This printer only has a USB  connection and no USB connector on my router. I am going to follow your instruction above now and see if I have any luck. Thanks

Also, you will need to go to the printer settings on the computer it is connected to and set it as a shared printer, or you can connect the printer to your router.
That is the best way.

For a JAWS repair, you need the file for the version and release that you’re running. Assuming you have it, press enter on it. After a few moments, JAWS will indicate it’s ready to perform the repair. Press enter and sit back. When the repair is done, you’ll probably have to reboot.

 

If you don’t have that file, you’ll need to obtain it from the FS website. Or else download the file with the latest release of the version you‘re running, install it, and then do a repair from that file.

 

Note. A JAWS repair always takes at least a few minutes. It can take longer. You’ll be given percentage progress reports. Occasionally, it will come to an end only to announce that the operation was unsuccessful. Typically, running the repair a second time leads to positive results.

 

A Microsoft Office repair is similar, except you don’t need the file. In this case, start typing “programs” into your Windows search field. Probably the first item that comes up will be “Add or remove programs.” Press enter. Press the letter m until you land on Microsoft Office. Here, instead of pressing enter, press the applications key and arrow up or down to “change.” Press enter. The “repair” option will appear and you’ll be asked to confirm. There’ll be an announcement when the repair is complete, and you’ll be told to reboot.

Barbara,

 

I haven’t had this experience with Word or Outlook 2016. I have noticed that in Outlook only, spell-check will seem to stop suddenly. However, if I tab once, the dialog for the next spelling suggestion appears, telling me that JAWS simply hasn’t kept up with the spell-checker.

 

I wonder if you’ve tried a JAWS repair. If you’re unfamiliar with this procedure, please post again. It’s easy. Actually, so is a Microsoft Office repair. I’ve done both when one or the other starts misbehaving, sometimes with good results.

I have 2 computers one has Office 2016 and the second has Office 2013.  I mostly use Word and outlook.  When I use the spell check , most, but not all the time the spell check dialogue is sluggish. 

 

I have the latest version of JAWS 2020 installed.  I have windows 10 on both computers.

 

This occurs in both Office programs I mentioned earlier.  Alt-tab away from the window and returning back does not solve anything.  Sometimes if I close JAWS and launch it again, it does help.  It does not seem to matter if I have other programs open as well or not.  Any ideas on how to resolve this?

You should be able to share it so long as the other computers are connected on the same WiFi network.

You may want to use Microsoft Accessibility to help if you cannot figure it out.

If so, you will need to consult the manufacturer’s instructions on how to set it up on the Wifi network.

 

If not, what Glen said is exactly what needs to happen.

Of course, consulting with the printer manufacturer is always useful.

Hi David, did you contact Google tech support about your issues? And without
knowing which handsets and Android versions it's difficult to know what
happened. I know for a fact that
Android users are successfully using braille displays with the OS. I
understand your frustration, but your experience does not mean there is no
braille display support in Android. Thanks, Norma

Braille support on Android is nonexistent. I tried to get this display
working on 3 different Android devices, and got nothing. Yet the OS claimed
it was supported. Braille support on all operating systems is very badly
tested, and is of a poorer quality than speech support, which is sad times,
but at least it's usable on everything else except Android. So if you need
portable braille, you're pretty much stuck with Apple, sadly. Android has
some nice options, and I'd prefer it, but I like to read a lot, so that
doesn't work.

I have 2 computers one has Office 2016 and the second has Office 2013.  I mostly use Word and outlook.  When I use the spell check , most, but not all the time the spell check dialogue is sluggish. 

 

I have the latest version of JAWS 2020 installed.  I have windows 10 on both computers.

 

This occurs in both Office programs I mentioned earlier.  Alt-tab away from the window and returning back does not solve anything.  Sometimes if I close JAWS and launch it again, it does help.  It does not seem to matter if I have other programs open as well or not.  Any ideas on how to resolve this?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Braille support on Android is nonexistent. I tried to get this display working on 3 different Android devices, and got nothing. Yet the OS claimed it was supported. Braille support on all operating systems is very badly tested, and is of a poorer quality than speech support, which is sad times, but at least it's usable on everything else except Android. So if you need portable braille, you're pretty much stuck with Apple, sadly. Android has some nice options, and I'd prefer it, but I like to read a lot, so that doesn't work.

I cannot find anything that allows you to tell it to return, say, 50 or 100 results per page.  But when Infinite Scroll is on, while no longer literally infinite, you get quite a few more results on each page.

hi folks,

 

i know that this is not the forum for this question, but maybe one of you good people might have some ideas as to where i should go.

currently, i have an old nokia phone about 300 years of age.

i have decided to take the great leap into the unknown and start using a modern tap screen phone.

i have a samsung android phone with talkback on it, but it is proving to be somewhat of a trouble.

i would say, that it is just because i am new to it, but web sites offering training tips seem to be non existent.

also, the braille keyboard seems to be a bit of a pain. i also dont want to have to attach a keyboard to it, as this defeats the purpose of having a phone you can carry around with you.

on the other hand, i have heard, that apple's voice over is much better.

again, training seems to be the problem. i should be able to get my hands on an ifone.

any thoughts?

anyone prefer one over the other?

cheers,

pat

No one has mentioned the breill support on the android is no where as good as the I Phone. Jonathon Moson still thinks the Android phones are behind in both the screen reader and the breill support.
