It's called text analyzer.
http://www.freedomscientific.com/downloads/JAWS/JAWS-whats-new.asp
Use your navigate by heading key, H, on that page until you get to the heading "text analyzer". Then you can read what it does, how to turn it on etc. etc.

Those navigation features are common for screen readers, including
Window-Eyes and System Access. I do like the virtual ribbon workaround in
Jaws, and I like the research-it feature, but unfortunately, it seems harder
to maintain than it is probably worth. Some of the features like the word
analyzer I don't find much use for, but maybe I would in certain academic
pursuits.

About the only thing Jaws has going for it right now is the marginal cost to
me of learning a new program. I hope they gdet time at F.S. to rework the
system into some smaller modules that aren't so klugey and bug-prone.

Hi Everyone:

Since joining this list about a week ago, I've noticed a great deal
of negativity about JAWS. I don't want to downplay its problems
-- it has a few. And it seems like many on this list have encountered more
difficulties than I have which, naturally, puts one in a gloomier frame of
mind, not only with regard to the application itself but also to its future. Yes, JAWS's pricetag is waaay too high, its scripts are meager, its
glitchiness is frustrating, its documentation is lackluster, its tendency
not to do what you set it to do is legendary... But... It has some pretty
awesome features as well.

- navigating via SelectAGraphic/Paragraph/Heading features have
- revolutionized the way I read webpages. Experience with these can get me
- to the content faster than sighted people, provided that I'm at least
- passingly familiar with the website in question. SelectAParagraph is
- probably my favorite feature in JAWS. Go to any News site, click on an
- article and tell me that SelectAParagraph doesn't rock. You avoid all the
- mess and get right to the targeted content. For me, it's almost replaced
- placemarkers which were never reliable anyway given the rate at which
- webpages are redesigned.

- Personalized settings for webpage? Fantastic! I hate inline frames. If
- there are any Slate Magazine fans on this list, having to bump over that
- stupid Facebook inline frame to read articles drove me bunkers until I
- found out how to turn that off in CTRL+JAWSKey+V. And Slate. Com isn't the
- only site that puts that Facebook inline in inconvenient places. And for
- those like me who've been all-but-driven to madness by SayAll's obsessive
- need to vocalize Same-Page links on Wikipedia pages, you can turn that
- off under the Links branch in personalized settings. And the best part is
- that you can customize these settings for individual websites.

- Finally, some of the navigation keys are pretty sweet. Visited links is
- the most useful, for me. Going right to that spot you typically visit and
- hitting enter, so click. Going right to placemarkers on webpages that
- don't update a lot? Nice. Jumping to lines on a page? Paging through
- paragraphs? I use them all to get through the mess.

My intention is not to chastise. Like I mentioned above, JAWS has
its problems and its important to point them; I recognize that. So for all
of you who've held Freedom Scientific to account over JAWS's issues, I raise
my glass to you. But it has some pretty amazing navigational features as
well and I don't want that to be forgotten in the din.

Cheers,
Spence

PS: Does anyone know if the JAWS developers have any intentions of
implementing that Voiceover-in-Safari feature for the Mac which keeps all
webpage menus closed until you click on them to open them? If that wouldn't
clean up web browsing for Jaws in IE or Firefox...

The Windows7 interface


The Windows7 interface is brand new to those who are accustomed to
Windows XP but, in my opinion, it's so much easier to access and
follow. If you don't mind bearing with me, I can give you a look/feel
and a overview of how the start menu works.



The menu consists of several elements.

. Instant Search Edit Field

. A List of frequently accessed locations

. A toolbar

. List of applications

. An "All Programs" button



Instant Search

When you first open the Start menu, focus is placed in the Instant
Search field. You can type text into this field to quickly locate a
program, document, email, website in your history and more. If you
want to open WordPad for example, type, "wordpad" without the quotes
and focus is immediately placed on WordPad. You can press ENTER to
launch the application.



Focus within the Instant search field is unique. It always has focus.
Even
if you use the UP AND DOWN ARROW to navigate among the search results,
press BACKSPACE and you remove the last letter you typed. Press any
letter and it's added to your search term. You can use the UP AND
DOWN ARROW at any time to review the search results.



Clear the results and return to an empty Instant Search field at any
time with ESCAPE.



Take some time to experiment with this first feature and I think
you'll find it's much more intuitive than slogging through menus.



Pinning Items to the Start Menu

If you find an application you use a lot, you can pin it to the start
menu.
After locating it with instant search, press the WINODWS APPLICATION
KEY and locate the option to "pin to start menu." Activate the option
and the application is appended to the top of the Start Menu. When
you open the start menu, just press UP AND DOWN ARROW to navigate among
the items.
Press
ENTER on a pinned item to launch the item.



You can unpin items in the same manner. Focus on a pinned item and
open the Windows Application menu. Activate "unpin from Start Menu"
to remove the item from the Start Menu. The item is removed but you
can always find it using Instant Search.



You can pin documents, email, applications, web sites and more to your
start menu. It's a pretty powerful feature of Windows 7.



Frequently Accessed Locations

Use TAB once from within the Instant Search Field to locate a list of
frequently used locations. Use UP AND DOWN ARROW to navigate among
the options. Press ENTER to launch the associated item.



Toolbar

Press RIGHT ARROW once from within the Instant Search and the shut
down option is located. Press ENTER to shut down your computer. For
additional options, press RIGHT ARROW once more. This opens a list of
options that includes lock, log off, restart and more. Press ENTER on
any of these items to activate them.



All Programs

The All Programs button is just above the Instant Search. Press UP
ARROW to focus on it immediately. Press ENTER on the option to
display a list of all the applications on your computer. Much like
the original XP menu.



Press ENTER to expand a folder and review its contents and ENTER to
launch an item.



Close the list and return the instant search field at any time with
ESCAPE.



Jump Lists

Windows 7 features a new feature called Jump Lists. If you have
multiple documents open in an application, you can locate these
documents in the start menu.



For example, I have word pinned to my Start Menu. If I have five
documents open in word, I can focus on Word in my Start Menu and tap
the RIGHT ARROW KEY to display a list of open documents. UP AND DOWN
ARROW navigates among the documents. I press ENTER on my choice and
focus moves to the document
immediately. I like this much better than using ALT-TAB to move among
all
my documents and open applications.



The Windows Taskbar also has jump lists and additional features that I
find irreplaceable and a wonderful improvement to the operating
system.

Hi, everyone.

Does anyone have a list of settings to optimize Jaws performance in
Windows
7?

I am about to get a new work laptop with Windows 7, and would like to
get
things started off on the right foot if possible.

Thanks very much.

Hello there;

Well, if your considering windows live mail, and your going to use a gmail

It's funny you should ask this, because I am investigating this very
question as we speak.

What I have heard is that Windows Live Mail is closest to Outlook Express,
which I currently use on a Windows XP machine.

So, I'll probably start with the Live Mail option.

The trick will be synchronizing it with my personal G-mail account.

If you have any thoughts on how to gget Windows Live Mail, and how to
synchronize it with my g-mail account, that would be appreciated.

Hello sir;

Not sure if you no this,

What email client will you use, since windows 7 doesn't come with a email

You have choice, windows live mail which is free,
MSoutlook 2007 or 2010 in fact even 2003 would work, also thunder bird,

Hello there;

The easiest way is to,

1, go to start menu, you will hear, search box edit,
Type in, theme, you then will hear;
Change the theme press enter.
Now you have landed in the list of themes,

The trick is now to find the classic theme,
You will need to use your arrow keys,

Once you hear jaws announce classic theme, press enter, you should hear a

Those navigation features are common for screen readers, including
Window-Eyes and System Access. I do like the virtual ribbon workaround in
Jaws, and I like the research-it feature, but unfortunately, it seems harder
to maintain than it is probably worth. Some of the features like the word
analyzer I don't find much use for, but maybe I would in certain academic
pursuits.

About the only thing Jaws has going for it right now is the marginal cost to
me of learning a new program. I hope they gdet time at F.S. to rework the
system into some smaller modules that aren't so klugey and bug-prone.

Subject: JAWS and Negativity


Hi Everyone:

Since joining this list about a week ago, I've noticed a great deal
of negativity about JAWS. I don't want to downplay its problems
-- it has a few. And it seems like many on this list have encountered more
difficulties than I have which, naturally, puts one in a gloomier frame of
mind, not only with regard to the application itself but also to its future. Yes, JAWS's pricetag is waaay too high, its scripts are meager, its
glitchiness is frustrating, its documentation is lackluster, its tendency
not to do what you set it to do is legendary... But... It has some pretty
awesome features as well.

- navigating via SelectAGraphic/Paragraph/Heading features have
- revolutionized the way I read webpages. Experience with these can get me
- to the content faster than sighted people, provided that I'm at least
- passingly familiar with the website in question. SelectAParagraph is
- probably my favorite feature in JAWS. Go to any News site, click on an
- article and tell me that SelectAParagraph doesn't rock. You avoid all the
- mess and get right to the targeted content. For me, it's almost replaced
- placemarkers which were never reliable anyway given the rate at which
- webpages are redesigned.

- Personalized settings for webpage? Fantastic! I hate inline frames. If
- there are any Slate Magazine fans on this list, having to bump over that
- stupid Facebook inline frame to read articles drove me bunkers until I
- found out how to turn that off in CTRL+JAWSKey+V. And Slate. Com isn't the
- only site that puts that Facebook inline in inconvenient places. And for
- those like me who've been all-but-driven to madness by SayAll's obsessive
- need to vocalize Same-Page links on Wikipedia pages, you can turn that
- off under the Links branch in personalized settings. And the best part is
- that you can customize these settings for individual websites.

- Finally, some of the navigation keys are pretty sweet. Visited links is
- the most useful, for me. Going right to that spot you typically visit and
- hitting enter, so click. Going right to placemarkers on webpages that
- don't update a lot? Nice. Jumping to lines on a page? Paging through
- paragraphs? I use them all to get through the mess.

My intention is not to chastise. Like I mentioned above, JAWS has
its problems and its important to point them; I recognize that. So for all
of you who've held Freedom Scientific to account over JAWS's issues, I raise
my glass to you. But it has some pretty amazing navigational features as
well and I don't want that to be forgotten in the din.

Cheers,
Spence

PS: Does anyone know if the JAWS developers have any intentions of
implementing that Voiceover-in-Safari feature for the Mac which keeps all
webpage menus closed until you click on them to open them? If that wouldn't
clean up web browsing for Jaws in IE or Firefox...

Re: Need Settings for optimizing Jaws in Windows 7

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

I just played with Windows Live Mail for 10 minutes. It feels more like plain old lousy Webmail.
Is that the way it is supposed to work or have, as I suspect, the folks in our IT department brain-damaged Live Mail?

Re: Need Settings for optimizing Jaws in Windows 7

David <davidwhitehead1957@...>
 

The Windows7 interface


The Windows7 interface is brand new to those who are accustomed to Windows
XP but, in my opinion, it's so much easier to access and follow. If you
don't mind bearing with me, I can give you a look/feel and a overview of
how the start menu
works.



The menu consists of several elements.

. Instant Search Edit Field

. A List of frequently accessed locations

. A toolbar

. List of applications

. An "All Programs" button



Instant Search

When you first open the Start menu, focus is placed in the Instant Search
field. You can type text into this field to quickly locate a program,
document, email, website in your history and more. If you want to open
WordPad for example, type, "wordpad" without the quotes and focus is
immediately placed on WordPad. You can press ENTER to launch the
application.



Focus within the Instant search field is unique. It always has focus. Even
if you use the UP AND DOWN ARROW to navigate among the search results, press
BACKSPACE and you remove the last letter you typed. Press any letter and
it's added to your search term. You can use the UP AND DOWN ARROW at any
time to review the search results.



Clear the results and return to an empty Instant Search field at any time
with ESCAPE.



Take some time to experiment with this first feature and I think you'll find
it's much more intuitive than slogging through menus.



Pinning Items to the Start Menu

If you find an application you use a lot, you can pin it to the start menu.
After locating it with instant search, press the WINODWS APPLICATION KEY
and locate the option to "pin to start menu." Activate the option and the
application is appended to the top of the Start Menu. When you open the
start menu, just press UP AND DOWN ARROW to navigate among the items. Press
ENTER on a pinned item to launch the item.



You can unpin items in the same manner. Focus on a pinned item and open the
Windows Application menu. Activate "unpin from Start Menu" to remove the
item from the Start Menu. The item is removed but you can always find it
using Instant Search.



You can pin documents, email, applications, web sites and more to your start
menu. It's a pretty powerful feature of Windows 7.



Frequently Accessed Locations

Use TAB once from within the Instant Search Field to locate a list of
frequently used locations. Use UP AND DOWN ARROW to navigate among the
options. Press ENTER to launch the associated item.



Toolbar

Press RIGHT ARROW once from within the Instant Search and the shut down
option is located. Press ENTER to shut down your computer. For additional
options, press RIGHT ARROW once more. This opens a list of options that
includes lock, log off, restart and more. Press ENTER on any of these items
to activate them.



All Programs

The All Programs button is just above the Instant Search. Press UP ARROW to
focus on it immediately. Press ENTER on the option to display a list of all
the applications on your computer. Much like the original XP menu.



Press ENTER to expand a folder and review its contents and ENTER to launch
an item.



Close the list and return the instant search field at any time with ESCAPE.



Jump Lists

Windows 7 features a new feature called Jump Lists. If you have multiple
documents open in an application, you can locate these documents in the
start menu.



For example, I have word pinned to my Start Menu. If I have five documents
open in word, I can focus on Word in my Start Menu and tap the RIGHT ARROW
KEY to display a list of open documents. UP AND DOWN ARROW navigates among
the documents. I press ENTER on my choice and focus moves to the document
immediately. I like this much better than using ALT-TAB to move among all
my documents and open applications.



The Windows Taskbar also has jump lists and additional features that I find
irreplaceable and a wonderful improvement to the operating system.

Well, if your considering windows live mail, and your going to use a gmail
account, windows live will setup the account almost automatically.

If you need further assistance, let me know, I'll send you steps.

David:

It's funny you should ask this, because I am investigating this very
question as we speak.

What I have heard is that Windows Live Mail is closest to Outlook Express,
which I currently use on a Windows XP machine.

So, I'll probably start with the Live Mail option.

The trick will be synchronizing it with my personal G-mail account.

If you have any thoughts on how to gget Windows Live Mail, and how to
synchronize it with my g-mail account, that would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Tom in Michigan

Hello sir;

Not sure if you no this,
However, there's one decision you will need to make and that is,
What email client will you use, since windows 7 doesn't come with a email
client built in.

You have choice, windows live mail which is free,
MSoutlook 2007 or 2010 in fact even 2003 would work, also thunder bird,
which I no nothing about.
These are just a few.

Hello there;

The easiest way is to,

1, go to start menu, you will hear, search box edit,
Type in, theme, you then will hear;
Change the theme press enter.
Now you have landed in the list of themes,

The trick is now to find the classic theme,
You will need to use your arrow keys,

Once you hear jaws announce classic theme, press enter, you should hear a
sound, signifying the change, now alt+f4,

This is mostlikely the easier way,
This can also be done through the personalized items.
Through the desktop.

Hope this helps.

Can you tell me exactly how to accomplish this in Windows 7, once I get

Hello there;

Actually?

Things should work fine right out of the box.

The only change you may want, is to set the theme to classic, thus
taking
the
Desktop out of the alt+tab cycle.

Other wise?
Things should work just fine,
And really no need to navigate since you can find things through the
search
edit within the start menu.

Hi, everyone.

Does anyone have a list of settings to optimize Jaws performance in
Windows
7?

I am about to get a new work laptop with Windows 7, and would like to
get
things started off on the right foot if possible.

Thanks very much.

Re: [Bulk] Question on activation count

Tom Behler
 

Well, Peter, I just completed the activation re-set form, so will hopefully learn the outcome soon.

I am a bit distressed about FS's approach to the activation issue, since we all paid good money for various versions of Jaws over the years, but I guess that's the name of the game in the softwre design world today.

I used to do it over the website but FS once advised me that since I'm in the UK, taking in to account time difference, public holidays etc it would be best to contact my local distributor Sight and Sound. The last time Sight and Sound went to reset my activations they were told by FS that they couldn't do it. I then rang FS from the UK and had a debate with the person on the helpdesk and she reset my activation but only to 1, not 3.

I'm finding so much more that NVDA is working better with than JAWS that now I really won't be upgrading any further with JAWS after my SMA runs out. I also intend to take up all my issues with FS.

Hi, all.

I'm between computers here, and have a question about Jaws activation
counts.

I know I could call FS about this, but figured I might get a quicker
answer
from the list.

Regarding activations, does a single-license Jaws user like myself have a
given number of activations for each separate version of Jaws, or is the
allotted number of 3 activations constant across all versions of Jaws
collectively?

I am getting a couple of new computers set up for both office and home,
and

am trying to figure out how best to proceed, while still keeping an older
Windows XP machine around as a back-up in case that is needed as well.

I have Jaws 12, but a few earlier versions of Jaws that I could probably
use if neded, if that would give me more activations to work with.

Thanks!

Re: Need Settings for optimizing Jaws in Windows 7

David <davidwhitehead1957@...>
 

Hello there;

The easiest way is to,

1, go to start menu, you will hear, search box edit,
Type in, theme, you then will hear;
Change the theme press enter.
Now you have landed in the list of themes,

The trick is now to find the classic theme,
You will need to use your arrow keys,

Once you hear jaws announce classic theme, press enter, you should hear a
sound, signifying the change, now alt+f4,

This is mostlikely the easier way,
This can also be done through the personalized items.
Through the desktop.

Hope this helps.

Can you tell me exactly how to accomplish this in Windows 7, once I get Jaws

installed?

Thanks so much!

Hello there;

Actually?

Things should work fine right out of the box.

The only change you may want, is to set the theme to classic, thus taking
the
Desktop out of the alt+tab cycle.

Other wise?
Things should work just fine,
And really no need to navigate since you can find things through the
search
edit within the start menu.

Hi, everyone.

Does anyone have a list of settings to optimize Jaws performance in
Windows
7?

I am about to get a new work laptop with Windows 7, and would like to get
things started off on the right foot if possible.

Thanks very much.

Re: Adobe Acrobat Reader: search function

Ben Humphreys <brh@...>
 

Hamid,

Just to be clear, are you using the standard Acrobat find command Ctrl+F or the Jaws-specific Acrobat find command Ctrl+Ins+F?

In my experience, the standard Acrobat find command is worthless while the Jaws-specific Acrobat find command works well.

Hi all,

How can I use the Jaws search function for the entire document. It is apparently only looking in the current page!

Thanks,

Hamid

Re: [Bulk] Question on activation count

Peter:

Are you trying to re-set your activation count via the web site, or over the phone?

I'm about to embark on this process myself, out of necessity, so a curious mind wants to know. (smile)

Hmm, they have now refused to reset mine to more than one at a time. They claim I have had 33 activations in a few months. Can't think where they get that figure from and very annoying. I'm in the process of raising it as a complaint. They tried to sell me a dongle licence instead.

They are nice, but don't ask more than once every few months. If you're down
to 1 they will sometimes bump you back up to 3. But no more than 3.

That's what I thought, so my next question is "How liberal is FS when it
comes to getting your activation count re-set if needed?

Hi, all.

I'm between computers here, and have a question about Jaws activation
counts.

I know I could call FS about this, but figured I might get a quicker
answer
from the list.

Regarding activations, does a single-license Jaws user like myself have a
given number of activations for each separate version of Jaws, or is the
allotted number of 3 activations constant across all versions of Jaws
collectively?

I am getting a couple of new computers set up for both office and home,
and

am trying to figure out how best to proceed, while still keeping an older
Windows XP machine around as a back-up in case that is needed as well.

I have Jaws 12, but a few earlier versions of Jaws that I could probably
use if neded, if that would give me more activations to work with.

Thanks!

Tom from Michigan
