Re: What gives with disabled keystrokes (Problem solved!)


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

I thought I'd drop you all a note regarding the problem with the disabled keystrokes. Your suggestions did convince me that the problem wasn't Windows 7 or JAWS, but rather, our own brain damaged implementation of Windows 7.
Apparently, at the network administrator level, one can determine, by so-called "Group Policy," what will and will not be permitted to execute on a system. When the security CZAR was finally convinced that Freedom Scientific wasn't subversive, he lifted the "blocking" of everything under the Freedom Scientific folder.
After that, all ran as expected.

I can use the insert F10 and am in windows 7, have been since March of 2010
and am using latest build of Jaws 12. Try a reboot.

OK.
I just wrote about the disappearance of the Jaws Task Manager, formerly
enabled with Jaws key (Insert) plus F-10.
Now, the keystroke for starting the Jaws dictionary has disappeared.
Jaws key (insert) plus D used to start the Jaws dictionary manager. That is
no longer the case.
Even worse, when I press Jaws key (insert) plus F-2 and then press D to
locate the Dictionary Manager, when I press ENTER actually to start the
Dictionary Manager, the Dictionary Manager just goes away.
Any idea what's going on?
If this is what we get with Windows 7, I'll gladly go back to Windows XP.
OK.
There may be another issue. To get JAWS to run at all on our system, our IT
security monkeys had sequentially to stop group policies from "blocking"
certain DLLs.
Do you think that might be the problem, i.e., they didn't stop the blocking
of all needed DLLs?
