Hi there! I have attempted this using multiple versions of JAWS, and have had little success.

I am trying to edit documents already in PDF format and I am using Acrobat Pro CD, which is a PDF editing software from Adobe. It is fully paid and allows sighted people to make edits but not me using JAWS V16.

Thanks

Dear all,

Has anyone edited PDFs using Jaws?

I am trying to edit PDFs with Acrobat Pro DC using Jaws 16 and it does
not work. Acrobat Pro DC has functionality to edit PDFs.

Please let me know if anyone has had better luck doing so. Even
better, if they tell me how to do it or point to some useful resources.

Richard Turner
 

Have you called Freedom Scientific yet?

I have no experience with that software, but it could be that a newer version of Jaws could do it, but only FS knows.

Will do!  I’m hoping I can find a solution to this.  Creating an form in Word is fine, but none of the fields transfer over when I save it to a PDF file.

Hi,

You can save as .PDF.

Please let me know if anyone has had better luck doing so. Even better, if they tell me how to do it or point to some useful resources.

Dear all,

Has anyone edited PDFs using Jaws?

I am trying to edit PDFs with Acrobat Pro DC using Jaws 16 and it does not work. Acrobat Pro DC has functionality to edit PDFs.

Please let me know if anyone has had better luck doing so. Even better, if they tell me how to do it or point to some useful resources.

Thanks

Shiv

I don’t think John Martin’s scripts are even available any more, all of his projects have all been adandoned.

Leasey does contain scripts for iTunes which do help with a few things, you can go to Leasey Central to read about these scripts, they are very comprehensive scripts with a ton of features, also not cheap, but the price has come down and I believe he may offer a payment plan.

Re: Braille Displays and Multiple Languages/Character Sets

Gudrun Brunot
 

Hi Bill: In most cases, a Perkins style approach is the norm, but in situations where the character must be entered with an ASCII string, you do need to use the ASCII value to get the correct character. Even though I have a Focus Blue 80-cell display with braille input capability, I find it much faster to either switch my desktop keyboard layout or go into the ASCII entry mode by using the numlock on/off switch and entering the 4-digit value for the character, e.g. alt-0233 for E with acute accent. Hunting around for the same character within the Braillenote settings is more cumbersome.

Best wishes,



Gudrun

Hi Brian, I have limited refreshable braille display experience, but unless such a device has a Quirty style keyboard, then your question is asked amiss. With refreshable braille devices what you’re asking about would be determined by the “braille language” chosen from within the device’s braille settings menu. And that because most such devices use a Perkins style keyboard, which emulates the Perkins manual brailler. This, coupled with the user’s familiarity of that braille language’s rules of use determine how text is entered, formatted, and read. I hope this makes sense and is helpful.

Thus, choosing a braille display is independent of which languages are to be used.



Assuming that the user in question plans to use JAWS (and you’re asking on a JAWS list, after all), then the next question is whether JAWS offers translation tables for the desired languages. To find out, look in the translation table settings.



If different character sets are to be used, it may be necessary to switch between two different translation tables. JAWS appears to support this; on the Focus 40 Blue display that I’m using here, it’s assigned to dots 2-3-4-5-7 chord. I haven’t experimented with the feature, however.



As to keyboard layout, you can configure this in the operating system, so you shouldn’t need to obtain a new or different physical keyboard, unless there’s a specific reason for preferring a physical keyboard that has slightly different keys on it (for a different language/country).

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.

Re: scanning with pearl camera

Hi,

 

Insert+Space, then O, then A, you can select your scanner source.  Thentab over to Advanced if you want more settings.

 

All the best

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.

No, you mean Insert+Space bar, then O, then A.

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.
