Sorry for delay in responding.

To set Frame Restriction, you first of all turn on the Jaws Cursor with numpad minus – then  pressing jaws key plus R will cycle you through all the frame restriction modes.

Very strange, but not surprising for me and my system.

I’m running Jaws 2020 with the latest update.

I hit the numpad-minus to switch to the jaws cursor.

But, I don’t get the “frame restrictions” so maybe there is something else I need to do?

 

Thanks for all the help.

This is very weird.

Are you definitely using the Jaws rather than the PC Cursor though I am not sure that this makes a difference.

I am just going to do it now and record the speech history which

will show it working.

 

You will see that the coordinate’s announcements change as I move the Jaws cursor.

Jaws announces  Jaws cursor and then gives the coordinates   followed by the frame restriction each time I press alt delete.

Start of speech history.

Well,

Switching to the Jaws cursor and hitting alt+delete gives me the same numbers no matter where I am.

It says:

1578, 563

Thanks for the idea, but that doesn’t seem to get me the info I need.

I’ll keep diging.

  1. Turn on the Jaws cursor  with numpad minus
  2. Press alt delete when you want the co-ordinates announced.
  3. For  a more convenient reference use the Jaws speech history – insert space and then H to have a list of all Jaws announcements  that you can copy and paste including the coordinates announcement.

OK, thanks Jim, I have gotten a frame basically done but for one vital piece.

How do I get the Jaws cursor coordinates?

I probably should know this, but I don’t.

I really just need to know how far down the screen I am when I find the start with the jaws cursor.  At least, I think that is what I need…

Hello, the frame viewer should work for this.

You designate a part of the screen using coordinates that you define using the Jaws cursor, and you may specify whether you wish to assign a hotkey to that part of the screen or whether you want that portion of the screen to read automatically when the screen changes.

Press JawsKey F2 and you can get to frame viewer from there.

Thanks.

I don’t think skim reading is the answer, but here is a more detailed explanation of what the program does.

 

I have an html document open, I hit a hotkey, f6 in this case, and it shows the resulting errors in a window toward the bottom of the screen.

That text is in Black on Honeydew.

 

Is there a way to set a hotkey to read only text in that color combo on the screen, that will still allow me to do the normal editing in the areas needing fixing?

 

Or, to set a window around that portion of the screen when I can get sighted help to do that?

 

I could have done this in my sleep with Window-eyes, but since I am committed to do this with Jaws, I could use some help.

 

Like Leo had said in a previous question, if someone knows and could explain it as if they were explaining it to a 7-year old, that would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Richard

The standard price here in the UK for Leasey  Advanced is £50 – the same as was being offered for the Leasey  Total price on offer.

So for the same offer £50 price you get a lot more in Leasey Total – unfortunately it is features that I do not particularly want.

Well,

Switching to the Jaws cursor and hitting alt+delete gives me the same numbers no matter where I am.

It says:

1578, 563

Thanks for the idea, but that doesn’t seem to get me the info I need.

I’ll keep diging.

  1. Turn on the Jaws cursor  with numpad minus
  2. Press alt delete when you want the co-ordinates announced.
  3. For  a more convenient reference use the Jaws speech history – insert space and then H to have a list of all Jaws announcements  that you can copy and paste including the coordinates announcement.

OK, thanks Jim, I have gotten a frame basically done but for one vital piece.

How do I get the Jaws cursor coordinates?

I probably should know this, but I don’t.

I really just need to know how far down the screen I am when I find the start with the jaws cursor.  At least, I think that is what I need…

Hello, the frame viewer should work for this.

You designate a part of the screen using coordinates that you define using the Jaws cursor, and you may specify whether you wish to assign a hotkey to that part of the screen or whether you want that portion of the screen to read automatically when the screen changes.

Press JawsKey F2 and you can get to frame viewer from there.

Thanks.

I don’t think skim reading is the answer, but here is a more detailed explanation of what the program does.

 

I have an html document open, I hit a hotkey, f6 in this case, and it shows the resulting errors in a window toward the bottom of the screen.

That text is in Black on Honeydew.

 

Is there a way to set a hotkey to read only text in that color combo on the screen, that will still allow me to do the normal editing in the areas needing fixing?

 

Or, to set a window around that portion of the screen when I can get sighted help to do that?

 

I could have done this in my sleep with Window-eyes, but since I am committed to do this with Jaws, I could use some help.

 

Like Leo had said in a previous question, if someone knows and could explain it as if they were explaining it to a 7-year old, that would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Richard

Hello. I sent the following message to the mailing list for the Philadelphia
Computer Users Group for the Blind and Visually Impaired, which I moderate,
and wanted to send it here, as well.


From now until December 27 Hartgen Consultancy is offering Leasey Total for
50 British pounds, which is around $67 U.S. dollars. It is very difficult to
concisely summarize what this program does as it's a Swiss army knife filled
with tons of tools and utilities. Leasey Total comes with two modules,
Leasey Basic and Leasey Advanced.

Leasey Basic is for users who might consider themselves to be extreme
novices, very new to computers or perhaps users who just want a systematic,
predictable way of accessing the main programs on their computer. Instead of
dealing with the Windows start menu or the desktop there is a dedicated menu
known as the Leasey menu, which is read by a human voice. This menu includes
items such as Surf the Internet, Write a Document or Letter, Check Your
Email, Listen to the Radio, etc. It also offers context sensitive help,
using the same human speech which is offered in the menus. Leasey Basic
might also be helpful for users with cognitive difficulties. It also comes
with a training tutorial covering the basic features and is honestly one of
the best training tutorials I have heard in quite some time.


Leasey Advanced dispenses with the simplified menus and returns your
computer to its normal state with the start menu and desktop. It offers a
ton of additional features. Features that I personally like are:

Leasey Texts. This is a bit like the text expansion feature found in Word
except that you can use it globally. You can create a list of shortcuts
which can type in a pre-written piece of text, such as a shopping list,
signature to a letter, etc. You can also assign an abbreviation to a Leasey
text, such as typing the letters sig to type a signature.

Leasey clips allow you to save up to twelve pieces of text to areas not
unlike the clipboard. Each clip can be recalled, pasted anywhere and they
are available even with a computer restart.

Leasey Clock includes an alarm, countdown timer, stopwatch and even some
very nice Westminster chimes.

Leasey Radio offers a built-in radio tuner, available anywhere.

It offers so much more but those are just a few of its features. Leasey

offers far more detailed information about this software.

I know I've mentioned this program quite a bit in the past year. For the
record I am not affiliated with Hartgen Consultancy. Brian Hartgen and I are
nothing more than professionals in this industry. We have never met, never
worked with one another and I get absolutely no commission from any sales
which my messages might generate. I just feel that he's made some positive
and unique contributions in this space which are very beneficial to users of
JAWS and I just want to let everyone know about what he offers.

*Subject:* How does speech and sound scheme really work?

hello everyone,

well this is driving me absolutely insane, at first I thought it was not going to be any difficult, so I ventured myself into the settings.
After a while I noticed that I needed to read some instructions, so I googled and found some web sites, including freedom scientific web site where I could find what I was looking for. However, whether I thoroughly follow instructions or I try to use a bit of common sense and logic I just cannot make this speech and sound scheme feature work for me.

all I want to do is having jaws playing a sound every time it finds an attribute on a word.

Since I have tried it for a while, I would really appreciate if someone explains it for me as if I were a  seven year old kid lol

I'm using jaws 2020 and Microsoft office 2019, thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Jessica,
To be honest, I read it somewhere, but I don't recall where.  It's been
quite awhile ago.  I'm sure it's a quote by someone, but I just don't
know who or I would give them the credit.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

Hi
I apologize that my question is off topic, but who came up with the
quote at the end of your email?
It's helarious!

Thanks,
Jessica

moderated Re: Having Jaws read part of a screen in a specific color

Richard Turner
 

I don’t think skim reading is the answer, but here is a more detailed explanation of what the program does.

 

I have an html document open, I hit a hotkey, f6 in this case, and it shows the resulting errors in a window toward the bottom of the screen.

That text is in Black on Honeydew.

 

Is there a way to set a hotkey to read only text in that color combo on the screen, that will still allow me to do the normal editing in the areas needing fixing?

 

Or, to set a window around that portion of the screen when I can get sighted help to do that?

 

I could have done this in my sleep with Window-eyes, but since I am committed to do this with Jaws, I could use some help.

 

Like Leo had said in a previous question, if someone knows and could explain it as if they were explaining it to a 7-year old, that would be appreciated.

Thanks,

 

Richard

It sounds like you’re trying to do something with skim reading.

Hello all,

I have a program, CSS HTML Validator, that shows errors in the font colors, black on honeydew.

 

Is there a way to set up a hotkey that I could press and just hear the section of the screen that is Black on Honeydew, but could still read the rest normally?

 

I used to do this with Window-eyes quite easily, but cannot wrap my head around how to do this with Jaws.

 

I think it shows it in a section on the lower portion of the screen.

 

Thanks,

Hi Mike and fellows,

I finally did it, and now I have jaws reading quoted text and text with attribute using a different voice. Well, at first I wanted jaws to play sounds but after I understood how to do it and tested it, I decided on keeping those other voices. Before asking you, I Had fallen in a little pitfall, which was not other but trying to set all the actions for all the attributes at once. In other words, when I had to choose which one attribute I wanted to modify, I chose underline, bold, and italic all at once, and for this reason it didn't work. So, if anyone is interested in going over this feature, this is a good piece of information to take into account. A couple of things, the alias and the synth you're currently using have to be taken into account as well. Note that for every synth you have to modify different alias for different attributes. In fact, it sounds more logic for me to do this first, and then edit a new scheme because when you get to the part where you have to choose the alias, you will already have the customized alias that you previously modified.

Thanks guys again, and aside from the links you shared with me, you can go through this other which clarified even more the information for me.
