Re: Intro and internet explorer question

Michael <mike122061@...>
 

Hello,
 
The first thing that you might want to check, is to see that your pop up blocker is turned on. Open the tools menu by pressing Alt + T, then arrow down to Pop Up Blocker and press enter on this as well. Now, press enter once more if it reads Turn Pop Up Blocker On.
 
Another solution would be to run an Ad Ware cleaner such as ADW Cleaner and this will remove many pop ups from your computer. One of these solutions should stop this behavior.

Hello list
My name is Fanus Buys and I live in South Africa.
 
I have a problem with IE10 in that when I open a site many times a mail voice pops up wanting to tell me how to make much money. I can not figure out where it comes from and it is louder than the jaws voice, so it is difficult to hear jaws. Is there a keystroke to block this guy from interpheering?
 
I hope this is not off topic and if so, I am sorry but I do not know where to ask.

Hi,
Yes, I have tried NVDA, and yesterday when I was talking to Freedom
Scientific, they asked me to use narrator. Then we noticed that even
using narrator some parts are not very accessible. The girl in Tech
support FS told me that if narrator is not reading that part, it means
that the problem is not of jaws, it is an accessibility problem of
Microsoft.Days before Freedom Scientific told me that the spelling
dialog in word 2013 is not accessible. Also the signature dialog in
outlook 2013 is not accessible either. So I am a little bit confused
because I noticed these problems that FS told me, but I notice that
the degree of accessibility in another areas is very different in
each computer.
Why this level of accessibility change in each computer?

Hey all,
My name is Ty Littlefield; I wanted to introduce myself since I've
just joined here.

I am currently attending wentworth institute of technology for a major
in Computer Science. I'm mostly self-taught and started using a
braille lite around 12 or so, when I picked up the basic book by Dan
Zingaro and taught myself basic. Having been infected, I've done
everything I can to forget those dark times, although I'd still love
to find a Braille Lite and all the basic stuff to play with again.

My focus is on performance, systems level programming and security. I
worked at Acquia last summer where I worked on drupal 8 performance,
so that we could improve the performance before release. I also did a
bit of security work. If you're looking for a head-spin, one of the
larger projects under my belt was a profiling test which tested
patches we committed to detect regressions in performance. The test
ran in a testing framework, which installed Drupal which installed
Drupal which ran another test. So it was kind of like a test, three
times removed.

My main hobbies are mostly programming, I have a toy OS I've been
working on, as well as an open-source mud engine, written in c++ which
uses Angelscript for scripting. I'm also going to start at some point
this semester doing some web design on the side, as my time with
Drupal has given me a lot of experience.

I am also the owner of the Freelists Macvisionaries list, which has
kind of spun off of the parent list.

I look forward to this list, I hope to be as much help as possible and
learn a lot along the way.

Re: Programs to clean the computer whether free or expensive

Another cleaning utility worth mentioning is Junkware Removal Tool.
It is fairly automated and now seems to be supported by Malwarebytes Corporation.  Although it is worth noting that like DWCleaner, it will shut down all running applications including your screen reader.

Re: Intro and internet explorer question

Hi Fanus,
I don't currently have the Pro version installed so I can't be sure, but I believe it does perform a scheduled scan.  However, it is possible that by default the scheduled scan is only a quick/flash scan which does not scan the entire drive.  If so, you may wish to perform a full scan manually.  A full scan is more thorough and may find things that a quick scan will not.

Hello list,

So my wife’s more a night owl and I’m an early bird. Thus, I am in search of
some sort of vibrating alarm clock/device that I can perhaps tuck under my
pillow or preferably strap to my ankle where I can wake up at a certain time
without using a traditional alarm. Be it a standalone clock or even my
iPhone.

It doesn’t even have to be blind accessible per say as I can always use my
wife’s eyeballs to set whatever time I want.

I would imagine something like this would be geared towards the deaf crowd,
but I have no idea what such a device is called or what to look for.

Doing a quick search on Amazon, I really only find one result. Something
called the silent vibrating personal alarm clock by Tec Tools. It has pretty
crappy ratings though.

Can anyone recommend anything or what to look for?
