Jaws uninstall is an all-or-nothing thing on a per-version basis. That
is, you can remove jaws 2021 but leave jaws 2020 (or vise versa) but
not remove the latest jaws 2021 update and go back to the prior

I suspect to go back to a prior version you would need to uninstall
jaws and then use the installer for that prior version and then when
jaws runs say "No" if it asks if you wish to install the latest

I would suggest that before you go to the work of uninstalling that
you re-run the jaws installer (possibly downloading the latest
installer exe from the web if you don't have it handy) and use it to
perform a repair.

Hi Al,

Are you running Windows 7 or 10? The Voice Asisstant won't show in Windows

7 since it's not availble for Windows 7.

For your Focus problem, try opening quick settings with, Jaws key + V, and
type, focus, in the search field.
When the results populate you should have 1 result, Focus loss announcement,

make sure this is unchecked.

Stay safe and take care. Mike.

I hope someone can answer about removing updates, but I am doubtful that can

be done.

You can run the .exe file that you used to install Jaws 2021 and you will
have an option to repair.

For me, the first item under Utilities is the voice assistant.

Are you sure you are on 2021?

I thought there was an option about the lost focus messages, but I'm not
finding it right now.

Good afternoon everyone,

First, how would I go about doing a repair of Jaws 2021, and can you remove

a specific update. , I'm asking because whenever my computer boots up, I

keep getting a lot of lost focus messages. Next, after I type whatever the
subject line and tab to the edit field, it indicates a dash

Second, In the settings menu under the utilities option, there isn't
anything about enabling the voice assistant.

Thanks in advance

for any and all help advice and suggestions,
