Re: The Kindle to computer app and Jaws 11

Gary King
 

Amazon could have done a much better job when they modified Kindle for PC for accessibility. We don't have access to the actual text of the books, and navigation is limited. The only way it really helped us is that it allowed us to listen to books where the text-to-speech option has been disabled by the publishers on the Kindle.

The Convenient OCR feature in JFW can display text from a page of a Kindle book in the Kindle for PC program, but since books are usually printed in multiple columns, reading with the OCR feature would be somewhat challenging.

It is not just the Amazon Proprietary license which prevents saving Kindle books to other formats, it is also the copyright agreements which Amazon has with the copyright owners and publishers of the books.

Hi Linda,
Try this.
Go to the library view. Now you should be able to arrow through the titles
in your library with JAWS. When you get to the title you want, try hitting
the applications key, (between the alt and the control key on the right side
of the space bar.)
Arrow down to "go to beginning of book" and hit enter.
Now hitting control R will start the reader.
And, unfortunately, I don't think there is any way to convert kindle books
to any other format -- part of their proprietary licensing,etc.

Hi Linda,
Yeah, the Kindle and JAWS don't play all that well together. Amazon
has designed it to work as with its own voicing. Below is the link to
the list of keyboard commands to use with the accessible kindle for pc.
JAWS will, however, read all the menus; alt f, predictably, will take
you to the file menu, for instance.
When I open kindle I often go to the library, by hitting alt G to get
to the "go" menu and then arrowing down to library.
Now JAWS will read the titles in your library. Entering will select
that title, and Control R will begin reading.
Use the Go menu again to move to table of contents, last position
read, or to search for a page number.

On the whole though, JAWS and Kindle are pretty clunky together.
Here's the Amazon help page.

Hi

I am using Jaws 11 on a 32 bit Toshiba laptop and today downloaded an
app that should allow me to read Kindle books on my computer. However,
unfortunately Jaws refuses to say anything but "blank" when I try to
read the ebooks. Has anyone else come across this and found a way
around it please?

Hope to hear from you soon.

Re: The Kindle to computer app and Jaws 11

Adrian Spratt
 

Hi, Dave. Then are you saying that "Robinson Crusoe" or another book no
longer protected by copyright is accessible on the Kindle? I'm not clear why
copyright would bar accessibility if a copyrighted book can otherwise be
played on the Kindle.

Lisa, Linda and everyone:

It is not just the Amazon Proprietary license which prevents saving Kindle books to other formats, it is also the copyright agreements which Amazon has with the copyright owners and publishers of the books.

Hi Linda,
Try this.
Go to the library view. Now you should be able to arrow through the titles
in your library with JAWS. When you get to the title you want, try hitting
the applications key, (between the alt and the control key on the right side
of the space bar.)
Arrow down to "go to beginning of book" and hit enter.
Now hitting control R will start the reader.
And, unfortunately, I don't think there is any way to convert kindle books
to any other format -- part of their proprietary licensing,etc.

Hi Linda,
Yeah, the Kindle and JAWS don't play all that well together. Amazon
has designed it to work as with its own voicing. Below is the link to
the list of keyboard commands to use with the accessible kindle for pc.
JAWS will, however, read all the menus; alt f, predictably, will take
you to the file menu, for instance.
When I open kindle I often go to the library, by hitting alt G to get
to the "go" menu and then arrowing down to library.
Now JAWS will read the titles in your library. Entering will select
that title, and Control R will begin reading.
Use the Go menu again to move to table of contents, last position
read, or to search for a page number.

On the whole though, JAWS and Kindle are pretty clunky together.
Here's the Amazon help page.

US government warns against Java

Adrian Spratt
 

I've just read a report that late this afternoon, the US government issued a
warning that computer users need to disable Java because of security holes
that are not being fixed.

I have no idea how disabling Java will affect users of JAWS, but I've
decided to take heed. From what I can tell, the place to disable Java is in
any browser you use. In my case, that's IE and Firefox. In both cases, I
went to tools, then add-ons.

The control panel doesn't give a "disable" option, at least not in XP.

I hope this isn't a hoax. Or rather, I hope it is. But I'm taking no
chances.

Re: JAWS and Firefox ESR 17

Adrian Spratt
 

Is the problem that JAWS is taking ages to recognize webpages on Firefox?
That's my experience with FF17. So long as the page isn't recognized by
JAWS, the navigation commands won't work. I do two things to hurry along the
process. I refresh with JAWS key+escape and switch to and from another
application with alt-tab.

That said, it's still taking too long, and I've reverted to IE.

Hi Lauren,

Not sure why the page isn't reading, but to switch between tabs, press CTRL
+ 1, 2, 3 etc. depending on how many tabbed pages you have open.
