weird jaws message

mike mcglashon
 

Hey guys:

 

I am using jaws beta3 2019 version with win10, (don’t know all the billing numbers); and msword I think (2016)

This also happens in msoutlook 2016 as well.

 

When I am typing, jaws arbitrarily says something like: “actions undo autoactions”;

First of all, what is this message,

Where is it coming from, (is it coming from the programs, or from jaws itself?);

How do I get rid of this annoying message?

If it happened only once in a while, it wouldn’t be so bad, but it is happening all the time, even when I arrow back to what I typed prior?

 

Is there some setting that turns on and off this sort of indicator?

 

Please advise as necessary?

 

Mike m.

Re: Trying to format a krupt usb stick

 

I'm not quite sure what "corrupt" means in this instance.

It is possible for thumb/jump/flash drives used to create bootable media can seem to lose a lot of the capacity they once had.  The folks who created MemTest86 have a lesser known utility, ImageUSB, that has as its primary purpose creating multiple bootable USB drives using the same ISO image at one time.  It can also be used, however, to reclaim that "lost" space on those drives that experience it by using the "Zero USB drive" option in the utility.

I've had 2 USB thumb drives that have had the "lost capacity" issue after being used to create bootable media and using ImageUSB to zero them out again has reclaimed it each time.

Re: NS Word and JAWS Becoming Sluggish with Large File

Hi Chris!

 

Huh, this is interesting.  Well, my c: drive is a solid state drive (SSD).  Does error checking appertain to an SSD as it does as regards a hard disk drive (HDD)?  Does an SSD have “sectors” as does an HDD?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hello.

 

 I used a similar setup for many years with one document that is currently near 400 pages without a problem.  First thing I'd do in your situation is to scan your disk for errors, even if windows says it is fine make it scan anyway.  I've found an epidemic of disk errors on my machines lately, fixing them usually improves the speed.  Open up this pc, get properties on your c: drive, go to tools and run error checking on your drive.

Hi Bill,

 

Thanks for your below.  I did not know about the archived nature of a Word file.  I do not think, regrettably, that this leads me to a solution however.  Incidentally, I can understand *why* Word does this, though.  The reason is that a Word file actually contains *a lot* of HTML and CSS formatting data.  Someone else on the list did say that JFW 2019 is supposed to fix this sluggishness problem.

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hi, Richard. I have noticed this as well. It happened when I used to use Word 2003, and it sometimes still happens as I use Word 2010. I don’t know if upgrading to a later version of Word will help this. I suspect not. You know, the doc and docx files generated in Word are actually archive files, and you can actually open the archives with 7-zip. In other words, doc and docx files are actually zip files containing a few folders and several files. I never thought this was a good way to handle the creation of word processing files. There’s just too much going on inside Word for it to remain stable as the contents of the archive grows.

Re: Trying to format a krupt usb stick

 

What size does it format to with Windows? I have never had a stick not format correctly using the format option in Windows.
But Don is correct, you never get the full size, a 32 Gb stick will probably hold about 28 Gb after formatting.
