Re: windows 10 and windows 7

Robert Logue
 

Hi Sieghard .  Thanks for answering this question I've had for a long time.  I had startup sound checked but it wouldn't play every time. I thought my pc was broken because sometimes the windows sound would be choppy and crackly. Even after a Windows refresh. And, it wouldn't play every boot up.

I recently turned fast start off and did notice a difference. But, it is still crackly and choppy at times.  I guess Windows struggles to get going.


At least I know it wasn't just my pc but the fast start that was a problem.  Another mystery solved.

I'm not obsessing about the sound. It's just this pc has always had reliability issues.


Thanks for clearing up one mystery for me.

The startup sound is not checked in Windows 10 by default. However, you also have to disable fast startup for the sound to play reliably, here are the steps:

Turn Off Win10 Fast Startup
1. Open Control Panel then select Power Options. This is presuming that you're using the classic "Small Icons" view in Control Panel. If not, navigate to the "View by" control and select "Small Icons," then navigate to Power Options.
2. Activate the Choose what the power button does link on the left side of the dialog.
3. In the dialog just opened, activate Change settings that are currently unavailable link.
4. Scroll down to the Shutdown settings section.
5. Remove the check mark from the Turn on Fast Startup (Recommended) checkbox.
6. Select the Save Changes Button.

Sieghard

Hi!

When windows 7 was on the go, when you put it on to boot up, there
used to be a sort of jingle, but windows 10 doesn't have that.

I used to like that, then you could be sure your computer was actually

Re: New computer

 

I never enable the checkboxes on desktop icons and files. Whichever icon you are on that is the one that is selected.
Anyhow, here is how to get rid of that:
1. Press Windows key to open the search edit field
2. Type "file explorer options", probably as soon as you type the "o" from options it will pop up and you can press enter. This is a Control Panel item so you can also go to the control panel and type "f" and you'll get there.
3. Press Control+
Tab once to go to the "View " tab of the File Explorer Options and tab once to get into the treeview.
4. Press "U", this should go straight to where you need to be, if not arrow most of the way down, the item is called "Use checkboxes to select items", you need to press the spacebar to turn that off.
5. Tab to "OK" and it's done.

Sieghard

Have you run disk cleanup and done a malicious program scan like malware or adware or maybe a virus of some sort I don't know never seen that before.
Now I understand what's going on when you turn the computer on it just randomly opens up when you up correct?

It is not Narrator itself that comes up, but the ease of access setting

This doesn't even happen all the time but sporadically.

yes, if you import the sounds from the sounds dialog in the dictionary
manager. you can also copy and paste the sounds you want to use directly
into the folder. you will also find a sounds folder in the path where
shared settings are found.

Maybe you have accidentally gotten into "Tablet Mode". In the Windows 10 settings, type "tablet" in the search edit field and adjust your preferences if necessary.

How to stop JFW17 from Repeating Status Line in MSW2016

Dani Pagador
 

Hi, Everyone.
I'm trying to reformat a document in Word 2016 and am using Win10 and
JFW17. When I go to change a style, sometimes JFW repeats the status
line and doesn't stop. I have to save the document, get out of Word,
and go back in to get JFW to cooperate with me and keep reading the
document itself so I can keep working.

I've looked in the Quick Settings and can't find anything that could
point to a fix for this. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Dani

Re: windows 10 and windows 7

 

Here is how I do it:

1. Press Jaws Key+F11 to bring up the system tray items
2. Find your speakers/volume, it may say "Speakers" followed by a sound volume in percent like 70%, it may also say "Realtec" or whatever your soundcard manufacturer is, but it's pretty obvious
3. Press enter on that, you now have a little submenu with things like Open Volume Mixer, Playback Devices, Recording Devices, Sounds and pissibly Volume Control Options. These are the items on my Windows 7 computer (I'm at work), but 'Windows 10 should be similar, just look for "Sounds" and press enter.
4. You are now probably on the "Windows Default" sound scheme, press tab until you find "Play Windows Startup Sound" and make sure it is checked.
5. Make sure you continue to tab after you check it until you get to OK and then press enter or spacebar.

Now if you also make sure Fast Startup is disabled (I posted the steps for this in my last email) you should get the Windows Startup sound. Of course if you have set Jaws to speak at the login screen you should also hear Jaws starting to speak, if you enable the startup sound it will be almost at the same time or right after the startup sound plays.

Sieghard

Subject: windows 10 and windows 7

Hi!

When windows 7 was on the go, when you put it on to boot up, there
used to be a sort of jingle, but windows 10 doesn't have that.

I used to like that, then you could be sure your computer was
actually booted up!

Would be good to know what other peoples opinions are.

Mine doesn't work even after I have checked the startup sound, and turned
off fast start up.

The startup sound is not checked in Windows 10 by default. However, you also
have to disable fast startup for the sound to play reliably, here are the
steps:

Turn Off Win10 Fast Startup
1. Open Control Panel then select Power Options. This is presuming that
you're using the classic "Small Icons" view in Control Panel. If not,
navigate to the "View by" control and select "Small Icons," then navigate to
Power Options.
2. Activate the Choose what the power button does link on the left side of
the dialog.
3. In the dialog just opened, activate Change settings that are currently
unavailable link.
4. Scroll down to the Shutdown settings section.
5. Remove the check mark from the Turn on Fast Startup (Recommended)
checkbox.
6. Select the Save Changes Button.

Regards,
Sieghard

I get a startup sound just fine -- go into sounds and shift tab and right
arrow till it says sound schemes and see if the box is checked for startup
sound.

PDF with JAWS 17 and Internet Explorer

Jessica R.
 

Hi:
I can open PDF's in IE, but, if I press alt for the menu JAWS
totally flips out! I've tried on Google Chrome as well and I can't
open it; it comes up with a button that says "open embedded document"
which does absolutely nothing when I hit enter, space, or enter with
space. Any suggestions?

Hi, Robert. Try your settings folder again, but instead of My Settings, try sounds under Shared Settings.

Their is a sounds folder in your Jaws user settings folder.

I just checked but there is nothing in mine. I guess that would be where
custom sounds you assign would be saved?


You can find a lot of things with the Jaws utility, Explore utility folder.

Right, but if one wanted to use a custom sound, it would be necessary to know where the folder is, unless there isn't one and they are simple part of the program.

Richard, the sounds may be unique to JAWS because most, if not all, come
from the VFO employees and are probably used in particular features of
JAWS). but they're plain old wav files (nothing special).

I just took a look at this. Quite interesting. You hit add, then tab
over to the list of sounds.

I'm curious, where do those sound files reside?

Are they part of the Windows sounds, or unique to Jaws?

Thanks,
Richard

Hello all,


Is there a way to substitute punctuation marks with custom sounds? I am
a developer and often times I have to listen to tongue twisters of
punctuation marks, like "left bracket right brace left paren ..." I wish
to replace all these parens and brackets with sounds. Is there a way to
do so in Jaws?


Thanks

Does that mean you have to go into the control pannel when you want to switch it off?

I've been doing that, but when i switch the computer on again, back it comes.
