You have to also check start jaws after logon and in the combo box for this user, make sure it says always.

While I appreciate your comments, I've never not considered using a
product simply because it hasn't been updated recently. I tend to focus
on whether the product is accessible and does what I need it to do.
Money Talks doesn't do invoicing so won't work for you but it is great
for checkbook management and really doesn't need to be updated to
continue to be great at that.

Requirements include Windows 98, a CD ROM, and IE 5.5. It reminded me of
going back to college in 2009. I had a professor give me an assignment
on a 3.5 floppy written in Word Perfect. It took me longer to dig out a

Thank you for the suggestion, but I wouldn't mind having something with
some invoicing capabilities.

Hi Randy

I'm with you there. The only thing I do is shut JAWS down and restart. I suspect its a memory issue. Haven't tried Narrator I must admit and I agree, its very frustrating. I'm sure Freedom Scientific must be aware of this issue.

Hi,

 

This is ryan, I have new JAWS software setup in my work laptop.

 

I was trying to change the braille code  under  translations setting section of the Braille settings and I accidently chose another language  instead of English  under the output part so I cannot figure how to change back to English US even though the translation shows English US  as default but it still shows  another language for output so how do I get it fixed back to English US?

Any h

help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

moderated Excel Slowing Down When Editing Formulas

Randy Meyer
 

I am using latest version of Jaws 2021, latest Office 365 downloaded onto my computer, and Windows 10.  After I enter a few formulas, Jaws slows down to a glacial speaking pace when editing any formulas.  When arrowing left and right in a formula, Jaws will take at least a second before reading the next character.  If I hit the arrow key repeatedly, Jaws takes a longtime to catch up.  The same behavior happens if I use control arrow in the formula.

 

It makes editing Excel formulas with Jaws impossible.  The problem goes away if I switch to Narrator, but Narrator is verbose, and I don’t want to learn how to use it in place of Jaws.

 

This behavior is happening on my main desktop computer, and has been for over a year.  It does not happen when performing the same tasks within Excel on my ElBraille.  I reviewed all Excel setting options on both machines, and set them all the same, to make sure there wasn’t an Excel setting causing the issue.

 

Any suggestions on how I can fix this long standing issue?

Hi Phillip!

 

I have heard that QuickBooks *online* is fairly accessible, but it costs money on a sliding scale based on your needs.  Also, see the below link to “Wave,” which is likewise reputed to be accessible.  I have not tried either.  However, Wave is free for basic needs, and then costs money on a sliding scale too.

 

https://www.waveapps.com/accounting

 

For various reasons, I dislike QB.  Soon, I am going to try Wave.  For a number of reasons, I am drawn to it.

 

HTH,

Richard

You should look into QuickBooks Online, but this of course does come with a monthly subscription cost.

Intuit has put some effort into improving the accessibility o f QuickBooks Online and it's certainly useable. I am using it for my retail business although I must admit that while I started using it at the beginning of the year I have not yet had time to get myself trained on it. I will very shortly get some help from my accountant because my requirements are a bit more complex than those of some other small businesses. For now my accountant has set up the integration between my point of sale system and QuickBooks Online so every day a lot of information is dumped into QuickBooks from the POS system, but I still have to do some manual work like properly assigning taxes to my supplier invoices which QuickBooks gets from the purchase orders we enter in our POS system and I have to deal with payroll entries and so on. Then there is of course bank reconciliation and recording supplier payments and tax payments. My bank account and business Visa are also connected to QuickBooks so all transactions are already there and just have to be reviewed and posted correctly.

I used Sage 50 for over 20 years and it was never connected to either my POS system or bank so I did all entries manually and while I could use Sage just fine for what I needed I would not say it is fully accessible. I just knew either how many times I had to tab on the home screen to get into a certain module (nothing rads on the home screen) or I would know work-arounds for other issues.

There are also some other online systems, but not sure where you are and if they are available. In Canada there is Wave Accounting which is also strictly an online system and I know some small businesses which use it. QuickBooks Online is nice in that you can invite your accountant to have access so when year-end and such comes around they can simply log in and do what they need to do.

moderated Help With OpenText and JAWS - SmartView and ClassicView and Brava

Mark Fisher
 

Hi Everyone - Happy Hump Day

Does anyone have experience in using JAWS with OpenText document management system? Whilst the Enterprise Connect component is reasonably accessible, the way we've done some aspects of SmarView means I can't get to certain float over menus to activate a number of options which are not available in the Enteprise Connect portion. I also find these issues in the Classic View portion.


Also, wen reading documents with Brava within the OpenText framework, spaces between words are spoken as "Graphic" by JAWS.

I'm running the latest version of JAWS

I'd love to here from anyone else about any tips and tricks they have used including whether they had to get custom scripts written. I am also reaching out to OpenText.

Phillip,

 

I don’t know how many accounting functions you require for your small business but if it is primarily checkbook related, you might try Money Talks from APH. It doesn’t have receivables, payables, or inventory capability but its checkbook capability is outstanding and is very accessible with JAWS and transferring its detail to Excel is very easy. You can read about it here:
