Hi,

Does this affect links list and other commands? How about using Tab to navigate around the screen?

If it is what I think is happening, it is because Microsoft (in their infinite wisdom) decided to enable native UI Automation implementation in Edge 79 beta (Chromium based). In short, you must disable this (I’ll write a detailed set of instructions in a few minutes for wider distribution), which can be done by visiting edge://flags, look for UI Automation, and choose “disabled” from the combo box and restart Edge.

Cheers,

Joseph

Remove it using the add remove programs list. But leave the shared components if you have previous jaws versions or other Freedom Scientific products.

hi,
I downloaded Jaws 2020 onto a new computer today and ran the install. The computer got hung up for several hours, after which I shut down the computer and rebooted. Upon rebooting,Jawsspoke, but only haltingly.
can someone please remind me of the best way to completely uninstall what I believe to be a corrupted download so I can reinstall a clean version?

Many, many thanks in advance. Keith

I second Richard on all accounts.
Did you try cleaning between the keys? I use a small amount of rubbing
alcohol as it evaporates after a short time and will not damage any
sticky areas.
I am using JAWS 2020 and enjoy it. I did the $90/year subscription.
Again, your situation with JAWS is based on affordability.
Hope this helps.

need 2018, 2019 and 2020, but since you get a little better deal doing them
in groups of two, you may want to do through 2021.
Or, you could go with the subscription model at $90 per year and jump right

You'll have to do the math to see which makes the most sense in your

You have to be very specific in how you search for this item, as follows:

 

Open an email message in Outlook and place focus in it. The “Layout table” item won’t appear otherwise.

Press JAWS key+v.

An edit field appears.

Type the six letters t a b l e s.

Now press enter.

Arrow down until JAWS verbalizes “Layout table, ignore.”

Once there, press the spacebar to cycle between checked or unchecked. You want the item checked.

 

I hope it makes a difference on your system. Sadly, it hasn’t on mine.

Cristóbal
 

Generally yes I would agree. There is a site I use from time to time for more technical stuff, but on a whole, Google Translate is probably the answer.

On a side note, I actually just finished installing the Google translate extension on my laptop with Chrome and one thing I noticed when running the extension for a word I was trying to get the translation for, was that the buttons seem to be unlabeled. I tried turning off the virtual cursor and tabbing around since sometimes I can get the description that way, but nope. Jaws just says button.

I don’t know if you can lend your eyes and take a peak Brian and maybe give a quick hand? To be clear this isn’t in regards to the Google Translate site, but rather the extension itself.

Thanks,
