Good     morning everyone, 

 

Would anyone here have any updates or information, as too whether or not, The tandem issue that jaws was experiencing has gotten resolved?  I’m asking, because I may need them too do a tandem session on my computer, too   address a serial number license conflict issue  between my computer, and the Jaws  serial number  that was issued too the one that they gave my girlfriend.  We both have the yearly license, but their seems too be a mix up.

Hi Tom,
Brian Hartgen produced an excellent tutorial for the elBraille. It can be purchased at Hartgen.org. Good luck. Between this and the Users list, this should give you a great start in learning the unit.
Best,

Les

Hello, everyone.
 
I might be in a position to acquire an ELBraille/focus 40 fifth-generation note-taker/Braille Display unit, and am wondering two things:
 
1.  Is there an ElBraille e-mail list I can subscribe to?  I did a Google search, and found a few possibilities, but am not sure which list is best for the fifth-generation unit.
 
2.  Does anyone know of good “hands on” ElBraille tutorials?  Once again, I’ve found some ElBraille documentation on the Freedom Scientific web site, but I’m looking for more step-by-step tutorials on setting up the ElBraille, and on the ElBraille’s most important functions.

Question About 2022

clarence carter
 

I ran into a problem with JAWS hanging up. It would not speak at the desktop, and I could not get it to re-start.

 

I then did a JAWS repair. So far, I am OK. I just wonder if anybody had the same issue.

 

Windows 10 latest update

JAWS 2022 latest update

PS

I also noticed that it would get hung up when in Outlook 16.

 

What changes might I make to resolve this issue?

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,

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.

Am I the only one experiencing this, or can anyone obtain a meeting ID from JAWS Tandem? When I try, I get a "Cancel" button, and when I tab, I see Meeting ID progress, 0%. Then, 30 seconds later, I get an error message stating that JAWS Tandem could not connect, and an advisement to check my firewall.

Re: magic and jaws 2020

Milton Ota
 

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?
