I'm not having any issues with the Lenovo, other than access with the Lenovo settings.  I miss my Toshiba, but they are getting too expensive and hard to find.

The cool thing is that if you want to go back to where you stopped reading--as I often do with my students--just press the spacebar and it takes you there.

I just wait a moment and it goes away. I figured that was a "new feature" that is a tiny bit annoying since I usually don't want to resume reading. I have not checked to see if it is something to uncheck.
Have you googled it?

The simplest way to check is to hit windows-r and type in winver.

 

Mine, for example, says version 1803, which is the April 2018 version.  I'll bet a new computer from the store would have this version.  If that is what your friend has, she probably should be talking to Freedom Scientific to see if her version of jaws will actually work with it.

Re: Is there a reason to not upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

I think Siegart, sorry if I spelled your name incorrectly, hit the nail on the head when he talked about  the hard drive being on its last legs.  Maybe I am out of the loop of techies however, when I hear the term refurbished, I think new hard drive, new battery  and brand new operating system.  In this case, I think they just installed a windows 10 CD. It runs hot within 10 minutes. This is why I think it is running something it does not have the power to run and is basically working to hard.

The phonetic thing is actually a new feature. It’s meant to help out folks who may have hearing issues or would like a little more help with distinguishing between letters. This feature is also present in the iOS platform.

You can go into Jaws settings and adjust the delay for when the phonetic pronunciation is spoken or disable it all together.

The other thing, I have no idea.

Hello, again, everyone.

 

I have discovered two more problems with Jaws 2019 and Outlook 2016 on my Windows 7 laptop.

 

When I use the insert numpad 2 command to read an entire message, Jaws skips parts of lines.  I can read the complete lines by arrowing down through the message, but, as you can imagine, this gets quite cumbersome.

 

In addition, I have noticed that Jaws now gives phonetics for the first letter of a word when I navigate through a message that I’m composing, and I also notice that Jaws sometimes speaks the last character I type again after several seconds.

 

I seem to recall someone else having similar issues but am not sure how or whether they got resolved.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Hi, Tom. To turn off Phonetic Announcement:

 

1. Press INSERT plus six on the numbers row, not the NumPad.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load the default configuration of JAWS.

3. At the search box, type in, phonetic

4. Look for a selection which reads:

 

When pausing after character navigation, speak character phonetically,

 

5. Press the Space Bar until it says, Never.

6. TAB to OK, and press space to close.

 

Now, whenever you navigate characters with the Arrow keys, it won’t say the last character phonetically.

The phonetic thing is actually a new feature. It’s meant to help out folks who may have hearing issues or would like a little more help with distinguishing between letters. This feature is also present in the iOS platform.

You can go into Jaws settings and adjust the delay for when the phonetic pronunciation is spoken or disable it all together.

The other thing, I have no idea.

Hello, again, everyone.

 

I have discovered two more problems with Jaws 2019 and Outlook 2016 on my Windows 7 laptop.

 

When I use the insert numpad 2 command to read an entire message, Jaws skips parts of lines.  I can read the complete lines by arrowing down through the message, but, as you can imagine, this gets quite cumbersome.

 

In addition, I have noticed that Jaws now gives phonetics for the first letter of a word when I navigate through a message that I’m composing, and I also notice that Jaws sometimes speaks the last character I type again after several seconds.

 

I seem to recall someone else having similar issues but am not sure how or whether they got resolved.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Re: For a friend New desktop computer window 10 Jaws 17

Chris Hill
 

Well, my first question would be, which version of windows 10, it is changing about twice a year.  My second question would be, does a jaws 17 work on that new of a windows 10.  I suspect an upgrade  of jaws will be needed to fix the problem.

Hi Tom,
 
Here's where to go to turn off the phonetics.
From: Eric Damery
Go into the Settings Center, make sure that you get the Default file loaded (CTRL + SHIFT + D), and then search for "Phonetic". It should be the second
item in the list.

From: Hicks Steven (CORNWALL IT SERVICES) via Groups.Io
JAWS Key + 6, settings centre, shift+ctrl+d if you want to change the default behaviour.
In the search box, type Ph for Phonetic and you will find it in there.
I Have turned mine off as well.
Steven

Take care.  Mike.  Go Rams!

Hi, Tom. To turn off auto preview,

 

1. Open Outlook.

2. Press ALT plus V, followed by V.

3. Press ALT plus O for Other Settings.

4. TAB until you see a setting that reads:

 

Auto Preview Off, and make sure it is checked.

 

5. TAB to OK and press ENTER.

6. If necessary, TAB again to OK, and press ENTER.

 

Now Auto Preview should be turned off.

I just went into Jaws quick settings, and couldn’t find an option to disable phoenetics.

 

Am I not going to the right place?

Yes, you may need a driver.

It must depend on the specific model because I have two very new HP
laptops and neither had this issue.

Re: New Jaws subscription plan, why US only?

Roger Newell
 

I think 150 pounds is a bit expensive, but Sight and Sound has to make
some money from selling JAWS.

Hi,


I agree with you, I bet they will not reply either as its wrong they
don't offer the same prices worldwide as we all struggle no matter where
we live. As a matter of interest, I also saw that in the USA they have
an offer to renew their SMA licences, at a cost of US Dollars 60.00.
Here as of yesterday at Sight and Sound they quoted 150.00 pounds with
no upcoming specials envisaged. So how fair is that to us here?

Hi all
I sent a message to FS support asking why the new Jaws yearly subscription
plan is for US customers only, but I haven’t received any reply yet. Your
thoughts on this?

As I see it, they are basically saying that us users outside the US don’t
really require a more affordable way to purchase Jaws and that they are
only giving this more affordable option to people in the US.

I’m also wondering what for example will stop me from simply using a
friends US address when signing up for this plan. I doubt they’ll be
monitoring where a user is located while using it, I think the only
important thing to them is the address at sign up.
