I am experiencing that also, and since nobody mentioned it on this list, I have held off downloading it.  Does someone know if this is legit?  I thought 2019 had a new version very recently that I had installed, and this update is coming up close on its heels.  In the past, that has meant JAWS found some flaws after they released an update, and the new update is to correct that.  Anyone know?

Subject: Is there really a new JAWS update?

 

Hi!

 

For the past couple of days, I have been getting a notification about a new JAWS update.  Presently, I am using JAWS 2019.  Is this true?  Usually, on this list there is a posting about “New JAWS Update and What’s New,” but I have not seen that yet.  So, I am wondering if this notification I am getting is real - or if it is some sort of malicious virus?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Seems like you could boot the Windows cd and then run the utility, if
its a command line or something narrator could see.

That is only true if you are actually booted into Windows 10, which you are not when using the password reset tools that have been discussed here.  They are bootable programs (for the most part) or utilities that are run under WinPE to operate on an offline instance of Windows 10.

I only have Jaws 2018, 2019, and 2020 and there is no file on my hard drive called jfwkill.exe.

So, I think things have changed enough that the JFWkill.exe is no longer used.

Hi Jaffar,

 

The steps below are for an older version of Jaws, but hopefully they'll give you a shove in the right direction:

 

hello;

 

if your using jaws15,
you will find the jaws kill at:

 

"C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\Runtime JAWS\15.0\JFWKill.exe"

 

if you really need to you could create shortcut to desktop,

 

the windows-key+insert-key+f4=kil/unload jaws from memory.

 

Desktop Icon Steps:

hello;

if your wanting to create shortcut fror,

"C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\Runtime JAWS\15.0\JFWKill.exe"

1, desktop;

2, ctrl+spacebar making sure there is no icon selected,

3, press applications key, or shift f10,

up or down arrow and enter on,
new sub-menu,

4, arrow and enter on, new shortcut,

your now being asked,

you will see,

you can change this to killjaws, or whatever you wish, now tab finish, press

Getting the entire list of add-ons to show can be somewhat tricky. The filter combo box is sometimes difficult to get to take effect. It may require you hit the space bar a couple of times on the

Hi Jaffar,
 
The steps below are for an older version of Jaws, but hopefully they'll give you a shove in the right direction:
 
hello;
 
if your using jaws15,
you will find the jaws kill at:
 
"C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\Runtime JAWS\15.0\JFWKill.exe"
 
if you really need to you could create shortcut to desktop,
 
the windows-key+insert-key+f4=kil/unload jaws from memory.
 
Desktop Icon Steps:
hello;

if your wanting to create shortcut fror,

"C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\Runtime JAWS\15.0\JFWKill.exe"

1, desktop;

2, ctrl+spacebar making sure there is no icon selected,

3, press applications key, or shift f10,

up or down arrow and enter on,
new sub-menu,

4, arrow and enter on, new shortcut,

your now being asked,
Type the location of the item:
here you would type in:

"C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\Runtime JAWS\15.0\JFWKill.exe"

5, tab next enter,

here your being asked to give the shortcut a name,
you will see,
"C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\Runtime JAWS\15.0\JFWKill.exe"
you can change this to killjaws, or whatever you wish, now tab finish, press
enter.

heck you could even create an hotkey if your little heart desires.

Ann:
Thanks, I will try this sometime.
The key combinations can be difficult sometimes.

alternatively:

1. Go to the row with your headers.
2. Press alt+m, then m. JAWS will say "define name, dot dot dot."
3. Press enter to get into the edit field.
4. To have JAWS speak row titles only, type "rowtitle" and press enter.
5. To have JAWS speak column titles only, type "columntitle" and press enter.
6. To have JAWS speak both row and column titles, type "title".

These are Word commands interpreted by JAWS, so if you save the workbook and move it, the titles move too. If you use save-as to create another worksheet, the titles move too. More detailed instructions are available in the JAWS training materials.

Well, jaws key + f4 *should* kill all processes related to JAWS, but, if things are not working right -- it doesn't always.
You could set up a key to do this if you wanted using taskill or something, I guess.
