Often other products will install the necessary codec.  It could be something you installed which included it or something installed by the manufacturer, but as far as I know Media Player does not support flac files by default.

Here's an intersting thing you might want to try.  I can't play flac files by just pressing enter on them in the files list.  But for some reason, if I open the context menu, type h to open the play with dialog and find Windows media Player in the list and press enter, the file plays.  I had never looked into this but that's how I play the one or two flac files I have and I didn't add anything to Media Player, as I recall.  It may be that doing so would remove the need to do what I do, but I haven't bothered for the one or two files I have.

I suspect the answer is that even though I didn't install anything, the two computers where I can do this had other things installed before I purchased the machine by the refurbisher in one case and the manufacturer in the other.  On a machine where extra audio or related programs or utilities weren't installed, I can't play the file.  So at some point, someone other than me must have installed something that allows media Player to play the files, though I don't think it was a codec installed into Windows media Player.
 
It may be that the computer being used will play these files using the procedure I described or it may not, it appears to me, depending on what the manufacturer or refurbisher did.

Re: talking wrist watches

Mike Thomas
 

Here's what I found is almost the size of the band.  Are you familiar with those spice container bottles which you get at discount stores?  They're about 4 inches tall and many have tops that either turn or flip open.  I found the band stretches just slightly when placing one of those inside of it.  As for the band, I broke one by turning the watch inside out in the band.  I couldn't find a band to fit it at the discount stores.  It seems to be special, so I don't know if its resizeable or not, but I sort of think your wrist must be larger than one of those spice bottles.  The watch I was talking about with the second hand having to stop a second from the number 7, is the atomic watch from blind mice mart.  I wouldn't get that one, as it requires sighted help for setup.  Blind mice mart also sells that 4 alarm deluxe watch that future aids carries, but the shipping makes it more costly than Future aids.  Oh, one other thing about this atomic watch...  It gives you talking instructions for how to set the time and date and everything.  Pretty nice if you need to manually adjust it because it couldn't see the radio signal.  I worried about it not seeing the signal, and did the putting it in the west facing window at night for a while.  Then I forgot, and found it set itself even if I was wearing it at night.  It will keep time to the second for a week or so anyway.  Three pushes on the talk button will tell you if your watch is synced to the radio signal.  You can also turn the watch off at anytime you want to stop it by pulling out the time set stem for the conventional watch hands, it saves the battery.

Looking to purchase another talking watch...the last one I got was from the braille superstore or something like that, worked great, but took me 8 months to find a store to alter the size of the band and now one of the band pins has come out and cannot find a replacement.
 
Can't beat the low prices of the store, but I guess you get what you pay for (the bands are very delicate).
 
Looking to purchse a talking watch for under $35.00 with either a braclet style band or a leather wrist band.

Avast may not be completely accessible, but many screen reader users run it so it should at least be usable.

OK, Carlos. I did go to the Avast website and it will work with Vista. It said nothing about screen reader compatibility and it suggested Chrome as the browser but hopefully it would work with Firefox.
 
I'm not paranoid about computer using but, when you have had to re-build computers because nothing would repair the damage done by the FBI Virus, it does make me stop and think. I will work on this, however, and let you know what happens.

Why not try Avast?
They have a free version and it still supports Vista.  Also, keep in mind that while it is good to be cautious, there is such a thing as being too paranoid.  There is no reason why downloading from known/secure sites such as BARD and Bookshare should generally be dangerous.

I'm going to propose my problem again and hopefully someone will have an answer for me.
 
As many of you know, I am still stuck with Windows Vista Home but have at least upgraded to Firefox and NVDA rather than using IE8 and JAWS11. As support ended for Vista on April 11, I can no longer use MSSE for my virus protection. People have steered me towards sophos home and I have checked on the website and it looks like you have to have Windows7, at least.
 
Is there nothing out there for me? Am I going to have to take the chance and run my computer unprotected? I've had a couple of issues, when protected, so the thought of not having something that will work is really quite scary. I don't think it would be worth it to call the Microsoft support number because they're just going to tell me to upgrade. I can't, right now.
 
There are certain things I would like to continue doing, such as downloading from BARD and Bookshare but not even sure I should do that.
 
It is my understanding that I can use Norton from Comcast, my ISP. I know that it not all that accessible and I know that it is a memory hog and some have told me not to use it at all. Wouldn't it be better than nothing if it will still work on Vista?
 
I'm grasping at straws fold, and, even though Microsoft gave all sorts of warning about the end of support, it came up entirely too fast for me. Money is the biggest issue here as you know.
 
Thanks for reading.

Here's an intersting thing you might want to try.  I can't play flac files by just pressing enter on them in the files list.  But for some reason, if I open the context menu, type h to open the play with dialog and find Windows media Player in the list and press enter, the file plays.  I had never looked into this but that's how I play the one or two flac files I have and I didn't add anything to Media Player, as I recall.  It may be that doing so would remove the need to do what I do, but I haven't bothered for the one or two files I have.
