Hi Maria!

That's the way i did it. Went into the system tray with insert F11 and entered on volum mixer. It's at its maximum.

Maybe my friend's brother's laptop hasn't got a very good sound quality.

It was very good of him to give me a loan of it till I get a new one.

Hi!

Could someone remind me how you turn the voice volum up in Jaws?

I've turned the speakers up with insert F11 to the highest, but Jaws is
still quite quiet.

in MacOs the menu tend to stay the same but what changes is the
content of menu depending on the appication your using? Are there
menus that stay the same all the time? How do you activate a Menu Item?
3. I also have a question about Jaws. There are some things that I
fell are really necessary. How do you make Jaws so that it describes
the time of item your on (menu, text field, table, icons or even a

It's all right if these things are someth- Jaws will say repeatedly

Not recognizing G is a windows 10 issue. It has to do with the game bar. bressing windows + G toggles it off and on. So if you find you cant get the g to type press windows + G then try again.
Hmm... Might be ctrl + G. Cant remember.

Then, i got this that i sent back which also went wrong on me.

I have a Toshiba that is about 4 years old. It was upgraded from Windows 8 to 10 and has 8 GB of Ram and runs OK with Jaws 2018, but it is nowhere near as responsive as the Dell.
At work we use Dell Latitudes which are more expensive as they are a business class laptop, but they work great!
We have 9 employees around the agency who are blind and use Jaws.

I'd shop around for prices as buying direct from Dell can be more costly.

I really like the laptop keyboards on the Dell machines. It has the full keyboard with the number pad since it is a 15.5 inch laptop.
I still use an external USB keyboard at work, but if I need to take my laptop with me on the road for work, I have no problems using the laptop's keyboard. We do not have any touch screen models, but when I replace my Toshiba, I may consider one.
Good luck.
Richard

Hi Richard!

The problem is, we only have pc world, and it was through them i got my first hp, which wouldn't recognize the letter G.  I took it back to them and asked if they would send it back to manufacturer, but when he tried it in the shop, he said"Can't send it back just for that" so i got my money back.

Then, i got this that i sent back which also went wrong on me.

I'll certainly look for these laptops.

Are the keys quite good on the one your wife bought?

I have a Toshiba that is about 4 years old. It was upgraded from Windows 8 to 10 and has 8 GB of Ram and runs OK with Jaws 2018, but it is nowhere near as responsive as the Dell.
At work we use Dell Latitudes which are more expensive as they are a business class laptop, but they work great!
We have 9 employees around the agency who are blind and use Jaws.

I'd shop around for prices as buying direct from Dell can be more costly.

Hi thanks i'll keep these in mind.

Are all models of laptops suitable for screen readers? and are all of them with touch screens?

Hi Moderators!

Just to let you know that I've had to send my computer back, and at
the moment, using an old one which my friend has installed Jaws and
my email address for me.

I will be getting for a new laptop as the company is giving me my
money back, but it certainly  won't be another Hp, as this is the
second one which has gone faulty on me.

I know you wouldn't or anyone would be allowed to recommend a model
but i just don't know which one to chose.
