Yes. There is a delay. That is why the only way I can
figure, and I'm a little minus mediocre on the tech scale,
but if when you are in one of them, Press Windows-Tab, which
will put the open one on the Taskbar. Then go into the other
one. Then you can see-saw back and forth with Alt-Tab.

Carolyn

You can not simply press ctrl-v. Also, you can’t hit the context key and get a menu and select paste.

When using WindowEyes, I could route the mouse pointer to the upper left or upper right corner of the window, press the key for a right click which would bring up the context menu and then you select edit and paste.

I can not figure out how to do this with JAWS.

It isn't that I cannot use JAWS, it is that from the factor a couple of
computers I got had settings that were apparently incompatible with JAWS. In
one case it was a visual setting and in another case it was a setting
related to the sound settings--the computer was set up for something called
sound blaster and those settings didn't work with JAWS. Once a sighted
person spent some time on the phone with me and tech support, we were able
to figure it out and get it all to work, but I'm a few hundred miles from

JAWS is touch-screen-enabled.  However, unlike most of today’s smart phones, it’s my understanding that they’re not required. In other words, just because you have a touch screen doesn’t mean you must use it.  I had to upgrade my phone last year, and everything decent these days is touch-enabled, but I still dislike the things, and hope and pray they never become mandatory in computing.

I’m a long-time JAWS user, though certainly not an expert or programmer. I am totally blind. I need to upgrade both JAWS (currently running version 16 on Windows 8 computers) and get a new computer. When I last got new computers I avoided the touch screen by customizing both a desktop and a laptop. I am looking for information on how JAWS is doing with these PCs with touch screens, does it work at all? If not, can they be disabled?  And how much sighted assistance I might need out of the box with a new PC to get things up and running?

I’m not sure what kind of computer I’m going to get; I’m shopping now, but it will be a high performance, capacity computer. I’m a professional who probably uses my computer about 12 hours per day, or more. In addition to the usual entertainment purposes, I use MS Office continuously, Online learning management software, and I analyze data using large datasets in SAS, STATA or SPSS (depending upon what features of accessibility and computing I need at the time). In other words, I tend to melt down or crash your average computer with the specks generally recommended for JAWS users within 3 months, so I tend to go way up scale with a better processer and large amounts of memory. However, I’ve found with high performance computers out of the box I have difficulties with JAWS; for example they are set up for surround sound or have some kind of screen setting and JAWS will not work until I can find a sighted person to customize the sound or other settings for me.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a high performance computer that will work well with JAWS? Any suggestions on where I can get quick, useful, information about how JAWS is performing with all-in-one touch screen enabled computers?

Hi,
 
 
Try either of the following:
Copy whatever command string you want to the clipboard.  After typing, CMD, into the run dialogue & pressing enter to open the command prompt try either of the following ways to paste the contents of the clipboard into the command prompt.  The steps below are for XP, Vista, Windows 7 & 8.
 
Step #1:
1. Do a right mouse click simulation keystroke, Numpad star.  Using the applications key / context menu won't work.
2. Arrow down to, Paste, & press enter to paste the contents of the clipboard into the command prompt.
3. Press enter again to start the command.
 
Step 2:
1.  After copying the command string to the clipboard press, Windows key + R, to open the Run Dialogue, type, C M D, & press enter to open the command prompt.
2. Press, Alt + spacebar, to bring up the system menu, arrow down to the edit menu, & press enter.
3. Arrow up / down to the, Paste, option, & press enter, and the contents of the clipboard should be pasted in the  command prompt.
4. Press enter again to start the pasted command.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi,

 

Once you are in the inbox or calander in Outlook, hit Control and 1 for the inbox and Control and 2 for the calander. Works out of the box.

 

 

 

Take care,

How will you know when you get there?

Subject: Outlook Calendar and Jaws

 

AS someone who is having to make the switch from Window-Eyes to Jaws, one of the things I most valued with Window-Eyes was the ability to use a hotkey to pop up the Outlook Calendar in a separate window so I could alt-tab between my inbox and the calendar.

 

Does Jaws have anyway to do this? 

 

 

Thanks,

Richard

Pasting into a command window

Scott Wheat
 

Hello,

 

Using JAWS 18, how can I paste the clipboard contents into a command window.

You can not simply press ctrl-v. Also, you can’t hit the context key and get a menu and select paste.

When using WindowEyes, I could route the mouse pointer to the upper left or upper right corner of the window, press the key for a right click which would bring up the context menu and then you select edit and paste.

I can not figure out how to do this with JAWS.

 

Thanks for any help.

 

Scott

I use a bleutooth keyboard with my iOS devices if I need to type more than a word or two.

But, iOS still won’t handle many of the work related tasks that one uses a computer for.

Personally  I love my IOS devices, but when working, I want a keyboard. And I type faster if it’s an actual physical keyboard and not something I have to tap twice. My philosophy is always have more than one way to get a task done.

JAWS is touch-screen-enabled.  However, unlike most of today’s smart phones, it’s my understanding that they’re not required. In other words, just because you have a touch screen doesn’t mean you must use it.  I had to upgrade my phone last year, and everything decent these days is touch-enabled, but I still dislike the things, and hope and pray they never become mandatory in computing.

I’m a long-time JAWS user, though certainly not an expert or programmer. I am totally blind. I need to upgrade both JAWS (currently running version 16 on Windows 8 computers) and get a new computer. When I last got new computers I avoided the touch screen by customizing both a desktop and a laptop. I am looking for information on how JAWS is doing with these PCs with touch screens, does it work at all? If not, can they be disabled?  And how much sighted assistance I might need out of the box with a new PC to get things up and running?

I’m not sure what kind of computer I’m going to get; I’m shopping now, but it will be a high performance, capacity computer. I’m a professional who probably uses my computer about 12 hours per day, or more. In addition to the usual entertainment purposes, I use MS Office continuously, Online learning management software, and I analyze data using large datasets in SAS, STATA or SPSS (depending upon what features of accessibility and computing I need at the time). In other words, I tend to melt down or crash your average computer with the specks generally recommended for JAWS users within 3 months, so I tend to go way up scale with a better processer and large amounts of memory. However, I’ve found with high performance computers out of the box I have difficulties with JAWS; for example they are set up for surround sound or have some kind of screen setting and JAWS will not work until I can find a sighted person to customize the sound or other settings for me.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a high performance computer that will work well with JAWS? Any suggestions on where I can get quick, useful, information about how JAWS is performing with all-in-one touch screen enabled computers?
