Removing filters.

Carolyn Arnold
 

Another problem since Microsoft:

I need to remove Filters from Outlook. I used to be able to
press Alt+V+V and tab over to Filter, then Control+Tab to
Advanced, then Tab to Remove. Now, the Advance Tab only has
Edit, and maybe one other thing, tyhen OK and Cancel.

Any idea how to remove Filter so that I will know hoe many
messages I have for Tech Talk? Thanks.

If you have been adding and removing files over time, material is probably quite a bit fragmented.  If you have been only or mostly only adding files over time, it wouldn't be. 

 

Defragmenting was never part of disk cleanup. 

 

I'll have to look at the disk defragmentation dialog in Windows 7 again.  There is a problem in Windows 7 where if you tab to what you want to do in the dialog and activate it, often the wrong thing will be done.  So you have to listen to the letter of the thing you want to do as you move around and, once you know the letter, use that.  I'll look at the dialog and send another message later.

Dear Gene,
Well, Can you plese tell  me How to do a Disk Defrag of a External T - Drive
then, I thought it part of "Disk Cleanup"?
It used to be in  earlier versions of Windows, and you can probably tell I
am new to Windows 7, I used Windows XP for so long,  and earlier versions
going way back.
I am  sure this  T- Drive could use a Defragging, as I have never done one
on it, in the past 7, 8, perhaps 9 years I have been loading and unloading
Music and DVS Movies, BBC Dramatized Productions and Books to it.
Thanks Gene, or whoever can give me the steps to do this.
With best regards.
God Bless.

Fragmentation isn't related to disk cleanup.  Are you saying you ran defrag?
Defrag won't give you more disk space.  The purpose is to bring parts of
files together that may be scattered over a disk together and thus speed
performance.  Disk Cleanup removes unnecessary files.

Thanks for confirming what I thought about running disk cleanup on a drive
that doesn't contain the operating system or programs.

Dear Gene, You were absolutely 100 percent correct with your thoughts about
the result of a "Disk cleanup" on an external T - Drive!
I acquired exactly 0 extra storage space, even though I had been using this
Segate single Terabyte Drive for 7 or 8 years, and I put and took stuff
off and on for that many years!
I was sure some files would or should have been fragmented, but Nope!
Nothing, and I ran the "Disk Cleanup" twice and got the same results!  "0"!

In general, except for one possible case, I doubt that doing a cleanup would
accomplish anything. the purpose is to remove files that accumulate that
don't do anything but waste space.  The operating system isn't on the
external disks and you aren't running files on them.  You should have either
no or almost no useless files if you just use it for storage.  One thing I
don't know about is something like System Restore keeping a record of what
is on your drive.  I see no point in that, and, if it is monitoring your
drive, you might save room, I'm not sure how much, by stopping monitoring.
If the old file is left, that keeps information about the drive, you might
save room, but I don't know how much, if you remove the file.

But others who know more may comment on that.

joseph hudson <jhud7789@...>
 

Good evening everyone, is this a decline in says, the blind show classic cell phone is on its way from L S and S products. For those that were interested, on every view of the phone I've been doing some thinking. Instead of a right, don't get me wrong I'm still planning on doing the write up and sending it to the various tech groups that are included in this message tonight, but I was also thinking that you might get a better experience, if we had a Q&A session. So I was going to see if y'all wanted to have a Q&A on questions about the device. I shall have it in hand and ready to start using sometime next week. Because by the time some cards get here, and I get everything set up for me and learn a little bit more on how the device works, just from using it over the weekend I think I will be ready to start answering peoples questions on it by sometime late next week. The Q&A sessions, I would like to host them over zoom. I have a free account, but I think I can answer everybody's questions and go over the phone within about an hour. I will host serval of the sessions if there are more than 10 people at Want to join. So I may only hold one of these a month, but if in any interest, I will be glad to hold more you may go ahead and start reserving your seat and one of these sessions by either you sending me an email or a text message to the signature Number that is in my signature. And I will put your name down. Or even an old-fashioned phone call. Information I will need so that you can reserve your seat. Your name, Best times that work for you. And then I will take care of the rest thanks for taking the time to read this email, and I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend are week depending on whenever you read this.

J2020.1910.54.400 Download Link + What's New

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Below is the download link for the stable release of J2020.1910.54.400 + what's new in J2020.
 

32 & 64 bit download link:
 
 
What's new in J2020:
 
 What's New in JAWS 2020 Screen Reading Software
JAWS 2020
 
Features
 JAWS 2020 Features
Reduced Double Speaking of Form Control Prompts
 
When navigating and filling out forms on the web, it has become increasingly common for web page authors to include the prompt inside the control in addition
to assigning an accessible Tag for the control. While non-screen reader users only see the written prompt, those using a screen reader are getting both
the Prompt and accessible Tag in Speech as well as Braille if a display is in use. Often times, the web page author has assigned the same text for each,
so it appears the screen reader is double speaking. In JAWS 2020, we have greatly reduced the amount of double speaking of form controls as you navigate
using speech and Braille by comparing the prompt and these tags, and only speaking or brailling them both if they are different.
 
Zoom Meeting Scripts Added for an Improved Experience
 
Thanks to Hartgen Consulting, basic scripts for Zoom are now included directly in JAWS and Fusion to improve the experience when attending Zoom Meetings.
This platform is used for our quarterly FS Open Line program as well as the free training webinars we hold each month. These scripts offer a more pleasant
experience by giving more control over what you hear, without interrupting the flow as users enter or leave the room or make comments. Press INSERT+H to
view a list of JAWS keystrokes available in Zoom such as turning off alerts, speaking recent chat messages, and more. You can also press INSERT+W to view
a list of Zoom hot keys.
 
Hartgen Consultancy
 also offers more advanced scripts for Zoom Pro if you are interested.
 
Enhanced JAWS and Invisible Cursor Support for Windows 10 Universal Apps
 
For years, JAWS users have relied on the JAWS cursor (NUM PAD MINUS) and Invisible cursor (NUM PAD MINUS twice quickly) to review and interact with areas
in an application where the PC cursor cannot go. This includes reading textual information which is on-screen but not focusable, and interacting with controls
which are only accessible using a mouse as the mouse pointer will follow the JAWS cursor and NUM PAD SLASH and NUM PAD STAR will perform a left and right
click. However, the Off-Screen Model (OSM) which has traditionally been used to support the JAWS and Invisible cursors is becoming less and less available
as newer technology such as UIA, found especially in Windows universal apps like the calculator or the Windows Store, is now being used exclusively for
accessing screen content. This results in the JAWS and Invisible cursors becoming unusable when attempting to navigate in those windows. All you would
hear in those cases was "blank" as you reviewed the screen. This is because the modern technology currently in use is not able to be captured by the traditional
Off-Screen Model. In those cases, the only solution was using the Touch Cursor, something most users are not as familiar with.
 
JAWS 2020 now detects when focus is in an application where the OSM is not supported and will automatically use the new JAWS Scan cursor in these situations.
You will use all of the same navigation commands as you would with the traditional JAWS cursor or the Invisible cursors.
 
For example, if you open the Calculator or Windows Store in JAWS 2020 and press NUM PAD MINUS, you will now hear JAWS announce "JAWS Scan Cursor" as these
are apps that do not support the OSM. You can then use the ARROW keys like you always have done to move by character, word, line, as well as INSERT+UP
ARROW to read the current line, or PAGE UP, PAGE DOWN, HOME, and END. The mouse pointer will also continue to follow as it always has. The only difference
is that the cursor does not move from top to bottom or left to right. Instead, it moves by element the way the developer laid out the app.
 
While this works in many places, there are still some areas where more work by Freedom Scientific is required. For instance, if you use Office 365, and
try to read your Account version information with the JAWS cursor commands, it is still not possible to navigate and read in these places. That work is
underway and we plan to have an update for this area in the 2020 version soon. Stay tuned.
 
Convenient OCR Updated to Use the Latest OmniPage
 
The recognition engine used by the JAWS Convenient OCR feature has been updated to Kofax OmniPage 20, formerly owned by Nuance. This offers greater accuracy
when recognizing the text from on-screen images as well as text from images captured with a PEARL camera or scanner.
 
For users needing to OCR using Hebrew or Arabic, these languages are automatically installed with any English or Western European download of JAWS and
Fusion.
 
Virtual Cursor Toggle Now Tab Specific in Google Chrome
 
Today, there are many web apps where using the Virtual Cursor is not the best approach. An example of this can be seen if you use Gmail in the Chrome Browser.
In these cases, it makes sense to toggle the Virtual Cursor off by pressing INSERT+Z and then use this application with the PC cursor. Many users also
regularly open multiple tabs (CTRL+T) so they can easily access different sites such as GMail plus one or two other pages by moving between the open tabs
using CTRL+TAB. This can become frustrating as you need to constantly press INSERT+Z to get the right cursor in use as you switch between tabs.
 
Beginning with version 2020, we are introducing an option to help JAWS automatically remember the state of the Virtual Cursor for each tab once you set
it. It will also announce whether the Virtual Cursor is on or off as you move between various tabs. Once you close the browser, or restart JAWS, it will
default back to its default behavior so you will need to set this each day as you use it.
 
This feature is turned on by default. To toggle this option, do the following:
 
list of 5 items
1. Press INSERT+6 to open Settings Center.
2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default file.
3. Type "Tab" in the search field.
4. Press DOWN ARROW until you locate "Virtual Cursor On/Off based on Browser Tabs."
5. Press the SPACEBAR to change the option and then select OK.

Contracted Braille Input Enhancements
 
For ElBraille users as well as those who regularly use a Braille display with their PC, JAWS 2020 offers significant improvements when typing in contracted
Braille. In particular:
 
list of 5 items
• You should now be able to enter and edit text in numbered and bulleted lists in Word, WordPad, Outlook, and Windows Mail.
• Contracted Braille input is now supported in more applications including PowerPoint and TextPad.
• Improved Contracted Braille input in WordPad, especially when editing a numbered or bulleted list created in Word and opened in Wordpad. This includes
properly handling wrapped items which previously showed the number or bullet on subsequent wrapped lines, rather than indenting the text.
• Improved Contracted Braille input in Chrome, Google docs, and other online editors which can create bulleted and numbered lists.
• Typing rapidly using Contracted Braille in Microsoft Office as well as other applications should no longer result in text becoming scrambled.
list end
 
Updated JAWS Basic Training
 
The JAWS Basic Training has been updated to include the latest features in JAWS 2020. There will still be the same nine books, however each book has been
reorganized to be more task oriented as well as simplified to apply to more people in more situations. For instance, in the JAWS User Interface and Utilities
book, we won't be trying to show everything in the UI as we did in the past. Instead, we point out the most important things and where to find them in
both the menus and in the Utilities folder. This makes it easier for teachers, instructors, IT professionals, etc. to get an overview of where to find
things quickly.
 
To update a book, do the following:
 
list of 4 items
1. Press INSERT+J to open the JAWS application window.
2. Press ALT+H to choose the Help menu, and then press ENTER to choose Training.
3. FSReader opens and displays the JAWS Training Table of Contents which contains links to all of the available DAISY training books. Use the ARROW keys
to navigate to the book you want to open and then press ENTER. If the book is not currently on your computer or an updated book is available, FSReader
will automatically download and install it.
4. Repeat this process for each book you want to download.
list end
 
Toggle JAWS Sounds in Speech On Demand
 
Introduced in JAWS and Fusion 2018, Speech On Demand allows you to limit the amount of JAWS speech you hear as you navigate windows and documents or perform
other actions using hot keys and is activated using a convenient layered keystroke (INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by S). For JAWS users who rely heavily on
Braille or for users of Fusion that can see well enough to use the screen for tracking focus, too much speech can be overwhelming while navigating using
the keyboard and mouse. By default, when using Speech On Demand, JAWS only announces actions for a limited set of screen reading keystrokes such as reading
the current character, word, line, window title, and so on. Windows navigation commands such as moving to the next or previous character, line, or word
do not speak. Refer to the Speech On Demand topic in the JAWS Help for a full list of commands that provide speech in this mode.
 
JAWS and Fusion 2020 now allow you to specify whether or not JAWS generated sounds are heard when Speech On Demand is active. JAWS sounds include the sound
heard when pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR to perform a layered keystroke as well as the sound heard when completing an address in Outlook. By default, JAWS sounds
will continue to be heard. If you do not want to hear JAWS sounds when Speech On Demand is active or when speech is completely muted, open Settings Center,
expand the Speech Options group, and clear the "Play JAWS Sounds" check box. You can customize other Speech On Demand settings in this group as well.
 
Filter Control Characters in Braille
 
Depending on the application you are using, control characters may be used to represent certain document elements like page breaks or line breaks. JAWS
now allows you to configure whether or not these control characters are shown on the Braille display. By default, JAWS does not output these control characters
in Braille to help provide a smoother reading experience. However, there may be times when having control characters displayed in Braille could be helpful
when editing text.
 
To display control characters in Braille, open Settings Center, expand Text Processing, expand, Proofing, and clear the "Filter Control Characters such
as Page Breaks" check box. Control characters will be displayed correctly for both Computer Braille and Contracted Braille output.
 
General Changes in Response to Customer Requests
list of 9 items
• While browsing the internet, JAWS will no longer announce "Clickable" by default as you move to various content.
• You should no longer hear the message "Press JAWS Key+ALT+R to hear descriptive text" as you navigate form controls and certain other elements on the
web.
• Removed extraneous "Insert F1 Help" announcements that were heard when navigating through various controls on the web.
• By default in Word and Outlook, JAWS will no longer announce "Alt SHIFT F10 to adjust Auto Correction" when you move to something that was auto corrected
previously.
• JAWS and Fusion will no longer gather and announce the count of all the objects, misspellings, grammatical errors, and so on when a document is opened
in Word. This will enable documents to load much faster, including very large documents containing a lot of these items. You can always press INSERT+F1
for an overview of what the document contains.
• Improved responsiveness when closing Word after saving a document.
• The AutoCorrect Detection option, previously only available in the Quick Settings for Word, can now also be changed in the Quick Settings for Outlook
(INSERT+V).
• Pressing INSERT+W while focused in PowerPoint now displays a list of useful PowerPoint hot keys.
• In Google Docs, JAWS now announces the currently selected menu when you activate a menu or use LEFT and RIGHT ARROW to move between menus. In addition,
if a document contains lists, JAWS now indicates list item markers such as "1, 2, 3."
list end
 
Updated BraillePen Display Driver
 
Added an updated driver from Harpo in Poland to support their New BraillePen 14 Braille device in addition to the previously supported BraillePen 12T.
Now, all models are supported by this driver.
 
Improved JAWS and Fusion Installation for Multi-Lingual Computers and Applications
 
When performing a full installation of JAWS or Fusion 2020 on computers offering multiple languages for Windows or specific applications like Office, you
now have the opportunity to install additional JAWS languages to match the available operating system or application languages. This makes it more convenient
for agencies and other groups using multi-lingual systems as they can easily switch the JAWS user interface language to match the current operating system
language without having to uninstall and install a different version of JAWS.
 
On the main setup screen, choose the Options button to display a list of available JAWS languages for installation. Use the SPACEBAR to select the languages
you want to install and then select OK to continue. Once JAWS is installed, Use the Language menu in the JAWS application window to switch between languages.
Before switching the JAWS language, make sure you have configured Windows to use the matching language. Otherwise, JAWS keystrokes and other features may
not work as expected.
 
Note: This is not recommended for users who just want to read web pages or documents in a secondary language. For these users, you only need to install
additional voices for that language and allow JAWS or Fusion to switch automatically. Changing the User Interface of JAWS to a language other than that
of the Operating System will create problems trying to navigate and work with applications in the primary language.

does anyone know how to make the bookmarks list in brave show in a list

joanne
 

I am hoping there's a way to show my bookmarks list in a simpler way, using Brave, other than searching through the alt F menus and going to the various imported, etc., menus. I never could get a complete list to show in Chrome either, which doesn't mean there isn't one but I just didn't know it. If anyone can help simplify this for me I'd appreciate it. Otherwise I really like the Brave browser so far.

Hi Nancy,
 
When this happens to me when using the SendSpace Wizard, it usually means that all the files didn't download because of an transfer error of some sort, or something changed in the Preferences / Transfer settings.
 
One way to delete the files from the Wizard cue would be, open the Wizarrd then, shift + tab, to the list view and if there are any files here selectet them and delete them.
 
To check your Transfer settings, with the Wizard open press the, F10 key.
Now, tab or shift + tab to a list view and arrow up / down to Transfers.
Tab through these settings to, Automatically clear successful transfers from queue check box, and make sure this is checked. 
Tab all the way through to make sure your other settings are okay and press the, Okay, button to save if you made any changes.

Subject: [TechTalk] a sendspace question

Hi Group,


I am using win10, SendSpace 16+ and at least jfw 18.

I am having a situation with SS that I don't remember having before. In
the following example please see what is happening.


I have downloaded 3 files using SS. I want to DL a 4th. When I enter
on the 4th link, files 1-3 start downloading again.


Is there somewhere within SS where I can go and delete files 1-3 so they
won't keep trying to download? I have already downloaded 1-3, unzipped
them and filed them away so they should no longer be active on SS.


Thoughts and ideas on how to fix this problem. will be greatly appreciated.


Many thanks in advance


Nancy
