Re: reading objects

It might do something if the object is susceptible of OCR. It would be worth trying for each object in a document that isn't otherwise identifiable. I think Ann's suggestion for objects that don't contain standard text is creative. The next step would be Kevin's which is equally creative.

I'm testing a scanning software, so my question is this.

After scanning the document, it brings it up in word, I see all the text on
the screen, but it says the document has 27 objects. I know how to list the
objects but how do I read the content? I'm down arrowing and nothing is
said besides blank.

I'm using the 30 day abby fine reader btw.

JAWS and Amazon

Tusing <ptusing@...>
 

Hi,

Seldom if ever have I ever expressed any dissatisfaction with Freedom
Scientific.



I had been told to upgrade to JAWS 15 so finally I did it.



Well, with afriend watching my every move, I

Found it was very difficult to buy items on amazon.com/access,

Impossible to select a different gift recipientfrom a list of

People one lists for shipping, and impossible to change shipping options.



I was using the latest Firefox with JAWS 15.



I called Freedom Scientificand explained this. I was told sarcastically to
go buy a new version of JAWS which I frankly thought was totally out of
line-since F S had been tauting the virtues of JAWS 15 for sometime!



Thinking some one cared, I mentioned that JAWS does not work with the
Amazon music player-very useful for playing musicand

Downloading music.



Would you believe I was corrected in a short manner as the speaker from F
S quipped why would any one

Even want to use the music player.

Why would any one asksuch astupidquestion?

I guess we should be permitted to use some key Amazon features and not
others.

He criticized me for using JAWS 15-which was what F S had been
recommending all along.



Great sarcastic moral support.



So I ask this.





Are people shopping using JAWS 15 and latest Firefox on Amazon.com/access?



I have watched friends use the Amazon music player and it has a lot of
good features. But F S I guess would

Dole outaccessibilityand maybe permit us to use it 3 versions from now. The
sarcasm

Called support hit hardas I spent a lot of time

Trying to use the Amazon site and the player.

Also F S support had told me that JAWS 15 worked with both.



Thank you and have a good day.

Re: reading objects

Kevin Hourigan <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Control shift O then arrow through the list of objects and press enter to
select the one you want. If you need to know what the objects are, and are
unsuccessful with the methods the other listers have put forward, you can
insert alternative text identifying the object with the assistance of a
visually equipped person. When the object is selected, go to the context
menu, up arrow to format and tab to alternative text, and insert your
description. .

Re: Calling All Script Writers

Soronel Haetir
 

Also, if all you want to do is pass a key through you can simply
assign the PassKeyThrough script to the key in the .jkm for the
application. I'm not aware of a way to use the key manager to
accomplish that but it's not a hard thing to do.

I use the script editor, open the .jkm in question then add a line like:

Alt+DownArrow=PassKeyThrough

About half the time, when I need a script, what I really need is a

I am stumped with the simplest problem.

I have an application which will work fine if only I pass the down
arrow through to the application, not permitting JAWS to process
it. I know this works because I've done it manually.

So, I want a simple script, which I've assigned to Windows down
arrow.

The first script command is the ByPass command, and I think that
works.

I'm then thinking I should send the TypeKey command followed with
the parameter (DownArrow).

So the line reads:

TypeKey (DownArrow)

Well, I get a compile error on the TypeKey command.

I think I am overlooking something pretty simple.

as the parameter.

Drew, it really depends on what you like to do when using your computer.
From all accounts, most of what we as screen reader users do with Windows 7
and 8.1, we should be able to do with Windows 10. The new Windows 10 has a
new web browser called the Edge, which may not deliver the best web
experience in the beginning. You can learn more about that by listening to
the Windows 10 discussion on Fs Cast EP 109. Glen Gordon was a guest on
that show, and he talks in depth about Windows 10. Also, from what he said
on the show, when you first install Windows 10, you won't have JAWS speech.
You will have to use narrator at first, and then once the set up wizzard has
finished, you can run JAWS and it will work, as long as you have the latest
build of JAWS 16. Magic users must be running version 13. I am a little
concerned about how frequently Microsoft plans to update this new version of
Windows. That was also discussed on the FS cast episode I referenced
earlier. I wonder how that will affect JAWS performance or any screen
reader or magnifier performance for that matter. Hope this helps!

You can Try the JAWS OCR:

insert-spacebar
'o' for OCR
W for window, D for document, s for screen.

Greg,

I should have waited for you to follow up before posting my reply. Let me just add, in case people don't recognize it, that pressing shift-F10 is the same as pressing the applications key.

Try this.

Control-shift-o creates a JAWS list of the objects. Pressing enter on an

I'm testing a scanning software, so my question is this.

After scanning the document, it brings it up in word, I see all the text on
the screen, but it says the document has 27 objects. I know how to list the
objects but how do I read the content? I'm down arrowing and nothing is
said besides blank.

I'm using the 30 day abby fine reader btw.

Thank you.

Re: Calling All Script Writers

HelloEd:
Try this line:
TypeKey ("DownArrow")
This compiled for me.
You were missing the quotes around downarrow.

About half the time, when I need a script, what I really need is a

I am stumped with the simplest problem.

I have an application which will work fine if only I pass the down
arrow through to the application, not permitting JAWS to process
it. I know this works because I've done it manually.

So, I want a simple script, which I've assigned to Windows down
arrow.

The first script command is the ByPass command, and I think that
works.

I'm then thinking I should send the TypeKey command followed with
the parameter (DownArrow).

So the line reads:

TypeKey (DownArrow)

Well, I get a compile error on the TypeKey command.

I think I am overlooking something pretty simple.

as the parameter.

Re: reading objects

Adrian Spratt
 

Kimsan,

In that case, the chances are that the object you clicked on is a graphic or perhaps a photo.

I had to deal with an objects problem a while ago, but I don't remember the details. Two points, just in case they help:

First, there is a setting in JAWS setting (insert-v) for hiding or not hiding objects in Word documents. Mine is on, which probably means it's the default.

Second, I have a note to myself from long ago that a lister suggested pressing insert-F1 to find out what's going on with an object. I'm afraid I can't test this, as I normally try to do before posting, because I can't think of any Word document I have right now that contains any objects.

Sorry if this is useless information.

Good afternoon all,



I will be switching companies soon and much of their information is stored
in Google Docs. I have never used this before nor Gmail nor Google
Hangouts, so I am a complete newbie to this. Is it accessible to JAWS? I
am hesitant to dive in as I recall hearing less than stellar reviews on the
list in the past. Thoughts or suggestions?



Thanks!
