Re: Do I install Window Eyes on my new 10 computer?

Hi,

The answer is easy then, 8.4 didn't support Windows 10 so you won't be
installing it.
It doesn't look like you can get the office version of Window-eyes anymore
either.
I went to Window-eyesforoffice.com and it redirected to GWMicro.com.

And there is another problem....I have only Window Eyes 8.4. I really don't
want to have my tech store to have to chase all over to get the right
version when I don't use WE hardly at all. Marilyn

I doubt installing Window-eyes will cause harm.  I don't know how much you can do with it, given how long it has been since it was worked on and the ongoing technical changes in Windows 10. So you may want to install it but it may make much more sense to use it during a transition to JAWS or NVDA or both.

Re: internships, sorry this is off topic

Pablo Morales
 

Hi Shelly,

There are other ways to earn experience, for example a volunteered job. Normally, internships are for students, or recent graduates. Out there are a large number of internships, and some are paid, and others are unpaid. It is important to clarify from the beginning, what the company expects from the intern. Since this will determine if the internship is paid or not. Now, there are internships for sighted and blind people, there should not be any difference. But, in the case that the company is not so convince about the cost of accommodations, your friend might need to request help or temporary help from the services for the blind office. If your friend is going to school, there should be a career center. They can be a good counselor in this case. Initially, What I would do is create a resume, with the intention of convincing a company to give the internship in return of my services. These services could be a professional service, interpersonal level, managerial level, and a long etc. So, your friend needs to be sure in which area wants to earn experience, look for companies that could give her this experience, and prepare a resume saying that her intention is an internship, and making sure that what is she offering is valuable for that organization. It is very important to clarify that her intention is an internship, since for companies is different the cost of an interned than an employee. Also, your friend will need to use a little bit of networking. Use LinkedIn, Facebook, and another web services. Ask around, ask to friends, family, friends of family. Her question will come to the ears of a company. I would also like to suggest that your friend contact National Federation of the Blind. They have a lot of experience with this type of situation, and they can be a huge help for your friend.
Sincerely,
Pablo

Re: Creating Archives Without a Top-Level Directory

Then do not go to the Books directory to archive the subfolders which are inside. Just archive each individual book inside of your Books directory where you have these specific books.

I know there was once a way to do this in either 7Z or Win-RAR, but
I've forgotten. Every time I create an archive, I get a top-level
folder, then whatever's underneath. Suppose I just want what's
underneath, without the top level. Example: I Have a directory called
"Books," in which I have five directories, one for each book. If I use
either 7Z or Win-RAR to archive the "Books" directory, I get an
archive with a top-level directory called "Books," then five directories
inside. What I would really like is an archive that does not have the
top-level "Books" directory, but only the five subdirectories. How is
this done? Or am I using the wrong tool perhaps?

It can be done the same way, only that instead choosing Winrar you choose 7-ZIP. But that's about the only difference there is to it.

In order to achieve this, you may get inside the main books folder and select all the concerned folders and then go through the winrar options. I am really not too sure about 7zip because I haven’t tried doing it with that software. I also don’t prefer top-level directories and always do it this way.
