Hi, you can do the following.
press windows r to open the run box
type in cmd & press enter
this will open the command prompt.
once its open type in
systeminfo & press enter
this will give you what you are looking for along with a lot of other
details, how ever a lot of the output will be pushed up the screen &
the jaws cant read it, do the following
press alt space
this will open a menu bar, up arrow till you hear edit sub menu
right arrow once, & then down arrow till you hear select all, then press
enter
this will highlight all of the output, press enter & this will add it
to the clipboard.
press windows r again to open the run box
now type in notepad
press enter & this will open a blank notepad document.
now press control v to paist all the output.
now you can go back to the top & read it.
you may need to maximise the notepad window.

There are other ways to get the info you are looking for, but without
knowing what OS you are on & what style config the control panel view
is in, I think its better to say to go this way.

If you need any help understanding any of the output I am happy to help.

Good luck

Re: How to check windows version and hardware

Mike & Barbara <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Nickus,

Another way to get to system properties is press the Windows key+ the pause
key, then route your Jaws cursor to the PC cursor, press the page up key, &
arrow down 1 line at a time to read the information. Hope this helps. Take
care.

Your welcome, glad it worked out for you.
the other ways are, go to the control panel then system,
this will give you OS, CPU & amount of ram.
or you can get software such as Lavalys EVEREST
this will tell you just about everything including serial numbers of
hard drives & so on,
great to keep in case you have a crash & need to put in a warranty claim.

How did you go fixing your friends system?
If I can help with that let me know.

I keep having these moments of wanting to save this or that digest, because it contains a mention of this or that JAWS-accessible program for whatever purpose I might need someday. If I saved every digest that mentioned something like that, I'd have a library, and no real way to organize it.

Some enterprising person should think about creating a website, where JAWS users can list programs they find accessible. The user can state what version of Windows, JAWs, and the program in question is in use, and whether the JAWS cursor is absolutely necessary to access the program. Some sort of rating system... A comment/thread for each program... Basically, a database of accessible programs with JAWS.

Where is everyone getting their scripts anyway? I know some of you write them, but some of you pass them around. Why not a script library/database too?

There is just so much good info on this mailing list, but so many veteran users get disgusted over having to reteach the same things over and over; there will always be more new fish in the JAWS pond. Many users get confused as to whether the problem they are experiencing is a JAWS problem or their lack of general computer knowledge (Been there). There needs to be a JAWS users' research website that users can update.

Re: recomendation for backing up or copping a dvd

David <davidwhitehead1957@...>
 

Well, if your talking about DVD'S, I would assume, your talking about
windows 7?

However to answer your question, yes, windows media player is more than
capable of doing what you want.


here's some steps I used for one of my clients;
this uses windows media player to burn CD'S.


BurningCD Using WindowsMediaPlayer;
This is assuming your using WLM12;

1, place blank CD in CD-Drive.
When the audio wizard comes up, press alt+f4 to close.

2, navigate to desktop, windows+m=desktop,
now, you'll need to go to your music folder,
it may be on an external, or, perhaps in your documents,


Now, M=music press enter.

3, select a album to burn;
Note, you need to enter once on the folder name,
Then enter again, to have the files show.
Now you should see a number of files, maybe 13, 10, 15.

4, ctrl+a=SelectAll

5, press applications key, down arrow or up arrow and enter on send to
sub
menu,
Now, up arrow and enter on your CDDrive.

6, you will now see this screen;

Burn a Disc
How do you want to use this disc?
Disc title: Nov 23 2010
Like a USB flash drive
Save, edit, and delete files on the disc anytime. The disc will work on
computers running Windows XP or later. (Live File System)
With a CD/DVD player
Burn files in groups and individual files can't be edited or removed
after
burning. The disc will also work on most computers. (Mastered)
Which one should I choose?
Next Cancel

So, you would tab and enter on,
Next button,

7, give a little time you should hear;
Files Ready to Be Written to the Disc
Press applications key,
Up or down arrow and enter on burn.
Note, your still in your CDDrive with the files showing.


8, now you will see this screen;
Burn to Disc
Burn to Disc
Prepare this disc
Disc title:
Nov 23 2010
Recording speed:

New files being burned to the disc will replace any files already on the
disc if they have the
same name.
Close the wizard after the files have been burned
Next Cancel
Here you would press spacebar or the enter key on next.

9, now will see the following screen;


Burn to Disc
Burn to Disc
Burn an audio CD
Music files can be burned to disc as data for playback on the computer,
or
in a format that will play
on a home or car stereo.
Which format do you want to use?
Make an audio CD (for standard audio CD players)
Make a data CD (for computers and some CD players)
Next Cancel

The make a audio cd is checked, so go to next, and press enter.

10, you will now hear;

Windows media player, jaws will repeat this, media player, media player.

11, go to desktop,
Tab twice,

One time is the start button,
The next press of the tab, you will probably hear,
Computer, or, something just right arrow until you hear,
Windows media player, press enter.

This is now the last step,

With windows media player opened,

Use the tab key, until you hear;
Start burn button,
Alt+s,

So press the spacebar,

And, you can also try;
Once you enter on windows media player,
You could just press alt+s=burn,

I hope this helps.

Hi thanks for the info. So as I understand, you do the initial
training and then after that does it train itself and improve as you
use it? I suppose it creates some files someware with the info it
learned while you used it, if lets say you install it on another
machine or format your machine, can you easally transfer the files
back or do you have to start training it from scratch. I agree with
you FS should focus more on feetures that people use for work, if I
want damm sport scors I just google it, don't think I ever used
research it after checking it out once.

I think it works pretty well with JAWS right out of the box (no scripts),
provided (i) you get the settings right (and that may take a little
tinkering) and (ii) you get sighted assistance for 15 to 30 minutes to
help
with the training. J-SAY breaks up the training into little phrases that
you
can repeat immediately after JAWS says the phrases (like repeating
wedding
vows at a typical U.S. wedding). Without J-SAY, training is a bear. If,
however, you can sit pretty far from the screen, get someone to read what
is
on the screen softly, and use a decent noise-canceling headset microphone
when you read into the computer, you'll be fine. To train it, you have
to
read a short essay.
As for the "Is it worth it," that's a hard one to answer. It is amazingly
accurate. I think 95% is stretching a little. I would say it averages an
error every 5 lines. If you don't screw-up and leave the microphone on
while you are talking on the phone or to someone else, it does get better
and better. The very act of correcting it really is teaching it. You
shouldn't trust either the voice "stop listening" command or the mute
button. Instead, use the keystroke to shut off the microphone.
As for the licensing, I'm not really sure. I only have it on my laptop,
which I carry back and forth to work. I part with my laptop only when
sleeping and showering, and sometimes ... <SMILE>
Probably the biggest drawback for blind users is something, the last time
I
checked, J-SAY had not fixed, and that is homonyms. It is pretty good
about
the most common homonyms like to, two, and too or their, there, and
they're.
For more obscure ones like discreet and discrete, Naturally Speaking is
challenged. Moreover, if it sounded above like I just typed the same word
or
words multiple times, then you know how challenging it is for a blind
person
to catch homonyms.
With Window-Eyes, I created a special homonyms dictionary, which I could
load when I wanted to proof something. It would say and spell the word.
I haven't figured out how to do that with JAWS (I can manually create
the
entries in a dictionary (speech settings file), but I cannot swap it in
and
out, and keeping it running all the time is too annoying.) I've
suggested
to Freedom Scientific that, in Text Analyzer, an option be added so that
one
could hear (not here) homonyms. Note, with my homonyms dictionary idea,
if
I needed to know about the homonyms, the last phrase would have said hear
h
e eigh r and here h e r e.
So far, I've heard nothing from Freedom Scientific.
For me, having a feature like that is more important and more jobs
related
than is, for example, getting the Red Sox scores on Research It, but I
know
Eric is a Red Sox fan. <SMILE>

Hi guys. I just recently heard about dragon and wanted to ask some
questions. Based on these posts I gather it works with jaws so there
goes my first question, just not sure does it work with or without
scripts? Well second thing, is it really worth the money, is it really
very accurate I think they clame 95% or something and last thing can I
install it on my desktop and laptop or would I have to buy 2 licences?

Subject: RE: Jaws 12 with Dragon Naturallyspeaking 11.5

Hello:
I am writing this e-mail message using Dragon NaturallySpeaking.
One of the most important things to do in Naturally Speaking is to get
rid
of the Dragon bar. Actually, the setting is to confine the Dragon bar to
the
system tray. Other than to exit Naturally Speaking, I will rarely use
the
Dragon Bar.
The next most important setting is to set up hotkeys. For example, I set
Shift Plus F-11 to turn the microphone on and off. I use the pause key
temporarily to silence the microphone.
None of these keys will conflict. In fact, if you buy J-Say, certain
Dragon
hotkeys will be suggested, but you can use anything you like. Don't
worry
about conflicts.
If you have a good headset microphone which is noise canceling, and if
you
can get a little cited assistance to help you through the training, you
really do not need J-Say or J-Tools. I actually own J-Say, but I stopped
using it and uninstalled it. It tended to mess up JAWS, and the
installation
package was not ready for prime time.
It was particularly problematic to install in a corporate environment
with
heavy duty security settings. In fact, I don't think I ever got a good
installation of J-Say.
Now, I will dictate an entire document, such as this e-mail message, and
then go back and proofread it with speech off. I never used the JAWS
cursor
for anything. When I find a word that is wrong, I tend to highlight the
word
and then press F10. That brings up a dialog box which, initially,
contains
an edit field. If you know how to spell the correct word, just type it
in
and hit enter.
If you don't, hit tab and then arrow up and down through the choices.
Once
you have identified the term which is most appropriate, you can either
hit
enter or hit tab to times to the okay button. I hope this helps.

Hi.

Please. What settings below work best with Jaws with and without J-Tools
or
J-Say?
Jaws 12, DNS Premium 11.5, Win XP MCE.

It would be very good to have comments and information on how each item
and
choice below effects the basic functionality of Jaws without special
scripts. Then, how the same settings effect J-Tools and J-Say.

I don't have J-Tools or J-Say yet. Sometimes I can work the spelling
dialog
with the Jaws cursor but I have some difficulty knowing when the dialog
appears.Also have some trouble with the main standard Dragon toolbar.
There is a "microphone buttonbutton" that doesn't appear to activate, no
matter how I do it with spacebar or enter. I do have DNS set to start
with
the microphone ready to turn on by voice but sometimes I need to use the
toolbar or the system tray. Sometimes the system tray microphone
button
won't activate and doesn't turn on the microphone. It's also a lot of
messing around. I could set up DNS hot keys but don't want to conflict
with
Jaws or the scripts if and when I get them. Suggestions for hotkey
combinations also welcome.

Even switching focus to the Dragon bar is a bit confusing because Jaws
doesn't say a thing and I always have to press tab once to get to that
button.

I've written to the Jaws list first as I don't have the scripts so far.
Hope this is ok.
