Re: media creation tool didn't download new or so it appears

"Kevin Hourigan " <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Hello Maria,

 

Please confirm,

When I press the Windows key I get Cortana or a search edit field, and when I tab or arrow I get Most used, account picture, Jaws 17, control panel, and some other programs, but no sign of systems; is that what is referred to as the start menu? Since tabbing and arrowing does not produce system to hit enter upon.

Cheers Kevin.

OK.  Now I'm nervous.  If I press the keys you mention, I get the message of having even an earlier build than you. However, if I press start menu, tab to system and enter, down arrow to about and enter, I get the version of 1607.

What to do?

I went to System in the control panel, could not find About, but pressing the Windows Key, and then insert, control, V, did announce a version. 10.0.185…, so I take it I am not up-dated to the anniversary version?

You can go to system then to about, and it will tell you the version of w10, which should be 1607 if it has updated.

if the MCT is less than 17000 KB, you've got the older version.

Ken, Edge isn't supported yet. Blind Barbains was talking about Edge and not its accessibility with screen readers. I'm not even sure Cortana uses Internet Explorer as the default browser with Jaws as was stated earlier this week.

Since it still works well enough I didn't feel the need to attempt anything other.

When transcribing MP3s or other audio files, has anyone tried transcription software from NCH, or has anyone tried using a media player and setting up global hotkeys so you can control the player without moving out of the word processing program you're using to type the transcription?


If either scenario has been attempted with Windows 10 as the operating system, I'd love to hear about it.

Re: copying jaws configuration and personal settings to a different computer

Hi,

You can find your personal settings from:
All Programs> JAWS> Explore JAWS> Explore My Settings

Copy all the items from here and just paste in the same directory of
another computer.
If you want specific configurations, then copy only the one you need.


Thanks & Regards,
