Actually, your screenreader’s virtual buffer will let you copy text that sighted people can’t normally copy from a webpage.

Only thing is, you will have to reformat it yourself afterwards.

Good morning friends,

Is there an easy fool proof way to copy content information from an internet site? I realize that web sites behave differently. So if there is more than one way to do that I would be interested.

Stay warm out there

Hi.
If you want to copy an entire page, ctrl-a will select everything, usually.

I'm not great at using any aspect of the computer, but just copied a long
page from a site. I hit the home key to get to the beginning of the first
line. Then use shift, down arrow to copy each line, then control C to copy.
Using latest Jaws and winddows 10.

Re: looking for others using Jaws 2019 and track changes in Word 2016

It worked for me yesterday with JAWS 2019 (January update) and a current installation of Microsoft Word for Office 365. I used Windows+semicolon and chose to review revisions. This gave me a list of the changes in the document.

Would like to talk offline. As far as I can tell, something has changed between Jaws 2018 and Jaws 2019 in how Jaws handles “track changes” in Word 2016. Check-in with Jaws tech support on several occasions hasn’t helped. I finally got my question escalated today, but I’m wondering if there is anyone out there who is also using track changes in Word with Jaws 2019. Please contact me at abower@.... Thanks. Once I get this sorted out, I’ll report to the group.

If applications are running more slowly than you would like, it would be best to find out why before investing in any new hardware.


If I recall correctly, Performance Monitor will show you how much your CPU, memory and storage are being used over time. Some of the same information is in Task Manager as well.

all depends on what you are doing. If you're into gaming on line real-time over the internet, then you need one heck of a lot more speed and memory. So it really depends. You're better off than if you still had an Apple II+ with 64k RAM and a 6052 processor.

 

What I'm saying is that this is a very open-ended question, and your answers will vary. For now, you have plenty, and actually more memory than I have, but then I'm a senior citizen.

Hi all, this is Michael. 

Today I checked the processor of my HP laptop and here is the information I get for the processor:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz   2.20 GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 8.00 GB

System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor 

Is 2.2 GHZ enough? and how fast can it run? 

All comment and answers are greatly appreciate it.

Hi,
That is a decent computer. With those specifications, you should not have any problem surfing the web and doing productivity tasks.
My question to you, is why do you ask? Is your computer not fast enough for your needs? Is it freezing? Is the start up time bothering you?

I have used many computers with similar specs like yours if not a bit lower and they were fine when using JAWS.

That isn’t really a question you should ask, especially the “how fast can it run”. How fast compared to what or doing what? The information you provided tells me you have an I5 processor and the number, 5200U, tells me it is a fifth generation processor. Currently we are on 8th generation processors with the 9th generation coming out soon. What you have is more than sufficient for most anything you would want to do, maybe if you were running complicated statistical or graphical design applications this might be a bit underpowered, but for office, the internet, email and all that sort of stuff it’s fine.

Asking if that is enough and how fast it can run is a bit like saying that you have a car with a 1.9 Liter engine and 110 Horsepower and whether that is enough and how fast it can go. The fact is that it can go faster than the speed limit on most highways allows (at least here in North America) and even in Germany where freeways don’t have a speed limit unless they do on certain stretches or it’s bumper to bumper traffic such an average engine can still go easily a hundred miles an hour. Can a high-end Mercedes or BMW go faster, sure it can, I once drove with a business associate on a rather empty freeway south of Munich in his 7-series BMW and he took the car up to 260 Km/h, approx.. 160 miles per hour.

In the same way an 8th or brand-new 9th generation I7 processor would of course be a lot faster, but processor speed alone does not make the day. The question I would ask is what issues you have and does your laptop have an SSD (solid state drive) or a traditional hard drive? If it has a hard drive then spending $100 or $150 to upgrade to a 500Gb SSD would give you a very significant performance boost.

Yes, I posted shortly after my original that it began working as soon as I sent a complaint to Vispero. I must have intimidated it into working.

I just tried area code lookup, currency conversion, Amazon product search and Wikipedia and all worked fine, I also use Chrome as my default browser.

As for currency conversion you just have to know the symbols of the currency, e.g. USD = US Dollar, CAD = Canadian Dollar, EUR = Euros and then type the amount followed by the currency you are converting from and the currency you are converting to. For example, if you want to know what $100 US is in Euros type 100 USD EUR.

I still prefer the Google method, you can type it in more natural language and if I don’t know a symbol I can just type the name, e.g. 100 Canadian Dollars in Mexican Pesos, but then I also have an iPhone and a Google Home speaker s asking is the easiest.

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1901.66 (January 2019)

 

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the December 2018 update and the January 2019 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page . You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

 

Add/Remove Vocalizer Expressive Voices

 

This new utility included in the latest releases of JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion provides a solution to seamlessly sample and install or remove the Vocalizer

Expressive 2 voices used by all three products. This avoids the need to download anything from external pages and makes the entire process much easier across all products. And remember, once voices are set up for one product, there is no need to install them again for the other products.

 

From the JAWS main window, press ALT+O to open the Options menu, expand the Voices submenu, and then select Add/Remove Voices to open the Add/Remove Vocalizer Expressive Voices utility.

 

This dialog includes:

• Language specific list of currently available Vocalizer Expressive 2 Premium voices.

• Ability to select and Install as many voices as you would like right from the list.

• See what voices are already installed as you review the list.

• Hear a sample of the currently focused voice in the list before deciding if you want to select it to be installed. To play a sample, just press ALT+P while focused on the voice name in the list.

• Option to uninstall one or more voices.

• Option to uninstall all voices.

• Option to uninstall only the compact voices that had been previously installed.

 

Note: If you remove a voice that is currently in use, your JAWS, Fusion, or ZoomText will continue to speak using that voice until you restart the software or reboot the computer. Once you restart, it will default to the next profile available.

If there are no more Vocalizer Expressive Voices available, JAWS and Fusion will default back to Eloquence.

 

In JAWS and Fusion, after installing a premium voice, a profile is created for each of those new individual voices which can be further customized using the Voice Adjustment dialog box. You can also easily switch between all the new voices by pressing CTRL+INSERT+S to open the Select a Voice Profile dialog box, pressing the first letter of the voice you want to use, and then pressing ENTER. If you prefer not to have a profile generated for each installed voice, open the Voice Adjustment dialog box and clear the "Enable Additional Voice Profiles for installed Vocalizer Expressive 2 voices" check box so that only the standard Vocalizer Expressive factory and user profiles are listed.

 

If you find that compact voice collections had previously been installed, there is also an option to remove all compact voices. This is especially beneficial for users of Fusion or ZoomText 2018 or later which installs dozens of the compact voices by default. If you do not need all of these voices and languages, this makes it easy to remove all compact voices at once.

 

Improved Kindle Support

 

We have made several improvements to performance when using JAWS with the Kindle for PC app from Amazon. In particular, you can now do the following while reading a book:

 

• Use U  or SHIFT+U  to move to the next or prior link in a book.

• Use N  or SHIFT+N  to move to the next or prior block of text that is not a link.

• Use INSERT+UP ARROW  or INSERT+NUM PAD 5  twice quickly to spell the current line or word just like in other applications.

• Press INSERT+PAGE DOWN to read the Kindle status bar.

 

In addition, JAWS now announces when you move to a new page while reading.

 

Other Changes

 

• In a Remote Desktop or Citrix connection, resolved an issue with speech not being interrupted as expected when pressing CTRL  or when typing.

• JAWS now correctly reads emojis in messages you receive in Outlook.

• Resolved an issue with JAWS not reading as expected when attempting to select an address from the Autocomplete list in an Outlook message.

• When switching views in the Outlook calendar, removed extraneous speech so that only details for the current view are announced.

• You can now configure whether or not levels are announced when navigating Word documents or Outlook emails, such as when moving in and out of lists. To toggle this feature, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V ) and navigate to "Outline Level Indication."

• If you hear the buzzer sound while typing in Word or Outlook to indicate a misspelled word, when you manually correct or delete the word, JAWS now plays a ding sound to indicate the error has been corrected. With this feature enabled, JAWS also indicates spelling errors in documents as you navigate. If you prefer not to have JAWS indicate misspellings as you navigate, or you want to know about spelling errors, but you do not want to be alerted as you

type and make a correction, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V ), turn off the "Spelling Buzzer on mistyped words" option, and then you will be able to configure the "Spelling Error Detection" setting.

• When attempting to insert a symbol in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected while navigating the available symbols.

• Resolved issues with table navigation as well as columns not being reported correctly in certain non-uniform tables in Word.

• When doing a Say All ( INSERT+DOWN ARROW ) in Word 2013, addressed a customer reported issue where text was being skipped if a page break was encountered.

• Links selected in Research It results now open in the user's default web browser.

• Resolved a reported issue where position information in lists was not being announced as expected when the "Announce Position and Count when navigating in lists" option in the Configure Verbosity Levels section of Settings Center was disabled. When this option is off, JAWS should only announces position information when the list first gains focus or when pressing INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+TAB .

• Resolved customer reported issues in Adobe Reader where JAWS was repeating table column titles multiple times and was not always reading the first line of a new page if the previous page ended with a list.

• Addressed a reported issue in Adobe Reader where keystrokes such as CTRL+PAGE UP  or PAGE DOWN  to move by page were not working in certain PDF documents.

• Addressed a reported issue where JAWS language auto detection was not working in PDF documents.

• Addressed an issue in Chrome where bulleted list items were being shown with the bullet on a separate line from the content.

• When you activate the JAWS Quick Keys mode in Google Docs ( INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q ), you can now press M  or SHIFT+M  to move to the next or previous spelling error. In addition, you can now press QUESTION MARK  to display help for this layer.

• Resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "0 of minus 1" while navigating combo boxes in Internet Explorer or when using Virtual Ribbons in Office.

• Resolved reported issues using JAWS with the iManage desksite software.

• JAWS now includes a Czech language braille table which can be selected in the Computer Braille Tables dialog box in Settings Center.

Unload/reload is the only solution I have found.

I'm not great at using any aspect of the computer, but just copied a long page from a site. I hit the home key to get to the beginning of the first line. Then use shift, down arrow to copy each line, then control C to copy. Using latest Jaws and winddows 10.

Re: Jaws 2019 January update - ResearchIt Broken?

 

I just tried area code lookup, currency conversion, Amazon product search and Wikipedia and all worked fine, I also use Chrome as my default browser.

As for currency conversion you just have to know the symbols of the currency, e.g. USD = US Dollar, CAD = Canadian Dollar, EUR = Euros and then type the amount followed by the currency you are converting from and the currency you are converting to. For example, if you want to know what $100 US is in Euros type 100 USD EUR.

I still prefer the Google method, you can type it in more natural language and if I don’t know a symbol I can just type the name, e.g. 100 Canadian Dollars in Mexican Pesos, but then I also have an iPhone and a Google Home speaker s asking is the easiest.

In addition, JAWS now announces when you move to a new page while reading.

 

Other Changes

 

• In a Remote Desktop or Citrix connection, resolved an issue with speech not being interrupted as expected when pressing CTRL  or when typing.

• JAWS now correctly reads emojis in messages you receive in Outlook.

• Resolved an issue with JAWS not reading as expected when attempting to select an address from the Autocomplete list in an Outlook message.

• When switching views in the Outlook calendar, removed extraneous speech so that only details for the current view are announced.

• You can now configure whether or not levels are announced when navigating Word documents or Outlook emails, such as when moving in and out of lists. To toggle this feature, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V ) and navigate to "Outline Level Indication."

• If you hear the buzzer sound while typing in Word or Outlook to indicate a misspelled word, when you manually correct or delete the word, JAWS now plays a ding sound to indicate the error has been corrected. With this feature enabled, JAWS also indicates spelling errors in documents as you navigate. If you prefer not to have JAWS indicate misspellings as you navigate, or you want to know about spelling errors, but you do not want to be alerted as you

type and make a correction, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V ), turn off the "Spelling Buzzer on mistyped words" option, and then you will be able to configure the "Spelling Error Detection" setting.

• When attempting to insert a symbol in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected while navigating the available symbols.

• Resolved issues with table navigation as well as columns not being reported correctly in certain non-uniform tables in Word.

• When doing a Say All ( INSERT+DOWN ARROW ) in Word 2013, addressed a customer reported issue where text was being skipped if a page break was encountered.

• Links selected in Research It results now open in the user's default web browser.

• Resolved a reported issue where position information in lists was not being announced as expected when the "Announce Position and Count when navigating in lists" option in the Configure Verbosity Levels section of Settings Center was disabled. When this option is off, JAWS should only announces position information when the list first gains focus or when pressing INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+TAB .

• Resolved customer reported issues in Adobe Reader where JAWS was repeating table column titles multiple times and was not always reading the first line of a new page if the previous page ended with a list.

• Addressed a reported issue in Adobe Reader where keystrokes such as CTRL+PAGE UP  or PAGE DOWN  to move by page were not working in certain PDF documents.

• Addressed a reported issue where JAWS language auto detection was not working in PDF documents.

• Addressed an issue in Chrome where bulleted list items were being shown with the bullet on a separate line from the content.

• When you activate the JAWS Quick Keys mode in Google Docs ( INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q ), you can now press M  or SHIFT+M  to move to the next or previous spelling error. In addition, you can now press QUESTION MARK  to display help for this layer.

• Resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "0 of minus 1" while navigating combo boxes in Internet Explorer or when using Virtual Ribbons in Office.

• Resolved reported issues using JAWS with the iManage desksite software.

• JAWS now includes a Czech language braille table which can be selected in the Computer Braille Tables dialog box in Settings Center.

JAWS2019 is struggling with Word for me, as well  sometimes it reports that

a page is blank, when NVDA and Narrator can read a pageful of text.

Unload/reload is the only solution I have found.

Re: ResearchIt Currency Converter

 

You could just open your web browser, go to Google.com if that is not your home page and type your currency conversion request, e.g. 100 us dollars in euros or, if you know the currency symbols, you could simply type 100 usd in eur.

After pressing enter press the ‘h” quick nav key until you hear “Heading level 2, Currency Converter”, now down arrow and your result is right there. Of course if you have an iPhone, a Google Home speaker or an Amazon Echo probably works too, you could simply ask “Hey Google, how many Euros is 100 us dollars”.

Ya got to type it in exactly as it requires, based on the description field. I always have to look at that section before I try to use it.
