Yes, this is a very nice tool. I did not know it existed. I have still not gotten through allof the training material.

Go to JAWS, alt=+h for help. You will be on the training folder. Enter on that and follow the links to text analyzer.

Hello.

Does anyone know where I can find either a podcast demo or a tutorial on the Text Analyzer feature of Jaws?

I became aware of this recently, and am sure it could be quite useful.

I am currently using the latest build of Jaws 2018, and I know that text analyzer currently doesn't work with it; but I do have earlier versions of Jaws to use in the meantime.

Thanks as always!

Hi Audrey!

Quite agree about windows coming on straight away. I'm on the latest version of Jaws and windows 10.

I contacted the Microsoft disability desk on Monday, and I must say, she gave my computer a good clean up. She tried switching it on then off, and said how slow it was.

She said there was nothing actually wrong with the settings, but said that my Eset Nov32 antivirus could be slowing things down. I have now removed that, and hope that defender has come on itself. We'll have to see if it boots up any quicker! If it doesn't, then i don't know what else i can do.

I have also been getting a lot of error reports, and have ticked the box to let Freedom Scientific know.

Yes, you’re completely right. I’m running adobe dc 2018 pro and it is just announcing the percentages. I guess I really didn’t pay attention to the change. It is doing the same for me and it is working fine.

Not sure I am explaining well.

Hi Joe,

 

That percentage count is the amount of processed pages by adobe before opening the pdf file. The bigger the file the longer the wait. I have a JQuery tutorial file that is over 500pages long and that takes a while. I usually start it and move on to something else.

Good Afternoon Folks

 

I am running JAWS 2018 with last weeks update with Windows 10. Has anyone experienced when Adobe is scanning the document for reading that it is reading the pages as a percentage? I was generating a billing document and this was a 400 plus page document and it kept reading the pages as a percentage rather than the page number. Just curious as today is the first day that I have opened a pdf since I updated JAWS.

 

Now to my question which is related . When I print a particular page from the document after the page prints Adobe rescans the document  for reading. Is there a way to not have it do that ? Or is it necessary? I had about 6 pages to print from this document and it wanted to rescan each time and finally just got sighted assistance which is not always readily available.

 

Thanks

https://www.dropbox.com/s/r8c9o2it9mupnfm/anyburn.zip?dl=0

I really like the program and find it much easier for me to use than other programs. Once you have added files, you will see a burn button when tabbing. It does not show up without anything in the file list. One last thing, if you use the feature where the files are verified, it will take much longer to burn. I believe the ratio is something like 5 minutes or less to burn without to about 20 minutes to burn and verify. Enjoy.

Re: computer slow just after logging in

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, Val. I sent this one out before, but didn't see it return to me from the JFW list. So I'm not sure it ever went out.
You go into the System Tray, click on Eset, and tab around until it says Pause Protection. Press ENTER on Pause Protection. Tab until you see a box that you can use to select an amount of time.Then use the combo box to select an amount of time for it to be turned off. I'd select maybe ten minutes. Then tab to OK or Apply and close Eset. Once it is turned off, then you can restart your computer and see if things are faster with Eset turned off. If not, Eset will turn itself back on after the specified amount of time you selected when you turned it off. That's all there is to it.

Got my nephew here at the moment, and he was telling me that he

recently read an article giving windows defender very poor reviews!

this is just one of many web pages.

windows defender is not complete. it does not support any non
microsoft products.
there is no protection if you are useing firefox or chrom or third
party email clients at all unless they are made by microsoft.
from this web site it says most other free anti virus programs do a
better job too.

She did check that, but windows defender wasn't on.

On the other hand there is no good reason to pay for anti virus
software since Microsoft comes with very good free anti virus
protections in the form of Windows Defender. I assume the person from
the Disability Help Desk would have checked this, but make sure you
don't have both Microsoft Defender and Eset NOD32 running since this
could definitely cause problems.

I doubt that NOD32 would be slowing down your computer significantly.
I use the same product, and it isn't affecting my speed after logon.

Hi Everyone!
Don't know if you remember, I was on about my computer being very
slow after logging into windows startup? I contacted the microsoft
disability desk yesterday, and got a very helpful lady who gave my pc
a right going over!
She thinks it could be my Eset Nov32 antivirus that could be slowing
things down, could this be the case?
She did clean my computer up a good bit, and removed things which she
said i didn't really need.
Val.
