I had a similar problem with my Dell sound a few years ago. After many
calls to Dell Pro support and a new motherboard we finally gave up on the
onboard sound and added a Sound Blaster card.

Hi, Fred. On your Dell computer, have you gone into Properties for the
selected playback device, to make sure that all special effects are turned
off? This would be in the Spacial Sound tab of Properties for the selected

Bill, you are right in what I said. The computer works fine but just very
basey audio and practically no treble. The problem is not my speakers as I
use two computers with one set of speakers. I thought of calling the
microsoft help line but the problem seemed to have started during dell
updates and I thought dell might have the solution. I have been working on
this problem now for about a month. Anyway, thanks to all that has or will

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

Hi, John. Are you by any chance pressing ALT, H, H, or ALT, H, L at any time during the composition of your message? if so, this is a toggle, and pressing ALT, H, H, or ALT, H, L will uncheck these flags.

 

It could also be a setting in one of the rules you have for creating and sorting messages, if you are using rules in Outlook.

Hi, Curtis. I can actually make two of the steps for creating favorites even simpler. After making sure nothing is selected, and pressing CONTROL plus SHIFT plus F10, just press W, followed by S, and Arrowing to "New" followed by arrowing to Shortcut is eliminated. W, followed by S eliminates the steps involving arrowing to New and to Shortcuts.

Greetings everyone:

 

I thought it might be helpful to the group if I passed along a solution for managing website favorites which works across all of the Windows browsers I have worked with over the years: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge.

 

First, I created a folder within My Documents called Favorites. There is nothing magical about the name of the folder. You can call it anything you like. This is where you would store any Favorite that you create.

 

Second, using Edge or any other browser, go to the web page for which you would like to create a favorite or shortcut. Press ALT+D or CTRL+L (it really doesn't matter) to move the focus to the address bar. Since the URL contained in the address bar is already highlighted (selected), press CTRL+C to copy the URL to the Windows Clipboard.

 

With File Explorer, open the Favorites folder you have created. Press CTRL+SPACE a couple of times to ensure that nothing is selected. JAWS should tell you when the line item is not selected.

 

Now, press Shift+F10 to open up a context menu and up arrow to New. Press right arrow to open the submenu and press down arrow to Shortcut. Press Enter.

 

Paste the URL you copied earlier into the edit field and tab once to type a name for the Shortcut. Then, press Enter.

 

That's all there is to it. Any time you want to manage or go to a favorite, use File Explorer first to locate the favorite and then press Enter to activate it.

 

Cordially,

 

Curtis Chong

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.

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.

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,

Mario

JAWS should have prompted you to OCR the document. If it did not, something else is going on.

Hi list,

 

I opened an Adobe Acrobat Reader DC document, and JAWS says blank. How can I make JAWS recognize it?

 

Cheers,

moderated Suggestion for editing favorites by copying the link and pasting it into a folder doesn't work in Edge for me. Please try again?

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.

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.

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
