Re: Driver update utility which is useable with JAWS

Ok... it's been a while since I used Windows 7. So tell me how you get that it is using the FS driver as the quote default display driver?

I can't remember the Windows 7 device manager well enough to be sure but on Windows 10 doesn't have a 1uote default driver that I can find. It simply lists the FS driver and the driver for the video hardware currently in use.

Hello David:

I did look in Device Manager! And yes, both drivers are listed. And by the way, when I downloaded and installed the updates from Microsoft, included among them was a specific driver for the particular model of the toshiba laptop but, despite downloading and installing the updated driver, Windows has chosen to keep the Freedom Scientific Mirror Driver as the default graphics driver.

Yes, the monitor does work!

Thank you for your suggestions.

Subject: Driver update utility which is useable with JAWS

Hello everyone:

Well, the subject says it all. I have recently acquired a Toshiba Laptop,
which is about 4 years old.

I used a talking install of Windows 7 Professional to install said operating
system.

I Then installed JAWS 14.

I have downloaded and installed all the updates for said operating system.

In addition, I installed Java and Flash Player.

Our next door neighbour came in the other day and told me that the
computer's monitor was black.

I downloaded a driver update utility, which indicated that the Freedom
scientific Mirror Driver was being used by Windows 7 as the default video
driver.

Unfortunately, unlike audio devices which might be connected, either
internally or externally to a computer, where you can choose which audio
device is the default sound card, it appears, that the same capability is
not available for choosing which display/video driver should be the default
device.

So far, I have tried two driver download utilities, neither is very
accessible or easy to use with JAWS. One of which, using the JAWS cursor, I
can find and click the "Update Drivers" button but, I cannot insert the
License key to register the program.

The other, I could register the program but, after clicking the button to
start the driver download process, there is a confirmation box which opens
with "yes" and "no" buttons. I tried clicking the "Yes" button with the JAWS
left mouse button, only to be met with the Windows Ding sound. I pressed the
ENTER key, hoping that would acknowledge the confirmation to start the
download, only to be returned to the Desktop.

So, I come to the fund of knowledge, where, hopefully, there are members on
this list, who can suggest/recommend such a utility which, if not 100 %
user-friendly using JAWS, can be used without too much difficulty.

I am hoping that such a utility can detect the correct display/video driver,
download, install it and change the setting in Windows to make sure that the
new display/video driver is the default driver, with the result that
readable text will be displayed on the screen instead of the screen being
black.

Thank you in advance

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Kevin Hourigan <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Hello Shannon,

I wrote to the help line on the site, first I received an instruction to insure I pressed the confirmation button. Then I replied that it was not coming up and that I was using a screen reader. I was told that the issue was probably particular to my software, and was left to my own devices, so I wrote to the technical help address on the site,  and during our email exchange I offered to come into the branch laptop in  tow. Actually all I really needed was sighted assistance to report the account selection box that JAWS did not.

The best advice I could give after this is to use the insert control and L for list, T for table, B for button etc., And sadly, sighted assistance when you are stuck.

Cheers Kevin.

Can I separate the arrow keys from the number pad?

Hello,

I would like to know if I can separate the arrow keys from the number pad? I want the PC curser and the virtual pc curser to use the inverted T arrow keys and have the various JAWS curser, Invisible curser, and the Touch curser to use the number pad keys.

Can I do that and if so how do I do it?

Thanks

Re: Speeding up the JAWS starting time?

Tony
 

There are times when Windows is busy cleaning up some mess or finishing updates that take longer than expected.

 

My old machine was taking 4 minutes to jaws speech.  It was not a slow machine but had been running for two years without much in the way of cleanup.  I installed a SSD and the boot time dropped to24 seconds without making any other changes.

 

My new Xeon Win 10machine with a faster SSD and more RAM takes twice as long to boot.  So much for progress.

Hello Hermin:
 
I have already been to the particular driver download page for the Toshiba laptop. However, there are at least half a dozen display drivers listed for that particular laptop. Given that there are so many, which one do you choose because, if you download the rong one, you could cause software conflichs with the graphics/video adapter or worse.
 
Thank you for the tip anyway!

I am sure Toshiba’s site will have a service and download part where you can enter model numbers to get the latest software for your model.
