Hey Reed!

 

Good thinking/searching. Surprised this key wasn’t assigned. I got it. Still not sure it’s going to do what I want, though. Oh well. I’m learning. *grins*…

Hey JM,

 

I think I found it!

 

Hit Insert+F2 for the run JAWS Manager

Select the Keyboard Manager

Select Default and press Enter

Tab over to the list of commands,

Down-arrow to BrailleToggle8PixelsPerSpace and you will see that no shortcut is assigned,

Assign your own shortcut.

Hey.

 

I believe I found the same user guide. I am not looking for the six to eight dot toggle. This is a command that, as far as I know, pertains to how JAWS estimates the use of space on the braille display. It is mentioned in the braille section of the help topics, and it is advised that you can switch to “unlimited” if you have occasional issues with white space on the display. I used to know this command, in fact, on the Seika, and I can’t remember if there was an appropriate way to switch it in settings/using the JAWS menus, but I feel like there was. Although the braille section of the manual does mention this toggle, it frustratingly doesn’t actually tell you what the command is … or at least, not that I can see. I’ve looked in both the Focus manual and the list of keystrokes for this display given in the same Braille help tpics. Nothing going. I’ve used the find feature in all cases.

You are probably right, I wasn’t paying attention, I looked up changing between 8-dot and 6-dot braille on a Focus 40 Blue.  I found the user guide on the web by just googling “focus 40 user guide.) To switch between 6-dot and 8-dot braille use cord dots 2, 3, 6.

 

I hope that is closer to the mark!

I wonder if JM is referring to dots in a cell, pins that is, and not pixels on the screen.

I don't think pixels would correctly refer to Braille pins on a Braille display.

Hi,

 

I am not completely sure I understand what you are asking, but try JAWS setting center under miscellaneous. There are pixel settings in there. I know, I used to use them to adjust the spacing in the old wonderful WordPerfect.

Hope that helps!

Hi.

 

I used to know this because I remember pressing a two=key combinati on the Seika braille display I was using at work at the time

Now I have a Focus 40 and I cannot find this toggle anywhere. I have found a few allusions to it online. I’ve tried the JAWS command search and only come up with useless results (I seriously don’t think this feature is even working properly). I’m using JAWS 2018. Any ideas?
