Re: Pdf fill opinions for editing PDF's?

Michael Mote
 

Hi there!  So just to clarify, you can create edit fields, and other form fields such as checkboxes, dropdowns, radio checkboxes etc?  I’m asking to make sure, before I drop the fundage on it.  Is this functionality available in a trial version so I can test first?

Yes it’s supported & OCR is supported too!

It looks like a good deal @ $ 20!

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.

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).

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.

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.

Sorry, this is incorrect.

 

JAWS 2018 can use a flatbed scanner to scan paper documents.  If you press JAWS Key+Space, then O, then A for Acquire, you will be pleasantly surprised.

 

All the best

JAWS 2018 cannot scan or read paper documents. It can only scan and read files such as pdf, mpeg or other picture files. Hardware of some type is needed such as a scanner or an all-in-one printer to scan paper documents.

What are the instructions to have Jaws 2018 scan paper documents, or what is the link to read them?

Hi,
No, you don't need to remap anything.
Go to where it says "keyboard layout," and select "laptop layout."
There you go.
You're all set.

Hi there. I'm Owais. I use Bootcamp through Jaws to load Windows and
everything works good except the CapsLock. The fix is to use a remapping
program like SharpKeys. I'm just not sure how to set it up. I just need
some assistance on how to do this. There are Videos for this on NouTube but
still I need assistance in which a Blind user could understand. Thans.
Sincerely,
Owais

Actually, iTunes works pretty decent, for iTunes that is, with no scripts other than what VFO has built into the native JAWS

Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get JAWS scripts for iTunes.  Anything I find is older and no longer available.  Thanks for any help.

Re: IE & JAWS download

Richard Turner
 

Because IE hasn't been updated in a coon's age.

I useFirefox or Chrome any more since IE is a error ridden piece of software these days.
