JAWS with Family Tree Maker

Paul Bolduc
 

Good morning,

Is there anybody using FTM with JAWS? I have version 9 and do not know
which version of FTM. I am considering buying the latest version of FTM,
but wish to know if it's compatible with JAWS 9.

I also would appreciate any help in getting started, not with my family tree
as I only plan to add to it since I have a file that goes back to the 1500's
with authentication papers to back it up.

Thank you,

Have a great day,

Paul Bolduc

Re: JAWS saying the thing that is not

Dorothy <dorothy.ingram-gorban@...>
 

Yes of course you are right it was a turn of phrase. In my case a good
while ago, I had to get to the bottom of the problem, It was actually
diagnosed by a young man doing research name was Will pearson, I do not
know where will is now. But it was confirmed only when unable to bear any
more I recorded everything and as I have said before I sent it all to Dr Lee
Hamilton at st Petersberg., why dr Hamilton? I was sent an email by a
sighted friend saying"bigwigs at Fs and I read their cv and he seemed
clever. I rang in advance and spoke to his Pa,her name was Grace, she told
me how to address the package and she personally would see dr Hamilton got
it. Well after a while I had a phone call from Bryan carver director of
technical support. He told me "you are right we ran tests and replicated all
the problems you had. I asked when will you fix it please? He said I fear
we cannot,reason it could not be fixed by a script, if that were possible
the script writer at the vendors office in uk could have done it. Then
another friend thought of another product that would run with jaws and not
upset it,that was Lunar not an fs product.. He was right Magic? No magic
made it worse. However I was by that time determined if they would not could
not fix it to get a work a round myself a Local engineer just a mainstream
engineer said,he had once worked for a firm of electronics, the company had
shut down,he said I will make you a box to invert the screen, it would not
interfere with jaws and have a switch that switch couldbe just pushed up and
the screen be inverted,so I would have black screen and white font. We
called it a "switching box", trouble is time went buy and I could not get to
see a prototype, he said he was having problems with three of the colours
and couldnot eliminate a large amount of white around the screen He
mentioned 3 colours I think he said Hexadecimals. In the end I realised he
was not able to admit defeat and got the dolphin Lunar. No I am not mad I
just was cross at the time since getting the problem aired was too hard if
the problem had been admitted by vendor,and I not blamed I would have just
acceptedit.. dorothy

It looks as if this might be a focus problem with JAWS. The only thing I
have experienced is that JAWS will read the title of a email message even
after I had deleted it. Secondly JAWS will inform me that there is an
update but when I go to look for what that update is, it isn't there!

Ann,

Using JAWS 12.0.525 regularly and occasionally testing JAWS 13.0.171. XP Pro

32-bit.

To varying degrees I've also heard the reporting of the wrong line in
documents. I've not noticed the announcement of a previous application when
launching a new one, however.

but I can agree that depending on the context, a number might get the th or
rd added when reading line-by-line or in say all. It tends to happen when
the preceding word is interpreted as a month or its abbreviation. Never
could figure out how to turn that off.

And of course also being a long-time JAWS user I've learned to ignore these
quirks. But I can understand how a new student would be confused is the
speech were not as accurate as it should be.
Good points to bring up to Freedom Scientific.

Subject: JAWS saying the thing that is not


Maybe I'm just getting cranky---a definite possibility--but I find
myself saying more and more often to my students, "JAWS is lying to you."

1. When opening a new document or application, JAWS often rereads
the previous screen before reading the screen it just opened. To a
newby, this is way confusing.

2. When reading dates, JAWS speaks a 'th' or 'st' or 'rd' after the
date, even though it isn't there. It is important to me to know what
I wrote, not what JAWS thinks I want to hear.

3. When working with an outline in Word 2010, JAWS often but not
consistently reports the line I just pressed enter on, and not the
new line with the outline number. So when I'm planning a party--my
favorite outline--it says "2. send invitations' and not '3', which is
where the cursor is.

I don't think I'm imagining this. Is anyone else having these kinds
of issues???

thanks.

Ann

rd added when reading line-by-line or in say all. It tends to happen when
the preceding word is interpreted as a month or its abbreviation. Never
could figure out how to turn that off.

And of course also being a long-time JAWS user I've learned to ignore these
quirks. But I can understand how a new student would be confused is the
speech were not as accurate as it should be.
Good points to bring up to Freedom Scientific.

Maybe I'm just getting cranky---a definite possibility--but I find
myself saying more and more often to my students, "JAWS is lying to you."

1. When opening a new document or application, JAWS often rereads
the previous screen before reading the screen it just opened. To a
newby, this is way confusing.

2. When reading dates, JAWS speaks a 'th' or 'st' or 'rd' after the
date, even though it isn't there. It is important to me to know what
I wrote, not what JAWS thinks I want to hear.

3. When working with an outline in Word 2010, JAWS often but not
consistently reports the line I just pressed enter on, and not the
new line with the outline number. So when I'm planning a party--my
favorite outline--it says "2. send invitations' and not '3', which is
where the cursor is.

I don't think I'm imagining this. Is anyone else having these kinds
of issues???

thanks.

Re: JAWS saying the thing that is not

Adrian Spratt
 

Dave and Ann,

Responding to the education angle, I imagine that compounding the problem
is that JAWS's quirks vary from machine to machine. I am not a teacher by
profession, but I have taught a few people how to use JAWS. Fortunately, one
has none of the problems with her machine mentioned in this thread, while
another's has problems I don't. So you have to be aware that the student may
not be making a mistake and that, instead, JAWS is making it for him/her. Or
else you second-guess yourself and figure maybe JAWS is making the mistake
when, in fact, it's the student.

Re: JAWS saying the thing that is not

Adrian Spratt
 

Cy, what interests me here is that you're having this problem with the last
release of JAWS 11. I did experience it with earlier releases of that
version, but hardly ever, if at all, with this one. Hence my frustration
when I find it all over again in JAWS 12, last release, when I finally, um,
upgraded.

Once JAWS gets it into its head that it's supposed to repeat a message, it
keeps doing so even when I open other messages. Sometimes switching to
another folder and then back into my inbox unsticks it. Sometimes I have to
unload JAWS and bring it up again. Time-consuming and distracting. So I keep
going back to that release of JAWS 11 after starting with 12. I'm sorry it
hasn't had the same salutary effect for you.

Hi,
I am using JAWS 11, latest version on both my W7 laptop and my Dell XP
machine.
I have noticed that, when going through my email, JAWS will occasionally not
read the one I have just opened but rather the last one I read. I have found
that one must be *extremely* careful as what JAWS is reading may *NOT* be a
duplicate. (LOLLLOLLOL) This combined with Yahoogroups habit of sending
duplicates causes some confusion. (LOLLLOLLOL) Cy

Your first point, JFW reading some part of a previous screen, I've thought
of as the "flush" problem - it's very annoying. I've noticed it only
sometime in the last few versions.
It seems there's a buffer that isn't being reset as JFW switches between
environments.

Yes if they listen of course, a teacher should not have to point out to her
students that the product tends to lie! regards dorothy
