Re: a blind musician requesting help from other blind brothers and sisters who love to sing and play

For eight years, I have been copying my audio files to the CD drive, which is then followed by the
computer offering to burn the CD with Windows Media Player, and I've successfully done it many
times. The one time I didn't was my mistake, because of the surprising differences between Windows XP and the
newer versions of Windows. But I've done it with the burner software of Windows Media Player, because
my computer has the needed hardware built in. I'm glad it had that software!

Subject: a blind musician requesting help from other blind brothers and

I have been singing gospel and other popular standards in churches,
rest homes, and other small groups for over twenty years.
In the early days, preparing a customized mix for each small group was
easy. Put the cd in the player, put a tape in, and press record. Or I
would put two tapes in a radio, press record and play, and seemlessly
make my mix.
Now, (at least from my point of view), making a mix isn't easy. I
have discovered a program called Cdex, which, when I run it, converts
me files to mp 3's. But where the problem arises is how I can best get
those mp-3 files onto a cd with the fewest and easiest keyboard
commands. The ripping program is mouse-oriented, and can be done by a
sighted person. But what if you want to copy an mp-3 file onto a cd?
And how can that file then be converted into a formatt that can be
played on a standard cd player? For the sake of this I am coining a
phrase radio-ready. How do I convert an mp-3 audio file down-loaded
from the internet onto a cd, with as few steps as possible, seemlessly,
onto a cd and convert it to a radio-ready formatt using the key-board,
by myself? Similarly, how do you convert songs from cd to cd, also in
as few steps as possible? Are there recording machines that duplicate
from cd to cd, so I can maybe avoid the computer?
Please, please respond to this question. It is very urgent. If you are
a musician who struggle with these issues and can share your stories,
please post to the list. If you are a musician who has answer to share
with your questioning brothers and sisters, please post. I sent out a
message earlier this week about Real Player cloud that generated
absolutely no response, and this issue with my music ministry and
accompaniment tracks is even more important. Thank you ahead of time.

Kindest regards,

please tell me that as well. Also, if you are a person with answers,
could you provide your phone number and the time you would be available
so I could maybe talk to you about these things? Again, thank you for

Subject: Vocalizer Expressive Voices work, but Vocalizer Direct Voices

David Moore
 

Hi, the direct voices do not work in JAWS 15 or 16. If you have JAWS
15 or 16, you can only use the express voices.


Re: a blind musician requesting help from other blind brothers and sisters who love to sing and play

Aidan <aidan.smarttalk@...>
 

I don't know why you struggle so much? There are many burners out
there. You can get burnaware or express burn wich will put mp3 files
on cd in an audio format the standard cd format. And you can do it
with the keyboard. Rather sounds like you don't have enough computer
skills.

Vocalizer Expressive Voices work, but Vocalizer Direct Voices do not.

Paul D. J. Jenkins <pdjj6123@...>
 

Greetings!



I have downloaded all eleven available English speaking Vocalizer voices
from the Freedom Scientific website. For the following three reasons: (1),
I am not limited when it comes to HardDrive space, I like to have as many
options as possible to choose from, and, (3), I saw no documentation
regarding any limit to how many voices a user can have installed at one
time, I installed all of these voices; both the Vocalizer Expressive ones,
and the Vocalizer Direct ones. Or, at least, I tried to. All of the
"Expressive" voices work, but none of the direct ones do. When I went to
modify the direct installations, Karen, for instance, after activating the
"Disk Usage Button" I received this error:

"Disk space requirements. the highlighted volumes do not have enough disk
space available for the currently selected features. You can either remove
some files from the highlighted volumes, install fewer features, or select a
different destination drive. Okay button." Using Karen, again, as the
real-time example, I have chosen to install the entire feature to the local
HardDrive. The installation size is 20KB, and I have 20GB of free disk
space on my local HardDrive. If anybody else has encountered something
similar, will you please help me? I would appreciate any feedback at all.
*smiles*



Thanks, very much!

Jaws16 Latest Update, JAWS 16.0.2136, Download Links + What's New

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Howdy Y'all,

Here you go:


32 Bit:
http://files.freedomscientific.com/WebFiles/JAWS/J16.0.2136ENU-32bit.exe


64 Bit:
http://files.freedomscientific.com/WebFiles/JAWS/J16.0.2136ENU-64bit.exe

What's new in this build:
Enhancements in JAWS 16.0.2136 (April 2015)

The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 16 January
2015 release and the April 2015 update.
Note: During the week of April 6, we discovered that recent changes to the
MLB web site caused the MLB Scores Research IT lookup source to no longer
display
Baseball scores and schedule information. We are working to determine
exactly what changes were made to the site and will make a fix available as
soon
as possible.

Google Docs
list of 1 items
. Found and resolved issues related to using Google Docs where JAWS would
unexpectedly exit Application mode and place the user in different locations
when navigating across headings or interacting with iframes. With these
fixes, we expect much better results using JAWS with Google Docs.
list end

JAWS
list of 16 items
. After meetings with Amazon during the CSUN 2015 convention, it was learned
that the lookup source used by our Research It feature which allows JAWS and
MAGic customers to shop on Amazon will soon be unavailable. Additionally,
some customers have reported problems with the Amazon product search
displaying
incomplete results. Based on this feedback, we have changed the way Research
It accesses the Amazon Shopping site which will avoid any interruptions and
addresses current customer issues.
. A new setting, Allow Web Application Reserved Keystrokes, is available for
interactive web sites that offer hot keys to perform various tasks, but
conflict
with JAWS keystrokes. For example, on the Facebook site, you can press P to
post a status, L to like a story, C to comment on a story, or J and K to
scroll
between News Feed stories, however, these keys conflict with JAWS Navigation
Quick Keys. Turning this option on through Settings Center or Quick settings
will allow any JAWS keystrokes that are also defined as hot keys by a web
site to perform the site specific task instead of the JAWS command.
. Addressed issues with JAWS treating HTML ARIA Multiline edits as single
line edits. This caused problems for Braille Users because you remained in
structured
mode when navigating the lines of text.
. If you do a full install of JAWS 16.0.2136 or later, the JAWS remote
access client is now enabled by default during a Typical installation. This
allows
anyone with JAWS remote access authorization to simply install JAWS and
immediately begin using Remote Desktop and have speech and braille access.
If you
install through Check for Updates and JAWS Remote Access is currently not
installed, you will be prompted to install the remote access components when
you attempt to establish a remote access connection.
. When using Research It to lookup sports scores and schedules, it was
discovered that abbreviations for certain teams were being displayed in the
Results
Viewer instead of the full name of the team. For instance, if you press
INSERT+SPACEBAR, R, press TAB to move to the list of lookup sources, and
select
NHL Scores, instead of reading "TB at WSH," it will now read "Tampa Bay
Lightning at Washington Capitals."
. For users who run both JAWS and MAGic, numerous changes have been made to
ensure JAWS works seamlessly with the recently released MAGic 13.
. Addressed an issue for a customer in France where a WPF application at a
job site that reported information using data templates caused issues for
how
JAWS processed the information in UI Automation, which led to JAWS not
reporting the on-screen information as expected.
. Certain Government Agencies have reported issues where their Citrix or
Terminal Server connections using JAWS would unexpectedly drop because JAWS
was
checking its authorization too often to make certain it should still be
working. We greatly expanded the time between these checks so this should
not be
occurring in the future.
. In response to customer feedback, performing the layered command
INSERT+SPACEBAR, T now only activates the table layer when focus is inside a
table.
. When using a braille display in Line Mode to navigate a long list of files
in Windows Explorer, resolved a long standing issue where the display would
unexpectedly go blank when the window scrolled.
. Addressed an issue with the Stock Quotes Research It lookup source not
displaying any results if a particular stock was not specified. If you press
INSERT+SPACEBAR,
R and select Stock Quotes from the list of lookup sources without entering a
stock, only the Dow Jones and S&P500 are displayed.
. When attempting to perform a layered command from the keyboard of a
braille display and JAWS braille translation is set to Input and Output,
resolved
an issue where characters were being entered into the document.
. When using Research It to search for an entry on Wikipedia and the term
was not found, addressed an issue where a link to an empty page was being
displayed
in the Results Viewer.
. Addressed a reported issue with navigating using the JAWS cursor not
working as expected when Active Follows Braille is enabled.
. Addressed issues reported to us by the CNIB regarding working with the web
based CNIB store.
. When establishing a connection to another computer using the JAWS Tandem
feature, addressed an issue with keystrokes performed on the controller
system
not always getting passed through to the target system.
list end

Java
list of 1 items
. Addressed issues with JAWS not properly announcing tree views in Java
applications.
list end

Microsoft Excel
list of 2 items
. Addressed a reported issue where Excel 2013 would become unresponsive when
attempting to move a row using JAWS.
. When editing a cell and you press any of the keystrokes for toggling
attributes such as CTRL+B for bolding text, a long standing issue was
resolved where
JAWS was announcing "off" even though the attribute was on.
list end

Microsoft Internet Explorer
list of 6 items
. Resolved an ARIA issue regarding how JAWS should report and read
non-interactive lists while navigating HTML pages.
. Resolved an issue reported by customers in Spain where link descriptions
which are spoken messages, were also displayed in Braille by default, which
takes up extra real estate on the display. These descriptions are no longer
included by default when navigating with a braille display in structured
mode.
Users can still change it in the Settings Center if they choose.
. JAWS now correctly announces the text and background colors on web pages
when using the INSERT+5 command. This was also addressed in Firefox.
. JAWS now announces "required" for check boxes that are marked as required
using HTML5 or ARIA. This has been addressed for both Internet Explorer and
Firefox.
. Resolved an issue reported by Florida Division of blind services where the
JAWS feature to save Personalized Web Settings failed to save as expected
on a particular URL on their site.
. Resolved an issue where iframes, with either a width or height set to
zero, were not being read correctly by JAWS. This was observed on the
Microsoft
Windows 10 Preview web site.
list end

Microsoft Outlook
list of 4 items
. Resolved an issue with the Categories list box in Outlook 2010 where JAWS
was not indicating if a list item was checked.
. Addressed a customer reported issue where JAWS was not reading as expected
in the dialog box used to insert an Outlook item.
. If the Contacts view in Outlook 2013 was set to Card view, resolved an
issue where JAWS was not announcing the currently selected contact as you
navigated.
. In Outlook 2013, pressing the ALT key in conjunction with a key on the
number row twice quickly now moves focus to the specific field as expected.
For
instance, ALT+3 twice quickly moves you to the To field, ALT+5 twice quickly
moves you to the Subject field, and so on.
list end

Microsoft Word
list of 4 items
. Resolved a reported issue with JAWS not reading as expected in some Word
2013 documents using CTRL+DOWN ARROW to read by paragraphs.
. Improved JAWS reporting of colors when using the INSERT+F command to hear
font information and the INSERT+5 command to hear the foreground and
background
colors.
. Resolved an issue where Word was closing unexpectedly in some instances
when typing in a form field that was moved to using the F11 keystroke.
. If Active Follows Braille and Braille Follows Active are both enabled, a
customer reported that when using the braille display controls to move
through
a document, JAWS would speak as well as move the display. This is now
resolved.
list end

Mozilla Firefox
list of 3 items
. JAWS now properly reads controls contained inside edit fields when
navigating with TAB or SHIFT+TAB.
. Addressed reported issues with words containing umlauts or accented
characters not being read correctly by JAWS. This was observed primarily on
international
versions of Windows.
. JAWS now correctly identifies toggle buttons on web pages when Forms Mode
is active.
list end

Mozilla Thunderbird
list of 2 items
. Addressed reported issues with JAWS not reading as expected in address
fields.
. If a message is deleted while focus is in the preview area, addressed a
reported issue where the contents of the Thunderbird title bar were being
spoken
prior to the subject and contents of the next message.
list end

Skype
list of 1 items
. The Skype hot keys to answer or end a call, ALT+PAGE UP and ALT+PAGE DOWN,
now work correctly from the message list in Outlook 2013.
list end

Take care.
Mike

Braille edgeand jaws 16

Drew Hunthausen
 

Dear list,

I'm using the latest version of Jaws 16 with a Braille Edge Braille display
and am wondering if someone can help me with an issue I having. I can't seem
to get the Braille edge to reliably work when I turn my computer on with
jaws, it seems like I have to unplug the display from USB and plug it in
again and then restart Jaws every time. Is there something I should be doing
when I turn my computer off to make it so the display starts up
automatically? thanks

Re: the desktop, it's already the default in 7, 8 is the one that has to be tweaked.

Barbara, do you know if this is possible in Windows 7? I tried your steps but what I hear is somewhat different than what you outline. Thanks, Tom

If you'd rather boot to the Desktop in Windows 8, this is easily accomplished. Simply follow these steps:

Move focus to the Windows Taskbar with WINDOWS KEY-T Tap Escape to remove focus from the application buttons Press ALT-ENTER to open the Taskbar and Navigation Properties dialog Within the dialog are four property sheets.
Move focus to the "Navigation" property sheet. Navigate among property sheets with CTRL-TAB and CTRL-SHIFT-TAB. Since the "Navigation" property sheet is the second property sheet, just press CTRL-TAB once.
On this property sheet are a number of checkboxes. Navigate with TAB and SHIFT-TAB until you locate the checkbox labeled, "When I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to the Desktop instead of Start."
In Windows, checkboxes are toggled on and off with SPACEBAR. Toggle this checkbox on.
Activate the OK button to save the changes. In the future, Windows will use the Desktop as the default display.

Hi folks! I'm wondering if anyone has a suggestion for some good JAWS/Windows 8 tutorials. I have a friend who just purchased a new computer with Windows 8. I would like to help him, but I am not really familiar with the Windows 8 lay-out. I've heard that there may be a way to change how Windows looks, meaning the programs menu would look the same as it does in Windows 7. Is this true? I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks very much!

Re: Webroot virus protection with jaws

Charles Krugman
 

While it seems like it is a good program it seems to totally lack in accessibility. I tried to use it is recommended as part of my service plan with Geeksquad. However, I could not make any changes to settings or preferences without sighted help and it was hard to read details and results. I eventually stopped using it because of the poor accessibility features.. I experimented with it at times using JAWS versions 14 and 15.

Re: Extra Sounds in JAWS 16

Douglas C. DeCamp
 

Ann,
I ran into this some time ago when I upgraded the sound in my computer to a
new X-FI Titanium Soundblaster card. I believe I had to get some family
help to adjust the graphical controls to add several milliseconds of
delay into sound processing. How to set these delays is probably driver
specific and I can't give you much advice there.
Hope this helps at least a little bit!

I just received a new computer at work and upgraded to the JAWS 16.0
software. Witht the new computer and new software, I hear an annoying
clicking/popping sound every time I type a letter or use the arrow or tab
keys/etc.I called Tech support at Freedom Scientific and they indicated that
the new sound cards/drivers have actually been a cause and they recommended
dumbing down all of your sound settings. I guess I was hoping a good old
fashioned Mono Tone option was available, but that is not an option any
more. Have you ever experienced this? Thanks for any insight
