My iPad won't start now that I've downloaded the latest iOS 10.3 update! Help!

Victor
 

Hi all:

I downloaded the latest iOS update to my iPad about 30 minutes ago and
it will not start.

I had to download it twice because it told me that there wasn't enough
space the first time I tried. So, I deleted an app I seldom use and I
downloaded it again. Since then, I can't restart my iPad.

I've been told by someone on another list that it might be stuck in
recovery mode and I can only get it out of that mode by connecting it
to a computer with iTunes and by looking for a button that says
restore or something like that. I only have a Linux laptop and the
Windows computers around here don't have iTunes. I may have to wait
until I see my girlfriend this weekend as she has iTunes on her
laptop.

Please note: I connected my iPad to a Windows computer a while ago
just to see what might happen. When I did, I heard that Windows
computer make a sound. Plus, when I disconnected and reconnected the
iPad, and when I turned the iPad off and on, I heard the Windows
computer make a sound. Therefore, I think the iPad is still working.
This is
scaring me! Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Victor

manual virus scans with free avast?

Troy Burnham
 

Hi All,
 
Can anybody tell me how to do a manual virus scan with Jaws using the free avast?  Or rather I really just need to know how to read the results because I can get the scan started.
 
I just did a scan and all I could find using the jaws cursor on unrestricted mode was the things on my desktop, nothing about avast though.
 
Btw this is windows 7 and I'm using jaws 16.
 
Thanks.

Malware Bytes on pc start-up

J. chang
 

Hello All,

A question that has confounded me since the installation of the new and current version of Malware Bytes.  On PC boot-up, I will always get a window saying that "Malware Real Time Protection has been turned off - and if I want to start it up again, click a box within the message." 

After clicking the message, the entire message will disappear but will re-turn again when the computer downloads something else or until I click the "X" box - top right hand corner of the message box.

I have tried to go thru the settings to correct this, but have not been able to locate a setting that will affect this.  The license is current.


Thank you,


--jeff

Ah, Now I see what you mean.

Well, from my point of view, Accessibility has been sliding backwards
for several years.

I have voiced this opinion before, and some may disagree, and others
share my point of view.

With a New Standard, and one that doesn't cooperate well with Screen
Readers, this could cause serious cuts in levels of Access in the coming
years.

Guess before I Push the Panic Button, I'll need to wait and see just how
this New Standard manifests itself.

Enis, do you know who is pushing this New Standard the most?

Hi,
when in main window of the program or app whatever they’re calling them these days (smile) go to timelines menu and click on manage. In there you’ll see what is set to show and what is hidden and you can change them as needed to suit you.
I hope that helps.

Hi Mike, You say that you use a third party program. Does this program keep your windows always maximized?
 
If it does, would you give me its name and where to find it?
 
I would ve so very thankful!! 
 
So far, the various instructions that have been sent to me, at best only remain effective during the session that the computer is up.  The commands end with the OK button and there is no save.  I think that is why I loose these fixes each time I reboot.
 
Thank you everyone who has tried to help! I do really appreciate all your attempts to help me!!

Hi There!

Unless they have disabled it, I used to use the 'ALT -' to maximize child windows.  This has been several versions of windows ago though.  Just a suggestion. Catch Ya All Later! de

Also there are ‘document windows’ that may need to be maximized from within Word. It may be that, although Microsoft Word itself is maximized the ‘child window’ - active document at the time is not. Perhaps ctrl+F6, then if there is a document in focus there maximize it in the usual way. Now, there used to be keystrokes for manipulating child windows as distinct from application windows. (Ctrl+F4 closes the ‘active document or child window’), but I can’t find them here. Windows10 has extra keystrokes that may accomplish much the same thing, like with the Windows + arrow keys.

Hi Mike,
 
A couple of points worth considering.  First, not all programs retain the size/state of their windows between sessions.  This is an application specific feature.  Second, I don't know if this is the case with Office and if so, I couldn't tell you where to look since I don't use it myself, but some applications also have settings to determine whether they retain the size/state of windows between sessions.

    Hi All,
 
An acquaintance running Windows 7 pro 64 bit, Jaws 16, & Office 2016 is having a problem with her computer not remembering Window size settings during a current session.  i.e, if she maximizes document in Word, or maximizes other windows using the, Windows key + up arrow, or the, Alt, Enter, + X, keystrokes she says that she has to maximize these same windows everytime she opens them.  Personally I use a 3rd party program, so I never have this problem, & don't have a clue as to what the answer is to make her system remember current session window settings.  If anyone has an answer for this, would you please share?  All help & input will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.
Take care.

Re: accessible musical notes tuner

Roger Cusson
 

Hi Greg,

I think you may be able to use a program called: Digital Guitar Tuner 2.3.

It can be found at:
http://www.guitar.sk/download/dgt230.exe

It is initially set up for use with a room microphone, so you can play your
particular instrument, and see the tuning on-screen. Not to worry, however,
as you can go into the Device menu, from the standard pull-down menu bar,
with the alt key, and arrowing across to Device, then down to MIDI, and
press Enter or the shortcut, CTRL+M.

Also, under the Main menu, you can change the tuning types, the options, the
frequency the percentage and any other thing you might want to try. I have
mine set so that a grand piano plays the notes, and the tone is very good.
Also, since it was initially designed to be a standard guitar tuning device,
although I use it for tuning the various tom pitches on my drum set, you
should know that using the numbers or the numpad, pressing keys 1 through 6,
will play the notes that you have set in the tuning types. Remember, it
ships with standard guitar tuning, however, you can choose from over 25
types of standard and non-standard tunings, so you will be sure to find an
appropriate pitch or a set of notes, at least, which should meet your needs.
Pressing the number 0 or numpad 0, will turn off the sample for that note.
If you have any questions, please let me know.

So, using 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and finally 0, once you get your tuning
parameters set up, will play all the notes, and stop the samples.

Re: Vista Support Ending, What should I Do?

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

It depends on the condition of your existing computer. What about its hardware? How much memory does it have?

Since Vista is a nightmare when it comes to OS's my vote is for a new computer. I'd look at Computers For The Blind. You can get a whole system from them for $110.00. I'd either go with Win7, if I could get it, or Win10. Forget 8.1, it's not worth the paper it's printed on.

The old adage about not putting new wine into old bottles comes to mind. However, if money is a concern, then you want to see what's doable within the budget you have.

Original message:

With Microsoft ending support for Windows Vista sometime in April, and being that my computer is 9 years old, I'm wondering what I should do. Let me explain.
I am still back at IE8 and JAWS11. I am contemplating using the ninite website, downloading Firefox, and NVDA. After I do that, I will also have to find something for malware and anti virus that I can successfully use. I am not familiar with NVDA at all so I know that will take some getting used to. Most people that I have talked to seem to like it, however.
I guess, what I'd like to know is this even a good option for me or, should I wait till I can afford a newer computer. Would it be worth it to try to upgrade my operating system to, say, Windows7?
Any help that can be provided will be appreciated. Money is an object.

accessible musical notes tuner

Greg Daniel <gdaniel@...>
 

Hi everyone,

I play in an all-brass-and-percussion band, and we recently talked about tuning our instruments. Although several examples of Iphone and Smartphone apps were shared, no one mentioned an application that would run on a desktop computer, much less an application accessible with a screen reader. So, does anyone have experience with such a musical note tuner? Although I do concentrate on the accuracy of notes issuing from my cornet, I could use help with its tuning, and I don't own a keyboard for doing so.

Thanks,

Greg

NVDA Certified Expert Accreditation

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi everyone,


NV Access is very pleased to offer NVDA Certified Expert accreditation.  The certification tests your knowledge of all aspects of the free NVDA screen reader.  The exam is online and available now at https://certification.nvaccess.org/.  Free for anyone to sit, the test is time limited and takes less than an hour.

 

Once you pass the exam, you have the opportunity to become an NVDA Certified Expert.  For $100 AUD (approximately $75 USD), you receive:

·         An individual certificate in an accessible PDF, suitable for printing.

·         An “NVDA Certified Expert” logo, which advertises your accreditation.  Some ideas for using this are your website, e-mail signature, business card or fliers.

·         Listing on the official website at https://certification.nvaccess.org/.

·         The knowledge that your support helps to make computers accessible all over the world.

 

We love hearing from our users!  We have already received some great feedback about the accreditation.  Users have asked to opt-in to add contact details to their listing as an NVDA Certified Expert.  Listings with contact information would enable users to search the list for a local NVDA Certified Expert.  This desire to help others is so typical of our fabulous community!  We agree that this is a fantastic way to get more users helping each other.  We are not quite ready to roll out a more detailed certified experts page yet, but rest assured we are working on it.

 

So, what should you study to prepare to become an NVDA Certified Expert?  If you have the "Basic Training for NVDA" module, then that is a great place to start.  Note that purchasing that module is NOT required to sit the exam or become accredited.  Some of the key elements you should be familiar with include:

 

·         Starting, basic setting up and use of NVDA

·         Getting around Windows and reporting the current focus or window title

·         Switching between programs, accessing the Start menu, taskbar and system tray

·         Navigating the NVDA menu and familiarity with the menu items available.

·         Understanding settings, where to find them and how to change them

·         Changing settings with desktop or laptop keystrokes

·         Reading, writing, editing and navigating documents

·         Selecting, copying and pasting, and reading the clipboard

·         Reporting text formatting and formatting changes

·         File management with File Explorer / Windows Explorer

·         Browsing the web filling in forms and problem solving navigating tricky sites.

·         Understanding focus and browse modes and how to switch between them

·         Using the review cursor to read, navigate and copy text

·         Using object navigation and changing review modes

·         Understanding how to use, create and trigger configuration profiles

·         Installing and setting up NVDA and creating a portable copy of it

·         Changing Braille settings, using add-ons, speech dictionaries and input gestures.

 

While that may seem a lot, your diligence and hard work are worth it.  Your users, employer, friends and the wider NVDA community will all thank you.  Plus, with that knowledge, you will be able to use the PC faster and with less frustration than ever before!

 

Need one last little reason to go for it?  Become an NVDA Certified Expert today, and be one of the first to experience NV Access' new branding.  The new logo is on the certificate and described.  It is not on the website or social media yet; we saved it just for you!  The exam and the list of certified users are now online at  https://certification.nvaccess.org/.
