Re: May need alternative to Adobe Acrobat Reader

Joseph Norton
 

Hi Bill:

I updated to the fall build of Windows 10 (actually, I did a full
install), and, I had the same result you did with Adobe Reader DC. It
now goes to 100 per cent reading that document. I'll try it with some
others too.

Weird how that one thing fixed it.

Thanks again for the tip.

Hi, Joseph. This is concerning your problem with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC,
and Windows 10, getting stuck at 89 percent. I recently upgraded my
computer from Windows 10, version 1803 to version 1809, (OS Build
17763.1). Since upgrading, I rescanned the Using FreeDos pdf with which
you were having trouble, when Adobe Reader was set to “Infer Reading Order
From Document”. Now that I have upgraded, the document no longer gets
stuck at 89 percent. If you upgrade your system to Windows 10, version
1809 through the System Updates under Settings>Update And Security, It
would be safe now for you to scan your pdf with the default settings in
Adobe Reader DC. You no longer need to use “Use Reading Order In Raw Print
Stream. The document will scan slower, but you might get a better
rendering of the document. This is because the default setting, “Infer
Reading Order From Document”, observes and processes the document with any
tags within the document.

Thanks, I’ll give that a look.

The document is pretty straight forward, but, Adobe freezes in the middle
of processing—maybe that’s actually JFW freezing. Maybe Adobe is just
fine with it.

However, NVDA doesn’t like it either.

Just in case anyone wants to look at it, it’s an eBook on using FreeDOS.

Acrobat is always kind of sluggish.
If it’s not a scanned image document and is straightforward in general
(iE, an etext or something), you can use qRead. It’s a nice little
programme that very quickly opens pdf and epub files. I like it because
it’s very fast. However it doesn’t have many of the features Adobe has.
It’s generally meant for books or similar context with straightforward,
linear text.

Hi listers:

Recently, I have been needing to access some PDF’s. For some reason,
whenever I try to use Acrobat Reader DC, the program seems to be very
sluggish, sometimes, even unresponsive. Is this becoming a problem? If
so, is there another solution that will work better with JFW?

Thanks!



Re: Using Macrium Reflect Version 7 to Take A Full System Image Backup

 

I had forgotten that Steve Matzura posted a direct link to a download site for Windows PE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) versions that are set up to talk when they run using NVDA.   That site is:  http://www.opopanax.net/download/ 

I have not used any of these talking Windows PE ISOs, but I have no reason whatsoever to believe they would not work.  The correct one for your system could be downloaded on its own, and then you could just download the Macrium Reflect software without Windows PE.

You would still need to create the Macrium recovery media, which should then use the talking Windows PE to build it.

Thanks Jonas,

I did a Dell Bios update this morning and the sound isn’t quite so tin-can like.

 

Would you recommend the Dell Audio manager?

 

That does not seem to be present on my system.

Do you have the Dell audio maneger installed?

Only other you may try is to uninstall the drivers and re install!

Re: Using Macrium Reflect Version 7 to Take A Full System Image Backup

Hi Brian,
thanks for the information. I had previously tried Macrium reflect using a standard user account, and found it to be inaccessible using screen readers. But having read your post, I tried it using an admin account, and found that it was accessible, as you've said.
I've used Macrium relect for quite a while, and it seems to have a good reputation.

David.

Hi Kevin,

 

The keystroke, Control, Shift + G, will give you what you want plus more.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Bill, thanks for the key strokes. Alt R and w has the information on the screen so I can review it much closer without having to press the jaws key and page down multiple times.

In 2016;

 

Hit f6 it puts you in the status line at the bottom of the doc and says page 1 of 1 and then arrow across to the right and it says words  and other things about the doc.

 

When you have your answer hit f6 and your back in the body of the doc.

 

By the way the person who said alt r in 2016 puts you in the review tab of the ribbon not a word count.

Kevin,  I am using MS Word 2007 and to get the word count, I use Insert + numpad 3.  I wouldn’t think that this would have changed in Word 16.  This command also gives you the number of pages in the document.

Hello, Is there a key stroke to get the word count in a MS word 2016 document? I’m using Windows 10 and Jaws 2018.

Thanks,

Kevin

 


Jaws2019.1810.6 Beta 2 Download Link + What's New

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi All,
 
The Jaws download link below works for both 32 and 64 bit operating systems.
 
32 & 64 Bit:
 
 
What's New article:
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the first Public Beta and Public Beta 2. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.
 
Speak Character Phonetically After Pause During Character Navigation
 
As you navigate by character, JAWS will now speak the phonetic representation of letters if you pause for a brief period of time. This enables you to immediately
hear a letter spoken phonetically without the need to perform an additional command.
 
By default, JAWS speaks the character phonetically after a one and a half second pause. To change the amount of time JAWS waits before the phonetic announcement,
or to completely turn off this feature, do the following:
 
list of 5 items
1. Press INSERT+6 on the number row to open Settings Center.
2. If you want changes to only apply to a particular application, select it from the Application list. Otherwise, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default
settings file.
3. Type "Phonetic."
4. Press DOWN ARROW to move to "When pausing after character navigation, speak character phonetically," then press SPACEBAR to cycle through the available
options.
5. Select OK to exit Settings Center.
list end
 
JAWS also offers a manual option to speak phonetics continuously as you navigate by character. Pressing the Say Character Keystroke (NUM PAD 5) twice quickly
toggles this feature on and off. If you are using the manual option for all letters, the pause announcement will not occur.
 
Prompt to Confirm when Exiting JAWS Now Optional
 
When you perform one of the commands to exit JAWS including INSERT+F4, a prompt displays asking if you are sure you want to quit JAWS. You can then press
ENTER to quit or ESC to cancel. JAWS 2019 now allows you to disable this prompt so that JAWS immediately exits. To disable the shutdown prompt, open the
Basics dialog box located in the JAWS Options menu, and clear the "Prompt to Confirm when Exiting JAWS" check box.
 
Notification of Spelling Errors in Word 365
 
JAWS was the first screen reader to introduce Spelling error detection in Microsoft Word around 1998. This feature indicated when the cursor moved into
or out of a spelling or grammatical error while navigating and was also able to count the errors on the current line. These errors could also be marked
in Braille with dots 7 and 8. However, the ability to count the errors and mark them in braille adversely affected the responsiveness of navigating the
document and was turned off by default.
 
The improvements to this feature in JAWS 2019 now offer the following above and beyond the prior functionality:
 
list of 4 items
• Play a buzzer sound during typing, when you press SPACEBAR after entering a misspelled word.
• Reliably underline errors in braille or count the errors on the line navigated to without any decrease in responsiveness.
• Detect advanced proofing issues, not just spelling and grammar errors.
• Read the error inline with the text as you navigate by line, similar to how JAWS indicates other text attributes such as bolded text, indicating the
error with speech, sound or voice change (using the Speech and Sounds Manager).
list end
 
To configure whether or not the buzzer sound is heard when SPACEBAR is pressed after mistyping a word, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) from Word or Outlook
and select or clear the "Spelling buzzer on mistyped words" check box. This option is available when using JAWS with Office 365 versions higher than 16.0.10000.
 

The other Spelling options in the Microsoft Word Quick Settings, "Spelling error detection" and "Grammatical error detection," currently remain the same.
They allow you to cycle Spelling and Grammar options between off, hearing spelling/Grammar errors as you navigate by character, word, line, or Say All,
or hearing spelling/Grammar errors plus count.
 
New Consolidated Setup Package
 
Starting with JAWS 2019 Public Beta 2, there is now one link to download and install JAWS for all supported operating systems and languages. You no longer
have to choose the correct setup executable based on your system as well as which language you need. When you begin the setup, the installer automatically
detects whether you are using 32 or 64-bit and installs the correct components. If you are doing a new install and you want to use a different language
other than the default for your operating system, select the Options button on the first installation screen and then choose a language. If you are updating
an existing installation, the Options button is not available as JAWS detects the language already installed and updates using the same language.
 
Other Changes
list of 17 items
• Resolved an issue with the Skim Reading Feature in Office 365/2016 and higher. When attempting to skim read text containing specific colors or attributes,
pressing ENTER on any of the links in the Skim Reading results was incorrectly moving you to the first entry each time.
• Addressed reported issues with the volume of system sounds being lowered unexpectedly in some situations when using external synthesizers.
• In response to customer feedback, the announcement of multi-line edit fields is now off by default. To enable this announcement, select the new "Announce
multi-line edit" option located in the Miscellaneous group in Settings Center.
• If the "Use Accessibility Driver for Screen Capture" option in Settings Center is cleared, resolved multiple issues where JAWS was not reading as expected
in some situations.
• When starting a Remote Desktop connection and JAWS is configured to launch automatically on the remote system, resolved an issue where an error message
about the accessibility driver was sometimes being displayed.
• When opening a page in Chrome, resolved an intermittent issue reported by some users where a page would appear blank until F5 was pressed to refresh.
• Resolved an issue where the edit field for setting a home page in the settings for Chrome could not be navigated to using JAWS.
• Addressed an issue in Google Chrome where JAWS was not announcing the currently selected item in combo boxes.
• If multiple check boxes are on a single line in Google Chrome, resolved an issue where JAWS was only speaking the first check box.
• Resolved an issue where the window title was sometimes not being updated in Chrome as expected. For example, when returning to the Inbox in Gmail from
an open message.
• JAWS no longer speaks extraneous information when typing in edit combo boxes in Firefox and Chrome.
• Added support for navigating tree views in Edge.
• Resolved an issue with the JAWS command to announce the application version (CTRL+INSERT+V) not always working as expected in Microsoft Office apps.
• When switching to Outlook 365 from another application, addressed issues where focus changes were not being announced properly.
• Addressed issues with comments, footnotes, and endnotes not being announced as expected when navigating documents in Office 365. Also, resolved an issue
where page, section, and column breaks in Word documents were being announced twice if JAWS was configured to speak the number of comments on a line.
• In Excel, addressed a customer reported issue with auto complete not working as expected when typing data into a cell.
• Resolved an issue where the Select All command in the Spanish version of Word was not working.
list end
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Interesting, this brings up the exact same Word Count dialog as ALT+R,W does.  

When you hover over controls it will typically show you if there is a shortcut that is of the form Modifier Key + Single Additional Key.  The Word Count control doesn't do that and I'm guessing that it's because CTRL+SHIFT+G (and it is a triple key press shortcut) is a triple key press shortcut.

As per usual, there are many roads to the Rome.

Bill, I pressed F6 twice. I get the message “return to reading”. I couldn’t tab or arrow anywhere. Wonder if I need to setup some option in word to allow the use of two F6 keys. When it comes down to it, I have the key strokes of alt/r/w or control/shift/g.

F6 twice will get you to the status bar. From here, your arrows will show you word count, as well as other items.

Using JAWS, with the message open, insert+a brings up the attachment list. Shift+tab from the message body should show the attachment list, right arrow through it.  You can also press alt+f, M to save all attachments.
