Help needed with a focus bluetooth display and jaws

Kimber Gardner
 

Hi All,

I recently got a focus display and have been using it successfully
with the USB connection. However, despite several extended googling
sessions and multiple calls to FS for tech assistance, I am unable to
get the display functioning via the Bluetooth connection.

I have repeatedly paired and removed the display, checked and messed
around with com port settings and banged my head on the desk out of
sheer frustration.

As I said, I know the display is working via USB with the laptop. It
is also working via Bluetooth with my iPhone. But for my life, I
cannot get it working via Bluetooth with my windows 7 laptop. There is
a tech support ticket open at FS though I'm not very optimistic.

If anyone here would be willing to help me I will be very grateful.

Thanks much in advance.

Kimber

Thanks a bunch, but, for my own protection, the cyber cops are blocking the download! What about that site that specializes in JAWS-friendly programs (I should have bookmarked that thing)? Anybody know what I'm talking about?

, Dave. I thought I had an old copy of that, but must have deleted it. It
should be fairly easy to find with a search. I'm still trying to get rid of
the remnants of AVG, that system restore fixed JAWS, but really did a number
on me. I found some more physical remains last night, and deleted them, but
I don't touch the registry by hand. Norton once had a good cleaner, but the
last time I used it it went postal! I haven't trusted the category since.

Some time ago we were discussing what was supposed to be a dandy, safe
registry cleaner. I thought I kept the thread (you should see my mailbox),
but can't find it now. I think it began with the letter W.

Hello List,


I couldn't find an HP flatbed scanner so I settled for the Epson Perfection V370 /color Photo flatbed scanner. The Staples online list price was $149 and the daily sale price I got, was $119.
No shipping charge and next day delivery made it a good deal.

Some of you gave suggestions and others may be interested in some details.

It does the basics that I want

. A single button to do the simple scanning of 1 document and another button to do the scanning of several documents into 1 PDF file.

There is no old type menu line or ribbon menu. The dialogue box has the conventional buttons and combo box that you can tab to -- close, help, scan and custom.

All I needed to do was change the default output file to PDF.

When you change one of the combo box choices:

Full Auto, Home, Office and Professional

the dialogue box objects change.

Once the scan is complete, the file is put into "My Pictures" and JAWS announces that the "My Pictures" folder has come up. I just highlight the file name and use the JAWS OCR on the PDF document.

The buttons to copy (directly to the printer) and send to e-mail, do not seem to work for me, not with Windows 7 and 10. Maybe I will figure it out later.

These two tasks can be done with Windows. Highlight the scanned file and use the Windows Application Key to select either "Print" or "send to" e-mail.

The only online help is when in a dialogue box, select the "Help" button to get more explanation of each object in that dialogue box. For help on other topics, I had to go to the web for a user guide.

I am pleased with this new scanner to replace the 20 year old clunker I gave up. It is smaller, quieter and faster.

Re: Jaws getting tired

does the jaws key plus windows key plus f4 always report to FS, and does it happen transparently, because I never new this occurs.

is there a setting to control this feature, because I'm never asked when I use it.

Re: Jaws getting tired

Kimber Gardner
 

This happens from time to time when I'm working with remote desktop.
Jaws will become unresponsive and the only thing to do is reboot the
local computer. Or, and this seems to be happening only recently, the
keyboard will lock and rather than accomplishing tasks, jaws will
simply announce what each key press is supposed to do. Again, the only
way around this is to reboot.

I wish instead of adding bells and whistles FS would put more effort
into fixing the issues with remote desktop.

routine tasks (this affects only that particular program). I find locking
the screen and then coming right back usually refreshes it.

I press windows-insert-f4 to unload/reload JAWS. Usually that fixes it.

Be aware that if you read back a document with columns in Page Layout

are to read by paragraph of put the document into Draft view, and then
you'll get it all.

Hi All,

An acquaintance is trying to do the following running Windows 7, J16, &
Word
2010:

I would like to set a blank document page up to be written in columns.
I want to just be able to start typing at the top, have the information
confined to the first column, and when I hit the bottom of that column,
have the cursor automatically jump to the top of the second column and
continue as though I hadn't ever finished the page. Does that make
sense?

Does anyone have steps on how the above can be performed? All help
will be greatly appreciated. Thanks much.

Take care.
Mike

Hi Jim,

I think F6 will get you there, but you may need to press it more than once?

Subject: JAWS, MS Word and Word Recovery

Good morning,



I was typing a couple of documents, at the same time, using MS Word 2013.
Something happened a little while after those documents were done and I was getting ready to save and send them. Not knowing what ended up happening, I had to turn off my computer and turn it back on again.

I brought Word back up again, hoping to find the Word Recovery area, because I know the files are there. At least, I was told they were there.

I can't seem to access it though. Is there a process or key command that can get me there?

And yes.I know I should have saved way before then. There.I said it before anyone else had the chance. <big smile>



I'd appreciate any help.

Jim

Re: Accessible Driving Directions?

Brad Martin
 

Answered my own question. If you skip past all the
button
button
button
button
and
clickable
clickable
clickable
clickable
and all the unlabeled graphics, There is a text link to "get directions" which takes you through a cumbersome process. Or, if you search hard enough, there is a link, at least for now, to take you back to the old MapQuest. Crisis averted, for now.

Well, congratulations to Mapquest. The last holdout for breaking accessible of their driving directions has done it at last. I knew when the opening screen said, "A few things have changed," I was in trouble. Anybody got another option? I tried Google Maps, but could never find turn by turn directions there either. Clearly if you can't see, too bad.
