Re: keyboard layout and desktop lay out jaws question

I’ve tried every basic procedure that I could think of including the one you just mentioned and also in the previous email before I sent off my question.

I do not have admin rights to perform a jaws repair, as this is a school laptop.

 

Best regards,

Normally that combobox is open for me, but just for testing purposes did you try opening the combobox with the, Alt + down arrow, keystroke?  If the other 2 keyboards aren't showing you might have to repair Jaws or reinstall.

Hi,

I was using a laptop that had no number pad. I went under the start up options, looked to change it over to the laptop layout.

It only shows desktop layout.

Why is it not showing laptop layout in the combo box?

 

Thank you,

Re: keyboard layout and desktop lay out jaws question

David Moore
 

Hello! The best way to find the keyboard layout, is to open the main Jaws windows, and click on options, you need to get to the general settings where the start Jaws automatically and those settings are. As you tab through those settings, you should find a laptop or desktop layout mode. If that does not work, you can start up the Jaws wizard oh, that guide you through setting up many options. The laptop layout mode is there as well. I use the laptop layout mode all the time. I like using the letter keys to do my navigation with jaws and stuff instead of having my right hand on the numpad and then having to go back to the keyboard. Also, for some reason, I can even type faster when keys are bunched together, and the keyboard is smaller like on a small netbook. I know that is the opposite of what most Jaws users like. also, other screen readers, such as narrator and NVDA do not use the numpad as much. Many more key commands are done on the main part of the keyboard, so it is easy to learn, and it is good to get used to not having the number pad in case you use other screen readers. Also, it really helps getting used to working on a phone with a very small little on-screen keyboard at the bottom.

Hello Fanus,

I contacted the Amazon Support Staff today, and here is what they told me.

Because I did not have your full name, or your Mailing Address, they
could not open your Account, and so they could only give me advice to
pass to you.

What they said was that the Book you have, if you happened to purchase
while you were in the United States, and then attempted to download and
read it once back home in your own country, the Book may not transfer
correctly.

They also said, perhaps you may have an older copy of one of their Books
that has yet to be Updated to correctly be read in the Kindle for PC for
the Blind. The person I was speaking with reluctantly told me there
still ware Kindle Books that still needed to be updated.

What this means is that "Some Day" there may be an Update for your Book,
and at that time it should be compatible with your Kindle for PC program.

What you can do to make sure you have the latest updates for any Books,
is to start up Kindle for PC and go to the TOOLS Menu and then Arrow
down to Sync and Check for Updates

By doing this, if there are any updates for any Book you have previously
purchased, those are to be downloaded to your System at that time.

And if none of the above fixes the problem, they told me that you would
need to go to the Amazon Web site, and Log In, and then go to their Help
section, and engage in a Chat Session with someone who would then get
your personal information and be able to open your Account, and then be
able to Help you.



That was the best they could do for me about the troubles concerning the
Book you purchased.

Looks like you have a couple of things that you can try, and hopefully
one of those will end with the Book being able to work in your System.

<Slight laugh> It always seems to be something doesn't it?

reminds me of my own recent Book purchase. I bought a Book about
learning to Program in Python. And it is a very good book. The only
problem was that when ever there were examples of Code given, the Author
had used Photos of Screen Shots to display his Code. I suppose I could
have attempted to use the JAWS OCR Feature, but I didn't really want to
Jump through those kinds of Hoops just to get some examples of Code.
Plus there were lots of examples, and I don't know how accurate the OCR
results would be.

I learned from my mistake and now have Amazon send me a Sample of the
Book before I make the purchase.

Another Hoop to Jump through, but much easier than messing with
converting several hundred photos into Text.

Bye for now,

Grumpy Dave

Re: My Outlook Express is no longer working with my gmail accounts

I should say that I don't know if the problem has been fully corrected. Reentering passwords seems to solve the problem and it may not have earlier, which suggests a partial correction but it may not be fully corrected until people who didn't reenter their passwords no longer have to.

Unfortunately I don’t think there are guides for using Linux from  a screen reader user’s perspective. As for getting help, I think the best thing would be to start by going to lists.ubuntu.com look for the accessibility list and subscribe. Good luck!
