If you set up Dropbox or OneDrive simply pressing the Printscreen button will take the screenshot and save it as a PNG file into the Screenshots folder in Dropbox or OneDrive.
I just tested this also and right clicking on any of these PNG files and selecting Recognize with Jaws worked just fine, as far as I know Jaws 2018 can do OCR on most image files, they don’t have to be PDF or JPeg.

Al,
I just tested this for you. I took a screenshot and saved it as a.JPEg and saved it on my desktop.
I then located it and hit the application key then activated recognize with JAWS. Then it brought up a window with the OCR results. Not sure why it is not working for you as I had no problems. I suggest you do a jaws repair.

Hello,
Just tried the new feature where jaws is supposed to read jpg files? I used to do this with open book but just tried with latest version of JAWS 2018 to no avail. Here is what I did.
Went to a jpg file (picture of a receipt) and when cursor had focus on the file I hit application key and selected “recognize with jaws.  It doesn’t seem to do anything. Is there something else I need to do? I remember in the beta testing with first version I could not get this to work and reported it to VFO. Have not tried since but still does not work. Am I needing to do another step? Are others able to complete this ok

Once you hit the print screen, it's copied to the clipboard. So, it has to be pasted into something.

Do you know the keystrokes shortcuts for chrome? the keystrok for

When I activate the bookmark button, I have to scroll up to impor from

Re: Unending problems with firefox

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

For those who think they installed the ESR version but still cannot use Firefox, make sure when you run the install file, you get "Update" as an option. Double check the Help, About after installation to be sure you have 52.5 ESR 32 bit. At least, some on this list, have said run the 32 bit version even if you have a 64 bit machine as it works better with Jaws, apparently.
Here is the 32 bit link for US English:
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-esr-latest-ssl&os=win&lang=en-US

For all other languages and versions of the ESR, go to:

Hi Ibrahim.
I'm not too good with shortcuts in Chrome, but I get to bookmarks by opening chrome, then hitting the alt key and the the letter B. That puts me into bookmarks. I'm sure somebody on the list can give information on other shortcut keys.

Hello again:
Firefox, is still not working with JAWS, even with the extended
support release. I downloaded and installed the ESR52.5 program, and
it is running.
But when I open firefox, I get this message:
"Display of tab content is disabled due to incompatibility with your
screen reader. Please update your screenreader, or switch to firefox
extended support release".
Does anyone have this problem even after installing ESR, how did you
get around it.
Or is there is fix for this new probllem created by firefox.
I did refresh firefox as suggested in the firefox help, but nothing
changed. In fact, I've now lost all my bookmarks.
Any help?

Re: need recommendation for new PC

Hi Sieghard,

I have one last question about the SSD. If I start getting lots of files on the SSD, will it slow down in performance? If this is the case, shouldn't I get a smaller SSD and only keep those files that must reside there and place everthing else on a secondary or external drive? Thank you for your help.

With email you typically don't have a choice or at least it's much more difficult to store your Outlook.pst file (if Outlook is what you use) on a different drive than the default used by Outlook.
Other stuff like documents and especially music files and pictures and videos you should have on a different drive. It really depends on how much data you have and how large of an SSD you buy, if you have a 480 Gb or 512 Gb SSD and you only have 100 or 200 Gb of stuff then you might as well have it on the SSD.

Hi Sieghard,

I think I have received more information today on this subject than I have ever received, grin. I have a lot to think about. One question, is it best to install all programs to the SSD and store their results on a different drive, i.e. load Goldwave from drive c and write results to drive d, or should I write results to drive c also and then move the files to drive d? Should my documents and email , etc be stored on drive c?

Hi Carol,

Just take a look at what is out there at a good deal. As others have pointed out, 8 Gb of RAM is pretty good, I don't subscribe to Kelly's believe that you need the latest i7 processor, most of my PC's at my store have I5 processors and they do just fine, but if the price difference is not too big then there is no reason to go with an I7.
I think if I had a choice between an I7 PC with a regular hard drive and an I5 option with an SSD for a similar price then I'd choose the I5 with SSD because you do get much better performance from an SSD. Of course if you have tons of data you might want a regular hard drive or you can go with a smaller SSD just for the OS and your applications and use a USB 3 external hard drive for your data.
SSD's are not bad now even the ones around 480 to 512 Gb, but the 240 Gb ones are still cheaper and if you are not worried about lots of data then a smaller SSD will be just fine, even a 120 Gb is 3 times what you need to run just Windows and Office and a few other things.
Earlier this year I purchased a couple of HP Elite Mini PC's, these are not laptops, but just very small PC's. I really like them.

Sieghard

You dont need a super expensive system. You do need the fastest I5 processor you can afford and 8GB of ram. Everything else is optional.
the onboard sound, video and network is fine.
A good SSD is very nice to have. I like Samsung myself.
256GB is fine for your OS and programs. A seperate multi TB HDD is good for music and other things like One drive and dropbox On 11/24/2017 6:00 AM, Carol Smith via Groups.Io wrote:
Hi,

I must get a new PC. I am looking for suggestions for one that will

large should it be? Generally, which would be the best brand? I know
this is a personal choice. I have had Dells for the last two
computers and am wondering if something else would be better. I have
Office 2007. Can I use 2007 on a win10 system or Should I get 2016?
My current PC is almost 8 years old and is beginning to do some wierd

this one gives up.

Finally, does anyone use a hybred and what do they think of it. I
know I do not want a notebook, so it must be either a hybred, a decent
laptop or another desktop. Thanks for any suggestions. Oh yes, I
would like to get one on sale today, grin.

Sieghard,

 

Thought I had this setup in drop box as I have a folder for screen shots. However, when I push the print screen button nothing happens and no file is put in that folder. Is there another key that needs to be pressed with the print screen button?

 

Best,

Most of use use Dropbox or OneDrive so why monkey around with taking a screenshot, pasting it into Paint and then saving it.

If you set up Dropbox or OneDrive simply pressing the Printscreen button will take the screenshot and save it as a PNG file into the Screenshots folder in Dropbox or OneDrive.

I just tested this also and right clicking on any of these PNG files and selecting Recognize with Jaws worked just fine, as far as I know Jaws 2018 can do OCR on most image files, they don’t have to be PDF or JPeg.

I just tested this for you. I took a screenshot and saved it as a.JPEg and saved it on my desktop.

I then located it and hit the application key then activated recognize with JAWS. Then it brought up a window with the OCR results. Not sure why it is not working for you as I had no problems. I suggest you do a jaws repair.
