Hi Stanley. If you are using windows 10 you already have an antivirus program. It’s called windows security, or windows defender and is quite good.

Are there any free antivirus programs out there that work reasonably well with Jaws?  Thanks a lot for the info.

Windows Defender has received a positive evaluation in independent tests recently.

I would suggest taking other precautions as well. For example, you can turn on memory integrity protection in the security settings, if your hardware supports it. You can also install Microsoft’s security baseline configuration, which enables various security features.

Re: Free antivirus programs and Jaws.

I wonder if memory integrity is just error correction, and not for malicious software?
Memory correction is by definition not as fast, but it catches errors in transmission of data, which could in the long run be faster.
If my computer supports it, I'd prefer to have RAM with ECC for that reason.
But I am not sure if memory integrity refers to that.

Hey Gang,

I want to put Samantha in my text to speech, so when I play games I hear her voice.

do you think this problem is a result of latest update or sound card issue

joanne
 

I don't know how well I'll explain this but I'll try. It's rather complex and something I just haven't run across before; and too many times I've had to restart by using the button on computer because with Jaws acting this way I can't shut down or restart using Jaws. Not sure it is an issue with the latest update, but it started happening after installing it. I'll be doing just fine for awhile and then all of a sudden there'll be this pop-up from Jaws and no alt-tabbing will get me out of it. It says "this feature can only be used in tandem," and I'm not using tandem at the time and haven't used it in a long time. I attempt to restart Jaws and it says jaws 40 minute mode and that "this feature" message won't go away. It acts like the jaws key is locked by the way typed characters are shown. And it makes this click noise upon spacing. I can't restart it without this limited speech, so I use the button and it goes back to normal for awhile.
 
The reason I wonder if Jaws doesn't like the sound card anymore is I'm now afraid to play music while working with jaws because I don't know if the sound card doesn't like my doing 2 things at once and that's why that strange message. I did make sure "allow wave files" was checked but just don't know what's causing this craziness. I don't know if a restore will help. I'm very open to ideas.
 
Thanks.

What do you mean you want to put Sam in your TTS? She's 1 of the Real Speak choices. So she should be 1 of the other voices you can download for JAWS. Sorry if you mean something else.

Hi Joanne,
Did you run the update through the Jaws prompt, or did you download the updater file and launch the file?
If the latter, did you run it as administrator?
If the former, try downloading the update file, run as administrator via the applications key, and try doing a repair, which will be an option.

Hey, Chris.  Works like a charm. Shift F6 should work to get you right to the folder tree view as it's the last item on the folder bar.  this key combo is about as good as insert/shift/s in Excel which brings up a bunch of operations like rename.

Re: do you think this problem is a result of latest update or sound card issue

That's strange.
 
First, I'd try a Jaws repair.  I'm not sure what is generating that tandem message you're getting.
 
Second, part of this issue sounds like some type of lock-up is occurring.  Have you run a good anti-virus and anti-malware scan recently? 
 
Does your hardware check out properly, i.e. is all your memory working properly?  Often, application dumps or freezes are a result of a memory problem.
 
I don't know if Narrator talks if you choose to do the memory check procedure as outlined below, otherwise, you'll need a pair of eyes or Aira to assist you:

Open the Jaws menu with insert-j,
hit alt-h
Arrow down to more voices and hit enter.
Look for the Vocalizer 2 voices and a combo box to choose which voice and arrow down to Samantha, and hit enter I believe to start the download.
If you run into trouble, you may want to call FS support.

Re: Free antivirus programs and Jaws.

JM Casey
 

I recommend persevering with malwarebytes despite a somewhat annoying interface. It’s certainly usable, if not the most accessible thing out there. The thing is, it is a really good programme and the people behind it really know their stuff. It has saved my butt on at least three or four occasions, or at least helped me deal with obnoxious unwanted crap on my system.

Only thing is, like many programmes of its type, you should always make sure you understand a little of what you are getting rid of, when it flags stuff. Sometimes it will flag something like a change you made to the registry (either manually or through some other programme) that you actually want to keep/is actually wanted. You have to understand what kind of stuff MB flags and why. For instance, I replaced my task manager with Process Explorer some time back. Malwarebytes thinks this is a potential hack and so offers to remove the registry change.

new Kronos Time keeping application

Van Lant, Robin
 

Anyone out there using the new Kronos time keeping system at their office?  We just upgraded to the new version and it’s challenging.   In the past Kronos had a java based version and an HTML version, the latter of which was reasonably accessible.  This new version is designed with more of the tiles and web design elements I’m struggling to access with JAWS.  Looking for any other users for input before I got to Kronos directly through my HR contact here.

Re: do you think this problem is a result of latest update or sound card issue

JM Casey
 

Hey.

 

This is interesting.

 

Sorry for the snark in advance, but isn’t Aira just a remote pair of eyes? :P

 

I’d be interested to know if there is a command line alternative to mdsched to bypass the gui entirely. I never ran this before myself; I just checked and it appears it has no command line switches and can’t be run without the interface. But maybe there is something else. That said, it shouldn’t be hard to just let the test run without speech (I doubt narrator will work here, but hey, maybe, give it a try) and then check results in event viewer.

Would still seem more efficient to me to just decide what you want, execute some command line switches and then have the results dumped into a text file. But hey…

 

Also note that if a memory stick registers ashaving “issues”, it might be something as simple as it having become slightly unseated, or some dirt got in there. Yes, it sounds stupid, but this happened once to my last PC. I was having inexplicable memory faults every so often for a while that would cause a system halt. Then one day the computer simply would not boot, giving me a steady beeping sound instead. So my ex and I opened up the case, gently cleaned around all the modules (it was a bit dusty in there as I recall!), and made sure everything was snugly in place. System booted perfectly after that.

 

But yeah, this may be a completely different problem.

Re: Free antivirus programs and Jaws.

Windows 7 has a very good built in antivirus program, Microsoft Essentials. I used this one for many years and had no issues. If it’s not on your computer already just go to the internet and type in ‘download Microsoft Essentials’, after downloading just run the program or you could run it right from the download page.
