Just guessing here, but there may not be an application key at all. I
just bought a laptop that doesn't have one and it's going back to the
seller.

As for the function keys, they may be set to perform hardware
functions rather than the application specific functions you would
expect. I'm not sure how you would change that on an HP laptop. But
you can get the app specific function by holding down the FN key while
pressing the function keys.

I hope this helps.

Re: Evaluating laptop keyboards for jaws functionality

While I find an applications key incredibly nice I can get around
that, doing without the numpad would be much more troublesome.

A full-size regular US qwerty keyboard (but without function specific
keys like volume up/down) has 102 or 103 keys.

Also, you mentioned you bought a 13 inch model, anything less than a 15 inch
laptop will never have as complete a keyboard just because it's not large
enough. There are plenty of 15 inch laptops out there which have full

Subject: Evaluating laptop keyboards for jaws functionality

Hi All,

How do jaws users evaluate a keyboard on a laptop you are considering?
I'm talking about the presence (or absence) of keys that are necessary
to the functionality of jaws commands.

I received a new Lenovo Ideapad and was dismayed to realize that the
keyboard is missing not only the applications key but also the
dedicated home, end, page up and page down keys. Strangely, my old
Lenovo, the one I am typing this message on, has all these keys so it
never occurred to me to try and verify that the new one would also.
But now I'm wondering, how do you check the keyboard specs when
ordering a new laptop that you haven't actually had your hands on?

Before someone suggests an external keyboard let me say that I require
the portability of a laptop that doesn't necessitate dragging around
an extra keyboard. I also don't really want to remap a bunch of keys
to accomplish everyday functions.

So what do people suggest? Do I really have to drag myself over to
microcenter or some other store so I can actually touch the laptop I'm
considering? Is there another way?

Thanks for your thoughts.

And the Shift F10 combo on an HP sometimes requires the FN key as well ans sometimes not. That's probably my biggest issue with my HP laptop at home is sometimes the FN key is required and sometimes not. I often accidentally turn on airplane mode when trying to use JAWS F12 to check the time. I really do need to go get the bios changed.

Re: New Jaws subscription plan, why US only?

 

Hi Ron,

I beg to differ, for the US to call themselves America that is to me no problem, after all, we call them "Americans" not US'ers" or "United Statelers" and
Also, if you feel they should include Canada in America because we are part of North America then how about all the countries of central amd South America, that is still America or the American continent.
Furthermore, there are plenty of places overseas where English is the primary language, e.g. England, Australia, New Zealand.
Let's just let them figure it out, I'm sure if a subscription-based model is what Vispero wants to move to it will be offered here in Canada and elsewhere in due time.

In the US they love to identify themselves as America which is far from being correct. If they want to call themselves America, let them include all of North America. If they don't want to go overseas with this, due to language problems, that is their business but they should at least include all of North America in at least English which is the international language of computers.

As I see it, they are basically saying that us users outside the US don’t really require a more affordable way to purchase Jaws and that they are only giving this more affordable option to people in the US.

I’m also wondering what for example will stop me from simply using a friends US address when signing up for this plan. I doubt they’ll be monitoring where a user is located while using it, I think the only important thing to them is the address at sign up.

Re: New Computer

 

Why don't you go where you bought it and ask them to make sure the function keys are enabled, as others pointed out it most likely is set up by default so you have to press the FN together with whatever function key combination, e.g. Jaws Key+FN+F7 would give you your list of links.

As for the application key that is just not there on many laptops and even desktop keyboards, just use Shift+F10, it does the same thing.

Simple answer is I don't know! However, if Outlook is unable to log into an account, it ought to pop up a password box at that point. So my advice would be to go ahead and change the password of the account itself and then let Outlook fail to log in next time you start it up.

Re: Jaws 2019 dowload trouble

Matthew Horspool
 

Hello David,

Have you tried downloading the full offline installer from the following URL? https://www.freedomscientific.com/Downloads/OfflineInstallers#jaws

Usually the installer has to download components as part of the installation process and perhaps this is what is triggering your security software. The offline installer is significantly larger (over 500 MB) but all of the components are included, so no downloading needs to happen on the fly.

Subject: How do I get Outlook 2016 to stop reading a message's
subject line when I open it?

Hi!

In JFW 15 with Outlook 2007, I use to be able to have an opened
message begin automatically start reading but not its subject line,
just the message body. I don’t need the subject line re-read because
I already know it from the message’s preview in Outlook’s list box as
I scroll down my inbox. Now, with JFW 2019 and Outlook 2016 the
message’s subject line reads after I open it as JFW begins to read
the message’s body. How can I stop the message’s subject line from reading?

Thanks,
Richard
