FAQ

1- I Installed Maestro in my Windows but it does not start OR it does not find Java.
Maestro needs Java. In some environments, like Windows, you need to install the Java JSE (not the JRE!). Download it from the link above (at the top of Downloads page).
To verify if there is any Java installed in a Windows environment, one must follow these steps:

  1. Select the Start button or press Windows key in keyboard;
  2. Select the option Control Panel;
  3. Select the Programs option;
  4. Select the Programs and Features option;
  5. Find the search box Search Programs and Features and select it or press the Control and "F" keys simultaneously;
  6. Type the word Java;
  7. Check if it shows any Java installation.

2- Maestro installer stops suddenly in my Windows. It never completes the installation.
Maestro installer is designed for Windows 64. If you are using Windows 32 bits (Windows x86), you need to download the Maestro auto-executable binary, that is the .zip file. This is the same Maestro, but without a need for installation. Just unzip it and run the "maestro.bat" file.

3- The Maestro window content is not being read by my screen reader (NVDA, for example).
There are programs able to read the verbal content of a window. They are called screen readers. If you want to have your Maestro content read by a screen reader, it must be compatible with Java applications. To Windows, a compatible reader is the NVDA. In OS X, its default reader is the Voice Over (which already is found installed in default system set up). There are many others and you can choose the one you like best.
To connect a screen reader, like NVDA, to Maestro, the Java installed in your computer must have, installed and activated, a set of libraries that act as an interface between Java applications and your screen reader. This set of libraries is called Java Access Bridge (from now, JAB). Since Java 7, JAB was embedded to it, not requiring any special installation.
However, in Windows Operating Systems, JAB is not activated by default. So, it must be activate manually. To proceed this task, one must follow these steps:

  1. Select the Start button or press Windows key in keyboard;
  2. Select the option Control Panel;
  3. Select the option Easy of Access;
  4. Select the option Easy of Access Center;
  5. Select the option Use the computer without a display;
  6. Find, in the bottom of the window, the section Other programs installed;
  7. Select the box labeled Enable Java Access Bridge;
  8. Finally, press OK!
