Subject: repairing hard disk errors

My computer seems to be running OK. However, I keep getting a message that
says Windows has detected a hard disk error. I am running carbonite, so
that should take care of backup.



The one program I know about is chkdsk/f. I had to run it as part of my
boot up. It doesn't give me a report. I just end up where I usually do,
and I'm still getting the same error message.



Does anyone know of a program I can use to try to find and correct whatever
problem, if any, I have? The famous Norton Disk Doctor is no more, and
there's a plethora of freeware.



Abby

Re: Demystifying Firefox Bookmarks

Steve Matzura
 

Sorry, it didn't. Where have all the bookmarks gone that were imported
from Internet Explorer when I installed FF in the first place?
Sometimes they're visible, sometimes not. I thought they would appear
under "Unsorted bookmarks". I found out that they appear under the
bookmarks menu tree branch. Very odd, but they're all there.

Hi, Steve. Here's what I did when I first installed Firefox. I went to
bookmarks with shift Control B. Then I tabbed over to All Bookmarks and
opened it by using Right Arrow. Then I arrowed down past the toolbar. Here
you can make a folder by pressing the Alt key and arrowing down to Make New
Folder. I called my folder General. Under this folder I placed all my
bookmarks. After that, all I had to do to look at my bookmarks is Control
Shift B. Tab to All Bookmarks. Then press the letter G to open General
Bookmarks. Now that it is open, I can just arrow down through all the
bookmarks.

I hope this helps you.

Could somebody please explain to me how to navigate bookmarks in
Firefox version 18 with at least JAWS 13? I know to start you press
Shift+Control+B, but then what? I can find the Unsorted Bookmarks
branch of the tree view, but then what? How do I find all the stored
Bookmarks after that? This used to be so easy in Internet Explorer.
There's probably some trick I'm missing.

Re: How to work on MS office on a Mac

Steve Matzura
 

I am by no means an expert on this subject, but I'm happy to tell you
what I know. Hope it helps you.

The operating system for Macintosh computers, called OSX, is not the
same as the operating system that runs on computers using Microsoft
Windows. Therefore, no program that works in Windows will work in OSX.
However, as was said, you can install the Windows operating system
onto a Macintosh computer in one of two ways: (1) You can "share" the
computer between the two operating systems while it's running. That's
the VMWare approach. (2) You can use an OSX program called Boot Camp
to install Windows next to, or "side by side," with OSX and, when you
start your Macintosh computer, choose whether to boot OSX or Windows.
The good part of the second choice is that no parts of the
computer--memory, mostly--are shared between the two operating
systems. The good part about choice 1 is that your computer will boot
the Macintosh operating system and, by pressing one key combination,
you can switch back and forth between Windows and OSX all you like.
The bad part about this choice is that the Windows operating system
has to share some of the Macintosh's memory and access to some parts
of the computer, and it doesn't always share these things well. For
instance, some driver software becomes dedicated to OSX and cannot be
shared with Windows that runs at the same time. But if you don't need
these devices, the "virtual machine" approach might be good for you.

Hello all,

I noticed that a few of you are using Mac. I was curious to know how are you
all using JAWS on a Mac. I understand that JAWS does not work on OS 10.
Also, I think that MS Office suite developed for Mac is inaccessible with
Apple's voiceover. If my understanding is correct, How are you all able to
work on MS Office on a Mac?

I am thinking of buying a Mac, and so am eager to hear from you.

Re: JFW friendly Internet relay chat

Last I knew, mIRC with Speech is still the only one worth even trying.
It's easy to set up, but because it has many good features, it's a
little complex to use. But if you're a dedicated IRC'er, you'll get
the hang of it.

Hi John

Microsoft Works has always amazed me why it does not work. I am not sure if it is still shipped with new computers these days but I know it always used to be. I have a version of it on this 3 year old hp windows 7 laptop.

I would ideally like the office suite but the amount I would use it really does not warratnt paying for it.

I use the database on Microsoft works which jaws handles to a fashion and enables me to use it quite well, but I have no luck with the spreadsheet side of the program something simple as tabbing between cells just does not work.

I am pretty sure there are not many people out there using this program, but I felt that to someone who knows what what they are doing could make this a lot better than what it is now.

Hi, you can try the bsc talking clock, it have a basic reminder system
among other clock features, its only 19 dollars, and what I like about
it is that once the reminder come, it will pop up no matter what you
do and wich program you in, and you can choose if you want your jaws
to announce the reminder text or if it must be spoken by the program,
wich uses any SAPI5 voice. Its easy to use and you can easily get to
the system tray icon by deticated build in keystroaks to assure you
get to it quickly. If you need a more advanced reminder they also have
such thing, its all at www.blindsoftware.com

Hi,
I think Adrian recently posted about IE 10 being automatically downloaded.
My Windows 7 computer now has IE 10 on it.
I wasn’t paying attention, so, now, have it.
I am using the latest version of Jaws 14.
Overall, I have not seen many problems, with one exception.
Ebay seems to hang at times, and Jaws is frozen.
I am not happy about that, but other websites seem to work okay.

Re: Which Microsoft Office?

Delaunay Christophe <christophe.delaunay@...>
 

Hi Robert,

I'm currently using Office 2010 with jaws 13. It is quite nice but I got a problem when attempting to organize a meeting.

For a sighted person, it is quite simple: you enter all the attendees you want. Then, you specify a period of time which is acceptable for you. Then, you have a global sight of the attendees' availability within this amount of time. In this situation, organizing a meeting is as simple as choosing the time at which all attendees are available.

Now, for a blind person, it is not so easy since jaws, (at least the version 13 I'm using here), does not render the availability of attendees. At least, I could not figure out how to obtain this information with jaws yet.

Also, I don't know what happens with Office 2013 and jaws 14. I only think it is a point to check.

Have a nice day. ChD

I meant Outlook for an organizer.

So I guess this is 2 questions. Which version of Outlook works best
with Jaws 14 and which version of Office is easiest with Jaws 14.

Office is the best organizer calander available. I figure I may as
well get Word and learn XL too. Might actually be useful.

Office Home and Business 2010 is a better deal but how long will it be
supported?

Re: Trusteer Rapport software

I found out afterwards that the web site says that screen reader users should not install this software. I had to get sighted help to uninstall this, since it took over any web browsing I tried to do.
