The short answer is Yes, in fact, you have much more control over sound output in Windows 10 than in Windows 7, but it would most likely be easiest to make the USB device your default and then go to Jaws Settings > Utilities > Soundcard and tell Jaws to play on the built-in speakers.

I beg to differ with you. Both Microsoft Disability desk and another sighted user at a computer documented that both the sound drivers and the registry entries were lost. The man at the computer store had to manually restore the registry entries.

1. Use the Up Arrow while in the main Winamp Window.

2. Check your Volume mixer from the System Tray, and if there is a Winamp volume button, click it. You will only see this volume button if Winamp is currently open. Audio is not required to be playing while looking for the Winamp volume button.

Re: Jaws 2019 Auth Code?

 

You should have received a Jaws 2019 DVD at some point, your authorization code would be on the sleeve of that DVD in braille.

If you don’t have that any more you probably have to call Freedom Scientific, tell them you don’t have the authorization code any more and I assume after proper identification they would provide it to you. I have had mine written down in a little file on my computer where I keep such things for so long that I don’t even remember any more when I did this and if I do a new install I just open said Notepad file, copy it to the clibboard and paste it in the appropriate place during the authorization.

Re: Unable to quit JAWS using Insert+F4

 

Keep in mind that if you ever want to restart Jaws you can press Jaws Key + Windows Key + F4. This unloads Jaws and reloads it, it's usually meant for if Jaws crashes and doesn't recover on its own.

You can simply restart Jaws by shutting it down with Jaws Key + F4 and then restart it by making sure you press Windows Key + M to minimize to the desktop, then "J" to go to the Jaws icon or of course you can press Control
+ Shift + J or whatever other shortcut key you may have set up for Jaws.
After Jaws restarts it will run from the system tray.

1. Just press JAWS key plus J.
2. Press the ALT key.
3. If it says JAWS Options, press ENTER.
4. If it then says Basics, press ENTER again.
5. TAB five times, and make sure Run JAWS from System Tray is checked, by using the Space Bar.
6. TAB another five times, and press Space Bar on the OK button.
7. Now restart the computer. When JAWS comes up, it will now be running in the system tray.

Naturally, we all want Jaws to be as effective and problem free as possible.
So, Any advice will be appreciated.

Are you not running Jaws from the system tray? If doing an insert/jaws key plus J doesn't put you in to the Jaws options, that is telling you that all you need to do is put Jaws in to the system tray. Then, insert/Jaws F4 will work the way you want it to.

If you can alt tab to the Jaws options menu, then go in to basics and tab to run Jaws in the system tray and check that check box.

Good luck,

Hi all,

I hope this Email finds you all in good spirit.

My friend has recently purchased a laptop equipped with Windows10.
Since he is not that tech savvy, he wanted me to install his prefered
apps and do all the necessary settings according to his liking. I
installed JAWS and NVDA successfully; however, I was unable to perform
the Insert+F4 command to quit JAWS by any means, even when setting
keyboard layout to laptop. As I hit Caps lock+F4, JAWS speaks
"Windows+P" and opens a projection listbox with 4 options like,
"Computer only," "Extend" etc. I tried the same via an external USB
keyboard, but to no avail. Besides, Application key for bringing up a
context menu is non-functional, I can easily launch the same with
Shift+F10 though. Now, it really makes me wonder why such a strange is
happening. Your tips and tricks will be highly appreciated.

Hi,
Sorry for delay in response. When in the system tray I have found that
JAWS hesitates when I request a menu item. I do not notice the hesitation when in the task bar. I realize that this takes space in the bar but for me it has been better. Perhaps latest version has improved tray performance.

Greetings,

Now, you got me curious. FS use to always tell users of Jaws that they will have a better experience if they run Jaws from the system tray. What kind of problems do you run in to if it is run from the system tray.

Naturally, we all want Jaws to be as effective and problem free as possible.
So, Any advice will be appreciated.

Cheers,

James B

Hi,
JAWS in the system tray does not always respond well. Best practice in my thought is to quit JAWS with JAWS key and F4.

Are you not running Jaws from the system tray? If doing an insert/jaws key plus J doesn't put you in to the Jaws options, that is telling you that all you need to do is put Jaws in to the system tray. Then, insert/Jaws F4 will work the way you want it to.

If you can alt tab to the Jaws options menu, then go in to basics and tab to run Jaws in the system tray and check that check box.

Good luck,

James B

Hi,

I am using latest 2019 JAWS and Windows 10. Working for me... surely must be a setting. Has all been accomplished with obtaining authorization? I am not sure if this works with laptop setting Vs desktop.

Yes, I have already tested this one and it works as expected. I just wanted
Insert+F4 command to somehow work, but no success so far.

Hi Surendra,

When you alt tab to the JAWS screen/application, try alt F4 and see if
you get the shut down command.

Hi all,

I hope this Email finds you all in good spirit.

My friend has recently purchased a laptop equipped with Windows10.
Since he is not that tech savvy, he wanted me to install his prefered
apps and do all the necessary settings according to his liking. I
installed JAWS and NVDA successfully; however, I was unable to perform
the Insert+F4 command to quit JAWS by any means, even when setting
keyboard layout to laptop. As I hit Caps lock+F4, JAWS speaks
"Windows+P" and opens a projection listbox with 4 options like,
"Computer only," "Extend" etc. I tried the same via an external USB
keyboard, but to no avail. Besides, Application key for bringing up a
context menu is non-functional, I can easily launch the same with
Shift+F10 though. Now, it really makes me wonder why such a strange is
happening. Your tips and tricks will be highly appreciated.
