Thanks for everyone’s help. It is running fine now. It seems to take a bit longer to load for some reason. I do have a large library and 16gb of RAM. Perhaps I didn’t need to go through all that. Running the installer as administrator helped greatly. I’ve never had to do that before.

one thing to watch out for with some computers is you can not turn off the number pad because they do not have a number lock key. which most screen readers need before they can use the keys for there mouse functions.

I really don't think any of the variables you are considering will be of concern.
Jaws will work on pretty much computer running Windows.
The thing for you to be concerned about is the form factor of the computer and if you are comfortable with it.

List, my Toshiba laptop is in need of replacement.

Have any of you on the list recently purchased a new 15.6 inch screen laptop computer that works well with jaws?

I would like another laptop that has a built in keypad.

Also, has jaws worked well with the new solid state drives?

Thanks for any help.

Like many of us using jaws and access technology for the last 28 years, can remember in the past being sure we got a laptop with the right kind of video card and audio card. That said my current Toshiba was bought off Amazon with standard video and audio card.

Again, thanks for any ideas or suggestions.

So how do I fix that so then when I go to the page in open drive that has the select all button and how can I keep it when I hit on the space bar on the

select all button to then be able to go up and hit the down loae button?

I have turned the virtual couser off and that didn't change anything but I can down load from the open drive site just fine with chrome or the brave browser.


It is just with firefox that I am getting this.

I would really like to correct this if I can.

So I have used google chrome and the brave browser and I don't get that I can down load normaly with those browsers.

That just happens with fire fox.

Re: Jaws friendly laptop

Glenn / Lenny
 

John,
I should add that I am not knocking Acer laptops.
I have another Acer laptop here with Windows 7 and I love the layout.
I think Acer makes a great laptop.
I like Dell's laptops, but I think that their desktop computers are crap in my opinion.
Dell hasn't done well with good driver support for its hardware in desktop computers, and I don't think they have the best components.
But their laptops seem quite good, as far as quality.
But all manufacturers make different models and they are always changing, and if someone is looking for a new computer, it is pretty hard to ask for opinions on brands and models, as most people with a computer that can tell you about it, are using one a year or more old, and this won't help you in your search, since they are changing all the time.
So if you do order one "feel untouched", ask about the separation of the keys, and what the F-keys do by default, and if it is not what you want, if that behavior can be changed in the BIOS.
Also, it wouldn't hurt to get on-line and read some reviews of computers and based on that, call the store or the manufacturer and ask them about the form factor.
HTH.

John,
That is what I meant by form factor.
Jaws will work fine on all computers, but there are factors such as the F-keys requiring the FN key to do some of the tasks that we typically do, and I think that on the laptops where this has happened, usually that feature can be turned off in the BIOS, but perhaps someone can let you know if they haven't been able to turn that off.
I think it is important to put my hands on a laptop before buying it.
For example, my wife has an Acer where all the keys touch and there is no easily discernable distinction between all the keys, just lines where the level keys touch.
Even with dots on it, I hate it.
But we ordered it from Best Buy a long time back and I had my brother pick it up and I met him in another town when we could do so, and I would have never picked this laptop for my use, but that is what happens when you buy one ""feel untouched" you might say.

Also, especially if you are considering HP, make sure you can change the behaviour of the function keys, as HP sets them to act as hardware function keys. Most of them have an option in the bios to switch this, but some do not.

Hi friends Does anyone here remember why they took away weather and the Amazon thing from Research It? Also no noise on my thing about Jaws for lack of better wording auto scrolling pages? Like on You Tube. I get to the like button than JAWS desides it wants to go back to the top of the page. or now it at times won't let ne even go where I want to. 2019 kinda does it on my laptop but the desktop's 18 coppy of JAWS is tereble. I'm thus using NVDA for the time being.

long delay in JAWS reading Directory structure when saving or sending files

JOHN RIEHL
 

Hi. I’m using W-10 and the latest JAWS. I’m having this really annoying problem that didn’t happen in Windows-7. When I’m in outlook or Word, each time I want to send or save a file, it takes perhaps 30 seconds for JaWS to read the directories.

For example: This morning I wanted to save a copy of my morning’s Washington Post sent to me from NFB in an e-mail. In outlook, when I’m on the message, I go to file and save attachments and press enter twice (to save the attachments and save all attachments). Then I wait. And wait. My expected behavior is to shift-tab back to see the directories so I can select the correct directory to save the files. But JAWS doesn’t read anything; it is silent. After about 20-30 seconds, I can finally hear the directories, pick one and save the files.

This happens when I try to send  a file or save a file in Word. What’s going on? Why is there this delay?

And how can I stop it?

It’s driving me crazy!

Thanks. John Riehl

Re: pdf accessibility

Glenn / Lenny
 

By accessible, do you mean just reading, or filling out a form?
For reading, you can open it in Open Book, or another OCR program, or you can open most with Acrobat DC, or Chrome and I think FireFox can read them.
You can use Jaws convenient OCR on it.
You can do that with the applications key.
Or you can use insert + space bar, and I think S is the key and P I think for page.
