FW: [win10] FW: windows 10 install question

 

Hi,

This is the answer I got from a reputable member of a reputable Windows 10 forum.

Cheers,

Joseph

Joseph,

           If the intent is simply to move an existing Windows 10 installation from one drive to another, and gain space in the process, there is no need for either a new Windows 10 license nor to install Windows 10 using same.

          Since the Win10 digital license is tied to the motherboard, you can swap out system components other than the motherboard at will (and can even change that out were it to fail, but MS has a specific procedure for re-licensing under that special condition).

           If you want to move an existing installation to a larger drive, I'd just clone the existing system drive to the new, larger one.   Some cloning software actually will allow you to expand the existing partition or partitions into the new free space as part of that process, others won't.  If the latter is the case, then you'd have to do the repartitioning to expand your existing partition or partitions into the new free space and/or move them around after the clone.

Re: outlook 2016 and JAWS 2019, seems to be a new bug

I fear that a lot things will get fixed in Outlook 365 and not in the retail version. A bit unfair to us who cannot use 365 at work. Things like the fixes for PowerPoint are a good example.

Well, pressing alt+u results in a “ding” sound; indicating that no action could be taken.  And, the “try” command thing remains.  I am not using the subscription version of Outlook; that is, Office 360.  I am indeed using Outlook 2016 and JAWS 2019.

Not for me, if I press the alt key and focus is on the Home menu all I have to do is arrow left twice and it will either say Turn on features coming soon or Turn off features coming soon checked.

Are you maximized? I guess you can try Alt + U and see what happens, it’s a toggle so if things change for the worse just press it again.

I assume you are talking about the subscription version of Outlook and not the retail version?

Hi Sieghard!

 

Your below is interesting.  However, for me when I follow these steps I end up hearing a series of "try" commands.  What are those?  I do not hear the option button about new features.  I wonder if my hearing these "try" commands means that I have the new features option turned-on?  Perhaps an alt+u would toggle them off?  What do you think?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hi Steve,

 

Have you checked if the "Coming Soon" feature in Outlook is turned off?

When you are in your Inbox press the Alt key to bring up the ribbon menu, you should be on "Home", now left arrow twice, here is Jaws History:

 

I press the Alt key and here this:

Upper Ribbon, Ribbon, Home Tab, Alt followed by H I press the left arrow once and here this:

Leaving menus, File Tab Button, Alt followed by F I press the left arrow a second time and here this:

Ribbon Tabs Tab expanded, Turn on features coming soon Button, Alt followed by U

 

As you can see Alt followed by U is the shortcut, but that will just toggle it and not tell you if it's on or off.

If it says " Turn on features coming soon" then it is off and your problem is a different one.

But if you hear Turn off features coming soon Button checked" then it is on and you can turn this off by pressing the spacebar.

Note that whether you turn it on or off Jaws will focus on an "OK" button and the message which it seems you can only read with the touch cursor is simply this:

 

You must restart this application for the changes to take effect.

OK

 

So go ahead and press OK, then close Outlook completely, wait a few seconds and reopen it, now try to see if you can read those fields with the shortcut keys.

I suggest this should be turned off, if it is on you may get upcoming features which could cause issues like this before Vispero and/or Microsoft has time to make any necessary changes.

I certainly also don't have any issues with Alt + 1, Alt + 2 and so on reading the From, To, CC etc. Fields.

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Thanks for that.  I'm using the same version, and the message is in focus.  I can manually tab and shift tab to the info, but it is not speaking with the alt and numbers.  The correct script is loading too.

Hi bro,

I am using "Microsoft Outlook Subscription Version 16.0.10730.20280"

I am able to  read the sender information with alt and number keys without any issues.

Please verify the focus once the message opens.

if the focus is on the message and if you are not able to read the information with the alt and number keys, then, there might some issues with the jaws.

Am I safe in presuming that you're using JAWS and so is the person on the opposite end?   If so, JAWS Tandem should do the trick.

It's been a while since I played with it, but it behaves conceptually very much like some of the tools mentioned earlier that are aimed primarily at the sighted user.  You can flip-flop back and forth between your own local machine itself, or controlling the other machine via the window created for just that purpose.

I am not sure what to say here since I know nothing about PC Audio Labs.  Are you able to uninstall that particular version of team viewer and reinstall an general one?  If this is some sort of security which prevents third party software, you may be stuck.  Sigh.

Re: 2 questions about Office 365

On the View ribbon, tab over to a checkbox for  “Show messages as conversation”.  Check that box.  As an aside, you will also want to go into Options on the file menu and arrow down to the Ease of Access section. Hit space on that, then tab until you hear  something about “don’t expand conversation when you arrow over them”.  This will keep Outlook from automatically opening a conversation thread as you are arrowing up and down in your mailbox.  To open a thread, you either right arrow or hit enter on the item.  Close a thread by hitting left arrow.  I’ve found this is a little quirkier in Outlook 2016 than it used to be, but it’s still a great feature for wading through group list messages.

Hello,

  1. If by “dark mode” you mean a high contrast setting, I use the Windows High Contrast color scheme for this.  The color scheme options available within Office programs don’t seem to make any visible difference to me.  The potential downside of using high contrast is that it overrides most color flagging in Outlook and Excel.  In other words, Outlook offers options to have certain messages or calendar entries color coded and these don’t show up in the High Contrast color scheme.  The exception is items on your task list or that you have flagged in your inbox with a due date will turn red once overdue. Same goes for Excel. If I get a spreadsheet with cells that have been shaded in a particular color, the Windows High Contrast scheme overrides this.  This is actually great for me when I’m focused on the content of the cells and using a bit of remaining vision, but is a terrible problem when I am trying to ensure that my spreadsheet looks presentable to sighted people I’m about to send it to.  I sometimes turn off the Windows High Contrast Color scheme to review a spreadsheet before sending.

 

  1. Yes, you can organize message by conversation, and by date.  I do this for my JAWS group emails.

computer, 1 that's bigger. If i have a copy of win 10 that i
purchased, is it possible to install it without sited help? I've
heard you can make a USB stick ready for install, but wanted some
feedback. Whether you can do with jaws or narrator figured i would
ask. Any ideas guys?

Thanks,
Jed

Absolutely.  CTRL-Windows-ENTER launches Narrator.

Re: windows 10 install question

 

Hi,
Answer: yes, provided that you have an extra USB sound card and willing to learn Narrator.
I'll forward this question to a more appropriate forum.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hello,

  1. If by “dark mode” you mean a high contrast setting, I use the Windows High Contrast color scheme for this.  The color scheme options available within Office programs don’t seem to make any visible difference to me.  The potential downside of using high contrast is that it overrides most color flagging in Outlook and Excel.  In other words, Outlook offers options to have certain messages or calendar entries color coded and these don’t show up in the High Contrast color scheme.  The exception is items on your task list or that you have flagged in your inbox with a due date will turn red once overdue. Same goes for Excel. If I get a spreadsheet with cells that have been shaded in a particular color, the Windows High Contrast scheme overrides this.  This is actually great for me when I’m focused on the content of the cells and using a bit of remaining vision, but is a terrible problem when I am trying to ensure that my spreadsheet looks presentable to sighted people I’m about to send it to.  I sometimes turn off the Windows High Contrast Color scheme to review a spreadsheet before sending.

 

  1. Yes, you can organize message by conversation, and by date.  I do this for my JAWS group emails.

Hi,

 

I have 2 questions about Office 365.

 

  1. Does office have a “dark mode,” if so, how do I activate it?
  2. In outlook, can I organize messages by thread, in addition to the default option of date?

Thanks,

Jessica

Re: Accessible Screen Sharing Software

Richard Turner
 


what about Zoom Meeting?
It is free, one-on-one meetings are unlimited for time, and it allows screen sharing and it allows audio.
If sharing is all that is needed, that should work fine.
If Markus needs control of the computer, then not.

Re: Accessible Screen Sharing Software

Same issue, different name.  Usually screen sharing will allow control, at least I've never used one that didn't.  Most of these programs work fine for sighted people, blind people can start them but not really use one to help someone else.
