I think the issue is the connection to the service. If you found an old executable of the program, it probably wouldn't have anything it could connect to. Seems to me I heard that service was discontinued, and when I heard this, I wondered how long people had been using it. I stopped using it in about 2001.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I used to have AIM on my computer, but unfortunately it was lost when my laptop's motherboard went out. This was almost 9 years ago when I had an old IBM Thinkpad. Which brings me to my questions.

1. Is AIM still available to download or purchase? If so, where can I find it?

2. Does it work with any versions of JAWS? I have all versions of JAWS from 3.7 all the way up to JAWS 15.

What if you're someone like me, who seems to be a fan of 90's technology, and you run your operating system in its default state without updates so as to not break compatibility with old programs?

Hello,

I&#xA1;&#xAF;m not sure about your volume problem. JAWS uses the
computer&#xA1;&#xAF;s system volume but doesn&#xA1;&#xAF;t, to my knowledge
have a volume control itself. Again, use the PC&#xA1;&#xAF;s system volume
control to control the screen reading volume.

I&#xA1;&#xAF;m not sure about your misspelled word feature. You can use F7
in a Word document and/or Outlook e-mail to find and correct misspelled
words. You might want to get more help with this from the group.

JAWS should already be enabled to read other languages when
they&#xA1;&#xAF;re &#xA1;°found&#xA1;± on webpages and/or other things. That
is, the screen reader, when it finds a language other than English, should
automatically switch to the new language and read it. I think this works
with the type of synthesizer that&#xA1;&#xAF;s installed&#xA1;&#xAA;you can
have Eliquence (main synth for JAWS) use the Spanish voices or any others.
However, I&#xA1;&#xAF;m not sure how to enable automatic language
detection, though/seek help from the group or VFO (formerly Freedom
Scientific).

Sincerely,

Ashleigh S. Piccinino

Subject: Queries with JAWS 2018




Hi all,
I recently installed JAWS 2018 and have the following queries..
1. Is there some internal volume in JAWS as my Jaws outputs a very low
volume even when the speaker of the laptop is at 80%
. The speaker has no issue as songs are being played at a much lower
volume.
2. The Indian screen reader viz. Non visual display access indicates
when a word is wrongly spelt. How can I enable a similar feature in
Jaws?
3. How can I make Jaws read other languages?
Eagerly await suggestions.
Thanking you
Best
Turab

Hello listers,

I’m a new user of JAWS, so please forgive if
this question has already been asked.

I’m using the latest version of JAWS and Windows 10.

I tried to read PDF documents with Microsoft
Edge and JAWS with no success. Then I tried to
set the default program (Acrobat Reader) via the
control pannel also with no success. The only
defaults I get to change is for music, email and
videos but no option to change the default PDF
to Acrobat Reader DC. There’s another screen
reader wich works with Edge, but I do prefer to use JAWS.

Any advice would be apreciated.

Kind regards
Morné

Actually, to my surprise, it converted the image to text.

Hi Morné,

Jaws 2018 has the ability to read PDF files as
well. Highlight the PDF file, but don't open
it, open the context menu by pressing the
applications / context menu key or shift + F10,
arrow down to, Recognize with Jaws or something similar, and press enter.

Take Care. Mike. Go Dodgers!

Hi,
Correction: provided that it is enabled from Settings/Cortana and Search/Talk to Cortana/Let Cortana listen for my commands when I press the Windows logo key + C. This change was implemented since Windows 10 Version 1703. Also, Cortana itself must be enabled and available where you live.
Regarding the original question at hand: Cortana window remains open if you somehow interact with her - it won't go away automatically. In fact, Cortana always stays open (even in the background) due to the fact that the app that powers her interface (SearchUI.exe) is a universal app overlay powered by XAML.
Cheers,
Joseph

The complete list of Cortana commands

(Almost) everything you can say to Cortana.

BYSARAH JACOBSSON PUREWAL

MAY 6, 2016 8:30 AM PDT


If you don't use Cortana, Microsoft's
voice-activated personal assistant, you're missing out on some handy,
hands-free functionality -- especially now that she's fully integrated
into Windows 10, and Windows 10 is everywhere .


Like Apple's Siri and Google's Google Now, Cortana is an intelligent
personal assistant who can help you with everything from launching
applications to scheduling appointments. She can even adjust a handful
of device settings, such as toggling your Wi-Fi on and off. Microsoft
hasn't published a full list of Cortana commands, so we pulled together
this unofficial list of all the things you can ask or say to Cortana on
Windows 10 devices.


Hey, Cortana


There are a few ways to get Cortana's attention.


• Click or tap thhe Cortana button on the taskbar. If you do not see
Cortana on your taskbar, right-click the taskbar and go to Cortana >
Show Cortana icon . • If you have 'Hey, Corttana' enabled, simply say
"Hey, Cortana," followed by your question.

• If you're using a Windows Phone,, you can press and hold the search
button to activate Cortana.


Basics


• Ask abouut the weather. Ex.: "What's the weather like?" or "What will
the weather be like in two days?" or "Is it going to rain tomorrow?"


• Launch a program or open a website. Ex.:
"Launnch Mozilla Firefox" or "Open <http://CNET.com>;CNET.com."


• Make a phonne call. Ex.: "Call Sarah," or "Call John on speakerphone."


• Hear Cortana read the top news headlines. Ex.: "Show me top headlines."


• Take a note in OneNote. Ex..: "Take a note" or "Note it down."


• Draft an email. Ex.: "Write an email to [contact] saying [message]."


• Draft a text message. Ex.: "Write a text to [contact] saying [message]."


• See texts oor emails from a specific person.
Ex.: "Show me emails from Timmy."


• Perform simple calcuulations. Ex.: "What's 35
times 16?" or "What's 23 minus two?"


• Perform converssions. Ex.: "What is five miles
in kilometers" or "How many teaspoons in a cup?"


• Define a word. Ex.: "What's the definition
of 'table'?" or "Do you know what 'gargantuan' means?"


• Track packages (needs email accouunt
configured in the Mail app). Ex.: "Where are my packages?"


Settings


• Turn on/off Wi-Fi.


• Turn on/off Bluettooth.


• Turn on/off Airplane Mode. list ennd


Scheduling/Reminders


"What do I have next week?" or "When is my dentist appointment?"


• Add an appointment tto your calendar. Ex.:
"Add dentist appointment to Thursday at 3 p.m."
or "Schedule phone call with Lisa tomorrow at 5 a.m."


• Move an apppointment. Ex.: "Move my dentist appointment to Friday."


• Set up reminders based on timee, person, or
location. Ex.: "Remind me to call Timmy at 2
p.m." or "Remind me to ask about vacation time
when I talk to Jenny" or "Remind me to take out
the trash when I get home." Reminders can be
one-offs or recurring (e.g., every Wednesday),
and location-based reminders require a mobile device.


• Set an alarm. Ex.: "Set an alarm for 9 a.m. or "Wake me up in an hour."


• Show me my alarms.


• Ask about major hollidays. Ex.: "What day is
Christmas?" or "When is Labor Day?" list end


Search


• Find pictures, videos, documents, etc., on
yyour device from a specific time frame. Ex.:
"Find pictures from last week" or "Find
documents from May 2015" or "Find videos from yesterday."


• Search files by name. Ex.: "Can you find a
document called CNET?" or "Can you find a picture called 'cute dog'?"


• SSee basic search results, such as information
about public figures, companies, places, and pop
culture in Cortana's windows (without opening a
browser window). Ex.: "How tall is Harrison
Ford?" or "Who is the CEO of Google?" or "When
was the Lincoln Memorial built?" list end


Maps/Navigation


• Where am I?


• Show me driving/ppublic transit/walking directions to [location/landmark].


• How long will it take me to get to [locaation]?


• What is traffic like on the way tto [location]?


• Show me a map of [locationn]. Ex.: "Show me a
map of downtown Los Angeles," or "Show me a map
of the area around Disneyland." list end


Entertainment


•¢ Look up a sports score. Ex.: "What was the
score of the last Detroit Tigers game?"


• Finnd the run time of a movie. Ex.: "How long is Star Wars: Episode I?"


• Control music in thhe Groove app. Ex.: "Play
[artist/song/genre/playlist/album]," or "Shuffle the music."


• Limited control over music in other apps. Ex.: Pause song" or "skip track."


• Identify the song that's playing. Ex.: "Whaat is this song?"

The dongle is for using the keyboard with a computer which does not have

It is the same unifying receiver which comes with all the Logitech wireless
