Hello,

Is this just a one time reminder for the latest FS cast?

I never received an FS cast dialogue box before. Is it now part of JAWS, to remind us.

I'm just wondering, is anyone else getting this  after updating to
the latest JAWS 17x.

Re: Is there a utility to automatically uncheck the master volume mute button?

 

If I may ask, what is the make/model of the computer that you're using and what version of Windows are you running?

Most laptops have a mute/unmute available via a function key but the specific function key varies.  Many desktops do as well if you have a media keyboard that includes volume controls on the keyboard.  There are also ways to access the system volume that I just posted in a thread entitled, Windows Sound Control Keystrokes?, over on the Blindtech forum.  If your sound is muted it unmutes as soon as you start turning the volume either up or down via the method discussed in that thread.

JAWS and Office 365 web mail

Michael Mote
 

Hi folks!  My company has made the switch to Office 365.  I wondered if anyone has had any success using the web based email client.  I have tried it, and so far, not so good.  I do have access to Outlook, and I use that for my main email client, but others in my organization may have to utilize the web based version from time to time.  Can anyone here offer any helpful hints when using it?  Thanks!

 


Re: Is there a utility to automatically uncheck the master volume mute button?

Mario
 

you can install QuickMix if you can find a legitamit and safe download, but QM won't work in operating systems above Windows XP, and besides, I don't think it's available anymore. the author stopped developing it some years ago.

you can try PowerMixer or Sound Volume View from actual solutions. PM has a small cost (less than $20 USD), SVV is free. there is a third free program but the name escapes me, sorry.

Tis one called quikmix or something like that. You can save several
versions of it with different sound settings. You can set the easiest one
ti run to turn on sound and set the volume where you want to start.



I have a Bluetooth keyboard with a mute button I find very handy to turn the

Re: No-frills cd ripper

Tom Behler
 

Thanks, Nicole.

I appreciate the re-assurance.

I used the software a number of years ago, and found it very intuitive.

So, I'll probably just do as I have always done when I can get back to
working with my CD collection.

It's pretty straightforward, and it uses standard windows controls for the
most part. You need to have an email address to access the CDDB functions,
but that's a breeze to set up. If you want to change the destination folder
I've found that with later versions you can't do that in the preferences
dialog, but you can edit the cdex.inin file to change that and it works
fine. From anywhere in the program you can press F9 and it'll start a rip,
and if you haven't selected any files to rip it'll rip the gamut.
There may still be a guide to it on www.jfwlite.com (or maybe that's a .net
or .org site, it's been so long since I've been there) but you don't really
need it because the program is so simple to use.

Yeah, CDex does the job well, pulling down CDDB data and making it easy. I
used it to rip over 500 CD's when I did this project several years ago, and
I used it last month too, so it still works well.

Lately when I go on some web sites jaws says, “Read only”.  After I hear that I can’t access any of the text I want to read.  Is there a way to get rid of “read only”?  Judith


Re: Best version of CDex to use with JAWS?

Nicole Massey <nyyki@...>
 

I've not encountered any great improvements. The preferences structure is
changed, but that's the main thing I've noticed different from 1.51 and the
1.7x versions.

While we are on the subject of ripping software, I have been using version
1.51, and it works fine. Is there any reason for me to get a newer version?

I would do so if the quality of the MP3 conversion is improved. What I
have now seems good, but I suppose you can always try for better!

can someone give me a safe URL to download CDEX 1.79, because VIPRE keeps blocking my attempt.

ah, so it has been updated. for a long time, version 1.70 was the last and it's development stopped, but now it's back on track.

The encoder used for MP3 files also gives good output, so I keep going back

done to be nice because then it's easy to know when it'd done with the rip.
