Re: How to Back Up JFW16 Settings

Hi Dani,
 
Note: I've done the below from 1 Windows 7 to another, but not from a Windows 7 system to a Windows 10 system.
Copy your Jaws 16 ENU folder from,
 
C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Freedom Scientific\JAWS
 
You can then paste the ENU folder replacing the default ENU folder on the other system.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Re: Spell checker for face book?

Re: Programming Language

although I don't know how to write programs, if I may suggest a program
I've heard that some programmers prefer; it is called EdSharp. it was
created some time ago, and over the years, it was tweaked to work at
it's best possible functioning. it is an editor that was designed with
the blind program writer in mind and is screen reader ready; chock full
of features and useful for many tasks regarding programming.

unfortunately, I don't know where to get it from since most of the links
that I find to download it from are no longer working. maybe someone who
knows where to grab a copy will provide a link or address.

However, one thing I want to warn you about regarding Python. The syntax

for proper indentation of each line. This is something that sighted
programmers can do at a glance, but I feel it is more tedious for a
blind person to do.

You can do user interface controls (GUI controls) using either language.
Python has some kind of module that you include, and C++ interfaces
easily with Qt. I know that the user interface created by C++ and Qt can
be made accessible to blind end users. Personally, I've ran into some
issues with Python user interfaces, but haven't tried to create one
myself, so I don't know whether the interface was not accessible due to
programmer error, or some inherent flaw in Python user interfaces.

If I sound like I'm recommending C++, it's probably because that's the
language I'm most familiar with. Sometimes, using the development
environment that you're most familiar with is the best solution.

I am very low vision due to a progressively worsening eye disorder, and
I just want to add one more comment. I've found it very difficult to
transition from programming as a sighted person to programming as a
blind person. I believe this is because I have learned programming using
my eyes, not my ears. Never, in all my years of school and employment,

blind person today, hearing a screen reader read a segment of code is
almost nonsensical to me. It's as if the wiring in my brain doesn't

Re: Is shipt.com accessible?

Peter Donahue
 

Good morning everyone,

 

                We tried the Shipt App with Voiceover and their Website with Jaws. In either case the accessibility was marginal. My brother and sister-in-law signed us up for an account but we told them about the accessibility issues and had it canceled. Once we figure out how it works since we're Amazon Prime Members we want to begin using Amazon Fresh which can be used with little difficulty from the Amazon App or from www.amazon.com. The monthly charge for an Amazon Prime Membership is $11.00. It's a great deal for the money. Hope this helps.

Re: Jaws not finding content in word 2016

Pablo Morales
 

Dear Aleksander,

I am seeing that insert + control + f  also works on text strings, even on parts that are not on the screen. As I said before, I notice that this function is not working very consistently on word. I am making a search on a word document, and it is finding the strings on pages far away like page 11 or page 27 or even pages 253. So this function is also developed for working on the current screen and also on the document. It is the information that I received on a training 2 years ago. I received this training from the training department of freedom scientific.

However, this function is not working always.

Of course, you can use it in text editors or word processors as well, but it will work reliably only within the current screen. It is sometimes useful, though, because it brings the cursor directly to the search result, no need to close the search window. However, I never use it in Word or editors.

Hi Pablo,

 

as far as I know, JAWS search (Insert+CTRL+F) in Word or all program windows except the web-like ones (browser, PDF) only searches for strings on the current screen. Therefore, CTRL+F works better there because by default, this function searches for the string in the entire document.

The following problem is happening on 3 different computers running Jaws 18 last release on windows 10, and word 2016 office 365.

When I have a word document opened, and I press insert + control + F to find a string. When I press enter to start the find function, 90% of the times jaws says, string not found.

However I know that that string is there so I try to use the word find function, pressing control + F, then I press enter.

Yes, using the find function on word, I am finding strings that jaws  is not able to find.

What is happening here? Why the find function  in jaws is not working consistently?

I am not understanding your question well. I guess that you are asking the following:

What language is able to create accessible programs for visually impaired users as well for sighted?

I am confused because when you are talking about programs, languages and users each part is independent.

You create a program using a language, the operating system runs the program that you created, but the user will access the program that you created, no the language.

All languages could be accessible or not accessible at all. It depends on the way how you created the programs.

If you are just starting, you can start with Python, there are developing inviroments very accessible, or you can use visual studio, that also is very accessible.

Now the accessibility of the programs that you create depends on the way how you created, so it depends on you.

Hi Annabelle,

If you are just starting, I will not recommend start from C++. C++ is very good because you are able to develop software that will not require interpreters like visual basic, c#, python, and many others. However it imply that C++ is a little bit more complex than python or visual basic.

I don’t know what is the experience that you have, but if you are just starting, you might be better with a visual basic language, where you are able to add and modify those controls that you want to create, combo boxes, list boxes, buttons, and all of that. As higher is the level of the language that you want to use, it is more easy to be handle for us, but at the same time it imply that it will use more computer resources, and more dependency of the operating system. As lower is the level of the language that  you want to use, you are closer of the machine language, so the computer will use less resources, and it will be more independent of the operating system.

However, if you want to use controls like combo boxes , buttons, and all of that, other choice that you have is the web development. A web app runs on a server, no matter if the visitors are working on a Mac Os or on a windows computer.

Choices for web development are many but ASP and PHP are the most common today. ASP web apps runs on windows servers, but the pages are going to be seen on whatever operating system with a software to browse on internet. PHP runs on apache web servers, but the web pages are going to be seen on computers with operating systems that support web browsing.\

So at the end, no difference.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I hope that some of you fellow JAWS members might have an easy solution to this problem I'm having. I am a beginner at computer programming, and I want to make a program with a language that is not only accessible to screen readers like JAWS, but is universal across Mac and Windows operating systems. I want to learn how to program things like buttons, checkboxes, radio buttons, paragraphs, textboxes, sections, combo boxes, listboxes, tree views, progress bars, scroll bars, list views, and sliders. I'd like to try the C++ Programming Language, recommended to me by my friend, Markus Johnson (Yes, that's "Markus" with a "K", and not a "C"), but I'm not sure how to configure codes for things like buttons, checkboxes, listboxes, comboboxes, hotkeys, and radiobuttons. Do I just write these codes in a plain text editor like Notepad? I'm confused on this one! But another friend of mine, Marc-Pierre Verge, tells me I should use Python. Now I'm really confused! Which language would you recommend? The program that I'm making is an app that I like to call "Ceremony Script Generator". This is an app that contains fillable forms, then generates a finished script in paragraphs and sections. There are different ceremonies for which customers can design a script with wordings of their choice. Basically, with this program, you can generate scripts for Wedding ceremonies, Baptism/dedication/christening/naming ceremonies, and funeral ceremonies/memorial services. In this Email, I will attach an example of a ceremony I've made. This Email will also contain part of my soon-to-be program. Here are some examples of the App I want to make. These are in HTML, but I want to learn how to code them in a different programming language. If you open these in a plain text editor like Notepad, you'll be able to see the source code I've made. One thing I'd like to learn is how to hide a textbox ("Last Name For Couple") and show two other textboxes ("Last Name For Spouse 1" and "Last Name For Spouse 2") when a checkbox ("The Couple Plans To Use The Same Last Name After Marriage") is unchecked, and vice versa when the checkbox is checked. And here is an example of what I want to generate in paragraphs and sections when customers complete all the steps. Read the source code in either a web browser or a plain text editor, and you'll see what I'm trying to generate. I don't want to create a program for running on a website, but I want to create a program that runs within the operating system.

Hello all,

I am not at all sure how to explain what I want to do but I am going to try.

Jaws has a Key stroke “Insert Num pad 8” Which in the keyboard help says that it “JAWSKey+UpArrow
Says the current line.”

This key stroke in my time collection program reads the job and job type.

 

What I want is exactly what this is doing but, I want to make a different set of keys do this action. I want to keep my fingers off the number pad.

I would prefer something like Ctrl Shift J.

And if possible make this only apply to one program.

Can I do this?
If so I want to do the same thing to the “insert numpad7” JAWSKey+Home
Says the text from the beginning of the line up to the active cursor.

 

Can I mimic the behavior of these key strokes with different keys?

 

Thanks a lot!

Shannon

I am not understanding your question well. I guess that you are asking the following:

What language is able to create accessible programs for visually impaired users as well for sighted?

I am confused because when you are talking about programs, languages and users each part is independent.

You create a program using a language, the operating system runs the program that you created, but the user will access the program that you created, no the language.

All languages could be accessible or not accessible at all. It depends on the way how you created the programs.

If you are just starting, you can start with Python, there are developing inviroments very accessible, or you can use visual studio, that also is very accessible.

Now the accessibility of the programs that you create depends on the way how you created, so it depends on you.

I'd rather make a program that could run on a computer rather than the web. And I'm trying to figure out, which programming language would be accessible to both sighted and visually impaired customers alike?

Hi Annabelle,

If you are just starting, I will not recommend start from C++. C++ is very good because you are able to develop software that will not require interpreters like visual basic, c#, python, and many others. However it imply that C++ is a little bit more complex than python or visual basic.

I don’t know what is the experience that you have, but if you are just starting, you might be better with a visual basic language, where you are able to add and modify those controls that you want to create, combo boxes, list boxes, buttons, and all of that. As higher is the level of the language that you want to use, it is more easy to be handle for us, but at the same time it imply that it will use more computer resources, and more dependency of the operating system. As lower is the level of the language that  you want to use, you are closer of the machine language, so the computer will use less resources, and it will be more independent of the operating system.

However, if you want to use controls like combo boxes , buttons, and all of that, other choice that you have is the web development. A web app runs on a server, no matter if the visitors are working on a Mac Os or on a windows computer.

Choices for web development are many but ASP and PHP are the most common today. ASP web apps runs on windows servers, but the pages are going to be seen on whatever operating system with a software to browse on internet. PHP runs on apache web servers, but the web pages are going to be seen on computers with operating systems that support web browsing.\

So at the end, no difference.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I hope that some of you fellow JAWS members might have an easy solution to this problem I'm having. I am a beginner at computer programming, and I want to make a program with a language that is not only accessible to screen readers like JAWS, but is universal across Mac and Windows operating systems. I want to learn how to program things like buttons, checkboxes, radio buttons, paragraphs, textboxes, sections, combo boxes, listboxes, tree views, progress bars, scroll bars, list views, and sliders. I'd like to try the C++ Programming Language, recommended to me by my friend, Markus Johnson (Yes, that's "Markus" with a "K", and not a "C"), but I'm not sure how to configure codes for things like buttons, checkboxes, listboxes, comboboxes, hotkeys, and radiobuttons. Do I just write these codes in a plain text editor like Notepad? I'm confused on this one! But another friend of mine, Marc-Pierre Verge, tells me I should use Python. Now I'm really confused! Which language would you recommend? The program that I'm making is an app that I like to call "Ceremony Script Generator". This is an app that contains fillable forms, then generates a finished script in paragraphs and sections. There are different ceremonies for which customers can design a script with wordings of their choice. Basically, with this program, you can generate scripts for Wedding ceremonies, Baptism/dedication/christening/naming ceremonies, and funeral ceremonies/memorial services. In this Email, I will attach an example of a ceremony I've made. This Email will also contain part of my soon-to-be program. Here are some examples of the App I want to make. These are in HTML, but I want to learn how to code them in a different programming language. If you open these in a plain text editor like Notepad, you'll be able to see the source code I've made. One thing I'd like to learn is how to hide a textbox ("Last Name For Couple") and show two other textboxes ("Last Name For Spouse 1" and "Last Name For Spouse 2") when a checkbox ("The Couple Plans To Use The Same Last Name After Marriage") is unchecked, and vice versa when the checkbox is checked. And here is an example of what I want to generate in paragraphs and sections when customers complete all the steps. Read the source code in either a web browser or a plain text editor, and you'll see what I'm trying to generate. I don't want to create a program for running on a website, but I want to create a program that runs within the operating system.


Re: alphabetical file list

Mario
 

for Windows 7, press tab when you're on the list of files and press
enter on the name split button. you are returned to the file list which
should now be in reversed order (ascending order). BTW, this reverses
the order if you press enter on the name split button again.


I believe this also applies (works) in Windows 10.

Re: files list how to?

if you're using Windows 7, tab from the list of files to and enter on a
name split button, then you'll be returned to the list of files which
should be reversed, in your case ascending order (sorted A to Z).

I think this also applies to Windows 10.
