moderated Re: assigning custom label with jaws.

Patrick Murphy
 

Hi Enrique,

i tried your suggestion.

insert+g opens the graphics labeler, but jaws tells me that i am not on a
graphic with the jaws cursor.
i have routed it to the graphic, i even did a lef click on it just to be
sure, but it still says that it is not positioned.
the only thing i have discovered, and quite by accident, is that the custom
label sticks, even though jaws does not read it.
then, if i press insert+ctrl+g, jaws gives me a list of graphics.
the graphics i have assigned a custome label to then show their custom
labels, but this is a real pain.
the graphics hold numbers, which are confirmation numbers for a shutdown.
the same graphics appear if you want to dismount a disk.
i suppose, that if there is no other way to do this, the custom label option
and insert+ctrl+g will have to do.
however, if you have another idea, i would be greatful for it.
these must be some sort of funny type of graphics.
i informed buffalo about it last year, and they said they would do something
about it.
however, as we all know, big companies dont pay any attention to this, as we
are in the minority, and especially when it comes to things like nas
devices.

cheers anyway,

pat

You can, Pat. Just route the JAWS cursor to each of the graphics and
label them with insert+G. If the numbers that appear as graphics are
displayed in different permutations each time you visit the site, the
labeled graphics will be read as they appear, which makes them quite
flexible.
Custom labels are not used for labeling graphics; they're for
labeling controls that JAWS reports as "unlabeled" (E.G. buttons).
But these are not unlabeled controls; they're graphics. So use the
graphics labeler rather than the custom labeler.

When you get an e-mail message asking you to like a page, is it enough for you to just use insert f7 for the links list, and like it?

 

Or, do you have to go onto the page and click the like button?

 

I did both.

I’m guessing that you tried the undo command with control Z. Other than that, may be close Microsoft word and if it asks to save, say no. And then you can re-open it.

I am rather sure GoldWave won't know what a CWP file is.
That sounds like a CakeWalk file type, which is the mother company of Sonar.

It seems odd to have both weav and midi files in the same project, though the midi files might be the same music but the music notation files for the same passage as one before it?
I never dealt with Sonar enough to know.

Well, are they in an odd format, or standard mp3 or .wav or windows media, etc.?

If so, GoldWave has a nice file merge feature that is completely accessible.  You would use the Tools menu and select File Merge and then add the folder and if they are in order already, it can put them into one file for you.

There is a fully functional demo, or if you decide to use it on an ongoing basis it is only $50, or so.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I've been thinking about this for a while, and I wonder, are any of these programs accessible to screenreaders like JAWS? These are freewares that are used for splitting and merging files. The reason why I ask this is because I have these files I'm trying to recover, specifically Sonar projects that I didn't get the chance to back up, and what I notice is that each big file has been divided into 46 fragments, all sequentially numbered. This happened on a hard drive that my friend, Markus and I formatted quite by accident in 2015, the first time when we were restoring my machine back to working order. I've used ICare Data Recovery Pro, which I purchased for $71.99 from http://www.icare-recovery.com, and that is where I discovered these files and folders I'm trying to recover are in 46 fragments. Or should I leave this recovery job to Drivesavers? https://www.thefreecountry.com/utilities/file-splitters.shtml

Well, Do they know you are blind?
Hopefully.
You could point out that you need the Jaws screen reader is necessary to do your job.
You will need someone with administrator rights to install it.
The good news is if you want to save them having to buy Jaws, you should be able to install it under your license.
Then, arrange to uninstall it whenever you leave the job down the road.

Hi.

 

I’ve just been hired as a customer service representative, a work from home job.  For my work, I’ll be using a PC that they’re providing. I’d try to convince them to allow me to use my laptop, but I have to use their headset to do my job, and I suspect it wouldn’t work on my system. I think it uses Windows 10, but I don’t know the version. With all this in mind, I’m hoping to install JAWS on it. I do, however, have some questions to ask.

 

First, how do I approach them regarding installing JAWS on the PC? I don’t know much about Narrator, and I do know more about JAWS, so that would make me more productive from the start. I would rather not bring up the A.D.A. unless I have to.

 

My other concern is installing JAWS itself. Since this PC is specifically for work, I suspect they have limited what can be installed on it. What do I need to tell them I need to install it?

 

I get this PC on Friday, and my training begins on Monday morning.  The good news is I have all weekend to sort this out. The bad news is I think there won’t be people who can help me that work there over the weekend. This is why I’m writing this note tonight. I have all day tomorrow to get advice and ideas.

I'm sure that programs that do that look for similar files and can group them accordingly, perhaps using the fragment time to know which is which.

If so, GoldWave has a nice file merge feature that is completely accessible.  You would use the Tools menu and select File Merge and then add the folder and if they are in order already, it can put them into one file for you.

There is a fully functional demo, or if you decide to use it on an ongoing basis it is only $50, or so.

Subject: Are Any Of These Accessible To Screenreaders?

 

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I've been thinking about this for a while, and I wonder, are any of these programs accessible to screenreaders like JAWS? These are freewares that are used for splitting and merging files. The reason why I ask this is because I have these files I'm trying to recover, specifically Sonar projects that I didn't get the chance to back up, and what I notice is that each big file has been divided into 46 fragments, all sequentially numbered. This happened on a hard drive that my friend, Markus and I formatted quite by accident in 2015, the first time when we were restoring my machine back to working order. I've used ICare Data Recovery Pro, which I purchased for $71.99 from http://www.icare-recovery.com, and that is where I discovered these files and folders I'm trying to recover are in 46 fragments. Or should I leave this recovery job to Drivesavers? https://www.thefreecountry.com/utilities/file-splitters.shtml

Well, are they in an odd format, or standard mp3 or .wav or windows media, etc.?

JM Casey
 

Which makes sense. Can you imagine trying to represent emojis with actual braille symbols? We already have enough obscurity with special typefaces and other things -- iE, "bold", "italics" and such in braille are really just special "brackets" and the print terms themselves are meaningless in braille, but we want to show them anyway (and we should) -- but go too far down that slope and you have endless layers of representation that are just obfuscative and confusing, especailly for beginners.

Whether emojjis are "spokeN" or not really depends on a lot of different factors -- chiefly the screen-reader being used, but also the software used to isplay those emojis in the first place.

Imo emojis are a bit of a dead end, despite what goofy stuff like 'The Emoji Story" might try to tell you.

I am a literary braille transcribing student through the NFB. personal experience and the manual both confirm the answer to your question is no. typically anything of that sort must be identified and described in a transcribers special symbols note. hope this helps.

Hi folks,


Using braille, is there anyway to identify emojis? Of course, when I'm just using speech output, the characters are correctly spoken. But so far, on my Orbit 20 Plus display, all I see for emojis is two full braille cells side by side. I've figured out this is an emoji, but have no idea what it is without invoking speech.


I'd have to pull it out and connect it to test, but I think this also happened on my old RB18.


Is there anyway of identifying emojis using a braille display?


Thanks,
