OK, so another error pops up and it keeps telling me it can't find the
path specified. I'm excepting the default of where it wants to
install the program.
It wans to go in program files (x86) and then a directory off that.
This makes absolutely no sense. The program i am trying to install is
mp3 direct cut. Any ideas what i should do here?

Richard,

          Thanks much.  I realize that there are a lot of "for profit" scripters out there (for some value of "a lot of") and I wasn't really expecting them, or anyone who's purchased from them, to be offering their wares for free.

           But there are scads of scripts that have been created not for sale, and that those who created them would be willing to offer to others for use, but until your post I had not even found one location doing such.

           There's no point in reinventing the wheel as far as repositories go, either.  It's not clear to me whether this one is being actively maintained at this point, but I'll do some digging to find out.

I do not think anyone has put together a single repository. Too many scripters, and too many that sell their scripts directly. I think this one has free scripts, but I thought their was another place where I had gotten the Goldwave scripts, but I cannot find that one now.

Tom <tomcat509@...>
 

The problem only started with my gmail pop account after moving to a new system and a freshly installed copy of Outlook 2013.  Prior to that the pop account worked fine and met my needs. 

 

After not being able to set up the pop accounts in  Outlook I rang Microsoft hotline and the tech there changed it to a imap account.  Since then I have been flooded with duplicate mail.

 

Maybe it would be worth me setting up another pop account in gmail and  subscribe to lists under the new account.

 Hi I have not been following this conversation that much but I will say that if you were only using a device or to pop three is a good way to go. This allows you to have messages on your computer but you don’t have to delete them from the server unless you choose to in the set up. Your problem may be in the set up of your account if there is a way you can do it you may want to uninstall your accounts and then reinstall them, just make sure you have all of your email backed up or at least the important ones.

Tom,

         Gmail offers POP access to this very day.  Your problem is not rooted in IMAP access, and going POP will either keep the same problems or introduce others.

          You need to have someone who understands the e-mail client you're using take a careful look at your account setup, what rules you're using, and several other factors.

          Or you can persist in believing that the e-mail access method is what's causing your problem - your call.

The interface problem is not language-specific. Usually these things are done with external libraries that are accessible by any, or most, programming language(s). Unfortunately, the reprogramming required to get you what you want is not a small task, which is why it's very difficult to get any of these small outfits to actually do it. Everybody claims poverty--small staff, small budget, looking to innovate for the main customer base, you know the shpiel. But good on ya for continuing to work with these people and guide them toward better access for screenreader users.

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I've been working with Atmosphere Deluxe (http://www.vectormediasoftware.com/atmdeluxehome.htm), and I want to help Vectormedia Software redesign their interface so it works with JAWS. currently, the program is in Visual Basic, which has a hard time being recognized by JAWS, especially since some of the controls are spoken the exact same way (JAWS says "Graphic 0"), despite the fact that each one is different. For example, some of the controls are buttons, and some are sliders, and some are checkboxes. I can't seem to customize them with Frame Viewer, as some of these controls, at least to JAWS, look exactly identical. So now that brings up my question, how can I help Vectormedia Software to trade Visual Basic for a programming language that is universally understood by most screenreaders, but especially JAWS? I was thinking they could redesign the interface to look like the main browser of the Windows operating system. Or even something that can be recognized by all operating systems. Kind of like what Applied Acoustics of Canada (http://www.applied-acoustics.com) does with their physical models of guitars. From what I understand, Strum Acoustic and Strum Electric, made by Applied Acoustics, are designed with C++. If you download Atmosphere Deluxe from http://www.vectormediasoftware.com/atmdeluxedown.htm, you'll be able to understand what I mean when I say the interface of Atmosphere Deluxe is only partially recognized by JAWS. Back in an Email dated May 1, 2010 at 11:23 AM, one of the reps at Vectormedia Software said they could possibly redesign their interface from scratch, but I haven't heard anything from them regarding that or any other questions I have since August 1, 2012 at 3:47 AM. I sure hope the company's still around, because they haven't updated their website since July 22, 2012.

         Are you, by any chance, having Outlook force your incoming e-mail messages to plain text?  Since a very great many e-mail messages are in HTML format when they get forced to plain text a lot of what was contained in them, particularly graphics, gets mangled.  You also lose information that's involved with those graphics.

         I always strongly discourage my clients from forcing plain text because of the potential for lost content that's hard to describe, but is there if you leave the message "unmolested" from its format of composition.

         If you're not forcing plain text if an example of one of these messages can be forwarded to me I might be able to figure out what's going on just by examining what comes in.

Hi.
I used Becky with W.E. and have pretty much switched to jAWS. Becky works fine for me with JAWs. if I want to go to a link in an email, I use the JAWS mouse key to click, then switch back to the curser to navigate.

Hi Everyone

I am a reluctant migrant to JAWS as, although I used it when I was at
work, I prefer Window-Eyes. I am using Windows 7.

I use Becky! as my e-mail client. Are there any JAWS scripts for Becky!?

Also, what other e-mail programs do people think work well with JAWS?
