Did she checked to see if the sound card is working? If so, she might want to use the DVD that she got from FS.

End Note? What is that? I have never heard of it. I would be interested in
any information someone has about this program and its usability with JAWS.

Do you mean programs like endnote?
I have at times used msword 2007 to do citations and get references right
but I haven't played with it enough to get it to work. Endnote is apparently
very good but I haven't tried it out for its accessibility capabilities, but
if anyone else has I'd love to hear a verdict. I found it tricky to get APA
to work with MSWord 2007/10 but I know it potentially does, so it was more
likely I was being daft, and I decided it would just be quicker to use my
own brain.
I just do it all from my head and I have never had any formatting problems
with it. I don't think it's valid to say "I can't do it because I'm blind"
but I do think it's valid to say "it's more difficult because I'm blind".
That doesn't mean we shouldn't try.

I wonder if Bryan carver director of technical support at the St. Petersburg address may help,he is Blind now but was once sighted. It is just a thought.He replied to me when other Fs techies did not or were not right i.e. Dan Clark and Eric damery, Bryan carver may understand.What do you have to lose? Dorothy

Many thanks it is a dell inspire windows 7 64 bit and it did have a Hd
failure after 10 months but the engineer a local man went over it all not
long ago, it has a Net gear router, and he replaced 1 wire the Phone wire,
regarding mother board, I think it is Ok, It is just one of those odd
things that happens I think. The xp laptop goes via a wireless connection
and both have jaws 12 on them and the person I emailed said it was not due
to dell being wary of new battery "just turn it off and reload" and it has
been ok since, computers just get things wrong at times. Regarding the fact
that jaws reads things wrongly, if set to white texton black, that is a
laptop problem the problem of white font on black background is a real
one,but on windows 7, is less of an issue. On laptop I used lunar for a
while to use in inverse mode,but I have removed it now, as the xp laptop is
old and doesnot have a lotof resources I just put up with the screen. That
problem was never solved by fs by the way.Magic was no good,Lunar a dolphin
product was. I see I have referred to 2 issues in one reply, sorry if it is
confusing! Dorothy .

Do you use a USB hub? If so it could be going bad. If not maybe the USB
controller on your mother board is causing the problem, or there is a
problem with the drivers. May have to remove the USB ports from device
manager and restart the pc so they re-install.

I wonder if this happens to anyone else. I have noticed if I put on my dell
windows 7 desktop using jaws 12, it loads up normally however I wait on
purpose not going to desktop,I have noticed in the morning if I do this and
wait Jaws will soon tell me what it is unhappy about.. Other day I am told
I am using an unknown device that it does not recognise a usb device. I
have not touched the delland no new device is on no wires are loose. I have
a laptop that I have treated to a new battery,I wonder if they are partof a
work group if it could have detected it, it is the right battery. I email a
friend who says"no it cannot be that,turn off the desktop and wait and
reload. I do this and all seems ok jaws does not mention any such thing
now. However now it says the screen resolution is not set at the very high
resolution it likes I have not altered it I turn off dell again and reload
it and this time no complaints, However I am baffled,Jaws I am sure cannot
be to blame it is being given information that is untrue There was no
unknown device at all if the resolution had altered it put itself right
However I cannot keep turning the computer on and off all day! any ideas?
thanks. Dorothy.

NO, I didn't take it that way at all. It is just nice to have something (a
tool) to use that would make the job just a tad easier. I think all students
should know the basic format of creating a citation for their papers, but
tools to make it easier is always nice.

Re: Citation managers that are accessible with JAWS

Alicia M. Starner <astarner@...>
 

Chris,

They have had some changes to the MLA format since the 90's that make it a
little bit tougher to get it right, but it can be done. It is a bit tedious
though and if there is something that will drastically reduce the amount of
time building a reference page (sorry I am an APA person), then why not use
it? The reference manual is set up very handy for people who have some
vision or for the sighted, but not very well for the totally blind. Just my
thoughts.

When i was in college in the 90s, MLA just involved in-text

Re: Citation managers that are accessible with JAWS

Citations have always been a pain for me whether
It's a work sited page for MLA or a bibliography for APA. What I've done in
the past is have someone help me format the page after I have all my
references in place. It does take some time, as it has to be formatted. My
college recently updated there library database and it is very extensive.
The searching is not all that hard with jaws, but they have a feature called
citation linker which formats the citation for the reference in whatever
format you choose. You can then copy and paste it into a word document. I
had a little help with this as it is not completely accessible, but it is
much less time consuming. By the way I go to California State Long Beach
University, but other colleges probably have similar tools. Hope this helps

I do everything but the spacing in the Works Cited page in MLA format.
I've never really had anyone describe all the rules in an easy to understand

format, and looking in my MLA book for the difference between formatting a
webpage that has an article from a webpage that just contains information
just takes way too many hours. My teacher helped me format my first paper by

hand and she stopped after the 7th reference, we had already spent around 5
hours going over the rule book.
It's possible, but impractical to do MLA formatting by hand...
Thanks,

Brandon, there is nothing stopping you correctly formatting your footnotes
or endnotes, bibliography etc. I hope you're not getting out of doing
that.

I went to school with a guy who would read his papers on tape because, he
claimed, he could not format them correctly. I had one of his proffs the
next year, and he was astonished my papers looked just fine, like everyone
else's. I had to kinda repair some damage there.

Brandon,

I too have a lot of trouble with hcitations, hence my question, but have you
tried looking at the Purdue OWL? It is a great resource for writing in APA
and MLA formats and is easy to understand. The link to the source is:

http://owl.english.purdue.edu/

I hope it helps you with MLA formatting and citation building. I still have
a lot of trouble, but at least this website gives me the basics.

Alicia

is it?
When i was in college in the 90s, MLA just involved in-text citations, and the works cited page involved some underlining and indenting with the tab key. It wasn't rocket science!!
