Greetings:

 

I do use VLC Media Player for my default audio but find that if I want to work with CD’s, I still need the Windows Media Player.

 

Warmly,

Good morning everyone, 

 

Sometime yesterday morning, I went into the VLC media application which is on my desktop, and received a message that said, that there was an update for this program which I installed.  My question here is, I don’t see any options on how too either how too rip or burn a CD, or any option that says anything about how too set a file  bits rate like there used too be in older versions of windows media  player.

 

If anyone has experience with this newer player, I would appreciate any help and advice on how too go about doing any of these things with this newer version. 

 

Thanks in advance,

Hi Don,
If there is more than one device listed, try using one of the other devices, sometimes your device will show up
with a name that you don't recognize.
Make sure the preferred device is powered on.

Thanks for this info.

I’m trying to use my scanner from my hp all in one that is connected via ethernet connection or via the network set up here at my place.

The jaws convenient ocr program sees my hp all in one and when try to acquire something on the scanner doesn’t scan.

So that’s why reaching out to see how can make this work.

Hello,

 

I have an HP all-in-1.  I find if I use HP Scan and Capture and a lot of patience with the JAWS cursor I can select to scan a document.  Once the scan is complete the buttons and menus are fairly accessible.  I save my document to the desktop in a pdf format and then I can choose the OCR with JAWS.  If you just want to read a document, I find that scanning/capturing with my phone produces good results, too. 

 

Hope this helps,

Hi Randy,
 
Try the following:
1. Open the Run dialog with the keystroke, Windows key + R, and type the following,
 
shell:appsfolder
 
and press enter.
 
Now use first letter navigation using the letter, O , until you land on OneNote.
 
With One Note highlighted open the context menu with the applications key or shift + F10 and up arrow to, Create shortcut, and press enter.
 
You'll get a dialog about a shortcut key can't be created here, would you like it on the desktop instead, so press the spacebar on the, Yes, button.
 
Okay, you're done, a OneNote shortcut should now be on your desktop.
 
 
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I try to keep my computers awake.  When they go to sleep, they don't get email; then, if they've slept long, it take a long time to catch up on the mail download.  I guess it's different for different folks.

You're not wrong.

There are a number of reasons why Sleep functionality may stop working.  And one of those gives a clear indication of it being the root cause if Sleep does not appear on the power menu, particularly on a laptop.  I hope the original questioner will answer my question about this.

Sleep problems are Windows-based (or hardware based) and often require several iterations of Q & A before the likely root cause (and, of course, fix) becomes clear.

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:

I also ended up converting a lot more documents than I intended as the folder selection process will take some getting used to.

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!
