Hello Listmembers,



Having just purchased a laptop , I would like to use Windows 365, as my wife has access to this program through her graduate school. Are there any issues in configuring Windows365 or any other set up issues that I need to be aware of?

I have also considered using open source alternatives for Word, Excel and PowerPoint in lieu of Windows 365. If I go this route, I would appreciate any recommendations with regard to an open source option that offers the aforementioned programs.



Best, Justin

Re: Windows 10 difference, autoplay not working, or is it in another form?

Hi Steve,

The tab key does nothing. I do not hear the "dismiss this notification"message.

Repeated tabs, space bar and ENTER do nothing.

But I can Tab twice - first time I get to "Dismiss this notification", second time JAWS says nothing, but if I then press Space, it opens the necessary screen for entering the password.

So the steps that work for me are Windows + V, Tab, Tab, Space. The toast only stays on screen for a few seconds, so I have to be quick!

Hi Steve,

that worked. After hearing the musical tone, windows+v gives me the notification message.

Itannounces the device and:
tap to choose what happens with removable drive

I cannot invoke a tap, the space-bar and ENTER do nothing.

When I choose to eject the USB pen drive I hear:
... safe to remove hardware.

Inserting the MS Office setup disk does not start automatically and I don't know how to tap with the keyboard.

Thanks for getting me this far.

Hi Peter,

A couple of things you could try.

When you hear the musical tone, press Windows + V and you may hear a new notification message; on some of these you can press Space to get a list of actions you can take. This worked on Windows 8 and, for me, it works on Windows 10 when I plug in a USB drive. I don't have a DVD player on my machines to test.

The other thing is to go to the Start menu and search on Autoplay. The first result should take you to the Autoplay area in which you can do a lot more than turn it on - you can Tab through it and get options for all kinds of situations where new media is attached, and choose a default action for each of them.

You should only get the notification message, which I've heard some people refer to as a toast, if there isn't a default action to take for whatever you've just plugged in.

Hello,

In Windows 10, I have auto play on. When a music CD is inserted or a USB penn drive connected, all I hear is a musical tone. There is no dialogue prompting me what to do with this device. I'm told there is a brief notificationcontaining the word "tap". This might be from Windows 8 which was gearedto the touch screen tablet devices.

A setup disk, like MS Office 2013, will not start the setup process. I have to go into "This PC" to activate the drive,and then search for a setup.exe file.

How do JAWS users handle this?

In Windows 7, we heard the "click this balloon" message and the JAWS numpad slash could activate it. Since using Windows 10, I have not yet heard a "click this balloon" message.

I had that same problem a few weeks back, and I called Microsoft Accessibility Support for some help. They ran a few programs remotely that removed some corrupted files and made sure Windows Updates were current. That's with a Windows 7 64-bit, Windows Media Player, and the latest Jaws 16. Might be worth considering. Keith

Take care and let me know if it still doesn't work after saving the file.

Hi all,
Here is the tutorial on Google Chrome Browser that I have promised you. It is a Audio MP3 file that will play on about anything. I go over how to save files, and use Surfs Up to demonstrate everything you need to know about using different combo boxes and all you need to know when using a browser. I hope you enjoy it. It is an hour long. The link below is a drop box link. I fixed my drop box, so this link should work fine. Enter on the link and a page will open up. Go to almost to the bottom of the page and enter on the download link. You can save it to your computer. I hope you can get even more out of Google Chrome. Here is the link below.

This announcement, which does appear visually, is never picked up by IE. I don't use Firefox often enough to comment. Remember, F5 will cut short an ad if that option appears on-screen, whether or not verbalized by JAWS.

Subject: Google Chrome and Youtube

Hello Everyone,
While going to several youtube videos using Chrome, I noticed something that I had not noticed before using IE or Firefox. When the page launched, an advertisement started to play, but in the background I could hear Jaws announce that an advertisement was playing and that it could be stopped. As I arrowed down, I could make out that there was a button to stop the advertisement, and when I pressed the space bar, the advertisement stopped instantly and the Youtube video immediately started playing. I am not using the latest IE or Firefox, so it is possible that each of these browsers report the same information, but this is the first time I have heard the stop option. It also reports the length of the advertisement and how much has already played. I'm curious to know if what I have described is present with the current versions of IE and or Firefox.
Thanks,
Dennis

Re: Windows 10 difference, autoplay not working, or is it in another form?

Steve Griffiths
 

Hi Peter,

I've been playing. When I plug in a USB that is bitlocker protected, I get a toast which I can read with Windows + V. Like you, Enter and Space do nothing for me. But I can Tab twice - first time I get to "Dismiss this notification", second time JAWS says nothing, but if I then press Space, it opens the necessary screen for entering the password.

So the steps that work for me are Windows + V, Tab, Tab, Space. The toast only stays on screen for a few seconds, so I have to be quick!

Hi Peter,

A couple of things you could try.

When you hear the musical tone, press Windows + V and you may hear a new notification message; on some of these you can press Space to get a list of actions you can take. This worked on Windows 8 and, for me, it works on Windows 10 when I plug in a USB drive. I don't have a DVD player on my machines to test.

The other thing is to go to the Start menu and search on Autoplay. The first result should take you to the Autoplay area in which you can do a lot more than turn it on - you can Tab through it and get options for all kinds of situations where new media is attached, and choose a default action for each of them.

You should only get the notification message, which I've heard some people refer to as a toast, if there isn't a default action to take for whatever you've just plugged in.

Subject: Windows 10 difference, autoplay not working, or is it in another form?

Hello,

In Windows 10, I have auto play on. When a music CD is inserted or a USB penn drive connected, all I hear is a musical tone. There is no dialogue prompting me what to do with this device. I'm told there is a brief notificationcontaining the word "tap". This might be from Windows 8 which was gearedto the touch screen tablet devices.

A setup disk, like MS Office 2013, will not start the setup process. I have to go into "This PC" to activate the drive,and then search for a setup.exe file.

How do JAWS users handle this?

In Windows 7, we heard the "click this balloon" message and the JAWS numpad slash could activate it. Since using Windows 10, I have not yet heard a "click this balloon" message.

Hi,
I always save the file and then play it. Maybe it has something to do with running instead of saving, I really don't know. Try saving it to your computer. It should play in about any player. I tried saving it myself and pressed enter on the saved MP3 file and it played in my VLC media player.
Take care and let me know if it still doesn't work after saving the file.

Hi all,
Here is the tutorial on Google Chrome Browser that I have promised you. It is a Audio MP3 file that will play on about anything. I go over how to save files, and use Surfs Up to demonstrate everything you need to know about using different combo boxes and all you need to know when using a browser. I hope you enjoy it. It is an hour long. The link below is a drop box link. I fixed my drop box, so this link should work fine. Enter on the link and a page will open up. Go to almost to the bottom of the page and enter on the download link. You can save it to your computer. I hope you can get even more out of Google Chrome. Here is the link below.

Re: Creating a short cut to open a program not on your desktop

Adrian Spratt
 

I made an error in the instructions I posted yesterday, which came to me in the middle of the night. IN step 6, press alt-enter, not control-enter. My apologies. I've made the correction in both places in the message copied below.

here are the steps for creating a shortcut in Windows 7.

1. Press the Windows key.

2. up arrow once and press enter on all apps.

3. Press the up or down arrow once to get into the programs list, then use first-letter navigation to locate the program that you want to set the short cut for.

4. If the program name is announced along with the word "closed," press right arrow to open it.

5. There may be several options here, such as uninstall. The program itself will have the name of the program without any additional wording or letters.

6. Once you have focus on the program, press alt-enter to bring up preferences. In every instance I've encountered, you will land in the shortcut dialog.

7. tab to the edit field and enter your choice of shortcut. If you want a shortcut that includes the control and alt keys, just enter the letter. Otherwise, press the entire combination, such as control-shift-c.

8. No need to tab to the OK button. Just press enter to exit the dialog.

Now you have a shortcut that will work from anywhere in your computer, unless you're in an application that has assigned that same shortcut to an application-specific function. For example, my IE shortcut is control-alt-I, which doesn't work in MS Word because that key combination performs a Word function.

It's even easier when the program has an icon on the desktop. Skip steps 1 through 5. Just place focus on the icon, press alt-enter (step 6) and pick up with step 7.


Windows 10 difference, autoplay not working, or is it in another form?

Peter Tesar
 

Hi Steve,

that worked. After hearing the musical tone, windows+v gives me the notification message.

Itannounces the device and:
tap to choose what happens with removable drive

I cannot invoke a tap, the space-bar and ENTER do nothing.

When I choose to eject the USB pen drive I hear:
... safe to remove hardware.

Inserting the MS Office setup disk does not start automatically and I don't know how to tap with the keyboard.

Thanks for getting me this far.
