Re: wireless headsets and keyboards are at risk too.

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

There are capture programs to do that very thing, and send it to a remote location. That's a pretty specific hack, though. If that's what's happening, it's not a rank stranger. It occurs to me as I write this that we're straying far from the strait and narrow here.

Someheadsets do have longer range, but nowadays usually are digital and once again it would not be very straight forward to intercept this and listen, but even if one could this would not give anybody access to your Facebook account or other accounts which would only be possible if they can somehow record what you type on your keyboard.

Re: wireless headsets and keyboards are at risk too.

 

Hi Tony,

I am Not saying that the NSA or some sophisticated hacker can't do all sorts of things. But I wonder why they would want to go through all that trouble to gain access to my (or Laura's) Facebook account. If they can why not steel her banking password and transfer all her money to them. Now, as for 50 years ago, that would be in 1967, I mean, really? I know theoretically computers existed then, but there certainly was no bluetooth or much of anything wireless at that time and I'm sure a few security advances were made in terms of encryption and so on since then.
Somebody can also set up a van a few hundred feet from your house, point a highly sophisticated laser at your window and hear everything that is said in your house. If you want to avoid any of this you better don't go online or, for that matter own a computer.

Regards,
Sieghard

While I use both Bluetooth keyboards and audio devices, you have vastly understated the danger of information being intercepted with these devices.

There are Bluetooth and rf specs used by some devices that work over distances of more than 300 ft. With good equipment and a focusing antenna these signals can probably be received more than a mile from the devices.

I know of one instance the nave setup a van several hundred feet outside a secured computer center in Norfolk, VA and were able to duplicate data entered on keypunches inside the building,. They were able to determine with machine was used for what data. That was over 50 years ago.

Re: FW: Buying more voices

Soronel Haetir
 

My experience is that it renders find but that understanding speed
simply can not keep up.

I am talking about things like math equations, I simply must go item
by item to make sure that I am getting the groupings and operators
right in my head.

Same for other values like dollar amounts or addresses. And for those
it really doesn't matter if I set the render speed slower, that if I
try and pick those out of other text on the fly that I am very error
prone even though I hear everything fine.

that depends on the voice you use. some are basey and harder to understand.

others, mainly the mens voices are much clearer. i do not see the need for

Since these voices cost $115, are they really clear when speaking numbers

very specific items like reading many addresses at higher speeds?

Some people say Eloquence does the best at higher speeds in terms of reading

accuracy.

because
I have "Gold Wave", an audio software that comes with a text-to-speech
converter, and it seems the only voices I can get to work in there are the
SAPI
voices I've installed on my machine. I've tried installing the Realspeak
voices
from the CD that came with JAWS 8.0, but it says these versions will only
work
on 32-bit operating systems. I want to try putting registry keys for these
voices in the Registry Editor, but I'm not sure if this will actually work.
What can I do next?

Re: Jaws settings backup file

 

No, it's not tied to you but it maybe of limited value because your settings may include settings for programs which your friend doesn't have, it may include settings for websites he or she doesn't go to and it could contain settings specific to your system which may not apply such as dictionary definitions, custom highlight assignments and so on. But you can try it, probably it won't hurt, of course your friend would also have to like your selections for the voices including pitch, speed and all that. If you want to do it and you are both using Jaws 18 the best way to do this would be for you to go to the Jaws menu > Utilities > Import/Export and choose Export. You then send this file to your friend and they would go to the same place and choose "Import", browse to where they saved the file and import it.

Re: Jaws settings backup file

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

There's a feature that's been around awhile now called Settings packager. Look under JAWS F2, and check the help section. I must admit I've never used it, so I'm sure someone else will chime in.

Re: Opening Outlook attachments

 

For me autofill works regardlss of how many words there are. The only time where I have to type more before it kicks in is if two separate phrases start the same way. Here are some examples:

 

If I type “Scotia Bank Visa” once and then start typing it again I most likely only have to type “Sc” before the autofill kicks in.

If I now want to type “Scotia Bank Line of Credit”, I will get the autofill for “Scotia Bank Visa” while I type “Scotia Bank”, only after I press the space bar and type the “L” for the word “Line” will the autofill end and I can finish typing “Line of Credit”.

Now having typed both phrases, autofill will not kick in when I type “Scotia Bank”, it will only kick in and fill the rest of the words if I type “V” or “L” after Scotia Bank and the spacebar. In the case of “Scotia Bank Visa” it will only complete the “isa” of “Visa”, in the case of “Line of Credit” it will autofill “ine of credit” after I type the “L”.

I hope this makes sense.

Sieghard

Hi,

 

Can’t you just press Control + S in a protected document to unprotect it? You will be prompted to allow saving or something like that. Should work in Excel too, I think.

 

If you want to fill cells with the same info, in your example, type “Lunch” in the first cell. Then, press Control + G to open the “Go to Cell” dialogue box and type in the last cell you want. Press Shift + enter and that range will be selected. If the cells you wish to fill with “lunch” are below the cell you are in, press Control + D to fill down. If the cells are to the right, press Control + R to fill right.

You can also try Jaws Key+A when you are in an open message, it usually put focus on the attachments list.

You can then use right arrow or left arrow to move around, Jaws says “Press Alt+Down arrow for more options” and either that or Shift+F10 will open the menu where you have things like “Open”, “Save As”, “Save All Attachments”, “Remove Attachment” etc.

Re: Getting Jaws to recognize highlight bars

Shannon
 

Hi Netbat,
I have found that but without JAWS reporting the correct colors it is not working at all.
In fact in a different program all, every curser, reports black on black. This is the standard Windows color scheme so it can't possibly be true.
I have made sure that the highlight bar is on or rather under the mouse curser and tried the custom highlight insert, ctrl H as well as the insert F2 and it will not report the highlighted item.

And something is really screwy here. Trying to reply to you JAWS would not read anything that I had typed in this reply. I had to shut JAWS off and turn WE back on to finish this message.
Could this be because I have been messing with highlight colors?
Ugh this is so complicated! Smile

Hi all,



I have royally messed up. I was using WE in my accounting program and couldn’t
get Jaws to see the highlight bar in the menus of the program. I know that the
colors of the program can be changed so I played around trying to get JAWS to
see the color as I arrow up and down but when I did that I broke WE and now it
won’t read it anymore.

As far as the mouse in JAWS it refuses to say anything but blank and insists
that the color if It will even try is black on black. This I know is not true.
I can’t get JAWS to find text that I know is on the screen and that It will
read out with insert B.

If I can’t get the mouse to report anything but blank and black on black how do
I set the highlight color so it will read the highlight bar of the menu?

The touch curser is useless in this case. It will not find the menu at all.



Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

You can also try Jaws Key+A when you are in an open message, it usually put focus on the attachments list.

You can then use right arrow or left arrow to move around, Jaws says “Press Alt+Down arrow for more options” and either that or Shift+F10 will open the menu where you have things like “Open”, “Save As”, “Save All Attachments”, “Remove Attachment” etc.

Danney:

 

I’m  using Outlook 2016, but you should be able to access all attachments by first doing a shift-tab, and then, once in the attachments list, use your right and left arrow keys to get the names of those attachments.

 

At least,  this has always worked for me.

 

Am using  Jaws 18 here.

Using JAWS 18 and Outlook 2013.  When I tab over to see attachments, can rarely gat JAWS to read me the titles, might read the first one or two, but not those remaining.  How can I get a display of the attachments?

Thanks forany help,

Danney

You can just press the Windows key and then start typing “Downloads” in the search field! :)

This is interesting.  I downloaded Sumatra, but can’t find it.  It didn’t ask me where I wanted it, so I assume it’s in Downloads.  Anybody remember how to go there—embarrassing!

Sounds interesting.  I tried one a while back from the same British outfit that brought us the Thunder screen reader.  It would read just about anything, but navigation was awful.  You just started at the beginning and plowed straight through.  Heaven help you if you had to stop and close the reader.  Forget trying to get back where you were.

I am more interested in this: Sumatra PDF
 
SumatraPDF is well-known as probably the simplest, fastest PDF reader available for Windows. It's small so it loads things fast, and can be run from a USB drive. But it's more than PDFs. It also reads comic book files (in CBZ and CBR formats) and ebooks (ePub and Mobi files), among other things.

Hi Tim,

 

They don't just talk about 1 piece of software / program, they discuss many programs for doing different things, & rate them.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Does anyone have any feedback on whether this new product is indeed accessible?
