Alternative disk management software accessible using a screen-reader

Dave Durber
 

Hello everyone:

as the subject says, I am looking for such software to try and delete the existing partition on my USB memory stick and return it to its full size of 64 GB.

I have tried using the Disk Partition and Formatting program which comes with Windows and the command line DiskPart program with no success.

So, I am hoping that someone can suggest an alternative program for me to try.

Thanks in anticipation for any suggestions.

Marty, if you're using Windows 7 you can create a desktop shortcut by
pressing the windows key that will bring up the search dialog box, type
in iTunes, press the application key or shift+f10, down arrow to and
enter on the send to submenu, down arrow to and enter on desktop create
shortcut.

When I installed iTunes it automatically created a desktop shortcut. Did
you install the Windows Store version? If so I highly recommend you get
rid of it and all its components and install the iTunes desktop
application from the Apple website.

Re: itunes on the task bar

Dean Martineau
 

I’m assuming you have iTunes installed on your win10 computer. To pin it to the task bar, in the start menu, type iTunes.  The app will come up in the list of suggestions likely before you’ve finished typing.  Arrow down to focus on the program in the list of suggestions and hit the context menu key.  Arrow through the choices and choose Pin to Task Bar.

 

If you want a shortcut on the desktop and there isn’t one already, there are two approaches.  (probably more than two.)  From the aforementioned context menu, choose Open File Location.  Now locate the executable, itunes.exe.  this is easier to do if in File Explorer, you have file extensions showing in the Show-Hide group on the view tab. Once you locate the executable, use the context menu and choose the Send To choice (shortcut key n,) and choose Desktop Create Shortcut.

 

Approach #2 involves a little geeky step which is easy, and makes the whole operation easy.  Press windows+r for the run dialog and type this as written: shell:appsfolder  A listing of all the apps on your computer will appear.  Find iTunes and press the context menu key.  Find Create Shortcut and press enter.  The system will complain that it cannot create a shortcut here and offer to put one on the desktop, which is of course what you want.

Are you trying to modify particular frequency bands or only the system
volume as a whole? If the latter the windows mixer should be more than
enough and is plenty accessible.

Subject: Looking for a Jaws accessible equalizer for PC



Hello list,

A couple of weeks ago, I was beginning to have issues with my HP Envy’s
audio. Major fluctuating in sound. Almost like audioducking, but for the
whole system.

Anyway, I did some poking around and looks like it wasn’t an uncommon issue
with HP laptops and the Bang and Olufsen sound package that comes with the
machine. I followed the instructions included in one forum posting that
included the uninstallation of what must have been a bad audio driver and
reinstalled the Realtec audio package. The reinstallation was supposed to
also reinstall the B&O equalizer, but for whatever reason, it did not.

The crazy audio jumping up and down got resolved and I wasn’t too broken up
about the B&O equalizer not getting reinstalled since it wasn’t the most
accessible application. Lots of unlabeled buttons, sliders and stuff.

Anyway, I would like to be able to make some tweaks to my laptop’s audio
since I don’t necessarily like the tinny/flat sound with Jaws for
everything. I’ve always more or less used what’s included in whatever PC I’m
on, but would like to know if there’s in fact an accessible equalizer
package out there that I can use to make some base/trevel and other
adjustments?

Again, not something I’ve ever really bothered with so I wouldn’t know where
to look per say.



Thanks,

Cristóbal

Re: Windows 10 pre

 

I am presuming the original question was based on the need for a Windows PE environment for, say, recovery from a full system image backup.

There are lots of uses for Windows PE not in any way connected to actually installing Windows.

Yes, actually, it is.  Microsoft is not advertising this, but I've upgraded machines, the most recent about a month ago, from Windows 7 to Windows 10 using media created using the Media Creation Tool and it went just like it did up through July 2016, including automatic activation.

I have not done one post Version 1809, but I know of one that was done using that ISO before it was pulled, too.

Re: Windows 10 pre

 

Why do you not just run a Windows 10 installation from a USB stick and then start Narrator, you can set up Windows 10 perfectly independently this way, just wait a few minutes after the installation starts loading and then press Windows Key+Control+Enter and Narrator will come and speak throughout the installation.

Unless something has changed very recently, and I mean within the last 5 days or so, one can still do a free upgrade from Windows 7/8/8.1 to Windows 10.

I have done several recently, using these instructions (but where the initial steps, up through kicking off setup.exe for Win10, occur from within whatever version of Windows you currently have and are trying to upgrade):

                             Doing an In-place "Upgrade" to Reinstall Windows 10 Keeping Apps/Programs and User Files (though you'll be installing, not reinstalling)
                             NOTE:  You do NOT need to follow the instruction regarding turning off Secure Boot.  It is superfluous.

Has been working like a charm for months now.

Randy,

            When you say "new computer," how new?   It is not at all unusual for computers to sit on the proverbial or literal shelf for many months after being shipped, and I received a computer about a year ago that arrived with Version 1511 loaded.

             You should eventually update to Version 1803 automatically, but at this point if you so desire it would make sense to use the Update Assistant (AKA the Update this PC button) on the Windows 10 Download page.  Definitely take a backup before doing this, though.
