Re: buttons on touch pad using dell lattitude

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

Dave,
I'm positive that it used to work.
As a matter a fact, all of the other combinations with the fn and function
keys do what it suppose to do accept this one.
I can't seem to find a way to disable this darn thing lol.
I was told from someone that I might have to install something called the
del quickset.

Kimsan,

Strange. That key combination is supposed to be hardware-dependent and not
affected by any operating system. you sure that it used to work on your
Latitude? What model do you have?

I mistyped the keystroke.
FN F5 used to work but again, after upgrading to win 8 back in October, that
keystroke was no longer working.
Need to figure out a quick way to enable and disable this stuff because my
students use this dell machine at times.
Back to google!

Kimsan,

On my Latitude I use the Fn key Plus F5 to route through the
disabling/enabling choices for the touchpad and touchstick. I do not know if
the buttons can be individually enabled without the touchpad.

In my case, I turn off all the touch-enabled devices, as they drive me
crazy.

Hi,

Can someone who uses a dell latitude try and provide insturctions on how to
disable the buttons that are underneath the touchpad.

I type mouse in the control panel then forget where to go from there lol.

I also went into device manager and looked under mouse and other pointing
devices to see if I can disable it that way but there is only an uninstall
option.

The keystroke use to be alt F5 but ever since upgrading to windows eight
that is no longer working.

Thanks

Hey,

Thanks to the person who suggested setting a sound to play for capital letters with the Vocalizer voices. I'm back to using Samantha! :)

Have a great day all.

Subject: Problem reading capital letters using Vocaliser Samantha voice

Hi,

I have the latest version of jaws v14 and am now using the Vocaliser US Samantha High Premium voice.

Eloquence had started crashing my Windows 7 64 bit computer far too often after the latest JFW14 upgrade so I have switched to Vocaliser and no crashes anymore.

However Jaws is no longer indicating capital letters either when typing (I have read by character on for typing) or when reading text even character by character. There is no change in pitch and it doesn't say cap like it did when using eloquence.

I have made no changes except swapping over to Vocaliser voice.

Any idea what could be going wrong? Are others having a similar problem at all? Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks,
Dale.

You should contact dell support and ask them. They build the thing, they
must provide it, or if you got any documentation with it, check there, but
these days they don't really give alot of documents with, not even a windows

Subject: Re: good registry cleaner

Hi Mike, Adrian and all,

I looked a Wise cleaner more carefully, and I have found it somewhat
accessible using Mike and Adrian's advice. I was originally using the Wise
Care 365, which includes more tools than Wise Cleaner; however, it is not
accessible at all. You can go ahead and download Wise Cleaner from CNET at:

http://download.cnet.com/Wise-Registry-Cleaner/3000-2086_4-10605508.html?par
t=dl-&subj=dl&tag=butto

Go ahead and run the program. Next you have to allow it to run the program.
Go ahead and allow it. At this point you will land on the "Set Up Window."
Find the "next button" or press "alt+N" to go to the next window. Now you
should be at the "agreement window." Read and agree to the terms and press
"Next." You can press next on the next window as well unless you want to
subscribe to the Wise Cleaner newsletter. Also press the next button to go
to the next window unless you want to change where Wise Cleaner is installed
by default. On the next window, you can choose to create or not create a
start menu entry. Whatever yourchoice, press next. On the next window you
can also choose to create a destop shortcut. Again, make your choice and
press next. Now you should be at the instalation window. Find the instal
button or press Alt+I. Next you should get a window that says, "Wise Disk
Cleaner is a user friendly, fast and easy to use application developed to
free up disk space by deleting junk files that are no longer used by any
software on your system. Both Wise Registry Cleaner and Wise Disk Cleaner
are designed to be used in tandem, allowing users to streamline their
Windows Registry and optimize their hard drive. We recommend to run Wise
Disk Cleaner before Wise Registry Cleaner." Go ahead and press next. On the
next window, you have the finish button, go ahead and press finish. It will
next take you to the Wise Cleaner website. Now you have to download and
installed Disk Cleaner as recommended in the message above. I'm not writing
the steps to installing it since it's similar to the steps above.
Alturnitively, you can download it from CNET at:

http://download.cnet.com/Wise-Disk-Cleaner/3000-2094_4-10613345.html?part=dl
-&subj=dl&tag=button

Now go ahead and open Wise Disk Cleaner. At this point, You should be at the
choose your language dialog box. Here you have to Rout JAWS to PC by
pressing JAWS key plus Dash on your numpad. Once you have done this, press
control+End key to get to the bottom . Now you want to make sure you're on
the ok button. Here you want to press "Slash from your numpad.
This will take you to the next window, which I believe is the newsletter
sign up window. I honestly didn't mess around with it since I don't want to
sign up. I doubt that you'll have success if you want to sign up. If you're
on this window, I would just press "Alt+f4. Thereby, you'll land on the
"Wise Disk Cleaner" interface.

Now it's time to run Wise Disk Cleaner, so rout JAWS to PC. Using your down
arrow key, find the "Start Scan" button, and press the "Slash" key to
activate it. Once the scan is done, it will give you the results. You should
find the Start Cleaning button, and press "Slash" to clean it.
Next it will say, "Cleanup was completed. Close it up.

Now it's time to run Wise Registry Cleaner. Go ahead and open it up. The
first thing you will see after the allow notification is going to be the
"Choose your Language dialog Box." Follow the same stepps above used with
Wise Disk Cleaner. It's the same deal with this program. You also get the
newsletter window after pressing the ok button in the choose your language
dialog box. Presss Control+F4 and launge Wise Registry cleaner again. Rout
JAWS to PC, and find the "Start Scan" button. Press "Slash, and wait until
it's done. Once it's finished, it will give you the results. If it finds
issues, press the "Start Cleaning" button. I hope you guys find this
helpful. It might not be good at all, but I have done my best. If I had a
good recording device, I would've done an audio file, but I don't. Either
way, I hope this works. Thanks,

A

the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor, but now that you brought it up, it
does seem to be reading it. I'm not sure if you can actually activate

Hi Tom,
Much respect to you. You could very well be correct and I could be
wrong. I have always looked at the Registry as the part that keeps
your computer running, and tells your computer what to do when
certain events occur. I appreciate your reply.Mechanic is definitely
great. I used to have it, but I no longer do. Thanks, A On

Hi,
Actually, the registry isn't a program that runs and executes
instructions. Think of it more as something like a convoluted
database that stores an inventory of your existing hardware and
software and related settings. In the early days of Windows there
was a registry, but a lot of this information was stored in
initialization files which were essentially straight text files
with a .ini extension. These files would be scattered all over the
place, and if, through a program error or just plain user error
these files got destroyed or relocated, all sorts of weird things
could happen. So as time went by, the registry grew both in size
and complexity. It's nothing to trifle with, and it's always a good
idea to back it up first before using any kind of cleaner program
or, heaven forbid, using the registry editor to do any tweaking.


Another good registry cleaner that I've heard highly recommended is
Registry Mechanic. It's not freeware and I don't have a link to
it, but I'm sure a Google search will turn up something about it.

Hi everyone,
I'm just going to throw this out there. It's often not the fault
of a program. Sometimes it's better to live certain parts of the
computer if you do not know much about it specially your registry.
Your registry is what keeps your computer running. The registry is
what executes orders for your computer when certain events occur.
There are various things which could eventually slow down your
PC's performance. As some of you know, if you use your computer a
lot, a lot of unnecessary and unwanted information gets written to
your registry. Furthermore, updating, uninstalling, or installing
software on your computer will affect your computers performance over
time.
Registry cleaners can of course help sort some of these issues,
but you should always be aware of what you are doing. If you don't
have experiences with the registry, leave it alone, or ask some
one who has experience. The registry is dangerous if you don't
know what you are doing. One mistake can cause your PC to stop
working. I have seen various cases in which they didn't know what
they were doing, so I had to reinstall Windows all over again. The
point that I'm trying to make is that if you don't know much about
the registry, please leave it alone. Always keep in mind that
registry cleaners are less than perfect. There's always a chance
that registry cleaners may remove needed data during the cleaning
process. Leaving it alone will prevent you from unwanted
headaches. However, if you really want to do it, than by all means
do, but always do a registry backup, or Google it if you don't
know what it is. Note that I'm not throwing it to bother anyone.
For those interested in a good registry cleaner, check out the
link below. It's an awesome one, but be sure to ask someone if you
lack the knowledge, backup registry, or Google it before any
actions. Thanks, A

one thing I don't like about CCleaner is that it does not give
enough information about the registry items it finds. I didn't
find that part of the program to helpful. It's good at cleaning
unwanted files but I leave the registry alone now.

Also, Despite all advice from blind users, I am unable to select
items in the registry to remove with the space bar and have to
use the mouse cursor instead.

Someone mentioned another program called Abexo. Interesting that
download.com does not have it. I wanted to see how popular it is
and what sort of reviews people have about Abexo. I found lots
through a web search but don't know the sources enough to trust them.

I just tried a couple programs that supposed to clean and

Now it's time to run Wise Disk Cleaner, so rout JAWS to PC. Using your down arrow key, find the "Start Scan" button, and press the "Slash" key to activate it. Once the scan is done, it will give you the results. You should find the Start Cleaning button, and press "Slash" to clean it. Next it will say, "Cleanup was completed. Close it up.

Now it's time to run Wise Registry Cleaner. Go ahead and open it up. The first thing you will see after the allow notification is going to be the "Choose your Language dialog Box." Follow the same stepps above used with Wise Disk Cleaner. It's the same deal with this program. You also get the newsletter window after pressing the ok button in the choose your language dialog box. Presss Control+F4 and launge Wise Registry cleaner again. Rout JAWS to PC, and find the "Start Scan" button. Press "Slash, and wait until it's done. Once it's finished, it will give you the results. If it finds issues, press the "Start Cleaning" button. I hope you guys find this helpful. It might not be good at all, but I have done my best. If I had a good recording device, I would've done an audio file, but I don't. Either way, I hope this works. Thanks,

Hi Ariel,

for me. I had never heard of Wise Clener & liked what you had to say
about it & would have been interested in trying it out if it were more

telling them about the lack of accessibility their program presents for the

Hi Mike,
I have done what you suggested, and unfortunately neither one worked. I

Hi Mike,
As of now, I'm using the Wise Care 365, which includes the registry
cleaner and drive wiper. I didn't try accessing the menus by routing the
JAWS cursor to the PC cursor, but now that you brought it up, it does
seem to be reading it. I'm not sure if you can actually activate the
check for issues button or whatever it's called, but it might be worth
trying. If you have some tips of how to go about it, shoot them my way,
I'll be more than glad to try it out. You can write me off list at

Hi Tom,
Much respect to you. You could very well be correct and I could be
wrong. I have always looked at the Registry as the part that keeps your
computer running, and tells your computer what to do when certain events
occur. I appreciate your reply.Mechanic is definitely great. I used to
have it, but I no longer do. Thanks,

Hi,
Actually, the registry isn't a program that runs and executes
instructions. Think of it more as something like a convoluted database
that stores an inventory of your existing hardware and software and
related settings. In the early days of Windows there was a registry,
but a lot of this information was stored in initialization files which
were essentially straight text files with a .ini extension. These
files would be scattered all over the place, and if, through a program
error or just plain user error these files got destroyed or relocated,
all sorts of weird things could happen. So as time went by, the
registry grew both in size and complexity. It's nothing to trifle
with, and it's always a good idea to back it up first before using any
kind of cleaner program or, heaven forbid, using the registry editor
to do any tweaking.


Another good registry cleaner that I've heard highly recommended is
Registry Mechanic. It's not freeware and I don't have a link to it,
but I'm sure a Google search will turn up something about it.

Hi everyone,
I'm just going to throw this out there. It's often not the fault of a
program. Sometimes it's better to live certain parts of the computer
if you do not know much about it specially your registry. Your
registry is what keeps your computer running. The registry is what
executes orders for your computer when certain events occur. There
are various things which could eventually slow down your PC's
performance. As some of you know, if you use your computer a lot, a
lot of unnecessary and unwanted information gets written to your
registry. Furthermore, updating, uninstalling, or installing software
on your computer will affect your computers performance over time.
Registry cleaners can of course help sort some of these issues, but
you should always be aware of what you are doing. If you don't have
experiences with the registry, leave it alone, or ask some one who
has experience. The registry is dangerous if you don't know what you
are doing. One mistake can cause your PC to stop working. I have seen
various cases in which they didn't know what they were doing, so I
had to reinstall Windows all over again. The point that I'm trying to
make is that if you don't know much about the registry, please leave
it alone. Always keep in mind that registry cleaners are less than
perfect. There's always a chance that registry cleaners may remove
needed data during the cleaning process. Leaving it alone will
prevent you from unwanted headaches. However, if you really want to
do it, than by all means do, but always do a registry backup, or
Google it if you don't know what it is. Note that I'm not throwing it
to bother anyone. For those interested in a good registry cleaner,
check out the link below. It's an awesome one, but be sure to ask
someone if you lack the knowledge, backup registry, or Google it
before any actions. Thanks,
A

one thing I don't like about CCleaner is that it does not give
enough information about the registry items it finds. I didn't find
that part of the program to helpful. It's good at cleaning unwanted
files but I leave the registry alone now.

Also, Despite all advice from blind users, I am unable to select
items in the registry to remove with the space bar and have to use
the mouse cursor instead.

Someone mentioned another program called Abexo. Interesting that
download.com does not have it. I wanted to see how popular it is
and what sort of reviews people have about Abexo. I found lots
through a web search but don't know the sources enough to trust them.

I just tried a couple programs that supposed to clean and optimize
but they were not accessible without scripting.
One was System Checkup 3.3 iolo technologies, LLC 12/5/2012
The other was SlimCleaner Free

Hi Mike,
I also use CCleaner on one of my machines. It works pretty good for the most part. I have also written to them, but no luck. However, it's mostly accessible with JAWS and other screen readers. I will be writing a message in a few minutes about Wise Disk Cleaner and Wise Registry Cleaner. Thanks,

Can someone who uses a dell latitude try and provide insturctions on how to

I type mouse in the control panel then forget where to go from there lol.

I also went into device manager and looked under mouse and other pointing
devices to see if I can disable it that way but there is only an uninstall
option.

The keystroke use to be alt F5 but ever since upgrading to windows eight
that is no longer working.

Re: buttons on touch pad using dell lattitude

You should contact dell support and ask them. They build the thing,
they must provide it, or if you got any documentation with it, check
there, but these days they don't really give alot of documents with,
not even a windows disk.

On my Latitude I use the Fn key Plus F5 to route through the

if
the buttons can be individually enabled without the touchpad.

In my case, I turn off all the touch-enabled devices, as they drive me

Subject: Problem reading capital letters using Vocaliser Samantha voice

Hi,

I have the latest version of jaws v14 and am now using the Vocaliser US Samantha High Premium voice.

Eloquence had started crashing my Windows 7 64 bit computer far too often after the latest JFW14 upgrade so I have switched to Vocaliser and no crashes anymore.

However Jaws is no longer indicating capital letters either when typing (I have read by character on for typing) or when reading text even character by character. There is no change in pitch and it doesn't say cap like it did when using eloquence.

I have made no changes except swapping over to Vocaliser voice.

Any idea what could be going wrong? Are others having a similar problem at all? Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks,
Dale.

Re: Problem reading capital letters using Vocaliser Samantha voice

Dondi
 

Hi Everyone,

Here's what I do for capital letters in JAWS 13, you might like it. I play a
sound for capital letters.
How to setup JAWS to play a sound when you type a capital letter or arrow
over one.
Press Insert+6 to go to setting center.
Arrow down to speech and schemes.
Right arrow to expand speech and sound schemes out.
Go to modify schemes..
Press space bar.
The dialog box that opens should have your current scheme in the focus.
Tab to edit selected scheme. Press enter.
Should be on general tab.
Control+tab to misc tab.
Arrow down to the second caps choice.
Tab to the radial button and select play sound, to select the radial button
arrow down.
Tab to select wave file button and press enter.
Select wave file to play .
Pressing space bar or alt+P will play the selected wave file.
Press enter when wave file you want is selected.
Tab to ok and press enter.
Tab to save selected scheme and press enter.
Tab to ok and press enter, do this twice.

Yes, that is a good idea, I do wish however, that jaws had the ability to

That would be more useful to address issues like this instead of speech and
sound manager, but for now that is a good way to do it.

Well Jaws should be changed to switch to a different voice for
capitals perhaps as a way of notifying you. Or it could just say cap
T to indicate a capital letter.

Also it does seem to have pitch capability - try typing a question mark ?
and the pitch definitely rises when it reads it back by character.

Re: How to remove jaws 13 and 14 from computer?

Aidan Maher <aidan.smarttalk@...>
 

Weather you do it from programs or control panel, its the same thing,
I'm proud of Emma, that is so rite, choose yes if you want to remove
both versions, unless if you have another product such as openbook
instaled.

On 20/12/2012, Adrian Spratt <Adrian@adrianspratt.com> wrote:
Dave, I thought the preferred method in the case of JAWS was to uninstall
via the programs menu.

1. Go to start menu with Windows key or control+escape.

2. P for programs.

3. Press j until the desired version of JAWS is announced. Press enter.

4. Arrow down to Tools. Press enter.

5. Arrow up to Uninstall. Press enter.

6. Follow prompts, including the query whether you want to delete shared
components.

One note to Addison Gethers. If you want to delete more than one version, I
believe the safer practice is to start with the earlier version. In which
case, rinse, wash, repeat!

Re: Problem reading capital letters using Vocaliser Samantha voice

Dale Reardon <dale@...>
 

Well Jaws should be changed to switch to a different voice for capitals
perhaps as a way of notifying you. Or it could just say cap T to indicate a
capital letter.

Also it does seem to have pitch capability - try typing a question mark ?
and the pitch definitely rises when it reads it back by character.

Dale.

Hi dale..

Unfortunately that's the way it is with the vocalizer voices. They don't
allow for pitch change. I love samantha, but won't use her because of this
limitation.

Hi,

I have the latest version of jaws v14 and am now using the Vocaliser
US Samantha High Premium voice.

Eloquence had started crashing my Windows 7 64 bit computer far too
often after the latest JFW14 upgrade so I have switched to Vocaliser
and no crashes anymore.

However Jaws is no longer indicating capital letters either when
typing (I have read by character on for typing) or when reading text
even character by character. There is no change in pitch and it
doesn't say cap like it did when using eloquence.

I have made no changes except swapping over to Vocaliser voice.

Any idea what could be going wrong? Are others having a similar
problem at all? Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks,
Dale.
