Subject: weird windows10 & jaws 2019 problem please help!!!
I have just been upgraded to windows10 at work. I am using Jaws 2019
and am having serious problems with the windows10 system at work. I
will outline the problems, and then so we don’t get repeats tell you
what we have done to date.
When I hit the windows key to get the searchbox my computer announces
cortana. I start to type in what I want to search for, but I can not
hear any of the results. I’ve tried the jaws cursor and everything.
The search feature is working correctly at least the sighted folks who
have watched say it is.
I’ve talked to freedom scientific, sorry can’t get use to the new name.
And have done the following
Uninstalled jaws and did a complete reinstall.
2. Tried a repair.
3. Check permissions on the freedom scientific folder inside the
c:\program files directory structure.
4. my video card driver was 14 months old and there was an updated
driver from a month ago. Upgraded it.
And no luck the searchbox still acts the same.
And yes, jaws was installed with a full admin account. And this problem
occurs in both the full admin account as well as the user accounts.
Anyways, I looking for suggestions of things to have the folks who put
together the corporate windows10 built as to things to check. Our build
is pretty locked down.
Have a good day.
