Does anyone have advice on settings, voices, and speech and sound schemes for pleasure reading?  I'm used classic with quotes, but modified it to have a sound effect when it comes across a heading as it's easier for me to notice it's a heading.

If the only issue is that the sort is on date, but in the reverse order that you'd prefer, then just hit ALT + V, RS [View Ribbon, Reverse Sort].

moderated changing the order of emails

Judy
 

Hi, I had some trouble  and my email client stopped working, but with the help of a sighted friend I got it back, but without all my folders I created and the emails are listed in a different order than I’ve always used. Right now the new ones are on top; I’ve always had it that the new ones were on the bottom, but it’s been so long that I can’t figure out how to change  the order back. It kind of drives me crazy this way. How can I turn it around. Using Win 10, outlook 2010 and jaws 2019. Thanks. Judy & Libby

Hi,

 

Windows Dispart will see the entire partition. What built in manager are you  trying?

 

Also bear in mind the remainder of the partition is probably a recovery one.

 

All the best

Hi All,

 

I just noticed that my laptop came with a 1tb ssd, and windows only shows it as a 512 disk.  This is an issue with the partitions. 

 

The built in windows partition software doesn’t see the extra space.  Can someone recommend an accessible partition management software tha t is accessible? Back in the day partition magic was great, but I don’t think that is around anymore.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Best.

Hi,

 

Actually you can convert M4A to MP3 and they are not protected.

 

Just use NCH Switch.

I believe it can be done, but apple’s not gonna make it easy for you to convert the files to an open/accessible format like mp3. Those files are suppsoed to be protected. I’ve seen a couple of pages that show you ways to do this but they all involve some ridiculous steps that seem excessive/time-consuming/overly complicated.

What I would do is either: simplyb urn an udio cd, if you can, or, maybe, play the songs througha nd use a programme to capture the output. Ou could do this with most any digital audio editor. You might lose some quality when converting to mp3, but should be fairly reasonable so long as you use a high bitrate like 320.

Hello Everyone,

I have a quick question.

I am making a Christmas compact disc to send to family and friends.

I had a playlist in iTunes. Then I downloaded it on my PC.

Now the files are in m4p files. I need to conver them into Mp3 to be able to burn the compact disc.

Does anyone know of an easy program to do this?

Thanks,

Jeff Lukacsena

Yeah, but I know that I didn't have to process a file that I have had to open.
I know that in the past, I could just paste into a new open book file and process it.
Last night I even pasted into a new open book file, and saved it and it still would not process.
But when I opened a DOC file that I had saved to first, it then would save to audio.
Weird, but now it works.

Yes, that's right.  While in OB from the file menu you select, open..., then navigate to the file and open it then wait for the file to be fully processed then continue.  The conversion won't continue until the file is fully processed.

I know that in the past, I just opened open book, and went into edit mode, and pasted the contents of a file into it, but that doesn't work.

Morning Glenn,
 
Here are the steps I follow to convert text to audio:
 
1. While in Openbook navigate to the text file you want to open & save as an audio / MP3 or, WAV file.  Open the file, & wait for Openbook to process the
whole file.  It won't convert the file to audio until the file is finished processing.
2. After the file has finished processing press, Alt + F, to open the File menu, then press the letter, D, to open the save as audio menu.  Or press, Alt
+ F, & arrow up / down to, Save as audio, & press enter.
3. You'll now be in where you need to choose the page range, & the 2 options are radio buttons, Save Page Range or, Current Page.  If you choose the, Save
Page Range radio button, tab 1 time & it will give you the page range of the whole file, i.e, 1-115.  If the, Current Page, radio button is selected, &
you tab 1 time you'll get an, Okay, button, & if you press that Okay button only the current page will be saved as an audio file.
 
If you choose the, Save Page Range, radio button tab 1 time, & you have a, Save page range as a single file, checkbox.  If you leave this box checked the
file will be saved to audio in individual pages.  So, if the file is 115 pages long that's how many individual MP3 files you'll have.
If you uncheck this box the file will be saved as just 1 complete audio MP3 file consisting of all the pages.
 
4. Whether you choose Save Page Range or, Current Page, tab 1 more time to an, Okay, button, press the spacebar.  You'll now be in a File name edit field
/ dialogue box where you type in a name for the file.  After filling in the file name, tab 1 time to the, Files of type combobox, & you'll have 2 choices,
MP3 or, WAV, arrow up / down to make your choice.  Now tab 1 time to the Save, button, & press enter or spacebar, & wait for your file to finish converting. 
Your audio file / files will be saved to your chosen default location.  For example, my Openbook saved files go to My Documents folder, & Openbook creates
an, Audio folder that the files are saved to in the My Documents folder when saving as audio.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

You could send me the newest one that you know does the save as audio.
I wonder if FS took that feature away, although I don't then know why it would still be in the file menu, but only unavailable.
Thanks

I've got some older versions of Openbook 9 saved, do you want any or all of them?  I don't think FS offers older versions of OB9 on their website.

Hi Glenn,
 
Okay I just converted a .DOCX file to audio using the default Eloquence voice, so I wonder if you're running the latest version, but even an older version should work.  I'm running Openbook 9, what version are you running?

Hi Mike,
I've done this at least 50 times over the past 15 years or so, so it isn't that I don't know how.
I just cannot figure out why the option is unavailable.
Hoping someone here might know.
I wonder if it is because I'm using the Eloquence voice that comes with Open Book, instead of the windows TTS.
Thanks.

Morning Glenn,
 
Here are the steps I follow to convert text to audio:
 
1. While in Openbook navigate to the text file you want to open & save as an audio / MP3 or, WAV file.  Open the file, & wait for Openbook to process the
whole file.  It won't convert the file to audio until the file is finished processing.
2. After the file has finished processing press, Alt + F, to open the File menu, then press the letter, D, to open the save as audio menu.  Or press, Alt
+ F, & arrow up / down to, Save as audio, & press enter.
3. You'll now be in where you need to choose the page range, & the 2 options are radio buttons, Save Page Range or, Current Page.  If you choose the, Save
Page Range radio button, tab 1 time & it will give you the page range of the whole file, i.e, 1-115.  If the, Current Page, radio button is selected, &
you tab 1 time you'll get an, Okay, button, & if you press that Okay button only the current page will be saved as an audio file.
 
If you choose the, Save Page Range, radio button tab 1 time, & you have a, Save page range as a single file, checkbox.  If you leave this box checked the
file will be saved to audio in individual pages.  So, if the file is 115 pages long that's how many individual MP3 files you'll have.
If you uncheck this box the file will be saved as just 1 complete audio MP3 file consisting of all the pages.
 
4. Whether you choose Save Page Range or, Current Page, tab 1 more time to an, Okay, button, press the spacebar.  You'll now be in a File name edit field
/ dialogue box where you type in a name for the file.  After filling in the file name, tab 1 time to the, Files of type combobox, & you'll have 2 choices,
MP3 or, WAV, arrow up / down to make your choice.  Now tab 1 time to the Save, button, & press enter or spacebar, & wait for your file to finish converting. 
Your audio file / files will be saved to your chosen default location.  For example, my Openbook saved files go to My Documents folder, & Openbook creates
an, Audio folder that the files are saved to in the My Documents folder when saving as audio.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Hi,
I hadn't reinstalled Open Book for a while, but I did tonight because I need to convert some text to audio.
I'm using the Eloquence voice that it comes with, and I put some text in the new document and try to save as audio in the file menu, and it keeps saying not available.
Does anyone know why this is?
Thanks.

That was a big file, 2.51 GB, but I got it.
I didn't want to go through this though, that is uninstalling,
then reinstalling.
So first I ran my installer again, and did a repair, and restarted, and it still does not work.
I'm fearing that I will now have to go through the dreaded uninstall and reinstall, and I'll probably find that it still does not work.

Yes, if using laptop layout, which I do with a desktop keyboard too.
It's actually easier than using the insert key, since the A is right next to the caps lock.
