I also did not notice that we are using different Cannon scanners.  After I plugged in your model number, I got the same answer that you did.
 
But, I found what might be some help at Microsoft Community.  Take a look.  Good luck.

Hi,
 
Around 4 or 5 years ago, Freedom Scientific tried to sell me some kind of a camera for scanning because my Cannon scanner wouldn’t work with my newly upgraded Windows 10.  I think the link below will allow you to find and download drivers and software for most of the older Cannon scanners.  Including for Windows 10.  Both architectures.
 
Note, My scanner model is:
 
CanoScan LiDE 220

Hi,

Using Windows 7 64 and latest Jaws.

I have Open Book installed, but it is not recognizing my Canon Scanner.

It is an N650U.

I tried to find drivers at Canon.com, but they said that there are no drivers for my OS, that they are not needed.

I looked in control panel scanners and cameras, and it shows up there.

So I'm wondering, Does the latest Jaws have the ability to utilize a scanner to do OCR?

I know I could probably use another program to take a photo and use the Jaws cursor on that, but I would prefer to avoid that extra part.

Otherwise, does anyone know how I can get the OB to find my scanner?

Thanks.

Glenn

Re: activating a "clickable" link

Hi Mike,
 
I don’t want it to be ignored, just simplified, so I set the spoken message to be shorter then the one defaulted to.
 
It’s just distracting to hear clickable or on mouse-over, especially if the page is heavy with those types of links.
 
Besides, those links may contain some crucial information I need, and in most cases, they aren’t there for decoration.  LOL.

There is also a way to modify what Jaws says when it encounters links of
this nature.

I've done the same with Mouse-over links also.

You may shorten the notification message to mouse or click link instead of
Jaws saying clickable and mouse-over.

You can do this within the speech and sounds schemes in the settings center.
Make sure you select the default settings file with control+shift+D so the
settings take with all browsers.

Select the classic sound scheme, then arrow down to modify and press the
spacebar.

In the resulting dialog box, make sure the classic scheme is selected, then
tab to edit.

Another dialog will open, in that dialog box, control+tab over to the HTML
tab, and arrow down to the appropriate speech attribute.  For the clickable
links, the attribute will say "onclick", so once selected, tab down to the
edit field and type in what you want it to say.  If you wish to change the
mouse-over links as well, shift+tab back up to the list of attributes once
you've made the change above, then arrow down one to "onmouseover", then
repeat the steps above.

Once you're done making all the changes you want to make, tab to the ok
button.  Once the dialog box disappears, the previous dialog box will pop
up.  At this point, you want to make sure you save the classic sound scheme
you just made changes to, so tab to the save sound scheme, press your
spacebar, then tab to the ok button and hit enter or spacebar.

A dialog box will pop up asking you if you want the modified classic sound
scheme to be your new sound scheme, so, tab to the yes button and press
enter.

Once done, you should land back on the settings center window, so tab to the
apply button and you're good to go.

This is a permanent change and effects all applications, so, if you want to
change it back, make sure you select the default file when re-opening up the
settings center to change things back.

Hope this helps.

Victor

Under

"Miscellaneous"

there is a setting labeled

Unchecking this setting will stop Jaws from saying

Although I would not recommend this since there are times when you will miss

Re: File counting with JAWS

Victor Gouveia <victor.gouveia@...>
 

Hi Mike,
 
In my case, no matter how many files are in the folder, if it’s less then 24, then Jaws will pronounce the positional information correctly, but over 24 files in a folder, and I should re-state that, I do mean items, and not just files only, as it occurs for both, but yes, when the item count in a folder is larger than 24, then Jaws will report a number lower than 24, with the total number of files being 24.
 
Once or twice, the item count has climbed to 33, but those are few and far between.  The state of the window doesn’t make a difference either, because no matter what, maximized or restored, the count will always be the same.
 
I’ve learned to deal with it by using the read status line command of insert+page down, but sometimes it would be nice if this feature would work like in the old days of Jaws.

Yes, you can check the status line as you suggest to get the total number of files in a folder.  But sometimes you might want to know that a file was 150 of 300, for example, if you were trying to divide files and had only limited space left, as on a nearly full thumb drive.  Of course you could also select files and do a size check of them all under properties, but the count is just a quick way to “guesstimate” what could go where.

Also, not a criticism, but those of us who used Window-Eyes had this information at our fingertips as we arrowed down through the file or folder list. 

File name, 4 of 69, file name 47 of 69, etc. We did not have to read the current line to get it.  If you didn’t want or need the count, you just arrowed through the list quickly, pressed the first letter of the file name you wanted, or just did a search.  So it was never a verbosity issue.  Narrator gives the count both in terms of the position in what’s on the screen and the position in the total number of files in the folder.

Why not just check the status line like I suggested?

Your file count should be there, reported accurately by windows, not JAWS, which – ok, I don’t know how it gets the information re. list views, but again I would suggest that it might have trouble seeing more than what’s already being displayed at times. I’d only be theorising though. However it is a fact that jAWS does not always accurately report the number of items. We should just do what sighted people do though, in this case.

Chris,

 

You make complete sense. It’s a recognized flaw in JAWS. In some areas, it can count files accurately (think of email messages) but not in others. Rebecca, a contributor to this list, has pointed out that you can get the counts you need by bringing up Narrator. Remember, you open and close Narrator with control-Windows key-enter.

Subject: [jaws-users] File counting with JAWS

 

Hello All,

 

I am sorry, to ask for help with file counting with JAWS, as I have asked before, and cannot find the response I got before.

 

This is a recurring problem, but not all the time. I have a number of files either in a folder, or on a different drive. But the count will only go up to 33 even if there is over 100. What are the steps to get a full count?

 

I hope this makes some sort of sense to someone.

 

Regards

 

Chris


Re: activating a "clickable" link

Victor Gouveia <victor.gouveia@...>
 

There is also a way to modify what Jaws says when it encounters links of this nature.

I've done the same with Mouse-over links also.

You may shorten the notification message to mouse or click link instead of Jaws saying clickable and mouse-over.

You can do this within the speech and sounds schemes in the settings center. Make sure you select the default settings file with control+shift+D so the settings take with all browsers.

Select the classic sound scheme, then arrow down to modify and press the spacebar.

In the resulting dialog box, make sure the classic scheme is selected, then tab to edit.

Another dialog will open, in that dialog box, control+tab over to the HTML tab, and arrow down to the appropriate speech attribute. For the clickable links, the attribute will say "onclick", so once selected, tab down to the edit field and type in what you want it to say. If you wish to change the mouse-over links as well, shift+tab back up to the list of attributes once you've made the change above, then arrow down one to "onmouseover", then repeat the steps above.

Once you're done making all the changes you want to make, tab to the ok button. Once the dialog box disappears, the previous dialog box will pop up. At this point, you want to make sure you save the classic sound scheme you just made changes to, so tab to the save sound scheme, press your spacebar, then tab to the ok button and hit enter or spacebar.

A dialog box will pop up asking you if you want the modified classic sound scheme to be your new sound scheme, so, tab to the yes button and press enter.

Once done, you should land back on the settings center window, so tab to the apply button and you're good to go.

This is a permanent change and effects all applications, so, if you want to change it back, make sure you select the default file when re-opening up the settings center to change things back.

Hope this helps.

Victor

what good is clickables when every web page i go to would have hundreds of so

Hi Net bat,

Try looking in the following:



From: Carlos via BlindTech

In

"Settings Center"

under the

"Web / HTML / PDFs"

category, there is a subcategory labeled

"Miscellaneous"

Under

"Miscellaneous"

there is a setting labeled

"Indicate Element Attribute"

Unchecking this setting will stop Jaws from saying

"Clickable"

Although I would not recommend this since there are times when you will miss

out on elements of webpages that may be useful and are clickable.

Carlos

Help! I've been through the jaws helf files, googled, and tried everything I
can think of to activate things on a website labeled "clickable".

I've got jaws 18, chrome and/or IE11, and Win 7. I go to the netflix website
and search a show I want. No problem. They've improved. I want season 3, not
season 1. It says "seasons clickable".

I have tried enter, shift enter, control enter, insert+ each of those,
insert control / and the mouse click on the keypad both with the virtual
cursor and the jaws cursor. I'm obviously missing something because none of
those commands does anything to the clickable. It just sits there and looks
back at me. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Karen

Yes, you can check the status line as you suggest to get the total number of files in a folder.  But sometimes you might want to know that a file was 150 of 300, for example, if you were trying to divide files and had only limited space left, as on a nearly full thumb drive.  Of course you could also select files and do a size check of them all under properties, but the count is just a quick way to “guesstimate” what could go where.

Also, not a criticism, but those of us who used Window-Eyes had this information at our fingertips as we arrowed down through the file or folder list. 

File name, 4 of 69, file name 47 of 69, etc. We did not have to read the current line to get it.  If you didn’t want or need the count, you just arrowed through the list quickly, pressed the first letter of the file name you wanted, or just did a search.  So it was never a verbosity issue.  Narrator gives the count both in terms of the position in what’s on the screen and the position in the total number of files in the folder.

Why not just check the status line like I suggested?

Your file count should be there, reported accurately by windows, not JAWS, which – ok, I don’t know how it gets the information re. list views, but again I would suggest that it might have trouble seeing more than what’s already being displayed at times. I’d only be theorising though. However it is a fact that jAWS does not always accurately report the number of items. We should just do what sighted people do though, in this case.

Re: auto ducking issue

Hi John,
 
See if turning Audio Ducking on in the Settings Center will help.  To do this:
1. Open the Settings Center with the keystroke, Insert / Jaws key + 6, on the number row, and press, Control, Shift + D, to open the Settings Center default all applications.
2. Down arrow to, User, and right arrow to open.
3. Down arrow to, Lower audio volume of programs when Jaws speaks, and press the spacebar to check this box.
4. Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close.
Something else you could try is exporting the settings on the 1 computer where everything works correctly and importing the settings on the other computer.

you can use the keystroke, windows-key+up-arrow key, this will maximize the screen.

also, while inside a message, if you press alt-key+#5, you should hear the subjectline  

if you use the alt key with #1 through #6, you should get some information back. way easier than tabbing or shift+tabbing.

Adrian:

 

Thanks for confirming this Jaws flaw regarding accurate file counting.

 

I have noticed it especially with Windows 10 and Jaws 2019.

 

I’ll try the Narrator option.

Chris,

 

You make complete sense. It’s a recognized flaw in JAWS. In some areas, it can count files accurately (think of email messages) but not in others. Rebecca, a contributor to this list, has pointed out that you can get the counts you need by bringing up Narrator. Remember, you open and close Narrator with control-Windows key-enter.

Hello All,

 

I am sorry, to ask for help with file counting with JAWS, as I have asked before, and cannot find the response I got before.

 

This is a recurring problem, but not all the time. I have a number of files either in a folder, or on a different drive. But the count will only go up to 33 even if there is over 100. What are the steps to get a full count?

 

I hope this makes some sort of sense to someone.

 

Regards

 

Chris
