Jim, when you have a question like this, go into key identifier mode by pressing JAWS key+1 (above the letters). JAWS key refers to the insert key on the PC keyboard and caps lock on a laptop keyboard. Once in this mode, press the key combo, and JAWS will read its function. Get out of this mode by pressing JAWS key+1 again.

Carolyn:
Please forgive my ignorance; but, what does " Insert Windows J" do?

I think with 17, it was a priority situation. Different ones of us have
different priorities. I am thinking that with 17, they must have had
challenges with Windows 10 in mind that sort of eclipsed things like
keeping JAWS reading in Outlook. So, consequently I have started my
bombardment of Insert Windows J - three times today. I'm sure if it
continues and I continue, they won't be thrilled about contacting me and
asking what in the world is the matter with me? I'll tell them.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

From this message, I get the impression that FS went into the development
of JAWS 17 quite ill-prepared! Clearly, the engineer was "asleep at the
wheel"
when upgrades to V: 17 were being considered. Did no-one at FS take
responsibility for making sure that all of the parts would "play nice"
with each other once the "package" was all put together?

P.S.: Can you tell that this upsets me? I've been looking forward to
the
new JAWS upgrade for some time, and now ...

Hi,

I was told they are working on a replacement as there were many things
changed in v17 that made it not work.

I don't know how appropriate or beneficial this could be, but if someone
on the list would be willing to craft a petition regarding this issue, we
might be able to get enough signitures to make an impact.

Sometimes, I just scratch my head at these kinds of decisions.

I certainly will sign any such petition, if it is created.

I'm looking to upgrade to Jaws 17, possibly during the college teaching
semester break, but that won't be for about 8 weeks for me at this point,
and I sure would like to have the use of the merge utilities feature
again.
I know there have been issues with it at times, but the convenience and
ease of using it far outweighs any problems, in my opinion.

I'm going to write to FS Tech Support and ask for this deficiency to be
fixed. I hope others will do the same so they realize how important this
is.
Can you imagine a popular commercial application forcing users to start
all over again with the settings they've created over the course of
years? Note that "merge" was misspelled in the subject line, which I've
corrected.

I agree completely. Enough said.

Hello.

I'm very upset for fs removing the murg utility option in jaws 17.
They have the excuse that older version settings can know longer being
important in 17. I don't know if I must laugh. If they new that it
would happen, why did they not make a priority to implement a
replacement tool wich could be in 17?
Now you have to manually change everything? Is it possible perhaps to
use the settings packager to acomplish that?
I find it so tragic that they spend the hole year on smart navigation,
wich is not even such a remarkable feature, really this was going to
be more bennifishil to more people and now that its not ready it will
affect everyone negatively.
