Re: NVDA and Jarte

Hi All,

We are all just trying to do our best and help each other the best we can.
This is from the jarte manual.

34 Screen Reader Mode
Background
A screen reader is a program capable of audiblizing the text appearing on a
computer
screen for the benefit of visually impaired computer users. Microsoft's
Narrator program is
an example of a basic screen reader built into Windows. There are other more
advanced
screen reader program's available including the free NVDA program and the
popular JAWS
program.
Jarte's Screen Reader Mode
Jarte runs in a special screen reader mode if a recognized screen reader
program is already
running on the computer when Jarte is started. Jarte uses a special screen
reader friendly
interface while in screen reader mode. A number of Jarte's visually oriented
features are
removed from the interface while in screen reader mode (e.g., color related
features, interface
panels that require visual interaction, etc) to make use of Jarte more
efficient for visually
impaired users. The interfaces for other features are modified to make them
more readable
to a screen reader.
Note that this Help document does not describe Jarte's features as they
appear when
running in screen reader mode. It is a goal to eventually create an edition
of this document
that describes Jarte's features as they appear in screen reader mode.
Issues
Jarte will only enter screen reader mode if a recognized screen reader is
running. Jarte's title
bar will display the phrase "screen reader mode" when Jarte is running in
screen reader
mode.
If Jarte does not recognize your screen reader program then please report
the name of the
unrecognized screen reader to Jarte support to ensure the next version of
Jarte is updated
appropriately. You can force Jarte to switch to screen reader mode by
copying the phrase
"enable screen reader mode" to the Windows clipboard before starting Jarte.
This only needs
to be done one time.
If Jarte is running in screen reader mode, but it should not be, then you
can turn off screen
reader mode by copying the phrase "disable screen reader mode" to the
Windows clipboard
and then restarting Jarte. This only needs to be done one time.

If you guys have added this to the clipboard before running Jarte and it
doesn't work then please check all spelling case of letters punctuation etc.
and try again.

Example did you try with and without the quotes? I think you don't need the
quotes as I remember.

Hope this helps.
Sam

I don't remember if it was Jarte support or Window eyessupport that told me
I had to copy enable screen reader mode to the clipboard, then launch Jarte.
Haven't had a problem since. Maybe this problem has been resolved during the
past few years.

a problem with your installation of the program or some minor Windows
problem.

I too had the problem of my screen reader not working in Jarte until I
copied enable screen reader mode to the clipboard. So what you say is
incorrect. This was about 3 years ago. To many know it all's on this�
list.
