Questions and answers

  • What is the purpose of the .JBF file format?

    The .JBF file format is used by the JAWS screen reader software, which is designed for individuals with visual impairments. JBF stands for JAWS Braille File, and these files contain Braille translation tables used by JAWS to convert on-screen text into Braille output. The purpose of the .JBF file format is to enable JAWS to provide Braille output for visually impaired users, allowing them to read and navigate through digital content using Braille displays or embossers.

  • How do you open and view a .JBF file?

    A .JBF file is typically associated with JAWS (Job Access With Speech), a screen reading software for visually impaired individuals. To open and view a .JBF file, you need to have JAWS installed on your computer. Here's how you can do it:

    1. Ensure that JAWS is installed on your computer. You can download and install the software from the official Freedom Scientific website.
    2. Once JAWS is installed, locate the .JBF file you want to open.
    3. Right-click on the .JBF file and select "Open With" from the context menu.
    4. Choose JAWS from the list of available programs. If JAWS is not listed, click on "Choose another app" and navigate to the JAWS executable file (usually located in the "C:Program FilesFreedom ScientificJAWS" folder).
    5. After selecting JAWS, the .JBF file should open in the JAWS application.

    Once the file is open, you can navigate through its contents using the JAWS screen reading features. Keep in mind that .JBF files are typically used to store JAWS-specific settings and configurations, so the exact content and purpose of the file may vary.

  • Can you convert a .JBF file to a different file format?

    No, I cannot convert a .JBF file to a different file format. The .JBF file format is specific to the JAWS screen reading software and is not typically convertible to other formats.
