You may not be able to upgrade it since it is a very old model. You should contact VFO to see if the firmware can be updated.

I have a very old Focus 40 Braille display.  It shuts down in the middle of whatever I am doing after I have been on the particular application for a certain amount of time.  Someone said to update to the latest firmware version.  How do I know which version to install?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

You can get a JAWS dongle for this. Basically it’s a USB that holds the license. JAWS needs to be installed on both machines but you don’t need to purchase a license for both machines. You buy a JAWS dongle from freedom scientific. It holds the license.

 

So I have the dongle on my laptop at home. I also have JAWS installed on my laptop at home. I turn JAWS on on my home laptop. I then remote into my machine in the office and turn JAWS on on my work machine. There is only 1 license for both JAWS.

Hi Lynn, 

 

I have successfully used JAWS with a virtual desktop.  JAWS needs to be installed on the virtual desktop as well as your "personal" desktop.   I cannot recall the keyboard commands to switch between desktops but it does work.  If you want to email me off list you can do that.

It is pretty standard that you pay for shipping to a company, but they will cover the shipping back since it is under warranty.
I recommend sending things via Priority Mail through the US post office.

It is much cheaper than FedEx or UPS and you can track the package etc.
I hope you communicate with them before sendning it in and had done all the steps to exercise the pins and generate the log files to send them....

Ali,

Orbit Research will be releasing a 40 cell display very soon. Their 20
cell is quite good. The 40 will cost about $1400.

Freedom Scientific sells their Focus 40 5th jeneration display for
around $2800.

Humanware and The American Printing House for the blind have released
their Mantis 40 cell display that has a TWERTY Keyboard instead of a
braille keyboard for around $2500.

HIMS has the QBraille 40 that I believe is about $3200.

I hope that helps you get started.

It is not necessary to uninstall JAWS. Instead, run the installer for your version of JAWS and choose "repair" from the list of options. If you don't have the installer for your version you can obtain it by going to the Freedom Scientific Web site and selecting the Downloads link. Doing a repair will likely bring JAWS back to a default state, meaning that voice settings and hotkeys will go back to their original settings.

Breaking: Settlement Brings Audio-described Content to HBO max

J.J. Meddaugh Oct 19, 2020 11:21 AM ET

 

HBO Max is at long last joining the ranks of streaming services which will include audio description, thanks to a settlement announced today.

Per the agreement, the service will include at least 1,500 hours of described content by next March, and at least four times that amount by March 2023. Improvements to their website and mobile apps are also promised by September of next year.

The agreement was reached between WarnerMedia who owns HBO Max and a group of defendants
including the American Council of the Blind, the Massachusetts-based Bay State Council of the Blind, and Kim and Brian Charlson.

Maybe.

I have had some of that myself. Try using that control home after you hit the key to edit the cell. It seems to go back to the beginning of the cell and you could then arrow to the right.

moderated Question About Excel

clarence carter
 

Lately, I have noticed that when I hit the F2 key to edit a cell, JAWS reads the contents, but I cannot move through the contents of a cell. For example if I want to check the spelling of an entry, I usually hit F2 and arrow back and forth to see the spelling. I do the same thing if I want to check a formula. Am I missing a JAWS or Excel setting?
