Subject: Finding duplicate files with Jaws

My Itunes folder is full of duplicates. The drive is getting full.  I follow instructions in Itunes to find duplicates but don't know which to remove.


I'm also trying out an older program called DupeGuru.

It shows results in a table but I'm not finding it easy to mark items. Some icons aren't spoken with Jaws.


Anyone suggest abetter app for this job?

MS Outlook 2010 and latest Jaws 2018

Heya folks,

 

The world is a strange place when an update fixes one thing and causes other quirky things to happen in my MS Outlook 2010, if anybody else is running this outlook are you unable to hear how many emails and unread messages with the Jaws key and numpad 3 any more since this new 2018 update?

Also my top and bottom sound is gone even though its enabled.

 

The one thing it did fix though was the OCR scan thing but I always had Kurzwell doing that for me anyway so this Jaws key/numpad 3 not giving me email info now is truly annoying, so anyone else have this problem?

 

Cheers,

 

Jim

you don't need itunes to find the songs.
try looking in your account in my music/itunes /media folder.
set the view to details. then at least you will see the dates the files were created.

Re: accessible software for creating and restoring system image

Steve Sweeney
 

Hi,
I had the same problem. I tried just about every package out there and found nothing jaws will work with. When I asked tech support, they just said jaws didn't support any software to backup or image or clone hard drives???
I thought that was a basic function of all PC users but apparently jaws does not:-(

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the help, since I couldn't find anything that seemed completely accessible with jaws I have just used the windows built in function for creating a system image, as far as creating the image that part is completely accessible , the downside is that if I need to recover my PC using the system image I'll need some sighted assistance to help since that part wont' be supported by jaws or any other TTS software. So although not an ideal solution, at least I've got the system image stored for if I ever need it. Again thanks everyone for the reply's

Hi,



So had a bit of a system failure earlier today and had to reinstall windows, its sorted the issue but taken me hours reinstalling everything back on to my PC. I understand there is a way of creating a system image, so in event of a total system failure you can just restore the computer from the saved image. I'm sure I've seen this topic come up here before, so I'm sorry to ask again, but can anyone advise of accessible software to both create and restore a system image using jaws.

Re: Has anybody had experience with Teamviewer?

The best thing to use with the screenreader user being the support person and the non-screenreader user receiving said support is NVDA's Remote Assistance add-on. The non-screenreader user can start NVDA and get into the Remote Support add-on with proper instruction, then the support provider can terminate the remote copy of NVDA when the session is over.

You mean Narrator, the wonderful and vaunted Narrator, doesn't support its own manufacturer's software? How surprising!

Chrome now works in J2018

Stan Holdeman
 

Starting in late November Chrome stopped working with J2018. Jaws simply would not focus on any web content. All still worked fine in J18.

 

After repairs, re-installs, updates  and several sessions with VFO tech support, I finally gave up and used J18 only.

 

I am pleased to report that after installing most recent update, J2018 works fine in Chrome.

 

In the event any others had this problem, I urge you to install latest 2018 update.

Hi,
Drive Snap Shot is pretty good.
When I was using it a few years ago, it was a portable file, meaning it
could be used from a external drive or CD.
Have you heard of Win PE Disks?
There are Win PE Disks with NVDA included.
You would boot the PC with the Win PE disk.
You would have speech using NVDA.
Now run the drive snapp shot from your portable drive to restore the PC
from a previous saved image.
Maybe you can ask someone on this list, or google more info on win pe disk.

Maybe i should put my laptop on to fast startup, as the broadband signal is not bad, but not the gratest!  How do you do this?

Visually the desktop comes up almost right away after I put in my PIN, maybe 5 seconds, I guess the rest is Jaws loading up.

My computer is booting up much faster, but not because of the update.
I had Microsoft Accessibility go in and turn off all the unnecessary things that were loading at startup. Plus, I uninstalled Jaws 2018 and all the pieces left over from previous Jaws.
Then, after reinstalling Jaws 2018 on Monday, things run much better.
Nothing changed in that area with the update to Jaws.

This is a Windows 10 64 bit home edition Toshiba with the i7 processer and 8 GB of ram.


I was about to replace it, because from the time I turned it on until I could effectively use it was getting close to 10 minutes.
Now, it might be 2 or 3 minutes total from a cold boot and 1 minute when waking it up.

Hi Everyone!

Since yesterday's update, I find that my computer's quite slow booting up! It starts off saying on the windows log on Jaws for windows, then, seems totake a while before saying "Jaws home addition!!" has anyone else found this?

Re: accessible software for creating and restoring system image

Robert Cole
 

After booting the talking Win PE disk, Just use NVDA to navigate to your drive containing the portable drive snapshot program.
now in the drive snapshot program choose restore and follow the prompts.
Its been over 2 years since I have done this.

Robert, when the talking WinPE is used to boot the PC, what does one
exactly have to do to restore an image from the flash drive after
inserting it into a USB port? is it a simple matter of entering on the
image file or is it more involved?
the program for Drive Snapshot is still a stand alone (portable) program.

Hi,
Drive Snap Shot is pretty good.
When I was using it a few years ago, it was a portable file, meaning it
could be used from a external drive or CD.
Have you heard of Win PE Disks?
There are Win PE Disks with NVDA included.
You would boot the PC with the Win PE disk.
You would have speech using NVDA.
Now run the drive snapp shot from your portable drive to restore the PC
from a previous saved image.
Maybe you can ask someone on this list, or google more info on win pe disk.

so, what would you suggest as appropriate, Image For Windows or is there
some other solution you know of?

going by the directions you would not be able to restore the partitions
without dos. who has dos these days and you would not have any speech to
do this operation. this would be totally unacceptable

Hi,



So had a bit of a system failure earlier today and had to reinstall
windows,
its sorted the issue but taken me hours reinstalling everything back on to
my PC. I understand there is a way of creating a system image, so in event
of a total system failure you can just restore the computer from the saved
image. I'm sure I've seen this topic come up here before, so I'm sorry to
ask again, but can anyone advise of accessible software to both create and
restore a system image using jaws.



Thanks in advance for any help



Paul
