I didn't see a sharing tab when I was sharing an individual file.  I saw a sharing tab when I was looking at how to share a folder.  Are you on the folder name but you haven't opened the folder?  You should see a sharing tab if you open the properties while on the folder name.

I don't know if this will help.  I've never shared files.  If it helps, or solves the problem, it demonstrates the value of using logic and inference in solving computer-related problems.  I also have no sharing tab.  Perhaps a setting needs to be changed somewhere else to make it available.  But once I saw that, I asked myself, where is the most logical place I might find sharing.  I thought it would either be in the context menu, the file menu, or both.  It is in the file submenu.  Alt and then down arrow through it.  You will find a submenu called sharing.  See if it allows you to do what you want.

https://www.dummies.com/computers/pcs/how-to-share-a-folder-in-windows-7-and-windows-vista/


It gives step by step directions that I will paste below.


HOW TO SHARE A FOLDER IN WINDOWS 7 AND WINDOWS VISTA

The key to accessing information on a peer-to-peer Windows network is to share folders between computers. After a folder is shared, any other user on the
network can access it, using its files just like any folder on their own computer.

To share a folder in Windows 7 and Windows Vista, follow these steps:

list of 8 items
1. Right-click the folder you want to share.

You have to see the folder, not be “in” the folder.

2. Choose Properties from the shortcut menu.

The shortcut menu has sharing commands. But that type of sharing refers to sharing the folder between users on the same computer, not on the network.

3. Click the Sharing tab in the folder’s Properties dialog box.

4. Click the Advanced Sharing button.

5. In Windows Vista, type the administrator’s password or click the Continue button.

The Advanced Sharing dialog box appears.

image0.jpg

6. Place a check mark by the option Share This Folder.

7. If necessary, type a more descriptive share name.

The folder name already appears in the Shared Name box. Additionally, when other users see this folder available on the network, they also see your computer’s
name after the folder’s name.

8. Click OK to close the Advanced Sharing dialog box, and then click the Close button to discharge the folder’s Properties dialog box.


After the folder is shared, it appears with a sharing buddies tag on its icon.

image1.jpg

Other computers can access the shared folder on your computer. At this point, they have read-only access, which means that they can open files or copy
them from your PC but cannot add files to the folder, delete files already in the folder, or modify the folder. In order for them to do those function,
set folder permissions accordingly.


• No, you cannot share individual files — only folders.

• Because a compressed folder is really a file, you cannot share it unless it’s inside a shared folder.

• Share a folder within your personal area, or your “home” folder. Do not share any other folder, such as one in the Program Files or Windows folders.

• Do not share your account folder. Doing so is a security risk.

• Although, technically, you can share an entire hard drive by sharing its root folder, don’t. Sharing an entire drive is a security risk because it gives
everyone on the network access to everything on that drive.

• Sharing a folder doesn’t allow someone on the Internet to use that folder on your PC. Sharing works only with computers on the local network.

Dectalk USB gets it's power from the USB port.  If you are using it connected to a serial port with no USB you'd need the power supply or 9V battery.



Go to Synthesizer and braille manager.  Select add, then synthesizer, then you should find the Dectalk USB 64 driver.  Make sure you have the Access Solutions drivers installed for the Dectalk USB to function.

Re: some more Jaws and windows 7 questions

Gene
 

I don't know why you are having the full dialog being read problem.  I have one program where this happens when I use NVDA.  I don't recall if it does in JAWS but that is only one program. 
 
Is this a computer you got used or that wasn't necessarily a clean installation of Windows when you got it?  I doubt that repairing or reinstalling JAWS would solve the problem but you might want to try it.

Hi all,
 
Can you tell me why when we press control Jaws is not being interrupted?  If you are in a dialogue box even if you press tab that will not stop Jaws and start speech on the next element of the dialogue box. 
 
My next question is when we are reading a list view it will not say how many are in the list view and just keeps saying the same number.
 
One other thing that keeps coming up when he restarts is a dialogue that says,
set network location.  select the location for the home 2 network.  This computer is connected to a network.  Windows will automatically apply the correct settings based on your networks location.  Home network button.  work network button.  public network button.  Treat all future networks that I connect to as public networks.  don't ask me again, checkbox not checked.  Help me to choose link.  cancel button.
 
Any ideas of what this is?  I am confused about the reference to Home 2.

Thanks. That is useful information, Jim. I am compiling information to see

Carolyn, I use my IPhone with my bluetooth hearing aids, but you need
something else to do that. I have a ComPilot. It is small, and what it does
is direct the phone call from your IPhone to your hearing aids. But... you
have to have the right kind of hearing aid to do that. I have a brand called
Phonak. And, you have to have their high end hearing aid to use the
ComPilot. The ComPilot can also be used to direct TV shows to your hearing
aid directly. So, you hear the show at your volume you want, and whoever is
watching TV with you can have the volume set the way they want. My hearing
aids cost approximately $6000, and the ComPilot about $300. There is also a
microphone you can get for the ComPilot that helps you in places like
stores, and restaurants. If you are with someone, they can wear the
microphone, and you hear what they are saying very clearly. This helps in
crowds etc.
Anyway, if you want more info, write me off list if you like, or just answer
here. Hope this helps. Jim

Do any of you know if it is going to be possible to use Blue Tooth with Blue
Tooth capable hearing aids for my phone calls, and there not be a conflict
with VoiceOver? When we worked with it some yesterday at the audiologist's,
there seemed to be conflict. I think I have heard about people using it
though. I would not be streaming music.

Hi folks,
I do apologise if my request is somewhat off-topic but as a blind person
with moderate to severe hearing loss and using a hearing-aid myself, I'd
appreciate it very much if I can get a link of a deaf-blind e-mailing list
that discusses such issues. I've been using my Widex Senso Plus since 2006
and it's still working OK but I'll need a change sooner or later. Many
thanks.
Kind regards,
Tim.

Re: USB Dectalk question

Also, I thought I vaguely remembered reading something a long time ago about sharing folders.  I looked in the properties of a folder and there is a sharing tab.  Was the article you were sent dealing with sharing a folder or a file?  You may be able to share a file with what I told you in my last message.  You may be able to share a folder with the article you were sent a link to with what I told you in this message.

https://www.dummies.com/computers/pcs/how-to-share-a-folder-in-windows-7-and-windows-vista/


It gives step by step directions that I will paste below.


HOW TO SHARE A FOLDER IN WINDOWS 7 AND WINDOWS VISTA

The key to accessing information on a peer-to-peer Windows network is to share folders between computers. After a folder is shared, any other user on the
network can access it, using its files just like any folder on their own computer.

To share a folder in Windows 7 and Windows Vista, follow these steps:

list of 8 items
1. Right-click the folder you want to share.

You have to see the folder, not be “in” the folder.

2. Choose Properties from the shortcut menu.

The shortcut menu has sharing commands. But that type of sharing refers to sharing the folder between users on the same computer, not on the network.

3. Click the Sharing tab in the folder’s Properties dialog box.

4. Click the Advanced Sharing button.

5. In Windows Vista, type the administrator’s password or click the Continue button.

The Advanced Sharing dialog box appears.

image0.jpg

6. Place a check mark by the option Share This Folder.

7. If necessary, type a more descriptive share name.

The folder name already appears in the Shared Name box. Additionally, when other users see this folder available on the network, they also see your computer’s
name after the folder’s name.

8. Click OK to close the Advanced Sharing dialog box, and then click the Close button to discharge the folder’s Properties dialog box.


After the folder is shared, it appears with a sharing buddies tag on its icon.

image1.jpg

Other computers can access the shared folder on your computer. At this point, they have read-only access, which means that they can open files or copy
them from your PC but cannot add files to the folder, delete files already in the folder, or modify the folder. In order for them to do those function,
set folder permissions accordingly.


• No, you cannot share individual files — only folders.

• Because a compressed folder is really a file, you cannot share it unless it’s inside a shared folder.

• Share a folder within your personal area, or your “home” folder. Do not share any other folder, such as one in the Program Files or Windows folders.

• Do not share your account folder. Doing so is a security risk.

• Although, technically, you can share an entire hard drive by sharing its root folder, don’t. Sharing an entire drive is a security risk because it gives
everyone on the network access to everything on that drive.

• Sharing a folder doesn’t allow someone on the Internet to use that folder on your PC. Sharing works only with computers on the local network.

There is a step by step text file included.  You connect the dectalk to the pc, then find it in device manager under other and select update drivers from the context menu.  then point to the folder where the drivers are unzipped on your computer.


That should get you pointed in the right direction.

Dectalk USB gets it's power from the USB port.  If you are using it connected to a serial port with no USB you'd need the power supply or 9V battery.



Go to Synthesizer and braille manager.  Select add, then synthesizer, then you should find the Dectalk USB 64 driver.  Make sure you have the Access Solutions drivers installed for the Dectalk USB to function.

I'm old enough to remember when you could get a Cadillac for, I am thinking, if I remember right, $4,000, which is what I paid for mine. But, as Jim says, he's a musician, and he wants as much as he can get. As I understand it, mine have what hearig aids need, even Blue Tooth, but, as the audiologist said, "not all the bells and whistles." I take it that is the telephone loop and some kind of music adjust. I had those on my WideX, and I couldn't tell anything that they did.

Best regards,

aids cost approximately $6000, and the ComPilot about $300. There is also a
microphone you can get for the ComPilot that helps you in places like
stores, and restaurants. If you are with someone, they can wear the
microphone, and you hear what they are saying very clearly. This helps in
crowds etc. Anyway, if you want more info, write me off list if you like, or

Do any of you know if it is going to be possible to use Blue
Tooth with Blue Tooth capable hearing aids for my phone
calls, and there not be a conflict with VoiceOver? When we
worked with it some yesterday at the audiologist's, there
seemed to be conflict. I think I have heard about people
using it though. I would not be streaming music.

Yes, and sometimes they can give you a discount, depending on their connection to the company. Jim

I talked to my technician at House Ear institute here in LA, and he said, that as long as you keep your hearing aids up, that is, make sure you keep the maintenance of them up, that they will be good for many years. The ComPilot made replacing, but at $300, you can save up for that if necessary. I have had mine now for three years, and love it. Jim

I understand that, Jim, and the thing that is a problem is that within six years or so, we'll probably be told that we need new ones.

It's in the email. But I'll say again. The hearing aids ran approximately $6000. I saved up a long time to get them. Jim

I'm old enough to remember when you could get a Cadillac for, I am thinking, if I remember right, $4,000, which is what I paid for mine. But, as Jim says, he's a musician, and he wants as much as he can get. As I understand it, mine have what hearig aids need, even Blue Tooth, but, as the audiologist said, "not all the bells and whistles." I take it that is the telephone loop and some kind of music adjust. I had those on my WideX, and I couldn't tell anything that they did.

Best regards,

Carolyn

Jim said his were $6,000; mine were $4,000. I could have gone $7, with, as he said, "all the bells and whistles." I don't need hearing aids that are smarter than I am. My phone is bad enough.
