JAWS Tandem Quick Start Guide-from freedomscientific

Use JAWS Tandem™ to access another computer running JAWS to provide hands on technical support, write scripts from a distance, or perform remote JAWS training. This feature consists of a controller system, used by support personnel, distributors, dealers, consultants, and trainers, and a target system, which is the customer’s JAWS application and computer. JAWS Tandem Center is a subscription service on the controller side only. This means that ultimately, there will be a charge for anyone acting as a controller. There will not be a fee for the customer getting the support, acting as the target computer. The initial release of JAWS 10 is providing this subscription service free of charge for all customers wishing to act as a controller for a period of time yet to be determined.

Remember to visit the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Note: Always use the INSERT key when typing JAWS Tandem specific keystrokes. When using the Laptop keyboard layout, do not substitute CAPS LOCK for INSERT.

Verify the following before you begin:

  • Internet access
  • Windows XP or later
  • If you are having issues connecting to the Tandem Center, please make sure that Internet address tandem.freedomscientific.com and port 12000 be given access in the firewall. If you are in a corporate environment, please contact your IT team with this information.

Starting a JAWS Tandem Center Session

Note: The controller user provides the target user with a meeting ID. The ID is automatically generated for the controller during the connection process as described in the following procedure.

To start a JAWS Tandem Center session on a controller computer, do the following:

  1. Press INSERT+J to open the JAWS application window.
  2. Press ALT+U to open the Utilities menu.
  3. Select JAWS Tandem from this menu, and then select Tandem Center from the next submenu.
  4. Select Get Access to a computer, which then opens the Get Access to a Computer dialog box.
  5. Press SPACEBAR to activate the Get Access button.
    The Meeting ID Created dialog box opens. An alphanumeric ID appears in the Meeting ID read-only edit field. It is not case sensitive.
  6. Provide the target user with the meeting ID, and then wait for the connection process to complete on the target system. After successful connection with the target, you have access to the target system’s desktop. Note that once an ID is generated, it is valid for 60 minutes until a connection is made. If you have not made a connection within this period, you must obtain a new ID from the Tandem Center.

Note: Instead of having the target user walk through similar menus, just tell him or her to press INSERT+ALT+T. This will open the Allow Access to My Computer dialog box, and place focus in the Meeting ID edit box. You can then give the user the meeting ID that was created for you.

On the target computer, do the following:

  1. Press INSERT+ALT+T. The Allow Access to My Computer dialog box opens.
  2. Type the meeting ID into the edit box. The ID is not case sensitive.
  3. Press TAB, and then SPACEBAR to activate the Allow Access button.
    After the controller and target successfully connect, the controller has access to the target system's desktop.

Running a Session

As a controller, you can run the target system using JAWS and braille just as if you are sitting in front of that computer. Use the same JAWS keystrokes and functionality that you are familiar with to control the target system. JAWS keystrokes work no matter which type of keyboard layout is used: Laptop or Desktop.

Note: When using the Laptop keyboard layout, do not substitute CAPS LOCK for INSERT when typing a JAWS Tandem keystroke.

JAWS Tandem Keystrokes

  • INSERT+ALT+T – ends session and can be issued from controller or target systems.
    Note: You can also use this keystroke to start JAWS Tandem on a target system.
  • INSERT+ALT+TAB – toggles between target system’s desktop and controller system’s desktop. Only available on controller system; cannot be used by target system.
  • INSERT+CTRL+SHIFT+V – toggles video on or off. Video is off by default. When video is on, it lets sighted users watch JAWS Tandem activity. Only available on controller system; cannot be used by target system.

Remote Clipboard

Use the CTRL+C keystroke to copy text with formatting from the target system, and then use CTRL+V to paste text into a file on the controller system. This is ideal for support personnel who want to copy specific text from a log file on the target system.

Note: Remote Clipboard will not transfer files.

Disconnecting a Session

Press INSERT+ALT+T to terminate a session at any time from either the controller system or the target system. Each system regains control of its own desktop.

Tandem Direct Session

A Tandem Direct session is used for enterprise networks in a business when two JAWS users are connected to the same network. All functionality and keystrokes previously mentioned for a Tandem Center session are applicable for a Tandem Direct session.

Starting a Tandem Direct session is slightly different than a Tandem Center session as outlined in the following list.

  • Determine which computer will be the controller and which will be the target.
  • The first time you run a Tandem Direct session on a target system, you must unblock the program JTTarget so that it can communicate through Windows Firewall.
  • The target system always initiates the session, and it must provide its meeting ID and its host name to the controller.
  • By default, the target system listens on port 3000. If you change the port setting, remember to configure the controller system for the same port.
  • The controller can turn on video to view JAWS Tandem activity.

Starting a JAWS Tandem Direct Session

A JAWS Tandem Direct session is always launched from the target computer. To start, do the following:

  1. Press INSERT+J and then ALT+U to open the Utilities menu in the JAWS application window.
  2. Press T to open the JAWS Tandem submenu, and then R to open the Tandem Direct submenu.
  3. Press A to choose Allow Access to my Computer. A dialog box opens with focus in the Meeting ID edit box.
  4. Type a value into the Meeting ID edit box. The Meeting ID can be letters, numbers, or a combination of both. The maximum ID length is 64-characters, and it is not case sensitive. You will provide this ID to the controller user.
  5. Press TAB to move to the Host Name or IP Address read-only edit box. Provide the controller user with the host name, for example, ABC-DEF001.
  6. Press TAB to move to the Allow Access button, and press SPACEBAR to activate the button.

Note: As a target system, a Windows Security Alert dialog box may appear after pressing the Allow Access button. If this happens, choose the Unblock button and press SPACEBAR. (For Windows Vista users, a User Account Control dialog box opens. Choose the Continue button and press SPACEBAR.) This action adds the JTTarget program to an exceptions list in Windows Firewall on the target system for both Windows XP and Windows Vista users.

  1. Wait for the controller user to enter the target information. On a successful Tandem Direct connection, JAWS announces Tandem connection open. The controller system now has access to and can operate the target system.

To start a JAWS Tandem Direct session on the controller computer, do the following:

  1. Press INSERT+J to open the JAWS application window, and press ALT+U to open the Utilities menu.
  2. Press T to open the JAWS Tandem submenu, and then R to open the Tandem Direct submenu.
  3. Press G to select Get Access to a Computer. A dialog box opens, and focus is in the Host Name or IP Address edit box.
  4. Type the host name, provided to you by the target user, into the edit box.
  5. Press TAB to move to the Meeting ID edit box, and type the ID provided by the target user.
  6. Press TAB to move to the Enable Video check box. If you are a sighted user and want to watch the JAWS Tandem activity on the target system, select the check box. If you do not need video, clear the check box.

Note: By default, the Enable Video check box is cleared; however, if you selected the check box in a previous session, JAWS Tandem remembers this setting and uses it for the next session. Also, video can be toggled on or off at any time during a session using INSERT+CTRL+SHIFT+V.

  1. Press TAB to move to the Get Access button and press SPACEBAR to activate the button. After successfully connecting with the target, you now have control of the target system’s desktop. If the connection fails, verify that Windows Firewall is not blocking JTTarget on the target system. Also verify that host name, meeting ID, and port settings match.

Back to top from Tandem Direct Session

Configuring Windows Firewall for Tandem Direct Sessions

Note: The following procedures are only necessary if JTTarget is later blocked on the target system.

The target system uses a program named JTTarget. It must be added to an exceptions list on the target system so that the program can communicate through Windows Firewall. (It is not necessary to do this on the controller system.) Windows lets you unblock this program when you first create a Tandem Direct session. Later, if you block the program by deleting JTTarget from the Windows Firewall exceptions list or by clearing the JTTarget check box in the exceptions list, an error message or a Windows Security Alert will appear the next time the target and controller try to connect.

Adding JTTarget to the Exceptions List

If you previously deleted the JTTarget program from the exceptions list in Windows Firewall, use the following steps to add the program:

  1. Press WINDOWS Key and then open Control Panel.
  2. For Windows XP, select and open Windows Firewall.
    For Windows Vista, navigate to and select the Allow a program through Windows Firewall link. If a User Account Control dialog box opens, choose the Continue button and press SPACEBAR to activate the button.
  3. Press CTRL+TAB to switch to the Exceptions page in the Windows Firewall dialog box.
  4. Press TAB to move to the Add program button, and then press SPACEBAR to activate the button.
  5. Choose the Browse button in the Add a Program dialog box, and then type JTTarget.exe in the File name combo of the Browse dialog box.
  6. Press ENTER. The program is added to the Programs list in the Add a Program dialog box.
  7. Choose OK.
    For Windows XP, JTTarget is added to and selected in the Programs and Services list.
    For Windows Vista, JTTarget is added to and selected in the To Enable an Exception, Select its Check Box list.
  8. Press TAB to move to the OK button and press SPACEBAR to save the change and close Windows Firewall. The controller system can now connect to the target system.

Windows Firewall Exception for Tandem Direct

If you previously cleared the JTTarget check box in the exceptions list, do the following to select the check box:

  1. Press WINDOWS Key and then open Control Panel.
  2. For Windows XP, select and open Windows Firewall.
    For Windows Vista, navigate to and select the Allow a program through Windows Firewall link. If a User Account Control dialog box opens, select the Continue button and press SPACEBAR to activate the button.
  3. Press CTRL+TAB to switch to the Exceptions page in the Windows Firewall dialog box.
  4. For Windows XP, in the Programs and Services list, use the ARROW keys to move to JTTarget.
    For Windows Vista, in the To Enable an Exception, Select its Check Box list, use the ARROW keys to move to JTTarget.
  5. Press SPACEBAR to select the check box.
  6. Press TAB to move to the OK button and press SPACEBAR to save the change and close Windows Firewall. The controller system can now connect to the target system.

Connection Audit Logging

JAWS Tandem now maintains a log of session activity using the Windows Event Log service. These events are used to record the beginning and end of a session, the suspension and continuation of a session, and errors triggered before a session starts. The advantage of having such a log is that consultants and trainers now have a record of JAWS Tandem activity which is useful for tracking time for billing purposes and so on. The event log can be set up so that only administrators can delete events. Also, users assigned any privilege level can write events to the event log.

Note: JAWS Tandem event logging does not record user activity. It only logs session errors and the start, suspension, restart, and end of a session.

JAWS Tandem Events

JAWS Tandem events and actions trigger an entry in the event log. The following events are available. For event details, see Event Properties.

  • Event ID 1 – Tandem session error: An error event describing when a session cannot be established. This can be caused by the following:
  • Meeting ID used by the target does not match the meeting ID used by the controller.
  • Target and controller are unable to find a common voice synthesizer.
  • Meeting ID expired.
  • Network error occurred; can be caused by the target computer not communicating with the Tandem Center.
  • Event ID 2 – Tandem session started: An information event showing when a session is established between a controller and target computer. It appears in both the controller and target event logs.
  • Event ID 3 – Tandem session concluded: An information event showing when a session ended. This can be caused by the target or controller computer closing the session, or by a network error closing the session. It appears in both the controller and target event logs.
  • Event ID 4 – Tandem session suspended: An information event showing when the controller suspended a session. This is done by toggling between the target system desktop and the controller system desktop using INSERT+ALT+TAB. It appears in the target event log.
  • Event ID 5 – Tandem session resumed: An information event showing when the controller resumed the session. This is done by toggling between the controller system desktop and the target system desktop using INSERT+ALT+TAB. It appears in the target event log.

JAWS Tandem Event Properties

Event properties provide information about a JAWS Tandem event. The amount of detail given depends on the Event ID type. For example, an Event ID 4 logs only the Meeting ID, whereas an Event ID 3 provides details for all of the following event properties:

  • Meeting ID: The alphanumeric ID that is used to start a session. For a Tandem Center session, this is the value that is automatically generated for the controller computer. For a Tandem Direct session, this is the value entered in the Meeting ID edit box on the target computer.
  • Meeting type: Indicates if the meeting is a Tandem Center or Tandem Direct session.
  • User role: Indicates if the controller or target computer started or ended the session. It also indicates whether the error occurred on the controller side or the target side of the session.
  • Peer machine name – IP address: The machine name of the other computer in the session. For Tandem Direct sessions, the IP address is also included.
  • Peer user name: The user name associated with the other computer in the session.
  • Duration: Indicates the total duration of the session in hours, minutes, and seconds. This value also includes the amount of time the session was suspended.
  • Suspend time: Indicates the duration that the session was suspended by the controller system.
  • Reason: A three-digit code that explains why a session could not be established. The following error codes are available:
  • 001: The controller or target computer could not connect to the Tandem Center.
  • 002: The meeting ID expired. This code applies to the controller computer in a Tandem Center session.
  • 003: The Tandem Center rejected the meeting ID. This code applies to the target computer in a Tandem Center session.
  • 004: The controller computer could not connect to the target computer. This applies to Tandem Direct sessions.
  • 005: There is a mismatch between the meeting ID entered for the controller system and the meeting ID entered for the target system. This code applies to Tandem Direct sessions.
  • 006: The controller computer and target computer could not agree on a common voice synthesizer to use for the session.

Game for individuals with Autism and other special needs to recognize emotions to help improve social skills by recognizing the emotion, the cause behind the emotion and speedup recognition. A percentage of each download goes to Autism charities. Great geography fun as well as you take train trips around the world.

Get this App at Training Faces

Three University of North Carolina computer science students created a beginning spelling game app that is totally accessible! Spellgate, a free app, is now in the app store. Zoom and VO work well with the game. They also added an option in settings so that when you use the Refreshable Braille Device (RBD), you can turn off the picture labeling if desired so that the RBD does not spell out the picture label. (Spelling out the picture label provides the answer!) You can also mute VO and the student will have to rely on reading the RBD letters.

The students will continue to work on the game next semester, so please provide your input! They plan to do some fine tuning and hope to add letter recognition (matching letters) and a way for teachers to add their own words.

Reading stimulates white matter in kids–Get your kids reading
Posted By Abigail Klein Leichman On November 13, 2012 (12:00 am) In Education, Lifestyle

Complex changes in brain connections as children learn how to read have been newly revealed in a study initiated by Israeli brain science researcher, Michal Ben-Shachar.

Published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, the study focuses on “white matter” – a network of pale, myelin-sheathed connections that allows information transfer between distant parts of the brain.

Ben-Shachar and a team from Stanford University – where Ben-Shachar, a professor at Bar Ilan University, conducted her post-doctoral research — used an MRI-based non-invasive technique called diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to track the development of reading skills and white matter connections in 55 children ages seven to 12 over a three-year period, and how they change over time.

“The nice thing about DTI is that it is really child friendly,” said Ben-Shachar, who continues to collaborate with two Stanford labs in researching the development of reading in children born prematurely. “In a 12-minute scan you can collect high-quality data from the whole brain, while the child is lying still watching a movie.”

Counterintuitive findings

The National Institutes of Health-funded study was conducted between 2004 and 2007, and collected so much data that it took years to organize and analyze it.

The results were somewhat surprising. Children who became good readers initially had lower levels of white matter in the areas of the brain associated with reading, but these levels grew rapidly during the three-year test period.

However, children who became below-average readers started out with more white matter in the areas associated with reading, and these levels declined over time — suggesting that these children were not creating and strengthening the neural pathways key to reading ability.

“When we looked at the first year of collected data, in an article published last year in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, it really struck us as so surprising to see a reverse correlation between white matter and reading ability,” Ben-Shachar tells ISRAEL21c. “This [new] paper helps us make sense of it, because we see the weaker readers start with stronger connections that decline over time.”

She speculates that this may be because during the first three years of life, children grow many brain connections and then start “pruning” ones they don’t use in order to strengthen the more relevant connections. “Perhaps there is not enough pruning in the brains of kids who become poor readers,” she suggests.

Sets the tone for future studies

Most developmental imaging studies compare brain measurements in groups of children and adults, while this one was unique in that it followed the same group of children over a long period of time.

“By doing so, we discovered that the changes in brain connections are more informative about reading skill than the measurement at a specific point in time,” says Ben-Shachar.

“This is really important if we are ever going to use MRI as a diagnostic tool in education, in addition to standard behavioral tools. It means we will have to assess the child more than once in order to look at dynamic developmental changes, because change is more important than absolute measures at a particular time point.”

At her Bar-Ilan lab, Ben-Shachar is working with Ethiopian immigrants for whom Hebrew is their first written language, in the hope of identifying how the adult brain changes as literacy is acquired.

Along with Ofer Amir and Ruth Ezrati from Tel Aviv University, Ben-Shachar recently won a prestigious grant from the Israel Science Foundation to study white matter pathways in the brains of adults who stutter.

Meanwhile, she goes to California each summer to participate in the ongoing child imaging studies at Stanford.

19 Ways to Step Back–Adapted from Classroom Collaboration, by Laurel J. Hudson, Ph.D. (Perkins School for the Blind)

 

It often feels right to give help to students with visual impairments, but this may not be in their best interest.  Use this list to help yourself to step back.

  1. You’re stepping back so your students can step forward and become independent.  Keep this in mind.                                                        
  2. Clock how long it actually takes for students to start zippers, pick up dropped papers, or find page numbers.  What’s a few more seconds in the grander scheme?                                                                                           
  3. Sit on your hands for a whole task while you practice giving verbal instead of touch cues.  Hands off the hands!
  4. If you need touch cues, try hand-under-hand instead of hand-over-hand.  This gives students much more choice.
  5. Let your students make mistakes and get into trouble.  It’s part of the human experience!     
  6. Acknowledge your own needs.  There’s a reason you chose the helping profession.
  7. Sit further away.  If you’ve been within arm’s reach, sit just within earshot.  If you’ve been sitting just within earshot, sit across the room                                          
  1. Pat yourself on the back every time you help with seeing, not thinking.  Your job is to give information.
  2. Even though helping can feel right, be aware that too much assistance is short-sighted.  Sometimes less is more, less is better.
  3. Catch yourself before you correct your students’ work.  Don’t cover for them.  This is about their skills… not yours.
  4. Commit to no intervention for a whole activity.  Take data instead.  Things might not fall apart as much as you had expected.
  5. “What page are we on?” “What’s for lunch?” Have students ask their classmates instead of you, both during school and on the telephone.
  6. Assign student learning partners and sighted guides.
  7. Teach students to decline assistance, “Thanks, but please let me try it by myself.”
  8. Whenever you add prompts, include a plan to phase them out.
  9. Let the boss know that you need to step back so that your students can be more independent.  You’re not shirking your responsibilities.
  10. Collaborate with other adults to break your habits of helping too much.  Agree to remind each other to step back.
  11. Try helping only when classroom teachers give you a signal.  They may prefer to respond directly or to give students longer to work it out alone.
  12. Post a sign, “Are there any other ways I could step back?”
