Re: Is there a reason to not upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

David & his pack of dogs
 

I think Siegart, sorry if I spelled your name incorrectly, hit the nail on the head when he talked about  the hard drive being on its last legs.  Maybe I am out of the loop of techies however, when I hear the term refurbished, I think new hard drive, new battery  and brand new operating system.  In this case, I think they just installed a windows 10 CD. It runs hot within 10 minutes. This is why I think it is running something it does not have the power to run and is basically working to hard.

Re: For a friend New desktop computer window 10 Jaws 17

Chris Hill
 

The simplest way to check is to hit windows-r and type in winver.


Mine, for example, says version 1803, which is the April 2018 version.  I'll bet a new computer from the store would have this version.  If that is what your friend has, she probably should be talking to Freedom Scientific to see if her version of jaws will actually work with it.

The phonetic thing is actually a new feature. It’s meant to help out folks who may have hearing issues or would like a little more help with distinguishing between letters. This feature is also present in the iOS platform.

You can go into Jaws settings and adjust the delay for when the phonetic pronunciation is spoken or disable it all together.

The other thing, I have no idea.

Hello, again, everyone.

 

I have discovered two more problems with Jaws 2019 and Outlook 2016 on my Windows 7 laptop.

 

When I use the insert numpad 2 command to read an entire message, Jaws skips parts of lines.  I can read the complete lines by arrowing down through the message, but, as you can imagine, this gets quite cumbersome.

 

In addition, I have noticed that Jaws now gives phonetics for the first letter of a word when I navigate through a message that I’m composing, and I also notice that Jaws sometimes speaks the last character I type again after several seconds.

 

I seem to recall someone else having similar issues but am not sure how or whether they got resolved.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Hi Tom,
 
Here's where to go to turn off the phonetics.
From: Eric Damery
Go into the Settings Center, make sure that you get the Default file loaded (CTRL + SHIFT + D), and then search for "Phonetic". It should be the second
item in the list.
 
Eric
 
From: Hicks Steven (CORNWALL IT SERVICES) via Groups.Io
JAWS Key + 6, settings centre, shift+ctrl+d if you want to change the default behaviour.
In the search box, type Ph for Phonetic and you will find it in there.
I Have turned mine off as well.

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

Actually, there are cases where laptops will allow you to do a few f keys without using the function key.  Particularly, alt+f4 is sometimes allowed, but, not others.

 

Usually, you will need to have help going into the system’s bios menus to change the behavior, and this is usually not accessible.

 

I knew of one laptop where you could actually go into Windows mobility center and change this under Windows, but, I have never seen it like this since.

For starters you eather need to have someone go into the bios and change the defalt of the function keys.  They now are set for hp device operations, and you need to change it to just f keys.

 

If you do not do this then you would have to press the function key and along with your jaws key and f 7 to have the jaws action take place. And this would be for all f key operations.

Good morning all,

I recently bought a new HP Laptop. I am having a couple of problems but I think it is me not the computer. Some of my shortcut keys are not working such as Insert F7 for links, or F7 for Spell Check. I cannot seem to find the application key where in the past it has always been two keys to the right of the space bar. I have my keyboard set to laptop. I have had no luck trying to search these issues online. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Kind Regards,

Angie Goodnight

Hi, Tom. To turn off auto preview,

 

1. Open Outlook.

2. Press ALT plus V, followed by V.

3. Press ALT plus O for Other Settings.

4. TAB until you see a setting that reads:

 

Auto Preview Off, and make sure it is checked.

 

5. TAB to OK and press ENTER.

6. If necessary, TAB again to OK, and press ENTER.

 

Now Auto Preview should be turned off.

I just went into Jaws quick settings, and couldn’t find an option to disable phoenetics.

 

Am I not going to the right place?

The phonetic thing is actually a new feature. It’s meant to help out folks who may have hearing issues or would like a little more help with distinguishing between letters. This feature is also present in the iOS platform.

You can go into Jaws settings and adjust the delay for when the phonetic pronunciation is spoken or disable it all together.

The other thing, I have no idea.

Hello, again, everyone.

 

I have discovered two more problems with Jaws 2019 and Outlook 2016 on my Windows 7 laptop.

 

When I use the insert numpad 2 command to read an entire message, Jaws skips parts of lines.  I can read the complete lines by arrowing down through the message, but, as you can imagine, this gets quite cumbersome.

 

In addition, I have noticed that Jaws now gives phonetics for the first letter of a word when I navigate through a message that I’m composing, and I also notice that Jaws sometimes speaks the last character I type again after several seconds.

 

I seem to recall someone else having similar issues but am not sure how or whether they got resolved.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Hi, Tom. I just noticed that in your email to the list, you misspelled phonetically. Maybe that’s why you didn’t find it. It starts out, p h o n, not p h o e n.

Hi, Tom. To turn off Phonetic Announcement:

 

1. Press INSERT plus six on the numbers row, not the NumPad.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load the default configuration of JAWS.

3. At the search box, type in, phonetic

4. Look for a selection which reads:

 

When pausing after character navigation, speak character phonetically,

 

5. Press the Space Bar until it says, Never.

6. TAB to OK, and press space to close.

 

Now, whenever you navigate characters with the Arrow keys, it won’t say the last character phonetically.
