Hi, I was about to say something that someone else already stated but maybe please don't forget to perform the basic things that help to keep your computer operating the best it can. disk cleanup, and disk defragmenter, also don't forget to if you have windows defender to perform a complete scan of your system to make sure that you don't have any viruses. some times, you even might want to make sure that you delete you search history as well.

Sieghard, will this apply only to the folder in question, or system wide?

The technique I mention makes the result universal.  Some people may prefer to be able to toggle this, that's why I ask.  Mine are set to show all the time, everywhere.

don't use sleep mode. grin
many times the drivers do not re load properly from sleep mode
and windows can get pretty flaky if you never do a complete shut down at least once per day.

Hi, Michael. It sounds like you need to do something with your sound drivers in the computer. Either they got updated by mistake, and you need to roll them back to what they were before, or, you need to update them yourself if they weren’t updated.

Re: With FF64, Firefox is automatically bookmarking to the “Other Bookmarks” folder

Hi, Peter. Try CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to save your bookmark. When I tried this, it allowed me to choose names and folders.

Subject: With FF64, Firefox is automatically bookmarking to the “Other Bookmarks” folder

 

Hello Group,

 

I recently noticed a change when I try to bookmark a web page. I have FireFox 64.0 after I forced an update from v52.

 

I used to use the ctrl plus d hot key,  modify the name and , then tab to the bookmarks folder list.

The default item on the list was “bookmarks”. Then I would tab and select the “done” button.

 

Now, when I use ctrl plus d and wait a few seconds, I hear:

   Alert, saved to library

 

The page is saved to the folder: “Other Bookmarks”.

 

Can I turn off the automatic saving to a library?

How can I change the default back to “Bookmarks”?

 

I would like to take my time to decide the folder and then select the “done” button.

 

Thanks,

 

Peter T


Question About Sound Schemes

Dani Pagador
 

Hi, Everyone.
Using JFW2018 with Win10 and Word2016. I need to proof a document and
have changed to the Proofreading with Attributes and Fonts--can't
remember its name. The scheme only seems to work in SayAll mode. When
I read word by word or line by line, JFW doesn't announce things like
bold or italics. Am I missing something?

Thanks,
Dani

Re: Google support phone number

 

Google is a big company so for what product or service? Do you mean the Google equivalent of Apple or Microsoft Accessibility? If so you are out of luck, there is no phone support.

You can go to the following website and send your request by email or start a chat session:

 

Google Accessibility Support

How To Get File Extensions To Show In File Explorer

Tom Behler
 

Hello, again, everyone.

 

I am continuing to set up my new Windows 10 computer, and have discovered that file extensions are no longer read in file explorer.

 

I find this info to be very useful, and would appreciate if someone could tell me how to re-enable this feature.

 

I’m now using Jaws 2019 here.

 

Thanks!

isn't it true that WLM and Outlook Express must be reinstalled every time Windows 10 undergoes a major update?

 

I can't speak to Outlook Express, and would never, ever, suggest that anyone still use it.  It's been a security nightmare for years now.

WLM coasts along from Version to Version of Windows 10 just like any other program I have installed.  I don't know if it might be removed if one is updating from Windows 7/8/8.1 to Windows 10, but I'd suspect it might be.  I've always installed after Windows 10 was already in place and it has never been removed at a feature update.

Re: 2 JAWS problems

Dan Longmore
 

Both of these issues sound like settings that need to be changed under the "View" tab. Especially in Outlook. Just a place to begin checking.
Memory can be an issue especially if you are using other programs at the same time. If Outlook is used in IMap or through Office 365 there is a bit of a delay in reading new mail but no delay should be seen while typing.

When my former workplace switched over to Office 2016 I did notice huge lag times in Outlook. Getting more ram for my workstation did seem to help. It seems ridiculous that an e-mail programme coupled with a screen-reader should need so much ram to operate efficiently, but there you go. If you have 4gb (the minimum to run Windows 10, if I remember right), consider upgrading to 8, or even 16.

As for the Word issue -- might be a long shot, but what is your view set to?

Subject: 2 JAWS problems

Hi All,

I use JAWS 2018, Win 10. The 2 problems are:
1. In Word, I use Word 10 because 16 has some bugs, it says sometimes:
"use your reading keys to read the text." and then JAWS starts acting sporadically. It does not delete words when I press back space and becomes generally unresponsive. Only solution is turning JAWS off and on. This keeps happening every few minutes.
2. In Outlook 16, when writing emails, there is a noticeable lag in the responsiveness of JAWS. it takes a minute to type down what I say and so on. I have to write my mails in notepad and then copy-paste them. Thoughts?

Best,
Rahul

Hello, everyone.

 

Recently, when in Outlook 2016 on this Windows 10 computer, I get an anoying clicking sound whenever I try to enter an address into the “to” field of an Outlook e-mail message.

 

I believe this is a Jaws issue, since the sound resembles the clicking sound you get when in the manual forms field mode on internet web sites.

 

Does anyone know how I can get rid of this clicking sound in Outlook e-mail.  I don’t find it to be necessary, and it is rather anoying.

 

I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2018.

 

Thank you!
