Re: For a friend New desktop computer window 10 Jaws 17

Chris Hill
 

Well, my first question would be, which version of windows 10, it is changing about twice a year.  My second question would be, does a jaws 17 work on that new of a windows 10.  I suspect an upgrade  of jaws will be needed to fix the problem.

Hi Tom,
 
Here's where to go to turn off the phonetics.
From: Eric Damery
Go into the Settings Center, make sure that you get the Default file loaded (CTRL + SHIFT + D), and then search for "Phonetic". It should be the second
item in the list.
 
Eric
 
From: Hicks Steven (CORNWALL IT SERVICES) via Groups.Io
JAWS Key + 6, settings centre, shift+ctrl+d if you want to change the default behaviour.
In the search box, type Ph for Phonetic and you will find it in there.
I Have turned mine off as well.
Steven

Take care.  Mike.  Go Rams!

The phonetic thing is actually a new feature. It’s meant to help out folks who may have hearing issues or would like a little more help with distinguishing between letters. This feature is also present in the iOS platform.

You can go into Jaws settings and adjust the delay for when the phonetic pronunciation is spoken or disable it all together.

The other thing, I have no idea.

Hello, again, everyone.

 

I have discovered two more problems with Jaws 2019 and Outlook 2016 on my Windows 7 laptop.

 

When I use the insert numpad 2 command to read an entire message, Jaws skips parts of lines.  I can read the complete lines by arrowing down through the message, but, as you can imagine, this gets quite cumbersome.

 

In addition, I have noticed that Jaws now gives phonetics for the first letter of a word when I navigate through a message that I’m composing, and I also notice that Jaws sometimes speaks the last character I type again after several seconds.

 

I seem to recall someone else having similar issues but am not sure how or whether they got resolved.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Re: New Jaws subscription plan, why US only?

I think 150 pounds is a bit expensive, but Sight and Sound has to make
some money from selling JAWS.

I agree with you, I bet they will not reply either as its wrong they

an offer to renew their SMA licences, at a cost of US Dollars 60.00.
Here as of yesterday at Sight and Sound they quoted 150.00 pounds with
no upcoming specials envisaged. So how fair is that to us here?

As I see it, they are basically saying that us users outside the US don’t
really require a more affordable way to purchase Jaws and that they are
only giving this more affordable option to people in the US.

I’m also wondering what for example will stop me from simply using a
friends US address when signing up for this plan. I doubt they’ll be
monitoring where a user is located while using it, I think the only
important thing to them is the address at sign up.

Re: New Computer

Joseph Norton
 

Actually, there are cases where laptops will allow you to do a few f keys without using the function key.  Particularly, alt+f4 is sometimes allowed, but, not others.

 

Usually, you will need to have help going into the system’s bios menus to change the behavior, and this is usually not accessible.

 

I knew of one laptop where you could actually go into Windows mobility center and change this under Windows, but, I have never seen it like this since.

For starters you eather need to have someone go into the bios and change the defalt of the function keys.  They now are set for hp device operations, and you need to change it to just f keys.

 

If you do not do this then you would have to press the function key and along with your jaws key and f 7 to have the jaws action take place. And this would be for all f key operations.

I cannot seem to find the application key where in the past it has always been two keys to the right of the space bar. I have my keyboard set to laptop. I have had no luck trying to search these issues online. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, Tom. To turn off Phonetic Announcement:

 

1. Press INSERT plus six on the numbers row, not the NumPad.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load the default configuration of JAWS.

3. At the search box, type in, phonetic

4. Look for a selection which reads:

 

When pausing after character navigation, speak character phonetically,

 

5. Press the Space Bar until it says, Never.

6. TAB to OK, and press space to close.

 

Now, whenever you navigate characters with the Arrow keys, it won’t say the last character phonetically.

Hello, everyone.

I am not sure if this is totally Jaws related, so please bare with my
question here.

Recently, I have found that my computer boggs down when arrowing down
through a list of Outlook 2016 e-mail in-box messages. I find that, after I
get to approximately the 30th message in the listview, Jaws and my computer
boggs down to the point that I have to wait for one or two seconds to arrow
down to the next message. Right now I have about 45 messages in my inbox.

Has anyone else found this problem, and if so, what did you do to correct
it?

For the record, this problem has only started to occur recently. I'm using
Windows 7 with Jaws 2019 on a business-grade Dell laptop.

Lenovo Vantage is their application for configuring various settings and for updating firmware, drivers, etc.

With the touch cursor and the use of Tab/Shift-Tab for navigation, I can work my way through it for the most part. There is room for improvement, however. It's fundamentally a "modern" Windows application downloaded from the Microsoft Store.

Hi, Tom. My friend also had Avast antivirus, and used the tool to get rid of Avast. It says that it requires safe mode, but if you run it, it will still work, and will uninstall the antivirus program. Also, if using Windows 10, you can now go into safe mode with either Narrator or JAWS, and run programs in safe mode.

Unfortunately in my experience and according to  numerous messages on Jaws and tech lists this does not remove all traces of Avast. On my Win 7 computer I was never able to get rid of Avast until I had a complete reinstall of Win 7. Avast did have a free download of a program to get rid of what was left of a normal un install but it required going into safe mode.  Tom

Uninstalling Avast is not in any way different than any other program.  Open Control Panel, Programs and Features, select the program you wish to uninstall from the list, then bring up the context menu and select Uninstall from it.

Re: How to put a radio URL into a play list file, .?

Peter Tesar
 

I have found a web site that gives some of the BBC URL addresses.


http://www.suppertime.co.uk/blogmywiki/2015/04/updated-list-of-bbc-network-radio-urls/


I pasted each link into Notepad and saved it with the extension .m3u.

Now both Plextalk and Windows Media Player plays the broadcast for BBC1 thru BBC4.


Thanks  Peter T.

yes, they are.

yes, it is that simple, but I think the trick is to find out what the 
correct address should be to create a playlist or paste into the URL 
edit field, but as far as I know, that'll have to be provided by the 
broadcasting engineer/manager/director/administrator, in which case they 
will email you such a file if their method for streaming can support the 
use of PLS or M3U files. the M3U is the format that works in older media 
players and the PLS format is the format meant for modern 	players. . 
but modern players can play M3U playlists as well. and ASX is basically 
(dead) not used as it once was.

I'd also be interested to know if there is a way to find out what the 
correct address would be, not just for the BBC streams, but for any 
stream without having to ask the appropriate individuals.

Hello List,



I listen to Web radio on my Plextalk Linio. The .asx, .m3u and .pls
files were provided by Plextalk but, now the BBC files do not work.

A few years ago, the BBC announced a change to their streaming standard.
Can I create my own file to play on the Plextalk?

I have never intentionally played music on my computer, so I don’t know
much about Play Lists.

I noticed that the .asx, .m3u and .pls files are text files containing a
radio station URL. Perhaps these are called play list files.

How do I get the correct Web radio URL into these files? Is it as simple
as copying and pasting the URL into Notepad and saving it as a .m3u file?

Now I listen to the BBC online, using FireFox to go to this streaming site:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/bbc_world_service

I copied the address and pasted it into Notepad and into the Windows
Media Player URL box.

Using Notepad I saved the file with the file extension .m3u

but, it won’t play.

I also pasted this URL into the Windows Media Player URL box.

I get this message:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The player might not support
the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress
the file.

The .asx file contains this URL:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_london/

It no longer works.

I would like to listen to the BBC World Service on the PlexTalk.

I would appreciate some advice or Web page that would explain the
concepts of radio station addresses and how to create a file that will
play in the PlexTalk.

Thanks,

Peter T.
