Re: Jaws 9 reading problems on laptop

if all else fails, do the wize thing, and either repare jaws, or uninstall it, then re install the shark. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Pablo" <ps8001@xxxxxxxxxxx>

i agree 100% with this assessment... it could be as simple as the walpaper that would probably be changed to your manufacturors(Dell i think you said) wallpaper, and for some reason, sometimes certain wallpapers will make jaws act very strange... including making jaws cursor say blank blank blank, not reading tabs, not reading list views correctly.. switch the wallpaper to none, and hit apply if this is your problem this will fix everything..

Good Luck

Troy,

Check your screen resolution and color depth, and the usual settings for
themes -- all in the display section of the control panel.

Subject: Jaws 9 reading problems on laptop


Hello All,

Earlier this week I had my Dell laptop restored to factory settings by my
tech, not Dell,  and I don't know what difference that makes, but I've
noticed that since I've reinstalled Jaws 9 that when I go to the Jaws cursor
to read anything it won't read the majority of the time, even things it
normally does read. In most cases reading with the pc cursor is fine. When
I'm right arrowing reading tabs though it won't read the name of the tab
either in the Jaws cursor or the pc cursor, all it says is tab.  Does
anybody have any idea what might be wrong?

Thanks.

Troy
