Hi,
I had to set the setting in Jaws to stop it from saying blank, blank all the 
time. Here below is how I did it. This came from Mike B. So if you can't figure 
it out blame him. LOL
Mr. Ed
How to make Jaws stop saying blank:

Try the following:
If you want nothing said instead of blank in all applications try the
following:

1. Open the Settings Center insert + 6, then press, control, shift, + D, to 
open Settings Center default all applications.
2. Arrow down to, punctuation closed..., right arrow to open, down arrow to, 
customize punctuation...., & press the spacebar to open.  Make sure you press 
the spacebar to open & not enter. Pressing enter will close the Settings Center.
3. Tab to the Advanced button & press spacebar to open.  The first item in the 
list will be, blank, so tab 1 time to, edit description.... button, & press the 
spacebar to open.  The word, blank, will be in this edit field.
Delete the word, blank, put a space with the spacebar, & press enter.
4. Tab to okay, press the spacebar, tab to okay, press the spacebar, tab to 
apply, press the spacebar, tab to okay, press the spacebar to save your changes 
& close the Settings Center.

If you don't want this in all applications, open the desired applications 
individually & use the above steps in each application.  HTH

Hi Fanus,

First, make sure your screen is maximized.  As for the Jaws cursor, someone 
that uses Windows 10 as their primary system will be able to answer better than 
myself, but with my limited experience using Jaws with Windows 10 the Jaws 
cursor can't be used the way it could be used with Windows 7 or XP.  It seems 
that the touch cursor is being used more & more often in Windows 10, but I 
don't have the knowledge to tell you why that is.  All I can say is that I sure 
wish the Jaws cursor had the same functionality in Win 10 as in previous 
operating systems.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hello Mike
Thanks for the explanation but my question is then whether the onboard display 
card has an effect. My problem is that irrespective of which screen resolution 
I use most of the time the jaws cursor just says “blank, blank, blank”. So, is 
this caused by the display which is too old or the onboard sound card. I shall 
like to replace which ever to be able to use the jaws cursor properly. I use 
Windows 10 with the latest version of jaws but this was the case with windows 
8.1 as well.
Regards
Fanus

Hi Justin,

First my non computer lingo crap explanation.  Running Windows 7 & 10 Pro 64 
bit, with Jaws 16 thru J2018:
I will use this particular example with System Restore.  If you go into System 
Restore, there's a checkbox that you need to check in order to see more restore 
points than 1 or 2.  If I have my screen resolution set very high, I can't find 
this checkbox, but if I lower the resolution I can find it using the Jaws 
cursor.  I know my settings are different than others, so people please don't 
start flooding the list with comparisons because we all have various 
experiences that others call hogwash, & I'm not trying to argue with anyone, 
only stating my personal experiences.

Simple explanation from the internet:

It is usually quoted as width × height, with the units in pixels: for example, 
"1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels.
This example would normally be spoken as "ten twenty-four by seven sixty-eight" 
or "ten twenty-four by seven six eight".

The most important thing is not the monitor size, but its ability to display 
the higher resolution images. The higher you set the resolution, the smaller 
the images on the screen will be, and there comes a point at which the text on 
the screen becomes so small it's not readable. On a larger monitor it is 
possible to push the resolution very high indeed, but if that monitor's pixel 
density is not up to par, you won't get the maximum possible resolution before 
the image becomes unreadable. In many cases the monitor will not display 
anything at all, if you tell Windows to use a resolution the monitor cannot 
handle.
In other words, don't expect miracles out of a cheap monitor. When it comes to 
high-definition displays, you definitely get what you pay for.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

What does screen resolution do with jaws? Can we tell the difference while
using JAWS?

Hi All,

I'm helping someone set-up a Windows 7 32 bit computer, and he'll probably
be using Jaws versions 13, 14, or 15.  At what version did Jaws stop using,
1024 × 768, as the default screen resolution setting?  Thank y'all very
much.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!
