    SAP JAWS Screen Reader Extension Installation and Configuration For JAWS 11

    This document is intended to be distributed with the appropriate SAP Screen Reader Extension file.

    This file can be identified by its name, typically SAPxsrx_XX.zip. Where XX is the version number.

    If this file is not with this document or you need to check if an updated file exists, please check the following resources.

    The IES Adaptive Technology web site;

    http://www.ies.state.pa.us/ -Adaptive Technology Technical Information

    Or contact

    This document makes the assumption that Freedom Scientific JAWS screen reader software, version 11, SAPGUI 710 and Adobe Reader version 9 or above are installed.

If all the above components are installed go to SAP Screen Reader Installation

    below. If any components are not installed, or for additional information, please review the six steps below.

    1. It is suggested that you give temporary local admin rights to the user prior to

    installation and then log on as the user to do the installation and configuration.

    Local admin rights may be removed after all is installed.

    2. Install Jaws screen reader software per Freedom Scientific instructions.

    3. Next, install the latest SAPGUI version 710 and any patches. Both the

    executables and installation manual can be downloaded from the IES web site

    with the link listed on the previous page; http://www.ies.state.pa.us/

    4. There is and Accessibility User option for the SAP Logon INI. If you missed

    the option during the installation you can use the “SAP Logon INI Change”

    option off of the Start > Programs > SAP Front End with tools menu. This

    option sets the choices displayed on the GUI logon screen. For most ESS /

    SSS AT users this setting is not critical. For those using the GUI without ESS

    or SSS (such as timekeeping) this setting may be more important.

    5. After the SAPGUI is installed you will need to install the screen reader

    extensions. Save the SAPxsrx_XX.zip (where XX is the version number) file to

    the local hard drive or the desktop.

    6. Install Adobe Reader. In order for a Pay Statement to display properly for a

    JAWS user the image has to appear in a new window. To configure Adobe

    reader for a JAWS user: Start Adobe Reader, Go to the menu bar, File >

    Edit > Preferences > Internet > uncheck Display PDF in Browser. Ok>. SAP Screen Reader Installation

    SAP SREs work with JAWS 11 but their installation script was created by SAP prior to the existence of JAWS 10. As a result, the SRE installation does not recognize the correct JAWS directories. JAWS 8 demo version (no license needed) needs to be loaded prior to installation of the SRE and then removed after installation of SRE. JAWS 8 demo version can be found on the JAWS freedom Scientific web site at the following URL.

    http://www.freedomscientific.com/downloads/jaws/JAWS-previous-downloads.asp

    and we recommend using the JAWS 8 FTP download.

Process

    It is suggested that you give temporary local admin rights to the user prior to installation and then log on as the user to do the installation and configuration.

    Local admin rights may be removed after all is installed.

    Install JAWS 8 demo version using the default settings.

    Verify no previous SRE installed. You can tell if SREs were previously installed (not likely on a new image but very possible on an older PC image) by looking at settings control panel add/remove programs for SAP Screen reader extensions in the “Ss”.

    Load them if they are not there, but if they are there they should be uninstalled first because they are likely an older version of the SRE. In image below you can see SREs are not installed.

Start installation of the SAP SRE by running the file XSRX_XX

    If you get the following screen when installing you will likely need to verify that you have correctly installed JAWS 8 or that SREs are not already loaded..

When you get the screen below, proceed.

    Select (check) the SRE box and select next

    There are two sets of files which must be installed in directories you must browse to locate and select for the SRE to function with JAWS 11

The directory will appear as below.

To install for JAWS 11 you must browse to:

    Program files\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\11.0

    Select next.

For the next set of files the directory will appear as below.

    Note Application Data is a hidden folder and default view options may need to be changed to view it when you browse. To change default view options; Control Panel, Tools > Folder Options > View > Hidden files and Folders > Hidden files and folders radio button, check. Apply.

To install for JAWS 11 you must browse to:

    Documents and settings\All Users\Application Data\Freedom Scientific\Jaws\11.0 Select Next

You should receive the completed installation message Select done.

    Verify SREs installed by using add/remove programs in the control panel.

Uninstall JAWS 8.0

    When the uninstall is complete go into Control Panel and use the "SAP Configuration" tool. Choose the tool and select "Use Classic Design" then select "Use Accessibility Mode" > apply > OK.

    Reboot the PC.

    Log on as the user (still with local admin rights), make sure JAWS is started.

Start SAP by selecting SAP Logon icon.

    Select the Scripting tab and verify “Scripting is installed” and that “Enable Scripting” is the only check box selected.

Select Apply / OK and close all SAP windows.

    Restart SAP by selecting SAP Logon on the desktop. Note Jaws should still be running. Your SAP Logon should look similar to this:

Select any “Z – SSON” system.

After selecting a system you should have a screen similar to this.

    On this screen press the following key combinations. Insert + 6. That is the Insert key and the numeral 6 key, the numeral 6 key must be the one on the main keyboard NOT the one on the number pad.

    You should now have a Jaws Configuration Manager screen that looks like this. Take note the heading on this window is sapfront.jcf … if it has ANY file name other than this STOP, something is wrong and continuing will possibly make Jaws unusable.
