Jaws accessible program to rip region coded DVD

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

I’m in search of a program that can rip DVDs with region codes. Is anyone aware of such a thing? The wife and I had a region code free DVD player for years, but that thing has long since died. We don’t want to buy a new DVD player for the odd-ball DVD she gets from Germany and figured it would make more sense to try to rip it for playback on other devices. Be it a computer or to burn on a new disk. We’ve tried Hand Break, but that doesn’t seem to work.

Again, to be clear, it needs to be able to bypass the region codes that restrict playback on devices in certain parts of the world. This is the particular issue we’re trying to overcome.

I’m a Jaws user, so anything that’s accessible would be preferred. Really though, just looking for something that will do the job.

Thanks,

Cristóbal

Hi, Sharon. To remove special characters with the Find/Replace in Notepad:

for page breaks type ^p in the Find box; for paragraph breaks use ^m

The Caret is the number six on the numbers row with the Shift key.

In the Replace box don't type anything. Then TAB and click Replace All to
remove all page or paragraph breaks

To close a pane,
1. press ctrl+spacebar (this opens a menu) 2. Arrow up or down to close.
3. press enter.

I don't think you can remove soft page breaks. The keystroke to insert, and
presumably locate, a hard page break is ctrl+enter.

He meant JAWS key plus three on the NumPad, not JAWS key plus three on the numbers row.

JAWS Key plus three on the NumPad reacts differently. It is like PageDown, it is not bypass.

If I pres Enter + T it reads the file name and whatever it's place in 13. And, when I press Enter + Tab I hear the same.

Re: How to make jaws read number of items

Dean Martineau <topdot@...>
 

I don't know yet how to make JAWS read the item counts automatically. Using 2019, with Details view as my choice, I can use insert+up arrow or insert+tab to get the information, and it is accurate. It might be interesting to try to analyze which settings on the View tab of the ribbon are different if you can't do this with those keystrokes.

Re: Excel 2016 and JAWS 2019 Always Crashing on Exit

Debby Hill
 

Hi Amanda,

 

Maybe you have already tried this, but have you gone to the file menu and exit and tried to get out from there? I remember a couple of years ago I had a similar problem with Acrobat professional. I think that is the way I had to exit because if I used alt+f4 everything crashed and I would have to restart the computer. That was before the days that JAWS could right itself.

 

Good luck!

Hi!

 

I am using JAWS 2019 with Excel 2016.  Every time I exit Excel (alt+F4) after saving my workbook (Controls), both Excel and JAWS crash.  I do not know which crashes first, if that matters.  JAWS automatically restarts.  Excel comes up with the dialogue box saying that the program has stopped working and asks me if I would like to restart the program.

 

Has anyone else experienced this?

Usually, you will see the FSCast notifications the first time you run JAWS

Once you dismissed it, you won't see it again until another update or

You can also do it by searching default settings for "FS", the

Best Screen Resolution for JAWS

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

 

On this subject see what JAWS technical support said, below.  I was interested about this.  because I was occasionally having some odd JAWS issues, I decided to check to see what my screen resolution was.  It was much higher than the 1024x768 JAWS recommends.  Changing my screen resolution to 1024x768 seems to result in better JAWS performance.

Hello Richard:

 

Thank you for contacting Vispero™ Technical Support.

I believe this is normal behavior in the Spellcheck dialog. Reading the Window with Insert + B reads all the buttons for me here.

 

The JAWS help topics list this in regards to the display adapter

“ A display adapter capable of at least 800 x 600 screen resolution with 16-bit color (1024 x 768 screen resolution with 32-bit color recommended)”

 

You can try lowering the resolution to see what that does, but I get the same behavior here.

Hi Jed,
as an alternative to using the Jaws cursor, you may be able to do some of
these things with Jaw's touch cursor. (See Jaw's help for details).
Are you using the n0gsg contact manager?
I had a quick look at this, and one way of adding a channel to a selected
zone is to double click the channel in the list. This means that the default
action of an item in the list is to add the channel to the zone. So you
could do the same using the touch cursor. In the following I'll be using the
desktop Jaws keystrokes for the touch cursor.
1. Select the channel.
2. Press shift + numpad plus to switch to the Touch cursor.
3. Press Spacebar or Enter to execute the default action, which is to add
the channel.
4. Press numpad plus twice quickly to switch back to the PC cursor.

zone in the radio, and access the channels that i need to add. The
way i did it in the past on my old laptop, i go to the channel that i
want to add, route jaws to pc, and do a right mouse click. Now when i
route the jaws to PC, if you're looking at it visually on the screen,
the cursor jumps up several places on the screen and as a result it
highlights the wrong channel. This never use to happen on my other
laptop. I'm running the same version of the software as well as the
same version of jaws on both machines, both running win 10. I can't
think of anything that would make this happen.
Today, we shut down jaws, and i had someone just do a right mouse
click on the right channel, and the cursor didn't jump up several
places, it highlighted the correct channel. Any ideas here guys?

Thanks,
Jed

Thanks, Larry.

I went into Jaws settings and disabled the auto FS Cast announcements, so
we'll see if the change sticks.

If not, I'll wait for the next time one comes up, and disable them at that
point.

Tom,
Usually, you will see the FSCast notifications the first time you run JAWS
with a new version. So for instance, if you have JAWS 2018 open for the
first time that box will come up.
Once you dismissed it, you won't see it again until another update or
version is installed.

I shut down and re-booted my computer for another reason, and this
time, when Jaws opened, I did not get the FS podcast notification.

I wonder if it just comes upp periodically?

I've looked for default settings, but can't seem to find them in the
Jaws menus.

If you can tell me where I can find them, I'll make the change that way.

When it first comes up you Shift+Tab once to Not show this in the
future, might be slightly different wording, but it's simply a
checkbox, check it and tab to OK.
You can also do it by searching default settings for "FS", the
following is the only option which shows up:
Notify about new FSCasts not checked
Miscellaneous- that means it's in Settings under the Miscellaneous group.

Hello, everyone.

I'm setting up a new Windows 10 computer with Jaws, and would like to
know how to disable the automatic FS Cast announcements.

I have other ways of getting this information, and am trying to
simplify things as much as possible.

I'll likely have more questions as I continue the computer setup
process, but, I promise, I'll try to keep my questions to a minimum.

Thank you!
