Hi Mike,

No, I think David might remember this, but at the time it was on the Jaws
users page it wasn’t called Stascom, it was called by another name, as it
maximized windows, provided shut and start up sounds and a whole host of
other enhancements to the sound scheme.

It’s been a while, at least ten or more years-ago.

Hi Victor,

I learned about the Stascom Suite several months ago and just installed it
to try it out a couple of months ago. If it was introduced as far back as
XP I don't have a clue. If it's on the Jaws-Users website I don't have a
clue as to what it's called, but it's not under the, Utilities, heading as,
Stascom, or at least my search didn't find it using the Stascom name on the
Programs page.

Hi Mike,

I just read the description of this program, and a great deal of the
information sounded familiar.

Did this utility used to go by a different name?

Perhaps in the old Windows XP days?

I also think David had it up on the website under Windows Utilities.

Am I correct?

Hi All,

As I mentioned earlier, try installing, Stascom, it'll let you know that
your computer is both starting and shutting down reliably. Note: Don't use
IE11 to access this link, but use any other browser. I couldn't get the
webpage to open using IE11.

Stanley, while the Jaws start message is mostly consistent, you’ll find the
Jaws speech at Windows shut down is hit and miss.

I know this as I’ve been using Jaws since 4.5, about fifteen years now.

The only way I knew when Jaws was shutting down was when my computer shut
down and Windows XP did it’s chime thing.

Since then, what you described is hit and miss for me.

For example, I just saved a draft of this message, re-started my computer
and went back to the message, and I had no indication that my computer was
re-starting, nor that Jaws was shutting down save for my computer fan
whirring around in the background. That fan certainly is consistent,
certainly not the Jaws speech at Windows shut down.

Hello Everyone:



This is Stanley Haupt from Lehighton, PA. I have been using JAWS since
Window-Eyes was discontinued. I started with JAWS 18, JAWS 2018 and JAWS
2019.



On this list there has been some email discussion about having JAWS speak
when starting and turning off your computer. I have the box check to start
JAWS at the Log-in screen. The start JAWS box for all users is not checked.
The final step is to run JAWS for this user always.



It takes my computer fifteen seconds to start. JAWS says JAWS Professional.



When I do Alt-f4 to shut down JAWS says JAWS for Windows. That message let’s
me know that the computer has shutdown properly.



I am the only one in the household who uses the computer.

Re: Transitioning back from Mac to PC? Lots of questions

Astrid van Woerkom
 

Thanks so much for answering my questions. Yes, I used to use Lire on my iPhone and a web-based feed reader on Windows. I never found a good web-based reader that I liked though. Now I use News Explorer on both my iPhone and Mac, because it syncs very easily. That’s the only thing keeping me from deciding I want a Windows PC, because I use feed readers really all the time.


Op 22 jun. 2019 om 02:12 heeft Audiobookfan <listening4it@...> het volgende geschreven:

Astrid,

Regarding browsers, I find that the latest versions of both Chrome and Firefox work well with recent versions of JAWS. IE also still works well from my experience in most cases. (It's still my default browser.)

I use Thunderbird for email and love it. It's quite accessible with JAWS.

If you like your iPhone (as I like mine) you might find that some things are even easier on the iPhone than on the PC. For instance, I use the iOS Facebook app even though the mobile Facebook site is accessible. The Kindle app on the iPhone is accessible as is the Audible app and the BARD app if you have access to BARD.

There are several podcast apps for the iPhone that are quite accessible and popular. And you might want to try Lire for your blogs.

Many people like iPhone apps for Twitter, but I greatly prefer TWBlue on my Windows 10 computer.

As far as syncing files between Windows and iOS is concerned, Dropbox works quite well for this. You can also use Google Drive or OneDrive from Microsoft. I understand you can use iCloud even now, but I haven't done this myself. And as of iOS 13 being released this fall, it definitely should work even better with the new updated Files app.

I'd be willing to bet that you will find Windows 10 with JAWS to be a much more pleasant experience than you had with your mac. Good luck.

Hi all,
I am new to this list and, though I’m not new to JAWS, I have some seemingly novice questions.
I need to make the choice between a Mac with VoiceOve ror a PC with Windows 10 and JAWS. Background: have used PCs with JAWS ever since 2002, but had been waiting for approval from my health insurance to get a new JAWS version ever since late 2017. In the meantime, last January, I bought a Mac, which I can’t get used to. Long story short, I was finally approved for JAWS and now my husband is willing to get me a Windows PC and to take over my Mac. Keeping both the Mac and PC is not an option for practical reasons.
As the purchase of the Mac was quite a desperate action and I don’t want to repeat it, I want to get opinions from people as to how useable JAWS is these days. Is there a browser that works well? I cannot get used to the way Safari works on the Mac, but I don’t want to have to have three different browsers on my PC like I did with my last Windows PC and way old JAWS. What about Windows Mail? Is the Windows app store accessible nowadays, and if not, where do you get your apps?
Is there a way to keep files synchronized between PC and iPhone? I like my iPhone and really use it all the time.
What feed reader(s) is/are accessible with JAWS? Is Kindle for PC still accessible (Kindle for Mac isn’t)? Just some random questions. Will ask more if I think of any.

Subject: [jaws-users] How to Have JAWS speech at Startup and Shutdown
 

                Hello Everyone:

 

This is Stanley Haupt from Lehighton, PA. I have been using JAWS since Window-Eyes was discontinued. I started with JAWS 18, JAWS 2018 and JAWS 2019.

 

On this list there has been some email discussion about having JAWS speak when starting and turning off your computer. I have the box check to start JAWS at the Log-in screen. The start JAWS box for all users is not checked. The final step is to run JAWS for this user always.

 

It takes my computer fifteen seconds to start. JAWS says JAWS Professional.

 

When I do Alt-f4 to shut down JAWS says JAWS for Windows. That message let’s me know that the computer has shutdown properly.

 

I am the only one in the household who uses the computer.

 


Re: question downloading Office 365

David Goldfield
 

Hi, Robin.

As John has correctly indicated there are some definite advantages to moving to Office 365. First, I can assure you with 100% certainty that you may download local copies of apps such as Word, Excel, Outlook, etc. If you decide to go with Office 365, you will be provided with a download link to a setup file. Once you run and install the setup file it will immediately download and install all of the Office apps. During this process almost no intervention from you is even required. Just run the setup file and the process of installing your Office programs begins immediately. If your UAC or user account settings are set to ask you to verify that you want to install Office just say Yes and then the process will begin. After the installation has completed the various Office apps will be available in your start menu.

As John has said Office 365 is updated monthly. These updates may contain new features that you will not receive if you have a perpetual license of Office, such as the license that you currently have with Office 2010. As an example, if you purchase Office 2019 you will certainly receive security updates but you won't receive any additional features. With Office 365, you not only receive security updates but you will receive additional features, as well, including some which may have a positive impact on accessibility.

Hi Mike,
 
No, I think David might remember this, but at the time it was on the Jaws users page it wasn’t called Stascom, it was called by another name, as it maximized windows, provided shut and start up sounds and a whole host of other enhancements to the sound scheme.
 
It’s been a while, at least ten or more years-ago.

I learned about the Stascom Suite several months ago and just installed it to try it out a couple of months ago.  If it was introduced as far back as XP I don't have a clue.  If it's on the Jaws-Users website I don't have a clue as to what it's called, but it's not under the, Utilities, heading as, Stascom, or at least my search didn't find it using the Stascom name on the Programs page.

I just now tried signing up for a newsletter from a web site I heard on Coast To Coast with Internet Explorer, and I tried to do the audio challenge, and I got a message back stating that my computer appears to be sending automated queries and to try back later.
This has happened before with IE.
So I did alt + D and control C to copy the URL, and opened the page in FireFox, and everything worked well with FF.
This is but one example where we need to have multiple browsers at hand.

Astrid,

Regarding browsers, I find that the latest versions of both Chrome and
Firefox work well with recent versions of JAWS. IE also still works well
from my experience in most cases. (It's still my default browser.)

I use Thunderbird for email and love it. It's quite accessible with JAWS.

If you like your iPhone (as I like mine) you might find that some things
are even easier on the iPhone than on the PC. For instance, I use the
iOS Facebook app even though the mobile Facebook site is accessible. The
Kindle app on the iPhone is accessible as is the Audible app and the
BARD app if you have access to BARD.

There are several podcast apps for the iPhone that are quite accessible
and popular. And you might want to try Lire for your blogs.

Many people like iPhone apps for Twitter, but I greatly prefer TWBlue on
my Windows 10 computer.

As far as syncing files between Windows and iOS is concerned, Dropbox
works quite well for this. You can also use Google Drive or OneDrive
from Microsoft. I understand you can use iCloud even now, but I haven't
done this myself. And as of iOS 13 being released this fall, it
definitely should work even better with the new updated Files app.

I'd be willing to bet that you will find Windows 10 with JAWS to be a
much more pleasant experience than you had with your mac. Good luck.

Jeff

Question: JAWS 2019: Unable to Invoke the On-Screen Keyboard Using the Four-finger Swipe Down/up Gesture

David Goldfield
 

Hello. I'm running JAWS 2019 using Windows 10 build 1803 on a Dell Lattitude 2-in-1 device with a touch screen, along with a detachable keyboard.

I have been asked to deliver a demo regarding the touch screen gestures used by JAWS. As I make my way through the relevant help topic in the JAWS help system I am having little difficulty with most of the gestures, except for one. I am not able to invoke the on-screen keyboard using the four finger swipe down/up gesture. At first I had wondered if the on-screen keyboard would not be available if the physical keyboard was attached. However, even after removing the keyboard the gesture still doesn't work. I have so far tried doing this in Word 365 and in Wordpad. What's the secret to accessing the on-screen keyboard? Should it not work in Word and in Wordpad? I welcome any feedback from any users who have experience with this.
