Hello Dan,

It's been quite a long time since we have talked.

The first thing you might try is to upgrade the Sound card driver through the device manager in Control Panel.

You can also use the Control + Windows + Enter keyboard shortcut to see if narrator will start, just to rule out that it isn't a Jaws related issue.

If all that checks out, run the trouble shooter from control panel and select the issue that you are experiencing and then starting the trouble shooter. Once complete, tab until you find the results of the process and check to see if Windows could resolve the issue.

If this does not solve your problem, you may consider purchasing a USB sound card, very inexpensive, and see if your speakers will play through that.

Next, you should check that the speakers are indeed still working by plugging them into another device to test them.

If still nothing, You could try a new sound carddd, but if you have to take the computer to a technician to have this done, than simply have them diagnose the system to find the true issue.

Good luck in getting your issue resolved,

Michael Boyd

Dear Groups:

I have an HP desktop PC with Windows 7, MS Office 2010 and JAWS 14. I use Boze computer shelf speakers. My sound was working fine up to 1pm today. I left for two hours and returned to my computer only to find I was getting no sound through my Boze speakers. This has never happened.

First, I checked to be sure that all speaker chords were securely connected, and they are. I then plugged my headphones into the headphone jack on the front of my computer and the headphones work.

Would any of you guys and gals have an idea what my problem is? I'm thinking my sound card went blip.

Re: really basic Echo question

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Dean,
 
This button layout / configuration is for the 2nd generation Echo, but might answer your question:
 
 Microphone On / Off button is at 9 o'clock.
 

Press this button to turn off the microphones. When you turn off the microphones, the light ring turns red. Press the button again to turn on the microphones.  Each of the On or Off  selections has its own sound.

 

Volume buttons are located at 12 & 6 o'clock, 12 is volume up & 6 is volume down.

 Press the buttons to turn the volume up and down. As you adjust the volume, the light ring displays the volume level in white. 

 

Action button, is at 3 o'clock, & has a little raised dot in the middle.

 The action button:

 list of 3 items

  Turns off a timer or alarm

  Wakes your device

• Enables Wi-Fi setup mode after you press and hold until the light ring turns orange

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

I believe that 12 point is the standard font size, and this is the size that I normally leave it set at.  When I am trying to proof read something as I read it I will set the size to 36 or 48 and when I am ready to do something official with it, I will change the size back to the 12 point size.  I know when I was taking college classes, most of my instructors liked things turn in, in 12 point if I remember correctly.  Just my thoughts..!

Re: Uber Self-Driving Car Hits and Kills Pedestrian

                    i look forward to self driving cars they will greatly solve alot of independent problems for the blind the sighted.  I do agree that most blind people will probably never be able to aford one.  If I could get enough money I would buy one.  No technology is fool profe there will be problems to be over come but thats what you do they will need to make sure that the cars have some way to handle of situations that you can't predict for.  like all kinds of weather and people going in theway of the car.  I do think that we will get there one day and it will be comonplace just as our cars are now.  Right now blind people have to live in areas that have transportation services but with driverless cars we would have greater choice whear we live just like the sighted.  If we wanted to live in the country or in a small town we could.  We would not be confind to the big cities. Even whear there are transportation service they can be very expensive for blind people who live on ssi or ssdi income.  I have been blind since birth and I would greatly enjoy the freedom and greater independence that a self driving car would give me.  Sighted people do take this for grantit.

hi,

I theorize that the widespread introduction of driverless technology
will not happen for at least another 5-8 years. There is a main reason
for this. To use the technology, according to many sources, the
widespread adoption of 5g networks is required. 5g isn't even a standard
which is finalized. 5g is required to handle all the heavy bandwidth
caused by many cars communicating and sharing information with each
other. Also, once 5g is finalized, deploying it will take some time, as
base stations not using LTE by that time will require significant upgrades.

Re: Note Pad Question Please.

If you open the menus and right arrow to format, you will hear the shortcut key announced.  You are currently moving to the edit menu with alt e, then right arrowing to the font menu.  This could be important because you may not be working with short cuts in menus efficiently in general.  Right or left arrow on the menu bar of any standard Windows program.  If you let each menu title read fully, you will hear the short cut announced after the title.  You never have to move to one menu in order to move to another.
In this case, the short cut for the format menu is alt o.

Hi Janet!

I am using Windows 10 but I believe you have the same menu structure under 7.  I open NotePad, go to the format dropdown and arrow down to font size press enter then tab to the item that says font size and from there you should be able to arrow down and increase the size of your font.  To get to the format menu I press Alt-E then arrow once to the right.  There maybe an easier way of getting to the font window but I don't know it<SMILE!>.  This larger font is reflected in both the onscreen font as well as the size of the font which your are typing.  Hope this helps..! Good Luck & Have A Good 1! de

Hi Everyone,
Is it possible to type in large print instead of just the standard text size in notepad? If so, would someone please tell me how.
Using Windows 7 latest JAWS.
Thank you.

Re: Note Pad Question Please.

Open the menus.  right arrow to format and start down arrowing.
Press enter on font.  It's a dialog.
Tab to size.  Up and down arrow to change the size.  I don't know what size constitutes large type as the term is used for the visually impaired.  Once on the size you want tab to the ok button and activate it.  Or you can try just pressing enter, which will very likely do the same thing where you are.
 
I don't think Notepad remembers any settings changes to fonts so check what the settings are the next time you use the program.

I think you can try Control and Plus sign, only I don't know if it will get as large as you can by going to Font like Jim says, which I know will work.
