moderated Thunderbird 68.

Chris Hill
 

This version won't automatically download as of right now, but may in future.  It didn't seem to be as accessible as the old version at first.  I tried messing around with window classes and stuff to make the folder list read, but that didn't help.  I finally changed to vertical view in the view/layout options, and all started behaving normally.  I think that is what fixed it, but I can't be absolutely certain.


If anyone wants to try the program, they can download it, but they should back up their profile folder before they install just in case they can't deal with it and need to go back to Thunderbird 60.


Good luck.

Thanks.  Looks like I'm going to have an interesting morning. I've tried a few different options, but I still can't make the folder list speak when arrowing through it.  This may need someone who knows more than I do.

In Window-eyes there used to be a way to attempt to reclass a control if it wasn't behaving properly.  Is there any way to do this with jaws? I'm trying out the new thunderbird 68 and the folders list doesn't seem to read anymore.  I'd like to fix it.

Daniel Wolak
 

Hi all,

I'm just wondering if there are any scripts ETC that have been developed
for use with jaws and the popular VLC media player? I'm coming back to
jaws after several years away, from a screenreader that has a great many
community addons, one of which is for vlc so am just wondering if we
have any scripts for use with this program?

Thanks much,


Daniel

It largely depends on what you are doing which wil determine the performance impact e.g. if it is a lot of network work, a faster processor won’t necessarily make a huge amount of difference.

If it is a lot of disk IO, an SSD over a traditional drive is likely to make a better performance improvement than a faster processor.

My Dell Aurora R3 from 2010 with a 4th gen I7 running at 4.0GHz with 16GB ram and a SSD is just as fast and capable as my new 8th gen I5 dell XPS with the same specs.

I have 2 other dell laptops and they are over 10 years old now. They are slow and I dont use them anymore but they are still working.

My point is high end PCs from several years ago are still just as capable as ever...

Hello all:
Tyler, thank you for the insight. I mainly use Microsoft office suite, and browse the web with this unit. I’m looking on dell.com. I’m looking at a I seven 512 solid-state drive with 16 gig of RAM. And a plain graphics card. That retails for $1200. I’m not looking to spend more than that, and it states it’s a gaming computer. If the unit specs will last me around six years plus I would be very happy with that.

Unless he has some software that is requiring it, which would be surprising.

Hi,

I believe there was a way to change this through Settings, but I only can find how I did it manually quite a while back, so I don't know if his will work for you.

If you go to the address bar by hitting F6, erase everything after the outlook.office365.com/owa/?, and then after the question mark, enter layout=light. That did it for me a while back. I can't remember if it is a permanent fix, though. I have been using chrome for outlook on the web lately, and it has the easier layout, at least for now (fingers crossed).

I hope this works for you. The other interface is really annoying.

I don't know about word, but the past version of 365 web outlook had a checkbox in settings that changed the format to the "light version" that was very Jaws friendly . With the latest update, I don't see how to switch to a jaws friendly format any more. I did a web search and still could not find an answer. marla

Hi Brian and All.

Sorry, buti am just getting to this message now, and I think the topic has basicallyb een closed, but I didn’t want to not convey at least some understanding of Brian’s excellent explanation.

I’ve never seen a thing in my life and am a braille user, but I do understand the “unbridgable gulf” mentioned here pretty well anyway, at least in theory. Though I couldn’t really tell you what most specific fonts actually look like in practice, typography is certainly interesting, and I’ve worked with a few different ones in my time for different purposes. This is something a braille reader just has to accept as part of the print experience we will never really and truly have an equivalent for, but, just like cinematography in film, it’s a very interesting “science” that it’s useful to know some things about.

But when you read a book in print, you don’t (usually) see two spaces after a period, correct?

That depends, at least from a "how it looks" perspective, on the type used.  It certainly appears that either some use a 2-space convention or the type itself has a somewhat wider space.

When it comes to proportional fonts some "compress" a space far more than others do, but all compress it in comparison to "wide" letters like M and W, for instance.

I wish there were a way to convey this in a truly meaningful way for those that cannot see.   The differences between fonts, in many respects, that are all proportional fonts can be radical.   For those here who may have once been able to see, think about the difference between how a True Type font such as Vivaldi or Palace Script look when compared with Times New Roman.   Even though both can be read with relative ease, when the content is short, try to imagine reading an entire book in one of the first two script fonts as opposed to Times New Roman.  I'd be exhausted by the end of the first page, because letter form matters, and matters a lot, when ease of visual scanning and processing are involved.   There are an awful lot of fonts that were developed to be "visually interesting" for things like posters, invitations, and the like but are not ever intended to be used for article or book length material for publication and reading by the masses.   Any of these being machine read, or converted for Braille displays, are exactly the same in those contexts.   There's a gulf that cannot be fully bridged due to sensory modalities at play and the fact that, in the case of Braille, the whole idea of font as I experience it is absent.

A tech told me anything over 8 Gigs of ram is too much.  I think he was  

dipping into some sort of sauce.  I received what I was told was a  

refurbished Win 10 computer with 250 Gs hard drive.  It turned out to

be a  windows 7 originally and you could make dinner by the time it booted

up.

Thus, I agree with Feliciano.

I suggest you upgrade to a 512 GB solid-state drive.

Hello all.

Looking to purchase a new dell laptop computer. Here are the specs:

I9 processor

16 GB ram

256 GB SSD

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060

 

I would like this computer to last me about six years. Are all of

these

specs acceptable for running JFW? Is there anything else that I should

make certain a new laptop has for JFW use?

Appreciate any advise.

 

Thank you-

Andrew

Try moving focus away from the control or the video player.

did you delete all folders for jaws, including the ones in program folders, program folder  x86 and app data?

Hi all,
After seeing some posts about Winaero Tweaker, I downloaded, installed and tweaked my system with it. Everything appeared to be going swimmingly after a reboot, except that JAWS would crash and close each time I ran Google Chrome or the new Edge. I was also having trouble finding the start menu search box using JAWS, but not with NVDA, Window-eyes or Narrator. So, I repaired JAWS, to no avail. I then uninstalled JAWS through add/remove programs; again, to no avail.

Finally, I used the Microsoft Program Installer troubleshooting app to uninstall each and every Freedom Scientific component. But now, when I attempt to reinstall JAWS, I only get a repair option. I've gone through the registry and deleted all references to Freedom Scientific and JAWS. But each time I try to rerun the JAWS installer, I only get a repair option, an error and a close button. How the heck can JAWS want to repair itself if it's not installed anywhere on my system? Furthermore what can I do? I would really hate to reinstall Windows over this.
Many thanks,
