Newer versions of Firefox will not run unsigned ad-ons.  I can't speak for other ad-ons, but you can read about and download a signed version of WebVisum here.

I have heard that both Kurzweil and Open Book pretty much use the Fine Reader and/or Omnipage engines, so we probably likely get the same accuracy of results as if we used either of those programs, unless Kurzweil or Open Book preprocess the images differently somehow to optimize for our specific use.

The only problem with that, is that Jaws doesn’t announce what the key is. The Print Screen key, when located on the Function key row has always been called out when pressed. I recall speaking to Logitech about this matter. They now have a free software available from their website called “Set Point” I believe the name was, and it allows one to customize the keys on the keyboard to perform different functions. The software is totally inaccessible however, and useless for a blind person. They had told me at that time that the key where the applications key usually is, is an unassined key on some of their keyboards now. The key can be made to work as the applications key, but they do not make that particular key for any one specific purpose. I thought that to be kind of rediculous for one key alone on the entire keyboard to not be assigned to anything. I supposed with some sighted help, one could get the key to work as the applications key.

As Carlos said, it's probably an Fn Key if it's on your laptop. The Fn key is usually used with other keys to do things for which you don't have a dedicated key on the laptop - eg change the volume or the screen brightness, or toggle the right half of the letters as a number pad if your laptop doesn't have a dedicated number pad (there are a few Fn key combinations that seem to be fairly common but no real standard to say press FN and this to do that unless we were both working from the same model laptop).

Kind regards

Re: o c r and scanning; was future of screen read market

Olusegun -- Victory Associates LTD, Inc.
 

Bavya, one can potentially scan an entire book without having to turn the
pages one at a time; however, to do so this, I believe two things need to
happen:

First, the cover of the book MUST BE removed.

Second, one must have a scanner with an automatic document (ADF) feeder. I
do have an all-in-one printer at work that holds up to 35 pages in the
included scanner's ADF. The good thing about this all-in-one is that it has
the capability of scanning both sides of a page at once! As such, you don't
have to reload the pages to scan the reversed sides.

The downside, one needs sighted assistance for the initial set up since
there are no TALKING MENUS on the said device. There will also be a need
for memorialisation of the different buttons. One could probably write down
the various key functions in Braille and use that as a cheat sheet, but I've
been horridly too lazy to get down to brass tacks!

I've never heard or seen a scanner that can turn the page of a book
regardless of whether or not the book binding is intact. Now there are some
camera devices that I believe allow one to turn the pages of a book one at a
time, but this can be labour-intensive. I am trying to enquire about these
types of cameras; I believe Openbook and the EyePal are some examples.

Re: o c r and scanning; was future of screen read market

Hi Jeremy,
Not sure if was addressed to me, but I'll respond none the less...
My conception has very much to do with my own practical challenges in
life. proofreading, editing and rectification of mistakes is anyways a
very time consuming and laborious task for the sighted person
converting my hard copy text books in e-format (usually my mother).
The first of the two processes, scanning, to the maximum extent
possible, as it did seem possible to me, should perhaps be simplified.
Non destructive scanners would assist in scanning the whole of one
page, or two depending on needs, and not miss or extraneously include
part of the respective page near the centre of the binding or of the
page beside. This thought was furthered when my mom had to re-scan
some pages because the previous attempt had yielded very poor results,
missing parts of the page which weren't able to be properly placed on
the scanner glass.
Thanks.

Press Windows context menu key or press Shift F10.

Down arrow to 7Zip submenu then right arrow to show options.

Pick from available options, but you will likely want to press enter on

A new folder should be created with the name of the file, and focus will

I could even send you the file that I need to unzip, if you would like.

Grab a copy of 7zip from 7-zip.org and that will open just about any
compressed format you want.

I am fairly confident "Extract here" is a Windows function and has nothing
to do with 7zip. Someone not running 7zip will have to confirm this fact. :)

Depending on how 7-Zip is configured, the items may not be in a submenu.
Look for items such as
"Extract Here"
and
"Extract to Subfolder"
with subfolder being the name of the file you are extracting.

Hi Jeremy,

This did not work. After highlighting the file and pressing Windows
context
menu key and tried pressing Shift F10, 7zip submenu was not found in the
context menu. Thank you for trying to help.

Hi Veronica,

Try this....

Highlight the file.

Press Windows context menu key or press Shift F10.

Down arrow to 7Zip submenu then right arrow to show options.

Pick from available options, but you will likely want to press enter on
the
3rd or 4th option which has the file name. Press enter to begin the
extraction process.

A new folder should be created with the name of the file, and focus will
likely be placed in the folder so you can up and down arrow through the
extracted files.

Hi Rob,

Thank you for the suggestion. I have downloaded 7zip, but unless I have
explicit instructions I am not very savvy about how to use a lot of
different programs and this one seems to be a problem for me. If you
would
please could you send me instructions as to how to unzip the RAR file,
maybe off list so we would not clutter up the list. My e-mail address is
veronicaakirk@gmail.com

I could even send you the file that I need to unzip, if you would like.

Veronica
