Hi Ed

 

To clarify, did you try adjusting the on-screen keyboard setting using Ease of Access on the sign in screen, rather than from within Windows?

 

If so, and it’s still coming up, there is another setting that may help.

 

In Windows, go to Settings/Devices/Typing. Tab to “Show the touch keyboard when not in tablet mode and there’s no keyboard attached” and turn this off.

 

If these don’t work, I’m fresh out of ideas…

 

Good luck!

 

Ben

Hi Ed

 

On the sign in screen, you will find an Ease of Access button where you can adjust these settings. Press Windows key + U to bring it straight up.

 

All the best.

Fellow Jawboners –

I have on-screen keyboard turned off in settings. Nevertheless, when I start up my computer it loads prior to the Windows log-in screen. I have to kill the on-screen keyboard with Alt-F4.

How can I keep the on-screen keyboard from loading?

I am using Windows 10 and Jaws 2021 latest editions.

Many thanks for any help eliminating this persistent annoyance.

Hi, Ed. To make sure the on-screen keyboard is turned off completely, try the following,

 

1. Open Control Panel.

2. Press the letter E until Ease of Access is spoken, and press ENTER.

3. Press SHIFT plus TAB once until you hear, Change sign-in settings Link, and press ENTER.

4. Make sure the following two items are not checked,

Type without the keyboard (On-Screen Keyboard) at sign-in

Type without the keyboard (On-Screen Keyboard) after sign-in

5. TAB to Apply, and press ENTER.

6. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

7. This may fix your issue of the on-screen keyboard coming up before or after sign-in.

Hi, Jaffar. I attempted to install the Java runtime environment, 64-bit to enable Java Access Bridge.

When I run the command,

 

java -version

 

I receive the following message,

Hi.  You first need to install the Java runtime environment which you can get from the oracle website.  A search on google will yield you the needed result.  Choose the one for your windows environment, 32 or 64bit.  Install it as you would a normal application or program.  Once installed, go to your command line.

Type the following to see if you got the JRE correctly installed:

java -version

This will tell you if you got the correct version installed.

If it is, then type the following:

jabswitch.exe -enable

You should here the message telling you that the java access bridge has been enabled.  You should then be good to go.  Write me privately if you have any more concerns.  Cheers!

I am currently evaluating a music library grooming application called Songkong. It comes recommended by a specialist retailer of premium audio equipment.

 

When I load, it refers to problems because Access Bridge is not installed. The error reports this, so Windows is telling SongKong that there is a screen reader.

 

Is Access Bridge a tool for software developers, a utility for end-users or something else. If I download it, what happens to Jaws? Anything else that I should be aware of?

 

Thanks in advance.

-
Because anything/everything that's used by a computer as "an active scratch pad," and both cache and cookies are just that, will eventually develop corruptions.

Cookies do this at a much, much, much slower pace (as in it may not happen for years) than cache, which is much more continuously actively being accessed and added to, does.

Some of the most peculiar errors/misbehaviors I've ever encountered with web browsers were the direct result of cache corruption.  Thus, to me, it's simply a matter of good housekeeping to do occasional, regular clearing of cache.  And as Bill and JM have noted, over time, it's possible for a lot of junk to accumulate even in the absence of any corruption in both the browser cookie storage and cache.  Occasionally wiping that slate clean is just a good idea.

Sure they do.

 

It might become necessary to clear cookies or cache (two different things) if certain websites start behaving oddly. Cache makes load times quicker by pulling up stuff that’s already stored in, well, the browser’s cache. Cookies store data for/about your use of various websites. Theyr’e simple text fiels and nothing more, but sites all over the internet use them.

You can accumulate a huge amount of these cookies on your system – we’re talking in the thousands.

So, it’s just good practice to remove them every so often. You will lose some information, potentially, like login data if you have opted to stay logged in to certain websites. So, make sure you have all your passwords stored safely.

I routinely clear browser cache on a routine basis, but seldom clear anything but individual cookies.

Utilities such as BleachBit and System Ninja both make this easy and painless, and for all (or at least most, they handle all the commonly used) browsers in one fell swoop.  The thing is, you need to have the browser closed, but that's easily done.

And, for some reason, when it comes to Chrome specifically, either one of those utilities is much faster than Chrome's own history clearing for cache when "all time" (which is what I want in every case) is selected.

Greetings to all:

 

Today, I downloaded and installed JAWS 2022 Public Beta #2, version 2022.2109.84. If anyone is using this version of the public beta and finds it necessary to use JAWS Tandem to connect to someone for whom help is being provided, be advised that you will have to switch to JAWS 2021. Otherwise, the user whose computer you are trying to access will not be able to connect to your Tandem session—even if the user is typing the meeting identification string correctly.

 

Best wishes,

 

Curtis Chong

Hi Ed

 

On the sign in screen, you will find an Ease of Access button where you can adjust these settings. Press Windows key + U to bring it straight up.

 

All the best.

Subject: On-screen Keyboard Loads at Start-up Despite Being turned Off in Settings

 

Fellow Jawboners –

I have on-screen keyboard turned off in settings. Nevertheless, when I start up my computer it loads prior to the Windows log-in screen. I have to kill the on-screen keyboard with Alt-F4.

How can I keep the on-screen keyboard from loading?

I am using Windows 10 and Jaws 2021 latest editions.

Many thanks for any help eliminating this persistent annoyance.

Hi, Madison. It becomes necessary to clear a cookie or cookies, or the cache when the browser starts running slower, or pages aren't running as expected, or when you want to change a page loading with previously entered data such as login information.

So why is it necessary to clear cash/cookies? Don’t browsers have their own privacy settings?
