Re: Using the Everything Search in conjunction with JAWS & Windows Live Mail

 

Kimsan,

           I'm not quite sure what you're telling us here.   If the file is actually named "notes.xls" then using "notes" (without quotes) in either a Windows search or using Everything should find it.  In the case of a Windows search it will also find any files containing the text "notes" as well whereas Everything will just return files with "notes" somewhere in their names prior to the file extension.

           You say you went back and did "excel.xls" and there it was, but that simply cannot be if the file has "notes" as part of its name, unless the file excel.xls has the word "notes" contained within it and you're using Windows search, in which case it would be among the search results.

           Since Everything deals with file name as the primary search criteria it is generally far, far faster than Windows search because it does not try to examine file content.  If, however, you add the content:<word or words you want in the file> function this will add content searching in addition to file name and it does slow things down for obvious reasons.

Re: JAWS voicing through speakers instead of head phones

Oh crumb! Never mind. I didn't listen well enough to hear
there are two high definition audio choices in the JAWS utilities: the first is speakers and the second is head phones. Now that my ears are washed out, I will wipe the egg off my face. and my hero can listen to his books undisturbed.

JAWS voicing through speakers instead of head phones

Ann Byrne
 

Related I think to tussle with Adobe Reader, JAWS has stopped speaking through my headset, regardless of the fact that in the utilities menu it iupposed to use the high definition audio instead of the windows sound card. I don't want my husband to hear everything I do, especially while he is trying to hear something else. How do I tell JAWS to redirect itself through the headset instead of the speakers? It has to be a windows setting, I think, since the JAWS settings already appear correct.

Thanks for any help.

Ann

p.s. I'm using NVDA to type this, and don't have really good control over the output. Sorry about the grammar.

Ok, paste special.  I never used that as the paste special dialog always came up for me when pasting to word.

 

That’s good to know for when it doesn’t come up.

Hi List.

 

I'm having a brain freeze here, and I can't remember for the life of me which setting I need to alter to allow me to copy and paste text from a webpage into a word document?

 

At the moment what I'm copying is not what's being pasted!

 

I've been into the Settings Centre, but I can't find the relevant check box, or even recall what it is I should be looking for. My stumbling about in there is getting me nowhere in a hurry!

 

Any and all help gratefully received.

Re: Does anyone know whether the problem with webvisum not working with the latest version of firefox has been fixed?

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, David. This is not a problem. It's a security issue.
 

To Temporarily Make Unsigned AdOns Work In Firefox:



For those of you who depend on Webvisum to solve image captchas in the
absence of sighted help, read on.  The recently-released Firefox 43
introduced a new feature that blocks unsigned third-party add-ons like
Webvisum and prevents them from working.  So if you update to Firefox 43
either intentionally or accidently, Webvisum will no longer work unless you
apply the temporary work around described below.  This is only a temporary
fix that will no longer work after Firefox 44 is released early next year,
because this work around will be disabled or unflagged in Firefox 44.  And
if you buy a new computer next year after Firefox 44 is released and then
download and install it, Webvisum will no longer work at all, no matter what
you try.  So if you still have an older version of Firefox with a working
version of Wevvisum already installed, do not update to Firefox 43 or else
Wevvisum will no longer work unless you apply the temporary work around
described below.  The reason that Webvisum no longer works starting with
Firefox 43 is that Mozilla now requires all third-party add-ons to be signed
to comply with their security standards.  Unfortunately, Webvisum has not
been maintained by its developers for years, and they no longer even respond
to email inquiries.  So Webvisum is an unsigned add-on that is not approved
by Mozilla.  If you do update to Firefox 43,you can get Webvisum to work by
following these steps:

1.  Open Firefox 43 and in the address bar, type the below line as seen with no spaces:
about:config
2.  You will get a Firefox warning saying: 'This may void your warranty.' Click on  the button that says: 'I'll be careful, I promise.'
3.  tab once to the list of 700 or so items and press the letter X. You are looking for the below item:
xpinstall.signatures.required
4.  When this item is highlighted, press the context key or right click and choose toggel or press T (same thing.)
5.  The highlighted value should change to false as in:
xpinstall.signatures.required;false
6.  Press Control-W to close the Firefox window and then relaunch it.
Webvisum should now work.

Re: Using the Everything Search in conjunction with JAWS & Windows Live Mail

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

So I have this file in excel called notes of course with the excel extention.

 

I searched for it, a bunch of stuff relating to notes came up but not the excel file. I then went back and did excel.xls and there it was.

I keep forgetting where that file is stored, so I downloaded the program you distributed to see if I could locate it much quicker.

         No.  I very seldom use extensions as part of my searches.  The great thing is that you can include spaces in your search criteria and it "AND"s the various parts in the search.  Below is the comprehensive search syntax, if you're not using regular expressions.  You can also set the search to use regular expressions rather than the default search syntax.  If you don't know what they are don't worry about it, but for those who've used them for long periods of time, Linux users in particular, this is a big, big plus.

Bill,

 

I’ve been trying to install Plain Old Favorites today, but I just can’t get it to work. I have the .exe in my downloads folder, but MS doesn’t recognize the file type. I was taken to a recommendation to install Free Viewer, which handles various file types that apparently include Firefox add-ons and extension, but I can’t get Free Viewer even to download, never mind install.

 

The Free viewer webpage is here:

http://www.freeviewer.com/

 

Any better ideas? Also, When I open Firefox add-ons, all I get is a list of recommended add-ons. I can’t get beyond that point.

Hi, Tom. I also use PlainOldFavorites in Firefox. Adding favorites in Firefox works the same way it does for Internet Explorer. All you need to do is to go to the page you want to make a favorite for in Firefox. Once you are there, Press Alt plus the letter A. Then press the Enter key, and the favorite is automatically added. The thing which may be confusing is that the favorite will appear at the bottom of the favorites list in Firefox instead of being in alphabetical order. If you want the list to be in alphabetical order again, you must go to the PlainOldFavorites AdOn in the AdOns manager in Firefox, Click on the PlainOldFavorites Adon. It will then say Read Only. Tab to the options for that option. Select the option "Sort By Name". If the option says it is checked, press the space Bar to uncheck this option, then press the Space Bar to re-check the option. Tab to the OK button, and press Enter. Then Press Alt plus W to close Firefox. When you open Firefox again, the favorites will appear in alphabetical order.

Subject: Adding Favorites In Firefox

 

Hello, everyone.

 

A while back, I imported internet favorites from Internet Explorer to Firefox using the add-on tool called plain old favorites.

 

 

http://www.iosart.com/firefox/plainoldfavorites/

 

 

Since I now am using Firefox as my main internet browser, I’m interested in adding some additional favorites to my favorites list.

 

I can find the tab that says “add favorites”, but when I attempt to do this, nothing happens.  Jaws says nothing, and I appear to get a blank screen.

 

Am I missing a step here, or is there a different way to add new favorites to my favorites list in Firefox?

 

Thank you!

Hi again, Adrian. PlainOldFavorites is an unsigned AdOn. For this reason, you must change your about:config file in Firefox to make it work. It only works in Firefox. To install the Adon, you must download it from the following link:
 
 
After this, do the following:
 
1.  Open Firefox 43 and in the address bar, type the below line as seen
with no spaces:
about:config
2.  You will get a Firefox warning saying: 'This may void your
warranty.' Click on  the button that says: 'I'll be
careful, I promise.'
3.  tab once to the list of 700 or so items and press the letter X. You
are looking for the below item:
xpinstall.signatures.required
4.  When this item is highlighted, press the context key or right click
and choose toggel or press T (same thing.)
5.  The highlighted value should change to false as in:
xpinstall.signatures.required;false
6.  Press Control-W to close the Firefox window and then relaunch it.
PlainOldFavorites should now work.

I’ve been trying to install Plain Old Favorites today, but I just can’t get it to work. I have the .exe in my downloads folder, but MS doesn’t recognize the file type. I was taken to a recommendation to install Free Viewer, which handles various file types that apparently include Firefox add-ons and extension, but I can’t get Free Viewer even to download, never mind install.

Re: Using the Everything Search in conjunction with JAWS & Windows Live Mail

As far as file names are concerned, am I needing to put the file extention when typing what I’m looking for?

Subject: Using the Everything Search in conjunction with JAWS & Windows Live Mail

 

I believe I have posted about the Everything Search program on these forums before, but if not, here goes.  Everything can be downloaded in 32-bit and 64-bit versions from .voidtools.com.  It is an absolutely marvelous tool that does exactly what it says it will:  searches everything, based upon the file name, on the fixed drives on your computer.  Since I'm old school I generally remember what I've called files, at least important ones, and have far more reason to search for a "lost file" using its name, or part of it, than by using Windows Search to search based on either file name or text in a file.

If you are good about remembering your file names Everything can make adding multiple attachments to an e-mail that reside in a bunch of different folders much faster than having to navigate repeatedly in the Open dialog.

This can be done as follows:

1.  Use Everything to search for the file you want.  You can narrow your options very quickly using their simple search syntax.  For example, if you have a filename that includes spaces and named "Evaluation of Stock Markets in Different Parts of the World.docx" you will probably find it by entering, "eval* stock world".  The spaces in the search string are important.

2.  After entering your search criteria, either hit TAB or DOWN ARROW to take JAWS to the list of files returned.

3.  Go through that list using your preferred method in JAWS until you find the file in the search results you want.

4.  Hit CTRL+C to copy the file to the clipboard.  This also places the full path to the file on the clipboard in case that's what's needed, and in this case it is.

5.  In your e-mail program, open the attach dialog, and simply hit CTRL+V to paste the full path to the file into the "File" field, then close the dialog as necessary to actually attach the file.

The above works like a charm in Windows Live Mail when a variety of files, from a variety of locations, whose names you know need to be attached to an e-mail message.  It is far, far faster to use Everything to locate the individual files with the Cut/Paste technique for the full file path into the open dialog File edit box than it is to navigate all over the place for each and every one of these files if they're not in either the same folder or folders very "close" to one another in the tree structure.

          Up through Windows 8.1 you just turn off automatic updating via

comes into play and let it go to town then.

          In Windows 10 you go to the Network & Internet Settings, WiFi

 Windows will not download Windows updates over a metered connection.  You
can go back in and set the same switch back to Off just before your "cheap

allow them again.

2. Arrow down to, Virtual Cursor Options, & under this heading is Select & Copy, & here you have 2 choices which you press the spacebar to toggle between them.
3. If you choose the, From Virtual Cursor option, this copies the text with formatting.  If you choose the, Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight option, this will copy the text without formatting.

Re: Selecting Multiple Items in a List via JAWS

 

Just wanted to report back as I am able to test this without JAWS because it appears that Martin's suggestions are all Windows based shortcuts that I've simply never used.

If you are resting on a given file that is unselected, SHIFT itself acts as select.  It does not, however, behave as a toggle since a subsequent hit of SHIFT on the file you've just selected does not unselect it.  You have to hit CTRL+SHIFT to do that on the initial item you select.

If you keep SHIFT held down and continue arrowing (it can be up or down) each subsequent file is added to the collection of selected items.  

Holding down CTRL and keeping it held down selects the first file you were on while leaving the files passed over unselected unless you hit SPACEBAR while CTRL is still held down, in which case the file currently rested upon is added to the collection of selected items.  

One can also select a file somewhere in the middle with SHIFT, then while still holding down SHIFT hit the Home or Page Up button to select all files above it in the list back to the first.  The same thing can be accomplished for all the files below it in the list down to the end by using End or Page Down in conjunction with the SHIFT key.

The only thing I can't yet figure out is how one might go about selecting a chunk of files out of the center as a block without using the SHIFT with either Up or Down arrow applied repeatedly.

At least this is somewhat easier than selecting text in a word processor or other text manipulation program!
