Position the mouse pointer on the item you wish clicked, hold down the CTRL key and press the JAWS Left Mouse Button.

You may be able to get the same result simply by pressing the application key.

Technically if you need to exactly replicate the keystroke I think you need to invoke the Jaws cursor and route jaws to the pc  cursor – insert plus numpad minus in desktop layout and then hold down the control key and press  numpad slash  once to invoke a   virtual mouse click.

I would try bringing up the context menu with the application key first though as I find this unpredictable in results.

This can be annoying Sometimes

  1. Turning virtual cursor off – jawskey plus Z and then tabbing to the element and pressing space or enter will work.
  2. Switching browsers. Try the same page in Internet Explorer of a Chrome based browser if using Firefox or vice versa.

moderated Problems with the clipboard in jaws 19

Rahul Bajaj
 

Hi, all,

I extensively use the insert+windows+c command to append text to the clipboard. I have two questions about this functionality offered by JAWS:
1. I sometimes find that text which I append to the clipboard actually does not get appended. At first, I thought I was imagining this, but now it has happened enough times that I know the problem is for real. It happened twice today. I appended multiple article titles to the clipboard. But only one showed up when I pasted the clipboard text.
2. Often, the same content gets added to the clipboard several times. So when I paste the content, the same chunk of text gets pasted multiple times. A quick fix has been to use insert+space+c before pasting. This helps me determine what the clipboard precisely contains. Any ideas?

Hi,
Years ago there was a product called a Plustek Opticbook 3600 book edge scanner. It’s claim to fame was a scanner bed which extended all the way to its front edge, thus allowing you to place the book’s binding right on the edge and lay pages completely flat. You get none of the typical “shadowing” associated with lying a book face-down and trying to get the very inside edges of the pages near the binding to scan accurately. It was a great concept.

Unfortunately I don’t think that product is still around.

This looks like the one you were looking for. Spelled slightly differently in that OpticBook is written as one word and has a c rather than a k in the Optic part of the name.
There is another source I found below this one. I have no personal knowledge of either one of these.

This one is another I found searching for the Reading Edge which was the state of the art edge scanner over 30 years ago.

Hello, the frame viewer should work for this.

You designate a part of the screen using coordinates that you define using the Jaws cursor, and you may specify whether you wish to assign a hotkey to that part of the screen or whether you want that portion of the screen to read automatically when the screen changes.

Press JawsKey F2 and you can get to frame viewer from there.

I don’t think skim reading is the answer, but here is a more detailed explanation of what the program does.

 

I have an html document open, I hit a hotkey, f6 in this case, and it shows the resulting errors in a window toward the bottom of the screen.

That text is in Black on Honeydew.

 

Is there a way to set a hotkey to read only text in that color combo on the screen, that will still allow me to do the normal editing in the areas needing fixing?

 

Or, to set a window around that portion of the screen when I can get sighted help to do that?

 

I could have done this in my sleep with Window-eyes, but since I am committed to do this with Jaws, I could use some help.

 

Like Leo had said in a previous question, if someone knows and could explain it as if they were explaining it to a 7-year old, that would be appreciated.

  1. Turn on the Jaws cursor  with numpad minus
  2. Press alt delete when you want the co-ordinates announced.
  3. For  a more convenient reference use the Jaws speech history – insert space and then H to have a list of all Jaws announcements  that you can copy and paste including the coordinates announcement.

OK, thanks Jim, I have gotten a frame basically done but for one vital piece.

How do I get the Jaws cursor coordinates?

I probably should know this, but I don’t.

I really just need to know how far down the screen I am when I find the start with the jaws cursor.  At least, I think that is what I need…

Hello, the frame viewer should work for this.

You designate a part of the screen using coordinates that you define using the Jaws cursor, and you may specify whether you wish to assign a hotkey to that part of the screen or whether you want that portion of the screen to read automatically when the screen changes.

Press JawsKey F2 and you can get to frame viewer from there.

Thanks.

I don’t think skim reading is the answer, but here is a more detailed explanation of what the program does.

 

I have an html document open, I hit a hotkey, f6 in this case, and it shows the resulting errors in a window toward the bottom of the screen.

That text is in Black on Honeydew.

 

Is there a way to set a hotkey to read only text in that color combo on the screen, that will still allow me to do the normal editing in the areas needing fixing?

 

Or, to set a window around that portion of the screen when I can get sighted help to do that?

 

I could have done this in my sleep with Window-eyes, but since I am committed to do this with Jaws, I could use some help.

 

Like Leo had said in a previous question, if someone knows and could explain it as if they were explaining it to a 7-year old, that would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Richard

It sounds like you’re trying to do something with skim reading.

Hello all,

I have a program, CSS HTML Validator, that shows errors in the font colors, black on honeydew.

 

Is there a way to set up a hotkey that I could press and just hear the section of the screen that is Black on Honeydew, but could still read the rest normally?

 

I used to do this with Window-eyes quite easily, but cannot wrap my head around how to do this with Jaws.

 

I think it shows it in a section on the lower portion of the screen.

 

Thanks,

 

 

Richard
