elbraille 40 commands?

Jessica D <jldail13@...>
 

Hi,
This Tuesday, I have an opertunity to ttest out an elbraille 40, to see if it meets my needs.

I'd like to learn more, before I receive my test unit.

How easy is it to learn, coming from a qwerty keyboard?

I already have a jaws license.

How can I copy my preferences to my sd card, and import them into jaws 2019 on the elbraille?

Thanks,
Jessica


entries in jaws dictionary

mike mcglashon
 

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.

I tried these steps, and they wouldn't work for me.

However, I turned the preview pane off in Windows Explorer using another set
of steps from another list member, and was successful.

However, my problems with smooth reading of long Microsoft Word documents
and e-mails when using the insert numpad 2 command continues, and I have now
reported it to Freedom Scientific.

I also continue to have my issue of Jaws bogging down after message 30 in a
long listview of e-mail messages.

Once again, I'm using Jaws 2019, and Microsoft Word and Outlook 2016 with
Office 365 on this Windows 7 Dell Lattitude computer.

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

In addition, I have noticed that Jaws now gives phonetics for the first

I seem to recall someone else having similar issues but am not sure how

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?

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.

Hi listers:

 

You know, I just took a calculator and compared what it would cost for a home user who was buying JAWS brand new, and keeping an SMA up-to-date, comparing that to the new subscription model.

 

So, if you buy JAWS new, for $900, then, you've got to pay $120 per 2 year period to keep the SMA up-to-date.  Comparing that to $90 per year, from what I can tell, it will take about 27 years before you end up paying more per year for the subscription than you would for keeping an SMA up-to-date.

 

And, will we be using JAWS in 27 years?

 

Cheers!

I believe that the only way Microsoft Edge will start automatically is if you have an account and password set up within Microsoft Edge. Even if this is the case, and Microsoft Edge starts automatically, this should not conflict with JAWS starting at login.

Subject: J2019 & Edge starting automatically--in conflict?

 

Listers: Running J2019 and W10 ver 1803.

 

Earlier I posted a message about some problems I was having with J2019 right after automatically loading at start up.

 

Recently, after an W1803 update, Edge has been loading automatically at start up. Could this create a conflict which would cause problems for J2019 loading properly?

 

Also, how does one stop Edge loading automatically?

Re: Two More Problems With Jaws 2019 and Outlook 2016

It probably isn’t the reason for your current problems with Outlook. What I would suggest is to load JAWS 2018, document if the problem exists in that version, then load JAWS 2019, document the problems, and report this to

Bill:

 

I found auto-preview in Outlook 2016, and it was off.

 

It is under arrangements in the View menu.

 

So, I don’t think this is my problem with the computer bogging down after arrowing through about 30 messages in a long list view.

 

Nor does it seem to be a contributor to my problem with Jaws skipping and repeating lines in an Outlook e-mail, and in a Word document.

 

I’m open to other suggestions anyone might have, and appreciate the help so far.

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.

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.

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

I use the "resume reading" feature quite frequently, and it works well for the most part. Occasionally, it places me a line or two above or below where I was when I closed the document, but I find that manageable.

The cool thing is that if you want to go back to where you stopped reading--as I often do with my students--just press the spacebar and it takes you there.

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?

In this particular document, it happens to have numerous headings and a

Hi,

Possibly because it is not compatible, as others have said. If not that, possibly because it is not activated. I sometimes have trouble here in that JAWS thinks my 40-minute mode has expired even though I have only just started up, which prevents activation from coming up. I would call Technical Support to get this problem resolved as it is a very cumbersome process to try and explain by email unless you know what you are doing.

Basically you would need to use an alternative screen reader and manually run the FS Activate program, which is located somewhere in Program Files.
