Re: easeus free backup software

 

Richard Turner already provided a direct click-through link that absolutely does initiate the download of EaseUS To Do Backup Free v11:

                     http://download.easeus.com/free/tb_free.exe

the following also works, and I just went through all of the "hoop jumping" to get to the final download link:  http://down.easeus.com/product/tb 

The moment you activate either one you are presented with a save dialog for the tb_free.exe installer.

Re: Using JAWS with Simian

I don't know this software, but have you tried routing jaws to pc and
pushing the left mouse button (/ key on the numpad)?

Also, if this is your job, maybe use Aira.

the keyboard. If I need to replace a song or make some other change to the on-air log, the keyboard won't do it. The other DJs use the mouse to make changes. The left mouse button on the keyboard does nothing. When I arrow down, the

Re: easeus free backup software

 

I have asked on the NVDA group whether anyone there is actually using EaseUS To Do Backup.  If anyone here is actually using it they'd be the subject matter experts and should please chime in.

There are, at least for me, accessibility issues with activating the main controls, which includes setting up a backup (but I thought I had recalled it asking you to do this as part of the initial setup, too, so I'd hoped it would be avoided for folks doing a one-shot deal for backing up).  Unless a backup plan is set up the keys that allow you to run it, which are entirely accessible, will not exist.

EaseUS recently went to a more UWP interface, and knowing that most folks have found ways to get to controls on UWP programs when I sometimes have not been able to on my initial try makes me suspect there's probably, not certainly, but probably, a way to do so in EaseUS.

Most backup and restore programs are far more complex as far as what they can do, and the complexity carries over to the controls, than most typical users ever need.  The main reason I like EaseUS is that it's interface is simple by comparison to most (and had been pretty accessible until the UWP-style transition).   The sad fact is that for virtually all of them if you need to do a full system image recovery due to hard drive (or SSD) corruption or failure you will need sighted help anyway.  Most rely on on  Windows PE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) to do a system image restore if you've had some sort of catastrophic drive failure on your main drive, and Windows PE does not support screen readers or speech output.

Re: PDF vs. Google docs

David Moore
 

Hi Naomi! Google Docs are very accessible with JAWS and NVDA screen readers. On Google Drive, you can upload a PDF that is on your computer

                                                                        As a Google Doc, and Google docs take up no space toward your 15 free Gigs of Google Drive storage.

Once you upload the PDF to the Google Drive web site as a Google doc, just press enter on the Google doc and read it.

This is an awesome way to have PDF’s converted into a very accessible document that you can read on the Google Docs web page.

Re: IE vs. "Chrome"

 

As for opening web pages, I do this in various ways, here are the most common:

 

1. I open Google Chrome with my Windows Key+1 shortcut, then press F6 which takes me to the addressbar and I type in the exact website address if I know it.

2. If I don’t know the exact address I do a Google search, find the result I want using heading quick nav keys and press enter on the one that is the correct one.

3. I may also have shortcuts saved on my desktop which take me to commonly used websites

4. I use the Roboform password manager and many websites which require login I access directly from Roboform by pressing Jaws Key+F11 to bring u pthe system tray items, I press “R” for Roboform, go to the Logins menu item and find the website I want by first letter navigation. If I am logged into Roboform with my Master password the website opens, user name and password are filled in for me and the form is submitted.

Sieghard

Is there a way to export IE favorites into either Firefox or Google Chrome?

The simple, snarky version of the answer is, "Yes."

The slightly more complex, but incomplete one, is exactly how you will do it depends on whether you already have Firefox or Chrome installed or not.  Both Firefox and Chrome (and virtually any alternative web browser I've dealt with during the last 5 years, at least) will ask as part of their install process if you wish to import favorites from browsers it detects are already installed on your system.  You can choose to import them and they will automagically be in the bookmarks for that newly installed browser.

If you installed Firefox or Chrome as your backup browser a long while ago, but didn't bother to import then, you can use the export function from the bookmarks/favorites manager of the other browser and the import function under Firefox, Chrome, or other alternate browser and there they'll be [including your folder structure, if you've used one].

Re: Is there a way to encourage companies to make accessibility a prioity if you have a large base of users?

 

Built-in and out of the box accessibility is great and it is exactly what Apple has done with Voiceover and what Microsoft is doing with Narrator right now. However, not everybody requires the same level of accessibility and having third-party solutions like Jaws which do cost money because there is actually an organisation behind it which has to pay wages,, rent or buy a building and all that. Mich, I doubt Jaws is drowning in money and you can’t always expect perfection to be included. Does it make sense, for example, to built every house according to the best specs out there for wheelchair users just because maybe at some point somebody in a wheelchair might want to live there? There are other examples where accessibility is just not feasible and games is one such example. How many games are entirely visual, accessibility is just not possible and I for one don’t expect it. The fact is we are blind and lack the sense of sight and not level of accessibility will give us sight and at times sight is what is required. Should every movie or TV series have audio descriptions? Absolutely. Should popular devices, software applications and services be accessible? Absolutely. But some things just can’t be made accessible and there is nothing wrong with that.

This includes for games, or any other thing that companies want to make accessible it should be thought of at the start not when the product is all ready out in the market and then have to re tune it with accessibillidey in mind and charge through the nose for it.

If there is a magic to it, no one has figured it  out in thirty-plus years. It's hit and miss, depending on the motivation of the developer or company. Most plead poverty--not enough staff to dedicate a single person to oversee or implement accessibility. But some, like guys like Ross Levi from Station Playlist, or the Weather Watcher guy, or the Tapin Radio guy, just to name a few prominent ones, are not only amenable to talking about accessibility with their users, but put their money where their mouth is and really do it.

If an organization of the blind, like the American Council, or the National Federation, want to fight for something, often things change for the better.  Case in point was the ACB getting involved   with Major League Baseball inaccessibility.  The problem is getting them motivated.

My main question is why hasn't one or both of these groups fought for accessibility of virus protection products?

That is the one and only way that accessibility becomes, well, more accessible.  Using the correct kind of PR spin doesn't hurt, either.  There are no "big bucks" to be made via accessibility but the polishing of one's reputation that comes from making it a priority is a potential goldmine.  I don't think that either Microsoft or Apple, two of the biggest companies making accessibility a base expectation, are doing so because it improves their bottom line in the conventional sense, yet they're definitely getting something out of it and that's worth noting and encouraging.

Creating corporate cultures where accessibility is an expectation, rather than an afterthought if it's thought of at all, is the way forward.  At the moment, it seems the tide is shifting in that direction, at least for companies where that's practical (and, yes, it's much more difficult for tiny companies with limited resources than it is for companies with multi-billion [or trillion] valuations).  But what the "big ones" do does rub off.

windows narrator , windows update and jaws 2018 and text to speech voice issues

Marvin Hunkin <neilmarvin@...>
 

Hi., uninstalled this update, and keep getting this damn error. And now did uinstall, and did try trouble shooting, did try resetting the windows update components. And also set Microsoft hazel as my default voice, if I turn on narrator, jaws got stuck, and now won’t let me change the voices using jaws in the combo box, do I need to do a jaws reapir and also do a report for Microsoft feedback. And when I login used to hear narrator, now just hear the clicks. Don’t want to do a windows reset, not really, taking me weeks to then load all my programming projects from my previous course and then all apps. A bit extreme . any ideas. Now used to have the kathren English Australian voice, now just hear the windows narrator lcikcs, and got my high definition audio, should I set the sound card to windows. Please help me out. Frustrating. And also did a script to reset the windows background, windows update, then, what else to try. This is annoying. Please give me some ideas. Annoying. And gets stuck at the Microsoft George, and it won’t move down the list, and when I go to text to speech in control panel, only Microsoft David and zera. None of the other voices, and did install Microsoft hazel and added the English uk voice and keyboard. Any ideas. Frustrating. Marvin.

Ps: pasting the windows update error. Should I do a feedback hub and have to sign in, to then report, and which category to report. Very annoying. Not on the insiders program, as this is my main Toshiba laptop. Marvin.

And as I said before, that's not, by a long shot, the way most people who need a full system recovery are able to initiate it.

You're doing a "convenience" restore, and there's nothing wrong with that.  It is not the same thing, at all, as using the same recovery tools (e.g., Macrium, AOMEI, EaseUS) when you are doing so because you've had a HDD failure, where a new one is needed, or where the HDD gets some sort of horrible infection/corruption.  Most recoveries for individuals who are not accustomed to playing with a computer in an uncharacteristically sophisticated way are disaster recoveries.

Those all get started by booting from some alternate bootable media (usually a USB jump drive or optical media) into a bare bones OS, without screen reader support of any sort, and initiating the recovery from the backup drive to the corrupted drive or the replacement drive, if there was a failure in the original boot disc's electronics or platters.

As I said before, this only works like that when I initiate the
restore from windows -- I wanted to restore the system disk to an
earlier time from one of the images on my backup drive and it did work
the way I said.

So you expect me to believe that all you did was create a rescue CD using Reflect, then popped it into your DVD drive, and boom, just like that without any sighted help or intervention of any kind, your computer was restored to normal
from the backup image stored on your external hard drive? No way. There is always a user interface on a CD, unless it is a music CD, which will begin playing when you insert it into the DVD drive. But I have never heard of a rescue CD
automatically restoring a backup image without some kind of user intervention.

the Macrium rescue disk boots into Linix.

No, it most certainly does not, at least not in any default installation for Windows I've ever seen or recovery I've ever done. In fact, as part of setting up Macrium for the first time, you have to download Windows PE if you don't
already have it in order to make the recovery disc.

I’ve got an HP Envy 360 two in one and cant’ remember the last time I actually used the touch screen aspect of the laptop to be honest if at all.

I will be surprised if the i7 processor with 16 gb of ram is slow.

I occasionally teach on several of those Dell models. The only issues I have is that they are a little slow which has nothing to do with JAWS. They have slower processors. I love the   touch screen.

I bought an Asus Zenbook 15 inch laptop, no 2-in-1 or 3-in-1, just a good laptop although it does have a 4K touch screen. Apart from that it has a keyboard with NumPad and it came with 16Gb of RAM, a 512Gb SSD and an I7 CPU. Also 4 USB ports and 1 USB-C port and HDMI, no ethernet port, though, of course WiFi 802.11AC and bluetooth 4 or 4.1. This is, however, a premium laptop, not an under $1,000 model.

Sieghard

Just purchased a HP Envy 13z and it works very well.  Only issue is no separate number pad.  Has the 360 hinge and AMD processor and graphics.

I'm looking into a new computer and what I want only comes in a 2 in 1, probably because of the 512 GB SSD drive and i7 chip, etc.

 

Thanks,
