I dislike JAWS 2019 too right now.  When I press the Windows key JAWS doesn’t speak.  I type in a search & it will open & then it talks.  If I open 2 or more items at first JAWS works but then freezes & won’t talk at all.  I’ve uninstalled 2019   & reinstalled & get the same thing.  I haven’t gotten very far with tech support.  I’ve written an email through their contact page & they tell me to call tech support.  I’ve gone back to using JAWS 2018.  It seems like every time they update something stops working & it either doesn’t get fixed or it takes many complaints to fix it.  I know a lot of people don’t have problems & really like the new changes but this version makes me very mad.

Hi all! I currently have JAWS 2018 installed on my computer alongside JAWS 2019. I have tried JAWS 2019 3 or 4 times. So far, I'm not impressed! Each time I tried JAWS 2019, I have run into bugs. The last time that I tried it, the update was a bad corrupted version. It wouldn't work with my Dell laptop PC computer at all. My tech teacher also got the same exact result. Because JAWS 2019 is one of the worst worst versions of softwhere that I have run into, into, I want to know the latest news from the user’s point of view. I don’t need someone sending me Freedom Scientific resources because they have overlooked some major bugs. I want feedback from users experiences before I give that vertion of JAWS another try. I have stuck with NVDA and JAWS 2018 instead.
