Hi,

There could be a number of issues and the only way is that your friend give much more information.

I'd also be willing to take a look via tandam if the person is able to allow for a tandam session and lives in the United States. I would need a phone number and best time to contact the individual. If you or the person wants my help contact me privately off list and I can make arrangements to tandam.

Subject: JAWS sluggish on Dell Inspiron desktop machine

Hello,
I have a friend who uses JAWS2020 on a Dell inspiron desktop. They report that JAWS is running sluggish on the machine. The computer has
16 gigs of ram and they just purchased it in September of 2020 issue has been going on since that time.
I saw a message about this topic and someone suggested disabling Waymax audio from the start up tab which I suggested to my friend but they would prefer not to disable this since my understanding of this causes the headphone jack not to work and I believe that they have speakers that are connected to the tower.
Are there any other solutions to this issue? I was going to suggest that they get an external sound card but I don't know that that would alleviate the issue as I don't foresee there being any load from JAWS on the machine.
Thank you in advance for any responses.

Vispero is willing to make deals with people that have fallen behind on their SMA's.  I recently upgraded someone from Jaws 15 to Jaws 2020 for around $250, but you have to call and ask for help with the upgrade.

Hi, Angel. Yes, you can still buy an SMA, even if your current version of JAWS is far in arears. This would cost approximately $700, not a thousand dollars. This is what I said in a previous message. As long as I can keep up with my SMA's, I'll never change to a prescription from owning the current version.

He does not need to buy it all over again, and he can stay with his Jaws 17 but it won’t serve him well if he is going to use Windows 10.

 

He has a perpetual license now.

 

But, he did not keep up with the Software Maintenance Agreements, SMA.

So, he would have to pay for the licenses to bring him current; which could be several hundred dollars, then he could stop with 2021 until it became out of date in a few years and then catch up again; or buy the licenses and the SMA and keep updating each year at the license renewal price.

 

Or, plan on just starting the annual subscription now at around $100 per year. 

 

It all dpeneds on whether he really needs Jaws in its full capacity.

He might find that NVDA would be enough for him if he has been limping along with Jaws 17 all this time.

Go to Settings in Edge, then in the Settings Category treeview you should be already on the first tab, Profiles.

Go to where this section starts, it's a heading 2 called "Your Profile".

The first part talks about your profile, manage account and sync. After this you have      buttons for "Personal Info", "Passwords" and "Payment info". Activate each of them and turn them off if you don't want Edge to remember or fill any data.

Thanks Udo. I have noticed what you mean. Sometimes it will work, and then the very next time it won't. I've even checked the drop location, and it will still be correct. Other times the drop location has moved a bit in the APP.

I finally found the correct JAWS key combinations to accomplish the task, and it seems to be working consistently. So hopefully it will continue to work. Thanks for the info.

Hi Aaron,

beside your decision to update JAWS here are two things about Drag & Drop and scripting.

To my opinion Drag & Drop is sometimes hard to handle especially by using scripting. Sometimes it's necessary to drag the object right onto another object, sometimes you need to drag the object slightly before or slightly after an object. Sometimes it's possible to release the mouse and the object gets dropped and sometimes you need to press enter key to end the drop. So to find out what to do with drag & drop you need sometimes sighted help who described exactly where the cursor should be placed. In writing a JAWS script to do this work for you sometimes you need to add some extra pixels before or after or press enter key to finish the drop down.

Speaking of scripting in different JAWS versions: I'm using JAWS a long time and did a lot of scripting and I've never discovered problems in using my old scripts in new versions. All the old scripting key words still exists in newer JAWS versions and to verify this you can look up the JAWS functions you are using in your scripts in FSDN.chm, the help file from FS with all available JAWS functions (except UIA stuff).

All the best
Udo

Hi, Aaron. I feel the same way. If you buy the $90 per year JAWS subscription, and are unable to pay for your next year, within about a month, you will
see your JAWS program revert to 40-minute mode. For this reason, I continue to by the 2-year SMA. This way, even if my JAWS is out of date, I still have
a functioning license for it.

Good idea.

I just got approval at work to purchase the commercial license, so I won't have to deal with the subscription for now. Thanks.

Hello Aaron,

If you are in the US and have the option to buy Jaws via the subscription model this would be the way to go. I have been a Jaws user since the days of DOS in 1989 and in my over 30 years of using computers I rarely find it pays to not upgrade to whatever is the latest version of a program. If you would like to upgrade from Jaws 17 and you really should, in fact, I think with any of the latest Windows 10 versions it's a must, then it would probably cost a lot of money to do so in the conventional way. Then you really should buy your SMA every two years because once again I just don't think it's worth falling behind with Jaws given how quickly things change on the web and with Windows these days, and in the end the difference between your SMA price every two years and the annual subscription is quite minor.
The best thing to do here would be to simply call Vispero and tell them your situation and ask for what it would cost to upgrade the old way and then also discuss the subscription. Keep in mind that subscriptions is where things are going with many programs/applications and you can't necessary expect things to be the way they were 10 or 20 years ago; it's a different world.

OK. So I'm just now looking in to upgrading. I see that now JAWS is a subscription service for home use. I'm trying to decide how I feel about that. My initial reaction is that I would really like to just purchase once and own it. what are your thoughts about that?

Hello. I'm using JAWS17 in Windows10, in a game that is created
using HTML & JavaScript, and the game doesn't run in a browser, but it
is a Chrome legacy window. When I place my Jaws cursor on an item,
then lock the left mouse button with, Jaws Key + slash, I am not able
to navigate to the point in which I need to drop the item. I've tried
switching to the PC cursor, but still nothing. I can move with, shift
+ Alt, then arrow to the spot, but when I then unlock the left mouse
button, the item was not moved. I have also written a Script that
locks the left mouse button, and jumps to the coordinates that I need,
then I unlock the button myself. This script works but not very often. Any help would be appreciated.

Udo Egner-Walter
 

Hi Aaron, 

beside your decision to update JAWS here are two things about Drag & Drop and scripting. 

To my opinion Drag & Drop is sometimes hard to handle especially by using scripting. Sometimes it's necessary to drag the object right onto another object, sometimes you need to drag the object slightly before or slightly after an object. Sometimes it's possible to release the mouse and the object gets dropped and sometimes you need to press enter key to end the drop. So to find out what to do with drag & drop you need sometimes sighted help who described exactly where the cursor should be placed. In writing a JAWS script to do this work for you sometimes you need to add some extra pixels before or after or press enter key to finish the drop down. 

Speaking of scripting in different JAWS versions: I'm using JAWS a long time and did a lot of scripting and I've never discovered problems in using my old scripts in new versions. All the old scripting key words still exists in newer JAWS versions and to verify this you can look up the JAWS functions you are using in your scripts in FSDN.chm, the help file from FS with all available JAWS functions (except UIA stuff). 

All the best
Udo

Hi, Aaron. I feel the same way. If you buy the $90 per year JAWS subscription, and are unable to pay for your next year, within about a month, you will see your JAWS program revert to 40-minute mode. For this reason, I continue to by the 2-year SMA. This way, even if my JAWS is out of date, I still have a functioning license for it.

You should have mentioned before that you are using an out-of-support version of Outlook which to my knowledge isn't even officially compatible with Windows 10 and which would help people who reply to have a better idea why your experience is different.
I think you will find that in any recent version of Office like 2016, 2019 or the one you get with Microsoft 365 this works as it should.

Madison,
I have done this a bit with contacts on my work computer to move them to my personal. I open a new email message on the computer where the contacts are located and address the email to myself. I put focus in the body of the message. I then open my Contacts. I navigate to each contact I want to copy over and, without actually opening the contact, I do a control c to copy it. Then I go to the open email message and hit Control v to paste it. I do as many of these as I need, then send the email to myself. When I open the email on the other computer, the message is there with each contact as a separate attachment. I think I just selected all and pasted them with Control v into my contacts. Likewise, you can open each contact attachment and, make any needed edits, and save it.

Hi all,
I was looking at stuff on my old laptop today and noticed that I have a few Outlook contacts on my old computer that aren't in my contacts on this laptop.
So I'm wondering, is there any way to get specific contacts from my contacts on my old computer to my list on this computer? I know how to do a Outlook backup and import it (though I've never done it from one computer to another), but most of the contacts are the same on both computers so I don't really want to do that because then I'd have duplicates and I don't want that. I don't even know why these particular contacts don't show up in my contacts on this computer, a backup was imported, so I don't know if I accidentally deleted them or what happened. My old computer is running Outlook 2013, Windows 7 and the latest vertion of Jaws and this computer is running the latest versions of Office 365, Jaws and Windows 10. Really hope there's a way to do this as I'd really like to have these missing contacts on this computer as I rarely use my old one. Look forward to any suggestions anyone might have. Thanks Madison

Good morning everyone,

 

 

When pressing the Jaws key and the S Key together,  It says none,   highlighted and all, which would be the best option  too set any of these options to?

Go to Settings in Edge, then in the Settings Category treeview you should be already on the first tab, Profiles.

Go to where this section starts, it's a heading 2 called "Your Profile".

The first part talks about your profile, manage account and sync. After this you have      buttons for "Personal Info", "Passwords" and "Payment info". Activate each of them and turn them off if you don't want Edge to remember or fill any data.

 

 

Best regards,

I’ve looked on Google and I still can’t seem to get it. Please, can anybody help me stop Edge from taking over my forms and filling them out Edge’s way? ?

 

Usually, I muddle through, but it’s getting frustrating. I’d rather do it myself. Besides, Edge has most of it wrong.

 

Help?

OK. So I'm just now looking in to upgrading. I see that now JAWS is a subscription service for home use. I'm trying to decide how I feel about that. My initial reaction is that I would really like to just purchase once and own it. what are your thoughts about that?

Hi Aaron,

J17 was, for lack of a better term, a throw away version. Vispero was
rewriting Jaws coding and J17 was minus some of the regular little features
that were present in all other Jaws versions. I won't go into all the
details because I'm a dipshit when it comes to the computer lingo crap, but
more knowledgeable members of the list might elaborate more. So, as Randy
suggested try J19, J20 or J21 as a demo and see how it goes.


Stay safe & take care. Mike.

I figured that might be causing me issues. I'm going to look in to getting
an upgrade. I've been reluctant, because I have a lot of Jaws script files
that I would need to convert, but it's probably not as complicated as I
think it is.

Hi Aaron,

I think your biggest issue is the version of Jaws you're running. J17
doesn't work well with Windows 10. I could be wrong, but have you tried a
newer version of Jaws? Preferably J19 or up.

Hello. I'm using JAWS17 in Windows10, in a game that is created using HTML
& JavaScript, and the game doesn't run in a browser, but it is a Chrome
legacy window. When I place my Jaws cursor on an item, then lock the left
mouse button with, Jaws Key + slash, I am not able to navigate to the point
in which I need to drop the item. I've tried switching to the PC cursor, but
still nothing. I can move with, shift + Alt, then arrow to the spot, but
when I then unlock the left mouse button, the item was not moved. I have
also written a Script that locks the left mouse button, and jumps to the
coordinates that I need, then I unlock the button myself. This script works
but not very often. Any help would be appreciated.
