Hey there Meow Meow!
Your name makes me smile! To turn off automatic updates in new versions of Windows like Windows 10, which doesn't seem to have that parameter in the Control Panel like other previous versions (That really makes me mad), you actually have to create a registry key. If it's not already there, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion. create a new key called "WindowsUpdate". within that key, create another key called AU. Within that key, create a Dword value called NoAutoUpdate. Set that value to 1. If you have Winaero Tweaker, which also helps, set the parameter of Disable Windows Update to checked, and you should be good to go. It does sound complicated, but it's definitely worth it if you don't wanna be bothered with constant updates!

Yes, turning off automatic updates is a good thing.
I don't know if windows 10 or that newer one, LOL, allow one to select
which
updates can be installed through windows update, like we can in earlier
windows.

Hi Annabelle!

You woun't hear that from me! I've been the computer industry since 1980
and I have always felt that automatic updates are a very bad idea. The
problem with automatic updates is that you may get an update that does
bad thing to your computer, and while you might be able remove the
update, the automatic update feature will just put it back again. It is
always better to wait a while to see what others are saying about an
update and if the news isn't good, you just don't install it!

As I understand it, JAWS is mine to keep, even if I don't renew the SMA,
but eventually the software won't work as Windows and applications keep
progressing. Like you, I like the idea of owning my copy, even if it
becomes outdated if I don't renew the SMA. The annual license is great
for removing the barrier of entry for new JAWS users, but feels like a
fleeting thing that you lose if you cannot afford the annual license one
year.

If your last SMA was 2002, you may not be able to switch base to even a
professional SMA at this point. You are probably best to call FS Sales
and ask about your situation.

I purchased my SMA with a college trust fund back in 2002, as I was
going
to school back then. The SMA was a "Professional" license. I want to try
to change my recent home annual license to a perpetual license, but I'm
not sure how much it would cost to upgrade from one license to another.
Am I right when I hear that a perpetual license never expires?

I've noticed the same thing; my guess, off the top of my head, is that something has chhanged with the 2-chromium based browsers.

The question is what; and the work around or fix.

Will be interested in the feedback of others on this.

I've noticed the same thing; my guess, off the top of my head, is that
something has chhanged with the 2-chromium based browsers.

The question is what; and the work around or fix.

Then there’s support. If you want to get NVDA support, you really have to rely on the community, but you can hit FS directly.

 

Updates are also more frequent with JAWS, at least one a month now.

Hi James,

I find JAWS’s Office support better than NVDA’s, and also find it more responsive in Office applications.

Some of its productivity features are also really good like text analyzer.

This could be just my impression, but I also find the NVDA add-on process a bit messy, EG. a lot of add-ons always seem to break when NVDA is updated and it takes a while for them to get fixed. While I’m sure that does happen to external scripts and JAWS, it doesn’t feel as though it happens nearly as often.

Cheers,

Ed

been a long time NVDA user and occasionally dabbled in Jaws here and

still seems to have better braille support. I also don't know how many
organisations would be super happy with the idea of putting NVDA on a

fair amount of experience in both readers. Using Jaws recently also
told me that the overall look and feel hasn't really changed either,
so there was next to no learning curve when it came to reacquainting
myself. I know NV access have been working on this, but to my
understanding Jaws also seems to have better UIA support, something
that can only be a positive!
Looking forward to hearing from you,

Hi,

Just efficiency really.

A simple example is reading Email in Outlook 365. JAWS will continue to read the whole Email as soon as you open it, but NVDA will only read the first line and give all that garbage about HTML document and stuff. NVDA is simply not as polished as JAWS. In fact, Narrator does a better job with outlook than NVDA.

Just my personal opinion, but I'd say if you're a home user, NVDA is fine, but when the rubber hits the road, JAWS has more chops.

All the best

Steve

I agree with doing it this way, especially after I had the import utility refuse to import any of my settings from an export file. It is now also my preferred way to backup my settings.

Hi,
A better way in my view than using JAWS export/import stuff, is to go to Utilities, then Explore Utilities Folder, then Explore My Settings.
Once in there, Copy Control A and Control C, everything to the clipboard,  and paste it onto a USB stick or another drive.
Next go into the other JAWS machine, go to Utilities, Explore Utilities, Explore My Settings, and paste everything in there that you copied.
This assumes that both versions of JAWS are the same version, but all the scripts and everything should come over.

Does any one know of good references for copying JAWS settings from one computer to a second computer?  I have some scripts I want to be sure to have, amongst other settings, sounds, and things.

Hi Claudia,

 

There are loads. My own favourites are the VarioUltra displays from VisioBraille.

 

All the best

Hi,

 

I have only worked with the Focus 40 Blue, and my department at work is trying to get this for me.

However, it looks like it is currently sold out, so what other braille display could I research that will work well with JFW?

Or, is this the best one, since I believe it was made to work with Jaws?

Thanks.

 

Claudia

Hi,

 

A better way in my view than using JAWS export/import stuff, is to go to Utilities, then Explore Utilities Folder, then Explore My Settings.

 

Once in there, Copy Control A and Control C, everything to the clipboard,  and paste it onto a USB stick or another drive.

 

Next go into the other JAWS machine, go to Utilities, Explore Utilities, Explore My Settings, and paste everything in there that you copied.

 

This assumes that both versions of JAWS are the same version, but all the scripts and everything should come over.

 

All the best

 

Steve

I do not know. I suspect there is a user folder that can be copied in its entirety to capture custom scripts, etc. But since I have never done this, my advice here would be, at best, guess work.

You make a very good point, I installed Firefox 101 to avoid the context menu problems people are talking about in 102.

I still wish that Microsoft would resurrect Internet Explorer, but first take out all the active x crap. I always disabled it as a first step anyway. JAWS has never supported any browser as well as it supported Internet Explorer.

I've noticed the same thing; my guess, off the top of my head, is
that something has chhanged with the 2-chromium based browsers.

The question is what; and the work around or fix.

Will be interested in the feedback of others on this.

That makes no sense at all! Edge and Chrome are both based on the Chromium engine which is itself an open source project!
