If I have Jaws 2018, or Jaws 2019 load at login and after login, when I go to shut down or restart, the operation is blocked and there is nothing I can do other than power down.

I only had one version loading of course, but I tried with each separately.

If I use Narrator at login and after login, I can restart or shut down with no issues what so ever.



Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, how was it resolved?

This works with amy browser, hilight the URL by doing alt-d and ctrl-a
and then copy to the clipboard using ctrl-c. Now go to that favorites
folder and do alt-h-w-s and paste the URL into the edit box, hit next
and name the shortcut.

Hello David,



I like your idea below. I have been using both Firefox and Internet Explorer. I recently installed Chrome. I placed on my desktop a link to the Internet Explorer Favorites list folder. So now I can use this same list for both of the
browsers. However when I tried to use this with Chrome, it did not work. I got garbage for web results. Do I need to change the Favorites file format for Chrome? Is there a specific method I must use to access the desktop folder?
Some other ideas?



I am using a Windows 7 computer.



Thanks.

Subject: Re: bookmarks chrome RE: best web browser to use with JAWS?



Hello,

There is a nice and easy way to deal with bookmarks in Chrome, favorites in IE, etc. Personally,

I think that accessing and managing bookmarks in Chrome in Firefox is very clunky. By

contrast, it is extremely easy to access and manage favorites in IE.



If you create a desktop shortcut for your favorites folder, you can open the favorites in whatever

browser you have chosen as your default. I have Chrome as my default browser, maintain all my

favorites in IE, and open them from the desktop with Chrome. I make no effort to maintain

bookmarks in Chrome or Firefox, And in Windows 10, it is very easy to change your default

browser via the Control Panel.



Regards,

David

Are you talking about using the run command?
Unloading jaws, loading Narrator and doing a standard shut down or restart seems easier until I find out why the ---- this is happening.

moderated Placing Bookmark File on Desktop for Browser Use

Barbara <batterseye@...>
 

Hello David,

 

I like your idea below.  I have been using both Firefox and Internet Explorer.  I recently installed Chrome.  I placed on my desktop a link to the Internet Explorer Favorites list folder.  So now I can use this same list for both of the browsers.  However when I tried to use this with Chrome, it did not work.  I got garbage for web results.  Do I need to change the Favorites file format for Chrome?  Is there a specific method I must use to access the desktop folder? Some other ideas?

 

I am using a Windows 7 computer.

 

Thanks.

Subject:   Re: bookmarks chrome RE: best web browser to use with JAWS?

 

Hello,

There is a nice and easy way to deal with bookmarks in Chrome, favorites in IE, etc. Personally,

I think that accessing and managing bookmarks in Chrome in Firefox is very clunky. By

contrast, it is extremely easy to access and manage favorites in IE.

 

If you create a desktop shortcut for your favorites folder, you can open the favorites in whatever

browser you have chosen as your default. I have Chrome as my default browser, maintain all my

favorites in IE, and open them from the desktop with Chrome. I make no effort to maintain

bookmarks in Chrome or Firefox, And in Windows 10, it is very easy to change your default

browser via the Control Panel.

 

Regards,

David

Hi Richard,

I've had some similar experiences.

The only way I found around it was to clear everything except JAWS from the taskbar, and then shutdown seems to work for me after that.

moderated Re: Jaws does not read the content of screen using jaws cursor.

 

Hi Mario,

I asked about this again on the Jaws Beta list and also asked if somebody from Vispero could comment. If I get an answer regarding this on Windows 7 I'll let you know, but as I said, there really should be any need for this and I am not entirely sure if it wouldn't do more harm than good.
I Also asked about why in some cases the ToogleScreenCapture is not in the keyboard manager and will provide the answer once I have it.

You can potentially turn off the accessibility display driver in Jaws 2018, but I am not sure if it would do much good and certainly I don't think you would have the option to set a keyboard shortcut. The keyboard shortcut was introduced in Jaws 2019 in the last few months.
Also, you should not turn off the accessibility display driver if you use Windows 7, not sure why this option is even there, but in Windows 7 the new method for Jaws to obtain information from Windows is of no concern, it only became necessary in Windows 10 for Vispero to look at a new way to get this information. This is why you often can't read anything with the Jaws cursor in Windows 10 where this worked perfectly fine in Windows 7.

Mike B. posted instructions to assign a keystroke to the accessibility
driver. However, using JAWS 2019 on Windows 10 1903, my list of default
keyboard commands does not include anything like "toggle screen capture
method" or "toggle accessibility driver". What might I be missing?
