Are you looking for a freeware/shareware solution? The one I use is a paid
for program.
And BTW, cute tagline.

Subject: looking for a sound editing program

Hi gang.

I recently upgraded from jaws13 to jaws16, with an option to go to
jaws17 sometime in the future.

I was using the jaws scripts for the goldwave sound editor. However,
it appears that jaws has dropped support for this fine program.
I am familiar with audacity, but would like to find another sound
editing program that will work with jaws. Does anyone know of another
accessible alternative?

Thanks.
Bob

The most accessible sound recording/editing software I believe is Sound Recorder, from the American Printing house. It is a bit expensive, but worth it if you want to do much in the way of detailed editing.

Re: Qube

Gary King
 

Andre,
After you start the Qube, you won't find it by Alt-Tabbing around. Ordinarily, it doesn't show anything on the screen. What you need to do is to read thee Qube Readme that you can find in the Qube submenu in your Start Menu. Everything is done with combination keystrokes which you will need to learn by reading that Readme file. One of those combination keystrokes displays a tweet on the screen for JAWS to read, but normally you just listen to them.

I read through the documentation and executed the steps to open Twitter,

Have uninstalled and reinstalled the Qube several times and still no luck.

Re: Amazon issues

I have noticed for quite a long while now, I have been unable to choose the shipping option I wanted. I just assumed it was because I was using an older operating system. Along with an older browser. I had no idea this was a problem presenting itself to others. Who are more modern than I.

I just signed into my Amazon.com account using my email address and password to track an order that has been shipped, and did not encounter any image captcha. But when I originally placed this order on Tuesday, I noticed that there were no longer a series of radio buttons on the shipping options page to choose the desired shipping method, which, of course, would be free shipping, which is not usually checked by default. Even though there was no obvious means of selecting one of the four listed shipping options, I hit Enter on the first option anyway, free shipping, and this apparently worked, because free shipping is what I got. But it is also possible that this option was already selected by default. Amazon is constantly tinkering with its web site, much to the detriment of us blind consumers. But it is almost impossible to challenge them because Jeff Bezos, recently ranked as the fifth wealthiest person in the US, is an absolute control freak who always gets his way.

On reading your post, which made me anxious, I went to Amazon and

Hello, all:

For the first time, I am really miffed at Amazon. Has anyone visited
recently? They have a new sign-in feature, which, of COURSE, involves
captias with no audio equivalent! They give you a link for "having
trouble or sight-impaired," but the only thing there is options for
contacting them, which I did, with an "assertive-gram", which, if
you're experiencing this issue, you might want to follow up on with
one of your own so they will listen to us, hopefully. I stated the
situation is unacceptable, since many of us are Christmas shopping
now, and requested that they immediately remedy things. If anyone has
managed to get around the captia and still do check-out, please do
email the list and let us know how you did it! Thanks!

Chrome in Task Manager

An interesting thingis happening with Chrome.



The Task Manager shows two processes open for Chrome.



The problem is Chrome is not open nor has it been since yesterday. Alt-E to
end processes sequence didn't remove Chrome from the Task Manager. Two
Chrome process Chrome.exe are still in the list.



Has anybody seen this and possibly know what to do? Chrome runs slow when
opened and does have interruptions when listening to youtube on my machine.

Re: chrome, lister suggestions and what I found

For what it's worth, Firefox also uses the term "Save Link As" instead of "Save Target As".

Glad something I said was somewhat useful. :)

When I was testing Chrome earlier this week, I posted problems I encountered and several people posted suggestions. Here's what people said and what I've found.

For my download query, Ann wrote. The context menu on the downloads page has an item that says something about open link in incognito window. The item just below that is 'save link as', which looks like 'save target as' to me.

Me. David Moore found the same thing in his podcast. Chrome says "Save link as" instead of the Moore familiar "Save target as."

Brad wrote: For the Save Link As option, I route JAWS to PC (even though the JAWS cursor reads nothing), and then right-clicked, and I could save the item linked to.

Me. While on the FS website this morning, I couldn't get the "Save link as" option to appear in the right mouse menu. I tried Brad's idea. Still nothing happened. But after I switched from the JAWS to the PC cursor, I tried the right mouse menu again, and there it was. So, the next time I reach a download link, I'll route JAWS to PC, press the PC cursor key, then press right mouse and arrow down to "save link as."

For my combo box problem, Andre wrote: I just hit the spacebar to open the combo list. Hit enter on what I want or escape to exit. That's what I have seen on my machine.

Me. there's no single solution to the combo boxes I've encountered while using Chrome. Usually, I need to press enter and then alt-down arrow to get inside a combo box. The spacebar has never worked for me here. However, once I've placed focus on my choice, escape does sometimes work. I don't recall ever using escape before to get out of a combo box.

My thanks to all three of you.

Re: Dectalk Express, response from Emic, synth incompatible with JAWS?

Dennis Clark <dennis@...>
 

Hello Adrian,
Tech support is correct, that the chip described must be connected to a micro-computer such as the Arduino so that it is equipped to receive and process data from a USB connection, similar to your DEC-Talk unit, which I assume uses a 9 pin serial cable. I have now looked through the documentation they provide for their chip, and I don't see a command for changing the pitch of the chosen voice. I assumed that it had such a command, (and I still think it does), because in one of their demonstrations their chip is singing, which must require pitch changes. I am pasting below all the commands they have listed for the product. I will keep looking.

table with 2 columns and 14 rows
Emic 2 Command Set
Sx
Convert text-to-speech: x = message (1023 characters maximum)
Dx
Play demonstration message: x = 0 (Speaking), 1 (Singing), 2 (Spanish)
X
Stop playback (while message is playing)
Z
Pause/un-pause playback (while message is playing)
Nx
Select voice: x = 0 to 8
Vx
Set audio volume (dB): x = -48 to 18
Wx
Set speaking rate (words/minute): x = 75 to 600
Lx
Select language: x = 0 (US English), 1 (Castilian Spanish), 2 (Latin Spanish)
Px
Select parser: x = 0 (DECtalk), 1 (Epson)
R
Revert to default text-to-speech settings
C
Print current text-to-speech settings
I
Print version information
H
Print list of available commands
table end

Command Details
Sx: Convert text-to-speech
Convert the text string passed by the host into synthesized speech. The text string is limited to 1023
characters and should terminate on a clause or sentence boundary as indicated by a full stop '.' or
comma ',' punctuation mark. If the text is longer than the allowable limit, it will be truncated and may
result in unintelligible speech output.
Emic 2 expects characters that conform to the ISO-8859-1 Latin character set
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEC_8859-1).
See the Special Characters section, page
10,
for details
on entering accents, foreign characters, and symbols.
The audio will be output from both the SP+/SP- speaker connection and 1/8" audio jack. The LED will
remain RED while the text-to-speech message is being played.
Terminal Example:
:SHello! My name is Emic 2. Nice to meet you.
<audio output>
:
BS2 Example:
' Send command and the text string to convert to speech
SEROUT EMIC_TX, EmicBaud, ["S", "Hello! My name is Emic 2. Nice to meet you.", CR]
' Wait until the command is completed
SERIN EMIC_RX, EmicBaud, [WAIT(":")]
Dx: Play demonstration message
Play one of Emic 2's built-in demonstration messages:
0: English Introduction
1: Singing "Daisy Bell"
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daisy_Bell)
2: Spanish Introduction
Note that each demonstration message is fixed with specific voice, audio volume, speaking rate,
language, and parser settings and cannot be modified by the user. All user-configured settings will be
saved prior to demonstration playback and restored afterwards.
See the Sample Text Strings section, page
11,
for the actual text strings used for these demonstration
messages.
Terminal Example:
:D0
<audio output>
:
BS2 Example:
SEROUT EMIC_TX, EmicBaud, ["D0", CR]
SERIN EMIC_RX, EmicBaud, [WAIT(":")]
X: Stop playback (while message is playing)
Immediately stop the currently playing text-to-speech message. This command is only valid while a
message is playing. No carriage return (CR) or linefeed (LF) is required after the command byte is sent.
Terminal Example:
:D0
<audio output>
X
:
BS2 Example:
SEROUT EMIC_TX, EmicBaud, ["D0", CR] ' Begin playing demonstration message
PAUSE 1000 ' Let the message play for a bit
SEROUT EMIC_TX, EmicBaud, ["X"] ' Stop the playback
SERIN EMIC_RX, EmicBaud, [WAIT(":")] ' Wait until the command is completed
Z: Pause/unpause playback (while message is playing)
Immediately pause or unpause the currently playing text-to-speech message. Emic 2 will respond with a
"." indicating that the command has been processed successfully. While the playback is paused, the LED
will remain RED. This command is only valid while a message is playing. No carriage return (CR) or
linefeed (LF) is required after the command byte is sent.
Terminal Example:
:D0
<audio output>
Z.
<playback paused>

Parser Selection
Emic 2 provides a choice of text parsing engines: Epson or DECtalk.
Both will process incoming text strings and generate synthesized speech, but there are differences in
control and customization of the resulting output. Each parser's specific functionality is incompatible with
the other. Choosing which parser to use ultimately depends on what sort of speech output you desire for
a particular text string.
See the Sample Text String section, page
11,
for examples that use specific features of the Epson and
DECtalk parsers.
Epson Parser
The Epson parser is the default setting upon Emic 2 power-up. It allows on-the-fly, dynamic changes of
emphasis, pitch, voice selection, and speaking rate to take place within a text using embedded mark-up
control symbols:
\/ Decrease pitch
/\ Increase pitch
Increase speaking rate
<< Decrease speaking rate
__ Emphasize the next word
## Whisper the next word
:-)x Select voice (x = 0-8) (See the "Nx" command, page
6,
for corresponding voice names)
DECtalk Parser
The DECtalk parser is intended for advanced users and allows the finest control and customization of
speech output by providing direct access to the internal parameters of the DECtalk 5.0.E1 text-to-speech
synthesizer engine.
Dynamic customization using the DECtalk parser requires the correct usage of specialized commands and
their associated parameters. Incorrect usage of the DECtalk commands may result in improper or
unintelligible speech output. Please refer to the Epson/Fonix DECtalk 5.0.E1 User Manual available on the
Emic 2 product page
(www.grandideastudio.com/portfolio/emic-2-text-to-speech-module/)
for full
command details and phonetic symbols.
Only a subset of the DECtalk commands are supported by the Emic 2 Text-to-Speech Module:
[:comma] Set the length of a comma pause (in milliseconds)
[:dv] Customize voice parameters (save option not supported)
[:mode] Set how text is processed/parsed (no e-mail parsing supported)
[:name] Set the current speaking voice (numbers only: 0-8)
[:period] Set the length of a period pause (in milliseconds)
[:phoneme] Enable phonemic interpretation of subsequent text
[:pitch] Modify the pitch of uppercase letters
[:pronounce] Set the type of pronunciation for the subsequent word
[:punct] Set how punctuation marks are handled
[:rate] Set speaking rate
[:say] Specify when speaking begins
[:skip] Skip a selected part of text pre-processing
[:sync] Makes a command synchronous to allow it to be processed before synthesis
continues
A large archive of songs intended for use with the DECtalk 4.40 or earlier text-to-speech synthesizer
engine can be found at
www.theflameofhope.co/SONGS.html.
Some commands and/or phonemes used
in those text strings may need to be modified in order to work properly with the newer DECtalk 5.0.E1
version implemented by Emic 2.
Special Characters
Emic 2 expects characters that conform to the ISO-8859-1 Latin character set
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEC_8859-1).
Along with standard alphanumeric characters, the
character set also contains accents, symbols, and foreign characters (ranging from 0xA0 to 0xFF) that
may not have specific keyboard keys assigned to them.
Emic 2 provides an easy method to enter single-byte hexadecimal character codes from any host by using
an escape sequence "\xhh" (where hh is two hex digits). For example, to use the letter ñ (n-tilde, which
has a hexadecimal value of 0xF1), enter the text "\xF1" within your text string.
On the Windows operating system, if the desired character is unavailable on your keyboard, you can
insert the character directly by pressing a special key combination: Hold down the ALT key and enter the
four digit decimal equivalent of the character in the numeric keypad section of the keyboard. For
example, for the letter ñ (n-tilde), press ALT-0241.
On the Mac OS X operating system, most of the special character codes in its default MacRoman
character set are not compatible with the ISO-8859-1 character set. Thus, if you try to enter special
characters directly from a keyboard using OS X, Emic 2 may return an error or speak characters you were
not expecting. In this case, it is recommended to use the above-mentioned escape sequence.
Other operating systems may also support direct insertion of special characters. Please refer to the
specific operating system documentation for details.
Sample Text Strings
This section contains sample text strings that demonstrate varied variety of speech outputs from the Emic
2 Text-to-Speech Module. To use, first ensure that the correct parser is selected. Then, copy the desired
text string and pass it to Emic 2 with the "S" command.

Hi, Dennis and listers.

First, can you by any chance suggest how I might incorporate this command string into my system?

Second, I wrote to the manufacturer of Emic, the company which produces the synthesizer you alerted me to. Unfortunately, they believe the synth won't work with JAWS. I wonder if you, or anyone else on the list, can think how the problem might be overcome. Here's the text of the company rep's response:

I am not familiar with JAWS readers however from what I've on Youtube and Google I don't believe it does. Mainly because the Emic text-to-speech module requires serial communication from a device such as a micro controller either a Basic Stamp, Propeller or an Arduino. It has to be triggered in a very specific way which is why you need a microcontroller.

Hi Adrian,
Seems weird, but perhaps Jaws is sending a command string to the DEC talk
when Jaws loads. I'm posting a link below which will take you to a page
which discusses, demonstrates and has some documentation for a current text
to speech chip which is sort of the current DEC talk. There is a DEC talk
manual on the page which should give command strings for the chip which may
still be valid for your DEC talk. The link is:

I will keep pondering this one, and let you know if I think of anything.

I'm trying to figure out how to restore the pitch of my preferred voice,
Paul, in JAWS 17. It is much higher than in previous versions of JAWS. I
don't know why this should be, since I wouldn't have thought JAWS had
anything to do with pitch. I find no pitch control in the JAWS voice
menus, other than for uppercase letters. I'm unaware of any pitch control
in Dectalk Express itself.

I've experimented with the other voice options on my version of Dectalk
Express, but I can't stand any of them. also, I've set the speed setting
to exactly the same rate as I've had it before.

This is obscure for most JAWS users, but does anyone have any ideas?

Re: chrome, lister suggestions and what I found

David Moore
 

Hi Adrien,
I am so glad you are finding ways to get around situations in Chrome. I hope the tutorial and what all people have said has helped you get more comfortable with Chrome. Guess what? Today, I made Chrome my default browser for the first time. I actually like it better than even Firefox. The only thing I still need Firefox for is to run the add on Web Vism to solve capchas. I have not found an extension yet that compares to Web Vism in Firefox. The rest of the time, Chrome is downloading my sites almost twice as fast and never crashes. Have a great one all.

Subject: chrome, lister suggestions and what I found

When I was testing Chrome earlier this week, I posted problems I encountered and several people posted suggestions. Here's what people said and what I've found.

For my download query, Ann wrote. The context menu on the downloads page has an item that says something about open link in incognito window. The item just below that is 'save link as', which looks like 'save target as' to me.

Me. David Moore found the same thing in his podcast. Chrome says "Save link as" instead of the Moore familiar "Save target as."

Brad wrote: For the Save Link As option, I route JAWS to PC (even though the JAWS cursor reads nothing), and then right-clicked, and I could save the item linked to.

Me. While on the FS website this morning, I couldn't get the "Save link as" option to appear in the right mouse menu. I tried Brad's idea. Still nothing happened. But after I switched from the JAWS to the PC cursor, I tried the right mouse menu again, and there it was. So, the next time I reach a download link, I'll route JAWS to PC, press the PC cursor key, then press right mouse and arrow down to "save link as."

For my combo box problem, Andre wrote: I just hit the spacebar to open the combo list. Hit enter on what I want or escape to exit. That's what I have seen on my machine.

Me. there's no single solution to the combo boxes I've encountered while using Chrome. Usually, I need to press enter and then alt-down arrow to get inside a combo box. The spacebar has never worked for me here. However, once I've placed focus on my choice, escape does sometimes work. I don't recall ever using escape before to get out of a combo box.

My thanks to all three of you.

Hi Carless,
I tried it in my own message and it downloaded. After you enter on the link in the email, go down to almost to the bottom of the page and you will hear download. It will not say button, or it is not a link. It just says download. Enter on that two or three times, if it does not work the first time, and a dialog box will come up immediately to say yes to downloading it. I hope that helps. Have a great one.

Hello David and others,

I went to the link for Crome tutorial, and got a error when I tried to
download. Can I get some help with this? I really would appreciate it!

Thanks to all.

Hi Keight,
The Qube is the best client that I use and it is free. TW Blue is also free and is very good. You can have multiple accounts in both of those. The Qube is all keyboard driven, and TW blue has menus to navigate. So it depends on you and what kind of interface you like. Take care and let me know if I can help.

Hello everyone,

I have recently tried to download the twitter client Chicken Nugget
versions 2.4 and 3.0 with no success. I am able to download the
installer, but when I try to open it, it says that my computer is not
able to run it. I don't remember the exact phrasing it used though,
unfortunately. I even updated my visual basic driver sas suggested.
So, with that....does anyone know of any solutions or clients I can
use for multiple twitter accounts?
Thank you!
Cheers,
Caitlin

Re: JAWS not reading cell contents in Excel

Ann Byrne
 

Remember to turn off JAWS and turn it back on. Sometimes that makes all the difference.

I'm using 2007 but maybe this will help you. When I can't read a cell with the edit command I note the position of the cell I'm trying to edit. Then press the end key and then the home key on the num pad. Then use the goto command to return to the cell I was trying to edit. Press the F2 key and it usually will read it to me. -----Original Message----- From: Jfw [mailto:jfw-bounces@lists.the-jdh.com] On Behalf Of Sameer via Jfw Sent: Friday, November 13, 2015 11:39 AM To: JAWS Windows List Cc: Sameer Subject: JAWS not reading cell contents in Excel Dear List Friends, I am using JAWS 16 with MS Office 2010 & Windows 7 as the OS.

Re: Jaws cursor and firefox

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, Jim. Try this to make the JAWS Cursor read the contents on pages with Firefox.



How to make the JAWS Cursor Accessible in Firefox


When using Mozilla Firefox version 4 or newer, reviewing web pages using the JAWS Cursor is problematic. Mozilla is using a new graphical technology in Firefox version 4 and newer which bypasses the offscreen model, (OSM). Since JAWS For Windows depends on the OSM to allow the user to review the screen using the JAWS Cursor, things don't work the same as with older versions of Firefox, (such as version 3.6).



Solution:



1. Launch Mozilla Firefox.

2. Press Control-L to open a new link.

3. Type "about:config" and press Enter.

(All commands to type do not include the quotation marks)

4. If you are presented with a dialog which warns you about the dangers of making changes, Tab to the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button and press Enter.

5. At this point you should be out of Virtual Cursor mode and on a filter Edit Box. If not, turn off Virtual Cursor mode by pressing JAWS Key plus z.

6. In the filter Edit Box type

"composition.enabled"

7. Press Tab to get to the list of filtered entries and you should see one called

layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled with a value of true

8. Press Enter to toggle this value to False.

9. Press Control-W to close the configuration window.

10. Restart Firefox.



you should now be able to use the JAWS Cursor to review web pages while using Mozilla Firefox version 36.0.1 and newer.

Heya folks,

For a long time now and to be honest when I do a jaws cursor on any firefox
page all I get is graphic graphic etc etc and it never reads a thing
whenever I am in that mode, I have taken the suggestion from others on here
to disable hardware accelaration or something like that and it doesn't do
anything, I currently am running latest Jaws 17 and latest firefox but all
previous versions on both gave me the same feedback with Jaws cursor and
afirefox page, if anyone can help me I'd appreciate it as i want firefox to
work like an IE page when I Jaws cursor as we know theres some things on a
website only Jaws cursor can activate.

Cheers,

Jim

Re: Chicken nugget

Caitlin,
I have recently been pointed to a Twitter Client called TheQube
. Here is the link to download it.

http://theqube.oire.org/

I am in the midst of reading the documentation it downloads with so I
haven't used it yet. It is one that the list Moderator David More uses and
says it works very well. And it's free.

Hope this helps.

Andre
