Re: can't hear jaws when I get a skype call

Tim Ford
 

JAWS does the same thing with Skype version 7.  There is a key combination, alt + page up, to answer, so it is not an issue to not be able to hear JAWS.  I do not know the Skype 8 answer call command, but I know it exists.

Subject: can't hear jaws when I get a skipe call

 

Hi,

 

So I’ve recently installed the latest version of skipe onto my PC, but when I get a skipe call come through I can’t hear Jaws any longer  to be able to answer the call. It seems like the volume of jaws is lowering when the skipe call comes through. Does anyone have or know of a solution to this? Also on a similar note, to answer an incoming skipe call  I usually use jaws key and f11 to view everything in my system tray, then scroll down to skipe click that and then from the skipe dropdown menu which appears I select answer call, is there a quicker way to answer a call, maybe a key combination/shortcut I’m not aware of?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Howdy,


From our win10 sister list and other reputable sources in the wires and
colleagues from my personal network there have been loads of reports
about people losing their data when they upgrade from windows 10 version
1803 to version 1809. Microsoft has put the version 1809 update back on
the shelf until they figure out what is happening. This seems to be
happening to folks who are signed into one drive while they run the
upgrade. Systems that are not signed into one drive appear not to have
the issue. You can read more of this here.

Re: Jaws check for updates

Hrmmm, I tried it with the desktop focused and did have to alt+tab,
then tried it again with Firefox focused (which was the case last
night when I tried this) and did not.

I had forgotten that Steve Matzura posted a direct link to a download site for Windows PE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) versions that are set up to talk when they run using NVDA.   That site is:  http://www.opopanax.net/download/ 

I have not used any of these talking Windows PE ISOs, but I have no reason whatsoever to believe they would not work.  The correct one for your system could be downloaded on its own, and then you could just download the Macrium Reflect software without Windows PE.

You would still need to create the Macrium recovery media, which should then use the talking Windows PE to build it.

Re: Installing windows10

 

When I download the Media Creation Tool and then run the executable I get a message like “Getting a few things read”, then after a bit it comes up with the software license agreement which of course you have to agree to. Then it again says “Getting a few things ready” and then after another 10 or 20 seconds I am presented with the following options:

 

What do you want to do?

Upgrade this PC now radio button checked  1 of 2

Create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) for another PC radio button checked 2 of 2

Back Button Alt+B

Next Button alt+N

 

By default you land on “Upgrade this PC Now”, but if you down arrow you get to the other radio button, then just press Alt+N for Next and you will be asked what media you want to use, e.g. a USB Drive, make an ISO file or make a DVD. I haven’t had a DVD drive on a computer for years but I assume that if you do and you have a writeable DVD in it then you can select this drive and it wil then download Windows 10 and create the DVD.

The document is pretty straight forward, but, Adobe freezes in the middle

However, NVDA doesn’t like it either.

Acrobat is always kind of sluggish.
If it’s not a scanned image document and is straightforward in general
(iE, an etext or something), you can use qRead. It’s a nice little
programme that very quickly opens pdf and epub files. I like it because
it’s very fast. However it doesn’t have many of the features Adobe has.
It’s generally meant for books or similar context with straightforward,
linear text.

Hi listers:

Recently, I have been needing to access some PDF’s. For some reason,
whenever I try to use Acrobat Reader DC, the program seems to be very
sluggish, sometimes, even unresponsive. Is this becoming a problem? If
so, is there another solution that will work better with JFW?

Thanks!



Re: Using Macrium Reflect Version 7 to Take A Full System Image Backup

 

I had forgotten that Steve Matzura posted a direct link to a download site for Windows PE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) versions that are set up to talk when they run using NVDA.   That site is:  http://www.opopanax.net/download/ 

I have not used any of these talking Windows PE ISOs, but I have no reason whatsoever to believe they would not work.  The correct one for your system could be downloaded on its own, and then you could just download the Macrium Reflect software without Windows PE.

You would still need to create the Macrium recovery media, which should then use the talking Windows PE to build it.
