Hi. Did try this a while back or a year or two back, and was not very accessible with jaws, and nvda. Has any one tried this webstore and is it more accessible now.

Thanks.

Subject: [TechTalk] how do I uninstall jaws from my windows 10 laptop?

 

I have a laptop that originally came with windows 8.1 and that my cousin upgraded to windows 10 when windows offered the free upgrade.

 

I have jaws and NVDA installed on the computer and I have had one member of this list remotely enter my system to help me configure thunderbird to be used as my email client.

 

I noticed after my cousin gave me my computer back, with the upgraded version of windows 10 on it  that it was slow, like someone reading braille by letter by letter, but after they read the first letter, they have to check their learning braille books for the next letter one by one, on and on until they have the complete word spelled out and then they move on to the next letter.  I can click con a link  or option in the various windows or what not and walk away from the computer for about 2 to 3 minutes and  I will hear the computer just starting to do what I want it to do.

 

even the person who helped me remotely said "man, your computer is exceedingly slow"  have you degragged the hard drive.  my answer:  yes, several times.

 

I have removed apps, programs, ect and to no avail.

 

so, I  have asked here on the list and have had some luck from gene and perhaps 2 or 3 other people with helpful suggestions or websites to look at.

 

my cousin who upgraded the computer from windows 8 to windows 10

 said that it was probably the screen reading program that was slowing my system down.  So, I wish to do a test.  I wish to remove jaws  and run NVDA on it to test to see if jaws is the issue.  yes, I know, I know, why would the premier screen reading software company cause such a slow down on a system, but the whole "resetting" the computer to a "fresh copy of windows 10" did nothing to fix the issue, if I did it correctly via a webpage from the virge that gene had posted to the group. 

 

I do not wish to start a debate between members regarding resetting in windows 10 and restetting iin earlier versions as the word has ddifferent meanings in different versions of windows.

 

So, bottom of the line,  how do I remove a program from a windows 10 computer?

 

Thank you.

Hi. You don’t have to remove jaws to test this. Just unload it, run NVDA and see if there is any difference in performance.

Hi heather,

I have gone ahead & written to all the organisations you mentioned
above. I have also written to Deque Systems. I really hope, one of
them is able to send across a Braille copy or at least, a BRF file
which then can be printed.

I have recently also joined the WCAG facebook group as well where I
raised the same concern. A few people told me they can help but so far
no one has got back with anything concrete as such.

Will surely keep you informed.

Ferrite Recording Studio is accessible and good, Hokusai is good, Goldwave is good and Twistedwave is good. All of these are accessible, customizable and not expensive. Dolby On is good too and it's free.

Hi Sugar. First, i would suggest that you move all the files you want renamed to a separate folder for convenience.

Now go to your command line. Suppose you have created a folder called fileRename for such a purpose on your C drive, then move into that directory by typing the following:

Cd C:\fileRename

You will here that you have successfully changed or moved into your desired directory.

Now if all your email files have, for example a .eml extension, and you want to have them as .txt files instead, then type the following:

rename *.eml *.txt

The * symbol signifies a wild card which allows you to rename any file type to another. Try this and let us know. Cheers!

Re: need help finding a compatible power cord for an acer inspire 15.6 laptop

Hi.


For your information, it's Aspire not Enspire, in case that helps you find one. Last resort you could try buying like for instance an Igo Green universal laptop charger. It'll come with lots of tips, one of which you hope will fit in the charge port of your machine.

I ordered a power cord for my Acer laptop but we discovered I had the wrong one. The tip that you plug into the connector hole is not long enough so of course no connection can be made. It's too short to reach the connection and won't fit snugly, and I think it might be made for a Chrome book and not a laptop--at least not mine. This laptop is like 5 years old and I'm sure it was discontinued. I have looked at cords but there are none that specifically say model 15e.6. After my first mistake I don't want to order another one that has a short tip or for whatever reason can't connect. Would any Acer 15 series cord work or do I need more specifics on my laptop to make sure I get the right one? I know there are universal power cords and wonder if anyone has used one of these.
 
Unfortunately this computer came without a battery, and I'd attempt to also get a battery if I knew for sure which one to get.

Re: NCH software

I would think you can open search in the same way as in Windows 7.  Be in the folder you want to search, the top level folder which contains the subfolder and issue the command control e.  If the interface is the same as Windows 7, you can type wav to search for wave files, then tab around until you get to the results list.  In Windows 7, the list grows automatically as new files are found.  But it may be that in Windows 10, you have to press enter after typing what you are searching for.  In Windows 7, you don’t, but I seem to recall reading that in Windows 10 you do.  I’ll be curious to see if what I’ve written applies.

Here is a page that discusses how to only search the folder and no subfolders.  Since I don’t have Windows 10, I’m not sure if you can set this setting in a similar way in Windows 10 and Windows 7.  The method described here appears to be different.  It appears that once you begin a search, items are available such as not to search subfolders.  these instructions may help you set this option.  you may have to do so for each search.

I just figured out how to not have the Windows search search subvfolders in Windows 7. It may be the same in Windows 10 but the way you get to the part of the dialog in the folder you are working with may be different.  This may be a universal command that applies everywhere once you change it.  I’ll let others explain how to do this in Windows 10.  I’ll explain it for Windows 7 if no explanations for Windows 10 are given so that you can see if you can figure out how to do this in Windows 10.

At least in Windows 7, the search function moved to with control e in Windows 7, searches subfolders as well as the folder you are in so that wouldn’t be satisfactory unless that behavior can be changed.  I see another list member has given you another option, but my question is, do you have the option to delete the original file automatically on conversion when you are converting to another format?  I once wanted to convert a file to the same format, MP3, but use different parameters such as bit rate.  Because it was going to use the same format, it asked about deleting the original file because they both would have the same name.

Yes, I checked the box that puts them in the same folder as the source folder.

That’s exactly what I want to do.

There are many many folders split up into artist and then in each artist are the tracks.

I don’t want to put all of the *.flac files in one folder, I want them all to go into the same folder as the *.wav files resign. So keeping the folder the same as the source folder does that, but it doesn’t delete the *.wav files when done.

I want it to delete the *.wav files after it converts them to *.flac. However I don’t believe this program can do that.

So in this case, once I’ve converted all of my *.wav files to *.flac, what would then be the easiest way to delete all of the *.wav files but make sure the *.flac files remain??

Is there some way that doesn’t involve me manually searching for all *.wav files?

I’m actually surprised there is no option to delete the original after conversion as an option, but this software doesn’t have that from what I see.

Which means there’s got to be another way that is more  automatic than I’m thinking.

Thanks,

John

The program runs as a full demo for a time, I don’t recall how long.  After that time, when you run it, a screen will appear asking you to verify that you are using the program as a home user in conformance with the free offer.  If you just press enter, you will have verified it and the program will open fully. 

 

I don’t know what the paid version does that the free version doesn’t do, but the free version does a lot and is likely to fill your needs.

 

As far as removing all the wave files, you can have the converted files be in a different folder.  If you have all the wave files you want to convert in one folder, then select them all and delete them, thus resulting in an empty folder. 

 

I used the program somewhat some time ago but I’ve hardly used it for a time and I’d have to look at the program to tell you in detail how to do things like change where converted files will go.  If you look around and have problems figuring out what you want to do, I’ll check the program if others haven’t answered your questions in a reasonable time.

 

I recall there is a check box that causes the converted files to be placed in the source folder.  To do what I am suggesting, this needs to be unchecked.  I don’t recall what the default setting is.

Great! Thanks!

Now  after I’ve converted them all, what is the easiest way to delete the *.wav files but keep the *.flac files?

I could manually do that but again that would take ages…

Also, do I need to purchase the software to do this? I read the  licensing stuff  and it confuses me.

Is there some way to do the  ID3 tag better?

All of my files are artist  - Title.wav

So right now I can have it set where it puts the file name as the tag when it’s the *.wav file.

But what I really wish it could do is put the artist where I want it and the  title in the proper  fields.

 

Thanks again,

So starting a new thread .

So  I just tried switch and damn,  two files converting from *.wav to *.flac is fast as well… lol

But one thing which I’d like to do and not sure it can be done?

I’ve got  an entire folder full of sub folders of *.wav files that I want to convert to *.flac.

Can this software do that?

I saw where you could add files with the jaws curser but doing it this way would take ages.

Thanks,

Re: NCH software

One of these days.  But I don’t use my computer in ways that it matters.  I don’t do anything requiring me to submit personal information and I protect myself while online in ways like having JAVA scripts off on most sites and using Brave, which blocks ads when I use JAVA scripts.  Hacked advertising is a threat whatever version of Windows you are using. 
 
Also, I am not in a hurry to use a version of Windows which has major updates every six months and I can do everything I want with Windows 7.  Pluss there is the work involved in customizing the new machine and installing programs. 
 
So, while I expect to get a Windows 10 machine at some point, as I said, I’m in no hurry.

At least in Windows 7, the search function moved to with control e in Windows 7, searches subfolders as well as the folder you are in so that wouldn’t be satisfactory unless that behavior can be changed.  I see another list member has given you another option, but my question is, do you have the option to delete the original file automatically on conversion when you are converting to another format?  I once wanted to convert a file to the same format, MP3, but use different parameters such as bit rate.  Because it was going to use the same format, it asked about deleting the original file because they both would have the same name.

Yes, I checked the box that puts them in the same folder as the source folder.

That’s exactly what I want to do.

There are many many folders split up into artist and then in each artist are the tracks.

I don’t want to put all of the *.flac files in one folder, I want them all to go into the same folder as the *.wav files resign. So keeping the folder the same as the source folder does that, but it doesn’t delete the *.wav files when done.

I want it to delete the *.wav files after it converts them to *.flac. However I don’t believe this program can do that.

So in this case, once I’ve converted all of my *.wav files to *.flac, what would then be the easiest way to delete all of the *.wav files but make sure the *.flac files remain??

Is there some way that doesn’t involve me manually searching for all *.wav files?

I’m actually surprised there is no option to delete the original after conversion as an option, but this software doesn’t have that from what I see.

Which means there’s got to be another way that is more  automatic than I’m thinking.

Thanks,

John

The program runs as a full demo for a time, I don’t recall how long.  After that time, when you run it, a screen will appear asking you to verify that you are using the program as a home user in conformance with the free offer.  If you just press enter, you will have verified it and the program will open fully. 

 

I don’t know what the paid version does that the free version doesn’t do, but the free version does a lot and is likely to fill your needs.

 

As far as removing all the wave files, you can have the converted files be in a different folder.  If you have all the wave files you want to convert in one folder, then select them all and delete them, thus resulting in an empty folder. 

 

I used the program somewhat some time ago but I’ve hardly used it for a time and I’d have to look at the program to tell you in detail how to do things like change where converted files will go.  If you look around and have problems figuring out what you want to do, I’ll check the program if others haven’t answered your questions in a reasonable time.

 

I recall there is a check box that causes the converted files to be placed in the source folder.  To do what I am suggesting, this needs to be unchecked.  I don’t recall what the default setting is.

Great! Thanks!

Now  after I’ve converted them all, what is the easiest way to delete the *.wav files but keep the *.flac files?

I could manually do that but again that would take ages…

Also, do I need to purchase the software to do this? I read the  licensing stuff  and it confuses me.

Is there some way to do the  ID3 tag better?

All of my files are artist  - Title.wav

So right now I can have it set where it puts the file name as the tag when it’s the *.wav file.

But what I really wish it could do is put the artist where I want it and the  title in the proper  fields.

 

Thanks again,

Hi.  Yes, it can.  When you launch the switch programme press alt and you will have options to add a folder or a file etc.  It will also include subfolders.  Walter.

So starting a new thread .

So  I just tried switch and damn,  two files converting from *.wav to *.flac is fast as well… lol

But one thing which I’d like to do and not sure it can be done?

I’ve got  an entire folder full of sub folders of *.wav files that I want to convert to *.flac.

Can this software do that?

I saw where you could add files with the jaws curser but doing it this way would take ages.

Thanks,

John

No…

Actually, I want to search for all *.wav in a particular folder with subfolders on  the drive.

Then I can select them all and delete.

Here is a page that discusses how to only search the folder and no subfolders.  Since I don’t have Windows 10, I’m not sure if you can set this setting in a similar way in Windows 10 and Windows 7.  The method described here appears to be different.  It appears that once you begin a search, items are available such as not to search subfolders.  these instructions may help you set this option.  you may have to do so for each search.

I just figured out how to not have the Windows search search subvfolders in Windows 7. It may be the same in Windows 10 but the way you get to the part of the dialog in the folder you are working with may be different.  This may be a universal command that applies everywhere once you change it.  I’ll let others explain how to do this in Windows 10.  I’ll explain it for Windows 7 if no explanations for Windows 10 are given so that you can see if you can figure out how to do this in Windows 10.
