Re: screen resolution

Richard Holloway
 

Just for the point of clarity with monitor size, it should be understood that the actual physical size of a monitor is not the issue. It is the resolution in pixels. If you make up a square with 10 dots in each direction spaced an inch apart as opposed to with half an inch spacing, the two squares are entirely different physical sizes (one is twice as tall and wide and 4 times the area) but they are the same size in pixels. If you're a braille reader and have ever run across the extra-large braille that is sometimes used to try and make it easier for people with limited finger sensitivity to read braille, it is like that in a way; same dot arrangement with different sized spacing.

So it is with monitors. Bigger often means higher resolution (closer pixel spacing and generally more pixels), but not always.

If you're dealing with CRT's (big, heavy old-style glass monitors), especially very old ones, as in early 90"s and back often only had one sync frequency and therefore one fixed resolution. Not to get to technical, but CRT's only have the image being redrawn at one point on the monitor at any given instant in time, so the image is drawn left to right, top to bottom, very quickly, and as you might guess, you have to get the timing of the information signal to the monitor timed just right to match up with the internal timing of the monitor's components, so this used to be a really big deal.

This became a hassle, so "multi-sync" monitors were developed that could sync on multiple timings, or frequencies. Still, sometimes a projection screen or large CRT is operated at a lower resolution and just blown up to look large on a screen, like to show a movie or a powerpoint presentation to a group, for example.

When you hear the term VGA, it can mean the connector style of a monitor, but it can also mean 640 x 480 pixel resolution. There are a number of similar terms-- VGA, CGA, EGA, SVGA, XGA (and there are many more). They all relate to screen resolutions, but the main point I am wanting to make is that just going to a larger or smaller monitor won't automatically change monitor resolutions at all (especially a moderate change like 16 to 17, or even 17, to 19, and when it does make a change, it may not change the way you'd guess.

Especially for older equipment, you need to check the specific monitor (and video card) you're dealing with to determine what resolutions will work. If newer JAWS doesn't care (as I have read) that's great, but if your JAWS needs a specific resolution, you'll want to confirm what it needs before you try and marry it to a particular computer setup. Generally speaking, the newer the gear, the less this will be an issue, and flat screens will usually support a wide variety of resolutions, but assuming things will have a particular resolution can cause problems.

The list I gave you are standard resolutions, not specific to JAWS users, and I haven't seen any documentation by FS on this issue since the days of CRT monitors, which is what I still have, by the way.

Thank you.

Hey Bill,

Thanks for the excellent list.

Are those generic recommendations (including sighted users), or are they specific to people using JAWS?

I've seen manufacturers provide monitor drivers that run at "preferred" resolutions (laptop screen drivers can be particularly aggressive in insisting on running at their "native" optimal resolution).

It may just be "lore" in the accessible tech community, but I heard a consultant say that if one is having problems with JAWS, that changing to a "standard" monitor resolution, or even using a monitor that has its "native" resolution at 1280x1024 is "better".

Do you know if FS has any useful documentation on this issue?

It depends on the size of your monitor. Here are some common ones.

Hello,
If you Google assistive technology jobs you come up with lots of jobs.

I would probably look for training before you start teaching people
though.
That way you can talk to other professionals, see what the different jobs
are and see if that is something you really would like to do.
If I were you I'd get my hands on every piece of technology I could so
you
can know what's out there. For some reason TVIs and much of the blind
community uses Pack mates or Braille Notes so those are kind of a cliché.
I
would learn about all the other note takers and software's so you can
show
people that the minority software is often much better than the heavily
advertised devices.

As for Jaws Tandem, explore the menu and see what pops up. It's under
Utility's in the menu bar. It tells you everything. But basically you get
a
code from the tandem center and tell your target the code so they can
write
it into the box that allows access to their computer.

Hi.
Steph has a point. If you know something has nothing to do with a list, then why post it? Also, I'm sure that if you googled something about what you were asking about on this list, you could get other results.
Sorry if I'm coming off as a real dick, but I've seen so many OT's on this and other lists. Again, google's great.
Have a great day.

Re: screen resolution

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

The list I gave you are standard resolutions, not specific to JAWS users, and I haven't seen any documentation by FS on this issue since the days of CRT monitors, which is what I still have, by the way.

Thank you.

Hey Bill,

Thanks for the excellent list.

Are those generic recommendations (including sighted users), or are they specific to people using JAWS?

I've seen manufacturers provide monitor drivers that run at "preferred" resolutions (laptop screen drivers can be particularly aggressive in insisting on running at their "native" optimal resolution).

It may just be "lore" in the accessible tech community, but I heard a consultant say that if one is having problems with JAWS, that changing to a "standard" monitor resolution, or even using a monitor that has its "native" resolution at 1280x1024 is "better".

Do you know if FS has any useful documentation on this issue?

Two questions 1. What does guide dogs have to do with a Jaws for

know something is "Off Topic" for this list why exactly did you post
it? That's kind of like knowing that something is bad for you and can
make you sick and doing/ eating it anyway.

Hello,
If you Google assistive technology jobs you come up with lots of jobs.
https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Assistive+Technology+Jobs+&oq=Assistiv
e+Technology+Jobs+&aq=f&aqi=g4g-v6&aql=&gs_sm=3&gs_upl=18963l19565l0l22661l2
l2l0l0l0l0l118l210l1.1l2l0

I would probably look for training before you start teaching people though.
That way you can talk to other professionals, see what the different jobs
are and see if that is something you really would like to do.
If I were you I'd get my hands on every piece of technology I could so you
can know what's out there. For some reason TVIs and much of the blind
community uses Pack mates or Braille Notes so those are kind of a cliché. I
would learn about all the other note takers and software's so you can show
people that the minority software is often much better than the heavily
advertised devices.

As for Jaws Tandem, explore the menu and see what pops up. It's under
Utility's in the menu bar. It tells you everything. But basically you get a
code from the tandem center and tell your target the code so they can write
it into the box that allows access to their computer.
Thanks,

there many jobs with assistive technology, and whhat jobs are there in

If you wanted to work for a government agency, school board, or

from state to state, country to country, and maybe employer to
employer. so, do some research.

Still, there's nothing stopping anybody here from tutoring people
privately, over Skype, or using something like Jaws Tandom.

Good Day: You can make a System Restore using Jaws. Go to the start menu
and arrow to all programs and press the enter key. After you are in all
programs arrow until you find accessories and press enter. The next step is
to arrow or press the letter s untill you come to system and press the enter
key again. After you are in the system option arrow to system restore or
restore depending upon which Windows System you are using and press the
enter key. After you are at the System Restore you will have options as to
how far back you wish to restore your computer.
If your problem just started I'd probably pick the first option. Once you
have started the computer through this process you will not be able to use
it for sometime until it has completely run through it's acctions. Make
sure you do not turn the computer off until it is complete or it will back
where it is right now. Good luck.

right now when I open the system restore it defaults to "Undo system

Re: volume

Dondi
 

Hi David,

Do you know how I can get sndvol as a shortcut on my start menu? I can
launch sndvol from start menu search edit box but it never appears as a
shortcut on the start menu. I'm using Windows 7.

Hi Holger,
to pin the volume mixer to the taskbar:
1. open the start menu, and type sndvol.
2. press the application key to open the context menu of the selected
shortcut of sndvol on the start menu 3. choose pin to taskbar from the menu.

My problems are that if I try running at the screen's native

normal resolutions the text is extracted fine. With older versions
of jaws I had even worse issues trying to run at higher resolutions,
massive memory leaks mainly but that does appear to have been
resolved.

Hey Bill,

Thanks for the excellent list.

Are those generic recommendations (including sighted users), or are they
specific to people using JAWS?

I've seen manufacturers provide monitor drivers that run at "preferred"
resolutions (laptop screen drivers can be particularly aggressive in
insisting on running at their "native" optimal resolution).

It may just be "lore" in the accessible tech community, but I heard a
consultant say that if one is having problems with JAWS, that changing to
a
"standard" monitor resolution, or even using a monitor that has its
"native"
resolution at 1280x1024 is "better".

Do you know if FS has any useful documentation on this issue?

It depends on the size of your monitor. Here are some common ones.

Monitor size

I guess Shane Davidson had his wings clipped, or figures he cowed us

Here we go again with the torrent of off-topic messages. Are the moderators
absent again? In case some list members don't know, this is a list for the
discussion of JAWS-related issues. Not guide dogs. Not jobs. Just JAWS.
The nonsense that's tolerated on this list is unbelievable.

Hello,
If you Google assistive technology jobs you come up with lots of jobs.
https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Assistive+Technology+Jobs+&oq=Assistiv
e+Technology+Jobs+&aq=f&aqi=g4g-v6&aql=&gs_sm=3&gs_upl=18963l19565l0l22661l2
l2l0l0l0l0l118l210l1.1l2l0

I would probably look for training before you start teaching people though.
That way you can talk to other professionals, see what the different jobs
are and see if that is something you really would like to do.
If I were you I'd get my hands on every piece of technology I could so you
can know what's out there. For some reason TVIs and much of the blind
community uses Pack mates or Braille Notes so those are kind of a cliché. I
would learn about all the other note takers and software's so you can show
people that the minority software is often much better than the heavily
advertised devices.

As for Jaws Tandem, explore the menu and see what pops up. It's under
Utility's in the menu bar. It tells you everything. But basically you get a
code from the tandem center and tell your target the code so they can write
it into the box that allows access to their computer.
Thanks,

How do you use Jaws Tandum? How does Jaws Tandum work? I am not looking to
tutor people but I was writing to find out what jobs there would be as a
Jaws tester and to learn more about the assistive technology field. Are
there many jobs with assistive technology, and whhat jobs are there in
assistive technology?

Albert, you can probably tutor people privately, set your own fees etc.
If you wanted to work for a government agency, school board, or
similar employer, you probably need qualifications as a trainer,
instructor, etc. What those qualifications would be probably varies
from state to state, country to country, and maybe employer to
employer. so, do some research.

Still, there's nothing stopping anybody here from tutoring people
privately, over Skype, or using something like Jaws Tandom.
