Nothing scary about it, really. What do you think the Maps app is for? Also the compass. You've probably got Location turned on in at least one app, anyway.

Well, it sounds like you don't have your info put into Siri . So why not try
asking for a specific weather at a specific location. For example: What is
the weather in Tallahassee, Florida and see what she says.
If she answers then I would ask her who I am and see what she say's and if
she don't know she will say something like you can put your info in so and
so. And then go and put your info in for her. But I think your info is set
in Siri such as your name and address and so on.

Hi rajmun,
Well, I finally got around to reading your post and it was the most
helpful of all, as you included that extra little bit that I really
needed.

Ok, i now have that all set up, but this time when I asked about
weather it said no weather available. I'm pretty sure that the weather
is on, but not absolutely, any reason why it should tell me that, and
is there anything else i need to change?
many thanks,

Well, I would go to settings and general and Siri and then my info I think
it is called and put in my info for her/him. Then back out of settings and
close all apps out of the foreground and in the app switcher and then reboot
the phone or device and then see what happens. I think this will solve your
problem . That is also if you have location turn on in settings and have
location turn on in any app you want it to know your location . HTH

I need to know witch words are underline on a text line. When I am reading lines of text. I was thinking that maybe jaws has a way to let us know when we are reading text, changing the voice or the pitch of the voice, that those words are underline. Anybody know if it is possible?

For information on mounting drives/sharing folders, see this article.
As for copying and pasting, based on everything I am seeing, in VirtualBox it only works for sharing text and not for transferring files at this point.  Sorry I can't help much more, but I don't use VirtualBox very often so I forget a lot of this stuff.  Reviewing the documentation and some Google searches might provide more information.
