To all Handiham Members and Volunteers,
We have a tip for folks that are using the remote bases and JAWS 13 or 14 is your screen reader of choice. When you are not able to read text on the remote base client interface, JAWS Convenient OCR technology might help you. You must be using JAWS 13 or 14 to take advantage of this feature. Essentially, the JAWS screen reader will take a snapshot of those windows that sometimes are hard to read and present the text contained within that window. With the remote base client, and before we update to a more screen reader friendly version (upcoming), you can actually read the entire contents of the main Remote Base client. Here is how to do it.
1. Press INSERT+SPACE (Sometimes INSERT is called the JAWSKey). On laptops, replace INSERT with CapsLock.
2. Press the letter O which stands for convenient OCR
3. Press the letter W which stands for window.
4. JAWS will present any text that it can find in plain text. This is useful if you want to be able to read power levels, or Gain, and so on.
We hope you can take advantage of this tip. 73, KK4JZX
