Hello All,

 

I need someone who can help me do some configuration to FB for me.  I signed up only due to a special project that included use of Facebook, and I need someone who can turn off and get rid of all the friends of friends of friends that have now over-whelmed my ability to delete.  I would gladly pay for that person’s time.  Any interested persons please contact me directly at my personal email address, ttford@....

Try Talking Typing Teacher from MarvelSoft. Designed for elementary through high school students though. Assumes the student can spell to some extent. But at least the student could learn the letters perhaps.

Hi JFW experts,

Please, need information regarding Typing Programs for younger students.  I have used “Talking Typer”, “Type Abilities”, with my middle and high school students.  I am working with a very young preschooler.  The student is learning with a small computer and JAWS 18.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Re: Outlook 2016 Address Field Issue

Two suggestions come to mind.

  1. Try a reboot. Hopefully that will fix the issue
  2. If the reboot doesn’t work, you can try repairing outlook through the “Programs and Features” applet of the Control Panel

Subject: Outlook 2016 Address Field Issue

 

Hello, everyone.

 

This morning, I just discovered a major problem with Outlook 2016 when originating an e-mail.

 

When I start a new e-mail with control N, I can no longer type a contact address into the “to” field.  When I do this, I get kicked out of my new e-mail, and get placed back into my inbox.

 

Interestingly, I can go to my contacts list, and copy and paste the e-mail address into the to field with no problem.  I can also reply to e-mails with no problem.

 

Once again, the issue occurs when originating an e-mail and trying to access someone in my contacts list.

 

I am using Jaws 18, Outlook 2016 with Office 365, and Windows 7 here.

 

Has anyone recently experienced this issue, and if so, have you found a fix?

 

I am eligible to upgrade to Jaws 2018, and will do so when I get the chance.

 

However, in the meantime, I’d like to be able to quickly originate e-mails in the usual way if at all possible.

 

Dr.  Tom Behler from Michigan

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.

Speaking line indentation in Jaws

Tony Malykh
 

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to make Jaws speak the indent of current line? It's
very important in some languages, like Python to keep all the lines
indented correctly.

One way I was told is to change scheme by pressing Insert+Alt+s and
then select one of the indent schemes. But this doesn't work for me,
nothing happens when I select indent scheme. I tried it in Visual
Studio and notepad. I'm using Jaws 18 and the latest Windows 10. Is
there any additional configuration needed to make indent scheme
working?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you
Tony


Re: j2018 won't focus in Chrome

Tony Malykh
 

I experience a similar problem with Chrome and j18 occasionally, maybe
a couple of times a day. But in my case restarting chrome solves the
issue. Unfortunately I don't know how to fix it. If you have any
chrome add-ons installed I would try uninstalling them to see if that
helps.

Re: question

Hi David,
 
If you have an icon on your desk top for the program you want to have run maximized,  try the following:
1. Highlight the icon and press, alt + enter, for the properties.
2. Tab to, Run, and there should be a combo box with the following options Normal Window, Minimized, & Maximized.
3. Arrow down to, Maximized, and then tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, tab to, Okay, press the enter / spacebar to save your changes & close.

If you don't have the Icon  on the desk top then do the following:
 
1. Go to, programs, in the start menu or the proper Programs Files folder on the route of the C drive, find the program folder & open it.
2. Highlight the executable for the program, press your applications key, arrow up to, properties and press enter
3. Arrow down to, Send To, & press enter. 
4. Arrow to, Desktop Create Shortcut, & press enter.
5. Now you can follow the first 3 steps from the top of this message.
 
Note: The icon that you created on your desktop from the program executable might be named something like, Program Name - shortcut.  To change the name:
1. Highlight the icon & press your, F2, key.
2. You are now in an edit field so, change the name to what you want to name it & press enter to save the change & close.
 
Take care.  Mike.  Dodgers, try again next year!

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.

When typing a message in Outlook 2010, using JAWS 18, I have an annoying

tried using another screen reader like NVDA or Narrator? if you can save
the document as usual, consider performing a repair on JAWS. maybe some
part of JAWS went awry and needs to be fixed. then try again with JAWS
loaded.

Subject: Word 2010 Save Document Keystroke Not Working

Hi All,

Running Windows 7, Office 2010 Home & Student, & Jaws 16. When I create a
word .docx, & press either, Control + S, Alt + F, then A, or F12 to save the
document I do not get a save dialogue to name the file as whatever I want to
name it. The document just flat out disappears, & I can't find it anywhere!
I know where it's suppose to save to if it gets closed without being saved,
but like I said, I can't find where it's supposed to go or anywhere else!
I'm all out of ideas, would y'all please come to my rescue, & tell me what
the hell is happening?! LOL All help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
much.
w
Take care. Mike. Dodgers, try again next year!

well, he could install the last non tandum build of JAWS, and if the VM
environment doesn't have Internet access, he won't be getting the OCR
functionality. I think this is the way to go unless someone else knows
of an "at least" installation of JAWS; this means no Tandum and no OCR.

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?

And it comes out suprascript? As slightly lower?

You type it as in 3rd for third or 5th for fifth.

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
