Hi James,

Ever since the convention sales have started, Sight and Sound - the UK distributor - has replicated the sale.

Unlike GW Micro, FS have never been willing to sell to international customers and require all sales to be through the relevant local dealer.

Cheers,

Ed

That is an excellent question for Freedom Scientific, and I have personally never seen anyone from Freedom Scientific on this list.
I'd write Eric Damery directly:
I'd write Eric Damery directly: EDamery@Vispero.com

I wonder if the exchange rate has anything to do with the price difference?

I'm in the US, so am pretty unaware of how that works for those of you in other countries.

Since their software is international, it seems like something could be done but I suspect it is the difference in copyright laws etc.

A SMA does not expire. An SMA gives you license for a particular version and you can keep using it as long as you wish. If your current SMA is for JAWS 2021 you can keep using JAWS 2021 , however if you wish to use JAWS 2022, you will need to purchase a SMA.
On the other hand, An annual home subscription will be good for only a year and at the end of that year, you will need to renew the subscription for another year, or it will no longer work except in 40 minute mode.

If I have a SMA with no upgrades, how do I determine when it will expire, and if I purchase a Home Annual Licence, will it start immediately, or at the time my SMA expires?

If you have no upgrades left, and are running Jaws 2021, it expires when they release Jaws 2022. That is, the price may go up if you wait until 2022 to renew the SMA.

So follow the link for checking serial numbers, and you will find out what you need to purchase to stay up to date.

Or, call them on Tuesday. I assume Monday will be a holiday for them.

You may want to experiment whether shift+f6 is quicker if you find that it takes several presses of f6 to return you to the virtual buffer.

Sorry about my previous message.  My keyboard randomly goes into gamer mode and things get wacky.

 

Thanks for the responses.  I called Brian this morning and liked the answers I received.  I have ordered the course and scripts and am excited about learning to use them.

 

I am doing some volunteer work helping to improve site accessibility.  The person I have been working with has been patient while I try to learn Teams but I am not sure everyone will be as understanding.  This should help me not to waste so much of their time and hopefully make a better impression for our community.

Hi Tony:

 

I use the screen sharing in teams a lot. 

 

Ms Teams has a command to pop up the sharing toolbar its

Control + shift + e

 

Then you need to arrow to left or right.  I believe the share my screen is 2 arrows to the right and hit enter.

 

This shares your screen.  So the person at the other end can see it.  Although they don’t have any control.  So to give them control they need to request it and you need to give it to them. 

 

It also takes a few key strokes to do that.

I’m all about efficiency so I’ve been thinking of asking Brian to add commands to do these tasks.  It would save a pile of  key board commands that one needs to do currently.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Have a good day.

Just starting with Teams.  I’m doing fairly well with the free scripts and have listened to the Hartgen audio description. 

 

One thing I have run up against, and did not hear on the audio, is settings in Teams.  Sharing my computer audio is easy but sharing my screen is a graphic that I can’t find and don’t always have sighted help available. 

 

I assume there are probably other hidden controls as well.  Does Hartgen’s scripts provide access to these controls?

 

Thanks

 

Tony

Excellent feedback, just the kind of info I’m looking for about his scripts. How does it handle the teams and channels tab?

 

 

Thanks,

Jason

Hi:

 

I’ve been using ms Teams for almost 2 years now.  Initially just used the scripts included with Jaws, then tried out the free scripts from Doug Lee, and a month ago purchased the Teams course as well as the scripts from Brian Hartgen.

 

The first thing I would like to point out about Brian’s scripts  is that he has put a lot of emphasis on being efficient.  There are lots of commands in his scripts that make a user extremely efficient when working with Teams.

 

e.g.

 

  1. A key stroke to tell you the status of the mike when on a teams call.
  2. A key stroke to list all the participants in the meeting
  3. A key board command to jump to and display the conversations in a meeting.
  4. A keyboard command that will bring the ms teams into focus from any other location.  Extremely useful.
  5. Ability to assign sounds to notifications etc.

Although I’ve been using ms teams for almost 2 years, I’ve experienced some difficulties in areas like working with team feeds as compared to the chats

So I’ve found his ms teams course extremely helpful. 

 

Note: I’ve attended webinars from both Microsoft Accessibility desk, and Vispero.  These webinars were good to get you going, but to really use the full capability of ms teams Brian’s course is great.

 

So if you are concerned with being as efficient when working with ms Teams as your sighted colleagues then Brian’s course and scripts are worth the cost.  As well Brian fully supports his work, he has an email group for questions and one can always ask for new features to be included in the scripts and if they make sense he adds them.

 

Anyways, I’m very happy with both the course and the scripts.

 

If you have any other specific questions please feel free to write me at any time.

 

Have a nice day.

What does the Brian Hartgen  scripts offer that JFW does not already include in the out of the box scripts? I’m looking for impressions from those who have used both.

 

Thanks,

Jason

Hi you can find old scripts at:

https://www.dlee.org

 

I believe these scripts are free but they are not up-to-date.

 

You can buy scripts from Brian Hartgen as he has done a webinar and has scripts that you can buy from his website at:

http://www.hartgen.org

 

Payment can be made through Paypal
