Hi Ted!  What is the model of the ear piece that you’re using?  Just curious!  Thanks!

I had a Plantronics double headset once that allowed me to listen to calls and JAWS.  Trouble is, I wound up with a cauliflower ear; at the end of the day I looked like Dumbo.  We sent it back, and I now do the same job with a single ear piece.

That is an unreasonable requirement. Not many people can follow too

audio sources at the same time... Not to mention the potential conflicts

that running 2 screen readers simultaneously may cause.

Re: Using Chat Windows with JAWS 18

Hi Nancy! This is very interesting to me. Based on what you're saying
here, whoever is setting up your AT is making this tougher on you than it
really should be. At least, I think that's the case. I say that because it
seems to me that if Narrator can read the incoming messages, JAWS should be
able to read them as well. To say that you cannot run both JAWS and
Narrator together is not accurate. You can do that, but I wouldn't
recommend it. You can switch JAWS to your headset, and allow Narrator to
run on the computer's sound card, if you need to do that.
My suggestion would be to figure out a way to make JAWS read things, when
you want it read, and not when you're in the middle of a call, because that
can be super distracting. It would be better for you to control when
messages are read.
I am sending a link below with some information that I found. I'm looking
for a list of shortcut keys that may help you as well, but haven't found
that document. I also did a search on my phone for a Revation Communicator
App, and I found one. I don't know if this would be easier to interact with
or not.

This is a call center also and at first I could listen to JAWS with one ear
and the caller with the other ear. Then we went with In Contact phone
system and I got both JAWS and the caller in the same ear. A little tricky
but I learned real fast to put people on hold so I could function with JAWS.
Now it's this new Revation Communicator system and I think they believe that
as long as what everyone else sees on the screen is read out to me that I
can magically take it all in and process it accordingly -- and stay sane in
the process. Oh yeah, the other part of this is that this is the first time
this company (whoever it is that makes this Revation communicator system)
has endeavored to make their system work with a screen reader. So lots of
assumptions as to how wonderful it will all be. We shall see.

Re: Multiple JAWS Versions On One License

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

It was one of those situations where I was having a lot of trouble with Juno, which I eventually abandoned.  Furthermore, I was using Chrome, which was a no-no at that time.  The crash trashed the authorization, and Restore brought it back—end of story.]

 

Another time my antivirus put the volume control in quarantine—gotta watch those volume controls.  Of course, I got it out but, in doing so, lost it;  Restore fixed that too.

 

Overall, that’s one of the coolest tools Microsoft has ever given us.

System restore wouldn't bring the authorization back if it mysteriously went missing. I don't think Windows considers it a settings file.

That depends exactly what problems you're having, and what version you're running now. That may be beneficial to put in a new thread. To your question, using the versions of JAWS you're licensed for won't use up your SMA's. Only if you have to do a reinstall, or somehow the authorization gets deleted.

It's perfectly fine, and probably encouraged. You're authorized to run any version of JAWS up to and including whichever version your SMA stops at. In the "about JAWS" dialogue box, it'll give you a number of upgrades remaining. This is the number of versions of JAWS you're authorized to use with this license. You could have every single one of them installed on your machine and switch between them as needed if you were so inclined.

Subject: Re: Using Chat Windows with JAWS 18


This sounds like an issue for the IT department.There are so many
variables with a system like that.

What phone system is it? Is it proprietary?
Does it speak or does Jaws?
If Jaws is reading the chat window then speech history will have the
message. insert + spacebar then h.
Generally you dont want two screen readers running at the same time.

Hi List,

We're starting to use a phone system at work that includes chat capability. I'm new to Windows 10 and to JAWS so struggling a little to keep up.

Since apparently I'm supposed to be able to listen to JAWS and the TTS at the same time, if I'm focusing on JAWS when a chat message comes in and is spoken by the TTS, is there a way to have the message reread so I can hear what I missed the first time?

Are there any command conflicts between JAWS and Narrator if they have to both run at the same time?

Hope that makes sense.

Nancy






Re: Fax by email services?

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

That's correct, there's no "free" option. But MyFax does have a 30-day trial. I signed up for it and sent my first fax
today entirely by email client, all went well. I'll tinker with their web page for changing account setting in the near
future.

Thanks for everyone's input on this.

Firefox Development Tools and WebEx Screen Sharing

Walker, Michael E
 

Hi,

 

When accessing the debugger in Firefox, what is the best way to get it to read the source code with JAWS, especially when I need to do things like select it to interact with various aspects of the debugger? I find that when forms mode kicks on, the text box is no longer readable with my arrow keys. I cannot tell what line I am on in the code.

 

My other question is: When using WebEx’s screen sharing functionality, how can I get back to the WebEx Meeting Center, when ALT+TAB will not work?

 

Thanks,

Mike

System restore wouldn't bring the authorization back if it mysteriously went missing. I don't think Windows considers it a settings file.

Even then, System Restore might put you right again.  It worked for me a few years back after a faulty shutdown.

That depends exactly what problems you're having, and what version you're running now. That may be beneficial to put in a new thread. To your question, using the versions of JAWS you're licensed for won't use up your SMA's. Only if you have to do a reinstall, or somehow the authorization gets deleted.

I am running Windows 7 and have some difficulties with the internet.  Do you think I would do any better if I were to put an older version of Jaws on my computer?  If so, which would you reccommend?  Thanks.  Also, would additional versions use up my SMAs?

Hi, it's Annabelle.

Freedom Scientific just upgraded my license of JAWS to JAWS 15 for free, and I have a couple important questions. First of all, is it OK for me to have two versions of JAWS on the same machine? More importantly, is it OK to have two versions on the same license?

 


Using the laptop layout gives you two Jaws keys

Lee Maschmeyer
 

Hi folks,

With the laptop keyboard layout you can use either the insert key or the caps lock key as the Jaws key--whichever is most convenient. I'm on a desktop computer but selected the laptop layout so when I'm too lazy to bring my left hand over to the Insert key I can use the caps lock instead.

Hi,

I just put the word "celebration" in the edit box and tabbed (I think twice) and pressed enter and got that there were four different meanings or whatever. Anyway, it did give a response.
