Re: removal of old JAWS

I did leave common files, thinking that my newer version of jaws (11) might need some of it. The machine won't go into real safe mode where I can get a system resonre. My plan of action is outlined in a previous message. Let me know if you think it might be the wrong thing to do. Thanks.

You're probably right about the hardware issue but I would try starting the
computer in safe mode to begin with then doing a system restore to an
earlier point. If I were able to restart in safe mode and uninstalled Jaws
again, I would be sure when running the uninstall program not to uninstall
common files. I did uninstall common files a few years ago and this is the
procedure I followed to get things working again. Now, I do as Freedom
recommends and leave my common files intact.

The boot partition, or some related structure, may need to be repaired.

It would probably be a very good idea to run hardware diagnostics,
preferably a pre-boot diagnostic program (ask the vendor/manufacturer).

Unfortunately you may need to have a sighted technician do these maintenance
functions.

Worst case: you may need to replace the hard drive and/or reformat and
reintall windows xp.

Once "last chance" option would be to do a "repair reinstall" of windows xp.

A "repair reinstall" overwrites the existing "system files" only for windows
xp, without upsetting the user data files.

If you have an underlying hardware problem, you can fix the computer, but
the problem is likely to reappear sooner or later, probably sooner.

That is why it is almost always best to start trouble shooting with hardware
diagnostics.

Hi all,

Using Windows XP Pro and JAWS 11. Removed old JAWS (7). Windows said
the machine had to be restarted. I let it happen and now windows don't
come up at all. The drive keeps starting and shutting down.
Continuously at about
4 minute intervals.

Any ideas, please.

Re: removal of old JAWS

Howard Traxler <howard@...>
 

Thanks for your thoughts on my situation. You may have thoughts on this also:

When the machine is trying to boot, I get the menu that says I can boot to safe mode or start windows normally. Of course, if I don't make a choice, it trys to start normally and starts the continuous cycle. If I choose safe mode, it comes up (not really in safe mode), but with a screen full of file names that don't mean much to me.

I was thinking about like you: Something wrong with the boot record or something similar. So I put in the windows cd thinking there is a windows repair function on there. But the cd drive won't read it. It get into checking the system and stops with telling me that some file is corrupt and some other file is missing. Now I'm thinking, in addition to my main problem, the cd drive is flakey. So I brought the CD to a machine that I know is working and it seems to be OK--though there doesn't seem to be a repair tool on there--at least not in the menus. So I found another drive that I'm gonna try; just haven't got to it yet. When I do, if it will read the CD, I think I'll install windows over itself. That'll maybe get me bye until I can get another hard drive in there.

Does all this make sense to you?

Thanks.

Howard

Hey David H.,

Thanks for your excellent offer of professional service.

Would We Have Drugged Up Einstein? How Anti-Authoritarianism Is Deemed a Mental Health Problem
By Bruce E. Levine, AlterNet
Posted on February 20, 2012, Printed on May 2, 2012

In my career as a psychologist, I have talked with hundreds of people previously diagnosed by other professionals with oppositional defiant disorder, attention deficit hyperactive disorder, anxiety disorder and other psychiatric illnesses, and I am struck by 1) how many of those diagnosed are essentially anti-authoritarians; and 2) how those professionals who have diagnosed them are not.

Anti-authoritarians question whether an authority is a legitimate one before taking that authority seriously. Evaluating the legitimacy of authorities includes assessing whether or not authorities actually know what they are talking about, are honest, and care about those people who are respecting their authority. And when anti-authoritarians assess an authority to be illegitimate, they challenge and resist that authority—sometimes aggressively and sometimes passive-aggressively, sometimes wisely and sometimes not.

Some activists lament how few anti-authoritarians there appear to be in the United States. One reason could be that many natural anti-authoritarians are now psychopathologized and medicated before they achieve political consciousness of society’s most oppressive authorities.

Subject: Re: J13 & Personalized Settings For Websites

Hi All,

I found the answer to my question. Here is the info I found;

Personalized Web Settings

Personalized web settings allow you to make changes to JAWS that affect
only a specific web site. JAWS remembers these settings and loads them
each time you visit the web site again.



Personalized web settings apply to any page under the domain or
subdomain where you make the changes. For example, if you opened the
page www.freedomscientific.com/fs_news/index.asp and personalized the
page, changes would apply to any page under www.freedomscientific.com.
However, if you made changes somewhere on shopping.yahoo.com, those
settings would not apply to a page such as mail.yahoo.com because the
subdomain is different.
JAWS informs you when you open a page which has personalized settings,
unless you go to another page on the same web site.



To create or modify personalized settings for a web page, press
SHIFT+INSERT+V while in an HTML document. This dialog works just like
SHIFT+INSERT+the
Quick Settings dialog, except that changes made here are saved
permanently and do not apply to other web pages. Press SPACEBAR on any
item to cycle between the available options. When you are finished,
press ENTER to save the settings. Select "Personalized Settings - All
Cleared" and press the SPACEBAR to clear all personalized settings for
this web site.



Note: There are several options that are only available in the
Personalized Settings dialog box. For more information on these options,
see Changing Line and Nonlink Text Length.



There may be some situations where these settings do not work, due to
the dynamic nature of the web. For example, if you change a setting
using the regular INSERT+V option, the setting will not be saved in your
personal files. The SHIFT+INSERT+V dialog will show the settings from
the personal file. This dialog always checks for personalized web site
settings first, whereas INSERT+V just displays the settings currently in
use.



Remember that the two dialogs can show different settings.
SHIFT+INSERT+V displays the settings for the web site or domain.
INSERT+V displays only the settings currently in use and updates the
template of non-personalized settings stored in memory.



Technical Notes:

All files are named .jsi, such as: Microsoft.com.jsi The last option in
Quick Settings labeled "Personal Settings" can clear all entries. These
.jsi files are stored in the C:\Documents and Settings\User
Name\Application Data\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\X (where X is the JAWS
version number)\Settings\Enu folder and can be shared with others.



Sharing Personalized Web Settings

You can use Settings Packager to share your personalized settings for a
Web site with other JAWS users. Settings Packager is a program that lets
you save speech and sound schemes, PlaceMarkers, and personalized Web
settings in a compressed .zip file that you can send in an e-mail
message, post on a Web site, or copy to removable storage media. You can
also use Settings Packager to import the settings contained in these
.zip files into JAWS. To start Settings Packager, press INSERT+F2,
select "Settings Packager," and press ENTER. For more information on
using this program, open the Settings Packager Help menu and choose Help
Topics.



Changing Line and Nonlink Text Length

There are four options in the Personalized Settings dialog box that do
not appear in Quick Settings (INSERT+V).



The Increase and Decrease Line Length options allow you to change the
number of characters that JAWS recognizes as a line of text in the
Virtual Buffer.
The default is 150 characters. Select Increase Line Length and press the
SPACEBAR to increment this value, or select Decrease Line Length and
press the SPACEBAR to reduce this value.



The Increase and Decrease Nonlink Text options allow you to change the
amount of text that must be found beyond the next link when you press
the navigation quick key N. The default is 25 characters. Select
Increase Nonlink Text and press the SPACEBAR to increment this value, or
select Decrease Nonlink Text and press the SPACEBAR to reduce this
value.

Hello:

I have never used quickbooks. I hear its not accessible but others have told
me its accessible for the most part.

I know John Martin stated there will be scripts available for quickbooks
soon (don't quote me on that) but I think he said that.

So, what problems are folks having with quickbooks? Remember, I never used
the program before, so hopefully explinations will be sort of understandable
from my end smile.

Thanks.

Re: excel 2010 and jaws keyboard command

Ann Byrne
 

another way to set column and row titles is to place your cursor on the row you want to be the header, and re-e-e-e-e-e-eally stretch, pressing insert+control+alt+c. To set row headers with a single (multiple?) keystroke, place your cursor in the column containing the row header, and press insert+control+alt+r. If you can figure out how to do it with only ten fingers, it's rather convenient.

At 02:55 PM 5/2/2012, you wrote:
Go to where your headers begin. Go into Quick Settings, and start
scrolling until you hit "Column titles for row, set undefined," hit the
space bar. Scroll down one more, and you'll see "row columns to title,
set undefined. Tap the space bar again, and tat to and enter OK. Now
as you move around your sheet, you'll always know where you are.
Incidentally, when you hit the spacebar, the new definition reads aloud,
so you'll know if it's what you want. This is not a global, and must be
done sheet-by-sheet, as needed.

You could always assign another keystroke for it as well.
Personal preference, though.

Hello there;

It used to be,
You could turn off the top&bottom alerts manually, and they would be gone
for good,
You did this through the explore my settings,/shared settings,
And then, default JCF,
And open in notepad,
Then find the top and bottom, and set to zero.
However, this no longer works in the later versions.
I to turned off the dam thing,
And it still persists.
So, I did an uninstall,
Did a clean install, well, hallelujah it's gone.

JAWS gives you the option of making a sound to alert you to the top or
bottom of a message or document. On my system, it doesn't sound like a
chime; more like a bump in the night. But in case it's what you're hearing,
open up the quick settings dialog with JAWS key+v and then arrow down until
you reach "top and bottom alert." If JAWS extends that phrase by "with
sound," press the spacebar to silence it. Then press enter to confirm your
choice and exit the dialog. Make sure you have the affected application open
when you go through this process.

You're a new user, so I'll add that by JAWS key," we mean the insert key on
the numpad when you're using the PC keyboard layout. On a laptop, this key
is the caps lock.

Hey guys, I'm new to the mailing list, and had a quick question...

First I'll tell ya what I'm running. I have jaws 13, with windows 7, and
IE9

Ok, on my outlook email, and Microsoft word, when I arrow up at the top of
the document, I get this chime, and if there is something there that jaws
needs to read that chime happens at the same time and it's hard to hear what
jaws is saying.

I'm not sure if this is a jaws sound or a windows sound, I went through the
sound schemes for jaws and windows, but didn't know what to look for to turn
it off.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Re: excel 2010 and jaws keyboard command

Danny wells
 

You will need to change the key assignment for this function to make it much
easier to perform. First, while in an open excel work sheet press insert +
f2. Second, press K for keyboard manager, then hit enter. Third, you
should hear Excel announced. If so, then tab once. This will bring up a
list of functions along with key strokes. Fourth, arrow down to "column 1
announcement or something to that effect. You may press c until you reach
that selection. Fifth, press control h to change the key stroke. I use
control shift 1 to speak the content of the first cell of that column. When
you have made the change, tab down twice, and press enter on ok. It will
ask you to confirm the change. Just press enter. Do the same to speak the
contents of each of the top 4 cells of a column. Remember you can get good
instructions and hehlpful info while in the keyboard manager by pressing
insert f1.


I hope this helps!

Danny

Re: jfw scripts

If you find the book daunting, try:
http://www.freedomscientific.com/PDF/visionloss/manuals/ScriptManual/01-0_Introduction.htm
After reading the scripting manual and doing the practice lessons, you may move on to that daunting book.
Or you may get as much info as you need from the manual.

Hi,

Ok, I am no jfw scripter so I need help.

I read part of this book called everything you need to know about jfw
scripts but didn't know who to ask.

So, in this book it talked about creating a basic and real easy script in
notepad to say your name in notepad.



Here's my issue and I don't know how to fix it.

In the book, it said to assign the keystroke CTRL shift N for the keystroke.
Now its saying unknown script called to: say name when I press that
keystroke.

I am pretty much trying to undo everything I did lol. How do I fix this
issue? How do I get it not to say unknown script called to: everytime I
press CTRL shift n?



Thanks.
