Re: rotating the screen?

ratshtron
 

you should be able to place the screen upright with ctrl+alt+uparrow.
I believe.

Re: rotating the screen?

I think it is ctrl+alt+up or is it down?

One of them anyway 😃

Or you could use the desktop context menu to get you upright again 😃

Re: all Skypes work together??

Morey Worthington
 

Hi David. I very much appreciate  the way you answer questions, all your tutorials, and all the work you put in doing all of it.
Now for another Skype for Dummies regarding UWP and 8.2. I only have a desktop computer using Windows 1803, Jaws 2018 and probably will never use a IPhone.
The closest I come to it is a flip phone for emergencies.
So in my case, what  is the real difference between the 2 systems, meaning UWP and 8.2, remembering this is for dummies. I am currently using 7.4, which understood is going away, and have no issues at all.
So, what can I expect  other than the keystroke differences, , meaning what can I do in UWP and not in 8.2, example, any more voice mails???
If you could throw inn a couple examples, it sure would clarify things for me, and I hope others.
Thanks very much.

problem solved about not hearing system sounds after updating to latest version of windows 10.

David Ingram
 

Hi list members, after updating to the latest version of windows 10 version 1803 using jaws version 16 I was unable to hear system sounds. but after the repair of jaws 16, then the uninstallation of jaws 16 then reinstalling jaws16 everything is fine again.


Configuring Freeswitch and Google Voice

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

So a follow up to a query I made on list a few weeks ago. Someone recommended as an accessible VOIP client Freeswitch. https://freeswitch.com/

I downloaded and installed it and it seems pretty basic, accessible  and easy to use which is great. My question is does anyone know how to configure Google Voice with it? Doing a quick search, I come up with: https://freeswitch.org/confluence/display/FREESWITCH/Google+Voice+API

Yeah, so a lot of that stuff laid out in that URL are things I’m not familiar with and seeing as how it’s going on two years old, I don’t know if anything’s changed for the better or worse.

Again, the FS client itself seems pretty nice  and accessible. It’s just getting the number properply configured for incoming and outgoing calls now I guess.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Cristóbal

It just opens back doors that allow other viruses to enter your computer. It also said that it cripples some functions in Windows. You should be good for a day or two, but I wouldn’t let it hang around very long.

Hi, Kevin. This is a tricky infection to eradicate. My suggestion is to call the Microsoft Answer desk.

 

800-936-5900

 

They have a lot of tools, and can look on their knowledge base to see the best way to remove the ABSunset virus. The problem you’re going to have is that you may need to start your computer in safe mode. During this time in safe mode, the Microsoft tech will not be able to connect with, and control your computer.

Hi list members, the problem was that after the update to the latest version of windows 10 that my jaws version 16 was working but I had no system sounds. After the repair of jaws 16 was done, I had other problems. What I did was to uninstall jaws 16 then reinstall jaws16. Now I have my jaws 16 and system sounds like I had before the windows 10 update.

I had to ask one of my colleagues to create buttons on a spreadsheet to

Re: shut down sound for windows 10

 

Fair or not doesn't come into play here, I lost my sight along with 2 fingers on each hand in an accident when I was 16 and it was entirely my own stupid fault. Is it fair I can't jump into my truck and drive out into the mountains to go hunting or hiking? Is it fair that I can't see a cute girl smiling at me from across the street? OK, so that last one wouldn't happen anyways if it weren't for my beautiful seeing-eye dog *smile*.
Anyhow, what I am saying here is that we are blind (or visually impaired) and that is what we are. Is it fair that some people can't just get up from the couch to walk to the toilet because they need a wheelchair or that others like one of the Paul's on here are not only blind but also profoundly deaf? Maybe it's not fair, but it just is and so we make the best of it and are happy or we don't and are miserable.

Take care,
Sieghard

Re: all Skypes work together??

David Moore
 

I just wanted to let you know, that if you use the three new Skype platforms, your messages will sync to all three Skype platforms, and between all of your devices.

For example, I can chat on the Windows 10 Skype app,

And then get on my other computer, bring up Skype 8.25,

And all of my messages are all there.

There is even Skype for Web, where the layout is just like Skype 8.25, but you can use it in your browser, and not have it installed on your computer.

You can get on two or three devices, and all you do on Skype is synced on all of those devices.

That is a huge reason not to use Skype 7 anymore.

You are stuck to using one device, and not a phone at all.

Have a great one!
