Re: JAWS startup after logging in under Windows 10

Chris Chaffin
 

This is exactly what started happening to me at my work on a Windows 7 machine.
The only way I was able to get Jaws to start after logging in was to put the executable file in the startup folder as suggested.

1. Go to your Desktop, and copy the JAWS Icon to your clipboard.
2. Go to the Windows Run dialog, by pressing Windows plus the letter R.
3. In the run dialogue box, type the following minus the quotes:
"Shell:Startup"
4. Paste the JAWS shortcut into the folder.
5. Restart your computer, and see if JAWS will start then.
Good luck!

It's a work computer. I have administrative access to it, but the account
I'm logging in from is a domain account (I assume it's Microsoft Active
Directory).

Is there a way to find out whether account policies might be responsible? I
can certainly change settings on the local machine, but, obviously, not on
the server.








Re: Downloading and installing Vocalizer Expressive voices.

Shane clark
 

Hi Jason,
Thanks very much for the explanation, I was able to do the install. For some reason, I was having trouble finding the dialog box which asked me to either save or run the file. Butt after a few more attempts, I was able to get it going.
When it ask me to restart Jaws, I did an alt f4, butt when starting the computer back up, I had trouble getting speech to come back on. So I had to get my wife to help me with this. Should I have quit Jaws in some other way? I'm going to be taking a refresher course in Jaws in the next few weeks starting on Tuesday. I still remember a good bit about how to navigate with it, but haven't worked with Windows 10 before. The commission for the blind, just delivered the computer yesterday, so I'm just wondering are there any other new things I need to know about with the new features in Jaws 17 and Windows 10?
Thanks, Shane.

If you're on the correct page, you'll find two combo boxes, one to select the
voices (you want Vocalizer Expressive) and another to choose the language.
Once you've done this, you should be able to navigate through the page to find
the download links. The next step is to download the installer, run it, and
follow the prompts to complete the installation. Finally, restart JAWS and
select the new voice in your voice profile.

I hope something in the above explanation helps you to move beyond whatever
the problem might be.





Re: mouse pad and jaws

David Moore
 

Hi Mark,
With JAWS, nothing will be spoken when you trace around the touch pad. With Narrator, If you press Caps Lock+num Lock, you will toggel the function. You can hear what is spoken under your finger as you trace the touch pad if you turn that on in Narrator, and you can turn it back off with the same command. With NVDA, you get a lot of information when you trace your finger around the touch pad. Take care.

Will jaws 17 work the same way or should it speak what ever is invoked?

Thank you for all your help.

Hi,
I use Open Office with JAWS, and it is as good and accessible with JAWS, for what I want to do, as MS Office since I am not in school anymore LOL!

Re: Deleting an account in Outlook 2013

You need to be actually looking at the contents of your second account before you can delete your first one. Deleting your first account will not be an option as long as your first account is the one Outlook considers active.

I have 2 accounts. I can read them with Jaws when Outlook first opens in the tree view. However, when I go to account settings, the account I wish to delete, which may have been my first one created, does not appear.

Lauren,

             I suspect that this is the account whose inbox is currently open.  You cannot delete any account when any one of its folders is the one that has active focus.  If you have only one account, this means that you cannot delete it until you have created a second account and have focus on that account in the tree view of messages before trying to delete the first one.
