Hi All,

 

Running Windows 7, Office 2010 Home & Student, & Jaws 16.  When I create a word .docx, & press either, Control + S, Alt + F, then A, or F12 to save the document I do not get a save dialogue to name the file as whatever I want to name it.  The document just flat out disappears, & I can't find it anywhere!  I know where it's suppose to save to if it gets closed without being saved, but like I said, I can't find where it's supposed to go or anywhere else!  I'm all out of ideas, would y'all please come to my rescue, & tell me what the hell is happening?!  LOL  All help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.

importing settings in to 2018

Tom <tomcat509@...>
 

Hi,

Using Jaws 2018 64 bit Home under W10.

 

When installing 2018 from 18.0 recently,Jaws asked about importing some settings from 18.0 which I did. While some dictionary files and some settings were imported, a script file appears not to have been taken across to 2018.

 

Is this normal for Jaws not to include scripts when doing an import?

 

Is there a file which can be manually copied from 18.0 to 2018 which will give access to the script?  If so, what is it called and where can the file be located? 

 

 Thanks

Tom

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.

Press Jaws spacebar O then D

 

Jaws says, OCR failed to start.

 

And that is as far as I get.

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

Elaine Young <hidden_spring@...>
 

Hi, Rick

I too am a member of Audio Book Ministries (Tape Ministries Northwest) and can not manage to download a book. I have my password and about a year ago the director talked me through the process and I got a book or two. But I have not ever been able to do it on my own. I think the site is accessible, but difficult to navigate and find the right buttons. I suggest you call Audio Books and ask for help. Although the director is currently out on medical leave, as you know, I think  there is at least one board member who is blind and uses JAWS. Perhaps you can get help from him/her.  And if you do---LET ME KNOW HOW YOU DID IT!


If you contact me off list, we can see if we can figure it out together!

hidden_spring@...


and put Audio Book Ministry in the subject line, please, so I don't delete it.

 And as I suppose you know, you can request the library to send the book on a cartridge but I too would prefer to download it on my own.


-Elaine

Rick already posted this question and there were at least three replies.

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.

 

Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi Randy,

I just wanted to report to you that my Jaws 18 reads budget correctly. I am using it now, while typing this message. There may be some dictionary entry on your system that is causing this or, maybe the change took place in the 2018 upgrade. I have not yet installed my copy.

First, my understanding was that you might be able to use the ElBraille in

processor, which is not as fast and responsive as my three year old desk top
computer. It is similar in speed to my Asus tablet I purchased around three
years ago. Although, I do not use the Asus tablet enough to have a good
comparison, and my ElBraille 14 may be faster, it is not as fast and

I do not use OpenBook or OCR on the Elbraile. I believe you will need Jaws
18. You will want to buy a USB hub to give you more than one USB port, and
I also bought an HDMI adapter with a regular monitor port for my wife to be
able to give me some feedback.

Running a computer just using the Focus 14 key board has been a learning
curve. I did cheat for a while and connected a regular key board.

The Braille translation table in Jaws does have a problem, it recognizes dg
as the degrees symbol in words. For example, budget is pronounced
bu-degrees-et. I am not sure if Jaws 2018 has an updated translation that
has corrected this. This is a Braille translation problem, not an ElBraille
problem. Also, I have not heard yet if I can update my ElBraille to run
Jaws 2018, which I am running on the rest of my computers.

There are times that I wish it was a little snappier running Outlook, Word,
and Excel, but it isn't too bad. I had been using the ElNotes program to
take notes, until I just decided today to use Wordpad instead.

The makers of the ElBraille like Fire Fox, and I do not use it. I had
started using Google Chrome, but there was problems typing into edit fields
with the Braille key board when using Chrome, which I am not sure if this is
an ElBraille problem or Jaws, but I suspect it is a Jaws problem. VFO
recommended I use Internet Explorer and Ron Miller help me get Internet
Explorer to be my default browser.

Keep in mind that this is not a VFO product, and VFO did not have a
dedicated support person for the ElBraille when I last called tech support.
Ron Miller from VFO did take the time to talk with me when I was having some
initial challenges with ElBraille. I have found it easier and quicker to
send questions direct to the Elita Group who made the ElBraille, and they do
respond fairly quickly.

I hope this helps, and let me know if you have any further questions. I
still believe the best notetaker in the future will be a full featured
windows computer or tablet, which is why I am willing to go through the
challenge of using the ElBraille.

That is fine unless you have a lot of music or videos. My main OS drive is a 100GB partition that has all my software. all my media goes on a seperate 256GB SSD.
6GB of RAM is fine also. 8 is the best price/performance balance but 6 is fine. Actually anything over 8 is a waste of money unless you do serious CAD or editing of some kind.

Subject: 2018 with a 250 G hardrive?

I was given a HP lap top by a charitable group sponsored by the government.
It has 6 Gigs of ram and a 250 G hard drive. Is that enough to run JAWS
2018 as well as other related products? The agent knew I was blind.
Perhaps the agent being sighted was not aware of the size of hard drive
needed. After all, he didn't know Window Eyes had been discontinued. I
don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth however, fear the hard drive is
not big enough to handle accessibility products. It was suggested I just
send the lap top back.

Re: 2018 with a 250 G hardrive?

 

Makes no difference for Jaws, if it has 6 Gb of RAM this is probably a computer that is less than 5 years old and I have a PC at work with an Intel E7400 CPU which will be 10 years old next February, it has 2 GB of RAM and probably also a 250 Gb or 500 Gb hard drive and Jaws runs fine on it. Obviously at 10 years old it's not the fastest horse on the track, but it still does what it is supposed to do, it has Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit installed on it and we use it at my store upstairs primarily to look up items in our POS system or go online for looking up something here and there.
This by the way was about $500 at the time with a $89 motherboard and all in all just a super-simple workstation.

Re: Outlook 2016 Address Field Issue

 

No, this is not an issue. However, on my Windows 7 PC’s I still can’t use Control+Shift+I to return to my default Inbox and in Excel if I dare to start a formula by typing the equals sign it crashes right away.

If, for example, I want to do a formula like =A1+A2, I have to first type A1+A2, then if I go back with F2 and edit the cell I can put an equals sign in front of it and tab and then the formula works. Alternatively I have to type out all formulas in Notepad and then paste them into Excel.

On my Windows 10 laptop this is not an issue.

This, by the way, is happening both with the latest update of Jaws 18 as well as Jaws 2018.

Subject: Outlook 2016 Address Field Issue

 

Hello, everyone.

 

This morning, I just discovered a major problem with Outlook 2016 when originating an e-mail.

 

When I start a new e-mail with control N, I can no longer type a contact address into the “to” field.  When I do this, I get kicked out of my new e-mail, and get placed back into my inbox.

 

Interestingly, I can go to my contacts list, and copy and paste the e-mail address into the to field with no problem.  I can also reply to e-mails with no problem.

 

Once again, the issue occurs when originating an e-mail and trying to access someone in my contacts list.

 

I am using Jaws 18, Outlook 2016 with Office 365, and Windows 7 here.

 

Has anyone recently experienced this issue, and if so, have you found a fix?

 

I am eligible to upgrade to Jaws 2018, and will do so when I get the chance.

 

However, in the meantime, I’d like to be able to quickly originate e-mails in the usual way if at all possible.
