Re: Why is Jaws saying "send mail"

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hey Shannon.
I think it's announcing the type of link you're pointing to. "Send Mail Link". JAWS 10 does that in Outlook 2003, on Mozilla Firefox, and even in Internet Explorer. As for how to make it stop, you could go to the Configuration Manager (Settings Center in JAWS 18), and click on HTML options. I think there might be something in there that lets you turn the "Link Type" announcement on or off.

Subject: Why is Jaws saying "send mail"

Good morning,

As the subject line states, why is Jaws 18 saying “send mail” when reading a line that contains an email address when using the arrow keys up and down in outlook 2010?

 

That text is not truly written in the line of text. If you read that same line word by word those words are not there.

Why is it saying it? How can I make it stop.

I don’t want to hear things that are not there.

I often find Jaws telling me false things and leaving things out that are there, especially with the OCR, so I don’t want it to intentionally tell me wrong things. It won’t tell me things that I know are there either. I find this frustrating.

 

 

Thanks

Shannon

audio-ducking also in Startup Wizard, turn it off there for sure/permanency

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

Hello,

     If you’d like to quit the audio-ducking permanently, … until you’d like it to be working again that is, here’s what to do. Go to your JAWS startup Wizard (jaws+h and arrow up to startup wizard). After pressing enter on this, you’ll be on the main page. You can press the tab to go to the next page, and tab until JAWS reports “lower the volume of other programs while JAWS is speaking.” This’ll be a radiobutto, and you can uncheck this if you don’t want it on. Keep pressing the next key until you get out of the wizard, and you should be good.

Hi,

 

Press Insert Space, then D.  If it says Duck Other Audio, then it was off.  You want Do Not Duck Other Audio.

Hi listers ken here. I noticed my system sounds and even pandora were both extremely soft. I tested to make sure pandor’s volume was maxed and still very low. then when jaws 40 minute mode was about to expire and I shut it down to switch to NVDA suddenly pandora sounded right.  did I turn on audio ducking by accident and how do I shut that off in settings center? is it a toggle pretty sure butterfingers ken did it by accident.

Jonas,

Are you asking if Randy got a "free NAS"? Maybe you already know this, but checking out "FreeNAS" on Google told me that it was simply the name of an open source software for running NAS units, here is what it says on Wikipedia:

FreeNAS is a free and open-source network-attached storage (NAS) software based on FreeBSD and the OpenZFS file system. It is licensed under the terms of the BSD License and runs on commodity x86-64 hardware.
FreeNAS supports Windows , OS X and Unix clients and various virtualization hosts such as XenServer and VMware using the SMB , AFP , NFS , iSCSI , SSH , rsync and FTP/TFTP protocols.
Advanced FreeNAS features include full-disk encryption and a plug-in architecture for third-party software.

I was referring to Microsoft backup schemes... I gave up on finding an accessible backup program years ago and this method works for me. It may not work for everyone but when everything you hold dear is on a backup and it just wont work for whatever reason all your docs,music and pictures are lost forever. only took a couple of these situations to find something foolproof... Keep in mind this was before large amounts of cheap cloud storage was available.
thats how I ended up with a complete copy of every thing on a FreeNas server with a RAID 5 array. A second complete copy on a network drive and yet another on a USB drive and... Yep one more on my computer in addition to the media drive that is in daily use. Losing several years of the family photos wont ever happen again.

I keep all my important stuff on a separate hard drive in my system and copy the whole drive once in a while. My really important data goes on the cloud. Dropbox, Google drive and One drive.
Here is how I do it.
On the second hard drive (Mine is Media)create the folders you want to move. I.E. Favorites, Documents, Downloads, Pictures and videos.
Now go to c:\users\your user name\
highlight the Favorites folder then alt +enter. Now ctrl + tab to
the location tab. Then tab twice to move folder. press it. Now shift tab once. press t for this PC press enter then press m for media (yours may be different) press enter then f for favorites. Now tab to select folder and press it. Tab to OK then press yes to move the folder to the new location.
Repeat for the rest of the folders. Now Windows will put everything in these folders from now on and the library links will go to these folders from now on.
If you use thunderbird copy the thunderbird folders from c:\users\your user name\app data\local and roaming.
Now if the main drive fails or you need to do a clean install. Just
copy the Thunderbird folders back to appdata local and roaming and all your info is there just move the folders to the Media drive again and it is like it was before the crash.
You will still need to install apps and setup your accounts.But with
Windows 10 that is fairly easy. Not like win 7. One of the few
things that is really better. :)

Re: windows 10 backup

No not really. it does power down the harddrives and has cpu stepping for power savings. So at idle it is not csucking much juice.
no sound or video useing power either. Mine is a headless server in a cabinet. This means no Monitor sound or keyboard. Just a case with a network cable and a power plug. All management is via network or ssh.

Just like win 7. I create the install media on my windows machine plug it into the server power up and have a sighted person read the screen. this only takes a few minutes then it will have the IP address at the bottom of the screen. With the IP you go back to the windows machine and log into a web based interface that works better with Firefox than IE. I haven tried Chrome. Everything is accessible in v11 and v9.10. Stay away from v10 beside totally dropping development it was not accessible at all. Well unless you consider SSH accessible. witch takes more sighted help to set up in v10.

Jonas,

Are you asking if Randy got a "free NAS"? Maybe you already know this, but checking out "FreeNAS" on Google told me that it was simply the name of an open source software for running NAS units, here is what it says on Wikipedia:

FreeNAS is a free and open-source network-attached storage (NAS) software based on FreeBSD and the OpenZFS file system. It is licensed under the terms of the BSD License and runs on commodity x86-64 hardware.
FreeNAS supports Windows , OS X and Unix clients and various virtualization hosts such as XenServer and VMware using the SMB , AFP , NFS , iSCSI , SSH , rsync and FTP/TFTP protocols.
Advanced FreeNAS features include full-disk encryption and a plug-in architecture for third-party software.

Regards,
Sieghard

I was referring to Microsoft backup schemes... I gave up on finding an accessible backup program years ago and this method works for me. It may not work for everyone but when everything you hold dear is on a backup and it just wont work for whatever reason all your docs,music and pictures are lost forever. only took a couple of these situations to find something foolproof... Keep in mind this was before large amounts of cheap cloud storage was available.
thats how I ended up with a complete copy of every thing on a FreeNas server with a RAID 5 array. A second complete copy on a network drive and yet another on a USB drive and... Yep one more on my computer in addition to the media drive that is in daily use. Losing several years of the family photos wont ever happen again.

I keep all my important stuff on a separate hard drive in my system and copy the whole drive once in a while. My really important data goes on the cloud. Dropbox, Google drive and One drive.
Here is how I do it.
On the second hard drive (Mine is Media)create the folders you want to move. I.E. Favorites, Documents, Downloads, Pictures and videos.
Now go to c:\users\your user name\
highlight the Favorites folder then alt +enter. Now ctrl + tab to
the location tab. Then tab twice to move folder. press it. Now shift tab once. press t for this PC press enter then press m for media (yours may be different) press enter then f for favorites. Now tab to select folder and press it. Tab to OK then press yes to move the folder to the new location.
Repeat for the rest of the folders. Now Windows will put everything in these folders from now on and the library links will go to these folders from now on.
If you use thunderbird copy the thunderbird folders from c:\users\your user name\app data\local and roaming.
Now if the main drive fails or you need to do a clean install. Just
copy the Thunderbird folders back to appdata local and roaming and all your info is there just move the folders to the Media drive again and it is like it was before the crash.
You will still need to install apps and setup your accounts.But with
Windows 10 that is fairly easy. Not like win 7. One of the few
things that is really better. :)

I havent tried but it has a Plex plugin and does support apple's network protocols. The Freenas forum is very helpful and if you can think of it someone has tried to do it. :)
Since it is based on FreeBSD there iare tons of plugins out there.

If it never goes to sleep it sounds like it would also be a power/electricity hog.

FreeNas is completly accessible. I just had to name the graphical links for the main menu  so the names were shorter and to the point.
The Lanovo thinkserver TS-145 cost me 175 with a 75 discount. Then it was just the memory and harddrives. 4TB drives are cheaper now. A 7.2TB RAID 5 array cost me 400 and the RAM was under a hundred for 8GB ECC. I will be upgrading to 16.

Jonas,

Are you asking if Randy got a "free NAS"? Maybe you already know this, but checking out "FreeNAS" on Google told me that it was simply the name of an open source software for running NAS units, here is what it says on Wikipedia:

FreeNAS is a free and open-source network-attached storage (NAS) software based on FreeBSD and the OpenZFS file system. It is licensed under the terms of the BSD License and runs on commodity x86-64 hardware.
FreeNAS supports Windows , OS X and Unix clients and various virtualization hosts such as XenServer and VMware using the SMB , AFP , NFS , iSCSI , SSH , rsync and FTP/TFTP protocols.
Advanced FreeNAS features include full-disk encryption and a plug-in architecture for third-party software.

Regards,
Sieghard

I was referring to Microsoft backup schemes... I gave up on finding an accessible backup program years ago and this method works for me. It may not work for everyone but when everything you hold dear is on a backup and it just wont work for whatever reason all your docs,music and pictures are lost forever. only took a couple of these situations to find something foolproof... Keep in mind this was before large amounts of cheap cloud storage was available.
thats how I ended up with a complete copy of every thing on a FreeNas server with a RAID 5 array. A second complete copy on a network drive and yet another on a USB drive and... Yep one more on my computer in addition to the media drive that is in daily use. Losing several years of the family photos wont ever happen again.

I keep all my important stuff on a separate hard drive in my system and copy the whole drive once in a while. My really important data goes on the cloud. Dropbox, Google drive and One drive.
Here is how I do it.
On the second hard drive (Mine is Media)create the folders you want to move. I.E. Favorites, Documents, Downloads, Pictures and videos.
Now go to c:\users\your user name\
highlight the Favorites folder then alt +enter. Now ctrl + tab to
the location tab. Then tab twice to move folder. press it. Now shift tab once. press t for this PC press enter then press m for media (yours may be different) press enter then f for favorites. Now tab to select folder and press it. Tab to OK then press yes to move the folder to the new location.
Repeat for the rest of the folders. Now Windows will put everything in these folders from now on and the library links will go to these folders from now on.
If you use thunderbird copy the thunderbird folders from c:\users\your user name\app data\local and roaming.
Now if the main drive fails or you need to do a clean install. Just
copy the Thunderbird folders back to appdata local and roaming and all your info is there just move the folders to the Media drive again and it is like it was before the crash.
You will still need to install apps and setup your accounts.But with
Windows 10 that is fairly easy. Not like win 7. One of the few
things that is really better. :)

tips, or maybe any one had experience with backing up. Just doing a backup now. And got the schedule every Sunday, so notifications will let me know need to backup. Marvin.

Re: Screen Recording/Capturing

Natalia Voegele
 

Hello, Jonas and all,

Thank you very much, I'll keep Cam Studio in mind, if I need it. It's great to have multiple options! And I  now know about Zoom, if I need to record meetings, as well. However, Debut, meets my needs, perfectly. I download it, set it up and spent a while  reading through the manual, in order to  figure out what settings to configure. I love how it works, and many of the buttons are labelled. Some of them however, are not. Is there a way, with Jaws, to label unlabelled buttons, out of curiosity? I got the sites tested and my videos uploaded to dropbox. My boss downloaded them and said that they looked perfect, yesterday! The audio came out really well, but I was afraid that the video of the screen may not have worked, along with the audio. Thank you all so incredibly much, for your help!!
Natalia

FreeNas is completly accessible. I just had to name the graphical links for the main menu  so the names were shorter and to the point.
The Lanovo thinkserver TS-145 cost me 175 with a 75 discount. Then it was just the memory and harddrives. 4TB drives are cheaper now. A 7.2TB RAID 5 array cost me 400 and the RAM was under a hundred for 8GB ECC. I will be upgrading to 16. FrreeNas is a memory hog. :)
It has been up and running with out a shut down or reboot for months now. It never goes to sleep since it has a server based motherboard.

Jonas,

Are you asking if Randy got a "free NAS"? Maybe you already know this, but checking out "FreeNAS" on Google told me that it was simply the name of an open source software for running NAS units, here is what it says on Wikipedia:

FreeNAS is a free and open-source network-attached storage (NAS) software based on FreeBSD and the OpenZFS file system. It is licensed under the terms of the BSD License and runs on commodity x86-64 hardware.
FreeNAS supports Windows , OS X and Unix clients and various virtualization hosts such as XenServer and VMware using the SMB , AFP , NFS , iSCSI , SSH , rsync and FTP/TFTP protocols.
Advanced FreeNAS features include full-disk encryption and a plug-in architecture for third-party software.

Regards,
Sieghard

I was referring to Microsoft backup schemes... I gave up on finding an accessible backup program years ago and this method works for me. It may not work for everyone but when everything you hold dear is on a backup and it just wont work for whatever reason all your docs,music and pictures are lost forever. only took a couple of these situations to find something foolproof... Keep in mind this was before large amounts of cheap cloud storage was available.
thats how I ended up with a complete copy of every thing on a FreeNas server with a RAID 5 array. A second complete copy on a network drive and yet another on a USB drive and... Yep one more on my computer in addition to the media drive that is in daily use. Losing several years of the family photos wont ever happen again.

I keep all my important stuff on a separate hard drive in my system and copy the whole drive once in a while. My really important data goes on the cloud. Dropbox, Google drive and One drive.
Here is how I do it.
On the second hard drive (Mine is Media)create the folders you want to move. I.E. Favorites, Documents, Downloads, Pictures and videos.
Now go to c:\users\your user name\
highlight the Favorites folder then alt +enter. Now ctrl + tab to the
location tab. Then tab twice to move folder. press it. Now shift tab once. press t for this PC press enter then press m for media (yours may be different) press enter then f for favorites. Now tab to select folder and press it. Tab to OK then press yes to move the folder to the new location.
Repeat for the rest of the folders. Now Windows will put everything in these folders from now on and the library links will go to these folders from now on.
If you use thunderbird copy the thunderbird folders from c:\users\your user name\app data\local and roaming.
Now if the main drive fails or you need to do a clean install. Just
copy the Thunderbird folders back to appdata local and roaming and all your info is there just move the folders to the Media drive again and it is like it was before the crash.
You will still need to install apps and setup your accounts.But with
Windows 10 that is fairly easy. Not like win 7. One of the few things
that is really better. :)

Re: windows 10 backup

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

I have no idea as to the accessibility of the FreeNAS software. I am also going to be in the market for a small business class NAS soon, but will most likely focus on Synology because this company has made their Diskstation user interface accessible, you can read more about this in an article on Jonathan Mosen's website.

Regards,
Sieghard

Jonas,

Are you asking if Randy got a "free NAS"? Maybe you already know this, but checking out "FreeNAS" on Google told me that it was simply the name of an open source software for running NAS units, here is what it says on Wikipedia:

FreeNAS is a free and open-source network-attached storage (NAS) software based on FreeBSD and the OpenZFS file system. It is licensed under the terms of the BSD License and runs on commodity x86-64 hardware.
FreeNAS supports Windows , OS X and Unix clients and various virtualization hosts such as XenServer and VMware using the SMB , AFP , NFS , iSCSI , SSH , rsync and FTP/TFTP protocols.
Advanced FreeNAS features include full-disk encryption and a plug-in architecture for third-party software.

Regards,
Sieghard

I was referring to Microsoft backup schemes... I gave up on finding an accessible backup program years ago and this method works for me. It may not work for everyone but when everything you hold dear is on a backup and it just wont work for whatever reason all your docs,music and pictures are lost forever. only took a couple of these situations to find something foolproof... Keep in mind this was before large amounts of cheap cloud storage was available.
thats how I ended up with a complete copy of every thing on a FreeNas server with a RAID 5 array. A second complete copy on a network drive and yet another on a USB drive and... Yep one more on my computer in addition to the media drive that is in daily use. Losing several years of the family photos wont ever happen again.

I keep all my important stuff on a separate hard drive in my system and copy the whole drive once in a while. My really important data goes on the cloud. Dropbox, Google drive and One drive.
Here is how I do it.
On the second hard drive (Mine is Media)create the folders you want to move. I.E. Favorites, Documents, Downloads, Pictures and videos.
Now go to c:\users\your user name\
highlight the Favorites folder then alt +enter. Now ctrl + tab to the
location tab. Then tab twice to move folder. press it. Now shift tab once. press t for this PC press enter then press m for media (yours may be different) press enter then f for favorites. Now tab to select folder and press it. Tab to OK then press yes to move the folder to the new location.
Repeat for the rest of the folders. Now Windows will put everything in these folders from now on and the library links will go to these folders from now on.
If you use thunderbird copy the thunderbird folders from c:\users\your user name\app data\local and roaming.
Now if the main drive fails or you need to do a clean install. Just
copy the Thunderbird folders back to appdata local and roaming and all your info is there just move the folders to the Media drive again and it is like it was before the crash.
You will still need to install apps and setup your accounts.But with
Windows 10 that is fairly easy. Not like win 7. One of the few things
that is really better. :)
