Carol:

I had this exact same problem with an earlier version of Jaws 18 here.

I recently upgraded to Jaws 18.0.2945, and now, Convenient OCR works fine.

Not sure what the issue was with the earlier version, but the update seems to have corrected it.

From what I can tell, you are doing the steps correctly.

I'm using Windows 7 here.

Hi,

I would like to read a pdf file with the Convenient OCR program. It is not working. I did it once on the first day I received my copy of Jaws.

Steps taken:
located the file in my user folder
pressed jaws key plus spacebar
pressed O and then D


I did the same thing again today. When I get to the press of the d, I get a sound and nothing happens. Is it possible I a) either made a mistake in what I did, or b) changed something in Jaws that won't allow me to do this now?

Thanks for the help.

The thing you're interested in stopping is under the Privacy Pane of Firefox Settings.

The two specific areas you will want to look through, and you should review both first because they influence each other, are History and Location Bar.

You may be able to achieve your aim just by unchecking everything under Location Bar, but if that doesn't do it you can manipulate what gets kept for history nine ways to Sunday.  You could also choose to always use Private browsing mode under the History section as well, in which case absolutely nothing will be remembered and if you wipe out whatever already is, it's like you're dealing with a perpetually clean slate.

Scanning Photographs

Dave...
 

David,
 
Let's be clear on this. JAWS does not do any scanning. You need a separate software package and a scanner to scan in a photograph from a hardcopy.
 
JAWS OCR will work on documents that have text, but will not work on a photographic images, whether its scanned in from hardcopy, or from a digital file on the computer;ter.
 
JAWS and OCR software packages do not do facial recognition.
 
You will also need.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I have AVG Antivirus Free Edition, and a recent update has rendered it inaccessible to JAWS. Specifically it did something where it won't let me access the menu from the System Tray like it used to. Also, I used to be able to fully access the main interface, but I think they messed with something where it's now made with Google Chrome. How do I get rid of AVG Zen? I have Antivirus Free, and it keeps telling me to renew my subscription. What's up with that? I don't have a paid subscription, and I don't think you would need one with AVG Antivirus Free.

Re: Is it possible to change the pitch of Eloquence?

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

What Carol calls the default cursor is actually called the “All Context” voice. Here is where you can adjust the upper pitch change.

The rest is correct, when you go to Voice Adjustment and press Alt+V to get to the voices combo box you land on “All Context”, if you listen to all Jaws says you hear this:

 

Voice Adjust: Combo box, All Contexts, 1 of 5, To change the selection use the Arrow keys.

So you are told that you are in a Combo box and to use the arrow keys to change the selection. If you arrow down you find the following options:

PC Cursor Voice

JAWS Cursor Voice

Keyboard Voice

Tutor and Message Voice

These are the 4 voices you can adjust independently, below are the things you can change for each:

Voice Person: Combo box, Reed, 1 of 8, To change the selection use the Arrow keys.
Voice Rate: 101 left right slider, 55 percent, To increase or decrease use the Arrow keys.

Voice Punctuation: Combo box, Most, 3 of 4, To change the selection use the Arrow keys.

Voice Pitch: 41, left right slider 40 percent, To increase or decrease use the Arrow keys.

The main one you want to change is the PC cursor voice, but of course the default Jaws cursor voice to me is also strange sounding and I use the above settings for all 4 voices as I don’t care to have a different voice for PC and Jaws cursor or for how the keyboard sounds when I press keys or for how messages sound.

If you want to quickly get to pitch just tab 4 times once you get to the voice you want to adjust. Don’t forget to tab to “OK” or “Apply” to save the changes.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Re: Eloquence pitch in jaws?
Yes, this can be done.  My instructions may not be the best, but I think you can figure it out since you have already been in the Jaws options and found
the voice settings.  From within the voices setting, choose voice adjustment.
Press alt-v to get to the combo box where you choose which cursor you want to modify.
you will get to an option where you can down arrow through options for default cursor, PC cursor, Jaws cursor, etc.
You can not have the option set to default.  After choosing the cursor you want to set, tab until you find the pitch setting. This is the next tab after
the punctuation setting.
You change it with the arrow keys.
Once you have it set, tab to save as and give it a name, something you will recognize, like Glen pitch 44  and press enter on OK.
You will be asked if you want to set this for the default.  Enter on yes or OK, I forgot what it is called at this point.
Now, you will have access to that voice whenever you want to use it.

How To Customize The Status Bar

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
To show number of lines, line number, or many other options  in the status bar in Word try the following:
1. Press F6 until Status bar is highlighted.  Or, until you hear Jaws report, Status Toolbar.  It should be the 2nd press of the F6 key.
2. Press Shift + F10 to show options.  This keystroke must be used because a right mouse click or pressing the application key will not.
3. Down arrow through the available options, and when you have found line count or something else of interest press the spacebar to check or uncheck
the item.
4. when done making modifications simply press AltF4 or escape key.
5. Review your status line to insure the settings have been properly modified.

I don't think you can get rid of the default search engine, but you can
change which one is used.

press alt to get the menubar, then t for tools, and o for options.
press the up or down arrow keys to select the search category.
press tab once.
press up or down arrow keys to select the search engine you want.
you can add additional search engines by tabbing to a link to add
additional ones. find the edit line and search for which one you want.

Subject: Firefox help needed

Hi, how do I prevent Jaws or any screen reader from saying something like
m.yahoo when I start to type an address into the address bar? I also want
to prevent it from showing a list of possible sites that it could be in a
list as I type. I would love to get rid of all search engines but I don't
see how this is possible I looked under search. I'm using latest Firefox
any help is appreciated.
