Hello,

Was wondering if anyone happens to know where can obtain a list of the commands to use with the sharky voice dictation program with jaws 2021?

Thanks.

Hi.  I work with Oracle when I have to do Database Management projects.  Unfortunately the only way to access it is through the CLI.  I have no idea about access where Toad is concerned.  I do not think there is any accessible GUI clients to help us manage databases and it's been like this since time imemorial.  Cheers!

Michael Walker
 

I am also not aware of specific jaws tutorials for power query. If you are proficient with jaws, you should be able to get started with power query. I just dove in and started using it. If it seems kind of slow, be mindful of the queries that you write when you pull data. Only pull the data that you need. Write the SQL that gets the data that you need.

I found just going into the sound card submenu in JAWS, and selecting the USB card, works fine for me.  It is a mystery why it doesn’t work for you. I’ve been using a second soundcard for at least 7 months now with no problems.

Hi group,

 

I hope everyone is doing well. I have my Jaws 2020 going through a USB sound card. I have all other sounds going through my default sound card to external speakers. I am running into times when Jaws gets set back to the default sound card and the system sounds come through my headphones. Or all sounds come through the default card (external speakers)  or through the headphones. Or Jaws goes through the default card and the system sounds through my headphones.

How can I get Jaws and Windows 10 to retain my settings? I need to keep this setup for hosting Zoom meetings.

I have downloaded System Volume View but haven’t installed it yet. Would working with this program to set profiles for different configurations be easier than working with the Win 10 settings?

 

Thanks for reading,

Hi, David. First off, I must tell you that I don't have Word 365. That said, though, I have seen this issue before. Do you have JAWS 20 on your system? Does Word 365 behave the same way with that screen reader, or another version of JAWS? Is your zoom level in Word set to 100%? Is your monitor's resolution set correctly?

I hope something I have said here leads to a solution for you.

This problem has not occurred for me in years and I'm a bit baffled by it.
Running Windows 10, version 2004, on a Dell OptiPlex 740, with Word 365
and JAWS 2021.
When I navigate across text with left arrow or right arrow JAWS will
sometimes say "blank" instead of what is under the cursor. The problem
is intermittent but it occurs often enough that I can usually make it
happen. I just noticed it this evening and I know it never occurred with
JAWS 2020. I don't remember if I've done a lot of cursor navigation
using Word and JAWS 2021 but I imagine that I must have done so. I'm not
sure if this is due to a problematic Word update. I've unloaded and
restarted JAWS but this did not fix the problem. Enhanced editor support
is enabled in Settings Center using the Word configuration. Of course, I
can repair/reinstall Word, JAWS or both but I'd rather see if another
fix is available before doing this.

When I needed assistive devices, The CNIB said they would not help me unless I signed a contract with them to assess me, say what devices I needed, deal with them exclusively and the final was they had to train me. One of the things I needed was JAWS. I viewed that as extortion. For the sighted it would be the equivalent of not being allowed to look at merchandise in a store unless you contractually agreed to purchase it from that dealership/vender. IMO, I'd stay as far away from the CNIB as I could. It was their constantly trying to hit a home run with government agencies, as in insisting the client needed something a lot more then they really did. That was their undoing. If the client has no vision, they hardly need a computer with hi-tech video graphics.

I, too, would like to update my SMA before year end, but do not know of

For anyone who lives in Canada, I'm hoping you can help me. My current  licence is good until version 2018, can I just update my licence, or will I have to  buy a whole new licence and copy of Jaws? Can I buy from Freedom Scientific,  or do I have to buy from a Canadian dealer? I really hope someone can help  me, as I've never done this before. Thanks Madison

Vispero announces new partnership with CNIB

TORONTO, November 4, 2020 – CNIB, Canada’s largest non-profit serving people with sight loss, has signed a new partnership agreement with Vispero, the world’s largest assistive technology provider for the visually impaired.

Vispero delivers a high-quality line of optical and video magnifiers; wearables; scanning and reading devices; and easy-to-use software designed and developed to deliver innovative solutions that enable blind and low vision individuals to reach their full potential.

“We are thrilled to partner with CNIB as our missions are both centered around empowering those who are blind or low vision live full independent lives,” says Corneliu Hoza, Managing Director of Optelec Canada. “We believe this partnership is instrumental in being able to bring accessibility technology to more individuals all across Canada.”

Through this partnership, people with sight loss across Canada will have greater access to Vispero’s products, including ones from their Freedom Scientific, Enhanced Vision, and Optelec brands as soon as they launch. Vispero’s products will be available through all of CNIB’s enterprises including CNIB Smartlife, CNIB Frontier Accessibility and its affiliate organization, Vision Loss Rehabilitation Canada. In this exciting partnership, CNIB becomes the exclusive supplier of Vispero products in select regions across the country.

In addition, Vispero will provide a dramatically increased training and support program for all CNIB and Vision Loss Rehabilitation Canada staff via webinars, phone support and internal education courses. Vispero will also be offering CNIB an expanded distribution of demonstration units so users can experience the products first-hand before making a selection. CNIB will also benefit from significantly improved delivery times so clients can get their Vispero products right when they need them.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Vispero,” says Shane Silver, Vice President of Social Enterprise and Innovation at CNIB. “Throughout our long history of working closely together, Vispero has always demonstrated their passion for delivering outstanding, innovative products and services. This partnership means that we will be able to ensure that Canadians with sight loss continue to have access to the right products as soon as they become available.”

I don't really either, David. I didn't think it was "ownership" eitehr as such but some kind of agreed-upon partnership between all these companies. But in the end, it hardly seems to matter for international customers.
