Hi Tom,

If it is windows 10, go to settings.

Then go to apps and default apps.

You will find it there.

HTH.

Subject: Need To Set Winamp To Be Default Player For Audio And Video Files

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I’m having trouble setting Winamp to be my default player for audio and video files on my Windows 10 laptop.

 

I have several sets of instructions here, but they seem to be outdated, since I can’t get them to work.

 

I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2020.

 

Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

moderated loosing virtual cursor

john.falter
 

sometimes when I'm using I E 11, I lose the virtual cursor. Ctrl + F1 usually gets it back.
But CTRl + F1 doesn't get back the virtual cursor in Google chrome or in Edge.
How can I get back that virtual cursor in this case?

I think it's related to compatibility isues in Windows 10. We're many who use and like Winamp but it really needs an update to work better with win 10. Unfortanely we can't be sure that this update will ever come. Here I found out that Winamp works better if always run it as Administrator. You can set that on the shortcut. YOu can also chose to install in C:\Wianamp insted of C:\Prgam files (X86)@Winamp. Winamp needs access to some files that is denied if it's running in normal mode when it's placed in the Program Files (X86) folder. Unfortunately if you run Winamp as an Admistartor you'll always be prompted by the User Account Control when you start it. I don't use UAC so here it's no problem. I also read that some people need to associate the file types manually to Winamp to make it work but here it haven't been necessary to do so.

Brilliant, Adrian.

Jim,

The easiest way I know is the following:

Place focus at the filename in the folder where you have the file.

Copy with control-c.

Create the message you wish to send.

Place focus in the body of the message, and paste with control-v.

It’s counterintuitive, but the file will show up as an attachment, not as part of the message body.

I hope this works for you.

I strongly suspect windows 7 is your problem if everything else you are running is up to date.  Some things may still seem usable, but windows 7 needs to be put out to pasture.

Am I correct in saying that the file will be called g-mail address book, as it is in Outlook when I arrow up and down my various address books after shift-tabbing into the address book  list?

 

After I find the file, my next task will be trying to figure out what format the address book needs to be in for the Polaris note-taker.  I assume .csv, but will have to check the manual.

Hello, everyone.

              

I am trying to import my personal g-mail address book from Outlook 2019 and Office 365 into a Polaris Braille Note-taker.

 

Can someone tell me how I can find the file path to that specific address book?

 

My Outlook e-mail through Office 365 has multiple address books, since I also access my University e-mail account via the University’s exchange e-mail server.

 

I can get to the list of my address books in Outlook via the shift-tab and arrow keys, but that does not tell me the specific file path location for the specific address book I’m looking for.

 

I have asked the Microsoft Accessibility folks to help me locate and export this address book, but they never seemed to come up with the right one.  Plus, whatever they came up with was a very messy file once I saved it into a .csv file.

 

Any help with this dilemma would be appreciated.

moderated JAWS Error Message "The FS default scripts were not found while loading scripts ... ." Happening at Start After Tweaking Scripts

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

 

I made a very minor tweak to the default JAWS 2020 script file.  After that tweak, I get an error message when JAWS starts.  The error message says something like “The Freedom Scientific default script file could not be found when loading scripts.  This may cause problems.  It is recommended that these default scripts be found.”

 

The tweak to the default script file I made was simply to add at the very end of it an assignment of my “PrintScreen” key to the “ApplicationsKey” (shift+f10).  I do not think there is an error in my script.  I have done  it in earlier versions of JAWS (e.g., 2019) without this problem.

 

So, why is this happening?  How can I fix it?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hi okay here is one more way to attach a document.

1.       Go to documents first select the document and clip to clip board.

2.       You then go to outlook if that is where you are emailing from. You to this to get the attachment in. You paste it in. it will start the new email and you then can add email address.

3.       You then can go to subject line and the name of the document is there. I will share what I do then. I hit the end key of line and back over doc. And then tab once and you will see the document is there then tab and write your message and send.

I hope this helps all if you have question please ask.

 

I do this I find it faster over all.

Jim, in case Jessica’s reply wasn’t enough to remind you, she means just go to whatever file you want to attach using File Explorer, copy it to the clipboard with Control + C, then go to Outlook and start your message, put in the recipient and subject and once you are in the message body field use Control + V to paste, this will attach the file as a proper attachment. You can then write your message and send. Of course you can first address the email, fill in the subject and write what you want to write and use the steps above last to attach your file, only thing to remember is that you have to be in the message body field when you press Control + V to paste in your file, it will not work to attach it if you are in the subject or any other header field.

Hi Jim, to attach a file to an email message, I press Alt and then hit your right arrow once until you hear the word Insert. Then press the tab key once and you’ll hear Attach file. Press the Enter key and then I believe you can press the Tab key to navigate to find your file you want?

 

I hope this helps.

Oh I meant that the copy and paste method worked. In Outlook menus I do not find any insert option. So I am apparently confused. LOL!

Ok, I open the menus, select “Insert” and then down arrow places me in “Attach file” option and there are others if so desired.  I use this fairly often to get to recent documents and I can go anywhere in the Explorer tree to grab an item.

Glad it worked

OH, I just tried it again and it worked just fine. I thought I did it exactly the same the first time, but must have done something wrong.

You can also do insert and attach file from Outlook menu.  This places the attachment on its own line above the message.

Jim, in case Jessica’s reply wasn’t enough to remind you, she means just go to whatever file you want to attach using File Explorer, copy it to the clipboard with Control + C, then go to Outlook and start your message, put in the recipient and subject and once you are in the message body field use Control + V to paste, this will attach the file as a proper attachment. You can then write your message and send. Of course you can first address the email, fill in the subject and write what you want to write and use the steps above last to attach your file, only thing to remember is that you have to be in the message body field when you press Control + V to paste in your file, it will not work to attach it if you are in the subject or any other header field.

Hi,

I typically just use copy/paste.

I hope this helps.

 

Regards,

Jessica
