Hi,
I have used it on my laptop for years now, and I've never had an issue with it. That's odd that it would do that. Maybe there was something else on your machine. On my newer desktop and laptop, I use Avast. The latest version seems pretty good. However, I be interested for other ideas. Something else that works better than Avast. Thanks, A

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for a system image /backup and anti virus software
solution compatible with JAWS and Windows 8.
I have asked people who recommended Norton Ghost, but on investigation
it is not compatible with Windows 8.
Also, I have used Avast in the past for a anti virus solution, so I'm
just curious is there anything better?

I am seeking this information because I am purchasing a new laptop for
my Masters programme and I want to future proof it.

Any information /suggestions are very welcome.

Kind regards,

Niall

From what I've been reading, Avast is doing a better job. I have actually found things with Avast, that MSE has failed to detect.

HI, Sally.

well, for sound games that are really realistic and fun, I find that GMA
games is a blast. You can download free demo versionsoversions of them and
play for quite some time but headphones are needed for playing properly.
They're sound-oriented and may be fun for her to try. I can't remember the
other game sites there are, but there several, though some sites have a lot
broken links I find, or aren't interesting at all, as in not very
challenginchallenging. OThersOthers using JAWS has a lot of bugs in thethem
but really, it all comes down personal preference as to what is fun and not
fun, and so on.
I hope this at least gives you a lead.

Happy gaming

Just show your student the website, and have them go through the quick

are so many games, she will just want to read the descriptions.
Some browser based games are City of loathing, worriers 2 and Legend

Swamp is the most popular audio game, although it takes some downloading.
Alter Aeon and Meteria Magica are the two more popular Muds among the

those.

Telnet is annoying.

Re: System image and anti-virus software for Windows 8

This good old machine is a desktop. They have some of the world's poorest tech support, but I guess you don't need tech support when the thing just keeps perking along. The only way I know about the tech support was I had some questions early in the game, one of which they were able to answer, and the other of which I found on my own, quite by accident--great hardware, though.

Hi Ted,
My XP machine was a Dell and I also used a wireless keyboard as I didn't like having to use the laptop layout for JAWS.
About all I can say about the HP laptops is that there a couple of places on the top of the keyboard just under the screen which turn on and off all kinds of things and those places seem to be heat sensative.
You don't have to press anything, just pass your hand across the area and you have had it. (LOLLOLLOL) My wife has a year newer HP than I do and her keyboard on the laptop itself is set to make the F keys media ready. F7 does not call on the spell checker.

I would suggest Security Essentials from Microsoft but it does not work on Windows 8. alternately, Windows 8 does come with a modified version of MSE which is compatible with Windows 8 and is called Windows Defender.

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for a system image /backup and anti virus software solution compatible with JAWS and Windows 8.
I have asked people who recommended Norton Ghost, but on investigation it is not compatible with Windows 8.
Also, I have used Avast in the past for a anti virus solution, so I'm just curious is there anything better?

I am seeking this information because I am purchasing a new laptop for my Masters programme and I want to future proof it.

Any information /suggestions are very welcome.

Kind regards,

Niall

Hi,
I have used MSE on my XP laptop for some time and had no problems.
I now use MSE on myW7 HP 64 bit laptop and it works quite well.

Hello Niall, here is a link you might be interested in.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c03481733&lc=en&cc=us&dl
c=en#N91
It is the procedure to backup system files on an HP laptop and I'm pretty
sure it will give you an idea what you would be in for.
As for Windows Defender, it is the same as Microsoft Security Essentials
(MSE). It's not a bad program and it is built in to windows 8 whereas MSE
was a separate program for prior versions of Windows.
It's better than nothing, but I would definitely try to find a better
security suite since the reviews of Windows Defender are quite mixed.

any better than any other package but it will do I'm thinking.

Re: MSE and JAWS

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Bill,

Below is a MSSE navigation guide I've saved:

Because list members ask, from time to time, how to work with Microsoft
Security Essentials, I
have provided a quick guide. I don't discuss every quirk you will find as
you look around and there are some settings I don't explain but this is
enough material to give you most of the knowledge you need to work with
the program and is more than enough to allow you to start using it as a
beginning user.

To begin, let's find a good place to start working from in the interface..
You may not wish to do this as you gain experience using the program but
for now, after you open the program, tab to the home button.
Now tab through the items until you return to the home button.
Pay close attention to the structures your screen-reader tells you you are
in. For example, the first item will be a radio button that will indicate
the kind of scan that will be performed. If you want to perform a
different kind of scan, use the up and down arrows to select a different
radio button. Continuing to tab will place you on a scan now button and a
change my scan schedule link. You will then return to the home button.

You can now either left or right arrow from button to button. Once you
get back to the home button, you can go through all the buttons again. In
other words, either right or left arrowing will move you through all the
buttons as many times as you wish.

You don't have to press the space bar on these buttons. Moving to them
causes the screen to change and items related to the button you move to
will be displayed.
You get from the button to the items by tabbing. For example, if you
right arrow once from the home button, you will be on a button that says
update. To perform an update, tab once to another button that says
update. You will also hear alt u announced as the short cut. this is the
only item you can work with. If
you tab again, you will be returned to the first update button again. So,
if you want to update the definitions, and perhaps the program would
update as well, you would tab to the update button that takes the action
and press the space bar.

for now, tab back to the button that says update and does not say alt u.
You are now back on the buttons we have been working with. Right arrow
once. You are now on a button that says history. If you tab you will get
to radio buttons that determine what will be shown. I haven't had any
items removed or detected from scans I've done so I haven't been able to
review the history. Down arrow through the items to see what they are.
It appears to me that you may have to move to an item if you want to
change what is displayed, then use the JAWS cursor or the Mouse Pointer in
Window-eyes or equivalent in other screen-readers to review the screen.
I'm not sure about that, however. If you ever get lost, leave the virtual
mouse if your screen-reader requires this to return to the application
cursor, then tab until you get back to the history button.

Return to the history button now and right arrow to the next button. You
are now on the settings button.
Tab once.
You are in a list. Don't do anything in the list yet. Tab once and you
will see a check box you can change that applies to the first setting you
were on. Continue to tab back to the list. Down arrow once. Tab and you
will see items related to the item you moved to in the list. You

can down arrow through the items and tab around to see the available
settings for each item in the list. Unless you understand the settings,
don't change them. One thing you will see is a cancel button. Unless you
have made changes, you can just tab until you get to the settings button
again and move to another button. If you haven't changed anything,
canceling is not necessary, just moving to a different button will leave
the settings as they were.

Now, tab back to the settings button and move to the right. You are on a
help button. It may be that you need to be connected to the Internet for
this button to do anything. My computer running Microsoft Security
Essentials is not connected to the Internet now and moving to this button
doesn't do anything. You can look around on your computer to see what
happens. the same is true for the next button to the right, which is
named something like additional help options.
Right arrowing again returns you to the home button, where you started.

When you are on the home button, you can use your screen-reader's read
status line command to hear when the last scan was conducted and what kind
of scan it was.
If you move the JAWS cursor or equivalent to the bottom of the screen and
move up the screen somewhat, you will see a line of text telling you when
the last definitions were created. In other words, you can hear how
current your definitions are.

Remember that if you get confused as to where you are, tabbing will return
you to the row of buttons that stretch across the screen from left to
right, the home, update history, settings, etc. buttons we have been
working with. Whether you have to tab one time or perhaps four times, you
will get there so you can't get very lost in the program.


Take care.
Mike

I have a couple of questions about MSE and JAWS. A friend of mine has MSE,

how to inquire of MSE which files are the threats with JAWS?

Also, how does one navigate to the settings tab of MSE?

When you say work computer, is this in an office environment or is the work

If at a company office, I'd contact your it people and let them know. If at

Hi folks. I'm having a strange issue connecting to my wireless network.
That is when I have the security enabled. My work computer refuses to
connect to it. When I hit connect, I get the option to click on the
troubleshooting link. Doing this does not resolve the issue. It is a
windows 7 system, and I'm using JAWS 13. I do not believe this is a JAWS
issue, but since the blind computing list is gone, I didn't know where else
to post my question. I wondered if anyone could tell me what
setting/settings I need to check, so that my computer will connect to the
network. Again, when I remove the security feature, and just leave the
network open, it connects to that, without a problem. It happens when I
enable my security, and try to type in my security key. Very weird!

System image and anti-virus software for Windows 8

Niall Gallagher
 

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for a system image /backup and anti virus software solution compatible with JAWS and Windows 8.
I have asked people who recommended Norton Ghost, but on investigation it is not compatible with Windows 8.
Also, I have used Avast in the past for a anti virus solution, so I'm just curious is there anything better?

I am seeking this information because I am purchasing a new laptop for my Masters programme and I want to future proof it.

Any information /suggestions are very welcome.

Kind regards,

Niall
