Hi, Richard.

 

To enable Fast Startup, do the following:

 

1. Access Windows 10 Power Options. This can easily be achieved using several methods:

a. Right click in the lower left corner of the screen (or simultaneously press the Windows + X keys). This will bring up an 'Admin' menu. Simply select Power Options from that menu.

 

b. From within the Desktop; navigate to Control Panel>Power Options. Or

c. From within the Start Screen; type "power", click on Settings, and select Power Options from the list of results:

 

2. In the 'Power Options' window; click on Choose what the power buttons do (from the left hand panel):

 

3. In the new window; click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.

 

4. Check Fast Startup.

Hi!

 

I am using JAWS 2019 and Windows 10.  Previously, with FS in “Tandem,” I got to the checkbox for “Fast Start” and unchecked that option.  Now, I want to get back to it and check it (i.e., turn it on).  But, I cannot figure out how to get back to it.  So, how do you get to the “Fast Start” option?

 

Thanks,

download the 2020 offline installer, temporarily disconnect from the
Internet and disable the antivirus scanning, and run the repair. if the
problem still persists, call FS.

I recently had a problem with 2018, and performed a repair as mentioned,
and the problem is gone.

remember to reenable the AV before reconnecting to the Net.

I haven’t encountered this issue at all. I’m running JAWS 2020 with the latest Outlook for Office 365 under Windows 10. It might be worth checking whether other people with exactly the same software versions as yours are experiencing the problem. Also, if you think you might be able to upgrade out of it, I would suggest trying to upgrade whatever relevant software you can.

However, the lag for Jaws responding and my ability to type in the body of a reply message is even worse, probably around 7-8 seconds this time. I do appreciate the reminder about the pane, I wish the settings would just stay but evidently MS doesn’t think that is a priority. Bummer.

Hi group,

 

As I await a response from Vispero support, I’m wondering if anyone is experiencing the following:

 

I have noticed that the lag while using Outlook 365 with Jaws 2020 is even worse than with Jaws 2019. Arrowing through a message list, Jaws simply stops speaking. I can read the title of the window but that’s it. Then after 3-4 seconds I am able to proceed normally through the list. And it takes about 5 seconds before I can type a reply to a message.

A few months ago I asked about this lag while in a Outlook webinar with the Microsoft accessibility group. They acknowledged the problem but that was about all they said. I can hardly wait to see what Vispero’s take is.

 

Helpful feedback welcome.

Hi David, I hear what you’re saying. I’m gonna have to call tech support and let them hear the lag. Here is the main part of their written response to my inquiry regarding this issue, it doesn’t directly address your issue but might prove insightful. Then again it might not. <smile> Best, Norma

 

In order to remedy some of your lagging problems, it would be best to make sure that the Outlook Reading Pane is turned off. When the Reading Pane is on, it causes a small window to the right bottom of the Inbox to show part of the message being highlighted. This can cause Outlook to noticeably lag when moving between the messages.

If you continue to have problems, it would be best if you would contact our Technical Support Department by telephone at (727) 803-8000 during normal business hours, Monday through Friday at 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM EST.

I do notice a delay from the time I press enter to open a message until the time when JAWS begins reading the message. I first thought that this was an Outlook issue but I don't notice this delay as much when performing the same task using NVDA. With the preview pane disabled navigating through messages in the message list is responsive but opening a message is not.

I’m late to this thread, but this happens sometimes on my work machine running Windows 10 Pro.

However, here at home on Windows Home 64 bit, it has never happened.

Jaws startup is set the same, Start Jaws at the logon screen, after logon for all users, and the combo box says always for this user.

This is now with Jaws 2020 but it worked the same for me on Jaws 2019.

 

I chalk these kinds of inconsistencies up to Gremlins.

Hi!

 

I am using JAWS 2019 under Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, all updated.  After signing-in, JAWS does not start.  My laptop has two user accounts: Admin and Visitor.  Both are password protected.  I have set JAWS to always start at the logon screen (a.k.a., sign-in screen), and it does.  But, after sign-in JAWS does not start.  This is despite having both the Admin and Visitor accounts set to “always” start after login.

 

I have fiddled with this a lot but I cannot get it to work.  “Fast startup” is off.  I have tried many different settings under the JAWS Options > Basics > Automatically Start JAWS Settings screen, but nothing works.

 

Does anyone else have this problem?  Has anyone solved this?

 

Thanks,

Richard

It made the start up issue for Jaws even worse and then Jaws would respond sluggishly for quite a bit. Turning off fast start up can affect many programs.

Yes, I got the same answer turn off fast start up. That made no difference and in fact made things worse. I turned it back on

Hi Joe!

 

Well, I have turned off “fast startup” but that has not fixed it.  This was suggested by FS.

 

Thanks,

Hi Richard,

I have this problem as well running Jaws 2020 and Windows 10 Pro the in the latest version of the operating system.  I had been using only Jaws at start but when I use Zoom Text  as well Jaws started  after signing in.  This makes me think there is a problem at start up and the additional time required to start Zoom Text or Fusion allows for Jaws to start up properly.

Hallo 
using jaws 2020 and word & excel 2019 on windows 10 pc and have noticed that in the menus when there are unavailable items (greyed out) jaws stills reads them and doesnt indicate that they are unavailable. Also as you move over these unavailable menu items the focus reamins on the last available menu item.. i believe this also occurs in Outlook. Is this a known bug? If not how do i report this to FReedom Scientific

I'd like to find a way to do this too.
I need to arrange some WIFI priorities for my router using the web interface, and it requires drag and drop.
I've tried locking the cursor and that did nothing.

I've never found a good use for that mouse lock and unlock hotkey in Jaws that actually does something useful. I think the real problem with trying to shoehorn this to work on the web is that the virtual cursor and mouse pointer don't follow each other, and except for Internet Explorer, the Jaws cursor won't let you access everything you need to make a good drop at the correct spot.
