unknown function call to getlanguagecodeatcursor

MJ Williams <matthewjwilliams101@...>
 

Dear all,
When in table mode, pressing any key assigned to a navigation function returns the message
unknown function call to getlanguagecodeatcursor
before the cell content is read out.
Any idea what may be causing this?
Sincerely, Matt

So simple, and yet such a huge stumbling block... You are my daughter's new

Found the link too. The magic term to add in the search was "iOS".

Richard,
I had this problem also as I recently got a focus 14 display. The
trick is that you need to do a dots 7 or dot 8 cord, meaning with the
addition of the space bar for the commands to work. I don't have the
direct link, but if you do a google search for focus 40 ipod key
commands or something like that, freedom scientific has a whole
section that gives you all the special commands for the display and
idevice. Hope this helps

Subject: Focus 40 Blue

My daughter is trying to use a new generation Focus 40 Blue braille
display with an iPod. The Bluetooth connection seems to pair just
fine. She can type and read braille in non-contracted or contracted
mode, BUT neither backspace / delete (dot 7) or enter / line feed (dot 8)
seem to work.

We looked at the 8 dot braille mode setting on the iPod (in case it
was ignoring dots 7 and 8 because that mode was off). Didn't seem
likely, but I wanted to check all I could before I asked for help.
That seems to be un-contacted computer braille, so apparently that has
nothing to do with it.
Surely there is a simple way to have dots 7 and 8 work for those
functions with an iDevice just like one would with JAWS on a PC.

This is a brand new display fresh out of the box, so if there are any
settings to be made in the unit, they should all still be in factory
default positions. I saw something about some options which I think
are configured through JAWS when connected to a PC, but it would seem
unlikely that needs to be done for such a basic thing as using backspace
and enter.

I suspect we are overlooking some very basic settings issue. I know
this is a bit off topic, but maybe someone could help with this
off-list or point us to a list for Focus 40 Blue display users pairing
to iPods please? My daughter is only 10 and not very patient, so any
help might make this day a lot less long in our house, if you follow me...

Thanks!

Hi Luis,

I don't have any personal experience with the headsets information below
but, the last 1 might be your best bet.

This headset allows you to listen to both your computer and the telephone at
the same time.

Name, Dual Head Sets by Plantronics.
Model or part number SMH1783-11. Price $350.00 to $400.00.

Name of distributor, Phone supplements
Phone, 1-800-742-1800


I've used Plantronics for years. The newer models unplug part way down the
cord so you can switch out the end you need. I have an eighth inch plug on 1
side and a phone plug on the other. I believe the model line you are needing
is the Supra. Don't let someone talk you into a stereo set, it won't work.

Here is the contact info for a company called Headsets Direct. That's where
I got my last set from.

Keep in mind everyone doesn't understand what we need with a different cord
for each ear. I know the best person you will talk to there is Ed, in tech
support. Everyone is friendly, and I've never spoken with anyone that didn't
speak English clearly...

Hello Jim, I agree with others on this list that Plantronics equipment is
the way to go. For some reason buying from vendors is cheaper than buying
from Plantronics direct. SKC Communication Products Inc.

800 882 7779

SMH1783-11 headset special, price around $240.00I think

Also get the optional AC adapter 26503-01

If they ask who told you, Art from Pittsburgh.

Good luck.

Hello Mark,

Here is what you are looking for, I used these for many years earning a
living.
They are called "Dual Headsets".
One ear goes to your telephone, which has a small special box in-between
your telephone and the headphone jack, which allows you to control tone,
volume, mute and such, while the other ear goes directly to your computer
where you can hear your JAWS.

In every company I worked for, Humana Health Plans, The Miami-Herald
Newspaper, American Bankers, this is the Brand name of the Head Sets their
Customer Service Intake people used, the only difference being I used a
"Dual Channel" set, while the sighted folks used one channel sets.

The headset has a boom mike, it looks about like a coffee stirrer which you
speak into.

They are made of the highest quality material, very durable, yet very
comfortable, adjustable, they will send you parts, like the ear foam
cushions that get old after a year or so, immediately with a single
telephone call to their parts department.

Well, they are the top of the line.
And the price expresses that also.

Re: Unicode Characters

Soronel Haetir
 

There is a way to add Unicode characters to what jaws can speak when
you move character by character. It is also possible to add dictionary
entries for words containing such characters that you synthesizer
doesn't normally handle. However it is not really possible to provide
an automatic pronunciation guide for such characters so that words
containing them "just work".

Tigerfish Transcription. As I stated in a previous post, however,
I'm only using this software for their test. If I would be hired, I would
have to buy another transcription package.

Do you guys mind sharing who you are doing transcription work for? I'm
always looking for new contacts.

But, yes, you can set up the volume controls on the hot keys. No problem.

I'm trying to use Express Scribe, which is transcription software, with
JAWS. The volume controls in Express Scribe will not operate separately
from my speech output.



Short of buying another sound card, reassigning JAWS to it and trying to
have dictation going in one ear and computer speech into my other ear, is
there a way to separate the JAWS volume from the dictation volume?

I've already assigned hotkeys to the volume controls, but when I raise and
lower the volume, the JAWS volume goes up or down as well. I suppose if I
have to I'll type without being able to hear what I'm typing. It will be an
interesting experiment, considering I took dictation for 25 years and got
used to hearing each word as I typed it.

Express Scribe works well with Jaws, and you can adjust the volume
separately by using the hot keys. Go into Settings, and I think under
Playback, you can enable hot keys. Then you can assign the functions in the
combo list to various function keys in place of the defaults. E.g., I have
volume up as F4, and volume down as F5.

If you still have trouble, I'll try and write out specific instructions.

That's not the half of it. Express Scribe is the software this particular
company wants me to use just for a sample transcription because it's free.
If they would hire me, I need to buy Start Stop power play which is another
kettle of fish altogether.

I do transcription work too and used to run into that problem. I don't know
what to tell you, but it sounds like a bug with your transcription player.
I currently don't have a way to adjust the volume levels of the dictation
software player independently of the volume of JAWS on the system. I do
have a separate equalizer with ear buds that are "noise reducing" and the
sound quality is a little better, but it's painful when the volume level of
the dictation is so low that the only way to hear what's being said is to
turn up the volume on the system, which makes JAWS yell at me. I transcribe
with the typing echo off, but have to adjust the volume to proofread my
work. Different players have different controls. Hopefully, someone with
more expertise can help us both out.

Repairing a JAWS Installation

dan Kerstetter <dhk55@...>
 

First of all let me say I haven't used JAWS very often so my memory is a bit
rusty.



I'm having a problem with the demo of JAWS 14 and word 2007 on an XP
machine. Jaws will not let word open and if I open word in another screen
reader and switch to JAWS, word shuts down. Is there a way to repair my
JAWS installation to fix this problem?



Thanks in advance for any help.



Dan
