Re: screen resolution

Dave...
 

Screen resolution is no longer an issue, as was with older versions of JAWS.
Let your screen use the recommended resolution.\

Not a JAWS problem. Bear in mind that if you switch directions (Alt+Tab vs..
Shift+Alt+Tab) you need to consider the FIFO approach to the stacking of
open applications.

Hi,

In Jaws 12 and Windows 7, is there a problem with being able to tab back
and forth, from different applications?
It seems that on this particular laptop, Alt Tab does not allow you to
tab from application to application. Is this a known Jaws problem?
Thanks.

Regardless of left or right shoulder, you can get a Guide Dog trained to
work on your strong side at Guide Dogs for the Blind in San Rafael. Just let
them know if you need a dog trained to work on your right side.

Hello,
If you Google assistive technology jobs you come up with lots of jobs.
https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Assistive+Technology+Jobs+&oq=Assistiv
e+Technology+Jobs+&aq=f&aqi=g4g-v6&aql=&gs_sm=3&gs_upl=18963l19565l0l22661l2
l2l0l0l0l0l118l210l1.1l2l0

I would probably look for training before you start teaching people though.
That way you can talk to other professionals, see what the different jobs
are and see if that is something you really would like to do.
If I were you I'd get my hands on every piece of technology I could so you
can know what's out there. For some reason TVIs and much of the blind
community uses Pack mates or Braille Notes so those are kind of a cliché. I
would learn about all the other note takers and software's so you can show
people that the minority software is often much better than the heavily
advertised devices.

As for Jaws Tandem, explore the menu and see what pops up. It's under
Utility's in the menu bar. It tells you everything. But basically you get a
code from the tandem center and tell your target the code so they can write
it into the box that allows access to their computer.

Re: screen resolution

For what it's worth, I have a larger monitor than any of those
recommendations but have still always had trouble when I try going
above 1600x1200.

Hey Bill,

Thanks for the excellent list.

Are those generic recommendations (including sighted users), or are they

I've seen manufacturers provide monitor drivers that run at "preferred"
resolutions (laptop screen drivers can be particularly aggressive in
insisting on running at their "native" optimal resolution).

It may just be "lore" in the accessible tech community, but I heard a
consultant say that if one is having problems with JAWS, that changing to a
"standard" monitor resolution, or even using a monitor that has its "native"
resolution at 1280x1024 is "better".

Do you know if FS has any useful documentation on this issue?

Re: technology for the blind jobs

epierce@...
 

This is an AT training program at the California Community College system (100+ campuses), but it is only for INTERNAL training of existing employees:

http://www.htctu.net/about/involvement.htm

Looking at the various pages of the above web site will give you an idea of what working in AT in a college setting consists of.

If you are already studying computer science or similar, you might be able to get involved by interning/volunteering in a computer lab for disabled students, if there is such a thing at your college.

There are far more counseling and administrative jobs in the education-disability field than technical jobs as far as I can tell.

Many of the people I know in AT and education started as counselors or special education teachers, and then first developed expertise in AT as a personal interest, which they then used to get "tech" jobs in which they received additional specialized training paid for by the employer.

In some instances, a sighted tech first learned AT because they know someone that is blind or otherwise disabled.

HTH!

Hi Bill,

Are these recommended resolution settings by Freedom Scientific? It seems
like whenever I've asked FS for recommended resolution settings the response
is, play around & use the resolution that works best for you. Well, I
haven't had a resolution that works consistently except for the standard
1024 by 768. Have you used these settings & if so, how did they work for
you? I'm just trying to get some feedback on the different settings, not
challenge the settings you have provided. All feedback / information on

Re: Tabbing with JFW!

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Never heard of this problem. I too have Windows 7 and although I automatically load JAWS 13, the bugs are so severe that I almost always revert back to JAWS 12 before the day is done.
Remember that you can accomplish much the same thing with Alt-Tab with Insert F-10, which brings up a list of applications. Arrow through the list, and then hit ENTER on the window/application you want to switch to.
It isn't as good, but incase you didn't remember this option, I thought I'd mention it.
Truly, however, Alt-Tab should work. It does for me.

Re: off topic: guide dog question

Here we go again with the torrent of off-topic messages. Are the moderators absent again? In case some list members don't know, this is a list for the discussion of JAWS-related issues. Not guide dogs. Not jobs. Just JAWS. The nonsense that's tolerated on this list is unbelievable.

Anybody know of a guide dog user who has an artificial joint?
I may need a new shoulder, and hope this doesn't make me lose my wonderful
dog.
If anybody knows a different site I should post this question to, I am open
to suggestions.

Hello,
If you Google assistive technology jobs you come up with lots of jobs.
https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Assistive+Technology+Jobs+&oq=Assistiv
e+Technology+Jobs+&aq=f&aqi=g4g-v6&aql=&gs_sm=3&gs_upl=18963l19565l0l22661l2
l2l0l0l0l0l118l210l1.1l2l0

I would probably look for training before you start teaching people though.
That way you can talk to other professionals, see what the different jobs
are and see if that is something you really would like to do.
If I were you I'd get my hands on every piece of technology I could so you
can know what's out there. For some reason TVIs and much of the blind
community uses Pack mates or Braille Notes so those are kind of a cliché. I
would learn about all the other note takers and software's so you can show
people that the minority software is often much better than the heavily
advertised devices.

As for Jaws Tandem, explore the menu and see what pops up. It's under
Utility's in the menu bar. It tells you everything. But basically you get a
code from the tandem center and tell your target the code so they can write
it into the box that allows access to their computer.
Thanks,

How do you use Jaws Tandum? How does Jaws Tandum work? I am not looking to
tutor people but I was writing to find out what jobs there would be as a
Jaws tester and to learn more about the assistive technology field. Are
there many jobs with assistive technology, and whhat jobs are there in
assistive technology?

from state to state, country to country, and maybe employer to
employer. so, do some research.

Still, there's nothing stopping anybody here from tutoring people
privately, over Skype, or using something like Jaws Tandom.

Albert,
Have you checked JAWS Help for Tandem. Check the spelling. It's t a n d e m.

Learning about a wide variety of assistive technology will be most helpful if you decide to get into the assistive technology field. Learning to use the available Help in programs is a good first step.

Tabbing with JFW!

Claudia
 

Hi,

In Jaws 12 and Windows 7, is there a problem with being able to tab back and forth, from different applications?
It seems that on this particular laptop, Alt Tab does not allow you to tab from application to application. Is this a known Jaws problem?
Thanks.
