Hi Mike,

 

I’m sorry, but I get that same problem. It  is like Jaws not starting at the logon screen for me,  I tried to repair Jaws twice, but both times I got an error message stating that the repair could not be completed. I called Freedom Scientific, and I was told that the best thing I could do was to uninstall Jaws completely and then reinstall it. It still does not start at logon for me. I believe that Freedom Scientific (VFO) is too busy trying to repair and update the bigger problems, and the smaller stuff never gets addressed. It’s the typical result of becoming a corporate entity. The stock holders are the most important people to please.

Hi All,

 

Running Widows 10 Pro Version 1803 (OS Build 17134.81) with Jaws 16 thru J2018 latest.  Whenever I want to eject / remove an external harddrive I click on the system tray icon, choose the device, and press enter on it, but Jaws doesn't report the following:

 

Safe To Remove Hardware: The ’USB Mass Storage Device’ device can now be safely removed from the computer.

 

Can anyone tell me how to get Jaws to report the message above?  Or, what setting is supposed to be activated to make Jaws report the message above?  All help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks mooy moocho.

 

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Have you verified that the device is being removed?  It may well be that the message isn't being read.  But go into computer and see if the drive is still shown after the removal procedure.  At this point, we don't definitely know if there should be a message because we don't know if removal is occurring.

New NoScript add-on layout with Firefox 60

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

So, I’ve been playing with Firefox 60 and the latest JFW 2018put out this month. And I’m noticing that with the NoScript extension, now instead of the various options to disable or enable the different scripts and whatnot on pages, NoScript now presents you with a webpage with checkboxes instead of the context menu where you can arrow into the submenu with the different listed scripts.

I’m finding the new layout to be more tedious and not as easy to get around and was wondering if there was a way to get the old context submenu layout back or if this is how it is now? I poked around in the NoScript options and didn’t find anything that jumped out to get the old layout back.

Thanks,

Cristobal


Re: Safe To Remove Hardware Message

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Again All,
 
Okay, by doing the following Jaws will report the safe to remove message, although not consistently.  I knew I had a note about this somewhere because this also happens in Widows 7, and this is how I fixed it in Widows 10:
1. Windows key + I, to open Settings, Navigate to Personalization, and press enter.
2. Go to, Taskbar, press enter, tab to, Notification Area, Select which icons appear on the taskbar Link, and press enter.
3. Tab to, Windows host process (Rundll32) Button, press the spacebar to  check this option, and you should now hear Jaws report it's safe to remove.... after pressing enter on a drive from the Safely Remove Hardware icon.
 
Please let me know if the steps work for anyone else.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

You can't eject hard drives and I have many flash drives that can't be ejected either.  One of the terms used is incorrect.  but the procedure described is for using safely remove hardware so the procedure is correct.

Sorry about the delayed reply, but I have no idea of what you are talking about.  I use my Galaxy S7 for all that you mentioned and a whole lot more and as far as having to learn an entire new system I went from the iPhone 4s to a Galaxy S5 and really didn't notice a great deal of difference aside fro learning some new gestures. As I stated before I had 2 iPhones and will soon be getting my third Android.  Not saying that I will never go back to Apple, but they will have to do something more than spectacular to bring me back.  Again sorry about the late response.  Have A Great Day1 de

Hi Jim,
I know  I have seen you on android list, but I don’t remember what phone you have. I have a ZTE axon seven mini which is now a couple of years old. And it has not been upgraded and I don’t think it will be to the latest operating system. Fortunately, you really don’t have to use iTunes to put stuff on your phone these days, I suppose depending on when it is. But so much is downloadable now. I was kind of hoping that android would grow up and become a usable platform for people who really want to do things like browse the web and you email. So far, those things have not worked well for me, although other people say they have good luck there. In any case, if you are a a braille user, that’s not where you want to be quite yet. And getting back to Mike’s question, there are plenty of phones that work well depending on what you want to do. But the particular one that he bought I have never heard of on that android list or anywhere else. So I would still say, send it back and get something more in the mainstream that doesn’t require you to mess with it in the beginning just to get it charged, and then you might find  out that it doesn’t even have talkback included from the get go. Some of them don’t. Stick with  known brands like Samsung, Motorola, Nokia, LG, or Google, and you will have better results.

Hello listers,

 

Well, I have purchased my first Android phone, and I can’t do a thing with it. The     phone came from Amazon, and it is supposedly a new brand out on the market, “BooGee”. The model    is the X20, and it runs on Amdroid 7.0. I really do not know what that means exactly, as I know nothing about the Android operating system, but I suppose it is like Orange Crush or CoCo Puffs or something. I am supposed to take the cover off of the back of the phone to remove a membrane from the battery terminals so the phone can be charged, but I can’t even find the battery cover or where to take the back off. So, right now, it is a paper weight. This company, BooGee, is in some other country, and their support can only be reached via email. I sent them one yesterday morning, but as of yet have not received a reply. The only encouraging thing, is that the technician’s name is Chris, but this could be like all of the other foreign based support groups where all of the technicians cannot speak English, but thee all are named Chip or Mandy. I pray that I make a break through on this case soon, or I think this phone is going back to Amazon.  If you have ever heard of BooGee phones, please let me know. Also if you know anything about removing the cover from the phone battery. Thanks.

Re: DirectvNow Troubletrouble

With the new beta, on my iPhone, once I get a show playing on DirectvNow, I can't stop it and Voiceover does work unless I get out of the app.  But as soon as I go back in, I'm still where the video was and there is no way to give out of it without totally shutting the phone down and restaring.


I am placed back into the video.  But this time, I can go to the guide.  But, I dare not play a show because I'm stuck again with the same dilemma.  Any thoughts?

Re: Is Sling accessible?/DirectvNow trouble

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

 

Jessica,

 

The network names are listed across in the top row of the Sling TV Guide. The programs available for each network are listed below that. Sling is hard to figure out at first, but becomes easier to use once you have the layout down. Sling TV support can help you to understand this layout better. The big problem that I had with Sling was the quality of the stream.

 

Michael

Hi:

     I started messing around with Sling TV, Youtube TV, and live TV on Hulu.  I am having trouble getting past the initial screen on Youtube TV app on Apple TV; I can click on "Already a Member?", but can't move around the screen after that; it just say "Back" and takes me to the first screen again pressing on it.  Sling TV does not appear to tell the channels in the guide section.  Hulu seems to work OK, but there was some overlapping of sound a couple times while watching it last night... Any suggestions? I'm also going to call and ask if AT&T would be willing to give me a discount in order to keep my business since I can't fully access the Direct TV Now app...

Jessica


May God go with you!

Sincerely,

Jessica

They’ve redesigned the whole website and app. It’s not just because of the DVR. It’s a whole new design… I didn’t have much luck getting around the website very easily in the past either.

Re: How to get cookies off SS

Gene
 

The cookie settings are probably the same or similar in my version of Internet Explorer than in the latest one, but since I don't use it and never updated it, I'll wait to see what others say.  If you haven't done so, I think the important change you should make is to make Internet Explorer not accept third party cookies.  those are almost always tracking or advertising cookies and are not placed on your machine by the actual site you are working with.  I don't consider cookies placed on your machine by actual sites you go to to be worth worrying about for the most part and there is nothing, as far as I can see, about Send Space's privacy policy that is materially different than a lot of sites on the Internet.  if you are worried about that site, you should be worried about most sites.  If you are worried about sites in general, getting some sort of cookie manager or setting Internet Explorer not to allow any cookies, then adding cookies using the exceptions feature would be the thing to do for sites where you want to allow fcookies. 
 
That's what I do.  I'm not particularly concerned about allowing first party cookies but I'd rather only have cookies I want on my machine.  I consider this to be more a matter of preference than a matter of more than a small amount of importance.  . 
 
Some sites won't give you access if their cookies are blocked.  Not third party cookies, there first party cookies.  If I can't use a site, I allow it.  If not having a cookie on a site I log into means I have to manually log in every time I go to the site, I allow it unless I have some reason to believe the site is abusing its use of cookies, such as something I've read or good information from elsewhere.  I don't check on sites in general.  I usually just allow the cookies using the exceptions list.  A lot of sites use cookies to recognize you and to keep you from having to log in every time you go to the site. 
 
I think this question should be discussed more so that people who are concerned will know what options they have and what options make sense to implement, given there level of worry and the effects the choices may have in terms of convenience.
 
I believe that first party cookies are among the least matters of concern as far as privacy is concerned.

Some not-so-fun with Windows10 sound drivers

Jeremy <icu8it2@...>
 

Hey, :)
Probably wont be useful to everyone using 10, but hopefully it's still worth mentioning and helpful to those who are who have the same types of issues with sound and drivers as I've been tinkering with. So basically this laptop came with the Realtek High-definition  software/drivers and I wished to replace them and use the standard Intel High-definition drivers instead. Not only are the standard Intel High-definition drivers slightly more responsive when plugging and unplugging headphones from the port, they allow you more control over what you wish the microphone part of the combo jack to do when a headset with a built-in Microphone is connected. As I wished to use the internal microphones that are built into the laptop and not the ones as part of any headset and since the Realtek drivers do not give you this option at all, they needed to go and not be reinstalled.

Several things I read said that you could tell Windows10 to not automatically update drivers as part of the Windows updates but this never worked for keeping them from being reinstalled on me rebooting the computer and reconnecting to my Wifi, the driver would just pop back down through Windows update again. There was also a tool that I found on Microsoft's pages that allow you to select updates and hide them, similar to how you could deselect updates to not be installed in 7, but even after I selected the Realtek driver, it would still install a part of the software and end up in a situation where it was telling me I always had an update that needed to be installed after a restart and I would lose functionality of the Intel High-definition driver. So far what I've found that works is to remove the Realtek driver from device manager and then uninstall the software as normal. When it tells you that you need to reboot the computer, select no and then navigate to the Realtek directory in C:\program files and right click it or press the applications key to bring up the menu. Head to properties and under the security tab you need to completely deny all permissions for the system user, but make sure you're denying them for Realtek. lol
Basically it keeps what ever is trying to reinstall the software from doing so, and the better driver will stay installed on restarting. Yay!
I'm really only posting this as I've spent quite a bit of time and about 20 or 30 restarts trying to figure this out and stumbled across this solution on reddit and it actually worked so wanted to share. It's a crappy hacky workaround and there might be something else that works too, but it's working great for me so far. As with most combo jacks that I've had on Windows laptops, my previous Lenovo included, the Microphone part of the jack sounds absolutely terrible so this has saved my bacon and I get to use the much nicer-sounding internals. woot!!!
Hope someone finds this helpful. :)
Take care.
