Hi all,
I have some problems here. I'm trying to open a program, but nothing happens. I try to open a file in the program, but the contents of the file doesn't display. What should I do? Also, I have a question. How do you adjust volume in JAWS?
Help would be much appreciated,
Ella


Re: settings for improving accessibility

Carlos
 

You will have to be more specific.  Settings in Windows?  And if so what version?  Settings in your screen reader?  And if so which one?  Your question is too general.

Hi everybody,

I am researching about settings that we could modify to improve accessibility or change  issues that are affecting accessibility. There is any kind of training or place where can I learn more about it?

Thanks for all,

Haha, yeah, I've herd of some pretty mind boggling tests that folks have done with the different cases. I baby my phone way to much to ever attempt them though. lol
At one time, I'd been looking at purchasing a case for a phone there at a T-Mobile store and I guess, to help me come to a decision the chick takes out her phone and from about shoulder height, drops it and sends it bouncing along the concrete floor. Not only did she end up selling me a case, but we got quite the laugh at the nice thunk her phone made as it bounced and rolled when she dropped it. grins
Take care.

Lol, you are right; these cases are wonderful! When I got my first one, the salesman threw his phone way up and kept hammering the desk with it. I'm talking loud enough to do serious hammering and damage. It didn't even touch the phone. One day I took a fall, skinning my face, arms, and knees in the process. Not a scratch on my phone.

Re: I-phone question

Jeremy <icu8it2@...>
 

I'm honestly not sure if it's just the way that I hold my phone or the case or both, but I think it's just the placement of the sensor, without the case that kinda throws things off and made it hop back and forth like that. Then again, I always felt like it was really awkward to use any phone without a case anyways. haha

In Windows 7, the only SAPI voice I have is Anna. Is there another one available? I think she speaks well, but she sounds somewhat muffled to me.

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] Windows10 Voices With Screen Readers

The voices that come with Windows are the "Microsoft Speech API Version
5" or SAPI5 voices. To set these up with NVDA:
1) Press NVDA+N (assuming NVDA is running. NVDA key is usually INSERT
on a desktop or CAPS LOCK on a laptop)
2) Press P for Preferences (it's the top item in the list so DOWN ARROW
once then ENTER is another way)
3) Press S for Synthesizer (second down this time so DOWN ARROW twice
then ENTER is your alternative). This brings up the Synthesizer dialog box.
4) The focus is in the Synthesizer drop down list and the default option
is "eSpeak". Press DOWN ARROW to go through the choices. Find
"Microsoft Speech API Version 5" and press ENTER.

This gets you to the SAPI 5 voices, but there are a couple of choices so
next up you can select the specific one you want if you don't like the
first one:

1) Press NVDA+N again.
2) Press P for preferences again.
2) This time you want "Voice settings" which is the third option down or
press V.
3) You start off in the "voice" drop down list. Press UP and DOWN
arrows to move through the available voices.
4) You can just press ENTER when you find the one you like, or you can
also use TAB to move through the other options (rate, pitch, how to
indicate capitals etc).

If you'd like a demo of the voices, I did a podcast with them here:
http://www.22point.com.au/podcasts/windows_10_podcast.mp3 Which
accompanied my initial look at Windows 10 quite a few months ago now
which was here:
https://22point.wordpress.com/2015/04/15/initial_look_at_windows_10/

Look through the newer blog posts to see my more recent stuff on Windows 10.

Re: I-phone question

Jeremy <icu8it2@...>
 

It's really any audio that you would here, be it from the call that's initiated and audio that may be coming from Voiceover while inside that call. The setting itself though seems to be strictly used for routing where a calls audio is supposed to go though. The only reason I mention that, is that it doesn't seem to be possible to have a call's audio come through the ear piece and have voiceover's audio coming through the larger speaker on the bottom of the phone at the same time. Also note that normally, if the proximity sensor were covered and a call's audio were being sent to the ear piece, the display is blacked out and it's mostly the call's audio that you'll get there. If, however, you have some of the weird issues I've seen in the automatic setting in that area, in which it sends audio to the ear piece, even if the sensor isn't covered, not only is call audio routed there, the display is still active and voiceover's audio also goes to the ear piece too, until you toggle the activation of the sensor with a finger or whatever.

This is especially problematic when you're trying to listen to a voicemail using the visual voicemail thing, but I think that's a separate issue that's needed to be resolved for a while now in IOS>

I do agree though, it kinda seems like a better place to have it some place under general or under phone, rather than in accessibility.

If it's the call audio, then why is it an accessibility setting and not just

Go to settings and general and accessibility and scroll down to call audio
routing and click on it and you will see the settings Auto (Which allows the
phone to decide) Speaker which will send all calls to the speaker phone and
BT which will send all calls thru a Bt device of some kind. For wired ear

Re: For NVDA Users: Great New Weather Add On With Greatly Expanded Features

Subject: [TechTalk] For NVDA Users: Great New Weather Add On With Greatly Expanded Features

Hi Group,

I am an NVDA user and for a while now, it has had a basic weather add on
wherein you can use a few keystrokes to determine your own local weather
conditions. It was quite basic and gave you just a very brief forecast
and the sky and temperature conditions.

Now there has been made available a great new add on with many more
features. It is set by zip code from the NVDA preferences menu rather
than by editing a text file buried in the NVDA settings. It gives a one
day and nine day forecast as well as configurable zip code settings for
multiple locations. You set up your own default zip code under zip code
management and then as many as you want afterward that could be accessed
with a keystroke which will be temporary until you restart NVDA or the
add on.

Now here is the information I have made available to some other lists.
The original developer's page was in Italian, but I was able to
translate it and find the download link. I have given the download link
via a send space link to make it easier for anyone who wants it. While
the developer is Italian, the add on defaults to English so no need to
worry about that. See below.

Hi Group,

Using QTranslate, I was able to ferret out where the download link was
on the Italian page.

Here is a Send Space link:
weather_plus3.2.nvda-addon (656.16KB)
https://www.sendspace.com/file/u68vbk

In addition, thanks to QTranslate, here are the description, features
and command you need to know to use the program. In my opinion it is
great. You must first set the zip code from the preferences/Weather
Plus Menu in the NVDA program itself before the temporary zip code
feature will work.

Weather Plus
Version: 3.2 - 11.25.2015
This plugin adds local temperature and weather during the current 24
hours and forecasts up to 9 days for NVDA
Located in: Czech, French, English, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese,
Portuguese-Portugal, Russian, Spanish, Slovak, Serbian.
operation and commands:
NVDA + w to the current weather report.
NVDA + shift + w to the provision in the current 24 hours and the next 9
days.
NVDA + control + shift + w quick call to insert a temporary Zip Code.
NVDA + alt + w to know the date of the last update bulletin weather.
Control + shift + w Switches the measuring scale of degrees of Celsius
and Fahrenheit.
Warning!
Carefully read the documentation called up from the Preferences menu,
Weather Plus Settings for instructions on how to enter the Zip Code of
your city

The zip code feature is interesting, but the documentation does not
explain it precisely. What you need to do is to go into preferences for
the add on via NVDA menu/preferences/weather plus. Then set up your
default zip code and others you may want to check. You can set a large
number if you want, but remember to set your own as the default. Then
when you invoke the keystroke NVDA + shift + control + W, a list will
come up from which you may set a zip code temporarily.

Hi Carlos,

Thank you for correcting me. I was thinking of transferring the DBX
files from 1 computer to another. i.e, XP outlook Express to Windows 7
Outlook Express. If this needs to be done, here are the steps:
From: Rick Justice
I tested this by copying folders from Outlook Express on Windows XP, and
pasting them into Outlook Express on Windows 7 64-bit.
Whether your system is set to show or hide hidden folders should have no
affect, since you are accessing each location with a direct file path.

How to copy and transfer your messages in Outlook Express from one
computer to another:
1. If you are using Identities in Outlook Express, open the Identity you
want to transfer messages from.
2. Go to Tools, then Options, and then the Maintenance tab.
3. Here, tab to the "store folder" button, and spacebar that.
4. Now, tab twice and you should come to the file path where the folders
are stored, this path is already highlighted, so just copy it to the
clipboard, cancel your way out of the dialogue, and close Outlook
Express.
5. Press the Windows key + the letter "R" to open the Run dialogue, paste
the file path from the clipboard, and press enter.
Doing this will place you in the proper Identity folder where your
messages are stored.
6. Next, copy the folders here that contain your messages, and put them
in a location that can be accessed by the other computer.
This could be a USB flash drive, or some network location for instance.

Note:
If you have more than one identity in Outlook Express, you will need to
repeat the steps above for each identity.

7. Open the same identity in Outlook Express on the computer you are
transferring the messages to, and create folders with the same names as
the ones you copied from the first machine, then follow steps 2 thru 5 as
shown above.

Note:
When creating the new folders, they must have the exact same name as the
folders on the first computer.

8. Now navigate to the location where you saved the original folders, and
copy them to the clipboard, then return to the Identity folder you just
opened in the step above, and paste the folders there.
Note:
If the folders have been named properly, you should get a dialogue
telling you that the location already contains folders with the same
name,, so just tab to the copy and replace button, and spacebar that.

9. Finally, open Outlook Express and the proper identity and check to
see if your messages are in the folders you created.
Rick

Take care.
Mike

Unfortunately, that folder stores the .dbx mailbox files, but it does not store account information.  Account information is stored in the registry as I described in my previous message.

Hi Curtis,
 
You might have to unhide files & folders in Tools / Options / View tab for the Local Settings folder to show if you have files & folders hidden.
Here's the file path to the OE identities:
C:\Documents and Settings \ User Name \ Local Settings \ Application Data \ Identities
 
Take care.
Mike

Hi. I have a dear friend who has XP, on a dead computer, where
Outlook express resided, and he needs the accounts information.
He wishes to know which files in Outlook express contain the account
information, where to find them in XP, since he cannot run Outlook
express on that computer, but can at least get into the hard drive
using another computer.
He cannot boot with that drive on another computer since I think the
OS is from a computer which demands the same motherboard be used to
run the OS, but at least he can access the drive to gather the proper
files which contain the account info.
THANKS guys! ladies!

Re: Digital recorders

Shirley and All:

Thanks for the suggestion. So far, from Maxi-Aids, I've found


"The Wilson Digital Voice Recorder
Record & Play up to 12 Hours of Messages on the Go

List Price: $49.95
Our Price: $39.95

• Record and play back multiple messages

Add, delete and download messages to your PC
Clips to belts, purses and car visors

Includes clip, USB cable & ear piece

Uses 2 AAA batteries (not included)


Does anyone know if this talks? What size is the jack? I may like to substitute earphones for the ear piece. Does anyone have a Wilson Digital Voice Recorder and can comment on how accessible it it is?

Thanks,

Margaret

You can get a note recorder, rather than the complete digital recorder.
Its cheaper. You cant do as much with just the note recorder, but it
will work if you want just to record notes or small items. If your in
the UK the RNIB sells them for 39 pounds.

I'm also interested in this thread. I'm primarily interested in
making reminders, adding items to a list when the original note has
been made, inserting an appointment in the correct place also once the
original note has been recorded. I'm currently using my original
version Victor Reader Stream and can make quick notes, but the notes
function doesn't seem to do exactly what I want.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, the same is true in Windows 7 and later.  If he trusted me enough to send the
Ntuser.dat
registry hive file, I could extract the information, make the corrections to the .reg file, and then send it to him.  Again
Ntuser.dat
is located in the folder
Documents and Settings\UserName
on the source drive.

thanks guys, I suspected as much, and told him, but . . . he wishes in some way to get the info out. :)
I wonder if the same is true in windows 7 and higher? :)
