As for where to report a bug I'm sure you can look at amazon and go through their help files and it will tell you where to report it. 

I hadn't had a chance to check it out with another screen reader yet but I actually have experienced this with jaws. If when you alt tab back to Kindle you tab over 1 spot to library and shift tab back into the document your cursor will reappear. Also If you will remember to maximize the kindle window, you have to do it from your library it won't let you do it from inside the book, this doesn't happen.

Hi Craig,
the current version of Audacity, 2.3.3 should work fine with your new laptop. There's a guide for users of screen readers here:
http://vip.chowo.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/jaws/Audacity-2.3.2-Guide.html

There's a mailing list, Audacity4Blind, and details of how to join the group are given in the introduction of that guide.

Hi.
Reaper is not that much more costly than Goldwave at all.
It's definitely more powerful, versatile and so on.
But it's also much, much more complex piece of software. There is a
considerable learning curve if you haven't used serious DAWs before. At
least I find it so -- your milage may vary.
So again it depends on what you'd like to do. Goldwave is a good little
programme for single track editing and your money would be well spent.
However, if you are looking into doing serious audio work...multitracking,
complex efects chains, adaptability with various sorts of vst
plugins...Reaper may also be worth the investment.
If you're new to multitrack editing, you could certainly start with
Audacity. It is free and unlike goldwave it does have true multitrack
capability.

consider, there's also a DAW called Reaper that's said to be very, very

well, looking at the script source, it looks like they are the free script but with his "sprucing up" of it's performance. and he probably did a bit of touch ups here and there (the other files that make up the scripts).

I thought I'd let y'all know how I resolved my router issues.

I continued to experience the problem with my 5GHz band crashing, so I
decided to try a wifi 6 router. I purchased a Netgear Nighthawk. (I
don't recall
the model number.) And set it up with my wife's sighted assistance. All
went well except my Lenovo Flex laptop simply didn't see either the 2.4
or 5 GHz
bands. I called Netgear support and waited for literally hours to talk
to customer (dis)service only to get disconnected without a solution. I
wasn't going
to wait around for several more hours, so I returned the Netgear router
and purchased a TP-Link Archer AX50.

I encountered a few glitches with its setup as well, but I got them all
resolved. First, I had the same problem with the AX50 not being seen by
my Lenovo
laptop, so I had my wife help me set it up using her iPad. We had some
trouble getting our preferred password to work. I think the iPad was
substituting
some special characters which the router didn't like.

Since my laptop was the only device that didn't want to connect to the
network, I figured it was probably a driver issue, so I went looking for
a driver
update. I first checked Windows update, but it said my driver was up to
date. I then went to the Lenovo website, but couldn't find anything that
looked
like a driver update for the wireless adaptor in my Flex laptop.
Finally, I scoured the Intel website and after much hunting around, I
found a driver update
for my wireless network adapter. I installed it and restarted my computer.

At last, all my devices connected to my new wifi 6 router, including my
Lenovo laptop. And so far, (crossing fingers) no crashes! And I was able
to enter
my preferred password from my laptop.

To summarize, my Lenovo laptop needed a driver update in order to work
with a wifi 6 router. The Netgear probably would have worked with the
driver update,
but I'm happy with the TP-Link and it was actually a bit less expensive.
I have noticed that I don't get quite as fast download speeds, but that
could
be due to any number of reasons, such as a busier Internet or even the
driver update. Getting a slightly diminished download speed is way
better than having
to reboot my router several times a day.

I guess time will tell whether I made a good decision in choosing this
router.

I am sending the router back to Amazon. I had my daughter look at it and she tells me that the power light, which was supposed to light up amber when starting and turn white when ready, was not turning white after 2 minutes as stated in the user's manual. The trouble shooting section stated that this may happen if there was a defective unit, so it is going back.

I tried purchasing Gold Wave and it would not accept my credit card.  No, I’d not exceeded my limit.  Who knows why it would not work.  I just got tired of trying to figure out why it was not accepted and found other ways to edit audio programs.

Or maybe an older version of Audacity. It's been around for a while and I'm sure there are old versions available that will work with loads of systems. I first remember using it in 2011 or 2010 I believe and it wasn't exactly new then.

When I used Audacity a couple of years ago, it tended to crash the computer. However, this was an old machine, and I've been told that a newer laptop would work fine with the program.

Hi.
Reaper is not that much more costly than Goldwave at all.
It's definitely more powerful, versatile and so on.
But it's also much, much more complex piece of software. There is a
considerable learning curve if you haven't used serious DAWs before.
At least I find it so -- your milage may vary.
So again it depends on what you'd like to do. Goldwave is a good
little programme for single track editing and your money would be well spent.
However, if you are looking into doing serious audio
work...multitracking, complex efects chains, adaptability with
various sorts of vst plugins...Reaper may also be worth the investment.
If you're new to multitrack editing, you could certainly start with
Audacity. It is free and unlike goldwave it does have true multitrack
capability.

consider, there's also a DAW called Reaper that's said to be very,
very good, especially in manipulating sound at a granular level, more
accurate and capable than Goldwave or Audacity. but more costly.

Greetings,
Which of these two audio editing programs would you recommend? I have
used both a bit. I am using JAWS 2019 with a new laptop, running Windows 10.
Which program is better in terms of being user-friendly, working well
with JAWS, the ability to easily adjust levels for mixing voice and
music beds, etc.?
Thank you for your advice.
Regards,
Craig

Hello,

 

I have some steps you can use regardless of which browser you are using.  This works in Windows 10.  I do not know if it works in earlier versions of Windows.  This works for all sorts of things to send to your desktop like folders, documents, or even a commonly used email address.

 

Go to your desktop.  Press control-space bar to deselect anything on your desktop. 

Press the applications key or shift-10.

Arrow up or down to new and press enter.

Arrow to shortcut and press enter.

You will be in an edit field.  Type or copy/paste your web site URL.

Tab to next button and press enter.

On the next screen give this a name and tab to finish.  Press enter.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Barbara

Hi!

 

I am using Windows 10, JAWS 2019 and Firefox.  Unlike in IE, Firefox seems not to have the “Send Shortcut to Desktop” command.  I use to have an extension called something like “Deskcut” in my Firefox, but apparently it became deprecated and was automatically removed.  So, is there any easy way natively within Firefox, or a good extension for, sending a link to the currently viewed website (i.e., its URL) to the desktop?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hi all, this is Michael and I have a question here on select date and times in Word. 

Everytime in Word when I press the keyboard command Ault+N+D to bring up the day and time, Jaws will give me the date and time for me to pick but recently I can't do that anymore. I pressed  the same command Ault+N+D to bring up the day and time, it won't work as I expected to. . I want to know what caused the problem. I have to press Ault+N to bring up a list of things that is in the insert and then press the left arrow key to get in to Day and times. 

Hope to hear from you.

Best regards

If you're using JAWS, make sure Virtual Ribbon is not checked.

Hi, this is Marty, the originator of this thread. I purchased a Netgear
Nighthawk router, Model R6400, not the newest, from Amazon. It did not come
with the set up CD, nor did it come with a owners manual, but I was able to
find it on line and downloaded it. After plugging it in, now I can't seem
to log in to it using the log in address on the sticker on the bottom of the
router. I saw something somewhere that said to make sure that something was
set to connect to IP and DNS. Where would I go to check this setting. I am
using Windows 7 and JAWS 2020. I have tried logging on with IE, Firefox and
Chrome, but each time, I get the Page Cannot be found screen. Any
suggestions?



Love in Christ

Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist
in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

I thought I'd let y'all know how I resolved my router issues.

I continued to experience the problem with my 5GHz band crashing, so I
decided to try a wifi 6 router. I purchased a Netgear Nighthawk. (I
don't recall
the model number.) And set it up with my wife's sighted assistance. All
went well except my Lenovo Flex laptop simply didn't see either the 2.4
or 5 GHz
bands. I called Netgear support and waited for literally hours to talk
to customer (dis)service only to get disconnected without a solution. I
wasn't going
to wait around for several more hours, so I returned the Netgear router
and purchased a TP-Link Archer AX50.

I encountered a few glitches with its setup as well, but I got them all
resolved. First, I had the same problem with the AX50 not being seen by
my Lenovo
laptop, so I had my wife help me set it up using her iPad. We had some
trouble getting our preferred password to work. I think the iPad was
substituting
some special characters which the router didn't like.

Since my laptop was the only device that didn't want to connect to the
network, I figured it was probably a driver issue, so I went looking for
a driver
update. I first checked Windows update, but it said my driver was up to
date. I then went to the Lenovo website, but couldn't find anything that
looked
like a driver update for the wireless adaptor in my Flex laptop.
Finally, I scoured the Intel website and after much hunting around, I
found a driver update
for my wireless network adapter. I installed it and restarted my computer.

At last, all my devices connected to my new wifi 6 router, including my
Lenovo laptop. And so far, (crossing fingers) no crashes! And I was able
to enter
my preferred password from my laptop.

To summarize, my Lenovo laptop needed a driver update in order to work
with a wifi 6 router. The Netgear probably would have worked with the
driver update,
but I'm happy with the TP-Link and it was actually a bit less expensive.
I have noticed that I don't get quite as fast download speeds, but that
could
be due to any number of reasons, such as a busier Internet or even the
driver update. Getting a slightly diminished download speed is way
better than having
to reboot my router several times a day.

I guess time will tell whether I made a good decision in choosing this
router.

6 support, but I live in a 1 level apartment that's less than 1000 square
feet, so I don't need a mesh router. What I want to know is which features
should I be considering to support this many devices with room to expand.
Does a triband router support more devices? I've read something about
streams and the speeds a router will provide. What should I be looking for
in a router? Brand recommendations would also be helpful.

The Asus rt-ax58u and rt-ax88u also seem to be good. I got the smaller of those to replace a dying router, and it has given me no trouble so far. The rt-ax88u is probably more than most people need, unless you have a very large home, I'd think.

Yeah, now is not a good time to be expecting good Internet speeds, with the
world now working from home.
The card scanners in stores are slow too because of the Internet being
clogged.
