Re: [Bulk] Optimal Settings for Jaws on a Windows 7 Computer?

Brandon Keith Biggs <brandonboy13@...>
 

Hello,
I have disabled the touchpad and all touch things on my computer. I have set everything I could find to work best with Jaws.
I could not find how to make the control panel Classic view. What I mean by Classic view is Icons instead of links. In every version up to windows 7 (including Vista) there is a setting you can toggle that will make Control Panel Icons in rows that you can arrow through. With this windows 7 I'm forced to hit tab to navigate through a long list of links. This is not effective in any shape or form.
I perhaps think that there might be a Windows 7 64 bit and Windows 7 32 bit, but on my CD I saw no double installation. I did see a difference on the website. Right after I sent this email I Installed the Jaws 11 off FS's Website and restarted my computer a multitude of times. Once everything looked to be in order I opened up IE and Jaws promptly Crashed. My computer is restarting as I'm typing.

I called FS this morning to ask them to give me another activation and I asked them if there was anything I needed to know to make Jaws work on a Windows 7 computer as on other versions of windows there are a few things you need to do to make Jaws run optimally. I was told that Jaws ran on Windows 7 no problem.

Needless to say this is the most difficulty in installing Jaws I've ever had...
If it is truly necessary, I can bug DOR to buy me Jaws 13, but I was waiting to do that till the Summer when I will have lots of free time to be on the phone.
Thank you,

Brandon Keith Biggs

Brandon,

Forget about Control Panel in Classic View. There are many once-familiar
dialogs that will look different from XP.

Don't think Home vs. Professional has anything to do with it, unless you
have a non-professional version of JAWS on a professional operating system.

Have no idea about your line breaks, except that you might want to make sure
you have IE maximized.

What do you mean by "out of the box" with regard to Freedom Scientific?

I didn't have to fiddle with anything when I got my Windows 7 machine and
JAWS 12 installed.

Do you perhaps have a touchpad or a touch stick that's getting in your way
when you're working? I turned both mine off to prevent accidental movement
of the cursor.

You have JAWS 11 and I'm not sure that JAWS 11 has all the bugs worked out
with regard Windows Live Mail.

Hello,
I just got a Windows 7 computer and I'm having some difficulties finding the
optimal settings to set my computer at.
I was told by FS that it came out of the box perfectly configured. I know
this is wrong because on webpages I see 10 line breaks where there should
only be 1 or 2, I'm not hearing characters when I erase them in some text
boxes, when I erase Jaws says the character that's ahead and not the one
it's supposed to be erasing, while I'm typing this message in Windows Live
Mail my Jaws curser is jumping to the desktop at random times, On the HP
solution center everything is unlabeled, Jaws is not reading some of the
notification windows that pop up, the F keys don't work except in key
combinations, I can't seem to get the Control Panel in Classic view, Jaws
doesn't seem to want to start up when I turn on the computer. These are what
I've found after the second hour with this darn computer!
I'm using Jaws 11 with Windows 7, an HP computer.
Perhaps the problem is that the CD I installed is home and not professional.
Is there a way to tell?
So far it looks like people saying Windows 7 being better is all a myth and
I should just
go back to my Vista machine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you,

Re: [Bulk] [Bulk] [Bulk] Outlook 2007

Here's what you should do:

Start with Outlook closed

Windows + r to open the run dialog
Type Outlook /resetnavpane

This resets all the panes to their default positions and sizes.

Well, nothing seems to help. I have even unloaded the current release of
JAWS and tried version 12 and 11 with no success. I have customized the
view when I originally started using Outlook 2007, so I thought maybe I
would return to the default settings and start over. Is there an easy way
to simply restore Outlook to its original look? Please let me know as I
have exhausted all other means of correcting my problem.

I wonder if you just have a stuck key. I don't mean mechanically stuck but
that it is being detected as held down in code.

Try repeatedly tapping each pair of shift, control, alt, and windows keys
several times rapidly to see if one of them was "stuck". See if you get
control back .

I can see the curser blinking but it will not let me enter text. For
example if I start typing with the key stroke shift plus t for a capital
letter, it will say not in a table. I have to open up Word, type in what I

I am encountering a really strange problem using Outlook 2007 with the
latest version of JFW 13. I believe I accidentally hit a key stroke that
somewhat changed the look of the screen. I have a little residual vision so
I can see that something blinked a bit or changed. Anyway, now when I open
a message, JAWS will not read the message body unless I use the JAWS curser.
Also, if I attempt to write a new email, when I tab to the message body,
JAWS says something like, "this option is not available." I've been racking
my brains but can't for the life of me figure what is going on. Anyone have
any ideas on what I can look to change?

Re: [Bulk] [Bulk] May be off topic

Ann Byrne
 

I would rename them to something I can recognize. I have inadvertently hit keys that caused some of my books to be called things like 's.zip', which tells me nothing. If I knew what it was supposed to be, I would rename the thing in a minute. I know how it happened, of course--hitting alt-s for save at the wrong time--but that doesn't give me te name of the book.

It doesn't change a file's content to rename it; just clarifies what it is. You need to be sure to leave the extension unchanged, though.

Re: IE9

You may find that Microsoft is going to update Internet Explorer from whatever you had to I E 9 unless you prohibit automatic updates.
So if you uninstall IE9, you'll what to set your update from automatic to something like "ask me if I want to install".
