Using JAWS with SAP

Steele, Jo-Anne <JSteele@...>
 

Hi everyone!

With so many users on this list, I have high hopes that someone somewhere has had experience using JAWS with SAP. I am currently using ZoomText and SAP crashes with it immediately and everything stops working. Our IT guru thinks maybe JAWS or Magic might be a better solution. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Here is what the SAP website says SAP is:
"SAP software represents the terms "Systems Applications and Products in Data Processing." It is related to ERP, which is "Enterprise Resource Planning." SAP is also the name of the company. The firm is widely recognized as the global leader in enterprise applications in the form of software and services related to software. In terms of market capitalization, SAP would be the third-largest independent software maker in the world."

Thanks for your help.

Cheers,
j

Re: learning windows 8

Adrian Spratt
 

I'd avoid buying a new operating system while it's still very new, especially considering the time it takes FS, or any other software maker, to catch up. I have no regrets that I bought Win7 for my current system even though Win8 was available.

Re: Jaws won't start automatically in windows 8.1

Hi Ann,

I had a client who had this very problem. His was Windows 7, but I'm not
sure that actually makes a difference. He called FS tech support, and they
were able to tandem into his computer and fix it for him. As I never quite
understood his explanation of the problem, so I'd just recommend that you
call tech support and let them fix this for you. He also had all the
start-up settings set correctly.

Does this occur without jaws running? Try using NVDA to troubleshoot.

Someone on this list earlier asked me what version of Java I was running. The version of Java I have at work is 7.

Jaws is still running, but everything is super slow, and I can't alt tab or close a program or anything. I sometimes manage to accidentally close Adobe by continuously pressing alt tab then alt F4 until somehow I manage to close Adobe, and as soon as Adobe closes, everything works fine again.

If anyone has any suggestions I would sure appreciate it. Should I uninstall Java?

Hi everyone,

At work I run Jaws 16, latest update and Windows 7. I use Adobe XI Pro as well as Adobe Reader XI. A couple of weeks ago I began having problems whenever I open a PDF document in either Adobe or Adobe Reader. What happens is if I Alt tab away from the PDF document I am reading, everything locks up. If I try to alt tab back to the document nothing happens. Jaws will still speak but not enough to do anything. Sometime, if I press Alt F4 a few times, I will be able to get control of my system back. The trick seems to be closing the PDF document, but this isn’t easy to do as Jaws gives me no feedback as to where I am. I tried pressing CTRL + Alt + Delete and then Alt T to open the Task manager. It takes quite a while, but it will finally open, but I cannot move around to find the PDF document and end the task. Jaws will read the first item in the task manager, but as soon as I press the down arrow everything freezes up again. This is very frustrating as I work with a lot of PDF files and need to alt tab back and forth between the PDF and our database. The strange thing is if I press Shift F10 to bring up the Windows list, and switch between programs this way, it works fine. It seems that the alt tab keystroke, for some reason, causes my system to crash.

Has anyone else experienced anything remotely similar to this? If so, is there a fix?

I called FS Tech support and, at first was told that there were issues with Adobe XI, but then the person I was talking to seemed to change her mind and tried everything she could to prove that it wasn’t a Jaws issue. I am not at all impressed with FS tech support. If there is an issue with Jaws and Adobe XI I’d like to know!

Anyway, any ideas will be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Russell

Re: Jaws won't start automatically in windows 8.1

Bissett, Tom <tom.bissett@...>
 

I have a dell with windows 8.1, I find it interesting that when I start my computer from a shutdown the jaws does not speak at the logon screen but if I do a signout it speaks at the logon and when I do a restart it will speak at the logon screen. I have not figured out why it has this behavior. Not a show stopper but a annoyance.

I'm wondering if there is something with the group policy set-up on your computer that is blocking JAWS from starting up properly. You may want to contact Microsoft Accessibility and explaint o them your situation. I've seen this before on network computers, but never on a home computer.

Re: Jaws won't start automatically in windows 8.1

Tom Lange
 

Hi Ann,
You may already know this, but I'll mention this for the benefit of others on the list. In older versions of Windows, it was sufficient to check the item for "start JAWS at the logon screen" and so on. In later versions, including Windows 7, Windows 8 and 8.1, you can also elect to start JAWS automatically after login for all users, so that would cover all profiles that you use. I can't give you the rundown of what the dialog looks like because I'm in front of my XP box at the moment. So, go back into basic settings, go into the dialog pertaining to automatic startup, and check the items that apply to you and I'm sure you'll be able to resolve this. In addition to my own personal Windows 7 laptop, I run a computer lab with twenty-odd machines with both JAWS 15 and 16, and they all come up talking at the login and come up talking after login, too. Hope this helps. If not, write me privately off-list and we'll see what we can do go get things straightened out.

Best regards,
Tom

learning windows 8

Kristoffer Gustafsson
 

Hi.
I want to learn windows 8.
Is there any podcasts or anything like that?
I don't want to upgrade fron windows 7 at all as I fel right now, but
sooner or later I'l have to switch to windows 8.
So I want to know what it looks like. Perhaps I'll change my mind after that.
/Kristoffer

Re: Jaws won't start automatically in windows 8.1

Sounds like a setting is set incorrectly.

I know about the Automatically start Jaws settings in the Basics dialog,
and have checked them countless times. They are set correctly.

It's not a problem to run it manually, but it is more of a very very
annoying inconvenience. I also notice that neither the latest versions
of NVDA nor Window-Eyes has this problem, and both auto start just fine.

So Does anyone have any suggestions? Could the Windows 8.1 UAC be
interfering somehow?

Thanks.

accidentally muting

Lovette Yewchan <lyewchan@...>
 

I have a lenovol lap top that sometimes I accidentally mute. Does anyone know how to make this not possible with JAWS or if there is a shortcut that can be made to bring the voice back if I should accidentally hit this on the track pad?

Thanks.

Lovette

Re: the best laptop

They frequently have the service tag listed on the inside of the case.
Alternatly, use F1 at start up to view the service tag, and other items.
With this info you can go to the site and get your drivers.

I think it's all relative. I had nothing but Toshiba laptops, with num pads
and application key.
I've had very good luck with them. Also I use an external keyboard most of
the time.

Jaws won't start automatically in windows 8.1

I am running Jfw15 with Windows 8.1. Jaws runs fine at the log on and lock screens, but will not start automatically for either of my accounts, not my admin or my standard account.

I know about the Automatically start Jaws settings in the Basics dialog, and have checked them countless times. They are set correctly.

It's not a problem to run it manually, but it is more of a very very annoying inconvenience. I also notice that neither the latest versions of NVDA nor Window-Eyes has this problem, and both auto start just fine.

So Does anyone have any suggestions? Could the Windows 8.1 UAC be interfering somehow?
