Re: Jaws and numbering problem

Walter Ramage
 

Hi.  I get the feeling it is a Jaws bug but there is a work around; namely by selecting the files and doing insert/page down.  It is cumbersome compared to the way it used to work but at least it gives one the info required.  Walter.

Subject: [TechTalk] Jaws and numbering problem

 

Hi folks.  I have a jaws question (I use Jaws 16) that is bugging me.  I've just got my PC back after having a new motherboard and a new power supply fitted.  In installing jaws I notice that when I enter a folder it doesn't give me the correct number of files, or folders in a particular folder.  For example I have an audio book drive and I know there is thirteen and a half thousand books in there but when I open the drive/folder it will say the first file/folder is one of 19 and if i go down it gives me different values.  So if it says the first file is one of 19 and then I go down another 18 files/folders then it should read 19 of 19 but it will say something like 36 of 54.  I've gone into the view menu and checked the list option but it has made no difference.  Does anybody know how to get Jaws to announce how to pronounce the correct value such as 5,390 of 10,460 or 6,243 of 13,498 etc please.  Your help would be valued.  Walter.

If any of you happens to get one, I am finding it way easier to send
texts by going to Contacts instead of the button they have assigned. I
know that group texts would work better going through the usual channel,
so eventually will learn that, but right now, it is so easy to enter my
contact and go to text message, then compose and send. The thing that I
really like is that it will read the message back before I send it. I
practiced on my granddaughter. I forgot to tell her I had a new number,
so she sent back a message, "who are you? Who is this?" So, then I told
her and told her to give my number to her sister and dad. I already had
given it to her mom.

Re: World population and blindness percentage to the world population

I don't know if I am missing the point. I am just replying an email
that said that the microwave for blind people almost doesn't exist. In
the same email that person said that jaws never will decrease the
prices. In this email I don't see that point Matt, you are talking
about. I just replyed to that email because if Jaws is not going to
reduce the prices, probably more business are going to see this area
as a way to mae money. If the microwave for blind people doesn't
exist. Well, I see the regular microwaves several times easyer to use
than those microwaves for blind people. The price is not better, so
why being blind I will buy a microwave for blind people if it is
expensive and with less features than a regular microwave?
I don't see any advantage, but probably I am wrong.

No, I don't think like that.
First, we need to stop and think. Really a blind person needs a special
microwave for blind people?
I am totally blind, and I have in my home 1 microwave, it is a over range
microwave, and I use it perfectly. I just put on the digital display some
plastic dots. I have also ovens, toasters, and refrigerators, and any of
those are for blind people. Because of that I can not use them?
No, it is a lie.
I use all of them, normally. So why I will buy a washer machine, or a
driver machine, or a microwave for blind people, that for sure it is going
to have less features than a regular device, if I really don't need it?
It is the reason why this market is almost none today. I will not pay $300
for a microwave that yes, talks. But with less features than a regular
microwave, that just putting plastic dots I will be able to use it?
At home I have bunches of devices , none of them are for blind people.
Now, that the price of jaws is going to go down?
Well, probably if jaws continue being the only solid and secure software,
will not. But if more needs appear in the market, more companies are going
to see this kind of software as a way to make money. More competition,
better quality, less cost.









blind-accessible remote control to serve multiple devices

Greg Daniel <gdaniel@...>
 

Hi listers,

A friend of mine, who is also blind, is interested in information concerning accessible remote controls which can control TV, DVD, and other devices. She has heard of the Logitech Harmony, but doesn't know if that remote is accessible. Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Re: W10 update icon is back again

Matt
 

Yes it depends on how you got your windows update setting set.  I had my set to never check for updates and also thought I had unchecked the box to give me recommended updates the same way I get high priority updates but I must have not! So you want to make sure that Recommend updates is not bundle with high priority updates! Then you will get Recommend updates as optional .

But the big thing is the W10 Icon for wanting you to upgrade to W10 is back and you will install it as it is listed in some cases as a high priority update. Depending on how you got your windows update set. So be careful or you will download and install the update.

creating two different computer account with the same account

Hi all,

I am needing to create to different computer profiles, specificly to create 2 different jaws configurations. But using the same account. I already have several devices connecting to the server and all of them are connected to the same domain. But I don’t know how to do that creating 2  different computer accounts, but using the same user and password that connect to the same domain.

Any body has idea about how to do it?

Thanks

Re: World population and blindness percentage to the world population

I agree it seems like in the case of appliances small and large they are
going in the other direction. I think it will take government actions to
make the appliances companies make their stuff accessible to us! That is sad
as they should just do it as the right thing to do!
Now on Jaws just Remember that FS no longer really owns itself any more so
in the long run there is no telling what might happen there!

So as the blind population increases, the demand for products and services
to serve their needs will also increase. And as demand increases, prices
for these products and services should decrease, right? Only in your
dreams. Does anyone seriously believe that Freedom Scientific is going to
lower the price of JAWS as more and more people come to rely on it? I don't
think so. And as the visually impaired population grows, shouldn't there be
an ever-increasing number of accessible products to meet their need? On the
contrary, the number of accessible products has been steadily decreasing,
not increasing. Ten years ago, for instance, the Independent Living Aids
catalog offered four talking and accessible microwave ovens. Today, it
offers none, even though there are probably more visually impaired people in
the general population than there were ten years ago. The same is true of
other appliances. There are fewer "blind-friendly" appliances on the market
today than there were just a few years ago, even though the blind and
visually impaired population has been increasing.

Hi all,

Yes, that may be so, Matt. However, did you ask Siri about the percentage
of people with disabilities in the world population? Did you ask her about
how fast the population of elders with visual impairments is growing?
Because in developed countries elders are living longer, there is more of a
likelihood that these folks will acquire a disability, blindness, deafness,
mobility impairment, etc.
they are now part of the market share. They will not stop being part of the
market share when they acquire their disabilities.

Yes the cost of things designed to help blind or VI folks is small, but it
is viable and it is growing.

Which may affect the price of or be relevant to market share and the price of items in future but which isn't now and will increase over time.  And a lot of people who will have vision loss in future will use low vision items and won't be blind.
