Hi Hank,
 
you don’t really need to enter any provider data. When you’re connected to the internet, the browser will automatically display websites, unless you need a proxi. Or are you refering to checking provider e-mail using your browser?
 
Regards,
Nermin

Hello back Dave and everyone,
 
First of all, thanks very much for all your very helpful replys to my firefox questions. So I don’t need to create an account in firefox when I first start using it after I get a newer version of Jaws to be able to successfully use it?
 
I am also wondering once I have installed firefox, what are the menu steps I need to do to enter my internet provider user id and password info so I can successfully access the internet when I start firefox each time to do things on the internet? Thanks very much in advance for any help I can maybe get with this.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Warmest regards,
All the best,
 
Jaws18 user  
Hank

Hello Hank and everyone:
 
I have been using Water Fox for several months. One of the main reasons I like it, is that you do not need to have an account, in order to use it, in that way, it is like using Internet Explorer.

Hello Glen,
 
Thanks for your email reply. What version are you using of Jaws with firefox?I have heard that when you are first setting up firefox that you need to first create a account in firefox and that each time after that when you go on the internet with your setup firefox that you need to sign into your firefox account to be able to do anything you want to do on the internet using your setup firefox browser. Can you maybe please tell me if this is the case that you first need to create a acount in firefox and then need to sign into this firefox account each time you open firefox to be able to successfully do anything on the internet? Any help that maybe you can give me on this would be very much appreciated. Much thanks in advance for any help with this.

Hi Addison,
You can get Open Office at:

And Libra Office at:

I used to use Open Office, and switched to Libra Office.
If one doesn't suite your taste, you can use the other.

No - JAWS OCR will not be able to read a .DBF because it is a database
file - You would need to use a DBF viewer but that may not be accessible.

FYI - a DBF holds more than textual information - Data is stored within the
file in an array with multiple records and fields.

Hi Hank,
I am currently using 2019, but I was using it with 18 with no problems.
And no, you don't need to create an account, I've never heard of that.
It's very similar to setting up IE or Chrome, in fact, you can use it just fine without even setting it up, only installing it.
Then you might want to set a home page, which is in preferences.
Good luck.

moderated List Rules - Sun, 03/01/2020 #cal-notice

main@jfw.groups.io Calendar <noreply@...>
 

List Rules

When:
Sunday, 1 March 2020
12:00am to 1:00am
(GMT-05:00) America/New York

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin
 


moderated Changing the order of accounts in win10 mail?

Jessica D <jldail13@...>
 

Hi,

I had to reset my computer today.

After the reset, I noticed that the mobile versions of the office apps, except Outlook were installed.

Outlook wasn’t there, so I figured I’d give the win10 mail app another shot.

 

I’ve used it before, but its been at least a year, since I tried it last.

 

Its working well, but I can’t figure out how to change the order of accounts, or if that’s even possible?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

Adobe is a good thing to keep.
Once you get one of the offices installed,, hopefully that file type will no
longer be associated with Adobe, but if it is, you may have to go into "open

installed.
Maybe the office program you install will do this during the install.

Are you working on a citrix environment? In that case you must install jaws both on server and client and use jaws tandem.

Yes I am working with sap on a server / client environment.

Regarding allow scripting on server, probably you will have to contact the sap accessibility team. The settings on server end are not as easy to do. There are some forums on sap webpage about that.

Hi Brian,
This should not be an issue, but if you tap the windows key and type in firewall, you can get to windows firewall settings and find it in the exceptions list.
But again, when Jaws is installed, this is usually added.
Maybe the others are not using administrator privileges in their account settings.

moderated Re: Microsoft Excel And Filters

muhammadBilal Arshad
 

I also used the filter a lot at my workplace.
We usually have to sort out the numeric data and filter out some particular values, like zero's etc.
Here what's I use/do:
  • Select the top most row of the data and presses the ctrl+shift+l for filter on/off. Jaws immediately reports the filter state.
  • move to the column where I have to apply the filter, and presses the alt+downarrow there.
  • Now, if I have to remove all of the rows which contains zero value, I move to the number filter submenu and hit enter on doesn't equal....
A edit box displayed which ask me to type the number, I type there 0 (zero) so only those records which doesn't equal to zero are displayed.
The good thing about this filter is that you can use the multiple conditions with it.  
I not tried the text filters with that greater details , But I think they're also works in the similar Fashion.

Adobe is a good thing to keep.
Once you get one of the offices installed,, hopefully that file type will no
longer be associated with Adobe, but if it is, you may have to go into "open
with..." and select the calc program with the office program you have
installed.
Maybe the office program you install will do this during the install.

No - JAWS OCR will not be able to read a .DBF because it is a database
file - You would need to use a DBF viewer but that may not be accessible.

FYI - a DBF holds more than textual information - Data is stored within the
file in an array with multiple records and fields.

You really need to try and provide more information and maybe double check the file extension.
As others pointed out, a "dbf" file is a database file and it has nothing whatsoever to do with Jaws OCR, Openbook or OCR in general.
Jaws OCR can read image files which can be PDF, JPG, TIF etc. In older versions of Jaws only PDF files can be recognized with OCR, I think the ability for Jaws to do OCR on other imageformats such as JPG, TIF, PNG etc. was introduced in Jaws 2019, maybe it was 2018, but certainly not before then.
It may help if you explained where the file came from, what is supposed to be in it and I guess even better would be if you could share it with the list as long as the information is not personal/confidential.
If you Google "How to open or read a DBF file", you find all sorts of articles, there apparently is a free "DBF Viewer" utility you can download, there are online conversion tools and it seems that you can also open a DBF file directlyin Microsoft Access or Microsoft Excel.

Hi Addison,
That sounds like it would be best for PDF files, not the type you want to
access.

Addison,
Don't you have Office, or another DB software, like one of the free ones?
Such as Open Office or Libra Office.
Not sure I guess why you are wanting to scan it with OCR.

No - JAWS OCR will not be able to read a .DBF because it is a database
file - You would need to use a DBF viewer but that may not be accessible.

FYI - a DBF holds more than textual information - Data is stored within the
file in an array with multiple records and fields.

I don't think Sherry knows that a DBF file stands for Data Base Format which
holds tectual information. it isn't graphical nore is it a document, so
JAWS's OCR won't work to read it.

Oh smack Mario !! Well I had forward to the email to one of freedom
scientific technical support she ask me if I try with OCR then she give
me the instruction Have you tried using convenient OCR? Steps below.

1. Open the document and wait for it to process.

2. Press insert spacebar. Afterward press O for COR.

3. Press D for document. Jaws will say, document OCR started. Wait for it to
finish and it will automatically start reading.



Sherry Gomes
So that what I did !! When I try without OCR jaws not reading too.

All the unit knows is the filename.  If you want the name to be different, rename the file before you copy it to the display.

No, you cannot download a book from the iphone to the braille display. Maybe some day they will write an app for such, that's what it would take.

As long as you put it in the booksfolder. No reason to pull the card, though; there is a keyboard combination you can use while you turn on the display to have it seen as an external drive. That litttle card isn't all that easy to deal with directly.

First you have to unzip it and there should be a BRF file, and you should put that into the Braille display.
It should have an SD card to copy it into, and then find it via the file menu of the Braille display.

Hi,

I would open the file with wordpad and silence the synth so it isn't
blabbing on and on while you are trying to read.

That's what I used to do anyway. The one problem with this approach
is you won't be able to mark your place unless you actually insert
something into the file. I used to write three asterisks and the
words stopped reading here. That way when you open the book again
you will be able to easily find where you left off reading.

Also, with Firefox Send, you can upload files up to 2.5 GB and password protect, set to expire after X amount of days or downloads.

Chrome’s now my main browser, but having a Firefox account is handy. No different really than signing into your Google account in Chrome on different machines I suppose.

The advantage of having an account is that if you use two devices or if you ever get another computer that all you have to do is log in and all your history, extensions, bookmarks and so on are synced between devices or to a new computer.

Hi Hank,

I am currently using 2019, but I was using it with 18 with no problems.

And no, you don't need to create an account, I've never heard of that.

It's very similar to setting up IE or Chrome, in fact, you can use it just fine without even setting it up, only installing it.

Then you might want to set a home page, which is in preferences.

Good luck.

Hello Glen,

 

Thanks for your email reply. What version are you using of Jaws with firefox?I have heard that when you are first setting up firefox that you need to first create a account in firefox and that each time after that when you go on the internet with your setup firefox that you need to sign into your firefox account to be able to do anything you want to do on the internet using your setup firefox browser. Can you maybe please tell me if this is the case that you first need to create a acount in firefox and then need to sign into this firefox account each time you open firefox to be able to successfully do anything on the internet? Any help that maybe you can give me on this would be very much appreciated. Much thanks in advance for any help with this.
