Hi Shannon,

 

Alt + F7 will work in Word, but I've never tried it in Outlook. It jumps to the next misspelt work, highlights is and opens the applications menu for it.

Hi

I have a payroll report that is several pages sometimes only 2 but as many as 20.  I need to print a hard copy of the last page.

When I use WE I do a  Mouse find for the word “All”. Then I would use the mouse to read the different radio selections down to the page range box. Now I know how many pages there are in the  document 1 – 8 or 1 – 15 however many there are, I arrowed back up to the page range selection and click that radio button tab once to the edit box and type the number of the last page and press enter to print.

I can’t figure out the quick way to do this with JAWS. The JAWS find command will not find all. It always fails.

It is a lot of tabbing to get to the radio buttons and the page range is just past that

 

Thanks for your time

Re: Problem selecting text from the screen, OCR won't work?

 

I agree with Tom, virtualizing the screen is a great tool, I use it in my accounting program, Sage 50,  quite a bit as well if I want to copy certain information. One example where I use it is for one of my suppliers where I order a lot and where I usually send an email with a list of invoices, their invoice and due dates and amounts and the total I need to pay. I go ahead in Sage 50 and tab through all the invoices I need to pay, then process the payment. Now I go and do a payment lookup which shows me a table of only the invoices I paid. Here I use the screen virtualization feature, copy that table and paste it into Notepad. In Notepad I add headings like Invoice Number, Invoice Date, Due Date and Amount and I separate each of these with a tab. I then put the information underneath in separate rows, again each piece is separated by a tab. When I am done I copy this entire Notepad page and paste it into Excel, putting the tabs causes the information to correctly get split up into columns, I can then add the total at the bottom. Once it’s done I again copy this Excel sheet by highlighting all the rows and columsn with data and I paste it into my email in Outlook where it correctly appears formatted as a table.

This sounds complicated and while it involves a few steps, it actually doesn’t take me long at all to do this.

I have a report opened to the display in the accounting program. It opens in another window.

I want to select the text to paste it in word.

I can read the report with the invisible curser but not with the mouse, or pc curser.

 

I don’t know if or how the invisible curser selects text. I couldn’t get anything to paste into word.

I get the same with trying the window to OCR. There is nothing to read.

What could I be doing wrong?

Does OCR care which curser is active?

 

Yes, I know I could run this report as a pdf and save it somewhere and then open it in Adobi reader to select the text but I thought just steeling it from the screen would be quicker and less messy.

 

Any ideas?

Hi Dave,

I was under the impression that Remote Desktop or Citrix access was only
possible with Jaws Pro, but that is not the case. In order to clarify I just
called VFO and asked and I was told that yes, both versions have exactly the
same features and the difference at this point is strictly a licensing
issue. Basically Jaws Home is meant if you own all the equipment. I
explained to the sale guy that I am self-employed and while I sometimes use
Remote Desktop to connect to my computer at work, it still is my computer
and he seemed to think that in this case there should be no problem if I
downgraded from Jaws Pro to Jaws Home. If, however, you were to connect to a
computer or server from your own computer but the computer at the remote end
was owned by your employer then really you should have a Jaws Pro license.
I actually just renewed my Jaws Pro SMA not that long ago, here in Canada I
have to do this via a reseller/VFO Partner called Canadianlog, but next time
when it's time to renew I will most likely request to be downgraded to Jaws
Home and pay the lower price for that SMA. According to the Jaws website,
Jaws Home if you buy it new at the regular price is $900 and the SMA if you
buy it at the same time and then continue to keep it up is $120. Jaws Pro is
$200 more, $1,100 to buy and the SMA is also $200, so $80 more for the SMA.
I don't blame Jaws for doing this because a company who buys Jaws may have
more than one blind user, they may require more tech support if their IT
person who may know nothing about Jaws has to install and configure it and
so on. I'm sure if some company approached VFO with a request for 50 copies
of Jaws that VFO may give them a volume license discount, but of course that
is just speculation and I don't think one can compare the volume license
program of Microsoft for Windows or Office to that of Jaws which is a
specialty piece of software and even most very large companies won't need
5000 licenses like they may with Windows.
So, in short, if you own your own equipment and don't install Jaws on
somebody elses computers Jaws Home is just fine and Remote access in fact is
also available for Jaws Home, it is associated with an additional cost, but
since I bought it a long time ago I forgot to ask how much it would be if
you bought it now. Fact is that most regular users who have Jaws Home would
not need it. You still have Jaws Tandem access which can also be used as
long as you have somebody on the other side who can initiate the connection.

Sieghard

The only thing, I don't think you can pay $5 a month, I think you have to
pay $120.00 in one whack, which is very hard for some people, who might
find it easier to pay $5 a month. However, logistically, $5 a month would
cost FVO more than $120 every two years - cost in terms of logistics,

Not sure how that works and if you can even buy single upgrades.
Given that if you have Jaws Home maintaining an SMA costs you all of $5 a
month I don't know why you wouldn't simply buy the SMA every two years.
It's I think $120 every two years and you get two major versions, so it's
$60 per version. Jaws unlike NVDA is not a nonprofit organisation and as a
business owner myself I definitely don't begrudge them this relatively
minor amount of money. I know some people who don't work and are on some
sort of assistance feel this is a heartship, but $5 a month I don't think
can be considered a heartship as most of us spend this and more on al
sorts of incidental items whether it's a fancy coffee, a beer once a week
or cigarettes, in fact somebody who smokes usually wastes a lot more than
$5 a month.

Re: questions about jfw voice profiles and app settings

First create the voice profiles you want to use, assign them different
names. (Done under jaws+j Options -> Voices -> voice adjustment

Next, for each program you want to assign a non-default profile with
the program focused hit jaws+ctrl+s then tab to the 'For xxx' list
and select the profile to assign to that program. Hit enter and that
profile will be used for all instances of that program going forward.
Note that this doesn't really work for console programs that change
the title bar, console programs match on the window title rather than
the underlying program file name the way regular applications work.

Yes, I know I could run this report as a pdf and save it somewhere and then open it in Adobi reader to select the text but I thought just steeling it from the screen would be quicker and less messy.

 

Any ideas?

Other than to make sure your Window is maximized I don’t think there is much you can do.

Hello,

When I arrow down through the list of emails Jaws has stopped announcing the title of the email, and I need to press say line insert up arrow to hear it. This behavior comes and goes. Any suggestions as to how to remedy this, please?

Re: Jaws updates

 

Hi Dave,

I was under the impression that Remote Desktop or Citrix access was only possible with Jaws Pro, but that is not the case. In order to clarify I just called VFO and asked and I was told that yes, both versions have exactly the same features and the difference at this point is strictly a licensing issue. Basically Jaws Home is meant if you own all the equipment. I explained to the sale guy that I am self-employed and while I sometimes use Remote Desktop to connect to my computer at work, it still is my computer and he seemed to think that in this case there should be no problem if I downgraded from Jaws Pro to Jaws Home. If, however, you were to connect to a computer or server from your own computer but the computer at the remote end was owned by your employer then really you should have a Jaws Pro license.
I actually just renewed my Jaws Pro SMA not that long ago, here in Canada I have to do this via a reseller/VFO Partner called Canadianlog, but next time when it's time to renew I will most likely request to be downgraded to Jaws Home and pay the lower price for that SMA. According to the Jaws website, Jaws Home if you buy it new at the regular price is $900 and the SMA if you buy it at the same time and then continue to keep it up is $120. Jaws Pro is $200 more, $1,100 to buy and the SMA is also $200, so $80 more for the SMA. I don't blame Jaws for doing this because a company who buys Jaws may have more than one blind user, they may require more tech support if their IT person who may know nothing about Jaws has to install and configure it and so on. I'm sure if some company approached VFO with a request for 50 copies of Jaws that VFO may give them a volume license discount, but of course that is just speculation and I don't think one can compare the volume license program of Microsoft for Windows or Office to that of Jaws which is a specialty piece of software and even most very large companies won't need 5000 licenses like they may with Windows.
So, in short, if you own your own equipment and don't install Jaws on somebody elses computers Jaws Home is just fine and Remote access in fact is also available for Jaws Home, it is associated with an additional cost, but since I bought it a long time ago I forgot to ask how much it would be if you bought it now. Fact is that most regular users who have Jaws Home would not need it. You still have Jaws Tandem access which can also be used as long as you have somebody on the other side who can initiate the connection.

Regards,
Sieghard

Dave, that is definitely not correct, the SMA for Jaws Professional is more
expensive just as the software itself if you buy it for the first time is
more expensive.

Keep in mind the SMA for the home edition and Professional edition are
different. I think the $180 price is for the professional edition.

I gather you had no SMA's for Window-eyes?
Is this for two or three updates?
I can't imagine you went beyond the 30 or 60 days time limit folks are

I'd asked VFO for clarification.

The only thing, I don't think you can pay $5 a month, I think you have to
pay $120.00 in one whack, which is very hard for some people, who might
find it easier to pay $5 a month. However, logistically, $5 a month would
cost FVO more than $120 every two years - cost in terms of logistics,
processing, cost of processing, recording, etc.

Not sure how that works and if you can even buy single upgrades.
Given that if you have Jaws Home maintaining an SMA costs you all of $5 a
month I don't know why you wouldn't simply buy the SMA every two years.
It's I think $120 every two years and you get two major versions, so it's
$60 per version. Jaws unlike NVDA is not a nonprofit organisation and as a
business owner myself I definitely don't begrudge them this relatively
minor amount of money. I know some people who don't work and are on some
sort of assistance feel this is a heartship, but $5 a month I don't think
can be considered a heartship as most of us spend this and more on al
sorts of incidental items whether it's a fancy coffee, a beer once a week
or cigarettes, in fact somebody who smokes usually wastes a lot more than
$5 a month.

The Jaws/mouse could read that OCR attempt. So is that the way you read the convenient OCR Screen with the mouse?

Shannon,

 

First after you use convenient OCR with the Insert+Spacebar, O, then w...after it says finished and JAWS, have you tried using the JAWS cursor to see if anything was recognized? Sometimes not, depending on the program.

 

Here's a way-out idea...Using your invisible cursor, read line-by-line down the area of numbers you want to copy. Then without doing much else with reading, press Insert+Spacebar followed by H to get into the JAWS speech history. You can arrow up the list of what JAWS said, and when you reach the first line of numbers, start the highlighting process with spacebar+downarrow, until you have all the numbers of interest selected. Ctrl+C to copy, and Escape out of the JAWS speech history. Paste into your document-processing program of choice.
