Re: entries in jaws dictionary

mike mcglashon
 

Yes, stars do appear in the document.
With each case read,
There are generally three reporters to which the case is published.
As I read, I will see something like:
[*123] this represents the official reporter; (this is what I am most interested in);
[**123] this represents the highest unofficial reporter;
[***123] this represents the second level unofficial reporter;

I think I tried to do what you said once,
In that,
I put an entry in like this:
Actual word: [*1 replacement word: "official reporter page"
All jaws did at that point, was to say "official reporter page" it did not read the actual word which would have been [*123].
I expected jaws to say "official reporter page" and then the page number which would be the actual word.

Mike, do asterisks (AKA stars) appear any where else within the document? if not, you can make an entry with the actual word as an asterisk and the replacement word as page number. the result should say page number followed by the actual page number in the document when ever JAWS reads all or if you need to edit.

Mike,

No idea myself. I don't write scripts. I'm retired and only have time to do woodworking or trying to stay retired. Writing scripts sounds too much like programming, which I did plenty of when I was not retired.

Subject: entries in jaws dictionary


Hi guys:



I have a question regarding dictionary entries in jaws, 2019;

Here’s how it goes:

When I read court cases;

There are embedded page numbers within the case;

For instance,

A case might start on page 350 and go to 360;

Within the case, as one reads, he will find [*350), [*351), [*352], etc up to [*360].



What I would like to do,

Is when jaws sees these page number strings, [*3, where [*3 is part
of the
string for [*351];

I wish jaws to say, “official reporter page” and then the page numbers
within the brackets;

So, when jaws sees [*354], it will say “official reporter page 354”

I tried making entries for this, but jaws will say “official reporter
page” but it won’t say the page number within the brackets;

How do I put in the wildcard within the replacement word box so that
jaws
will say “official reporter page” and yet still read the original word that
it is on;



Better yet, instead of having jaws say “official reporter page”, I
have it
make a sound and yet still read the string of original text?



My goal is since I know that there is only one star (*) between the left
bracket and the beginning of the page number, I can make ten entries within
the dictionary,

All that either say “official page reporter” and then the original
string
saying the page number itself,

Or I can have jaws play a sound when it sees that string, and then still
say the actual word which is the page number of the reporter that I am on at
the time.



I hope I haven’t confused anyone?



Please advise as necessary.



Mike m.

Re: How do I make the "pane" with the "resume reading" button go away in MS Word 2016?

Richard Turner
 

Hi Richard, 

I found an article to edit the registry to get rid of the “pick up where you left off” feature.

If you are comfortable editing the registry, give this a try.  I’d backup the registry first even if you are comfortable doing this.

Good luck,

I just wait a moment and it goes away. I figured that was a "new feature" that is a tiny bit annoying since I usually don't want to resume reading. I have not checked to see if it is something to uncheck.

Have you googled it?

I haven't used an ElBraille, but, since it runs JAWS, you'll find that all

I would suggest familiarizing yourself with some of the commands, or taking

In step 3, when I press Alt O for other settings, nothing happens.

What am I missing?

Thanks Bill and everyone for your patience.

Hi, Tom. To turn off auto preview,

1. Open Outlook.
2. Press ALT plus V, followed by V.
3. Press ALT plus O for Other Settings.
4. TAB until you see a setting that reads:

Auto Preview Off, and make sure it is checked.

5. TAB to OK and press ENTER.
6. If necessary, TAB again to OK, and press ENTER.

Now Auto Preview should be turned off.

I just went into Jaws quick settings, and couldn’t find an option to
disable phoenetics.

Am I not going to the right place?

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.

Yeah, Bill, I have Outlook 2016 here with Office 365. This laptop is a windows 7 laptop.

Hopefully, there’s another way to turn off the preview pane, so I’ll wait to see if someone else has the correct procedure.

Re: Why am I hearing Inverted cap i at 1 and other such distracting things in Jaws 2019

Not sure Richard. I hear it too, and was thinking of exploring the dictionary manager to see if the answer could be found in there.
But I haven't begun to explore yet.

Maybe an example will help explain my question about Jaws saying inverted I in Jaws 2019.
In the Apple devices like iPhones the operating system is written with a small I and then capitalized OS, but Jaws is reading that as “Inverted cap I at 1 iOS,” when it starts a line.

Any ideas what the heck setting is causing this?

In Jaws 2018 I don’t hear things like this in Outlook messages or Word documents.
In 2019 I do. I imported my settings over from 2018.

Any experienced Jaws users have an idea where that might be coming from?
Thanks,
Richard

I use Firefox and after hitting insert+v the first thing is virtual cursor options.

Win 10, latest Firefox.

Hi Steve,

 

I'm sorry for assuming that you're running IE11, I should of asked what browser you're running from the start.  If you're running Firefox or Chrome, I don't know about other browsers, but these 2 don't have the options in the quick settings I described.

 

Take care.  Mike.  Go Rams!

Re: SMA vs. subscription pricing model

R&J
 

If a brand new JAWS user purchases the product outright for $900 and pays $60 per year for an SMA for 30 years, he will have spent $1,800 on the SMA making the total cost $2,700.

If he pays $90 per year for 30 years the total cost is the  same, however, the first method involves laying out $900 up  front and one is losing the interest he could have earned on the original outlay.

As I have been using this product since the mid 80's, it is far more economical for me to keep the SMA current.  If I were a new customer, I'd definitely go with the yearly license.
