Using Jaws with Audacity

Brandon Keith Biggs <brandonboy13@...>
 

Hello,
Is there anyone who uses Audacity with Jaws?
I’m trying to figure out how to delete the collection I made. One would think that you’d set the curser hit enter and then hit delete, but that evidently is not how it works.
If this is way off topic can you please send me an email privately at:
brandonboy13@comcast.net
Thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs

Can I Stop This Dialog from Popping Up?

Rick Miller
 

Every time I log on to the Internet or to Facebook, I am getting a dialog asking me to try the new Bing Bar toolbar to improve my Facebook mail, but I cannot find an option to cancel it. The only thing the dialog is asking me to do is to try it. Is there a way using JAWS that I can stop this dialog from popping up every time I log on to either the Internet or Facebook? If so, how?

Re: adding contacts in microsoft outlook with jaws:

Cristóbal
 

You can either press control +1 to get to the contacts window and then
control + n for new contact or from anywhere in Outlook, shift + control + c
will open a new contact window.

Remember, you can only have 999 contacts in your addressbook before the contacts list goes away.

David Ingram
 

Hi, I thaught that you might want to know the limit of addresses that you can have in your contacts list before jaws speaks nothing. You can have up to 999 contacts in your addressbook before jaws says nothing because the limit has been reached.

alt+h, then left arrow until you hear send and receive, down arrow until you hear add sender to addressbook. Hope this helps. I'm using oe 2003. Hope this helps.

To be clear, I am not the only on the block with financial management
programs. Cash manager is a good one, and recently on the list you have seen
an announcement for PeachTree accounting complete. This is also another good
option. Whichever you choose has to be the right one for you. It is a matter
of preference and I am thrilled to bring some options to the table. I'm not
trying to make a huge profit from this. If I can get compensated a little,
that would make it worthwhile.
If you are really into accounting, perhaps PeachTree is the way to go. If
you are a beginner and need a solid program that works without scripts, try
Money Manager. Quickbooks is heavily used in the main stream in businesses
and being able to manage your own company or business is essential to
independence. Quicken is more of a personal finance management program.
These program scripts are not meant to be a solid solution, only a bridge
that can cross the gap until companies start to realize they need to work
with bigger organizations such as the NFB, AFB, and others and making this a
more accessible world.
I'm not competing with anyone, I am certainly making that clear. I just want
more options because when I first started on this path, I was shocked to
find out that a lot was certainly out of our reach. This is my calling and I
choose to stick this out and be of service to others.

I might as well announce it but Quickbooks and Quicken scripts are on the
way, however I am not releasing them as of yet.
They are still in testing and development.
The quickbooks scripts are towards the end of development and testing but
quicken is more of a challenge. Quicken uses a lot of graphics and it takes
time to find them all to label them my special way. Quickbooks works
wonderfully with 2011 and development for Quicken 2012 is going good so far.
Quickbooks 2012 is coming soon.
The NFB National Federation of the Blind is participating in this particular
project. I flew out to Baltimore and they were very interested in this new
development. I might be coming under fire for even releasing this
information, but I'm not scared. I have complete faith that what I'm doing
for the blind community is justified and backed up legally.
Besides, wouldn't you all like the option to use such mainstream software

Re: adding contacts in Microsoft outlook with jaws:

Dondi
 

Hi,

Not really sure about how to do this in Outlook 2003 but this is how you can
do it in 2010. You can create a anywhere contact by pressing the key
combination of control+shift+C. This will open up a contact dialog box that
you can fill out and do a alt+S to save the info. Another way is to jump to
the contacts by pressing control+3. Amd then pressing control+N for new
contact. Like I said these work in 2010. Sorry I can't be of any more help
then this.

Then depending on your budget, you'll be fine with a core i3 or 5, i7
would just be totally unnececery and pricy. I'd recommend 4 GB RAM
however you could get away with 3 GB and even 2 if pushing it. I don't
know if you're in to multimedia like movies and music but for storage
I'd recommend at the least a 320 GB hard drive however I think 500 GB
is a nice size. As I previously said I recommend 64 bit windows if
havving more than 3 GB ram or allowing for upgrades in the future and
at the minimum go for windows 7 home premium. I don't know ware you
live or what prices are like but I personally like Dell laptops very
much although those with higher specs can be a bit pricy. HP laptops
is also very good but usually a lot more expensive than other brands,
Acer, fujitsu and Toshiba is also modaratly priced although I don't
like toshiba very much I had a bad experience with 3 different toshiba
laptops. I'll rather go for jaws professional, it's more expensive but
then yu're not stuck with a home version of windows and it will be
better in the long run as it sounds to me like you're not a person who
updates with every version.
Look around, get specs and prices, look at a price that you'll be
whilling to pay, then you can come back to me and anytime ask again
I'll help.

I want a laptop because I'm tired of being tethered in the basement. LOL.

It's a plesure, Tell me, what do you want to use the laptop for then
I'll recommend one because a i7 processor is only really nececery if
you want it for a specific reason like audio production, video
production or if you're a heavy gamer oh and if money is no option. If
you just want a laptop for general use then a i5 or even i3 would do
the job and it will be a lot cheeper.

Can't tell you what the advantage of jaws home adition is over
professional but on windows 7 I can tell you that the professional
versions make stuff like networking and security easyer. if I can give
you a quick run through. Windows 7 startup or whatever it's called is
a waist of time, home basic is better but for only a little more you
can get home premium which is a lot better, professional also doesn't
cost that much more than home premium and then ultimate is the top
package and quite expensive compared to the others. As a minimum I'll
go for home premium or professional, the only difference between
professional and ultimate is that ultimate comes with drive and file
incription which I honestly never used since having windows 7 and
ultimate also comes with different language packs which you can anyway
get from the internet as updates if you have the professional version.
As I said previously also check 32 or 64 bit versions, 32 bit can only
use 3 GB RAM so if you have more RAM than 3 GB or even plan to get
more in the future go 64 bit from the start.
With the core i7 laptops mentioned before I gathered you are prepaired
to spend a lot of money because the i7 laptops is currently the most
expensive and top of the range, usually with these laptops it will
come with a pre defined version of windows and I doubt if it will be
anything under professional 64 bit because havving a i7 processor and
32 bit windows will also be counter productive and a waist because you
won't even be able to use half of your processor power. If you are
anyway whilling to spend a lot on a laptop I would say just get jaws
pro as well.

I happen to be a big fan of Toshiba laptops, but in fact all laptops are

Full'size laptops including keypads are quite common nowadays. Simply
check
the description if ordering online or specify if dealing with a store.

If buying hands'on, it´s good to see what kinds of extra keys the laptop
has. Some have capacititave buttons, activated by touch, that turn wiFi
on

on
them and use them once you learn their order. It is wise to do this
because
otherwise you might inadvertently touch the WiFi button deactivating

and not be good at touching the right button again to reactivate it.

To keep this on topic, I'm not aware of any problem you'll face when
buying
a laptop to use with JAWS 13. I don't think you can go wrong.

Subject: new on the list

Hello all,

I joined this list a few days ago, and am pleased to recognize a few
names
from other lists and previous JFW lists.

I will be upgrading my Jaws sometime this year from version 8 to 13. I
feel
it will be almost like relearning everything, as so much has been added
since version 8.

As part of my upgrade, I will also be buying a new computer, and would
like
anyone's recommendations for the following 2 items.

1. I want to get a laptop preferrably with a keypad if such a thing
exists.
Otherwise, well differentiated keys, good battery life, and durable. A
full-sized laptop is fine.

2. I am also looking for a small netbook that will have more limited
use.
I
want the netbook to be small and durable with a reasonably tactile
keyboard.
This device does not need to be as new, as I am willing to shop
secondhand
for it.

As I know nothing about laptops and small computers, whether they be
netbooks, notebooks or ultra mini PCs, any experiences are welcome. Are
there things I should be aware of concerning JAWS when looking for
laptops
or smaller PCs? E.g., video cards, onboard software that might be a
problem,
etc.?

Thanks.

Jean

Re: buying a laptop: was new on the list

Nickus de Vos <bigboy529@...>
 

Then depending on your budget, you'll be fine with a core i3 or 5, i7
would just be totally unnececery and pricy. I'd recommend 4 GB RAM
however you could get away with 3 GB and even 2 if pushing it. I don't
know if you're in to multimedia like movies and music but for storage
I'd recommend at the least a 320 GB hard drive however I think 500 GB
is a nice size. As I previously said I recommend 64 bit windows if
havving more than 3 GB ram or allowing for upgrades in the future and
at the minimum go for windows 7 home premium. I don't know ware you
live or what prices are like but I personally like Dell laptops very
much although those with higher specs can be a bit pricy. HP laptops
is also very good but usually a lot more expensive than other brands,
Acer, fujitsu and Toshiba is also modaratly priced although I don't
like toshiba very much I had a bad experience with 3 different toshiba
laptops. I'll rather go for jaws professional, it's more expensive but
then yu're not stuck with a home version of windows and it will be
better in the long run as it sounds to me like you're not a person who
updates with every version.
Look around, get specs and prices, look at a price that you'll be

Re: buying a laptop: was new on the list

Nickus de Vos <bigboy529@...>
 

It's a plesure, Tell me, what do you want to use the laptop for then
I'll recommend one because a i7 processor is only really nececery if
you want it for a specific reason like audio production, video
production or if you're a heavy gamer oh and if money is no option. If
you just want a laptop for general use then a i5 or even i3 would do
the job and it will be a lot cheeper.

Can't tell you what the advantage of jaws home adition is over
professional but on windows 7 I can tell you that the professional
versions make stuff like networking and security easyer. if I can give
you a quick run through. Windows 7 startup or whatever it's called is
a waist of time, home basic is better but for only a little more you
can get home premium which is a lot better, professional also doesn't
cost that much more than home premium and then ultimate is the top
package and quite expensive compared to the others. As a minimum I'll
go for home premium or professional, the only difference between
professional and ultimate is that ultimate comes with drive and file
incription which I honestly never used since having windows 7 and
ultimate also comes with different language packs which you can anyway
get from the internet as updates if you have the professional version.
As I said previously also check 32 or 64 bit versions, 32 bit can only
use 3 GB RAM so if you have more RAM than 3 GB or even plan to get
more in the future go 64 bit from the start.
With the core i7 laptops mentioned before I gathered you are prepaired
to spend a lot of money because the i7 laptops is currently the most
expensive and top of the range, usually with these laptops it will
come with a pre defined version of windows and I doubt if it will be
anything under professional 64 bit because havving a i7 processor and
32 bit windows will also be counter productive and a waist because you
won't even be able to use half of your processor power. If you are
anyway whilling to spend a lot on a laptop I would say just get jaws
pro as well.

I happen to be a big fan of Toshiba laptops, but in fact all laptops are
made by a few manufacturers and then branded, so it may not matter.

Full'size laptops including keypads are quite common nowadays. Simply
check
the description if ordering online or specify if dealing with a store.

If buying hands'on, it´s good to see what kinds of extra keys the laptop
has. Some have capacititave buttons, activated by touch, that turn wiFi
on
and off, mute, change volume, etc. If yours has them, you can put dots on
them and use them once you learn their order. It is wise to do this
because
otherwise you might inadvertently touch the WiFi button deactivating Wifi,
and not be good at touching the right button again to reactivate it.

To keep this on topic, I'm not aware of any problem you'll face when
buying
a laptop to use with JAWS 13. I don't think you can go wrong.

Subject: new on the list

Hello all,

I joined this list a few days ago, and am pleased to recognize a few names
from other lists and previous JFW lists.

I will be upgrading my Jaws sometime this year from version 8 to 13. I
feel
it will be almost like relearning everything, as so much has been added
since version 8.

As part of my upgrade, I will also be buying a new computer, and would
like
anyone's recommendations for the following 2 items.

1. I want to get a laptop preferrably with a keypad if such a thing
exists.
Otherwise, well differentiated keys, good battery life, and durable. A
full-sized laptop is fine.

2. I am also looking for a small netbook that will have more limited use.
I
want the netbook to be small and durable with a reasonably tactile
keyboard.
This device does not need to be as new, as I am willing to shop secondhand
for it.

As I know nothing about laptops and small computers, whether they be
netbooks, notebooks or ultra mini PCs, any experiences are welcome. Are
there things I should be aware of concerning JAWS when looking for laptops
or smaller PCs? E.g., video cards, onboard software that might be a
problem,
etc.?

Thanks.

Jean

Subject: About mainstream financial packages and the future

To be clear, I am not the only on the block with financial management
programs. Cash manager is a good one, and recently on the list you have seen
an announcement for PeachTree accounting complete. This is also another good
option. Whichever you choose has to be the right one for you. It is a matter
of preference and I am thrilled to bring some options to the table. I'm not
trying to make a huge profit from this. If I can get compensated a little,
that would make it worthwhile.
If you are really into accounting, perhaps PeachTree is the way to go. If
you are a beginner and need a solid program that works without scripts, try
Money Manager. Quickbooks is heavily used in the main stream in businesses
and being able to manage your own company or business is essential to
independence. Quicken is more of a personal finance management program.
These program scripts are not meant to be a solid solution, only a bridge
that can cross the gap until companies start to realize they need to work
with bigger organizations such as the NFB, AFB, and others and making this a
more accessible world.
I'm not competing with anyone, I am certainly making that clear. I just want
more options because when I first started on this path, I was shocked to
find out that a lot was certainly out of our reach. This is my calling and I
choose to stick this out and be of service to others.

John Martyn

I have got some testers all lined up and I will include you in the mix. We
are waiting on Intuit at the moment and working with the NFB for this to be
available.

I might as well announce it but Quickbooks and Quicken scripts are on
the way, however I am not releasing them as of yet.
They are still in testing and development.
The quickbooks scripts are towards the end of development and testing
but quicken is more of a challenge. Quicken uses a lot of graphics and
it takes time to find them all to label them my special way.
Quickbooks works wonderfully with 2011 and development for Quicken
2012 is going good so far.
Quickbooks 2012 is coming soon.
The NFB National Federation of the Blind is participating in this
particular project. I flew out to Baltimore and they were very
interested in this new development. I might be coming under fire for
even releasing this information, but I'm not scared. I have complete
faith that what I'm doing for the blind community is justified and
backed up legally.
Besides, wouldn't you all like the option to use such mainstream
software that could even give you more freedom?

Does anyone know if QuickBooks is accessible with jaws yet or if
scripts have been written for it
