the way to manage text boxes is to Press control-shift-o so JAWS will treat them as 'objects'. Each text box will be placed into a list. Down arrow through the list and JAWS will read most if not all of the text box. If you want to be sure you have read the whole thing, press enter on it to open it.
Be aware that all the text will be selected, so if you press any key the selected text will disappear. Now you are trapped in the text box the only way to get out is either to close the document or to make the control-shift-o list again and then press escape.
When you open a document, one clue that there might be text boxes is that JAWS will report something like "ten objects". these might be graphics, pictures, any number of things ... or they might be text boxes. the only way to know is to make the list with control-shift-o and see what you get.

Hi, everyone.

In my new position as a University Department Head, I have run into a problem that I don't know how to solve.

Many of the report forms that I need to prepare have text boxes, and I'm discovering that I can't read the text in those boxes.

As I arrow down through the form, my sighted assistant tells me that Jaws simply skips over the boxes, and goes onto the next numbered item. It's as if the text boxes aren't even there, even though they show up visually on the screen.

Does anyone have any thoughts as to how to deal with this problem?

At work, I am using Jaws 13 with Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010.

Hi,
I don't know about scripts for that client, but there's a client called QCast. It was developed by Christopher Toth. You do have to buy it though, but it's only ten dollars. It's fully accessible, and it can be used with Windows and Macs. The link is:

How to Get Number for Files in Folder, Please Read

Paul Bolduc
 

Good evening,



Before I went to the VA for computer training I could open a folder then by
reading line I could see by a number at the end of the line where this files
was located in regards to the rest of the files, hello.txt 12, then down
arrow would give me the next file and 13.



I don't know how a setting was changed, but now I only get the file name and
no number in regards to its location with all the other files.



Can somebody please inform me as to what setting I need to get working
again, Please. I've tried Quick settings and nothing does it there.



Thank you,



Have a great day,

I've become tired of the horrible conversion engine that ships with
Openbook. When I create an MP3 file from a text file using Freedom
Scientifics' audio creation feature, it refuses to honor contractions. For
example, we'll becomes well, he's becomes hes, won't becomes wont, she's
becomes shes. You get the idea. Also it will not honor the 0 second pause on
line breaks, so it's very choppy.

This happens with any of the voices.

Since I've reported this to FS more than twice in the past four years, and
over three sub-revisions of Openbook, and they have only given it lip
service, I think it's time to fish, or cut bait.

So does anyone know of a good program that will take a text file, and create
an MP3 or WAV file using Eloquence as the voice?

I already tried Ultra Hal and was very disappointed.

gPodder: Are Scripts Available?

Hi, everybody.

For several years, I used JuiceReceiver as the podcast client in any
situations where I did not want to depend on iTunes or my Apple
portable devices for managing podcasts. I loved Juice's simplicity
and seemingly total accessibility via JAWS' virtual cursor. For a
while, it even worked on my laptop after I had installed 64-bit
Windows 7 Professional. But following a total re-format of my system
and a reinstall of Windows, I have found that Juice no longer works,
and it's really not actively supported any more. So I decided to

While gPodder fundamentally works a lot like Juice did, I find it a

JAWS cursor, with almost no functional keyboard shortcuts that seem
workable if one is using a screen reader. Considering the popularity
