Re: Jaws basic training in Daisy format:

Well, many thanks to both Roy and Jack. I have fixed the problem. I reinstalled 
Jaws for the third time and voila, or bravo or whatever, this time it worked!
I have all the training books in the FS Reader menu. What a great feeling to 
have this thing doing what it's supposed to. I didn't really need those 
training 
files in the FS Reader directory--but I really did need to get the thing 
working 
as it was supposed to.
I don't think I did anything differently--Guess the program knew who was going 
to win in the end!
Many thanks again!

Subject: Jaws basic training in Daisy format:


Freedom Scientific is advertising their basic training in Daisy format. Even
with technical assistance from the Canadian National Institute for the
Blind,
neither I nor they could get this feature to work.
I can read the audio files in  MP3 format--Winamp is invoked
automatically--but
none of the standard navigation available in Daisy format is available when
simply navigating the files as MP3's. I do have the fast forward and rewind
and
volume features in Winamp working but the speech compression and place
marker
features, available in the Daisy format are of course not available in
Winamp.
Question: Where and how are the training materials available in Daisy
format?
I installed the training files from the Jaws 6.0 program disk. These are in
the
training\enu file and the FS reader is on the desktop.
The instructions for using the FS Reader are indeed available in Daisy
format
with all the navigation keys but there are no training files available here.
Has anyone been able to get this to work.
I read Chris' post and did copy the files to the training\enu as he
recommended
and even put them in a Victor books directory on my desktop. Many other
Victor
books files I have in that directory read in the true Daisy format but the
Jaws
training files read only through Winamp.
I then uninstalled Jaws and reinstalled it and made sure the training files
were
installed through a guided install and still I can read these files only
through
Winamp but not with the FS Daisy reader nor with the Victor Soft software.
Sorry for the lengthy post but now that you know what I have done, Can you
now
apprise me as to what I haven't done or haven't done correctly?
