You know the weird thing? I have a list of windows hot keys that states Windows key + x goes to the mobility Center. It doesn't. When I went there on my lap top JAWS didn't read it well at all. On the desk top I don't have the media/function key options.

keyboard. I suspect that this is something unique to your hardware or
installed keyboard drivers.

The mobile center choices maybe don't say 'function keys'. There is
a choice between multi-media, which was the default on my lap top,
and something else. the something else was the right choice.

Good luck!

I was able to change the performance of the function keys. It was

Hello there;

I'm assuming your using IE9,
And I'm further assuming your using,

www.google.com

well,
when you enter on the IE icon, and you then land on the google home page,
if you press e=edit,
and arrow down 2 times,
you will see the I'm feeling lucky button,
you won't find this by tabbing,
well, you would eventually get to that button, but why tab when it's not
necessary?

Hello,
I solved one problem and found a basic solution to another:
for the F-keys and the alt key, you need to:
start the computer and tap the f10 key repeatedly till a menu pops up. Next
get a sighted person to get you to the right box and hit f9 to choose the
'keys' button from being checked (I'm not sure the exact name, but it is the
only button with the words Keys on it).
Hit f10 to save and everything is back to normal.

I still do not see the search or I'm feeling Lucky button on Google though.
I had a sighted person look to see if the buttons were on the page and he
said they were where they were supposed to be, but when Jaws tabs from the
search box it says nothing. It says tab and that's it. It gives the beep
that it's out of forms mode, but it doesn't speech the buttons at all.
Any ideas on how I can make it speek? Should I downgrade my IE?

Yeh it will be the same thing. Just don't tick the box to remove the driver if it's available. What laptop do you have as there will likely be a key to disable it. I'm assuming you are referring to the touchpad or joystick thing actually on the keyboard rather than a seperate mouse?

Hi Peter
I was not able to find a disable choice. If I get desperate, I could choose
the uninstall option.
If I choose the unstall option, would I then be given the disable option?

This is a Dell and it may be the way they set the driver.

I can go to the Control Panel and to Mouse and turn it off, but Windows 7
will fix this and turn it back on.

Hi, you will be able to disabled the mouse using Device Manager. Just type
in device manager on the start menu. Once it's up tab then go down the list
to mice and other pointing devices and expand it. Then go to the mice
devices and press the applications key. Then go to disable. Note that will
disable the mouse but won't uninstall it. Don't tick the box if it's present

offering to uninstall the driver though as that will delete the driver.

I have a Dell laptop and it has no way to turn off the monitor unless I hook
it to an external monitor.
But I can turn the brightness down very low to save battery life. This is
done by holding down the Function Key and pressing the down arrow.
If I need my wife to bail me out of trouble, I hold down the Function Key
and press the up arrow to restore the brightness.

My wife has a Sony Laptop and it has a switch to turn off the monitor, and
she does not need this feature.

What I would like to see is a feature to turn off the mouse.

Hello,
That works marvelously! It's not the same, but the small icons make things

I think it was the fact that I had a 32 bit Jaws on a 64 bit computer that
was giving me all the big problems.
Does anyone know if there is a way to disable the mute button on Windows 7?
For some reason they have a mute button up on the top of the keyboard, but
they don't have a button to turn off the monitor. That is just strange...

One thing you can do with the CTRL panel once you are in it Is navigate to
the search with CTRL E, tab once until you hear category button and press
space bar. Once the context menu is up arrow up or down and enter on large
icons or small icons.
Then you can just use letter navigation from there to get to the various
different items in the CTRL panel instead of tabbing around.
If this isn't what you are referring to with the "classic view" of the CTRL
panel I will just show myself the door lol.

Hello,
I have disabled the touchpad and all touch things on my computer. I have set
everything I could find to work best with Jaws.
I could not find how to make the control panel Classic view. What I mean by
Classic view is Icons instead of links. In every version up to windows 7
(including Vista) there is a setting you can toggle that will make Control
Panel Icons in rows that you can arrow through. With this windows 7 I'm
forced to hit tab to navigate through a long list of links. This is not
effective in any shape or form.
I perhaps think that there might be a Windows 7 64 bit and Windows 7 32 bit,
but on my CD I saw no double installation. I did see a difference on the
website. Right after I sent this email I Installed the Jaws 11 off FS's
Website and restarted my computer a multitude of times. Once everything
looked to be in order I opened up IE and Jaws promptly Crashed. My computer
is restarting as I'm typing.

I called FS this morning to ask them to give me another activation and I
asked them if there was anything I needed to know to make Jaws work on a
Windows 7 computer as on other versions of windows there are a few things
you need to do to make Jaws run optimally. I was told that Jaws ran on
Windows 7 no problem.

Needless to say this is the most difficulty in installing Jaws I've ever
had...
If it is truly necessary, I can bug DOR to buy me Jaws 13, but I was waiting
to do that till the Summer when I will have lots of free time to be on the
phone.
Thank you,

Brandon,

Forget about Control Panel in Classic View. There are many once-familiar
dialogs that will look different from XP.

Don't think Home vs. Professional has anything to do with it, unless you
have a non-professional version of JAWS on a professional operating system.

Have no idea about your line breaks, except that you might want to make sure
you have IE maximized.

What do you mean by "out of the box" with regard to Freedom Scientific?

I didn't have to fiddle with anything when I got my Windows 7 machine and
JAWS 12 installed.

Do you perhaps have a touchpad or a touch stick that's getting in your way
when you're working? I turned both mine off to prevent accidental movement
of the cursor.

You have JAWS 11 and I'm not sure that JAWS 11 has all the bugs worked out
with regard Windows Live Mail.

Hello,
I just got a Windows 7 computer and I'm having some difficulties finding the
optimal settings to set my computer at.
I was told by FS that it came out of the box perfectly configured. I know
this is wrong because on webpages I see 10 line breaks where there should
only be 1 or 2, I'm not hearing characters when I erase them in some text
boxes, when I erase Jaws says the character that's ahead and not the one
it's supposed to be erasing, while I'm typing this message in Windows Live
Mail my Jaws curser is jumping to the desktop at random times, On the HP
solution center everything is unlabeled, Jaws is not reading some of the
notification windows that pop up, the F keys don't work except in key
combinations, I can't seem to get the Control Panel in Classic view, Jaws
doesn't seem to want to start up when I turn on the computer. These are what
I've found after the second hour with this darn computer!
I'm using Jaws 11 with Windows 7, an HP computer.
Perhaps the problem is that the CD I installed is home and not professional.
Is there a way to tell?
So far it looks like people saying Windows 7 being better is all a myth and
I should just
go back to my Vista machine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you,

I was able to change the performance of the function keys. It was
set on multi media and I changed it to standard.

Re: [Bulk] Optimal Settings for Jaws on a Windows 7 Computer?

Brandon Keith Biggs <brandonboy13@...>
 

Hello,
In my HP Windows mobility center it doesn't have that option.
I've googled turning off performance of the function keys on an HP windows 7 Laptop, but no one seems to have the problem of needing F10 to get to the menu bar or having F11 to get to full screen. I couldn't find anything.
My alt button doesn't work and Google doesn't display a search or I'm feeling Lucky button or I'd be fine.
Is this just a problem with HP computers?
Thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs

Re: [Bulk] Optimal Settings for Jaws on a Windows 7 Computer?

Brandon Keith Biggs <brandonboy13@...>
 

Hello,
There are a couple problems that I've just pinpointed:
First the F-Keys are aliased to do something else. For example f12 is mute, f11 is turn off the internet, f10 is volume up and f9 is volume down.
If I need to do the F keys I have to hit the function key.
Does anyone know if there is any way to make the F-keys original functions as default and the volume up and down as the function key strokes?

I have not been able to find the Google search button or I'm feeling lucky on Google's webpage on the windows 7 yet. Is it the latest IE? And yes I do have Google instant turned off.
Thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs

I have a Dell laptop and it has no way to turn off the monitor unless I hook
it to an external monitor.
But I can turn the brightness down very low to save battery life. This is
done by holding down the Function Key and pressing the down arrow.
If I need my wife to bail me out of trouble, I hold down the Function Key
and press the up arrow to restore the brightness.

My wife has a Sony Laptop and it has a switch to turn off the monitor, and
she does not need this feature.

What I would like to see is a feature to turn off the mouse.

For some reason they have a mute button up on the top of the keyboard, but

One thing you can do with the CTRL panel once you are in it Is navigate to
the search with CTRL E, tab once until you hear category button and press
space bar. Once the context menu is up arrow up or down and enter on large
icons or small icons.
Then you can just use letter navigation from there to get to the various
different items in the CTRL panel instead of tabbing around.
If this isn't what you are referring to with the "classic view" of the CTRL
panel I will just show myself the door lol.

Hello,
I have disabled the touchpad and all touch things on my computer. I have set
everything I could find to work best with Jaws.
I could not find how to make the control panel Classic view. What I mean by
Classic view is Icons instead of links. In every version up to windows 7
(including Vista) there is a setting you can toggle that will make Control
Panel Icons in rows that you can arrow through. With this windows 7 I'm
forced to hit tab to navigate through a long list of links. This is not
effective in any shape or form.
I perhaps think that there might be a Windows 7 64 bit and Windows 7 32 bit,
but on my CD I saw no double installation. I did see a difference on the
website. Right after I sent this email I Installed the Jaws 11 off FS's
Website and restarted my computer a multitude of times. Once everything
looked to be in order I opened up IE and Jaws promptly Crashed. My computer
is restarting as I'm typing.

I called FS this morning to ask them to give me another activation and I
asked them if there was anything I needed to know to make Jaws work on a
Windows 7 computer as on other versions of windows there are a few things
you need to do to make Jaws run optimally. I was told that Jaws ran on
Windows 7 no problem.

Needless to say this is the most difficulty in installing Jaws I've ever
had...
If it is truly necessary, I can bug DOR to buy me Jaws 13, but I was waiting
to do that till the Summer when I will have lots of free time to be on the
phone.

Brandon,

Forget about Control Panel in Classic View. There are many once-familiar
dialogs that will look different from XP.

Don't think Home vs. Professional has anything to do with it, unless you
have a non-professional version of JAWS on a professional operating system.

Have no idea about your line breaks, except that you might want to make sure
you have IE maximized.

What do you mean by "out of the box" with regard to Freedom Scientific?

I didn't have to fiddle with anything when I got my Windows 7 machine and
JAWS 12 installed.

Do you perhaps have a touchpad or a touch stick that's getting in your way
when you're working? I turned both mine off to prevent accidental movement
of the cursor.

You have JAWS 11 and I'm not sure that JAWS 11 has all the bugs worked out
with regard Windows Live Mail.

I was told by FS that it came out of the box perfectly configured. I know
this is wrong because on webpages I see 10 line breaks where there should

it's supposed to be erasing, while I'm typing this message in Windows Live

doesn't seem to want to start up when I turn on the computer. These are what
I've found after the second hour with this darn computer!
I'm using Jaws 11 with Windows 7, an HP computer.
Perhaps the problem is that the CD I installed is home and not professional.
Is there a way to tell?
So far it looks like people saying Windows 7 being better is all a myth and

go back to my Vista machine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: [Bulk] [Bulk] Turning off the announcement of volume changeson a laptop.

Settings Center is only Jaws 12 and 13. But I did go to Configuration Manager and turn off balloon tips, tooltips, and smart help messages, but no luck.

Go to the Settings Center and then verbosity. For the verbosity you have set
(beginner, intermediate, or advanced) uncheck tool tips, help balloons, and
help messages. Save and then see if it still speaks.

I have a Lenovo T400 and JFW 11. In some programs, when I use the up and

increase
the volume, Jaws says: 2, 3, 4, etc. Anyone know how I can shut this off

I can change the volume without Jaws announcing each change? I tried
removing the volume icon from the taskbar. And FS tech support had no

Hi Peter
I was not able to find a disable choice. If I get desperate, I could choose
the uninstall option.
If I choose the unstall option, would I then be given the disable option?

This is a Dell and it may be the way they set the driver.

I can go to the Control Panel and to Mouse and turn it off, but Windows 7
will fix this and turn it back on.

Hi, you will be able to disabled the mouse using Device Manager. Just type
in device manager on the start menu. Once it's up tab then go down the list

I have a Dell laptop and it has no way to turn off the monitor unless I hook
it to an external monitor.
But I can turn the brightness down very low to save battery life. This is
done by holding down the Function Key and pressing the down arrow.
If I need my wife to bail me out of trouble, I hold down the Function Key
and press the up arrow to restore the brightness.

My wife has a Sony Laptop and it has a switch to turn off the monitor, and
she does not need this feature.

What I would like to see is a feature to turn off the mouse.

Hello,
That works marvelously! It's not the same, but the small icons make things

I think it was the fact that I had a 32 bit Jaws on a 64 bit computer that
was giving me all the big problems.
Does anyone know if there is a way to disable the mute button on Windows 7?
For some reason they have a mute button up on the top of the keyboard, but
they don't have a button to turn off the monitor. That is just strange...

One thing you can do with the CTRL panel once you are in it Is navigate to
the search with CTRL E, tab once until you hear category button and press
space bar. Once the context menu is up arrow up or down and enter on large
icons or small icons.
Then you can just use letter navigation from there to get to the various
different items in the CTRL panel instead of tabbing around.
If this isn't what you are referring to with the "classic view" of the CTRL
panel I will just show myself the door lol.

Hello,
I have disabled the touchpad and all touch things on my computer. I have set
everything I could find to work best with Jaws.
I could not find how to make the control panel Classic view. What I mean by
Classic view is Icons instead of links. In every version up to windows 7
(including Vista) there is a setting you can toggle that will make Control
Panel Icons in rows that you can arrow through. With this windows 7 I'm
forced to hit tab to navigate through a long list of links. This is not
effective in any shape or form.
I perhaps think that there might be a Windows 7 64 bit and Windows 7 32 bit,
but on my CD I saw no double installation. I did see a difference on the
website. Right after I sent this email I Installed the Jaws 11 off FS's
Website and restarted my computer a multitude of times. Once everything
looked to be in order I opened up IE and Jaws promptly Crashed. My computer
is restarting as I'm typing.

I called FS this morning to ask them to give me another activation and I
asked them if there was anything I needed to know to make Jaws work on a
Windows 7 computer as on other versions of windows there are a few things
you need to do to make Jaws run optimally. I was told that Jaws ran on
Windows 7 no problem.

Needless to say this is the most difficulty in installing Jaws I've ever
had...
If it is truly necessary, I can bug DOR to buy me Jaws 13, but I was waiting
to do that till the Summer when I will have lots of free time to be on the
phone.

Brandon,

Forget about Control Panel in Classic View. There are many once-familiar
dialogs that will look different from XP.

Don't think Home vs. Professional has anything to do with it, unless you
have a non-professional version of JAWS on a professional operating system.

Have no idea about your line breaks, except that you might want to make sure
you have IE maximized.

What do you mean by "out of the box" with regard to Freedom Scientific?

I didn't have to fiddle with anything when I got my Windows 7 machine and
JAWS 12 installed.

Do you perhaps have a touchpad or a touch stick that's getting in your way
when you're working? I turned both mine off to prevent accidental movement
of the cursor.

You have JAWS 11 and I'm not sure that JAWS 11 has all the bugs worked out
with regard Windows Live Mail.

Dave,

As a test, does it act differently whether you have speech set to all,
highlighted, or none? Let me know.

I have a Lenovo T400 and JFW 11. In some programs, when I use the up and
down volume buttons on the laptop, jaws speaks the number. So if I increase
the volume, Jaws says: 2, 3, 4, etc. Anyone know how I can shut this off so
I can change the volume without Jaws announcing each change? I tried
removing the volume icon from the taskbar. And FS tech support had no ideas.
