Re: JAWS question about picking out greeting cards online with total blindness

Walker, Michael E
 

Hi Richard, that sounds amazing. I will have to check it out. I bet that will help with overcoming accessibility obstacles in other apps on my computer.

 

As for greeting cards, I thought of a solution. I am going to accept that when I order a card online, before I order, I will have a sighted person describe the decorations, as I know there is more to cards than text. If a sighted person is not present, I can send them a link to the online card, for them to tell me if it looks good. It is a way of double checking that I am really ordering what I want.

 

Thanks,

Mike

Seeing AI is on your iPhone, but it does read computer screens in the Short Text mode, but I've never tried it with greeting cards.

The app is free and well worth your time anyway to check it out. It now has a handwriting mode where you take a picture of handwritten text and it does an amazing job of reading it. This is a first for OCR software, and it is FREE!

Well Mike, I have heard there’s an app called “Seeing A I” which can read higly stylized text that other portable OCR software can’t. But I’ve not tested it independently. My Visual Impairment Services Team coordinator showed me how it works with her iPhone and it picked up text that KNFB Reader didn’t. Hope this helps. Shalom, Bill Tessore

Does anyone know how I can find them easily?

No matter what I type into the search field, I get results that are totally errelivant.

 

Thanks for any advice,

Re: Screenreader Accessible Data Recovery Software

Tony
 

Since the drive is good and the only problem is a few deleted files, it
should only cost an hour or two for labor to recover what they can. You
will probably get a lot of complete and partial files to check. DOS and the
earlier versions of Windows only changed the first character of the file
name to a question mark and left the rest the same. Probably still the
same.

I rarely use shift-delete for this reason. At least I have a while to check
the recycle bin.

It is best to connect the drive to another computer if it is your system
drive. That way you don't have to worry about Windows writing over your
data. Windows frequently creates new files in the background and it
considers your deleted files as available space.

Tony

I suggest you to bring your pc to a specialist without overriding much more

Even if you find a good app, the file names would not give you much clue
about what they might be, since the ones would be some random numbers.

When I had a mishap with my first external hard drive, Lacie was going to
charge $3000 for recovery! And that was back in 2007. The mishap I had with
my first hard drive was when I plugged it in and smelled smoke. My brother
said I put the electrical cord in backwards. I didn't even think that was
possible. I'm certainly willing to pay however much it may cost, but I'm
saying that right this moment, I'm not able to pay those big prices, as
that's currently money I don't have! Right now, I'm trying Ease Us Data

automatic change verbosity

Robert Logue
 

I would like to change verbosity in Thunderbird under certain conditions.  I think it can be done with frames.  But, I get confused when I try to set one up.


I want to switch to advanced verbosity when I open a message to read. Then switch to beginner or intermediate when focus returns to any other window in Thunderbird.


The reason is Jaws is way to verbose when opening messages.  I had to modify the advanced verbosity to stop a lot of the chatter.

Jaws doesn't read other dialogs well with that verbosity.

I can set the condition for the title in Jaws frames but that's about as far as I get.


Any tips?
