Re: Problems With Google Chrome

It's working well for me (JAWS 2018, 64-bit Windows 10 system). Could you check what version of Chrome you have installed and whether it was updated recently? On Windows 10, you'll find the latter details under Apps and Features, but I can't remember where it is on Windows 7.

You could also try uninstalling Chrome, then re-installing it. Another option would be to find its configuration files and delete them. In addition, scan your system for viruses just in case that's the issue.

I'm also running Firefox ESR.

Subject: Problems With Google Chrome

Hi good people:
I am having a very odd problem with my google chrome browser.
Each time I attempt to open a site, the browser crashes. Before now, I was having problems with opening a link in a new window, that is through an Email or another web page.
But the problem has now worssened. i cannot do anything with the browser right now.
I've tried out using the chrome cleaner, which I downloaded, but it hasn't worked.
I attempted doing a re-set of the settings, when I could, but it didn't change anything.
Please has anyone ever had this problem? if you have, how did you get around the issue.
I started experiencing this problem when I installed the extended support release for firefox. But I don't believe this could have been the cause of this problem.
I use windows 7 32 bit: JAWS 16.
Looking forward to reading from anyone.
I am Ibrahim.

Hi,

Did VFO ever fix the issue that prevented users from activating their copy of JAWS?

 

For months now, I couldn’t activate jaws 2018.

I was essentially stuck in 40-minute mode.

Not a recommendation in that I haven't read it myself, but Cathy Anne Murtha, who trades as the Access Technology Institute, does Office manuals aimed at screen reader users and I've heard good feedback about them in general.

Hi all,

I’m running Windows 10 on my laptop with JAWS 2018.  I have it set to require a password to login.  If I leave my computer and come back later to type in my password, I hear a sound effect kind of like an ascending tone on a slide whistle and a voice says “Touch keyboard”.  I also notice that the voice I’m hearing on parts of the login screen are different from the normal voice I use.  All reverts to normal as I am loaded into my user profile of Windows.

 

What does JAWS mean by “Touch keyboard” and the sound effect?   Any idea why the voice changes?  Robin

Re: Pearl camera

Dave...
 

Don and all,

Using JAWS 2018 latest build, I just gave my Pearl camera a trial run. Quite
impressive, and yes it may signal the end of any future Openbook support.
That is somewhat unfortunate, as Openbook has a very rich set of features in
settings and configurations. I'll keep my Openbook 8 and 9 copies for as
long as they run on Windows.

However that aside, OCR using the Pearl camera or a connected flatbed does
offer a very convenient way to scan physical document on demand without
needing Openbook.

Also note that it is now possible to recognize many document types right
from the file listing in Windows Explorer, which to me, is a much more
significant improvement in the Convenient OCR application.

But again, I don't see anywhere that the Pearl camera can be used with other
mainstream applications as an input device. Therein lies my continuing
criticism.

Re: Pearl camera

Don,

Yes, I see that now. However, more to my point, is that the Pearl camera
still cannot be used with other scanning applications, as in the case of
Epson or other flatbed scanner hardware. That's where the real value of the
Pearl camera would shine. VFO seems to want to keep that piece of hardware
proprietary to their own software -- kind of an Apple paradigm.

The Email I received offering the Pearl for $295 was for all Jaws 2018
and 2018 fusion customers and said the pearl would work with Jaws 2018.
I see it that FS has incorporated part of Open Book into Jaws 2018 and
Open Book is on its way out. Of course Open Book hasn't been updated
for years.

Anyone got any experience with using the Pearl Camera versus a flat bed
scanner for use with Jaws 2018? Just got the notice that the Pearl
camera is on sale for users of Jaws 2018. Is the Pearl easier to use?
Does it produce better scanning results over a flat bed scanner?
Thanks

I would give VFO/FS a ring and ask them to be sure.

with an SMA, you are basically prepaying to be allowed to upgrade for
free when the upgrade becomes available. for example, you start with
version 2018 and when 2019 comes out, you can upgrade as opposed to
having to pay a bit more to upgrade to version 2019.

Hi Alton,

 

Not a recommendation in that I haven't read it myself, but Cathy Anne Murtha, who trades as the Access Technology Institute, does Office manuals aimed at screen reader users and I've heard good feedback about them in general.

 

There is one on Word 2016 with JAWS. I don’t know which version of JAWS is used, but the link below leads to a table of contents which details the functionality covered.

Good morning,

Can anyone recommend a really good, comprehensive tutorial for using Microsoft Word 2016 with JAWS 18?

Something that deals with beginner and advanced functionality, and everything in between, as well as keyboard shortcuts?

Thanks for any feedback you can provide.

Thank you.  I will definitely check it out.

Hi Christi,

 

I've just answered the same question for another person on the list with a link to a full guide.

 

Additionally, if you want to find out more about the ribbon, a good starting point might be the link below. It goes to an explanation of the ribbon as used in File Explorer on Windows 8, but I think the navigation is the same, or at least similar, for Word 2016.

Does anyone know if there are any good tutorials available for using JAWS 18 and Word 2016?  I am a medical transcriptionist and just recently upgraded to these two programs.  I am finding it very difficult to navigate the ribbon menus in Word 2016.

 

Thanks for any help you can give.

normally, you simply go to the Jaws download page and download the latest version and install it.
You might check with your vendor.

HTH,

Yes, it is supposed to work with Jaws 2018 Convenient OCR.
It says that both in the 2018 what's new I think as well as the email advertising the sale.
