james f hooper
 

Greetings all, okay just updated to windows 1903 using jaws 2019latest build.

The weird thing is now when I open my downloads folder it is saying like yesterday in terms of what  files were added today, last week last month I just want a regular list of files anyway to get that back.

will do its best to recognize the PDFs. However, you can aalways use Adobe

Re: PuTTY client using JAWS

 

It really depends on what Pamela wants to edit; PuTTY has a workaround that
improves its echo, but still leaves a lot to be desired, I use it strictly
for shell commands and if the command is long, better to type in a local
text editor and after you are sure it has no errors, copy and paste it into
the command line using Jaws cursor and right-mouse-button.

To edit files at the server, I use the built-in editor of WinSCP which is
accessible with Jaws and works very well for my purposes, you could even set
it to use the UTTF-8 character set. With it, you could edit files as if you
were using Notepad.

Regards,

Humberto

Best solution is SecureCRT which has scripts included with JAWS as of
the 2019.04 update.

If you're limited to what comes with Windows, there is a command-line
ssh client that you can install from Settings (windows+i) then apps then
apps and features then manage optional features then add a feature then
OpenSSH Client.

Regarding using an editor, I have a very small amount of vision which

For any major editing, I do the majority of that on my PC, and then
transfer the file to the server. It's an extra step, but somewhat of a
workaround.

I would be very interested if you come across any real solutions for this.

In a text editor, the same is true. I can hear the characters as I

keys in PC cursor gives me nothing. This is not practical, since
editing a script or document would be nearly impossible. I can read it
using JAWS or invisible cursor, but this does not allow you to know
where your PC cursor is.

I have been trying to use ubuntu on windows to try to act like a Linux
system to use ssh instead of putty. I used ssh to access my former

to prevent me from loging in there. Unfortunately, I have not found a

Hello list,
I have found out that JAWS2018 (for Windows10 x64) does not work very
well with PuTTY (ssh client) using PC cursor. For example, when using
a text editor like emacs or vim, the PC cursor cannot track letters or
words or lines, it just treats the file as a blank template no matter
what text is there or what you type (although JAWS cursor shows text).
This is also true for the command line with the PC cursor. JAWS cursor
and invisible cursor have correct functionality when compared to other
ssh terminals like openSSH or terraterm that I have used in the past
for other tasks outside of work.
The complication is that my work only allows the use of PuTTY due to
security, as it is specially configured with Kerberos (krb5) which
uses my CAC card to create a special ticket. I also think that the
allowed PuTTY is version 0.70 (or a special version specific to what
is allowed).
I have discovered some scripts that were recommended for JAWS2018 like
this
https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com

I have also tried changing some of the PuTTY settings (like changing
the cursor from block to under and to vertical) but I have not found
the solution.
If anyone can recommend solutions or how to script something that may
solve my problem, it would be very much appreciated.















Re: Dell model number

Adrian Spratt
 

Thanks to everyone who replied. The old standby, Windows key+pause, didn't bring up the answer. It just has my name as the computer model. I installed Bilarc Advisor, which gave me the basic answer. However, it turns out there's more than one type of computer with this model number, including a tower and a micro, and Bilarc doesn't answer those questions. (clearly it's a tower, but I'd like to have had confirmation.) so now I need to get a photo taken.

Hi Adrian,
Hit the run command windows plus R

Type: dxdiag and hit inter
You might get a message asks you to check for the digital signature, tab to "NO" and hit inter tab to "save all data button" and hit inter, press inter again to save it.
You'd get a text file on your desktop with the name "dxdiag.txt"
That file contains all your needed system data model, hardware, ETC.

I'm moving some files from a SD card to a back up folder.
If I use either narrator and or NVDA, it not only gives me the progress

When I do this within JAWS, it doesn't give me the rate that the processor

Any chance to get this in the next upgrade of JAWS?

Re: Jaws and PDFs

 

Madison,

 

It sounds as if the online dog grooming course is using image PDF files. I suspect they contain many photos and those creating the PDF files used didn't bother to see that they contained editable text that could be searched and read by screen readers. Glenn has already discussed some of the options for running the pdf files through OCR but if you need someone to confirm that they are image PDFs, send us a link to the site where they are so we can do so.

The NFB has a department that connects people in a field that they are working in so that person can help you.

But on your question, there are a lot of ways to read a PDF.

I'd say reading it is the easiest part, but sometimes interacting with a PDF can be tricky with Jaws.

You can use Adobe DC or you can use Open Book on a PDF, or you can use Jaws convenient OCR.  A lot of PDF files can be saved to txt in Adobe's file menu.

the cursor from block to under and to vertical) but I have not found
the solution.
If anyone can recommend solutions or how to script something that may
solve my problem, it would be very much appreciated.

Hi Madison,
If it is based on just your Blindness, then whoever told you that you can't be a dog groomer is totally wrong.
The NFB has a department that connects people in a field that they are working in so that person can help you.
But on your question, there are a lot of ways to read a PDF.
I'd say reading it is the easiest part, but sometimes interacting with a PDF can be tricky with Jaws.
You can use Adobe DC or you can use Open Book on a PDF, or you can use Jaws convenient OCR.  A lot of PDF files can be saved to txt in Adobe's file menu.
HTH.

Hi all,
I'm really hoping that someone on this list can please help me. This is
something that's been bugging me for a while, but now I'm really hoping that
I can get this fixed. Is there some way to get Jaws to read all PDFs? The
reason that I ask is because my career goal is to become a professional dog
groomer (even though most people don't think that I can), but anyway there's
an online dog grooming course that I really want to take. I was looking at
it again today and there was a link to a sample lesion which once I opened
it Jaws wouldn't read it. I know that this isn't a good sign, if I can't
read the sample lesion then I won't be able to do the course (it's all
online). Part of the problem is that I don't know whether or not Jaws will
read a PDF until I open it. I really hope that someone can help me, I'm
using Jaws 15, Windows 7, and I don't know what version of Adobe I have.
Look forward to hearing back from anyone who can help! Thanks
Madison

pdfs

What sites or other ways can I make a pdf accessible?
I can read them, but I can't maneuver through them to find specific things.
I can't use JAWS find to get back to a place in the pdf where I left off.
Best Regards

Hello,

 

I am new to Google Drive, and I just installed the backup and sync.

 

I was hoping to simply be able to copy/paste from my PC into Google drive, but doesn’t seem to happen that way.

 

I would appreciate any advice on  how to learn to upload to Google drive, not quite apparent to me yet.

 

Thanks loads.

Hi Adrian,
Hit the run command windows plus R

Type: dxdiag and hit inter
You might get a message asks you to check for the digital signature,
tab to "NO" and hit inter
tab to "save all data button" and hit inter, press inter again to save it.
You'd get a text file on your desktop with the name "dxdiag.txt"
That file contains all your needed system data model, hardware, ETC.
hope it helps.

How do I find the model number of my Dell Win10 system?

Re: Dell model number

Hi Adrian,
Use the key combination, Windows + Pause,
to open the system properties.
Route Jaws to PC, then go to the top of the screen, and read down one line
at a time.
If you have the original installation from the factory, the brand and model
should be displayed.

HTH,
Rick Justice

You can also go to the Dell website, and they have an online diagnostic support utility that will give you the model number and various other information about your computer, including the serial number and support code if it’s still under warranty.
 
Mind you, this is only if your computer manufacturer is Dell.  I don’t know what it does with other computers.

Should be a sticker on the case. Also, You can download the Belark advisor utility and run it, it will give you all that info and much more about the computer.
