Leasey, Sale Prices Forever!

Since we launched Hartgen Consultancy in December 2014, we made a very public commitment. This was that we would do our very best to provide savings on products when we possibly could. We started by cutting £150 from the cost of our J-Say product, and since then, we have introduced low-cost training courses, created a relatively inexpensive voice dictation product called J-Dictate, and we will soon be launching a version of J-Dictate in German with J-Say to follow.

Now, it is Leasey's turn. We're so very glad that Leasey is being used by hundreds of people around the world; not just computer beginners but particularly people who consider themselves to be JAWS power users. Leasey not only provides JAWS users with many new features regularly, but also improves efficiency for all manner of tasks. More about that below.

As a company, we're now in a position to offer Leasey permanently at lower prices. We hope this means that even more people can get access to the many features she provides. We would very much like to thank all the people who have supported us to get the product off the ground, purchasing Leasey at its original price over the years, because this has made it possible for us to reduce the cost to the blindness community as a whole. The users who purchased Leasey at its opening prices have, we feel, been very well compensated, as no charges have been applied to upgrades, of which there have been many. Of course we would also like to thank our loyal beta testers, who invest hours of time each month to testing Leasey, suggesting improvements and providing other feedback. In summary, however you support us, especially through social media, we sincerely thank you. Launching a sustainable business, and product such as Leasey, is no easy task and we're very glad to receive the support that we do.

Now to the prices. The cost of Leasey Total Package is now £75 which is approximately 100 American dollars. The cost of Leasey Advanced is now £50 which is approximately 62 American dollars. The cost of multi-user Leasey versions have also been changed to reflect this.

Anyone who has purchased a product through LeaseyPlan, (where it was possible to buy the product over a number of months), should contact us so we can assist you in converting your authorisation to a full version.

In summary, we feel that Leasey is the ideal companion to JAWS. We remember the days when with each new JAWS release, there were so many new features to assist the average consumer. It was something to look forward to each year: a little like Christmas, where there was something new to unwrap. While the JAWS developers work very hard on each new major version change, they have their work cut out to keep pace with major Microsoft Office and Windows changes. If its features that you want, Leasey is the product you need. We produced a major update with many new features in July of this year, and we have another very significant update to come before the end of 2017, including enhanced support for the Google Chrome web browser, considerably enhanced radio directory, and much more. To be part of the new features when the next Leasey release hits the ground, be sure to get Leasey today to be in at the cutting edge!

Get iTuned Into Audio!

Using iTunes and JAWS for Windows to manage your music, hear the radio, and enjoy movies, TV and podcasts.

Introduction.

"It's a resource hog". "It's slow to load". "It gets updated frequently and I don't know if I'll still be able to access it with JAWS". "I cannot find the content I want to hear".

Those are just some of the feelings people express about iTunes for Windows from Apple. But nevertheless, it's been around for 16 years, and it is the world leader if you want to purchase the latest song or album quickly, even if you don't intend to use iTunes itself to play it. No wonder, as there are over 30 million songs available to buy through the iTunes Store, and not all of them are by the band U2 or about Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriends! Apple have made iTunes the largest music retailer on the planet and designed a concept which is perfect for our "Instant Gratification" culture.

But in adddition, there's no denying that iTunes is a complete music management system. Not only can you find the items you want, but you can also have songs uploaded to listen to on other devices, import CD's into the program, create playlists for that party you're hosting, and even play music from Apple's extensive catalogue for free if you have an Apple Music subscription.

Our new training course, "Get iTuned Into Audio", will not only show you how to use all of the features of iTunes just described, but it will also spend time teaching you how to customise the product for optimum accessibility. That is the key to resolving many of the difficulties people have. If you spend time customising the way iTunes presents information, this not only improves speed and navigation but it also ensures the level of accessibility is considerably enhanced.

What Will I Learn?

The course is divided into five sessions, each of which will last 90 minutes. Many of the topics are extremely in depth, but broadly speaking they will include:

  • Customising iTunes for keyboard navigation and optimum accessibility.
  • Understanding the terminology.
  • Navigating the iTunes screen and an explanation of each item to be found.
  • Importing existing audio files into your iTunes library.
  • Importing CD's into your iTunes library.
  • Viewing and changing the song and album information for each item.
  • Finding content by searching for it. This includes customising searches.
  • Customising the iTunes views and the information JAWS speaks or outputs to Braille.
  • browsing items by artist, title, album, recently added or other categories.
  • Playing the audio content. Volume adjustment, move by track or album, telling iTunes about your listening preferences.
  • The Menu Bar, the Context Menu and the Actions Menu.
  • Checking and unchecking items.
  • Verifying the spelling of existing items.
  • Sharing your listening preferences via social media.
  • Creating and managing playlists.
  • iTunes Match. What it is and how to use it on your computer and other devices.
  • Apple Music. How it works, searching for content and listening to it when you have an Apple Music subscription.
  • Working with the iTunes Store. This includes finding content by searching or browsing for it, previewing items, purchasing, navigation tips to find what you want quickly, screen-reading strategies to manage your account, downloading items you have previously purchased, and more.
  • Playing your purchased content using a media player other than iTunes.
  • Learning about new releases and iTunes recommendations based upon your listening preferences.
  • Purchasing, renting and listening to movies and TV shows. This includes selecting a specific TV series and purchasing audio described items.
  • Hearing radio stations in iTunes.
  • Listening to, subscribing to, and managing podcasts.
  • Working with your audio content on other devices. This includes interaction with Apple Music, managing playlists, and iTunes Match.
  • Working with the Sonos interface for iTunes.

Points to Note.

This training course is concerned with audio content and does not relate to interacting with apps designed for other purposes. However, there is plenty of scope for a later training course on this subject.

Users of our Leasey product do have many advantages when navigating iTunes. For those who do not have Leasey, course students will be able to download a small subset of JAWS scripts which will make it possible to access some tasks much easier and will refine the speech output.

While the course does contain details of purchasing content, iTunes Match and Apple Music, there is no compulsion to purchase anything additional to participate. You can learn about these services which may inspire you to take advantage of them at a later date.

Who is the Course For?

Even if you do not intend to use iTunes as your primary music source for listening to audio, the training course still provides immense value. Once you know how to work with it, iTunes is by far the quickest and easiest way of previewing and purchasing music, movies and TV shows. The course will give you the skills you need to get the most from it.

There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions regarding the topics under discussion, however this is achieved in a structured manner. This ensures that you can focus on learning the concepts being taught. There is a breakout session after approximately 15 minutes of instruction so that you do not forget the question you wish to know the answer to.

If I Purchase the Course, What Will I Receive?

The course will be delivered online via our accessible Zoom Confrencing platform. If you have not used this conferencing software before, you will receive instructions prior to the commencement of the course. This software allows for the delivery of the presentation, including the output from the screen-reading software. The audio is of a high quality.

You can also participate by telephone in the UK, US, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Finally, there is a very accessible I O S app for Zoom.

  • An audio recording of each lesson in MP3 format.
  • Text documentation comprising a list of keystrokes to reinforce topics covered in the lessons.
  • An email list active prior to (and during) the course so you can ask questions outside tuition time.

The proposed dates for the course sessions are as follows:

  • 27 September;

Leasey version 3.3 will be released tomorrow. This is by far one of the most significant updates we have made for a long time. Here are the new features in brief.

This version contains many new features and improvements. For further information, please refer to our documentation.

New in LeaseySearch:

iTunes. Search for an item, preview results from within the JAWS Results Viewer, and get new releases. When the audio sample of a song is playing, pause, stop, play and adjust the volume with keystrokes. All this is done without iTunes needing to run.

Financial Times
Fox Sports
Google News
Independent
Mirror
MTV News
MTV News UK
National Geographic
New Scientist
Newsweek
and many more.

Highly configurable Weather app. Providing more than just the weather, our new app gives you the local time of the place you are searching. It also gives Temperatures, wind speed, humidity, "feels like", maximum and minimum temperatures, and current forecast. Temperatures and Kilometres/miles per hour formats are controlled by the user.
Sunrise, Sunset, Moonrise and Moonset times are given if desired. You can also search for place names or type, "Nearby", and Leasey will attempt to determine your current location.
Seven day forecast included.
Recent searches included.

Oxford Dictionaries. Learn definitions of words.

Ultimate Music Database. Search for a song to find its chart position or recall a UK or US chart from 1940 to the present.

Just Watch. Search for TV shows or movies available on a number of platforms.

Refinements have also been made to existing LeaseySearches, including the ability to bring into view most recent items you have searched for.

Other new features include:

LeaseyNotes, create a note from anywhere and file it under a category.

New radio stations added to LeaseyRadio.

Support for tinySpell.

A list of recently opened documents in Microsoft word.

Return to last visited page in Microsoft Word documents.

Leasey always unmutes audio of primary sound source at startup, or it can be achieved using a keystroke and the volume set to a moderate level if things go wrong.

Easy to find keystrokes exist to hear the time, hear the time including seconds, hear the date, insert the time or insert the date.

LeaseyBites can be downloaded or listened to via Hotkey Help menu item, controlled through an easy to use interface.

Optional announcement is given as to the latest LeaseyBite available, disabled by default.

Custom Web Text can be added to web pages or domains to create your own notes.

Compatibility now exists for StationPlaylist Studio scripts so they can be used at the same time as Leasey. Be sure to read the documentation on this point.

If you wish, the Skype scripts from Doug Lee can now be installed alongside Leasey.

Applying LeaseyTags to files in very long folder paths caused some problems. This is now resolved.

New Update facility included.

For those using Zoom conferencing, ALT+Windows+S enables and disables alerts from being spoken even if you are not in the app.

When backing up files to a folder, such as Dropbox, Leasey remembers the last one you used, thus ensuring you do not need to type the path again.

Hotkey Help for Leasey completely redesigned.

New sections in Hotkey Help include a list of new keystrokes for this version and a link to all keystrokes in HTML format.

Documentation now considerably expanded and revised.

If opening links from JAWS Research It or LeaseyNews within the Results Viewer, Leasey uses your default browser for viewing full stories, such as Google Chrome, rather than Internet Explorer.

Free Basic Scripts for the Zoom Conferencing Platform

These scripts for JAWS versions 14 onwards offer some functionality to support the Zoom conferencing software. They are not essential for using Zoom as the company have implemented accessibility to a high level. These scripts were developed for our own use and are delivered without any form of technical support. If they work for you, we very much hope you benefit from using them.

The scripts enhance the experience in a number of ways:

  • When scheduling a meeting, or creating a new one, the dialog box controls are somewhat easier to comprehend.
  • When in a meeting, press ALT+Windows+s to enable or disable the announcement of Alerts, such as when someone has left the meeting room. Note that with the free scripts alerts are only suppressed from within the Zoom client at this time. If you have our Leasey product, alerts will be suppressed globally.
  • Regardless of this, press ALT+Windows+A to hear the last alert, even if it was not spoken. This should enable you, for example, to ascertain whether someone has entered the room, but you are in control of that output. There is scope for refining which kind of alerts get spoken, but we're pretty sure the Zoom team will develop this functionality over time so these scripts will have a short shelf-life.
  • Press Insert+Tab to verify whether alerts are enabled or disabled.
  • ALT+R should report whether recording is enabled or not.
  • Regardless of the alert setting, ALT+A reports whether the audio is muted or unmuted.

For a comprehensive audio book on using the zoom client please visit this page.

Chrome Plated, Using Google Chrome with JAWS for Windows!

Introduction.

During a recent American convention, it was suggested that in 3 or 4 years from now, Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge would be the dominant internet browsers.

For years, many of us have been using Microsoft Internet Explorer to shop online, read the news, work with social media sites and much more besides. But we must look to the future. It seems like the right time for us to at least begin to understand what Google Chrome can do or even use it as our full-time browser and there are compelling reasons as to why you may want to do the latter.

That's just one of the aspects of our training course, Chrome Plated!

What Will I Learn?

The course is divided into four sessions, each of which will last 60 minutes. In addition to teaching you how to use the Google Chrome browser with JAWS for Windows, we address what we consider to be the most important and critical issue. Efficiency of use. How does the support for Google Chrome compare with Microsoft Internet Explorer in terms of usability? Google have implemented accessibility to excellent effect in Chrome, but can you carry out functions with the same degree of efficiency and ease of use with Google Chrome as you can with Internet Explorer? There are differences in the way you undertake some tasks with an alternative browser, (that is accepted), but once mastered, is it just as easy to get done what you need to do on a daily basis? Are there tasks where Chrome is superior to other browsers? We'll be going into all these issues in great detail.

The training course covers many topics including:

  • An introduction to the advantages of using Chrome as opposed to other browsers.
  • How to make Chrome the Default browser.
  • Customising Chrome for ease of use with JAWS for Windows through browser Settings.
  • Keyboard shortcuts for web browsing and getting to where you need to be.
  • Working through relevant options in the JAWS Quick Settings.
  • Working with the Address Bar/Omnibox.
  • A brief overview of JAWS Quick Navigation Keys.
  • Good web browsing and screen-reading strategies for getting the most from web pages.
  • Creating and managing your Bookmarks.
  • The five methods for accessing pages you've visited before including those you have Bookmarked.
  • Downloading files: where they go and how to control them.
  • Listening to audio content.
  • Tabbed Browsing: what is it and getting the most from it.
  • Opening pages in a new window.
  • Tools within JAWS and other products, such as Placemarkers, LeaseyPoints, LeaseyAlerts and Smart Navigation.
  • Settings not related to accessibility and optimisation.
  • Synchronising items across computers and devices.
  • Selecting Text ready for copying.
  • Getting Help.
  • Chrome Extensions.
  • Using and Editing Search Engines.

Who is the Course For?

This course is suited to anyone who has a basic knowledge of how to undertake working with the web with JAWS for Windows using any browser and who wishes to learn how Google Chrome can be used. It would also be suitable for anyone who has an awareness of using Chrome but who wants to learn more to get the most from it.

If I Purchase the Course, What Will I Receive?

The course will give to you:

  • An audio recording of each lesson in MP3 format.

Costing.

The cost of the course is £40 which is currently 52 US dollars.
Purchase Chrome Plated Online.

Alternatively, anyone can purchase the course by sending an Email to jaws@hartgen.org, whereupon a fully accessible electronic invoice will be sent to you which can be paid through PayPal or any major credit or debit card. Orders can also be placed by telephone:

  • Call us (from within the UK): 02920-850298.

Excellent Screen-Reading Offers for People in the UK!

Hi to All

Sight and Sound Technology have some truly fantastic offers relating to products from VFO that we should draw your attention to.

In particular, a brand new JAWS Home user option costs just £115, a massive saving. Upgrades are also competitively priced as are Software Maintenance Agreements.

This means for the time of the sale, if you do not have JAWS already, you could obtain a brand new copy of JAWS 18, and Leasey Total Package for £190. Alternatively, get JAWS 18 and Leasey Advanced for £165. In that way, not only would you get a superb screen-reader, but also access to all of Leasey's functions for computer beginners, or to improve your productivity. We're currently working through many of these tools in our LeaseyBites series of audio and text tutorials.

If you take advantage of these offers, you might like to think about these training courses.

Over Easy, the Switch from Window-Eyes to JAWS. Despite its name, this is an ideal course for new users to JAWS.

Catching Up with JAWS, focuses on features you may not be familiar with, which were implemented within the screen-reader during the past few years.
Our Training Area has a number of other courses available, most of which are on sale at the moment.

Do bare in mind that these offers are only in place for a couple of weeks, so don't miss out!

What Is a LeaseyBite?

Many people know that Leasey is a computer program working with JAWS for Windows which is ideal for the computer beginner. However, you may not know that there are lots of tools, utilities and services which are very beneficial to the intermediate or advanced JAWS user too.

Many of these features have been suggested by existing JAWS users. We often get comments like, "I wish JAWS could do X, Y or Z". Where possible, we make it happen.

We don't want to keep all these fantastic functions a secret. So, during July, we're going to tell you about the amazing things Leasey can do. We'll do this within short concise audio tutorials we call LeaseyBites. There will be a LeaseyBite for each day of July, so 31 in total.

There will be at least one LeaseyBite to highlight how a person who has never used a computer before can benefit from Leasey, together with lots of demonstrations of existing features. And if that's not enough, our new Leasey update for July contains many new features and improvements, and descriptions of those will be included in LeaseyBites as well.

Don't have Leasey yet? We hope the features we show you in LeaseyBites may encourage you to jump into the Leasey pool and benefit from the wonderful things Leasey can do for you. We want you to get bitten.

Hungry to know more? Keep checking our social media outlets or the Leasey email list for details of each new LeaseyBite!

about-Face, JAWS for Windows and Facebook for Beginners

"It's too difficult to use". "It's not accessible". "All my family use it and I cannot join in". "I'm trying to access part of it on my phone and it's not working as I expect it to." Those are just some of the sentiments a lot of people express about Facebook. But it shouldn't be like that should it when we as blind people are always striving for inclusion?

The good news is that we are able to access most aspects of Facebook very well when using the JAWS for Windows screen-reader and a web browser. Our training course, "about-Face, JAWS for Windows and Facebook for Beginners", will show you not only how to work with Facebook, but also gives lots of information about how you can customise JAWS so as to gain the best experience possible.

Facebook has become one of the most popular social networking sites of all time. The site can be accessed from many devices containing a web browser and which is connected to the Internet. It should be about having fun, getting information, sharing content or perhaps using it to promote a service. The course will show you how to do all of these things on a daily basis without thinking too much about the accessibility!

How JAWS Interacts with Facebook.

Ordinarily, JAWS interacts well with both the Facebook Mobile and Facebook Desktop sites. While undoubtedly users of our Leasey product will gain a far better experience when using Facebook, if you do not have this product there is still a lot you can do to customise JAWS to provide a better experience, and to use some of the tools to improve your ability to navigate Facebook so as to gain more from it. While the course will describe the Leasey keystrokes and the experience you will receive when using it, the assumption is that you do not have it installed so as to appeal to the widest possible audience. You will also find that some of the techniques learned in this course when using JAWS will benefit you when working with many internet sites.

What Will I Learn?

The course is divided into three sessions, each of an hour's duration. The topics include:

  • Facebook Mobile versus Facebook Desktop.
  • Creating a Facebook account.
  • Editing your Facebook profile.
  • Security and Privacy.
  • Searching for friends and pages of interest.
  • Sorting the News Feed.
  • Reviewing the News Feed.
  • Liking or reacting to a Facebook post.
  • Commenting on Facebook posts.
  • Creating a Facebook post.
  • Attaching images to Facebook posts.
  • The Facebook Notifications area.
  • Accepting Facebook Friend requests and checking them out first.
  • Viewing Facebook friends.
  • Sending private messages to friends.
  • Viewing the Facebook profile of a friend.
  • Working with Facebook groups.

Note that there is scope for a more advanced training course on the management of Facebook pages which is not covered here.

Who is the Course For?

This course is suited to anyone who has always wanted to use Facebook but has been unsure how to begin, through to those who are using it already but would like to gain a better experience when using it.

If I Purchase the Course, What Will I Receive?

The course will give to you:

  • An audio recording of each lesson in MP3 format.

Costing.

The cost of the course is £40 which is currently 52 US dollars.

Purchase About-Face Online.

It is important that you have:

  • Good keyboarding skills;
  • A microphone so as to ask questions within the course;
  • JAWS for Windows screen-reader;
  • Access to Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome web browser.

Summary.

It is true that Facebook is not as intuitive to use as Twitter, principally because of Desktop programs which have been designed for the purpose of working with tweets which do not require interaction with a web site. However, the Facebook community is huge. If you would like to be part of it, then getting some useful skills to work with Facebook could be just what you need. Jump into the pool, the water's fine!
