Good afternoon folks.

I ran into another issue today, a friends computer, windows 10, latest jaws 2020, but, the braille edge won't connect.

I did a reinstall of jaws,

restarted the machine, but the edge stays in terminal mode.

when I connect or disconnect the device, I do hear a tone to tell me that the device is connected or disconnected.

Hi. A free version of Dictation Bridge is also available for JAWS.

Hartgen Consultancy has two solutions for using JAWS with Dragon. J-Dictate is for people who want to use Dragon for dictation into programs such as Word, Outlook, etc., who are comfortable or able to use their computer keyboard.

J-Say not only allows for voice dictation but it allows a user to completely control their computer with all commands, both for Windows as well as for JAWS. The programs from Hartgen Consultancy are specific to JAWS whereas Dictation Bridge has a separate addon for NVDA.

I am using the Braille Edge with Jaws 2020 latest update.

 

When you added the display to Jaws, did you check both BrialleEdge and HIMS Braille in the list of displays?

 

And make sure Braille Edge is set as the default?

 

That is what shows in my Jaws settings.

 

If so, push the reset button on the back of the Braille Edge.  That is the one on the back near the dot 2.

 

Put it in terminal mode.

 

Now, while it is plugged into the computer, reboot the computer.

When jaws comes up, it should work.

 

If not, you may have to experience the joys of HIMS non-support.

 

Or, try writing to Thomas Simpson thomas@...

 

Thomas is  the sales manager, but is often more helpful than their tech support.

 

Good luck,

Richard

Marty,

             One small word of warning.  MP3Tag (at least when I downloaded it in February) is defaulting for its metadata search to freedb, and it appears they've closed up shop.  I cannot find the information for logging into the metadata server at MusicBrainz, at least not yet.

              But, MusicBrainz, which is an open source project where all software is free as well, has its own metadata editor called Picard.  It looks to be accessible, and since it's automatically set up with MusicBrainz to begin with (though you may need to create your own account) it might end up being the better way to go.

Scratch that last question, as I had a temporary lapse.  Right on MP3Tag's main webpage it states, "Furthermore, it supports online database lookups from, e.g., Discogs, MusicBrainz or freedb, allowing you to automatically gather proper tags and download cover art for your music library."

Thanks for that confirmation that MP3Tag is accessible.  Given the style of its interface I thought it would be.

I have only used it to do limited metadata editing for a few tracks where fetching the information when ripping "burped" and left it unpopulated.  Do you happen to know if MP3Tag has a function where it does much like most media players do, and will attempt to fetch the metadata for all the tracks you are working on in a single folder?  I've never played with that, if it even exists, but if it does it's a much easier thing to try than hand editing, which is tedious, but sometimes necessary.

If the below info doesn’t help, you probably should write to support@...

 

This is from the Duxbury site:

Note: The Windows process below is normally specific to a particular USB port. You should choose a USB port which you will always use to connect your embosser. Before you add a "printer" as documented below, make sure you first close DBT. (You want to launch it after this step so that it will notice the new printer driver you just installed.)

You now need to "Add a Printer," which is done in the normal way in Windows. In particular, you should select "Local Printer," and specifically NOT ask Windows to detect the printer automatically.

You will then be asked to select a printer port. From the drop down list of ports, look for "USB### (Virtual Printer Port for USB)," where ### will be a USB port number. If more than one USB port appears in the list, and the newly purchased cable for this purpose was the last thing you connected to the computer's USB ports then choose the port with the highest number.

At the next dialog, you will be asked to select a printer. In this case, from the Manufacturer list select "Generic," and from Printers list select "Generic /Text Only" as shown below.

You will be asked to name your printer, and at this point, we suggest you enter a meaningful name by adding "(Brailler on USB Port)" - or the like - to the name suggested by Windows.

Eventually, the process will ask if you wish to print a test page. We suggest you answer "Yes". Provided you have selected the correct port, this test will emboss about two pages of test data. What is important is that you get the output, not the braille itself. The braille is likely to be untranslated.

You are now ready to set up your embosser inside DBT. The full instructions for configuring a new embosser are covered in Global: Embosser Setup. However, there is one helpful point to add to that discussion. In the General Tab, Output Options section of that dialog, select your newly installed embosser using the "Send to Printer" selection as shown below.

We suggest you test the installation with a short document to ensure that you have correctly configured your embosser

Under Word options, alt-f, then t; arrowe to proofing and tab once for autocorrect options dot dot dot. Enter on this. ctrl+tab to autoformat, and tab to bullets and numbering to uncheck it.

To get rid of bullets and numbering already on a page, press home to get to the beginning of the bulleted/numbered line and then backspace to make the character disappear. You can also select the whole document, press alt+h, then u for bullets or n for numbers, fine "none" in the resulting grid, and whack enter on that to remove all the bullets or numbers on a page.

OK. Now I finally got brave enough to get into Word and make some changes in the settings. Hopefully, I didn’t do too much damage. (smile). Thank you. And I am glad I made the changes in JAWS as well. I’m tentative when it comes to changing settings, and I had forgotten a lot that I used to know.
