Drew,

Not sure, but it is possible. Go to a Windows 7 list or a windows for blind
list and ask; I'm sure someone there will be able to give you an answer.

User Access Control,

Microsoft added it to windows starting with Vista then toned it down a
little with windows 7. It helps solve the problem of users basically
needing an administrator rights account to use their personal
computers but that providing so much access it leaves them open to
numerous attack vectors. With UAC enabled an administrator account
only has elevated permissions at discrete times rather than always,
and the user is asked whether certain programs should be allowed to
perform system modifying actions. Unfortunately jaws still hasn't
quite caught up to this new reality.

Re: help with punctuation

Soronel Haetir
 

Use settings center (JAWS+F2 then settings center). You can only
change punctuation levels for the default application so hit
ctrl+shift+d to switch to that and then arrow down until you find the
punctuation group. Open that with the right arrow key then move down
to select "Customize Punctuation", hit space and you can hit modify
the level at which each character is spoken.

Re: help with punctuation

Adrian Spratt
 

Phyllis,

From what you say, JAWS 13 has the same limitation here that JAWS 12 and
earlier versions have. The following is a slightly modified version of an
earlier post of mine.

Permanent punctuation settings are not made in the configuration manager.
Instead, you find them in JAWS options (insert-j), then by arrowing down to
and clicking on the voices submenu. From there you press enter on voice
adjustment and tab to punctuation.

The default setting is for global voices. However, you want different levels
of punctuation for different applications. In JAWS 11, this requires
creating a voice profile.
Below, I'll copy the example Bill white posted to this list to suggest how
this can be done. Let me say that this process is ridiculously complicated
for a setting that many JAWS users would want to change from time to time.
Other listers will write in if the process has been changed, and hopefully
simplified, in JAWS 13. Here goes:

I have an example of a profile that goes with OE. I called the profile oe,
as in o e, and the thing I wanted to change was the punctuation. In the
configuration manager, it is impossible to have punctuation set to none,
unless you customize every single punctuation entry. But in the Profile,
there is a selection, Punctuation none.
So I set the punctuation to none, and also slowed down the voice so that it
would be slower than my default voice.
In this way, I customized OE, so it would not read all the punctuation, and
would have a slower reading rate.
After saving the profile, I started OE. Then I Pressed Insert+J to bring up
the Jaws context menu. From there I went back to options, voices, select
profile, and selected OE. Then I checked the box that said: For OE.
It was done, and whenever OE starts, it comes up with the parameters I set
in the JAWS profile.

** Punctuation Levels

You have to go into settings Center and search for the item wanting to stay
because as you do it via the Insert+v command is only for the time you have

Asunto: settings not staying put

hey guys:
I am using windows 7, jaws 12, the 525 one, and internet explorer 8 I think.

the issue is my document presentation mode keeps going back to screen
layout, and I want it to stay with simple layout.

I can go and change it with insert-v, and it stays till I alt-tab away from
internet explorer and then when I go back to it, its back to screen layout.

now I have heard people say on this list to do a ctrl-d or whatever that is
for default settings, and I just get a ding sound when I do ctrl-d from the
insert-v dialogue box.

this is really getting annoying.
please help.
thank you so much for your time in this matter.

some useful information;

David <davidwhitehead1957@...>
 

Good afternoon to all;

I hope the following will be of some help to someone.
I just got finished helping one of my clients with updating her jaws.

She contacted me saying "My jaws just won't update!
No matter what I do!
So I gave her a call,
She's right, her jaws wouldn't update,
Until I turned off the UAC in vista.
Once I turned off the UAC? Boom, her jaws was immediately activated, once we
went to the activation over the internet.
Now I'm not implying that this is for all cases, however, if one runs into
the same difficulty, I would turn off the UAC, your computer will need to
restart,
Then activate,
Go through the startup wizard,
Once everything is okay,
Turn back on the UAC,
And restart the computer.
Note, make sure you have the jaws13 set to start.

Hope this will be helpful for someone.

Have a good day.


May be off topic email sounds Hi, I'm trying to change email notification sounds in Thunderbird. I got one new sound, but I was wondering where to find some more; I need at least four more.

How do you have Jaws12 set? Is it possible that you have Jaws to start at startup as well? If so, they are both tryi ng to start and would cause a slow down of your computer.

Subject: jaws 13 start up after logging in

Hi,

I installed jfw 13 yesturday and I am noticing after I log in, jaws either
doesn't start or it takes a while before it starts.

The necessary boxes are checked to start automatically for all users and
etc.

I have jfw 12 and 13 on here but have 13 set to start up at the log on
window and after I log into windows but again, it is either lagging after
windo logs in or it isn't starting. Any ideas?

Thank you.

Re: Fs Reader won't change directory

Gerardo,

I press the change directory button first, then I browse for the new folder.
That works for me with Windows 7.

Subject: Fs Reader won't change directory


Hi guys: I'd like to get FsReader to change to look for Daisy books wwithin
a folder I created in Documents (using Windows7) called daisy books: I
follow the steps of

1. Opening FS Reader;

2. Going to Open and Shift+tab to the list of folders and files;

3. Select Daisy Books within Documents;

4. Lastly tab once to the Change Directory button.

<It is upon this button that Windows plays an error sound; try as I might
upon selecting other folders FsReader does the same thing. Is this normal
behavior in Jaws12 Spanish version?

Keyboard help is turned on with JAWS key plus 1 on the numbers row. As
Steve said, it's a toggle.

Richard,

You might try setting Jaws into keyboard help mode by pressing the Jaws key
and F1. Once you've done that, try pressing the navigation row keys. On
the Focus 80 display, navigation row key 43 cycles between contracted
Braille off, contracted Braille for display, and contracted Braille for
input. Of course, you won't have a navigation row 43 key, but perhaps a
different key is assigned for this purpose for the Focus 40. Don't forget
to press Jaws key and F1 again to get back to normal operation.

Hope this helps,

Steve Parker

Thanks. I do find the contracted braille option there but that seems to be
for just the display itself, not the keyboard input style. The display is
showing contracted content. I noticed it was set to use a Pacmate display
as the default and corrected it to a FOCUS display, but it didn't make any
obvious changes to what is happening. Obviously the Pacmate display (when
removed and used as a standalone) is just that-- a display. The FOCUS 40
BT is a Braille Keyboard and a Display.

Then again, the menu option only says "FOCUS", and I think all except the
Bluetooth FOCUS display have no braille keyboard. Maybe the proper driver
is simply missing? Hopefully I can get to them at FS on the phone soon. I
think either a driver is missing or I must be overlooking some sort of
keyboard preferences option somewhere...

I also have yet to get the keyboard working as a Bluetooth device. I can
get it to show up as "paired", but something is wrong when I use it that
way-- nothing happens except that the device does come on and the device
name pops up in braille (and in the bluetooth list of the computer) so it
is indeed coming on. It simply has to be plugged in via USB right now to
be used.

Most of the problem is probably my lack of familiarity with all of this
stuff. It is just all very different that what I'm familiar with. (I'm a
Macintosh Graphics person. )

If I figure anything out I'll post it in case others are interested.

Thanks,

Richard

Under setting center, go to Braille, general, translation options. I
suppose just tinker there, but it sounds like the right place.

Good luck!

Hi Richard,

I don't know the answer to your question, but Freedom Scientific
might. You may want to give them a call.

uncontracted. I actually didn't realize the keyboard was running
uncontracted as she flies along pretty quickly and it looks the same
to
confused sighted parents like myself trying to keep track of our
braille-using kids.

Can someone tell me how to toggle between contracted and uncontracted
(grade
2 / grade 1) please? I suspect it is a simple keystroke, but I'm not
finding
the solution in the print manual, nor does my third grader see it in
the
braille version. (She's actually often able to find things like this
for
herself.)

Thanks so much for any help with this.
