Peter, as a user I completely agree, but from a marketing point of view
they've got to be seen to be adding new stuff haven't they?

Bhavesh, we can discuss jaws 13 features all we like, but the public beta
will be coming out in the next month or so. Therefore this conversation is
redundant, as fs have already decided what new features in jaws 13 will be.

in this issue, i think even though it is late, we can discuss jaws13
features, which FS should add.
according to me, one feature that jaws13 should have is that it should
allow us to select the list of textual errors in a list view, and then
select which one to edit. this becomes easier to edit our preffered
text.

Re: upgrading jaws from 7 to 12

David Ingram
 

be prepared to spend $750 in order to not only update jaws to version 12, but also include in that the sma. I hope that this helps. If you plan to use windows 7, i'm not sure if the cost is more or may you may already have the pro version of jaws. I'll check on that part of things on Monday when i talk to someone at Freedom Scientific, They will be able to tell me if this is true or not.

Re: [Bulk] upgrading jaws from 7 to 12

Adrian Spratt
 

Gerald,

On your second point, no, I've been using the same authorization code for
several versions and SMAs.

On your first point, I hesitate to guess twice on the list in one day, but
you seem to be assuming someone would be contacting FS for the first time. I
don't recall if the website is set up for initial sales, but I imagine most
first-time purchasers would contact FS by phone or their local distributor.

how long does it take for them to send it? The FS web site doesn't make

Hi,
I have JAWS 11, latest build, on both my W7 and XP laptops. 11 works fine on
both operating systems and, yes, I am entitled to use 12 but, no thanks as
yet.
I can't wait to see what 13 will do. If it is no better than 12 then I
honestly think I am done with FS.

Hello, everyone.

In a recent post, I believe Adrian said the following:

"Many listers have reported flaws in JAWS 12,
possibly because it is more directed to Windows 7 than XP. ... I still
use
XP Pro,
and the warnings on this list have convinced me to stay with JAWS 11, even
though my SMA entitles me to JAWS 12."

The timing for this comment couldn't have been better in my case.

Although this is likely to change soon as my University switches us all
completely over to Windows 7, my desktop at work is still an XP machine,
and
still has Jaws 11. The back-up PC I have at home is an XP machine, and
that
too has Jaws 11.

So, is the collective wisdom of the group to keep things as they are now
on
the XP machines, rather than installing Jaws 12 which seems to be geared
more to Windows 7?

If this is true, you guys have just saved me some head-aches with my
remaining XP computers, and I thank you sincerely for that.

I'll save my headaches for installing Jaws 12 on the new Windows 7 laptop
the University will give me this week. (smile)

Hi again, and very thanks for your solution.

Now I can see the icon for my wireless network in the system tray. But when
I unfortunately take a look on the properties, I only can see that the
signal strength is excellent, not how many strokes you have.

Next to the icon for the wireless network, sighted people can see how many
strokes (1 to 5) the wireless network's signal strength is. Normaly
producers of wireless network's refer to this strokes for information about
the signal strength.

It is posible for JAWS-users to see the strokes?

Very thanks.

Hello there;

Not sure if this will work, but it's worth a try;

Putting icons back into the SystemTray.

Here are some steps I wrote quite a while ago, regarding this topic to
another list.

try these steps to get your network icon back into the system tray.

1, start menu;

2, setting/control panel;

3, t= taskbar and start menu, press enter.
If your using Xp, you just need to tab until you hear,
hide inactive icons, the box should be unchecked, so press spacebar to check

this box.
you will now see customize dialog button. The next 3 steps are for vista
users.
4, shift tab one time, you should hear,
taskbar tab.
5, right arrow until you hear;
Notification area tab.
6, tab one time you should hear;
Hide inactive icons this is unchecked, press spacebar to check.
7, tab enter on,
Icons customize....
8, now, down arrow until you hear,
Network connection,
right arrow, a combo box will open,
down arrow to show.
9, now tab, and enter on okay.

this should get your icon back into the system tray.

Full price! You mean FS doesn't even give you a break if you are already
a loyal JAWS user? So somebody who is using an older version of JAWS
like
JAWS 7 or 8 would pay the same $1000 for JAWS 12 as somebody who has
never
used JAWS before? This just doesn't seem fair.

Check with FS in the morning, but I suspect your friend would be asked
to
pay full price. I suggest waiting for the release of JAWS 13, which I
believe is anticipated in November. This way if your friend bought an
SMA
at
the same time, s/he would be eligible to upgrade to JAWS 14 without
additional charge. In addition, many listers have reported flaws in JAWS
12,
possibly because it is more directed to Windows 7 than XP. I'm assuming
someone using JAWS 7 hasn't yet switched to Windows 7. I still use XP
Pro,
and the warnings on this list have convinced me to stay with JAWS 11,
even
though my SMA entitles me to JAWS 12.

Re: Accessible software with JAWS there can read information about wireless network

Anders Boholdt-Petersen
 

Hi again, and very thanks for your solution.

Now I can see the icon for my wireless network in the system tray. But when I unfortunately take a look on the properties, I only can see that the signal strength is excellent, not how many strokes you have.

Next to the icon for the wireless network, sighted people can see how many strokes (1 to 5) the wireless network's signal strength is. Normaly producers of wireless network's refer to this strokes for information about the signal strength.

It is posible for JAWS-users to see the strokes?

Very thanks.

Regards,
Anders

Hello there;

Not sure if this will work, but it's worth a try;

Putting icons back into the SystemTray.

Here are some steps I wrote quite a while ago, regarding this topic to
another list.

try these steps to get your network icon back into the system tray.

1, start menu;

2, setting/control panel;

3, t= taskbar and start menu, press enter.
If your using Xp, you just need to tab until you hear,
hide inactive icons, the box should be unchecked, so press spacebar to check

this box.
you will now see customize dialog button. The next 3 steps are for vista
users.
4, shift tab one time, you should hear,
taskbar tab.
5, right arrow until you hear;
Notification area tab.
6, tab one time you should hear;
Hide inactive icons this is unchecked, press spacebar to check.
7, tab enter on,
Icons customize....
8, now, down arrow until you hear,
Network connection,
right arrow, a combo box will open,
down arrow to show.
9, now tab, and enter on okay.

this should get your icon back into the system tray.

I believe I got this method to work previously but only after
upgrading from Kindle for PC version 1.01b to at least 1.3. I also
had to upgrade the sconvert program and possibly point scripts at the
correct location for Kindle.info.

After about 8 hours of experimentation, I got the Kindle book
converted to HTML and began happily reading with JAWS.

Then I discovered that Bookshare had the same book available without
any of the fuss. Best $50 I ever spent!

This was a few months ago so I can't remember all the details. If
there is sufficient interest, I'll write something up.

By the way, nothing scientific, but I did ask a few sighted people, and
they generally preferred the response first as well. My cousin said that
if he asked a number of questions in an email, he'd like the answers

The timing for this comment couldn't have been better in my case.

Although this is likely to change soon as my University switches
us all completely over to Windows 7, my desktop at work is still
an XP machine, and still has Jaws 11. The back-up PC I have at
home is an XP machine, and that too has Jaws 11.

So, is the collective wisdom of the group to keep things as they
are now on the XP machines, rather than installing Jaws 12 which
seems to be geared more to Windows 7?

If this is true, you guys have just saved me some head-aches with
my remaining XP computers, and I thank you sincerely for that.

Okay, here's a dumb question. If you upgrade your SMA online, will FS send
you an installation CD for the version of JAWS you are upgrading to? If so,
how long does it take for them to send it? The FS web site doesn't make
this clear.

Gerald went to the FS website and corrected what I was careful to say was
a
guess. If you count the cost of SMAs for those of us who stayed current
from
JAWS 7 to 12, FS's $400 price tag for JAWS 12 from 7 looks cheap.

Full price! You mean FS doesn't even give you a break if you are already
a loyal JAWS user? So somebody who is using an older version of JAWS
like
JAWS 7 or 8 would pay the same $1000 for JAWS 12 as somebody who has
never
used JAWS before? This just doesn't seem fair.

Check with FS in the morning, but I suspect your friend would be asked
to
pay full price. I suggest waiting for the release of JAWS 13, which I
believe is anticipated in November. This way if your friend bought an
SMA
at
the same time, s/he would be eligible to upgrade to JAWS 14 without
additional charge. In addition, many listers have reported flaws in JAWS
12,
possibly because it is more directed to Windows 7 than XP. I'm assuming
someone using JAWS 7 hasn't yet switched to Windows 7. I still use XP
Pro,
and the warnings on this list have convinced me to stay with JAWS 11,
even
though my SMA entitles me to JAWS 12.

JAWS 13 is very likely set to release in November. It's been their pattern
for the past few years.

Hi
There are things that can no longer be done with Jaws 10, which I am still
happy with in general. So even though it appears that Jaws 12 still has
problems, we are moving on to Jaws 13?

Then that's not only fair, it's non-discriminatory.
