I haven't had any problems with the automatic update either, and I have used that ever since it became available.

Hi Adrian,

Did you use the Jaws automatic updater? If so, that is most likely the
problem. I sent another message to the list with the direct download links
& what's new in this latest release.
Take care.

When I rebooted an hour ago, I was notified of a new JAWS release. Against
my better judgment, I went ahead with the installation. As usual, I was
required to reboot on completion. After about five minutes, I decided
something was wrong because the rebooting process got hung. So I shut down
the PC and restarted. It took a while, but eventually the PC came back to
life and JAWS reloaded. Ultimately a good result, but the experience brought
back bad memories of earlier JAWS releases. In the future, I'll make sure to
have sighted assistance nearby when I install a new JAWS release, just in
case. I wonder if this process went more smoothly for others.

Keeping Up With Technology

Kevin Wollenweber <dancingweed@...>
 

You know, with all the hardships that I read within this EList, especially
regarding Netflix and other such sites-I know I'm having my share of woes
regarding these-I think the fault lay not only with sites like Netflix that
change configurations as often as they change their underwear, but also with
Freedom Scientific for not keeping the programs compatible and current with
a lot of new programs and changing graphics. If screenreaders were able to
recognize changing graphics, I think things would be a lot more accessible.
No one saw this Netflix change coming; I mean, the site is definitely
changed completely to the point where I cannot find my DVD queue; if they
were phasing out the DVD queue, news of this should have been announced to
subscribers long ago, but if this is merely a configuration issue where more
is made of graphics, well, then I guess that, right now, they'll lose a lot
of subscribers who can't figure out the situation, but my hope is that
screenreading software is keeping up with the times, because they're
certainly *NOT* slowing down for us.

Hi,

I've noticed lately that most reboots after installation take
significantly longer than I would expect (even taking into account
that reboot after install won't have the normal decreased boot time
associated with win8.1). Given how simply turning off a booting system
is one of the few remaining ways to mess up an operating system
install I would suggest waiting much longer than five minutes before
assuming that the reboot is hung. My jaws upgrade took close to that
today and I've had a few MS updates take more than 20 minutes after
reboot, but the point is that the system did eventually come around.

Re: Installation of today's new JAWS release

Michal Nowicki <mnowicki4@...>
 

Unlike earlier versions, Windows 8.1 installs security updates automatically
upon system shut down or restart when such updates are available. This may
explain why it sometimes takes longer for computers to reboot following a
JAWS update

To see if you have the latest update for JAWS 14, open the JAWS help menu
and select "check for updates." This works in all versions of JAWS that have
come out since the feature was introduced several years ago.

Jaws Latest J16.0.3048 Update Download Links

Michael B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,

Below are the download links for the latest update build, J16.0.3048, &
what's new in this build:

32 Bit:

http://files.freedomscientific.com/WebFiles/JAWS/J16.0.3048enu-x86.exe

64 Bit:

http://files.freedomscientific.com/WebFiles/JAWS/J16.0.3048enu-x64.exe


The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 16 May 2015
release and the June 2015 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page.

JAWS
.Addressed issues with JAWS unexpectedly exiting Forms Mode while editing or
navigating in HTML ARIA multiline edit fields.
.Text entered into the Search Box in the Windows 7 Start menu is now shown
in braille.
.Addressed reported issues with characters not being entered as expected
when typing rapidly using a braille display.
.Resolved issues with using speech in a JAWS Remote Desktop connection.
.Addressed reported Research It issues where links in the Weather lookup
source could sometimes not be activated and extraneous text was being
displayed with results in the Wikipedia lookup source. We are continuing to
work on resolving the MLB Scores issues.
.Addressed a reported issue where the Braille Viewer utility would not run
if JAWS was started using the /default command line switch, which is used
for troubleshooting. Braille Viewer allows a sighted person to see what is
on the user's braille display by displaying the JAWS braille output on the
screen.
.When the Allow Web Application Reserved Keystrokes option is enabled,
assigned punctuation characters are now passed to Facebook as expected. For
instance, pressing SHIFT+SLASH for a question mark will now open the
Keyboard Shortcut Help dialog on the Facebook web site.
.Addressed an issue reported by a customer using the Eloquence synthesizer
where the Keyboard voice was still set to English - United States even
though the profile was set to use English - United Kingdom for all contexts.
.JAWS now correctly announces the Windows 8.1 Start button as a button
instead of a list box.
.Resolved a customer reported issue with the Say Word command, INSERT+NUM
PAD 5, not working as expected in Windows Explorer.
.Resolved an issue with JAWS not working correctly in edit combo boxes when
the Windows language settings are configured for Hebrew.
.Updated the JAWS dictionary to improve the pronunciation of "live view."
Additionally, improved how Vocalizer Expressive pronounces different
combinations of characters, such as a letter followed by a number.

Adobe
.Worked with Adobe on solving issues with the OCR of PDF documents in the
new Acrobat Reader DC. Adobe will release an update to Acrobat Reader DC
soon that is working as expected with JAWS 16.
.An issue was reported where JAWS appeared to become unresponsive for
several seconds when attempting to select and copy text from a very large
document. This has been corrected and copying text from large documents
should now be instantaneous.

Google
.The ALT+UP ARROW keystroke now closes a combo box in Chrome without the
need to first use the Pass Key Through command (INSERT+3).
.Resolved an issue where the label for multiline edit fields was being shown
at the beginning of each line on the braille display in Google docs.

Microsoft Excel
.Addressed an issue where information was not being displayed correctly in
braille for spreadsheets containing hidden columns when the braille mode was
set to Current Row.

Microsoft Internet Explorer
.Pressing ENTER on submenu items on Outlook.com now activates the item.
.Resolved issues with JAWS not detecting changes in certain ARIA live
regions.
.If a page does not contain a main region, you are now told there is no main
region on the page when using Navigation Quick Key Q to move to the main
region.
.The error message that is heard when using Navigation Quick Key C on a page
that does not contain combo boxes, list views, or tree views, has been
updated to also mention ARIA controls. Navigation Quick Key C also moves to
ARIA role tabs.
.The Virtual HTML Features dialog box (INSERT+F3), which allows you to
select the type of HTML element list you want to view, now includes a
"Controls (Selectable ARIA, combo, lists, and trees) List" item.
.Addressed a customer reported issue with JAWS not correctly announcing the
notification bar when pressing ENTER on a download link. Information about
the Notification Bar is now also shown on the braille display as a flash
message.
.Resolved an issue where INSERT+UP ARROW to read the current line was not
reading the contents of an edit field in Forms Mode.

Microsoft Office
.Resolved an issue where attempting to change the keyboard language was not
working if a braille display was connected.

Microsoft Outlook
.Addressed an issue reported by the Veterans Administration with JAWS
becoming unresponsive and restarting while attempting to read certain
messages.
.When selecting a profile, a customer reported JAWS double speaking the
profile name. This has been fixed.
.When entering email recipients and you are connected to an Exchange server,
JAWS now automatically reads the information bar that is displayed if a
recipient is out of the office or they have configured an automatic reply.
This was requested by the CNIB in Canada.
.Addressed a reported issue with reading all-day appointments in Outlook
2013.
.Resolved an issue where the currently selected item in the message list was
not being spoken after closing a message or dialog box.
.Addressed an issue with braille not working as expected after moving a
message to another folder.
.Addressed a customer reported issue where the correct window title was not
being read after switching to another folder.

Microsoft Word
.Resolved an issue with reading certain text boxes navigated to using the
Inline Objects dialog box (CTRL+SHIFT+O).
.As requested by a customer, pressing CTRL+ALT+NUM PAD 5 in a table now only
reads the current cell if no column or row titles have been defined.
.JAWS now announces and shows in braille the current state of the
Hide/Browse button in the Save As dialog box.
.Addressed a situation reported by a customer where speech and braille were
lost when attempting to create a bulleted list in Word 2010.
.In Word 2010, resolved a reported issue where JAWS focus was not returning
to the document after selecting a word from the Synonyms menu.
.A customer reported that the commands to read the previous or next sentence
(ALT+UP ARROW and ALT+DOWN ARROW) were not working as expected when focused
on the first or last paragraph in a document. This is now fixed.
.After selecting an item from a combo box or toggling the state of a check
box in a form in Word 2013, addressed an issue where JAWS was repeating the
control info multiple times when focus returned to the document.

Mozilla Firefox
.Resolved an issue where the page title was not always being spoken
correctly on dynamic web pages.
.To help eliminate any possible confusion, long labels on radio buttons,
check boxes, and buttons that exceed the specified line length for the
Virtual Cursor will no longer wrap to multiple lines.
.Resolved an issue with Forms Mode not working as expected after using the
ALT+DOWN ARROW keystroke to open a combo box.
.JAWS now speaks the selected text when you attempt to select the contents
of a table cell in some web-based editors.
.When using the Select a Form Field dialog box (INSERT+F5) to move to a
specific form field, resolved an issue where JAWS was not automatically
reading the field prompt when focus moved to it.
.Improved JAWS performance with ARIA slider controls so the correct
left/right orientation is indicated.

Mozilla Thunderbird
.Improved JAWS performance when navigating large messages. In addition, JAWS
no longer reads the selected item twice after deleting a message.

Enhancements in JAWS 16.0.2342 (May 2015)

As a result of our automatic error reporting feature pointing out an issue,
we were able to post this intermediate update to improve stability.

Take care.

Re: Installation of today's new JAWS release

Daniel McBride
 

If this new release does not automatically appear on my desktop, where do I
go to get the download?

I did the update this morning without much difficulty... I have not noticed
much difference in Jaws but it updated easily.

Subject: Installation of today's new JAWS release

When I rebooted an hour ago, I was notified of a new JAWS release. Against
my better judgment, I went ahead with the installation. As usual, I was
required to reboot on completion. After about five minutes, I decided
something was wrong because the rebooting process got hung. So I shut down
the PC and restarted. It took a while, but eventually the PC came back to
life and JAWS reloaded. Ultimately a good result, but the experience brought
back bad memories of earlier JAWS releases. In the future, I'll make sure to
have sighted assistance nearby when I install a new JAWS release, just in
case. I wonder if this process went more smoothly for others.

installation of today's new release from JAWS

Daniel McBride
 

I am still using JAWS 14 on a PC, with Windows 7 and Microsoft
Office/Outlook 2010. Is today's release an update that I need to download?


Re: Installation of today's new JAWS release

Londa Peterson
 

In that case the best thing to do is to download the full installation package from the FS website and run it. This often works when the check for updates feature doesn't.

Hi Adrian, The patch install failed with a notice to run a repair on my
current JAWS 16, the most current build prior to today's notice.
This has not happened to me before so, for now, I will wait for further
developments. Mitch

With the latest upgrade, I had no problems what so ever. With the prior one I never could get it to work even after removing JFW 16 and reinstalling a fresh.
