Maybe you have accidentally gotten into "Tablet Mode". In the Windows 10 settings, type "tablet" in the search edit field and adjust your preferences if necessary. I guess that, while in tablet mode, such strange things can happen. I have set the tablet mode never to appear (neither at startup nor after unlocking).

Best regards,

How to stop JFW17 from Repeating Status Line in MSW2016

Dani Pagador
 

Hi, Everyone.
I'm trying to reformat a document in Word 2016 and am using Win10 and
JFW17. When I go to change a style, sometimes JFW repeats the status
line and doesn't stop. I have to save the document, get out of Word,
and go back in to get JFW to cooperate with me and keep reading the
document itself so I can keep working.

I've looked in the Quick Settings and can't find anything that could
point to a fix for this. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Dani

Hi!

When windows 7 was on the go, when you put it on to boot up, there used
to be a sort of jingle, but windows 10 doesn't have that.

I used to like that, then you could be sure your computer was actually
booted up!

Re: windows 10 and windows 7

 

Here is how I do it:

1. Press Jaws Key+F11 to bring up the system tray items
2. Find your speakers/volume, it may say "Speakers" followed by a sound volume in percent like 70%, it may also say "Realtec" or whatever your soundcard manufacturer is, but it's pretty obvious
3. Press enter on that, you now have a little submenu with things like Open Volume Mixer, Playback Devices, Recording Devices, Sounds and pissibly Volume Control Options. These are the items on my Windows 7 computer (I'm at work), but 'Windows 10 should be similar, just look for "Sounds" and press enter.
4. You are now probably on the "Windows Default" sound scheme, press tab until you find "Play Windows Startup Sound" and make sure it is checked.
5. Make sure you continue to tab after you check it until you get to OK and then press enter or spacebar.

Now if you also make sure Fast Startup is disabled (I posted the steps for this in my last email) you should get the Windows Startup sound. Of course if you have set Jaws to speak at the login screen you should also hear Jaws starting to speak, if you enable the startup sound it will be almost at the same time or right after the startup sound plays.

Regards,
Sieghard

The startup sound is not checked in Windows 10 by default. However, you also
have to disable fast startup for the sound to play reliably, here are the
steps:

Turn Off Win10 Fast Startup
1. Open Control Panel then select Power Options. This is presuming that
you're using the classic "Small Icons" view in Control Panel. If not,
navigate to the "View by" control and select "Small Icons," then navigate to
Power Options.
2. Activate the Choose what the power button does link on the left side of
the dialog.
3. In the dialog just opened, activate Change settings that are currently
unavailable link.
4. Scroll down to the Shutdown settings section.
5. Remove the check mark from the Turn on Fast Startup (Recommended)
checkbox.
6. Select the Save Changes Button.

First of all, you can do even more in Win10 than you could in Windows 7, but you have to know what to do.

Here is how you navigate the start area in Win10.I suppose when you've been used to something for so long, sometimes you don't like change!  {like me}

I find that as i'm getting older, it's harder to memorize things and keep them in that brain!
You said you had Windows 10 guides, i'm very interested in that.
The thing i'd like to know, is how to close down your computer.

Val.

Press the Windows key, and you are in a search box. Tab once, and you will hear mike. If you enter there, you can ask Cortana a question, just like asking SIRI.

If you tab past the mike, you are in a list. The power button is there, and your account button to open your Microsoft account. Tab again, and you are on your list of apps and programs. Now, you can down arrow through all of your programs. Tab past that, and you are on your app tiles. You can use all arrow keys to go from tile to tile, just like on a phone. Instead of all of that, though, you can just type the program or app you want to bring up in the search edit box.

For example, type:

Notepad in the search edit box, and you will hear Notepad as one of your choices. Just press enter, and Notepad will open. It is that simple to find a program and open it in the search area that is in Windows 7 as well. I have a lot of tutorials on using Windows 10, if you would like them. Windows 10 is different, but you can do everything you did in Windows 7, you just have to do it differently.

Hi,

i agree. Every Laptop does have a Fn Key for several functions which include the touchpad option most of the Time but all HP Laptops which i've been working with recently did not have the Option to disable the pad with one of the FN keys. They always had to disabled by double tap on a certain point on the touchpad. Do you know the Exact model of your Device?

Hi!

My laptop does have an Fn key.

I called the company i bought the computer from, and because he didn't have the manuel with him he's going to check it out, and called me in the morning.  He said that he's almost sure that there is a function key.

I also called the HP support line, before i spoke to the company I bought it from but the guy was extremely rude,because my friend [who has also got poor sight] gave me the wrong number. He told me that as i didn't have the correct information, he couldn't help, and i was using line space!

He also said, that i should have put my request online that is how they work before you can call them. He said that most people can find the answer they're looking for on site instead of calling them.

I have an Hp, and have been on to their site to try to find out the function keys to turn touchpad on and off, but have had no luck.

Hi Carol!

Thanks so much.

Having a real bad day with this little madam of a computer!

Could be in the middle of writing an email, then, suddenly, it will revert back to desktop.

Is this correct?

Hi Val,

I have not finished reading my email, so your question may have already been answered.  But, in case it was not, here is the easiest way to shut down your PC.  First, go to the desktop.
Press alt-F4
Find out where shutdown is on your PC.
Mine happens to be the next to last option, so I press the end key and up arrow one time. 
Press enter on shutdown and you are finished.

Hope this helps.

First of all, you can do even more in Win10 than you could in Windows 7, but you have to know what to do.

Here is how you navigate the start area in Win10.I suppose when you've been used to something for so long, sometimes you don't like change!  {like me}

The thing i'd like to know, is how to close down your computer.

Val.

Press the Windows key, and you are in a search box. Tab once, and you will hear mike. If you enter there, you can ask Cortana a question, just like asking SIRI.

If you tab past the mike, you are in a list. The power button is there, and your account button to open your Microsoft account. Tab again, and you are on your list of apps and programs. Now, you can down arrow through all of your programs. Tab past that, and you are on your app tiles. You can use all arrow keys to go from tile to tile, just like on a phone. Instead of all of that, though, you can just type the program or app you want to bring up in the search edit box.

For example, type:

Notepad in the search edit box, and you will hear Notepad as one of your choices. Just press enter, and Notepad will open. It is that simple to find a program and open it in the search area that is in Windows 7 as well. I have a lot of tutorials on using Windows 10, if you would like them. Windows 10 is different, but you can do everything you did in Windows 7, you just have to do it differently.

Re: Substitute punctuation marks with sounds

Robert Logue
 

Their is a sounds folder in your Jaws user settings folder.

I just checked but there is nothing in mine. I guess that would be where custom sounds you assign would be saved?


You can find a lot of things with the Jaws utility, Explore utility folder.

Right, but if one wanted to use a custom sound, it would be necessary to know where the folder is, unless there isn't one and they are simple part of the program.

Richard, the sounds may be unique to JAWS because most, if not all, come
from the VFO employees and are probably used in particular features of
JAWS). but they're plain old wav files (nothing special).

I just took a look at this. Quite interesting. You hit add, then tab
over to the list of sounds.

I'm curious, where do those sound files reside?

Are they part of the Windows sounds, or unique to Jaws?

Hello all,


Is there a way to substitute punctuation marks with custom sounds? I am
a developer and often times I have to listen to tongue twisters of
punctuation marks, like "left bracket right brace left paren ..." I wish
to replace all these parens and brackets with sounds. Is there a way to
do so in Jaws?

JAWS & Microsoft Silverlight Updates

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Running Windows 7 Pro, IE11, & Jaws 16 thru J2018.  I do not have Microsoft Silverlight installed, but I'm receiving updates for it that I have to hide whenever I get the notification.  Does anyone have any tips on how I can stop receiving the Silverlight updates?  Or, even though Silverlight is not installed, is there a setting in IE11 that can be changed to stop Silverlight from updating?  Thanks much.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.
