Tab to the don't remind me button and check it. Granted, I am only working from short-term memory, but it is a box that needs to be checked.

Hi, Richard. The problem with muting JAWS with INSERT plus SPACE, then S is that each time you start the program, you will need to perform these steps again and again, each time you start the program.

 

If you never want JAWS to voice during a particular program, do the following:

 

1. Open the program in which you want to mute JAWS.

2. Press JAWS key plus the number 6 on the numbers row to open the Settings Center.

3. In the search box, type Sleep.

4. This will bring up two results:

Enable Braille Sleep Mode

and

Sleep Mode Disable.

You view these options by first tabbing, then using the up and down arrows.

5. Select Sleep ModeDisable by pressing ENTER on that option.

6. Space until it says, Sleep mode enable.

7. Tab to Apply and press ENTER.

 

Now, every time you start the program in which you never want JAWS speech, you won’t need to perform the INSERT plus Space, then S keystroke.

Hi Richard,
 
Try the following:
1. Open the program you would like Jaws to be muted in when using.
2. Press Insert + 6, to open the Settings Center & make sure Jaws reports Jaws Settings Center Application / program name.  If you get the Add New Configuration dialogue, tab to okay & press the spacebar to add this application / program to the Settings Center.
3. Type, sleep, into the search box & press enter or, arrow down to Miscellaneous & press the right arrow key to open Miscellaneous.
4. Arrow down 1 time to Sleep Mode, disabled, Press the spacebar until Jaws reports, Sleep Mode enable & unload the synthesizer.
5. Tab to apply, press the spacebar, tab to okay, press the spacebar to save your changes & close the Settings Center.
 
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Subject: updating your computer



Hi.

Okay here are the steps to do this.

Assuming you have windows 10, but this will work for windows 8.1 and windows 7.

For windows 10,

1. Press the windows and I key which will get you to the settings app.

2. Press the end key on your keyboard, and this will take you to update and security.

3. If you are using jaws 2018, you can use the shift insert ; to turn on touch cursur if needed.

4. Then tab to the check for updates or if it says the list of the update.

5. Tab to the button says download.

6. Use the jaws touch and then see what progress downloading. It will then give you speech for jaws, until it reboots.

7. Use windows control enter to turn on windows narrator when you hear your hard disk spin up and then it will reboot several times. This took me about 5 hours and was able to turn on the scan option in narrator, for the fall update, and use the caps lock left and right arrow keys.

8. To turn on scan mode, use the caps lock and space and will say scan mode on. Then it will say percentage and updating.

9. Then the final reboot, will say that it is updating 100 %, then will reboot, and then go to the windows login screen.

10. Enter your password or pin to login.

11. Then you will hear jaws come up and the desktop.

Hope that helps. Did that on Tuesday, and about 5 pm, started at about 12:30 pm, and it fixed my windows corrupted updates issue. And then was able to get other updates like the updates.

Hope that helps.
