Hi, if you bring the rtf into word you can highlight the document and apply a basic style such as the "normal" style. This should stop the chatter unless there is other formatting that you want to hear.

Hi, Kirsten.

I tried the RTF option yesterday, and, although the text was there and in
the correct order as you suggest, Jaws kept reading heading information at
the beginning of just about every line, which made reading and understanding
the text very difficult.

If you open the powerpoint and then go to the save dialog box, tab to the
type/format box and arrow down you should be able to save it as an RTF doc
which will give you all the text from all the slides in the right order.
Before I discovered this I used to have to copy and paste the text out of
the slides, but this is much quicker. I use 2007 so if that is what you
have
it definitely works.

Hi, everyone.

Can someone tell me the easiest way to extract and save the text from the
slides in a powerpoint presentation?

I have a powerpoint presentation here from work, and all I need is the
text
content for future reference.

As best as I can tell, the presentation is done in Office 2007 powerpoint
format.

Thanks!

Re: Extracting text from powerpoint presentation

Adrian Spratt
 

Tom, I have no experience with PowerPoint, but can't you copy the RTF text,
whether directly or after going into virtual window mode with JAWS
key-alt-w? Then you could eliminate the "heading" verbalization.

As for finding Jamal's Text Pal, there's always google.

Tom Behler here again.

I tried the F6 suggestion, and get the following options:

Notes page pane; slide thumbnails tab; and slide area.

I find no mention of an outline option.

Again, I think this was done in powerpoint 2007, if that makes any difference.

Yes. AS I remember someone on this list had posted some media center

installed the software on both a ACER XP Netbook and DELL VISTA Desktop
computer. It worked very well on both. On the netbook I USED THE TUNER

Re: Eudora 7.1.0.9 Download Link

Ben Humphreys <brh@...>
 

To the best of my recollection, Eudora supported three modes of operation: a slightly crippled light mode, a more functional sponsored mode with ads, and a full mode which cost money but was free of ads and contained all functionality.

To enable full mode, click "Payment and registration" on the Help menu and from there you can enter a registration code to unlock the full mode.

When Qualcom discontinued Eudora development, they released a generic registration code, provided below, to unlock full mode without payment.

Paul,
I have had no experience with the unlock procedure but have installed Eudora on a number of computers. It has always worked for me! I've not taken any of the extra things that are offered and I have wound up with a working Eudora with a short cut on the desktop. So you would likely be okay with the installation. And great for a person's self confidence.

Hello Ben and all,

I would regard myself as a computing beginner in many ways, so please forgive me if this sounds rather simple. I have 2 questions:

1. Does the link given for Eudora below, download the program to the Desktop, to be installed later, or does the link initiate the installation process? My reason for asking is, that if it is the latter, and something goes wrong, I have to wait quite some time before sighted assistance can rescue matters. My one and only previous attempt to install a program failed badly, causing total laptop failure, which sighted help eventually put right.

2. What does the phrase, "unlock the full mode", mean, and as this sounds like action must be taken, can you outline the stepsplease?

Bill,

While Eudora lives on in open-source, the last version produced by
Qualcom is Eudora 7.1.0.9 and that version is very accessible with
JAWS, something that I do not believe is true of the newer
open-source versions.

Happily, Eudora 7.1.0.9 works fine with Windows 7 and Qualcom has
graciously provided the following code to unlock the full mode without cost:

RegFirstNamePro= Paid_Mode_No_Support
RegLastNamePro=Without_X1_Search

Re: calcuator

Ben Humphreys <brh@...>
 

It's a valid JAWS question because much of the functionality of the calculator is locked away behind mouse clickable buttons on the display. Fortunately, there are about 90 keyboard shortcuts available to overcome this problem.

See the following article on how to locate these keyboard shortcuts

http://superuser.com/questions/274264/windows-calculator-shortcut-keys

Briefly, hitF1, tab to Shortcut Keys and hit Enter, then tab around until you get to the windows calculator shortcut keys, which contains a table of 2 columns by 90 rows, at least in Windows 7 help.

Re: safe mode

David <davidwhitehead1957@...>
 

Hello there;

I just want you to no,

Working in safe mode, with MSOutlook, is way different then working in safe
mode, from boot up.

MSOutlook, will ask you, if you want to work in safe mode, especially, if
there has been an issue with the outlook files.
Generally, if you say yes to work in safe mode, outlook will perform
correctly.

However, if you close outlook, and restart the program, outlook will
Go back to working correctly.
However, working in safe mode from boot up, is way different, you have no
speech, no drivers are loaded.

If you open the powerpoint and then go to the save dialog box, tab to the
type/format box and arrow down you should be able to save it as an RTF doc
which will give you all the text from all the slides in the right order.
Before I discovered this I used to have to copy and paste the text out of
the slides, but this is much quicker. I use 2007 so if that is what you have
it definitely works.

Subject: Extracting text from powerpoint presentation

Hi, everyone.

Can someone tell me the easiest way to extract and save the text from the
slides in a powerpoint presentation?

I have a powerpoint presentation here from work, and all I need is the text
content for future reference.

As best as I can tell, the presentation is done in Office 2007 powerpoint
format.

Thanks!

Tom Behler in Michigan

safe mode

Dorothy <dorothy.ingram-gorban@...>
 

I have just read about safe mode on this list,I did not know security was
at risk if using it. I only use it under following circumstances, example
for some reason my windows 7 laptop using ms outlook,seems to get stuck in a
dialogue box, and I cannot escape,eventually i try closing down the machine
a dell 64 bit,but it hangs,so I have to pressin button on tower for a while
Later on reloading the machine complains it ms outlook was not treated well
and says to work in safe mode to , it offers this option even though it
assumes I am going to say No, that is get it right, whilst I hear it suggest
safe mode jaws seems to want to choose the No option,eventually I run it in
safe mode for a while then try to close it down. Are you saying if I tried
to log onto web at any point I am putting my computer at risk,or is it at
risk anytime in safe mode? Many thanks dorothy

The very best way is to use Jamal Mazrui's TextPal. The next best way is to f6 to outline view, select all, then copy and paste it to a new document.

Good luck!

Re: Accessible digital TV tuner card

Hello,
I hope you get at this time, ı was telling that there is a receiver which can be controled by the pc at the same time called Dreambox.

If you have an Iphone I can really recommend Remote Potato. It allows you to now only control your Media Centre but also watch all your Recorded TV and other media from your PC actually on your iphone anywhere in the world. Works amazingly well and the developer has bent over backwards to accommodate accessibility improvements which I've suggested. The app now plays the audio described tracks as well so I now have access to audio described TV recordings which is great. I've paired that up with an FM transmitter for my Iphone and now I have good sounding TV where ever there is a radio or I use headphones.

Hi Marilyn, if I may answer you.

yes it does,
I have a digital tuner card running with windows 7 media centre & it
works great,
you can also download a free program called MC buddy that will edit
all the adds out for you.
The MC Buddy, first converts the program you have recorded then
removes the adds out.

So you cant watch it add free strait away, you need to wait for the
MC buddy to do its job.
Normally only an hour or so after the program has been recorded.
Hope this helps
Best wishes.

If it were me I'd go down the route of getting Windows 7 as the media centre

in that is very accessible and does some amazing things. Most, if not all TV

tuners will work with it.

Hello, listers,

Can anyone recommend a digital TV tuner card that will work with JAWS 12? I
am running Windows XP 2002 Home Edition with Service Pack 3.

With thanks,

Marilyn in Canada.
