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

Adrian Spratt
 

Tom,

I've always found it advantageous to re-create this shortcut for any new
version. Like many JAWS users, I have a few versions on my system because
later ones broke what previously worked. Each time I install a new version
(i.e., 10, 11, 12), I assign the j shortcut to it and reassign other
shortcuts to older versions.

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

What I think would be best for them to do, cell the dongles with the same
price as the ILM and stop the ILM method.
The dongle one is easier in my own opinion.

In my case I haven't had as many activations as FS claims. I only use JAWS
on both of my PCs and no where else. The only times I've had activations has
been when I've restored my PC back and fitted new hardware. Some of the
times I've restored my PC back has been due to issues with JAWS and trying
to resolve them. A more sensible approach from FS would be to have JAWS send
once a day a message to FS giving the IP address of the computer then they
would be able to see that it was being used in the location it was intended
for and wouldn't be an issue. For those who don't want FS to have that
information they can just remain as they are.

We pay a lot of money for the software to say the least. I appreciate FS
want to protect themselves from piracy but I am sure that such a strict
policy on activations is what has caused some to go down the route of piracy
(mine is a fully paid for version and I do not condone piracy in the
slightest).

I know I could call FS about this, but figured I might get a quicker

Regarding activations, does a single-license Jaws user like myself

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

I have Jaws 12, but a few earlier versions of Jaws that I could

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

Mike & Barbara In Arcadia <mb69mach1@...>
 

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.
Mike

pearchising a dongle instead of an ILM license?
I have a dongle because this is the only option with the Hebrew version of
JFW in Israel but I'm not limited to activations and the dongle could be
used with any JAWS version/language.
I can transfer the dongle freely from one computer to the other without
anything.

Anyone else having trouble with Thunderbird now?

nikkib@mbrowncc.com <nikkib@...>
 

Hi everyone,

I have been using Thunderbird with JAWS 12 for a while and it was working fine up until one of the more recent Thunderbird updates. Now, when I am in my inbox, JAWS will not read the message descriptions to me. (who it's from, the subject, etc.). Instead, all it will read is the header over the list of e-mails. It says something like"starred, attachment, subject, read, status, date). It says this over and over as I scroll up and down through the list of messages in my inbox. I have to switch to NVDA to be able to accurately hear what e-mail I have.

Does anyone else know what might be wrong and how I can fix it?

Thanks!
Nikki B.

Dave Carlson gave you clear instructions on how to stop JAWS from

As he later says, go ahead and have your ISP reject these messages as spam.

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!

Hello again, everyone.

I successfully convinced the folks at FS to re-set my activation count back
to 3, so it looks like I am now all set in that regard.

However, I have one more question about the activation process:

If I upgrade from Jaws 11 to Jaws 12 on a computer that already has Jaws 11,
does the upgrade count against my number of available activations? In other
words, each time I upgrade from Jaws 11 to 12, do I loose an activation?

Re: Question on activation count

Peter Holdstock <peterholdstock@...>
 

In my case I haven't had as many activations as FS claims. I only use JAWS on both of my PCs and no where else. The only times I've had activations has been when I've restored my PC back and fitted new hardware. Some of the times I've restored my PC back has been due to issues with JAWS and trying to resolve them. A more sensible approach from FS would be to have JAWS send once a day a message to FS giving the IP address of the computer then they would be able to see that it was being used in the location it was intended for and wouldn't be an issue. For those who don't want FS to have that information they can just remain as they are.

We pay a lot of money for the software to say the least. I appreciate FS want to protect themselves from piracy but I am sure that such a strict policy on activations is what has caused some to go down the route of piracy (mine is a fully paid for version and I do not condone piracy in the slightest).

Transferring Alt Control J shortcut from Jaws 11 to Jaws 12

Tom Behler
 

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.

they get that figure from and very annoying. I'm in the process of
raising it as a complaint. They tried to sell me a dongle licence
instead.

They are nice, but don't ask more than once every few months. If you're
down
to 1 they will sometimes bump you back up to 3. But no more than 3.

That's what I thought, so my next question is "How liberal is FS when
it
comes to getting your activation count re-set if needed?

Subject: Question on activation count

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

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.

Well, Peter, I just completed the activation re-set form, so will
hopefully learn the outcome soon.

I am a bit distressed about FS's approach to the activation issue, since
we
all paid good money for various versions of Jaws over the years, but I
guess
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.

Are you trying to re-set your activation count via the web site, or over

I'm about to embark on this process myself, out of necessity, so a
curious
mind wants to know. (smile)

Not much to do with Jaws, but Host Gator are fair, comprehensive and very large.

I have a smaller company building, maintaining and hosting my site though, Evratech Industries. You can check out their Website at
