Re: overlay windows 0

I've been told that the only way Jaws can read in this situation is if the server that runs this program also has Jaws installed and the two link.
I've faced this issue at work with two other business partners for Workforce and Taleo hiring software and they weren't willing to install Jaws on their systems in fear of what it may do to their servers functionality
since they are shared systems.
I share your frustration.
The cursors seem to not move anywhere on the screen no matter how you move them.
Sorry to share bad news,

Mike:

 

I use the latest build of Jaws 18 (version 18.0.4104) with Windows 7 here, and have had no major issues.

 

So, I’d say go ahead and install Jaws 18 on your Windows 7 machine, and continue to enjoy using Windows 7 until you feel the need to upgrade to Windows 10.

 

Like you, I realize that someday I’ll need to update to Windows 10, but I’m reluctant to do this right now because windows 7 works so well for he at this time.

Howdy all,

I recently purchased a copy of J 18.0 at the NFB National Convention in Orlando Florida.

 

I’m currently running Windows 7, IE 11.0 with J 16.0.

My question, do you think J 18.0 will be OK with running with W 7?

 

I know I should probably update up to Windows 10, but I guess you could say I’m a bit scared to. I’ve heard a few scary stories about people trying to deal with J 18.0 with W 10?

 

So perhaps I should just download my new version of J 18.0, but don’t install it yet? Or do you think I can install it on my W 7?

 

Please let me know your thoughts.

 

 

Thanks much!......Mike

Chrome works very well with Jaws for the most part. It is much faster than IE and I prefer it over Firefox for every-day use.
One thing which does not work well with Crhome is to create PDF documents from web pages using the print function and virtual PDF printers such as the "Microsoft Print to PDF" printer which is available in Windows 10 or in Windows 7 I use Nuance Power PDF. If you use one of these to create a PPDF from IE oir Firefox the resulting PDF is accessible and Jaws can read it. If you do the same thing from Chrome the PDF is an image and only accessible by using Convenient OCR.
The other issue I found is that for me on a few websites Chrome does not read some content which IE and Firefox reads. For example, if I log into my Mastercard account and look at my transaction history, Chrome will read the column headings like transaction date, posting date, description and the amount, but it then skips right over the actual transactions which visually are on the screen and which IE and Firefox has no problems reading and which it does so beautrifully using table navigation commands..
Pretty much everything else Chrome does very nicely and, as I said, very quickly and a few websites definitely work much better with Chrome than they do with IE.
I think that currently browsers are like a hammer or a saw for a carpenter, you have a few different ones in your toolbox and while you may have a favourite there are situations where another one is better.
Since IE is on all Windows computers anyways you just have to install Chrome and, if you want, Firefox, try them out and set whichever one you like best as your default and then use the others as needed. They won't interfere with each other so it definitely doesn't hurt to have them available.
If you use Windows 10 you also have Edge on your computer and if you are a Jaws user you will be able to try it out fairly soon, if you also use NVDA you can already use it although I think for most of us Chrome or IE is still much more familiar.

Re: Question about J 18.0

 

You can definitely install it, I still use Windows 7 on 5 desktop PC's at my retail store and it works just fine.

Also, if you do want to upgrade to Windows 10 you'd be ready for it, I would definitely recommend it as I find Windows 10 much better than Windows 7. The start menu is a bit different and you have to tweek a few things such as changing your default web browser to be something other than Edge, but apart from that Windows 10 is very nice.

I hope you purchased an an SMA with this so that you are entitle to the next two major Jaws releases, apparently instead of Jaws 19 the naming cheme will change as of this fall and what would be Jaws 19 will be called Jaws 2018 and it will go by year from then on.

The other thing to keep in mind, in the time since I started using
jaws narrator has improved a great deal .Narrator is now capable
enough to download the jaws installer off the web and run that rather
than needing any physical media at all (except perhaps the
authorization CD, which I still use rather than keeping that as text
somewhere). When I started using jaws it was pretty much all narrator
could handle just to browse to the setup file on the installation
disc.

Hi listers:



I just obtained JAWS through my Voc Rehab office and was a little
surprised
by the JAWS package.



They used to package with an instructional CD on how to install JAWS
(which
is still downloadable from the Web site, complete with cassette
tone-indexing marks). In the package, I found a bifold sleve containing
the
Program DVD and the Authorization CD, a couple Braille sheets about the
SMA,
a large print document (which I assume is the quick reference), and a
Braille quick reference booklet. I did not find any instructions on
installing JAWS, unless it was in the large print document I couldn’t
read.
Of course, I am quite familiar with such procedures myself.



I guess, by now, they figure anyone who orders it knows how to install it
and doesn’t need any help. Or, are they falling down on the job?



Any thoughts.

Howdy all,

I recently purchased a copy of J 18.0 at the NFB National Convention in
Orlando Florida.



I'm currently running Windows 7, IE 11.0 with J 16.0.

My question, do you think J 18.0 will be OK with running with W 7?



I know I should probably update up to Windows 10, but I guess you could say
I'm a bit scared to. I've heard a few scary stories about people trying to
deal with J 18.0 with W 10?



So perhaps I should just download my new version of J 18.0, but don't
install it yet? Or do you think I can install it on my W 7?



Please let me know your thoughts.





Thanks much!......Mike
