I did send a report about this problem to FS VFO Group on Monday.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions how I might fix this scanning problem?

Hi Carolyn,

To try and summarize what Leasey can all do would be a
difficult task because it has so many features and
functions. Below is a link to the Leasey Central website,
here you can read all about it, you can even read the
documentation which is very well written and listen to an
audio demo.
Pricing is also available and Hartgen Consulting from
England who has developed the Leasey scripts also offers a
payment plan.

Leasey has a lot of good features, I probably only use 10%
of what it offers, but for me what I use is worth it.

You can try Leasey, it is fully functional but I think there
is a limit of how many times you can use it where I think a
restart of your computer counts and it speaks a message
every so often that you are using it in demo mode. It will,
however, give you a very good idea of its capabilities.

I would recommend Leasey Advanced and not the Leasey total
package which has a lot of self-voicing stuff and really is
for total computer beginners who use a very limited set of
applications.

Re: Questions on Kodi 17.4.

Shane clark
 

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to update those who are in this thread regarding my latest Kodi venture. Unfortunately from where I sit, nothing has changed. Today, I uninstalled version 16.1, then installed 17.4. I booted it up, and navigated it with the arrow keys, and everything seemed like it was okay as far as Kodi running on my laptop. I then called the Microsoft disability desk, and they help me with the installation of the screen reader, which I already had on my computer. But what they did was, they updated it for me to 1.07. And as soon as the tone began to play, I heard the screen reader say window, then Kodi crashed. We launched it again, with the same thing happening every other time we did it, Kodi still crashed.

I think Tim, said that on his end of things, once he updated the screen reader to 1.07, and installed 17.4, all was golden. And by the way, we did also check the check box that said allow unknown sources, as well as updated my Windows 10 to the latest version which is the creator version I believe, still with no luck. So at this point, I am completely out of Things to try.

For those that are still running 16, what add-ons are you using to find that you still get the most functionality out of? Or arevyou using a particular build that is still catering to 16. It is my concern, and I may have expressed this before, but the Developers of Cody, May be developing all add-ons and builds towards 17, and if this doesn't get resolved, we as blind people are going to be left behind. I've already written into the Kodi Forum, but have really gotten no response other than from a few people to say well you should stick with 16 if it works for you. So if anyone has any other suggestions as what to try with 17.4, Feel free to chime in.

Shane.

It certainly does.  If you are running 16.1 update the reader plug-in

running 16.1.  I don't remember where to do that but you need version 1.07

at least.  Then just install kodi 17.04.  It works.  The first thing you

should do after you have it running is enable unknown sources.  The reason

people can't get the 17.04 to work is only because they don't update the

kodi reader.

Hello everyone,

 

Would anyone happen to possibly know, if Kodi 17.4 is accessible with

Windows 10 and the screen reader that comes with Kodi? I know it's

accessible with Windows 10, but when I try to install 17.3 and use it with

the Kodi screen reader, every time the screen reader begin speaking, Kodi

crashed. So I was just wondering if anybody may have already installed the

latest version of Kodi, and tried it out?

reading bullets

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

I'm reading a web page (using Google Chrome for a browser, if that matters), and the page makes extensive use of bullet
points. As I arrow down, JAWS starts every line with "bullet" or, even more annoying, "hollow round bullet". Is there
some way to make JAWS quit reading the bullets?

I tried turning off reading graphics, but that has no effect. These are not graphics. They are actual characters. Next,
I went into the Dictionary Manager and tried to create an entry for the bullet character with a replacement word set to
a space, but that also had no effect.

Any other ideas? If I have to hear "bullet" and "hollow round bullet" for every line of this web page, I'll have to be
admitted to a psych ward. LOL.

ALT plus R, followed by R tells Firefox to remember the password.

ALT plus N followed by N says: No, don't remember the password.

JAWS doesn't report correctly that you need the single keystroke after the ALT combinations. But when I went into the dialog boxes, I saw that, unless the single letters are used after the ALT combinations, the dialog is still open and waiting to be activated. This is why it keeps coming up repeatedly. Firefox doesn't think the dialog box has been answered unless the ALT combinations are used followed by either the single letter R for Remember, or N for No are used.

Great as it doesn't work well with win 10 creator.  At least on my computer if I close Edge it puts me in some kind of unknown state where you can't get to the desktop nor restart Win 10 forcing a hard reboot of Win 10 which I dislike doing.
