If you just want to temporarilly increase or decrease the speach rate, while
JAWS is reading after pressing Insert+Down Arrow, just press the Page up to
increase or Page Down to decrease the rate. The speach will revert back to
your normal setting when you Alt+Tab away and back to your application.

I'm not sure if this affects just the program in use or it affects the
default (global) setting, but:

control+alt+page up or page down increases or decreases the speech rate
but the change is temporary.

control+windows+alt+page up or page down increases or decreases speech
rate but the change is permanent.

Just save it to your desktop or downloads folder, shouldn’t be a problem and there is no reason to save stuff to your root drive.

Dear Listers:

 

When I tried to install the latest JAWS 2019 update tonight, it would not download, and I got a suggestion to do a JAWS repair.  I am using the JAWS Home edition and am using Windows 10.  With the update of JAWS 2019 I have, the version that I have is J2019.1907.31.  When I went to the Freedom Scientific download page and tried to locate the .exe for J2019.1907.31 there was none.  All that showed was J2019.1907.42.exe.  When I tried to save it to the C drive I got a dialog saying that my administrator would not allow me to save it on the C drive.  Even after I renamed the file as j2019.1907.31.exe, the same dialog  kept popping up.  I have to do a JAWS repair before I will be able to download the latest update.  Can one of you help me and tell me how to go about it.  Thanks.

I don’t think JAWS sees highlights. If your collaborator is willing, perhaps to place a character, such as star or left bracket that may not appear anywhere else in the text, at the beginning of the highlighted passage, then you could search for that character.  But of course not everybody can or will take that step.

Hi All,
 
This J2019.1907.42 is an update to the J2019.1907.31 update that came out the other day.  Y'all know the drill.
 
32 & 64 bit:
 
 
What's new:
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1907.42 (August 2019)
This update to the August 2019 release addresses a recently discovered issue where JAWS application scripts failed to load in the latest Skype for Desktop
update (version 8.51) released the week of August 12, 2019. There are other possible applications where this could have resulted in scripts not loading
also such as the Desktop version of Slack.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Just a suggestion, but, if the programme is a command line utility, you could run it without speech, get it to generate a report file that you can look at later, then issue whatever repair commands the programme has available afterwards and, you know, cross your fingers. :D

I'm sure you can still find Jaws for Dos around, if you want/need it. The Talking Dos Box is one thing that is packaged with it. I haven't really played with this though. I originally got it so I could play Eamon Deluxe games (a qbasic port of the Eamon adventure system for Apple II), but it's just one of the many things I can't seem to be bothered to spend a lot of time fiddling with.

6.1 and subsequently 6.2 or above is coming, but when, I haven't got a clue. it's true it's been a while it hasn't been updated , but there wasn't any need as there weren't any complaints of problems in 6.0... according to Steve Gibson.

I wish there was a DOS screen reader I could use when Spinrite runs.
I recall Freedom Scientific had a link on their website for saving a copy of JAWS For DOS, but it is no longer there. darn.

The GRC web site clearly refers to the latest version of Spinwrite as,, "Spinwrite 6.0 for Windows XP".?? It does not mention Windows 7, 8 or 10.?? Further research reveals that it has not been updated since 2010.?? So how could it work with a modern computer? On the contrary, it might actually do more harm than good.??

SeaTools for Windows (and there is a bootable version, too) by Seagate is an excellent utility and can be used on any brand of drive.   If you do know your drive's manufacturer and they have a diagnostic utility, that's the best thing to use, but if they don't, SeaTools is a great fallback.  I cannot speak to its accessibility.

Hello.


If it were me, I'd find out who made the drive in question and get the manufacturer's diagnostic, no matter how well or poorly it works with speech.  That is the only way you are going to ever really be sure what you're dealing with,  If the hardware is okay, there may be a third party program to try to fix issues you are having, if the hardware isn't you're wasting your time.
