Pleas find responses to some of your concerns in your original message = below. >>> jmb1202@xxxxxxxxxxxxx 02/07/05 08:15PM >>> Hello Everyone I have been using Money Talks for about a week now and = overall find it a very good program. Here are some of my observations of = things that may help with the ease of use for the end user and some bugs = that I found while using JAWS On my system.=20 Money Talks=20 Can Money Talks be se-up so you can get the current balance from wherever = you are instead of manually going to the last entry in the balance column? Rob>Let me understand. You want to read to total account balance, = including uncleared transactions? If so, this could be done. This is the = first time we have seen a request for this; we figured it would be rare = enough that one could just read the bottom transaction. Thoughts, anyone? Can Money talks recognize a shared minimum balance between a checking and = saving account so that if the minimum balance is reached between these two = account a notification can be given when a service charge will be applied? Rob>No shared minimum balance support is available at this time. It = doesn't seem like a simple thing to implement either on our end, or the = user's end. For example, you would have to have both accounts open, and = link them somehow. What if you had three or four accounts open? What if = you had just one account open of a pair? The Date field should be self formatting so only the numbers of the date = need to be entered. ( 010105 converts to 01/01/05 ) Rob>We don't agree; you can leave out the leading 0's if you wish and have = the same numver of key strokes. Example, 2/8/5. When using ctrl + tab to move through the open account screens, the window = moved to should be announced. This does not happen whether using jaws or = the built in speech.=20 Rob>The reason it doesn't speak with JAWS is a JAWS problem, not a Money = Talks problem. We had this working once in self-voicing mode, but there = were some technical problems which made the information speak too much. We = could revisit this. Can a selection be place int the transfer dialog box to set up a recurring = transfer such as an amount of money that is transferred from a checking = account to a savings account each month? Rob>We would have to investigate. Probably not, as you would be linking = accounts as above. Is there a way to allow for deletion of misspelled entries or unwanted = entries in the drop down boxes?=20 Rob>Not yet; we will have this before the release. JAWS CTRL + SPACE does not work; no announcement of current transaction. ( I = have seen that this has been address with some jaws scripts by another = list member. ) The find previous or next uncleared item does not WORK WITH JAWS.=20 Rob>This is another script problem. Perhaps we could change the key = sequence. JAWS will not read the entire entry in the pay name field although the = application speech will.=20 Rob>This is a screen column width problem; this may be addressed. However, = if a name is too long, there isn't much we can do. When using jaws the column headings are not announced when moving across = the sheet from column to column. This Applies No Matter Which User = Verbosity Is Used (i.e? Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced) Rob>I doubt we will be writing JAWS scripts to solve this. when in the category and debit/credit summarys jaws does not speak easily, = when using the money talks speech this is not a problem. This appears to = be a problem with JAWS focusing on the text, if you move up or down a line = then read the current line JAWS will read it but will not read it just by = moving to the line. Rob>This is a JAWS problem, though there may be something we can do to = minimize it. 6. There appears to be a problem wit jaws focusing on a new application = when using alt+ tab to move between different applications, i.e. Internet = Explorer, the Calculator, a Word processor.=20 Rob>I doubt this is related to Money Talks.
