Re: Messengers

Desiree Oudinot <turtlepower17@...>
 

Hi,
Thanks for the latest version of the preconfigured Miranda. After a
bit of fiddling, I've mostly got it doing what I want it to do.
However, I have a few questions, and a word of caution about its
installation.
First, the warning: When I installed this program, deleting the German
language pack did NOT force it to revert back to English. It simply
would not run. I had to go to google, type in language packs for
Miranda Instant Messenger, download and paste into the languages
folder a British English pack, and then it ran without a problem. You
are then able to switch back to American English, if you prefer, but
Miranda won't run with an empty languages folder, which makes a bit of
sense.

now, for my questions:
1. Is there a way to permanently change your status message in Aim? At
the moment, it's displaying some kind of default status in what I
assume is German, and each time I sign on, it pops up again. I can't
seem to get rid of it by erasing the edit field, either. My contacts
are probably going to be asking me if I got hacked or something soon,
lol.
2. How can I get the weather plugin to work? I see many options for
configuring it, which I have set to my liking, but I can't find a way
to actually enter a city and state or anything like that. I've looked
everywhere I can think of within the program, but it's eluding me.
3. Is the Speak plugin, which I remember from years ago when I used a
much older version of miranda, still compatible with this version? The
reason I ask is because there appears to be no sound for either
incoming or outgoing messages. I do see a sound event for outgoing
messages, but no sound is assigned to it. I intend to fix this myself,
but the incoming messages are a bit more complicated. There are
options for what looks like incoming typing notifications, and tons of
stuff for group chats, but I don't see anything regarding an actual
sound event for when messages arrive. So, if this is the case, I would
like to not have to guess when I've received a message, and am hoping
that the Speak plugin could remedy this. Incidentally, for those who
don't know, the Speak plugin was a way for Miranda to read messages as
they arrived using Sappi output.

I think that's all I need to know, everything else seems to be running
smoothly. It's less clunky than having both Aim and Skype running,
that's for sure, and for those who have more messengers, I'm sure it's
a real time-saver. So, thanks again for sharing.

It may also be that it will use your system defaults, so that it is in
English anyway.
A portable version can be created by unchecking the boxes for desktop and
start menu shortcuts, and specifying a drive of your choice.
As some parts of Miranda NG are tricky to configure, he configured
everything in the best accessible way, and added some sounds for events that

did not have any previously.
There are many messengers such as ICQ, Skype, Facebook, Yahoo!, and many
more, including other enhancements.

Ed,
I'm using windows 7 with JAWS 15 and I haven't had any problems with notepad. I never stopped using it because of its reliability and simplicity.

Subject: Good old Notepad

I have had occasion, recently, to use good old Notepad.

I remember it used to work pretty well with JAWS.

Now, however, the cursor position isn't reliably reported; the
text is often repeated; and sometimes text that I know is on the
line with the cursor is not read with up arrow or down arrow.

I'm using Windows 7 (work machine) and Jaws 15.

Has anyone else noticed this? When the screen is maximized I
think, on occasion, I get better results, but I wouldn't swear to
it.

I don't remember previously having a problem with Notepad. Plus,
it is so simple that I cannot imagine why JAWS is having these
problems.

I haven't seen the behavior you describe in notepad. I have seen it in
Word, mostly occurring when I open a second word document while
another is already open. I haven't especially noticed the cursor
position problem but will look for it. I frequently have the problem
of Jaws not reading when I arrow up and down in the second document.
Sometimes, usually in fact, I can get the text to read if after
arrowing down I perform a read line command. Very annoying.

I too am using windows 7 and Jaws 15 with office 2013.

Re: Messengers

Hi all,

a guy developed an accessible, preconfigured version of Miranda NG.
Though the installer is on a German page, he said that removing the German language file after installing or extracting the files should switch the software to English.
It may also be that it will use your system defaults, so that it is in English anyway.
A portable version can be created by unchecking the boxes for desktop and start menu shortcuts, and specifying a drive of your choice.
As some parts of Miranda NG are tricky to configure, he configured everything in the best accessible way, and added some sounds for events that did not have any previously.
There are many messengers such as ICQ, Skype, Facebook, Yahoo!, and many more, including other enhancements.

Re: Good old Notepad

Dave...
 

I've experienced exactly the same symptoms. It also happened a couple JAWS
versions in the past, and then it was fixed. Now it's back again and it's
annoying. I use notepad all the time for quick notes and text files.

Maximizing and having word wrap on/off seems to have no effect, along with
changing the font size (and that by the way, is never reported correctly).

Subject: Good old Notepad


I have had occasion, recently, to use good old Notepad.

I remember it used to work pretty well with JAWS.

Now, however, the cursor position isn't reliably reported; the
text is often repeated; and sometimes text that I know is on the
line with the cursor is not read with up arrow or down arrow.

I'm using Windows 7 (work machine) and Jaws 15.

Has anyone else noticed this? When the screen is maximized I
think, on occasion, I get better results, but I wouldn't swear to
it.

I don't remember previously having a problem with Notepad. Plus,
it is so simple that I cannot imagine why JAWS is having these
problems.

Hi Kim and everyone,

Are you sure the second document's window is maximized? I'm no expert on
Word but in some programs the program itself can be maximized (Alt+Space, X)

but the document itself also has to be maximized (Alt+Minus, X). Whether
this applies to Word I don't know.

It's probably wellknown that Notepad always comes up in the Restored state
so has to be maximized every time it's run.

HTH,

Re: Good old Notepad

Kimber Gardner
 

I haven't seen the behavior you describe in notepad. I have seen it in
Word, mostly occurring when I open a second word document while
another is already open. I haven't especially noticed the cursor
position problem but will look for it. I frequently have the problem
of Jaws not reading when I arrow up and down in the second document.
Sometimes, usually in fact, I can get the text to read if after
arrowing down I perform a read line command. Very annoying.

I too am using windows 7 and Jaws 15 with office 2013.

Hi list, Does anyone no of an accessible excel viewer that work well
with jaws? Hopefully a free one. Its not worth it to get office just to

I think that it was 3.7 that was on CD. I can check this out being that I have all disk dating back to 2.9.

Stan,

If you have it on a CD, that would be interesting. 3.2 was distributed on a
3.5 inch floppy disc. And it used the old Quellar security lock on it.
