Hi everyone, I’m coming in to this a bit late, but here’s my findings.

Spell Check is unreliable in MS-Word 2016 via the F7 method. For some reason I have not seen the described behavior on PC’s running the 365 version of MS-Word.
I’ve advised that clients learn the alt shift L method as a backup anyway, but this has been a problem for at least a year.

I’ve spoken to Vispero, and they say it’s a Microsoft problem, and Microsoft says it’s a Jaws issue.

Not sure what is different in 365’s version that has this problem fixed.

Can anyone confirm?

Alt F7 takes you to each misspelled word. Issue with this method is
that it opens the context menu with suggested changes in it. That
often works, but you have to press Escape once or twice to get out and
read the word in context if it's not obvious what word it is. I think
this is a Word Command, not a JAWS one, so it probably works well for
sighted users who can see the misspelled word and are ready to see the list of suggestions.

The reason it works differently in Word from Outlook is that Outlook
still uses the old dialog box interface, whereas Word has gone to a
ride side pane display for spell check.

Re: images in book

Kevin, When someone looked at the images, were they part of the diagram or were they captions below the image. If part of the interior of an image like a diagram, the original OCR engine may not have recognize them from lines or other details of the image. What is the source of the eBook, and is it a DAISY structured book?

If the images are diagrams or photos there may be nothing there for an OCR program to convert to text. Not knowing what the technical manual may cover, the images could be true handwriting meaning not a common script font. The case there would be the same. Wish I had better news or advice.

Hello, I’m using windows10, jaws 2018 and Vital Source to read a technical book which there are many figures that are images. Jaws is unable to read the images.

Re: images in book

The figure in a picture format does have text. You said I should OCR it before putting it into a document. The book is in electronic format. How would I be able to OCR a figure? Is it possible to put the cursor on the line where the figure exists and then activate the Jaws OCR? I know I could do that from outside a document.

Hi.

I don’t think JAWS oCR will work on word files like that.

You might have to take each of those images you copied and do the oCR process on them individually, as has been suggested.

Alternatively, a different piece of software might do the job better.

Something like Abbyy Finereader perhaps, but I don’t know as I still haven’t bought the programme.

Subject: images in book

 

Hello, I’m using windows10, jaws 2018 and Vital Source to read a technical book which there are many figures that are images. Jaws is unable to read the images. I copyed the image and put into a word file. I then put the cursor on the file name and used Jaws OCR. It wasn’t able to read anything. Should I try some other method? I should say Vital Source is an application where books can be placed. There are options to put book marks, notes and other options. Cheers, Kevin

Hi.

I don’t think JAWS oCR will work on word files like that.

You might have to take each of those images you copied and do the oCR process on them individually, as has been suggested.

Alternatively, a different piece of software might do the job better.

Something like Abbyy Finereader perhaps, but I don’t know as I still haven’t bought the programme.

CSS HTML Validator

Is anyone else using CSS HTML Validator?

I used it with Window-Eyes very successfully, but I cannot even get Jaws to read anything at all without someone sighted touching the mousepad.

If I activate the touch cursor, I can read one line, but that is it.

 

If anyone knows of any scripts, that would be great!

Perhaps try recognizing one image at a time?

 

Not heard of the program.

You might try Eclipse. I haven't used it for C++, but have used it for Java
and php.
It doesn't work perfectly with JAWS, but it is usable.

Yes. I downloaded Visual Studio Community 2015, as that's how high my
machine can go up to. Any higher updates would break compatibility with my
current configuration of JAWS 15! And no, I don't have the funds to upgrade
JAWS either.

just a guess, did you download the correct one?

from the below link/address, there are 3 editions to download:

a fully-featured IDE for students, open-source and individual developers
which is the free one, Visual Studio Professional 2017 and Visual Studio
Enterprise 2017 are both trial versions.

Hi, it's Annabelle.
Are there any IDE's out there for C++ development that are fully accessible
to screenreaders like JAWS? I've tried Visual Studio Community, but
unfortunately they deceived me when I downloaded it. The people at Microsoft
said it was free, but then after about 60 days, I found out it was actually
an evaluation, as a message came up saying "Your evaluation period has
expired." Even worse, my Microsoft account got suspended as a result of
so-called inactivity! I'd like to have an IDE which can compile programs for
all operating systems, won't install any bloatware, and most important of
all, won't take forever to install!
Visual Studio Community could compile for all operating systems, but
unfortunately it certainly succeeded in installing bloatware, and worst of
all, it took forever to install!


Re: Where can i start in creating jaws scripts for winzip!

To answer your older question first, make a detailed list of what you cannot do via standard Windows control navigation--tab key, arrow keys, shortcut keys, checkboxes  controllable with the spacebar, radio buttons and combo boxes navigable with arrow keys, menus that work in the standard way, etc., etc. Then, go through the manual and find out what functions you haven't discovered on your own, where they are, and, possibly with the help of a sighted assisstant, how to operate or perform those inaccessible functions. Then, use a tool like BX Toolbox or JAWS' own built-in window discovery tool, formerly known as the home row utilities, or even Windig, all of which will give you a hierarchy of JAWS-accessible elements, window names, window classes, control ID's, and other things you'll need in order to code your script's functions and features. This is basic programming 101.


To answer your question about labeling graphics, if the graphic in question has a tool tip, the JAWS Graphics Labeler will do the job for you.

Sometimes the menu bar at the top of a window will have a graphic associated with each pull-down menu, but since these graphics are just duplicates for activating the menus in question, they can be ignored. Sometimes there are graphics for specific functions, such as open, save, etc., which are also duplicated in menus and which usually have shortcut keys of their own, so these graphics can also be ignored since their functions are available elsewise. Finally, in my opinion, if there are no other graphics in a window that, when clicked, perform a function that's available via shortcut key or menu, then you don't have to bother labeling or scripting any graphics unless it's for completeness because they will in all likelihood never be used by a JAWS user.

Hi list members, what I'm finding out is that winzip has different things to choose from when trying to figure what needs to be opened and other things. I've also noticed that usually there are some graphics and they need to be labeled. When I perform the keystroke for the auto graphics labeler, no labels are labeled yet i'm sure that there are some graphics that need to be labeled. I'd like to be able to label these graphics as well as the buttons as well but I
not sure how to do this with out sighted assistance the version of winzip is 22. I got this version just before winzip 23 was released.

Hey.

Just curious, but why do you feel Winzip needs scripting?
