Diskpart is very good, I am not sure whether it will copy/move
partitions, but its nice and very accessible since its command line
and has lots of help.

Hi Mike!

The last time I tried to use that program I found it rather confusing, but that was several years ago, hopefully things have improved since then so I'll try it again. I still lament the loss of Partition Magic, it is in my humble opinion the best partition management software ever written. It and several other programs I can think of that were acquired and then buried by Norton/Symantech and is the primary reason, among others, why I will not buy anything from them.

Thanks for the suggestion!

thinking we could all give feedback to the developers and request they
incorporate standard list view controls or whatever, just so that we

Hi Stephen,

 

I called Vispero, who confirmed the extension is broken with NVDA and JAWS. The agent helping me said it looks like a Chrome update, or an update to the Wordle extension broke accessibility with multiple screen readers.  She advised trying the following link, while the extension is running.

https://www.possiblepromise.com/wordle

 

After configuring the 3 JAWS settings for this page, everything worked perfectly.  The problem is that the game on that page doesn’t appear to be synced with the NY Times page (e.g. yesterday’s word was already on the NY Times page.

 

The person at Vispero asked if I had contacted the developer of the extension; I hadn’t at that point, but have since posted a review in the Chrome Web Store, and sent an E-mail to the publisher via the Chrome Web Store.  Although there are 836 users of the extension, mine was the only review.  Perhaps others might submit a review and/or send a message to the publisher, in order to bring attention to the problem.

I updated JAWS 22 this morning so have the latest running on my Windows 10 laptop.  I wonder if something in the JAWS update negatively impacted the Wordle Chrome extension, because everything worked perfectly last night, prior to the update, but sadly that is no longer the case.

 

I confirmed the “Make Wordle Accessible” extension is added to Chrome, and that it is enabled.  However, when on the New York Times Wordle page, JAWS doesn’t report that it is active (can’t recall the exact wording of that).  I confirmed the 3 JAWS settings for that page are properly set.  I tried many different things like disabling the extension and then enabling it, removing the extension and adding it again, unloading JAWS and reloading it, restarting the computer, etc.  No success!

 

Any thoughts as to what is happening?  I guess I can call, but thought I’d check here first.

Follow these steps:

 

If using the laptop keyboard layout your modifier key is the Shift Lock. On a desktop keyboard layout, to get to the system tray, use the Jaws/Insert key on the numpad and press F11. Arrow down and see what is in the system tray.

 

Another problem you could be having is a need to run a Disk Cleanup for there could be a lot of stuff that has been accumulating on your hard drive that you don’t need.

 

To runDisk Cleanup go to your Start Menu and type Disk Cleanup and press enter. Go through the checkboxes and wherever you see numbers of files that have accumulated, make sure that the checkbox is check. Tab over to run the disk cleanup and follow the prompts. This will help.

 

After doing that you need to check to see if you are up-to-date with Windows and your Office Suite.

It might be that you have unnecessary programs in the System Tray that you don’t need running and too many programs that are pinned to the Taskbar.

Hi all,

I’ve noticed that sometimes when I open a message that Jaws goes silent but yet when I arrow through it the contents still show up on my braille display; any idea what could be causing this and what I could do to resolve this? It happens randomly which makes it weirder and harder to know when it’ll happen. Using latest versions of Jaws, Microsoft 365 and Windows 11.
