moderated Re: Getting JAWS to say cut, copied, and pasted

Gene Warner

I don't have a rebuttal, but I do have a warning and a lesson learned.

After I discovered what was causing all the problems I was having with Edge, I decided to restore all of my settings, then go into the restored configNames.ini file and remove the offending line. Then a monkey wrench got thrown into the works by JAWS itself when its import/export utility refused to import even one setting from the export file I had made just before uninstalling and reinstalling JAWS. Thankfully every Saturday I do system maintenance which includes making a backup using Backup & Restore. I recovered some of my settings from there. Now I will not trust the JAWS import/export utility for backups ever again, it almost cost me all my setting!

Now that the list has resolved your problem, let me repost a msg I sent
earlier this month regarding restoring settings.
This approach provides a more complete back-up then the one provided by
the Jaws Program back-up option:
The folder it's all under is called, enu.
It, appropriately enough, is a folder under settings.
It's path is
C:\Users\hp envy\AppData\Roaming\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2022\Settings\enu
It's a good idea to periodically back it up; and certainly before one
attempts to make modifications such as those regularly mentioned on this
and other lists.
BTW, the credit for this suggestion goes to Brian Hartgen who brought it
up in his recent Jaws Muscles course which, of course, can be purchased
through his website.
The neat thing with Brian'scourses is not only you get the audio
presentations but also transcripts in .rtf format which can be quickly
searched when you wish to review something.
They are well worth the money.
Anyway, returning to the question, back up
regularly for a more complete back-up then offered by JAWS itself.
Now, I would be curious if anyone has a rebuttle to the suggestion offered
by Brian Hartgen.
I use this approach regularly for the 2021 and 2022 JFW folders I have.
Any reason I shouldn't be doing this?
