They're hosting the files on sourceforge.  By the time you follow the "link tree" through you end up getting the download(s) from sourceforge.

I am trying to make a message rule in Outlook Express on my windows 7 computer and runnning jaws 16. I tried to make a rule using the e-mail address that we use to send messages to the listserve when posting inquaries to the listserve and it did not work. Can you please tell me of something else I can use to make this rule work so my messages from the jfw listserve will go into my Jaws folder instead of landing in my inbox folder. Thank you for your assistance with this issue to make this rule work.

Subject: JAWS With Blackboard
 
Just today, I decided to embark on a series of professional development courses that rely on Blackboard as their platform. I've heard Blackboard has taken accessibility to a much higher standard in recent years. 
 
But does anyone have tips, tricks, or Tutorials for Blackboard for a JAWS user?
 
On a related note, I still use Version 15. Is there an obvious advantage to upgrading to Ver. 17 before starting to work with Blackboard?
 
Thanks.

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Below are the 32 & 64 bit direct download links for the latest J16.0.4468 update & what's new in this update.
 
32 Bit:
 
 
64 Bit:
 
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 16 October 2015 release and the December 2015 update.
 
To download JAWS 16, go to the
Previous JAWS Downloads page.
 
list of 8 items
• Resolved an issue reported by some customers using Outlook where JAWS would sometimes not read the currently selected message as you navigated through
a list of messages in a folder. You would hear the message status, such as "unread", but no additional info, like the message sender or the subject.
• When opening the Advanced Find dialog box in Outlook using CTRL+SHIFT+F to search for specific messages and you press F6 to move to the message list,
a customer reported issue was resolved where JAWS would sometimes stop reading the selected message if the window scrolled as you navigated through the
list.
• When navigating a list of messages in Outlook 2016, resolved an issue where the selected message was not being read as expected using speech or Braille.
• Resolved an issue where the message list in Outlook 2010 was not being read correctly after closing a JAWS dialog box.
• Addressed an issue with the Amazon Product Search Research It lookup source not returning results as expected.
• This update contains new drivers from HumanWare for the Brailiant BI Braille display in order to support Windows 10.
• Resolved an issue with the German version of JAWS where the Alva ABT 3 series braille display drivers were not available in the Synthesizer and Braille
Manager.
• Addressed a customer reported issue where buttons on certain web pages were not being read correctly by JAWS.
list end
Take care.

Actually, I'd suggest you use the bundled setup available at the labdv site I posted about.  It sounds like their installer does all the work for you as far as installing the necessary components for the library as well as VLC.

        I also doubt very much that it matters whether you have the 64-bit versus 32-bit version, since the 32-bit version is their primary one and will run just fine on a 64-bit system.

 


Re: VLC

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

This is strange.  Right clicking either of these links  to start a download gives you only the HTML content, not the file you want.  Left clicking or entering takes you to another download altogether, a program from Source Forge, definitely neither of the files I want.  I thought I might be clicking the wrong link, but I tried it several times to no avail.  I might try putting the file names in Google, since they appear to be exactly what I’m looking for.  For now, I bookmarked the URL.

Hi,
My name is David Moore, and I use VLC media player exclusively. It can play all files of audio, and stream video, and play DVDs and Blue Rays. VLC has many key commands that can be used to control what you are doing. Since VLC is open source, There are always add-ons coming out that can make VLC much more accessible each week. Just a few of the commands are holding down shift and pressing right and left arrow fast forwards or rewinds by a tiny amount. Holding down ctrl and doing the same thing, forwards and rewinds a bit more. Also, Ctrl + up and down arrow increases and decreases the volume. Num pad plus, speeds up the speech, and num` pad minus slows down the speech. It is the best media player out there by far and the most versatile. It plays DVDs so well and it is so easy to play them with VLC. Please ask me any questions. Have a great one.

Following the links, I don’t think we’re talking a simple  download and copy here, even if I had a working connection at the house.  So I guess that’ll go on the back burner for now.  With that, we turn to my other questions; how does one find the resume feature.  There’s supposed to be one.  I think it might be one of those boxes or buttons accessible with the Touch Cursor (yes, Virginia, this still pertains to JAWS), but the labeling is really poor to nonexistent, as stated before.  The Video Lan site reveals no manual, at least not to me.

Everything I can find indicates that the versions since 2.0.1 should have Blu-ray support shipped with them.  However, they also have a page that details libbluray and on that page they have this NB:

Most commercial Blu-Ray are protected by AACS or BD+ technologies and this library is not enough to playback those discs.

People interested in AACS technologies should have a look at libaacs.

People interested in BD+ technologies should have a look at libbdplus.

 

It appears that you may need to download one or both of those additional libraries and install them to allow VLC to play back commercial Blu-Ray discs, which is what's been under discussion here.

Holding down ctrl and doing the same thing, forwards and rewinds a bit more. Also, Ctrl + up and down arrow increases and decreases the volume. Num pad plus, speeds up the speech, and num` pad minus slows down the speech. It is the best media player out there by far and the most versatile. It plays DVDs so well and it is so easy to play them with VLC. Please ask me any questions. Have a great one.

Hello, Jim and all members of this list.  My name is Elise Berkley and I am new to the list.  Jim, or anyone, can you explain what VLC is?  I have never heard of this program, and I like to know everything – laugh, laugh!!  Thanks.
