Re: MAINTENANCE JAWS FOR ITS BETTER PERFORMANCE

Hi,

I ask this question because there are the times that when I use JAWS after some sighted users in here in our PC,
I experience some unexpected errors. Let me list some:

Lost its sound unexpectedly,
JAWS can't read the screen when I use Insert Minus, Insert plus, Insert up arrow and more problems that JAWS always say "blank", or speechless.

That's why  I asked this general question.
I want to here more to JAWS users of how to perform different JAWS maintenance task.

Did the subscriber who asked this question say he or she was having problems
with Jaws? I don't think so. As I recall, it was just a general question
whether there were any steps a Jaws user ought to take in order to maintain
good Jaws performance. I'm not expert enough to know whether the answer is
simply "not really, except for normal good computer housekeeping," or to
remind the person about the convention for making system settings in Windows
considered optimal for Jaws, as on the Display page of the system settings
menus. But I'm pretty sure that there was no complaint of having trouble
with Jaws and seeking hints for restoring its lost efficiency or anything
like that, which is what it sounds as if people are responding to.

If I'm wrong, sorry. But if I heard right, then we could wind up with a long thread of well-meaning suggestions in response to problems that weren't even
posed.

That is a possibility, not sure how much of a difference it would make.
Pretty easy to create a new user account: Control Panel -> Users.

It's possible that the system as a whole could use some general software
maintenance: unneccessary programs running, spyware, etc.

HTH,

Do the other users have their own accounts on the machine? Maybe, if each
user has their own account, wherein, I believe, they can have their own
settings, it will eliminate some of your problems with JAWS. I don't know
whether or not this is fact, it's just a thought I had.  Also, someone
would
have to be set up as the administrator.  How difficult this is, I don't
know.  Hopefully, others on this list will have additional ideas.

hello everybody,

Does JAWS needs for periodic maintenance for its better performance?
How?

I am using JAWS 9.0.2169 in Windows XP Pro SP 2 for my everyday tasks.

This PC serves every sighted individual in our house. They  always use
this
only one PC.

What comes in my mind is that the performance of JAWS maybe affected due
to
the different sighted users.
