Hi all,

Does anyone know of better accessible voice recording apps for the IPhone? The voice memos app records in mono, and doesn't offer anything other than 64k and wav quality. The newer IPhones come with a second microphone. Are any apps able to use it?

folders changing order

heather albright
 

Hello, I always have all my folders in list view and they are always ascending. However, my folders  keep changing to descending so, I have to keep changing it back. This just starting happening today. I checked my folder options but, they all appear to be correct. So why do my folders keep changing the ascending to descending? Thanks Heather

Keith, you probably DO NOT NEED to uninstall Jaws to test out NVDA. If Jaws
starts automatically for you, how about turning that off so that Jaws DOES
NOT start at all?

Thereafter, you can launch NVDA and test out the issue you described.

I am not sure about Backpack Studio but I know Hokusai Editor and Ferrite and multitrack record. As to your original question Enes, I think iOS devices all record in mono pretty much no matter what, and no app will really get around that. I think it's just a system wide thing that is not changeable. Yes, newer iOS devices have an extra mic if I'm right, but I don't think voice recorders really use it and i'm not entirely sure what it's for.


braille embosser users email list?

Josh Kennedy <joshknnd1982@...>
 

Hi,

I’m on this list for the orbit reader of course because I have two of them, one as a backup in case the other needs repaired. So anyway I also have an irie-at or viewPlus braille buddy embosser. I would like to know if there is an email list for braille embosser users? Like a general braille embosser users list or something for support and tips of all kinds of embossers? I sometimes use the braille buddy to emboss pictures and small documents. But I have to admit I use my orbit readers a lot more than the small embosser. When I bought the embosser, I just got it with no addons, no warranty just the embosser that is it because I got a repair quote and they said it would cost around the price of a perkins brailler repair anyway. Besides it just stays in one place on my desk. Just seems like for me if I want braille from my computer, unless I absolutely have to see formatting or some picture or a chart… It’s so much more convenient and faster to hook up a braille display then I get all the braille I want instantly. I did have an issue come up with the embosser where it refused to update to the latest tiger software suite so I had to download a fresh copy and install it overtop of the one already installed and activate it online. Then all was good to go. But if there is a support list for viewPlus embossers that anyone knows of that would be great. I find sometimes I have formatting issues. I’ll go to emboss something and the word-wrapping is wrong or formatting of the braille document is not what I expected.

Re: assuss web storage

Hi.


I haven't tried it in at least 10 years, back then it worked great but it was just a web dav storage location so it just integrated directly with Explorer. Can't really think it would be worth the bother over other options like One Drive. Also it's only got two s's, Asus Web Storage, in case anyone else knows what it is but the way it sounded threw them off.

JAWS2022 Beta Download Link + Much More

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 


Hi All,
 
Okay, below is the Beta download link, the link to the FSCast that provides demonstrations of the new and exciting features in this release, and a direct link to the Beta report form to be used to report any bugs in this release, plus what's new in JAWS2022.
 
 
Download link:
 
 
 
• FSCast web page, provides demonstrations of the new and exciting features in the upcoming 2022 release. 
 
 
 
• Beta Report Form
 
 New Features in 2022
New Features Added in JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion 2022
Automatic Settings Import from Previous Releases
 
When upgrading to a new version of JAWS, any custom settings from a previous release are now automatically imported. This includes features such as speech
and braille display settings, custom scripts, dictionary entries, labeled graphics, and any custom settings you created for applications. Unlike previous
releases, the migration process is now silent (no messages or dialog boxes appear) and begins the first time you start the new version. Custom settings
older than the two previous versions will not be imported. If the import is successful, you will only be prompted to configure JAWS startup options.
 
New Option to Restore Factory Settings
 
Use the Restore to factory settings item, located in the Options menu of the main JAWS application window, to clear all custom settings that were imported
from a previous release or manually configured. Once all settings are removed, JAWS restarts as if it was a brand new installation.
 
Sound Splitter
 
Earlier in JAWS and Fusion 2021, we introduced a way for users to lower the volume of JAWS speech independently of system audio to help make it easier
to hear audio from other applications. Version 2022 takes this a step further by now allowing those using stereo headsets or speakers to route all JAWS
or Fusion speech to one ear while routing audio from the current application to the other ear. This helps make it easier to continue getting work done
with JAWS while following along during a Zoom or Teams meeting, a Skype call, or a YouTube video.
 
To split audio:
 
list of 3 items
1. Make sure focus is in the application that will be playing audio, such as Teams.
2. Press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by V to activate the Volume layer.
3. Press B for Balance, and then do one of the following:
list of 3 items nesting level 1
◦ Press LEFT ARROW to route JAWS Speech to the left and audio from the current application to the right.
◦ Press RIGHT ARROW to route JAWS speech to the right and audio from the current application to the left.
◦ Press UP ARROW to restore both JAWS speech and application audio to both channels.
list end nesting level 1
list end
 
Note: Before attempting to split your audio, make sure your headset or speakers are properly oriented. For instance, if you route JAWS speech to the left
and instead hear it in your right ear, your headset is most likely reversed.
 
Once you split your JAWS speech and application audio, it remains in effect until you restart JAWS, or use the command to restore the audio balance. Additionally,
once you split the sound in the current application, the split continues even if you move to other applications. For example, if you are attending a meeting
in Teams, you can continue hearing JAWS in one ear as you look up information on a web page in Chrome or write down some notes in Word while listening
to your meeting in the other ear.
 
You can also wake up the Voice Assistant and say “Sound Left,” “Sound Right,” or “Sound Balanced.” Make sure your microphone is not muted before speaking
these commands. You also may not want to use these commands in apps like Teams or Zoom as other meeting participants will hear you.
 
Frequently Asked Questions
 
Q: I use a stereo Bluetooth headset that includes a microphone for participating in Teams and Zoom calls. Can I split the audio in this situation?
 
Answer: No, splitting the audio will not work in a call when using a Bluetooth headset. This is not a JAWS issue. When connecting to a call in Teams or
Zoom, it switches from a headphone device to a headset device. By design, the headset device works as a mono device, so sound splitting does not work.
If you want to split your audio during a call, we recommend using a wired headset.
 
Q: Can I split my audio if I'm using a stereo Bluetooth headset to just listen to music?
 
Answer: Yes. If you are playing audio from another source such as a YouTube video, the sound splitter works as expected even if you are using a Bluetooth
headset. You will only experience issues with splitting audio when connecting to a Teams or Zoom call using a Bluetooth headset as it changes from a stereo
headphone device to a mono headset device.
 
Q: Does the sound splitter work with external speakers?
 
Answer: Yes, JAWS speech and application audio will split as expected if you are using your computer's internal speakers, or you have external speakers
connected.
 
Q: While on a Teams call using my USB headset, I moved over to Notepad to write down some information and decided to split my audio so I could hear JAWS
better. After performing the keystrokes, JAWS was routed to one ear, but the audio from teams is still in both ears. Why did this not work?
 
Answer: In Public Beta 1, you must always make sure you are focused in the application where you want to split the audio. For instance, if you are on a
call in Teams and you move over to Notepad to write down some information and you decide to split the audio so you can hear JAWS better, JAWS speech will
move to one speaker, but the audio from Teams will continue to be heard in both speakers. For Public Beta 2, we are working on making it possible to split
audio while focused in any application. For now, we suggest splitting the audio as soon as you launch the application, whether it is Teams or Zoom, and
then join your call or meeting.
 
Q: I currently have JAWS configured to use a different sound device instead of the Windows default sound card. Will I still be able to split the audio?
 
Answer: At this time, this feature only works for the default sound device. If you attempt to split audio and nothing happens, you may need to use the
Sound Cards option under the JAWS Utilities menu to set JAWS to use the Windows default sound card. We hope to resolve this for Public Beta 2.
 
Voice Assistant Improvements
list of 4 items
• The default wake word for JAWS is now “Hey Sharky,” while the default wake word for ZoomText is now “Hey Zoomy.”
• When running Fusion, you can now say either "Hey Sharky" or "Hey Zoomy" and the voice assistant knows which features are for JAWS or ZoomText and will
do the appropriate action depending on what you asked. Previously, Fusion users could only access ZoomText features using the voice assistant.
• After selecting text with JAWS or Fusion, you can now say “Hey Sharky, Read Selection” to read the selected content, or “Hey Sharky, Append” to append
the selected text to the clipboard.
• Selecting the Settings option from the Voice Assistant submenu in the JAWS Utilities menu now opens a dedicated Voice Assistant Settings dialog box instead
of taking you to Settings Center.
list end
 
Faster Braille Language Switching for Multi-lingual Users
 
For users who speak multiple languages as well as students who are learning another language, JAWS has supported manual and automatic speech synthesizer
language switching for years. For braille display users needing to switch between languages regularly, the process was not as straight forward., You had
to open Settings Center, and select a specific language and translation options each time you wanted to read or enter text using a different language.
 
To help make this easier for multi-lingual braille users, JAWS and Fusion 2022 introduces braille profiles. A braille profile consists of a translator
mode and associated braille tables for input and output in a specific language. This now allows you to switch the braille language on-the-fly from the
main keyboard, braille display, or using automatic language switching in documents or web pages, as we do with speech. You can also link the braille input
language to the keyboard input language so when you press ALT+SHIFT on your computer's keyboard to switch the language used for typing, the Braille input
language switches with it.
 
To configure profile options, a new Language Profiles dialog box has been added to Settings Center under the Braille > General > Translation group. For
users who only use one language, there is no need to use this dialog box as you can still set your input and output translation settings as you always
have in the main Translation group or the Startup Wizard.
 
Setting Up Preferred Profiles
 
To choose your preferred profiles that you can quickly switch between using a keystroke, do the following:
 
list of 6 items
1. Press INSERT+6 on the number row to open Settings Center.
2. To apply changes to all applications, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the JAWS default settings.
3. Type “profiles” without the quotes into the search edit field.
4. Press DOWN ARROW to move to Language Profiles in the search results in the tree view and press SPACEBAR to open the dialog box. You are placed in a
list of profiles that correspond to all braille languages installed with JAWS.
5. Press SPACEBAR on each profile that you want to select as a preferred profile.
6. Select OK to close the dialog box and once more to close Settings Center.
list end
 
After setting up preferred profiles, you can then use the CTRL+SHIFT+WINDOWS+L keystroke, or DOTS 2-3-4-5-7 CHORD on a Focus braille display, to quickly
switch between profiles if you need to read or type text in different languages.
 
You can also set a primary language profile which is always used when JAWS starts. By default, the primary profile always matches the JAWS language. For
instance, English – United States is always used when running the English version of JAWS. To change the primary profile, open the Language Profiles dialog
box, choose the language profile you want from the list, and then select the Set Primary button.
 
Configuring Translation Options for a Specific Profile
 
To configure braille translation input and output settings for a specific language profile, do the following:
 
list of 5 items
1. Press INSERT+6 on the number row to open Settings Center.
2. To apply changes to all applications, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the JAWS default settings.
3. Type “profiles” without the quotes into the search edit field.
4. Press DOWN ARROW to move to Language Profiles in the search results in the tree view and press SPACEBAR to open the dialog box. You are placed in a
list of profiles that correspond to all braille languages installed with JAWS.
5. Select the profile you want to configure translation options for and then choose the Details button to open the Profile Details dialog box. Here, you
can:
list of 5 items nesting level 1
◦ Choose the grade of braille to use when reading and typing contracted braille. The available options depend on the currently selected profile. For instance,
Unified English Braille (UEB) Grade 1 or Grade 2 are not available when configuring the Spanish language profile.
◦ Choose which translation mode to use. The available choices are to use Computer Braille for both input and output, Computer Braille for input and Contracted
Braille for Output, or Contracted Braille for both input and output. You can also quickly toggle between translation modes for the active profile by using
DOTS 1-2-4-5-7 CHORD on a Focus braille display.
◦ Select which tables to use if Computer Braille is selected for input or output. This enables you to use different languages for reading and typing text
if needed.
◦ Choose whether or not capital signs are shown on the braille display when viewing Contracted Braille.
◦ Choose whether or not the Liblouis computer braille tables are used when reading or typing in Computer Braille.
list of 1 items nesting level 2
■ After making your changes, select OK to close the Profile Details dialog box and continue selecting OK to close the Language Profiles dialog box and
Settings Center.
list end nesting level 2
list end nesting level 1
list end
 
Configuring Braille Language Auto Detection
 
If you want JAWS to automatically switch to the appropriate braille language when reading or entering text, do the following:
 
list of 7 items
1. Press INSERT+6 on the number row to open Settings Center.
2. To apply changes to all applications, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the JAWS default settings.
3. Type “profiles” without the quotes into the search edit field.
4. Press DOWN ARROW to move to Language Profiles in the search results in the tree view and press SPACEBAR to open the dialog box.
5. Select the Link braille input language to keyboard language check box to have JAWS use the appropriate braille input language that matches the currently
active keyboard language. For example, if you switch the keyboard language to Spanish (ALT+SHIFT), JAWS automatically switches to Spanish braille, so you
can continue entering text from your display in the correct language.
6. Select the Automatic language detection check box to have JAWS use the appropriate braille language that matches the current language of text in a document
or web page. For example, if JAWS detects text in a document written in Spanish, JAWS automatically switches to displaying the text in Spanish braille
using the translation mode settings configured in the Profile Details dialog box for the Spanish profile.
7. Select OK to close the dialog box and once more to close Settings Center.
list end
 
JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion Discontinues Windows 7 and 8.1 Support
 
In order to keep pace with continued advancements in Microsoft Windows technology, JAWS, Fusion, and ZoomText 2022 will no longer install and run on versions
of Windows earlier than Windows 10. We also continue improving support for Windows 11, scheduled for release in the coming months. Versions of our software
will continue to be available for users of older Windows versions from our Previous Downloads web pages.
 
Improved Performance in Microsoft Office Apps
 
JAWS 2022 offers a number of general improvements when working in Office 365 applications. In particular, users should notice increased responsiveness
when navigating Outlook message lists and working with emails, as well as when editing Word documents.
 
Docking the Quick Access Bar
 
By default, the Quick Access Bar is now docked to one of four corners on your screen when you start ZoomText or Fusion. This provides a location for the
Quick Access Bar to return to when it loses focus. It also makes it easy to find when viewing a magnified screen.
 
The bar can be docked in the top right corner, top left corner, lower right corner, or lower left corner of the screen. If you want to change the dock
location, do the following:
 
list of 3 items
1. If the Quick Access Bar is not expanded, click the Show Shortcut Names button to expand the bar.
 
Show Shortcut Names button
 
2. Click the Customize button and then Preferences.
 
Customize button
 
3. Select Automatically Dock to Screen Corner and select a screen corner in the Corner list.
list end
 
Watch for further improvements to the Quick Access Bar in Public Beta 2.
 
Additional Changes
list of 8 items
• Made numerous performance improvements for ZoomText tracking and navigation in various applications.
• JAWS 2022 includes updated scripts from Corel for WordPerfect 2021.
• For those who create JAWS scripts, added comments at the top of default.jss, so users know how to save a modified copy of this file to their user folder.
• Added a new option to toggle the announcement of text marked as a sugestion in Google Docs. To change this, open Settings Center and locate the Suggested
text announcement check box.
• In the Braille and Text Viewer, changed the default font size to 20. The previous font size of 40 was too large for most users.
• When moving to a new slide in PowerPoint, JAWS no longer says "no selection" prior to speaking the slide info, which was unnecessary speech. Now, JAWS
only announces the slide title and number.
• Added the ALT+Q command to the Windows Keys Help (INSERT+W) which opens the Quick Search feature in Microsoft Office apps.
• JAWS now properly reads the title of the current page in Chrome or Edge when using CTRL+TAB to move between open pages.
list end

Hi Sharon

Here is a link to the JAWS scripts to make the windows 10 app quite
accessible. There is also links to information about how to use the scripts
with the app on the page.
https://dlee.org/audible/
Once you've installed the scripts, you can press the JAWS key with f 1 twice
for help directly within the app.

You don’t have to remove JAWS.  Just unload it after it runs.  Then run NVDA.

Subject: [TechTalk] how do I uninstall jaws from my windows 10 laptop?
 
I have a laptop that originally came with windows 8.1 and that my cousin upgraded to windows 10 when windows offered the free upgrade.
 
I have jaws and NVDA installed on the computer and I have had one member of this list remotely enter my system to help me configure thunderbird to be used as my email client.
 
I noticed after my cousin gave me my computer back, with the upgraded version of windows 10 on it  that it was slow, like someone reading braille by letter by letter, but after they read the first letter, they have to check their learning braille books for the next letter one by one, on and on until they have the complete word spelled out and then they move on to the next letter.  I can click con a link  or option in the various windows or what not and walk away from the computer for about 2 to 3 minutes and  I will hear the computer just starting to do what I want it to do.
 
even the person who helped me remotely said "man, your computer is exceedingly slow"  have you degragged the hard drive.  my answer:  yes, several times.
 
I have removed apps, programs, ect and to no avail.
 
so, I  have asked here on the list and have had some luck from gene and perhaps 2 or 3 other people with helpful suggestions or websites to look at.
 
my cousin who upgraded the computer from windows 8 to windows 10
said that it was probably the screen reading program that was slowing my system down.  So, I wish to do a test.  I wish to remove jaws  and run NVDA on it to test to see if jaws is the issue.  yes, I know, I know, why would the premier screen reading software company cause such a slow down on a system, but the whole "resetting" the computer to a "fresh copy of windows 10" did nothing to fix the issue, if I did it correctly via a webpage from the virge that gene had posted to the group. 
 
I do not wish to start a debate between members regarding resetting in windows 10 and restetting iin earlier versions as the word has ddifferent meanings in different versions of windows.
 
So, bottom of the line,  how do I remove a program from a windows 10 computer?
 
Thank you.
 
Regards,

Is the Audible app accessible on Windows 10 PC or any update on Mac?

Hi,

Does anyone use the Audible app on your Windows 10 PC or any version of Mac? If it's accessible, how do you go about playing the books from your Audible library?

Thanks,

That’s right! I forgot about that one! It’s a great app! It’s good for recording podcasts and various kinds of music recordings if you want to be a DJ because it allows you to mix tracks and add sound effects.

Hi all,

Does anyone know of better accessible voice recording apps for the IPhone? The voice memos app records in mono, and doesn't offer anything other than 64k and wav quality. The newer IPhones come with a second microphone. Are any apps able to use it?

Hi. Did try this a while back or a year or two back, and was not very accessible with jaws, and nvda. Has any one tried this webstore and is it more accessible now.

Thanks.
