Java Updates With JAWS Running Windows 10: Windows Software: Accessible Web Host’s Internet 101.

Based on my little Java 8 Update 111 experience; anyone using Jaws 17 or any of the JAWS for Windows versions might want to consider deactivating the Java bridge before taking new Java updates in future. I’m not sure how it is on 32 bit machines running JFW. But on my 64 bit Windows 10 powered computers the only way to get JAWS to work with Java involved turning the Java Bridge off and then restarting the computer before turning it back on again.

“No!” Turning JAWS off and then turning JAWS back on again after the update completed wasn’t nearly enough.

Also, doing the Java verification that we’re prompted to do at the end of each update seems to go a lot smoother with the Java Bridge turned off; using Windows Internet Explorer 11 on the Windows 10 Platform. I don’t know why that is. But…

  2. Gudrun, thank you for visiting my site. Java verification certainly doesn’t come easily with a screen reader. But your remarks prompted me to put together an MP3 audio file, which I plan to create a post to go along with; addressing what you are talking about. Thanks again for visiting. Cheers!
