Re: Winamp Question if allowed to ask

Dave...
 

Pressing that right arrow quickly multiple times will move ahead quickly,
but not sure if there is a way to make the jumps larger.

Subject: Winamp Question if allowed to ask


Hi all. A little Winamp question...

While playing a track in Winamp, if I want to move it ahead while
playing, I press the right arrow key and it moves it ahead a very little
amount, like 5 or so seconds. Is there some setting where I can make it
move ahead by a greater amount of time, and or, move the pointer as it
were to the end of a song?

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks,

Morey Worthington

serious itunes issues

Jessica D <jldail13@...>
 

Hi,
I'm trying to create a ringtone from a song I bought today.

I'm not sure why this is, but I can't find any of my music in itunes.
It just shows my voice memos, which isn't what I want.

How can I fix this?

Thanks,
Jessica


Re: Sound volume on websites with Google Crome

Probably nothing you can do, just turn all the other volumes down after turning up the master volume.

I think, the chrome volume might be low.
open the chrome as well the volume mixer , and tab to the chrome
volume and increase the chrome volume using up/down arrow keys.

Re: Zoom advice needed

Gudrun Brunot
 

Good idea, Steve, and that's what I did, sent them a help request. I've not
as yet gotten my stuff straightened out, but I've learned the following:
There are 4 ways of signing up, work, via Google, via Facebook, or single
subscriber option (SSO) If you are an SSO subscriber, you can not change
your email address, and you have to contact technical support for that. They
did call me this morning, but I was out, and my husband answered. They told
him they would email me, which I wish he'd told them not to do... "Call her
back, for crying out loud!" Well, he didn't say that, so I've called again
and left another very polite message...

Re: adding a hollow square bullet in word

 

Lisa,

          Then the instructions should definitely work, as I did the step-by-steps to create them using Word 2016.  I like the hollow square of Wingdings best because it's got a bit of visual weight to it, like a bullet should.   There are other options, too, and if you end up wanting something that floats a bit more lightly on the page I can suggest the Symbol font, character number 240.

Lisa,

           Also, if whoever is specifying this bullet is very picky, find out what font they want it to be pulled from.  There are scads of hollow square or hollow very-nearly-square characters across multiple fonts that one could choose.   If they have an existing document using that particular bullet, you can more easily determine precisely what character they want.

           Otherwise, here are the steps to pick an hollow square as your bullet using the Wingdings font to choose the character from:

1. In your document, insert a bulleted list using ALT+H, U

2. The select bullet dialog comes up, hit D to activate Define bullet.

3. In the Define Bullet dialog, hit ALT+S for Symbol

4. In the Symbol Dialog, choose Wingdings from the dropdown for fonts, which should have focus upon entry to the dialog.

5. Hit ALT+C to get to the character number box, enter 111 in that box, which is the number for the hollow square character in Webdings.

6. Activate OK button out of Symbol dialog.

7. Activate OK button out of Define Bullet dialog.

8. Begin typing your first list item.

After having done this, the hollow square should appear first in the recently used bullets, which show up right after hitting ALT+H,U.  You can select it directly from there after having defined it for the first time, or go through the whole process above (which is much faster than it seems once you've done it).

picture smart not so smart.

netbat66
 

hi,
i have a problem with picture smart.
with jaws 19 newest release. 64bit windows 7.
it will not scan a picture. as soon as i tell it to use my dell b1165 mono all
in one printer it says finished, could not detect text. but the scanner light does not even move.
the rest of the program is working with images in the picture smart folder.
is there any preference settings that can be changed in the program?
my scanner works fine with openbook 8 and the windows paint program with windows 7 64bit.
thanks for info.

Re: having a problem using chrome to download the latest update to jaws.

I fixed this one before.  I don't have the exact page I used, but this one has the gist:

https://appuals.com/how-to-fix-the-dangerous-download-blocked-error-in-chrome/knowing, I


By default, chrome blocks files with names that google doesn't know are safe.  Disabling it is the only way to download things like pdf's from places that seem to randomly generate the name on request.

Re: sounds for Firefox

 

There are no settings that I can find in Extra Sounds, and from the reviews it seems as though it's intended to bring back navigational sounds as they were.  It is experimental but was updated last in December 2018.

Sonance appears to be an ambient sound generator, not tied to user actions.  I can't find anything under the name Noise and Click.

sounds for Firefox

Mario
 

I'd like to add sounds to Firefox such as we had in Navigational Sounds
for the older versions of FF. I stopped using the Quantum versions
because of the lack of sounds which used to indicate what was going on.
I found one called Extra Sounds, Sonance, Noise and Click but can't
figure out how to access it's settings to mod or just see what sounds it
can use. maybe there's one that's more usable for us blind users. does
anyone have any suggestions or can help with the ones I mentioned?


having a problem using chrome to download the latest update to jaws.

Jim Rawls
 

Hi all,

I’m new to chrome, so bear with me. When I select the download link to download the latest update to jaws, I hear a message that says, this type of file could harm your computer. Do you want to allow, and then it gives the name of the update? Where do I say yes? I see a keep button so I hit enter on it or space bar, and it keeps asking me the same question. How do I get past this? I am using windows ten and jaws 2019 previous update. Jim
