Jaws takes three to six minutes to load

brian albriton
 

The subject line says it. Just a few more details are that I'm using jaws
15, but even earlier versions take a long time to load.
I got this computer in 2011 and here are some general specs pulled from the
properties window.

Is this not enough computer to handle jaws?
Grins and cheers, Brian

While browsing the Ease of Access Center, in the same area as the JAVA
Access Bridge, I found a checkbox for "Turn on audio description". Anyone
tried using it? I presume it's for videos?

Hi Dave,

That's really strange. I just got a reply from my local movie theater confirming to me that they have audio discription available in their theater. So, now I am going to start seeing a new realese now and again.

I am not sure about the audio description in the Ease of Access Center, but it sound like that might be just what it is. I have never noticed it there before. Although it is becoming more prevalent these days, audio description, like closed captioning, is not available on all movies, but movies that do not have it are becoming more a thing of the past. I am going to try it out on my computer though. I have lots of movies, and surely some of them have audio description available on them. Thanks for pointing this find out.

Mike

Hi,
i'm using lenovo here but unfortunately i dont have insert key, yes, you're right, insert key. need to press fn+page down, for insert, and fn+page up for scroll lock and something like that! So it's very difficult for me, using lenovo g485. so be careful when choosing! just sharing my experience.

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!

Subject: Laptop purchasing advice

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.
Allison Nastoff

Re: Finding JAB in Ease of access center Was: Ease Of AccessCenterEnable Java Bridge Topic was balloons

Adrian Spratt
 

Okay, I've made some more progress, thanks to the tips on this list.

As Mike suggested below, there is a download link. It's hard to find, but this link should take you to the actual download page:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jab-2-0-2-download-354311.html

Note that before the download link is displayed, you must check the box accepting Oracle's license agreement, which appears on that page. Once you've checked it, Oracle will graciously thank you and produce the link. Some arrowing down is required.

Once I clicked on the link, I followed Mike's earlier suggestion of selecting "open" instead of "save."

Unfortunately, I was then informed that I had no associated program on my system. I infer it should be JRE Java. So I gave up.

But if I install JRE in the future, I believe these steps, combined with the "Ease of Access" steps detailed by Soronel and others, will enable installation of Access Bridge.

Hello Adrian,

I read the information on the web page that you sent the link for. I do not
remember it being that complicated. As I remember, I pretty much just
clicked on "Open" when prompted after clicking on the download link on the
Java web site, and let the Access Bridge install itself. The only other
Java product that I had running on my computer at that time was the Java Run
Time Enviroment or JRE. And, of course Java Script, that I believe was
preinstalled in Internet Explorer. However, I did go to the Ease of Access
Center in Control Panel and enabled the Access Bridge. Also, I could not
tell after installing and enableing it that there was any difference in the
way that my computer, JAWS, or anything else operated.

I have the same experience as Mike B. Earlier in this thread, Mike Boyd
posted that you need to have the Access Bridge installed in order for this
checkbox to appear here.

Again, the method Oracle provides for installing JAB seems incredibly
convoluted.

Does anyone have experience installing Java Access Bridge on a 64-bit Win7
system?

Here's the link to the Oracle page explaining how to do the installation:

be on this page in the same list as whatever versions of jaws you have

Re: Finding JAB in Ease of access center Was: Ease Of AccessCenterEnable Java Bridge Topic was balloons

Michael Boyd <mikeboyd61@...>
 

Hello Adrian,

I read the information on the web page that you sent the link for. I do not remember it being that complicated. As I remember, I pretty much just clicked on "Open" when prompted after clicking on the download link on the Java web site, and let the Access Bridge install itself. The only other Java product that I had running on my computer at that time was the Java Run Time Enviroment or JRE. And, of course Java Script, that I believe was preinstalled in Internet Explorer. However, I did go to the Ease of Access Center in Control Panel and enabled the Access Bridge. Also, I could not tell after installing and enableing it that there was any difference in the way that my computer, JAWS, or anything else operated.

Mike

I have the same experience as Mike B. Earlier in this thread, Mike Boyd posted that you need to have the Access Bridge installed in order for this checkbox to appear here.

Again, the method Oracle provides for installing JAB seems incredibly convoluted.

Does anyone have experience installing Java Access Bridge on a 64-bit Win7 system?

Here's the link to the Oracle page explaining how to do the installation: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/accessbridge/2.0.2/setup.htm#installing-jab-64-bit

Bring up the ease of access center, tab down to "Use the computer without a display" and hit space. The Enable Java Access bridge" checkbox should be on this page in the same list as whatever versions of jaws you have installed.

No, it will not hurt anything. In fact, it will probably give more functionality in some of your apps. I keep this enabled on my PC as well.

Hi While in the Ease of Access Center I did find the combo box to change the notifications to 30 seconds instead of the default 7 seconds. While I was there I stumbled upon this unchecked checkbox for Enable Java access Bridge. I have seen some chat sites requiring this java access bridge. Will it hurt anything to enable this java access bridge? Vista Home 32 bit.

applications? I don't want to pay the extra $100+ if I don't have to; thanks.

Sincerely,

Lauren

Jfw mailing list Jfw@lists.the-jdh.com http://lists.the-jdh.com/mailman/listinfo/jfw_lists.the-jdh.com I have the same experience as Mike B. Earlier in this thread, Mike Boyd posted that you need to have the Access Bridge installed in order for this checkbox to appear here.

Again, the method Oracle provides for installing JAB seems incredibly convoluted.

Does anyone have experience installing Java Access Bridge on a 64-bit Win7 system?

Here's the link to the Oracle page explaining how to do the installation: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/accessbridge/2.0.2/setup.htm#installing-jab-64-bit

Finding JAB in Ease of access center Was: Ease Of Access Center Enable Java Bridge Topic was balloons

Soronel Haetir
 

Bring up the ease of access center, tab down to "Use the computer
without a display" and hit space.
The Enable Java Access bridge" checkbox should be on this page in the
same list as whatever versions of jaws you have installed.

No, it will not hurt anything. In fact, it will probably give more

Re: Ease Of Access Center Enable Java Bridge Topic was balloons

Adrian Spratt
 

Hi, Mike.

I've been away on a trip, and I apologize for picking up on this thread a week later. You say that installing Access Bridge is easy, but I'm on the relevant Oracle page and it looks incredibly complicated. The way Oracle describes it, the process involves copying over numerous files rather than a straight download. Where did you find the simple method? Here's the link to the page I refer to:
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/accessbridge/2.0.2/setup.htm#installing-jab-64-bit

If you will select open instead of save at the download prompt, it is real
easy. Then, all you really have to do is click on yes at the UAC dialogue.
It should install itself after that.

I would agree with Joseph, but I also would through Lenovo in as a great

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.

Hello Michael,
I have an Acer, could you please identify some of the issues you had with yours to assist me in identifying the cause of some issues I have with mine?
Thank you,
Kevin Hourigan.

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

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!

Peter

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

I would just like to place it into the correct slot then turn on the CPU and
