Hi All,

I am getting ready to learn some programming in C# and will be using Visual Studio. My question is what will I need to do to get started using Visual Studio? Are there special scripts I need in order to use it? If it is not accessible, are there other IDEs that I can use to complete assignments? I am using JAWS 15 and Windows 8.1.

Thanks in advance and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

PS. Are there any groups for blind programmers?

Hi Laura,

Welcome ...... My name is also Laura (smile). I'm fairly new to this list and am not very tech savvy either. I hope the little bit of information listed below will be helpful to you.

I use Jaws 18 and MS Word 2016. When I press insert + dot on the numb pad (dot is the key to the right of insert) Jaws will say the current line I'm on. When I press insert + 3 on the numb pad Jaws will say the current page I'm on ...... Example; if you have a five page document and you're on page 3, by pressing insert + 3 Jaws will say "page 3 of 5".

Subject: Number of Jaws Quirks With Word

Hello,

I have just subscribed to the list, so apologies if any of this has been covered before. I am a longtime jaws user, but am not super tech savvy. A number of recent Jaws issues between jaws 18 and Microsoft word 2013 (particularly in the footnotes). Some bu tont all issues also involve my rather old but recently tuned up Focus 40. The same issues are happening on both my laptop (running windows 7) and my work desktop (running windows 10). I would truly appreciate help with any of the following. I have tried calling VFO Group but the recent hurricane has caused them to have staffing issues, and the one woman I did speak with said she had "no familiarity at all" with footnotes.
Feel free to contact me offlist if these are too trivial for listserv traffic.

1. Jaws used to read me the number of the footnote both above the line and below the line. It now only reads the number above the line. When I am down navigating in the footnotes, or when I am scrolling using the arrows or say all mode, it no longer announces the footnote number hwen reading the first line of each footnote. It will tell me if I hopver over the first character of the first line.

2. Similarly, I am having issues with line numbering, which can be helpful when multiple people are editing the same document. The feature is on, but Jaws is not announcing the line numbers. Honestly, I don't necessarily **want** it to announce each line number all the time, but I need to be able to verify that I have turned them on in my document, and I need Jaws to tell me what line I am currently on when I am sending edits to other folks. is there a way to do this similar to pressing f6 to get page information or insert+f to get font information?

3. After using ctrl+f to find text, the next time I hit ctrl+f, instead of bringing up the dialogue box, it keeps searching for the same text I previously entered, as though I had hit find next. This happens only sometimes, and I can't figure out the pattern. I've use a work-around, but would love for it to function properly.

4. Sometimes, Jaws will read both the new and revised text in a track change. To give an example, if the original word was taken, and I changed it to taking, jaws would read takening. This obviously gets confusing.

5. I have Braille marking turned on for underlining, italics, bold, and highlighting. This works above the line. However, if I have highlighting checked, the Braille display displays dots 7 and 8 across the entire line of footnoted text. If I turn highlighting **off*, the braille display stops doing this, but it also doesn't display bold, italics, or underlined text using dots 7 or 8 either.

6. Lastly, my cursor routing buttons don't work below the line.

I know there is a "repair" feature on Jaws, but I'm not sure how to use it or if it would be helpful in this situation. I find it odd that it would be happening exactly the same on two different machines running different copies of word. I also wonder whether it will reset all of my word-specific settings if I do that.

Anyway, thanks for any assistance. The combined force of all of these has markedly affected my productivity, so any help is greatly appreciated.

Best,

Laura

Thanks.  I use the setting in Winamp which asks if I want to set it as the default player.  This has worked for everything until the jaws podcasts.  I took your suggestion and set Winamp there and made sure everything was unchecked for media player.  We will see what happens when the next podcast comes out.

JAWS and braille tables (was RE: Problem with grade 2 entry using VarioUltra braille display)

Edward Green
 

Hi all,

Further to the problems I am experiencing with JAWS 18/2018 beta 1 and my
Baum VarioUltra, I suspect the problem may be with a particular braille
table - the non-UEB UK English grade 2. Both the UEB UK English grade 2 and
the non-UEB US English grade 2 tables seem to work.

Is there any way to reinstall a braille table or swap out the one included
with JAWS for another one? I'd like to use non-UEB if possible.

Cheers,

Ed

Hi,

I'm having problems typing in grade 2 braille using a VarioUltra brille
display under JAWS 18 and 2018 beta one. The display is connected via
Bluetooth, and I'm running Windows 10 Creator's on an HP Spectre 13 laptop.

I have input and output set to grade 2 in JAWS settings. However, when I
type the word "hello", the twol's in the word are expanded and "hello"
becomes "helittleo".

If I type a word beginning with the letter l, the British pound stirling
currency sign appears on the screen.

Does anyone have any idea about what I might need to change in JAWS or on
the VarioUltra to get grade 2 to work as it should?

Many thanks for any suggestions.

Cheers,

Ed

Re: Visual Studio and JAWS

Soronel Haetir
 

The only scripts you need are included with jaws.

You do, however, need to associate those scripts with visual studio.

To do so add the following lines to the confignames.ini file found in
the jaws user script directory:
; Visual Studio Professional/Team Foundation version 2013
devenv:12=Visual Studio 2010
; Visual Studio 2015 (all editions)
devenv:14=Visual Studio 2010
; Visual Studio 2017 (all editions)
devenv:15=Visual Studio 2010

At this point you could instead add the following single line instead:
devenv=Visual Studio 2010

It has been a long time since there were actually different scripts
for different versions of VS.

Hi Everyone,

I find it very hard to ascertain when JAWS reads out the letters B and D
respectively. In other words, the two sound so similar that it is very
difficult to figure when it is reading out which. This problem arises when
it reads out acronyms containing any of these two letters.
The only strategy I use to deal with this is to make it speak the
character concerned phonetically by pressing insert+comma, but that is a
very slow and cumbersome process.
I use JAWS 16 on a Windows 10 machine. I run JAWS at a very high speed,
roughly 65%, but the nature of my work makes such a pace necessary.

Insert, Comma only works if your JAWS settings have been set to Laptop keyboard.

You can press five twice on the num lock. I didn't know about insert comma. In fact I tried it, and all it did was write commas. It is definitely cumbersome.

Subject: Unable to figure out when JAWS speaks the letters 'B' and 'D'

Hi Everyone,

I find it very hard to ascertain when JAWS reads out the letters B and D respectively. In other words, the two sound so similar that it is very difficult to figure when it is reading out which. This problem arises when it reads out acronyms containing any of these two letters.
The only strategy I use to deal with this is to make it speak the character concerned phonetically by pressing insert+comma, but that is a very slow and cumbersome process.
I use JAWS 16 on a Windows 10 machine. I run JAWS at a very high speed, roughly 65%, but the nature of my work makes such a pace necessary.

Best,
Rahul













Problem with grade 2 entry using VarioUltra braille display

Edward Green
 

Hi,

I'm having problems typing in grade 2 braille using a VarioUltra brille display under JAWS 18 and 2018 beta one. The display is connected via Bluetooth, and I'm running Windows 10 Creator's on an HP Spectre 13 laptop.

I have input and output set to grade 2 in JAWS settings. However, when I type the word "hello", the twol's in the word are expanded and "hello" becomes "helittleo".

If I type a word beginning with the letter l, the British pound stirling currency sign appears on the screen.

Does anyone have any idea about what I might need to change in JAWS or on the VarioUltra to get grade 2 to work as it should?

Many thanks for any suggestions.

Cheers,

Ed

Yes, and I don't even have media player configured. Winamp is directed to always be the default player. Normally, if I do need media player, I find myself having to go through the setup and then I remove it again when I no longer need it. Well, I don't actually remove it, I just disable it in the Windows features. I should maybe add that I am running Win7 on a desktop pc.
