You can remove it, but, as I recall, this won’t increment your authorized license count.

Hello,

can anyone tell me, how to remove license of Vispero product from computer. I ask it because I don't want to luse a license when I would reformat my machine. so before I would begin this process, I have wanted to remove license first so it would not be permanently lost.

thanks for your help.

If you're talking about Field codes then ALT+F9 is the toggle to reveal/hide (or at least return to non-field code format) the field codes in a Word document.

Re: setting up a new lenovo laptop

Michelle's Home Emails
 

hi Marvin 

Michelle Stevens here, 

when I unpacked my  Lenovo I had to get a sighted person to turn offf the function hot keys in the bios. Otherwise it will interfere with jfw. 
This is done by using a pen in the left side of the machine to enter into bios during startup. once the person turns off the hotkeys in function click save and exit and your right to start setting up windows. 

You may be able to start norator to get some voice and very basic braille display. 

good luck

Hello Marvin:
 
I hope you do not mind me correcting the mispelling in the subject line.
 
Have you run the command, "chkdsk c:" without the quotes, without any switches in the command line window, to see if Windows reports any problems with the laptop's hard drive?

Hi, was wondering, is there a utility for my Toshiba satellite pro c-50-a, which will tell me the health of my hardware on my systems.

Any ideas.

Wondering if my hard disk is starting to go. Jaws takes forever to load, after a while. So thinking about getting a Lenovo laptop.

So, any ideas.

Any sites or software you use, if any Toshiba users here.

Marvin.

Ps: did get the pc health monitor, but does not give me much info.

That does not meet my requirements for an advanced point of sale system, it's more of an invoicing/accounting system for people with a very limited requirement for a few products or services.
In the approx. 12 years since I have had my current point of sale system we have accumulated over 10,000 customers in the database, there are about 10,000 active and over 20,000 inactive items in the database and of course there is the sales history for all these customers many of which are local and come in on a very regular bases. Furthermore there are thousands of purchase orders when we receive shipments, thousands of pictures which are associated with the products and my system needs to be capable to link to our website and sync our online database/store to the physical store.

Hello Jessica,

I would be very curious what your need/requirement for a point of sale system is. I don't use Quickbooks, but a different system, but it's an older end of life product and I am very much looking for a replacement as well. I started a correspondence with Vispero about this since many of the major and affordable POS systems which are available have many accessibility challenges or are outright inaccessible. Eric Damery replied to me and said that they definitely are aware that people out there are needing a good accessible solution, hopefully this conversation will continue now that the holidays are over and while it may take a while I am hopeful that something will come of it.
In the meantime I'd love to hear from anybody who run a retail business or work at one where they may need to use a point of sale system. I think one of the issues is that if I look at a particular solution and approach the company I may be the only blind person they have ever had contact them in which case they may not take my request too serious.

I think that was true for a lot of us.  But I also think that calling the menus "intuitive" is a side effect of having used them for years, too.  There has never been a complex program I've worked with, when it was completely new to me, that I'd call intuitive even though that's a term that gets tossed around alot.  They're all puzzles one has to work one's way through, and once one has one often wonders how they ever "didn't get that."

The ribbon interface does seem to be more "visually intuitive" to some, but for others such as myself it's a messy clutter compared to a menu-submenu system.  But for people who can see it does have the advantage of putting a very great many of the most frequently used features "front and center" if you can wade through the clutter.
 
When it comes to inserting rows/columns, though, I've always done that via the context menu.  It just makes sense to me to "work over/under for rows or left/right for columns" of where I currently am.  I also have a tendency to want to add blocks of rows at a time, so I'll often select several rows then do an insert rows command.  Adding 4 blocks of 5 rows is much faster than doing 20 individual rows.

changing document presentation on web-pages with hotkey

William Windels
 

Hello,

I use win10 with the last version of chrome/firefox and jaws19.

 

In some situations, it would be nice to change teh document presentation mode from screenview to simple presentation.

In earlier versions of jaws, I think jaws 16 and before, there was a hotkey to switch between different document presentation modes.

 

Since this hotkey function is gone, perhaps this is related to the smart-navigation function.

 

Anyway, is there a way to switch between document-presentation modi with 1 hotkey

(not with insert_+v and select there the option)?

Or can I configure that a specific web-domain should appear always in simple layout while the standard setting is screen-layout?

  

 

Kind regards,

William Windels

Press the applications key and arrow down to insert and press enter. There

Alt+i, then r, will also insert a row.

Brian,
 
Yes, I learned to work with the ribbon years ago, and have learned several quick Alt+ keystrokes to get the job done. But from my perspective, the menus were more intuitive overall. Can't help saying that, but for me, it was true.
 
Of course I don't use those virtual ribbons provided by JAWS -- just a crutch.

Dave,

           I really don't get all the complaining about the ribbon interface.  It's a menu, just laid out more visually for those who can see, and more "horizontally" than vertically.

           When you have a program like Word, or Excel, or any complex piece of software that has hundreds through thousands of functions there is no way to make keyboard shortcuts "intuitive."  They've never been intuitive.  You find your own set of "greatest hits" that you use all the time, over time, and commit them to memory.

            I don't find it any more difficult to think of the Home Tab/Ribbon, Insert (or Delete or Format) commands than I did when they were arranged as dropdown menus.  People just don't want to even think about it, but that's too bad, as the Ribbon interface is not going away anytime soon and the old Menu interface is gone for good.  It just is not all that difficult to use the ribbons, but it certainly is if you resist them, and some have been resisting them for well over a decade now.  What a waste of time and effort.  It's easier, and more sensible, to learn how they work.
