Steve:

When we moved to the UK, we brought all our existing keyboards, which are the US Layout. We do not want nor wish to constantly have to change keyboard layouts, between a laptop with a UK keyboard and an external US keyboard, depending on what we need to use at the time.

Another reason I prefer to have a laptop with a US keyboard, is that I have the ability to use both the left and right alt keys to perform functions. The UK keyboard has only one alt key, which is the left alt key because, the right alt key, is configured as a combined alt+ctrl combination.

It depends on the type of file. For stuff that is already compressed, like mp3s or jpgs, you will not see much reduction at all. But for text, the difference should be significant.

Hi Rick

 

Well, I have winrar on this computer. I’ve used it for many years on many systems. The programme is not exactly free (last time I checked anyway), but it just nags, and the shell options (IE in the contexxt menu), of which there are quite a few available, don’t give a nag screen. It can work with .zip files and also the .rar compressionf ormat, of course. You get slightly better compression for text with .rar than .zip, but it doesn’t really matter in most modern contexts what format you use. Doing an experiment now on a 490 K html file, using the best compression available, I got a result of 190 K using zip; and 166 k using rar.

Hi,

 

 

Using the latest version of Jaws with latest Windows10. Is the mail app

that comes with Windows10 at all usable with Jaws? So far, all I've

managed to do is add an account, but now I can't get past the screen

If it isn't accessible, what other email clients, other than

This is a long time issue and Microsoft is not ready to listen us.

The matter of fact is that whenever I tried to contact with disability answer desk about this problem, they say that I need to reinstall my windows 10.

The matter of fact is that they do not recognize the fact that this issue is an issue of accessibility related.

moderated Re: I am looking for the following type of laptop

 

It probably would with respect to the @ sign and double and single quotes, but it wouldn't change the fact that the left shift key is essentially split into two normal sized keys where one is the shift and the other the backslash. I actually have an old Acer laptop which has such a layout and it's a pain in the neck. Obviously there is a physical difference because I recently bought the Das Keyboard 4 Professional mechanical keyboard and they offer a "UK" version.

For me, this app is completely inaccessible with JFW. I can't do a single tihng with it. I still can't even get past the screen with the Add Account button. nothing makes that disappear even though it told me my Gmail account had been added.

I should mention though, that if you want to add your signature, that is not very accessible.

Hi,

 

 

Using the latest version of Jaws with latest Windows10. Is the mail app

that comes with Windows10 at all usable with Jaws? So far, all I've

managed to do is add an account, but now I can't get past the screen

with the Add Account button.

 

 

If it isn't accessible, what other email clients, other than

Thunderbird, can people recommend? I cold use Outlook,b ut that seems

like such overkill when all I want to do is get my email.

 

 

Thanks,

 

~Ann

Hi Richard,
 
To create a desktop shortcut to your Dropbox folder try the following if your Dropbox folder is in its default location:
1. Press, Windows key + R, to open the Run dialogue.
2. Type a single period like you would put at the end of a sentence and press enter.  This will take you to your User name folder.
3. Navigate to your, Dropbox, folder and with your Dropbox folder highlighted open the context menu with the applications key or shift + F10.
4. Navigate to, SendTo, press enter, now down arrow to, Desktop create shortcut, and press enter.  Wham bam you now have the shortcut on your desktop.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that somebody screwed up.

Hi!

 

Thanks for your below.  Could you please provide specific instructions how to do this?  Deleting the shortcut from my desktop (Windows 7) is pretty straight forward, but the part about creating a new one is a little murky; particularly as regards just how it would login to my DB account?  Or, maybe I am over-thinking this, and it is more simple?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Alternatively just delete the Dropbox shortcut from your desktop and create a new shortcut which points to your Dropbox folder.

Hi,

 

I have tried doing the operation as described below to get DB to open in Windows Explorer, like how the older version worked.  However, so far I have not been successful at making this setting stick.  Is there some trick to try, or some other way of accomplishing this?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Howdy All,

 

I just ran into an issue with Dropbox where it wouldn't let me acces my files.  Well, it turned out that it wanted to update and after downloading the installer and reinstalling Dropbox navigating the folders flat out sucked, so here's how to change the necessary setting for easier navigation.

 

1. Open Dropbox from the system tray, tab to, Access and Manage your Dropbox settings button, and press enter.

 

2. Now tab to, Preferences, and press enter.

 

3. On the General tab, tab to the, Open folders in Dropbox combobox, open this combobox and choose the, Explorer, option.  With Jaws you can open this combobox with Alt + down arrow and then up arrow to the Explorer option and press enter to close the combobox.  Now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close preferences.

Note:  This can act a little tricky so it might take a couple of attempts to get the Explorer settings change to stick.

If you have a shortcut key that opens Dropbox options, after you openDropbox up arrow to, Preferences, press enter and follow step 3 from above.

If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!
