Re: The Solution for My Installation of the Anniversary Update to Windows 10, Enterprise

Hello Patricia,

You're quite welcome.

The Microsoft technician was extremely emphatic about running the Setup..exe file as an administrator. He was clear that it was not enough to merely be logged into the computer with an account with administrative privileges.

So, before you begin, make certain to right-mouse click on the Setup.exe file and select the "Run as Administrator" item.

Good Luck and let us know how it goes.

I don't write much but came across your message to the group and am pleased to read your solution as I, too, am running Enterprise. I recently heard from the FS podcast that the update was out, and my dad who is also running 10 Enterprise said he had to go and get it manually as well. I was concerned if there would be any repercussions with JAWS as this is my productivity machine, so am glad to hear it went so successfully for you. Thanks for writing the group. I hope my experience is also a smooth one.

Hello Rajiv,

All versions of Windows 10, like Mac OS, can now mount ISO images without the need to extract any files.

All I did was to copy the ISO image to my desktop and then Click it. Another way to do this would be to first select the ISO image icon, right-mouse click, then choose Mount from the context menu.

When the ISO image is mounted, it opens in Windows Explorer and one can browse the virtual disk as one would if the disk were in a physical DVD drive.

accessible video editing software with JAWS 16

I have a mentee who is interested in using video editing software who
is using JAWS 16. Before I start searching trial software for the

Re: Word crashes when saving file

Bill Spiry
 

Interesting. I wish I'd seen this a few weeks ago. Definitely been an issue for me. Reinstalled office 360 a couple of times, reinstalled Jaws a few times, and eventually did a clean rebuild of the laptop with windows 10 pro, anniversary edition from the bare drive up. Damned thing still kept crashing word 2016 when doing a save as (pissed off!)!
I fussed around with it for a long time and was able to overcome the problem eventually by applying what seems to be an unrelated but effective fix to folders. Specifically, in windows file explorer I selected one of my document folders, brought up a context menu, selected properties, in the general tab tabbed to the "read only" check box which indicated as being "partially checked" and unchecked it, hit Ok and then rebooted. Then when I opened a new document in Word 2016 I was able to do a "save as" without crashing the program. Can't explain it but it worked and I only had to do that with one documenbt folder and it stuck for everything.
The system is still a bit flaky in word and powerpoint, have experienced a couple of crashes and/or docs not opening properly but overall much closer to stable than before the fix. Weird but true.


Any other input on stabilizing things in this OS environment with JAWS would be welcome.

I don't have problems saving files in Word 2010 Pro but it frequently

closing unless I want to save the Normal, which has not had anything changed.

I can open a file, read it, exit Word ok the first time. If I open a

Hi everyone,

I have had this problem for several weeks, so you may have talked
about it a while back and I missed it. If you weeks ago, Microsoft
word started crashing when I try to save the file. I can save changes
to an already existing file, but when I created a new file it would
crash every time as I tried to save it. I went on the Microsoft help
pages, and I found a post that said that word is now crashing when
saving a file while using jaws. So it is a known issue, but there was
no
sense of when it would be fixed.

Has anyone come up with a good work around for this problem? I have
been using WordPad, but that's not a very good workaround.

I am using windows 10, office 365, and the latest version of jaws. I
think this started happening before the latest jaws update came out.
I wish I had any idea when it would be fixed.

Thanks, Bonnie

























Re: How to use an app-specific voice profile with jaws 17?

Maria Kristic
 

Here are the steps from JAWS Help:

 

Selecting a Voice Profile for an Application

To select a voice profile for an application, do the following:

  1. Make sure that JAWS focus is in the application and then press INSERT+CTRL+S to open the Select a Voice Profile dialog box. It contains a combo box labeled Default, which assigns a voice profile that is used globally by JAWS, and the For <application name> combo box, which assigns a voice profile for a specific application.
  2. If JAWS focus is in the Default combo box, press TAB to move to the For combo box.
  3. Press UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW to scroll through the list of voice profiles, and then press ENTER to select a voice profile. The dialog box closes and JAWS now uses the selected profile for the open application.

Note: If you select Use Default, which is the first item in the combo box list, JAWS will use the same voice profile currently selected in the Default combo box for the current application.

 

Regards,

Maria

APH is also coming out with a braille display with some, but very limited, stand alone capability and it will sell for $500.00.  I think it has a 20 cell display.  Things are happening rapidly in the braille note taker and display fields today.

HumanWare points out you can trade in your PAC Mate or other older

Windows 10 Anniversary Update - It's Coming, but at a deliberate pace

 

For those concerned that you don't have it yet, don't be.   The major upgrades like this one are, even in the perfect scenario, rolled out over a period of a number of weeks to a subset of all Windows 10 machines in groups.  I have no idea how Microsoft decides which machines are in a given first group, second group, etc., but it's become quite clear now that this is the general progression.

There have been widely reported issues with the Anniversary Update that, while not affecting everyone, are far too common.  Microsoft recognizes some of these issues as very important to critical and has slowed down the rollout of the Anniversary Update as a result.  There will almost certainly be an announcement from Microsoft when they believe that everyone should have received the Anniversary Update, but depending on how these fixes work out, whether other issues present themselves, and other variables the rollout could  be months long.

The major updates/upgrades are not like the garden variety "Patch Tuesday" updates which go out to all Windows boxes that apply Windows updates in a matter of days.  These always roll out more slowly and can be intentionally delayed, or even reversed, if unanticipated issues are encountered.  Sit tight and eventually your machine will download the Anniversary Update.

windows 10 annivesary update still waiting

Marvin Hunkin <startrekcafe@...>
 

Hi. my windows update 1511 is up to date, still waiting for the windows anniversary update, almost three weeks after relaserelease. In Australia. Must be very slow, or maybe some thing, did try to install via the updater, but lost all audio, had to call Microsoft disability help desk and with sighted help, roll back to windows 7, then rolled back to windows 10 64 bit 1511, and got the idt audio driver. So, waiting for the update, as well in windows update. Or maybe might have to see if I can contact some one high in the head of windows development, at Microsoft. Maybe joseph has got a contact I can contact there. And might have to google see if there’s a patch for windows 10 64 bit 1511, to see if it will see the 1607 update. Almost three weeks. Don’t want to lose my audio again, so not going to use the updater, our internet is slow, hoping to have the set top box cables fixed, and our home phone is not working, brops out, breaking up, crackling, people cannot hear.

So still waiting for the update.

I have not been prompted for the update yet but, upon reviewing a Microsoft
support page, I discovered that, should I wish to force the update, I can:

1.
From the Windows update dialog box, select the Learn More link located at
the end of the, "Looking for more information on the latest update?" text.

2.
Upon activating the link, a Microsoft webpage opens containing a link to the
Anniversary version.

So, my question is: Has anyone used this method to update their computer?
If so, were there any problems with Jaws, during the update process?

Thank you,

Mark

Thanks Robin, I managed to edit the keystroke and it seems to be working again. I also found I could create a hotkey direct to the keystroke editor, so hopefully that will be an extra safeguard.

Hi,

Yes Windows 10 has taken that keystroke for something else it seems.  I did read on twitter that an update is soon to be forth coming with a different key map.  Meanwhile my way around this was to do a clean uninstall and reinstall thus the program came up in main window where I could edit the keystroke to my own liking for the time being.  I’d been told that this can also be done via the conf file but doing so didn’t work for me.

I hope this helps.

Robin

Ever since I updated Windows 10 to the Anniversary update I can’t get the main screen to come up for Chicken Nugget. Alt-Windows-W no longer works. I’ve also tried ctrl-Windows-W and Alt-ctrl-Windows-W. Is anyone else having this issue?
