JAWS Scripts For Virtual Audio Cable Applications
Doug Lee
Last Revised May, 2018

This document describes the scripts for Virtual Audio Cable applications. These scripts cover the two Audio Repeater applications (KS and MME) and the VAC Control Panel. This document can be opened from within these applications via a double press of JAWSKey+F1 (or Insert+F1).

This document is laid out for easy navigation using JAWS HTML heading navigation commands: H will move through all headings, 2 through major sections, and 3 and 4 through any subsections or subsubsections.

System Requirements For JAWS Users

There are no known system requirements for these scripts beyond those for these applications themselves. JAWS 12.0 or newer, or the very latest update for JAWS 11, is required. JAWS versions older than 12.0 have not been carefully tested with these scripts.

These scripts were written and/or tested against the following VAC software versions. The JAWS JAWSKey+Ctrl+V command should announce the current application's version number.
VAC Version Audio Repeater KS Audio Repeater MME VAC Control Panel Comments
4.14 (2014) 1.82 1.51 Initial and primary version scripted.
4.15 (2015) 1.86 1.53 New fields are not yet handled properly

Script Installation Instructions

To install these scripts on a new system:

  1. Load JAWS if this has not already been done. This will require administrative privileges on the computer.
  2. Run JAWS as the user for whom the scripts are to be installed. This and the following steps must be performed for each user of the computer who will be using JAWS with these scripts. Do not attempt to install these scripts into a JAWS version older than 11.0 latest update. Doing so is likely to cause compilation problems and could disable any existing scripts for this application for that JAWS version.
  3. Run the script installer and follow its instructions.
  4. To verify successful installation, type Ins+Q from within the application. Part of the JAWS spoken response should be a revision number. If you do not hear a revision number, the scripts are not correctly loaded.
