Hmm, unfortunately this seems to confirm my previous observation that the "Enhancements" tab is not always visible.

Try changing the bitrate of the card. That was another fix I found day before yesterday, but since I had already reverted back to 7, I didn't get a chance to try it.


All of the new features you'll find in the massive Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Jeremy <jeremy.richards7@...>
 

Please use the following link for more details, but I've copied and pasted
some of the content which will be most interesting to a screen reader user.
Also note the high customer satisfaction with Windows 10. It is also yet to
be seen how this update to Windows 10 will effect the screen reader user.

All of the new features you'll find in the massive Windows 10 Anniversary
Update -
http://www.techguide.com.au/news/apps-news-feed/all-of-the-new-features-youl
l-find-in-the-massive-windows-10-anniversary-update/

Today there are more than 350 million active devices running Windows 10
which has received the highest level of customer satisfaction than any other
Windows
operating system.

In the Windows 10 Anniversary Update there are hundreds of changes...

Security:

Windows 10 is the most secure version of Windows, and the Windows 10
Anniversary Update offers new features to help keep customers safe.
list of 2 items
• Windows Hello now works with compatible apps like DropBox, so you can sign
in fast and password-free. In future it will also work with websites too as
long as you’re using Microsoft Edge.
• Windows Defender, our free anti-malware service, now includes the option
to automatically schedule periodic quick scans of your PC; as well as
provide new notifications and summaries when scans are complete and threats
are found.
list end

Cortana

Cortana helps you be more productive with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

• Cortana is now above your lock screen so you can do common tasks such as
ask questions, play music from your PC or set a reminder before signing in.
Perfect for when you need something quickly.
•     Cortana helps save and recall information, like the name of that wine
you photographed   at dinner or your frequent flier miles. You can now add
photos or set reminders directly from Windows Apps like Microsoft Edge.
Cortana can also search within docs, not just in titles, to find what you’re
looking for.
• Cortana can move easily between devices (Windows 10 devices, iPhone,
Android and Cyanogen (Not yet available on iPhone and Android in Australia,
coming soon) so you can get and respond to notifications– like when your
phone battery is low or when you’ve received a WhatsApp or text
message—right from your PC.
• Cortana works great on apps, helping you better use more than a thousand
apps and services.

Microsoft Edge

In the Anniversary Update, Microsoft Edge helps you do more with increased
power efficiency, extension and accessibility.

list of 11 items
• A new accessibility architecture for Microsoft Edge supports modern web
standards, including HTML5, CSS3, and ARIA. With this update, page structure
and content are now exposed more clearly with assistive technology. Visual
presentation of web pages in high contrast mode is greatly improved to
provide additional visual context, while preserving text contrast. Also,
form entry when using keyboard navigation and screen readers improve in this
update making the browsing experience for people of all abilities better.
• Extensions have come to Microsoft Edge, letting users easily add new
functionality to what their browser can do. Find your favorite Microsoft
Edge extensions,
such as AdBlock, Adblock Plus, Pin it Button, Amazon Assistant, LastPass and
more, in the Windows Store.
• With your favorites bar enabled, you can right-click on the favorites bar
to have it show the favicons only, for a more efficient use of space. 
Another
right-click lets you add new folders for organization.
• Web Notifications in Microsoft Edge are fully integrated with the
notification platform and Action Center in Windows 10, providing a
consistent experience
with other apps across the system and easy controls over permissions and
Quiet Hours.
• You can now choose to have your browsing data cleared every time you close
your Microsoft Edge browser. This automatic action includes the ability to
select which browsing elements are cleared.
• Microsoft Edge is the only browser to natively support biometrics with
supporting sites, coming soon.
• Microsoft Edge already offers 17-70% more battery life than the
competitor, and the Anniversary Update brings dozens of improvements to
power efficiency,
informed from analyzing customer telemetry and experiments in our controlled
labs. These improvements are built into Microsoft Edge, so you don’t need
to change settings or turn on a power saving mode – every Microsoft Edge
user will receive these without a compromised experience.
• It’s easier than ever to keep your most-used sites and web apps available
at the top left of your browser window. Right-clicking in the tab lets you
pin the tab which shows just the site favicon.
• With an easy right-click of your back button, you can see the full history
of that tab – great for remembering where you were.
• Microsoft Edge’s Reading List is built into the browser, allowing users to
save items for offline viewing. Reading List is great for temporary content
you’d like to get back to, even when you don’t have an Internet connection.
• You can now copy any link into your clipboard, and right-click on the
address bar in Microsoft Edge and choose “Paste and go” from the context
menu.
Microsoft Edge pastes the URL into the address bar, and navigates to the
site. You can also copy words to your clipboard, and choose “Paste and
search.”
list end

Start Menu

There are improvements to the Start menu for better efficiency and
discoverability.

• This was a top request from users and developers: make Live Tiles
chase-able so you go right to the content you see on the tile.  For example,
if your news app shows a particular story, Windows passes this info to the
app so the app can display that story front and center when you click the
app’s Live Tile.
• With the expansion of the Recently Added apps list, you can see more of
the apps that you recently downloaded.
• The All Apps list is now elevated to the top level of Start menu for
quicker one-click access to your full list of apps.

Action Center

• The icon for Action Center is now placed on the far right of the
taskbar. There’s also a badge over the icon that displays the number of
outstanding notifications.   
• There are now 14 Quick Action tiles (like VPN, Note, Tablet mode and Quiet
hours) in the Action Center which can be arranged in any order you want. 
Easily add, remove and reposition them to reflect your priorities.

There are of course more features to come.

Hi,
You don't technically need an ISO to upgrade via Media Creation Tool. The
steps are as follows:
1. If possible, make a backup of your data (programs, installers, documents,
etc.).
2. Download latest version of your screen reader (in case of JAWS for
Windows, use the removal tool from Freedom Scientific to remove old JAWS
releases).
3. Download Media Creation Tool and run it.
4. Unless the option has changed, select "Upgrade this PC".
5. Select what to keep (keep everything or remove all).
6. Wait for some time (typically half an hour ormore).
7. after a while, press Windows+U to start Ease of Access, then select
Narrator.
8. If Narrator comes up talking, follow the prompt to finish setup (I and
others recommend using custom settings so you can turn off unnecessary
things).
9. After a while your screen reader or Narrator will come up talking.
10. For Anniversary Update and other builds: no need to invoke Narrator, as
the upgrade process is automatic.

Cheers,
Joseph

Hi Monica,
I'm not quite sure what you mean by a link for the install. You can upgrade
using either the "Get Windows 10" tray notification offered via Windows
updates or with the Media Creation Tool.

It should basically be a matter of following the prompts. You will be
given
the choice of keeping the programs you have installed during the upgrade
process. And if you are running JAWS, you should follow the instructions
here

Hi,
Make sure you have the latest version of your screen reader and check to
see if they have any advice for upgrading to Windows 10.

For example, Window-eyes 9.1 or earlier will not run on Windows 10, I
think the same holds true for JAWS 15 or below.
If you are running NVDA, you probably have the latest version.

Hi Carlos and list,



I want to upgrade a w-7 computer to windows 10, but since I do not feel
confident enough to do it myself, I am going to have a sighted relative
do it for me. However, she is not really that confident about doing it
either, so what I would like to know is it going to be as simple as just
following the prompts? Also, the programs I have on the windows-7
machine will they be on the windows-10 update? I apologize for these
stupid questions, but all of you on this list are my teachers. Thank
you for all suggestions.

Make sure you have the latest version of your screen reader and check to see if they have any advice for upgrading to Windows 10.

For example, Window-eyes 9.1 or earlier will not run on Windows 10, I think the same holds true for JAWS 15 or below.
If you are running NVDA, you probably have the latest version.

Hi Carlos and list,



I want to upgrade a w-7 computer to windows 10, but since I do not feel
confident enough to do it myself, I am going to have a sighted relative
do it for me. However, she is not really that confident about doing it
either, so what I would like to know is it going to be as simple as just
following the prompts? Also, the programs I have on the windows-7
machine will they be on the windows-10 update? I apologize for these
stupid questions, but all of you on this list are my teachers. Thank
you for all suggestions.

Hi Monica,
I'm not quite sure what you mean by a link for the install. You can upgrade using either the "Get Windows 10" tray notification offered via Windows updates or with the Media Creation Tool.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
Although most users seem to have had more success upgrading using the "Get Windows 10" method.

It should basically be a matter of following the prompts. You will be given
the choice of keeping the programs you have installed during the upgrade
process. And if you are running JAWS, you should follow the instructions
here
https://www.freedomscientific.com/support/TechnicalSupport/Windows10Upgrade
before you proceed with the upgrade.

Re: Upgrading to windows 10

Veronica, if these questions are stupid, and they are not, I would be as stupid as you. I’m not sure of the right way to go about it. I hear there are instructions on the Jaws web site for doing it with Jaws, and I’m going to check that out. I don’t have any sight help either so it makes me a little shaky as well. However, most of my friends who are blind say it worked well for them. My sister lives with me but she is computer illiterate.

New message sound

Mark Brett
 

Hi, When I get a message from a person or group that I have not set a rule for it to go into a folder so it stays in the inbox I get a new message sound.

 

If I get a new message from a person or group that has a rule to put it into a folder I don’t get a new message sound.

 

How can I set outlook 2016 to play a sound regardless of what folder receives the new message?

 

Many thanks

Re: Mp3s stop playing in Windows 10.

Marie
 

Win 10 will default to the new Groove Music which is not very accessible. So either right click on the file you want to play and if the option to play with Windows Media Player is available choose it or choose the Open with option to see which programs are available. For future use, Go into the setting by pressing the Windows key plus the letter I.
Under System settings, find Default programs and press enter then tab to the default for playing music and select Windows Media Player or whatever player you have installed.

I am using Windows 10 with JFW 17. I tried to listen to a podcast that I had downloaded but it kept stopping.  If I pressed the tab key it would continue.  This happened with 2 MP3 files.  I’ve just started using Windows 10 and am using whatever Windows picked to play the MP3 files.  How can I hear the whole file?

Re: Request Windows 10 search instructions

Carlos
 

The easiest way to search all locations in Windows 10 is via the search field in Explorer.  I don't know if this is still the case in Windows 10, but it is worth keeping in mind that in Windows 7 searching via the Start menu does not search all locations.  It only searches indexed locations and not all drives are configured as indexed locations by default.

I haven't experimented much with the Windows 7 search feature to find files.  But the small amount I've done indicates to me that the actual search disk feature, as opposed to the general start menu search may be better at finding files.  I therefore, on the rare occasions when I search for files use the disk search feature.  But I don't know if it is the same in Windows 10 in terms of the interface, though I suspect functionality is the same or similar.  But my guess might be wrong about that.

Hi all,

the search feature in Windows7 through Windows10 is what used to be
called in the Linux World, an incremental search.  Here's how it works.

If you are searching for a file called my_song_recording.mp3, you start
typing this into the search box.  As you type, the computer starts
searching for files starting with my and continues as you add more of
the file name.  the key here is not to press enter after you finish
tyuping.  I repeat, do not hit enter after typing.  If you do, the
incremental search will stop!

The * (star) is still and has always been your wild card, so you could
type  my_song*.mp3 and it would still find your file, providing you
don't stop the search by hitting 'enter'.

Wait a bit, and then arrow down to see the list of what the 'puter found.
