FTP Client Question.

Debbie April Yuille
 

Hi All

 

Which do people find to be the most accessible FTP Client with JAWS. I’ve used FileZilla and find it sort of accessible but I can’t get to the file transfer cue.

 

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I did not see any download button. I did not check for updates,
because I have the option set not to download them automatically.
This is why I was looking for the download updates button.

Re: Ripping a CD

Randy Barnett <randy@...>
 

Hi, The smaller the file the lower the sound quality. But Honestly I cant tell the difference after 192kbs. 0% is 128kbs and takes the least amount of disk space but a lot of people can hear the decrease in quality. 192kbs is still small but yeailds good sound. If your 17 years old you may hear a difference in quality between 192 and 256 or even 320kbs. But after 25 the ability to hear the minute details goes down especially if you are exposed to loud noise often i.e. concerts loud music in a car or noisy work environment.

If you switch to the jaws cursor when on the quality setting it will tell you how much disk space that setting will use on average.

Randy,

Okay, I've done that and changed to MP3 Thanks.

Now....please explain audio quality. You said "33% is 192kbs. 66% is 256Kbs. and 100% is 320kbs."  Is the average quality 50%?  Does the different levels use more space or memory or whatever you call it.  :(

I noticed my default was at 0%. That seemed odd to me but what do I know?!

I am a real novice here.

Thank you!!

Hi, glad you are figureing it out.
In the player press alt + t then O.
Now ctrl + tab to the rip tab.
Now tab to the format combo box and arrow down to mp3.
tab until you get to audio quality. This is a slider that justs gives percentage. 33% is 192kbs. 66% is 256Kbs. and 100% is 320kbs.
select one.
Now tab to OK and press enter.
You might want to convert the old .wma files as they are not very well supported.
This is done with a different program. It may be easier to just re-rip them after you change to mp3.

Hi,

Well, Randy, I kind of have it figured out. I get glimpses of light, then get lost in the fog.


The first CD I ripped was a non-commercial one which is why it came up as unknown artist. Then I tried a second one and that one did exactly as you all said- listed the title, artist and minutes.  But..... I was unable to copy and paste it to a thumb drive.


Also I have to work a bit to understand what format it is- I am guessing it is not MP3. Thus I have to find my way to how to change that.....

Brian: Yeah, like you said though it automaticly pops up with the artist info so I think even a beginner would just press next to accept the first option.
the WMP part of my instructions was for the mp3 tags so media players would have the correct artist and song info. Just changing the file names wont do this. but it has been so long since I messed with a actual CD things may have changed.
God! I remember when I first put over 200 CD's on my PC When I figured out I could do that. Back then artists didnt always come up correctly. Sometimes it would have 3 different artists for a CD and I would have to find one of the kids to tell me witch one it was! LOL

Well, I presumed complete beginner.   If the situation you describe is the case then my approach is always just to rip it first then do the cleanup on the files ripped afterward.   It's been a very long time since I last had to do this, but if memory serves, audio CDs that WMP cannot find media information for will end up under the "Various Artists" folder and get some sort of generic title like "Album 1".  I find it a grand PITA to try to do the track name creation in WMP so after I get to the folder for Various Artists I just rename the folder for the album I just ripped to something that makes sense to me, then I open that folder and go track by track and rename the individual files.  I find file explorer much easier to use for that task.

Others will, however, prefer to do it in WMP.   It's been so long since I've done that for any reason I can't even begin to describe the process.  I'd have to get a mix CD that someone made for me and try it again.

Hi Danney,

 

Jaws Key+A should work, I use Office 2016 currently with the Jaws 2018 Beta and that key combination works for me.

It’s been a few years since I used Office 2013, but I don’t recall it as being that different.

you can also press Shift+Tab, just make sure you are at the very beginning of the message and sometimes I do have to press it a couple of times to get to the list of attachments. Once you are there when it reads the first one and if you let it finish Jaws should say “1 of 1” or “1 of 3” or whatever the case may be and you can use left and right arrows to go from one attachment to the next if there is more than one.

Below is the text from speech history for an email I received which has one attachment, I first do a say line on that email in the Inbox, then open the email, let Jaws read the first few lines, then I press Jaws key+A. I indicate in quotation marks what I am pressing just before the text and I left in the vertical tabs which indicate the various bits of information::

I know a Windows 10 virtual machine running Jaws work just fine directly installed on a computers internal storage, but I’m looking in to getting a NAS device and I want to move all my virtual machines on to the NAS. Just wondering about the licensing and of course also the audio output.

Any feedback appreciated.

Re: Help with Excel! Please!

Shirley,
You got the answer to your question, but I wonder if you inadvertently changed a formatting think you may not have wanted to. Typically people merge sells across multiple columns to create a header, just as a title bar that spans across the columns. Many of my sighted colleagues will have that set of cells shaded or colored and the text will be centered across all of those cells so it offers a nice look that frames the columns of information. . Just wanted to point this out in case you are returning this work to sighted friends and they say you've changed the overall look of the file.

Hi everyone.

I am not knowledgeable in using excel. I taught myself how to work with spread sheets to keep my personal bank balance. Today, I have been asked to update our writers groups roster. It went smoothely until I reached row 22, column B. JAWS reads this as B22 through B24. When I tried to enter a different item in row 23, the same item shows up for row 22. I need to have different items--not the same. Obviously, you can't train me on excel with this list, but can someone just tell me how to change this one thing to fix it? I assume someone must have set it this way. How do I get out of it?

Thank you for any help. Or you can contact me off list. stracy5@tampabay.rr.com. Thank you.

I run into this with Jaws 18 from time to time as well, sometimes closing the message and reopening it helps. You might want to send that to FS as feedback, I will also do this, but just haven’t yet, but as I said, even in Jaws 18 sometimes I get messages with tables or headings and the “t” and “h” keys just don’t do what they are supposed to. If I arrow to the table then table navigation works.

When I am running the beta and receive an html message, the single key navigation doesn’t work. 

If I unload the beta and load the release of Jaws 18, they work fine.

Is there a setting I’m missing?

 

Thanks,

Richard

 

 


Re: Jaws on a Synology virtual machine

 

Hi Nickus,

Have you already bought a Synology NAS? If so, I'd love to know which one and your feedback, feel free to write to me privately at sieghard@live.ca. I am looking at them and want to buy one soon. You might want to read Jonathan Mosen's information at www.Mosen.org and, if you don't find the information you are looking for, contact him via his website since I know he has one and has written about the accessibility of the Synology Diskstation user interface.

Regards,
Sieghard

Hi all
Does anyone maybe have experience with running jaws on a Windows virtual machine which is on a NAS device, something like a Synology NAS?

I know a Windows 10 virtual machine running Jaws work just fine directly installed on a computers internal storage, but I’m looking in to getting a NAS device and I want to move all my virtual machines on to the NAS. Just wondering about the licensing and of course also the audio output.

Any feedback appreciated.

Re: Opening Attachments in Outlook 13

 

Hi Danney,

 

Jaws Key+A should work, I use Office 2016 currently with the Jaws 2018 Beta and that key combination works for me.

It’s been a few years since I used Office 2013, but I don’t recall it as being that different.

you can also press Shift+Tab, just make sure you are at the very beginning of the message and sometimes I do have to press it a couple of times to get to the list of attachments. Once you are there when it reads the first one and if you let it finish Jaws should say “1 of 1” or “1 of 3” or whatever the case may be and you can use left and right arrows to go from one attachment to the next if there is more than one.

Below is the text from speech history for an email I received which has one attachment, I first do a say line on that email in the Inbox, then open the email, let Jaws read the first few lines, then I press Jaws key+A. I indicate in quotation marks what I am pressing just before the text and I left in the vertical tabs which indicate the various bits of information::

Happy Tuesday, Using JAWS 18, Windows 7.  After opening a message, I shift tab to attachments and was thinking JAWS would tell me how many attachments I have, but it doesn’t.  Is this  controlled by a verbosity setting?  Also, thought JAWS key and letter A would tell me about  attachments, but it doesn’t, just tells me about links in the email.

Can you all tell me best way to manage attachments, i.e. opening and determining how many there are?

Thanks

Re: Ripping a CD

 

As a side note, that use of percentages for the bit rate is a side effect of JAWS because the control used to set the bit rate is a slider.  I do not know what the "under the hood" issues are with making a slider actually announce what gets displayed as you slide it, rather than always using percentages, but JAWS has been using the percentage convention for a very long time now for a lot of things that are not percentages.   In this particular case with bit rate:

0% is 128 Kb per second

33% is 192

66% is 256

and 100% is 320

As far as I'm concerned, if it were at all possible, JAWS or any screen reader should announce the value "being slid" not how far along the slider range you are unless that's actually what's pertinent.
