moderated excel - defining names

Juan Hernandez
 

HI All,

 

I am trying to make my excel spreadsheet read the column names and row names when using the jaws+alt+shift+r or C commands that jaws provides.

 

So I did the following:

 

First I went to column a1, where it says product name

Then I hit alt+m, m, d which loads the define names dialog box and typed product name.

I then pressed ok, and when I go down the colllumn and hit jaws+alt+shift+c it says no column name

 

Can someone please advise me as to what I’m doing wrong?

 

Best,

 

juan

I use my IPhone with Voice dream Scanner for quick scans of mail or to quickly find out what an item on my desk is. It is remarkably accurate . But for important items I do use a flat bed scanner.

Honestly, my opinion is that scanning material with a flatbed scanner is always going to be a bit easier than using a phone unless you have a stand that can position your phone in a stationary location. Even then starting a scanner from a PC keyboard and using that keyboard to quickly save a document or copy and paste that scanned text into another document is, at least for me, a much faster and more efficient experience. There may be others who feel differently about this and I'd be interested in hearing their perspective.

See if it is available in device manager.
Either go directly to device manager and type scanner in the edit field, or from the windows key edit field, type in scanner and select scanners and cameras and make sure Windows is aware of the device.

When I click “Acquire” my computer announces “ Finished – Failed to recognize text.” The scanner has not operated at all at this point. I have only 1 scanner and it is recognized in the “Convenient OCR” “Cameras and Scanners”  dialog. Any ideas why the scanner is not engaged or suggestions I might try to produce scanning?

I haven’t had as much luck scanning more complicated documents with columns or charts using the JAWS OCR.  I tend to open them using K1000 if it’s more complicated.  I only use VoiceDream Scanner on my phone for quick things I need to read and it’s true that it works best with a stand.

When I was working my supervisor always laughed at me because I preferred to
use my flat bed scanner and did not feel the need for the agency to buy me a
pearl scanner.
I think a flat bed scanner will always give a better picture than a camera
of any type.
Although the flat bed scanner is still a camera.
That has always puzzled me, if flat bed scanners get better cameras inside
as time goes on, or if they basically keep the same technology.

Well after a long search, I found what I think is the registry settings but it is very complicated and involves hex values.

If you don’t use hex values, it won’t work and I have an example to set it from the default of 3 seconds to 60 but I wanted something less, I wanted something like 2 minutes so I guess I am going to have to find the hex for 120 which is the setting for 120 second = two minutes and test that otherwise I think it will drain the battery big time.

Yes, what is happening is to save power some sound card drivers are putting the card into a sleep or shutdown mode and so when Jaws goes to send info to the sound card it has to wake up.  This isn’t happening to everyone.  The solution was a small program was written that continually sends something to the card to keep it active. And that way it didn’t have to wake up.

 

In the June release of Jaws they are going to build this feature of keeping the card awake as an option that a person can turn on if they are experiencing the issue.

 

Have a good day.

Hi Alan,

 

You can scan using JAWS in the newer versions but it sure is not up to snuff to equal Openbook. It will scan a document but you couldn’t ever do with it what students and working people need. Vispero give as an excuse not to update OpenBook that they would rather continue to develop JAWS scanning abilities rather than updating OpenBook. They haven’t updated it in years and, where does that leave those of us who purchased it a high price.

Alison,

 

Here are some suggestions I saved from list member, Mike B:

 

How to scan files using a scanning device with the Jaws OCR feature.  Steps are below.  This will only work with JAWS2018 and newer.
 
1. Place whatever you want scanned with the OCR feature on your scanner.
 
2. Press the JAWS Key + Spacebar, then, O, for OCR, and press, A , for acquire.
 
3. Choose the scanner from the, Scanner & Camera combo box pop-up, tab to the, Acquire button, press the spacebar, and the scanner will scan the file using
the Jaws OCR feature.  It will then read it to you.  This is GREAT!
Note:  The shortcut keystroke to acquire is, Alt + Q.
 
To save the file you can export it to Excel or, after scanning select all the text with, Control + A, press, Control + C, to copy to the clipboard, then
paste the text, Control + V, into a text or Word
file and save.

 

 

Best,

Al

Hi Richard,

 

Try the following to see if this setting change will help you with what you're trying to do:

 

1. While in Word press, Insert + 6, on the number row to open, Word Settings Center.

 

2. Down arrow to, Say all closed, and right arrow to open.

 

3. Down arrow to, Indicate Caps during Say All not checked, and press the spacebar to check this option.
note:  this option explained;  Select this check box to have JAWS announce capitalization when reading with Say All. JAWS announces "cap" for single capital letters, and "all cap" for capitalized words. This check box is cleared by default.

 

4. Tab to, Apply , press the spacebar, now tab to, Okay , and press enter to save / close.


Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.

Hello,

 

I’m using MS Word, and I am trying to figure out if the Jaws sound schemes can be customized so that an entire word with the initial letter capitalized can be identified by pitch change or other sound? I know that the sound schemes can help you identify the first letter when a word is capitalized but when I’m proofreading documents as an attorney using “say all” I need to be able to identify if words in a sentence are capitalized more efficiently.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you

Once you’ve created a desktop shortcut to a specific version of JAWS, try renaming it. for example, I’ve renamed JAWS 2020 as “JAWS 2020 shortcut.” This method was recommended by an FS tech support guy, and it has worked for me for several versions. Don’t ask me why.

To rename a file, place focus on the filename, then press F2 to bring up an edit field. Make the changes, then press enter.
