Mike:

 

I just checked, and on both of my computers, the automatic notification of updates option was not checked.

 

I have now checked it.

 

This brings me to a question:

 

Typically, when I have done Jaws updates, I’ve used the link in your e-mails to grab and save the executable file.  Then, I opened the executable file to actually do the update.

 

I’ve always heard that this is the best way to proceed.

 

Now, with the automatic notification of updates, will I be given the chance to decline, at which point, I could either grab the executable file from your e-mail, or from the Freedom Scientific web site?

 

Thanks for any clarification.

It's not that simple.

For some reason, I've never gotten notification of Jaws updates on either of
my Windows 10 computers, and I never unchecked the box to automatically
check for updates.

This is why, in my view, Mike B's e-mails notifying us of updates, and
including the "what's new" info is so important.  They are very much
appreciated here.

If someone can tell me where to go to check the update notification box, I'd

Why would anyone intentionally uncheck the box to automatically check for
updates?  I can see this happening accidentally, but otherwise, it makes
little sense in my mind.
It's an alert and does not install anything unless you choose to do so. 
And, even if you initially accepted the update, there are additional
confirmations required before actually installation.

I'd be curious to know why would some folks not wanted to be told of
available updates?

Van Lant, Robin
 

Ann,
Since you asked, I have the feature turned on with my home computer and turned off at work. For my work computer, I don't do every update, given that they updates don't always improve things I use and it takes my going to the IT team to have the JAWS installation done. At home, it may be a while before I restart JAWS, so I'll get the notifications, but itt's often well after the release. Either way, I like Mike's summary so I can consider whether there is a benefit and easily grab any new keystrokes for my JAWS cheatsheet.

Thanks for the instructions on checking for updates.

Tom, I have never checked any boxes so I am assuming my accepting the
default
settings causes me to receive notifications not only for software updates
but also for JFW webcasts and such.
And I continue receiving the update notifications until I actually perform
the updates so I get constant reminders.
Incidentally, as part of the notifications, you can also check an item to
opt out of them.

Good afternoon Mike,

Even though I have that
Checkbox checked, for some reason and I don't know why, I never receive
that message that there is a jaws update too install. This is why I was
thanking mike for letting me and others, that was an update for Jaws.

Hi,

 

If it is checked it sometimes helps to uncheck it, close the program and restart it, then go back in and check it.

The keyboard language detect is not the right one.
Try to find it like this:
After opening the settings center and default it to all applications,
tab once, press the "T" to find "text processing" open it and there
you'd find "language processing" open it to find and turn on or off
the "detect language" feature.
That work's for all apps in one go.

Good morning Mike, 

 

I think you should know from the standpoint of a Jaws user,  that if it weren’t for  you informing us about updates to  Jaws,  many of us wouldn’t know about them. This is especially true, as many of us have the checkbox too automatically check for updates. Thanks in advance,  Al.

Hi All,

 

Below is the download link plus what's new for today's April J2022.2204.20 update.

 

Download link:

 

What's new:

 

Enhancements in JAWS 2022.2204.20 (April 2022)

 

The following is a list of improvements made between the February 2022 release and the April 2022 update.

 

list of 17 items
• Added a new keystroke, INSERT+SHIFT+Z, to Temporarily suspend Navigation Quick Keys. This is useful if you need to use conflicting keystrokes provided
by a website, but you do not want to completely turn off the Virtual Cursor. Navigation Quick Keys resume when you move focus away from the current browser
window or navigate to a new page. While this new keystroke is the primary way to access this feature and is referenced in Command Search, the old command,
CTRL+INSERT+N, still works for those users who may still press it out of habit.
• When Speech On Demand is active (INSERT+SPACEBAR, S) and you press INSERT+SPACEBAR, V, C to activate the Sound Cards layer, you will now hear speech
as you use UP or DOWN ARROW to select a different sound device.
• Addressed an issue reported by some users where speech would unexpectedly be lost after starting JAWS.
• Addressed a reported issue where capitalized words were not being read correctly when JAWS was configured to indicate capitalization when reading by
word. This only occurred when using Eloquence.
• Improved JAWS support for tables on web pages that scroll to visually show additional rows as you navigate with the ARROW keys.
• Addressed a reported issue where pressing CTRL+INSERT+R to list all regions on web pages was not working in Forms Mode.
• When switching between open document tabs in Google docs, resolved a reported issue where the name of the current tab was not announced if multiple tabs
had the same name.
• In Google Docs, removed the JAWS commands for moving to the start or end of a table row (ALT+CTRL+SHIFT+LEFT or RIGHT ARROW) so Google can make use of
these keystrokes in an upcoming release.
• Added a new Quick Settings option to help improve JAWS performance when navigating large spreadsheets in Excel for Office 365. If JAWS appears to be
sluggish as you navigate a particular spreadsheet, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) and turn off Allow performance impacting features. This turns off features
known to impact performance including named title regions, multiple region detection on worksheets, and auto detection of row or column totals on spreadsheets
where no formulas exist for totals calculation. These features tend to result in a slower response time with very large spreadsheets.
• In Office 365, JAWS now correctly indicates when a cell in an Excel workbook contains a note or comment. You can then press ALT+SHIFT+APOSTROPHE to read
the note or comment for the current cell. Note that if a comment contains a thread of replies, this keystroke only reads the initial comment in the thread.
To review the entire comment thread for a cell, or see all cells with comments, use F6 or SHIFT+F6 to cycle to the Comments pane. If this pane is not currently
visible, press ALT+R to access the Review tab and select Show Comments. To list all cells with notes, press CTRL+SHIFT+APOSTROPHE.
• When opening the Outlook Scheduling Assistant, the JAWS Virtual Viewer no longer appears as it interfered with a sighted ZoomText or Fusion User's view
of the window. JAWS users can still navigate the contents of the Scheduling Assistant using the ARROW keys.
• Resolved an issue where group headers in menus were not being announced in Microsoft Office apps.
• Updated the help text for the Announce alerts option in the JAWS Quick Settings for Zoom to mention the ALT+WINDOWS Key+S keystroke for temporarily toggling
alerts.
• The Convert Currency lookup source is once again available for Research It.
• When focused on ARIA content and ALT+INSERT+M is pressed to move to a target element, JAWS now reads the current line that gains focus.
• The Liblouis braille translator used by JAWS and Fusion has been updated to version 3.21.0.
• Resolved an issue with the Italian version of JAWS where various emoji symbols were not being announced as expected.
list end

Hi all,


today's JAWS 2022 update is causing a message to appear on my friend's Dell XPs13 notebook.

JAWS claims that it's authorized to run on an earlier version than 2022.2204.20..

Clicking on "Update Authorization" will display that the activation was successful, but JAWS is still running in 40 minute mode, even after a system restart.


Anyone else seeing this?

Why would anyone intentionally uncheck the box to automatically check for
updates? I can see this happening accidentally, but otherwise, it makes
little sense in my mind.
It's an alert and does not install anything unless you choose to do so.
And, even if you initially accepted the update, there are additional
confirmations required before actually installation.

I'd be curious to know why would some folks not wanted to be told of
available updates?

Good morning Mike, 

 

I think you should know from the standpoint of a Jaws user,  that if it weren’t for  you informing us about updates to  Jaws,  many of us wouldn’t know about them. This is especially true, as many of us have the checkbox too automatically check for updates. Thanks in advance,  Al.

Hi All,

 

Below is the download link plus what's new for today's April J2022.2204.20 update.

What's new:

 

Enhancements in JAWS 2022.2204.20 (April 2022)

 

The following is a list of improvements made between the February 2022 release and the April 2022 update.

 

list of 17 items
• Added a new keystroke, INSERT+SHIFT+Z, to Temporarily suspend Navigation Quick Keys. This is useful if you need to use conflicting keystrokes provided
by a website, but you do not want to completely turn off the Virtual Cursor. Navigation Quick Keys resume when you move focus away from the current browser
window or navigate to a new page. While this new keystroke is the primary way to access this feature and is referenced in Command Search, the old command,
CTRL+INSERT+N, still works for those users who may still press it out of habit.
• When Speech On Demand is active (INSERT+SPACEBAR, S) and you press INSERT+SPACEBAR, V, C to activate the Sound Cards layer, you will now hear speech
as you use UP or DOWN ARROW to select a different sound device.
• Addressed an issue reported by some users where speech would unexpectedly be lost after starting JAWS.
• Addressed a reported issue where capitalized words were not being read correctly when JAWS was configured to indicate capitalization when reading by
word. This only occurred when using Eloquence.
• Improved JAWS support for tables on web pages that scroll to visually show additional rows as you navigate with the ARROW keys.
• Addressed a reported issue where pressing CTRL+INSERT+R to list all regions on web pages was not working in Forms Mode.
• When switching between open document tabs in Google docs, resolved a reported issue where the name of the current tab was not announced if multiple tabs
had the same name.
• In Google Docs, removed the JAWS commands for moving to the start or end of a table row (ALT+CTRL+SHIFT+LEFT or RIGHT ARROW) so Google can make use of
these keystrokes in an upcoming release.
• Added a new Quick Settings option to help improve JAWS performance when navigating large spreadsheets in Excel for Office 365. If JAWS appears to be
sluggish as you navigate a particular spreadsheet, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) and turn off Allow performance impacting features. This turns off features
known to impact performance including named title regions, multiple region detection on worksheets, and auto detection of row or column totals on spreadsheets
where no formulas exist for totals calculation. These features tend to result in a slower response time with very large spreadsheets.
• In Office 365, JAWS now correctly indicates when a cell in an Excel workbook contains a note or comment. You can then press ALT+SHIFT+APOSTROPHE to read
the note or comment for the current cell. Note that if a comment contains a thread of replies, this keystroke only reads the initial comment in the thread.
To review the entire comment thread for a cell, or see all cells with comments, use F6 or SHIFT+F6 to cycle to the Comments pane. If this pane is not currently
visible, press ALT+R to access the Review tab and select Show Comments. To list all cells with notes, press CTRL+SHIFT+APOSTROPHE.
• When opening the Outlook Scheduling Assistant, the JAWS Virtual Viewer no longer appears as it interfered with a sighted ZoomText or Fusion User's view
of the window. JAWS users can still navigate the contents of the Scheduling Assistant using the ARROW keys.
• Resolved an issue where group headers in menus were not being announced in Microsoft Office apps.
• Updated the help text for the Announce alerts option in the JAWS Quick Settings for Zoom to mention the ALT+WINDOWS Key+S keystroke for temporarily toggling
alerts.
• The Convert Currency lookup source is once again available for Research It.
• When focused on ARIA content and ALT+INSERT+M is pressed to move to a target element, JAWS now reads the current line that gains focus.
• The Liblouis braille translator used by JAWS and Fusion has been updated to version 3.21.0.
• Resolved an issue with the Italian version of JAWS where various emoji symbols were not being announced as expected.
list end

Hi,

In settings center, I found detect keyboard language and unchecking that did not fix the problem. In quick settings, unchecking language check does fix it.

moderated Re: Windows 11 and Laptop

 

Hi,

There is a way to check if Trusted Platform Module is up and running (at least Surface Laptop should have it set and running):

  1. Open Start menu.
  2. Type “cmd” without quotes and press Enter.
  3. When Command Prompt or PowerShell opens, type “tpm.msc” without quotes and press Enter. You can then use touch cursor or JAWS cursor to review the screen.

Note that this method assumes at least Windows 10 Pro or above (may not work on Windows 10 Home). As Brian pointed out, download the latest version of PC Health Check and see if that makes a difference. Even if TPM is functioning, if the processor is older than Intel Core 8th generation, the only way to upgrade to Windows 11 (officially, if you insist) is telling Microsoft that you accept the consequences by agreeing to a warning message when presented by Windows Setup. Even if you go through this route, a future version of Windows 11 may display a message on the screen telling you that your system is unsupported and updates are not guaranteed.

There was a discussion on WinAccess forum where this very subject came up. While the forum does mention Windows Registry tweaks, I advise not installing Windows 11 on unsupported systems.

Cheers,

Joseph

Then you are most likely using one of the earlier versions of the PC Health Check.  I think they're up to the 5th or 6th one now.  The one I've got, and this was a first, even updated itself when I went to run it again yesterday.  The older versions did not check for updates to themselves.

Hi Steve and All,
I had no idea that this was an option. I will contact Microsoft Accessibility and work on this issue with them. Thanks.
Best,

Les

While you are correct, it should be telling you this pretty explicitly.

The PC Health Check as it exists today is very good about looking at all the hardware and configuration aspects and giving pretty clear information about where, exactly, something's lacking.

One should review the output from the PC Health Check very carefully and I'm simply presuming that those who take the time and effort to do so are actually doing precisely that.  When I run PC Health check, the results that show by default (and in this case it's only one result, because only one fails, and that's my CPU) are the things that make it fail.  But you can choose to show all results, but even that should not be necessary as anything that fails should be shown.  The things checked include the processor/CPU, Secure Boot, TPM version and status, RAM, System Disk Capacity, Number of processor cores, Processor clock speed.

If any of these fail, that should be pointed out in the short list that gets displayed.  The others are only shown if you choose to show all results.

Subject: JAWS Update, Authorization Invalid?

Hi all,


today's JAWS 2022 update is causing a message to appear on my friend's Dell XPs13 notebook.

JAWS claims that it's authorized to run on an earlier version than 2022.2204.20..

Clicking on "Update Authorization" will display that the activation was successful, but JAWS is still running in 40 minute mode, even after a system restart.


Anyone else seeing this?
