Hello.

I agree with the overheating idea.  Try to elevate the edges so that air can flow under it.  If that doesn't help, I'm afraid things are going to get interesting.  Disconnect all peripherals just to make sure that isn't causing your problem.  If it still crashes and you have a warranty, time to use it, otherwise find out if a repair would be worth the money.

Good morning everyone,

I am a bit surprised and at a loss as to what to do.

I have a very good and nice laptop that I purchased a little over a year ago. It’s one of the best I’ve had.

Yesterday, I was about to attend a function via Zoom when I noticed that even while it was closed and supposedly off, it rebooted itself. I knew that because the Windows startup sound came up.

The battery was at 86% at the time.

I actually opened the computer to see if it was on, but it wasn’t, so I pushed the power button, and it supposedly booted as normal. Once I went through getting going and getting my Zoom room set up, I noticed JAWS stopped talking, and a few seconds later, it rebooted again.

I thought it might be doing Windows updates, but that was not the case.

I went through everything again, and while I waited for my people to come to my zoom room, I went to Outlook to check email. I heard a click, the computer turned off and began rebooting again. After doing this a couple more times and being very tired from the general day, I gave up and closed my laptop and just left it plugged in. Sure enough, from the other room, I heard the faint sound of the Windows Startup sound.

I’ve never seen this happen before. I could understand an update doing several reboots, but this was not the case.

Does anyone have any good suggestions? Again, this is a great laptop and has served me well, until yesterday.

Thanks.

Jim

It would seem you should be able to get the scripts as a reasonable accommodation. If not, you’re on the right track going through the Freedomscientific material.

Hi Bonnie. When I use teams, if I am in a call, it is normally in a
separate window from the regular Teams program. If you use it a lot,
you might consider downloading the scripts for Teams from Doug Lee's
web-site. They make Teams work better from what I can tell. Teams is
hard to get used to, and quite honestly, not as good as Zoom in my
humble opinion. That is not saying that you can't use it effectively,
but Zoom is easier.

Yesterday I listened to a YouTube about Jaws 2021 that said there’s
a setting where you can put a Microsoft teams call into a separate
window, and then your hotkeys would be available. But when I went to
look in teams 2022, that setting did not appear to be there. Does
anyone know, are the calls already in a separate window, or is there
someway for me to make the hotkeys more accessible on a call?

Thank you, Bonnie

The laptop does not sound that old.

Is the environment the laptop is being used in, a dusty place? Are there pets in the house?

Is it possible to elevate the laptop so as to increase breathing and heat shedding? So books stacked underneath would not be ideal for  getting space between the desk and the underside of the laptop.

Have you finally powered-off the laptop? Was it possible to do this and if so, how has the behavior of the laptop been since then?

Hi Jim,

Possibly overheating?

If you aren't comfortable removing the panels from the bottom to access the fan for a cleaning with a can of air, a computer store can do this for you.

I've seen dusty fans cause a laptop to heat up, and then it shuts down.

How do you enable the Outlook plug-in in Zoom?

Do you use Outlook?  If so, you can add the Zoom plug-in to Outlook, then you just schedule a meeting  in Outlook and click the Zoom button to schedule the Zoom part and add to the invitation.  That is my preferred method, but I use Outlook calendar a lot, so it’s the easiest or me.

I’m looking for an easy and straight-forward set of instructions for scheduling and inviting people to a Zoom meeting that I want to set up.

 

I kind of got there tonight by floundering around in the Zoom menus, and with the help of some sighted assistance, but I have to believe there’s a simpler way to do it than what I have come up with so far.

 

I’m fairly good with participating in Zoom meetings that already have been set up, and I’d now like to expand my horizons a bit.

 

I’m using the latest build of Jaws on a Windows 10 PC, and I updated to the latest version of the Zoom client earlier today.

Dear List Friends,

I request your assistance in solving a strange problem faced by one of
my students.

She is using a Windows 10 laptop with Windows updated to 2021H2 version
& JAWS 2022 updated with the April 2022 update. For the past few days,
she is unable to activate her JAWS cursor. When she presses the minus
key on her laptop numpad, JAWS stays silent & does not activate the JAWS
cursor.

We have uninstalled JAWS with all the user settings & made a fresh
install of JAWS 2022. Since the problem continued, we tried uninstalling
JAWS 2022 & installing JAWS 2021 but the same problem of JAWS cursor
continued. We also verified that the JAWS versions were installed in
desktop mode.

When JAWS is turned off, the minus key behaves normally. It also behaves
normally with the latest version of NVDA.

Kindly guide me regarding how we can solve this problem as she needs to
use a software at work requiring use of the JAWS cursor.

Thanking you all in advance for any & all assistance.

In Winamp, I have the JAWS verbosity set to Advanced. This seems to stop the announcing of keystrokes, and limits the verbosity of the announcement of functions, for example, pressing the letter "S", JAWS will say "on" or "off", instead of saying "Shuffle Mode On" or, "Shuffle Mode Off"and the same for other functions.

 

The letter "C", has no effect, if there is no track playing.

 

If you have a library of files in a .m3u file and you have it loaded in Winamp, pressing the SPACE BAR, will always play the first track, regardless of the current track which is playing.

 

Likewise, if you exit Winamp and restart Winamp, pressing the SPACE BAR, will play the track list from the beginning.

Hi, Glenn. One way of avoiding hearing the word space when playing a word in code in Winamp is, instead of using the space bar to pause play in Winamp, use the letter C to pause and resume play in Winamp. Winamp will not voice the letter C when pausing and resuming play in Winamp.

So I searched for anything to JFW in the past month with the word key in the body, and found the answer I was looking for.

Hi David,

 

Try the following:
1. Open the Settings Center with, Insert + 6 on the number row, & press, Control, Shift + D, to open Settings Center Default All Applications.

Note: If you only want to mute keys in a specific app / program open the Settings Center while in the specific app / program, Insert + 6 on the number row.

If you want to mute keys in all programs you need to do this in Settings Center default all applications.
2. Arrow down to, Keyboard, & press right arrow to open.

 

3. Down arrow to, General, and right arrow to open.

 

4. Arrow down to, Manage Key Labels...., & press the spacebar to open.  Note:  Do not press enter, pressing enter will close the Settings Center.


5. After pressing the spacebar you will be in a list of keys.  Arrow down to the key you want to mute, & Tab 1 time to the, Toggle Mute Button, & press
the spacebar to mute.  You'll hear Jaws announce, for example the Tab key, Tab Tab mute.
6. Tab to, Okay, press the spacebar, tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, tab to, Okay, & press enter to save your change & close the Settings Center.

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Subject: Muting alt, shift, and control key voicing

 

I'm new to the list and can't seem to find what I'm looking for in the
JAWS help. A game I play uses alt-F3 to read the letter in focus using
phonetics. I need this to distinguish certain letters such as b, d, p,
and t from one another. The voicing of the alt f3 covers the phonetics
so that they are useless. I have functioned without the conflict until
recently when I must have inadvertently changed some setting. How do I
turn off the voicing of key labels such as f3, alt-f3, shift-f3, and
control-f3?

Hi Glenn,


press r to toggle repeat on or off. That will repeat the currently
playing track or tracks, depending on what you selected.

If you used l to open one single file or opened it from within Windows
explorer, that will repeat that file. If you used Shift+l to open a
folder, repeat kicks in once the last track contained in that folder has
stopped or you press b to advance to track one.

Nermin

Thanks!

All the Best,

if the scan cursor were scriptable which I haven't done research into whether it is or not, it would make customizing the new windows11 notepad app easier.

Hi, Glenn. Pressing R during the playing of a track will make that track loop, but only if that is the only track which is selected for playing. Pressing R to turn on Repeat Mode while multiple tracks are selected for playing will repeat all tracks, instead of repeating only the current track. You must press R again to turn off Repeat Mode.

About all I need to know about winamp, is if there is a way to make a track loop.

I went through the  menus but found nothing.

I would not want it for all tracks, just a on-demand feature.

Glen:

 

In Winamp, I have the JAWS verbosity set to Advanced. This seems to stop the announcing of keystrokes, and limits the verbosity of the announcement of functions, for example, pressing the letter "S", JAWS will say "on" or "off", instead of saying "Shuffle Mode On" or, "Shuffle Mode Off"and the same for other functions.

 

The letter "C", has no effect, if there is no track playing.

 

If you have a library of files in a .m3u file and you have it loaded in Winamp, pressing the SPACE BAR, will always play the first track, regardless of the current track which is playing.

 

Likewise, if you exit Winamp and restart Winamp, pressing the SPACE BAR, will play the track list from the beginning.

Yes, but it does not start it like space does.

X will start it like space.

But when a file is just opened, C does not work

C is pause, and if the file is longer, resumes play. If you have an mp3 file of music or something like that, or an mp3 podcast, try the letter C, and see if it resumes play.

I guess for me, X is play, because  it plays the short files from start.

But C does not play.

I think C is pause.

Hi, Glenn. The letter X takes you back to the beginning of the file. The letter C as in Charlie pauses and resumes play.

Hi, Glenn. One way of avoiding hearing the word space when playing a word in code in Winamp is, instead of using the space bar to pause play in Winamp, use the letter C to pause and resume play in Winamp. Winamp will not voice the letter C when pausing and resuming play in Winamp.
