As far as I know this is not possible through one sound card audio
settings although there may be mixer software that I am not aware of.
When I did some work for the RNIB years ago to solve this they provided a
hardware kit, a splitter box which forced Jaws through one channel and
allowed you to hear another sound input such as a telephone line through
the other channel of a headset/microphone setup. This was quite efficient
and I believe that this kit can still be purchased.
Jaws can be used with multiple sound cards, perhaps a USB as well as an on
board sound card. In theory you could have 2 sound cards and using a
splitter box force Jaws output into one channel and another card through the
secondary channel with such a kit. Of course As a much cheaper Heath
Robinson solution is to simply use 2 sets of tin ear earphones coming from 2
installed sound cards and simply put one earphone from each card in each ear
to hear the output from both cards at once.

Hello all,

I was wondering if there is a way to make Jaws only send output to the
right or left audio channel? If not jaws, can this be done to one of the
synthesizers that come with Jaws?

No, Word just opens the document, but generally does it very well. I would wonder if it handles the line numbers better than Adobe, but I don't have a document of this sort to test.

I don't think you'd get any choice for reading order if you sent the
document to word. Probably the best choice for this situation would be
to use k1000 to recognize the pdf using the omnipage engine with column
identification disabled.

moderated Re: Reading PDF Documents with Line Numbers

 

Kelby,

I'm doubtful there is anything JAWS can do to make your document more
readable. It sounds as if whoever created the document was using Microsoft
Word to number the lines and when they saved it as a PDF file, the line
numbers were treated as a separate object from the text and placed at the
beginning of the created PDF instead of left next to their corresponding
text lines. I think you should talk to the creator of the documents and ask
them to try printing as PDF instead of saving or exporting as PDF to see if
that creates the desired results.

I’m not Mike, needless to say, but your post made me curious. I confirmed that with Word 2016, I have the same experience using shift-control-g. that is, when performing no other operation on a document, after using that command I need to save changes in order to close the document.

 

My only thought is that the same thing happens when the only operation I perform on a Word document is to copy some text. I haven’t changed it at all, and yet here to,, I must save changes in order to close the document.

 

In either case, whatever change the program perceives has occurred, I think you can be confident it isn’t one that affects the text or format in any way.

I just tried it on an existing Word document and it worked with lots of info, but when I tried to exit my document, JAWS asked me if I wanted to save changes.  Other than opening the existing document and using Control, Shift and the letter G, I did not change my original document.  Are the Control, Shift and the letter G adding something to my document?  I experimented with the same document and used Insert and the down arrow keys and JAWS did not tell me if I wanted to save the document.  It just exited my document.  Am I doing something wrong when I open up my document and using your commands?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Oh, by the way, I am using JAWS 15, Windows 7 and Word 2010.

Until recently, pressing Jaws key 3 has told me the number of words in my MS
Word document. It now tells me the number of characters and which line I am
on but I am having to press function key 6 in order to get a word count. Is
there a way I can amend this?

I found a keystroke jaws+alt+s where I can change the scheme to read the
colors -- I don't know why it did not work when I tried to do it from the
settings center, but it seems to work fairly well, only problem is that Jaws
goes silent sometimes for 15-20 seconds after I hit jaws-to-pc hot key --
using Chrome.

Thanks for everyones suggestion, I hope this works.

It is much, much easier to use the search function (CTRL+E) and enter the search criteria for all the files you want, then Select All, then delete.

So, once you're in the folder, say you want to delete all PDF files in the folder.  Hit CTRL+E then type *.pdf in the search box then hit enter.  The search will return only files in that folder that are PDF files.  Hit CTRL+A to select all, then hit the DEL key.  You're done.

Of course, the search criteria can be anything that's appropriate, so if you wanted only PDF files that start with, say, Nov, then type Nov*.pdf in the search box and hit enter.  You can use any extension and you can combine things with OR if you want, say all JPG files OR PDF files, that would be *.jpg OR *.PDF, and you'll only get files with one of those two extensions back.

Hand gathering is far more error prone.

Al,

 

I’m not Mike, needless to say, but your post made me curious. I confirmed that with Word 2016, I have the same experience using shift-control-g. that is, when performing no other operation on a document, after using that command I need to save changes in order to close the document.

 

My only thought is that the same thing happens when the only operation I perform on a Word document is to copy some text. I haven’t changed it at all, and yet here to,, I must save changes in order to close the document.

 

In either case, whatever change the program perceives has occurred, I think you can be confident it isn’t one that affects the text or format in any way.

Hi Mike,

 

Thank you very much for those GREAT key strokes.  For years I’ve been using the insert and the down arrow keys and I like this new system.    

 

I just tried it on an existing Word document and it worked with lots of info, but when I tried to exit my document, JAWS asked me if I wanted to save changes.  Other than opening the existing document and using Control, Shift and the letter G, I did not change my original document.  Are the Control, Shift and the letter G adding something to my document?  I experimented with the same document and used Insert and the down arrow keys and JAWS did not tell me if I wanted to save the document.  It just exited my document.  Am I doing something wrong when I open up my document and using your commands?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Oh, by the way, I am using JAWS 15, Windows 7 and Word 2010.

FYI, yes JAWS key+pagedown/3 still usually works with Word 2016. However,
sometimes it fails, in which case Mike B's instructions explain how to

I'm running Word 2010 on a Windows 7 computer and I use JAWS key plus

In my work, I frequently have to read transcripts of proceeding where each

frequently all of the line numbers will be at the top of the page and I have
to keep arrowing down to get to the text. I know this is a unique problem,
but is there anything JAWS can do that will help with this? Right now it
takes me longer to read these documents than it should.

Apparently, I'm not alone in having the "Current Folder" option to limit search results fail to work.  A very recent topic on answers.microsoft.com:
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/file-explorer-search-current-folder-option-doesnt/cbef261b-0ab0-47d9-a784-1598a550866b

Checking Feedback Hub there are currently three items open that turn up if you use "current folder" as your search phrase, and all have been open for months and note the issue is in Build 18363.  I've just added a comment to all three of them that this is still going on as of today's date.

Well, it also depends on how you have search itself configured.  It is important to make sure that your default is "Current Folder" rather than All Subfolders, or to switch to only search in Current Folder rather than All Subfolders.

The current default behavior is "All Subfolders."   I am having a huge problem figuring out how to either reconfigure this permanently or even to get the search to limit itself only to "Current Folder" with keyboard shortcuts.   I can get to "Current Folder" via ALT+JS,F after having run the search, but it doesn't change the results.  I can only get the results to change sometimes via "point and click" application of that ribbon control item, too.

This used to be a simple matter to reset default search behavior, as this question from 2017 on https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-files/windows-10-explorer-search-default-current-folder/fbd72e0c-880e-453d-9e85-9228767fa9de notes:

hey folks,

 

is there a way to set the default preference for the explorer search from "all subfolders" to "current folder"?

 

In Win7 there was an option in the "folder and search options" and in Win8 there was a RegKey "SearchSubFolders" under Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Search\Preferences.

 

In Win10 the option is not available and the RegKey has no effect.

 

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards,

Philipp

I'll keep looking, but so far getting a consistent "Current Folder" only result is just not happening at the moment, and I've always been able to get that to work before (and usually set that as my default, as it's the exception where I want all subfolders searched).

Depending on how many levels deep the folder is.
using the command prompt, and then like the good old DOS days, do CD\foldername, and again the backslash, next folder until your crompt shows c:\ followed by the full path.
Then type del *.mp3
and they will all be deleted just in that folder.
Then type exit and hit enter to get out of the command prompt.
I'mwriting this on an iPhone with braille input, so hopefully that made sense.
If not, I can rewrite it on my computer in the morning.

Of course, the search criteria can be anything that's appropriate, so if you wanted only PDF files that start with, say, Nov, then type Nov*.pdf in the search box and hit enter.  You can use any extension and you can combine things with OR if you want, say all JPG files OR PDF files, that would be *.jpg OR *.PDF, and you'll only get files with one of those two extensions back.

Hand gathering is far more error prone.

moderated Re: in win10 how do you get to the command prompt?

 

Hank,

         You can hit the Windows Key, immediately type cmd, then hit Enter.  Or you can hit Windows Key+R, enter cmd in Open text box, then hit Enter.  Or, you can go to the Windows Search box and enter either the word command or just cmd, and hit enter.

          Any of the above will instantly open a Command Prompt window where you will be sitting in your HOME folder, typically C:\Users\{insert appropriate acct here} and you will have focus just after the command prompt itself.

moderated Re: in win10 in a folder how do you tell Win10 to delete only all the files that have a same particular extension but not the other files in that folder that have different extensions?

moderated Video Chatting on Facebook Using JAWS

Rick Miller
 

Anyone:

 

I looked up the instructions about how to video chat with a friend on Facebook.  The first thing it says is “Click in the upper right of the screen.”  Is there any way using JAWS that you can video chat with someone?
