Hi,

 

I always do a clean install for major OS updates, I think it generally improves performance.

 

All the best

I don't think there is necessarily a need for a clean install, you can always do one if you find there are issues, but I would do the in-place upgrade first and if all is well you save yourself a lot of time.

Maddison:

 

I have received an update notice that Windows 11 is available for my computer, however, I was informed, that the download could not go ahead because, I do not have the necessary function turned on in the BIOS. As I have said previously, I am going to wait for at least 6 months to a year, before I upgrade. And, when I do upgrade, I will probably perform a new install of Windows 11.

Glad to know, however I know that Windows 10 eventually won’t be supported anymore and then I’ll have to upgrade so I figure I might as well do it once I get it. Is there any way to find out when my PC might get it?

He seems to think the world will end if he can't run Windows 11. You are of course entirely correct, installing Windows 11 by some sort of hack is probably the worst thing you can do and there is absolutely no reason for it. I still hear of things like File Explorer being fairly sluggish with all screenreaders in Windows 11 and while I am also curious about Windows 11, I am in no particular hurry and have a feeling that once I do maybe install it on the one computer I currently own which says it can run it I will be underwhelmed and find that on a day-to-day bases it will make little difference.

Why would you want to install an unsupported operating system?  My understanding is that if you do, you may not get security updates.  I'd install the latest version of windows 10 and be content, even if you really want 11, you probably don't want it for the first six months, unless you like  using your computer for a door stop instead of a computer.  Leave the first little while to those with spare computers.

Richard, you are correct! Sorry guys, when I went to PBS video every single one I tried to look at said you had to be a member of passport. I’m wondering if the reason I was able to watch Muhammad Ali several weeks ago without getting that message was since it was being broadcast that very weak and hadn’t yet gone onto the list or something? Not sure but sorry I gave misinformation.

I believe the only way you get a passport account is by being a subscriber to PBS. 

I refuse to give them any money in my area because they still do not provide audio description on many things I know have audio description.

This Fall  they have improved, but not yet enough.

moderated J2022 Beta3 Download Link + What's New

Mike B.
 

Hi all,
 
J2022.2110.30 Beta 3 download link + what's new is below.
 
32 & 64 Bit Download Link:
 
 
Enhancements in JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion 2022 Public Beta 3
 
The following is a list of improvements made between Public Beta 2 and Public Beta 3. Note that while many customer-reported enhancements are included
in this release, the following is a list of more notable changes.
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2022 and Fusion 2022 Public Beta 3
list of 9 items
• In JAWS and Fusion, added new Quick Settings options for Outlook 365 that let you turn off the announcements for unread, replied, or forwarded. While
in Outlook 365, press INSERT+V for Quick Settings, and then search for "Indicate" to find the 3 options.
• Addressed a reported issue in Outlook 365 where JAWS was not announcing autocomplete results when typing names into the address fields of a new message.
• When pressing ESC to exit the Sound Cards layer (INSERT+SPACEBAR, V, C), JAWS now plays the sound to indicate you have exited the layer.
• If you configured JAWS to use a different sound card other than the Windows default, resolved an issue where JAWS generated sounds would continue playing
through the Windows default sound card until JAWS was restarted.
• Addressed a reported issue where Settings Center would become unresponsive if you typed a quotation mark in the Search edit box.
• Addressed an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected while navigating by line in Google Docs and you encountered a link spanning multiple lines.
• While the default font size for the Braille and Text Viewers is 20, it is now possible to set the size as low as 16 if needed.
• Resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR, X to launch the Flexible Web wizard was not working as expected in Edge Chromium.
• Added support for Azure Virtual Desktop.
list end
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

In matters of taste, there is no right or wrong, so your choice is absolutely not wrong.

That being said, I'd rather gnaw off my own fingers than have to reconfigure a Windows system I've been using, and customizing, for years.  It's just so much easier to take a system image, including all user data regardless of what it's drive may have been, to have in my back pocket to restore from.  It usually takes me less than an hour, start to finish, to recover from a system image backup.  It takes a lot longer than that to do a fresh install of Windows and then do all the customizations I can recall that I've done as well as reinstall all the programs.  

And having your user data on a separate drive will do you no good if that drive were to fail.  But I presume you are consistently backing up that drive somehow.

There was a time where I separated user data and Windows on separate drives.  But in this age of huge drives, cheap, I don't.  The probability of any drive failing is about equal, and if you're using an SSD you need to be backing it up even more than an HDD (which should absolutely be backed up routinely, too) because when they fail they are beastly expensive to recover any data from if that's necessary.  With backup drives and/or cloud backup storage being so cheap these days, backing up, whether by system image or otherwise, should be a standard part of computer ownership - at least if you care about your data and never want to lose it.  I can assure anyone who uses a computer that they will, eventually, suffer a drive failure.  It may be only once every 20 years, but if you lose everything you'll regret, bitterly, not having bothered to take backups.

I believe that's the limitation of the basic view.
you either go into your address book or contact and send mail from there or just move to standard view.

its not that difficult to use and it pack with a lot of keyboard shortcut.

I used to care more about where I stored things, but with a good imaging program, it just isn't important.  The last time I built a computer, I had a list of two dozen things I had to install and configure.  I'd sure rather use an image program than reinstall windows.  Life is too short.

I absolutely hate, "What is the best . . .," questions about anything because best is really very subjective.

Macrium Reflect is a very good tool, its free version is more than adequate for any home user (and many small business users, thought they cannot use it under the license terms), and I wrote a tutorial about using it with a screen reader:  Using Macrium Reflect Free with a Screen Reader

 


There are very precious few backup and recovery options that are accessible on the recovery side, and those I know about are paid.  I don't even worry about the recovery side as very few people DIY the recovery.  But because the recovery virtually always is in an environment that is not Windows, there's no screen reader support for it, much like there is not for UEFI/BIOS.

But having a backup for anyone to recover from, including yourself with sighted assistance if the need arises, is vastly preferable to losing everything or having to pay hundreds of dollars, minimum, to send a failed HDD out to a data recovery facility.  And at this time recovery fees for SSDs is at least double to triple what it costs to recover a HDD.

I seem to recollect that Control+Enter activates a link. I think you must
have your cursor on the link. And, there may be an option within Word's
settings to enable this.

Subject: question about activating links in a Word document

Hi all,
Not sure if this would be a Jaws or Word question so that's why I'm posting
this on hear.
When I have a Word document with links in it whether that be email addresses
or web addresses is there any way to have them open when I enter on them?
Right now when I try and do this the only thing that happens is that a blank
line gets placed in the document. If there isn't then that's fine I'm simply
curious that's all. Using latest versions of Jaws, Office 365 and Windows
10. Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated as always!! Thanks Madison

I am going from memory, I believe the key combination is

Ctrl plus Alta plus either break or page up.

 

Thanks,abraham

Hi, I thought that when in Remote Desktop you could lock the input Window by using Control+Shift+ the Break key.

That is not obviously the correct key. I cannot find it in the Remote Access help section so I’m now asking nicely if anyone can help me out.

Hi Brian,

 

I also make sure that all my personal files are never on Drive C:. I never back up Windows installations or apps, because resetting Windows is very accessible nowadays, with Narrrator.

 

I’d sooner restore Windows, then reinstall my apps.

 

Just personal, but I have never had to restore a system image.

 

All the best


Steve

I absolutely hate, "What is the best . . .," questions about anything because best is really very subjective.

Macrium Reflect is a very good tool, its free version is more than adequate for any home user (and many small business users, thought they cannot use it under the license terms), and I wrote a tutorial about using it with a screen reader:  Using Macrium Reflect Free with a Screen Reader

 


There are very precious few backup and recovery options that are accessible on the recovery side, and those I know about are paid.  I don't even worry about the recovery side as very few people DIY the recovery.  But because the recovery virtually always is in an environment that is not Windows, there's no screen reader support for it, much like there is not for UEFI/BIOS.

But having a backup for anyone to recover from, including yourself with sighted assistance if the need arises, is vastly preferable to losing everything or having to pay hundreds of dollars, minimum, to send a failed HDD out to a data recovery facility.  And at this time recovery fees for SSDs is at least double to triple what it costs to recover a HDD.

I do not know that you could sync music directly to the music app using dropbox or OneDrive. On Dropbox though you have to play the music  on the Dropbox app. Even if you can sync to the music app, you will need ways to delete them if the music is no longer required.
There are still certain tasks like backing up the entire phone which cannot be done without iTune unless one is willing to pay for iCloud storage.

iTunes on the Mac has been gone for one or two years now.  The iDevicce interacts with Finder and shows up like a external drive.
You can completely manage apps on the device without the need for iTunes and if you use either One Drive or DropBox you can access music files and pull them into the Music app.
I have no idea if Apple plans on pulling iTunes all together, but I can’t imagine that they are going to continue to pour money into an application that solely runs on Windows.
What tasks do you directly need iTunes for today?

Hello,
 
Not sure on this. I did read on a list or web somewhere that Apple was considering discontinuing iTunes in the future? Can anyone validate this? If true they would need to fix the iPhone somehow to allow items to be put on and taken off.

Yes, but just want to know that JFW has no plan to improve its usability with iTune just like how they did with other app?

That's why one has a choice, just as with browsers there might be times when NVDA works better for a particular task than Jaws and vice versa.

Also it seems that NVDA navigates more smoothly in iTunes if compared with JAWS. I tried backing up my iPhone using JAWS on iTunes and it is not as smooth tabbing around the menu compared to if using NVDA.

Well, it is now.  I tried it with nvda, and the menus no longer come up with just alt.

Hi Chris, that doesn’t seem to be the problem in a few versions back. We can press alt and use the left/right arrow to find the desire menu.

Hello.


That isn't jaws problem to fix.  Alt does not bring up the menu in itunes.  If you want the menu, hold alt and press one of the first letter options like f.  You can then arrow down through the file menu, or arrow over to whatever menu you want.

Hi all,
Any  JFW users have the problem of JAWS not announcing the menu in iTune? For example if you press alt key and then the left or right arrow, JAWS will not say file or accounts etc.
I notice this has been happening for quite sometime and there seems to be no fix for it in the 2021 update of JAWS.
