Well, unless the computer is fairly new, like less than three or four years old, you aren't going to have any real choice, it will be windows 10 for you.  Even if it is fairly new, unless it has tpm 2.0 capability, it will still have to be windows 10 to get security updates.  I'm going to wait on 11 until I have someone who needs help with it or there is some significant reason to change.  Two months into a new operating system is just way too soon with windows.

Keith,
Why not go with WIN10 for a while and get used to it again. WIN11 isn't, in my opinion any sort of breakthrough and I plan to use "10" as long as it is supported.
Just my opinion.

Hi all,

 

I downgraded successfully yesterday back to Windows 10 with JAWS. I started by going to Windows update, and then followed prompts until I found the one to Go Back.

I was having three problems with Windows 11, regardless of which screen reader I used.

  1. I could not navigate the task bar with first letter or number navigation.
  2. No PDF files were readable with any screen reader. The text was there, because I could copy it to the clipboard and then paste it into a Word doc, but I could not read it with Adobe.
  3. I could not read the options in the user access control when I went to do something that required me to select yes or no.  Yes, I know about alt-y and that did work.

 

Oh, there was a fourth thing.  I tried the voice typing mode, and it was very impressive, but then it stopped working.  I eventually got Microsoft support on the phone, and they discovered a pop-up that I had no awareness of.

Hello, I'm sending this email just to report a problem that I'm experiencing on my Windows 11 computer. A week ago, I installed Windows 11 on my computer and the system is good. The only problem that I'm having is everytime time I boot up my computer and start the login process and begin to typing out the password, sometimes the cursor will be stuck in one placein the password box  and will not move. I literally have to press Tab to get out of it and Shift+Tab to go back again. This is a very annoying problem and I wonder have any of you early adopters experienced this problem recently? 

If you have, please let me know. 

Thanks 

best regards

Yes, that was my thought too.  Oh well, as I said, it’s certainly not a big deal so I will just leave it as is. 

 

The latest JAWS update is certainly performing faster with Outlook, so that is a good thing.

 

Thanks for the input, Adrian and Bill.

I know of no other solution, but this one has its risks. Imagine you get an email in which the following sentence appears:

 

You need read only the latest news to understand her concern.

 

After this dictionary change, JAWS would read the sentence this way:

 

You need the latest news to understand her concern.

 

I suppose not much meaning lost in this case, but it gives you an idea.

Hi, Pam. The solution that was offered was to put the words read only into the JAWS dictionary, and replace these words with a space character. This can either be done in the default dictionary file, (CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D), or in the dictionary file which is created when Outlook is open, and JAWS key plus D is pressed.

Hi,

 

Since upgrading to the latest JAWS, when I open an email in Outlook, JAWS now says “read only” before reading the email.  Does anyone know if there is a way to stop this?  It is a small thing, but gets annoying when going through a lot of email.

Hi, Steve. I am aware of this as well. I am also aware that, sometimes, the migration process ends up corrupting all the JAWS Settings. That's why I called Vispero and lobbied for a way to force JAWS NOT to migrate settings while installing a new version. Thankfully, Vispero recognized my request, and put in a check box, whereby you can tell JAWS 2022 not to migrate settings from 2021.

One in particular is verbosity. I have it at intermediate, but although my settings were imported, it put me back to beginner level.

 

So this migration thing is not perfect yet.

Hi, Paula. Once installed, there's not an easy way to merge settings. You would need to use the Export Settings option from JAWS 2021, then use the Import Settings option to import them into JAWS 2022. These are located within the Utilities menu in JAWS. It would almost be easier to uninstall JAWS 2022, and reinstall it, using the Migrate Settings option. What I don't understand is the fact that her settings weren't migrated. This would only happen if she was trying to upgrade from an earlier JAWS version than 2021. The default behavior is to migrate settings from JAWS 2021 to JAWS 2022, and she would have had to uncheck a check box in the JAWS 2022 installer to bypass this option.

I had the same experience, even though I was upgrading from 2021 to 2022. However, once directed to the import/export utility, arrowing up once to “Migrate” solved the problem easily and quickly.

Hi, Paula. Once installed, there's not an easy way to merge settings. You would need to use the Export Settings option from JAWS 2021, then use the Import Settings option to import them into JAWS 2022. These are located within the Utilities menu in JAWS. It would almost be easier to uninstall JAWS 2022, and reinstall it, using the Migrate Settings option. What I don't understand is the fact that her settings weren't migrated. This would only happen if she was trying to upgrade from an earlier JAWS version than 2021. The default behavior is to migrate settings from JAWS 2021 to JAWS 2022, and she would have had to uncheck a check box in the JAWS 2022 installer to bypass this option.

Hi all

 

I was working with someone yesterday who did her upgrade to Jaws 2022 but did not realise there was the option to merge settings. I have looked around as I was sure there must be an easy way to do it after the effect but I can’t find how to do it. Can someone advise me please as it would be faster than trying to go through and find all her settings again?

 

Cheers

Paula.
