point save this "Person" as a synthesizer, e.g., SusanVoice or AlisonVoice.
Then hit apply and OK.
Now, when you do a voice adjustment, you will have synthesizers that match the name and settings for the "persons, e.g., SusanVoice."
By the way, you do this process EVEN if you downloaded the big files individually. Remember, the compressed voices all come in one file.
I'm guessing you downloaded the big files that are linked to the "person" names. That, in fact, is what fooled me.
I downloaded Susan, and I illogically thought I would find a file installed as Susan. NOT SO.
ALL the voices are tucked away in the Vocalizer Expressive menu.

I'm still using 16 (which may reduce the value of my input),
and have used it on 2010, 2013, and 2016. The JAWS cursors
function like mouse buttons, and allow you to go outside
the typing area, where angels sometimes fear to tread.



As for the learning curve, take it as you need it. focus
on the basic tutorial, which will tell you everything you
need to get started. Learn fancy features as you need them.
It's a really slick program with good ergonomics, and runs
with a huge program library



When you need it, you'll love the PDF functionality, which,
when combined with the recent PDF-friendly features in
Office, puts real power on your desktop. Many, if not most,
offices use this versatile format, and it'll probably mean
you will not have to purchase the full-blown Acrobat
program, which will save either you or your employer a
nickel or two.

Hi Shannon! JAWS offers a lot of helpful training materials
that are free. To locate these, navigate to the JAWS Window
by pressing either Alt Tab or Insert plus the letter J.
Insert is also the 0 key on the number pad on a regular
desktop keyboard, provided that your num lock setting is set
to off. Once you are there, press Alt plus the letter H to
bring up the help menu. Then you can use the arrow keys to
find the training option. Press enter to open this menu.
You should land in a table of contents for all of the
training materials. Depending on how JAWS was installed on
your system, you can either select the particular module you
are wanting to read, or download it. You can use the arrow
keys to navigate through the page, and find all of the
choices. I hope this is helpful for you. Good luck! I
know that being a new JAWS user can be very overwhelming at
first. I was there and I haven't forgotten how confusing it
was for me. I urge you to go through these training
modules. They will be very helpful to you. They are guided
as well with audio to listen to, if you don't want to read
the information.

Subject: New user here; JAWs questions and concerns



Good morning,

I am a potential new user of JAWS. I would be one of many
conversions from WindowEyes.

I have downloaded the trial of JAWS 18 and pretty concerned
about what it can and cannot do.

I know that there is a large learning curve I will have to
go through, and that is only one of my concerns.

I have been reading the list for the last few days and a few
things mentioned by others concern me.

I also use here at work Office 2010, Outlook, Word and Excel
all the time.

I saw a mention of excel not working well with JAWS? Is that
true? That would be a deal breaker for me.

I use spread sheets every single day to do my job. I also
use on a daily basis the MS Query feature. Will JAWS handle
the queries?

I make mail merge documents frequently and they tie to the
MS Databases.



Will Jaws work with outlook 2010? I have over 10 different
email profiles set up and I need access to them.

Does JAWS have a way to search the screen for text or
buttons to be clicked by the mouse or a "HotSpot" feature as
WE did/does? I use that feature everyday along with custom
scripts to get access to the time keeping software programs.

The language in the control panel seams so foreign to me. I
can't tell, but it seems as if Jaws acknowledges 4 kinds of
cursers? A virtual curser, a JAWS curser, PC Curser, and
something called Mouse overlay?

Is the Jaws curser the mouse? What is the Mouse overlay? Can
I read the screen with the mouse?



Since I am new and don't know how it works and how to
configure it I can't tell what I can and can't do.

I can tell that many functions of the accounting program,
and the three programs that are involved in time tracking do
not behave well and most likely are going to require special
custom scripts.

Before I spend a lot of money and time I want to know if
Jaws can even do the little stuff like Office and surfing
the web?

If JAWS doesn't like Office 2010 what version does it like?

Thanks for your time.

Shannon
