I have made Word my default PDF reader. I haven't encountered problems, but
that of course doesn't mean I won't encounter them. I find it far preferable
to Adobe Reader.

Hi. I open PDFs in Adobe Reader. JAWS sometimes jumps around of its own
accord in pdfs, especially when transitioning from one page to another. and
has to be redirected. Even jaws 2020. While I am able to bring it back where
I need to when it jumps, I remain quite worried. That I might miss some
vital info or internalize it wrongly if I fail to notice the jump. Does
anyone else face this? How do you get around it? Converting every pdf into

With notepad and qread, para-wise navigation is not possible. And reading the document line by line or through say all are both not good ideas. If you open it in word, it can sometimes miss things. I have seen this happen.

Sometimes, you have to try something else instead of
Infer reading order from document (recommended)

This means choosing from one of the two remaining options,

Left-to-right, top-to-bottom reading order

Use reading order in raw print stream

Usually, if you choose one of the other two options, it renders the pdf
better than
Infer reading order from document

it's really meant for very simple documents only. It doesn't really have

I understand that it appears that Dictation Bridge for JAWS is a product, but it does not in fact work. Lucy Greko, one of those who spearheaded the project, confirmed this when I met year last year. The project ran out of funding, and development was still necessary for the JAWS version.  I think some people can use it, experienced users, but it is not for everybody as the project intended.

Hi. A free version of Dictation Bridge is also available for JAWS.

Hartgen Consultancy has two solutions for using JAWS with Dragon. J-Dictate is for people who want to use Dragon for dictation into programs such as Word, Outlook, etc., who are comfortable or able to use their computer keyboard.

J-Say not only allows for voice dictation but it allows a user to completely control their computer with all commands, both for Windows as well as for JAWS. The programs from Hartgen Consultancy are specific to JAWS whereas Dictation Bridge has a separate addon for NVDA.

I've been using DuckDuckGo for years, and I have it installed as my default search engine on every browser I use.  In the Chromium-based browsers, I also have the DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension installed.

To my knowledge, there is no DuckDuckGo Browser for the PC platform.  They have introduced one for Android, though:  DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser for Android.  All of the sites talking about using this for Windows end up talking about using an Android Emulator to run it, which is way more trouble than it's worth since.

In the PC world, it's a search engine and/or browser extension, but not a full-blown web browser.

They will be controlling mine, so hopefully all will go fine.

Richard, I have not seen any current JAWS scripts for Team Viewer.

 

If someone is going to control your computer you really don’t n needs scripts for JAWS but, if you are intending to control another users computer, I don’t know how accessible Team Viewer will be for you.

I need to use Teamviewer to get help on a braille display from the company.

Are there scripts for the latest Teamviewer and Jaws 2020?

The Doug Lee scripts don’t think I have any compatible Jaws, but then again, those scripts are from 2015.

 

Any help would be appreciated.
