Re: installing jfw without burning a key

Adrian Spratt
 

Ted, see FS's list of revisions for the forthcoming JAWS 13 update. Kimsan
posted it yesterday. Your problem may well have been a defect in JAWS.

Yes, I read about the UAC problem, but I run XP Media Center (read XP Pro),
so I'm still at a loss. It's probably something in the startup or services
group, something that gets in their early.

Hello there;

Not sure what the problem was:
However,
Jaws13 takes a little longer to install because of the OCR feature/files
needs to be downloaded, Also, if you tried to activate, not sure wich
version of windows, however, if it's vista, or win7, Maybe the UAC was
blocking the FSActivate process, as it did with one of my clients.
You can go to:

http://www.freedomscientific.com/_vti_Activate/FSActivate.asp

here you can find out how many keys you have remaining, before a reset.

I installed 13 yesterday, and had to get Jason to do a Tandem to get it in.
Worse, I followed his suggestion and trashed my old authorization.
I imagine this means I'm out of keys, and will have to refill before I can
install here at the office. The Tandem worked fine (yes, Virginia, you can
do it on dial up), but I can't figure out where the block was, and have no
guarantee it won't happen again next year. As I'm running XP Pro, the
solution put forth last week is inapplicable. It has to be something small.

On the plus side, this looks to be lucky 13--really sweet. I had a little
trouble with OCR, but finally realized Eric was using different settings on
his machine. After reading the help screen several times, I finally
realized the whole thing had to be done with the JAWS cursor, which is why
it kept saying JAWS cursor--talk about getting hit over the head. The
formatting was lousy on the Kenwood manual, and there were a lot of typos,
but it worked! Boy, were you guys right about the default voice--sounds
like Julia Childes in drag!

Kimsan,

So you're saying that your JAWS 12 runs in 40-minute mode and you have no
more activations left on the FSActivate web site?

IF so, it won't help your install of JAWS 13.

If you had previously saved your activation and authorization folders from
your previous non-demo-mode JAWS 12 you could then recover them and JAWS
12
should then run normally.

If you have JAWS 12 running normally then installing JAWS 13 should not
require you to reactivate -- unless...you don't have any more SMA to allow
you to run JAWS 13. If that is the case, the technique to not burn a key
will not help.

So I'm a bit confused with your question and your exact situation, as you
can surmise.

oldest version to the most current one.

I am referencing the steps that someone provided a while back. I am aware it
is not garenteed to work on a windows 7 machine but I got lucky last time.



Why do I want 12 seeing as I have 13 running? No special reason, just
curious on how it would work if it would work.

Re: how do I get rid of tutor messages?

Tom Lange
 

Hi Deb,
Press insert+j to go into the JAWS window or the JAWS menu if you're running JAWS in the system tray. Open the Options menu or submenu and press enter on Basics. In the Basic Settings dialog, you'll land on Tutor Messages, which is the first set of radio buttons. Use your down arrow to get to "turn off menu and control help", and press enter. That oughta do it...

Yes, JAWS is unlike many other applications in that the latest version
doesn't replace earlier ones. They exist side-by-side.

When you go to programs from the start menu, press j and arrow down, you'll
find all the versions of JAWS stored on your system.

You can select which version takes precedence by checking the "Automatically
start JAWS" checkbox that you find as follows:

1. Press insert-j.
2. Press enter on options.
3. Press enter on Basics.
4. Tab to "Automatically start Jaws" and press spacebar.
5. Tab to OK and press spacebar again.

Hi,

How would I install JAWS 13 while still having version 12 on my computer? I
don't understand how you select which one would start up when Windows
starts. Where does JAWS start up from?

Re: how do I get rid of tutor messages?

Shane Davidson <shane@...>
 

Deb;
The following steps will help you.
1. press JAWSKey+J to bring focus to the jaws window, or jaws menu depending
on your configuration.
2. if you are in a menu, this means your jaws window was in the system tray.
Press the letter O.
If you simply here JAWS then this means it's an actual window, so you'll
need to press alt+O to bring up the options menu.
3. Press the letter B for the basics... dialog.
4. the 1st control you'll land in is what you want, use up and down arrows
to highlight the turn off menu and control help radio button.
5. if you wish to turn off access keys as well, press tab once, and arrow up
and down until you find the off radio button.
6. Press enter to activate the OK button and exit the dialog.
Let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
Have a great night.

Re: More then one JAWS?

Dondi
 

Which one 11, 12, or 13 loads with Windows? Or are you launching JAWS after
Windows? If version 11 is loading with Windows and you uninstall it how
would you launch another version of JAWS at startup? Would you reinstall one
of the other versions so that it loaded when Windows starts

Dondi?

Re: open parent document button

Tom Lange
 

Hi Kimsan,
What version of JAWS are you running and what version of your web browser are you using? If you're using an older version of JAWS with Internet Explorer 8 or higher, you might encounter this problem, in which case you need to update your JAWS or roll back to an earlier browser version. Just a thought. Hope this helps.

Tom

Enhancements in JAWS 13.0.527 (November 2011)

* Resolved an issue encountered on some systems when updating

speech and sounds scheme.

Options in Quick Settings.

Settings when contracted braille translation is set to Output only.

This only occured in Word 2007.

* JAWS no longer incorrectly announces indentation information

when encountering outdented text, such as in an outline.

* Resolved a customer reported issue with the New Lines and

Explorer.

longer work after typing text into a table cell.

INSERT+T even when you are positioned on a heading. Note that the

currently selected heading is included with the title information. This was
also addressed in Internet Explorer.

* Toggling the Document Automatically Reads check box in Quick

Settings now works as expected. When this option is cleared, JAWS will not
automatically read the Web page after it loads.

Visual Studio

* Addressed an issue where you had to press ALT+TAB to move away

from the application and back to get focus into the output window after
starting a compile.

Windows 7

* Addressed an issue encountered after using ALT+TAB to move to

the Desktop where JAWS would not announce the count of the selected item,
for example, five of eight. Pressing INSERT+T would also not speak the
window title. This did not occur if WINDOWS Key+M was used to go to the
Desktop.

I have versions 11,12,and 13 on my computer. Each one has a different shortcut key; J for 13, F for 12 and W for 11. I will probably drop 11 after a while. Tom

Hi,

How would I install JAWS 13 while still having version 12 on my computer? I
don't understand how you select which one would start up when Windows
starts. Where does JAWS start up from?
