SumatraPDF is well-known as probably the simplest, fastest PDF reader available for Windows. It's small so it loads things fast, and can be run from a USB drive. But it's more than PDFs. It also reads comic book files (in CBZ and CBR formats) and ebooks (ePub and Mobi files), among other things.

Hi,

Thanks Tedand all,

Particularly the comment about System Restore.

 

Can some one tell me off list which has advantages in ease of use and security  including firewall management between MSE and Windows Defender?

Please write off list.

 

This is a JAWS-related issue  as in the past I spent lots of time trying out  antivirus programs.

 

 

Many thanks.

Subject: Re: Wireless router password & Jaws

 

Wow, this does sound pretty serious and I would say, no, if somebody has indeed access to your router then just not using WiFi may not make a difference. I hope the first thing you did is change your Facebook password. I would actually change every single password I had if they have such access. Are you sure it's not somebody who has physical access to your computer?

You definitely also need to change your router's password and you don't want to make it the same as your Facebook or other passwords.

Your passwords should be at least 12 characters long, 14 or 16 characters is better, they should not be a word or evewn a word where you substitute a letter with a number like a 1 for an L or a 0 for an O.

Your password should be random, it should have upper and lower case letters, at least one or two nfumbers and at least one symbol such as a comma, exclamation mark or question mark etc.

One thing you can do and which is as close to random as you can get without truely using a password generator is to think of a sentence that you can remember but if it's nonsense for others. Here is an example, let's say you like Pizza, you have a guide dog and you received your guide do in 2014. Here is a sentence:

 

I love Pizza and my dog whom I got in 2014 loves it too!

 

Note the exclamation mark at the end of that sentrence, now take all the first letters or all the words as well as the number, either 2014 or 14 and make sure you either preserve upper case words or reverse them, e.g. use lower case letters for words which are upper case and vice versa, here is what you get if you take it the way it is written:

 

IlPamdwIgi14lit!

 

This is a 16-character password which would be virtually impossible to guess by anybody and virtually impossible to crack even by a sophisticated program. All you have to do is remember whatever nonsense sentence you come up with to know the password. Of course if you have a couple of dozen places where you need passwords even this is a challenge which is where a good password manager comes in handy.

Sieghard

I have a Netgear router at home and an Asus router at work and have no issues with either one.

Laura, I suggest you maybe try a different browser or try to turn off the virtual cursor and tab to see if you can type in the user name and password.

If this doesn’t work I would either get sighted help or call Microsoft Accessibility to see if they can help.

If you haven’t changed the default password of your router it is absolutely crutial that you do so, nowadays every router manufacturer should make this a manditory first step when somebody buys a new router and connects it. There are probably millions of routers out there where the password is “password” or whatever default the manufacturer has, it is super easy to Google that information and to find out what default password each manufacturer uses. Of course most of them very helpfully display their brand or logo on the login screen so it’s even easier for somebody to see if the password is still the default. This is one way how hackers gain access to your network, computer and potentially use your device or devices in a denial of service attack. To me it’s little different than if you bank or Apple had a default user name called “password” or Apple123” and wouldn’t require you to change it. Unfortunately most people nowadays understand the importance of a good password for websites, but many people don’t even know a router has an interface one can log into and that it’s important to do this and change the default password.

You need to log in to your router using a web browser. Usually the address is 192.1680.1. But check your documentation. If you've never set a password, then the user names is admin and password is admin. The web GUI is usually quite navigable with JAWS.

Re: Will this new Microsoft speech dictation software work well with JAWS?

Jim Fettgather
 

This Microsoft Word add in adds a  dictation tab to the ribbon of Microsoft Word.

So for example, to start dictation, you would press Alt D, followed by S.

 

It works just fine, is quite accurate, but there is no feedback from Jaws as you are speaking.

You simply need to stop dictation, and go back and review your text line by line, to see if there any errors you need to correct.

It is nothing fancy, in fact, it is most likely the same speech recognition found in the Windows speech recognition, but now can be used directly from Microsoft Word.

It is not a bad deal at all for being free.

Re: How accessible is Word Press for creating websites with JAWS?

Stephanie Switzer
 

I think it's under your profile. I'll have to look to be sure, but i do remember having to turn it off when creating a new user. I always go to the "users" link, then hit the "edit" link below the name i want, then look for it there. I hope this helps at least a little bit. I am an able to check my site to verify this so I will have to look on wordpress.com and hopefully i can varify these instructions on there. I go through the users link because I have more than one user on my site. However, I can't remember if it's actually necessary to go through the users link. You might just be able to click on "my profile"and access it from there. Not sure! I hope this helps.

WordPress is pretty accessible out of the box. One thing I would recommend
is to turn off the visual editor because that will mess with screen readers.
David I would bet that that was one of the things that was messing with
jaws. You need to uncheck the box that says visual editor.
Also some themes can mess with screen readers as well.
To answer the other persons question, no you don't need to know HTML or any
other type of coding as word press covers the basics but if you want to get
more in depth it wouldn't hurt to know son. By in-depth I mean making your
website look nicer. Like say you wanted to make a list with headings at the
top and then a list of items below that. You might need to know some HTML in
order to do that.
I learned the word press on the fly back into thousand nine, but I'm sure if
you Google there will be some beginner tutorials out there somewhere. You
might also check on bard if you have that because I've seen they posted some
books on WordPress from time to time. They should at least have one or two
that can help a blind individual with who is just beginning withWordPress.
Some of the books might be slightly out of date, but they should have some
useful information.

Is Word Press accessible with JAWS for creating websites? Where is a

Hi Laura,

 

If you changed your Facebook password then it still makes no sense how somebody would get access to your Facebook account by hacking into your router.

Have you managed to change your router’s password?

So is the likelyhood someone's snooping on your wifi connection and can access your FB password that way. Even assuming someone accessed your wifi, your FB password is sent to them encrypted, and the kind of equipment needed to break that encryption is not sitting in the back of someone's van parked in front of your place. It's more likely Facebook's just being a problem child.

It hasn’t been changed in almost a year but I have my own user name and password for the wireless router …… not the default.  Someone has been logging into my Facebook page using my own IP address.  I was told they are able to do this because they have hacked into my wireless router.  I was also told this individual would have the ability to see everything I do on the web; web sites I go to, links I click on, questions I Google, what time I did these things, etc.  At this point I’m thinking I will disconnect the wireless router and hardwire the internet cable straight into my laptop …… Will doing this stop that person from viewing everything I do on the web and logging into my Facebook page?

Laura, I suggest you maybe try a different browser or try to turn off the virtual cursor and tab to see if you can type in the user name and password.

If this doesn’t work I would either get sighted help or call Microsoft Accessibility to see if they can help.

If you haven’t changed the default password of your router it is absolutely crutial that you do so, nowadays every router manufacturer should make this a manditory first step when somebody buys a new router and connects it. There are probably millions of routers out there where the password is “password” or whatever default the manufacturer has, it is super easy to Google that information and to find out what default password each manufacturer uses. Of course most of them very helpfully display their brand or logo on the login screen so it’s even easier for somebody to see if the password is still the default. This is one way how hackers gain access to your network, computer and potentially use your device or devices in a denial of service attack. To me it’s little different than if you bank or Apple had a default user name called “password” or Apple123” and wouldn’t require you to change it. Unfortunately most people nowadays understand the importance of a good password for websites, but many people don’t even know a router has an interface one can log into and that it’s important to do this and change the default password.

You need to log in to your router using a web browser. Usually the address is 192.1680.1. But check your documentation. If you've never set a password, then the user names is admin and password is admin. The web GUI is usually quite navigable with JAWS.

Do you use a smart phone and does it have FB access?

 

Do you use a tablet and does it have FB access?

 

Both of these would sho as unknown devices unless you know their ID's on the network.

 

And shutting down Wireless Access ang going cabled will stop them from getting into your network but it won't stop them from getting into your FB account.

 

My very strong suggestion is that you get someone who knows more about that router and security issues than you do and let them close up the holes you have.

 

Trying to do it your self if you don't know what you are doing can make a real mess.

I learned the word press on the fly back into thousand nine, but I'm sure if
you Google there will be some beginner tutorials out there somewhere. You
might also check on bard if you have that because I've seen they posted some
books on WordPress from time to time. They should at least have one or two

Some of the books might be slightly out of date, but they should have some

I learned the word press on the fly back into thousand nine, but I'm sure if you Google there will be some beginner tutorials out there somewhere. You might also check on bard if you have that because I've seen they posted some books on WordPress from time to time. They should at least have one or two that can help a blind individual with who is just beginning withWordPress. Some of the books might be slightly out of date, but they should have some useful information.

I'm curious to know the answer too. A sighted person, computer tech,

WordPress is not that accessible for working on a website. Posting,
yes. But building a website, No. She is learning a lot working with
a screen reader. She was the one who said what is on the screen for
the sighted is not always what your screen reader is reading out to
you. Last week, she had to turn off JAWS because as it was reading
out the screen, the curser was moving along like the proverbial ball.
She was not able to take over even though we were using Team viewer,

wireless headsets and keyboards are at risk too.

if useing a wireless headset or keyboard they can access your computer this way too by logging everything you say on the headset or what you are typeing on the keyboard.
these two devices need to be a secured wireless keyboard and/or headset to block them.

So is the likelyhood someone's snooping on your wifi connection and can access your FB password that way. Even assuming someone accessed your wifi, your FB password is sent to them encrypted, and the kind of equipment needed to break that encryption is not sitting in the back of someone's van parked in front of your place. It's more likely Facebook's just being a problem child.

Laura, I suggest you maybe try a different browser or try to turn off the virtual cursor and tab to see if you can type in the user name and password.

If this doesn’t work I would either get sighted help or call Microsoft Accessibility to see if they can help.

If you haven’t changed the default password of your router it is absolutely crutial that you do so, nowadays every router manufacturer should make this a manditory first step when somebody buys a new router and connects it. There are probably millions of routers out there where the password is “password” or whatever default the manufacturer has, it is super easy to Google that information and to find out what default password each manufacturer uses. Of course most of them very helpfully display their brand or logo on the login screen so it’s even easier for somebody to see if the password is still the default. This is one way how hackers gain access to your network, computer and potentially use your device or devices in a denial of service attack. To me it’s little different than if you bank or Apple had a default user name called “password” or Apple123” and wouldn’t require you to change it. Unfortunately most people nowadays understand the importance of a good password for websites, but many people don’t even know a router has an interface one can log into and that it’s important to do this and change the default password.

You need to log in to your router using a web browser. Usually the address is 192.1680.1. But check your documentation. If you've never set a password, then the user names is admin and password is admin. The web GUI is usually quite navigable with JAWS.

HI,
Thanks, Ted,
I appreciate your answer because reading fast is needed in various environments including work environments.

I am asking if the voices purchased for $115 render words and addresses reasonably accurately at higher speeds without having to
Reread numbers and figures.


If any one uses those voices to work with numbers and or addresses, please comment.

Many thanks.

that depends on the voice you use. some are basey and harder to understand.
others, mainly the mens voices are much clearer. i do not see the need for speed if you are not in a work environment.
people don't talk 1000 words per minute and i don't listen to the computer at that speed either.

Since these voices cost $115, are they really clear when speaking numbers and

Some people say Eloquence does the best at higher speeds in terms of reading

Of getting the Realspeak Solo Direct Voices to work by themselves outside of
JAWS within the Windows Operating Systems? The reason why I ask this is because
I have "Gold Wave", an audio software that comes with a text-to-speech
converter, and it seems the only voices I can get to work in there are the SAPI
voices I've installed on my machine. I've tried installing the Realspeak voices
from the CD that came with JAWS 8.0, but it says these versions will only work
on 32-bit operating systems. I want to try putting registry keys for these
voices in the Registry Editor, but I'm not sure if this will actually work.
What can I do next?

Both of these would sho as unknown devices unless you know their ID's on the network.

 

And shutting down Wireless Access ang going cabled will stop them from getting into your network but it won't stop them from getting into your FB account.

 

My very strong suggestion is that you get someone who knows more about that router and security issues than you do and let them close up the holes you have.

 

Trying to do it your self if you don't know what you are doing can make a real mess.
