Having been contacted on February 2, 2017 by a fellow JAWS user who had never been able to complete the Java verification process after updating their Java installation; I decided it might be helpful if I created the following embedded MP3 Audio file. In This file, in addition to showing what can go wrong during Java verification, I give pointers on how one might be able to complete the process and what to do if they can’t.
As I’m sure you are aware; after updating, or even installing Java for the first time, your browser opens to a page entitled, “Verify Java Version.” In a perfect World; once the page opens one would normally click the “Verify Java Version” link. Then Internet Explorer 11 users like myself would perform the Alt+R keyboard command allowing Java.com’s system to check that Java is properly installed. After doing that one would then hopefully make it to the final page of the check, which indicates that you have the latest version of Java installed on your computer.
“However,” as even Freedom Scientific is aware, “Things in the world aren’t perfect,” especially when it comes to JAWS for Windows users attempting to Update their Java installations. But, this doesn’t mean that the verification process is totally impossible to complete using JAWS for Windows, as demonstrated in the audio file presented Below.
