Two More Problems With Jaws 2019 and Outlook 2016

Tom Behler
 

Hello, again, everyone.

 

I have discovered two more problems with Jaws 2019 and Outlook 2016 on my Windows 7 laptop.

 

When I use the insert numpad 2 command to read an entire message, Jaws skips parts of lines.  I can read the complete lines by arrowing down through the message, but, as you can imagine, this gets quite cumbersome.

 

In addition, I have noticed that Jaws now gives phonetics for the first letter of a word when I navigate through a message that I’m composing, and I also notice that Jaws sometimes speaks the last character I type again after several seconds.

 

I seem to recall someone else having similar issues but am not sure how or whether they got resolved.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

 

Tom Behler

 


FW: Anoying Computer Bogging Down Issue

Tom Behler
 

I'm re-sending the below e-mail history, since I didn't get any more
responses since Rob's original reply.

For starters, I'd like to know how to turn off the preview pane.

Thanks!

I can't get F8 to work for turning the preview pane off. When I use the key
command, nothing happens.

Is there another way to do this?

For the record, I have the folder pane set to normal, and the reading pane
set to off.

Once again, I'm using Outlook 2016 with Office 365 and Jaws 2019 on this
Windows 7 laptop.

Subject: Anoying Computer Bogging Down Issue

Hello, everyone.

I am not sure if this is totally Jaws related, so please bare with my
question here.

Recently, I have found that my computer boggs down when arrowing down
through a list of Outlook 2016 e-mail in-box messages. I find that, after I
get to approximately the 30th message in the listview, Jaws and my computer
boggs down to the point that I have to wait for one or two seconds to arrow
down to the next message. Right now I have about 45 messages in my inbox.

Has anyone else found this problem, and if so, what did you do to correct
it?

For the record, this problem has only started to occur recently. I'm using
Windows 7 with Jaws 2019 on a business-grade Dell laptop.

Re: Lenovo Vantage tool

Jason White
 

Lenovo Vantage is their application for configuring various settings and for updating firmware, drivers, etc.

With the touch cursor and the use of Tab/Shift-Tab for navigation, I can work my way through it for the most part. There is room for improvement, however. It's fundamentally a "modern" Windows application downloaded from the Microsoft Store.

I'm very pleased with my Lenovo laptop over-all.

Hi, Tom. My friend also had Avast antivirus, and used the tool to get rid of Avast. It says that it requires safe mode, but if you run it, it will still work, and will uninstall the antivirus program. Also, if using Windows 10, you can now go into safe mode with either Narrator or JAWS, and run programs in safe mode.

Unfortunately in my experience and according to  numerous messages on Jaws and tech lists this does not remove all traces of Avast. On my Win 7 computer I was never able to get rid of Avast until I had a complete reinstall of Win 7. Avast did have a free download of a program to get rid of what was left of a normal un install but it required going into safe mode.  Tom

Uninstalling Avast is not in any way different than any other program.  Open Control Panel, Programs and Features, select the program you wish to uninstall from the list, then bring up the context menu and select Uninstall from it.

Re: How to put a radio URL into a play list file, .?

Peter Tesar
 

I have found a web site that gives some of the BBC URL addresses.


http://www.suppertime.co.uk/blogmywiki/2015/04/updated-list-of-bbc-network-radio-urls/


I pasted each link into Notepad and saved it with the extension .m3u.

Now both Plextalk and Windows Media Player plays the broadcast for BBC1 thru BBC4.


Thanks  Peter T.

yes, they are.

yes, it is that simple, but I think the trick is to find out what the 
correct address should be to create a playlist or paste into the URL 
edit field, but as far as I know, that'll have to be provided by the 
broadcasting engineer/manager/director/administrator, in which case they 
will email you such a file if their method for streaming can support the 
use of PLS or M3U files. the M3U is the format that works in older media 
players and the PLS format is the format meant for modern 	players. . 
but modern players can play M3U playlists as well. and ASX is basically 
(dead) not used as it once was.

I'd also be interested to know if there is a way to find out what the 
correct address would be, not just for the BBC streams, but for any 
stream without having to ask the appropriate individuals.

Subject: How to put a radio URL into a play list file, .?

Hello List,



I listen to Web radio on my Plextalk Linio. The .asx, .m3u and .pls
files were provided by Plextalk but, now the BBC files do not work.

A few years ago, the BBC announced a change to their streaming standard.
Can I create my own file to play on the Plextalk?

I have never intentionally played music on my computer, so I don’t know
much about Play Lists.

I noticed that the .asx, .m3u and .pls files are text files containing a
radio station URL. Perhaps these are called play list files.

How do I get the correct Web radio URL into these files? Is it as simple
as copying and pasting the URL into Notepad and saving it as a .m3u file?

Now I listen to the BBC online, using FireFox to go to this streaming site:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/bbc_world_service

I copied the address and pasted it into Notepad and into the Windows
Media Player URL box.

Using Notepad I saved the file with the file extension .m3u

but, it won’t play.

I also pasted this URL into the Windows Media Player URL box.

I get this message:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The player might not support
the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress
the file.

The .asx file contains this URL:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_london/

It no longer works.

I would like to listen to the BBC World Service on the PlexTalk.

I would appreciate some advice or Web page that would explain the
concepts of radio station addresses and how to create a file that will
play in the PlexTalk.

Thanks,

Peter T.

Sieghard, while I can't disagree with you generally, I can specifically.  If you had someone who was assiduous in the "care and feeding" of their Windows 7 (or 8/8.1) system upgrades to Windows 10 are virtually indistinguishable from clean installs.   That being said, most people are far from assiduous about doing the housekeeping necessary to keep any Windows version really clean and uncluttered, and if the system is "well used" and already has issues with instability those tend to carry over.  Upgrading an unstable system tends to result in an unstable system afterward.

The above being said, I still suggest completely clean installs only as a last resort if an individual has years of user data files and installed software they'd like to preserve.  I have found that doing the normal Windows 7/8/8.1 upgrade, followed immediately by another using the same technique within Windows 10 itself (see this article:  Doing an In-place "Upgrade" to Reinstall Windows 10 Keeping Apps/Programs and User Files) and note that you do not need to turn off safe boot, that instruction is superfluous and a grand PITA) pretty much completely purges the current installation of Windows 10 (the upgraded one) and replaces it with a fresh copy.

Only if push comes to shove after having tried the above will I recommend Doing a Completely Clean Install of Windows 10.
The grunt work involved in setting up a system with all its programs, add-ons/extensions, settings tweaks, etc., is terribly tedious so I try to do what I can to avoid it when that's possible.  If it isn't, however . . .

If you have a good backup just in case, and you're comfortable running PowerShell scripts, it should be fairly clear from Microsoft's instructions what to do. If you don't have that background, then I'd suggest having the installation done by someone who does.

The baseline configuration enables various Windows security features, including virtualization-based security, attack surface reduction rules, network protection (blocking of known malicious Web sites), tighter user permissions, stronger BitLocker encryption, prevention of users from writing to unencrypted USB drives, etc.

problem reading subject line on calendar

Hello,

 

I’m using Windows 1809 latest version, Jaws2018 and Outlook 2016. When I’m in the calendar I will tab through to each appointment/meeting. For some reason the subject line is not read. The date, time and location is read.

 

I installed Jaws18 and the subject line is read. Tells me I either need to change a setting in Jaws2018 or call VFO.

 

Any thoughts?

Re: Is there a reason to not upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

You would have to compare Apples to Apples so to speak and look at each computer's CPU, memory and hard drive or SSD. Until very recently I was still using a desktop PC at my business which I bought in February of 2008. It was an inexpensive and basic business PC which back then had what was a $99 CPU, a $79 desktop case with power supply and the only upgrade I made was to change the original hard drive to an SSD a few years ago, it had 8 Gb of RAM. That PC ran Windows 10 just as well as it did Windows 7 except that it crashed less under Windows 10 and in my experience at least Windows 10 runs as good or better on the same hardware as Windows 7 did. One thing which will definitely make the biggest difference is the hard drive, if you were to replace a 6 or 8 year old standard hard drive with an SSD which if you go with a 240 Gb size you can get for probably $99 these days you'd notice a very significant performance boost.

Of course it also depends whether you "upgrade" Windows 7 to Windows 10 or whether you install Windows 10 from scratch including deleting and repartitioning the hard drive, a completely new install will always result in a better running system.

Sieghard

There can e lots of reasons for a computer to run slow.  I had slowness issues when i upgraded my old laptop to windows 10.  It wasn't exactly fast under windows 7 either, though.  I finally found the answer: a failing hard drive was the main issue.  Just because windows thinks the drive is okay doesn't mean you shouldn't do a chkdsk once in a while just to check things out.

Re: Is there a reason to not upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

Dave...
 

In my case, my Dell Latitude E6520 reported having hardware not compatible with Windows 10. So I stick with Windows 7 until a new computer falls out of the sky into my lap.

I have a refurbished computer that it was estimated ran windows 7 originally, now running windows 10. It does work, however, you could make and drink your coffee by the time JAWS loads up. It started with JAWS 18.  I now have a Mac Book pro that was built around 012.  It was converted to a windows 10 computer and it runs a lot faster. That is just my thoughts, yes a windows 7 can be upgraded to 10, you just might get frustrated with the slowness of the performance.

I'm running Windows 10 on older machines--2012 older anyway--and it works just fine. I haven't had one single problem since upgrading in February, 2017.

Hi,

 

I use a work computer which is still running Windows 7. We have now, finally, been given an opportunity to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, with a no return to Windows 7 policy once upgraded.

 

Is there any reason to not upgrade to Windows 10? This will be an upgrade on an older computer, and not a replacement computer, if that would make a difference.

Re: How to put a radio URL into a play list file, .?

"I noticed that the .asx, .m3u and .pls files are text files containing
a radio station URL. Perhaps these are called play list files."

yes, they are.

"... Is it as simple as copying and pasting the URL into Notepad and
saving it as a .m3u file?"

yes, it is that simple, but I think the trick is to find out what the
correct address should be to create a playlist or paste into the URL
edit field, but as far as I know, that'll have to be provided by the
broadcasting engineer/manager/director/administrator, in which case they
will email you such a file if their method for streaming can support the
use of PLS or M3U files. the M3U is the format that works in older media
players and the PLS format is the format meant for modern players. .
but modern players can play M3U playlists as well. and ASX is basically
(dead) not used as it once was.

I'd also be interested to know if there is a way to find out what the
correct address would be, not just for the BBC streams, but for any
stream without having to ask the appropriate individuals.

Subject: How to put a radio URL into a play list file, .?

Hello List,



I listen to Web radio on my Plextalk Linio. The .asx, .m3u and .pls
files were provided by Plextalk but, now the BBC files do not work.

A few years ago, the BBC announced a change to their streaming standard.
Can I create my own file to play on the Plextalk?

I have never intentionally played music on my computer, so I don’t know
much about Play Lists.

I noticed that the .asx, .m3u and .pls files are text files containing a
radio station URL. Perhaps these are called play list files.

How do I get the correct Web radio URL into these files? Is it as simple
as copying and pasting the URL into Notepad and saving it as a .m3u file?

Now I listen to the BBC online, using FireFox to go to this streaming site:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/bbc_world_service

I copied the address and pasted it into Notepad and into the Windows
Media Player URL box.

Using Notepad I saved the file with the file extension .m3u

but, it won’t play.

I also pasted this URL into the Windows Media Player URL box.

I get this message:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The player might not support
the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress
the file.

The .asx file contains this URL:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_london/

It no longer works.

I would like to listen to the BBC World Service on the PlexTalk.

I would appreciate some advice or Web page that would explain the
concepts of radio station addresses and how to create a file that will
play in the PlexTalk.

Thanks,

Peter T.
