Re: winamp or other programs I hope I can explain this right

Mario
 

I think it is a compatibility issue of winamp running under windows 10
because Winamp does not gain focus when pressing enter on an audio file
if switching to use NVDA or Narrator.

It used to be possible for WinAmp to come to the foreground in past versions
of Windows. I don't know if it's an incompatibility between WinAmp and
current versions of Windows, or if it's a problem with WinAmp and JAWS
versions, but the current situation is this, you must use ALT plus SHIFT
plus TAB to bring WinAmp into the foreground. It doesn't come to the
foreground by itself, the way it used to.

Re: chrome switch from I.E.

David Pearson
 

Hello JD:

Guess I was confused about who sent which information, so thanks to you as well.

Think that I'll try the key press sequence of: alt+ Cntrl+ "H"for chrome as this sequence avoids having
to use my spacebar.

Now I just need instructions on how to ensure that when I bring up chrome via the shortcut it will place me in "auto forms mode" allowing input of text.

Thanks again,



David S. Pearson to

Good Morning,

To create a keyboard shortcut do the following

1 - Go to the desktop and bring focus to the Chrome icon
2 - Hit your application key or shift F10 and arrow up to properties
and hit enter
3 - Tab to the shortcut key and choose the shortcut you want to
use.
4 - If you want to change what type of window opens ie normal,
maximized or minimized you would tab once more to make the appropriate
change
5 - Shift tab to Apply and hit enter
6 - Shift tab to ok and you should be good to go
Hope this helps.

If you have a Chrome shortcut on your desktop you can go into the shortcut
properties and assign whatever shortcut you want, e.g. Alt+Control+C or
Alt+Control+G etc. There might be a time when you want to fall back on
Alt+Control+IE so
I wold leave your IE shortcut alone and make a new one for Chrome.
Auto forms mode is a Jaws setting and has nothing to do with the shortcut
key you use to open your browser unless you are talking about something else
and I am completely misunderstanding your question.

Re: Correcting the way my synthesizer says something

 

Robin,

             This just in directly from VFO.  Give it a try:
--------------------------------

Thank you for contacting VFO ® Technical Support. First of all, if you create a dictionary entry of the letter “v” or “V” followed by white space, the JAWS® program will assume that every entry and the space after the letter. So occurrences like “v3” will be ignored. However, if you put a space before the letter in the “Actual Word” field, then JAWS will interpret the letter “v” or “V” as the beginning of the term.

 

Next, you should use the “*” (asterisk) symbol immediately after the letter to stand for any numeric combinations that would follow. Once this is done JAWS will read the items correctly. The following example illustrates this feature.

 

Your actual word would be “ v*”, with the replacement word as “version” (without the quotes). JAWS would then read:

 

“ V3” will be read as “Version “3

“ V4” will be read as “Version 4”

 

If you have any additional questions regarding this or any other issue, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Go to control center and choose default programs, enter, then to music player and choose Winamp as default player.

Re: file type associations

 

What are you trying to do? If all you want is to change a program associated with a certain extension you can do it from the properties of the file, e.g. press Alt+Enter on the file. For example, if you want to change it so MP3 files open in iTunes instead of Groove Music, find an MP3 file, press Alt+Enter, then find the "Change" button and select iTunes.

touch screen windows 10

mike mcglashon
 

Hey guys:

 

Am curious,

I wish to turn my touch screen back on in win 10;

When I follow directions on ms support page,

It says to:

Open device manager,

Look for human interface devices,

Then right arrow and open it,

Then look for hid – complient touch screen;

 

This is where the problem is,

Jaws doesn’t red that,

It says hid – complient consumer device for a few of them, and,

For others, it says hid – complient vendor device;

Under human interface device, I see 14 entries within that box?

 

Is there something I am missing?

 

Is it that jaws doesn’t recognize what those icons are?

 

I also tried this with nvda and also narrator, and got same results;

Re: can you save information from a web page to your desktop?

 

Regardless of which method one uses, and the MS Print to PDF is a good one, this is generally the best way to save webpage content in a way that is readable outside a web browser.  I use PDF Creator, but the concept is precisely the same, it is a virtual printer that takes what it's given to "print" and puts it into a PDF file.

With regard to the original query, for a personal credit report, I would be surprised if there is not a "save as PDF" option somewhere on that webpage, but perhaps not.  I know I've saved my credit reports in the past using a feature on the reporting entity's webpage, not via PDF Creator.

Re: can you save information from a web page to your desktop?

 

If the website has a print button and you use Windows 10 you can always use the Microsoft Print to PDF printer and save the file to your desktop (or documents folder), then you have a PDF file which you can open in Acrobat Reader and print on a printer or save or email to somebpody.

Subject: Re: can you save information from a web page to your desktop?

Hi, David. Theoretically, you can save a webpage anywhere. The trick is that Internet Explorer, and sometimes other browsers, want to save information in the last folder in which you were working. So, for example, say I was last working in Music, and pasted something into the clipboard from there.

If I were to use CONTROL plus S to save a webpage to my computer, It would try to save that webpage in the Music folder, since that is where I last copied something from.

If you know how to use your "browse buttons, though, you can change where your browser is going to save a webpage or html document at any given time.
