I also used the filter a lot at my workplace.
We usually have to sort out the numeric data and filter out some particular values, like zero's etc.
Here what's I use/do:
  • Select the top most row of the data and presses the ctrl+shift+l for filter on/off. Jaws immediately reports the filter state.
  • move to the column where I have to apply the filter, and presses the alt+downarrow there.
  • Now, if I have to remove all of the rows which contains zero value, I move to the number filter submenu and hit enter on doesn't equal....
A edit box displayed which ask me to type the number, I type there 0 (zero) so only those records which doesn't equal to zero are displayed.
The good thing about this filter is that you can use the multiple conditions with it.  
I not tried the text filters with that greater details , But I think they're also works in the similar Fashion.

Dear Adriani, Thanks for your reply. 
Yes, on my machine, I checked (enable) the allow scripting box. 
And yes, its a server/client sap model. I think you're right, server computer is not enable the scripting at their end, and this is the problem.
Because, As I mentioned earlier, before logging in to the server, Jaws behaves very well. But after login, suddenly each and everything goes out of the way.
I will discuss with my administrator on that one. 
are you using/used or/ know anyone who using/used this server/client model or/ any other variant of SAP?
Thanks once again....

Adobe is a good thing to keep.
Once you get one of the offices installed,, hopefully that file type will no
longer be associated with Adobe, but if it is, you may have to go into "open
with..." and select the calc program with the office program you have
installed.
Maybe the office program you install will do this during the install.

Hi Addison,
You can get Open Office at:

And Libra Office at:

I used to use Open Office, and switched to Libra Office.
If one doesn't suite your taste, you can use the other.

You really need to try and provide more information and maybe double check the file extension.
As others pointed out, a "dbf" file is a database file and it has nothing whatsoever to do with Jaws OCR, Openbook or OCR in general.
Jaws OCR can read image files which can be PDF, JPG, TIF etc. In older versions of Jaws only PDF files can be recognized with OCR, I think the ability for Jaws to do OCR on other imageformats such as JPG, TIF, PNG etc. was introduced in Jaws 2019, maybe it was 2018, but certainly not before then.
It may help if you explained where the file came from, what is supposed to be in it and I guess even better would be if you could share it with the list as long as the information is not personal/confidential.
If you Google "How to open or read a DBF file", you find all sorts of articles, there apparently is a free "DBF Viewer" utility you can download, there are online conversion tools and it seems that you can also open a DBF file directlyin Microsoft Access or Microsoft Excel.

All the unit knows is the filename.  If you want the name to be different, rename the file before you copy it to the display.

First you have to unzip it and there should be a BRF file, and you should put that into the Braille display.
It should have an SD card to copy it into, and then find it via the file menu of the Braille display.

Hi,

I would open the file with wordpad and silence the synth so it isn't
blabbing on and on while you are trying to read.

That's what I used to do anyway. The one problem with this approach
is you won't be able to mark your place unless you actually insert
something into the file. I used to write three asterisks and the
words stopped reading here. That way when you open the book again
you will be able to easily find where you left off reading.

Also, with Firefox Send, you can upload files up to 2.5 GB and password protect, set to expire after X amount of days or downloads.

Chrome’s now my main browser, but having a Firefox account is handy. No different really than signing into your Google account in Chrome on different machines I suppose.

The advantage of having an account is that if you use two devices or if you ever get another computer that all you have to do is log in and all your history, extensions, bookmarks and so on are synced between devices or to a new computer.

Hi Hank,

I am currently using 2019, but I was using it with 18 with no problems.

And no, you don't need to create an account, I've never heard of that.

It's very similar to setting up IE or Chrome, in fact, you can use it just fine without even setting it up, only installing it.

Then you might want to set a home page, which is in preferences.

Good luck.

Hello Glen,

 

Thanks for your email reply. What version are you using of Jaws with firefox?I have heard that when you are first setting up firefox that you need to first create a account in firefox and that each time after that when you go on the internet with your setup firefox that you need to sign into your firefox account to be able to do anything you want to do on the internet using your setup firefox browser. Can you maybe please tell me if this is the case that you first need to create a acount in firefox and then need to sign into this firefox account each time you open firefox to be able to successfully do anything on the internet? Any help that maybe you can give me on this would be very much appreciated. Much thanks in advance for any help with this.

moderated Re: : Com Pilot instructions

 

You really need to try and provide more information and maybe double check the file extension.
As others pointed out, a "dbf" file is a database file and it has nothing whatsoever to do with Jaws OCR, Openbook or OCR in general.
Jaws OCR can read image files which can be PDF, JPG, TIF etc. In older versions of Jaws only PDF files can be recognized with OCR, I think the ability for Jaws to do OCR on other imageformats such as JPG, TIF, PNG etc. was introduced in Jaws 2019, maybe it was 2018, but certainly not before then.
It may help if you explained where the file came from, what is supposed to be in it and I guess even better would be if you could share it with the list as long as the information is not personal/confidential.
If you Google "How to open or read a DBF file", you find all sorts of articles, there apparently is a free "DBF Viewer" utility you can download, there are online conversion tools and it seems that you can also open a DBF file directlyin Microsoft Access or Microsoft Excel.

Such as Open Office or Libra Office.
Not sure I guess why you are wanting to scan it with OCR.

No - JAWS OCR will not be able to read a .DBF because it is a database
file - You would need to use a DBF viewer but that may not be accessible.

FYI - a DBF holds more than textual information - Data is stored within the
file in an array with multiple records and fields.

The advantage of having an account is that if you use two devices or if you ever get another computer that all you have to do is log in and all your history, extensions, bookmarks and so on are synced between devices or to a new computer.

Hi Hank,

I am currently using 2019, but I was using it with 18 with no problems.

And no, you don't need to create an account, I've never heard of that.

It's very similar to setting up IE or Chrome, in fact, you can use it just fine without even setting it up, only installing it.

Then you might want to set a home page, which is in preferences.

Good luck.

Hello,
I think you go into your bookshelf on the BARDmobile app, look for the Braille book you want (this’ll b under th Braille books item in the library tab), and open the book. I haven’t worked with this much, but I think you need to next press m on your display to get to the beginning of your first volume of the book. Don’t hesitate to go to the help file on BARDmobile for more assistance. If you’d like, download the brf file into your computer, open up your focus drive—kinda hard to do but plug in the Focus while, at the same time pressing left pan and power at the same time. After that, navigate to your books in the scratchpad, paste the copied brf in, and make sure to close that and remove Focus with eject/safely remove hardware. After that, note that the brf is there in the books section of scratchpad and read that way. In that way, the display keeps your position/not sure ot would with BARDmobile.

Hi,

I would open the file with wordpad and silence the synth so it isn't blabbing on and on while you are trying to read.

That's what I used to do anyway. The one problem with this approach is you won't be able to mark your place unless you actually insert something into the file. I used to write three asterisks and the words stopped reading here. That way when you open the book again you will be able to easily find where you left off reading.

Hello All:

I took a look at my SD card on my Focus 40 Blu 5th Generation and I could not find the "Book" folder where people have been saying to put "BRF" files..

Can someone tell me if that folder is created automatically or do I have to create the folder on the SD card on the Focus?

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Hello,
I think you go into your bookshelf on the BARDmobile app, look for the Braille book you want (this’ll b under th Braille books item in the library tab), and open the book. I haven’t worked with this much, but I think you need to next press m on your display to get to the beginning of your first volume of the book. Don’t hesitate to go to the help file on BARDmobile for more assistance. If you’d like, download the brf file into your computer, open up your focus drive—kinda hard to do but plug in the Focus while, at the same time pressing left pan and power at the same time. After that, navigate to your books in the scratchpad, paste the copied brf in, and make sure to close that and remove Focus with eject/safely remove hardware. After that, note that the brf is there in the books section of scratchpad and read that way. In that way, the display keeps your position/not sure ot would with BARDmobile.

Richard, I was not aware the El Braille had a Rotor, I thought that
was a function of devices like smart phones and tablets. I was under
the impression that this is something that the El Braille Does not

Open the BARD help file in the app and read section 7. You can navigate by headings using the VoiceOver rotor.

Hi,

I would open the file with wordpad and silence the synth so it isn't blabbing on and on while you are trying to read.

That's what I used to do anyway. The one problem with this approach is you won't be able to mark your place unless you actually insert something into the file. I used to write three asterisks and the words stopped reading here. That way when you open the book again you will be able to easily find where you left off reading.
