Are you using the virtual ribbon? Some don't like it but I find it useful. It feels more like the traditional menus.

Re: file associations and audio files

Jed:

I just had this problem the other day.

I believe I pressed Control P for preferences at the main Winamp window, and then was able to tab over to file associations from there.

Once at file associations, just check the option for all files, and your Winamp should be restored.

I'm not sure why, but I had to do this myself the other day when Winamp suddenly stopped working.

Hey guyts,

OK i am drawing a huge blank. I'm running windows 7 and jfw 18. I am trying to make it so all my mp3 files play in winamp. When i would highlight a bunch of them i'd do a right click and i'd have a bunch of options like q in winamp, play in winamp, etc. I have winamp installed, but those options aren't coming up. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jed


Re: Outlook Express

Carol Smith
 

Does it work on Windows 7?  I thought it was not supposed to, so that is why I don't have it.  By the time they got most of the bugs out of WLM, I had already gotten used to Thunderbird.  Also, how does Windows Mail work, if it does at all, on Windows 7?  Thankd

Re: file associations and audio files

after winamp is open:
press control+k to open the settings.
type f until you get the file types category. if it says that it is
closed, press the right arrow to open it.
press the tab key to the all button and press the spacebar.
press shift tab to the close button and press spacebar.
now all audio and video files should start playing for such files on the
hard drive.

Hi to all,

attached is the Registry key you need to have sound in safe mode.
below are the instructions on what to do

I have been using this for years & it works great,
all it does is creat the same audio registry keys you have in normal mode in
the safe mode registry tree.
So then audio is told to start up in safe mode.
I have used this on all the windows versions since xp both 32 & 64 bit & it
works great.

depending on how you want to run the keys I have written 2 different
instructions below


1. the attached file is a text file and it is the keys you need to put into
the safe mode registry tree.
I am sending it as a text file so the email servers hopefully let it through
as an attachment.
If I send it as an attached registry file it will never be aloud through.

you need to change this text file to a registry file by changing the
extention of the
file.
this is the last 3 letters of the file after the full stop, .txt
you need to change the .txt to be .reg
So save the attached file to your computer somewhere, may be the desktop,
now go to the place where you have saved the attached file & rename it by
changing the extention from .txt to .reg
so the file name after you have changed it will be
Activate Sound in SafeMode.reg

now just hit enter on the file Activate Sound in SafeMode.reg
and you will get a window asking if you want to make changes to the
registry, you need to press yes
now another window will come up you need to press ok.
now you can reboot & go into safe mode & you will have sound.
jaws will not work due to the video driver not loading but you can use NVDA
as the screen reader
So download NVDA and set it up before you boot into safe mode.


2. if the attached file doesnt get to you because the admin of this list
doesnt allow attachments, then do the following

I have pasted the text of the registry file below,
you just need to coppy & paist the below into a notepad document & then save
it as a .reg file.

once you have pasted the below into notepad,
press control s for save,
then tab once to save as type & change this to all files,
now shift tab back into the file name edit box and name the file what ever
you want & make sure the last 3 letters of the file name are .reg
for example you can name it something like
sound in safe mode.reg

so coppy everything below between the lines of stars,
do not coppy the lines of stars

By default it auto detects the screen reader.
It will let the screen reader speak but some commands such as the say command it sends it to the screen reader to speak.
If you set it to self voicing you will get all prompts spoken in sapi speech.

Thanks to Les and Stan. That sounds about like the access I had with
Window Eyes. Quicken is offering a 60-day money back guarantee on
trying Quicken 2017 and they say they've revamped the interface, which
could go either way on accessibility. I lost a year's worth of Quicken
files due to a computer crash last summer, so I'm going to start fresh
and maybe given Quicken 2017 a try. I tried the Cash Manager software
someone else mentioned and didn't have the patience to figure it out; it
was not intuitive. Like Les, I'm mainly tracking spending categories
for my accountant and our family budgeting.

Hi Robin,

I'm using it for downloading of transactions into various accounts. You
can tab through the check registries, but often, double entries are read.
Accessibility needs lots of work. As mentioned, Intuit sold the Quicken
product to Quicken itself. The web site is quicken.com. They provide
support, but it depends on who you get when you call. I use it now
because I want to categorize transactions for tax purposes for our
accountant. If there was another viable option, I'd take it. I will
probably add investment accounts to my accounts list, something I don't
think other programs support. Cash Management had some potential, but
they didn't support the Quicken format, and there was poor follow-up
from their contact when I approached them about this issue. Every
package I know of supports the Quicken format, so that was
disappointing. Hope this helps.

Re: Is it possible to change the pitch of Eloquence?

Carol Smith
 

Re: Eloquence pitch in jaws?
Yes, this can be done.  My instructions may not be the best, but I think you can figure it out since you have already been in the Jaws options and found
the voice settings.  From within the voices setting, choose voice adjustment.
Press alt-v to get to the combo box where you choose which cursor you want to modify.
you will get to an option where you can down arrow through options for default cursor, PC cursor, Jaws cursor, etc.
You can not have the option set to default.  After choosing the cursor you want to set, tab until you find the pitch setting. This is the next tab after
the punctuation setting.
You change it with the arrow keys.
Once you have it set, tab to save as and give it a name, something you will recognize, like Glen pitch 44  and press enter on OK.
You will be asked if you want to set this for the default.  Enter on yes or OK, I forgot what it is called at this point.
Now, you will have access to that voice whenever you want to use it.

What Happened To AVG?

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I have AVG Antivirus Free Edition, and a recent update has rendered it inaccessible to JAWS. Specifically it did something where it won't let me access the menu from the System Tray like it used to. Also, I used to be able to fully access the main interface, but I think they messed with something where it's now made with Google Chrome. How do I get rid of AVG Zen? I have Antivirus Free, and it keeps telling me to renew my subscription. What's up with that? I don't have a paid subscription, and I don't think you would need one with AVG Antivirus Free.

Yes, I did, with mixed rsults.

 

The files aren't the easiest to read, probably because of a multi-column format with many graphics intersperced throughout.

 

I also tried copying and pasting the material from Convenient OCR into a new Word document, but that too was only partially effective.  There were still lots of spaces between sections of the document, and I'm not sure all of the text was included or completely accessible.

 

Anyway, I think I'm going to have to settle for the best that Convenient OCR can do at this point, and call it good.

Try the view menu, there is a place there to move up, down by page or goto a page.  The shortcuts never work for me.

Subject: Problem Advancing Beyond First Page Of PDF Articles

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I am having a problem reading a few PDF articles I have just been sent.

 

Once I open the attachments, via Adobe Acrobat DC, I find that I cannot advance beyond the first page of each article, either via the arrow keys, or the page up and page down keys.

 

Interestingly, when I use my arrow keys and the page up or down keys, the visual sscreen advances with no problem.  In other words, Jaws appears to be  stuck on the first page and is unable to advance through the rest of the file.

 

I’m using Windows 7 and the latest build of Jaws 18 here, along with Adobe Acrobat DC.

 

Any suggestions would be apreciated.

Is it possible to change the pitch of Eloquence?

Andre
 

I really don’t like the default pitch for the Jaws eloquence. Is it possible to change this? I know with Window-eyes I could, but for some reason I haven’t found how to do it in Jaws. I found something that says the pitch for uppercase where you can input a percent. I haven’t found anything else.

 

Along the same lines are there hot keys to rotor through the screen, keyboard, mouse, virtual cursor settings. In Window-Eyes it was control-Alt-arrows etc. Still trying to get used to things. I just activated my copy today.

 

Much thanks,

 

Andre

Hey guyts,

OK i am drawing a huge blank. I'm running windows 7 and jfw 18. I am trying to make it so all my mp3 files play in winamp. When i would highlight a bunch of them i'd do a right click and i'd have a bunch of options like q in winamp, play in winamp, etc. I have winamp installed, but those options aren't coming up. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jed

May I ask: When you switched did you upgrade on the same PC or get a newer generation PC with win 10 on it?
I ran win 7 on the latest generation hardware then upgraded the OS.
I am asking because I am doing a informal study and would like to have all the facts to have a accurate result. Thanks.

I am incredibly happy with Win 10. The learning curve took a while because I also upgraded to Office 16 , but once I got going all is fine. I would never willingly go back to Win 7.

Hi, I have been using win 10 for a couple of months now. I am running on the latest generation hardware and I dont see any real improvement over win 7. Actually my perceived acessibility is grater in win 7. Programs and Jaws play nicer together and I dont have to deal with Edge at all. Is this just me or do any of you have a simular experience?
Just trying to get a feel for others experiences. :)










Re: Copying information from 1 computer to another

Hi Ann,

Have you tried saving the file on a flash drive, then opening the same file
on the other computer. Once it is open, do a ctrl A to select all then
pressing Shift F10 or the application key then go into the font dialog box
and manipulate some of the settings such as the color, size, and style etc.

Subject: Copying information from 1 computer to another

One of the programs I use with my student has a non-standard highlight.
With a lot of cussing and fussing I was able to reassign the highlight
indicator to reference the foreground and background colors of the program
so that JAWS spoke the text on the screen. when I put the stinker on a new
computer, however, I was unable to locate the text in order to tell JAWS
about the colors. How can I copy the information from the old
JAWS/computer? I have looked at Explore my Settings, personalized settings,
and any number of other clever things, but can't find a sneaky little JAWS
file that applies itself to the program I tweaked. Oh, where, oh, where,
has that stinkin' highlight reference gone????

Much thanks,

Ann

Hi Judith,

 

I run Word 2010 as well, & it makes me wonder if a Windows update screwed up Word, & the way Jaws would report line info in Word.  But, good news!  While in a .DOCX file you press, Control, Shift, + G, you'll get all kinds of info including line count  Now, just so I'm not getting anything confused, you are wanting the number of lines correct?.  Or, are you wanting the number of a line you're on?

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi Judith,

 

The, 0, on the numpad is the Insert / Jaws key.  So, you want to hold down the, Insert / Jaws key / 0 + Page down / 3, to get the information you're looking for.

I would press insert in conjunction with 0 on the numb pad and hear the page number, the line number and the number of words in the document.  Especially with the line number this information is essential in formatting a document.  Can you help me get it back?  No, I don’t know how it disappeared.  It must have happened during one of my recent hospital stays.
