Hi, Dacia. You can do a repair of your newest JAWS, however, you did say that you tried to uninstall it. It gave you an error when you tried to uninstall it. Therefore, I don’t know if the uninstall actually went through. If it did, you will first need to reinstall the newest JAWS. If you still get the error you mentioned which you got when installing JAWS, then you must do a repair.



to do the repair:

1. Run the JAWS Installer again. It will detect that JAWS has already been installed. It will come up with a “Repair” button.

2. Press ENTER or SPACE on that button, and the JAWS repair should begin.

Yes, knowing how to do a repair would be great. Also, for some reason, it’s not even coming on when I boot my computer. I thought I had checked the check box that said start at login screen and the chip box it said start after log on as well. But it does not, so I have to open an older version of jaws. Can I do a repair on the new were version well I’m running an older version since the new were version is it working?

Hi everyone,



For some reason my JAWS 2018 wasn't starting at the log-in screen so

I had my husband help me log in then asked him to click on jaws 2018

so w could launch it and I could change the settings to make it start

at log-in but when I click on it it says something like ordinal45

can't be found in link library or something like that. I tried to

uninstall the jaws 2018 and it says the uninstall failed.

Any suggestions on what to do? I'm using jaws 18 until I can fix it.

thanks,



Dacia

hi guys:
I have been following this red thread for sometime;
I have jaws 20:1812.17.54;
Windows 1064 bit machine;
I went and did the repair as Mr. Bill described;
And I found that when using the shift of 10 applications menu to recognize a PDF from FileExplorer it does absolutely nothing the virtualize or window does not come up.
However when I opened it like Mr. Bill said to;
And open it and do an insert space oh then db it does work.
Do I have to actually read do I have to actually reinstall jaws 2018 to correct the problem?

Hi, Sieghard. Most people think they need Adobe Acrobat Reader to use the Recognize with JAWS feature, because they are trying to use the INSERT plus SPACE, O, D method. This is causing confusion. When using the Right Click method on a file, you don’t need any kind of viewer for the file. That’s why I say they are not the same. They both use JAWS, but the INSERT plus SPACE, O, D method always requires a third-party application to complete the process. The Right Click method never requires a third-party application to complete the process.

Hi Bill,

 

Yes, I don’t claim otherwise, all I am saying that both ways use Jaws Convenient OCR and the results will be the same, just two ways to skin a cat. What was posted before (not sure who posted it any more) sounded like using the “Recognize with Jaws” context menu option was completely different or independent from opening the PDF document in ACrobate Reader and using the layered command.

Hi, Sieghard. Contrary to what you are saying, Opening a PDF file and using the layered keystroke Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by O and D is not the same as Right Clicking on the item and using the Recognize with JAWS feature. In order to use the INSERT plus SPACE BAR, O, D feature, you must have the document open in Adobe Reader or some other pdf viewer. This is not true for the “Recognize with JAWS feature. If you don’t believe me, uninstall your pdf reader and try the Recognize with JAWS feature. It will still work. The INSERT plus SPACE, O, D feature will not work this way. The file must already be open in order to use INSERT plus SPACE, O, D.

Here a few clarifications:

 

1. Opening a PDF file and using the layered keystroke Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by O and D is the same as right clicking on the file in Windows Explorer and selecting “Recognize with Jaws”. Both use the Jaws convenient OCR feature to perform OCR on the image file and the result is displayed in the virtual viewer.

 

2. In Jaws 2018 using the Windows Explorer method and the “Recognize with Jaws” menu option is not limited to PDF files, it works on any image file, PDF, JPG, TIF, BMG etc.

 

3. If you have Jaws 2018 and the “Recognize with Jaws” option Is not present in the application/right click menu when you are on an image file then something definitely went wrong during the installation. I have Jaws 2018 installed on 2 Windows 10 laptops (one old and one quite new) as well as on several Windows 7 desktops at work and on all machines the “Recognize with Jaws” item is in the context menu. I think Convenient OCR is one of the best features of Jaws and I use it often multiple times each day when I get invoices or other documents which are just images and not accessible PDF’s.

Sieghard

Hi Jim,

 

According to what Dave had sent before, it is Insert+Windows-key+f4.

That seems to reset jaws on the fly.

You’ll want to wait a little until you hear Jaws announce itself again.

He did say though, they were a bit expensive. He was just wondering if they would work with Jaws that was all

I don’t know about this router. What I do know is how the big, wealthy internet-based technology companies make their money. Companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter offer virtually zero customer service and support. If they did, their offerings would not be free or cheap.
Apple charges more for its products, but it delivers a fantastic experience.

Richard,

 

Just give the JAWS three-finger salute and see what happens. Personally, I think the later versions of JAWS are subject to some serious memory leaks, as evidenced by my system becoming less responsive over time until I restart JAWS and wake things up again.

I just tried going to a folder of PDF’s with Windows Explorer on Windows 10 Home 64 bit with Jaws 2018, using the context menu to use the Recognize With Jaws option and got the message that the OCR component is not installed.

Yet, I have used Jaws to scan a document on my flatbed scanner.

 

I am always connected to the internet, so Jaws 2018 was installed while I had internet connectivity.

 

Is there some other mysterious install file I am supposed to find?

Hi, Dacia. You can do a repair of your newest JAWS, however, you did say that you tried to uninstall it. It gave you an error when you tried to uninstall it. Therefore, I don’t know if the uninstall actually went through. If it did, you will first need to reinstall the newest JAWS. If you still get the error you mentioned which you got when installing JAWS, then you must do a repair.

 

to do the repair:

1. Run the JAWS Installer again. It will detect that JAWS has already been installed. It will come up with a “Repair” button.

2. Press ENTER or SPACE on that button, and the JAWS repair should begin.

I had my husband help me log in then asked him to click on jaws 2018

so w could launch it and I could change the settings to make it start

can't be found in link library or something like that. I tried to

Any suggestions on what to do? I'm using jaws 18 until I can fix it.

If Val is referring to the google Mesh routers then at least their high-end units are among the most expensive in the industry, definitely not a cheap product which is subsidised by Google because it helps them to collect more information about you.

jaws 2018 and windows 10 video driver

Hi All,

 

All of the sudden I’ve been getting error message saying that jaws can’t find the video driver.

 

I tried the jaws repair option like it told me in the message, “jaws_executible.exe /type repair” and it went through the process with no problems.

 

I am still getting this issue.

 

Running on a surface pro, newist version surface pro, with windows 10, build 17093 and latest version jaws as of today.

 

What can I do to get this message gone, and my jaws fixed?

 

Best,

Re: Recognize with Jaws

Hi Sieghard,
Yes, I figured that out after uninstalling all that and reinstalling and that item was no longer there.
Obviously, something got corrupted along the way with the various updates since the convenient OCR feature had worked at one point.
Now, all is well.

OK, in spite of my bad attitude about Jaws and some of the idiocy one has to go through, after completely uninstalling Jaws 2018 and all its related items, like talking install, FS reader, and on and on and on; reinstalling it, the recognize with Jaws works.

 

I hope those who are having similar issues do not have to go to the same lengths as I did.

 

Now, to see how many things I have to reset as I did not export my settings beforehand, figuring I wanted to start as fresh as possible.

I did leave the activation folder alone, so I didn’t have to reactivate.

Re: JAWS2018, & Recognize With Jaws

 

Here a few clarifications:

 

1. Opening a PDF file and using the layered keystroke Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by O and D is the same as right clicking on the file in Windows Explorer and selecting “Recognize with Jaws”. Both use the Jaws convenient OCR feature to perform OCR on the image file and the result is displayed in the virtual viewer.

 

2. In Jaws 2018 using the Windows Explorer method and the “Recognize with Jaws” menu option is not limited to PDF files, it works on any image file, PDF, JPG, TIF, BMG etc.

 

3. If you have Jaws 2018 and the “Recognize with Jaws” option Is not present in the application/right click menu when you are on an image file then something definitely went wrong during the installation. I have Jaws 2018 installed on 2 Windows 10 laptops (one old and one quite new) as well as on several Windows 7 desktops at work and on all machines the “Recognize with Jaws” item is in the context menu. I think Convenient OCR is one of the best features of Jaws and I use it often multiple times each day when I get invoices or other documents which are just images and not accessible PDF’s.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Re: JAWS 2018 and Windows 10

 

I think the main question is what you do with the computer. How many applications or web pages will you have open at the same time? 8 Gb should be plenty if you usually don't open more than 4 or 5 applications at the same time and a few web pages. You can always upgrade later if you find it is an issue. Also, I assume you will run Windows 10 64 Bit, if you plan to run 32 Bit anything over 3 Gb can't be used.

Exactly the same on my Asus Zenbook.
