Re: Teresa Reply - Focus 14 Braille unit

No, my friend does not have JAWS. His computer is a 3rd-party Mac. It
very much appears that he has to be able to do this from the Braille
unit itself.
Thanks,
Nance

Re: Teresa Reply - Focus 14 Braille unit

Teresa Arroyo Llosa
 

Hello,

Have you got JAWS on your computer? If so, go to the setting center and select default. Then go to braille and you will find the different settings for your display. There is one that will let you change from eight to six-dot, but I don't remember which item it is. You will have to explore. I suppose NVDA has the same options, but I use JAWS, so I don't know how it works in that Screen reader. I have a PC, so I don't know if apple has a different way in screenreader functioning.

As to leaving your display on, if it is connected to your computer with a USB cable then, it should turn on or off depending on if your computer is on or off. If you mean, having it on if the computer is on, the dots of the cells will stand up after a certain amount of time (you can set that time in your display's settings.

I hope this helps.

Teresa Arroyo

Asunto: [TechTalk] Teresa Reply - Focus 14 Braille unit

From my friend with the Focus 14:
I don’t have my Focus 14 paired to my Apple Mac Mini computer. It’s hooked up with a USB Cable. And the 8 cord didn’t change it from 8 to
6 dots. This is considered a third party product, and the instructions said that this device might not function as it should.
So I think that I’ll have to learn how to read what I need to read in the 8 dot mode. However I was reading some text on one of the stations site that I do an internet rare oldies show for last night.
And the display wasn’t showing in 8 dot mode. But when I went back to my Mac Mini, 8 dot returned.
Can I leave my display on all the time without doing damage to it?
Thanks for your help.

Well being as you already have Echo devices, going the Amazon route would make more sense.

I ended up having to update to eleven. Then, something happened and I had to go back to ten. Then, I was able to go to eleven again when the problem got fixed; I forget what it was, it was so long ago. Pam.

The quick way to check your version is, with Internet Explorer open press,

The latest version of Internet Explorer is Version 11.00.9600.19597







To make sure your IE11 updates automatically, with IE11 open press, Alt + H,

Now you're probably at the bottom of the page, so up arrow to hear, Install

Having 2 different versions of ponts media downloader?

Vicky Vaughan
 

Hi List, Just as I can have both Jaws 2020 and 2021 on my Windows 10 computer, can I have both versions of ponts media downloader 2.0 and 3.2 on my computer and just choose which 1 to run?  This seems as if it could be advisable, since people here seem to be saying that there are advantages to each under differing circumstances?

 

Thanks very much!

Try going to Windows Update and check for updates. Your IE is way behind. IE8 was even an old version for XP, if I'm not mistaken IE in XP was at either IE9 or 10 before XP wasn't supported any more.

Hi Veronica,







The quick way to check your version is, with Internet Explorer open press, Insert, control + V, and Jaws will report...



The latest version of Internet Explorer is Version 11.00.9600.19597







To make sure your IE11 updates automatically, with IE11 open press, Alt + H, to open Help then press the letter, A, to open About.



Now you're probably at the bottom of the page, so up arrow to hear, Install new versions automatically checkbox, make sure this is checked and if it isn't check it with the spacebar.




Stay safe and take care. Mike.

Thanks to all of you for the advice. I don't want to do anything to disturb
my windows 7 computer, as this is my main computer for most things even
though I have a windows 10. So Internet Explorer is here to stay, even
though I am going to use MS Edge. However, I think I somehow deleted an
update to Internet Explorer, and I am wondering how would I go about finding
what version I have of Internet Explorer?

You shouldn't do it. the user isn't given the option to do so in
addd/Remove programs. It isn't just a browser, parts of it are used in
Windows itself. Programs usually don't take that mudch room and there is no
reason to worry about deleting programs unless you have a lot of them you
never use.

Try going to Windows Update and check for updates.  Your IE is way behind.  IE8 was even an old version for XP, if I'm not mistaken IE in XP was at either IE9 or 10 before XP wasn't supported any more.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hmmm. If you go to help is there a check for update thing?

Wow if you’re running 8 you seriously need to upgrade to 11.

MS  Edge works pretty good on Windows 7, I’m using it as my main browser now having used firefox before.

I do use IE for one or two sites that don’t like the combo of JAWS and edge but this is not often.

Use alt h then a to open the help dialog.  That is the way to find the version of most programs.
