Re: Jaws Repair Failure

Ron Pelletier
 

Hi,

 

In my many many years of using JAWS since Windows 95, I have never found the JAWS repair to be worth the effort.  It is much better to download the very latest version from Freedom’s site and install it right on top of the other. That will correct any files that could have been corrupted. You will notice that JAWS 2018 like previous versions hangs quite often and that is a pain to live with but it seems like its something they can’t fix. When I arrow in one direction and reverse too quickly, JAWS freezes.

Subject: Jaws Repair Failure

 

Hello, everyone.

 

Yesterday I began experiencing some navigation issues with Jaws 2018 version 1805.33.

 

As a result, I attempted a Jaws repair via the original executable file that I used when doing my latest Jaws update.

 

I got through about 70% of the Jaws repair, and got a Jaws repair failure message. … I tried the repair again, and got the same failure message at roughly the same point in the process.

 

Can someone tell me what this failure message might indicate about my Jaws instalation, and whether I should be concerned?

 

In the meantime, I have uninstalled and re-installed Jaws 2018, and all appears to be functioning normally.

 

I’m hesitant to do any repairs on the new instalation, but am still curious about the implications of the failure repair, since I have never experienced this in my almost 20 years of using Jaws.

Hi, Terrie. One thing I have found is that not all browsers play the audio captchas. You might want to change the browser you’re using. If you’re using Internet Explorer, try Firefox. If you’re using Firefox, try Edge, if using Windows 10. Note that for using Edge, you will need to check Flash Player under Site Information. To reach this in Edge,

 

1. While on the site in Edge, press F6, then TAB to site Information, and press ENTER.

2. Click Manage PlugIn, and check Flash.

3. Close Site Info.

4. Look for the Audio Captcha link and press ENTER. See if you get the audio now.

Ebay uses a numeric captcha for completing various types of transactions. There is a link for Listen to Numbers. I have clicked this link in every way I can think of and nothing plays. The Ebay directions say to check mute and volume of sound, but I know these are appropriate because I am playing Jaws through the same sound card.

Your accusations against Computers for the Blind  are totally outrageous and out of line.  They provide a valuable service, and I can attest from personal experience that their refurbished computers are not defective as you imply.  In fact, I am composing this message on a refurbed Dell Optiplex desktop that I acquired from them three years ago, and it works perfectly.  As ffor blind people getting out into the work force, the unemployment rate, by the NFB’s own admission is 70%, a figure which has not changed in decades, and a situation for which, as far as I am concerned, the blindness advocacy groups must bear part of the blame. And exactly what type of employment “opportunity” are you talking about?  Fuller Brush salesman?Avon lady?  Tupperware party?Multilevel marketing scheme?   Give me a break.

Good afternoon everyone,

 

                While we're glad they're working to make Jaws available on their computers Computers to Help People itself leaves lots to be desired! We know of cases where they sold used computers to blind persons that had hardware that was older than they were told it was. They don't offer their own tech support service, and offer equipment that is deffective and seriously out-of-date.

 

                While it's true unemployment is a serious issue among the blind it's also true that blind persons are presented with business and other opportunities that could give them more than any job could. We know this from having offering our opportunity to blind individuals who either flat turned it down or got involved and didn't remain committed to making it work for them. Our advice to anyone wanting assistive technology or want to upgrade your current technology and to skip the rehab rat race if opportunity comes calling it's legal and credible and you know the person presenting it to you, answer the door, let it in, get on board, and make it happen!

 

                There's no reason why blind persons offered such opportunities should be using junked hardware and seriously out-of-date software. It's your responsibility to develop the needed income streams to keep your equipment and applications current. Failure to do this will be a lack of responsibility on your part! The same also goes for viewing those who have done this successfully as braggers, show-offs etc. Someone who wanted to simply brag about their achievements wouldn't offer to help others do what they accomplished. Such thinking only keeps people broke and forces them to be relegated to using cast-off equipment!

 

                We have done what we're suggesting and will gladly discuss this subject off-list. We received a steamy reminder of our responsibility to have income sorces available for when life happens this past weekend. Late friday evening our air conditioning went out and wasn't repaired until late Saturday evening. Because we took responsibility and positioned ourselves to meet unexpected life challenges we had reserves available from "Yes" decisions we made when opportunity came around. We were able to gtake refuge in a local hotel until our apartment had cooled down to where we could return home.

 

                Mary and I wish to urge everyone to follow our example so you can buy current hardware and software and receive the quality support needed to keep it in ship shape. All the best for a great weekend.

 

Peter Donahue

This is pretty cool. For those of us who already have Jaws, probably not a “big deal”, but still. The more who are able to get access to a quality screen reader, the better.

And yes, I am aware of NVDA.

I’ve helped a VI low-income friend get a machine from this organization in the past. They do good work.

Once you get past the initial purchase of Jaws, if you price out the SMAs, it’s basically a $5.00 monthly subscription anyway.

I have free goldwave scripts which seem to work with goldwave 6.32.
The only problem with them is that sometimes if you hit alt-shift-d
for instance, it gives the previous setting before you hit one of the
brackets. I do not know if this is true of Brian Hartgen's scripts.

It is surprising that Jaws does not have a script to handle this situation because Windoweyes did.  Maybe someone with the skills could write one.

 

After sending out my original message, I remembered  there wass a free text editor where this ability was builtin although the program  has not been mentioned for some years. Edsharp, written by a blind programmer Jamal Mazrui's had a huge range of functions including selecting large blocks of text.

Tom,

             Have just tested these, which are part of a document I wrote up on selecting text via the keyboard and these work in Notepad. 

Selecting large “chunks” of your document

CTRL+A selects all, from beginning to end of the document, no matter what your current cursor position

CTRL+SHIFT+End Button [Num Pad 1] selects from the cursor position to the end of document

CTRL+Shift+Home button [Num Pad 7] selects from the cursor position to the beginning of the document

Line by line selection   (and a line in Notepad is a sequence of characters that ends with Enter. provided the cursor is positioned at the start of the line, see note below)

SHIFT+Down Arrow Button [Num Pad 2] selects the current line if the cursor is positioned to the left of the first word in the line

 

SHIFT+Up Arrow Button [Num Pad 8] selects the current line if the cursor is positioned to the right of the last word in the line
Note:  
If the cursor is positioned in the middle of the line you will get selection wrap to the next line until the number of characters from the start of current line are selected.

 

Word by word selection

CTRL+SHIFT+Right Arrow Button [Num Pad 6] selects word by word working from left to right (normal reading order).  Note, it selects the space at the end of the word  that separates it from the next word, too.

CTRL+SHIFT+Left Arrow Button [Num Pad 4] selects word by word working from right to left (backward through text).

Either of the above can be used to unselect words you've already selected going in the opposite direction.  So if you accidentally overshoot you can correct it.

Character by character selection

SHIFT+Right Arrow Button [Num Pad 6] selects character by character working from left to right

SHIFT+Left Arrow Button [Num Pad 6] selects character by character working from right to left

 

Either of the above can be used to unselect characters you've already selected going in the opposite direction.  So if you accidentally overshoot you can correct it.
