Re: a strange sound issue

Tim Ford
 

If this spacy sound happens on all recordings, then I suspect a sound effect is on. First, try playing one of the recordings in a different player, Windows Media Player is fine. If the spacy sound is gone, then it is a Wineamp setting. If the sound is present when using Media Player, then it is a sound effect.

The way I get to the sound effect setting is to press insert + F11. On that list I have the system tray icon for the sound settings. Pressing on that gives me a list that includes "open volume controls". Arrow down on that opening list and I get "special sound". Make sure that is off. If it is on, that is probably the reason.

Your settings may be different since I have a different computer, but that is the area of Windows you want to check.

Jed, it could be that the echoings were recorded when the track was
created due to some technical issue. try playing another voice track to
see if the echo is there. maybe downloading a talk podcast from
somewhere if you don't have another voice track.

Hey guys,

OK, having an interesting issue. So i have this new del laptop. jfw
is working great on it. However, i am plying some sound files using
winamp. On every file, there seems to be a slight echo on everything.
I was just listening to some dry voice tracks and there is an echo.
It's driving me nuts cause nothing appears obvious why there is a
revverb type sound, no plugins are active. Any ideas?

Re: Acronis True Image backup software

Richard Turner
 


I am actually looking for a program that will back up files/folders incrementally and not necessarily an entire image, though I would do one image I'm sure. I'm mostly concerned with my data. I have all the software backed up and would rather install it on a new machine, than simply restore from an image with any leftover issues from the previous drive.
But, I also want to be able to do this independently.
Right now, I manually copy key files/folders. Doable, but a true time-suck.

Re: Migrating to Firefox from Internet Explorer

Joe DiNero
 

I have been looking to migrate over for a little while now and now you can’t get navigational sounds. Agreed that it is taking a step backwards. I was getting ready to switch to Firefox for teaching purposes as IE is going to quickly get more and more inaccessible. Navigational sounds are not a deal breaker but they are nice to have.

No, there is no other add-ons for Firefox Quantum that plays these additional sounds, nor is this feature built in.  Besides Navigational Sounds, other add-ons like Webvisum and Plain Old Favorites also do not work with FirefoxQuantum, which, as far as I’m concerned, represents a major step backwards in terms of accessibility with JAWS.  And Firefox Quantum only works with JAWS 2018 and not with earlier versions.  The last version of Firefox that still works with Navigational Sounds and the other add-ons is Firefox 52 ESR.

Re: Windows 10 Question

 

You can disable the backstage as well, but F12 is a good option and I use it all the time.
Also, you may like it better if you put Excel and Word if that is what you mostly use on the task bar, make sure you know in what position it is in, e.g. third from the left and fourth from the left, then use Alt+Windows Key+3 and Alt+Windows Key+4 respectively to bring up the jump list which contains your recent documents.

I just switched to Office 2016 and feel your pain. The key thing to change is to go into Word and Excel and tell it not to load the start screen. In Word, this is found under File, Options, General. That will make the feel when you first open Word feel like Office 2010.

Also, when you go to "save" documents, use F12 instead of Control S. This will take you to a familiar save as dialog box rather than the Backstage view" that is very cluttered.

The other area I find confusing is trying to go to recently opened documents, which I do a lot at work. Rather than the menu based format from Office 2010, you have to tab to recent documents, then hit space to activate it then tab once more into a vertical list of recent documents.

Those are the big differences for me so far.

I also strongly suggest that most screen reader users use desktop
shortcuts as their primary interface for the programs they use most
and use the built-in Cortana search (even if her personal digital
assistant feature is
disabled) by hitting Windows Key and typing in the name of the program
or keywords for the setting or partial name of a document, etc.,
you're looking for and it's likely to show up at or near the top of

There are some slight changes regarding how desktop shortcuts are

Re: Windows 10 Question

Van Lant, Robin
 

I just switched to Office 2016 and feel your pain. The key thing to change is to go into Word and Excel and tell it not to load the start screen. In Word, this is found under File, Options, General. That will make the feel when you first open Word feel like Office 2010.

Also, when you go to "save" documents, use F12 instead of Control S. This will take you to a familiar save as dialog box rather than the Backstage view" that is very cluttered.

The other area I find confusing is trying to go to recently opened documents, which I do a lot at work. Rather than the menu based format from Office 2010, you have to tab to recent documents, then hit space to activate it then tab once more into a vertical list of recent documents.

Those are the big differences for me so far.

You can't, at least not in any meaningful and comprehensive way.   You
are far better off spending your time and energy to learn the Windows

earlier versions of Windows in many respects.

The above being said, Classic Shell ( http://classicshell.net/ ) is
still functioning under Windows 10.  Since it is no longer in active
development it is almost certain that it will eventually break, which
is why I do not recommend using it.  I also just think it's a bad idea
trying to make one operating system user interface "pretend" to be
that of another because if you ever have to use another Windows 10
computer, and you will, you will be lost.

I also strongly suggest that most screen reader users use desktop
shortcuts as their primary interface for the programs they use most
and use the built-in Cortana search (even if her personal digital
assistant feature is
disabled) by hitting Windows Key and typing in the name of the program
or keywords for the setting or partial name of a document, etc.,
you're looking for and it's likely to show up at or near the top of
the search results list.

There are some slight changes regarding how desktop shortcuts are
created for built-in universal apps.  It's not difficult.  See:

* Adding Desktop Shortcuts Under Windows 10 (

File Explorer is virtually identical to Windows Explorer of Windows 7
unless you've customized it.  If you wish to customize it under Windows 10, see:

* Changing Your Folder View in File Explorer Using a Screen Reader (

I would also strongly suggest you join the Windows 10 for Screen
Reader User's group.  Send an e-mail to win10+help@win10.groups.io to
get all the details.

You can check that in Properties.Select the file and press Alt plus ENTER, then review the screen with the JAWS cursor. Or, change your View mode from List to Details. Then select the file and press the JAWS Say Line key.

Re: Will the latest Firefox work with JFW 15 and Windows 7 Pro 64 bit?

Firefox Quantum only works with JAWS 2018 and not with earlier versions.  The latest version of Firefox that works with JAWS 15 is Firefox 52 ESR.

Hi!

 

I have read a lot about some troubles with the latest Firefox used with JFW.  For me, I use JFW 15 under Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.  How well does the latest Firefox work under these conditions?

 

Thanks,

Richard
