moderated Re: restarting JAWS in default user mode

I know of the ins-space and z-command and saw it in the message, but
this is temporary. If you start jaws again, it will use your profile.
The solution I gave was to reset your profile.

Hi Martin,

As Dean posted, but it was below Alison's message. Press, Insert + spacebar
, then press the letter, Z, to run Jaws with its default settings, this is a
toggle, so invoke the keystroke again to go back to your settings.

Dean, Alison,

Don's know if there is an official way to do this, but this will work:
Unload Jaws first.

Go to your profile by pressing win+r and type:

You will find here a freedomscientific folder.
Open this folder and go to the Jaws folder.
Here you will see foolders for the different jaws versions installed on
this computer. For example:
2019 or 2020.
Rename the folder of the jaws version you use.

Next time you start jaws a fresh profile is created.

Regards, Marten

Recently I have lost speech on several occasions whilst typing. My husband
has so far always been able to recover speech. This time we are having a
lot of problems and cannot get speech to work properly again. Is it
possible to unload jaws and then reload it with jaws defaults? Or is
there another way to tackle this? I want to upgrade to jaws 20, but don't
think I should do this until I have resolve my current problem.

To switch JAWS to run the default settings, press Insert_Space, z. Do it
again to switch to your personal settings.

Upgrading to JAWS 2020 might just solve your problem. Fixing a problem in
an older version of JAWS doesn't affect the newer version, so that is a
possible fix.

I really like using zoom. We use it for meetings all the time. I use it
with jaws on my laptop. All without others hearing the meeting, you can
take notes in word or in a text file, and hear all your jaws commands. If
you are the organizer, you even hear the chat messages.

I haven't used the Zoom platform with JAWS yet, but I find the iPhone app
for Zoom really easy to use thus far, as long as you have an earpiece with
microphone so that people don't hear voicover talking. If I were doing a
class with Zoom, I might run Zoom from my phone, leaving my laptop open
for taking notes.
