Hello there;


Subject:
 want some audio in your safe mode?

for all the techies who havent heard about this yet.
audio in safe mode, download the keys from the sendspace link at the
bottom


Instructions

while in safe mode I use NVDA as the screen reader, then dont need to
install the video driver.

how to use the keys
if windows can boot ok & windows is running
then just press enter on the key, activate sound in safe mode.reg
you need to say yes & this will add keys to the safe boot tree in the
registry that will enable the audio service to startup
now you can boot into safe mode using the following 2 methods
1.
press windows r to open the run box
in the run box type, msconfig & press enter
the system configuration window will open
either shift tab once to get up into the tabs & use the right arrow,
or use control tab & find the boot tab
its called the Boot tab in windows 7, boot.ini tab in xp
once on the boot tab, start tabbing through the options & you will find
boot option Safe boot, you need to check this
then tab once more & you will find radio buttons
use the arrow keys to choose either minimal or network
if you are trouble shooting a connection issue & you want network
support, then choos network
note, if you choose network, while you are connected to the internet
you have no securety running.
if you dont want network support, then choos mimimal
now just tab to the ok button & hit the space bar.
on xp you will get a window saying need to restart, on windows 7 you
will not recieve this & need to restart the system yourself.
while booting up, if you have user accounts setup, it will hang on
this screen & wait for you to choos a user & put in the password
On xp when the system boots into safe mode you will here the windows
log on sound & then you will hear a ding sound,
the ding is a window stating you are in safe mode, just press enter to
say
ok.
You will not get this ding sound in windows 7.
dont forget things in safe mode are a lot slower, so wait a while for
the desktop & so on to load before you try to start NVDA
In xp when you get NVDA running you may find a system configuration
window saying, is in selective mode & so on, I normally tab to never
show this again & check it, then tab to ok
Once you are finished doing what you want to in safe mode, you need
to go back into msconfig into the boot tab & uncheck boot into safe
mode.
If you dont do this, you will just keep starting up in safe mode.

2. reboot & after the bios screen hit f8, once the options come up,
choose safe mode or safe mode with networking.

how to use the keys If windows is broken & wont boot up normally
boot into safe mode
plug in a USB stick, I have named mine zebra, so all I do is open
computer, by pressing windows e, & press z, this then lands me on my
stick
then go into the stick & I press, A to land on activate sound with
safe mode.reg
then hit enter on it, then hit enter again to say yes, and the keys are
set.
then you need to reboot back into safe mode for the audio service to
start
up.

If the onboard audio doesn't startup, then you will need to use a USB
headset.

It works great & it's a real help when trouble shooting issues.

There was a post, I think it was on this list, a while back that gave
instructions for a registry hack that would allow a USB headset to work with

a screen reader in safe mode. I didn't try it since I didn't know just how
safe Safe Mode would be afterwards. A Google search containing the words
"sound Safe Mode" might turn up some information.

Hello there;

Apparently there is a registry entry you can use;
Activate Sound in SafeMode.reg
However I'm not sure of the instructions,
Also, I think you would need to use NVDA, however not totally certain.

writing to copytrans manager support

Rob <musicmaker365@...>
 

Dear List,
I am writing to ask you to help me contact Copytrans support to let them know we are interested in using Copytrans Manager to manage our iPhone, iPod and iPads without using iTunes.
I used a few basic scripts to use the program with windows XP, but it seems a little different under windows 7.
this is a wonderful program and would be great if no scripts were needed.
listen to my demo for a better understanding of what copytrans manager can do:
please note that since I made this demo, they have now made copytrans drivers.
so there is no need to install iTunes.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3387062/CopyTransManagerdemo.mp3
download the drivers:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3387062/CopyTransDriversInstaller%20v1.013.exe
download the program:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3387062/CopyTransManager.exe
if you have questions, email me
musicmaker365@gmail.com
Below is a copy of the letter I emailed to Copytrans,
---
Dear Copytrans,
I am a vision impaired user of copytrans manager.
I love your program.
bbut there are a few problems that I hope you can help the blind community with.
First, being blind, it is very hard, mostly impossible to find and click graphics in your program such as the following:
select iPod
Eject
Save changes
add tracks....
Is there a way that you could put these items in a menu or , and add hotkeys for them?
another thing I noticed is that most screen readers that the blind uses does not read the items such as the tracks in the playlists, or the playlists suchas Applications, voice memos....
I use a screen reader called Jaws For Windows.
I was able to tweak it to be able to allow it to read the track lists and playlists.
But other blind users using other screen readers such as Window Eyes, or NVDA, can not use your program at all.
it seems as you may not be using standard windows colors or navigation.
I may be wording it wrong, but I hope you get what I'm trying to say.
Again I want to thank you for creating this wonderful program
We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks,
Rob

Download either 32-bit, or 64-bit versions of the Microsoft Security
Essentials anti-virus program at the following link:

http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5201

Yes, you can download it for later installation.

For more heavy duty, short term needs, there is a free trial version of
"VIPRE" anti-virus. VIPRE used to be from Sunbelt Software, but Sunbelt was
sold to GFI recently.

In most cases, when there is a suspected infection, you want to run your
anti-virus or anti-spyware software (such as the free version of
MalwareBytes) in "safe mode", which I'm guessing may not work well with
JAWS?

Yes, Dave, they all do it, but I'll check on that which you mention

Subject: How to stop JAWS from changing sound cards


I have all versions of JAWS on my XP system from 10 on up. In each
one, I have edited JFW.INI to force a default port for Eloquence. I
suppose it works, I've never seen it not work. I do, however, have an
odd problem. On the machine I just described, I have a Firewire audio
interface that isn't always turned on. I also have Total Recorder
installed. If the Firewire interface is turned on and Total Recorder
starts up to record a program in the background, not using the
software or sound card setting, but direct from the stream, JAWS
magically switches to the Firewire audio interface and stays there
until I turn it off, even after Total Recorder has finished its
recording task and exited. I don't use TR for anything else but to do
these background stream-capture-type recordings. Should I uncheck the
box in TR's advanced configuration so its audio drivers won't load and
somehow confused JAWS, making it think it should switch over to the
Firewire interface? Or is there a way to tell JAWS to stay where it
is? This is quite annoying, since I'd prefer to leave the Firewire
interface turned on all the time, but to prevent this behavior, I have
to remember to shut it off before TR starts, otherwise I've got to do
it afterward anyway to get JAWS back onto the default (and,
coincidentally, only other) sound card in the system.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Re: How to stop JAWS from changing sound cards

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

That happened to us recently. IT and I have done a lot of tweaking and
upgrading, and, at one point, it became necessary to swap a video card.
JAWS immediately shut up. Investigation showed that JAWS had tried to
switch sound cards, or could not find the default, but the machine in
question had only one.

Re: How to stop JAWS from changing sound cards

Dave...
 

Steve,

Do all your JAWS versions do this? Later (I think 11 and up) versions of
JAWS no longer pay attention to the jfw.ini file, but require sound card
preference be set in the JAWS/Utilities/Sound Cards selection. Check the one
you prefer.

I have all versions of JAWS on my XP system from 10 on up. In each
one, I have edited JFW.INI to force a default port for Eloquence. I
suppose it works, I've never seen it not work. I do, however, have an
odd problem. On the machine I just described, I have a Firewire audio
interface that isn't always turned on. I also have Total Recorder
installed. If the Firewire interface is turned on and Total Recorder
starts up to record a program in the background, not using the
software or sound card setting, but direct from the stream, JAWS
magically switches to the Firewire audio interface and stays there
until I turn it off, even after Total Recorder has finished its
recording task and exited. I don't use TR for anything else but to do
these background stream-capture-type recordings. Should I uncheck the
box in TR's advanced configuration so its audio drivers won't load and
somehow confused JAWS, making it think it should switch over to the
Firewire interface? Or is there a way to tell JAWS to stay where it
is? This is quite annoying, since I'd prefer to leave the Firewire
interface turned on all the time, but to prevent this behavior, I have
to remember to shut it off before TR starts, otherwise I've got to do
it afterward anyway to get JAWS back onto the default (and,
coincidentally, only other) sound card in the system.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Tom:

I use Lotus Notes at work.

It is a real pain, but here's what I do.

If there is only one attachment, you can usually access it via Alt T.

If there are more than one attachment, you have to do a alt A for
actions, and then usually an alt D. Then, you have to use your arrow keys
to move your PC cursor to the place in the message where the attachments can
be found.

Sometimes, it's really like hunting and pecking, but I can usually find most
of them.

Fortunately for me, my University is going to migrate to Outlook 2010 as its
e-mail client, and it can't come soon enough!

How does one open attachments in lotus notes. I believe these are just
pasted into the email body.

Re: Balloons, Accessing Them

David Bailes
 

Hi Mike,
you can click a balloon message (or notification) by pressing numpad slash.
For windows 7, this info is available in this guide to the taskbar:
http://goo.gl/uu3XW
In this guide, in the notification area section, there's a sub-section on notifications (balloon messages).
 
David.

Hi All,

I recently changed my balloon message showing  time but, when I hear the
system notification sound telling me there is a balloon message, what is the
correct way to click the balloon message?  I haven't had 1 in quite some
time & i'm not sure of the proper procedures.  Also, which Jaws help book
would supply this information for both XP & Windows7?  All help would be
greatly appreciated.  Thanks much, take care.
Mike
