I would get smartmontools and see what it says about your drive.
Also, a great utility for disk repair is spinwrite at www.grc.com.

Hello Everyone:

I have a system running Windows 7 Professional 64 BIT, which I
intend upgrading to Windows 10 when I get a new Motherboard for

ROM, it has a 120 GB SSD, which is the system drive, and 2 1 TB
Hdd Drives, which ar F and G.

Yesterday, when I started the system, I tried to log onto drive
g. Windows reported a drive error. Of course, being Windows, the
operating system did not tell me what type of error was affecting
the drive, only that Windows could not access it.

I ran CMD, and in the DOS shell window, I used CHKDSK with the /f
switch. CHKDSK, reported that it could not attempt to scan the
drive because of a drive error and closed itself and returned me
to the DOS Shell window.

My question is, is anyone on this list, using a good disk repair
utility, which is accessible using JAWS
At present, I have no idea, as to whether the problem is with
the partition, its format or the problem is with the files which
hold the information about the data stored on the drive.

Any Suggestions please.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

Hi Tom, Bill told you the best way to get rid of for good. But another way that worked for me for individual devices was to press Jaws F10 to bring up a list of running applications. The Yes/No appears here and allows you to focus on it and click no to get rid of it for the device you are using with Winamp.

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?

Or with Winamp closed, delete pmp_usb.dll from the Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Plugins folder.

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

 

Thanks!

My guess would be you'd have to use OCR on it; and if it is hand writing, I have no idea what would work on Windows.

While it was not stated in the enhancements section, Microsoft Mail seems to
be working properly again. I've been able to scroll through the inbox and
open and read messages, without the app crashing.

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1907.31 (August 2019)

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the June
2019 update and the August 2019 update.
list of 14 items
. This update fixes an issue encountered by some users where JAWS was not
reading as expected in the Windows 10 Start menu. If you are experiencing
this problem, open JAWS Settings Center, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the
Default File, type "start" into the search edit box, and then toggle the
control called:
"Start menu: Access-Out-of-Process" so that it is checked.
. In response to customer feedback, JAWS sounds such as when INSERT+SPACEBAR
is pressed to enter Layered Keys mode are no longer muted when Speech On
Demand is active.
. Addressed an issue where the Text Analyzer keystrokes were not being found
when using the JAWS Commands Search feature (INSERT+SPACEBAR, J).
. When creating meeting requests using the Outlook calendar, resolved an
issue where new attendee information was not being reliably indicated in
either speech or braille.
. Resolved a reported issue where the keystrokes to read message headers in
Outlook, ALT+1 through 4 on the number row, were not working in Windows 7.
. Resolved an issue where returning to an open Outlook email after exiting a
Word Document would result in your cursor landing at the top of the email
rather than the previous location where you were reading.
. Resolved an issue in Microsoft Office where JAWS was not reporting if an
endnote or footnote had been inserted with speech even though Braille was
correctly identifying the information.
. Addressed an issue in Word 2016 reported by SSA where JAWS would repeat
the last line of the document after completing a Say All (INSERT+DOWN
ARROW).
. Addressed a reported issue where the spelling buzzer to indicate a
misspelled word was still being heard even when the "Detect spelling while
typing"
option in setting Center was disabled.
. In Microsoft Teams, resolved an issue where JAWS was speaking incoming
message and call notifications multiple times.
. When navigating by character in secure password fields in Chrome and
Firefox, resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "star" multiple times for
each character.
. Addressed a reported issue in Chrome where typing in contracted Braille
was not working as expected.
. Resolved a customer reported issue with SQL Server Management Studio where
JAWS was not properly navigating and reading a results Data grid.
. Resolved an issue reported by international Braille users where incorrect
Unicode characters were being entered using computer braille under certain
circumstances.
