Hello,

 

I don’t think that removing JAWS 2020 would have caused the removal of MaGic from your system.

 

It is my understanding that Freedom Scientific has stopped supporting or distributing MaGic so if you are needing both screen enlargement your choice is to go with Fusion which combines ZoomText and JAWS in one package or buying Zoom Text as a separate license. It will make more sense to buy a License for Fusion, cost wise.

Good morning Listers: I recently installed J 2022. It is my practice to keep the last 2 versions and remove anything older. So I removed J 2020.

 

Is it  possible that in removing J 2020 I also removed Magic? Suddenly Magic has disappeared from my system. I have run every search I can think of, and Magic is no where to be found.

 

Next question is—can I get it back?

Am I the only one experiencing this, or can anyone obtain a meeting ID from JAWS Tandem? When I try, I get a "Cancel" button, and when I tab, I see Meeting ID progress, 0%. Then, 30 seconds later, I get an error message stating that JAWS Tandem could not connect, and an advisement to check my firewall.

Hi Sandra,

 

Go into the Options menu, the Voices sub-menu, and choose Voice Adjustment.

 

The last option in that dialogue is Upper Case Pitch change.  It’s an edit box so just delete what’s there and type in a new value.

 

Cheers,

So, making friends with my new computer, I am, of course, sometimes tweaking JAWS settings—David, latest JAWS build, Win. 11. For whatever reason, I don’t seem able to change the capital-letter pitch—I would like it higher than the default. Could someone send thorough instructions? Thx! Doing something wrong, obviously…

You could go back into the Settings Center while you have the same
application running and change them back to what they were before, if
you remember them.
Or, if you go into the ENU folder of the Jaws version you're running,
file path below:
C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2021\Settings\enu
and look for the program you changed the settings of, i.e Word, you
would look for the, Word.JCF file.  If you delete this file this will
put Word back to it's default JAWS settings in the Settings Center.
Any time you modify an application it creates a, JCF, file in the ENU
folder of the particular JAWS version you're running at the time of the
settings change, and any other changes that you make down the road are
reflected in this same JCF file.

Mike,

So, once you've used INSERT + 6 to create application-specific settings,
how are those managed going forward?  And by that I mean particularly
how would you edit those and, just as importantly, how would you delete
them entirely just for one application.

I'd imagine after doing the tweaks these have to be saved under some
name, and are known as some thing (e.g., profile, app specific settings,
etc.)

I have not played with JAWS in a while and never had occasion to deal
with this speci

fic aspect since most of my clients were entirely new to
JAWS and teaching the basics of day-to-day use took precedence over all
else.

Yes, it's called the Settings Center and it's accessed by pressing, Insert + 6, on the number row while in a specific application.  This will make settings changes for only the application you're running when opening the Settings Center.
 
If the person wanted the changes to be for all programs they would press, control, shift + D, to open the Settings Center default all applications, after invoking the, Insert + 6, keystroke.
 
The Settings Center can also be accessed by pressing, Insert + F2, to open the, JAWS Manager, then navigating to, Settings Center, and pressing enter.

moderated Re: VLC Media Player

 

if you have a 64-bit version of Windows (which you almost certainly do if you're using anything newer than Windows 7), this is what you want to download and install:

https://get.videolan.org/vlc/3.0.16/win64/vlc-3.0.16-win64.exe 

If, by chance, you are using an old 32-bit machine, which is unlikely, then go with this:

This is my tale of woes.  I downloaded “The Nine Lives of Christmas” and couldn’t find it in my Hallmark folder.  When I did a search for it, it appeared to be in the VLC folder and I couldn’t delete it.  So, I deleted the entire VLC folder.  I enjoy using VLC and tried installing one that said it was for windows but it also asked me to install kernel exe.  It told me how to go to an older version but I got confused.  Help please!!

To change how JAWS speaks numbers do the following.

  1. Make sure that you’re on the Web site or in the program where you want to make this change.
  2. Press insert+6 to open the Settings Center. This is the 6 on the row of numbers and not the 6 on the number pad.
  3. Type the word “number” without the quotes.
  4. Arrow down to the item labeled “number processing” but do not press enter at this point.
  5. Press the space bar to cycle through the various options, such as “digits” “full numbers”, etc.
  6. When you have moved to the setting that you want just press the enter key twice. The dialog will be closed and your settings will be saved.
