The Jaws installer is setup to determine which machine you have and install the correct version.
If you have a 64 bit machine, it won't install a 32 bit version.
I suspect you could look at the properties of the jaws.exe file and find that info, but I wouldn't bother.

Just leave it there.

It will not cause you any problem and if something starts acting funny with 2020, you can see if it does the same with 2019 if needed.

Thanks Brian for the confirmation😊

So now I have downloaded the online version of JAWS 2020 and installed it on my system and I was expecting it to prompt for authorization however I think it automatically picked it up.

So far…. It seems to run smoothly. And I have two versions now –both 2019 and 2020. I am not sure if I should uninstall 2019 as for some reason I never had a smooth uninstallation of JAWS as whenever I try to uninstall it, it always leaves it’s components and then when I try to install the JAWS, it doesn’t get properly installed like doesn’t give the usual audio feedback etc.

So may be I leave both of these…I hope that wouldn’t be a problem??

Thanks

behind and does no longer send out what to many are useless pieces of
plastic especially since in my case I haven't had a PC with a DVD
drive for many years.
The Jaws installer has changed some time ago and it is now a fairly
small setup program which means it does not contain all the files
needed for installation, instead it will download what is required
from the web.
This approach is used by more and more software companies, it's been
this way with Adobe Acrobat Reader for a long time, Chrome and
Microsoft Edge are both installed this way, if you subscribe to
Microsoft Office 365 the installer for the Office suite is also like

The one difference between installers like most of the ones I
mentioned above and the Jaws installer is that you can actually keep
the Chrome installer or the Edge installer and if you run it a year
from now on a new system it will still work and also download whatever
is the latest version.
For Jaws you still need to download a different setup program for the
version of Jaws you want to install, but since it is only a bit over
40Mb, it only takes a few seconds on most fast internet connections
nowadays and another nice thing is that you don't have to worry about
32 Bit and 64 Bit, the installer does both, looks at your system and
knows which to install.
The older installer was about 180 Mb, but it still downloaded the OCR

If for some reason you need a full installer or maybe you have a very

I for one am glad Vispero has finally left the 50's and early 220's
behind and does no longer send out what to many are useless pieces of
plastic especially since in my case I haven't had a PC with a DVD
drive for many years.
The Jaws installer has changed some time ago and it is now a fairly
small setup program which means it does not contain all the files
needed for installation, instead it will download what is required
from the web.
This approach is used by increased software companies, it's been
this way with Adobe Acrobat Reader for a long time, Chrome and
Microsoft Edge are both installed this way, if you subscribe to
Microsoft Office 365 the installer for the Office suite is also like
this and so are many others.
The one difference between installers like most of the ones I
mentioned above and the Jaws installer is that you can actually keep
the Chrome installer or the Edge installer and if you run it a year
from now on a new system it will still work and also download whatever
is the latest version.
For Jaws you still need to download a different setup program for the
version of Jaws you want to install, but since it is only a bit over
40 Mb, it only takes a few seconds on most fast internet connections
nowadays and another nice thing is that you don't have to worry about
32 Bit and 64 Bit, the installer does both, looks at your system and
knows which to install.
The older installer was about 180 Mb, but it still downloaded the OCR
component during the installation.
If for some reason you need a full installer or maybe you have a very
slow internet connection where it's better to have everything
downloaded to your computer first you can still download the entire
DVD so to speak, it's I think something like a 500 or 600 Gb download
and it is entirely meant to be run offline if needed.

If you don't believe me go to the Freedom Scientific download page for Jaws and select the "Offline installer for secure environments".

this and so are many others.

The one difference between installers like most of the ones I

mentioned above and the Jaws installer is that you can actually keep

the Chrome installer or the Edge installer and if you run it a year

from now on a new system it will still work and also download whatever

is the latest version.

For Jaws you still need to download a different setup program for the

version of Jaws you want to install, but since it is only a bit over

40Mb, it only takes a few seconds on most fast internet connections

nowadays and another nice thing is that you don't have to worry about

32 Bit and 64 Bit, the installer does both, looks at your system and

knows which to install.

The older installer was about 180 Mb, but it still downloaded the OCR

component during the installation.

If for some reason you need a full installer or maybe you have a very

slow internet connection where it's better to have everything

downloaded to your computer first you can still download the entire

DVD so to speak, it's I think something like a 500 or 600 Gb download

and it is entirely meant to be run offline if needed.

The reason is because they make major updates through the year now and

would to keep sending out c d's for the updates.

They suggest downloading the update and then installing.  Then saving

the update on a thumb drive and do for each update through the year.

I am talking about the offline installer. As the name implies, it contains everything you could possibly need for an installation, all the OCR components, help files and so on and it is 832MB which is very close to 1 Terrabyte.
If you don't believe me go to the Freedom Scientific download page for Jaws and select the "Offline installer for secure environments".

moderated Re: Can't create a shortcut for JAWS 2020.

 

Are you sure you aren't using any of those for other versions of Jaws? Go into the properties for Jaws 2019 and see what the shortcut is. I don't know how many versions of Jaws you have on your system, but I assume it isn't unlikely that you have at least Jaws 2019 and Jaws 2020 and a keyboard shortcut combination can of course only be used once.

I've tried Alt CTRL J, I've tried CTRL Shift J and no luck.
So how can I get a short cut for JAWS created?

40Mb, it only takes a few seconds on most fast internet connections
nowadays and another nice thing is that you don't have to worry about
32 Bit and 64 Bit, the installer does both, looks at your system and
knows which to install.
The older installer was about 180 Mb, but it still downloaded the OCR
component during the installation.
If for some reason you need a full installer or maybe you have a very
slow internet connection where it's better to have everything
downloaded to your computer first you can still download the entire
DVD so to speak, it's I think something like a 500 or 600 Gb download
and it is entirely meant to be run offline if needed.

The reason is because they make major updates through the year now and
would to keep sending out c d's for the updates.
They suggest downloading the update and then installing. Then saving
the update on a thumb drive and do for each update through the year.

This is true. I do remember hearing on a podcast and later reading
somewhere they would no longer be sending out CD/DVD discs with JAWS.

Why don't you just download it, the fact is that even if they continue
this in my opinion useless and wasteful tradition of mailing out
DVD's, the version which will be current by the time you receive the
DVD will already be newer than the original Jaws 2020.1910.54 release
which you would get on the DVD.

Hi list:

Will Vispero be mailing out this latest Jaws program release on cd,
and if yes, when should I expect to receive it?

Sincerely,

Hi Orlando,

First of all this seems to be something which appears to be quite unique to you since I can easily add stuff to the dictionary. Furthermore, I am on the private Jaws beta team and I have heard about no such bug, in fact, another member of said beta team posted a message today referring to your post on this list asking if this is a problem for others.
As for Vispero not caring I also have to disagree. I have had some major problems with my point of sale and accounting software which both is legacy software. Under Windows 7 I could read and do a lot with the Jaws cursor which does no longer work in Windows 10. I contacted Vispero with this and they have assigned one of their developers who happens to be in Germany where I am also from originally to investigate this because it is also an interesting issue for them because they feel that if they can get the Jaws cursor to read this information again it will also help them overall to bring back more functionality as we knew it in Windows 7. It is quite a process to get this software up and running because first one has to install SQL, then the software, then about 4 updates and fearture packs as well as two pieces of additional software which piggybacks onto the database and which add functionality. I provided all this to the developer via Dropbox as well as an older backup of my retail store's database and he has already made progress which I know also translates to other applications.
I know It can be frustrating when you encounter an issue which prevents you from doing things the way you are used to, I spend a lot of time, in fact, about 2 years corresponding with various people from Vispero before somebody said they would take this on because they felt it would be of use not just to me but also to many other people who use older software for work or their own business. One thing I found is that it always pays off to approach a company using a reasonable tone, laying out the problem and letting them know that you understand that they also are busy, have priorities and they may not get to your issue right away. Jaws 2020 public beta has only been around for a month or so and if there really is an issue which is not caused by a unique problem or configuration on your system I am sure they will get to it. In the next Jaws update another issue which has come up on this list from time to time will be fixed, sorry, I can't say what because I agreed to not disclose private beta related stuff, but believe me, Vispero and their developers are working hard on fixing stuff and adding features.

Best regards,
Sieghard

I'm more concerned about old features continuing to work than new features. Ever since the first beta and now with the official 2020 release, I cannot add dictionary entries to my default file, nor can I associate another file as my default dictionary. My only recourse is to add entries manually to the file in Notepad, which is tedious and time consuming. How can such a basic aspect of screen-reading software go unnoticed and unattended, especially since I've reported this problem since the first beta, and sent Vispero Support detailed crash dumps? Answer: They just don't care. Software developers only listen to us when we threaten to withdraw our financial support.Orlando Enrique Fiol Ph.D. in Music Theory University of Pennsylvania: November, 2018 Professional Pianist/Keyboardist, Percussionist, Arranger, Performer and Pedagogue

I am talking about the offline installer. As the name implies, it contains everything you could possibly need for an installation, all the OCR components, help files and so on and it is 832MB which is very close to 1 Terrabyte.
If you don't believe me go to the Freedom Scientific download page for Jaws and select the "Offline installer for secure environments".

This approach is used by more and more software companies, it's been
