I did all he outlined except the registry edits and Jaws still will not read things like Settings, the Calculator app and other Windows 10 system stuff.

A new Jaws update is about to come out for the public which will contain this new way to access the start menu and it should then read for you.

I can only say that if  you mess with the registry you better know what you are doing especially since I’m not sure whether Jaws would actually read the registry on a system where it doesn’t read settings in which case you would need to use Narrator. If you mess up something in the registry you may very well end up having to reinstall Windows and on any less important system I would have long since done that.

Good afternoon,

 

The only way to solve this issue is the following:

Uninstall completely jaws and shared components.

Uninstall all other fs products installed on your system including all fs voices.

Remove all the freedom scientific folders located on your hard drive.

Remove all freedom scientific entries from the registry.

And reinstall Jaws from scratch and Jaws will work properly on the start menu of all versions of Windows from windows 7 to windows 10.

Best regards

Cedric

Hi Meesha,

 

Yes, unfortunately I have the same issue on one of my work PC’s, I can use any application just fine, but Jaws will not speak in the Windows search box, the start menu, the Settings app, control Panel, Calculator and other Windows applications.

I an on the Jaws beta team and know a few others have also experienced this, but it seems to be rare and an illusive issue to fix, for me this started over a year ago on this one PC and so far no Windows update, Jaws update, Windows repair or Jaws repair/reinstallation has fixed it. I am convinced that unfortunately the only way to fix this would be to reinstall Windows absolutely fresh and from scratch.

I am running the current Beta version of Jaws, but I think the June update already included an alternative way to display the start menu and for me Jaws now reads the start menu on this machine, but still not the Settings app, Windows search box or Calculator.

Open Jaws Settings Centre with Jaws Key + 6 on the number row, make sure default settings are loaded by pressing Control + Shift + D, then type “access” in the search box. Tab once and you should have 3 search results, one of them is the following:

Start menu: Access Out-of-Process not checked

Check that and tab to OK and save the new setting, then try the start menu.

Sorry I can’t provide an actual solution/fix for it, but so far I don’t think there is one except to reinstall Windows 10, then reinstall Jaws, all your applications and put back your data from backup.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Hello all,

I have recently joined this group and find the information shared very informative.

Hope someone can help me with the below query…

I am trying to install JAWS 19 in my laptop with Windows home”  basic after uninstalling JAWS 2018. The problem is JAWS is silent on various items on the PC like – on the start menu, it only speaks “Cortana” and nothing else. Then it is silent when I open system settings folder or open the option to connect to a network.

I have already performed the full recovery couple of times however the problem persists.

Has anybody faced a similar issue? I would really appreciate any insights to resolve this.

Many thanks

moderated Re: I am looking for the following type of laptop

 

I am not Tylor, but I bought an Asus Zenbook with a 15 inch touch screen about two and a half years ago. Obviously you would have to look for whatever is the current model, but I really like this laptop. It was, however, expensive at the time I paid about $2,000 Canadian for it. I assume partially that was because of the 4K touchscreen display, turns out I really never use it, but at the time I was curious to try.
It is a very nice looking laptop as well, at the time it came with an Intel I7 sixth generation CPU, 16Gb of RAM and a 512Gb SSD.
It has 1 USB port on the left which can also charge a device like a phone when the laptop is turned off and two more on the right and there is also a USB-C port and an HDMI port. It has one 3.5mm headphone jack which can also be a microphone jack if you were to use it that way, but I never use a 3.5mm microphone any more so it never bothered me and many laptops nowadays don't have two 3.5mm ports any more.
The other nice thing about this laptop is it's battery life, despite the larger screen it gets about 8 hours which of course depends on what you do.
The keyboard is the traditional US style with two Alt keys, a Windows and FN key on the left and an application key on the right. There is a full numeric pad except that the Jaws/Insert key on the numpad is not double wide as is the case on a full desktop keyboard, instead the Insert key is underneath the number 2 and next to it under the 1 is already the right arrow key. This is the only thing which takes a bit of getting used to and of course there are no gaps between F4 and F5 and F8 and F9, but I don't think I have ever seen that on a laptop. It is a very nice keyboard to type on, but then again one should expect a nice keyboard on a $2,000 laptop.

Regards,
Sieghard

Is the HDMI the only means to connect to an external monitor;

How many USB ports does it have: Are they all USB 3.0;

Does your machine have a US Keyboard layout? Does it have a numeric keypad, If so, can you use the JAWS desktop commands, both with and without the insert/jaws key;

What version of Windows 10 is installed;

How many 3.5 sockets are there, for earphone/speakers, external microphone and line in

Did you buy it on line, if so, will you please post the URL;

Hi,
You'd be in the market for a ggaming laptop, which most likely meets your

I own a Lenovo thinkpad x1 extreme which can hold 2 solid state drives.
Note
that a 1 tb solid state drive can now be found for less than $100 - and
the
speed is so very worth it. So in theory, you could have 2 1 tb drives
installed in there. I'm not sure what your budget is - but it's a very

Hi,

 

About 53 pages and pictures are only 18 in total and all only 1.5 height and width. I was hoping I could at least bring this down to 5-6 Mb but as I’ve tried with 7-zip, not much change to warrant compressing.

Ah.

So it’s probably the jpegs taking up most of the 1+ mb filesize.

In that case, you probably won’t see much more reduction. I don’t know much about 7zip as I never used it extensively, but winrar and the old pkzip and winzip programmes let you choose between different levels of compression. “Normal” was/is usually checked by default. You can set “best” if you want and see if there’s much difference. I don’t know why this option isn’t the default nowadays because it doesn’t take most modern PCs long to zip o r rar up large amounts of data, but that’s still the case in winrar as well. Still, I just have to select the appropriate item in the dialogue box and hit enter and, there you go, it’s done.

 

Still think though that you won’t see much result if the file is full of pictures. How small do you actually want to make this thing?

It depends on the type of file. For stuff that is already compressed, like mp3s or jpgs, you will not see much reduction at all. But for text, the difference should be significant.

I attempted this. I went from 11.8 Mb to 11.3 Mb. Should I not have more reduction or is this it?

Steve:

When we moved to the UK, we brought all our existing keyboards, which are the US Layout. We do not want nor wish to constantly have to change keyboard layouts, between a laptop with a UK keyboard and an external US keyboard, depending on what we need to use at the time.

Another reason I prefer to have a laptop with a US keyboard, is that I have the ability to use both the left and right alt keys to perform functions. The UK keyboard has only one alt key, which is the left alt key because, the right alt key, is configured as a combined alt+ctrl combination.

Hello Steve:

I like having the single and double quote on the same key. On a UK keyboard, the @ sign and double quote are swapped round.

If the ENTER key is vertical, the \key is moved to the top row, to the left of the BACK SPACE key. If the ENTER key is horrizontal, the \ key is above the ENTER key

On a UK keyboard, the \ key, is generally to the left of the letter zed, thus making the left shift key, the same size as an alpha numeric key. I am used to having a wide left shift key.

As I said previously, given time, I could and would get used to the changes but, I just prefer the US keyboard layout.

Hi Rick

 

Well, I have winrar on this computer. I’ve used it for many years on many systems. The programme is not exactly free (last time I checked anyway), but it just nags, and the shell options (IE in the contexxt menu), of which there are quite a few available, don’t give a nag screen. It can work with .zip files and also the .rar compressionf ormat, of course. You get slightly better compression for text with .rar than .zip, but it doesn’t really matter in most modern contexts what format you use. Doing an experiment now on a 490 K html file, using the best compression available, I got a result of 190 K using zip; and 166 k using rar.

For me, this app is completely inaccessible with JFW. I can't do a single tihng with it. I still can't even get past the screen with the Add Account button. nothing makes that disappear even though it told me my Gmail account had been added.

Hi,

 

 

Using the latest version of Jaws with latest Windows10. Is the mail app

that comes with Windows10 at all usable with Jaws? So far, all I've

managed to do is add an account, but now I can't get past the screen

with the Add Account button.

 

 

If it isn't accessible, what other email clients, other than

Thunderbird, can people recommend? I cold use Outlook,b ut that seems

like such overkill when all I want to do is get my email.

 

 

Thanks,

 

~Ann

This is a long time issue and Microsoft is not ready to listen us.

The matter of fact is that whenever I tried to contact with disability answer desk about this problem, they say that I need to reinstall my windows 10.

The matter of fact is that they do not recognize the fact that this issue is an issue of accessibility related.

Yes, People do use it. But in my opinion Thunderbird is much more

accessible. I have tried the mail app and it iscombersome and not nearly

as easy to use as Thunderbird.
