For those complaining about SpinRite, it would help if you read the information at the site.   The low-level file systems used under Windows (and a number of other operating systems) have not changed in a very, very long time.   Thus, it's not necessary for software that examines, analyzes and fixes same to change, either.

The SpinRite page explicitly states:  " SpinRite is able to operate on all Windows XP NTFS formats, all DOS FAT, all Linux file systems, Novell, Macintosh (if temporarily moved into a PC) or anything else."   NTFS is NTFS as NTFS has always been.  The various FAT varieties as well.

Steve Gibson doesn't generally leave anything up on the Gibson Research site that isn't currently useful, even if not developed recently.   If he's still selling it, and he is, it's certain to still do what it was advertised as doing.

In any case, errors such as the one being described here always scream "failed or imminently failing" drive to me.   You may be able to get more information about what's wrong, which is useful to know just for one's own information, but it's unlikely to be fixable.

If this is the case, then how can it be JAWS accessible??? Indeed, if there is no speech, how can you use this program in the first place without sighted help? The original inquirer specifically asked for a utility that is JAWS accessible.

6.1 and subsequently 6.2 or above is coming, but when, I haven't got a
clue. it's true it's been a while it hasn't been updated
, but there wasn't any need as there weren't any complaints of problems
in 6.0... according to Steve Gibson.

I wish there was a DOS screen reader I could use when Spinrite runs.
I recall Freedom Scientific had a link on their website for saving a
copy of JAWS For DOS, but it is no longer there. darn.

The GRC web site clearly refers to the latest version of Spinwrite as,,
"Spinwrite 6.0 for Windows XP".?? It does not mention Windows 7, 8 or

Hello, everyone.

 

Within the past few wekes, whenever I try to play an audio file from my external hard drive with Winamp, I get a message that says something like:  “Winamp has detected a an external drive;  do you want Winamp to access  this drive?”.

 

There is a yes/no button, but I can’t get to it.

 

I have tried enter, and the space bar.  I also have tried rooting the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor, but have had no luck.

 

Occasionally, after trying, I can get the message to play, but then I get an error message about reporting the problem to Winamp.

 

And, once I get these messages, the only way I can get rid of them is to completely shut down and re-boot my computer.

 

Has anyone experienced this issue?  If so, how can I respond, or better yet, how can I turn this anoying notification off?

 

I’m using windows 10 version 1809 with the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

Thanks!

I noticed this too, but I  was using the same version of Winamp on my xp machine without this issue, so I think it has something to do with Windows 10, or at least, I thought it did, but you verifying that an older version of Winamp actually does not have this issue is – very interesting.

In any case, I pretty much stopped using shift-l to add folders to playlists because of this, and now just use the context/shell option instead, which is really just as good … better as far as Windows itself is concerned, anyway.

I've discovered an interesting   problem with that version. If I press Shift plus L to open a folder, I can navigate to a folder which I absolutely know contains nearly three hundred folders, but Winamp says there's only one. If I remove  5.666 and reinstall 5.63, it works correctly. Weird, eh?

Hi, Tom. Which version of Winamp are you using? I am using Winamp version 5.66, full, and I am not getting this message.

Hello, everyone.

 

Within the past few wekes, whenever I try to play an audio file from my external hard drive with Winamp, I get a message that says something like:  “Winamp has detected a an external drive;  do you want Winamp to access  this drive?”.

 

There is a yes/no button, but I can’t get to it.

 

I have tried enter, and the space bar.  I also have tried rooting the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor, but have had no luck.

 

Occasionally, after trying, I can get the message to play, but then I get an error message about reporting the problem to Winamp.

 

And, once I get these messages, the only way I can get rid of them is to completely shut down and re-boot my computer.

 

Has anyone experienced this issue?  If so, how can I respond, or better yet, how can I turn this anoying notification off?

 

I’m using windows 10 version 1809 with the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

Thanks!

Hi, Tom. If the USB plugin is in the plugins folder, there’s nothing risky in removing it. I don’t even have it in my plugins folder.

Hi again, Tom. It sounds like when you installed Winamp, you left something checked, when it might have been simpler to uncheck some things. I uncheck Winamp agent, I uncheck the library, and I also uncheck visualization.

I've discovered an interesting   problem with that version. If I press Shift plus L to open a folder, I can navigate to a folder which I absolutely know contains nearly three hundred folders, but Winamp says there's only one. If I remove  5.666 and reinstall 5.63, it works correctly. Weird, eh?

No, I have not done this.

I'm hoping the solution is a bit simpler, but will keep this in mind as
well.

have you tried setting the window restriction level to unrestricted when the
JAWS cursor is active?

press the numpad minus to invoke the JAWS cursor and before moving the JAWS
cursor, press and hold down the insert and press r until you hear
"unrestricted" and see if you can locate and left click (numpad slash) the
yes or no button. don't forget to set the window restriction level back to
application window restriction.
