If you're spending money for new hardware, treat it to some new software--upgrade your JAWS, or learn NVDA. Windows 7 is so no more.

Yeah, I have this problem more with 2019 than I did with 2018.
Maybe that problem came with the 2018 update that was fairly recent?

Dear all,
I use JAWS 2018 on a Win 10 machine. I am pissed off due to the following issues.
1. When Jaws is on, I can often use "g". While I know that there is some shortcut Windows + g for game bar: I continually have to turn that off. Any way to get rid of it permanently?
2. Jaws often loses focus while I am on the net. I have to press Alt + Tab twice to get the focus back.

Eagerly await solutions for these.

Thanks

Hi Rick,
Windows 10 allows one to boot up Narrator during setup, but personally, I'd still use the talking WinPe for Windows 10 at:
http://opopanax.net/download/
But I'm sure there is still the ability to use the unintended install txt file for Windows 10.

Hey all,

I've gone and set up the install with the USB disk. I do not have a large
enough DVD to put Windows 10 on so to be able to boot from the dvd drive.
When the boot begins, I go into the system with F12 and I go down to the USB
drive to boot from and I continuously am told no drive found. Any/All ideas
appreciated.

Hello Steve:

This is completely and utterly untrue.

I have 3 computers which are running Windows 7, and I am getting updates to the operating system, regulare as clockwork.

I do not doubt, that I will continue to do so, until Microsoft ends support for Windows 7, in January of next year. Even then,there will be core system updates, which are not only essential to Windows 10, but also are essential and compatible to previous versions of their operating systems, and as such they will more than likely, be made available as updates to those operating systems.

Windows seven is also about to go out of support so by January, there won't
be any more security updates. Your going to need to either get the
subscription if you want to stick with jaws or switch to NVDA. Oh, you'll be
able to use windows seven after it's no longer supported but it could leave
you more open to attacks, not to mention, fewer aps will support it either
when they are updated. I should mention you could get another SmA but that
would require purchasing the upgrade then the sma so the subscription would
probably be best.

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

Hi all. Last night, I decided to play around with Chromevox. although I got it going and was able to configure options, no hotkey actually unloads it from running all the time with Chrome. For now, I've disabled the extension, but that seems self-defeating, since I was hoping to be able to unload whichever screen reader I was using and use Chromevox on the fly. Is this possible?

Yes. Once you successfully boot from a USB or DVD drive, you can run Narrator, which will talk you through the entire installation. The trick is booting to the DVD or USB drive without speech. On my system, I've memorized that F12 opens the boot menu and five down-arrow presses lands me on the DVD boot option. Your system will probably vary depending on its configuration. It would be best to confirm this part of the process with sighted assistance.

Well, I can see that.

How much do you use Jaws then? You could get by with NVDA or even Narrator for that matter unless you are doing things that Jaws scripts are needed for.

But, if it works for you; just ignore those of us who use Windows 10 and have the latest Jaws.

Best of luck,

Richard

First, it is pointless to install Windows 7 on a new machine since it is almost at the end of its life cycle.
If you are set on Windows 7, the Narrator keystroke is not control+windows+enter, that is the Windows 10 keystroke.
I'm not entirely sure what the Windows 7 command is but it could be Windows+Enter.
Or, you could call Microsoft Accessibility at 800-936-5900 and find out for sure or just Google it.

The new windows 10 is so much better and looks much like Windows 7, and Narrator is vastly improved in Windows 10 and will only get better after the fall update.

I know on two new Windows 10 machines I have worked with in the last year, Cortana came up talking and I did not need any sighted assistance to set it up.
When the time came, Cortana said if you need a screen reader to finish setup hit control+windows+enter.

I have no idea on a home built machine if Windows 10 will behave that way.

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.

Hi,
Sorry I can't help with the first but I can tell you that 2018 did have a lot of trouble with losing focus. A JAWS re boot at times fixed the problem for a time. Tabbing away and coming back is annoying but works. So far the issue is much less, if at all, in 2019. Yes, Freedom was aware of the issue.

Subject: Irritating problems with JAWS 2018

Dear all,
I use JAWS 2018 on a Win 10 machine. I am pissed off due to the following issues.
1. When Jaws is on, I can often use "g". While I know that there is some shortcut Windows + g for game bar: I continually have to turn that off. Any way to get rid of it permanently?
2. Jaws often loses focus while I am on the net. I have to press Alt + Tab twice to get the focus back.

Eagerly await solutions for these.

Thanks
Best
Turab

Yes, after the cd gbgoots up, you should be able to invoke narrator by
hitting control-windows-enter on most sound cards.

Hi all,

Is it possible to install Windows 10 into/onto a new not previously used hard drive, without sighted assistance?

Thank you,
