moderated OE classic.

Hi all,

If you have OE classic, I have many questions for you, and if you can get back to me about this, I would appreciate it

I tried it a few years ago, when it was free, and spell check didn't work well etc.. So, here are my questions. How much does it cost?

Does it work with windows ten and jaws 2021beta?

Does spell check work well with it?

Is it hard to installs?

Where do you get it?

Is there any down side to the program?

Thangkas for your help on this. Jim.

sounds like there are two function call issues.

try press insert+windows+f4. this should unload and reload JAWS after a ten or so seconds.

if the problem remains, try restarting the computer. if the message persists, unload JAWS by pressing alt+f4, press windows+r, type jaws followed by the version number, followed by a space and a slash and the word default, and press enter. this loads JAWS with a diagnostic set of defaults. see if the message persists.

you mightt have to call FS to fix it:
727-803-8600 or 800-444-4443.

Have an annoying problem with Edge.  Using Jaws 2020, Win 7 and the
version of Edge that is supposed to work best with Win 7. When on a Web
site every time I press the enter key I get a long message about an
unknown function call followed by a long spelling out of letters and nu
numbers that occur too fast for me to recognize or copy.   Anyone know
how to cure this?  Thanks, Tom

Hi Sean,

 

This is Henry. I have to second that motion. I bought a Cisco kit from Ebay for under 400bucks. From the last time we spoke, I supplemented it with two wireless access points, an ASA firewall, and a catalyst switch and ISR router. For the server, I am using Microsoft server 2016 using the trial reset for 1080days or 3years of a fully working trial and JAWS with aremote license.

The latest version of Cisco packet Tracer is far more accessible than the older versions. You should contact the Cisco accessibility group team to get an update. They will help you in this device  accessibility@...  also I would suggest using hardware when you’re learning out as it gives you the best experience.

Hi all,

 

I have recently started a new job on an IT Networks team and am being encouraged by my employer to take a Cisco CCNA qualification as it will help massively with my future career in this field. I am interested in doing this, but the problem is that much of the Cisco content relies heavily on their Packet Tracer network simulation software.

 

When I first started at university around three years ago, our course also used a lot of the CCNA content and we tried back then using Packet Tracer with JAWS, but with no success. As soon as the program is launched, JAWS says nothing. When pressing tab or the arrow keys, nothing at all is spoken, not even "blank". Me and my tutors contacted Cisco in the hope that they could help or recommend an alternative, but they were less than helpful so we were left to find alternatives for ourselves, which we did. I studied the CCNA content and got my degree, but I'm not CCNA qualified on paper, plus the content changed at the start of this year, so I am now studying it again for work.

 

Three years later, things are no better with the latest version of Packet Tracer and JAWS 2020, and the alternative method I used at university (using physical devices instead of virtual ones) is not possible at work especially in the current situation. I have contacted Cisco again and this time they seem a little more helpful. They claim that they have tested Packet Tracer with JAWS 2020 and, in their words, "it works, but with some gaps" and they seem completely stuck for answers as to why it doesn't work with JAWS at all on my machine, but it does for them. They of course tried blaming the user at first, "Is your speech set to mute? Is your volume set to an audible level?" etc etc. It would be wrong for me to say that I'm a JAWS expert, but I'm certainly not a beginner. I have used JAWS for many years and am very familiar with it, but nothing I try makes any improvement with Packet Tracer.

 

The person who I have been in touch with from Cisco's accessibility team has now put me in touch with one of the Packet Tracer developers and I'm currently trying to arrange a call with them in the hope that we can figure this out, however I would like to know if I'm missing something with this.

 

Has anyone else had experience with Packet Tracer? If you have got it to work, any tips/workarounds would be hugely appreciated. Equally, if you have tried it out recently and have found it to be inaccessible, I would like to know so that I can provide as much detail as possible if/when I speak to Cisco.

 

Many thanks in advance for any help and comments.

Hello,

I’m using the most recent versions of Jaws2020 and MS word2016. When ever someone sent me a MS word file it is always in protected mode. A number of people that sent me the file didn’t send the file in protected mode. Is there a way to stop this from happening? To read it I have to move in and out of the window. I cannot save the file so I would copy it and paste it in another file. I was able to save attachments in Outlook. I still would like to be able to open the file from the email, read it and then save it.

Thanks,

Kevin
