The reason for the Programs X86 folder is because if a 32 bit program is in that folder, a 64 bit version of Windows knows to run an emulator so 32 bit operations are translated into 64 bit operations and relayed to Windows in usable form.  So the program isn't actually running in 64 bit Windows per say, but operations in the program are made accessible to 64 bit Windows.

But which of those "program Files" folders contains the 64 bit programs?

NVDA and Eset

Samuel Wilkins
 

Hello all, has anyone else had problems with NVDA not working with ESET?  I'm using ESET internet security, but when I try to use it with NVDA, all I get is a blank window and every time I tab, it only says Unknown.  Is there a setting I need to change in ESET?  Thank you.

From what I've tested, none of the older eloquences are compatible with NVDA2019.3 and above.  I had to download the CodeFactory version and although it's not as smooth as the older eloquence synthesizer, it works pretty good.

 Hello,
Is Eloquence compatible with the new NVDA 19.3?
It's the best synthesizer out there and I wouldn't want to lose it to the new NVDA updates.  If someone could also tell me whether the ETI Eloquence found on Jeff's repository is functional with NVDA 19.3, it would be very helpful.

Re: accessing system volume information on Windows 7

Gene
 

This procedure is one that works in Windows XP, Windows 7, and probably in Windows 8 and Windows 10.
 
 
Open the run dialog. 
Type this exactly as written:
msinfo32
Press enter.
 
If you followed this procedure correctly and you get an improper result, then there is some problem other than with the instructions.

Re: accessing system volume information on Windows 7

What does doesn't work mean?  Since you have gotten two sets of instructions, at least one of which are likely to be right, we need to get more information.
 
I'll send instructions that will definitely work, if there isn't a problem with your Windows Volume control.
 
Press and hold the start menu key.  Type r while holding it.   
Type this exactly as written:
sndvol and press enter.  You are in the part of the Windows volume control where you change play volume.

Waltr2

Joe Orozco
 

Hi, I purchased Waltr2 on Jonathan Mosen’s recommendation on a recent
podcast. I couldn’t get the trial version to work, so I decided to
take a risk and upgrade to the full version. The software still does
not work with JAWS. I’m on the latest build of Windows 10, and for
whatever reason when I tab around the screen, the only thing I can
activate is the main sub menu with items like About, Check for
Updates, Support, etc. What are other people doing to make this thing
work? On the podcast, Jonathan was tabbing about just fine through the
various controls. I’m highly interested in replacing iTunes as a file
transfer source, so any suggestions on how to crack this accessibility
issue would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!--Joe

Re: Alternative to Dropbox

Joe Orozco
 

Google Drive, now known as Google One, gives you 15 gigs of free
space, including your email. People seem to think the accessibility
has dramatically improved. I’ve also encountered the device
restriction on Dropbox and hate it because I’ve accumulated nearly 15
gigs of free space through referrals. If you don’t mind paying some
money and want good reliability, OneDrive may also be another viable
option. Pcloud is certainly a good option, but I’m not sure what their
pricing looks like.

When you install the app, it puts a drive in your list of drives in This PC

Go to that drive, and just paste what you want in there, and it will upload to the online pCloud page!
