Hi Christi,

 

I've just answered the same question for another person on the list with a link to a full guide.

 

Additionally, if you want to find out more about the ribbon, a good starting point might be the link below. It goes to an explanation of the ribbon as used in File Explorer on Windows 8, but I think the navigation is the same, or at least similar, for Word 2016.

Thanks,

Does anyone know if there are any good tutorials available for using JAWS 18 and Word 2016?  I am a medical transcriptionist and just recently upgraded to these two programs.  I am finding it very difficult to navigate the ribbon menus in Word 2016.

 

Thanks for any help you can give.

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

Yes, it is supposed to work with Jaws 2018 Convenient OCR.
It says that both in the 2018 what's new I think as well as the email advertising the sale.

The Email I received offering the Pearl for $295 was for all Jaws 2018 and 2018 fusion customers and said the pearl would work with Jaws 2018. I see it that FS has incorporated part of Open Book into Jaws 2018 and Open Book is on its way out. Of course Open Book hasn't been updated for years.

Hi Alton,

 

Not a recommendation in that I haven't read it myself, but Cathy Anne Murtha, who trades as the Access Technology Institute, does Office manuals aimed at screen reader users and I've heard good feedback about them in general.

 

There is one on Word 2016 with JAWS. I don’t know which version of JAWS is used, but the link below leads to a table of contents which details the functionality covered.

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!

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.

Openbook can save images in TIFF format, so I guess you could scan with

Openbook will just read them directly.

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

From my experience, the Pearl camera only works with Openbook. It cannot be
used with other scanning applications. If anyone knows different, let me
know.

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.
