Hi,

 

I’m trying to make a settings export, but the wizard keeps crashing.

 

When I spke to FS tech support about it, they couldn’t duplicate it, and told me to copy a certain file from the user area.

 

What file would they be referring to?

 

Thanks,

moderated List Rules - Wed, 07/01/2020 #cal-notice

main@jfw.groups.io Calendar <noreply@...>
 

List Rules

When:
Wednesday, 1 July 2020
12:00am to 1:00am
(GMT-04:00) America/New York

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin

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.

Yes I agree – I have sometimes had to navigate inaccessible dialogues this way.

The only thing is that after clicking on a control with the virtual mouse as you describe you then have to re-perform the OCR to locate the next inaccessible control as the screen would then have updated. This can make it all a tedious process but it is better to have this option than not.

Hi, Richard. What Glenn says is not true. Often, when I am on a webpage, and I am using JAWS OCR, (INSERT plus SPACE, followed by the letter C for Controls, often controls that are not accessible with JAWS normally are shown. Then, I use the Left Mouse key on the keyboard. If JAWS is in Desktop layout mode, the Left Mouse key is the slash key on the Keypad, not the numbers row below the function keys. If in Laptop keyboard layout, the Left Mouse key is Capslock plus the eight key below the Function keys. This way, I can often click a button or control on a webpage.

When you do OCR with Jaws, it is just text, not active content like on a web page.

So you cannot, it's just a text copy.

Hi Bill,
These are OCR controls, I take it that is not what was meant.  The OCR controls are one thing, but if one does OCR of something, that is text, so you might hear it refer to a button, but it is not really a button in the OCR text.

Hi, Glenn. Here is what JAWS help says about the OCR layer of the INSERT plus SPACE BAR, followed by O commands,

 

The following commands are available in the OCR layer.
Acquire and OCR a print document from a Scanner or Freedom Scientific Camera such as PEARL, using the letter A.
OCR a scanned PDF Document opened in Acrobat Reader using the letter D.
From Windows Explorer, you can OCR any Image File using the letter F.
From the computer screen itself, you can OCR a Control with C, Window with W, or the entire Screen with S.

You can press Q to quit or cancel an OCR job.

 

Note:

 

From the computer screen itself, you can OCR a Control with C, Window with W, or the entire Screen with S.

There would be no point of OCR ing a control if there were no way of interacting with the control which was OCR'ed.

When you do OCR with Jaws, it is just text, not active content like on a web page.

So you cannot, it's just a text copy.

HTH.

Hi,

 

Hope this isn’t a stupid question but wondering how I would click on a button when using Jaws OCR to read content in an application?

 

Thanks

Bill, If you are using the Jaws cursor, you have navigated outside the OCR window, and onto the web page.
That is why it works for you.

Hi, Richard. What Glenn says is not true. Often, when I am on a webpage, and I am using JAWS OCR, (INSERT plus SPACE, followed by the letter C for Controls, often controls that are not accessible with JAWS normally are shown. Then, I use the Left Mouse key on the keyboard. If JAWS is in Desktop layout mode, the Left Mouse key is the slash key on the Keypad, not the numbers row below the function keys. If in Laptop keyboard layout, the Left Mouse key is Capslock plus the eight key below the Function keys. This way, I can often click a button or control on a webpage.

Hi, Glenn. Here is what JAWS help says about the OCR layer of the INSERT plus SPACE BAR, followed by O commands,

 

The following commands are available in the OCR layer.
Acquire and OCR a print document from a Scanner or Freedom Scientific Camera such as PEARL, using the letter A.
OCR a scanned PDF Document opened in Acrobat Reader using the letter D.
From Windows Explorer, you can OCR any Image File using the letter F.
From the computer screen itself, you can OCR a Control with C, Window with W, or the entire Screen with S.

You can press Q to quit or cancel an OCR job.

 

Note:

 

From the computer screen itself, you can OCR a Control with C, Window with W, or the entire Screen with S.

There would be no point of OCR ing a control if there were no way of interacting with the control which was OCR'ed.
