Hi John
I do use jaws 14 and well, I am using English to type and
when I go to spell check some words are in Spanish and some
in English.
If I type for example Community, I will F7 and it will say
that the word that should be used is Communista, which is
totally different and so that is just one example.
Not all the words are in Spanish, so it's strange.

Re: Spell check help

It isn't a JAWS problem.  In this case, the spell checker is flagging an English word, community, and offering a Spanish word in its place. 
 
I don't know where the spell check settings are for language, but that is the first thing to check.  What language is the spell check set to use.

Sugar,

It may be the language detection setting in JAWS, it happens to me from
time-to-time especially when reading webpages and the speech will suddenly
start speaking in French or something.

Anyway, do the following to turn off the language switching facility in
JAWS:

1. Press JAWS key + j;

2. Arrow down to 'Utilities' and then right arrow once to open the submenu;

3. Down arrow to 'Settings Centre' and press Enter;

4. Type (without the quotes): 'language';

5. A list will appear, arrow down to 'Detect Languages';

6. Press spacebar to uncheck this option;

7. Tab twice to 'Apply' and press Enter;

8.  Tab to 'OK' to close Settings Centre.

Try the spell checker again and see if JAWS now speaks the word in english.

You might also wish to uncheck the 'Detect keyboard language' if the problem
persists. Do the same as above, but arrow down to the 'Detect keyboard
language' option and press spacebar to uncheck.

Don't know if either of the above will help, but worth a try.

actually, if you check to delete mail's copy, with POP, after recieving, it won't download it again on the other device. is what I do, and it works.

I'm not sure how you have things configured, but it really isn't possible to have Email automatically synchronized across multiple devices using POP3. You can configure the account to leave a copy of messages on the server which would allow you to download the same messages on to each device/computer, but for example, if you deleted a message on one computer, it wouldn't automatically be deleted on the others. This is what is meant by synchronized.

Fair point. However, many people I run into these days have
multiple devices, and POP just makes a mess of things when you
are using different devices.... IMAP does a much better job at
keeping everything synced with your e-mail server while still
allowing for offline access.

I'm not sure it really makes sense to say that one is better

POP3 is what I use. If I had a need for Email

OK Carolyn,
The following takes the view that you have already
set up
your Gmail email address and merely want to download
email
via pop to your Outlook client:
1. Go to the gmail website and sign in;
2. Make sure you are in the 'basic html view' and
not the
'standard' view, there is a link that takes you to
the basic
html view and then once in basic view you can scroll
down to
click on 'set basic html as default view';
3. Now press Control + Home to go to the top of the
page,
press 'h' to go to 'Account Options' and then arrow
down a
couple of times to 'Settings' and press Enter;
4. You will find yourself with some options, arrow
down to
'pforwarding and opp/imap and press Enter;
5. Arrow down through the forwarding option until
you get to
'Pop Download';
6. Press spacebar on 'enable pop' so that the radio
button
is selected;
7. Select the option you want, i.e. 'Enable pop for all
mail', 'Enable pop for mail that arrives from now
on', or
'Disable pop';
8. Arrow down to the combo box to choose how Gmail
treats
mail on the web, best option is 'delete Gmail's copy';
9. Arrow down to 'Imap'options and select the
'disable imap'
option;
10. Arrow down to 'Save Changes' button and press Enter.
OK, that is the web side of things done, are you OK
setting
up the Outlook settings or would you like the correct
settings?

that should be used is Communista, which is totally different and so that is
just one example.
Not all the words are in Spanish, so it's strange.

Hello everyone,

When I spell check a document on word it gives me some of the words in
Spanish.



I think that my settings for spell and check is off?

Can someone explain to me how to make sure that English is what I need
through and through the entire process of spell check?

Thanks

Re: More progress in using SDRSharp, for those interested

Jeremy <icu8it2@...>
 

Even though I'm still really new to using SDR, I'll try and write down some ideas on how I'd approach it. Also note that there are two things you need to get started, a receiver and the software for controlling it.

There are a number of receivers that are available, starting out at around twenty dollars up into the hundreds for some of the really high end ones. The second part, the software is where things get a little tricky. In as far as I've been able to figure out, the two best options for Windows are SDRSharp and HDSDR. I wont really go into detail on the differences between the two, as I don't want to bore anyone with stuff I've already mentioned previously on list, but if it's of any interest, certainly feel free to let me know and I'll describe things more with the both of them. Basically though, with SDRSharp and the keystrokes autohotkey application I mentioned before, this is how I would go about listening to the bands as things work currently.

Once you get the drivers for the receiver you want to use installed, you'd also make sure to have the SDRSharp and shortcut keys applications saved to a folder. While it's not necessary to have the shortcut keys running to test the receiver, change some of the options like volume, press the play button etc, you will need it to change other areas that aren't reachable by the screenreader by pressing tab.

Once SDRSharp is running for the first time, you can tab to the section where you select a source, so you'd select your receiver with the up or down arrow keys. Once your receiver is selected here, you can tab quite a bit until you reach a section that contains three buttons in a row. The first button you come to in these three buttons is the play button. Before you press play for the first time, I would recommend tabbing a bit more until you reach a slider, which is the volume. When you first download SDRSharp and run it, the volume here tends to be set quite high, so if you press play and it's set to something like NFM, you might get quite the shock to your ear holes when the unsquelched noise comes blaring through your headset. I'd set this slider to around 20 or so and then shift tab back to the play button and press space. You should then be able to hear sound.

It's at this point that it might be useful to launch the shortcut keys application, and also read through the accompanying notes to get an idea of how the keyboard shortcuts are currently configured. You can also open up the .ahk file that Dale sent with the executable with notepad and read the actual script, but the notes are easier to read at the start. The difference between the executable and the text version of the script is the text script requires that you run it with the autohotkey application, whereas the executable version is everything all in one package so it's easier to use that one.

Once you run the shortcut application, you will notice that your system volume will drop down to around 30 percent. The script is set to do this automatically, so you can use your volume slider in the system tray or the shortcut key he added in the script to raise it back up, control+up arrow. You'll notice in the notes that most of the other keys are simple one letter shortcuts, so as my example here, f for moving to the frequency area field where you can type in the frequency.

I'm not sure what screenreader you're using, but with NVDA, pressing f in the SDRSharp window says unknown. This basically means that NVDA isn't able to read what's actually here, but you can still use your number keys to enter a freq or your left, right, up and down arrows to move around in the field. Every time you press f, it jumps you to the same position in the field, so in the hundred megahertz part. The notes also explain this and how to go about entering a frequency, but I'll try and explain it here too.

When you enter a frequency with the numbers, it automatically fills in the remaining zeros to the right. This means that you don't have to type in a massivly long number, so if you wanted to jump to 460 megahertz, you'd type f, 460 and then enter. You could also type f, 46 and enter, as it should add the 0 to the right of the 6, but it's habit to add the 0 for me. Keep in mind that the entire frequency field is 12 numbers long, from left to right, with the very left number being the hundred gigahertz, ten gigahertz, one gigahertz, hundred megahertz, ten megahertz, one megahertz, etc. This means that the number to the very right of the field is the one hertz position. Once you enter your frequency, you can use your right arrow to move to the number you want to change, so ten kilohertz and use the up and down arrow to move it up and down on the fly. If you've pressed the play button and you have sound, you can hear it as you move through the band by that amount. It will also depend on what stepsize you have selected as to how much your movements through the band actually move you, so this is where being able to see the current frequency in that area would be better. For now though, I just try to keep track of it in my head how much it will move me by my stepsize and by how much it should move me depending on how I am moving up and down through the band, so by tens of kilohertz or whatever.

When you're listening to VHF and UHF it will be pretty important to set your squelch, so when you select NFM as the modulation, you'll notice that this option becomes available and you can tab to it. the squelch checkbox should be selected by default, so pressing tab once more takes you to a combo box where you can adjust it. NVDA mislabels this combo box and reads it as CW shift rather than the level of squelch, so keep that in mind that some of the stuff reads kind of weird. You could then either look up local frequencies and enter them as described or you can jump roughly to the area in the frequency spectrum you are interested in and move through it in smaller steps until you hear a broadcast. For stations that are constantly transmitting, such as radio stations, the weather station etc, moving through the band is much easier, but it does work for the ones that don't.

As soon as we get back in a bit, I'll also post up the files I've been using to dropbox, but that should be enough info to hopefully give an idea on how to get started.
Take care.

Subject: [TechTalk] More progress in using SDRSharp, for those interested

Hey all,
I wrote a while back and asked if anyone on list had ever had any
experiences with finding any of the SDR applications accessible. While
there were a few things that worked okay in HDSDR, out of the keyboard
shortcuts that come as a default, there were still a number of things
that didn't seem to be able to be changed from just the keyboard. After
messing about with SDRSharp, one of the other highly recommended
programs, I ran across an email post where a user of SDRSharp had been
working on a autohotkey script that would add some keyboard shortcuts to it.

While the interface for SDRSharp has more elements that are readable by
NVDA compared to HDSDR, SDRSharp doesn't really have any keyboard
shortcut support by default. As soon as you use the autohotkey script
though, it actually becomes quite usable. While it's worth noting that
these shortcuts don't actually make inaccessible areas of the
application readable from NVDA, by pressing tab or whatever, it does
mean that you can still jump to them and change stuff there.

Currently where I find this most important is in the area that displays
your current frequency. Even though NVDA isn't able to actually read the
numbers there, you can still use the keyboard shortcut to jump to the
area and then move through the number selection area and change them on
the fly. You also have the option to type out the frequency, which is
much quicker than moving up and down in the different positions of the
frequency area.

Where moving to the different positions of the freq area and changing
them with the up and down arrows might be useful though could possibly
be in trying to locate something to listen to up in the higher bands. If
you wanted to locate something to listen to up around the 70 CM band, as
an example, this would be how I'd try and approach it.

First I'd use the key that jumps you to the frequency area, which
currently is set to f. Even though NVDA says unknown, I know that each
time I use the f key it places me on the one hundreds position of the
megahertz part of the frequency. I could then type 460025 to jump up to
460.025, which is a local Dallas Police channel.

One thing that's really neat about SDRSharp by default, as I mentioned
previously, is the number of elements that are accessible and that you
can reach with tab and shift tab. NVDA wont really give you any
indication of the stuff that's greyed out, so settings for squelch if
you're in WFM as an example, but as soon as you change to a modulation
that makes it available, NFM, you can tab around and you'll find the option.

It's also worth noting that there are a fair number of things that NVDA
doesn't read the label for correctly, but I've been working my way
through the accessible parts of the program and noting them down for
anyone else who might want to try it later. Some of them are sorta
obvious too, so the combo box after the squelch checkbox, even though it
reads it as CW shift, it's actually where you adjust the level of
squelch for the band.

Even though it'd be super neat if NVDA was able to read the frequency
area, there are workarounds where you can figure it out. The guy that's
been working on the keystrokes script has also been super helpful in
writing back and forth and has mentioned ways to make it even easier.

Even though I'm super new to SDR and still figuring out a lot of this
stuff, I also know that there are a fair number of people who've posted
with questions as to how to make it more accessible, so I wanted to send
it where it might be helpful. I'd also be greatly interested if anyone
has figured out anything else or has any other questions that I may be
able to help with. Apologies for seriously geeking out and for the silly
long email, but this got me all excited, like a fat kid in a candy
store, so I wanted to share. :)

Basically I payed like 20 dollars for this dongle and even though the
accessibility of most of the SDR programs sucks, I now have something
that I can actually play with and that's kinda fun. lol
Take care and hope everyone's well.

In Internet Explorer, you should be able to go to the file tab and go to export. It will create a webpage file that has all of your favorites as links on the page. You can then put that file on a thumb drive and move it over to whatever machine that you want.

Enquiry about Apple Magic Keyboard

Christopher Hallsworth <challsworth2@...>
 

Evening everyone.

I am writing in with an enquiry on the Apple magic keyboard which I am looking into purchasing as early as next week.

Is it true that when pairing to your iOS device or Apple TV, there is no pairing code to enter? In other words, it just pairs automatically? This is what iMore claims anyway after doing a google search for "Magic Keyboard iOS" without quotes. The manual obtained from the Apple support website only documents how to use it with a mac, and that sounds cool as well, but my main goal is to use it with my iOS devices.

Any responses greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
