Re: Wiktionary doesn't work from Research It

Maybe you can let VFO, or a locally-authorized representative thereof, do an analysis of your system, if it's important to you. It might be as simple as a Tandem session.

Multiple JAWS Versions On One License

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hi, it's Annabelle.
Freedom Scientific just upgraded my license of JAWS to JAWS 15 for free, and I have a couple important questions. First of all, is it OK for me to have two versions of JAWS on the same machine? More importantly, is it OK to have two versions on the same license?

Re: Fax by email services?

 

I have the paid Myfax service (not sure if they offer anything for free), but with it I never even go to a website, it's all done by email. If I want to send a fax I simply send an email to the FaxNumber@MyFax.com and attach any files I want, they can be text files, Word or Excel files, PDF files, pictures etc. You can put a name or recipient into the Subject field and then just send the email. Anything you write into the email body field is sent as a separate page.
Incoming faxes are received by email as well and the fax is a PDF attachment as James already pointed out.

Regards,
Sieghard

I use MyFax, personally, and find it quite useable. The website's very accessible. Of course, you'll need some kind of OCR ability if you intend to receive faxes, as like most companies they send them to you as PDF images, but other than that it's perfect.

Re: Using Chat Windows with JAWS 18

Nancy B. Gibson
 

The system is called Revation Communicator. I think it's proprietary.

From what I gather, JAWS is there to read the database and follow my lead of what I need to look up or read on the computer. Narrator is following the phone/chat system in real time and advising me of what's going on. Ultimately, I'm supposed to keep track of 2 conversations/audio sources simultaneously -- like multi-tasking but I don't multi-task well that way.

Thanks for the input.

Nancy

This sounds like an issue for the IT department.There are so many
variables with a system like that.

What phone system is it? Is it proprietary?
Does it speak or does Jaws?
If Jaws is reading the chat window then speech history will have the
message. insert + spacebar then h.
Generally you dont want two screen readers running at the same time.

Since apparently I'm supposed to be able to listen to JAWS and the TTS at the same time, if I'm focusing on JAWS when a chat message comes in and is spoken by the TTS, is there a way to have the message reread so I can hear what I missed the first time?

Are there any command conflicts between JAWS and Narrator if they have to both run at the same time?

Hope that makes sense.

Re: Using Chat Windows with JAWS 18

Michael Mote
 

Hi Nancy! I think the answer depends on what you're using for your chat
program. I've seen the integration of the phone system with the chat
feature enabled before. Sometimes, you can set this up to display in
separate windows. Sometimes, you have to use F6 to move between the
different parts of the program. Perhaps, control tab would get you to the
chat window. I would have to know more about what type of program you're
using.

I used e-fax several years ago.

You receive an e-mail with information on incoming faxes and an link to
retreive it.
At that time they used .TIF format but their software was easy to use.

problem with Mail message rules in Outlook 2010

Shannon
 

Hello all.
I have several message rules set up in Outlook 2010. I went to use them to clean up my inbox this morning.

Using what I believe (but am not positive is a clean install of JAWS 18) I am unable to choose which rule to run.
When I go into Manage rules and alerts, and then Choose Run Now, I am taken to a page that has a list of all the rules I have created but JAWS will not read this list. I can choose to select all or deselect all with the buttons but I can't choose any particular rule. The jaws Key will read out a few but there are more that are not inside the box until you arrow down through the list. The Jaws key doesn’t report whether the items are checked or not.
What is wrong? Why can't I arrow down through this list and press space bar to check or uncheck the items I want?
How do I do this?
Thanks
Shannon


Non conforming table won't read field contents

Shannon
 

Hello,
I am working with our time keeping program. It is totally non-conforming. This is one that I have had to get third party scripts written for.
Here is my current issue and I don't know if it also needs scripting or if I just don't know how to make JAWS read.
I use Control tab to jump from a table into another table. The first two cells read when I tab to them but the next three do not read at all when I land in them
The first one has the job name and number. The second has the code for the work done. The third is a graphical holding place that shows different indicators, which I don't expect to read. The Fourth and fifth have the start and end times.
These are my problem. I need to know what time is the in and out. The arrow keys letter by letter will read the info but the info is not said when I land on it. Letter by letter is very inefficient.
The read cell doesn't work since this is not a recognized table. The insert Tab to read field and contents only tells me that it is an edit box. The up arrow actually will move me up and down in the table, not leaving me where I need to be.
Is there a setting that will tell Jaws to move the cursor to the next field and read the contents automatically?
Is there another set of keys that will read the current field?

Thanks
Shannon

If this has been covered in another thread please accept my apologies. I haven't been reading messages with generic titles like "a couple things" (not a real title recently).

Using Research It I can't get definitions from Research It. I've noticed this for the past three days or so.

When I press enter on it, it opens a different file or folder. This was a problem that would occur in Window-Eyes, but was easily resolved by placing the mouse pointer in one of the corners of the screen. I have not been able to make this stop in Jaws. Has anyone experienced this and been able to stop it from happening? Thank you for any help.
