Re: [BCAB] A very off-beat question about JAWS: forcing an error Clive.Lever@kent.gov.uk 14 Nov 2012 17:11 GMT

Hi David,

Yes, I've done this successfully.  What I want to test is whether NVDA is going to allow me to resolve the error message caused by the crash: "Jaws whatever has encountered a problem..." and all that. I want to see if I can use it as a trouble shooting tool, and with your suggestion, once NVDA powers up, there's no trouble to shoot.

Best,
Clive

Clive,

Have you just tried shutting it down deliberately, i.e. jaws key + f4?
Not an error I know but at least you could whack in the usb drive, and get nvda up.

Best,

David.

Hello all,

here's a question which I feel some people may find rather bizarre. Does anyone know of any action one can perform on a Windows XP PC which is bound to cause Jaws to crash?

I'm running JAWS and want to crash it, so that I can test the effectiveness of putting in a Pen Drive with NVDA to trouble-shoot and wake Jaws up again.
Currently, if Jaws suddenly gives me the silent treatment, I have to ring our technicians to get them to connect remotely and bail me out. I'd like to test whether NVDA would obviate the need for me to do this.

Best,
Clive
