Buffers don't have to be updated manually.  It is possible to set a buffer's update interval from one minute on up, in one-minute increments.

Hi!

TW Blue is still working great for me. The only difference is that you have to update the buffer to have more tweets come in!

I like that, because I did not like hundreds of tweets flying in all of the time, now, I can control when new tweets come into the buffer, by just updating the buffer.

Make sure you have the latest version of TW Blue!

Subject: What Are People Using For Twitter

 

Hello,

I use to use both Chicken Nugget and TW Blue for Twitter on my computer but neither of those apps will work for me now so I am wondering what you all use for Twitter these days? Are there any other accessible Twitter clients out there or are we pretty much out of luck when it comes to using Twitter on the PC?

Re: What Are People Using For Twitter

CN is definitely out since direct messaging no longer  works therein.


 TW Blue is a good alternative, although there are some quirks with it. First, If you send a direct message and manually enter the recipient's Twitter name, then tab to the text field, TW Blue thinks you're replying to  whatever message happens to be in focus in its internal list, but the message does in fact go to its intended recipient. Second, If you have never activated a Twitter account using TW Blue, you must use what's called a snapshot build, which you can get from the TW Blue Website, http://www.twblue.es. Snapshot builds have some extra code in them that uses Twitter's old way of authorizing a new application. TW Blue does have a keymap for Chicken Nugget. It isn't perfect, but once one gets used to it, it does do what it's supposed to.

Re: Rufis

 

Lifted from the middle of a set of instructions for doing a completely clean install of Windows 10, using Rufus to create the bootable USB drive using the Win10 ISO file.  The steps are the same regardless of the ISO file being used, though the answer to the MBR versus GPT part is not as important if you're not installing the operating system but just booting from a drive that contains a tool or tools.
------------------------------------------

Use Rufus (or a similar utility of your choosing) to burn the ISO to a flash drive to create bootable media.  The following lettered steps presume you’re using Rufus.  Attach your flash drive and run Rufus. In the first dropdown box:

a) If you know your machine is newer hardware that uses UEFI as opposed to BIOS, select GPT partition scheme for UEFI.  If the machine originally came with Windows 8 or Windows 10 this is definitely the choice to make.

b) If you know your machine is older and uses BIOS, or are uncertain as to whether you have BIOS or UEFI, select MBR partition scheme for UEFI or BIOS.  Virtually all machines that came with Windows 7 (and earlier Windows) were produced with BIOS and use MBR partitioning.

Leave the other checkboxes checked or unchecked with their defaults. 

4.  Find the Create a bootable disc using checkbox and make sure that the option ISO image is selected from the dropdown next to it.  Just beyond that dropdown is the Click to select an image . . . button.  Activate it and you will be presented with the standard Windows browse dialog that lets you locate and select the Windows 10 ISO file from wherever you saved it.

5. Activate the Start button.  The ISO image will now be burned to the flash drive as bootable.

Richard: That hot key works great. Thanks so much. However, for some reason
in word 2016 I used to have paste special in my options with the arrow keys,
it's not there anymore.
Nonetheless, this hot key does the job, so I won't worry about it.

Are you sure there is something on the clipboard? To make sure highlight a
piece of text and you will hear 'selected'. Then press control C and you
will hear 'copied to clipboard'. Then to make sure you have the selected
text I would just go to a new document and press control shift V. You will
then hear 'pasted from clipboard'. What you hear doesn't have the '. Even if
there is nothing on the clipboard and you press control shift V it will
still say 'pasted from clipboard'.

Reporting Issues with JAWS to Vispero Technical Support

 

I know that there are a great many seasoned JAWS users here who have the art of trouble reporting to Vispero (formerly VFO, formerly Freedom Scientific) perfected.  I also know that there are a great many new JAWS users who are reading at any given time who have no idea how to do so.  I have two current clients where we have been encountering bugs with JAWS who had absolutely no idea of how to report these to Vispero.  So, this evening I put together a brief "how to" document for those clients, and I thought I'd share that here in case someone else might find it useful.
----------------------------------

Reporting Issues with JAWS to Vispero (formerly VFO, formerly Freedom Scientific) Technical Support

As of this date, 10/19/2018, the e-mail address for Vispero Technical Support is Support@....  I personally prefer to use this method if I have to report a lot of specific steps to reproduce a problem.  I compose the e-mail as I take each step, adding them as I go along, so that I forget nothing.


They can also be reached by phone at (727) 803-8600, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 AM and 9:00 PM Eastern time.  I have found the phone support reps to be very helpful, particularly if you have a problem that’s time critical and that you need to get a fix or workaround for as soon as possible.


Things to remember with regard to working with technical support:

1.       It is impossible to fix something that cannot be reproduced.  Some issues are intermittent, and support will realize this, but if you are able to give the specific steps to make something happen that’s “the gold standard” of trouble reporting.

2.       If the issue is with behavior on a specific webpage, and that webpage does not require login credentials or otherwise have private information (e.g., certain Google Drive pages that are shared with you), please supply the web address of the page as part of the report.

3.      If you are having problems finding something using JAWS find that either:

a.      A sighted assistant is telling you that they can actually see on a page.

b.      You can find if you do brute force tabbing around a page.

definitely report this.  This is particularly critical on webpages where any object, whether a link, button, etc., etc., that is present is not being recognized by a JAWS find.

4.      If the issue is occurring with a specific program, identify the program as well as the version, e.g, Word 2013, Chrome 69.0.3497.100, etc.  In addition, please include the version of JAWS and Windows you’re working with.


You are helping not only yourself, but a huge number of other JAWS users by taking the time to submit reports, whether by e-mail or phone call.  The folks at Vispero cannot fix issues they are not aware of, and any really complex piece of software like JAWS will have issues that “flew under the radar” during testing.
