6255RE: [BCD396XT] Quick keys for system/groups
- Feb 4, 2012Hey I have free scan and i kind of need help.
I have to go in and label the combo boxes as they don't speak well with my
screen reading device.
I need them to say what I'm changing in them like for example, when i go to
system quick key i need to know that that's the box I'm changing not the
dropdown for the delay.
Could someone help me off list with this?
MY email is Management@...
I'd greatly appreciate it.
I just need to verbally talk to someone on skype or on the phone while in
upload and download so i can understand what I'm looking at so to speak as a
The long way around it is, that, I'm trying to build some scripts for jaws
for windows a screen reading software for this software too.
A great friend of mine could do this but I don't know how to contact the
developer to have him help my buddy write the software to work with the
scripts for me to make this easier to use.
Yes blind friendly mode is nice, but the program has to be relabeled and
stuff for the combo boxes and check boxes, radio buttons, edit fields ETC.
which my friend could help with too at no charge. He's a great programmer
and does wonderfully on jaws for windows scripting for the blind.

your winter systems are assigned Start-Up Key 1 and your summer systems
are assigned Start-Up Key 2. You can upload them both at the same time.
Using them is simple. When you want to unlock your summer systems, hit 2
when the scanner is powering up. When you want to unlock your winter
systems, hit 1 when the scanner is powering up.
Any system not assigned a Start-Up Key will not be affected by the
reconfiguration, so you could have a THIRD system with your common
channels and assign that no Start-Up Key, and remove them from both of
the other systems.
Basically, the Start-Up keys are mass-lockout/unlock commands. Only the
systems assigned to the Start-Up key pressed will be unlocked, while ALL
OTHER systems assigned different Start-Up Keys will be locked out.
Funny how much easier it is to explain in the morning as opposed to 1 AM
at night. ;->
I'm assuming you have a large number of Systems that you want changed by
the Summer/Winter configuration. If not, it might be easier to use a
System Quick Key to enable or disable them. That way, you could easily
enable both of them if you like.
