Hi. We just subscribed to office 365 over the weekend and have a month
to try it and see if we like it. One thing i did was turn on the
option to autosave to one drive, but how do you turn that off if you
want to and can anyone give us any other tips to get going with it or
are there training tips on the website for jaws. thanks in advance.

application software using its native interface.  And unless you believe the

much easier when you already know how without using unnecessary intermediary
software.

How, exactly, did you accomplish this? I tried it a while back and
was totally unsuccessful, but would like to try again.

Thanks.

Norma,
I am using a similar setup to yours. Mine was a bit unstable at first but,
cross my fingers, it has been stable for a couple of years.
On the other hand, we tried a separarte USB card in my wife's desktop and it
never functioned successfully.
There are too many variables to get a handle on.
Good luck.

How can I get Jaws and Windows 10 to retain my settings? I need to keep

I have downloaded System Volume View but haven’t installed it yet.
Would working with this program to set profiles for different

Hi, I'm using jaws 2021 and I've had no trouble regarding this matter so far; however,  in connection with reputation based protection, I want to say that, it's a vexing matter, no doubt, but a necessary one because if you ever got  your PC infected with a Trojan that is redirecting your browser, this feature will prevent these usually harmful pages from loading.

Hi, Stan. I don't think turning on reputation-based protection has
caused any conflicts with JAWS 2021 for me. The reason I left
reputation-based protection turned off is that I didn't need my
antivirus and my browser telling me about supposed threats, and causing
me not to be able to download files which I know to be harmless. I can
get along with only my antivirus telling me about supposed threats. Once
I get the file, I can scan that one file with Windows Security, and make
sure it isn't a threat.

I will write you privately, in case you would like me to tandem into
your computer, and talk over with you what you want to be left turned
on, and what you want turned off. I will also give my phone number,
since that will facilitate talking with you as I work with your computer.

Yep.  The only thing I'll add to that is if you have reputation-based protection turned on, and it's flagging something you know to be safe, e.g. the JAWS installer itself, then you really need to report this.

Were it to be something like the JAWS installer, I'd report the situation to Freedom Scientific or the appropriate software maker, as their contacts with Microsoft to rectify this sort of issue are more direct than any end user's is.  But it doesn't hurt to report it via the Feedback Hub to Microsoft as well.  I've had false positives rectified, usually in less than 24 hours, using each of these methods at one time or another.  Sometimes the "best guess" of security software is wrong, and it will tend to err on the side of being more aggressively protective when uncertainty exists.

Hi, Mario. They don't get rid of virtual ribbon because there are quite a few JAWS users who still aren't comfortable using the ribbon, and they want to make it as easy for these people as possible, so they'll keep using JAWS.

You cause yourself more convoluted steps to go through if you use them.
Virtual Ribbons was introduced in Jaws 12 as a way of dealing with the
new ribbon structure.
Since both Jaws and office have improved a lot over the years, it is
best to just learn to use them as they are.

If you use Jaws you can enable what is called Virtual Ribbons, they
convert the ribbon menus to a more traditional menu. However, I highly

What makes sense for many does not mean it makes sense for all and I am sure there are still plenty of Jaws users who like the virtual ribbon feature.
I also wonder why Vispero does not get rid of the Research It feature in Jaws, the only time I ever use it at all is a few times a year when I want to look up an area code and while I admit that is relatively simple using Research It, it really is not any more difficult using Google or I can simply ask my Google Home speaker, but then of course not everybody has a Google speaker or other smart speaker.

That's good to know.  But it's sad to realize that Microsoft is the only major player to have created an accessible database management gui driven app and not the other major players like Oracle or the open source alternatives like MYSQL or PostGreSql.  Cheers!

Jaffar,

 

SQL Server Management Studio is very accessible. I use it all the time.

Actually, the only nearly accessible gui driven database management app that I know of is mssql studio, from Microsoft, but I personally don't use it, so I can't really comment.  I also know that Eclipse has some database management related Plugins, but I don't use them either.  I have reached the stage of being so comfortable with managing databases with the command line that It really doesn't bother me one way or the other.  But it would be good if someone comes up with an accessible gui driven database management application though.  Cheers!

Hi.  I work with Oracle when I have to do Database Management projects.  Unfortunately the only way to access it is through the CLI.  I have no idea about access where Toad is concerned.  I do not think there is any accessible GUI clients to help us manage databases and it's been like this since time imemorial.  Cheers!

Hi,

 

Has anyone figured out how to get TOAD for Oracle to work with JAWS, for viewing database tables, views, and querying them?

 

Thank you,

Mike

Hi, Tim. I will give you a link to convert .oga to .mp3 below. I like this conversion site better than the one provided by Sieghard, because you can convert a few more files per day without a paid plan, and without reaching your maximum number of files per day, before you reach your limit.

If you use Jaws you can enable what is called Virtual Ribbons, they convert
the ribbon menus to a more traditional menu. However, I highly reecommend
you simply get used to the ribbon menu, it's here to stay at least for now
and in my opinion it's better to learn how to deal with it.

Hi my wife and I got the family plan for Microsoft Offic e 365 and we are
learing how to use it with JAWS for Windows.

Are there training tutorials on Freedom's page? Also, when using word, is
there a way to get rid of the ribbons if you don't want to use them?
