hello;
if you absolutely don't want to sign in when you bootup your computer,
you can do the following to have the computer boot directly to the desktop.


once your computer has booted up to the desktop,

1, windows-key+r=run,
2, type in: netplwiz press enter,

3, you should see this text,
Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
check box checked,
you need to uncheck this box.
now you need to go to ok button.

Re: New Winamp beta on winamp.com

Brian, Winamp5.66, to uninstall or not necessary?

Subject: New Winamp beta on winamp.com

There have been a couple of reports of folks having issues installing
the Winamp 5.8 beta that's currently available for download at Winamp's
site.  I had no issues at all.

I used NVDA during the install, and I have Unchecky on my system which
runs Win10 Home, 64-bit, Version 1809 [yes, I got an early update that
worked], Build 17763.  Here is what I encountered after the initial UAC
dialog when launching the Winamp installer:

Dialog 1:  Opening Dialog, just hit the Next button

Dialog 2:  Install type (Standard versus Custom).  Unchecky, if you're
using it, switches any installer that gives standard and custom options
to custom, since if there is bundled software the only way it will be
exposed for a user to choose or decline is with a custom install.  In
the case of Winamp I can report that there is no bundled software, so if
you wish to choose the standard install you should be safe.  That being
said, you will probably not get the next dialog for choosing components
you wish to install, so if you wish to pick and choose, keep/choose the
custom option.  I proceeded with Custom.  Next button.

Dialog 3:  Install Location.  Uses the Program Files (x86) Winamp
folder, which is precisely as expected.  Next button.

Dialog 4:  Choose Components.  Defaults to Full with all skins,
visualizations, etc.  There are three other options to choose from, and
no matter which you choose the component tree changes to indicate via
checkboxes what components are/are not installed with that option.  You
can customize any of them.  I just went with Full.  Next button.

Dialog 5:  Choose Start Options.  Has three checkboxes:  Start Menu
Entry, Quick Launch Icon, Desktop Icon.
                Next button

Dialog 6:  This is the last true Winamp dialog, however, you will get
another UAC dialog right after you launch Winamp for the first time just
like you do when you launch the installer.  The only thing on this
dialog is a checkbox asking if you want to launch Winamp when finished
and the close (or maybe it was finish) button.

NOTE:  If using NVDA, pay attention to the rising beep indicator to
determine when the install is actually complete.  The Winamp installer
exposes each and every item during the install to NVDA, so it keeps
reading and reading and reading well after Dialog 6 above has been
presented and I have no idea how long this might keep going on as I
stopped it about 30 seconds or so after I saw that the install had
completed (and it did complete when the beep indicator tells you it did).

You can turn on the Windows startup sound in the Sound schemes. I think there is something about Fast Startup skipping the sound but I don't recall those steps right now. Not enough coffee this morning, grin.

Hi, Val. You can still get the Startup music. It depends how your computer was set up. If you have a local Windows account, it is very easy to remove the password so you don't need to log in every time the computer starts. If you have an account which was set up to log in with Microsoft, it is more difficult.

Did you give up the Mac, Val?

Nice to hear from you again.

Hi,

 

Using latest Filezilla,I am attempting to upload a fairly large rar file to an FTP site and although the file test extracts  on my system without errors, it will not extract at the other end.  This has been attempted numerous times with the same result.

 

Does anyone know if this is because of the rar format being used or some other problem. What if the zip or some other format was used instead.

 

Failing that, how  can I use one of the sites where a file can be uploaded   and then downloaded by another person? Although I have used one of these sites to download a file, I know nothing about uploading a file and making it available for another person.

I would suggest verifying the md5 or SHA-256 hashes once the file is transferred to the remote end.

If they don’t match, something went wrong with the data transfer.

Have you tried on more than one ftp site?

Might be a problem on the remote end, since the file extracts fine on yours.

 

I personally use sendspace, but it is slow, for uploading large files especially. It’s a pain but I have a paid account and basically unlimited storage.

Many people use dropbox today and I’m sure someone could give you pointers about that if that’s what you need.

But FTP is pretty tried and true, you know?

Re: calendar on web site

Kevin Meyers <kevinmeyers@...>
 

You are correct, the site is poorly coded. The site is wasa.org. That is Wisconsin Adaptive Sports Association. The home page has way to much text. Jaws reformats the screen and what shows up at the bottom of the screen for someone with sight, appears in the middle of the screen when Jaws reads it. I’m using Jaws2018 most recent version. I did talk with the person that makes changes to the site expressing my concerns. The sport of goal ball is the first sport that has been recently added. Today or tomorrow there would be some changes made. Let me know what you find. The calendar is on the page that comes up when you press enter on the ‘master calendar’ link. There were to many changes I wanted to provide. I thought it would be good to make changes in stages.

Hello,

 

On a web site there is a calendar used to show dates and time of sporting events. Jaws reads it as three different tables. The first one is the day of the week (Sun, Mon, Tue, etc). Then next table shows the DD (1, 2, 3, 4, etc. The third table shows the time first on the table and then the actual event.

 

Is there a way to make Jaws read the calendar so it shows day of week  (Sun, Mon, Tue, etc), DD (1, 2, 3, etc) and the time and actual event on one line of one table?

Yes, if you want to autofit the longest entry anywhere in the column, you would need to first select the column. Often I already know that I am in the cell with the longest entry, so I can just do the autofit option without selecting the whole column first.

As for column width, I use the old Excel 2003 keyboard shortcut that still works. Hit Alt C (think Column) and then w to open a small edit box that tells you current width and allows you to change the entry.
Also, Alt C then A will autofit the width.

So much so that I have installed excel 2010 on his computer in order for him to get work done. He is reporting the following issues. Jaws becomes silent when saving files, formulas aren’t read to him, he will lose an hour of work randomly, he can’t widen columns, add new sheets, rename sheets, etc. All of these things and others I may not have mentioned he can do in Excel 2010. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Subject: Office 365 Excel 2016 and Jaws 2018 Issues

Hi List,

One of my executives is having quite a few issues with Jaws 2018 and
Office 365 Excel 2016, the latest build of both under Windows 7. So
much so that I have installed excel 2010 on his computer in order for
him to get work done. He is reporting the following issues. Jaws
becomes silent when saving files, formulas aren’t read to him, he will
lose an hour of work randomly, he can’t widen columns, add new sheets,
rename sheets, etc. All of these things and others I may not have
mentioned he can do in Excel 2010. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Brian

Re: Office 365 Excel 2016 and Jaws 2018 Issues

Van Lant, Robin
 

I heavily use Excel 2016 in Windows 10 with JAWS 2018. I moved to JAWS from Window Eyes as the same time I moved to Win 10 and Office 2016, so I'm not really able to compare JAWS in the two versions of Excel. The only real issue I have in Excel is a noticeable lag when opening large files where autofilters are turned on.

As for column width, I use the old Excel 2003 keyboard shortcut that still works. Hit Alt C (think Column) and then w to open a small edit box that tells you current width and allows you to change the entry. Also, Alt C then A will autofit the width.

I do agree that we will have to move to Excel 2016 sooner rather than later. So, it sounds like they have moved things from the context menu into the ribbon.

Well, he will have to learn where to find it or remember the shortcut
keys, column width is Alt+H followed by O and W Also, I believe there are ways to add things to the context menu with various ttweaks, you'd have to Google this, but I'm almost certain I read there is a way to add things to the context menu.
I found it took a bit to get used to Office 2013 and later 2016 which isn't so different, but it was quite a change from Office 2010, but you can't stay on 2010 forever so one might as well deal with it.

He uses Excel, Outlook, and Word primarily. The ribbon is in Excel 2010. He reports the column width is no longer in the context menu in Excel 2016.

What other applications do you or your employee need to use? If it's primarily Office then upgrading to Windows 10 is fine, it is very stabil and Office works well.
I know you mentioned he can't change the width of columns and so on, if he came from Excel 2010, are you sure he knows how to do it, if I remember correctly, didn't Excel 2010 still use menus or di dit have ribbon menus already?
If he has to use older applications and if he uses the Jaws cursor a lot there is a good chance he will lose that in Windows 10.

I will attempt an Office repair. As for Windows 10, do others find better Jaws 2018/Excel 2016(Office 365) stability under Windows 10 rather than Windows 7? Are there any adjustments that I can make in Jaws or Excel to make them work better under Windows 7?

Thank you,

Brian

Should I send it to you off-list? Is it a matter of copying it out of the .jss file?

Thanks,
