Re: labeling a new key

I understand that but I never got a answer to my original question and that was can you add a new key combination like Shift F5 to the set of key labels. It was easy to do within Window Eyes but I don't see anything in the help documentation to do it with Jaws. Maybe this should be one of the functions from Window Eyes that could be added to Jaws.

Outlook 2007 Question

Pastor Gil Pries <gilp@...>
 

Hi Listers,

 

I have a Outlook 2007 question.

When  I go in to my empty in-box, Jaws says, “Ere are no items in this view,” instead of saying, “There are no items in this view.”

For some reason, Jaws is not seeing the t h in there.

Is there some way to fix this?

Thanks,

Re: strange dropbox issue

Gudrun Brunot
 

Jed: the option is now called "copy Dropbox link." So, I go to system tray with Jaws 11. Arrow to dropbox; Enter to open the dropbox menu; press Enter to open the dropbox folder; find the file in the folder where you stored it; hit the applications key (right side, left of the control key.) Find "Copy dropbox link." That shoud do it. I hope it does.

Re: Convenient OCR

Hi,

 

This could well be because you have not set online PDF documents to be read in the Adobe reader thus they are being opened by your internet browser. Below my signature block I have copied an email from Brian Vogel from last year on this subject. I hope it helps.

 

 

Take care,

If you don’t know where you’re going,

How will you know when you get there?

 

==========  original Message  ==========

       I've run into this problem with clients and it's the most frustrating with regard to Internet Explorer and PDF files.  I hate having PDFs open within any web browser and have shut this off such that any PDF link I click opens in the PDF Viewer of my choosing that I have set as the system default PDF viewer.  Here's the advice I got from Freedom Scientific last December that worked.  If you're not using JAWS what's actually being done should be translatable to the screen reader you're using.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: The option to view PDF documents in the browser is no longer found in the Preferences. You must use the Set Up Assistant to find this.

This is an Adobe Reader setting that is causing this to take place. If you walk through the instructions below, you can change this setting:

A. Using the Accessibility Set Up Assistant

When you launch a PDF the first time, the accessibility set up assistant opens. If the accessibility wizard has already run, do the following to open it:

1. Press ALT+E to open the Edit menu.

2. Press Y to select Accessibility submenu.

3. Press ENTER on Set Up Assistant. The first page of this five page dialog box opens. The default choice is fine, press ENTER to move to the next page.

4. On the second page you can change things if you wish, but by default it is OK. Press ENTER to move to page three.

5. On the third page you can change things if you wish, but by default it is OK. Press ENTER to move to page four.

6. On the fourth page, if you want to use the list of links, list of headings, and the JAWS find command so on to access long documents, change the radio button from

"For large documents, only read the currently visible pages"

to

"Read the entire document at once."

If you do not make this change, in long documents JAWS only sees the links and headings on the current page. Additionally, JAWS can only search the current page with the JAWS find command. If you do select read the entire document at once, it may take a few seconds longer to process large documents, but it is worth it to be able to see the links and  headings in the entire document, or to search the entire document with the JAWS find.

7. Press ENTER to move to page five of the Set Up Assistant.

8. If the check box for Reopen documents to the last viewed page is checked, you may want to uncheck this. It is a personal preference. TAB through until you reach the check box for "Display PDF documents in the web browser," and uncheck it.

9. Press ENTER to activate the Done button.

 

B. Additional changes in Adobe Reader XI preferences.

1. Press CTRL+K to open the Adobe Reader XI preferences.

2. In the Categories list on the left side of the dialog box, choose Accessibility.

3. Press TAB to move to the item, Show Portfolios in Files mode (not checked by default) - check this.

4. Press TAB to move back to the Categories list and choose Security (Enhanced).

5. Press TAB to move to Enable Protected Mode at startup (checked by default) - uncheck this.

6. Press TAB to move to the OK button, and activate it with the SPACEBAR.

That might be true, but I’ve not gotten it to work on Online versions of PDF documents. When something in inaccessible PDF is required for reading in my MSU classes, I have to always save the file before opening it and doing the convinent OCR thing to it. I wonder if VFO will have something in later updates of JAWS to allow one to just read from online versions of these documents, especially with university texts? Of course, MSU has a secure website, but there are things on there which JAWS doesn’t work with sometimes, or at least, they don’t play nicely all the time.

If you install Jaws from a disk it installs automatically and if you have an active internet connection when you install Jaws after downloading the executable file it will also install.
You invoke it with the layered keystroke Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by O and then "D" if you want to recognize a PDF document that is open in Acrobat Reader.
You can't recognize JPEG, Bitmap, PNG files or other images which are open in Windows Photoviewer or other applications the same way you can recognize an entire PDF document in Acrobat Reader. You can, however, open the image file and try to use the command to recognize what is on the screen or in the Window using "S" or "W" instead of "D" after pressing Jaws Key+Spacebar and O.
Alternatively, you could use an online converter to convert the JPG, PNG or other file to PDF, then open it with Acrobat Reader and run convenient OCR. It's a very powerful feature.

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.

I wonder if VFO will have something in later updates of JAWS to allow one to just read from online versions of these documents, especially with university texts? Of course, MSU has a secure website, but there are things on there which JAWS doesn’t work with sometimes, or at least, they don’t play nicely all the time.

If you install Jaws from a disk it installs automatically and if you have an active internet connection when you install Jaws after downloading the executable file it will also install.
You invoke it with the layered keystroke Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by O and then "D" if you want to recognize a PDF document that is open in Acrobat Reader.
You can't recognize JPEG, Bitmap, PNG files or other images which are open in Windows Photoviewer or other applications the same way you can recognize an entire PDF document in Acrobat Reader. You can, however, open the image file and try to use the command to recognize what is on the screen or in the Window using "S" or "W" instead of "D" after pressing Jaws Key+Spacebar and O.
Alternatively, you could use an online converter to convert the JPG, PNG or other file to PDF, then open it with Acrobat Reader and run convenient OCR. It's a very powerful feature.

Can convenient ocr work if you have a screen shot? I have one in an ms word file that I think is in the .png format.

Does convenient ocr come automatically installed, or do I have to install it separately?

Thanks,

You need to first open the document in Adobe, and then use the OCR.

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.

Carol
