Does it matter if you use the update feature or should we use the regular download route: going to the site etc.? I was just surprised when the updater gave a chance to check updating a whole new feature.

Thanks, but I thought if you had JAWS 2020, and you check for updates it would tell you there is a new version for 2021.

Mine did not so I went to the website.

Is that a bug?

Thank you Pastor. May the Lord be ith you as you navigate through this version/downloadin’ it now! I think that should’ve been the norm all the time, having the major versions pop up in the auto-updater. It’s much faster than waiting for the CD to come out and all.

It's the same settings for making the icons appear on the taskbar versus not.  And if you have them set to appear, and they're not there, you need to check if the processes/programs that should be running that make them appear are actually doing so (but that's not likely to be necessary).

Hello everyone,

I have a client who wishes to use some dictation software with JAWS. We have tried the new Dictate add-in with Word and JAWS. It works reasonably well, but seems to lack some of the “bells and whistles” like literal numbers or word and correction. But for get thoughts on a page and going back and “cleaning up, it is a good choice.

I get very mixed reviews on Dragon Naturally speaking and JAWS. I read everything from it works well to they don’t play nice together and it is difficult to set up.

Wondering about experiences anyone may have had trying to use Dragon with JAWS. My person is running JAWS 2020, and Office 365 on a Windows 10 computer. If it does work what do we have to do to make it so? Also a question of a headset mic vs tabletop. My client doesn’t care for headsets, but if a must have, a recommendation for a reasonably priced one.

Thanks

Press the JAWS key—the insert key on the numberpad—key 0/the long horizontal one at the bottom of the pad—and the letter w. Again that’s JAWS and the letter w while in Word. Hope this helps. If you’re using a laptop, I’d think the caps lock key and w would do the same thing/caps lock is JAWS key on laptops

Hi Brian and fellow listers,

 

Thank you for the feedback. Yes, I am using MS Word and will take you up on your advice on using an available template. JFW and Win. 10 are new to me and I appreciate your inputs. Is there a manual in JFW menu where I can look up key commands? For example there are specific key commands for word count and font. The JFW help using insert H seems to generate the more basic commands.

 

Thank you, again!

Vaughn,

            You'd need to be a lot more specific about the nits they're picking in order to get a focused answer.  That being said, I would ask what font face and point size is wanted as a starting point.  And if all of your papers are to be delivered to individuals and departments who dictate that font then I'd edit your Normal.dotm file (details later, if needed) so that any blank document you open will default to having it from the get-go.

             Word includes the Styles feature, and if you are told which of the various Styles they'd prefer you use, you could activate that before starting the paper and the various fonts, sizes, indents, outline/bullet styles, etc., will conform to that Style.

             It's the parentheses part I really can't answer, as they will be presented in whatever font you're using.  Now if the issue is they want different delimiters at different times, e.g. square brackets, curly braces, and the like then they need to make clear under what circumstances each is wanted, or refer you to something like the Chicago Manual of Style or other formatting reference that reflects what's being asked for.
