Re: A tutorial on Google Chrome.

OK, I did save it to my computer. So I deleted that file and went back and downloaded it all over again.

Same result. Media Player has stopped working says the dialogue that comes up right after MP starts.

Do I need to sign up for a drop box account before downloading?

Hi,
I always save the file and then play it. Maybe it has something to do with
running instead of saving, I really don't know. Try saving it to your
computer. It should play in about any player. I tried saving it myself and
pressed enter on the saved MP3 file and it played in my VLC media player.
Take care and let me know if it still doesn't work after saving the file.

Hi all,
Here is the tutorial on Google Chrome Browser that I have promised you. It
is a Audio MP3 file that will play on about anything. I go over how to save
files, and use Surfs Up to demonstrate everything you need to know about
using different combo boxes and all you need to know when using a browser. I
hope you enjoy it. It is an hour long. The link below is a drop box link. I
fixed my drop box, so this link should work fine. Enter on the link and a
page will open up. Go to almost to the bottom of the page and enter on the
download link. You can save it to your computer. I hope you can get even
more out of Google Chrome. Here is the link below.

Re: Windows 10 difference, autoplay not working, or is it in another form?

Steve Griffiths
 

Hi Peter,

I've been playing. When I plug in a USB that is bitlocker protected, I get a toast which I can read with Windows + V. Like you, Enter and Space do nothing for me. But I can Tab twice - first time I get to "Dismiss this notification", second time JAWS says nothing, but if I then press Space, it opens the necessary screen for entering the password.

So the steps that work for me are Windows + V, Tab, Tab, Space. The toast only stays on screen for a few seconds, so I have to be quick!

Hi Steve,

that worked. After hearing the musical tone, windows+v gives me the notification message.

Itannounces the device and:
tap to choose what happens with removable drive

I cannot invoke a tap, the space-bar and ENTER do nothing.

When I choose to eject the USB pen drive I hear:
... safe to remove hardware.

Inserting the MS Office setup disk does not start automatically and I don't know how to tap with the keyboard.

Thanks for getting me this far.

Hi Peter,

A couple of things you could try.

When you hear the musical tone, press Windows + V and you may hear a new notification message; on some of these you can press Space to get a list of actions you can take. This worked on Windows 8 and, for me, it works on Windows 10 when I plug in a USB drive. I don't have a DVD player on my machines to test.

The other thing is to go to the Start menu and search on Autoplay. The first result should take you to the Autoplay area in which you can do a lot more than turn it on - you can Tab through it and get options for all kinds of situations where new media is attached, and choose a default action for each of them.

You should only get the notification message, which I've heard some people refer to as a toast, if there isn't a default action to take for whatever you've just plugged in.

Steve

Hello,

In Windows 10, I have auto play on. When a music CD is inserted or a USB penn drive connected, all I hear is a musical tone. There is no dialogue prompting me what to do with this device. I'm told there is a brief notificationcontaining the word "tap". This might be from Windows 8 which was gearedto the touch screen tablet devices.

A setup disk, like MS Office 2013, will not start the setup process. I have to go into "This PC" to activate the drive,and then search for a setup.exe file.

How do JAWS users handle this?

In Windows 7, we heard the "click this balloon" message and the JAWS numpad slash could activate it. Since using Windows 10, I have not yet heard a "click this balloon" message.

Re: Creating a short cut to open a program not on your desktop

Adrian Spratt
 

I made an error in the instructions I posted yesterday, which came to me in the middle of the night. IN step 6, press alt-enter, not control-enter. My apologies. I've made the correction in both places in the message copied below.

here are the steps for creating a shortcut in Windows 7.

1. Press the Windows key.

2. up arrow once and press enter on all apps.

3. Press the up or down arrow once to get into the programs list, then use first-letter navigation to locate the program that you want to set the short cut for.

4. If the program name is announced along with the word "closed," press right arrow to open it.

5. There may be several options here, such as uninstall. The program itself will have the name of the program without any additional wording or letters.

6. Once you have focus on the program, press alt-enter to bring up preferences. In every instance I've encountered, you will land in the shortcut dialog.

7. tab to the edit field and enter your choice of shortcut. If you want a shortcut that includes the control and alt keys, just enter the letter. Otherwise, press the entire combination, such as control-shift-c.

8. No need to tab to the OK button. Just press enter to exit the dialog.

Now you have a shortcut that will work from anywhere in your computer, unless you're in an application that has assigned that same shortcut to an application-specific function. For example, my IE shortcut is control-alt-I, which doesn't work in MS Word because that key combination performs a Word function.

It's even easier when the program has an icon on the desktop. Skip steps 1 through 5. Just place focus on the icon, press alt-enter (step 6) and pick up with step 7.


Windows 10 difference, autoplay not working, or is it in another form?

Peter Tesar
 

Hi Steve,

that worked. After hearing the musical tone, windows+v gives me the notification message.

Itannounces the device and:
tap to choose what happens with removable drive

I cannot invoke a tap, the space-bar and ENTER do nothing.

When I choose to eject the USB pen drive I hear:
... safe to remove hardware.

Inserting the MS Office setup disk does not start automatically and I don't know how to tap with the keyboard.

Thanks for getting me this far.

The other thing is to go to the Start menu and search on Autoplay. The first result should take you to the Autoplay area in which you can do a lot more than turn it on - you can Tab through it and get options for all kinds of situations where new media is attached, and choose a default action for each of them.

You should only get the notification message, which I've heard some people refer to as a toast, if there isn't a default action to take for whatever you've just plugged in.

Hello,

In Windows 10, I have auto play on. When a music CD is inserted or a USB penn drive connected, all I hear is a musical tone. There is no dialogue prompting me what to do with this device. I'm told there is a brief notificationcontaining the word "tap". This might be from Windows 8 which was gearedto the touch screen tablet devices.

A setup disk, like MS Office 2013, will not start the setup process. I have to go into "This PC" to activate the drive,and then search for a setup.exe file.

How do JAWS users handle this?

In Windows 7, we heard the "click this balloon" message and the JAWS numpad slash could activate it. Since using Windows 10, I have not yet heard a "click this balloon" message.

I go over how to save files, and use Surfs Up to demonstrate everything you need to know about using different combo boxes and all you need to know when using a browser. I hope you enjoy it. It is an hour long. The link below is a drop box link. I fixed my drop box, so this link should work fine. Enter on the link and a page will open up. Go to almost to the bottom of the page and enter on the download link. You can save it to your computer. I hope you can get even more out of Google Chrome. Here is the link below.

Hi, Judith.

IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol.

The practical application for using IMAP is when you have two computers
on which you want to view the same email messages. If you leave your
messages in your inbox while using IMAP, you will be able to view the
messages in that inbox with a second device like a second computer.

If you use POP3, once you download the messages on the first computer,
they cannot be downloaded and viewed on the second computer using an
email client like Outlook, Thunderbird, or Windows Live. You can still
log onto the server using the web, via an Internet browser, and view your
messages that way, whether you use POP3 or IMAP.

One big difference between IMAP and POP3 is that, if you delete messages
out of your inbox with IMAP, you actually delete them from the server,
and they are really, really gone. If you are using POP3, if you delete
them out of the inbox, you can still log onto the server using an
Internet browser and view the messages, as long as you have your POP3
setup set to leave a copy on the server.

I hope this helps you.

Re: Creating a short cut to open a program not on your desktop

David Moore
 

Hi all.
These steps that I gave you are for Windows 10. It is a little different than Windows 7. Good job on explaining on how to do this in Windows 7. Well, now you have the instructions on how to do this in win 7 and win 10. Take care. Sorry for not mentioning that this procedure is for win 10, I forgot to mention that.

Subject: RE: Creating a short cut to open a program not on your desktop

David, I'm not sure which version of Windows your instructions apply to. here are the steps for creating a shortcut in Windows 7, where it's a lot easier.

1. Press the Windows key.

2. up arrow once and press enter on all apps.

3. Press the up or down arrow once to get into the programs list, then use first-letter navigation to locate the program that you want to set the short cut for.

4. If the program name is announced along with the word "closed," press right arrow to open it.

5. There may be several options here, such as uninstall. The program itself will have the name of the program without any additional wording or letters.

6. Once you have focus on the program, press control-enter to bring up preferences. In every instance I've encountered, you will land in the shortcut dialog.

7. tab to the edit field and enter your choice of shortcut. If you want a shortcut that includes the control and alt keys, just enter the letter. Otherwise, press the entire combination, such as control-shift-c.

8. No need to tab to the OK button. Just press enter to exit the dialog.

Now you have a shortcut that will work from anywhere in your computer, unless you're in an application that has assigned that same shortcut to an application-specific function. For example, my IE shortcut is control-alt-I, which doesn't work in MS Word because that key combination performs a Word function.

It's even easier when the program has an icon on the desktop. Skip steps 1 through 5. Just place focus on the icon, press control-enter (step 6) and pick up with step 7.

Hi all.
I want to tell all of you the procedure to set a short cut to open a program that is not on the desktop or pinned to the start area. You can create a short cut to any program on your computer. Here is what you do.
First, press the Windows key to open the start area. up arrow once and press enter on all apps. Arrow to the program that you want to set the short cut for. If it says collapsed, press enter to open it. Now, arrow down to the program and press the applications key. Next, arrow down to open file location and press enter. Press the applications key. Now, up arrow once and enter on properties. Next, tab to the shortcut field and put in a letter. The alt and ctrl are automatically added to the short cut. Just tab to okay and press enter. Now, you can open that program with alt + ctrl + the letter without that program pinned anywhere. If the program is just on your computer, this way to create a short cut will work. Take care and I hope you enjoy this.
