Re: thunderbird update gone bad

Randy Barnett <randy@...>
 

You have to go to c:\programs\Delete the Thunderbird folder. Do this in ProgramsX86 also. Then u have to go to Folder options for windows. Then click the advanced tab then deselect hide protected files... Then you have to go to c:\users\your user name\apps and data\local\ and delete the thunderbird folder then back to apps and data then go to roaming and delete the thunderbird folder there... This will require you to reconfigure everything as if Thunderbird was never installed...


Re: Do I need Windows Creator?

 

It is simply the next Windows 10 update. You won’t have a choice but to upgrade sooner or later so you might as well do it. Just make sure you have the latest Jaws 16 update installed first.

If anything I think my laptop has become a bit snappier and  more responsive with this update as Microsoft adds some features but also optimizes things.

what is this new windows creator and how does it work with jaws?  I  use jaws version 16 and i'm not sure about windows creator and how to use it?  I  have windows 10 but i'm not sure whether i'll get the same speed in terms of system performance or would there be a lot of things that i'll have to do to this computer in order to use it for music production?  These are some questions that I have and i'm not sure how I should approach tuning up my system for music production using windows 10 with 32gb of ram and an i7 processor which is a quad coar system.  Thank you for any information that you might have concerning my questions.

With the change in update paradigm that comes with the "Windows as a Service" philosophy the question, "Should I update?," is moot.   You will update.  You can sometimes choose to postpone for a given period, but you will update.

When it comes to the major updates like Creators Update one should always expect the unexpected, at least a little of it, if you're in the first wave of machines updated.  I'm a professional tech geek so I intentionally forced my machine to update on April 5th so I'd have a leg up on any issues my clients might call about.  There have been no issues of importance at all for me (but I am sighted and don't use a screen reader as my primary interface to the computer) and reports seem to indicate that there have been few, not none, but few, issues for screen reader users as well.

I always encourage folks to wait until their machine is updated via the normal Windows Update process rather than doing what I did, and did only for professional reasons.  There has already been an update to the Creators Update that bumps the dot number on the build number.  You're far better to be on the later phases of roll out, where the early kinks will have been resolved, than to be in the first cohort.  But, if you're in the first cohort my feeling is accept that on the upgrade cycles when it happens.  It's a roll of the dice which machines get grouped into the cohorts during major update roll outs.

Subject: Jaws script for switching between applications

Hi all,

I am typically running several application: IE, CMD, Cygwin and Visual
Studio. I am looking for a keyboard shortcut to switch to a particular
application.

For example, I would like to have a keyboard shortcut that would switch me
to a cygwin window. I don't want to press Alt-TAB multiple times and look
for the right window in the list of running applications. I am using braille
display, and alt-tabbing takes too long time. I switch applications often,
and I am looking for more effective way to switch between applications.

For example, I would love to have a script that would sweitch me to the
cygwin window no matter what application is currently active and no matter
how long ago I used cygwin the last time. Then I would love to assign a
keyboard shortcut to this script, something like
Ctrl+Alt+Shift+C, for example. And I would have a peace of mind,
knowing that wherever I am, I can always switch to cygwin in just a single
keystroke.

Windows key + numbers. This is what I'm currently using. For example I
have Windows key + 2 switches me to IE. The problem with it is that it
is frustratingly unreliable. They only work about 80% of the times,
and for the remaining 20% they set the focus to the task bar.
Sometimes the success rate goes down even lower than 50%, at which
point I have to reboot my computer. I've had this problem on two
computers, one of which had a brand new windows. By the way, does anyone
else experience the unreliability of this shortcut, or only me?


Alt-tab is NOT what I'm looking for, since it switches to the last
used application. I would like to have one shourtcut for IE, another
for MCD and so on, so that whenever I want to switch to IE I would
press that shourtcut just once. Pressing Alt-tab multiple times
surely can
switch me to any running app, but this way is too slow, I am looking for a
more efficient solution.

Insert+f10 is NOT what I'm looking for. The reason is the same as for
alt-tab: it requires finding the right app in the list.

Ctrl+Alt+Letter is NOT what I'm looking for. You can assign this type
of shortcuts in the properties of applications on the desktop. But
that would start a new application instead of switching to an existing
one.

So:
1. Is there a way to make windows key + number keyboard shortcut more
reliable?
Or:
2. Is there a way to assign keyboard shortcuts to specific apps?
Maybe a jaws script or something?

And again, I would like to reiterate what I need. I whish I could switch to
cygwin with Ctrl+Shift+Alt+C, and switch to internet explorer with
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I, and so on.

I am not afraid of hacking, so if there is either a jaws script, or any
other hacky script, that can switch me to a particular application and that
can be assigned to a keyboard shortcut, please let me know.

Re: Jaws script for switching between applications

Mario
 

Tony, if you have desktop shortcuts for the programs you want to use,
and shortcuts assigned to them, for example, cygwin is control+alt+c,
pressing the shortcut will switch you to that program, even if it's in
the middle of doing something. I don't know if this will work for the
command prompt. the only time I think it won't work for what you want is
if the program is a multi session program, meaning it can be used even
if it is open already.

have you tried this, and does it work for you?

Re: Jaws script for switching between applications

Peter Holdstock <ptrholdstock@...>
 

Hi. Regarding the windows key and number solution. Are the applications that you're wanting to use pinned to the taskbar? If not, could the reliability problem you're having with that solution be because if you haven't already opened the applications after logging onto windows, they won't already be in the taskbar and therefore won't have a number assigned to them and if you then open them in a different order each time, they would have a different number assigned to them as Windows numbers them according to the order they are pinned to the taskbar and then for any unpinned applications, the order that they are opened. Have you tried unpinning everything from the taskbar, then pinning each application back to the taskbar in the order that you'd like to use them. Then the shortcut numbers assigned to these applications should hopefully remain consistent.

press that shourtcut just once. Pressing Alt-tab multiple times
surely can switch me to any running app, but this way is too slow, I
am looking for a more efficient solution.

Insert+f10 is NOT what I'm looking for. The reason is the same as for
alt-tab: it requires finding the right app in the list.

Ctrl+Alt+Letter is NOT what I'm looking for. You can assign this type
of shortcuts in the properties of applications on the desktop. But
that would start a new application instead of switching to an existing
one.

So:
1. Is there a way to make windows key + number keyboard shortcut
more reliable?
Or:
2. Is there a way to assign keyboard shortcuts to specific apps?
Maybe a jaws script or something?

And again, I would like to reiterate what I need. I whish I could
switch to cygwin with Ctrl+Shift+Alt+C, and switch to internet
explorer with Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I, and so on.

I am not afraid of hacking, so if there is either a jaws script, or
any other hacky script, that can switch me to a particular application
and that can be assigned to a keyboard shortcut, please let me know.



I'm using the latest Windows 10 and Jaws 17.

Thanks
Tony

Jaws script for switching between applications

Tony Malykh
 

Hi all,

I am typically running several application: IE, CMD, Cygwin and Visual
Studio. I am looking for a keyboard shortcut to switch to a particular
application.

For example, I would like to have a keyboard shortcut that would
switch me to a cygwin window. I don't want to press Alt-TAB multiple
times and look for the right window in the list of running
applications. I am using braille display, and alt-tabbing takes too
long time. I switch applications often, and I am looking for more
effective way to switch between applications.

For example, I would love to have a script that would sweitch me to
the cygwin window no matter what application is currently active and
no matter how long ago I used cygwin the last time. Then I would love
to assign a keyboard shortcut to this script, something like
Ctrl+Alt+Shift+C, for example. And I would have a peace of mind,
knowing that wherever I am, I can always switch to cygwin in just a
single keystroke.

Windows key + numbers. This is what I'm currently using. For example I
have Windows key + 2 switches me to IE. The problem with it is that it
is frustratingly unreliable. They only work about 80% of the times,
and for the remaining 20% they set the focus to the task bar.
Sometimes the success rate goes down even lower than 50%, at which
point I have to reboot my computer. I've had this problem on two
computers, one of which had a brand new windows. By the way, does
anyone else experience the unreliability of this shortcut, or only me?


Alt-tab is NOT what I'm looking for, since it switches to the last
used application. I would like to have one shourtcut for IE, another
for MCD and so on, so that whenever I want to switch to IE I would
press that shourtcut just once. Pressing Alt-tab multiple times
surely can switch me to any running app, but this way is too slow, I
am looking for a more efficient solution.

Brian, while changing the view sort to threaded, I find that JAWS does not read any thing when tabbing into the message list of any folder that has been created by the user. so, the message list for local folders are not read. the message list for the inbox, drafts, etc still read as usual.

I am using JAWS 16 and I think this problem also occurs when using NVDA, so it's not a JAWS 18 only problem. I would imagine users of JAWS 17 are affected also. yes, it's being worked on and I hope the fix comes out soon.

I've just confirmed that this is a JAWS issue with unthreaded view, at least using JAWS 18.0, Thunderbird version 52, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit Version 1703.

It makes no difference whether the Thunderbird window is maximized or not. If the view is unthreaded JAWS will not read anything in the inbox list of messages. Switched to threaded it behaves normally.

This behavior is not exhibited in NVDA. I did not try Window Eyes nor Narrator, as this is enough to confirm that the issue seems to be tied to how JAWS interacts with unthreaded view in Thunderbird. I would definitely get VFO tech support involved.

Hi Keith

Michelle Stevens here,

I used Linda mainly on my Iphone which the app was quite then accessible. I have not tried it with Jaws it sort of could work with NVDA.

It depends how your library have set it up.

Have a look at Linda on the iphone. Not sure if they have an app for the other phones.

Kind regards
Michelle

This is free access. Not a free trial. With a library card (in my case Los Angeles public library) one can create an account with Lynda through the library and not have to pay. Similar to the New York Times and WSJ. Other libraries offer different resources, but the LA public library among other services, offers these.

No unsubstantial as it’s a paid service.
Anyway, Just thought I’d ask if anyone’s used Lynda.com and can
comment on the service or site’s accessibility with screen readers
(in my case JFW 18)? I know that most likely, a lot of courses will
be visual in nature, but that aside, is it usable?
