If you can wait, you might catch a sale and not have to pay the full price.
It is worth purchasing.

Indeed. After rereading the message, it isn't clear whether you just want the file/selection to play looped in GoldWave or make the file itself longer.

I hope this is at least some help. There are lots of settings after pressing F11.

Hi,
Using goldwave how do or can I have it to where a track will play over and over and over, or is the term loop?
Basically, I have this sound affect that lasts 4 seconds or so but I need it to last longer than that.

A question about the Kindle app on an IPhone SE.

Kendra Schafer <redwing731@...>
 

Hi all! 
I'm trying to add books to my wish list on the Kindle app. I'm using an IPhone SE that is fully updated along with Voice Over. I have saved a few books on to my wish list just fine but the fourth book, I can't add it to the wish list. The app isn't letting me add to my wish list. Does any one know if there is a limit to adding books to your wish list using the Kindle app?

Ring Video Pro accessibility

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

Was considering getting a Ring Video Pro and would like to know if the accompanying app/cloud service is at all accessible?

I’d likely get someone to install it, but I’m interested in the notifications aspect. Both the wife and I run our businesses out of the house, so we’re home throughout the day. We’ve already got a no solicitations, no surveys and no sermons sign in front to cut down on people coming to the door, but there are always those who would never consider that such a sign applies to them.

In any event, I’d like to know people’s experiences with this device and accompanying iOS app as well as desktop app for Windows.

Using the latest JFW 18.

Thanks,

Hi all,

Well, knock on wood, I ran the creator update this afn, and it seems to have done OK. I loaded Narrator, and it gave me a progress window, but quit talking at about 30%. I went and did something else, and was startled to hear the Window-Eyes start-up sound. Boom! There it was, I logged in and things seem OK, knock on wood.

I was so worried about this update. Thought I needed wsighted help, but I didn't I prayed and I or it is victorious! Yay! Is God concerned about our computers? I think so, but that's a discussion for another list. Suffice it to say, I'm a happy camper.

Re: malware bytes

Ah, okay. That's pretty much what I noticed when using it with NVDA also. As far as I've been able to tell, aside from the tabbing through pretty much all of the interface, it seems to be decently accessible. Even the scan results are readable, which is nice.
Take care.

Hi,

I use Mal Ware Bytes with JAWS 18, and it works really well. There is a lot of tabbing. You have to tab at least five times to get to the tabs, and you can just press the enter key on the scan tab to do a scan. It is easy to just do a scan with it. I do not use it for a full time running security solution. Take care.

I do agree that you'd better get used to some sweet sweet lovin of that tab key, but otherwise, the interface seems to work okay with NVDA, so far.

I've not used malware bytes in a while, so decided to grab it last night and try it out. While it seems that it locks down the ability to use object navigation in NVDA, it seems to be accessible enough to be worth purchasing. I was curious on it's pricing, but if that's the case, 30 bucks for using it on three computers, that's an excellent deal for sure.
Take care.

It is also worth noting that the total number of items found during a scan is not necessarily the total number of infections.  A specific malware infection may consist of several files and registry entries.  Often this is the total malware scanners will display.  In other words, 2000 items found does not usually mean 2000 infections.

You might look into a free program called CCleaner.  If your Mom runs this program before she shuts down the computer, it will wipe out all of the cookies, temp files and actually anything you want off of the computer.  There are a lot of options of items one might want to wipe off of the computer. 

 

I have been running this program now for the last 7 years.  The difference between the Free version of the program and “Pro” is that Pro will update the software automatically which I find to be nice.  You also have the option for real time junk monitoring and auto history erasing.  It will also make repairs to your registry if one wants, but will let you save an copy of whatever it corrects in the registry.

I have been using mp3 direct cut for years with no problem. The last time I used it a few weeks ago, it was working fine.
 
Today I tried to open a file and got an error message. The file seemed to load, but it wouldn't play. I tried with a few other files and the same thing happened.
 
Here is the error message:
 
mp3DirectCut
How to install/activate the MPEG decoder "mpglib.dll"
  - Download it from mp3DirectCut's homepage
  - Extract the file into the program's folder
  - Go to "Settings" => "Configure..." => "Devices"
  - Under "MPEG Decoder" select "mpglib.dll"
OK 
 
I went to the website and downloaded the .dll file, placed it in the program files (X86) changed the setting under configuration, devices and it still wouldn't work. I tried placing it in Program files instead, but it won't work there either.
 
Any other suggestions on how to fix the problem? I use this program quite a bit.
 
Thanks.

Can anyone give me any suggestions  how to fix this? I’m using Jaws eighteen and have windows 8.1.
