I had uninstalled the beta before installing this new version.

When I check the Help, About, I do not have the word beta.

Hello everyone,

I just got off the phone with VO tech support and anyone that updated there Jaws 2018 out of beta and downloaded and installed the regular

version today you might want to go in to your jaws settings and check what it says in the about box and you might find the same thing I did.

Mine said jaws 2018 ILM beta 2018171036. I just got off the phone and tech support doesn’t know how to fix it right now.

They even had me remove my jaws authorization and re authorize it and that still didn’t fix it.

I just thought I would post this just incase any one else had this problem.Jesus dyed for us, why can't we live for him?

Re: Problems with Excel

 

I have a few issues with Excel on my Windows 7 desktops, but don’t seem to have these on my Windows 10 laptop. Certainly no sluggishness, I would definitely report to FS and maybe call Microsoft Accessibiliuty to see if they have any suggestions. Make sure your Office 2016 is up to date and, if you can, upgrade to Jaws 2018 which should also help.

Subject: Problems with Excel

 

Hello,

 

This is my first time writing to this group.  I have been using JAWS for over 20 years.  I recently went into Windows 10 and have the latest version of JAWS 18 running.  I am using MS Office 2016.  I have worked through most of the things that are different from Windows 7 and Office 2010.  However, in the past month I have come across a real problem in excel.  I am having problems with JAWS either becoming so delayed that I wait more than 30 seconds when I try to arrow to the next cell or sometimes JAWS just turns itself off.  When I initially open the excel program everything seems to work fine but after about three to 5 minutes this problem starts.  I am working in spreadsheets I have had for several years.  I am not sure if this is part of the problem or not. 

 

Any suggestions on what I can do to fix this problem are greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

It didn't ask me either, but one keystroke change I made carried over, so I think all will be fine.
I changed the command for time from insert+f12 to Insert+shift+t.

Insert+f12 always struck me as a really stupid keystroke.

Re: Problem trying to repair Jaws 18 before upgrading to V 2018

 

Why not just install Jaws 2018, I would say at this point to set it up from scratch and not merge your settings when asked just so you get the best possible experience which is not effected by possibly some problem in your user settings.

Jaws 2018 does not require you to repair Jaws 18, in fact you could completely uninstall Jaws 18 and it would make no difference to Jaws 2018.

Sieghard

Hello list,

So, I’ve been dealing with this issue since Jaws 18 was put out on 9/26/17. Along with the Outlook address thing that later got fixed, I was having trouble when replying or forwarding message in Outlook. Arrowing down was not possible. Jaws would behave as though I was at the bottom of the screen. Even if I arrowed up once and then tried going back down to the line I was previously at, I’d encounter that same barrier. Navigating the message body of text with the read by paragraph or sentence commands, Jaws worked as always. It was just the read/navigate by line that was giving me problems.

VFO tech support emailed me instructing that I should try doing a Jaws repair. Do the copy path from my JFW .exe file and add the / type repair at the end in the run dialog box.

As I saw that Jaws 2018 came out today, I figured I’d try to get this resolved. I for one reason or another hadn’t had the chance to go through with the repair, but figured I should try addressing it before upgrading to JFW 2018.

In any event, I went through the repair process earlier today and along with all the other typical Jaws chatter when doing an installation (I was using a JFW.exe file from October that addressed the Outlook issue), I heard Jaws say something about a sentinel system driver not being copied. By the end of the process I then got the following error message:

The JAWS setup package could not install the required component

JAWSRepair.  The process will now exit.

OK

I already wrote VFO back about this, but as it’s Jaws 2018 release day, I don’t expect a follow up any time soon as I’m sure they’ll be dealing with all sorts of stuff related to that.

Anyone have an idea on what this is or how to fix it?

Thanks,

Cristobal

not sure on what may have happened,
however, I would try,

1, just enter on the executable, and then choose repair, and see if that
works, or, perhaps, just do a uninstall, and try reinstalling.
the jaws, sentinel system driver should already be installed. perhaps this

the end in the run dialog box.

As I saw that Jaws 2018 came out today, I figured I’d try to get this
resolved. I for one reason or another hadn’t had the chance to go through
with the repair, but figured I should try addressing it before upgrading to
JFW 2018.

In any event, I went through the repair process earlier today and along with
all the other typical Jaws chatter when doing an installation (I was using a
JFW.exe file from October that addressed the Outlook issue), I heard Jaws
say something about a sentinel system driver not being copied. By the end of
the process I then got the following error message:

The JAWS setup package could not install the required component

JAWSRepair. The process will now exit.

OK

I already wrote VFO back about this, but as it’s Jaws 2018 release day, I
don’t expect a follow up any time soon as I’m sure they’ll be dealing with
all sorts of stuff related to that.

Anyone have an idea on what this is or how to fix it?

Thanks,

Cristobal

But, since Jaws installs to a new folder I think it also offers to import your settings from the previous version, so you might be OK.
But maybe one of the Jaws users with lots of experience will chime in with a more solid answer.

Uninstalling the beta if you are running it makes sense.

Thanks.

Thank you. This is exactly what I am looking for. Wouldn't I need to route the Jaws cursor before clicking? My Jaws cursor does not always follow my PC cursor.

Carol,

Not if you are on a link, because the mouse tends to follow links in my experience, but it wouldn't hurt to route the cursor anyway.

All the best

Hi,

OK, here's a thought.

Find the word you want, as usual with JAWS find.

The mouse will actually be placed on that word, especially if it is a link.

Now to move right slightly, press Alt-Shift-Right arrow, this will move the physical mouse three pixels by default. I believe you can change this default in settings.

Then left click in the same way you did with WE.

All the best
Steve

Hi Steve,

I was the original poster for this topic. Yes, this would be for a web site.

With Window-Eyes, my brother could go to the site he needed and search for a specific word. He could then use the WE mouse keys and navigate up a certain number of pixels and then move slightly to the right, where he could then click on an upload button that was not seen by Window-Eyes. Here is an example:

The letter "a" in the word "name" is at position 200:200.
The button to upload is at position 205:185.
There is no text or graphic that is available to click on. To click
the button, he finds the a in name and then moves his mouse pointer up
from
200 to 185 by pressing the move up command three times and then moves to the right by pressing the move right command one time. He is then on the upload button and can use his mouse click key to press the button.

He never got to a place in Window-Eyes where he could set up a
placemarker, and he is only just getting started with Jaws. His PC is
a
Win10 desktop. How can one move by pixels in Jaws? Thank you.

Carol

Place markers only work on the web, don't they?

The Snowman's Hotspot Clicker script would be better for this.

I come late to this discussion but...
When your Brother finally gets this particular area found with the mouse can he then use the place marker functions of JAWS to get there all the time?
If I understood the functions of this ability it can be website specific and he can just use the placemarker list to go directly to that point.
I just thought it was worth a suggestion.
Anyone with more experience with the placemarkers should absolutely jump in here and correct my understanding.
