Hi Carlos,


I love Free Make, but it also installs some other unwanted stuff and the last few times I updated, unchecky wasn't able to stop or uncheck the appropriate check boxes.  I then had to use Revo or some other software to remove the unwanted stuff.  It's a nice program despite that.

Hi Group,


Well, I guess I'm just set in my ways.  I like to have total control.  Following the advice of this group, I have been able to adjust to the methodology described here and find the program quite usable after all.

I don't think you should.  After all, it's a portable version. 
 
if you did, you would have to have a setting to let things run as they do now or not to do so and I don't think the complication is worth the ability to change the output folder.  It's easy enough to open the folder and move the file.

Yes.  The launcher does this every time the program starts for the sake of portability and because the controls to configure the default folder are not very accessible.  I suppose I could work on this so the folder configured by the user in the settings file would be retained, but it just wasn't that important to me.

I just tried changing the output folder because I got more curious.  But the setting was replaced in the file with the original setting and the file was downloaded to the original location.  My guess, and obviously you would know, Carlos, is that at least that setting is written to the file every time the program is run.

I suppose you could change some of these settings by altering the correct cfg file.  It's a text file that you can open in notepad.  There is more than one but you'll know the right one when you open it.  I don't know the effects of altering this file and I'm not curious enough to experiment.  if anyone wants to experiment, make a backup of the original cfg file before making any changes.

Hi,
I don’t think that the presets are any different in the premium user version though I can’t say for sure as no screen reader can find the button one executes after entering said code least not with any screen reader I possess. but if I ever get it activated for sure I’ll surely update.

The controls for changing the default download folder are not accessible.  Also, remember that this version is supposed to be portable so the launcher configures a subdirectory in the root folder of the program named
"Downloads"
as the default.  The only bitrates and formats which are available are the ones listed in the
"Output Preset"
combo box, at least in the free version.  The bitrates and formats listed here should be sufficient for most users.

Hi Carlos,

 

Using NVDA, Free Youtube to MP3 converter that you referenced is not accessible. Nothing is read at all with the review cursor and I cannot find an OK button in tab order under settings or any other place.  I assume you are using JAWS?

Why not use the program Carlos made available in a portable version, FreeYouTubeToMP3Converter.  Of course, assuming the latest version is still accessible, you could use the nonportable version as well.  I'm not sure if the link Carlos used for the program is still available.  I'll let others comment on that.

I don’t think that the presets are any different in the premium user version though I can’t say for sure as no screen reader can find the button one executes after entering said code least not with any screen reader I possess. but if I ever get it activated for sure I’ll surely update.

The controls for changing the default download folder are not accessible.  Also, remember that this version is supposed to be portable so the launcher configures a subdirectory in the root folder of the program named
"Downloads"

I was just playing with the program and its even easier to open the output folder than I realized.  The item is in the menus so you don't have to tab around to it.  Just press alt, right arrow once, down arrow once and press enter.

if you did, you would have to have a setting to let things run as they do now or not to do so and I don't think the complication is worth the ability to change the output folder.  It's easy enough to open the folder and move the file.

Yes.  The launcher does this every time the program starts for the sake of portability and because the controls to configure the default folder are not very accessible.  I suppose I could work on this so the folder configured by the user in the settings file would be retained, but it just wasn't that important to me.

I suppose you could change some of these settings by altering the correct cfg file.  It's a text file that you can open in notepad.  There is more than one but you'll know the right one when you open it.  I don't know the effects of altering this file and I'm not curious enough to experiment.  if anyone wants to experiment, make a backup of the original cfg file before making any changes.

if you did, you would have to have a setting to let things run as they do now or not to do so and I don't think the complication is worth the ability to change the output folder.  It's easy enough to open the folder and move the file.

Yes.  The launcher does this every time the program starts for the sake of portability and because the controls to configure the default folder are not very accessible.  I suppose I could work on this so the folder configured by the user in the settings file would be retained, but it just wasn't that important to me.

I just tried changing the output folder because I got more curious.  But the setting was replaced in the file with the original setting and the file was downloaded to the original location.  My guess, and obviously you would know, Carlos, is that at least that setting is written to the file every time the program is run.

I suppose you could change some of these settings by altering the correct cfg file.  It's a text file that you can open in notepad.  There is more than one but you'll know the right one when you open it.  I don't know the effects of altering this file and I'm not curious enough to experiment.  if anyone wants to experiment, make a backup of the original cfg file before making any changes.

Hi,
I don’t think that the presets are any different in the premium user version though I can’t say for sure as no screen reader can find the button one executes after entering said code least not with any screen reader I possess. but if I ever get it activated for sure I’ll surely update.

The controls for changing the default download folder are not accessible.  Also, remember that this version is supposed to be portable so the launcher configures a subdirectory in the root folder of the program named
"Downloads"
as the default.  The only bitrates and formats which are available are the ones listed in the
"Output Preset"
combo box, at least in the free version.  The bitrates and formats listed here should be sufficient for most users.

Hi Carlos,

 

Using NVDA, Free Youtube to MP3 converter that you referenced is not accessible. Nothing is read at all with the review cursor and I cannot find an OK button in tab order under settings or any other place.  I assume you are using JAWS?

Hi Group,


I downloaded and installed a program called Youtube BLG--a program that
is supposed to convert Youtube videos to alternative forms such as MP3. 
It seems fairly accessible, but when I copy and paste the address into
the address bar in the program and click convert, it just hangs.


Is anyone else on list using this program and if so, how does it work

I suppose you could change some of these settings by altering the correct cfg file.  It's a text file that you can open in notepad.  There is more than one but you'll know the right one when you open it.  I don't know the effects of altering this file and I'm not curious enough to experiment.  if anyone wants to experiment, make a backup of the original cfg file before making any changes.

Hi,
I don’t think that the presets are any different in the premium user version though I can’t say for sure as no screen reader can find the button one executes after entering said code least not with any screen reader I possess. but if I ever get it activated for sure I’ll surely update.

The controls for changing the default download folder are not accessible.  Also, remember that this version is supposed to be portable so the launcher configures a subdirectory in the root folder of the program named
"Downloads"
as the default.  The only bitrates and formats which are available are the ones listed in the
"Output Preset"
combo box, at least in the free version.  The bitrates and formats listed here should be sufficient for most users.

Hi Group,


I downloaded and installed a program called Youtube BLG--a program that
is supposed to convert Youtube videos to alternative forms such as MP3. 
It seems fairly accessible, but when I copy and paste the address into

Yes, but I believe the premium version may allow you to add your own presets to the list.  Although again the controls for doing so are probably not accessible.

It's temporary, and it's insert+space, z. However, as I understand things, the guy's not using latest JAWS17 or 18 where it applies.

Sometimes, you have to make things worse, before you can then make them better than they were....

Hi Rajmund,

I know of a couple of ways to take Jaws back to factory defaults. 1 way is to remove everything in Manage Applications & the other way is to permanently delete everything from the ENU folder, after backing it up of course. Or, removing it & reinstalling. Are you considering a differt way? If so, which way?

I don't know what method the dude used to repair / reset his version of Jaws. He says that running Jaws in default mode makes his problem go away, but then he says that repairing doesn't help.

Subject: [TechTalk] Unexpected Jaws Verbalizations

Hi All,

A friend is having the following issues, & can anyone make any suggestions on how to fix the problems below?

using JAWS 16, I've been experiencing some weird behavior lately.
in a slightly higher pitch, JAWS will spontaneously say the number of
blank spaces followed by a pause before some text within a sentence and
sometimes at the end of a sentence.

JAWS will also speak in a deeper and slower voice, like when JAWS runs
out of breath when reading a long continuous stream of words.

for example: after Bellarc Advisor finishes it's updating and analyzing
and finally displays it's report, reviewing line by line, JAWS will say
3 spaces, The information on this page was created locally on your
computer by the Belarc Advisor. 3 spaces, Your computer profile, 3
spaces, was not sent to a web server. Copyright, (deep and slow voice),
2000-2016, back to normal voice), Belarc, Inc... All rights reserved.

reloading JAWS does not clear up this occurrence.. it happens on no
particular website and reading local HTML documents. I think this is
only happening to me and not a wide spread issue.

I've checked the text analyzer setting in the default and browser
configuration settings in settings center. it is off.
I've also checked my speech and sounds scheme, which is set to classic.
unloading and starting JAWS with default settings clears up the above
problem, but starting JAWS normally exhibits the problems, but the
configuration settings are no different as opposed to when the problem
occurs.

any suggestions as what to do to troubleshoot this annoyance?

Take care.

Mike,
 
I believe there’s a Microsoft .net Framework file that now gets in the way of JAWS repairs; so you have to uninstall the current .net framework amnd install an older version. (Microsoft will try to update it the first chance it gets or during Windows update.) That was the explanation that made most sense to me, when I had been asked to runm the repair in pursuit of diagnosing a problem between JAWS and Braille drivers. (It actually was a physical connectivity problem on the braille display, but the deniers were then in vogue. Anyhow, countless attempts at JAWS repair yielded nada at any rate. )
 
His solution might be to completely uninstall JAWS; then do a clean reinstall.

Re: Has Anyone Used YoutubeBLG and Does It Work For You?

The controls for changing the default download folder are not accessible.  Also, remember that this version is supposed to be portable so the launcher configures a subdirectory in the root folder of the program named
"Downloads"
as the default.  The only bitrates and formats which are available are the ones listed in the
"Output Preset"
combo box, at least in the free version.  The bitrates and formats listed here should be sufficient for most users.

I wanted to change the output or download folder from that long path to my easier to access folder.  I also may want to change formats and/or bit rates.

"Download File"
button.

Where are the OK buttons for the dialogues in settings?  I just don't see them with NVDA latest version.

Hi Carlos,


Using NVDA, Free Youtube to MP3 converter that you referenced is not accessible. Nothing is read at all with the review cursor and I cannot find an OK button in tab order under settings or any other place.  I assume you are using JAWS?

I am using YouTube DLG and although it does not have as many options as other downloaders, I am finding that it is very nice. I like the speed and quality of the downloads. And the interface is simple and accessible.

Why not use the program Carlos made available in a portable version, FreeYouTubeToMP3Converter.  Of course, assuming the latest version is still accessible, you could use the nonportable version as well.  I'm not sure if the link Carlos used for the program is still available.  I'll let others comment on that.

Hi Group,


I downloaded and installed a program called Youtube BLG--a program that
is supposed to convert Youtube videos to alternative forms such as MP3. 
It seems fairly accessible, but when I copy and paste the address into
the address bar in the program and click convert, it just hangs.


Is anyone else on list using this program and if so, how does it work
for you?

Hi Mike,
Isn't insert-space-jaws-space, the one you said the other way, puts it to factory settings for good? Is that just temporary?

Hi Rajmund,

I know of a couple of ways to take Jaws back to factory defaults. 1 way is to remove everything in Manage Applications & the other way is to permanently delete everything from the ENU folder, after backing it up of course. Or, removing it & reinstalling. Are you considering a differt way? If so, which way?

Take care.

Hi Mike,
But why not just factory reset it, rather than repairing it? Clearly, since it doesn't happen when in factory settings, it's a setting. So might as well reset JAWS, and put his settings back on it.

Hi Rajmund,

I don't know what method the dude used to repair / reset his version of Jaws. He says that running Jaws in default mode makes his problem go away, but then he says that repairing doesn't help. Sound like he's not repairing correctly because repairing Jaws correctly should take it back to factory settings! Sound like maybe he has some settings left in his ENU folder or something.
Take care.

Hi Guys,
But won't that factory reset it, anyway? WHEN I tried it just for the sakes of it, because I had nothing better to do, that's what it did. I might be wrong, however. If it does, wouldn't the guy just be able to factory reset, without repairing?

The string, which should be entered at the end of the path of the JAWS installer enclosed in quotes if it contains spaces is:
/Type repair

I can not remember the exact steps but it needs to be repaired, and not by just the simple repair, but a repair string needs to be typed in the run dialog box along with the latest jaws 16 exicutible.



Need to download the jaws 16 latest for their device, and then call tech support and they will walk you through it.

Hi All,

A friend is having the following issues, & can anyone make any suggestions on how to fix the problems below?

using JAWS 16, I've been experiencing some weird behavior lately.
in a slightly higher pitch, JAWS will spontaneously say the number of
blank spaces followed by a pause before some text within a sentence and
sometimes at the end of a sentence.

JAWS will also speak in a deeper and slower voice, like when JAWS runs
out of breath when reading a long continuous stream of words.

for example: after Bellarc Advisor finishes it's updating and analyzing
and finally displays it's report, reviewing line by line, JAWS will say
3 spaces, The information on this page was created locally on your
computer by the Belarc Advisor. 3 spaces, Your computer profile, 3
spaces, was not sent to a web server. Copyright, (deep and slow voice),
2000-2016, back to normal voice), Belarc, Inc... All rights reserved.

reloading JAWS does not clear up this occurrence.. it happens on no
particular website and reading local HTML documents. I think this is
only happening to me and not a wide spread issue.

I've checked the text analyzer setting in the default and browser
configuration settings in settings center. it is off.
I've also checked my speech and sounds scheme, which is set to classic.
unloading and starting JAWS with default settings clears up the above
problem, but starting JAWS normally exhibits the problems, but the
configuration settings are no different as opposed to when the problem
occurs.

any suggestions as what to do to troubleshoot this annoyance?

Take care.
Mike
