Re: JAWS Not reading full line with up and down arrows

Richard Turner
 

1. Have you made sure the screen is maximized?
2. Is some other window open, like an update process or something?
3. If this is on the same computer, how long have you tried to have two versions of word coexisting? That is generally a very bad idea from what I have been told by I.T professionals.

Re: Searching for accessible registry cleaners

 

Due to a recent "link breaking" error in the previously posted link, I'm reposting the link to the article itself:  Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools

Re: Searching for accessible registry cleaners

 

This will be my only post on this matter, and it's to say, don't bother.

Registry cleaners are virtually useless at best and can cause a lot of system instability at worst.  Microsoft does not recommend their use nor does any "tech geek" group I'm aware of.  Most, in fact, specifically warn against their use.  I shall quote something frequently posted on Bleeping Computer by one of our Global Moderators who's also a security guru:

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons.

Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools

Be sure to read Microsoft's support policy for the use of registry cleaning utilities in that topic...Microsoft does not support the use of registry cleaners.

Re: now i have a problem with copying new password from webmail to notepad?

JM Casey
 

Why do you want to copy the password?
Passwords are designed, normally, so that you can't see them as you type them. I believe that normally you can't just select the text of a password and paste it somewhere else and expect it to just show up. That'd be a pretty huge security risk.

Don't tell me you've forgotten what it actually is?

Hi list members, what I don't understand is why I can't copy a password from web mail to notepad? I tried to copy the password but when I tried to paste it, I noticed that nothing had been copied? Is there another way that I can perform the same action and get the results that I wanted?

Dear List friends,
 
I am searching for registry cleaners which are accessible with JAWS. If anyone knows from where I can get the software, request you to kindly share the URL.
 
Also, if anyone has any JAWS scrips or tips to use the latest version of C Cleaner, kindly share the same.
 
Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

Re: Changing Character set in which Thunderbird emails are composed

 

This is achieved via the Display Options, of all things, rather than the Composition Options, which is where I'd expect it.

1. ALT+T, O,O then hit enter - Bring up Tbird menu, Options, the "Options" option.
2. Right or Left Arrow until you have focus on the Display options.
3. Gain focus on the Formatting tab (which should have focus by default) then navigate to the Advanced button (only one, and related to font) and activate it.
4. The Text Encoding section has two items:  Outgoing Mail (direct access to the dropdown, ALT+U) and Incoming Mail (direct access to the dropdown, ALT+I, which seems inconsistent about working, but it's right after the Outgoing Mail dropdown)

You have to select from the list of encodings available for each to set what you want as the default, then navigate to the OK button to begin OK-ing your way back out through the various settings panes.

Changing Character set in which Thunderbird emails are composed

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi. I am asking this question for a friend who uses the Thunderbird email program. How does one change the character set in which email is composed either from unicode to iso-8859-1 or the reverse? I don’t use the program, so I would need to know exactly where to tell him to navigate in the options to change the character set.

 

Thank you.

Re: Help With Google Drive

Dan Longmore
 

Hi,
Try the download direct from Google Drive rather than using the Google browser. Even after download you may have quirks, it is not perfect but most times works with JAWS. Sounds like you are having download problems rather than a JAWS conflict.
Use www.google.com/drive

Hope this works.

Hi good people:
I've been having problems for some time now, trying to get google drive working on my computer.
I've downloaded the program several times, but I get the same result.
The problem is that when I attempt to launch google drive on my computer after download and installation, it just doesn't open.
After a long time of waiting for it to launch, I get a feedback saying "welcome to backup and sync not responding."
I've always downloaded the program using the google chrome data browser.
Please does anyone know of a solution to this problem?
I hope the problem is well understood.
Hope to read a response and a solution.
From Ibrahim.
