Karen Hughes,

You've been a staunch advocate of not updating JAWS and seeking out the
alternatives that are available at no cost, such as NVDA.

After your recent suggestion, I've asked politely if you would highlight the
comparisons between JAWS and NVDA (we know about the price difference) and
give us some perspective, from your experience, as to why it would make
sense to not continue to purchase JAWS upgrades.

Looking back at past messages, I've noticed that you occasionally post in a
sort of "shoot and run" to suggest your opinions on no-cost or low-cost
alternatives to JAWS and FS, but I have failed to see any substantive
information to support your point of view in follow-up messages.

So I throw down the gauntlet, so to speak and ask for you to give us
something to "chew on" with regard using NVDA in lieu of JAWS in the
Enterprise environment.

Re: Enterprise software

Gary King
 

Dave,
I'm afraid that the problem with NVDA and other free solutions is that you don't get the same level of automatic feedback that you do with JAWS. The last time I tried NVDA with Excel, it read the contents of the cells and the cell coordinates, but not the column and row titles. That was a show-stopper for me.

For people who can't afford a commercial screen reader and who are using a computer at home for entertainment, a free screen reader will suffice, but if they want to be productive on the job, they will have to pay the price.

I am experiencing this very problem, at the moment.
Seven weeks on my new job, and the accessibility component is a major
source of frustration for me.
All of the powers that be, within the agency, know my issues because I
have been very vocal about them, but they don't get it.
Unless they're physically affected by it, it will not have the same impact
on them. To say that I am frustrated, at this point, is probably an
understatement.
If I'd have known that there were going to be all of these issues, I
surely would have thought twice about taking this position.
I was under the impression that they'd dealt with a person who was blind
in the past and therefore had knowledge of accessibility issues, regarding
screen reading software.

In some cases, large, expensive enterprise software packages that have

Trying to fix a video intercept problem with JAWS running never worked for me. I found that I had to shut down JAWS and use either Narrator or NVDA to reinstall the Video Intercept.

Something must not be installed correctly then, because we use the Control Alt plus Delete method to log in.
However, prior to entering this key command, I am given the prompt that Jaws for Windows is ready.
But, I do not know when I can enter the Control Alt Delete command.
And, when I am told to, by a sighted person, I still cannot tab through the user name, password and enter fields.

JAWS 13 does work with Windows XP, except the login screen. If you want
access during the login screen you have to have Windows Vista or windows 7.
I would recommend they uninstall JAWS completely and make sure that all
Freedom scientific folders are taken out of the program files on the local
drive. It may require a local installation because some components might
need registering with the operating system such as DLL files. A remote
install just dumping files into the program files directory will not work.
The video intercept needs to be installed before JAWS is installed, not the
other way around.
Hope this helps,

Video Intercept error. It prompts us to either view, install or uninstall

Re: Jaws 13 and Windows XP Pro?

Claudia,
I agree with others on the list who have suggested that you contact your IT people and ask them to get help from Freedom Scientific with your problems. As long as you have the Pro version of JAWS, it should work and should speak the log-on screen if it is set to start automatically. I'm not sure they can install it in the way they are attempting to do it though. In any case, I don't think the problems will be solved without help from FS.

Re: Enterprise software

Dave...
 

No, hadn't given it a moment's thought. What are its advantages over JAWS,
besides the price? Does it have on-line and telephone support, for example?
How does it do with MS-Excel, which is the second-most important application
in my job? How does it work with Outlook 2007? Give us your experiences.

I am experiencing this very problem, at the moment.
Seven weeks on my new job, and the accessibility component is a major
source of frustration for me.
All of the powers that be, within the agency, know my issues because I
have been very vocal about them, but they don't get it.
Unless they're physically affected by it, it will not have the same impact
on them. To say that I am frustrated, at this point, is probably an
understatement.
If I'd have known that there were going to be all of these issues, I
surely would have thought twice about taking this position.
I was under the impression that they'd dealt with a person who was blind

screen reading software.

JAWS 13 does work with Windows XP, except the login screen. If you want

I would recommend they uninstall JAWS completely and make sure that all
Freedom scientific folders are taken out of the program files on the local
drive. It may require a local installation because some components might
need registering with the operating system such as DLL files. A remote
install just dumping files into the program files directory will not work.
The video intercept needs to be installed before JAWS is installed, not

Claudia,

I use JAWS 13 and XP Pro. For me, as Dave Carlson says, the log-in screen
is spoken by JAWS. However, I know that being part of a network can affect
JAWS' behavior. I have a faint recollection that at some point during my
office life, I had to use other clues to determine when to type in my user
name and network password. I remember listening for the floppy drive to
click in. If there was a lot of noise around, I would rest the tips of my
fingers on the computer in order to feel the change. I doubt you have a
floppy drive, but try to find other clues about the progress of the
computer's booting-up process. It could be that the computer goes quiet,
having done what it can until you trigger the next stage by signing in.

As Dave also suggested, you should encourage your tech staff to contact FS.
You might even call FS yourself to ask if they'd be willing to take the
initiative of contacting your tech people. Be sure to have a name and
contact info ready at hand. FS should be able to help resolve the video
intercept problem you're experiencing. If the particular FS rep you speak to
isn't helpful, ask for Bryan Carver. (This is how he spells his name.) In my
experience and that of others, he is an effective advocate for the workplace
needs of FS's customers.

What model of PC do you have at work?

I had several fights with the tech people at my former office, so I more
than understand your frustration. However, I'm confident you will find the
particular problems you're having can and will be fixed. It's a terrible way
to start a new job, but I hope you will outlast this stage so that you can
soon focus on the work itself.

Re: Jaws 13 and Windows XP Pro?

Tom Lange
 

Hi,
At my previous job, all of our machines were XP Pro, all networked, and all, with the exception of a couple that were used by upper management, running JAWS.

JAWS was installed locally on each machine rather than pushed across the network, though it used a network license. On all of these machines, the login window was completely accessible.

So, if I were you, I'd have one of your company's I.T. guys pay you a visit, completely uninstall JAWS, including shared components, reinstall JAWS and, I might add, do all of this while the I.T. guy has Freedom tech support on the phone to assist with such matters as the video intercept issue if it arises.

Something must not be installed correctly then, because we use the Control Alt plus Delete method to log in.
However, prior to entering this key command, I am given the prompt that Jaws for Windows is ready.
But, I do not know when I can enter the Control Alt Delete command.
And, when I am told to, by a sighted person, I still cannot tab through the user name, password and enter fields.

JAWS 13 does work with Windows XP, except the login screen. If you want
access during the login screen you have to have Windows Vista or windows 7.
I would recommend they uninstall JAWS completely and make sure that all
Freedom scientific folders are taken out of the program files on the local
drive. It may require a local installation because some components might
need registering with the operating system such as DLL files. A remote
install just dumping files into the program files directory will not work.
The video intercept needs to be installed before JAWS is installed, not the
other way around.
Hope this helps,
John

Hi,

Does Jaws 13 work with Windows XP Pro?
Also, my employer just installed Jaws 13 on a Dell laptop for me, but
everytime I shut the computer down and turn it back on, we get the Jaws
Video Intercept error. It prompts us to either view, install or uninstall
this component. Of course, we have attempted installation several times,
without success.
The installation of the Jaws wsotware is being done remotely, by the IT
people downstate.
Not sure how to proceed with this.

We also have to log into the system, with our user name and password, but
Jaws does not speak during this process, and I don't know how to remedy this
either.

Claudia

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

I haven't a clue on the network issues, but I can say that 13 works with
XP Pro and Media Center editions (the latter is just Pro with a fancy
overlay). I used it here for several weeks before going to 7, and I'm
using it at home.
