Important Note for Users of StationPlaylist Studio and JAWS 13

If you are using the JAWS scripts for StationPlaylist Studio available from this website, and you have updated JAWS version 13 to the April hotfix (build 852), you are likely to experience problems when the computer restarts following the installation of the update.

In summary, JAWS will periodically announce "unknown function call", followed by "Get List View Field Info". Because the StationPlaylist Studio scripts utilise functionality within the default JAWS scripts, essentially the older default set is taking priority over the newer version which in turn is causing a conflict.

To remedy this situation, please work through the following procedure prior to updating JAWS to the April hotfix:

  • Select the Windows Start Menu.
  • Select All Programs or Programs.
  • Select JAWS 13.
  • Select Explore JAWS.
  • Select Explore My Settings.
  • This will bring focus to a folder containing a number of files. Press the Down Arrow key until JAWS announces a file named starting with the word "Default". All files with a "Default" prefix should be deleted, such as "Default.JSB". Note that also you will find files with a prefix of "Default_FS". These too should be deleted.
  • When the files are deleted, press ALT+F4 to close down the list view window and return focus to the Windows Desktop.
  • Update to JAWS 13.0.852 from the Freedom Scientific website.
  • When the computer restarts following the installation procedure, download and install the scripts for StationPlaylist Studio from this website. The installer will make the necessary modifications to JAWS to ensure you do not receive the error messages.

If for whatever reason you have updated JAWS 13 to build 852 prior to reading this post, and you are receiving unknown function calls:

  • Select the Windows Start Menu.
  • Select All Programs or Programs.
  • Select JAWS 13.
  • Select Explore JAWS.
  • Select Explore My Settings.
  • This will bring focus to a folder containing a number of files. Press the Down Arrow key until JAWS announces a file named starting with the word "Default". All files with a "Default" prefix should be deleted, such as "Default.JSB". Note that also you will find files with a prefix of "Default_FS". These too should be deleted.
  • When the files are deleted, press ALT+F4 to close down the list view window and return focus to the Windows Desktop.
  • Restart the computer or the JAWS program, whichever is preferred.
  • When the computer restarts , download and install the scripts for StationPlaylist Studio from this website. The installer will make the necessary modifications to JAWS to ensure you do not receive the error messages.
