Re: SE 2020 input please!

Shelly Kane
 

You were asking about the iPhone SE 2020, well, the actual SE stands for Special Edition and it's the second generation as someone else said.  I just wanted to clarify that for you what the SE  stood for.  HTH!

Hi James!

I had this problem a couple of weeks ago, and a friend went into the bios and did something to correct this problem.

Why aggravate yourself by getting a demo of Jaws that you have to restart every forty minutes. Either buy/ Jaws for $120.00 a year or get NVDA which is free.

Re: Openbook 9 default folder to save documents change?

Gene
 

I just checked.  I speculated that saving the settings after opening or saving a file as I described might cause the default folder to change.  It doesn’t.  this setting isn’t remembered after the program closes if you move around as I described.. 
 
However, there is a much easier way to change the default location.

Hi Loy,
 
Here's how:
 
    If you want to save every file you want saved from Openbook to go to your My Documents folder do the following:
1. First we will need the file path to your My Documents folder from your C Drive so, do this.  Press enter on My Computer from your desktop & press enter
on your C drive.
2. Find Documents & Settings, press enter to open, Find Your Name folder, press enter to open, find My Documents, press enter to open but, do not select
anything after you open the My Documents folder.
3. Now, press the F6 key, this will show the file path to your My Documents folder, press control, + C to copy the file path to your clipboard.  You don't
need to select it it is already selected / highlighted.  After you have the file path copied to the clipboard press, shift + F6, to get out of that window
& Alt + F4 to close Documents & Settings.  Okay you have the file path copied to the clipboard so, now open Openbook because you are going to paste that
file path into your Openbook General Settings.
4. With Openbook open press, Alt + G, to open your settings options list, now press the letter, G, to open, General Settings.
5. Tab to, Default File Format, arrow up or down to select the file format you want to save your documents in.
6. Tab 1 time to, Default File Location, Press your backspace key to remove what's there, press, control + C, to paste your file path to your My documents folder right here.  The file path should look
something like below:
 
C:\Documents and Settings\Your Name\My Documents
 
7. Tab to apply, press the spacebar,Tab to okay, press the spacebar to save your changes & close General Settings.  Now you need to save these new settings
as your default settings.  So press, Alt + G again, & you should be on, Save The Settings so press enter to open.  Tab a couple of times & make sure that,
All Settings, is checked.  Now tab 1 time to, Save, press enter.  You will hear something like, file default already exists, would you like to overwrite
it?, press the letter, Y, for yes.  Okay you are done.  Whenever you save a document from Openbook it should be saved in your My Documents folder in the
format of your choice.  Press, Alt + F, for the file menu, arrow up to, exit, press enter to close Openbook.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Can the default folder to save documents in Openbook 9 be changed?


Re: Openbook 9 default folder to save documents change?

Gene
 

I just did a bit of experimenting.  If I change the open dialog to open a file in a different folder, it remembers and shows me that folder when I use the open dialog again.  It also saves in that folder.  If I close and reopen the program, the two locations revert to what they were.  This might change permanently if you save the settings after you make the changes. 
 
But remember that this may be an inconvenience, depending on how you generally save things.  As I said, it appears that if you change where you open things, that appears to change where you save things as well.  I didn’t check to see if the reverse happens.

Re: a free speach system

Gene
 

I wasn’t sure what you meant by a free speech system.  If you mean a free screen-reader, as someone said, NVDA is a very good screen-reader.  It won’t meet certain needs but it will meet a lot, perhaps most peoples’ needs well.  The reason I said it may not meet everyone’s needs is because there are certain things you can’t do.  You can’t define what JAWS calls frames, that is, tell certain parts of the screen to take actions when something happens in that part of the screen.  You may be able to have someone write a script for NVDA to do what you want, but it isn’t as user definable.  But for a lot or most people it will meet their needs.  I use it.

Re: A Computer and the fan Question Please?

Gene
 

If you use the restart command, the fan stays on.  The entire computer stays on. 
 
But before, what happened?  Even if something was wrong with the fan, even if the fan didn’t work at all, the computer would have booted.  It might have overheated and shut down or been damaged, but it would have worked.  had the computer been off for awhile before you booted up last time?  It sounds more like a power supply problem.

Hi Everyone,
Some weeks ago I had to hold the power button on the tower for at least 12 minutes to get my Windows 7 to start, and I'm thinking it was the fan because of the way it sounded when I turned it on.  Although, it did finally come back on long enough for me to back up my files, I would like to restart the computer, so my question is if it is the fan, when I restart my computer, doesn't the fan still stay on? Because if not, chances if this computer shuts down, it won't start back up!  

Thank you all in advance.
