OK, thanks. I can make that work. I could not open a plain text one this
morning, and neither could my husband with that rat he uses.

Best from,

Carolyn

Hi, Carolyn. I wanted to explain a little more in depth how to send an
attachment in Outlook.

1. Find the file you want to attach to your letter.
2. Copy it to the clipboard with CONTROL plus C.
3. Open Outlook, and open a new message to the person you want to send it
to.
4. Once the new message is open, use CONTROL plus V to paste the attachment
directly into the message.
5. Press Enter, and begin composing the body of your e-mail message.
6. Send the message.

That's it. The attachment will be in the message. If you want to verify
this, go to your Sent Messages folder, open the message you sent, SHIFT plus
tab until you hear it say Attachments, and check your attachment.

When you hit Control Y, of course, you get the option to switch to
other portions of Outlook, but it also announces how message you have
unread.
Admittedly, unlike good old Outlook Express it doesn't give a total,
then give the unread messages. I do like the calendar though.

I had one problem. I was told that to block a sender to send the
e-mail to Junk, which worked for a couple, but not on the last one I
attempted to send. I ended up permanently deleting it, but I wanted to
block it.

Another thing I am wanting to do, which is not specific to Outlook,
but does apply to it is to know how to add words to my dictionary,
since Control A is not doing that; also I want to know what commands
to give Spell Check to make the change I want.

Hi Keith,

Try the following:

While in Windows Explorer, go to Tools and then folder options.
Next, move to the view tab, and then the tree-view, and uncheck the
following:
show preview handlers in preview payne.
This problem does not occur on every Win7 machine, but it has been found that unchecking this option has corrected the problem on several systems.
This crops up on some 32 and 64-bit systems.
HTH,

Take care.

Hi,

Running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and latest JAWS 16.

When I go in to Windows Explorer and look at folders and files, it seems to hang on me.

I get the following message after receiving a dialog to Wait for program to resume or Exit the program. What does this mean, and what should I do next?
Thanks.

HotSpot Clicker error question

Aaron Lane <ajbd777@...>
 

Hello,
I had an old version of HSC and went to install the newest version. During
the install wizard, I was prompted to click Uninstall previous HSC version,
and I did this. Then the wizard told me it would create a back up folder.
Now I open an application that I want to start adding scripts to, and I get
a pop up error that says something to the effect, that I have a
compatibility error, it lists the address to the back up folder I believe,
and it tells me to open Script manager in JAWS, and save to recompile. I do
this, but still continue to receive that error message. I'm using JAWS 12 on
this computer. Any advice? Thanks much.

Aaron


Re: changing the "view" in outlook 2010

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

And the best part is JAWS help for Office 2007 has a really good short course on using the ribbon. I haven't checked to see if it's duplicated for later versions of office, but 2007 was the ribbon's initial debut.

There's one more good reason to avoid FS's virtual ribbon. Using the MS ribbon, we're using the same one that everyone in the world does. It means we can share info with sighted people and take advantage of regular online solutions when we encounter problems. I google solutions to Office problems regularly, but the answers might do me little good if I'd resorted to the virtual ribbon.

I think the instructions Bill is referring to is that as you tab, the keystrokes for accessing the various options from within the ribbon are given. Personally, I can live without that. I've had a real struggle with the ribbons ever since I started to use them, and I think it's because virtual ribbons were checked. I wondered why NVDA seemed to handle the ribbons more effectively than Jaws, and now I think I understand why that was the case. In retrospect, use of the virtual ribbons caused me more trouble than they were worth. Perhaps FS will improve on that feature, but for now, I won't be using that feature.

Hi, Les. The argument for not unchecking the Virtual Ribbon is this:
JAWS put in the "Virtual Ribbon" for those who wanted to manually
navigate the ribbons using the arrows and the Tab key. It is supposed
to make the menus more accessible, but I haven't found this to be true
in most instances.

Brad was saying that people may say to uncheck the Virtual Ribbon
without telling the person the down side of unchecking the Virtual
Ribbon. This may be true. However, some of the techs at FS tell you to
check the Virtual Ribbon, without telling you that this blocks the
function of some of the shortcuts.

Yes, but some people may want to stay with the virtual ribbon, which

Personally, I stayed with the regular ribbon, which is fine once you
get used to it. All I'm saying is that people considering unchecking
this option need to be aware of the consequences.

To check your settings for the Virtual Ribbon Menu in JAWS:

Press JAWS KEY plus F2. Arrow down to Settings Center and press Enter.
Press the letter M until it says Miscellaneous. Press Right Arrow to
Open Miscellaneous.

Arrow down to Virtual Ribbon Menu. It will probably tell you that
this setting is unavailable except in the default configuration of JAWS.

To load the default configuration: Press Shift plus Control plus the
letter D as in dog.

Once your default configuration is loaded, you can Press the Up and
Down Arrow to see if your Virtual Ribbon Menu is checked or not. You
want it to be unchecked if you want all of the keyboard shortcuts to
work
properly.
If
it is checked, press the Space Bar to uncheck it. Then Tab to OK and
press Enter to save these settings.

I hope this helps you.

Re: Best email client with Jaws

Hi, Carolyn. I wanted to explain a little more in depth how to send an attachment in Outlook.

1. Find the file you want to attach to your letter.
2. Copy it to the clipboard with CONTROL plus C.
3. Open Outlook, and open a new message to the person you want to send it to.
4. Once the new message is open, use CONTROL plus V to paste the attachment directly into the message.
5. Press Enter, and begin composing the body of your e-mail message.
6. Send the message.

That's it. The attachment will be in the message. If you want to verify this, go to your Sent Messages folder, open the message you sent, SHIFT plus tab until you hear it say Attachments, and check your attachment.

messages in my Inbox, I keep losing mail, and the whole ribbon just doesn't
make much sense to me. Is there another, more accessible, and hopefully
free mail client I can switch to?

Re: Best email client with Jaws

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

Good computer guy exported my Outlook Express address to Business Card, and
then imported from there to Outlook. I would hate to tell you that and it
cause problem for you, but maybe it is something you could research. Outlook
Express could not be imported into Outlook. He came over here, at least
giving us the impression, that he thought that it would. My husband said he
could have studied the net to figure it out, could have saved $80.


Best from,

Carolyn

Outlook has considerably more features than WLM, consequently more stuff to

When you went to Live Mail, what did you do about your Contacts?

Is it easy to make distribution lists in Windows Live Mail. I have several
that I need to make. Today, I needed to send out word of a death to one of
my groups, but do not have the lists now and not the time to go through some
130 contacts for 30.

What do you like about Windows Live Mail? Does it have a calendar?

Can you tab around in it, or do you have to give Keyboard commands?

Hello Carolyn,
I go to the list of files in Windows Explorer, move to the one I wish to
attach, do not open it, but press control C to copy it's address, and then
go to the new letter I have created, and press control V to paste it in.
To open an attachment in a letter press insert A, and arrow to the
attachment you wish to open, and press enter. You will notice here that the
message body is presented as an attachment.
In the conversation regarding turning off the navigation key feature in
Word, you may wish to leave it so that you can toggle it on and off using
insert Z. It is really useful for navigating around in documents you
createwith Headings to quickly move to various sections of the documents.
Cheers Kevin.

When you hit Control Y, of course, you get the option to switch to other
portions of Outlook, but it also announces how message you have unread.
Admittedly, unlike good old Outlook Express it doesn't give a total, then
give the unread messages. I do like the calendar though.

I had one problem. I was told that to block a sender to send the e-mail to
Junk, which worked for a couple, but not on the last one I attempted to
send. I ended up permanently deleting it, but I wanted to block it.

Another thing I am wanting to do, which is not specific to Outlook, but does
apply to it is to know how to add words to my dictionary, since Control A is
not doing that; also I want to know what commands to give Spell Check to
make the change I want.

Hi Keith,

Try the following:

While in Windows Explorer, go to Tools and then folder options.
Next, move to the view tab, and then the tree-view, and uncheck the
following:
show preview handlers in preview payne.
This problem does not occur on every Win7 machine, but it has been found
that unchecking this option has corrected the problem on several systems.
This crops up on some 32 and 64-bit systems.
HTH,

Take care.

Hi,

When I go in to Windows Explorer and look at folders and files, it seems to

I get the following message after receiving a dialog to Wait for program to

Subject: Re: Best email client with Jaws

I loved the old Qualcomm Eudora, but I ran into some problems running it
under 64-bit Windows 7. There was probably a work around, but a sighted
friend kept telling me how much she loved Thunderbird, so I finally gave it
a try around the time I got this computer. I love it. It's clean, simple,
almost never crashes on me, sorts my mail by Email account (I have several),
spellchecks as I type (although the dictionary is a little limited as is),
and works terrific with JAWS version 15 in Windows 7 Pro. And, bonus, it has
a conventional menu bar. A nice plus for me (but probably not needed by most
people) is that I could automate the sending of form letters to my clients
with a shortcut on the desktop. I've been thoroughly impressed with it, and
I kind of didn't expect to be. In other words, I was a tough sell, but you'd
have to give me a really really good reason to switch.

One caution: When I open Thunderbird, I have to Shift Tab once to get into
the list of messages. But it's one keystroke, and now I'm so used to it I
don't even notice.

I have the same thing. It's a Windows problem which is not an easy fix.
However, I noticed this weekend that if I answer no to the wait for program
to start, then go to the desktop and press insert+escape to refresh the
screen it clears up.

I looked up the fix on the Internet, but its beyond my megar abilities to
perform. Hope this helps.

Yes, but some people may want to stay with the virtual ribbon, which is the FS attempt to make ribbon navigation easier for visually impaired users.
Personally, I stayed with the regular ribbon, which is fine once you get used to it. All I'm saying is that people considering unchecking this option need to be aware of the consequences.

To check your settings for the Virtual Ribbon Menu in JAWS:

Press JAWS KEY plus F2. Arrow down to Settings Center and press Enter.
Press the letter M until it says Miscellaneous. Press Right Arrow to Open Miscellaneous.

Arrow down to Virtual Ribbon Menu. It will probably tell you that this setting is unavailable except in the default configuration of JAWS.

To load the default configuration: Press Shift plus Control plus the letter D as in dog.

Once your default configuration is loaded, you can Press the Up and Down Arrow to see if your Virtual Ribbon Menu is checked or not. You want it to be unchecked if you want all of the keyboard shortcuts to work properly. If it is checked, press the Space Bar to uncheck it. Then Tab to OK and press Enter to save these settings.

I hope this helps you.

This keyboard shortcut may work only if the Virtual Ribbon option

suggestion, alt-V, c, v, did not work for me. When I bring up the

"blank".



Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Pretty much hit-or-miss. It would depend on the Operating System + Video
Device Driver + JAWS Version + Program Version + Unknown Gremlins.

Very hard to duplicate symptoms with so many variables. I do know that
JAWS
16 tendency to close and reopen without any warning is a bit of a thorn in
my side. There are times when it won't come back at all, and I'm sitting
there with my hands poised, waiting for nothing.

Very enlightening! For some reason, I never got around to, nor frankly
considered, uninstalling previous versions of JAWS, and this may have
proven
to be "far-sighted" after all. I think that I may adopt your 3
most-recent
version strategy myself. However, once someone moves to Windows 10,
previous JAWS versions will not work - from what I gather.

However, it may be a while before I upgrade to Windows 10. So, for now,
are
there some applications that typically misbehave with the latest JAWS
offering? Or, as with many things, it is pretty much a hit or miss
situation?

Jim,

As to previous versions -- simply because the current install is running
fine, it does not mean that it will run so with all applications. I
occasionally run JAWS 15 when JAWS 16 is misbehaving in a particular
program. I delete versions older than 3 major revisions back, just to keep
things simpler. And I still have all the executables for last revisions of
all major versions going back to 3.5. Of course that's just my
anal-retentive nature at work, having sufficient hard disk space to
justify
that level of insanity.

Hi,

I've been following all this Windows 10 stuff with great interest, and
I just have a question (with a lot of background first):

So FS says you shouldn't use Edge, you should use Firefox or IE. (I'm
doing that now in Windows 7.) You can't use the built in mail program;
you should use something like Thunderbird or Outlook. (I'm doing that
now in Windows 7.) And you should use Adobe Reader for PDF documents.
(I'm doing that now in Windows 7.) Reviews I've read all seem to
indicate that Cortana is iffy at best.

So why should I upgrade again? I'm not being smart; I'd really like to
know if I'm going to gain anything other than having a new operating
system that I have to use in the same old ways. The only benefit I can
see is that Windows 10 will be supported beyond January of 2020, where
Windows
7 will not. Am I overlooking some wonderful new feature that should
cause me to want to hurry and upgrade? Or does the old saying, "If it
ain't broke, don't fix it," apply here? I'd really honestly like to
know if JAWS users in particular are finding anything beneficial in
the upgrade, or if it's just something fun to do to your functioning
computer to see if it will still function.

P.S. Anybody on this list from Louisiana and thinking Cortana, as in
mall?

Re: Clarification of my question, and thank yous

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

I agree. For example, the must-have, sexy feature of JAWS 16 for me has been the added OCR-PDF capability, and it has not disappointed.

On a secondary issue, if you have time for a brief VLC discussion, please drop me a line at Ted.Lisle@ky.gov.

Subject: Clarification of my question, and thank yous

Hi all,

Just to be clear, I wasn't saying that anyone shouldn't upgrade to Windows 10, or that I never would. I'm sure I will eventually--quite possibly next year if it works well enough. The intent of my question was that with all of the new features that are available but which we can't use yet, I wasn't clear what I would gain by going through that process today, right now, this week. I have a desktop that's not quite two years old, but I've got lots of horsepower in it; it won't have any trouble meeting the Windows 10 requirements. Then I have a cheap laptop which is not quite a year and a half old, and it's pretty basic, but should also function fine with Windows 10. Both are running Windows 7.
Both are doing very well for me. Nothing's slow. Everything I need for home and work just works. It's really a blessing. So the goal of my inquiry was to understand what great improvements I should expect from upgrading to Windows 10 right now. To this point, I haven't heard anything that's made me want to drop what I'm working on to upgrade my perfectly functioning machines before I go to bed tonight. It does sound like Windows 8.1 users may be very grateful to get back the Windows 7 functionality that Microsoft should never have taken away in the first place, and I think if I had 8.1, I'd be thinking more seriously about diving into the Windows 10 pool.

On a completely separate note, I thought an interesting item is the fact that for a limited time, people who upgrade to Windows 10 will get a DVD player for free to replace their current Windows Media Center; but later adopters will have to pay separately for Microsoft's DVD player de jour.
This would be compelling if I hadn't abandoned Windows Media Player years ago for the free VLC Media Player.

Thank you to all who have contributed to this discussion. It has been most helpful. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

Brad

Re: stubborn remnants

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

I've noticed those left behind, but don't remember having trouble getting rid of them the old-fashioned way. You might try something like Revo Uninstaller.

Subject: stubborn remnances

after running the tool from fs to remove prior versions of JAWS, I checked the programs and features applett and found:

Freedom Scientific Synthesizer Eloquence Freedom Scientific 7/ 13/ 2015
10.9 MB 6.1.004
Freedom Scientific Talking Installer 13.0 Freedom Scientific 8/ 28/
2012 15.3 MB 13.0.1006.400
Freedom Scientific Talking Installer 14.0 Freedom Scientific 8/ 27/
2013 35.2 MB 14.0.6005.400
Freedom Scientific Video Intercept Freedom Scientific 8/ 27/ 2013
12.6.305.0


opting to uninstall the 13 talking installer, I got the following which also happens with the 14 talking installer:

The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.

Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'RuntimeJAWS.msi' in the box below.
C:\Users\Mario\AppData\Local\Temp\
OK


The path
'C:\Users\Mario\AppData\Local\Temp\RuntimeJAWS.msi'
cannot be fo und. Verify that you have access to this
location and try again, or try to find the installation package 'RuntimeJAWS.msi' in a folder from which you can install the product Freedom Scientific Talking Installer 13.0.
Cancel


The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it.

I figure the Eloquence driver and Video Intercept are needed components, so left those alone.

how to cleanly remove both talking installers?

Re: What do I gain with Windows 10 as a blind person?

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

That's good to hear. Most people know that Lenovo has that IBM pedigree--quite a family tradition.

I wish that had been the case. I bought a Lenovo on sale. It has 12 gb RQAM and 1 tb memory. My husband calls it "a Hummer." I said on Facebook that it set me back but was not a set back.

Carolyn,

Do I understand that you can still receive a free copy of Windows 10 for an XP installation? I thought it was only available to Windows 7 and Windows 8 installations.

I came from XP, and wow, am I glad that I did. I never had 7, so I can't speak for that. I've just been working on mine for about 24 hours, and I do like it!

Subject: What do I gain with Windows 10 as a blind person?

Hi,

I've been following all this Windows 10 stuff with great interest, and I just have a question (with a lot of background first):

So FS says you shouldn't use Edge, you should use Firefox or IE. (I'm doing that now in Windows 7.) You can't use the built in mail program; you should use something like Thunderbird or Outlook. (I'm doing that now in Windows
7.) And you should use Adobe Reader for PDF documents.
(I'm doing that now in Windows 7.) Reviews I've read all seem to indicate that Cortana is iffy at best.

So why should I upgrade again? I'm not being smart; I'd really like to know if I'm going to gain anything other than having a new operating system that I have to use in the same old ways. The only benefit I can see is that Windows 10 will be supported beyond January of 2020, where Windows 7 will not. Am I overlooking some wonderful new feature that should cause me to want to hurry and upgrade? Or does the old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," apply here? I'd really honestly like to know if JAWS users in particular are finding anything beneficial in the upgrade, or if it's just something fun to do to your functioning computer to see if it will still function.

P.S. Anybody on this list from Louisiana and thinking Cortana, as in mall?
