win10 settings screen with jaws cursor

Juan Hernandez
 

Hi All,

 

I have realized lately that I can no longer read the settings screens in windows 10 with the jaws cursor.  I have to use the touch cursor.  Do you guys see this as well?

 

Thanks.

Braille Displays and Multiple Languages/Character Sets

 

This message may be considered off-topic, but there is really nowhere in particular where I can try to engage those who’ve “been there, done that” (or may be there doing that) with this topic.  If the moderator believes this should not be further discussed on the group, then please post with that request.  I am happy to receive input either on the group or via private message or e-mail.

I may soon be taking on some contract work where one of the questions is what braille display would be best suited for use with foreign (non-English) characters both from an input and output perspective.  Since I am sighted and monolingual this particular need is something that’s entirely in the abstract for me.   This is definitely a time where input from those who have already encountered this need and tried things out would be invaluable.

I would also be curious as to whether those who are dealing with multiple languages where non-English-language character sets are being used have found it useful to use a language-specific keyboard.  It certainly makes text entry easier but only if you are able to familiarize yourself with the layout on said keyboard and get as comfortable with it as the keyboard you typically use.  I know that these are available as replacements on laptops so I’d have to presume that the external USB keyboard equivalent is available as well.

Also, if you as a multi-language computer user are willing to be a part of an “e-mail circle” about this please let me know.   This is a time where more input, and possibly conflicting input, is a very good thing provided you can describe how you’ve arrived at your conclusions.  It would be great to be the proverbial "fly on the wall" while those with long experience with this need discuss their experiences with each other.   This may or may not happen, but I thought I'd ask.

Hi -

I created a new folder to organize messages for a ski trip
to Vail. I verified that the folder was in place, then went
to my in-box to find and move relevant messages. I opened a
message regarding travel, clicked to move it to the new
folder. The message appeared to close and move. I went to
the new folder and Jaws told me that the folder contains 0
items. Where did my message go? Is it actually in the
folder, but Jaws is not reading the folder contents? How
might I get access to the message back?



I created another folder for a different subject and I can
read the contents of the other newly created folder
containing moved messages.

Many thanks for any help.

Hello all,

I am looking for an email list with some characteristics that are not very common. However I would like to know if you guys know a page with a large list of blind email list. You know, some times there are email list with a very specific and limited topic like jaws, or iPhone, or NVDA, but sometimes are email list with topics a little bit more  eccentric. Any help will be tremendously appreciated

Thanks in advance,

 


Re: How can I get to a message balloon that popped up?

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi Bill and Others!

 

I am on Windows 7.  Thus, this is properly called a "notification balloon."  So, it would seem that the only way to get at them is to use the virtual cursor with a numpad left-click.  And, to that end, increasing the notification balloon's appearance duration via Bill's suggestion below makes doing this a bit easier.  Am I correct here?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hi again, Richard. One thing you can do either in Windows 7 or Windows 10 is to go into the Ease of Access Center, and change how long a balloon remains on the screen. I have mine set to 20 seconds. Then it is easier to click on the balloon either with the Left Mouse Click on the Number Pad with Windows 7, or WINDOWS key plus A for Windows 10.

Hi!

 

Sometimes, a message balloon pops up advising me of something, such as an update for Java being ready to install.  Typically, I ignore these because I just cannot get to it to “click” on it.  How can I get to these message balloons?

 

Thanks,

Richard

scanning with pearl camera

I have a pearl camera and was trying the convenient ocr feature.  The scan seems to take forever.  I also read where you can change settings for the camera but can’t seem to find where to make the changes in jfw.

HI,

Thanks so much!

Works perfectly.

Next question, how do I permenaently dismiss reminders in outlook

2016?

Also, How do I get jaws to not say every single key I press?

For example, when I go to my desktop, it says, “windows D, desktop, recycle bin,  1 of 58.”

 

Thanks,

Jessica

Hi,

I’m using Jaws 2018 on my mac via bootcamp, with the latest version of Windows 10.

Until recently, if I pressed “capslock” it acted as an insert key.

Now, I’m using a matias wireless keyboard, with my mac.

Neither the capslock key on my Bluetooth keyboard, nor the capslock key on my mac keyboard will work for this purpose.

What can I do?

 

Thanks,

Re: OCR

Dave...
 


Mark,
 
Yes it can. JAWS 2018 convenient OCR will work with other scanners than just the Pearl Camera, so it does work with hardware. Spacebar+JAWS, then O for OCR, then A. You have a dialog that will allow you to select from any connected scanners or cameras, and to scan a physical document and recognize. Not as full-featured as Openbook, but very handy.
 
It does require the latest JAWS 2018 build, released last month.

I think some clarification is needed here. Jaws 2018 can perform OCR on a paper document from either a PURL camera or a flatbed scanner (I have & use both).  The Insert+space bar+a will bring up the selection list to select the device to obtain the document from and will then OCR the resulting  document.  This works quite well and is very handy.

You can purchase the Purl camera for $295.00 and then you can do what you want. I don't think a flat bed scanner would work but it might be possible.

Jaws Up And Running On My Mac But Need Some Help

Owais Patel <owaisipatel@...>
 

Hello everyone. Yesterday I installed Jaws for Windows on my MacBook. Everything was great except the fact that as expected my Jaws Key CapsLock is not working the way its suppose to. I downloaded SharpKeys and and clicked the button agree and selected key I wish to remap. However from here I'm not sure on what to do. Any help will be appreciated. Please explain the way to remap the Key what do I do in the place where Jaws says to type the key? Would I type the key as in C A P S Like O C K with another key or do I type the keys together? Thanks.
Sincerely,
Owais


Re: OCR

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, Mark. Once you use your scanner to scan the paper document, you may be able to use the resulting picture file through the “Recognize with JAWS” feature to scan that picture.

Re: OCR

Hi, Jonas. The reason Mark is confused about the scanning of paper documents is that JAWS will now scan and read pdf files and some picture files. This led him to believe that there is a way to have JAWS read paper documents. As I wrote to him, this requires hardware such as a scanner or all-in-one printer to accomplish.

Jaws is a screen reder it is not a scanning program!

It will not take a printed paper and scan it to an digital electronic document.

“link to read them?”
