moderated Duplicating JAWS settings on a second computer


Gene Warner
 

I agree with doing it this way, especially after I had the import utility refuse to import any of my settings from an export file. It is now also my preferred way to backup my settings.

Hi,
A better way in my view than using JAWS export/import stuff, is to go to Utilities, then Explore Utilities Folder, then Explore My Settings.
Once in there, Copy Control A and Control C, everything to the clipboard,  and paste it onto a USB stick or another drive.
Next go into the other JAWS machine, go to Utilities, Explore Utilities, Explore My Settings, and paste everything in there that you copied.
This assumes that both versions of JAWS are the same version, but all the scripts and everything should come over.
All the best

Does any one know of good references for copying JAWS settings from one computer to a second computer?  I have some scripts I want to be sure to have, amongst other settings, sounds, and things.

Hi,

 

A better way in my view than using JAWS export/import stuff, is to go to Utilities, then Explore Utilities Folder, then Explore My Settings.

 

Once in there, Copy Control A and Control C, everything to the clipboard,  and paste it onto a USB stick or another drive.

 

Next go into the other JAWS machine, go to Utilities, Explore Utilities, Explore My Settings, and paste everything in there that you copied.

Copying the /enu folder provides a more complete copying of settings --
that's the reason.

It, appropriately enough, is a folder under settings.

It's path is

C:\Users\hp envy\AppData\Roaming\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2022\Settings\enu



It's a good idea to periodically back it up; and certainly before one
attempts to make modifications such as those regularly mentioned on this
and other lists.

BTW, the credit for this suggestion goes to Brian Hartgen who brought it
up in his recent Jaws Muscles course which, of course, can be purchased
through his website.
The neat thing with Brian'scourses is not only you get the audio
presentations but also transcripts in .rtf format which can be quickly
searched when you wish to review something.

They are well worth the money.
Anyway, returning to the question, back up

enu

regularly for a more complete back-up then offered by JAWS itself.

If you navigate to c:\users\<your user name>\appdata\roaming\freedom
scientific\jaws\<jaws version> you will eventually get to a folder
with the name of your language. This folder has everything, so copy
that folder to your other computer. I have had to do this a number of
times -- not to a different computer, but for other reasons, and it
seems to work all the time.
