Portability, fitting both laptop and keyboard in computer bag. Takes up less space. Gives off less heat. Quieter running. Has own speakers. That's just off the top of my head without much thought.

Hi, Dennis, I am also a Jaws16 laptop home user with Window7 ,but
I use the desktop keyboard because the laptop keyboard is small,my
desk is tall, and my fingers are too big for the laptop keyboard ,
so I recommend you switch from one to the other and go with the one
that is best for you . Roy Dubriel

Re: Update On Windows 7 Home Computer Situation

Michael Mote
 

Dr. Tom, I would say the free version of Avast should serve your needs well
at home. The paid version may offer more features, but if all you want is
virus protection, the free version should be fine. I'm glad to hear that
your Windows machine is free of malware now. Malware Bytes is a good
program and should serve your needs well moving forward.

Subject: Update On Windows 7 Home Computer Situation

Hello, everyone.



As some of you may recall, I had been having multiple problems with my main
Windows 7 home computer. As a result of the many very helpful suggestions
that I have received from a number of list members, both on and off list, I
think I have finally gotten the computer back up and running.



First, with the help of an I T technician from my University, Malwarebytes
has been installed and run several times. As a result, I believe I have now
finally gotten rid of those audio clips that were randomly appearing from
time to time.



Regarding my Outlook 2010 issue, where Outlook was often not launching
correctly, and Jaws was extremely sluggish, I conpacted the .pst Outlook
data file. As some had warned, this took very long, but that file is now
much more manageable in size. Specifically, it has been reduced from its
original 10 gig size to approximately 730 megabytes. In addition, based on
a suspicion that my A V G anti-virus software was conflicting with Outlook,
I uninstalled that program, and have gone to the free version of Avast, at
least for now. This seems to work well, and does not appear to be creating
any issues of concern. In fact, Outlook, Avast, and Jaws seem to play very
nicely together.



I still have a few things to decide:



1. Do I continue with the free version of Avast, or purchase the more
robust program?



2. Do I try to delete Outlook add-ins, and the journal, or just leave well
enough alone for now?; and



3. How often do I want to schedule the compacting of that Outlook PST file
that gave me all the trouble?



Anyway, I'm making progress now, and appreciate all of the help that I have
received regarding the difficulties I was having.



Sincerely,

Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan

Re: new laptop user with jaws 16

Soronel Haetir
 

Actually I was not aware of that one. <Chagrin>.

Still not as nice as a real context menu key. Probably not even as
nice as my remapped print screen since it requires hitting two keys.
Prior to this laptop I had not even encountered a laptop with an
actual print screen key, it has always been an Fn key combo before
(the print screen key takes the place of a second ins key next to the
del in the row that makes up the normal six-pack).

What is even more frustrating is that this laptop is slightly wider
than my prior one so the space is there, but the keyboard is smashed
into a narrower area. It simply has pretty large margins to the left
and right of the keyboard.

Re: navigating popup windows in Internet Explorer

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Virtualizing the window! Interesting suggestion, thanks.

When I bring up the keyboard shortcuts popup, then try to virtualize the
window, JAWS says "Virtualizing is unavailable when forms mode is active".
But I have no idea why it would think forms mode is on. If I turn forms mode
off and try again, it says "the current location is already in a virtual
view". And I still have the same results and can't read the popup text a
line at a time, as it still reads the main window text instead, as if the
popup isn't there.

I also tried OCR ing the window. Unfortunately, it picks up lots of text
outside the popup, so this is not a practical way to read the popup. Maybe
there's a way to restrict the OCR region to the popup window, but if there
is, I don't know it.

The fact that JAWS seems to ignore these popups is actually beneficial in
some cases, for example when a popup is asking me to take a survey or
something stupid like that. But when I actually want to read and interact
with the popup content, it's a real PITA.

You are correct that escape gets me out of the popup. Thanks for that tip.

Soapbox on: Why do web page designers put their accessibility help in an
inherently non-accessible popup window?? GMail also does this! Grrr...
Soapbox off.

Paul,

See if the JAWS virtual window helps by pressing JAWS key+alt+w. Assuming it does, you'll be able to navigate with the arrow keys and, better still, copy the entire text to paste into another document. You need to press escape to get out of this window.

Subject: navigating popup windows in Internet Explorer

Hi all. I'm having trouble navigating popup windows in IE.

As an example, go to facebook.com, turn off the virtual PC cursor with
INSERT+Z, then hit the question mark key. This opens a popup window
containing a list of keyboard shortcuts for interacting with facebook, and
immediately starts reading them.

Does anyone know how to navigate this popup window? If I stop the reading
with the CONTROL key, then up and down arrow to read a line at a time, all I
hear JAWS say is "BLANK". If I turn the virtual PC cursor back on and jump
to a heading with H, it takes me to a heading on the facebook page, not in
the popup window. With my crap residual vision, I can see that there is a X
close button in the upper right corner of the window, but there is no way to
navigate to it that I can see.

The facebook popup is just one example. I have encountered this type of
popup on multiple web pages, and I've never been able to successfully use my
JAWS reading keys to read it, and have never been able to accessibly
navigate to the close button to turn the window off.

Any pointers or tips? Thanks!!
-Paul

Update On Windows 7 Home Computer Situation

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.



As some of you may recall, I had been having multiple problems with my main
Windows 7 home computer. As a result of the many very helpful suggestions
that I have received from a number of list members, both on and off list, I
think I have finally gotten the computer back up and running.



First, with the help of an I T technician from my University, Malwarebytes
has been installed and run several times. As a result, I believe I have now
finally gotten rid of those audio clips that were randomly appearing from
time to time.



Regarding my Outlook 2010 issue, where Outlook was often not launching
correctly, and Jaws was extremely sluggish, I conpacted the .pst Outlook
data file. As some had warned, this took very long, but that file is now
much more manageable in size. Specifically, it has been reduced from its
original 10 gig size to approximately 730 megabytes. In addition, based on
a suspicion that my A V G anti-virus software was conflicting with Outlook,
I uninstalled that program, and have gone to the free version of Avast, at
least for now. This seems to work well, and does not appear to be creating
any issues of concern. In fact, Outlook, Avast, and Jaws seem to play very
nicely together.



I still have a few things to decide:



1. Do I continue with the free version of Avast, or purchase the more
robust program?



2. Do I try to delete Outlook add-ins, and the journal, or just leave well
enough alone for now?; and



3. How often do I want to schedule the compacting of that Outlook PST file
that gave me all the trouble?



Anyway, I'm making progress now, and appreciate all of the help that I have
received regarding the difficulties I was having.



Sincerely,

Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan

I'm wondering if shift F10 would serve the same purpose as the applications
key. I find that in many cases it does for me. Just throwing it out there.
Maybe it will help you!

The one thing I find annoying with my HP laptop is that it does not have the
context menu key. I have used a utility to remap the print screen key to
perform that function but it is certainly not as convenient as a proper
context menu key. My guess, however, is that a windows 7 laptop is probably
old enough that it would have this key, so long as you are talking about a
full size laptop and not a compact model.

Re: new laptop user with jaws 16

Depending on how you intend to use it, maybe not many changes at all. I say
that because I am not sure if you plan on using a desktop keyboard with it,
or a Bluetooth keyboard. Some models have the number pad on them, so I'm
not sure if your new laptop will or not. If you choose to use the laptop
layout, the JAWS key, or the insert key will be the capslock key. You will
also find a list of laptop keystrokes in the JAWS help menu. Good luck!

Or attaching a USB numpad, which covers the key that are probably missing from the device's keypad. Much easier to carry. As I understand it, the caps lock substitutes for most insert-based commands, but not all.
