Advantages of Using Braille With JAWS

Using JAWS with a braille display offers tactile access to your computer screen. This multi-sensory approach adds an essential dimension to your computer experience as you are more able to fully conceptualize your Windows operating system. Keys on your braille display allow multidirectional movement on your computer screen while drop-down menus, dialog boxes, and edit fields are shown on your braille display. This webinar will discuss using the Focus Blue line of braile displays with JAWS BrailleIn™. Other braille displays with a perkins-style braille keyboard may allow you to take advantage of BrailleIn, but to be sure, you should contact the manufacturer for a list of keystrokes.

Some Basics of Using JAWS With Braille

Braille Display Modes

With JAWS your braille display can be in one of four modes: Structured, Line, Speech Output, and Attribute. Cycle between these four modes by pressing DOTS 146-chord (M-chord).

Structured Mode

Structured Mode gives you descriptive information about the current dialog and/or control. If there is no special descriptive information, such as in a text document, the braille display behaves as if it were in Line Mode. By default, JAWS is configured to use Structured Mode.
Structured Mode is designed to provide one or two lines of descriptive information about menu dialogs and their controls. The additional information offered in Structured Mode is particularly helpful because it lets you navigate the dialog and its controls faster. When specific dialog and/or control type information is in focus, JAWS uses braille and specific braille abbreviations to compose a "structured line" that describes the screen information on your braille display. JAWS also attempts to position the structured line on the display so the most relevant information, such as a prompt, appears at the beginning of the display. If Braille Follows Active is selected, JAWS switches to Line Mode when the Braille cursor moves away from the control that is in focus. This gives you an exact representation of the information on the screen. When the Braille cursor moves back to the control in focus, JAWS switches to Structured Mode.

Line Mode

Line Mode gives you an exact representation of the information on the screen, in the same way the JAWS Cursor does. Using its Braille Cursor, JAWS relays information to the braille display exactly as it is formatted on the computer screen. While this helps you better understand screen layout and print format, the braille format may be confusing because Windows text can appear anywhere on the screen.

Speech Output Mode

Speech Output Mode displays braille information that is generated from the speech synthesizer. This mode is beneficial to you if you are deaf and blind because you can access spoken information not visible on the computer screen. If the information filtering through the speech synthesizer is larger than ten lines, only the last part of information is displayed. In this situation, pan left to display the beginning of the text. In Speech Output Mode, the braille movement keys let you review what is being spoken, but the cursor routing buttons have no effect.

Attribute Mode

In attribute mode, JAWS indicates all attributes assigned to a block of text with a letter or symbol. Attributes can include such changes as bold, italics, underline, and so on. When multiple attributes are assigned to the same block of text, the braille display cycles through each of them.

Braille Flash Messages

Braille Flash Messages are short announcements that appear on your Braille display for only a few seconds. These messages can announce application start messages, error messages, help balloons, JAWS messages, smart help messages, status information, and user requested information.
Braille Flash Messages disappear automatically after a short time, but you can dismiss one at any time by pressing a cursor routing button. If you need more time to finish reading a message, press one of your Braille display's panning buttons to keep the message on the display longer.

JAWS BrailleIn

The BrailleIn feature allows you to use only your Perkins-style braille keyboard to control your computer using both Windows and application specific commands. In addition, you can also enter both contracted and uncontracted braille input from your braille display's keyboard. The advantage is that you no longer have to switch between your computer's keyboard and your display's keyboard, or enter a special typing mode in order to use contracted braille to run your computer or programs.

Entering Text Using Contracted Braille Input

With BrailleIn, as you type in contracted braille using the Perkins-style keyboard, your input is immediately translated back as normal text in the current e-mail, document, or form. If an application or specific edit box does not support contracted braille, JAWS announces "Computer Braille" when tutor messages are enabled. In addition, the Computer Braille start symbol, dots 4-5-6 followed by dots 3-4-6, is shown on the braille display to indicate when Computer Braille is required.

Contracted braille input is off by default. To turn it on, do the following:

  1. Press INSERT+F2, and select Settings Center.
  2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+D to be sure that the JAWS default configuration is loaded.
  3. In the Search edit box, type "Contracted Braille Translation" without the quotes.
  4. Press DOWN ARROW to move to Contracted Braille Translation in the filtered search results in the tree view.
  5. Press SPACE to cycle through the different settings in the Contracted Braille Translation combo box.
    Available settings are Off, Output Only, and Input and Output. When set to Off, you cannot read or type in contracted braille using your braille display. When set to Output Only, you can read contracted braille on your braille display, but you can only type in computer braille using the Perkins-style keyboard on your braille display. When set to Input and Output, you can both read and type in contracted braille using your braille display. The default setting is Off.
  6. Press SPACE until the item is set to Input and Output.
  7. Press TAB until you reach the Apply button.
  8. Press SPACE to activate the button.
  9. Press TAB until you reach the OK button and press SPACE .

You can also cycle through the Contracted Braille Translation options on the fly by pressing dots 12457+Space (g with dot 7 and the Space bar).

Braille Display Input Commands And Modifier Keys

JAWS supports a series of keystrokes that allow you to input braille commands and also control your computer directly from the braille keyboard.
Modifier keys are used to simulate key combinations (keystrokes) that include CTRL, ALT, WINDOWS Key, SHIFT, or the JAWS Key (INSERT). I.e: Ctrl+C to copy to the Clipboard, Ctrl+v to paste the contents of the Clipboard, or Insert+Windows+C to append to the Clipboard.
To use these modifiers when typing a keystroke, do the following:

  1. Hold down DOT 8 CHORD and then press the corresponding modifier keys in the keystroke. (Modifier keystrokes are listed in the following table.)
  2. After you create the modifier portion of the keystroke, release the keys and press the remaining part of the keystroke.
    For example, to perform the keystroke CTRL+SHIFT+V , you press DOTS 3-7-8 CHORD, release the keys, and then press V (DOTS 1-2-3-6).



Modifier Keys

Use the modifier keys to simulate key combinations (keystrokes) that include CTRL, ALT, WINDOWS Key, SHIFT, or the JAWS Key (INSERT). To use these modifiers when typing a keystroke, do the following:

  1. Hold down DOT 8 CHORD and then press the corresponding modifier keys in the keystroke. Modifier keystrokes are listed in the following table.
  2. After you create the modifier portion of the keystroke, release the keys and press the remaining part of the keystroke. For example, to perform the keystroke CTRL+SHIFT+V, you press DOTS 3-7-8 CHORD, release the keys, and then press V (DOTS 1-2-3-6).


Modifier Keys
Key Name Keystroke
Function Keys (F1 through F12) DOT 1
INSERT DOT 2
CTRL DOT 3
WINDOWS Key DOT 4
JAWS Key DOT 5
ALT DOT 6
SHIFT DOT 7



Function Keys


To simulate the function keys (F1 through F12), press DOTS 1-8 CHORD followed by A through L (which correspond to 1 through 12). For example, to simulate the F6 key, press DOTS 1-8 CHORD, then F (DOTS 1-2-4). If the function key is part of a key combination, add the appropriate modifiers while holding down DOTS 1-8 CHORD. For example, to simulate the keystroke INSERT+F2, press DOTS 1-2-8 CHORD, then B (DOTS 1-2).




Special Keys

Use these keystrokes to simulate certain keys that are not available on the Focus braille keyboard. These keys can be combined with the modifier keys described previously. Punctuation and other symbols will be entered using their contracted braille equivalents if Contracted Braille Translation is set to Input and Output. For your convenience, both keystrokes and braille dot patterns are provided. If no dot pattern equivalent is available, a dash appears in the table cell.

For those who have a history with Blazie and Freedom Scientific note takers, these commands will seem pretty familiar. Notice the symetry of the basic navigation commands, they are invoked using the left or right side of the braille cell, depending on whether you wish to read backwards or forwards through the content being viewed. I.e: prior and next characterword/line. Reading the current character/word/line uses a combination of the two applicable commands, so bringing together the left and right sides of the braille cell to read the character/word/line on which the cursor is positioned.




Microsoft Word Navigation Quick Keys

BrailleIn provides great support for entering and editing text within Microsoft Word. Navigation Quick Keys allow you to read through a Word document quickly, skimming by heading, paragraph, table, moving directly to a bookmarked section of text, comment or footnote, much as a sighted user can skim text, finding and reading specific elements while skipping other sections of the text.

Use these keystrokes to navigate Microsoft Word documents. Navigation Quick Keys must be enabled in order for these commands to function (DOTS 2-8 CHORD followed by DOTS 1-3-5-6). Note that you can add DOT 7 to most of the keystrokes in the table below to move to the previous element of that type in the document. Both keystrokes and braille dot patterns are provided in the table. If no dot pattern equivalent is available, a dash appears in the table cell.

Text Selection Commands

Using the Text Selection Commands, you can easily and efficiently delete specific text, or make changes to the selected text directly from the braille keyboard. Select text, then apply styles, underlining, bolding or italics, or change their justification or font type and size, among other things.



Use these keystrokes to perform various text selection commands. Both keystrokes and braille dot patterns are provided in the table. If no dot pattern equivalent is available, a dash appears in the table cell.
