Dropbox notifications

George McCoy <slr1bpz@...>
 

I am trying to help a friend of mine who is not getting all of his dropbox notifications.  Files are, in fact, downloaded to his pc, but windows 10 does not display notifications, nor do they appear in the action center.


Has anyone else experienced this?  If so, how did you resolve it?


Thank you,

George

I have a computer purchased from CFTB which I have upgraded to windows 10, having NVDA on it, and a lot of downloaded music.  All of the components which I received with the computer all work perfectly.

Brian,

My computer, which I purchased from CFTB, also contained an 80 GB hard drive with 3 GB of RAM. Windows 7 was installed on that machine and there was more than enough space to accommodate the OS along with NVDA, OpenOffice, my browser, email client and documents.

Dear Gerald & List:

I am glad your three-year old Dell desktop works well with only 2 GB of RAM and an 80 MB hard drive.

What version of Windows do you run? XP? That is about all that will fit onto your hard drive. Wonder what the CPU chip is> Download the belark advisor from: HTTPS://WWW.BELARK.COM it will tell you this and all sorts of neat information about your system. It is free for personal use.

 

Depending upon your BIOS & version of windows, you may be able to upgrade your RAM by merely unplugging the existing Ram chips and plugging in the replacements. Your hard disk controller may be on the motherboard, or a card plugged into the motherboard. If it is a card, you can upgrade the controller with a newer card and upgrade your disk drive to a modern size or at least one larger than 80 MB.

 

It is great JAWS runs on your PC with so little RAM. However, others have found their mileage varies, with systems with failing components or power supplies from CFTB. If you are handy with tools, you can replace an ailing power supply yourself. The power cables on it all have sockets, large one for the CPU smaller ones for hard or floppy disk drives or CD/DVD reader/burner.

 

As PC use switch mode power supplies, if the supply dies, it usually takes out the entire system with it! Supply fries all the chips on the motherboard & option cards with raw 120-voolt power.

 

Considering how CFTB installs JAWS on their systems & ships them out seemingly with no hardware testing, you wonder what they do to justify their $100 fee. If you have say four people sending out 20 systems each per day,, that is $8 ,000 of fees in a day. If your workers are volunteers, you pay them nothing. You do need workspace, however, you can run the shop in an industrial unit in a run-down area, long as it has good mail pickup. So you have rent to pay, a phone line, as well as a FAX line and possibly DSL or cable internet. This leaves a good pile of change to pay the Executive Director and Marketing staff. Sure buys much coffee for both the shop & office crew. Of course much depends upon how many systems they receive per day and how many blind buy. If they ship free Matter, the only cost is some duct tape to hold the cartons closed and an address label showing who it is going to.

Could I then copy that into a Word document and still have only the text?

I'm guessing that if I paste the copied text directly into a "Word"

My second question is, can I then take a word document that has all that

inaccurate and damaging allegations without fully

Computer issues happen with refurbished computers are used.
All of our computers have a one-year warranty and tech
support is provided for free.  We refund the money from
dissatisfied persons and we repair or replace parts that do
not work, some of which are damaged in shipping.
 Moving forward these issues should not occur very often.
Until recently, our donations of computers came from
corporate donations, small businesses and individuals.  The
computers received from individuals and small businesses we
much older than lose coming from corporate donors.  We have
recently received and will continue to receive large
donations of computers from corporate donors. These
computers will only be a few years old and are much faster,
last longer, and are more reliable that in the past.
CFTB funding - We have 6 staff members, 5 part-time and one
full-time as follows. Our 1 full-time staff member is our IT
manager.  The rest consist of myself as the Executive
Director, an operations manager, 3 customer service staff,
and one part-time technical support staff person that we
contract with. All the staff salaries are below the industry
rate.
Our cost per computer is over $200 per computer.  This
covers part of the cost of staff salaries, lease of our
refurbishing center, warehouse, utility bills, cargo van
expenses to pick up computers, outreach expenses, office
supplies, and so forth.  It also covers the cost of MS
license, repair and replacement of computer parts that are
broken or missing, etc.  Many of the computers do not come
with hard-drives, keyboards, speakers, mice, power cables,

Re: Not an Easy Question to answer

Gene
 

If you can read the text with review keys, then there may be no cursor, just text displayed.  Try an experiment.  Set the JAWS screen echo to all before issuing the final command to display the text.  Then, issue the command and see if it is read.  If there is more texxt, try page down and see if more text comes onto the screen and is read.  That may allow you to use the program for now. 
 
To set the screen echo, use either insert and, while holding it, type s.  If you hold insert and continue to type s, you will hear JAWS cycle through none, highlighted all, and then go around again.  You can go around as many times as you want.  The usual setting is highlighted.  So try all and see what happens.
 
As to the best way to make it accessible, that would probably be gbest understood and discussed by someone with technical knowledge who looks at the program.  I'm not sure what the best place would be for you to find such a person who would work on the project.  Aside from that, JAWS and NVDA might be able to be made to work with the programs, through scripts or Frames, in the case of JAWS.  But who does such work and whether they charge is something I don't know.  You could join the NVDA list and ask there.  But the first thing to do might be to find someone with proper knowledge to discuss the matter with the program developer.

The problem is that some things are read by a Screen Reader, and other

I can read this same text if I use the Mouse in Window-eyes.


But to just arrow down to the next line, and use the key command to read
that line, just will not read anything.


I have been in contact with the Author of this program, and so I would
like to give him some intelligent suggestions, other than , Hey, would
you make your program Screen Reader Friendly?


I doubt if they would know just what this means, or how to accomplish
this task.


What can some of you suggest to modify this program to be read with a
Screen Reader?


I ask, only because I don't know what causes one thing to be read, and
another to be unread.


And Yes, I know this question may have multiple answers.  Perhaps just

Re: Dropbox Question

Gene
 

If you uninstall the Dropbox program, I don't know what will happen.  If you leave it installed, sign up your new Dropbox account and stay connected, that is leave the new machine connected, all the files in your account will be downloaded to your new machine wherever Dropbox stores them.  Then, you can uninstall the old program.  I would suggest exiting Dropbox in the system tray first.  I assume you can also remove all the old machine's dropbox files while disconnected.

I have just eliminated over 50 gigs of files from Dropbox, yet when I look in the system tray, the Dropbox remains the same size. If I add something, it gets larger, but even after deleting these 50 gigs, it gets no smaller.

 

If I look at the size of the actual Dropbox folder on my computer, it shows up smaller as it should.

 

Is there some place on the DB website that I need to go to delete the files so that the actual size showing up in my system tray will be correct?

Re: extracting text without the formatting?

 

Hi,
My answers regarding your 2 questions are based on my own experiences so I don't know if it's 100% right. However, here it goes.
Regarding 1, I guess if you paste something into a Word document it always appear with its original formating.
Regarding 2, I strongly believe that Notepad will take out whatever formating as soon as you paste it on there.

Upgrading Microsoft Word

Abbie Taylor
 

I'm using Word 2013 with a Windows 10 64-bit desktop PC running NVDA. At times, it becomes unresponsive, especially when braille is connected. Usually, restarting NVDA resolves the problem. My display works fine with other programs, so I think it's safe to rule that out as the culprit.

So I'm considering upgrading Microsoft Word. I understand the 2016 version works well with NVDA, but is that the latest one? How much does it cost, and can I just get it and not the whole office suite? If someone has a direct download link, that would also be appreciated. Thank you.

Obviously, no captcha solving program that uses algorithms like Webvisum would be able to solve such a captcha.  Maybe a smart phone with the Be My Eyes app might work for solving this type of captcha, but certainly not Webvisum.

Not any more.  Unless you already have a Webvisum account, you can no longer create a Webvisum account for the first time, as I discovered yesterday.  In order for someone to register with Webvisum, they need an invitation code from an existing Webvisum account holder.  But when I signed in to my Webvisum account yesterday and submitted a request for an invitation code as a test, I instead received an email message with a new password that had been automatically generated by their email server, even though I specifically requested an invitation code.  So there is apparently no longer any means for an existing Webvisum account holder to obtain an invitation code to pass on to someone else who wants to create a Webvisum account for the first time.  And of course, because Webvisum was abandoned years ago by its developers, there is no means of contacting them.  Looks like the ball game may finally be over for Webvisum unless you already have an account.

If you want something free, you can use an old version of Firefox with Webvism.  I don't know what else is available that you pay for. 

 

If you want to use an old version of Firefox with Webvisum, let us know and list members can discuss how you do so.

Re: Dropbox Question

Hi. This leads to another dropbox question. I will be changing computers at work soon. I have a ton of stuff in dropbox, around 30 gig. If I remove the dropbox program from my old computer, please tell me I won’t loose all the content in the folders.

Dropbox holds the deleted files for 30 days in case you or the others that you share with, should need to recover deleted items.

I have just eliminated over 50 gigs of files from Dropbox, yet when I look in the system tray, the Dropbox remains the same size. If I add something, it gets larger, but even after deleting these 50 gigs, it gets no smaller.

 

If I look at the size of the actual Dropbox folder on my computer, it shows up smaller as it should.

 

Is there some place on the DB website that I need to go to delete the files so that the actual size showing up in my system tray will be correct?

 

Thanks.

Re: saving attachments

Shelly Kane
 

Thank you Ron!  I will try this.  Usually when I open an attachment, it takes me to word and I have to enter on it for the attachment to open and I see the message.  I will let you know what happens.

After you open the message with an attachment, without closing it, press alt + m for the message menu followed by H for the attachment sub menu item.  Under this menu, use your up and down arrow keys to highlight functions.  One of the functions is a save item. It usually shows the name of the file.  For example, if you have an attachment called dogs.DOC, there should be an item under the attachments menu called dogs.DOC sub menu.  use the right arrow to open this item and one of the choices is save.  Make sure you know where the files are being saved.  The default is either desktop or downloads.

Re: need a good accessible captcha solver

Hi list. Thanks for all the feedback. I appreciate it. I have a smart
phone and that will work for pictures. However, there are web sites
that use some kind of weird slide control which says: "bring the
slider to 100% if you are human." However, neither Jaws, voice over,
NVDA, or narrator seems to be able to get the slider to slide. *frown*
If I come up with anything that might help you guys, I'll let you
know.

Re: Cereproc TTS, anybody used their products?

Hi.  Thanks.  I assume then there should be no problem with jaws seeing it.  Walter

It would be a SAPI 5 synthesizer, so you would tell JAWS to use the SAPI voice.

Hi Guys.  There is a Scottish company called CereProc that does TTS voices.  I would like to purchase one of these but I'm not sure if it would be compatible with JAWS.

 

Has anybody used any of their TTS voices?  The samples given are very good quality and although many are easy on the ear I do like the "Heather" voice

 

I'll paste a link for this voice below but if you want to sample any other voices then the web site is www.cereproc.com.

 

If you have used these voices or know if they are compatible with JAWS (or NVDA) then I would appreciate your comments.  Walter.

 

Link to the Heather voice.
