I think it can only be considered cross-posting if someone sends the same message to multiple lists in one message, by putting all groups in the CC or BCC fields.
If people cross-post by sending to multiple groups in one message, what can happen is when someone on the list replies, and their eMail client is sending to all, they are then also sending to a list that they may not belong to and will get an error message from that server.
But although annoying, I don't consider it cross-posting if the messages were sent separately.

If its anything like win10 then you can restore back to your previous  operating system  under update and security  > backup

 

Thats if you haven’t deleted any of the previous os backups or later than 10 days

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me how I go back to Windows 10? Is it something that I can do

simply using Jaws and my braille display like when I do a Windows update, or

would I need sighted assistance? Upgrading is generally fairly easy/simple to do

(though I realize that this might not be the case for everyone) and if

downgrading is the same then I'd much rather do that then get help to uninstall

and then re-install Windows 11 because this seems far less risky and

nerve-wracking. Plus I didn't have this issue when using Windows 10 and Jaws

2022 and I know that Windows 10 will be supported for awhile longer. Really hope

someone can help me just as you have all tried to do to fix this issue, I really

appreciate it, I just wish that someone's suggestion had worked and then it

wouldn't have had to come to this. Thanks

Narrator sense one of win10 additions is more than enough to:

Installing windows from scratch

navigating through the windows initial setup

and after the above its good to install other screenreaders from

files, or even with internet browsing and downloading.

BTW, English is not my 1st language, I find win10 tts voice with

really didn't get what you need narrator to do more than the above.

People come on, do you really think NVDA or any other screen reader will
recommend another one?  As for Narrator, I still can’t get it to work
without it not using any terminology close to the left mouse button
or right

mouse button.  Why is that important? Because when I’ve got a newer
computer, it is virtually impossible to use narrator to install any
other

screen reader.  Thus sighted assistance is mandatory.

You may disagree with how they set up the system and keystrokes, but
it not

appropriate to assume they are in some way indifferent to the needs
of the

blind community or actively antagonistic to the blind community.
Especially

when the accusation is made behind their backs.Â

narrator is an option, though it appears oftentimes to have more in

This is not unheard of, Microsoft Word used to have a WordPerfect mode,

I think WindowEyes also had a Jaws KB layout as well.
But the maintainers of NVDA are so anti-Jaws, that they have to do
anything

they can to try to prove that their product is better, to which I
say it is

not.
It does well, and is a good backup, probably better than Narrator,

Hi Chris,
Had you read my original message, you would have seen that I was talking
about their summer sale and not their regular pricing.
In that sale, they discount both SMAs and new licences.

No Chris, the £150 sale price extends to new licences not just to

Fi Billy,
The annual subscription mentioned isn’t available tu us in
the UK as

yet.
However, every summer Sight and Sound reduce the price of JAWS and
other FS

products in line with sales offered by FS. I can’t remember
what the

price of a JAWS licence was this year, but it wasn’t over
£150 I

don’t think.
Hanging on until July/August is likely to be your best bet, though
NVDA as

has already been suggested is a capable screen reader which may well
meet

your needs.
Cheers,
Ed

Hi Madison,

I hate to say "I told you so", but keep this experience in mind whenever the next major update to an operating system comes along, it really is better to wait sometimes and not to be among the first group of people to upgrade especially if as you say you are not comfortable with potentially wiping out your entire system and starting from scratch.

I'm not at all comfortable even attempting to do this, wish there was some other solution that doesn't involve uninstalling and re-installing programs, doing this for Jaws was hard enough using Narrator.

As somebody else pointed out before, since you probably did an in-place upgrade it may just be the time to make sure you have a backup of your data and wipe the system clean and then do a clean install of Windows 11 from a USB installation drive, then reinstall Jaws and Office via your Microsoft 365 subscription and see if this clears up the issues.

It's the same for me - no additional issues with JAWS 2022.

Microsoft Outlook becomes unresponsive and needs to be restarted sometimes when I'm accessing IMAP folders, but that has been an issue for years. Under Windows 11 and JAWS 2022, it does seem to be more responsive in general (save for that long-standing bug).

Hi,

 

I agree, but what throws people is object navigation. Most people don’t use the touch cursor commands in JAWS, which carries out similar functionality either.

 

There’s a lot of good stuff in NVDA, and of course, you can emulate the JAWS cursor, by going into screen review mode in NVDA.

 

Where NVDA is weaker in my view, is Office products such as Outlook. The Email reading experience is not so nice, especially now that JAWS 2022 is lightning fast with Outlook.

 

All the best


Steve

If you cannot figure out narrator, then jaws must be way beyond your capabilities in that case,

 

Its not difficult to get your head around the basics of any screen reader, especially if you have used one before

People come on, do you really think NVDA or any other screen reader will recommend another one?  As for Narrator, I still can’t get it to work without it not using any terminology close to the left mouse button or right mouse button.  Why is that important?  Because when I’ve got a newer computer, it is virtually impossible to use narrator to install any other screen reader.  Thus sighted assistance is mandatory.

Well it's not behind their backs.

I have brought it up on a NVDA list where maintainers monitor and post and they all demonstrated no interest in including Jaws shortcuts as a selection, and state that folks just have to get used to what they think is the best user interface.

I work with and teach dolphin, NaRrator, JAWS, NVDA, and ChromeVox. I just want to point out that most maintainers of NVDA are screenreader users. 

 

You may disagree with how they set up the system and keystrokes, but it not appropriate to assume they are in some way indifferent to the needs of the blind community or actively antagonistic to the blind community. Especially when the accusation is made behind their backs. 

 

That said, there are guides online for migrating from JAWS to NVDA. But also narrator is an option, though it appears oftentimes to have more in common with Mac OS Voiceover than JAWS.

If NVDA maintainers really cared about helping the Blind, then they would include a Jaws layout for those who want it.

This is not unheard of, Microsoft Word used to have a WordPerfect mode, where you could use WP keyboard commands and the WP layout.

I think WindowEyes also had a Jaws KB layout as well.

But the maintainers of NVDA are so anti-Jaws, that they have to do anything they can to try to prove that their product is better, to which I say it is not.

It does well, and is a good backup, probably better than Narrator, but it does not come close to JFW, and they could do a lot better to make it easier to recruit Jaws users.

If you can't afford JAWS, you can still use it in 40 min mode. Or get NVDA, it is Free and is a  great screen reader and there are tutorials to help you migrate from JAWS to NVDA.
