I used this new version of picture smart on a graphic from my web site.  The first description was good, but just said there was a bird.

When I used the more results link this is what I got:

Caption is a view of a mountain.

This text appears in the photo

This object appears in the photo

Eagle.

These tags describe the photo

Accipitriformes, Bird, Bird of prey, Eagle, mountain, Nature, sky.

These tags probably describe the photo

Accipitridae, Adaptation, Natural landscape, Wilderness.

These tags possibly describe the photo

lake, text.

 

It is an image of an eagle lying over a mountain lake, so quite a good analysis.

Hi,

 

If you are running any anti-virus software on your computer, I have found that you need to turn the anti-virus off for the executable installation to happen over a USB connection. Documentation from Freedom Scientific does not make any mention that anti-virus software may block the installation.

Marlo,

If you try installing a Focus Blue firmware update for an older disp(the 4th Generation), for example, it might not work. Freedom Scientific says not to, so which display are you using? That is, the generation of display(5th or 4th). Also, I never have to quit my Norton Antivirus before installation. You might want to talk the problem out with FSLayy

Hi all,


the subject pretty much says it all.


I had a ton of favourites saved in a folder that had been previously imported from Firefox. Out of a habit, I saved every link in that particular folder, since it contained most of my everyday links.

I am so frustrated now!

Edge gave me its usual "Hello, welcome, and let's start to make your life better" screen where I was presented with various customisation options, and I closed out of that dialogue since I had previously gone through the entire process.

Also from my first launch of Edge on after the update, all the instructions were in English.


Now, I don't want to hear anything about backups, incremental this, and possible future strategies.

I just want to know if there's a way of retrieving my favourites that Microsoft nuked in the update process??

A file, folder, registry entry, whatever, where my old favourites might be stored?


I tried contacting MS through their disability helpline using Be My Eyes to no avail, since something is either wrong with the app or on their end.

Calling in directly isn't really possible unless I want to spend a ton of money on an international call.


Any thoughts?

Nermin

In Zoom, I unchecked “adjust your microphone volume automatically” box, and did a test Zoom meeting with my wife.

 

All sounded good, so I’m hoping the problem is now solved.

 

One thing I couldn’t find was a button for saving my settings, so I hope the setting will stick.

 

At least I know where to find it now if it doesn’t.

Hi there.  In zoom, you can adjust your settings thus. Press tab until you hear setting button, wack enter or, press the space bar to activate, arrow down to audio, tab until you hear adjust your microphone volume automatically, uncheck this box. Your microphone audio issue should then be resolved.

Subject: Strange Zoom Volume Issue

 

Hello, everyone.

 

Recently, I have been doing some online teaching via Zoom, and have noticed a very strange issue with my microphone volume.

 

For these meetings, I use a headset with an attached microphone.  I have experienced this issue with two different headsets.  Both headsets are connected via a USB port.

 

My issue is that when I’m teaching, my microphone suddenly looses volume for no apparent reason.

 

I can’t identify a consistent pattern to these failures, but I’m told my volume suddenly disappears to the point that my audio is unintelligible.

 

Has anyone else had this issue in Zoom meetings, and if so, how did you solve it?

 

Is there something I can do to keep my volume levels more stable?

 

I’m using Jaws 2021 here on a Windows 10 PC.  I also put Jaws in Speech On Demand mode as I’m conducting my classes, because they involve screen sharing, and I want to minimize Jaws speech when I’m navigating the screen.  Fortunately, I have a HIMS Polaris Notetaker that I can use as a Braille display.

 

Thanks for any help!

Assuming Outlook 2019 has the same layout as 2016, try using Control Tab to cycle through the inbox, the quick navigation and the folder pane.  I think F6 and Shift F6 also works.  In either case, be sure that the Folder pane is set to Normal.  Hit Alt then V then F to open the menu and see that the option is set to Normal.

Well, I’m getting a bit confused myself. It seems that I do get different results with CTRL1 or 2. As I look at my version of Slack, Slack Version 4.11.2, I feel like Slack works differently.

I’m finding that the long list of keystrokes, (CTRL+/, have no consistency. I’m determined to learn Slack since it appears that now, everyone insists in using this very ugly product.

Are there Slack users? I’ve bee looking for some kind of Slack  accessibility list but what used to be available is no longer valid.

Slack was putting JAWS into application mode regularly, and I'd press the + key to get back into virtual PC mode. This allowed me to navigate by regions fairly well.
I've installed JAWS 2021 and now notice I can't get out of application mode in Slack.  The same is true for JAWS 2020.
The only major change I'm aware of is that I installed JAWS 2021.

Any ideas on what might be going on?

Hi All,

 

I was contacted by a professor about a new course I am beginning using Zoom. He wants me to be able to access google slides and be able to edit within the slides.

 

I do have a gmail account.

 

I have found some information on google documents but not google slides.

 

If anyone has any suggestions of resources to help me learn this, that would be great as I have never used the google suite and have my gmail set up to use in outlook.

I am a person who is totally blind, using JAWS 2020 and Windows 10.

 

I plan to have Zoom open on one device and resources such as google slides and the workbook and texts on a separate laptop with earbud for that computer tucked in my headset and microphone that is connected to the laptop I am using for Zoom.

Thank-you for any advice.

Respectfully yours,

If you delete that folder, you will delete all settings for all Jaws

Under %appdata%\freedom scientific and open the Jaws folder, you will find
subfolders for each version of jaws that is installed.

I don't know exactly what deleting that folder will do for you, but just
pointing out that there are more versions of Jaws in there you may want to
be aware of.
