Shift plus F10 or the Jaws commands to mimic the mouse buttons.

Good afternoon listers; got a wireless keyboard with no context menu key that \i can find.  Is there another way to get to context menu? Thanks in advance.

Definitely reboot the system so that JAWS is restarted. If that doesn’t work, test whether NVDA can detect the display, just in case it’s a connection issue.

I did not see a remove option,

Just a combo box saying I can change the default display;

And even if I pick pm display,

And then hit ok,

It still doesn’t see it;

 

Please advise as you like.

Hey guys:

 

Somehow,

Jaws says the active display is no display, but,

The default combo box says that pm display is default;

How do I reset the active display so it says pmdisplay and then sees it?

Right now, jaws thinks that there is no braille display;

Did you disconnect your display while Jaws was active?

 

Try rebooting your computer with the braille display connected and see if it sorts itself out.

 

Otherwise, this may be worth going through Freedom Scientific support.

Jason,

 

Well, if you're going to use Microsoft Word, then you need to know how to create real headings with it and not attempt visual headings with formatting. Word seems to be widely used to I thought Juan might already have access to it.

 

Where does one obtain Pandoc, how much does it cost, and does it have the ability to save documents created with it in ePub format? If it can't create ePub documents, how do you convert them from its format to ePub?

If you are writing original material and wish to generate EPUB documents, then Pandoc would be an effective and accessible tool. You can write the documents in Pandoc Markdown (or one of the other formats supported by Pandoc) and convert them to EPUB.

 

I wouldn’t recommend Microsoft Word as the format in which to write, unless you’re careful to use styles properly throughout the document. Many users of Microsoft Word, unfortunately, use direct formatting extensively, leading to poorly structured documents that are less accessible to screen reader users and not as good as they should be when converted to other formats. The obvious sign of this is the lack of heading styles – for example, a paragraph in “normal” style which is marked as centered, and with fonts that make it look as though it’s a heading.

I was under the impression that Juan was composing original material which is why I suggested using Microsoft Word to do so and then using Codex to convert it to ePub. I just did a quick search of ePub documents on my computer and when I opened the context menu on one of those files and arrowed to Codex to check what conversion options were possible, Word 2007 was one of the choices. That would create a docx file from an ePub one.

Juan,

 

I'd recommend you do your document editing and preparation with Microsoft Word and then use the excellent Codex program developed by James Scholes to convert it to ePub format. Codex can convert 18 different input formats including docx to 8 different output formats including ePub. You can read about it here:

HI All,

 

I have to edit and prepare some epub ebooks.  Is there an accessible editor for this? Calibre isn’t that accessible.

 

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

 

Best,

An EPUB document is essentially a zip file, so you can extract it, edit the contents using your preferred text editor, then compress the results into a zip archive. The actual text is just HTML or XHTML, so you should be able to use whatever text editor you would normally choose for editing HTML Web pages.

Are they already in ePub format?

 

If so, I’m not sure.

 

Alan had suggested using Codex which can convert Word to ePub, but it may also be able to convert ePub to Word, then do your edits and convert it back.

Not sure if that would work, but might be worth a try.

I use LaTeX for typesetting. It's freely available, open-source, works with any text editor (including Notepad++ as supported by recent JAWS releases), and has been used in publishing.

For an introduction: http://latex.silmaril.ie/formattinginformation/index.html

I'm sure it can generate business cards, but I use it nowadays for writing papers (and used it in writing my Ph.D. thesis).

I have taken Publisher files and resaved them to a txt file and that is
just about all you can do with Publisher and JAWS.

If you are trying to create/make a business card, Microsoft Word has a
template and or you can use the Envelope/Label to make a business card
and send it to a printer. You will also have to check to see what
stationary you need for the template to print properly with your
printer. This can be tricky!

Robin,

 

If you and your husband are sharing a physical computer with separate login accounts, your Dropbox account folders will be located in different places. Yours will be under your user name and his under his user name. Ultimately, any shared Dropbox folders shared by you or shared with you will be located under your Dropbox main folder with whatever name that shared folder has. Any files you load into that shared folder whether saved there with your computer or your mobile device will be available to anyone who has access to that shared folder. It is very powerful and what I found to be the easiest way into the iPhone's closed file system since most of the apps I use that require file access work with Dropbox.

Alan,

Interesting.  Is that also the case if say, my husband is using my computer and wants his own drop box account?  I have a lot to learn.  Maybe I need to go order Judy Dixon’s book on Dropbox. From National Braille Press.

Robin,

 

You won't really be accessing two different Dropbox accounts. What should happen is that whoever is in charge of administering the folder being shared should invite you to share it too. It should then appear on your computer as a subfolder of your main Dropbox folder as well as a folder under your Dropbox app.

 

Good luck.

Hi,

This question is for those who use multiple DropBox accounts.  I currently successfully use my personal Dropbox account on my Windows 10 computer with JAWS 2019 to move files between my laptop and iPhone.  I typically do this using Windows File Explorer, just as if drop box is any folder or drive on my laptop.  I’m now going to need to access another drop box account that someone has set up to share files for some committee work.   What should I expect that is different?  Can I access the files the same way I do now or will I have to use the Dropbox website?  Any other tips are appreciated, as I’m a bit nervous about being competent in the eyes of the other sighted committee members and of not messing up their files.

 

Thanks.

 

Robin
