Hi,

these registry keys came out in May 2011
the Window Eyes programmers then got a hold of the keys & included them in Window Eyes,
the Jaws programmers could not do this due to the video driver that Jaws uses

once the keys are installed
Narrator will work in safe mode but NVDA is much better.

Interesting. Some say Window Eyes will work in sage mode regardless of this modification? Is this accurate? Also, will the below work with Narrator in most current version or does one need NVDA?

Hi to all,

attached is the Registry key you need to have sound in safe mode.
below are the instructions on what to do

I have been using this for years & it works great,
all it does is creat the same audio registry keys you have in normal mode in
the safe mode registry tree.
So then audio is told to start up in safe mode.
I have used this on all the windows versions since xp both 32 & 64 bit & it
works great.

depending on how you want to run the keys I have written 2 different
instructions below


1. the attached file is a text file and it is the keys you need to put into
the safe mode registry tree.
I am sending it as a text file so the email servers hopefully let it through
as an attachment.
If I send it as an attached registry file it will never be aloud through.

you need to change this text file to a registry file by changing the
extention of the
file.
this is the last 3 letters of the file after the full stop, .txt
you need to change the .txt to be .reg
So save the attached file to your computer somewhere, may be the desktop,
now go to the place where you have saved the attached file & rename it by
changing the extention from .txt to .reg
so the file name after you have changed it will be
Activate Sound in SafeMode.reg

now just hit enter on the file Activate Sound in SafeMode.reg
and you will get a window asking if you want to make changes to the
registry, you need to press yes
now another window will come up you need to press ok.
now you can reboot & go into safe mode & you will have sound.
jaws will not work due to the video driver not loading but you can use NVDA
as the screen reader
So download NVDA and set it up before you boot into safe mode.


2. if the attached file doesnt get to you because the admin of this list
doesnt allow attachments, then do the following

I have pasted the text of the registry file below,
you just need to coppy & paist the below into a notepad document & then save
it as a .reg file.

once you have pasted the below into notepad,
press control s for save,
then tab once to save as type & change this to all files,
now shift tab back into the file name edit box and name the file what ever
you want & make sure the last 3 letters of the file name are .reg
for example you can name it something like
sound in safe mode.reg

so coppy everything below between the lines of stars,
do not coppy the lines of stars

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.

Re: JAWS & the % of download?

 

That does not apply in Chrome since the download progress is not displayed until you press Control+J and then it’s displayed on a virtual webpage, I have Progress announcements on and it won’t announce download progress in Chrome, you have to check it manually.

I just went to the FS website and downloaded Jaws using Chrome, then I went to the downloads page by pressing Control+J and here is what I got from the Jaws speech history afterwards:

Hi David,

 

Yes, there is a setting, but it takes a little more than just this setting.  1st press, Insert / Jaws key + 6, on the number row to open the Settings Center, then press, control, shift, + D, to open Settings Center default all applications.

2. Arrow down to, User, right arrow to open.

3. Arrow down to, Progress Updates Announcement, & press the spacebar to toggle through your options.  If you want an explanation of this, tab 1 time to Read only, & this is what you'll get.

Programs often use progress bars to show the status of a process, such as an installation. Select an interval in this list to determine how often JAWS announces the state of progress bars during a process. Select "Announce All" if you want JAWS to read progress bars as changes occur. Select "Off" if you do not want to hear progress bar information. The default is to announce progress bar updates at 5 second Intervals.

4. If you make any changes tab to, Okay, & press enter to save & close.

 

Now, these keystrokes are for IE11 when downloading:

After starting the download press, control + J.  Now, press any of these keystroke combinations to get the percentage / status of the download:

Insert + Tab.

Insert + B.

Insert + T.

 

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Subject: JAWS & the % of download?

 

When downloading a file is it possible for JAWS to tell you the percentage of the download?  Or, is it browser driven.  Google does not tell you how much has been downloaded, it tells you nothing till you try to close it.  The same is true for Firefox.  However, Google is the worst of the 2. Both just tell you a file is being downloaded, “Are you sure you want to exit?” So, since I am new to JAWS, I want to know if there is a setting that will tell me the completion percentage of the file being downloaded.    


Re: Convenient OCR

 

If you install Jaws from a disk it installs automatically and if you have an active internet connection when you install Jaws after downloading the executable file it will also install.
You invoke it with the layered keystroke Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by O and then "D" if you want to recognize a PDF document that is open in Acrobat Reader.
You can't recognize JPEG, Bitmap, PNG files or other images which are open in Windows Photoviewer or other applications the same way you can recognize an entire PDF document in Acrobat Reader. You can, however, open the image file and try to use the command to recognize what is on the screen or in the Window using "S" or "W" instead of "D" after pressing Jaws Key+Spacebar and O.
Alternatively, you could use an online converter to convert the JPG, PNG or other file to PDF, then open it with Acrobat Reader and run convenient OCR. It's a very powerful feature.

Steps taken:
located the file in my user folder
pressed jaws key plus spacebar
pressed O and then D


I did the same thing again today. When I get to the press of the d, I
get a sound and nothing happens. Is it possible I a) either made a

Re: Is it possible to change the pitch of Eloquence?

 

No, you can’t change the pitch of the All Contexts voice, but as long as you set each of the 4 voices to the same voice, voice rate and pitch it is essentially the same thing and it takes about 20 seconds to do it.

There is no volume setting for the different voices for the Eloquence synthesizer, if you use Vocalizer voices they do have a volume setting.

You can use system volume to raise or lower the volume either for the entire system or, if you go into the volume control you can set the volume for Jaws separately.

Sieghard

So are you saying you can’t change the all context voice at all? I would prefer all my voice settings be the same. I personally don’t want a different voice for the pc, jaws cursor, touch, tutor messages, etc. I’d like to also be able to then change this all context voice settings as well. Can that be done?

 

How do you change the voice volume? I couldn’t find any setting for that?

 

Thanks everybody.

Subject: Re: Is it possible to change the pitch of Eloquence?

 

What Carol calls the default cursor is actually called the “All Context” voice. Here is where you can adjust the upper pitch change.

The rest is correct, when you go to Voice Adjustment and press Alt+V to get to the voices combo box you land on “All Context”, if you listen to all Jaws says you hear this:

 

Voice Adjust: Combo box, All Contexts, 1 of 5, To change the selection use the Arrow keys.

So you are told that you are in a Combo box and to use the arrow keys to change the selection. If you arrow down you find the following options:

PC Cursor Voice

JAWS Cursor Voice

Keyboard Voice

Tutor and Message Voice

These are the 4 voices you can adjust independently, below are the things you can change for each:

Voice Person: Combo box, Reed, 1 of 8, To change the selection use the Arrow keys.
Voice Rate: 101 left right slider, 55 percent, To increase or decrease use the Arrow keys.

Voice Punctuation: Combo box, Most, 3 of 4, To change the selection use the Arrow keys.

Voice Pitch: 41, left right slider 40 percent, To increase or decrease use the Arrow keys.

The main one you want to change is the PC cursor voice, but of course the default Jaws cursor voice to me is also strange sounding and I use the above settings for all 4 voices as I don’t care to have a different voice for PC and Jaws cursor or for how the keyboard sounds when I press keys or for how messages sound.

If you want to quickly get to pitch just tab 4 times once you get to the voice you want to adjust. Don’t forget to tab to “OK” or “Apply” to save the changes.

Sieghard

Re: Eloquence pitch in jaws?
Yes, this can be done.  My instructions may not be the best, but I think you can figure it out since you have already been in the Jaws options and found
the voice settings.  From within the voices setting, choose voice adjustment.
Press alt-v to get to the combo box where you choose which cursor you want to modify.
you will get to an option where you can down arrow through options for default cursor, PC cursor, Jaws cursor, etc.
You can not have the option set to default.  After choosing the cursor you want to set, tab until you find the pitch setting. This is the next tab after
the punctuation setting.
You change it with the arrow keys.
Once you have it set, tab to save as and give it a name, something you will recognize, like Glen pitch 44  and press enter on OK.
You will be asked if you want to set this for the default.  Enter on yes or OK, I forgot what it is called at this point.
Now, you will have access to that voice whenever you want to use it.

Re: PDF Files

 

Hi Miranda,

If you already have the PDF open in Acrobat Reader and you have Jaws 18 all you have to do is press the layered keystroke Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by "O" and then "D".
Below is the entire content of the help topic on convenient OCR which I believe was introduced as a new feature in Jaws 13 and which is one of the things which makes Jaws a very powerful screen reader, I use this feature often several times a day, it's a life saver if you have to work with lots of PDF files many of which are still not accessible.
You can easily get to these help topics by invoking the Jaws menu with Jaws Key+J, then press "H" for Help and "J" for Jaws Help Topics" or you can arrow down to Help, press the right arrow to expand the menu and then arrow to Jaws Help Topics and press enter, but Jaws key+J and then H and J is a lot easier.
Here you have a list of books, you can expand any of them with the right arrow and then review the topics, press enter on any of the topics and then press F6 to jump to the Window where the information is displayed.
Here now what you would find if you were to do this for the Convenient OCR book and topic (in this case the book only has one topic with the same name):

Convenient OCR
Frequently, you will encounter images that contain textual information. These can include a PDF file, the setup screen of an application, or the menu of selections for a DVD movie. While these images contain text that is readable by a sighted person, JAWS is unable to read the text as it is part of the image.

The Convenient OCR (Optical Character Recognition) feature enables you to access any image on the screen that includes text, or recognize all of the text in a PDF document. With just a few simple keystrokes, JAWS will recognize the image in a matter of seconds and activate the JAWS cursor so you can navigate the resulting text. The recognized text will be in the same location as the actual image on the screen. In order to differentiate the recognized text from other text that may be in the window, JAWS will use a different voice when it encounters the recognized text. When you activate the PC cursor, or switch to another application or dialog box, the text is removed and you will need to perform the OCR again.

If you open a PDF document and there is no text available to read, you can perform a keystroke that will recognize the entire document and place the resulting text into the Results Viewer for reading. You can then use standard reading commands to review the text or select and copy sections of content for pasting in other applications.

To use Convenient OCR, the following layered keystrokes are available:

INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, D. Recognizes the currently open PDF document.
INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, W. Recognizes the current application window that has focus.
INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, S. Recognizes the entire screen.
INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, C. Recognizes the currently selected control, such as a graphical button.
INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, Q. Cancels recognition while it is in progress.
INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, QUESTION MARK. Speaks a brief help message describing the commands in the OCR layer.
The following examples illustrate just some of the uses of this feature.

You insert a DVD movie into your computer which brings up a menu allowing you to select from various DVD features. You press INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, W and after a few seconds, JAWS will alert you that OCR is complete. At this point, the JAWS cursor will be active and you can navigate around the screen using the ARROW keys and read the text of the menu. When you hear the option you want, press NUMPAD SLASH to perform a left-mouse-click, or INSERT+NUMPAD PLUS to route PC to JAWS to activate the option. Prior to JAWS 13, this menu would have been completely inaccessible.
Note: Depending on the type of screen the DVD displays and the quality of the text, the Convenient OCR may not always work. Some DVD screens will be recognized better than others.

You open a PDF in Adobe Reader which turns out to be inaccessible. Press INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, D to have JAWS begin recognizing the entire document. After several seconds, the contents of the PDF file are displayed in the Results Viewer for reading. Use standard reading commands to review the text or select and copy sections of content for pasting in other applications. For example, you could select all, then copy and paste into a Microsoft Word document, which you could then save.
Note: The OCR process takes longer for larger PDF files. As text is recognized, it is added to the end of the existing text already in the Results Viewer. This allows you to continue reading without interruption as the document is processed. If you are currently not reading using Say All, JAWS announces the current line as new text is added to the Results Viewer to indicate that OCR is still in progress.

Note: If the PDF document requires a password, you will be prompted to enter it when you first press INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, D. You must enter the correct password before the OCR process will continue.

You try to install or use an application whose interface is not accessible, such as Acronis(r) True Image(tm) Home 2011 or 2012. If no text is readily available when pressing TAB or when using the JAWS Cursor, you can try Convenient OCR. Start with the PC Cursor and press INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, W to recognize the text of the welcome screen graphic. You can then use the JAWS Cursor and NUMPAD SLASH (left mouse button) to move to and choose what are possible buttons and links.
If you are not getting clear recognition results or you find that text is running together when you recognize the current screen, window, or control, refer to FAQ 63556 for ways to optimize performance. When recognizing a PDF document, Convenient OCR does not use the physical image that is currently visible on the screen, so the recognition results feature a higher degree of accuracy since they are not affected by the current screen resolution.

Note that to correctly recognize text in other languages, you can configure the primary and secondary OCR language. The Convenient OCR settings are in the main tree view in Settings Center. When you expand this item, you have Primary Recognition Language and Secondary Recognition Language settings. Use the SPACEBAR to cycle through the available languages until you hear the one you want, or press F6 to move to the combo box and select a language.

When you install JAWS from the program disc, the OCR components are automatically installed. If you download JAWS from the Web site and have an active Internet connection when you begin the installation, the OCR components will be downloaded during the install. If you do not have an active Internet connection when you install JAWS from the Web download, a message is displayed at the end of the installation stating that some components were not installed. To use the OCR feature, establish an Internet connection and run the installation again so the OCR components are downloaded.

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 with JAWS 18. I have to read allot of documents in my Masters program and some appear to be inaccessible. I know nothing about OCR and would like to hear what the best way is to read PDF files with JAWS. I use Adobe to open the files. Thank you for any assistance.

Re: What Happened To AVG?

 

What is it you do? With Windows 7 you really only need professional if you connect to a domain, want to connect to your computer from another computer using Remote Desktop or want to use Bitlocker to encrypt your hard drive. There are a few other features of Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate which Home Premium does not have, but they are mostly nothing a normal user would need to worry about.

Windows Home Premium when using the 64 Bit version can address up to 16 Gb of RAM, Windows Professional and Ultimate can address up to 192 Gb of RAM, if your computer even supports 64 Bit it is unlikely it has more than 16 GB of RAM and if it only supports 32 Bit then it’s a mute point since any version of Windows 32 Bit can only address up to 3.5 Gb of RAM.

In summary, more is not necessarily better, if I remember correctly with XP there were more differences between the Home and Professional versions, but with Windows 7 and now Windows 10 this is not really important except for the above listed reasons.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

You can buy a retail copy of Windows 7 Home Premium on eBay for pretty cheap, in fact, I think I have a Home Premium key around I could give you, then just download the ISO from Microsoft and install it. Running Windows XP these days is pretty unsafe anyways since it gets no more security updates and so on. Here is a link for eBay:

Because the machine I have is no longer supported by Dell, as it was originally purchased in 2007. So that means I would have to get an entirely new machine.

The machine I have AVG on has Windows XP, and right this moment, I don't have $787 to upgrade it to Windows 7. For some reason, I've tried uninstalling AVG, but the installer stops after a few minutes and Microsoft creates an "Error Report". I tried "Debug", then restart the computer, then restart the uninstall process, but nothing changes. It's still stuck on the same error.

Not sure if that is what you want to do, but I would simply uninstall it and use the free anti-virus solution Microsoft provides. For Windows 7 it is called Security Essentials and you have to download it, if you have Windows 10 you have Windows Defender already built in to the OS.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I have AVG Antivirus Free Edition, and a recent update has rendered it inaccessible to JAWS. Specifically it did something where it won't let me access the menu from the System Tray like it used to. Also, I used to be able to fully access the main interface, but I think they messed with something where it's now made with Google Chrome. How do I get rid of AVG Zen? I have Antivirus Free, and it keeps telling me to renew my subscription. What's up with that? I don't have a paid subscription, and I don't think you would need one with AVG Antivirus Free.

Re: JAWS & the % of download?

 

Hi David,

 

You have to go to the downloads window with Control+J, when you use Chrome this is presented just as another web page and you can use the virtual cursor to see all your downloads and, for downloadsin progress you can see the download rate and download progress.

Subject: JAWS & the % of download?

 

When downloading a file is it possible for JAWS to tell you the percentage of the download?  Or, is it browser driven.  Google does not tell you how much has been downloaded, it tells you nothing till you try to close it.  The same is true for Firefox.  However, Google is the worst of the 2. Both just tell you a file is being downloaded, “Are you sure you want to exit?” So, since I am new to JAWS, I want to know if there is a setting that will tell me the completion percentage of the file being downloaded.

Steps taken:

I did the same thing again today.  When I get to the press of the d, I
get a sound and nothing happens.  Is it possible I a) either made a

David,

 

Let's be clear on this. JAWS does not do any scanning. You need a separate software package and a scanner to scan in a photograph from a hardcopy.

 

JAWS OCR will work on documents that have text, but will not work on a photographic images, whether its scanned in from hardcopy, or from a digital file on the computer;ter.

 

JAWS and OCR software packages do not do facial recognition.

 

You will also need.

Nothing to do with USB. Scanning in a photograph will create a graphical image with no JAWS interpretation.

Forget using it with JAWS on a computer.

I agree with Carolyn's suggestion, if you want the best quality results and
in an easy to manage file list, go to the nearest photo counter at a drug
store, and take your thumb drive. The images will carry sequential numbers,
and you can take notes as the clerk tells you what photo has what number.
At home, you can then rename the image file names to reflect what the photo
is about.

could scan them onto a computer - even at Walgreens. Actually, I believe
they have a service like that at Walgreens where they will do that for you.
Once you get it in your computer, then you have control of it, wherever you
want to send it, put it on a flash drive or SD card, whatever.

Re: Is it possible to change the pitch of Eloquence?

Andre
 

So are you saying you can’t change the all context voice at all? I would prefer all my voice settings be the same. I personally don’t want a different voice for the pc, jaws cursor, touch, tutor messages, etc. I’d like to also be able to then change this all context voice settings as well. Can that be done?

 

How do you change the voice volume? I couldn’t find any setting for that?

 

Thanks everybody.

Subject: Re: Is it possible to change the pitch of Eloquence?

 

What Carol calls the default cursor is actually called the “All Context” voice. Here is where you can adjust the upper pitch change.

The rest is correct, when you go to Voice Adjustment and press Alt+V to get to the voices combo box you land on “All Context”, if you listen to all Jaws says you hear this:

 

Voice Adjust: Combo box, All Contexts, 1 of 5, To change the selection use the Arrow keys.

So you are told that you are in a Combo box and to use the arrow keys to change the selection. If you arrow down you find the following options:

PC Cursor Voice

JAWS Cursor Voice

Keyboard Voice

Tutor and Message Voice

These are the 4 voices you can adjust independently, below are the things you can change for each:

Voice Person: Combo box, Reed, 1 of 8, To change the selection use the Arrow keys.
Voice Rate: 101 left right slider, 55 percent, To increase or decrease use the Arrow keys.

Voice Punctuation: Combo box, Most, 3 of 4, To change the selection use the Arrow keys.

Voice Pitch: 41, left right slider 40 percent, To increase or decrease use the Arrow keys.

The main one you want to change is the PC cursor voice, but of course the default Jaws cursor voice to me is also strange sounding and I use the above settings for all 4 voices as I don’t care to have a different voice for PC and Jaws cursor or for how the keyboard sounds when I press keys or for how messages sound.

If you want to quickly get to pitch just tab 4 times once you get to the voice you want to adjust. Don’t forget to tab to “OK” or “Apply” to save the changes.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Re: Eloquence pitch in jaws?
Yes, this can be done.  My instructions may not be the best, but I think you can figure it out since you have already been in the Jaws options and found
the voice settings.  From within the voices setting, choose voice adjustment.
Press alt-v to get to the combo box where you choose which cursor you want to modify.
you will get to an option where you can down arrow through options for default cursor, PC cursor, Jaws cursor, etc.
You can not have the option set to default.  After choosing the cursor you want to set, tab until you find the pitch setting. This is the next tab after
the punctuation setting.
You change it with the arrow keys.
Once you have it set, tab to save as and give it a name, something you will recognize, like Glen pitch 44  and press enter on OK.
You will be asked if you want to set this for the default.  Enter on yes or OK, I forgot what it is called at this point.
Now, you will have access to that voice whenever you want to use it.

Re: What Happened To AVG?

p tusing <ptusing@...>
 

Hi,

I  may not be on  your version.

 

But I have  A V G Zen.

 

The first step isto go to

Internet Security which JAWS speaks.

 

Then use  convenient o c r or tab to menu if JAWS speaks “menu”  if you can.

Convenient o c r is  JAWS insert + spacebar then hit o then s.

Open menu with JAWS mouse key and downarrow.

 

There are keystrokes for updating. I believe they might be  h and some  other key which are spoken.

 

I think these instructions are close to what will work.

Happy Holiday.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I have AVG Antivirus Free Edition, and a recent update has rendered it inaccessible to JAWS. Specifically it did something where it won't let me access the menu from the System Tray like it used to. Also, I used to be able to fully access the main interface, but I think they messed with something where it's now made with Google Chrome. How do I get rid of AVG Zen? I have Antivirus Free, and it keeps telling me to renew my subscription. What's up with that? I don't have a paid subscription, and I don't think you would need one with AVG Antivirus Free.

Re: Is it possible to change the pitch of Eloquence?

Thanks Carol. I was still on default. Had no idea I had to change them individually. I definitely like WE’S option that lets you change all voices at once. One thing. How do you change the volume? I assumed it would be an option in there as well, but it was not.

 

Thanks again,

Re: Eloquence pitch in jaws?
Yes, this can be done.  My instructions may not be the best, but I think you can figure it out since you have already been in the Jaws options and found
the voice settings.  From within the voices setting, choose voice adjustment.
Press alt-v to get to the combo box where you choose which cursor you want to modify.
you will get to an option where you can down arrow through options for default cursor, PC cursor, Jaws cursor, etc.
You can not have the option set to default.  After choosing the cursor you want to set, tab until you find the pitch setting. This is the next tab after
the punctuation setting.
You change it with the arrow keys.
Once you have it set, tab to save as and give it a name, something you will recognize, like Glen pitch 44  and press enter on OK.
You will be asked if you want to set this for the default.  Enter on yes or OK, I forgot what it is called at this point.
Now, you will have access to that voice whenever you want to use it.

for uppercase where you can input a percent. I haven't found anything else.

 
Along the same lines are there hot keys to rotor through the screen,
keyboard, mouse, virtual cursor settings. In Window-Eyes it was
control-Alt-arrows etc. Still trying to get used to things. I just activated
my copy today.

 
Much thanks,
