Re: Google Drive

I just signed up but haven't played around yet. I see it this way it's
5 GB for free which adds to the 14 GB free cloud storage I already
have. so between dropbox, skydrive, Mweb and Google drive I now have
19 GB and it's free.

Re: JAWS 13.0.852 Update Available

Cristóbal
 

If you're using Windows 7, you've got to create a restore point via System
protection. It's for the entire system.
How To Geek gives a quick and easy to follow explanation on how to do it.
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/3195/create-a-system-restore-point-in-windows
-7/

If you're on XP, then if memory serves, you can do it from within the system
restore option itself.

Re: No, Thanks -- Live, Free Telephone Helpfor setting-up Peachtree Complete Accounting

epierce@...
 

I would encourage you to lobby them to get 64 bit Windows 7 for you, especially if you need to run something beastly like Peachtree.

There are some disadvantages to a 64 bit OS. 64 bit drivers for older peripherals such as a printers/scanners can be harder to find than 32 bit drivers. Some legacy software might run better in 32 bit "compatibility" mode.

If you do not have to worry about old legacy software or old peripherals, 64 bit and >= 6GB RAM is probably an excellent choice for people seeking performance improvements.

At some point in the future 32 bit software will be obsolete, just as 16 bit and 8 bit software is now almost completely obsolete.

If I remember correctly, Windows Server 2008 does not have a 32 bit version.

Dave,

I have no dog in the fight with Peachtree, never used it, have no interest.

But, please rethink the 32 vs. 64 bit OS issue and adding RAM.

An upgrade from 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM is less than $40 for your E6520 (see
below for exact pricing and Dell Part#). Be careful to get new RAM that has
the same speed rating, or better, than what you have now (if you call Dell
with your laptop's Dell Service Tag#, they can help make sure).

I would encourage anyone using windows 7 for business, or similar, purposes
to use the 64 bit version of software when possible, with more than 4GB RAM
memory.

For a standard Windows 7 PC (i5 processor), the performance improvement
between 32 bit with 4GB RAM and 64 bit with >= 6GB is significant.

From the Dell web site, standard pricing:

DELL 2 GB Dell Certified Memory Module for Dell Latitude ... E6520 Laptop

Dell Price $17.99

Dell™ Branded memory offered ... is fully compatible and supported by Dell.
Memory offered now may differ in speed from the original system memory but
has been qualified to work in the system. ...

Pardon me? A 32-bit operating system only uses 3.2 G of any amount of RAM

Chris,

You are indeed brave. I'm just crazy. And if there's no substantive
improvement, then perhaps "no harm, no foul"? Or perhaps the line used by
some in the medical profession: "Do no harm". A relief release, perhaps. A
placebo?

I could go on, but I'm even tiring myself.

Installing peachtree worked fine for me

Tim McNulty <timinco88@...>
 

Hi Richard

I am running windows 7 pro 32 bit. I have 6 giga bytes of ram on my computer. I do not think my computer "smokin", but it is a good one!

Dave's comments below are accurate. I am glad to hear that the Guide is being revised as you described below.  It is true that peachtree is not a toy, so, anyone who thinks it is something that can be played around with will be frustrated.  Also, before I began to install it, I had my girlfriend (sighted) help me with those few initial setup requirements. I always have trouble with "step a", but now that I am at "step b" (peachtree properly installed) I think I am well on my way.

Hope this helps...

Tim

Hi Dave!  Your comments are welcome and valid.  In fact, some have already
been addressed but are a few days away from rolling-out.  Please allow me to
address each as follows:



About the download time for the Peachtree application trial, well, of course
as you know that is purely an arithmetic, bandwidth thing.  Indeed, the
download comes straight from Peachtree's website.  Even Sage says there that
it is a big file.  It is a huge download because you are getting, basically,
the complete application file; not merely a shell or "express" version of
it.  That is important also because the trial scripts need to interact with
the whole, "real" application for a user to really get a feel for the
robustness of the solution.



Next, about the Installation Guide, I agree with you about its ambiguity.  I
previously made revisions to it for just that.  Those revisions are
imminent.  Moreover, you are further correct about making it clearer to
load-up the sample company (Bell Weather Garden) to make some of the initial
settings.  I will gladly roll-in your comments about making it more
specific.



We have also revised the Guide to be a bit more specific about system
requirements; in particular, lots of RAM.  Personally, my laptop has eighth
gigabytes of RAM.  We recommend that amount.  I have observed that, with six
or less gigabytes of RAM, the system bogs-down.  This is a natural result of
the demands on any system put upon it by running both Peachtree and JAWS.
That is heavy.  My own experience on my laptop is that it operates plenty
fast, and has never crashed.  But, again, a smokin' computer is a
prerequisite.



Also, sighted or not, registering with Peachtree over the Internet is and
has always been shall we say difficult technically.  In fact, we do not
recommend doing it that way.  Rather, it is so much easier just to call
Sage's toll-free number and get the registration/customer numbers.  You are
right about the Guide lacking those instructions.  It will be incorporated
into it now.  These instructions are, however, in the "Tips and Tricks" file
(not that same-named section of the Guide) on our website here:



http://www.scriptsforjaws.com/peachtreetraining.php



Finally, installing and setting-up an application as robust as Peachtree is
not a novice endeavor to be sure.  Like installing any commercial-grade
application (e.g., Windows 7, Visual Studio, etc.) a little help to get us
past the first step is rather normal.  Indeed, I need someone to help me
install even the most simple of programs: being blind I cannot read those
silly "product key" numbers! 



However, we totally get your point, and are going to do something about it.
From now on, those who purchase the scripts will get free, live installation
support direct from Virtual Vision Technologies
<http://virtualvisiontech.com/content.cfm?page=11&topic=63> .  We want to
offer you this support right now too!  Also, we can do even more for you.
You can e-mail me directly at:



richardbmcdonald@scriptsforjaws.com



So, again, we really appreciate your feedback.  What more can we do?  How
can we make it better?



Best regards,

Richard

Re: JAWS 13.0.852 Update Available

Dave...
 

Gary,

Oh, and here's the list. I guess the sports fans will again be happy until
ResearchIt breaks again.

Enhancements in JAWS 13.0.852 (April 2012) region start
enhancements in JAWS 13.0.852 (April 2012)
The following is a list of items addressed or added between the final JAWS
13.0.718 release and the JAWS 13.0.852 posting.
. Improved how JAWS works in ARIA menus in Internet Explorer and Firefox.
. A new DAISY book on using the Convenient OCR feature is now available. To
install this book, select Check for Updates from the JAWS Help menu, then
choose
Convenient OCR DAISY Book.
. The NBA, NHL, and MLB ResearchIt lookup sources now include the city for
each team in the results just like with the NFL lookup source.
. Resolved issues with the NFL and Business Search ResearchIt lookup sources
not correctly returning results.
. Resolved a reported issue where in some cases, characters would be missing
when typing in Microsoft Word.
. Addressed issues encountered in WPF applications when selecting text and
navigating by paragraph.
. Resolved an issue with the GetColumnText built--in script function not
working as expected in Microsoft Excel.
. JAWS now announces the character being deleted when you press the
BACKSPACE key in the Express version of Visual Studio 2010.
. When US International is set as the default input language in Windows 7
64-bit, addressed an issue where the Typing Echo setting in JAWS was not
honored
when entering text using 32-bit applications such as Microsoft Word or
Internet Explorer. In addition, JAWS would echo the characters in password
edit
fields.
. In Internet Explorer, If an ARIA live region is inside of an iframe, JAWS
will now read the live region as expected.
. Resolved an intermittent issue under Windows 7 64-bit where JAWS would not
close properly when attempting to shut down or reboot the computer. When
this
occured, the computer would need to be manually powered off.
. When performing any of the JAWS table navigation keystrokes in a message
in Lotus Notes, JAWS now indicates that table navigation is not supported.
This
functionality is not available in Lotus Notes.
. Resolved a customer reported issue where Excel 2010 on Windows XP would
unexpectedly close when attempting to navigate in the Names Manager dialog
box.
. When navigating a form in Microsoft Word that contains dropdown combo
boxes, resolved an issue where braille Structured Mode was showing mnu
instead of
cbo when the field is closed.
. Resolved an issue in Microsoft Word where the message "press F1 for help"
was not being flashed in braille when focused on a form field that offers
associated
help. If the F1 Help option in Quick Settings is set to Read with formfield,
the help message for a form field is also now flashed in braille.
. Resolved an issue where only the last word was underlined in braille after
pressing CTRL+A to select all in a multi-line edit field in Firefox.
. Addressed an issue in Microsoft Outlook where JAWS was saying "bogus radio
button" when using the INSERT+B command to read the Appointment Recurrence
dialog box.
. Addressed issues of JAWS not properly identifying Move-up and Move-down
buttons in various Microsoft Office dialog boxes.
. Resolved a customer reported issue where the message "computer braille"
was being announced after every keystroke when composing a message in Lotus
Notes
7.
. Improved JAWS reading when navigating in ARIA treeviews in Firefox 11.
. Resolved an issue with navigating in a Microsoft Word form that uses a
table where pressing INSERT+TAB was not reporting the current position in
the form.
This command worked correctly when used in a table that was not part of a
form. In addition, the contents of form fields are now announced before the
table
position information.
. Resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+H in Lotus Notes to list the
available hot keys was displaying command descriptions, but not the
associated keystroke.
. JAWS now correctly recognizes the datatable=0 tag attribute in Firefox.
. Resolved a customer reported issue where JAWS was not working properly
with the Nuance Enterprise Express Editor, a medical transcription plugin
for Word.
. Resolved an issue using JAWS with the Key Note Gold speech synthesizer.
. Updated the JAWS help for Microsoft Access to clarify which keystrokes
only work in Access 2003.

Dave,
You're a little slow this morning! After all of the problems you've had
with JAWS updates in the past, you should get the joke! Although, I'll
admit that sometimes when FS plays an update joke on us, it isn't very

Re: JAWS 13.0.852 Update Available

Dave...
 

Gary,

I just copied the list of so-called enhancements in this release, and if the
list on the FS site is true, it's also a mess of snakes. I don't see a
single enhancement that has any substantive meaning or helps in my various
complaints.

But I'll likely download and see what damage it tries to do, and make sure I
make a restore point first.

Hi: I just started relying exclusively on word 2007 a few months ago and notice when I draft a document jaws is telling me that there are "section breaks". Can someone tell me what these do and how I can get rid of them with jaws 13? Thanks very much.

No, Thanks -- Live, Free Telephone Help for setting-up Peachtree Complete Accounting

Dave...
 

Richard,

Thanks for all the nice feedback and offers to improve. I was somewhat
surprised that this was released as it was, given what changes will now be
done. But I guess the end result is good for all others who may be
interested.

However I see that I'll not be installing this application any time soon for
this one comment you made:

"We have also revised the Guide to be a bit more specific about system
requirements; in particular, lots of RAM. Personally, my laptop has eighth
gigabytes of RAM. We recommend that amount. I have observed that, with six
or less gigabytes of RAM, the system bogs-down. This is a natural result of
the demands on any system put upon it by running both Peachtree and JAWS.
That is heavy. My own experience on my laptop is that it operates plenty
fast, and has never crashed. But, again, a smokin' computer is a
prerequisite."

*** end of clip ***

Then you are saying that this application requires a 64-bit smokin'
operating system to use. I must have missed that somewhere, or if it's not
specifically stated anywhere -- it certainly should be. Not everyone has
this, nor the 8G of RAM. MY order for a Cray computer has still not been
approved by my company.

It does explain why it brought my mere Windows 7 32-bit quad core 4G RAM
system to its knees yesterday, leaving a whimpering, slobbering TRS-80 in
its place. I had to rudely kill it all with the power button 5-second death
press. Then a 30-minute scan disc before my desktop reappeared. Not again,
thank you, on any of my Neanderthal 32-bit machines, thank you very much,
and sorry for the slight bit of sarcasm in my tone.

I've completely exorcised Peachtree and the scripts from my computer and
I'll wait to see what progress is being made with Intuit's products with
regard access.

Accounting


Hi Dave! Your comments are welcome and valid. In fact, some have already
been addressed but are a few days away from rolling-out. Please allow me to
address each as follows:



About the download time for the Peachtree application trial, well, of course
as you know that is purely an arithmetic, bandwidth thing. Indeed, the
download comes straight from Peachtree's website. Even Sage says there that
it is a big file. It is a huge download because you are getting, basically,
the complete application file; not merely a shell or "express" version of
it. That is important also because the trial scripts need to interact with
the whole, "real" application for a user to really get a feel for the
robustness of the solution.



Next, about the Installation Guide, I agree with you about its ambiguity. I
previously made revisions to it for just that. Those revisions are
imminent. Moreover, you are further correct about making it clearer to
load-up the sample company (Bell Weather Garden) to make some of the initial
settings. I will gladly roll-in your comments about making it more
specific.



We have also revised the Guide to be a bit more specific about system
requirements; in particular, lots of RAM. Personally, my laptop has eighth
gigabytes of RAM. We recommend that amount. I have observed that, with six
or less gigabytes of RAM, the system bogs-down. This is a natural result of
the demands on any system put upon it by running both Peachtree and JAWS.
That is heavy. My own experience on my laptop is that it operates plenty
fast, and has never crashed. But, again, a smokin' computer is a
prerequisite.



Also, sighted or not, registering with Peachtree over the Internet is and
has always been shall we say difficult technically. In fact, we do not
recommend doing it that way. Rather, it is so much easier just to call
Sage's toll-free number and get the registration/customer numbers. You are

into it now. These instructions are, however, in the "Tips and Tricks" file
(not that same-named section of the Guide) on our website here:
