Hello to all.
Does anyone know of anyone writing some scrip's to make quicken more blind
friendly with jaws?
Because currently the fields are blank and you have to memorize everything.
So, it would be nice if we could get JAWS 2018 to work with quicken so that
one could keep up with one's checking account.
Very Thankfully yours,

I do not have an answer. I am able to supplement jaws with Magic. Without Magic I would be out of luck with Quicken.

Hey there Tomcat,
Before you do the Jaws repair, go to the Freedom Scientific web site, open the Downloads page and select Jaws. Near the download links for Jaws 2018, you’ll find one for FS OCR. Download that file and run x. If the install is successful, try doing the OCR again. If the installer quits and tells you that the OCR component is already there, then troubleshoot the issue. Run the repair by going to the Run dialog and yyping

“jaws2018 /type repair”

and see what happens. Not sure if I have the command syntax correct. Hope this helps.

Alt-Tabbing Problem

George Gray
 

Hola!

I am using JAWS 2018 on a Win10 (Latest update) machine.

For some reason when I now use alt + tab to circle through my open
windows I am only cycling through 2 windows, though, I know that I
have more open at the time.

I know this by looking at the Running Applications List Box via
numpad/enter + F10.

How can I get back to normal alt + tab cycling?

Thanks.

I found the download link just fine using Jaws and Firefox.

The issue is you cannot download the book unless you are sign up as a Patron.

Dear Listers:

 

Are any of you familiar with Audio Book Ministries, also known as Tape Ministries for the Blind?  They have an online accessible library from which their books can be downloaded, but doing it using JAWS is very hard.  Their address is:

 

http://www.audiobookministries.org

 

Right now the employee they have who is knowledgeable about screen readers and about JAWS is on medical leave and they don’t know when he will be back again.  So if any of you are familiar with this particular web site and maybe, by chance, might have downloaded a book from it, would you please be so kind as to access it and figure out how it can be done using JAWS?  You don’t have to sign in to do this—at least not for the help I am asking for.  Just go to the web page and find the “Online Library Access,” link and hit the Enter key.  Then if you just find any book, try to figure out how to get to the page where the book can be downloaded.  When you get to the page that has the book description, you’ll see there is no direct link to download the book.  There is a “downloads,” link but it will not take you to the “download,” page for the book you wish to download.  Instead, it takes you to the page where there are various things that can be downloaded, such as the AudioBook Ministries tax summary and various other things not at all related to the book you wish to download.  When you find a book, just tell me how to use JAWS to get to the book’s download page.

Re: Using JAWS to Download a Book from a Particular Web Site

Richard Turner
 

Rick,

Using Firefox, it is clearly possible to get to the download link after selecting a book.  Note that the book download link is above the submit button rather than after it.

However, when you follow that download link you get to the “check out” page where it clearly states:

 

You must be logged in to checkout.

 

You have to sign up as a patron in order to download anything.

The How to become a patron file makes that pretty clear.

 

I hope that helps,

Richard

Hi Michael!  Citrix and JAWS play very well, if you have it configured correctly.  First of all, you will need to have a remote access license.  This is different than the regular JAWS license, and costs around 200 dollars.  With respect to your issue, in order to make sure that all of the key commands go to the server, you will need to make sure that the virtual desktop is displaying in full screen mode.  You accomplish this by first pulling up the Virtual desktop or the server, and then pressing control, plus Alt, plus Pause on your computer.  Be mindful that many laptop computers do not have a pause button, so you may need to use a regular desktop keyboard for this.  Once you press Control, Plus Alt, plus Pause, a menu will come up with several options.  You’re looking for the full screen option.  Press enter to activate it.  You should only have to do this once.  From then on, the setting will be remembered, or at least it has been for me.  I hope this helps!
