Re: Mouse Over

Dave Mitchell
 

Thank you Matthew for your detailed and instructive steps for solving this specific problem.
For me, this confirms my observation that the new Settings Center is a giant step backwards.
I am an average but long time JAWS user and, rhetorically, I ask how any casual user of the increasingly complex powerhouse of JAWS 13 is to learn these kind of commands. It's early here so I hope some of you understand my lament. Mitch

over, on websites. I don't use it and am having difficulty getting it
ignored by Jaws."

The most effective way of doing this without interfering with anything else
is to disable the speaking of OnMouseOvers in the Speech & Sounds Manager
for the currently active scheme. Here's how:

1. Press JAWSKey+6 to invoke the 'Settings Centre'.

2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the 'Default' file.

3. The 'Search' box will have focus. Type "modify" (without the quotes) and
wait a few seconds.

4. Press DownArrow once. JAWS should announce that you are on 'Modify
Schemes...'

5. Press the SPACEBAR.

6. You will now be presented with a dialog prompting you to select the
scheme you wish to modify. The currently active scheme will be selected by
default. Press ALT+E for the 'Edit Selected Scheme' button.

7. Press CTRL+TAB eight times to land on the 'HTML Attributes' page.

8. You should be on a list of attributes. Press O twice to move to
'OnMouseOver'.

9. Press ALT+I to move to, and check, the 'Ignore' radio button.

10. Press ENTER four times to confirm your changes, answering 'Yes' to any
dialog boxes which appear.

11. Press ALT+F4 to exit the 'Settings Centre'.

12. You should be asked if you wish to save your changes - answer 'Yes'.

Hope this helps,
Matthew

On Mouse over

Lois
 

Thank you for your reply concerning my problem turning off mouse over in kjaws 13.
The route you describe doesn't work. The setting center has become kquite complex and I'm having difficulty finding my way in it although I[m working on the tutorial on it. I'll keep trying. I think I'm not saving my setting somehow; although the instruction sounded simple enough

There is also specifically an OnMouseOver element in the speech and
cound scheme manager and ignore is one of the options there. I don't
have a website it onmouseovers handy to try it on though.

Ann,

Ed mentioned OmniPage, and others alluded to it. Compared to Kurzweil and
Openbook, it is pretty inexpensive. At the company's website, it is listed
at $149, but you can probably get it cheaper via Google. I find the program
both easy to use and quick to convert. It also saves me from dependence on a
third party.

Re: sharing documents via facebook.

Hey Dave,
Thanks for pointing that out. If the policy of the list doesn’t allow us to discuss anything except Jaws, then I’ll keep that in mind for future. I wasn’t aware of the same.
But for now, I’ll be highly obliged if any lister can help me out in cracking this problem, though off the list keeping the guidelines of the list in mind.
At the outset, I apologize for posting contrary to the list guidelines; I had no intention of violating the guidelines, I wasn’t aware of this guideline.
Thanks Dave once again for pointing that out.

Re: pdf's with JAWS--is there still a place to e-mail a pdf image for OCR?

Convenient OCR reads the current page, but not the whole document. For myself I use OpenBook, because I have it. My student, however, does not have an OCR program, so I'm looking for alternatives.

Don't have an answer to your question, but have you tried JAWS13, or have a
license for it? The convenient OCR feature sounds like what you need to read
the pages.

However if you need to generate a text file of the document, then you're
back to your original question, since I presume you don't have Openbook or a
similar OCR program on your PC.

Re: pdf's with JAWS--is there still a place to e-mail a pdf image for OCR?

Soronel Haetir
 

I've now used the convenient OCR on a few scanned PDFs and it
generally works pretty well. Not as good as the sort of product(s) Ed
mentions (the convenient OCR can only do whatever is actually
on-screen where a real OCR package can do the entire file in one go),
but if this sort of thing is only incidental for you then the new jaws
feature may well be more than enough.

the document. One has an option to interpret from a scanner or from a file.
There is a companion product called PDF Converter which operates as an
Outlook plug-in. It works pretty well.
I know there is something called VizWhiz (sp?) where iPhone users can get
sighted help. I've heard of some people taking a picture of the computer's
screen and sending it to VizWhiz for interpretation. I've never tried that
personally.

When JAWS reports "empty document', is there a place to e-mail it for
interpretation?

thanks,

Ann

Ann,


Don't have an answer to your question, but have you tried JAWS13, or have a
license for it? The convenient OCR feature sounds like what you need to read
the pages.

However if you need to generate a text file of the document, then you're
back to your original question, since I presume you don't have Openbook or a
similar OCR program on your PC.

The JAWS13 OCR does only a single screen. there used to be a place, maybe pdf2txt@somewhere, that would convert a pdf to text. I assume even an image, but I don't know.

Yes, you can. Please mail to convert@robobraille.org. You may also visit for more information to their site: www.robobraille.org. They convert the document in a variety of formats. I tried just last Wednesday quite successfully. There were minor errors but it was quite tolerable.

Thank you.

Ketan
