Hi all. This is a Microsoft issue, and is related to the Bing search
engine. I have heard that they are working on a resolution to this
issue, and it may be sent out as a patch update. Stay tuned, and sorry
for the inconvenience. It's driving me crazy. I never realized how
much I rely on it.

RECOMMENDATIONS for annimated greeting card website, anyone?

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

My nephew donated a kidney to his dad, my brother yesterday. So I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a clean, accessible site where I can get funny animated greeting cards, including a get-well category? I've thought of Blindfold Greeting Cards, but I'd like to be able to share the kinds that are visually appealing.

Thanks, for any input,


Is it hard to communicate, even with hearing aids? Visit

Re: baseball's game day audio

Karim Lakhani
 

Hi,
I tried the at bat app. in my opinion it's easier then the web version.
from what I can tell, one year audio will be 27.00, so for Canadians it will depend on the conversion how much it will be.
Looking forward to it, it helps getting rid of the winter blues.
have a nice day.

hi troy:

I had to do this just a few weeks ago.

you must go into your account and you must go to the add new credit card
link and treat it as if you are adding a new credit card.

my card's expiration date had changed, so, as in the past, I thought you
could just change the expiration date.

now, that is no longer possible.

then, after you do this, you can delete your old credit card info.

it will know for sure this march if I can still get gameday audio for the
coming season, since my account is set up for automatic renewal.

I need to update my credit card information so I can be charged next

Re: Drop box.

Gene
 

That's an interesting question and I'm not sure what you should do.  the Dropbox program monitors the folder in a certain place on a certain drive.  If you open the program and it doesn't see a folder where it looks, I don't know if it will create one and download all the files to it, or if it will delete the folders and files you currently have in the online storage. 
 
We'll see what others say.  I may write more later, depending on what others say.

    I have been updating my 2011 computer; i now have a 500GB SSD,
solid state drive; and a 4 TB drive inside the computer.

My drop box landed on the SSD.  that is fine.  But I tried to put it
onto the 4TB drive.

So I have an instance of it on the solid state drive, and also on the
4tb drive.

The 4tb drive doesn't seem to be working; that is, the drop box program
does not seem to be doing anything on the 4tb drive.

May i safely get rid of that, and just continue to use the one on the
solid state drive?

Remember, I'm not a whizz, i'm just an old computer user.

Thanks.

Hi George,

I purchased game day audio originally through the computer though, can I still update the info through the at bat app and if so how? I went into the FAQ under game day audio and all I've found so far is where it talks about is if the purchase was through the app.

Re: Drop box.

Steve Matzura
 

Get it off the solid state drive. If your Dropbox is big, or could potentially become big, or is active, you're wasting space and writes for no reason by keeping it on the SSD. The Dropbox application has an automatic facility to move its storage to wherever you want it to be. Use that function to move your Dropbox folder to your large-capacity drive. It's totally transparent to the user and always works. To do it:


1. Open the Dropbox application located in the system tray, or if you're on a Mac, from the Dropbox Extras menu.

2. Choose "Access and manage your Dropbox settings" from the menu.

3. Move to the "Sync" tab.

4. Activate the "Move..." button and follow the prompts.

Recently bought my $500 braille me display

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,
I recently bought my braille me display for the sale price of $499 from www.atguys.com ... I got it just in time because the price went up to $531 plus $9 shipping and I got mine for $499 plus $9 shipping. So I will write the list and let you know how I like it when it arrives this afternoon in the mail. I got one back in early 2018 two years ago and returned it shortly after I got it because the pins rattled around inside and it had many braille dot issues so I got my money back for that one back in early 2018. I can't wait to play with this new improved one and I have some ideas as to how to maybe get the braille me to work with jaws so I will try that as well. Even though it says the braille me does not work with jaws? I may be able to prove them wrong and make it work so we'll see what happens with that.

Thank you for responding.  I wasn't sure if this was even possible.  I am thinking that I may have someone who is sighted take a picture of the photo in my messages on the computer from my phone like a screen shot and then maybe I could post it then.  If not, oh well!  Take care.

Re: Need Ideas for Bluetooth Speaker

Michael Rodgerson
 

Lisa, I have a JBL clip 3, it is a nice small speaker, it only has 5
buttons on it, 2 for volume, a play-paws, 1 for pairing and 1 is
power. I don't know how much it is as I got it for a Christmas gift.
It sounds really good.

February Jaws2020.2001.70 Build Download Link + What's New

Mike B
 

Hi All,
 
Below is the direct download link for the latest J2020 February build update.
For both 32 & 64 bit systems:
 
 
What's new in this release:
 
Enhancements
 Enhancements in JAWS 2020.2001.70 (February 2020)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the December 2019 release and the February 2020 update.
 
list of 20 items
• Addressed issues using JAWS and Fusion with the new Microsoft Edge Chromium Browser released in January 2020. Notable fixes include reviewing text in
Edit Controls and the Address Bar as well as a possible loss of speech and braille output.
• Added a new JAWS Settings Center option called "Skip Blank Lines While Navigating" which is on by default when reading web pages and PDF documents. This
feature helps make reading more efficient as JAWS and Fusion ignores blank lines as you navigate using UP and DOWN ARROW. For those who prefer to hear
blank lines while navigating, open Settings Center (INSERT+6) and clear this check box. You can find this new option in the Web / HTML / PDF group under
Reading.
• Changed the Highlight Tracking used in JAWS when navigating web pages or PDF documents with the Virtual Cursor from a Green Block to a Red Box to match
ZoomText and Fusion. To further customize the settings used for visually highlighting text as you navigate, open Settings Center and expand the Visual
Tracking group.
• When reading comments in Word documents, JAWS now also reads any reply comments. For instance, if you are focused on a comment that contains a reply,
pressing ALT+SHIFT+APOSTROPHE now reads both the original comment followed by the reply.
• When using Say All (INSERT+DOWN ARROW) to read a book in the Kindle for PC application, resolved a customer reported issue where JAWS or Fusion would
repeat the last line after reaching the end.
• Added a new Quick Settings option called "Blank Cell Announcement" for JAWS and Fusion that is available when using Excel. By default, when you encounter
empty cells as you navigate spreadsheets, you hear "blank" followed by the cell coordinates. Turn off this option if you only want to hear the coordinates
of empty cells, making speech less verbose as you navigate.
• Removed the "Microsoft Edge Browser Support" option from JAWS Settings Center as it is no longer needed. This control was required in order to use the
original Edge browser that is being removed from Windows 10 by Microsoft and replaced by the new Chromium version of Edge released in January 2020.
• Added the ability for JAWS and Fusion to properly recognize and report both Column Span and Row Span info in HTML tables where information might span
over 2 or more cells.
• For JAWS installations licensed using one of the new portal licenses that is tied to an email address, the status line of the JAWS window now only displays
the expiration date for the license. The About dialog box will display additional license information including the users email Address, expiration date,
and the serial number.
• Resolved a reported issue where a customer was not able to properly migrate settings from an earlier version.
• Addressed an issue where typing Contracted Braille very quickly using a Braille keyboard would sometimes cause text to appear in gibberish. This was
observed primarily when typing in Office applications and when exporting text from the Scratchpad on Focus displays into an open Office document.
• Resolved a long standing issue where attempting to select and delete multiple words in a row using a Braille keyboard was not working as expected in
Word and Outlook.
• When typing into a Word document using Contracted Braille, resolved an issue where immediately backspacing over a word and typing a replacement word
would result in duplicate text on the current line.
• Added support for 3 African Languages (Sotho, Xhosa, and Zulu) when using Convenient OCR in JAWS and Fusion.
• Resolved a reported issue with TreeViews in Eclipse not reading as expected using speech. Braille support for these controls will be addressed in a future
update.
• All JAWS Flexible Web Rules created for 1 chromium based Browser will now apply for any other browser that also uses Chromium. For example, if you create
a Flexible Web Rule in Chrome, it will also apply for the new Microsoft Edge Chromium Browser.
• Resolved an issue where FSReader would become unresponsive when opening a very large DAISY book.
• Added a function for web application scripts that helps JAWS ignore the role="application" attribute when a web author has used it incorrectly. This
was reported by ONCE in Spain and was related to SAP web-based applications.
• Resolved a reported issue from Once in Spain where opening very large messages in Outlook 365 with lots of nested levels was causing JAWS and Outlook
to stop responding.
• Added Color Settings options to the View menu in the Script Manager to help users who have issues viewing certain colors, for instance, red/green color
blindness.
