I will admit to doing this every once in a blue moon, too, but it's really not necessary.  If you have had Windows Defender (or anything similar) running on your system continuously it should have done a full scan on first run, compiled its database of what was scanned and when, and only need to do a quick scan subsequently.

I happen to have kicked off a full manual scan a little over 3 hours ago since I had two detections, both of exe installers I'd never run one of which was ancient, over the last few days.  I get why my CCleaner installer was detected after the signatures for the backdoor it contained were released, but I can't understand how a utility that I'd had sitting around "in case I needed it" since 2015 was just getting flagged now.  That thing's been scanned many times since then by several different antivirus products.  Why Windows Defender detected a trojan now is a real mystery.

Re: Scheduling a Scan Using Windows Defender

 

My understanding of realtime protection was more in keeping with Randy's comment, or any time you copy a file to your hard drive from any other source.  You can sometimes set up "on insertion" USB thumb drive/SD Card scanning as well.

I'll have to look up whether Windows Defender realtime protection triggers a scan every time you try to kick off an executable on the system, but if it does that's horribly inefficient as those files should have been scanned when introduced to the system and been stopped then if an infection was found.

Rick,

         None of the above should actually be necessary.  Windows Defender, like all antivirus/security suite programs, puts in its own scheduled tasks when you turn it on to use it.  On my system there are four:  Windows Defender Cache Maintenance, Windows Defender Cleanup, Windows Defender Scheduled Scan, & Windows Defender Verification.

         There would be no point in having an antivirus/antimalware or security suite that did not run scans occasionally on its own and self-update its own definitions.  Windows Defender does both of these things.

text columns in word questions; and proofreading schemes.

mike mcglashon
 

Hi guys:
 
I have two questions;
1.  regarding text columns:
back sometime ago, there was discussion on this list on how to read text columns within a word doc;
(e.g. two text columns);
The response on handling such matters was to use the control arrows whilst arrowing through a doc,
Although this might be a solution in some instances,
what if I am reading the doc straight through, say a legal case as the other fella suggested?
One would not sit there and arrow line-by-line through a case; for this would be non-efficient and imppractical.
Any ideas?
 
2: regarding proofreading speech schemes:
I have delved into using proofreading schemes and have noticed a “strange but maybe neat ” phenomenon;
 
It seems that when using one of these schemes, (e.g. attributes, font, and colors);
jaws when encountering either bold or italics, the voice will change from “read” to “huge harry” or something similar thereof;
However,
when encountering changes in color or font,
jaws merely says the new color or font in a different voice but then immediately reverts back to default voice when reading the actual text.
Example:
am reading along and color of text is black on white;
Let’s say I changed some text to “red fur rule”,
I would like jaws not only to change to the voice when he says “red” but I wish for him to stay in that mode and read all the red text in that voice;
when the color of text changes back to black then jaws should default back to his regular voice.
 
I know this is a lot, but I don’t know any other way to ask these questions?
 
I hope I haven’t confused anyone with these ramblings?
 
If anyone has any ideas, ph: 618 783 9331 for more in depth instructions on how to accomplish this?
Please advise further.
 
Sincerely Yours,
 
Mike M.

Scheduling a Scan Using Windows Defender

Rick Miller
 

Dear Listers:

 

I have recently decided I prefer to use Windows Defender as my antiviral software after I found out it could be used that way with users of Windows 10.  However, I cannot figure out how, using JAWS, to schedule Windows Defender to do a scan on a regular basis.  I have checked online to find out how to do this, and the online directions I found say:

 

·         Search for and open Schedule tasks.

·         In the left pane, expand Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows, and then scroll down and double-click (or press) the Windows Defender folder.

·         In the top center pane, double-click (or press twice) Windows Defender Scheduled Scan.

·         In the Windows Defender Scheduled Scan Properties (Local Computer) window, select the Triggers tab, go to the bottom of the window, and then tap or click New.

·         Specify how often you want scans to run and when you’d like them to start.

 

How do you find and open Windows Defender Tasks using JAWS?  I have tried getting into Properties, but have not been able to find the Tasks tab.  I have tried using the Shift+Tab keystroke, but it has not met with success.  Can any of you help me or give me some advice?  What do I do after I open Windows Defender?

Re: How to get Dec-TALK Express to work with JAWS Version 14 and later versions

Dave Durber
 

Hello again Shai:

After replying to your email the other day, I called JFW Tech Support. Luckily, I got Dennis Goodin, who I've known for a very long time indeed. After explaining my difficulty, he suggested I use the JAWS command: JAWS/INSERT+CTRL+S command, to open the "select A Voice Profile" Dialog and, guess what, the DEC-TALK Express was listed there. However, when I Pressed ENTER to select it and on the OK Button, there was a brief pause and JAWS continued to use Eloquence.

So, I returned to the Synthesizer and Braille Manager, ENTERED on the Add, Modify or Change Devices button, chose the default, which is "Synthesizers", ENTERED on the next button, selected the DEC-TALK Express, which was already checked and activated the Next Button. In the dialog, there is a combo box, which lists all the Serial Ports which are available. As I mentioned previously, COM1 was the only one listed.

However, this time, instead of just accepting and presuming COM1 was already highlighted because it was the only listed Serieal Port, I pressed the DOWN ARROW, JAWS announced "COM1" for the second time, indicating that COM1 had been highlighted.

I activated the Next and Close Buttons to close the Synthesizer and Braille Manager, restarted JAWS, accessed the "select A Voice Profile" Dialog, selected the DEC-TALK Express, pressed ENTER to select it and on the OK Button, to close the dialog and, hay presto, JAWS was speaking using the DEC-Talk Express.

In your first reply to my email, you mentioned that you were using JAWS, with a DEC-TALK Express, through a USB to Serial adaptor, in a 64 BIT version of Windows 10. Please explain to me, how you got the DEC-TALK Express to work in a 64 BIT environment.

I look forward to your reply, as I need to install Windows 10 on my systems and I will need to use The DEC-TALK in a 64 BIT environment.

Thanks in anticipation.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

The kodi screennreader really isn't a full screenreader like people are thinking. It is just a little addon that can speak kodi commands using a speech engine. If people insist on using the sapi engine by itself then of course they are having problems. If they insist on using the sapi engine then why not use something like nvda or jaws to do the handling of the sapi engine?

Re: How to get Dec-TALK Express to work with JAWS Version 14 and later versions

Tim Ford
 

Hi All,

What are the benefits of using a Dec-TALK Express over the modern options? I have one sitting in a drawer, needing a repair to its power cord socket, so if there is a good reason, I would get that fixed!

I go back to the 1980s, and my share of synthetic speech boards or stand-alone devices, all of which were really bad by today's standards. I thought I had the perfect device when I got a Dectalk. I then got the then-new Audapter, created by Noel Runyun, and it was truly wonderful, fast, responsive, stable.

Fast forward to when JAWS for Windows came out with that excellent built-in Eloquence voice. For a while, the limited processing power and speed of those earlier computers caused me to continue use of the Audapter; it is a stand-alone device like the Dec-Talk, so it helped a lot to take the load off the computer. But at some point, computers and Eloquence became, in my humble opinion, much better than the Dec-Talk or the Audapter. After using just Eloquence with JAWS for several years, I dug out the Audapter, and was shocked by how it was surpassed by the modern technology.

So again, what is the advantage today in using the Dec-Talk?

Sincerely,
Tim Ford

Hello everyone:

I Have installed Windows 7 Professional 32 BIT on a PC.

I have a DEC-TALK Express external synthesizer which I would like to
use with JAWS Version 14., with a view to using it with the latest
version of JAWS in Windows 10 32 BIT, if the latest Version of JAWS
will support this synthesizer.

I connected the DEC-TALK Express to the on-board serial port. I used
the Synthesizer and Braill Manager in JAWS 14, to add the DEC-Talk
Express Synthesizer. However, when I accessed the Synthesizer
Submenue, under Utilities in JAWS 14, the DEC-TALK Express is not listed.

What do I have to do in order for JAWS 14 to send the speech output
to the DEC-TALK Express and to have the said synthesizer to appear in
the list of added synthesizers?

Thank you in anticipation for any and all suggestions.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Hello Shai:

When I added the DEC-TALK Express in Windows 32 BIT, I accepted the only com port, which was com1, and accepted the default settings: 9600, n, 8, 1. I restarted JAWS 14. I looked in the list of synthesizers and did not find it listed there. I then restarted the computer, but, when I checked the list of synthesizers, there is no DEC-TALK Express.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Hello Dave,
Are you sure that you are using the correct com port for the DecTalk?
Have you attempted to restart JAWS? What occurs when you attempt to
find it in the voice adjustment dialog? I am using the latest version
of JAWS with a DecTalk Express on a Windows10 64bit. I am using it
with a serial to USB cable. I find that this set up works well, but
that once in a while on a web page JAWS will crash and I will need to
restart it.

Of course it is more difficult for us blind individuals to do every

we who are fortunate to be so. Can you imagine the problem solving
skills we must develop. To accomplish even some simple things? Which
improves our intelligence, and creative abilities? Because they feel
so, they fear blindness, and make all they do visually oriented.
Their world moves so rapidly. Without a thought for us. Or that we
might need to keep up. When we first began selling the idea of
accessible smart phones, we pointed out, and rightly so, the
distinct advantages for sighted smart phone users to use the
accessible screen reader. Built in to their phones. Do they use
these features. I don't mean serie, I mean voice over. They do not.
Why is this, I ask? It is because they would have to face a steep
learning curve. Yet, many of us scale that curve. With less effort.
Than we might have believed. Every day, I am astonished at the number
of hurtles I overcome. I didn't believe I could have performed. I am
constantly amazed at the enormous intelligence demonstrated by blind
people who share the lists to which I belong.

Only if you can see... There are sighted people here that will tell us
everything is so much better than it ever was for accessibility. Ha!
It is harder and harder to do alot of every day things...

play all kind of tricks on Outlook. Sometimes my Sent column will say
zero, and there is nothing there, so I have to exit, come back in,
and there they are. When I come in and a few times during the day I
have to press Control+Y and 4 to go to 4carolyna@windstream, then
Control+y and I to go to my Inbox, then Alt+Tab to get any new

From what I can tell it has to do with the way windows does its
virtual desktop scheme. Narrator will say the same thing from time to
time. It is a hidden thing that only screenreaders seem to pick up
on. Nothing wrong and nothing to be done about it.

Ann, Marv here. I have had this problem for some time; After jaws
says windows overlay windows 0, I just use windows plus m and the
above mentioned disappears with no more interference. There are no

the windows 10 list talked about this for a while. I don't recall
there being a reason given, but it didn't seem to indicate a problem.
Just a Windows 10 gremlin.

Hello,

Jaws 18 and Windows 10 ……

Normally when I turn the computer on I wait approximately 10 to 20
seconds and then Jaws will say “Jaws home use” and I’m ready to go.

Yesterday, when I turned the computer on after about 5 or 10
seconds Jaws said “Jaws for windows, overlay windows zero, overlay
windows zero, overlay windows zero”. Then, after another 5 or 10
seconds Jaws said “Jaws home use” and I was ready to go.

I’ve had this computer for almost four months and this has never
happened. Has anybody experienced anything like this and is this
something to be concerned about? Thanks for any input.
