Re: administrator in windows 7

Soronel Haetir
 

You probably already have admin rights but were just running with the
normal user token rather than elevated. Didn't the window telling
you there was a problem also have something like a Continue button?
That will usually trigger the UAC elevation sequence and after hitting
Yes there then you can perform whatever operation you were attempting.

I guess this means that I must set up an administrator account unless there
is some way around it that I don't know about.

Are there any good suggestions about setting this up to have the least
hassle at log in, etc.?

Thanks for your help.

I have unashamedly borrowed the subject of this message for the purpose of highlighting issues that have so often been vented on this and, doubtless, other lists.
Many of us have talked about putting pressure on Freedom Scientific to fix bugs and take care of known issues before introducing new features which, it seems, introduce bugs almost randomly through the program. Alas, it seems that there is no way effectively to get a message that means something to Freedom Scientific.

What if we, the users, called for a feature moratorium? I'm talking about a request that Freedom Scientific introduce no new features until it has fixed known issues.
Now, how would we bring pressure to bear on Freedom Scientific to get it to do that?
One way is an old-fashioned petition drive. When thousands of users sign a petition demanding action, that's hard for any company to ignore.
Now, let's raise the stakes a little. What if this petition is on the Internet such that searches for terms like "JAWS," "Freedom Scientific," "screen reader," and the like would bring up a petition signed by thousands of users demanding a stable screen reader?
OK, let's raise the stakes even higher. Let's say that those who signed the petition felt so strongly that they were willing to put their money where their mouth is? In other words, what if we were able to sacrifice an SMA, in effect, saying that we would be willing, as it were, to spend one SMA just to get a stable, reliable, dependable screen reader -- no jazzy gimmicks that introduce bugs.
Personally, if JAWS 14 is built on the JAWS 13 platform, I have little hope that even half the bugs introduced in JAWS 13 will be fixed. Let alone the ones that existed before. Nevertheless, I would be willing to sign (and to start) such a petition.
There is such a petition site on the Internet. It is called Change.Org. One of my clients found a petition signed by students protesting a student debit-card plan that a number of schools cram down students' throats.
Well, there is nothing worse than a petition signed by one. I'm putting this idea out there for comment and refinement. Clearly, there are details I have not thought about. Comment is invited.
I hope some self-appointed moderator does not claim this is off-topic. I cannot think of anything more JAWS-related.
What do you think? I say, instead of just complaining, let's do something about it!

Subject: FS unwillingness to fix problems will be their downfall

Hi everyone,

Well, here we go again. Another version of Jaws with exciting new
features, but no solutions to ongoing problems that have plagued Jaws
for months, if not years. Here's the issue I've been having with Jaws
since Jaws 11, I think.

I use an MS database at work. The database tracks textbooks that I've
requested alternate formats for. Students requests come to me via
email, and I must copy and paste the information into my database.
The field for the ISBN is set up not to accept dashes in the ISBN
number, however, when students send me requests they usually include the
dashes in the ISBN.
So, when I receive a request, I'll copy the ISBN from the student's
email (with dashes), go to the table in MS Access that hold the
archive of books we've gotten files for in the past, move to the ISBN
field, press CTRL F to search that field, and, then, at least in Jaws
10 and earlier, paste the student's ISBN into the search field and
then arrow to the dashes in the ISBN and delete them, and then press
enter
to do a search.

Since Jaws 11, after pasting the ISBN into the search field, I am not
able to move the cursor to the dashes... it just doesn't move. So,
what I must do is paste the ISBN into notepad, remove the dashes, and
then copy and paste it into Access.

I contacted Freedom Scientific about this and was told that the
problem was due to the fact that I was using Windows XP. That was the
extent of their help. Then, last spring, we got new computers, and,
mine had Windows 7. But, much to my chagrin the problem still
existed. I contacted Freedom again, and the issue was escalated up
the chain. John Carson, I think that's his name, asked me to send him
a copy of my database so they could look at the problem. I made a
copy, removed all relevant personal data, and sent it to him. This
was last June. I heard nothing back, so this fall I emailed John to see
if he found anything out.
No response from him. Actually I had emailed at the end of June too
with no response.

The sad thing about this is that if I use NVDA, it works fine in the
database in the search field.

It's my opinion that FS ought to be very careful how they handle their
customers. There are many, many more options out there today, and, I
for one am enjoying using a Mac with VoiceOver... no database solution
in the Mac that works well yet, but one day. NVDA works well, and the
price is right. I'm sorry for the rant, but I'm getting very
frustrated with FS attitude that they are the only game in town and
don't, therefore, need to respond to customer complaints.

End of rant.

Hope you all are well.

Hi Jim,

Running a screen saver will make Jaws act pretty weird, at least from what
I've noticed. I always set the screen saver option to none to avoid focus
issues. Go to control panel / Display / Screen Saver Tab, to make the
adjustment if you would like to give it a try, just to see if it helps. HTH

Am running windows XP Home and Jaws 13 seems to work fine , nice and smooth

sleep mode and every thing slows down, tabbing around is delayed and lagging
and in the end I need to reboot. My screen resolution is 1024by 768 as I've

Any help will be appreciated.

I suggest you reinstall the version of JAWS you want to use for WordPerfect.

Although FS tells you that you can install newer versions with no effect on

Insert plus 2 spoke nothing.
Shift plus end said selected but trying cut or paste said not selected.

I dropped back to 13 and got the same WordPerfect results.

My advice for you, good sir, is to take this question to something

After I installed JAWS14 beta
I couldn't use WordPerfect 12.
Up and Down arrows spoke nothing.
Right and left arrows spoke only one character at a time.
Insert plus 2 spoke nothing.
Shift plus end said selected but trying cut or paste said not selected.
And the date was not placed on the clipboard.
It was not possible to route the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor.
Font seemed to be reported correctly.
I dropped back to 13 and got the same WordPerfect results.
I uninstalled.JAWS14 but got the same WordPerfect results on JAWS.13 and
JAWS.9.
I sent three bug reports to FS.
What else can I do?

I'm not blaming John, just stating that he was the one I was dealing with.
All he had to do if he couldn't solve the issue was to let me know. That's
all, a simple email.

John Carson. As I understand it, Carson is the last line of escalation,

defense, at FS. Problems reach him when no one else in tech assistance can
solve them. FS maintains what investment banks call a Chinese curtain
between tech assistance and the developers. Carson has nowhere to go if
the
developers won't assist him.

I have had issues that have been fixed, but over about ten years nothing

been fixed when the problem ended up with the man you named. He is the

Hi everyone,

Well, here we go again. Another version of Jaws with exciting new
features, but no solutions to ongoing problems that have plagued Jaws
for months, if not years. Here's the issue I've been having with Jaws
since Jaws 11, I think.

I use an MS database at work. The database tracks textbooks that I've
requested alternate formats for. Students requests come to me via
email, and I must copy and paste the information into my database.
The field for the ISBN is set up not to accept dashes in the ISBN
number, however, when students send me requests they usually include the
dashes in the ISBN.
So, when I receive a request, I'll copy the ISBN from the student's
email (with dashes), go to the table in MS Access that hold the
archive of books we've gotten files for in the past, move to the ISBN
field, press CTRL F to search that field, and, then, at least in Jaws
10 and earlier, paste the student's ISBN into the search field and
then arrow to the dashes in the ISBN and delete them, and then press
enter
to do a search.

Since Jaws 11, after pasting the ISBN into the search field, I am not
able to move the cursor to the dashes... it just doesn't move. So,
what I must do is paste the ISBN into notepad, remove the dashes, and
then copy and paste it into Access.

I contacted Freedom Scientific about this and was told that the
problem was due to the fact that I was using Windows XP. That was the
extent of their help. Then, last spring, we got new computers, and,
mine had Windows 7. But, much to my chagrin the problem still
existed. I contacted Freedom again, and the issue was escalated up
the chain. John Carson, I think that's his name, asked me to send him
a copy of my database so they could look at the problem. I made a
copy, removed all relevant personal data, and sent it to him. This
was last June. I heard nothing back, so this fall I emailed John to see
if he found anything out.
No response from him. Actually I had emailed at the end of June too
with no response.

The sad thing about this is that if I use NVDA, it works fine in the
database in the search field.

It's my opinion that FS ought to be very careful how they handle their
customers. There are many, many more options out there today, and, I
for one am enjoying using a Mac with VoiceOver... no database solution
in the Mac that works well yet, but one day. NVDA works well, and the
price is right. I'm sorry for the rant, but I'm getting very
frustrated with FS attitude that they are the only game in town and
don't, therefore, need to respond to customer complaints.

End of rant.

Hope you all are well.

Russell

Re: Jaws 13 with XP

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Jim,

Running a screen saver will make Jaws act pretty weird, at least from what
I've noticed. I always set the screen saver option to none to avoid focus
issues. Go to control panel / Display / Screen Saver Tab, to make the
adjustment if you would like to give it a try, just to see if it helps. HTH
Take care.
Mike

Heya folks,

Am running windows XP Home and Jaws 13 seems to work fine , nice and smooth
and slick till either my screensaver comes on or my monitor comes back from
sleep mode and every thing slows down, tabbing around is delayed and lagging
and in the end I need to reboot.
My screen resolution is 1024by 768 as I've always had for years
Is there any fix for this or something I can disable in Jaws feature in 13
to still be able to run my screen saver and protect my monotor?

Any help will be appreciated.

Cheers,

Jim
