Mike B.,

Thanks for this. I’ll give it a shot.

I have downloaded it but I haven’t installed it yet.

Have you used it? Do you know if you then can reach the results? Like the text messages?

The link shows the situation I am talking about but the next page is sort of vegg on the resultant files.

And it is a little scarry when all it says is transfer not coppy? Makes me wonder What will happen? Will they all be lost somewhere on my computer and no longer in the phone at all until they are transferred back…

But I thank you for finding it.

Thanks again

Shannon

Hi all,

I didn’t get a response about this and I wondered if it was because the subject line was not very good.

I am looking for a program that I can use with either jaws 18 or jaws 2018 to transfer text messages from my iPhone to my computer.

ITunes (which is anything but useful) will make a backup but they are encrypted and you can’t get to them.

I want to be able to make a back up that I can read on the computer. I need to save a lot of them they are kind of important to me.

Anyone know of a program that works to do this?

Thanks Shannon

Hello all,

I have a lot of messages on my iphone. I want to download them to my computer. I did a goog le search for aprogram that will let me  do this and I found one that says it will do this and I will still be able to read them.

It is called IExplorer.

Has anyone used this with jaws 18 or jaws2018? If not is there a program that will work that you all know of?

Thanks

My organization uses Adobe Connect to conduct webinars. As a

for your audio, video, Etc. to the presenter, Q&A, and chat pods. Does
anyone know a hot key to toggle on and off video from anywhere in
Adobe Connect? Or And what might be a way to jump easily from the pods
to the controls?
Adobe Connect does have some hot keys available on their site, but I

From Ease of Access settings. Best way to find those options is to press the start menu and type ease of access. Press enter and the options for all of those features will appear. You are looking for Magnifier.

moderated Re: tips on using share point, teams, and groups

Van Lant, Robin
 

I work with SharePoint 2013 at my company as both a visitor to pages and as an editor and contributor.  We are still on Windows 7 and Office 2010.  I’m also still waiting for JAWS to be installed on my computer, so am still using Window-Eyes and NVDA.  Having said all those caveats, I’m willing to share what I can until anyone tells me SharePoint with Office 365 is totally different from what I have experience with.

 

I find that reading SharePoint pages is not that bad, although they can be cluttered.  In many ways they appear like a regularly web page and all that navigation works, but many SharePoint sides use what are called document libraries to house collections of files in a table layout on the screen.  I often use the screen reader function that pulls up a list of links, and that will also pull up information listed in that document library. 

 

At least with Window-Eyes, editing SharePoint is a nightmare.  My SharePoint contact in our company says SharePoint works best in Internet Explorer, which is my preferred browser at work, and yet I often get crashes when trying to edit in SharePoint using Window Eyes.  Most challenging is that when I’m in a  editing window, Window-Eyes voices the text on the line at least 2 lines below wherever my cursor is.  I think NVDA is better with this, but I’d have to check.  I’m not very good with NVDA, so I’ve only used it in SharePoint in  a pinch.  I’m curious as to how JAWS will do with editing in SharePoint as a test after I have one of those crashes with Window-Eyes.

 

If your primary purpose for accessing SharePoint is to access files in document libraries, there is a way to link document libraries to Outlook so that they appear in your left navigation pane in Outlook.  I’d have to play with this, but I think the intention is for both reading documents and also for editing and saving documents back to SharePoint and could put you back into a more familiar and easily navigated format.  Once you open a SharePoint document, a button appears on the ribbon of whatever program you are using that allows you to check-out the file to edit.  Just saving it then places your updated version back onto SharePoint. 

 

Happy to answer whatever else I can if you think my experience is relevant.

Native Windows Notepad can definitely not open multiple documents simultaneously. A separate instance of Notepad is required to open each one. On the other hand, Notepad++ can open as many simultaneous document, one per window,as available memory can handle, all managed by the same instance of Notepad++. In other words, Notepadd++ is more efficient, only needs to run once, and access to all open documents is controlled from within the program. No task-switching is required, which also makes it more efficient to navigate among open windows without having to Alt-TAB past running programs you don't need to trip over on your way through your work.

I do not use extremely large text files, but the largest text file that I have ever heard of that has been opened by notepad is 0.5 GB. I do not know anything about the relation of computer hardware.
Now, I have never tested the 0.5 GB myself, just read about it a few years ago.

I also read somewhere about notepad having a limit on total lines in the file. Do not remember what that number was, just know that it was over a million.

Hope this helps,

I also noted that the larger the file is, the longer it takes Notepad
to open it, and the length of time depends on other technical specs of

Hi Tom,

 

Here's a tip on installing Jaws on a new computer, especially since it's suggested to have more than one version of Jaws installed.  If you're going to install multiple versions of Jaws, start by installing the earlier versions first.  i.e, install Jaws 17, then install Jaws 18, & then install Jaws 2018, but do not authorize until you install the latest version, Jaws 2018.  By waiting to authorize until the latest version, authorizing this version will authorize the earlier versions at the same time.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

If you install Jaws on a new system you do have to activate it, you can do this by inserting your authorization disk or by manually typing in your authorization key (I have mine saved where I can quickly find it, then I simply copy and paste into the appropriate field). As many computers don’t have DVD drives any more entering it manually might be your only option, I think it’s a 20-digit code.

Once Jaws is installed and authorized you can definitely restore your Settings from a backup.

Also, what do I need to do to setup Jaws on the new system as far as registration etc goes?   

 

Is there anything else needed to be done on the Jaws front to have a smooth change from one computer to another? A copy of the latest Jaws has been already saved to an external drive.

Subject: Jaws 2018 settings backup

 

                Hi,

 

Using latest Jaws 2018 and W10 Home 64 bit.

 

I am thinking seriously of replacing my 7 year old desktop with a new system and was wondering how the Jaws 2018 settings could be backed up for later installation.  What do I need to do to achieve this?

 

Also, what do I need to do to setup Jaws on the new system as far as registration etc goes?   

 

Is there anything else needed to be done on the Jaws front to have a smooth change from one computer to another? A copy of the latest Jaws has been already saved to an external drive.

 

Thanks

Tom

I do not use extremely large text files, but the largest text file that I have ever heard of that has been opened by notepad is 0.5 GB. I do not know anything about the relation of computer hardware.
Now, I have never tested the 0.5 GB myself, just read about it a few years ago.

I also read somewhere about notepad having a limit on total lines in the file. Do not remember what that number was, just know that it was over a million.

Hope this helps,

Chris

Chris, it's not a big deal, but do you know if Notepad has a maximum
limit to how big of a text file can be opened? results from researching
says it is basically limited by the computer’s hardware configuration
(how much memory, hard drive capacity, etc.). the largest I found was
mentioned to be 512 MB but was theoretically estimated to be 16 TB.
I also noted that the larger the file is, the longer it takes Notepad to
open it, and the length of time depends on other technical specs of the
computer used.

Hi:

Thanks for responding.

Some times I have to have several files open at a time.

I will see if Notepad can do that, I know that notepad++ will do that.

Our instructor in our class says we should use notepad++

That's is why I am trying to use it.

Thank you

Hi:



Has anybody worked with Notepad++?



I just started using notepad++



I noticed Jaws does not when you are trying to highlite text.



If some one could point me in the direction for some wordpad help.



The other question I have is there a better text editor that would work
better with Jaws.



My tutor and I are coding web pages.



Any help would be appreciated.

moderated Magnifier with Win 10

Elaine Young <hidden_spring@...>
 

Thanks for all who have responded to this question. I will try it out with my sister. I use Jaws and have no vision, but my sister from out of state is coming for a few days and she is a high partial  and has never learned to use any type of screen reader- she just squints and uses  magnifying glasses. I am hoping while she is here we can do some things on the computer and by using the magnifier with Win 10, we should be good to go.

Again, thanks to all the help from this list!

moderated OneDrive ransomware protection

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Hi,

 

When I just booted up my computer I got an alert that OneDrive wants me to add protection so I can easily restore my files. At first I was wondering what that was all about because of course the reason why I use OneDrive is that I have a cloud backup and can sync my files between multiple devices. I Googled this and found the following article on The Verge:

Microsoft is adding ransomware protection to its OneDrive cloud storage so you can restore files easily

 

I then clicked on the alert and it took me to a Windows where I was on a “Protect” button which I then activated. This sounds like a nice feature and an upgrade which make OneDrive even better.

 

I though I post this to the Windows 10, Jaws and Viphone list because even though this does not strictly relate to iOS most of us who use OneDrive of course also use the iOS app or access it through the new Files app.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Hi all,

I know Windows 10 has Narrator to add speech , but is there magnification available in Windows 10 as well? And if so, how do I turn it on and off?


Thanks,

Yes, Magnifier in Windows is quite good and has a similar range of options as do the pay magnifiers. If you use the start menu and type in Magnifier you can start it from there. It is also in the list of options in Ease of Access. If it works for you, you can have it as a startup option. It has a range of key commands that I will find and post in another message. You can turn it off by giving it focus and using Alt- F 4.

Have fun

Tom,

  Wow,  I am in PA and here we have a department with VR just for assisting blind and visually impared with work, training and the like.  Does your state have such a department?  Most do.  Also, if your former employer did not attempt to make reasonable accomadations  for your work, such as purchasing ZT for your job, then they have violated the federal “reasonable accommodation act” under ADA.  Many employers are either not aware of the law or hope you are not. 

I had partial sight until 2014 and then went totally blind and made the jump to JAWS.  There was and is a learning curve but there are many helps within the program and I have basically trained myself.  It gets easier with practice.  Give yourself time to work with Fusion.

 

Dan

  If I can be of more help you can private message me

hi everyone,

 

I have a Fusion 11 home license that i want to upgrade to fusion 2018,  but i don’t have the $200 all at once,  because I lost my job in february.

 

i lost my job with DXC technologies because the place i worked for took zoomtext off my computer.  I had a corporate workstation & company wouldmt pay the bill for a corporate license.   how much does the corporate license cost?   I don’t even know they wouldn’t tell me for sure?  

 

anyway,  this just goes to prove fusion is the perfect priduct for me because i have a smidgen of sight left but not enough to read print anymore.  i mean i can at very high magnification levels but i really need speech to distingquish beteeen 8’s & 6’s & some other letters & numbers. I’ve been trying to make the transition from zoomtext to jaws but jaws is still very confusing to me.   do you guys have any suggestions how to make the transition easier?  even with a fusion 11 home license i know zoomtext real well but Jaws I don’t really get at all & I don’t know where to go for help especially now that I’m unemployed and VR won’t help me.

 

VR has this new stupid rule that blindness no longer enough disabled to be a VR client no more so no one will help me.  

 

thanks, 

 

Tom Coburn


Yes,  Will wait to hear from you.

Hi,

I don't have sight to confirm if this is correct, but I'm pretty sure in windows 10 if you just press and hold the windows key and then press either the plus or minus symbols on the number keypad that should increase and decrease the magnification , its meant to be pretty good from what I've heard and I don't believe you need to turn on anything for that to work, just use those key combinations, hope this helps
