Re: Problem with read-by-line in Outlook 2007

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

It's what happens when you invoke a screen saver. As we deal with
sensitive data, we do an alt-ctrl-delete when we walk away; I guess I
should have used the word "lock" to describe the function.

Re: reference function of Excel

Dave...
 

There is no JAWS keystroke involved in reading that text. If you can read
the text on sheet1 with JAWS you should still be able to read the reference
text on sheet2. I think you need to enable reading formulas in JAWS to read
formulas.

Dear friends,

I am using jaws 12 and Excel 2003. When I use function of reference, I want
to read the texts appear on screen.

For example, in sheet1, cell b3 the text inside is “address”. I want the
text in cell b3 of sheet1 appears at cell f5 of sheet 2.
At cell f5, I type equal sign = then press ctrl+page up to sheet1. Then I
move arrow to b3. Jaws says sheet1!b3 but doesn’t say the text “address” in
b3. At that time, the text of sheet1 appears on cell f5 of sheet2. I can
read the text by invisible cursor.
My question is that if there is a keystroke for saying the text

Thank you very much and Best luck

Re: clear personalized web settings

Adrian Spratt
 

Bob,

The former personalized settings function either doesn't apply to JAWS 13 or
works differently. As you know, to personalize settings in the JAWS
adjustment dialogue, you used to add shift to the command.

However, JAWS automatically provides settings that are personal, or more
accurately specific, to individual Web pages. For example, it used to be
that when you entered a search term in the JAWS find function, it was
remembered as the default wherever you were on the Internet until you typed
in a new search term. Now when you type a search term in IE (I haven't used
Firefox enough to be sure), it is remembered only for the page you're on and
other pages in the same domain. This is true even days and many reboots
later.

Which personalized settings do you want to undo? I'm curious how you're
experiencing them in JAWS 13.

Hello,
I'm not the user of JAWS. Some of my customers use your product.
I'm a Delphi programmer (I'm using Delphi 5).

I would like to know how Jaws works with the programms written in Delphi 5. What are advices for programmers? Does Jaws speak hints for controls, labels, images, non-standard components? Please send me the example of Delphi project that you're recommending to use.

Many thanks in advance.


Re: Jaws stops talking after clicking some links

Dave...
 

Happens to me all the time. Usually JAWS will come back after taking a
breather for 20 to 40 seconds. Hang in there next time, and see if it does
come back on its own. I have no idea why it does this, but it does this 2 to
3 times during any given working day, and not only with Internet Explorer.
and so randomly that I can't possibly reproduce it for FS.

Re: Jaws stops talking after clicking some links

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

This can have a number of causes. One cause is that the link is bringing up an inordinate number of graphics. Another reason might be an incomplete load of a page.

One thing which works for me is: After waiting a reasonable amount of time, such as two minutes, press Insert+Escape to refresh the screen.

Re: braille display and jaws questions

Thanks Dave, but also isn't it weird why FS haven't just put a Seika
or Perkins option? I mean, the displays have been around for a little?
I'm also curious, do you guys think the reason why its cheaper, does
it maybe use some sort of patented technology or different way of
manufacturing a display? I think labour costs are cheaper in Japan,
but still? When I do eventually see it I'll let everyone know what its
like.

still write your replies on the list or you can write privately to me.
First part, you guys have maybe heard that the new Seika braille
displays, both the version 5 and the mini with the keyboard (for
American readers I think it is called the Perkins display?) can be
connected by bluetooth. In jaws, if you want to connect a Seika, you
apparrently choose the option for powerbraille. The thing is, as far
as I can see, the powerbraille is a usb display only, so how do you
guys think I must connect the Seika 5 if I want to use bluetooth, is
there a way? My next question is, if you have used one, can you guys
please give me some thoughts or opinions about this display? I am
specifically talking about whether you have had any quality issues or
problems, or if you think its the greatest thing that's happened for a
long time. It is just that a person does want to know when the display
is so much cheaper than the European and American models.
Thanks
Ari

Re: braille display and jaws questions

Dave...
 

Not having any direct experience with the Braille displays, but some with
Bluetooth, I suspect that the PowerBraille choice may still work as long as
you've already paired the display via Bluetooth. But that's just a
guess/surmise.

This sounds like a great question for FS Tech Support at
