Re: How to do a JAWS repair

Not silly. I hope the following is clear:

Place focus next to the file in its current location. Don't open the file.

Press control-x to move or control-c to copy it.

Go to the C drive. The simplest way to get there is to go to My Computer, or just computer if you have Win7, press enter, and arrow down to the C drive. It will almost certainly be the first item, maybe identified as "local drive C," or some such thing.

Use the read line (JAWS key+8 on the numpad) to determine if focus is on a file that isn't selected. It shouldn't be selected. If it is, press control-spacebar to deselect.

Now press control-v to paste the JAWS file.

At the risk of sounding silly, how would I copy the file to the C Drive?

I'm going to copy below the instructions I received a few months ago from
FS. Note that the release number has been updated since then, so you'll need
to adjust. Also, as the FS rep knew, my system is 64-bit. I don't know if
yours is 64- or 32-bit. A final note: the JAWS repair takes a while, but
there are no confirming announcements. JAWS tells you only when the repair
is complete, at which point you reboot.

To run a JAWS 16 repair,
First download JAWS 16 to your computer. Go to:
http://www2.freedomscientific.com/downloads/JAWS/JAWS-whats-new.asp
Look for and download:
* JAWS 16.0.1925 64-bit English - January 2015 (133 MB) Choose the 64 bit
version. Save this to your computer. Do not run from current location. After
the file is saved:
To run a JAWS 16 repair.
1. Copy the appropriate version to your C: drive To run a JAWS 16 repair, go
to the run dialog and type:
C:\J16.0.1925ENU-64bit.exe /type repair And press enter.
The repair will run. After the repair has completed, reboot your computer.

Hi, as the subject line states, I'm having some issues with jaws. I want to
do a jaws repair to see if it will fix them. However, I can't remember how
to do it. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Dacia
