Re: [Bulk] Adobe Reader X

Deb and the girls
 

I have Window-eyes at work. Adobe will not read some documents. It says empty document or does not come up at all when presented with aPDF file. It does this when the emailed material is similar to a picture of words such as captcha is.
Any thoughts?

Re: [Bulk] JAWS 13.0.638 - Was [Bulk] Outlook 2007

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Something like that happened to me with 12. It installed, but was
flaky, requiring one or two repair attempts. Maybe I'll wait a day or
two to see if a repost occurs. That last early update (the one that
appeared on the unofficial Web site) was strange too.

Dave,

Yes, I used the 32 bit version. This happened to me once before with one
of
the 12 or maybe 13 releases, I can't remember right now. I even
downloaded
the .exe file a second time to be sure it wasn't my first download. In
both
instances, I got stuck on the "please wait while Jaws updates your
system"
or something page and get the endless cherps. It will get stuck at the
96%
level.

Both times this has happened, I've been able to restart my computer with
no
issues and when I check the about option in the Jaws menu, it will show
the
updated version, but I'll notice weird behavior with certain commands
and
whatnot. This time though, if I unloaded Jaws using the insert+f4
command
and try to reload it, Jaws would not come up. Thankfully I still have
JFW 11
on my system so I just went ahead and used that to the uninstall process
for
13 and did the reinstall with the executable file.

The update always goes through fine after I do the initial uninstall and
reinstallation.

Just one of those things I suppose.

Chris,

Interesting you point out the install problem. I downloaded the update
(as I

do each time) and had to install twice before it came up. Then just to
be
safe I did a repair. I noticed that during the first two installs the
default "valium voice" was not there, but in the repair it finally came
on
board.

Not the usual seamless install of an upgrade, and perhaps the executable

posted to the web is somewhat corrupted.

I used the 32-bit version. Did you?

I had an issue with the install where it got hung up at 96% completed. I
ended up having to uninstall version 13 and do a reinstall. This
happened to
me once before. Really odd. Also, I'm noticing that Jaws is a tad
sluggish
again in Firefox (Google Reader). Similar to how it was in the various
JFW
12 releases. I haven't come across the not selected issue with e-mails,
but
I'm only running Outlook 2003.

I removed JAWS 13.0.638 a(using restore) and am back to using JAWS
13.0.527.

My bad experience was with a web site where I had the "Remember me on
this
computer" feature enabled at the logon. Normally I hear my user name in
the
edit field when opening such web pages.

With this last update of JAWS (and with no other versions before) I
heard a
reading of the lines of one of the underlying script files read on and
on
and on. The username was actually there, but JAWS was off reading
something
completely wrong. The offending text string was no where on the screen
-- it

was just being fed into the synthesizer.

Anyone else seen this behavior? If so please report to FS.

Hi Mike,

When you're in the message list, check to see what JAWS says your screen
colors are. You do this by pressing insert + 5 on the numbers row at the
top of your keyboard. Then, let's see if that's really correct. Have Kim
look at your screen and tell you what the colors really are. That might
help someone on the list solve this problem for us.

RJ,

Everyone is a beta tester for at least the first 3 months of a new
release.

Okay, I'm cynical. Actually the new version does pre-release about a
month
in advance and everyone is welcome to download and report bugs. However
given the short time I really don't think those bug reports ever make it
to
the first release. I suspect that these bugs get fixed in the succeeding

monthly updates. Okay, cynical again, but not quite so much, eh?

Other than that if you want to be a Beta tester for real, you need to
contact FS directly and let them know you're interested. Then be
prepared to

devote a lot of time to wringing out as many quirks as possible, with as

many applications as possible, in as many operating environments as
possible

during the testing cycles, and report every single thing you find that
either works or does not work.

If I ever retire and have nothing to do, I'll volunteer.

Subject: JAWS 13 Doesn't read attachments

All:
I've had to switch back to JAWS 12, temporarily, I hope.
For those of you using Outlook 2003, you know there are two ways (at least)
of accessing email attachments:
1. From the Inbox listing, one can right-click, press shift plus F-10, or
press the Applications key to produce a list of choices. One has a submenu
called "View attachments."
In JAWS 12, I can see 13 attachments to this particular message I have.
Only one attachment shows up in JAWS 13. This is a huge problem.
2. When in the message, by pressing control plus shift plus o, one can
change the format to plain text. This puts all the attachments up in an
attachment box. In JAWS 13, when I arrow along in that box, all I hear is
semicolon. In JAWS 12, the attachment is identified, the file attachment
name, and the size are stated.
If this has been mentioned before, I apologize. I've only been distractedly
following the list of late. I'd like to know if this has been reported as a
nasty bug. We should be moving to Office 10 soon. So, perhaps this is only
a matter of historical significance.
Nevertheless, for the present, in this regard, JAWS 13 is definitely a step
backwards. This makes JAWS 13 a non-starter for me. Wonder if I can get my
wasted SMA back and wait for JAWS 14? I think it will likely snow in Hades
first. <SMILE>

Hi,

Well, it's like the previous versions; slow and crash-prone. The only difference is the user interface which has been distorted. I think the slowness issue is related to combination of JAWS with it. I always prefer to stay away from Adobe Acrobat by converting PDF files to TXT or word.

application (I haven't compared notes with sighted users on this issue).
I've been using that little reader that came with Thunder; it lacks
fancy features, but is rock steady.

Hello.

They have just upgraded me at work to Adobe Reader X from Adobe
Reader
9.

Now when I load a document, I can't read anything.

When I do a down arrow it just says blank.

It is not an OCR thing since I could read the same document with
Adobe
Reader 9.

Any ideas if there are particular settings under preferences that I
need
to set in order for me to be able to read .PDF documents?

I am using Jaws 12.1169.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Eric.

Re: becoming a jaws beta tester

Judy Jones <jtj1@...>
 

All this is why I haven't budged from Jaws 10 on my home computer. I have had Jaws 11 and 12 at work, and they don't seem as stable, have little glitches, get hung up with IE8, etc. Now I understand the agency is going to upgrade to Jaws 13? I'm not optimistic, although I appreciate the intent.

RJ,

Everyone is a beta tester for at least the first 3 months of a new release.

Okay, I'm cynical. Actually the new version does pre-release about a month
in advance and everyone is welcome to download and report bugs. However
given the short time I really don't think those bug reports ever make it to
the first release. I suspect that these bugs get fixed in the succeeding
monthly updates. Okay, cynical again, but not quite so much, eh?

Other than that if you want to be a Beta tester for real, you need to
contact FS directly and let them know you're interested. Then be prepared to

devote a lot of time to wringing out as many quirks as possible, with as
many applications as possible, in as many operating environments as possible

during the testing cycles, and report every single thing you find that
either works or does not work.

If I ever retire and have nothing to do, I'll volunteer.

It will be a simple answer of labelling the correct graphic. As I don't use
Outlook I don't know what the graphic number is but if you have a few
messages without attachments that are read, and your one with attachments is
read then you can tell which is the right graphic as the one with
attachments will be the only one. To label the graphic move to the message
with the attachments, then go to the verbocity menu and turn on to show all
grpahics, then turn on the JAWS cursor and control arrow to the left until
you get to the graphic. Then press insert G and label the graphic as
attachment.

I've had to switch back to JAWS 12, temporarily, I hope.
For those of you using Outlook 2003, you know there are two ways (at least)
of accessing email attachments:
1. From the Inbox listing, one can right-click, press shift plus F-10, or
press the Applications key to produce a list of choices. One has a submenu
called "View attachments."
In JAWS 12, I can see 13 attachments to this particular message I have.
Only one attachment shows up in JAWS 13. This is a huge problem.
2. When in the message, by pressing control plus shift plus o, one can
change the format to plain text. This puts all the attachments up in an
attachment box. In JAWS 13, when I arrow along in that box, all I hear is
semicolon. In JAWS 12, the attachment is identified, the file attachment
name, and the size are stated.
If this has been mentioned before, I apologize. I've only been distractedly
following the list of late. I'd like to know if this has been reported as a
nasty bug. We should be moving to Office 10 soon. So, perhaps this is only
a matter of historical significance.
Nevertheless, for the present, in this regard, JAWS 13 is definitely a step
backwards. This makes JAWS 13 a non-starter for me. Wonder if I can get my
wasted SMA back and wait for JAWS 14? I think it will likely snow in Hades
first. <SMILE>
