Re: JAWS Scripts for Audible & YouTube

 

Here again the link to Doug Lee’s Youtube scripts where it says:

 

Using the JAWS Scripts For Youtube Last Revised August, 2018

This Guide provides tips for using Youtube with JAWS For Windows and these scripts. When the scripts are installed and Youtube is open and focused in a supported browser, this document can be opened via a double press of

JAWSKey+F1 (or Insert+F1).

 

I hope you don’t mind me sending the link, the only other thing I could do if you want the same informative answer you get when you go there and read about is would be for me to copy and paste all the information into this email.

Hi David,

 

I also received the warning “Windows protected  your PC” or something like that. You can simply tab to “More Info”, activate that and then tab to “Install anyways”, after that the installation proceeds normally.

I'd like to talk to doug lee concerning what I experienced when trying to download the jaws scripts for audible.  What happened when I downloaded the jaws scripts for audible was that I tried to install them and I got a message saying that the jaws scripts were blocked by windowsdefender.  I have jaws2018 on my system as a demo.  That is why I didn't install the jaws scripts for youtube.

Re: What backup software can we use with jaws?

 

Quite easy if you are willing to spend a few hundred Dollars. You can simply go out and buy two 4Tb external hard drives or, if you spend more money, you can buy a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device. You also need to put hard drives into this, most NAS devices are 2 or 4 disk units (at least those for personal and small business use) and you can easily get 8 Tb or 10 Tb NaS drives, but they are not cheap, on something like this you would probably spend $1,500 or up.
If you want just external USB 3.0 drives you can look at something like this, it is $137.99 on Amazon Canada, probably costs $100 or $120 US in the States:

Seagate Backup Plus 4TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0, Black (STDR4000100)
https://www.amazon.ca/Seagate-Backup-Portable-External-STDR4000100/dp/B00ZTRXFBA

You can also get larger backup hard drives from Seagate which include a USB hub (the large ones with 8Tb and 10Tb all seem to have the hub), here is the 8Tb model on Amazon Canada, it is $209.99 if you jump to the 10Tb model it goes up a lot to $389.99 so you can almost buy two 8Tb models for 1 10Tb model:
https://www.amazon.ca/Seagate-External-Desktop-Storage-STEL8000100/dp/B01HD6ZLQ6?th=1

All of this is also available from Best Buy, Staples and other stores and of course companies like Western Digital also make such drives. Western Digital, for example, makes the "MyBook" series of external drives which come in 3Tb, 4Tb, 6Tb, 8Tb and 10Tb. Here is the link on Western Digital's site, sorry, don't have time to look all fo this up on Amazon or Best Buy, it's an easy thing to do however if you know what to search for, writing this email with all the links took me 5 minutes:
https://www.wdc.com/products/external-storage/my-book-new.html

Sieghard

Focus 14 - Refreshing the screen

Jeremy <jeremy.richards7@...>
 

Hi all,

I'm having a bit of a problem on my Focus 14 5th Gen braille display. When
first turning on the device, and when I press the command to show the
current date (Menu key + dots 1-4-5) the manual states I should be able to
press any cursor routing button to return focus to the time on the main
screen. This command doesn't work reliably in that the date continues to
show as if it is stuck.

As a possible solution, does anyone know how to refresh the output on the
braille display? In JAWS one can press JAWSKey+Escape to refresh what is
written on the screen. I'm wondering if such a command works on a braille
display.

Thank you,

JR

Re: speaking passwords

Jeremy <jeremy.richards7@...>
 

Hi Netbat,

Using JAWS, try activating the password edit field (any edit field) then press Insert+2 until you hear "None." You can now enter a password and not hear any feedback whatsoever.

You are activating the JAWS "Typing echo setting."

You will likely have to return the setting back to the way it was before you modified it. Simply press and hold the Jawskey then press the #2 repeatedly until you find the setting of your choice.

To make life easier on yourself, you should find a website for which you are asked to enter a password and practice entering the password while JAWS is conveying "star, star, star). At some point you will get use to it. There are thousands of JAWS users out there, and this is not a prevalent problem.

i would try this on a flash drive. i do not know if any system changes you make

you have to have someone change the boot order in system bios so the computer

and I've been in this business a very long time.

If someone can actually tell me where one is, I'd love to look at it.

If Windows itself, as in from your hard drive, actually boots then you're not
doing a typical system image recovery, which is what's the crux of the matter.

For your security, speaking passwords is not available on some screen readers like JAWS for Windows. A workaround that sometimes works is to type the password on your choice of word processor and then copy and paste it onto the password textfield. #Privacy #TypingEcho

If sighted users can't see the password why should we?

Dam shame that FS doesn't think its users have the capacity to make a
decision to speak passwords or not.

With both Window Eyes and NVDA you have a option to speak passwords as
you type them in.  I sure would like to see this feature in JAWS.
