What program are you using to process it? MS Word has a find and replace all edit  item in its edit menu.   Just put a space in the replace with field. Tom

Hi, I have a document I put into a document from an email. It has > all over. How do I find them all and delete them all at once? Thanks in advance. Judy & Libby

Glenn / Lenny
 

A question I have on this as well is,
If someone has the renuible license for say, 2019, and they are happy with that, is it less expensive to update the license in 2020, even if that person doesn't want 2020?
I know the annual fee is like 90 dollars, but it seems to me that if there is a newer version out, and the person wants to just keep using 2019, the fee should be less for an older Jaws.

Writing on both at the exact same time, grin, likely not, although I could very well be listening to two things at the same time. What you say does make sense, though. However, the licensing issue isn't really my main concern, since I'm enjoying learning more about the home annual one at the moment. By the way, I finally remembered to go to YouTube and search for videos about the home annual license, and I saw where someone had actually posted one where they activated, deactivated, and then reactivated the license on one of their computers. Thus, since I'm naturally curious and with that in mind, I was able to experiment and find out the answer to my other activation question. Then, for my purposes, that leaves me with only the changing email address question, and I see no other way than to contact FS about that as I do want to have everything with them now at my Gmail address.

Thanks all for your responses.

Vicky,
Are you going to be writing on both machines at the exact same time?

They phrase it that way so you wouldn't be at work and someone else be at home using your same licensed copy.

Or am I missing something?

Again, asking FS is the best thing to do before making any decisions.

HTH,

I'll have to go and take a look again, but if memory serves, technically unless I'm misunderstanding things, the license agreement says you can have the license activated on up to three computers, but you are limited to using it on one computer at a time, thus my wanting to keep the licenses separate.

I believe FS has no problem with you having your SMA Jaws on two devices.. I know you can have it on your home and work computers, no problem.

But, all your questions will be best answered by FS staff.

Good luck,

Subject: questions about the home annual license

Of course I can contact Freedom Scientific, and will likely do so early next week, but I figured I would ask here first just in case.

First, when logging into the portal for the home annual license and then going to the place to update ones profile, for some reason, updating the email address doesn't seem to be available. There's a checkbox to have a reminder sent when it's time to renew the license, but that won't help a lot if the person has changed their email address. So am I missing something here, or is it just not possible to update the email address online?

Second, I just recently purchased a used ElBraille 14 from someone, and I wanted to have that JAWS license separate from my SMA license for my main computer, so I could use them both at the same time if I wanted. That's why my questions now about the home annual license, as I just activated it for the ElBraille. Never mind, grin, that I've had this license for some time now, getting it a discount around convention time last year, and so only have a little over a couple of months on it left. Anyway, best I can tell, one is able to log in to the portal and deactivate and active license, or perhaps I should say an active use of that license. Thus, just out of curiosity, if I were to log into the portal and deactivate the ElBraille from another computer or phone, would the ElBraille automatically go into demo mode on boot up if not connected to the internet, or would the full license still work until I connected to the internet? Also, if I were to deactivate the license on the ElBrai
lle, I'm assuming I could reactivate it again if still during the term of the license?

My activation questions are more of a curiosity thing, especially since being used to notetakers and not using a braille display to work the computer, it took me forever to figure out how to write the at sign on the ElBraille so I could get logged into the portal to activate the thing, so I plan to leave it activated. It's going to be quite a learning curve going from the U2 Mini and occasional use of the Polaris to the ElBraille, but I'm looking forward to it.

Right you are.

It is so easy to fall into thinking the last update was earlier this month, o well.

That doesn’t change the behavior, just which version to blame, 😊.

There is no June update for Jaws.  I just checked the Freedom Scientific website to be sure, and the latest update for Jaws was released on May 19.  Thanks.

Vicky,
Are you going to be writing on both machines at the exact same time?

They phrase it that way so you wouldn't be at work and someone else be at home using your same licensed copy.

Or am I missing something?

I believe FS has no problem with you having your SMA Jaws on two devices. I know you can have it on your home and work computers, no problem.

But, all your questions will be best answered by FS staff.

Subject: questions about the home annual license

Of course I can contact Freedom Scientific, and will likely do so early next week, but I figured I would ask here first just in case.

First, when logging into the portal for the home annual license and then going to the place to update ones profile, for some reason, updating the email address doesn't seem to be available. There's a checkbox to have a reminder sent when it's time to renew the license, but that won't help a lot if the person has changed their email address. So am I missing something here, or is it just not possible to update the email address online?

Second, I just recently purchased a used ElBraille 14 from someone, and I wanted to have that JAWS license separate from my SMA license for my main computer, so I could use them both at the same time if I wanted. That's why my questions now about the home annual license, as I just activated it for the ElBraille. Never mind, grin, that I've had this license for some time now, getting it a discount around convention time last year, and so only have a little over a couple of months on it left. Anyway, best I can tell, one is able to log in to the portal and deactivate and active license, or perhaps I should say an active use of that license. Thus, just out of curiosity, if I were to log into the portal and deactivate the ElBraille from another computer or phone, would the ElBraille automatically go into demo mode on boot up if not connected to the internet, or would the full license still work until I connected to the internet? Also, if I were to deactivate the license on the ElBraille, I'm assuming I could reactivate it again if still during the term of the license?

My activation questions are more of a curiosity thing, especially since being used to notetakers and not using a braille display to work the computer, it took me forever to figure out how to write the at sign on the ElBraille so I could get logged into the portal to activate the thing, so I plan to leave it activated. It's going to be quite a learning curve going from the U2 Mini and occasional use of the Polaris to the ElBraille, but I'm looking forward to it.

I'd agree with Richard because it makes sense.
I would imagine an SMA is tied to JAWS and not the customer.

I never have that much open at once.

Without knowing the computer specs, this would be a hard thing to compare.

 

This could be as much system resources running low as anything.

 

Having said that, Jaws with the June update has issues with Outlook at the very least.  I have had more times than I can count where just opening an email renders Jaws speechless.

 

Now, of course, this could be, and probably is, because of the last Microsoft 365 update; but it can be rather frustrating.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5790 laptop, with the i7 chip and 16 GB of RAM and often only have Outlook open when this happens.

Hi Everybody,

 

Has anyone else noticed that JAWS becomes incredibly sluggish and crackling audio can be heard after about 2 or 2.5 hours of intensive use?

 

Try the following:

  1. Make sure the June JAWS update is running.
  2. Start Chrome or Edge.
  3. Open and use 10 or more tabs, switching between them and working intensively for about 2 hours. Observe that JAWS becomes less and less responsive over time and it is eventually necessary to restart JAWS.

 

Does anyone else out here experience this situation?

 

Thanks,

 

Darrell

There is no June update for Jaws.  I just checked the Freedom Scientific website to be sure, and the latest update for Jaws was released on May 19.  Thanks.

I don't do multiple tabs, but my machine is usually up for days at a time.  I've never had this problem . I'd probably try plugging in a pair of usb headphones when this happens.  If the problem goes away, it likely has something to do with the sound card driver, which may need updated, or rolled back.

Has anyone else noticed that JAWS becomes incredibly sluggish and crackling audio can be heard after about 2 or 2.5 hours of intensive use?

 

Try the following:

  1. Make sure the June JAWS update is running.
  2. Start Chrome or Edge.
  3. Open and use 10 or more tabs, switching between them and working intensively for about 2 hours. Observe that JAWS becomes less and less responsive over time and it is eventually necessary to restart JAWS.

 

Does anyone else out here experience this situation?

 

Thanks,

 

Darrell

I run into this crackling issue from time to time, but very infrequently. I would say I use Jaws pretty intensely, I don't always have 10 browser tabs open, but I do work often for several hours with very few breaks with at least 3 or 4 tabs open as well as Outlook, Excel a couple of Notepad files and Adobe sometimes with 2 or 3 PDF files open. At times I even use Edge as well as Chrome at the same time so instead of opening more tabs in Edge I may use Chrome and as I said, I come across this very rarely and I have never noticed anything which would allow me to reproduce it..

Just for a convenient, compact record, all three of the following commands seem to act as "throw focus to the address bar and select the web address for copying," across all web browsers:
  1. F6
  2. ALT+D
  3. CTRL+L

I recommend Alt + D as well, F6 and Alt + L also do this, but depending on the browser you may have to press F6 twice to get there as is the case in Edge.

I always used F6 just as I always used Control + Enter to send a message in Outlook, but once I started using Edge as my default browser I decided to get used to using Alt + D because I didn't feel like pressing F6 twice and I retrained myself the same way in Outlook to use Alt + S to send a message because quite some time ago I found that Control + Enter would not work consistently any more.

F6 also brings you to the address bar where the URL is already highlighted. This is universal for all web browsers.

Along with why one would want to do that, is Mattias asking if you can install voices in another drive as well?  That part of the question wasn’t clear; but the obvious answer is the voices go where FS needs them to go; which will be drive C along with the main program.

Jaws is complicated enough without adding another layer.

My question would be why you would want to install it elsewhere?

Hello there:

 

No version of JAWS for DOS nor, any version of JAWS for Windows has there ever been included an option as to where you can install JAWS. The company, under whatever it has been called, has always determined the directory/folder where JAWS is to b installed/located.
