Bill, I think Joseph mistyped or mis-dictated. He meant the "Alt" key, it stands for "alternative", so better not use it unless you want an alternative lifestyle!!!

diskpart is very dangerous and you can do lots of bad things to your boot disk even when booted into windows if your not careful.
From the post I thought the boot drive was the intended drive.
I intended  the instructions to be  general enough so that anyone could use the diskpart commands in windows also. If you get a harddrive that just wont let you create a partition or install windows on it these are the commands that will fix this unless the disk is damaged.

It's also possible to turn an ISO image into a bootable disk, such as a
standard compact disk. The image isn't very big so it will fit on a standard
700-meg CD. Trouble is, like has been said, we don't even know what

Yes, this is an ISO image so you need to use a utility such as Rufus to
create either a bootable CD/DVD or, in my opinion a better solution, a
bootable USB drive, just copying the ISO to a USB drive will not work.

Once that is done you have to make sure your computer is set up to boot from
a USB drive, this is done in the BIOS and hence no speech is available and
you need sighted help.

Once you can boot from a USB drive you would simply boot up the computer
which contains the hard drive you want to completely wipe/overwrite. Since
you are actually booting up from this ISO and not Windows there is no
opportunity for Jaws to run. If you have sighted help I assume they then
follow the on-screen instructions to select the drive you want to erase and
complete the task.

Hi everyone,

The way I have chosen to deal with the awkwardness of having to use
the Insert key on the Numpad is to enable the setting for the Insert
key to behave as a sticky key.
This way, when you want to invoke key combinations which require a
key on the right side of the keyboard, say Insert-F12, you can
simply press either one of the Insert keys, release the Insert key,
and then press the key you need.
I believe this is preferable to using the Capslock key.
This is found in the Settings Center (Insert-6).
First, after arriving in the Setting Center, press Control-Shift-D
to load the global settings.
Then, expand the User node, and arrow to Insert key mode.
By default, it is unchecked, and so you would check it by pressing
spacebar on it.
Incidentally, you can tab once after focusing any option to jump
into the description pane and read the details for any setting, and
you can use up and down arrows to read all the information available.
Finally, tab to Ok to apply and save your settings and close the dialog.

moderated sticky keys

Ann Byrne
 

My student who has only one useable hand has asked me about sticky keys. Which keys stick and which do not? As I remember, JAWSkey is not a sticky key, and something strange always happened when I press ctrl.

Information would be helpful to us both.

thanks,

Ann

Hi,

 

If you go to  control panel, then select task bar  and navigation, , then tab down to select which icons appear on the task bar , then in here tab down to always show all all items in the  notification area, tick this box. Then everything running will show when you press jaws key and  f11. Oh, by the way this is the instructions for windows 10

Hope this helps

 

Paul

Hi:

 

How can I get jaws to display all of the icons when I press the jays key and f11 key.

 

I see some of the options but they are not there.

 

I think it has something to do with setting the taskbar properties. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks so mutch.

Woooohoooo! Michael, awesome catch! I had written FS about this very problem, and they forgot to remind me about the override setting.

You made my day!

I am looking to have JAWS read column headers to me and I used the title format in the defined name box and want to do that on subsequent sheets and it is not working even though I changed the name from for example titleClient1..G14 to TitleClient2..G14 first format worked subsequent sheets not so much. What am I doing wrong? Is there a keystroke to get to the edit field of the already defined name?

JAWS or any other screen reader will not work because due to the nature
that DBAN needs to not have Windows running. that is the point of nuking
the hard drive whether booting from the CD or a USB drive.

I'm not sure what OS DBAN uses, if it is a flavor of Linux or something
else. but if you can find out and manage to get speech to work with it,
let us know how it can be done from a bootable CD, from a non savvy user
perspective.
hope someone, you?, can pull it off.

Hi:



My thoughts were to create the cd and then take a look at from windows.



If that does not work I was going to create a Linux system and try the disk
there.



I have been so busy I just have not had the time to do it.



Haa good day.

It's also possible to turn an ISO image into a bootable disk, such as a
standard compact disk. The image isn't very big so it will fit on a standard
700-meg CD. Trouble is, like has been said, we don't even know what
operating system it is, so it's kind of guesswork as to what screenreader
will work with it. Something Windows? Something Linux? Character- or
window-based? Nobody has ever tried reverse-engineering DBAN. If I had
better smarts, I'd've given it a try years ago, but that one's a bit over my
head.

Yes, this is an ISO image so you need to use a utility such as Rufus to
create either a bootable CD/DVD or, in my opinion a better solution, a
bootable USB drive, just copying the ISO to a USB drive will not work.

Once that is done you have to make sure your computer is set up to boot from
a USB drive, this is done in the BIOS and hence no speech is available and
you need sighted help.

Once you can boot from a USB drive you would simply boot up the computer
which contains the hard drive you want to completely wipe/overwrite. Since
you are actually booting up from this ISO and not Windows there is no
opportunity for Jaws to run. If you have sighted help I assume they then
follow the on-screen instructions to select the drive you want to erase and
complete the task.



Best regards,

Sieghard

Hi:



I was wondering if anybody has found a way to use Derics boot and nuke with
Jaws.



I just downloaded the file and it is an iso file.



I am just curious.

Hi, Val. Another way to delete a large number of files at once from Recycle Bin is:

As Laura said, Go to the Recycle Bin on your desktop, but this time, Do press ENTER. Once in that folder, press CONTROL plus A, then the delete key. It will ask if you want to delete all these files. Press SPACE on the Yes button. That's it.

How do you delete a large number of items in recycling bin all at once?

Good Evening

 

The defined names override in JFW is turned off. So that is not the issue. Does the scope have to change ? I believe the original defined name was set to have a scope of the workbook. This is a real pain in the derriere .

Hi Joe!  You may want to try defining your titles like this:

Press the applications key, and use your up arrow to find Define Name.

Press enter to open the box.

Then type, title.. and the last cell that has data in the range.  So if the last cell is g23, then you would type, title..g23.  If this doesn’t work, you may want to check in your JAWS quick settings to see if the Excel settings are correct.  In the search box, type define, and make sure that the override feature is turned off.  Hope this helps!

I have not seen that when I am trying to read a PDF. That's interesting,
especially if you're using JAWS 2018.

Hi Mike! You will need to open the files with Adobe Reader, and not Edge.
If it were me, I would download the files to my harddrive, and then use the
applications key. Once you have the context menu pulled up, scroll down to
the option that says Recognize with JAWS. Hope this helps!
