When I recently reinstalled Windows XP Pro on my computer and installed JAWS
9, the JAWS installation program did not, I repeat, did not, assign
CTRL+ALT+J or, any other shortcut key combination to JAWS 9.

Likewise, when I installed JAWS 10, 11, and 12, none of the installation

Not necessarily. Assuming JAWS 11 is the latest version
installed on your

computer, it was automatically assigned the hot key
Alt-Control-J when it
was originally installed. Unless you delete this "hidden" hot
key, it
will always launch JAWS 11, even if you create the user-defined
hot key
Alt-Control-J for JAWS 10. As a rule, hot keys automatically
assigned by
an application take precedence over hot keys defined by the
user. You can

use Hot Key Detective to determine whether a particular hot key is
application assigned or user assigned. When I installed the
demo version
of JAWS 10, Alt-Control-J, which had been created automatically
when I
originally installed JAWS 9, was automatically reassigned to
JAWS 10. In
order to reassign Alt-Control-J back to JAWS 9, my default
version of
JAWS, I had to use Hot Key Detective to delete Alt-Control-J
from JAWS 10
and then use the Properties dialog of JAWS 9 to re-create it as a
user-assigned hot key.

Karen:

Yesterday, if you remember, I assigned CTRL+ALT+J to JAWS 10
first and
then JAWS 11. I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed the
shortcut key
combination to see which version of JAWS Windows would
launch. In that
instance, JAWS 11 was launched over JAWS 10.

Following your comments in your reply, I reversed the actions
of my
experiment, to see whether Windows reversed its action, that
is, launch
JAWS 10 over JAWS11.

I first deleted the CTRL+ALT+J shortcut key combination for
JAWS 10 and
JAWS 11.

I then assigned the shortcut key to JAWS 11 first and did the
same with
JAWS 10.

I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed CTRL+ALT+J and waited to
see which
version of JAWS would be loaded.

Well, surprise, surprise, Windows did reverse its action and
launched
JAWS 10 over JAWS 11.

It appears that if you assign the same shortcut key to more
than one
application, Windows will launch the last program to which you
assigned
the shortcut key combination, that is, the application which
has the
latest updated date and time stamps.

Dave and everyone:

From what I can tell, the JAWS installation does not
automatically
assign CTRL+ALT+J, as a short cut to start JAWS.

I was using JAWS 10 at the time. As an experiment, I assigned
CTRL+ALT+J, to both JAWS 10 and 11. Windows did not
complain that I
had assigned the short cut to two applications. I unloaded
JAWS 10 and

press CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see which version of JAWS
would be
loaded. Well, in my example, JAWS 11 was loaded.

It would help, if Windows allowed only one occurrence of a
short cut
key combination to be allowed to launch a program. So, if
you tried to

assign a short cut combination that was already assigned to
a program
to another program, Windows would tell you that this was the
case and
give you another opportunity to choose another short cut
combination
for the other program.

Mike,

Not quite.

Checking the "Start JAWS automatically" just ensure that
JAWS will
start up
on boot of the computer.

When installing a new version (say from 11 to 12) a
shortcut will be
added
to the desktop with the version number (e.g. JAWS 12) and
it may or
may not
have the Ctrl+alt+J keystroke assigned.

If you have more than one major version of JAWS (9, 10, 11,
12) you
could
end up with a desktop shortcut for each, and usually the
first one
with the
hotkey.

Users like Tom need to edit the shortcut preferences for
the old
version and
the new to ensure that only one has the hotkey assigned.

Hi Tom,

There is no need to transfer the alt, control, + J,
keystroke. That
is the
default shortcut keystroke for all versions of Jaws. What
you need to

do is
go to the Jaws12 context menu / options / basics and check
the box to
have
Jaws12 start automatically. By checking this box in any
version of
Jaws,
tells Jaws to use this particular keystroke as the shortcut
keystroke.

Hope
this helps. Take care.

Re: [Bulk] What to do about XP machines

Cy Selfridge
 

Hi Karen,
The old saying is that "if it ain't broke then don't fix it?. This sure
applies when it comes to FS.
If your current release of JAWS works for you then wait until bugs are known
in the newest release.
I concur with some of the comments about JAWS 13, new features would be nice
but I sure wish they would fix some of the known bugs in 12 such as Excel
and Access.
Also, another old saying is the "KISS" principle (Keep it simple stupid)
which FS might want to consider as a development stratigy.
Kinda like Open Book, much too many "gizmos" to accomplish what used to be a
simple task which was scan the document and translate it into a text or Word
file so one could read and edit it.
Oh well, JMO, Cy

Hello, everyone.

In a recent post, I believe Adrian said the following:

"Many listers have reported flaws in JAWS 12,
possibly because it is more directed to Windows 7 than XP. ... I still
use
XP Pro,
and the warnings on this list have convinced me to stay with JAWS 11,
even
though my SMA entitles me to JAWS 12."

The timing for this comment couldn't have been better in my case.

Although this is likely to change soon as my University switches us all
completely over to Windows 7, my desktop at work is still an XP machine,
and
still has Jaws 11. The back-up PC I have at home is an XP machine, and
that
too has Jaws 11.

So, is the collective wisdom of the group to keep things as they are now
on
the XP machines, rather than installing Jaws 12 which seems to be geared
more to Windows 7?

If this is true, you guys have just saved me some head-aches with my
remaining XP computers, and I thank you sincerely for that.

I'll save my headaches for installing Jaws 12 on the new Windows 7 laptop
the University will give me this week. (smile)

Re: [Bulk] Transferring Alt Control J shortcut fromJaws11toJaws12

Adrian Spratt
 

Gerald,

We shouldn't be framing this question as an argument. You're very accurate
in your posts, as are those who describe the opposite experience. To me, it
makes sense for FS to create the hotkey automatically because, as this
thread shows, doing it on our own can be vexing. So I wonder how it is that
your versions of JAWS save you the trouble while mine, for one, puts the
burden on me.

The drawback of having the manufacturer create the hotkey is the possibility
of conflict with an existing one. For example, your OpenBook hotkey would
conflict with my Outlook hotkey.

I wonder if anyone can suggest why different systems get or don't get the
automatic alt-control-j hotkey.

Then how do you explain the fact that my version of JAWS 9 had the hot key
of Alt-Control-J when it was originally installed? I did not assign this
hot key myself, and Hot Key Detective confirmed that it was not
user-assigned. Hot Key Detective designates user-defined hot keys as
"personal" and system or program-assigned hot keys as "common".
Alt-Control-J was designated as "common", which means that it was not
user-assigned. So where did it come from? And how do you explain the fact
that When Open Book 7 was installed, it was assigned the hot key
Alt-Control-O? Again, I didn't assign it myself.

Not necessarily. Assuming JAWS 11 is the latest version installed on
your computer, it was automatically assigned the hot key
Alt-Control-J when it was originally installed. Unless you delete
this "hidden" hot key, it will always launch JAWS 11, even if you
create the user-defined hot key Alt-Control-J for JAWS 10. As a
rule, hot keys automatically assigned by an application take
precedence over hot keys defined by the user. You can use Hot Key
Detective to determine whether a particular hot key is application
assigned or user assigned. When I installed the demo version of JAWS
10, Alt-Control-J, which had been created automatically when I
originally installed JAWS 9, was automatically reassigned to JAWS 10.
In order to reassign Alt-Control-J back to JAWS 9, my default version
of JAWS, I had to use Hot Key Detective to delete Alt-Control-J from
JAWS 10 and then use the Properties dialog of JAWS 9 to re-create it as a
user-assigned hot key.

Karen:

Yesterday, if you remember, I assigned CTRL+ALT+J to JAWS 10 first
and then JAWS 11. I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed the shortcut
key combination to see which version of JAWS Windows would launch.
In that instance, JAWS 11 was launched over JAWS 10.

Following your comments in your reply, I reversed the actions of my
experiment, to see whether Windows reversed its action, that is,
launch JAWS 10 over JAWS11.

I first deleted the CTRL+ALT+J shortcut key combination for JAWS 10
and JAWS 11.

I then assigned the shortcut key to JAWS 11 first and did the same
with JAWS 10.

I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see
which version of JAWS would be loaded.

Well, surprise, surprise, Windows did reverse its action and
launched JAWS 10 over JAWS 11.

It appears that if you assign the same shortcut key to more than one
application, Windows will launch the last program to which you
assigned the shortcut key combination, that is, the application
which has the latest updated date and time stamps.

Dave and everyone:

From what I can tell, the JAWS installation does not automatically
assign CTRL+ALT+J, as a short cut to start JAWS.

I was using JAWS 10 at the time. As an experiment, I assigned
CTRL+ALT+J, to both JAWS 10 and 11. Windows did not complain
CTRL+ALT+that I
had assigned the short cut to two applications. I unloaded JAWS
10 and press CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see which version of JAWS
would be loaded. Well, in my example, JAWS 11 was loaded.

It would help, if Windows allowed only one occurrence of a short
cut key combination to be allowed to launch a program. So, if you
tried to assign a short cut combination that was already assigned
to a program to another program, Windows would tell you that this
was the case and give you another opportunity to choose another
short cut combination for the other program.

Mike,

Not quite.

Checking the "Start JAWS automatically" just ensure that JAWS
will start up on boot of the computer.

When installing a new version (say from 11 to 12) a shortcut will
be added to the desktop with the version number (e.g. JAWS 12)
and it may or may not have the Ctrl+alt+J keystroke assigned.

If you have more than one major version of JAWS (9, 10, 11, 12)
you could end up with a desktop shortcut for each, and usually
the first one with the hotkey.

Users like Tom need to edit the shortcut preferences for the old
version and the new to ensure that only one has the hotkey
assigned.

Hi Tom,

There is no need to transfer the alt, control, + J, keystroke.
That is the default shortcut keystroke for all versions of Jaws.
What you need to do is go to the Jaws12 context menu / options /
basics and check the box to have
Jaws12 start automatically. By checking this box in any version
of Jaws, tells Jaws to use this particular keystroke as the
shortcut keystroke. Hope this helps. Take care.

Hi, again.

I just thought of one more question here.

What is the best way to transfer the Alt Control J shortcut to
Jaws
12
from
Jaws 11, when doing the upgrade process?

I seem to recall having a problem with this once before in
earlier upgrades, and can't remember how to resolve it.

All I remember is that I had great difficulty transferring the
shortcut over to the new version of Jaws from the earlier
version.

I would have thought that the "merge utilities" function would
have taken care of this, but it didn't in my earlier upgrade
efforts.

Thanks for putting up with all my questions lately.

Re: [Bulk] Transferring Alt Control J shortcut fromJaws 11toJaws12

Gerald Levy
 

Then how do you explain the fact that my version of JAWS 9 had the hot key of Alt-Control-J when it was originally installed? I did not assign this hot key myself, and Hot Key Detective confirmed that it was not user-assigned. Hot Key Detective designates user-defined hot keys as "personal" and system or program-assigned hot keys as "common". Alt-Control-J was designated as "common", which means that it was not user-assigned. So where did it come from? And how do you explain the fact that When Open Book 7 was installed, it was assigned the hot key Alt-Control-O? Again, I didn't assign it myself.

In order to reassign Alt-Control-J back to JAWS 9, my default version of JAWS, I had to use Hot Key Detective to delete Alt-Control-J from JAWS 10 and then use the Properties dialog of JAWS 9 to re-create it as a user-assigned hot key.

Hi Tom,

There is no need to transfer the alt, control, + J, keystroke. That is the
default shortcut keystroke for all versions of Jaws. What you need to do is
go to the Jaws12 context menu / options / basics and check the box to have
Jaws12 start automatically. By checking this box in any version of Jaws,
tells Jaws to use this particular keystroke as the shortcut keystroke. Hope

I believe Mostafa Al'Mahdy harvested my email address from this or similar

have reported him to Gmail. Those of you receiving similar mail may wish

The form at this URL requests message headers, gmail user id of the

be sure to have that handy to paste into the right places.

Re: Jaws installation question for Windows 7 laptop

if I am not mistaken the Freedom Scientific Jaws 12 CD has both and will load the proper one due to a difference in how the two versions of windows 7 goes about this.

its those of us using downloaded copies, home made CD's thumb drives or network shares to load it that need to know what our system is.

Hi, folks.

I have read some discussion about the need to determine whether a windows 7 machine is either 32-bit or 64-bit prior to actually installing Jaws.

I have been told that you must select either the 32-bit or 64-bit Jaws package before conducting the installation process.

Is this true?

If so, how do you make that selection from the Jaws 12 installation CD?

Hello, everyone.

In a recent post, I believe Adrian said the following:

"Many listers have reported flaws in JAWS 12,
possibly because it is more directed to Windows 7 than XP. ... I still use
XP Pro,
and the warnings on this list have convinced me to stay with JAWS 11, even
though my SMA entitles me to JAWS 12."

The timing for this comment couldn't have been better in my case.

Although this is likely to change soon as my University switches us all
completely over to Windows 7, my desktop at work is still an XP machine, and
still has Jaws 11. The back-up PC I have at home is an XP machine, and that
too has Jaws 11.

So, is the collective wisdom of the group to keep things as they are now on
the XP machines, rather than installing Jaws 12 which seems to be geared
more to Windows 7?

If this is true, you guys have just saved me some head-aches with my
remaining XP computers, and I thank you sincerely for that.

I'll save my headaches for installing Jaws 12 on the new Windows 7 laptop
the University will give me this week. (smile)

Not necessarily. Assuming JAWS 11 is the latest version installed on your
computer, it was automatically assigned the hot key Alt-Control-J when it
was originally installed. Unless you delete this "hidden" hot key, it will
always launch JAWS 11, even if you create the user-defined hot key
Alt-Control-J for JAWS 10. As a rule, hot keys automatically assigned by an
application take precedence over hot keys defined by the user. You can use
Hot Key Detective to determine whether a particular hot key is application
assigned or user assigned. When I installed the demo version of JAWS 10,
Alt-Control-J, which had been created automatically when I originally
installed JAWS 9, was automatically reassigned to JAWS 10. In order to
reassign Alt-Control-J back to JAWS 9, my default version of JAWS, I had to
use Hot Key Detective to delete Alt-Control-J from JAWS 10 and then use the
Properties dialog of JAWS 9 to re-create it as a user-assigned hot key.

Gerald,

I just installed JAWS 12 last night. No hotkey was assigned. I don't recall
JAWS automatically assigning a hotkey in the past, either.

Regarding Hotkey Detective, I was advised, and I soon confirmed, that it
detects only hotkeys assigned to desktop icons. Hotkeys assigned to
applications through the programs menu are not detected.

Not necessarily. Assuming JAWS 11 is the latest version installed on your
computer, it was automatically assigned the hot key Alt-Control-J when it
was originally installed. Unless you delete this "hidden" hot key, it will
always launch JAWS 11, even if you create the user-defined hot key
Alt-Control-J for JAWS 10. As a rule, hot keys automatically assigned by an
application take precedence over hot keys defined by the user. You can use
Hot Key Detective to determine whether a particular hot key is application
assigned or user assigned. When I installed the demo version of JAWS 10,
Alt-Control-J, which had been created automatically when I originally
installed JAWS 9, was automatically reassigned to JAWS 10. In order to
reassign Alt-Control-J back to JAWS 9, my default version of JAWS, I had to
use Hot Key Detective to delete Alt-Control-J from JAWS 10 and then use the
Properties dialog of JAWS 9 to re-create it as a user-assigned hot key.

Karen:

Yesterday, if you remember, I assigned CTRL+ALT+J to JAWS 10 first and
then JAWS 11. I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed the shortcut key
combination to see which version of JAWS Windows would launch. In
that instance, JAWS 11 was launched over JAWS 10.

Following your comments in your reply, I reversed the actions of my
experiment, to see whether Windows reversed its action, that is,
launch JAWS 10 over JAWS11.

I first deleted the CTRL+ALT+J shortcut key combination for JAWS 10
and JAWS 11.

I then assigned the shortcut key to JAWS 11 first and did the same
with JAWS 10.

I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see which
version of JAWS would be loaded.

Well, surprise, surprise, Windows did reverse its action and launched
JAWS 10 over JAWS 11.

It appears that if you assign the same shortcut key to more than one
application, Windows will launch the last program to which you
assigned the shortcut key combination, that is, the application which
has the latest updated date and time stamps.

Dave and everyone:

From what I can tell, the JAWS installation does not automatically
assign CTRL+ALT+J, as a short cut to start JAWS.

I was using JAWS 10 at the time. As an experiment, I assigned
CTRL+ALT+J, to both JAWS 10 and 11. Windows did not complain that I
had assigned the short cut to two applications. I unloaded JAWS 10 and
press CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see which version of JAWS would be
loaded. Well, in my example, JAWS 11 was loaded.

It would help, if Windows allowed only one occurrence of a short cut key
combination to be allowed to launch a program. So, if you tried to
assign a short cut combination that was already assigned to a program to
another program, Windows would tell you that this was the case and give
you another opportunity to choose another short cut combination for the
other program.

Mike,

Not quite.

Checking the "Start JAWS automatically" just ensure that JAWS will
start up
on boot of the computer.

When installing a new version (say from 11 to 12) a shortcut will be
added
to the desktop with the version number (e.g. JAWS 12) and it may or may
not
have the Ctrl+alt+J keystroke assigned.

If you have more than one major version of JAWS (9, 10, 11, 12) you
could
end up with a desktop shortcut for each, and usually the first one with
the
hotkey.

Users like Tom need to edit the shortcut preferences for the old
version and
the new to ensure that only one has the hotkey assigned.

Hi Tom,

There is no need to transfer the alt, control, + J, keystroke. That is
the
default shortcut keystroke for all versions of Jaws. What you need to
do is
go to the Jaws12 context menu / options / basics and check the box to
have
Jaws12 start automatically. By checking this box in any version of
Jaws,
tells Jaws to use this particular keystroke as the shortcut keystroke.
Hope
this helps. Take care.

Hi, again.

I just thought of one more question here.

What is the best way to transfer the Alt Control J shortcut to Jaws 12
from
Jaws 11, when doing the upgrade process?

I seem to recall having a problem with this once before in earlier
upgrades,
and can't remember how to resolve it.

All I remember is that I had great difficulty transferring the
shortcut
over
to the new version of Jaws from the earlier version.

I would have thought that the "merge utilities" function would have
taken
care of this, but it didn't in my earlier upgrade efforts.

Thanks for putting up with all my questions lately.

Yeah think that the only part of this that relates to the list is these are from a person who has harvested addresses that is a security threat. I have save in my junk folder the gmail report information and have sent and will continue to send his crap to the feds. when I replied to him by accident told him he was being reported and his answer was mentally stupid crap along the line of next time write in english and then you can talk. must have had typos. but this is a possible security wrisk the administraitors should watch for his email and find how he has gotten our addresses before he really does something more than put out this racest crap. he can do worse things to blind and visualy impaired from the information he has gotten.

I believe Mostafa Al'Mahdy harvested my email address from this or
similar blindness-related listserves. Since he has chosen to ignore my
public and private requests to not be mailed any more of his political

The form at this URL requests message headers, gmail user id of the

so be sure to have that handy to paste into the right places.

Following your comments in your reply, I reversed the actions of my
experiment, to see whether Windows reversed its action, that is,
launch JAWS 10 over JAWS11.

I first deleted the CTRL+ALT+J shortcut key combination for JAWS 10
and JAWS 11.

I then assigned the shortcut key to JAWS 11 first and did the same
with JAWS 10.

I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see which
version of JAWS would be loaded.

Well, surprise, surprise, Windows did reverse its action and launched
JAWS 10 over JAWS 11.

It appears that if you assign the same shortcut key to more than one
application, Windows will launch the last program to which you
assigned the shortcut key combination, that is, the application which
has the latest updated date and time stamps.

Dave and everyone:

From what I can tell, the JAWS installation does not automatically
assign CTRL+ALT+J, as a short cut to start JAWS.

I was using JAWS 10 at the time. As an experiment, I assigned
CTRL+ALT+J, to both JAWS 10 and 11. Windows did not complain that I
had assigned the short cut to two applications. I unloaded JAWS 10 and
press CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see which version of JAWS would be
loaded. Well, in my example, JAWS 11 was loaded.

It would help, if Windows allowed only one occurrence of a short cut key
combination to be allowed to launch a program. So, if you tried to
assign a short cut combination that was already assigned to a program to
another program, Windows would tell you that this was the case and give
you another opportunity to choose another short cut combination for the
other program.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Mike,

Not quite.

Checking the "Start JAWS automatically" just ensure that JAWS will
start up
on boot of the computer.

When installing a new version (say from 11 to 12) a shortcut will be
added
to the desktop with the version number (e.g. JAWS 12) and it may or may
not
have the Ctrl+alt+J keystroke assigned.

If you have more than one major version of JAWS (9, 10, 11, 12) you
could
end up with a desktop shortcut for each, and usually the first one with
the
hotkey.

Users like Tom need to edit the shortcut preferences for the old
version and
the new to ensure that only one has the hotkey assigned.

Hi Tom,

There is no need to transfer the alt, control, + J, keystroke. That is
the
default shortcut keystroke for all versions of Jaws. What you need to
do is
go to the Jaws12 context menu / options / basics and check the box to
have
Jaws12 start automatically. By checking this box in any version of
Jaws,
tells Jaws to use this particular keystroke as the shortcut keystroke.
Hope
this helps. Take care.

Hi, again.

I just thought of one more question here.

What is the best way to transfer the Alt Control J shortcut to Jaws 12
from
Jaws 11, when doing the upgrade process?

I seem to recall having a problem with this once before in earlier
upgrades,
and can't remember how to resolve it.

All I remember is that I had great difficulty transferring the
shortcut
over
to the new version of Jaws from the earlier version.

I would have thought that the "merge utilities" function would have
taken
care of this, but it didn't in my earlier upgrade efforts.

Thanks for putting up with all my questions lately.

Tom in Michigan

Adrian, I've been using jaws for around thirteen years, and it definitely
never has.

Gerald,

I just installed JAWS 12 last night. No hotkey was assigned. I don't recall
JAWS automatically assigning a hotkey in the past, either.

Regarding Hotkey Detective, I was advised, and I soon confirmed, that it
detects only hotkeys assigned to desktop icons. Hotkeys assigned to
applications through the programs menu are not detected.

Not necessarily. Assuming JAWS 11 is the latest version installed on your
computer, it was automatically assigned the hot key Alt-Control-J when it
was originally installed. Unless you delete this "hidden" hot key, it will
always launch JAWS 11, even if you create the user-defined hot key
Alt-Control-J for JAWS 10. As a rule, hot keys automatically assigned by an
application take precedence over hot keys defined by the user. You can use
Hot Key Detective to determine whether a particular hot key is application
assigned or user assigned. When I installed the demo version of JAWS 10,
Alt-Control-J, which had been created automatically when I originally
installed JAWS 9, was automatically reassigned to JAWS 10. In order to
reassign Alt-Control-J back to JAWS 9, my default version of JAWS, I had to
use Hot Key Detective to delete Alt-Control-J from JAWS 10 and then use the
Properties dialog of JAWS 9 to re-create it as a user-assigned hot key.
