JAWS 18.0.2118 ... now can sign into chase.com

Ann Byrne
 

Recently due to changes on their web site, I have only been able to sign in to chase.com with NVDA. Once I was signed in, JAWS worked fine. With the .2118 version of JAWS 18, I can once again use JAWS on the sign in screen.

Hi,

Good news, JAWS is very accessible in Google docs and sheets. I use them often, I would use Firefox, that is the browser that works best for me when using docs and sheets. JAWS works much better and is much more snappy in docs and sheets if you use Firefox.

Re: Music program software

Dave...
 

Yes, and it's not a blind product, it's a mainstream product for producing
professional scores. You can step through the music, note by note to learn
the pitch and duration, as well as playing it back at any rate of speed. But
if all you want is that capability, Sibelius may be over the top. There are
some simpler MIDI music programs out there to help learn the notation.

Your options for notation software are as follows:
Sibelius Access is a set of Jaws scripts you can use to work with notated
music in Sibelius. Though work is being done to update them, for right now
you'd need to run version 5.02 of Sibelius to use them. Do a search on the
web for Sibelius Access and you should find both the scripts and also the
mailing list that will help you navigate through getting things set up.
Lime Aloud is another option, and will give you more capability in creating
Braille music. Talk to the folks at Dancing Dots about this option.
There's no current option I know of for Finale, Encore, Score, or
Steinberg's new notation program. (the name escapes me at the moment for the
last one)
Pro Tools is inaccessible with Jaws -- you'll need a Mac and Voiceover to do
anything with it for now. The same goes for Logic, as it's also a Mac only
option. (There is no current version of Logic for Windows or any other
non-Apple operating system) Reaper is the popular option right now for blind
audio users, though Samplitude is also accessible with the addition of
scripts and hot keys. Sonar is also an option, but you'll need an older
version, as development of Cake Talking hasn't kept up with the versions.
Also note that Audacity is fully blind accessible too.

Another way to have acces to the most used app/programs is to put them on the taskbar. This works for both Windows 7 and Windows 10 as long as you know the order your applications are in on the taskbar. If you do, for example, have Internet Explorer, Outlook, Word, Excel, Skype, Itunes and Notepad, you have a total of 7 applications on the taskbar and all you have to do to quickly and easily access them is to press and hold the Windows key and press numbers 1 through 7. For example, Windows+1 would open Internet Explorer, Windows+2 would open Outlook, Windows+3 is Word all the way to Windows+7 for Notepad.

As you become more familiar with Windows 10, you will likely appreciate how easy it is to access the universal apps and desktop applications you use every

day … assuming you do so from either Start or the taskbar. But one thing Windows 10 doesn’t provide is a way to create a shortcut to these apps so you

can launch them from the desktop or elsewhere.

 

Or, at least an obvious way.

 

But as it turns out, all of the applications installed on your PC, including the universal apps that come with Windows 10 or are downloaded from Windows

Store are accessible from a hidden shell view called Applications.  Once you open this view in File Explorer, you can create shortcuts for any of them. Open the Run dialog (Windows+R=run), type in:

shell:AppsFolder

 

and then press enter  to view this folder.

 

apps-folder

 

Find an app you wish to create a shortcut for, right-click  (applications key, or, shift+f10 and choose Create shortcut from the pop-up menu that appears.

 

create-shortcut

 

You’ll be prompted that the shortcut cannot be placed here, and Windows will recommend placing it on the desktop instead. Press enter on  Yes. A shortcut with the name App-Name  Shortcut (Mail Shortcut) will appear on the desktop. You can leave this as-is, or rename it (I usually remove the word, Shortcut). And you can of course move the shortcut to any folder as needed.

 

Now, just repeat for all the app shortcuts you need.

There are four different ways to use Convenient OCR, the "D" option you

If you use Jaws Key+Space and O you can also use "C" which does OCR on a

I usually try the "S" or "W" and see what gets me better results.

Subject: OK what's this pop up I just got and ain't accessible?

A pop up of sorts just came up on my laptop running windows 7, JAWS 16.0 In
which all JAWS will tell me is: UNC Server.

I tried firing up the JAWS OCR, but it doesn't seem to be able to read?
Insert Space Bar; O, D. Then all I hear is a high pitched ding dong doorbell
like sound.



I thought this new JAWS OCR could read something like this?



Any idea of what this "UNC Server" is?

Or if I'm doing anything wrong with my JAWS OCR?

The other choice is the VIP web site. However, the latest music software has some problems of it's own. The people that create HSC scripts are updateing them now.

Note that that's the last version of Sonar supported by Cake Talking. And though Dancing Dots was once a strong resource for information for folks looking for accessible music options, there are a lot of other options out there that they don't support, some of which are current versions of the software instead of several versions back.

If you’re looking for any type of music software, you can go to http://www.dancingdots.com. You will find a large collection of software to fit your needs to include any type of DAW work station.

They all work with Jaws up through Jaws 17. Jaws 18.0 hasn’t been tested yet for Cake talking, and I’m not Shure about the other programs. The good people at Dancing Dots will tell you. I only have Cake talking for Sonar 8.5, and have used it for years.

Re: OK what's this pop up I just got and ain't accessible?

 

There are four different ways to use Convenient OCR, the "D" option you describe only works on a PDF document as Mario already said.
If you use Jaws Key+Space and O you can also use "C" which does OCR on a control element, "S" which does OCR on the entire screen and "W" which as Mario pointed out will do OCR in the currently active window.
I usually try the "S" or "W" and see what gets me better results.

Regards,
Sieghhard

I just tried Insert, O then W. It seemed to work. But all it said was something like:
Copy and maybe paste format. Like it had something to do with Microsoft word? I did have word running in the background.
I gave up on it and closed out the box.

Thanks for your help though, I'll remember that Insert Space Bar O W command.

why do you press d when trying the ocr feature? isn't it used when performing the ocr on a "empty" PDF?

I would imagine w would be more appropriate since it's for the active window.

you can also try, but I think you've already did, pressing insert+b.

Thanks for that, I figured the mailing list could step the interested party through the downgrade process, as it involves some steps.

Note, that the correct Sibelius version is 5.2.5. And it needs to be requested as a downgrade after purchasing the current version.

Your options for notation software are as follows:
Sibelius Access is a set of Jaws scripts you can use to work with notated
music in Sibelius. Though work is being done to update them, for right now
you'd need to run version 5.02 of Sibelius to use them. Do a search on the
web for Sibelius Access and you should find both the scripts and also the
mailing list that will help you navigate through getting things set up.
Lime Aloud is another option, and will give you more capability in creating
Braille music. Talk to the folks at Dancing Dots about this option.
There's no current option I know of for Finale, Encore, Score, or
Steinberg's new notation program. (the name escapes me at the moment for the
last one)
Pro Tools is inaccessible with Jaws -- you'll need a Mac and Voiceover to do
anything with it for now. The same goes for Logic, as it's also a Mac only
option. (There is no current version of Logic for Windows or any other
non-Apple operating system) Reaper is the popular option right now for blind
audio users, though Samplitude is also accessible with the addition of
scripts and hot keys. Sonar is also an option, but you'll need an older
version, as development of Cake Talking hasn't kept up with the versions.
Also note that Audacity is fully blind accessible too.
