Tom,

I have a vague recollection of a pop-up suggestion coming at me once, but who knows.  Here is a help article I found that seems to have the link and instructions.

Installing the Zoom for Outlook add-in – Zoom Support

Robin:

 

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

 

I do use outlook with Office 365, so this may be a good option.

 

I know things will be different if I try to set up Zoom meetings on my IPhone, but that is a process I can tackle later on.

Tom,

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.

Hello, everyone.

 

Please forgive me if this is not appropriate for this list.

 

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.

 

If this quiry is not appropriate for this list, I ask that anyone reply to me privately at:

 

tombehler@...

 

Thank you!

Andy,

You mention the JAWS find control-f. Actually, control-f is a Windows function. The JAWS search control is JAWS key+control+f. I use this latter command as my Web search default.

I hope this is the right answer for you.

Hello all, I create reports on a daily basis for the Talking Information Center. I look at the MBTA.Com website to get the delays and relocate location changes so those needing to get the changes will get the most accurate report. My problem is, I usually type in delay after using control f so jaws (the latest jaws) can find the word delay. For some reason, the website or jaws is not finding this. I have gone through many times with jaws and google crome at the MBTA.com site and can't figure what has changed. What happened before was, I would got to the subway section and do the delay search and anything with delay would come up with the jaws find control f. I would do the same for the Bus and Commuter Rail section. There are lots of delays on a daily basis that scrolling down one line by line would take so much more time. Are there Jaws users here have any suggestions that would help me? Greatly appreciate it. Andy and Leroy

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

There is one other possibility besides the power. While it most likely is the power, if you are directly wired connected to the internet or a network, and have wait turned on, someone can turn your computer on. If you are using wifi then it is probably the power.

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.

Whatever you do when you do get it resolved and hopefully that will be soon I would suggest buying one of those trays that the computer can sit on top of that have fans all around it plus it also has several extra USB sockets for your use. I got one of those several years ago from Amazon for my laptop gateway.

I agree about disconnecting peripherals to test.

The reason I think it’s a power supply issue and not directly caused by overheating is that the unit seems to be switching on all by itself, too, and not just shutting down/rebooting while in use. To me, this suggests intermittent power or perhaps surges caused by a faulty power supply. Could be as simple as the cable though. Try when not plugged in.

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.

Power supply, as someone mentioned before.

You could try leaving the computer unplugged for a while and see if it still does this.

If not, then I guess you have a relatively easy fix as you might just have to replace the charger/adapter.

Otherwise, it’s internal power supply that is faulty, is what it sounds like – but get it checked.

The laptop is not old, certainly, but laptops can be delicate things and weird stuff like this can go wrong.

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

Robin:

 

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

 

I do use outlook with Office 365, so this may be a good option.

 

I know things will be different if I try to set up Zoom meetings on my IPhone, but that is a process I can tackle later on.

Tom,

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.

Hello, everyone.

 

Please forgive me if this is not appropriate for this list.

 

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.

 

If this quiry is not appropriate for this list, I ask that anyone reply to me privately at:

 

tombehler@...

 

Thank you!

Maybe you could reassign that key to do what it is supposed to do.
That won't address why it is happening, but if reassigning that key to do
its intended function works, then maybe that is all that is needed.

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.
