Re: Accessing File Types in Windows 7

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

What I'm trying to do is add a description to an extension to substitute the
generic one. For example, I have files with the extension .cho, and rather
than just the generic "cho file", it should be something like, "Eastwest choir
file". How would I fix this?

Annabelle, in short, Windows 7 can only associate/open a particular
extension if Windows knows about it. it is no longer possible for the
user to add an extension and then associate it with a program. Microsoft
has removed that function from Windows 7 in order to prevent accidental
mess ups. changing is the only action a user can do, which merely
reassociates without duplicating the extension

maybe if you explain what you want to do, there's a better chance
someone can help you in whatever you're wanting to achieve.

Hi Gudrun,

Why not simply go to the file you want to change, e.g. the WAV file in your
example, then press Alt+Enter to get into the properties. Now tab until you
get to "Change" or press Alt+C. This takes you straight into the list of
available programs you can choose from or you can tab once to go to "Browse"
to select a program that is not in the list. You don't have a step 6 in your
list, but this method takes you straight to what would be step 6 in your
list.

File types and program associations in Windows 7

1. press the control-esc to search.

2. in the search box, type file association.

3. Arrow down to change the file type associated with a file extension,
enter 4. If all works right, you'll have a list of Starting with ".386

listing other extensions, so just know it's a long list.
5. Find the file extension you want to change program for. Let's say you
want .wav files to open in SoundForge instead of Windows Media player.
Backtab once from the .wav extension. JAWS will say "change program,
button."
. Hit the spacebar. You will hear "Control panel. set association. Choose
the program you want to open this file with. .wav."
7. Arrow down, and, hopefully, you should hear "Sony SoundForge, Sony."
8. Tab twice until you hear okay.

Note: if the program you want to use is not in the list of Windows default
programs, tab to "browse," the field just before "okay."

If, for example, you wanted to associate a sound file extension with Studio
Recorder, navigate to the directory level, and you are likely to find
"program files." (You may need to backtab to the c drive and right arrow to

disabling the braille keyboard

André van Deventer <andredbsa@...>
 

Hi all

 

Is it possible to disable the braille keyboard completely withing Jaws?  I do not see any such settings under braille input.

 

I can do this on my brailliant 32 in its own menu but I do not want to go that route because  I also use this display on my iphone.

 

Regards

 

André

Does anybody know how to create "play lists" when selecting music on Amazon Prime?  If you use a mouse, you can drag and drop the selected songs or albums in your play list folder.  I hav en't figured     out how to do the same thing with a keyboard.  Thanks.      



Re: will jaws work on a windows 2 in 1 laptop/tablet

Marquette, Ed <ed.marquette@...>
 

For what it is worth, I’m on my second Lenovo Yoga.  Both have been excellent.  The second one I use only because my firm bought it.  The other is my personal machine, which I bought in November 2011.

The Lenovos are, by far, the best computers I’ve ever used – totally reliable.

Our firm rolled out Windows 10 this September.  Lawyers were given a choice between the Lenovo Yoga or the Microsoft Surface Books.  There have been no problems with the Lenovo laptops, which all convert to tablets.

The Surface Books have been marginal at best.  One of my partners cannot run Outlook and Microsoft Word at the same time, and has to use Citrix.  For others, the problems have been less severe.

Our experience is not a scientific study, but we do have nearly 500 lawyers.

Lenovo may not necessarily be the best convertible laptop/tablet computers, but our experience has been uniformly positive.

Our experience with the Surface Books has been disappointing.

Those were the only choices we were given.  So, I cannot speak to other products.

It depends on the machine, but most of them nowadays it would work as most of the convertible laptops run a full version of Windows 10 Home 64 Bit.

I was just about to buy a Linovo Flex 3 convertible laptop. On that one you can't take off the screen, but you can flip it around completely so it lies flat against the botton of the laptop, at that point the keyboard is disabled and you can put the laptop on your lap with the keyboard facing down and the screen facing up and use it in tablet mode and with touch. I have, however, decided against the Linovo as the reviews are mostly good, but also mixed and it is somewhat limited with respect to RAM upgrades etc. It only has one RAM slot and comes with 8 Gb so if you want 16 Gb you basically have to get rid of the 8 Gb and buy a single 16 Gb stick. I ended up spending quite a bit more money and ordered an Asus Zenbook but in a 15.6 inch size. It still has a full 102 key keyboard with numeric pad, but it comes standard with an I7 6700U CPU, 16 Gb, a 512 Gb super-high speed SSD and the touch display is 4K wich my wife will appreciate. It's a beautiful machine and very much more like an Apple laptop or Microsoft Surface in quality.

The only laptop I know of which is basically a tablet to which you can attach a keyboard is the Microsoft Surface.

Hi,

 

So I was thinking of purchasing one of these 2 in 1 windows 10 laptop/tablets, so it’s the one where you have a tablet  that connects to a keyboard  so can  be used like a lap top or you can remove the tablet and use it as , well a tablet.  Was just wondering will jaws 16 install and run on this? I wasn’t sure as it is a tablet with windows if you can just install and run standard windows programs like jaws and any other programs I use currently on my windows 10 full desktop or can you only use programs specially designed for tablets on it?

Thanks for the reply and info, that’s all really helpful I’ll make sure if I do go ahead and buy one that I make sure its full windows 10 64bit so I can run jaws. Oh and your new laptop sounds amazing, not to mention pretty super powerful too

Subject: will jaws work on a windows 2 in 1 laptop/tablet

 

Hi,

 

So I was thinking of purchasing one of these 2 in 1 windows 10 laptop/tablets, so it’s the one where you have a tablet  that connects to a keyboard  so can  be used like a lap top or you can remove the tablet and use it as , well a tablet.  Was just wondering will jaws 16 install and run on this? I wasn’t sure as it is a tablet with windows if you can just install and run standard windows programs like jaws and any other programs I use currently on my windows 10 full desktop or can you only use programs specially designed for tablets on it?

 

Paul

I remember in Windows XP, there was a command where you could Add a file
type and its extension to the list, but in Windows 7, that command is
mysteriously gone! Is there a workable solution somewhere?

No, if you change it via the properties it applies to all files of that file
type.

Greetings, Sieghart: Isn't that more for a specific file? My purpose here
was to change the default program for the file type. Otherwise, I tend to go
to "open with" and find the program, unless it's one of those that isn't in

Hi Gudrun,

Why not simply go to the file you want to change, e.g. the WAV file in your
example, then press Alt+Enter to get into the properties. Now tab until you
get to "Change" or press Alt+C. This takes you straight into the list of
available programs you can choose from or you can tab once to go to "Browse"
to select a program that is not in the list. You don't have a step 6 in your
list, but this method takes you straight to what would be step 6 in your
list.

Sieghard

Hi all: This is a tricky business, I think. I decided to try and crack the
nut and here is my mini-tutorial on the subject: (there are probably other
ways to skin this cat, but this is what I came up with)

File types and program associations in Windows 7

1. press the control-esc to search.

2. in the search box, type file association.

3. Arrow down to change the file type associated with a file extension,
enter 4. If all works right, you'll have a list of Starting with ".386
virtual device driver" and going all the way down to "webcals add internet
calendar." I believe there is one list going from 1-z, then a second one
listing other extensions, so just know it's a long list.
5. Find the file extension you want to change program for. Let's say you
want .wav files to open in SoundForge instead of Windows Media player.
Backtab once from the .wav extension. JAWS will say "change program,
button."
. Hit the spacebar. You will hear "Control panel. set association. Choose
the program you want to open this file with. .wav."
7. Arrow down, and, hopefully, you should hear "Sony SoundForge, Sony."
8. Tab twice until you hear okay.

Note: if the program you want to use is not in the list of Windows default
programs, tab to "browse," the field just before "okay."

If, for example, you wanted to associate a sound file extension with Studio
Recorder, navigate to the directory level, and you are likely to find
"program files." (You may need to backtab to the c drive and right arrow to
Program files, then down arrow to Program files X86. Find APH in that
directory, and there you will find Studio Recorder and hit enter. The file
sr.exe is the one you want to show in the file name field. Now, tab to okay.

Re: will jaws work on a windows 2 in 1 laptop/tablet

 

It depends on the machine, but most of them nowadays it would work as most of the convertible laptops run a full version of Windows 10 Home 64 Bit.

I was just about to buy a Linovo Flex 3 convertible laptop. On that one you can't take off the screen, but you can flip it around completely so it lies flat against the botton of the laptop, at that point the keyboard is disabled and you can put the laptop on your lap with the keyboard facing down and the screen facing up and use it in tablet mode and with touch. I have, however, decided against the Linovo as the reviews are mostly good, but also mixed and it is somewhat limited with respect to RAM upgrades etc. It only has one RAM slot and comes with 8 Gb so if you want 16 Gb you basically have to get rid of the 8 Gb and buy a single 16 Gb stick. I ended up spending quite a bit more money and ordered an Asus Zenbook but in a 15.6 inch size. It still has a full 102 key keyboard with numeric pad, but it comes standard with an I7 6700U CPU, 16 Gb, a 512 Gb super-high speed SSD and the touch display is 4K wich my wife will appreciate. It's a beautiful machine and very much more like an Apple laptop or Microsoft Surface in quality.

The only laptop I know of which is basically a tablet to which you can attach a keyboard is the Microsoft Surface.

Sieghard

Hi, it's annabelle.

I know in Windows XP, if you go to "Folder Options", there's a tab that lists all the available file types and their extensions, as well as programs associated with the file types and you can add to the list, however, I don't see that in Windows 7. Is it hidden somewhere where I can't find it? I'm trying to add a file extension and it's description to the list, but there isn't an "Add" button anywhere on the screen. Maybe I'm missing something?

Re: Repair or reinstall

 

I would run the repair first, it's easier and if it doesn't fix the issue you can still uninstalla nd reinstall. What is the issue you have?

If JAWS is presenting a problem, is it better to run a repair or simply uninstall and then install again?

Re: Accessing File Types in Windows 7

Hi all: This is a tricky business, I think. I decided to try and crack the
nut and here is my mini-tutorial on the subject: (there are probably other
ways to skin this cat, but this is what I came up with)

File types and program associations in Windows 7

1. press the control-esc to search.

2. in the search box, type file association.

3. Arrow down to change the file type associated with a file extension,
enter
4. If all works right, you'll have a list of Starting with ".386 virtual
device driver" and going all the way down to "webcals add internet
calendar." I believe there is one list going from 1-z, then a second one
listing other extensions, so just know it's a long list.
5. Find the file extension you want to change program for. Let's say you
want .wav files to open in SoundForge instead of Windows Media player.
Backtab once from the .wav extension. JAWS will say "change program,
button."
. Hit the spacebar. You will hear "Control panel. set association. Choose
the program you want to open this file with. .wav."
7. Arrow down, and, hopefully, you should hear "Sony SoundForge, Sony."
8. Tab twice until you hear okay.

Note: if the program you want to use is not in the list of Windows default
programs, tab to "browse," the field just before "okay."

If, for example, you wanted to associate a sound file extension with Studio
Recorder, navigate to the directory level, and you are likely to find
"program files." (You may need to backtab to the c drive and right arrow to
Program files, then down arrow to Program files X86. Find APH in that
directory, and there you will find Studio Recorder and hit enter. The file
sr.exe is the one you want to show in the file name field. Now, tab to okay.
Gudrun
