Another bit of useful information about Rumola

Carlos
 

I decided to experiment a bit and finally verified that the bookmark version of Rumola does in fact store an activation signature in the bookmarklet file itself.  I deleted my existing copy and when I added it to the Favorites Bar again, selecting it told me that I had no credits left.  I then replaced it with a copy of the original and it once again recognized that I have credits remaining.  I personally keep my favorites on a separate drive which I also backup so even if I have to reinstall Windows or restore from an image, the original copy would be left intact.  However, most users keep their favorites on the primary drive so if you were to reinstall Windows and didn't have the original backed up somehow, you would have to add it to your Favorites Bar again and of course the new copy would not contain your activation signature.  So an interesting question is what happens at this point?  Do you simply lose your existing credits?  Well, the answer at this point is that I'm not sure.  You would think that logging in to the account which is automatically created for you when you initially purchase credits would simply reactivate the new copy of the bookmarklet, but it doesn't.  LOL I suppose it's only $0.99 for 50 credits, but if you care about retaining your existing credits in an emergency, you might want to consider backing up this file.


Re: inserting date and time in m s word 2010

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

Hi all:

Ann: You said: " One caveat, by default, Word updates the date field if you
use alt-shift-d without configuring the format and presentation in the
actual insert ribbon. Therefore, it will update the field whenever you go
back to the document and read or edit it, so if you don't want a letter's
date to be automatically changed by Word, make sure that option is unchecked
on the insert ribbon."

That box is unchecked, and the date updated when opening the document just
now... Thoughts?

Hi all,

Arrrghghgh!!! No wonder my motto is "why aggravate yourself?".

To insert the date into a word document, any word document press
alt-shift-d, as in date. To insert the time into a word document, any word
document press alt-shift-t, as in time. I believe in the KISS principle.

Also, Gene, just to clarify, what they're talking about are the ribbons in
Word. Forget 'em, just use the commands above. Now, if you want to choose
a date format or a time format, then, go to the insert ribbon with alt-n.
The direct command to insert the date is alt-n-d, but you don't have to do
this if you're satisfied with the date format. One caveat, by default, Word
updates the date field if you use alt-shift-d without configuring the format
and presentation in the actual insert ribbon. Therefore, it will update the
field whenever you go back to the document and read or edit it, so if you
don't want a letter's date to be automatically changed by Word, make sure
that option is unchecked on the insert ribbon. Or, do what I do and simply
type in the date where you want it.

HTH,
Ann P.

Re: Rumola question

Carlos
 

Hi Donald,
When you look in the Favorites Bar submenu, what is the Rumola bookmark labeled?  This should give an idea if the bookmarklet was added or the link to the Rumola site itself.  It should be labeled
.. RUMOLA ....

I followed Carlos' excellent instructions for installing the Rumola bookmarklet extension in Internet explorer 11.  But I  either installed it incorrectly or am not understanding what to do now.  At any rate, after opening I E 11 and using Alt A to open the favorites, I keep hitting the letter R until I get to Rumola.  I then hit enter, and that You Tube video begins to play.
 
 
Incidentally, during the installation, I did use the tab key rather than the down arrow.  I want to get to that link which asks me to add credits but can't figure out what to do now.

Re: Performing a fresh install of Windows 10

 

no.
this used to hapen on older bios.
the internal hard drive would be kept at the last device of booting
and then the system would go first to cd then to floppy and then to
the others.
so this is how it does.
there cant be a cd which would do such a thing.
cause once the bios hands over control to a device and if it has any
boot files then the control cannot be got back.

That's right. I heard somewhere about a bootable cd that will hand over
control to a USB drive, but I can't find it anywhere (although I haven't
looked too hard.) What happens, I think, you boot from cd as normal.
Something on the cd probes the USB ports for boot files and then the cd
does something so that the bios can see it.

Two Free EASI Webinars on Training Staff to Caption Multimedia


Wade Technical Community College is the largest multi-campus community college in North Carolina, and Susanne Van Dorpe has

developed both beginner and advanced training on captioning for its staff. Susanne is presenting 2 Webinars for EASI on

Monday, Feb. 1 and Monday Feb. 8. At Wade, there is more content than a single person can caption, and she is kept busy

equipping staff at multiple sites on captioning the content for the college's distance learning programs.


If you need to learn about captioning, these Webinars will fill your need. If you are training others on how to caption,

Susanne can share her experiences on training and motivating captioners.


You can register online for either or both of these Webinars from:

http://easi.cc/clinic.htm <http://easi.cc/clinic.htm>

Hi Billy,
You can either change the boot sequence in the BIOS or you can just
select
the drive from the boot menu if you know the key which activates it on
your
system. F12 seems to be most commonly used, but it will vary depending
on
the manufacturer.
As for installing Windows, it does not include a copy of the Windows
installation files. Once you have booted into the PE, you have to
manually
run Windows setup from your own copy of the installation files or
installation media. You will have speech available during the initial
part
of setup. You will lose speech when setup needs to reboot, but at that
point no further interaction is required until the installation is
complete.
When the installation is complete, you can just start Narrator with
Windows
key U which should work in all versions of Windows going back to XP or
Windows key Enter which sounds like it may work on Windows 10 on the
setup
screen.

What's new:

this

you
will not be able to create shortcuts for them on the Desktop or Start

There may be a way to add shortcuts for new applications dynamically

2. All utilities which were added to or updated in Win10PE, were also

3. Rufus seems to be superior in every way to the method I was
previously
using to create the self-extracting/self-writing USB images so I have
done
the same thing with Win7PE that I did with Win10PE. A single image is
now

Re: Converting .RAR to .ZIP

Okay. I guess not. I already sent you a message about 7zip, thinking that you wanted something that would unzip rar files. Pam.

I don't have a problem with the zipping and unzipping process. In fact,
WinRar is what I already use. I just wanted to know if I could skip the
step of unzipping and re-zipping part. Ddin't think so, but thought I'd ask
on the off chance...
I put a lot of my stuff in Google Drive with some being in the .RAR format.
I wanted to avoid the middle step, but oh well...

Hello list,

I know  I can do this by unzipping the .RAR file and re-zipping  it in the .ZIP format, but can  you  also just change the extension from .RAR to .ZIP with the rename option instead of  having  to go through the unzipping and re-zipping process and  not affect the files?

I want  to upload some MP3 files to play in VoiceDream, but they’re in .RAR.

Just curious Thanks.

I am typing recover in the startmenu search box then from the list there is one in control panel about recovery in it there is a restart now button and here I am waiting say 30 seconds then I down arrow without speech once and if I have Carlos's win10pe on a fat32 formatted usb drive in the pc windows boots from it.
Original message:

Hi Billy,
You can either change the boot sequence in the BIOS or you can just select
the drive from the boot menu if you know the key which activates it on your
system. F12 seems to be most commonly used, but it will vary depending on
the manufacturer.
As for installing Windows, it does not include a copy of the Windows
installation files. Once you have booted into the PE, you have to manually
run Windows setup from your own copy of the installation files or
installation media. You will have speech available during the initial part
of setup. You will lose speech when setup needs to reboot, but at that
point no further interaction is required until the installation is complete.
When the installation is complete, you can just start Narrator with Windows
key U which should work in all versions of Windows going back to XP or
Windows key Enter which sounds like it may work on Windows 10 on the setup
screen.

hi Carlos, hope you don't mind me asking,
I take it you have to change the bios boot up sequence before running the
win10 USB version of the win10p software?, and if so, does the program setup
program run to the complete install, or are there some things to do during
instalation?, Billy

Hi, Carlos has one now for w10 he made so you might want to get it. See
below for info on it.


I was bored so I decided to update Win7PE as well. Although this may
possibly be the last update. Trying to keep both projects up to date is a
bit more work than I want to deal with. This final update is basically
because I hate to leave anything unfinished. A request was made and there
were some minor things I meant to update eventually before the issue of
Win10PE and UEFI was raised.


What's new:


1. Win7PE now has the same file structure as Win10PE. I.E. Applications
are
no longer run from RAM and are now stored in the root of the drive in a
folder named Programs. Of course you can add other applications to this
folder, but this is nothing special since you could previously do the same
thing by just manually creating a folder and using it to store additional
programs which were not integrated directly into the PE. However, what
this
means is that you can now update and configure existing integrated
portable
applications in the Programs folder. As a specific example, you could
configure NVDA with your own preferences and ad-ons. Yes, you can also do
this with Win10PE. If you add new applications to the Programs folder,
you
will not be able to create shortcuts for them on the Desktop or Start
menu.
There may be a way to add shortcuts for new applications dynamically
without
having to recompile the PE, but that possibility will require some work
and
investigation on my part. It sounds like a nice feature to have so I will
look into it for a future update. LOL if I can come up with a convenient
way to do this, it may mean at least one more update for Win7PE.


2. All utilities which were added to or updated in Win10PE, were also
updated and added to Win7PE including NVDA of course.


3. Rufus seems to be superior in every way to the method I was previously
using to create the self-extracting/self-writing USB images so I have done
the same thing with Win7PE that I did with Win10PE. A single image is now
capable of being burned to a disc or written to a USB drive so there are
now
only two images of Win7PE instead of four. A 32 bit edition and a 64 bit
edition.


That is all.

Hello all:


I'm preparing for a fresh install of Windows 10 on my laptop.
By fresh install I mean to install Windows 10 on a clean system - no
currently running OS on the system disk.


I've done this with both Windows 7 and 8.1 in the past using Carlos's
WinPE
images.


Ok, to my question:


I boot into WPE start the installation of Windows 10.
When done the system will reboot and most likely do some more setup stuff
and after a while one can continue setting up Windows.
At this point I will have no speech but in the past I start Narrator at
this
point to finish setup.


Is the keyboard command still windows+u then alt+n to start Narrator at
the
Windows 10 Welcome screen or whatever it's called?


Thanks,


-Øyvind

Or, if the person is having trouble extracting the file, 7zip will do it. I'm sorry; I haven't followed this thread from the beginning. Pam.

I had to disable secure boot on my uefi system to get usb flash drives
to show up in the boot menu.
Now I simply hold ESC down for a couple of seconds to access the boot
menu on my asus laptop and then press arrow down once to get to the
usb flash drive and hit enter to boot from it.
