can't up date jaws until I solve navigational issue

I haven't Ben able to use any navigational keys in Jaws since I upgraded to windows 10 fall edition. Has anyone experienced this issue? Been using NVDA in the meantime. Thanks

I do not normally use PS, I only entered this thread to say I don't
experience the double echo issue that John Covici originally posted
about.

Hi, Soronel. When trying to use the power shell, you might try using NONE as

An easy way to change this is INSERT plus S. It will toggle between all,
highlighted and none.

Hi again, John,

What I am talking about would be the same as toggling speech for
the keyboard. It would not change anything else that
happens. For example, I type with words spoken after I press
space instead of hearing each character one at a time. It is
also possible to turn keyboard speech off, but I like to hear
what I am typing. The solution I suggested would allow you to
input something without it speaking which key is pressed, but
could allow the screen to speak what just showed up. This was
something I used to experience, pressing a key and having it
spoken as a keyboard press and then having it repeated as an item
written to the screen. The key still works as it was meant to,
but does not speak twice.

My experience says not to believe everything the VFO support person says.

I did not remove shared components or the user settings.

Perhaps others who have installed 2018 after having used the beta can chime in.

That is what is so strange, it says it is authorized but it gives the correct number for being out of beta but it says it is beta
it runs fine but there is some kind of glitch and BFO is even stumped right now.
It gives your correct serial number and the locking code and all but it says ILM beta after the version number.

Re: error when installing 2018

i don't think the shortcut keys will work when both versions of jaws were useing the same keys. they would be in conflict.
i used control alt j for one and shift alt j for the other.
you have to hold down the keys then j to use these keys.

when hitting enter on the Jaws 2018 shortcut on the desktop nothing

support and he had me try some different things and came to the
conclusion that Jaws 2018 wasn't really installed. He had me run the

I have removed the shortcut for Jaws 18 from my desktop.

Hi Van,

Thanks. This is what I needed. I also have word 2010, but my client has word 2016. I hope this works for her.

BTW, you can check by pressing Insert plus F to find out things such as Font Double spacing and so on. It will also tell you if things are centered Left or right justified.

Thanks again.

With options as to where to place the page number, top of page, bottom of page, etc.  For me, the second option down is to put the page number at the bottom of the page in the footer and it has a submenu allowing you to pick the style.   For my test, I selected the third or fourth one down that said something like ‘pg. 1”.  Hit enter on the choice you want.  When you hit enter, your cursor will be placed in the documents footer at the beginning of the line.  By default, the page number for this choice was at the left edge.  I supposed part of what you are choosing on the submenu is where you want the page number to be located, e.g., left, right, center, etc.  If you arrow beyond the page number, you can add a comma or hyphen and your name.  Hit Escape to exit out of the footer.  You can also use the standard Word shortcuts of Control L to left justify, Control  E to center and Control R to right justify.  Now, each time you add pages, the footer will automatically add the page number with your name. 

 

I admit that I am using my bit of vision to confirm that the page numbers are as I have told you and  I don’t know the best way for you to validate your work.  Maybe using the JAWS  cursor to read the page.

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.

When I installed 2018 it did not ask if I wanted to import settings from
Jaws 18.

will ask you if you want to migrate those settings.

I wish I could help, but I am also fairly new to Jaws having been a loyal Window-Eyes user for over 20 years.
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.

Richard, I'm new to Jaws, been using NVDA and Window eyes. I did set up
jaws and have been slowly learning. I made some changes to Jaws, is
there some folder that I'd copy over to have the same settings? If so,
how would you go about it? Thank You.

Jaws never replaces itself. It always adds another folder and desktop
icon for the new version so you can still use the prior version if you
find things that work better with that version.
That is something I wish more programs would do.
Uninstalling the beta if you are running it makes sense.

install over the one already installed? Thanks.

I'm new to jaws. What is the proper way to upgrade to this new release?
I went into Jaws help to check for upgrades and it said I was current.
Thanks for any info.

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.

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

 

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
