Do you remember the name of the machine, or is there any way to obtain
it? If possible, perhaps, you can search for the same type and find
it.

Re: if someone is using audacity, I need your help.

Gene
 

Unless your sound card has a what you hear option, you should use virtual recorder for recording.  It is by far the easiest program I've seen for changing the source you want to use and it also is very easy to use the Windows version of what you hear for recording what you hear from your sound card.  If you are going to record what Winamp is playing, you will need some version of this feature.  I can give you a web page where you can find and download the portable version of Virtual Recorder.  One person had problems with the installed version.  The program interface was designed by the late Carlos and it is a very easy interface to access the program, which originally was a command line program as I recall.  He intentionally designed it to be very easy to use.  If you want to edit, you will have to use another program to edit with.  Again, you didn't say which format you want to use.  That will have an important bearing on the program you will use to edit.

Re: malware bites question

James Bentley
 

I am running the latest version of Malwarebytes Premium on 3 computers.  Around 2 weeks ago, malware turned up on the  computer that was powered up.  Malwarebytes quarantined the 2 bad files on the computer and gave me 3 options on how to handle the malware.
 
1.  Delete the malware.
2.  Keep the malware quarantined.
3.  Do nothing and ignore the files in the future.
 
I do not remember the precise steps that I took to just keep the files quarantined but it was either hitting the space bar or the enter key to check what I wanted.  Then, I had to answer OK or hit apply.  Sorry that I can’t give you precise steps.  I did not realize that it would be important for any one later.  I did run a  subsequent scan which detected no problems.
 
I very much dislike the way the new version of MB works now.  The older version was extremely easy to use with Jaws.  But, I have read in several places on the net that the malware definitions are not all it takes to be up to date.  The updated program has far better self protection and protection from ransomware.   Again, I wish I had taken notes because I would like to share the different web sites where I got the information.  I just did not consider the info important at the time.  Hopefully, a more experienced user will chime in on this subject.
 
Newer threats like improved versions of ransomware are out there just waiting for some one to click on the wrong link.So, I recommend that users exercise extreme care and always maintain a full system back up especially when running older antivirus or malware programs. 
 
Regards,
 
James B

When I use the word accessible, I usually mean accessible from the keyboard using standard keys and commands.  I say a program is useable if it can't be used in that way and that a program is partly accessible if a combination of keyboard commands and screen-reader functions like the JAWS cursor and the JAWS touch cursor need to be used, or their equivalents in other screen-readers. 
 
In the message you are referring to, I didn't use it in that way because it seemed better to use accessible because I said accessible in that way, meaning the controls are accessible, useable or reachable in that way..

Gene, you're a feisty bird. I LOVE FEISTY BIRDS! Accessible is a word that's loosely bandied about these days.To some folks it means that a program can be fully accessed simply by using the TAB key. Of course, nothing  could be further from correct. Accessible means that a piece of software can be used when any or all the tools available to one are employed,and after employing all those tools, no part of said software is not within reachability.

It depends which version of Malware Bytes you are using.  Someone on the JAWS Users list just installed the latest free version of Malware Bytes, but claims that he was not able to select and quarantine detected threats without sighted assistance.  I stand by my claim that Malware Bytes 1.75 is still the only truly JAWS accessible version because detected threats can be selected and quarantined without sighted help.

Re: if someone is using audacity, I need your help.

Most people would do much better with a good tutorial, at least until they learn a reasonable amount about the program.  After that, I don't have a strong opinion but even then, they would probably do better to read the Audacity for JAWS material.  I don't remember who wrote it.  It doesn't matter if you use JAWS.  The material is generally applicable.  Where JAWS keys are specified, if you know your screen-reader, you can use the corresponding or appropriate commands.  It's a dry work and I still think people would generally like tutorials better but for advanced functions, it may be easier, perhaps much easier, to use if you already know a reasonable amount about the program.

Re: if someone is using audacity, I need your help.

What format do you want these files to be in?  Do you want to edit or just record?  If what you want to do is simple, we might be able to tell you on the list.  I don't know what tutorials are available.  Many years ago, I did one which explains how to record and edit.  There have been one or two new features added to the program that make editing easier but I almost never use Audacity and haven't kept up with changes. 
 
If you want these files to be MP3 files, you are much better off using MP3 Direct Cut.

Re: OCR Scanner

Then how is a stand alone reading machine going to be any easier?  You have to press a key to scan.  You have to use commands to move around the text.  Openbook scans and then, if it is using the default, will read the page that is scanned.  That's what stand alone reading machines do as well.  I can't see any reason to spend three thousand dollars for a stand alone reading machine.

Thank you. 
 
When I use the word accessible, I usually mean accessible from the keyboard using standard keys and commands.  I say a program is useable if it can't be used in that way and that a program is partly accessible if a combination of keyboard commands and screen-reader functions like the JAWS cursor and the JAWS touch cursor need to be used, or their equivalents in other screen-readers. 
 
In the message you are referring to, I didn't use it in that way because it seemed better to use accessible because I said accessible in that way, meaning the controls are accessible, useable or reachable in that way..

Gene, you're a feisty bird. I LOVE FEISTY BIRDS! Accessible is a word that's loosely bandied about these days.To some folks it means that a program can be fully accessed simply by using the TAB key. Of course, nothing  could be further from correct. Accessible means that a piece of software can be used when any or all the tools available to one are employed,and after employing all those tools, no part of said software is not within reachability.

You can use poor logic to stand by whatever claim you want.  One person's statement, unless you know that person is a truly knowledgeable ans skillful user means absolutely nothing in a case like this.  Does the person know how to use the JAWS cursor?  Does the person know how to use the touch cursor?  How did the person try to work with the material?  You are disregarding all of the unknown questions, and making a completely unsupported statement.  Whether it's right or wrong, and I believe aI recall comments that it is accessible in that respect, but whatever the case, your statement is unsupported and you are encouraging people to use a very old, perhaps four or five years old, version.  Whether detection of malware is as good when using the newest definitions with such an old version or not, removal of malware would be much more limited in terms of which malware is removed.

It depends which version of Malware Bytes you are using.  Someone on the JAWS Users list just installed the latest free version of Malware Bytes, but claims that he was not able to select and quarantine detected threats without sighted assistance.  I stand by my claim that Malware Bytes 1.75 is still the only truly JAWS accessible version because detected threats can be selected and quarantined without sighted help.

Hi, using Jaws are you able to select and deselect what it thinks is malware?

From Mack often times, they want you to verify a phone number or a backup email address, or do stup multi step verification. also, in order to make thunderbird work with google you have to allow google to accept less secure apps. they want you to turn that off.
