FLAC Encoder that works with JAWS

Joe DiNero
 

Good Evening Folks

 

I am looking to digitize my cd collection in FLAC format. I had digitized my collection  years ago however, an external drive failed  and we are at square one. Anyone know of a good ripping program that will encode FLAC and is accessible with JAWS. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Joe

Hi Paul!

Thanks for not think too badly of me, and giving me the information.

Is it easy to use and install?

working with file index

Klaus Vielhauer
 

Hello experts,
Navigating my Network player Library webpage with Internet explorer and Jaws has one major quirks.
If I open the library (1300 lines)
I have on top of the page an area announced as "Navigation region"
next is a line indicating the present task selected "editing library and a button ...(more) leading to a "rescan library menue" that works
the next line shows the numbers and letters in order to scrol thru the library.
Here comes the problem - Jaws reads only the presently selected letter but I have not found a way to view or select another letter.
My wife has no problem to change letters with the mouse.
 
when I am in The list of albums - announced as "main region" - I am able to scroll with "page down" - this progresses in small chunks and it takes forever til I reach the Bottom of the file.
 
Please help
Klaus


Re: Braille Display Question

Joe DiNero
 

Well if I am fully honest. I should have embraced it a lot earlier. But no time like the present unfortunately my braille skills are not so great I know my uncontracted braille but was fast tracked through a grade 2 course and like a foreign language if you don’t use it you lose it. So have to start from scratch with that.

Good Afternoon

 

I will preface this message by saying that I am a former low vision user who has become a non vision user and sort of new to many things. Raille displays is one of those where I am absolutely clueless are there any online resources for some sort of primer on the basics of them? Also I am in the market for one so my basic question is since I am purchasing one on my own and budget is of concern I am looking for a second hand model. Having said that do braille displays become obsolete? Meaning where newer operating systems don’t support them etc…I am looking at the Focus line but looking at older generation models because of price point. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Joe

A password manager is a program that helps store your passwords for different websites so it can fill them in for you. They will have a master password you have to enter, then select the website from your saved list and it will put the password in for you. Something like that. I've not used one yet, but that is my basic understanding.
It doesn't have any connection to protecting against viruses or anything.

Re: Braille Display Question

Marianne Denning
 

I would recommend the Braille Edge from HIMS. I do that because it has some basic note taking abilities and you can read Bookshare books on it. It is not a full note taker. I have a Focus 40 that is 5 years old and it still works great with the latest version of JAWS. I would stay away from the very oldest displays.

Today I had to scan a document and send it to someone via email. After the scanned document came into my email I opened the attachment to verify that I scanned the document correctly. Normally I would use OCR within JAWS to scan and read the PDF file. However, today when it opened it gave me the warning that it was blank and asked me if I wanted to have JAWS OCR it. It may seem trivial but knowing that  you only have to hit enter and off it goes is really nice. I assume this came in the last update and it mentions Fusion so it works with Fusion as well. Again it seems trivial as it only saves you a couple of keystrokes but when you anticipate that it makes for more productivity. Sliced bread eat your heart out.

Hi all: The developers of 1password are very interested in making their app accessible. Personally, I keep my passwords in a certain location, and I look them up there. I did try to set some passwords up with 1password, but I found that I always had to fill in my login info for the websites. There must have been something I missed, for I didn't find it to be a time-saver, since my login details didn't pop in. So, Paul, I probably missed something that other people seem to have gotten.
