I find the following on a Microsoft website explaining the ease of access center:

* Turn on Audio Description. This option sets Audio Description to run when you log on to Windows. Audio descriptions describe what's happening in videos.

The webpage is at:

Hi Dave,

That's really strange. I just got a reply from my local movie theater
confirming to me that they have audio discription available in their
theater. So, now I am going to start seeing a new realese now and
again.

I am not sure about the audio description in the Ease of Access Center,
but it sound like that might be just what it is. I have never noticed
it there before. Although it is becoming more prevalent these days,
audio description, like closed captioning, is not available on all
movies, but movies that do not have it are becoming more a thing of the
past. I am going to try it out on my computer though. I have lots of
movies, and surely some of them have audio description available on

Navigating Webpages with JAWS

Rahul Bajaj
 

Hi All,

I'm using JAWS 13 on my Windows 7 laptop.
So, while reading articles, posts, etc, the cursor often
automatically jumps to the top of the page. As a result, I often
have to re-read the whole thing from the very beginning.
Is there any way to prevent the cursor from losing focus and jumping
around the webpage?
This is really very frustrating. Any help would be really appreciated.

Best,
Rahul


Re: Laptop purchasing advice

Petro T. Giannakopoulos <petrogia@...>
 

Just wanted to know about this. If a user buys a USB Numeric Keypad would it work for the user? This would eliminate having to assign keys on the laptop with no insert key? I have seen seen some USB Numeric keypads with extra keys which a user could assign say the application key if needed. Also in JAWS setup wizzard he can change the layout from laptop to desktop if a USB Numeric Keypad is used.

Re: Audio Description

Richard Holloway
 

My daughter loves Audio Description and it is becoming much more available, though that fact is not well publicized.

Our whole family now goes to the movies quite often and my blind daughter feels very much included with this service. Particularly many Regal theaters show nearly every film with DVS available-- you just request a headset. (Always check first because a few of their films still don't offer the service.) Do remind them that you need the setup for the BLIND (Your white cane may not be a big enough clue.) Quite often they first give us a headset which makes the program LOUDER for the hearing impaired. The only difference is a simple setting change.

Much More TV is running with DVS available these days as well, especially on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, USA, Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, TNT and TBS. We found a bunch of Described Christmas shows to share with my daughter this season, including the Original Grinch Cartoon, plus The old "Frosty the Snowman" and "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer", all from the late 60's / early 70's, as well as some newer pieces like "Frosty Returns", and "Yes, Virginia". Note that CBS ran most of these (The Grinch was on TBS) and even their publicized list of DVS titles didn't show these Christmas shows. It is VERY likely they will run these again next year with DVS on CBS, so check, even if they don't post them as audio described!

There are upcoming shows with DVS including the Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard from "Star Trek") version of "A Christmas Carol" on TNT, and the 24-hour marathon of "A Christmas Story" on Christmas Eve / Christmas Day on TBS will also run described. Various popular series ranging from NCIS to The Simpsons also run described in many TV markets, and the list will be growing each year.

If you like DVD's, there are lots of described titles too. Over 300 have been released in the last 10 years and currently they seem to release around 70 or 80 new titles each year.

For more info on audio description, here is a great site:
http://www.acb.org/adp/

For more info on DVS in theaters and Movie Schedules, try Caption Fish. Unfortunately, Captionfish has a filter you need to use which may mot be entirely accessible. The site's key focus is open and closed captioning. I just checked and found 93 screens running with audio description available (every showtime) within 30 miles of my house, if that gives you some idea of how much more DVS there is available lately.

Here is the Captionfish address:
http://www.captionfish.com/

Regal also has a listing of available titles with DVS here:
http://www.regmovies.com/Theatres/Captioning-and-Descriptive-Video

Sorry for the off-JAWS-topic response, but hopefully some not aware of some DVS options will benefit.

If you want to discuss further I'm happy to help off-list. No guarantees I'll have an answer, but if I do, I'm glad to share.

Happy Holidays!

Richard

Re: Jaws takes three to six minutes to load

Dave...
 

Looks like a powerful enough CPU and memory to me.

Maybe you have too many things loading up before Windows starts.

Try this:
Windows+R
Type: msconfig
Enter
Ctrl Tab to the startup page
arrow down that list and uncheck anything that you don't think you need --
and that could be everything except JAWS.

See if that helps.

I am not sure about the audio description in the Ease of Access Center, but it sound like that might be just what it is. I have never noticed it there before. Although it is becoming more prevalent these days, audio description, like closed captioning, is not available on all movies, but movies that do not have it are becoming more a thing of the past. I am going to try it out on my computer though. I have lots of movies, and surely some of them have audio description available on them. Thanks for pointing this find out.

Mike

tried using it? I presume it's for videos?

Hi,
i'm using lenovo here but unfortunately i dont have insert key, yes, you're right, insert key. need to press fn+page down, for insert, and fn+page up for scroll lock and something like that! So it's very difficult for me, using lenovo g485. so be careful when choosing! just sharing my experience.

Allison,

I think you are getting some very good advice on this thread!

I would add the following ideas.
1. I lean toward Lenovo

2. 8 gigs of ram would be best but checking on Amazon quickly, I don't find too many laptops with that much ram.


6 gigs might be acceptable, but 4 gigs of ram is definitely not enough.

3.

Processor speed and type, I think is very important.
I think you should get an I5 rather than an I3.
4.

Mor important, I think the processor speed should be no less than 2.5 GHZ

It seems to me that each new version of Jaws, Kurzweil, Openbook and Microsoft office is more resource intensive.
That's why you need a good fast processor speed. While you ar making a new investment, you may as well get enough horse power to pull the heavy load!

Subject: Laptop purchasing advice

Hello everyone,
I have been using JAWS with windows XP for 5 years and have had very
few issues. But since support for windows xp is ending soon and I am
going back to school, I am looking to buy a Windows 7 laptop. But all
of the resources I have read on freedomscientific.com and other sites
are kind of vague about the system requirements needed for JAWS,
especially with regard to processor speed. I am not a tech expert, so
all of the jargon overwhelms me. Five years ago, I worked with DVR who
purchased my laptop through a vendor, but this time since I have some
money from a temp job, I thought it would be fun to pick out my own
laptop. Little did I know how overwhelming this would be. So I am
wondering if anyone who uses a windows 7 laptop and is happy with it
could give me specific recommendations on exactly which brands (Dell,
Lenovo HP etc) you have found to be the most blind-friendly in your
opinion, and exactly what specifications you have found to work best.
Thank you so much in advance for any input you can offer.
Allison Nastoff

Re: Finding JAB in Ease of access center Was: Ease Of AccessCenterEnable Java Bridge Topic was balloons

Adrian Spratt
 

Okay, I've made some more progress, thanks to the tips on this list.

As Mike suggested below, there is a download link. It's hard to find, but this link should take you to the actual download page:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jab-2-0-2-download-354311.html

Note that before the download link is displayed, you must check the box accepting Oracle's license agreement, which appears on that page. Once you've checked it, Oracle will graciously thank you and produce the link. Some arrowing down is required.

Once I clicked on the link, I followed Mike's earlier suggestion of selecting "open" instead of "save."

Unfortunately, I was then informed that I had no associated program on my system. I infer it should be JRE Java. So I gave up.

But if I install JRE in the future, I believe these steps, combined with the "Ease of Access" steps detailed by Soronel and others, will enable installation of Access Bridge.

Hello Adrian,

I read the information on the web page that you sent the link for. I do not
remember it being that complicated. As I remember, I pretty much just
clicked on "Open" when prompted after clicking on the download link on the
Java web site, and let the Access Bridge install itself. The only other
Java product that I had running on my computer at that time was the Java Run
Time Enviroment or JRE. And, of course Java Script, that I believe was
preinstalled in Internet Explorer. However, I did go to the Ease of Access
Center in Control Panel and enabled the Access Bridge. Also, I could not
tell after installing and enableing it that there was any difference in the
way that my computer, JAWS, or anything else operated.

I have the same experience as Mike B. Earlier in this thread, Mike Boyd
posted that you need to have the Access Bridge installed in order for this
checkbox to appear here.

Again, the method Oracle provides for installing JAB seems incredibly
convoluted.

Does anyone have experience installing Java Access Bridge on a 64-bit Win7
system?

Here's the link to the Oracle page explaining how to do the installation:

I have the same experience as Mike B. Earlier in this thread, Mike Boyd posted that you need to have the Access Bridge installed in order for this checkbox to appear here.

Again, the method Oracle provides for installing JAB seems incredibly convoluted.

Does anyone have experience installing Java Access Bridge on a 64-bit Win7 system?

Here's the link to the Oracle page explaining how to do the installation: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/accessbridge/2.0.2/setup.htm#installing-jab-64-bit

I don't actually use java -- at least as far as I know -- I just know the checkbox is there.

Bring up the ease of access center, tab down to "Use the computer without a display" and hit space. The Enable Java Access bridge" checkbox should be on this page in the same list as whatever versions of jaws you have installed.

No, it will not hurt anything. In fact, it will probably give more functionality in some of your apps. I keep this enabled on my PC as well.

Hi While in the Ease of Access Center I did find the combo box to change the notifications to 30 seconds instead of the default 7 seconds. While I was there I stumbled upon this unchecked checkbox for Enable Java access Bridge. I have seen some chat sites requiring this java access bridge. Will it hurt anything to enable this java access bridge? Vista Home 32 bit.

Jfw mailing list Jfw@lists.the-jdh.com http://lists.the-jdh.com/mailman/listinfo/jfw_lists.the-jdh.com I have the same experience as Mike B. Earlier in this thread, Mike Boyd posted that you need to have the Access Bridge installed in order for this checkbox to appear here.

Again, the method Oracle provides for installing JAB seems incredibly convoluted.

Does anyone have experience installing Java Access Bridge on a 64-bit Win7 system?

Here's the link to the Oracle page explaining how to do the installation: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/accessbridge/2.0.2/setup.htm#installing-jab-64-bit

How can I click on a balloon to accept what it wants me to do? For instance, when I start up my PC, I get a Jaws message saying that updates are available for Office 2013 and to click on the balloon to start it. The message goes away and I don't know how to find it again?

I am using Windows 8 and Jaws 14? A side question: is there a big different between Jaws 15 & 14 for its performance with Windows 8.1 & Office
2013
applications? I don't want to pay the extra $100+ if I don't have to; thanks.

Finding JAB in Ease of access center Was: Ease Of Access Center Enable Java Bridge Topic was balloons

Soronel Haetir
 

Bring up the ease of access center, tab down to "Use the computer
without a display" and hit space.
The Enable Java Access bridge" checkbox should be on this page in the
same list as whatever versions of jaws you have installed.

Hi All,

When in the Ease of Acdess Center I'm not finding the checkbox to Enable the

Java access Bridge. Would someone please give me a hard shove in the right

direction? I've opened several links & don't know if I'm just overlooking
it or what. Running Windows7 Pro 64 bit & Jaws 13 thru 15. All help will
be greatly appreciated. Thanks much.
Take care.

No, it will not hurt anything. In fact, it will probably give more
functionality in some of your apps. I keep this enabled on my PC as well.

Don't know, but I've just selected it to see if anything changes.

Hi
While in the Ease of Access Center I did find the combo box to change the
notifications to 30 seconds instead of the default 7 seconds. While I was
there I stumbled upon this unchecked checkbox for Enable Java access
Bridge.
I have seen some chat sites requiring this java access bridge. Will it
hurt
anything to enable this java access bridge? Vista Home 32 bit.

In windows 8 it's windows key u, then the rest is still the same.

So, adding that in combined with the below, it will look like this:
Press windows key u, tab over to the Use the Computer without a Display
link
and press Enter. Next, tab to the How long should Windows Notification
Dialogs Stay Open combo Box and choose from 5 seconds to 5 minutes.
Thirty
seconds or 1 minute should be adequate. I wouldn't want those balloons
hanging around too long; they might block access to other items on the
screen.

In Windows 7, press the Windows Key and type ease into the search box.
Then
press Enter on Ease of Access Center. When the Ease of Access Center
