Group,



When typing a message in Outlook 2010, using JAWS 18, I have
an annoying occurrence. When I type a number using the
superscript letters following the number, JAWS reads it by
announcing superscript. For example, if I type 3rd, JAWS
does not read it as third. Hope that makes sense. I have
explored all kinds of settings but I can't seem to figure
out how to resolve this.



Thanks in advance,

Mark


Tutor Messages and JAWS

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I'm making this app that is designed with the Qt widgets and C++ Programming Language, and I'm wondering, how would I create what JAWS describes as a tutor message? Would that be the same as creating a QToolTip? A QLabel? A QWhatsThis? I'm asking this because I have somebody helping me on the Qt Forum via Chat, a guy by the username of SGaist, and he says he only has a virtual machine with Windows 10. Is it possible for me to have a link where I can direct him to a basic test version of JAWS that only requires a minimum amount of space, so he can test out the parameter that I want to create in my app? That is, the tutor message parameter?

try left mouse clicking on the screen.
have you pressed jaws 6 to find out if a script file and center has been created?
then you can load the center and look in the user settings for web html. somewhere in there is the option to have jaws speak all. then it will read the web pages as you go to them.

Are you using Braille input with grade 2 turned on?

When I type budget in grade 1 Braille or with a regular key board attached,
there is no problem. I am using the latest version of Jaws 18 on my
ElBraille and when I have grade 2 Braille on for input dg still is
pronounced degrees.

I have not tried Braille input with Jaws 2018 on my desk top computer, and I
am not upgrading to Jaws 2018 on my ElBraille until I know it won't cause

Hi Randy,

I just wanted to report to you that my Jaws 18 reads budget correctly.
I am using it now, while typing this message. There may be some dictionary

the 2018 upgrade. I have not yet installed my copy.

I purchased an ElBraille 14 about three months ago to use in place of
my Hims Braille Sense 32 cell notetaker.

First, my understanding was that you might be able to use the
ElBraille in place of a main computer has proven to be wrong. The
ElBraille has a tablet processor, which is not as fast and responsive
as my three year old desk top computer. It is similar in speed to my
Asus tablet I purchased around three years ago. Although, I do not
use the Asus tablet enough to have a good comparison, and my ElBraille
14 may be faster, it is not as fast and responsive as my desk top
computer.

I do not use OpenBook or OCR on the Elbraile. I believe you will need
Jaws 18. You will want to buy a USB hub to give you more than one USB
port, and I also bought an HDMI adapter with a regular monitor port
for my wife to be able to give me some feedback.

Running a computer just using the Focus 14 key board has been a
learning curve. I did cheat for a while and connected a regular key
board.

The Braille translation table in Jaws does have a problem, it
recognizes dg as the degrees symbol in words. For example, budget is
pronounced bu-degrees-et. I am not sure if Jaws 2018 has an updated
translation that has corrected this. This is a Braille translation
problem, not an ElBraille problem. Also, I have not heard yet if I
can update my ElBraille to run Jaws 2018, which I am running on the rest
of my computers.

There are times that I wish it was a little snappier running Outlook,
Word, and Excel, but it isn't too bad. I had been using the ElNotes
program to take notes, until I just decided today to use Wordpad instead.

The makers of the ElBraille like Fire Fox, and I do not use it. I had
started using Google Chrome, but there was problems typing into edit
fields with the Braille key board when using Chrome, which I am not
sure if this is an ElBraille problem or Jaws, but I suspect it is a
Jaws problem. VFO recommended I use Internet Explorer and Ron Miller
help me get Internet Explorer to be my default browser.

Keep in mind that this is not a VFO product, and VFO did not have a
dedicated support person for the ElBraille when I last called tech
support.
Ron Miller from VFO did take the time to talk with me when I was
having some initial challenges with ElBraille. I have found it easier
and quicker to send questions direct to the Elita Group who made the
ElBraille, and they do respond fairly quickly.

I hope this helps, and let me know if you have any further questions.
I still believe the best notetaker in the future will be a full
featured windows computer or tablet, which is why I am willing to go
through the challenge of using the ElBraille.

Re: 2018 with a 250 G hardrive?

 

There is definitely something wrong, you can install Windowsssss and Office on a system wwwwith a 60 Gb SSD and still have probably 40 Gb or more free space. If you have a 250 Gb hard drive and there is nothing much other than Windows and maybe Office there you should have at least 200 Gb or more free space.
You said the computer was given to you, maybe it has an old Windows installation on it although they only take maybe 3 or 4 Gb, I'd do a disk cleanup and see what shows up and also make sure you check how much is in the recycle bin.
Lastly, make sure the drive is not partitioned, maybe the C drive with the Windows installation is just a 60 or 80 Gb partition and you have another partition with the majority of the drive space in it.

Rick,

Using Firefox, it is clearly possible to get to the download link after selecting a book.  Note that the book download link is above the submit button rather than after it.

However, when you follow that download link you get to the “check out” page where it clearly states:

 

You must be logged in to checkout.

 

You have to sign up as a patron in order to download anything.

The How to become a patron file makes that pretty clear.

 

I hope that helps,

Richard

Subject: Using JAWS to Download a Book from a Particular Web Site

 

Dear Listers:

 

Are any of you familiar with Audio Book Ministries, also known as Tape Ministries for the Blind?  They have an online accessible library from which their books can be downloaded, but doing it using JAWS is very hard.  Their address is:

 

http://www.audiobookministries.org

 

Right now the employee they have who is knowledgeable about screen readers and about JAWS is on medical leave and they don’t know when he will be back again.  So if any of you are familiar with this particular web site and maybe, by chance, might have downloaded a book from it, would you please be so kind as to access it and figure out how it can be done using JAWS?  You don’t have to sign in to do this—at least not for the help I am asking for.  Just go to the web page and find the “Online Library Access,” link and hit the Enter key.  Then if you just find any book, try to figure out how to get to the page where the book can be downloaded.  When you get to the page that has the book description, you’ll see there is no direct link to download the book.  There is a “downloads,” link but it will not take you to the “download,” page for the book you wish to download.  Instead, it takes you to the page where there are various things that can be downloaded, such as the AudioBook Ministries tax summary and various other things not at all related to the book you wish to download.  When you find a book, just tell me how to use JAWS to get to the book’s download page.

 

Thanks for any help you can give.

Re: Outlook crashes on Windows 7 PC when starting to type an address

I’m the one who posted about this problem yesterday, and it is continuing.

 

I’m not sure if it’s a Jaws issue or a Microsoft issue, but it is very disruptive to say the least.

 

I’d appreciate any suggested fixes if anyone has them.

Subject: Outlook crashes on Windows 7 PC when starting to type an address

 

Hi,

 

Somebody posted earlier about this. I was away for a couple of weeks and was just using my Windows 10 laptop, but when I was at work today where I still run Windows 7 along with Office 2016 via Office 365 subscription and Jaws 2018 the same thing is now happening as well.

If I start a new message and start typing a few letters so the auto complete should come up Outlook crashes.

I really hate Microsoft for screwing up Office all the time lately, Excel still crashes as well as soon as I type the equals sign to start a formula and FS or Microsoft barely fixes something when an Office update comes out and it’s messed up all over again.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Dear Richard:

 

Using Internet Explorer, I sign in with My Account.  Then I search for the book.  When results pop up I go to its page.  Then I find right above the Submit button there are a whole bunch of combo boxes such as All Series, All Authors, ALL IDs, etc.  I have tried just what you suggested by just arrowing up above the Submit button, but it is not working.  Someone asked me what browser I was using, saying that with Firefox it can be done.  I am not using Firefox, though.  I am using Internet Explorer.

Dear Richard:

 

I am a patron.  I am signed in when I try to download it.  I am not using Firefox, though.  I am using Internet Explorer.

Rick already posted this question and there were at least three replies.

I found the download link just fine using Jaws and Firefox.

The issue is you cannot download the book unless you are sign up as a Patron.

the web say it is a lending library and you have to fill out a application and you order the book and they send it to you and when you read the book you send it book that’s how I understand it but I can be wrong

I can’t figure it out at all! Obviously, the site is inaccessible.
