Re: To upgrade or not

Hi Cliff,
I do not know which version of 10 I was running but 11, latest build, does
work very well on XP and is more stable than my 10 was.

Subject: To upgrade or not

I'm currently running Jaws 10 on an XP Home. My SMA entitles me to upgrade
to 11 or 12. Is there a compelling reason why I should do either. From the

previous thread, it sounds like the juryy's out on 12. Is 11 a vast
improvement over 10?

If you're upgrading, then you obviously have Jaws on your computer. So download the latest version to a flash drive with your current machine. You can easily plug that in to your new computer and navigate to Jaws with Narrator.

But how can you install JAWS for the first time from the FS download site on a new computer if you don't have speech to begin with? Obviously, you have to be able to visit the FS download page and locate the JAWS download link, which would require speech or sighted help. Am I missing something?

Gerald,

No, and no.

You can install JAWS from the web version for the very first time on a new
computer. I've done this more than once. The CD is not required, as long as
you know your authorization code. Have you written it somewhere in a very
safe place?

authorization code that has to be entered during the installation?

you an installation CD for the version of JAWS you are upgrading to? If
so,
how long does it take for them to send it? The FS web site doesn't make

from
JAWS 7 to 12, FS's $400 price tag for JAWS 12 from 7 looks cheap.

like
JAWS 7 or 8 would pay the same $1000 for JAWS 12 as somebody who has

Check with FS in the morning, but I suspect your friend would be asked
to
pay full price. I suggest waiting for the release of JAWS 13, which I
believe is anticipated in November. This way if your friend bought an
SMA
at
the same time, s/he would be eligible to upgrade to JAWS 14 without
additional charge. In addition, many listers have reported flaws in
JAWS
12,
possibly because it is more directed to Windows 7 than XP. I'm assuming
someone using JAWS 7 hasn't yet switched to Windows 7. 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.

Ken,

Dave Carlson gave you clear instructions on how to stop JAWS from
verbalizing "bulk" in this context. Yes, it's annoying, but no one's
intentionally doing it to you and the fix is so simple.

As he later says, go ahead and have your ISP reject these messages as spam.
You'll miss a lot of good advice, but maybe for you that 's a small price.

I am a bit distressed about FS's approach to the activation issue, since

that's the name of the game in the softwre design world today.

I used to do it over the website but FS once advised me that since I'm in
the UK, taking in to account time difference, public holidays etc it would
be best to contact my local distributor Sight and Sound. The last time
Sight and Sound went to reset my activations they were told by FS that
they couldn't do it. I then rang FS from the UK and had a debate with the
person on the helpdesk and she reset my activation but only to 1, not 3.

I'm finding so much more that NVDA is working better with than JAWS that
now I really won't be upgrading any further with JAWS after my SMA runs
out. I also intend to take up all my issues with FS.

Hi, all.

I'm between computers here, and have a question about Jaws activation
counts.

I know I could call FS about this, but figured I might get a quicker
answer
from the list.

Regarding activations, does a single-license Jaws user like myself have
a
given number of activations for each separate version of Jaws, or is
the
allotted number of 3 activations constant across all versions of Jaws
collectively?

I am getting a couple of new computers set up for both office and
home,
and

am trying to figure out how best to proceed, while still keeping an
older
Windows XP machine around as a back-up in case that is needed as well.

I have Jaws 12, but a few earlier versions of Jaws that I could
probably
use if neded, if that would give me more activations to work with.

Thanks!

Tom from Michigan

Re: [Bulk] [Bulk] upgrading jaws from 7 to 12

There's the sighted assistant option. Also, a new JAWS purchaser might be a
disgruntled customer of another speech software company and could use that
program to navigate the FS site.

Still, having the FS DVD would be helpful. There's much more on it than you
get when you download the application. And, as I mentioned before, the
authorization code disc is a big help.

Re: Convert Kindle Books Programs!

Matthew Bullis <matthewbullis@...>
 

Hello, I see that someone gave an expired link. Are the tools hard to
find, and do they work well enough with Jaws, or are they specifically
designed with screen reading in mind? My interest for this is to read these
books on the Braille Note, and not necessarily with Jaws on the computer. I
hadn't found any info or recordings about how to convert Kinddle books into
a more accessible format, so I'm glad someone brought the topic back up.
Thanks a lot.

The advantage of the authorization code CD is that inserting it into the

in this issue, i think even though it is late, we can discuss jaws13
features, which FS should add.
according to me, one feature that jaws13 should have is that it should
allow us to select the list of textual errors in a list view, and then
select which one to edit. this becomes easier to edit our preffered

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.

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.
Mike

Subject: Transferring Alt Control J shortcut from Jaws 11 to Jaws 12


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

Peter, as a user I completely agree, but from a marketing point of view
they've got to be seen to be adding new stuff haven't they?

Bhavesh, we can discuss jaws 13 features all we like, but the public beta
will be coming out in the next month or so. Therefore this conversation is
redundant, as fs have already decided what new features in jaws 13 will be.

in this issue, i think even though it is late, we can discuss jaws13
features, which FS should add.
according to me, one feature that jaws13 should have is that it should
allow us to select the list of textual errors in a list view, and then
select which one to edit. this becomes easier to edit our preffered
text.

Re: upgrading jaws from 7 to 12

David Ingram
 

be prepared to spend $750 in order to not only update jaws to version 12, but also include in that the sma. I hope that this helps. If you plan to use windows 7, i'm not sure if the cost is more or may you may already have the pro version of jaws. I'll check on that part of things on Monday when i talk to someone at Freedom Scientific, They will be able to tell me if this is true or not.

Re: [Bulk] upgrading jaws from 7 to 12

Adrian Spratt
 

Gerald,

On your second point, no, I've been using the same authorization code for
several versions and SMAs.

On your first point, I hesitate to guess twice on the list in one day, but
you seem to be assuming someone would be contacting FS for the first time. I
don't recall if the website is set up for initial sales, but I imagine most
first-time purchasers would contact FS by phone or their local distributor.

Re: [Bulk] What to do about XP machines

Hi,
I have JAWS 11, latest build, on both my W7 and XP laptops. 11 works fine on
both operating systems and, yes, I am entitled to use 12 but, no thanks as
yet.
I can't wait to see what 13 will do. If it is no better than 12 then I
honestly think I am done with FS.

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)
