I do not think a software program can lie only that it's programmer made an
error. Only human lie.

It looks as if this might be a focus problem with JAWS. The only thing I
have experienced is that JAWS will read the title of a email message even
after I had deleted it. Secondly JAWS will inform me that there is an
update but when I go to look for what that update is, it isn't there!

32-bit.

To varying degrees I've also heard the reporting of the wrong line in
documents. I've not noticed the announcement of a previous application when
launching a new one, however.

but I can agree that depending on the context, a number might get the th or

the preceding word is interpreted as a month or its abbreviation. Never
could figure out how to turn that off.

And of course also being a long-time JAWS user I've learned to ignore these
quirks. But I can understand how a new student would be confused is the
speech were not as accurate as it should be.
Good points to bring up to Freedom Scientific.

Maybe I'm just getting cranky---a definite possibility--but I find
myself saying more and more often to my students, "JAWS is lying to you."

1. When opening a new document or application, JAWS often rereads
the previous screen before reading the screen it just opened. To a

2. When reading dates, JAWS speaks a 'th' or 'st' or 'rd' after the
date, even though it isn't there. It is important to me to know what

3. When working with an outline in Word 2010, JAWS often but not
consistently reports the line I just pressed enter on, and not the
new line with the outline number. So when I'm planning a party--my
favorite outline--it says "2. send invitations' and not '3', which is
where the cursor is.

I don't think I'm imagining this. Is anyone else having these kinds

Re: JAWS saying the thing that is not

Adrian Spratt
 

Dave and Ann,

Responding to the education angle, I imagine that compounding the problem
is that JAWS's quirks vary from machine to machine. I am not a teacher by
profession, but I have taught a few people how to use JAWS. Fortunately, one
has none of the problems with her machine mentioned in this thread, while
another's has problems I don't. So you have to be aware that the student may
not be making a mistake and that, instead, JAWS is making it for him/her. Or
else you second-guess yourself and figure maybe JAWS is making the mistake
when, in fact, it's the student.

Re: JAWS saying the thing that is not

Adrian Spratt
 

Cy, what interests me here is that you're having this problem with the last
release of JAWS 11. I did experience it with earlier releases of that
version, but hardly ever, if at all, with this one. Hence my frustration
when I find it all over again in JAWS 12, last release, when I finally, um,
upgraded.

Once JAWS gets it into its head that it's supposed to repeat a message, it
keeps doing so even when I open other messages. Sometimes switching to
another folder and then back into my inbox unsticks it. Sometimes I have to
unload JAWS and bring it up again. Time-consuming and distracting. So I keep
going back to that release of JAWS 11 after starting with 12. I'm sorry it
hasn't had the same salutary effect for you.

It seems there's a buffer that isn't being reset as JFW switches between

Re: JAWS saying the thing that is not

Using XP and JFW 11, I find that Jaws sometimes reads from a different app than the one I'm on, or reports blank when there's actually something there. This mostly happens when I go to the Jaws cursor, and only on my laptop. Shutting down and restarting Jaws fixes the problem, but it happens frequently.

Ann,

Using JAWS 12.0.525 regularly and occasionally testing JAWS 13.0.171. XP Pro
32-bit.

To varying degrees I've also heard the reporting of the wrong line in
documents. I've not noticed the announcement of a previous application when
launching a new one, however.

but I can agree that depending on the context, a number might get the th or
rd added when reading line-by-line or in say all. It tends to happen when
the preceding word is interpreted as a month or its abbreviation. Never
could figure out how to turn that off.

And of course also being a long-time JAWS user I've learned to ignore these
quirks. But I can understand how a new student would be confused is the
speech were not as accurate as it should be.
Good points to bring up to Freedom Scientific.

Maybe I'm just getting cranky---a definite possibility--but I find
myself saying more and more often to my students, "JAWS is lying to you."

1. When opening a new document or application, JAWS often rereads
the previous screen before reading the screen it just opened. To a
newby, this is way confusing.

2. When reading dates, JAWS speaks a 'th' or 'st' or 'rd' after the
date, even though it isn't there. It is important to me to know what
I wrote, not what JAWS thinks I want to hear.

3. When working with an outline in Word 2010, JAWS often but not
consistently reports the line I just pressed enter on, and not the
new line with the outline number. So when I'm planning a party--my
favorite outline--it says "2. send invitations' and not '3', which is
where the cursor is.

I don't think I'm imagining this. Is anyone else having these kinds
of issues???

thanks.

Ann

Thanks!
I'm trying that now. It is Saturday here, but I'll be sure to be at my computer at 3:00.

It seems that at approximately 3:00 CDT every day, the USB card into which
I plug in my headset goes silent while I am using JAWS.
I have found that all I have to do is unplug the card, tap the ESCAPE key
to see if JAWS is talking, and plug it in again.
Sometimes it will stop again, but if I repeat the process, all is well
again.
This probably isn't a JAWS issue, but I'm not really sure.
I'm using a ThinkPad 420 -- brand new.
Anyone have any ideas?

Re: JAWS saying the thing that is not

Ann Byrne
 

I think my first JFW was 1.21, after some years with JAWS and DOS. I really do believe, though, that JFW is reading with much less accuracy/clarity than it used to.

At 08:28 AM 10/1/2011, you wrote:
Hi Ann, With the JAWS 13 Beta and XP Home, in Word 7 documents it often reads text on single lines twice with a pattern I have not yet identified.
Additionally, it often jumps to the bottom of messages in Outlook Express when a message is opened.

Re: USB Sound Card

David <davidwhitehead1957@...>
 

Hi there;

I highly doubt this will solve your problem, however,

Have you tried,
Assuming your using jaws 12,
Jaws option/utilities/sound card sub menu,
And choose your sound card,

Not sure,

Automatically Starting JAWS at log-in
