Lag isn't a major problem with most modern bluetooth headphones. When you connect a cable, you prevent all possibility of lag. Ones I like pretty well are the Soundcore q20's.  They are a little bassy at times, but the built-in noise cancellation is really good for low steady noises, and you can easily turn it off or on.  The bluetooth seems fast, and it comes with a cable, which is often easier when not connecting to a cell phone.  Battery life on bluetooth is really good, and unless you have noise cancelling on, using with a cable shouldn't use the battery at all.

Well, for most intents, your unit is just a pc with a braille display attached.  Only reasons I can think of that it might not work is that the archive was damaged when you downloaded it, or fs-reader is damaged.  I'd download the thing again, and then figure out how to reinstall fs-reader if that doesn't work.  All else fails, get the book in another format such as .brf or word.

Hello.

During the past few days, I have tried a number of times to open and
read a particular Bookshare archive in DAISY format on my ElBraille
4th Generation using FS Reader 3.0. This is how I was told it would
work best to read electronic books in Braille on that particular
device. This has always worked well, except for the book in question:
"Napoleon" by Andrew Roberts.
https://www.bookshare.org/browse/book/2258342?returnPath=L3NlYXJjaD9tb2R1bGVOYW1lPXB1YmxpYyZrZXl3b3JkPWFuZHJldyByb2JlcnRz

Whenever I attempt to open this DAISY archive on the ElBraille, my
unit freezes. This has not happened with any other DAISY archives,
and the only difference I can see is that this one contains 69 files
instead of the 10 to 20 files that I ordinarily find in a Bookshare
DAISY archive. The data package weighs in at a little more than 10 MB
after I've decompressed.

Of course, I checked the integrity of my download and tested the same
file on FS Reader 3.0 using my more conventional Windows 10 PC: a Dell
Precision notebook. It worked perfectly.

Is this DAISY archive simply too big for ElBraille to process?

I realize I am casting a wide net here by sending to three different
lists at the same time, but I'm not sure who is best positioned to
help.

Thanks for any clues you may provide. I hope one of them will cause
me to solve this.

Kind regards,

I am having a similar issue. When I arrow through the message pane
Jaws does not read the names or titles of the message. I have to hit
inscert up arrow to read but that seems to stop quickly before
switching to "read" and "unread" without telling me when the sender or
subject.

Any ideas? Tried repairing and defaulting Outlook and Office 360.

Kindly,

It sounds like your machine is going to sleep and you are having to wake it up and login each time.
Check out the settings below:
Tap your Windows key and type power and sleep, and you should find the following:
Power & sleep settings, System settings, Press right to switch preview
Settings
Hit enter to open that setting.
The first setting is: Power & sleep and the combo boxes can be adjusted to what fits your usage.
Screen
On battery power, turn off after Combo box,
To change the selection use the Arrow keys.
When plugged in, turn off after Combo box
To change the selection use the Arrow keys.
Sleep
On battery power, PC goes to sleep after Combo box
To change the selection use the Arrow keys.
When plugged in, PC goes to sleep after Combo box
To change the selection use the Arrow keys.

Additional power settings Link
If you hit enter on that link you have these options:

And more.

I hope that helps,

Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot handle the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client.

Then, there is the good old OK button to click. I have checked in my control panel, and Outlook is the default client for mail. What could cause this?

It took me a long time to find that stupid setting.
Mike B. and Adriene, got me thinking about whether it was Jaws or Edge causing me fits of having to hit enter on the same link twice before it would activate the link.
That's what got me digging into the settings dealing with the web, and when I found the miscelaneous section and that setting, everything began working as it should have from the beginning.

I have no idea what genius decided to make pressing enter default to simulate a mouse click; but whomever they are, they would not be on my payroll.

This sounds like a problem I was having in Edge.
There is a setting under the Jaws Settings Center that you may want to look
at and consider changing.
Jaws, for some reason only known to the mysterious programmer gods, the
enter key may default to simulate a mouse click instead of sending an Enter
Key.
Open Settings Center with insert+6 on the numbers row.
Arrow down to Web/HTML/PDF closed and press the right arrow to open.
Press the letter m, for miscellaneous and right arrow to open.
Arrow down to: Link Activation Enter simulates mouse click.  Press spacebar
so it changes to:   Enter sends Enter key
Hit enter to save.
I did this on my default settings because I cannot think of any time I would
want enter to act like a mouse click, but you could just do it for your
browser of choice.

Hi, Richard. Did you go into the advanced settings and make the changes

1. Open Firefox.

2. In the Address Bar, type the following,



about:config



3. When it gives you the option to accept the risk and continue, Press
ENTER on that button.

4. After accepting the risk, an edit box will come up that allows you to

5. TAB to the entry that says,

6. Arrow down, and you will see a toggle button.

7. Toggle browser.startup.preXulSkeletonUI=True to

8. Once this is done, close Firefox.

8. Once this is done, close Firefox.

9. Now Firefox should behave as it has in the past.

Subject: Firefox doesn't switch to it when a link is clicked anymore



Hi!



I am using JAWS 2020 and Windows 10. In the past, if I clicked on a link somewhere like within an email or a desktop shortcut, Firefox (my default browser) would launch and I would be automatically switch to that window. Now, when I click on a link, Firefox launches but I *am not* switched to that window. To get to the newly launched Firefox window, I have to tab around to it. Seemingly, this started with the latest update to Firefox. How can I return to the functionality where upon clicking on a link I get automatically switched to the Firefox window?



Thanks,

Richard

What I do is to use shift enter and that opens a new window and when
I close the window, I am back where I started, I got used to this in
Chrome as well. I also set firefox to open new tabs as windows.

Or, you can use firefox nightly, download from Mozilla.org, works very nicely and much faster, I have been using it for about 10 days now and its really nice.

Hi, Richard. Did you go into the advanced settings and make the changes suggested a couple of days ago? If not, do the following,



1. Open Firefox.

2. In the Address Bar, type the following,



about:config



3. When it gives you the option to accept the risk and continue, Press ENTER on that button.

4. After accepting the risk, an edit box will come up that allows you to enter something to find. Enter the following into that box,



skeleton



5. TAB to the entry that says,



browser.startup.preXulSkeletonUI



6. Arrow down, and you will see a toggle button.

7. Toggle browser.startup.preXulSkeletonUI=True to

browser.startup.preXulSkeletonUI=False

8. Once this is done, close Firefox.

9. Now Firefox should behave as it has in the past.
