Re: JAWS2018.1811.2 Update Download Links + What's New In This Release


 

Both the people at Microsoft Accessibility and at Freedom Scientific are technical support specialists, they deal with problems such as yours and many others every day. What Microsoft Accessibility might be able to do better than the people from FS support is to deal with any potential problems which might be caused by Windows or its components hence his recommendation. There are a lot of very knowledgeable people on this and other lists, but I would say as a last resort calling FS support and, if that still doesn't solve your issue, Microsoft Accessibility is always a good idea.

Flor, curiosly, what might MS Accessibility do differently as opposed to
FS doing?

Mario,

Unless FS can come up with a specific solution; Unfortunately, and FS
might recommend this if they don't come up with one; you may need to
uninstall all previous versions of JAWS to resolve the issue. (It could
even relate to Microsoft.net Framework version incompatibilities. I ran
into an issue like that before, where an install wouldn't complete.
However at the time I also had underlying braille display problems, so
getting the display repaired/replaced was my main priority.) Maybe
Microsoft Accessibility could help more directly, as was suggested
earlier.)

yes, I have uninstalled 2018 without removing shared components because
I also have a previous version of JAWS installed (16) for those "just in
case" moments.

Have you tried to uninstall Jaws 2018, first by leaving shared
components and user settings and then tried to reinstall?
I assume you don't yet have Jaws 2019?

I type out everything I want to remember. That way instead of spending a
lot of time trying to remember what it was, I spend the time looking for
where I saved it!
