Re: Trouble authorizing JAWS 12

Adrian Spratt
 

Hi, Adi.

What I wrote was, and is, true, a point I make only to minimize confusion
for anyone less familiar with the JAWS authorization process.

What you say here is a qualification, though I'm not quite sure what you're
getting at. Yes, if you've used up your allotted authorizations, you'll need
to go through the process that Joni described. But that's an exception, not
the rule.

Hi, You are not asked for authorization, because in your JAWS about dialog,
it knows that you have upgrades. But, if you authorize JAWS before
perchasing upgrades, and JAWS would show 0 upgrades remaining and you
perchase the SMA later, you will need to re-authorize it so it will
recognize the upgrade.

Best regards,

Adi.

Adi,

Strange, but I find the same result as that of Adrian. Do not need to
re-authorize when upgrading to a new version.

However if you allow your SMA count to go to 0 then you will have to
re-authorize.

authorization, could be found in the JAWS help menu.

Thanks for giving us this update. You'll find when installing JAWS 13 that
the authorization that's now in your system will stay in effect for it and
future versions. You won't need to use the authorization disc, although you
should keep it somewhere safe, or go to the website for it. From here on,
you'll need to authorize only if you use JAWS on another system or if you
upgrade your current system, which includes by adding memory.

I just talked to tech support and they resolved the issue. I have JAWS 5 on
my computer. I did download JAWS 12 from the Internet.

They had me go to the fs activate website to do the authorization and it
worked out fine. She did not say why I could not do it the typical way.
Maybe it will work for me when I get 13.

Joni Colver <earlybird@...>
 

Regarding the issue being discussed about re-authorizing and SMA's, I am
covered now through JAWS 15.

I will probably be back with some questions while trying to learn JAWS 12.
I am happy with its performance so far, but I know there are a lot of
changes I will have to get used to.

Joni,
My advice is to always use the www.fsactivate.com site for any new
activations. Never had a problem with it. And now that you've done an ILM
you shouldn't need to use the CD again, since your 20-digit code is
incorporated into your operating system.

Re: Trouble authorizing JAWS 12

Adrian Spratt
 

Am I right to infer that you don't have an earlier version of JAWS installed
on your machine? Also, do I correctly understand that you downloaded the
current update of JAWS 12 rather than installed it from the CD, and that the
only part you're doing by CD is to attempt authorization?

With all that in mind, I think you'd be best advised to call FS's tech
support, assuming you live in the US and that option is feasible for you.

When I try to authorize JAWS, I insert the CD and follow the prompts. The
20-digit code is displayed, but at that point the computer just sits there

I only have the Windows firewall. I also still have I E 6, which is the

Could the firewall or the old browser be preventing me from successfully
authorizing JAWS? Does anyone have any ideas I can try or am I destined to

I had a problem authorizing versio 12 as well. It would complete but still
be in demo mode. Had to uninstall Jaws, delete the authorization
information in program files, and start over.

Don't know if that would help you.

Fw: JAWS 13 Public Beta 3 scheduled for 2 PM eastern,October 13

Gerald Levy
 

From: "Eric Damery" <Edamery@FreedomScientific.com>

Sent: Thursday, October 13, 2011 12:45 PM
Subject: JAWS 13 Public Beta 3 scheduled for 2 PM eastern,October 13

All,
At 2 PM Eastern, you should find an update to JAWS 13 Public Beta 3. The
new version will be 13.0.241 and you will get alerted the next time JAWS
starts, after it is released.
I have included the list of changes coming in this new build for you to
review. Thanks again to everyone for the great feedback over the past
weeks.
Eric Damery
Enhancements in JAWS 13.0.241 (October 13, 2011)
The following is a list of improvements made between JAWS 13.0.171,
public beta 2, and 13.0.241, public beta 3. Note that while many
customer reported enhancements are included in this release, the
following is a list of more notable changes.
JAWS
* Resolved an issue with all of the sports scores look up sources
for Research It not returning any results.
* Resolved issues with the Stock Quotes Research It look up
source.
* Resolved an issue selecting Mark Colors in Braille from the Run
JAWS Manager dialog box where JAWS would use the Custom Highlight Assign
instead. Selecting Mark Colors in Braille now works as expected.
* You can now perform commands that include the SPACEBAR directly
from a Focus braille display. For example, ALT+SPACEBAR to open the
System menu, or INSERT+SPACEBAR to activate the JAWS keystrokes layer.
* Updated the INSERT+W help message for the Webinar training room
plug-in to remove references to keystrokes that are no longer supported.
* If Quick Settings is open in another window, resolved an issue

Trouble authorizing JAWS 12

Joni Colver <earlybird@...>
 

I have never done an ILM authorization or activation. I downloaded JAWS 12
on Monday. I paid for the upgrade and received the CD in the mail.

When I try to authorize JAWS, I insert the CD and follow the prompts. The
20-digit code is displayed, but at that point the computer just sits there
and seemingly does nothing. I tried this last night and am trying it again
today. I do not get an error message. I also do not get any indication the
process is underway.

I only have the Windows firewall. I also still have I E 6, which is the
main reason I am upgrading so I can get 8.

Could the firewall or the old browser be preventing me from successfully
authorizing JAWS? Does anyone have any ideas I can try or am I destined to
visit tech support? Thanks.

Joni


BlindTunes 1.1.5 Released works with iTunes 10.5

John Martyn
 

Hi all,
After a big scare with the scripts not working, I corrected the issues and
made some compatibility changes for iTunes 10.5.
First off, the scripts got corrupted and some weird code appeared. I had to
revert back to an older version and correct the issues.
Focus issues are much better along with the itunes store. Using the sidebar
and search functions work better too.
I am glad iTunes 10.5 didn't break hardly anything since the code is built
to adapt.
Anyway, download the new version here:
http://www.BlindTunes.net/BlindTunesSetup.exe
Regards,
John Martyn

I assume you were just being funny. But if not, I think the word was suppose
to be joiner. Amazon also works. And if you want to torrent, Utorrent is
accessible.

Do you perhaps have a skim reading option turned on. Check it out in the settings center.
