Re: Is there any reason to not upgrade to JAWS 17?

Bobb Wiley <rwiley46@...>
 

If you are happy with v16, then look through the 'what's new with verssion
17' and if nothing there looks totally compelling, then sit back and let the
more intrepid members find the bugs.

Just my opinion,
Bob

Hi,

I'm happily running JAWS 16 on my Windows 7 64-bit laptop, and using Office
2010.

Is there any reason NOT to upgrade to JAWS 17?

Thanks, Keith

Solved my Issue with JAWS Shared Components.

Debbie April Yuille
 

Hi All

I've now solved my issue with JAWS losing it's shared components when
downgrading back to windows 7 from windows 10. It occurred to me that I
hadn't yet tried to install a copy of JAWS 16 rather than 17 to see if that
would give me eloquence back, and to my surprise, it worked.

Thanks
Debbie


Re: Windows Tablets

Ed Marquette <marquette.ed@...>
 

I would take special care before buying a tablet computer if you
are totally blind. Perhaps I should offer up a definition of a
tablet. By tablet, I'm referring to a computing device larger
than a phone that has a touch screen only, and no readily
available keyboard.
Computing devices that have auxiliary keyboards are excluded from
my definition. There is NO WAY someone, going by touch alone (and
no sight), can type as efficiently or as accurately on a touch
screen as one can on a device with a physical keyboard.
I know a little about touch screen devices. I've used an iPhone
for 6 years (from a 3s to a 6s), and although I love my phones, I
dictate. When I have to type something, it is a pain.
Similarly, I have an UltraBook (a Yoga IdeaPad), a device with
both a touch screen and a real keyboard, and I've had it for 4
years (since before JAWS had touch gestures).
I've used the touchscreen fewer than 3 times. Frustrated with
typing on the touch keyboard, I always revert to the Yoga's
built-in keyboard.
Perhaps it is just me, and I am exceptionally awkward, but I'm
just honestly sharing my experience.
So, if you are totally blind, when considering a tablet, make sure
to factor in the cost of a keyboard too.

From what I hear, the Surface Pro works very well. A few months
ago, I purchased a tablet size Asus model, with a laptop style
keyboard as part of the computer itself. I got it from Amazon for
around 170 bucks. Doesn't have a lot of hard drive space, but it
is pretty fast. I purchased a Micro SD card for initial storage
purposes for around 15 dollars. The computer is very light
weight, and easy to travel with. If you use something like this,
I would recommend a drop box account, so you can put your files
there, and grab them when you get back home for your big computer.

One thing to keep in mind when searching for a Tablet. Make sure
it is running a full version of Windows, and not Windows RT. The
RT systems won't run JAWS. Good luck!

Subject: Windows Tablets

Hello, everyone.



I have a question that I hope will not be considered off topic for
this list.



I would like to purchase some sort of a Windows tablet to use when
traveling, and for when I don't want to drag my laptop computer
around.



I am currently using Jaws 16, but plan to upgrade to Jaws 17 at
some point, probably in the next few months.



I assume that any windows-based tablet that I might get now will
automatically come with Windows 10 installed, which I'm ok with,
since I'll eventually need to upgrade my other computers to that
operating system at some point.



Can anyone give me recommendations and approximate costs of
windows tablets that would have sufficient resources to
accommodate Jaws, and basic Microsoft software such as Microsoft
Office, Outlook e-mail, etc.?



At one point, I had considered moving to an IPad, but I am quite
comfortable with the Jaws to windows interface, so would prefer to
stick with a Windows tablet if at all possible.



Thank you!

Re: Problem typing URL in Crome?

When using the ALT-D method the URL doesn't have to be cleared. You can type
right over it because it is highlighted. Either way works though.

Help: JAWS will not install shared components after Downgrading back to Windows 7 from Win10

Debbie April Yuille
 

Hi

Last night I upgraded my Dell laptop to windows 10 and du to the fact it
caused problems with my sound, decided to go back to windows 7. That went
smoothly enough, except for one problem. My jaws no longer has any speech. I
keep getting a message that some of my shared components are missing.

I've tried to re-install my jaws but with no luck. I've even tried removing
everything from my program data folders and also removing registry keys and
then re-installing and still I have the same issue. Any help on this is
really appreciated.

Thanks
Debbie

I cannot speak to that, as I haven't attempted to disable it. I use the
Logitech k810 Bluetooth keyboard and the keyboard cover that was an optional

to finally get it to happen.

The Surface Pro has one USB port. No DVD drive, and I suspect most, if not
all the tablets won't have a DVD drive.

I have a Surface Pro and I'm very pleased with it. The prices have come
down since I purchased mine last year. You can find less expensive tablets,
but I believe at least for me, the additional cost is worth it. I initially
purchased a Dell tablet and had to return it. It was under $500 but didn't
function properly. I'm running Jaws 17 with Office 2013 and Windows 10 and
the only program that crashes on occasion is Internet Exploder, and that
will happen irregardless of what you buy or what operating system you run.

From what I hear, the Surface Pro works very well. A few months ago, I
purchased a tablett size Asus model, with a laptop style keyboard as part of
the computer itself. I got it from Amazon for around 170 bucks. Doesn't
have a lot of hard drive space, but it is pretty fast. I purchased a Micro
SD card for initial storage purposes for around 15 dollars. The computer is
very light weight, and easy to travel with. If you use something like this,
I would recommend a drop box account, so you can put your files there, and
grab them when you get back home for your big computer.
One thing to keep in mind when searching for a Tablett. Make sure it is
running a full version of Windows, and not Windows RT. The RT systems won't
run JAWS. Good luck!

Subject: Windows Tablets

Hello, everyone.



I have a question that I hope will not be considered off topic for this
list.



I would like to purchase some sort of a Windows tablet to use when
traveling, and for when I don't want to drag my laptop computer around.



I am currently using Jaws 16, but plan to upgrade to Jaws 17 at some point,
probably in the next few months.



I assume that any windows-based tablet that I might get now will
automatically come with Windows 10 installed, which I'm ok with, since I'll
eventually need to upgrade my other computers to that operating system at
some point.



Can anyone give me recommendations and approximate costs of windows tablets
that would have sufficient resources to accommodate Jaws, and basic
Microsoft software such as Microsoft Office, Outlook e-mail, etc.?



At one point, I had considered moving to an IPad, but I am quite comfortable
with the Jaws to windows interface, so would prefer to stick with a Windows
tablet if at all possible.



Thank you!



Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan

Re: Windows Tablets

Les Kriegler <kriegler@...>
 

I cannot speak to that, as I haven't attempted to disable it. I use the
Logitech k810 Bluetooth keyboard and the keyboard cover that was an optional
purchase with the Surface Pro. My hands rarely come in contact with the
touchpad, so I haven't had a need to try to disable this. If you call
Microsoft Accessibility at (800)936-5900, they should be able to ad vise you
on this matter.

I have a Dell laptop at work, and turning off the touch keypad was extremely

Hi all.
Here is a drop box link to a folder with 24 tutorials concerning how to
install win 10 and everything you need to know how to use it and customize
it. You will learn about everything there is to know about win 10. Here is
the link and you do not need drop box to download this folder. Take care and
let me know how this works for you. Here is the link below.

Hello,

The best way is to search the web for Windows 10 and the word "guide" or
other words like "basic", "easy" or "beginner".

The web is your best bet and learn to use it. There is a lot of information
out there.
