Programming Language

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I hope that some of you fellow JAWS members might have an easy solution to this problem I'm having. I am a beginner at computer programming, and I want to make a program with a language that is not only accessible to screenreaders like JAWS, but is universal across Mac and Windows operating systems. I want to learn how to program things like buttons, checkboxes, radio buttons, paragraphs, textboxes, sections, comboboxes, listboxes, tree views, progress bars, scroll bars, list views, and sliders. I'd like to try the C++ Programming Language, recommended to me by my friend, Markus Johnson (Yes, that's "Markus" with a "K", and not a "C"), but I'm not sure how to configure codes for things like buttons, checkboxes, listboxes, comboboxes, hotkeys, and radiobuttons. Do I just write these codes in a plain text editor like Notepad? I'm confused on this one! But another friend of mine, Marc-Pierre Verge, tells me I should use Python. Now I'm really confused! Which language would you recommend? The program that I'm making is an app that I like to call "Ceremony Script Generator". This is an app that contains fillable forms, then generates a finished script in paragraphs and sections. There are different ceremonies for which customers can design a script with wordings of their choice. Basically, with this program, you can generate scripts for Wedding ceremonies, Baptism/dedication/christening/naming ceremonies, and funeral ceremonies/memorial services. In this Email, I will attach an example of a ceremony I've made. This Email will also contain part of my soon-to-be program. Here are some examples of the App I want to make. These are in HTML, but I want to learn how to code them in a different programming language. If you open these in a plain text editor like Notepad, you'll be able to see the source code I've made. One thing I'd like to learn is how to hide a textbox ("Last Name For Couple") and show two other textboxes ("Last Name For Spouse 1" and "Last Name For Spouse 2") when a checkbox ("The Couple Plans To Use The Same Last Name After Marriage") is unchecked, and vice versa when the checkbox is checked. And here is an example of what I want to generate in paragraphs and sections when customers complete all the steps. Read the source code in either a web browser or a plain text editor, and you'll see what I'm trying to generate. I don't want to create a program for running on a website, but I want to create a program that runs within the operating system.

Re: Jaws not finding content in word 2016

Dr. Aleksander Pavkovic <a.pavkovic@...>
 

Of course, you can use it in text editors or word processors as well, but it will work reliably only within the current screen. It is sometimes useful, though, because it brings the cursor directly to the search result, no need to close the search window. However, I never use it in Word or editors.

Aleksander

as far as I know, JAWS search (Insert+CTRL+F) in Word or all program windows except the web-like ones (browser, PDF) only searches for strings on the current screen. Therefore, CTRL+F works better there because by default, this function searches for the string in the entire document.

Hi all,

The following problem is happening on 3 different computers running Jaws 18 last release on windows 10, and word 2016 office 365.

When I have a word document opened, and I press insert + control + F to find a string. When I press enter to start the find function, 90% of the times jaws says, string not found.

However I know that that string is there so I try to use the word find function, pressing control + F, then I press enter.

Yes, using the find function on word, I am finding strings that jaws  is not able to find.

What is happening here? Why the find function  in jaws is not working consistently?

Thanks for all,

Re: Disabling "copyright" symbol in Word 2016

Steve Griffiths
 


Hi Margaret,

 

There's two ways you can do this. First is easy but has to be done repeatedly, second is more long-winded but fixes it for good.

 

Easy way: whenever you do this and JAWS says "copyright", press Backspace once. When you press the right parenth key, Word changes what you've typed into the copyright symbol and JAWS echoes this. pressing Backspace immediately undoes the change.

 

More long-winded way: Press Alt, F, T to open the Options dialogue.

DownArrow to Proofing

Tab to AutoCorrect Options and press Enter to open the AutoCorrect dialogue

You should be in an edit area. Type (c), that's left parenth c right parenth

Tab to the Delete button and press it

OK out of both dialogues

You should find now typing (c) doesn't give you a copyright symbol at all.

 

Hope that helps,

Steve

Re: Using JAWS to download book from Audible.Com

paul lemm
 

Hi,

 

You need to  download the audible  manager from there website, that will allow you to then download the book you have purchased.  I haven’t used it for ages since I use the audible app on my IPhone to listen to all my audible books since I find it very accessible and with lots of features. If you do use the audible manager though I think from memory it asks when you install it how you will listen to the file, it may have a victor stream option on there, if not I think you can just choose to download it directly on to your PC and then transfer  it manually to your victor stream from there.  As I said though if you’ve got an iPhone I’d definitely recommend trying the audible app, I don’t have an android though so don’t know if the app is on that or not

As Mario says, often these stupid videos can't be stopped or the button to
stop them isn't a button and the video maybe so loud as to make it
impossible to find a way to stop it with Jaws. Only way I have found that
works is to use a USB headset or USB speaker which is its own sound device
and to route Jaws to this device in the Jaws settings. Then if a video plays
you can turn the volume way down or even mute the system volume without
effecting Jaws.

Hi all,

I am trying to read an article on the web. When the page loads an obnoxious
video starts playing and I can't hear JAWS read the article. I tried the
audio duck but it is not working or not enough. I didn't notice anything
significant. I could not find any button to stop the playback. I used the
mouse, navigation keys and the touch curser.

How do you stop this stuff?

This was Jaws 18 and internet explorer.

Thanks
