A famous example is Laura Sloate. Not on this list, but she made a name for
herself in the financial industry. Google her name for more.

Ed,
Go-To Meeting displays a graphical representation of the other computer's screen. I doubt that even the OCR in JFW 13 is good enough to let you do any real work with it. Of course, scripting is not going to help either.

Almost nobody uses ProTools on a PC. It doesn't work very well. So it wouldn't be worth scripting in my opinion. If you want or need to use ProTools, get a Mac. You can still use your PC for everything else.

I'm struggling with the interface with Logitech Harmony Remote. It allows a
single remote to be programmed to issue a series of commands in sequence, to
simplify the control of separate audio/video components.

The initial launch, installation, and the ultimate web interface are all
very inaccessible, even with JAWS 13's OCR.

Off-list I can "loan" you the files to install, but unfortunately in order
to get it running, you need an actual Harmony remote connected via USB. A
long shot, I know, but what a great tool to have for the VI.

Do many VI people have those remotes? I don't and I'm not sure how many
others will either. How much do they cost? I'm assuming not cheap and since
the majortiy of blind people don't work I suspect uptake for this will be
low. Of course I appreciate how it will be useful to those who do have the

BUT IF I HADN'T BEEN CHECKING THE STUFF YOU HAD SUGGESTED, I WOULD NEVER HAD FOUND THE DEFAULT PDF READER BUTTON. IT SEEMS THAT IT HAD NEVER BEEN INSTALLED OR AT LEAST NOT PROPERLY.

Hi cecropia64,

I ran into a problem with a fellow list member who was having trouble with
Adobe running Jaws8. We installed Adobe X / 10& it worked very well with
Jaws8. The latest version is Adobe Reader X / 10. If you install it , you
will need to follow the steps below to make sure it works well with Jaws.

You need to disable protected view first to get it to work well with Jaws.

Do the following:

1. From either your desktop or start menu, press enter on Adobe. The
Adobe window is now open, press control + K, to open preferences. Another
way to
get to preferences is after pressing enter on the Adobe shortcut, press Alt
+ E, for the edit menu, arrow up to preferences,& press enter.

3. When preferences opens you will be in a tree view and should be on the
General page, if not arrow up or down until you have General highlighted.
It
is #4 of 29. Tab until you find a checkbox called enable protected mode at
startup, uncheck it, choose yes on the warning you will get to continue.
Then, tab to okay, press enter to save your changes / close preferences,&
Alt + F4 to close Adobe.

Hope this helps. Take care.

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.

Re: JAWS Scripting for a new application

Brandon Keith Biggs <brandonboy13@...>
 

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,

Brandon Keith Biggs

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.

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: adobe reader

Mike & Barbara <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi cecropia64,

I ran into a problem with a fellow list member who was having trouble with
Adobe running Jaws8. We installed Adobe X / 10 & it worked very well with
Jaws8. The latest version is Adobe Reader X / 10. If you install it , you
will need to follow the steps below to make sure it works well with Jaws.

You need to disable protected view first to get it to work well with Jaws.

Do the following:

1. From either your desktop or start menu, press enter on Adobe. The
Adobe window is now open, press control + K, to open preferences. Another
way to
get to preferences is after pressing enter on the Adobe shortcut, press Alt
+ E, for the edit menu, arrow up to preferences, & press enter.

3. When preferences opens you will be in a tree view and should be on the
General page, if not arrow up or down until you have General highlighted.
It
is #4 of 29. Tab until you find a checkbox called enable protected mode at
startup, uncheck it, choose yes on the warning you will get to continue.
Then, tab to okay, press enter to save your changes / close preferences, &
Alt + F4 to close Adobe.

Hope this helps. Take care.
Mike

Don't remember which version of Adobe Reader works best with JAWS 9. But I
bet that's the problem. If you have an older version of Adobe Reader you
might try that, or try reinstalling the version you have. And what version
is that, by the way?

Google Docs seems to be a hot topic as far as accessibility. I do have some
background information on that, but I'll have to make a call to someone that
is related to google's business. We might not have to script this
application.

Audacity is free and accessible. Sound Forge has already been well-scripted. jSonar and CakeTalking are two scripts packages for Sonar. So, we have access to audio editors I'd say. Oh, I forgot Reaper and Reaper Access in that list.
