Re: Clearing stuff out of a laptop with the latest version of Windows 10?

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Sharon,
 
Using Disk Cleanup and making sure all the checkboxes are checked should be about all you need to do.    Here's a little tip that you may or may not know about.
When you run Disk Cleanup you hear your screen reader say some jibberish and then you will hear how much space you will save or clear up in megabytes, and you will be in a list of X amount of checkboxes.
 
Example:  You can use Disk Cleanup to free up to 108 MB of disk space on Win10 (C:).
List view Downloaded Program Files 0 bytes checked
1 of 7
Temporary Internet Files 22.3 KB checked 2 of 7
DirectX Shader Cache 64.9 KB checked 3 of 7
Delivery Optimization Files 79.3 MB checked 4 of 7
Recycle Bin 1.27 KB checked 5 of 7
Temporary files  .23 MB checked 6 of 7
Thumbnails 27.4 MB checked 7 of 7
 
Now  after you've heard all the above or arrowed through it all this is another place where you want to press the spacebar to find even more files to remove.
 
Description Clean up system files Button, Press the spacebar on this button and in the resulting dialogue you will hear a larger amount of space saved or files to be removed and there will be more options in the checkbox list to check.
 
Then tab to, Okay, press the spacebar and choose Yes in the resulting dialogue and wait for the cleanup process to complete.


Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

Because Windows nowadays  is so different than what it used to bee, How do I go about cleaning things up to make my laptop perform better like before?  Is CCleaner and/or maintenance enough?

Veronica, have you tried Shift Delete for Drafts?

As for your contacts, have you tried Control+Shift+B to get
to your address book and go through them? HTH.

Hello Everyone,



I am using outlook 2013 on my windows 7 computer. Whenever
I delete the items in the Draft folder, and I check the

any way to permanently delete the e-mails in the Draft

Another issue I have is that when I use Control-3 to read my
contact list, only about eight contacts are listed, and
these are contacts I don't use that often. However, when I
am sending an e-mail message and use Control-N, contacts
appear depending on which letter the contact started with.
When using this method, there are quite a few contacts that
I would like to delete, but I have not figured out a way to
do so.



I have had these issues for quite a while, and as I am
quickly running out of disk space, I am trying to delete as
much as possible from my computer. Thanks for any help.

Re: Questions Concerning Outlook

The amount of disk space used by contacts and e-mail is very small, especially in today’s large hard drives.  If you are running low on disk space and you want to keep most of what you have, I would very strongly recommend getting an external drive for additional content.  also, are you backing things up you don’t want to lose?  If not, sooner or later, you will lose what you haven’t backed up. 
 
Regarding not seeing many contacts but seeing lots of addresses when you use autocomplete, if that is what you are doing, e-mail programs don’t necessarily keep autocomplete information in the same place as contacts, which may account for the discrepancy.  But contacts, autocomplete information and e-mails take up such little space that getting rid of them will accomplish almost nothing. 
 
Also, are you using a pop3 or an IMAP account?

How do I turn on the screen reader on my new 24 inch Insignia TV

James Bentley
 

Greetings to all,

 

I would very much appreciate it if some one can tell me how to turn on the voice guide on this new Insignia 24 inch TV.

 

Also, if some one knows the layout of the remote control, that would be very helpful.  Or, some place where I can down load this information.

 

Many many, thanks for any help.

Re: accessibility to GoToWebinar

heather albright
 

Hello, I can read the site and I cant log in till the event on august 26. I am using windows10 latest with jaws 2021 latest. I use the brave browser off the pc and I have all 3 screen readers: narrator, NVDA and jaws. I am mainly a NVDA/JAWS user but, I have used narrator just in case I have to use it I can do so if I need too. I do have voice over with safari too. I was hoping they had a test room just to see if it will work like zoom does. I did not see one, maybe I missed it? I thought I saw a message about someone using it off their phone, I can not find that message. Was it an iPhone and was it recently. Thanks everyone for all the help. I mainly use zoom and I can get the jaws webinars and I thought this would be the same. I also use Microsoft teams and Skype. I still think the zoom platform by far is the most accessible; not that the others are not accessible but zoom is the one I like the best.

Morning all,

 

Heather, what browser are you using?  What version of Jaws?

 

I just tried this site with Jaws16 and Win7.  I used Google Chrome as

the browser.  I could read the main page very well.  I didn't log in,

but I was able to see all links.  Now, I didn't try it in Win10 with

the latest version of Jaws.  When did you start getting the blank

screens?   Was it before or after you logged in.  Somebody needs to

test this more thoroughly.  I suspect that it probably *does* work with

Jaws but it needs some tweaking.  Works with System Access.  I'd try

Google Chrome I didn't try NVDA, but that might be an option as well. 

Caveat, I repeat, I didn't log in, so all I saw was the main page.  If

you're trying to access this thing with MSIE, you probably won't get

the best results as MSIE is legacy software.  I like Chrome.  I don't

care for Edge, and although I can use FF, I prefer Google Chrome

because it works with most things.

 

It should work with Jaws, if it truly doesn't, once you log in, then

they need to fix it.

 

One thing I have noticed over the years is that it is always a good

idea to have more than one screen reader and more than one browser on

your system.  There are differences in browsers and in screen readers,

and one short-changes oneself if one sticks to just one screen reader

or one browser.  Does the site work with a braille display?

Re: feeds on my windows 10pc

When you do the Windows key plus m and go to the desktop, begin tabbing?

After you hear Task Bar”, do you hear the weather? If not, the feed is not turned on, which means you would not get the option to turn it off. That is the only thing I can think of that would prevent the option.

Re: accessibility to GoToWebinar

I have not been using gotomeeting for a few months. Most of it, its rather useable with jaws.
Due to the my mobility, I use on my mobile device on the go
But thats as a guest, not a host.
I don't have any webina at this stage with gotomeeting, so i can't really test if the accessibility is still useable with current version of jaws or nvda.
but then again, i have been using it for a few years long before zoom came in, its rather ok.

Re: read aloud speed

Gene
 

In imersive reader, if you look down, you will see a voice options button.  Activate it with the space bar.  Have reading already in progress so you can hear the speed change as you move the slider.  Go into forms mode or turn browse mode off, whatever terms match your screen-reader, you are doing the same thing.
You are on a slider.  Use the left and right arrow keys.  When you are finished, leave the window with escape.

guys, in WLM how do you add an email address to the address book?, When i get an email, and i want to add the email address to the address book. I may not be explaining this issue well. In Thunderbird the other email client i use. You just bring up the address in tools, and add the email, but not so easy in WLM, bILLY


Re: Mesh device

Wireless Mesh  is more efficient in send and receiving connection as its b-directional.  the backbone of the network of a wireless mesh are either using another frequency or higher frequency so the transmission  is not interfere or interrupt  by 2.4GHZ example. they are generally at 5.0GHZ. some of them can be connected using wireless backbone aka backhaul.

wireless extended are basically another network talking to the existing network. they can't utilise  the full potential of 5.0ghz, so they can only transmit  on 2.4ghz. they will talk one direction, before receiving another. no doubt its happening in tiny mini second but they are generally less efficient.

if you are going to change or upgrade your existing wireless network or router, if your money permit and i will highly recommend go for wireless mesh. you can upgrade  your or add node as you can afford. 
example, if you get google wifi and google nest wifi, they generally can talk to one another  despite being years apart.
Asus as well have AIMesh. you can get older model and talk to newer model. of course, you can't change older model speed to newer one.

It will usually have a separate network that you can connect too. Also, it reduces your speed because it is extending your network rather than using multiple  nodes.

I’d never use a network extender if given the choice.

Hello list
What is the purpose of a mesh device and does it also serve as a wifi
network extender?
