That’s probably a recovery partition. I don’t know why you would be getting an alert on it though. Yes, it’s probably going to be nearly full but it was too begin with.

This might not be the correct place to ask this but I have an old laptop, windows 7 ie11, and it has a drive on it called drive D.  I have tried and tried to defrag and clean it up as it is 99 per cent full and a low volume left announcement comes up about every fifteen minutes.  I try to clean it up and compress it but it says I can retrieve 0 space.  What setting is it on that I can not fix this?  Is there a way that I can stop the question from being spoken?  What is on drive D usually?  I am using jaws 2020.2 something, whatever last week’s update to 2020 was.  Can anyone help me with some ideas?  I am an ordinary computer user, no programming skills, this is my personal computer, nothing for work.

Go into speech and sound schemes, spacebar the, modify option, navigate to the scheme, choose the, Edit option, now check to make sure the attribute changes were made.  Did you remember to save the changes after you modified the scheme?

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi,

 

I created a new speech and sound scheme to better identify revisions  in MS Word (based on the power tip on the most recent FS podcast), but when I activated the speech and sound scheme, it doesn’t seem to be reading the attributes I reflected in the newly-created scheme. Wondering if folks may have ideas as to how I can troubleshoot ?

 

Thanks

Hi Norma,

Yes. I get the same behaviour and use the same workaround.

I wonder if this is a hangover from Google Chrome scripts now that Edge is chromium based as shift+f6 is the correct keystroke in that browser.

I also think iOS is just more intuitive and even after all these years when both platforms have matured, iOS is in my view more polished and easier to use.

There is a load of material about iOS and iPhones out there, www.Applevis.com is just one example, Apple has an accessibility support line as well as email address and if you call their support and need help they can even connect to your phone and see what you are doing.

There are email lists for both Android and iOS, the Viphone list is one I have been on for the last 10 years or so since I started using an iPhone.

If you really want to use a keyboard you can actually get Apple's camera connection cable and use it to connect a USB keyboard, but in my opinion a Bluetooth keyboard makes much more sense with a mobile device and there are lots of great options out there from Logitech as well as others.

As for price any high-end Android phone nowadays costs just as much as the high-end iPhones, yes, you can probably pick up a cheap Android phone for $200 or so, but then again the new iPhone SE 2 which was recently released also is not that expensive and from all I heard on the Viphone list as well as in general it's fantastic phone.

I guess it all depends on what you plan to do with the phone, for me being able to transfer information from my PC to the phone by copying and pasting is not very important, I have an Apple Music subscription so I never store mucis on the device any more, I do just about all my audio book listening on Audible and the odd book I have in MP3 I can easily transfer to Voice Dream Reader via Dropbox.

I consider to be a pretty profficient user of my iPhone, but I absolutely don't believe in being able to replace a computer with my iPhone, I don't compose long texts on my phone, if I have to type a longer email or want to have an on-going text chat on Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp or other app I do use my Bluetooth keyboard. I have a Logitech K780 which I use via its USB dongle as my primary keyboard for my laptop and if I want to use it wih my iPhone all I have to do is press FN+F2 and it switches over, when I'm done I press F1 and I'm back on my PC.

With Android, you can get a USB adapter and plug in a desktop keyboard or anything USB, you can't do that with IOS.

Hi. A free version of Dictation Bridge is also available for JAWS.

Hartgen Consultancy has two solutions for using JAWS with Dragon. J-Dictate is for people who want to use Dragon for dictation into programs such as Word, Outlook, etc., who are comfortable or able to use their computer keyboard.

J-Say not only allows for voice dictation but it allows a user to completely control their computer with all commands, both for Windows as well as for JAWS. The programs from Hartgen Consultancy are specific to JAWS whereas Dictation Bridge has a separate addon for NVDA.

Hi,

 

The equivalent book for Android is called Getting Started with Android by Ana Garza.  An e-book version is available for purchase from the National Braille Press.

 

It’s a bit dated but still well worth it for new users as Android fundamentals haven’t changed significantly.

I use both an Android phone with Talkback and an iPhone with voice over! It was just as hard to learn Voiceover as it was to learn Talkback. Also Android 11, which will come out in the fall, will have a lot of the same multi-finger gestures as Voiceover. Android is better because you can use third party apps instead of using just what Apple will let you use. You can customize your Android phone much more, and what do you know, Ios 14 is adding the app drawer just like android. IOS 14 is taking from Android and Google. What range of phone are you using? please join the ANATAD list. It standds for Android apps news talk and deals.

Hi. A free version of Dictation Bridge is also available for JAWS.

Hartgen Consultancy has two solutions for using JAWS with Dragon. J-Dictate is for people who want to use Dragon for dictation into programs such as Word, Outlook, etc., who are comfortable or able to use their computer keyboard.

J-Say not only allows for voice dictation but it allows a user to completely control their computer with all commands, both for Windows as well as for JAWS. The programs from Hartgen Consultancy are specific to JAWS whereas Dictation Bridge has a separate addon for NVDA.

Hi, Deb. You will probably need to transfer some of the data that is on Drive D to another drive before you can defrag or clean it up. What types of files do you see when you open the drive, before the announcement comes up?

This might not be the correct place to ask this but I have an old laptop, windows 7 ie11, and it has a drive on it called drive D.  I have tried and tried to defrag and clean it up as it is 99 per cent full and a low volume left announcement comes up about every fifteen minutes.  I try to clean it up and compress it but it says I can retrieve 0 space.  What setting is it on that I can not fix this?  Is there a way that I can stop the question from being spoken?  What is on drive D usually?  I am using jaws 2020.2 something, whatever last week’s update to 2020 was.  Can anyone help me with some ideas?  I am an ordinary computer user, no programming skills, this is my personal computer, nothing for work.

Which is the best free accessible software to convert mp4 audio files in to mp3 or wav files. 

 

2nd question: Is there a software that strips mp4 audio from a video mp4 file that converts them to either .wav or mp3?

 

Thanks.
