Re: Word 2013 formatting.

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

Thanks. I would get that one, only the one I have is working fine. My
husband was a printer, and he figured it out. I think that if I lost it,
I could do it myself now. The thing that perplexed him (more than it did
me) was that when I no longer had Office 2003, the dollar sign would move
with the text, but I knew to go to space 47 to enter it. We had some old
checks. He kept having me do them, just couldn't believe it. So that is
the only prompt that I had to give up. Still, at some point, I might
check into it, so thanks for telling me about the program.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,

There is a check writing template software from AFB called MoneyTalk. It
is about $40.
It just came to my mind, so, I'm dropping this note before I forget again

You're quite welcome. One final note: I would not turn off
the
line around the respective text boxes until after you've finished with
the repeated alignment test prints. If you do this, and the text box is
unfilled, nothing at all prints. You really want to have the location
frames during the trial and error period showing up in print.

Re: Windows 10 deleting a printer

Jean Menzies <jemenzies@...>
 

No. I don’t know how to do that. Can you give instructions on creating a new port? Perhaps that fits with a setting in the embosser where I can set a static IP address.
So far I have just used the embosser dynamic IP address. The Index manual is very vague on wireless networking.
 
But this is not really JAWS related, so if you have any further suggestions, please write privately. My email is after my name. Thanks.

Re: Attempting JAWS 17 repair...

HH. Smith Jr.
 

Hi Hamilton,

 

I follow the same steps except that I download a copy of the same version. I then go to the downloaded folder and do one or two things. I copy the exe file and then  paste into the run dialog box then type /type repair. Or you can do a shift F10 on the exe file and arrow down to copy as path then paste it into the run command then type /type repair.

Hi Folks:

 

For a while now, I have kept the information, from various JFW messages, about how to do a repair on JAWS.  Since I have been having some issues lately, I thought that I would do a repair on, specifically, JAWS V: 17.0.1214.

 

Withis in mind, I went to the “run” prompt, and entered:

 

                                                C:\J17.0.1214ENU-64bit.exe /type repair

 

This did not work, and gave me a message to the effect that the filename, “j17.0.1214ENU-64bit.exe” was not valid.

 

Could someone provide the correct syntax for this “run” line to work?

 

Thanks.

Re: Windows 10 deleting a printer

Jean Menzies <jemenzies@...>
 

Does that matter? It was my Index braille embosser. It is networked, but every time the power goes out, it loses the connection and I have to go through the set up process again. This then creates a new printer definition. Ultimately I would want this not to happen, but it does.
 
So, it shouldn’t matter which printer it is. The problem is that Jaws didn’t read the confirmation window to remove it.

Bob,

The first version of MS-Office with the Ribbon is Office 2007, which gives you an idea of how long ago the ribbon became the default. Even if you were able to secure a copy Office 2003 I would strongly suggest you don't. Official support for Office 2003 ended in 2014, and no one, including Freedom Scientific, is doing their ongoing development on top of non-supported versions of Office. I'd suggest Office 2010, which has extended support through 2020, or Office 2013, which has extended support through 2023.

I prefer a version of Office that's fully installed locally on the machine, and I think that Office 2013 was the last version that worked entirely locally. Office 365 has a lot of web-based features and I think Office 2016 does, too, though I can't speak to that in detail.

You may want to consider either LibreOffice <https://www.libreoffice.org/> or OpenOffice <http://openoffice.org> , as opposed to Microsoft Office, if cost is a factor and/or you just want to get a sense of what a full office suite is like. Freedom Scientific should be able to tell you whether there is any JAWS support for either LibreOffice or OpenOffice, but those are the two biggest competitors to Microsoft Office and both are open-source projects that have been around for quite a while and that have large user bases. Both of these suites can open files generated by MS-Office.
