Kevin,
 
In Openbook, go to your preferences and see where the files are being stored by default.

I thought I would check this out; my document saved just fine, but now I cannot find it. I used to go to Open Book on the desk top, hit enter on Open Book, and arrow down to my Open Book documents. Now Open Book opens, and I do not know where my saved Open Book documents are?

Hello Richard,

 

I do not have any idea what is going on with your system but, have you tried naming and saving a file before you start scanning.  OB has been bad about crashing on me for years on many many different computers including Win10 Creator 64 bit.

 

I learned a long time ago to name and save a file before I scanned too many pages.  If it crashes before you save, you loose every thing that you scanned.  Not so good if you have scanned a lot of pages.  And, for me, I have far less crashes if the file has been named.  I definitely do not know why.

 

While this information probably doesn’t help you very much, maybe it will save you a little time.

 

Good luck with tech support Monday.

 

James B

If there are any OpenBook 9 users running Windows 10 Creator Edition, 64 bit; have you had any issues with saving files after scanning?

On my system, I get the nebulous error message that something has stopped Openbook from working and Windows will close the program, etc.

 

I have corresponded with tech support and I tried their repair steps, didn’t work.

I tried their suggestion of uninstalling and reinstalling it into a custom location, still not working.

I did not remove shared components because I thought that would mess up my Jaws installation.

Any thoughts before I have to call tech support on Monday?

 

Thanks,

Richard

 

 


Re: accessible password manager

 

Keeping it in a text file or even a password protected Excel or file on the computer may be OK if you are just at home where you can access the information and if you only want to access it on your computer.

For me this wouldn’t work because I need not just passwords but as Pablo said other important information accessible at home as well as at my business on several computers and also want this access on my iPhone when I’m out and about.

I hear a lot of people use One Password or Lastpass, I started out with Roboform a very long time ago and it continues to work well for me. The iOS app is also very accessible and you can store passwords, bookmarks (which are not password protected), SafeNotes which can be long notes and it even has a contact section which I don’t use.

The Roboform Everywhere service costs a bit, but it’s not expensive, maybe $20 a year or so and a while back they had a special where I think it was $75 for 7 or 8 years.

Many website you can open right from Roboform, if, for example, I want to log in to my online banking I press Insert+F11 to bring up the system tray icons, type
R” for Roboform and press enter, this opens a context menu, I arrow to logins, then right arrow to open it, type “S” which takes me to “Scotia Bank” and when I press enter I enter my Master password, then the passcard opens the website, automatically fills the fields with my bank card number and password and submits the form.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Hi all,

Any suggestion about a good password manager. I don’t know if this kind of software is called like that, but I am looking a software that allow me to store users names, passwords, but also other information like account numbers, credit card numbers. So should be something that manage passwords, but also other  kind of personal information.

Thanks for any advice regarding this software.

1. Open Openbook, & press, Alt + G, to open Settings.
2. Press the letter, G, to open General Settings, or arrow down to it , & press enter.
3. Tab to, Default File Location, & this will tell you where your files are being saved to.

Re: An OpenBook question while I wait to get accepted on the Openbook users list

Until such time as you get the solution figured out, you can access your saved files under the OpenBook document history list.  Unfortunately, I believe this list is only of documents you open, not those that you saved and did not thereafter open.

 

For the opened documents list, go under the file menu, and arrow down.  You will start hearing file names, and the line number is where that file was in order.  Hence, file 1 will be the one last opened. 

 

Hope this helps as a work-around.

Thanks James for the suggestion.

Sadly, Openbook blows out even if I try and save a document with a different name before scanning.

It will be interesting to see what tech support says tomorrow.

I wonder if they are giving up development on Openbook.  As far as I know, I’m still on the beta team and nothing has been done in years.

If there are any OpenBook 9 users running Windows 10 Creator Edition, 64 bit; have you had any issues with saving files after scanning?

On my system, I get the nebulous error message that something has stopped Openbook from working and Windows will close the program, etc.

 

I have corresponded with tech support and I tried their repair steps, didn’t work.

I tried their suggestion of uninstalling and reinstalling it into a custom location, still not working.

I did not remove shared components because I thought that would mess up my Jaws installation.

Any thoughts before I have to call tech support on Monday?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hello Richard,
 
I do not have any idea what is going on with your system but, have you tried naming and saving a file before you start scanning.  OB has been bad about crashing on me for years on many many different computers including Win10 Creator 64 bit.
 
I learned a long time ago to name and save a file before I scanned too many pages.  If it crashes before you save, you loose every thing that you scanned.  Not so good if you have scanned a lot of pages.  And, for me, I have far less crashes if the file has been named.  I definitely do not know why.
 
While this information probably doesn’t help you very much, maybe it will save you a little time.
 
Good luck with tech support Monday.
 
James B

Re: Does jaws have hyper windows?

Totally! "Frames" is what you want.

Good morning.

Does jaws have the ability to watch a section of the screen for a particular change  and then report a message?

WindowEyes had a tool called hyper windows that could do this.

 

In the Time collection program here at work there are Icons that appear if the record has issues, i.e. that the record is incomplete or  times overlap.

If there are no problems this icon is not there. The icon is always in the same place on the screen.

I would like to be able to use the PC curser to move up and down the employee list and if there is a problem have jaws announce it without having to go and manually look at each and every record.

Do the Jaws frames have this capability?

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Shannon


Re: Removing JAWS

 

It probably got all messed up because you uninstalled the shared components, if you plan to use Jaws or another VFO product definitely say No when that question comes up.

Hi Howard,

 

If you have more than 1 version of Jaws installed, use 1 different than the 1 you want to uninstall.  i.e, If you want to uninstall Jaws 12, use any other version you hav to uninstall it.  If you only have the version installed that you want to remove, use Narrator or NVDA to uninstall it.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

To remove jaws, should jaws be running?  Yes or no.  I once removed an old
version and it really messed things up.  Can't remember if I did it while it
was running or not.  Thanks.  Howard

You should never uninstall an application while it is running.
If you have NVDA, run it while doing the Jaws uninstall.
Or, Narrator of course.
