by claiming that the touch relies on keysoft, and not the android version. that's simply not the case. there's the lie.

Re: Download for Windows7 ISOs

Jeremy <icu8it2@...>
 

Excellent, I'll grab them, just to keep them archived now that I have a new hd. I don't know all that much about the subject, but I understood that you could use the ultimate ISO to install that and the other versions below it, yes? As a matter of saving space, I was thinking of grabbing that one as well and using it to install professional, but I was unclear on how this install would work inside the PE. I know that you'd previously mentioned that you could use a utility to remove a file from the ISO to do this, but I couldn't recall the name of it.
Anyways, thanks bunches bruddah for the upload, your help is always super appreciated.
Take it easy. :)

Subject: [TechTalk] Download for Windows7 ISOs


Hey all,
I know that here not so long ago on list some downloads for the ISOs for Win7 were posted. I'd had most of the downloads that I wanted so didn't see a need to keep the links or messages. Early last week however, my external decided to crap out, resulting in the loss of the ISO and the backups for 7 that I used when I wanted to restore. I'm in the process of searching down the tool I used to register Windows on my OEM machine and also the drivers for it, but I can't seem to locate a decent place to grab 7pro.

If it'd be possible for someone to post up the link for it or where I might be able to look, I would be most grateful as I'd like to get my backup image recreated.
Thank you bunches and hope everyone is well.
Take care.

Is the manual on the machine?  What is the model number?  You should check to see if there is a restore to factory partition on the machine.

There was no cd with the machine.  It was a lease return when I bought it back in 2006 or so.  Not a priority, so I'll just put it on hold for now.

Hi Shirley,

The ROKU is a video streaming device that plugs into a HDMI port on your TV. It is very similar to the Amazon Fire TV or the Apple TV. It will come with some apps on it such as Netflix, Hulu, or HBO GO. You will also have the ability to download specific apps that you may want. It is required that you subscribe to these services, but getting 3 or 4 of these is cheaper than cable, and many people are “cutting the cord” these days. The ROKU and the other devices can be picked up at most any electronics store i.e. Best Buy, and of course the Amazon and the Apple devices are available straight from their respective websites. I use the Amazon Fire TV Stick, it is inexpensive and if you are a prime member, you can stream the Amazon Prime Video and the Prime Music through this device. Hth.

Jaws Link help

Kay Malmquist
 



Hi all, could somebody possibly send me a link to download Jaws 16? Currently, my serial number is only good for 16. I have just fired up my old computer after a year and would really appreciate rather than having to search the world over for it if somebody could just send me the link so I can install it. There's more involved here but for now that is enough. If someone could do this I would really appreciate it very much. Thanks for any help. This machine is running XP and unfortunately the version of Internet explorer is seriously out of date. So a lot of Internet searches come up with page cannot be displayed. Thanks again for any help.

Re: knfb reader for windows10

Gene
 

As I recall comments in the past, the Kurzweil app can be run on a computer with a scanner.  When it is said that a scanner may be the best bet, what is being said is that in general, you may get more accurate results with a scanner than with a camera whatever you are using the run the program.  In other words, a scanner may provide more accurate results on any device where you have a choice and on devices where you must use a camera, you may not get as good results because of that limitation. 
 
I don't know if a scanner yields more accurate OCR results but as I said, as far as I know the app can be run on a computer and not just on Apple or Android devices.

possible fix for thunderbird 52 and later with jaws 17 and earlier?

Norman
 

Good morning all.

Yesterday i had thunderbird accidentally update on me again. Rather than revert again i decided to see what fs had come up with in the way of a fix for the message list.

Here are my thoughts and observations.


First of all, i new that jaws 18 supposedly worked with thunderbird 52 so as much as i didn't want another jaws upgrade i decided that that would be the least painful place to start. The jaws upgrade went smoothly and i am now running jaws 18. However, here is where the problems started. I opened thunderbird expecting the message lists to read and for the one account they actually did. However, for the 3 other accounts in thunderbird, nothing i did made them work. restarting tb, jaws, etc. I do know about the threaded view in tb but for a none touch device this is a poor option, especially the way tb sorts the messages in oldest to newest order.

I finally lost patience and reverted tb again. I know, i should call fs and demonstrate the issue to them but for me calling fs is a trial in patience. Why on earth can't they get good techs who try to help instead of people who think they know it all and then when proven they don't won't let you speak with someone up the chain? Anyway, enough of that rant, back to troubleshooting.

My next thought was to go look at the mozilla bug i filed when the issue initially started and see if anything had come up there. One of the things mentioned there was the possibility of a technical support release from fs that would address the issue for jaws 16 and 17. Good i thought, now i'll finally get something.

I went searching for the fs announcement and found it here.

http://www.freedomscientific.com/Support/TechnicalSupport/Bulletin/1635

Again i didn't get a clear picture of what had changed but this did have a script file that would supposedly fix the issue. I downloaded and compiled the script into jaws but again, no luck, the message list still doesn't read.

Again, i should probably call fs but decided to post here first.

So now i have 2 questions for all you people out there.

1, Did the latest version of jaws 18 fix the issue with the message list for anyone out there?

2, for those running older versions of jaws, could you test out the script file and post the results?


From some hints dropped in various places i think this has to do with a chrome.css file so if we have any programers

Thanks.

here i invite thoughts as to how this could be fixed and pushed back to the tb code base.

Early last week however, my external decided to crap out, resulting in the loss of the ISO and the backups for 7 that I used when I wanted to restore. I'm in the process of searching down the tool I used to register Windows on my OEM machine and also the drivers for it, but I can't seem to locate a decent place to grab 7pro.

Thank you bunches and hope everyone is well.

Re: Lenovo laptops is it a good brand

Gene
 

In information as of 2014, which is the year of discussions I found in a Google search, it was stated by somewhere around three people in discussions I found, that Intel does run hotter.  It was also stated that Intel has a higher heat tolerance.  So the issue of heat may be or may pretty much be a red herring.  If, three years later, Intel chips still run hotter and still have a higher heat rating, hotter operation may be irrelevant, or pretty much so.  I don't know if the heat issue is irrelevant, as I speculate and I'll leave that to others to discuss.  But I'm not going to assume, based on what I've seen, that heat is an issue.  Indeed, as was discussed by one or two participants in one discussion, if you want to overclock a chip, Intel may be the preference because of its greater heat tolerance.  for other uses, the heat issue may not matter.
 
A lot can change in the computer arena so we'll see what people who know a lot more than I do technically have to say.

The Lenovo G505S notebook. It houses a The fan on the thing blows a good solid stream of warm, not hot, air out of the side of the computer. AMD processors do run considerably cooler than Intel processors do. I also have a Lenovo Idea Center H700 desktop which has an Intel core I7 Quad core processor, 8 GB RAM and also Windows 10 Creators. I have it in a computer desk that has a tower compartment. I left the back off of the compartment and some times have to open the door on this to keep the computer cool. Intel uses 4 cores even for their fastest processors, and AMD  uses up to 12 for some of their top processors. The A series if AMD’s old technology, they now are selling their FX series to most computer manufacturers.

It sounds to me as though you are generalizing from very little experience or evidence.  you have given one example of an AMD computer that runs cool.  Unless you have compared ten or twenty different brands and models with different chips, that is no basis to even begin to make a comparison.  I have no idea if AMD or Intel processors are cooler.  I don't know anything about speed and reliability.  I'm going into this in part to argue with your method of drawing conclusions and in part because I don't want others to draw conclusions from what you wrote. 

Also, different chips by the same company may run differently. 

 

I want to make clear that I'm not saying you are right or wrong.  I'm saying that your methodology for drawing conclusions, comparing two or three computers, and two or threee of different brands, if that is what you are doing, ages, and models, is meaningless.

this laptop uses lots of generic hardware. windows automatically recognized all AMD drivers so had no issues at all. if I and when I buy another computer it will for sure be one with AMD hardware in it. When I get my son a new laptop I'm getting him one with AMD stuff inside but AMD a12 and better radeon graphics for the games he likes. Even with a traditional spinning hard drive when I touch the side of this computer even when the CPU is maxed out you can't even feel that its running. It runs as or nearly as cool as a cell phone or as cool as my android tablet. But the 9 year old laptop my sighted son is using now that thing gets hot. Its using intel chips. I had an early 2007 late 2006 AMD laptop before I sold it and it ran a bit warm, but not as warm as the old hp elitebook 6930p intel dual core 2.5ghz my son is using. I upgraded that laptop with an ssd and windows10. Did as much as I could for him. But he really needs a new machine and he's getting one in a few months for christmas. my son is 10 years old and in fifth grade.

I believe refresh the PC removes all drivers supplied by the manufacturer.  I suspect that, if proprietary utilities are used to adjust certain things regarding computer operation, you may lose those and I'm not sure if the Windows ones wil work.  I wouldn't use refresh the pc until I had answers to these questions. 

 

It might have been easier, depending on circumstances, to remove bloatware than to do something like what you did.  You may not have had problems but if my understanding is correct, I wouldn't do it unless I knew how it would affect the specific computer.  I suppose if you didn’t like what it did, you could use the restore to factory state if you couldn't conveniently correct the problems but that might be a lot of time and inconvenience as well, restoring to factory state, upgrading Windows again, and having the malware back again and removing it in another way.

 

I don't know what you knew in advance but if I'm right about what this procedure does, in general, people shouldn't do things like this unless they really know just what such procedures do and what the results might be.  As I say, I don't know what you already knew.

I bought a branded hp laptop. It came with some bloatware on it. I just updated windows10 to the creators edition then used the refresh pc feature to wipe out all the bloatware. It also installed a fresh windows10. then used the disk partitioner to erase the factory recovery partition.

That's why I never like to buy branded pcs because of their many bloatwares.  So I get myself a lenovo, for example, and reformat the pc so I can have a windows installation tailored to my needs.  Apart from accessibility issues, these bloatwares take up space and slow down your what might have been a smooth, fast pc.  Most of these bloatwares are gimmicks anyways.  Cheers!

Hi Pamela,

 

As I remember, it was during the last half of the year when Lenovo took the steps to not include this malware on their computers. Had it happened by August? I sort of doubt it, but again, every computer they produced did not receive it. I am sure that you have installed the major /Windows updates since that time, and I make it a practice to remove all bloatware and most of the Lemovo utilities from my computers when I get them. If you have done this, you likely would not still have it on your machine.

I remember when that thing about Lenovo computers, and I believe one or two other brands, having spyware or malware on their computers. Lenovo sent out messages to their registered owners addressing the issue, and they gave a support number which could be called to have your computer checked out for the suspected bad boy. I had mine checked and both were found to be clean. They had put a name to this malware, but I do not now remember what it was. Lenovo stated at that time, that some of the software that they were pre-installing onto their computers may have been infected, and they stopped including that particular product . If you purchased a computer between a particular date range, again something that I did not commit to memory, then there was a chance that your computer may have been infected. Fortunately, neither of mine were not. There is no reason to worry about purchasing a Lenovo computer today.

I seem to remember reading on this list a few months back that, Lenovo Had some kind of spyware on their laptops. But, pc magazine said they are coming out as the top brand of 2017 followed by Asus, dell hp and lastly apple. I wanted to see if anyone can speak of their experiences with Lenovo laptop, do you like it or do you wish you had a different brand?

Thanks Heather

Re: knfb reader for windows10

I doubt that there is any restriction.  For years, Kurzweil hasn't had a restriction of cameras in its computer reading programs.  Open Book does but that's OpenBooks problem and disadvantage. 
 
As for the app, not the application, I consider it even less likely that it would be restricted, considering that it needs to run on a variety of phones with a variety of built-in cameras.  As far as whhich cameras might produce the best results with a phone or computer, that's something Kurzweil might be able to tell you. 
 
It may not matter, as long as whatever technical requirements for good image capture are met by the camera.

You may have to check with the NFB or the other party involved, is it Kurzweil?, to find out which cameras would be compatible with the app. I know that Freedom Scientific produces the Pearl to only work with Openbook. A scanner may be your best bet.
