Re: Installation of Windows 10

Jim Portillo
 

Well, having learned some stuff from installing Windows 10 on my tablet, I decided to try updating my Windows 8 laptop. This time, it worked well. I turned Narrator on a little before I needed to do so. I even used TapTapSee on my iPhone when I was worrying about it being a little too quiet. I'd never done that before.

Anyway, it looks like it installed fine! I'm going to have to change defaults and such, but the system itself installed, and JAWS is talking to me.
Very cool!

Jim

Hi,
You'll first want to upgrade to Windows 10, as then you'll be able to clean
install. Various sources tell me that a new activation mechanisms are used -
your computer hardware information will be used to generate a secure hash
which will then be sent to Microsoft and will be kept for you, and once
cleanly installed, Windows 10 will be activated without having to enter a
product key.
Cheers,
Joseph

I have a question about Win10 install. I have Win7 and can free upgrade.
Did someone say a Win10 could be installed without using Win7 or 8? I would
like to completely wipe out my hard drive then run a destroyer program to
assure the only thing on the disc is binary zeros. Then a clean Win7 can be
installed and a downloaded J16, new Outlook ect. Too many files on my hard
drive are corrupt. Outlook will run but freezes and crashes and is
sometimes extremely slow. Just want the best out of my machine.

Clarity would be greatly appreciated.

I wanted to point out something regarding Narrator. I have tried using the
Windows key plus Enter command to launch it on both my Windows 7 and 8.1
computers. It does not launch it on my Windows 7 machine, but it does on my
Windows 8.1 machine. I'm bringing this up for the benefit of those who are
upgrading from Windows 8.1 to version 10. Windows key plus enter may be an
option for you. I don't mean to confuse the issue at all, but did want to
share my experience here.

Subject: RE: Installation of Windows 10

Hi,
There is no command to restart Narrator.
Speaking of installing Windows, I'll go through some FAQ's I got from this
list in this email:
* Compatible JFW release: Please use JAWS 16.0.4350 or later, or if you'd
like to wait, please hold off until JAWS 17 comes out (public beta or
official build will do).
* Clean install versus in-place upgrade: You can perform an in-place upgrade
all by yourself with a screen reader running. Your computer will restart
several times, and after some restarts, you'll hear silence from your
computer. Once this happens, press Windows+ENTER to launch Narrator, and if
your sound card is detected, Microsoft David will come up talking.
* Multiple clean install options: There are two ways of performing clean
install: bootable media or from Media Creation Tool. If using Media Creation
tool option, the steps are same as above, except none of your programs and
settings will be kept. If doing bootable media installation, then you'll
indeed need some sighted assistance for the first few prompts to choose your
language, entering your product key (don't have to enter it), choosing a
partition and others. Once your computer restarts several times, follow the
steps above to finish installing using Narrator (Windows 10 will come in
either a DVD or on a flash drive).
* Some finds with JAWS 16.0.4350: My brief testing shows the following (at
least on my computer):
1. In Start search box, JAWS does not announce search results automatically.
2. JAWS does not announce Action Center notifications, aa variation of
Windows 8.x's toast notifications. They are toasts in disguise because you
can press Windows+V to move to and interact with them, and press Windows+A
to open Action Center. These are basic issues that should have been fixed in
the first place, thus (in my opinion) disqualifying JAWS from being
compatible with Windows 10 for now (I'm sure FS is working on it).
3. You can use TAB and Shift+TAB to move among links in Microsoft Edge (no
virtual cursor, no forms mode, no support for MathML yet). There were tweets
floating around which criticized FS for not supporting Edge yet, but that's
expected (the biggest nightmare for screen reader vendors is whenever
Microsoft comes out with a new version of Windows; Windows 8.x users tasted
this, and it'll happen more frequently now that Microsoft will be updating
Windows constantly to add new features which may break accessibility).
For resident geeks here:
* In order to let your app support Windows 10, you need to modify app
manifest in your application, which is what JAWS 16.0.4350 could have done.
* UIA (User Interface Automation) is more prominent now, with universal apps
using UIA.
* Microsoft Edge is filled with UIA objects, thus you need to know how UIA
works (at least a high-level overview) when scripting for Windows 10 apps
and for supporting Edge.
If you'd like to hear Windows 10 in action, there are podcasts devoted to
this (including mine). I talked about Windows 10 (although from another
screen reader's perspective) on Tek Talk for August 3rd, which can be found
at www.accessibleworld.org.
Cheers,
Joseph
P.S. I believe we have some Windows Insiders who uses JAWS, so you can ask
them also.

Hi,
I just want to remind you that Narrator on Windows 10 is started and
stopped by pressing windows key and enter.
after starting the upgrade, I believe the PC restarted twice, after
that I waited about 20 minutes and pressed windows+Enter and Narrator
helped me finish the setup.
At one point, Narrator would not read the screen, so I quit and
restarted it with windows+Enter.

Re: Installation of Windows 10

Michal Nowicki <mnowicki4@...>
 

Prior to Windows 8, a clean install of Windows was always better, but that
no longer seems to be the case. It seems as though Microsoft now
deliberately designs new versions of Windows to facilitate installation over
existing copies of Windows so that users don't have to reinstall their files
and apps. At least for me, both upgrading from Windows 8 to 8.1 and now
from 8.1 to 10 both went smoothly. That said, I would personally recommend
a clean install of Windows only if you have a lot of junk on your computer
that you wish to get rid of, or if you have corrupt files or apps that
negatively impact overall system performance.

I did it all by myself.
I upgraded from windows 7 home premium, running Jaws 16. Thanks to the people on the list as I had to do a repair on jaws.
I tried using narrator and that helped a little. But, I’m use to jaws, thus found it frustrating.

In short you can do it by yourself.

Also, having read the news release from FS, may I infer that one should cleanly and completely uninstall earlier versions of JAWS?

Mark and Joe,

How did you know when to start Narrator? Did you launch it before starting the update?

I did it all by myself.
I upgraded from windows 7 home premium, running Jaws 16. Thanks to the people on the list as I had to do a repair on jaws.
I tried using narrator and that helped a little. But, I’m use to jaws, thus found it frustrating.

In short you can do it by yourself.

Hi,

I know there's been much discussion of various aspects related to this topic. However, I'd like to know if anyone here has successfully installed or upgraded to Windows 10 independently.
Did you use JAWS 16 or Narrator or both? I'm ready to install this but don't know that I'll have a sighted person around to help, so want to make sure I can do this with one or two screen readers.
Any tips will be helpful.
I've got my machine set and ready to go.

Does anyone have outlook 2013, if so, when you open up an email and read it
or if it reads automatically for you, do you find that jaws reads it twice
as to say, pay attention! I'm only going to read it one more time to you!

It didn't do that in 2010, only here in 2013. Honestly, when it does that,
my brain gets confused lol.

FYI, using windows 10 pro and jaws 4350

there are some youtube tutorials done by someone that sounds like writer bren (I'm not sure of the spelling) on how to set it up, etc. She did make 1 and 3 others not related to setting it up. I don't know if she made more.

if you're looking for something free, there's sound volume view by the same makers, but haven't used it or don't know of any tutorials.

Something to keep in mind when installing

Jim Portillo
 

I learned something when installing Windows 10. First of all, I'm now using
it on my tablet; although, I have some learning to do. I will need help!

When running the utility that Freedom Scientific has for removing older
versions of JAWS and preparing the computer for Windows 10, make sure and
check that your JAWS settings are how you want them. What I found out was
that my setting to start JAWS at the log-in screen had been unchecked, so
when the computer was restarting and such, JAWS was not coming on at all.
I still don't know why Narrator wasn't coming on though, and I did have to
get someone sighted to read the screen to me. Everything installed well
though, I think.

So, check your JAWS settings once you've used that utility.

Jim

You'll first want to upgrade to Windows 10, as then you'll be able to clean

your computer hardware information will be used to generate a secure hash

Subject: RE: Installation of Windows 10

Hi,
There is no command to restart Narrator.
Speaking of installing Windows, I'll go through some FAQ's I got from this
list in this email:
* Compatible JFW release: Please use JAWS 16.0.4350 or later, or if you'd
like to wait, please hold off until JAWS 17 comes out (public beta or
official build will do).
* Clean install versus in-place upgrade: You can perform an in-place upgrade
all by yourself with a screen reader running. Your computer will restart
several times, and after some restarts, you'll hear silence from your
computer. Once this happens, press Windows+ENTER to launch Narrator, and if
your sound card is detected, Microsoft David will come up talking.
* Multiple clean install options: There are two ways of performing clean
install: bootable media or from Media Creation Tool. If using Media Creation
tool option, the steps are same as above, except none of your programs and
settings will be kept. If doing bootable media installation, then you'll
indeed need some sighted assistance for the first few prompts to choose your
language, entering your product key (don't have to enter it), choosing a
partition and others. Once your computer restarts several times, follow the
steps above to finish installing using Narrator (Windows 10 will come in
either a DVD or on a flash drive).
* Some finds with JAWS 16.0.4350: My brief testing shows the following (at
least on my computer):
1. In Start search box, JAWS does not announce search results automatically.
2. JAWS does not announce Action Center notifications, aa variation of
Windows 8.x's toast notifications. They are toasts in disguise because you
can press Windows+V to move to and interact with them, and press Windows+A
to open Action Center. These are basic issues that should have been fixed in
the first place, thus (in my opinion) disqualifying JAWS from being
compatible with Windows 10 for now (I'm sure FS is working on it).
3. You can use TAB and Shift+TAB to move among links in Microsoft Edge (no
virtual cursor, no forms mode, no support for MathML yet). There were tweets
floating around which criticized FS for not supporting Edge yet, but that's
expected (the biggest nightmare for screen reader vendors is whenever
Microsoft comes out with a new version of Windows; Windows 8.x users tasted
this, and it'll happen more frequently now that Microsoft will be updating
Windows constantly to add new features which may break accessibility).
For resident geeks here:
* In order to let your app support Windows 10, you need to modify app
manifest in your application, which is what JAWS 16.0.4350 could have done.
* UIA (User Interface Automation) is more prominent now, with universal apps
using UIA.
* Microsoft Edge is filled with UIA objects, thus you need to know how UIA
works (at least a high-level overview) when scripting for Windows 10 apps
and for supporting Edge.
If you'd like to hear Windows 10 in action, there are podcasts devoted to
this (including mine). I talked about Windows 10 (although from another
screen reader's perspective) on Tek Talk for August 3rd, which can be found
at www.accessibleworld.org.
Cheers,
Joseph
P.S. I believe we have some Windows Insiders who uses JAWS, so you can ask
them also.

I just want to remind you that Narrator on Windows 10 is started and
stopped by pressing windows key and enter.
after starting the upgrade, I believe the PC restarted twice, after
that I waited about 20 minutes and pressed windows+Enter and Narrator
helped me finish the setup.
At one point, Narrator would not read the screen, so I quit and
restarted it with windows+Enter.
dont forget to make a backup before upgrading.

can press Windows+V to move to and interact with them, and press Windows+A
to open Action Center. These are basic issues that should have been fixed in
the first place, thus (in my opinion) disqualifying JAWS from being
compatible with Windows 10 for now (I'm sure FS is working on it).
3. You can use TAB and Shift+TAB to move among links in Microsoft Edge (no
virtual cursor, no forms mode, no support for MathML yet). There were tweets
floating around which criticized FS for not supporting Edge yet, but that's
expected (the biggest nightmare for screen reader vendors is whenever
Microsoft comes out with a new version of Windows; Windows 8.x users tasted
this, and it'll happen more frequently now that Microsoft will be updating
Windows constantly to add new features which may break accessibility).
For resident geeks here:
* In order to let your app support Windows 10, you need to modify app
manifest in your application, which is what JAWS 16.0.4350 could have done.
* UIA (User Interface Automation) is more prominent now, with universal apps
using UIA.
* Microsoft Edge is filled with UIA objects, thus you need to know how UIA
works (at least a high-level overview) when scripting for Windows 10 apps
and for supporting Edge.
If you'd like to hear Windows 10 in action, there are podcasts devoted to
this (including mine). I talked about Windows 10 (although from another
screen reader's perspective) on Tek Talk for August 3rd, which can be found
at www.accessibleworld.org.
Cheers,
Joseph
P.S. I believe we have some Windows Insiders who uses JAWS, so you can ask
them also.

Hi,
I just want to remind you that Narrator on Windows 10 is started and
stopped by pressing windows key and enter.
after starting the upgrade, I believe the PC restarted twice, after
that I waited about 20 minutes and pressed windows+Enter and Narrator
helped me finish the setup.
At one point, Narrator would not read the screen, so I quit and
restarted it with windows+Enter.
dont forget to make a backup before upgrading.

Kenny Peyattt jr.
 

Hi I already upgraded to windows 10, thats is why I was wondering how you go about retrieving the product key just in case I need to do a clean install.

Hi,
There are programs that'll do this, one of them is Magical Jellybean. On my
systems, I used Belarc Advisor.
Cheers,

Re: Installation of Windows 10

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Good to know it comes in something besides a raw download; a flash drive sounds like just the thing for a program that size. If I decide to get it, it would be the first time I've ever had a Windows disc, as previous versions have always been OEM.

Subject: RE: Installation of Windows 10

Hi,
There is no command to restart Narrator.
Speaking of installing Windows, I'll go through some FAQ's I got from this list in this email:
* Compatible JFW release: Please use JAWS 16.0.4350 or later, or if you'd like to wait, please hold off until JAWS 17 comes out (public beta or official build will do).
* Clean install versus in-place upgrade: You can perform an in-place upgrade all by yourself with a screen reader running. Your computer will restart several times, and after some restarts, you'll hear silence from your computer. Once this happens, press Windows+ENTER to launch Narrator, and if your sound card is detected, Microsoft David will come up talking.
* Multiple clean install options: There are two ways of performing clean
install: bootable media or from Media Creation Tool. If using Media Creation tool option, the steps are same as above, except none of your programs and settings will be kept. If doing bootable media installation, then you'll indeed need some sighted assistance for the first few prompts to choose your language, entering your product key (don't have to enter it), choosing a partition and others. Once your computer restarts several times, follow the steps above to finish installing using Narrator (Windows 10 will come in either a DVD or on a flash drive).
* Some finds with JAWS 16.0.4350: My brief testing shows the following (at least on my computer):
1. In Start search box, JAWS does not announce search results automatically.
2. JAWS does not announce Action Center notifications, aa variation of Windows 8.x's toast notifications. They are toasts in disguise because you can press Windows+V to move to and interact with them, and press Windows+A to open Action Center. These are basic issues that should have been fixed in the first place, thus (in my opinion) disqualifying JAWS from being compatible with Windows 10 for now (I'm sure FS is working on it).
3. You can use TAB and Shift+TAB to move among links in Microsoft Edge (no virtual cursor, no forms mode, no support for MathML yet). There were tweets floating around which criticized FS for not supporting Edge yet, but that's expected (the biggest nightmare for screen reader vendors is whenever Microsoft comes out with a new version of Windows; Windows 8.x users tasted this, and it'll happen more frequently now that Microsoft will be updating Windows constantly to add new features which may break accessibility).
For resident geeks here:

* UIA (User Interface Automation) is more prominent now, with universal apps using UIA.
* Microsoft Edge is filled with UIA objects, thus you need to know how UIA works (at least a high-level overview) when scripting for Windows 10 apps and for supporting Edge.

Re: outlook 2013 email reading curiosity

Kevin Hourigan <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Hello Kimsan,
I have Windows 7, 64 bit, the latest Jaws, and Office 365, and have not
experienced that in Outlook 2013, but am experiencing it in Word
occasionally, which makes proof reading problematic.
Cheers Kevin.

Does anyone have outlook 2013, if so, when you open up an email and read it
or if it reads automatically for you, do you find that jaws reads it twice
as to say, pay attention! I'm only going to read it one more time to you!

It didn't do that in 2010, only here in 2013. Honestly, when it does that,
my brain gets confused lol.

FYI, using windows 10 pro and jaws 4350
