I just set this up for one of the Macs here. Will report on how it behaves tomorrow morning. Yes, I could have set it for an hour from now, and probably should have done, but it won't be convenient for me to test whether it works or how it behaves until tomorrow.

Hi Steve & all,
 
this can be done, you can auto start a computer.
 
Im sure you have heard of the bios.
 
The way this works is that the BIOS has a button battary that keeps it powered all the time, even if the computer is turned off
 
You can set a computer to start up every day at a serton time, or you can set the computer to wake up on lan witch meens you can turn your computer on from another computer 100 miles away.
 
if you google this you will find many pages telling you how to set this up via the bios, as long as your machine isnt to old.
 
I have pasted a link to 1 of these pages below,
the link may wrap over 2 or 3 lines so you may need to heighlight it & copy it then paist it into the address bar of what ever browser you use.
 
 
Once on the page
look for the heading

Every version of Windows back to at least XP,maybe even further, has a program called Task Scheduler. You can certainly add a task to shut the machine down in there. Starting it again, though, I don't think is possible. In fact, I'd go out on a limb to say it is absolutely positively not possible. Think about it: How would a device that's quiet, not taking power, not responsive to any stimuli either internal or external, know, or be told by some external force, that it's time to turn on?

That's right, but notice the active/important phrase "sleep mode", which is not the same as turning something off completely.

what is wake on land - Google Search

Wake on LAN is a technology that allows a network professional to remotely power on a computer or to wake it up from sleep mode. By remotely triggering

the computer to wake up and perform scheduled maintenance tasks, the technician does not have to physically visit each computer on the network.

Hi everyone

 

The provider of my e-mail-address using Roundcube Webmail as there default. This webmail has a very inaccessible interface for screen reader users - for example I not can select between the folders inbox, Sent etc. with JAWS.

 

I has tried to change between the themes, but nothing is changed regarding the accessibility. Roundcube Webmail will not told me if they have a special theme for screen reader users, but refer to the provider of my e-mail-address service (web hotel). Here they not can help me.

 

Has you on this list experience with Roundcube Webmail and an accessible theme, or alternatively with other webmail software's I can install on the web hotel (PHP or ASP) where the accessibility for screen reader users working?

 

Thanks in advance for the answers.

Thanks, but once again, shutdown means shutdown, nobody home, nobody's listening, no program is running. What you're talking about is almost the equivalent of a Unix run-level even lower than 3. I've been through lots and lots of BIOS's and have never seen a feature where a timer could be set to start a computer from cold. From sleep or hibernate, maybe. But I'll sure check out these links.

The way this works is that the BIOS has a button battary that keeps it powered all the time, even if the computer is turned off
 
You can set a computer to start up every day at a serton time, or you can set the computer to wake up on lan witch meens you can turn your computer on from another computer 100 miles away.
 
if you google this you will find many pages telling you how to set this up via the bios, as long as your machine isnt to old.
 
I have pasted a link to 1 of these pages below,
the link may wrap over 2 or 3 lines so you may need to heighlight it & copy it then paist it into the address bar of what ever browser you use.
 
 
Once on the page

Hi Jonas,

I think the statement "it's easy to do" is very subjective and it's not something I would ever tell somebody without first knowing what their abilities are.
Maybe from your point of view and level of knowledge it is easy to do, but many of us on these lists are often above average in knowledge and experience. You do, however, need to ask people like Val at what level they are. I don't know Val, but from reading his messages and some of the replies he received I gather that he is in Scottland and that he is an older gentleman who may not necessarily have been a computer user or at least not a blind computer user for that long. If this is the case then installing Windows from scratch or even making the installation media might be beyond his abilities. Personally I find it quite easy as well and as a Jaws user for 29 years NVDA just does not cut it and I might as well use Narrator if I need to do an installation without sighted help. In any case, if the speed of Val's laptop is not satisfactory and too slow for what he is willing to put up with then he will probably need to ask somebody else to help him with this or, if that is not possible, he may have to go to a store where somebody can do it for him and hopefully without charging an arm and a leg.

Re: Skeduler for turning computer on and off

Angus <2.g.i.84972@...>
 

Hi Nino
 
sorry forgot to answer your original question, how to turn the computer off
 
this is the way I do it, others may have a better way.
 
Open the command prompt,
then lets say I want the computer to turn off in 2 hours,
I have to work out the amount of seconds this is,
so 2 hours is 120 minutes then I times 120 by 60 to give me the seconds.
= 7200 seconds
so now I type the below string into the command prompt
shutdown /s /t 7200
then press enter, & this will turn the computer off in 2 hours
note the spaces between the switches, example,
shutdown is the command
/s is a switch telling the computer to turn off,
example, /r tells the computer to restart
now /t tells it to turn off after the amount of seconds you have entered after the /t
so I spose t for time
 
so if you type in the command prompt
shutdown /s /t 60
the computer will shutdown in sixty seconds
 
hope this helps

Wake on LAN is a technology that allows a network professional to remotely power on a computer or to wake it up from sleep mode. By remotely triggering

the computer to wake up and perform scheduled maintenance tasks, the technician does not have to physically visit each computer on the network.

Every version of Windows back to at least XP,maybe even further, has a program called Task Scheduler. You can certainly add a task to shut the machine down in there. Starting it again, though, I don't think is possible. In fact, I'd go out on a limb to say it is absolutely positively not possible. Think about it: How would a device that's quiet, not taking power, not responsive to any stimuli either internal or external, know, or be told by some external force, that it's time to turn on?

Thanks, Steve. You have been very helpful. My problem didn't actually get solved, but it wasn't because suggestions from everybody weren't right or helpful. As Bill said, Windows side by side, stacked, and cascade are all unavailable, so I think I have tried all I can for resizing browser window that is open.

Again, thanks to all for the help.

Hi Nance,

 

You can get to the taskbar by Tabbing three times from the desktop, or pressing Windows + T.

The taskbar has icons for the apps you have open, plus any that have been pinned there for quick access. There is also a blank area on the taskbar. A mouse user can right click one of the icons to get a context menu of options for that app, or right click the blank area for some other options such as the one you want.

With the keyboard, you can't get directly to the blank area of the taskbar. When your focus goes to the taskbar, it lands on one of the icons and if you arrow around, you'll move between those icons.

But you can get to the taskbar's context menu by pressing applications key or Shift + F10 to get the context menu for whichever application you've focused on, press Escape to close it and then applications key or Shift + F10 again and you'll get the context menu for the taskbar itself; arrow down to Show windows side by side and press Enter.

What happens then will depend on how many windows you have open, but basically Windows will try to show all of them in a separate part of the screen. There might be a benefit for sighted users, not for JAWS users.

By the way, you can turn it off again by going back to the taskbar context menu and choosing  Undo show side by side.

 

If you have two apps open, showing them side by side arranges them so that one app takes up the left half of the screen, and the other takes up the right half. You can do this with the keyboard easily in Windows 7; with focus on an app, press Windows + Left and it will move to the left hand half of the screen. Alt + Tab to the other app and press Windows + Right and it will take up the right half. To undo this arrangement, press Windows + Up on each app in turn to maximise it.

 

To get the chevron back in the notification area, press Windows and type notification into the search area, then press Enter on Notification Area Icons. That opens a window and you can Shift + Tab to a checkbox. When it's checked, the chevron isn't there; when it's unchecked the chevron appears.

 

Hope that helps,

Steve

I should've told you I have Windows 7 and JAWS 18. A long time ago, I got rid of the chevron button, and I can't remember how I did it. If anyone knows how to restore this, please let me know. Thanks to everybody for the help.

Re: Right-clicking on the task bar

Steve Griffiths
 


Hi Nance,

 

You can get to the taskbar by Tabbing three times from the desktop, or pressing Windows + T.

The taskbar has icons for the apps you have open, plus any that have been pinned there for quick access. There is also a blank area on the taskbar. A mouse user can right click one of the icons to get a context menu of options for that app, or right click the blank area for some other options such as the one you want.

With the keyboard, you can't get directly to the blank area of the taskbar. When your focus goes to the taskbar, it lands on one of the icons and if you arrow around, you'll move between those icons.

But you can get to the taskbar's context menu by pressing applications key or Shift + F10 to get the context menu for whichever application you've focused on, press Escape to close it and then applications key or Shift + F10 again and you'll get the context menu for the taskbar itself; arrow down to Show windows side by side and press Enter.

What happens then will depend on how many windows you have open, but basically Windows will try to show all of them in a separate part of the screen. There might be a benefit for sighted users, not for JAWS users.

By the way, you can turn it off again by going back to the taskbar context menu and choosing  Undo show side by side.

 

If you have two apps open, showing them side by side arranges them so that one app takes up the left half of the screen, and the other takes up the right half. You can do this with the keyboard easily in Windows 7; with focus on an app, press Windows + Left and it will move to the left hand half of the screen. Alt + Tab to the other app and press Windows + Right and it will take up the right half. To undo this arrangement, press Windows + Up on each app in turn to maximise it.

 

To get the chevron back in the notification area, press Windows and type notification into the search area, then press Enter on Notification Area Icons. That opens a window and you can Shift + Tab to a checkbox. When it's checked, the chevron isn't there; when it's unchecked the chevron appears.

 

Hope that helps,

Steve
