I did not know it even existed. I tend to stay away from voice assistive things
if at all possible. I've had some interesting experiences with the dictate
function on my iPhone as in saying , "Thrift store. " It came out something
entirely different which is not suitable for this list. I've never enabled
"sharky" So, don't understand Madison why it would be turned on in the first

Hi all,
On the topic of the Jaws voice assistant, can anyone tell me how to get rid of
it or turn it off? I tried going into utilities and I thought I'd turned it
off, but it would seem not, as it still goes off even though I've never said
any wake word to it ever. It's annoying and I'd like to have it turned off
permanently if at all possible. I'm running the latest build of Jaws 2021 and
Windows 10 2004.
Thanks
Madison

Hello everyone,
 
I am helping a person to learn to use JAWS.  She would like to use Pandora
to listen to music.  She is running JAWS 2021 with Windows 10.  We
downloaded the Pandora App and it appears somewhat usable but has limited
ease of access to the controls.  I am wondering if there is a list of usable
hotkeys for this app, or if there may be a script that I can acquire that
will help her make this more usable?
 
Thanks much for any assistance that you can provide.

I have noticed that in older versions of JAWS, when I would close a program, JAWS would focus on the program or desk top that I hade open.  Now, I get the Lost Focus announcement when closing programs.  Why doesn’t JAWS know where to focus any more?

Jaws uninstall is an all-or-nothing thing on a per-version basis. That
is, you can remove jaws 2021 but leave jaws 2020 (or vise versa) but
not remove the latest jaws 2021 update and go back to the prior
version.

I suspect to go back to a prior version you would need to uninstall
jaws and then use the installer for that prior version and then when
jaws runs say "No" if it asks if you wish to install the latest
update.

I would suggest that before you go to the work of uninstalling that
you re-run the jaws installer (possibly downloading the latest
installer exe from the web if you don't have it handy) and use it to
perform a repair.

Subject: Two questions regarding Jaws 2021.

 

Good afternoon everyone, 

First, how would I go about doing a repair of Jaws 2021,  and can you remove a specific  update.  ,  I’m asking because whenever my computer boots up, I keep getting a lot of lost focus messages. Next, after I type whatever the subject line and tab to the edit field,  it indicates a dash     

Second, In the settings menu under the utilities option,  there isn’t anything about  enabling the  voice assistant.

Thanks in advance

for any and all help advice and suggestions,

Hi Tom,
 
If you're not running Windows 10 you won't get the Voice Asisstant option.  If you're running Windows 7 the Voice Asisstant isn't available.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I hope someone can answer about removing updates, but I am doubtful that can be done.

You can run the .exe file that you used to install Jaws 2021 and you will have an option to repair.

 

For me, the first item under Utilities is the voice assistant.

Are you sure you are on 2021?

 

I thought there was an option about the lost focus messages, but I’m not finding it right now.

 

HTH,

What I find interesting about this is that I turned it off, yet, it still shows up under utilities with all of the features grayed out other than settings and getting started.

But, I do have a microphone on this laptop, so maybe that is the issue?

Open the JAWS settings center by pressing Insert plus 6 on number row, press enter, then do acontrol shiftD to get to default  settings then type voice assistant in the search and it will show up in the results, there you can enable  or disable it.

Hi Richard and T, 

 

What I meant too say, was that when I went into the settings center in the Jaws utility folder, I didn’t see anything about enabling voice assistant.

Well, for me, Voice Assistant is right above Tandem.

Maybe someone who knows much more than I, which is a lot of people, can say if there is somewhere else you have to enable it first?

do you have a microphone on your computer or laptop or one that you can plug-in? If you don't have a microphone maybe it doesn't show up. This is just guessing though. As for removing an update you can't do that the download you have to get from freedom scientific is already updated. If you have an old EXC you can use that and not update but short of that no you can't remove an update.
