Re: Since updating to JAWS 18, my 2nd computer always shows the SMA count = is 0

Did you run the SMA updating procedure on the laptop? From memory (and it’s quite a while since I’ve done this – once only), I had to invoke the Update Authorization menu option in JAWS.

No, Jaws 18 was the last of the previous SMA.

 

In November I purchased a new SMA. My desktop has shown 2 upgrades remaining since I purchased the SMA. .

My laptop still shows 0 upgrades left. It should show 2 remaining.

Hello, 

 

I always keep my 2 computers up to date with the latest versions of Win 10 and Jaws 18.

 

A year ago, and after installing Jaws 18, on both computers, I purchased the SMA. Only my primary (desktop) shows that the SMA upgrades remaining is 2. My secondary (laptop) still shows the remaining upgrade count is 0.

 

I have always updated the primary computer first, whenever a new version of Jaws came out. The laptop was always updated after the desktop.Before Jaws 18, both computers had the same SMA upgrades remaining.

 

If the laptop shows that there is zero SMA upgrades remaining, what will happen when I install the new Jaws 2018 on my laptop?

Re: Only one PDF document can be viewed at a time

except in my case, JAWS 16 does not announce the name of the document.
all it says is "document" when I press the control+tab.

I wonder if J18 does the same?

Mario is correct, Control+Tab which for me also works well with multiple
tabs in IE or Chrome. Here is the short description when you turn Jaws
key describer on:

Control+Tab
Brings the next Document Window into focus and says the window that has
just gained focus.

Rahul, I found that after opening both PDF docs in Reader DC, pressing

assume insert+t will reflect which doc you've switched to.

Hi Everyone,

Recently, I have been facing a strange problem. I am unable to read
multiple PDF documents at one time which is often what I am required to
do for work. Basically, imagine that I have opened document A in Adobe
Reader and then open document b. document a is just not accessible when
I press alt-tab to go from one document to the other.
In order to view document a, I have to close document b.
Does anyone have any ideas as to why this could be happening and what I
may be able to do to fix this?

I think control tab instead of alt tab is for child windows, which the second PDF would be.

A clean instllation might help - you could upgrade while doing so and just re-install everything in Windows 10. My Windows 10 experience is better than my Windows 7 experience.

Hi,
For the most part, Word 2013 will work on Windows 10.
For now, I recommend staying with Windows 7 if it meets your needs. But in the long-term, you should think about moving on, especially from 2019 onwards.

Since I have had the pc for so long, it has definitely been verified as a 64-bit version. Thank you, anyway. I am not sure, but it might be possible I am running a 32-bit version of IE, but I don't see where that should make any difference. Whenever other updates have come along and automatic checking of my pc was done, it always showed up as a 64-bit version. This was a first for me.

Hi Carol,

Your PC hardware may support 64 bit operating systems, but that doesn't mean you can't have a 32 bit version of Windows 7 installed.
The easiest way to check is as follows:
1. Open the Run command with Windows Key+R and type c:\ and then press enter. This will take you to the C (root) Drive.
2. Type "P" and check if you have one or two folders called Program Files":
If you have a second folder which is called "Program Files (x86)" you have Windows 7 64 Bit installed.
If you only have one folder called "Program Files" without anything else yu have Windows 7 32 Bit.
You can close this window with Alt+F4 after you check.

Hi Laura! I have both Windows 10, and Windows 7 machines where I work. I
like using Windows 10 more and more, because newer versions of JAWS work
better using applications that I am using perform my job duties. As
stated before, it really depends on the type of work you're involved in
doing.

Subject: General state of Jaws 18 compatibility with Windows 10?

Hi all,

My work place is in the process of upgrading from windows 7 to Windows 10.
I recall many of my Jaws-user friends had difficulties with various
acccessibility losses when Windows 10 came out. I can ask my work to keep
my machine running windows 7. What have peoples'
experiences been with Windows 10? Will upgrading likely cuse problems for
me, or have most of the wrinkles been ironed out by this point?

Laura

Heya folks,



Just installed latest Jaws 18 on my windows 7 64bit PC from using Jaws 17 for ages now, there’s a couple of things that annoy me even though I migrated my settings from J17, one is jaws announces when I switch tabs in IE11 “new tab page”, is there a way to stop this?



Any particular settings I need to change to make it like J17?



Cheers,



Jim


Re: Chrome download?

 

Hi Carol,

Your PC hardware may support 64 bit operating systems, but that doesn't mean you can't have a 32 bit version of Windows 7 installed.
The easiest way to check is as follows:
1. Open the Run command with Windows Key+R and type c:\ and then press enter. This will take you to the C (root) Drive.
2. Type "P" and check if you have one or two folders called Program Files":
If you have a second folder which is called "Program Files (x86)" you have Windows 7 64 Bit installed.
If you only have one folder called "Program Files" without anything else yu have Windows 7 32 Bit.
You can close this window with Alt+F4 after you check.

Best regards,
Sieghard

Hi Sieghard,

Well, I did try that, but all that happened was that I got the message that said I couldn't use it (I am presuming it thought my computer was older than it actually is, and that it is a 32-bit system.) I really am running Windows 7 and have been for over 7 years. My pc is a 64-bit, but the Chrome page seems to think it is a 32-bit system. I think I might give Ninite a look tomorrow. Thanks.

Carol

Hi Carol,

I just usually Google "Download Chrome" and use the first search result.
It may no longer support XP, but I'm pretty sure it's fine on 32 bit systems.
Once you click download there is an "Accept" button you need to click and the only way I ever managed to do it is with the Jaws cursor.

Hi,

I have been trying to find a download for Chrome that will work on Win7 and run on a 64-bit PC. Every time I click on the download button, I get a message which says Chrome will no longer support xp and Vista and something about 32 bit. I specifically searched for windows 7 and 64-bit desktop. Where does one go to get a reliable download? My first try was with the Google page that nags every time I go to Google to ask a question. So, this time, I clicked on the yes button to install instead of the no I am not interested button. Thanks for any ideas.

Carol

My recommendation is to simply switch to Google Chrome, Webvisum was a good feature in favour fo Firefox when it still worked, but it doesn't and I think overall Chrome offers a faster and better experience. There are a few exceptions and I just use IE for those.

Subject: Firefox! What the heck is wrong with it?

Hi All,

Today firefox updated on my windows 7 laptop and now it hoses up the laptop like every five minutes. Well, as long as I have firefox open anyway. What the heck is going on? And is there a fix aside from abandoning ship and going back to internet explorer?

Thanks for any help.

Kimber
