Who is they? We had such a program a few years ago and the CNIB at least in BC were not allowed to do any assessments. I was informed why by a government worker directly involved in determining who got what, but will not mention it on this group.

David, I don’t know if the assistive devices program is across Canada. It is definitely in Ontario.

Every five years you can get a computer assessment done at the CNIB. 

I get my computer assessment done at the University of Waterloo just because I like them and I’ve been going to them since I was a kid.

Once you get your assessment done, they give you some forms to sign, you send these forms off to the assistive devices program, they return them to you with approval, you buy your computer, you send them the receipt, and they refund you the money.

The program is not as good as it used to be but it still exists.

You are entitled to a computer and jaws every five years.

They can also provide you with a list of assistive devices program vendors. You can take your forms to one of these vendors and they will handle everything for you. Meaning you don’t have to buy anything and wait for a refund. They will take your forms and give you your computer and jaws, and you’re done.

As I told you in my previous message this is the number I called which I provided for you and this is the information they told me. I did call Freedom Scientific in the USA and they confirmed that they do not upgrade or sell no longer to Canadian customers they are the ones who gave me this number. I called this number and this is the information the gentleman gave me.

Also I would like to mention that if you were in Canada you are entitled to jaws every five years through the assistive devices program. In which case you would get a full version of jaws for free if you are eligible.

Hi there,

I am also in Canada, and recently had to deal with this issue. You do not have to buy a new version of jaws you can upgrade. It is cheaper to upgrade then to buy the new version. If you are on jaws 18 and want to upgrade to jaws 21 and you bypass the upgrades to jaws 19 and jaws 20 then yes you will have to purchase A whole new version which costs $1030 Canadian. If you want to upgrade you can upgrade to 2019 2020, 2021, and have a license for 2022 to upgrade for $480 Canadian plus taxes if you are not registered with the CNIB. If you’re registered with CNIB you will not have to pay taxes.

You cannot purchase from Freedom Scientific there is a Canadian number. Their telephone number is

 

 1 (800) 665-3005

You misunderstood for upgrades, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022. $480 not including taxes. As you stated and as I stated before if you’re registered with the CNIB you don’t have to pay taxes.

Alternatively, if you have a job and can prove you need JAWS and, without it you are in danger of loosing your job, The province may have a government program to help as they do in the Province of B C(Work BC) Earlier there were programs for such a thing available. You just had to prove a need, not a want.

Hi,

You would buy the update from a Canadian reseller. At this point, you have
to update from 2018 to 2021 so that means you need 3 updates because you are
3 years behind and they will not sell you an intermediate version so they
will charge you 3 times the price of the update unless they have changed
their policy but I don't think so.

Are you using the Windows store version? Or the desktop app? Both appear to be mostly the same, although I think someone said somewhere that for screen readers apparently the Windows store one is not quite as usable. I’ve found it to be a bit sluggish here, myself, with my large music library. But the alt+f command does in fact get me to the file menu, so I don’t know why it is not working  there other than that I have downloaded the desktop app from apple, not the Windows store one.

A scanned signature is not the same thing as a digital signature.

Just like many organizations will accept, say, a FAX copy of an original document with signature, they'll also accept anything else that produces what looks like the originator's actual signature when printed.  When I submit billing sheets to the Virginia DBVI they all have a scanned copy of my signature inserted on the signature line, in Excel, in that case.

Digital signatures are a thing of their own.

If you want to upgrade you can upgrade to 2019 2020, 2021, and have a license for 2022 to upgrade for $480 Canadian plus taxes if you are not registered with the CNIB. If you’re registered with CNIB you will not have to pay taxes.

You cannot purchase from Freedom Scientific there is a Canadian number. Their telephone number is

 

 1 (800) 665-3005

    Hi all,
For anyone who lives in Canada, I'm hoping you can help me. My current licence
is good until version 2018, can I just update my licence, or will I have to buy
a whole new licence and copy of Jaws? Can I buy from Freedom Scientific, or do I
have to buy from a Canadian dealer? I really hope someone can help me, as I've
never done this before. Thanks
Madison

Thank you very much, Brian.  You finally have told me exactly what I need to know, and I am now getting Google calendar notifications via e-mail.  I use Google calendar, but I still also use Outlook.  I primarily use Google Calendar for things that are Zoom-related.

I have heard that there are three ways you can get notifications—e-mail, Desktop and Alert.

Rick,

            This is true, but Desktop Notification is one thing, and Alert, in practice, is set on the event itself and can be done via e-mail, or pop-up notification which is presented in the manner appropriate to the device on which it's being done.

            What you are encountering in the main Calendar settings is correct.  You choose one of three things:  Off, Desktop, or Alerts (and I'm not trying to split hairs here, but the choice for Alerts is plural).  My own Google Calendar main setting for notification is Alerts.

             The specific Alert or Alerts you actually get are not done at the Calendar level, but as part of creating or editing an Event.  When you create a New Event, only a few of the many fields/options are shown initially for both ease and speed, and these are:  Title, Date & Time, Add Guests, Add Google Meet Video Conferencing, Add Location, Add Description and attachments, and the actual calendar the event will be created in.  The last is only really relevant if you have access to more than one calendar, which I do, so I am not positive whether it will show to anyone who is using a single calendar.   After those things, at the end of the pop-up dialog for the Event, are two controls:  More Options and Save.   If you wish to add any one of the other possible features to an event, and this would include the sorts of notifications you want, you must activate More Options before these features become visible.

              Now, I will presume you have activated More Options on the Event.  If you set a default notification in Calendar Settings (and we can come back to that later if needed) you will see one notification already present with whatever you set up.  In my case the default notification is "Notification" (which is the pop-up I mentioned earlier) and 30 minutes ahead of the event, followed by an option to delete it.  Immediately following that, is the Add Notification, control, which allows you to add as many additional notifications, whether by Notification or Email, that you want.

               I'll now presume you've activated the Add Notification Control for the event. By the way, all of what follows is also part of that default notification I mentioned, as you can tweak your chosen default if you want or need to.  You are presented with three components:
1. A dropdown that lets you pick Notification or Email.
2. A combo box for a number of units before the event.  You can either type in the number or use the up/down arrows that are part of that control.
3. The "units" dropdown, where you pick minutes, hours, days, or weeks.

So if you want e-mail notifications, you do have to set them up in the event, not at the calendar level.  And since I've never used the Desktop option at the calendar level, I can't describe what happens if it's on.  I have always used Alerts and set up the alerts I need on a given event when I create it.

At one time the event-level notifications settings appeared without the use of the previously mentioned More Options control.  But that changed at least a year and a half to two years back, I can't remember exactly when.  And I still find that change mightily annoying.  I virtually never have need to deal with anything other than the event title, date & time, and calendar selection that's shown on the initial pop-up dialog.  I'd far rather have both the event-level notifications options and repeat options shown on the initial pop-up dialog, and would gladly ditch a couple of the other things like location, attachments/description, guests, and video conferencing options that currently do appear.
