Hi, Rick. Narrator is part of Windows. Do you have Windows 7 or Windows 10?

Sometimes Narrator sees buttons that JAWS doesn't. Also NVDA
sometimes does. Worth a try.

Hi,

 

Do not uninstall shared components. They are insignificant and won’t harm anything if you leave them. You won’t gain anything at all by removing them.

Hello all,

 

Further to my issue, finally I realized that what is causing the volume change on my PC is something called Dolby Audio, which all of the sudden and all the time gets turned off. Any idea how to resolve this issue?

Hi, Alan. If you press ENTER on the Speakers icon in System Tray, there should be no need to press the Applications key. Arrowing down should reveal the Open Volume Mixer option.

Hi Bill,

 

Yes, I am running Windows 10, but when I pressed enter on Speakers, I did not see volume mixer. It said something like “speakers real teque high definition audio”, and volume left-right slider, one of one. When tabbing, the only option was “mute toggle check box not checked”.

 

I hope you will be able to explain this issue.

Hi, Jezim. If you're running Windows 10, to adjust JAWS volume,

 

1. Look for the Speakers icon in System Tray, and press ENTER.

2. Arrow down to Volume Mixer, and press ENTER.

3. TAB to the Volume for JAWS for Windows FSSynth32 COM object slider, and adjust as desired.

4. TAB to the Volume for Application file for JAWS slider, and also adjust as desired.

5. This should set JAWS to its highest setting for the level for which you have the speakers set.

Hi list,

 

For some reason, suddenly JAWS volume on my PC was lowered; I went to system tray and increased the speaker from 16 to 26 and now I can hear it better, but after restarting PC, I found JAWS volume on log on screen to high as set on 26, but after signing in, the unchanged set volume was still lower.

 

I tried experiencing this after upgrading JAWS, but I believe it is a coincidence.

 

Perhaps I was not able to explain the issue properly, so please feel free to ask me for clarifications.

 

Thank you in advance,

Gezim

Well JAWS is not the best way to use Netflix on the PC. You need to use Narrator assuming you have WIN 10. You neeed to enable scan mode by pressing incert plus space to navagate the app. To rewind, fastforward, and pause you use left and right arrows and spacebar to pause. HTH.

I suppose you could try uninstalling and reinstalling it, removing all of its data files in the process. If you would lose data by doing this, then it's probably an issue for Amazon support. I suspect its configuration or data files have been corrupted, and you may well just have to reinstall.

I think it has to do with how the book was formatted. I had a book that worked perfectly with speech and braille. I could use the familiar Jaws commands to navigate the book. I also have a book for a class we are taking that cannot be navigated with speech or braille as you describe. I can use the built-in speech, but it's much more accessible to use the iPhone version for this particular book.

When I went out to the HP site to see if the full driver was available I also noticed that particular printer has a firmware update also available. You may want to consider upgrading the firmware on the printer to make sure that it is running at its optimal performance.

I removed HP Smart application and the scanner / printer from the Printers and Scanners applet. I then went to support.hp.com and instead of using the recommended HP Smart that I used initially I chose 'HP Easy Start Printer Setup Software' under the Software - Utility heading.

This runs for a while and you are presented with options to install HP Smart (Recommended) or Full Driver setup. I chose the latter and now the scanner works with OpenBook as well as with JAWS OCR

As far as Kindle for PC, I launched it, it did an update, and all is working as it should with Jaws 2020.
The library is there, selecting a book is good, and reading the text works fine, therefore, maybe check for updates?
