She is attempting to connect to one of her computers, maybe work/maybe not, however, this is not a computer within her LAN. She is needing step by step instructions to connect the two. Don’t as why, if you know, give her the steps. This has gone on too long. If you do not know how to connect, using a 3rd-party app as team viewer, I believe it is called, or another. Worry not about what she is doing or attempting to do. Worry not why she is attempting to do this. If you can, giver step one, step two and on and on in clear detail. Otherwise, lets end this thread please.

Jessica,

What is it, precisely, that you're trying to accomplish here?  And using what program or instructions?

Any of a million things can ask for the things  you're asking about and it would make it much easier to help if one has the whole picture.

moderated Word 365: Unable to see open doc

Norma A. Boge
 

Hi group,

 

I’m using Jaws 2020 with Word 365. Earlier today I had  Microsoft tech support change some settings that I couldn’t find regarding line and paragraph spacing. Since then I can’t see a document when I open it. I  suspect there is a window covering my doc because when I try to open my document, whether from the Documents folder or from within Word, I hear

 

“name of document, try the new Office mobile app, print view”

 

I can’t figure out how to get to my document, I can’t even read any of it, Jaws just says blank, like there’s just one line in the document and it’s blank. Word is maximized.  .

I hope somebody can help me with this…I’m closing in fast on my 19th nervous breakdown,

 

Thanks,

Norma

Personally as   a feature request I would prefer that Jaws has the same

behaviour as NVDA. That is, with NVDA running pressing control alt and N
will

close and restart NVDA in one operation without any further
intervention. Jaws

should do the same thing  with control alt J.

This NVDA feature is very useful if for any reason NVDA has stalled or
speech

has been lost. It clears up these problems quickly and nicely as NVDA
instantly

restarts itself with this forced restart.

In contrast if Jaws stalls you have to first of all try and shut it down
and

then try to re-load it. The exception to this is if Jaws itself
recognises that

it has crashed in which case it will sometimes restart itself  without any

intervention from the user. The drawback  it that it normally takes quite a

time to come to this conclusion.

Shutting down Jaws within one session in these circumstances is also not
always

straightforward. Occasionally I have ended up with multiple Jaws icons
on my

system tray as previous version have clearly failed to completely
unload, even

though only one instance of Jaws is talking.

A computer restart is normally required to remove these multiple ghost

instances of Jaws.

I would much prefer NVDA’s  one shortcut approach  which in my
experience never

results in multiple versions of NVDA trying to run in the background.

Hi,

The two ways I restart JAWS are as follows:

One, press the Windows key and the letter r to bring up the run box. Type

jaws2020 and press enter. JAWS should come up talking.

Two, press the windows key and the letter m to bring up the desktop.
Press j

for JAWS and press enter. The only thing to remember with the desktop
method is

if you have other things that start with j on your desktop, you might
land on

one of those.

I hope this helps.

The computer is running win10 pro, and jaws2020. 

You have to have a password on the computer you want to connect to. 

You also need internet access. 

 

Once that's done, open the "remote desktop connection" app, and there are several tabs. 

 

Under "advanced, I think it was where it asked for the server name. 

After that, it constantly asked for my password, and would not take it. 

 

Can anyone help?

Well friends, I’m having an interesting week – moved from a “dumb” phone to my first IPhone and also updated from JAWS 17 to JAWS 2020.  My new JAWS tells me I have “misspelling” on various words – probably American rather than my Canadian spelling.  I’ve gone to the settings centre but can’t find where to silence such prompts and sound effects.  Any help gratefully received!

No, this combination quits JAWS and dumps from memory but a manual re start from shortcut key or other options is required.

Hi, David. Try the following keystroke to unload and reload JAWS:

 

JAWS key plus WinKey plus F4.

Personally as   a feature request I would prefer that Jaws has the same

behaviour as NVDA. That is, with NVDA running pressing control alt and N will

close and restart NVDA in one operation without any further intervention. Jaws

should do the same thing  with control alt J.

 

 

 

This NVDA feature is very useful if for any reason NVDA has stalled or speech

has been lost. It clears up these problems quickly and nicely as NVDA instantly

restarts itself with this forced restart.

 

 

 

In contrast if Jaws stalls you have to first of all try and shut it down and

then try to re-load it. The exception to this is if Jaws itself recognises that

it has crashed in which case it will sometimes restart itself  without any

intervention from the user. The drawback  it that it normally takes quite a

time to come to this conclusion.

 

Shutting down Jaws within one session in these circumstances is also not always

straightforward. Occasionally I have ended up with multiple Jaws icons on my

system tray as previous version have clearly failed to completely unload, even

though only one instance of Jaws is talking.

 

 

 

A computer restart is normally required to remove these multiple ghost

instances of Jaws.

 

 

 

I would much prefer NVDA’s  one shortcut approach  which in my experience never

results in multiple versions of NVDA trying to run in the background.

Hi,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The two ways I restart JAWS are as follows:

 

 

 

One, press the Windows key and the letter r to bring up the run box. Type

jaws2020 and press enter. JAWS should come up talking.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two, press the windows key and the letter m to bring up the desktop. Press j

for JAWS and press enter. The only thing to remember with the desktop method is

if you have other things that start with j on your desktop, you might land on

one of those.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope this helps.

Hi,

I have the remote desktop app on my iphone and ipad. 

The computer is running win10 pro, and jaws2020. 

You have to have a password on the computer you want to connect to. 

You also need internet access. 

Once that's done, open the "remote desktop connection" app, and there are several tabs. 

Under "advanced, I think it was where it asked for the server name. 

After that, it constantly asked for my password, and would not take it. 

Can anyone help?

Can we get more information on why remote access to your computer is needed. With this information we may be able to provide alternative solutions.

Hi, 

 

The two ways I restart JAWS are as follows:

One, press the Windows key and the letter r to bring up the run box. Type jaws2020 and press enter. JAWS should come up talking. 

 

Two, press the windows key and the letter m to bring up the desktop. Press j for JAWS and press enter. The only thing to remember with the desktop method is if you have other things that start with j on your desktop, you might land on one of those.

Hi, I was using qread and decided to unload jaws (jaws key f4.  When I wanted to reload jaws, I used control alt and j and it didn’t work.  Is there a new way of reloading Jaws now?  I am using the latest jaws 20.  What I had to do was shut the computer and restart and Jaws loaded at startup.  Thank you for your help.  Also, I am most likely getting a used Romeo Printer at Humanware.  Thanks to everyone that helped me sort all this…you are all great!!  Andy and Shubert

Are you saying jaws wont work with remote desktop software without a remote license?

And once you get this to work, unless you have jars with the remote access license on your tablet, all you will have as an image of your computer with no sound.

Can we get more information on why remote access to your computer is needed. With this information we may be able to provide alternative solutions.

Thanks,abraham

Hi,
I have a computer, in outside my home, that I'd like to access, when I'm not physically near it. 
I have the remote desktop app on my iphone and ipad. 
The computer is running win10 pro, and jaws2020. 
You have to have a password on the computer you want to connect to. 
You also need internet access. 

Once that's done, open the "remote desktop connection" app, and there are several tabs. 

Under "advanced, I think it was where it asked for the server name. 
After that, it constantly asked for my password, and would not take it. 

Can anyone help? 
I'm so close to finally getting this. 

Thanks,
Jessica

Jessica,

What is it, precisely, that you're trying to accomplish here?  And using what program or instructions?

Any of a million things can ask for the things  you're asking about and it would make it much easier to help if one has the whole picture.
