Sorry, you mentioned turning off the touch pad so I'm assuming it is a laptop.

Hi James,
You do not have to be online to perform a JAWS repair.
 
From the JAWS help file:
 
1. Press WINDOWS Key+R.
2. Choose the Browse button.
3. Navigate to folder where the JAWS setup package is located.
4. Select the setup package file and press ENTER.
5. Press END and then press the SPACEBAR.
6. Type /Type repair and press ENTER.
 
As for getting online in general, is this a desktop or a laptop?  If it is a desktop using a wired connection, then usually Windows will automatically setup your internet connection if it can find drivers for your network adapter.  If it is a laptop using a wireless connection, even if Windows can find drivers for the network adapter, you will still have to setup your wireless connection.

Hi Carlos and list,
 
After hours of digging through settings with Narrator and a messed up installation of Jaws, I haven’t accomplished much.  Here’s what I do have:
 
I seem to have a clean install of Windows.
For right now, I don’t think that I got any Dell software with the reset.  I'm just having trouble going through unfamiliar menus with Narrator and broken Jaws.
 
I was able to turn off Windows driver updates as well as software updates, all in windows.  I got the touch pad turned off and installed Jaws from a thumb drive.  But, Jaws doesn’t work right.
 
Jaws says that there was a problem with installing the mirror drivers and that I need to first try a reboot.  I did and Jaws still isn’t working right.  Jaws said to try doing a Jaws repair.
 
I do not know how to do a Jaws repair and, don’t you have to be on line to do that?  That was another thing that I could not find while digging through menus with Narrator or Jaws.
 
So, can any one tell me first, how to get on line with Win10?  Next, Can any one give me step by step directions on doing a Jaws repair?
 
So many thanks,
 
James

My Dell laptop just rebooted.  I think it may have rebooted two or three times.  It took over one hour to finish.
 
This time, it appears to have done exactly what I was hoping it would do.
 
All of the Windows sounds are default now and I don’t see any signs of my old files or settings or Apps.
 
Windows is working with Narrator just fine.  I landed at the windows set up screen where I was able to set up my log in password, country, local account name, password, and password hint. Next, I landed on the desktop.
 
Oh, I also did get the option to set up my internet but I skipped that step so I can go in to Windows later this afternoon and tell Windows and Dell to not give me any automatic driver downloads.  Its kind of neat.  My Router and around a dozen others were in a list just waiting for me to hit enter on the right one.
 
By the way, I was able to go to a thumb drive where I have Jaws.  I will do that next...after I grab some sleep.
 
The main point for me is just that it does appear as though a blind individual can do a reset, and then set up a new commercially available system with out sighted assistance.  That’s what I really wanted.
 
I am not certain yet as to whether I have all of the Dell software on the system or if I only have Windows stuff but it won’t matter too much to me either way.  I’m guessing that it is my original system the way that it came to me from Dell. 
 
I need to get some sleep so I will report back to the list later this afternoon in case some one is following this thread but here is a very very, important thing that I need to say right now.
 
When I clicked on reset, I got two options.  One said some thing like delete all files.  That is the selection that I chose.  It does appear that I now have a fresh Win10 install.
 
The other option that I was given after clicking on the reset button was to clean all drives.  This setting appears to wipe all drives.  I am assuming that the C (primary) drive and the D (restoration) drive get wiped.  Someone wanting Windows to come back up with Narrator would certainly want to avoid cleaning all drives unless they have a way to install another copy of Windows.  So, be careful which button you select or you will get stuck with a completely cleaned nonfunctioning drive.
 
Carlos, I sure am glad that I didn’t fire you!

Resetting is basically like reinstalling Windows.  Only software which may have been included by the manufacturer is restored.  All settings and other applications will be removed.

Hi Group,
 
 
 
I would have to write a book to explain all that I have gone through with my 6 day old Dell Inspiron11 laptop loaded from Dell with Windows10.  So I will try for the condensed version.
 
 
 
I fell in love with the laptop at first touch but, the sound was terrible.  Loads of distortion and the volume continually changed itself all by it self.  So, I rolled the RealTek drivers back to the prior version and the laptop sounded 100% perfect. 
 
 
 
Then, Microsoft updates gave me the newest and latest driver update for the onboard RealTek sound which just happened to be the bad drivers that I had just removed.  Suddenly, the sound was all messed up again.
 
 
 
My next attempt to roll back the drivers failed several times. Then, I got MS to do a remote in on the laptop and they install the same older drivers that made the machine sound perfect again.
 
 
 
Carlos told me how to prevent MS from changing my drivers with future Windows updates.  And, I did that.  So, I spent around 12 hours getting every thing installed on the laptop. 
 
 
 
The next day, the sound was back to the same as the day before.  It turns out that Dell also sends out driver updates and this time, it was Dell who messed me over. <groan?
 
 
 
I ain’t all that great with even using some features on my computer much less being able to repair it when something goes wrong.  And, I have news for both Dell and Microsoft, I can break my computer just fine with out any assistance from them.
 
 
 
Since I had reasons to suspect corrupted files for other reasons that I won’t go in to right now, , I got Dell tech support to remote in and do a Windows reset.  I was informed by Dell tech support that the laptop would be in the exact same state as it was the moment that I took it out of the box for the first time.  I figured I could keep it off line long enough to set up Jaws, and change the settings to stop Dell and MS from helping themselves with making my computer work better.
 
 
 
But, after the reset that Dell claimed to do, I still had some files that I put on the computer.  I still had my log on password, the Jaws authorization key, along with other things including the stupid RealTek drivers that sound so bad.  I wonder if the Dell tech support person did an actual reset or maybe just a refresh.
 
 
 
So I went in to Windows and looked at the reset setting because I was considering doing my own reset. And it said that the reset action was the recommended  action for user’s to preform before recycling their computers.  This causes me to wonder exactly what the Win10 reset function really does.
 
 
 
Now here’s my point.  I want one of two things.  Either the computer to go back to the exact same state it was in when I booted it up the first time.  Or, I would be completely happy with a clean Win10 install with none of the original Dell software.
 
 
 
So, if I am not the first person that Carlos has to kick off of his new list for boring you all to death,  is there any one who can really really, tell me exactly what I will get if I reset
Win10 myself?
 
 
 
So sorry for what still turned out to be a book,
 
 
 
James

Although I am still subscribed, I got very frustrated with the
moderation
and sometimes the lack thereof. I very much dislike the fact that there
are
more and more persons on Blindtech who are cross posting all over the
place.
It is not unusual to see the same message no fewer than five or six times
on
various lists. And I hope that those cross posts do not show up here.
This
prompts a question. Is there a utility which will somehow delete cross
posted messages? Setting up filters to do this would be a huge
undertaking.

Re: Exactly what really does happen if I reset Windows10 on a new Dell laptop?

James Bentley
 

Hi Carlos and list,
 
After hours of digging through settings with Narrator and a messed up installation of Jaws, I haven’t accomplished much.  Here’s what I do have:
 
I seem to have a clean install of Windows.
For right now, I don’t think that I got any Dell software with the reset.  I'm just having trouble going through unfamiliar menus with Narrator and broken Jaws.
 
I was able to turn off Windows driver updates as well as software updates, all in windows.  I got the touch pad turned off and installed Jaws from a thumb drive.  But, Jaws doesn’t work right.
 
Jaws says that there was a problem with installing the mirror drivers and that I need to first try a reboot.  I did and Jaws still isn’t working right.  Jaws said to try doing a Jaws repair.
 
I do not know how to do a Jaws repair and, don’t you have to be on line to do that?  That was another thing that I could not find while digging through menus with Narrator or Jaws.
 
So, can any one tell me first, how to get on line with Win10?  Next, Can any one give me step by step directions on doing a Jaws repair?
 
So many thanks,
 
James

My Dell laptop just rebooted.  I think it may have rebooted two or three times.  It took over one hour to finish.
 
This time, it appears to have done exactly what I was hoping it would do.
 
All of the Windows sounds are default now and I don’t see any signs of my old files or settings or Apps.
 
Windows is working with Narrator just fine.  I landed at the windows set up screen where I was able to set up my log in password, country, local account name, password, and password hint. Next, I landed on the desktop.
 
Oh, I also did get the option to set up my internet but I skipped that step so I can go in to Windows later this afternoon and tell Windows and Dell to not give me any automatic driver downloads.  Its kind of neat.  My Router and around a dozen others were in a list just waiting for me to hit enter on the right one.
 
By the way, I was able to go to a thumb drive where I have Jaws.  I will do that next...after I grab some sleep.
 
The main point for me is just that it does appear as though a blind individual can do a reset, and then set up a new commercially available system with out sighted assistance.  That’s what I really wanted.
 
I am not certain yet as to whether I have all of the Dell software on the system or if I only have Windows stuff but it won’t matter too much to me either way.  I’m guessing that it is my original system the way that it came to me from Dell. 
 
I need to get some sleep so I will report back to the list later this afternoon in case some one is following this thread but here is a very very, important thing that I need to say right now.
 
When I clicked on reset, I got two options.  One said some thing like delete all files.  That is the selection that I chose.  It does appear that I now have a fresh Win10 install.
 
The other option that I was given after clicking on the reset button was to clean all drives.  This setting appears to wipe all drives.  I am assuming that the C (primary) drive and the D (restoration) drive get wiped.  Someone wanting Windows to come back up with Narrator would certainly want to avoid cleaning all drives unless they have a way to install another copy of Windows.  So, be careful which button you select or you will get stuck with a completely cleaned nonfunctioning drive.
 
Carlos, I sure am glad that I didn’t fire you!
 
James

Resetting is basically like reinstalling Windows.  Only software which may have been included by the manufacturer is restored.  All settings and other applications will be removed.

Hi Group,
 
 
 
I would have to write a book to explain all that I have gone through with my 6 day old Dell Inspiron11 laptop loaded from Dell with Windows10.  So I will try for the condensed version.
 
 
 
I fell in love with the laptop at first touch but, the sound was terrible.  Loads of distortion and the volume continually changed itself all by it self.  So, I rolled the RealTek drivers back to the prior version and the laptop sounded 100% perfect. 
 
 
 
Then, Microsoft updates gave me the newest and latest driver update for the onboard RealTek sound which just happened to be the bad drivers that I had just removed.  Suddenly, the sound was all messed up again.
 
 
 
My next attempt to roll back the drivers failed several times. Then, I got MS to do a remote in on the laptop and they install the same older drivers that made the machine sound perfect again.
 
 
 
Carlos told me how to prevent MS from changing my drivers with future Windows updates.  And, I did that.  So, I spent around 12 hours getting every thing installed on the laptop. 
 
 
 
The next day, the sound was back to the same as the day before.  It turns out that Dell also sends out driver updates and this time, it was Dell who messed me over. <groan?
 
 
 
I ain’t all that great with even using some features on my computer much less being able to repair it when something goes wrong.  And, I have news for both Dell and Microsoft, I can break my computer just fine with out any assistance from them.
 
 
 
Since I had reasons to suspect corrupted files for other reasons that I won’t go in to right now, , I got Dell tech support to remote in and do a Windows reset.  I was informed by Dell tech support that the laptop would be in the exact same state as it was the moment that I took it out of the box for the first time.  I figured I could keep it off line long enough to set up Jaws, and change the settings to stop Dell and MS from helping themselves with making my computer work better.
 
 
 
But, after the reset that Dell claimed to do, I still had some files that I put on the computer.  I still had my log on password, the Jaws authorization key, along with other things including the stupid RealTek drivers that sound so bad.  I wonder if the Dell tech support person did an actual reset or maybe just a refresh.
 
 
 
So I went in to Windows and looked at the reset setting because I was considering doing my own reset. And it said that the reset action was the recommended  action for user’s to preform before recycling their computers.  This causes me to wonder exactly what the Win10 reset function really does.
 
 
 
Now here’s my point.  I want one of two things.  Either the computer to go back to the exact same state it was in when I booted it up the first time.  Or, I would be completely happy with a clean Win10 install with none of the original Dell software.
 
 
 
So, if I am not the first person that Carlos has to kick off of his new list for boring you all to death,  is there any one who can really really, tell me exactly what I will get if I reset
Win10 myself?
 
 
 
So sorry for what still turned out to be a book,
 
 
 
James

Howdy,

I was hoping to gather up some ideas/thoughts on PC applications, used
for different levels of encryption, more specifically, applications
that offer the same types of features as we had in packages like TrueCrypt.

Although you can still locate the download for the latest working
version of tc, I was wondering if anyone was familiar with anything to replace it.
I see that there are two current packages, both closely based on the
TrueCrypt source, VeraCrypt and CipherShed, so curious if anyone knew
of anything outside these.

For anyone else who may also be interested in such a beastie, this is
what I've noticed so far. First, if you want an interface that seems
to be pretty much a copy of the TrueCrypt interface, which by the way,
was really accessible, VeraCrypt may be exactly what you want. It also
seems to have been updated in some of its methods of encryption, which
is always nice. I can't speak to the accessibility of using a feature
like full disk encryption, or how we may go about booting into the
encrypted installation, and how well that works with a screenreader,
but it's all supported here.

Unfortunately, although the features in CipherShed also look pretty
nice, it doesn't appear that the package has gotten outside its
testing phase yet, so, I wasn't able to find a stable download. Either
way, these types of tools are really neat and useful, so wanted to see
if anyone could throw some more ideas my way.

Thanks and blessings.

literally nothing the admins can do. If there are more than one lists at

Howdy,

I was hoping to gather up some ideas/thoughts on PC applications, used
for different levels of encryption, more specifically, applications
that offer the same types of features as we had in packages like TrueCrypt.

Although you can still locate the download for the latest working
version of tc, I was wondering if anyone was familiar with anything to replace it.
I see that there are two current packages, both closely based on the
TrueCrypt source, VeraCrypt and CipherShed, so curious if anyone knew
of anything outside these.

For anyone else who may also be interested in such a beastie, this is
what I've noticed so far. First, if you want an interface that seems
to be pretty much a copy of the TrueCrypt interface, which by the way,
was really accessible, VeraCrypt may be exactly what you want. It also
seems to have been updated in some of its methods of encryption, which
is always nice. I can't speak to the accessibility of using a feature
like full disk encryption, or how we may go about booting into the
encrypted installation, and how well that works with a screenreader,
but it's all supported here.

Unfortunately, although the features in CipherShed also look pretty
nice, it doesn't appear that the package has gotten outside its
testing phase yet, so, I wasn't able to find a stable download. Either
way, these types of tools are really neat and useful, so wanted to see
if anyone could throw some more ideas my way.

Thanks and blessings.

Re: What happened

 

You people made me have to stop being lazy and create filters. I've
had this email address for 15 years--man I feel old--and have never
had to create a filter until today. lol It was the second morning
where I woke up, checked my mail, and was greeted with over 200
emails. I'm soooooo glad I have "group by conversation" on for my
iPhone and gmail.... One email had over 66 messages in it.
On a good note I now know how to create filters in gMail using basic
html. I hope I don't forget to check the foldersI sorted them too. hah

Hi Joseph,
My nightmare is to delete the exact same thing 6 damn times. And, when
the
person sends something in response, they send it to like 3 lists. So
that
makes it 8 more messages, than necessary.

Hi,
For me, the worst nightmare is when someone cross-posts the same message
to
multiple lists (I did ask people on the lists I moderate to not
cross-post,
or if they have to do that, either use BCC or ask the mods first).
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,

Here's the thing. If I send something to this list, and the BlindTech
list,
but I only put one list into the to field at the time, there's literally
literally nothing the admins can do. If there are more than one lists at
the
time, that's different.

Although I am still subscribed, I got very frustrated with the
moderation
and sometimes the lack thereof. I very much dislike the fact that there
are
more and more persons on Blindtech who are cross posting all over the
place.
It is not unusual to see the same message no fewer than five or six times
on
various lists. And I hope that those cross posts do not show up here.
This
prompts a question. Is there a utility which will somehow delete cross
posted messages? Setting up filters to do this would be a huge
undertaking.

I can certainly see Flor's point and it is really up to the individual to

Hi Flor,
All these things are a personal preference. It can be looked how you
mean. But those of us who are going through hundreds and hundreds of
messages, with an email client that supports no filters, this can be
tedious. I just deal with it, though, I know how life could be easier.
But then again, why do I subscribe, if I can't do it? So yeah, its really
a personal preference, in my opinion.
