Outlook 2016 sometimes “forgets” the Ctrl-y “goto folder” command. I have to use the Alt-q Edit field and literally spell it out for the suddenly dim-witted program.
Does this happen to anyone else?

Thanks.

Yes, the Pearl camera works with JAWS 2018. I ordered one yesterday. I received an email and I also had a JAWS notice. That is why it is on sale for $295.00 right now. I tried to enter the code but it didn't work so I called VFO and ordered it. Hopefully, it will come soon.

Re: Pearl camera

Dave...
 

Don and all,

Using JAWS 2018 latest build, I just gave my Pearl camera a trial run. Quite
impressive, and yes it may signal the end of any future Openbook support.
That is somewhat unfortunate, as Openbook has a very rich set of features in
settings and configurations. I'll keep my Openbook 8 and 9 copies for as
long as they run on Windows.

However that aside, OCR using the Pearl camera or a connected flatbed does
offer a very convenient way to scan physical document on demand without
needing Openbook.

Also note that it is now possible to recognize many document types right
from the file listing in Windows Explorer, which to me, is a much more
significant improvement in the Convenient OCR application.

But again, I don't see anywhere that the Pearl camera can be used with other
mainstream applications as an input device. Therein lies my continuing
criticism.

Re: Pearl camera

Don,

Yes, I see that now. However, more to my point, is that the Pearl camera
still cannot be used with other scanning applications, as in the case of
Epson or other flatbed scanner hardware. That's where the real value of the
Pearl camera would shine. VFO seems to want to keep that piece of hardware
proprietary to their own software -- kind of an Apple paradigm.

Re: Maintenance agreement

Mario
 

I would give VFO/FS a ring and ask them to be sure.

with an SMA, you are basically prepaying to be allowed to upgrade for
free when the upgrade becomes available. for example, you start with
version 2018 and when 2019 comes out, you can upgrade as opposed to
having to pay a bit more to upgrade to version 2019.

normally, you simply go to the Jaws download page and download the latest version and install it.
You might check with your vendor.

Subject: Microsoft Word 2016 Tutorial

 

Good morning,

Can anyone recommend a really good, comprehensive tutorial for using Microsoft Word 2016 with JAWS 18?

Something that deals with beginner and advanced functionality, and everything in between, as well as keyboard shortcuts?

Thanks for any feedback you can provide.

 

AC

ALT Text length and JAWS pre-sets

Brunella Chiarugi
 

Hej!

I have a quick survey here.

I know that JAWS has a pre-set limit of 125 characters for ALT Texts, but I wonder:
– How many of you actually know that the settings can be adjusted?
– Also, how many users change the settings? In other words, is it common for JAWS users to change the settings?

Thanks in advance!

Isn't the Pearl camera supposed to work with the latest JAWS OCR?

Anyone got any experience with using the Pearl Camera versus a flat bed
scanner for use with Jaws 2018?  Just got the notice that the Pearl
camera is on sale for users of Jaws 2018.  Is the Pearl easier to use?
Does it produce better scanning results over a flat bed scanner?
Thanks

Hi,
I have used the Pearl camera from the time it came out for purchase. It was
half the price as an introductory offer. The camera works real great and I
had no complaints except for its fragility. It is great for its portability,
picture rendering abilities and it does function as advertised. I guess it
is all that and a bag of chips. Now the cons, in the past before this sale,
I suggested to my consumers not to acquire one due to the cost at over
1200bucks. For my consumers, it was a whole lot cheaper to go on EBay and
purchase a portable flatbed scanner for under 100bucks and get the same
functionality at an extremely lower cost. The camera is just what it is,
portable camera. The portable scanner was just as practical and thin enough
to fit in a laptop bag and consume about the same amount of space on your
desk as an opened Pearl camera scanning a sheet of paper. I've personally
haven't seen the new price; but the purchasing of the Pearl camera is a
choice of preference in my opinion. Let's face it the purchasing of adaptive
technologies is economics first followed by functionality coupled with
practicability; Also, some portable flatbed scanners has more features than
just scanning that can be helpful in other areas as far as independent
computing. Bottom line get as much bang for your bucks.

The Pearl is portable and is much more suitable for books.
