I have a Toshiba Satelite lap top and I shut off my monitor via the power
settings, it turns automatically when I raise my lid.

I have a Dell laptop and it has no way to turn off the monitor unless I hook
it to an external monitor.
But I can turn the brightness down very low to save battery life. This is
done by holding down the Function Key and pressing the down arrow.
If I need my wife to bail me out of trouble, I hold down the Function Key
and press the up arrow to restore the brightness.

My wife has a Sony Laptop and it has a switch to turn off the monitor, and
she does not need this feature.

What I would like to see is a feature to turn off the mouse.

Hello,
That works marvelously! It's not the same, but the small icons make things
so much easier to navigate!
I think it was the fact that I had a 32 bit Jaws on a 64 bit computer that
was giving me all the big problems.
Does anyone know if there is a way to disable the mute button on Windows 7?
For some reason they have a mute button up on the top of the keyboard, but
they don't have a button to turn off the monitor. That is just strange...
Thanks,

One thing you can do with the CTRL panel once you are in it Is navigate to
the search with CTRL E, tab once until you hear category button and press
space bar. Once the context menu is up arrow up or down and enter on large
icons or small icons.
Then you can just use letter navigation from there to get to the various
different items in the CTRL panel instead of tabbing around.
If this isn't what you are referring to with the "classic view" of the CTRL
panel I will just show myself the door lol.

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,

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,

Settings Center is only Jaws 12 and 13. But I did go to Configuration Manager and turn off balloon tips, tooltips, and smart help messages, but no luck.

Hi Peter
I was not able to find a disable choice. If I get desperate, I could choose

If I choose the unstall option, would I then be given the disable option?

This is a Dell and it may be the way they set the driver.

I can go to the Control Panel and to Mouse and turn it off, but Windows 7

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.

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


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] Optimal Settings for Jaws on a Windows 7 Computer?

Brandon Keith Biggs <brandonboy13@...>
 

Hello,
Atm I want to know how to remove the aliases that the buttons are set to.
For example, alt doesn't work, f10 is volume up, f9 is volume down and jaws doesn't say 'f10 or f9' when I press them. Is this sticky Keys?
Thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs

Hi, you will be able to disabled the mouse using Device Manager. Just type
in device manager on the start menu. Once it's up tab then go down the list
to mice and other pointing devices and expand it. Then go to the mice
devices and press the applications key. Then go to disable. Note that will
disable the mouse but won't uninstall it. Don't tick the box if it's present
offering to uninstall the driver though as that will delete the driver.

I have a Dell laptop and it has no way to turn off the monitor unless I hook
it to an external monitor.
But I can turn the brightness down very low to save battery life. This is
done by holding down the Function Key and pressing the down arrow.
If I need my wife to bail me out of trouble, I hold down the Function Key
and press the up arrow to restore the brightness.

My wife has a Sony Laptop and it has a switch to turn off the monitor, and
she does not need this feature.

What I would like to see is a feature to turn off the mouse.

I think it was the fact that I had a 32 bit Jaws on a 64 bit computer that

Does anyone know if there is a way to disable the mute button on Windows 7?
For some reason they have a mute button up on the top of the keyboard, but
they don't have a button to turn off the monitor. That is just strange...

One thing you can do with the CTRL panel once you are in it Is navigate to
the search with CTRL E, tab once until you hear category button and press
space bar. Once the context menu is up arrow up or down and enter on large
icons or small icons.
Then you can just use letter navigation from there to get to the various
different items in the CTRL panel instead of tabbing around.
If this isn't what you are referring to with the "classic view" of the CTRL
panel I will just show myself the door lol.

Computer?


Hello,
That works marvelously! It's not the same, but the small icons make things
so much easier to navigate!
I think it was the fact that I had a 32 bit Jaws on a 64 bit computer that
was giving me all the big problems.
Does anyone know if there is a way to disable the mute button on Windows 7?
For some reason they have a mute button up on the top of the keyboard, but
they don't have a button to turn off the monitor. That is just strange...
Thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs

One thing you can do with the CTRL panel once you are in it Is navigate to
the search with CTRL E, tab once until you hear category button and press
space bar. Once the context menu is up arrow up or down and enter on large
icons or small icons.
Then you can just use letter navigation from there to get to the various
different items in the CTRL panel instead of tabbing around.
If this isn't what you are referring to with the "classic view" of the CTRL
panel I will just show myself the door lol.

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

You have JAWS 11 and I'm not sure that JAWS 11 has all the bugs worked out

Different for different Dell models.

My D630 had no way to turn off both touchpad and touchstick except BIOS.

My E6540 uses Fn + F5 to do this.

On my Dell immediately to the right of the f12 key is a key to toggle
the touchpad off and on. On my student's Dell laptop you toggle the
touchpad off and on with FN-key plus f3. So I'm guessing it's there
on yours too, easily useable, if you can just find it. (lol)

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

John ESherrer
 

I have a Dell laptop and it has no way to turn off the monitor unless I hook
it to an external monitor.
But I can turn the brightness down very low to save battery life. This is
done by holding down the Function Key and pressing the down arrow.
If I need my wife to bail me out of trouble, I hold down the Function Key
and press the up arrow to restore the brightness.

My wife has a Sony Laptop and it has a switch to turn off the monitor, and
she does not need this feature.

What I would like to see is a feature to turn off the mouse.

Yes, the Qube is a great program. However, there isn't any key command for approving or denying people who request to follow your twitter account, if you have this feature enabled.
For that, one still needs to log into twitter.com and approve manually.
I am using JAWS 13 and Firefox 9.0.1. I have to route jaws to PC and left-click on the accept or deny buttons for them to work.
I also left-click on the follow button, if I'm not already following that person who wishes to be accepted on my account.

Peter Holdstock <ptrholdstock@...>
 

That's not true if you've got it plugged in to a high defintion TV which makes windows default to high def. Sight and Sound in the UK told me to lower the resolution because I was having problems. You tend to find if the resolution is too high then the JAWS cursor doesn't work. That said, in 99% of cases the defaults will be fine.

You don't need to mess with your resolution any more. JAWS does not require
