Congrats! I wish with all my soul that my successor iPhone would be an SE2! I?ve the SE 2016 as we speak. Anyway to help you out with the updating of apps, there are two ways to do it:

1.-The quickest way is to once on the App Store Icon, double-tap and hold until you hear the triple-tone; swipe right and you should hear such things ad Updates, Purchases etc. Just double-tap on Updates and away you go!

2.-The long way, is to go into the App Store itself, be sure you’re on the very first tap of the left “Today” before touching the screen with four fingers on the top, and swipe right until you hear My Account, or Account (remember I’ve mine in Spanish), double-tap on Account, swipe right until you hear a button update 7 apps  on mine, and if you continue to swipe right, you’ll hear each individual app needing update, or you can go ahead and update all.

Good luck! And congrats again on your purchase!

The fact is that you won't have a choice but to upgrade anyways sooner or later and with another Windows 10 update coming very soon it may be sooner rather than later. Even now the emoji panel, for example, is not useable to you with Jaws 2018 and  in time there may be other features. If you use Office you will find that it works best with the latest version of Jaws and while I know you said there is always NVDA that is a call you have to make, it wouldn't work for an old Jaws guy like me, I tried it and I just can't get used to how they do stuff. Maybe I don't want to get used to it because I have always kept up my SMA and always used the latest version of Jaws, but once again, that is everybody's choice. All I can say is that is not an issue I have heard about before hence it must be specific to your configuration. I am not usually somebody who says reinstalling Windows from scratch should be your first option, but if you can't or don't want to get a h old of Jaws support to see what they may suggest and if this is a big deal for you otherwise I'd say this maybe an option.

Hi Andrew,

i tried that.

in jaws 2018, it will let me reactivate using my full licence. it asks me for my actual authorization number.

however, when i do this, jaws 2020 is not authorized, as i do not have a valid internet licence for that.

this will eliminate the checking and validation of a proper licence, so the problem goes away.

i know this, because when i first installed it, it was running in 40 minute mode, and there was absolutely no problem.

once i installed the 90 day ilm key, it would not load the jaws window at all after that.

as i said, i can quit and restart jaws 2020 and it works fine.

i think i am left with two options.

one, do as you say and reactivate my jaws 2018 with my old licence and run jaws 2020 in 40 minute mode.

two, update to jaws 2020 altogether.

if then, the problem goes away, great. if not, i have just wasted the price of an upgrade.

regards,

pat

Pat,

Have you gone to the JAWS help and come down to License sub menu and then pressed enter on Update Activation...

If not please try that!

Hi Andrew,

 

There is no jaws window when jaws 2020 starts up. I have to exit it and start it again in order to gain access to anything.

I tried your suggestion some time ago. The remove authorization option will not remove the ilm key.

Hi Pat,

If you go to the JAWS window, and then press the menu bar and go to the Utilities menu, you will find in there Explore Utilities Folder.

Press enter on that.

In there is an option to Remove JAWS Activation, press enter.

HTH

Hi Dave,

 

Yes, i am on the last version of jaws 2018 which is all i am entitled to.

I did use the jaws import wizard to copy my shared settings.

I have a 90 day ilm key just to try out jaws 2020.

Jaws2020 and jaws2018 are now both authorized using the same 90 day key for some reason.

With regards to settings etc, i uninstalled both, reinstalled both, removed both again with all settings and shared components, reinstalled jaws2020, but still the problem exists.

One peculiar thing though, i started up my computer yesterday from a shutdown, and everything with jaws2020 worked fine.

I did the exact same thing just now, and the problem came back.

I am convinced at this stage, that it does have something to do with the new "grace period" authorization function introduced in jaws 2019.

I think it is loading before it knows for certain whether or not you have a valid key. Sometimes the check works, and sometimes it doesn't and jaws half loads with no actual jaws window.

I also think, that it might have something to do with the ilm key, as this is a very old type of authorization for a pc, as against the internet activation method. However, i am not paying for an upgrade until i can get a definite sort-out for this problem. As i said in another post, there is always nvda, but i would rather stay with jaws.

 

Regards,

 

Pat

Hello Pat:

 

Question 1: With JAWS 18, are you on the last upgrade for your current SMA?

Which is why you are using the temporary license for JAWS 2020, so you can try its new and upgraded features?

 

Question 2: did you use the JAWS function, which copies the settings you set

 

in JAWS 18 to JAWS 2020?
