Hi,
This is completely, 100% true.
Although using a solid state drive in 2019 is almost a must - at least for
those that have experienced one. But so far as other sspecs are concerned
there are too many people out there that equate an i7 or i9 to being better
and that simply isn't true for just about 99% of use case scenarios.
Now that I look back at the specs, what are you needing a dedicated Nvidia
Graphics card for in particular? Intel hd graphics does just fine so far as
Jaws is concerned.

The suggestion about a 500 GB SSD is totally subjective.
I've seen folks who never use more than 80 to 10 GB of their HD.
Too often people think bigger is better and that is not always the case.
Also, when you look at all the high specs, what are you doing with it all?
I mean, I'll bet 90% of us here don't do any more than read eMail, open some
web pages, open a spread sheet program once in a while, and listen to some
MP3 audio.
All this can be done with 10 year old technology just fine.

16 GB of ram is the new 8 gb these days. Processors don't mean quite as much
for screen reader users especially when buying a flagship 2019 machine with
an i3, i5, or i7 processor, let alone the i9. If the machine does not have
user replaceable ram, get as much as you can - same with the solid state
drive if you plan on storing things, (just remember to back that up!) Just
as an example, Chrome eats up a ton of memory for no reason, and things will
likely only get worse as time goes on.
Notebookcheck.net is a fantastic resource if you want to look at notebook
reviews as they go into great detail on the hardware, the feel, the heat
dissipation, and battery life, and they tend to be very realistic on what is
and is not a good quality machine. They tend to take a while to get reviews
out simply because they do many stress tests on the machines to make sure
initial tests aren't wrong.

Hope that helps!

Hi,
If I may make one huge suggestion.
If it is at all possible to bring that down to a core i7 or i5, you can save
yourself quite a chunk of money and upgrade the ssd with hardly any loss in
overall performance. Don't believe the marketing hype from Intel and other
manufacturers - the i9 is far too expensive to make it worth it.
The i9 processor is often times slower at single core performance (which is
what is done 99% of the time) than a comparably equipped i7 or i5 since it
produces tons more heat at those higher clock speed and most machines can't
handle that thermal envelope.
The i7 will last you 6 years - that in and of itself is a 6 core, 12 thread
monster of a processor that puts most older desktops to shame, let alone
laptops. Remember that most things, including jaws, use, for the most part,
one core (or thread, in this case). The i9 may have 8 cores and 16 threads,
but according to several sources even when it is maxed out, the i7 is
overall quicker simply because of either processor temperature reaching
maximum (100 C) or thermal designed power limit, 45 wats.
I just purchased a Lenovo thinkpad x1 extreme. It is beautifully,
blisteringly, wonderfully fast and is equipped with the i7-8750h. I could
have easily gotten the i5 and been happy. If you're looking for long term,
though, the i7 is a very nice compromise and will last you for years. The i9
is about 5-10% faster overall and simply is not worth the price. Jaws will
scream no matter which you choose and be ridiculously fast.

Sorry for the long message. I just wanted to make you aware. This may not
even effect you personally if you don't do much with the machine - but it's
certainly worth taking note of, especially with a high cost investment. I'd
like to see you get your moneys worth.

Sent from my iPhone hello Group,
Recently I had some issues with my PC which required a complete reinstallation of windows and the maintenance of other issues.
After bringing it home today I attempted to open Jaws which ended up being limited to a 40 minute trial mode. As I do not have my authorization number written down, I probably will not have access to Jaws until I make contact with freedom scientific this Monday.
In the meantime is there a way that I can access Jaws and itp’s Full capacity.
I would appreciate any and all assistance.

This is a non-standard control, but it doesn't look unusable. With Chrome, I tab to the edit box, and type in the first two letters of Rhode island. Then I tab and there it is in the box. You might have to arrow up to fill it in, I'm not sure, but henceforth, when I tabbed through the form, Rhode Island came up when I hit the State field. So try that and see if you can submit the form. The zip code is the same kind of field. I don't know if the form allows you to select them from a map, or what the deal is.

Jed,

No snark whatsoever is intended with what follows.

Try a different web browser (pick any Chromium based one), screen reader, or
both.

What I get when I hit the state box is a bit odd, but if you begin typing
out the whole state name the correct one appears as soon as you've given
enough characters to make it distinct.  For example, typing V shows
Virginia, Vermont, and Virgin Islands.  Add the letter I and Vermont
disappears, add the "rgini" and you only have Virginia as the choice.  When
I hit Enter it fills in Virginia and says something like "Virginia link" or
similar.   This thing is not a conventional combo box.  It is a new thing
that I have never encountered before, and I actually like it far better than
a conventional combo box.  I cannot figure out why the list of options is
not being read as one arrows down through them, but either this new object
is not exposing the text to the screen reader or screen readers have not yet
been updated to deal with this new web object.  I was using NVDA and Brave
(which is Chromium-based) for my quick test.

If you need to fill in Rhode Island then all you need to do is type the
letter R and hit Enter.  The screen reader should tell you that Rhode Island
now appears in the state box.

Over time I have certainly learned that different browsers and different
screen readers may "play better" with specific web pages.  When push comes
to shove I change one variable at a time, typically changing the browser
first, and the screen reader second.

after it says state there is a blank line. press enter to activate forms
mode. press alt plus down arrow like you would open a dialog box. then just
down and up arrow till you find your state and press enter. i'm using latest
jaws and waterfox. hope this helps.

Hey guys
So i am trying to apply for a position, but am running into an issue
with their web page.
So i can fill out most of the form, until i get to the state. It
comes up as an edit box, but it also looks like it's a dropdown to
select a state. I don't understand why people don't use combo boxes
the way they are supposed to.
Can someone look at it, to figure out how i am supposed to enter the
state, cause i can't submit the form.

Hi Jed, the states and jobs are split I'm going to Collins, so you have to interact with the column in that state jobs as you want. Does that help you any? There's no pop up box or anything.
