Not for windows 8.1. Windows 10 has the classic startup.

Hello, everyone.  I am running Windows 8 and was wondering if there is a box to click on to get my classic startup menu back.  Or, do I need to download classic shell?  Thank you.

Chuck,

No need. The Home version is the same as the professional version, except
for one thing: professional is more expensive.

in the past when there was more of an issue of using professional versions
of Windows such as in Windows Vista or 7 the professional version of Jaws
had to be used. I'm not sure if there are differences now with the latest
versions of Windows as since I had to upgrade several years ago I keep
upgrading the professional version of JAWS.

It costs more, and is aimed at users who are using JAWS at their place of
employment. The higher price is often footed by the employer. No functional
difference.

While on the web, press insert v, then arrow down to forms mode and experiment with manual, auto or semi-auto forms mode.

Hi Ken,
 
Do you have any links to information on this new note-taker.  I did not see any mention at Freedom Scientific’s web site.

Hi listers, ken here.  listening to the new FS cast.  haven’t gotten to it yet, but freedom scientific has unveiled the new L braille notetaker this is a windows 10 based, jaws based notetaker.  how does it compare to the pac mate and is this ment to replace the pac mate?  any word on cost or on when tutorials will be available?  thanks much.

Listers: In windows 7, jaws 17, Magic13 and Chrome: I tried Magic 13 along with J17. In Magic I am using aa high contrast screen and cursor enhancements on. I think I am getting a slightly better performance on difficult sites like the New York Times. I am not bragging much about this, just reporting what I think I am experiencing.

 The PACmate is obsolete anyway. They may still sell it, but it will never be updated again. I don't think you could fairly compare these two.

I seen this unit at the CSUN conference yesterday. It feels great, has so many buttons. You can do many things with this unit. Very powerful. The representative didn't say anything about the pet mate being replaced by this unit.

WRT the dots that don't come up: If you're connecting via USB try disconnecting for at least half a minute, with the display turned off. Then plug it in again and if you're excruciatingly lucky they might work.

Eloquence and pitch wasJaws and ear pain

Thank you Ted. I had completely forgotten to look at the different voice contexts so had totally forgotten that Eloquence had more voice adjustments.

Neat idea; wish I'd thought of it. By the way, pitch is adjustable in Eloquence, as long as you adjust one voice at a time.

Hi Tony!

This is a far-out suggestion, and I draw it from the world of ham radio. Hams are expert on frequencies, filters, sub-audible tones, harmonics and everything to do with the generation of sound. You might want to contact the ham radio club in your local area, go to one of their meetings and explain your problem. As a ham myself, I can assure you that you would be warmly welcomed whether or not you are a ham. Many hams are retired computer, electrical and radio engineers. They *love* tinkering and building contraptions. They would relish grappling with your problem. FYI, I am going to forward your message below to the "blind ham user group" to see if anyone has encountered your problem. If I get any meaningful response, I will forward such back to you on this list.

HTH,
Richard

Hi all.

(This is my first message, so I beg your pardon if this group is not the right place for such a question).

I am a new user of JAWS and I have a weird problem: my ears hurt when I try to use JAWS for longer than 3-4 hours a day. I am wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this and if there are any suggestions on how to solve or alleviate the problem?


Here is my story in more details. Recently I developed some eyesight problems. I have taught myself to use JAWS, but quickly figured out, that after 3-4 hours of daily usage my ears start to hurt. I tried different voices - no difference, my ears start to hurt after about the same time no matter what the voice is. I tried male, female, human-like and synthesized voices - all alike. I tried voiceover on mac too, same result. The volume is set to minimum at which I can still recognize words, so it is not loud at all. I tried laptop speakers, external speakers, headphones - no difference. I have seen a few ear doctors, but none of them have any idea what's going on. I don't have any other ears problems, except for mild ear ringing, but that is due to teeth grinding during my sleep.
I can listen to real human voices such as audiobooks or radio programs for the whole day (12 hours) without any pain.
I am curious if anyone has experienced anything like this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you
Tony
