Thank you to everyone who answered my copying question.Most answers were the same and I will be giving them a try.  Once I get a good master copy, I'll make one to two backups and then I will only need this procedure to refresh the backups.


Thanks.

Subject: [TechTalk] repost Windows Explorer Failure Question

 

I haven't received a response, so thought I would repost the below. Thank you.

 

This morning my Windows Explorer stopped working on my Windows 7 Desktop.

 

I get the error message below:

 

explorer.exe
The remote procedure call failed and did not execute.
 Sometimes after several minutes it will begin working on my D drive, but never on the C drive.

 

I can access my document via the network on my laptop, so I know the computer itself is still working.

 

Any ideas for a fix?

 

Thanks.

Talking pre installation environment images CRC error

Dinga Patel <neo420@...>
 

Hi,

I've downloaded the Talking win pre installation images from Carlos's
website but when I try to run them, I get a CRC error. I've tried
downloading them from multiple machines etc and get the same result.
In the end, I managed to extract the iso image from the win 7 32bit file and
put that onto a USb.
The issue I am having with that is that NVDA starts up and plays the intro
music but then stops talking. I've tried the suggested fixe of pressing ctrl
+ insert + S and trying to change the default speech synthesiser but that
doesn't work. Pressing Ctrl + alt + N keeps playing the startup sound so
audio is working.
Any suggestions would be appreciated to get NVDA to work

Thanks

Re: Setting Default Browser

Lynn White
 

Hey Gene,


Uninstalling and reinstalling Fire Fox did the trick.  Thanks.

I doubt this has happened.  Was Firefox installed before the update?  If so, it may be that if you uninstalled it again and reinstalled it, that it might show up.  I suspect this is a registry problem.  If you can uninstall and reinstall Firefox without losing book marks and whatever else you may not want to lose, such as history, you may want to try that.  But I'm not sure if you lose anything or if everything such as settings, history, bookmarks, etc. are stored somewhere where the uninstallation doesn't remove them.

Believe it or not but Windows has taken Fire Fox out of the loop as far as browsers are concerned.  Their Exploder, Chrome and Edge.  I even went in under Options in fire Fox and went to make Fire fox the default browser and it took me to apps and browsers and I was back to the same old nonsense.


I've also noticed that when I try to open up a text file in Notepad, that option isn't available either.  But, this is supposed to be fixed in a few Windows update.  They have really screwed up windows in the latest update.

Take care.  Go Rams!

I am wanting to set Fire Fox as a default browser. However, when I go
in to set a default for my browser, Microsoft Edge and Exploder are my
choices and then you have some maize to go through if you look for an
app in the Windows store.


Is there a straightforward way to get this done. I even tried a setting
in Firefox to make it my default browser and still Windows sets up road
blocks. Thanks for any help.

Hi all,

Once in Kurzie, do a ctrl-o. That opens the open dialog. Find your file and press 'enter' on it. Should convert just fine. You may want to move your file into the general folder under k1000.

Re: Copying large amounts of stuff

Angelo Sonnesso
 

For my example I will assume that you files are on e:\mp3 and that you sending them to c:\mp3
From the command line
Xcopy e?\mp3\*.mp3 c:\mp3 /d /I /s
This should do it.
There are other ways, but this works pretty fast.

Subject: [TechTalk] Copying large amounts of stuff

Hi All,

On my main computer, I have a very large folder of mp3 (music) files. On several external drives, I have folders of the same type containing much of the same stuff. I'd like to copy what I need from the externals to my main drive to make a master containing everything. However, when I do this, I'm doing a lot of replacing; when folders and files already exist on the target drive. Question is: Is there a command set or software program that will copy just the fresh stuff and ignore the existing duplicate stuff? It sure would be a time saver if it could be done.


Any ideas? Thanks.

Yes, you have to ocr that document to get the text out of it. What sort of ocr programs do you have access to? It could be KNFB reader. Docustan. Or even the JAWS ocr feature. I'm not sure if you can do that with NVDA and Windows. Of course, if you have one of the older Windows blindness ocr apps like K1000, you could do it that way. It just depends on what you have access to.

If you are using NVDA on Windows 10, the feature is built in.  If you are using NVDA on earlier versions of Windows, there is an add-on: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/ocr.en.html

When NVDA reports that the document is empty, press NVDA+R to run OCR.
Once done is announced, either use the regular navigation and reading keys to read just as any other document (Windows 10), or if using the add-on, use the review cursor (see https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#ReviewingText for the keystrokes).

In both cases, press ESCAPE when done.

Hi all,

With the advances in technology these days, a scanned image should be
no problem, providing you have the right tools.

If you have a smart phone, life becomes a breeze if you can take a
photo accurately. OCR for IOS and Android are both good, andand you
have a choice of apps.

If you want OCR for your computer, you could go with Jaws' OCR
extension, though I do not have any experience using it. I do not know
how well it works.

Both Kurzweil and Open Book are still the classic choices for computer
users, assuming you have a scanner. The problem with these two options
is that they are expensive, $800 to $1,000. If you can get rehab to
pay, or if you intend to do lots and lots of scanning, these options
are workable. I personally prefer Kurzweil because that's all they do,
make and sell OCR software. Therefore, they do it extremely well.

Now, if you don't have a lot of money, but you get a .pdf file
frequently, then you may want to consider Docuscan Plus from Serotek.
It costs about a third of the other two software programs, and it works
very well, even reading text on colored paper as well as dealing
flawlessly with images that are .pdf. It works well with NVDA or Jaws
or whatever, and may be just what you want.

Adobe Reader is OK, but---. I won't say anything more about that.

Looks like them's your choices. Good luck.

Re: Copying large amounts of stuff

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Howard,


I don't  know what version of Windows you are using and what screen reader, but for many Windows versions and many versions of screen readers, when you copy a large group of files like that and when Windows detects that there are duplicates, Windows prompts you to replace, skip or copy and maintain or something like that. In Windows 8 and 10, there is a checkbox that says 'perform the same action for the next X number of files.'  If you check this checkbox, then Windows will skip (if you desire) all the duplicates and copy over only the new files.

Re: pst update

Outlook files created with MS Outlook 97-2002 versions are ANSI PST files. MS Outlook 2003 & above versions offer greater storage capacity for Outlook items and folders. As there is no automatic way of converting a Microsoft Outlook 97-2002 ANSI PST to UNICODE PST. The easiest way to convert an ANSI PST file is to create a new data file in the Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders file PST format that supports Unicode and then import items from the old data file to the new Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders file PST.
