Latest Jaws Update?

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

 

This morning, I received notification that a new Jaws update is available.

 

Does anyone have info as to what this update addresses?

 

Am trying to decide whether to download and install it here.

 

Am currently using Jaws 17.0.2211.

 

Thank you!

 

Dr.  Tom Behler from Michigan

I have been told that Jaws will always say jaws professional, even if you
only have the home edition.
If you are running jaws home edition in windows 10 and you have Jaws start
automatically,
would you please tell me what jaws states, when ever you start up your
computer.

Thank you for helping me to understand some strange happenings!!!

It says Jaws Home use Edition. If it says Professional it's probably in 40 minute mode.

Hi, Sandra. You can still get Adobe Flash Player. Just follow the steps at the website below. Be sure to uncheck boxes associated with Chrome if you're not using Chrome as your Internet Browser. What will happen when you click Install now is this. You will begin receiving a download of an .exe file which you will run to install Flash Player.
 
Here is the link.

Hi, all,
 
First, let me get one thing straight: they are no longer offering Flash Player, and now, it’s Shockwave, correct? Like a fool, I got rid of the add-ons through Manage Add-Ons, and so, went to Adobe proper to see if I could get either Flash or Shockwave; well, after multiple experiments, I find either I am clueless about how to make Adobe work for the installation process, or it’s just plain not accessible. Any tricks that would get installations to happen, using JAWS? Can’t use Youtube now, and am pining for it...

Re: Using Microsoft Narrator to download and install JAWS

Pablo Morales
 

Yes, you are able to download jaws using narrator. It is what I did;

Open ie.

Go to the address bar, pressing alt d, and typing the URL of freedom scientific.

Freedomscientific.com

Press enter

Now you press control f, to search for downloads

Now you press enter.

Now you press again control f, and now search for jaws, then press enter

Again, ppress control f and search again for jaws, but this time you will be pending of listening which jaws are you finding pressing control f. So when you find the version of jaws that you want, press enter.

It is all,

Hi,

 

You could also use NVDA installed on a USB memory stick. You’d have to know the drive letter of the USB drive in order to start NVDA, but you could press Windows R to bring up the run command, and then try different drive letters, i.e. E:\NVDA. If this doesn’t work, press escape, then Windows R followed by F:\NVDA, etc.

 

The nice thing about running NVDA from a thumb drive is, unlike Jaws, you don’t need to install video intercept or anything else.

 

You, of course, will need to have Jaws, or another screen reader  running in order to download and install the portable version of NVDA.

HTH.

Under Windows 10, it definitely works. I used Narrator to install JAWS by
downloading it with MSIE. I then used JAWS to install Firefox, Chrome and

other applications.

I am pretty sure win+enter does _not_ work on win7, IIRC it's win+u
there,, though that may just bring up the accessibility center with
speech enabled. If win+u does not start narrator I know the
accessibility center can do so.

Narrator was beefed up in Windows 10, and I know these steps would work on
Windows 10:

Press the Windows Key + Enter simultaneously to start Narrator. This works
at the login screen in Windows 10.
Hold down Caps Lock and use the left/right arrow keys to move between
objects/buttons/controls. This works at the login screen and on web pages.

I was able to use Narrator in this fashion to login, download, and install
JAWS on a new Windows 10 installation. However, Narrator was far less
sophisticated in Windows 7 so this may not work.

I hope this helps!

I think the easiest way is to press the windows key+r, type narrator and press enter. I don't know if it can be set to load at the login screen.

I know it works on win 8, 8.1 and 10. I'm not sure that win 7's
narrator is robust enough to manage it (the hardest step is using it
with internet explorer to perform the actual download, everything else
is trivial).

It does not state the button left key on num pad either.
