My understanding is that besides several custom applications written for the ElBraille, it's just a Windows 10 Home system running JAWS as the screen reader. The braille-related sections of the JAWS help topics would be an important reference - especially the various braille keyboard operations for entering JAWS commands and simulating Windows keystrokes.

These are all documented extensively in the JAWS help system.

Hi, Jeff. As Tom says, you can burn your files to disc using iTunes, but I don't know if someone else can play them. m4p files are protected. That's what the p in m4p stands for, Protected.

Hello Everyone,

I have a quick question.

I am making a Christmas compact disc to send to family and friends.

I had a playlist in iTunes. Then I downloaded it on my PC.

Now the files are in m4p files. I need to conver them into Mp3 to be able to burn the compact disc.

Does anyone know of an easy program to do this?

Thanks,

Jeff Lukacsena

Hi there,
If you have the playlist in iTunes, go to the file menu when the playlist is in focus and choose to burn disk. iTunes an easy way of burning a playlist.

Hello,

 

I don’t think that removing JAWS 2020 would have caused the removal of MaGic from your system.

 

It is my understanding that Freedom Scientific has stopped supporting or distributing MaGic so if you are needing both screen enlargement your choice is to go with Fusion which combines ZoomText and JAWS in one package or buying Zoom Text as a separate license. It will make more sense to buy a License for Fusion, cost wise.

Good morning Listers: I recently installed J 2022. It is my practice to keep the last 2 versions and remove anything older. So I removed J 2020.

 

Is it  possible that in removing J 2020 I also removed Magic? Suddenly Magic has disappeared from my system. I have run every search I can think of, and Magic is no where to be found.

 

Next question is—can I get it back?
