JAWS with MS Publisher

Cheryl Locker
 

One of the students in our program will be in a computer class next year. The class will be using Microsoft Publisher, which I understand is not really accessible with JAWS.

Is anybody using this software with JAWS, with any success?

If not, any suggestions for programs that have similar features?

Thanks,
Cheryl

David sound advice to anyone but most of this I have already tried.
The touch pad is never on as when friends need to help me they just plug
in the mouse.
I have been on remote support and have had patches to try and fix the
problem but without success, so hope in future versions things might get
better.
My husband has the same set up on a desk top but doesn't have all the
issues I have on a laptop..
I can only conclude laptops are female and touchy.
Take care

Hi Hazel.
I don't know that I have the answer for you, but I have had a Toshiba
laptop
and I am now on my third Dell laptop and I have had the same problem with
all four of them with the curser jumping all over the place.

The keyboard on all my laptops were configured in the following way.
1. A small round button between and at the bottom of the G & H key's.
2. Below the space bar a right and left mouse click buttons.
3. Below those buttons the touchpad.
4. Below the touchpad, another right and left mouse click buttons.

Now, this is where it gets interesting. On the touchpad and that little
button between the G & H key's, if tapped, have the same effect as a mouse
click resulting in your curser being sent where ever.
In the touchpad settings, there are several options of which features to
turn off or on.
On some of my laptops, I have had to have sighted assistance to properly
set
these features.

On one of my laptops the vibration of typing on the keyboard would
activate
the mouse button.
May I suggest that you open a new document, type a sentence, know where
your
curser is and double tap the mouse pad and see if your curser has changed
locations.
If you are using an external keyboard, all the above do not apply.
If you are not using an external keyboard, you could give that a try.

Have you checked your display settings?
Have you contacted Jaws support?

I am convinced that there is a fix for this problem. On the positive side,
it produces patience.

Hello to all you Jaws users.
I have just joined the group and wonder how things are coming along
with the issue of the Jaws cursor moving all over the place .
I have used Jaws for some time and at present using version 13 on
Windows 7 but this aspect of the software is driving me crazy at times.
Are the latest versions any better as before spending out more money I
need to know if this has been taken into account .
Another very annoying thing is when you are writing anything and arrow
up to re read the words can be scrambled in which you have to abandon
and start again.
Surely software at high cost should have undertaken to assure these
basic functions work well.
Yes we have tried other screen readers but these have proved not to
our taste at all.
I hope to hear some positive feedback.
Take care
Hazel

I am talking about a stationary mouse, one that is not being used that is
plugged in via the USB port. One time I have three pages byped in the
middle of a sentence. The solution is to remove the mouse, or in the case
of my laptop, I cover the track pad. Some people turn off the track pad,
but I rather have the track pad available when my wife gets me out of

I've got a wireless mouse at home, which is always within easy reach but not
in the direct line of fire. However, my office mouse is a standard corded

never caused that kind of havoc.

This can be caused by your mouse. My desktop I always keep the mouse
unplugged. On my laptop I have a cover over the mouse pad, or whatever it
is called. So when I get in trouble and need my wife to bail me out, she
dcan plug in the mouse or flip the cover over on the laptop.
This solved my problems, and I do write a lot.

Hi and thanks for the response.
As for the cursor issues for example when doing any online shopping after
selecting item and adding to basket the site takes you to another page
before automatically going back to the original page only to find the cursor
is anywhere but where you left it.
Now comes writing .
On writing emails if I wished to arrow one line above to read or check
something on down arrowing the line below has scrambled all the words and on
long mails can misplace parts of paragraphs..
I have lost count of aborted messages because of this.
Hope this explains in more details.

Re: Removal of old JAWS versions

Dave Durber
 

Hello Bill:

Suggest to your friend, that he or she unload JAWS 14, load JAWS 11, then use the uninstall function for JAWS 11. When JAWS 11 has been uninstalled, they may need to restart their computer.

Follow the same procedure to uninstall JAWS 12 and JAWS 13.

When your friend has completed uninstalling the desired versions of JAWS, I would suggest running a program such as CCleaner, to remove any files and registry entries, which the uninstallation programs failed to remove.

HTH

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Hi Bill;
Are you going to eventually install JAWS a new?

Will we see you at Braille next tri-mester?

When removing old JAWS versions, should they be removed oldest version to newest version, or should the newest versions be removed first, then the older?

Kevin,

That is hardware-dependent.

My Dell Latitude uses Fn + F5 to rotate through possible combinations of
enabled and disabled.

My older Dell required that it be disabled in BIOS.

Others report being able to do it through Control Panel.

Hi and thanks for the response.
As for the cursor issues for example when doing any online shopping after
selecting item and adding to basket the site takes you to another page
before automatically going back to the original page only to find the cursor
is anywhere but where you left it.
Now comes writing .
On writing emails if I wished to arrow one line above to read or check
something on down arrowing the line below has scrambled all the words and on
long mails can misplace parts of paragraphs..
I have lost count of aborted messages because of this.
Hope this explains in more details.
Take care

Hello to all you Jaws users.
I have just joined the group and wonder how things are coming along
with the issue of the Jaws cursor moving all over the place .
I have used Jaws for some time and at present using version 13 on
Windows
7 but this aspect of the software is driving me crazy at times.
Are the latest versions any better as before spending out more money I
need to know if this has been taken into account .
Another very annoying thing is when you are writing anything and arrow
up to re read the words can be scrambled in which you have to abandon
and start again.
Surely software at high cost should have undertaken to assure these
basic functions work well.
Yes we have tried other screen readers but these have proved not to
our taste at all.
I hope to hear some positive feedback.
Take care
Hazel

I have actually had this issue in MS word as well. Sometimes I will be
typing a particular paragraph and then when I go to proof read it half of a
sentence is in the middle of another sentence.

Hi and thanks for the response.
As for the cursor issues for example when doing any online shopping after
selecting item and adding to basket the site takes you to another page
before automatically going back to the original page only to find the cursor
is anywhere but where you left it.
Now comes writing .
On writing emails if I wished to arrow one line above to read or check
something on down arrowing the line below has scrambled all the words and on
long mails can misplace parts of paragraphs..
I have lost count of aborted messages because of this.
Hope this explains in more details.
Take care
Hazel

Hello to all you Jaws users.
I have just joined the group and wonder how things are coming along
with the issue of the Jaws cursor moving all over the place .
I have used Jaws for some time and at present using version 13 on
Windows
7 but this aspect of the software is driving me crazy at times.
Are the latest versions any better as before spending out more money I
need to know if this has been taken into account .
Another very annoying thing is when you are writing anything and arrow
up to re read the words can be scrambled in which you have to abandon
and start again.
Surely software at high cost should have undertaken to assure these
basic functions work well.
Yes we have tried other screen readers but these have proved not to
our taste at all.
I hope to hear some positive feedback.
Take care
Hazel

Re: new member

David Greene <revdgreene@...>
 

Hi Hazel.
I don't know that I have the answer for you, but I have had a Toshiba laptop
and I am now on my third Dell laptop and I have had the same problem with
all four of them with the curser jumping all over the place.

The keyboard on all my laptops were configured in the following way.
1. A small round button between and at the bottom of the G & H key's.
2. Below the space bar a right and left mouse click buttons.
3. Below those buttons the touchpad.
4. Below the touchpad, another right and left mouse click buttons.

Now, this is where it gets interesting. On the touchpad and that little
button between the G & H key's, if tapped, have the same effect as a mouse
click resulting in your curser being sent where ever.
In the touchpad settings, there are several options of which features to
turn off or on.
On some of my laptops, I have had to have sighted assistance to properly set
these features.

On one of my laptops the vibration of typing on the keyboard would activate
the mouse button.
May I suggest that you open a new document, type a sentence, know where your
curser is and double tap the mouse pad and see if your curser has changed
locations.
If you are using an external keyboard, all the above do not apply.
If you are not using an external keyboard, you could give that a try.

Have you checked your display settings?
Have you contacted Jaws support?

I am convinced that there is a fix for this problem. On the positive side,
it produces patience.

Many moons ago I used a software called Guide which I thank for getting me up and running on a computer , very basic but this did not scrabble words , in fact it was brilliant for writing documents and the only reason we dumped it was the fact it was useless on the web and emailing.

Sometimes, its not the cursor, but a moving mouse on the site your trying to use.

Love the MS-word 2007 because it just decides to corrupt files (and back ups) when ever it likes!

Goodness, I must have been lucky! I know that some JAWS problems can be machine- or BIOS-specific. This Dell, for instance, doesn't support alternate Say All--not that that's a huge problem in a professional environment, but it's a fact, nonetheless.
