i think there is also a setting to turn off protected mode. but i never had to go that far.
this probibly won't work if it has a password to copy the content of the files.
but you could try importing them into openbook or docuscan if you have them.
you could also try to convert them on line with
https://www.robobraille.org/
they don't say if they can convert protected files though.

Greetings,



I’ll attempt to explain my issue.

I signed up to take a class, and the instructor is suggesting we have a specific book and workbook. I contacted the publisher, and he said that although he didn’t make the book available to people electronically, he would make it available to me provided I agree to some pretty sensible logistics. He has the original files used to print the books, and they are PDFs.

These files are password protected, so I can view the files but not edit or change them. I guess there is another password, if I need it, for copying or printing.

I tried reading the file with Adobe Acrobat Reader, but at first, I must not have had some screen reader settings turned on. I went ahead and set them up and tried rereading the book. Once it was done processing and I tried reading it, I just kept hearing “blank” whenever I scrolled down. I had an AIRA agent look at my screen, and he said there were definitely pages of text on my screen, but I guess JAWS wasn’t reading them.

I tried doing a JAWS convenient OCR command, but when I tried putting in the password, it didn’t like it.

I already paid for these files, so I can’t very well return or ask for my money back. I’m just wondering if I’m doing something wrong or if there’s something else I can try to get these two books to read.

I was also going to try copying and pasting some of the material into a Word file, but I guess I’ll need the second password for that. I didn’t think I would.

Is there perhaps some other setting in Adobe? I remember having a similar problem in the past, but that particular PDF wasn’t locked. I still couldn’t get it to read; although, I was able to get JAWS OCR to read most of it.

If anyone has any ideas, I’d appreciate them.

Thanks much.

Jim

Another thought is to useWindows Explorer, and bring up the context menu and select recognize with Jaws, or whatever it is called and see if it will ask for the password and let you put it in then do the OCR process.
You may have to dig through the settings in Adobe to find if there is another accessibility setting that should be set.

I have not done this with the most recent Jaws2020 update but have with the previous version of Jaws 2020. The rest of my setup is same as yours. I have never had to forward to my iPhone as my Gmail account is on both my computer as well as iPhone. Can you install the email address you receive on your computer on your iPhone?

Hello, I’m using windows10, Outlook 2016 and the most recent version of Jaws2020. When an item is returned to Amazon and email is sent with a QR code. Jaws doesn’t recognize the code. In the past I would print out the email and or forward it to my IPhone. This recent return the code doesn’t show up when I print it. Also it doesn’t appear in the email I forwarded to my IPhone. Is there something in Outlook that could be causing the code to disappear? I should say that when I look at the email on my IPhone, it says image removed by sender. I didn’t remove anything. Any thoughts? Cheers, Kevin

Here is the text from the web site Brian provided:

How to Download All Images Automatically

You can allow Outlook to download images automatically by following these easy steps:

  1. Open Outlook.
  2. Click “File”, then “Options”.
  3. Click “Trust Center,” and then click “Trust Center Settings.”
  4. Find where it says “Automatic Download” and uncheck the box that says “Don’t download pictures automatically in HTML email messages or RSS items.”

These steps work for Outlook 2019, 2016, 2013, and 2010 versions. If you are using the 2007 version, things are a little different. Here is how to set the automatic image download for this version:

  1. Open Outlook.
  2. Click “Tools,” and “Trust Center.”
  3. Find the “Automatic Download” option.
  4. Uncheck “Don’t download pictures automatically in HTML email messages or RSS items.”

Although the "message removed by sender" does not seem to be consistent with an issue related to an image not downloading.  I've encountered this on very rare occasions, but have never been able to determine a root cause, so don't be surprised if Microsoft won't, either.

Make sure the images are loading because I guarantee it's a gif or some sort of picture. Usually in the email itself I often see a link saying load all images look for something like that and click on it.

Telehealth is more a term rather than a platform.

I own a language interpreting agency and when we book interpreters for remote sessions it’s considered a telehealth appointment, but the platforms are usually Doxi.me, Facetime, Zoom or some other video conferencing platform.

More often than not, it’ll be Doxi.me. You’ll likely end up getting a link that you click on where you’ll then be able to interact with your physician via video chat in your browser.

I can’t speak to general accessibility stuff, since I broker out my work and haven’t actually done any of these assignments myself. I’d imagine though that accessibility shouldn’t be an issue. You can always reach out to your provider to let them know that you use assistive technology and your concerns. Maybe they can give you a test/dummy link to play with.

Maybe another option is to turn JAWS to speech on demand when you want to share the audio content. This is done with insert Spacebar, then s. The same keystrokes toggle speech back on. I do this is someone calls me via the softphone in my computer when I do not have headphones in.

Thank you for your reply. If the devices were the same in JAWS and Zoom, then the sound of JAWS would be emitted on the other person's computer if I shared computer sound.
I am trying not to have JAWS heard on the other side and just the audio of the music or occasionally video from Youtube that I would be playing.

Hello,
I am trying to share computer sound in Zoom so that I can play some
audio to meeting attendees.
I have a USB headset/microphone and I was told that the way to
accomplish the task at hand is to change the sound card in JAWS to the
headset and change the sound in the Zoom audio settings to speakers
but even when I did this, from the audio settings menu in the Zoom
meeting I had, the JAWS sound still came through.
I also tried changing to the internal system microphone in audio
settings, but this still did not resolve the issue.
How do I go about ensuring that JAWS sound is not heard when I go to
share computer sound?
I know that I can also turn off JAWS speech, but I would rather try
to find a solution that does not have me doing this step.
Thank you in advance for any responses.

Exactly, and companies like Intuit certainly would take security very seriously and their measures to protect your data not just from unauthorized access but also from corruption due to a faulty drive are probably better than what most users do. They would have multiple failsafes in place, redundant backups etc.

Is quick books accessible with JAWS? When I worked with it years ago,
it was pretty manageable. Is it still?

Thx,

The same could be said for Apple with your iPhone, or Google for Android.
At some point, you have to trust someone.

For example, if you back up to iCloud, or to Google Drive, what is to say
your data is not being compromised? What about your contacts? Most of us
store them in the cloud.

All the best

I guess that is fine if you trust Intuit to not share your data, not get
breached and to secure things properly, but how do you know all these things
are so?

Hi,

Quickbooks Online is the best route to go, as it is accessible with
any screen reader.

All the best

Windows 10 has adopted the same language as phones. So Apps, in Microsoft's world, are  somewhat synonymous with programs.
Here are steps from another member:

Here is the steps to tell Windows to let you install non Windows Store apps  This will fix your problem.

1.    Click Start > Click Settings.

2.    In the Settings window, click Apps.

3.    In Apps & Features, change “Choose where to get apps” from The Microsoft Store only (recommended) to Anywhere.

4.    Close the Settings window. The change will only take effect when you close the window.


 


I noticed there are four options, 1. only from the Microsoft Store, 2.  anywhere, but warn me if tit is not from the Microsoft store, 3.  anywhere but let me know if there is a comparable app in the Microsoft store, and 4. Anywhere.HTH,.

It has nothing to do with the Beta but with the Windows 10 setting on where you allow apps to come from.

Since that is a beta, kindly contact freedom scientific so that they could assist you. I am sure they are interested to find out what happen so that they could improve or fix it in the next beta.

Dear Listers:

 

I understand that  the new JAWS 2021 Beta version has just come out.  I am trying to install it.  I am using a Desktop computer, Windows 10 and the latest version of JAWS.  I have downloaded and saved the application for the new Beta version but when I go to the folder where it is and hit the Enter key after locating it, instead of giving me the option to install it I am getting a dialog that just says “get app from store.”  I know apps are only used with phones and I don’t know how to handle apps as I have only a cell phone, not an i-phone, so I don’t know how to rectify this problem and download the Beta version to my Desktop.
