JFW 13 and esys braille displays

J.G
 

Hello,

does anybody know, how to pair JFW version 13 and Eurobraille ESYS braille display? I have searched this model between the braille displays, which are listed in the braille wizard, but it is not supported natively. should I install addon or driver from Eurobraille?

thanks for your reply.

best regards,
Jožef

Just guessing here, but there may not be an application key at all. I
just bought a laptop that doesn't have one and it's going back to the
seller.

As for the function keys, they may be set to perform hardware
functions rather than the application specific functions you would
expect. I'm not sure how you would change that on an HP laptop. But
you can get the app specific function by holding down the FN key while
pressing the function keys.

I hope this helps.

Re: New Jaws subscription plan, why US only?

Bernard Georgiou
 

Hi,


I agree with you, I bet they will not reply either as its wrong they don't offer the same prices worldwide as we all struggle no matter where we live. As a matter of interest, I also saw that in the USA they have 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?

Hi all
I sent a message to FS support asking why the new Jaws yearly subscription plan is for US customers only, but I haven’t received any reply yet. Your thoughts on this?

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: Need refresher on how to change Jaws verbosity level

Patrick Johnson
 

Tom,

Not quite answering your question but here are the steps to copy your
earlier settings to a new version of JAWS. These steps were sent to
me on a JAWS list earlier this week.


Try the following:
1. Open the Jaws context menu with, Insert / Jaws key + J.
2. Down arrow to, Utilities, and press enter.
3. Down arrow to, Import / Export submenu, and press enter.
4. Down arrow to, Migrate settings..., and press enter.
5. Now you'll have a combobox to choose which version of Jaws you
would like to migrate your settings from... After you choose which
Jaws version tab 1
time to, Yes, and press the spacebar and follow the prompts.

In Outlook, following your steps with the settings, the reading

I still hear the subject and message type read after hitting enter

uncheck, yet, I hear each time if the Email is HTML, plain text, etc.
I’m off to work, where I have Jaws 2018 and Windows 7 and outlook

Re: Evaluating laptop keyboards for jaws functionality [adding applications key]

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

I use a Lenovo L440, and I really like it. The one thing it lacks is the applications key. However, below are the steps to add this functionality to the laptop's printscreen key; which in its native functionality I don't think I have ever needed to use. This is from an email Ann wrote some time ago on this list. And, I suspect this works on any computer. So, this is a really easy and productive thing to do:

1. In any application (I used Eudora) press insert+0 to open the script manager.
2. Press control+shift+d to get to the default script manager.
3. Go to the bottom of the file, so it's easy to find and delete if you decide you don't like it.).
4. Type control+e to begin a new script.
5. Give it a name, no spaces: ApplicationsKey.
6. Tab. Can be attached to key, check it.
7. Tab, and type a synopsis
8. Tab again and type a fuller description.
9. Tab, and fill in a category (I chose system)
10. Tab. Assign to hotkey. (I pressed print screen).
11. Tab. Okay.
12. Control+s to compile.

Now you have this:

Script ApplicationsKey ()



EndScript

Which won't do a thing. You need to add the command {shift+f10} and compile again.

Now it looks like this:

Script ApplicationsKey ()

{shift+f10}

EndScript
Close the script manager and test. If it doesn't work the way you want, delete it.

HTH,
Richard

Subject: Evaluating laptop keyboards for jaws functionality

Hi All,

How do jaws users evaluate a keyboard on a laptop you are considering?
I'm talking about the presence (or absence) of keys that are necessary to the functionality of jaws commands.

I received a new Lenovo Ideapad and was dismayed to realize that the keyboard is missing not only the applications key but also the dedicated home, end, page up and page down keys. Strangely, my old Lenovo, the one I am typing this message on, has all these keys so it never occurred to me to try and verify that the new one would also.
But now I'm wondering, how do you check the keyboard specs when ordering a new laptop that you haven't actually had your hands on?

Before someone suggests an external keyboard let me say that I require the portability of a laptop that doesn't necessitate dragging around an extra keyboard. I also don't really want to remap a bunch of keys to accomplish everyday functions.

So what do people suggest? Do I really have to drag myself over to microcenter or some other store so I can actually touch the laptop I'm considering? Is there another way?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Kim

The baseline configuration enables various Windows security features, including virtualization-based security, attack surface reduction rules, network protection (blocking of known malicious Web sites), tighter user permissions, stronger BitLocker encryption, prevention of users from writing to unencrypted USB drives, etc.

Re: Jaws and Very Large PDF documents

Hope Williamson <isepic@...>
 

Having some experience with reading long legal documents just for fun, I'd say that you could try something like Q read. If you can extract a page from the document, is there a way to split it into smaller sizes? Here's a service that will do this, you just have to upload the file. They do have a desktop client it looks like. https://www.sodapdf.com/split-pdf//

    Also last time I tried it Q read did not work with the JAWS OCR features. It hasn't updated since then, so I doubt much has changed, then again I could be wrong.


Is there a reason to not upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

Kramlinger, Keith G., M.D.
 

Hi,

 

I use a work computer which is still running Windows 7. We have now, finally, been given an opportunity to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, with a no return to Windows 7 policy once upgraded.

 

Is there any reason to not upgrade to Windows 10? This will be an upgrade on an older computer, and not a replacement computer, if that would make a difference.

 

Using the latest JAWS.

 

Thanks in advance. Keith

CONTROL plus I does not open the bookmarks menu in the same way as CONTROL plus SHIFT plus B. When using CONTROL plus I, everything says either closed or open. With CONTROL plus SHIFT plus B, everything is open by default.

you don't need to open a context menu. and you can also use control i to open
the same bookmark menu with only 2 keys.
when you get to the bookmark you want to delete just press the delete key on
it. no context menu needed.

Try this:

1. Open Firefox.
2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus B to open Bookmarks.
3. Navigate to the bookmark you wish to delete.
4. Press SHIFT plus F10, and arrow down to Delete.
5. Press ENTER.

That's it. The bookmark is deleted.

Deleting a bookmark from the standard bookmarks menu won't work, no matter how
you attempt to delete it. You must open the Show All Bookmarks menu with
CONTROL plus SHIFT plus B first, before bookmarks may be deleted, either with
the Delete key, SHIFT plus F10, or Application key.

Let me see if I can explain it better. Shift f10 won’t work if you are trying
to right-click on a bookmark in the menu so you can get the context menu to
delete it. That’s the only place I’ve ever found where it doesn’t work, but
there it is.

Just guessing here, but there may not be an application key at all. I
just bought a laptop that doesn't have one and it's going back to the
seller.

As for the function keys, they may be set to perform hardware
functions rather than the application specific functions you would
expect. I'm not sure how you would change that on an HP laptop. But
you can get the app specific function by holding down the FN key while
pressing the function keys.

I hope this helps.

I am aware of this, but if you really want to have a sense of what you're deleting, some prefer to use a delete option rather than the delete key.
