Fred,

What exactly is the problem?
Your computer becomes slow?

Maybe disable the Wavemax audio driver.
Open the startmenu, type:
services.msc
Tab when this program opens and you are in a list.
Find the Wavemax audio driver. I don' have the exact name, something
with Wavemax I thought.
Right click on it and choose properties.
Set startup type: disable.

Your sound will still work without this driver.

Kind regards, Marten

Debby Hill
 

Hi Ashleigh,

 

I am the one who wrote those directions. I thought they would work in the favorites as well as on the favorites bar, but they do not seem to work in the favorites. However, if you have the favorites bar visible, the directions work. I tested that again this morning. By the way, I get to my favorites bar by going to the top of a webpage and then press shift tab. I don’t know why the directions are not working in the favorites itself. Maybe someone else can tell us.

 

Take care and stay safe!

Hello,

I just found out that the suggestion someone posted here for copying a favorite in Edge and moving it to another folder doesn’t work for me. Please come up with another way? I’ve been opening the link, manually putting it into the folder I wish to, and so on. It’s painstaking, but that’s the only way I can think of. When I finished copying the link from one website, I didn’t find anything about pasting it into the folder I wished to. I didn’t even find a cut option, thank God, but … I’m still using Windows 10 and won’t upgrade until I absolutely have to.

Ashleigh S. Piccinino

P.S. I used the context key on my full keyboard for a desktop the whole time I looked for the cut button and paste, not finding either.

After you opened the file in the Acrobat Reader, Did you try using the layered command to OCR the file and if you did, what was the result?

 

The Layered command is JAWS Key + Spacebar + V + O + D.

 

And, if you are looking for help try to respond back as soon as possible.

Assuming that you are running a recent version of Jaws and are using Adobe Reader to open the PDF file, Jaws will perform an automatic OCR and attempt to read the context of the document to you.

 

I know that Jaws 2021 and 2022 will do the automatic OCR.  I am not certain how far back you need to go when this feature was built into the program.

 

I had this problem in the past and FS had me perform a Jaws repair and the problem was resolved. Jaws recognizes  that the PDF is a scanned image and attempts to perform an OCR to read the context of the image to you.

 

Good luck,

Paul,

And while  I do appreciate what you have offered, and suspect I have the answer, what I want to know is exactly what I'd asked.  When you hit the power button (the soft power button from the power menu) do you get Sleep as one of the options?

On this laptop, if I hit the Windows Key, Shift + Tab, and down arrow to the Power Menu and activate it, the choices I get are Sleep, Hibernate, Shutdown, Restart.  Most folks won't have Hibernate, as that's off by default and I enabled it, but you should get Sleep, Shutdown, and Restart on a laptop.  Some desktops will not present a Sleep option, but that's not the majority of them, as there's generally not much need to sleep a machine unless it's running on battery power alone.

Brian, 

A couple times you have asked: "Do you have a Sleep option showing up in your Power Menu?" 

This is what is on my computer: Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Power Options / Change when the computer sleeps / Change plan settings. Then it gives me these two options: Turn off the Display and Put the computer to sleep. There are drop-downs to set the times of your choice. I have set 10 minutes for both settings.

I hope this answers your question to help us determine the root cause, and then the fix, for my problem. 

As a reminder, this function to automatically Turn off the Display and Put the computer to sleep, worked properly on my computer with JAWS 2021, but not with JAWS 2022. 

Thanks,
Paul

Hi,

 

Do the following using the JAWS Layered Command:

 

Press Insert (JAWS Key) followed by the letter V.

 

Press the letter O.

 

Then, finally press the letter D.

 

Do this while you have the empty document opened in the Acrobat Reader.

 

Be sure that if you are using Windows 10 that you have installed the latest version of Acrobat Reader DC in the 64 bit version. Also, you need to be running the latest version of JAWS for the best possible result.

 

You can also find more OCR Layered commands when you Press Insert followed by the letter V, then the Questions Mark.

 

Another way you could scan the blank document is by running File Explorer and going to the folder where the file is located and highlighting it.

 

Once the file is highlighted, press your application key and arrow down to Convenient OCR with JAWS to Word.

 

You also have Convenient OCR available in that menu as well.

 

Hope all this helps.

moderated Re: Managing Bookmarks/Favorites in Edge

Debby Hill
 

Hi Jeff,

From what I have found, the context menu--the applications key or shift F10--is your friend. I am going to make an assumption that you can get to your favorites. If my assumption is wrong, just let us know. Anyway, once you have focus on the item that you want to move/copy/delete, go to the context menu and arrow down. You will find the various options there. There is no "move" button, so to move an item hit enter on "cut." Then go to the folder in favorites you want to move the item to and again get into the context menu. Arrow down to paste and press enter. Your item should be moved.

I hope this helps.

Take care and stay safe!
