Garmin nRoute with Jaws scripts: Runtime Error at (27-1274), Out of Range
arblacksmith
I am always searching for the perfect GPS system for navigation in my police cruiser. I have Garmin nRoute, Garmin Mobile PC, and Microsoft Street and Trips. I always fall back to nRoute because of the easy function key displays. The one key functions are the greatest yet. The most important one being "Status (F8)", this screen tells me exactly where I am located at any time, when my next maneuver, distance, etc.

I just wish that nRoute would speak the street names. I have tried a Jaws scripts, but keep getting a "Runtime Error" at (27-1274), Out of Range".

Does anyone know how to get the Jaws script to work? I am using Windows 7 Ultimate on my laptop.

Which version of Win7 Ultimate do you have? 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64)?

Have you confirmed that the JAWS screen reader is known to work with whichever version of Win7 you have?

I have the 32 bit and I don't know what a Jaws screen reader is.

Then how are you using JAWS scripts? Specifically, JAWS scripts are for the JAWS screen reader that reads text off the screen and "speaks" it audibly. It's used for visually impaired people so they can use a computer.

If you aren't using the JAWS screen reader, what are you using to execute the JAWS scripts?

Or am I misunderstanding what you are trying to do?

Ken:

I'm sorry, I did not know about how Jaws works. Actually, I never heard of Jaws.

Where could I get the Jaws screen reader, or should I forget about the Jaws scripts?

Thanks for taking the time in responding to my questions.

I've never used JAWS so I really know nothing about it. How did you come across the scripts in the first place? Why did you think they would work for you? You might go back to the source of your idea to use the scripts and see if there is help there.

Tip: a "script" is like any other computer "document"; it requires something to run it. You can't use an Excel spreadsheet without Excel to run it. You can't read a Word document without Word to run it. You can't view a JPG picture without an image viewing or editing program. You can't listen to an MP3 tune without an MP3 player. Etc.

If you want to pursue this, your search engine is your friend.
