It worked because you had a newer version.
Your friend could not tandem into your machine with an older version than you are using.

it actually worked with no issues.

Hi,

If it helps, I am using windows 10 with an I7 machine and jaws 2018.
The problem isn't that messenger (which is part of facebook) has
randomly changed, it's that it keeps reverting to this odd state every
6 weeks or so, and always on a particular random one of my browsers.
This time it is my (unextended) version of chrome, sometimes it is
internet explorer, sometimes it is firefox. The other browsers, aside
from the one it has decided to wrk strangely with, are fine; also it
is important to note that whenever it is working strangely, other
websites such as the online game politicsandwar.com also act
strangely.
Re-installing whichever browser, doing a complete scan and deleting
all internet files fails to solve this strange issue for me.

Tyler Wood
 

Hi,

I’d just like to throw a few things out there to clear the waters. Note that I literally got into Plex a few days ago.

You do not need a plex pass to listen to media on a mobile device. A one time fee of $4.99 will unlock it for that and future devices – this goes for the app store and google play store.

I’m not sure what said friend was doing, but it all depends on your upload speed. Obviously if you’re trying to sync a huge movie using your own internet connection it might not be as fast as copying it to one drive.

How are folks using plex on Windows with jaws? How do you find the experience? I should add here that I know you don’t need to pay anything if you’re going from computer to computer – and plex pass is far more than just letting you listen to your own content. It includes a streaming service similar to Netflix, hence the monthly $4.99. This is also clearly spelled out in the support articles.

I’m currently using it with Sonos (the music part) and for my needs it is working quite well. Your mileage may vary, of course, and it all depends on your needs, but I struggle to find something that is as open as this as far as streaming your own media from your home computer to just about any device on the planet that doesn’t involve some ridiculously complex setup. This seems to be a lot of set it and forget it, and the plex server software is web based and very useable with Jaws.

Tony,

 

I'll describe how I do it with Word 1010 on my desktop computer running Windows 7. Your results may vary depending on your version of Wofd.

 

1.   Open the applicable docx file with the label. I normally save mailing label files which only contain the address to be printed.

2.   I press alt + M to place focus on the top ribbon bar and right arrow until Mailings has focus then I down arrow to move to the lower ribbon bar.

3.   I right arrow until I hear Labels and press the enter key.

4.   A mailing label dialog opens with the address from the docx file already listed and highlighted in the address section of the dialog.

5.   Alt + F selects the radio button to print a full page of the same label and alt + N selects the radio button to print a single label.

6.   Tab once to move to the spin box to select the row of labels on which the single label is located and tab once again to move to the spinner box to select the column to select the appropriate column.

7.    Press alt + O to open the dialog where you can select the label model and type.

8.   After all settings are selected, press alt + P to print the label.

Tony,

 

If I'm understanding your question, I don't have any great workarounds for identifying which labels are left on a sheet of Avery 5160 which contain 10 rows of 3 labels per row as I mentioned in my first post. I can sort of feel by touch which labels have been used so I can properly identify the row and column of the next unused label when printing individual labels. Also, when I've moved down a sheet so that the only ones left are the bottom two rows, I can flip the sheet over so that those two remaining rows are at the top so it's like I'm starting with row 1 again.

 

I hope this helps but post back if I misunderstood your question.

I learned a long time ago after repeated envelope jams in the office laser printer to print on labels instead of envelopes. I prefer the Avery 5160 labels which come 3 to a row with 10 rows for a total of 30 labels on a sheet the same size as an 8 and a half by 11 inch sheet of paper and that can be loaded in a laser printer paper tray. Microsoft Word allows for label printing and you can select the label type and style and either print a full page of the same label or specifically identify what row and column label you are printing and print them individually. The sheet never jams in my black and white laser printer and I remove the printed label from the sheet and stick it on my envelope of choice for mailing. I keep a full sheet of return address labels which I use as needed.

 

I recommend that those having trouble printing addresses on envelopes give this method a go. It works great with Word 2010.

You are not making any sense.  You cannot print an envelope without some kind of program.  You cannot simply place an envelope in the printer and print an address on it without launching a program like MS Word to print it.  So which program are you using?

Until I bought my Dymo Label Printer I just printed envelopes in the following way without the need to get special programmes:

 

First, take out your paper from the printer and place your envelope in it with the flap facing upwards and move the slider across till it touches the edge of the envelope.

Now save the address to your clipboard.

Then press alt m (for mail) and e (for envelope) and the press enter on the first option, which I think is envelopes and copy the address into the edit field.

Then tab down to print.

 

Hopefully the job is doen.

 

But I have to say my Dymo label printer is one of the most useful gadgets I have ever purchased.

I'll describe how I do it with Word 1010 on my desktop computer running Windows 7. Your results may vary depending on your version of Wofd.

 

1.   Open the applicable docx file with the label. I normally save mailing label files which only contain the address to be printed.

2.   I press alt + M to place focus on the top ribbon bar and right arrow until Mailings has focus then I down arrow to move to the lower ribbon bar.

3.   I right arrow until I hear Labels and press the enter key.

4.   A mailing label dialog opens with the address from the docx file already listed and highlighted in the address section of the dialog.

5.   Alt + F selects the radio button to print a full page of the same label and alt + N selects the radio button to print a single label.

6.   Tab once to move to the spin box to select the row of labels on which the single label is located and tab once again to move to the spinner box to select the column to select the appropriate column.

7.    Press alt + O to open the dialog where you can select the label model and type.

8.   After all settings are selected, press alt + P to print the label.

How do I tell Word which position to print a label.  The times I have tried it arrowing down or right did not always go to the position I intended.

Tony,

 

If I'm understanding your question, I don't have any great workarounds for identifying which labels are left on a sheet of Avery 5160 which contain 10 rows of 3 labels per row as I mentioned in my first post. I can sort of feel by touch which labels have been used so I can properly identify the row and column of the next unused label when printing individual labels. Also, when I've moved down a sheet so that the only ones left are the bottom two rows, I can flip the sheet over so that those two remaining rows are at the top so it's like I'm starting with row 1 again.

 

I hope this helps but post back if I misunderstood your question.

 

Alan

I have had some problems putting individual labels into the correct spot on a partially used label sheet.  Do you have any suggestions for that?

I learned a long time ago after repeated envelope jams in the office laser printer to print on labels instead of envelopes. I prefer the Avery 5160 labels which come 3 to a row with 10 rows for a total of 30 labels on a sheet the same size as an 8 and a half by 11 inch sheet of paper and that can be loaded in a laser printer paper tray. Microsoft Word allows for label printing and you can select the label type and style and either print a full page of the same label or specifically identify what row and column label you are printing and print them individually. The sheet never jams in my black and white laser printer and I remove the printed label from the sheet and stick it on my envelope of choice for mailing. I keep a full sheet of return address labels which I use as needed.

 

I recommend that those having trouble printing addresses on envelopes give this method a go. It works great with Word 2010.

You are not making any sense.  You cannot print an envelope without some kind of program.  You cannot simply place an envelope in the printer and print an address on it without launching a program like MS Word to print it.  So which program are you using?

Until I bought my Dymo Label Printer I just printed envelopes in the following way without the need to get special programmes:

 

First, take out your paper from the printer and place your envelope in it with the flap facing upwards and move the slider across till it touches the edge of the envelope.

Now save the address to your clipboard.

Then press alt m (for mail) and e (for envelope) and the press enter on the first option, which I think is envelopes and copy the address into the edit field.

Then tab down to print.

 

Hopefully the job is doen.

 

But I have to say my Dymo label printer is one of the most useful gadgets I have ever purchased.

Yes, the upgrade charge is twice the SMA and the SMA gets you to upgrades for half the single upgrade cost. But if you let your SMA run out you have to pay the upgrade then pay the SMA cost to get back on the SMA plan.

Not so. The home version can only be installed on 3 computers. the pro version i think is 5 or more computers. and you can use remote access to another computer.

The JAWS Home Edition is the same as having the JAWS Proffessional edition. In
other words, there is no difference, except in the name and the difference in
the price.

Hello members,

I am currently using JAWS 2020 commercial license in my office and I am
interested to purchase JAWS 2020 Home edition for my personal use.

Is there is a difference in the functionalities while using various
applications in both the editions-home and commercial version?

I have got Windows 10 home edition in my personal laptop.

Also is it a good idea to purchase SMA along with JAWS?

Thanks,

Meesha

Just want to make it clear you don't pay for each version missed. There is a upgrade fee for getting the latest version if you don't have an SMA. The fee is the same if you are 1 version behind or 5.

Mario,
The big selling point to the annual license is that you won't need to
do any catch up payments to get the newest license. Eric D. says this a
lot on the FS Cast for those who have an older version of JAWS. For
those of us with a current SMA, it doesn’t seem to be a benefit to move
to the annual license. It really is a nice method for breaking down the
initial investment barrier and also for allowing people to move between
screen readers without the guilt of having purchased a really expensive
initial license.

Sieghard, just curious... if one falls behind in renewing their SMA
and decides to switch to purchasing the annual subscription, do they pay
for one subscription to update to the latest version therefore skipping
payment for the versions where they stopped, or do they have to pay for
each version that leads up to the latest version?

Thank you for explaining it so well. And yes, the dealer in India

SO I will be covered for three years.
Thank you. It's nice to have your opinion:)

If you buy Jaws you should absolutely and positively buy the SMA
with it and, unless you for some reason absolutely can't afford it you
should maintain that SMA. Given the relatively rapid development of
Windows 10, you will find that in 2 or 3 or 4 years you may not be able
to get the best experience from Windows 10 unless you also have the
latest release of Jaws, furthermore new features are added which often
can be very useful such as Picture Smart in Jaws 2019 or the new Jaws
Scan cursor in Jaws 2020 which kicks in whenever you open a Windows 10
app such as the Calculator etc. If you don't get an SMA which entitles
you to two full upgrades and you want to upgrade, say in 3 years, you
then basically have to buy two sMA'S, the first to cover you for the two
versions you missed and another to get you up to date. For example:

Say you now buy Jaws 2020 along with an SMA. This will get you full
access to Jaws 2020 and it will also entitle you to get Jaws 2021 and
Jaws 2022.
Lets assume you buy Jaws 2020 without SMA, but in the fall of 2022
you want to get Jaws 2023.
You would then have to buy two SMA's, one to cover Jaws 2021 and
Jaws 2022, then a second SMA which would then get you Jaws 2023 and
entitle you to Jaws 2024.
In the end you pay the same except you have to pay for two SMA's
all at once and you may actually pay more because often if you buy an
SMA right away you get it for a slightly lesser price. I believe you are
in India and I don't know how it is handled there, but I believe in the
US and Canada you get a bit of a discount if you buy a new SMA within a
couple of months after the old one runs out.
