Hi David,
 
What's the work around for NVDA?  Someone else is having problems with Jaws & NVDA running Windows 10 with J2020.

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

Mark
 

I am on a webpage and bring up a list of links and then go to one of them.  Suddenly, I feel a bit lost. It would be helpful to know if I am in a main region, a complementary information region, or a footer region for example. Is there a JAWS command that will tell me that?

Hi.  I am in the same situation Mr. Rawls is in.  Anyway, when installing Windows updates on patch Tuesday on my desktop pc and laptop pc, the internet went down while my Hp laptop pc was installing the updates.  This caused the Windows 10 updates to become corrupted.  Numerous calls to the Microsoft disability answer desk did not solve the issue until the case was escalated.  Now Jaws is announcing keystrokes like enter and escape.  I have been poking around trying to remember how to disable those keystrokes from speaking.  Sorry if I misspelled your last name, Jim.

Ripping a CD Using Windows Media Player

What follows presumes that you will be ripping to MP3 format.  Please read all the way through the instructions first, as the information about the MP3Gain Utility and setting up a staging folder for it are every bit as important as the basics of setting up CD ripping.  There is a separate set of instructions focusing on using MP3Gain itself.

1. Open Windows Media Player (WMP) and insert a CD.  You can stop it as soon as it starts playing.  You cannot do the steps that follow unless an audio CD is in the tray and its tracks have been recognized by WMP.

2. Once the CD has been stopped, hit ALT+E to open the Rip Settings dropdown menu.  Make sure you select the file format and audio quality level you wish to have used on future automatic rips.

3. If you happen to have closed the Rip Settings menu ALT+E will open it again.  There are two entries in this menu that immediately follow the Audio Quality entry:

                 a.  Rip CD Automatically

                 b.  Eject CD after ripping

both are check toggles and can be used in whatever combination you'd like.  If your goal is to always just rip a CD immediately without playing it (unless you press the Play button) then both of these should be checked.

That's it.  From the point you've got both of those boxes checked if you insert a CD that has not already been ripped it will immediately be ripped to the location you've set up for your music library (for most of us that's the Music library that Windows has set up out of the box, but it can be changed) and ejected when the rip is complete (or has failed at some point - which is rare).

If you are ripping to MP3 format, and intend to use your resulting files on various players, I strongly suggest you take a look at the free MP3Gain utility.  It saves both your sanity and your ears since the differences in the volume levels used for different albums is substantial.  The program does a statistical analysis of how loud a given track "sounds to the human ear" and adds a tag at the start of the file to adjust it to a target volume (and 89.0 db is their default, and works well).  It does not reencode the file so it has no impact on the sound quality.  I also strongly suggest that you do the following in Windows Media Player so that freshly ripped files go to their own staging folder to be processed with MP3Gain rather than directly into your Music Library, which is where ripped content would go by default:

1.       Open the Tools Menu (ALT+T) then choose Options (O).

2.       Navigate to the Rip Music tab.

3.      In the Rip music to this location section, there will be a folder listed, which defaults to your Music library.  Activate the Change button and then, if you’ve created the folder you want to use ahead of time, navigate to it and activate the OK button.  If you didn’t create it ahead of time, navigate to the folder where you want it to be created, then hit the Create New Folder button, give the new folder a name, then hit OK.  I suggest using your Documents folder and to have a specific folder under there named something like For MP3Gain Processing, so it’s obvious what’s in there needs to be processed.

4.      You can also take this opportunity to recheck your settings under the Rip settings section to ensure that you have the checkboxes for Rip CD automatically and Eject CD after ripping are both checked and your MP3 bit rate (Audio Quality) is set where you want it.  I always use the maximum of 320 Kbps, but many don’t go beyond 192 Kbps.  That choice is entirely yours.

5.      Activate the OK button to close the Options dialog.  If you checked both checkboxes, going forward any time you insert a CD when Windows Media Player is running it will automatically rip the contents to your staging folder and then eject the CD once the rip process is complete.  A rip for most CDs takes several minutes, at most, but the longer the CD the longer the rip time.

You will move the music files from your staging folder to your actual Music library after you have processed them with MP3Gain.

moderated hyper v, jaws

Hi. Wondering. Got a sighted friend  me via patrion. And now got hyper v. jaws just says input capture. How do I get it to read the content inside the guest os, which is windows server 2019. Need to do a practical lab. And now he had to uinstall vm ware workstation pro. My 30 day trial ran out. And when he tried oracle virtual box, he is a certified novel and ciscko network admin, it kept crhasing and powering off. So he installed and set up hyper v, as it comes with windows pro 10 2004 or 2009. Now I have got the latest October updates.

Now wondering do I need to have a remote connection to a remote computer. He set up the audio endopints etc. also a qualified programmer, sighted, and he is doing this via patrion. And he is remoting using either team viewer or google remote assistant.

Thanks.mentoring


moderated List Rules - Sun, 11/01/2020 #cal-notice

main@jfw.groups.io Calendar <noreply@...>
 

List Rules

When:
Sunday, 1 November 2020
12:00am to 1:00am
(GMT-04:00) America/New York

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin

Have you tried workforce?
I get all the job listings for my zip code in a daily eMail from workforce.
There is always work from home jobs listed there.
You will need to go to your state's wrkforce site and create an account, and then do a search for all jobs in your zip code as the search area, and it will give you a page of them.
Then you can tell it to send you a daily message.
In Nebraska, the workforce page is difficult, but doable.

I'm not sure, Adrian. I really like the way Edge does text-based files. As you say, it does them better than Adobe sometimes. But if you want to view  a file that's not text-based, and need to use Acrobat Reader, I think you might need to set that as your default to do so. I suppose you could check the pdf, and see if each one is text-based. If it's not, you can press ALT plus ENTER, click the change button, and switch temporarily to Acrobat to view that particular pdf.

Hi, Adrian. I find that, if the pdf document is text-based, Edge does well, but if the pdf needs OCR scanning such as goes on in JAWS, if a document shows up as "empty" in Adobe DC, Edge just shows a couple of graphics, and won't read the content at all.

Now that you’ve made yourself into our resident browser expert, thanks to your well-received book, I’m curious how you feel about Edge’s handling of PDF files. I’ve always opened them in Adobe Reader, but the other day I opened one in Edge. It was a credit card statement, and Edge laid it out exactly as it should be. Adobe Reader had never done so with these statements, and I’d tried a variety of AR settings. I’m considering making Edge the new default for all PDF files.

I am using the jaws2021 beta version with win10.

I must be missing something,
Oh well, maybe someday it will magically work;
Until it does,
I guess bookmarks won't work.


Please advise as you like.

Subject: Setting a bookmark in Word

I don't know what is different from name and location. when I add bookmarks
using each one, they are accessed the same.

So.
1. Alt-n, then k. Choose either name or location because it doesn't seem to
matter.
2. Type the name.
3. Tab to add and press enter.
that's all.

To access the bookmarks
1. Press ctrl-g (go to)
2. Shift-tab once to the list of items; page is the first.
3. Arrow down to bookmarks. I don't think you have to press enter, but If
your list doesn't magically appear, I guess you do.
4. Once in the bookmarks list, arrow up or down to the one you want and
press enter.
5. You are still in the dialog. You have to press escape to get out of it
and return to the document.
