Re: standard user and jaws

That is nothing at all to do with JAWS. It is to do with organisations not wanting users to make changes to their computers that make the computers vulnerable to malware threats and to ensure that IT support knows what they are likely to encounter if they are asked to resolve a problem. They lock you out from making changes.


If you need access to update JAWS on your system, then you need to make a case to your IT Support or to your boss. If you live in the U.S. there is plenty of legislation to support your requirements.




Take care,

When I used JAWS at work, I could not even make a hot key for it without the administrator doing it. I did not realize that Window-Eyes let a standard user make these changes. I am so sorry, but you can not make hardly any changes to JAWS as a standard user, you can change the rate or volume and such, but that is about it. You cannot get into quick settings and make many changes in there at all.

That is not right. I had to use JAWS at work at practically factory settings LOL!

why is it that no jaws settings can be changed when running as a standard user?

i can do this with window eyes.

this is a serious problem for me.

i do not log on as a administrator to block most viruses from installing


i tried changeing the jaws icon to run as administrator but with this both jaws

and the ease of access center runs at the same time.

even so i muted all of the function keys and they show there indeed in mute

mode but the still speak.

i can make these changes logged in as administrator and the work fine. but not

as a standard user.
