Van Lant, Robin
 

I think that happened to me last week and I gave up on trying to defer it and just went to the update and shut down option in the start menu.

Subject: windows 10 update?

 

I came back to my computer a little while ago to find a screen saying my windows 10 needed to be updated. It gave me three options: set a time, remind me later, restart now. The strange thing is that none of the options worked. Nothing happened. Had to shut down the computer to be rid of the screen.

 

I am running W10 with automatic updates on. Also running J2020 June update.

 

What is hapeenin?

Wrong,

Microsoft won't do that for anyone, and in fact, they cannot because nobody can without a crack software program and Microsoft would obviously not want this software to be used.

There are a couple of them on the talking WinPE disk.

You can't get the password, but you can change them, and then reboot and log in with the new password.

My suggestion would be to give Microsoft accessibility help desk a call.  They are very helpful, and they have the ability to set up a remote session on to the computer and help you out.  and besides Microsoft would know the answers to how to get into the admin account etc.

 

Have a good day.

Hello everyone:

 

One of my friends, whose wife recently died,had a computer with 2 accounts set up in windows 10. I have 2 questions regarding this computer:

 

Question 1. The other day, I helped my friend turn off the welcome screen for the administrator account for that computer. I used the n e t p l w i z utility to do this. When my friend next turned on the computer, he was presented with a log on screen, presumably, the password edit field , for the other account in Windows 10.

 

How would my friend , access the administrator account which bypasses the log on screen for the administrator account.

 

Question 2. My friend does not know the password for the other account in Windows 10. What program can I use, in a windows Pre-installation Environment to change the password?

 

Thank you for any suggestions and help.

Winpe is made by Microsoft, it is a working copy of Windows, and the PE is short for pre-install environment.
It is designed to be customizable, so although you are booting into a copy of Windows, it is not your windows, yet you can access your windows on the C: drive.
This is made by Microsoft to either install windows or repair windows.
It comes up talking with NVDA and has approximately 25 utilities installed, these are not Microsoft utilities, they are third-party utilities.

Holding google to the same standards as apple in the accessibility regard is

releases 2 phones in a year - google is far different. Android is an

Android is simply what can be done under the hood and otherwise. Samsung,
Motorola (or moto), Google's own Pixel lineup, OnePlus, Asus, ZTE, Sony, LG,
and many other brands are very much accessible and useable these days, and
as mentioned below, do take the time to make sure that you can indeed get
accessibility to run and are able to navigate the device. Motorola and LG
are very stock Android - just like the Pixel. Samsung does make small
changes, but they don't impact accessibility and I'd argue that having their
own voice assistant does add yet one more screen reader to the mix, which is
helpful. With Android, it's really what you want from the hardware. Do you
want stereo speakers? A good camera? A huge, gigantic battery AKA Moto g 7
power with its 5000 mAH? You can pick and choose based on the hardware
specifications and your price point and aren't restricted to what apple
throws at you.
I'm really hoping this newest leak regarding the iPhone 12 not coming with a

who actually provides a $1000 plus device then has the gall to charge their
customers extra to keep it charged? Even the moto e and g series, phones
that are $150, give you a quick charge adapter that charges from 0-50% in 30
minutes.

Braille Back is not very well developed and is another separate program. The
last time I used it crashed regularly. Also you didn't get the same feature
set as TalkBack. It should be in TalkBack, not a different program. Braille
Support on Mobile is nothing special. Basically all which happens is what is
spoken is what is shown on the braille display. Nothing has been done to
help the Braille Real Estate in abbreviation of commonly roles and etc which
is done in the windows screen readers. Such as Btn for button.

A comment was made that Samsung model phones 6 and higher, accessibility
improved. But lower models are very hit and miss for accessibility. This is
an argument for using Apple. As all their models are accessible. Google
should have made some form of policy to make any modifications by a mobile
phone vendor the changes are accessible and do not impact Googles OS and
accessibility framework. Hence any changes to the OS does not impact
accessibility features. If this was done, then all phones in theory would be
accessible.


The story end is to use the phone you like. All these discussion points
might help you with your decisions. Take the emotion out of the decision and
test the phones. The support you get when testing a phone will be a big
player. If the mobile store will not allow you to install or use the
accessibility feature speaks volumes.

Hi,


so long as BRLTTY supports it, chances are it will work. There are options
to try more generic drivers is a specific model does not connect or
whatever, so no idea what display will work.

I would assume most will by now. You can always contact the authors ot ask
if they'll include a display driver and model.

I am planning on giving my Actilino the BRLTTY treatment. By the way,
Brailleback is based on BRLTTY anyway.

I would actually recommend trying the SFC/DISM instructions before considering rolling back a recently installed update, as using those utilities will not prevent you from rolling back a recent update if they do not fix the issue.

Hank William Merchant
 

Hello fellow listers,
 
I am running Win10 with jfw18. This problem just startaed happening in the past 4 or 5 days in my win10 when I try to paste into a new folder some copied files from another folder.
 
The problem is when I try to do this, copy some files that were copied successfully from one folder and then try to paste these copied files into a new folder I get the error message “error, interrupted action” and I cannot successfully paste these copied files into the new folder and i only have the option to try again and when i try again to paste these copied files i keep geting the same error message “error interrupted action”. I am really stumped as to what could be causing this problem in my win10. Does anyone maybe have any ideas on how I can maybe fix this unable to paste problem when I try to paste copied files into a new folder in win10 that just startaed happening about 5 days ago? Any help I can maybe get with this would be so very much appreciated. much, much thanks in advance for any possible help with this.
 
 
 
 
 
 
All the best,
Kindest regards,
 
Hank

Is that notification in the Action Center?

I have often had these sorts of notifications remain in the Action Center even if the computer restarted itself outside of active hours for a cumulative update.  And when that's the case, the notification won't "do" anything since what needs to be done already occurred.  I wish they'd just automatically purge that sort of notification on restart when automatic restart outside active hours has occurred.

I use the portable version of QRead and have it placed in my Google Drive folder so I can have synchronicity across my computers. The only thing QRead really doesn’t do and would be very helpful is to highlight or make notes. This is especially lacking for nonfiction stuff where you’re trying to learn something. If there’s a program that does this, I’d like to know. I believe Kindle supports note taking and highlighting, but I don’t think those features are available when using Jaws. That and at least for me, I don’t want to be locked into the Amazon ecosystem.

All in all, I’m happy with QRead, but the developer’s pretty much abandoned it so if it were to ever brick, that’ll be that then. Not saying it will any time soon, but just something to keep in mind..

If you are seeking for an accessible EPub reader. QRead and Dolphin Easy reader are two programs which are specifically design for Vision Impaired. Dolphin easy Reader is a better program in my for EPub readers.
There is another one which is main stream which I don’t have the name at hand.

Hi again, Richard and list. I finally found Speak On, but it is not a text to speech app, it is a translation app.

What David meant was that the app, speak On is free.

I think it is a Windows program.

There are a number of options.

Q Read - which is a paid application provides epub , PdF and mobi book support. .

There are a number of Text to Speech based readers. Paid and unpaid.. For me the best by far is  the free Speak On which has a range of excellent features for ePub reading in its confusingly  named  Text Publications app.

 This has  as  well as text ,  ePub support, including book marking , navigation levels, header and chapter navigation, on the fly control of book reading speed  and   volume and  including a range of other features. You can even create  a “virtual eBook” based on a search term which will pull out all the relevant sections of an ebook which is very useful for academic study. There is also full capacity to export to text to a word processor by simple copy and paste.
