Problems with windows creator

Pablo Morales
 

HI all,

I have installed the windows creator a few days ago. However I have found some problems that I didn’t find with the previous versions.

·         Jaws 18 last release crash when I am working on excel, or word, or outlook 2016.

·         OneDrive for some reason is working very bad. Trying to upload files to be share between several computers, I heard upload locked almost every time.

·         Jaws is working very unstable

·         Now 32gb is not enough memory to work. Before I didn’t have these memory problems.

·         This situation is happening in 3 different computers with I7 processors and 32gb of ram.

Guys, there is something that I should modify, or just I need to go back to the previous windows 10.

Thanks

Subject: microsoft account issues

Hi, since upgrade to the windows creator update, time to time get a notification, having issues with my Microsoft account, and the experience app or feature. What is that and when I try to put in my password, which I cnaged a few weeks ago, does not like it, does the lockout and then have to click the audio link and type in all the letters, and horrible voice, and then click on next, but cannot go any further. Any fixes for this.

Thanks.

And also says to reconnect my drive, which I have a Toshiba external 1 tb drive plugged into my Toshiba satellite pro c-50-a.

Any ideas.

Thanks.

List Rules, Mon, 5/1/17 #cal-notice

main@jfw.groups.io Calendar <noreply@...>
 

List Rules

When:
Monday, 1 May 2017
12:00am to 1:00am
(GMT-04:00) America/New York

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin
 


Re: Inserting Youtube video into PowerPoint2016 presentation JAWS18

 

Shai,

          I'm not entirely clear here about what it is that you can't do specifically.  I am presuming that you have already gone to the YouTube site for the video you wish to embed and snagged the required embedding URL.  I prefer this method to the new functionality that allows you to search for a YouTube video by title as this way you absolutely know that you've snagged the video you intend before you even start.

          Is this the Microsoft Support Page you've read (and it covers this for PowerPoint 2010, 2013, & 2016)?:

                  https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Insert-or-link-to-a-video-on-YouTube-8340EC69-4CEE-4FE1-AB96-4849154BC6DB#OfficeVersion=2016 

I have Office 2010, but the first two steps are the same and they've changed the last two only slightly

  1. Hit ALT+N to show the Insert Tab
  2. Followed immediately by V (video control)
  3. Followed by O (online Video)
  4. Then search for the "From a Video Embed code"  edit box and paste the embed URL for the video.

I can't really speak to the controls within the PowerPoint presentation that are the result of the YouTube video being embedded at all.  It appears just as it does on the YouTube page, so if you're familiar with the controls you'd use while browsing YouTube on the web those would likely work.

When you're in PowerPoint in design mode I can delete a video just by getting the video box selected and hitting CTRL+X to cut it.

Doc Tom, I have these for keyboard with tablet:


If you use the keyboard:
Escape key - Back\
Home - F1
F3 - Settings
Control-alt- r - Rrecent screens
Control- alt- n - Notification screen
Review screen -n press Alt-Up, Down, Left or Right Arrow keys
Alt-Enter - Activate an item
Alt-Shift-Enter - Long press. Long press is when you double tap and then on the second tap you hold your finger on the item until a context menu pops up with extra options for that item.

I have gone to Google to try to obtain a complete list, but so far, have not found them like I did for Windows 10, Word and a few things like that.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Okay, I really goofed on that explanation. You hit alt, shift f and either arrow down to download as or hit the letter D to get there quickly. I apologize for that really big goof.

I hope someone will correct me if this is the wrong information. When I want to save a document from Google Drive I press ctrl, shift, f and down arrow. I think one of the choices is save as. You have other options there like share... Once you enter on save as you do just like you would if you were saving anything else.

Google Sheets is a way for multiple people to work on and share a spreadsheet. There is all Google Slides and Google Docs. You can determine who you share the Google Drive products with and what level of editing is available. It is frequently used in schools but can be sued any time you need to work on something with others. The commands are different than commands for Word, PPT and Excel. You can do a Google search and find a list of commands.

Hello everyone,
I'll be starting an internship coming up this week, and the people I'm going to work for had a few questions. Firstly, they wanted to have some sort of data entry program that would log in their customers info. I suggested using something like Excel, but they said that Excel was a little too complex for what they were wanting to do. They said they wanted to use something like a Google Sheets to do this. Is Google Sheets accessible with jaws? Or is there another program that can handle data entry?

Also, I'm going to be composing some newsletters and various brochures. They currently use Microsoft Publisher. Is Microsoft Publisher accessible with jaws 18?

Thanks for any and all assistance, Shane.

so, if it's not a problem with JAWS, why doesn't J16's weather RI work?
I still get no results, although I can just as easily go to the website.
but it sure would have been nice if RI would have been fixed in J16.

Nothing more to say, really. For a while JAWS couldn't read the site
for Research It. Then a new release corrected that. But when you tried
to go to the current forecast, the information wasn't there. Now it
is! This is not a JAWS thing at all, but the web site itself. So.
Since the site is fixed, Research It displays what you would expect.

BTW, the web site is
www.braille.wunderground.com

it is a terrific web site for checking weather.
