I haven't seen any discounts offered this convention season for Jaws.
Generally, the most cost effective way to purchase a SMA is to renew for 2
years instead of 1 at the time of renewal.
As I'm set through the 2024 upgrade, it shows me no prices when looking at
the upgrade page.

I just finished listing to the latest FSCast and the only discount they mentioned offering was for people using SMAs. I would take them up on the offer except that I currently have two more upgrades available and I don't want to get too far ahead of myself.

I would suggest that you give them a call or email them and ask about annual license discounts.

I was trying to move the Pop Peeper icon to be in the first position in the notification area of the task bar and as far as I know, for Windows 10, drag and drop is the only way I can find. I am sure it could be done with some registry edits, but nobody seems to know what those edits are so drag and drop is the only option for now.

After I tried to drag and drop the Pop Peeper icon, it sounded like it got paired with the JAWS icon because those two were always read together.

Subject: Re: I no longer get that pop up update jaws window when my jaws first starts up asking me if I want to update to a newer release of jaws 2022



Hello back,

in the jaws help menu when I activate the check for jaws updates, I only get the question from the freedom scientific app asking me if I want to let this app make changes to my computer and I can only select yes or no. Since I am not sure at this time what this freedom scientific app will exactly do to my laptop if I select yes, I for now instead select no.

In the jaws help menu, when you activate this app check for updates, I thought a jaws user gets a list of all the current updates of jaws that are available, giving the jaws user the option to select from this list the particular jaws update they want to download?







Kindest regards,

Hank

Hank:

Also, if you get into JAWS Help, what happens if you activate the Check for Updates choice in the Help menu?

Best regards,

Curtis Chong

Hello back,

Thanks for all the helpful replies. But as I was mentioning earlier, even though I am still using the October or November 2021 release of jaws 2022, I am no longer getting that automatic pop up window when my jaws first starts up asking me if I want to yes or no update my jaws to a newer release of jaws 2022?

I was until about 3 or 4 days ago getting this automatic pop up window asking me if I yes or no wanted to update my jaws every time when my jaws first started up, but now I am not. This has got me stumped because as I was saying, I am still using the last October or November 2021 release of jaws 2022. I have already checked in jaws under basics, and the automatic notification of jaws updates is yes checked.

I am really hoping that maybe someone has an idea on how I can get back this automatic pop up window asking me if I want to yes or no update my jaws to a newer release of jaws 2022 when my jaws first starts up? Would be very, very appreciative for any help on this matter. Much, much thanks in advance for any possible help on this.







With kindest regards,

Hank

Hello:

" Wait, didn't I hear on the FSCast that they had changed that behavior so that you were notified of newer versions even if that newer version is a major version upgrade and not just a point version update?"

If you hold the JAWS Home Annual License, what you say is accurate. But if you are on the traditional licensing scheme, you will not automatically be notified when a major update comes out—usually around the end of October.

Cordially,

Curtis Chong

Hello,
Now when my jaws first starts up I no longer get that notification
update pop up window in which I can select yes or no to update jaws
or not. And no I have not yet updated my October or November 2021
release of jaws 2022 to the latest release of 2022.
I have checked under options in jhaws and the automatic notification
of updates is checked.
This really has me stumped. Anyone maybe please have any ideas on
how I can get back this pop up window when I first start my October
or November 2021 release of jaws 2022? Much, much thanks in advance
for any help I can maybe get with this.
With kindest regards,
Hank

Hi Tom,
 
About the only place I drag and drop is on the Taskbar, but this is the best method I've learned of for Windows 10.  Below Win10's steps will be the keystroke for Win11, and you can always try the Win10 keystroke with Win11 in other areas than the Taskbar.
 
Win10:
 From: Sieghard Weitzel
With Jaws 2021 or 2022 I can drag and drop anything at will and in seconds, not sure why this doesn't work for you and I'm not saying drag and drop
works everywhere, but on the taskbar it works 100% of the time and it's
simply a matter of going to the icon you want to drag, pressing the,
Control + Jaws Key + NumPad Slash key combination, arrowing to where you want to
drop it and pressing the key combination again.
 
Sieghard
 
Win11:
From: Ben Moxey
Windows 11 has dedicated keystrokes built-in for moving taskbar icons. Simply hold Alt and Shift, and use your left and right arrows. Note that your screen
reader doesn’t announce that it’s moving them at this stage, but it works.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi,


Using Jaws 22, how do I use the drag and drop command?

Is there anything to be aware of?


Thanks


Tom

Actually, it is just the opposite.
The touch cursor is for those of us without a touch screen.
So you can use the touch screen.
For those without a touch screen, you activate the touch screen cursor with shift + PC cursor.
Double-tap the PC cursor to turn it off.
Then you can use the arrow keys and the number pad.

Hey! I have a question about the touch cursor of Jaws. I have a touch screen and I guess thats what the touch cursor is for. The problem is, I can not find a way to activate it. I already tried combinations like Shift+Insert+Caps lock+(+) or Shift+Caps lock+; but for some reason I can't get it to work. Is there a quick gesture to activate it? Do you guys have any experiences with Jaws on a touch screen?
Greetings!
