I don't do multiple tabs, but my machine is usually up for days at a time.  I've never had this problem . I'd probably try plugging in a pair of usb headphones when this happens.  If the problem goes away, it likely has something to do with the sound card driver, which may need updated, or rolled back.

Hi Everybody,

 

Has anyone else noticed that JAWS becomes incredibly sluggish and crackling audio can be heard after about 2 or 2.5 hours of intensive use?

 

Try the following:

  1. Make sure the June JAWS update is running.
  2. Start Chrome or Edge.
  3. Open and use 10 or more tabs, switching between them and working intensively for about 2 hours. Observe that JAWS becomes less and less responsive over time and it is eventually necessary to restart JAWS.

 

Does anyone else out here experience this situation?

 

Thanks,

 

Darrell

I never have that much open at once.

Without knowing the computer specs, this would be a hard thing to compare.

 

This could be as much system resources running low as anything.

 

Having said that, Jaws with the June update has issues with Outlook at the very least.  I have had more times than I can count where just opening an email renders Jaws speechless.

 

Now, of course, this could be, and probably is, because of the last Microsoft 365 update; but it can be rather frustrating.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5790 laptop, with the i7 chip and 16 GB of RAM and often only have Outlook open when this happens.

I run into this crackling issue from time to time, but very infrequently. I would say I use Jaws pretty intensely, I don't always have 10 browser tabs open, but I do work often for several hours with very few breaks with at least 3 or 4 tabs open as well as Outlook, Excel a couple of Notepad files and Adobe sometimes with 2 or 3 PDF files open. At times I even use Edge as well as Chrome at the same time so instead of opening more tabs in Edge I may use Chrome and as I said, I come across this very rarely and I have never noticed anything which would allow me to reproduce it..

Just for a convenient, compact record, all three of the following commands seem to act as "throw focus to the address bar and select the web address for copying," across all web browsers:
  1. F6
  2. ALT+D
  3. CTRL+L

I recommend Alt + D as well, F6 and Alt + L also do this, but depending on the browser you may have to press F6 twice to get there as is the case in Edge.

I always used F6 just as I always used Control + Enter to send a message in Outlook, but once I started using Edge as my default browser I decided to get used to using Alt + D because I didn't feel like pressing F6 twice and I retrained myself the same way in Outlook to use Alt + S to send a message because quite some time ago I found that Control + Enter would not work consistently any more.

F6 also brings you to the address bar where the URL is already highlighted. This is universal for all web browsers.

Along with why one would want to do that, is Mattias asking if you can install voices in another drive as well?  That part of the question wasn’t clear; but the obvious answer is the voices go where FS needs them to go; which will be drive C along with the main program.

Jaws is complicated enough without adding another layer.

Hello there:

 

No version of JAWS for DOS nor, any version of JAWS for Windows has there ever been included an option as to where you can install JAWS. The company, under whatever it has been called, has always determined the directory/folder where JAWS is to b installed/located.

Hi, Guys.
How do I copy the address of a webpage to paste somewhere else? I know that Ins+a reads the address, but can't dust my mind's corners out to work out how to copy said address.

Thanks,

If you are wanting to copy a web address you can press ALT + D which will place you in the address bar.

If you are trying to copy a link off a web page, when you are on the link you can press ALT Shift + F10 to bring up the context Menu and arrow until you come to the menu item Copy Link.

no, insert+a makes JAWS read it. insert+ a twice puts the address into a virtual window, where you can review it slowly letter by letter or select and copy it to the clipboard. then press escape to close the window.

I know that Ctrl+c copies the text to the clipboard, but when the
Ins+a is performed and JFW reads the text, is it highlighted so it can
be copied, or is there another thing to do between Ins+a and Ctrl+c?

I just use the universal shortcut (in Firefox and every Chromium-based browser), CTRL+L, that throws focus to the address bar and selects its contents.  This is even true if you already happen to have focus there, but the content is not selected.  Followed by the good, old fashioned, CTRL+C to copy and you know you have it on your clipboard.
