Re: Ripping a CD

 

I've used Windows Media Player (WMP) for years and still do under Windows 10.

Unless you have a very rare album or you are currently sans internet connection it will go out and retrieve the album information, including all track names, for you.

I just use the Rip option and, in fact, have WMP set up to automatically rip CDs when I put them in rather than play them.  I tweaked the rip settings to use 320 Kbps bit rate mp3 encoding as the default as I'm wanting to create MP3 files.  Other file formats are available.

Once you set up everything as you want it for your first CD, if you then set up WMP to automatically rip, you just keep putting in the next CD and it will automatically rip it.  I can count the CDs on less than two hands that have ever not come up with media information including the album art.

Usually if an internet connection is available, it will suggest the album and artist for you, and you don't even need to do the song titles.

Well, in media player it should be under untitled in the artist view. once you find it you will hav to name it with the mp3 editor. I havent used WMP for this in a long time so bear with me...
Once you have found the songs right click (shift + F10) then arrow to edit song information or something simular. press enter then fill in the boxes for artist and song.  If this isnt working for you just google "how to rename songs in Windoes media player". This will give you tutorials on how to do this.

Once you have fixed the artist and song info you will have to go to your music folder and find them and rename the files as they will all be "untitled.
Go to your c: drive then users then your user name then music. Look around in there until you find the untitled cd. You will have to play each track to figure out witch one it is then rename it useing F2.
In the future make sure you add the artist and song info when you rip the cd it is way easier that way! :)

Why would you want to spend the money and time learning and running two totally different OS's?Nothing between the two are compatible. You would have to buy two versions of your software. Windows for instance would be a 100.00 purchase then Office for each OS and so on. Just doesnt make sense to me. :) Not saying that that matters People are free to do as they please! :)

Ripping a CD

Elaine Young <hidden_spring@...>
 

Hi all, I am a real novice here so be kind and basic with me, please.


I am trying to figure out by hit or miss how to rip a CD with my Windows 10 computer and Jaws 18. I have managed to rip the CD and I know it is in my Windows Media player. I actually found it there once, by hit or miss, but for the life of me, I can't find it again. Can someone help me understand the files and folders or whatever it is that I need to navigate through to find this ripped music CD?


And then I will want to name it, it is untitled which I assume I can do with the F2, and then....  can I cut/copy  and paste it to a thumb drive or even a SD card so I can play it on something other than my computer?


This is all new Territory for me and feels so intimidating.


Thanks for any help you can give me!

Or of course,you could use a tool like Sharp keys,to change the keyboard layout to the windows style, this wont affect your mac side of things.

Hi, Tom. Here is what the JAWS help file says about smart navigation.

Smart Navigation
Smart Navigation offers a more efficient way to navigate in web-based
applications, tables, and forms. Use this combo box to select the level of
Smart Navigation to use.

When set to "Controls," most controls are treated as single units when
navigating by character or word, like moving through a menu bar with RIGHT
and LEFT ARROW. When set to "Controls and Tables," controls are treated as
single units when navigating by character or word, while inside a table, the
ARROW keys move between cells. In either case, you can always get to
traditional navigation such as character or word, by pressing the Say
Character, Say Word, or Say Line commands twice quickly so you can explore
the text of the control in more traditional ways. To return to Smart
Navigation, just press DOWN ARROW, ESC, or TAB.

Anytime you are using Smart Navigation, JAWS will work in what is referred
to as "Document Presentation Screen Layout". This offers a much more natural
movement through pages the way they appear on screen. As you navigate by
line on web pages, you will also notice a sound indication if the current
line contains one or more links which would generally be displayed on
separate lines when you are not in Smart Navigation. This sound will help
you identify that a link exists and give you a chance to pause to hear about
it or use TAB or the ARROW keys to move to it.

Smart Navigation is off by default.

Having recently switched from WE, I am finding learning Jaws a bit of a

In the startup wizard, there are three options for the smart navigation.The
first is "off", the second is "smart navigation controls only" with the
third being "smart navigation controls in tables".

Can you inform me what the second and third options do?

Hi,

How can Jaws be made to move one character at a time when on a web site?
Currently if the right arrow is pressed, the entire word will be spoken but
the spelling or details etc can not be examined like it could be by moving
one character
at a time.

The same goes for the contents of a cell in a table. How can the cell
contents be examined one character at a time rather than having the whole
cell read at once?

How can Jaws be made to move one character at a time when on a web site?
Currently if the right arrow is pressed, the entire word will be spoken but
the spelling or details etc can not be examined like it could be by moving
one character
at a time.

The same goes for the contents of a cell in a table. How can the cell
contents be examined one character at a time rather than having the whole
cell read at once?

Thanks

Tom

Outlook Question

Becky Tsurumoto
 

Hi!

I have a new computer, using JAWS 18, Windows 7.
I recently switched from using Outlook.com to Outlook 2016.
I'm encountering a new problem:

When I'm typing a report and want to begin a new line with a5, for example,
Outlook is automatically capitalizing the a. How do I stop this from happening?
Any help will be appreciated.

Becky


Re: moving by one character

Thanks John, that was the problem and now have smart navigation turned off.

Having recently switched from WE, I am finding learning Jaws a bit of a
steep learning curve.

In the startup wizard, there are three options for the smart navigation.The
first is "off", the second is "smart navigation controls only" with the
third being "smart navigation controls in tables".

Can you inform me what the second and third options do?

Thanks
Tom.

Maybe you have smart navigation on -- to temporarily turn it off use
insert-x while on the web page.

What is the reason for buying a Mac? If you just want too run windows on it you will spend way more money going this route and wont see any better performance.

Hi there everyone. Thanks for answering my question. If I get a Mac and install Jaws on the Windows side how can I make my keyboard work like a Pc? Or would you recommend to get a Microsoft Keyboard? What would you say about the Touch screen Support in Jaws with regards to the Mac? Is it sensitive enough and if I get the Mac with a Touch Bar what is the recommendation in this situation for installing Jaws?

Sincerely, 
Owais

I second everything said here. I’ve had two different MacBooks that were bootcamped one had Windows 7 and now the current one has windows 10. On both I loaded a key mapping program because I wanted the option of having keys like home, end, and delete as separate keys the behaved the way they do on a PC. I did not find a need to remap the control, alt, or Windows key. I just got used to it the way it is laid out on the computer it’s self. Jaws on my computers uses the caps lock key as the JAWS key. Again no problems with this. There are a couple of key mapping programs you can download them for free and test them out for yourself. When you switch to the Mac side of the computer the key mapping program has no effect. Also if you’ve never done this before be aware that you have the option of having the bootcamped windows side of the computer as the default boot up rather than the Mac.

I will make a comment that I’ve observed about doing this from the windows point of you. That is it it is a very stable computer. It boots up fast and shuts down quickly. It is extremely rare that anything locks up on this computer when I’m in windows. I also have done a lot of jaws script writing using both of these computers and there has never been a problem with jaws.

Hello there,
I have been using win10 on bootcamp with jaws for a while now, there are no issues or limitations as such,but the keyboard layout will follow macs layout,that is fn,control,option,cmd, in windows case,that key would be the win key. which may take a bit getting used to.
Or of course,you could use a tool like Sharp keys,to change the keyboard layout to the windows style, this wont affect your mac side of things.

Hi there everyone. Is there anyone on this list who has Jaws installed on Mac with a Virtual Machine like Bootcamp running Windows? How do you find it? Are there any limitations? Would you recommend installing it that way? Does the Keyloard work properly?

Sincerely,

I thought with the switch to Intel you can install windows directly?
