Hi,

Yup that isn't the updated version - you still need to apply the update.

Andrew.

Hi,

Go to the Run menu, by pressing Windows and R, then type without the quotes
"winver".  Then press enter.

Tell us what version it comes up with.

All the best

Steve

Hi all,
My assumption is that I have updated some 10 days ago. When I started the
computer, for the first time since all kinds of quite updates I am hardly
aware of, jaws announced that windows was updating and I should not shut
down the computer. It did so and restarted, did not take much more than 4
minutes, so I assume I am on anniversary, as I do not know of a way to check
this easily. All went well with me and I had no issue I was aware of. The
only issue I have, but had it in previous versions of jaws, is that it
suddenly ceases and restarts and in my system tray I get jaws twice. I
wonder if anyone else had this, or could perhaps, explain to me why this
happens. Otherwise, all fine with the update here.
                All the Best,
                Takis

Hi,

I have updated with latest JFW using Windows Update and manually and both
ways didn't need me to do anything with video drivers, it all just worked.

You get a new version of Windows, so some things may reset themselves.  My
parents had more of an issue than I did as they lost all their printers and
that was a real bother as I had to help them remotely.

Andrew.

Hi David

I find this whole subject a bit of a debacle on Microsoft's part.  I thought
it was the case that if you force the upgrade by going to look for it
manually, then that is when you need to disable the video drivers for JAWS
and Window-Eyes.  I thought receiving it through the usual Windows Update
channel was the best way.  Perhaps I have read it all wrong then! (smile.)

Kind Regards,

Jackie Brown

I apologise if this has all been covered on list  as I have not had time to
review all emails recently.


However despite my probably not researching enough I would welcome anybody
correcting me on the following.

As far as I can tell.

1.The Windows 10 Anniversary Update  process is incompatible with Video
Drivers for both Jaws and Window Eyes.


2. The Update process is not user started and will be rolled out to
everybody eventually without exception.


I now realise that,  I think, my current process of passively waiting for
the update to happen is probably very ill advised. I thinkg this especially
given there is a known incompatibility between screen readers and the update
process. In other words I am sleepwalking into a known problem and not doing
anything about it.


I would prefer the process to be smooth rather than landing up with a
computer that is screwed half way through an update process without being
able to proceed.


I am now thinking I should manually  disable the Jaws and Window Eyes video
drivers in Device Manager and then force an update relying on NVDA and
Narrator.  This would then enable me to retain control and re-install Jaws
and Window Eyes to repair the Video drivers afterwards.

I think I know how to disable the video drivers but have still not found a
way of forcing the Anniversary Update through the Windows Update feature.


Any advice or comments?
