You really would not want to permanently disable Windows Defender (or a third party security suite, were you using one).

I can tell you how to temporarily disable it, should that become necessary, but suggest you read the page, Manage Slack connection issues | Slack, before we'd go there.

Does anyone know how to turn off the windows defender firewall, or make it so that I can run the new slack and scripts for JAWS?

Subject: Converting/Saving audio media

 

Hello,

 

I am currently going through a fair number of cassette tapes, containing spoken conversations, as well as  audio CDS many of them containing various XM radio music programs and specials.

Using JAWS, what programs are available where I could insert the CD in my PC and convert them to MP3 files, where I can store multiple CDS on one single MP3 disc.

Related to this issue, I have an older CD player though I am not sure if it has the capacity to create MP3 files. I would guess there is a program that can help make this happen. In truth, I really have not converted any media to an MP3 format, so would appreciate some direction/assistance from those of you who are familiar with this process.

Regarding the cassette tapes, I have an old cassette deck, which I could use to transfer specific content onto an MP3 disc. Again, assistance with regard to this process is really appreciated.

I would really like to preserve some of this content, both spoken word and audio as it is a part of my personal history.

 

Best to all, Justin

There doesn't appear to be any way to do this from within the browser,
so following the steps below should get the job done:

The following message may be encountered after using these steps, and
although annoying, causes no harm, and can be ignored.

The Windows Club is a very reliable source, but this particular article is
out-of-date (by its own admission, saying that the Autocomplete settings
have moved, and they have)

But, first, I can tell you I'm running Chrome Version 80.0.3987.149
(Official Build) (64-bit) , and these settings do not make the slightest bit
of difference for autocomplete in the URL/web address/omnibox (pick your
favorite term).

When you open Settings, the You and Google section is first, and the Sync
and Google Services settings are under it. When expanded, you will find the
Autocomplete Searches and URLs toggle. I've got mine toggled off, but it
still does it. This could possibly be because I have not recently deleted
all browsing history, but I know when I have it still eventually "comes
back".

Autofill is related to web forms, and it's in the Autofill section, which
comes next, and there is autofill for passwords, payment methods, and
addresses and more (and in this case they don't mean web addresses).

did you follow the link provided?  I'm guessing that this allows a free license to the latest version through June 30th, then you would go to the $90 per year subscription model.

I have used ExpressRip from NCH Audio for many years and it is extremely accessible and user friendly.  www.nch.com.au/rip/index.html

Using the latest Jaws, and the latest version of Kindle for PC, I am
able to use standard Jaws reading commands just like reading a Word
document.
Of course, the book will read with whatever Jaws voice you like to
use, no propritary reading commands or strange voices.

I bought a new book recently that would not allow download; so I couldn't
use Codex, but because I bought the Kindle book I could get the Audible
version for about half price, so I did.
Otherwise, I only use Codex and then read it on my iPhone with Voice Dream
Reader.

For me, when I thought I was stuck using the computer, control+t worked well
enough. It would start over a sentence or two before the place I stopped,
but not much more than that.

I bailed on that as soon as I found the deal on the audible version though.

Just my 2¢ Worth.

I have probably twenty Kindle books, and if it weren't for Codex, I couldn't
read any of them. All I can make my Kindle software do is read with the
default Microsoft Core voice when I pres CTRL/T. If I choose to read in this
way, I can't pause and restart the reading. It always starts from the
beginning again. Using my braille display is also useless. What on earth am
I doing wrong?

There are Jaws scripts for GoldWave.

 

However, I did the bulk of my CD ripping with iTunes and backed all that up on an external drive.

 

But if you are not an iTunes user, then any of those other programs will work fine.

 

We decided we didn’t need 700 physical CD’s taking up space, because, as my wife says, “There are no luggage racks on a hearse.”

I don't use Goldwave, but "that other screen reader" has a Goldwave add-on.  I have no idea whether scripts for JAWS exist for Goldwave or not.

I decided to do a quick check on Audacity with regard to MP3:  "Audacity 2.3.2 replaces all previous versions for Windows, macOS and Linux.  Improvements: Audacity now includes the LAME mp3 encoder. Previously, due to now expired patents, you had to download it separately."

Nermin is absolutely correct that Windows Media Player can rip commercially produced CDs, which employ cda audio "under the hood," to MP3.  That's how I do it.  There are lots of other options as well, but WMP is probably the easiest.

I also love and recommend Anyburn for creating CDs.  That being said, it is far more important that you keep backups of this newly digitized material.  If you do not currently own an external USB backup drive, and are not taking routine full system image backups of your system, along with separate user data backups, now would be the time to institute that practice.  Burnable optical media is notorious for being unstable over long periods of time, not to mention that optical drives are rapidly becoming a thing of the past.
