It’s a view issue. I just have to figure out what’s different with the views on the two pcs I’m referring to. I’ll figure it out wen I have an extra moment.

It doesn’t in Windows 7 using NVDA.  I don’t know what JAWS does in Windows 7 and higher.

You shouldn’t have to do all that though. Pressing insert tab while focused on the drive will give you that info.

You do so in exactly the same way as with any drive.  If you know how to do this in general, you needn’t read the rest of this explanation.  The computer treats it like any drive.

 

Be on the stick icon but don’t open it. 

Open properties with alt enter.

then wroute the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor if you are using JAWS, move to the top of the screen and start down arrowing.  You will get to an item for free space.  You will hear the amount in bits and in gigabites if you let the line read.

Press escape to close the dialog and return to where you started and return to the pc cursor.

 

If you are using NVDA, the instructions are similar.  I won’t go into detail here as to how you move around the screen but once you open properties, switch to screen review, move the screen review cursor to the top of the screen, then move down using the review movement commands by line until you get to the free space numbers line.

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me how to check the amount of space that's left on a USB stick?
I'm sure it says the size on the package, but of course we don't have the
package anymore. Using latest versions of Jaws and Windows 10. Thanks Madison
