Re: jaws and seven: accessibility, settings, etc.

Hi sounds interesting. What Linux do you use? I tried Ubuntu and Vinux so far. Not a fan of Linux but I like to try things especially in a virtual environment. I like to see how things work.

I'll probably use Windows and JAWS forever as my desktop OS, but Linux is
still my favorite server OS.

I like the Linux command line for system administration and that's what I
use the virtual machine for.
I use speakup and brltty to perform sys. Admin tasks on remote hosts
(including my own web server).

The reason I dropped cygwin for this is due to brltty's excellent handling
of consoles and the VM also gives me 6 virtual consoles by default.
I find the virtual consoles very powerful and useful.

I'm considering setting up samba on my local web server to allow me to edit
files using my favorite text editor in windows.
But I guess expand drive is a better approach since this allows me access to
remote machines using sshfs.
I have shell access on all remote machines.

But using cygwin to mount the remote filesystems over ssh sounds very
interesting.
I don't remember the command from the top of my head, but I remember that
I've mounted remote filesystems from Linux using ssh...
How do you do it?

I have dropped cygwin for the time and us vmware player but it's not the
same.  The orca is just slow as snails and I have yet to put speakup on.  I
have been thinking of using emacspeak till Jaws gets cygwin fixed but the
reason I want to use cygwin is so I can use my favorite editor in windows.
If boxer was in Linux and Linux x with orca was faster I would be gone from
windows.

Now with that all said FS is working on the problem so I am hoping they get
it fixed quickly for now I am using Secure crt and expand drive to allow me
to do what I used to do with cygwin.  I have a vm ware machine running 3
Linux boxes and secure crt and expand drive but man I miss cygwin.

Sorry!
I actually have the same problem and it's a bit annoying.
I've recently dropped cygwin and use a virtual linux machine instead, but
haven't tried the virtual linux machine inside Win7 yet.

Everything does not work out of the box In fact FS is looking into the
problems I am having with cmd.exe and cygwin and any command line type
program if you use ssh to get to unix boxes stick with vista and xp right
now.  That or your going to have to put up with at best a lot of extra
echoed crap.

Everything works out of the box.
I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and JAWS 11.

The only change I've done is to set Windows Explorer to show Details view
instead of the default tiles.
Then turn off grouping by going to the view menu and group by and press
enter on None.

Yep, that's it!

Hello all,
I'm debating putting windows seven on my laptop, and was going to get jaws
11. I know in xp there were a few settings that made things work better, is
it the same for seven? What sorts of things need to be set for
accessibility?
                Thanks,
Tyler Littlefield
