You didn't give us much information that we can work with.
What is it that isn't working for you?

no, I only got the decTalk speak-window notePad apps to work on a windows10 computer. With those, you can make decTalk sing. Just do a google search for decTalk flameOfHope and you will find them.

Has anyone had experience with sig tags and Jaws?

Judy Jones
 

I just first heard about them this evening, and I am curious. There is a lady on another e-mail list I am on who creates them and customizes them for people, and I was wondering if any blind people are doing that, can do that, and how it is done. 

 

Since I’ve discovered emojipedia, I love the imagery and creativity.  How far can blind people and software take it?

select language hotkey in laptop layout (addendum)

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

Okay folks, this is triply weird! My select language hotkey now works because I copied y desktop default.jkm to my laptop. I had defined the hotkey on both machines, but it had only worked on the desktop. What could the desktop's .jkm file contain that would allow that hotkey to work, as opposed to the laptop?

select language hotkey in laptop layout

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

Hi all. Thankss to all thee recent discussions about JAWS keyboard layouts, I decided that since my laptop has only a right windows key, I could benefit from having capslock as a modifier key. Except that I now have a perplexing problem. The "select language" script has no assigned key, so I assigned it to control+modifier+L. That combination works on my desktop but not on my laptop. But every other hotkey using the modifier works for me using either capslock or insert. When I first tried that key combination, JAWS gave me new conflict errors. I also tried deleting and reassigning the keystroke. There is therefore no good reason why this keystroke doesn't bring up the language list as it should. In fact, it doesn't even work using insert rather than capslock.. Any ideas?

Hi Josh,

 

I can't answer your question about the decTalk synthesizer, but as far as the graphics, make sure your settings are set to read labeled graphics.  If you're settings are set to read labeled graphics you'll then have label the graphics yourself, Jaws does have this ability.

Hi,Does the latest jaws still work with the decTalk access32 speech synthesizer?

And also, I have several decTalk speak windows. These are notepad-type applications with built in decTalk so you can make it sing and stuff. Anyway using the jaws cursor on windows 10 32bit I cannot see the graphics for the play button and other controls with the jaws cursor. These speak windows came out around 1996 or so. The only one whose edit box works is the version 4.3 decTalk speak window.

Eventually I got a prompt indicating that I was at a certain numbered location and that another location was number 673 and it had a higher number. I was asked if I wanted to go to that higher nmber and when I said yes, the PC jumped to the same spot as was on my iPhone.
But it took a while and I think i also had my iPhone open as well which made the sync possible.

the insert key. i guess fs dropped the name jaws key to describe this jaws modifier key.
it also depends on which keyboard layout you use.
jaws uses the insert key on the 6 pack for the desktop keyboard. the laptop layout uses the caps lock key.
if you press insert 1 this will turn on and off the keyboard help and you can try all the key combonations to see what they do.
if you double press the keys that have a description it will give you more info.

Hi Michelle and List,

 

While I have no experience with the Pathways to Literary site you linked, I can confirm that I was able to download the lessons in one 89-page PDF file from that site with no charge. I'll leave it to you to decide whether the lessons help you learn JAWS.

 

I would strongly recommend you create a JAWS shortcut key file to have a reference of the hotkeys you use most frequently with JAWS. I have found that Microsoft Excel works best for maintaining tabular data since it can easily be sorted and can be configured to read column headings and row titles with JAWS. I am constantly opening my Excel file to refresh my memory of hotkeys I use most frequently. I would also urge you to monitor this list daily. I've gotten the majority of my JAWS training from reading posts here and making notes of the hotkeys learned here.

 

Good luck with your learning.

Hi everyone,

 

Thank you for all your very helpful responses about whether to purchase an external keyboard with a num pad for my laptop.  I have decided to go ahead and teach myself JAWS with the laptop commands instead of the desk top commands.  We will see how it goes- big smile!

 

I found this online guide to learning JAWS with laptop commands put out by an organization called Pathways to Literary.  Is anyone familiar with this organization? At first perusal, the guide looks very helpful for beginners like me and here is the link:

 

 

I am listening to the beginner audio tutorials from JAWS which are helpful, but seem dated with their references to DVD installations and JAWS version 9 and so forth. Not sure why a more current version is unavailable, but perhaps it is not necessary as the basic commands do not vary much over time.

 

Thanks again for all your assistance. It is much appreciated.

 

Regards, Michelle

Subject: [jaws-users] Pathways to Literary- Laptop Command Guide

 

Hi everyone,

 

Thank you for all your very helpful responses about whether to purchase an external keyboard with a num pad for my laptop.  I have decided to go ahead and teach myself JAWS with the laptop commands instead of the desk top commands.  We will see how it goes- big smile!

 

I found this online guide to learning JAWS with laptop commands put out by an organization called Pathways to Literary.  Is anyone familiar with this organization? At first perusal, the guide looks very helpful for beginners like me and here is the link:

 

 

I am listening to the beginner audio tutorials from JAWS which are helpful, but seem dated with their references to DVD installations and JAWS version 9 and so forth. Not sure why a more current version is unavailable, but perhaps it is not necessary as the basic commands do not vary much over time.

 

Thanks again for all your assistance. It is much appreciated.

 

Regards, Michelle

1 last quick note on this laptop keyboard thing though. Even if you do set it to laptop and use the laptop strokes when and if ever you do use either a external wired or wireless keyboard you could use the desktop key strokes as well. only thing will be is the tapping the caps lock 2 times to either turn it on or off since it is now a JAWS key too.

Thanks Michelle, that does look like a good resource.  I noticed a reference to Perkins School and did not find a price; is this actually free?

This may be a great resource, paid or free, for agencies who maybe cannot get people in for training who have the basic skills to access the internet already.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Richard
