In about jaws in my jaws 12 Help, it says I have 0 SMA. Actually I have 2.
Can I download jaws 13 and have this come out right, or must I call Freedom

Re: JAWS Scripting for a new application

Peter Holdstock <ptrholdstock@...>
 

Do you need to be sighted to be able to script efficiently? I'm assuming it depends on what level the scripting is required i.e. at work we use an application which requires every form field on the scrreen to be input including it's location, size, type etc and that's the more basic stuff. I'm assuming to be able to do that you would physically need to be able to see the screen?

Re: JAWS Kinesis keyboard layout

Chris Smart <csmart8@...>
 

I found this in Jaws Help:
"For those of you who are using any of the Kinesis keyboards, select kinesis as this implements the features of these keyboards."
So, then I searched Wikipedia for Kinesis Keyboards and found:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinesis_(keyboard)

Chris

At 01:37 PM 10/24/2011, you wrote:

Dear Friends,

In JAWS keyboard settings, we have three options - Desktop, Laptop & Kinesis. While the first two keyboard settings are self-explanatory, the Kinesis setting is not.

Kindly inform me as to when the Kinesis keyboard setting in JAWS would be used. Also, is there any list of keystrokes for this keyboard setting?

Thanking you all in advance for any & all assistance.

There's a good idea John. WLM is used by many but has it's very silly querks
and it would be great if we could get an email client working perfectly well
with JAWS. I reckon it would only take you a day or so to fix everything as
much of it is stupid stuff like graphics not been labelled so the user has
to do it themselves so it will then identify unread messages, collapsed
conversations etc and the calendar function isn't ideal. Could be a quick
bit of work and create many happy JAWS users. That said I know I and many
others have repeatedly reported these issues to FS including during the JAWS
13 beta so hopefully they'll get off their backsides and fix them.

Hello,
Does anyone know if there are scripts for the new WLM?
I'm running Windows Vista and Jaws 11 and I just installed WLM. It seems as
if it is utilizing ribbons instead of a menu bar, so I'm stuck with a
not-so-good way of changing my settings. Also the spell check is horrible
because it just tells the word that it wants to change to, not the
misspelled word.
I don't think this problem was on the old Windows Live Mail but I don't know
how to get an earlier version of WLM.
Thanks,

At the risk of starting a conflagration of controversy, I would like to
support the notion that John should get some remuneration for his hard work
-- even if he charged for scripts.
I know I would pay significantly for a set of scripts that made Google Docs
accessable, though I think that is not feasible.
The biggest single area of inaccessibility I encounter on my job is with
respect to on-line collaboration. I have clients who regularly send
invitations to go-to-meeting sessions where a document will be on the
screen, albeit from the client's computer. We will be on the phone
together, and sometimes the client will make edits he wants me to review,
and sometimes he will say simply, "Here, I'll give you control. Why don't
you revise this section on indemnification?"
I accomplish this only with the assistance of my sighted secretary. Without
her presence, I would be sunk.
Serotek has something called Accessable Event, but that really doesn't cut
it.
Again, this may be an application of limited applicability, but I run into
it all the time, and document collaboration is becoming more and more
popular. I hear ads for Go-To-Meeting almost every time I tune into XM
Radio, and note the popularity of Google Docs, not just because it is cheap,
but also because it offers collaboration.
This may simply be impossible and not everyone needs it, but if you need it,
you need it bad.

Re: Weird keyboard behavior during remote access

Debby Hill
 

Hi Kim,

I guess I never knew that you can't run two different versions and I just did it. Before JAWS 12 and once I made the changes that FS told me to make in each version I was running remotely, it worked. But now if I am running JAWS 12 on the local machine and something else on the remote machine I can get the problem back. That as you know is no fun!!

I will be interested to see if installing of JAWS 13 fixes it.

I thought you had to use the same versions of jaws on both the local

I just downloaded jaws 13 so it will be interesting to see if the

I don't see this sticky key problem in any application except

the
point that I can't even properly reboot the system but have to

Re: Weird keyboard behavior during remote access

Hello Kim,

You can try just disabling the scripts for the remote sessions.

JAWS/Options/Manage Applications

Then uncheck the script(s) that relate to the remote sessions.

Then press Okay to save the changes.

This is very safe, and of course reversible later.

Subject: Re: Weird keyboard behavior during remote access

Hi Debby,

I have version 12 on both the local computer and on the server.

I don't see this sticky key problem in any application except
during
remote access sessions. But as I said, when it happens it screws
up an
entire session, rendering the keyboard virtually inoperable to
the
point that I can't even properly reboot the system but have to
turn it
off and back on again.

You're right. After all these years, it would be easy for FS to
build in an
un-stick subroutine in their scripts or underlying code.

Thanks Dave. Hmm, interesting that they seem to know what causes
it
yet it hasn't been fixed in all these releases.

I'll try the key tap solution next time it happens.

Thanks again

Your case is not unusual.

Don't reboot. Just alternately rapidly tap each of the modifier

several times in

windows keys.
If
you don't have one of these as a pair, just tap the individual
key
rapidly.

This sounds crazy but it does unstick the key.

It's not a mechanical problem. It's related to the key code
decoding in
the
JAWS processing. At least that's what FS support has said for
several
years.

Hi All,

Not sure how many of you have used Jaws for remote access, but I
would
appreciate any help.

When I'm signed on to my work computer via a vpn using remote
desktop,
occasionally the alt key seems to stick. That is whenever I
press any
key I first hear "alt" followed by the name of the key be that
up
arrow or whatever. The only way to unstick the alt key is to
reboot
the local computer.

Is there another method for resetting the keyboard and
unsticking the alt
key?

Thanks,
Kim

Re: JAWS Scripting for a new application

Chris Smart <csmart8@...>
 

Hi Dave.
Ok, your point is well-taken. I guess I'll amend my comment to say that if you were going to learn a first programming language, Jaws scripting would be an easy one, compared to say C, especially with the Script manager and other things helping you generate the necessary code.

Chris

Re: Weird keyboard behavior during remote access

Debby Hill
 

Hi Kimber,

I am sorry I left you in the lurch. I went off to have some lunch.

Tech support at FS told me that they had fixed this problem in JAWS 12., So I have a couple of thoughts. Did you use the merge utility when you upgraded to JAWS 12, say from version 11. If yes, then something to try might be to uninstall version 12 and do a clean install of it and don't merge.

If you didn't use the merge utility, then I hate to say it but it is probably time to call FS or send an e-mail to support@.... I reported the problem sometime ago, but when I use remote desktop, I am sometimes using Jaws 12 on my local machine and JAWS 7 on the remote machine. This has to do with the application I have to use on the remote machine. (that's another shaggy dog story.)

I do know what you are talking about when you have the problem. It is painful!! I usually try to see if I can unload JAWS on the remote machine and reload it. It it a struggle, but I often end up having to use Narrator.

Hope something of this helps. Let me know how it turns out.

Debby

Re: SMA

Charles Coe
 

Hi,

You should be able to find out about the number of SMA you have by going to
the FS Activate page.

www.fsactivate.com
You will have to enter your JAWS serial number in order to find this out.

JAWS Kinesis keyboard layout

Sameer
 

Dear Friends,

In JAWS keyboard settings, we have three options - Desktop, Laptop & Kinesis. While the first two keyboard settings are self-explanatory, the Kinesis setting is not.

Kindly inform me as to when the Kinesis keyboard setting in JAWS would be used. Also, is there any list of keystrokes for this keyboard setting?

Thanking you all in advance for any & all assistance.

Regards
Mr. Sameer Latey
Mumbai, India

Re: JAWS Scripting for a new application

Brandon Keith Biggs <brandonboy13@...>
 

Oh, thank you! I had no idea about that command!
Jaws doesn't look more complicated than scripting for any other application.
You just need to have a deep understanding of Jaws and a good understanding of the application you want to script.
Then you have to grasp the fact that scripting is not programing, because you aren’t creating anything new. You are just telling Jaws what to do. Then you need to read and memorize all the formatting issues you have to cover in your lines of script, then you have to have your reference guide up every time you want to script because I've herd Jaws is harder than normal to write. (you have to learn what "include", "let" "string" "Function Retrieve", "Handle" "int" and all those single words or abbreviations stand for and what they do.
If you are willing to do that than scripting shouldn't be too difficult.
Thanks,

P.S. Does anyone know if Jaws has a record command function? So you can create strings of commands Jaws will execute with an alias? Or I think that's called macroing or Aliasing.
Because that would be the only time I'd ever feel worth learning another scripting language.
Thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs

Perhaps I'm overestimating the difficulty, but I certainly wouldn't want to
do scripting without knowing programming. If you want to know what it's
like, hit jaws key plus zero in a scripted application to read the scripts.

Re: JAWS Scripting for a new application

Peter Holdstock <ptrholdstock@...>
 

There's a good idea John. WLM is used by many but has it's very silly querks and it would be great if we could get an email client working perfectly well with JAWS. I reckon it would only take you a day or so to fix everything as much of it is stupid stuff like graphics not been labelled so the user has to do it themselves so it will then identify unread messages, collapsed conversations etc and the calendar function isn't ideal. Could be a quick bit of work and create many happy JAWS users. That said I know I and many others have repeatedly reported these issues to FS including during the JAWS 13 beta so hopefully they'll get off their backsides and fix them.

Hello,
Does anyone know if there are scripts for the new WLM?
I'm running Windows Vista and Jaws 11 and I just installed WLM. It seems as
if it is utilizing ribbons instead of a menu bar, so I'm stuck with a
not-so-good way of changing my settings. Also the spell check is horrible
because it just tells the word that it wants to change to, not the
misspelled word.
I don't think this problem was on the old Windows Live Mail but I don't know
how to get an earlier version of WLM.
Thanks,

I think all of us agree that John should get some recompense for his work
and I think many offered to pay something for the fnatastic Itunes scripts.
Perhaps having a paypal link on his site would be a good idea for voluntary
contributions although if he came up with realistic prices I'd be happy to
consider whether I need the product or not.

Subject: RE: JAWS Scripting for a new application

At the risk of starting a conflagration of controversy, I would like to
support the notion that John should get some remuneration for his hard
work -- even if he charged for scripts.
I know I would pay significantly for a set of scripts that made Google Docs
accessable, though I think that is not feasible.
The biggest single area of inaccessibility I encounter on my job is with
respect to on-line collaboration. I have clients who regularly send
invitations to go-to-meeting sessions where a document will be on the
screen, albeit from the client's computer. We will be on the phone
together, and sometimes the client will make edits he wants me to review,
and sometimes he will say simply, "Here, I'll give you control. Why don't
you revise this section on indemnification?"
I accomplish this only with the assistance of my sighted secretary. Without
her presence, I would be sunk.
Serotek has something called Accessable Event, but that really doesn't cut
it.
Again, this may be an application of limited applicability, but I run into
it all the time, and document collaboration is becoming more and more
popular. I hear ads for Go-To-Meeting almost every time I tune into XM
Radio, and note the popularity of Google Docs, not just because it is cheap,
but also because it offers collaboration.
This may simply be impossible and not everyone needs it, but if you need it,
you need it bad.

Ok, so with most of the Office applications scripted for, not to
mention iTunes, and the various parts of Windows, what else would
the masses of unemployed blind folks with limitted incomes like
access to?
With the basics that most people want to use daily covered, we're
probably going to move into more specialized applications that not
as many people require. If said application is something that some
of us who work or are trying to find work need access to, maybe we
should donate a little cash to John for his hard work and probably
hundreds of hours spent scripting. Just a thought. Of course, any
donations would be voluntary.

Re: JAWS Scripting for a new application

Dave Scrimenti <dscrimenti@...>
 

Perhaps I'm overestimating the difficulty, but I certainly wouldn't want to do scripting without knowing programming. If you want to know what it's like, hit jaws key plus zero in a scripted application to read the scripts.

Go into Start Menu, Jaws, Explore Jaws, and press ENTER on Explore the Manuals. That will open a folder. Press ENTER on.
No you don't need a programming background to get started.

Re: Weird keyboard behavior during remote access

Kimber Gardner
 

Hi Debby,

I have version 12 on both the local computer and on the server.

I don't see this sticky key problem in any application except during
remote access sessions. But as I said, when it happens it screws up an
entire session, rendering the keyboard virtually inoperable to the
point that I can't even properly reboot the system but have to turn it
off and back on again.

Kimber,

Knowing that there is a problem has never been an issue for FS.
Owning up to their contribution to it, is another matter. They have
traditionally blamed the Microsoft key handler as the real problem, but I
don't hear my sighted colleagues ever mentioning sticky keys.

Go figure, and just consider how FS's Openbook leave behind a sticky Control
key as a glaring indictment of the ownership.

You're right. After all these years, it would be easy for FS to build in an
un-stick subroutine in their scripts or underlying code.

Thanks Dave. Hmm, interesting that they seem to know what causes it
yet it hasn't been fixed in all these releases.

I'll try the key tap solution next time it happens.

Thanks again

Kimber,

Stuck modifier keys is a very common occurrence (at least for me with all
my
different versions of JAWS and hardware). It's been around since JAWS 3.5
and my old HP pavilion with Windows 2000.

That said, it happens most often for me after using Openbook.

Your case is not unusual.

Don't reboot. Just alternately rapidly tap each of the modifier keys one
at
a time. e.g. left alt, right alt, left alt right alt etc. several times in
succession. Then do the same with control, shift, and the windows keys.
If
you don't have one of these as a pair, just tap the individual key
rapidly.

This sounds crazy but it does unstick the key.

It's not a mechanical problem. It's related to the key code decoding in
the
JAWS processing. At least that's what FS support has said for several
years.

Hi All,

Not sure how many of you have used Jaws for remote access, but I would
appreciate any help.

When I'm signed on to my work computer via a vpn using remote desktop,
occasionally the alt key seems to stick. That is whenever I press any
key I first hear "alt" followed by the name of the key be that up
arrow or whatever. The only way to unstick the alt key is to reboot
the local computer.

Is there another method for resetting the keyboard and unsticking the alt
key?

Thanks,
Kim
