That is fine unless you have a lot of music or videos. My main OS drive is a 100GB partition that has all my software. all my media goes on a seperate 256GB SSD.
6GB of RAM is fine also. 8 is the best price/performance balance but 6 is fine. Actually anything over 8 is a waste of money unless you do serious CAD or editing of some kind.

With 4gb, you start to see a lot of swapping going on, but, with 6 or 8 and above, you get better performance.

I was given a HP lap top by a charitable group sponsored by the government. It has 6 Gigs of ram and a 250 G hard drive.  Is that enough to run JAWS 2018 as well as other related products?  The agent knew I was blind.  Perhaps the agent being sighted was not aware of the size of hard drive needed.  After all, he didn’t know Window Eyes had been discontinued. I don’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth however, fear the hard drive is not big enough to handle accessibility products.  It was suggested I just send the lap top back.

Hello. I used Quicken for several years. Although I was able to use it, I switched to Money Talks from APH. It’s more than adequate for managing checking and savings accounts. If you have questions, write me off list.

Hello to all.
Does anyone know of anyone writing some scrip's to make quicken more blind friendly with jaws?
Because currently the fields are blank and you have to memorize everything.
So, it would be nice if we could get JAWS 2018 to work with quicken so that one could keep up with one's checking account.
Very Thankfully yours,

Re: Outlook 2016 Address Field Issue

 

No, this is not an issue. However, on my Windows 7 PC’s I still can’t use Control+Shift+I to return to my default Inbox and in Excel if I dare to start a formula by typing the equals sign it crashes right away.

If, for example, I want to do a formula like =A1+A2, I have to first type A1+A2, then if I go back with F2 and edit the cell I can put an equals sign in front of it and tab and then the formula works. Alternatively I have to type out all formulas in Notepad and then paste them into Excel.

On my Windows 10 laptop this is not an issue.

This, by the way, is happening both with the latest update of Jaws 18 as well as Jaws 2018.

Hello, everyone.

 

This morning, I just discovered a major problem with Outlook 2016 when originating an e-mail.

 

When I start a new e-mail with control N, I can no longer type a contact address into the “to” field.  When I do this, I get kicked out of my new e-mail, and get placed back into my inbox.

 

Interestingly, I can go to my contacts list, and copy and paste the e-mail address into the to field with no problem.  I can also reply to e-mails with no problem.

 

Once again, the issue occurs when originating an e-mail and trying to access someone in my contacts list.

 

I am using Jaws 18, Outlook 2016 with Office 365, and Windows 7 here.

 

Has anyone recently experienced this issue, and if so, have you found a fix?

 

I am eligible to upgrade to Jaws 2018, and will do so when I get the chance.

 

However, in the meantime, I’d like to be able to quickly originate e-mails in the usual way if at all possible.

I know this by looking at the Running Applications List Box via
