Hi again listers:

Well, I found out what was wrong with the download alerts in Edge.
I'm always worried I hit something and messed things up, but, it was not so. Here's a message I just got from Vispero support:

Hello Joseph:
Microsoft updated Edge. They changed the location of the download alert from the lower left of the screen to the upper right. You can still access the download info by pressing control j for the downloads folder then tab to your current download in the list. Development is awear of the issue.

Regards,

Sarai


Hope this helps.

Hi again, Joseph. If you want to hear Edge alerts for downloads, once
you have pressed ENTER on a download link, press CONTROL plus J to
take you to the downloads section. After you have pressed CONTROL plus
J, you will once again hear your download alerts.

Subject: Download alerts with Edge

Hi all:

I have the latest JAWS and my Windows 10 updates are current.

When I run Edge, and I download a file, JAWS now does not repeat
download status.

In the past, this has been annoying, at times, because those alerts
interrupt any other speech. But, it am now unaware if/when a download
finishes.

I found that the alerts are still spoken with Chrome.

Anyone else have this problem?

Thanks!

Hi,

 

You can visit the audio games Archive to download all Jim Kitchens games. I’ll put a link to the site below, its basically a resource for all audio games new and old, you can search by developer listing and Jim will show up in there, along with lots of other excellent audio game developers and their games:

I considered Jim a friend and we played chess via email for years.

I know he was committed to keeping his games free.

Something is going on where the site that compiled his games is located that has caused them to suspend their web site because some one or other is wanting people to have to pay for things hosted on that site.

So, I found the KitchenSyncCompleteSetup exe file that I had downloaded in 2015.

I put it on my site in a zip file to make it easier to download.

It is on the Games page off my web site.

Go to this link to find the zip file and download it.

moderated List Rules - Sat, 05/01/2021 #cal-notice

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

List Rules

When:
Saturday, 1 May 2021
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

The command won’t be available unless you are in a file.  If you have started a file, or are in one you plan to record over, or starting at the end, etc., then it should work.

 

Are you using the Jaws set files from Doug Lee?

Hello,

I am starting to use Goldwave for relatively basic recording. I notice that when I press Control-F9, to record, that this feature is not always activated. Also, JAWS does not speak Record and Stop when I use  the key commands for these functions.

 Assistance is appreciated.

Hi,

 

Yeah I think the iTunes one must be fairly new as I only heard about it a little while ago. I often see people asking for audio description resources on an audio game forum I belong to, so it will be good to have them all in one place on your website, providing you don’t mind me sharing the link to your site with others who are asking for audio description resources. Not to take it off topic, but on the topic of audio games, love that you mentioned Jim Kitchen on your site, he’s got some great games, although ironically I don’t think I’ve tried the baseball game,, I’ll have to give that one a go. Thanks again for adding the links I gave to your site, regarding the prime one, I actually thought I saw it on your sight, but when I looked again today I  couldn’t see it, which is the only reason I didn’t send that one yesterday .

I honestly thought I had the Prime link already there, but must have been one of those “good intentions” I always heard about.

 

I had the Apple TV plus, but having the iTunes links will be excellent.

I wonder if  that is new as I don’t recall finding it when I updated that part of my site a couple or 4 months ago.

As for Jim Kitchen, although I never spoke with him directly, I often saw him posting on the audio games mailing list, he was always friendly and helpful, I know he’s greatly missed in the audio games community  and his games even though they are old now are still very much loved by many.

Hi Richard,

 

Thanks for adding both of those. As for Jim Kitchen, although I never spoke with him directly, I often saw him posting on the audio games mailing list, he was always friendly and helpful, I know he’s greatly missed in the audio games community  and his games even though they are old now are still very much loved by many. Anyway, thanks again for sharing your website and for adding those extra links too.

Hi,

 

Yeah I think the iTunes one must be fairly new as I only heard about it a little while ago. I often see people asking for audio description resources on an audio game forum I belong to, so it will be good to have them all in one place on your website, providing you don’t mind me sharing the link to your site with others who are asking for audio description resources. Not to take it off topic, but on the topic of audio games, love that you mentioned Jim Kitchen on your site, he’s got some great games, although ironically I don’t think I’ve tried the baseball game,, I’ll have to give that one a go. Thanks again for adding the links I gave to your site, regarding the prime one, I actually thought I saw it on your sight, but when I looked again today I  couldn’t see it, which is the only reason I didn’t send that one yesterday .

I honestly thought I had the Prime link already there, but must have been one of those “good intentions” I always heard about.

 

I had the Apple TV plus, but having the iTunes links will be excellent.

I wonder if  that is new as I don’t recall finding it when I updated that part of my site a couple or 4 months ago.

Something else must be causing that to occur – I am using the latest version of firfox and alt-left works fine here. Don’t really remember having any problems with that function, specifically, in past versions, either.

Yes, this is a problem with Firefox.  When you activate a link to a web page, you cannot return to the previous page with Alt-left arrow.  To get around this problem, open each page in a separate window, shift-enter.  When you want to return to the previous page, just close the window with control-F4.

It does, a bit.

Next time you are in a meeting, try hitting alt control and ahift. Then tab. It will take you to audio settings for your microphone and speakers. Another tab will bring you to video on and off. And so forth. Actually, the first time you hit tab should take you to the mute and unmute button.

Hello.

 

I’m talking about basic zoom settings, such as microphone settings, etc..

 

I can sometimes get to the settings menu using the tab key when in the general Zoom window, but it’s not always consistent.

 

In my experience, the general Zoom window is the alternate window you can access via the Alt Tab function when in a Zoom meeting.  It’s not the window pertaining to  a specific Zoom meeting.

 

I hope this clarifies things a bit.

Hi, Tom. The Settings button should appear right after the "drop down" menu that shows your name and status. If you see the drop down menu, and don't get the Settings button when you TAB once, try SHIFT plus TAB.

Hi Mike,

First things first, I’d get the password by going to www.facebook.com, entering in your wife’s email address and choosing "forgot password".

If Facebook logs you in automatically and you don’t want the bother of logging yourself out to do this, just start a private browser window first - this is normally shift+control+n.

Cheers,

Ed

Using Google Chrome, I go to m.facebook.com and log in.  When I go to the
top of my page Jaws will say "Facebook".  I arrow down one time and Jaws
will say "switch to the regular mobile site".  If I'm on the regular site
Jaws will say something like "switch to the basic mobile site".  That is
where you press enter to make that change.  I've never switched back to the
regular site because it is so difficult to navigate.  What I use now is very
accessible and easy to use ...... Much like it was before Internet Explorer
no longer worked with Facebook.  Hope this helps.
