I keep all this stuff in a plain text file and edit it with Notepad on my Windows system. Many will tell you this is a horribly unsecure solution, but if you secure your devices and computers so that no one can access them but you, then it is quite secure. I’ve used this method for years and never had any unauthorized access to my accounts or credit cards. Sometimes the simplest solution is the best.

Hi all,

Any suggestion about a good password manager. I don’t know if this kind of software is called like that, but I am looking a software that allow me to store users names, passwords, but also other information like account numbers, credit card numbers. So should be something that manage passwords, but also other  kind of personal information.

Thanks for any advice regarding this software.

I thought I would check this out; my document saved just fine, but now I cannot find it. I used to go to Open Book on the desk top, hit enter on Open Book, and arrow down to my Open Book documents. Now Open Book opens, and I do not know where my saved Open Book documents are?

Cheers Kevin.

Hello Richard,

 

I do not have any idea what is going on with your system but, have you tried naming and saving a file before you start scanning.  OB has been bad about crashing on me for years on many many different computers including Win10 Creator 64 bit.

 

I learned a long time ago to name and save a file before I scanned too many pages.  If it crashes before you save, you loose every thing that you scanned.  Not so good if you have scanned a lot of pages.  And, for me, I have far less crashes if the file has been named.  I definitely do not know why.

 

While this information probably doesn’t help you very much, maybe it will save you a little time.

 

Good luck with tech support Monday.

 

James B

Thanks James for the suggestion.

Sadly, Openbook blows out even if I try and save a document with a different name before scanning.

It will be interesting to see what tech support says tomorrow.

I wonder if they are giving up development on Openbook.  As far as I know, I’m still on the beta team and nothing has been done in years.

Good morning.

Does jaws have the ability to watch a section of the screen for a particular change  and then report a message?

WindowEyes had a tool called hyper windows that could do this.

 

In the Time collection program here at work there are Icons that appear if the record has issues, i.e. that the record is incomplete or  times overlap.

If there are no problems this icon is not there. The icon is always in the same place on the screen.

I would like to be able to use the PC curser to move up and down the employee list and if there is a problem have jaws announce it without having to go and manually look at each and every record.

Do the Jaws frames have this capability?

 

Thanks for any assistance.

It probably got all messed up because you uninstalled the shared components, if you plan to use Jaws or another VFO product definitely say No when that question comes up.

If you have more than 1 version of Jaws installed, use 1 different than the 1 you want to uninstall.  i.e, If you want to uninstall Jaws 12, use any other version you hav to uninstall it.  If you only have the version installed that you want to remove, use Narrator or NVDA to uninstall it.

You should never uninstall an application while it is running.
If you have NVDA, run it while doing the Jaws uninstall.
Or, Narrator of course.

Re: Automatically open link in received email via Outlook 2016

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Hi Cristobal,

 

Sorry, somehow read "it's that often" as "it's not that often".

Anyhow, apart from what I suggested I am not aware of any other way to do this either manually or automatically.

if the "Accept" link is the only one that starts with an "a" then I still would venture that Insert+F7 followed by A and enter would be the fastest way.

I just tried it on the group emails which have a link for "Terms of Service" near the bottom and pressing Jaws Key+F7, typing T and pressing enter is literally hard to measure in time, I would say it takes maybe 1 or 1.5 seconds. If I say "Go" as I press enter to open the email and then say "Mississippi" or "one one thousand" to indicate a second then I press enter just barely after I'm done speaking.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

The big deal is that it’s a significant part of my business. I don’t’ recall mentioning that I don’t’ have to do it often.

I removed identifiable info from a sample email pasted below to demonstrate the layout I have to deal with.

The accept link I need to access is found on the second table. In this case, I removed the actual link so as not to go to the actual business portal it would take me to where I would be notified whether I was successful in accepting the assignment or not. It’ll just say accept link in regular text for this example.

On my computer, I have multiple desktops running. One desktop is just Outlook open to this account. When I get a notification of an incoming message, I’ll go to that desktop. Then do a control+tab to get into the message body, do a shift+t to get to the last table in the message (the one with the link in question) and arrow down to the accept link or use the U key to skip to it as it’s an unread link. I do sometimes arrow down to the row with the city/address info before clicking and this might be where sometimes it takes up that fraction of a second.

Again, this is if I’m sitting at the computer and haven’t stepped away for this or that reason. IN the middle of doing something where I can’t get out of that screen. On the phone or Jaws doesn’t do something buggy on me to where it interferes with me executing the steps outlined above to click accept on the proper link. These emails arrive throughout the day so while I do spend a lot of time at the PC, being glued to the machine all the time simply isn’t practical

Being able to automate this task would be a tremendous help. Thus my inquiry.

Not sure how much faster you can get to a link other than with one key combination, Insert+F7, and then typing a couple of letters as in “ac” for “Accept”, using Jaws find would really be the same, one key combination Insert+Control+F again followed by typing a couple of characters and pressing enter.

This isn’t going to work for me.

All those steps take longer than what I do now to access the accept link. I can get to it fast. It’s just that often, it’s just not fast enough.

The security issue isn’t that much of a concern for me. This would be for a specific incoming email account with specific words in the body/subject and accept link.

I’d in theory also just have a separate machine connected to the net with only this account open to receive incoming messages and since I use password generators for each individual account I have, and the links I’m interested in go to a specific company portal. That and I’m a MalwareBytes user anyway, that’s not an issue.

I even asked around on the VIPhone list on whether something similar could be accomplished with the Workflow automation app, but didn’t get a response.

I can’t help you with a macro or how you can do this automatically without being at the computer, but why not  use Jaws Key+F7 to bring up a list of links in the email and you can find “Accept” instantly by typing “a” or “acc” or it may even be the first link as the list is alphabetical.

Alternatively, use Jaws Find, Jaws Key+Control+F, type “accept” and press enter and it should land you right on the link.

Not sure if you can auto-activate links in an email, this might be considered very unsecure by Microsoft because of the potential of a virus.

Hello list,

So, part of My business in tales accepting freelance assignments via email with a corresponding accept/reject link. These assignments are time sensitive and they’re pretty much first come, first serve.

A good description of what I’m looking for is contained in this forum thread link. https://forums.slipstick.com/threads/94167-automatically-open-link-in-email-received/

I’d like to have an automated action where as an email comes in the accept link is activated without me having to navigate to the email, open it, scroll down to locate the link and then click.

I’m in general pretty fast at this, but I still lose time when having to do all the steps above. Especially trying to get to the proper link. That’s also if I’m not at my computer and haven’t stepped away for this or that reason or if Jaws decides to at that time act all weird on me.

These emails can come in for a lot of Southern California. I’ve already filtered out areas that I don’t wish to cover and only receive emails for the areas I know I can do or get covered.

The thread referenced above talks a lot about scripting and macros and while I’m a pretty competent PC user in general, scripting, coding and macros are areas where I simply have no knowledge of.

Can anyone help me out either by pointing me in the direction to some resources on where I can learn about this stuff to where it doesn’t’ seem like hieroglyphics or perhaps help me out with this particular task?

The link above talks abut Outlook 2007, but I’m using V2016. Also a Jaws 18 user. My default browser is Firefox.

Any help would be appreciated.

I can’t help you with a macro or how you can do this automatically without being at the computer, but why not  use Jaws Key+F7 to bring up a list of links in the email and you can find “Accept” instantly by typing “a” or “acc” or it may even be the first link as the list is alphabetical.

Alternatively, use Jaws Find, Jaws Key+Control+F, type “accept” and press enter and it should land you right on the link.

Not sure if you can auto-activate links in an email, this might be considered very unsecure by Microsoft because of the potential of a virus.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Subject: Automatically open link in received email via Outlook 2016

 

Hello list,

So, part of My business in tales accepting freelance assignments via email with a corresponding accept/reject link. These assignments are time sensitive and they’re pretty much first come, first serve.

A good description of what I’m looking for is contained in this forum thread link. https://forums.slipstick.com/threads/94167-automatically-open-link-in-email-received/

I’d like to have an automated action where as an email comes in the accept link is activated without me having to navigate to the email, open it, scroll down to locate the link and then click.

I’m in general pretty fast at this, but I still lose time when having to do all the steps above. Especially trying to get to the proper link. That’s also if I’m not at my computer and haven’t stepped away for this or that reason or if Jaws decides to at that time act all weird on me.

These emails can come in for a lot of Southern California. I’ve already filtered out areas that I don’t wish to cover and only receive emails for the areas I know I can do or get covered.

The thread referenced above talks a lot about scripting and macros and while I’m a pretty competent PC user in general, scripting, coding and macros are areas where I simply have no knowledge of.

Can anyone help me out either by pointing me in the direction to some resources on where I can learn about this stuff to where it doesn’t’ seem like hieroglyphics or perhaps help me out with this particular task?

The link above talks abut Outlook 2007, but I’m using V2016. Also a Jaws 18 user. My default browser is Firefox.

Any help would be appreciated.


Re: Installing Jaws on a Windows 10 mini PC.

 

Hi,
This will not affect this, as the Z8xxx is newer than Z2xxx for which Intel
said there won't be new drivers. If using tablets powered by Atom Z2xxx,
people will get updates until January 2023.
Cheers,
Joseph

Has anyone heard anything about how this will affect the ElBraille?
According to the specs the ELBraille is powered by an Intel(r) Atom(tm)
x5-Z8300 processor.

http://www.freedomscientific.com/Products/Blindness/ElBraille

Microsoft will be ending support for Windows 10 Anniversary Update in June
2018, and if you can't upgrade to Creator's Update you are stuck without
further security updates. That means if you purchased an ElBraille right now
(which you can't yet) you'll have less than 1 year before you can no longer
install updates, assuming the ElBraille's processor is one of the
discontinued Atom models.

Re: Does jaws have hyper windows?

Yes, I think setting a frame around the area you wish to monitor should do the trick. You can choose to have the area read when text changes, I think. It’s been a while since I’ve used frames, so can’t quite recall exactly how to do it, but the Jaws help should guide you.

Good luck.

In the Time collection program here at work there are Icons that appear if

If there are no problems this icon is not there. The icon is always in the

I would like to be able to use the PC curser to move up and down the

Do the Jaws frames have this capability?

Richard,
I loved those little things! They came in really handy for watching for
stuff to pop up on the screen.
I had many places where I used them. You type something here and this popped
up over there. It would just say what popped up in there or whatever
customer phrase you assigned to it.

I'm not sure Jaws has anything quite as robust as Window-Eyes' hyperactive
windows, but it must have it available through scripting as I know Jaws can
monitor certain things on the screen and speak them when they change.
I've not looked into it myself yet.
I certainly used a lot of hyperactive windows when customizing set files
back in the day.

Hey can you tell me more about Kodi?
I tried Kodi some time ago and it did not seem to work with Jaws!

Subject: Installing Jaws on a Windows 10 mini PC.

Hello everyone,

So a friend of mine and I were talking a little earlier this morning, about Kodi. And I told him that I use it primarily on my Windows 10 laptop, as their screen reader does not work on other platforms. He then told me, of a Mini PC that Windows makes, that you could hook up to your TV, and install Kodi on it. So I was wondering is there a possible way to be able to install Jaws on there as well? The Mini PC that I'm talking about, I guess would be similar to an Android set-top box, that you plug into your TV, and you can watch TV through Kodi or I guess any other app that it may offer.

Freedom Scientific told me, and she was just making an educated guess here, that she didn't think that it would be possible to install Jaws, so I'm not really sure. What do you guys say?

Thanks for any and all input, Shane.
