Are you using the latest version of the program that Carlos modified?  My recollection is that one or more earlier versions had the bug you are describing.

Hi all,

I am running windows ten, and jaws 18. I use virtual recorder to record my show on the global voice, but it isn’t doing what I want it to do. In the virtual recorder program, you can check sound card, which lets you use your microphone, . the second choice is both, which is supposed to let you use your microphone, plus what you hear, which means if you are recording a music file, you should hear that also. Only trouble is, that doesn’t work in windows ten apparently. If someone is using virtual recorder, can you help me here? I want to be able to use the choice that says both. Any ideas on how to fix this?

One more thing. When trying to record music, the music is always too loud. The volume setting for the microphone are great, but I can’t get music to sound right. Sorry for the long winded email. Jim

Re: Frustrated with jaws on my new windows 10 computer

Hi Keith,

 

Well yes, McAfee has been known to slow some computers down. Since this is a new computer, have you considered that you may be getting a lot of Windows updates? Typically, no matter how recently you first set up a new computer, it must update itself, and this process can also slow it down considerable if the updates are running while you are trying to use the machine. You can try to negate this problem by going to Windows updates under Settings, Control + I, and clicking on the “Check for updates” button and manually updating the system while you are not planning to use it for other things.

 

As far as your email problems, I do not see where you state which email client or service you are using. If you could shed a little light on this, someone will comment on this. I am using Outlook 2016, and I have no problems with the issue that you are describing.

 

The help pages for Jaws 2018 are just where they have been for earlier versions of the program, under the Help menu.      It is a typically  structured Help document where you scroll down through the available topics and then use the F6 key to open that topic to be able to read the material. The Escape or the F6 key is used to close a topic and return you to the previous screen.

 

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

 

Michael

Hello everyone, me again.  I have about had it with jaws.  I am a former window eyes user and have a netbook with xp on it and have a new laptop  running windows 10 and jaws (current version). 

 

I am absolutely lost in windows 10 with jaws.  I have saved several emails which I wish to respond to using the windows 10 machine, but whereas on the xp machine using window eyes, I can find where I am to exit browse mode and type my name or email address or address into the edit field, this is not stated by jaws.  I do not know if I am filling the email out correctly or not.  And when I think I am on a link or what not, then I hit enter on the link and the page refreshes, but nothing has changed.

 

Also in emails, on my xp machine, I can hit tab and it will jump to various links in the email.  It does not seem so in windows 10 mail using jaws.  Hitting tab just takes me down a bit in the email.

 

I have checked the jaws disk I got when I "ported" over from windows xp when FS bought AI squared and there is no tutorial on the disk.  So, may I ask, how in the world does anyone learn how to use jaws?  Never mind the total changes to the layout and useage  of window 10 from xp.

 

There are thinks from emails i would like to interact with but on my xp machine, the pages are suddenly not able to be found.

 

Not to mention that my new laptop seems much much slower than my xp machine which is running a 1 Gh processor with 1 gig of ram.  There are huge lags from when I type something on the keyboard  to when jaws actually voices the command I sent to it on my windows 10 computer.

 

can something like Mcavy anti virus slow a system down that much?

 

And how do I remove programs from the windows 10 computer?  I would like to remove many of the factory default garbage that HP  pre-installed on my system.

 

I know it's a lot and I know I'm all over the place, but I am basically a brand new computer user  with windows 10 and jaws.

 

Thanks for any help.

The Blackberry Priv has a slide out keyboard; the KeyOne, as
I understand things, is like a candy bar.

You can do whatever else anyone does with the touchscreen.

If you save your Contacts on your SIM card, they should be
there when you flip your SIM card from one GSM device to
another. Alternately, as Chris suggested, letting Google
manage them is so much better because they'll synchronise
across the board thus obviating the need to keep retyping
them.
I personally DO NOT have a Contacts list of any kind.
Sounds stupid perhaps but I do well sticking the numbers I
call on a regular basis in my wee, small head! As such,
I'll let those who store Contacts explain that one better
than I can.

Anyway, the Priv and KeyOne are two great devices for a
blind consumer interested in playing ball with Android, but
not electing to tinker with a touchscreen device.
Personally, neither device captures my interest since I live
in the touchscreen world and it's more convenient for me to
carry an extra keyboard around in my pocket as I can put
such keyboard to other uses when necessary. I do have
foldable, pocket-sized bluetooth keyboards that play ball
well with what I do.

If the slide out keyboard on the Priv will be a challenge,
the KeyOne should fit the bill though it may be necessary to
keep an eye on its price for a bit. It has come down by
more than $200, but I think that market pressures will push
the price of the KeyOne down even further and that's good in
my view.

Reading emails in Outlook.

Carolyn Arnold
 

A while back, I remember discussion about JAWS reading messages in Outlook, and that it does not always start at the beginning. Quite by accident I discovered this, which seems to work:

 

1.  Control O opens the message (one downer, two key strokes instead of Enter)

2.  Then press the Say All function.

Hi all,

There are both audio and text files. FS-Reader, ya know that link that's on your desktop, the one everyone forgets about? That's VFO's DAISY player and it works just fine for this stuff. What's wrong with DAISY anyway? Makes stuff much easier to use.
