You could send me the newest one that you know does the save as audio.
I wonder if FS took that feature away, although I don't then know why it would still be in the file menu, but only unavailable.
Thanks

I've got some older versions of Openbook 9 saved, do you want any or all of them?  I don't think FS offers older versions of OB9 on their website.

Okay I just converted a .DOCX file to audio using the default Eloquence voice, so I wonder if you're running the latest version, but even an older version should work.  I'm running Openbook 9, what version are you running?

You really have only one choice and that is the Perkins Braille Writer. I don’t think you are looking for the electric one.

 

You can find brand new ones at Perkins Store. Price is around $900.00

 

Here is the web URL to the Perkins Store for Braille Writers:

https://brailler.perkins.org/pages/perkins-brailler

 

You can find people selling secondhand Perkins Braillers ranging in price from around $250.00 and I have seen some going for as high as $400.00. Ads are usually found on blindads a listserv found on groups.io, and you can find ads in the Braille Forum from the American Council of the Blind and the Braille Monitor from the National Federation of the Blind.

I know this is a bit of a work-around but I do the following.

Somewhere on the page I find myself & do not want to move focus from that point but want to know the current address.

I use, Insert+A, to have the address read aloud.

I use, Insert+Spacebar and then H, to open speech history.

I select and copy the address.

I close the speech history window and continue reading where I left and activate links but having the URL on the clipboard until I am ready to use it.

In cases like this, I will often insert a temporary placemarker where I was on the webpage before moving to a different program or going to the address bar.  Hit Control Windows K to put that temporary placemarker.  When you come back from the address bar or another document, just hit the letter k to quickly move to where you left off.

Subject: Re: Open Book Save As Audio

Hi Mike,
I've done this at least 50 times over the past 15 years or so, so it isn't that I don't know how.
I just cannot figure out why the option is unavailable.
Hoping someone here might know.
I wonder if it is because I'm using the Eloquence voice that comes with Open Book, instead of the windows TTS.
Thanks.

Morning Glenn,
 
Here are the steps I follow to convert text to audio:
 
1. While in Openbook navigate to the text file you want to open & save as an audio / MP3 or, WAV file.  Open the file, & wait for Openbook to process the
whole file.  It won't convert the file to audio until the file is finished processing.
2. After the file has finished processing press, Alt + F, to open the File menu, then press the letter, D, to open the save as audio menu.  Or press, Alt
+ F, & arrow up / down to, Save as audio, & press enter.
3. You'll now be in where you need to choose the page range, & the 2 options are radio buttons, Save Page Range or, Current Page.  If you choose the, Save
Page Range radio button, tab 1 time & it will give you the page range of the whole file, i.e, 1-115.  If the, Current Page, radio button is selected, &
you tab 1 time you'll get an, Okay, button, & if you press that Okay button only the current page will be saved as an audio file.
 
If you choose the, Save Page Range, radio button tab 1 time, & you have a, Save page range as a single file, checkbox.  If you leave this box checked the
file will be saved to audio in individual pages.  So, if the file is 115 pages long that's how many individual MP3 files you'll have.
If you uncheck this box the file will be saved as just 1 complete audio MP3 file consisting of all the pages.
 
4. Whether you choose Save Page Range or, Current Page, tab 1 more time to an, Okay, button, press the spacebar.  You'll now be in a File name edit field
/ dialogue box where you type in a name for the file.  After filling in the file name, tab 1 time to the, Files of type combobox, & you'll have 2 choices,
MP3 or, WAV, arrow up / down to make your choice.  Now tab 1 time to the Save, button, & press enter or spacebar, & wait for your file to finish converting. 
Your audio file / files will be saved to your chosen default location.  For example, my Openbook saved files go to My Documents folder, & Openbook creates
an, Audio folder that the files are saved to in the My Documents folder when saving as audio.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

Hi,
I hadn't reinstalled Open Book for a while, but I did tonight because I need to convert some text to audio.
I'm using the Eloquence voice that it comes with, and I put some text in the new document and try to save as audio in the file menu, and it keeps saying not available.
Does anyone know why this is?
Thanks.

I know this is a bit of a work-around but I do the following.

Somewhere on the page I find myself & do not want to move focus from that point but want to know the current address.

I use, Insert+A, to have the address read aloud.

I use, Insert+Spacebar and then H, to open speech history.

I select and copy the address.

I close the speech history window and continue reading where I left and activate links but having the URL on the clipboard until I am ready to use it.

Mark,

In cases like this, I will often insert a temporary placemarker where I was on the webpage before moving to a different program or going to the address bar.  Hit Control Windows K to put that temporary placemarker.  When you come back from the address bar or another document, just hit the letter k to quickly move to where you left off.

I recently switched to PureTalk USA with my iPhone SE 2020 and have now twice the data at half the price I was paying on Verizon.  So far, I am very happy with the service.  Customer Service is based here in US and have been extremely helpful at each level.  I was having trouble filling out the transfer form with JAWS and they just did it form me.  Got my SIM card in the mail and put it in and off and running.  I was really nervous about switching away from Verizon after 20 years, but the customer service by phone is so good with Pure Talk.  The website has been pretty easy to use for my account.  Only thing I couldn’t find yet and need to call customer service is for how to find how much data I have used in current billing cycle.

Have you checked out visible to see if they have any offers for phones And I would just wait a few months because you’ll probably see a newer SE model next year 2022.

I think it depends on the content of the web page.
sometimes I land where I was and other times I don't.
But it isn't difficult for me to find where I was, either by jumping by heading, or remembering a couple words where I left off and use the find command.

In addition to the JAWS insert-a solutions, you could press insert-d to bring the address into Windows focus, then control-c to copy it. In my case, I then paste the result into Notepad where I can read and edit it.
