Thunderbird and Attachments List on Outgoing Messages

 

I'm working with a client using JAWS 2018 and the latest version of Thunderbird.  When we attach files to a message, then later go back to review the actual files attached in the list that's part of the message compose window, the file names simply do not read.  Does anyone else experience this?

It's particularly unhelpful when you want to make sure that you've attached file X or Y to not have the screen reader identify the files as you traverse the list.

Re: New Winamp beta on winamp.com

Mario
 

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).

My laptop has a fingerprint sensor, so all I have to do is to touch the sensor at the sign-in dialog - no typing of a password required, and security is maintained.

It is not recommended to turn off the sign in because it leaves your system completely open to anyone who might access your computer. As I recall you are on Windows 10, if so, tap the Windows key, type account and hit enter.
Arrow down to sign in options (I think it is called) and you can change things in there.

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.

Re: difficulty uploading large file

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.

Hm, how large is the file?

Somehow I doubt this is a problem with Filezilla.

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.

 

Cheers,

 

Kevin

The site is probably poorly coded.  It would be interesting to compare how other screen readers handle it, if you want to give the Url.  It may also matter what version of JAWS you are running. If there’s a way to get JAWS to change its view of such sites, I don’t know about it.

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?
