Betreff: Re: regarding OBS software

 

Hi,

 

I use OBS for recording play throughs of my game engine. If you don’t want to use any of the fancy features it’s really straight forward to use. simply install the program, there’s no special set up required, just install and when you want to start recording it will automatically record both your pc and your mic. once it’s open press tab (it’s about 7 times for me) until you reach a check box called start recording  (its just under start streaming, don’t use that one as it is more complex). Once you hit start recording, when you are finished, the start recording check box will have changed to stop recording, simply press space to stop recording and that’s it and it’s all done. Head to your videos folder through file explorer (where documents,  downloads etc all are, in your videos folder you’ll find a folder called captures, in here will be the recording you just made.   Hope that helps

Good morning everybody!

1. My message contains german pats because I am a German speaker and my deffolt system language is German.

2. If nobody knows if OBS works then could somebody instead reccomend me a tool which with I can both record my screen, myvoice and the pc sounds. I really need that for a class work.

PS: I asked my f riend for help but he didn‘t use the programm quite a while so that‘s why I am asking in the community.

Hi Everyone,

 

I thought I was the only one that was having problems with my JAWS.  For me, when I open up his e-mail, JAWS reads the entire e-mail from top to bottom in German. 

 

Sometimes in certain e-mails I receive JAWS may read part of the address in the body of the e-mail in a different language.  Can I change any settings to avoid this problem in the future with certain e-mails?

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi everyone,

I tried to install some jaws scripts for reporting progress bar via
sounds. The name of the script is jgauge, and I founded in this page:

https://www.dlee.org/
<https://apc01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dlee.org%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7C8d51cee9b667415db6dd08d7f2925ffa%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637244582793349676&sdata=sixvaYKk9ThebZEFq9c5cgGSnLBstVq5YzOiHKGCrzM%3D&reserved=0>

it’s an executable file, but right in the end of the installation
process, a message was displayed telling me that there had been an
error. I believe that the script is compatible with my version of
jaws 2020 since the installer properly identified this jaws version.

What could it have gone wrong?

Can someone provide this same script to be installed manually?

Thanks.

You get a list of profiles arranged by birth date. Each profile is a link and the profile may have links to:

To create and edit profiles you need to register (no charge).

There is no free trial period.

I've been using it for about 5 years a and much of what I need is accessible with Jaws and NVDA.

 

You don't need additional software. It's free to register, it works with Jaws.

 

Whatever you create on WikiTree.com will be there for the world to browse and for a lot longer than your PC based software.

Hello, Cristina. I will tell you how to put JAWS into sleep mode, but I want to warn that you need to be very careful with this, because it can be difficult to undo this if you make a mistake. This is the type of sleep mode in which JAWS will never speak once a program is loaded.

 

1. Open the program or application for which you want JAWS to be silent during its operation.

2. Press JAWS key plus the number six on the numbers row (not the NumPad).

3. In the search box which comes up, type the word sleep.

4. You will get two results, one applying to braille sleep, the other applies to sleep for JAWS, and it will say it is disabled.

5. Press the Space Bar until it says Enabled.

6. TAB to OK and press ENTER.

 

Now, whenever you start the program for which you never want JAWS to speak, JAWS will always be silent.

 

If you just want to turn off JAWS speech temporarily, press JAWS Key plus Space, followed by the letter S. This is a toggle, so, if you want to turn JAWS speech back on, press JAWS Key plus Space, followed by the letter S, until it says, Full Speech.

moderated Re: need information

 

There really is a finite shelf life to any software, but that for screen readers is much shorter than that of many other types of software.  The pace of changes in coding for the web alone dictates certain changes in screen readers and the changes in Windows 10 sometimes do, as well.

A three-year-old version of any screen reader, on a system that's up-to-date otherwise, is asking for problems.

Also, it would help to know, if we're talking about Edge, whether we're talking new Edge or original Edge.  If you hit ALT+F,B,M and end up on the About pane for Edge and it shows a Version, then you have new Edge, which is the only thing anyone should be using now.  If nothing comes up, you have original Edge, and need to visit the Edge Download Page and download and install the latest Edge browser before doing anything else.

Richard Turner
 

David, thanks for this, but this has already been covered.

I hope those with the retail version of Outlook are communicating with Microsoft Accessibility about how completely unacceptable it is to have the signature field completely useless.

And composing a signature in word, pasting it in and then seeing if it comes out correctly in a new email is not an acceptable workaround.

It is a work around, but no one should settle for that without communicating with Microsoft.

Just my 2 ¢ Worth.

I might be able to shed some light on this issue. Outlook 2016's edit field for signatures was completely inaccessible with screen readers. However, this problem was addressed in the 365 version of Outlook and, presumably, in Outlook 2019.

When I was using Outlook 2016 I worked around this by composing my signature in Microsoft Word. Once I was certain that the signature contained the text that I wanted I would press ctrl-A to select the entire text of the signature and then press ctrl-C to copy the signature to the clipboard. Next, I would open Outlook 2016, go into the signature edit field, press control-A to select all of the text and then press ctrl-V to paste my newly written signature into the edit field.

To verify that the signature was what I really wanted I would begin composing a message and then arrow down through the message body to examine the signature.

Hope that helps.

Yes.  No problem.  But I know I’ve had your frustration, I just don’t know what changed for me.  I was just pushed an office update here at work last week to Microsoft Outlook Subscription Version 16.0.11929.20776

OK, so you opened that edit box and edited an existing signature in that edit box without any issues?

 

On my Work machine, running Jaws 2020, Windows 10 Pro, and Outlook 2016, that edit box does not read at all with Jaws or Narrator.  NVDA will read the first line and that is it.

 

With sighted help, I can do what you said and write it in Word, then paste it in, but the sighted person has to delete the text of that one is there.

I could I suppose have created an  entirely new signature, but that was not what I neded for work.

 

Very interesting.

Richard,

I just tweaked one of my existing signatures without issue.  I find it most straight forward to shift tab past the Cancel and OK buttons to the edit field.  This is what JAWS tells me when I do that:

 

Cancel
OK Button‑
Edit signature

Alt Tl
Signatures and Stationery

 

So, it’s a bit verbose as it lands in that edit field, which is the first shift tab after the OK button.  I typically type and format the signature as I want it in Word or in the email body, then cut and paste it into the edit box. 

 

The list of signatures you have created seems to be the found as a list with one tab from when the dialog opens.  There is a lot of clutter between this list and the edit box, which is why shift tabbing  works best.  H

HTH,

Robin

Now if the Outlook engineers would only make the edit box for creating your signature accessible ... it isn't as far as I can tell.

Or, do you have a trick for that other than getting someone with eyes that work?

I accidentally discovered a cool trick in Outlook.  If you have more than one type of  email signature, based on the audience of your email, I thought we  had to go select the one we wanted each time from the Insert Ribbon under signatures.  Here’s the trick, as long as you have a default signature in any new email you create, you can simply arrow down into that signature text and open the context menu.  The list of your signatures are right there for you to select from and the whole thing will quickly update.   Sometimes the Outlook developers surprise me with the shortcuts they code.

Hi Richard, thanks for the info. I had a second look on the release history of the script, and I see that the last release was in April 2019, so even though it identified my jaws version, the script may not be compatible with jaws 2020 after all.

Hi everyone,

I tried to install some jaws scripts for reporting progress bar via sounds. The name of the script is jgauge, and I founded in this page:

https://www.dlee.org/ <https://apc01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dlee.org%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7C8d51cee9b667415db6dd08d7f2925ffa%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637244582793349676&sdata=sixvaYKk9ThebZEFq9c5cgGSnLBstVq5YzOiHKGCrzM%3D&reserved=0>

it’s an executable file, but right in the end of the installation process, a message was displayed telling me that there had been an error. I believe that the script is compatible with my version of jaws 2020 since the installer properly identified this jaws version.

What could it have gone wrong?

Can someone provide this same script to be installed manually?

Thanks.

I might be able to shed some light on this issue. Outlook 2016's edit field for signatures was completely inaccessible with screen readers. However, this problem was addressed in the 365 version of Outlook and, presumably, in Outlook 2019.

When I was using Outlook 2016 I worked around this by composing my signature in Microsoft Word. Once I was certain that the signature contained the text that I wanted I would press ctrl-A to select the entire text of the signature and then press ctrl-C to copy the signature to the clipboard. Next, I would open Outlook 2016, go into the signature edit field, press control-A to select all of the text and then press ctrl-V to paste my newly written signature into the edit field.

To verify that the signature was what I really wanted I would begin composing a message and then arrow down through the message body to examine the signature.

Hope that helps.
