I like macrium reflect, but you need eyeballs to restore from the
recovery media, but this is true of all of them pretty much.

I assume that recreation may not work at all - I hope it never is

desired.

Hi,

  Mal Ware bytes is not an anti virus program but it is excellent for malware and various other problems.  Windows Defender is a strong anti virus program and while paid ones may have stronger points Windows Defender does a good, job of protecting as long as one is not foolish in their internet travels.

Hi,

You can use malware bites, it is about 90% accessible, and mostly useable, and it is a very strong anti-virus software, most prefer it ove others. Yes windows defender is the most accessible, but if you want a better antivirus, that is accessible 90% of the time and is much more secure than windows defender, I would go for malware bites.

I’m wondering if windows defender is still the best antivirus software to use with jaws or if there are now other packages that are accessible now. I figured I’d ask because some time has passed and things might have changed. Thanks.

Press the combination of keys control plus windows plus alt, then press the page up  or page down for a permanent  speech rate that stays even when you shut down the PC.

Malwarebytes, while an excellent product, is in no way a substitute for a full security suite.  Subject matter experts all over the place take great pains to emphasize this:

Malwarebytes Free review | Tom's Guide

I use and like Malwarebytes Free (and know about premium), but, in the words of a Quietman7, a computer security expert on BleepingComputer.com who's got a great reputation, says of Malwarebytes 3.0 and later, "can be used to replace your existing anti-virus or serve as an adjunct anti-malware solution since it lacks some constructs that a traditional anti-virus application employs."

Anything that lacks some constructs, and particularly some of the most recent ones in Windows Security, that Malwarebytes does means it should be an adjunct, not a sole primary, protection.

Hi,

 

1.      Hit Windows to open the search box and type in startup, and hit enter. Make it one word with no spaces.

2.      Tab through and hit the spacebar to toggle the various apps listed on and off.

3.      Hit Alt  F4 when you are done. There is no OK button.

 

Hopefully that will fix it.

You can do it on the fly with CTRL windows key and either page up or page down. Another way to do it is through the startup wizard.

moderated Re: Changing color schemes in Zoom Text

 

I no longer have ZoomText at hand, but I believe if you bring up the ZoomText UI with CAPS LOCK+CTRL+U, then open the Color option with CAPS Lock+C, you'll be presented with all the various color options.  I can't recall what the default is as it's been several years since I last tutored on ZoomText.

All the ZoomText Documentation is available here:  https://zoomtext.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018649052-ZoomText-User-Guides

I got those commands out of the User Guide.

an easier way is to press and hold control+windows+alt and down while continuously press page up to raise the rate or page down to lower the rate. this makes the change permanent and global.

Insert+J for the Jaws menu.
Arrow down to Voice and press right arrow.
Hit enter on Voice Adjustment.
Tab to the option to set for all contexts, then tab to the rate. Make your adjustments.
Tab to OK and hit enter, and probably tab to OK and press enter again.
It should stay the same unless you have other voices set with different rates.
Like the Jaws cursor voice, etc., that appear under the All contexts setting.
