The new drive did have a program for cloud storage on it, but no security program.  I did not get the drive back from my friend.

No it’s a little program that comes on the thumb drive itself most of the bigger thumb drive suppliers supply these little security programs on the drive. I always format the drive completely and get rid of all that stuff before I use it. Has nothing to do with windows. If you get a brand new flash drive put it in your USB port. And open it you’ll see an application and a couple files that come on the hard drive. And sometimes these can cause issues. Substitute thumb drive everywhere says hard drive. :-) I’m using dictation on my phone…

I don't know if this is happening, but is it possible for Windows 10 Security to be putting these files in quarantine as soon as the flash drive is plugged in?
 
How about if you zipped the folders up and sent them as an attachment in an email?

Are you using the built-in security app so come on those little drives? If I was you I would do a full format on the drive then copy the files. If it’s not the little security app on the drive. I’ve never seen this before and I don’t know what you can do.

Neither.  In fact, one of the drives used was brand new, because I first thought that the drive was corrupted.

The files are from a thumb drive.  Actually, two thumb drives were tried, the second one being brand new.

Be My Eyes makes accessible voting information available through its app

Tangela Mahaffey Sep 30, 2020 10:03 PM ET

 

Voting is important, in 2020 perhaps more so than ever. However, the ongoing COVID19 changes mean that this process looks different than it has in years past. Be My Eyes is making accessible voting information available by state in its app. See the text of the Be My Eyes email, and find out about some patriotic items available from the National Braille Press, below.

As blind and low-vision people, we are underestimated and underrepresented every day of our lives. Voting in an election is our chance to change that. We may only turn out a few million strong, but in an election, that can make a big difference.
That’s why, for the 2020 presidential election, Be My Eyes and Vote.org are teaming up – to make sure that for any American with a visual impairment, the process of registering and preparing to vote is as clear and accessible as possible.

Using Be My Eyes, you can check whether you are registered to vote, be guided through registering if you are not already, and receive information about voting by mail and COVID-19 guidelines specific to your state. According to Will Butler, president of Be my Eyes, "In a time where social distancing is still a huge part of daily lives for all Americans, it’s more important than ever that everyone has a way to access all necessary information, to make sure that they are motivated and confident about voting come November."

Inn order to access voting information and assistance, open the Be My Eyes app, enter the Specialized Help menu and select Vote.org from the list of available organizations in the “Civic Engagement” category. Vote.org volunteers will be open to take your calls through Be My Eyes Monday through Friday 12pm to 4pm ET.

Additionally, the National Braille press has begun to offer several braille and tactile items potentially of interest to voters across the nation. The Declaration of Independence and Constitution of the United States are available as a brf document or single volume braille book. You can receive 1 copy of these documents, in either downloadable braille file or physical braille book, free of charge, and can email the National Braille Press at orders@... to discuss the cost of receiving multiple copies.

The National Braille Press also provides a tactile American flag with the pledge of aleagance written in either contracted or uncontracted braille. The product discription reads,

Does your child or student know what the American flag looks like? Have they read the Pledge of Allegiance?
These brilliant, red, white, and blue flags from KBTI feature tactile stars and stripes. The tactile horizontal red stripes are labeled with the lower case "r" at the far right, and the white stripes are labeled with the lower case "w."
The Pledge of Allegiance is displayed in large print over the red and white stripes, in alternating black and white lettering, and is also written in braille over the red stripes. Immediately beneath the flag is a key in braille. Flags measure 7.5" x 9.5".

You can buy your tactile flag now for $5.00

moderated Word Press Accessibility Day October 2

Norma A. Boge
 

Hi group,

 

Although targeted to website developers, this event offers a rare insight into how developers approach accessibility and the tools they use. There are sessions regarding screen readers, and a visually impaired screen reader user and web developer will be speaking. From the point of view of most of us, these sessions might give us tips on how we can better communicate our needs to not only those who develop for WP but for any site.

This event is free and open to everyone, no registration required, just drop in as you like.

 

Here’s the link to the full schedule:

HTH,

Norma

IMO, an easier way is to tab to a name split button and press spacebar. now you should be returned to the list of files in reverse order.

Hi Stanley.

 

Go where the files are. Don’t select any of them. Press the applications key, or if you don’t have that, SHIFT+F10 should work. Go down to SORT, hit RIGHT ARROW to open this menu, then hit UP ARROW until you get to ascending. Hit ENTER, and your files will be in alphabetical order.

 

Hope this helps.

moderated List Rules - Thu, 10/01/2020 #cal-notice

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

List Rules

When:
Thursday, 1 October 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

Just as with Dropbox, once you signed into OneDrive with your Microsoft account allyou have do do is make sure all the files you want to sync are inside the OneDrive folder.

You do have to check OneDrive settings as by default it may keep content more in the cloud, but you can choose for everything to download so that a local copy is on your device.

I would like to start using Microsoft OneDrive so I can have the same files on my desktop computer and ElBraille computer.  Does anyone know where I can find tips on using OneDrive, or a tutorial?

 

I would like my files to be kept locally on each computer and constantly synchronized with OneDrive.  That way I could work on a file even if the internet is not available and it would synchronize and update when the internet became available.

 

Thank you for your help.

Hi again.

 

I’m usually not a violent person, but JAWS had be on the lookout tonight. Randy, you were right. I got the app from the Amazon site. I don’t have older versions of JAWS, but your thinking made me try Narrator on the problem. It worked great, and I now have Kindle up and running. Now I just need to try it out.

 

Thanks again for the help.

Did you download it from the Microsoft store or from Amazon? Sometimes universal apps i.e. MS store dont work with jaws or other screenreaders for that matter.

Try useing an earlier version of Jaws to see if it is Jaws 2020 or Kindle.

Hi.

 

I’ve called Amazon on this issue, and they’re stumped. I tried to install the Kindle app on this PC. It goes through the process of installing, then it disappears, and I’m back in the download folder. There’s a shortcut on the desktop, and when I try to use it, JAWS 2020 does report a list of 0 books, then I’m thrown right back on the desktop. I’ve checked both the sys tray and open programs, but it ain’t there. Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.
