Hi Amir. Just a quick question: Did you go to The Seeing Eye a number of years ago? I was in a class with someone there named Amir. Just curious.

 

I don’t want to take up time on this list. If you wish to email me (to answer my curiosity), my email address is shirleytracy16@...

 

Thanks.

hi everyone 

Yes I have a similar issue. if I loose focus with Jaws I do the following: 
Alt plus Tab and go to another window. 

If that does not work I use the run command Described earlier. 

sometimes I use norator that always wakes up the sleeping jaws.

Hi All,

 

I am not exactly sure how to describe this, but I will give it a go. I am running Windows 10 and JAWS 2021 – the issue isn’t specific to any program. It seems that after I have been working for a while on my laptop – for the morning – JAWS starts to get a bit sluggish by times. It is slow to respond when I press a key, and it is kind of intermittent. I also notice, at the same time that the sound is less sharp – I’m really not sure if that is at all helpful.

 

If I shut down and restart it seems to go away until a few hours later.

 

Any ideas?

Hi, the subject didn't make any sense and I almost deleted it. Even if it is not technically correct spelling things so jaws says it in an understandable way is helpful.

Cynthia,

 

I have a similar experience with my PC using Win10 and JAWS 2021. The fastest way I’ve found to get JAWS going again is to bring up Narrator with control-Windows-key-enter. Narrator speaks, and so does JAWS. I close Narrator wit the same key sequence, and JAWS is once again off to the races.

 

I have no idea why this works, but when I posted about this behavior the last time, several people reported a similar experience.

 

When things get really bad, I revert to JAWS 2020.

Hi,

  Wondering if this may be an issue with your laptop that is affecting JAWS performance?

Some areas to consider:

  How much memory do you have and does your ongoing work consume much of the memory?

Not often but at times the computer will not clear a program from memory even after it, the program, is closed.  Your re start of the computer fixes this issue.

Is your laptop being cooled adequately??

Laptops, especially newer, will slow the cpu if temperatures rise. (Thermo throttling )

Thus the performance of JAWS and other programs may be compromised.

  Your issue may indeed be JAWS related however just a couple other ideas.

There is a benefit I grew up sighted. very poor sight but now have no useful sight but some light sensitivity and have had to wear blinders several times over the years in various trainings. It is something I won't forget. It did help me and the instructors all agreed that having to wear them for long term helped them understand what we go through. Thousands of people do it all the time so If one person says it is not worthwhile then I am not to worried about it.

One thing Brian isn't thinking of is that a lot of the people that are being trained are in that first stage of loss. I don't understand why anyone wouldn't do it if they work with VI people.. Maybe they just can't do it...

The benefit for sighted trainers may be that they can keep their job.
I know that in Iowa and Nebraska, if new staff does not succeed their first
three months of training with them on, they lose their job.

Hello,

 

Because Perkidux is a program that requires six-key entry to have JAWS read like you are reading a Word document, you will need to go into the JAWS Setting Center and change the Braille Output to Uncontracted Braille.

 

Let me know if you need further help.

Once I visited my daughter and family after I became totally blind. I was able to find my way around, use the treadmill etc.
After that visit, my 10 year old grandson spent hours going around with a blindfold and a stick he used as a cane. He did many of the things he had seen me do because he wanted to know how I did them and how it felt.

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, Cynthia. This is not a fix for the problem, but it is a less radical method of restoring JAWS to better performance.

 

Rather than shutting down the computer,

 

1. Press JAWS key plus F4, and if you are asked if you want to quit JAWS, click Yes.

2. Restart JAWS by either going to the desktop and pressing the letter J, or open the "run" dialog with Windows key plus the letter R, and type JAWS2021 and press ENTER.

 

This will allow you to get JAWS working again without having to leave any tasks you may be performing.

Hi All,

 

I am not exactly sure how to describe this, but I will give it a go. I am running Windows 10 and JAWS 2021 – the issue isn’t specific to any program. It seems that after I have been working for a while on my laptop – for the morning – JAWS starts to get a bit sluggish by times. It is slow to respond when I press a key, and it is kind of intermittent. I also notice, at the same time that the sound is less sharp – I’m really not sure if that is at all helpful.

 

If I shut down and restart it seems to go away until a few hours later.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

 

Cynthia

I would suggest running a Jaws Repair and then if the problem persists, run a repair on Office 365. I would do an online repair of Office as it’s more thorough than a quick repair. It wil take longer, but no more than 30 minutes. Good luck.

HI List,

Greetings from SA.  Has any one experienced the following issues with JAWS 2021 and office 365, mainly using outlook.

When trying to compose a message, or arrow through my inbox, or use the address book, Jaws tends to freeze for no reason, and I have to wait a minute or so, or alt tab around for it to respond again.  This is running on my work laptop, with office 365, and the latest build of windows 10.

Also, some times when opening an email, it will only read table coordinates, and not the contents of the email.  Any advice will be highly appreciated.  So I’ve reverted back to JAWS 2020 for the meantime.

And JAWS appears to be very slow at times, not sure if its because of all the extra background and security policies running as well.

 

Warm Regards

Mark

moderated JAWS getting sluggish/cutting out?

Cynthia Bruce
 

Hi All,

 

I am not exactly sure how to describe this, but I will give it a go. I am running Windows 10 and JAWS 2021 – the issue isn’t specific to any program. It seems that after I have been working for a while on my laptop – for the morning – JAWS starts to get a bit sluggish by times. It is slow to respond when I press a key, and it is kind of intermittent. I also notice, at the same time that the sound is less sharp – I’m really not sure if that is at all helpful.

 

If I shut down and restart it seems to go away until a few hours later.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

 

Cynthia


moderated Re: Crosspost: Question about new member

Excuse me, topic drift is not endemic if the group is well moderated.  I don't tolerate off-topic discussion on my Blind Hearing Aid Users list, and neither should the moderator of this list.

I understand that a discussion can sometimes drift off-topic, but the moderator has a responsibility to step in when it does and issue an admonishment.  That's how I run my list, and any member who repeatedly disregards warnings against posting off-topic messages is subject to being placed on mod status.  To be perfectly blunt, the original message in this thread about a new list member really had nothing to do with JAWS itself in the first place, and was only marginally related.

Topic drift is endemic to any group, upon occasion.  And the JAWS group has historically allowed topics that are tangentially related, at best, to JAWS.  This group has never been strictly moderated.

I'd suggest that you, and anyone else who gets frustrated with a given topic on any group, learn how to use the tools that Groups.io gives every user to control the messages they receive to begin with, or keep receiving.  In this case, the Mute this Topic link at the end of every blessed message.
