Re: Open office

 

It's been repeatedly stated on this particular forum that Open Office is accessible via JAWS.  I can't say how "fully" qualifies as "fully" to any given user, but there are lots of folks here who are using Open Office as their suite of choice.

Yes they just changed it's name is all. I think the official website is
openoffice.org if that helps you. I'm not near a computer so I can't
doublecheck that. So you might want to check it out for yourself.

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.

Hi Brian:

 

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.

Re: JAWS startup after logging in under Windows 10

Michael Mote
 

Hi there! I can tell you how I have gotten around this. If it is a work
policy, the network admins would have to make changes. Your best bet would
be to add the JAWS executeable to the start-up folder in windows. Here is
how to do this:
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

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

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.

Strange. Never seen this. I suggest you reboot jaws and send an error report
to FS by pressing insert + windows + f4. Once you do this, restart your
computer and see if it works. If not, you will have to repair jaws.

I have administrative rights on the machine and I always answer "yes"
