Regarding Silenzio, I have it successfully installed, but keep getting update notices.

 

I click or hit enter on “yes” for the update, but nothing happens, and I get asked about the update again.

 

Does anyone have this issue, and if so, how did you resolve it.

 

Also have trouble understanding while an app like Silenzio needs to be updated in the first place.

Sieghard,

That is not true about requiring I8 chips.

My Dell is running:

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz, 2001 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)

And it just passed the Microsoft Windows 11 health tool.

Here is the message I received after running the tool

This PC can run Windows 11
Great news - this PC meets all the system requirements for Windows 11, and it’s free. We’ll let you know when it’s ready to install.

 

It has TPM 2.0 which if you are running Windows 20h1 build 1943 can be found under Device manager

It is just after Processor, here is the Jaws speech history to help put it in context in Device Manager:

Processors Closed
Security devices Closed
Security devices Opened
1 item
2
Trusted Platform Module 2.0

 

Having said that, there certainly seems to be a minimum processor but I don’t’ read computerese well enough to know if I7 is the minimum, or something earlier, but I3 is likely not going to work.

If it can be changed out, it is probably more costly than buying a new laptop.

You can get the tool here:

You have a seventh generation chip, I3-7020U, at this point only 8th gen chips and above are supported and this is independent from having UEFI as the BIOS mode and secure boot as well as TPM 2.0 which system information does not show, you have to run TPM.msc to see your TPM version. Anyways, even if you have TPM 2.0, the fact that you have a 7th gen CPU remains and that would probably not be anything you can replace in a basic laptop.

Here's a technique for getting the file path from a file using the copy as a path technique JM mentioned.  If you want to know where a file is located in the file system, this technique will do it.  This is helpful when organizing folders and files

Go to the file or folder
Shift + f10 to bring up context menu
press a to select Copy as path
JAWS + space, then c to bring up the clipboard text viewer
then use navigation keys to step through the path name word by word.

File paths will start with a code for the external drive label, like the C:
Folders names are separated by a \

A variation of this technique is to copy the path using the virtual ribbons buttons, which have short cuts alt + h, then c then p

There is a way to verify the paths these techniques produce are correct, if having a verification technique helps your learning.   But I won't get into that here because in my opinion,  MicroSoft could make a more user friendly File explorer.

Hi Marie,

 

A new feature came out in one of the J2020 versions that does this same thing.  Read below for details.

 

Note: The new setting is explained after the 2 emails.
 Original Message

Hi, 

I’m curious why the option to have jaws not cutoff words, is only available when audio ducking is disabled. 

I use audio ducking all the time, but would still love to be able to take advantage of this feature.

Thanks,

Jessica

 

From: Bill White

Hi, Jessica. The reason the new setting in JAWS to keep sound cards awake is not enabled while Audio Ducking is enabled is because, while audio is being
ducked, another application is running which uses the sound card. If another application is using the sound card, that application will usually keep the
sound card awake, independently of JAWS. 

Bill White 

 

 
New Option to Keep Wireless Speakers and Sound Cards from Clipping Speech When JAWS or Fusion Begins Speaking  
Many modern Bluetooth headphones and speakers as well as some onboard sound cards shut down when no audio is received in order to conserve battery. JAWS
now includes a new option, which when enabled, keeps these devices awake by constantly playing silence. You will not hear anything, but your device will
remain active, resulting in more consistent speech. To enable this feature,
open Settings Center (INSERT+6) on the number row, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to
load
the default settings, and search for "Avoid speech cut off when using
Bluetooth headphones or some sound cards."
 
Note: The battery of your headphones/speakers could drain faster if you
choose to turn on this feature. This option is also not available if the
Audio Ducking feature is enabled which lowers the audio volume of programs while
JAWS speaks.
 

 

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

You can also check file path in file properties (alt-enter). However, long pathnames will also be runcated here.

Don’t forget the copy as path option in the context menu that was brought up back in the thread.

Thanks Robin for the helpful description.   Do you have a technique to locate where you are in the file system?  There are two techniques that have come up in this thread. First, Alt + D to the path box, then copy the path to the clipboard, open the clipboard, Insert + space, then C, and then review the path word by word. The upside is the ability to review path name word by word. But the downside is focus is moved and it's several steps. Second, technique was suggested by Alan suggests where we change a setting so the window title is the path name, available to us with one keypress, JAWS + T.  This keeps the focus location, but long paths get truncated in the title.
