Subject: Re: windows 10 backup

I was referring to Microsoft backup schemes... I gave up on finding an accessible backup program years ago and this method works for me. It may not work for everyone but when everything you hold dear is on a backup and it just wont work for whatever reason all your docs,music and pictures are lost forever. only took a couple of these situations to find something foolproof... Keep in mind this was before large amounts of cheap cloud storage was available.
thats how I ended up with a complete copy of every thing on a FreeNas server with a RAID 5 array. A second complete copy on a network drive and yet another on a USB drive and... Yep one more on my computer in addition to the media drive that is in daily use. Losing several years of the family photos wont ever happen again.

I keep all my important stuff on a separate hard drive in my system and copy the whole drive once in a while. My really important data goes on the cloud. Dropbox, Google drive and One drive.
Here is how I do it.
On the second hard drive (Mine is Media)create the folders you want to move. I.E. Favorites, Documents, Downloads, Pictures and videos.
Now go to c:\users\your user name\
highlight the Favorites folder then alt +enter. Now ctrl + tab to the
location tab. Then tab twice to move folder. press it. Now shift tab once. press t for this PC press enter then press m for media (yours may be different) press enter then f for favorites. Now tab to select folder and press it. Tab to OK then press yes to move the folder to the new location.
Repeat for the rest of the folders. Now Windows will put everything in these folders from now on and the library links will go to these folders from now on.
If you use thunderbird copy the thunderbird folders from c:\users\your user name\app data\local and roaming.
Now if the main drive fails or you need to do a clean install. Just
copy the Thunderbird folders back to appdata local and roaming and all your info is there just move the folders to the Media drive again and it is like it was before the crash.
You will still need to install apps and setup your accounts.But with
Windows 10 that is fairly easy. Not like win 7. One of the few things
that is really better. :)

And Vocalizer Expressive

Hi there everyone. My name is Owais and I'm new to this list have some
questions regarding the topics mentioned in the Subject Line. I don't have
Jaws but will be getting it quite soon. Last time I tried Jaws with Internet
Explorer I loved it. Never have tried it with Firefox or Chrome. My prefered
Browser that I've used the most is Chrome. What's the level of accessibility
Jaws has with Chrome? When I tried Jaws with Internet Explorer I found that
there's a Keystroke which is Insert+F7 to bring up the list of links. Is
this shortcut for Ie only or is it for other Browsers as well? Lastly I
heard that in Jaws 18 Freedom Scientific added a new Vocalizer. I heard it
has a lot of Apple Voices. If that's true does it have Alex from iOs. I kind
of found Microsoft David similar to Alex but it's quite laggy is what I
find.
Sincerely,
Owais

It works perfectly fine for me in Jaws 18 both using Windows 7 and Windows 10 with Outlook 2016 via Office 365 download.
Make sure you don't have an update window hiding this, this has happened before and there is no way at all for Jaws to access this window, you really would need a sighted person taking a look.

Hi,

I have found that the best way for me to get the information you are asking for is to highlight the folder you want and then use the touch cursor to read the information.

First, start the touch cursor by pressing shift plus the numpad plus key.
Go to the bottom of the screen by pressing control plus end.
Now, use your left arrow and move back until you read all of the information you want.  You may need to move as much as four or five times to get all information.
When finished, press the numpad plus twice (quickly) to get back to standard mode.

Just adding a bit to the subject line so that those of us who do not use Thunderbird can just delete these rather than having to go in and figure out to what it applies and does not apply.

I'd guess that Window Eyes can extrapolate the information it needs to

Mario, I just unloaded Jaws, and loaded the latest Window eyes version
and it states the message number your at and how many in the list view.
For instance, your message was 3 of 17. Also, I'm using the current
version of TB. Thanks

Maria, what email client were you using at the time? In window eyes, it
would say one of what ever amount in the list. I wish Jaws worked the

Thanks.

Hi,

I have found that the best way for me to get the information you are
asking for is to highlight the folder you want and then use the
touch cursor to read the information.

First, start the touch cursor by pressing shift plus the numpad plus
key.
Go to the bottom of the screen by pressing control plus end.
Now, use your left arrow and move back until you read all of the
information you want.  You may need to move as much as four or five
times to get all information.
When finished, press the numpad plus twice (quickly) to get back to
standard mode.

Re: amount of messages

 

Here is what I get when I press Jaws Zkey+Numpad 3 in Outlook, this works in all my Inboxes and other mailboxes (I used speech history to copy this):
Items in View 55
Unread Items in View 54
Progress All folders are up to date.
Connectivity to your server. Connected to: Microsoft Exchange
Zoom 100%

Sieghard

I just tried this and it only gives me the number of unread emails.
when reading a few emails, I'll shift tab back to the inbox which should have the number of unread emails without doing this touch cursor "dance".

Re: amount of messages

 

It works perfectly fine for me in Jaws 18 both using Windows 7 and Windows 10 with Outlook 2016 via Office 365 download.
Make sure you don't have an update window hiding this, this has happened before and there is no way at all for Jaws to access this window, you really would need a sighted person taking a look.

Pandora and my windows 10 system sounds seem to be ducking when jaws runs. pandora was very very low until I shut jaws down to switch to NVDA at the end of the 40 minute demo time.  did I switch something on by accident. how do I turn it off in jaws.
