I suspect they are not going to carry it after this.

 

Anyone interested, I would suggest checking to see if it is being discontinued.

Hi,

I just checked a vendor I know and trust.

Right now, Boundless Assistive Technology is selling it for $895.

http://www.boundlessat.com/Blindness/OCR-Scanning/ReadIt-Air

 

The list is $1795.

 

It has the full description.

Now that I think about it, I saw this demonstrated once and it was very impressive.

But, since I already had Openbook, I wasn’t interested.

Laura,

 

In addition to what George said, it is much faster than a scanner. You can also set it to automatically detect lack of motion, so that when you have a book under the camera, you can flip the page, wait a moment, and the camera clicks. Then flip the next page and wait. The scanning and OCR continue in the background until you're done. A very nice way to do it. I'm sure there is information on the FS VFO website on the Pearl camera.

IF it did work in the past, and your Pearl camera or scanner are turned on, then likely Openbook does not find your scanning device. Try closing Openbook, unplug the USB for scanning device, plug it back in, and then launch Openbook.

Hello,

 

I’m using Open Book version 9 and Jaws 18 …… I can’t get Open Book to scan a document.  Usually I open the program and press the space bar to scan.  When I press the space bar to scan it says “Open Book untitled one”.  If I press the space bar again it says “Acquisition canceled”.

 

Can anybody help? …… I’ve never had this problem before.

 

Thanks,

Re: How to choose voice

 

Hi Ted,

That is only partly correct. You can save a particular Vocalizer voice in voice settings so it shows up in the Control+Insert+s list. I have, for example, two separate german voices in that list and I can choose them there without ever having to open the Jaws settings.

Regards,
Sieghard

That switches synthesizers, if he wants to select voices within synths, he needs to look under voices-voice adjustment in the main JAWS menu.

hi there,
if you configured the voicess properly,
press ctrl insert s to bring up the list and, use up and down arro keys to select the voices, once you selected the voice, just press enter to activate the voice.

I hope, I am cleare.

Laura,

 

IF it did work in the past, and your Pearl camera or scanner are turned on, then likely Openbook does not find your scanning device. Try closing Openbook, unplug the USB for scanning device, plug it back in, and then launch Openbook.

Hello,

 

I’m using Open Book version 9 and Jaws 18 …… I can’t get Open Book to scan a document.  Usually I open the program and press the space bar to scan.  When I press the space bar to scan it says “Open Book untitled one”.  If I press the space bar again it says “Acquisition canceled”.

 

Can anybody help? …… I’ve never had this problem before.

 

Thanks,

Laura

I just looked at the web site for Readit Air, but they don’t mention a price.

If someone already has Openbook, and since Openbook works fine with Jaws, I’m not sure anyone will want to buy another program/device.

Here is the link to the page:

Laura,

 

In addition to what George said, it is much faster than a scanner. You can also set it to automatically detect lack of motion, so that when you have a book under the camera, you can flip the page, wait a moment, and the camera clicks. Then flip the next page and wait. The scanning and OCR continue in the background until you're done. A very nice way to do it. I'm sure there is information on the FS VFO website on the Pearl camera.

Re: Anyone use NoteTab Pro as a text editor?

I’m using Vocalizer 2 Tom.

I am not sure of the exact Windows 10 version, other than the Creator’s Edition or whatever it is called.

It is NoteTab Pro 7.2.

If I just open the speech screen with insert+control+s and hit escape, it reads fine.  I don’t have to change voices.

Or, unloading and reloading Jaws.

But I have to do some extra step to get it to read.

Very strange.

When I open a txt file in NoteTab Pro, Jaws doesn’t read anything.

Changed cursors from PC to Jaws doesn’t seem to do anything.

If I unload Jaws with insert+f4 and launch it again while the document is open in NoteTab pro, then it reads just fine.

I have noticed that sometimes JAWS will speak the percentage of completion

on this? Is my problem a screen resolution or color setting, or do I need to
get my hands dirty (ha ha) and write a script for it?

What version of Windows are you using with OB 9 and JAWS 18?  Just curious.

 

Have a great day!

Hello,

 

I’m using Open Book version 9 and Jaws 18 …… I can’t get Open Book to scan a document.  Usually I open the program and press the space bar to scan.  When I press the space bar to scan it says “Open Book untitled one”.  If I press the space bar again it says “Acquisition canceled”.

 

Can anybody help? …… I’ve never had this problem before.

 

Thanks,

Laura

 

 

Anyone use NoteTab Pro as a text editor?

Richard Turner
 

I’ve used NoteTab Pro as my primary txt file editor and also my HTML editor for many years with Window-eyes.

 

Now that I’m using JAWS 18, I’m finding an issue.

 

When I open a txt file in NoteTab Pro, Jaws doesn’t read anything.

Changed cursors from PC to Jaws doesn’t seem to do anything.

If I unload Jaws with insert+f4 and launch it again while the document is open in NoteTab pro, then it reads just fine.

 

Anyone have a clue what is going on and what I need to do to have it read fine when I open the file in the first place?

 

Thanks,

Richard

hi there,
if you configured the voicess properly,
press ctrl insert s to bring up the list and, use up and down arro
keys to select the voices, once you selected the voice, just press
enter to activate the voice.

I hope, I am cleare.

Re: visual studio 2017

Hi Soronel,
But the applications developed here offers the correct information's for all controls.properties label? In previous versions of vs I found that sometimes no matter the way how I set upped the label properties of some controls, jaws wasn't able to catch this information. Especially in apps developed in VB and VC.
Thank you so much,

Thank you so much,

It's usable, in a lot of ways I would say it's not as good as vs2015 was at least when using it with jaws. For instance, in vs2017 the edit fields in the project wizard were voiced as edit fields (echo as you arrow back and forth) but that doesn't work in 2017 - even after adding a profile override to configNames.ini.

That being said, at least when using visual c++ the compiler is a real step forward. It found several nasty bugs just waiting to bite me that the vs2015 compiler didn't catch.

Hi guys,

Anybody know how is the accessibility of this new version of visual studio?

I would like to know specifically in the ASP interface, and VB interface.

Thanks in advance,
