I do have an Acer netbook running XP and Jaws 12 and 15, but it sure isn't
very powerful. But it will run the Focus 40 Blue which is all I really want
it to do.

Hello,

I would agree with Joseph, but I also would through Lenovo in as a great
laptop. But, stay away from Acer, which also makes Gateway. I have had
experience with both of these in my previous job, and we always had trouble
with both brands. Good luck in your search.

Hello,
First, it'll depend on tasks you'll be doing with your laptop. But the
most
important thing is not just brands, but the components does matter.
I'd recommend the following configurations:
* Brand: Asus, HP, Toshiba, Samsung.
* Processor: Intel Core I3 or I5 or AMD equivalent.
* RAM: At least 8 GB.
* Hard disk size: At least 750 GB or 128 GB SSD.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hello everyone,
I have been using JAWS with windows XP for 5 years and have had very few
issues. But since support for windows xp is ending soon and I am going
back
to school, I am looking to buy a Windows 7 laptop. But all of the
resources
I have read on freedomscientific.com and other sites are kind of vague
about
the system requirements needed for JAWS, especially with regard to
processor
speed. I am not a tech expert, so all of the jargon overwhelms me. Five
years ago, I worked with DVR who purchased my laptop through a vendor, but
this time since I have some money from a temp job, I thought it would be
fun
to pick out my own laptop. Little did I know how overwhelming this would
be.
So I am wondering if anyone who uses a windows 7 laptop and is happy with
it
could give me specific recommendations on exactly which brands (Dell,
Lenovo
HP etc) you have found to be the most blind-friendly in your opinion, and
exactly what specifications you have found to work best.
Thank you so much in advance for any input you can offer.

Re: Laptop purchasing advice

While there are many suggestions the one thing that is important in the
decision making process is cost and whether or not it fits in to the
person's computer system budget.
Additionally what the computer is going to be used for and how long one
intends to keep the computer before updating to a new one is also important.

Allison,

I think you are getting some very good advice on this thread!

I would add the following ideas.
1. I lean toward Lenovo

2. 8 gigs of ram would be best but checking on Amazon quickly, I don't find
too many laptops with that much ram.


6 gigs might be acceptable, but 4 gigs of ram is definitely not enough.

3.

Processor speed and type, I think is very important.
I think you should get an I5 rather than an I3.
4.

Mor important, I think the processor speed should be no less than 2.5 GHZ

It seems to me that each new version of Jaws, Kurzweil, Openbook and
Microsoft office is more resource intensive.
That's why you need a good fast processor speed. While you ar making a new

investment, you may as well get enough horse power to pull the heavy load!

Re: Laptop purchasing advice

Ed Marquette <marquette.ed@...>
 

Agree that Lenovo should be thrown into the mix. Have had
problems with HP, but anyone can get one lemon.
The keyboard configuration is the most important component.
It is ideal if it can be configured so you have an active
capslock, insert, and applications key. Two Windows keys would be
nice.
If you don't end up with an applications key, check out the
function key configuration. Make sure you can easily locate the
F-10 key.

Re: JAWS 13 on a Thumb drive Question

Michael Boyd <mikeboyd61@...>
 

Well Paul,

I don't think you really ever got an answer to your question. Inorder to run JAWS from a flash drive, you have to apply for a "Dongle", which allows you to use JAWS from a thumb drive with a full license. You can download a "portable" version of JAWS from Freedom Scientific, but without the dongle, it will only run in 40 minute mode. Just like the desktop version before being authorized. Also, in order to acquire this dongle, you have to be approved by submitting a form telling Freedom Scientific just what you intend to use it for, and you must have a good reason. Then you pay $45.00 for the dongle. So if you want to try for one, you can download the application on the FS web site.

hth,
Mike

Me again. Sorry, Jim, there's a much easier way now. Facebook actually got
it right.

1. Bring up the person's Facebook profile.
2. Again, use the Control f function to bring up the Jaws Find Dialog.
3. Search for the word following
4. You should hit a "following" button if you're friends with that person.
Pressing space bar on that button should change it from "following" to
"follow".

That seems to do it. They don't seem to offer you choices of all, most, or
only important updates, but that following button seems to say you get the
items in your newsfeed or you don't. Give it a shot.

The second used to be Settings I think, where you could choose whether to receive all updates, most updates, only important updates, or none. That option is gone tonight for me, but this is Facebook; it might come back tomorrow.

Note: You cannot do this in Facebook mobile. You must use the full Facebook to even have a shot at this.

I don't know if that helps you, but good luck.

The first one for me is "get notifications". If you check that option, you'll get notified of every post that friend makes as a notification.
The second used to be Settings I think, where you could choose whether to receive all updates, most updates, only important updates, or none. That option is gone tonight for me, but this is Facebook; it might come back tomorrow.

Note: You cannot do this in Facebook mobile. You must use the full Facebook to even have a shot at this.

I don't know if that helps you, but good luck.

Hiding on Facebook and JAWS

Hi there,



I'm trying to see if I can hide someone from my newsfeed on Facebook without
completely unfriending them. Is this possible, and if so, how? I am trying
to use JAWS and Internet Explorer.

Thanks.

Re: Silencing the Pronunciation of Keystrokes

And Dan, bear in mind that when you update to JAWS 16 next year, you will
need to do it again. For some reason, these key label setting don't merge
over. A real PITA.

Thanks all. It worked like a charm. I think when I looked before, I forgot

1. Insert f2 and down arrow to setting center and press enter.
2. CTRL shift d to make the following changes apply across the board
and not for the focused application.
3. In the search box of the setting center, type in manage and down
arrow until you hear manage key lables and press spacebar.
4. In this dialog, down arrow and press spacebar on the key you want
muted.
5. Tab to the ok button, tab to apply and then back to ok and you are
done.

Hello all.



Is there any way in JAWS 15 to silence the verbalization of keystrokes such
as tab, alt tat, space and enter?



Thanks.

Re: Silencing the Pronunciation of Keystrokes

Lee Maschmeyer
 

Dan,

One can silence either all keystrokes or just specific ones.

The way to silence all keyboard echo is to open Settings Center (Insert+6), press Control+Shift+D for the Default settings, tab once to User, use right arrow to open that item, arrow down to Typing Echo, and press Space until it says Off.

To silence specific keys, go to Settings Center as above, arrow down to Keyboard and press Right Arrow, arrow down to Manage Key Labels dot dot dot and press Space, arrow to the keys you want to silence and for each press Space so the "Speak" turns to "Mute".

HTH,

Correct on all counts, technically speaking. Except the P in CPU is for the word "Processing". The term is Central Processing Unit.

I wish people, would not call a computer a "CPU". A computer is not, a CPU and vice versa. It is one of those Americanisms, which are, as usual, completely inaccurate and, therefore, definitely wrong.

For those of you who do not know, the achronym, CPU, stands for Central Processor Unit. It is the brain of your computer. It is a chip, which plugs into a socket on the motherboard.

Good morning,



I'm using JAWS 13 and would like to know how to put JAWS on a thumb drive.



I would just like to place it into the correct slot then turn on the CPU
and
it'll come up spitting out the desktop icons. Thank you,



Have a great day,
