Re: What are the correct settings forf jaws in the dis;play window?

Rick, yes problem solved, but I am still trying to figure out how to add 
stuff to my start menu, and for the life of me, I am stumped. I go to task 
and start menu tab and go to start menu and go to customize and from there, 
I don't know what to do. you better write me off list since this may not be 
a jaws issue.

Hi Jim,
Below you will find the recommended settings from Freedom Scientific.
You might want to go thru your settings and double-check them against the
ones listed here.

Windows XP and JAWS

This topic discusses settings changes we recommend you make when using JAWS
in Windows XP Home or Professional. You must be logged in with
administrative rights to make several of these changes.

Many of these settings are changed within Control Panel. To open Control
Panel, press the WINDOWS KEY to open the Start Menu, move to Control Panel,
and press ENTER. Depending on your system settings, Control Panel either
opens in a separate window, or the Control Panel items open as a sub-menu.

We recommend making changes in the following areas:
. Display Properties
. Folder Options
. Start Menu
. Windows Explorer
. System Performance

Display Properties

1. From the Control Panel, move to "Display" and press Enter.
2. From the themes combo box, select Windows XP.
3. In the List of backgrounds on the Desktop page, choose Bliss.
4. Set Position to "Stretch".
5. In the Screen Saver combo box on the Screen Saver page, press HOME to
select none.
6. On the Appearance page, set Windows and Buttons to Windows classic style.
7. Set Color Scheme to Windows Standard.
8. Set Font to normal.
9. Close the dialog.

Note: After making these changes, the Display page Themes combo box says
"Modified Theme".

Folder Options
1. From the Control Panel, press ALT+T to go to the Tools menu
2. Press O for Folder Options.
3. From the Tasks radio button group, select Use Windows Classic folders
4. (Optional):
A. On the View page, move to the Advanced Settings tree view.
B. Clear the Hide Extensions For Known File Types check box.
C. If you also use screen magnification software, clear the Show pop-up
description for folder and desktop items check box. Pop up descriptions
often hides
the menu item just below any given menu item, making it impossible to
visually see the next item in the menu list.
D. Move to the Apply to All Folders button and press SPACEBAR.
E. Answer Yes to the dialog that comes up to acknowledge this change.
5. Move to the OK button in the Folder Options dialog box and press SPACEBAR
to close this dialog box.

Start Menu
1. From Control Panel, Move to Taskbar and Start menu and press ENTER.
2. From the Taskbar page, press ALT+G to move to and uncheck Group Similar
Taskbar Buttons.
3. Press ALT+H to move to and uncheck the check box for Hide inactive icons.
4. Press CTRL+TAB to move to the Start Menu page.
5. Select Classic start menu.
6. Press ENTER to close this dialog box.

Windows Explorer
1. Press WINDOWS KEY+E to open Windows Explorer.
2. Press ALT+V to open the View menu.
3. Select "Arrange Icons by" and press ENTER to open the submenu.
4. Move to the menu item "Name" to arrange by Name, and Press ENTER to
select this and close the menus.
5. Repeat steps 2 and 3, and move to the item "Show in Groups." If it is
checked, press ENTER to uncheck it and close the menus.
6. Press ALT+T to open the Tools menu.
7. Press O to open the Folder Options Dialog.
8. Press CTRL+TAB to move to the View page.
9. Press SPACEBAR to activate the "Apply to all folders" button, and press
SPACEBAR on the YES button to acknowledge this change.
10. Move to the OK button and press SPACEBAR to close this dialog box.

System Performance
1. From the Control Panel, move to System and press ENTER to open the System
Properties Dialog.
2. Press CTRL+TAB to move to the Advanced page.
3. Press ALT+S to activate the Performance Settings button. The Performance
Options Dialog opens.
4. Clear the following check boxes:
. Animate Windows when Minimizing and Maximizing.
. Slide open Combo Boxes.
. Smooth-scroll List Boxes.
. Use Visual Styles on Windows and Buttons.
5. Press ENTER to close the Performance Options dialog and return to the
System Properties dialog box.
6. Press ENTER to activate the OK button and close the System Properties
dialog box.

Hi Jim,
Do you experience the same problem with an earlier version of Jaws?

I see on the recommended settings that you should put your windows settings
in windows XP on the themes page, background to bliss and screen saver to
none. and in appearance tab, it is saying windows colors standard and font
normal. Well I understand that the settings



have changed from those ;posted on the jfwlite page. What are they now? it
also told me that when i opened display again it would say  windows
modified. Well mine says windows XP modified. I am just wandering what the
correct settings should be, because i still can't get into my side tray
without the jaws script editor giving me a message that jaws explorer is
already running, press enter to continue. it never used to give me that
message, so what to do. I when into script manager and did Control D and
Control S to save and it script compiling complete. Yet when i try to go
into system tray i get the same message. So What to do? Running jaws 7 and
Windows XP pro.
Jim
