RE: getting jaws to come up talking.

Hello Curtis.

 

By chance do you have two sound cards?  If you have two sound cards jaws for
Windows will use the sound card that was installed last.  Remember one of
the sound cards may be a USB headset.  This would explain why when you
restart jaws for Windows it will use the correct sound card.

 

I hope this helps.

Hmm, I thought that as a service meant that it was loaded from the registry
somewhere. Anyway, the fact is, that it isn't talking and she must unload
it, and then load it again for it to speak.
Thanks for ideas. She's frustrated by it not speaking, and all those steps
she must do  ... etc. :)

Chris,

P.S. I just looked in my startup group list where you said to look, and all 
that's there is my Microtek scanner that I use with Open Book, running its 
self-test. Now, I don't know if this contradicts your definition or 
experience, but that scanner test runs *before* Jaws speaks, and also my 
Desktop is fully up and visible before Jaws speaks, also. I'm partial, 
obviously.

Does this contradict anything in your definition? Or does it imply that, all

the while, Jaws is indeed loading but is hesitating to announce that it's 
ready until the scanner test has finished and the Desktop screen elements 
are all in place? is fully on the screen?

Thanks.

Hi all, when a programme runs as a service, it runs before Windows even logs
you into your account should you have a log in dialogue box. This is why
JAWS and any other commercial screen reader can speak or braille from within
the Windows log on dialogue box. This is not the case when a programme runs
from the startup group, as these are executed after Windows is loaded and
you're on the desktop. FYI, the startup group is the startup folder, found
under Start Menu, All Programmes, Startup. Hope this helps.
