Re: Antivirus suites

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi,
 
Okay, in Windows 7 MSSE & Windows Defender are 2 different programs.  MSSE is for antivirus, & Windows Defender protects / scans for malware / spyware.
 
In a nutshell, in Windows 8 & 10, Windows Defender does everything, antivirus, malware, & spyware protection all rolled into 1 program.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi,

 

I use Windows 7 and wish to learn which is easier to use per antivirus and firewalls

Between MSE and Windows Defender.

 

Thanks.

Bible software for Windows 10

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

Does anyone know of Bible software that works with windows 10 and Jaws?

Or, just works with Windows 10?

My wife had to buy a new computer and her old Bible software will not install on Windows 10.  It was written for Windows 3.1…

I agree partly, I have often received phone calls or had messages pop up on some websites where I was asked to call a certain number because a virus was on my computer. The phone calls usually claim to be from Microsoft and that my computer has a virus and I need to let them connect so they can fix it. Most of us hopefully are tech savvy enough not to do this, but many people especially older people who have very little technical knowledge are vulnerable and in that case it is not true that nobody wants to hack you or me.
My Uncle in Germany who is a very intelligent person and who was a top level management person at Daimler is now in his mid 80's, he fell for one of these calls and next thing he knew the guy on the phone told him that he had locked down his computer and in order for him to return it to my Uncle my Uncle had to wire him 300 Euros. These ransomware attacks are extremely worrisome and while they do target universities, hospitals and what have you, many of them do also target just you and me and the average Joe. Many people would pay a few hundred Dollars in order to get access to their computer again, if the hackers keep the demands reasonable enough it's something most people will pay. Most hackers also will actually return control and remove whatever they installed because they know that if the word gets around that this is not so nobody will pay them. If your child is kidnapped and you are requested to pay a ransom you can afford and know with certainty that your child will be returned unharmed what do you do? You pay it of course. If you are almost 100% certain that your child will be killed anyways you might want to think twice and try other options like getting the police involved or whatever.
I don't think we need to be paranoid about this, but just to say nobody would possibly target you is also not a good position to take. And don't assume you are smarter than the hackers, these ransomware attacks can be extremely sophisticated and very smart people have and are falling for them, you are not immune.

Regards,
Sieghard

No one wants to hack our pc or our facebook... If we were rich and famous or had a high security job maybe. Otherwise no one is interested in hacking you or me... It just isnt worth the work involved. People need to stop over hyping hacking it is not an issue for the average user that uses common sensse while on the net. Sure a sniper could shoot me as I walk out my door. but do we worry about that constantly?

Someheadsets do have longer range, but nowadays usually are digital and once again it would not be very straight forward to intercept this and listen, but even if one could this would not give anybody access to your Facebook account or other accounts which would only be possible if they can somehow record what you type on your keyboard.

if useing a wireless headset or keyboard they can access your

these two devices need to be a secured wireless keyboard and/or

WordPress is pretty accessible out of the box. One thing I would recommend

David I would bet that that was one of the things that was messing with

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

Re: Getting Jaws to recognize highlight bars

fenderwal@...
 

Hey Shannon. I don't know if this works or not, but I found it in the JAWS help topics.

 

Good luck,

Lou N.

Assigning Custom Highlight Colors

To assign Custom Highlight Colors, you first need to identify text with the colors you wish to use. This might be text that is already present on the screen, but is difficult to access with other JAWS features. If text of the colors you wish to use is not already present on the screen, you may need to set the text color in the application. This is not an option in all applications, but should be possible in most word processing programs. Verify text color with the SayColor keystroke, INSERT+5.

Once text with the desired colors is identified, move the focus of the active cursor to this text. Press INSERT+F2 to bring up the Run JAWS Manager dialog, and select Custom Highlight Assign from the list. CTRL+INSERT+H also opens Custom Highlight Assign.

This brings up the Choose an Option dialog. This dialog lists the following options:

  • Set Foreground and Background
  • Set Foreground Only
  • Set Background Only

Select the desired option and press ENTER. This brings up the Add Custom Highlight dialog to confirm you want the selected colors assigned as a Custom Highlight. Use the TAB key to move to the Do Not Show This Dialog Again checkbox and press SPACEBAR to bypass this dialog in the future. Press ENTER for OK, and this brings up the Custom Highlight Options dialog.

Use the Custom Highlight Options Dialog to view the Custom Highlights currently assigned within an application, delete Custom Highlights you are no longer using, and specify if JAWS recognizes only Windows highlights, only Custom Highlights, or both. The default is for JAWS to recognize both Windows highlights and Custom Highlights. Press ENTER to accept the default settings, and return to the active application. Text matching the options you selected are then treated as highlighted within the application.

Subject: Getting Jaws to recognize highlight bars

 

Hi all,

 

I have royally messed up. I was using WE in my accounting program and couldn’t get Jaws to see the highlight bar in the menus of the program. I know that the colors of the program can be changed so I played around trying to get JAWS to see the color as I arrow up and down but when I did that I broke WE and now it won’t read it anymore.

As far as the mouse in JAWS it refuses to say anything but blank and insists that the color if It will even try is black on black. This I know is not true. I can’t get JAWS to find text that I know is on the screen and that It will read out with insert B.

If I can’t get the mouse to report anything but blank and black on black how do I set the highlight color so it will read the highlight bar of the menu?

The touch curser is useless in this case. It will not find the menu at all.

 

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Shannon

Hi. There are also plenty of shortcut keys to use for WordPress and some of them are not dissimilar to MS word, the headings for example. Control+1 - 6 if my memory serves me correctly though it could be control+shift. I can send a link here to a list of them if anyone is interested.


Cheers.

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.

Steve.  i have also built many websites using WordPress and literally done two of them over the last couple of weeks.  Just out of interest, what theme do you recommend and how do you insert links using the buttons on the toolbar?  I must admit after returning to creating review sites after a few years break, I've found WordPress to be better than ever now.

Re: 2016 and advanced find

brian albriton
 

As it turns out, it appears this find issue is less of a problem with jaws
16. On the surface that doesn't make clear sense to me. It may make sense to
someone else with some hhigher technical knowledge than yours truly.
When I do the advanced find with jaws sixteen running, the find does not
hang on the stop button.
Methinks I'll contact Freedom Scientific support.

Hi, Richard.
I use control-shift-f to bring up the advanced find.
I'm still playing with f3 and will try control-e.
So here's an example.
I'd press control shift-f and the initial choice is a edit combo wher you
can type in a string you might find in the subject.
So I would type in sticky keys
Press enter and after a few secondsthe program would stop searching.
At that point I would press f6 to get quickly to the results.
I would then select all the messages either delete or perhaps move them
somewhere.
All the best, Brian

Since updating to outlook 2016, the advanced find dialog hangs on after I
press the find now button. It hangs on stop and stays there.

It used to simply find what I was looking for, (say something in the subject
line) and I could find the list of messages by pressing the f6 key.

Has anyone else had this issue?

Re: wireless headsets and keyboards are at risk too.

While it is harder to break a good password or encryption code, it can be done if someone thinks the reward is worth the effort.

 

Most passwords are fairly easy to break.  Many people that do use good passwords and keys will have a copy somewhere in a billfold or on one of their computers or phones for convenience.

 

It is just a matter of how much effort and expense someone is willing to put forth to get something they think is worth more.

 

Any effort expended on one break-in can be cheaply used for thousands of others.

 

Are you aware that people are spending $100 and more to have their medical and other information made available to anyone willing to pay for it?  Think DNA kits.

No, really, it isn't if you take the time to change the router passwords and configure your WiFi with strong passwords (which, of course, also encrypts traffic).

It is not a simple matter to break into most anything these days if the person using the technologies actually takes the time to configure the security features that are readily available on all of them.  Most don't, making all conversation regarding what can be versus what is revolve around whether they did the appropriate security setup or not.

The amount of unwarranted paranoia around security is reaching fever pitch.   Do your basic security setup and it is highly unlikely that you'll have any problems with your network being hacked and exercise safe browsing and downloading behavior and you will be very unlikely to ever get any infection that an antivirus or antimalware program would detect.

You, for any private you, are not generally the favored target of most attackers.  They've got bigger fish to fry.  The possible exception to this is ransomware, and it's not difficult to harden your system against it to the maximum extent possible and even if no hardening is done, most ransomware is invited in by the user - it doesn't generally wheedle its way in (though it can on some occasions).

Re: antivirus program suites

 

A second for Mike B's request!!

Prior to Windows 8, Microsoft Security Essentials was the Microsoft built-in antivirus and Windows Defender was the built-in antimalware.

With the advent of Windows 8 and continuing afterward these two functions were combined into Windows Defender (and Microsoft Security Essentials disappeared).

When it comes to accessible antivirus and/or antimalware, and depending on the era of Windows, you're not going to beat Microsoft Security Essentials coupled with Windows Defender for Windows 7 and earlier or just "the new" Windows Defender for Windows 8 and later.   You will get all kinds of contentious argument that these "aren't adequate" but I have yet to see them be inadequate for anyone who exercises even the least bit of conscientiousness when interacting with the web.

There are no doubt better products depending on what your particular definition of "better" happens to be.  I have yet to hear of any of these having the ease of accessibility of the built-in Microsoft solutions.
