Jaws Updates


Shelly Kane
 

Hi Group:


My computer kept telling me that there was Jaws updates but didn't have time so I said no a few times and now it's not asking me anymore.  I went to Jaws and went to help and then about like I do in Thunderbird and I can see the updates there but in Jaws, there is no updates.  Does anyone know where I can find my update and do it?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Hi Shelly,

Go to the Freedom Scientific website, then downloads, and then you should be able to download the latest update. Hope this helps,
Madison

Hi Shelly,
If you do download the latest version of JAWS from their web site, as I did last night, would you please let me know during or after the download, if you got a message saying this version of JAWS needs to be repaired, as I had to repair JAWS 2021? Assuming you might be downloading JAWS 2021.
I would greatly appreciate your help in this, as I am having some serious issues with JAWS 2021.
Thank you.

It may be that Freedom Scientific may be able to solve the problem. I'm beginning to think that there is either something wrong with or something nonstandard about the Windows installation, though the problem could be something else.

I don't know how long you have to return the computer or exchange it. You might want to consider trying a computer from Computers For the Blind. You'll save a lot of money and the computer, though it will be considerably slowwer, may satisfy you for what you are going to use it for. You aren't using the computer for anything that requires a good deal of power. It comes with JAWS installed and NVDA as well. You may have time to evaluate it and have time to return the machine yu have now. You can ask if you can return the machine from Computers For the Blind if you wish. I suspect you will be able to but you can check. if you can return either machine, evaluating the Computers for the Blind machine might be a good idea.

Gene,
Thank you for this, as this is something to think about. I have 15 days to return this Laptop to Best Buy, and the countdown of the 15 days started when I picked it up this last Saturday. Although, I really don't think it is the Laptop, I'm pretty sure this is on the end of JAWS just for the simple fact, JAWS 2021 performs the exact same way on my Windows 7. I just thought when I would put JAWS 2021 on my Windows 10, it might perform better, but it isn't, as JAWS 2021 performs on my Windows 7 it is the same on my Windows 10.

Madison,
Wow, you're kidding, you didn't get that repair message? Ok now, that I think of it, I'm going to download JAWS 2021 right now, and see if I get the repair message on my Windows 7 machine! If I don't get the repair message, at least I can rule out some things such as gremlins! Smile! Thank you Thank you!

Hi Madison,
Ok, I just downloaded the latest JAWS 2021, and the download went fine, and I got the message saying JAWS download has completed. Now, I can't seem to find any way to set JAWS up though, as far as having JAWS to start at start up, as far as importing JAWS settings from last version of JAWS 2020. I had to go through the search feature, and through all programs, and I did find JAWS 2021, but that is all. There wasn't any way I could make any changes. I went through the Control Panel, as well, and I can see JAWS 2021, but I can't make any changes there either. I will definitely call FS tomorrow, as now they are closed. Thank you for all your help, as it is greatly appreciated.

Madison,
Yes that's right, Can't even get in to the options, or not even close to it. I just can't figure this one out. I am currently using JAWS 2020 on Windows 7. I will have to put JAWS 2020 on my Windows 10 now, although, I do still have JAWS 2021 on Windows 10, for what ever it is worth! LOL!

Subject: [TechTalk] Jaws Updates

Hi Group:


My computer kept telling me that there was Jaws updates but didn't have time so I said no a few times and now it's not asking me anymore. I went to Jaws and went to help and then about like I do in Thunderbird and I can see the updates there but in Jaws, there is no updates. Does anyone know where I can find my update and do it? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Madison,
Wow, you're kidding, you didn't get that repair message? Ok now, that I think of it, I'm going to download JAWS 2021 right now, and see if I get the repair message on my Windows 7 machine! If I don't get the repair message, at least I can rule out some things such as gremlins! Smile! Thank you Thank you!

If it's of any conciliation, I just downloaded the latest upgrade and didn't get such a message.

Hi Shelly,
If you do download the latest version of JAWS from their web site, as I did last night, would you please let me know during or after the download, if you got a message saying this version of JAWS needs to be repaired, as I had to repair JAWS 2021? Assuming you might be downloading JAWS 2021.
I would greatly appreciate your help in this, as I am having some serious issues with JAWS 2021.
Thank you.

Janet

Janet,
There must be a shortcut to Jaws on your desktop. Since you could not set Jaws to run in the system tray, just press enter on the shortcut and it should bring up the Jaws menu.

Yes that's right, Can't even get in to the options, or not even close to it. I just can't figure this one out. I am currently using JAWS 2020 on Windows 7. I will have to put JAWS 2020 on my Windows 10 now, although, I do still have JAWS 2021 on Windows 10, for what ever it is worth! LOL!

Hi Madison,
Ok, I just downloaded the latest JAWS 2021, and the download went fine, and I got the message saying JAWS download has completed. Now, I can't seem to find any way to set JAWS up though, as far as having JAWS to start at start up, as far as importing JAWS settings from last version of JAWS 2020. I had to go through the search feature, and through all programs, and I did find JAWS 2021, but that is all. There wasn't any way I could make any changes. I went through the Control Panel, as well, and I can see JAWS 2021, but I can't make any changes there either. I will definitely call FS tomorrow, as now they are closed. Thank you for all your help, as it is greatly appreciated.

Janet

Thank you so much.  That's exactly what I did.  My niece was here and I asked her to see if she could figure it out and she told me what to do when she took a look at it.  Everything seems to be updated.  I guess it did the update without me doing it.  I I have never had that happen.  I usually have to say yes and wait for it to update.  Hopefully next time it will ask me again just so i know it's there.  This was a quick fix.  Thank you all so much.

Sorry to hear that you are having some issues.  Unfortunately, I am unable to help you because I didn't download my update from the site.  I went to help in the Jaws program and arrowed down to the option check for updates and mine was already updated which I didn't know.  I am so sorry.  Maybe someone else will see this message and be able to help you.

Did you buy the license?  You can get a license subscription for 2 years and the updates would come automatically to your computer.  That's how I do it and then I don't have to go to the website.  Any time a new update comes, it asks me and I usually say yes and if I already have Jaws 2021 on my computer and I'm just updating it, I don't have to do anything.  Now when I went from 2020 to this one, I had to migrate settings so I would have my old settings and I had to go to have Jaws start when you turn on your computer.  I actually have to renew my license next year, I think.  Hope this helps.  If you don't have a license, I have no idea how to advise you.
