Re: copying to clip board

Brian Buhrow <buhrow@...>
 

hello. Can you do a control-a control-c
to capture the entire contents of the window and then dump that into
notepad using control-v to edit the results into what you want?
Not exactly elegant, but perhaps functional.

copying to clip board

John Miller
 

Hello,
My name is John Miller. I am new to this list.
When I am at the Matlab command window, I can see text using the JAWS
cursor.
I want to copy to clip board the text near the JAWS cursor.
Any tips on how to do this?
Any direction to where to find documentation in JAWS help would also be
welcome.
Unfortunately the application does not allow moving to the text with the
arrow keys and highlighting it with SHIFT+Down Arrow as might be done in
Notepad.
Thank you.
-John

It also works fairly well with certain more or less graphical

Press insert+space then O for OCR. Then you decide whether you want

This doesn't take the place of using a dedicated OCR program to
deal with these situations, such as K1000, Openbook, Omnipage,

Re: Reading spaces in a Word Doc

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

One thing you'll notice about Text Analyzer; it should be called "Line
Analyzer," rather like the stone-age text editor, Edlin. For instance,
if you enclose a phrase in parentheses, and that phrase extends past a
line brake, Analyzer will report it as an error. It sees only one
parenthesis at a time, not realizing they're a matched set.

If you are doing serious proof-reading, text analyzer can be pretty
useful, particularly if you typically do not add two spaces at the end
of sentences.
You can find out about text analyzer by pressing Insert and the number 6
on the top row of keys on your keyboard.
That will put you in a search box. Type in the word "text" and hit
return.
You will get a list. Actually, you could have typed in "Text Analyzer"
to go straight to Text Analyzer, but I thought seeing all the text
processing options might be useful for someone who is jumping from JAWS
8 to 13.
When you get to Text Analyzer, press right arrow to open up the options.
It can be turned off entirely (which is the default setting), or you can
turn it on to beep on lines with problems, announce the number of
problems, or actually tell you the problems.
For instance, it can say "font change at column ___" or "run of spaces
at column ____" or "quote mismatch" and so on.
The run of spaces is very useful for identifying places where there are
too many spaces; however, if you are in the habit of placing (or are
required to
place) two spaces after a period, text analyzer isn't smart enough to
have that feature turned on and off.
Also, when searching for revisions in a document, the "next" feature is
pretty slick, though not on the tool bar.
I have created my own hotkey in Word so that alt plus shift plus R jumps
to the next revision and alt plus shift plus shift plus P jumps back to
the previous revision.
It works better than the revisions tracking feature in JAWS.
If you are looking for track changes in a document another technique is
to turn on those quick keys with insert plus z.
Then, you can jump from revision to revision simply with a press of the
letter "r".

Re: Reading spaces in a Word Doc

Hi Dave
I thought about that, but I want two spaces between asentances. I did think
about doing as you say, and then coming back and looking for a period and
one space and replace it with a period and two spaces. But that would leave
two spaces after each paragraph, and that would not hurt anything.

Rather than trying to find those double spaces manually, just do this:

Ctrl+H for search and replace
2. Type two spaces in the find field.
3. Tab and type a single space in the replace field.
4. Alt+a to find and replace all.
5. Press Enter on okay when it's done, and press Alt+A again to find any
more (you might have some triple-spaces or more that need trimming.
6. Repeat until zero occurrences are found.
7. Escape out of the dialog.

Re: Some Questions on new OCR component of Jaws 13

Soronel Haetir
 

To use the convenient OCR, you do need to use commands.

First maximize your adobe window, preferably in single page mode.

Next trigger the OCR by typing jaws+space, o, w

You can then use the up and down arrow keys, page up and page down
keys. Most other navigation does not work (move by word for example).

To OCR the next page you have to manually move adobe to that page and
re-issue the ocr commands, it works on a screen basis not a document
basis.

If you do a Google search for

"OneNote 2010 From The Keyboard"

you will find a free book in PDF format that explains how to use OneNote
with assistive technology. I just read through part of the book, enough to
figure out that I didn't really need OneNote. It seems to be primarily
designed for students who need to take lecture notes. My student days are
long over.

The book explains the structure of the program and gives shortcuts for
navigation. OneNote should be accessible with both JAWS and Window Eyes.

Re: No OCR function in thumb drive version of JAWS 13?

Not sure it can be used with the thumb drive version. But there is a
separate install file needed for Convenient OCR, if you have a full
installation where it didn't properly install.

Look on the download site for this.

Re: Reading spaces in a Word Doc

Adrian Spratt
 

Dave and Beamer,

One obvious warning is to be sure ahead of time that there aren't places in
your document where you've deliberately placed several consecutive spaces.
For example, one convention for inserting a break in text is to use three
centered asterisks separated by a specified number of spaces. In these
cases, I substitute another series of symbols, such as three number signs,
in the places where I want to retain multiple spaces. After I've done my
search and replace for the unwanted spaces, I do a new search for the three
number signs and replace them with the desired spaces.

That said, I suggest starting out by a search for three spaces to be
replaced by one space. With this one step, you eliminate all odd-numbered
instances of space other than the single space. It also reduces the number
of times you need to repeat the search for double spaces.

Oh, I forgot about that hassle with Jaws always reverting to the top of the

make sense. It's been a while. Thanks for your earlier message on the quick

You are right. My problem is that my documents are so large and have so

JAWS doesn't remember where you were Thus, if you have 40 changes in a 30

I turned on the things that Ed suggested, but I also used the Jaws command

you press enter on an item, it takes you directly to that place, and you can
examine it, and then choose from the right click or context menu to accept
the change or not.

Re: Reading spaces in a Word Doc

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

If you are doing serious proof-reading, text analyzer can be pretty useful, particularly if you typically do not add two spaces at the end of sentences.
You can find out about text analyzer by pressing Insert and the number 6 on the top row of keys on your keyboard.
That will put you in a search box. Type in the word "text" and hit return.
You will get a list. Actually, you could have typed in "Text Analyzer" to go straight to Text Analyzer, but I thought seeing all the text processing options might be useful for someone who is jumping from JAWS 8 to 13.
When you get to Text Analyzer, press right arrow to open up the options. It can be turned off entirely (which is the default setting), or you can turn it on to beep on lines with problems, announce the number of problems, or actually tell you the problems.
For instance, it can say "font change at column ___" or "run of spaces at column ____" or "quote mismatch" and so on.
The run of spaces is very useful for identifying places where there are too many spaces; however, if you are in the habit of placing (or are required to place) two spaces after a period, text analyzer isn't smart enough to have that feature turned on and off.
Also, when searching for revisions in a document, the "next" feature is pretty slick, though not on the tool bar.
I have created my own hotkey in Word so that alt plus shift plus R jumps to the next revision and alt plus shift plus shift plus P jumps back to the previous revision.
It works better than the revisions tracking feature in JAWS.
If you are looking for track changes in a document another technique is to turn on those quick keys with insert plus z.
Then, you can jump from revision to revision simply with a press of the letter "r".

Hi JAWS Users
Does JAWS have the ability to read the spaces in a Word document?
I am using W7 and Word 2007.
I am proof reading a long document, and sometimes I will hit the space bar
twice, so I want to fix this in the document.
John

Track changes for Lee Anne

Jean Menzies <jemenzies@...>
 

Lee Anne, and anyone else trying to better work with track changes.

I turned on the things that Ed suggested, but I also used the Jaws command of insert-shift-R to list all document revisions. It brought up a list. When you press enter on an item, it takes you directly to that place, and you can examine it, and then choose from the right click or context menu to accept the change or not.

No real need to worry about the colors.

Jean

Re: Reading spaces in a Word Doc

Dave...
 

John,

Rather than trying to find those double spaces manually, just do this:

Ctrl+H for search and replace
2. Type two spaces in the find field.
3. Tab and type a single space in the replace field.
4. Alt+a to find and replace all.
5. Press Enter on okay when it's done, and press Alt+A again to find any
more (you might have some triple-spaces or more that need trimming.
6. Repeat until zero occurrences are found.
7. Escape out of the dialog.
