Yeah, that is a known issue. Prior to a recent Windows update, I would have recommended the aftershock headsets because they were working nicely for me, with almost zero latency. That is no longer the case -- they are now virtually unusable and all other headsets suffered from the same issues.

Of course it is accessible.  I'm blind, myself, and I am using it on two pc's.  One where the bluetooth headset tries to save power and one where the sound card does the same.

I did this morning.  They were not helpful.  We tried unchecking the Windows power option “fast start,” but that did not fix the problem.  They then said I should upgrade to JAWS 2020, and if that did not fix the problem to call the Microsoft disability hotline.

Hi Mike!

 

About your #2 below, I looked at that and indeed JAWS 2019 is checked.  It is the only screen reader I have installed.  About your #1 below, when I press control+shift+escape, I do get to task manager.  However, there seems not to be any “startup” tab.  Pressing control+tab does nothing since there is only the one main window without any other tabs.

 

I would appreciate any other suggestions!

2 things come to mind, read and check both to see if they're both on / checked:

#1:

Try pressing, control, shift + escape, to open the task manager.

Control + tab to the Startup tab and tab 1 time into a list of items.

Down arrow to Application file for Jaws and tab 3 times to see its status.  If it says, Enable, this means that Jaws is not turned on to start with the computer.  So, press the spacebar so Jaws reports, Disable, to turn it on.  No, I'm not talking backwards, this is the way it works.  Now Alt + F4 to close and reboot the computer to see if it works.

 

#2:

1. Open the control panel, navigate to the Ease of Access Center link and press enter.

 

2. Tab to, Use the computer without a display Link, and press enter.


3. Now tab several times to find all of your installed screenreaders and make sure the version of Jaws you want to run at startup is checked.

Hi,

 

I’m using an HP computer running the latest versions of both windows 10 and jaws.

 

I’m having issues saving info to OneNote from the latest version of chrome, into OneNote, using the extension.

Jaws doesn’t see a “save” button in the OneNote web clipper.

 

Can anyone help?

Thanks for your comments, Adrian.

Regarding progress tones I think that it should be a four-way toggle with options for speech, sounds, speech and sounds along with no feedback. JAWS could default to having progress reports being provided as speech only, keeping it to the long-standing default setting.

As for the potential for hotkey conflicts I do see what you mean. At one point I had versions for JAWS 16, 17, 18, 2018 and 2019 on my desktop. I had different hotkeys assigned to each of them, with ctrl+alt+J for whatever the current version was at that time. When a new version number was released, such as JAWS 2020, I did need to do a bit of juggling to keep things straight and users running multiple versions would need to keep track of which keys were being used for specific versions and might have to do a bit of shuffling, when required.

First, like many JAWS users, I tend to have more than one version on my system. Each has its own hotkey. I wonder if conflicts could arise if users created the hotkey during the startup wizard.

 

Second, although JAWS doesn’t issue tones during software downloads, you can get spoken percentage messages by pressing JAWS key+tab. Personally, I’d prefer not to have tones because I like to work on other things while software is downloading. That said, I note that you recommend that the user have the option of silencing the tones. I also understand that tones could be desirable in addition to spoken progress reports. So I mention the JAWS key-tab keystroke in case anyone is unfamiliar with it.

Hi!
I am running the latest version of JAWS 2019. Recently, I upgraded
from Windows 7 to 10. After doing so, JAWS does not launch
automatically upon startup. For now, the PC has only one user account
with no password. As such, when started the PC just logs-in and goes
straight to the desktop. I have set JAWS 1) to launch at the logon
screen (though there is none yet) and 2) always to start for the user.
Still, JAWS does not launch.
What is the solution to this?
Thanks,
Richard

Richard, have you called Jaws technical support? I think at this point this might be a good way to troubleshoot this further.

Hi Mike!

 

About your #2 below, I looked at that and indeed JAWS 2019 is checked.  It is the only screen reader I have installed.  About your #1 below, when I press control+shift+escape, I do get to task manager.  However, there seems not to be any “startup” tab.  Pressing control+tab does nothing since there is only the one main window without any other tabs.

 

I would appreciate any other suggestions!

 

Thanks,

Richard

2 things come to mind, read and check both to see if they're both on / checked:

#1:

Try pressing, control, shift + escape, to open the task manager.

Control + tab to the Startup tab and tab 1 time into a list of items.

Down arrow to Application file for Jaws and tab 3 times to see its status.  If it says, Enable, this means that Jaws is not turned on to start with the computer.  So, press the spacebar so Jaws reports, Disable, to turn it on.  No, I'm not talking backwards, this is the way it works.  Now Alt + F4 to close and reboot the computer to see if it works.

 

#2:

1. Open the control panel, navigate to the Ease of Access Center link and press enter.

 

2. Tab to, Use the computer without a display Link, and press enter.


3. Now tab several times to find all of your installed screenreaders and make sure the version of Jaws you want to run at startup is checked.
 


Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.

That should have absolutely no influence as to whether Jaws starts properly as it should if the correct settings are selected in Jaws Options > Basics > Automatically Start Jaws...

Hello,
I'm not sure if Windows 10 Home or Pro makes a difference in the installation and start-up sequence. But it would help if Richard, you could tell us if you are running Windows 10 Home Edition or Pro.

Hi all,
I'm using the latest version of Jaws 2020. When I use control + page up or
page down to switch between sheets, it says "sheet tab" first and then the
tab name. How do I get it to stop saying "sheet tab"? Jaws does not do this
when using the classic excel scripts which are for older versions of excel.

Thanks in advance.

Jason
