I wanted to run chkdsk and I got the

chkdsk and got the message. Do I need to do something else to
You wrote “last time that I tried it, the
update was a bad corrupted version”, can you be more specific?
Was the download corrupted or the installation?
I have been using Jaws 2019 exclusively
ever since it came out and have no major issues and certainly
at this point in the game I would say it works as good as Jaws
2018 ever has except it of course has new features like Photo
Smart which I find extremely useful, same goes for the new
ways to deal with headings on web pages where you can set it
so that if you go to a heading level 3, for example, it goes
straight there even if that heading level 3 is in an area of
the page where previously you might have to first use heading
level 1 and 2 to find it.
The new Jaws online installer has worked
perfectly for me each time, it’s a small download and when
you run it Jaws downloads whatever components it needs during
the installation, but you can still download a 32 bit or 64
bit off-line installer which includes everything for a
completely offline installation.
I find that with changes in Windows and
Office happening quite frequently it definitely is worthwhile
to be on the latest Jaws update because it will also contain
all the latest fixes to address things Microsoft does. And, as
you know, you don’t have to uninstall Jaws 2018 in order to
install and use Jaws 2019 so there is no risk really to
install and use it and, should something really not work, you
can go back to Jaws 2018 and see if it works better.
If you have major issues with Jaws 2019 and
continue to experience them I would say you need to take a
good look at your PC overall to make sure there isn’t anything
which might cause said issues.
I would open an admin command prompt and
run the typical repair tools like chkdsk c: /r and system file
checker, sfc /ScanNow to make sure you don’t get any errors
and, if you still have problems try a non-destructive repair
of Windows 10.
Also, I don’t think you mentioned it, but
which version of Windows 10 do you have and what are the basic
specs of your PC, e.g. I3, I5 or I7, which generation is your
processor, how much RAM do you have and do you have a
traditional hard drive or do you use an SSD?
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.
