JAWS

I use JAWS now in stead of Window Eyes. Not sure I told you guys that yet. Anyway, it's a heck of a lot better than Window Eyes.
Anyway, I like being on here. I can relate to you guys and you guys are nice.

Re:JAWS



I find Jaws very hard to use because I have never been taught. I love being on here because this site is set up for my braillenote.


Re:JAWS



congrats, I love Jaws. it makes life easier although I hate things that talk so I constantly use headphones.


Re:JAWS



That is cool. I would do that but I don't even know how to use it.


Re:JAWS



YEA I LIKE IT TOO BUT I NEED AT MY HOME COMPUTER DO YOU HOW I COULD GET IT


Re:JAWS



sarah, the BN is limiting in what it can do. Ask your teachers at school to teach you jaws; it will open many doors and give you more freedom


Re:JAWS



Paulina since you are in high school ask your VI teachers how you can get jaws on your home computer.


Re:JAWS



None of my teachers know how to use jaws.


Re:JAWS



Isn't that why you went to the school for the blind? They can teach you or send a representative to teach you. ask your vi teacher.


Re:JAWS



The school for the blind isn't all about technology, I only did it for a half hour a day for 4 days so I didn't learn enough to go on the internet, and my computer is broke.


Re:JAWS



aww that sucks i gotta have a computer with me always.


Re:JAWS



me too, I'm lost and a part of me is missing if I don't have a computer or cell phone within five feet of me


Re:JAWS



That's how I am. I stay up all night on the internet. But if noone else is online I get bored really fast.


Re:JAWS



Okay now you know i don't mess around when I say my hone has to be near me at all times! I am addicted to texting!


Re:JAWS



You're lucky. I don't even knw how to text, and I can't see good enough to text.


Re:JAWS



My nv3 talks from verizon.


Re:JAWS



mimi, do you have the full keyboard layout on your nv3 and does it read the menus


Re:JAWS



That is so awesome. How can I find you on myspace without you having to give out your details?


Re:JAWS



The inside part of the phone does have a keyboard and the outside is like a regular phone. It reads texts, contacts, let's you add contacts, edit them, check missed calls, phone status, and lots more that I haven't tinkered with.


Re:JAWS



it reads all that? Mine reads the contact list, recent calls, and caller id curious if yours does more


Re:JAWS



Mine doesn't read anything.


Re:JAWS



yes it does read more than that. i love it, it's my little baby haha!


Re:JAWS



baby, how old is it? Does it have a baby book?


Re:JAWS



I'm not afraid to give out my details, so if you want to find me on myspace, just search for Sarah Meeks, and my screen name is Coaster Fanatic.


Re:JAWS



It's about two months old cuz I got this phone two days after it came out. No baby book but none of my electronics have one and if I start one now for the cellie, the others will get jealous lol.


Re:JAWS



That's funny lol.


Re:JAWS



jealous electronics that's a new one


Re:JAWS



I like jealous guys better lol


Re:JAWS



They're more fun. lol


Re:JAWS



Especially when it's the one you like.


Re:JAWS



Yep. I know that feeling.


Re:JAWS

Re:JAWS



My wireless cards wer free because I got them from the school district.


Re:JAWS

Re:JAWS



For my braillenote, I don't have to use any cords to get online, I can do it from anywhere in the house. It is pretty cool.


Re:JAWS



My braille note is five years old and doesn't work, doubt I could ever get wireless internet haha.


Re:JAWS



I think what mimi means to say is she doesn't want to fix her braille note cause she doesn't like it as much as the computer and doesn't want to spend the money on the braille note. Is that a quick and accurate summary mimi?
I've heard that the braille note isn't completely up to date with things. Like I've heard the newer microsoft word 2007 documents aren't supported by the braille note.


Re:JAWS



Wow very good. Accurate description of the mimi's words haha.


Re:JAWS



Ugh what's with the name change aiming? You know i'm not boosting your ego and calling you rockstar lol just kidding.


Re:JAWS



Yeah, Aiming, you are right. The BrailleNote doesn't update with things at all. I cand even do instant messaging or email.


Re:JAWS



you can still call me aiming mimi, rockstar is just one of my nicknames at the college. People tend to start calling me things and then it sticks and spreads to others so I have several none of which were chosen by me. who really needs their ego inflated anyway?


Re:JAWS



i'm just teasing Aiming. it's all good, i get called diva by several of my friends, that's a terible one haha. I have more horrible ones. Any of you have bad nicknames?


Re:JAWS



the dss counselor at school has been calling me young luke skywalker and saying I have the force, but I'm not sure about that


Re:JAWS



Hahaha that's cute! well I have "diva" from a few friends, "hollywood" from my mom's friend, "KK" from another group of friends, "Mimi" from family and some friends, "princess" from another group of friends, "sis" from yet another group of friends, "tt" from my nephew, and loads of others. why people nickname me is beyond me but i have tons. Sometimes I forget my actual name lol.


Re:JAWS



My nickname is Pumpkinhead. Mimi, what is your real name?


Re:JAWS



ya, I also have tons of them. I won't repeat them all cause some involve my name. But as mimi knows, I'm in a small town, and my small college is a place where everyone knows everyone and is kind of family or really friendly like. I've taken at one class from most of the professors. There are times when my real name isn't even used cause of the silly ones ppl give me.
Actually, you think that is cute mimi, people have caught on to that and it seems to be a sensation.
One of my friends started telling me that I was reminding her of scoubee du last sem. So I don't know if scoube du, luke skywalker, rockstar, or whats the best of them all. Or maybe my gangstir one is the best.


Re:JAWS



I wouldn't consider that very gangster but then again I do live in the freaking ghetto haha so i know about all the loser gangster activity lol.


Re:JAWS



I know about it too. I used to live in the ghetto.


Re:JAWS I think Jaws is much better than Window-Eyes



I use to use Window-eyes, but than I switched to Jaws and I think it works better.


Re:JAWS



That's what I heard.


Re:JAWS



Who told you?


Re:JAWSHey thanks for the advice



i appreicate it very much i wish i had a cool phone that can talk to me like you guys Paulina sorry


Re:JAWS



I heard about it when I went to that stupid fremont school.


Re:JAWS



Paulina you should get a phone soon, they are really cool and useful.


Re:JAWS



My friend Phil have been looking for a way to get jaws on our computers. I'v heard that with each CD, you get three installations. We want to split the cost between us and.


Re:JAWS



I guess that's $500 each. You can call and get more authorization.


Re:JAWS



Hey i love jaws it works great and i was wondering what is the number to call and order it Paulina


Re:JAWS



Have you ever heard about nvda? It is free and requires no licens.


Re:JAWS



Did you know fire fox and jaws have a command that is called insert F. seven. I am using fire fox right now. It is a web browser. The command that i just told you, takes you to the links list. I like that. It is more faster and easier.
