Hi, Carol. By turning on JAWS help, I believe he means the keystroke:
JAWS key plus the number one under the function keys.

This causes JAWS to tell you what a key or key combination does in JAWS.

Subject: Re: How to get Dec-TALK Express to work with JAWS Version 14 and later versions

Hello Tim:

For general use using JAWS, I intend using Eloquence. The reason why I wish
to use DEC-TALK Express, is when I wish to record media streams from the
internet or when I want to record media from an external media device,
before converting whichever media to a compressed format because, as you are
probably aware, if you only have one sound card and you are using a software
synthesizer, whichever screen-reader you are using, gets included along with
the recording you are wanting to record. In Windows XP, this generally did
not happen. For me, I used to be able to use JAWS with Eloquence, while I
was creating a recording and JAWS was not included in any recording.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Hi All,

What are the benefits of using a Dec-TALK Express over the modern options?
I have one sitting in a drawer, needing a repair to its power cord socket,
so if there is a good reason, I would get that fixed!

I go back to the 1980s, and my share of synthetic speech boards or
stand-alone devices, all of which were really bad by today's standards. I
thought I had the perfect device when I got a Dectalk. I then got the
then-new Audapter, created by Noel Runyun, and it was truly wonderful, fast,
responsive, stable.

Fast forward to when JAWS for Windows came out with that excellent built-in
Eloquence voice. For a while, the limited processing power and speed of
those earlier computers caused me to continue use of the Audapter; it is a
stand-alone device like the Dec-Talk, so it helped a lot to take the load
off the computer. But at some point, computers and Eloquence became, in my
humble opinion, much better than the Dec-Talk or the Audapter. After using
just Eloquence with JAWS for several years, I dug out the Audapter, and was
shocked by how it was surpassed by the modern technology.

So again, what is the advantage today in using the Dec-Talk?

Sincerely,
Tim Ford

Hello Dave,
Are you sure that you are using the correct com port for the DecTalk?
Have you attempted to restart JAWS? What occurs when you attempt to
find it in the voice adjustment dialog? I am using the latest version
of JAWS with a DecTalk Express on a Windows10 64bit. I am using it
with a serial to USB cable. I find that this set up works well, but
that once in a while on a web page JAWS will crash and I will need to
restart it.

Rasak,

          This can be done with the Find and Replace command, which you can open with CTRL+H.

          In the find field enter "^g" (a caret or circumflex, followed immediately by g without the quotes) and in the replace field enter nothing, since you're trying to remove the graphics.  The carat G represents any graphic (image) in the document.

          Hit ALT+A to activate the Replace All button and this should have removed all images in the file, leaving only text.  Then activate the close button on the Find and Replace dialog.

Can you give specific reasons?
I think your decision also needs to take into account the applications you use. I like Windows 10 a lot, but in my business for example I use Sage 50 as my accounting software and in Windows 7 I can use the Jaws cursor to look at certain information on the screen and, if need be, there are a few examples where I have to click on something which is only possible with the Jaws cursor.
I tried using Sage 50 with Windows 10 and as in many other situations, the Jaws cursor reads absolutely nothing. I can get to some of the information I need with the touch cursor, but I can't get to some other items so at this point this alone means that I would at least need one machine with Windows 7 so I can still run Sage 50 on that.
The Jaws cursor in Windows 10 is certainly a lot less useful so if you have applications where you need it then I would say it might be better to stick with Windows 7 for now.

Sieghard

Hi All,

What are the benefits of using a Dec-TALK Express over the modern options? I have one sitting in a drawer, needing a repair to its power cord socket, so if there is a good reason, I would get that fixed!

I go back to the 1980s, and my share of synthetic speech boards or stand-alone devices, all of which were really bad by today's standards. I thought I had the perfect device when I got a Dectalk. I then got the then-new Audapter, created by Noel Runyun, and it was truly wonderful, fast, responsive, stable.

Fast forward to when JAWS for Windows came out with that excellent built-in Eloquence voice. For a while, the limited processing power and speed of those earlier computers caused me to continue use of the Audapter; it is a stand-alone device like the Dec-Talk, so it helped a lot to take the load off the computer. But at some point, computers and Eloquence became, in my humble opinion, much better than the Dec-Talk or the Audapter. After using just Eloquence with JAWS for several years, I dug out the Audapter, and was shocked by how it was surpassed by the modern technology.

So again, what is the advantage today in using the Dec-Talk?

Sincerely,
Tim Ford

Hello Shai:

When I added the DEC-TALK Express in Windows 32 BIT, I accepted the only com port, which was com1, and accepted the default settings: 9600, n, 8, 1. I restarted JAWS 14. I looked in the list of synthesizers and did not find it listed there. I then restarted the computer, but, when I checked the list of synthesizers, there is no DEC-TALK Express.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Hello Dave,
Are you sure that you are using the correct com port for the DecTalk?
Have you attempted to restart JAWS? What occurs when you attempt to
find it in the voice adjustment dialog? I am using the latest version
of JAWS with a DecTalk Express on a Windows10 64bit. I am using it
with a serial to USB cable. I find that this set up works well, but
that once in a while on a web page JAWS will crash and I will need to
restart it.

Hello everyone:

I Have installed Windows 7 Professional 32 BIT on a PC.

I have a DEC-TALK Express external synthesizer which I would like to
use with JAWS Version 14., with a view to using it with the latest
version of JAWS in Windows 10 32 BIT, if the latest Version of JAWS
will support this synthesizer.

I connected the DEC-TALK Express to the on-board serial port. I used
the Synthesizer and Braill Manager in JAWS 14, to add the DEC-Talk
Express Synthesizer. However, when I accessed the Synthesizer
Submenue, under Utilities in JAWS 14, the DEC-TALK Express is not listed.

What do I have to do in order for JAWS 14 to send the speech output
to the DEC-TALK Express and to have the said synthesizer to appear in
the list of added synthesizers?

Thank you in anticipation for any and all suggestions.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Re: looking for Jaws keystroke for WE command

Carol Smith
 

Thank you.  I did figure that out.  I was responding to a couple of messages at the same time and did not include all of the information I was sent.  I tried it and routed the jaws cursor to the pc by using insert and the dash key on the top right of the numpad.  I will have to try your method, also.  I just tried insert-delete and was told this feature is only available in virtual document.  I pressed escape to put my mesage in virtual view and tried insert-delete and it said virtual cursor routed to pc.  Even when not in virtual view, insert plus numpad dash still says jaws is routed to pc, so I think that is the one I shall give my brother to use.  Thank you for the other information. 

Carol

Not numpad delete, it's Insert / Jaws key + delete.  This routes the virtual cursor to the PC cursor.

Thank you, Gentlemen.  I will send my brother your information.  One thing, though, I found that insert-Jawsdash routes Jaws to PC.  The numpad-delete removes characters or, if the numlock key is on, it adds a period.  This should be enough information for him to figure out what he wants to do.  Also, is it possible to move by small amounts when using the touch cursor, or is this something that only works with the Jaws cursor?

Hi,

In Window-Eyes, it was possible to move the mouse pointer by pixels.  My
brother has a web site where he must route the mouse to a certain letter
on the screen and then navigate 20 pixels upward in order to click on a
specific point on the screen.

example:

the word "name" is in position 340 (horizontal) and 444 (vertical)

The letter "e" in "name" is at position 356, 444

He needs to move the mouse from the e to position 356, 424 in order to
click the invisible button.

Is there a way he can do this with Jaws?  He is running Win10 and is
still learning how to get around with Jaws.  Thanks for any help.

Carol
