Soundforge and sonar are alreadi scripted. In my opinion a good scripts could be a monster software like protools for windows or the izotope RX

As far as funding goes, we'll wait a few weeks on this as I have some other
things brewing. I was thinking about a music sound editor, but isn't
soundforge already scripted? I wonder what the price of the software would
be too since some of us have limited funds. I am hoping I can keep my
scripts free actually. I'll find out in the weeks to come.

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

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

Re: JAWS Scripting for a new application

I'll second the need and want for Google docs. I'm a college student, and
there's been several times this semester when one of my class mates suggests
that he puts a group project we're working on in Google docs so we can work
on it at home. Unfortunately I have to tell him that I can't access it.

I recall using a harmony remote before I lost my vision. As I recall, it was
a web application. Has this changed into an actual application or is it
still web interface?

John,

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 remotes though!

Don't remember which version of Adobe Reader works best with JAWS 9. But I

JAWS Scripting for a new application

John Martyn
 

Hi all,
While I wrap up some last minute scripting projects, I am looking for a new
application to script. I won't be doing any financial applications or office
applications this time, but any other suggestions are welcome.
I've gotten rather quick at doing this so challenges are also welcome.

HI FOLKS. SMALL PROBLEM. I'M USING JAWS NINE AND WINDOWS XP. LATELY, IT SEEMS LIKE WHENEVER I TRY TO GET A PDF FILE TO READ, ADOBE COMES UP BUT THE FILE ITSELF DOESN'T. IT SEEMS TO STOP ONCE ACROBAT LOADS. ANY SUGGESTIONS? SHOULD I UNINSTALL AND THEN REINSTALL ACROBAT OR IS THERE AN EARLIER VERSON I SHOULD BE USING. IT SEEMED TO WORK FINE FOR AWHILE, BUT NOW NOTHING.THANKS

Hello,
It is a PDF to TXT converter that I got off the Program-L list. It is developed by Jamal Mazrui the owner of the:
http://www.empowermentzone.com/
Which is a sight that is filled with information and articles for just about every aspect of a blind person's life.
If you want other programs as well, you might want to go to:
http://grabbag.alacorncomputer.com/
These programs are for a little more advanced computer users but there might be something there that sounds cool.
Thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs

I have saved it to my Local Disc C drive in a folder I created which I
called Benefits.

Hi Rick,

Have you saved the handbook yet? If so, where (in your document folder? desktop?, etc). Let me know and I'll tell you how to get to it in Kurzweil. I just tried to write out directions for an example and I am afraid it might confuse you if you do not have the file in your documents folder. Once we get this figure this out, you will be able to get to and open any of your files in Kurzweil.

Sandy:

How do you open a document in the Kurzweil program? I have Kurzweil, but the only way I know how to open a file in the Kurzweil program is to open one of the Kurzweil files I have scanned and saved in that format. I have never opened another file in a different format using Kurzweil. How do you do that?

Rick,

I too have had this problem. What I do is first save the PDF to my computer and then close it. Next I open it on my computer and then I can save it as a text file by hitting alt-f and follow this with the letter v. Once I have it in text I can usually go through it without any problem. Another way to convert it is if you have Kurzweil, it will automatically convert it when you open the document in the program.

Often when I do a JAWS Find after I get to the page I want to go to, it doesn't find the text, I hear a beep, then afterwards JAWS won't work on the page at all. It is just as if the screen were frozen.

Hi, Rick.

After you click on the link, do you navigate down the page in search of that
text? I find such webpages operate inconsistently, but usually (not always)
the text I want appears further down. Sometimes a JAWS find for the heading
gets me there. Other times, it takes the down arrow key and navigation
commands such as p an n.

However, on one website I use frequently, the text doesn't appear at all to
JAWS, even though it's on the screen, and none of my PDF tactics works. I
hope that isn't the case for you in this instance.

This year, my employer, instead of sending out a print copy of its open
enrollment handbook with the summary of medical benefits for 2012, has made
its open enrollment handbook available only online, and I am having a
terrible time navigating it. Whenever I go to the link in the Table of
Contents for the page I want to read, I hit the Enter key and wait for the
page to load. But when it does, I always find myself still on the Table of
Contents page instead of on the page I really want to read. Am I doing
something wrong, or is the handbook in such a format that JAWS can't read
it?

Re: Research It was a few questions:

Chris Smart <csmart8@...>
 

yeah, go to the websites directly and look up what you want.
ResearchIt will break whenever something on the target site changes. This issue comes up here all the time.

At 06:29 AM 10/23/2011, you wrote:
Speaking of Research It, I have had some success with several categories,
but no success with others. I have used the amazon, area code, weather, and
some of the news sites. I can't get any results with the wiktionary,
wikipedia or MLB choices. I am using JAWS 12. Any hints for more success?
Thanks.
