That is the process I followed to update, and I did not experience any issues… I am running the latest build of JAWS 17. I invoked and used Narrator with WINDOWS+ENTER to navigate the initial set up screens after the update completed. After the set up screens were completed and I got to the desktop, I could start JAWS, and my settings remained intact. The only thing I noticed was that, because I had invoked Narrator during set up, it was set to automatically turn on after a restart of the computer. I just had to go into Narrator settings and disable that.

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all doing well.

I am running Windows 10 Enterprise on my home laptop. I am currently
running v1151, or something like that.

I have not been prompted for the update yet but, upon reviewing a
Microsoft support page, I discovered that, should I wish to force the update, I can:

1.
From the Windows update dialog box, select the Learn More link located
at the end of the, "Looking for more information on the latest update?" text.

2.
Upon activating the link, a Microsoft webpage opens containing a link
to the Anniversary version.

So, my question is: Has anyone used this method to update their computer?
If so, were there any problems with Jaws, during the update process?

windows 10 annivesary update still waiting

Marvin Hunkin <startrekcafe@...>
 

Hi. my windows update 1511 is up to date, still waiting for the windows anniversary update, almost three weeks after relaserelease. In Australia. Must be very slow, or maybe some thing, did try to install via the updater, but lost all audio, had to call Microsoft disability help desk and with sighted help, roll back to windows 7, then rolled back to windows 10 64 bit 1511, and got the idt audio driver. So, waiting for the update, as well in windows update. Or maybe might have to see if I can contact some one high in the head of windows development, at Microsoft. Maybe joseph has got a contact I can contact there. And might have to google see if there’s a patch for windows 10 64 bit 1511, to see if it will see the 1607 update. Almost three weeks. Don’t want to lose my audio again, so not going to use the updater, our internet is slow, hoping to have the set top box cables fixed, and our home phone is not working, brops out, breaking up, crackling, people cannot hear.

So still waiting for the update.

Marvin from Adelaide, Australia.

Hi,

Yes Windows 10 has taken that keystroke for something else it seems.  I did read on twitter that an update is soon to be forth coming with a different key map.  Meanwhile my way around this was to do a clean uninstall and reinstall thus the program came up in main window where I could edit the keystroke to my own liking for the time being.  I’d been told that this can also be done via the conf file but doing so didn’t work for me.

Re: A Question About Installing The Windows 10 Anniversary Update

 

Hi,

If you are using Windows 10 Home, you’ll be asked to keep up with major upgrades (the Anniversary Update or Version 1607 is the latest, and there will be two coming next year, according to Microsoft). Anniversary Update restore partial first letter navigation in Start Menu, refined Action Center and more.

The way we think about major upgrades is quite different in Windows 10 ecosystem, as these are released within a few months of each other. This means the issues that we saw a few weeks ago may resurface in a different form (possibly) next spring once the next major upgrade is released.

Cheers,

Joseph

Regarding this anniversary Window 10 update, it seems to be a major update.

Why would I want to do it?

I have been getting the frequent updates for a year now. I upgraded to Windows 10, from Windows 7, 1 year ago.

Because of the daily updates, I assumed that my current Windows 10 was already up to date.

Is there any advantage to updating to the Windows 10 anniversary version?
Is there a risk that all existing applications will be wiped out?

1, create new document,

2, now we need to save,
So press alt+f4,
Or,
F12,
This will take you to a save dialog,
Save as dialog,
Give the file a name,

3, shift+tab until you hear,
Tree-view,
Most likely you will hear one-drive closed,
Down arrow until you hear,
This pc closed,
Right arrow to open, find documents and press enter.
Now continue with the save process.
Hope this helps.

Hello, everyone.
I am trying to find the place to change the setting to save my documents to my local disk “documents” instead of my Onedrive. Can someone help me with this? I am running Windows 8.1 Jaws 16. Thanks for your help.

Are there other clients that a totally blind person can use?

Thanks.

Hi,
chicken Nugget is a desktop client allowing blind people to access twitter
without needing to interact with the site.
I hope that helps.

Robin, I've noticed that when going through tweets in Chicken Nugget,
sometimes Jaws is very slow to respond when I press down arrow to move from
tweet to tweet. I hope this is addressed in the update. I'm also running
Windows 10's anniversary release.

Hi,
Yes Windows 10 has taken that keystroke for something else it seems. I did
read on twitter that an update is soon to be forth coming with a different
key map. Meanwhile my way around this was to do a clean uninstall and
reinstall thus the program came up in main window where I could edit the
keystroke to my own liking for the time being. I’d been told that this can
also be done via the conf file but doing so didn’t work for me.
I hope this helps.

Ever since I updated Windows 10 to the Anniversary update I can’t get the
main screen to come up for Chicken Nugget. Alt-Windows-W no longer works. I’ve
also tried ctrl-Windows-W and Alt-ctrl-Windows-W. Is anyone else having this
issue?

Re: Save Documents to Local as Default

 

Elise,

           Try doing a Windows Search on "default save locations."  I do not have a Windows 8.1 computer handy, but there is a system setting under Win10 that allows you to tweak this.  I changed mine from OneDrive to "This PC" on day one.

            What Bill White describes is true enough, but there are far too many opportunities as you open various programs for OneDrive to be used "first in line" if that's what the system has set as the initial default save location.  It's far better to remove it from the equation entirely such that saves there can only happen by intention, not by accident.

Hi, Elise. I believe you need to go into the "Save As" dialog using F12, then press the Browse button, once you are saving a document. If you once save a document to your local drive, all future documents should save to that location until you change it again.
