Hello,
Our use jaws 2019, and it seems to work well with that. In order to use jaws 2019, you have to have windows 10. I'm not sure, but I think windows eight and 8.1 will also work.

Re: JAWS Scripts - Are they interpreted or compiled?

Tom <tomcat509@...>
 

Hi Roger,

Using the Jaws repair feature was a failure unfortunately. When it came time to migrate or block previous settings, Jaws would not take 'no' for an answer. I had to minimize the combo box and reboot to get out. This action allowed Jaws to adopt previous settings.

I'll probably uninstall both 2018 and 2019 in a couple of days and so get a clean install of 2019.

Cheers
Tom

You could, but reinstalling it is preferable because I am not sure
what exactly the repair checks for.

Yes, the punctuation script is contained in the default.jss file.

Rather than completely remove Jaws 2019 as you advise, what about if I
deleted the default.jss and default.jsb files from the enu folder and ran
the Jaws 2019 setup program which contains a repair feature. Would this
work or create more problems?

Those instructions are incorrect. You should never modify default.jss
or default.jsb files. There are other ways that Freedom Scientific has
designed for you to create or modify JAWS behavior.

What you need to do is this:

Part A: Check your default.jss and default.jsb file
1. Open Script Manager and press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default file.
2. See if your punctuation script is in the file. If it is, keep
following these instructions. If not, skip to Part B.
3. You need to get a clean copy of these files. The way I would
recommend is to completely remove JAWS 2019 from your system. Then
install JAWS 2019 again, but do not migrate any settings because then
you will be back where you started.
4. Check before using JAWS that this folder is completely empty:
C:\Users\[YourUserDirectory]\AppData\Roaming\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\2019\Settings\enu.

Part B: Adding your punctuation script
1. Open Script Manager.
2. Press CTRL+O to open the Open dialog.
3. Navigate to this location: C:\ProgramData\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\2019\Scripts.
4. Open the file MyExtensions.jss.
5. Write your script at the bottom of this file, and press CTRL+S to compile
it.

Hit enter twice, to insert a couple of blank lines.
paste in the following lines for the script:

I haven't heard of this particular script.

Just to verify, is this a third-party script for which you were
provided with the .jsb file? If so, please make sure you can locate
the file in the following location:
C:\Users\[YourUserDirectory]\AppData\Roaming\Freedom

file, you should probably show it to someone who knows how to read it
to verify that it's not calling on a particular script or function or
something that's been moved around in JAWS 2019.

I have experienced a problem with the punctuation script since
upgrading
from Jaws 2018 to 2019.

Under 2018, the script could be run from anywhere on the system but
since
changing to 2019, the only place the script works is when it is run from
the
desktop. If I am in a folder on another drive say, hitting shift

Jaws says, "unknown script call to".

If I still wish to change the punctuation level then it is a trip back

Hello:
I have problems which I want you lovely chaps to help me about. It is
all about Google drive and dropbox on my computer. I don't understand
how they now work.
I downloaded and installed google drive's backup and sync on my
computer, but it doesn't open. Again, when I intend to upload my
folders and files on to drive using the drive.google.com page, I get
to the new button: I hear new button collapsed: when I press space bar
on it, I hear expanded, but then I don't find any where that tells me
to upload anything.
I even downloaded google chrome data, but when I am using it with
drive, it just suddenly disappears, and I hear JAWS professional which
means that Google chrome data has disappeared. I tried it several
times by relaunching the program, but the same thing happens.
Can anyone please kindly help me about this problem? how can I get around it
On the other hand, I have dropbox installed on my computer and mobile
phone as well.
The problem I have with dropbox is that I cannot upload folders. I
could do this at a time, but some time ago, dropbox updated it's
program, and I can no longer find any link to upload folders. I only
find links to upload files. I did upload files, but they are very
difficult to locate, because they are just to many and they are
scattered all over the place. Maybe I don't know where to find the
link to upload folders: can anyone help? I infact want to delete the
files I have on the program, and upload the folders containing all
those files.
Hope to read a response from you lovely chaps.
Regards.


Re: pros and cons of Office 365

Dan Longmore
 

The bargain is that Office 365 gives you up to 5 separate computers or devices. Also, you can give one or more to a family member or friend and it will not cost them anything. All 5 computers get 1 terabyte of space on "One Drive".
If you use more than one computer or have someone who could use the program but can't do the cost this may be a good way to go. Not for everyone but for multiple people or systems price is good.
Also, "One Drive" is very reliable at least from my setting.

If you want MS Office cheap on a DVD, go to eBay. A single PC license of the professional version that includes Access is $84 and a two PC version is $104. The license lasts forever, unlike the $70 a year for Office 365. That’s $140 for just two years and $210 for three years.
If you get Office 365, Microsoft has effectively turned you into a surf.

Another con for Office 365 is the possibility of being removed from the service and having all your files deleted without notice. Section I of the MS services agreement tells users “Don’t do anything illegal.” This would mean that if you told a friend you smoked a joint of marijuana, you violated the services agreement and can have your account suspended. This is because while the substance is legal in some states, it is still illegal on the federal level. Even if someone were using marijuana to cure themselves of cancer, Microsoft doesn’t care. The person was committing an illegal act and therefore has violated the services agreement and deserves to be banned for life. Another doozy is in section vii of the services agreement.
Microsoft tells users to “Don’t engage in activity that is harmful to
you, the Services, or others.” Microsoft gives obvious examples of
nasty and destructive behavior like transmitting viruses, stalking, and posting terrorist content. Another example listed refers to “communicating hate speech, or advocating violence against others.”
The second provision would be extremely troubling if you are a gun owner and possess firearms for personal defense. Advocating for gun rights, stand your ground laws, and laws that eliminate any duty to retreat from an attacker could be considered by some as advocating violence as the person would be using lethal force in defense of his life. Using violence in self-defense is perfectly legal, but it is still advocating violence, according to some on the left. The technology industry has removed many thousands of people from Web-based services, such as Google, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube over issues of hate speech, which the companies never define or explicitly describe. Recently, large numbers of Google Docs users found themselves locked out of their account because an automated system determined they had used the software to create unspecified material that the company considered hate speech. Those blocked include academic scientists and business owners who insisted nothing of a controversial or political nature was stored on Google’s system. The company later acknowledged that a staff programmer made a change to an algorithm that created many hate speech false positives. If you were to buy an Office 2016 DVD, your access to Access, Word and other Office programs will never be denied for grounds of simply having a political opinion, or someone’s arbitrary determination of hate speech or engaging in illegal activity of a law you knew nothing about.

Re: getting rid of adverts when on a website

 

Marty,

           By the way, there is very little utility in using more than one ad blocker extension, so choose one or the other.

           I personally like uBlock Origin (and in the case of Chrome, uBlock Origin Extra) because it does several things in addition to ad blocking such as malicious script blocking.  You can read on its extension page about the range of additional protections.

Re: Is Edge usable as a browser with JAWS?

Van Lant, Robin
 

Edge is our default Browser here at work.  It’s usable, but several of the quick nav keys don’t work, nor do placemarkers.  I can use if for some things, but will often go to IE or Chrome.  IN particular, I do not like the way Edge presents Favorites.  I cannot use first letter navigation, so it feels more tedious than in IE.

Related to the email address announcement bug in Jaws 2019

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

SO I know others along with myself have posted about this bug with Jaws 2019 and the autocomplete announcement for email addresses in Outlook 2016.

Anyway, I wrote to Vispero and they got back to me with similar instructions provided by another member (I think it was Adrian Sprat) along with a config file attached that I could paste into the setting enu folder.

This file pasting fix worked for the autocomplete issue, but what I’ve found is that now, Jaws doesn’t speak the subject field content in the Outlook appointments as I cycle through them.

I work with roughly 200 appointments a month, so not having this info read to me without opening the appointment first really is a no go.

To be sure that it was the file that I pasted that caused this problem, I removed it and restarted Jaws. Sure enough, the subject field content was being read by Jaws as before, but of course, that meant that the autocomplete email address bug was back too.

Has anyone else who’s used this Jaws fix encountered a similar issue? If so, did they find any sort of workaround that addresses the autocomplete bug and still gets the subject field info for the calendar appointments to be spoken by Jaws?

I’ve already written Vispero about this, but thought I’d check with the list in case anyone else may have come upon a fix for both issues.

Thanks,

Cristóbal

Hi all!

Edge works so much better with Narrator.

You can do everything with Edge using Narrator instead of JAWS.

Hi, Keith. I use Edge for some things like Internet radio streaming, but it has some nasty querks, like displaying pages in tabular form, even when the page doesn’t display as a table in other browsers.

Hi,

 

I’m new to Windows 10, and currently using Google Chrome as my default browser, which is working well.

 

I haven’t heard mention recently about usability of Edge browser with JAWS, so I’m guessing it’s still is not a viable option, but wanted to check by inquiring here.

 

Curious to learn of it’s current status.

 

Thanks in advance, Keith

I use IE or Firefox.

IE more  than the fox.

I also use  edge on my used windows 10 laptop.

So I think they both support extensions.

Your results only linked to the chrome store.

Install either uBlock origin, or Adblock plus. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adblock-plus/cfhdojbkjhnklbpkdaibdccddilifddb and https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ublock-origin/cjpalhdlnbpafiamejdnhcphjbkeiagm I run both, by the way.

Until they make access to the browser's own controls less tabby, I'll be avoiding edge.  I have enough problems without a poor interface.

I use Chrome too, for the most part. I’ve tried edge and it does seem to work with both JAWS and NVDA. There are some oddities with JAWS, for example the speech announces entering and exiting various elementswhen navigation keys are used.

 

However, my experience with Edge is not at all extensive. I don’t yet need it for professional purposes (I work on accessibility research and standards activities, for which Chrome and Firefox are enough). I also use Chrome and safari on the Mac regularly, so it isn’t as though I’m lacking options in the browser department.

 

Edge is well worth watching. Microsoft developers have been improving its accessibility support in impressive ways, including ARIA and HTML standards.
