I suggest you type

“belarc advisor download”  in your web search, download   and run it.

 

It gives all kinds of hardware and software info including key codes and serial numbers of installed programs including  windows.n

Hi,

Which generation processor does it have? Usually, laptops around 2007-2010 hold up to 8 gb, while laptops as well, possibly earlier, and onwards can hold up to 16 gb, while newest might hold up to 32 gb or 64 gb. You can check processor specs on Intel.

It isn't the correct spellling.  It should be:
 
People shouldn't write links from memory unless they are absolutely sure they are correct and even then, checking them by doing a search first would often be a good idea.  It isn't just a question of minor inconvenience these days.  Criminals buy domains with very similar names to popular sites.  They try to catch people who make typing errors.  The fraudulent sites look like the real ones and try to get people to give personal information they can use for identity theft or the improper link takes you to a site that tries to place malware on the computer. 
 
And if people do write links, and make sure they are correct before writing them, they should check the link, letter by letter before sending the message to ensure that there are no typing errors.

finding podcasts when you're not sure of the spelling

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,


I just saw a podcast mentioned on twitter on my iPhone that I'm interested in but I'm not sure of the spelling so I'm not sure how to find it.  On twitter the name is "at 12 6 podcast", it's a baseball podcast, so how can I either verify the spelling or find it some other way?  Btw I'll be using my 2nd generation Victor reader stream to find it if that matters, and it is mentioned that the podcast is available through both iTunes and Spodify but I don't subscribe to either one of those.


Thanks.


Troy

Re: downloading Jaws 2019

Gene
 

There is a good reason to keep an older version when you update to a newer one.  If you try a new full update and find a bug or an area where it doesn't work as well as the version you were using, you can use the version you left on your machine for that purpose.  Many people leave the version they were using on their machines until they have used the new version enough to know if there are any deficiencies or bugs.  I consider that to be an advantage of JAWS over the other screen-readers I've tried or used and use now.

Dear Keith & List:

 

Contact HP. Give them your laptop model and serial number. They can advise how much RAM it can use.

 

I upgraded this laptop from eight to 16 GB, does not seem to speed it up much but should.

Depending upon the age of your laptop, it may be advisable to scrap it and buy a new one.

 

Have a Dell Mobile Workstation I loaded up with 64 GB of RAM. Figure that should let it survive several updates to Windows without running out of RAM.

Re: downloading Jaws 2019

Gene
 

I would think using the disk might save some time.  Others who use JAWS may wish to comment.  I haven't used JAWS to any extent for years and I'm speculating about the following:
When you install a new full version of JAWS, it installs a version of I believe its Fine Reader to work with its OCR feature.  This is a large enough installation that the download may take a fair amount of time.  On the disk, the Fine Reader version should already be there, thus saving time, perhaps enough to amount to something unless you have a fast connection. 
 
Also, on a list recently, I saw a message that all the instructional information is installed from the Cd, whereas if you download JAWS, you have to install whatever you want separately.

Thanks for responding.  I just got the disc a couple of weeks ago so I think I will use that.  When it's installed, when I turn on my computer  will it say Jaws 2018 or Jaws 2019?  How do I merge my settings over from 18 to 19?  Thank you.

Shelly,

I really should have done a better job in processing your last message before I wrote my last response. You said that you received a CD in the mail. Is it the CD for JAWS 2019? If it is and if the process of downloading a file is too daunting then you could just insert the CD into your computer's CD drive and install JAWS 2019 from that disk. However, my guess is that the CD may contain a slightly older version of JAWS 2019 which was released in October and the link that I pointed to in my last message contains a more recent version of 2019 which was released in December. If you feel that you're able to download and install the file from Freedom Scientific's Web site it might be better to do that since you'll be starting out with the very latest version.

Re: Using a radio scanner

Gene
 

Thanks for the detailed information. 
 
I'll send it to my friend.
 
I don't know if this can be done because I would expect scanners to have different procedures, but if I sent the brand and model to the list, could someone send instructions for programming that specific scanners as to where controls are and what the procedure is? 
 
I don't know if this will be possible, if it can be done; I just want to know if it can be or if the person might need sighted assistance to become familiar with the controls and how to use them.

Dear Jean & List:

 

Your friend wants to check the web site https://www.radioreference.com

 

This is a database of scanner frequencies in various places, like everywhere.

 

If your friend’s scanner accepts an SD card, he can buy a card preprogrammed for the frequencies in use in his location. Will have railroad, police, fire, weather, everything imaginable, including taxi and paging services.

 

Some paging services are tone only these are dull. Others are voice pagers, where you hear the announcement the pager user hears when someone pages them. Some pagers such as those operated by Telephone Answering Service, with their Pagette pagers; announce the pager number they are paging with each page. After your friend listens to them for a while, they can tell by the pages, someone receives what sort of business they are in and if they are interesting to listen to.

Preprogrammed SD cards sell for a reasonable price. If your friend goes out of town, they can carry a preprogrammed SD card for where they are going.

 

Some scanners can be modified to receive additional trunked radio types. Each modification is typically $20. Your friend can obtain a PDF file of the manual for their scanner by contacting Bearcat, which is a brand of Uniden Electronics. They are a good bunch and will e-mail you are a friend a link to the PDF manual. Your friend can read the PDF document with Word 2010 and up, possibly earlier editions.

 

Alternatively, install the Free Acrobat Reader from Https://www.adobe.com

 

The scanner may have come with a CD with a programming program; there are freeware programming programs on the Radio Reference web site.

 

Happy scanning to your friend. Note that some Police and other organizations scramble their radio transmissions. It is unlawful to try to receive such transmissions un-scrambled. This does not mean you will not find technicians who will modify the scanner to receive such, just that if you are caught doing so, your friend could be in serious trouble with the law.

Re: What brand of Windows laptop to buy?

Gene
 

Yes, people shouldn't buy the cheapest computer.  One way to proceed is to tell the list what you will use the computer for and if you anticipate other uses in the future and people may recommend specifications or specific computers. 
 
Also, there are buying guides that give general information about what to look for, depending on how you are going to use the computer.  I may send a link to one tomorrow.

Just as you can buy too much computer, it is more likely to see someone

Re: downloading Jaws 2019

Thank you so much for giving me the right address to the jaws users list.

On 1/6/2019 1:17 PM, Mike B. wrote:

Hi Shelly,
 
 Here is the Jaws-Users list email list subscribe link + the latest J2019 down load link:
 
 
Below is the download link for both 32 & 64 Bit, the same link works for both, plus what's new in this release.  Also, below What's New are some frequently
asked questions with answers.
 
32 & 64 Bit:
 
http://jaws2019.vfo.digital/2019.1812.49.400/64B6B33C-26C3-4AC2-852B-8CD8F79F2796/J2019.1812.49-any.exe
 
What's new:
Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1812.49 (December 2018)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the initial JAWS 2019 release and the December 2018 update.
 
Improved AutoCorrect Detection in Word and Outlook
 
With the improvements to UIA support in Office 365 versions higher than  16.0.10400, JAWS can now immediately alert you when text is AutoCorrected as you
edit documents in Word or when composing emails in Outlook. By default, when you are typing in word or the body of an email and you press the SPACEBAR
after a word that is AutoCorrected, JAWS plays a pop sound. In addition, if you stop typing, so that speech is not interrupted, JAWS says "Auto Correct"
followed by the corrected word including the spelling.
 
As you navigate a document, JAWS can also announce if Word has automatically corrected the current text. You can then press ALT+SHIFT+F10 to open a context
menu that allows you to undo the correction, stop automatically correcting that word, or change your AutoCorrect options. For instance, if JAWS alerts
you that a word you just typed was corrected but you prefer to use the word as you originally typed it, you can navigate back to the item, press ALT+SHIFT+F10,
and choose "Change back."
 
Note: When typing in the body of a new message in Outlook, JAWS can alert you when text is AutoCorrected, however, the context menu for changing AutoCorrect
options is only accessible using a mouse. Microsoft currently only allows the ALT+SHIFT+F10 command to be used in Word.
 
If you do not want to be notified when text is AutoCorrected when you press the SPACEBAR, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) from Word and turn off the "Spelling
buzzer on mistyped words" option. Note that this will also turn off the buzzer sound that is heard to indicate a misspelled word.
 
If you do not want to have JAWS alert you to corrected words as you navigate a document, open Quick Settings from Word and turn off the AutoCorrect Detection
option.
 
Support for Co-Authoring Documents in Word 365
 
If a shared document is opened by multiple users, JAWS can now do the following:
 
list of 3 items
• Indicate who has the document opened using a notification message.
• When another co-author navigates to the same line as the JAWS user, JAWS will indicate who is editing the same line. Pressing INSERT+UP ARROW to read
the current line will also announce who is reading or editing at that location.
• When a co-author actually edits the same line you are on, JAWS indicates that the text is locked for editing. If you press INSERT+UP ARROW, you will
hear "Editing locked." You will also be alerted that the line is locked if you begin typing.
list end
 
Navigation Quick Keys Now Available in Google Docs
 
Google Docs provides a number of keystrokes to help users navigate through documents more efficiently. However, these commands are difficult for users
to discover and use repeatedly. For example, you can press ALT+CTRL+N followed by ALT+CTRL+H to move to the next heading which could be difficult to press
multiple times for some users.
 
To improve document navigation, you can now press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by Q in Google Docs to activate a Quick Keys layer. Braille support must also
be turned on in Google Docs for this to work correctly. Even if you do not use a braille display, Braille support provides the most accessibility information
to JAWS so you have the best experience when navigating and editing documents. If Braille support is not already enabled, press ALT+SHIFT+A for the Accessibility
menu, open the Settings submenu, and press ENTER on Enable Braille Support. Once the Quick Keys layer is active, the following navigation commands are
available:
 
list of 3 items
• Move to the next or prior heading: H or SHIFT+H
• Move to the next or prior list: L or SHIFT+L
• Move to the next or prior table: T or SHIFT+T
list end
 
While this layer is active, you can continue to use the ARROW keys to review text. For example, you could press INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q, H to move to a heading,
press DOWN ARROW to read a couple lines, and then press H to jump to the next heading without having to press INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q again. This layer remains
active until you press ESC or any key that is not one of the supported navigation keys described above.
 
Other Changes
list of 24 items
• Resolved an issue with JAWS double speaking links in PDF documents.
• The Liblouis braille translator used in JAWS has been updated to version 3.7 offering improved Unified English Braille (UEB) tables, back translation
improvements, and new Chinese language tables.
• In the Windows 10 Fall 2018 update,JAWS now reads as expected in the Clipboard history window accessed by pressing WINDOWS Key+V.
• Resolved an issue with JAWS not reading as expected in the Windows 10 Emoji panel accessed by pressing WINDOWS Key+SEMICOLON. Note that there is still
a known issue where emojis will not read correctly in emails opened in Outlook 365.
• Due to major changes with the UPS website, the UPS Tracking Research It lookup source has been removed as it can no longer search and retrieve results
from this service.
• JAWS now supports reading PDF documents in Edge. This includes navigating documents using standard reading commands, using Navigation Quick Keys such
as H to move by headings, and entering Forms Mode in edit fields.
• JAWS can now indicate if a form field is marked as "required" in Edge.
• Addressed a reported issue where the Announce Multiline Edit option in Setting Center would not remain active in the Default settings file.
• Resolved a reported issue in Notepad where JAWS was not automatically reading the prompts for the edit fields in the Find and Replace dialog box.
• The JAWS setup program now displays a splash screen when it first starts and before the main installation screen appears.
• Pressing INSERT+F1 twice quickly in Chrome now displays a JAWS help topic.
• In addition to pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by H to display the speech history in the Results Viewer, you can now press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed
by CTRL+H to copy the speech history to the Clipboard for pasting into an application. The speech history includes the last 50 announcements spoken by
the synthesizer.
• In Winamp, you can now perform single-letter commands directly from a braille display's  keyboard including the Focus Blue such as X to play, V to stop,
C to pause, and B and Z to move to the next or previous item in a playlist.
• When accessing documents in the online version of Word 365 using Chrome or Firefox, resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected when navigating
by line.
• Resolved an issue with JAWS not announcing autocomplete addresses in Outlook 365.
• Resolved a reported issue where JAWS would not read bulleted lists in Word formatted using Hollow Arrow bullets.
• When moving in and out of lists in Word 2013 or later, JAWS now announces list level nesting, for instance, "level 1." In addition, if you press INSERT+UP
ARROW to read the current line on a list item, JAWS now announces position information, for example, "2 of 5."
• If an Excel spread sheet contains multiple regions, addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not reading row and column totals.
• Addressed an issue with the background color not being reported correctly in Excel when using the INSERT+F keystroke.
• Added a new JAWS keystroke, CTRL+INSERT+B, for use in an upcoming release of Skype. Once your version of Skype updates, performing this command activates
the Back button in the active conversation so you can return to the Home screen. If this keystroke is not yet working for you, then your version of Skype
has not yet updated.
• The "Spelling buzzer on mistyped words" option is now available in the Quick Settings for the Windows 10 Mail app.
• Resolved instances where JAWS would randomly say "JAWS visual tracking window."
• Addressed a reported issue where the Language combo box in the Dictionary Manager was not showing all available languages.

Frequently Asked Questions
 
Question: Should I remove my existing version of JAWS before installing JAWS 2019?
 
Answer: This is not necessary and many users choose to keep multiple versions on their system. Once you find that you are no longer using the prior version,
and everything is working well with the new version, you may uninstall the old version but do not remove shared components.
 
Question: If I recently received JAWS 2018, how do I get JAWS 2019?
 
Answer: If you purchased JAWS 2018 after September 1, 2018, you can download the JAWS 2019 release for free from the Freedom Scientific website. To verify
if you are entitled to the current version, visit the
SMA and Upgrade Pricing
 page and enter your serial number.
 
Question: If my SMA expires, will I receive a notice?
 
Answer: Customers in the U.S. will receive notification in the mail shortly after the JAWS 2019 release. The envelope will have a Braille label on the
outside, and it will contain an SMA Renewal letter explaining the process in print and Braille. You can also renew your SMA online using the
SMA and Upgrade Pricing
 page on the Freedom Scientific website.

Subject: [TechTalk] downloading Jaws 2019

Hi Everyone:


I tried joining the jaws users list but it failed and came right back to
me. Maybe I got the wrong address or something. I actually got it from
this list. I am not very tech savvy and was wondering if someone could
give me directions on how to download Jaws 2019? I'm currently using
2018 and this disc came in the mail and I didn't know what to do after I
put it in. I want to keep all of my settings from 2018 so how would I
do this? If someone could give me explicit directions, I would greatly
appreciate it. I also use Thunderbird and want to keep those settings.
I also want to keep Jaws on one part of the computer but I don't want it
on regular because that's where someone who can see uses it
occasionally. After I download it, how do I get rid of 2018? Thanks in
advance.

Shelly

David:


Thanks for responding.  I just got the disc a couple of weeks ago so I think I will use that.  When it's installed, when I turn on my computer  will it say Jaws 2018 or Jaws 2019?  How do I merge my settings over from 18 to 19?  Thank you.

Shelly,

I really should have done a better job in processing your last message before I wrote my last response. You said that you received a CD in the mail. Is it the CD for JAWS 2019? If it is and if the process of downloading a file is too daunting then you could just insert the CD into your computer's CD drive and install JAWS 2019 from that disk. However, my guess is that the CD may contain a slightly older version of JAWS 2019 which was released in October and the link that I pointed to in my last message contains a more recent version of 2019 which was released in December. If you feel that you're able to download and install the file from Freedom Scientific's Web site it might be better to do that since you'll be starting out with the very latest version.

Re: Using a radio scanner

Brian K. Lingard
 

Dear Jean & List:

 

Your friend wants to check the web site https://www.radioreference.com

 

This is a database of scanner frequencies in various places, like everywhere.

 

If your friend’s scanner accepts an SD card, he can buy a card preprogrammed for the frequencies in use in his location. Will have railroad, police, fire, weather, everything imaginable, including taxi and paging services.

 

Some paging services are tone only these are dull. Others are voice pagers, where you hear the announcement the pager user hears when someone pages them. Some pagers such as those operated by Telephone Answering Service, with their Pagette pagers; announce the pager number they are paging with each page. After your friend listens to them for a while, they can tell by the pages, someone receives what sort of business they are in and if they are interesting to listen to.

Preprogrammed SD cards sell for a reasonable price. If your friend goes out of town, they can carry a preprogrammed SD card for where they are going.

 

Some scanners can be modified to receive additional trunked radio types. Each modification is typically $20. Your friend can obtain a PDF file of the manual for their scanner by contacting Bearcat, which is a brand of Uniden Electronics. They are a good bunch and will e-mail you are a friend a link to the PDF manual. Your friend can read the PDF document with Word 2010 and up, possibly earlier editions.

 

Alternatively, install the Free Acrobat Reader from Https://www.adobe.com

 

The scanner may have come with a CD with a programming program; there are freeware programming programs on the Radio Reference web site.

 

Happy scanning to your friend. Note that some Police and other organizations scramble their radio transmissions. It is unlawful to try to receive such transmissions un-scrambled. This does not mean you will not find technicians who will modify the scanner to receive such, just that if you are caught doing so, your friend could be in serious trouble with the law.

Hello, 

The scanner is likely not programmed for the frequencies or trunking systems in your friend's area. It must be properly programmed before the services can be accessed.

A friend of mine received a Uniden cb 125 AT scanner for Christmas.  He thought that if he turns it on and presses the scan button, active frequencies would be found.  He does not know what else he needs to do to get the scanner to play and to have presets.  If it is short and simple, will someone who

Thanks for any information.

I have seen people buy computers that are way under powered to much,

Better to do it right the first time.

Just as you can buy too much computer, it is more likely to see someone

From: Marquette, Ed
Brandon:
There is probably some ASCII numeric representation, but I'm not sure what it is.  If you are using Word, there is a setting in Options where you can turn
on smart quotes or curly quotes.  That way open quotation marks slant down and to the left while close quotation marks slope down and to the right.
I think I can find that option, but if it is not Word you are working with, that won't be much help.

Brandon,
 
position your cursor on the reverse quote mark. Press  Numpad 5 three times
quickly and JAWS will speak the ASCII or code equivalent of that character.
 
Now when you want to type it, just turn NumLock on, hold down the Alt key
and press that code as a 4-digit number (use a leading zero as necessary).

Not sure, but first turn on the NumLock, then start using the Alt key and
the digits. Make sure to turn off NumLock again before using the cursor
keys, or you'll start entering digits.

the open quote is 08220 and the closing quote is

entering those numbers on your numpad and then releasing the altkey.

Hey guys.
I know it is possible to make Eloquence behave in a certain way using some special codes.
For instance, I know it's possible to change the pitch of a specific part on a certain text or whatever.
So, do you know where I can get these codes? I would like so much to try it out and see what I can get playing with it.
Thanks in advance

Re: downloading Jaws 2019

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

In my experience, after using the CD to install Jaws, it will come up and say updates are available do you want to download and install them?

The CD should start automatically when it is placed in the drive, but if it doesn't look through the files and find the install .exe file and run that.
