Hi,

Before you try out Google Chrome you should know there problems ahead for
you if you install Chrome on your computer. Last year I had an application
force install Chrome on my computer during an installation. When I went to
remove Chrome it left my registry all screwed up. In the end the only thing
that would put my computer back to working mode was a system restore that I
had created some days before. My advice try it out if you want just make a
system restore point so you can restore your registry if you want to get
read of Chrome. If you already have Chrome never remove it from your
computer. If you do a Google search you'll see they've been having a problem
with Chrome and the registry since 2009.

There are still plenty of annoying little things (for instance, the list of
emails on the gmail page is not recognized as a table, whether that is a
chroam thing or a jaws thing I haven't looked into) but I could see them
being minor enough that someone could actually use chroam now (which was not
the case the last time I tried it).

Chrome and it should work fine.

I just stopped using quickbooks at the end of 2012 and now use the fully accessible Accomplish Business Cash Manager software and it was made to be used with JAWS. It's made in New Zealand but distributed in the USA by A company in Michigan, "Triumph" I think is the name.

If it is an HP laptop, you will need to get someone who can see, to go into

If you do not have anyone sighted who can do this for you, take the laptop

Ms Office 2010
Microsoft Security Essentials

Here is my question, though. This is a laptop, so I have Jaws set to laptop keyboard. I cannot use the Alt f4 combination to close programs. I have to press Alt and then arrow up to close or Exit. I also cannot use Insert plus f12, to tell me the time; Jaws just stays silent.
So, I'm thinking this has to do with my Function keys?
What do I have to do, in order to get them working correctly?
Thanks.

Claudia

Re: Jaws & Function Keys

Sue
 

Claudia,

There is likely a key on that keyboard called the Fn key. It is often on the left side adjacent to the control key. If you press it along with the Alt key and then F4 the exit command will work. The function keys have, on many new laptops, been assigned to other functions, like play and volume controls, etc. this means that if you want toe use the common commands on the row of function keys you have to have that Fn key pressed along with Ctrl or Alt or Jaws key.

Has anyone here ever found a way, using the Bios to change this on laptops that behave this way? It is quite inconvenient.
