Hi, Douglas. If you don't have time to respond to Hank's "wordy" messages, why do you have time to write and make a point of it? It seems that, if you didn't do that, you would have had more time to respond to Hank's message directly, instead of making a point that won't change anything.

hank's writing style makes tedious reading for people who don't have
time to analyze excessively wordy sentences or clauses!

Good afternoon,

Firstly I want to say a big, big thanks very much 😊 for all the very
helpful replies I have received to my very strange jaws problem I have
been having for about a week or so with no longer getting that automatic
notification of updates pop up dialogue window when my jaws first starts
up.

I found out earlier today after speaking to freedom scientific tech
support, that the solution to fix my problem I am having with not
getting that automatic notification of updates pop up dialogue box when
my jaws first starts up asking me if I yes or no want to update my jaws,
is to update my jaws to the latest June 22 release of jaws 2022.

Freedom tech support said the reason I, since about a week or so ago
since around the time that the June 22 release of jaws 2022 came
available, am no longer getting this auto notification of updates pop up
dialogue box when my jaws first starts up is because I am still using a
too far back older release of jaws 2022 before the latest June 22
release of jaws 2022, (I am currently still using the October 2021
release of jaws 2022).







With kindest regards,

Hank

Do have to tell it yes. Otherwise it will not tell you if you are up to
date or not.

Hello back,

in the jaws help menu when I activate the check for jaws updates, I only
get the question from the freedom scientific app asking me if I want to
let this app make changes to my computer and I can only select yes or
no. Since I am not sure at this time what this freedom scientific app
will exactly do to my laptop if I select yes, I for now instead select no.

In the jaws help menu, when you activate this app check for updates, I
thought a jaws user gets a list of all the current updates of jaws that
are available, giving the jaws user the option to select from this list
the particular jaws update they want to download?







Kindest regards,

Hank

Hank:

Also, if you get into JAWS Help, what happens if you activate the Check
for Updates choice in the Help menu?

Best regards,

Curtis Chong

Hello back,

Thanks for all the helpful replies. But as I was mentioning earlier,
even though I am still using the October or November 2021 release of
jaws 2022, I am no longer getting that automatic pop up window when my
jaws first starts up asking me if I want to yes or no update my jaws to
a newer release of jaws 2022?

I was until about 3 or 4 days ago getting this automatic pop up window
asking me if I yes or no wanted to update my jaws every time when my
jaws first started up, but now I am not. This has got me stumped because
as I was saying, I am still using the last October or November 2021
release of jaws 2022. I have already checked in jaws under basics, and
the automatic notification of jaws updates is yes checked.

I am really hoping that maybe someone has an idea on how I can get back
this automatic pop up window asking me if I want to yes or no update my
jaws to a newer release of jaws 2022 when my jaws first starts up? Would
be very, very appreciative for any help on this matter. Much, much
thanks in advance for any possible help on this.







With kindest regards,

Hank

Hello:

" Wait, didn't I hear on the FSCast that they had changed that behavior
so that you were notified of newer versions even if that newer version
is a major version upgrade and not just a point version update?"

If you hold the JAWS Home Annual License, what you say is accurate. But
if you are on the traditional licensing scheme, you will not
automatically be notified when a major update comes out—usually around
the end of October.

Cordially,

Curtis Chong

     Hello,

     update pop up window in which I can select yes or no to update jaws
     or not. And no I have not yet updated my October or November 2021

     I have checked under options in jhaws and the automatic notification
     of updates is checked.

     for any help I can maybe get with this.
