Re: PC wireless adapter recommendation

I'm using a Zonet adapter on my w7 machine that works even better than the wireless card on my w10 machine.

Hello,

 

In the near future I will need to use my desktop PC in a location away from my hard wired home network. There is WI-FI available but my PC does not have a wireless card in it.

I have researched them somewhat and I see mixed reviews with folks using Windows 10. Here is what I have and want.

I have a Win 64 bit PC with 8 MB ram, windows 10, and most recent version of JAWS. I’m looking for a USB 3.0 wireless WI-FI adapter, preferably plug & play with minimal configuration. Wondering if anyone on the list is using something like this and could offer some comments and recommendations? All suggestions appreciated.

 

Best,

Hello,

Has anyone else experienced this?
I noticed it a few days ago after updating to the latest JAWS 17.

When I press the Windows key, all I hear is: "cortana".
JAWS no longer announces the items as I arrow up or down. This is what happened with JAWS 16 and the new Windows 10.

If I kill JAWS and start NVDA, then I can hear the Start Menu items.

The Windows key still works together with the other keys:
  WINDOWS+e for File Explorer and
  WINDOWS+ i for the setting.

I'm just curious if anyone else has noticed this problem.

I ran the latest JAWS version in the run box:

After the clicks, JAWS wanted to restart. That repair process seemed to work but I still cannot open the Start Menu using the WINDOWS key.

I can still close all, using WINDOWS+d, an then tab to the Start button and use the applications key. Most of the Start Menu items are in the list.

My next step will be to uninstall JAWS 17 and reinstall it.

Hi,
In order to repair JAWS, you must paste a copy of the executable right on your hard drive. I know that for sure, and I am not quite sure what you type in the run dialog.

Hello Joseph,

I want to try a repair but I don't know if there is a specific executable to use.

I tried to run the following but WINDOWS says that it cannot be found:

c:\program files\freedom scientific\jaws\17.0\jfw.exe /type repair

I assume that I should run the executable: jfw.exe
Is that correct?

Hi again, Elise. Here's what Google says about removing text formatting in documents
 
To get rid of all the styles, text effects, and font formatting in your document, do the following:
1. Select the text that you want to clear the formatting from. Or press CTRL+A to select everything in the document.
2. On the Home tab, in the Font group, click Clear Formatting.

Re: Windows 10 Start Menu no longer recognized by the latest JAWS 17 update.

 

Hi,

Try:

Open Run dialog and type:

Jaws17 /repair

Also, a member of the Win10 group suggests completely removing and reinstalling JAWS 17, and other members cannot reproduce this issue.

In short, no. Scrivener for windows is pretty much completely useless

seem accessible though I haven't got sufficient mastery of the Mac to
give much of a detailed assessment.
