Audacity 2.1.3 And JAWS 18.0.2945; A Combination That Bites: Self-Publishing: Accessible Web Host’s Internet 101.

If you’re running Windows 10 Version 1703, JAWS 18.0.2945, and Audacity 2.1.3; you might have already noticed that things aren’t quite right when it comes to simply importing files into Audacity, or even just closing Audacity. “However,” Audacity is still quite useable if you don’t mind shutting off JAWS and running Narrator; the screen reading software built into windows ten. All the keyboard commands built into audacity will remain the same; enabling you to import sound files into audacity and close the program without it crashing. In short; you’re chances for getting any serious editing done improves significantly via the Narrator and Audacity 2.1.3 combination.

JAWS 18.0.2945 Crashes Internet Explorer 11 On Windows 10: Self-Publishing: Accessible Web Host’s Internet 101.

Even in Windows 10 Version 1703; JAWS performs best in internet Explorer 11 when the browser window is maximized. However, when you hold down the Alt key and tap the Space Bar, and then tap the letter X to maximize the Internet Explorer 11 window; the browser crashes; sometimes taking JAWS 18.0.2945 right along with it. This has been a problem that has persistently presented since my upgrade to Windows 10 Version 1703; occurring on all my machines. “However,” one can resolve this by turning JAWS off and then using Narrator to maximize the browser window; just as you would normally do using JAWS.

When I explained to her what my problem was, and that it was occurring when I used JAWS 18 yet not Narrator, on both machines I tested; I just couldn’t believe my ears when she sat there and told me it wasn’t a problem with JAWS and that I needed to talk to the accessibility folks over at Microsoft.

However, the IT Department of the company she’s coding for didn’t really inspire much confidence; saying software wasn’t present that actually was and trying to do stuff that was already completed. So, it really didn’t come as a surprise to me when they insisted on putting Malwarebytes 3.0 in her computer, even though she already had McAfee antivirus/malware software installed.

Java Updates With JAWS Running Windows 10: Self-Publishing: Accessible Web Host’s Internet 101.

Based on my little Java 8 Update 111 experience; anyone using Jaws 17 or any of the JAWS for Windows versions might want to consider deactivating the Java bridge before taking new Java updates in future. I’m not sure how it is on 32 bit machines running JFW. But on my 64 bit Windows 10 powered computers the only way to get JAWS to work with Java involved turning the Java Bridge off and then restarting the computer before turning it back on again.
