Must be my typo - sorry. (meant 4 GB, but slightly less, as others said on various forums).

Joseph, just to correct you, windows 32 bit can only use up to 3 in
some cases 3.2 or 3.5 GB of RAM and not 7 GB as you said.

Re: What are 32 and 64 bit?, was Is jaws the same on 32 and 64 bit?

Nickus de Vos <bigboy529@...>
 

It also refers to the amount of bits your computer can process at the
same time. As said you get hardware which can process 64 bits like
motherboards, processors and ram but you can also run a 32 bit system
on these, but you can't run a 64 bit system on 32 bit hardware. You
get both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of windows, office and jaws, in
fact these days you get 64 bit versions of almost all software. The
advantage of a 64 bit system is speed and faster processing if
performing complex tasks like video or audio editing or rendering of
any other resorce hungry tasks. As said you probably already have a 64
bit system but to make sure, in windows 7 write click or applications
key on computer, then enter on properties, press jaws key + B or if
you have jaws 13 OCR the page, it will then read a lot of stuff about
your opperating system and computers hardware and someware it will
also say "system type 32 bit or 64 bit."
Just as a example of what I said above about 64 bit hardware, I've had
a 64 bit motherboard and processor for a while now but have been
running 32 bit windows all the time but now I want to switch to 64 bit
because I have more RAM in my computer and 32 bit windows can only use
up to 3.5 GB RAM no matter how much you have installed where 64 bit
windows can use all the installed RAM weather it's 1 GB or 64 GB,
however from personal experience with other computers I won't
recommend getting 64 bit windows on a machine with less than 3 GB RAM
and especially if you don't really going to use 64 bit resorce hungry
applications. This might just be me but in the past it felt like
machines with only 2 GB RAM running 64 bit were slower than when the
same machine ran on 32 bit windows.

Re: What are 32 and 64 bit?, was Is jaws the same on 32 and 64 bit?

John ESherrer
 

The difference between 32 and 64 bit is that the machine code, which is the
programming code that actually reaches the processor can take program
statement 64 bits long, that is a 0 or 1 since the code is in binary.
This also means that 64 separate lines run through out the computer mother
board, and to some devices outside the mother board, running much faster
than when yyou had 32 lines.
Sometimes 32 bit code can take more than one line that feeds into the
processor to instruct the processor, the 64 bit may have only one line for
that statement.
Machine code is fun to write, but you have to do everything for that task,
even place the memory.
Most people use Assemblers that do the memory and allow numonics in stead of
numbers.
John

You would think bythis time all software companies wrote 64 bit
applications from scratch in sted of completely ignoring it or as most
companies did for a long time just change a few strings of code to
make it 64 bit compatible. I only use the default jaws voice, never
really tryed any other voices so I'll be fine.

If you are running any software that is labelled as being 64 bit then
your computer is a 64 bit system. 64 bit systems can still run 32
bit programs but 32 bit systems can not run 64 bit programs.

For awhile many computer makers were shipping 64 bit hardware with 32
bit operating systems, in which case nearly all of the extra
functionality the hardware offered was wasted. Thankfully that
practice seems to be going to the wayside.

There is a link for making the site my homepage and I did what it said but no luck.

When I go to i.e. 8 it says page cannot be found.

Thanks,

David

Hello,
My computer came with IE9 installed as default so I had to reinstall IE8 to
work with Jaws 11. I'm not having any problem except with the I'm feeling
lucky button.
The more annoying problems are with the alt tabbing and the ctrl arrow keys
and the subject line and contact fields.
Thanks,

Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) by default is 32 bit, you have to hunt
around in the Windows start menu to get to the 64 bit version of IE, so you
are probably not using it.

Jaws11 just plain does not work well with Windows 7 64 bit on some systems.

You only hope is probably to wait to upgrade to Jaws13. Sorry!

You may wish to consider re-installing Jaws11 as a last resort, but that is
not very likely to solve any problem
Thanks,

In general there are few, if any, performance benefits from using 64 bit
applications in and of themselves. The main benefit to 64 bit, given the
current Microsoft architecture, is that you can use more than 4GB of RAM
(memory). This is useful if you certain resource-intensive applications,
such as graphics programs, database applications, etc., or are a developer.

Please note that the "Home Basic" version of Windows 7 64 bit only supports
up to 8GB RAM, to use more you need "Home Premium" or to go over 16GB, any
of "Professional", "Ultimate", or "Enterprise" versions.

Hello,
I've not installed anything from windows recently. I'm on a laptop and I'm
not quite sure how to change resolution. I'm not sure if I have IE for 32
or
64 bit, didn't know there was more than one although if it did ask me I
would've chosen 64.
I'm trying to get Jaws 13, but it's probably not going to be for a while.
This laptop is new as of Christmas and I haven't changed the hardware at
all.

Subject: Best setup of Miranda for using with JAWS and accessibility problemswith Facebook Chat


Hi everyone,

First of all I have big problems when I log on Facebook and will use the
Facebook Chat.

JAWS will only read my own name if I press the letter "l" for lists, and
find the list where I earlier could see the friends there was online. I have
checked with a sighted person, and she can see the names on my friends, so I
thing that Facebook has problems with the accessibility!

Therefore:
1. What chat client is the best for JAWS-users, if I will use the Facebook
Chat?

I have tried to installed Miranda, and therefore I will ask how I make the
best setup if Miranda, if I will use Miranda with JAWS?

I using JAWS 11, 12 and 13.

Very thanks for the answers.

Regards,
Anders

Make sure you use a scheme that tells attributes; all possible restore

Good Day: You can make a System Restore using Jaws. Go to the start
menu and arrow to all programs and press the enter key. After you are
in all programs arrow until you find accessories and press enter. The
next step is to arrow or press the letter s untill you come to system
and press the enter key again. After you are in the system option arrow
to system restore or restore depending upon which Windows System you are
using and press the enter key. After you are at the System Restore you
will have options as to how far back you wish to restore your computer.
If your problem just started I'd probably pick the first option. Once
you have started the computer through this process you will not be able
to use it for sometime until it has completely run through it's
acctions. Make sure you do not turn the computer off until it is
complete or it will back where it is right now. Good luck.

Hi! I was getting error messages when I was trying to open mail in
Outlook Express this morning, and when I closed the program and tried
to open it I was no longer to even do that. I'm wondering how to do a
system restore using JAWS because I seem to recall having a great
amount of trouble doing this independently many years ago. If it's
possible to do a system restore using JAWS independently, could
someone please tell me how to go about doing this? I was just telling
someone yesterday that I ruin everything I touch. I was only joking,
but maybe I was more right than I realized. (Sigh!)

Re: uninstalling internet 9

epierce@...
 

Sorry if this was already answered.

Standard removal of an unwanted, "new" version of Internet Explorer is via Control Panel > Programs

The method is documented here:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/how-do-i-install-or-uninstall-internet-explorer-9

For difficult cases where the standard un-installation does not work, see:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2579295


fyi: Microsoft makes available "IE Blockers" when they release a given new version of Internet Explorer.

If you type "IE9 blocker" into google, it will take you to the microsoft web page where you can download the IE9 blocker.

Re: page number of PDF

Hi Ngoc Ly,

Well, you are doing a damn sight better than I am with Windows7! LOL LOL

I have gotten Adobe so screwed up on my Widows7 Os that I think I may have
to uninstall it & reinstall! Good thing I don't use Widows7 very much.
Hang on to the settings that made Adobe work for you, because I think I'll
be needing some help! LOL LOL

Widows7, what a royal pain in the a**! Take care.

dear friend,

I am using window 7 with jaw 12. I followed your steps then now jaws says
page number when I press insert+pagedown. it only says the page number
without the propotion of current page number on total page number.
When I press ctrl+home, the cursor moves to the first line of current page
but not the first line of first page. Similar, ctrl+end move cursor to the
last line of current page.

ctrl+page up move to preview and ctrl+pagedown move to next... they work
as
you said.

Insert+down arrow say all from cursor to the end of the page. Then I have
to
press ctrl+pagedown to move to next page then insert+down arrow again.

What should I do so that my pdf file may work like you said?

Thank you very much. Your experiences are very helpful

Hi Ngoc Ly
,

To have the page number read by using the Insert + page down keystroke,
do
the following;
1. While in a open PDF document press Alt + V, for the view menu.
2. Arrow down to page display sub-menu & press enter.
3. Arrow down to, Enable Scrolling, & press enter to check this box.

This is what I did in Adobe 10 latest to get the page number to be
announced
when invoking the Insert + page down keystroke. When you use this
keystroke, the first thing you'll hear when pressing this keystroke is 2
numbers, i.e., 10 / 175. This means you are on page 10 of 175 pages.
Also,
Control + page up, is prior page & Control + page down, is next page.

Iam using these keystrokes running XP, Jaws13.0.638, & Adobe X / 10
latest.
Hope this helps. Take care.
Mike

Hi,

once you open a PDF file, press ctrl+shift+N. whatever number will
appear in the dialogue, that is your current page number. i think at
the same time, your screen reader tells you how many pages are there.
