Hello. I have the same setup at home and work; PC, Windows 10, and
JAWS17. I have HSC scripts attached to a PC game at home. How do I
copy the scripts at home and add them at work, for said game? On the
HSC site, he refers to a JAWS personel settings folder, I cannot find
any such folder.

Thanks,

Yes, that will work for sure, once the USB dongle is paired you can plug it into any computer or device and it will connect to the keyboard.

Let me see if I’m following you here.

 

Currently, I use the USB dongle for my older Windows 7 PC, which is unable to  pair with the keyboard via bluetooth.  That dongle is interfaced with button 1 on the Logitec.

 

So, are you saying that I could just take the dongle out of the USB port on the Win 7 machine, and transfer it to the Polaris, so that when I hit the first button on the keyboard, it connects with the polaris?

 

That’s a very interesting idea that I’ll have to try!

 

That way, I could use the remaining empty slot on the keyboard for a bluetooth connection to my iPhone 8.

I had an out-of-the-box thought this morning.

Does the Polaris have a usb port for a qwerty keyboard?

If so, try using the USB dongle on the Polaris.

That way you simply have to swap the dongle rather than dealing with the switches.

Let me know if that works.

I think 3 devices is all you can do including the Dongle, i.e. you can do 3 Bluetooth devices or use the Dongle and then do 2 more devices via Bluetooth.

I have never found a separate button for the USB dongle, it is my understanding it is whichever of the easy switch keys you use.

I’m Sure Sieghard will answer, but I think you have answered your own question.

The dongle is using one of the 3 switches, so to pair with a 4th device, you would have to turn Bluetooth off on one device, pair the 4th device to its slot, and then you would have to be sure to turn Bluetooth off on the 4th device and back on the third device before being able to connect again.

 

The only reason I asked about the button for the dongle is that the Logitech H800 headpones have a switch with a Bluetooth position and a different position for the USB dongle, allowing easy switching between two devices.

 

Personally, while I know sometimes having a qwerty keyboard connected to a braille note taker is handy; I’d prioritize the iPhone over the Polaris.

But, that is just me.

 

The Logitech K780 sounds like a keyboard I should be recommending  to my clients.

Right now, I have the dongle connection for the Windows 7 PC set on the first button—button 1.

 

If there is a separate button for the dongle connection, I would think it should be easy to switch to it, but am not sure.

 

Will wait to see what others suggest.

Sieghard is obviously the authority on this, but if you have to use one of the switch keys f1, f2, or f3, to connect to the Windows 7 machine, then you are stuck with 3 devices only.

If there is a separate button for the Dongle connection, then you should be able to follow the standard Bluetooth pairing steps to connect to the 4th device with the remaining f key.

Subject: Another Logitec K780 Question

 

Hello, again, everyone.

 

So far, I have successfully paired my new Logitec K780 bluetooth keyboard to my two office computers.  I had to use the USB dongle to pair my older Windows 7 machine, but was able to do a bluetooth pairing for my newer Windows 10 computer.  I also plan to pair the keyboard with my Polaris Braille note-taker.

 

Once the Polaris pairing is done, this will mean that I have interfaced the keyboard with three devices so far.

 

I believe I read that if you use the dongle for one device, you can theoretically pair the keyboard with four devices.

 

Is this true?

 

If so, how can it be done, because I think there are only three device-selection buttons on the K780.

 

If I can pair to a fourth device, I’d like to try the keyboard with my IPhone 8.

 

In closing, I want to thank everyone for all of your patience as I sort things out here with the K780 keyboard.  I realize that the thread might have been slightly off topic, so your tolerance is very much appreciated.

New post on Freedom Scientific Blog
 
Learn More, Do more, New Features in JAWS: The JAWS Scan Cursor
Elizabeth Whitaker
December 3, 2019
 
Over the next few weeks, we want to highlight some of the new features in the recently released 2020 updates to JAWS and Fusion. For our first post, we
want to briefly cover some changes to the existing JAWS and Invisible Cursors which help improve access to many of the universal applications found in
Windows 10. These types of apps, also known as Universal Windows Platform apps, are typically obtained through the Microsoft Store and can run on any Windows
device from a small hand-held tablet computer to a full desktop PC.
 
Background
 
For years, JAWS has provided the ability for users to quickly review text on the screen without changing the system focus. For instance, if you need to
access information in a dialog box that is not accessible using TAB or SHIFT+TAB, you could press NUM PAD MINUS or NUM PAD MINUS twice quickly to activate
the JAWS or Invisible Cursor and then use the ARROW keys and other standard reading commands to move around the screen while the system focus remained
on the current control. The primary difference between the JAWS and Invisible Cursors is that the mouse pointer follows along with the JAWS Cursor so you
can click items using the NUM PAD SLASH or NUM PAD STAR commands.
 
In order to access screen content with the JAWS and Invisible Cursors, we use a technology called the Off-Screen Model (OSM). However, in the last few
years, an increasing number of applications are now using newer technologies such as User Interface Automation (UIA) to present screen content which made
the JAWS and Invisible Cursor useless in these situations. When activating these cursors in applications like the Calculator, Weather, or most apps from
the Microsoft Store, you would only hear “blank” when attempting to review the screen.
 
The JAWS and Invisible Scan Cursors
 
JAWS 2020 now detects when focus is in an application where the OSM is not supported and will automatically use the new JAWS or Invisible Scan Cursor in
these situations. You will use the same navigation commands as you would with the traditional JAWS or Invisible cursors.
 
For example, if you press NUM PAD MINUS in the Weather app so you can review a forecast, you will now hear JAWS announce “JAWS Scan Cursor” as this is
an app that does not support the OSM. Similarly, if you press NUM PAD Minus twice quickly, you will hear JAWS announce, “Invisible Scan Cursor.” You can
then use the same commands you always have to review text with the difference being that you are now navigating through the UIA elements of the app.
 
For instance:
 
list of 5 items
◦ LEFT  or RIGHT ARROW  moves by character through the text of the current element.
◦ CTRL+LEFT  or CTRL+RIGHT ARROW  moves by word.
◦ UP  or DOWN ARROW  moves to the previous or next element or line of text.
◦ HOME  or END  moves to the beginning or end of the current element.
◦ CTRL+HOME  or CTRL+END  moves to the first or last element on the screen.
list end
 
You can still use JAWS commands such as INSERT+UP ARROW to read the current element or line of text as well as CTRL+F to search for text currently visible
on the screen. When using the JAWS Scan Cursor, the mouse pointer follows along as you navigate so you can still press NUM PAD SLASH or NUM PAD STAR to
perform a left or right click.
 
While the JAWS and Invisible Scan Cursors work in many places, we are continuing to improve this functionality in more areas. Look out for improvements
in future 2020 updates.

I use the K480 a lot with my iPhone.
It makes a huge difference which pairing button you use because the non-letter keys won't map correctly if you use the wrong one
Of the two pairing buttons, the one on the left is for Android/Windows.
The one on the right, is for iOS/Mac.
HTH,

Here is what I believe will work.

1. Move to the address bar with ctrl-L or alt-D.

2. Look for something like the site information button. You will either
need to tab or shift-tab from the address bar but it should be fairly
close to the address bar.

3. Once you're on this button press space. Do the options for
remembering passwords come up at that point?

I think this is one that I use once in a while, the one with a dial.
Mine has a slot in the back for a tablet.
I like it, but it is smaller than I prefer.
The Logitech I use all the time is a full sized keyboard, just like any desktop one, only it has a lot of extra buttons that I don't use, one turns off the F-keys, but there is a volume rocker that has been handy.
I don't know the model of this one, it is either RF or IR.

The 480 is easier than the 780. There is a dial and no dongle. It is a very simple keyboard. I wore one out and just replaced mine with a 780 because I wanted a numeric keypad. Even now I'm questioning the wisdom of the purchase because the 480 was so portable. I use it on my iPad, iPhone and may use it on my fire TV if possible. I guess the option to use it on my Lenovo will be nice. Since I have a Corsair USB on it now. It will be nice to have the option if I ever want it.
