Hi Jean,

Thanks so much.
I was adding a space between "user and password2". Now it works.

Best to you.

Why on earth would you want to disable it? Can we never learn
something new and adapt?

Subject: Can I get start up sound back in Windows 10 and the action center

Hi everyone



1. After I have upgraded one of my computer from Windows 8,1 to Windows 10,
the operating system not longer play the start up sound.



On Windows 8.1 I could make a fix via the Windows registry database so the
sound came back, but the fix dont work in Windows 10.



Can I get the start up sound back again, so I as blind can hear when
Windows
10 is ready?



2. What is your experience with the new build action center in Windows 10,
and can I disable the action center?



Thanks in advance.



Regards,

Anders

Re: Removing lock screen from Windows 8.1

Whatever you do to launch the run dialogue. E.g.:

press the Windows key wich brings up search.
Type run and press enter. You are now in the run dialogue.
Then type

control userpasswords2

Press enter, and you will be on a checkbox about whether users need to use a user name and password to log on to the computer.

This doesn't seem to work for me. Do you mean to press "the windows key plus
r" to launch the "run" window from the "home screen" where the tiles for the
programs are located, or from the "desktop". Either way, I can't seem to get
past the "run" to get to step 3.
Any advice would be helpful.

Are you meaning the logon screen so that the computer boots without having a user need to sign on each time? If so, then that's easy.

Subject: Removing lock screen from Windows 8.1

Hello list,

I’m trying to set up a Windows 8.1 machine and have more or less got
everything set up and am now trying to get rid of the lock screen that pops
up when turning on the desktop, but am running into difficulties.

I go through the prompts of adding the snag-in as apparently whatever group
policy that is needed was not included in my Win 8.1. When I go through the
steps however, I get an error message more or less saying that this snag-in
may not vve used with this version of Windows 8.1. To manage accounts for
this computer, use the user accounts tool in the control panel.

This isn’t getting me anywhere though.

I’ve poked around online and it seems that this issue isn’t unusual.

Anyway, most solutions entail adding the group policy via the snag-in that I
explained can’t be installed.

I also want to disable the windows hints, but again, same issue.

Has anyone delt with this issue and if so, how did they resolve it?

Using Jaws 16 if it makes any difference. And yes, I know I can also try
upgrading to Windows 10, but don’t wish to do so at the moment



Any help would be appreciated.



Regards,

Re: Tutorial on Outlook 2013 with Jaws?

JAWS has a help topic on Outlook, which you can access by pressing Insert F1
twice quickly from within Outlook. Among other topics, the help covers
recommended Outlooks settings for the most accessible experience.

No, it's free if acquired within the first year. I don't know how updates will work, but this is something different for Ms--a long-term platform, rather than an OS which will be superseded within two years or so

Good morning,

It may be too soon to ask, but I know some of you guys probably have been playing with or exploring already.
Has anyone successfully and independently installed and used Windows 10?
I've heard/read a couple of different things about not being able to install it without Narrator or something along those lines.

Also, does anyone know about Windows 10 being free for a limited time before we'd have to actually subscribe to it? I don't like that idea. What would that mean...One day I wake up and my computer wouldn't work any more until I pay money for the Windows service?
I'm a bit confused about that.

Re: Windows 10

 

Hi Jim,
A few things:
* Yes, you'll need to use Narrator. But before installing Windows 10, remove
JAWS first (all versions except 16.0.4350).
* You might be thinking of Windows 10 as a subscription service. The good
news is that it isn't - once upgraded within a year, Windows 10 will be
yours forever.
Cheers,
Joseph
