Re: Curious about how to do a JAWS uninstall and reinstall

David Moore
 

Hi,
When JAWS is not talking, you can use Narrator to do everything you have to do. Narrator works well in win10, and you can tab to the buttons with Narrator. Here is what I would do. When you uninstall JAWS, Press Windows key + enter. This will turn on Narrator. Now, go to where you have the JAWS download. You can do this perfectly with Narrator. Now, press enter on the right JAWS file. As soon as you do this, JAWS will start talking to you again to take you through the install. Then, just press windows key + enter to turn Narrator back off. It is a toggle. Windows key + enter turns it on, and the same command turns it off. Windows key + enter to turn on Narrator is everything. It actually works pretty good just to find something on your computer. Let me know how this goes. Have a great one.

Hi,

I understand one must uninstall and reinstall JAWS 17 after updating to Windows 10.

How does one do this without a screen reader? Previous versions of JAWS have to be uninstalled before the Windows 10 update.

Any step-by-step instructions will be appreciated.

Re: WLM message problem..

Gerald Levy
 

 
This “stuck” messages problem has happened to me a few times for no apparent reason.  I fixed this problem by focusing on the “stuck” messages in the In Box, performed a Select All command (Control-A), and pressed the Delete key to move the selected messages to the DeletedItems folder.  I then unloaded WLM and relaunched it, which seemed to fix the problem and restore the In Box  to normal.  I could then go to the DeletedItems folder and open and read the “stuck” messages.

Hi all.
Using W10, and Jaws17, and WLM12.
There are some messages in my In Box that I cannot neither delete or read.
I have tried many things to do both including the below.
1. First did a repair of WLM
2. tried going into the Applications menu for both and tried delete or open and nothing.
3. Tried “enter or delete “ and nothing.
4. Went to script manager and did a compile..nothing
5. Went to Google, and not much more there than I have tried.
 
What you think of a complete uninstall of WLM andthen a install?
I also have tried shutting off the computer and re-starting.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks,
Morey

I've been doing my own editing for ages. There's nothing like doing your own work! I know how to format using Jaws and it works out well. Now my biggest problem is numbering the pages while not having a visible number on the first page. JB

To get to internet explorer:

1.Type "Internet Explorer" in the Cortana/Search box. Saying "Hey Cortana, open Internet Explorer" isn't useful here.

Note: you can also just press your windows key and type Internet Explorer.

2.Right click on "Internet Explorer" or use your applications key to:

                add as a tile on your Start Menu click "Pin to Start."

add it on your taskbar simply click "Pin to taskbar."

 

Setting Internet Explorer or Firefox as your default browser in Windows 10.

 

Press your windows key.

Arrow up to “Settings” and press enter.

There will be a dialog (pop up) window. Tab until you hear “System. Display, notifications, apps, power”. Press Enter

You will now hear the word “display”. Press down arrow until you hear “Default Apps”

Press tab on “Default Apps”

Now press tab until you hear “Web Browser” Press Enter.

There will be another pop up window press tab until you hear the browser you want to be your default. Press enter on your selection.

Press Alt F4 to close the window.

 

I hope this helps!

The extension to the file should just tell you the file type (JAWS should read Doc, docx, or pdf). I will email you instructions on how to set your default browser to Internet Explorer or Firefox.

What if I don’t know what the file type is so I wouldn’t know whether to choose Word or Adobe Reader?

Instead of pressing enter, press your applications key. Down arrow to “open with”, press right arrow and then down arrow until you find the program you want to use to open the document. You can set Internet Explorer or Firefox as your default browser as well.

Can someone tell me if this program, which seems to be new with Windows 10 is Jaws accessible? For instance, I entered on a file I wanted to open and the Edge launched, but I can’t figure out how to actually access the file I want.

 

Thank you.

Re: MS Edge and Jaws?

 

Hi,

I’d say it all depends on how Microsoft will keep up with demand and keeps its promises of improved accessibility. Support for Microsoft Edge is a huge step forward, as other things in Windows 10 uses Edge based controls (including Microsoft Account log-in screen under Settings/Accounts). However, I think Freedom Scientific should take an active role in this endeavor, as support for Edge means improved handling of UI Automation controls (there are two screen readers that are known to even interact with Edge at this point, and it isn’t JAWS). My hope is that, by JFW 18, Edge support would be included.

To change your default browser in Windows 10, press Windows+I, navigate to System/Default Apps, select web browser (press SPACE), press TAB to go to something other than Edge, press SPACE and you are good to go (I’ll write a wiki article regarding this question and will send it to this list today).

Cheers,

Joseph

I have heard it will be close to a year before Edge is completely screen reader friendly.  I think I was doing a webinar with FS and someone asked a question about accessibility of Edge and that was the answer.
