If your device manager has specks for four processor cores, you have four cores, not two cores and two hyper-threaded ones. If you had two cores, you would only see two cores.

Hi,

A USB C port feels a bit like lightning port on new iPhones.

Hi,

A Thunderbolt port looks sort of like a mini version of a modern monitor cable port but can transfer things fast.

Power Share refers to the ability for a USB port to power a device when the computer is off (for example, when charging your phone).

The lock slot might be Kensington security lock slot where you attach a cable to secure the computer to a surface.

As for processor, you may have a dual-core processor with Hyper-Threading on (this is a way for a single physical processor core to work with two programs or threads at once). To verify my hypothesis, we need to know exactly what the processor model is (Device Manager should say that) – that is, we need to know the exact model of this CPU so we can tell you if it is truly a quad-core (as some may have claimed) or is a Hyper-Threaded dual-core.

Cheers,

Joseph

Well got my laptop today and been working o it.

Now it say it in the device manager under processers it has 4 processers all at 2.7 GHZ . It say nothing about cores. Or I don’t know where to look at.

So now some questions: (1) this thing seems to have only two USB ports. One on each side.   Here is what it is saying: 2 USB 3.0 - 1 w/PowerShare
1 SD card reader (SD, SDHC, SDXC)
1 Headset jack
1 Noble lock slot
1 Thunderbolt™ 3 supports: Power in / charging, PowerShare, Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps bi-directional), USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps), VGA, HDMI, Ethernet and USB-A via Dell Adapter

 

So what is this Thunderbolt™ and what does it look like or atleast feel like? I assume you have to have adapter to use this like a USB port?

Also what is : 1 w/PowerShare and what does it look like and feel like maybe?

What in the heck is a Noble lock slot?

There is also on the left side feels like a button and pushes in like one but don’t seem to popop out like a SD card reader  it only seems to push in and seems to do nothing. But I think there is a tiny hole maybe for speakers or mic  or line in maybe. So maybe this button changes between them depending on what you got plut in to them?

Another question is there any way to turn off the laptop display? I can go into device manager and disable it but don’t know what would happen. Do they make a third party say screen curtain that would just black out the display? Like on your iPhone or mac if you had one?

Thanks for any input!

I don’t think it’s exclusive to outlook 2010 or jaws 18. I have jaws 17 and using outlook 2016, and I have that focus issue as well.

I’m typing in an email, whatever I wrote at the end, or the middle, for example, I find it at the top of the email some times, or somewhere else other than where it should be. It began just recently, so I just compose my emails from word and send it that way, since that doesn’t occur in word..

Subject: [TechTalk] Recent Jaws issue with typing and focus jumping around

 

Hello list,

So I don’t know what I may have done, but for the last few days, I have been experiencing an incredibly annoying issue with Jaws and composing Outlook messages.

When I begin to type, the first few letters are spoken by jaws even though I’ve always had this setting to echo speech off. The more frustrating thing is that focus will jump around and what I type is spread out all over the document. This is especially annoying when I’m working off a template text and have to go hunt for the stray letters.

The thing is, if I type the first couple of letters and then erase them, everything works fine.

I have to believe that in all my typing, I must have accidentally enabled some sort of odd setting since this has only been a recent issue and I don’t experience it in a standard Word document. Only in Outlook messages. My version of Outlook is 2010 and my messages are set to HTML. I am using the most recent version of Jaws 18.

Does anyone have an idea of what may be causing this issue or what setting I might try to change to fix it? That or is there some sort of set to default setting in Outlook for composing messages?

Thanks,

From my experience, I found that it depends on your rehab counselor as to how long it takes for a client's case to be opened or for any other issue that needs to be taken care of. I have had counselors who are very prompt and then I have had counselors who drag their feet about anything and everything.

How long does it take to open a case, though? In IL it takes months to do this and you won't get very much one on one assistance in your home environment unless you travel to the other end of the state for residential training.

Also, will they provide technical support if you're experiencing problems
with a computer or other devices? That was the original issue being
discussed.

Gene,

Referring to the email I sent out, no this is not related to my work, but it
is related to living independently. The department of rehab where I live
does not only serve people who are a student or who are employed. Blind
people do live independently, and you should know this yourself. I can
schedule an appointment with a tech volunteer to meet at their office, and
learn about a computer or an iPhone. This service is free. If I need more
extensive training, the department of rehab will open my case as they would
do for anyone because this is the service they provide. It is called
independent living skills. Where the computer comes in is: people do need a
computer to shop online, pay bills online, manage accounts online and other
business accounts online, communicate through email, fill out forms online,
check personal status online, refill meds online, look up important and
personal info online, schedule appointments online, schedule deliveries
online, read mail and etc. It is the same as rehab providing mobility
lessons, and not only if the person is a student or employed.

This is very understandable!

Janet

Hi Carolyn,
I just realized I think I must be fortunate because where I live, I can
call blind techy volunteers for an appointment who will help me to learn
what I might want to learn on the computer or iPhone. If I need more tech
help, I can call the department of rehab, and they will open a case for me
to go to get more extensive computer training.

That’s not what happens in the real world. When you are a client, the state
is paying the agency to train you and do all they are supposedly supposed
to. When you are no longer a client, there is no money coming there way
concerning you. So, they couldn’t care less! Pam.

I strongly disagree. A blindness rehab agency should go out of its way to
help a blind computer user who requests technical assistance, even if he is
not a client. I wouldn’t expect their technology specialist to visit my
home or spend a lot of time over the phone trying to resolve my problem.
But it is not unreasonable for them to at least recommend a reputable local
service technician who is familiar with screen reader software and other
issues relevant to blind computer users. After all, if you can’t get help
from a blindness agency, where else can you turn?

There is no reason for rehab to help people who are not clients. I don't
mind reasonable criticism of rehab agencies but this is not reasonable.

In my experience, contacting a blindness rehab agency and asking one of

open case with them. A few years ago when my old XP computer died I tried
contacting the technology trainer at the rehab center who had originally set
it up for me in my apartment a few years earlier when I was still working
with them, but he ignored my pleas for help. I even contacted their
director of community services and was basically told to take a hike because
they could not offer any assistance or even recommend a knowledgeable
service technician unless I had an open case. Thank goodness my techie
friend was able to bail me out.

Hello andrew, it is good to know that your computers up and working again.
You're us in for future support I'm trying to get things fixed eventually, I
would recommend looking at Best Buy or Staples or a local computer shop in
your area. If it is blindness related, I would see is there any blindness
trainers in your area, dad have interest in maybe helping fix your problems.
Any of the services that I've mentioned above Will cost but very well worth
it in the end. If you don't know how to find a good blemish related trainer
in your area, I would looking contacting your local dollars office.. offers
anything through it's office.

Hi Carlos and all, I’m asking this because I recently made a call to ms

I needed help updating my security update for my Office 2010.
I really nice lady helped me but, made no headway. I was sent to escalation.
The fellow thought uninstalling my Outlook 2010 would solve this.. He was
wrong! It was not a good thing at all. They did more harm than good. With
the help of friends, my pc has returned back to somewhat normal. My Outlook

Re: jaws and abby fine reader

I'll let others advise you.  The settings may have different names in your much newer version and the way you get to them may be different.  I can't be sure but it sounds as though you are getting poor recognition because your scanning settings aren't making proper images for good recognition.  but we'll see as things develop.

Hi,

 

I’m using latest jaws 17 on a windows 10 pro and abby fine reader version 12.

I’ve never been able to scan and read documents. I need help.

I’ve put the paper in the scanner, clicked scan to word, selected plain text, I think it’s called dtI? I chose 300, scanned it and I just get jibrish. I mean, it’ll read text here and there but I find myself needing to decipher what has been scanned.

How can I get a crisp and clear document to read?

Thanks.
