Re: Jaws and Very Large PDF documents

LAZZARI Ruth
 

Thanks for all of those fine suggestions. I am definitely going to try the Q read for other projects! Unfortunately, she also will need to actually manipulate and edit the document; for instance extract pages then insert them in another. Converting/opening them in word then reconverting can definitely change the formatting. There are many intense tax forms and formats in one of these files.

I think for now (since we cannot ask for them in another format) we might just need to split up the actual documents into 2 or 3 files to do the editing required. I am going to keep trying alternatives though.

Thanks again,

Having some experience with reading long legal documents just for fun, I'd say that you could try something like Q read. If you can extract a page from the document, is there a way to split it into smaller sizes?
Here's a service that will do this, you just have to upload the file.
They do have a desktop client it looks like.

Also last time I tried it Q read did not work with the JAWS OCR features. It hasn't updated since then, so I doubt much has changed, then again I could be wrong.

Re: Is there a reason to not upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

One issue is the availability of drivers for a older computer. I also noticed that when I upgraded a win 7 to Win 10 OS the computer seemed to run much slower. Having said that Win 10 seems to be a good operating system.

If you have a good backup just in case, and you're comfortable running PowerShell scripts, it should be fairly clear from Microsoft's instructions what to do. If you don't have that background, then I'd suggest having the installation done by someone who does.

The baseline configuration enables various Windows security features, including virtualization-based security, attack surface reduction rules, network protection (blocking of known malicious Web sites), tighter user permissions, stronger BitLocker encryption, prevention of users from writing to unencrypted USB drives, etc.

Just guessing here, but there may not be an application key at all. I
just bought a laptop that doesn't have one and it's going back to the
seller.

As for the function keys, they may be set to perform hardware
functions rather than the application specific functions you would
expect. I'm not sure how you would change that on an HP laptop. But
you can get the app specific function by holding down the FN key while
pressing the function keys.

I hope this helps.

Hi,



Not a lot of people know that the built in windows disk cleanup as some
additional features which you can’t see when running disk clean up in the
usual way. The below options have been in windows I think since xp, maybe
even longer and its completely accessible with Jaws, I’ve always been
surprised that windows don’t add these options to their standard disk
cleanup tool, but I guess they are advance settings so don’t want the
average user deleting stuff they might later want. So that being said I
should probably point out to anyone using the extended disk cleaner settings
I mention below to only delete stuff you know you don’t want/need. So its
really easy to access just go to run and type the following



cleanmgr sageset:99



This brings up the standard disk cleanup interface but with more options
than just standard disk clean up. You select what you want it to clean up
and click ok, which closes the disk cleanup window, then go to run again and
then this time type the following to run disk cleanup with the settings you
just selected



cleanmgr sagerun:99



hope the above helps

Chris,

You are correct in your assessment of registry cleaners in
general, not just CCleaner's (which, at least, must be intentionally run as
it's not a part of default cleaning). I know of no one who's a "tech geek"
with any depth of experience who recommends using these.

For those that are looking for a comprehensive junk file cleaner
I'd suggest you take a look at Singular Labs' System Ninja
<https://singularlabs.com/software/system-ninja/> . I cannot swear that it
is accessible, but given both its interface style and its length of
remaining relatively unchanged I'd strongly suspect it will be. At any
rate, for personal use it's free so the readership here can certainly
download, assess accessibility, and report back.

Re: Jaws and Very Large PDF documents

Jason White
 

Try the PDF reader that is built into current versions of Google Chrome. It
works better in many cases than Adobe Reader, in my experience.

Also, you could purchase and install ABBYY FineReader to convert the PDF files
into HTML or Microsoft Word format.

Good Morning,

I am trying to assist a tax accountant who uses Jaws 2018 and Adobe Reader Pro 11 . She is often give pdf files that are up to 1000 pages to read and extract pages as necessary! While Jaws reads as normal for smaller documents, less than 500, at 1000+ we only get a Document Empty message. We know that the document has been OCR'd, in fact when we extract a page from the large document it works well. We have:
1) Tested this with NVDA as well as the Adobe Read Out Loud. We receive the same message.
2) Tried all of the Adobe reading settings, e.g. process one page at a time, read from left to right, raw stream, etc.
3) Ran Accessibility Checker which indicated that it indeed it is not an image
4) Checked the Adobe security settings, which indicates no protection at all.
5) Behaves the exact same way in Adobe Reader versus Pro.

I cannot test this document in Jaws 2019 because they are confidential tax documents, and at this time she does not have Jaws 2019 installed. (We are working on that now.)

If anyone has any ideas at all, we would truly appreciate it.

Thanks so much!

Let me see if I can explain it better. Shift f10 won’t work if you are trying to right-click on a bookmark in the menu so you can get the context menu to delete it. That’s the only place I’ve ever found where it doesn’t work, but there it is.

Re: New Jaws subscription plan, why US only?

Hi Nick and all,

 

In the US they love to identify themselves as America which is far from being correct. If they want to call themselves America, let them include all of North America. If they don't want to go overseas with this, due to language problems, that is their business but they should at least include all of North America in at least English which is the international language of computers.

Subject: New Jaws subscription plan, why US only?

 

Hi all

I sent a message to FS support asking why the new Jaws yearly subscription plan is for US customers only, but I haven’t received any reply yet. Your thoughts on this?

 

As I see it, they are basically saying that us users outside the US don’t really require a more affordable way to purchase Jaws and that they are only giving this more affordable option to people in the US.

 

I’m also wondering what for example will stop me from simply using a friends US address when signing up for this plan. I doubt they’ll be monitoring where a user is located while using it, I think the only important thing to them is the address at sign up.

Subject: Evaluating laptop keyboards for jaws functionality

Hi All,

How do jaws users evaluate a keyboard on a laptop you are considering?
I'm talking about the presence (or absence) of keys that are necessary
to the functionality of jaws commands.

I received a new Lenovo Ideapad and was dismayed to realize that the
keyboard is missing not only the applications key but also the
dedicated home, end, page up and page down keys. Strangely, my old
Lenovo, the one I am typing this message on, has all these keys so it
never occurred to me to try and verify that the new one would also.
But now I'm wondering, how do you check the keyboard specs when
ordering a new laptop that you haven't actually had your hands on?

Before someone suggests an external keyboard let me say that I require
the portability of a laptop that doesn't necessitate dragging around
an extra keyboard. I also don't really want to remap a bunch of keys
to accomplish everyday functions.

So what do people suggest? Do I really have to drag myself over to
microcenter or some other store so I can actually touch the laptop I'm
considering? Is there another way?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Re: Evaluating laptop keyboards for jaws functionality

The Asus ZenBook is one I'm considering. I can live with a 15 inch
model for the better keyboard. I don't carry my laptop around all that
often, but sometimes when I attend conferences the portability is
essential. So for those situations a good keyboard is a must.

Are you happy with the ZenBook overall?
