moderated facebook messaging client

Hey guys,

Do any of you guys use any sort of messaging client for facebook that
works with jaws?
I use to use a program called miranda, however facebook doesn't seem
to support a lot of 3rd party apps now. Anyone have any ideas? This
was really handy to have.

Cheers,

Jed

Hi!

 

I experimented with pressing JAWSKey+Tab.  Now, JAWS says “normal” all the time.  How do I undo or stop this?

 

Thanks,

Hi Glenn,
 
Yeah, they changed the coding in J17 and in version J17 the import / export option was not even in the Jaws context menu.  I think the import / export utility came back in the J18 version.

Hi Jerry,
 
No, you can leave the other Jaws versions as they are, but you won't be able to import your settings from Jaws 15 / 16 into J2019.  They've changed the way newer versions of Jaws is coded written, so you'll have to set up this newer version from scratch.

I am considering downloading Jaws 2019 on my Windows 7 computer with Jaws version 16. I have both Jaws 15 & 16 versions on my hard drive. Do I have to do anything so I can keep my settings, scripts, and procedures that I have been using with Jaws 16. Do I need to keep or delete the Jaws 15 & 16 folders on my hard drive. Thank you for your help with this issue.

Hi,


At work we use Bitlocker too.

It starts before the login-screen appears.

I have to type my pincode with blind-typing but it works for me.


Before that we have used RSA Tokens and that is more a challenge.


Gr,


Peter.

Yes, as long as it doesn’t prompt for a password while loading the operating system, which it shouldn’t if your machine has Trusted Platform Module (TPM) hardware. If there’s no TPM, I’m not sure what BitLocker does – it may ask for a password, and if so, this would probably happen before JAWS starts.

 

I’ve used it successfully with JAWS on laptops that have TPM modules.

Jerry,
You can go to utilities in the Jaws main window which is in options, and when you open that up, you can up arrow to import and export and you can export your settings to be imported into the newer Jaws.

Microsoft Edge works extremely well as long as you download the Beta version which will replace the Edge version which is part of Windows 10 at some point in the not too distant future.

It will install independently from Edge which is part of Windows 10, but this new version of Edge is Chromium based just as Google Chrome is, there is an extension store, but you can also enable Google Chrome extensions and use any of the extensions from the Google Chrome extension store.

In addition, it is best to have more than one browser.
I have found that Chrome and Firefox don't work as well as Internet Explorer
for most things on the Nebraska workforce site,, but Firefox works best once
a week for me when I'm entering my job contacts for my unemployment payment.
Trial and error is the only way to know which tool works best for each job,
and unfortunately we all need to know at least the basics of web browsing to
know how to use any one of the tools.
That is like using quick navigation keys for example, and how to use a combo
box and the like will help you to decide whether the tool is going to work
as well as another.

John,
Getting the Google Chrome browser will give you the latest version and it
will work best with the latest version/build of JAWS 2019.

You will find better results if you are just waiting for JAWS 2020's final
release. JAWS 2020 is in phase 2 of Public Beta Testing by all JAWS users.
The 2020 final will be available soon.

You should also make sure you are update with all your Microsoft updates.

I have Omnipage V19.1, which I’m confident has been superseded. It works well enough with JAWS. I think photocopy would be dependent on your scanner and printer.

Hi,

Does anyone know if the current version of OmniPage  Ultimateworks well with Jaws?

 

Also, does OmniPage have a photo copy utility builtin?

 

I have been informed that it is possible to purchase recycled licences, similar to that of Microsoft Office, on Ebay for just a few dollars but it seems there is no support from Nuance or any future updates.

Hi Gezim,

 

Yes, I think either will work. You can turn spell checking off in your Word document settings, in which case no errors will appear on screen for JAWS to report, or you can change JAWS settings so that it doesn't report the visible errors.

 

Whichever you choose, you might want to toggle the setting off while you have a document containing both Albanian and English, and then on again when you have just the English, in order to spell check your translation.

 

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Steve,

 

Thank you for your prompt response.

 

I work with Word documents with text in Albanian language, which I translate into English. So, I hear ‘spelling error’ before every single word, and you can imagine how annoying and how time-consuming it is! After translating a phrase or sentence, I delete the original, so that only English text remains, and then it does not say ‘spelling error’ any more.

 

Do you think your suggestions will work for me?

 

Best regards,

Gezim

Hi Gezim,

 

Two things I can suggest. First is to check that the language being checked is the language you're using. If you're using Word 2016 or above, press Alt + Q and type language. DownArrow once to Language, then RightArrow into a submenu. There are two options in it; the first is for the current document only and the second is the default language used to create documents. You will want to check them both.

 

If you're using an earlier version of Word, to get the default language you can do Alt, F, T. DownArrow to Language and then Tab to the options.

 

To get to the document settings with an earlier version of Word, press Alt, R, U, L.

 

The other thing to check is your spelling options. To do this, go into the Settings Center with JAWSKey + 6, then Tab once and DownArrow to text processing, RightArrow to open it and DownArrow to Proofing. RightArrow to open that and then DownArrow through the options, changing them to suit you.

 

Hope that helps,

Steve

Hi all,

 

At my workplace, yesterday they installed JAWS 2019 for me, but instead of making me happy, it made my work far slower and it was nerve-breaking. That is because while navigating word documents, JAWS kept saying ‘spelling error’ all the time. Is there a way to stop that?

 

Looking forward to your instructions.
