Ok, Adrian. I'll give these steps a try.

Bill White has also sent me similar instructions.

Tom,

It has been a few years since I followed this method, but I'm copying the
steps below along with the annotations I made to myself. I believe the basic
instructions come from David Bailes. If this doesn't work for you, please
post again because there are other methods.

how to reveal system tray icons in Win7.

Open start menu properties with Win key, escape, alt-enter.

In the first dialog, tab to and press the Notification Area Customize
button. I found that the list of options appears when I shit-tabbed once.

The first item there is "Always turn on all icons." I pressed the spacebar
on it, then tabbed to Okay.

I'm not finding the safe to remove option in my system tray when I access it
with the jaws key and F11.

I'm using Jaws 16 with Windows 7 here.

I suppose I could just use the eject option in windows explorer via the
application key and down arrows. But I'm now hearing that there is a
difference between safely removing and ejecting a device.

I'd like to find a single safe to remove option for removing a thumb drive
or an external hard drive if that is available.

I got the impression that Tom's system tray isn't showing the "safely
remove" option. If that's the case, Tom, you might post again with that
specific question. Several sets of instructions have been posted in the past
on how to get JAWS to reveal it.

Dave, I've heard much the same thing. But, ever nervous about corrupting
files, I do the following:

Close the window showing the drive of the SD card, etc., that I want to
remove. (This is consistent with your closing all applications using that
card, disc, etc.)

Go to system tray with JAWS key+F11.

Press s until "system tray" is verbalized. On my system (Win7, 64-bit),
that's just one press.

Press enter, then arrow down until the name of the item to be removed is
spoken. Press enter again.

Then JAWS verbalizes something like "Safe to remove" and I feel comfortable
ejecting the item.

Tom,

I've only used it once, and found it irritating and useless. When I copy or
paste to a USB Thumb drive, I just wait until I'm able to navigate through
the list of files on that drive, and then I know I can pull it out.

If you're using an external disc or hard drive, you might want to make sure
that there are no programs running that are accessing the drive before
disconnecting -- that might be the one and only time I'd consider using the
feature. Use JAWS+F11 to get to the system tray, arrow to "safe to remove"
item and press enter.

Hello, everyone.



I am sure this may seem pretty elementary to some, but I actually have
gotten varying opinions on the need to use the "safely remove hardware"
option for USB devices such as USB thumb drives, and USB external hard
drives.



So, I have two questions:



1. Is it still necessary to invoke the "safely remove hardware" option
when using any of these USB devices? I have heard that in later operating
systems like Windows 7, this is not as necessary as it used to be.

And



2. How does one easily get to the "safely remove hardware" option, if
it would be a good idea for me to use it?

I am using Windows 7 and Jaws 16 here.



Thank you!

Turning Off Screen Echo when Deleting with DBT11.1

Dani Pagador
 

Hi, Everyone.
I'm using JFW13 and Duxbury 11.1. Where do I need to go to turn off
the key echo feature re deleting text? i.e., how do I get JFW to stop
echoing the characters being deleted when I hit the delete key in
DBT11.1? I looked at the keyboard manager but didn't see anything that
toggled the option.

Ideas?

Thanks,
Dani


Re: Safely Remove Hardware question

Tom: Here is how I get to the safely remove feature in the system tray in my windows 7 64 bit machine running jaws 16.

From desktop, windows key B lands me on notification chevron button in the
system tray. Hit enter, arrow up to a button identified as safely remove and hit enter. I then get two options, one of which is safely remove.By the way, if you do not have a device connected at the time, there will not be a safely remove option available.

Re: How to Get an "Applications Key" on a Lenovo Laptop?

Ed Marquette <marquette.ed@...>
 

This depends on which Lenovo model you are using. You can
sometimes swap the insert key and the applications key. Since
insert is the typical insert key, that may not be entirely
desirable; however, with the laptop keyboard, the capslock key
becomes the JAWS key. Depending upon personal preference, this
may be a good way to get both a JAWS key, which you absolutely
need, and an applications key, which is pretty handy.
The insert key, when it is not the JAWS key, is pretty useless.
Though, I would love to replace the print screen key with
something useful. I don't think I've ever found a use for the
print screen key.

Right click though is WHEREVER THE mouse happens to be. The
application menu is triggered where the keyboard is focused.

You could of course route the jaws to PC cursor before doing the
right click but that is even more cumbersome than shift+f10.

Re: How to Get an "Applications Key" on a Lenovo Laptop?

Russell Solowoniuk
 

Hi,

My Lenovo has an applications key, but, it didn't have an insert key, so,
what I did was create a file to edit the registry. What the file did when I
ran it is to remap the print screen key to function as an insert key. I
can't recall exactly what the content of the file needs to be... I Googled
remapping keys and found an article that gave instructions to do what I
wanted to do. It can be a little complicated, so may not be what you are
looking for, but Google it and see what you find.

Cheers,

Russell

can someone make a key on the Lenovo act like the Applications Key?



Thanks,

Richard

Re: keystroke in outlook 2010 to add sender to contacts?

Adrian Spratt
 

Ann,

Just to be sure, did you use the applications key? The "add to sender" option doesn't appear in the right-click menu. It's one of those cases when they aren't identical.

Also, did you try Paul's later suggestion of going to the "From" field?

That it's in the applications/context list means it's an MS control, not a JAWS command.

I do SHIFT + TAB back to the From field. Once I get there, I hit the
application menu and select the "add sender to outlook contacts" option. It
works, but it'd be nice if there was a better way.

I imagine this would make a nice beginning JAWS script project. If I put

Re: keystroke in outlook 2010 to add sender to contacts?

Adrian Spratt
 

By the way, if you press alt-1 just once, JAWS will read the field but not move focus there. Ditto for alt-2 (date), etc.

Thanks for posting this method of adding an address to contacts. Fortunately, it works on my machine.

Cool, neat trick. Thanks for posting it.

BTW, I just went through the keyboard manager for Outlook 2010 and didn't
see a hotkey for adding sender to contacts, so I don't think there is a way
to do this with a single keystroke in stock JAWS.

Best option so far:
1. Alt+1 twice quickly to move to the "from" field.
2. Open context menu, then select "add sender to outlook contacts".

What do you do to open Context Menu? Is that Shift F10, Applications, Alt F.
I tried them all, got no context, so have to show my ignorance.

I went to Options and did not find that in 2013, move folder and a couple of
things, but not add sender; probably a way there too, I just didn't find it.

Re: keystroke in outlook 2010 to add sender to contacts?

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

OK, Paul, Joseph the Free Tech Guy taught me, and I tried it with yours to
be sure I got it right. In the Inbox, by the mail you got from the person,
Hit Control C for Copy. Then hit Control 33 to go to Contacts, and right
there, hit Control V. The e-mail address is there. Then you have to go
through the fields like company and all that until you can get to save or
OK, I forget, but you know what you do when you have put in the information.
Do that, and you have it.

Best from,

Carolyn

Re: Safely Remove Hardware question

Mike:

This actually seems a lot easier than finding the safely remove option in
the system tray, so I will give it a try.

Thanks very much!

Tom, I do use the eject option when removing a USB device like a flash drive
or an external hard drive. On my Windows operating system, if you go to the
actual device under your computer folder, and then press your Apps key, you
can scroll down to the eject option. You should be able to remove it that
way, if you don't see the option to remove it in your system tray. If you
press enter on the eject option, you should hear JAWS tell you that it is
safe to remove the device after a few seconds. Hope this helps!

Subject: Safely Remove Hardware question

Hello, everyone.



I am sure this may seem pretty elementary to some, but I actually have
gotten varying opinions on the need to use the "safely remove hardware"
option for USB devices such as USB thumb drives, and USB external hard
drives.



So, I have two questions:



1. Is it still necessary to invoke the "safely remove hardware" option
when using any of these USB devices? I have heard that in later operating
systems like Windows 7, this is not as necessary as it used to be.

And



2. How does one easily get to the "safely remove hardware" option, if
it would be a good idea for me to use it?

I am using Windows 7 and Jaws 16 here.



Thank you!



Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan

Re: Visual studio with jaws

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Those are good clarifications, thanks for posting them.

Regarding a more accessible compiler, one option would be to use the Cygwin
package, which provides gcc, gdb, and make: command-line compilers,
debuggers, and project management. This may or may not meet your programming
needs. It's a more linux-like environment. If you need to use Microsoft
packages as part of your programming, then you should probably stick with
Visual Studio. You can use Microsoft's compilers from the command line:
There is nmake.exe for managing projects, and cl.exe is the compiler, etc.
But I don't recall a command line debugger. So if you need to do debugging,
I think Visual Studio is your only option.

Again, you might get more info by posting to the program-l mailing list. I'm
a newbie when it comes to developing software as a blind person (though I've
been doing it as a low vision person for years). Program-l has lots of blind
programming expertise.
-Paul

-----Original Message-----

My experience is that jaws works very well with the console. You do need
to
go into jaws cursor mode rather than PC, but other than that reviewing
what
is in the console is easy.

One thing to note about Paul's description of how VS runs console
programs, the hit enter to continue bit is only displayed if the program
is
_not_ run in the debugger. If you just use the debugger but don't have a
breakpoint then the program will run and then exit and the console will go
away.

To deal with that you can either add a breakpoint at the end of main or
call
system("pause") yourself before returning from main.

Using links in PowerPoint

Pat Pound <patpound10@...>
 

I have the latest Jaws version, and am trying to use a PowerPoint presentation that someone gave me. On one of the slides there is a link to a video. Jaws will not detect that it is a link, and I cannot find a way to activate it with Jaws on. Any advice?
