Amen!!  And essentially the same questions, where the answer on one would apply on another, get asked on multiple lists at once.

Defragmentation should be a goal, but alas, it's not.

Actually, my church uses a software which allows text layout as in a magazine, and the contents are not readable by a screen reader because they are captured as images. The reason for this is to allow the appearance as in a periodical but the text isn't accessible.

Now I'll put myself out there for flogging, but I really don't
understand why there is this tendency in the blind/low-vision community
to do two things:

1. Split each and every blessed technology into separate groups.
2. Avoid non-blind-specific groups for things like Google Home and
Amazon Echo, where nothing, including setup, is specific to blind
users.


In any case, there is the Blind Technology group, which allows
discussion of virtually any technology you can name with an emphasis on
use of same by blind individuals. All pertinent details will be sent in

Hi John,
 
I thought the, Recognize with Jaws, feature came out with Jaws 18 but, it didn't come until Jaws2018.  You could also try using Openbook to extract any text from the file as well.
With Openbook open the file, press, Control + P, to open the print dialogue, navigate to, Freedom Import Printer, and press enter.  Wait a little bit for Openbook to get started and to scan the image.  If it finds any text it should read it.
Take care.  Go Rams!

Hi Bill/all:

 

I have been following the messages in this thread but find that I do have a question.

 

My default PDF reader is Adobe acrobat DC. I use this to have the capability to edit PDF forms and other PDF files.

 

I am completely new to using Adobe acrobat, rather than adobe reader.

 

When I try to access a PDF document online through Internet explorer, and the PDF displays, I find that all JAWS will do is to say something like “open parent document button.” When I press enter, hoping to access the text with JAWS, all I get is “blank” when I arrow up or down.

 

Any advice/thoughts please? Perhaps I need to install an extension?

 

 

Best,

Depending on how you have your browser set up it might open up in the browser or the file can be handed off to whatever you have set as your system's default PDF viewer.  If the latter, you can use the Save As feature of the system PDF viewer (e.g., Adobe Acrobat DC).  If the former, there's generally a download control in the browser's PDF presenter, but I haven't played with getting to that control via screen reader.

That could be if there were not end-user mechanisms to control the flow of messages from a given group, but Groups.io gives exquisite control over exactly what messages you receive:  Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io

Most of the groups I participate on with regard to anything are not actively moderated.  There are moderators (myself among them) that can and will step in if a situation calls for it and is called to our attention, but in general members post as they please because they abide by the community rules.

In any case, I really just wanted to point out the Blind Tech group, which is blessedly "general purpose" and has been around for a very long time now (it predates its existence on Groups.io by quite a few years, if memory serves).  You also learn a lot that you didn't ever think about because you just happen to get topics that are very interesting that never would have entered your mind spontaneously.

You can do “JAWS+Spacebar then “o” and then either “e” or “w”. I t doesn’t really give you anything, but give it a shot. You can also try using the application key then the letter “j” which recognize any text if there is any. The first way you have to open the file, the second way, you just right click (the application key).

HTH.

I have had good experience with this. Following Don's suggestion, without opening the file press the applications key and arrow to "recognize with JAWS" or just type the letter J. For me, it worked like a charm!

Re: Any list for blind Alesa and Google Home voice controlled devices

My guess is that those who start these groups don't know other ones exist.

Now I'll put myself out there for flogging, but I really don't understand why there is this tendency in the blind/low-vision community to do two things:
  1. Split each and every blessed technology into separate groups.
  2. Avoid non-blind-specific groups for things like Google Home and Amazon Echo, where nothing, including setup, is specific to blind users.

In any case, there is the Blind Technology group, which allows discussion of virtually any technology you can name with an emphasis on use of same by blind individuals.  All pertinent details will be sent in response to e-mailing:   blindtech+help@groups.io

Re: Saving an pdf file

 

James,

           I have not dealt with Adobe Acrobat proper in years, but I wonder if it doesn't have an accessibility wizard just like Adobe Reader DC does.  In Reader DC running the accessibility wizard at install makes interacting with a screen reader and Reader itself much easier.
