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...

in this issue, i think even though it is late, we can discuss jaws13
features, which FS should add.
according to me, one feature that jaws13 should have is that it should
allow us to select the list of textual errors in a list view, and then
select which one to edit. this becomes easier to edit our preffered
text.

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.

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.

Re: Jaws And Negativity.

Spencer McLean <smclean@...>
 

Valid points all. I'm a writer, so the health of my employment doesn't hinge on Excel. So I can well imagine how those who have to venture off the main path of web browsing/word processing get frustrated, and how I might have a better opinion of the application given that I don't have to hack my way through those particular jungles.

Well, in the end, the lens through which we evaluate something is almost always primarily colored by how much we paid for it. given the ridiculous pricetag, it should work better than it does. I just wish its virtues got kicked around a bit more than they do because maybe some people on this list aren't'aware of JAWS's more useful, esoteric commands.

anyway, my sympathies to those of you who have to soldier on.

Spence

PS: So sorry for that dashes thing in my original post. didn't notice before I hit send. 23 list items, huh? At least that wasn't JAWS's fault. ;)

Nope, you don't get any more activations. The only time the older versions might make a difference is if you run out of upgrades, then you could use a newer version as a demo and use the older version permanently.

You are given a certain number of keys. You can use those across any number of computers, provided you only use one at a time.

Stick with 10.3 and just delete the library file from your My Documents

ITunes will just create a new library file when you next launch it.

Loreal and Nickus are successful in using 10.4 on their systems with or
without the scripts, but most of the beta testers have had serious problems
with 10.4 and the latest scripts on Windows 7 in particular. That's why I'm
steering you away from that for now. Like me, you want to use ITunes, and

will be coming out in the next month or so. Therefore this conversation is
redundant, as fs have already decided what new features in jaws 13 will be.
Cheers
Alex

Subject: let us discuss jaws13 features

in this issue, i think even though it is late, we can discuss jaws13
features, which FS should add.
according to me, one feature that jaws13 should have is that it should
allow us to select the list of textual errors in a list view, and then
select which one to edit. this becomes easier to edit our preffered
text.

Re: [Bulk] ITunes again

David:
So which do I delete. In my music folder under the Itunes folder, I have the
following:
Previous iTunes Libraries, iTunes Library Extras.itdb, iTunes Library
Genius.itdb, iTunes Music Library.xml and iTunes Library.itl?

Kimsan,

Stick with 10.3 and just delete the library file from your My Documents
folder. Mine was in the "My Music" subfolder.

ITunes will just create a new library file when you next launch it.

Loreal and Nickus are successful in using 10.4 on their systems with or
without the scripts, but most of the beta testers have had serious problems
with 10.4 and the latest scripts on Windows 7 in particular. That's why I'm
steering you away from that for now. Like me, you want to use ITunes, and
not test new script code.

From my Dell Latitude 630, currently not nearly close enough for my comfort
to my Audio Recording and Mixing Studios, San Francisco Bay Area. But I'll
try to remedy that situation.

Hi,

I uninstalled 10.4 and installed 10.3 along with the scrips that was sent to
me. Here's the message I get.

iTunes

The file "iTunes Library.itl" cannot be read because it was created by

a newer version of iTunes.

OK

What does that mean and what should I do?

Thanks.

Re: JAWS and Negativity

Steve <k8sp@...>
 

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...

a random jaws issue to do with MS Word

Kirsten Edmondson <kirsten.edmondson@...>
 

Hi,
I have noticed in the last few days that I have a random issue with Jaws
when I use the copy/paste/cut commands (control keys plus v c or x) within
MSWord 2007. I select my item, I press one of the above key strokes and then
I if I use the arrow keys or the home/end to get to a place to write again
my jaws won't talk, it takes a couple of seconds to re-establish itself. I
can't say it's linked to the recent J12 update (12.0.1170) which I did
earlier in the week though as I've only noticed it I guess it could be.
Sometimes it happens when I insert something too. Has anyone else noticed
this too? It doesn't seem to happen anywhere else, such as in my email
program, so I think it's just with word. It's getting irritating because I
have to wait for it before I can carry on typing, or risk mucking up my
document. I intend to report this to FS, so please let me know (even off
list, Kirsten.edmondson@...) if you have noticed similar so I can
say that when I report it.
Thanks.
Kirsten.


Re: Question on activation count

Steve <k8sp@...>
 

Nope, you don't get any more activations. The only time the older versions might make a difference is if you run out of upgrades, then you could use a newer version as a demo and use the older version permanently.

You are given a certain number of keys. You can use those across any number of computers, provided you only use one at a time.

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
