Re: JAWS and Word

I am using alt r then w. I did find out that the command won't work in the latest version of JAWS 17. I will use JAWS key, page down now. FS also doesn't think there will be any more updates to JAWS 17 to fix it.

Re: Opening up devices and printers

Shai
 

Hello Lauren,
I just tried this for myself and there is a noticeable delay when
attempting to open Devices and Printers from the control panel with
JAWS18 or as Sieghard suggested from the search box. When I tried
opening it with Narrator, the delay seems to have been less. I am not
sure how to resolve this except to suggest that you try Narrator when
opening this area and see if the delay decreases.
Hope this helps

Hello Marianne, I have not, and I have 3 or 4 computers that are running 17 with Word 2016. What method are you using to check the word count?

I am using the latest version of JAWS 17 that came out last week. I wanted a word count in Microsoft Word 2016 and JAWS totally locked up. It happened two times. I was able to use another screen reader to get the word count. Has anyone else had a similar problem?

Not sure what would cause that, I just tried it by starting to type "Devices and P" in the search box at which point the selection was given, I pressed enter and it opened immediately.

Here is what you do if you are using win10. Press windows+I to open the settings app. Tab once to system and press enter. You are on display so tab to the combo box and arrow to landscape and save the setting. There you go. Ask anymore questions.

another way for windows 7:
press the windows key and search for change screen orientation and press
enter,
press tab to the orientation setting, use the arrow up or down to choose
the landscape choice, be aware there is a landscape flip which turns the
display up side down,
tab to and press the space bar on the ok button.

This has caused friction at times, and has inspired the creation of a new group: BlindLife.

The group description is as follows: "A place for discussing technology, daily living tips n' tricks, accessibility, disability law, and pretty much anything else with a focus on relation to those who are blind or vision-impaired. Those who are sighted are welcome, too."

Hello, everyone.



My intent with this e-mail is not to stir up controversy, but to try to get the truth regarding upgrading a Jjaws SMA.



Here’s my situation:



My current Jaws SMA ends with Jaws 18.



I recently received a mail notification from Freedom Scientific advising me that I can renew my Jaws SMA for the next two Jaws upgrades for $120, as long as I do so by December 31. In a followup conversation with the FS Customer Service Department, I was told that if I wait to renew my SMA after December 31, that cost will go up to $180.



I was always under the impression that the $120 SMA renewal cost figure would be the same as long as you renewed your SMA prior to the next major Jaws update.



Perhaps I am mistaken here, and wonder what others know about this issue.



I may not be able to renew my SMA prior to December 31, and just want to know what to expect, or how to advocate for a fair price.



Thanks!
