Vocalizer Samantha Two fails to install

Marquette, Ed <ed.marquette@...>
 

Perhaps I am just impatient, but should the Vocalizer Two (High Premium) Samantha voice take 10 minutes to install?

It says “This will take several minutes.”  It should say, “This will take an eternity.”

Perhaps I just need to download again and start all over.

I thought I would finally try JAWS 18 on my home computer.  At the same time, I thought I would try the new Vocalizer voices.  So far, I have found nothing better than Eloquence for clarity, speed, inflection variety, and responsiveness.

Re: Compressed (Zipped) Folder

Hi Gudrun, my windows7 machine in down at the moment; however, I went on the net and found this information. Try it and see if it helps. You also might try to delete express zip from program and features in the control panel. It might be called uninstall a program. I’m not sure.

 

 

Summary – How to set the default zip program in Windows 7

1.      Right-click on a .zip file.

2.      Click Open with, then Choose default program.

3.      Select the Windows Explorer option.

4.      Click the OK button.

 

Summary – How to set the default .zip program in Windows 7 from the command prompt

1.      Click the Start button.

2.      Type “cmd” into the search field, then right-click the cmd search result and choose the Run as administrator option.

3.      Click Yes to confirm that you want to allow this program to make changes to your computer.

4.      Type assoc .zip=CompressedFolder into the window, then press Enter on your keyboard. Note that you can also copy that command from this page, then right-click inside the command prompt and choose the Paste option.

Hi all: I love the handy Compressed (Zipped) Folder for zipping and extracting, but, recently, after I use my system for a day or so after startup, the association to that program gets messed up, and Express Zip comes up instead and wants me to buy the software. How do I get that association to Compressed (Zipped) Folder back? I can’t locate the actual program file for it—it is said to be a default in Windows. I have Win 7.

Re: Equivalent of NVDA "Focus Highlight" Add-On for JAWS?

HH. Smith Jr.
 

Hi Guys,

 

I researched and tweak Windows and JAWS settings and I came up with something that might help.

1.       I tethered the jaws cursor to the pc cursor

2.       I then change the mouse pointer to inverse big

3.       Applied it to all mouse functions

 

My sighted help said it worked. You guys can try it for yourself.

Does an equivalent of the Focus Highlight Add-On for NVDA exist for JAWS?

One of the things I have always found most difficult when tutoring JAWS is keeping track of where the JAWS cursor is relative to what I can see, and often, can't see because JAWS makes no effort to scroll the screen based upon the location of the JAWS virtual cursor.

It would be really handy for myself or any sighted assistant, or even for those who use JAWS with low vision, to have a visual indicator of what JAWS has focus on that shows in the program or webpage or dialog box, etc., that you're working with.
