Re: Windows 10, JAWS 17 and sluggishness

Karen Reynolds <reynolds-karen@...>
 

Hi Joseph,
Does this repair JAWS or Windows 10?

I think my problem is more with Windows and because so much is running in
the background that JAWS does not work well. I could be wrong though

Hi,
One way is going to Programs and Features, selecting Freedom Scientific
JAWS, open context menu and select change (or should say repair).
Cheers,

Hi Joseph,
Sorry it's taken me awhile to get back to this.

I upgraded from Windows 7. No, I've not heard of repair. How is this done?

Hi,
Which OS did you upgrade from, and have you tried JAWS repair to see if it
fixes some issues?
I have forwarded this question to a Windows 10 mailing list in hopes that
someone here and there can help you.
Cheers,
Joseph

Subject: Windows 10, JAWS 17 and sluggishness

Hi,
I'm first off having trouble learning Windows 10, made worse by the recent
upgrade that changed several things I was doing, but my computer and JAWS
often seems very slow in responding. In particular, I'm having trouble
getting JAWS to stay talking or in some cases with IE 11 to be able to use
the JAWS cursor at all.

I know this is a little vague, well, maybe a lot, but I'm not sure what
specific question to ask because I don't really know what's causing these
issues. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get JAWS to work
more consistently and get rid of some of the stuff running in the
background? And what should I get rid of?

I've only recently upgraded to it so any help would be appreciated.

Karen

I am sure that the program I was speaking of is not Tune-Up Utilities.

Bill was it tune-up utilities. It has been a while since I've used that software but I do know it does hat; however, understanding the screen was difficult because I had to use the JAWS cursor.

I have no problem checking the process list. My question is when
the total of items in the process add to a total cpu usage of 0 to 4
percent and the status line says the cpu usage is 40 percent.



Rebooting the system stops the extra cpu usage but it may reappear
in hours or weeks.

It will describe what the file does, but it won't always be
straightforward in telling you that it is an Operating System
function. The description of what the file does should clue you in
to the fact that Windows needs this file running to do its work.

good morning guys
I have been following this thread for a little while
The gentleman said that if I take the program name and put it in
Google it would tell me whether or not the file in question is a
necessary operating system file to be running
Will it describe what the program does and will it be
straightforward and telling us whether it's an operating system bio?
Or
Well it just give us its function
Which would still bag

Hi, Mike. You don't have 56 aps running. What you have is 56
separate processes running. Some of these are Windows
operating system-associated files which is how the operating

Reader. If you are unsure of what a process is, look at the
file by using JAWS Key plus the 5 key on the NumPad twice
quickly. This will cause JAWS to spell the entire filename.
Once you know the spelling of the filename, look up this
filename on Google, and see if it is an essential Windows
Operating System process. If it is, don't turn it off.



Now to your second question. If you press the "End Process"
button, it will only end the process which is currently
highlighted.



One of the things I find when searching through my processes
is that occasionally, I will have this process running even
though I am done with the ap. The process is:

iexplore.exe



This is Internet Explorer's ap. When I find this, I end all
iexplore.exe processes. Just be sure you know the difference
between iexplore.exe and explore.exe. Explore.exe is an
essential Windows process, and is how Windows displays all
your files and folders. Do Not turn off this process, or you
will need to reboot your computer to get it going properly
again.



Good luck with your endeavors at using the Task Manager.

Hi, Mike. Press the following key combination:

This will take you into the Task Manager. Then use

Select the Processes tab, and tab to the list of

I’ve just fired up my laptop, running W7 with
JAWS 16.0.

This happens a lot; once first fired up, it runs
sluggishly slow for the first 10-15 minutes or
so. I’m going nuts right now trying to type this
out!

So how can I see what is running in the
background when this happens? I mean; to see if
I’m catching an update or something like that?
Or to see what other programs I have that are
also running?

Thanks much!......Mike

*Subject:*How to see what I have running in
background?

Hi,

I’ve just fired up my laptop, running W7 with
JAWS 16.0.

This happens a lot; once first fired up, it runs
sluggishly slow for the first 10-15 minutes or
so. I’m going nuts right now trying to type this
out!

So how can I see what is running in the
background when this happens? I mean; to see if
I’m catching an update or something like that?
Or to see what other programs I have that are
also running?

Thanks much!......Mike

Hi, Mike. You don't have 56 aps running. What you have is 56

file by using JAWS Key plus the 5 key on the NumPad twice
quickly. This will cause JAWS to spell the entire filename.
Once you know the spelling of the filename, look up this

Operating System process. If it is, don't turn it off.



Now to your second question. If you press the "End Process"
button, it will only end the process which is currently
highlighted.



One of the things I find when searching through my processes
is that occasionally, I will have this process running even
though I am done with the ap. The process is:

iexplore.exe



This is Internet Explorer's ap. When I find this, I end all
iexplore.exe processes. Just be sure you know the difference
between iexplore.exe and explore.exe. Explore.exe is an
essential Windows process, and is how Windows displays all
your files and folders. Do Not turn off this process, or you
will need to reboot your computer to get it going properly
again.



Good luck with your endeavors at using the Task Manager.

Hi, Mike. Press the following key combination:

This will take you into the Task Manager. Then use
TAB to get to the various tabs in the tab manager.

Select the Processes tab, and tab to the list of
running processes. Once done, press ESCAPE to exit

Re: How to see what I have running in background?

Tony
 

I probably should have given a bit more info.

 

I’m running Windows 7 64-bit Pro on a SSD with a second, small SSd paging drive, 3 2tb spinning drive and 8gb ram which is the max on my Dell desktop with an I3 at 3.3ghz

 

At runtime I start Jaws 16 and MS Security Essentials.  Others, like Adobe, Itunes, printer and scanner management I have set to load only when needed, which is rairly.

 

Cpu usage is less than 2% at this point.

 

I usually load uTorrent which brings the usage up to 10-15 percent.

 

The system may idle at this level for days, approaching 100% when running 7-zip or audio processing programs.  It returns to the 10-15% level when those programs finish.

 

Occasionally, the idle usage goes to 50-60% with uTorrent running and to 30-40% after uTorrent is terminated and with only a browser or two open.

 

Closing all applications in the Task Manager list and the uTorrent process drops the usage to either near zero or to 30-40%.  I have not been able to determine any reason for the difference or a way to predict when the higher level will occur.  

 

Checking the Task Manager Process list shows many of the previously running processes still loaded but at most 1 or 2 processes at 1% usage and a status line entry of 30-40% total usage.

 

I have run MS Security Essentials, which has protected me for years and nothing shows.  I haven’t been able to find a version of MalWare Bytes that I can run successfully.

 

Keyboard delay is barely noticeable at 30-40% usage, noticeable at 60% and terrible at 70+%.  Probably a good pard of that is Jaws related, especially when memory load is high and paging is likely to be occurring.

 

I tend to keep multiple projects running.  I have seen 90+ entries in the process list and 25+ in the applications list.  Most are static displays but many are active with high cpu and i/o demands.  Terminating all of these programs sometimes results in essentially no cpu usage while at other times it still shows 30-40% usage.

 

Tony

A bunch of general notes:

  • 40% CPU usage is nowhere near to "high."  If you're experiencing bad lagging at 40% CPU usage you need to see if something is thrashing your hard disc.  A machine should be flying along at 40% CPU usage if nothing else is preventing it from doing so.
  • The 64-bit Windows environment still uses lots of 32-bit processes.  Many programs that come in 32 and 64 bit will even install 32-bit by default unless instructed otherwise on a 64-bit system.
  • Many programs, whether part of the Windows OS or not (Chrome being one example) run many simultaneous processes.  In the case of Chrome it's one per tab plus a couple more (I can't remember the exact count)
  • If you are having horrible lag at system start this can very often be the result of an orphan entry in the registry or startup folder that's trying to start something that's no longer on your system.  Some programs are notorious for not cleaning up after themselves well when they are uninstalled while others can end up this way if uninstalled incorrectly.  Windows will keep trying and trying and trying to start up processes/programs that are specified as part of boot up even when they are no longer present, and it hangs waiting for a response and, after some ungodly long period of time without response, will try again to start whatever it happens to be.  (At least this has been the case for as long as I've been working with Windows.  This might have changed with Windows 10, but I doubt it.

Re: Add sender in Outlook

david
 

There are 2 ways to access the outlook contacts.
 
The first way is,
Ctrl+shift+b=book,
This will land you on an search edit field, So you could type in a contact's
name to search, Or, you could tab once to get into the list of contacts, Now
use your arrow keys, If you would want to send a message to a particular
contact while you're inside the contacts, Just arrow to the contacts
name/email, Now press ctrl+n=new message, Note, the person's information, is
already placed into the to field, thus, you land on the subject, If you tab,
you're placed into the body of the message.
The second way to access you're contacts,
Ctrl+#3 on the numbers row,
You land inside the contacts,
Tab once to the edit field, type a contacts name,
Shift+tab, the name should be there.
 
Adding contact;
 
Here's a couple ways you can do this.
 
The first way, is,
 
Press ctrl+shift+c
This will place you on a screen where you can add a contact, Use the tab key
to access the criteria, Once you've completed filling in the various fields,
Press escape key, and say yes to save.
The second way is,
 
1, open a message from the person whom you wish to add/reply to,
 
2, now shift+tab until you hear;
From: the person's name and email address; Move your left arrow to highlight
the name/email
 
3, press the applications key,
Up arrow and enter on,
Add to outlook contacts,
 
Note, your now being placed into a screen with all the information, Name,
email address, Etc.
If your satisfied with the name&email,
Just press the escape key, your being ask, if you wish to save this
information, just say yes.

Accessible DJ programs with Jaws?

Shane clark
 

Hello everyone,

So I was wondering, for those of you that DJ out there, what is a good program to use that's accessible with Jaws 17, and Windows 10? I'm looking for something preferably that's not going to be too difficult to set up and get going, considering I'm going to have to learn the program as well. Butt if need be, I'm willing to put in the time it takes to get used to things. Not sure if there's anything out there for free, if so if you want feel free to take this off list and email me directly. If not, looking for something that wouldn't break the bank too bad LOL.

Thanks so much in advance, Shane.

Press alt 1 quickly twice, left arrow once, press the applications key and arrow up or down until you arrive to add to outlook contacts.

 

Review what is there if you’d like, or simply save with alt s.

 

It’s not available in the context menu, unless you are focused on the email address header.

If it is, don't turn it off.

 

Now to your second question. If you press the "End Process" button, it will only end the process which is currently highlighted.

 

One of the things I find when searching through my processes is that occasionally, I will have this process running even though I am done with the ap. The process is:

iexplore.exe

 

This is Internet Explorer's ap. When I find this, I end all iexplore.exe processes. Just be sure you know the difference between iexplore.exe and explore.exe. Explore.exe is an essential Windows process, and is how Windows displays all your files and folders. Do Not turn off this process, or you will need to reboot your computer to get it going properly again.

 

Good luck with your endeavors at using the Task Manager.

Hi Bill, apparently I have 56 items in this list. Does that mean I've got 56 apps running? I also noticed and and process button. If I hit that button, will that stop all those things from running all the time? Is this something I should do? Thanks for all your help.

Hi,

I’ve just fired up my laptop, running W7 with JAWS 16.0.

This happens a lot; once first fired up, it runs sluggishly slow for the first 10-15 minutes or so. I’m going nuts right now trying to type this out!

So how can I see what is running in the background when this happens? I mean; to see if I’m catching an update or something like that? Or to see what other programs I have that are also running?

Thanks much!......Mike

It will describe what the file does, but it won't always be straightforward in telling you that it is an Operating System function. The description of what the file does should clue you in to the fact that Windows needs this file running to do its work.

Hi James,

Yes, you can turn off most of the apps that run in the background. Here is what you do. Press windows+I to bring up the settings app in win10. Next, find the privacy group and press enter. Next, find background apps and press enter. Now, you can tab to hear if an app is check or unchecked. If your screen reader says button, it is not running in the back ground. If you hear button checked, that means that it is running in the background. When you hear button checked, you can just press the space bar to turn that app off from running in the back ground. The only apps I have running in the back ground, are the settings, News, Weather, and the Photos app. You do not need any other app to run in the back ground. So, just tab through them all, and make sure that it just says button instead button checked. If it says button checked, press the space bar to turn that app off from running in the back ground.

I hope that helps. Take care, James.

David Moore

Hi,
I'm first off having trouble learning Windows 10, made worse by the recent
upgrade that changed several things I was doing, but my computer and JAWS
often seems very slow in responding. In particular, I'm having trouble
getting JAWS to stay talking or in some cases with IE 11 to be able to use
the JAWS cursor at all.

I know this is a little vague, well, maybe a lot, but I'm not sure what
specific question to ask because I don't really know what's causing these
issues. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get JAWS to work
more consistently and get rid of some of the stuff running in the
background? And what should I get rid of?

I've only recently upgraded to it so any help would be appreciated.

Karen
