Re: I am not sure what I am going to do.

Hi Jim,

Ok, if that is what you want to do, meaning wait for the new PC, that is fine.  I’m not going against what MS told you, but I would think if the problem is the hardware, it looks like MS would have told you that, especially after they tried a few times to help you.  If I was you, I would now take the time to prepare for the new PC, and what I mean by that is, ask the agency that is giving you the new PC if they are going to have Outlook set up on the new PC, and if so, I would ask them for the password they might use to set up your account, as the product or cerial key just in case you might need that, and what ever else you might need. 

 

Lots of luck! 

 

 

Janet

Hi all, first of all thanks for all your ideas. I called Microsoft today, and told them what my problem was, , and they in their infinite wisdom tried to install windows, the latest version. Of course it would not  install.  If I  went to factory settings and did that, I’m not sure what I could do. so, I think I will just leave things as  they are. The new computer will get here when it does. meanwhile I can  do emails.

Re: Edit Field With Brave Browser Question Please.

Janet
 

Hi mike!  

It’s great to hear from you!  I followed all your steps, and I suddenly realized after using the Insert + spacebar, then pressing S, I just kept getting the exact same results as when I was pressing the insert plus number 2, II’m not running JAWS 2021, but instead, I was running JAWS 2020.  LOL!  Well,  I turned off JAWS 2020, and turned on JAWS 2021, and once again followed your steps, and low and behold, I can now type in the edit field with Brave without it repeating every character, what a relief!  you saved the day!  Smile!  I also after downloading  the huge Windows 10 update on my Laptop, I made the changes on it too!   

 

Thank you Thank you!

Hi Janet,

 

Check your typing echo setting in Brave, it's possible you changed the setting accidentally.  Press, Insert + 2, on the number row to toggle through the options.  The typing echo options are, character, words, both characters and words and none.

 

Hold down the, Insert key, and tap the, 2 key, stopping on the option you want.

 

In Jaws 2021 the, Insert + spacebar, then pressing, S, toggles speech between, Speech on demand, and Full speech.  You'll have to experiment with this to get the hang of the way the 2 settings work.

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

HI Gene,
Ok, I tried both methods, and I get the exact same results.  Didn't JAWS always read text as default? I will be very disappointed if there is no solution, as I love using Brave as my browser, but I just can't stand hearing JAWS always reading every key I press though.  I wonder why would I now start having this problem with JAWS and the edit field though.

One method is to turn off speech, type, then turn it on again.  To turn off
speech, the command is JAWS key space, followed by the letter s.  The same
command again turns speech on again.

It sounds to me as though there is no setting that will solve the problem.
My guess is that what is happening is that when you type, the letter is
appearing as a selected or highlighted letter.  JAWS is announcing it as it
appears because JAWS reads selected text by default.

As I consider the problem, there may be another way to solve the problem.
JAWS key s switches between three options.  The default is highlighted and
it is the one you would usually use.  All is another option and none is
another.  Use the command to move to none and see what happens when you
type.  them move to highlighted after you finish.

Hi All,
Just  for a few weeks maybe a month, everytime I type a search in the edit
field using Brave, it keeps typing every letter as well as every word.  This
is driving me crazy.  I have searched in the Brave settings, I've turned off
audo complete to see if that would make a difference, I've checked JAWS 2021
Echo settings, and he is set to speak nothing as I type, but nothing seems
to make a difference.  Can someone please give me some suggestions as to how
I might rectify this issue before I pull out my hair.  This current issue is
happening on Win 7 as well as Win 10.

Thank you in advance.

Peace Be With You.

Re: Braille Displays

Vicky Vaughan
 

Hi List, By virtue of being a QWERTY keyboard, does The mantis not only have the Shift key, but also the Alt and Control keys? I would find that to be so helpful to have those for keyboard commands, rather than memorizing all the various key combinations that the Freedom Scientific displays make you memorize for those functions.

Do any of you know of any other Braille display that gives you these keys?

Thanks very much!

Sincerely, Vicky V

I think it’s a little more expensive than the focus 40 braille display. But I could be wrong. It’s definitely more expensive than the line of orbit braille displays which are the lower cost braille displays that have been coming out recently.

Is it any more expensive than the others out there? I haven't really priced anything in quite a while but I thought most 40 cell displays were comparable in price. The mantis also has an editor, book reader, and a host of other stand alone apps. The qwerty keyboard makes it worth it to me even if it is a bit more expensive as even though I learned on Braille when I was five years old, I never cared for Braille input.

Re: Braille Displays

Hi, Allen, I recently purchased the Brailliant BI 20X from Humanware and love it! The features I use the most are its basic editor and its terminal, which allows me to connect to my PC and iPhone at the same time and switch between the two. It also has a calculator, file manager, and access to online services including Bookshare, NFB Newsline, and NLS. It will eventually have the capacity to play audiobooks and music in mp3 format. For $1,895.00, it's not a bad deal. I hope that helps.
