Balabolka is not my "go to" program for this sort of conversion, even though it can do it.  I think of it more when I want text to audio.  But it's certainly a fine tool if you use that feature set.

David,

What do you want to convert, I cannot see your message under Brians
message here, so am not sure what you want.
To convert epub and Word documents to text?

You can dop this with Balabolka
There is also a console version called Balabolka text and I am using
this tool to convert Word documents or pdf files to text, but epub is
also supported.,
I hgave created a batchfile myself to convert things in a batch, so if
you want this tool, let me know.

If you want to download Balabolka yourself:

Kind regards, Marten

The main adjustment is that you have to tab into and out of  and then back into the combo boxes with NVDA if you want to hear any change you have set in the conversion format.
I also ended up converting a lot more documents than I intended as the folder selection process will take some getting used to.
Despite all this it worked so thanks for pointing me to the tool.

Hi,

  Unless I’m wrong there is no connection between JAWS and when your computer sleeps.  The setting in System settings controls when the computer sleeps and is different when plugged in or on battery.

I have experienced this situation after a system update.  That was only one time and other updates did not affect the computer in this way.

Did you recently get a Windows update or otherwise update your system ?

May want to talk with Microsoft Disability desk if no solution.

Hello Listers,

 

With JAWS version 2022.21124, my computer won’t automatically go to sleep when I haven’t accessed it within the Windows 10 and JAWS sleep intervals (I have both set for 10 minutes). This sleep mode worked in JAWS 2021 and previous versions.

 

To avoid confusion, I’m not referring to manually going to the Settings menu and putting JAWS to sleep for certain applications, such as Open Book, which has its own speech feature. I’m talking about the sleep that comes up when you bring up the commands to either sleep, shutdown, restart, etc.

 

How can I set JAWS 2022 to make my computer automatically go to sleep like

Version 2021 and previous ones do?

Interesting spin to this computer going to sleep business.  I am using windows 11 and when my computer goes to sleep, I have issues getting it to wake up under jaws 2022.  Just throwing that out since we’re discussing sleeping issues.  Any ideas?  Final note; when I am ready to wake the computer up, jaws does not see the resume button, it only sees the lock button.  It also likes to rotate through the area where it discusses the different pictures the computer is willing to put on your screen.  So, something else to ponder.  Thanks!

Hi all,
I forgot to ask, my Outlook.com account got locked again on Saturday and I haven't unlocked it because I couldn't send messages from it anyway so I figured there wasn't much point. Anyway, I re-set my password today, would doing this unlock my account? I know I got a message on Saturday telling me to sign into my Outlook.com account, but since I can't access my account using Outlook right now and I find the webmail version hard to use if re-setting my password didn't unlock my account does anyone know of another quick and easy way to unlock my account? I ask as I got to wondering if my account being locked is the reason for the error message that I asked about earlier. Hope someone can help me!!

Thanks; however I care more about an answer to my second message about whether or not my account would still be locked after resetting my password and if so whether or not there's another easy way to unlock it since it's rather difficult to use the Outlook.com webmail interface so I can't get to the message that's telling me to sign in to my account. I would've started a new topic, but I can't find the new topic link; I used to be able too, but it seems like the layout of the site has changed in the last couple of days. Sorry, I'm getting off-topic.

Okay, so if I'm able to get it setup then I won't have to do anything within Outlook in order for it to work in Outlook? Also after re-setting my password I just tried again and I was able to get to the screen where it tries to send a test message but I got a message saying that an unknown error occured and the error code was 0xc8101  Any idea what could be wrong and what I might be able to do to fix it?

If you are referring to zeros populating rows that you have not yet entered a transaction for, I am not sure of your original formula, but I just use an if statement to leave the cell blank unless that row has information in it.

Something like this:

If(a3="","", ... rest of your formula... then make sure to end it with a )
The A3 is just the first cell of the row you are doing. You can use any cell that you will enter information in for each row.

If you have more questions feel free to let me know.
