Hello Madison,

Sorry, I didn't know you were also in Canada. You can't buy directly from Vispero and as far as I know the subscription based model is not yet available here.
Where abouts are you in Canada? If you like send me a message off-list to sieghard@outlook.com, in the meantime let me check where I last bought my SMA, can't remember just now what the place was called.

I'm in Canada too, so what model do you use? Can we still buy from Visparo, or do we have to go to a Canadian dealer?

Hello Madison,

As I said in my previous email, you have to go into Edge settings and disable some of the options regarding the automatic saving of passwords, predictive filling of search fields and so on.
I just tried in both the Edge address bar and in the search field on Google.com and I had no issues with Jaws 2021 letting me navigate whatever I had typed or what was in the address field by word or character and backspacing would read each character I was deleting.
You will most likely soon get the Windows 10 20H2 update since it seems you are a year behind and skipped Windows 10 Version 2004 this spring and since Microsoft now discontinues support for older Windows 10 versions fairly quickly, it is definitely in your best interest to keep Windows 10 up to date and with these latest versions f Windows Jaws 2018 just won't cut it any more or at least it will result in more and more inssues.
I think the subscription option would be best for you since you can get a subscription without having to pay any catch-up fees, if you wanted to upgrade to Jaws 2021 you would have to find out exactly how much that would cost from Vispero, but I think you are basically looking at two SMA's, one for Jaws 2019 and 2020 and the second to give you the update to Jaws 2021 and this one would also then cover Jaws 2022 next year. However, if you start the subscription all you ever have to worry is paying your $90 a year, not sure if you can also pay monthly since I'm in Canada where the subscription based model is not yet offered.

Best regards,
Sieghard

This is not an email issue, only a Edge issue. I just worry that even after upgrading that I'll still have these issues, can anyone tell me with certainty that upgrading will fix these issues? If no one can tell me then it's not worth spending a bunch of money to upgrade if there's the potencial that I'll still have the same problems.

Madison,

I wonder if this happens after you've been working with JAWS for a while. Ever since installing JAWS 2021, I've experienced problems like this, which I didn't with JAWS 2020. Don't worry, I haven't forgotten you're using 2018. My solution has been to safe the draft of the email, assuming I've started it, and then to close and reopen JAWS. Obviously, a workaround, but perhaps you could try and see if it does the job until you're able to upgrade.

As you clearly realize, you'd be advised to upgrade your JAWS when you can afford to.

Note that Edge isn't an email program; it's a browser. Can you tell which email program you're actually using?

Hi all,
I don't know if there's any way to fix these issues (other then upgrading which isn't happening right now), but I really hope there is. Anyway, when I type in an edit field (or whatever they called) in Edge I can't go back and read what I've written and if I erase a character Jaws just says blank so I don't know what I've erased. Also after I've input my email in a site it saves it, and even when I try and type a new email it just fills in the box with my email so when I type a new email address it sticks my email in there. So, are there any settings within either Edge or Jaws that I can change to fix any of these problems? If there's a setting that can be changed so that Edge never saves my email and I have to type in my email address everytime I log in or do anything on any site, I don't care, it's a small price to pay. I'm using Jaws 2018, the latest Edge, and Windows 10 version 1909. I really hope that there's something I can do to fix these issues, as they're driving me crazy. Look forward to any help/suggestions anyone can provide me!! Thanks Madison

moderated Re: Eloquence reading playback information

Leo
 

hi Mike, thank you for replying, but reading your response, I have just realized I didn't gave all the information,

the real problem is that eloquence and vocalizer announce the playback information in a different way,

while vocalizer verbalizes, one hour, twenty five minutes, and 10 seconds, eloquence says, one, 25, 10.

So, what I really want is to have eloquence verbalizing this playback info in the same way vocalizer does it, but I don't know if such a thing is even possible...

Edge, like most modern web browsers, can synchronize your settings (among other things like browsing history, etc.) to the cloud (in this case associated with your Microsoft Account).

Sync functions require you to go through the process of logging in to the sync account associated with the given browser.  In the case of MS-Edge, you can hit ALT to throw focus to its menu button, then hit left arrow to get to the Not Syncing button, expand it, and down arrow to the Turn on sync button, which will walk you through setting up the synchronization to the cloud.  The use of the Sync function is entirely optional.  I don't happen to use it with Edge myself, though I do with Chrome and Firefox.

When I had Chrome as my default browser, the minute I opened it my home page would pop up right away.  When I get into Microsoft Edge I find it doesn’t.  Instead, the address bar pops up.  I got into Settings, found Appearance in the Treeview, checked the Show Home page button.  I indicated I wanted Facebook to be my home page and saved the Setting, but Facebook is not popping up when I start up Edge after having closed it out.

Interesting.  I never run practically any program with the screen other than maximized.  I'll have things like File Explorer or Search Everything not maximized, but web browsers are always maximized.

When I did a "restore down" it did cause a "hamburger stack" menu button to appear so that you can get to the other tabs besides profile.

What's even more interesting is this behavior is not present in Edge Dev build, which is what I generally use.  All Settings tabs stay visible even when not maximized.  I wonder if the behavior is going to be changing in production Edge in the coming months?

David, I don’t know if the assistive devices program is across Canada. It is definitely in Ontario.

Every five years you can get a computer assessment done at the CNIB. 

I get my computer assessment done at the University of Waterloo just because I like them and I’ve been going to them since I was a kid.

Once you get your assessment done, they give you some forms to sign, you send these forms off to the assistive devices program, they return them to you with approval, you buy your computer, you send them the receipt, and they refund you the money.

The program is not as good as it used to be but it still exists.

You are entitled to a computer and jaws every five years.

They can also provide you with a list of assistive devices program vendors. You can take your forms to one of these vendors and they will handle everything for you. Meaning you don’t have to buy anything and wait for a refund. They will take your forms and give you your computer and jaws, and you’re done.

Hi there,

I am also in Canada, and recently had to deal with this issue. You do not have to buy a new version of jaws you can upgrade. It is cheaper to upgrade then to buy the new version. If you are on jaws 18 and want to upgrade to jaws 21 and you bypass the upgrades to jaws 19 and jaws 20 then yes you will have to purchase A whole new version which costs $1030 Canadian. If you want to upgrade you can upgrade to 2019 2020, 2021, and have a license for 2022 to upgrade for $480 Canadian plus taxes if you are not registered with the CNIB. If you’re registered with CNIB you will not have to pay taxes.

You cannot purchase from Freedom Scientific there is a Canadian number. Their telephone number is

 

 1 (800) 665-3005

Also, and significantly, I cannot find the cookie settings.  When I get into the Settings and More menu I arrow down to settings and press the Enter key, go through all the settings, but I see nothing for privacy or for anything that will help me control my cookie settings.  Is there a good Semaritan out there who knows Jesus Christ as Savior and who would be able to help me the way Jesus would?

Once you get your assessment done, they give you some forms to sign, you send these forms off to the assistive devices program, they return them to you with approval, you buy your computer, you send them the receipt, and they refund you the money.

The program is not as good as it used to be but it still exists.

You are entitled to a computer and jaws every five years.

They can also provide you with a list of assistive devices program vendors. You can take your forms to one of these vendors and they will handle everything for you. Meaning you don’t have to buy anything and wait for a refund. They will take your forms and give you your computer and jaws, and you’re done.

Keep in mind too, with any agency you have to go through hoops.  I got my JAWS 19 with SMA paid for but, no computer to put it on. The government worker was sure I could get a lap top to put it on as I did not have one.  I was using my sister’s and, she wanted it back.  I was not aware of the 5 year idea and I belong to the CCB in Canada.  When I did talk to Vispero in the U S, as there is no Canadian # she did not inform me of any program. I will have to look into it.  At my age, I’ve seen it happen too often that if you talk to 2 different people you get 2 different answers.  An example is in the U S you can subscribe annually to JAWS, not so in Canada.

As I told you in my previous message this is the number I called which I provided for you and this is the information they told me. I did call Freedom Scientific in the USA and they confirmed that they do not upgrade or sell no longer to Canadian customers they are the ones who gave me this number. I called this number and this is the information the gentleman gave me.

Also I would like to mention that if you were in Canada you are entitled to jaws every five years through the assistive devices program. In which case you would get a full version of jaws for free if you are eligible.

Hi there,

I am also in Canada, and recently had to deal with this issue. You do not have to buy a new version of jaws you can upgrade. It is cheaper to upgrade then to buy the new version. If you are on jaws 18 and want to upgrade to jaws 21 and you bypass the upgrades to jaws 19 and jaws 20 then yes you will have to purchase A whole new version which costs $1030 Canadian. If you want to upgrade you can upgrade to 2019 2020, 2021, and have a license for 2022 to upgrade for $480 Canadian plus taxes if you are not registered with the CNIB. If you’re registered with CNIB you will not have to pay taxes.

You cannot purchase from Freedom Scientific there is a Canadian number. Their telephone number is

 

 1 (800) 665-3005

    Hi all,
For anyone who lives in Canada, I'm hoping you can help me. My current licence
is good until version 2018, can I just update my licence, or will I have to buy
a whole new licence and copy of Jaws? Can I buy from Freedom Scientific, or do I
have to buy from a Canadian dealer? I really hope someone can help me, as I've
never done this before. Thanks
Madison
