Hi all,

Yes, Joe, you need to go into FileDir before it will work.

Hi Martin,

Please repost what exactly you earned off in power setting options. I see nothing like fastdood in this settings area. Thank you.

Hey guys,

I'm running Windows 10, and I'm experiencing this annoying issue at
the login screen where JAWS will announce Windows Sign In but then not

keystrokes before JAWS will present me with the OK button and prompt
me to reenter the password and gives me the password hint. I don't
know how to set it up so that JAWS will take me directly to the edit
field itself. Any ideas? I'm running the latest build on both Windows
10 and JAWS 2018.

My second question: When I go to log into an intranet website on IE, I
get the security alert to enter my login credentials the way I've
always experienced, except now instead of the security screen popping
up on the same window, I have to Alt Tab around until I get to the
security page. I have to enter multiple layers, and if I have a few
apps opened, the process can get a little cumbersome. I'm thinking
there has to be a setting I can tweak somewhere. Please tell me
someone else has experienced and fixed this?

Thank you kindly in advance,

Hi Joe,

I am addressing only the Windows 10 sign in screen. I also get this issue, but instead of pressing random keys, I press the Escape key and it takes me to the password field. I type in my password, tab down to the OK button and am signed in.

Another problem that I experience is that Jaws will not start at the sign in screen, even though it is set to do so. I have to use the Control + Windows + Enter keystroke to open narrator to enter my password. Upon doing so, Jaws will then start normally. VFO really does have some quality control issues.

Re: Looking for a utility

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

 

Hi Donald,

 

Why don’t you use this method:

 

  1. Deselect all files in the folder.
  2. Open the contest menu (Applications key or Shift + F10).
  3. Arrow down to “Sort by”, and press enter.
  4. You will see the attributes that you have showing for the files checked and at the top of the resulting list.
  5. Press the letter B until you find Bit rate, and check this box.
  6. Tab down until you find the OK button and press the space bar or enter.

This will show you the bit rate or BPS of each .MP3 file in the folder, and you can sort them by this.

 

Note: If you want to move the bit rate to another position in the metadata for the files, go back into the Sort by feature just as above, and highlight Bit rate. Tab once or twice to move up or move down to rearrange this item to the position that you want it in.

 

HTH,

Michael

Subject: [TechTalk] Looking for a utility

 

Sorry for the vague subject line, but I didn’t know what else to call it.

 

I locate and collect old recordings found on the internet. A few are even acoustical recordings made before 1926. Sometimes, believe it or not, these things are recorded at 320 K stereo. That’s fine if they are high fidelity to begin with; but acoustical recordings? No way. So I want to change the bit rate and sampling rate on these things to save hard drive space. For this purpose, I use Pazera free audio extractor which works very well except for one problem. It will not delete the original file even though I have selected that option.  Instead, it creates another file with the identical name except that it inserts *.001 just prior to the period before the extention. 

 

In the past, I would go into command mode (cmd) and use the old move command to move all files     containing *.001 using wild cards to a different directory, leaving only the originals in the original directory.

 

I can no longer do this on my desktop running Windows 10, Version 1709, regardless of which screen reader I use.  So I am writing to inquire whether there is a utility which works in Windows 10 which will allow me to move, delete, or rename files using wild cards.

 

I apologize for the lengthy explanation, but it frustrates me to pose a question or request only to get a response telling me that I didn’t provide sufficient information.

 

Thanks in advance for ideas.

Re: Accessible File Explorer Alternative

Joe Orozco
 

For the moment I’m experimenting with the FileDir application Ann was
kind enough to share with me. It looks great, but I didn’t realize I
needed to first go to that application to make it work with my various
folders and files. Will this also be true of Xplorer? I guess I was
thinking I could click on the Dropbox icon and have the new
application automatically kick in, completely bypassing File Explorer.
I want the process of interacting with files to be more efficient, not
add another step, but if this is the logic behind File Explorer
alternatives, I’ll quit my whining and get used to the bigger
advantages. Thank you all so much for patiently answering my
questions.

The program has more options for searching and the searchresults will

You can also place files in this scrabcontainer window. The files does

You can copye these files from the scab container.

You can find more information about this program at the link below.
The program is not free. There is also a lite version that is for

I am using it for maybe 10 years now and like it.

And the windows file explorer is also good, but this program has more

Granted, that is not so much a fault of File Explorer and more an

Re: Looking for a utility

Gene
 

If they are already compressed recordings, you will lose quality by doing this because you are reencoding a compressed file a second time, thus applying compression to it twice.  The loss of quality may or may not be noticeable.  Before doing this to a lot of files, I think it would be a good idea to try this on a few files to see if you hear any loss.

Acrobat Reader DC Strange Behavior Between Windows and Mac

I received a PDF which I was asked to sign on page 9. However, when opened with Acrobat DC on Mac OS, there were but seven pages. In Windows, the pagination was correct. Any clue as to why this might be, and how to fix it? I need the Apple Acrobat to match the Windows one.

Re: Accessible File Explorer Alternative

Property problems abound, especially with Dropbox, but that's not entirely Windows Explorer's fault. Hopefully the link I sent will give you even more choices. I'm thinking of trying some of them myself. Tell us about FileDir when you get it running.

Re: spoofer

Gene
 

Any moderator on any list who follows list traffic should see them.  I don't know what degree of technical knowledge is needed to find out what person is sending spoofing messages but it is outside of the knowledge generally of list moderators and owners.

Someone who owns an illegal file sharing group claims to have
discovered who the person is and that they've alerted the legal
authorities in the country the person resides in. He claims he was
sent several messages from different individuals all indicating that
it was this one person in Canada. I'm hesitant to believe this report

Not unless you tell us what e-mail program you are using.  You should always give information about the relevant program when you ask for help.  As I recall, you use Outlook.  But people aren't going to necessarily know, if they are newer members or remember, what programs this or that member uses.

On what? yahoo groups? Google groups? Groups.io? Something else?

You really need to ask complete questions or no one will know how to help you.

Re: Accessible File Explorer Alternative

Marten Post Uiterweer
 

Joe,

I am using Xplorer2. A explorer replacement with two panes, so you see
two folders on the screen.
Tabkey will switch panes.
With f5 you can copy or f6 move. You can copy/move from pane to pane.
The program has more options for searching and the searchresults will be
displayed in a ceperate explorer like window.
It wil l call this a scrab container.

You can also place files in this scrabcontainer window. The files does
not to be from the same folder.
You can copye these files from the scab container.

You can find more information about this program at the link below.
The program is not free. There is also a lite version that is for free
or you can try the pro version for a 14 or 30 days.

I am using it for maybe 10 years now and like it.

And the windows file explorer is also good, but this program has more
options and I can do my work more quickly.

I have made a script that will make it a bit nicer in xplorer2 so if you
will try the program, then I can send you these scripts.

Kind regards, marten
