Oh boy, does that ever sound familiar. I did that once on a Medicaid computer--felt like a real chump. What's worse, I knew better. An IT guy had to restore the entire root directory--embarrassing!

Yep, I realize you said without a goodwindows manual. Even if I had
one, my husband and I weren't proficient/confident to apply the info safely.

In the dos days I had good reading vision with special glasses so I was
not as timid. But even then I found a way to delete everything on the
computer instead of one file.

I will leave serious stuff like registry changes to the more
experienced, and knowledgable folks.

Interesting Ted about not touching the registry.

When I was investigating which screen reader to purchase, I got the
windows blue screen of death. The Jaws tech said to change something in
the registry. The Window-Eyes tech told me how to update the video card.

Like you, I knew better than to touch the registry in Windows 7 and
chose Window-eyes. I think now Jaws does something automatically to
make screen settings go to Windows basic, or perhaps the video card
update I did for Window-eyes made the difference, but no issues with Jaws.

Just glad you confirmed myfeeling of not touching the registry.

Unless something has drasticly changed between windows 7 and 10, no
screenreader will work in safe mode. This is because without extensive
modification, Windows does not load audio drivers in safe mode. So while the
screenreader may load, you very likely won't get anything out of it.

Problem Advancing Beyond First Page Of PDF Articles

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

 

I am having a problem reading a few PDF articles I have just been sent.

 

Once I open the attachments, via Adobe Acrobat DC, I find that I cannot advance beyond the first page of each article, either via the arrow keys, or the page up and page down keys.

 

Interestingly, when I use my arrow keys and the page up or down keys, the visual sscreen advances with no problem.  In other words, Jaws appears to be  stuck on the first page and is unable to advance through the rest of the file.

 

I’m using Windows 7 and the latest build of Jaws 18 here, along with Adobe Acrobat DC.

 

Any suggestions would be apreciated.

 

Dr.  Tom Behler from Michigan

SPSS, same issue here

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

Hello,

     I had the same issue of not being able to use SPSS very well; only allowed me to enter data. I had to have my reader/scribe click on the things I needed, so it’s a piece of work that needs to either be scrapped or redone to more easily work with JAWS. Hey, even the people at my university’s disability center/technology center said that the screen reader didn’t work with all things.

and sign in and then go to the recently added books you will see this problem. Once on the recently added books hit the headings hot key H and you will get on a date. At least on my system it reads as I described.

That is very weird. No date setting I know should result in giving a double

Center for the Default configuration...

Insert+F2
Arrow to Settings Center
Enter
Ctrl+D to work on the default configuration
type date in the edit field
Tab to the list and find the item that tells how JAWS reads the date.
Press spacebar to change to another type.

Re: Win 7 VS win 10

 

Mario,

       Again, I cannot answer that question because use of the download manager is typically something that gets set in the browser itself.  I do not use them though I will occasionally call up the download manager after I've finished downloading something.

       You seem to have IE configured such that when a download is requested it automatically opens the download manager.  I have not used Internet Explorer in years so I cannot tell you where to look in settings for this.

Unless something has drasticly changed between windows 7 and 10, no
screenreader will work in safe mode. This is because without extensive
modification, Windows does not load audio drivers in safe mode. So while the
screenreader may load, you very likely won't get anything out of it.

touching the registry was Re: safe mode

Brenda <bjnite@...>
 

Interesting Ted about not touching the registry.

When I was investigating which screen reader to purchase, I got the windows blue screen of death. The Jaws tech said to change something in the registry. The Window-Eyes tech told me how to update the video card.

Like you, I knew better than to touch the registry in Windows 7 and chose Window-eyes. I think now Jaws does something automatically to make screen settings go to Windows basic, or perhaps the video card update I did for Window-eyes made the difference, but no issues with Jaws.

Just glad you confirmed myfeeling of not touching the registry.

Re: Win 7 VS win 10

Mario
 

the problem I'm having is when I enter on the link in your email,
Internet Explorer is launched, JAWS asks what do I want to do, but I
can't select what I want to do because the download manager is opened
and I can't get out of it because if I tab and spacebar on the close
button, IE itself closes.

I got the document saved but the problem I experienced is not normal.
why does the download manager open instead of JAWS asking me to "press
alt+n..."?

Mario,

I can't answer your question. The links I post are direct
download links for MS-Word documents that reside on my Google Drive. In
any browser when I activate them what pops up is the "Save" dialog that
allows you to navigate to wherever you want to save the document and
save it.

These have been the same "forever" now and the behavior has
been 100% consistent when I test it under Firefox, Chrome, Edge, or IE11.

Sounds like someone from Her Majesty's Secret Service. Just imagine that; this technology has been talked around in computer circles since the '70's, but I still find it amazing.

Harking back to Sharon's earlier comment about talking books, I used Daniel once to read War of the Worlds, thinking it would sound better coming from a Brit. I actually read the whole book that way, and it sounded good.

Well, "sexy" is in the ear of the beholder, that's for sure.

I've found some of the "foreign" (for the United States) accented voices
on Garmin, particularly one of the British female and Australian male,
voices to be rather mellifluous and somewhat sexy. Everyone's mileage
will, of course, vary,

I don't find, for instance, the SAPI voice "Microsoft David" that I use
with NVDA "sexy" but I do find it, in many instances, particularly when
it's reading through something at beyond the letter or word levels to be
remarkably lifelike in most instances.

Not knowing the synthesizers that various people are using it's
impossible to suggest generic ways to search for a "sexy" voice for
them, but I'd be willing to bet that someone has created them, even if
they're not commercially available, but it's a matter of finding them.
Inflection, breathiness (or lack thereof), and vowel duration are a lot
of what get's tagged as "sexy" when you think about voices in real
people that are described as sexy. These are parameters that it's
possible to control in a speech synthesizer.

It would be an absolute riot to create a "femme fatale" or the male
counterpart thereof synthesized voices for use with anything, screen
reader or not. I don't think that anyone would use the most "over the
top" versions for any period of time, but they could make for great
entertainment value over a short term.
