moderated Static problem has come back

kevin meyers
 

Hello, As some of you may know I had the static problem when Jaws speakes. I was able to stop this from occurring by disabling enhancements under the sound card. I just installed Duxbury software for sending text to my Braille printer. When in Duxbury the static was back. I went into word and it was static like it was before. Now it is not just when typing, it is all the time. I closed out of everything and rebooted. The static noise went away. I went into word and there was no static. I then went into Duxbury and the static came back. I checked enhancements under the sound card and it was still disabled. Now what? Is there something on the internet that gives ratings for sound cards?

So is Whats App, but you must know more about Nino, why would you assume he has an iPhone?
Skype is also accessible on the iPhone, maybe more so than on the PC although it's hard to say why he couldn't make a Skype call on the PC without knowing what version of Windows he runs and which Skype version and also what problem exactly he encountered.

Hello,

 

I’m just starting to use Windows 10 and I have a problem with using Internet Explorer. I do a search on some item. It then comes up with a list of possible options. I down arrow and Jaws reads the list and I can never get off it. It just keeps repeating the list. I then try to tab and the same thing happens. Do I need to do something to Internet Explorer? Or does Jaws need to have some option turned on or off?

 

Cheers,

Hi,
To me, that's not normal, although for a while it has become normal for JAWS to start with some delay (likely to fire up components). To really test this is a JAWS thing, try with Narrator and see if makes sense.

Jaws is lagging. For instance, after restart, it takes 15 seconds for jaws to come up. When I hit the fingerprint it takes jaws time to come up. I called Freedom with no success. I tried to set Jaws as a priority but when I restart that setting doesn't stick. Does anyone have any suggestions, and have you been able to make jaws as a priority remain  as set?
Thank you.

Bill suggestion of turning off enhancements under the sound card settings eventually worked.

I got frustrated and turned off the laptop. I came back the next day and there is no more static. Not sure why it had to sit over night before things were fixed.

A simple thing to check first is to clean the connection between your speakers and your computer.  A static charge can build up there.  Unplug your speakers from the back of the computer and wipe the plug off with connection cleaner if you have it or just wipe it off if you do not.  Plug the speakers back into the same outlet and see if that takes care of it.

Unfortunately, every soundcard’s settings and options are different. I have two computers, and the options are different for each one. I don’t know what to tell you, since you have already checked for updated drivers for your soundcard.

I turned off enhancements and it stopped the static. I rebooted and the static was back. I checked enhancements and it was off. I could not find sound affects under the sound card. Do you know where that is at under the sound card? Also ever once and a while it makes a clicking noise coming out of the left side of the laptop. I should also say the static only comes from letter keys and punctuation. The number keys on the top row or the numpad don’t create any static. Now what?

Hello, I just got a new Acer Inspire 5 laptop. I installed Jaws2018. Whenever I’m in MS word or Excel there is static when Jaws speaks. I should say it only occurs when I type. Freedom Scientific suggested I get the most recent version which came out today. It helped a little. They also suggested I change to echo by word and not character. I then checked the sound card drivers and they are all up to date. I did all of these things and it helped a little. I then shut the laptop down and came back a few hours later. Well the static was back and even worse. It now has a problem on the internet using Internet Explorer. It is so bad I can hardly make out what Jaws is reading on the internet. I wonder if Acer is just using cheap sound cards. I had an Acer a few months ago and they same thing happen. That is why I got this one and hoped the problem would not exist. Does anyone have any suggestions? Cheers Kevin

Hi Cristóbal,
 
I know exactly what you mean, & how you & many others feel.  I don't want to mention the particular employees name because I don't want this person to lose their job if it is indeed a mistake.  But, I asked this person why others sales people make this offer, & this person said because it all depends on who you talk to to get this deal.  So, I'm inclined to believe that it might not be something that most will offer, but I just happened to catch the right person at the right time, with the right situation.  I upgraded a person that is elderly, a low fixed income, & no way in hell of ever getting upgraded if it wasn't for several things coming together, but most of all, this offer I couldn't let pass!

Hi Mike,

To be clear, while I’m current with my Jaws and thus this wouldn’t really affect me, I’d like for this to be true since it would help people in general.

I’m just skeptical in that it’s only one VFO person who said this where even the whisper of such a program hasn’t really been brought up before.

Like I said, I’m more inclined to think that there may have been some misinformation given out by one rep, but I’d be happy to be proven wrong.

I guess it can be an incentive to get more folks current so they and VFO can in turn get away from older OS’s like Vista and Windows 7, but on the other hand, if an upgrade is so cheap, where’s the incentive to stay current in the first place? I remember having to shell out around $440 to catch up on a two or three cycle upgrade back in the day. So yeah, that wasn’t fun.

I’m going to guess that Eric Damery if not overwhelmed with the CSUN stuff this week will chime in on this thread to clarify either way.

Hello 
Fusion will install Jaws 2018 if you install The Talky the fusion 2018 or if you have drawers 2018 already installed it will update Jaws.


And you have the same text Fusion 11 installed Fusion 2018 one stall Jose 2018 as well so they'll be two copies of Jaws installed. That if you don't have Jaws 2018 already installed.
I hope you all are having a wonderful day.

I have a copy of ZoomText Fusion 11 on my computer and also have a stand alone copy of JAWS 2018 as well. I just purchased an SMA a while back and wnt to migrate over to Fusion 2018 so the question is will it see my copy of JAWS 2018 and not install that portion of Fusion or will there be a second copy installed? Moving forward I will just be picking up SMAs for Fusion however I happen to have licenses for both.

 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

As was mentioned in the original message, she was a Windows Eyes refugee. So who knows, maybe she just wasn’t’ up on her training. That or perhaps she was confuddled with a CSUN offer that may be going on right now.

I’m going to guess that Eric Damery if not overwhelmed with the CSUN stuff this week will chime in on this thread to clarify either way.

Most likely is that this is probably too good to be true and customer service staff (mainly Window Eyes transplants) are going to be sent a memo regarding the same.

Hi, Mike. I just called VFO to inquire about this new plan, whereby people who have gotten behind in their upgrades for the home version could upgrade to the latest version of JAWS for $200. The lady I spoke with at VFO disputed this. Can you give more information as to the person with whom you spoke?

 

Thank you.

Hi All,

 

The other day I called VFO / Freedom Scientific to see if they had any new financial plans for people that had gotten way behind because of financial difficulties, & wanted to get upgraded / updated to the latest version.  Well, to my surprise what I found out was absolutely fantastic!  A friend needed to be updated because he was at Jaws 11 & he needed to be upgraded to be compatible with the Windows 7 system he is moving to from XP.  Okay to cut this short, I found out people can be upgraded from Jaws 11 to Jaws2018 for $200.00.  The lady I talked to was a Window Eyes transplanted employee & she didn't know how long this financial plan had been in place.  So for all you that need to be upgraded but have financial difficulty, don't be afraid to call & inquire about new financial / payment plans!  This $200.00 plan is only for the Home versions.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Is there any other alterative to skype?

Hello.

Reinstalling Windows won't change the locking code. This means that when you enter the authorization number, Jaws will use the same license that you had and won't count an other activation.
In case tech service changes something else and the locking code changes, you get three activations and can request three more for free if you need them.

Best.

hi list

It looks like I will have to reinstall jaws on my laptop 64 bit win 10 system. How many reactivations do I get with jaws home use?

I have a feeling will have to send it to the shop to be reconfigured to factory defaults.

Kind wishes

Good Morning All,

I am currently working with our provincial government here in Nova Scotia on
standards development for the recently enacted accessibility legislation,
and the team wants to use Microsoft Teams to manage the project
communication. Can anyone give me insight to how well it works with JAWS 16
and Windows 10?

Thanks,

Cynthia
