Re: How To Stop Windows 10 from Sharing Your Bandwidth With Others Without Your Permission

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Okay, I know this is a JAWS list, but, over time, I've seen references to System Access. I've flirted with free programs before, and always found them lacking. Could I find out more by entering System Access as a search term?

Russell and All,

I encountered the same accessibility barrier when trying to disable this feature. I assumed that "checked" means "on, while no status indication signifies "off." Can anyone confirm if this is in fact correct? I don't have System Access to verify myself. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance for your help.

Best Wishes,

Hi Mark,

Wow! I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but MS nevver ceases to amaze me with some of the choices they make! Why would this, to use the term loosely, feature, be turned on by default? If you hadn't brought it up here, I would have unwittingly been sharing my bandwidth with who knows who! Amazing!
Another confirmation that switching to the Mac as my main home computer 6 years agowas the right choice!

Just as an aside to this... when I followed your instructions to turn off this feature, Jaws only read the On/Off switch button as "checked" so it was really unclear as to what I was checking or unchecking. I unloaded Jaws and loaded System Access. System Access announced "Switch button On" and "Switch button Off", which helped me to know for sure that I was actually turning this feature off.

Thanks Mark for bringing this to our attention! You saved me much bandwidth, I'm sure! :)

Hello My Fellow Windows 10 Users,

You know, I was becoming less and less enthusiastic about Windows 10 as it does so many things, in terms of sharing our personal information, and now, it seems, even our band-width without our expressed permission, until I discovered how to control it's somewhat hidden options.

Please read the following, carefully, to discover how to disable this, in my opinion, very unwelcomed feature.

1.
Click the Windows 10 "Start Button" and select Settings

2.
Select Update & security from the Settings menu.

3.
Click Advanced options

4.
Click Choose how updates are delivered

5.
Finally, toggle Updates from more than one place to Off

6.
All done!

I haven't heard anything about this with windows 10 but in 8.1 I think you need to turn the touchscreen cursor on in order to review the screen. It may be the same in win10.

Try the touch cursor. I don't have time to write a long explanation just

Re: JAWS and Windows 10 issue

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Did you use JAWS KEY plus the letter R to switch between Application Window Restriction, Real Window Restriction, Current Window Restriction, Focus Window Restriction and Frame Restriction?

If these focus settings are unavailable once switching to your JAWS Cursor, the JAWS Cursor may not be available in Windows 10. I hope this is not the case.

There was some talk about removing the Unrestricted Window focus from the JAWS Cursor.

Hi, Jim. I'm still using JAWS13, and I have also updated to Firefox40. Not having any problems here. Could be dependent upon your version of JAWS, Windows, or something as yet to be determined. I'm hoping it is something about JAWS16, since it might work in the next JAWS update.

What do you like about Windows Live Mail? Does it have a calendar?

Worth the wait? (Was "What do I gain with Windows 10 as a blind person?")

Ed Marquette <marquette.ed@...>
 

I like Dave's approach.
In a surprising number of instances, I've had JAWS seemingly come
back to life after unplugging a sound card or device. Here I'm
talking about a USB sound card or a USB headset. Who knows?
This seems to work for some reason, but perhaps the activity of
just doing something makes the wait seem shorter.
Perhaps I'll try Dave's approach to see if it produces the same
results.

JAWS. Mind
you, if a good pair of eyes is ready/willing/able, not to mention
actually
present, I am not shy about asking for help in case something is
going on -
un related to JAWS.

However, when no "eyes" are around, it feels like the world has
been shut
off; so, I know what you mean by waiting for nothing. I usually
try to find
something else to do.

Jim,

Pretty much hit-or-miss. It would depend on the Operating System +
Video
Device Driver + JAWS Version + Program Version + Unknown Gremlins.

Very hard to duplicate symptoms with so many variables. I do know
that JAWS
16 tendency to close and reopen without any warning is a bit of a
thorn in
my side. There are times when it won't come back at all, and I'm
sitting
there with my hands poised, waiting for nothing.

Dave:

Very enlightening! For some reason, I never got around to, nor
frankly
considered, uninstalling previous versions of JAWS, and this may
have proven
to be "far-sighted" after all. I think that I may adopt your 3
most-recent
version strategy myself. However, once someone moves to Windows
10,
previous JAWS versions will not work - from what I gather.

However, it may be a while before I upgrade to Windows 10. So,
for now, are
there some applications that typically misbehave with the latest
JAWS
offering? Or, as with many things, it is pretty much a hit or
miss
situation?

Thanks.

Jim,

As to previous versions -- simply because the current install is
running
fine, it does not mean that it will run so with all applications.
I
occasionally run JAWS 15 when JAWS 16 is misbehaving in a
particular
program. I delete versions older than 3 major revisions back, just
to keep
things simpler. And I still have all the executables for last
revisions of
all major versions going back to 3.5. Of course that's just my
anal-retentive nature at work, having sufficient hard disk space
to justify
that level of insanity.

Don't mean to be "smart"; but, why would you want to use previous
versions
of JAWS if you have the latest version running successfully. I'm
sure that
there is a really good reason for it! :) :)

Windows 10 won't be free after a year. I believe the 2020 date
refers
to the
end up MS support. But for now, as Brad says, who has the time?
I'm
waiting
for the first service pack (MS always comes out with one) and
FS's first
rounds of fixes, all of which I expect will appear within the
year.

Hi,

I've been following all this Windows 10 stuff with great
interest, and
I just have a question (with a lot of background first):

So FS says you shouldn't use Edge, you should use Firefox or
IE. (I'm
doing that now in Windows 7.) You can't use the built in mail
program;
you should use something like Thunderbird or Outlook. (I'm
doing that
now in Windows 7.) And you should use Adobe Reader for PDF
documents.
(I'm doing that now in Windows 7.) Reviews I've read all seem
to
indicate that Cortana is iffy at best.

So why should I upgrade again? I'm not being smart; I'd really
like to
know if I'm going to gain anything other than having a new
operating
system that I have to use in the same old ways. The only
benefit I can
see is that Windows 10 will be supported beyond January of
2020, where
Windows
7 will not. Am I overlooking some wonderful new feature that
should
cause me to want to hurry and upgrade? Or does the old saying,
"If it
ain't broke, don't fix it," apply here? I'd really honestly
like to
know if JAWS users in particular are finding anything
beneficial in
the upgrade, or if it's just something fun to do to your
functioning
computer to see if it will still function.

P.S. Anybody on this list from Louisiana and thinking Cortana,
as in
mall?

Re: firefox 40

Brad Martin
 

I don't think I would. I think I'd probably uninstall the latest version, then install the older; and when you install the older, don't install the maintenance service, or you'll get the new one right back again. If you have any bookmarks, you might want to back them up before uninstalling Firefox 40.

Subject: Learning JAWS scripting

Hi all. A few days ago, there was some discussion on learning JAWS scripting. I've started learning it myself, and wanted to post some thoughts.

First, I've decided to blog about JSL as I learn it. My blog page is here:
https://skewmatrix.wordpress.com/ . No advertisements or popups, just straight information about JSL whenever I learn something interesting. The "JSL #1" post enumerates the available JAWS Scripting Language resources that I've found. Please post comments if you know of other resources.

Second, I'm toying with the idea of starting an online book project about JSL, for example at wikibooks.com. The advantage of putting this book online as a wikibook is that the information would be much more likely to stay up-to-date and relevant; people could immediately correct any typos or mistakes; and of course the book would be free to all and readily available online. I have written technical books in the past, so this wouldn't be too much of a stretch for me. (I just need to learn it first. Ha ha.)

The question is: In light of the wonderful documentation from Freedom Scientific that is already available, what kind of content would I / we need to provide in this new online resource in order to make it worthwhile? What would you like to know about JSL that you can't already learn from the FS docs? Would we want something like a brief overview of JAWS scripting? Or maybe a "quick start guide" to get you up and running with the basics? Or possibly a "scripting gems" kind of book, with several examples of JAWS scripts? Or a language reference? Or all of the above? Of course, "we don't need this, the FS docs are fine" is also an acceptable response.

Any thoughts or comments... Thanks...
-Paul
