Hi Lev,
 
The sound problem you're talking about is in Windows 10 and how it removes the factory soundcard driver for some soundcards and replaces it with a generic driver when doing an operating system update.  This problem is supposed to be corrected in a cumulative update or major update for Windows 10 if it hasn't been already fixed.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

Actually, I forgot mentioning that, but some folks pointed out problems with the audio as well although I can’t tell for sure that is exactly the same problem because they didn’t go on details.

On the other hand, I don’t have a solution to your problem.

Hi Robert,
 
You didn't say what operating system you're running, but if you're running Windows 8 or Windows 10 check the following Audio Ducking setting to see if it's turned on.
1. Open the Settings Center with the keystroke, Insert / Jaws key + 6, on the number row, and press, Control, Shift + D, to open the Settings Center default
all applications.
2. Down arrow to, User, and right arrow to open.
3. Down arrow to, Lower audio volume of programs when Jaws speaks, and press the spacebar to uncheck this box.
4. Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close.
This feature can also be tobbled on & off by using a Layered Keystroke.  Press, Insert / Jaws Key + Spacebar, lut up and press the letter, D, to toggle
Audio Ducking on / off.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!
Sennt from my iBarstool.
From: Soronel Haetir
It is in settings center for me (running win10) but is called "Lower
the volume of other programs while jaws is speaking" and is in the
"User" group. Note that you have to switch to the default profile, it
cannot be set on a per-program basis (but the setting is still
displayed, just can't be changed in the per-program profiles).

Thanks so much.  I did find it, and have discovered that it is only
available in Windows8 and above.

Re: Asking a edge question.

Speaking of edge, has any one used Microsoft Edge preview? If I install it, does it install over the top of edge that comes with windows 10? I hear it's very accessible with jaws 2019.

I don't know why you've had that issue, but it definitely is not universal.

I just got done, two days ago, logging into my Paypal account; then sent a

computer with Jaws.
For most things, I use Jaws 16.0.4468 because that is the last version to
work with Outlook Express.

I occasionally use the newest version of Jaws, but generally don't need to.

I would use it more, but for some reason, when I do, it breaks Jaws16
ability to work with Outlook Express without doing a repair of the older
Jaws installation.

I'm speculating here, but that might be due to the fact that when I updated
this PC to Windows 10, I installed 19 first before installing 16.

Hello to my fellow jaws 2019 users.
I was having a serious problem with logging into my paypal account.
Don't know why IE11 wouldn't allow me to use my e-mail and password to log
in, and before I closed out the old account it also wouldn't allow me to
go to the send item and click on the combo box for person's name, e-mail
address and or phone number.
I was able to go into the combo box and jaws confirmed only while typing
in the address.
But when I would go to tap my left and or right arrow keys to confirm that
I had the e-mail correct, I would hear nothing.
Plus since I couldn't fill out the field, the next button wouldn't allow
me to click on it, I could see the next button but since the field wasn't
filled in, I couldn't click on the next button.
I tried using both ie 11 and Google to access my paypal account.
Now for some surprising good news.
So, I tried Edge for the heck of it.
It went through like a knife through butter.
The only issue I had and had to have a pp operator help me out with it to
confirm my bank since it wasn't in the list and Edge wouldn't allow me to
add my bank to the list.
After the PP operator confirmed my bank for me, I was able to ship my fair
share to my cousin for a up coming event.
So I still don't have edge as my default browser just yet.
But I need to see how blind friendly it might be with my Role Playing game
a little later this afternoon.
So the jury is still out on Edge.
Would anyone have a e-mail for feedback to submit this letter to the MS
disability hot line?
Just something for jaws to also know about my frustration and finally my
success to make both jaws and edge more blind friendly.
Hope this feedback will help out others and I'll keep everyone in the loop
on my progress of using edge with jaws.

changes to my Focus Blue Braille display

Sherri
 

I have a really old Focus Blue 40 Braille display.  Somehow, I have managed to change the settings and I cannot find the Braille cursor, dots 7 and 8.  It seems to be invisible.  Also, because I do transcription, I need the Braille to display in uncontracted Braille.  It is for some reason displaying in grade 2.  How can I change that within the Jaws settings?  Thank you.  I am currently using Jaws 2018.

Glenn:

 

This is a good question.

 

I had absolutely no sound after the old sound card driver had been uninstalled, so I’m doubtful that the touch cursor would have helped.

 

But then again, I’m new to the touch cursor concept, at least on this Windows 10 computer.

 

Will be interested in what other list members have to say.

Tom,

If you had trouble with Jaws and the install screen, you should start it again and see if the touch cursor will get you through the install.

You can cancel the install just before it starts.

But I think that this would be good for the list to know if the touch screen could be applied here.
