As for the stuttering with Jaws, make sure your soundcard doesn’t have sound enhancements or whatever it is called enabled. This used to make Jaws sound horrible on my laptop

Subject: High CPU usage after installing SSD

 

Hello list,

So over the weekend, I swapped out my old hard drive with an SSD. I’m up and running and am coming across high CPU usage and can’t figure out why. It’s a clean install of Windows 7, 8 GB of ram and iCore 3 2.2 GHZ processor. The PC and Jaws feels sluggish at times too. The machine boots fast as would be expected, but launching of programs still takes a bit. At least more than what one would anticipate with an SSD. Standard programs like Office 2016, Malwarebytes/Essentials and Jaws 18. No files as of yet. The drive is more or less empty.

Jaws is stuttering too. The stuttering thing I had way back when and was able to fix it at that time, but for the life of me, can’t recall how I got rid of it.

Anyway, I’m going to check later for any firmware updates for the SSD (Crucial) in case that may help, but generally, I was curious if there was anything else I may have overlooked or can adjust to bring down the CPU usage. I’m talking anywhere from a consistent 78 to 98%.

Any input would be appreciated.

JAWS 18 and RDP Sessions

milamj@...
 

Hi All,

 

I am having difficulty using JAWS in RDP sessions.  Since the computers to which I am connecting must be logged on 24/7, I use Disconnect instead of Logoff to terminate the session.  The problem I am having is that quite often when I connect via an RDP session, speech is not available with JAWS.  I usually have to end the JAWS process through Task Manager and then restart it again to have speech.  However, this doesn’t always work, and I have to restart the entire computer to resolve it.  Other times it connects without difficulty and speech is immediately available.  I have checked to run JAWS and logon and after all users using Always, but this hasn’t helped.  The only consistent connection I can get is with a computer on which JAWS is registered with my auth code.  I was under the impression that the auth code wasn’t needed for computer running JAWS remotely, however, and so this doesn’t explain the inconsistency I’m seeing.  The problem is happening on several different desktops with 2 running WIN7 and 1 running WIN10.  Does anyone have ideas on this?

 

Thanks,

Jonathan


Quicken question

BSTMAIL@...
 

Hello. I am a very basic user of JAWS 18.0 .2118 and J-say with Dragon. Just upgraded to 18 version. Prior to upgrade was successfully using Quicken 2016. Now JAWS does not read any of the transaction information (the date, payee, category, etc.). Can anyone provide information to assist me? I appreciate any and all information.

Peace, Brenda                


help!

Greetings,
I'm running jaws 17.0 and inquiring how Jaws can maneuver in a windows within windows enviroment as well as handling popups?
I'm working in a hotel reservation center and the software has split screens.  Any help/suggestions would greatly be appreciated.
Many thanks,
Dan Reid     


Re: High CPU usage after installing SSD

Actually, I consider a quarter second unacceptable.  That is why I am considering upgrading my new Windows 10 machine to Windows 7.  I have a fast quad core Xeon processor, 32gb ram and a 1tb M.2 SSD that is supposed to be at least 4 times the speed of a top of the line SATA SSD.  I don’t know if it is Windows 10 or Jaws 18, but this machine is less responsive than my old Windows 7 machine with a dual core I3, normal SSD and only 8gb ram.  Once a program is running it is noticeably faster than my old machine and it flys while running multiple programs, which leads me to believe it is not a hardware problem.

A brandnew SSD should be fine although of course any new product can be a lemon and be defective out of the box which is what warranties are for.

Some large programs still may take a bit to open, SSD’s are great but it’s not like everything will pop up ready to go in half a second.

Wrong list, I think? If you are talking about an iPhone, you are probably using the rotor by mistake and changing the speed. Move it to a different setting, and your speed won’t get wonky.

Here are the Plain Old Favorites instalation instructions
I have.

I know that some people have trouble doing the instalation
from the file
provided in the main link for the program. ... I always
had better luck
installing the executable file I have and then doing the
install.

This is one of the reasons I'm reluctant to un-install and
re-install
Firefox to deal with my other issue with the user account
dialog when
launching the browser.

I can work around the dialog for now, but it sure is
anoying!

Yes, you use an add-on called plain old favorites.

It syncs your Firefox and internet explorer favorites.

It's a bit tricky to set up, but it does work.

If you want to give me a private e-mail address, I'll send
you the
executable file and setup instructions that I have.

I'm saying this because I doubt that the list will accept

What did you do to organize them in Internet Explorer? The
organizing

Re: Firefox Issue

HH:

I suspect that un-installing, and then re-installing Firefox as you suggest
will wipe out my Plain Old Favorites app for syncing internet favorites
between Internet Explorer and Firefox.

This is why I'm a bit reluctant to do the re-install, but it might be the
best thing in the end.

At least I have the Plain Old Favorites executable file on hand here.

Thanks for these instructions.

Does Firefox have Favorites and Book Mark? I don't use it enough to know and
still have favorites in Internet Explorer. I would hate to lose my

most convenient to have them.

Which just goes into the favorites menu, so technically, yes. It is the
roundabout way I was referring to in my earlier message. I know in IE, you
can use Control D to add them as is the case with Firefox. However, using it
in FF still puts them in the bookmarks menu. I'll just have to remember not
to do that!

The other way you can add to favorites is vie the arrow

in
the favorites menu, like you do in Internet Explorer.

Sorry, I wasn't clearer about that initially.

Tom,

Are you pressing control D to add them to favorites, or
are you pressing
alt
A and then adding them? That might be the issue for me. I
see control D,
the
Firefox default, adds them to bookmarks, whereas if I go
the roundabout
way,
I can get them into the favorites menu and folder.

Thanks.

Ok, Alyssa.

Let's try this again:

1. Press CONTROL plus O to open the file browser.
2. Tab to open the downloads folder so you can select the
file:
PlainOldFavorites.xpi
3. Press Enter.
4. Firefox will tell you that it is installing the AdOn.
5. Close Firefox and restart it again.
6. See if you can now add a new favorite in the Add
window.

Hopefully, this is a little better.
