Re: firefox

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

I’m thinking that is a subjective question.

 

I’m sure you will get several answers so here’s mine.

 

I use both, IE and firefox but not chrome.  Never really cared for chrome honestly.  Firefox, I just use it for the capcha which is free and I’m aware of the rumola thing but I’m cheap.  Internet explorer has what brought me to the dance so I will say for me at least jaws works well.

Re: Jaws and ear pain

Tony
 

You have already tried most of the things I was going to suggest.

One thing does come to mind.

You might be suffering from a TMJ problem. That is the joint at the back of your jaws. With your teeth grinding and with the extra concentration you probably experience when using computer speech the muscle at the back of the jaw can tighten up. Being as close to the ears as the TMJ is it might be worth having this checked. A dentist can probably determine if that is your problem.

When I was in law school about 20 years ago and really having to use computer speech my dentist told me that I have "world class jaw muscles." I had to wear a plastic splint between my upper and lower teeth at night to allow the TMJ to relax so that it didn't bother me during the day.

I quit wearing the splint shortly after law school and only have the jaw problem occasionally now even though I use computer speech more than ever.

Subject: Jaws and ear pain

Hi all.

(This is my first message, so I beg your pardon if this group is not the right place for such a question).

I am a new user of JAWS and I have a weird problem: my ears hurt when I try to use JAWS for longer than 3-4 hours a day. I am wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this and if there are any suggestions on how to solve or alleviate the problem?

Here is my story in more details. Recently I developed some eyesight problems. I have taught myself to use JAWS, but quickly figured out, that after 3-4 hours of daily usage my ears start to hurt. I tried different voices - no difference, my ears start to hurt after about the same time no matter what the voice is. I tried male, female, human-like and synthesized voices - all alike. I tried voiceover on mac too, same result. The volume is set to minimum at which I can still recognize words, so it is not loud at all. I tried laptop speakers, external speakers, headphones - no difference. I have seen a few ear doctors, but none of them have any idea what's going on. I don't have any other ears problems, except for mild ear ringing, but that is due to teeth grinding during my sleep.
I can listen to real human voices such as audiobooks or radio programs for the whole day (12 hours) without any pain.
I am curious if anyone has experienced anything like this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you
Tony

Hi Debbie,
 
Thank you so very much!  I'll give these steps a whirl.  I can't tell you how many things I've tried, but in the Playback menu it says program unavailable, & in the Audio menu, it says audion unvailable as well.  I've tried clicking on, Titles, Chapters, & only Lord knows what else, & can't get anything to play.  Thanks again, it's greatly appreciated.
Take care.

You get VLC to play the DVD from the open with menu option in my computer/this PC once the DVD drive is selected. Now here is what I wrote to the list regarding getting DVD’s to play.

What you do is go to the menu bar and find playback. Activate that, then arrow down until you find the

title sub menu open that and click on the title that you want to play. Also, don’t forget to google “VLC Media Player for windows keyboard shortcuts”

Re: Drop Box file sharing

Gudrun Brunot
 

Hi: I agree with Bill, there are two different things you can do when it comes to sharing files with someone. If the file is in your dropbox, and all you want to do is send that file to someone without attaching it to your email (which doesn't work if the file is large), you put the file in question in your Public folder under your Dropbox folder, highlight the file, hit the apps key and arrow down to "copy public," then scoot over to your email program and paste the link to the file right in the message to the receiving person.

The other way is what is causing trouble, the one where you and one or two or more people want to share a box. Here, you have to navigate through an interface that can be tricky. Brian Hartgen has put up a nice tutorial on how to create a folder to be shared, join a folder, leave a folder, etc. I don't have the link to it, but I copied the text from it and saved, and I'm pasting it in below. Like so many other good things he's got on his homepage
http://www.hartgen.org/
This one has helped me, and I hope it helps you too.

Dropbox Folder Management Using JAWS for Windows

Submitted by brianhartgen on Tue, 07/30/2013 - 12:48



Dropbox is an excellent tool for storing files. It can be used so you can share your personal files among different computers or mobile devices you own, together with sharing files with others, such as people with whom you wish to collaborate on a document.

However, the interface does present some accessibility challenges for screen-reader users. This article seeks to address them in conjunction with the screen-reader JAWS for Windows. You may be able to adopt similar strategies with alternative screen-readers.

Dropbox Notifications



While it is true that you can press the keystroke Insert+F11 in order to view the Dropbox notifications in the Windows System Tray, (such as whether files are uploading/downloading or if "all files are up-to-date", the J-Tools set of JAWS scripts from Astec at

www.astec-at.co.uk

make interacting with Dropbox easier. You can press a keystroke to instantly hear Dropbox file status information, another to drop right into your Dropbox folder and a third to view the Context Menu for it including working with your Preferences. The Preferences multi-page Dialog Box is also made more accessible.



Folder Management


By far the task most people have difficulty dealing with is either leaving a shared Dropbox folder or, (as an owner), removing someone from the folder.

This article will work through both scenarios. The process of creating an invitation to a user via Email to join a folder is accessible so I will not cover the steps unless anyone specifically requests them.



Leaving a Shared Folder


If you are not the owner of the folder, (in other words if you did not originally create it), you may care to leave a folder you previously had access to.

Here are the steps involved. They are all accessible.


1. Browse to the Dropbox website at
www.dropbox.com
and ensure you are signed in.

2. Using the list of Links feature, (Insert+F7), locate the name of the folder with which you no longer wish to be associated. Each folder name is hyperlinked. Press Enter on the desired folder name.

3. Each time you work through a step in this process, a new page is not rendered on the Dropbox website, so JAWS has difficulty in revealing the newly updated content to you. To rectify this, press Insert+Escape to refresh the JAWS Virtual Buffer.

4. Using the JAWS Find facility, (~Control+F), type the word, "Share", and press Enter. Hopefully, the cursor should be on the line entitled, "Shared Folder Options". If it is not, press F3 until JAWS announces these words.

5. When the cursor is on the appropriate line of text, press Enter. Do not be concerned that it is not a Link or a Button. In fact it is a Button but JAWS cannot detect this as a standard control.

6. Press Insert+Escape again to refresh the Virtual Buffer.

7. Press the letter B to reach the, "Leave Shared Folder" Button and press Enter on it.

8. Press Insert+Escape again to refresh the Virtual Buffer.

9. You may be prompted as to whether you wish to leave the folder. Locate the appropriate Button if so and press Enter.




Removing a Subscriber to a Dropbox Folder


This process is more troublesome but using JAWS it can be achieved.




1. Browse to the Dropbox website at
www.dropbox.com
and ensure you are signed in.

2. Using the list of Links feature, (Insert+F7), locate the name of the folder containing the member you wish to remove. Each folder name is hyperlinked. Press Enter on the desired folder name.

3. Each time you work through a step in this process, a new page is not rendered on the Dropbox website, so JAWS has difficulty in revealing the newly updated content to you. To rectify this, press Insert+Escape to refresh the JAWS Virtual Buffer.

4. Using the JAWS Find facility, (~Control+F), type the word, "Share", and press Enter.

5. Hopefully, the cursor should be on the line entitled, "Shared Folder Options". If it is not, press F3 until JAWS announces these words.

6. When the cursor is on the appropriate line of text, press Enter. Do not be concerned that it is not a Link or a Button. In fact it is a Button but JAWS cannot detect this as a standard control.

7. Press Insert+Escape again to refresh the Virtual Buffer.

8. Using the JAWS Find Facility, (Insert+F), type the first part of the person's name you wish to remove and press Enter. Hopefully the cursor should now be on the line of the person's name.

9. Now here is the tricky part. Using Insert+NumPad Minus, route the JAWS Cursor to the PC Cursor and begin exploring the text on screen with the Arrowkeys. This is not as easy as it sounds because, very often, the text within the Internet Explorer page is obscured and JAWS cannot detect it. In addition, the JAWS Cursor sometimes is not correctly routed to the Virtual Cursor, but in most cases, it is. If JAWS cannot latch onto the name of the user you wish to remove, try maximising the Internet Explorer window by pressing ALT+Space then X. In any event, you may need to use Up or Down Arrow in order to locate the name with the JAWS Cursor.

10. When the name is located, you should hear on that line of text the name of the user followed by the word, "Joined". There may also be additional
text on this line comprising Dropbox folder names, but provided you hear the name it should be fine.

11. At the end of the line containing the name is a graphic. This graphic cannot be detected by JAWS even if its Graphics setting is set to read "All". Press the End key on the keyboard and then press the Left Mouse Button, (NumPad Slash).

12. Press NumPad Plus to return to the Virtual Cursor.

13. Underneath the name of the user in the Virtual Cursor, you will now see a list of three items, each of which is hyperlinked. One item will be "Kick Out User". Press Enter on this Link.

14. Press Insert+Escape again to refresh the Virtual Buffer.

15. This page contains two new controls. One is a Check Box, where you can specify whether the user you are about to remove should keep a copy of the files. You probably do not wish them to. The second is a Button, "Kick Out", which is self-explanatory. Press Enter on this Button. The process should nowbe
complete.

Re: jaws professional?

Kelly Pierce
 

The big difference is the end user’s bank account. JAWS Professional
is intended for an employment setting. If someone uses a home license
at work, the end user runs the risk of FS invalidating the license
because the person lied to FS. The blind person would then not have a
version of JAWS to use at work.

Re: Drop Box file sharing

Marianne Denning
 

Gwen's directions did work. I followed them and shared a file I had
created with someone. My problems is that JAWS will not tell me what
to put in each place. I need to write the email, a message and
invite. JAWS is totally silent at this point so I had to guess what
to put where. I have done it 2 ways in the past. I have used the
Drop Box that is on my desk top and I have gone to the website. It
seems like they change the website on a regular basis so sharing from
Drop Box without going to the website is better. I just wish JAWS
would tell me what information I need to provide as I tab through the
areas. Insert+tab does not give me any information either. JAWS is
just silent. I guessed and got the information in the right places.
Thanks for your help.

Every time I want to share a folder with someone in Drop Box it has changed and seems less accessible.  Has anyone tried to share a folder recently?  If so, could you give me some tips please.

Hi, Gwen. The reason I believe that Marianne is having trouble following your instructions is that both of you are talking about two different things. You are trying to show her how to get and copy a public link for a file in her public DropBox folder into an email to send to another user.
 
On the otherhand, what Marianne wants to do, I believe, is to share one of her dropbox folders with a DropBox user with a different account. This may be what is causing the problem in communication.

nothing. unless you work at a company that uses a network to connect all of its machines. other than that the home version is just fine.

Depends. What Dave just said is true for 17 and beyond, as I understand. before that, the difference lay in both remote access, and the types of OS's on which it ran. Pro ran on any system, whereas Home was intended for home systems only.

It costs more, and is aimed at users who are using JAWS at their place of employment. The higher price is often footed by the employer. No functional difference.

I'm not absolutely certain, but I think jaws pro allows for remote
access. Of course I think there is an extra fee, but the option is
there.

Re: using scanner with JAWS

Hello everyone, I have found that the, “paper port” software was at one time very useful with Jaws. Although I must admit it has been some time since I have used it.

I think it’s a part of Office, but has to be separately installed.  Most, if not all, scanners come with OEM software, the accessibility of which can vary widely.

Thanks,

I always wondered how people scanned PDF documents in the work place. Is MS document imaging what people always use when they send you a PDF to read? Have a great one. I love to learn every day!

If you are actually wanting to use the scanner to create a PDF document, you can use Microsoft document imaging and once it is created, you can do print and select PDF creator is your printer take care
