Re: CD-DVD drive

 

CD/DVD drives are usually not included on many laptops because a lot of the smaller ones are too small to fit one and of course even desktops often don't have them any more because hardly anything comes on DVD any more. Yes, you can still buy Office for hundreds of Dollars, but most people nowadays choose to pay $69 or
$99 or whatever the various Office subscriptions cost and that way you are always entitled to the latest Office update and on top o fit you get 1 TB of OneDrive storage. If you buy 1 TB of Dropbox storage you pay at least the same or maybe more for just the storage.

Re: How do you unprotect?

I think using the f6 and tabbing to "enable" and hitting enter whas worked at least since Office 2007. It only unprotects the document you are currently using but that I the way I prefer to do it. I don't want to turn off "protected view" for everything.

Thank you for your reply. I tried dictionary manager, and I can set a custom sound for punctuation marks, but when I try it out, the sounds are very unreliable. I can hear my sound being played only in 50% of the times. Moreover, if the punctuation is in the middle of the sentence, Jaws doesn't pause the speech and there is no particular order in which the sound is played.

Hi Mario,
I only have Jaws 2018 and thanks to your info, I found them in:
"C:\ProgramData\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2018\SETTINGS\enu\SOUNDS"

I don't know that I'll ever do anything with this, but it is fun to know about. Someone at Freedom Scientific must have been a Victor Borge fan.

For those who do not know that name, he was an excellent pianist, but also a very funny comedian who had a great routine about phonetic punctuation.

Right, but if one wanted to use a custom sound, it would be necessary to
know where the folder is, unless there isn't one and they are simple
part of the program.

Richard, the sounds may be unique to JAWS because most, if not all, come
from the VFO employees and are probably used in particular features of
JAWS). but they're plain old wav files (nothing special).

I just took a look at this. Quite interesting. You hit add, then tab

I'm curious, where do those sound files reside?

Are they part of the Windows sounds, or unique to Jaws?

Hi Ann,

Once you're in the gmail inbox;
Press control + Y
Arrow down once and you'll hear "left bracket gmail right bracket closed"
Press right arrow and you'll hear "open"
Now you can arrow down and find the other folders such as trash, etc.

Hope this helps ......

this is helpful. However, getting to the inbox isn't the problem. When I
press control+y I can get to inbox, junk mail, and perhaps one other folder,
but not sent items, outbox, deleted items. Sometimes I can tinker and get
there, but I'm not sure how it happens. I need to open up the GMail

I myself have four e-mail accounts configured in Outlook, and

1. From within any mail folder, press Ctrl y to open the folder tree view.
2. Use first-letter navigation to navigate to the Gmail account in the
tree view.
3. Press right arrow to open the list of folders for the Gmail account.
4. Down arrow or press i for inbox. In all the years I've used Outlook,
I had to down arrow only once for the inbox, but your student's setup
might be different.
5. Press Enter, and you will be taken to the message list.

Re: dvd-cd drive

Carol Smith
 

Yes, that is the way it works. I paid about $1,400 for a very nice Dell computer and they installed a very cheap laptop drive that probably costs about $20. And, being a laptop drive, I can't change it out for another one because it it is part of the front panel and it does not have enough space to put a standard one in it, even if I wanted to.

Hi Nino,

 

It will depend on how you are using the virtual machine.  I am using VMware Pro to run a copy of Windows 7 and and an additional copy of Windows 10 on my labtop.  I run the virtual machines with JAWS 40 demo mode mode.  If you plan to use JAWS in a virtual machine for longer than 40 minutes, consider investing in a USB dongle to authorize either machine.

 

Hope this helps,
