Actually, it looks like the Freedom Scientific Focus 40 Blue free seminars are on September 13th and 15th, a little bit better as it coincides closer to the start of classes for many.

To register, go to

http://www.freedomscientific.com/training/Free-Webinars.asp

and hit B until you hear "Register for free Focus 40 Blue braille display part 1" and/or "Part 2"

Hi does anyone have a resource on learning the jaws commands on the focus
blue keyboard that does a better job then the jaws documentation?

I cant seem to be able to follow the explination that jaws provides in the
help files.

It just does not make sense.



Thanks and sorry for the vague question.

You have to use the www.facebook.com site instead of the m.facebook.com
site. Also, you need to make use of the jaws curser. If you can, root the
jaws jaws curser to the pc curser. You have to move around a bit, but
eventually it works.

Hi some of you might know that it's possible to add a friend as a link in a
facebook post. The way it works is to place the @ sign in front of a persons
name e.g. @peeter Smith, almost the same as on twitter but then it opens a
drop down menu to show you the person you mentioned and you must click on
the name in the list. Have any of you tryed this with jaws, and how do you
click the name in the list? I mostly use m.facebook.com even on my pc
because it's most accessible with jaws but have tryed both sites and can't
click the name in the drop down menu.

safety first

Dorothy <dorothy.ingram-gorban@...>
 

I hope jjames will forgive me but some of you may be seeking safety, and
just to say we are thinking of you. Do not worry about Jaws, Doctor jaws
will look after him. take care of yourselves. Here in uk it is the usual
wet Bank holiday august weekend regards dorothy.


Re: boot into safe mode using jaws

Dorothy <dorothy.ingram-gorban@...>
 

I have read this with interest, since it is not the safe mode thatMs
outlook suggests if it is not turned off,just so and complains when next
the desktop is put on and suggest it run in safe mode. However since I
mentioned a while ago when my xp desktop seemingly died downloading jaws
and I called out a local engineer who said jaws 11 may have hit a poor patch
on the Hd, letme custom make you a windows 7,as it was newly out I did have
an external back up so he knew I had material stored off computer. Well a
couple of people I know said"he could have tried to repair it in safe mode",
so in that kind of safe mode how would he have gone about fixing my xp
desktop the easy thing of course was to say he could custom make me a
windows 7 pc for an astronomical price thanks dorothy

Subject: boot into safe mode using jaws

Hi every one

Please read all of this before carrying out the steps.

To save the guessing of when to hit f8 & so on to boot into safe
mode, you can do the following.
press windows r to open the run box
in the run box type, msconfig & press enter
the system configuration window will open
either shift tab once to get up into the tabs & use the right arrow,
or use control tab & find the boot tab
its called the Boot tab in windows 7, boot.ini tab in xp
once on the boot tab, start tabbing through the options & you will find
boot option Safe boot, you need to check this
then tab once more & you will find radio buttons
use the arrow keys to choose either minimal or network
again dont forget, if you choose network, while you are connected to
the internet you have no securety running.
now just tab to the ok button & hit the space bar.
on xp you will get a window saying need to restart, on windows 7 you
will not recieve this & need to restart the system yourself.
On xp when the system boots into safe mode you will here the windows
log on sound & then you will hear a ding sound,
the ding is a window stating you are in safe mode, just press enter to say
ok.
You will not get this ding sound in windows 7.
dont forget things in safe mode are a lot slower, so wait a while for
the desktop & so on to load before you try to start your screen reader.
In xp when you get your screen reader running you may find a system
configuration window saying, is in selective mode & so on, I normally
tab to never show this again & check it, then tab to ok
Once you are finished doing what you want to in safe mode, you need
to go back into msconfig into the boot tab & uncheck boot into safe mode.
If you dont do this, you will just keep starting up in safe mode.

Hope this helps....

and the persistence of the > than sign in the heart of the saved message?

if so you need a "Email stripper" similar to those set up for windows XP by folks.

there are a couple geared to working with the XP grade Email clients to be found on:

and probably a lot more of them for the later made clients on the web, especially at places like:

here you go, the first link below will turn off the unnecessary headers and the second link will put them back. you will have to restart eudora for the changes to take effect.

hmmm, here's how to do it using the eudora options links:

turn on the taboo headers (that is remove unnecessary headers)

<X-Eudora-Option:TabooHeaders="A,B,C,Co,DK,DE,Di,Do,E,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,Re,Se,Th,U,V,X-,Y,Z">

you must restart eudora for the change to take effect.

and to get the headers back:

<X-Eudora-Option:TabooHeaders="">

and of course eudora must be restarted. hope this helps.

Outlook 2007 Calendar and JAWS

Charlie Macdonald <charlie.mac@...>
 

Greetings: I've just started to use Outlook 2007 at work and having some
difficulty getting the calendar view set ... are there any suggested
settings for Outlook to make the calendar more responsive to JAWS .. For
example with view set to "week" I cannot move day to day with the right
arrow although to a sighted person using the right arrow does advance the
calendar but JAWS is stuck on the current day .. I called FS help desk and
the fellow on the desk had the same problem but could not help me.
I'm using the latest version of Jaws 12 and it's a vista operating system
...
Many thanks for any suggestions,
Regards,
Charlie.

Re: Need refresher on how to configure varous voices in Jaws 12withWindows 7

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Having just had my laptop "upgraded" to Windows 7, I'm in the same boat as is Tom.
I think, actually, there are two routes, with variations along the way.
You can create separate voice profiles indeed. Different profiles can employ different synthesizers. I now have a profile for Eloquence and one for Samantha of the Solo RealSpeak voices.
In addition, however, you can create a different voice scheme. I've done this principally by modifying and renaming schemes Freedom Scientific provides by default.
JAWS key plus alt plus S will get into the voice schemes. Here, you can set different voices for different items, including bold and so on.
Under the voice alias setting, you can create your own custom voice, combining one of the named voices with your own pitch and so on.
