Hi all, I am running windows ten and jaws 18. All of a sudden, I can’t create any new folders in documents. I hit the alt key, and don’t see a new folder button, as I used to do before today. What do I have to do to get that ability back? Jim

hello;
try;

Ctrl+F1
Hide/Unhide the taskbar
one press collapses another press expands,
you can also create new folder,
ctrl+shift+n=new folder,
alt+2=new folder,
also, perhaps the ribbon got collapsed.

hope this helps.

Hi Jim,
 
The easiest way is to press the keystroke, Control, Shift + N.  This is the shortcut keystroke for creating folders.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hello Don,
 
If Rick's suggestion is not possible, you should be able to accomplish your previous methodology in Win10 using the copy command instead of the move command.  You could accomplish this by creating a batch file that could be used repeatedly without ever going into the DOS command mode.  I have tried this method on my Win10 machine with complete success.
 
If you need help making this work, let me know and I will give it a go.

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.

Hi Ann,

I’ll try again when I get home this evening. I’m pretty sure I’ve
tried hitting Escape before though, to no avail. It’s this blank
screen, or at least blank in an audio sense, and I’ve seen no logic
for what makes the password field appear after a time. I’ll try
though, and if Martin could please post further instructions on that
option in Power Settings, I’d be very grateful!

Thank you all, and thank you Ann again for sharing your software.

Re: Accessible File Explorer Alternative

Rick Alfaro
 

Hi Joe. Xplorer can be installed to replace File Explorer but Not sure how well that mode of operation works. From what I've read, it is even supposed to run when launching with Windows e. Perhaps someone that has it configured that way can chime in and let us know how effective it is in that mode.

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.

I am using Xplorer2. A explorer replacement with two panes, so you

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.

Hi Steve,

Going back to Windows 7, I’ve often gotten property errors when
attempting to copy internal files to external or remote server
sources. I’m not sure I would have even minded these errors, except
it takes a while for the errors to pop up. After I tell the
application to ignore the property issues and apply the rule to all
related files, the transfer process tends to speed up, but when
uploading files to a server, the process is still laborious.
Granted, that is not so much a fault of File Explorer and more an
issue of bandwidth, but in general, I have found the application
far more clunky in Windows 10 than I even did in Windows 7. It
feels unnecessarily slow, so I really appreciate Ann providing me a
copy of FileDir. I can’t wait to give it a shot when I get home later.

forwarding some questions

Dean Martineau <topdot@...>
 

I have receivedthese questions:

I have always used windows as an operating system.  However, it appears I may soon have to work in a chrome environment.  Please could you tell me

  1. How accessible the chrome is for visually impaired persons?
  2. Would I need to buy or install a separate screenreader like Jaws?
  3. I would be required to use Office 365 Suite.  Is there any problems with both integration and accessibility?

 

My impression is that with ChromVox, the OS is accessible, but I can’t imagine it working with Office 365. I didn’t even think you could install that, or any third-party software.

 

Before I give inaccurate answers, can anybody shed any light on this?

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

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

out of the box with JFW and I would imagine with NVDA as well as Narrator
although I haven't used the program with those screen readers as of yet.

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

Hi Steve,

Going back to Windows 7, I’ve often gotten property errors when
attempting to copy internal files to external or remote server
sources. I’m not sure I would have even minded these errors, except
it takes a while for the errors to pop up. After I tell the
application to ignore the property issues and apply the rule to all
related files, the transfer process tends to speed up, but when
uploading files to a server, the process is still laborious.
Granted, that is not so much a fault of File Explorer and more an
issue of bandwidth, but in general, I have found the application far
more clunky in Windows 10 than I even did in Windows 7. It feels
unnecessarily slow, so I really appreciate Ann providing me a copy
of FileDir. I can’t wait to give it a shot when I get home later.

Aside from how it looks, I've heard people complain about File and
Windows Explorer since time immemorial and have always asked
myself, what's wrong with it. Now I have the opportunity to ask an
actual user who wants an alternative. OK, Joe, what is it about
File Explorer that you don't like? In what situations does it
respond slowly? I've been using Windows since version 1--yes,
since it was invented--and I think Explorer crashed two, maybe
three times, so what errors have you experienced while using  it?


OK, let's get down to it then. I found this article very
informative and might try some of these.

Hello

I’m looking for an alternative to File Explorer. Ideally it will
be a bit faster and less prone to errors, but mostly, I would
like for it to be accessible with JAWS. I don’t mind paying for
an alternative if someone can show the application is a good one.
Thank you in advance for any help!

Joe
